●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 ultimately leads to civil disorder.
●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.
●Everything in economics devolves to motive, and the motive is the gap.
Sometimes an idea has to become so obviously stupid that even the most intelligence-deprived among us will reject it.
Unfortunately, with regard to guns, we’re not quite there, yet.
I’m not just talking about the U.S. Supreme Court’s translation of this simple statement: [“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state,] the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
(Some words are bracketed, because the U.S. Supreme Court believes the framers of the Constitution had some leftover words, and just tossed them in. Those words are to be ignored.)
Under the rule, “Bad law begets more bad law,” I’m also talking about the lengths to which the states have taken the Supreme Court’s bad law.
Georgia law allows guns in some schools, bars, churches”
By Devon M. Sayers and Eliott C. McLaughlin, CNN
Ellijay, Georgia (CNN) — Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed a wide-ranging gun bill into law (which) specifies where Georgia residents can carry weapons. Included are provisions that allow residents who have concealed carry permits to take guns into some bars, churches, school zones, government buildings and certain parts of airports.
Wednesday’s signing came at an open-air picnic area along a creek in Ellijay, in northern Georgia. It opened with a prayer, the singing of the national anthem and a recital of the Pledge of Allegiance.
As everyone knows, gun lovers are our most patriotic citizens. The proof: They pray; they sing the national anthem; they recite the Pledge of Allegiance; they wave flags; they carry guns. What could be more patriotic than that?
Deal said the law allows residents to protect their families and expands the list of places where they can legally carry firearms, while allowing certain property owners, namely churches and bars, to make judgments on whether they want worshippers and patrons carrying guns.
The governor said the law “will protect the constitutional rights of Georgians who have gone through a background check to legally obtain a Georgia Weapons Carry License.
Hey, wait a second. Why should churches and bars be exempt from the Constitution?
And if someone has passed a so-called “background check” (snicker, snicker), why should they not be able to carry a gun anywhere they want, including into Georgia’s Congress and courts?
. . . the version Deal signed Wednesday doesn’t allow guns on college campuses . . . except in certain cases.
WHAT??! No guns on college campuses, either? Why should students be deprived of their Constitutional protections?
. . . it allows guns in TSA lines at the country’s busiest airport, forces community school boards into bitter, divisive debates about whether they should allow guns in their children’s classrooms, and broadens the conceal carry eligibility to people who have previously committed crimes with guns.
While the bill says no one is allowed to carry a firearm past an airport’s security screening checkpoint, it allows guns in other areas, including “an airport drive, general parking area, walkway, or shops and areas of the terminal that are outside the screening checkpoint.”
WHAT??! No guns past the TSA lines on onto airplanes? Why not? If someone has gone through a “background check” (snicker, snicker) surely he should be allowed to carry a gun all the way up to the gate and onto the plane — to protect against terrorists and other criminals.
And why are criminals denied their Constitutional rights, so long as they have passed a “background check” (snicker, snicker)?
Deal also touted how HB60 would allow soldiers to obtain a carry license at age 18 if they’ve completed basic training and are either actively serving or have been honorably discharged.
“If they’re old enough to hold a gun in defense of our liberties, then they’re old enough to hold a gun, and they shouldn’t have to wait until they’re 21.”
As everyone knows, discharged soldiers are saner and more mature than other people, and always can be trusted not to shoot anyone.
And please, let’s not discuss PTSD.
Other notable provisions of the law allow hunters to use silencers and suppressors when the owner of the property where they’re hunting is aware they’re using such a device. . .
Yes, the owner of land is the best judge of whether a “hunter” should use a silencer. (By the way, when people use silencers, what exactly are they hunting?)
(The law permits) gun owners who have had their licenses revoked to apply for a new license after three years . . . and forbids police officers who see a resident carrying a gun to ask for their permit unless they’re committing a crime.
“Excuse me, Mr. Armed Man Wearing A Mask And Walking Into A Bank, I know you’re allowed to carry a gun anywhere, and I’m not even allowed to see your gun permit, so please, please don’t shoot anyone.”
Another provision of the new law allows firearms into any government building that is open for business and doesn’t have security personnel restricting access or screening visitors.
WHAT??! Why should guns be prohibited by security personnel, if the visitor has passed a “background check” (snicker, snicker)?
If the Governor of Georgia really believed that guns “allow residents to protect their families,” why should this protection be denied at airport gates, on college campuses and in bars and churches — and especially in state legislatures and courtrooms?
After all, isn’t that where residents need the most protection from criminals?
But wait. Deal addressed that objection.
The Capitol fell under a wider statewide provision that affects many government buildings, and it’s “a uniform carved-out area all across our state.“
So that explains it. The Capitol is a “carved out area.” Huh?
But, are local courts also “carved out areas”? We don’t know.
However, it seems likely, that Governor Deal’s brain, along with the brains of Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and John Roberts also are “carved out areas,” totally devoid of common sense.
But really, why no guns in Congress?
And when will this all become stupid enough for even the stupidest to recognize the stupidity?

Ten Steps to Prosperity:
1. Eliminate FICA (Click here)
2. Federally funded Medicare — parts A, B & D plus long term nursing care — for everyone (Click here)
3. Provide an Economic Bonus to every man, woman and child in America, and/or every state a per capita Economic Bonus. (Click here) Or institute a reverse income tax.
4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone. Click here
5. Salary for attending school (Click here)
6. Eliminate corporate taxes (Click here)
7. Increase the standard income tax deduction annually
8. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99% (Click here)
9. Federal ownership of all banks (Click here)
10. Tax the very rich (.1%) more, with much higher, progressive tax rates on all forms of income. (Click here)
10 Steps to Economic Misery: (Click here:)
1. Maintain or increase the FICA tax..
2. Spread the myth Social Security, Medicare and the U.S. government are insolvent.
3. Cut federal employment in the military, post office, other federal agencies.
4. Broaden the income tax base so more lower income people will pay.
5. Cut financial assistance to the states.
6. Spread the myth federal taxes pay for federal spending.
7. Allow banks to trade for their own accounts; save them when their investments go sour.
8. Never prosecute any banker for criminal activity.
9. Nominate arch conservatives to the Supreme Court.
10. Reduce the federal deficit and debt
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:
1. Federal Deficits – Net Imports = Net Private Savings
2. Gross Domestic Product = Federal Spending + Private Investment and Consumption – Net Imports
THE RECESSION CLOCK
Vertical gray bars mark recessions.
As the federal deficit growth lines drop, we approach recession, which will be cured only when the lines rise. Federal deficit growth is absolutely, positively necessary for economic growth. Period.
