If you are not with us …you are against us? Where did I last hear this?

I believe this is what came from President Bush as he led the charge to stand against Iraqi dictator Sadman Hussein in the wake of the Iraqi dictator’s post Quwati invasion’s peace.

Hmm! Noble cause as the president’s charge may have been; as it were, I wonder why the president’s efforts met with so much international indifference and contempt.

For a possible answer, take a look back with me a bit.

In view of the recent celebration of The Bay of Pigs 50th Anniversary last week, I think it altogether fitting to also take a look back at a letter which I wrote around the first part of 2007 …especially since it is also the case that Barack Obama made the decision to essentially dump the Libyan mess into NATO’s lap.

Consider the following as a prefacing introduction prior to any such a look back ward …

Hey Barack! Hey NATO!

I would hope America is ready and willing to take the responsibilities needed to shoulder the burdens of the tasks in Northern Africa. If something is worth doing, it should be worth doing well, yes?

Yet, for all that …the leadership which caused Barack Obama to mount the charge into Libya is one which is also fast wilting and withering on the vine.

This does one thing well. It makes a fine example of an excuse for failing to show the conviction of such a charge’s initial courage and conviction.

To Teachers Tenured-Non-Performing; “You’re Fired!”

This is shorter than it is sweet, yet it should be just as easy to serve to connect the dots …as it is easy to see how higher priced commodities (…namely escalating oil and gasoline prices) represent a significant quasi tax-like burden. So, in the same light, what I am about to discuss should be equally easy to see how such (like rising oil and gas prices) also poses a significant threat to drag down a healthy economic recovery …all the more …along with the detrimental affects which are associated with a rise in commodity prices.

So, in like fashion, what I am discussing today, will only serve to highlight the exasperating affects of the above commodity-driven affects’ drag on the economy and …moreover …do so in an additive fashion …rather much like explaining and warning of a more real, clear and present danger’s approach.

Taken together these two real threats pose a significant real punitive tax which is now …as it has been …currently working to threaten recovery …pretty much undetected and unchecked …right under our very noses.

And whether or not these threats are taken separately or aggregately …both, when taken together …will combine to form and work together …as a single matter’s impact …forming a double taxation whose hikes, which …when combined will essentially threaten to erode and reduce expendable discretionary personal income …hampering a badly needed healthy economic recovery.

I do not mean to be pessimistic, but the cards have already been stacked against those who have pretty much have chosen to ignore the facts at the …city, county and state-wide levels of government …that is of course …until recently …as can be evidenced by the forces aligning themselves for the real clash in 2012.

Yet, in spite of what appears to be two eight hundred pound gorillas in the room, Americans have been unwilling to take up the conversation at, in and upon the stages of more locally oriented state-wide levels …and; as such, sadly …a less prudent reason has more than all but avoided a more sobering conversation whose time is long over due.

No Child Left …or Right; Get Behind Me!

The three year anniversary marking the release and launch of Obama campaign slogan rhetoric; “Yes We Can!” is quickly approaching and one thing America has realized is…

No We Can’t!!!

Ax the Home Mortgage Interest Deduction?

Stimulation vs. Depression

One moment it’s stimulate; the next it’s depress.

So what’s next; more uncertainty?

That would be good for housing and employment now, wouldn’t it?

CNBC; you can’t seem to make a consistent supportive call toward private sector solution in many of your segments …”The Call” not withstanding ….at least not in one viable practical solution which validly is capable to consider that which promotes the rights of the individual over and above the needs of the state …our Beggar and Beggar-like …Big Brother.

Which came first; the individual or Big Brother?

Read the constitution if you can’t answer this without hesitation.

I don’t know; but, the last time I checked …the government was ordained and establish to serve the needs of the individual …and not vice versa.

I know! I’ve lived in a few countries where the worker served the state …mostly without a single shred of private incentive.

CNBC, since when did the servant become the lord here?

Make no mistake about it; I do not work or live to serve you either!

Likewise, in your discussion of: Tax Incentives & Reward vs. Tax Penalties …I have to ask; …where is the slightest mention of the private incentives’ side of you conversation gone hidden?

Me rather thinks that you have deliberately, blindly …or otherwise stuffed this more meaningful other side of the discussion into a little black box and carefully placed it in the back of a dimly lit room?


Make no mistake …the answer which serves the private sector a better solution …most certainly does not lie in the public solution.

But in as far as …so much potential as the private side of the equation has …why have the other (still bigger government and its needs) so swamped out the interests of “…We the People …?”

Why then has this lop-sided conversation’s considerations continued unchecked along such detrimental lines?

So, rather than continue to be blind-sided; I must ask ….

So, who’s on your side? Who’s got your back? Whose interests are being served here in this lop-sided discussion?

What’s to loose?

The rights of the individual …or the needs of a failed ,,,self-serving government hell-bent on establishing and moving forward a socially engineered new liberal order?


To America, in regard to Her …The Deficit Commission …I say;

Beware, do not become the administration’s next …

New Whipping Boys …the next one gone up …given upon the Chopping Block …much without so much a consideration of what actually works to move freedom forward efficiently …alas; the demise and power of private enterprise …up in smoke.

For an example of the impact of taxation; see the causes of “The Great Depression.”
