Did I hear Someone Say Something About Shared Prosperity or Something?

This is really unbelievable

How I became George Obama’s ‘brother’

A few days ago I received a call from a man I recently met named George.  He was a bit flustered, and soon informed me that his young son was sick with a chest condition.  He pleaded with me to send him $1,000 to cover the medical bills.  Since George was at the hospital I asked him to let me speak to a nurse, and she confirmed that George’s son was indeed ill.  So I agreed to send George the money through Western Union.  He was profusely grateful.  But before I hung up I asked George, “Why are you coming to me?”  He said, “I have no one else to ask.”  Then he said something that astounded me, “Dinesh, you are like a brother to me.”
Actually, George has a real life brother who just happens to be the president of the United States.  (George Obama is the youngest of eight children sired by Barack Obama Sr.)  George’s brother is a multimillionaire and the most powerful man in the world.  Moreover, George’s brother has framed his re-election campaign around the “fair share” theme that we owe obligations to those who are less fortunate.  
One of Obama’s favorite phrases comes right out of the Bible: “We are our brother’s keeper.”  Yet he has not contributed a penny to help his own brother. And evidently George does not believe, even in times of emergency, that he can turn to his brother in the White House for help.  
So much for spreading the wealth around.
Obama’s refusal to help George is especially surprising because George doesn’t just live in American-style poverty but rather in Third World poverty.  He lives in a shanty in the Huruma slum in Nairobi.  He gets by on a few dollars a month.  Obama also has an aunt named Hawa Auma, his father’s sister, who ekes out a living selling coal on the streets of a small village in Kenya.  She says she would like to have her teeth fixed, but she cannot afford it.  Obama hasn’t offered to help her either.

You can't expect Obama to take responsibility for his brother's shitty life. HE DIDN'T BUILD THAT.

This is absolutely surreal.
This is really something out of reality and just confirms my belief that the leaders of the Demonrat party are every bit as evil as Hitler or Stalin.
Put yourself in their shoes for a moment and meditate on it; if anyone can be so uncaring, unmerciful, and heartless as Obama, then I just can't relate to you.
This is filthy evil on a most personal level.

I was adopted. I know my birth family. I pretty much stay away from them, and avoid much social or emotional interaction, because frankly, I do not know them personally. I did not grow up with them. They are not part of the development of my consciousness, and I am very little a part of theirs.

Obama probably feels the same way about his "family". Even his "mother".

He did not have much of a family, if we go by the definition of family that people like you and I use, cjk.

That being said, Obama could help the guy out. For God's sake.

Ya gotta think he could swing it, if for no other reasons that benevolent self interest (an EXCELLENT REASON, BTW) or pure malevolent denial of negative PR to the repubs.

This is his blood younger half brother, not any parent or other person with whom he might have feelings of rejection.
If you investigate the situation, it seems like this is a result of differing politics.

You know, cjk, as an adopted person, I may not have what it requires to know why someone ought to care.

That is not to say that if I were Obama I wouldn't help out. I would. I just don't think it makes him Hitlerian if he doesn't.

That in itself doesn't make him Hitlerian, it's just another characteristic which confirms my thoughts to me at least.
