This is a real good one.  Is it Democrats (or socialists) against the free enterprise system?  Obama are you watching.  If you are a Democrat and you say you are not a socialist–good for you but you had better look at what your party has become.

We all know that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed in August 1945 after explosion of atomic bombs.
However, we know little about the progress made by the people 
of that land during the past 64 years.

>State Capitalism:China Practices And Obama Aspires

>If you cannot get people to change, change the term to a new term so you can fool the people.  I.E. Socialism to State Capitalism.

State Capitalism

There is a lot of talk these days about “state capitalism”. What is it?
The best definition is perhaps, “a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.”
In other words, it is textbook socialism. 
But just as liberals now call themselves progressives, they now call socialism “state capitalism”.
Socialism is largely inefficient because the state does not have to worry about shareholders, profits, employees, or any of the rest. The state merely raises taxes and places the money in the hands of unelected and largely unaccountable bureaucrats.
And who practices “state capitalism”? China and other communist countries.
The left will descend into a lot of chest beating over this, but the facts and definitions speak for themselves. To roughly quote Obama, “words mean something.” And “state capitalism” means “socialism.”
The left is targeting corporations and other private sector job producers as evil and corrupt because they want to undermine capitalism and move us to socialism.
Barack Obama is a socialist. And the public is starting to see where things are headed and really does not like it.

>Stop Obama’s Runaway Health Care Spending Train

>America now has the best health care in the world. Yes, there are people in America who have no health care — but there are agencies and medical services available even for these people to receive health care, even if they can’t pay for it.

We have many different private plans we can subscribe to. We can choose the best one for us and our families. All are not the same. See, we don’t have a single payer system in America. . . not yet, but Obama is herding us in that direction even if he says he isn’t. So on all of my blogs I am spearheading a drive to get people to call their congressmen, send emails, letters, and complain about the new proposed VAT tax which is a silent, hidden tax on everything.

VAT means Value Added Tax, but let me assure you, there is no “value added” in any tax. It’s just another way by Obama to make us look like Europe. Don’t allow it. Get Washington off our backs. Obama also is suggesting a new sales tax on drinks of all kinds — even sugar drinks. He knows this country is bankrupt but he wants to jab the knife into all of us one more time, and even twist it going in. Don’t let all this to happen to you, and to your friends and family. Click here and read my blog on Angst Blogger and vote against more taxes.

>Musings From Maytown: Craziness of The Auto Bailout

>

The Craziness of the Auto Bailout

Tonight, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 237-170 to use taxpayers funds for a downpayment on a recovery program for the failing auto industry. Alabama’s US Senator Richard Shelby is leading the opposition to the bailout. Shelby declares that the total cost of the bailout will easily exceed $100 billion. The late Samuel Francis often quipped that the United States has two political parties: the Evil Party and the Stupid Party. Occasionally, you see a true bi-partisan effort and you can count on that bi-partisanship involving both evil and stupidity.
This bailout package was passed with pressure from the Democratic leadership in the House and the influence of the Bush White House. While Democrats supported the package by a 205-20 margin while Republicans actually opposed this corporate welfare program by a 150-32 margin. Among Alabama Congressmen, all Republicans (Bonner, Rogers, Aderholt, and Bachus) voted No except the retiring Terry Everett who was not present for the vote. Democrat Artur Davis voted No while retiring Democrat Bud Cramer voted Yes.
This vote is a clear-cut example of pragmatism winning over principle. The United States became the wealthiest nation in the history of humanity by freeing enterprise to take risks and make investments. But the bottom line is that investment is made by those who obtain capital. The reward of earnings comes from those who either work to provide a good or service, or those who invest in that good or service, so that another can work. Investment creates wealth, hence creates jobs.
When a government entity subsidizes failure, then that failing industry is rewarded for failure. That industry can continue to fail, and the advantage that industry gains by the subsidy gives a disadvantage to those who have produced successfully.
By this subsidy, we reward a poor job. Eventually, this action will drive up prices and drive down quality.
But the pragmatic approach is to offer the temporary band-aid of federal subsidy. This approach wins temporary cheers from the special interests connected to the automobile industry.
American economists need to consider why the US Big Three Automakers are not competing on the international market. Is our tax structure negative toward investment? Are regulations making productivity difficult? The answer to the auto dilemma is not more government subsidies, but less government involvement in the free market. Back in 1958, Robert Welch said that under free enterprise, you always have to hire more salesmen to sell off the surplus, but in socialism, you hire more bureaucrats to divide up the shortage. Now, we are talking about a Car Czar to regulate the use of the bailout funds. The free market is the best measure of that which will fail or succeed in our economy. Selective subsidy is propping up failure and penalizing success.
Readers of Musings from Maytown are urged to call the local offices of their respective US Senators and urge them to vote NO on this ridiculous bailout plan.

>Almost Overnight America’s Come From Capitalism to Socialism

Communism – Are We There Yet?

Derek Powask of the Why Perspective begins his site’s best blog in October, 2008 by saying: “We have fought wars over which one is better [Cummunism or Capitalism]. We have created opinions on which type of government is better. We have even created analogies to buying and selling cows. The problem is, neither one is better than the other. They just have different times and places to work.”

Derek believes that Communism is an equality program, but that everything is free. You see, the means of production – like socialism – belong to the government. “You work, I work, and we can exchange goods. This allows the people to live an easy lifestyle without ever having to worry about the problems associated with currency or economy. The person who can makes shoes creates them for the community and puts them into the market. Essiantly, everything in Communism is free.”

Important news flash! Nothing is free, my naive friend. You must give up something to get something else. That’s a basic law of nature. I also take issue with his idea that under Communism “the people live an easy lifestyle …” Ask the millions of former Communists who went to bed hungry each night if they lived an easy lifestyle.

Ask the moms and pops who tried to rear their children in a communal atmosphere. I’ve been there, I’ve seen how they were living when I visited Moscow and St. Petersburg (Lenningrad) in 1961. We visited an apartment house and saw that the most important room of the house had two or three sinks and stoves. Three or four families used this kitchen together. Each family had one room for the rest of their activity, including sleeping. Can you imagine living that way?

My older brothers and sisters grew up poor in Utah and we didn’t know it. We always had everything we needed, especially loving and hardworking parents. I can’t say enough good about my parents. We lived in a two-room home (until Dad excavated by hand the basement and made two more bedrooms). But in those two bedrooms were five of us.

My older brother and I slept in a small bedroom, in a bed together. That was way before the era of queen-size or king-size beds. Dad and Mom were in the adjacent small bedroom, and at the foot of their bed was my younger sister who slept there until she was 13 when the basement became available for us two older boys, freeing up that back bedroom for my sister.

You want to know poor? I’ll tell you about being poor in America and I didn’t like it. I wore cast off clothing, anything my fantastic parents could find for each of us, because Dad didn’t make a lot of money. Yet we were happy. As time progressed we grew with the growing post-World War II economy and things gradually got better. The thee youngest children of this family of eight didn’t have it so bad. Don’t tell them I said it, but it’s true.

After I left in 1958, they went on vacations each summer to Disneyland in California. The first time I went to California was to do my basic training at Fort Ord, in Monterey, which has now been razed and replaced by some beautiful housing areas. Thems were the good-old days.

Back to Communism. Russians, Poles, and Checkoslovakians did not appreciate Communism. Neither did the East Germans, they hated it. They were poor while the West was prospering. Our country’s military might didn’t knock down the Berlin Wall, Communism’s failure to provide basic goods and services for its people knocked it down.

Ronald Reagan took credit for it, and rightly so. Had he not been so adamant in building up our military, in telling Mikail Gorbechev to “tear down that wall.,” it may not have happened. But the U.S. won the Cold War and in 2009 America is losing the war on terror and the Economic War because we had George Bush and Hank Paulson in office in 2008 and now we have a true socialist in office, Barak Obama and a wishy-washy, failed Treasury secretary, Tim Gaithner. He’s so innane he can’t even tell reporters what is happening to our economy or if the trillions we’ve spent are doing any good. Fire the man if he’s that incompetent!

Obama’s goal seems to be to bankrupt America and “change” America for the worse. He doesn’t have a love of America or its people. The prescription for defeat of our beautiful way of life was embodied in the way Paulson handled the economic downturn in March, 2008.

His first mistake was drastically cutting the Discount Rate, the rate the Fed charges banks to borrow money, from 5.25% to 2%. That was a catastrophic error. It completely weakened the dollar and brought about soaring oil prices that peaked at $140 per barrel until diminished demand put it in a freefall to under $40. Gas prices were up around $4.00 per gallon and dropped to about $1.50 for regular in many states. It has rebounded to about $2.00 a gallon on today’s date.

Now the Obama Gang, under the direction of a very poor economist, Timoth Gaithner, has done all the wrong things, compounded Bush’s errors of feeding this gas fire with “water” or spending, making things even worse. The double wammy trillion-dollar rescue plans Obama has going, on top of Bush’s trillion-dollar TARP money, means we’ll have a whopping $3.5 trillion dollars thrown at the problem. Money we’ll have to borrow from China. But I’ve got news – even China doesn’t loan that kind of money. That means we’ll resort to the old fashion way of producing money – printing new bills.

That means retirements of people are going to wither away. Wages will stay the same but you won’t be able to buy as much with a dollar. Rapid spiraling commodity inflation will become commonplace.

I hope in a few years we don’t have to look back on how well we live today and say; “Those were the good old days.”

A friend just sent this to us.  Please take the time to read it.  Also, the attached slide presentation is very worthwhile.  A close look at this so called Stimulus Package is a classical example of how misleading titles can be. Under the guise of ‘stimulus’ they load up the bill with socialistic programs.   They then prey on the fears, urgency and panic of the public to insist these programs are passed.  The public is beginning to see what this bill is all about so are asking their congressmen not to pass it.  Hence more pressure from the president to pass it quickly.  They will vote Monday.  Quickly write to your senators.  What we really need is a tax holiday and then lower corporate taxes in the future.  The US has the highest corporate taxes in the world.  This would put some back to work and slow down out sourcing.  The housing mess, caused by Barney Frank and Chris Dood also needs to be fixed. We don’t need more programs and bigger government.

Folks,
 
Many people may think I am a doomsayer.  I know that I am driven by a relentless pursuit of the truth.  I’m now living about 11 miles from Purcellville Va. and Michael Farris.  This place is the U.S. Headquarters for Home Schoolers.  I know that our government has turned our schools into rein-doctrine camps of political correctness and socialism.  Just look at our rankings worldwide in K-12.  Edmund Burke of the “old School” said this:  All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”
 
The least I can do is to warn my neighbors and those who have impacted my life in one way or another.  ” For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it might cost, I am willing to know the whole truth, and provide for it.”  Thank you Patrick Henry for reminding me of my sacred duty as a Patriot. 
 
 You are going to love the slide show I have attached.  Perhaps you will come to a knowledge of how we have arrived at where we are and how we got here. (If you don’t already know)  As I have said so many time in so many ways: we are witnessing the systematic dismantling of our Republic, Constitution, Bill of Rights, Equality Under the Law, Free Market Enterprise, our Culture, Family and Morality.  I like the anology of frogs in a pot of warming water.  Gradually they are cooked.

THE NEW WORLD DISORDER
United Nations‘ threat: No more parental rights
Expert: Pact would ban spankings, homeschooling if children object

A United Nations human rights treaty that could prohibit children from being spanked or homeschooled, ban youngsters from facing the death penalty and forbid parents from deciding their families’ religion is on America’s doorstep, a legal expert warns.
Michael Farris of Purcellville, Va., is president of ParentalRights.org, chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association and chancellor of Patrick Henry College. He told WND that under the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child, or CRC, every decision a parent makes can be reviewed by the government to determine whether it is in the child’s best interest.
“It’s definitely on our doorstep,” he said. “The left wants to make the Obama-Clinton era permanent. Treaties are a way to make it as permanent as stuff gets. It is very difficult to extract yourself from a treaty once you begin it. If they can put all of their left-wing socialist policies into treaty form, we’re stuck with it even if they lose the next election.”
The 1990s-era document was ratified quickly by 193 nations worldwide, but not the United States or Somalia. In Somalia, there was then no recognized government to do the formal recognition, and in the United States there’s been opposition to its power. Countries that ratify the treaty are bound to it by international law.
Although signed by Madeleine Albright, U.S. ambassador to the U.N., on Feb. 16, 1995, the U.S. Senate never ratified the treaty, largely because of conservatives’ efforts to point out it would create that list of rights which primarily would be enforced against parents.
The international treaty creates specific civil, economic, social, cultural and even economic rights for every child and states that “the best interests of the child shall be a primary consideration.” It is monitored by the CRC, which conceivably has enforcement powers.
According to the Parental Rights website, the substance of the CRC dictates the following:

  • Parents would no longer be able to administer reasonable spankings to their children.
  • A murderer aged 17 years, 11 months and 29 days at the time of his crime could no longer be sentenced to life in prison.
  • Children would have the ability to choose their own religion while parents would only have the authority to give their children advice about religion.
  • The best interest of the child principle would give the government the ability to override every decision made by every parent if a government worker disagreed with the parent’s decision.
  • A child’s “right to be heard” would allow him (or her) to seek governmental review of every parental decision with which the child disagreed.
  • According to existing interpretation, it would be illegal for a nation to spend more on national defense than it does on children’s welfare.
  • Children would acquire a legally enforceable right to leisure.
  • Teaching children about Christianity in schools has been held to be out of compliance with the CRC.
  • Allowing parents to opt their children out of sex education has been held to be out of compliance with the CRC.
  • Children would have the right to reproductive health information and services, including abortions, without parental knowledge or consent.

“Where the child has a right fulfilled by the government, the responsibilities shift from parents to the government,” Farris said. “The implications of all this shifting of responsibilities is that parents no longer have the traditional roles of either being responsible for their children or having the right to direct their children.”

The government would decide what is in the best interest of a children in every case, and the CRC would be considered superior to state laws, Farris said. Parents could be treated like criminals for making every-day decisions about their children’s lives.
“If you think your child shouldn’t go to the prom because their grades were low, the U.N. Convention gives that power to the government to review your decision and decide if it thinks that’s what’s best for your child,” he said. “If you think that your children are too young to have a Facebook account, which interferes with the right of communication, the U.N. gets to determine whether or not your decision is in the best interest of the child.”
He continued, “If you think your child should go to church three times a week, but the child wants to go to church once a week, the government gets to decide what it thinks is in the best interest of the children on the frequency of church attendance.”
He said American social workers would be the ones responsible for implementation of the policies.
Farris said it could be easier for President Obama to push for ratification of the treaty than it was for the Clinton administration because “the political world has changed.”
At a Walden University presidential debate last October, Obama indicated he may take action.
“It’s embarrassing to find ourselves in the company of Somalia, a lawless land,” Obama said. “I will review this and other treaties to ensure the United States resumes its global leadership in human rights.”
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been a strong supporter of the CRC, and she now has direct control over the treaty’s submission to the Senate for ratification. The process requires a two-thirds vote.
Farris said Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., claimed in a private meeting just before Christmas that the treaty would be ratified within two years.
In November, a group of three dozen senior foreign policy figures urged Obama to strengthen U.S. relations with the U.N. Among other things, they asked the president to push for Senate approval of treaties that have been signed by the U.S. but not ratified.
Partnership for a Secure America Director Matthew Rojansky helped draft the statement. He said the treaty commands strong support and is likely to be acted on quickly, according to an Inter Press Service report.
While he said ratification is certain to come up, Farris said advocates of the treaty will face fierce opposition.
“I think it is going to be the battle of their lifetime,” he said. “There’s not enough political capital in Washington, D.C., to pass this treaty. We will defeat it.”
