THE REAL STATE OF THE UNION « The Burning Platform

Does anyone know if the minimum wage increase for federal workers and contractors triggers wage increases for union employees whose wages are tied to the minimum wage?

If so, it would be an act of war against the American people with a big middle finger.

I doubt that anyone would disagree that public sector spending has replaced private investment. Which makes Obama’s executive order not only unconstitutional, but bad policy. That is, unless we want a centrally planned global economy, which seems to be the direction we’re headed.

When collapse occurs, whether imminently, as indicated by the currency controls put in place this week in China, Russia, and the UK, or further down the road when US public sector spending simply overwhelms it’s ability to borrow and spend, it will be proof enough that one cannot centrally plan a social order, which is at the heart of a sustainable economy. There are just too many people who hate the US, but want it’s prosperity. The US is the freest county in the world, in spite of all that has happened since 9/11. Unfortunately, because of the Patriot Act, NDAA, FIA, and others, acts named curiously opposite of what is intended by the act, the potential is there for the US to reverse course.

In fact, it is the US federal government which has infringed upon individual freedom more so than any other institution the world has ever known, in sheer scope alone starting with the American indigenous population. The motivation for most of the infringement is personal gain for politicians and bureaucrats, which would be commonly referred to as corruption.

A corrupt government ceases to be representative of the people, and as such should be resisted at every turn.

I liked the Republican rebuttal last night, didn’t get to see all of it, but I find it a bit disingenuous, as well, given the speakers willingness to throw the American people under the bus in the name of corporate interests.

I would like to see every penny of Tarp 1 and 2 clawed back, as well as every dime earned by banks borrowed at zero percent interest from the Fed, and every dollar borrowed from future generations of American citizens, and the 1 percent prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law as is being done in Iceland as we speak. I didn’t read about that in the MSM.

The Information Age has to mean something more than an opportunity for Satan to gain a further stranglehold over that which God created.
