Does a higher minimum wage mean we might get the Waltons off of walfare?

You might be a socialist if…

January 3, 2013 on 2:16 pm | In Economics, Oh Yeah, Poly Tics | No Comments

Here is a list to hopefully make you think about what is really being said:

If you think that workers deserve a living wage you might be a socialist.

If you think that the government should build bridges you might be a socialist.

If you think that there should be FIDC Insurance you might be a socialist.

If you think that the USA should spend more on defense then the next 13 competitors combined you might be a socialist.

If you think that there should be laws against drunk driving you might be a socialist.

If you think that the government should support the American agricultural community you might be a socialist.

If you think that you should have roads to drive on that you did not personally pay for you might be a socialist.

If you think that the government should have hospital districts in rural areas you might be  a socialist.

If you think that cities should have taxpayer paid for fire departments you might be a socialist.

If you think that cities should have taxpayer paid for police departments you might be a socialist.

If you think that taxpayers should support airports you might be a socialist.

If you think that people should be taxed for football, baseball and basketball stadiums you might be a socialist.

Or perhaps not?

The Republicans, the Tea Party and Socialism

March 25, 2010 on 4:16 pm | In Economics, Oh Yeah, Poly Tics | 2 Comments

Once again I am confused by the Tea Party and Republicans.

They claim that the Health Care Law is socialism and should not have been passed, yet they say they want the US Government to control medical costs.

If the first is socialism isn’t the second also socialism?

Truly Confused,

It has been said that money is the root of all evil…I don’t know, I have never had enough money to know if it is evil or not.

Wealth Care not Health Care

September 29, 2009 on 5:39 pm | In Economics, Oh Yeah, Poly Tics, Religion, The Body and Things | No Comments

Don’t like the idea of government sticking its nose into your health? There is a group out there that agrees with you! And they are hopping mad! They like you firmly believe that if people don’t have and can’t afford health care, it is their fault and that God hates them.

Like you one of the things they believe is that if you can’t afford to go to the doctor, that it should not be a problem as bandages and ibuprofen are cheap. So what is the issue?

As to death panels by the government their belief is that their companies decide that issue well enough on their own and the government should not get in the way of death panels for profit.

As to rationing health care they firmly believe it is their job to do that.

And like the right, they believe that socialism must be stopped and so they propose that we stop Medicare and even VA benefits.

And of course they believe that nothing says freedom like denying claims for health care.

I would say that if their belief’s can be summed up in just a few words, it would be this:

If We ain’t broke don’t fix it!

Do these folks sound like you kind of folk? If so join them. Their web url is:

Whatever Happened to America?

April 10, 2009 on 7:47 pm | In Economics, Oh Yeah, Poly Tics, Relationships, The World | 1 Comment

This Is The Enemy

I received a email with a lot of old WWII posters in it. They were pretty cool from an historical point of view.

 

Here is the original letter with it:

 

 I wonder whatever happened to this kind of thinking?

I got a lump in my throat when I read this. I “grew up” 

thinking patriotism, it is the AMERICAN way! I am glad

to see that somebody saved them.

 

Then followed a bunch of pictures.

 

Then this:

 

These were our parents. What in God’s name have we let happen?

 


  

 

I guess we are the last generation to see, or even remember anything like these? Whatever happened?  Political correctness (or “re-education”) happened, lack of God’s name happened, lack of personal responsibility happened, lack of personal integrity and honesty happened, lack of respect and loyalty to our country happened, lack of being an American happened.

 

 

What follows is my answer to the letter:

 

I guess we are the last generation to see, or even remember anything like these?

 

Wow how old are you? Like 77?

 

Most Americans are 2 to 4 generations from these posters. The oldest baby boomer is really not old enough to remember this as they would have been born some time between 1944 and 1948 with the last boomers being born in 1960 to 1964 (depending on who you want to believe.

 

Whatever happened? 

 

Time happened!

 

 Political correctness (or “re-education”) happened, lack of God’s name happened, lack of personal responsibility happened, lack of personal integrity and honesty happened, lack of respect and loyalty to our country happened, lack of being an American happened.
 

What happened? Yeah, “re-education” happened. We forgot about the Nuremberg Trials. We forgot that freedom extends to even these that disagree with us! Think the McCarthy Hearings. The fact that we are suppose to care about the poor. That money was to be gotten morally.

 

How can we have respect and loyalty for a country that fails to follow what they have said was good. When that, which they in international courts said was right is not followed by them.

 

Yeah, personal integrity and honesty was shown to be wrong!

 

These of the older the baby boomers that I as one of the youngest baby boomers have  followed into the brave new future have taught me that it is not good to be honest and poor. That instead of being poor, it is better to be rich or at least well off and dishonest.

 

They have taught me that I should sell drugs and trash music and movies to the young people in order to snare their minds so that I may sell even more trash to them in order to become even wealthier. And that is the just and honest thing to do. We call it capitalism at its best!

 

They have taught me that it is right to lie to get what I want.

 

That it is alright to go to war to get what I want. And that in order to get and have a society of young people ready to go to war that I need to sell them violent death affirming video games and music and movies to prepare their mind to kill animals (anything not us) and what’s really cool I can get richer doing it!

 

By teaching me these things, the older boomers have taught me that “personal integrity and honesty” are whatever will make me richer and make me more liked by rich people like me.

 

If you really want to blame someone look in the mirror and ask yourself what is true? What do I believe? How do I act on what I believe? Are the two in agreement?

 

 

What do you believe?

Capitalism VS the Government?

April 1, 2009 on 8:03 pm | In Economics, Oh Yeah, Poly Tics, Relationships, Religion, Zany Thoughts | No Comments

 

Capitalism vs. the Government

 

I believe in Capitalism when I think I can get ahead of the other guy.

 

I believe in Government controls when I think the other guy might get unfairly ahead of me.

 

Can I have it both ways and still be a Capitalist?

 

OH
