Like swans of legend, American entrepreneurs sing their final, beautiful song before they just fade away.

When everyone who is employed works for the state or federal government, we’ll all likely be as impoverished as the citizens of the old Soviet Union. Remember the Soviets standing in long lines, with falling snow, to buy what they could from a dwindling short supply of consumer goods, goods they could barely afford, like two left boots, both of the wrong sizes?

Having too many people working for the government is the antithesis of prosperity. And it’s estimated that for every “green” job the government creates, they’ll eliminate 2.2 jobs from the real world of private enterprise, at a cost of about $700,000.00 a piece.

Government employees seem to concentrate on negatives: They stop people, impoverish people, tax people, poison people, imprison people, kill people, torture people, or bomb civilizations into rubble. Governments create little of a positive nature, least of all their governmental programs.

Sophists-historians-academics say, without government programs there would never have been an American middle-class. How wrong can people be? Well, these fellows push the limits, when they repeat the doctrines so widely promulgated by America’s academic class. They are  the living embodiments of how a people can be very insightful and yet so blind at the same time.

It was not government or large corporations, but the American entrepreneur who built our middle-class, in spite of governmental programs. At last, however, the federal government eliminated America’s small businessmen, while rewarding the oligarchs of the Banking Cartel. And there went our middle-class, too burdened were they with  governmental programs, taxes, laws, and regulations. More

Wow, What a Guy …

The Holy Bible has less than 1,300 pages. But, how would you like to be tasked with having to read all those pages, until you understood them, in a month, a week, or a day, while having what some say is the most difficult job in the world?

President Obama did something far more heroic than that. He carefully read twice that many pages, and all of it was in some of the most poorly written, most abstruse legalese imaginable. It was the 2,700, plus, pages of the Healthcare “Reform” bill, commonly called Obamacare; and since this bill was always changing, add another 300 pages poor Obama had to read. More
