Cuomo’s latest scheme to make New York State appear to be business friendly is an act of desperation and insanity.
Dubbed “Tax-Free NY,” the plan would allow new businesses that locate on or around SUNY campuses to operate without paying income, sales, property or business taxes….Employees for businesses that open in the no-tax zones would also be exempt from income taxes.
This absurd effort will put a further strain on businesses already operating in the state by putting them at a competitive disadvantage, possibly driving them into the ground or another state. The tax base will further erode and the burden will shift to the dwindling numbers, people and businesses, that are left.

Are Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton involved, on top of it, leaders? If you ask their fans they would unanimously say, yes. Let’s face it, when “their” leadership succeeds as in the capture and death of Osama bin Laden they tape and advertise it with a bullhorn and then shove it down our throats, but when it fails as in Benghazi, the tape which surely exists, is suddenly missing and likely destroyed. Of the many scandals of the day of the Obama administration, it is Benghazi that stands out. Furthermore it is Benghazi that actually predicts and makes the other scandals quite understandable.
Though Benghazi is still an open investigation, the following, which the progressive left either doesn’t get or hopes the sheeple will not get, is crystal clear. The purpose for the organized lying campaign perpetrated by the Obama administration, post Benghazi, was to insure their re-election, using your tax dollars to execute the propaganda so that they could continue to steal your tax dollars and forward them to who they think deserves them. Once this worked by getting Obama re-elected it was only natural that the IRS was essential to the back end of the scheme to get you to be their willing dupes. Go to work and unwillingly give your taxes to your opponent to allow them to further abuse you. This is of course the antithesis of freedom, at least real freedom. Can there be any better reason to finally abolish this evil organization? The Obama administration has dozens of political agendas ready at your expense, but Benghazi is the master metaphor. Your government actively and aggressively pursued the ouster of Gaddafi, yet was unable to see that Al Qaeda was the beneficiary of their intrusion. If this fact got out, you would realize that the capture of bin Laden and therefore the destruction of Al Qaeda was a fraud and their reign would end and thus their potential total control over your lives would also end. This is the problem with lying in general. Individuals lie to one another simply to facilitate stealing something from them, usually money. If this fraud is allowed to continue, they will take your very soul and thus your freedom. The IRS is the ultimate sword of the Obama administration, cleverly used to force you to comply against your will. Obey them and it if you so choose.

The “Reverend Wright” was never so right about his famous quote. He was just five years too early. It is hardly shocking that when you anoint an ordinary, profusely overrated human being with a lofty status of unheard of proportions, that that teleprompter addicted goofball will attempt to expand his “brilliance” through an unprecedented series of unheard of abuses of power. This week we have four scandals brewing that now officially make “Tricky Dick” look like an altar boy. Even that politically biased loudmouth Carl Bernstein is crying enough already. Carl Bernstein railing against Barry Soetoro? I never thought I’d see the day.
Just a couple of days ago I suggested that Obama and Hillary may have intentionally withheld aid to Ambassador Stevens in a lame attempt to get rid of an embarrassing and budding political problem whereby both were running arms from Libya to Syria, thus giving aid to Al Qaeda. I would have never imagined that in two days this now clearly mild reach has been thoroughly upstaged by three other scandals. Yes, that’s right, it is now a total of four terrible events in less than a week. We have Benghazi revived, setting the IRS upon political rivals, tapping the phones of reporters at the AP – more than 100 reporters – and my personal favorite that truly reveals the president’s real nature – His photo appearing next to “Dr. Kermit Gosnell” in nearly every front page article in the nation, on this convicted abortion murderer. It was the president’s “fine” work on fetal survival rights while an Illinois senator that paved the way for the behavior of “Dr. Gosnell”.
We are clearly a nation in decline. What matters most to most – the economy – is in such bad shape due to the president and his dupe Bernanke’s policy of quantitative easing, that we are on the verge of losing the dollar as the world’s currency reserve. If this happens and it may soon, we will remember these truly sad days as “the good old days”. The phony pied pier has finally been exposed. Perhaps we still have time to repair the damage.

Last week a hearing has finally begun on what really happened at the Benghazi debacle. Normally I would predict that the left ridden press and Democratic opposition would quickly brush away this inquiry, but this time the issues and evidence are far more troubling and voluminous. Almost simultaneously, United Nations lead investigator, Carla del Ponte on May 6th, 2013 declared that Syrian rebel forces, not Syrian government forces as proclaimed in US government propaganda circles, have used the deadly chemical weapon, sarin gas, in the battlefield. How did Al Qaeda backed Syrian rebels suddenly get their hands on chemical weapons? It is true that the Syrian government does possess chemical weapons, but it is generally accepted that this cache is heavily guarded. There is one other place in the region well known to harbor chemical weapons – Libya and the late Muammar Gaddafi. Inspectors have stated that these weapons that Gaddafi possessed were intact after the uprising that led to his downfall. Who was in control of these chemical weapons in Libya? It is undeniable that Ambassador Stevens, at the direction of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama was running arms through Libya to the rebels in Syria based on several articles including the New York Times. It is beyond any reasonable doubt, as proven in this instance, that elements controlled by Al Qaeda will promptly use the most deadly weapons available to them. Al Qaeda then in possession of nuclear weapons is a truly sobering thought. The fact that sarin gas was recently used in Syria by Al Qaeda is a deadly serious issue. Knowing the willingness of Al Qaeda to act quickly when given the right materials, calls into question the timeline of the death of Ambassador Stevens and the use of sarin gas in the battlefield only a few months later. Did Mr. Stevens possess or know where this sarin gas was being kept? The now well known arms running to Syria from Libya was beginning to be a political albatross for the president and his administration. In addition, the fact that the myth of the “Arab Spring” was clearly being co-opted by Al Qaeda was becoming apparent even to regular Americans. The bottom line is that shortly after the murder of Mr. Stevens, Al Qaeda is using chemical weapons in Syria, despite US government claims to the contrary.
I must credit Michael Savage and Maria Grever for the above title, but this title also relates to my earlier piece on the real background of Hillary Clinton. Though the president has no trouble claiming credit for the apprehension of the “King of Al Qaeda’, Osama bin Laden and has executed many Al Qaeda operatives throughout the Middle East using drones, why did he give the order to stand down when a request was made by Mr. Stevens for help as Al Qaeda was attacking the diplomatic facility in Benghazi? The evidence is clear that Ambassador Stevens was killed and then shortly thereafter Al Qaeda used sarin gas in Syria. It is a national security issue to get to the bottom of how this was allowed to happen. Was the gun running using Mr. Stevens becoming a major liability? Was this the reason he was not given military help? In getting rid of the evidence of their link to arms running from Libya to Syria, did Clinton and Obama unleash a pending chemical weapons war throughout the region? The question of whether this clear breach was a result of incompetence or intentional evil overreaching must be gotten to the bottom of. Jerry Zeifman would likely conclude, it’s about time.

A few years ago, I handed Carl Paladino a copy of my book, Government Schools Are Bad for Your Kids. I guess he didn’t read it since he launched a huge effort to take over the school board this year by running and sponsoring candidates.
Government schools are the primordial progressive institution, inspired by proto-progressive ideas even before there was a formal progressive movement.
I am always amazed at how hard conservatives like Carl work to make failed progressive programs like the schools work. They hate socialized medicine and want it abolished but they send their kids to socialized schools and complain when they don’t work. Duh!
I will explore the reasons if my new book on the subject ever gets written. Alas, there is little leisure time anymore in Obamerica.
Briefly, conservatism isn’t an independent coherent ideology like libertarianism. Rather, it’s a reaction to progressivism. Since this has been a progressive country for 100 years, most conservatives have subliminally absorbed many progressive ideas or instincts.
Thus, the notion that we can fix the evil institution of the daytime juvenile detention center run by liberal Democrat union members.
Good luck with that Carl.
Remember what old Ayn said, “A is A.”
Government schools suck big-time, always have and always will.

I didn’t write the opening phrase, it is taken from an article that appeared in the Buffalo News. The article outlines the heavy subsidization occurring to re-engineer life in Buffalo.
It is based on the heavily subsidized medical corridor, the heavily subsidized public transportation system and housing developments that no doubt benefit from subsidy/tax breaks.
Of course people will move there. Taxpayers will be subsidizing their housing, jobs and transportation. If people really wanted to live like this, taxpayer money would not need to be dangled like a carrot.
In my opinion, this whole article sounds like the Stepfordization of Buffalo. I pity the people who give up their freedom and live according to the whims of government. I also pity the people, most of us, who have to pay for it.
“This is how you force culture change,” Enstice said. “We’re actually doing it.”
That quote says it all.

We are led to believe that without government, there would be no justice when disputes arise. However, it has never been shown that with government courts there would be justice. See my essay on the subject here. It is merely assumed that, because that is the stated purpose of government courts, they are capable of dispensing justice and do in fact do so. To call that a bad argument would be too kind since it’s not an argument at all but the absence of an argument.
One of the things I do in my law practice is represent defendants in post-conviction, post-appeal proceedings who have not been given justice in the government courts. There is little money in this work. The work is complex, time-consuming and usually ends in failure. One of my clients a few years back was Valentino Dixon, who filed suit in federal court for a review of his murder conviction in Buffalo in 1992. There were numerous good issues raised but the main one was that another man had committed the crime and in fact confessed to it. Unfortunately, thanks to the GOP Congress and Bill Clinton, the ancient right of habeas corpus was restricted in the late 90′s. A one year statute of limitations was added. Dixon was not able to file in time and the court dismissed his case.
Thanks to the new law, the case was never heard by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals either.
However, Valentino never stopped fighting to clear his name and he found a creative way to bring attention to his cause, drawing pictures of golf courses. Long story short, Golf Digest wrote about his case prompting the Golf Channel to take note. On Tuesday night at 10:30pm (ET), Jimmy Roberts’ new show In Play, will feature a segment about Valentino. This was a major production which involved two days of filming interviews inside Attica and a day interviewing witnesses and lawyers in Buffalo. DA Chris Belling and I were interviewed by Roberts a few months back.
I highly recommend this show if you get the Golf Channel. Watch it online later if not.
(Another segment involves an interview with Arnold Palmer.)

I want to talk today about some things they don’t teach in government school and that the lying progressive politicians won’t tell you.
The right to bear arms is a natural right of the individual. It wasn’t and isn’t granted by the government or the Constitution or some slimy politician any more than your right to breathe comes from the government. If you have the right to life, then you must have the means to defend that life against those who would stop you from breathing or who would turn you into a slave or a laboratory rat, which, judging from current trends, appears to be about where we are headed in this country.
We live under the most powerful government that ever existed and it’s getting stronger, bigger and more powerful every week as new laws are passed taking over more and more aspects of life that used to be free. There is no literally no aspect of life, no matter how trivial or formerly private that progressive politicians do not have designs on. Little League football, the size of soft drinks, or what you say on Twitter about your government school jailers.
These days, there is no aspect of your life, liberty or property or family life that is absolutely secure against this crazed progressive onslaught.
That is why we must resist this current gun grab by all means the Founding Fathers sanctioned in the Declaration of Independence including the right to alter or abolish a government destructive to our liberties. That’s right, Governor, abolishing this government is on the table.
Now, these days, those words in the Declaration are ignored or edited out when politicians quote the document. Rather, the phrase “all men are created equal” is offered up as some sort of Marxist balderdash about the state making us all equal. The meaning of that phrase is clear, however. We are all equal in natural rights such as liberty which precludes any form of progressivism, socialism or Marxism. Sorry Barack!
But consider this. Isn’t the right to bear arms implied in the right of revolution that is proclaimed in the founding document of our nation? Of course it is. Good luck fighting a revolution against a state that can send a drone to your house and make you disappear when all you have to fight back is a squirt gun.
Not only is the right to bear arms implied in our founding document, but the actual start of the revolution was an act of resistance against British gun control at Lexington and Concord. America was born when the Minute Men picked up their privately-owned muskets and formed a line of defense against government troops coming up the road to take their guns away.
They don’t teach this stuff in government school.
It is critical to realize that progressives never address the actual reason for the right to bear arms. Rather, they seek to confuse the issue by answering arguments for the right to bear arms that were never made. The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting, sport or target shooting, or collecting antiques and its main purpose is NOT to allow you to protect yourself from criminals although that is a secondary and important purpose. It is an undeniable historical fact that the central purpose of the right to bear arms is to allow the people to protect themselves against the government.
Now, why do progressives ignore or pretend not to know the true purpose behind the Second Amendment even though our side has been explaining it for many, many years? Two reasons. First, they cannot rebut the argument! History and logic both show that governments are dangerous to people when they get too much power, get too crazed in their ideologies and when the people are weak, disorganized and unarmed or disarmed. In the 20th century, 170 million people were murdered by their own governments according to historian RJ Rummel. The Soviets, a US ally, killed 62 million; the Communist Chinese killed 35 million. The Nazis killed 21 million. US ally Nationalist China killed 10 million. Japan killed 6 million, Cambodia killed 2 million and Turkey killed 1.8 million.
How can they deny obvious facts? Can they argue that Germans are so different from Americans—after all, they were an advanced Western, Christian nation—and after all, German is the largest ethnic group in America and has been for a very long time—that what happened there cannot happen here? That’s a bad argument. So they don’t make it. They could argue that the notion that the US state has never engaged in mass murder against its own citizens but we would say that’s a bad argument because our citizens have always been well-armed, so that proves our point. So that’s a bad argument they don’t make either.
So, instead of making bad arguments against the true purpose of the Second Amendment, they make good arguments against an imaginary Second Amendment that never existed. It’s extremely effective in a population short on critical thinking skills they never learned in government school. If government schools taught critical thinking skills, the first thing the students would ask is why the hell in a free country does the government have the right to kidnap children for 12 years, send them to daytime juvenile detention centers run by progressive Democratic union members and send their parents the bill, threatening to foreclose on their houses if they don’t pay up?
The second reason why progressives never confront the true reason behind the Second Amendment is even more interesting and even more important. The notion that a government with a monopoly of armed force could be an evil thing is abhorrent to them. It goes against the core of their ideology—that government guns pointed at peaceful citizens can create a utopia on earth. That can’t happen if the citizens are pointing guns back.
But progressives don’t want to admit that their ideology contains no room for privately-owned guns since there presently is too much support for the right to bear arms. So, again, they simply ignore the issue and try to confuse people by talking about hunting, target shooting and shot guns for home defense. By narrowing the scope of the purposes of gun ownership, they hope to be able to continually chip away at gun rights until all private guns are banned which is of course their actual goal. The more honest among them will admit, in response to our question—what do I do when a burglar tries to break the door down—call the police. Right, so they can draw a chalk line around your family’s bodies and call the medical examiner.
But that’s what they think. They really believe we would be better off if only the government had guns. That’s why they love to cite phony statistics that Professor Lott has refuted that allegedly prove that guns in the home are likely to be used, not for defense, but against one of the members of the family. They really think we’d be better off without any guns even though they won’t admit it. That’s why Cuomo’s treasonous gun law is not the end, any more than that weasel George Pataki’s gun law was the end in the 1990’s. Since progressives are utopians who wish to use the power of the state to make life perfect on earth, there is never an end to their efforts to grab power from us.
Here’s another thing you won’t learn in government school or out of the mouths of lying progressive politicians. Most crime in America is caused by failed progressive policies such as welfare, the war on drugs and government schools. By their very nature, progressives are unable to acknowledge the failure of their own ideology. So they use guns as a scapegoat to distract attention away from their failures and avoid having to change their policies. The data is clear. The rise of the welfare state led to the destruction of the family unit in minority communities. Fathers left the home and teenage boys joined criminal gangs as a perverted form of father substitute.
Government schools failed to provide what was missing at home and merely served as a recruiting ground for gangs and a distribution point for drugs. Local high schools in this area compete for the nickname, “heroin high.” The progressives’ war on drugs is an abysmal failure which merely sucks poor kids into a criminal and violent lifestyle once they realize that government school gave them no job skills and that progressive policies sucked all the economic vitality out of once bustling inner city neighborhoods.
Now, we don’t really know much about the cause of the latest school shooting—they are suppressing the lab report and other information. But we do know that several school shooters were bullied in government school and went back for revenge. Also, the politicians brag that they have made government schools gun-free zones, assuring mass killers of an easy target.
The state kidnaps your kids, bullies them, turns them into bullies, gives them dangerous psychotropic drugs, then leaves the students defenseless, and it’s the fault of the shotgun locked in your safe at home? That’s madness. School shootings are a failure of progressive policies. They invented the daytime juvenile detention center in the first place. Beyond school shootings, government schools are bad places for your kids for reasons I explained in a book and you should take them out anyway and soon.
I’m not going to argue statistics today but consider the fact that the folks in suburban and rural areas surrounding Buffalo are armed to the teeth but do not suffer from the decades-old crime wave and reign of terror criminals have imposed on the city of Buffalo. Case closed. Why should guns be confiscated from law-abiding people because progressives have unleashed a crime wave in America?
By the way, if you want people to accept your right to possess private property, guns, you better consider accepting the right of other people to possess private property, drugs, if they so choose. Liberty is seamless and does not allow for exceptions. Liberty is doing what you wish with what you own. Doing what you wish with what you own. In fact, the war on drugs has proved to be the major driving force beyond the war on guns. Same war, different name.
A couple more things they don’t teach in government school. Progressives don’t hate guns; they love guns. They love them so much they want to be the only ones who have any. They want a gun monopoly. Again, a progressive is a person who has this fantastic dream of creating a utopia on earth by threatening people with government guns if they don’t comply with their utopian schemes. The difference between progressives and us is this. They want to use guns aggressively, to make peaceful people do things they don’t want to do. We wish to use them only defensively, to stop a government that gets out of control and engages in mass murder, or systemically tramples the Bill of Rights.
The progressive state uses guns against us on a daily basis to impose their will on us. Yet, to my knowledge, not a single Patriot has fired a gun back. We have exercised remarkable restraint. So, again, the government schools, the politicians and the mainstream media lie. The true violent gun fanatics and gun lovers are the progressive gun grabbers, not us.
One last point before I close. I have seen very few African-Americans at these rallies. I don’t understand that. No group has suffered more under government tyranny than blacks. The federal government kept them in slavery for 75 years. Slavery is a form of slow motion, mass murder. After slavery, governments took their guns away and failed to provide police protection.
One of the purposes of the 14th Amendment was to allow blacks to own guns for protection. Blacks are more likely to be the victims of violent crime. Finally, if you study the history of the various mass murders perpetrated by governments, they very often are aimed at ethnic, racial or religious minorities as they were in Germany and Turkey. If I was a member of a racial minority in a hostile world, I would be a ferocious defender of the right to bear arms.
So those are a few points about the right to bear arms they don’t teach in government school and that you won’t hear from lying politicians or the state-controlled media.

There will be a Second Amendment Rally on Saturday from 11-1pm at Niagara Square in downtown Buffalo.
Assemblyman David DiPietro and I are among the speakers.
I will try to expose some of the many progressive myths and lies about guns.
For example, progressives love guns! And they love them especially when they are used aggressively, not defensively as is our preferred manner.

In a shocking display of losing her cool at a Senate hearing on her handling of the Benghazi disaster, Hillary Clinton, a trained, cool, even cold and calculating master politician, if nothing else, coined the above phrase, which will no doubt live with her for quite some time. There are any number of ways to answer this inappropriate question, but poor Hillary begs a thorough yet brief review of her “accomplished” career in answering this question fairly and accurately. Others have correctly pointed out that “someone” in the Administration directed the now discredited Susan Rice to knowingly lie to the American public as to the cause of the Benghazi attack. There was a method behind the madness though as evidenced by Obama claims that his Administration had solved the Al Qaeda threat and that our country has no external enemies. Incidentally, we all remember having the Bin Laden attack tape shoved down our throats literally hundreds of times. What happened to the Benghazi tapes? Of course this is all about power and allowing the sheeple to believe that the Al Qaeda strategy was a fraud, may have cost them the election. To think this crew would be forced to get real jobs. No way. They’d much prefer you getting two or more. So the solution? Al Qaeda is dead, dead and gone, irrespective of the truth of the matter.
But let’s go back forty years when Hillary was a staff member on the Watergate Committee investigating President Nixon. Imagine if the committee had the attitude back forty years ago that Hillary expresses today? Nixon would likely have served a full eight years. Considering that Hillary was adept even back in those days at fraud and violation of due process, that even lifelong Democrat, Jerry Zeifman claims Hillary should have been disbarred due to her unethical and fraudulent behavior, her classless and crude behavior today is hardly surprising. But in the ensuing years Hillary has refined this criminal behavior into a now legendary art form.
Rachel Maddow, that giddy idiot, was gushing foolishly about Hillary’s successful term as Secretary of State this past week, specifically claiming that Hillary was first a successful lawyer in Arkansas, apparently not wishing to mention her disastrous term on the Watergate Committee. She was so successful that she was forced to take what amounted to bribes from the outside counsel for Tyson Foods who enjoyed a virtually regulation free reign while Bill Clinton ran Arkansas and the sheeple there no doubt died prematurely due to eating contaminated chicken products. Experts reviewing “Hillary’s trades” concluded that the odds of her 100,000 dollar quick profit resulting from beginner’s luck to be 31 trillion to one.
Hillary was a partner at the now notorious Rose Law Firm where among her many cases she did the legal work on a fraudulent real estate transaction known as Castle Grande for Seth Ward, Webb Hubbell’s father-in-law and a fellow partner at Rose of Hillary’s. When questioned under oath about her work on this fraudulent transaction she claimed she didn’t recall some 100 times and weaseled around whether the Castle Grande deal was the same as another corporation which included Castle Grande in it. This theft of Hillary’s partners in crime personal piggy bank, The Madison Guaranty Savings & Loan, cost you sheeple four million dollars as a taxpayer bailout. Don’t worry, if Hillary makes it to the big house, these thefts will be in the trillions. It is truly amazing how two people see their behavior in opposite lights. Vincent Foster, another partner at Rose with Hillary, who went to The White House with her, couldn’t bear the guilt of their many crimes at Rose and this drove him to commit suicide, while Hillary hid the records of these crimes inside the White House. Can you imagine claiming 100 times that you do not recall whether you were involved in a felonious transaction if you in fact were not?
So you see Rachel Maddow was wrong. Hillary Clinton was not a successful lawyer. She was a successful criminal who has gotten away with hundreds of letter of the law felonies throughout her career, beginning with her unethical gig at The Watergate Committee and culminating with her prevaricating recent performance in a lame attempt to explain away Benghazi. If I were a bookmaker and was asked to make a line on the over/under of Hillary’s lifetime letter of the law felonies, the very same standard she set for Richard Nixon, and my goal was to even out the wagering pool, I would make the line: 300. The good news is these facts contained herein are a matter of public record. The bad news is, the new sheeple class will decide Hillary’s future.

My new site, LibertyMovement.org seeks to re-direct the energies of the Liberty Movement towards direct citizen action.
I had listed two concrete forms of direct action both involving government schools.
I just added a third, distribution of the study I did for Free New York–Economics in Five Lessons. It’s the best comprehensive short summary of free market economics I am aware of. That’s why I wrote it. Nothing like it existed so far as I knew.
Please go to the site for more details (scroll down).

That great “paragon of virtue”, from another corrupt US era, Hillary Clinton, late last week rushed from a Far East hype festival to help guarantee a cease fire in the flare up between Hamas and Israel and she quietly “succeeded”. But Hillary’s partner in crime, a thing named Morsi, the latest pride of Islam, seized upon Hillary and Mr. Soetoro’s “clever plot” to again fool America and paid himself overnight by awarding himself dictatorial powers. The Soetoro Administration feigned outrage at this power play toward further sheepilizing the sheeple in Egypt, but the Soetoro Administration provided the blueprint for Morsi’s raping the Egyptian masses with their rampant lying and continuing to lie to the American people in the United States on several fronts. The Soetoro Administration taught Morsi how to become a dictator – literally overnight. Morsi’s scheme, with help from Soetoro and Clinton is what the “international sheeple” deserve by believing in the most overrated invention of humanity – voting. Remember Jesse Jackson Jr.!!

Remember this week as one of the great moments in United States political history. A truly great American was revealed in the wake of all the more renowned losers and failures of our dubious past, of both major parties. Due to his courage in resigning his office in the Congress of The United States, Jesse Jackson Jr. will go down in history as one of the most important and relevant figures of our time. In classic Shakespearean “mirror up to nature” fashion, Mr. Jackson revealed the end of the relevance of the individual vote. I must quote the late great Gore Vidal when asked about the importance of voting, he replied: “No it only encourages em”. The Sheeple re-elected Mr. Jackson with 60% of the vote despite the fact that he missed more than 200 votes and was under medical care apparently due to his guilt in a criminal investigation. These allegations were confirmed with his brave resignation this week. No doubt several Republican and Independent voters voted for Mr. Jackson. Does anyone seriously believe that cloning Bernie Sanders would solve all of our problems? Virtually all politicians do as Mr. Jackson did, such as our present president, but only Mr. Jackson had the courage to resign. OK, so we have proven that voting is pointless and in fact detrimental to the nation, so what to do?
Though secession has been filed in all fifty states, too many Americans have been addicted to freebies for such a movement to work. All of the hard working individual Americans have to figure out a way to stop subsidizing those other citizens who have chosen the unlimited entitlement path for their unambitious futures. Perhaps some sort of “Direct Citizen Action” is the best response. We all know of anecdotes of abuse such as individuals in wealthy neighborhoods paying for groceries with food stamps and driving away in a late model Jaguar. It is also common knowledge that food stamp and welfare recipients repeatedly spend their funds on alcohol, drugs, cigarettes and buying lottery tickets. In the future when asked how many children you have or if you occasionally gamble, though the answer on both counts is negative, you should reply by adding two children to the “real” total and admit to occasionally gambling, though you may never have done so. The government will never solve these problems. It makes me laugh to think how easily it will be to pry these entitlements out of the hands of the “freebie junkies”. In reality, we may have already “out-Greeced Greece”.
You should have seen my shocked face when the Sheeple again responded to early press hype that the president-elect showed great leadership in his handling of the hurricane Sandy crisis, yet 13 days later we were still without power in Elmont, New York. I can’t imagine the powerful ambivalent feeling that many of my neighbors no doubt felt when they awoke in the several mornings after Obama’s re-election with a sense of profound satisfaction and pride, but when they opened their eyes had to see their breath in the bone chilling cold that Obama promised to resolve. Government cannot and will not help you. They will help themselves and friends, with your forced help, thank you. It is your responsibility to stop them.
Are you a Sheeple? Do you vote? Then you are contributing to the problem. Go walk to the nearest mirror. Take a long look. Shakespeare will tell you what to do.
