The Magnitude of the Lie | The Blog on Obama: White House Dossier

Lies: If you like your healthcare plan you can keep it. Period. If you like your your doctor you can keep them. The average family will save $2,500 on premiums. Obamacare will bend the cost curve down.

But who cares? Its not just the stupid intervention in healthcare, its intervention in nearly everything in American lives.

The US government is not to be trusted since they are bunch of fools screwing around with your lives. We need to fight them and if its with violence then so be it. I would be willing to fight this war.

Iran Will Not Have an Atomic Bomb. Period.

The idea that the slapstick comedians Kerry and the Obamessiah can somehow broker peace with a recalcitrant foe such as Iran is not just naive, its frankly stupid and by giving in to their demands like we did with the Syrians will make us less safe. One does not win in card game by folding.

Roger L. Simon » Iran Will Not Have an Atomic Bomb. Period.

"It is curious that people tend to regard government as a quasi-divine, selfless, Santa Claus organization. Government was constructed neither for ability nor for the exercise of loving care; government was built for the use of force and for necessarily demagogic appeals for votes. If individuals do not know their own interests in many cases, they are free to turn to private experts for guidance. It is absurd to say that they will be served better by a coercive, demagogic apparatus." -Murray Rothbard, Power and Market: Government and the Economy, 1970-

The State is an institution of theft....

The above is a thought from Murray Rothbard, American philosopher and one of the founders of the post-WWII libertarian movement. Even the Europeans are catching on. "tax is just about a system where politicians and bureaucrats steal money from the it citizens to squander in the most disgraceful manner."

Amazing. Thought of the day....

As Kersten concludes, the primary cause of entrenched poverty is not where people live, but how they behave. For example, in Hennepin County, the out-of-wedlock birth rate for U.S. born blacks is 84 percent. The white rate is 18 percent.
Maybe these folks should consider returning to being normal for a change.

More stupidity from the frothing-at-the-mouth leftist New York Times.....

"(Dallas) reckoning with its own legacy as the “city of hate,” the city that willed the death of the president."
From here. This is such a piece of rubbish but it no longer amazes me that it is from the New York Times. A communist sympathizer, Lee Harvey Oswald, apparently acting as a lone gunman, murdered the nation's president. However, how is that a city by wishing, or thinking or magically forcing someone to act is a legitimate theme in a modern newspaper? Someone can not like or even hate a President's policies but remain civil and respectful counter force. But they were 50 years ago, my kinds of folks there....
in a white-collar enclave in a decidedly blue-collar state — often loathed the federal government at least as much as, if not more than, they did the Soviet Union or Communist China.
But horrendous violence despite some evidence that the right engages in some too, is part of portfolio of the left. Pol Pot, Mao and others have routinely killed millions though the evacuation of individual and economic liberty in their states as has those in the fascist camps. However, I find it difficult to buy that a political or economic philosophy that does not surrender economic or personal liberty and the voraciousness of that message is anyway something that show be convicted of a crime. It is how it should be. And in case those that choose to believe such chewy tripe as we find in this piece, one has to remember that Oswald was a Communist. A supporter of the the Soviet Union and Cuba and their economic models. One therefore may argue that it is in fact Socialism not Conservationism that is the true hater and ones that should be blamed for this specific tragedy.

This is a pretty good assessment of the USA today and the government that has its boot on our necks.

The BLS data is BS....

Government does not really want to report accurate economic numbers since they really have little real positive impact anyway. And they have actually been reporting wrong numbers on purpose as has been revealed in recent hours. Government should not be trusted any more and we should get rid of all this garbage.

Thought of the day....

The phrase “political correctness” was born as Communism was collapsing. I do not think this was chance. I am not suggesting that the torch of Communism has been handed on to the political correctors. I am suggesting that habits of mind have been absorbed, often without knowing it.
Limiting speech to politically correct speech, bludgeoning some folks as racist when one tries to distill speech into gobbledygook that makes the derivatives somehow appear racist and global warming are the tools used by those that do not deserve political power or who do not have legitimate power to wield more than they have earned. As communism failed, these are the tools that took its place.

Obamacare is doomed to fail.....

The Fatal Conceit: by Friedrich Hayek is a must read for those that think that government can actually make things better. As Wikipedia writes:
The book attempts to conclusively refute all forms of Socialism by demonstrating that socialist theories are not only logically incorrect but that the premises they use to form their arguments are incorrect as well. To Hayek the birth of civilization is due to the start of societal traditions placing importance on private property leading to expansion, trade, and eventually the modern capitalist system, also known as the extended order.[1] Socialists are wrong because they disregard the fact that modern civilization naturally evolved and was not planned. Additionally, since modern civilization and all of its customs and traditions naturally led to the current order and are needed for its continuance, any fundamental change to the system that tries to control it is doomed to fail since it would be impossible or unsustainable in modern civilization. Price signals are the only means of enabling each economic decision maker to communicate tacit knowledge or dispersed knowledge to each other, in order to solve the economic calculation problem.
Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and the government itself are all doomed to fail in coming decades. It will cost American's dearly for the illness of socialism that bedraggled the nation for 80 years or so. For many, it will cost them their lives.

Questioning the capability and compency of the US government is unpatriotic.....

Hey. Please stop being so against the American incompetent and tyrannical government. You are ruining the trust that takes decades to build. I for one am going to turn over a new leaf and trust my government completely without question. The NY Post convinced me and they hit the nail on the head. The treat to American trust.

CNN's Tapper: No Dems Will Talk to Us After Obamacare Numbers

Hard for Democrats to show their faces after this complete collapse in government and finally the proof that government has no place in people's economic lives. The bottom line as I have written many times before is that this government intervention in healthcare will make it more expensive, reduce availability and less effective. Normally government would just call this a another win, but they can no longer get away with that kind of nonsense anymore.

Former Fed Quantitative Easer Confesses, Apologizes: "I Can Only Say: I'm Sorry, America" | Zero Hedge

Central planning inevitably fails. It will fail here too. The interventions in the markets by the central banks around the world will destroy many nations and impoverish millions if not billions of people. But we cannot remove the opiates....
And the impact? Even by the Fed's sunniest calculations, aggressive QE over five years has generated only a few percentage points of U.S. growth. By contrast, experts outside the Fed, such as Mohammed El Erian at the Pimco investment firm, suggest that the Fed may have created and spent over $4 trillion for a total return of as little as 0.25% of GDP (i.e., a mere $40 billion bump in U.S. economic output). Both of those estimates indicate that QE isn't really working.
And it really didn't work. But we will pay for it and that is upcoming.

Obama denies videotaped "you can keep it" promises

If you like your healthcare pan, you can keep your healthcare plan. Period.

-Barack Obama, POTUS, 29 videotaped recordings over the past several years-
What does that actually mean according to a recent tortuous explanation..... “What we said was you could keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law was passed,” Oh really?????? What it means, is that if what you have, no matter what it is, the government will determine what you are allowed to buy and you better like it. This is what socialism and central planning is all about.

So what about the deception or lie as some wouls call it?

First, lying is presumably acceptable for Democrats (and Muslims) if it is part of a means to an end. This is what my father suggested to me years ago when I asked him about Bill Clinton and his sleazy ways. But my father would not discuss with me what those ends were. So, it must be acceptable to lie and maybe even cheat and steal if the ends are justified.

Second, since the Obamessiah is Black, he should not be held to a standard that the rest of us are held to since he is....Black. I don't get it and if you don't get it, then you are a racist.

Third, government is not capable of creating value, it will only redistribute what already exists. There will be folks that are winners in this redistribution and there will be losers. If the Obamamessiah did not lie about this, then the folks, particularly the losers, may not have found it acceptable. Now that the folks are finding out that they are being completely screwed, its too late. Its the law and the government is going to force this new system on you no matter what. As the philosopher Liebnitz opined, since this is the only possible world 'its the best of all possible worlds.' Voltaire hated this and would have hated what the United States has become.

Obama got carried away with health care reform: and is a disaster

I never doubted that socialized medicine in the US will end up being a complete and total disaster. The reason being is that central planning and socialism does not work. Also, government is incompetent and destroys the ability of people to make choices and decisions on their own and improving things over time through experimentation, success and failure.

Obama Said He's 'Really Good At Killing People' - Business Insider

President Obama Transforms Military In His Image By Firing 197 Officers

Traditionally in hard line authoritarian nations, it is imperative that the military be kept in line and this is usually done through periodic military purges. The goal being to ensure that military commanders support the government and act as enforcer against the populace if they start to protest.

The problem here, in my opinion is that the military does not respect the current president and this is the result of the president not respecting them.
