Nice Terrorist Attack

Posted by Troy on 14th July 2016 in Current Events

That’s Nice, France (pronounced Niece – seriously, I’m not a bloody troll).

I just have to ask: How much more will Europe take?

The Washington Post recently reported the upward estimate of women molested during New Year’s Eve last year to over 2,000 German women.  Then there was the Paris attack.  In both cases, the ruling class has said that they will not allow these dastardly attacks to stop them from brining in Syrian refugees.

I have to ask, what would it take?  Clearly, the leadership in these countries must be fans of the European Union.  As such, they love the idea of different cultures running roughshod over all of Europe, erasing national identity.  This is the reason why Britain left.

Of course, if you were a complete cynic, you would say that the reason why European leaders (and ours) love the refugees is that it is an influx of dependent voters, which is a great base for Leftists (Globalists are always Leftists).  Also, it is an excuse to spy on their own people and confiscate their own people’s guns.  Isn’t that a wonderful system?  Inject a portion of society that your own people do not want and use that influx as an excuse to take way the people’s freedoms?  Isn’t it also great that these poor refugees are never going to live in the neighborhoods of the leaders?  And even if they do, the leaders will be protected by guns which are denied to their own citizens.

If you don’t think this is the case, remember San Bernardino.  Two Muslim extremists got guns and kill Americans.  The Left’s reply?  Well, let us not stop being humanitarian.  We have to keep brining in Syrian refugees.  What we really need to do is get rid of guns so that these newcomers can’t get guns.  And don’t worry…we’ll just spy on everyone using the NSA to make sure you’re safe.  But if the NSA uncovers any illegal immigrants, we won’t punish them in any way because that would be wrong.  Do you notice the pattern yet?  Are you paying attention at all?

Long Live the Constitution!

European Troubles

Posted by Troy on 21st May 2012 in Current Events

Obama has taken to counseling the EU on their financial troubles.  He is talking Germany down from demanding austerity measures from Greece and other debtor nations.  Naturally, the person you’d want to turn to if you found yourself drowning in debt would be Obama.  The only other no brainer would have been calling up Teddy Kennedy for AA support (prior to his demise).  Yes, no one can tell you how to dig yourself out of a recession and debt crisis than Obama.  This much is clear.  Good going Europe.

To all those people who are pro-stimulus (Keynesian economics/debt spending), there is some argument for this.  This argument would be that cutting everything off 100% would be more damaging.  Fine, so be it.  What I’ve found in the study of macroeconomics is that it fairly parallels microeconomics.  As such, thinking in micro-terms helps some people .  If you are drowning in debt, taking out another credit card can stave off bankruptcy.  However, if you do not change your spending habits and turn your deficits into surpluses quickly, you are merely postponing the inevitable.  The European Union (and America for that matter) must start turning their deficits into surpluses and paying off their debts.  Europe really needs to start this process in 5-10 years, and we have 10-15 years to get our act turned around.

If Europe goes down, our stock market will tank, and Obama WILL lose.  This is why he is pushing for more deficit spending.

Long Live the Constitution!

Hyper-Inflation Boogie Man

Posted by Troy on 25th April 2011 in Current Events, Human Nature, Political

Glenn Beck is always screaming about how the printing of so much paper money means we are inevitably going to wind up like Germany in the 1930′s.  While it is true that printing paper money pretty much necessitates that we are going to see inflation, the extent of that inflation is unknown.  Also, I would like to point out a few things:  Germany is still there.  We will be too.  The world is not going to end.  In fact, America having hyper-inflation is much safer than 1930′s Germany.  We’re not going to try to take over the world, even if Trump is elected.  Also, if inflation hits, our currency might be weak against other currencies, but the Chinese yuan is pretty much worthless compared to a lot of currencies, and currently that’s the economy everyone’s afraid of (undeservingly so).  The fact of the matter is that we are struggling on the world market due to minimum wage jobs which forced all manufacturing jobs elsewhere.  Inflation will counter that and get us back to where we can compete somewhat on price.  Finally, we could benefit from some hard times.  We need to learn the value of resilience and hard work and helping one another as we have grown soft, dumb, and lazy.  All we really need to worry about is worrying about hyper-inflation and panicking about it.
