Ain’t got No Sugar.

(For David… regarding the idea that Socialism, referencing his question of my sanity on Trump’s China Tariffs, requires Capitalism to survive.  While the current topic involves raw materials the concept is the same.  Crappy Communist/Socialist countries require us, and our productivity, to exist.  They are parasitic.  This originally posted in Feb. 2012)

Given the latest comments by European Leaders at the G20 conference regarding their current difficulties having originated in the U.S. and President Obama’s granting amnesty to illegal aliens  with accolades from the Mexican President (because it is a huge subsidy to Mexico through the flow of US Dollars south), I thought it was worth revisiting.

It has been fascinating to watch as Europe melts down.

It illustrates a theory I’ve had for many years which is that socialists survive at the mercy of capitalists in the name of stability. I started thinking about this in the early nineties,  Clinton had just handed, yes handed, Mexico 5 billion dollars.  That was back when 5 billion could buy you something nice.  It was done under the auspices of fighting the war on drugs.  But what it really did was prop up a socialist state.  Who wants a revolution so close to home… right? I don’t mean to pick on Clinton because Reagan and Bush have done it too.

Reagan’s granting amnesty to 13 million illegal immigrants was another way of subsidizing Mexico as it kept the flow of U.S. Dollars heading south into their economy.  (We could see this again…)  George W. did it by making it illegal to purchase prescription medication from Canada.  If that had been made legal it would have been tantamount to declaring war on Canada because it would have destroyed their health system by preventing them from dictating prices they would pay to the drug companies.  To put it in the simplest terms, they get away with dictating prices because you pay more here and subsidize the cost for them.  Feel good about that? We have seen this type of socialist subsidizing for years across every administration.  It is primarily through our military… “You guys in trouble financially?”,  “Let’s have joint maneuvers, or how about we move some more troops in for training exercises…”.  All that means is U.S. Dollars going in to the their not-so-self-sufficient Socialist Paradise.

We have also seen this played out when military contracts are steered to foreign countries for no apparent benefit.  The product isn’t better, but darn it they need the help.  (Bare in mind, I am a capitalist… it is my duty to buy the best product for me at the lowest price.  I have no issue with overseas manufacturing.  Our lack of manufacturing says more about us than them.  That’s for another time.) Well, now things have changed…  we ain’t got no money.

Look at the panic and finger-pointing when the engine of Capitalism, slowly poisoned by Socialists, isn’t healthy enough to ride in and save the Socialist Dream.

If I sound merciless, it’s because I am.  As far as I’m concerned Socialism has been living on borrowed time.  (And it has been our own socialists lending it to them.)  To steal a quote; “The chickenssss have come hoooome to roooost!” Now big daddy ain’t got no sugar…. and you’re on your own.

(An aside:  When are we going to have emergency hearings on “home-grown Socialism”?  Does Homeland Security know about this?  Where’s the Socialist Watch List?  The Socialist No-Fly roster?  Can’t we profile these people?  The destruction to this country and its citizens is profound. Someone should alert the press.)

Uh… Que Paso?

“Building a wall between Mexico and the United States is a terrible idea. It is an idea based on ignorance and has no foundation in the reality of North American integration.” – Mexican Finance Minister Luis Videgaray

Regardless of how you feel about Trump, the Wall, Mexico Paying for a Wall, The U.S. Paying for a Wall, Your Aunt Betty Paying for the Wall, etc. etc. There is something extremely interesting about what the current Mexican Socialist Finance Minister has to say here.

Please re-read the words “…the reality of North American integration.”

Really?

I thought that idea was strictly the territory of flag waving, tin foil hat wearing, gun clinging conspiracy theorists.

Apparently I need to add Mexico’s Finance Minister to that list.

Allow me to ask a simple question,

Do you think the Mexican Government would feel the same way, as they seem to feel now, if millions of Americans were flooding into Mexico taking advantage of their social services, such as Welfare, food stamps, Medicaid, Medicare, Subsidized Housing, Schools, Universities, anon, while simultaneously demanding Free-Market Capitalism, a complete re-write of their Constitution defining Inalienable Rights in order to elevate the Individual above the Government, the Right to Vote (even though they do it anyway, they just want to make it official) and Immunity from all or any Immigration laws… all the while, vowing to Never Leave?

We’ve talked in the past about Socialist Countries living on the teat of American Capitalism, with Canada and Mexico being two of the worst offenders.  Both Countries would find it difficult if we didn’t prop them up through accepting their workers, buying their resources, providing favorable trade policies and often direct grants to their countries.

This topic rarely get’s even a mention from our studious media watchdogs… as it should.

Well, in my opinion, it’s time to stop feeding the bears… or Gila Monsters in this specific case.

It’s time to cut off direct subsidies to those who overtly wish to destroy the Greatest Experiment in Self Rule the World has ever known.  It’s time to stop allowing Socialism to survive it’s own oppressive, destructive and deadly nature.  It’s time for a Revolution of Enlightenment Thinking to take place in Mexico.

Viva La Age of Reason!

Sadly however, we no longer know what that means here in the U.S.  So one might ask “How do we promote such a Revolution in Thought on our borders?” The answer is we don’t. Until we get our own affairs in order, there will be no helping those most in need of it.

The Minister’s comments serve to highlight to conflict of visions… and they are also an accurate assessment of what is happening right before our eyes.  Mexico is not becoming a country Governed by Enlightenment Philosophy… it is the United States which is becoming a Socialized Democracy of the likes Marx,  envisioned, save the ridiculous Utopian tripe.

Unfortunately, due to our intellectual apathy and determined disregard for what is the value of American Exceptionalism, we may have already lost the battle to free the world, but more importantly save ourselves.


Xenophobia

If you don’t already… you will need to know this word.

xenophobia
[ ˌzēnəˈfōbēə, ˌzenə- ]

noun

intense or irrational dislike or fear of people from other countries.
Get ready to be accused of an intense hatred of those from other countries.  It’s coming to a bunch of stories near you.
Why?
Because You’re a Horrible Xenophobe.
Sure your concern about open borders and sophomoric screening of those few who come here legally is based entirely on your health.
Sure you could be so self-centered as to think Rapidly Fatal Diseases flooding into our Country and infecting your children is not a good idea.
And sure you might believe that the access of those who could be infected with such Diseases should be Extremely Limited, if not Halted, until we can get a handle on how we’re going to address these demonstrably Life Destroying Microbes.
All Hogwash!
Truth is, You’re just a Bigot who Hates.  You’re simply using the Lives of Your Children, Family, Friends and Neighbors as an Excuse to behave the way you have Always wanted to.  And that way is to Discriminate against other people who are different.  It doesn’t matter that ‘different’ means infected with a highly contagious, and constantly mutating, form of virus that causes epidemic levels of death.  No… the truth is, you’re a Xenophobe, as well as a Homophobe (if you forgot) and most certainly a Racist.
I’m glad we could get that out-of-the-way.  We all realize Honesty is the best policy.  And we all also know your supposed Fear is only a disguise for your inner drive to be a POS.
So… when your child comes home from school and says a couple of her classmates were taken to the nurses office because they were throwing up blood all over the Mrs. Giacomo’s Class during first period home room… you should remember that it’s no big deal.  Even when it happens again… and again…  Or when little Joey says his best friend has a cough that sounds like the Sea Lion he saw on the Zoo field trip, and it wont stop, so Joey ate his friend’s well coughed on lunch because Ms. Podesta said not to worry, it’s OK.  Just let it go.
And… when you go to the voting booth in few weeks to re-elect your favorite Democrat or Select Republican, who cares more about everything just like you, you should feel good because it was Your Guy who refused to secure the borders as a Demonstration of Their Tolerance and Love of All People … and it was the same Group who currently considers asking individuals coming into the United States from Countries infected with these diseases “Do you have Ebola?” to be ‘highly effective screening measures’ insured to protect you.  Plus, lest you forget, Their Liberal Progressive brilliance Forced Obama Care upon all of us, so now your Insurance Company has had to raise their rates, as well as their deductibles, and or leave your state altogether.  Oh, and you have a new Doctor… who you don’t know… and you can’t get in to see.
Nothing supports sound sleep like knowing the people you support are the Smartest People in the Room… just like you.  And They’re telling you not to worry.
Therefore… You’re not worried.
Because… you recognize Any other behavior would just illustrate an innate bigotry.  This is especially true if you’re White.  Because White People are born that way.  White Devils.
Feel better now that you know the truth that you’re a Racist Xenophobic Hater?
Good.
Oh, and I hear Rum is particularly good at killing Ebola.  You just have to drink a lot of it.  Rubbing it all over your body could help too.
Well… at least that’s what I’m going with.

(As a Note:  I’m not sure what you call someone who discriminates against a person with Ebola… or Pertussis, Tuberculosis, Malaria, Hemorrhagic Fever, Listeria, Lice, An Ax, Who is Covered in Blood, Has a Chainsaw and a mask made of Human Skin, Is Pointing a Gun at You and yelling to everyone that can hear them that they want to kill you… or Zombies… But it would Probably still make you a Xenophobic Hater.  I suggest the Rum.)


Burger King and Brown Gravy

It appears Burger King is Buying Tim Horton’s in Canada so it can move it’s base of operations up North to avoid the confiscatory corporate tax rates in the United States.

Let me ask anyone who see’s this as a Treasonous Betrayal…

Do you want the Number Two Fast Food Chain to stay in business so it can pay the Artificially High Minimum Wages set by politicians and moronic voters?

Yes… I do!

Well that’s what they’re trying to do, so you should be headed to the Burger Kind Drive-Up Window for your Double Whopper with Cheese and a Large Coke that you know you Love. (Eat it while you drive.)  Instead of calling for a Boycott.

No… I don’t!

Then you Hate minimum wage workers. You Hate readily available nutrition for the poor. You Hate the additional time afforded those single Moms who have to work three jobs and don’t have time to make dinner at home. You just Hate.  Hater.

You created this conundrum.  Sleep in it.

I’m just excited now that I can get my Double Whopper with Cheese, Extra-large Coke and an order of Fries WITH Gravy and Cheese Curds!  Brilliant!

(Some Day BK might see clearly and bring back the Veal Parmesan Sandwich.  I would buy shares at that point.)


If ISIS comes across our Border with Mexico…

It will be no one’s fault but the Democrat Party.

Period.

Followed only by those Leftist Republicans whose deliberate inaction on the issue of securing the borders FIRST prior to any discussion of reform of immigration policy.

If, God forbid, those Terrorist A-Holes succeed in killing American’s here in the U.S. the blood will be on the hands of those elected officials who have placed politics above security, economic and otherwise, for over a decade now.

There is No Excuse for the situation we are in… and our open, unprotected borders have been by design. Whether it was to set the stage for the continued life of the Leftist Democrat Party of the Fascist Left of the Republican party catering to big business…

They ALL will be to blame.

We have been talking about securing the borders since the beginning of the Bush Administration and we have done LESS THAN NOTHING. If anything, we have created a path of death and despair with the promise of free stuff and taking care of those who cannot take care of themselves from outside our country. It is as Sad as it is Sick that anyone supports such a Scheme foisted upon innocence.

But then there’s the not so innocent…

What’s left to add after those who came here illegally begin killing us?

Some offer they started a long time ago.

Wake Up. Secure the Borders. If that means a fence to at least slow them down then so be it.

Once we’re finished with that we can begin the conversation regarding easier access for those who wish to work here.

Enough is Enough,


Just Appear to Care

After Listening to Rep. Renee Ellmers’, a TEA Party candidate when she Won her Seat, go above and beyond to defend Amnesty for Illegal Aliens it caused me to think a little bit more about this issue and a much, much Larger One.

First, The push back Ellmers received should be a wake-up call for all those who courted, and received, TEA Party support when winning their seats.

Just because you ran and won as a TEA Party Candidate does Not Mean You Get a Pass when it comes to representing those who voted for you.  This is a NEW DAY in politics.  You should expect to be Held Accountable for your Actions once in office.  I realize this concept is completely foreign to the modern political class, but how did Nancy Pelosi put it?  Oh, right… “Embrace the Suck”.

It is long past due to put “Representative” back into Representative Republic.  And that Folks is Why the TEA Party is Hated by every Democrat and 80% of the Current Republican Party.

Second, I have tapped about this in the past.  Le Gran Mentira goes a long way to explain our Relationship with Mexico as well as Is Mexico Responsible for Anything?.

So I’ll leave that alone and you can read those by clicking on the links… if you care.

But there seems to be some Additional Confusion being suffered by those Republicans who are currently supporting Amnesty… or whatever name they are giving it so they can avoid calling it what it is.

It is no secret that the various Chambers of Commerce nationwide tend to represent Small and Medium Business’.  And, it should go without saying that they are logically “pro-business”.  At least one would Hope unless something has Changed.

So one might ask, Why when unemployment is Extremely High (gaming of the unemployment numbers can’t even provide a good rate at this point) would the various Chamber’s want to import 20 Million New Workers into the U.S and hand them Citizenship with all its commiserate rights?

Well here’s why…

These Business Owners live under the illusion that a large immigrant population here “legally” will be working for the low wages the illegal workers are working for now.

This leap of logic is beyond comprehension, but that’s what’s driving this push from the Chamber’s, and the Small and Medium Businesses, who support this push.

It’s Ignorance on a Profound level.

(Do you remember in grade school when you had mastered addition?  When 2+2=4 became easy?  When suddenly your teacher gave you problems that had more than one number in them… so 2+2+9=?… and you thought it was really hard?  Too many of us never quite got past that way of thinking and never learned to solve those problems. (It’s 12 by the way.  I got the problem from a Common Core math assignment.  But don’t worry, You get partial credit for just trying.)  Experience has taught me you don’t have to be smart to own a business… this may just be more proof.)

The only result of allowing a huge influx of what can only be considered citizens into the United States is an explosion of Union Members as well as new Leftist Voters.  That’s it.

Well, that’s not quite “it”.  There will also be an Explosion of new Welfare Recipients…

…which is why as a Libertarian Type I stray from the Doctrine and do Not support Open Borders.  The Poison Pill of Entitlement’s for those who do not work or Overburden Society by being rewarded for mortgaging other people’s productivity destroys the opportunity to throw the borders open to all who want to come and go at their leisure.  The fact our safety net has become a Day Care prevents us from exploring what would otherwise be a terrific chapter in our history.

Also take into account, We Already have illegals Voting in Elections across the U.S.  We already have illegals taking Welfare from this country.

Can we afford to elect More People who will simply accelerate this?  Can we afford to support legislation that promotes this because we were never good a math and it just sounds so nice?

Because that’s what we’re doing.

But all of this brings us to a much larger Issue.

If there is any doubt left in your mind that the Establishment Republicans and the Democrats are the same, makeaneffort at reason.

AmnestySupported by Democrats.  Supported by Establishment Republicans.

IRS TargetingSupported by Democrats.  Becoming clear it is also Supported by Establishment Republicans.

NSA Domestic SpyingSupported by Establishment Republicans.  Becoming clear it is also Supported by Democrats… so long as it doesn’t happen to them.  Right Diane Feinstein?

Obama CareSupported by Democrats.  Supported by Establishment Republicans.  (This Alone should serve as a warning.  Obama Care is the single most destructive Legislation we have seen in most of our lifetimes.  You can’t “Fix” Stupid.  It the ACA is Stupid.)

Spending us into OblivionSupported by Democrats.  Supported by Establishment Republicans.

Militarizing DHSSupported by Establishment Republicans.  Supported by Democrats.

Government Enforced Wage RatesSupported by Democrats.  Becoming clear they are also Supported by Establishment Republicans.

What should you take away from this?

Both Political Parties have become so accustomed needing only the Appearance of Caring in order to get Elected that all connection to our Founding Ideology has been severed.  Now the only philosophy which remains is Socialism… on all sides… or rather, just one side.

It’s time for the Political Revolution we are witnessing right before our eyes.

The fact we take it seriously is reflected in our holding people like Ryan and Ellmers’ feet to the fire.

The Waiting is Over.

It’s Happening Now.

Call it the TEA Party Revolution, call it the “We Can’t Take it Anymore! Revolution”, call it Whatever you Want, just…

Get on Board.

If you Really Care.


Just Concede!

This is the new Slogan for United States Foreign Policy…

and now Domestic Policy as well.

Apparently what limited effectiveness being demonstrated on the Border, just as overseas, had to be addressed.

So the Current Administration has handed down new rules dictating how our Border Patrol must conduct themselves.

From this day Forward! Border Patrol officers must retreat when faced with suspects throwing rocks.  The Officers will no longer be allowed to defend themselves.

It seems Border Patrol Agents have become too effective at deterring individuals who wish to travel to this country without entering legally…  In the simplest terms, Border Enforcement has been oppressing those who are seeking Amnesty here in the United States.

You might be saying to yourself “… this is ridiculous.”,  Among other things.

I would offer, It makes Complete Sense.

When you’re dealing with an extremely Complicated World having different policies for issues that arise Overseas versus those issues which occur right here at home is Counterproductive.  Not only that, It’s difficult, hard to manage and exhausting.  In fact, it can lead to Vast Confusion… even a break down in Morale.

In order to offer a happy, safe and nurturing workplace for U.S. Domestic Military the Administration has decided to make sure the Rules are Consistent, Transparent and Known by all.  And, they would only subject to change, without notice, by Administration Officials occasionally.  Above all, Consistency is the most important Policy Goal… unless determined otherwise.

Promoting a Friendly Border, just like our current Promotion of a Friendly Europe and South America, is incredibly important.  So the Replication of U.S. Foreign Policy within our National Borders is logical and will be Warmly Welcomed, once Those effected understand the Benefits.  The result, and implementation period, of this Improvement should mirror the Enormous Successes experienced with the Affordable Care Act.

It is Exactly this type of Progressive Thinking which will lead the United States into the 20th Century and elevates our status among Nations.  It is also this type of Mindset which will accelerate the realization of The New American Man.

Just Concede!

It’s more than a Slogan, it’s more than A Way of Life, it’s more than the Right Thing to Do…

It’s the New Normal!

You’ll get used to it, or not.

It Doesn’t Really Matter!

(“It’s Doesn’t Really Matter!” is a license Trademark of the Hillary 2016 Campaign and should not be used without express permission.  “Forward!”, “Just Concede!” and “It’s the New Normal!” are being borrowed with consent from Organizing For America and CPA respectively.)
