Pennsylvaniastan: Why You're One 'You're Fired' From Blowing Up Walmart
If you can read this blog, you're surprising the heck out of Barack

Senator Obama this week at a fundraiser answered the question "What's the Matter with Pennsylvania."
After listing how President Clinton and then President Bush and "each successive administration," whoever that is, failed to provide jobs and money, Senator Obama outlined what he obviously feels are the bitter and ugly consequences. "It's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."
Senator Obama is deeply mired in leftist philosophies: moral relativism, multi-culturalism, open borders, and on and on. One of the most sacred of cows on that side of the fence is the basic philosophical understanding of the unwashed masses as being essentially incorrectable evolutionary throwbacks, cavemen ... barbarians.

When the left speaks of terrorism, you are urged to understand why they are so; that times are tough and Americans have so very many Starbucks, oughtn't that lessen the guilt for beheadings? It is the same with criminals ... what happened to them to make them so?
Gangs? Lack of prosperity. Drugs? Lack of hope. Theft? Lack of Wiis. On down the line, there are bad behaviors that Obamites want put "in perspective." Excepting, of course, being rich. There's obviously no excuse for that (well, being an Obamite eases the stigma of wealth.)
So now Obama looks to Pennsylvanian small town Americans and what does he see? He sees what people from his philosophical school always see when they look at someone who didn't spend their early twenties lounging amid heavy conversation and heavy smoke at three in the morning among the ivy, "revealing" Marx to one another and using words like "proletariat" and "munchies", describing people like Al Gore as cerebral and admiring the spirituality of Richard Gere. He sees what he sees when he looks at people who live outside of Chicago, New York or Europe, or people who attend other churches. He sees a savage.
Savages are ruled by their fortunes. If you don't coddle them into college they're likely to be pimps, or gangbangers, or thieves or terrorists or ... small-town Christian gun-owners? (aside: Yes I said Christian. After Protestants and Catholics the state breaks down about 4% Jewish, 1% Muslim and .44% Mormon. So, yeah, he was talking about Christians.)
Don't take my word for it, listen to Obamite Jack Cafferty on CNN. He says, "The people are frustrated. The people have no economic opportunity. What happens to folks like that in the Middle East, you ask? Well, take a look. They go to places like al Qaeda training camps."
Senator Obama and his wife Michelle, like many from their side of the aisle, think that there's something the matter with you. If you believe in your second amendment freedoms, if you go to Churches that fail to focus on how white people are sticking AIDS all over the place, or if you think the government ought to have some inkling of who is coming and going across our borders, or worst of all, if you are a Republican ... well then you're really just one more curious little byproduct of a failure to redistribute income.
All us little people out here in the world who have not ascended to the heights of a more perfect liberalism, we're all the same. Whether it's owning a pistol, or using one to execute Beslan schoolchildren, Barack knows what ails us. Couple of jobs, maybe a free mole removal, little bit of Robin Hooding, and we'll be all set, ready to be led. We won't turn to guns and Jesus, if only we can afford cable. It's the materialism, stupid. (And he definitely means the stupid part).
