Shovel Ready

I know everyone says to avoid Hitler comparisons, but….

whenever I hear the Obama Administration and their supporters talk about shovel ready projects, my thoughts go immediately to the German Autobahn.  Hitler’s shovel bearing troops marching to their new government stimulus jobs make me cringe.

    Hitler isn’t a good comparison, as he was a violent dictator. Obama is trying to turn our country into a Socialistic society while most Americans and happily ignorant sitting in front of their TV’s.

      Mao Zedong, Joseph Stalin and Fidel Castro, as well as Adolf Hitler were all socialist/communists who were initially heralded by their people as great reformers. The history of the last century also proved them to also be inhumane to say the least.

      Initially, Hitler offered hope, change, a socialist agenda and a unifying common enemy in the Jews. President Obama offered hope, change, a socialist agenda and a unifying common enemy in the conservatives of our nation.

      So, yes it may not be fair to compare Adolf Hitler to Barrack Obama from the standpoint of violence, but we’d be less than prudent to dismiss all comparisons.

  2. I think it is disrespectful to compare President Obama to Hitler. But you’re the guy who get’s to live with the criticism and disrespect.

    Franklin D. Roosevelt, at a 1932 speech given in Boston stated: “We have two problems: first, to meet the immediate distress; second, to build up on a basis of permanent employment.”

    “As to immediate relief, the first principle is that this nation, this national government, if you like, owes a positive duty that no citizen shall be permitted to starve.

    In addition to providing emergency relief, the Federal Government should and must provide temporary work wherever that is possible. You and I know that in the national forests, on flood prevention, and on the development of waterway projects that have already been authorized and planned but not yet executed, tens of thousands, and even hundreds of thousands of our unemployed citizens can be given at least temporary employment.”

      I haven’t compared Adolf Hitler to President Obama yet, but I think overall any US President would fair very well in any such comparison, even President Obama.

      However, I might ding him a few points for some of his administration’s programs, rhetoric and goals that remind me of Nazi Germany.

      I see Red Flags, not disrespect.

      We demand therefore:

      The abolition of incomes unearned by work.

      In view of the enormous sacrifices of life and property demanded of a nation by any war, personal enrichment from war must be regarded as a crime against the nation. We demand therefore the ruthless confiscation of all war profits.

      We demand the nationalization of all businesses which have been formed into corporations (trusts).

      We demand profit-sharing in large industrial enterprises.

      We demand the extensive development of insurance for old age.

      We demand the creation and maintenance of a healthy middle class, the immediate communalizing of big department stores, and their lease at a cheap rate to small traders, and that the utmost consideration shall be shown to all small traders in the placing of State and municiple orders.

      We demand a land reform suitable to our national requirements, the passing of a law for the expropriation of land for communal purposes without compensation; the abolition of ground rent, and the prohibition of all speculation in land.

    Wouldn’t it just be quicker to list the things about the Obama administration that DON’T make you think of Hitler?
