Conservative Blogger Becomes Target of Liberal Web Site

Bookmark and Share    Yours truly recently became the target of a liberal propaganda web site by the name of DemocraticUnderground.com.
 
DemocraticUnderground.comThey took offense to a quote that I have written and taken on as a mantra ever since the day that radical jihadists brought Islamic terrorism to our shores and killed more than three thousand Americans in a matter of hours on the eleventh of September, 2001.

The quote in question reads as follows:

“May God Bless America and provide us with the strength and perseverance necessary to thwart and eliminate the hidden cowards who threaten all that is precious to us.”

This quite innocent, personally held, sentiment has led to a flurry of activity on DemocraticUnderground.com which has in turn led to near unprecedented levels of traffic to POLITICS 24/7 where the quote was seen by liberal eyes.

So offended were the senses of the liberal statists that one even wished for my being killed.

The statement helps to prove my long held assertion that liberals and today’s Democrat Party are a hypocrisy basedLiberalHate collection of political retards with little ability to deal with reality and no sense of ethics, morals or responsibility.

The left which tries its best to carry the mantle of tolerance is  in truth the most intolerant lot of people that can be found in this hemisphere.  These are the same people who praise strong women and promote their breaking of any perceived glass ceilings, but only if they are liberal women. If they are a strong conservative woman, they are shunned, attacked and ridiculed by the very same people who would seek to castrate others who would dare do the same to a liberal woman.

These are the same people who seemingly stand full force for the advancement of people of color but only if they are people of color with liberal allegiances and beliefs. To them, a person of color who is conservative is an Uncle Tom and traitor.

Yes liberals have come a long in proving their lack of sincerity and abundantly hypocritical thinking and policies. Such was made even more evident by wishes for my death because I hope that divine powers help us to help ourselves defend against the disguised faces of terrorism.

Regarding that quote, some on this cesspool of asininities known as Democratic Underground stated “wtf? Who does he think these people are and where does he think they are hiding?

That statement received ringing endorsements of support from virtually all who sough to denigrate me for my concerns and beliefs.

That statement and the liberal reaction to it are clear examples of the left’s inability to accept the reality of the world we live in. They seek to ridicule those who take seriously the threats of terrorism. They seek to discount the facts that led to carnage, mayhem and death on 9/11.

It is obvious from the questioning rebuttals on Democratic Underground, that the base of the Democrat Party, does not understand that terrorists rely on the essential element of surprise and that they do not publicly identify themselves as threats to our lives. Instead the left chuckles at the notion that we have enemies. Instead they seek to make fellow Americans out to be the enemy.

A look at the message board on Democratic Underground dealing with the quote of topic in my blog, showed an endless stream of profanity and ridicule. Many consider me tobe  insane and out of touch. Others referred to me as “a pretty boy”.

None of this offends me. It comes from strangers who I do know, but whom through  through their demonstrated ignorance and non-existent civility, I do know I do not respect.

Beyond that though, I do appreciate what these moronic, hypocritical buffoons did.

Their deep rooted hatred, bigotry and ignorance allowed them to put in writing the evidence that substantiates all my beliefs and assertions about the pointlessness, hypocrisy, irresponsibility and detachment from reality that is the base of the contemporary Democrat Party.

The fact is, I greatly appreciated their immature antics and evident trashiness. Not only did it drive a great deal of traffic to my site, it also was an honor of sorts. I am honored to be a target of the socialist left of American politics. Winston Churchill once asked “You have enemies?” When the respondent said “Yes, I do” the statesman, often referred to as the British Bulldog, replied “Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.”

I do stand up for things in my life.  things like the rule of law and freedom.  Things like out national soverignty and the principles which founded our country.  And God willing, I always will. I will even stand up for the right of those on the left to state their opinions and prove me right about them all the time.

IS GOING GALT THE ANSWER TO OBAMA’S POLICIES?

Bookmark and Share    I understand that some national policies are  moving us  towards socialism and is  removing incentive from our society.  I realize that rewarding mediocrity is something that, in the long run, benefits no one. But what I did not realize is that there exists a protest movement that is going with the government flow and accepting medicrioty as a means to teach government a lesson.  The movement is accepting the results of national policies and reducing their high levels of productivity which are being penalized more than rewarded.

atlas_02It is called Going Galt.

It stems from a classic American novel written by Ayn Rand called Atlas Shrugged. Although written in 1954, the book is as timely as ever.

It is a story about an America where the innovators and creators in our society have disappeared and we lose those of great talent and abilities. It is a theoretical description of the result of our loss of individuality and our market economy. In the book, the government is the oppressive bureaucracy that stifles success and rewards mediocrity. Government is the looter and it reflects the philosophy of socialism. Instead of rewarding success, government penalizes it.

As a result, a character in the book, named John Galt, covertly leads a movement to withdraw the most talented and innovative from the free market engine of the world economy. Galt leads those, who refuse to be exploited by looting governments, on a crusade that denies the looters any booty to loot.

Prompted by the government’s taking incentives out of success and innovation in order to spread the wealth, those who fuel our economy withdraw and government eventually loses its source of wealth and its means to sustain itself and the people it tries to spread wealth to.

That is the premise behind Going Gault.

One web site writes that “Going Galt is dropping out. Closing a business, leaving your job or just working to survive.”

This, in essence cuts off the funding source of government, otherwise known as the looters.

Without having your endless productivity to tax, the government will have nothing to loot and eventually the socialist desire to spread wealth is killed off by there being no wealth to spread.

Since we are becoming a society that increasingly punishes success and productivity many feel it is time for those who make the money and pay the taxes to take it easy, live on less and let the government looters try to spread wealth with very little available wealth.

Current economic policy directions are making the Going Galt  movement more and more prevalent. After all, rally07President Obama ran and won on a platform that promised to take money from those who are productive and redistribute it to those who are not as productive or successful. So where is the incentive to be so productive? Where is the desire to earn more if that only means that more will be taken from you. 

This leads us to a modern day version of Atlas Shrugged.

Imagine the local supermarket whose owner has more money taken away from them for having a good business. Now imagine that supermarket owner closing his store and putting a sign up on the door that says “Going Galt”. Imagine that sign hanging on those closed doors for three or four days a week.

Under the current system of penalizing success, the store owner may end up with the same amount of money in his own pocket after selling less product than he could have made for selling more products.

Of course the government will also yield less from that store owner and will have less wealth to hand out to the employees of that store who will already be losing out on three or four days of employment and salary.

It’s a vicious cycle that creates a downward spiral  prompted by socialist policies which can’t sustain themselves and certainly cannot sustain our government. It is also the impetus behind Going Galt.

Some ways to Go Galt include stop investing. Capital gains taxes remove your profits and enable the government to continue and expand socialist policies. So dry up the source of the financing of those policies. Stop investing.

HowToGoGalt.com also suggests that you “Visit your local school board, or send a letter asking the economics department to teach free market capitalism. A great book to suggest is Thomas Sowell’s Basic Economics. I would also suggest donating Atlas Shrugged, The Fountainhead, A Man In Full and other good books to your local school library. Put the pinch on local looters by voting down new tax levies, and supporting groups that fight new taxes. On the other hand it’s a good time to support vocational education and two year technical colleges. Stop giving money to your college alma mater. Just about every college embraces a socialist ideology.”

Going Galt is not a positive thing to have to do, it is really a last resort. But with the way things are going, many in society feel that we are that point.

After seeing some Republicans equivocate on fiscal issues and after witnessing Democrats adopt socialism, many feel that Going Galt,  breaking the government wealth distribution system and proving the point, is the only way to bring about change that is meaningful.

Going Galt  may actually be the change that we need in order to really give us hope again.

So the next time  a tax is raised, a new government program is created and a new private sector company is taken over by the federal government, send a message, Go Galt and let liberals begin to understand just how unsustainable socialism really is.

BECAUSE DEMOCRATS HAVE ADOPTED SOCIALISM?

Bookmark and Share   Norman Mattoon Thomas believed in socialism. He had no evil intentions and he had no desire for government control. He just wanted life to be better for everyone. He just wanted to spread the wealth and did not trust free markets. But the only way for government to foster his hope to spread the wealth thomas-button-awas through government control and because of that, few remember N. M. Thomas.

Before becoming a socialist politician, Mr. Thomas was a Presbyterian pastor and a pacifist. And while he opposed our entry into World War II he also opposed communism and fascism but his greatest opposition was to the American economic system.

But such beliefs never got Norman Matoon Thomas very far.

The height of his political career was achieved after the death of Socialist Party leader Eugene Debs in 1926. Upon Debs death Thomas took the helm and ran the Socialist Party until 1955 when he stepped down from his leadership post but continued to be the Socialist Party’s most visible spokesman.

Along the way, Thomas did run for Governor of New York, twice, but lost. In between those unsuccessful runs for office he ran for President of the United States as the socialist candidate in 1928, 1932, 1936, 1940, 1944 and 1948. Each time he lost resoundingly.

The closest he ever came was in 1944 when he maxed out with no electoral votes and 880,000 votes from the general electorate.

In each of his elections and throughout his leadership of the Socialist Party, he failed to convince a preponderance of Americans that socialism was the way to go and in what was probably his most famous speech, at the conclusion of one of his last bids for elected office, Thomas said “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of “liberalism”, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Well ladies and gentleman that day is right ahead of us.

Right now we are witnessing the rapid transformation to that day and place. The place where ingenuity, entrepreneurial spirit and motivation is replaced by government bureaucracy. Where the food on the table is not earned by you or selected by you, but is placed there by a government that will increase in it’s size and power. A government that will increase its control upon us.

As Thomas made clear through his words, governmental liberalism is a political philosophy that is essentially basedthomas_norman-a in the very roots of socialism. And as a liberal thinker, President Obama has shown that to be true.

During his campaign for President he came right out and said that he wants to spread the wealth.

To many, that sounded good. It sounded sincere and defendable. Yet the problem is that the wealth President Obama wants to spread is not his. It is our ours. As President, he has no government wealth to spread. Our government is only as wealthy as our people and if they are not making money, the government isn’t making any money. This is a lesson that many nations have already learned and apparently, it is one that we will have to learn again.

I for one believe as Margaret Thatcher did when she said “the problem with socialism is that you run out of everyone else’s money.”

I for one do not believe in the socialism that America has rejected for so long, during and after the life of Norman Mattoon Thomas. I just do not believe that Socialism can sustain itself in any way that allows our nation to benefit from the freedom that it is suppose to be a bastion of.

And just as much as I do not believe in Socialism, I equally believe that most Americans don’t either.

I believe as Norman Thomas did. That most “American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of “liberalism”, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program”

Such is the case today.

We are witnessing a conversion of our democracy to socialism that will take years to undo all because we elected a socialist who got away by calling himself  a Democrat.

In that same speech, Norman Thomas went on to say “I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.”

That was said 65 years ago yet today, it rings truer than ever.

The question is, when will Americans wake up and realize what Norman Mantoon Thomas realized. That political liberalism is socialism and when will they realize that socialism is futile.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF GOVERNMENT

 

Socialism: You have two cows. You keep one and give one to your neighbor.

Communism: You have two cows. The government takes them both and provides you with milk.

Fascism: You have two cows. The government takes them and sells you the milk.

Bureaucracy: You have two cows. The government takes them both, shoots one, milks the other, pays you for the milk, and then pours it down the drain.

Capitalism: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.

Democracy: You have two cows. Government taxes force you to sell them in order to support a man in a foreign country who has only one cow which was a gift from your government.

NEW SIGN FOR STIMULUS PACKAGE IS A SIGN OF THE TIMES

Bookmark and Share    It was revealed the other day that sign makers were to become the most immediate beneficiaries of the recent historic stimulus package.
aara_logo_21

Unbeknownst to anyone who read through the thousands of pages tin he stimulus bill, the White House initiated the creation of a new emblem.

 

According to the President “We’re making it easier for Americans to see what projects are being funded with their money as part of our recovery. So in the weeks to come, the signs denoting these projects are going to bear the new emblem of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act,” Obama said. “These emblems are symbols of our commitment to you, the American people — a commitment to investing your tax dollars wisely, to put Americans to work doing the work that needs to be done. So when you see them on projects that your tax dollars made possible, let it be a reminder that our government — your government — is doing its part to put the economy back on the road of recovery.”

 

Think of it as the tag on a Christmas present designating who the gift is from. You.

 

There is no word as to how much the new symbol costs to make and how much it will cost to reproduce and display on the countless required projects expected of it.
But who cares?
Whatever the amount is, it is an amount that is insignificant compared to the spending legislated in the bill.

 

The new emblem representing the “spread the wealth” legislation is quite symbolic. The creation of the emblem is quite symbolic of how the stimulus package will work.

The stimulus package generates work provided by the government and once that work is completed, where will more work come from? Under this stimulus package the only assured way for their to be more work is by making government create it. That means more government spending.

Now never mind the fact that all this spending is not helping the deficit which the left has made one of the top issues to use against Republicans. Never mind the fact that the stimulus package does little to free up lending in the free market and does little to boost free enterprise in America. All of that is not suppose to matter because government spending is creating government jobs. But the problem is that government jobs do not sustain themselves, private sector jobs do.

The problem is that although sign makers with the right government contract will make money from the creation of the new emblem for the stimulus package but what will they do when all those signs have been made?ussa1

The free market will not be expanded by the growth of government and the work for more signs will not be increasing, unless of course it is for more government projects.

So this new emblem for projects funded by the new stimulus package is quite a good representation of all that the so called recovery act represents. It represents a short term action that will cost us more than it is worth in the long run. It represents an increase in government control and a decrease in the expansion of opportunity and the free markets that built America.

A much more accurate symbol for the stimulus package which I call the American Economic Socialization package would be the old hammer and sickle.

A socialist, a capitalist and a communist agreed to meet.

The socialist was late.

“Excuse me for being late, I was standing in a queue for sausages.”

“And what is a queue?” the capitalist asked.

“And what is a sausage?” the communist asked.
