Got your taste of marxism? Bet you can't wait to spit it out!

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | What do American voters and wine tasters have in common? They both know not to swallow inferior product.

You know how to taste test wine? I sorta know, but just to be sure, I Googled it. So here goes my version of "Wine tasting for dummies."

  • Examine color and clarity (Transparency).

  • Pour into a wine glass.

  • Look for hidden distortions. (Unexpected taxes and power grabs).

  • After swishing the wine around the glass ten to twelve seconds (hopefully on the inside), one smells, then tastes the fermented fruit juice.

  • If it greets your taste buds as rancid and toxic like-say--Obamacare, Stimuli, bailouts, Cap and Trade, et al, then spit it out immediately, wash your mouth out with hydrogen peroxide, brush your pie hole out for an hour.

  • Tell the waiter you want a drinkable wine. (Repeal)

Learning Curve Kicks Marxism to the Curb Remember when you were a kid and your excuse for doing something stupid was, "Johnny did it." Bet you didn't get away with that. Your mom or dad asked, as mine did, "If Johnny jumped off a gazillion-foot-high cliff, would you ?" That made sense when we were ten.

Our president, who recently celebrated his 49th birthday, 18th month in office, 8th vacation this year and hundredth golf round, apparently didn't learn that lesson. Yet he graduated from HAHVAD .

On second thought, that might have been the reason he doesn't get it. His whole adult life, including HAHVAD has been a course in learning the failed political hoax of Socialism. Obama et al, supported Bush's dallying in entitlement spending while vehemently blasting him for lightly tapping of the socialists, AKA Democrats' wrists for their mind-boggling intention to push banks to suicide by forcing loans to people who wouldn't or couldn't pay it off.

As President Obama blames Bush for our economy for the 18,957th time since he was lied in on 1/20/09 one has to ask, "If Bush's spending was a disaster and created a deficit, why repeat it? " The question should be, why QUADRUPLE IT !?

The incredible need for this President to be on the tube more than Seinfeld repeats (at least the latter has some entertainment value) has brought the super quiet Bush's name up so often that a poll in Ohio has Dubya whipping Obama by eight points if a presidential race were held today.

It's not just about the immaturity of the "Bush did it too!" reflex. It's about the shared history of the failed Marxist experiment over the last century.

The only major accomplishment of this class/race warring administration is the country is about to have more people below the poverty line than when the government began that measure in 1959.

The question hidden by this insipid, juvenile blame game is the history of what Obama and his Socialist Hoards are vying for.


  • The Communist takeover of Russia resulted in 20 to 25 million Russian peasants starving to death plus another 20 million killed in Stalin's disastrous alliance with Hitler.

  • Adolf Hitler's massive Socialist restructuring of the German Reich, made partially responsible by the Woodrow Wilson's heavy handed Versailles Treaty at WW1's end brought us the second round of planet earth's conflict in 22 years, WW2. That war resulted in 65 million killed and the effective elimination of European Jewry.

  • Mao Tse-Tung's Communist takeover of China resulted in the murder/starvation of over 50 to 70 million of his countrymen. They are reverting to Capitalism.

  • FDR/Herbert Hoover's confiscatory taxes on the so/called wealthy while spending enormous amounts of our treasury while creating debt, plummeted the country into a 12-year depression where unemployment reached 25%, a tactic Obama is emulating. Most of that era's policies were removed. Presidential term limits were enacted by the 22nd Amendment so no other can dominate like the four terms of Roosevelt . Some programs, like our ponderous Ponzi prone Social Security System, endure.

  • Hugo Chavez's ploy to dominate all facets and opinions in Venezuela has the country on the precipice of collapse. In an oil-rich nation, rationing and price controls are now being injected into the populace.

  • Fidel Castro is an amazing case of someone who has lived the Communist dream and seen it dissipate his country. After 51 years in power and owning 90% of the country's businesses, he now says the Cuban model didn't work.

The irony of the situation is the American people are regurgitating the poison being shoved in their bodily orifices. While Obama continues to blame Bush and his current straw man John Boehner, Dems running for office are blaming Obama in their campaign ads !

Time to take this latest version of Socialism and PUT A CORK IN IT !
