PostSubject: Running the USA into the Ground   Fri Dec 23, 2011 4:51 am

Running the USA into the Ground

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I needed a mattress cover so I went over to the local dollar store today and discovered they have them in every size but twin. I returned home. I went online to Bed, Bath and beyond. With a few keystrokes I not only had the exact item I wanted, I also received an email confirmation of the sale and a notice that once shipped, I will be able to track its delivery from the warehouse to my front door.



If only the federal government operated with such efficiency. Instead, we have a government that has been operating on “continuing resolutions” for over a thousand days due to a lack of a budget. An essential job of the executive branch is to produce a budget, but if you don’t have one, you can egregiously waste billions.

Everybody else has a budget, but not the federal government.

As we head into an election year, even more political madness and maneuvering will ensue. As a Wednesday editorial in The Wall Street Journal said:



“The GOP leaders have somehow managed the remarkable feat of being blamed for opposing a one-year extension of a tax holiday that they are surely going to pass. This is no easy double play. Republicans have also achieved the small miracle of letting Mr. Obama position himself as an election-year tax cutter, although he’s spent most of his Presidency promoting tax increases and he would hit the economy with one of the largest tax increases ever in 2013. This should be impossible.”

Serendipitously, the Journal also ran an opinion by Peter J. Wallison, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

“The Securities and Exchange Commission’s lawsuits against six top executives of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, announced last week, are a seminal event. For the first time in a government report, the complaint has made it clear that the two government-sponsored enterprises played a major role in creating the demand for low-quality mortgages before the 2008 financial crisis.”

“More importantly, the SEC is saying that Fannie and Freddie—the largest buyers and securitizers of subprime and other low-quality mortgages—hid the size of their purchases from the market. Through these alleged acts of securities fraud, they did not just mislead investors; they deprived analysts, risk managers, rating agencies and even financial regulators of vital data about market risks that could have prevented the crisis.”

One member of Congress, among many who protected Fannie and Freddie, who will not be indicted, is Rep. Barney Frank who is retiring with full pension and benefits, no doubt more wealthy than he arrived.

A new book by Peter Schweizer, the William J. Casey Fellow at the Hoover Institute is titled, “Throw Them All Out: How Politicians and Their Friends Get Rich off Inside Stock tips, Land Deals, and Cronyism that would Send the Rest of Us to Prison.” At this point, the only bipartisan activity in Congress is the way, on both sides of the aisle our elected representatives increase their personal wealth. The book so rattled Congress it is now holding hearings on the extraordinary premise of requiring its members to obey the same laws as the rest of us!

A familiar theme of those of us that comment on government is its size, its waste of public funds, and its general inefficiency. It is a government that sends millions in checks to dead people. It is a government that has turned the process of flying anywhere into a nightmare because of its one-size-fits-all idiotic approach to getting on an airliner. The Israelis accomplish this with far less inconvenience to passengers and their system works.

My contention is that our metastasizing government has gotten progressively worse from the days of the Great Depression and now we learn—if we did not already know—that it was two “government sponsored enterprises” that brought about the mortgage crisis that plunged the nation into a pretty good imitation of the Great Depression.

Now we are forced to watch Congress play political gamesmanship while millions of Americans are out of work.

Now not a week goes by without another “green” enterprise going belly-up, taking our money with it or one of those wonderful electric cars has batteries that are likely to catch fire. The Mackinac Center for Public Policy just released a report that estimates that each of the Chevy Volt cars sold thus far has as much as $250,000 in state and federal dollars in incentives behind it—a total of $3 billion thus far. We never needed electric cars.

What kind of idiocy throws money away when the U.S. sits atop reserves of oil that are so vast they could end imports?

What kind of President refuses to permit Canada to ship its ample oil to Houston for refining?

Why are we holding our breath hoping that Congress will let us purchase Thomas Edison’s incandescent light bulbs, one of the greatest inventions of the modern era?

Little wonder that the polls demonstrate the record-setting low esteem in which Congress is held. It is running the nation into the ground. To the belated astonishment of everyone, the nation is led by the President whose greatest achievements have been to destroy jobs and plunge the nation into unimaginable debt.

November 6, 2012 cannot come soon enough.

A majority of the electorate wanted “change” in 2008. Let’s give it to Congress in 2012. Let’s support candidates who want to significantly reduce the size of the federal government, restructure the “entitlement” programs, and reduce the debt before it impoverishes the next generation and the one to follow.

All we have to do is find canidates that are not corrupt and have no intentions to be. Fat chance! We are witnessing the fall of the greatest world power in history. It was bound to happen. I can only say that I am happy to have been born when I was and not later. I was able to live in a better time. Not like the poor souls that were born 30 or so years later. At least I was able to experiance nature in a purer form, loving parents, loving teachers teaching a wholesome venue, living in a home in a time when we did not have to lock our doors, not even in the daytime. I was able to live when America was still basking in the truimph of victory over the Nazies that are now about ready to seize control of our country, our freedoms and our livelyhood. It's a shame I feel this way. They can take it all from me, but they can not seize my memories of the younger me.

I am not even sure I will allow them to take it from me! What I remember when I was young was walking to school and walking home after it was over. Our doors were not locked and everyone on the route to school knew the kids and who they belonged to. Never was any problems and it was just a different time! JMHO!!

When I was in school if you did not live more than 2 miles from school....you walked. No big deal it was a good wholesome time to live. Doo Wop on the radio...or Hank Williams, Ernie Kovaks, Red Skelton, or the Honeymooner on tv. Sock Hops, drive-ins. All good stuff. Grandparents teaching of the ways of the world and telling of their childhood memories and of family history. I has been a very good life.

So do I. If only we could do the same in these sorry times. Make everything good again. Not that there wasn't corruption and bigotry then, it just was not so wide spread.

Don't think it was as public back then as it is now! JMHO!! It went on as it has for all time but not everyone knew about it instantly like they do now!

Don't believe so! Like I said, the percentage of bad boys was as large if not more but the indiscretions were not made as public as they are now. The publicity was not as widespread and as immediate as it is now but the stuff behind the scenes went on all the time. Remember that mail by pony express used to take days to reach the other side of the continent. Today, email has the same message and more across the world within seconds! Same principle when the political candidates and serving politicians are exposed and raked over the coals for their behavior within hours after it happens. JMHO!!

I can wish cant I? I guess you are right, after I thought about it. It's been like this since the early 1800's I suppose.

I don't expect it to change at all! In fact, it might get worse because of the wide spread instant publicity now! JMHO!!

Greed holds an upper hand in this world and you are right in what you say. It most likely will get worse. It seems they, in DC all have the same agenda.

Kind of a stupid way to run an organization if you ask me. I think I would rather get EVERYONE working producing good American made proucts. That way we could compete on a global scale. If someone does not want to work than put them down like a sick or crippled animal.

It is a given that if we want to survive we are going to have to stop buying all that import crap! Cannot continue to give away our technology and research without being compensated for it! Let them go out and develop it on their own and then try to compete with us on an equal footing. Can't be done if we will just stop giving away the farm!

I totally agree and hopefully with the right people in the Whitehouse and in those theive's dens called the Senate and Congress it may be a doable thing.
