Fourth Branch Of Government

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , on July 15, 2021 by andelino

It’s bad enough that none of the alphabet “security” agencies were written into our Constitution. Now they have become politicized. They no longer adhere to any rule of law. They ARE the law and can do what they want. They certainly aren’t answerable to the American people.

We saw former NSA Director James Clapper lie to Congress about collecting data from hundreds of millions of Americans and about leaking the Steele Dossier information. We saw ex-CIA director and communist John Brennan lie about spying on Congress. Nothing happened to them. They are above the law.

The CIA now allows and approves torture. They call it “enhanced interrogation.” Yep, we a rogue agency engaged in torture.

We saw the FBI push through “illegal” FISA warrants in order to take down President Trump during the bogus Russia collusion malarkey. We saw how Mueller used over a dozen heavily FBI men to surround a peaceful, non-resisting Roger Stone on trumped-up charges. The CIA-influenced CNN was, of course, tipped off to the early morning raid.

We saw the FBI help encourage Trump supporters to protest at the Capitol while refusing to release videotapes that will prove their operatives were there. The FBI even seized a lego-made capitol building from one of the so-called “insurrectionists.”

We saw the FBI sit on Hunter Biden’s laptop. They did nothing. They certainly did not investigate the obvious corruption on display by the Biden’s. They also knew all about Epstein’s child abuse for years. They did nothing.

Tucker Carlson told us how the NSA is spying on his email in order find something that could possibly get him kicked off the air. Tucker confirmed what we knew already—Snowden had already told us all about it. Snowden is a whistleblower and hero, but he had to escape prosecution and possible assassination through exile to Russia.

We saw how false flag “terrorism” was used to give the TSA new powers to “grope and fondle” people at the airports.

All of these so-called “security agencies” have grown in scope and power over the years and, like “Big Government”, they want more power and influence over the direction of the country. They are aligned with the radical left and globalism.

What’s next? Will we see a Lubyanka prison constructed in Washington D.C.? Will the political enemies of Biden’s regime be whisked off the streets and shoved into cramped cells and then subjected to “enhanced interrogation” until they “confess?” Don’t be surprised if this happens. Don’t be surprised if a “network of gulags” is also set up.

The FEMA camps won’t be about “slave” labor, though. They’ll be about the “extermination” of the security agencies’ political enemies.

JFK wanted to break up the CIA. It’s too bad he was executed by them instead. Allen Dulles was fired by Kennedy, yet he was the leading man on the Warren Commission, which helped cover up the CIA’s crime.

It’s time to break up the CIA for good. Let the military conduct intelligence gathering on foreign countries. Stop trying to subvert other countries. That often leads to blow-back and endless war.

Break up the FBI too and let individual states assign marshals to fight real crime—not investigate or invent wrong doings against their perceived political enemies.

Do away with the NSA for their gross and repeated violations of the law. It’s a felony to read private mail of US citizens. Let the branches of the military monitor foreign enemies and let us Americans have our Fourth Amendment back.

The politicized security agencies will always hide and cower behind the magical phrase, “national security!” They are allowed to know everything about us. We are allowed to know nothing about them. When that happens, people begin to “fear and despise the government.

It should be the other way around…and besides, the security agencies are NOT the government and our government is not the country.

Government Tyranny

Public Servants Have Become Petty Tyrants
By Rep. Tom McClintock

Congressman Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) represents California’s 4th Congressional District.

Quarantine is the forced confinement of a person who has contracted or been exposed to an infectious disease.

Although it is a long-standing police power of governments, it is seldom used because it is seldom-needed – sick people generally stay home on their own. When it must be used, it is subject to due process: the right to contest the order in court, to present evidence that the order is invalid, and to have it vacated.

What is happening today is radically different and profoundly UN-American: the indefinite and indiscriminate home detention without due process of perfectly healthy people on the pretext that they might catch a contagious disease. While it is true that some people may be infectious without knowing it, that’s no different than a wide variety of other contagious diseases that have been with us for generations and that are far more lethal than COVID-19.

Although some local jurisdictions prohibited large public gatherings during the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918, never before has any American government attempted to confine an entire population in its homes, order the mass shuttering of businesses, and deliberately plunge tens of millions of Americans into unemployment, poverty, and despair.

This new power, asserted in increasingly arbitrary and aggressive manners by public servants-turned-masters, is antithetical to our First Amendment right to peaceably assemble and our Fifth Amendment right to not be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. The courts recognize some restrictions of these rights, but only by the least restrictive means,” not arbitrary and unreasonable edicts.

In California, this abusive power has been used to deny citizens the right to protest the abuse itself. In North Carolina, the Raleigh Police Department declared, “Protesting is a non-essential activity.” In Pennsylvania, police fined a woman $200 for taking a solitary drive in her own car. A San Diego woman is threatened with a $1,000 fine and jail-time for participating in a protest. Ironically, while law-abiding citizens are arrested for exercising rights guaranteed under their Bill of Rights, authorities are releasing thousands of criminals from prisons and in California, forbidding sheriffs from holding a wide class of criminal suspects, including burglars.

The greatest threat of this newly asserted power is to alter fundamentally the relationship between Americans and their government. It is the age-old question that Cecil B. DeMille framed in his introduction to “The Ten Commandments.” “Are men the property of the state, or are they free souls under God?” 

Every time we step outside our homes, the risks we face multiply. A free society assumes that its citizens are competent to assess those risks, balance them against the avoidance costs, and to manage their decisions in a generally responsible way. It’s called common sense, and is a necessary prerequisite for self-government and liberty.

When a risk presents itself, people naturally change their behavior. If they believe the risk of leaving their houses is too great, they are free to stay at home. If they believe venturing beyond their front doors is a manageable risk, they are free to venture into the world, taking those precautions that to them seem most prudent.

In an epidemic, their assessments of risk might convince them to avoid crowded theaters or restaurants, wash their hands more frequently, avoid handshakes, wear masks, or become hermits. These acts don’t require force and don’t make demands on others. They are a matter of individual judgment and choice.

The choice of an octogenarian with emphysema in New York City might be very different from a healthy college student in Iowa. Only a fool would claim the omniscience to make an informed judgment for every person in every circumstance in every community. Sadly, the crisis has revealed that fools abound in public office and that a fool with power can quickly become a petty tyrant.

In this pandemic, many elected officials have abandoned the practices of a free society and crossed some very bright lines that separate free Americans from those unfortunate to live under authoritarian regimes. Communist China pioneered the practices now inflicted on our own citizens. That should scream a warning to us all.

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice.

On the other hand, West Virginia’s Gov. Jim Justice is seeing it a little different and was being credited for “spicing” things up when he dropped an “F-bomb” into the mix.

“I encourage all businesses that are allowed to open to do so only if they fucking follow the guidelines to keep West Virginians safe,” Justice can be heard saying during a recorded press conference.

Here is the original video and Jim’s laughable apology…

“I cannot stop laughing. The governor’s audio glitch explanation is so, so good” — j.d. durkin (@jiveDurkey) May 5, 2020

Not to be left behind, beloved “tyrant” Governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer was freaking out about Asian Murder Hornets

When asked about the utility of such suits, considering that the hornets are able to sting through them, Gretchen calmly pointed out that the questioner was obviously a “racist Nazi” who wanted citizens of Michigan to die.

Eat, Drink and be Merry

Eat, Drink and be Merry 01

It’s that time of year again when people “eat, drink and spend money” more than any other “time of the year.”

It’s the time when evils like “exclusion, greed, acquisition, excess, family and unfairness,” all are couched between “Thanksgiving” and observing the birth of “Jesus” which become the order of the “Reason for the Season.”

Eat, Drink and be Merry 02

It has always been the Christians “desire”to counter these “evils” and make everyone feel “guilty” for their so called “blessings” by calling attention to the ongoing plight of “the homeless, the hungry, the poor and the destitute.”

Eat, Drink and be Merry 03

Indeed, when was the “last” time you turned on the local news on “Thanksgiving Day,” without being “bombarded” with images of “starving” masses lined up at a “shelter” for the only meal they’ll “ever” have all year?

Or stories of people “camping” out in tents on the “sidewalks” of businesses in spite of the “cold and lack of sanitary facilities,” all because they have no “job” to go to, no “family” with which to spend “quality” time, but most importantly, no “life” at all?

Eat, Drink and be Merry 04

For years Liberals “blamed” this sad state of affairs “first” on Reagan and then Bush. They “demanded” a government “solution” to this problem these “Christians” caused.

When Obama was “elected,” they finally had the solution they’d been “waiting” for.

Between Obama and a Democratic majority in both House and Senate, they “shoved” Christianity out of the way and set out to “prove” that Government “can and will always do a better job than God!”

Alas, “almost” eight years on, the “poor” are still with us and “life” is worse. It’s getting harder and harder to “convince” people that the long-lasting “consequences” of Reagan/Bush policies are at “fault.”

They’ve even classified “climate change” as the biggest threat to “national and global security.”

After forty-plus years of “warning” Americans that we have “less” than ten years to “save the planet,” we must grudgingly “concede” that we can’t exactly blame people for “reacting” to Christian predictions of “Judgment Day” taking place in 1975, then 1984, then 2000, etc.

Clearly we still need to “work” on our messaging.

In the meantime, “progressive” Liberals decided to put the “burden” back where it belongs, with the “Christians” who always “wanted” it.

It’s time to let them take the “blame” and demand they “solve” these problem, at least until Hillary’s “coronation,” when we’ll have more of the “right” people in charge.

Eat, Drink and be Merry 05

I found a YouTube video by some “guy” no one ever heard of. Someone who would easily be “forgotten” in the ensuing chaos.

Someone who would never get the fifteen minutes of “fame” he hoped to enjoy, because his “obscure” whack jobbery to “scapegoat” an entire Christian movement.

He “ranted” some nonsense about “Christmas” and the color of “Starbucks” cups and voila “The Starbucks Red Cup Kerfuffle” was born.

Thanks to the masses on “social media” already bored with Ben Carson’s “lies” and in desperate need of something “bright and shiny” to distract and ultimately “offend” and fill them with “outrage,” the Red Cup controversy not only went “viral” within hours, but just as “swiftly” developed a consensus of “group-think” guaranteed to “squelch” any threat of “backlash, push back, whiplash, ass whup, or even pussy whup.”

So much “glorious” Christian bashing! Scrolling down Facebook “news” feeds, all I saw was meme after meme after meme “scolding” all of Christianity for having nothing “better to do” with their time than “whine” about a red cup that made no mention of their “Savior.”

Eat, Drink and be Merry 06

Meme after meme after meme “exhorting” Christians to go out and “shelter the homeless, feed the starving, clothe the naked, employ the jobless, adopt the unwanted,” all the things they don’t “want” Government to do because they’ve insisted since time “immemorial” that they can do a “better” job of it.

That “raises” the question then why are the “homeless, starving, naked, jobless, unwanted,” etc. still with us?

Because Christians are too busy “raising” a big unholy stink about the “color” of a coffee cup.

What is it with their “hatred” of color? “I don’t like red cups. I don’t like the black man in the White House. I don’t like the gay rainbow flag.”

Starbucks Red Cup 08

Jesus said “the poor will always be with us.” Now his so-called followers “refuse” to do anything to “help” them, yet they “didn’t” want the Government to help them, “either.”

“Therefore, this season, when you see or read the same stories about the hungry lining up to be fed, the homeless queuing up to be sheltered, the people camping outside the stores hoping a great deal on a piece of merchandise within will make their prolonged suffering, deprivation, and subsequent trampling by like-minded victims of capitalism worth the wait, the trouble, and the money they never had to part with since they never worked for it, because they had no job…blame the Christians.”

And when you sit down this season to “partake” of what others “cannot,” because of Christians, you shouldn’t “feel” guilty.

Eat, Drink and be Merry 07

After all, Christians “brought” society to this, and “only” Government is the people’s “true” salvation.

Blessing of the Taxes

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , on November 28, 2013 by andelino

Blessing of the Taxes 01During Thanksgiving, Americans traditionally give thanks to the government for what it has distributed to them.

All conscientious community members are required to experience (a) deep gratitude to the Government and its leaders; (b) unworthiness in the face of the glorious state; (c) guilt for consuming according to their needs and not giving back enough according to their abilities.

The non-compliant will have their belongings redistributed to the more worthy members of the community.

This year’s progressive “Thanksgiving” prayer has been updated for the 2013-2014 tax year and was written by Economist Professor Kurgman, PhD.

As much as I abhor Christianity, I occasionally attend progressive churches in my community – as long as the pastor expounds on socialism and its variants like environmental causes, and the rights of the oppressed masses of gays, women, Black Americans, Palestinians, Cubans, and Hezbollah.

My local pastor rarely talks about anything else. He even asked me to compose a prayer for this week’s Thanksgiving sermon. Now, everybody knows that Thanksgiving observance does nothing more than perpetuate the Holocaust of the Native American. What positive meaning could be found in such a grotesquely shameful holiday? After lengthy meditation my admirable laser-sharp mind of an economist with three PhDs immediately was blessed with the brilliant, socially significant prayer answer below.

Blessing of the Taxes 02

Blessing of the Government Taxes

Let me, Dear God, shift the paradigm on this Thanksgiving and blissfully give thanks for the gift of government, and thank the government for the gift of taxes. Bless my taxes, O God! Give me peace of mind as I rejoice in filling out forms and returning money to its rightful owner, the government. Keep me joyous, I pray, as I write out those checks. Yea, Lord, we know that there is little reason to be joyous with the failure of the healthcare collectivization rollout, but the thought of a new tax year still brings to us a swelling tear of joy. And whisper to me, Lord, all the good reasons that I send my money to my government every year.

Raise my awareness to the fact that I could not write this prayer, and would be a barely-functioning illiterate living in the gutter, if I had not received a free tax-subsidized education; my parents could not have afforded both my tuition and their own tax payments, so my tuition was supplied, at no expense to anyone, by the government. Remind me of how my mind has been so wondrously calibrated by our free public schools!

Gently show me that the Internet, through which I send this prayer to others, was created by committees of civil servants. Help me to recall that my freedom to pray as I wish was purchased with tax dollars that paid for dairy price supports. Quietly kiss me as you raise my awareness that the only deserving people, the most noble among us, are those who subsist on government programs — paid for with our taxes. My Lord my God, fondle me as you energize me with the hopefulness of higher taxes that can pay for an even more effective Internal Revenue service, which in turn can collect even more taxes for an even more effective Internal Revenue Service, which will culminate in an ecstatic spiral of an all-encompassing tax-collecting mechanism that will be accountable to no one except to the spirit of economic justice.

Reveal to me, Lord, in my mind’s eye, the public health workers, the regulators of the environment and of commerce, the employees of the Department of Energy, and the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Department of Education, and the Administration for Children and Families, and the Minerals Management Service, and the Rural Business-Cooperative Service, and the Minority Business Development Agency , and the Japan-United States Friendship Commission , and the Government National Mortgage Association, and the Housing and Urban Development Department, and the Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements, and the Institute of Peace, and the Bureau of International Labor Affairs, and the Tennessee Valley Authority, and the Small Business Administration, and the Superfund Basic Research Program , and the President’s Commission on Moon, Mars and Beyond, and the Office of Refugee Resettlement, and the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission , and the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee , and the Susquehanna River Basin Commission, and the Stennis Center for Public Service, and the Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation , and the Peace Corps, and the Office of Public and Indian Housing, and the President’s Council on Integrity and Efficiency, and the National Bipartisan Commission on the Future of Medicare, and the National Interagency Fire Center, and the Northwest Power Planning Council, and the Multifamily Housing Office , and the Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer, and especially the Internal Revenue Service, and all the other things that my taxes and your taxes make possible.

And please, Lord, remind my brothers and sisters that they should liquidate their savings accounts and mutual funds, bonds and CD’s, so that they too can be forced to turn it over to the greatest bargain of all that is Social Security. Educate me, Dear One, of how difficult life was for the sick and elderly before they paid throughout their entire careers, with threat of imprisonment, 14% of their wages for the iron-clad guarantees of Social Security. Please, Lord, make everyone realize that there is no investment more secure, and none that gives such a generous return, as Social Security.

Take me out of my selfishness and give me a spirit of gratitude as I write those tax checks! Remind me of my own virtue as I inform the IRS of cheaters. Inspire me to see that my sacred duty is to serve those who are unable to provide “value” to others, or are unwilling to provide anything for themselves. And that my highest calling is to ensure that others return whatever they have to the Government that You have created.

O Dear One, there are so many ways I wish my taxes could be spent! I’m willing, O Lord, to pay even more in taxes if it would work for the common good: We need a strong government to take back from the rich few and generously give to the many! Lord my God, please put the brakes on commerce, remove all profits from the pigs who “produced” it, and turn it all over to those who deserve it. So, more than ever, dear God, give me the strength and the vision to rise up and press my government to unapologetically take back what is ours. My sacred duty as a spokesperson for the working class can only be fulfilled if we organize, advocate, protest, resist, agitate, and speak truth to power by writing tax checks. I ask for your guidance, God, as I join with others to change the priorities and values of our government, so that they reflect more of our collective will, and my struggle, as expressed through your will.

Lord, you have created all men and women as equals. Any disparity from your plan is an affront to decency. And so I pray, my Dear Lord, that you fulfill your vision for true equality, and remove all excess. In service to you, my Lord, we will not rest until everyone is truly equal. Tax the rich. Sicken the healthy. Scar the beautiful. Destroy the “successful”. Drown the bankers. Blind the stock traders. Cripple the athletes and sever the hands of the musicians. Plant carnivorous bacteria in the brains of those who score high on racist “IQ” tests. Deliver wasting diseases to the strong. Starve and stone the executives and managers. Show no mercy to the blood-sucking merchants as they suffer merciless deaths in the searing flames of gargantuan infernos. Smash capitalism and deliver us, Dear One, to our deserved socialist paradise.

May your blessing rest on my Form 1040, dear Lord, and may my taxes well serve you and my fellow citizens! Amen.

Blessing of the Taxes 03

Tax the rich. Sicken the healthy. Scar the beautiful. Destroy the “successful”. Drown the bankers. Blind the stock traders. Cripple the athletes and sever the hands of the musicians.

Nanny State

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 20, 2013 by andelino

Nanny State 01People “immigrated” to America’s wide open spaces to “create” economic opportunity for themselves, “escape” religious persecution, and “live” a life they couldn’t possibly have “imagined” living in their homelands, a life of “freedom and opportunity.”

From sea to shining sea they “tamed” what once was harsh, unforgiving wilderness, “blazed” trails across dangerous land, “planted” stakes in the ground that “symbolized” that most precious of commodities, “land they could call their own.”

There they “built” cabins, then towns, then cities, then skyscrapers.

There they “created” the most liberty-based government known to man, a government that “encouraged” rugged individuals, acting in their “own” self-interest, to work “hard” in order to “prosper,” so that their “communities” also would prosper in kind.

As with all “good” things, it was not to “last” forever.

Human government has a “history” of running in cycles. Like the “rise” of the Roman Republic and the “birth” of America hundreds of years later, new forms of “self-government” are often born from man’s “yearning” for freedom.

After that initial birth, a “golden age” followed, with dramatic “increases” in inventions and prosperity. The golden age “may” last a couple hundred years, but it “inevitably” ends.

People begin to grow “complacent” and, generation by generation, more and more “decadent, lazy, and content.”

Instead of traditional “self-reliance,” they want the “government” to take care of them.

Instead of “freedom” they want “security.”

They want a Nanny State, and, unfortunately, there have “always” been those who enjoy “making” a comfortable living “giving” it to them.

Nanny State 02

Today’s Nannies want to “control” every aspect of our lives, and far too many are “willing” to let them.

Law by “law,” regulation by “regulation,” we are incrementally “losing” the freedoms that once “made” America great, the “self-reliance” that inspired the “greatest” inventors and captains of industry “mankind” has ever seen to take the “world” to places it has “never” gone before.

The Nanny State is the “opposite” of that freedom. It is “dependence.” It is “decadence.” It is “slavery.” And it’s not just America – it “is” worldwide.

The Nanny State “crushes” individuals, “stifles” entrepreneurship, and “creates” a culture where people “falsely” believe the government is “able” to protect them from “anything” that could possibly go wrong.

Nanny State 03

We must “break” the cycle! We must “resist,” and the first step in resistance is “making” the public aware.

That is why the  website was started.

They want to “shine” the spotlight on the “Nanny’s” at every level of government.

They want “report” their silly, inane, juvenile rules, and “mock” them for the world to see.

We live in a “Nanny” State, but it doesn’t have to be!

Nanny State 04

Slut Walk

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on September 11, 2012 by andelino

San Francisco hosted its First Annual Slut Walk in 2011. I was hoping that with the whole Sandra Fluke/Rush Limbaugh controversy, the Todd Akin brouhaha, and many delegates at the Democratic convention wearing “Sluts Vote” pins, that the Second Annual Slut Walk 2012 would be bigger, bolder and better than ever. Alas, it was not to be.

The low turnout is probably due to the still-rather-prominent but antiquated ideas of “morals” which are damaging to the well-being and longevity of the State.

Leave it to “freaking” San Francisco, where anything goes nowadays to come up with “Slut Walks.” I have no hope for the Democratic People’s Republic of California.

And of course, everyone knows it is absolutely OKAY to be a slutJust Ask Sandra Fluke!”

“Keep your government off my pussy” – but she promises to screw you through the government, by inducing all her “Johns” to vote for a system that would take care of her pussy by extracting your money and giving it to sluts. What a great example of People Logic!

Keep thinking these thoughts and don’t listen to those who may say this: “Whatever the government subsidizes, it also controls!”

Hit the Road, Barack

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , on August 20, 2012 by andelino

“Hit the Road, Barack – Why We Need a New President”

By Noel Sheppard  August 19, 2012,
After some of the recent Obama-loving/Romney-bashing Newsweek covers, the one hitting newsstands Monday is guaranteed to turn some heads. Under the picture of our dear leader are the words, Hit the Road, Barack: Why We Need a New Leader.”

The article is written by Niall Ferguson, a British historian and economist that backed John McCain in 2008. After an introduction, Ferguson made his case:

In his inaugural address, Obama promised “not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth.” He promised to “build the roads and bridges, the electric grids, and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together.” He promised to “restore science to its rightful place and wield technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality and lower its cost.” And he promised to “transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age.” Unfortunately the president’s scorecard on every single one of those bold pledges is pitiful.

He continued:

The total number of private-sector jobs is still 4.3 million below the January 2008 peak. Meanwhile, since 2008, a staggering 3.6 million Americans have been added to Social Security’s disability insurance program. This is one of many ways unemployment is being concealed.

In his fiscal year 2010 budget—the first he presented—the president envisaged growth of 3.2 percent in 2010, 4.0 percent in 2011, 4.6 percent in 2012. The actual numbers were 2.4 percent in 2010 and 1.8 percent in 2011; few forecasters now expect it to be much above 2.3 percent this year.

Unemployment was supposed to be 6 percent by now. It has averaged 8.2 percent this year so far. Meanwhile real median annual household income has dropped more than 5 percent since June 2009. Nearly 110 million individuals received a welfare benefit in 2011, mostly Medicaid or food stamps.

Welcome to Obama’s America: nearly half the population is not represented on a taxable return—almost exactly the same proportion that lives in a household where at least one member receives some type of government benefit. We are becoming the 50–50 nation—“half of us paying the taxes, the other half receiving the benefits.”

And all this despite a far bigger hike in the federal debt than we were promised. According to the 2010 budget, the debt in public hands was supposed to fall in relation to GDP from 67 percent in 2010 to less than 66 percent this year. If only. By the end of this year, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), it will reach 70 percent of GDP. These figures significantly understate the debt problem, however. The ratio that matters is debt to revenue. That number has leapt upward from 165 percent in 2008 to 262 percent this year, according to figures from the International Monetary Fund. Among developed economies, only Ireland and Spain have seen a bigger deterioration.

Ferguson also took aim at the media’s coverage of Obama:

Yet the public mistakes his administration’s astonishingly uninhibited use of political assassination for a coherent strategy. According to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism in London, the civilian proportion of drone casualties was 16 percent last year. Ask yourself how the liberal media would have behaved if George W. Bush had used drones this way. Yet somehow it is only ever Republican secretaries of state who are accused of committing “war crimes.”

Indeed. As we’ve seen in the past three and a half years, Obama can do virtually anything he wants and his media will either applaud or look the other away. That said, after spending the bulk of his lengthy piece chronicling the current White House resident’s missteps, Ferguson spoke glowingly about Paul Ryan:

He is one of only a handful of politicians in Washington who is truly sincere about addressing this country’s fiscal crisis….But one thing is clear. Ryan psyches Obama out. This has been apparent ever since the White House went on the offensive against Ryan in the spring of last year. And the reason he psyches him out is that, unlike Obama, Ryan has a plan—as opposed to a narrative—for this country.

The voters now face a stark choice. They can let Barack Obama’s rambling, solipsistic narrative continue until they find themselves living in some American version of Europe, with low growth, high unemployment, even higher debt—and real geopolitical decline.

Or they can opt for real change: the kind of change that will end four years of economic under performance, stop the terrifying accumulation of debt, and reestablish a secure fiscal foundation for American national security.

Kiss My Ass

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 9, 2012 by andelino

Definition of “Kiss My Ass Apartheid”.

An official Government segregation policy involving racial, political, legal and economic discrimination.

You can order your own “customized banner” and “bumper stickers” at Gaster’s Banner to let people know what you think about how the government has been such a great partner in your business.

Ray Gaster’s hope is that the banners and bumper stickers will pop up all over America, and on Election Day in November we can have a big bonfire and burn them in celebration of a new president.

Bill Clinton’s rage is still so great that even loyal allies are shocked by his patronizing attitude to Obama, and believe that he risks damaging his own reputation by his intransigence. A senior Democrat who worked for Clinton has revealed that he recently told friends Obama could “kiss my ass” in return for his support.

Ouch. These are mental images I can do without.

The Rich Don’t Make Us Poor

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , on August 8, 2012 by andelino

The Rich Don’t Make Us Poor
by Charles Kaupke

We’ve been hearing a lot lately about the need for the wealthy to “pay their fair share” so that the federal government can pay down its debts and continue to fund programs to provide basic human necessities for the poor, such as food, shelter, and prophylactics. Their argument is that the greedy rich have been stealing increasingly large percentages of the nation’s GDP, and have been hoarding their riches, rather than generously giving them to the federal government to be used for the common good.

The only solution is to increase taxes on the rich, so that instead of letting billionaires covetously hold onto (and thus waste) their excess wealth, which they don’t really need, the government can take that cash and use it much more effectively, to give the rest of us free stuff. After all, it just isn’t fair that some Americans control billions of dollars’ worth of wealth, while others struggle to make ends meet.

Sounds plausible, right? Of course it does. Unfortunately for those who make a living out of inciting class warfare, it’s not true. There are a number of errors embedded in the above explanation of our nation’s woes, but let’s cut to the central one: the fallacy that there always has been and always will be a fixed amount of wealth in the world, and that wealth is merely shifted back and forth among people, but it is never really increased. Economists call this the “fixed pie” fallacy.

This is not a new fallacy. In fact, it’s been around for almost as long as economics has been a science. Let’s look at one relatively recent example: in his 1912 work The Servile State, English historian Hilaire Belloc presents his case against capitalism, arguing that by its very nature it is immoral. Belloc – who was not an economist – has become especially popular among some Catholics who decry capitalism as being antagonistic to Christian social and political virtues, and who pine for the idyllic days of subsistence farming and feudal lords. For many of these people, The Servile State is their only exposure to economic thought. This is a shame, because Belloc is a prime example of someone who fell for the “fixed pie” fallacy.

Belloc defines capitalism as a “society in which private property in land and capital, that is, the ownership and therefore the control of the means of production, is confined to some number of free citizens not large enough to determine the social mass of the state, while the rest have not such property and are therefore proletarian.” The definition Belloc offers is a sign of a deeper mistake on his part: the belief that economics is a stagnant business. His definition of capitalism paints a picture of the wealthy few hiding their money in mattresses, while the rest of us languish with no hope of ever acquiring wealth or living well.

I suppose there could be instances of that happening, but they certainly won’t continue for any sustained period of time. Think about it – if the wealthy hoard their money and don’t do anything with it, how do they support themselves? You don’t live well by having money; you live well by using money. In order to use it, you have to give it to someone else in exchange for goods or services that they give to you. Entrepreneurs get wealthy by using their resources to provide others with jobs. This increases their own well-being, as well as the lives of those they hire; both employer and employee benefit by being part of a useful business from which they can make a living. So the idea that the wealthy are able both to hoard their money and to live well, even affluently, is absurd.

Historical reality bears out the fact that in capitalism, people become rich by putting what capital they have to good, productive use, and that anyone, no matter how poor they start out, can become wealthy. Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital, which leftists love to hate, and other venture capital groups risk their own money to provide small entrepreneurs with the means of jump-starting their companies, providing jobs both for those working in venture capital firms, and those employed by entrepreneurs.

Many famous entrepreneurs, such as Henry Ford, Sam Walton and James Cash Penney became fabulously wealthy not by hiding their money in a mattress, inheriting it, or cheating on their taxes, but by delaying gratification, providing workers with decent paying jobs, and putting in long hours for years, to build and maintain successful companies that serve their employees and their customers well. The historical reality of entrepreneurs gives the lie to two of Belloc’s assumptions: that the wealthy can maintain luxurious living standards by sitting on their wealth, and that capitalism prevents the poor from working their way up the economic ladder.

Sadly, it seems that many Americans, including the Occupy crowd and even our own President, are not aware of the unique and amazing power of entrepreneurship: the ability to use our resources and God-given talent to better the lives of those we work with and those we serve. Only when we as a nation remember that the phenomenon of money can be used in a dynamic way to participate as co-creators with God, will we begin to work our way out of the economic mess we are in.

Taxes Everywhere

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , on July 17, 2012 by andelino

The next time you hear a politician use the word “billion” in a casual manner, think about whether this is who you want spending your tax money.

A “billion” is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of its releases.

a. A “billion” seconds ago it was 1959.
b. A “billion” minutes ago Jesus was alive.
c. A “billion” hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
d. A “billion” days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
e. A “billion” dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate our “government” is spending it.

While this thought is still fresh in our brain, let’s take a look at what is happening with the “$85 billion” that we gave to AIG
The first week after receiving the bailout money, they spent $440,000 on a retreat at a luxurious California resort on your tax money. When is the last time you vacationed at a plus resort anywhere?

And though reports show that Congress is upset and looking for answers, today’s news story tells of AIG getting an additional “$37.8 Billion” to help it deal with a rapidly dwindling supply of cash. Is this amazing or what?

Washington, D.C. HELLO!!!… Obviously you are not looking out for our best interest. STOP GIVING AWAY OUR MONEY!!!!

This is too true to be very funny…

Tax his land,
Tax his wage,
Tax his bed in which he lays.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes are the rule.

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his ties,
Tax his shirts,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he tries to think.

Tax his booze,
Tax his beers,
If he cries,
Tax his tears.

Tax his bills,
Tax his gas,
Tax his notes,
Tax his cash.

Tax him good
and let him know
That after taxes, he has no dough.

If he hollers,
Tax him more,
Tax him until he’s good and sore.

Tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in which he lays.

Put these words upon his tomb,
“Taxes drove me to my doom!”

And when he’s gone,
We won’t relax,
We’ll still be after the inheritance TAX!!
