Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Happy Fourth of July, everyone. God bless America. The question is: Will there still be an America, or capitalism, after President Barack Obama is through with his second term?

It sure doesn’t look good to me. We have no money for fireworks displays at military bases across America and no money for patriotic fly-overs at military academy graduation ceremonies. We are letting down our heroes, the people who sacrifice selflessly for us.

But there was $100 million for Obama’s trip to visit Africa, and Obama has now pledged $7 billion to double electricity access in Africa. This has to be a comedy skit, right? This must be a nightmare. It can’t be for real, right? Seven billion dollars for African electricity, while he kills the coal industry so average, middle-class Americans won’t be able to afford our own electric bills? What about our $17 trillion debt in America, our trillion-dollar deficit, our disgraceful failing public schools or our aging and decrepit infrastructure?

And Obama also has billions of dollars in aid as well as military aid for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the Palestinians? Even the protesters in Tahir Square in Cairo are accusing Obama of propping up the Muslim Brotherhood. Are you kidding me? Something is deep-down deadly wrong, folks. This man is destroying our country and our economy. He is killing the middle class. He is making a mockery of American values across the globe.

But don’t take my word for it. Let me give you perhaps the perfect example. Everything I just mentioned is child’s play compared to Obama’s newest directive. Now, Obama has truly gone off the deep end. He’s thrown off his cloak to show the “S” on his chest, standing for social justice. Obama has just decided to kick the U.S. economy while it’s down.

What’s Obama’s latest brainstorm? Force businesses to hire criminals — and not just any criminals. Obama wants black criminals to step to the front of the employment line. If only I were joking.

Obama’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is charging the automaker BMW and the national retailer Dollar General with racism, discrimination and violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act for using criminal background checks before hiring employees.

How can this be? Don’t companies have a right to check backgrounds before hiring employees that represent them? Don’t companies have a right not to hire convicted criminals? Not anymore. Not in Obama’s America. At least, not if the criminal is black.

The Obama government’s logic is frightening. The EEOC argues that because blacks are more likely to have been convicted of a crime, doing a criminal check discriminates against blacks. So when you won’t hire an applicant because of his criminal record you are… wait for it… yes, a racist.

Seriously, folks. This is happening in the United States of America. If the courts hold for Obama, this will be the final body blow to job creation, economic freedom and the U.S. economy.

But let’s set that aside for a moment and think what this does to your own civil rights.

When you hand your credit card to the clerk in a store, wouldn’t you like to know he isn’t a convicted identity thief? When you walk into an empty home for sale, wouldn’t you like to know if the realtor is a murderer? When your wife goes for a massage, wouldn’t you like to know the masseuse isn’t a convicted rapist? Or, worse yet, when your child goes to school, child care or an after-school program, wouldn’t you like to know the person you’re leaving your child with isn’t a convicted predator, sexual abuser or pornographer? If Obama gets his way, there will be no way of knowing, certainly not if the employee is black.
