Două discursuri, un singur om de stat


Uitam! băsescu şi-a programat cum nu se poate mai prost discursul! Pentru că pică pe "Discursul despre starea naţiunii", al Obamezului. Sigur, nu-l prea am eu la suflet pe Obamez, pentru că s-a predat, cu arme şi bagaje, Sistemului, pe care l-a favorizat, în detrimentul americanului de pe stradă. Dar, ce-i al lui, e al lui: are viziune, şi mai alea are simţul măsurii. Este om de stat, ne place sau nu. Aşadar, să-l cităm pe Obamez, cam pe acolo pe unde a bântuit şi Pulimea Sa în seara asta. 

" The defining issue of our time is how to keep that promise alive. No challenge is more urgent. No debate is more important. We can either settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well while a growing number of Americans barely get by, or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, and everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules. (Applause.)

What’s at stake aren’t Democratic values or Republican values, but American values. And we have to reclaim them. Let’s remember how we got here. Long before the recession, jobs and manufacturing began leaving our shores. Technology made businesses more efficient, but also made some jobs obsolete. Folks at the top saw their incomes rise like never before, but most hardworking Americans struggled with costs that were growing, paychecks that weren’t, and personal debt that kept piling up.

In 2008, the house of cards collapsed. We learned that mortgages had been sold to people who couldn’t afford or understand them. Banks had made huge bets and bonuses with other people’s money. Regulators had looked the other way, or didn’t have the authority to stop the bad behavior.

It was wrong. It was irresponsible. And it plunged our economy into a crisis that put millions out of work, saddled us with more debt, and left innocent, hardworking Americans holding the bag. In the six months before I took office, we lost nearly 4 million jobs. And we lost another 4 million before our policies were in full effect. Those are the facts. But so are these: In the last 22 months, businesses have created more than 3 million jobs. (Applause.)

Last year, they created the most jobs since 2005. American manufacturers are hiring again, creating jobs for the first time since the late 1990s. Together, we’ve agreed to cut the deficit by more than $2 trillion. And we’ve put in place new rules to hold Wall Street accountable, so a crisis like this never happens again."

Cu ce se laudă băselu? Că la americani criza a fost mai năpraznică, şi totuşi lucrurile se schimbă în bine, economia îşi revine, apar noi locuri de muncă, se afirmă cei din cercetare-dezvoltare, se agită cei din educaţie, etc. Au pe ce se baza. Statul american a înfiinţat noi locuri de muncă, şi-a plătit angajaţii, pe unii chiar mai bine. Statul român a desfiinţat locuri de muncă, şi-a umilit slujotorii, a risipit banii pe prostii. Dar avem o economie stabilă. Americanii, nu! Vai de capul lor!

Tonight, I want to speak about how we move forward, and lay out a blueprint for an economy that’s built to last -– an economy built on American manufacturing, American energy, skills for American workers, and a renewal of American values. On the day I took office, our auto industry was on the verge of collapse. Some even said we should let it die. With a million jobs at stake, I refused to let that happen. In exchange for help, we demanded responsibility. We got workers and automakers to settle their differences. We got the industry to retool and restructure. Today, General Motors is back on top as the world’s number-one automaker. (Applause.)

Chrysler has grown faster in the U.S. than any major car company. Ford is investing billions in U.S. plants and factories. And together, the entire industry added nearly 160,000 jobs. We bet on American workers. We bet on American ingenuity. And tonight, the American auto industry is back. (Applause.)

What’s happening in Detroit can happen in other industries. It can happen in Cleveland and Pittsburgh and Raleigh. We can’t bring every job back that’s left our shore. But right now, it’s getting more expensive to do business in places like China. Meanwhile, America is more productive. A few weeks ago, the CEO of Master Lock told me that it now makes business sense for him to bring jobs back home. (Applause.) Today, for the first time in 15 years, Master Lock’s unionized plant in Milwaukee is running at full capacity. (Applause.)

So we have a huge opportunity, at this moment, to bring manufacturing back. But we have to seize it. Tonight, my message to business leaders is simple: Ask yourselves what you can do to bring jobs back to your country, and your country will do everything we can to help you succeed. (Applause.) "
 
băselu şi ai lui nu doar că nu atrag investitori străini, dar îi alungă din ţară şi pe  cei existenţi, români sau nu. Politici industriale? Cum să nu! El a modernizat statul, deci ele nu mai sunt treaba lui! Treaba statului este să se împrumute scum, pentru nimic, şi din banii împrumutaţi să finanţeze ieftin dezvoltarea Americii! Kinki, nu?!
 
"I also hear from many business leaders who want to hire in the United States but can’t find workers with the right skills. Growing industries in science and technology have twice as many openings as we have workers who can do the job. Think about that –- openings at a time when millions of Americans are looking for work. It’s inexcusable. And we know how to fix it.
 
Jackie Bray is a single mom from North Carolina who was laid off from her job as a mechanic. Then Siemens opened a gas turbine factory in Charlotte, and formed a partnership with Central Piedmont Community College. The company helped the college design courses in laser and robotics training. It paid Jackie’s tuition, then hired her to help operate their plant.
 
I want every American looking for work to have the same opportunity as Jackie did. Join me in a national commitment to train 2 million Americans with skills that will lead directly to a job. (Applause.)
 
My administration has already lined up more companies that want to help. Model partnerships between businesses like Siemens and community colleges in places like Charlotte, and Orlando, and Louisville are up and running. Now you need to give more community colleges the resources they need to become community career centers -– places that teach people skills that businesses are looking for right now, from data management to high-tech manufacturing.
 
And I want to cut through the maze of confusing training programs, so that from now on, people like Jackie have one program, one website, and one place to go for all the information and help that they need. It is time to turn our unemployment system into a reemployment system that puts people to work. (Applause.)"
 
Să vă mai spun că acum, în România, nu mai găseşti mână de lucru calificată nici să dai cu tunu'?! Să vă mai spun că mâna de lucru cea mai bine calificată a plecat afară din cauza politicii salariilor mici, promovată inclusiv prin noul Cod al Muncii? 
 
"These reforms will help people get jobs that are open today. But to prepare for the jobs of tomorrow, our commitment to skills and education has to start earlier. For less than 1 percent of what our nation spends on education each year, we’ve convinced nearly every state in the country to raise their standards for teaching and learning -- the first time that’s happened in a generation. But challenges remain. And we know how to solve them.
 
At a time when other countries are doubling down on education, tight budgets have forced states to lay off thousands of teachers. We know a good teacher can increase the lifetime income of a classroom by over $250,000. A great teacher can offer an escape from poverty to the child who dreams beyond his circumstance. Every person in this chamber can point to a teacher who changed the trajectory of their lives. Most teachers work tirelessly, with modest pay, sometimes digging into their own pocket for school supplies -- just to make a difference.
 
Teachers matter. So instead of bashing them, or defending the status quo, let’s offer schools a deal. Give them the resources to keep good teachers on the job, and reward the best ones. (Applause.)


And in return, grant schools flexibility: to teach with creativity and passion; to stop teaching to the test; and to replace teachers who just aren’t helping kids learn. That’s a bargain worth making. (Applause.)
We also know that when students don’t walk away from their education, more of them walk the stage to get their diploma. When students are not allowed to drop out, they do better. So tonight, I am proposing that every state -- every state -- requires that all students stay in high school until they graduate or turn 18. (Applause.) "

Noi ce facem, sub băsaelu, cu educaţia? I-o dăm lui Funebriu, s-o reformeze, pentru a produce şi mai mulţi tâmpiţi, o politizăm, îi umilim pe profesori, le tăuiem salariile, alocăm doar circa 2% din PIB pentru educaţie, şi, în general, îi scoatem din şcoală cât mai devreme, să nu mai cheltuim bani pe curul lor! 

Vă invit să citiţi întregul discurs al Obamezului, pentru că merită. Este un exemplu de luciditate şi de respect faţă de Parlament, dar mai ales faţă de cetăţeni. E o sursă de inspiraţie pentru oricine vrea să facă politică de performanţă! 

De asta Obamezul e Obamez şi băsescu Pulimea Sa!

Liberale de stinga,stapine,lumineaza-ne si pe noi ,cei putin stiutori de carte,care nu stim de-alea straine. Cum ar fi in limba romana?

Constantin Gheorghe spunea...

La fel de frumos ca şi în limba engleză! De la Lenin citire: "Învăţaţi, învăţaţi, învăţaţi!"
Crede-mă, n-am nici timp, nici chef să traduc fiece citat din alte limbi. Când pot, fac şi asta, dar rar. Asta e!
