Obama- "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me"
Fact- I am utterly dependent on my miserable, paltry $900 per month Social Security Disability check. And the only reason it is that much is the State of Oregon is paying the $100 or so Medicare insurance premium. Up until a few months ago, I was paying that too.
Fact- I am severely disabled, already been dead once. I sit here on my hospital bed hooked to my oxygen equipment, otherwise I can just die now.
Fact- Much as I have tried, I cannot get my wife to build a stock up of basic staples. We have a very small pantry (about 4' x 8'), and I doubt there's a month worth of staples in there.
Fact- Even though I grew a huge garden most of my life, know all about having an underground cellar and keeping it stocked well with my own produce, I have neither. Where we live, it's for my health and gardens don't do well here.
Even though I have been a super producer and provider my entire life and spent my life being proudly self-sufficient, I have been cheated out of every dime I ever made and am in no position to be self-sufficient in any way now.
I am surrounded by people who have never had to produce anything or be responsible in any way- who think I am "silly" for being concerned.
propaganda> Common Techniques> Special Appeals> Fear
"The streets of our country are in turmoil. The universities are filled with students rebelling and rioting. Communists are seeking to destroy our country. Russia is threatening us with her might, and the Republic is in danger. Yes - danger from within and without. We need law and order! Without it our nation cannot survive." - Adolf Hitler, 1932
When a propagandist warns members of her audience that disaster will result if they do not follow a particular course of action, she is using the fear appeal. By playing on the audience's deep-seated fears, practitioners of this technique hope to redirect attention away from the merits of a particular proposal and toward steps that can be taken to reduce the fear.

Obama: Social Security checks 'not guaranteed'
By Charles Riley @CNNMoney July 12, 2011: 3:17 PM E
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- President Obama issued a broadside Tuesday in the debt ceiling debate, saying in a high-profile interview that he cannot ensure government benefits -- including Social Security -- will be paid if Congress fails to act.
"I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven't resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it," Obama told CBS News.
I am no "spring chicken". I have been around a long time. I am 60 years old, heading for 61. I have seen a GOB of really stupid shit happen with government since the early 1960's. Whatever new thing the government wanted to try, I was right there writing letters to the Editor of the local newspaper, explaining what was wrong with the plan and what was going to happen next. Even back then, there were "progressives" (we called them "New Agers" back in those days) who also wrote letters to the editor explaining how foolish, old fashioned and obsolete my concerns were,
A LOT of this "New Age" stuff went into effect in 1974. If you look back at all the really bad, BAD stuff that we are battling with now, examination will fairly consistently show it started in 1974. Previous watershed periods of "progress" would be during the reign of Woodrow Wilson beginning in 1912 and not the least of the damage he did was the Federal Reserve System, which soon lead to (or certainly did not prevent) The Great Depression. During the reign of Franklin Delano Roosevelt beginning in 1933 the "liberal" New Deal emerged.
So here we are today, 2011 with the "Fundamentally Transforming the United States of America" well underway, we are trying to catch our breath, wondering what the "new normal" now is, and this communist sonofabitch and his sycophants are pounding for more, more, MORE. If the Dimocrats don't get their way on increasing taxes, they aren't going to negotiate on cutting ANY of the pork, fat, and utter corruption. And Obama is promising it is going to HURT.
One thing I do know from seeing this sort of thing before is, they make darned sure The Most Vulnerable HURT FIRST and HURT THE WORST. And if a few of us die, that's Collateral Damage for not getting their way.
That's the sort of thing that could make us "little folks" CLAMOR for Obama to GET HIS WAY.
Make us "boss" so to speak.
"...the first step in the revolution by the working class is to raise the proletariat to the position of ruling class to win the battle of democracy."- The Communist Manifesto
So if Obama and the socialist Democrats* don't get their way, how bad IS it going to hurt until they DO get their way?

"Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They always run out of other people's money. It's quite a characteristic of them. They then start to nationalise everything, and people just do not like more and more nationalisation, and they're now trying to control everything by other means." -Margaret Thatcher February 5, 1976
*"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of "liberalism," they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened." He went on to say: "I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform." - Norman Thomas, perennial Presidential candidate of the U.S. Socialist Party (1944)
