In my last post I gave a little background on the principles on which this great country of ours was founded. It was not founded on political rhetoric, religious rhetoric, or even financial rhetoric. It was founded on sound, for-profit business principles and was originally colonized by people who understood these principles. This is how the colonies became strong enough to throw off the rule of Great Britain and is the only reason the revolutionary war was fought. Our war for independence was not fought for ideological reasons of any kind. It was fought over money and taxation. The colonists wanted the taxation practises of the mother country to be fair, and moderate enough to allow all the people being taxed to sustain a prosperous lifestyle. We now have a movement in conservative politics called the Tea Party, after the original patriot version of the same name. It is fighting for the same causes that our founding fathers did–money and taxation.

We have raised up in this country a generation who have what I have heard called “the entitlement spending” mentality. An increasing number of voters who believe it is the state or federal governments job to see to it they are doctored, fed, clothed, housed, and provided with an ample supply of spending money.  The roots of this generation go back to the time of the Civil War. Before this era, Americans fully expected to earn their own living whereby they provided for their families and other dependents. Generally, “other dependents” in the north meant servants/employees, in the south, slaves.

This “entitlement” generation has sprung from the least educated and therefore the lowest income bracket of the preceding five generations. The domestic servants, farm laborers(not owners), shop and business clerks, street sweepers, chimney sweepers, and the newly freed slave populations in the south. The wage earners as opposed to the wage generators. The people who depended on but did not have to actually run a business for their livelihood. The people who generally had their necessities met without the worry or headaches involved in the hands-on management of the for-profit business that generated the revenue for them. In a word, the servant/slave mentality, acquired through many generations of ordinary people who were accustomed to having the “master” provide all the items still expected by their entitlement mentality descendants. This is the mind-set that grew up in the farm kitchens, domestic servants halls, slave quarters and carriage houses of the Civil War era and has now embedded itself in our public forums like so much bindweed in a border. The legislative mentality that is in a fair way to choking the life out of our entire economy. The “entitlement spending mentality.”

The descendants of this group are the people who passed the social security measure during the Great Depression, and the revised-to-target-the-individual income tax amendment before that, sometime around WWI. You see I am tracing the timeline backward to the source of our current fiscal difficulties which are found in a certain segment of our people and not in our legislative process.

These entitlement spending supporters base their legislative goals on spite. Their spending criteria are motivated by a let’s screw the “rich” people, they deserve it, mindset. Why? They perceive “rich” people as being “the enemy” for some reason. Again, why? If an individual cannot be allowed to prosper in peace in this country, if parents are to be penalized for leaving their children well provided for, the country itself will certainly not prosper. It is not prospering now, is it? My thoughts on this are not new by any means. There was a cagey old Greek by the name of Aesop who wrote a fable about this subject awhile back. It was about a dog and his bone. Look it up sometime. It sets forth in very simple style why our nation is not prospering under the sway of this entitlement mentality.

It is now time to call a halt to the hostilities in the class war that have been moving our legislation for the last fifty years.  The “poor” against the “rich.” Those of you who have been so anxious to prevent “rich” people as though they were some kind of social disease have shot yourselves in the foot. You’re scared about your old age pensions now and basically, you deserve this.  You passed all the legislation you could think of to deprive “rich” people of theirs.

Me? I’m a conscientious objector in this war. It is against my American principles of justice and fair play to grudge people their wealth. Even if their parents left it to them, it is still not mine or really any of my business. We are not going to win the war on poverty by shooting rich people and I won’t support the notion that we should quietly strangle them with legislation either. This has been tried and the result is that now “poor” people have found their own heads in the noose instead. Sorry folks. This is no more than justice.

My next post will be–The War Against The Poor.

I saw two segments on the evening news last night worthy of our consideration.

Starbucks CEO is getting up a campaign to block campaign donations in order (he claims) to teach Congress a lesson in responsible government. This is a lie and a move by the Lesbian Liberal Party to re-elect Barack Insane Obeyme in 2012. These women want him in there because he is basically, a fool. Remember how much press was given to the fact that the chief reason Obeyme was “elected” was the super spending provided by some mysterious backers? The LLP is running scared right now and the Starbucks ploy is an attempt to keep their campaign spending edge by getting unthinking conservative voters and backers to vent their anger at the system at the expense of their objectives which are getting rid of this posturing idiot.

Next item–

With the so-called repeal of the DADT legislation, it seems that now the Lesbian Liberal Party feels in a position to increase its efforts to castrate the american military, and has introduced legislation to reduce the military pension program to the level of corporate america’s thieving and controlling policies. This is the home nest of these vicious and unnatural women so it is not wonderful they feel more comfortable trying to reduce fighting men to that level. We would not be even hearing rumors of this obscenity if the LLP had not first made such noise about DADT in the name of “patriotism.” Now you can all see where the patriotism of these women is leading.

What we need now are conservative members of congress to introduce, instead of the military pension garbage, legislation that targets the retirement program of congress itself. Now would be a good time  to point out that these people retire at full salary and benefits after a career of doing nothing but talk. Our military veterans do a real job for us. Start talking this up people. Believe me it will help.

In my continuing series of war stories, I will now touch upon a subject that will dismay and repel a great many people, especially those in the democratic party of these United States. The war against the rich. Bear with me while I give some necessary historical background.

After the new world was discovered there followed by natural cause and effect, a period of colonization by the major players in European politics at that time. Companies were founded by men who had the capital to invest. For those of my readers who don’t know what “capital” is, think of it as money acquired by an individual that is over and above what is needed for immediate living expenses. What we all think of as “wealth.” These companies were granted charters by the various crowned heads in Europe giving specified land territories in exchange for financial considerations related to trade and import/export income possibilities.

In order to sustain their companies standing in the eyes of “the crown,” these men had to recruit colonists. Men who combined within themselves the skills, personal initiative, and just plain physical courage needed to move into an unknown and untamed wilderness and build businesses that would turn a profit. In only one case I have been able to discover did these investors come themselves to face the dangers and uncertainties of the new world. They recruited men able to work without supervision, that is, men who could conceive and execute a financial plan all on their own, do the initial physical labor involved, and hire other men who would be able to add their own skills to the enterprise. And of course, these men would bring their wives and children with them, man not being a solitary animal by either choice or instinct. And the women married to such men had also to be self motivated, possessed of many skills and physical courage or they would not have survived in the new wilderness. No women, no children, no men, no colony, no profit. Thus were the majority of the colonies of the new world founded. There was at least one founded as a criminal justice colony but that is for another war story.

Dear Readers, prepare yourselves now for an unimaginable horror. Most of you have taken up the history of these United States after the Declaration of Independence of 1776. “All men were created equal” and that sort of thing and you believe that these are the principles on which  America was founded. This is not so. America was founded, colonized, and survived, on the principles of good sound business practise.

The revolutionary war came of Great Britain’s refusal to adhere to them after establishing a for-profit colony built by free men. “No taxation without representation”, was the rallying cry of the original “Tea Party” patriots.  America grew into a nation to be reckoned with by the everyday, personal efforts of those men and women who, as individuals, understood and of their own initiative, used good, sound business practises for their own profit, the profit of their employees(they were paid you know), and the profit of the original investors. America is now almost on the rocks of financial insolvency(witness the current debate on the “debt ceiling”) because the majority of voters have lost sight of this very major fact of our beginnings.

Somewhere between the eras of the Civil and the Second World Wars, Americans came to view their government as a source of unearned income for the masses. The focus became public “welfare” benefits and not free, individual, profit bearing initiatives. Somewhere in here there arose a notion that “rich” people were responsible for providing for “the masses” out of their own pockets because that was “fair,” without any thought as to where those “rich” people actually got their money. Somewhere within this time period it became a crime against all americans to be “rich.”

I have entitled this post—-the war against the rich. It ties in to the earlier American Dream posts in this blog because what is the American Dream if it is not that a person from the lower-income brackets can, by his/her own initiative, become “rich?” I have laid out the basic shift in our original expectation of legitimate individual profit to government-funded, unearned income. My next post will be a more in-depth examination as to just why and how this shift occurred and just how it is now a crime to be “rich” in America.

My next post will be—-The War Against The Rich–continued

One of the reasons I tend to go on so about modern women’s issues is that I believe we are missing a very crucial point. And this goes back to the very beginning of the “Emancipation” movement of the 1800’s. Women were not allowed to do so many things back in the day. Voting was the very least of them although that made the most noise.
My view about women’s issues is this—
Of course we have brains as good as any mans. We can and did replace them in every hands on job the World War II effort needed while the men were away fighting to prevent Hitler taking over the world. They did what they had to and we did the same.
The real point to my mind is—- men cannot replace us. Certainly in motherhood. But look at our lives today and envision the life your young daughters are going to have. Graceless, restless, full of the cheapest public sexuality that demeans both men and women. Here is a news flash ladies, decent men don’t love the notion of being treated like a mindless stud animal any more than women want to be treated like breeding stock. Yes, there are decent men around. Look for the guy with his mouth shut.
This is the year 2011. I think we’ve made our point girls. Yes, we are fully capable of being scientists and doctors. Men however, are still not capable of being mothers and our homes are now a travesty. We are missing the stability, grace, and nurturing environment in our homes and therefore our communities that only full-time wives and mothers can provide. Men cannot replace us in this field. I think a woman should be able to pursue a career if she so chooses and I think we have pretty much got that issue licked now. But look at our country. Men are still working and being fathers and providers. That has not changed. We have so much trouble and unrest, especially among our children because we are all missing the efforts or our full-time moms. To her husband, children, and community, the full-time mother is irreplaceable.
I hope that women growing up today will now find the self-respect they felt cheated of in past generations. I hope that those girls who choose to be a wife and mother will commit themselves full-time to the job with a true understanding of just how irreplaceable they really are. Maybe then we can start to rebuild our homes, communities, and country.
