Wisdom or Insanity?

Theres-a-fine-line-between-genius-and-insanity.-I-have-erased-this-line.

Brilliance in Three parts  
Part I:

A.  Back off and let those men who want to marry men, marry men.

B. Allow those women who want to marry women, marry women.

C. Allow those folks who want to abort their babies, abort their babies.

D. In three generations, there will be no Democrats.
I love it when a plan comes together!

 Part II: 

10 Poorest Cities in America (How did it happen?)

City, State, % of People Below the Poverty Level

1. Detroit , MI 32.5%
2. Buffalo , NY 29.9%
3. Cincinnati , OH 27.8%
4. Cleveland , OH 27.0%
5. Miami , FL 26.9%
6. St. Louis , MO 26.8%
7. El Paso , TX 26.4%
8. Milwaukee , WI 26.2%
9. Philadelphia , PA 25.1%
10. Newark , NJ 24.2%
What do the top ten cities (over 250,000) with the highest poverty rate all have in common?
Detroit, MI       – (1st on the poverty rate list) hasn’t elected a Republican  mayor since 1961

Buffalo, NY      – (2nd) hasn’t elected one since 1954

Cincinnati, OH – (3rd) not since 1984

Cleveland, OH – (4th) not since 1989

Miami, FL      – (5th) has never had a Republican mayor

St. Louis, MO – (6th) not since 1949

El Paso, TX – (7th) has never had a Republican mayor

Milwaukee, WI – (8th) not since 1908

Philadelphia, PA – (9th) not since 1952

Newark, NJ – (10th) not since 1907
Einstein once said, ‘The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.’

It is the poor who habitually elect Democrats……. Yet they are still POOR.

 Part III:

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.

You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence.

You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.”
Abraham Lincoln

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government t take care of him had better take a closer look at the American Indian.”
Henry Ford

Politicians and diapers must be changed often, and for the same reason.

A Look Into The Crystal Ball

For the past five years I have ranted about the evils of socialism, and the dangerous course our country is on with the current leadership. I am preaching to the choir, because I have not changed a single liberal mind. Liberal minds close to the ideas of conservatism. They insist on everyone being totally equal in everything. History clearly shows liberalism fails in every country practicing it.

This morning I took some time to read my e-mails and watch videos sent by friends. One video is striking and reinforces my message about the danger of  socialism. Some of you call it Progressivism, I call it communism. Please invest a few minutes of your precious time to view the video sent to me by my good buddy Ed. If you are liberal, open your mind for just a few minutes while you hear and watch this view of our future.

Slavery to Slavery?

My Flag Flies Everyday

My Flag Flies Everyday

I got to thinking about those trillions the government is throwing at earmark projects called stimulus. I asked myself how many people could a trillion dollars really help?  I looked at three items that people spend money on: house, car, and college education.

Here is how it works out:

1. How many $200,000.00  houses can one buy for a trillion? A two hundred thousand dollar house is probably affordable for most of the population.

ans: Five million

2. How many cars valued at $25,000.00 each? Not a Lexus or Cadillac, but a Ford Focus will get you to where you need to go.

ans: Forty million.

3. How many students could spend $40,000.00 on college tuition?  This one assumes you spend three hundred dollars per credit hour and you require one hundred and thirty credits to get a degree, and live with your parents.

ans: Twenty five  million five hundred thousand.

A trillion dollars given away in this fashion would most likely stimulate the economy. Instead we will direct the money through a filter called “government.”  The end result will be that only a third will get to the consumer. The remainder will be lost in management fees. In big government management fees are more commonly referred to as GRAFT.

What BHO failed to tell the people of the USA is that his redistribution of wealth will make everyone in the country a slave. By robbing the rich to give to the poor, the result will make everyone poor.

The direction of the country toward “Change You Can Believe In,” will bankrupt the treasury. The end result is that the greatest country in the history of the earth will become  a slave to the countries who buy our debt.

Barack likes to compare himself to Abraham Lincoln. While Lincoln freed a small number of the population who were slaves, Barack will enslave the entire country. How will that happen?

We will borrow the money from China or other countries. In order for them to loan us the money, we will have to make it worth their while. We will have to pay higher interest. Higher interest will mean that the government has less money to pay for the programs that they have legislated into law. In other words if it takes a trillion dollars to run the country, we’ll now have to add the interest to that.  Where will the government get the extra money? They have two ways: 1. Pass the expense to the tax payer by increasing his contribution. 2. Print more money to cover the bill. This means that your money is worth less than it was before. I already have trouble making ends meet on my fixed income.

Here is what the interest payment looks like on a trillion dollars:

Interest rate-percent   interest payment
2   20,000,000,000.0
3   30,000,000,000.0
4   40,000,000,000.0
5   50,000,000,000.0
6   60,000,000,000.0
7   70,000,000,000.0
8   80,000,000,000.0
9   90,000,000,000.0
10   100,000,000,000.0

In case you have a problem reading all those zeros, they are billions.

Mark my words, this country is headed for another civil war with the rampant spending under this president. Isn’t civil war another issue that Lincoln had to deal with?

Is Uncle Ted Killing Caroline’s Chances?

My Flag Flies Everyday

My Flag Flies Everyday

I don’t believe the liberal press and their treatment of Caroline Kennedy. One would think that after the way the press kissed Obama’s butt they would welcome Caroline with open arms. I could understand their treatment of Sarah Palin, but not Caroline.  Sarah presented a major threat to the Messiah and they had to annihilate her. They did a fine job of it. Now they are doing the same with Harvard educated liberal minded Caroline. What’s up?  Why is it that an ordinary citizen is not qualified for the job of  U.S. Senator. Barack did it, he wasn’t qualified either, but somehow he got out that stressful job into another. They say that if you have an employees who is totally unqualified, promote him to a new level, and let someone else deal with him. We did that.

Caroline’s only problem is her name. She is definitely linked to her Uncle Ted. We all seem to think that the Kennedy clan is too wealthy  for the rest of us. We want to punish them for being so rich. They don’t have to work for a living so they find nice cushy public service jobs. In their minds they are giving back to the peons.

I heard a news commentator discuss Caroline’s use of too many uhs for a Harvard graduated lawyer. Caroline sounds like a teen ager when she speaks.  The commentators recommendation was to find a good speech coach and work hard.  My recommendation is to let Harvard know they have a problem with their method. If the world expects every Harvard graduate to speak eloquently, the world should expect Harvard to train them to speak eloquently. 

 Since when does eloquent speech qualify a person for the Senate? Is that in the job description? I want someone who can read, and  write, and has some common sense. We don’t need another eloquent speaking lawyer writing laws to invent instituions like Fanni Mae, and Freddie Mac. We need Senators who will reduce the size of the government and let  the people in Washington find  jobs that add to the quality of the economy.

I want a Senator who will make spread sheets on the cost of running government, and then apply the Pareto Principle known as the 80/20 rule. It’s so simple  even a Harvard lawyer can figure it out.  Perhaps the law students should take some courses in the Harvard business school. Eighty percent of the good comes from twenty percent of the activity. That would mean alot of office space in DC becomes available for rent. It also means we would pay eighty percent less taxes.

A good Senator would concentrate on identifying the activities that are in the twenty percent, and work at eliminating the remainder. That is the way companies run their businesses. The principles work in any organization including our sacred government.

Kill the Goose

BO promises to tax the rich to feed the poor. Sounds like Robin Hood to me. He has told us that ninety five percent of us will get a tax cut. Really? Does he have his pants on backwards? Is his knowledge of economics, or worse yet, his common sense so lacking as to believe that we will be better off? Doesn’t he know that the five percent will merely pass their extra taxes down to us. We will see it in the form of higher prices on goods and services. BO will not acknowledge that as his problem, he will blame it on greedy Wall Street corporations, and therby absolve himself of all blame. Socialists do that. They are the root cause of many problems in the world, but fail to take responsibility for any of them. They always their own failures on the greed of capitalism. The USSR gave socialism a try for more than seventy years before they finally gave it up. We all know how screwed up they are. Do we want to be equally screwed?

By taxing the five percent BO will kill the goose that lays the golden egg.

Creating Jobs

Today I listened to BO give a talk in Michigan. He was cheered by a crowd of people whom I suspect were out of work. BO ranted and raved sounding alot like the Reverend Wright. He preached about George Bush’s failure to create jobs. He promised the people of Michigan that he would create jobs for them. Well folks, he’s blowing smoke out his skinny ass. He can no more make jobs than this computer I’m banging on. Oops, I forgot that he can make jobs. He can hire people to work for the government as “Community Organizers.” He can also create a bunch of work administering all the new social programs that his administration plans on instituting. None of these jobs will bring in a single dollar of value to the organization, but they will cost the organization a ton of money.

As BO’s wealth redistribution program dries up the rich, most real jobs will be lost. BO will replace them with organizer positions. Eventually, everyone will be an organizer. Where will the organization get money to pay for us? There will be no real value generated because the “organizers,” won’t have any initiative to work. None of the organizers  will be generating goods and services that could make our lives better. What will happen to all the sales people, medical personnel, engineers, computer programmers, etc? We will not have an incentive to work because we will be so busy organizing each other. We’ll spend our energy trying  to squeeze more benefit from the organization, there will be no money to pay us, but we won’t need pay because organizers working for the organization will be taken care of. If we want something, we’ll just go stand in line and wait for it. If we chose to want a better life, we’ll have to chose to live in another country. We will be too busy trying to squeeze more juice out of the lemon, but the lemon is dry.

The plain and simple fact is people and companies become wealthy by working hard and using their brains for the better good. We need the rich. Without them there is no real economy. The rich are the ones who take chances and invest their money at great risk. Their goal is to make life better with their products and services. The more tax they pay, the less money they have to invest. It is their investment that creates jobs, not BO or any other politician. Contrary to BO’s falacious doctrine, it is the free enterprise system that makes the world go around.

Many countries have adopted socialism as a philosophy. Among them  CUBA, the fomer USSR, and North Korea. Ask their citizens how they like it. Have you ever seen videos of CUBA? Watch for their cars, nearly all of them are nineteen fifties vintage. Why?
