Democrat Complaints about Income Inequality is Childish

Income inequality is not a result of government failure.  It is a result of individuals failing to realize their questionable potentials. It is failing to take the next step on the road to success.  It is getting tripped up by the loose shoe lace of inattention.

Income inequality is like athletic inequality. Some kids are whizzes with a bat and ball and some can’t run to first base. Such is such and some are born with less and some with much.

Or income inequality is like beauty inequality.  You get dogs like Melissa McCarthy and beauties like Kate Moss.  This is not the fault of the government.  It is an accident of birth. Thank God that all girls are not ugly.  Thank God that there is Ford Modeling Company to counter fat movie characters like Precious Jones.

Or there is disease inequality.  Some kids are born with brain cancer and some are healthy as can be. The nanny state does not create tumors.

Life is not a communistic exercise in totalitarian control.  It is a free shooting and wild enterprise.  It is what it is.  Obsessive compulsives like Obama try to put the world together like little Lego blocks.  But life will not allow him to bully the plastic into his designs.

Life is beautiful.  Life is unfair.  Grow up.  Get used to it.

As Obama lives larger and larger he claims he wants to eliminate income inequality.  Why doesn’t he just give away millions of his dollars and move into a cardboard box in front of a church on Madison Avenue?

Obama is playing the same old tune he has been playing on his broken guitar for years.

Americans, put your fingers in your ears.  His rhetoric will kill you.
