Our long running trade deficits are the evidence of the outward flow of the previously accumulate wealth of our nation even as our government policies assure it will not be replaced with wealth derived from domestic exploration of our natural resources and their smoke stack production into consumer goods. Our use of debt and deficits to artificially sustain retail purchases, more and more of which are produced outside this country, is evidence of pledging future (and ever declining) wealth production to maintain the illusion that we are not destitute and further assures us and our posterity an ever declining standard of living, steadily moving us toward a national economic collapse. In our politically correct world, we are choosing to ignore from where the wealth in a nation actually originates which is in production of raw materials all the way through to marketable products. Paul Krugman is a highly credentialed wishful thinking economic nincompoop.

It's Our Turn

Is there any precedent for requiring a President and his advisers to register as enemies of the Nation?
You have to admire the good work that Obama/Clinton/Kerry have done over the past 5 and a half years to restore US power, respect, and influence to keep a lid on the aggressive nature of our enemies out of respect for and fear of our power. It is amazing what can be done by showing you are more than willing to betray allies and appease enemies. The world is in turmoil, threatening wars, and active wars at every flash point. Good job Obama.
So, we have tipped past the 50% mark? Who you going to vote for? The guy who will assure you he will continue to feed you or the guy who says the cure to the problem is to stop feeding you and see that you go to work when the system is set to have no work? The rational answer to that says we are fast and surely on our way out as a Nation able to sustain itself. It has been a good ride, but keep your powder dry.

Mass Casualties in Obama's War on War

Sorry friend, but it was people just like you that assured that WWII would result in 20,000,000 deaths because they didn't have the balls to confront the evil when it would have cost far less. I fully expect Obama and those of your ilk to assure us that we will have peace in our times by capitulating to that evil. Liberals never learn from history, guaranteeing that it will be repeated. No wonder rational people hate them. Freedom isn't free and becomes far more expensive when Liberals are involved.
Good old just Jesse brought back a few gallon jugs of some fresh run slightly cloudy Kentucky Lightening...no aging required. Yep, they still do it. Rot gut stuff that you cease to worry about after the 2nd glass mixed with Coca-Cola. Good stuff to have with you at all times...you can run your car on it if you run out of gas. That way you not only avoid the Federal Tax on Alcohol but the Fed and State Tax on road fuel tax. Just keep in mind that any shortage you might encounter is not market driven, but is artificially induced by the Feds.
golidlocks you said Obamacare was a conservative idea…Yeah..it was a bad idea thrown against the wall and didn’t stick. It never went anywhere because it was….well… a totally unconstitutional bad idea. It took an idiot and abusive Progressive President with an idiot and abusive Progressive Democrat Congress to resurrect it from the dust bin of history where intelligent people had consigned it two decades earlier, to shove it down the throats of an unwilling populace. And, now the perpetrators are stupid enough to say “It was a conservative idea” as if they had nothing to do with shoving, what they adopted as their own becoming a chunk of Democrat Excrement, down the throats of the People. Intellectually dishonest and disingenuous bold faced lying worthless hacks that they are. goldilocks you are their poster child.
Why now would any sane person tell their doctor they have a gun in the house? The doctors no longer work for the patient, they work for and are representatives of the Federal Government regardless if they want to be or not.
Interesting that the defense of Obama is only in the extent of his corruption and not assertions of a total lack of his corruption.
In no nation whose people are actually processed of individual freedom and liberty would a government use the power of the State to coerce its citizens through force of law to make such gut wrenching choices. Freedom to make the economic choices each believes to be in their own best interest within a free market with the freedom to respond with products that meet customer needs and demand are part and parcel of being a free people. It is not a free market when businesses cannot respond to their customers declared needs with products that satisfy those needs, but must instead offer only those products designed and approved by government that serve government’s ends, not the customer’s needs. Call it what it is: It is the classic Fascist Control Model of allowing privately owned businesses, but allowing access to the government controlled market for only those businesses which are managed per government dictates that further the government’s goal which in this case is a Socialist redistribution of wealth with the businesses acting as their agents in that redistribution. Mussolini would have smiled at the method of control and Marx would have agreed with the goal. The government chains around our ankles are getting shorter even as their weight is getting heavier.
