This morning I was on with Steve Davis of Lifestyles Unlimited

This morning I was on the syndicated show, Lifestyles Unlimited, with Steve Davis, talking about how Americans must become business savvy to survive the multifaceted attack on our economy.

In particular, I pointed out how the Left’s wishlist includes:

  • massive increases in taxes ($3,800 per household just in 2013)
  • draconian federal regulations primarily through an EPA that now views its goals as encompassing “social” justice
  • Obamacare that is already causing businesses to fire employees, reduce their hours (so they are not full time) all to lessen the financial burden on the business
  • continued demonization of business and profit
  • continued runaway litigation against businesses for hang nails and spilled coffee in the lap

In this environment, the American economy will necessarily suffer.

The solution, in Steve’s view, is to become an economy of one and develop passive income sufficient to pay your necessary bills. His show leads the way…

The Rich: Taxes Paid, Polls, and Reality

A dose of reality on Obama’s claim that the rich don’t pay their “fair” share:

What standard of fairness dictates that the top 10 percent of income earners pay 71 percent of the federal income tax burden while 47 percent of Americans pay absolutely nothing?

This article destroys the argument with facts. It’s short enough to read and memorize. Highly recommended!

Does China have more high-tech stuff that the USA?

There was a full moon last night and I was standing outside Dan’s Tavern admiring it when I got into a brief conversation with a 20-something lady. Somehow the conversation got into technology, and I mentioned that no other nation has put a person on the Moon. The young lady asked why, and I said, “because no one else has the technology.”

She seemed flummoxed, thought for a second, put a finger to her chin, and said, “I thought China had more technology that us.”

If this doesn’t terrify you, you are not paying attention.

What in the heck are we teaching in schools?

Don’t answer that. I know. It was Marxism back in the 70s and it has not changed. Moreover, a friend who was with me added, “And we teach them that everyone is equal, and that we [meaning the USA] are not exceptional.”

And that made me recall the comment that our illustrious leader said about “American Exceptionalism.” He said he believes in it just as the Greeks believe in Greek Exceptionalism, and the French, and the English…

Spoken as a good Marxist.

Coming through your schools. Which reminds me of this wonderful video by Starship.
