Inequality, the Left’s new buzzword

STEELEThe new meaning of “inequality” is, “If you own it, it’s inequality, unless you give me my share.” Inequality is the new fuzzy thinking of the Occupy Wall Street protestors. Their rapidly evolving transformation is from American self-reliance to a life style that can best be described as a juvenile yearning for the comforts of the mother’s milk of government dependency. The new credo, “You take care of me,” belongs to young adults whose thinking process appears to have been warped by a combination of perennially hostile liberal bias, the education establishment, unions, national media and the immediate undermining influence of Obama’s bully pulpit, implicitly reminding them that since they aren’t rich, then those who have attained wealth accomplished it by screwing the have-nots out of their fair share.

An OWS advocate, co-conspirator, on TV recently, defended the “movement” as justified by “inequality.” Nice word, “inequality” with all the same phony liberal brainwash implications including “income disparity, social justice, fair share, corporate greed” and tax hikes as “revenue enhancements.” All part of the Obama vocabulary of obfuscation to camouflage the real insidious plot of the whole progressive movement – “spread the wealth.” – generating the latest justifiable ridicule: “Taxpayers who vote for Obama are like chickens voting for Colonel Sanders.” Trouble is, with 52 percent of the population not paying taxes, the tax payers are the ones getting plucked.

To put the situation in the spotlight, Scott Adams, the creator of the “Dilbert” comic strip recently wrote this true assessment,” Somewhere in Washington our leaders are furiously planning an economic death spiral. It will start innocently enough with a modest tax increase on the rich, the same way you might pluck a chicken to give it fair warning before you barbeque it.”

The trouble is that with the Nanny State, mother’s milk addiction has become a proven vote getting program with a record of success at bankrupting governments all over the world – Greece, Italy, Europe, and the U.S. only steps behind, with S. America soon to follow.
One of the worst, Argentina, the home of Peronism, according to Mary Anastasia O’Grady, long time expert on Central and South American affairs in an article entitled, “Argentina’s warning to America,” said, “It abandoned free markets . . . in the interest of social justice. The predictable result has been greater injustice, more poverty, and increasing concentration of wealth and power in the hands of the political class and its friends.”

O’Grady quotes President and Peronist Cristine Kirchner, “I don’t know if Obama has read Peron, but it sure seems like it.” Peronism represents a form of labor controlled dictatorship that rejects American constitutional commitment to the rule of law, openness and individual liberty. Inequality – the harmless buzz-word that excuses radical measures to establish “equality” or as Pat Buchanan recently wrote, “Egalite’ – the French Revolution, the Bolshevic Revolution, Mao’s Revolution of 1949, Castro’s Revolution of 1959 and Pol Pot’s Revolution of 1975.” Obama and his words do have meanings that like the chicken, will leave you plucked and barbequed.
