I would like to congratulate our British friends for standing up to the propaganda and fear mongering and taking their country back.  I would like to point out that Obama’s speech to them in April warmed them that globalization hurts at first.  They are admitting what they are doing!

1 – We are different cultures and nations.  I want Brits to be Brits, Germans to be Germans, and Americans to be Americans.  I want our cultures to be what they are.  I don’t want them to disappear.  I like national identity.  Deep down, we all do.  If you’re in the south, you would hate for a bunch of Yankees to move into your neighborhood and start changing stuff up and vice versa.

2 – This will not affect the ability to defend against terrorism.  It might make BRITAIN more secure since they don’t have free-roaming immigrants and enforced refugees (etc) now.  If the EU is REALLY worried that Britain won’t have access to their security database…then give them access.  You can charge them a fee, make a treaty, whatever.

3 – The economic realities facing Britain are the same.  They have the same workforce, resources, supplies, and demands.  All this gloom and doom was meant to scare them back into line.  In a few weeks, things will return to pretty much the same as normal.  Britain is a good market, countries are going to want to trade with them.

4 – The EU was not a military compact.  That’s NATO, and that stays in place, and all parties have an interest in keeping it in place.  Also, the real reason we haven’t been seeing wars isn’t the EU.  It is because war has become too expensive among advanced societies.

I am very proud of Britain and it gives me hope that maybe we can turn back the tide of globalization.

Long Live the Constitution!

And the DOW continues to weigh in

The stock market always reflects all the information that is presently available and shows the predicted future.  Since Obama’s re-election (starting literally the very next day), the stock market has slid into oblivion.  It is continuing to skid, and it will probably do so for the foreseeable future unless SOMETHING changes.  The only thing that I think will stop this slide is if Obama moves to the center.  However, as ideological as he is, I believe this to be doubtful.  We are on the verge of a recovery.  However, I believe the very nature of Barrack Obama will prevent the recovery and send us into a double dip recession.  Stockpile your beans and rice now before inflation sets in!

Long Live the Constitution!

Obama Re-elected: This fact says all you need to know

The day after Obama was re-elected by the uninformed masses, something amazing happened!

The stock market, WORLDWIDE, fell.  The margins are different wherever you go, but they were all down.  Here in the United States, our markets (pretty much across every index) were down 2.25% or so.  Of course, a lot of the more informed people would say, “They were just selling off positions to re-position themselves based on his re-election.”  This fantasy involves ignoring that Obama had been the President for the last 4 years.  If they were re-positioning themselves, they must have already re-positioned once, so sure they were of his getting kicked out of office.  Nope, this is just good ol’ fashioned, “Oh crap!” selling.

What’s more telling, however, is that the 10 year US Treasury dropped 6.11% IN ONE DAY!!!!!  US Treasuries are supposed to be the most stable instrument.  Okay, so the value of the US Treasury bond for a 10 year period dropped 6.11%.  Question:  What does that tell you about the outlook for our debt?  People think that in 10 years, it’s not going to be worth crap.  Ouch.  Of course, what happens when the outlook for our debt becomes so bad that no one will hold it?

You elected him, America.  Well, half of you did.  Our half has to survive what your half did to us.  Be forewarned, when our debt becomes worthless, and we actually do have to live within our means, your free Obamaphone, birth control, and other freebies stop.  Medicare will stop too at that point.  Social Security MAY stop, or they will give you the option of moving into “free” housing with “free” food…just like in Soviet Russia.

To all those “social” voters out there:  When the Democrats had full power did they: Fix immigration?  NOPE!  Deal with gender inequalities?  NOPE!  Provide for gay marriage?  NOPE!  Legalize pot?  NOPE!  Get rid of the Patriot Act?  NOPE!  Close Gitmo?  NOPE!  Did they actually do any of the “hallmark” crap that Democrats love to give lip service to?  NOPE!  Gee, do you think all that talk is just to string you along and make you think that they have your back so they can get your support so they can go about doing whatever it is that they want to do which is rewarding their financial supporters and taking control of everything like health care?!  How about that!  What makes logical sense, don’t it?  Huh, you know, that’s what actually paying attention to what’s going on and actually THINKING about it will do for ya.  Give it a try.

Long Live the Constitution!
