Dooh Nibor is a term for a reversed Robin Hood where a politician robs from the poor and gives to the rich. Note that I have not done any real investigating, just noticed some things before the SCOTUS ruling on ObamaCare. Intrade is usually right, but they missed this one. Maybe we’ll find that Roberts placed a bet there himself or wanted to teach them betting on his court is a loosing gamble? The stock market dropped before the decision with the usual talking heads saying it was similar to some bla-bla record/event. And then it began making gains! Saw a headline on the Daily Caller but didn’t read, that significant purchases of some health stocks indicated there was insider trading from early release of the Supreme Courts decision. And then there’s that line from “All the President’s Men”, “follow the money”.
Fact, Obama met behind closed doors to gain support from the pharmaceutical companies.
Fact, Obama had multiple meeting with union leaders who were among the first to receive exemptions (including for “Cadillac plans”)
Fact, Obama promised no tax increases for anybody making less than $250K, but ObamaCare/ObamaTax does impose taxes directly on everyone who files a tax return and does not have insurance. Depending on their income, the insurance could be “free”, or low to middle-income must have insurance or pay a tax that increases dramatically over several years.
Fact, 1% vs 99%, there are a lot more taxpayers in the 99%, meaning the majority of the tax burden will fall on the poor, not the rich.
I do like folklore, and the legend of Robin Hood is one of the greatest (idle thought, how many times have their re-made Robin Hood or the Three Musketeers movie anyway??last Musketeer blew IMHO) The first legend of RH had him as a simple farmer, then a minor nobleman, both wronged by the evil sheriff while the king was off fighting in the Crusades. (Richard wasn’t the first king named, nor Sherwood Forrest the first crime scene) And how does that story play out if applied to our situation? King Obama is not absent, except for non-stop campaigning. Sheriff John/Eric Holder is happily enforcing any and every royal ObamaHood decree. ObamaHood has stolen from the rich, given to the poor,( food stamps usage increased 100% since he took office(but don’t call him a food stamp president)). You also shouldn’t ask about GE not paying taxes on huge profits while they outsourced jobs to China. Don’t ask about a couple billion given to his friends in green energy (OK only 80% of that went to people with ties to him) Don’t ask him why the poverty rate has increased, why the cost of goods sold increases faster than he can increase entitlements(funny it seems real close to how fast he’s increased the money supply).

And what about our “Maid Marion”? Ever loyal and committed to our hero’s cause? Seems she needs to escape that horrible rustic forest that is a very old, white house quite often. Might be we didn’t need any stimulus, just give her a credit card and the keys to Air Force One and watch liberal economics in action…. Robin Hood took from the rich and gave to the poor. He took from the poor only what they offered, usually their silence and loyalty. ObamaHood takes from (some of) the rich, usually with camera’s rolling while he explains why this is just, then gives (some of) it to the poor (and a lot of it to his wealthy friends).
You hear this line often, “it’s good to be the king”, and think how that applies today. How great is it to be given control of the people’s money to use as you see fit? To be “entrusted” with spending it well. So far, over two billion of Obama’s green energy loans and projects have failed, most are in bankruptcy. But the good side, most of the corporate officers were paid very well for a short time. Many campaign contributions were made, with over 70% having ties to Obama. And on the campaign trail, he’s still pitching the same bull about investing in green energy as the only path forward.
Most of us wonder about the person whose love cheats on them and is caught. But they love them, forgive when the promise is made, never again. And we all have seen this in high school and all thru life. Police are frustrated beyond belief at going to the same address for a report of domestic violence. Time and again, the victim changes their mind and refuses to press charges. Is this the same mentality we are seeing in Obama supporters? You may still share in his vision of what America should be, but what about the lies? Everyone’s health costs have and will continue going up. The one thing he has done is guarantee the hospitals and insurance companies profits. They threw in with King Robin and will receive their thirty pieces of silver.
And the poor? They will be given much, the new farm bill being considered in the senate has 80% of its budget going to the food stamp program. (some evil Republicans tried to force the food stamps into a separate bill for the other items) But as much as the poor are given, their expenses will outpace the government entitlements and the poverty rate will continue to rise. He will steal from the rich, those he doesn’t like, like coal companies. But he has protected his rich allies. With all his trash talk against Wall Street, they seem to have done pretty well under his rein. The poor, not so well. Come on King Robin, you promised the peasants times of plenty. You have shattered all spending records. Where was their cut?
