Revealing rhetoric from Obama during Clinton’s first term.  Juicy tidbit:

Obama argued that the talk of values was empty without social action, and without a vigorous government role: “It’s not easy to live up to your ideals, it requires sacrifice. It may require taxes on the part of the society. It may require that you go without certain luxuries that you become accustomed to.”

Starving Amidst Plenty

Socialist or capitalist monopolies lead to rationing societies where production is restrained and innovation is discouraged. The difference between the two is that a capitalist monopoly can be overcome. A socialist monopoly however is insurmountable because it carries with it the full weight of the authorities and the ideology that is inculcated into every man, woman and child in the country.

We have become a rationing society. Our industries and our people are literally starving in the midst of plenty. Farmers are kept from farming, factories are kept from producing and businessmen are kept from creating new companies and jobs. This is done in the name of a variety of moral arguments, ranging from caring for the less fortunate to saving the planet. But rhetoric is only the lubricant of power. The real goal of power is always power. Consolidating production allows for total control through the moral argument of rationing, whether through resource redistribution or cap and trade.

The politicians of a rationing society may blather on endlessly about increasing production, but it’s so much noise, whether it’s a Soviet Five Year Plan or an Obama State of the Union Address. When they talk about innovation and production, what they mean is the planned production and innovation that they have decided should happen on their schedule. And that never works.

I met a man once who told me that his greatest dream was to be feasting at a full table while outside hungry people pass by and look longingly through the window. This is the type of mindset that a rationing society produces. Its denizens instinctively absorb the idea that resources are finite and their competitiveness takes place at a zero sum level that is incomprehensible in any open society.

In a rationing society, people are certain that if another has something, then he came by it unfairly. And every group has an exaggerated sense of the material prosperity of other groups. This is not a bug, it is a feature. The rationing society deliberately cultivates a sense of unfairness to make it clear that individual efforts are meaningless and the only thing that matters is one’s connections to the rationers and the degree of mutual support from the group for the rationers and the rationers for the group.

Individual initiative is discouraged by a web of bureaucracy to make it difficult for individuals to act outside the plan. In a monopolistic system, rules and permits make it difficult for the individual to move forward. The permit regime also promotes corruption which makes honest enterprise almost impossible. Through these means the system restrains the micro, which is ordinarily too small to be properly controlled, while focusing on the macro.

The Most Divisive Campaign in American History

Posted in American History, Class Warfare, Democrat Hate/Violence, Fascism/Nazism/Communism, Obama, Progressivism with tags , , , , , on August 14, 2012 by b5blue

Daniel Greenfield keeps jacking them out of the ballpark.   If we could have a Fantasy Blogger Team, I’d draft Daniel as my designated slugger.   Line drive outta da park:

This basic gap was obscured in the 2008 campaign by the window trappings of inspiration. Among all the plastic pillars and stolen quotes from poets who stole them from sermons, it was harder to see that the underlying theme of the campaign was dissatisfaction with America. But in 2012, Obama can no longer run as a reformer or an optimist.

The coalition that he committed to last year is a coalition of those who are unhappy with America, not in the last four years, but in the last two-hundred years. Its core is composed of groups that fear democracy and distrust the will of the people. There is no optimism here, but a deeply rooted pessimism about human nature and the country as a whole. It is the Democratic Party’s coalition against democracy.

>snip<

To vote for Obama after years of grotesque economic mismanagement that has no precedent in history, that exceeds the worst actions of Andrew Jackson or Ulysses S. Grant, is not the instinct of an American, but a selfish greedy looter scrambling to grab a few dinner rolls off the tray while the ship is going down. There is no policy justification for voting for a man with the worst economic and foreign policy record in the country’s history. There is no American justification for voting for him. Only the UnAmerican motivation of carving up a dying country into group fiefdoms privileging identity politics over the common good.

This is an UnAmerican campaign. It is an Anti-American campaign. It is a campaign by those who hate and fear what America was and who resent having to care about anyone outside their own group. Its group jingoism, its dog whistles and special privileges are repulsive and cynical, treating the people of a great nation like a warren of rats eager to sell each other out for a prize from the Cracker Jack box of identity politics entitlements.

>snip<

Obama has never been the President of the United States of America. He has been the president of Washington D.C., of Wall Street and of Solyndra. He has been the President of Green America and of Chicago. He has been the President of Warren Buffett, George Soros, Bill Gates, Penny Pritzker and James Crown. He is the President of George Clooney, Harvey Weinstein and Anne Hathaway. And now, facing disaster, he still isn’t running to be President of a country, but of a dozen little countries with money from freshly bailed out Green America and Wall Street, not to mention Hollywood.

The Obama campaign is not accidentally divisive. It did not stumble into divisiveness. It is not even divisive as a byproduct of its real aims. Divisiveness is its aim. Divisiveness is the only way that a divisive administration can hold on to power. The anger and the violence are not an accident, they are the whole point. Set one group against another, feed the hate, massage the grievances and very soon there is no longer a nation but a handful of quarreling groups being roped into a mutual alliance to reelect their lord protector whose appeal is that of the outsider becoming the insider.

>snip<

The entity is already here. Its czars are running things in D.C., and its judges are dismantling both constitutional government and democratic elections. It creates a crisis and then makes sure that it doesn’t go to waste. It has excellent design skills and terrible planning skills. It has all the money in the world and none at all. It is the Post-American America, and 2012 is its big referendum. The one that will decide whether this Post-American America, this horrid graft of E.U. governance and Mussolini economics, Soviet propaganda and FDR volunteerism, Tammany populist criminality and U.N. foreign policy will be permitted to devour the United States of America.

Obama cannot win an American election. But he isn’t running in an American election. He’s running in a Post-American election.

Read the whole darned thang.

Woo Hoo! Another Democrat escapee!

I’m going to let Mr. Hunter take it from here: Why this Afro American small businessman and life-long Democrat will never vote Democrat againJuicy part:

This wonderful American Dream has been demolished by the DNC for me.  I will never , ever vote for any Democrat ever again since the Democratic National Committee feels it is okay to discriminate against an Afro American small businessman who runs a business that is nonunion.    I don’t use my race as a crutch or as a weapon of blackmail as many groups do.  I am very proud of being a minority and frankly being a minority has been a non-issue in securing clients and doing a great job for them.  Isn’t it ironic that the Democratic National Committee is discriminating against me, a black man?  A black man that has the audacity to go into business for himself and be successful,  has endured intimidation and discrimination from this very union that they are requiring people to use,  and is not afraid to tell the true story.

This is my story and I will not be afraid to tell it.  I should not be afraid to tell my story. I grew up in the projects amongst drug dealers and poverty.  I should not be afraid to pursue the American Dream.  I bring this illegal activity to light for all people that are afraid to speak out about this injustice.  I must expose the DNC!

As I always say: there is nobody so racist as a liberal with a race card.

Take me down to the parasite city

Gene Healy ought to get an extra cookie for a title worthy of Article Title of the Year.

Have you seen the latest jobs report? Major buzzkill: creeping unemployment, anemic growth, and the recovery’s totally stalled.

But not here: The District is booming! “Washington may have the healthiest economy of any major metropolitan area in the country,” says New York Times D.C. bureau chief David Leonhardt in Sunday’s Gray Lady. “You can actually see the prosperity”!

Yes we can! Construction cranes dominate the downtown skyline, and your average homeless guy can barely grab a stretch of sidewalk before yet another boutique store pops up to bounce his bedroll.

True, if you venture outside the Death Star’s orbit to visit the colonies for Thanksgiving or Christmas, you’ll see a lot of boarded-up storefronts. You might even feel a twinge of shame when Matt Drudge feeds you headlines like “D.C. Leads List of Most Shopaholic Cities in America.”

Read the rest.   Makers are being lorded over by the Takers.

Serving Rat-Fil-A in November Voting Booths

Posted in Class Warfare, Democrat Hate/Violence, Liberal Hypocrisy with tags , , , , , on August 5, 2012 by b5blue

Just a quick post to highlight the fact that others have noted the deeper impact of Chik-Fil-A day means a toasted goose for Obama.

To wit:

Even worse for the left what are the odds people willing to stand in line for hours to get a meal for the sake of principle will not stand in line to vote when November comes along?

So lets compare the responses.

Newsweek, the magazine that liberals have lost millions of dollars to support goes fishing for a story and as of right now has come up empty.

While Mike Huckabee little suggestion has resulted in record sales for Chick Fil A and has made a visible demonstration of the power of their supporters on this issue.

The ultimate irony, Thanks to Huckabee’s call and the response Chick-Fil-A may have managed to gross more money Wednesday than Newsweek lost all of last year and the profits they made today were fueled by individual customers who each spent more money on their meal than the selling price of the entire Newsweek franchise.

Patterico verbalizes what many of us have thought:

A tipping point may arrive: where I decide that the need to oppose terrorist tactics outweighs my desire to seek social justice.

I’m not there. Yet. But does the fringe of this movement really want to keep pushing me that direction?

And do you think I’m the only person having thoughts like this?!

Keep pushing us ya bunch of leftist jackasses.   We’re slow to anger but we’re far worse than a wet, cornered Bobcat in survival mode….and we have you outnumbered and outgunned.
