How to Save the American Economy: John Galt and Thorium Reactors

Two things I noticed immediately from the film critics of Dark Knight Rises, and now of the upcoming Atlas Shrugged Part II, is that the media in general is belittling the kind of super energy power supply that is featured in those films. CLICK HERE FOR AN EXAMPLE. In Dark Knight Rises Bruce Wayne has funded essentially a thorium reactor that will power Gotham City with the cleanest and most powerful energy yet devised on earth. In Atlas Shrugged Part II John Galt has built a special engine that is capable of running off static electricity, literally pulling electrons out of the air much the way lightning forms in nature. Both technologies are based on scientific fact yet are presented in superhero films as a solution to the world’s energy, financial, and environmental impact issues surrounding sustainable power. There is a good reason for that belittlement–because anything that is not coal, solar, wind, oil, or any other established technology, is a threat to the financial roots those technologies have established in human culture.

Even the liberal press who leans in the direction of environmental concerns find the kind of energy supply shown in Dark Knight Rises and Atlas Shrugged as science fiction regulated to childhood fantasies. What they fail to disclose is that their opinions are formulated around the millions of dollars traditional power supply companies have spent on congressman, senators and lawyers through lobbyists to protect their monopolies. The media are victims of a protection racket propelled by the political establishment to cover for the money that lobbyists spent on legislators to shape public opinion. All the parties involved in the racket are committed to their own doomed futures with a foolish pursuit of the kind of power that is produced by traditional sources in order to protect the jobs, the flow of money, and the long-term contracts that have been set up by the emergence of electricity.

But, the concepts shown in Dark Knight Rises and Atlas Shrugged are not science fiction, but rather are science fact. Thorium in fact is a source of nuclear power that was developed as far back as the middle of the Twentieth Century and President Nixon was firmly committed to developing it as a way to inject a lot of life into the American economy. But politics got in the way and threw roadblocks up at every attempt. When Three Mile Island happened in America, and most recently Fukushima in Japan the media and political scallywags seized upon those tragedies to frighten a timid public away from nuclear energy—so to preserve the public need of dirty energy by which many millions of current jobs rely. No politician in their right mind would dare act against the job losses and union jobs of those working in the energy sectors of the American economy which would be threatened by the kind of change thorium reactors would bring to the energy industry. It would be equivalent to introducing email to the United States Post Office service. The result to traditional mail is that it’s going bankrupt because it simply can’t compete with email. Thus the same would be said of thorium reactors compared to coal-burning power plants or solar energy.

Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor technology is truly a revolution in clean energy production. Thorium is such a dense energy supply that a lifetime of energy use can be held in the palm of a hand. LFTR reactors are small and can consume nearly 100% of its fuel while current reactors only consume about 2% before the fuel becomes waste. LFTR’s process heat can turn coal and natural gas to methanol, and can be used to harvest shale oil. It can turn trash into synthetic gasoline and diesel fuel. LFTR’s can help cure cancer, provide true national energy independence, desalinate salt water and create countless jobs and national prosperity. The only thing that is preventing LFTR energy in America is over regulation of the nuclear industry created by the government in response to a panic addicted media all in the preservation of existing power sources protected by lobbyists.

Imagine being able to build a LFTR power plant in North Africa along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Not only could it produce enough power to take care of most of the northern countries, it could also turn sea water into drinkable service bringing irrigation canals to draught infested regions saving millions of lives and improving the lives of millions more. Because of LFTR technology no place on earth would have to go without water and no human being would have to die of thirst. It would enrich the lives of every human being on the planet.

There are many people in politics who do not wish to see American dependence on foreign oil go away, because they profit a great deal from that arrangement. They also do not wish to turn deserts green and feed the world, because then there would be no altruism from which they could act as middlemen of kindness. They do not wish to eliminate nuclear waste as LFTR does because then opposition to nuclear power by the public would be removed. They do not wish to turn trash into fuel, because then there would be no environmental danger to protest against, giving their fruitless lives less meaning. These types of people do not wish the world to be truly better. They wish to keep energy dependence alive and well because a dependent population tends to look toward a leader, and they fantasies to provide that leadership, even at the expense of other people’s freedom.

If America could rid itself of its fearful lobbyists and the politicians that eat from their hands stepping forward and embracing LFTR technology, the entire economy of The United States would change for the better. Such a decision would affect each and every citizen of America with new energy that is found in North America in great abundance that is clean, powerful, and clearly the next step for the human race. What is holding back our society from the millions of new jobs LFTR would create is a corrupt political system and a toothless media more committed to progressive politics than the kind of future LFTR could bring not just to America, but the world.

The misery of a failed economy, of world hunger, of people dying of cancer, of dirty energy and environmental hazards are self-inflicted because the potential of LFTR technology is available right now and has been for a number of years. But it has been concealed in order to protect the old way of doing business from the new way. What has happened is equivalent to the car companies at the turn of the century being prevented from emerging as a business because the makers of horse carriages lobbied congress to create laws to prevent the car companies from buying tires. The power of the energy lobby has been to protect how money was made yesterday, not in developing how it will be made tomorrow.
When film critics attempt to belittle an emerging technology it is not because they find it offensive, or silly. It is because it threatens the system they serve as a member of the accepted collective. They are acting as agents of attack against any threat to their primitive knowledge, because they wish to preserve the static intellectualism that they have built their lives around. When critics come out against the new Atlas Shrugged film it is not that the movie is bad, or the film narrative is poor. It is because they represent in real life what the fictional character of John Galt is attempting to warn the world about.

In the book Atlas Shrugged John Galt creates a society for those brave enough, and smart enough to comprehend it deep in the mountains of Colorado. He calls it Galt’s Gulch—otherwise known as Atlantis. It is a paradise on earth where he his friends flee the parasites of The United States resisting the inventions of the truly brilliant and creative. That society is made possible by John Galt’s miracle power generator, very similar to the LFTR technology discussed in this article. I have reported here at Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom many technological achievements that are being held up by an overly regulated nation such as cures for cancer, flying cars, and extraordinary botanical growth methods which point to a world of tomorrow what we could have today if not for the degrees of collectivism invented by Karl Marx which is behind almost every modern political action. It is because of Marxist subscription to social collectivism that wonderful technologies like Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor’s have been placed on the shelf to protect the infrastructure of yesterday and the jobs created by that faded dream. The pain and suffering our society is anguishing through now, the mindless war for absolutely no reason but to keep politicians in power and crony capitalism thriving through lobbyists is completely avoidable and senseless. It’s a self-imposed pain created by the masochists in love with Marxism—with huge government bureaucracy, and a political class drunk on tax payer funded power.

Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor technology is not being discussed in the mainstream news because it threatens the monopolies of the past. Even though every politician wishes to get elected on promises they make to fix the problems of our day, deep in their hearts they never want the problems to actually be solved. They crave environmental issues, unstable conditions in the Middle East, nuclear melt downs with radiation that kills thousands because it leaves society scrambling for a leader to save the day, which never comes. So long as there are problems in the world, the politician has a job to do, and Washington—along with every parasite who lives off the money flowing down K-Street strives to keep that system intact. LFTR technology actually solves many modern problems, and that is why it is being shoved under the carpet, and kept from the public’s eyes.

So when the movie Atlas Shrugged Part II comes out understand that the plot of some brilliant man who invents a new form of energy which could save the world and give rise to a new day for the human race, but instead retreats to the mountains of Colorado to selfishly keep it for a small group of capitalists, that it’s more science fact than science fiction. Technology like what John Galt fictionally invented in Atlas Shrugged is actually quite real, and the methods which prevent that technology from benefiting mankind is just as real as the fictional tale claims. The critics who will pan the movie as ludicrous and immature—even selfish are the thieves who are keeping the world prisoner to their Marxist philosophy of collectivism in service to the political elite at the expense of innovation and human prosperity. The by-product of this philosophy is misery by the truck loads and mountains of broken dreams stamping out forever the light behind the eyes of every child with the courage to question their surroundings and crush the spirit of all the children who didn’t leaving an adult population of mindless drones and school levy supporters.

“Community Conversations” at Lakota: Why a “NO” vote is the taxpayer’s STRIKE

Do you want to know what spending $160,000 tax payer dollars buys you? Well, at the Lakota School System which is in my home district, it buys a lot. I have sent dozens and dozens of Letters to the Editor over the years to The Pulse Journal, which is my hometown paper, and I have never received so much grief as I did when I submitted the letter below in direct response to Karen Mantia’s announcement of her “Community Conversations” program, which is essentially a new way to spin the old Delphi Technique, which has been covered at this site extensively. You can read about Mantia’s announcement of this new program which is starting to hit Lakota neighborhood streets as this posting is going up on Thursday, September 13, 2012.  CLICK HERE to review that article. 

The letter I submitted this past week came back at me and the reporters tried to explain my figure of $160,000 spent on “Community Conversations” was wrong and that if I wanted to revise my statement I could try again in the future. Further, they let me know that the real number for how much Lakota is spending on their “Community Conversations” program was only $40,000, which is true if one only looks at that small piece of the pie. But I explained to them that I considered all the money spent on public relations to be direct factors into how much the school district was willing to spend on passing another levy, and that number was $160,000 as outlined by their own article on the matter seen at the below link.

http://www.journal-news.com/news/news/local/school-dedicates-160k-to-community-relations/nQC4W/

I told them that if they didn’t want to publish my letter that I’d find another way. From my view point, my letter will be seen by more people if I publish it here on Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom than in The Pulse Journal, but I wanted to give the paper the opportunity to show that they were not lap dogs for the Lakota School System. But their response showed that they are clearly in line with the public relations strategy that the school has formulated for the 2012 school year, which is to clean up their image, and lay the foundations for a levy increase when the LEA contract expires in 2014. By then, they hope that the public has forgotten all this levy failure mess, and they can begin to inject more money into their unmanaged budget with tax increases and smiling faces convincing everyone that it’s “all for the children.”

To get an idea of the kind of lap dog reporting I’m referring to, that hiring public relations specialists will purchase, have a look at the latest Michael Clark article from The Cincinnati Enquirer as seen below. This is what I wanted to give The Pulse Journal the opportunity to dispute, but they obviously showed their leanings, which is perfectly fair. But they cannot wonder why people will seek out other sources to get their news, if the newspapers simply become purchased advocates for the union controlled education system.

http://westchesterbuzz.com/2012/09/10/lakota-high-schools-welcome-two-new-principals/

My article as I wrote it appears below. I had originally thought the real public relations number was between $165K to $167K but I was willing to concede to the $160K number reported by The Pulse Journal. However, the spirit of the letter was to convey the disrespect the district was showing by refusing to listen to the vote of the tax payers in the previous three levy attempts. The district was instructed in face to face conversations how to manage their finances, which is reflected in the letter below and they have ignored those instructions. Instead, they have elected to purchase advocats for higher taxes to build consensus among just enough voters to turn the numbers in their favor on the next levy attempt which they plan before the 2014 LEA contract is up. As Karen Mantia said, Lakota does not have a levy on the ballot this year, but it soon will, which make no mistake about it, the “Community Conversations” is directly attempting to ease community tensions enough to pass a future levy. That is why my letter below is worded the way that it is:

I find it arrogant that Karen Mantia from Lakota made mentioned she was seeking hosts for the “community conversations” program that Lakota is spending $160,000 tax payer dollars on in order to find out what the community wants. After three failed levies I would have thought they would have figured everything out by now. So let me reiterate what Lakota should have already been doing all along, but need to implement before the LEA contract is up in 2014, where the union employees will expect a restoration of their pay increases, wrecking the budget and dictating another levy attempt.

Lakota is expected to provide an excellent school system that is one of the best in Ohio. Lakota is expected also to lessen its tax footprint on the community for which it resides. Lakota is expected to acknowledge that it has declining enrollment and should have no problem balancing its budget now that fewer students are attending school in a community with fewer households in the district with children in them. Lakota is expected to force its employees to take a 5% pay reduction before it ever considers another levy. Tax increases impact businesses at a much higher rate than the residents will have to pay. And Lakota is expected to push its high dollar employees off the payroll in exchange for younger, cheaper employees to keep its budget under control.

Very easy—and Lakota could have saved $160,000 to learn it. All they had to do was read this paper.

Rich Hoffman

Currently in Chicago the teachers are on strike turning down a 16% increase in wages. They are demanding a 30% raise and are presently marching around the streets of Chicago leaving the children high and dry, proving that the unions do not give a damn about any children. In 2008 Lakota had their union threaten a strike which forced the school board to cave under the pressure and give all the teachers a pay increase, which caused a budget deficit forcing Lakota to attempt to pass three school levies to balance their budget. People like me, fought those tax increases because we don’t like what the union did, and I refuse to give them more of my money for their despicable acts against my community. My argument from day one was not against the Lakota School Board or even the administrators, it was with the unions that control public education and I decided a few years ago that I would not support them any longer. I will not support a system that feeds them even indirectly, and I want their hooks out of my community. My anger comes when the school superintendent and school board members apologize for their lack of management by siding with the unions because they fear the kind of strikes that Chicago is currently going through, and Lakota went through just four years ago more than they do the voters.

When I organized a tax resistance against Lakota’s levy attempt I did it as a citizen strike against the union demands. A “NO” vote is the only voice a tax payer has, and it is the job of the school management to listen. At Lakota when they decided to hire public relations personnel to attack the NO voters, which is what they are doing, they are telling people like me that they fear the teachers union more than they fear my ability to organize against their school levy, and that is an insult.

When after three votes to decline tax increase proposals, the school district elected to spend $160,000 to attack the position of the NO vote, that action is a declaration of support in favor of the Lakota teacher’s union, which is the cause of all the financial trouble. If the school spent $160,000 of tax payer money trying to undo the position of the teacher’s union I would consider the money well spent, but instead they are attacking those who are refusing to pay additional taxes to support a greedy labor union.

In essence, a NO vote isn’t any different than what the teachers union in Chicago is doing when they failed to report to work, or Lakota attempted the same in protest over their pay and insurance contributions, only the NO voters have a right, and obligation to say NO. The unions do not have a right to the money they are asking for and if they refuse to work due to a strike, then the job of management in the school system in question has an obligation to find employees who will do the work, because the tax payers paid for that work, and not for public employees to march around in the street holding signs and demanding infinite amounts of money. When a voter casts a NO vote, they are also on strike against the unions themselves, and for that the newspapers, the television stations and the schools owe those people the same respect they give to the pro union supporters, and if they don’t, they are guilty of supporting one side, and not the other.

That’s when the crime of using tax payer money, like what Lakota did, and The Pulse Journal debated with me over in my Letter to the Editor to attempt to erode away the NO vote, (THE TAXPAYERS STRIKE) becomes a serious matter. All supporters who pick the side of the union have declared that they respect the taxpayers who voted NO less than they do the teachers union who will threaten a strike on a whim to get what they want whenever they want it. And that is a mistake.

Without the taxpayer, there is no union. Without the taxpayer, there is no school. Without the taxpayer, there are no people to read the newspapers, or watch the news. Without the taxpayer there is nothing. It would be thought that there would be more respect given to the tax payer by all the parties above, but they don’t because in history the unions are far more radical and nasty to deal with, where the tax payer has been peaceful and shown themselves to be willing to be shoved around and bullied.

That is, until now…………………….

 

When Lakota tries their fourth levy attempt, they will learn that they had far less to fear from the unions than the taxpayer, and they will wish they did what I stated in my Letter to the Editor. They chose poorly in fearing the strike of the unions over the strike of the taxpayers.

A Business Owner Speaks: All the reasons nobody should vote for Emperor Obama

What follows is a note from a mythical North Carolina businessman. It is so well written that I don’t want to do it the disservice of further commentary. I would encourage you dear reader to comprehend this letter fully, and send it to a friend, because it articulates perfectly the crises of our day.

To All My Valued Employees,

There have been some rumblings around the office about the future of this company, and more specifically, your job. As you know, the economy has changed for the worse and presents many challenges.  However, the good news is this: The economy doesn’t pose a threat to your job.

What does threaten your job however, is the changing political landscape in this country. Of course, as your employer, I am forbidden to tell you whom to vote for – it is against the law to discriminate based on political affiliation, race, creed, religion, etc.

Please vote for who you think will serve your interests the best. However, let me tell you some little tidbits of fact which might help you decide what is in your best interest. First, while it is easy to spew rhetoric that casts employers against employees, you have to understand that for every business owner there is a back story.

This back story is often neglected and overshadowed by what you see and hear.  Sure, you see me park my Mercedes outside. You saw my big home at last year’s Christmas party. I’m sure all these flashy icons of luxury conjure up some idealized thoughts about my life. However, what you don’t see is the back story.

I started this company 12 years ago. At that time, I lived in a 300 square foot studio apartment for 3 years. My entire living space was converted into an office so I could put forth 100% effort into building a company, which by the way, would eventually employ you.

My diet consisted of Ramen Pride noodles because every dollar I spent went back into this company. I drove a rusty Toyota Corolla with a defective transmission. I didn’t have time to date. Often times, I stayed home on weekends, while my friends went out drinking and partying. In fact, I was married to my business– hard work, discipline, and sacrifice.

Meanwhile, my friends got jobs. They worked 40 hours a week and made a modest $50K a year and spent every dime they earned. They drove flashy cars and lived in expensive homes and wore fancy designer clothes. Instead of hitting Nordstrom’s for the latest hot fashion item, I was trolling through the Goodwill store extracting any clothing item that didn’t look like it was birthed in the 70s.

My friends refinanced their mortgages and lived a life of luxury. I, however, did not. I put my time, my money, and my life into a business — with a vision that eventually, some day, I too, will be able to afford these luxuries my friends supposedly had.

So, while you physically arrive at the office at 9 am, mentally check in at about noon, and then leave at 5 pm, I don’t. There is no “off” button for me. When you leave the office, you are done and you have a weekend all to yourself. I unfortunately do not have the freedom. I eat, ****, and breathe this company every minute of the day. There is no rest. There is no weekend. There is no happy hour. Every day this business is attached to me like a 1 day old baby.

You, of course, only see the fruits of that garden — the nice house, the Mercedes, the vacations… You never realize the back story and the sacrifices I’ve made.. Now, the economy is falling apart and I, the guy that made all the right decisions and saved his money, have to bail out all the people who didn’t.

The people that overspent their paychecks suddenly feel entitled to the same luxuries that I earned and sacrificed a decade of my life for. Yes, business ownership has its benefits but the price I’ve paid is steep and not without wounds. Unfortunately, the cost of running this business, and employing you, is starting to eclipse the threshold of marginal benefit and let me tell you why:

I am being taxed to death and the government thinks I don’t pay enough. I have state taxes. Federal taxes.  Property taxes. Sales and use taxes. Payroll taxes. Workers compensation taxes. Unemployment taxes. Taxes on taxes. I have to hire a tax man to manage all these taxes and then guess what? I have to pay taxes for employing him. Government mandates and regulations and all the accounting that goes with it, now occupy most of my time. On Oct 15th, I wrote a check to the US Treasury for $288,000 for quarterly taxes. You know what my “stimulus” check was? Zero. Nada. Zilch.

The question I have is this: Who is stimulating the economy? Me, the guy who has provided 14 people good paying jobs and serves over 2,200,000 people per year with a flourishing business? Or, the single mother sitting at home pregnant with her fourth child waiting for her next welfare check?

Obviously, government feels the latter is the economic stimulus of this country. The fact is, if I deducted (Read: Stole) 50% of your paycheck you’d quit and you wouldn’t work here. I mean, why should you? That’s nuts. Who wants to get rewarded only 50% of their hard work? Well, I agree which is why your job is in jeopardy. Here is what many of you don’t understand .. to stimulate the economy you need to stimulate what runs the economy. Had suddenly government mandated to me that I didn’t need to pay taxes, guess what? Instead of depositing that $288,000 into the Washington black-hole, I would have spent it, hired more employees, and generated substantial economic growth. My employees would have enjoyed the wealth of that tax cut in the form of promotions and better salaries. But you can forget it now.

When you have a comatose man on the verge of death, you don’t defibrillate and shock his thumb thinking that will bring him back to life, do you? Or, do you defibrillate his heart? Business is at the heart of America and always has been. To restart it, you must stimulate it, not kill it. Suddenly, the power brokers in Washington believe the mud of America are the essential drivers of the American economic engine.

Nothing could be further from the truth and this is the type of change you can keep. So where am I going with all this? It’s quite simple. If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, my reaction will be swift and simple. I fire you. I fire your co-workers. You can then plead with the government to pay for your mortgage, your SUV, and your child’s future. Frankly, it isn’t my problem anymore. Then, I will close this company down, move to another country, and retire.

You see, I’m done. I’m done with a country that penalizes the productive and gives to the unproductive. My motivation to work and to provide jobs will be destroyed, and with it, will be my citizenship.

While tax cuts to 95% of America sounds great on paper, don’t forget the back story: If there is no job, there is no income to tax. A tax cut on zero dollars is zero. So, when you make decision to vote, ask yourself, who understands the economics of business ownership and who doesn’t? Whose policies will endanger your job? Answer those questions and you should know who might be the one capable of saving your job. While the media wants to tell you “It’s the economy Stupid” I’m telling you it isn’t.

If you lose your job, it won’t be at the hands of the economy; it will be at the hands of a political hurricane that swept through this country, steamrolled the Constitution, and will have changed its landscape forever. If that happens, you can find me in the South Caribbean sitting on a beach, retired, and with no employees to worry about.

Signed, Your boss

Paul Ryan as Vice President: The many monsters in politics waiting to be slain

I am far from a Romney follower. I will vote for him because I think between Obama and him, at least Romney understands money. But I am not a fan of machine politics. Technically Romney should not be a candidate yet since he has not been to the convention to receive his delegates. Ron Paul has a lot of supporters and if the process were allowed to work properly would have given Romney a run for his money down in Tampa at the convention. But as it stands, the media has helped shape the machine politics of the Republican Party with the demand to know who they—the media– were going to offer to the American people. After Fox News pulled Judge Napolitano off his show FreedomWatch seemingly due to his constant support of Ron Paul it began to be clear that the reason so many people were disenchanted with politics is because the system is corrupt to its very core from the very top to the very bottom. Even on the conservative side there was an extreme desire for the status quo, and Mitt Romney represents the worst of this modern tendency to “shape” a president as opposed to allowing the democratic process to work within our republic. By studying how Romney has been placed into the presidential race by eliminating the competition around him so that by the convention in Tampa everything is a mere formality—part of the show—it is easy to understand how Obama became the most modern and sinister version of a Manchurian Candidate representing progressive politics rather than tradition.

And right on cue, the Republicans have offered Paul Ryan to appease conservatives like me and others who are eager for major financial changes as a running mate for Romney to energize the conservative base with unity. In fact Ron Paul supporters were told ahead of the convention not to speak to the media unless they had something nice to say about Mitt Romney, because it was important to show a united front. Basically, what they meant is if you can’t say something nice about Romney, then don’t come to the convention. Paul Ryan the fiscal budget wiz from congress is on the ticket to appease the “radicals” like me who simply want government to live within their means. But as Vice President Ryan won’t be able to do any damage to the actual Republican establishment so all will be safe for four more years.

Even so, I thought it was interesting to see The White House reaction to the announcement that Ryan is going to be on the Romney ticket. Ryan is the only politician who has even offered a budget to congress to help solve the massive wave of entitlement spending that is threatening the security of our nation. Ryan is hardly a radical, but has been painted as one, simply for suggesting reforms to American programs that are built on principles of Keynesian economics, which has been a dismal, unfettered, global failure. Shortly after the announcement of Ryan on the Romney presidential ticket I received the email seen below from the Obama gang. They see Ryan on the conservative ticket as a serious threat to the Obama presidency for good reason, and it is important to study the merit of their fears.

Friend —

Paul Ryan will be Mitt Romney’s running mate.

What you need to know right now: This election is about values, and today Romney doubled down on his commitment to take our country back to the failed policies of the past.

Congressman Paul Ryan is best known as the author of a budget so radical The New York Times called it “the most extreme budget plan passed by a House of Congress in modern times.” With Mitt Romney’s support, Ryan would end Medicare as we know it and slash the investments we need to keep our economy growing — all while cutting taxes for those at the very top.

Over the next few days, Romney’s campaign and its allies will tell a very different story about Paul Ryan.

Our job is to make sure Americans know the truth about what Romney’s choice says about him as a candidate and leader, and to stand with President Obama and Vice President Biden at another major moment in this campaign.

Say you’re with them:

http://my.barackobama.com/Obama-Biden

Thanks for all you’re doing. More to come.
Messina

Campaign Manager
Obama for America

In this case the word “extreme” is used in the same way against Ryan that it has been used on a much smaller scale against me, and other tax reformers in public education that simply want Keynesian economics removed from government programs. When the Obama campaign discusses attacking the wage earners at the top and redistributing that income to those at the bottom they are in essence espousing their support of Keynesian economic policies created in England under the spread of Marxism throughout Europe. It is a communist concept, and in that letter to thousands of supporters, Jim Messina, campaign anger of Obama for America is promoting communism to his readers and sees free market economists like Paul Ryan as a literal demon to progressive economic theory.

I know a bit about this issue, and of a local connection that Paul Ryan has in the Cincinnati area through Rich Hart, Paul Ryan’s economic professor from the University of Miami in Oxford. I have been to several public speeches that Professor Hart has given, and have learned a lot about economics from him. Last year in fact I worked with my friend at 700 WLW Doc Thomson to get Hart on his radio show to talk about economics and the different theories there were along with the pros and cons of each. You can review that article and listen to that interview at the link below.

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/06/16/rich-hart-explains-the-strange-world-of-economics-the-devil-is-in-the-details/

The short of it is that Paul Ryan has a budget plan that could work for America. It won’t stop the wheels of machine politics on both sides, a castigated media that has no editorial courage, or the spread of infiltrated communism within our government institutions, primarily our schools. But Ryan’s budget plan may very well fix Americas economic problems which are the biggest issues currently on the table. If the goal of a political party is the complete destruction of America, of course they don’t want someone like Ryan to be second in command at The White House. On the other side, machine Republicans are hoping that nothing happens to Romney so that he can maintain the status quo in The White House and keep the money flowing to them through crony capitalism—which is not the same as pure capitalism. Crony capitalism is an evil thing that has no place in politics from either side, but has rotted out any political legitimacy from the center out.

In this election the closest thing to reform that America will get is Paul Ryan, and it’s at least a start designed to appease the Tea Party groups and so-called radical reformers of economic policy. It doesn’t make me happy but does frame up who the lesser of the two evils are, and that is clearly those in the Obama camp. To see the manipulative dialogue they instantly put out against Ryan is exactly why the economy is currently faltering. Those idiots in The White House don’t have a clue as to how economics work even on a basic level. They should have attended a few classes with Rich Hart, Ryan’s economics professor at Miami University so they could at least have a basic understanding. But their goal is not to fix anything, it’s to collapse it, and Ryan on the presidential ticket is a threat to their intentions.

As a country, we are a long way from solving our most basic problems, but the first is at least the acknowledgment of a candidate in Ryan that is willing to expose the economic failures of the Obama administration on a large stage. And that much I support even though the Ron Paul supporters have been suppressed and stuffed into a dark corner as a way to avoid the truly tough reforms our country will have to go through at some point in time, or perish all together. Ryan has been offered like a sacrificial victim to the gods of the Tea Party as a way to preserve the Republican machine for just a while longer. The real reformers will be outside the convention under a gag order from the Republican Party to keep quiet and show a united front so that the evil monster Obama can be defeated. I get that, but I do it with the knowledge that once the Obama monster is defeated that the ally that fights Obama must also be slain in order for anything Paul Ryan suggests economically to actually be implemented in a political system corrupt with many monsters with many heads all running to the beat of machine politics.

Using Conroversy to Find the Truth in Public Education: ‘League of Wisdom’ Rises

I know this is a long article but complicated themes require advanced explanation, which is why I provided you with a little music to listen to that sums up the content you are about to read.  For ease of review I have linked many of the supporting articles to show clearly the path that brought us to this point in time.  If it hasn’t been obvious by now my premier strategy in fighting the Lakota School Levy has been a gradual increase of social controversy starting off small, and increasing with each levy attempt until something snaps. That will continue until the district makes drastic pay cuts in an honest attempt to balance their budget. The reasoning is an admission I came to years ago that the term “political correctness” was created by leftist extremists used to shackle the good manners of millions of conservatives. By holding conservatives to the impossible standard of living by “political correctness” rules, social parasites have been able to advance their own cause with great effectiveness. They often break their own rules while conservatives wither in paralysis by their sheer politeness. I decided not to play by those rules so to show others that what was holding conservatives back was not the superior philosophy of the political left, but the fear that conservatives have of controversy. By embracing controversy, I hoped to show thousands that the way to beat progressives was by not playing by the rules “they” created—and to not fear calling things by their real names.

If I had to do it again, I would home school my children during all their school years instead of just for a couple of years as my wife and I did. I never felt public education was teaching my children the dynamic aspects of life that I thought they should be exposed to. Instead, I always felt public education was teaching them to be “mediocre,” which was not what I desired as a father for my children. So to me, public education at its absolute best is a dismal failure.

Many haven’t figured it out yet but over $110 million Americans receive some sort of welfare, which can be seen on this chart released on The Blaze.com. This chart does not include Social Security, Medicare, or public education, and yes, to me public education is a form of welfare.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/this-chart-showing-welfare-dependency-will-ruin-your-day/

The sharp increase in these numbers shows the goal of the Obama White House which has been the goal of all socialists who have been operating in America and that is to buy votes. Currently with all the trouble Obama is in with legal issues and a dismal economy, he still has 50% of the vote, because more than half the nation gets some sort of check from the government as shown by the chart.

Public education is one of the largest socialist scams ever perpetrated on the American people. It in essence attempts to teach socialist values to young people while selling the service to the parents and the adult population as essential to a child’s well-being. If I had to raise a child today I would teach the child at home using the K-through 12 online computer course shown at the link below. This is a much more efficient method of teaching young people instead of attending an expensive brick and mortar school full of socialist union thumping teachers’ hell bent on the destruction of The United States. If any proof were needed that public education is a terrible travesty just look at the welfare numbers. When half the population is on welfare public education has failed to produce self-reliant individuals who are productive with entrepreneurial thinking. Instead, public schools make wishy-washy liberal leaning young people who take too long to grow up. Many of them don’t begin to see the light until their late 30’s these days and by then they have already started to raise misfits of their own, and the damage is already done.

When I first began my journey on this education reform path that I am on, it began by simply pointing out that the labor contracts for the public school unions were inflated. Since I had experience in my family after raising my own children that much of the education claims public schools were making toward a child’s well-being were inflated, because I had taken a very active role in teaching my children, I felt it was only fair to challenge the union position. Back on September 20th of 2010 I went on 700 WLW to talk about the real reason that my school district of Lakota needed a school levy, was to pay for the excessive wages of its employees. As I was doing that Kyle Olsen was putting up billboards around Cincinnati exposing the scam of public education. The Ohio Education Association responded to this statement by me and Olsen with a typical response at the time from the union, which can be seen below from the Pulse Journal. To listen to my original report on 700 WLW click here. The response from the OEA shown next made me so angry that I decided after the Lakota Levy was defeated to not take my foot off the neck of public education controlled by the labor unions. After the assault by David Little, a progressive activist, I decided that I had enough of these thugs who had taken over a school where I pay an enormous amount of money in personal taxes—all so people who wanted a quality “free” education for their children could pretend they were being good parents by spending a lot of money on homes to live in a school district that was highly sought after in the real estate market. The goodness of the district was being built by my property value which is in essence wealth redistribution because it was being consumed by value to fund the welfare system of public education. Click here to see the attack from David Little against me shortly after the first WLW radio spot. You can see the entire article from the Pulse Journal at the link below.

LIBERTY TWP. — Representatives of the Lakota Education Association say they hope voters will listen to facts given out by the school district rather than “rhetoric” from a group advertising in the area on bill boards.

“It has become the trend during election campaigns for anti-levy and anti-public education groups like (Education Action Group) to surface, speaking out against public education, and then to retreat again once the elections are over,” according to a statement from the OEA.

“We think that, first of all, it’s an outside group that is anti-public schools and anti-union,” Rodney Bird, labor relations consultant for the OEA said. “We believe the voters in southwest Ohio and in Lakota are intelligent enough to make their decision on a local levy based on the facts given by the district.”

http://www.pulsejournal.com/news/news/local/lakota-union-leaders-respond-to-area-billboard-c-1/nNcxd/

 

That’s how it was back then; the unions were quoted all the time in the paper because nobody challenged them. People were afraid that the union would vandalize their homes, or that they would be publicly ridiculed within their communities. The force of the unions and the monopoly of their education empires deserved to have their asses kicked. So I started this site, Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom to contrast what the OEA said about people like me during levy elections. When the election was over, I did not go away. To this day, the union has been exposed for what they are, crooked thugs hell-bent on socialist destruction of America. After three years of very public battles the unions hardly have instigated a peep, they haven’t threatened to strike in the entire Cincinnati area primarily because of the constant coverage on 700 WLW.

I went on to do dozens and dozens of radio spots against the unions in Ohio and never were they able to come on the air and combat me, because they could not fight the truth. Instead they attempted to use the PTA organizations and the “real-estate cartels” to do their dirty work. Everyone knows that most of the pro levy supporters on an organized front are real-estate agents because they use the quality of the free schools to help sell homes, while passing the bill on to residents who already live in the community. Heads rolled and people lost their jobs on all fronts. I had a right to get angry when I discovered that volunteers supporting the union cause were camping outside the doors of a local Kroger and trying to smear my name to my friends and neighbors as they entered on a Saturday afternoon to buy groceries. Such thuggish behavior deserved an answer—it required an answer. I called them “latte sipping prostitutes with asses the size of car tires,” which is how I see the kind of people who support school levies. Click here to review. Yes it made a ruckus all over Cincinnati and I knew it would. The husbands of some of those real estate agents took offense and sided against me. But they didn’t do it because I was wrong, but because they knew I was right, and they didn’t want to face the music. They wanted instead to continue on with the illusion that education was free and that so long as everyone bent over for the union, that there would be peace in the community. They were angry with me because they needed my unquestioning compliance to their welfare use of public education to keep it quiet, and seemingly honorable.

Meanwhile reform is coming to public education even as the unions are standing in the way of progress, and much of that progress can be seen in the online programs that are beginning to explode everywhere. When I started this fight against public education it was with the knowledge that I was able to do a better job at teaching my children than the public school I sent them to could. So my wife and I home schooled them for a while and let them graduate early with online classes in high school, so they wouldn’t have to waste their time. I still had to pay taxes to the local school, even though I was able to do a better job, and that didn’t seem fair. Why should I be forced to participate in a system I think is dysfunctional, socialist, and completely inept? Why should I be forced to pay several thousand dollars a year to a public school that won’t even let children make the shape of a gun on the play ground, but will teach them how to put a condom on a fake penis in the fourth grade? The reason is because the government has a cozy relationship with organized labor to make education a monopoly in America and to take the value of property in the form of taxes to fund it in order to fulfill the local requirements of Agenda 21. Click here for review.

Ladies and gentlemen if my actions seem extreme at times over the last three years it is because you have not yet come to realize what I realized after reading those obnoxious comments from the OEA in the Pulse Journal all those years ago. We are not fighting to prevent socialism from taking over our country. It has already happened. Instead, we are fighting for our freedom once again, just as we did in at the start of the country. My beginning in that process is to fight the monopoly that dominates the minds of our youth, in public education. It is simply a form of welfare to the parents who use it for a babysitting service while they are busy with their careers. Public education is welfare even to the idiots who pay over $5000 a year in property taxes so their little child can receive a “free” education. In reality, the $5000 is cheaper than most private schools which is why parents who claim that their property tax bill is something they are glad to pay for the benefit of their children are neglecting to report because they are simply counting on public education welfare to make them appear to be better parents than they actually are while saving a tone of money on private instruction in the process.

As it can be seen, a lot has changed in the last three years, and what used to be boisterous dialogue on behalf of the unions now is seeing residents fighting back with boisterous dialogue of their own. In three short years we have changed the argument, and in three more years the brick and mortar schools will be forced to adapt entirely new philosophies. More and more people will begin to take part in the K-through-12 programs online and those people will be much less inclined to pass school levies since they aren’t using the public schools. The unions will be forced to come to reality, because people for the first time in a century are sticking up for themselves and fighting back.

If the unions had shut their mouth after my visit to 700 WLW on that September 20th day in 2010 and not attempted to come after me personally, and not went after Kyle Olsen just for speaking the truth, they may not have pissed me off so much to start this website. But they did, and because of their desire to suppress any opposition I will see this through to their end. It moved from a level of civil discussion to thuggish attempts at intimidation, which is a big no, no. If I believed that the stake of our children were truly better off in the hands of public education I would leave the matter alone. But because I did teach my children at home and do know better, I know that public education is a scam, and it’s social welfare for the young, pretentious parents who are most of the time kids themselvs—or real estate agents trying to sell a house.

Now, as opposed to the date of that Pulse Journal article shown here, much has changed. There are more people than ever who have joined our little “League of Wisdom” that have gathered at this website and taken the argument to their own districts to achieve the same results. The heart of the argument is not what is good for kids. If it were, the answer would be for all parents to home school their children—because statistically, those children are learning at a much improved rate over public school children. Instead, government schools are just another welfare program designed to tie up the wealth of a school district in a complicated United Nations program agreed to by many politicians in Washington under the advice of The Department of Education created in 1979. For the politicians who make such agreements their intention is to use education as another welfare meal ticket that paves the way for their own re-elections. Free education to the politician has the same effect as food stamps, and other government programs that are given to citizens in hopes of buying a vote. Jobs under the same system are created to support the welfare system which adds proportionally to the 110 million people on welfare already. Add to that welfare number all the people using Social Security, Medicare, and hold jobs that are government sponsored, such as teachers, police officers, fire fighters, IRS agents, ATF agents, Homeland Security personnel, GAS employees, FBI agents, CIA agents, military personnel, TSA employees, postal workers, EPA workers, BMV workers, court-house workers, General Motors workers and on and on and on, it will be discovered that well over 80% of our country is dependent on government in some degree or another. Most of those jobs were created with the same intentions as welfare was, done under the mask of goodness and safety; the real intent was to create dependence, and bloc voting. Ultimately, this has placed before America the quagmire of freedom. We’re not fighting to keep socialism from our lives, it’s already everywhere in American society and has been for so long that nobody would know what to do without socialism. We are now fighting for a freedom that founded the country, because it has already been lost, and must again be recreated in the minds of our society. That will not happen by calling things like public education by names that don’t belong to them. Currently socialists will declare that public education is a “human right.” It is not. It’s a benefit to a society that decides it wants to do something nice for the citizens of their community. That niceness is cheapened when people are forced to participate in a system they see is a failure but can’t change it because so many people have come to depend on the government service, nobody can escape the obligation any longer. When that happens politicians have already bankrupted the system beyond repair, because it’s no longer appreciated, but is expected by a society that’s addicted to welfare not always by their own doing, but simply because they held their hand out to government and discovered that shackles were placed about their wrists which tied them forever to the greedy claws of government for all eternity, or the meager duration of the individual life to be consumed like wood on a campfire.

In the end public education consumes the lives of society and leaves behind only ashes. The memory of a once burning flame is all that remains, that is eventually lost in the darkness of a cold night. That cold night is the shroud of socialism that lingers always on the outskirts of freedom. And it is that socialism that is wrapped around American thought and has placed in the minds of most the shackles of a hand-out sold as a crutch, but intended to be political paralysis. From public education the paralysis migrates into the rest of our society and will continue until freedom fighters learn that by “playing by the rules,” is to handicap success on the battlefield of ideas. It is time that those of us in this new “League of Wisdom” stop worrying about hurting the feelings of the social parasites from the political left because in so doing, we are losing our country. Playing the “high” ground will not win the war of ideas, and it’s time to get down into the trenches and fight them where they hide—which is behind the masks of truth. And it starts by not being afraid of a little controversy.

Get ready for the new conservatives……..the old ones were a lot more passive. That won’t happen again, I promise.  And Monroe, the ‘League’ has your back.

Giving Voters an Early Christmas Present: Monroe School Levy Fails

If this thing fails, what the heck does that say about us as a community? I’ll tell you…..we totally suck. Any community that doesn’t support its schools isn’t a community that anyone is going to want to live in. Housing values will take yet another nose dive (We’ve invested a ton of money in our house and the value STILL isn’t what it was when we bought it 10 years ago).

I get the economy is tough, and that some mistakes were made in the past, but what is the goal of this negative levy campaign? To punish the school board for the past mistakes? The only people who end up being punished are the kids in the schools, the teachers who have to teach them, and the rest of the community (i.e. ALL of us) whose home values will continue to NOT be what we paid for them over a decade ago. Wake up folks!

I do wonder what would have been “Achieved” if your no votes win.

there will be another levy….more money spent….so really..what did you achieve?

Sure you would have succeeded in your finger pointing campaign, but your wallet won’t end up being any fatter in the long run.

That quote came from:
http://www.mainstreetmonroe.com/voice/topic.asp?topic_id=26714

I would like to congratulate the Monroe School District for holding strong and voting down their off-season school levy that was designed to pass with low voter turnout in August. Predictably, the Monroe School Board has voted to put the levy right back on in November of 2012, which is a welcome attempt since the voter turnout will be much more intense as conservatives in Monroe will show up in droves to vote Emperor Obama out of office. Conservatives tend to vote down tax increases unless they wish to believe they can be conservative and still receive free government education that is socialist in its design.

To listen to the Monroe School District reasons for the tax increase it was to get them out of state control and pay back the money they were forced to borrow from the state to operate. If Monroe truly wished to balance their budget they would use the state control option to void the union contract and cut their labor wages by 5% to 10% which would instantly balance their budget. But there is no desire from the school board or state management to even attempt such a thing, even though it is a legal option, because the entire school system is set up to protect those union contracts which use collective bargaining to pay all teachers too much money with benefits that are entirely too generous. If Monroe wanted to balance their budget, they would attack their labor costs, not ask for more money to throw at inflated wages and benefits.

At Lakota, the district next to Monroe, after three levy defeats I proposed that the employees of the school district take a 5% cut in pay, which would have easily balanced their budget but instead the district looked for ways to remove me from the levy argument by playing manipulative politics behind the scenes which I found personally insulting. CLICK HERE TO REVIEW. They chose personal attacks rather than dealing with the trouble of their labor costs because the education system from the top to the bottom eats out of the hand of the labor unions. By the way, I would like to give the Pulse Journal’s reporter Hannah Poturalski credit for doing an article about Lakota for spending $160,000 just on public relations going into the upcoming school year because the Lakota School System is trying to cover up their reluctance to force their union to take a 5% pay cut to balance their budget. So they spent $160,000 tax payer dollars to hide their lack of management of labor wages. It’s nice to see a mainstream reporter covering the issue. Most don’t have the guts.

http://www.pulsejournal.com/news/news/local/school-dedicates-160k-to-community-relations/nQC4W/

Monroe arrogantly announced before the vote on Tuesday August 7, 2012 that if the levy failed, they would put it back up for a vote in November. The implied threat from the school board to the community was that if it did not pass the levy they’d come right back with another attempt so the community might as well vote their way. The school is using the threat of force in an inadvertent way to point out that a “NO” vote is pointless. They are basically stating to the community, “Resistance is futile. We will take our money one way or the other.” Of course they don’t come right out and say it, but instead chose to use polite language to disguise the sinister intentions.

Monroe can say things like that by siding up with their unionized labor work force because the system is rigged against the taxpayer. Schools can legally attempt to place a levy on the ballot 4 times per year, so districts like Monroe if their levy fails can go right back at the voters 3 months later till they get their money by wearing down the resistance. The Little Miami School District went to the voters 9 times before the NO voters finally gave up and the levy passed preserving the union contracts without harm. But times are changing. Up in Westerville near Columbus, Ohio that school district barely passed a 6.71 mill emergency levy on March 6th. District officials there said they needed a levy to raise $16.5 million to balance their budget. The levy costs taxpayers in Westerville $205 per $100,000 of property value and that amount is not limited to only residential homes, but each and every business in the district. The levy is a huge tax scam and residents were angry that it passed so they are using an obscure part of the Ohio Revised Code to fight back against that levy by repealing it. The same day that voters went to vote on numerous school levies including Monroe, Westerville turned in well over 5000 signatures to have their levy repealed this upcoming November. Click here to learn how to do this. If Lakota ever passes their levy I plan to use our database of NO voters to easily collect the signatures we’d need to do the same. All Westerville needed was 5000 signatures to place the repeal on the ballot. In Lakota, over 18,000 people voted against the last levy, so it shouldn’t be hard to collect our signatures if needed, it would just take a little effort, but it would be worth it. This means that even when school districts fail to listen to the voters there is a recourse that can be taken against them, and Westerville is going to vote in November not to pass a levy, but to remove one. The campaign for that during a presidential election will be fantastic, “would you like to save $205 per $100,000 of your property value? Vote to repeal the Westerville School Levy!” That would allow Westerville School District residence to spend $200 to $1000 more on Christmas presents for their loved ones this year instead of flushing that same money down the toilet for inflated union contracts negotiated under collective bargaining.

Locally Fairfield, Lebanon, Little Miami, and Forest Hills all recently passed levies that could be repealed in the same way as Westerville is doing, and this is a serious blow to the public sector labor unions in Ohio who are used to getting everything they want, including the kitchen sink. So even if the residents of Monroe find themselves suffering under yet another tax increase, they do have a recourse to remove that levy if it ever does pass. I would advise the people who worked the No Levy campaign in Monroe to keep track of all the people who make contact with them in support of the “NO VOTE,” because those names may be needed later when it comes time to repeal the Monroe School Levy.

The assumption of these public schools is that teachers are worth infinite amounts of money and that the schools are sacred to the development of our children, and neither is true. Teachers are not all worth the same amounts of money. Some are worth $65K per year, but most aren’t worth $45K per year. And administrators are not worth $90K to $100K per year. Some may be, but most aren’t. It is collective bargaining that drives up those costs and that has only been around since 1982, and it has bankrupted education in Ohio. It is foolish to throw more money at a broken system, and the system is broke if it produces children that can’t find India on a map, and costs more than $7,000 per pupil to operate. The whole system needs to be reset and that will never happen if communities allow themselves to be extorted by school boards and state officials who are afraid of their labor unions. The proper management of the education funding problems is for the unions to either take pay cuts or to dissolve all together with more competitive options being presented. The old way is not good for anybody, except the teacher and administrator who make more than $65K per year for only working 7.5 hours a day, 9 months out of the year while tax payers struggle to pay the bill of loyalty to their community schools.

A Criminal, a Liar, a Communist, and a Terrorist: Barack Obama Insults America

When President Obama stated on July 13th 2012 in his now infamous “you didn’t build that” speech, I was so infuriated that I couldn’t even write about it. I couldn’t wrap my mind around the audacity of his socialist utterances. Like many, I believe that Obama is an open communist behind closed doors, but the evidence was never so obvious as it was on that day. Obama declared to all of America that he was equal to the type of communism that America fought during the entire Cold War and was no less of a communist than Fidel Castro of the 1980s. I was so furious at the obviousness of Obama’s communism that I had to take a chill pill for a few weeks just to calm down. And I wasn’t the only one. Bill Whittle of PJ TV had similar thoughts as I did and as usual conveyed well his frustration and anger at this severally deranged American President in Barack Obama. Be sure to watch this video clip completely and pass it around.

As if the comments alone weren’t bad enough, Obama realizing that he wasn’t speaking to a crowd of welfare recipients, union workers, and general social miscreants, attempted to lie about what he was recorded saying to millions of people. It was obvious that Obama had gotten caught up in the moment when he was speaking to a crowd of blind supporters and didn’t think or care what the rest of America would think of his real, unfettered opinions. Being caught right out in the open, Obama attempted to do what he has done with virtually every issue in his 4 year presidency, he tried to blame someone else for twisting his words around on him which is really quite amazing.

Obama attempted to erase from the mind of America words that were openly broadcast to millions of people and replace them with a different idea. The audacity of his attempt says a lot about his level of integrity and definition of honesty. I can only imagine what Obama would attempt to twist out of the truth on issues that were well concealed from public view. Obama is clearly using the Saul Alinsky methods of manipulation to conceal his real intentions. These same methods are used by public education and other unionized organizations to manipulate the masses off the key topics of villainy which they openly commit.

In essence Obama and his attack dog Eric Holder of the DOJ have utilized the exact same methods of concealment to hide their involvement in ‘Fast and Furious’ which caused the murder of over 300 innocent human beings all in a quest to push more gun legislation. The timeline again is shown well by Bill Whittle at PJ TV and it cannot be ignored. These are criminals and they hide their crimes behind the polite benefit of doubt given by the American people.

The argument in the video is right. The crimes just over ‘Fast and Furious’ are every bit as dangerous and corrupt as Watergate, but they are concealed behind a veil of politeness, and orthodox politics created by extreme activists under the devious methods devised by Saul Alinsky. Obama is so certain of the effectiveness of his manipulation methods that he will lie about a situation even when millions of people heard exactly what he said and there is tape to review it again.

The followers of Saul Alinsky and all the other insurrection artists of the 20th century know that because of the expansion of government which umbrellas so many Americans, that they are conquering an already defeated people. When Obama stands in front of his fans who support him because they hope the president is going to give them some of his Obama money, he knows that the audience who was cheering him on did not have the wits about them to probe into the merit of his declarations, and he doesn’t care, because the goal of government expansion is to make the citizens fat, dumb, and happy. Obama and his gang of thugs that have come before him see the complacency that the population in general displays. It is not the more intelligent members of American society that is the lazy and politically uninterested. It’s the people who do not read the news but simply watch TV and play video games. It’s the type of people who do not read books, but will browse through a magazine to see what celebrities are sleeping with whom. In other words, they are not very sophisticated, and are therefore defenseless to see a lie when they hear it if the person presenting the information is smiling and wearing a suit representing authority. Their minds are simply too lazy to ask an inconvenient question, “is my president a criminal, a communist, or a domestic terrorist?” The answer might cause them to miss the next episode of “The X Factor.”

The audacity of Obama’s open lies displays that he expects there are more stupid people in America than intelligent ones because his programs and political philosophy have already implemented the destruction on more than 50% of the population of breeding stupidity. He knows the audience like the one he spoke to on July 13th did not have the capacity to think because not only did Obama and his politics rob the rich of their money to give to the masses of democracy in the form of mob rule, but he has robbed the poor of their very minds by making it so they don’t even have to think in order to get up in the morning. With such a complacent and lazy electorate, there are no minds to challenge a liar as he declares that socialism is the way of America and always has been.

The only success Obama has managed in his presidency of which the seeds were planted during the Clinton years was that extremism is now the law of the land, and people like me who expect truth, justice and the American way are considered the radicals. It is considered extreme to even question the criminality of a sitting president, which was the criminal intent of the progressive party all along. By putting Obama in office with his loose morality and welfare mentality he was led to the Oval Office by the very hand of evil involving crimes against mankind that were hidden in plain sight and beyond investigation. In this upside down world it is OK for Harry Reid to question the tax records of Mitt Romney but not OK to demand the birth certificate of Obama even though the one that The White House produced was a forgery. The latter are called “birthers” but when Reid does the same extremism against Romney, it is endorsed and accepted by all, because the minds of man are already defeated, and the criminals in government know it.

Obama does not care if there are people who see what he’s up to, because he knows through the power of democracy that if he can get the mob on his side, that there is no stopping him politically, because he has an army of dim-witted people who is growing with every new government program that will carry him like a pharaoh to the presidency. Never has such disrespect for the backbone of America ever been so evident than in the comments of July 13th 2012. Obama, the functioning communist, audaciously declared to the mob that he would steal on their behalf if all they did was vote in his favor. He pandered to them as if they were equals to the productive in society, but the real goal was to remove from them the guilt of their ineptness so that they would pass on those traits to a new generation of progressive youngsters who embrace open communism.

This situation is extremely serious, and if Obama does not pay for his crimes, our society will crumble. The mentality of his looting nature is dangerous, but even worse is his disregard for those who are truly intelligent. He knows the mob outnumbers the wise, and he is openly challenging his detractors. The intentions of those who put Obama in office are nearly complete. Their battle plan against America is obvious. But few have the courage or intelligence to challenge that plan. For myself, I do not acknowledge a criminal as my president, and if the law were allowed to work, I believe Obama would be convicted of many crimes. But we live in an age, and a land where more and more often President Obama leads a nation of the destitute to open looting of the rich for a cause of communism born in the mind of his childhood mentor——Frankie. And he and his fellow attackers no longer feel they need to hide it.

A terrorist is not just someone who straps bombs to themselves to blow people up.  A terrorist is anyone who uses fear to conceal the truth, and President Obama is certainly guilty of that.  Because the truth indicates that Obama is the worst president in the history of America and may very well be remembered among the emperors of Rome who were most tyrannical.
