Listening to Obama’s “almost live” speech today on the economy and jobs, I feel compelled to pound out my thoughts and feelings on the keyboard instead of my bedroom wall. President Obama is so hell bent on pushing through his agenda that any credibility he may have had (at least with me) is completely shot.
At the risk of sounding like a “crazy person” or a “wing nut” or a “Teabagger”, I must say that I think he has us right where he wants us… In his book “The Naked Communist”, the author W. Cleon Skousen references the Communist goals for the US - “The United States will fall into our hands like a ripe fruit.” With the collapse of the economy under the Bush presidency and the election of Barack Obama, the U.S. was already in an unfamiliar, vulnerable place. Obama talked the talk of a candidate who embraced the American Dream - has anyone been wondering where that guy went??
Backroom deals, Saturday night votes in the Democrat dominated House and Senate, pork, bribery, porkbribery (see Mary Landrieu’s 300 million dollar payoff for her senate cloture vote), and overall tone-deafness of this administration and Democrats on the hill are the hallmarks of this administration. Chicago-style shakedowns and smear campaigns against voices of opposition (see Organizing for America’s latest campaign to raise 500k to fight “dangerous” Sarah Palin. As a student of history and now a political junkie (since I lost my job I have lots of time on my hands) I feel it would be irresponsible if I did not seek out other examples of what I see daily in the pages of history.
In my opinion, Obama and his minions have read history too… They know exactly what they are doing, and they have enough power and enough “Yes men” in congress to accomplish their leftist goals. While I cannot state exactly where Obama wants to take us, I can confidently say that it is not a good place, and it more closely resembles 1917 Russia and 1920’s and 1930’s Germany than it does the America described in our Pledge of Allegiance or our Constitution.
Compare the various "strategies of manufactured crisis" that the above employed in order to gain total power and control, or to fundamentally transform their governments.
This "jobless recovery" could be eased in several ways. If Obama could halt the healthcare bill and debate, uncertainty in the markets would reside, and fear of a worthless dollar and a bankrupt nation would decrease. This alone would help "create or save" real jobs in the private sector. People and businesses know a big tax hit is coming. They know that the Bush Tax Cuts will expire and not be renewed. They know that if "Climate Change" legislation passes, their cost of doing business, as well as their cost of living will increase substantially. Businesses know that this is a road we don't want to go down. This is why they are tightening their belts in anticipation.
Look at China, India, and other nations...They know that our currency is in trouble, and they know our National Debt is unsustainable. China warned President Obama about the cost of the Healthcare bill, and of our MASSIVE 12+ TRILLION dollar Debt. Gold continues to soar to new highs almost daily.
In the words of Milton Friedman "
"Inflation is taxation without legislation"
Optimistically, I can only hope that Obama thinks that massive taxation is the only way to counter HYPERINFLATION that seems imminent when the Fed FINALLY raises interest rates. I must admit that these days I consider myself a "recovering optimist"... There is OBVIOUS manipulation of our currency and our markets going on RIGHT NOW, and if Obama gave a hoot about the future of our nation his agenda would be one of REAL job creation and REAL fiscal responsibility. I hate to say it, but this DOW over 10,000 business appears to me to me a SUCKER RALLY, and a double dip recession (depression) is on its way.
Of course, when speaking to my liberal "friends", I am just a nutty teabagger that needs to "check my facts". I would LOVE to....IF ONLY I COULD FIND A RELIABLE SOURCE!
