Bloviating Zeppelin: FURTHER "Redistribution of Wealth" in the Obama Administration:

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

FURTHER "Redistribution of Wealth" in the Obama Administration:

Move over, Dr Berwick -- here comes John P. Holdren, Mr Obama's "Science Czar," who called for more "wealth redistribution" a full five months prior to his appointment:

( – John P. Holdren, who then-President-elect Barack Obama nominated as director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy in December 2008, called just five months before his nomination for a global climate-change agreement that would allow wealth to be redistributed from countries in the global "North" to countries in the "South."

On the July 3, 2008 edition of the program “Democracy NOW!” Holdren told host Amy Goodman: “It’s important that we have a global agreement on how we are going to limit the emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases going forward, and an agreement that will include the tropical forests, that will include ways to transfer some of the revenues from carbon taxes or carbon emission permits in the North to pay for reduced deforestation in the South.”

Holdren, who is sometimes called President Obama’s “science czar,” is the administration's top science official.

Here's a lovely little gem of an idea from Mr Holdren in the 70s:

In a 1977 college textbook he co-wrote, “Ecoscience,” for example, Holdren said the United States must set an example for the world by undergoing “dedevelopment,” and that wealth must be redistributed “with and among nations.”

“The need for de-development presents our economists with a major challenge,” he and his co-authors Paul and Anne Ehrlich wrote. “They must design a stable, low-consumption economy in which there is a much more equitable distribution of wealth than in the present one.” “Redistribution of wealth both within and among nations is absolutely essential, if a decent life is to be provided to every human being,” said Holdren and his co-authors.

At least Mr Berwick and Mr Holdren are sufficiently honest to state their predilections up front.

Mr Obama is, of course, not.

TF: perhaps they could sit down for some beers and Mr Obama could take his Teleprompter.

Firecap5: thanks. So sad.
