Occupy Wall Street Hypocrisy

Occupy Wall Street Hypocrisy

This video is a great primer on the hypocrisy of the Occupy Wall Street movement. It’s the same hypocrisy the Left has been promoting for decades, and it stinks just as bad (well, maybe worse from these unwashed modern-day hippies) as it ever did from the “respectable” mainline socialists in the Democrat Party. Remember it well, America, and keep it firmly fixed in your mental vision as we enter election year 2012. We have a country to save from these narcissistic maggots.

Why the Economy is Stifled

Why the Economy is Stifled

Why is the economy still stalled? As Home Depot founder Bernie Marcus put it (and I agree with him), the business community is in an extended holding pattern until we see whether we’ll have four more years of this anti-business Marxist in the White House.

Putting the Paste Back in the Tube

Putting the Paste Back in the Tube

Western Civilization burns while our Party of Power plays the fiat financial fiddle. Will we continue the shadow dance pretending we have a limited government or will we muster up the courage to tell our media enhance perpetually re-elected puppet master that he who pays the piper calls the tune? It is time for my generation to admit we have been ripped off for every cent ever extorted from us for Social Security, and the only way we can receive benefits is to have the government extort it from our children and give it to us.

Payroll tax ‘cut’ is another welfare scam

Payroll tax 'cut' is another welfare scam

Last year, a one-year cut in the payroll taxes that working Americans pay to finance Social Security was enacted in the name of so-called economic “stimulus.” But, like the rest of the economic stimuli that have come from Washington over the last three years, the only thing that has been stimulated is the growing hole of national debt into which we sink deeper and deeper. Now, unsurprisingly, our president and his Democratic colleagues want to continue, and possibly expand, this payroll tax holiday despite its obvious failure.

Social Justice is Un-American, Un-Biblical

Social Justice is Un-American, Un-Biblical

There is a tremendous amount of controversy in our country today about “social justice.” This terms sounds like something that everyone should support, but it is in fact nothing but a socialist agenda. America was founded on the Biblical principle of equality before the law. “Social justice,” which is a Marxist concept, relies on the principle of equality of outcome. These two philosophies are at odds with one another, and produce very different results.

Fiddling While Rome Burns

Fiddling While Rome Burns

No amount of spin, or rhetoric, or blame-gaming can change the mathematical facts on the ground: Our debt has spiraled out of control and we are rapidly reaching a point of no return. This Congress and this President have had more than enough time to act, but they have failed to do so. If their dismal approval ratings are any indication, there will be a price to pay for this inexcusable indolence come November 2012.

Comrade Sam: Eat Your Broccoli or Else

Comrade Sam: Eat Your Broccoli or Else

Not only do we have to eat our peas, but we might have to eat our broccoli as well. The Obama Administration reached a tyrannical high recently when, during oral arguments before the District of Columbia Court of Appeals on the constitutionality of Obamacare’s health-insurance mandate, their lawyer, Beth Brinkmann, made the claim that a law requiring Americans to eat broccoli could be constitutional.

Fast, Furious and Lawless Obama Regime

Fast, Furious and Lawless Obama Regime

At this point in time, anyone who does not understand that America has been taken over by a lawless, communist regime is woefully out of touch with the glaring reality of our situation. How anyone could not see the devilish behavior of Barack Obama and his Marxist buddies in Congress and his administration is hard to fathom, except when we consider that there really are extremely stupid and deluded people in the world. In 2012, vote as if your country is at stake–because it is.

Rush Limbaugh on a Lesson for Today From Thanksgiving

Rush Limbaugh on a Lesson for Today From Thanksgiving

Yesterday on his show, Rush Limbaugh shared what he calls the “true story of Thanksgiving” as recorded in his best-seller “See I Told You So.” It’s the story of the Pilgrim’s well-intentioned but misguided and nearly disastrous flirtation with socialism (before there was such a name for such behavior), and how free market principles saved the colony. It’s a story that every, every, EVERY American needs to know.

The Secret Pilgrim History

The Secret Pilgrim History

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.

Elitist Hypocrites Hungry to Spend Others Money

Elitist Hypocrites Hungry to Spend Others Money

This is just rich–excuse the pun.You’ve probably heard of some of the wealthy Americans like Warren Buffett, Barack Obama and others who have their zeal on to spend other people’s money, claiming taxes aren’t high enough on America’s most successful citizens.Watch what happens when some of these hypocrites are given a chance to donate to the US Treasury of their own free will.

Liberal violence rising

Liberal violence rising

While necessity is the mother of invention, sloth and envy beget mediocrity and upheaval – the twin siblings of secular-socialism. It is in this vein that a rebellious and increasingly violent spirit of incoherent anarchy continues to fester in urban centers across the nation. This is most evident in the form of the envy-driven “Occupy wherever” nonsense embraced by the “progressive” establishment.

The Religious Roots of My Libertarian Leaning

The Religious Roots of My Libertarian Leaning

My original attraction to libertarian ideals started in political theory and theology rather than in politics. This is not surprising because I did both part of my undergraduate work and three years of my postgraduate work in philosophy and biblical studies. Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence contains a very clear example of the mixture of Libertarian ideals with religious philosophy.

Organized Anarchy Leads to One Last Question

Organized Anarchy Leads to One Last Question

Symbiosis is the living together in more or less intimate association or close union of two dissimilar organisms as in parasitism. What we are witnessing today is symbiosis on steroids wherein the parasite isn’t merely along for the ride but instead demands the driver’s seat. America has taken such a bizarre turn that oxymorons are the only things that make sense any more.

We don’t want to end up like Italy

We don't want to end up like Italy

The Wall Street Journal calls the economic implosion now taking place in Europe “a crisis of the welfare state.” For America, this is a time for decision and definition. Not a time for splitting the baby. Are we going to continue in the direction of materialism and bureaucracy and share the fate of Europe? Or will we make the tough decisions to get back on the path of prosperity, the path of faith and individual freedom?

Perverting the American Dream

Perverting the American Dream

America is a forgiving nation. America has always rejected the notion of debtor’s prisons, and our bankruptcy laws reflect that spirit of giving someone multiple chances to get it right. However, it is perverse for politicians to try to use the money of those who pay their bills to fund the mortgages of those who they fear might not.

Birds of a Feather: Who’s With the Occupy Movement

Birds of a Feather: Who's With the Occupy Movement

PJ Media recently compiled a list that shows which individuals and organizations have “expressed their support for, sponsorship of, or sympathy for the Occupy Wall Street movement.” From this list, you can tell a lot about the people and organizations that support this public temper tantrum of envy and covetousness known as “Occupy Wall Street.” You can also tell a lot about the Occupy Wall Street movement by the people who support and have sympathy for it. People and groups aren’t going to support something that is wholly or even mostly going in a different direction than they are.

Why I Lean Libertarian

Why I Lean Libertarian

If you are tired of the continual government corruption and the senseless rules and spending, most of which fail to avoid mishaps, you may want to rethink your political philosophy. This isn’t a choice between good government and bad government. Much of government by its very nature does more harm than good.

Star Parker on the Welfare State

Star Parker on the Welfare State

Reason TV did an interview of Star Parker, founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE). In the opening of the interview, she nails the socialist approach of the Left to the wall: “This whole notion that we should even have a ‘war on poverty’ dismisses the fact that individuals have a role in their own lives.”

Price Controls Are Never Good Economics

Price Controls Are Never Good Economics

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.

Imagine: Mitt Romney on Truth Serum

Imagine: Mitt Romney on Truth Serum

Try to imagine, if you will, a liberal presidential candidate trying to pass himself off as a Republican. Now imagine this “Republican” on truth serum on a television talk show, being asked about his record. If this “Republican” was asked about his support for government health care schemes, this is what it might look like…

RomneyCare Architect: ObamaCare Based on RomneyCare

RomneyCare Architect: ObamaCare Based on RomneyCare

Apparently Mitt Romney is the only person in the country who doesn’t realize the unconstitutional health care bill known as ObamaCare is basically the same animal as what he forced on the once-free people of Massachusetts–and in fact ObamaCare is modeled on Romney’s Frankenstein. MIT Professor Jonathan Gruber, who was involved in both RomneyCare and ObamaCare, says they are the same bad dog.

What the Occupationists Want

What the Occupationists Want

As usual, non “mainstream” media groups like the Media Research Center are out there getting answers for the American people about what the “occupationist” protesters believe and want. The “mainstream” media must be too busy praising and applauding their comrades on the street to get us any real information. Based on the interviews MRC conducted of the occupationists in Washington D.C., this is what these Marxists believe in.

RomneyCare and ObamaCare: The Same Bad Prescription

RomneyCare and ObamaCare: The Same Bad Prescription

Rick Perry isn’t my first or even second choice for president of the United States, for a number of reasons. But there are some areas where he definitely gets it right, and one of them is RomneyCare. This state-level, prototype version of ObamaCare is almost identical to ObamaCare in every important way–and all of them are bad.

Mercenary Revolutionaries

Mercenary Revolutionaries

So some of the people who seek to destroy freedom and the free market in America are getting paid to do it? What a deal! When I joined the Tea Party movement, I didn’t get paid a dime. at? You say we have to be trying to tear down America, not restore freedom, fiscal responsibility and respect for the Constitution, to qualify?
