This video provides some great analysis from Mary Kissel at the Wall Street Journal over who’s really to blame for the 2008 financial and subsequent economic meltdown, and how a current lawsuit further reveals the guilty. And it seems Fannie and Freddie aren’t really contesting the ugly truth about this insanity.
The Marxist Occupy Wall Street tantrum in Portland are attempting to undermine the jobs of their fellow Americans, as well as the access of their fellow Americans to the goods coming through the port at Portland, Oregon. In their efforts to protect their fellow Americans from being contaminated by the free market in Portland, they found it necessary to throw a lit cigarette in the face of a trucker, damage his property, and attempt to drag him from his truck.
We stand at a critical crossroads today in clarifying the role of government in our free country. President Obama was correct to say in Osawatomie, Kansas recently that “this is the defining issue of our time.” Ours is no longer, in our president’s take on things, the land of the free and the home of the brave. America now is the land of the envious and the home of the victim.
Recent national rankings released by three different organizations prove that South Dakota has one of the best business environments and among the strongest economic policies in the nation. For the seventh year in a row, the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council named South Dakota as the No. 1 state in the nation for friendliness toward small businesses.
The EPA’s most recent announcement is all vehicles must meet an average of 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025—a doubling of today’s average of about 27 mpg, according to the Wall Street Journal. The free enterprise system is once again interrupted by the edict of a rogue government agency, and the result will be higher costs to the consumer–whether the consumer wants them or not–and a reduction in vehicle safety in order meet these unrealistic standards.
Socialists on the Left would have us believe that their “progressive” (an Orwellian term designed to obfuscate the fact that they are liberal–modern liberal, not classic liberal) ideas can work in the real world. However, it only takes a cursory examination in the real world to realize these fantasies won’t withstand contact with reality. This video provides some insight into how and why these principles contrast, as well as how they work…or, in the case of liberalism, don’t work.
After visiting the website of Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength, the group demanding higher taxes on wealthy Americans like themselves, one may lament the defiant, don’t-tread-on-me spirit that once defined our national character. They believe that there is no problem that can’t be solved by giving more money to the federal government. Yet any millionaire could easily make better, more productive use of their money than the government ever will.
If you’ve never heard Medved’s Thanksgiving story, then you are about to have all your assumptions about our Thanksgiving holiday challenged. Particularly, Medved talks about the economic model the pilgrims tried when they first came to New England. Medved tells when the pilgrims arrived, they instituted a socialist collective where everyone would work together and everyone would get a share of the crops. It turned out to be the same kind of debacle socialism always turns out to be.
Homosexual activists in Iowa who want to force a Christian businesswoman to affirm their counterfeiting of marriage. Two lesbians want to call their union “marriage” and insist that a Christian baker make a wedding cake for them. This is another clear illustration that the homosexual agenda is not about tolerance, but about forcing people and society in general to affirm their unhealthy and immoral sexual behaviors.
Another braintrust from the BoWeL Movement (aka Occupy Wall Street) heard from. This idiot in a what looks like a sports shirt (where people get paid millions of dollars for chasing a ball around, but he doesn’t seem to have a problem with those millions) says he doesn’t need to have a job to support himself. Everything he needs, he can just “take it from the erf.”
Frank Turek has written a column that every American–pro-American Tea Party patriot, Marxist occupationist, and in between–should read. These graphs point out the great strides in affluence much of the world has made since 1800, especially in the West. This informational also points out that even the “poor” in America have it better than the vast majority of the world. So what is the real problem? Is it capitalism? Is it Wall Street? Is it “Jew bankers?” No, it is sin. The sins of envy and covetousness being chief among them in this instance.
Folks, I know the Occupy Wall Street movement is painful to watch. Watching people trash and badmouth our country and our way of life is never pleasant. It’s also painful to watch adult human beings who, by virtue of education and opportunity to accumulate common sense, should know better act like complete morons in public.But you need to see these videos and pictures, lest there be any doubt about what we’re dealing with.
Virtually from the beginning, the Marxists in the “Occupy Wall Street” (aka BoWeL (Bolsheviks West League) Movement) have told us not to believe our eyes, that their cries of class warfare, envy, and assault on property rights has nothing to do with Marxism. But the Bible of these Marxists, called the Manifesto for a Free Society, makes it clear beyond any doubt whatsoever that this mob has targeted the property and property rights of Americans who have what they want.
Your immediate response may be, “What does Christianity have to do with economics?” In response, I would say: everything, if you think of economics as the system and means of production and exchange whereby people meet their own and each other’s essential needs. What qualifies Christianity to speak on economics? Simply put, to properly understand economics, you must begin with a proper understanding of man.
The Leftists in Oakland’s “Occupy Wall Street” effort are all upset that police used riot gas against them when they tried to remove these filthy squatters from public property. In Occupy Oakland, the “peaceful” Marxists started throwing bottles and rocks at police before any riot control techniques were used, and the Marxist spokesperson admits this…before continuing to blame police.
In a video reminiscent of my “Spitting in the Wind” article a few weeks ago, and the enlightening graphic someone came up with to show how much the Occupy Wall Street idiots owe to the corporate structure they so loathe, The Unlikely Conservative has put together a short video to help us all better understand the dedication of this movement. He points out how the average Marxist hairball protester probably patronizes a minimum of 22 evil corporations in a hard day of railing about evil corporations.
In a shocking display of journalism (wouldn’t it be incredible if other media outlets–especially national ones–saw this and emulated it?), ABC7 in Chicago has taken a look at the origins and players behind the Occupy Wall Street and the entire occupationist movement. They found that the movement wasn’t even sparked within the United States, and is aided by some anti-American rabble rousers who go way back.
A businesswoman in San Diego has learned a very costly lesson at the hands of the Marxist occupationists in her city. Their lawlessness, filth and threats have caused her to have to close her business which was located next to their encampment. Do you think there is a shred of remorse or regret on the part of the Marxist UCCers? Of course not. She is an evil business owner. She is a capitalist. She is part of the problem.
Last week, one of the Republican Party’s young stars, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., spoke at the Heritage Foundation about the values that made America great. Our economic machine is sputtering today as a result of departure from these values. Today’s task is to restore them and get America growing again, which will benefit everyone. Americans must recapture what made this the world’s greatest, most prosperous nation.
Peter Schiff of Euro Pacific Capital went onto the street recently and had a conversation (or tried to) with the Marxists of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Revealed in this video clip is a startling revelation concerning Wal-Mart (and other businesses in America): employers don’t hold their employees hostage at gunpoint! Yes, it’s true: if people don’t like the pay and working conditions where they’re at, they can look for a job elsewhere! This may just revolutionize the plight of oppressed laborers in America!
Take a fresh look at a years-old statement by the great Milton Friedman on why capitalism is the best and most fair economic (and political, for that matter) system ever devised by man. He cuts right through the idealistic, utopian nonsense that was SOP on the metrosexual Phil Donahue show to inject a healthy dose of the real world.
Richard Epstein of the New York University School of Law explained simple economics to the Leftists at PBS recently. Somebody will probably get fired for allowing this guy on the air at Propaganda Broadcasting System, but for now be thankful for the lesson. We would so ourselves one better to worry less about what another person has that we don’t, and worry more about how we can work harder to reap more of the rewards to be found in this wonderful land of opportunity known as America.
Recently ABC News highlighted the story of Leeton, Missouri, a town so small — a population less than 700 — and hard-hit by the lackluster economy that it lost its only grocery store. Seeing a need, local school teachers Bonnie Seymour and Marijayne Manley decided it would be a good idea to have their agricultural business and entrepreneurship students start their very own grocery store.
Starting October 1, price controls were set by law on debit card swipe fees. Such populist well-intentioned legislation reduces economic freedom and slows economic growth. This situation has nothing to do with capitalism and everything to do with socialism. It seeks a state-directed and regulated economy serving the supposedly greater good of the nation. Such national socialism with the state seeking to control the economy is correctly called fascism.
