Doug Hoffman Is Not A Republican. Why?

The Republican Party has a problem.
Actually, they have had this problem for quite a while.
But it could not be better exemplified than in the congressional race in New York where the conservative is, well, a Conservative, and the liberal is...a Republican.

The Republican Party establishment has supported the liberal, leaving Mr Hoffman to twist in the wind, on his own.

Mr Hoffman stands a good chance of winning the contest.

The question begged: when will Republicans learn?

Conservatives must run as conservatives, not as some hybrid vote-chaser. See under: John McCain.

Republicans must either get as serious about their conservatism as Democrats are about their socialism or they will always be a minority party.
Newt Gingrich is wrong.
The Republican Party will either win or lose based on beliefs and principles, or they will cease to matter at all.

The opposite of socialism isn't compromise, it's rebellion.

Republicans had better get serious about the defending the free market.

Republicans had better get serious about what they profess to believe in.

Because something tells me there are other Doug Hoffmans out there.

GDP Number Is A False Positive.

The government announced that GDP grew by 3.5% in the 3rd quarter of 2009.
Yet unemployment continues to grow at the same time.
So, is the key to economic growth putting more and more people out of work?

Of course not.

Cash for Clunkers accounts for a portion of this increase, as does other government spending.

Think of it this way: imagine you produce a product and lose money every time you sell a unit of this product. So, to avoid going out of business you borrow more and more money and go deeper and deeper into debt. But your numbers look good as you produce more and more. Soon you will be able to borrow no more money. Nor will you be able to pay your benefactors. Everybody will be poorer for your futile effort.

This is the American economy today.
This is a false economy.
This is not the beginning of a recovery.
The worst is yet to come.

Stimulus Nonsense

The socialist White House and the media-the legitimate one, that is, not Fox News-are in a bit of a battle over how many "jobs" have been "saved or created" by the "stimulus."

Here's how it works: the media that guy being paid to dig a hole, then refill it equals 1 job, saved or created.
The socialist White House says, "Yeah, but the guy digging that hole had lunch at a local restaurant and saved the waitress's job.So that's two jobs!"

The actual number is close to 0.

Here's how it actually works: the government takes money from those who could create actual jobs, those that add something of value to society, and pays that guy to dig holes and then refill them.
Nothing of value has been created.

Think of it this way: if I took 3/4 of your income and paid 3 guys to dig up your front yard, have I really created any jobs at all?

In fact, I have probably destroyed an even greater of jobs, as you no longer have that money to spend and invest and actually grow the economy.

Stimulus Has Done Its Job

Chritina Romer, a "top economist" at the White House says the stimulus has "already had its biggest effect on the economy."

So its biggest effect was to drive unemployment up to 9.8%?

Health Care Reform Is Already A Failure

One really need look no further than the mandatory health insurance requirements of Massachusetts, where coverage is mandatory, to know what will happen when the same type legislation becomes federal law.
Massachusetts has the highest premiums of any state yet to secede from the union.

But, if one does require more evidence, then take as an example the current shortage of H1N1 flu vaccine.
How did this shortage occur?
The Department of Health and Human Services was responsible for this show in its entirety.
They set the price at $25 per.
They gave monopoly production rights to one company, Novartis.
They imposed other restrictions and regulations.

Missing from this formula? The Free Market.

Price was not allowed to fluctuate, and could therefore send no signal back to the producer.
Also, the controlled price meant that the only way to increase profit was to do the least efficient job without losing their government contract.
Competitors were not allowed to compete, so no shortage could be made up by a more efficient producer.

This is what will happen with all health care after it is socialized.

The Maoist And The Fox

To discover there are unabashed -indeed, proud!- Maosists in the White House, is not so much a revelation as it is a confirmation of just how radically left Barack Obama truly is.

However, to witness the all powerful declare war on a news network, Fox in this case, is to witness a dangerous period in America's history.

To deny that Fox is not Conservative in it's editorial bent -or to deny that MSNBC is equally as Liberal- is to be unserious.

However, this is irrelevant.

Unconditional freedom of the press -read the Constitution- is to be, not merely cherished, but protected at all costs in a free country.

To disagree with political bias is one thing. To attempt to try to quash dissenting voices is to engage in totalitarianism.

Executive Pay To Be Slashed!

The socialist White House of Barack Obama will soon announce that highly compensated executives will have to take massive pay cuts as they received billions of dollars from taxpayers to keep their bankrupt enterprises afloat.

Let's review: these companies should have been allowed to go out of business. And these pay cuts? Well, they're meaningless.

This is simply what happens when the government attempts to run the economy.

Anita Dunce

Obama's White House Communist Director, Anita Dunn, states freely that one of her favorite political philosophers is Mao Tse-Tung.

Let's review: Chairman Mao murdered upwards of 70 million people. But let's give him the benefit of the doubt and pare that number by half, just so her defenders don't start quibbling over the actual number.

In case you haven't gotten the memo: this is a dangerous administration.

With people like this running the country, the country WILL be run by people like this.

Michelle Obama: As Dumb As Her Husband

Michelle Obama writes, "...good teachers aren't just critical for the success of our students. They are the key to the success of our economy."

Yeah, I thought the "stimulus" was the key to the success of our economy, but whatever.

Here's the key to the success of any economy: FREEDOM.

Headline-Ginsburg Falls Ill

According to reports published by biased, liberal activists masquerading as journalists, liberal judicial activist masquerading as a Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell ill on an airplane and then fell out of her seat.

She should have been arrested and beaten for not having her seatbelt fastened properly...or for being a liberal judicial activist...either way, I'm okay with the beating.

Happy Days Are Here Again?

The DOW hit 10,000 and Larry Summers says the recession is over. ain't so.

The stock market will plunge yet again, and if you think this has been a bad recession, then you ain't seen nothin' yet.

Deficit spending, inflation, regulations, and the "stimulus" spell big economic trouble within a year.

Nobel Nuttiness

What with Al Gore winning the Nobel Peace Peace Prize for engaging in the scam of global warming alarmism, and Barack Obama winning the same award for engaging in the scam of Keynesian "stimulus" spending, it appears that the Nobel committee's policy is to bestow this dubious honor on Americans with stupid ideas.

Why isn't the rest of the world outraged?

That's the current unemployment rate.

Obama assured us it would not go higher than 8%.

The stimulus is not working.
But it was never going to work.

There is currently no end in sight.
What a shock.

End the stimulus.
Get government out of private enterprise.
Watch prosperity ensue.

Moore Idiotic Than Most

Propagandist Michael Moore complains that "Capitalism never did anything for me."

Thus displaying in one simple sentence his complete ignorance of both Capitalism in particular and economics in general.

For it was precisely capitalism that allowed him to rise from his "working class" origins to the very pinnacle of fame.

It happened like this: here was an obscure nobody who because he lives in a country which operates under a (relatively) free economic system was able to not only pursue, but to achieve, his dream.
Michael Moore, when he started out, was not politically connected, nor did he have the advantage of a wealthy backer, and yet was able to harass a captain of industry unmolested, film it, then sell it to a free audience.
This process made him rich.

If anyone invested in Mr Moore's enterprise it was because they were free to do so and believed it would be good investment.
If anyone did not invest, it was not because they were prohibited to do so by the state.

As we see, Michael Moore is a capitalist. And a successful one at that!

Oh, The Vanity!

So, Obama thought the mesmeric power of his mere presence would bring the 2016 Olympic Games to Chicago.

The 2016 Olympic Games will be in Rio.

Here's the lesson Obama has yet to learn: the rest of the world considers him the proverbial Useful Idiot. See under: Cindy Sheehan.
