Sugar plumbs terrorists, strawberries, and $59 per gallon green jet fuel.

I thought that “the sequester” was going to end the economy as we all know it? When the White House ended the tours, it was just proof positive of that fact. Then there were stories of hungry people, some 700,000 that would not be getting their SNAP benefits. That’s right again, do to the sequester? I suppose record numbers of people on the government dole isn’t something to take notice of until you have a little thing called the “SEQUESTER”?

Despite the sequester, a designed plan brought to everyone by the president and his democratic steeple. The manipulative presentations of the sequester is never a talking point about slowing the rate of spending? But a magnification of impending doom? A presentation of a biblical disaster to all humanity? Because the idea was hatched in the minds of men, and is presented as a disastrous calamity that will negatively affect human life, will it also qualify as a work place disaster or an economical terrorist attack? Lets not go to extremes. The sequester is not a reduction! It is a slowing of the rate of government’s spending growth. Even so, if the sequester was a reduction in government spending, what they are telling us is that they can’t find 3% worth of waste in the budget? Not even to avoid impending doom?

Come on people, look harder! What did the president say…”You in government were sent to Washington to make the difficult choices!”

How long will the people allow these sleeper cells of economical terror to exist in government, who have the intent of setting off avalanches of wasteful fantasies wrapped in one crises to the next, only solved by increasing taxes?

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel recently warned that sequestration would cause “suspension of important activities, curtailed training, and could result in furloughs of civilian personnel” but the spending cuts haven’t killed the green fuels program, as the Pentagon has continued purchasing renewable fuel at $59 per gallon.

Well the sequester didn’t kill the green energy industry? We already had a 90 billion dollar waste on green energy that could have kept the white house tours going indefinitely. Honestly green jet fuels, at a cost of $59 per gallon, is reasonable, and economical? If we could squeeze $58 per gallon jet fuel out of aborted babies would that be a good policy to pursue? Why is $59 per gallon jet fuel reasonable, no matter how it is made? How is that worth a way word thought in the minds of idiots, net alone, have a snowball’s chance in hell getting past the mighty, all-powerful, evil sequester that will starve a nation? That policy produced by evil politician to cause starvation of 700,000 people (presumed to be kids none the less) some how this is a bargain in choosing $59 jet fuel, in weighing out the consequences between the lesser of two evils?

Do you thing the negotiations when like this…we have 700,000 people we could feed, or we can buy this crazy good green energy jet fuel? Because green energy is the future–what will the vote be and who is going to break the bad news to the people of America?

I know it is an over simplification of negotiations devoid of common sense! But some times it takes recklessness in pointing out the retarded mind numb in government!

With all of the injustice caused by the sequester, how did the green energy policies escape the grim reaper of modern economy’s? Please explain to me… when our existence was transformed to the realities of the “Mad Max” movie, to justify the extreme costs of green energy? Because certainly, even in the Mad Max movie–a world that ran out of oil, would have thought of $59 per gallon as too high a price to pay for fuel?

Shouldn’t government be spending money on inventing the “Back to the future Delorean   car”, at least that ran on garbage, and think of it as just as green energy worthy in saving the planet. If you don think so, you need to spend some more time at a land fill. Just saying the Delorean is better then the Mad Max world.

But then using this movie example, look to what kind of life we all have to look forward to in the future, if green energy sponsored by the retarded idiots of government has their way? If this is the cost of green energy today, what will the cost of a ripe red strawberry be in February? Because we know they’re out of growing season and flown in from some distant land on a jet today?

It seems government choices are never in favor of doing something good for 100% of the people 100% of the time? That would require too much common sense, something that was outlawed several sequesters ago.

Ass, Gas, or Grass, nobody rides alternative energy for free!

Ass, Gas, or Grass, nobody rides for free.

Yet Obama and the dim wits of the Democratic Party support this kind of social abuse of the population with their branded social engineering. Wind power or solar power isn’t cheaper or even competitive with the old fashion oil & gas. These fools of modern failure (Mr. Obama and crew) are actively in support of something that is more expensive, inconsistent, and responsible for slowing the growth of the economy. That’s not also saying that it isn’t also a total waste of taxpayer’s money and efforts in earning that money, it hasn’t had an effect on the economy and the creation of new jobs…. thus new taxpayer’s. In short, an alternative energy plan reduces the standards of living for all, including the tax revenues to the government having borrowed the money in the first place, that now has become a great big liability. Nothing but a lose, lose, lose kind of plan to becoming a loser! That’s why BP is getting out of the wind energy business. The easy money made by fleecing the American taxpayer and now it is time to go.

It looks like the oil company BP, known for its slogan “beyond petroleum,” is going back to petroleum and selling off its wind business.

“What a shocker? BP recognizes that investments                         in wind energy are increasingly unwise,” Thomas Pyle, president of the American Energy Alliance, told The Daily Caller News Foundation in an email. “Without huge government subsidies and strict mandates, wind energy cannot survive.”

What are friends for in this parallel life’s journey within this social asylum. A kick in the…

After all what are friends for? A kick in the…? At lest they should posses and present honesty their advice. We shouldn’t expect anything else from them? A true friend would be using, brutal honesty and the power of a friends observations, to help a friend in trouble that they also love. We therefore should expect nothing but honest comments, observations, criticisms, advice, as they guide, support, and commiserate with us in our travels along our parallel life’s journey within this social asylum.

If we take a deep breath, and really listen to what is being said, and quietly taking some time to think… really think about what is being said, instead of angrily reacting emotionally. We may gain some wisdom.

A friend of a friend wrote some profound words, as their observations to what might as well be a doctors prognosis, a temperature reading of a sick social asylum, and the final analyses to what disease we are fighting. With all sicknesses or diseases, the medicine are usually bitter to taste. Prehaps this brave soul, this social MD’s words will help to bring about at the very least a recognition of the condition, as well the stage of the disease, and a willingness to take the bitter pill, over that of just excepting our demise? Surviving any sickness, or disease, requires a willingness to fight it!

At what point is a freedom fighter a social terrorist, an obstructionist, an infectious organism, to the progressive liberal mindset that sits in opposition to the concept of what America was founded upon? What happened to those same concepts of life liberty and the pursuits of happiness, or of individual freedom, and the responsibility’s that go along with it?  Why is it, in supporting these things we have been viewed politically as “Obstructionists” when we indeed are nothing but “Conversationist / Freedom Fighters” who would like to preserve America as founded? When did these values lose their luster, or social value, while getting replaced with socialism’s false guarantees? Socialism is birthing the utopia of the mesmerized, envious lazy minded individuals, through its religion of unrealistic pursuits, of equal out comes, and average existences, and misery for all. A managed decay is its only contributions to the world at its very best?

Why have we failed to recognize the failed policies of socialism as our politicians present them to us? When has socialistic utopias the world over ever supported themself’s? They have all needed to be rescued or bailed-out, by free market capitalism in order to continue to exist. For those who believe in the concepts of evolution ( where everything must adapt, and only the strongest will survive) why do we as a people support political failures, or the weakest of political parasitic organisms, where misery is their greatest contribution to their populations and to the world? Why then would we who live in the shadows of such great failures, and misery’s, volunteer to do the same, without much as giving any opposition to it?

There has been no greater waste of resources of human efforts, and charity. Then those misguided contributions, given as emotional gift of charity; in the hopes of helping people while supporting political leaders and their policies that have done nothing but take from the population. Destroying human dignity, human potential, the ability in improving themself’s, or talents, or even their lot in life.

Thanks Mark for passing along this friend of your statements.

The saddest, albeit possibly most accurate short message you will read that was  written by a USMC Vet. ( I can’t argue with any of it.  Passing it along as it was received. )
He wrote: The American Dream ended (on November 6th) in Ohio. The second term of Barack Obama will be the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled… and developed the greatest Republic in the history of mankind. A coalition of Blacks, Latinos, Feminists, Gays, Government Workers, Union Members,  Environmental Extremists, The Media, Hollywood, uninformed young people, the “forever needy,” the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other “fellow travelers” have ended Norman Rockwell’s America. The Cocker Spaniel is off the front porch…the Pit Bull is in the back yard. The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and Chicago shyster, David Axelrod, along with international Socialist George Soros will be pulling the strings on their beige puppet to bring us Act 2 of the New World Order. Our side ran two candidates who couldn’t even win their own home states, and the circus fattster Chris Christie helped Obama over the top with a glowing “post Sandy” tribute that elevated the “Commander-in-Chief” to Mother Teresa status. People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will never again comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired. You will never again out vote these people. It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away. It will take Zealots, not moderates–not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status. Those who come after us will have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to “white guilt” and political correctness….. I’m done.

Greener lawns, re-adjusting the greed factor.

When is a decision made for what is in your, or your family best interest, then is publicly perceived as being greedy? Don’t we all make decisions in life with our personal best interest in mind? Where are the best price for bread, clothes, our homes and schools for our kids, what represents the best values in entertainments or even vacations? All of these decisions and others made in order to stretch the all mighty dollar in our budgets. After all, we aren’t all fat cats, millionaires or even billionaires who make some $250,000.00 per year, as defined by the government. So stretching the dollar is a must if we are to save, and invest our way into that group.

But when we become wealthy, or plain God gifted by some….. I don’t know… Talent to play a sport, and receive unreal amounts of payola, should we be looking to stretch the mighty dollar? Or should society force you into a passion by pier-pressure, to spend the money you have or make without ever deciding where the value is for yourself?

Fed up with the spike in federal and state tax hikes, Phil Mickelson hinted at “drastic changes” that would possibly involve moving his family out of his native California or toward some form of semi-retirement.

Phil Mickelson, according to Sports Illustrated, makes over $60M in 2012 and is  the country’s second highest-paid athlete.

Read more:

It is because of California’s progressive stance on taxing and spending uncontrolled that is. That’s why they are looking at this statement by Phil Mickelson, which is considered to be a very rich resident, or at least greedy. How dare he look to save money by not paying his fair share? Isn’t he just looking to personally take from the Californian community and economy all for himself?

Later in the week Phil Mickelson said.

“I’m not going to jump the gun, but there are going to be some (changes),” he said Sunday. “There are going to be some drastic changes for me because I happen to be in that zone that has been targeted both federally and by the state and . . . it doesn’t work for me right now.”

Isn’t that what it is all about? Government sets some rules and regulations on how to play this game of life within a social community. All the while leaving you with personal choices on the how’s, and where’s, you decide to live, or what degree your life style will be. Phil recognizes the changes in the political atmosphere, and the tax revenues required to run this attitude by governments both state and federal. He has become a target just because of his unusual high income based on his talent to play golf, and his attitude of trying to save money by not wanting to pay so high taxes. So why shouldn’t he be able to save himself some money, by deciding what product to use or buy?

Moving from state to state is just that! Indeed, a decision of style of government and the way states govern compared state to state, and what fits best for Phil, or every citizen for that matter. In the field of competition that Phil is well aware, because he competes professionally in golf.  He knows that the best products, or atmosphere, should receive the business, or the title of being the best, the champion. So why is making a statement that the tax environment isn’t working anymore for his family, a greedy stance requiring an apology? Isn’t it more an observation of what states have done to their market place, and done so with somewhat an irresponsible governance of state resources?

Phil’s apology as offered was like this….

On Monday, telling FoxNews in a statement, “Finances and taxes are a personal matter and I should not have made my opinions on them public.”

“I certainly don’t have a definitive plan at this time, but like everyone else I want to make decisions that are best for my future and my family,” Mickelson added.

Why would Phil feel, he had to offer an apology? Isn’t his words exactly what everyone is doing for themselves, trying to figure out the least amount of taxes needed to be paid. How is that not doing what is best for everyone? Did he receive some kind of threats from the state government putting him on the targeted list of making your life a miserable hell if you speak ill of the state’s situation? Or was this just a ploy by Phil to remove attention from his personal decisions, while preserving his future income from endorsements, even should he leave at some point. Either way, it seem that Phil found it necessary to offer an apology to remove a target and the public negative image of his statement that could also lead to some financial impact to his family.

But really, have we just become a society where speaking the truth needs to be apologized for?

Perhaps that’s why other high-profile mega rich people tend to give huge amounts of money to charity in a publicly announced way. Purchasing the best public insurance against negative public opinion’s, over how they chose to live life, or over what they choose to do in life for themselves. Because every decision by the rich, is considered extravagant, and therefore greedy.

So why isn’t trying to stretch your money in no different of ways, the same actions of the average citizen just as greedy? Could it be in the sure numbers of perceived income compared to your own? Is this the new definition of greed applied through changing standards? Is the public just becoming upset with the rich because of the ability of more choices in life do to their wealth? Or is it that rich people have more of everything and therefore need to share with the average person’s in order to lift all standards, or suffer being targeted as the “GREEDY RICH”!

It seem the greed exists, in looking over the fence and seeing that your neighbor has a greener lawn, and then demanding of him to apply fertilizer to your lawn….. Just because!

Greed has also changes the standards of being rich as well. Society considers being rich today, isn’t your fathers rich of being a millionaire any more, but simply having more money than I do, frequently adjusted downward in the name of being fairly compared, and maintaining “Greener lawns, and re-adjusting the greed factor“.

Crying over spilled milk.

Welcome to 2013, happy new year!!

Have you heard yet that if the government doesn’t pass the Farm bill that was set to expire on 9-30-2012 we could have five to six-dollar per gallon milk prices next year? It would mean that the government would have to use federal price supports which would revert back to the 1949 prices of certain commodities. Milk being one of such commodities. Why?

For an overly simplistic way to put it… portions of the farm-bill is nothing but an insurance to farmers in being able to have stable prices to their commodities, in case of loss due to natural disasters and drought, as well as in lower price periods of times.

But then some would ask if the federal government should be involved in market manipulations. Every time the government gets involved in the free markets for whatever reasons the markets act in an unnatural way. I’m sure you have heard of the boom to bust economic cycles? These occur when markets are manipulated no matter who induces the manipulations government or privet forces involved in the markets.

Providing stable prices is one thing, but manipulating the markets in going back in time, when the work on the farms were less automated and therefore more labor intensive is plan crazy. automatons of all businesses have also brought lower pricing to the consumers of such products. When accounting for the state of the modern farm and its present automated form of farming and the impact on markets. Shouldn’t we also be considering food stamps, price floors, and subsidized insurance, isn’t there something for everyone. Instead of complaining that the line of Americans waiting for a hand out from the government grows ever longer, why don’t we acknowledge the role that government plays in controlling markets? What once were free-markets, is now controlled and subsidized, and manipulated with policies designed to creating fantasy market prices and false supply and demand. Once we get past that concept, we can find ways to make government more efficient. Rather then accepting a government manipulated free market systems that relies on government spending as one of its largest portions of the economy as a whole.

Of course, there is no ability to make necessary changes and find real solutions when the children are simply yelling back and forth and having temper tantrums without finding any real solutions; giving the impression of just working hard enough to look like they’re doing their jobs instead of failing to do their jobs. Second, if government can set subsidized pricing to the 1949 levels, then we could rewrite the farm-bill to account for the modernization to the way we farm and reflect new and fair price levels for the purposes of setting up insurances designed for the fair price and the production of a stable food supply.

The current price supports are as follows below:

federal price supports. Those prices, the rates at which the government pays for certain commodities, would revert back to 1949 levels. For the most part, those were much higher, especially in areas like wheat ($13.58 per bushel in 1949, more like $6 today) and dairy products ($38.63 per hundredweight in 1949, closer to $10 today). The government would pay much more for those commodities, though not all of them; federal price supports for things like soybeans didn’t exist in 1949. This will absolutely drive up the price that businesses will have to pay for the same commodities, and that will factor into your monthly food bill.

Via @nprnews: So What Happens If The Farm Bill Expires? Not Much, Right Away

The 2008 farm bill, which provides funding for a variety of nutrition programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly food stamps), as well as payments to farmers and agricultural programs, will technically expire Sept. 30.

So what does it mean if Congress just leaves it on the table? In theory, some fairly scary things. For example, in the absence of either a new bill or an extension of the 2008 law, federal price supports revert to their 1949 levels.

Some farmers would be big winners — the government would pay huge bonuses for wheat, for example — while some farmers would get nothing at all. That’s because some commodities, including soybeans, were added to the list of those supported by government after 1949.

“At that point, we’ll have $38 milk,” Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn., told a rally at the Capitol last week. “So what do you dairy farmers think about that?” (That $38 refers to the price per 100 pound weight — the wholesale pricing unit. Basically, it works out to nearly four times what dairy farmers are guaranteed now.)

What it comes down to is the price and the markets are being manipulated by a pricing structure that is out dated and out of touch with present day conditions of government interventions. Pricing disasters for the consumer at the grocery store level has all been baked into the equation. Milk could go to that five to six-dollar range; this will affect everything made with milk or milk products as an additive in it.

Remember this crisis is nothing but a government created one by market manipulation and therefore the government is manipulating you the consumer with price of a commodity as well as through the traditional taxation of your income. But that sort of thing always happens when the citizenry cries over spilled milk and expects government to ease the pain. Somehow we misunderstand that government makes the rules, yet when it comes to these disasters or modern crisis’s, it was something beyond their control, or beyond their abilities to see past their bad policy’s. Unintended consequences seem to just happen like an occasional eruption of a volcano, instead of recognizing the problem with those Politian’s who make bad policies without the abilities of critical thinking, asking what could happen if we do this?

Yet somehow the public for the most part falls for the lies, false perceptions, that all Politian’s give out like candy at Halloween. Their job is to manipulate people while give them the perception of being free.

It is truly amazing how much freedom we are willing to give up for the fantasy that the government can control all of the uncertainty in an uncertain world. If you think this is reasonable then why do we have cloudy and rainy days? Couldn’t, or shouldn’t the government just use its controlling powers to give out sunshine to everyone through equal redistribution of the weather? sounds unreasonable? But then we expect the government to guarantee price stability of products that rely heavily on the weather in coming to market. Net alone the money government spends to pay farmers not to grow crops in order to boost price or maintain prices at current levels. Where is true market controls of free-market supply and demand economic laws in play un molested?

Got milk?

A new revival of ” Earth Day ” with India’s power outages ?

India’s power outages of the last few days should be somewhat inspiring. With the myth of global warming fresh in the minds of the small-minded. Shouldn’t this be a call to celebrating and cheering the outages. With 650 million people without electrical power, 1/10th of humanity, we shouldn’t be so shocked. Nor should we be asking ourself’s ” Could this happen in this country?” After all we have the power of the president, or some would say, the all powerful president Obama. Along with his counter part Elizabeth Warren, whose claim to fame of late, is the somewhat famous words.. ” You didn’t build that!

Warren: quote,

There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody.

You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear: you moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did.

Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea? God bless. Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.

end quote.

Roads and bridges are the ticket to success they claim. Yet each road in front of two different business, one that is successful and the other that fails. Must then claim the same amount of influence of two different outcomes created by the road. Not to the dishonest.

Warrens’s answer to everything is for government to throw even more tax stimulus to the ever-changing winds of government waste. Spend even more money on infrastructure is the call. More roads and bridges will certainly lead the country down the economic roadway to success? The Broken Sidewalk Parable via @sharethis

The 2009 stimulus plan of the United Stats, turned out that spending 800 billion dollars isn’t the answer to our problems. Proving nothing more than stimulus for the sake of spending stimulus is a runaway bullet train of wasted tax payers money. With stimulus going to rebuilding sidewalks, just to name one of the many wasted projects. It is getting harder and harder to find new wasteful things to do with your tax moneys….. or is it?  Stimulus Waste –

But God forbid if anyone wants to build a power plant. Warren looks to communist China, and the burgeoning mad growth of India as two economy’s that should only be the plan for the United States future success. If we would only follow it.

Apparently the extreme differences of the rich and the over whelming poor within these two country’s doesn’t even make a list of noticeable notes worth mentioning, or even pointing out. Yet we should follow their economic growth model? Should we take notice at least of the Chinese ghost towns, Bullet trains that are for the most part empty?  Or an occasional mention of the run away quest for electrical power, by building coal plants at a pace of about 1 per week? All of these things China is spending large amounts of stimulus moneys. Should we follow them. How is following all that being a world leader as a country? Oh Yea! Besides these two country’s are building coal power plants, we can’t! These are wrong! Leading to global warming ( wink, wink ) aren’t they? With so much of all of humanity’s population within these two country’s, along with an whelming amount of poor people looking to improve their lives. Becoming middle class if not rich someday? They need to produce electrical power! Global warming be damned!

China’s Ghost Towns: The Empty Promises of Inflated Growth via @FastCoExist . Chinese bullet trains: Is Beijing investing way too much in infrastructure?

Elizabeth Warren, and Obama, along with the extremists of the liberal left. Would only love to kill the coal power industry. As they have said before. Well. At least Obama has said that before. If they had any honesty within themself’s, or their policy’s that they push. They would point out, that their fantasy’s don’t work for us in the United States. In fact our economy needs China’s and India’s poor to become middle class to sell them stuff for our growth economically. The fantasy of taxing the people of the United States for global warming, while praising and supporting China, and India’s quest for more power, as inspiring global growth. Has about as much intellectual value of the brain-dead!

Without the same global importance, of those country’s joining to the mix, doing their part along with everyone else in trying to change that what is unchangeable within global warming. Is the leftist folly. These policy’s only are going to accomplish spreading equal misery globally. By equalization of the third-world’s economy’s, along with redistribution of the west’s wealth, as the leftist failed utopia of permanent no growth.

These out spoken government merchants of failure, when they get onto their soap boxes pointing out within their speeches. That we in the United States should, ” Follow China with renewed infrastructure expenditures “. As the way of achieving future success. We the people should then point out by pointing towards those power outages in India. Reversing the political gymnastics being played out. By asking them to explain. Why is this a bad thing for the world? Shouldn’t we be asking people to join in with celebrations of turning off the power for 1 hour, or 1 day. To save the earth from global warming? We should be celebrating these outages. Limiting pollution from coal! For this is doing the job just as well, as the worlds country’s joining in volunteering to go along with do the same things. Isn’t it? Doing their part in partnership with Earth Day in saving the world? Turning off the coal power for a while.

The crazed attitudes of the left don’t even see the extreme differences between the United States and these two country’s as being one of ( Rich and Poor ). They present their resentments along with personal envy of the rich. As what is needed to change the discrepancy’s between the two. On a global view they never admit to this same attitudes. The global equalization of economic powers, that is needed to achieve any justification for an equalization of equal concern of global warming, by all country’s. Is to drive the United States living standards into the ground, with over regulation and taxation. In the end the liberals are the same as the communists, socialists, and extremists. They don’t care about anything other than maintaining power over everyone, while separating themself’s to a better living standard.

I guess using the same prism for making evaluations of ones own standard of living, or having to give-up ones standards. While the government pushes, accepting the farce of man-made global warming. We should stand United! Reminding the liberals about global warming, ” YOU DIDN’T BUILD THAT!

1) Side note worth noting…. Connection to the power grid remains a luxury for many in India. One-third of India’s house holds do not even have electric power to light a light bulb in their homes. According to last years census.

How do you equalize this kind of economy with our’s in the United States, while fighting the global warming myth. Do you deny India, China, and others a living standard like ours? Or do you lower the standards of the USA, for a more equal distribution of the earths managed decay? Earth Day would have us all follow India’s lead in turning off the lights, in going back to the future.
