Government Stupidity – Gov’t insanity: You won’t believe whatthis former Obama economic advisor just said.

From Economic Policy Journal:

Greg Mankiw points to this Larry Summers comment on the Charlie Rose Show:

Never forget, never forget, and I think it’s very important for Democrats especially to remember this, that if Hitler had not come along, Franklin Roosevelt would have left office in 1941 with an unemployment rate in excess of 15 percent and an economic recovery strategy that had basically failed.

Economist Robert Higgs has ripped apart the notion that war is good for an economy. And in particular, he has focused on World War II. On release of Higgs’ book, Depression, War, and Cold War: Challenging the Myths of Conflict and Prosperity, the publisher wrote:

[Higgs] provides clear evidence FDR’’ New Deal actually prolonged the Great Depression and that World War II did nothing to create prosperity…

Go to the site and read the entire article.  This is an eye opener.  Sometimes I am just too upset to read an article all at once and this was one of those times.  BB

Hi Brenda.

Evidently you don’t read your email. I’ve sent 3 emails to the address you gave me and no response. Boo-Hoo!

Now, on to more serious business. I have to say; I think this guy is right on. I actually believe Obama will get re-elected and this scares the hell out of me. I watched Fox last night and Karl Rove was a guest. He said Obama has done really well raising money so far, but that he won’t get to his target of $1 Billion dollars. I disagree with Karl. No one mentions it, and she’s been real quit since quitting her show, but there is the “Oprah Factor”. So, don’t think he won’t get his Billion dollars.

Now, about a week ago, I read an article on line saying that “Obama” already passed, by executive order, a Bill giving amnesty to the illegals. That was actually on a Wednesday, I think 2 weeks ago. I have watched and no one in the media has even mentioned it. So, I’m not sure if it’s true or not. But it will give citizenship to 20 Million Mexicans. They will vote for Obama. So, if he didn’t do it yet, he will do it to give them enough time to register to vote, you can be sure of that.

As for who else will vote for him, well this guy is right again. The Unions, teachers, government workers, the Chrysler, and GM auto workers as least, and then you have everyone who is registered Democrat. It’s not looking good for the rest of us.

The Republicans have not done what they promised, which was to either vote the Obama Health Care bill out or vote to not fund it. This is very scary. I’m not a happy American at all. I know we should try to do something about this besides talking, which is all the Republicans do in Congress, but I don’t think the general public gets it yet.

They have allowed one by one, Obama to dismantle the mining industry, buy into the auto industry, shut down the oil industry in the Gulf and in the country. And if you think I would eat any fish caught in the Gulf, you are crazy. I hate to say it but he closed them down too. He’s pushed ethanol, and electric cars, yet there are no stations across the country to charge up your car. It just won’t happen soon, and there won’t be jobs in that industry, to increase employment in a full blown economic recovery. It’s not going to happen.

As for the Oil industry does anyone realize that we use corn to make ethanol? This corn is the corn farmers used to raise for feed for cattle. Now, the ethanol industry orders the corn crop from the farmers before it’s even planted, which takes away from our dinner table. Why, you might ask. Well, if there isn’t enough feed for the pigs, cattle and chickens, because it is increasingly being used for ethanol then we will raise less cattle (hamburger, steaks, milk, cheese), pigs (bacon, ham) and chickens (chicken, eggs) etc. There goes our food supply, and Jobs again to foriegn countries as imports. Not to mention the fact that, no country in the world produces a better, safer, more regulated disease free crop than America. No one raises more cattle, chickens, pigs, soybeans (sometimes Brazil beats us or is very close), corn or wheat, and Obama has sold this industry down the river.

Obama never lied. He ran on “CHANGE” and were getting it. But will we live thru it???

Really, the stupidity of the Americans (the Republicans, and Conservatives) who have not done enough, have not stood up to their Representative enough, who have not voted these Congressmen out of office who have been there for 30 or 40 years are at fault. So, they can talk and they can complain, but I’m tired of it all.

When the Tea Party got people into office we thought things would change, but the “Good Ole” guys network, like Boehner and others appointed themselves to Chair all the committees before the new Tea Party people were sworn in. Why? So business could continue as usual. And as you can see it has.

I’m tired of the Dems blaming the Republicans for taking so long to get this new Bill passed Cap and Trade and Deficit reduction. This should have been done when they were in the majority, but they were too involved in doing Obama’s bidding on the Health Care Bill to worry about it. Now, they blame the Republicans, when they are the ones that should have passed the Bill.

I’m writing too much, and I’m sorry, but I’m mad. We need a National referendum on every state Ballot and ASAP, next election, to limit to 2 terms the length of time Congressmen can serve.

But even more importantly, we need to cut them off from a lifetime of salaried checks after they have retired. If these incompetents were on Social Security like the rest of us, believe me it would never get any cuts, and it would be solvent. It’s time these self-absorbed incompetents are removed from office and we pass a Bill to change their lifestyles, by giving them SS checks instead of Pensions. They certainly do not deserve to live life in a style that is better than the people who send them to Congress to represent them. The Cuts should start at their retirement checks, instead of hitting Middle America again and again. Let’s face it out of everyone still working in this country, Congress is the least deserving to hold on to their jobs for a life-time, and a pay day that never quits.
They, when you think about it, have not done their jobs, so why the lifetime salary?

Okay, I’m done for now, because I think I might take up more than one page on your site. I’m so sorry. ss
