Clinton Praises Liberal Brazil

In Economics, Politics, Tax on May 27, 2010 at 7:38 pm

America could learn from Brazil in the area of redistribution of wealth according Hillary Clinton in this report.

A simple CIA World Factbook lookup presents a different story:

“Brazil continues to pursue industrial and agricultural growth and development of its interior. Exploiting vast natural resources and a large labor pool, it is today South America’s leading economic power and a regional leader, one of the first in the area to begin an economic recovery. Highly unequal income distribution and crime remain pressing problems.”

This content changes so I will cut and paste the whole intro paragraph at the end of this post.

Democrats Loyal to Calderon

In Consitution, Economics, Foreign Policy, Immigration, Politics on May 21, 2010 at 5:16 pm

We’ll, besides Barack Hussein Obama, The Democrats have shown where their loyalties are invested.  As Mexican Pres. Calderon chided Americans for their choice in AZ to handle illegal immigration, the Dems could not clap long or hard enough. It was as if Calderon was their president now.

I was beginning to wonder, because they have not shown much loyalty to the people that vote them in, so I was interested in who they are loyal toward besides this administration.  Rep. McClintock says it well here:

To me, it doesn’t matter WHAT other countries do for immigration. However, since Calderon is going to take us to task for the “severe” nature of our laws AND these brain numb politicians cannot read laws before they pass judgement on them are defacing AZ unnecessarily, I thought you might want to know what the Mexican Law is.  Here is the law MEXICO ENFORCES:
Opinion “C” is: The Federal Government is proving WHY they must be reigned back in to living by the United States Constitution.  If they don’t then they start living by the ideals of special interests and then leaders from border countries and then worse.   The worse that will likely happen is that they will ascribe to the ideals that drove other empires to become our enemies.  Oh. Wait.  They do that already.  Enter Marx and Mao and more.

This democratic party I hope is being seen for what it is.  A party that had a handful of good ideas infiltrated by descendants of the “Progressive” (which I term the “Regressive”) movement that started in the early 1900’s.

The good news is that the regressive agenda is getting to the surface of the ocean of politics and people on both sides of the aisle are getting a bigger picture view of how and who is driving this country toward the European socialist ideas that are crashing the economies of Greece, Spain, Italy and more.  Making this absurdity identifiable is going to be a big help in the next several elections.  It’s like there is a great big highlighter and it is pointing at these fools saying “Here…look…this is what you have to fix.”
The solution is for us to vote in alignment with the U.S. Constitution when you are called to cast that ballot.  Don’t be afraid to allow people who ascribe to restricting the Federal Government back to Constitutional boundaries.  This is the solution to the regressive problem in America and restore the sanity of liberty again.

Walk Tall Rand Paul

In Economics, Elections, Politics on May 18, 2010 at 9:37 pm

Rand Paul is yet another Tea Party victory that is starting to build.  It’s not the beginning, its a little beyond that now.  The Tea Party is putting in the hours, blood, sweat and tears and it is paying of still and will until this country is taken back.

Opininion “C” is: The nice thing about Rand is that his father Ron knows what sound economics is really all about.   So I normally don’t take a liking to dynasty elections, but in this case, I think it helps the country in the same way John Adams helped his son understand how to represent American ideals.

If you don’t know what Austrian Economics is, you better get to understand it soon if you want to make heads or tails of it as it is going to hopefully replace the Keynesian Economics that has ruined this country for the last 90 years.

I sense victory after victory.  But it will get more tough as we go so I hope the resolve grows as the need to persist grows.

No Bailout for Greece UNLESS…

In Consitution, Economics, Health Care, Politics, Social Issues, Supreme Court, Tax on May 17, 2010 at 3:49 pm

You are going to have to sit down for this one.  The IMF and it’s partners are telling Greece they need to PRIVATIZE their health care system to get the bailout money.   Not just this though.  They want Greece to get out of the all the private markets that are draining their funds.

READ ALL ABOUT IT!

Opinion “C” is: The truth will set us free.  NO government has really made government run health care systems work as well as the privatized model the United States has used for two centuries.  With all of the issues that government over regulation and strangle holds the feds have put on competition, the semi-free market still outperformed socialized medicine.

Greece is a prime example on several levels why we should abandon these politicians desire to “engineer” our society from inside of Washington D.C.  The sooner we admit it, the better off we will be.

I hope the plaintiffs in the U.S. Health Care repeal cases make this Greece example EXHIBIT A.

But, even if Greece gets smart and follows this rare good advice from on high, I still don’t think they should get a PENNY/EURO of bailout money.  The process of privatization should be good enough to get them to stick with what works and will pull them out of the slump they are in.  Just the same as it would in the United States.

“Quit Your Job” Says Nancy

In Economics, Elections, Health Care, Politics, Social Issues on May 17, 2010 at 11:40 am

I can’t make this stuff up.  Watch…

Opinion “C” is:  No Nancy, you “quit your JOB!”

If you think that the government is not trying to create a dependency on itself so that the people have no choice but to elect money redistributionist politicians (thieves…socialists) then you are in denial similar to a drug addict and are in need of an intervention.  Well you are in luck.  The intervention is scheduled for November.

Obama Health Care Bait & Switch

In Economics, Elections, Health Care, Politics, Social Issues on May 14, 2010 at 11:02 am

Anyone who has been on this planet for more than 5 years as a conscious adult knows that ESTIMATES are normally low when coming for anyone with interest in a contract going through.  It can be off anywhere from 5% to 200% depending on the ethics and education of the ones making the estimate.

How are ethics in Washington D.C. today?  How about health care or economic education.  My assumption is that the politicians in control have low ethics.  They are also not well educated as they are following Keynesian methodologies of economic thought.

The CBO is a little better but not much.  So as far as I am concerned, this whole health care law is a bait and switch to continue taking our money and shoving it into the pockets of special interests.  This is the latest from the CBO.  The new REPORT states:

“CBO estimates that total authorized costs in the first two categories probably exceed$115 billion over the 2010-2019 period, as detailed below.1 We do not have an estimate of the potential costs of authorizations in the third category.”
The problem I see with this statement is not just the $115 BILLION dollar mistake, but also the fact that the “third” part of the initiative has not been fully reviewed.  Contractors know that means there is likely MORE bad news on the way.  In the business world people and companies can be sued for baiting and switching.  One hopes that we can return the law and get our money back and the expense is spared.  If not, there is going to be some additional Tea Party Support in the coming weeks.

Revive the Archive of America

In Consitution, Economics, Elections, Politics on May 13, 2010 at 12:58 pm

They say to solve a crime or a problem you have to dig out all the details and go as far back to the beginning as possible.  I don’t know who “they” are, but I agree with “them”.  I know that Thomas Jefferson was just a human.  But what a human.  Capable of consolidating and describing the will and intent of the American public against a tyrannical government.  One that overtaxed and lorded power over the civilians of the colonies.

A lot changed since then.  We now have a history of breaking from the tyranny of the Crown of England then living just about fully free through about 1913 and then we have been in a slow decent from full freedom back to living under a tyrannical government.  This time the tyranny is our own.  So now, this is sort of a family feud with no land to run to.

To solve this problem, we need to go back and learn from how Jefferson and the others did this the first time.  I am truly greatful to all American citizens who understand that the slippery slope is not starting but ending now in a socialism of the Federal Nanny State.  We need to get back to the principles of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

We all need to know how we broke free.  We need to know how we started to loose this freedom.  We need to be resolved to getting back to what made this country great.

The Declaration of Independence – The U.S. Constitution – The Bill of Rights.  Read them yourself here:

Then watch the video and read about how the Federal Reserve was created and is crushing our economy:

https://opinionc.wordpress.com/2010/05/12/banking-mystery-uncovered/

Then do a bit more research and elect the representatives that will undo this problem and bring America back to it’s real Glory Days.

God Bless America!

Use US in the process!

Banking Mystery Uncovered

You want to know what inflation really is.  Watch this:

http://usatrustonline.com/index.php/articles-videos/9-teaching-videos/27-the-mystery-of-banking

Opinion “C” is: Until we elect enough people in this country who are far more freedom minded to the point they will solve the 1913 Federal Reserve underhanded evaporation of economic freedom in this country, we will ALWAYS be played by the political forces that be.  America.  Enslaved until truly economically free.

Think you are not a slave?  Do you see the taxes that come out of your check.  Would you be fined or jailed if you stopped paying them?    There is a better way folks.  This country did it from 1776 to 1913.  We can do it again.  YES WE CAN!

Oil Spill – Hay, No Biggie

In Economics, Environment, Politics on May 10, 2010 at 11:21 pm

You only need to step back from a problem for a few hours sometimes.  Watch this:

Opinion “C” is: Drill HERE; Drill NOW!  Let the southern smart ones take care of the rest!

UPDATE: This article states that hay is actually a good choice, hair is even better as a natural alternative, and then of course there are the synthetics.  I like the natural choices the best from an environmental point of view.  If some of the hay and hair is not collected, the wild life will be fine.  If the polypropylene substances are not picked up, it could be bad for the food chain.
