Our Incredible Shrinking Workforce

October 31, 2013

At least more are recognizing our growing problem … William Galston: Unless men re-enter the job market, prospects for vigorous growth in the labor force are dim.

Participation in the workforce is falling, the pace of job creation is anemic, and long-term unemployment remains stubbornly high. Many newly created jobs pay less than those that disappeared during the Great Recession, so real wages are stagnating, and median household income is no higher than it was a quarter of a century ago.

Jobs, Today’s Recycled Gibberish

May 9, 2013

Recount the billions of dollars wasted on this … Wasn’t the porkulus originally about $9oo Billion, and for what?

obama-unemployment

What did we get for the money other than some bankrupt carcuses of dead companies littering the landscape.

All hat no cattle… In fact he no longer even talks a good game, it’s just recycled gibberish.

I almost feel sorry for the Obama Administration’s spin doctors. Every month, they probably wait for the unemployment numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics with the same level of excitement that people on death row wait for their execution date.

This has been going on for a while and today’s new data is another good example. As this chart indicates, the White House promised that the unemployment rate today would be almost down to 5 percent if we enacted the so-called stimulus back in 2009. Instead, the new numbers show that the jobless rate is 7.9 – almost 3.0 percentage points higher.

I enjoy using this chart to indict Obamanomics, in part because it’s a two-fer. I get to criticize the Administration’s overall record, and I simultaneously get to take a jab at Keynesian spending schemes.

What’s not to love?

Compare to other modern recessions …

Fed Chairmen Discovers Limits To Monetary Policy at Hearings the Past Week/

July 20, 2012

Decides to dress up … for the occasion.

Fed Chair Bernanke paints gloomy economic outlook — Congress, Fed pass on leadership

All they have left is their Keynesian theories and printing more money. You know, just add digits to banks account.s You can do we, the people won’t know.

Maybe we should cut taxes and regulations, get the economy prodicng again? You know, capitalism. Works every time it’s tried.


This is Just Funny, The Keynesians Last Stand: Senate Battles Over Business Tax Cuts

July 13, 2012

After the biggest TAX in world history, so far at least, now they are worried that they broke the economy? I think I killed the pup.

Keynesians think your money is their money, you work for them. And in the bargain they parcel out to you what they think you should get out of your work. Who is John Galt? Free men don’t work for government. No matter what Animal Spirits says, even Obama cannot change that fact. Although he is trying mightly right now. Did he ever think his flawed policies are causing our economy to sink? Or is it all by plan?

Punish America for his father’s dreams? That’s what he says in his autobiography, The Dreams FROM My Father. He is an anti-colonialist, read his book, do the vetting you though the lamestream was supposed to do. In fact, the lamestream has their very own Constitutional Amendment and comes with responsibility to protect the republic … Then they chose sides.

Like they did with FDR, and his nuts Alphabet Soup of programs, our Republic was saved by FDR’s death. The Alphabet Soup was dumped inn the river of history.

In 2012, you will have to work until month seven, that’s 7/12 in case your math is rusty, before you can declare the money you make and work for is yours. Half of what you work for, goes too government for redistribution to their freinds or voters. Our country will not last under these conditions.

Like Reagan said … “Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so.”

Keynesians wonder why it doesn’t work. Americans Will Work Over 7 Months to Pay for all Govt Spending in ’12…

(CNSNews.com) – This year, Americans have to work until July 15 to pay for the burden of government, more than six months.

In a new report,  Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) has calculated that Americans will spend a total of 197 days toiling to pay for the cost of government.

“Cost of Government Day is the date of the calendar year on which the average American worker has earned enough gross income to pay off his or her share of the spending and regulatory burden imposed by government at the federal, state and local levels,” reads the report.

The report, Cost of Government Day, shows that Americans will work 88 days to pay for federal spending; 40 days for state and local spending; and 69 days for total regulatory costs.

“From a different perspective, the cost of government makes up 54.0 percent of annual gross domestic product (GDP),” reads the report. “What’s more, the largest tax hike in the nation’s history is scheduled to take place at the end of 2012 unless Congress acts to protect taxpayers. If this tax increase is allowed to hit, COGD [Cost of Government Day] could permanently be pushed back into August and beyond.”

Either America is going to tip over, like Guam was supposed to do, or it will right itself, like after FDR they did, or the end is in sight. Free Market economy’s under the government’s jack boot, do not work.

You will not work for government, no matter what they say. It’s as simple as that.

Who is John Galt?

Watch the movie, it’s informative.


You Wonder Where The Black Jobs Went? Obama Needs The Illegals To Vote

July 11, 2012

There is enough evidence what is being done now to blacks and our justice department is doing it. Every Illegal who comes here does so for a job. To try and better themselves and their families. Same with blacks. But they are all in the same labor group, vying for the same jobs.

What’s the message here?

Obama’s re-elect strategy assumes the blacks will automatically vote for him, but he needs more voters. Think Hugo Chavez, and the way he runs the poor around for their votes. Then think Obama. You might say a US President wouldn’t do this, Mao type electioneering? Hah, they wouldn’t if they were honorable people of character. But he has no character?

Ever wonder why Obama looks right into the camera and lies to you? Simple he isn’t talking to you, but others — His voters. He knows they will. He knows they buy the lies — without question. Hey they went for the Obama stash, free gas, free kitchen thingy didn’t they? I wonder, did anyone ever get anything free? At what cost?

What’s setting off the panic in Obama? Easy, Gallup Daily: Obama Job Approval. And you have to ask yourself, is even that a lie? With the sample heavily weighted Democrat, the allusion that they are the majority party, still works, for now.

I am reading the White House recommended book “Animal Spirits.” “Animal spirits” is the term John Maynard Keynes used in his 1936 book The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money to describe emotions which influence human behavior and can be measured in terms of consumer confidence. Trust is also included or produced by “animal spirits”. Several articles and at least two books with a focus on “animal spirits” were published in 2008 and 2009 as a part of the Keynesian resurgence. You wouldn’t want the people to know, besides how many would actually understand the Jedi mine games they are playing on you now. Here is a book to read, if you think you can comprehend … It’s great liberal read. “The Little Blue Book”. No not the Maoists “The Little Red Book” … Mao killed tens of millions of unarmed peasants, when he took over China.

For instance, FDR was a huge Keynes man. The original spend yourself to prosperity. Di that work? Did FDR succeed, was the Great Depression actually fixed by WWII, and FDR’s death? Because FDR sure didn’t fix anything.

Books are your friend. It tells what others are doing while they try and do it, mostly to you.


Beware The Animal Spirit: “The Cult Of Personality” That Obama Is Building For Himself

July 9, 2012

“The Cult of Personality”. Ever wonder why the polls always seem to say to you, yeah but everybody likes Obama … now we face that problem head on.

Do you remember when Obama first took office? And he had this book list of recommended readings? Recommended reading, was a new book by the economists George Akerlof and Robert Shiller called “Animal Spirits: How Human Psychology Drives The Economy, and Why It Matters For Global Capitalism.”  (“A White House Seized by the Animal Spirits,” TIME.)

You are being programmed, how do you deprogram the duped. They are trying to make our culture based on “cult of personality”. The Hugo Chavez way to total destruction. And this election is the whole ballgame for America.

Why does Communism outlast Fascism? Fascism is all about the dictator. He dies, and kaput. Communism is about the illusion that it’s all about the people. And that is what is scary about Obama. He is trying his best to be the next American Hugo Chavez. “The Cult of Personality” That’s what Obama’s people are trying to do, to you.

But telling the lie long enough … Audio: FCC’s Diversity Czar: ‘White People’ Need to be Forced to ‘Step Down’ ‘So Someone Else Can Have Power’.

The incestuous lust of Communists for control over the people. Only the truth should matter to you. You have to give up on “the cult of personality.” That just leads to ruin. Remember Hitler, the king of the cult of personality. And now the modern day Hugo Chavez. And now Obama.

And in his tome, Prologue to a Farce: Communication and Democracy in America, Lloyd had this to say about the First Amendment:

“It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press.  This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies.

“[T]he purpose of free speech is warped to protect global corporations and block rules that would promote democratic governance.”

Nice, eh?

Obama’s Czar Mark Lloyd’s FCC ‘Diversity’ Chief – His Take on Free Speech … And Lloyd’s rather disturbing perspective on Venezuelan Communist dictator Hugo Chavez’s “incredible…democratic revolution.” To go with Lloyd’s bizarre admiration for the thuggishly fascistic manner in which “Chavez began to take very seriously the media in his country.”

Now the Venezuelan media has become just a few State run channels, as the principals in the former media companies have all died, unexpectedly. And these reaming State run, State controlled, companies were waiting with baited breath for the near dead Chavez to return.

But watch this video below, and think …

OK you ask, but what about “The Animal Spirit”? It’s manipulating people by manipulating their Animal Spirit. Harnessing our animal spirits to serve the greater good. (Don’t we harness horses?) Required reading in the Obama White House.

Animal spirits” is the term John Maynard Keynes (His ideas are the basis for the school of thought known as Keynesian economics, as well as its various offshoots, FDR was a Keynesian economics believer.) used in his 1936 book The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money to describe emotions which influence human behavior and can be measured in terms of consumer confidence. Trust is also included or produced by “animal spirits”. Several articles and at least two books with a focus on “animal spirits” were published in 2008 and 2009 as a part of the Keynesian resurgence.

“The colourful name that Keynes gave to one of the essential ingredients of economic prosperity: confidence. According to Keynes, animal spirits are a particular sort of confidence, ‘naive optimism.’ He meant this in the sense that, for entrepreneurs in particular, ‘the thought of ultimate loss which often overtakes pioneers, as experience undoubtedly tells us and them, is put aside as a healthy man puts aside the expectation of death.'”

The original passage by Keynes reads:

Even apart from the instability due to speculation, there is the instability due to the characteristic of human nature that a large proportion of our positive activities depend on spontaneous optimism rather than mathematical expectations, whether moral or hedonistic or economic. Most, probably, of our decisions to do something positive, the full consequences of which will be drawn out over many days to come, can only be taken as the result of animal spirits – a spontaneous urge to action rather than inaction, and not as the outcome of a weighted average of quantitative benefits multiplied by quantitative probabilities.

Keynes seems to be referencing David Hume’s term for spontaneous motivation. The term itself is drawn from the Latin spiritus animales which may be interpreted as the spirit (or fluid) that drives human thought, feeling and action.

Liberals are always trying to figure out how to control people. This their latest new-old theory.


Keynesianism & Eugenics

May 25, 2012

“The theory of output as a whole, which is what The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money purports to provide, is much more easily adapted to the conditions of a totalitarian state.

John Maynard Keynes

Who would have thunk it.
