It’s as if they wanted the U.S. to fail
We are headed for a double-dip recession, the unemployment rate continues to rise, the national economy is on life support, and Mr. Obama, the Five Trillion Dollar Man, is making rounds at some colleges trying to convince the youth of America to vote for him.
The Five Trillion Dollar Man (that’s how much debt he has amassed during his first three and one-half years) is telling students that the interest on student loans will double on July 1.
Naturally, he forgets to tell them that this was a Democrat law hatched in the bowels of the Democrat Party to create another false issue to run on in an election year.
He is also telling them that when they graduate from college, many of them will owe as much as $25,000 in student loans. What he forgets to tell the students is that they already owe $54,036 in taxes to pay off the national debt. If they become tax payers, they will owe $138,000, and this is if Democrats get their spending addiction under control.
He is outraged that students will owe $25,000 in student loans. On the other hand, he says not a word about his irresponsible spending which threatens to make this great country into a carbon copy of Greece. Put simply, we are in trouble, and the insanity may be growing worse.
Last week, a group of young people produced a film titled “If I wanted America to Fail.” This film is brilliant. It goes through all of the things the progressives, the liberals, the socialist, and the communists have done to this country, and in the end, the film concludes that “they would change nothing.” In other words, we are already speeding at warp speed down the road to failure, and if failure is what is wanted, then failure is what we are about to get.
One of the film’s points has to do with energy. Without relatively cheap, plentiful energy, this country will become a European clone. Creativity will be stifled. Entrepreneurship will be no more. Individualism will cease to exist. Private property will disappear, and the government will become the master. Unnamed, unseen bureaucrats will control our economic future, our healthcare, education, and energy – especially energy. Energy allows us to be a mobile society. It allows us to travel, conduct business, move goods and services across the nation, and power our homes and businesses.
The progressives set out to make Americans feel guilty about their energy use. First, in the 1970s they fostered a bogus science called global cooling. We were assured that a coming “ice age” was going to wipe us all out. Then the global warming crowd turned up. We were assured daily by science and the media that we were going to burn up or that within ten years, most of New York City would be underwater.
Unbelievably, this nonsense caught on with many of the non-thinkers in our society. Soon, we were building windmills and solar panels, and the U. S. Government was squandering billions of your hard earned tax dollars to finance “green energy” projects that had no chance of succeeding in the free market. Oil companies were made to be the enemies of the state, and many people erroneously believed that we could actually survive on pond algae, windmills, and solar panels.
But America has more than its share of absolute dangerous nuts. “Writing for Forbes Magazine, climate change alarmist Steve Zwick calls for skeptics of man-made global warming to be tracked, hunted down and have their homes burned to the ground.” This is another shocking illustration of how eco-fascism is rife within the environmentalist lobby.
Zwick continues, “We know who the active denialists are… Let’s start keeping track of them now, and when the famines come, let’s make them pay. Let their houses burn. Let’s swap their safe land for submerged islands. Let’s force them to bear the cost of rising food prices. They broke the climate. Why should the rest of us have to pay for it?”
This kind of madness only scratches the surface. “In 2010, a UK government-backed global warming alarmist group produced an infomercial in which children who refused to lower their carbon emissions (breathing) were slaughtered in an orgy of blood and guts.”
All I can say after reading this unbelievable insanity is “Thank God for the 2nd Amendment.”
