Waiving the Jones Act.
On the heels of Hurricane Sandy, the Administration wants to lift rules that restrict fuel delivery to the storm stricken areas.
Why is the idea of getting government interference out of the way only a good idea during times of disaster?
The Obama Administration is admitting that Socialism, as codified in The Jones Act, is a hinderance to the recovery process following Hurricane Sandy.
The Jones Act forbids non-union tankers to make deliveries into certain ports.
Why isn’t this a “hinderance” all the time? The dirty little secret the Leftists are hoping you skip over in your thinking is… IT IS.
What the Obama Administration is saying is “Socialism does not work”.
When the chips are down Socialist policies must be removed because they are so bad… in fact, they’re bad ALL THE TIME, but our tolerance of them is slightly higher when times are “good’. But think about the progress we could be making in this country if we removed all artificial barriers such as this one. There are THOUSANDS of them out there…
Right after we permanently get rid of this crap we should be asking ourselves why we ever let it happen in the first place!
Somehow these Charlatans convinced us that ideas like this were “good”. Somehow they got us to fall for it. The responsiblity is ours that it happened. Take responsibility, get rid of these people, and don’t let it happen again.
In the face of true need and despair our Liberal Politicians are forced to admit for all to see that not only do their ideas not work… they have never worked. (History is replete with examples of such failed thought. The consequences vary from bad, to abhorrent.)
It has always been about favors… and money… and power. Never has it been about you.
If you’re not amazed, you’re not paying attention.
