●The more federal budgets are cut and taxes increased, the weaker an economy becomes.
●Austerity is the government’s method for widening the gap between rich and poor, which leads to civil disorder.
●Cutting the deficit is the government’s method for taking dollars from the middle class and giving them to the rich.
●Until the 99% understand the need for federal deficits, the upper 1% will rule.
●To survive long term, a monetarily non-sovereign government must have a positive balance of payments.
●Those, who do not understand the differences between Monetary Sovereignty and monetary non-sovereignty, do not understand economics.
●The penalty for ignorance is slavery.
Thank you NRA for your valuable contributions to the American economy.
SALT LAKE CITY — The reaction to the deadly Connecticut school shooting can be seen at gun stores and self-defense retailers across the nation, with anxious parents buying armored backpacks for children and firearms enthusiasts stocking up on assault weapons in anticipation of tighter gun control measures.
The armor inserts fit into the back panel of a child’s backpack, and sell for up to $400, depending on the retailer. The armor is designed to stop bullets from handguns, not assault weapons like the one used in the shooting at the Newtown, Conn., school.
Ken Larson, 41, of Denver, Colo., already had an armored backpack for himself and persuaded his wife to buy one for their 1-year-old after the latest shootings. He knows the backpack won’t guarantee his son’s safety. But, he added, it was a worthy precaution.
Who would have thought? Body armor for tots. It shows what capitalism can accomplish. As for the economy, think of millions of children, all outfitted with helmets, bulletproof vests, backpack armor, add in some night-vision goggles (for night school) and you’re talking millions, maybe billions, of dollars.
Robert Akers, a Rapid City, S.D., gun seller who specializes in (assault weapons), said the rush of customers had transformed his Rapid Fire Firearms store into a “madhouse” and that he’s not actively selling the guns and has turned off his phone. “The price is only going to go up higher,” he said.
Now, you’re into the really big economic stimulus: Guns. Big guns, little guns. Machine guns. And ammo. Lots and lots of ammo. Hollow points. Armor piercing. Phosphorus. You never know when you might run into a suspicious person who needs to be dealt with. Remember: Only the survivor gets to tell the story.
Anne Marie Albano, psychiatry director at Columbia University’s Clinic for Anxiety and Related Disorders, said parents should convey calmness, not anxiety. “This is not serving to keep children safe,” she said. “This is serving to increase their fear and their suspicion of their peers.”
Don’t you just hate those lily-livered, left-wing, bleeding heart liberals? Instead of worrying about children, why don’t they worry about microscopic embryos, the way we religious NRA members do.
Anyway, the more fear fear the kids have, the better for the child psychologist business. Start the kids young, and they could go to shrinks for the rest of their lives. Major money, there.
Austin Cook, general manager of Hoover Tactical Firearms in suburban Birmingham, Ala., said the spike in sales since Friday’s shootings has been so intense that federal background checks that typically take five minutes or less are now taking up to an hour.
Damn! I have to wait a whole hour before I can start killing people. What am I supposed to do in the meantime? Use a knife?
Cook said about 50 people were waiting in line for his store to open the morning after the shootings, and that he’s since sold nearly all of his assault weapons. Now, he’s trying to find more distributors.
“I can’t keep them in the store,” Cook said.
It very well could be that gun sales are just the stimulus the economy needs.
But if you truly are concerned about the safety of your child, forget about that flimsy backpack armor. Go to: Advanced Protective Services. Here’s what they do:
”We stand behind our clients to ensure the utmost in armed security guard protection. We specialize in customizing a plan to fit your specific situation and location.”
What kind of parent are you if you don’t provide your child with an armed bodyguard (although I’m not sure “standing behind” your kid is the best way to protect him.) Don’t be so cheap. Spend a few thousand. Isn’t your kid’s life worth it?
Then again, why depend on someone else to protect your child, when your child can protect himself. Go to Guns for the Children. [It’s a joke, but with serious undertones. Do check it out.]
Kids in developed countries are at much more of an advantage when it comes to having quality weapons. In underdeveloped countries many kids are stuck using small knives or stones. The fortunate ones are able to get machetes. At Guns for the Children we are trying our best to provide quality and dependable arms and ammunition to children whose only wrongdoing was not being born in the best country in the world, the United States.
Hey, why should those foreign kids be be able to protect themselves, while your kid is unarmed? Get him his own gun to take to school. While waiting for a mass murderer, he can settle schoolyard arguments in a flash – a muzzle flash.
Finally, as for the half dozen, high powered AK47s you’ve stockpiled (and, of course, you’re looking for more), if they don’t protect your kid in school, and the armored backpack won’t really stop a bullet, and the armed security guard winds up accidentally shooting your kid, and your kid turns out to be a bad shot, here’s an excerpt from the Funeral Home Resource:
Pick out a coffin or urn and choose whether, if a casket, you want it open for the funeral, and whether you want a viewing. Also consider small touches like burying the child with a favorite toy, book or blanket.
Yes, those small touches cost money, but they really are good for the funeral business. How about including a little pink gun, so your child can stand her ground in the afterworld. It’s the least you can do for her – and for the American economy.
As the NRA says, “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” I believe it. My only question is, with the millions of guns being sold, how many are purchased by good guys and how many by bad guys?
But who cares, really? We’re talking dollars, here. So thank you NRA and other gun nuts, for setting us on the path to fortune and freedom.
And, may your deaths be ironic.

Nine Steps to Prosperity:
1. Eliminate FICA (Click here)
2. Medicare — parts A, B & D — for everyone
3. Send every American citizen an annual check for $5,000 or give every state $5,000 per capita (Click here)
4. Long-term nursing care for everyone
5. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone
6. Salary for attending school (Click here)
7. Eliminate corporate taxes
8. Increase the standard income tax deduction annually
9. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99%
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 Imports
