Obama’s Proposed Hope and Change for the Eighth Commandment

Obama recently said that “the majority” of Americans, who pay little or no federal income tax, “agree with me” that those who DO pay significant income taxes should pay even more, so that the parasite class (a.k.a. “the majority who agree with me”) can become even more parasitic. Producers should be taxed even more heavily than they are now so that non-producers can be even more unproductive, and for longer periods of time. He in essence would like to see the Eighth Commandment changed in the following way:

Original Eighth Commandment: “Thou shalt not steal.” (Exodus 20:15)

Obama’s Preferred Change: “Thou shalt not steal. However, stealing is OK if it is called “democracy,” “majority rule,” or “social justice.”

UPDATE:  The same goes, of course, for the Tenth Commandment:  “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors house . . . nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”   The glorification and celebration of theft  and covetesness, along with the deadly sin of envy, are the cornerstones of the modern state.  We never hear a peep about this, however, from all those black preachers who instructed their flocks to vote for Obama, or all those white ministers who instructed their flocks to vote for Romney, Bush, and the rest.  And we especially never hear of this from all those “social justice” Catholics whose clergy are mostly socialist/Marxist ideologues hiding behind priest’s collars.
