●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.
Recently, I saw an article in the Washington Post about President Obama’s attempt to make immigration somewhat fairer and less onerous. I’m posting here, not the article, but some of the comments that followed the article.
The purpose of posting these comments is to provide amusement for my sane readers and to provide talking points for those a bit addled.
I want to stress that these comments are by real right-wing, religious, compassionate, generous American patriots, who subscribe to: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
Any misspellings are their own. I just cut and paste.
We the people are tired of Obamas communist executive orders. It’s time for we the people to rise up against tyranny and indict, convict and execute Obamama as called for by law. This tyranny shall not stand..enough is enough..
If you are from Latin America and you promise to vote for a Democrat you will be granted amnesty immediately; otherwise you will have to go through the legal process of becoming a US citizen.
There is only one way to deal with the current US immigration problem with illegals-DEPORT THEM! They are ILLEGAL-what part of that is anyone missing??!! If they want to be in the US they should follow the rules-apply in Mexico City and pay all the fees associated with a legal visa. It’s outrageous that the President of the USA thinks he can just give them all a blanket ‘welcome to the US even though you’re here illegally’ when there are jobless Americans who are losing their homes and watching their children go to bed hungry every night. Outrageous.
The American People, the same American People who are being demonized for legally owning firearms, will be expected to pay for their medical care and their medical bills. It seems that the worst thing one can be in the United States today is a citizen. The president obviously has a word that refers to us, and that word is ‘SUCKER’.
Even if a successful bill is formed, Obama will torpedo it by insisting that border security enforcement provisions be pulled. If a bill passes with such provisions intact, Obama won’t enforce them. He is lawless and is not happy unless the country is in chaos.
We already have laws defining illegal immigration. It is a crime and this crime has penalties! But I am not sure if politicians can read much less have the balls to enforce the law.
How could over 11 million people who are violating our laws every single day (including forgery, perjury on i-9 forms, immigration fraud, working illegally and identity theft) possibly have any respect for our laws and our nation? They should be the last people considered for any sort of legal status, not the first. There are millions waiting patiently in their home countries because they respect our laws. Those of the ones we should take in, not the ones that are flouting our laws.
11,000 more socialist, progressive, communist voters! Why is it that these Illegals deserve special treatment! Answer if they were here for opportunity vs a free ride this would not be a concern for this administration.
This is all about adding new liberal voters. If it is NOTall about adding new liberal voters, then let’s say fine, these aliens, who came here illegally — and stayed around fraudulently under the radar — can apply to stay, but they will be banned from voting for twenty-five years. That will make it clear, very quickly, what this is all about.
Declaring that America’s immigration system is broken, President Obama on Tuesday called for a process to allow the 11 million illegal immigrants in the country to apply for citizenship — and food stamps, and welfare, and voting (oh wait they already vote)
Why is it that the U.S. is the only country in the world (as far as I know) that allows “undocumented” (illegal entrants) to dictate our policy? My bet is that if an American went to Mexico and demanded that he/she own property in Mexico without exception, he/she would be shown the border pronto.
Sociopath-in-Chief has just put 12 million illegals in front of the highest unemployed black men in a generation.
I have an immigration reform proposal:
1. Impeach Obama
2. Impeach Feinstein
3. E-Verify the nation
4. End chain migration
5. End all social services for illegal aliens
6. Deport all illegal aliens
7. Secure the borders
“Once massive deportation starts and removal of all food stamps, social security, earned income credit, housing the ones not deported will either leave or wind up in jail. We have a thing called the Armed Services to protect out citizens from invasion and harm. It’s time we used it !”
These just may be many of the same people with whom you would like to have a rational discussion about the deficit, the debt, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, unemployment, guns, abortion, austerity and the gap between rich and poor.
Lots of luck.

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
