Communism is Good

18 09 2012

I thought I would never say such a thing but Communism is good.  There is a qualification though.

The American Communist flag

Are you ready for the dictatorship of the Federal Government?

Communism is good for a society that has lost its way, is doomed as a free society and needs to be under dictatorial leadership.  Communism is good for the people that have become immoral, lazy, indolent, shiftless, dishonest and depraved. The dictatorship of the bureaus is here and getting bigger as our lazy and immoral numbers swell in America.

A great many of the population of the United States of America has been seduced into worshiping “The Church of The Almighty Federal Government.”  Many of us are not independent, freedom loving truth seekers.  A very high percentage of the population has been led to believe that they deserve something from their fellowmen for absolutely nothing, they just deserve it.

The recent Occupy Wall Street movement demonstrated their desire for Socialism and Communism and to destroy Capitalism.  The end result would be that the government controls and owns everything.  Right now we are a quasi-socialist republic.  We are not governed by a limited Federal government with the states and individuals retaining most of the rights anymore.

Since the recent Supreme Court decision regarding Obamacare in which Justice John Roberts allowed the usurpation of the Federal to mandate to individuals anything the Federal wants, we are now under a dictatorship of the Federal.  We are no longer free by yet another degree.  Technically, the Federal can dictate to a free man that he has to eat broccoli or suffer consequence from Federal authorities.

My point here is that if we as a society were paying attention, loving our neighbors, serving the God of Righteousness, we would not be in this mess.  We have gotten lazy, expecting a dole, a handout, a free lunch, and something for nothing.  There is always a trade-off for something.  We have been seduced by the infomercials of wicked congressmen.  We got our free trial.  Now the recurring payments are attached to our lives and the bill is coming due.

Mitt Romney is right.  He will not get votes from many seduced by the Federal Freebie gravy train.

John Adams said:

“…Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.  It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”         A signer of the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and our second President.

Benjamin Franklin said:

“Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.  Whereas true religion and good morals are the only solid foundations of public liberty and happiness . . .” Continental Congress, 1778

And … “They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security.”

Dwight Eisenhower said:

“Every step we take towards making the State our Caretaker of our lives, by that much we move toward making the State our Master.”

My question is, do you really want to “Fundamentally transform the United States of America?”

Obama has hired Communists and Marxists all around him and was raised by Marxists and hung out with them in college.  They are his buddies.  Van Jones is the only Communist that I know of who was removed when it was shown clearly that he is a Communist.  Van Jones was apparently one of the founders of the organization called STORM.  This organization expressed extreme sadness at the fall of the Soviet Socialist Republic and that China was not as hardline Communist as in times past.  Hard to believe that we elected a president that hires Marxists and Communists?

If we are seduced enough as a people and become the land of the Freebie’s and Home of the Depraved, then we have no other choice than to have Communist masters.  The lie is that it is better.  If and when the transformation is complete, we will have the hammer lowered upon our liberty and the sickle sever the freedom from our bones.

Be free and in that freedom, choose righteousness which is the only true happiness.

May we save ourselves from our lesser selves and may God Bless America as we change our unrighteous ways.





What Will The Standard and Poor’s bond rating affect?

19 04 2011

Standard and Poor's outlook for US downgradedThe news from The Standard and Poor’s site is, “On April 18, 2011, Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services revised its outlook on its ‘AAA’ long-term sovereign credit rating on the government of the United States of America to negative.”

These are some of the items at stake in the USA: home values and the ability to buy and sell, credit card interest rates, business loans, pension or 401k values, checking or savings account values, life insurance long term values, annuities, college savings …. and so on and so on.

Ok, here’s the big news.  The Obama Administration and the folks in Congress are not stupid (well, most of them).  They are just political cowards or are intent on destroying the United States fundamental economy.  President Obama has said he wanted to fundamentally change the USA and is doing an effective job.

If anyone in Congress says what needs to be said, they are attacked as executioners of senior citizens and pre-school children.  Everyone wants the other guys golden egg.

On my previous post in 2009, I noted that the famous Julian Robertson’s words in 2008 that inflation could hit 15-20%.  Things have not improved since then and have gotten worse.

Depending on who’s doing the math, the US spent more than $400 billion in interest on the approximately $13 Trillion debt in 2010.  The  deficit spending was and still is out of control.  The interest rates paid are at historic lows.  The average interest rate paid on the debt was around 3%.  Most of that debt is short term treasury bills and those historic rates will not last.

Here is what will most likely happen. If the bond rating of US treasuries are downgraded by  Standard and Poor’s 6 months to 2 years from now, interest rates on new Treasury bills or bonds will skyrocket to around 8-12% within 3 months, no matter what Moody’s says.  The overnight bank to bank interest rate will skyrocket.  Rates on loans to businesses will shoot through the roof.  Loans to home purchasers will go sky high causing real estate prices to crash.  The ability of people to move or transfer will be severely hampered.  Those who are upside down on their homes will default and foreclosures will rise again.  The speed of all financial transactions will slow down as will economic growth.  Unemployment rates will go up and either hyper inflation or deflation will kick in full gear.  We could have another round of deflay-inflation, where real estate crashes and commodities prices inflate.

The ability of the USA to pay it’s bond obligations will not be able to be met.  Over a 4 year period the interest on the national debt will average 6-8%, depending on how high the downgrade interest rate on new bonds will be.

By that time, the national debt will be $20 Trillion at least.  But lets say for whatever reason, that the deficit gets reigned by January 2012  and caps out at $16 Trillion (very unlikely before a new election cycle).  If the average interest rate on the debt is 6% instead of 3% in 2010, the interest payment on the debt would be just $40 billion shy of $1 Trillion dollars per year.

Current folks in power are talking of slowing the growth of the debt over 10 years.  Six months to 2 years doesn’t allow for that luxury.  The solution is to radically cut or eliminate spending on all welfare programs including Medicaid/Medicare and Social Security.  The nation is not taking this seriously

Hang on for a wild ride because we are sitting on a time bomb.  The golden goose egg has been replaced with a rotten one about to explode.





Let The Whining Begin

12 10 2010

In the immortal words of Steve Martin ….Excuuuuuse Meee!

In the face of record national debt and deficit, the Obama Administration is doing a little something to stem the tide of red ink (barely a scratch but something is better than nothing). Social Security recipients will go through a second straight year without an increase in monthly benefits.

In an AP article, Paul McNeil a 69 year old retired state worker from Warwick, R.I. said, “I think it’s disgusting … They’ve got this idea that they’ve got to save money and basically they want to take it out of the people that will give them the least resistance.”

Puhh-leeeze! The senior crowd has been one of the loudest, obstinate and demanding voting blocks in the U.S. Whatever Grandma and Grandpa and AARP want, they fight hard for and in many cases they get what they want.

Does the existence of Medicare Prescription Drug Program ring a bell. How about Medicare itself. The list is long of abuses and freebies demanded by those who drive around in RV’s with a bumper sticker, “We’re Spending Our Kids Inheritance!” Ever see those bumper stickers?

HERE’S THE NEW AARP BUMPER STICKER!

 

We've Already Spent Our Children's Inheritance

The Bumper Sticker of AARP

 

Now, Don’t Get Me Wrong.  There are those lovable seniors who are also reasonable.  In the same article there were some honest and non greedy comments:

“I’m kind of glad in a way,” Stella Wehrly, an 86-year-old retired secretary, said of the freeze. “One thing depends on the other and when people aren’t working there’s not enough people feeding into the Social Security system.”  We have a generation now that we’re not going to leave a very good legacy for,” she said.

My beloved grandmothers are gone but I’d like to adopt her as my new favorite.





Illegal Alien Population and Crime Drops in Arizona

26 09 2010

One of the reasons I and my family left Phoenix was the refusal of the mayors, councilmen and women, county supervisors and governors to enforce the law on the books.  Our daughter in first and second grade was a minority.  80-90% of her classmates were illegal aliens.  That destroyed that school district.  So much time and money was being spent on the situation that our daughter was an after thought.

Another example.  My wife was driving our car.  I was in the passenger side and our baby in the back seat.  The light turn green and my wife pulled into the intersection.  We didn’t see the other driver running the red light.  Our lives were in slow motion as the drivers side near the front wheel was rammed with stunning force.  The sound was horrific and the action freeze framed as the terror shot through all of us.  My first thought after gasping for air was, “Dear God, I hope my wife and my baby are alright!”

The car was rammed so hard that we were spun almost 180 degrees around and our front wheels landed on the sidewalk.  I checked on my wife and the checked our baby who thankfully was buckled in correctly.  I took her out and tried to calm her. We all were miraculously unharmed.  For a while afterward our baby would scream when we took her in the car.  If our car had been 2 or 3 feet further into the intersection my wife would have been seriously injured or killed.

The driver of the offending vehicle didn’t speak English.  When I tried asking for insurance information a numb and dumbfounded look was all I got in return.  When the police officers arrived at the scene they shared with me that the driver was an illegal alien and the only identification he had was a Mexico student ID.  They had no drivers license, current address information or insurance documentation.  The car registration had expired and was registered to someone else.

I asked the officer what they could do about the situation.  They informed me that there was nothing that they could do.

I got the information of the registration and went to the address listed with a friend of mine that was fluent in Spanish.  Even though someone was there they refused to answer.  The information that had been given to the police was bogus and any attempt I made with the police or detectives was met with a yawn or “Sorry, there’s nothing we can do.  It happens all the time.”

Our car didn’t survive the wreck.  The insurance adjuster determined the costs to repair the car were more than it was worth.  I lost my deductible, my insurance rates went up, lost time off of work and no one could do anything because there was no will so there was no way.

Of course this was before the current law was passed in Arizona.  Previously many of our leaders were simply unwilling to uphold the laws of the land for selfish political reasons.

I support the State of Arizona’s law to UPHOLD THE LAW.  Those who do not support upholding the law are aiding and abetting criminals and promoting injustice. The Fed for too long has simply turned a blind eye and been derelict in their duties.

Read this article and watch the newscast and tell me what you think about enforcing the law.

Sheriff Joe has always been on the right side of this issue.  He’s kicking himself that he endorsed Janet ‘Roll Over And Play Dead’ Napolotalo for Governor who is now the lapdog Secretary of Homeland Insecurity for the Obama Negligent Homicide Administration.  It seems as the Secretary all she is capable of doing is taking dictation from our Slanderer in Chief.





The Balance of Power

21 09 2010

The Forgotten Man is a new painting.  The video below is powerful and surprising.

The balance of power has been disrupted.  The balance is to provide the most freedom to the Republic as possible.  The disruption is by design to create an all powerful Federal Government.  There are those who want the Federal to be the God of the land instead of the Christian Nation that it is.  Woe be unto those who pervert the right ways of the Lord!

Lucky Number 13?

10 06 2010

What’s the deal with 13?  Some people think it’s a bad number.  It’s just a number.  There was even a Thirteen Club started in the 1800’s to dispel superstition.

Well, we are at a unique time in history and the number 13 is a pivot point.

The United States National Debt is over $13 Trillion now.  I hope the Sleeper has awakened.

The National Debt and the out of control spending are leading our country to economic devastation.  At this rate we will be semi-defunct like Greece very soon.  Unfortunately, we won’t have the EU to bail us out.  No one will be able to bail the US out.

As reported in Bloomberg news, the United States National Debt will exceed our Gross Domestic Product in 2012.

The US currently receives the highest rating for its Treasury Bonds.  As soon as that rating drops you will see interest rates go through the roof.  Calculations of when that will happen is between 2013 and 2018.  If the debt goes up as fast as it is now look for 2013 to be the tipping point.

A Reuters news story on June 8th stated that according to a Treasury Department report to Congress, the National debt will reach $19.6 Trillion by 2015.  If that becomes true, the interest on the debt at only 4% would be almost 800 Billion.  Say for example we have to sell the bonds at a higher rate, say 6%, the interest rate payment will be almost 1.2 Trillion per year.

We are at the tipping point right now.  We need to eliminate the debt not add to it.

Below is the list of our Senators vote to raise the debt ceiling to 14.3 Trillion.  It’s simply raising the line of credit to ourselves.  Those who voted for it are the YEA’s and those against of the NAY’s

Not Voting – 1
Enzi (R-WY)

The vote was down party lines this time but when Republicans were in power they were not responsible spenders either.  There must be a moratorium on the deficit then gradually eliminate the debt.  Let’s have Congress pass a law that the national debt ceiling is lowered to $13 Trillion and gradually lower it at least 5% each year after that.  Lots of sacred cows will have to be slaughtered and there will be citizens complaining but if we are to survive surgery is required.

13 is a great number.  It is the number of colonies that joined to form the United States and the original number of stars on the US flag.  In the Great Seal of the United States there are: 13 olive leaves (with 13 olives), 13 arrows, and 13 stars, all forming a triangle over the eagle with the number 13 on each point.  On the pyramid there are 13 levels.

The Apollo 13 mission failed, but is one of the most inspiring space adventures in history.  All three astronauts returned safely to Earth.  I recommend the movie of the same name.

13 Trillion can be a turning point for America,  We can return safely to sound economics, yes we can, but not with the current spending intoxication.





Obama May Declare Carbon Di-Oxide a Dangerous Pollutant

7 12 2009

The Truth Be Damned – Full Speed Ahead!

That seems to be what the Obama administration is doing regarding Global Warming.  After the recent fraudulent cooking of the Global Warming Books, the EPA acting under the guidance of President Obama may declare Carbon Di-Oxide a dangerous pollutant and start self creating rules and regulations on businesses in the US.

A big ship like the US Government needs a leader that has the ability to take decisive and correct action.  Ignore the warnings and you’ll get Titanic results.

The warnings of the Global Warming scam have been raised and yet the Obama administration seems to be blind to the fact of questionable data, lying scientists, deceitful profiteers in the name of saving our planet.  What’s new?

What’s old is the seeming willful ignoring of valid facts that we’ve been systematically lied to for a long time about Global Warming.

Note to Obama Administration, “When you’re headed for a cliff DO NOT “Put the pedal to the metal”.

If Obama allows the EPA to declare Carbon Di-Oxide a dangerous pollutant, he might as well go out and buy a big red nose, a big multi-colored rainbow wig, big floppy shoes and join Barnum and Baily’s Big Top.
