The use of the word ‘stealth’ here is highly subjective, seeing as the ‘stealthiness’ of this manoeuvering is inversely proportional to how aware you are of your surroundings.
For example, let’s say you were legally blind and deaf, and an entire moving team walked into your livingroom and erected tents and hammocks to house various foreign nationals. Let’s also say that they then popped open bottles of champagne and threw a raucous party late into the night, totally trashing your house.
In that instance, it might be ‘stealth’ to you, because you cannot see or hear. To anyone else though, it would not be stealth, it would actually be pretty blatant, and repugnantly outrageous. So let’s keep that in mind as we proceed to this article – which in my opinion is very well-written, and serves to briskly highlight Barack Obama’s agenda for the USA, and potentially the World.
Of course, Obama is too smart to try to smuggle such hoary collectivist garbage through the front door. He’s disguising the wealth transfers as “investments” — “to make America more competitive,” he says, or “that give us a fighting chance,” whatever that means.
Among his proposed “investments”:
• “Universal,” “guaranteed” health care.
• “Free” college tuition.
• “Universal national service” (a la Havana).
• “Universal 401(k)s” (in which the government would match contributions made by “low- and moderate-income families”).
• “Free” job training (even for criminals).
• “Wage insurance” (to supplement dislocated union workers’ old income levels).
• “Free” child care and “universal” preschool.
• More subsidized public housing.
• A fatter earned income tax credit for “working poor.”
• And even a Global Poverty Act that amounts to a Marshall Plan for the Third World, first and foremost Africa.
His new New Deal also guarantees a “living wage,” with a $10 minimum wage indexed to inflation; and “fair trade” and “fair labor practices,” with breaks for “patriot employers” who cow-tow to unions, and sticks for “nonpatriot” companies that don’t.
That’s just for starters — first-term stuff.
