One sixteenth. That is all. He is indisputably 50% white.
Very strange. He's never disputed his Kenyan father, which makes him
pretty close to 50% black, depending on how "pure" is father was and how
much "black blood" his mother had.
One of many sad things about anti-black racism: In the 18th century, one
sixteenth "black blood" was enough to get one classified as black and in
the 21st century it still is.
Tiger Woods is another example. He's 50% Thai; his face is very
typically Thai. Yet because his father was a mixture of "races" that
includes blacks, he's considered by almost everybody to be black.
Nobody in this country got rich on his own. You built a factory--good.
But you moved your goods on roads we all paid for. You hired workers we
all paid to educate. So keep a big hunk of the money from your factory.
But take a hunk and pay it forward. Elizabeth Warren (paraphrased)
So you, Warren and Obama believe that if not, for example, a Henry
Ford that those workers would have come together on their own and came
up with the concept of the assembly line without needing an
independent thinker like Ford.
And Microsoft, Apple etc would have come into existence and became the
giants that they are even without a Bill Gates or a Steve Jobs because
all are equal in your tiny little mind.
Liberalism: "Since we aren't able to create something great by
ourselves then no one else can possibly be capable of doing it either.
If they were then we would feel inadequate and unable to compete so we
refuse to acknowledge any individual accomplishment."
Such statements as those made by Obama and Warren imply a high level
of jealousy and resentment towards anyone that has the fortitude and
ability to build anything and profit from any original and innovative
idea. The implication that those that are successful are just taking
advantage of what everyone else has done is flawed out of the gate
since those individuals pay the same taxes and have no greater access
to roads and infrastructure than anyone else. You imply that they
built whatever they have on the backs of everyone else which is an
extrapolation taken to the extreme.
Just one small step further and you have the equation that "if it
weren't for other people willing to buy what you make then you'd have
nothing so you've accomplished nothing".
That is insane thinking to say the least and is obviously the product
of a mind that is just envious and jealous of anyone that accomplishes
anything. Such statements are made for the sole purpose of just
denegrating and bringing everyone down to the same level of non
It should also be noted that the only people that the left points it's
frail little fingers at with such statements are those who actually
produce a product or service that benefits the general buying public.
Never do we see the left make such ludicrous accusations toward
entertainers or liberal icon billionaires such as George Soros or
their own liberal politicians who have made their entire living off of
the backs of the taxpayers.
And just what is the real point of wagging your little fingers at
those who create and produce? How does caliming that they "didn;t
build that" productive in any form? What is it that you expect from
them after making your little pompous accusation? What is it that you
believe they owe you or anyone else?
They paid their taxes just like anyone else and they pay for the
postage to ship their products. Hell, when it comes to moving their
goods, most of them pay many times more the road use taxes than you do
as an individual. A man who purchases his own 18 wheeler and is an
independant operator pays over $30,000 a year in highway usage fees.
How much do YOU pay in fuel taxes and fees for your tags?
Thus and so, to make the smartassed comment that "you didn;t build
that" is nothing more than an exercise to just degrade and insult
anyone who took the initiative to do something themselves instead of
working themselves silly making someone else wealthy.
As stated, it is nothing more than envy and jealousy on display.
BTW, according to your dear leader and his wife both, they didn't
dep[end on anyone to get where they are today. Indeed, according to
Michelle Obama in particular, they achieved the whitehouse all by
their little lonesome and had to fight and claw against virtually
everyone in order to achive the presidency.
Yet to everyone else in the world they will point their little fingers
and say "you didn't build that".
How truly pathetic.
No wonder leftists for the most part want to just sit on their lazy
non producing asses and suck off the labors of everyone else.
