POLITICAL: Calling the Democratic budget and tax policy “socialistic”? Yes!


A critical look and commentary on the news as found on TV, radio and in the newspapers.

*** begin quote ***

Larry Kudlow, that Republican ideologue on CNBC, calls the Democratic budget and tax policy “socialistic.”

*** end quote ***

As a little L libertarian, I’m not pleased with EITHER “party”. At least the “conservatives” are closer the “truth” of freedom and liberty that the “Rockefeller Republicans” or any “Democrat”. I think that “socialism” is fair criticism from FDR onward. Probably even since 1913 and the various wars of colonizations (i.e., Spanish American and WW1). Unfortunately, we’ve lost the “American Revolutionary Dream” after the “Civil” War. Which more properly should be called the War of Northern Aggression or the Second American Revolution. Stealing the wealth of the productive class to “redistribute” it to the unproductive class is the hallmark of socialism’s promise. Like most gooferment efforts, it fails at that too. Funny how the benefits seem to accrue to the politicians, their friends, the bureaucrats, and the elite. Stuck on their way to the rest of us no doubt. National Socialism, Communism, European Socialism, Italian Fascism, or just Mercantilism. Call it what you want but it is NOT freedom and liberty. When we get back to the American Dream, we can take the plastic garbage off the Statue of Liberty and welcome everyone who want to work hard again. End welfare and all the gooferment intrusions and the people will thrive and provide. There ain’t no such thing as free lunch. No matter what politicians promise you; they can’t deliver it!

TECHNOLOGY: The Digital TV shift screwed up big time!


How We Bungled the Digital Television Transition By Eliot Van Buskirk EmailFebruary 20, 2009 | 2:39:09 PM

This additional factor added to the need for this expensive delay. “Why the hell – excuse me – why in 2005 did they decide February 17th was a good time for this transition?”

It’s just another example of “gooferment”!

Never mind the Fifth Amendment violate against “takings”. Which this was pure and simple.

More money down the DC rathole!

RANT: Drought is an excuse for more gooferment control


Calif. declares drought emergency, mulls rationing

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb 27 (Reuters) – California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on Friday declared a state emergency due to drought and said he would consider mandatory water rationing in the face of nearly $3 billion in economic losses from below-normal rainfall this year.

Interesting the RINO’s response … gooferment force.

Not that a democrat’s response would have been different.

Interesting how water if treated as a commodity could be different.

Interesting how gooferment in the “water” business manages to be unable to supply consumer demand. (Doesn’t happen at McDonalds!)

How about metering usage and having new more expensive water. Privatize “water”. Eliminate the gooferment in any role concerning water; no law, regulations, or interest.

Put people in control. And, we’d have water galore. Maybe someone might even invent a way to store water to even out the droughts. Or, even make it!?!
