Time To Pay the Piper?

Time To Pay the Piper?
ROC Commentary (July 15, 2011 Issue#28)

Any private entity operating like our government does now would likely be considered a criminal enterprise.

Since the 1930’s our federal government works in many respects much like Ponzi schemes made famous by many notorious figures who devised underhanded ways to help themselves to the fruits of other people’s labor for profit to themselves.  Politicians figured out long ago that public accountability was lacking at certain times, especially when their own party enjoyed immense political power. Tricky wording and emotional appeal could be employed to get enough visible public support to advance ill-advised policies and programs so they could be incrementally implemented with minimum resistance from the people, most of whom would never consider the long term implications. So they promised the American people the world, the stars and the moon! Unfortunately many believed that there was such a thing as a “free lunch!” The politicians then pocketed their political profits…at our expense.

So many wild promises have been made to Americans for decades now by these politicians in the name of solving one “problem” or another with vague assurances as to the benefits compared to the true costs.  This selling by incremental steps has a ratcheting factor too (rarely, if ever, reversed) that has allowed the politicians of the federal government to create incomprehensible, mammoth-sized money drains on America’s productive. A continuing series of power usurping moves by these so called representatives or by supposedly impartial judges with agendas (public servants entrusted with upholding the duties and responsibilities required by the US Constitution) has also successfully reversed the role of our federal government in relation to the people.

Increasingly the media safeguard for accountability has evaporated as they have ignored their watchdog role or actively participated in the political deceptions. Now the federal government has intruded into numerous areas of our lives by exercising power they were never granted by the people or by our founding documents. This usurpation of power has cost us big time… in both monetary terms, and in our liberty. The “piper” now holds a huge bill in our name (not the politicians who ran it up)… that threatens to exceed our ability to pay. The reckless spending for empty promises must stop now, and the bill we owe must be addressed … while we still can. The past promises that were made and are now depended on by so many must be brought into proper perspective through a prism based in reality and not automatically continued “as is” until they inevitably ruin us all financially.

What we are witnessing in the the “debt ceiling” debate is the unpleasant reality which eventually catches up with those who set up schemes to defraud others.  The unpleasant results of making wild promises, while using other peoples money to keep the scams going, has come to a head.  Those who are in on the Washington con or “game” simply wish to continue to play… by giving themselves permission to do so, even though it has become glaringly apparent that the longer this continues, the worse it will be for our young and future citizens.

The American people for the most part have made it clear that we expect and demand responsible, accountable, and honest solutions by our representation to get us back on the right track and provide our posterity with the same opportunities we have enjoyed. We repeatedly reject any more “smoke and mirrors”, or “kicking the can down the road” in order to avoid doing what must be done.

This is not just another high stakes contest in the game of “chicken” between political foes.  This battle has much more on the line than who wins politically. Ultimately the outcome will directly affect all the people, and determine the future or demise of this country.  There is very little to really compromise on, as the actual choice is stark… either the success or failure as a country.  It is time to stand up for doing what is right if we believe in America. It is long past due time to “pay the piper” and to get our house in order to ensure that from now on… we have and operate a government based in reality… and not false utopian dreams for equal outcomes, ideological fantasies, or other pretending.

Paying For Free Lunch

Harry Reid thinks the taxpayers who have found a voice in the the form of the Tea Party movement have it all wrong…

What did Milton Friedman say about those that think like Harry Reid?

 

Let’s Be Clear…

Obama is fond of saying this.

If anything gets much clearer for America under Obama’s leadership, based on how the media will report it, then expect bats to start falling from the night’s sky as they suffer catastrophic mid air collisions in their sonar deprived blindness. We know the lapdogs are just doing what they are told to do as caucus team players, parrot the talking points, but the rest of us can see even they are beginning to squirm more now at the lies and audacity, and feel the need to shower more often.

No real explanation as to why Obama chose to start a new war without any real national interest, not even the ministers of propaganda are able to spin it well.

Maybe we can get a clear explanation on what social engineering did for our housing values? Or maybe, why people like Barney Franks or Chris Dodd are not in prison for their roles in the outright extortion and ponzi schemes they devised and supported resulting in the predictable and subsequent collapse of the mortgage financing sector?

This country has tremendous reserves of untapped energy resources and the technology know-how to safely extract them, and put them to productive use to aid our economic vitality, but what is very clear is that those invested in their own power will not permit this course for our future, not while they hold the reins.

Here is what is crystal clear to the average taxpayer, that there are way too many people playing games with the truth. A trip to the grocery store for life’s necessities is becoming a budget management exercise (that used to be reserved for planning summer vacation spending) as both food and gasoline prices are soaring.

The Democrats own the budget mess.  Any shutdown that is needed due to their reckless spending over the last four years is, and should be, pinned squarely where it belongs, on them! This country only reached a ten trillion dollar deficit in October of 2008 but now we are well past $14 trillion! Granting another raise of the debt ceiling would clearly be an outrage against the consent of the people, so our experience tells us watch out, they will find a deceitful or underhanded way of doing this and the GOP will cave in to it, despite our protests, or the damning long term affects to our posterity.

During campaigns we hear much about trimming wasteful and overlapping programs in our federal government. We know there are tons of them and the waste and fraud and abuse of taxpayers money is rampant.  Now is the time to get down to the work of paring off all this fat, as their carbon footprints on our pocketbooks is far too big.

Both parties could also look at the barriers to their power imposed by the US Constitution that they have so willfully destroyed through overreach, or just ignored for decades, and see that maybe that wasn’t such a hot idea. So many burdensome rules and regulations have been created nobody can know or comply with them all, and the free enterprise racehorse of the past is burdened with an estimate 20% of its own weight by all these, while still being expected to compete globally. While the real issues of our country like national security, energy independence, effective education, crime, moral decline, poverty etc. have not improved, and in fact worsened under central planning, our government takes an ever larger share of the cargo area in our 747 jumbo jet economy while telling us all to shut up, and sit down, and do as we are told.

Failure and incompetence without accountability is business as usual for these people, and they want to tell us how we should live? No way! We can clearly see that their interference is what is clouding our future!

Let us be clear! Let us set the conversation! Those in Washington need the message recited over again and again, they may call us any name they wish, they can blame us for their dead bats too, but we have had it, we are watching them closely in greater numbers than they think, we expect the truth, responsible and accountable government, and clearly we need to continue to let them know it!

Obamacare murders patient choice regardless of name they use

The month of August 2009 is a critical one to the American people.
Regardless of Pelosi or Obamas rhetoric about who the villain is in stopping them, the American people need to step up our opposition while the legislators grace us with their presence!
Regardless of the name they apply to their “plan” it is going to mean economic disaster and long term misery  to Americans.

I have reprinted Senator Demint’s email below from the Senate Conservative Fund

Co-ops = Public Option = Single Payer


Knowing that Americans would reject the idea of a “single payer” government health care system, Democrats began calling their plan a “public option.” Now that Americans have rejected that idea too, Democrats are peddling another proposal called health care “cooperatives.”

Unfortunately, these federally-backed co-ops are nothing more than a public option by another name. Washington will set up and subsidize them so private health plans are squeezed out of the marketplace. Then, like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the costs will catch up with these government-sponsored entities and Congress will tell us they are “too big to fail” and must be nationalized.


Some Democrats are willing to admit that co-ops are the same as a public option. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said earlier this month that, “We’re going to have some type of public option, call it ‘co-op,’ call it what you want.”

Some Democrats are also willing to admit that the public option is the same as a single payer system. Congressman Barney Frank (D-MA) said this week that, “I think if we get a good public option it could lead to single payer, and that’s the best way to reach single payer.”

It’s becoming clear that no matter what name Democrats put on it, all of their ideas lead to a government takeover of our health care.

The latest government bailout


This week, the Senate moved beyond bailing out industries that it has driven into the ground to bailing out its own programs that it has failed to manage.

Proving once again that the federal government is incapable of managing the federal highway system, the Senate passed $7 billion to shore up the failing program. The bill also provides $7.5 billion to bail out the failing unemployment insurance program and $185 billion to bail out several government-managed home-ownership programs.

Only 17 Republicans had the courage to vote against this rip-off. Click here to see how your Senators voted.

Question: If the government cannot manage these programs, what makes anyone think it can manage our health care?

Fight the Socialists Plan for Mega Taxes

Face it, the Democrats of today are now socialists!

The mega tax they are trying to enact in the name of the environment in the Cap and Trade scheme

will be devestating to America.

Scientists on both sides of the issue know that solar cycles warm the the Earth(and all the other planets in our system) and climate is a direct result of those cycles. They know man is of little if any consequence to the climate on Earth.

The whole plan is about controlling people, and it is largely a Democrat party scam!

The estimates of the effects on the American people by their regulations to control our behavior in the name of preserving our living environment are ugly!

For one it will devastate the economy as millions will not have money to buy food or power much less anything else!

It will cost lives , as people are forced to sacrifice safety for mobility in smaller unsafe vehicles.

It will result in the loss of millions more jobs.

It will cost an estimated $7 trillion loss  to our economy-

“Economic Unilateral Disarmament”

You can take action-

Dear Supporter of American Energy,

While the American economy continues to struggle, the Obama Administration is attempting to raise energy prices by forcing Americans to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions. The only way to do this is by regulating and reducing the energy we get from natural gas, coal, and oil—the sources of 85 percent of our energy.

We must fight back. The Administration will only accept comments until June 23rd. Please join us and tell the Administration that we should be free to use the energy sources that work the best and cost the least.

If the Obama Administration’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) moves forward with their plan, bureaucrats will regulate your lawnmower’s gas mileage, your car, the light bulbs in your house, the heating and cooling system in your children’s school, and even your electricity use. These are just a few of the likely outcomes if the Administration decides to regulate greenhouse gases using the Clean Air Act.

The Administration must hear your voice. Send a comment to EPA today.

AEA believes the Clean Air Act is not the appropriate tool to regulate greenhouse gases. If Congress wants to regulate greenhouse gases, it should explicitly authorize such regulations instead of allowing a bunch of unelected bureaucrats at EPA to do so.

EPA is currently soliciting public comments on their proposed plan to regulate greenhouse gases using the Clean Air Act. Let your voice be heard! Time is of the essence! We can only stop this harmful plan if you weigh in today.

Sincerely,

Thomas Pyle
American Energy Alliance

News Highlights

When you go to bed at night, and when you awake in the morning, news from the domestic front has been pretty consistent, bailouts, government takeovers, deficit spending, and every socialist solution ever thought of, is hurriedly being foist upon the American people.

They are in a hurry to push all these programs, and push them fast because they know if people get a chance to actually look at them …we will not accept them!

When you are in a hole- “stop digging” the saying goes, yet the Democrats not only won’t stop digging, they keep digging faster.

The personal charm of the president is starting to lose its sheen as people look at staggering numbers and realize we will never recover, or leave a free society for our children if we cannot stop the relentless irresponsibility of excessive spending, and huge tax increases looming for present and future generations.

Getting the real truth from the media these days would be like getting an actual photo of Sasquatch or Loch Ness”s “Nelly”, and it isn’t likely to happen.  They are all propagandists now at the three networks having sold out integrity for access and leaving the rest of us with story of Obama as a master fly swatter to be in awe of!

So I really appreciate the News highlights at Surgeusa.org and the comments associated with the stories.

I can go there and get a real assessment of what those headlines actually will mean to the American people.

The hurried push for Cap and Trade, Health care, increased Financial regulation of the free markets, and health care reform are just a few of the attacks we face on all fronts.

The VAT or Value added Tax will be another hurry up and get this passed because ‘we can’t afford to wait‘ socialist plan.

Action Alert: There is talk in Congress again about creating a value-added tax (VAT), and perhaps trying to sell it by offering some other tax breaks at first.  This could be a huge tax burden on everyone, raising the cost of almost everything we buy, while hiding the cost in the prices and making businesses responsible for the collection of it, somewhat like a sales tax system (but different – because the consumer doesn’t see the added tax cost, somewhat like the way that excise and other taxes are buried in the prices of gasoline, utilities, cigarettes, etc.  That maintains the fiction that income taxes are not being raised while dramatically increasing the actual tax burden on everyone.

Health Care Reform Debate Must Occur!

By all indications so far, in this administration, real debate about any issue has been dismissed and policy is being imposed as if  “time for debate is over”.

No “crisis” can be wasted!

The word has been put out to Nanny Pelosi, and the rest of the “Obama-compliant” Congress and his media,

“Obamacare” (universal health care) will be voted into law before the summer break!

We will be bombarded with a lot of twisted rhetoric, pro-nationalization anecdotal evidence, that “this is the time and now is the time”, and heavy propaganda by the left about the success of national health care programs elsewhere, and the “right” of everyone in America to have access to affordable health care via such a system.

Never mind that socialized medicine is actually bankrupting other countries, eating up budgets and delivering inferior care… pay no attention to that!

Like the “Man-made Global Warming”  hoax- the facts will not matter, only peoples perception of the facts really matter to the politicians, and the left- has a monopoly in manipulating this aspect of the “debate”.

Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy’s “blueprint for health care” is being toted by the Left as the prime example we should  follow for reforms, but the “Massachusetts Model” is not exactly a success.

See Massachusetts Miracle or Massachusetts Miserable…by CATO’s Michael D. Tanner

An actual debate would need to ask this question-

Is healthy competition even being allowed to take place in the US health care system?

In a different article Mr. Tanners states:

Other countries are loosening government controls and injecting market mechanisms, particularly cost-sharing by patients, market pricing of goods and services, and increased competition among insurers and providers. Pat Cox, former president of the European Parliament, said in a report to the European Commission, “[W]e should start to explore the power of the market as a way of achieving much better value for money.”

There is even evidence of a growing shift from public to private provision of health care. If many of the proposals in Congress would push us toward more of a European-style system, the trend in Europe is toward a system that looks more like the U.S.

The politicians created an impression in the public’s mind about both the causes and effects of so-called environmental catastrophes awaiting mankind,  if we failed to act.  Once they became certain enough people believed the “evidence”, ( that they had largely fabricated ) they declared that “the debate was over”, and that the time for solutions (theirs) was here!

That method is about to saddle us with the biggest tax increase in the history of the world, and it is based solely on people believing a lie!

We must continue to expose that lie for what it is, before it destroys us, and also have actual debate on health care reform before it to becomes an excuse to plunge into the “no return world” of government control, collectivism, and socialism!

The power brokers are actually reforming our country, this is not even really about health care, or energy  problems.

This is about the ability to control massive amounts of people by having control over what they do or do not get, or are allowed to keep for themselves.

This is ultimately a  debate  about transferring our own self-determination as individuals,  over to an all powerful government.

This is a debate we must have, and that we must win to stay free!
