The Triumph of Capitalism over Collectivism

This is the true Thanksgiving story. Not what you will find in the PC liberal texts our kids are being given in school.

As Governor Bradford explained in his old English (though with the spelling modernized):

“For the young men that were able and fit for labor and service did repine that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men’s wives and children, without recompense. The strong, or men of parts, had no more division of food, clothes, etc. then he that was weak and not able to do a quarter the other could; this was thought injustice. The aged and graver men to be ranked and equalized in labor, and food, clothes, etc. with the meaner and younger sort, thought it some indignant and disrespect unto them. And for men’s wives to be commanded to do service for other men, as dressing their meat, washing their clothes, etc. they deemed it a kind of slavery, neither could man husbands brook it.”

“And so assigned to every family a parcel of land, according to the proportion of their number for that end. . . .This had a very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted then otherwise would have been by any means the Governor or any other could use, and saved him a great deal of trouble, and gave far better content. The women now went willingly into the field, and took their little-ones with them to set corn, which before would a ledge weakness, and inability; whom to have compelled would have been thought great tyranny and oppression.”

“By this time harvest was come, and instead of famine, now God gave them plenty, and the face of things was changed, to the rejoicing of the hearts of many, for which they blessed God. And the effect of their planting was well seen, for all had, one way or other, pretty well to bring the year about, and some of the abler sort and more industrious had to spare, and sell to others, so as any general want or famine hath not been amongst them since to this day.”

“The experience that was had in this common course and condition, tried sundry years, and that amongst the Godly and sober men, may well convince of the vanity and conceit of Plato’s and other ancients; — that the taking away of property, and bringing into a common wealth, would make them happy and flourishing; as if they were wiser than God. For this community (so far as it was) was found to breed confusion and discontent, and retard much employment that would have been to their benefit and comfort.”

Staten Island shoplifters, beware: ‘Tis definitely better to give than deceive this holiday season.
Shoppers caught filling their stockings (or anything else) with stolen merchandise could find their faces flashing every six minutes on electronic billboards in the Staten Island Mall. The first-of-its-kind program – initially to feature five convicted Staten Island shoplifters – will run through Christmas.
“I wanted to do something just to warn people who might have ideas about shoplifting,” said Staten Island District Attorney Dan Donovan, whose office created the program. “With economic times hard, more people might consider doing this. We just want people to be forewarned.”

This is true and even though I will have little effect on ABC News revenue I do plan on being careful to not view any program that is on ABC and boycott, if at all possible, the sponsors of ABC. Barbara Walters said that this was going to hurt ABC badly. As you know she works for ABC.

This should make your blood boil…it DOES mine!

ABC NEWS BANS FLAG LAPEL PINS!

YESTERDAY THE BRASS AT ABC NEWS ISSUED ORDERS FORBIDDING REPORTERS TO WEAR LAPEL PIN AMERICAN FLAGS OR OTHER PATRIOTIC INSIGNIA. THEIR REASONING WAS THAT ABC SHOULD REMAIN NEUTRAL ABOUT ‘CAUSES’.

SINCE WHEN IS SUPPORT FOR PREVENTING DEATH AND DESTRUCTION SOME SORT OF A ‘CAUSE’? SINCE WHEN IS PATRIOTISM TO BE DISCOURAGED?

I URGE YOU TO BOYCOTT ABC AND ITS SPONSORS AND AFFILIATES. WE ARE SLOWLY LOSING EVERYTHING OUR COUNTRY STANDS FOR AND EVERYTHING OUR MEN AND WOMEN FOUGHT AND DIED TO PRESERVE!
THIS ONE NEEDS TO GET OUT IF IT HASN’T ALREADY!

Save Your 401-K Don’t Allow The Government to Get Their Hands On It

We all know about how the government wants to ‘Bail Out’ certain financial institutions. They want to do this by actually buying pieces of companies rather than just offer government secured or insured loans. This hugh bundle of our (taxpayers) hard earned money is even now being eyed by everyone and his uncle wanting their own piece of the action. On Monday they will begin considering payback to the UAW, a long time Democrat Party contributor.

When the government gets their mitts into anything it’s all but impossible to get them to let go. They just get more and more bold. They will want to take control of other areas of our lives.

The House Education and Labor Committee has been holding hearings on how the government can take control of your 401-K retirement accounts.

Teresa Ghilarducci, professor of economic-policy analysis at the New School for Social Research in New York, has been explaining how and why she thinks the government can do this.

She said “I’ve got a better plan. What we want to do, we want to take your 401(k) at its August level, before the crash. We’ll give you that equivalent and put it in your Social Security account, essentially, and we’re going to invest that money that we take from your retirement account, your 401(k), at its August level. We’re going to buy government bonds with it, which will guarantee you 3% — and then we will require that you put 5% of your pay into your 401(k) although it’s not yours anymore. The government owns it. They will manage it. They will take care of it, and then when your retirement day comes you’ll get your Social Security check and part of your check will be whatever your 401(k) monthly payout is, after 3% of growth every year under the stewardship of the government. ”

The main reason most Americans want their own retirement accounts is simple. We see how well the government has managed such things like Social Security and Medicare. The so called Social Security lock-box where your contributions are ‘kept’ doesn’t and has never existed. The money goes into the general fund and is used to pay current debts.

George Miller, who runs a congressional committee, Democrat in California, came out with the first notion of just getting rid of your being able to deduct form your income your contribution to your 401(k), that the government is “losing” $80 billion and we can’t afford lose that so they want to take that away.

George Miller seems to believe, as most liberal Democrats in Washington DC do, that all money in the country belongs to government. They then think that they should decide how much money you need.

A well known east coast Democrat recently said that he doesn’t understand why so many people have the simplistic notion that people who have earned accumulated wealth should be able to keep it.

This is simply socialism. Socialism with its strict government control over all facets of a nations economy always ends with the same result. Failure and poverty. This is the most prosperous country the world has ever know. Why do people want to turn it into a third world country. That’s simple. Under socialism, only the politicians have any wealth and a good standard of living.

Lets Give Our New President Elect a Chance

November 8, 2008

Most people who voted for Obama had no idea who he was or what he was. I guess the media did a good job selling him. McCain, although he is a good man, wasn’t picked by republicans to run. He was picked by Democrat crossover voters in states who allow non party members to vote under any ticket they want. After they did that they went back to their Democrat home. McCain is no conservative. He doesn’t seem to realize that when a republican walks across the aisle to work with Democrats they break your leg. If you reach across the aisle they break your arm. Their idea of bi-partisanship is simple. You give up your principals and do what we want. Coming together to them means that you compromise your ideas and accept theirs.

The biggest danger, even if Republicans regain control of congress in two years, will be all the judicial appointments that will be made in that time. I only hope that they will be unable to stack the supreme court with liberal appointments. FDR had 20 years to stack the court and it took a lifetime to turn it around.

Of course we must not be too cruel to our new president. We should not call him a liar.

We should not call him a liar when he said he wanted to bankrupt the coal industry.

We should not call him a liar when he said utility bills would skyrocket because of the coal industry being regulated and taxed to death.

We should not call him a liar when he said he wanted to redistribute the wealth.

We should not call him a liar when he said he wanted to replace the military with a civillian force.

We should not call him a liar when he said he wanted to meet with Iran without preconditions.

We should not call him a liar when he said he wanted to invade Pakistan.
We should not call Biden a liar when he said that supreme court appointments should be made based more on the nominees philosophical views than on their judicial temperment. Can you say litmus test?

Hold onto your money belt we are in for a five ticket ride.

I could go on and on but I think you get the point.
