President Obama Dropped His Non-Marxist Mask

President Obama Dropped the non-Marxist Mask! Now we know his inner self.

Was it a gaffe?

Was it a Freudian slip?

Was President Obama’s comment pre-planned?

He said it.

The President was off teleprompter.

He meant it.

No more smiling mask hiding the truth.

He really hates the successful.

At a Town Hall in Roanoke, Virginia Friday night he mimicked Karl Marx on capitalism. Agree or disagree with Marx, at least Marx was a serious student of economics and philosophy.

The President though is a dilettante, who attributed unemployment to ATM’s and electronic airport kiosks. His solutions to rising gas prices include proper tire pressure, tune ups, and algae.

Karl Marx argued that employers and the bourgeois (we can call the bourgeois the middle class) exploited labor by paying them less than the value of their products, which will ultimately result in the tyranny of the proletariat. We saw how well that worked with the Soviet Union.

President Obama does not believe the successful deserve their success. Therefore, they must be made to redistribute their ill-begotten gains to the less successful and less fortunate. It’s simply a matter of fairness.

Here’s what the President said Friday night while expressing his frustration with those opposing his proposed tax increases

“Look if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get them on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was so smart.”

“If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that. Somebody made that happen.”

Let’s think about this a moment. Steve Jobs was therefore not a genius in creating the Apple 11+, the IMac, IPod, ITunes, IPhone, and IPad. Nor was he a success in turning Pixar into a Hollywood powerhouse after George Lucas failed with it.

 Steve Jobs exploited Xerox by acquiring, for a price, the mouse and graphic interface, which Xerox didn’t know what to do with. 

Following President Obama’s reasoning, Steve Jobs simply exploited Steve Wozniak, Sony’s Walkman, Xerox, George Lucas, and John Lesseter.

How else can we explain a college student who tuned in, turned on, and dropped out, followed by going to India searching for his own guru, being such a creative genius. He must have exploited others because he was neither an engineer nor programmer.

All Steve Jobs could do was perceive the need for products we didn’t know we needed, and then design and market them as a quality product in a commodity market.

Two high school students in Seattle, Bill Gates and Paul Allen, saw the future of computers. They taught themselves to be outstanding programmers. They must have been lucky in convincing IBM to let them supply the operating system for IBM’s PC. They then went out and purchased for $50,000 QDOS from Seattle Computer Products. It became MS-DOS with their programming improvements.

Bill Gates thereby exploited IBM by convincing the computer company to let Microsoft retain the rights to the operating  system.

Let us not forget Sergey Brin and Larry Page, who dropped out of the Ph.D. program at Stanford after convincing (exploiting) Stanford University to license to them the algorithm patents, which became the basis of Google.

Poor Stanford!

They must have been lucky to follow in the shoe steps of Bill Hewlett and David Packard who set up HP in a Palo Alto garage with the support of Stanford Professor, Dean, and Provost Frederick Terman, who is the father of Silicon Valley.

They were simply lucky that Yahoo was so poorly managed.

Successful entrepreneurs also include the neighborhood deli, corner grocer, bodega, Ace hardware store, auto dealer, tire shop, bike shop, restaurant, the bakery, pharmacist, doctor, realtor, financial advisor, layer, barber, antique store, or repair shop. According to President Obama, they do not succeed by the sweat of their brow, but only because someone else, the government, did it for them.

All large companies trace their roots to small business entrepreneurs.

All these small business entrepreneurs often want is for the government to get out of their way. They don’t need President Obama’s help.
