Blondes and Redistribution of Pies

Obama announcing that his administration will investigate oil prices is a huge joke, his policies were meant to give us high oil and gas prices. This is pure deflection of the most preposterous kind.


Some on the far left have gone so far off the cliff they believe that wealth is not created or destroyed (consumed), only distributed (by the market or by government). In other words they believe existing wealth is moved around, never created or destroyed.

This logical fallacy (lunacy) is not at all hard to follow. Let us say the economy is made up of pies. Since now wealth is "pie" these... let us call them "blondes" believe that pies are not actually created or consumed.

Therefor the bakeries are exploiting the working class by theft of pies value by producing more pies. So they want to shut down the bakeries and redistribute the existing pies "fairly" making sure that everyone has "their fair slice" whether they actually earned it or not.

Well, of course, pies are always being eaten in reality. Citizen A has to feed his kids but if he has a job he now has to feed his kids and feed Citizen B too.

Sooner or later you start running out of pies to redistribute and the desperate tyrant will have to find enemies to deflect the blame for their own policies (capitalists, imperialists, foreign enemies, domestic enemies, "price gougers"). They will make announcements to the people that pie hoarders and pie gougers will be made accountable, set up "Blue Ribbon Panels", investigations in order to distract the populace from the rumbling in their bellies.

All of this comes from the logical lunacy that pies are wealth in and of themselves, instead of the bakery (production).

Then there are blondes who think that labor in and of itself is the measure of value. Under this scenario cutting the lawn for 2 weeks with a pair of scissors is more valuable than mowing it in a half an hour with a mower.

Digging and filling in holes in the ground is worth what? In reality: nothing. To these blondes it's apparently more wealth-creating than the man who starts a business working at a desk.

There are many variations of blondes, one as dumb and insane as the other. All live in deep denial of reality.

I don't believe Donald Trump

I don’t believe Donald Trump. 10 years ago he flirted with the Reform Party, was in favor of partial birth abortions and apparently “gay marriage” and a big one-time wealth tax. It is an amazing conversion he had somewhere between then and now.

Or maybe he doesn’t mean what he is saying, maybe he is trying to be as extreme and clownish as he can to discredit conservatives.

Glenn Beck has shut up about a lot of things in an attempt to keep his job. Even Fox News is only a RINO network at best and the talk of getting his own channel is ludicrous, no cable system will carry it.

I don’t think we conservatives should be trusting anyone who doesn’t have conservative instincts or has to think about or research their position on an issue to have an opinion.

In 2012 we need a candidate who is not a go-along to get-along type (tons of those), or has to be pushed into a conservative position (Rick Perry) or is a “compassionate” conservative like George W Bush. We need someone who already knows what they believe and will not compromise on the basic, key tenets of conservatism.

Donald Trump doesn’t even come close.

Genocide in the Ivory Coast!

The Muslim slaughter of Christians in the Ivory Coast has been stepped up as more than a thousand bodies pile up in the streets. Tens of thousands sought refuge at a Catholic Compound and are now trapped there by the forces of Jihad, running low on food, water and medicine.

The dead, scattered across the town of Duekoue are mainly civilian men who were shot as they fled from the advancing Muslim forces. If these Muslims are following the script they will kill the men, rape the women and force the survivors to join Islam.

The reaction from the west? from Obama?

Well, they are supporting the Muslims. Of course.

Recovery.... not so much

As was predicted, because it's so preictable, the short term wave produced by "quantative easing" (inflation) has moved the unemployment number down a nudge.

That is a very expensive nudge.

Check the grocery shelves, the prices are rising. This is happening because the dollar is worth less than it had been. When the wave settles down we will find that QE 1, 2 or even 3 is nothing but a political gimmick. Your savings in the bank or under the mattress is now worth less, prices are higher and when it finally subsides unemployment will again be more than 10% if not more.
