Fascist Pot Says Kettle Black

In Immigration, Politics, Social Issues on June 11, 2010 at 8:00 pm

Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo) (article link) is comparing Arizona to a police state. Better yet he went as far as comparing the law to Nazi Germany.

“It is absolutely reminiscent of second class status of Jews in Germany prior to World War II when they had to have their papers with them at all times and were subject to routine inspections at the suspicion of being Jewish,” Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo)

Arizona is doing what it should be doing. Enforcing a federal law!  That’s right; Arizona’s law is only mirroring federal law. Title 8 of the U.S. Code Section 1304e, Section 1306a.   Read the rest of this entry »

New Marxist Serves Clinton & Obama

World Net Daily reports that Ben Scott, policy director at a George Soros funded organization calling itself Free Press, has taken a key state department position. The former director is now a policy advisor for innovation. The positions key role is for the government to work with nonprofit organizations to identify programs that have had proven success in tackling social problems, such as homelessness and joblessness, and then to expand those programs across the country. The government feels it cannot tackle social issues alone.

So what’s wrong with that? Read the rest of this entry »

Analysis Flawed on Kagan Audience

In Politics, Social Issues, Supreme Court on May 27, 2010 at 10:41 pm

You have to try and read this analysis (Click Here) without …well you read it…then come back.  Or just take my summary if you just cannot wait to hear what I think (I am sure you can’t wait!)

My summary of her article is:  Young people don’t care about morals so the media need not care about that when reporting on Kagan because these 20 somethings are the people she would serve and we should just give them what they want.

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.

The Government Trust Ingredient

In Elections, Politics, Social Issues on May 16, 2010 at 6:24 pm

Every politician with integrity and intelligence knows that the only resume items of any real value are the accomplishments that prove their word is trust worthy.  You would think more politicians would take this seriously and learn from those who figured it out.  As a side note, the socialists are making good on their promise to change this country fundamentally into a fascist or socialist nation.

According to this report, the smarter we get, the more wealthy we become.  The more wealthy we become the less we trust in the government.  It describes this not as an American process, but universal truth across the globe.

It is also my hypothesis that the less we trust something, someone, the less we associate with them.  Keep your friends close; enemies closer, is not a normal human action or reaction.  It is a behavior only war tacticians, whether the war is physical or cultural, engage in.

What if all that is true? Read the rest of this entry »

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.

Squeaky Wheel is Greece

In Consitution, Economics, Foreign Policy, Politics, Social Issues, Tax on May 10, 2010 at 10:42 pm

When your children waste their money, and you want to let them learn a lesson from it, you just give them more to waste right?  Well that is the Greek formula.  Quote from the CIA:

In April 2010 a leading credit agency assigned Greek debt its lowest possible credit rating; in response, the International Monetary Fund and Eurozone goverments pledged more than $160 billion in support of Greece over the next three years.

Opinion “C” is: So let that be a lesson to all you socialist nations inept at economics.  You have nothing to fear.  Except when the United States of America adopts your same poor money management skills.  Reminds me of when Superman wanted to convert from Hero to Human.  There was no one to save the world then.  I wonder if the U.S. can reverse the transformation in time?  Time is running out.
