According to our Saviour, 50% of our population doesn’t even have a high school diploma… oh really! Okay fine, even if they have a high school diploma the average American is barely literate. So anyway… our Savior wants to throw more money at education because we are all so dumb. And the jobs of the future require intellectual capital rather than strength and hard work. So to force people to learn, we need to throw money at the situation. Money solves all problems in the United States. Similar to his repeal of the laws of economics, Obama now has waived his magic wand and now everyone will go to school with the goal of learning everything they can… Why? Because more money solves the problem. More money means teachers get more money. And if teachers get more money, then naturally they will be able to entice students to learn. I am not sure how paying teachers more money will suddenly cause unmotivated disinterested students to want to learn, but that’s a minor detail. The mere fact that teachers get paid more means teachers will somehow change 40 years of declining interest by our citizenry in education. Hmmmm… are you asking yourself the same question I am? If so, then you probably are not part of those 50% of the American citizenry who do not have a high school education… BUT, you might be a teacher. Need I say more?

Jobs are sorta like “Lucky Charms”….
If I take Obama at face value jobs are like finding “lucky charms”. Jobs are “magically delicious” and they just appear out of nowhere… in fact the government can mandate JOBS!… Hell if we are mandating things, I want to mandate that I am a “Rockstar”… you know… like Nickelback’s song. I want to be a rockstar driving 15 cars, hilltop house… bleached blonde bimbos and drug dealers on speed dial. Why NOT? I have needs!!! I really don’t want to work. I just want to have fun… surely some rich fat cat can spare a few dollars to pay for play. And while all those fat cats are paying for my playtime, I also need healthcare too. No problem right… some nebulous fat cat will pay for it… beside I don’t even know a rich fat cat. So I don’t care if they bust their ass and Obama confiscates their wealth… I too deserve a fat cat lifestyle. Plus, those fat cats stole money from me… if they hadn’t made all that money, I would have gotten part of it. I am not exactly sure how I would have gotten the money they stole from me, but those are the mysteries of economics for which the laws no longer apply in the United States. Nope… in the United States if you want something, it just magically appears. No longer do I have to work long hours and save money to get what I want… NOPE, the laws of economics have been repealed by our Savior Obama. Thank God for Obama, I am exhausted from building a company that employs 10 people and pays taxes, FICA, FEACAL and all those other crazy government FEES. NOPE, those days are gone. Nowadays, everything is a lucky charm and it magically appears whenever I want it… afterall, I am a good guy. I deserve stuff… I earned stuff simply by being born in the United States. YEP, just being born now entitles me to a lifestyle that my parents couldn’t even dream of… FINALLY, the law of economics have been repealed. And the added benefits of the repeal is that I no longer have to be responsible for anything… no longer will I have to experience adversity in my life. WOW… can you say LUCKY CHARMS
Another day… another bailout… can bankruptcy be far behind?
Clearly, we are in a downward spiral economically. And while statistically we are no where near the levels of unemployment of the Great Depression or the astronomical level of interest rates that Americans experienced under Carter; nevertheless, we are in serious trouble. Not because the real economy is collapsing, but rather because our government led by Obama, Pelosi and Reid are talking the economy into a death spiral. Why? Because as we all know they want to spend money on pet projects and they are using this so-called crisis as a cloak to hide their true intentions. Of course, that is not widely reported in the media as it doesn’t fit the political leanings of most Reporter types. Eventually, if everyone continues to talk in terms of depression, grim job prospsects, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. And while I think we need the truth about the economy, the problem is that we are not getting the truth. The Stimulus bill will not accomplish its intended goals. Instead, I am concerned that the primary outcome is to heap uon my children debt bomb beyond our comprehension. Even today, we are being misled about the actual Federal debt. For the uninformed… the real debt of the Federal government is approaching 55 trillion when you consider the Social Security IOU. What are we going to do I ask? Mathematically it is impossible to pay off these mounting debt bombs without destroying the American standard of living. It simply blows my mind that people would rather heap monstrous debt on their children rather than suck it up and deal head-on with economic downturn. My opinion may sound silly or foolish, but I believe Obama, Pelosi and Reid are going to bankrupt the United States.
Sadly I sit back and observe those around me and it is clear most American’s believe that our capitlistic system is a “zero sum” game. If I win, they lose. That is… if I acquire wealth, then I must have stolen it somehow from someone else. For the record, I challenge anyone to prove our capitalistic economy is a “zero sum” game. In reality our economy is an additive game. If you win, I win… we all win. Prove me wrong… I dare anyone who reads this blog to prove that our economy is a “zero sum” game… requiring winners and losers. If we are a “zero sum” economy, winners would steal from losers to acquire wealth. PLEASE!!! This is a total falsehood. Again… I cast out into the ethernet the challenge to prove “zero sum”
Bill Maher… could the man be any more ill-informed?
Seriously, Bill Maher babbles incessantly about politics and religion as if he knows the so-called “truth”. The man simply and fraudelantly makes up stuff and passes it off as fact. For him to say on Larry King the other night, that Obama is genuine and a “man of the people” is laughable. Regardless of what I think of the Obama, the man is an elitist, and has never spent a day in his life facing the hardships that most Americans have endured. He has always had the best schools, the best surroundings and the best opportunities. Obama is many things, but he is NOT a man of the people. Having said this, Bill Maher cannot seriously think he is an informed person. But regardless the problem I have with Bill Maher is that he passes as fact… his personal opinions. And in doing so, he poisons the ill-informed masses who cannot discern reality and truth for themselves. The political elitist pin-heads from Hollyweird are becoming more dangerous than Bin Laden. They are poisoning our children with bogus facts and complete nonsense. They just say things… without regard to facts or reality. It is just appalling and sickening. While I believe in everyone’s right to free speech, I don’t agree that people can simply say anything and not be challenged. These people are dangerous because they know not what they are talking. I pray that somehow some way the lies and egregious distortions can be challenged and shown for what they are: personal opinions completely devoid of fact. And Bill Maher would be my first target to challenge his so-called command of facts on politics and religion. The man is a “train wreck full of absurdity”.
America Needs Another Revolution…
It’s now time for all partriotic Americans to stand up and speak out against the growing tyranny of government. I suppose this sounds ridiculous in this day and time, but when I see what is happening in my Country I shudder. Government has never and will never be the solution to any problem in our lives. Yet each passing day, more and more people look first to the government to solve their problems. What they don’t realize is that they are hastening the cataclysmic change in the future of the United States. We are truly on the verge of a revolution. It will not be a revolution in terms of insurrection in the streets. It will be a revolution of the people who work in America to make a living… staging a quiet “Boston Tea Party”… Americans will vote with their tax dollars… or lack there of. Americans will find ways to bypass the taxation without representation taking place in this Country. Congress has finally detached itself from representing the people and now has decided IT knows best. Congress actually believes it has the wisdom to manage our economy, our healthcare, our airwaves, our pension, and future. The time has come to speak out against the moral, ethical and intellectual bankruptcy in Washington. And WE must all now begin to find ways to evade and avoid paying taxes. This is the only way we can stop Congress. If they don’t have money, they can’t pay for pork… and the while that has never stopped them before, the United States I dare say is going to become a debtor nation where the world no longer believes it can pay its bills. By all Americans evading and avoiding paying taxes we can hasten the collapse and hasten the removal Congress and the President. Time is critical, but we are slowly moving towards anarchy as more and more people decide enough is enough. We cannot allow pin-head elitists to destroy our treasured way of life… and that is exactly what is happening. The guarantees written into the Bill of Rights giving all American’s the right to pursue life, liberty and happiness has been replaced by creeping socialism. So now is the time to start imagining how we are going to starve government of taxes and force a crisis in borrowing. I wish you godspeed in your journey to rebel against the outrageous happenings in Washington.
How far we have fallen…
Below is a transcript of a speech made by George Patton to his troops during WWII: Today… Patton would be in exile if these words were spoken to our troops, but men like Patton inspire others to go beyond the “call of duty”… the politically correct tripe required of our leaders today, make me sick. Patton’s words:
Now, I want you to remember that no bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country.
Men, all this stuff you’ve heard about America not wanting to fight, wanting to stay out of the war, is a lot of horse dung. Americans, traditionally, love to fight. All real Americans love the sting of battle.
When you were kids, you all admired the champion marble shooter, the fastest runner, the big league ball players, the toughest boxers. Americans love a winner and will not tolerate a loser. Americans play to win all the time. Now, I wouldn’t give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That’s why Americans have never lost and will never lose a war. Because the very thought of losing is hateful to Americans.
Now, an army is a team. It lives, eats, sleeps, fights as a team. This individuality stuff is a bunch of crap. The bilious bastards who wrote that stuff about individuality for the Saturday Evening Post don’t know anything more about real battle than they do about fornicating.
Now, we have the finest food and equipment, the best spirit, and the best men in the world. You know, by God, I actually pity those poor bastards we’re going up against. By God, I do. We’re not just going to shoot the bastards. We’re going to cut out their living guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks. We’re going to murder those lousy Hun bastards by the bushel.
Now, some of you boys, I know, are wondering whether or not you’ll chicken-out under fire. Don’t worry about it. I can assure you that you will all do your duty. The Nazis are the enemy. Wade into them. Spill their blood. Shoot them in the belly. When you put your hand into a bunch of goo that a moment before was your best friend’s face, you’ll know what to do.
Now there’s another thing I want you to remember. I don’t want to get any messages saying that we are holding our position. We’re not holding anything. Let the Hun do that. We are advancing constantly and we’re not interested in holding onto anything — except the enemy. We’re going to hold onto him by the nose, and we’re gonna kick him in the ass. We’re gonna kick the hell out of him all the time, and we’re gonna go through him like crap through a goose!
Now, there’s one thing that you men will be able to say when you get back home, and you may thank God for it. Thirty years from now when you’re sitting around your fireside with your grandson on your knee, and he asks you, “What did you do in the great World War II?” — you won’t have to say, “Well, I shoveled shit in Louisiana.”
Alright now you sons-of-bitches, you know how I feel.
Oh, I will be proud to lead you wonderful guys into battle anytime, anywhere.
