HOW TO BANKRUPT A COUNTRY

January 26, 2016

Over the past seven years, and even before that, the federal administrative bureaucracy has grown and grown. Now, you have another new agency to usurp your tax dollars and cause greater borrowing from our enemies – and I don’t mean just Hillary’s and Barack’s Republican opposition this time.

With the formation of each new federal entity, there is office space to be leased or purchased, desks and other furniture to fill the space.  There are people to hire, pay, allow expense accounts, provide health care for, and continue paying when they leave their post. Either they receive ongoing retirement pay or separation pay or both, but they still get paid after leaving the job.

This time it is the creation of the National Background Investigations Bureau (NBIB). The ineptness of the Federal Investigation Services (not to be confused with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI) apparently didn’t have a large enough staff and management team to foolishly spend enough of your hard-earned money. Thus, $97 million more of your money is now going to an expanded but still ineffective and inept background check and data security agency.

Liberals never think in terms of streamlining, efficiency, accountability and responsibility. They only, and always, seek ways to spend more of your money and employ greater mediocrity.

Got a problem? Hey, that gives us the opportunity to add a new division or agency or bureaucratic offshoot with little oversight that’s even more intrusive.  We guarantee the new entity will only make your life more uncomfortable and more costly. We’ll give it a cool name that sounds like it may actually do something. Don’t fret though, we’ll keep the bumbling know-for-naughts employed that couldn’t do the job in the first place to make the unemployment numbers look better. In fact, we’ll hire more!

Pay attention now! This new taxpayer burden is in addition to Atty Gen. Loretta Lynch’s request for $80 million.  That money is to implement the invasive and unmanageable background checks that President Obama has deemed into existence by Executive Order.

Even with the new agency at full staffing with morning donuts and coffee provided, there is still no guarantee that unvetted “refugees” and illegal aliens from around the world will be properly scrutinized. Many illegal aliens and refugees are allowed to remain in the U.S. without the government verifying their full names, medical or global criminal history.

Two thousand more daydreaming, porn watching government pencil pushers will still authorize full citizenship benefits to 90% of the gang members, cartel bosses or psych ward escapees applying for federal positions or gun permits.  It will, however, take the U.S. one step closer to the financial meltdown we see in Greece and Italy.

JUST LIKE THE ISLAMIC STATE

November 22, 2015

President Obama is following the terror plan of the radical Islamic jihadists from which most Americans seek protection. He has done it since his first day in office, he has continued to this day and will undoubtedly keep on until he is ultimately stopped, either at the end of his term or by more drastic earlier means. The end of his despotic reign cannot come soon enough because as his time runs short, he is becoming more bold.

While he says in speeches that he wants to work across the aisle in a bipartisan way, he invariably finishes each sentence with a vicious attack on those who disagree with him, or want to modify or amend his proposals to make them more palatable, and in some cases even legal. He becomes more aggressive against “We the People” than he has ever displayed against our enemies.

The majority of our congressional representatives agree that the refugee program as it is has tremendous potential for allowing terrorists to slip by. They voted to slow the screening process to enhance the safety of Americans.

ISIS claims that they will continue to escalate their carnage as long as war planes continue to bomb their strongholds. They will become stronger as the resistance to their mayhem continues. Likewise, President Obama vows defiantly to bring in more refugees from the areas with the highest populations of radical Islamists. The more we ask for thorough and reasonable vetting the more difficult he makes it to do so. Any questioning of his motives or actions and we are declared xenophobic or racist. As with always, he is siding with Muslims, and radical Muslims in particular, over the well-being of America and Americans.

Why this man has not been hauled off to Gitmo in shackles is beyond me. Each of his moves, from overwhelming the Welfare system and bankrupting the country to opening the prison gates allowing violent criminals to roam free to threatening border patrol and ICE agents if they do their jobs to weaponizing the IRS against conservatives to prodding and promoting hostility between poor and rich, people of color against whites, illegal aliens against citizens, gays against straights, etc. is treasonous. Congress’ lack of will to stop him should give many of them the clinking and clanking jewelry as well.

Can you say “All enemies, foreign and domestic”?

THEY’RE AT IT AGAIN

October 28, 2015

Does anybody remember the financial meltdown of 2008 that began the current depression? (Yes, I mean depression and I’ll explain that in a bit). Does anybody care that it is happening again, but this time on a much, much larger scale?

The United States of America, not just Wall Street, is over-leveraged and operating on what can only be considered pyramid tactics. Continued borrowing to support wasteful deficit spending without a plan in place to do anything but exacerbate the condition is rapidly bringing us to the brink.

Secretary of Treasury, Jacob (Jack) Lew, is calling for yet another raising of the debt ceiling to pay the debts we cannot afford. Why call it a ceiling? Ceiling implies the extent to which something can rise. If we continue to raise the ceiling, there is effectively no ceiling. Why do we make-believe there is a limit for the amount of debt an administration or a country may incur?

There is even a potential plan in place, that could be passed by congress to “suspend” the debt ceiling.  What a great plan!  Don’t even try to set a limit or quantify a spending amount, just allow spending to go on and wait for the collapse of the country.  Now I’m depressed.

The government spins the job reports to make it look like we are in recovery. They put forth that unemployment claims are at a 40 year low. They purposefully fail to state that 37.6% of the eligible civilian workforce is without work and have been for so long that they no longer show on the unemployment rolls.  This number continues to rise.

In 1929, 25% of the workforce was idle and that was called a depression.  The number of people out of work today is increasing as the available jobs continue to decrease.  Among those wage earners fortunate enough to have employment, weekly hours now average just 32 where a 40 hour workweek was the norm just a few years ago.

Today the government sends money straight to people’s bank accounts via EBT and SNAP so we don’t see long bread lines today.  It’s all illusion.

Another round of housing foreclosures is on the horizon.  Fire sale pricing is already underway in some areas of the country. This will only sink us deeper into the “recession” from which the government claims we’re recovering. It will put more people on the Welfare rolls requiring more assistance from the federal government. This won’t be the last request for a debt ceiling increase to pay the bills.

Just a reasoned cutback on wasteful expenditures by our public employees would help the situation tremendously. A few less billion dollar grants to nations sponsoring terrorism might also be a place to start.

WHEN WILL IT END?

October 17, 2015

The government, the news cycles, the debates all continue to pound us with the fact that we now have $18 trillion in debt. That’s scary.   However, what they fail to present is that the United States is suffering under a burden that lies somewhere between $125 trillion to $130 trillion in unfunded liabilities beyond the announced $18 trillion “debt”.

The true amount is difficult to accurately identify because it depends on the accounting method used by the government. The method du jour varies according to what they want to present or hide.

Hellooo!  Unfunded liabilities are debt, too. It is money obligated for contracted purchases of goods, services and programs. It is the government’s credit card spending; obligate the money now and pay for it on time, with interest, hoping that some money will come in to cover it before the next minimum payment comes due.  It’s money promised for Welfare, health care, school subsidies, subsidies to state governments, grants and subsidies to foreign governments, etc. Our government has promised, but has not yet figured out how to pay for, over $127,000,000,000,000 in liabilities.

This is what is known as a national security threat! Climate change will not be a concern when the master banker of the world collapses.

Political Cartoons by Gary Varvel

Unbelievably, a majority of our elected elite are willing to again raise the debt ceiling and continue spending into oblivion. It’s not like the coming chaos is unforeseen. When you have $X coming in and $X+4 being spent and obligated, you’re going to run out of money at some point.

The logical way of easing the problem is to cut back on spending. The current way is continue with status quo; blame the previous president and congress but continue spending. Congress after congress, Democrat controlled and Republican controlled, there has not been a budget passed by congress in over ten years. This country has been operating on continuing resolutions with projected escalation since well before Bush left office. Congress continues to appropriate nonexistent funds.

This is like your neighbor who knew his continued employment was tenuous, had no savings to fall back on, yet continued his extravagant life paying the minimum on his maxed limit credit cards with what he could borrow from friends. He kept asking for higher limits on his accounts until he could no longer make the minimum payments and his car payment so he lost his car…then his house…then his wife before declaring bankruptcy to relieve his burden. All could have been saved if he just quit buying more unneeded stuff and spending frivolously a couple of years earlier.

So, free college for all. Free medical care for all. Free public transportation for all. Free meals for all. Free housing for all. Open the borders and let more people in.  No need to work, the government is here for you.  They’ll just keep borrowing and spending until our creditors cut us off. Enjoy the ride, it’s all free.  IT’S ALL FREE!

WEAVING TANGLED WEBS

September 12, 2015

Trying to follow decisions made by different courts around the land is difficult for the average person and impossible to to understand how judgements are made. Activist judges on all levels (lower courts, state supreme courts, federal circuit courts and finally the Supreme Court of the nation) continue to invoke unconstitutional interpolations to the Constitution of the United States of America for the sole purpose of making laws rather than clarifying them.

Here’s a simple headline: The Washington Supreme Court Rules Charter Schools are Unconstitutional.
Reading the story, one finds that the “decision” questions the constitutionality of taking taxpayer money and giving it to private enterprises. The premise for this is that using taxpayer money to actually educate children rather than running them through public indoctrination centers is not a proper use. The money, once it is in the hands of corrupt government disbursement agents, must remain within the system of corruption. It can only be used within, by and for the purposes of direct government influence. That’s what this decision says to me.

Howwever, it is nothing more than another blatant example of liberal interpretation to suit a unique situation without regard for how taxpayer money is normally used as a whole.  The decision conveniently ignores the fact that the Army Corps of Engineers are not the one’s contracted to build any of the influential centers that fail to educate our kids. Instead, it is private contractors such as Fluor or Ledcor or Lusardi who use the taxpayer money to do such.

Using the school system alone to make fools out of the Washington State Supreme Court, one could take any of the purveyors for any school district.

Antithesis #1.
Are the books that convert our kids’ minds from normal to liberal written, printed, bound and sold by employees on the government payroll? Almost, but not really.

Antithesis#2: Are the meals provided to the youngsters while on the institutional grounds raised, planted, cultivated, cropped, butchered and sold by the overpaid tax usurpers? Not at all, that’s work Americans refuse to do…or so I’m told.

So, with this layman’s reading of the decision, how is it unconsititutional for our children to get a balanced education using taxpayer money?  Why must our youth be chained to a highly influenced liberal indoctrination center?

Apparently, if liberals lose control of the easily influenced minds of tomorrow’s generation before they are able to form reasoned thoughts for themselves, it poses a threat to the domination philosophy. Therefore, all counter arguments derived using logic must be summarily dismissed and replaced by what “feels” right or what most appeals to the liberal doctrine.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we attempt to parse well defined words in order to continue enslaving the masses.
