America Drowns, But Obama Throws the Mideast Our Life Preserver

It's the kind of stupid you can only afford with other people's money.

Having high ideals and unselfish goals is something for which all good people strive. But when one’s high-minded desires overwhelm the basics of self-preservation, then all that high-flying, “do-unto-others” rhetoric actually becomes more destructive than the most selfish person could ever be. Folks just minding their own business and taking care of their own needs, at the very least, do no harm to others. Do-gooders, on the other hand, always minding other people’s business while ignoring their own, often do quite a lot of harm – even to those they insist they are really trying to help.

Which brings us back to President Obama and his innate arrogance. Only a truly arrogant fool, using other people’s money, could possibly ask the struggling American taxpayer to dole out more money to save the world — at a point when we cannot even save ourselves from economic crash-and-burn reality.

What’s even worse about this fool’s-errand speech is that the money he’s promising on our behalf is for the Islamic regimes which daily threaten to destroy our way of life and grow stronger as we grow weaker. Any American with a mere grain of common sense will see this presidential folly as not merely stupid but also traitorous.

Just imagine for a moment, dear readers, if the World War II generation had attempted to use the Obama strategy to defeat Nazism. Instead of bombing the SOBs into ignominious defeat and occupation, we could have given them billions to make nice with us. Right. Great strategy. The Nazis would have used the money to build more “ovens” and get to atom bomb superiority, all the while laughing and sending their best and brightest suck-up artists to the diplomacy tables.

This is, by the way, precisely what the North Koreans do with every nickel we send to them for food, supposedly to give to their people. We send money to crooked, evil regimes every day around the globe, which is turned into weapons that will one day be used against us. But I digress into common-sense thinking — way too much for D.C. do-gooders and bureaucrats to understand.

This “strategy” is simple: give your enemies the rope with which to hang you.

Now, it is highly unlikely that Obama will be able to wrangle another dime out of a Congress made more sober with each day’s increasing deficit hanging over their heads. But that won’t stop the teenager in chief from promising another huge increase in Dad’s American Express limit to all the beggars of the world.

The next time anyone wonders why Ron Paul’s “cut off every penny of foreign aid” message resonates with so many Americans, here is the clue.

Only ninnies of the lowest order try to save the whole world when they cannot even save themselves.
