Time to Break Out the Tar & Feathers

Right wing pundits are fond of saying that B Hussein means no harm, but is simply mistaken in his economics and his ability to govern.

They're wrong.

Obama has no moral compass--or at least his moral compass' magnetism has gone away by means of his having mentors who have no regard for individual rights and property. He has assumed the posture of a sort of demigod-king who believes that the Constitution is a pain in the ass he has to sidestep, Congress is his tool, and the people of the united States and the world are serfs who must be controlled and protected. Mostly controlled.

The conservatives, having very shaky moral compasses themselves, are wrong. Most of them don't want to be too severe in their criticism because any one of them might find himself in the driver's seat himself, one day. Also, conservatives in office are mostly spineless oafs being led by the rings in their noses by the leftists.

B Hussein Obama is systematically and deliberately trying to destroy America.

B Hussein Obama is taking the (admittedly very flawed) American capitalist system apart. He's destroying individuals' ability to be productive with ever higher taxes, ever increasing regulation and by placing industry deeply in debt to government in order to be able to exert even more control over it. When it happened in Germany, we called it Nazism. We can't call it that though, because Obama isn't killing people. Yet.

He is, though, beginning to scapegoat. Scapegoating is the act of demonizing a segment of society by way of blaming that group for the nation's ills. By referring to the Tea Party demonstrators as racists and potential terrorists, he's beginning to set up the machinery. By sending up trial balloons, using university stooges to abridge free speech, he's undermining the 1st Amendment. By borrowing and spending (wasting) trillions of dollars he's deliberately placing the country in the position of being in a financial hole from which it can never escape. These are steps toward a goal that bodes nothing but ill for us all.

Obama's policies will reduce the united States to the level of a second-rate or a third-rate country, financially, and they will reduce Americans to the level of wards of the state.

Advocates of freedom vary as to what might stop this treason. Some would like their own state to secede and return to being an independent State. This would be wonderful if the new State doesn't become a little dictatorship of its own. The citizens of this state will need to guard against making the same mistakes made by the US federal government. They'll have to commit themselves to laissez-faire capitalism and an absolute right to life, liberty and property, and strict adherence to the Non Aggression Principle by government as well as by each individual.

Meanwhile, many individuals are retiring early or just quitting (shrugging) to avoid feeding the monster in Mordor DC. I find this appealing, and happen to be setting myself up for retirement very soon--this in spite of the fact that I love productive work. It's hard to quit, but perhaps a small sandwich shop in Carson City isn't the worst way to retire.

While we all can agree that paying taxes is just an enabling mechanism, and should be avoided, no one wants to spend their valuable time in government shackles.

Whatever is to your taste, and whatever your genius can devise, find a way to stop feeding the monster, and simultaneously stay out of the line of fire. Best of luck!

Remember: VOTE FOR NO INCUMBENT!

You pretty much hit it on the head, why it took you so long to post is a whole other story I'm sure.

TF,

I do spend a lot of computer time on facebook, perhaps more than I should. The main reason though, is that I've been working on a novel for about five years--more off than on--and I've decided that I should get serious.

Was wondering where you've been CH.

"B Hussein Obama is systematically and deliberately trying to destroy America."

Indeed, some might think he's well intentioned but a fool, that doesn't matter much to me, the road to hell might be paved with lovely intentions, but the destination is still hell.

What do you mean "ever higher taxes"? Obama may not even repeal the bush tax cuts that helped to put America in debt in the first place.

And what exactly is wrong with "ever increasing regulation" on industry? Would those be regulations like a mandatory shut-off valve on an off-shore oil-rig, like the one that the Bush administration allowed BP to go without?

Col. Hogan said...

Wallaby,

In case you've been jumping around too much to notice, it's a mite too late to be blaming Bush for everything, nowadays. B Hussein has been dictator for a year and a half now. He promised to fix stuff, and has only made things worse.

It was too much spending--by orders of magnitude, by B Hussein, GWB, Bill Klinton, GHWB and many of their predecessors, and their respective Congresses, who are responsible for the deficit.

Today, spending should be cut to 5% or less of current totals, and taxes should be made voluntary. You'd voluntarily pay your fair share, wouldn't you?

I never thought Bush's tax cut was nearly enough, and he and his Congress overspent by hundreds of billions. B Hussein makes Bush's spending look like the work of an amateur.

As for regulation, it was Democrat regulation that caused the housing bust. Ditto the banking bust--though Bush got that going well, then B Hussein decided to finish 'em off. Ditto the auto industry. They learned it from Roosevelt, who destroyed the railroads.

I blame officials of both parties for the destruction of America as a free country. They both deserve it.

It is kind of tiring to keep hearing this dictator blame his predecessor for everything--and his magpies like yourself just keep babbling whatever he has on his teleprompter.

Yes, yes, that’s all well and good, but where are the tax increases? Maybe if you had done a bit more to address the substance of my post instead of name-calling and criticising its rhetoric, you might have gotten around to doing that. Are you talking about hypothetical tax increases? Because I was talking about actual tax increases.

I don’t want to get into a lengthy economic discussion with you; trying to hunt down evidence for every one of the unexplained assertions in that last comment is probably not worth the time. I just want you to answer the first question I put to you.

Col. Hogan said...

Wallaby,

I don't have any idea what you mean by "name calling," but I can start if that's what gets you off.

You sound like a typical leftist subhuman who has taken the blue pill--and liked it.

You took you a long time to come up with your message. I guess the wheels you keep upstairs must turn very slowly--in particular view of my observation that you have answered nothing, presented no facts, advanced no solutions of your own.

Is "Where are the tax increases?" the best you can do? I think I said that the financing of government should be voluntary. It remains unclear whether taxes will or will not increase at the end of this year, fast coming upon us. When der Fuhrer's socialized medicine kicks in, there will be serious tax increases. When, and if, Cap 'n' Tax ever becomes law, we might as well send them everything we own, 'cause they're going to take it anyway.

Enjoy it, Wallaby. It'll be your ideal world.

"I don't have any idea what you mean by "name calling,"

Even if this: "magpies like yourself just keep babbling" isn't name-calling (and it is), it's not exactly germane.

"You took you a long time to come up with your message. I guess the wheels you keep upstairs must turn very slowly"

Excellent guess, after all, it’s quite reasonable for you to believe that others follow your replies constantly, considering your charm and eloquence.

“You sound like a typical leftist subhuman”


“you have answered nothing, presented no facts, advanced no solutions of your own.”

If I am not confident enough in my knowledge of a topic to describe it accurately and support my contentions with reliable evidence, I generally avoid commenting on it. My aside on the previous administration’s spend-and-cut ways was probably a mistake and I don’t fault you for repudiating it, but understand that, in the primary topics of this discussion, I remain un-swayed by such arguments.


‘Is "Where are the tax increases?" the best you can do?’

It’s just the question that bothered me the most, considering how entirely it was side-stepped.

“I think I said that the financing of government should be voluntary.”

You did. However, because your original statement referred to the actual tax policy of the US government, rather than your opinion of it, this does nothing to support your argument.

“It remains unclear whether taxes will or will not increase at the end of this year, fast coming upon us. When der Fuhrer's socialized medicine kicks in, there will be serious tax increases. When, and if, Cap 'n' Tax ever becomes law, we might as well send them everything we own, 'cause they're going to take it anyway.”

Ah, hypothetical then.

Well, this has been quite an enlivening discussion, but I’m more interested by facts than opinions and insults. Thus, I bid you good day.
