The collectivists will NEVER let that happen

And by “That”, I mean anything that undermines their centrally planned, leviathan owned, healthcare system destroying, economy crushing Obamacare scheme. The agenda is after all to destroy the healthcare system as we know it in the US so they can then peddle the single payer system they want. So the new republican proposal that actually would make changes to that wouldn’t destroy the healthcare system and the country economically will both be demonized and undermined to make sure it won’t interfere.

Thursday, we are unveiling our vision of policies that would strengthen our health care system while reducing federal spending and taxes. The Patient Choice, Affordability, Responsibility and Empowerment (CARE) Act outlines specific ideas that could replace Obamacare with more choices and higher quality, while protecting those with pre-existing conditions.

And that is why democrats want it to be DOA and will do everything to derail it. Not a fucking chance in the world that they would want something that actually fixes any of the problems they have managed to exacerbate with Obamacare. It undermines their powergrab and would make it obvious that’s what Obamacare was all about once it is implemented and works.

First, our plan would lower health care costs by empowering millions of lower and middle-income families with a refundable tax credit to purchase private health care coverage of their choice. They would no longer be subject to an individual mandate and limited to Washington-approved plans. Workers for small businesses would be eligible, too.

WTF? No central planning? No government meddling and use of force to comply? More importantly, you remove the politician’s ability to get their hands on money they let people borrow and deny them the ability to play with those people’s lives if they refuse to comply? Who is going to make sure insurance companies only make the profits that their masters in government fell are OK, huh? That’s insane!

By scrapping dozens of mandates, we estimate premiums would drop, on average, by double digits. We’d also reverse harmful changes that limited consumers’ ability to save and manage spending through health savings accounts and flexible spending accounts, and we’d encourage small-business insurance plans to give smaller employers better and more affordable options.

Are you fucking insane? Low premiums only help people, not the power hungry nanny state politicians! And why would you ever want to trust people to manage their money? Without the threat of force from government they will make the wrong choices, don’t you know? Affordability is something, according to Gruber in his rare moments of telling the truth, that you pretend you are giving people, but it is of no concern. Did the CBO even score this bad plan? What was the fixed/rigged system you gave them to make it look palatable, huh? We had a doozy when we got them to score Obamacare and make it look good. WTF do you have?

This sort of nonsense is what I expect to hear from them and their lackeys in the LSM. They will then follow it with the “But what about the poor people denied because of preexisting conditions that used to not be covered?”. Well:

What our plan would not allow is a return to the days before Obamacare when insurance companies turned away patients simply because they were sick.

Under our proposal, no patient could be denied coverage based on a pre-existing condition. We create a new “continuous coverage protection,” and if you change your job and buy a plan on your own, we would provide protections so you could not be denied coverage or be forced to pay a higher premium because of a pre-existing condition.

We would also ban insurance companies from imposing lifetime limits on a consumer, and we’d adopt age-rating changes, which lower costs for younger Americans. Individuals could stay on their parents’ health plan up to age 26, unless a state chose otherwise.

Oh snap! You have to wonder – no you don’t: I am being facetious – why the democrats didn’t do that and only that if they really cared about these people. People who because of the way Obamacare is set up can’t be denied but now can’t afford the care because of cost. Again: Obamacare was never about making healthcare affordable or available. It was about letting government get its hands on the money and decision making process, with the end game of crashing the existing system and then coming to the rescue with a single payer system they would otherwise never be able to sell anyone. It was just another giant wealth transfer scheme pretending to be something else.

Not only would our policies lower costs for patients, they would be good medicine for taxpayers. By scrapping Obamacare’s Washington-centered approach, we estimate our proposal would cut more than $1 trillion in taxes and reduce federal spending by hundreds of billions of dollars. All of Obamacare’s taxes would be scrapped, including the medical device tax, health insurance tax, pharmaceutical tax and other taxes masked as mandate fees.

In the coming months, the Supreme Court will hear and decide an important case regarding the president’s health care law, King v. Burwell. The justices should uphold the rule of law by overturning the administration’s unlawful decision to tax and spend through the federal exchanges. If they do so, we believe modifying and adopting some of the ideas outlined in our proposal could provide a path toward minimizing the disruption experienced by consumers.

Faster please. Kill this idiotic shit before it destroys the healthcare system and plunges the economy into an even more depressed state. Of course, getting this passed will be a monumental task, because the left will never admit that Obamacare is bad policy and that they had an agenda that wouldn’t be possible if it goes away.

I would not be surprised..

That Iran’s claim that the desperate pussies in the Obama administration are again acting like the pussies collectivist tend to always be, and then for clearly craven political reasons, is absolutely true. This administration is going to eventually be seen, when the historians finally actually get to look at the things they did, as one of the biggest failures ever. No amount of revisionist history, media cover for their fellow collectivists, or even sycophantic pandering by people willing to line up and suck Obama cock, just because of their “My Team,” feelings, will change that reality. They are desperate for something – anything – to show they are not the abject failures they are. Hence the constant stupidity and the dangerous display of absolute incompetence and weakness that leads to things like this. yeah, I bet they are begging Iran for a bone. Any bone.

I am going to rub it in. Back when the fucking leftards were telling us all how stupid Boosh’s cowboy diplomacy was and that what we needed was mature and capable collectivists to take over to fix things, I pointed out this was all bullshit. Leftards suck at foreign policy precisely because they hold such a high opinion of themselves that they believe they can do not just the improbable, but the impossible. Most people don’t remember the incompetence of the Carter years. Carter thought his good intentions and his willingness to do what feelers on the left think is the right thing would garner him the support of people not just with their own agenda, but of evil people. That’s why he was so butt-hurt when the Russians went into Afghanistan. Brezhnev had after all promised him that the USSR wouldn’t do that! Carter was a moron. And the bulk of people that share his idiotic and naive beliefs – which pretty much amounts to all collectivists and the democratic party as a singular entity these days – world view are always going to not only be surprised by the wolves in sheep’s clothing, but end up on the short end of any deal. Always.

Obama however has been far worse than Carter was. His administration has not only been more than willing to drop to their knees to suck the cocks of people that are clearly our enemies, but they have treated our allies, especially those that were considered our closest ones, with scorn and disdain on top of that. I have said it before and will say it again: At the risk of insulting amateurs, this administration’s foreign policy, and for that matter anything else other than their agenda to destroy the country, is amateur hour at the freak show. Not that these idiots will ever get called on it until long from now when historian take a look at the shit that went down and the damage it has caused will we finally understand how bad they were/are.

Why is this news to anyone?

Here comes the BOOM!

Us Debt Interest vs. Defense & Non-Defense discretionary spending

Take a good look at that graph above. The WSJ created that graph to show how interest payments on US debt will balloon as interest rates finally adjust. The fact of the matter is that our government has kept interest rates artificially low, through a slew of costly tricks, schemes, and scams, in order to keep interest payments low. And their success is debatable. They had to right the interest index, by removing the cost of fuel and food, while throwing billions at the problem in the form of QE and other such stupid schemes, to prevent the interest payment from going over $200 billion a year.

These government games have wrecked the economy and caused serious harm to the middle class, which has been punished for doing the right things. This all has happened while these programs have made the already rich richer and transferred a ton of wealth from the middle class to those that vote for a living. There is a class war going on in the US, but the left has targeted the middle class in order to expand their voter base: the non-productive. But let them keep borrowing despite the fact they are expecting an unprecedented windfall.

Our problem is twofold. First off, we have a shitty economy. Despite whatever they tell you that the numbers represent, the truth is that most new jobs are going to illegals, with over 18 million illegals now flooding our job market, and the 5.6% unemployment rate is a gross exaggeration that masks how bad things really are. If there was any reality to the claim of steady job growth and low unemployment, consumer spending wouldn’t be at its lowest since 2009 and there wouldn’t be a gloomy view of the future. But them is the facts.

Secondly, we fucking spend too much, mostly because the political class wants to buy votes from people impacted by the damage caused by the legislation enacted as a result of the vote buying agenda. Socialist paradises always end up with the same play book and results, and we are heading that way. We need to get spending under control, and the only way that happens is if we cock-block the vote buying schemes. Time is running out on us, and we have a choice between the people that think the answer is a bigger economy and less government spending, especially to improve the quality of life of people not working in the first place at the expense of the middleclass and those working, and those that feel the problem is government and government spending isn’t big enough because people are keeping too much of the government’s money.

There is an agenda, and it profits them, not us

Because of the controlled and lying media in the US, which is both scrutinized and attacked by the people in power if they don’t play ball with the left and this administration, we are forced to get the facts about how fucked up things are elsewhere. Most of the time we are only able to glean the facts through the miasma of smoke & mirrors created by the LSM from the foreign press. Especially when we are talking about the economy or the economic impact of the shit done by the statists currently in charge. Case in point, and article of all things in Al Jazeera, pointing out the effects of the past six years of social justice policies by the Obama administration and the left:

The first data on 2013 incomes show continuing bad news for Americans, my analysis of a new Internal Revenue Service report shows.

Average income fell 2.6 percent in 2013, even though the economy grew 3.2 percent in real terms over 2012.

Average inflation-adjusted income in 2013 was 8 percent lower than in 2007, the last peak economic year, and 6.9 percent less than in 2000, the year President George W. Bush set as the standard to evaluate the effect of his tax cuts and regulatory policies.

This is the latest sign of a disturbing trend. An ever-shrinking share of national income flows to individuals while corporate profits expand.

Yeah, you might want to take this with a grain of salt because the report is compiled by a politically motivated attack dog of this administration that has been proven to target and attack the enemies of the state and has an agenda. And Al Jazeera, despite the fact that it was dumped by Al Gore the climate warrior to a conglomerate of oil men, also suffers from some credibility problems because of its usual anti-American agenda. But the truth is that we can glean most of these details that back up how terribly unjust these “social justices” schemes and scams the left engages in, for profit, by ourselves, and with just a little bit of research. The leftists love big business and hate small business, and the actions of the last 6 years show that. It is nothing more than that whole central planning shit that worked so well for communist countries rearing its ugly head with our credentialed elite class. The leftists in charge have pissed away trillions of tax payer dollars pursuing this unicorn, and things are worse than they were before, especially for the middle class, which they absolutely want to eliminate in their vision of what an utopian society should look like.

TARP, for example, was nothing but an attempt to keep afloat those companies that because of a couple of decades of horrible politically motivated legislations and behind the scenes encouragement to engage in horribly stupid and risky lending practices, followed by government assisted laundering of the bad paper tied to these politically motivated schemes and scams, got in huge financial trouble when the house of cards came crumbling down. Tax payers footed the bill for the obvious consequence that indubitably always follow in the wake of social engineering attempts like this one. That was accompanied by the left, under the pretense of to wanting to fix the problem they caused in the first place, and in the most self serving way possible, producing a slew of new legislation that did nothing to address the fundamental underlying problem, only to then come full circle again. Tax payers better be ready to have another trillion dollar or more bill served to them, some time in the not too distant future, to correct for the same problem that caused the previous meltdown.

Then we had the trillion dollar Porkulus bill that served to do nothing more than funnel a shit-ton of money these crooks stole from the productive to democrat friends, activists, causes, or donors. From fucking over investors in favor of their union buddies at GM to pissing away billions on shitty green projects that went nowhere, many connected democrats and democrat friends made oodles of money, often at the expense of others. Democrat politicians were then richly rewarded for that largess with fat donation checks. A ton of criminal shit happened too – check out old New Jersey’s governor Jon Corazine and how a big donation to the Obama administration let him get away with the crime of the century – and is still going on. Big money pissed away making democrat élites and their connected buddies rich.

And let us not forget Obamacare, which is by far the best example of how fucked up these “social justice” scams are, and was only passed by lying to the public at large about what the real intent was. In a nutshell, Obamacare boils down to the crooks in government that want to destroy healthcare in America – so they can finally force the single payer system they can’t get otherwise on us – getting in a temporary arrangement with the very same evil insurance industry companies they blamed for the need to this shit for in the first place. How is that working out for you, huh? Stupid and envious idiots that bought the lies about other people – particularly the rich – paying for this, are now all shocked that they are the ones getting slammed in the ass with the costs. And the high price all comes with very little to show for. Wait until this mess plays itself out to see how much damage it will do to the middle class.

I can go on and on about how horrible things are for everyone but the liberal elite and their connected friends, but you should get the picture by now. That is, unless you are one of the true believers of this collectivist bullshit cult’s “social justice” nonsense. My one consolation is, unless you happen to be one of the lucky freeloaders, that the damage being done is fucking you envious collectivist a-holes over just as hard as it is me. And even the free loaders are going to be screwed by the left’s desire to fuck us over with millions of illegal immigrants they hope will become good democrat voters in return for tax payer provided largesse.

At least my 401(k) is soaring for now because of this unholy union between the collectivists and the big business conglomerates. The problem is that might not last long either considering that these collectivists already are trying to raid the savings of the middle class to keep their unicorn on life support for a little longer.

The lesson here is that “social justice”, like many other such collectivist buzz words, is really code for criminal behavior.

Obama, Man of Contradictions

Last week, Alex put up a good takedown of the talking points from Obama’s State of Union Monarchial Address. But I’ve thinking about it for a week and there’s one thing I keep circling back to:

Almost everything that Obama claims credit for has come from policies he opposed.

A list of the things that Obama is claiming credit for it too long for a blog post since I’m pretty sure he’s now claiming credit for the sun continuing to rise. And that’s understandable: a good job description of “President of the United States” would be “someone who takes credit for anything good that happens”. But you can burrow down to several specific things he’s crowing about. And the striking this is that almost all of them are the result of policies he has opposed.

First, Obama took credit for the shrinking budget deficit. Putting aside that it’s easy to shrink a deficit after you’ve exploded it, the progress on the deficit, such as it is, has come from things Obama or his liberal travelers opposed — budget rescissions and the sequester. And it came without the thing they insisted was needed: massive tax hikes on the rich. The reason the deficit is smaller is because Republicans held the line on spending, keeping the level of spending flat for the last four years despite endless and repeated demands from Obama and the Democrats for ever more “stimulus” spending. The Keynesians out there, having caught their breath from screaming about how sequestration would wreck the economy, are now screaming that the 2009 stimulus finally worked, six years down the road. Whatever supports their bias, I guess.

(It should also be noted that the deficit may start rising again as soon as next year because of the failure to address entitlement spending.)

Obama also took credit for falling gas prices and booming oil production. But oil production on Federal land has actually fallen over his tenure. And he has opposed new energy projects like Keystone XL. His party has opposed fracking and just got it suspended in New York on dubious environmental justification. This is the man who, in 2012, specifically said we couldn’t drill our way out of this and that $2 gas was a fantasy. To be fair, I think the low in gas prices is temporary and prices will start rising again. But the overall point remains: increased oil production was not supposed to either be possible or to help with the energy crunch. And how does Obama reconcile this energy boom with his demand for restrictions on fossil fuel exploitation to combat global warming? He doesn’t. He simply talks out of both sides of his mouth.

(Speaking of global warming, Obama touted the agreement with China. But as I pointed out at the time, the CO2 reductions under that agreement are ones we were likely to meet anyway due to things that having nothing to do with Barack Obama: increased fracking and improvements in energy efficiency in the private sector.)

The biggest boast from Obama was about the economy, which had its healthiest quarter in 15 years. Obama is spiking the football on the economy and that’s understandable, given the howling recession he inherited. But the improvement of the economy came not when we got the stimulus, not when we got Obamacare, not when we passed Dodd-Frank but when we stopped persuing Obama’s agenda. Stimulus spending stopped. Subsidies stopped. Keynesian bullshit stopped. And suddenly, we’re doing better.

In fact, we’re just now finding out that a particularly vital piece of liberal received wisdom may have been garbage:

How much did cutting unemployment benefits help the labor market?

Quite a bit. There is a new NBER Working Paper on this topic by Hagedorn, Manovskii, and Mitman, showing (once again) that most supply curves slope upward, here is one key part from the abstract:

In levels, 1.8 million additional jobs were created in 2014 due to the benefit cut. Almost 1 million of these jobs were filled by workers from out of the labor force who would not have participated in the labor market had benefit extensions been reauthorized.

There is an ungated copy here (pdf). Like the sequester, this is another area where the Keynesian analysts simply have not proven a good guide to understanding recent macroeconomic events.

You see that? When the Republicans said that extended unemployment benefits were keeping people out of work, they were pilloried for it as heartless ignorant savages. We were told it was cruel to cut off unemployment benefits based on half-baked theories of labor. Now this is only a working paper, not a refereed one. But the simple fact is that the labor market has surged as unemployment benefits were cut off.

I’m willing to give Obama credit for some things. It’s true that more people are insured. But that tends to happen when you make being uninsured against the law (excuse me, subject to a tax). And the expense of insuring those people has proven as steep as skeptics predicted. And I’ll give him some credit for drawing down our overseas commitments (although the idea that we are out of Afghanistan is laughable). And … um … I’ll even give him credit for part of the achievements above. He did, after all, agree to the sequester. I’ll agree that the stock market is booming. But it wouldn’t be if Obama had gotten his demands for more taxes on capital gains, a financial transactions tax and a push to address income inequality.

But Obama’s biggest achievements are not his … or at least not his alone. The lion’s share of the credit has to go to the Republican Congress for ignoring everything he wanted to do. They didn’t restrict energy exploration, they didn’t pass more dunder-headed stimulus spending, they did hold spending flat, they did cut off unemployment benefits. Every single one of those things was predicted to be a disaster and yet none of those disasters have materialized. And now Obama and his Keynesian allies want to claim credit.

I don’t expect this to matter to the Democrats. Keynesian economics, command-and-control regulation, the wisdom of the welfare state — these things are articles of faith. But the evidence that they work — least of all that they deserve credit for the “Obama economy” — is scant to say the least.

Gas prices, the ppb of oil, and the future

I filled up my car today and paid $2.11 a gallon here in The People’s Republic of Connecticut. In some other parts of the nation that don’t have ridiculously high government imposed gas taxes – taxes that they claim they will use to fix the crumbling infrastructure and ill maintained infrastructure they have held tenure over, but somehow always end up in the general fund where they then get spent on vote buying social pet projects – this number is now below $2 a gallon. The last time I remember oil under $2 a gallon was a decade ago. But why is this happening? There are a ton of varying opinions about cause and effect out there. Let’s explore.

First off, the obligatory democrats are always talking out of their ass reference. They knew they were full of shit, we knew it, and because despite every and all efforts by the Obama administration failing to hinder the expansion of US oil recovery, we got more drilling, we now have definite proof. Collectivist Keynesian shitbags can pretend that the economic laws of supply and demand don’t matter – like they do with the reality of human nature and a lot of other natural laws – but reality has a way of bitch-slapping stupid people. You fuckers knew you were lying when you were pretending more oil on the market would not reduce prices, and we now have proven it. The opposition to any more drilling and recovery was primarily because these Marxists fucks want to destroy the brown energy industry to favor their friends, and coincidentally another one of their special interest big donor blocks, in the proven failed green industry.

Back to business now that we have gotten that out of the way. This precipitous price drop, even though I believe it will not remain that low forever (more about that later), is bound to jump start our economy and help a lot of us that now will have extra pocket change. And it doesn’t come without the profiteers trying to screw over the tax payers yet again. The leftists, under the guise of getting more money to fix the very infrastructure they have been neglecting for decades, precisely because they were diverting gas tax dollars to social pet projects, are putting pressure on everyone to get more money from people that are finally getting a much needed and deserved break in the though economic times the leftists have given us.

As if this time the bulk of this extra revenue wouldn’t actually also be diverted to vote buying projects they depend on. Yeah, and pigs will fly too. These assholes count on people’s stupidity and envy. Think about how these will impact us all once prices climb again – and they will. Let us also note that this money grab is not limited to the feds. Many state governments, especially the ones run by democrats that do the same as the feds (like mine), are all hoping to follow that example and do the same. Can’t have people keeping more of their money when they need to buy votes in these desperate times that their base consists of so many of the non-productive. It is almost as if these people’s decision making is based on what can do the most economic harm possible. Of course, when you already believe the money doesn’t belong to the people earning it in the first place, you tend to not bother with these stupid details anyway.

Now that we have gotten that nasty business out of the way, let’s discuss why the prices are dropping as precipitously and fast as they are. The general consensus is that the Saudis are doing this, and it is on purpose. The Saudis, OPEC’s biggest producers, have decided not to cut their output to regulate prices, and are counting on their over $800 billion in reserves to ride out this shorting of the market. The move to let the oil prices plummet is basically driven by their calculated belief that if the price goes too low it will force fledgling the US oil industry, especially the fracking industry that the Russians had been directly targeting without much success so far, I add, to collapse.

The Saudis, like most of the other OPEC nations and Russia, all need oil to be at between $90 and $100 a barrel to keep their current economic plans viable. The supply produced by the US has basically made that impossible, because the extra oil was sooner than later going to force a correction that would drop prices and keep them between $65 to $75 per barrel. And while that drop is something that would be an economic boon to most of the world that depends on oil for energy, it would spell a slow economic death for the oil producing nations that need/want the higher prices. Have no doubt that this move is a calculated attack on the US oil industry. The Saudis are counting that if they keep the prices below $50 a barrel for a while that they can drive the US out of the oil producing. Even more important is their belief that the greens will then prevent that oil producing industry from coming back for decades. This gamble that the greens will prevent the oil production from starting right back up again is based on their observation of how things played out in the 70s, and while many believe that this time it will not work, I think that their gamble isn’t all that crazy. The greens, after all, want to destroy the brown energy sector and don’t give two flying fucks how costly and destructive their agenda is, because in the end it is about them lining their pockets above all else. Most of the big actors have become stinking rich fucking us all over.

The fact is that this economic boon they will usher in and the low gas prices themselves can’t last as the demand and supply curve correct themselves eventually. But then again, we can make some economic moves that will preposition us to come out of this attack against our economy and economic interests, as the winners. The fact is that anything that keeps the price of oil lower than the $90 to $100 per barrel that the actors behind this attack want is a good thing. Lower prices would be a huge hit that forces some of the world’s shittiest nations to change their ways, for lack of funds to cause trouble with, to at a minimum do less harmful things. That would be a big bonus for the world in general. Of course I doubt this administration and the collectivists that are in league with the greens have any desire to do so, and they will actually do things that will undermine that possibility. We need to make sure we push back and prevent them from doing that. Cheap energy is exactly what the world needs right now, just like it needs a lot less big intrusive Keynesian nanny-state government.

In the mean time enjoy this gift for as long as it is allowed to last by the people that want to control us serfs.

Deja Vu of collectivist stupidity

I admit I didn’t even bother watching the freak show, because I figured it was going to be more of the same, and I was not disappointed. From what I have read and seen now, I can tell that the man is just full of shit, talks out of both sides of his mouth, has a forked tongue, again showed why he is a narcissistic a-hole, by peddling the same trope the left has been peddling for decades: envy and jealousy. Pathetic.

The Washington Times points out that he calls for civility, then taunts. What’s new about that? I mean this has been the guy for 7 years. The Weekly Standard points out that in typical democrat fashion Obama attacks campaign donations, then proceeds to ask for them. The fact that these people that cry the loudest about the evils of donations – but specifically donations to their opponents – isn’t either new or news. These are after all the people that usually want to ban corporate money but see no problem with union money. They are also the people that denigrate and attack the rich, but get the most money from them and as the last 7 years show. do the things that make those rich people richer. The Washington Times also points out that in typical petulant child fashion, Obama managed to tell those evil republicans that just won the last electoral cycle with massive popular support that he was going to take his ball home if they didn’t let him win the game. This has been president “I won”, after all, and by now everyone should know that when they talk about working together or bipartisan efforts, democrats always mean “do what I want”.

This thing was such a snooze fest of the usual collectivist trope that even Ruth Bader Ginsburg seems to have nodded off. There were some highlights though. The Examiner points out that while Obama touted the left’s “War on Womenz” meme and again talked about the pay disparity, that the misleading and false statistics they usually use to back their cherry picking up was not repeated this time. Maybe this had something to do with that. Obama had so much good to say about our clearly broken secondary education system, but that is because, as Glen H. Reynolds has pointed out repeatedly, these institutions are one of the collectivist’s biggest donor blocks.

Fox News does a good job explaining what we saw, and that was that after this last electoral cycle’s shellacking, Obama went back to the usual democrat talking points. More class warfare – preying on the envious and the jealous works – and more taxing the productive and spending to buy votes from those that vote for a living, because that serves the country so well. Basically we got another “Give me your votes and I will give you free shit” donkey speech. Old and tired shit. If you like me just parodied what you expected an old collectivist twit would say and then watched something else, you didn’t miss much and were probably dead on.

Obama has managed to make my predictions that democrats in power would by their very actions sooner than later make sane people realize they are nothing but snake oil salesmen robbing Peter to pay Paul, while bagging a huge chunk of that change, back when everyone was talking about evil rethuglicans and Boosh, come true, and then without a shadow of doubt. I would love to rub it in people’s faces, but then again, when I look at the path of destruction these crooks have left in their wake, I don’t find much pleasure even in that.

When you suck, double down on what makes you suck.

The once victorious left is getting its ass handed to it after showing the world how fucked up the shit they believe in is in practice in just a short 6 year span. Oh don’t get me wrong. The LSM has tried real hard to hide the damage being caused, but it has failed. Who still believes anything done by this administration fixed anything? I mean, we have had the LSM telling us for 6 years now how the recession was over and things were getting better. Sure, if you are one of the people that votes for a living or an ultra rich lib connected to this administration, you have made out real well – at the expense of future generations that will now have to pay for that deficit spending – but if you are middle class, you have been shafted by these crooks and know better. If there have been economic boons, it has been despite anything done by the Obama administration and the left.

Take energy for example. The US is now producing and exporting more oil than ever, and it has had an incredible impact on that racket. As a result of that the oil prices the democrats spent years telling us would remain unaffected by anything that would increase oils supply – such as more drilling in the US, fracking and shale oil recovery, Xcel pipeline, you name it – have plummeted, giving most Americans a needed break. Don’t worry though, because democrats in DC are already talking about increasing the taxes on gasoline. Their reasoning is that since the infrastructure is falling apart higher taxes can address it. Of course, the fact that what they collect is misappropriated and misspent disproves this nonsense. This drilling, fracking, and any effort related to increased oil production has happened despite an anti fossil fuel agenda by the left. Let me remind you of the billions these fucks pissed away on green bullshit, Obama’s efforts to destroy the coal industry, and the fact that they admit they want high energy prices so people are forced to give up comfort, convenience, and even basic needs to live like the leftist twits believe us peons should. There must be a god above that has not only allowed us to overcome this nefarious activity, but has shown without any doubt, that the left is inimical to energy and growth.

There are other things that they have done that are downright destructive despite any claims to the contrary. There has constantly been talk, and it has been lots of talk and very little action, about fixing the economy and creating jobs. But what has been done serves only to further the left’s political agenda at the expense of us people. Exhibit A- Obamacare has been a disaster and promises to cause incalculable damage, so much so, that democrats are running from it. It was passed by a clique with an agenda, in secrecy, based on a campaign of obfuscation and lies that mirror a cheap soap opera, pretending to want to help people and lower costs, while really basically implementing a debacle that has as its end goal the destruction of the American healthcare system so the left can finally implement their despicable single payer solution. The real damage this thing will cause is yet to come.

The left and their lackeys in the LSM have spent a lot of effort and time trying to tell us that all the part-time and McJobs created by the supposed recovery they seem to be the only ones to see – one that has also been labeled a jobless recovery in contradiction to their claims of job creation if things are not confusing enough– are good things for showcasing the left’s economic agenda. Of course we don’t heart a lot about jobs these days with the democratic party’s agenda of rewarding millions of law breaking illegals not just with legitimacy in the US, but with benefits paid for by the productive in return for votes. The truth is however that sucking at the government’s teat pays better than work in the age of Obama, and that’s the left’s legacy. They buy votes at the expense of the productive and the nations’ future. When you have so many people that believe they are owed just for existing and that work is for chumps, you are doomed. Of course, this is what the left lives off: it’s not an accidental by product, but what they need to keep their hold on power.

I can go on and on about economic damage. From the Dodd-Frank 2000 page behemoth and the fact that the fundamental and underlying problem – that government is in bed with lenders so they can buy favors from people that never should qualify for loans with the tax payer left holding the bag when the shit hits the fan as it has to – which Obama is about to do away with, to the IRS being used to target political enemies of the nanny state and the left, these criminals have undermined our nation and economy. Trillions are pissed away buying votes from a plethora of programs which primarily serve to bolster the lefts hold on power and on us peons. I stress again that any positive we have seen has happened despite their actions and agenda, and is a sign of the resiliency and strength of the American people. But the damage goes beyond the economic.

The class warriors are constantly decrying the affair of things. The world is unfair – that’s true – and they will fix it! That last one is plain bullshit and a despicable lie. They will fix nothing at all, and anything they tell you they plan to do should immediately be suspect. Take for example the revelation about public school students living in poverty. This has happened because of leftist policies. Public schools have seen an exodus of anyone that could do it because 5 decades of liberal control have devastated the system.

Education has been dumbed down and turned into nothing more than liberal indoctrination writ large. Students no longer are expected to perform and the important stuff has been replaced with liberal feel good bullshit, making the whole thing an exercise in futility. Consequently, the only people left- especially in the most broken public schools system which are predominantly in urban areas – are those that can’t afford to go elsewhere. The narcissistic leftards will claim we don’t spend enough on education, but that’s bullshit. More money, which is always their answer will do nothing to address the fact that teaching in most public schools is sub par because of the emphasis on the left’s indoctrination agenda over education.

And our problem with education isn’t restricted to our public school system. Our higher education system is also suffering from the very same problem. What once was considered a hallmark of future success, a college education, today amounts to nothing more than a license to ask people if they want fries with that. The old concept of a classical education – a means to teach people to think and solve problems – has been replaced with liberal indoctrination of low end value that despite the exorbitant cost leaves the candidates woefully unprepared to do anything other than ask people if they would like fries with that. How many social, womenz, or other bullshit studies degrees does a workforce need, huh? How many teaching jobs are out there to justify all the people with history, literature, or other such specialized degrees that might emphasize their passions, but leave little room to make a living? How smart is going into debt, to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars, for a degree that won’t guarantee you a better employment opportunity or the ability to earn enough to live and pay back what you borrowed?

The left, which profits from the existing broken system, doesn’t want to make colleges responsible for the money these institutions so freely pass out to people they know might not ever graduate or be able to pay it back with the degree they are pursuing, or to fix things so the educational value is there. The same applies to the public education system: anything that undermines their indoctrination agenda is DOA. Agenda over substance or results.

I remember when it was the religious right that was accused of wanting to legislate their morality. Today the intolerant left is straddling us with things ranging from speech codes to detailed rules about sexual behavior at college. The range of abuses of power, culminating in the record setting decline of the last 7 years, are so deep and broad that I would need weeks and hundreds of pages to just briefly touch upon them. In short, the left has spent but 6 years doing what it does to squander any and all support it had from those that were not already beholden special interests, and even amongst those, there has been a drastic erosion of support.

Queue the reason for this long post: the coming state of the union and the fact that the left is going to go back to the tried and true class, race, gender, and other envy and jealousy based tropes that coalesce its base, and Obama trying real hard to pass himself off as a man of the people by playing Robin Hood. Let me remind all of you that Robin Hood didn’t fight the rich: he fought corrupt and abusive government. He fought a government that taxed excessively and then to return what was stolen to its rightful owner. There was no wealth transfer scheme at play there. If you want a more apt comparison of Obama and what the left are up to, look towards the old USSR. That’s what they are basically doing. There is no nobility or good at work here. It is all about power and counting on the basest and vilest of human emotions – jealousy and envy – to manipulate sheep. Pay careful attention to what has really happened as democrats got to do what they wanted before you let them fool you yet again. Democrats are about rewarding bad behavior and punishing good ones, because they count on people being children for them to get and keep power.

This move is desperation at work. It’s so they can cry foul and blame the republicans when this goes nowhere in congress. Fuck the left.

Hollywood elites shows why they are douchebags

Clint Eastwood made a pro-US/pro-military movie, and like with everything the guy does, it is kicking ass and taking names, and as expected it is pissing off the liberal cunts that hate both and they are whining about it.

The problem is that these liberal elites think the idea of a good war movie is one where America and Americans are painted as the bad guys, or at a minimum as dolts that do evil things because they are too stupid to know better, and anything that says otherwise, especially when it ends up earning at the box office unlike the crap they produce and like, needs to be cock blocked. This is a move made out of desperation and envy, and what they are really questioning isn’t the content of the movie, but the fact evil Americans prefer the stuff that makes America look good over the bullshit they want to peddle.

Let me remind you that this is not the only genre of movies that Hollywood struggles with: religion movies produce the same results and problems for them. They are furious that movies of any kind that contradict the liberal narrative and idiotic beliefs does well. They have pissed away millions making junk movies with the liberal message only to watch them flop. The narrative then was America had no stomach for this stuff. Then someone like Eastwood puts out a movie on the subject and the thing rocks, crumbling the whole house of cards they have spent so much efforts erecting.

Hollywood’s problem is that liberal douchebags have been trying to push the liberal agenda in the drivel they pass off a deep cinema, and they have failed to garner the support they believe they are due, and anything that gets in the way of that narrative – America is bad, Americans are bad if they are not liberal pussies, and that the drivel the left beliefs in is what is real despite the evidence to the contrary – must be attacked. Fuck them. The best way to do has been laid out for us too: watch the stuff that is good and ignore the liberal drivel. Money talks, and their bullshit can walk. The fuckwads in Hollywood have tried to kill off anyone and anything that doesn’t conform to the liberal agenda, and people like Eastwood and the movies he makes will always be attacked for failing to comply.

The tears of liberal pansies are ambrosia. Enjoy them. Go Clint!

Frosting on a turd still means you are getting a turd

Seven years of the left being in charge have devastated support for the stupid shit they believe in and do in the US, so with people turning away from them in droves, the left’s now banking on rewarding millions of criminals that jumped our borders with residency or citizenship and numerous other tax payer paid for perks. Of course, this plan is not playing well with any of the traditional democrat support groups whom correctly diagnose that it will not just cripple their economic opportunity, but make the piece of the pie available for the freeloaders much smaller. Though times, but have no fear, because because Obama has a plan to buy votes yet again. Here is the first line of the article:

President Barack Obama’s proposal for free community college tuition is either a game changer or an empty promise. It just depends who you ask.

Me, based on all the other promises these idiots have made, will go with the later: it is a heaping pile of bullshit masquerading as gourmet food. Free college is idiotic and will solve nothing. College used to be a way for those with more than the average skillset to show they met a certain bar for employment in careers that required more than just intelligence, dedication, hard work, and ingenuity. The ugly truth is that not everybody is college worthy, and we should admit so instead of pretending otherwise. The left decided that the problem to their economy bursting policies and agenda was to make everyone get a college degree, regardless if they had the aptitude, skills, or actually needed it to do what they could find as prospective employment. In the process they have completely diluted the value of a college degree and education. And they did it while dumbing down primary education to the point that too many college applicants ended up woefully unprepared and unqualified for what came next.

With the economy going south and a rigged systems letting people with no chance of completing a college degree of any worth still indebt themselves to in the end fail, the left’s solution is to make the productive pay for this burden. This is the way it used to be in Europe. I said “used to be”, because that’s no longer the case. The days of spending 6-10 years at a university studying crap that would not lead to any kind of gainful employment are over. Students now have to graduate in allotted times and they have to pay for most of their education. More importantly, they have quotas for each type of college degree. You can’t have 50K history students if there are 5K jobs waiting for them. The funny thing that bears mentioning however, is that their tax burden, which was implemented for things like free healthcare and free education, neither of which is anything resembling free anymore, remains the same. Who would have thunk it huh? All that money now goes to pay for people that sit on their ass and can’t work, a whole lot of them with 10 year college degrees in worthless fields of studies, and for a political and bureaucratic monster that adds little or no value.

So back to Obama’s free community college plan. Many people see the emperor with no clothes’ plan for what it is – nothing but a desperate attempt by democrats to both help out one of their biggest donor groups keep their house of cards from facing the reality of the times and keep the wheels on the indoctrination train – and of course, as soon as that was pointed out, the accusations, desperate and veiled tried to make it about race.

Frankly I believe that less people going to college and government getting out of the racket of subsidizing the indoctrination centers and paying off one of the democratic party’s biggest donor blocks would do wonders to improve the higher education racket. The best move they could make is to hold colleges and universities accountable for the loans incurred by the students. Students that fail out should automatically have colleges become financially liable for at least half of what they now owe in student loans. Those that graduate with degrees that only let them find employment asking people if they would like fires with that should similarly have recourse against the school that charged them an arm and a leg for what amounts to a worthless degree. Of course, something like this would spell the end of so many of the left’s specialized grievance rackets passed off as education these days. It would however help those that somehow show they are better prepared and qualified to attend college.

Spare the American tax payer of another bad and costly mistake. Tell Obama to stick to golfing and talking about how racist everyone that disagrees with him is.
