The Nanny States of America

February 27, 2008 5 comments

Admit it, you need big government to tell you and the rest of your family how to live.

  • You need to allow government to buy health insurance for you because you don’t know how to do this on your own.

  • You need to take all the vaccination shots and medication they say, even if it poses a risk to you.

  • You need to raise your children as they say or be forced to give them up.

  • You need to be bailed out of your mortgage if you can’t make the payments.

  • You need to be taxed on most of your income because you don’t know how to spend your money.

  • You need to agree with government surveillance of its citizens.

  • You need to check with the government with anything you want to do to your property.

  • You need to check with your government for anything you want to do for your business.

  • You need to never ingest any substance unless approved by the FDA.

  • You need to never practice free speech on any broadcast unless approved by the FCC.

  • You need to do your part to pay for failed businesses that went bankrupt.

  • You need to accept inflation so government can protect you.
  • You need to allow for government to do as they wish when they wish.

Remember, you know nothing and government knows what is best for all of us.

We Have Rights?

February 26, 2008 Leave a comment

It’s not a good sign when people don’t even know why we have the Bill of Rights. Why is it that most people are unaware or reluctant to understand The Constitution? Some people say it’s an old document that doesn’t reflect the current times. I say to them the reason the document was written was solely to protect individuals over government. Our founders clearly understood oppressive government regimes. You see, government always has the advantage because they control everything. What do you control? Yourself? Without the Bill of Rights the government would take that away from you too. Sort of like what is happening now. The government invades people’s lives more and more each year. I think the reason for this epidemic is obvious. People are not aware of their rights because not enough focus is given to it in schools and the media. Government will continue to take advantage of this until people start learning why we have this document. At some point please read: The Constitution , Bill of Rights

End the Middle East War

February 26, 2008 Leave a comment

CNN reported today that Republican presidential candidate John McCain defended his belief that U.S. troops will need to stay in Iraq for decades Monday but said the unpopular war will soon end “for all intents and purposes.”

It’s time to put an end to the war in the Middle East NOW! There is nothing that can be done to bring the sort of democracy our government is looking for. I no longer believe that democracy is what they are looking for anyhow. I also no longer believe that they are there to fight terrorism. This is deep rooted war stretching back to WWII and the remaining tyrannical regimes that took over afterward. These regimes are reluctant to fall in line with the rest of the free world. They hold on to tribal mentalities that reward no one and oppress everyone. More reason to move on. We can’t be the world police. We cant change any belief by force and should never have or want too.

Although, I can’t stand the tyrannical regimes that thrive in this region of the world, I would rather see our troops back home where they belong. We have no true threats in this world and fighting abroad does nothing but create more potential enemies. Not only would bringing our troops home make a safer America, it would also save us trillions of dollars. We need to bring a focus back on the economy before we end up in another Great Depression.

Boom in Dubai

February 22, 2008 2 comments

How does a country like the UAE all of a sudden become one fastest growing economies in the world? I mean it can’t be that easy for businesses to grow in a country with laws that oppress every man, woman, and child within it’s borders. Maybe I am going out on a limb, but the growth I see happening there is disproportionate to the recession the rest of the world is experiencing. I guess war really can be profitable for some. Especially for defense contractors and oil companies largely owned by the UAE.

Carbon Credit Fraud

February 19, 2008 Leave a comment

Why should I pay anything additional for the vehicle I drive besides gasoline, insurance, and license fees? – that’s more than enough for me. Any fool that proposes a tax of any kind based upon some sort of emission is crazy (voluntary or not). I have no other affordable options for a vehicle that pollutes less. So to punish people for having the best available option is ridiculous. Please study the rules of supply and demand. Most people will buy the most cost effective vehicle on the market, and yes fuel efficiency is one of the factors. If a ‘so called’ cleaner emission vehicle was available, but costs too damn much, then it isn’t very efficient to me is it? Efficiency is a balance of energy input as well as output. Carbon dioxide is just a small fraction of the equation. You have to account for all the other hidden resources that have to go into the production and purchase of that product. R&D is the main reason the ‘cleaner emission’ vehicles are not readily available at a reasonable price for the mass market. These costs will come down normally just like computers, and other electronics did once the market figures out how to maximize on consumer cost/benefit. But, you can’t force this to happen by a tax. All this would do is delay these vehicles from ever becoming affordable. Special Interest groups love this scam however, they want to take advantage of the ‘global warming’ fad that has caught this country by storm. So if you are willing to give them your money, I am sure they are happy to accept it. Just don’t expect they will do what you think with the money or even help one bit with environmental issues.
