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 »

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.

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!

Congressman Baird You Were Wrong

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 »

Really – It’s Not About Health Care

In Social Issues on March 31, 2010 at 7:34 pm

How often does a bill out of congress really solve the issue its stated intention claims.  I’m not talking about all of the various resolutions that honor our countrymen and women for meritorious service to this country.  I am not even talking about appropriations bills that are required to keep the military operational and all other agencies lights on and civil servants paid. Servants? We’ll come back to that in another post.

I am talking about the several bills a year that attempt to solve social issues.   This is the muddy area.  Subjective by nature, this a primary arena where many passionate debaters wage the war of ideas.  We don’t quibble over most of the simple bills in congress.  Except maybe the ones that congratulate presidents for getting peace prizes before peace is obtained or for non-accomplishments other than peace at all.  And even these debates get hot and then die fast due to the lack of permanent damage.  I think many of us who disagree with these just think “how ridiculous” and move on.  You can give the President a Cleo for all the creative advertising of his ideas for all I care.

Health Care Reform? Don’t Think So

In Social Issues on March 30, 2010 at 2:52 pm

Last year I thought there might be a little credibility to the notion that the Federal Government may have some compassion on our less fortunate in terms of what we all can afford in health care costs. This was interesting to me because I had been thinking for a few years now how the price of premiums is not commensurate with the amount of service I was getting. It really struck home when I did not have coverage and low and behold I got better care from a generous non-profit clinic than I did from a medical doctor paid for through insurance means.
