Mitchell’s laws: The more budgets are cut and taxes inceased, the weaker an economy becomes. To survive long term, a monetarily non-sovereign government must have a positive balance of payments. Austerity = poverty and leads to civil disorder. Those, who do not understand the differences between Monetary Sovereignty and monetary non-sovereignty, do not understand economics.
You may think you know the most important characteristics for being President of the United States. You may be wrong.
Perhaps you think honesty and intelligence count. Not at all.
Or you might think understanding America’s past and concern for America’s future are important. Or having an understanding of the military and of economics? Not a chance.
What about a strong desire to help the under-classes — you know those tired, those poor, those huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of a teeming shore, the homeless and tempest-tost? Ah, who cares about them?
What about having a clear vision for economic growth? Solid plans to help people achieve “the American dream?” Consistency of message? Naw. Not important.
The single most important criterion (according to “Christian conservatives”) is the determination to prevent gay people from finding happiness in marriage.
Obama gay marriage endorsement mobilizes Christian conservatives
By Dan Eggen and Sandhya Somashekhar, Published: May 11
President Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriage is energizing Christian conservative support for Mitt Romney in a way that the likely GOP nominee has so far not been able to do on his own, according to religious leaders and activists.
Pastors in Ohio, North Carolina, Florida and other swing states are readying Sunday sermons inveighing against same-sex unions,. . .
And here, you probably thought that to maintain its tax-exempt status, a religious organization could not engage in politics. Laws don’t count for right-wing Christian extremists, except for the single most important law of all (the 2nd Amendment).
. . . while activist groups have begun laying plans for social media campaigns, leaflet drives and other get-out-the-vote efforts centered on the same-sex marriage issue. Romney could benefit from a strong turnout among evangelicals and other social conservatives, many of whom remain skeptical of his commitment to their causes.
“So many people were rather lukewarm toward governor Romney and were really looking for some more tangible reasons to support him,” said Phil Burress, president of Citizens for Community Values, who led the ballot drive that banned gay marriage in Ohio in 2004. “Then lo and behold, it just fell out of the sky when Obama came out and endorsed same-sex marriage. . . . We are going to make this our key issue: the attack on marriage.”
The National Organization for Marriage, a leading anti-gay-marriage group, lashed out at Obama after his announcement and promised to campaign against him “ceaselessly” in swing states.
As one can see, the single most important qualification for President is the desire to prevent two people, who love each other, from achieving happiness.
You of the so-called “religious” right (America’s version of the Taliban), insist that gay marriage violates the bible, and so should be prevented and punished. I agree. While gay marriage is not mentioned in the bible, male gay cohabitation is.
So, for consistency and for all our benefit, I publish below a list of other biblical rules we should insist every candidate follow. Obviously, we “religious” folk already follow these rules; otherwise we’d just be a bunch of mean-spirited hypocrites, injuring people for our own amusement. Right?
Leviticus 20:13 If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death
Exodus 21:17 Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.
Exodus 22:19 Anyone who has sexual relations with an animal is to be put to death.
Exodus 31:15 Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day is to be put to death.
Leviticus 20:10 If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife — with the wife of his neighbor — both the adulterer and the adulteress are to be put to death.
Bad news for Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain and just a “few” others.
Leviticus 20:11 If a man has sexual relations with his father’s wife, he has dishonored his father. Both the man and the woman are to be put to death
Leviticus 20:12 If a man has sexual relations with his daughter-in-law, both of them are to be put to death
Leviticus 20:27 A man or woman who is a medium or spiritist among you must be put to death.
Leviticus 24:16 anyone who blasphemes the name of the LORD is to be put to death.
Numbers 1:51 Whenever the tabernacle is to move, the Levites are to take it down, and whenever the tabernacle is to be set up, the Levites shall do it. Anyone else who approaches it is to be put to death.
Deueronomy 25:11-16. When two men are fighting and the wife of one intervenes to save her husband from the blows of his opponent, if she stretches out her hand and seizes the latter by his genitals, you shall chop off her hand; show no pity.
I should mention this last law is one of my favorites.
You shall not keep two differing weights in your bag, one heavy and the other light; nor shall you keep two different ephahs in your house, one large and the other small.
Leviticus 19:19 Do not plant your field with two kinds of seed.
27-28; Do not cut the hair at the sides of your head or clip off the edges of your beard. Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves.
Genesis 17:11 You are to undergo circumcision, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and you.
I do hope all you “religious” conservatives voluntarily have been circumcised. Don’t make us pass a law requiring you to do it.
Deuteronomy 17:12 Anyone who shows contempt for the judge or for the priest who stands ministering there to the LORD your God is to be put to death.
Deuteronomy 21:18-21 If someone has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. They shall say to the elders, “This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a glutton and a drunkard.” Then all the men of his town are to stone him to death.
Deuteronomy 22:5 A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this.
Deuteronomy 22:9-11 Do not plow with an ox and a donkey yoked together. Do not wear clothes of wool and linen woven together.
Deuteronomy 22:23 If a man happens to meet in a town a virgin pledged to be married and he sleeps with her, you shall take both of them to the gate of that town and stone them to death—the young woman because she was in a town and did not scream for help, and the man because he violated another man’s wife.
Deuteronomy 23:20 You may charge a foreigner interest, but not a fellow Israelite.
Deuteronomy 24:5 If a man has recently married, he must not be sent to war or have any other duty laid on him.
Deuteronomy 25:4 Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain.
Let’s get busy, “religious” right. There are plenty of biblical restrictions to enforce — usually by putting someone to death. Let’s clean up this nation. Put sinners to death. Follow the bible, strictly. Remember, you’re the Christian right. Don’t let the Islamic Taliban show you up.
And above all, don’t let anyone different from you, find happiness.

No nation can tax itself into prosperity, nor grow without money growth. Monetary Sovereignty: Cutting federal deficits to grow the economy is like applying leeches to cure anemia. Two key equations in economics:
Federal Deficits – Net Imports = Net Private Savings
Gross Domestic Product = Federal Spending + Private Investment and Consumption + Net exports
