Today's post begins with kudos to Kathy Shaidle whose blog Five Feet of Fury is worthy of note for all free speech and liberty loving beings. She offers this riposte to the Loony Left: "You are not smart enough to tell me how to live."
The Greeks invented democracy. We followed their example with our republic. How long before we adopt their practices and start selling off the Florida Keys to pay for the theft welfare state?
Following the forced unionization debacle in Michigan, it gets worse as the US Department of Labor begins to unionize illegal aliens. The scope of left wing theft is staggering. They plan a mass amnesty scheme to purchase some 10 million votes from illegals with the resources and money of law abiding American citizens.
How long will it be until the party-of-amorality becomes so publicly vilified that they censor the Internet watch dogs who expose and criticize their smoke and mirrors chicanery? Will they shut down the Web altogether? When the people are denied the right to assemble peaceably and criticize the actions of agents of the state, we are no longer a free nation.
Which one of the czars established by the self-appointed and self-anointed ruling class elites will pull the plug on this bastion of free political speech?
The O-bumites claim that there will be no WelfareHealthCare for illegals; this is but a ruse. First, they will give them amnesty, or entitlement citizenship, then they will be able to hop onto the welfare wagon. The costs to taxpayers will be enormous. Perhaps this is part of the reason that the Theftocrats have shirked their legal responsibility to pass a budget bill. They are desperate to hide the extent to which they are ripping off the public.
The mommy staters invented the CRI to provide welfare housing for their permanent entitlement constituencies. After a while, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, the Federal Reserve, and other government hooligans managed to crash our economy and threaten the security of our major financial institutions. Then the O-bumites invented TARP. Remember the Tony Soprano Rule. O-buma forced bankers to accept money that they did not want to borrow. Now, it is this.
Despite the fact that a number of banks have completely or partially repaid the unwanted loans, the Corruptocrats plan to continue bleeding them with new taxes that they will pass along to consumers. The Soprano Rule? The reason for the loan is to take over the operation. This is how progressive-socialist-thieves work. Steal the business through oppressive taxation and micromanaging regulation and leave the work of operating the business successfully to the real people outside of government. Theft-welfare advocates are parasites.
May your gods be with you.
