Misnomer of the Day

 Jobless recovery actually means no recovery at all. It’s a liberal cliché which means wishful thinking perpetrated by a desperate government clutching an irrational impossibility. Immaculate Conception stands a better chance of coming to fruition than a jobless recovery. I heard a sound bite from Christina Romer spouting off at Berkleyabout an economic recovery that is both jobless and growth less, which of course makes her clueless. Is it any wonder she was appointed by Obama as an economic adviser? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jU_9pUljKEk

 Job creation is directly related to production in the private sector. Production equals wealth creation, herein lays the key to economic recovery. Remember, government doesn’t create anything except bureaucracy. Government doesn’t create wealth; it squanders it, misallocating resources from the private sector, redistributing them to the public sector.

 These Keynesian dunderheads continue to pursue a policy of flooding the market with fiat currency in the failed hope of bolstering the economy without the actuation of job or wealth creation. This is the aberration they call a jobless recovery. Go figure.              The Anecdotal Objectivist

Misnomer of the Day

With so much brew-ha-ha over the debt ceiling negotiations, the most trotted out misnomer is: Compromise, which actually means Capitulation for all those opposed to the leftist politicians.

 They want the republicans and the tea-party to capitulate to their wonton fiscal desires’ of endless cash for every government discrepancy they deem relevant. They pout bitterly as they trod out their “Compromise” bromide again and again, trying to convince the unwitting amongst us that 2.5 trillion dollars is a trifle, and they can solve all our fiscal woes if they just had more of the taxpayers dollars. They have employed intimidation, threats, and fear mongering to get their way and when those devises failed they point at the conservatives and wail, “Compromise”. Remember, one can’t compromise with evil; one can’t compromise with what is morally corrupt. Compromise means swallowing the poison incrementally; the inevitable outcome of this practice is still death.

 These paragons of pragmatism want cash. 2.5 TRILLION, and they want it now, damn the national debt, damn the failure of Keynesian economics, damn those who oppose them as they bankrupt the nation while lining their pockets with loot. They need this money to once again pay off their constituencies buying votes with someone else’s wealth so they can stay in power for yet another election cycle, because government power is legalized corruption, enslaving the private sector, while plundering the masses.

 These Marxists Socialists are addicted to taxpayer’s money. They remind me of a junkie, pleading with god, promising to go straight and amend their ways if god would grant them just one more fix. Problem is; this fix costs 2.5 trillion, and these leftists are far more dangerous than junkies. But the cure is all the same: Cold Turkey.  Pod Cast <a href="http://www.divshare.com/flash/audio_embed?data=YTo2OntzOjU6ImFwaUlkIjtpOjQ7czo2OiJmaWxlSWQiO2k6MTU0MzQ5MTg7czo0OiJjb2RlIjtzOjEyOiIxNTQzNDkxOC1mMGEiO3M6NjoidXNlcklkIjtpOjE5Mzc5NzM7czoxMjoiZXh0ZXJuYWxDYWxsIjtpOjE7czo0OiJ0aW1lIjtpOjEzMTIzNzYyNjU7fQ==&autoplay=“>Anecdotal Objectivist

Ousting the Neocons

The neoconservatives have been forced from the shadows to throw their hats in the political arena. This is something these clandestine kingmakers have been reluctant to do for decades and rightly so; they have controlled the Republican Party under the miasma of moderation, selling out the conservative voices of Americans: but no longer.

 The conservative movement that is sweeping this country is taking back the Republican Party and these neocons are raising their heads to cry foul. Last week Charles Krauthammer the neoconservative prophet decried the CPAC as “Fringe elements in the republican party.” He stated, and I paraphrase here, The CPAC is a bunch of college student who what to be Ayn Rand, then eventually grow up to become republicans.

 Then there is the prodigal son, Bill Crystal whose father Erving pioneered the neoconservative movement based on the philosophical musings of Leo Strauss, with a smattering of Machiavellian politics. Bill said of the Egyptian uprising, and I paraphrase here, it is 1776 all over again.

 He dismisses America’s failed foreign policy in the Middle East, comparing the anarchy of the mob with the American Revolution which created the freest most prosperous nation in history. He and his cohorts from the Bush administration are responsible for empowering the Islamic theocracy sweeping the Middle East. They took radical Islam out of the back streets and alley ways, and placed them in political driver’s seat in Iraq and soon to be Egypt. Not to worry, they say, this is democracy at work, this is freedom. No… . This is a process that empowers our enemies and threatens civilization as we know it.

 Poor Harry Reid can’t figure it out either. He said, and I paraphrase here, the Republican Party has been hijacked by the Tea Party and won’t compromise. What he should have said is: “The conservatives have taken back the Republican Party and we can no longer manipulate the neocons.”

 You will hear the media in the coming months refer to a rift in the Republican Party. That’s just us, the “Fringe elements” in the Republican Party reshaping it in our conservative image as we strive to save our country from the economic abyss, while restoring fiscal sanity, our liberty and constitution.

Labor Extortion in a Socialist Democracy

The ongoing labor protest in Wisconsin has the backing from the Democratic National Convention and President Obama’s political machine, Organizing for America. This is an unprecedented move by an American president, and his political party, to support a partisan special interest group.

 Unions are collectivized labor monopolies. They are exempt from the Sherman Act and the anti- monopoly laws of our nation. For decades they have lived large off the taxpayer’s dime; endowed with Cadillac insurance plans (exempted under Obama care), golden parachute pension with early retirement benefits (apart from social security), and salaries that far surpasses their private sector counterparts. They have accomplished this with the blessing of the Democratic Party, whom they support with union dollars to keep them in political power, essentially paying the democrats to legislate union largess at the taxpayer’s expense.

 In Wisconsin we see two coercive government-created, government-sponsored monopolies working in unison: the Teachers Union and the public school system, which has an abysmal record of failure, and a questionable future that defies fiscal sustainability.

 The talking heads of liberalism brand this political malfeasance as democracy in action. I beg to differ; this is anarchy in action. The democratic process was instituted last November legally at the ballot box, when the majority of Wisconsin people voted in republican conservatives to restore fiscal order to their state. The DNC endorsed mob on the streets of Madison, Wisconsin represents only a fraction of the taxpaying public; they are by no means a voting majority.

 If anything this labor unrest represents socialism. Here we have a collectivized labor monopoly, demanding fiscal privileges from the state, which in turn extorts money (taxes), from the private sector. We have Obama’s political machine enabling a special interest group that constitutes a large part of his voting constituency, and we have the perpetuation of an oppressive government monopoly (state run public schools).

 The bottom line is we have two unsustainable monopolies that are no longer economically feasible to maintain: the teachers union, which like all labor monopolies are bankrupting individual states to the tune of billions of dollars and the public school system, which not only is the most expensive in the world, but produces students who rank 36th in the world when compared with other nations.

 The governor and the people of Wisconsin are presented with a unique opportunity. They can start a national template for legally dismantling these oppressive labor monopolies. They should immediately eliminate the public school tax burden at the state level, so parents could take the fiscal savings and make financial plans to send their children to private schools. This would be a template disbanding the public school monopoly (another catalyst that would sweep across America).

 The democratic socialists (Obama administration), has played its hand in an attempt to maintain the status quo. This only facilitates the conservative movement sweeping across the nation, galvanizing our resolve to restore fiscal sanity to our constitutional republic.

 Some time ago the hypothetical question was raised in the media: “Is President Obama a socialist?” There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind; Obama’s actions speak louder than words.

Entitlement Wars

As the war on government spending escalates in Washington, we see the abject failure of American politics in action. Both parties struggle for power and control of the welfare state. The stakes are high. On one hand we have the preservation of our economy, our republic, culture and American sovereignty; on the other the perpetuation of the oppressive state which comes complete with keys to the Federal Reserve, fiat currency, a monopoly on force, and the legal jurisdiction to rob society of wealth.

 We are witnessing a tipping point in American democracy, whereby the entitlement class has grown into a formidable voting block, enabled by the vast government bureaucracy, which grows exponentially to redistribute the wealth of our industry. Democrats and Republicans alike know that elections are bought and paid for with entitlements, lucrative often no compete federal contracts, funding for unions and other government sponsored entities; Fannie Mea & Freddie Mac,  financial institutions, insurance companies, real-estate, and the list goes on.

 Those Americans, who conduct their lives based on reality and the causality thereof, know that government spending has reached a zenith and is unsustainable. Both parties maintain the pathological lie that they are fiscally conservative, that they intend to shrink government spending and cut entitlements, yet actions speak louder than words. Obama’s annual budget calls for 3.7 trillion in spending; spending that is littered with entitlements old and new. The democrats in the house and senate continue their time honored altruistic practice of using the poor and the elderly as human shields while they assail republicans for austere economic policies.

 The republican party, having long been commandeered by neoconservatives, swell their numbers in both the house and senate. They play a dangerous game of appeasement, conceding the liberal poison incrementally through a deceptive practice known as compromise. Evil like poison cannot be tolerated incrementally; the end run will lead to nothing but corruption and death.

The Referendum Against Pragmatism

November 2nd has been touted as a referendum against President Obama, the democratic congress, and senate. Peel the onion back a little more and one will discover the true referendum was against pragmatism. It is pragmatic deceit perpetrated by a ruling class of liberals that Americans oppose; it is pragmatism with its antithetical view of reality, and associated consequences, that Americans fear as dangerous.

 Most Americans find moral guidance through religious doctrine, yet many remain philosophically bereft. They know something is dreadfully wrong in Washington, but they struggle to diagnose the political maelstrom that afflicts this nation.

 Consider this example of pragmatism; upon leaving her position as house speaker, Nancy (we have to first pass the bill to find out what’s in it) Pelosi, touted her liberal accomplishments as meritorious: passage of Obama Care, Don’t ask Don’t tell, and the ratification of START, all of which are fraught with hazard and opposed by a majority of Americans who are already straddled with insurmountable government debt, and 9.8% unemployment. But to a pragmatic Pelosi, her unpopular accomplishments moved this nation one step closer to the liberal goal of socialist utopia.

 Pragmatism with its essential tools: prudence, practicality, and political expediency, is immoral; it leads to capricious subjectivism. Show me any individual who lacks philosophical moral guidance, and I will show you a pragmatist; someone who believes reality is malleable and subject to their whimsical logic. For example, one may rob a liquor store at gunpoint. For the gunman, the practical thing to do is kill the clerk, rather than have that person pick them out of a police line up at a later date. In reality, one human being has killed another because it was the prudent thing to do at the time; the causality is someone has lost a loved one to violence, and the ramifications of this act will impact many lives indefinitely.

 Here is another illustration. A financial planner seeking wealth, power and lifestyle, devises a Ponzi scheme to swindle clients and acquaintances. It is both prudent and expedient for them to amass as much wealth as possible, stash it off shore, live lavishly in the moment, and should they get caught, do the time and emerge from prison a millionaire. In reality they have stolen fortune from businesses and families, leaving some bankrupt and destitute, leaving others to contemplate suicide, and the causation of this pragmatic act, cascades forward for generations.

 In the political realm, pragmatism is much more pernicious. Pragmatic politicians have buried our nation with insurmountable debt, brought economic destruction on the private sector, demolished our foreign policy and replaced liberty with socialist tyranny. They create class warfare and institutionalize divisive racism.  They lavish, favor on one special interest group while looting another, placing political expediency over objective reality. The moral implications of political pragmatism are the tangible lost of our republic and civilization as we know it.

Debt Commission folly

There seemed to be a lot of back slapping approval on capital hill last week. Law makers overwhelmingly embraced the recommendations of President Obama’s Debt Commission.

On thorough examination, the report is nothing more than a vehicle for raising taxes. The abolition of existing tax breaks, and increasing taxes on gasoline are hardly innovative ideas, and they constitute nothing toward reconciling a government debt that now constitutes 60% of GDP. Increasing the Social Security deduction while simultaneously raising the eligibility age to 68 will not save this government sponsored ponzi scheme, it will however, insure that many of us will never see dime one of the money stolen from us over a lifetime of employment.

What I find troubling is nobody in the lame stream media (Fox News included) refuted these fundamentally flawed proceedings. There seemed to be little if no opposition from conservatives either; in a bipartisan manner they unanimously agree; the way to reduce the debt is to (once again) place the burden on the taxpayer. This short sighted economic approach is why we are in this fiscal conundrum in the first place. Politicians only look at the immediate causation of any proposal in an effort to stave off economic catastrophe for yet another day. It’s like placing a band-aid over a ruptured aorta. They prefer to treat the symptoms of unsustainable government spending instead of curing the disease, and their method is always the same: confiscate more wealth.

Rather than cut frivolous spending and entitlement fraud, rather than shrink the size of their bloated bureaucracy, they intend to raise taxes in the face of recession, while simultaneously monetizing the national debt (quantitative easing). Ask a coke head what’s the one thing they like to do while snorting coke, and they will answer: “Snort more coke.” The same holds true for government spending, they are addicted to other people’s money and have a monopoly on force to take it.
