For those who continue to say that the free market failed us the rest of us have to understand that they do not know what a free market is. In fact none of us have ever experienced a free market system in our life time. With subsidy’s given to farmers prices are set artificially rather then by a free market system. When companies like GM fail because of bad decisions made by management and bad union contracts a free market system would let them fail not bail them out with tax payer money. Failure is not a bad thing and is the key component to success. A company that fails shows others what should not be done and allows other companies to step up and take their place. There is something called “bankruptcy” that can be used by a company like GM to start over and leave its bad polices and contracts behind. Read More
Hillary Clinton, after claiming that “The rich are not paying their fair share”, puts her money where her mouth is and donated $10 to Pakistan food relief. I guess that after throwing a wedding for her daughter that had a cost of around $2 million dollars she felt she had to show that she still cares about the little people. After all we would all like to be rich someday and have the opportunity to throw our children million dollar weddings and donate $10 to a charity. Oh wait many of us already send money to charity and many of us who do not have millions in the bank send $10 or more to charity each year. It makes you wonder if these progressives mean the rich other than themselves should pay their fair share. Read More
No not the unmanned spacecraft that was supposed to dock with the space station the progress that progressives promised would be the change Americans wanted and needed. They passed a health care bill that nobody wanted and that none of them read. Companies will hold off on hiring anyone who would fall into the new subsidized insurance pool because they would be penalized for doing so. This will make getting a job all the more difficult for those who need jobs the most. Oh, I almost forgot about the fact they are saying now they may have to exclude sick people from the Obama Care high risk pool. I thought making sure that Obama care was supposed to make sure those who needed healthcare could get healthcare. Read the Full Article
The United Nations abandons the U.S. dollar as the main global reserve currency. I guess Obama ]and his spend, spend, spend philosophy is not sitting to well with other countries. Other countries now can see that progressives are running the United States into the ground and they want no part of the dollar anymore. Obama and the progressives have set the stage for hyper inflation to take hold of the U.S. dollar and everyone sees the writing on the wall. The progressives have looted our treasury and sent a lot of money overseas. There plan to pass cap and trade will only add to the fall of the dollar and the U.S. as a whole. The unsustainable welfare programs and the passing of National Health Care has us on track to become the next banana republic. The progressive agendas are flawed were flawed and will always be flawed but it was nice of them to give it one last try in time to bankrupt our country. The progressives won a the federal credit card last election and have maxed it out in less than two years. Our credit line is about to be cut off and the progressive plan will be to tax the hell out of people and businesses to try to pay some of it off. But like everyone who is addicted to spending they will simply use the taxes to fund more projects rather than get their finances in order. The higher taxes will bleed businesses dry and consumers will not be able to afford to be consumers anymore. The 2010 elections may be to far down the road to help us.
