President Obama was born  when Jack Burns was campaigning for a 2nd try for the Hawai’i governorship.     Burns is regarded as the hero of the common folk in Hawai’i   — our Great White Father  — so to speak.

*

Burns was born into a broken home amid austere conditions.    Burns never lost his affinity for the down and out in society  — the throw-aways/reh-fuse.

*

Burns transformed Oligarchy-chokehold Hawai’i into today’s inclusive society.

*

Had Burns lived to see Barack Obama become U.S. President, no more joyful person would there be than our own Jack Burns.    Burns’ lifelong mission was to see an egalitarian America, and Burns being Aquinas’ acolyte via Summa Theologica,   Burns used schooling a la Aquinas’ dicta as the fulcrum to level the playing field especially for people of color.

*

Burns would grade an “F” for President Obama’s coddling of Wall St. , especially because Burns lived thru the Great Depression brought on by reprobate capitalists.

*

Burns would grade an “A+” for President Obama’s national health care policy and a “B+” for affordable subsidized higher education loans/grants.

*

Burns would grade a “C” for President Obama’s caving in to the Pentagon brass on “endless war” insanity.

*

Unquestionably, Burns would chasten President Obama to heed President Obama’s tutu/grandma Toots on thumbing down Wall St.’s graft/corruption culture.   Burns would support reformers like Simon Johnson/James Kwak/Sheila Bair/Elizabeth Warren/etc.     https://curtisnarimatsu.wordpress.com/2013/05/07/contrarian-david-stockman-theres-a-gallery-of-economic-villains-franklin-roosevelt-richard-nixon-milton-friedman-arthur-burns-art-laffer-lawrence-summers-george-w-bush-john-mack-h/

Burns key person to break up our Hawai’i Oligarch Big 5 was Bert Kobayashi.      http://the.honoluluadvertiser.com/article/2005/Oct/10/ln/FP510100333.html

  1. Pingback: President Obama’s “F” report card outcome on President Obama’s capitulation to Wall St. — Sure, there are some new rules around the margins, but for the most part little has changed—not just in the financial sector itself,

  2. Pingback: Even after the fall of Wall St. 5 years ago, I remember so many instances where Wall Street blocked or delayed sensible regulatory policies, or regulators pushed for Wall Street’s interests—the watering down of mark-to-market accounting, the artificia
