Big Capitalism Soars As The New Communist Fascism

APITALISM IS NO LONGER the doting parentage we in the West grew up with in the 40s-60s.The one that gave rise to the middle class standards of living which became defined as the American Dream. Instead, one may say that America is becoming a Capitalistic Socialist nation. The combining of pure authoritarian communism and the power and capital of capitalism. This was the famous writer Jack London's fear back in the early 1930s just before he perished of alcoholism. When has a corporation ever been run like a democracy? Never! The CEO is the dictator authoritarian in charge, the upper...

Chaos: The Harbinger Of Order

HEN THE BANKS STOP LENDING and the dollar drops dead, the leonine principles of chaos will pounce upon us, claws poised, teeth bared. But as horrible as that bit of declarative sounds to the victims of chaos, there may still be a ray of sunshine for America and in turn, hope for humanity, and that hope is presented here in an adaptation of a wonderful comment by a reader at American Thinker in response to an article on The Coming Chaos. John Griffing has stated the obvious and drawn a single conclusion among many possibilities—avoid default of the American debt...


National Debt Made Simple

HE US CONGRESS SETS a federal budget every year (Before Obama*) in the trillions of dollars. Few people know how much money that is so we created a breakdown of federal spending in simple terms. Let’s put the 2011 federal budget into perspective: * US income: $2,170,000,000,000 * Federal budget: $3,820,000,000,000 * New debt: $1,650,000,000,000 * National debt: $14,271,000,000,000 * Recent budget cut: $38,500,000,000 (about 1 percent of the budget) It helps to think about these numbers in terms that we can relate to, so let’s remove eight zeros from these numbers and pretend this is the household budget for...

Shrink That Thing

There are more than 1300 federal agencies in our guvmint. I've got an idea. Close 10 per week; select them with a lottery; it will take more than 2 years to close them all. Give the federal employees 30 days to tell the American people what they do for us and how much it costs; propose private sector entrepreneurial endeavors that are of value to us. Then Congress, after consulting the people, can pass bills to consolidate, streamline, and make competitive with industry, every guvmint agency; ten at a time. That’ll keep 'em busy doing the people’s work. And, it...
