It is interesting to see the Obamamen trying to walk-back the president’s attacks on small business and the American work ethic. It’s like Obama got caught attacking old fashioned paperboys saying–e.g.:
Hey, those teenage paperboys didn’t handle their paper routes alone–they had a lot of help. The paperboys didn’t make their bicycles or write the articles or print the papers they delivered or build the streets they rode their bikes on. Paperboys were just like all the other kids–no difference whatsoever—except that, all of the other kids were still in bed sleeping while the paperboys were folding papers seven days a week and tossing big Sunday editions at 4am and collecting door to door for the papers they had bought and delivered the previous month.
Compare the initiative, personal responsibility and work ethic based on value received for value provided that is embodied in example of the paperboy versus government. The government is doing nothing more than running a numbers racket. An employer must pay a tax to the government for the privilege of even hiring an employee. Then, employees must pay taxes on all of the wages they receive. And, employers are required to deduct the taxes from employee’s wages before employees even receive their first payroll check. Many people do not realize that the country already has a flat tax: the self-employment tax rate is 15.3% and that is before fedaral and state income taxes.
July 2012’s Friday the 13th Freudian slip from the country’s Manchurian Candidate in Chief is a simple acknowledgement by Obama that he had a lot of help getting elected. As we see from California’s example, even as the state was fast falling into bankruptcy from Leftist stonkernomics, when the liberal mainstream media and the union employees of the government-education machine smell socialism, they can get a ham sandwich elected.
The Medium is the Message: the Left is no longer interested in economic wellbeing or human welfare. The liberal Utopia of the Leftist has become pessimism of all humanity. That’s the beauty of being so right: the Left is now carefree of the human condition. Perhaps there will be a paper someday explaining how it all has come to this—i.e., that the Left abandoned science and in their distrust of humanity sought to destroy it.
As I see it the primary utility of fear of global warming and fear that a disruption of climate is being caused by human activities has been as a tool to subvert individual freedom. Down deep the Leftist ideology has never been about reform. The Left’s view of the world is really pretty simple: a free man cannot be trusted.
So, what about that paper on why the Left now hates humanity? As I see it, as America prospered Leftists became more hysterical about imagined problems and less concerned about real problems. And now, the only thing that the Left is successful at accomplishing is preventing the productive from providing value to society. Good job!
The Left seems totally invested in doing whatever it can to prevent prosperity in America even if it means destroying capitalism and abandoning any desire to uplift humanity anywhere.
In a nutshell we have indulged the practice of a nutcase ideology in the public-funded schools for so long that we now have a secular, socialist fraternity of anti-American captains of society who are steering the ship Moby Nihilism into the path of every neurosis known to man. The Left refuses to believe that socialism has already been tried enough. So, for the Left the course for liberal Utopia is clear (and we all should know by now where it ends): culture-wide mental fatigue, self-defeatism, misery, poverty, despair and death.
The productive are fast approaching a point of no return. That is when the physical strength of society has been sapped to such an extent that a generation finally is born that glorifies in production of inactivity and the rest of humanity simply cannot afford it; and, that’s when the Greece hits the Spain and California goes BK.
