A free people would not put up with the kind of criminal, murderous mischief that we “enjoy” today from Federal, State, Local, and Tribal officials and employees, and this column’s articles show some major and minor examples. At the same time, we see that around the world, things are worse!
Theft by government
Ten Year Congressional Budget Outlook Predicts Slow Growth
(CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET OFFICE) Provided current laws remain the same, the budget deficit is projected to shrink for a fourth year in a row in 2014 to an estimated $845 billion, which represents 5.3 percent of gross domestic product…
Nathan: The byline alone should warn you this is a pack of lies. The “official deficit” might – MIGHT – shrink, but the REAL deficit: the growth in the real debt owed by the FedGov, is climbing and will continue to climb. Even if this were true, the increase in the national debt is accelerating due to interest and increases in entitlements. No wonder more and more Congressional scum are eying the $19 trillion in private retirement accounts.
Stupid government – Government-run, tax-funded schools
Labor Force Mismatch Leads to College Grad Underemployment
(CENTER FOR COLLEGE AFFORDABILITY) Roughly 48 percent of employed college graduates are in jobs that the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says require less than a four-year college education…
Nathan: Assuming we can believe the BLS (BIG assumption), this is the other side of the coin that a very large percentage of degrees have NO economic purpose or function. The person with a Womyn’s Study degree or a Gay and Lesbian Studies degree or even a degree in American History, English Literature, or Modern Media, has no more utility to an employer – or to their success as an entrepreneur – than a high school diploma, with the possible exception that they might have demonstrated some modicum of discipline in actually completing a four-year-degree in ANYTHING. Of course, the other factor is that the QUALITY of the degrees is low and getting worse by the year. The reasoning, comprehension, writing, and basic math/science skills of a 2011 or 2012 college graduate makes the skills of someone who graduated in 1991 or 1992 look great: and they weren’t all that good then.
Mama’s Note: No, they were not that good even then. I taught nursing at a community college in So. Calif. in 1991 and can assure you that most of the students were unprepared to do college level work, and did not have the basic writing and comprehension tools to make best use of even the outdated and dumbed down curriculum we had to work with. It was a real nightmare. The most frightening lack was their inability and general unwillingness to engage in any kind of critical thinking. It was very apparent that they had been carefully conditioned never to think for themselves, and not to question “authority.” I can only shudder to think how much worse it is now. Just remember that this is where a great many of your current nurses and other healthcare professionals come from.
Energy – Stupid people
Interest Group Wants to End Natural Gas Exports
(INSTITUTE FOR ENERGY RESEARCH) Natural gas prices have fallen about 50 percent in the last few years as a result of increased production due to hydraulic fracturing…
Nathan: This group (“America’s Energy Advantage”) understands neither economics nor government. Shortsightedly, they think that a smaller market for our gas means lower prices, but more government meddling in the market will ALWAYS end badly, and what they want (government prohibition on exports) would likely drive prices up domestically. Rather, as the story points out, they should be seeking an end to FedGov moratoriums on drilling for oil as well as gas on US territory and in US waters.
Islamic war: Arab Street revolt – Stupid US government tricks
Former Special Forces Commander: DOD Could Have Flown Rescue Team From Tripoli to Benghazi; DOD: State Dept. Decided Whether and What to Fly
Nathan: This SHOULD serve as a wake-up call for those who continue to work for the government – you TOO will be left hanging in the wind (or buried in a shallow grave) if you trust the leadership to do anything to save you.
Crash of 2009
Under Obama, Worst Multi-Year Economic Recovery Since World War II
Nathan: Sorry, this is NOT a “recovery” – NOTHING is recovering; it is just not declining as rapidly as it could be. This is at best a lull in the depression we’ve been enduring since 2009.
Hypocrite – Abominable Act
Utah Governor: ‘I Do Agree’ That Obamacare Contraceptive Mandate Violates Religious Liberty
Nathan: But NO one who isn’t wearing rose-colored glasses expects him to do anything about it – or about the FedGov stealing our other rights. He has already demonstrated his hypocrisy in rejecting any opposition to the “messiah’s” gun control agenda: IN ADVANCE. Why should he reject this mandate? Oh, he’ll talk real nice like this – he has to keep Temple Square happy – but I don’t think he will take any action at all: except to shove the mandate down everyone’s throat through state agencies.
Congress in action – History
Sen. Rand Paul: Reagan’s Foreign Policy Was Robust, But Also Restrained
Nathan: I suppose he says this because he is expected to and not because it is true (or not). Reagan may have been the best president since Harding and Coolidge, but that isn’t saying much at all that is good. Like comparing one lawyer to a hundred others: still doesn’t mean the guy shouldn’t be fishbait.
Tranzi-followers – Stupid people
Chick-Fil-A-Sandwich Shooter Identified FRC as Target Using Southern Poverty Law Center Website
Nathan: Of course – why not? And as the story points out, the mainstream media and all the usual sites don’t bother to point this out. SPLC is an evil gang of Tranzis.
Rev. Jackson: Some ‘Anti-American People’ Arming Themselves in U.S. Have ‘Confederate Ideology’
Nathan: Words of high praise coming from THIS man – Confederate ideology is what we NEED: liberty, local government, personal responsibility, honor to all. That is not Anti-American, but is truly American. The video of this thug is revealing. What a perfect example of someone who has betrayed his people and his nation.
East Asian Front
Chinese State Media Say North Korea Must ‘Pay a Heavy Price’ for a Nuclear Test
Nathan: Hmmm. Taunting the West or getting ticked at their tiny little neighbor and client state?
The “messiah” – Killing
White House Agrees to Release Memo on Targeted Killings by Drone
Nathan: “Fear all ye who look upon us!” Especially all you rebel scum here in the United States, no doubt. Fortunately, more and more articles are appearing on-line on how to defeat drones – and no, you don’t have to use semi-automatic “assault weapons” to do so. (But semi-automatic battle rifles WILL have their uses if drones start being used against Americans at home: the optimum targets will be the drone operators and their chain of command, up to the political scum ordering it.)
Culture wars: killing babies – War on religion
Catholic Bishop: Obama Is ‘Proponent’ of What is ‘Shameful and Criminal in the Eyes of Almighty God’
Nathan: True – but it can also be said that it takes one to know one. The RC Church can be blamed for several actions and attitudes that have led both to this current criminal occupation of DC and the decline of American society coupled with the rise of American empire.
Culture wars: homosexual agenda
Boy Scouts Delay Vote on Whether to Admit Homosexual Scoutmasters and Scouts
Nathan: Too much pressure – this gives them a chance to let the rest of us forget about it and do it low-key, I suspect. It also gives the opponents time to firm up their options: the major one appears to be secession. Of course, those who want homosexuals to have a “Scouting” program could have departed from the BSA long ago, but in modern America it is not enough for Tranzis to have their own association – they MUST force the rest of us to associate against our will.
Mama’s Note: The point has been made in many places that the best way for the BSA to regain their “private club” status would be to renounce all “public” support, perks and income. Aside from the “tax exempt” thing – which should apply to everyone, their acceptance of government grants, along with the use of schools and other “public” facilities, leaves them open to just this sort of attack.
Nothing prevents homosexuals or anyone else from establishing their own private clubs. A few churches and other organizations have done so. AWANA is just one of them.
Congress in action – Border jumpers
Cantor Has Not Looked at Details of Senate Immigration Reform Plan, But Hopes for ‘Quick’ Solution
Nathan: I’m far from the first person this week to call the man an idiot. Of course, he is leading a pack of idiots, so are we surprised? After all, the one-eyed man is NOT the king of the land of the blind: he is the first to be killed for being different. A pack of stupid people is LEAD by a stupid person – or someone who plays one in a TV show, at least.
Hoplophobes & Hoploclasts – Government-ruined, Theft-funded schools
Virginia: Alexandria cops bust 10-year-old for bringing toy gun to school
(Washington Examiner) The boy, a fifth-grader at Douglas MacArthur Elementary School whose name is not being released, was charged as a juvenile with brandishing a weapon, police said. He was also suspended from school, and Alexandria City Public Schools Superintendent Morton Sherman said further action is being considered, including expulsion.
Nathan: Yet the latest stupid action by a GRTF school. A few days ago, I started a chart of this kind of insanity, and this is the 50th incident.
Islamic wars: Saudi front (death-cult)
Popular Muslim cleric raped and beat his daughter to death
(Daily Mail (UK)) A Saudi preacher who tortured his five-year-old daughter to death has been released after agreeing to pay ‘blood money’ … Lama al-Ghamdi died in October having suffered multiple injuries including a crushed skull, broken ribs and left arm, extensive bruising and burns. The child had also been repeatedly raped and the[n] burned. Fayhan al-Ghamdi, a prominent Islamist preacher who regularly appears on television in Saudi Arabia, served only a few months in jail despite admitting having used a cane and cables to inflict the injuries. … the judge ruled the few months al-Ghamdi spent in prison since his arrest in November was sufficient punishment. He has reportedly agreed to pay £31,000 ($50,000), which is believed to have gone to Lama’s mother. The amount is half that would have been paid if Lama had been a boy. Activists say under Islamic laws a father cannot be executed for murdering his children. Husbands can also not be executed for murdering their wives…
Nathan: What can I say? His reason for doing this – it was an honor killing because she probably wasn’t a virgin any more (I guess she went to that school in California where the five-year-old was giving blow jobs to “all the boys” in her pre-school class.) Even five-year-olds should be armed – at least when they don’t have adults around to protect them from monsters like this and in areas with death-cults like Islam. Yeah, I know, a five-year-old is unlikely to be able to use the weapon well enough to defend herself, but she deserves SOME chance. I admit that killing this man now would be wrong – a matter of vengeance which shall be carried out sooner or later. It would be a bit far-fetched to state that killing him to prevent him from doing this to someone else would not be vengeance, too. Nuking Saudi Arabia into a sheet of radioactive glass would keep this from happening again, but that would kill a lot more innocent five-year-olds, and four- and six- and so forth. (Is a clean death from nuclear blast better than being raped and beaten to death?) The best justification I am tempted to come up with is by killing him now, God’s vengeance can begin more quickly.
(And yes, I know that not EVERY Muslim believes this is right – but other Muslims seem to have a word for those who reject things like killing and torturing children and stoning women to death: that word is “heretic.”)
And speaking of death cults:
Stupid cop tricks – Murder most foul
Ohio: Cleveland Police investigated in killing of unarmed couple
Nathan: Obviously I missed this story back in October – if it appeared much of anywhere. 115 cops in a massive chase ending with at least several dozen of the mob of cops pouring 140 bullets into the car – “until they stopped moving” and the report so far criticizes the police for endangering other cops with “friendly fire.” No action taken against the cop who triggered the panic by lying about what he saw the woman in the car doing. Next time the mob can line up the victims against a nice grassy berm to make it safer for them to execute them.
