Mitchell’s laws:
•Those, who do not understand the differences between Monetary Sovereignty and monetary non-sovereignty, do not understand economics.
•Any monetarily NON-sovereign government — be it city, county, state or nation — that runs an ongoing trade deficit, eventually will run out of money.
•The more federal budgets are cut and taxes increased, the weaker an economy becomes. .
Liberals think the purpose of government is to protect the poor and powerless from the rich and powerful. Conservatives think the purpose of government is to protect the rich and powerful from the poor and powerless.
•The single most important problem in economics is
the Gap between rich and poor.
•Austerity is the government’s method for widening
the Gap between rich and poor.
•Until the 99% understand the need for federal deficits, the upper 1% will rule.
•Everything in economics devolves to motive, and the motive is the Gap between the rich and the rest..

Recently, President Obama spoke in Ethiopia, saying, “Nobody should be president for life. Your country is better off if you have new blood and new ideas. I’m still a pretty young man, but I know that somebody with new energy and new insights will be good for my country. It will be good for yours, too, in some cases.”

What he didn’t say is that the lack of term limits practically guarantees criminality, sloth and nepotism, all of which increase with each passing year.

Consider my state, Illinois, the most corrupt state in the union. Of our last seven governors, four have gone to prison.

Illinois has the worst debt of any state, together with high taxes; our school systems are a mess; and Chicago’s racial segregation is extreme. Illinois is as poorly run as — perhaps more poorly run than — any state.

The state of Illinois does not have any term limits, though some individual cities across the state do.

Thirty seven states have placed term limits on their constitutional officers such as governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state, comptroller and treasurer.

Eight out of 10 of the largest cities nationwide place term limits on their mayors and/or city councils, while fifteen legislatures have term limits.

Chicago is one of those two largest cities nationwide without any term limits. Thus, we had Mayor Richard J Daley who held office for 21 years, and ruled king-like over a notoriously corrupt administration.

Later, came his even more corrupt son, Richard M. Daley, who held office for 22 years, before retiring in disgrace. (He sold valuable city property to pay for bribes to unions and others for re-election assistance.)

ILLINOIS GENERAL ASSEMBLY IGNORES CITIZENS ON TERM LIMITS

“It is a safe bet that the General Assembly will never pass a bill limiting its own members’ ability to seek re-election.” – Christopher Mooney, University of Illinois Springfield professor, term-limits expert

Overwhelmingly, Illinoisans support term limits. A recent poll showed 78.7 percent of Illinois voters support term limits.

Despite the overwhelming public support for term limits, only a few legislators have tried to use the legislative process to enact term limits. The legislature has failed to enact any meaningful term limit reforms.

Consider Illinois’s Michael Madigan:

He is the longest-serving Speaker in state history, having held the position for all but two years since 1983. He has been a member of the Illinois House since 1971.

Chicago Magazine named Madigan the fourth-most-powerful Chicagoan in 2012 and second in 2013 and 2014, calling him “the Real Governor of Illinois.”

Madigan refused to testify in the inquiry over his advocacy for more 40 applicants to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Michael Madigan had sought to use his influence to secure patronage hiring and promotion at the Metra commuter rail agency for two of his supporters.

More than 400 current or retired state and local government employees have strong political ties to Madigan. The former Bureau of Electricity in the Streets and Sanitation Department of the City of Chicago was called “Madigan Electric” by political insiders.

Madigan admitted that he is more likely to return phone calls from campaign contributors than from non-contributors. Of all the current sitting Democratic Illinois House members, Speaker Madigan has received the highest amount of campaign contributions from labor unions.

Madigan was founder and continues as senior partner of the law firm Madigan and Getzendanner specializing in corporate real estate property tax appeals, which has been accused of profiting off of Madigan’s position and power. Getzendanner and four other staff attorneys handle the tax appeals, while Madigan brings in clients.

In 2008 Madigan and Getzendanner represented 45 of the 150 most valuable buildings in downtown Chicago, more than any other property tax appeal firm, and more than twice as many as the second highest.

Then we have the Madigan family nepotism tree:

(His wife) Shirley is the head of the Illinois Arts Council. His oldest daughter, Lisa Madigan, is the Attorney General of Illinois. Madigan’s son-in-law Jordan Matyas is the chief lobbyist for Regional Transportation Authority, a deputy chief overseeing their Government Affairs Department.

In 2002, Madigan helped his daughter Lisa garner more campaign contributions in her run for Illinois Attorney General than even the candidates for governor that year. At one point, Lisa Madigan’s $1.2 million raised was more than all the attorney general candidates in 1998 had raised, combined.

The man has been clever enough to cover his back by installing his daughter as Attorney General, who not surprisingly, never has investigated her father.

How has Madigan achieved and maintained such control?

First, he brings home the bacon to his district. He is not elected by the state voters. He is elected by just one district, and that district receives the benefits of Madigan’s power. If you lived in that district, you would elect him. So would I.

Money flows to Madigan district while state dollars tight

At a time when Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner has frozen state spending and cut the budget, a $35 million state grant got paid in full last month that helps build a 1,500-student school in the district of House Speaker Michael Madigan.

Second, the lack of term limits has given Madigan plenty of time to build alliances and to create a system that increasingly provides him with corrupting power.

For a politician, length of term is in direct proportion to breadth of corruption.

The lack of term limits, which allows criminal fiefdoms time to develop, is the fundamental flaw in American politics. It has all but destroyed Illinois and Chicago and presumably many other states, counties and cities.

The primary argument against term limits has to do with experience. A politician gains experience through time, and limiting his time, limits his experience.

However, that does not seem to have been an impediment to the most demanding and important job in America: The Presidency of the United States. The reason: Each new President surrounds himself with experienced people. All politicians can do that.

Once installed, politicians are very difficult to dislodge. They do more favors and collect more money than any opposing candidate.

The whole notion of “Ruler For Life”, whether a governor, mayor, alderman, senator, representative, etc., is an open invitation to the corruption that comes with power.

In summary, the fundamental flaw of American democracy is the lack of term limits.

===================================================================================================================================================================================================================================================================================

Politics has no moral GPS. “Right,” “wrong,” “good,” “bad,” “compassion,” “belief” — those words have little meaning in the political circus.

The only words that count: “Win” and “lose.”

It always was thus, but far worse today, with the Tea Party zombies gnawing at the necks of the Republican faithful.

Even children are not exempt from their blood-lust:

Judge rules illegal immigrant parents with children should be released

Illegal immigrant parents and children should usually be released rather than held in custody, a federal judge ruled late Friday.

Judge McGee also ruled that the facilities Homeland Security set up to house the illegal immigrant mothers and children that streamed across the border during last year’s surge violate a 1997 agreement, and cannot be used.

Judge McGee cited “widespread and deplorable conditions” in the detention centers, which she said included cold cells, lack of trash cans, and keeping lights on at all times, potentially disrupting sleep patterns.

The amoral among us might say that these are illegals, so treat them like animals. The Americans among us might whisperingly mention that these are human beings, children desperately trying to escape the murder and rape Donald Trump claims to abhor.

Despite Bush/Cheney blithe assurances, torture is an un-American way to deal with any people, least of all, children.

“In light of the voluminous evidence that Plaintiffs have presented of the egregious conditions of the holding cells, the court finds that defendants have materially breached the Agreement’s term that defendants provide ‘safe and sanitary’ holding cells for class members while they are in temporary custody,” Judge McGee said.

“The court’s ruling makes clear that the administration should simply stop locking up children and their mothers in immigration detention facilities,” said Eleanor Acer of Human Rights First, one of the groups that’s protested the detentions.

Most of the attention from last year’s surge went to the more than 68,000 children caught at the border who were unaccompanied by parents, but just as big of a problem were the tens of thousands of children who crossed with a parent. Indeed, 38,845 children traveling with a parent were also caught.

Homeland Security spokeswoman Marsha Catron said they’ll take stock of their legal options.

“We are disappointed with the court’s decision and are reviewing it in consultation with the Department of Justice. We plan to respond to the Court’s order to show cause by August 3,” Ms. Catron said.

President Obama reveals two faces on many issues, this being no exception. One face is that of “Deporter in Chief,” as his administration has deported more immigrants — destroying more innocent lives — than any in U.S. history.

The other face is that of “compassionate protector,” as he has found ways to shelter and absorb many thousands of immigrants.

So, what is going on here?

It’s Politics.

The genetic nature of compassionate, “bleeding heart” Democrats is to protect the less fortunate: The “tired, poor, huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of a teeming shore, the homeless, tempest-tost”  — the people our best-known statue boastfully welcomes to America’s largest city.

But, since the unfortunate disinterment of the Tea Party, and its abduction of the Republicans, a shameful idea has dominated: Win at all costs; damn the people, full speed ahead.

So in what seemingly is political innocence, President Obama repeatedly attempts to play nice with the opposition, hoping that a powerful show of weakness and cowardice will encourage them to play nice with him.

It has worked exactly never, both in his international politics and his domestic politics, punishing friends and emboldening enemies.

The Obama administration decided that in order to deter those with children, Homeland Security would begin locking them up, rather than releasing them.

Secretary Jeh Johnson has said that policy was a success, and the flow of both accompanied and unaccompanied children is down substantially this year.

“The policy was a success.” Torturing children really does work. It prevents them from swimming to our life raft, and instead forces them to remain asea, where they will drown in torment and squalor.

Truly effective.

We have a bifurcated compassionate/cruel administration, which has resulted in the obscene picture of a Democrat administration torturing children in order to reduce the number coming here “yearning to breathe free.”

Is the world’s wealthiest and third-largest nation — a nation of 320 million people, a nation with the unlimited ability to create money, a geographically huge nation populated with immigrants and descendants of immigrants — is that nation unable to absorb a few thousand or even a few million people, whose primary crime is braving a hazardous journey to escape misery and to pursue life, liberty and happiness?

Lacking only a piece of paper with the word “Citizen” stamped on it (a piece of paper that, for no good reason, has been made ridiculously difficult to obtain), are these people to be sent back to torture and death, before being held here in deplorable conditions?

Is that what America is about? Is this who we are?

Does politics require us to lose our humanity, our special place in the world, our moral GPS?

Are we allowed compassion?

You regular readers of this blog know that ignorance of economics created the disaster now known as the euro. You know the euro nations voluntarily surrendered the single most valuable asset any nation can have: Its Monetary Sovereignty.

Because of their economics ignorance, the whole of the eurozone either is, or soon will be, suffering from austerity, i.e the loss of income, jobs, health care, education, housing — in short, the loss of a decent lifestyle that government is supposed to help provide.

Greece may be the most extreme example currently, but not the only and not the last.

We may shake our heads at the ignorance of people who would allow their government to surrender its most valuable asset, but we needn’t feel too superior. Despite the fact that the U.S. federal government retains its Monetary Sovereignty, and therefore cannot run short of dollars, we allow it to act as though it were monetarily NON-sovereig

We allow the government to husband its dollars like some penurious miser, straight out of Dickens.

Social Security disability fund to run dry next year.

The 11 million Americans who receive Social Security disability face steep benefit cuts next year, the government said Wednesday, handing lawmakers a fiscal and political crisis in the middle of a presidential campaign.

The trustees who oversee Social Security and Medicare said the disability trust fund will run out of money in late 2016. That would trigger an automatic 19 percent cut in benefits, unless Congress acts.

The average monthly benefit for disabled workers and their families is $1,017.

Think of it. A disabled person, too ill to work, receives a pittance: $1,017, to support his/her family. But that is too much for the politicians.

The typical beneficiary would see a reduction of $193 a month.

“Today’s report shows that we must seek meaningful, in some instances even urgent, changes to ensure the program is on stable ground for future generations,” said Jo Ann Jenkins, chief executive officer of AARP.

AARP, which supposedly helps seniors and other Social Security beneficiaries, spreads the Big Lie, that taxes fund federal spending.

It’s a lie, because even were FICA to be eliminated, the federal government could continue funding Social Security benefits, forever.

Just as the U.S. federal government never can run short of its own sovereign currency, the dollar, agencies of the federal government never can run short of dollars, unless Congress wills it.

In more bad news for beneficiaries, the trustees project there will be no cost-of-living increase in benefits at the end of the year. It would mark only the third year without an increase since automatic adjustments were adopted in 1975.

Separately, about 7 million Medicare beneficiaries could face a monthly premium increase of at least $54 for outpatient coverage. That works out to an increase of more than 50 percent — for outpatient coverege.

Day by day, month by month, the middle- and lower-income groups are squeezed, just as in Greece, and for no good reason.

The annual report card on the financial health of Social Security and Medicare shows that the federal government’s largest benefit programs are feeling the strain of aging baby boomers as they both approach milestone anniversaries.

“The strain” is another way of saying that more people are growing older, and they need the kind of help a 1st rate government is supposed to provide. Why else would we have a government?

There was some good news in the report: The trustees said Social Security’s retirement fund has enough money to pay full benefits until 2035, a year later than they predicted last year. At that point, Social Security will collect enough in payroll taxes to pay about 75 percent of benefits.

Medicare’s giant hospital trust fund is projected to be exhausted in 2030, the same date as last year’s report. At that point, Medicare taxes would be enough to pay 86 percent of benefits.

The Big Lie continues — the pretense that like you and me (who are not Monetarily Sovereign), the government can run short of dollars to pay its bills. It cannot.

Advocates for seniors say that gives policymakers plenty of time to address both programs without cutting benefits. But some in Congress note that the longer lawmakers wait, the harder it gets to address the shortfall without making significant changes.

Nonsense. It’s not hard at all. Simply acknowledge the federal government’s ability to support Social Security at any desired level, and while making that admission, get rid of the worst tax in U.S. history: FICA.

There is an easy fix available for the disability program: Congress could shift tax revenue from Social Security’s much larger retirement fund, as it has done in the past.

President Barack Obama supports the move. And acting Social Security Commissioner Carolyn Colvin said shifting the tax revenue “would have no adverse effect on the solvency of the overall Social Security program.”

There would be no adverse effect, simply because the U.S. government has the unlimited ability to support Social Security.

But why will Congress not admit this simple truth? Here’s the clue:

Republicans say they want changes in the disability program to reduce fraud and to encourage disabled workers to re-enter the workforce.

In January, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., suggested that a lot of slackers are on disability. Paul, who is running for president, joked that half the people getting benefits are either anxious or their back hurts.

And there you have it. The Republican party of the rich, spreads the cruel lie that disabled people are fraudulent fakers and slackers, who need to be “encouraged” to re-enter the workforce.

Note the simpering laughter of Republican Rand Paul, slandering those unfortunate, disabled people. As if life weren’t difficult enought for them, a liar like Paul has to heep on the scorn. This is the kind of cruelty to the afflicted one has come to expect from Republicans. 

Here is Doctor Rand Paul, who grew up in luxury. He received his medical degree from the renowned Duke University School of Medicine. His father also was a doctor, a U.S. Congressman, who ran for President three times. This is the privileged Rand Paul who sneers at the poor, the aged and the disabled, from his lofty perch on high.

If the retirement and disability funds were combined, they would have enough money to pay full benefits until 2034, the trustees said.

Or, the federal government simply could pay the benefits.

The Medicare premium increases would affect Part B, which provides coverage for outpatient services.

For about 70 percent of beneficiaries, premium increases cannot exceed the dollar amount of their Social Security cost-of-living adjustment, or COLA. Because no COLA is currently expected for next year, increased costs of outpatient coverage would have to be spread among the remaining 30 percent.

Translation: The Monetarily Sovereign federal government is running out of money, but the disabled and the poor have plenty of money. So cut federal spending while forcing the people who can afford it least, to pay more.

Why does the government get away with it? Because the electorate is ignorant of economics reality. The people have been brainwashed into believing the federal government can run short of dollars, and/or that any increases in federal spending will cause a Zimbabwe-esque hyperinflation (another part of the Big Lie.)

Just as the Greek people suffer for their economics ignorance, so to do we Americans suffer for ours.
