An Ode to Entrepreneurs:Middle-class? Long Gone!

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

Congressman Waxman Knows No Fear

California Democratic Congressman Henry Waxman is determined to deal with the really big problem facing Americans, today: It’s major league ballplayers, who chew or dip tobacco during ball games. 

And while Waxman may be one of the homeliest guys in congress (Pelosi, Boxer, Feinstein, Levin, Specter, Frank, and Lieberman notwithstanding), the man is all raw courage.

Like a hard nosed middle linebacker, Waxman is tackling a problem of enormous proportions: It’s baseball players who honor the century old American tradition of playing ball with a chew in one one of their cheeks.

The prospect of dropping atomic bombs on the largely defenseless nation of Iran is too small a problem for the diligent Waxman to concern himself with, as was the greatest financial heist in recorded history, known as the banker bail-out bill, which Mr. Waxman merely voted for.

Vaccines that give our children autism is child’s play for Waxman; instead, he’s going after the really big game – our major league ball-players. As I’ve said, the man knows no fear.

Don’t talk to Waxman about Americans who have lost their homes, cars, savings, and jobs, those are problems best left to those without the courage of a Henry Waxman. More
