“Now Is Not The Time For Profits”

Who said it…Barack Obama or Vladimir Lenin?

Jim Cramer of MSNBC noticed a disturbing similarity of language between the two when he heard Obama express his outrage at the “shameful” Wall Street bonuses, recently:

Obama dogged Wall Street by saying there would be a time “for them to make profits, and there will be time for them to get bonuses. Now’s not that time. And that’s a message that I intend to send directly to them.”

Cramer made this comparison: “There was a little snippet last week that was, ‘Now is not the time for profits.’ Look – in Lenin’s book, “What Is to Be Done,” is simple text of what I always though was for the communists. It was remarkable to hear very similar language from ‘What Is to Be Done?’ which is we have no place for profits.”

  1. The President showed his ignorance at the Prayer Bkfast today in Washington. His beliefs are instructing his views and if you believe in the inherent ‘goodness’ of men, then you’ll think socialism is a good idea. If you believe in original sin, or total depravity (Protestantism), or even Kant, who in 1793 spoke of man’s “propensity to evil…is universal…(and) woven in to human nature.”, then you’d appreciate limited government.
