Plantation to dean -- -- morning what do you mean government.

The success of that blacks were liberated -- -- First Act to liberate blacks.
But you know it in -- it was a long struggle for blacks to gain employment jobs and housing so we have come a very long way.
But sadly when I talk about government plantation I believe President Obama is creating an entitlement.
That is driving more more Americans to seek government assistance which is what I call the government plantation not talk about this in my book.
Are you using the term note slavery.
Too loosely I mean you know that obviously conjures images of violence degradation.
A comparing that's what the government is doing now is that too much of a stretch close and I call it.
Slavery from physical slavery to economic slavery.
Obama has put up too many barriers against hard working Americans where really people are suffering from -- living standards.
If you'll -- is energy policy for example.
You know high energy prices are regressive.
High energy prices harm the war the ones on low income they are least able to afford high energy prices in New York.

What -- you can use that funding is limited.
Based on government rules so why are -- getting that message.
That's why we're here today and people should be recognized that fact that Obama is creating -- in the an entitlement -- society.
And people need to be gainfully employed so they can make their own decisions and choices and to best support themselves and their families -- -- -- again the book is called.
