Michelle Obama has been making the rounds of college commencements. Two weeks ago she spoke to graduates and told them about her own woes of growing up on the wrong side of town. and in poverty. And why Blacks never get a fair chance.
Fade to reality: I researched Michelle's lies years ago. Here's a few facts that you can google for yourself. Michelle grew up in a respectable, crime free neighborhood. The large family home was an Arts and Crafts red brick home highly sought by real estate investors.
Michelle's dad worked for the water department of the city of Chicago. He made $80,000 dollars a year as a meter reader before being promoted to a supervisor position at the water plant where he was paid $130,000 dollars per year. Michelle's life only got better. After marrying Barry, and he got elected to the Illinois State Senate, Michelle miraculously got hired as "eye candy" for a hospital that paid her $150,000 dollars a year.
The two were rolling pretty good, both of them earning six digit annual salaries. It must have been good because the Obama's hooked up with a convicted felon who set them up with an $850,000 dollar home. And it got even better. Once Barry started writing books about his own desperate quest for equality during his Ivy League school tenure, Barry and Michelle were raking in millions.
And, if you read this morning's paper, thanks to the generosity of those Chicago politicians, Illinois has $105 billion in government worker pension liabilities that they can't pay. Three years ago Illinois doubled the income tax rates on her citizens and it still wasn't enough. Now that a liberal court has ruled the Governor can't revise those pensions downward the only solution is to raise taxes again. (Illinois led among all 50 states in citizens fleeing the state.) While Michelle calls $130,000 dollars a year "poverty", the taxpayers of Illinois only wish they were that poor.
