I implore Americans to read books again. It will be difficult at first, have you given up reading for some time. But I want Americans to force themselves to read. Whatever they read, they should throw a history book in every once in a while, even if the reading is a bit dry, they can push forward knowing that they’ll possess knowledge few others do.
Right now, I’m reading, Their Finest Hour, by Winston Churchill. The book opens like this:
MORAL OF THIS WORK:
In War: Resolution
In Defeat: Defiance
In Victory: Magnanimity
In Peace: Good Will
THEME OF THIS VOLUME:
How the British people held the fort ALONE till those who hitherto had been half blind were half ready.
In the theme of course, he spoke of Roosevelt.
The sky is falling yet again. CNN told me so. Not only does global warming threaten wipe out Manhattan in a CO2 powered deluge, but the world hates America, millions are dying around the world because of American Imperialism, an Imperialism powered by us Capitalist Pigs. But, CNN and NPR told me that there’s a recession looming. Thank goodness. Maybe people being out of work will finally cause Capitalism’s implosion, as Hillary seems to want.
But wait. There’s a problem. What the heck does the word recession mean when it comes to economics? Ummm, folks. We’re not even close. Yes the economy has stopped growing at the rate it had been for several years. (Around 7 percent) It’s grown about 1.7 percent in the last month. But as the word itself alludes, a recession is marked by a contracture of market growth for 6 consecutive months. I’ll be sure to set my doomsday clock when the FIRST month of recession takes place.
Alas. It seems I was duped again by politicians who’s only hope of election is to make me believe that I can’t live without them, can’t make do without THEIR system. Mostly their system is comprised of taking my money and my stuff. Hey Hillary–how about a smaller system? Would that be OK? Would Karl Marx approve?
For the next few months, until the general election, maybe I’ll sit around, eating Soylent Green (It’s people after all, and they’re not THAT important), driving my Hybrid, and toting luggage made of Hemp. Great stuff that Hemp. But I don’t light Hemp on fire–it messes with Serotonin, which is kinda important. And if on election day, I still feel like everything is just bad, bad, bad, I’ll vote for the Party of Defeat. You all know which one that is.
More likely though, I’ll vote for whoever will create jobs by cutting taxes, maintain the best military in the world, and continue to allow America to be the world leader in virtually everything good.
William Jefferson Clinton
This is an article published in the New York Times in 1990. 18.7 million jobs created because of Reaganomics. But the Dems still can’t get it right. They still want to push the Marxist agenda, bleeding cash out of hard-working Americans, thus destroying “Big Business” (Darth Vader music, please). Ever been employed by a poor person? If you have been, I guarantee you were poor too. Corporate America is lefty codeword for “Tax Sink”. When they speak of the rich–they’re not talking about all the millionaire Hollywood actors hiding their cash in overseas accounts. They’d prefer to tax the hell out of these businesses, already burdened by near-crushing regulation, until there’s no one left to employ you or me. And guess what? When there’s no one left to employ, there’s no one working to feed our welfare system or help Africans learn to stop annihilating themselves.
Do you know who said this?
“Together we must also confront the new hazards of chemical and biological weapons, and the outlaw states, terrorists and organized criminals seeking to acquire them. Saddam Hussein has spent the better part of this decade, and much of his nation’s wealth, not on providing for the Iraqi people, but on developing nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and the missiles to deliver them. The United Nations weapons inspectors have done a truly remarkable job, finding and destroying more of Iraq’s arsenal than was destroyed during the entire gulf war. Now, Saddam Hussein wants to stop them from completing their mission. I know I speak for everyone in this chamber, Republicans and Democrats, when I say to Saddam Hussein, “You cannot defy the will of the world,” and when I say to him, “You have used weapons of mass destruction before; we are determined to deny you the capacity to use them again.”
