Symptoms in America
Posted by Jeff Id on March 13, 2010
I’m back from the trade shows and fully exhausted. This time I was in St. Louis during a time when Barack Hussein visited. I’m told he discussed health care and there were dueling protests between two distinctly different classes of individual on either side of the street. St. Louis is not in good condition by the way, we were in the nice part of town and it was frightening to say the least.
Anyway, this is a political commentary and not a good one so if you don’t like my conservative vent’s — sorry – don’t read it. I will be working on temperature data tomorrow today now but I learned something this week and it needs to be said by someone. First, there is a definite but slight recovery in in industry at this moment. Good news.
The second, is that industry is absolutely angry at what BHO and the extremists in charge are doing. Now understand, these include rank and file union and non-union workers, equipment builders, sales people, engineers, corporate heads and owners alike. The warriors of capitalism who provide and feed the world. This IS your food, it IS the funding which drives your banking jobs, health care and the rest. These are the people who know what it takes to get a job done, how to build a power line, what is required to move product, plumb a building, fill a pothole, how proper equipment is made.
They are universally afraid, and have learned a lesson from this economy which is unstated in media.
Recently the Tea Party movement has been marginalized by the MSM, however the extreme political hacks of the MSM haven’t figured out what the movement is OR why they have lost nearly all their viewers. The point is that the ‘tea party’ movement is not a group, it is a symptom. They don’t need a new party to divide them as the media is trying to sell. They are America, and the politicians had better start listening.
The same industry which has powered the world has been pushed right to its limit by both the wall street Republican and somewhat more culpable Democrat power brokers. It’s at the brink of collapse and there is a palpable fear in industry. We are right at the edge of loosing America. It’s far closer than you think, and these bankers and socialists owe humanity a greater debt for their blatant corruption than any humans have ever owed to a population. I write that in the face of mass murders of history which defy any concept of imagination, because these corrupt people have nearly destroyed, and are STILL working hard to destroy, the only bastion of freedom on Earth. The only hope for long term success for humanity. If you think this will not, in time, translate into massive widespread poverty, you and I disagree, and you are not paying attention.
Despite what our wonderful friends around the world have, America used to be, and in many ways still is the most free. Despite what the Euromedia would tell you, it’s no coincidence that the most free country is the most wealthy. I won’t get into the sophist arguments they make. The statistical odds that the freest country was accidentally the wealthiest, as our schools and media have convinced the younger generation, are astronomically low. When you consider the politics of other leading countries, the odds are even more extreme, freedom and capitalism lead to success. No, no, some of you technical types say. We need a balance of regulation and freedom, you are of course right, but the balance was tipped many, many years ago. It takes a long time in business and government for corruption and control to lead to destruction – there is a time lag longer than slow witted voters can realize. Some of you point out an occasional socialist country which has good sounding personal incomes, yet miss the fact that the people can’t spend it because of massive taxation and that they make their money selling something to freer countries which are the primary customers. That whole complex line of argument pushing socialist utopia’s, is bull.
The industrial utility companies in America are working for ‘green’ solutions to the brink of their abilities, but their resources have been pushed to the limit. They cannot get loans from banks anymore because the taxpayer stolen ‘stimulus money’ was given as payoffs to unions and 501’s actively working in the wrong directions. Very few loan’s and grants are given for “green” whatever, so companies work with cash only. Industry wide, the layoffs have been massive, even in surviving stronger companies. Hybrid trucks are junk and the companies don’t have the technology to do more, they don’t have the finances to invest more because of the massive disturbance of new regulation combined with the economic collapse. They ARE at their limit. Very little money is being spent on true development, while much is spent on advertising non-functional green solutions. The power brokers know their policies have this dampening effect on true result because they talk to business, yet small minded people in universities and government labs, fully isolated from realities of business, advocate for it. What’s more, the inner city minorities, who have long been on government money without recognition of the trap, have fully bought into it.
If stability of regulation is not offered to industry, we will crush the good companies which have given us (and the whole damn world) this luxurious lifestyle. Of course stability requires a retraction or at the very least, dramatically slowed implementation of the green push (which will probably not come).
The situation in America is so insane that media will advertise numbers like 1 in 4 children in America don’t know where their next meal is coming from, at the exact same time that the president’s wife is advertising for her battle against fat children campaign. Both claims are lies, I’ve never met a starving kid here in my 41 years, and Obama’s program is simply expanding a union. A modified quote which has bearing and which all the actually fat yet somehow starving Americans should remember:
— It was exactly that pattern, people lived as usual; then “tomorrow there was war” (a famous Russian movie).
Sudden loss of food, income and quality of life doesn’t happen rarely people, it happens regularly. Sure there is not always a war, but sometimes there is.
Compared to history, our recent times have been blessed more than any previous. If you consider that, it would be astoundingly foolish to expect our situation to NOT collapse and mass starvation and poverty to NOT happen at some point. Our only tiny chance is stability of regulation achieved through minimal manipulation by power brokers, rapid change is the enemy of prosperity. We need to back away from the two footed jump into mass socialism and the false ‘green’ living. If you care about your children at all, we must allow industry to build, hire, profit. If it’s done, they will again be able to focus on improved technology instead of false green solutions.
It all means that we need the opposite of what our government is doing, and you should understand — the government power brokers know it. They know they are doing the opposite of what is needed for us, and you should be asking, why would they do that?
Industry hates the green push, at the same time they are attempting to embrace it. They fear what is coming, it was palpable at the trade shows, and view the whole situation in our now dictator-style government as a disaster. They know that passing the socialist act for America (aka health care reform) is a massive power-grabbing cost-adding weapon against freedom.
From my perspective, it is as as dangerous and foolish a weapon as anything ever invented, but launch it they will, if they are allowed.
