Flunking Econ 101, Name Callers and BHO’s Service to America

Written by Allan Erickson on February 18, 2013

MH900422581The keys to economic recovery are as they have always been: extract things out of the ground or out of the creative minds of free people, make quality things people want, and sell them at a fair price with decent margin to fuel growth and reinvestment. Encourage all this by keeping government limited, low taxation, reasonable regulation, solid currency, low, if any, debt, intelligent trade policy, management/employee cooperation, sane and self-sufficient energy policy.

Obama’s solution: government spending on useless jobs, wasteful “investments” in enterprises that fail, high taxes, exploding debt, destructive regulation, printing funny money, self-defeating energy and trade policies, energy policy devised by hippies, antagonism between labor and management, government takeovers, socialized medicine that bankrupts the country, crony capitalism, fraudulent stimulus, bailouts, quantitative easing, waste resources on the phony climate change crisis, devising other ways to spread the wealth globally, and the latest genius move, raising the minimum wage.

One works. The other doesn’t. It’s not rocket surgery.

Paul Krugman calling Rubio a “Zombie” is yet another example of the bankruptcy of the Left.  Paul is pleased to present himself as nothing more than a propagandist for the regime.  Bereft of a cogent argument, Krugman relies on demonization, the last resort of ideologues who’ve run out their story line to its tragic end. 

Here is a man who has spent his entire professional life preaching a lie.  When his economic theories are shown miserable failures, his only recourse is to lower himself to mere name calling, like a grade school child. 

Never forget this is the genius who continues to believe massive deficit spending is the economic cure-all, a man who actually denies the contributions of Fannie and Freddie to the collapse of the housing market and subsequent financial chaos. Scoundrels, when found out, look to distract attention.  It is clearly laughable watching Krugman call Rubio a “Zombie”, when in truth, Krugman’s glaring deficiencies make Rubio look all the more brilliant.

Take Obama, Holder, Sharpton, J. Jackson, Farrakhan, Shabazz, J. Wright, Jamie Foxx, Harry Belafonte, and Danny Glover, multiply by 1000, and they still couldn’t approach the intelligence and integrity of Dr. Benjamin Carson. With God it’s usually one against a thousand, David versus Goliath, 300 against 10,000, impossible odds, all to glorify His name when the miracle is accomplished.
If Obama’s violations of the Constitution and our God-given rights provokes renewed awareness of the principles that made ours a great nation, then Obama will have provided at least one service.

Such a hardworking man must be due for another expensive, extended vacation paid for by the taxpayers.
There is only one reason a government seeks disarming its citizens, and it isn’t to protect them.
