Doing opinion pieces is like setting off firecrackers in an Echo Chamber – chances are your ears will end up hurting.
In respect of the wide range of varying opinions I’ve drafted and left unpublished several dozen posts, and am current deciding if they will ever publish.
The Anti-Tax Tea Parties have been a great success. Now the follow up must happen.
The Main Stream Media has fallen all over itself either mocking the Tea Parties or Ignoring them all together.
Matters not, as the MSM is in the dazed stupor of a mortally wounded dying beast failing to notice its time had already passed.
The claims from the administration that they have already cut taxes is a bold of a misstatement that the President didn’t bow to the Arab King.
They can talk what they will, but our senses (and lightened pocketbooks) belie the hollowness of their claims.
I don’t know what everyone will do, but it sure seems like time for a Second Pot of TEA, followed by a Third, Fourth, Fifth and endless Tea Parties until the Government rolls back their theft by taxation.
Do you know anyone who has “seen” the stimulus or more accurately the government subsidies?
There are those nose-in-trough trying for access to these funds, but other than the poisoned TARP monies forced on Healthy Banks, where are the dollars?
Perhaps it is the natural delay of processing?
Or perhaps the ink isn’t dry on the additional fiat currency to be distributed?
Could it be smoke & mirrors – that there is little actual stimulus money?
Wouldn’t that be called lying?
Or is that just “Politics?”
‘splain Inflation to me…..
I am getting confused – back in school the explanation seemed so simple:
Inflation was caused by increasing the supply of money (value tokens as the fellow called them) faster than any increase in value of the backing commodity (Gold once upon a time, the Goodwill of a Society’s Economy in our fiat currency present).
Simple enough to understand – sort of like saying if a government divvied up the base value into more bits of money, then each bit of money would be worth something less than it had been before.
But BHO’s team keeps telling me it is High Prices that cause inflation – which as nothing to do the underlying value of any bit of money or the total supply of money.
Then they tell us it is the evil’s of a Laize Faire economy, which seems
even worse nonsense as it is that Laize Fair economy that got us this far.
So what is inflation?
‘splain it to me…..
In the words of a one writer “Easy… Liberals/Democrats/Communists simply don’t understand economics.
Economics is kind of like physics… I have an expression, “Physics is a real bitch.” It is what it is, and all the denial can’t change it. The laws of physics are as set in stone as mathematics. No matter how much you try to deny it, 2 + 2 still equals 4. And even if the state of Missouri redefines it, pi is still 3.14159(and a whole bunch of more numbers). It will never, ever be equal to 3.
Just recently the statement was made that some of us would have to accept a smaller “piece of the pie” in order for others to have more.
No, we don’t.”
“I had an economist tell me that there’s no such thing as a piece of the pie. In a capitalist economy, you just go to the kitchen and bake your own.” another friend comments.
And his father said “You know, if I get ahead, it does not have to be at the expense of others.
If I am inventive, and through hard work create things that produce wealth, it is not at the expense of others.
If I grow corn in my garden, my neighbor will not starve to death because I have corn that I grew myself.”
So don’t buy the BS, Inflation is a manifestation of direct government action.
And the government is a manifestation of our direction action/inaction.
Painful to watch the new Socialist Administration screw up so much, so quick.
It isn’t as if world history wasn’t full of examples of how a Laize Faire economy pushed into a Socialist State fails.
They think that with a strong grip on business & taxpayers they can force both to “lay more Golden Eggs” while they in fact are throttling the Golden Geese.
A Free Market suddenly made very much less free responds to the paradigm shift to Socialism by withholding productivity.
Atlas will Shrug – the innovators, producers and leaders will pull back.
Who can blame them when their efforts go from being well rewarded to the Socialist punishment for success.
It is a fallacy that Socialism raises up the masses to a higher level, instead it simply forces everything down to the lowest common denominator.
Whether the Democrats or the Democrat-Lites (Republicans as they are called) our Constitution and People are being sold out to a Socialist set of ideals at our expense.
Bought a couple drinks for social acquaintances I ran into while out with friends for a Businessman’s Evening out.
Stunned we were when once they had quaffed a bit of the wine & beer I had bought them with money from my earned wages, that they then proceeded by monologue to tell me how magnificent BHO & his Socialism was.
“Did you see Obama last night, wasn’t he simple Magnificant??!!”
Lacking in the intellectual process, it is obvious these Union waifs are spending their lives looking for institutional parents.
Too smart to pretend to even be unaware of the type of group they had joined, they compounded our awareness of their ignorance by their thought that any of us gives a toss or one speck of what they have to say after they insult a group of business owners with their Koolaide dementia.
There is a reason these sort of folk work for someone else.
Only one of our group, who has to be sensitive to the liberal side lest he be made sleep in the garage at home, was willing to keep up any conversation with these folk, and afterwards almost to man everyone asked “who were those fools? What is with the evil crap from the bitch and doesn’t the fellow have a set of balls to tell his wife to shut up?”
On a lighter side , I did notice that drinks bought with earned wages, made of stuff from real capitalist enterprises taht produced the wine & beer, simply doesn’t choke Socialists, specially when they are not paying their own tab.
This week we’ve had BHO present more of his Insane Anti-Math in his budget.
He is living up to his promises to the take earnings from those who have earned them and give them unearned to those who have not earned them.
Simple words, this is called Thievery.
Theft by position of office.
When we wake up to the facts, rather than the aura the Media is putting around this clown, the stealing is comprehensive.
Here is where from:
- Stealing from your pension
- Stealing from the next generation
- Stealing from the value of the dollar you hold
- Stealing from your freedoms
- Stealing from your inalienable rights
- Stealing from your free will
We’re suckers to allow this to even be discussed, much less come into play.
Wonder how many “Golden Geese” taxpayers being stolen from by the BHO plan will simple stop laying their “Golden Eggs?”
Then our Goose really will be cooked.
Maybe all the times BHO responded “Present” to Illinois votes were, as to paraphrase Pres. Theodore Roosevelt, his being unable to recounter whether he should respond “Present” or the more correct “Guilty!”
Present administration is appointing so called “Czars” right & left.
Even Sen. Byrd (D) has cautioned them these Czars are extra-constitutional, have no pass-down authority and are dangerously unaccountable to either the people or the congress.
We are a land with NO Royalty, even if some politician wants to make up cutesy names to mask illegal powers being given to appointees.
One wonders if any court could support a Czar’s wishes as if they had ANY authority. The hollowness of their positions, their inability to operate at the level the President imagines with neither Constitutional Authority nor Empowerment as Representatives of the Government by confirmation by Congress is absolutely clear.
Like the foolish Cadets or “Third Lieutenants” often found wandering around Basic Training companies, the can only have authority by running to figures of actual authority and are actually lower than the enlisted soldiers they imagine they can boss around, these Czars are empty shirts.
Mr President, in the case of your Czars, “The Emperor has no Clothes” – these people may be YOUR advisors, but they have NO authority over We the People.
I’ve held off doing much posting, as other pressing needs have kept me from spending much time talking with primary sources.
And to be honest I’m not happy to spend time wading through nightmare socialism trying to find something good in the midst of horrible national politics.
Per an email:
I will be in person at the polls this morning.
Get Out and Vote!
Don’t care a pinch what the MSM (MainStream Media) says – my vote for McCain will at least deny Obama that one more bit of media claimed mandate, even if my candidate isn’t able to win.
We are experiencing as a nation the results of handing the vote out so freely that we included those in deep conflict of interest in the vote.
Our founding fathers required you meet requirements – be landed (invested and a producer in modern terms) – to vote.
We face the possibility of being outvoted by those on dependent on the government, voting for Marxists-in-Democrat’s-Clothing who have promised to take from us and give it a vote-bribes to these dependents of the government.
We cannot afford to allow them any more of a mandate even if we appear loosing the race.
Even if the Networks call it for the Marxists, we need to vote for our team.
Over the next weeks we may be discussing how to get our heads down to weather a Marxist presidency.
We may be fighting off the worse of so many voting for out of racial guilt for this Marxism.
But now we need to be sure we vote.
Godspeed and may our man win.
Could not agree more.
If you don’t vote you have no horse in the race, and can’t bitch.
Simple as that.
