Progressive Goose Dung
Progressive Goose Dung
Nobody’s Opinion: I’m reading James Carville’s “Had Enough?” this week, and have to admit, he is a clever man. He might have been the real reason the Democratic Party has been so successful in the last decade, because he can spin logic almost as well as a Ted Bundy.
But halfway into the book I came to a part that really was one of the most “progressive” ideas that any man with a bald head ever came up with. He calls it, “A new idea for growth tomorrow-American Stakeholder Accounts.”
Basically he says that progressives (that’s all you comrades out there) need to start owning houses, land, business, savings…sounds good so far. Sounds like every conservative’s dreams. With me so far? So he introduces a program called “asset building”
That’s how he spins it, that’s how he plans to sell it. Well, we’ll all go for that. Who doesn’t want to build their “assets?”
The catch is, the way we will build our assets is by federal programs which take the “assets” in taxes from one person and gives it to another.
Carville explains how the G.I. bill, which gives a G.I. an education or a first home in exchange for service, is an “asset” builder. He forgets that a soldier actually works for that “asset” and it is well deserved.
Jimmy knows you’re with him so far. He knows every patriot respects our soldiers. Then he takes that little nookie and ties it into the rest, thinking you are going to go along with his program because he drew such an emotional parallel.
We should have more programs like this because they “equalized the distribution of wealth in America." That’s their (his progressive party’s) goal he said, and progressives should introduce to America the idea of the American Stakeholder Accounts.
You got to love this guy. What he is suggesting is basically communism, but he puts the word American in the title and it becomes a way to get “assets” for the poor.
What he wants to do is give each baby born in America, including illegal immigrants who come here just to give birth, $6,000 of your hard earned money up front. This would give every child a “ticket” he says to the middle classes.
I don’t know about you, but $6,000 dollars would hardly pay your gas bills for a year, let alone get you into the middle class.
I can just see these “tickets” being held by the government for twenty years until junior is 21, in some nice reserved account much like Social Security, which Congress will rob, just like they robbed Social Security and the Patent Office, and by the time the kid is 21, it will not be there.
Then they will be going on TV to say, sorry folks, there is just not going to be enough to give every one we promised their $6,000. Better start saving.
What---do you actually think they are going to give the parent the money to hold for the child? NO…they will keep it in an account earning interest for them.
In the pure sense of the word, it would be communism if it actually came back to you as redistributed wealth. But more than likely it will go to some African dying of aids, or into one of their yearly pay raises, or a new Department of Stakeholder Accounts. It’s just another clever way for the Congress to get their hands on more money.
Frankly, I don’t like anyone calling me a progressive. It’s what the communists have always called themselves, and I’m insulted that a man in America wants communism and thinks you’re so greedy you’ll take that $6,000. They will tell you it’s taken out of the rich man’s pay. Remember, this man was one of the Clinton’s butt-boys, and I’ve been telling you they are in line with the communists.
Clinton used “progressive” all through that boring book of his. They know that most people today have no idea that they are making you think that all their wonderful ideas are “new” and “unique” and going forward into the future…to infinity and beyond!
Don’t buy it. That word has been used to manipulate the masses since Karl Marx decided he didn’t like England.
And speaking of progressive England, there was an old superstition that if you rubbed goose dung into a bald man’s head, his hair would grow.
That’s pretty much what comes out of James' mouth…progressive goose dung.
Nobody’s Perfect: It was quietly reported today that all the money donated by other countries was lost. No one knows where it went. But I’m sure they’ll just say, “Hey, nobody’s perfect.” and that will be the end of it.
Nobody Knows; I thought when Justice O’Connor left the Supreme Court she was going to retire. God knows she is old enough. But no---we read today that she is getting a job as honorary Chancellor of William and Mary College. She will be pleading for young minds to go into public service and build bridges. What nobody knows is when did she become a progressive? Yes, they need as many progressive promoters as they can get. Even if they are too old to remember what the word means.
See you on Sunday…
