To the Editor:

President Obama has initiated the latest distraction from his illegal implementation of “Obamacare,” his failure to prevent the murder of four State Department employees in Benghazi, and his effort to legalize all of the illegal aliens in the U.S.

This distraction is called “income inequality” and focuses on the business men and women who create jobs, hire employees and pay their wages.

For some reason, the fact that these business leaders reward themselves for their hard work is a sin in the eyes of a man who has never had to make payroll or produce anything other than hot air.

The evidence that this is a distraction and not a real problem is in the people who are not considered “criminals” for the money they make.

Hollywood stars, who enthusiastically support him but produce nothing of lasting value, are exempt from attack.

Union leaders, who drain the life out of their members to fund enormous salaries and perks, are not mentioned in his attacks.

The National Football League is still tax-exempt and there is no effort to change that.

In fact, all professional sports figures and organizations are exempt from his call to redistribute income from the most productive Americans to the least productive.

If President Obama was serious, he would be proposing caps to the salaries of these unproductive people so that the excess could go to the people who fill the stadiums and theaters.

The thing that I find most amusing in this whole bogus issue is that the people that President Obama are attacking poured money into his campaign coffers for both of his election campaigns. In a very real sense, they are reaping what they sowed by supporting a socialist to become president.

    Simply review communist and marxist doctrine and dogma, and you will see revealed to you the modern "progressive" and "liberal" agendas.

    Then pop open a history book and see how these movements turned out for millions across the world.

    Then vote accordingly. Preferably after impeaching obama and repealing the majority of legislation passed by his regime.

    You are so right---But will have to add too,

    The ones not so well off, who sold their vote thinking they were going to get over, Just because a man, who they did not know, and who just showed up one day' told them -Yes they can- get over. Or that's the way the voter understood him to say.

    But it isn't going to happen like that after all, It seems a few dollars and benefits were given, But a lot is going to be expected in return in the future.
    Maybe never to know the freedoms as has been known in the past. It will include the one who has been duped and those who they may love.

    To be talked into doing away with the person ( the business owner)who has been the reason they have been able to make a livihood is ridiculous . To be talked into it by a group of political strangers is even more so.
    The worker has the easy part of earning money, The ones they work for, has the harder part, They have to find the work for the employees.

    The workers used to have 40 hour work weeks and any thing over would be entitled to extra dividends, but, Those days are going to be over .Due to the genius' that has made that decision with a medical program,which a majority didn't want, was forced upon the worker,

    I have never believed anyone who was able to have the knowledge to start a business which could employ 5 -10 or hundreds + had taken advantage of anyone. If they had the knowledge in how to do this, more power to them.
    I'm not going to be sold the bill of goods that they owe me anything that hasn't been worked for .
