Neal Boortz Rant
One of my personal favorite talk show host just kind of went off yesterday:
Boortz Rant: Is the American Dream dead? | Nealz Nuze | www.boortz.com
Forty percent of Americans think that our economy is in a permanent state of decline and will never get better. Five out of ten Americans, one out of two, think that there is virtually no chance that their children will have better lives than they did. That has been the American dream for generations. For generations that has been the American dream Ė that Iíll work hard, Iíll care for my children, Iíll nurture them, Iíll see that they are educated, and they will have a better life than their parents had. That dream is gone. It is going.
At this point, to be completely honest and absolutely honest with you, my disgust and contempt for Barack Obama grows every time I see his picture, every single time I see that face and every time I hear him speak.
Iím 66 years old and I love this county, and I thank God every day that I was born in this country. My father was born on a farm in Central Texas to German immigrants and joined the Marine Corps in WWII. Because he joined the Marine Corps, his standard of living rose above his parents. Every one of his kids Ö he had three Ö their standard of living rose above what he enjoyed, and Iím hoping it will be the same for my daughter. But it stops there. Americans have lost that confidence.
This standard of living we have in this country was not brought to us by government; it was brought to us by free people working in an economic system of capitalism and free enterprise, where every individual out there was empowered to pursue their dreams as far as their dreams would take them Ö with the rule of law always out there to protect them from predators Ė the economic predators, the criminal predators Ė always out there ready to protect them. It was the free enterprise system that created a standard of living unsurpassed by any other economic system anywhere in the world in the history of civilized man, and then the people of this country put a man dedicated to the destruction of capitalism and free enterprise in the White House.
As late as the 1980s, this man, Barack Obama, was a dedicated Marxist revolutionary. Then his zeal was tempered somewhat because he finally figured out that there wasnít going to be a Communist revolution in the United States. His father was a Communist. His mother was a Communist, and when his father disappeared from his life, his mother took on a lover who was a Communist. He hung out with Communists in college. He gravitated toward Communist professors in college. And now he is president of the United States?
This is a man who, when he decided that he was going to finally enter the political realm, decided that he would make that announcement in the home of two dedicated Communist revolutionaries: Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers. Everything about this man -- from his childhood, through college and his entry into politics -- everything about him is infused in Marxism and anti-capitalism and a hatred for the private sector and free enterprise and a love of government. And he becomes president of the United States. And now people think the American dream is over Ö that our free market economy is in permanent decline and will never get better. Surprised? Not me.
His show is always on when I'm sleeping, which is disappointing. The handful of times I've actually gotten to listen to his show I've really enjoyed it.
Might try recording it with Dar.FM and see if that listening experience works out for you. It's a 'dvr' for radio, you then listen via your phone (Android or iPhone), computer, or download the file to a mp3 player. There are several stations carrying Boortz to choose from, or any other host under the sun for people working other times of the day.
I've been using it for awhile, not the slickest experience in the world just yet, but it does the job.
