Chump change

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

Pres­i­dent Obama re­cently called present deficit spending “un­sus­tain­able” and warned of sky­rock­et­ing in­ter­est rates for con­sumers if the U.S. con­tin­ues to fi­nance gov­ern­ment by bor­row­ing from other coun­tries.

If he truly be­lieves this, why is he push­ing his­tor­i­cally high deficit spending that will lead to very high in­creases in our cost of liv­ing and de­crease the value of the dol­lar? That will de­crease the buy­ing power of 401ks and fixed pen­sion val­ues? Is this the “change” that he ran his cam­paign on?

If you want to find the source of his us­ing the word “change” read the book “Rules for Rad­i­cals” by Saul Alin­sky, who started the school for com­mu­nity or­ga­niz­ers in Chicago. He died be­fore Mr. Obama got to Chicago but he taught all of the com­mu­nity or­ga­nizer leaders who taught Mr. Obama. Alin­sky’s book is con­sid­ered re­quired read­ing for com­mu­nity or­ga­niz­ers and any­one on the far left. If the pres­i­dent con­tin­ues to fol­low the book we are in for chaotic times.
