Those who lived in New York City during the disastrous reign of Mayor David Dinkins may remember Dinkinsville, as they called a fenced-in patch of Lower East Side rubble meant to house derelicts ejected from Thompkins Square Park. Dinkinsism — i.e., smash-and-grab socialism imposed by a bumbling Affirmative Action post turtle taken by liberal fools for a “magic negro” — has gone national in the form of Obamunism. Consequently, we now have Obamaville:


Actually, the reference goes further back than Dinkins – all the way to Herbert Hoover, who ushered in the Great Depression that was so artfully exploited and extended by progressive hero FDR:

In the 1930s, Hoovervilles (shantytowns) formed coast to coast in cities of the United States. Some families were fortunate enough to stay with friends and family members that hadn’t been evicted yet, but homeless men, women and children were forced to take up residence in shacks as a result of the Great Depression. Angry, cold and hungry Americans, who had no other place to reside, dubbed groups of those shacks in honor of President Herbert Hoover.

Those desperate folks blamed Hoover for the downfall of economic stability and lack of government help. The small amount of resources that the federal government actually made available often did not go to the sick, hungry and homeless. That was simply because many city officials were corrupt, and kept those valuable resources to themselves.

American Thinker comments:

It hardly seems a coincidence that the sign was strung up within sight of the ubiquitous American Recovery and Reinvestment Act sign touting the wasteful dispersement of U.S. tax dollars on pet projects and boondoggles lavished upon Democrat Friends of B.O. While the Obama administration focuses on saving or creating jobs like the 3 jobs rescued for Clinton pollster Mark Penn at the cost of $6 million, the unemployment rate remains above 10% for those who even bother to try to find work in the eviscerated American business landscape. … While the Obamas jet back and forth from Scandanavia garnering Nobel loot and posing greenly for the Gropenhagen climate conference, many Americans will spend Christmas living in tents or their automobliles.

The usual liberal strategy is for the government to hand everyone a cheap crutch after it has broken our legs by taxing and regulating the economy into the dumps, thus ensuring our eternal gratitude. But apparently our current rulers are too greedy even to buy a few crutches with the $trillions they’ve been looting not only from us, but from future generations.
