How lost 40 percent of its millionaires from 2007 to 2009. Now we're all equally poor. The Occupiers still aren't happy though.
TAX AND SPEND:
You know how politicians always proclaim their love of democracy. That's a bunch of crap. They love being elected, but they don't want to be subject to the will of the people. Case in point:
""It is not for others to decide but the Greek people to decide the fate of this agreement," Prime Minister George Papandreou told the electorate in Athens just days after the EU thought he had agreed to push the deal through the Greek parliament. "We believe in democratic participation — we are not afraid of it. This vote will be the foundation for a new Greece."His call for a public referendum on the deal was met Tuesday with accusations of betrayal from France, shock from economists, stunned silence from Germany, markets plunged around the world and speculation was rampant that giving the people the final word could sink European banks and perhaps the EU itself."Oops. God forbid the people actually be allowed to make decisions for themselves. De Tocqueville said that democracy will survive until people decide they can use the power of government to steal all the money of the producers until everybody is destitute. This referendum in Greece represents the reality of his observation, and it will, hopefully, destroy the fantasy of democracy everywhere. Western democracy is doomed. The sooner, the better. Once that happens, let's hope people throw the crooks out all over the world and demand freedom instead. The alternative will be worse. But I'm not holding my breath. De Tocqueville is on the verge of getting the last laugh, and we're all going to pay for not heeding his warning.
Global warming fraud exposed as pseudo-science. Maybe he's been reading this blog.
Britain supposedly defunds green energy. This is the wave of the future. Our government is broke. It can't fund anything. It will stop funding these boondoggles whether we want it to or not. Thank goodness.
TSA's porno-scanners exposed by the government. Yes, I said by the government. Better late than never.
While Obama pretends he's going to pull all US troops out of Iraq as demanded by the US installed Iraqi government (he won't), he's also planning bolster the number of terrorist targets - I mean US troops - he stations in the Persian Gulf.
"The Obama administration plans to bolster the American military presence in the Persian Gulf after it withdraws the remaining troops from Iraq this year, according to officials and diplomats. That repositioning could include new combat forces inKuwait able to respond to a collapse of security in Iraq or a military confrontation with Iran."Why not create more terrorists? The government can never create enough terrorists to scare the American people.
It's always funny when a member of the most successful criminal organization in the history of the world accuses another organization, no matter how bad, of being a mafia. I agree the NCAA is terrible, but it's nowhere near as bad as the US government.
Rumors of Ron Paul running a third party campaign, perhaps as a Libertarian, are driving the Republican establishment nuts. These rumors hurt his chances to win the nomination, and that works in the establishment's favor, so I don't put any weight on them.
