Mitchell’s laws:
●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.

The “religious” right never stops warring against something or someone: Drugs, gays, women, blacks, browns, the poor, the sick, the homeless, the unemployed — these compassionate folks love fighting wars, especially against underdogs.

Currently, the war is against undocumented children.

House task force to recommend National Guard on border, faster deportations

House Republicans will call Wednesday for decisive action to end the border crisis, proposing a deployment of National Guard troops and accelerated deportation hearings for unaccompanied children inundating the U.S., said a Capitol Hill aide familiar with the plan.

Last I heard, there were about 50,000 undocumented children entering our nation of more than 300,000,000 — an average of 1,000 children per state. That’s an “inundation” of less than .00002 (two hundreths of one percent) of our population.

Looked at another way, last year 4 million children were born in the U.S. The undocumented children would add about 1 percent to that total.

Some indundation.

Is our Monetarily Sovereign nation, with our huge population and our unlimited ability to pay any bill of any size — at no cost to anyone — unable to care for these children?

Several of the recommendations focus on expediting the immigration hearing process for the unaccompanied alien children. Otherwise, most of them could stay in the U.S. for months or years before facing immigration judges

Oh, horrors! The children might stay here for months or years! They might even grow up here!! They might even become (ugh) neighbors.

So, indeed, send in the National Guard to prevent this dangerous situation, because . . . uh, well, . . . they’re mostly brown, aren’t they?

Republicans close to the task force said they were bracing for criticism from Democrats and immigration rights advocates who would accuse them of “militarizing” the border.

It’s like this. We don’t want to militarize the border. We just want to send in the National Guard to arrest children. See the difference?

Conservatives . . . have demanded that the administration seal the border before addressing other immigration issues.

The Obama administration is looking for facilities to shelter the children, while officials attempt to reunite them with relatives in the United States.

“Republicans have made clear that we support efforts to take care of these children, return them safely to families in their home countries and secure the border,” Mr. Boehner said.

Now fortress America must seal our border, a geographic and military impossibility and a national disgrace. Our right-wing President already has set records for deportations. What more do they want?

Future generations will remember with shame, that a paranoid political party wanted our population of 3 hundred million to crouch fearfully behind a giant, impenetrable wall (with guard towers and a “death strip,” perhaps?), lest we be “inundated” with children.

Is this the “home of the brave” described in our national anthem?

Rep. Boehner wants to “take care” of the children by deporting them to the horrors they risked their lives to escape. That’s known as “compassionate conservatism.”

Have these people no souls?

Monetary Sovereignty

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 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

Monetary Sovereignty

Vertical gray bars mark recessions.

As the federal deficit growth lines drop, we approach recession, which will be cured only when the growth lines rise. Increasing federal deficit growth (aka “stimulus”) is necessary for long-term economic growth.

  1. I’m all for immigration, but the process should be more orderly, safe and civilized. Of course, criminals should be dealt with, but innocent desperate people should be permitted to come to the U.S.. Encouraging people, and especially children, to traverse a dangerous sweltering desert, in addition to exposing them to dangerous criminals, along our southern border is cruel and inhumane. People who are against these immigrants, because they are poor or hispanic, are thinking about this immigration issue in the wrong way. These Immigrants only want to have a normal life, which they cannot get in their own country. I don’t blame them for wanting to come here – I would do the same thing if I were in the same situation. Weren’t the pilgrims, indentured servants, and others, dirt poor when they first colonized north america? Why can’t we let them have the same opportunity? I believe that the U.S. is very capable of absorbing and integrating these immigrants. The U.S. is probably the only country in which people risk their lives to immigrate to.


    1. kbar325 says: “The U.S. is probably the only country in which people risk their lives to immigrate to.”

      Well, to be fair, there are massive waves of refugees that die trying to make it to Europe and Australia too. Large numbers of African refugees go to Israel, which keeps them in desert camps. Some of the Central American migrants go to Nicaragua. There are millions of Syrian refugees in Lebanon. And so on. All refugee journeys are perilous.

      kbar325 says: “I would do the same thing if I were in the same situation.”

      So would I.

      In Honduras, life has been totally mafia-ized. If you have any kind of business or store, or whatever, you must pay so much extortion money that it is impossible to run the business. If you don’t pay, then the mafia gangs will destroy your business, and perhaps target you and your family for elimination. You must go north or die.

      I find it utterly nauseating how right-wingers say we must deport these victims back to their hell holes, because allowing them to stay in the USA would not be “humanitarian.”

      We must stuff them into a meat grinder. Failure to do so would not be “humanitarian.”


      1. “Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel” Samuel Johnson.

        “In every way it has been the tyrant, the oppressor and the exploiter who has wrapped himself in the cloak of patriotism, or religion, or both to deceive and overawe the people” Eugene Debs.

        “Government could not at the same time serve both the profiteers and the victims of profiteers”. Are these children not entirely the victims of profiteers in their native countries? With regard to Central American nations where the vast majority of migrants originate from it’s the Wall Street profiteers and US State Department and their puppets who have created the conditions. As well as in Syria, Iraq, Somalia, etc., etc., etc.


  2. 1%OF THE PEOPLE COMING ACROSS OUR BORDER ARE KIDS and mkst of these are teenagers (not babies in diapers), however all of these people have been exposed to highly contagious diseases and being dispursed across our nation. That being said, the National Guard and militia are there with the purpose of preventing the 5 – 10 illegals that sneak across our borders while our Border Agents are distracted with the so called kids. We can help the world but not a t the cost of hurting our own kids and poor. As a note, my child’s school more than doubled in 1 month filled now with these same kids that just came across the border -packed in there like sardines. At some point we have to close the doors and put out the no vacqncy sign as America is a ship not an ocean and spaces are limited.


  3. Rodger writes: “Last I heard, there were about 50,000 undocumented children entering our nation of more than 300,000,000.”

    Many Americans consider this to be a “major invasion,” even though it is trivial compared to current refugee movements around the world.

    For example, 480,000 people have fled from Ukraine to Russia since the fighting began. There are over a million Syrian refugees in Lebanon who (based on my research) are now suffering more than any refugees in the world. (The USA is 921 times bigger than Lebanon, but Lebanon has 20 times more refugees than does the USA.)

    Australia gets 20,000 refugees per year. Italy got 62,000 refugees from North Africa in 2011. 103,000 fled from Somalia to Yemen in 2011. All war zones produce mass numbers of refugees.

    By the way, who in the USA has ever seen any of these latest Central American refugees, other than photos in the news blogs? Let’s be generous and suppose that 300,000 people have seen them personally. That is still less than one in a thousand denizens of the USA who have seen them.
