Atlas is Shrugging


That was from Part I. For you stupid fucks that missed the closure on that one, “Nov 6 2012 is up to you”, this is Part II:

Think about it.

    Video One:
    What a damn liar!….”…you’ve made enough $$.”
    This DOES NOT make even “common sense!”

    Video Two:
    The rich already pay their fair share. that NEVER sounded right to me at all! It sounded like “gimme yours cuz I don’t want to work hard”
    They don’t CARE where the $$ comes from…they don’t want to work for it…they want to, basically, steal it from others!

    What “Fair Share Law”? Those people who make a fortune either inherited it….worked for it because someone at some point HAD A DREAM. They worked to make that dream come true. They hire people to work for their companies and corporations and add to the economy and the good of the people directly as well as indirectly.

    The government, as it is today, has proven they DO NOT KNOW HOW TO RUN A BUSINESS except to run it into the ground.

    “There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation…
    One is by sword…
    The other is by debt.”

    Again the ruling classes mindset is defined by this one simple statement which flies over every ones head-That tax cuts must be “paid for”. In order for this to make any sense it must be assumed all property and income is at the governments disposal. This is clearest indication that in their minds the own all the means of production and that the taxes you pay are rent. They have the final say over how you allocate your resource and how much you deserve to benefit from your efforts.

    But of course like all leftist paradigms it fall apart on contact with logic. They claim that we can’t decrease spending except the “spending”(if it has to be paid for it must be spending) that is incurred by reducing taxes. This is the only “spending” that the left abhors. They claim that spending is “investment” yet they will not let those who earn the money invest it in the way that may be most advantageous and effective in the community and as they aggregate the country at large. Thus “investment” is defined down to mean redistribution along political lines not economic. If someone is self interested in the result by God you know that person is going to do his due diligence . In the governance their is no punishment for failure and only more money to be be extracted from the successful in order to fund the ineptitude of those for whom failure is a way of life.

    The definition of fair is getting the reward you earned based on how well you have served your fellow man(paraphrase of Dr Walter E Willams). The biggest “robber baron” businesses in their “greed’ have done more to serve their fellow man by providing jobs at liveable wages and products that are cheaper and of higher quality and that provide a higher standard of living than in anytime in human history than all the government bureaucrats ever hired could produce in 1000 lifetimes. In fact progressive conception of government by expert has been a net drag on humanity’s standard of living as they constrict growth by unwarranted complexity and onerous taxation as they take a bigger cut of the economic output of the people. The federal government basks in opulence. The outlying territories no so much.

    Professor Reynolds may be onto something.

    As usual, FX, you found a gem that fits the setting perfectly.

    Reminds me of “16 Tons”. But IMHO, “fair share” means the exact same percentage from each. Let’s call it 15%. To allow for cost of living, let us use $15K as the start point. Anything above that, you pay this percentage. And no, you don’t get a return if you haven’t paid in.

    Indeed. Where comes the point when their rulership of you becomes more distasteful than your dependence on them?

    Poet, I now have that quote in my files. It IS perfect…and exactly what he is doing.

    Poet is an excellent researcher, as we are so frequently reminded. Check the new post, but go get a cup of coffee first. You’re gonna be there a while.

    upaces88:. The biggest scandal to come out (I hope) is the cuts and outright refusal to pay veterans their benefits.

    This nation did this one time before and fired on the WW one veterans in DC, I believe that’s why they are buying so many rounds of ammo, because the veterans will be the first victims, as always. You can deny me but if I get any chance I am taking it.

    Didn’t he already start that about a year ago? Didn’t he cut their Military Health Insurance?

    Where you are saying is the very reason I think that Chris (that sniper) was murdered. I do hope the others are going into hiding….because they are the ones who have the best shot (so-to-speak) of removing him.

    He knew there was/is a plan in place by the vets. About a month or two ago is when he started really demoralizing the military even more than he had been.

    upaces88: My dear sweet mother made it to 95, she would say 10 cuss words in a sentence, if I dare say mom you just said 5 cuss words, she would tell me in another 10 cuss words why I was going to hell.

    I (you) have to love other mothers. I drove her (she never-ever drove a car) to my brothers, her sons grave twice a year, he died at 19, her first son, I was her last son of 10, five boys and five girls. Cuba is where her son Francis was murdered, he was in the Navy. I all most made it my life to find his killer when it all ended.

    She (my mother) never knew she was cussing, I truly believe after all that is said and done,
    her tears at 94 ( our last visit ) still haunt me. You mothers are TNT to me.

    Poet, If I had lost children, I’d be cussin’ too!
    Mothers have to be strong.
