Sunshine, Lollipops & Poetic Social Justice

Sunshine, Lollipops & Poetic Social Justice
Kevin Bryant

Brothers and Sisters, today is it my honor and my privilege to welcome Brother Barack to the pulpit. May glory and graciousness be bestowed upon our Brother.

(Obama emerges on stage singing)

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah! Zip-a-dee-ay!
My, oh my, what a wonderful day!
Plenty of sunshine heading my way.
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah! Zip-a-dee-ay!

With Nancy and Harry on my shoulder.
It's the truth, its actual.
And my healthcare bill is satisfactual.

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah! Zip-a-dee-ay!
Wonderful feeling. Wonderful day.

Come on everybody its a doo dah day!
Come on everybody have fun this day!

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah! Zip-a-dee-ay!
My, oh my, it's an Obama kinda day!
Theres plenty of good times heading my way.
Zip Zip-a-dee-doo-dah! Zip-a-dee-ay!

They said it couldn’t be done, but I said “Yes We Can”.
They said Oh No, not here in America, but I did it.
They said the American people won’t stand for it, but I got it done.

Total transformation. We are on our way and no one can stop us now.

They said, Barack, social justice will never happen in America. We have tried it and we have failed every time. But you know me; I like it when the odds are against me. Sunny days are finally here to stay.

Yes, healthcare took longer than I thought to happen, but we have taken one giant step towards a single payer system, and nothing is going to stop us from reaching our goal of having everyone in America getting their health care provided at no cost to them by the government.

80 percent, 80 percent control of the U.S. economy. That is my goal. Only when we get there will I be satisfied. Only when we get there can we have real reform in this country. Only at 80 percent will we finally be able to bring forth true social justice for the people. Today we stand at 52 percent. Nancy has already done her job with Cap & Trade. Now all we need is Harry and my GOP inside man, Lindsey Graham to bring home the bacon on Cap & Trade and we can add 10 percent to that total.

Now those teabaggers, those teabaggers are shouting “What about the constitution”. I say “What about it”? It has long since served its purpose and it is time for it to be put to pasture. It had its time. Now is Obama time. It’s our time to take what rightfully should have been ours long before I ever came into office…………………

(Obama fades out and real time sets in)

With the exception of Obama actually singing, this is more real than what any of us want to believe.

Obama wants everyone to believe that the more the government can control our lives, the more sunshine and lollipop days we will have in this country. We will want for nothing because government will provide it. Social Justice will prevail when the majority of the wealthy in this country lose their wealth and it is distributed as government sees fit.

No one including me wants to make the claim that Obama was elected president because he got 96 percent of the black vote in America. Though that is the largest percentage in history of any voting block to go for a single candidate, it was not what elected him to office. It was those in college and the under thirty crowd who believed in him and the progressive agenda he represents that put him over the top. He promised them a world without worry. He promised a world where everyone is equal. He promised them the impossible. Now you and I know that there is no such thing as social equality. There are always the haves and the have nots. There are those who chose to work hard and those who choice to be a victim of some fictional injustice. There are those who have spirit, drive and ambition and we have those who chose to do little or nothing to better themselves.

Too many of the young people in this country want everything handed to them. They want the government to provide them a free college education because they believe it is their right. They want government to provide them with a job because they are entitled to one. They want to be given a nice home and a nice car because others have them, but forget the fact that those that do have them had to work and obtained these things over time, not all at once and not without great cost. Soon, many will be graduating from college with their B.A. degrees and will be demanding that an employer give them a six figure salary job because they believe they are entitled to one.

The young of this country who supported and voted for Obama, many are not even working. They are living day to day on welfare. Those that do have jobs, many are part time jobs in small businesses or minimum wage jobs. Starting with July 2009 (in my opinion) the state of the economy no longer belonged to George Bush or the GOP, Obama took ownership of it. Since July of last year, many of those who supported and believed in Obama have lost their jobs because their employers had to close up shop, but that didn’t stop them from still believing. Now with the passage of the democrat healthcare bill, many more small businesses will be forced to close up shop because they will not be able to afford healthcare for all their full and part time employers. Larger businesses will be less likely to hire those entering the workforce because the economy has stalled again yet the tax burdens of these companies has increased, thus offsetting any gains they have made over the past year.

America’s young adults, you got the president you wanted. You got the healthcare bill you demanded to have but you do not know what price you had to pay to get it, but you will soon learn. It’s poetic social justice that the same young Americans who supported Obama are the first ones losing their jobs because of Obama’s policies and his handling of the economy. Never a more true example of the old saying, “you reap what you sew”.
