I Love Mark Steyn–Obama’s False Choice

March 28, 2009

I do love Mark Steyn and his delighful ability to entertain me whilst (couldn’t resist) trudging through facts and minutia as we must to understand HRO’s double-speak, economic gobledigook and OSBS (see yesterdya’s post). He furthers his clairfication today from NRO.

Obama’s False Choice
A “chaotic and unforgiving capitalism” is exactly what we need right now.

By Mark Steyn

Writing in the Chicago Tribune last week, President Obama fell back on one of his favorite rhetorical tics: “But I also know,” he wrote, “that we need not choose between a chaotic and unforgiving capitalism and an oppressive government-run economy. That is a false choice that will not serve our people or any people.”

Really? For the moment, it’s a “false choice” mainly in the sense that he’s not offering it: “a chaotic and unforgiving capitalism” is not on the menu, which leaves “an oppressive government-run economy” as pretty much the only game in town. How oppressive is yet to be determined: To be sure, the official position remains that only “the richest five percent” will have taxes increased. But you’ll be surprised at the percentage of Americans who wind up in the richest five percent. This year federal government spending will rise to 28.5 per cent of GDP, the highest level ever, with the exception of the peak of the Second World War. The 44th president is proposing to add more to the national debt than the first 43 presidents combined, doubling it in the next six years, and tripling it within the decade. But to talk about it in percentages of this and trillions of that misses the point. It’s not about bookkeeping, it’s about government annexation of the economy, and thus of life: government supervision, government regulation, government control. No matter how small your small business is — plumbing, hairdressing, maple sugaring — the state will be burdening you with more permits, more paperwork, more bureaucracy.

And don’t plan on moving. Ahead of this week’s G20 summit in London, Timothy Geithner, America’s beloved Toxic Asset, (more…)

Obama to get help from UN to kill US Business

March 28, 2009

Not that His Royal Obamaness, our Dear Leader, needs any more help than the Demon-crat rich Congress and  Senate to pass his business killing policies, but now will have help from the ineffectual and corrupt United Nations.

FOXNews is reporting from a 16 page “note”  that will be “distributed to participants at a mammoth negotiating session that starts on March 29 in Bonn, Germany, the first of three sessions intended to hammer out the actual commitments involved in the new deal.” The new deal being the replacement for the Kyoto Accords  and “a critical step along the path to what the U.N. calls an “ambitious and effective international response to climate change,” which is intended to culminate at the later gathering in Copenhagen.

The major thrust and hope is to turn the AGWH (Anthropogenic Global Warming Hoax) into a further American Business Killer under the United World’s auspices through even more harsh regulations, and (un)intentionally moving much of the  American manufacturing industry to far less enlightened and environmentally irresponsible nations that don’t care how they pollute or how much CO2 they release into the air;  and, by the way, have low wage hungry workforces and third-world economies.

As a bonus, the regulations that are being pushed will also restrict emissions from aircraft, specifically those that travel long distances. So, the net result will be less general recreational/pleasure transcontinental and overseas air travel. I wonder how Europe (France, Germany, Italy, etc.) feels about cutting out it’s Amercias’ and Asian tourist money. I imagine that nearly half  (if not more) of all tourist spending and a large part of their economy comes from these “dollars”–especially France, which virtually has no industry to speak of except wine (man, they have a great publicity agency that can get you to visit their country and spend vast sums of money just to be insulted for doing so).

They warn reading of the “Notes” is not recommended while driving or operating heavy equipment as it will cause instantaneous coma, but is included for those that need a cure for insomnia. This will all lead up to the replacement of the Kyoto Accords that the U.S. never signed because of the threat to our  manufacturing and business industry. Obama, with his need to Socialize America, won’t think twice about signing onto any plan coming out of Copenhagen later this year that will help kill our current energy generation and power distribution industry, and push out other businesses so that the resultant increased and exploding unemployment will ensure the need and requirement for his social engineering.

U.N. ‘Climate Change’ Plan Would Likely Shift Trillions to Form New World Economy

Friday , March 27, 2009

By George Russell

A United Nations document on “climate change” that will be distributed to a major environmental conclave next week envisions a huge reordering of the world economy, likely involving trillions of dollars in wealth transfer, millions of job losses and gains, new taxes, industrial relocations, new tariffs and subsidies, and complicated payments for greenhouse gas abatement schemes and carbon taxes — all under the supervision of the world body.

Those and other results are blandly discussed in a discretely worded United Nations “information note” on potential consequences of the measures that industrialized countries will likely have to take to implement the Copenhagen Accord, the successor to the Kyoto Treaty, after it is negotiated and signed by December 2009. The Obama administration has said it supports the treaty process if, in the words of a U.S. State Department spokesman, it can come up with an “effective framework” for dealing with global warming.

I Love Jonah Goldberg–Labor’s ‘card check’ tricks

March 24, 2009

Jonah Goldberg has it right and the most concise (if there can be any) explanation for the EFCA (Employees Free Choice Act) or Card (“Youse gonna sign that for da’ union, aintcha?”) Check in his article below. As I’ve warned, this is part of the complete steamrolling of Dear Leader’s plan to kill American business and industry. You add higher profit taxes, the cap & trade/carbon tax, the requirement that all jobs generated under the spendulus bill must be paid at union wage scale and then card check to ensure we pump up the unions membership (and thereby their coffers, automatically) where can a business in the US make a profit? This doesn’t even include Queen Nancy’s 12-15 new democrat voters/union workers when she passes the Immigration Amnesty Bill. So, you think unemployment is bad now, just wait until businesses close for one or more of the reasons above, then you’ll see the real destruction of the United States.

Just remember, HRO promised to “fundamentally change the country”. Well, he is and a majority of the American people voted him in and themselves out of their jobs to get “CHANGE”.

Proposed legislation could ‘shanghai’ workers into joining unions.

At the end of the 19th century, unsuspecting workers were “shanghaied” — a practice originated in that Chinese city — to work on British ships, which desperately needed the labor. All manner of tricks were used to hoodwink the poor souls into service at sea. According to one legend, press gangs, or “crimps,” would put a coin — “the king’s shilling” — in a man’s drink. If the mark drank the ale only to see the coin at the bottom of an empty glass, it was too late and he was a member of the Royal Navy.

The proposed Employee Free Choice Act, colloquially known as “card check,” might be better named “The Democrats’ Shilling Act.” It would radically revise the National Labor Relations Act, primarily by diluting the practice of requiring workers to vote for unionization via an election with a secret ballot, and by changing the rules by which a government official can force labor rules on employers — making the choice to unionize less free. Basically, under card check, labor can unionize a company’s employeesif 50% of the workers sign a card saying they want to unionize. The cards can be signed in the presence of others, including union organizers. [emphasis mine]

Indeed, the press gangs much prefer it that way.

There is a bloody spin war over whether card check abolishes the secret ballot or not. Pro-card-check forces insist that it doesn’t. Unfortunately, these voices include many mainstream reporters who consistently use the language preferred by Big Labor. They note that if 30% of the workers sign a card asking for an election, they can have one.

But this ignores the unions’ crimp tactics. For starters, the cards are written in ways that make “predatory lending” mortgages seem like paragons of full disclosure.

At the National Right to Work website, you can find an example of one of these cards. In big, bold letters on top, it says “Request for Employees Representation Election.” But after you fill out all the relevant info, then there’s the small print, authorizing the Teamsters to “represent me in all negotiations of wages, hours and working conditions.”

In other words, in many cases, workers (more…)

The Final Nail in the Death of America’s Business and Industry

March 19, 2009

His Royal Obamaness, The ONE, the Left’s Messiah, Dear Leader has the final nail all cued-up to be driven home to kill the United States’ capatalist-based business and industry, ensuring the path to socialism in complete, not only through Union-controlled wages stipulated in the Stimulus Bill, but with upcoming EPA controlled, Tax & Trade Plan.

The Paprazzi President Obama has so increased the deficit with the Spendulus and the OmniBS Bills to the point that the only way out, within the next two years, will be to hyperinflate the economy with a tremendous flood–a tsunami, if you will–of  paper money backed by nothing. Stalin said (I’m paraphrasing) the fastest way to institute socialism was to kill an economy and make money worthless, and Chairman Obama, the Dear Leader is going to do just that, but first he must reduce the GDP and tax base with Cap & Trade to fight the Global Warming Hoax, rebranded the Climate Crisis by the Goracle, Al Gore, The Green ONE.

Between Queen Pelosi’s wanting to flood the workforce, and as a by-product so enlarge the Demon-crats voting base that Conservatism will never regain a foothold in national politics, with automatically newly-minted immigrants through Illegal Aliens Amnesty (the conversion would instantly create at least 12-15 Million Democrats) with help of ACORN’s control of the census, and HRO’s Cap & Trade Tax, unemployment will be so deep that we’ll never recover enough taxes to overcome all the new spending deficit.

The $2 Trillion Cap & Trade Tax/Program will drive America’s industrial manufacturing complex off-shore, so that those of us unemployed today from the high-tech community, especially the Semiconductor and Printed Circuit Board industries, will never see a job again and our ranks will swell with millions more. This belief that a responsible business manager or owner will suck it up and play this game to continue building a business in the states is a ludicrous crack pipe-dream. (more…)

The Death of Our Industries is Imminent

February 19, 2009

Here we go–The death of our nation’s industries is imminent–the EPA is going after Carbon Dioxide Emissions to control and end  Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW or the re-brandedClimate Change”).

E.P.A. Expected to Regulate Carbon Dioxide

 By JOHN M. BRODER

 Published: February 18, 2009

WASHINGTON — The Environmental Protection Agencyis expected to act for the first time to regulate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that scientists blame for the warming of the planet, according to top Obama administration officials.

The decision, which most likely would play out in stages over a period of months, would have a profound impact on transportation, manufacturing costs and how utilities generate power. It could accelerate the progress of energy and climate change legislation in Congress and form a basis for the United States’ negotiating position at United Nations climate talks set for December in Copenhagen.

The environmental agency is under order from the Supreme Court to make a determination whether carbon dioxide is a pollutant that endangers public health and welfare, an order that the Bush administration essentially ignored despite near-unanimous belief among agency experts that research points inexorably to such a finding.

The Green One will not be satisfied until he and his EnviroWarriors under The Goracle’s Spell have shut down our ability to manufacture our products or produce our energy. They claim the discussion and debate is over regarding Global Warming (AGW)/Climate Change regardless of the thousands (31,000) of actual earth, meteorologic, cosmic and planetary scientists have signed the Oregon Project Petition and over 650 other scientist are listed in a U.S. Minority Report that Sen. Inhofe (R-OK) produced in argument to the insanity and proof that the “debate” isn’t over and the “consensus” is not agreed.

Folks we are in for it and very soon–the Spendulus will NOT be of any consequence when they shut down the industry of the United States as a result the Global Warming Scam. What they started with in the Spendulus Bill, they will complete with the EPA’s rampage–the complete destruction of our economic base and energy structure–will it matter that we’re building roads if there is no fuel OR products to move on them?
