Breaking: A New Black Hole is Discovered and It’s Sucking up the Private Sector!!!

 

Black Hole

What is a Black Hole? Per www.Space.com:

Black holes are some of the strangest and most fascinating objects found in outer space. They are objects of extreme density, with such strong gravitational attraction that even light cannot escape from their grasp if it comes near enough. When a star burns through the last of its fuel, it may find itself collapsing. For smaller stars, up to about three times the sun’s mass, the new core will be a neutron star or a white dwarf. But when a larger star collapses, it continues to fall in on itself to create a stellar black hole.

Black holes formed by the collapse of individual stars are (relatively) small, but incredibly dense. Such an object packs three times or more the mass of the sun into a city-sized range. This leads to a crazy amount of gravitational force pulling on objects around it. Black holes consume the dust and gas from the galaxy around them, growing in size.

For non-Trekkies or Charlie Brown listening in class, this translates to:

The Black Hole is the federal government which has such extreme power, with such strong gravitational attraction that even Republican lawmakers can’t escape from its grasp if it comes near enough to reform. When the private sector burns through the last of it’s energy to fight the regulations, it continues to fall in on itself to create a stellar bleak economy like a depression.

Black holes formed by the collapse of small businesses are (relatively) small, but incredibly destructive. Such an object has to compete with a Leviathan when now, one out of every four dollars spent in the economy now comes from the government. This leads to a crazy amount of gravitational force from the government pulling on the economy around it. Black holes  the government consumes the dollars from the private businesses as well as the will from the people around them, growing in size until the private sector is sucked into oblivion. Poof!

Science and Economy 101 all wrapped up in one easy lesson! But of course the Left and MSM are already blaming the non-sequitur sequester for the dismal March job numbers but that’s science fiction unlike my explanation. Businesses small and large can’t compete with an entity that’s supposed to be neutral in a free-market society much less an adversary. The government is consuming 25% of the economy! The largest star is the federal government and when it collapses it will create a stellar black hole unlike anything we’ve ever seen. Or not, if I’m wrong but why test the laws of economics and science? We’ve seen this fate: Greece, Cyprus, Japan, Ancient Rome and the list of failed economies and empires goes on and on.

Of course Obamacare could be the real giant known as a “supermassive” black hole that will become the center of government gravitational pull that will literally tear the economy apart. According to NASA, supermassive black holes are the result of a chain reaction, kind of like Obamacare and the new 11M citizens will do to healthcare, doctors, jobs and people’s lives since will it effect 1/6th of our economy.

As I’ve said here before, the system is rigged and the average income people are getting squeezed every day. No one in government is looking out for regular Americans that just want to work, live and love life. The only way I see of getting out of the black hole is to eliminate the massive regulations and abolish the tax code. Two, maybe three, easy steps:

1. Make it super easy to start a business. In today’s environment, it is so cumbersome with all the permits and agencies that it takes forever. Some here will recall this post I wrote before the 2012 election and thought I was crazy, in a good way, when I described how Gov. Fortuno eliminated the process to start a business from a requirement of obtaining 28 permits and 20 or more different agencies to just one agency for a permit you can get one online.

If other agencies have to get approval from other agencies rather than the entrepreneur, isn’t that what we pay them to do? Why can’t we simplify our system? Better competition and faster to market are good things or so they used to be traits of a thriving economy. Hello more immigrant small business starters and welcome to land of opportunity!

2. The current tax code needs to be scrapped, not reformed. It is such a convoluted intertwined mess that it can’t be untangled with a few tweaks here or there. As Stossel said tonight on “The Chosen One”, the current system is one whereby lawmakers pick and choose who will support them and who will vote for them (I’m paraphrasing), but lawmakers pick and choose who gets a tax subsidy or a burden. A Flat Tax by definition eliminates all the special interest groups, lobbyists, loopholes, crony capitalists and out-of-control spending by lawmakers that kowtow to the loudest and most able in a position to fund their political coffers.

My favorite plan is from Heritage.org: “The New Flat Tax—Easy as One, Two, Three”. It is so simple that it will make the whole debate on tax and spend irrelevant which I guess the powers to be don’t want or else they would implement it for the People.

3. If one lives on a houseboat off the shores, say in international waters like the blokes on Pirate Radio, are they immune from the black hole? Yes hurricanes may be just as strong of a gravitational pull but is it legal and worth the risk? Just curious if it’s an option against the gravitational pull of the Blob aka the Leviathan. Any advice?

Return of the Jedi small government is our only course. If we can’t forge ahead to a new frontier called the past pillars of fiscal sanity, then I say, beam me up Scotty!*

*Sorry for the space talk as I’m not really a fan of sci-fi but got sucked in by the black hole analogy since it was irresistible and apropos. I never saw The Return of the Jedi but was a big NASA fan and find it depressing that we now have to hitch hike a ride with the Russians for a space lift when they were our foe that motivated us in the first place. My how times have changed and I was just a young child then watching with big eyes in awe with my family as our astronauts landed on the moon.
