According to our most beloved President Peace Prize, not everyone gets to live large like he and his family do. Oh no. He must smack your little hand for reaching for a piece of the pie.
"The planet will boil over" if everyone in Africa is allowed to live in anything even closely approximating middle class comfort. So shut your yaps and take one for the team...
Of course, that's just the scary future without President Peace Prize to rescue them. He warns that they will all stay in poverty if he doesn't spend 7 BILLION dollars in Africa to develop alternative energy sources. You know, like Solyndra. That was a huge success. Remember?
Seven billion dollars directed right to the pockets of his friends. And if all their efforts produce squat, well...they TRIED! You can't ask for more than that. Sorry about that continued desperate poverty, but these $100 million dollar trips to visit you all and give you pep talks about being "collective" team players aren't going to pay for themselves.
Someone's got to make sacrifices.
