California and Marx

California government has tried virtually everything to mold itself into a Marxist regime.

The Golden State is what Obama wants America to be.  

The article makes the point that Arnold tried, back in 2005 to get things done, including reducing union power and capping state spending. He got blasted. Now, he just wants to be friends with everyone. His state now lies is shambles, unable to even pay for the paper for tax receipts.

The legislature in Cali spent its way to doom. The government sector grew out of control. Expect more of this for our whole country. The stimulus bill is only the beginning.

In the late 1840s, Karl Marx sat in the dusty library basement working on his manifesto. Charged with the electric writings of another Young Hegelian, Ludwig Andreas von Feuerbach , who like Marx wanted to provide mankind with a framework for existance in a godless universe, Marx saw economy as a zero-sum game. The rich could only be rich if the poor were poor.

Lenin, Stalin,  and Mau would not have come to power without Marx.

Indeed though, Marx was a man of his times. What Charles Dickens said to children, Marx said to revolutionaries, and those acolytes commenced to wage war on capitalism, which is the economic default of freedom. Now, California legistators have taken the mantle of populist revolutionaries.

We’re spending our way to oblivion.

China’s a fraud

The vogue statement by the intelligencia these days, is that America is not the world#s leader anymore.

Even conservatives have fallen for this clap-trap,  yet another lie from the Left, whose internal unhappiness bleeds into their political views.

I ask these people when I talk to them, ”Who, if not America, is the world’s leader?”

The easy answer for them, since they’ve read in Newsweek or seen on CNN so much about the country, is China.

Wrong.

I’m here to tell you, that China’s a fraud. It doesn’t create( the best indicator of the strength of a nation) it steals. They employ armies of cyberhackers who constantly attempt to breach our military’s databases, and lots of spies, who especially in the lax Clinton years, did manage to get lots of classified material from us, not the least of which was ballistic missile information. They copy and pilfer, but are incacable of running with America in creativity, freedom and rule of law.

China lags in almost every measurable area and not just behind the US, but Europe and Japan. And, they are still a corrupt society, something that holds back any nation in this era. The CIA World Fact Book lists countries by their 2008 GDP.  Even Japan is beating China. We have them beat by nearly a factor or four. And yet I keep hearing this garbage.

JFK again…

JFK: “Our tax system still siphons out of the private economy too large a share of personal and business purchasing power and reduces the incentive for risk, investment and effort- thereby aborting our recoveries and stifling our national growth rate” (1963).

No more limp-wrists for world leaders. I’m tired of it. Elect someone with some nuts and brains. Please.

Stimulate This

I just found this quote from JFK, on Riggsword, regarding tax cuts and their effects on the economy. Seems ‘ol JFK learned a lot about stimulation and it wasn’t just from Marilyn Monroe.

“Lower rates of taxation will stimulate economic activity and so raise the levels of personal and corporate income as to yield within a few years an increased – not a reduced – flow of revenues to the federal government.”

– John F. Kennedy, Jan. 17, 1963, annual budget message to the Congress, fiscal year 1964 (WorldNetDaily)

What’s so difficult to understand?

Atlas Cringed

I disagree with Ayn Rand on a lot of things. On the other hand, I agree with her on most.

In her novel, Atlas Shrugged, capitalism is brought to its knees when unproductive members of society use law to cripple the strong, and maintain the weak. Reseult: More people want to be weak than strong. Business and creativity collapse.

Obama’s 825 Billion dollar package…

That amount of money could translate to :

$22,000 given to every person in America whom is below the poverty line.

$2700 tax cut for every working person.

$275,000 to every business in the US.

It could and will also mean, that on average, American households will take on about $6500 in additional tax burden.

Things are about to get a lot worse than they needed to be, folks. I’m sorry.  This is precisely how to destimulate the economy.

Retort to Arianna Huffington’s anti-capitalism piece

I read the Huffington piece a few days ago. She keeps using the term Laissez-faire. Something that this nation has never really been. If the defenders of Marxism can state, without batting an eye, that true Marxism has not yet deployed, then we can also say the same for Laissez-faire capitalism. Good. This is not the cold, financial machine envisioned in Ayn Rand’s, Atlas Shrugged.

In this article, the author makes the obvious and excellent point that Huffington avoids. If we are to blame capitalism for the recession, to what do we point to as responsible for America’s success? Huffington would probably insinuate that America’s predatory economic practices and exploitation of second-rate economies has made us great, but now the chickens have come home to roost.

Lower regulation is good, but not really Laissez-faire.
