A Message from the Ivory Tower

by Robert Ringer

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

A couple of days ago, Gennaro Bernile, a professor of finance at the University of Miami, handed down these words of wisdom: “The big debate is how do you reconcile shrinking the government with not killing the economy, because the government is a big chunk of the economy, and if you shrink the government, you shrink the economy.”

And you wonder why ivory-tower types have a reputation for being disconnected from the real world? Professor Bernile’s statement is just another version of the too-big-to-fail scam. Instead of calling it failing, he calls it shrinking — the government is simply too big to shrink.

You can just feel the big spenders in Washington chuckling while warning us, “You can’t cut us down to size, because the economic consequences would be too grave.” In other words, they can violate the Constitution, overspend, overtax, and overregulate us, then, when the predictable problems are upon us, we’re warned not to try to attack the cause of those problems because it would cause too much pain. Very clever … very, very clever.

What they don’t say — and, in fairness, most of them probably do not understand — is that if you cut the size of government with a meat-ax approach, the economy would explode overnight. Which, in turn, would dwarf whatever our current bloated version of government contributes to the economy.

Of course, in reality the government contributes nothing to the economy, because it creates nothing. It merely takes money from those who produce products and services that people want and uses the stolen loot to pay its employee-voters for administering programs that are, for the most part, either unwanted or, more important, unconstitutional.

As America continues to look more and more like Greece (or, worse, Oakland), the argument will cosmetically shift to, “You can’t cut the size of government, because the result will be bloody revolution.” Again, very cute.

My take is somewhat different. I believe — and have for more than thirty years — that revolution cannot be avoided. The reason is that politicians have made it clear that they will not stop spending. The only question is whether it will be a revolution that demands an end to big government or one that demands a still bigger government to take care of everyone’s needs.

I can’t wait to see which one it will be.

Mactheriverrat -
According to Treasurydirect.gov, during his 8 year term, Bush II, ran the deficit from $5.728 Trillion to $10.628 Trillion. That's a grand total of approximately $4.9 Trillion. Barry Soetoro, in less than 3 years has ran the deficit from $10.626 Trillion to $15.054 Trillion for a grand total so far of $4.428 Trillion!

This may be the reason why some Americans weren't too upset with Bush vs The Messiah now.

Both have run up the debt - Sorry but W holds the blame too! But not to be out done by the current Socialists
Poor Americans turn a BLIND EYE when Bush and company ran up the debt.

Reminds me of a family that has been living off credit cards for years to only wake up one day and realize how deep in debt they are in. Both blame the other side for spending while both sides were adding to it.

I blame every President who signed every spending bill that every Congress ever sent sent every spending bill to every President.

There are no clean hands

Everybody wants to vote out congress, except their own congressmen and that's why they keep getting reelected.

"Despite the founders’ intentions, however, Congress has evolved from a dependency “upon the people,” to an increasing dependency upon the funders. Members spend 30 percent to 70 percent of their time raising money to stay in Congress, or to get their party back in power. Less than 1 percent of Americans give more than $200 in a political campaign. No more than .05 percent give the maximum in any Congressional campaign. A career focused on the 1 percent — or, worse, the .05 percent — will never earn them the confidence of the 99 percent. "

Congratulations to our fellow Canadians in Quebec who had the courage and conviction to exhibit their common sense in officially banning the hijab for certain transactions where identity is mandatory.... It's a start. It's a privilege to be allowed to immigrate and to live in this country..... not a right. When this hit the e-news a few weeks ago, there was overwhelming support by the readers who AGREED with Quebec 's action.

The letter below says it all... keep it going.

A Letter to the Editor (excellent letter)

So many letter writers have explained how this land is made up of immigrants. Maybe we should turn to our history books and point out to people why today's Canadian is not willing to accept the new kind of immigrant any longer.

Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to Canada , people had to get off a ship and stand in a long line in Halifax and be documented. Some would even get down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground. They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new country in good and bad times. They made learning English a primary rule in their new Canadian households and some even changed their names to blend in with their new home. They had waved good bye to their birth place to give their children a new and better life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture.

Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, no welfare, no labour laws to protect them. All they had were the skills, craftsmanship and desire they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity.

Most of their children came of age when World War II broke out. Canadians fought along side men whose parents had come straight over from Germany , Italy , France , Japan , China , Czechoslovakia , Russia , Sweden , Poland and so many other places. None of these first generation Canadians ever gave any thought about what country their parents had come from. They were Canadians fighting Hitler, Mussolini and the Emperor of Japan . They were defending the Freedom as one people. When we liberated France , no one in those villages was looking for the Ukrainian-Canadian or the German-Canadian or the Irish-Canadian. The people of France saw only Canadians.

And we carried one flag that represented our country. Not one of those immigrant sons would have thought about picking up another country's flag and waving it to represent who they were. It would have been a disgrace to their parents who had sacrificed so much to be here. These immigrants truly knew what it meant to be a Canadian. They stirred the melting pot into one red and white bowl.

And here we are in 2011 with a new kind of immigrant who wants the same rights and privileges, only they want to achieve it by playing with a different set of rules -- one that includes a Canadian passport and a guarantee of being faithful to their mother country. I'm sorry, that's not what being a Canadian is all about. Canadians have been very open-hearted and open-minded regarding immigrants, whether they were fleeing poverty, dictatorship, persecution, or what ever else makes us think of those aforementioned immigrants who truly did ADOPT our country, and our flag and our morals and our customs, and left their wars, hatred, and divisions behind. I believe that the immigrants who landed in Canada in the early 1900s deserve better than that for the toil, hard work and sacrifice those legally searching for a better life. I think they would be appalled that they are being used as an example by those waving foreign country flags, fighting foreign battles on our soil, making Canadians change to suit their religions and cultures, and wanting to change our countries fabric by claiming discrimination when we do not give in to their demands.

Its about time we get real and stand up for our forefathers rights, we are CANADIAN Lest we forget it, I am a Native of this Country & proud of it!

NO MORE POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

And while we're on the subject - allow CHRISTMAS back in stores and our schools!
