FDR Myth.. Not the savior of the econmoy

All throughout my History 1 & 2 and all my American history courses throughout college I kept hearing the same thing about Franklin Roosevelt, and I have to admit I believed what the teachers were saying. It amazes me how much I started to believe while sitting in a college classroom about politics. I never reversed on my morals, but when you have a history teacher that you think is so smart teaching you the liberal agenda day in and day out you start to give in. The thing that most teachers will tell you about FDR is how his policies got the U.S. out of the depression. It took me to actually sit down and study about his policies and the data that followed to realize that it just wasn't the truth. 
There are so many policies that FDR instituted that we could go on forever listing them and the effects they caused. I will give a few examples:

1933 Agricultural adjustment act- restricted production to keep prices high. 'Excess' output was destroyed or dumped abroad. While millions of Americans were going hungry, the government plowed under 10 million acres of crops, slaughtered 6 million pigs, and left fruit to rot. Production of milk, fruits, and other products was cartelized to boost prices under 'marketing orders' begun in 1937." which means they made it illegal to increase production. The reason for this was to keep production low so prices high but what they did not anticipate was the number of workers who would not have jobs because production was cut. So how would anybody buy the products. 

By the time FDR ran for re-election unemployment rate skyrocketed to 20%

New Deal policies made it harder for employers to hire people. FDR tripled federal taxes between 1933 and 1940. Social Security excise taxes on payrolls discouraged employers from hiring. New Deal securities laws made it harder for employers to raise capital. New Deal antitrust lawsuits harassed some 150 employers and whole industries. Whatever the merits of such policies might have been, it was bizarre to disrupt private sector employment when the median unemployment rate was 17 percent.

Class Warfare was implemented during this administration: It's the rich peoples fault and they should have to give more money to the poor people who don't have any. Sound familiar?

Roosevelt set up the biggest power grab in history with his new deal. He set up the biggest welfare state in history. And if not for world War II the economy would have continued to suffer. 

Now our president Barack Obama is making FDR's new deal seem like a pittance. He has increased government control, he has increased the welfare state, he continues to want to punish the rich(who makes jobs). All for control of the people and in the name of saving the economy. 

Henry Morgenthau, who served as Roosevelt's treasury secretary, admitted to a congressional committee in May 1939 (as quoted in the recent book New Deal or Raw Deal? by Burton Folsom, Jr.): "We are spending more money than we have ever spent before and it does not work.... We have never made good on our promises.... I say after eight years of this Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started ... and an enormous debt to boot."

Mr. Obama if you want to look at history and see if what you are doing works it does not. Just see what Roosevelt's secretary of treasury had to say. 

If we can not stop the policies being implemented NOW it will be hard to do so in the future. It's time to get out and vote these idiots out of office. Republicans and Democrats alike.

Shocker: 'Global warming' simply no longer happening

WASHINGTON – This may come as bad news for Al Gore.

The modest global warming trend has stopped – maybe even reversed itself.

And it's not just the record low temperatures experienced in much of the world this winter.

For at least the last five years, global temperatures have been falling, according to tracking performed by Roy Spencer, the climatologist formerly of NASA.

"Global warming" was going to bring more and more horrific hurricanes, climate change scientists and the politicians who subscribed to their theories said. But since 2005, only one major hurricane has struck North America.

A new study by Florida State University researcher Ryan Maue shows worldwide cyclone activity – typhoons, as well as hurricanes – has reached at least a 30-year low.

Two more studies – one by the Leibniz Institute of Marine Science and the Max Planck Institute of Meteorology in Germany and another by the University of Wisconsin – predict a slowing, or even a reversal of warming, for at least the next 10 to 20 years.

The Arctic sea ice has grown more on a percentage basis this winter than it has since 1979.

The number of polar bears has risen 25 percent in the past decade. There are 15,000 of them in the Arctic now, where 10 years ago there were 12,000.

"The most recent global warming that began in 1977 is over, and the Earth has entered a new phase of global cooling," says Don Easterbrook, professor of geology at Western Washington University in Bellingham, confidently. He maintains a switch in Pacific Ocean currents "assures about three decades of global cooling. New solar data showing unusual absence of sun spots and changes in the sun’s magnetic field suggest ... the present episode of global cooling may be more severe than the cooling of 1945 to 1977."

Climatologist Joe D’Aleo of the International Climate and Environmental Change Assessment Project, says new data "show that in five of the last seven decades since World War II, including this one, global temperatures have cooled while carbon dioxide has continued to rise."

"The data suggest cooling not warming in Earth's future," he says.

AIG Smoke Screen!

As I am sure you have heard that recently AIG Executives received over 165 million dollars in retension bonuses. Congress has been in a rage about this some telling the execs they needed to commit suicide. I understand the outrage over them receiving bonuses with the tax payer dollars. I have a lot I'd like say on this but there is something else I think you need to know about what happened behind the scenes while all this was forefront on everyones mind.
In the infinite wisdom of our new administration the United States Treasury decided to borrow 1 Trillion dollars from ourselves to pay our debts. The first question on most peoples mind is how can we borrow money from ourselves? easy we just print it!!!! So while everyone was distracted by the AIG debacle our treasury was printing tons of money... One of the biggest questions people ask is what does it matter if we just print money? Well here is the best analogy I can come with.... Let's say you are stuck on an Island with just a few people and lets say you are the only one who grows corn.... Since you are the only one who grows corn your product is worth a lot right... Ok lets say that everyone on that same island decides to grow corn now there is and influx of corn on the island and your corn is worth a lot less... The same way with money if there is more floating around the money already in circulation is worth less cause there is so much more to be had. This has happend before in 1923 in Weimar, Germany when the Germans decided to print more money to pay debts and it caused Hyperinflation, which means that the German Currency lost its value. So you would see people with barrels of money just to buy a loaf of bread. Also watch the stock market when the U.S. Treasury printed all that money the price of gold went up 50 dollars, because the investors know that the value of the U.S. dollar will go down because of the influx of new printed money... President Obama better start trying something else because his popularity is falling fast.......

Stimulus Loophole Gives 300,000 Jobs to Illegals

Well it has been a while since I have written anything and I missed a lot of good stuff to write about the truth is this stuff has really been making me sick. I have thought about just trying to ignore politics in general but it's like crack just can't seem to quit. Anyway lets talk about the savior of our economic system the "spendulous bill" that our wonderful democrats + three republicans passed to STIMULATE our economy. There is so much that I could talk about this like how it was loaded with pork but Obama claims there is none etc... But lets focus on all the jobs it's going to create for all the U.S. citizens. or not! In there infinite wisdom our Democratic leaders deleted from the bill that the employers do not have to use E-Verify which verifies if a worker is LEGAL or not. It is estimated that over 300,000 illegals will get these construction jobs etc. I really need someone to explain to me how this will stimulate the economy. The democrats think that the only way to get revenue is to tax people and yet these people pay zero tax(income tax). Then to top it off they send most of the money back to Mexico.... Way to go guys lets stimulate Mexico....  It is speculated that the dems removed this to placate the activist groups that want amnesty but are going to have to wait on it bit longer. It is time to stop pandering to the illegals and sure up our boarders and have true immigration reform. As Phil Valentine would say it is time to demagnetize the U.S.A.
