The Redistribution Recession - When Helping Doesn't Help

Public moneys have recently been used to help the unemployed, the poor and the financially distressed endure the recession, but at the same time have dramatically eroded incentives for people to maintain their own living standards by seeking, accepting and retaining jobs, as well as incentives for employers to create jobs that are attractive to workers.

These incentives and their changes over time in terms of marginal tax rates, which refer to the extra taxes paid, and subsidies forgone, as a result of working, expressed as a ratio to the income from working. ...

The Truth is Gay Marriage is a Liberal move to INCREASE Fatherlessness and Dependancy

During slavery, fathers were often removed from families in order to keep the family from rising up and were sold as chattel to other plantations.  It was a cruel and brutal attack on the nuclear family that reverberates today in the culture.  After slavery was outlawed the family began to restore itself until in the 1950s there was a near normalcy.  Segregation and racism was rampant..but families stood together. 
 
In the 1960s under Lyndon Johnson there was a renewed effort to strip the family of Fathers and in order to increase dependency on the state.  It was called the war on poverty.  Decades later poverty rates are about the same but families have been damaged by fatherlessness.  

There is a cruel new move toward the excising of fathers from the family unit.  This is more insidious.  The state is ceasing to recognize gender by embracing gay marriage.  This will take some thinking, but it's time for Christians to stand up against the intentional destruction of the family by a heartless government.   Fathers are once again on the chopping block when the state determines if you are or are not a parent.  Read this ..it's a bit long..but brutal:

A few months ago, a new group launched called “Young Conservatives for the Freedom to Marry.” This is a group sponsored by a larger organization called “Freedom to Marry.” The objective of these groups is to promote gay marriage.

These young conservatives have been beguiled by leftist language, and my conclusion is that they must not be familiar with the philosophical underpinnings of true conservatism. They wrongly believe that “the freedom to marry is not a partisan value and is consistent with basic conservative values of responsibility and community, limited government and individual freedom.” But the so-called “freedom to marry” is not a conservative value. It’s a liberal value, plain and simple.

Here’s how it works. It’s a bit complex (which is one reason people on my side of the debate have trouble defending it), but I’ll break it down into the smallest segments I can.

1. “Gay marriage” really means “genderless marriage.”

2. Genderless marriage means references to gender must be removed from the law. Words like “bride,” “groom,” “husband,” “wife,” “mother,” and “father” must all be replaced with genderless terms such as “partner,” “party,” and “parent.” This happened in Canada when the Canadian government redefined marriage in 2005. For example, the term “natural parent” was replaced with “legal parent.” Recently the French government made it clear that it’ll be removing the terms “father” and “mother” from the French legal code in order to accommodate gay (genderless) marriage.

3. Removing gender references from the law removes the recognition of natural bonds between mothers and fathers with their children. These natural bonds are replaced with legal, artificial, and therefore subjective, bonds.

4. Removing gender references from the law affects every member of society, not just gay couples. It redefines marriage for the entire society.

5. Replacing natural bonds with state-defined bonds absolutely goes against the natural law founding of our country. Our Founding Fathers understood natural law to mean that we had certain rights that come to us from God. They referred to these as “unalienable rights.” If there are any unalienable rights whatsoever, certainly the natural bond of a child to his own mother and father is chief among them.

TRUE COLORS - this and the cartoons below show them

There was a Song. TRUE COLORS. We saw that last night. The great difference. I kept thinking about if something were to happen to whomever is the next president, who do you want to be leading our nation, representing us before dignitaries and working with congress? That for me was clear. Biden's demeanor was disturbing. The fact that he is a heartbeat away smirking rudely interrupting and lying like a fish is the reason we conservatives consider him a buffoon..and boy did he ever illustrate that well last night. He might be OLDER but he is far less Mature. The only adult at the desk was Ryan. He'll make a great VP and retiring Biden will be a gift to the world. IF you wonder why NOTHING GETS DONE in Washington DC you saw it tonight. That kind of yelling screaming petulance is exactly why we have gridlock. Ryan tried to be conversational, Biden was confrontational. Just like happens in Congress. IF we can't work with these people we have to replace them.

Johnny Ward -- TEN INSPIRING QUOTES FOR A DEPRESSED HEART:



Begin Each Day Anew - "Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them -- every day begin the task anew."
[Saint Francis de Sales]

A Treasured Pearl - "A pearl is a beautiful thing that is produced by an injured life. It is the tear [that results] from the injury of the oyster. The treasure of our being in this world is also produced by an injured life. If we had not been wounded, if we had not been injured, then we will not produce the pearl."
[Stephan Hoeller]

Find Your Joy - "Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy."
[Thich Nhat Hanh]

Make Humor An Asset - "Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keep friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment."
[Greenville Kleisser]

The Building Blocks Of Character - "Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved."
[Helen Keller]

Listen To Pain - "Pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our consciences, but shouts in our pains. It is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world."
[C.S. Lewis]

"Prosperity is not without many fears and disasters; and adversity is not without comforts and hopes."
[Francis Bacon]

"Just as despair can come to one only from other human beings, hope, too, can be given to one only by other human beings."
[Elie Weisel]

"We must accept finite disappointment, but we must never lose infinite hope."
[Martin Luther King]

Be Healed By Compassion - "The greatest degree of inner tranquility comes from the development of love and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being."
[Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama]

Change Your Thoughts - "What you thought before has led to every choice you have made, and this adds up to you at this moment. If you want to change who you are physically, mentally, and spiritually, you will have to change what you think."
[Dr. Patrick Gentempo]

What Saves You - "Nothing worth doing is completed in our lifetime,
Therefore, we are saved by hope.

Nothing true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history;
Therefore, we are saved by faith.

Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone.
Therefore, we are saved by love.

No virtuous act is quite as virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or foe as from our own;
Therefore, we are saved by the final form of love, which is forgiveness."
[Reinhold Niebuhr]

What Hyperinflation looks like...its ugly

Via Art Cashin of UBS,
Originally, on this day in 1922, the German Central Bank and the German Treasury took an inevitable step in a process which had begun with their previous effort to "jump start" a stagnant economy. Many months earlier they had decided that what was needed was easier money. Their initial efforts brought little response. So, using the governmental "more is better" theory they simply created more and more money. But economic stagnation continued and so did the money growth. They kept making money more available. No reaction. Then, suddenly prices began to explode unbelievably (but, perversely, not business activity).
So, on this day government officials decided to bring figures in line with market realities. They devalued the mark. The new value would be 2 billion marks to a dollar. At the start of World War I the exchange rate had been a mere 4.2 marks to the dollar. In simple terms you needed 4.2 marks in order to get one dollar. Now it was 2 billion marks to get one dollar. And thirteen months from this date (late November 1923) you would need 4.2 trillion marks to get one dollar. In ten years the amount of money had increased a trillion fold.
Numbers like billions and trillions tend to numb the mind. They are too large to grasp in any “real” sense. Thirty years ago an older member of the NYSE (there were some then) gave me a graphic and memorable (at least for me) example. “Young man,” he said, “would you like a million dollars?” “I sure would, sir!”, I replied anxiously. “Then just put aside $500 every week for the next 40 years.” I have never forgotten that a million dollars is enough to pay you $500 per week for 40 years (and that’s without benefit of interest). To get a billion dollars you would have to set aside $500,000 dollars per week for 40 years. And a…..trillion that would require $500 million every week for 40 years. Even with these examples, the enormity is difficult to grasp.
Let’s take a different tack. To understand the incomprehensible scope of the German inflation maybe it’s best to start with something basic….like a loaf of bread. (To keep things simple we’ll substitute dollars and cents in place of marks and pfennigs. You’ll get the picture.) In the middle of 1914, just before the war, a one pound loaf of bread cost 13 cents. Two years later it was 19 cents. Two years more and it sold for 22 cents. By 1919 it was 26 cents. Now the fun begins.
In 1920, a loaf of bread soared to $1.20, and then in 1921 it hit $1.35. By the middle of 1922 it was $3.50. At the start of 1923 it rocketed to $700 a loaf. Five months later a loaf went for $1200. By September it was $2 million. A month later it was $670 million (wide spread rioting broke out). The next month it hit $3 billion. By mid month it was $100 billion. Then it all collapsed. Let’s go back to “marks”. In 1913, the total currency of Germany was a grand total of 6 billion marks. In November of 1923 that loaf of bread we just talked about cost 428 billion marks. A kilo of fresh butter cost 6000 billion marks (as you will note that kilo of butter cost 1000 times more than the entire money supply of the nation just 10 years earlier).

I would LIKE to offer an alternative store in Farmland if I could figure out how to structure it...
Fake money, run by a fake dictator. Not far from the USA, at least in the money department. Here's a shock, there is no real money, only those willing to say there is...until there isn't. Ask those in Zimbabwe. Trust and faith in currency is the currency of any nation...until it isn't. Socialism ends up here every time it's tried.

More money does not equal more wealth.
It disturbed me a bit on Saturday watching the Penn State Northwestern Game on TV. There were 90,000 people in the stands cheering the Penn State team on like nothing had ever happened. I am German. I come from people displaced and punis
hed because our nation lost a war. I didn't do anything wrong, My forefathers didn't do anything wrong. They weren't guilty for the crimes in war our leaders committed. Yet they took our land and ran us off. We suffered shame because the nation sinned by having leaders who were evil. How is that different from Penn State? It would be as if Torchlight Parades and "Deutschland, Deutschland ├╝ber alles"were sung in the streets the year after the war ended with crowds of people cheering. People keep saying, what did those players and fans do wrong? Why punish them? I ask the same thing of my fathers land?. They should NOT have played foot ball for a few years. This was wrong. It bothered me.
Stupid Thief Tricks. Some Days you just can't get a break. This story is funny, and sad. These people's moms and dads must be so proud. This kind of crime has spread to the NW side of Chicago. SMH Cops can't fix this, money can't fix this, more education can't fix this. You can't fix stupid and that which fosters it.

if the government was not in the car regulation business

You know of course, if the government was not in the car regulation business cars would cost a LOT less. Here's an idea just how much. Yes, there are safety and convenience compromises...but it does make me think. What IF????

A true story from someone I know...



A few years ago, on David's father's 90 something birthday, the family got together to celebrate on a Saturday evening, two days before the actual birthday date so everyone could attend. The entire family was there and a good time was had by all.

The following Monday (his Father's actual birthday), before leaving town for a trade show, David dropped by th
e nursing home to say good bye before hitting the road. As he greeted his father, David said, "Dad, I just came by to wish you a Happy Birthday before I leave."

His father stared at him with this puzzled look and replied, "You know I've always heard that the older you get the faster the years go by. I could have sworn I had a birthday just a couple of days ago."

I didn't write this. I haven't earned the right.

How the Cycle of Slavery Has Continued Through Loyal Black Democrats

From 1619 to 1865, Slaves in America longed for the moment to escape the dependency on a White Master for his or her survival. Understand, the Master thought it was in the slave's best interest, just as much as his own, for that slave to remain a slave.

From 1865-1960, Blacks in America who longed for voter equality, thrived ec
onomically and academically, despite enduring segregation that my generation could not even imagine! No hand outs, no entitlements, these people thrived on their sheer will from God and each other.

From 1964-Today, thanks to the Great Society and Democrat policies, we have people marching for the black cause in demanding more entitlement and reassurance for government assistance. Even to the point now where those same advocates for black entitlement, oppose Voter ID laws because they believe blacks are too incapable of participating in the voting process amid basic changes.

As we make up 12% of the population but 40% of all cases of welfare, I can only argue that the black allegiance to the Democrat Party policies has led to an unfortunate cycle of dependency. The most content of slaves were those who felt the master's favor in giving them things, he or she, felt essential to survival.

Wonder why there has been no real uplift since the influx of the Great Society? Once again, black America is being sold into slavery, this time by those who advocate for welfare in their marches, and demands to lower the standards because they believe the black race is too inferior to meet the requirements.

A question of those who are planning a vote FOR Obama.

 IF in view of positions he has taken on Abortion, Gay Marriage, the Homosexual Agenda, Economic Injustice, Islamification of our culture, Suppressing Free Speech, Crushing Religious Rights and several other MORAL issues, can you bow the knee and say to the Lord seriously,

"LORD BLESS THE VOTE I AM ABOUT TO MAKE...I HONOR YOU WITH THIS VOTE

AND OFFER MYSELF TO BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR WHAT I AM SANCTIONING BY THIS ACT".

IF you can.... I am puzzled. I think it is far more sacred responsibility then that. James 4:17 I would rather refrain from voting at all than vote with intention against my God Given conscience. Unless it is so seared that you can do so without a second thought. There is accountability for your actions...and that includes your vote.
Wouldn't it be easier just to put it in their hand or on their forehead? Then they couldn't argue. Why do we even have public education? This is wrong in more ways then you can imagine. Using technology to avoid having to do your job as a teacher.

In Selecting Men For Office...

"Let principle be your guide. Regard not the particular sect or denomination of the candidate-look to his character. The scriptures teach that rulers should be men who rule in the fear of God, able men, men of truth, hating covetousness. It is to the neglect of this rule that we must ascribe the multiplied frauds, breaches of trust, and embezzlement's of public property which tarnish the character of our country and disgrace government. When a citizen gives his vote to a man of known immorality, he abuses his civic responsibility; he sacrifices not only his interest, but that of his neighbor; he betrays the interest of his country."-Noah Webster, 1823

IS MOLOCH PRESENT IN THE USA?

President Obama has been open about his support for abortion, the killing of babies, the genocidal destruction of his race. This is not new. I admire the fact that he doesn't hide from his convictions. He was sponsor of the "born alive" legislation in Illinois. This legislation mandated that if an abortion is botched and the baby lives, an abortionist must let it die cold and alone without any intervention to preserve the baby's life. As President he has supported and furthered the expansion of abortion. Planned parenthood and the pro-abortion lobbies fear the potential defeat of their prime White House Supporter. They are doing all they know to do to keep him in power. They have pulled out all the stops.

This is the manifestation of the demon god Moloch in our day. A god that caused the children of Israel to sacrifice their babies to please the demon god in order to maintain their lifestyle of prosperity and convenience. Exactly the same deception today.

Zephaniah predicted this: Zephaniah 1:5 "For they go up to their roofs and bow down to the sun, moon, and stars. They claim to follow the LORD, but then they worship Molech, too". There are people who passively support the worship of modern day Molech and yet show up to sing and dance on Sunday. The word of God condemns this clearly. Leviticus 20:1-5 was punishment mandated by the True and Living God for causing their children to pass thru the fire.

No matter who the politician was, I would NEVER embrace the demon Moloch in this generation by endorsing one who supports this heinous act. IF you are a Christian and you think you can vote for President Obama in light of this, you will not only be compromising your confession, you will do damage to your conscience, searing it further. You don't have to vote for Romney, many Christians will not. It would be safer for you to refrain from partnering with the demon Molech from the pit of Hell by a vote that perpetuates this direction in our nation.

Here are some headlines from his term in office that Illustrate his outspoken support and encouragement of Abortion, the Demonic Presence of Moloch

January 2009 – Obama lifts restrictions on U.S. government funding for groups that provide abortion services or counseling abroad, forcing taxpayers to fund pro-abortion groups that either promote or perform abortions in other nations.

March 2009 – The Obama administration shut out pro-life groups from attending a White House-sponsored health care summit.

March 2009 – Obama gave $50 million for the UNFPA, the UN population agency that promotes abortion and works closely with Chinese population control officials who use forced abortions and involuntary sterilizations.

May 2009 – The White House budget eliminates all funding for abstinence-only education and replaces it with “comprehensive” sexual education, repeatedly proven to increase teen pregnancies and abortions. He continues the deletion in subsequent budgets.

May 2009 – Obama officials assemble a terrorism dictionary calling pro-life advocates violent and charging that they use racism in their “criminal” activities.

July 2010 – The Obama administration uses federal funds in violation of federal law to get Kenya to change its constitution to include abortion.

March 2011 – The Obama administration refuses to investigate videos showing Planned Parenthood helping alleged sex traffickers get abortions for victimized underage girls.

October 2011 – The Obama administration eliminates federal grants to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops for their extensive programs that aid victims of human trafficking because the Catholic Church is anti-abortion.

THE "CELL PHONE SALUTE" by our "Campaigner in Chief."

Choose wisely!

While walking down the street one day a Corrupt Senator (that may be redundant) was hit by a bus and died.

His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

"Welcome to heaven," says St.. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you."

"No problem, just let me in," says the Senator.

"Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we'll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity."

"Really?, I've made up my mind. I want to be in heaven," says the Senator.

"I'm sorry, but we have our rules."

And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.

The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course.

In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.

They played a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and the finest champagne.

Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who is having a good time dancing and telling jokes.

They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises.

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him, "Now it's time to visit heaven...”

So, 24 hours passed with the Senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

"Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity."

The Senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: "Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell."

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell...

Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage.

He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls to the ground.

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders.

"I don't understand," stammers the Senator. "Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?"

The devil smiles at him and says,
"Yesterday we were campaigning,

Today, you voted.."
