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.”

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.

Banking Mystery Uncovered

In Consitution, Economics, Elections, Politics, Tax on May 12, 2010 at 12:28 pm

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!

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.

Top Investigators on Obama Birth Trail

In Consitution, Elections, Politics, Supreme Court, Tax on May 10, 2010 at 1:35 pm

The last well rounded news report on the matter is here.  Fortune 500 experienced professional investigators are on the case.  The pressure is mounting.

Opinion “C” is: It matters.  Hopefully it goes without saying that anything he signs is a fraud if his Hawaiian birth claim is.  Good bye ObamaCare, Post-Bush Bailouts and what appears to be the next in Cap and Tax/Trade.  LTC Lakin will have a point in his refusal to go to Afghanistan.  And there are so many other factors.

If he was born in Hawaii, then he should stop spending his legal dollars to hide it and spend it to expose it.  (If he was born in Hawaii, what is to hide?? Why waste the MONEY???)

If he was born in Kenya, then all tax payers should sue for damages against him and the DNC.  We certainly would want our change back.

Cap and Trade Passes Level 1

Go there and find out what you are going to pay if it passes final votes.  Do the poll too.

This is a fantasy tax.  It taxes the fantastic notion that CO2 is harmful.  Even though 31,000 plus scientists disagree, but hey these are the most intelligent politicians ever right?

Opinion “C” is: This is going to pass just like ObamaCare.  It will be a great motivator for November. Read the rest of this entry »

Cleaning House: Bennett First; Not Last

In Elections, Politics, Social Issues, Tax on May 8, 2010 at 8:46 pm

Everyone is going to have their take tomorrow on all of the news channels on just what the demise of the Bennett incumbency means and how it really happened .  Some will blame strange election rules of the Utah Republican convention and others will blame 10 other oddities about Utah for the Bennett upset today.  That is ok.

Opinion “C” is:  The Tea Party is flexing it’s honorable peaceful muscles in Utah.  Who gets Tea Party cleanup next?  What we all have to remember, is that the conservative surge is on the rise and no matter what weird rules are applied to the process, conservatives will take every advantage of every crack in the process.  More importantly, Read the rest of this entry »

Congressman Baird You Were Wrong

In Health Care, Politics, Social Issues, Tax on May 4, 2010 at 8:23 pm

Opinion “C” is:

(May 3rd, Baird letter below this response)

May 4th, 2010

Dear Congressman Baird,

I appreciate that you took the time to respond to those of us who do not agree with this “health care” legislation.

I doubt my email in a sea of thousands is going to change your mind, as it appears from your message below, that you strongly believe health insurance is far more important than civil liberty.  But I must write anyway.

As you may well know, the people that are opposed to the recent health care legislation are generally interested not just in health care, but in a whole host if issues. The first is Liberty.   Read the rest of this entry »

Time – Money – Quality

In Tax on April 8, 2010 at 11:32 pm

Every day, in business, politics; life, people struggle to make the right decisions that create the most efficient and desirable results.  One of the things we learn in business school and especially on project planning is the efficiency trinity.  If you are not familiar with this imagine a triangle with three sides all equal.   On one corner is the word “Time”, the second “Money”, and the third “Quality”.  The first thing you learn, either in school or in the real world is that no matter what you do, there is no such thing as cheap, quick, superior product.  Sure now we create products fast, but quality if there is any is as a result of the money spent on tool and die automation.  That is not cheap.

Think of the pressures this way.  If you want something fast with a great amount of quality, you are going to likely spend more money to get that result.  If you want something fast and cheap you will sacrifice quality.  If you don’t want to pay a lot and want it to have a high degree of quality, it is going to take a long time to get there.
