Our Collectivist-in-Chief ...

President B. Hussein Obama said he didn't want to "run" U.S. car companies or U.S. banks. And then the gov'ment went and became big shareholders in U.S. car companies and U.S. banks.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, B. Hussein Obama ran an ad - a very effective ad, I'll admit - in which he said there were two "extremes" when it came to health care reform (status quo vs. gov't-provided health care, remember?). He promised to reform the current system whilst preserving the current private insurance market. He then went and proposed a "public option" reform which'd more or less allow each and every American to sign up for Medicare, thus destroying private health insurance in the U.S.

It's no secret that Obama's a liar (see above). I took a great deal of heat last year for calling Obama a "socialist." He never called for public ownership of "producers," I'll give you that. So maybe he ain't a socialist. I think it's safe to say, however -- and I will never apologize for saying this -- that he is a collectivist, mainly 'cause his administration is proposing shit like this:

U.S. government officials are weighing a plan that would let borrowers who have fallen behind on their mortgage payments avoid eviction by renting their homes instead, sources familiar with the administration's thinking said on Tuesday.

Under one idea being discussed, delinquent homeowners would surrender ownership of their homes but would continue to live in the property for several years, the sources told Reuters.

Officials are also considering whether the government should make mortgage payments on behalf of borrowers who cannot keep up with their home loans, tapping an unused portion of a $50 billion housing aid kitty.

As part of this plan, jobless borrowers might receive a housing stipend along with regular unemployment benefits, the sources said.

Auto-exec-in-chief, doctor-in-chief, and, now, landlord-in-chief! Please, someone dispute my notion that B. Hussein is a certified collectivist. Those who want to do it probably need to bone-up on their Von Mises and Haykek ... but I eagerly await replies from those who don't wanna, indeed.
