Translation of Obama’s SOTU ‘Five’ Pillars

Posted by iusbvision on January 26, 2011

As a follow up to our live blogging to President Obama’s State of the Union address a translation of the five pillars seems in order.

“Making sure we are competitive and creating jobs” sounds great, but we have heard that before. We have also heard it after every bill that turns out to be a power grab that fails the economy he says “OK now we will focus on jobs.” So far he is doing a great job of shutting down energy production and sending “green jobs” funds to China.


Forbid drilling, closing more coal mines, forbid nuclear plant licencing, no new natural gas, more solar panel factories chased out of the country,  more low cost loans to foreign countries so THEY can drill more, more Mexican, Cuban and Chinese oil wells just off our shores, more EPA caps on our refineries.  More expensive energy.

The solution? The joke that is now called the Chevy Volt.  Poisonous and expensive twisty light bulbs, expensive solar and wind power that can’t do the industrial heavy lifting we need.


More government programs and bureaucrats, more tax dollars thrown at teachers unions. More sabotaging of voucher programs. More outrageous reporting requirements. More failed schools. More students left behind.


More online databases of your information such as medical records. Privacy (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)?


Make work programs for unions in cities, like the high speed raid Obama mentioned.  Corruption: Stimulus Funds Spent in Democrat Districts…

Deficit Reduction:

Keep repeating the lie that ObamaCare lowers the deficit.  Raise taxes.

Government Reform:

Rule by executive order. Bypass Congress and put the czar’s to work. Abuse the regulatory and permit process for social engineering.

UPDATE – someone finally noticed, the speech seemed to have six pillars, as opposed to the five that was told to the press in the White House previews of the speech. Of course a commenter below didn’t catch on to this and blamed us for the mistake.

    EXCELLENT SUMMARY OF THE SOTU! And are we all aware that BO AGAIN has sited the Qur’an? Five Pillars? The Five Pillars of Islam! When have you EVER heard a PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES quote the Qur’an so often, and use it as an example for AMERICANS!!!! He is nudging continually, whether 1/2 this country believes it or not — that’s the half that keeps giving him a “bump” in the polls because he reads so well from the TelePrompTer a speech written by a speechwriter!

    Ummmmm, don’t upset the bunny, but I think that is actually six “pillars.” Did you skip the day in elementary school where they taught you to count?

    [LOL take a look at our update. – Editor]
