Can the American people really be this stupid?
Can they really be this gullible?

“All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach.”
Adolf Hitler

“By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise.”
Adolf Hitler

Scary indeed.

Senator Elizabeth Warren Hasn’t a Clue

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusettes) believes, and wants you to believe, that Republicans want to defund Obamacare because of birth control. That Republicans want to change the law to stop women from getting birth control. This woman is an idiot. Do these people listen to the nonsense coming out of their mouths. I guess when you’re speaking to those who are so misinformed and confused themselves, it’s easy to sell such nonsense.

BO’s Government Run Candy Shop

leave a comment »

For more than one hundred years Harry’s Candy Store stood at the corner of Main Street and Liberty Way. Harry III was the fourth generation to own the family business. Harry provided a wide range of new and old fashioned candy. People came from miles around, some from other countries, to buy the quality candy that Harry offered.

One day, the Government decided that everyone should be entitled to candy. They believed that no one should ever be forced to go without candy. They also believed that if they ran the candy business, they could provide candy for everyone.

Many people became worried that the candy the government offered would not be of the same quality they were able to get at Harry’s.
The government assured the people that the quality would be the same. They told everyone that those who were happy with the quality and service at Harry’s, could continue to get their candy there. The Government would not force anyone to take their candy.

BO’s Government Run Candy Shop opened on the corner of Hope Street and Change Place on June 28, 2012.

BO’s offered all the same candy that Harry’s did but with one difference; the candy at BO’s didn’t cost a single penny.
Everyone was able to just walk right into BO’s and take whatever candy they wanted, for free.

Many of Harry’s customers realized that they could get the same exact candy, free of charge, at BO’s.
If they got the Government candy, they would have more money to spend on other things they wanted.

The lines started to become a little longer at BO’s as more and more people wanted their share of the free candy.

Soon the demand for candy was exceeding the supply that BO’s had on hand.

There was another slight problem. Even though BO’s was providing candy to everyone for free, the candy manufacturers were still charging BO’s.
BO’s realized that they could save on expenses by cutting out many of the manufacturers.
BO’s Government Run Candy Shop soon began manufacturing most of it’s own candy.

Meanwhile, with less and less customers, Harry’s could no longer afford to keep the shelves stocked with the many different varieties of candy they had offered in the past. And, the candy they were able to put on the shelves was of a lesser quality. Harry’s was forced to sell cheaper candy just to stay in business. This resulted in even less customers. People were no longer coming from different countries and more and more of the locals were going to BO’s.

The lines now grew even longer at BO’s Government Run Candy Shop.
BO’s was forced to open several other locations just to handle the amount of people getting the free candy. This of course created another problem for BO’s. More locations meant more overhead and more expenses. To keep the escalating costs down, BO’s Government Run Candy Shop was forced to cut back on some of the different varieties of candy they were manufacturing.

Soon many of the private manufactures and distributors either closed down or began to manufacture only the candy now being given away at BO’s Government Run Candy Shop.

Now even if Harry wanted to sell the same candy as before, the manufacturers were no longer producing the quality candy which was once so highly sought after.

Some of the people began to complain that BO’s no longer offered their favorite candy.
BO’s assured these people that there was still several different varieties to choose from. They told the people that the quality of the candy they were providing was the same and there would now be shorter wait times.

Some of the people went back to Harry’s but found that the quality of candy there was no longer what it had been. They eventually realized that they would be paying for the same candy that BO’s was providing for free. They returned to BO’s.

BO’s expenses continued to grow and the demand for candy was never ending.

The Government hired the best analysts who conducted extensive research and studies on all the candy BO’s was providing. The analysts determined that they could save the Government even more money by using cheaper ingredients and only producing one type of candy. They decided that black licorice was the cheapest candy to produce. The people could now have all the black licorice they wanted, free of charge.

When more and more people started to complain about the bad taste the black licorice was leaving in their mouths, the government assured them that black licorice was still candy, still free for everyone and that more locations could be opened up to better serve them.
With the money saved, BO’s promised to form a research department to develop a better black licorice with no aftertaste.

Harry’s, along with hundreds of other independent candy stores had to eventually shut its doors. They could no longer afford to stay in business. This resulted in even longer lines at BO’s Government Run Candy Shop and many people now had to go without black licorice due to shortages.

Expenses continued to skyrocket for BO’s. They could no longer keep all the locations opened and there was no longer any money for the research department to develop a better tasting black licorice. BO’s no longer offered services on Saturdays. The result: longer lines and still a bad taste in the people’s mouths.

Eventually BO’s Government Run Candy Shop had to come up with a way to continue to provide the people with the black licorice.
They realized that they could no longer allow the people to come to BO’s Government Run Candy Shop whenever they wanted. People would now only be allowed to get their candy on their specific days and at their specific times.
Many people called it rationing but BO’s assured everyone that it was necessary so that everyone still got their share of the free candy that they deserved.
BO’s Government Run Candy Shop also decided to introduce a candy fee. The people called it a tax but BO’s argued that everyone was still getting the same amount and quality of candy as everyone else and the fee was still less then what they paid at Harry’s.

As more and more people demanded the black licorice, the wait between visits to the candy store became greater and greater.
The candy fee everyone had to pay kept increasing. The people were now paying more for black licorice then they had ever paid for the quality candy Harry’s once offered.

No one was happy and everyone wished for the good old days when they were able to buy their candy at Harry’s.

Everyone hoped it would one day change.

THE END

Authors notes:

Over simplified? Of course
Juvenile? Very
Sound like a children’s book. You bet.

You see, liberals and the left are like children. You must simplify things so that they understand. Yet even then, they just don’t get it.

Children believe money grows on trees and there is a never ending supply, just like liberals and the left.

Children live in the moment and do not think of the long term effects, just like liberals and the left.

Children believe everything they are told, just like liberals and the left.

Children don’t think of consequences, just like liberals and the left.

Children look to Mommy and Daddy and other adults to tell them what to do. Liberals and the left look to the government.

I chose black licorice because I hate black licorice.

For far too long, our politicians on every level; local, state and federal, have continually failed us.

Taxes continue to rise, utilities continue to rise, the health care bill, talk of taxes on sugar products such as soda and sports drinks, the list is endless.

Governmental control has grown.

Democracy has been hijacked and our voices have been silenced. Our freedom is slowly being stripped away.

Political correctness is out of control.

We accept that illegal immigrants are given the same, if not more, rights and privileges than our own citizens.

We accept the removal of signs and symbols of certain religious groups, while minority religions are given more holidays.

We accept that the rights of terrorists and enemy prisoners are more important than saving American lives.

We accept that our elected officials and those appointed by them are tax cheats, adulterers, liars, communists, etc…….

We accept a New York City mayor who has changed and ignored the law of term limits.

We accept a president and his wife who both loathe the country they serve.

We accept that the vocal minority rule the silent majority.

Don’t we deserve better? Shouldn’t we demand better?

The time has come for our voices to be heard.

EVERY POLITICO ON EVERY LEVEL MUST BE VOTED OUT.

It is time to remind these elected officials that “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their powers from the consent of the governed,-…” We must send a message that it is still “WE THE PEOPLE.”

Every incumbent must go.

Let us not wait for “…an absolute Tyranny over these states.”

A Lesson in Hypocrisy and The Socialization of The USA

with 3 comments

Does anyone hear what the President is saying?  It seems that everyone is listening.  But is anyone actually hearing what is coming out of his mouth?  His speech to congress last Tuesday was a lesson in both contradiction and hypocrisy.  

Briefly, among other things, the president acknowledges the financial mess on the banks careless lending policies and the failed mortgages. Yet he  says that to get this economy going, the banks must begin to open up credit and begin lending.   Now I ask you, are we to assume that there is no lending taking place at this time?  He says, “……credit has stopped flowing the way it should…….And when there is no lending, families can’t afford to buy homes or cars.”  So, no one is getting a mortgage at this time?  No one is financing a new car?  Interesting indeed, especially when there are those that are buying homes, securing mortgages and financing new cars. Perhaps what he means is that the banks should loosen their new stringent lending policies.  

The President went on to say that, “If your family earns less than $250,000 a year — a quarter million dollars a year — you will not see your taxes increased a single dime.” He also stated that, “By 2020, America will once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world. That’s is a goal we can meet.”  

So let me get this straight, he wants to make sure America has the highest rate of college  graduates in the world, but is going to end up penalizing them when they secure the well off, high paying jobs.  Isn’t that why we go to college?  To get high paying jobs and better ourselves.  Over $250,000 per family?  Is it that unusual for two college graduates who marry to make say $125,000 each per year? I’m sorry but higher taxes ought not be the reward for those, who through hard work and determination, have prospered.

Now these hypocrisies are bad enough, but what is truly disturbing are the blatant socialist undertones of the entire speech.   “…….we will act with the full force of the federal government to ensure that the major banks that Americans depend on have enough confidence and enough money to lend even in more difficult times….. we will hold accountable those responsible, force the necessary adjustments……… “  Act with the full force of the government?  Force the necessary adjustments? WOW.  He goes on to say, “And I intend to hold these banks fully accountable for the assistance they receive……….”  Do you see what is happening here folks?  When the government bails out the banks, lends the money, they control the banks.  Right there in black and white.   

Want to talk “Fear Mongering?”  The President says, “Because of this [stimulus] plan, there are teachers who can now keep their jobs and educate our kids. Health care professionals can continue caring for our sick. There are 57 police officers who are still on the streets of Minneapolis tonight because this plan prevented the layoffs their department was about to make.”    

So wait a second.  Without this stimulus bill, our kids will not get an education?  The sick would  go uncared for?  Police officers would be laid off?  My god. Thank you Mr. President.  Thank you for saving us.  

There was even a promise to help discover a cure for cancer.   In discussing the new  Health Care Reforms, he said, “It will launch a new effort to conquer a disease that has touched the life of nearly every American, including me, by seeking a cure for cancer in our time.”  Who would have thought?  For years now we have been told that “they” are working to find a cure for cancer. Thank God for this President.  He is finally going to help find that cure for cancer.   Can he walk on water too?

Bottom line is this, there are many things wrong with this country.  Health care does need to be reformed.  But perhaps a good place to start would be to weed out all the corruption, fraud and frivolous law suits.  How much wasted money could be saved?

And yes everyone should get the best education they could. However, it is not your right to go to college.  If you didn’t work hard enough in high school to get a scholarship or if mommy and daddy can’t pay your tuition, GET A JOB and go to night school.  You’ll appreciate it more.  

The economy is definitely in disarray. However, in a Capitalistic society, businesses do go under.  Bad choices do result in monetary losses.  Jobs do unfortunately diminish.  But when one company closes, others open. New jobs get created. New avenues of prosperity are opened up.    

These bailouts are nothing more than corporate welfare. It will lead to a Socialist government.  Bad behavior and poor choices cannot and should not be rewarded.  Unfortunately that has become the norm of the day.  Run your company into the ground.  Don’t worry, we’ll bail you out.  Want to get pregnant and have eight kids without a job and health insurance?  Don’t worry we’ll take care of that too.  

Look, we may not all be born of equal circumstances.  Some of us may have to work harder than others.  Some will succeed and some will not.  We are all capable of choosing our own destiny. 

But, as this last election taught us, it doesn’t matter if you’re black or white, Baptist, Protestant, Catholic or maybe even Muslim…..if you know the right people, make the right friends, and have a lot of money, you too can be President of the United States. 

GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
