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.
