Inequality

President Obama’s signature achievement is in shambles. I mean his wholesale reform of the American health system.  He believe himself that it cannot be saved. He is going for left- radical broke. Today he denounced “inequality.”

I am not sure younger people have the sophistication to realize that there are thousands of ways to measure inequality and that, therefore, you can always find one that serves your political purpose.

I don’t know how many could tell me what’s wrong with inequality.

By the way, I am far from rich myself, although I have worked all my life, not very hard, it’s true. (Did you notice how I often give you the answers to the questions I raise?)

About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.

    Lets see how Obama might think he’s qualified to lecture us about inequality:
    1. Abandoned by a black alcoholic father who impregnated a left wing free spirited mother who had little time for him.
    2. Raised by his white grandmother who was an officer in a bank in Hawaii.
    3. Attended the best private grade school in Hawaii.
    4. Went to Occidental College, then Columbia, then Harvard Law. Grades are a state secret. Affirmative action=equality in action?
    5. Member of black nationalist congregation pastered by Rev Wright. We are not allowed to reference the 20 years he went there.
    6. Got job at University of Chicago lecturing in of all things constitutional law.
    7. Went from community organizer to Senator after dirty tricks campaign slipped him in.
    8. Wife Michele went to Princeton and Harvard then got Cush show up job at a Chicago hospital. Affirmative action and political patronage.
    9. When family travels they use three 747’s. One for Barack, one for Michele and one for the two daughters. He lectures private industry leaders about unfairness of “corporate jets”.
    10. Kids go to best private schools in country.
    11. Michele’s mother lives at the White House. Poor thing.
    12. Brother lives in a hut in Africa. Inequality?
    13. Vacations at Martha’s Vinyard with rich and famous.
    14. Only the best for queen Michele. Clothes, lavish vacations, all the trappings.

    This is only a partial list. It proves one thing. Socialism is for the people, not the socialists. That’s inequality at its finest, so I guess there are few people more qualified than Obama to teach us this. I can’t wait till 2016, this amateur is killing us.

  2. Bruce: You are mostly right, of course but not (NOT) a “black” father. That implies an American victim of American slavery and segregation. Barack Obama is neither. The Africans on his father’s side were Muslims coastal people likely to have been engaged in slaving against the pagan interior tribes.

    Mr Obama was also partly raised by an Indonesia Muslim stepfather. I don’t know if it matters but it should not be hidden.

    You forgot that Michelle’s $300,000 job was so important it was not filled after she left.

    You also forgot the vacation in Spain’s millionaires’ coast.

    Well, nobody is perfect!

      Thanks for filling in the blanks, it’s why I love your blog.
      Obama confuses equal opportunity with equal outcome. A system of affirmative action based on the latter propelled him to the highest office in the land. Equal opportunity alone would have left him community organizing with a community college associates degree. Not a bad thing, just not greatness. I may have left out the biggest privileges Obama has been given. Immunity from criticism. Can you imagine going through your entire life shielded from anyone taking exception to your thoughts or actions?Perhaps not completely insulated, but with an army of liberals ready to label any criticism as being racist. Only recently has the narcissist in chief had any serious questions raised by the progressive media types, and he can’t deal with it.

  3. I like the “community college associate degree.” Nice touch!
