Time to Let the Country Crash?
American Thinker, by Ebben Raves

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 11/15/2012 6:44:07 AM

"Let it crash!" "Give them what they want and they´ll see what happens!" "Surely, once the left´s programs are implemented and the economy crashes, people will come to their senses." Since the election, many on the right have echoed this meme. They are convinced that widespread poverty and lack of opportunity will bring a resurgence of the America many of them knew growing up. Grandma and Grandpa´s America. Perhaps these people forget that Roosevelt was re-elected three times during a depression that he helped prolong

No need to let it crash. Like the Titanic, the crash has already occurred, and though the band is still playing and people are still dancing, the ship is indeed going down. The only question is who´s going to survive.

I agree,let it happen. the country can´t keep going on lines of credit to fund foolish programs and ideas.

Look at how this socialite and husband lived well beyond their means and are millions in the hole. This can be extrapolated to the country´s debt.Student loans,FHA loans and pensions are well over a trillion in debt each. How long with tax increases keep all the going.

It is not "fair" to the American taxpayer to have to pay the President and the Senate when they have failed to pass a budget that is required by law.

Matter of fact, I would like to see a lawsuit claiming that the govt. can not collect taxes without a budget.

A crash is the only thing that will clarify everyone´s mind at the same time.

Let it come sooner rather than later, let´s get this over with so this country can right itself.

Selling apples on the corner will get everybody pulling in the same direction quicker than the back and forth political snipefest we have now.

This is how dictators take hold. This is exactly what Dumbo wants, A CRASH.. Riots, emergency tax increases, martial law. This is chapter 3 of Alinsky. In 3 weeks all your life savings will be gone. Think the absolute worst for the country , multiply by 3 and that is what Pelosi, Reid and Dumbo want. Be careful what you ask for!

Why do you think China and Russia have kept their tyrannies for so long? A bankrupt nation is easier to manage for a dictatorship. America succeeded in the Revolution, in part because we were a rich nation with a lot of raw wealth. What is so dangerous about Obama, is that if he succeeds in destroying this wealth, an armed and angry citizenry alone will not overthrow him. He has squirreled away billions for his war chests leaving us holding the bag. The Feds have millions of rounds of ammo themselves, and our most loyal troops are overseas fighting in useless military operations wasting their strength and isolated from events in their homeland.

We can NOT wait for a financial crash to wake up a lax citizenry. Likely, any financial pain will be reported as Republican obstructionism, as it has in the past and that crowd of kool-aid drinkers will readily lap it up. What ever we do must be done, here and now with an eye for changing Education and how someone qualifies as a voter.

I agree with the author. The populace feels entitled. Today´s entitled youth don´t want to work. They feel that the rich have an obligation to support the middle-class and the poor. If the country crashes, it will only fuel their argument for the government to save them from the evil rich right. But what they don´t realize is that the rich are the ones who make their miserable existence through their tax revenue. I read an article about the amount of revenue that the top 5% create and it was staggering. So what if the top 1% decide that they´re not going grow their companies to avoid paying higher taxes?

(Continued)

1. Education is number one. We must promote America and Civics from day one. We stopped this long implemented education because the Left complained it was ´indoctrination´. They then promptly stepped in and indoctrinated generations in their philosophy - which is the principle reason we are, where we are. Morality, responsibility, and success through hard work must be restored as gold standards of a renewed America.

2. I think no one who is accepting more from the government than they put in should be allowed to vote, unless they are in a high risk job - such as active military. You should only have a vote if you have skin in the game. If you fall into economic hardship, it would be a good reason to lift yourself up again, in order to have a say in your government.

3. We should have a requirement for a balanced budget, with taxes limited to a set percentage of the GDP. Government must stay within their means, and we would vote in part in how well they serve us. A greedy bunch that hordes the taxes for their private use wouldn´t last long.

4. We must define and refine what a Natural born citizen is. Regardless of what you think of the birther business, we need to get a handle on the ´Path to Citizenship´. Government Assistance should only be for U.S. citizens. Non-citizens should be legally permitted to seek help from private institutions, and work here, if they want, but only citizens should benefit from government aid in times of trouble. Only citizens should be permitted to vote or serve in government.

The crash will not convince the other half of the country that their choice was wrong. The Republicans could vote present for the next two years, let Pelosi, Reid and the won have it all and still get the blame because the MSM will make sure of it. They will rouse them up to the point of violence then all bets are off.

The left rely on scare tactics to promote their agenda. They must have an evil villain for the government to slay. It´s just like breast cancer. Don´t misunderstand me. I think cancer is terrible for anyone to have to endure. I have lost many friends and family members to its effects. But you don´t see the same kind of support from the left for heart disease because heart disease is curable even though heart disease kills 10 times the number of people each year than breast cancer. We´re the disease.

It´s not the country that needs to crash, it´s the federal government that does. I know many will think it´s the same thing and that´s the big problem, maybe the biggest problem. Each state is like it´s own smaller country bound together by the federal gov´t. The states are comprised of smaller local districts. Many of these are doing just fine. If the feds were off their backs the country could recover quickly and reclaim it´s purpose. I think this is what Zipp0 stands in the way of happening.

The GOP certainly has proven they don´t have a plan. So, if you´re expecting either the Democrats OR the Republicans to do something other than maintain THEIR favored status and taxpayer paid perks - you´re fooling yourself.

No more GOP for me - I´m changing my voter registration to Independent and don´t plan on voting straight Republican again. I´m joing the majority. I want my "free stuff" - and a mint julep...

Given all the forces against a real solution those in power are purposely crashing the system. They think they will be the ones to rebuild it...I think a revolution will result and those that caused this problem will be held to account just like in the French Revolution!

Several points:

The crash was baked into the cake when the Bush tax rates were extended only to the end of this year. Same with Obama´s assorted tax credits and Payroll Tax Holiday. Same with the Sequester. This is what a Democrat President and Congress passed. Obama campaigned on the Clinton tax rates and that is what is currently on the books.

If the tax rates go up on everyone to Clinton levels, then a lot more people will be taxed than are now currently taxed. Only those who pay taxes worry about size of government.

Sequestration will be cooked into the baseline. No more 8% increases in spending declared to be cuts.

Let the Dems propose compromise. If they are as silly as Obama and Reid´s, laugh. And remind them they passed the current plan. Then let the time run out.

The GOP can´t win. The Dems can certainly lose. Let The People experience a Worker Paradise.

Calling a Spade a ´Garden Implement´

American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman    Original Article

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran.

It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood.

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs.

Nothing better depicted Obama´s illegal tampering with the clear words of ObamaCare -- his announcement this week that he was delaying the employer mandate for medium-sized companies -- than Michael Ramirez´ brilliant cartoon showing the law as a blank page in which Obama had continually changed its words and meaning. Along similar lines, Charles Krauthammer observes: But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly.

In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama. Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees,

Barack Obama´s Constant State

Contradicting the faultless, albeit far-fetched image he has of himself, Barack Obama is a man harassed by truth. That´s why, judging from his inability to accept personal responsibility, Barack Obama must be living in a constant state of agitated cognitive dissonance. The late Leon Festinger is the social psychologist who proposed the theory of cognitive dissonance. According to Festinger, until the person suffering with perceptual disharmony can find a way to justify wrong actions and decisions, it´s impossible to achieve a calm mental state, especially when those wrong actions and decisions challenge the way the cognitively dissonant individual sees himself.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December
