In response to the “Parody” post,
FX has provided one of the most incredibly post worthy responses possible. Without further adieu, have at it FX!
You know why employment is still erratic look no further than this guys take on things.
“I am the enemy. Even though I didn’t take a paycheck for the first year of the business and later skipped other paychecks to meet payroll or to pay taxes I am somehow at fault for the fact that all of these people sitting on their asses or working their cushy government jobs with the large pensions funded by armies of tax collectors and regulators may have to go without.”
This regime has declared a rhetorical and bureaucratic war on those who make the economy go and thrive on a par with FDR’s “economic royalist” demagoguery which caused the depression to go on for seven years longer than it otherwise would have.
When the person with the guns and the force of the “law” speak people tend to take them seriously. Obama and his hatchet men are waging war against the private sector openly depending on the an purposefully uneducated and propagandized populace to not recognize a regime that is openly opposed to American ideals and wishes to impose a belligerently ignorant elite as the final arbiters of our existence.
These sophists often advance the big lie that “life is too complex” never acknowledging that it is they with their Toquevillian plethora of rules and regulations are the reason life is “complex”. In their conceited fashion they “fix” the ills of society only to fail and implement ever more complex and ineffectively disastrous fixes never once thinking that it is they who are the cause of societies ever growing miseries. But we must always judge them by their intentions. Even with good intentions they have killed hundreds of millions and immiserated further billions with their “enlightened” genius and delusions of competence.
They have made the judgement man cannot govern himself but of course exempt themselves from such conclusions as they make the false case for themselves in their “right” to rule you. This is what give rise to such thinking as “you didn’t build” and tax cuts for the productive are spending. It is a perverse mindset that has become pandemic among the elite ruling classes and must be expurgated from the body politic. Income produced predates governments. This isn’t a chicken or the egg paradox. Individual initiative and economic activity comes first. Collective action via government only exists to guarantee the individual rights of the community from depredation of those who would abrogate those rights No more. No less.
The next politician or talking head that accepts the premise of how to pay for tax reductions ought be hooted off stage, tarred and feathered and ridden out of town on a rail. This is confiscation pure and simple as those same politician have no problem putting their priorities(getting elected) ahead of the property owners priorities. Government is supposed to discourage theft not engage in it for it’s own aggrandizement. This is first and foremost the raison d’etre of the collectivist state. The more of the assets of the community they can command the more power they wield the more oppressive they become. It is this type of government that leads to the cronyism we see now not unfettered capitalism which is the absence of governmental restraint.
The more power a government wields the more corrupt and corruptible it is. This is part of the reason our constitution limited the role of government. The narrower the power and authority exercised the fewer the chances for mischief. The irony is that all the goo-goo progressives, you know the ones who have banished religion and traditional morality from the public square, by deprecating tradtional morality in favor of government control have made cronyism MORE likely not less.
