How to stimulate America’s economy

6 Comments

Sent to us by a PPJ reader!

Sometime this year, we taxpayers  will again receive another ‘Economic Stimulus’  payment.

This is indeed a very exciting program, and I’ll explain it by  using a Q & A format:

Q. What is an ‘Economic Stimulus’ payment ?

A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.

Q.. Where will the government get this money ?

A. From taxpayers.

Q. So the government is giving me back my own money ?

A. Only a smidgen of it.

Q. What is the purpose of this payment ?

A. The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a  high-definition  TV set, thus stimulating the economy.

Q. But isn’t that stimulating the economy of  China ?

A. Shut up.

Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the U.S. economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:

* If you spend the stimulus money at Wal-Mart, the money will  go to  China or Sri Lanka .

* If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs.

* If you purchase a computer, it will go to India, Taiwan or  China .

* If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to  Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala .

* If you buy an efficient car, it will go to Japan or Korea .

* If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to  Taiwan.
* If you pay your credit cards off or buy stock, it will go  to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.
Instead, keep the money in America by:
1) Spending it at yard sales, or
2) Going to ball games, or
3) Spending it on prostitutes, or
4) Beer or
5) Tattoos.
(These are the only American businesses still operating in the  U.S. )
Conclusion:
Go to a ball game with a tattooed prostitute that you met at a yard  sale and drink beer all day!
No need to thank me, I’m just glad I could be of help!!

What Stimulus Money Did For Caterpiller- But at What Cost to The American Taxpayer?

Picture this.

A blustery day in  February 2009.

A President poised gracefully behind a podium, teleprompter at the ready, speaking to Americans about how one of the Nations top manufacturers had explained that because of the proposed Stimulus Package, Caterpillar would be re-hiring some of those 22,000 employees recently laid off.

“Yesterday, Jim, the head of Caterpillar, said that if Congress passes our plan, this company will be able to rehire some of the folks who were just laid off,” Obama said today in Peoria.” More

Please Mr. President. Please STOP “Helping” The U.S. Economy

QE2?

Lynn Swearingen (c) copyright 2010 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

For those of us who have been waiting for the “train” to leave the station on the United States Economy, I’ve got news for you. There is nothing barreling down the tracks waiting to hit the proverbial blockage on the tracks and explode our Economy into the largest Depression ever. Instead, QE2 is waiting at the docks “ready to sail”.

“Quantitative Easing” part deux (QE2) was first publicly bandied about in debate last month spurred by St. Louis Fed President James Bullard’s comments:

…who suggested the Fed may have to buy more Treasurys as he warned about Japan-style deflation. The idea gained momentum, but expectations for a quantitative easing move at this Fed meeting really took off after Friday’s surprisingly weak July employment report.

Actually the debates have been spurred by a paper written by Mr. Bullard titled Seven Faces of “The Peril” in which his comparison of the United States and Japanese economic “similarities and differences” dance around one another in squares and circles with fancy charts, analysis of Seven Case Studies and numerous esoteric comparisons which fill 24 pages of the pdf in a mind-numbing conflagration of confusion. The opening paragraph should advise one of this reality: More

Sovereignty Hypocrisy

2 Comments

I have recently come to suspect that the “sovereignty” being declared from the federal government by several states is a sham – a clever ruse designed to placate the people while their states actually prepare for the coming martial law.

In part, I have based this suspicion on the fact that, among those states declaring their supposed “sovereignty” have been several that have been busily passing new gun control laws that claim to “protect” their respective citizens from gun confiscations during martial law (a very telling statement in itself), while, at the same time, actually facilitating it.

But, there is yet more evidence that some of the same states declaring “sovereignty” from the federal government are otherwise cooperating with the federal government.

Take, for example, the unemployment benefits extended to the states by the new stimulus bill passed by the Obama administration. While there are five states (Alaska, Mississippi, Louisiana, South Carolina and Idaho) whose governors have said they will refuse the acceptance of those funds on principal, the remaining forty-five states have not done so. Among them is Oklahoma, the first state to issue a declaration of sovereignty. It has not only accepted those funds, but is already distributing them, as of February 28th.

While Mississippi’s governor is among those refusing the funds (and Mississippi is also one of the states declaring sovereignty), its SB2036, a law that supposedly prevents gun confiscations during martial law, actually facilitates the confiscation of guns by leaving it up to a police officer’s sole discretion. Considering what we know about cops having been trained to take our guns in recent years, I leave it to you to decide whether this Mississippi law does anything to protect Mississippi’s gun owners or not. Refusing the stimulus funds (at least for unemployment benefits, anyway – we don’t know what other funds Mississippi may or may not be accepting from the stimulus pie), while it may seem aligned with the purposes of declaring state sovereignty, is easily done if the long-term plan is for martial law – a situation in which those extended unemployment benefits will no doubt be revoked, anyway. But, preparing for martial law by hurriedly passing laws that help to implement it – as SB2036 actually does, despite the claims to the contrary, is a glaring contradiction of the entire purpose and principle of declaring state sovereignty, is it not?

As for Louisiana’s record, the Katrina debacle speaks volumes about their willingness to go along with federal plans for martial law – they’ve already done it, during the martial law practice run that was the response to Katrina, during which firearms were seized from the population of New Orleans, leaving law abiding citizens (many of whom were not affected by the flooding) without any means to protect themselves from looters for weeks.

Dear Sen. Klobuchar….Neil (the mad orator) has a few questions for you

Leave a comment

Should somebody lock me up soon?

Senator Klobuchar,                                                                                                                                                                                                                         2/11/09

I see that you voted for the monstrous spending bill “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009” yesterday & it is my understanding that e-verify was not allowed to be added to the bill. I am very disappointed, both with the dollar amount & that e-verify was not part of this bill. I have 6 very serious questions to ask:

1)      Why did the Senate (you) not require that e-verify be part of the final Senate version of this Stimulus Bill, when saving & creating jobs is the #1 priority at the present time?

2)      What was magical to you about meeting the $800 billion dollar figure required for this bill (why not the $400 billion level proposed by Senator McCain or why not use a trillion dollar figure)?

3)      Is it your belief that our government can spend our way out of this major economic meltdown?

4)      Do you believe that it is the long term goal of the Federal government to have all the “responsible” people in our Country pay the way/reward the greedy & irresponsible living here (to make them whole again – with no debt or losses)? Where the Govt. guarantees in good times or bad, no business small or large will ever fail again. Where every responsible or irresponsible, legal or illegal citizen in this Country is entitled to anything they want & our Government should find somebody or some group of people to pay for it.

5)      Do you think there is a “point of no return” on taxpayer bailout & stimulus money that our Federal Government is willing to spend (where our credit dries up globally & the U.S. dollar becomes totally worthless)?

6)      Is there a point in time, or a dollar amount where you will personally say “enough is enough, we just can’t keep piling all this debt onto our kids & grandkids? Where you actually break ranks with the President & your party & say that all we are really doing here is creating another bubble down the road for someone else to deal with?

I thank you in advance for taking my questions seriously; I look forward to your responses.

” All the unmistakable signs are there: the continued death of an American manufacturing economy which lost 3 million jobs in the Bush years alone; the first of a series of trillion dollar budget deficits in 2009; the continuation of unwinnable wars of colonialism and counterinsurgency in Iraq and Afghanistan that Mr. Stieglitz of the World Bank calculates will cost 3 trillion dollars at the unseen end of the tunnel; a prime-the-pump response to economic catastrophe that involves both the $750 billion bank bailout and Mr. Obama’s $800 billion in “stimulus”; an ongoing reliance upon foreign international borrowing and the printing of fiat money by the Fed to finance this smoke-and-mirrors game; the continued Balkanization of the United States courtesy of 20 million illegal aliens; and further cultural and moral malignancy metastasis, courtesy of the Jewish-dominated gay, abortion, and Hollywood constituencies presently infatuated with the Man from Kenya and Cook County.

     Ex-KGB analyst and Russian foreign ministry instructor, Igor Panarin, has painted his own prophetic picture of coming “change” in America by the year 2010, in an article posted recently in the Wall Street Journal. He predicts the coming breakup of the United States into four sectors, each dominated by a foreign power. Panarin’s thesis involves the same moral, political, and military analysis of the United States that I have proffered as an American paleoconservative. Even more ominously, the suggestion that 2010 is the year of prophetic fulfillment suggests that the good Russian professor has been reading Daniel’s account of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, or the Judean prophet’s proclamation of the end of Belshazzar’s reign and the Babylonian Empire.

     My prediction: some version of Igor Panarin’s portrait is about to be painted, and very soon.” (end excerpt)
