MISCELANEOUS MUSINGS

An accumulation of thoughts about a few different topics.


Claremont citizens – don't forget to go vote Tuesday the 8th on the school budget and warrants! It doesn't matter if you are an owner or renter, tax increases will affect you. Express your views by voting!

Some people have asked me if I find it hard to write an article every week. Actually, no. I find it frustrating because I don't have the room to put in everything I'd like to include, nor to give more thorough explanations of things I do include. (Incidentally, every week or two I send out a political email with much more information. If you would like to get it, email me, let me know and I'll add you to the list.) Since I can't fit so much into the articles, I decided that I would put some items I have not included in a way that you can google on your own if you would like to.

“The Progressive's Perfect Trojan Horse” - Lloyd Marcus. A blog that explains his opinion of how what has been happening in America has been allowed to happen.

“How America Became A Communist Nation” - Porter Stansberry. Published 2/4/11 in www.personalliberty.com an excellent short article showing some common “bad ideas” that have corrupted the concept of democracy.

“Outline of a Platform for Constitutional Government” - Larry P. Arnn. Published in Imprimis imprimis@hillsdaleconnect.org November 2011. The title explains it.

“Ten Reasons to Reject Socialism” - The American Society for Defense of Tradition, Family and Property. The title explains this one too.

“Gold and Economic Freedom” - Alan Greenspan. An oldie but goodie written in 1966. This five-page article explains the importance of a gold based currency, how important it is for economic freedom and why statists (people who want a big and strong central government) don't want it. America used to have a gold based currency. The Federal Reserve (created in 1913) managed to get rid of it so that they could manipulate our money supply. Interesting fact - Alan Greenspan was appointed to run the Federal Reserve 21 years after he wrote this article and proceeded to manipulate our money for years!

A little history about the Federal Reserve: The Constitution assigns Congress the responsibility of running the Treasury (and therefore the money). In 1913, President Woodrow Wilson, a 'progressive' educator turned politician, one senator and one representative passed a law during Congress' Christmas recess that created the Federal Reserve, and put monetary matters under its control. In other words, Congress was “relieved” of its constitutional responsibility and a group of private banks, run by unelected bankers, now controlled the money and monetary policy in America.

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” - Thomas Jefferson

 

GOOD FOR THE HOUSE! In Congress, the Republicans successfully added an amendment to the continuing resolution that would leave President Barack Obama’s senior advisers on policy issues including health care, energy and others... out of a job. The vote was 249-179. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) offered the amendment that blocks funding for various policy advisers to combat what he called “a very disturbing proliferation of czars” under Obama. “These unappointed, unaccountable people who are literally running a shadow government, heading up these little fiefdoms that nobody can really seem to identify where they are or what they’re doing,” Scalise said last Thursday. “But we do know that they’re wielding vast amounts of power.”

The House of Representatives have shown leadership in the Federal budget fiasco. If Senate Democrats and the president choose to not follow their example, then one has to wonder if they prefer the government to shutdown rather than make the necessary tough decisions.

French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, has pronounced multiculturalism defunct and a failure. "If you come to France, you accept to melt into a single community, which is the national community, and if you do not want to accept that, you cannot be welcome in France," explained Sarkozy. The French president joins German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Australia's ex-prime minister John Howard, Spain's ex-premier Jose Maria Aznar, and British Prime Minister David Cameron in heaving a failed policy into history's dustbin. 

Prime Minister Cameron has called for a "more active, more muscular liberalism," one that requires the active promotion of democratic values, the rule of law, freedom of speech, and equal rights. In a recent speech in Munich he argued that, "under the doctrine of state multiculturalism, we have encouraged different cultures to live separate lives, apart from each other and the mainstream." The result is alienation and occasionally jihadism. This is one time I would like to see America imitate Europe.

“Run away! Run away!” At least in Monty Python skits, this was funny. Not so in the midwest. How embarrassing is the behavior of the Democrat legislators in Wisconsin and Indiana? Instead of staying and debating and voting like they were voted into office and are paid to do, they ran away – out of the state! This is PATHETIC! I would be ASHAMED to act in such babyish, bratty and cowardly fashion!
