Every time President Obama goes off teleprompter/ad libs he lets us know his true intentions. Like that time during the campaign when he found himself on “Joe the Plumber’s” driveway talking about re-distribution of income. Yesterday during his mid-west sell the financial reform tour President Obama said he was “very pleased” a deal had been reached, and he criticized Wall Street lobbyists for trying to dilute the bill’s most stringent provisions. Obama said he did not “begrudge” wealth that is “fairly earned.” But then he ad-libbed, “I think at some point you have made enough money.”
The Rabbis teach us that there is a reason why some people get wealth and others don’t. They say that wealth is a way that God rewards people, not because they can buy lots of cool stuff, but because they can give more charity. They teach that you are not judged by how much or little money you have but, what you do with it. By those standards, multi-billionaire Bill Gates does not make too much money, but our SCHMOTUS Joe Biden who makes so much less than the Microsoft head, does.
“The utopian schemes of leveling [redistribution of wealth], and a community of goods, are as visionary and impracticable as those which vest all property in the Crown. [These ideas] are arbitrary, despotic, and, in our government, unconstitutional.”Samuel Adams
