Very, very scary! « The Burning Platform

The federal bureaucracy, existing solely to perpetuate itself.

Would it be difficult to take down? Nope, just let the government lose the ability to borrow money, then out of order phones will be the least of our concerns.

Paying off the national debt by assessment, institute a balanced budget amendment with a two-thirds majority required to raise taxes and get rid of all tax deductions would right the ship. But then, these things aren't too hard to figure out. It would be possible to tweak the existing system if it weren't so perversely motivated.

Jesse Jackson, Jr? And from Illinois, at that!

Here we are, nearly 50 years removed from the Civil Rights movement of the 1950's and 60's. Race relations may have improved, it’s hard to tell, but civil rights have most certainly gone backwards since Bush and Obama. OWS is the most recent case in point.

Here’s the tin foil hat question of the day, considering the only winner in the 9/11/2001 bombing of the WTC in NYC was the federal bureaucracy and military contractors, does it not stand to reason it was they who perpetrated the bombing? It’s not unprecedented in recent history.

However, I’ll skip to the chase and clue you in on exactly who it was, it was Satan, being that September 11, 3 BC is the birthdate of Christ. How he accomplished that feat is an unknown. Suffice it to say, the terrorists won when TSA came into being.

The global financial crisis is promising to keep us on the edge of our seats until November, distracting us from our own recession. The Zimmerman case will be percolating until needed to incite race riots once more and usher in a new round of police state tactics. In the meantime, Jesse Jackson, Jr wants to pay more for a chocolate milkshake and make sure everyone stays on food stamps.

My, how the wheels are going to fly off the socialist double dutch bus, by this time next year as the reality of the debt ceiling meets federal deficit spending! How long will foreign sovereign funds be willing to park their assets in UST? The only thing holding keeping this runaway train from jumping the tracks is the feds ability to borrow money. That they are able to do it, is our own failing as a society and a nation.

Agenda 21 provision and Restaurant Carry bill

North Carolina General Assemby

Dear Sir or Madam,

I'm concerned about two issues, Agenda 21 and Restaurant Carry and urge you deny Agenda 21, or "Smart Growth" language in North Carolina statutes, and support moving Restaurant Carry (HB111) to the floor for a vote.

What is Agenda 21? An article in American Thinker titled UN Agenda 21 - Coming to a Neighborhood near You states,

"Clearly, smart growth plans will impact Americans' future choices in where and how they live. Furthermore, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other federal and state agencies may attempt to deny grant funds to states and cities that do not adopt smart growth plans."

"Regardless of political orientation, two indisputable facts remain. Agenda 21 is a direct assault on private property rights and American sovereignty, and it is coming to a neighborhood near you."

This is not an agenda which could possibly be in the best interests of the citizens of this state.

On the other hand, HB111 - "Amend Firearms Laws" is in the best interests of law abiding citizens by reducing crime and saving lives.

In this critical election year, and for all citizens, do what is right and send a clear message that North Carolina will protect the constitutional rights of it's citizens by enacting legislation to support those rights, and resisting external influences working to subvert those rights.

Compassion – Killer of Society? « The Burning Platform

Socialism doesn't work as an economic system because it's removes the incentive to work. Communism is a form of government where there is the party, 2% of the population in the USSR, who are the priviledged, and everyone else is on their own. It seems to work just fine until the population has had enough and cast off the yoke of bondage. Russia now has elections, and it may be enough that people have a vote.

Socialism still doesn't work anywhere. We're seeing the result of it in Europe. I believe it's a global war of attrition, and the US has a better than even chance of winning. So the US wins, like Stalin in Soviet Russia. He still starved tens of millions. The Trans Pacific Pact is an out of control federal bureaucracy's latest attempt to sell out the sovereignty of this nation and conspire with global elements to enslave and subjugate the population of the entire world. Sounds like a game plan out of Satans play book, with the State Department leading the effort.

SCREWED GENERATION « The Burning Platform

Whether or not boomers caused the financial crisis which began in 2008 and continues, is not the point. It is our system of government which allowed it, or rather lack of adherence to the constitution.

T'Bird was right is saying we inherit the system from our forebearers, who didn't stand up to the centralized power in Washington. It is the same debate as Jefferson and Hamilton, the same conflict which gave us the Civil War, and has consistently and progressively stripped American citizens of their rights. The federal government is the problem, for more reasons than can be stated here. How does one stand up to it? The individual can by being debt free and going Galt. The gauntlet has been thrown. Do we want to live in such a society? How do we reclaim it, as if it ever was ours.

Because the Devil is the god of this world (II Cor 4:4), our only hope and salvation is from above, and to destroy the works of the devil, between our own two ears, by putting on the light of God's Word, and eschewing evil.

Jimmy Carter was the last modern POTUS to attempt to reign in the federal bureaucracy. A peanut farmer from Georgia. Since Reagan, deficit spending has been on an exponential trajectory for one reason, and one reason only, profligate spending by the US Congress to the benefit of themselves and the 1%, at the expense of the national treasury. Because, they can read the writing on the wall, that the days of our current entitlement system are numbered, and they want to accumulate as much wealth for themselves as fast as they can, instead of doing what they should be doing, tweaking the system for the betterment of all, and forging a sustainable economic system, even at their own expense.
