Do you mean “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country”?

"Our first Thanksgiving should be interpreted as an expression of gratitude to God, not so much for the great harvest itself, as for granting the grateful Pilgrims the perception to grasp and apply the great universal principle that produced that great harvest: Each individual is entitled to the fruits of his own labor. Property rights are, therefore, inseparable from human rights. ... If man abides by this law, he will reap abundance; if he violates this law, suffering, starvation, and death will follow, as night the day. ... This is the essential meaning of the two great Commandments, ‘Thou shalt not covet' and ‘Thou shalt not steal.'" . . . economist, lecturer, writer, Sartell Prentice, Jr. - in reference to Governor William Bradford's journals in the early 1620s . . .

Ferguson Too Complicated for Easy Allegory

Ferguson is primarily about, ignorance, hatred, stupidity, misdirection . . . and, perhaps even some “racism.” Black on white racism.

Maybe President Obama is Just Trolling?

You have the title wrong, Jonah. It’s not President Obama - it’s Politician Obama.
Right! The political profession thrives on special dispensation such as amnesty, corporate bailouts, health care deals, union favoritism, wealth redistribution, tax breaks, and regulations. Equality and politics do not coexist. The same people who complain most about inequality are the ones making a comfortable living by promoting it. It's not a Democrat vs Republican issue.

We Have a Moral Divide, Not a Racial One

Martin Luther King would say we have a “character” divide. Isn’t that the same thing as morality?

Amnesty is another example of special dispensation by government. It’s blatant inequality and it’s common with central governance - dictators, monarchs, presidents, politicians, and bureaucrats.

If the Fed mints silver dollars, why can’t I go to a bank and exchange a paper dollar for a silver dollar? . . . Yeah, I know. It’s a rhetorical question. But why then can’t I “buy” a silver dollar from the bank for 20 paper dollars. Why must I go to a coin dealer? . . . Or would such bank transactions make the whole Federal paper money scheme too embarrassingly obvious and transparent?
Is Obamacare affordable? It’s like any “free lunch” . . . it depends on who’s picking up the check. In Obama’s world, it’s about votes, not healthcare or economy.
