Back in the days white Americas vitriol and hate was reserved for Blacks strictly because we were seen to be less than 100% man, as it was stated that we were 3/5th’s of a man. This racist mentality was the basis of laws like the Black Codes that made up Jim Crow America during the late 19th to the middle 20th century. Civil Rights initiatives beat down most of those laws and gave us better ground to stand on and since then we have been building upon a better foundation to reach our lofty goals.
But while we were building and fighting for every inch of ground that we got, a new animus was being nurtured by the “elitist” of our society. These people were the white people who were so blinded by their privilege that they lived in an impregnable bubble. This bubble would continue to grow and grow as more and more white Americans became wealthy enough to partake in the “finer things” in life and separate themselves from the other 99% percent of society in which we live in.
This 1% of society follows Ayn Rand and practices the Randian philosophy that she developed from Existentialism; a philosophy developed during the late 19th and early 20th century, that she called Objectivism! This philosophy emerged around the world after the Civil War, when Black men and women in America were finally afforded the same rights as white people.
Objectivism is, as stated here, “Objectivism’s central tenets are that reality exists independent of consciousness, that human beings have direct contact with reality through sense perception, that one can attain objective knowledge from perception through the process of concept formation and inductive logic, that the proper moral purpose of one’s life is the pursuit of one’s own happiness (or rational self-interest), that the only social system consistent with this morality is full respect for individual rights embodied in laissez-faire capitalism, and that the role of art in human life is to transform humans’ metaphysical ideas by selective reproduction of reality into a physical form”.

Over the past week this platinum grade asshole, (seen in the pic to your left) has been getting media attention because he, 1. Is trying to drum up attention for his wife’s new reality show, and 2. He wants the world to know how much of a douche bag he really is.
David Siegel, the owner of Westgate Resorts, a timeshare company worth $100’s of millions to billions of dollars, whose net worth is in the high $100’s of millions these days, is intimidating his employees with being fired if Obama is re-elected. He claims that he’s not trying to tell them that that they need to vote for Romney but when you read his letter, he’s saying you need to vote for Romney, or you might end up unemployed. Because like a spoiled kid, if he loses he’s taking his jobs away from y’all and might just close the company for good.
“You see, I can no longer support a system that penalizes the productive and gives to the unproductive. My motivation to work and to provide jobs will be destroyed, and with it, so will your opportunities. If that happens, you can find me in the Caribbean sitting on the beach, under a palm tree, retired, and with no employees to worry about.” Read the whole letter here!
So a “job creator” who builds a 90,000 sq ft home and has 7000 employees, which by the way is 5000 less than before the recession, is willing to close a profitable business, that has had some of its best economic years ever, under the Obama administration, if Obama wins again! Let’s be mindful that Obama walked into a disaster zone and was tasked with cleaning it up and making sure that the country got back on track.
