Despite the President’s proclamation today that “scientific evidence proves” that Global Climate Change is making the drought in California more severe, there is really only one simple and incontrovertible scientific fact on point:  When the oceans warm up things get wetter on surrounding lands – when the oceans cool down things get dryer on surrounding lands.

Over the past few decades the oceans have been gradually warming just a bit – part of the natural cycle, and so we have enjoyed an abundance of rain in California.  All the while, there were those who were beside themselves that the world was coming to an end because of “Global Warming”.  But, of course, they have had to change that to “Global Climate Change”, since “Global Warming” has been thoroughly disproven.  “Global Climate Change” has the distinct advantage that it is harder to disprove.  Anyway, since the Pacific has been cooling over the past few years, just as it did in the fifties, we are going to be going through a period of relative drought, just as we did in the fifties.

It’s really too bad that there is no such thing as global warming.  If there were, then we wouldn’t be having this drought.

Just another chapter in the continuing saga.  We have noted before that the current President completely fails to address the debt crisis in his State of the Union Addresses.  This, despite the fact that this crisis, this terrible burden, the creeping monster that draws ever and ever closer, is far and away the greatest threat to our wonderful country.  Action must be taken.  The sooner the better.  God please protect us from it being already too late. 

Instead of solutions to solve the debt problem, President Obama proposed more and more programs to SPEND money.  Some of them were just inane.  Many of them would be wonderful things to do IF WE COULD AFFORD THEM.  To be completely accurate, the President did mention one or two proposals that he said would “help to reduce the deficit”.  Not only is that too indirect and too little, those things that he proposed to possibly “help” would, in fact, hurt.  He knew this.  He said those things anyway.  As former Governor and Democratic Party leader Mario Cuomo said recently, “President Obama is a stranger to the truth”.

I was listening to Laura Ingraham (who I greatly respect) on the radio today.  She was interviewing a fellow who was telling her just what I have been saying all along – that Democrats never intended for Obamacare to work – that they knew it WOULDN’T work.  That was the plan!  The idea was to screw up the system so badly that the only way to fix it would be a giant step toward socialism.  That is EXACTLY  the Cloward-Piven strategy of “crisis creation”.  It is done knowingly, cunningly, and deliberately by the few real leaders of the socialist movement. 

But Laura was skeptical.  She wondered if it is really possible for the Democrats to be that “sneaky”.  To me, this makes the biggest problem we have today stand out like it is lit by torch lights at midnight.  Our biggest problem is with the skepticism of so many good people.  Of course, we are all aware of many of the conspiracy theories out there, and their corresponding crackpot theorists.  We look on such people with scorn, and we certainly don’t want to emulate them.  But, folks, that doesn’t mean that there is not a real conspiracy going on out there.  And this one real one is so, so well documented.  The Fabian Society published its intentions and plans back in the late 19th century.  Knowing that they foundation of their philosophy was that people are so slow to react that they can pull off their conspiracy right under our noses, they were so bold as to adopt a wolf in sheep’s clothing as their symbol.  Then, Professors Cloward and Piven gained fame in the middle 20th century by improving on the Fabian philosophy – espousing that the real trick is to CREATE a crisis and then to solve that crisis with a socialistic band aid.  In short, they devised a way to speed up the Fabian plan just a bit.  Then along came Saul Alinsky, President Obama’s real spiritual mentor.  He wrote the book on it.  It is called Rules For Radicals.  It explains the strategies in detail.

How then, oh how, is it that most people still don’t believe that this is going on under our noses?  God knows, I have tried to get the message across.  Well, right now I am not even going to ask you to believe me, nor even to read my articles on Freedomsite.US that try to explain the phenomenon and to persuade you.  But what I am going to do is to ask you to, at least, look to a few other sources.  I have compiled a list of a handful of web sites that each, in their own way, try to introduce people to this terror amongst us.  Since these articles are each written by different people, from different perspectives, and for different purposes, perhaps the muti-faceted view of the thing will make it more visible.  You can find the list by going to www.Freedomsite.US 
I was recently reminded of this short piece that I wrote a couple of years ago.  While it is (seemingly) not directly on topic for this blog.  In my mind it is relevant - so I thought I would post it here for your consideration.  Thanks for your indulgence.  Eric

Humans are so strange.  We want what we want.  But why do we want it?  What makes us desire such strange things?  We become obsessed over the latest craze, that passing whimsy.  We think we are going to die if we don’t get the latest gadget.  Then, most often, a few weeks later, we can hardly remember why we wanted that idiotic thing.  We throw away most of our lives in pursuit of things that matter not at all – to the absolute abandonment of those things that might really matter. 

Among the trivialities that we tend to treat as something that we can’t live without – something that is worth the effort to sacrifice for – is fame.  Myself, although I admit to having been tempted from time to time, I tend to recoil at the very idea of seeking fame.  The old TV show of that name never ceased to make my skin crawl when I heard an advert for it.  Why, I would always pause to think, would anyone seek something so empty, so meaningless, so devoid of any real accomplishment or contribution to the human condition?

Now, on the other hand, excellence IS something to prize.  To do one’s best, to make the maximum effort or, as Kipling wrote, to “fill each unforgiving minute with sixty second’s worth of distance run” – that is the real goal.  If we measure our worth by our “success” (by “success” I here mean recognition, fame, acclaim) then most of us will fail.  By definition, acclaim is for the few.  But that is bull crap.  The real success is in knowing you did what you could with what you had.  Be it raising a family, excelling in medical research, or being the best damned welder on the line, that is where true happiness lies.  Sure, if you do your best, fame might find you.  Some people are justly famous for their good works.  But most toil in obscurity, and that is simply the way of it.  On the other hand, most people who do achieve fame are vapid, insipid, stupid, shallow twits.  That is simply the way of it.  And that is why the pursuit of fame for its own sake is an empty promise.  Even if achieved, it will leave one feeling empty, and wondering why it seemed like such an important thing in the first place. 

So, my friends, I wish for you – do your best and be comforted by your own efforts.  Should fame come your way, don’t let it change you.  Should fame elude you, you are probably better off, if only you remember to remember that your worth is already in you.  All you have to do is do your best to use it.

Yet ANOTHER problem with the so-called "Affordable Care Act"

By F Eric Saunders
January 2014

Surprise, surprise!!  Socialists don’t understand human nature!  Of course, they don’t, or they wouldn’t be socialists.  We have numerous articles on Freedomsite.US talking about this problem.  If there is no incentive (or not sufficient incentive) to work, then people won’t work.  If you take money from those who earn it and give it to those who don’t, then those who don’t work will have less incentive to work (since they will reap the benefits anyway), and those who do work will have less incentive to work (since there is no point in working so hard if it is just going to be taken away from you).  Aside from the illogic of socialism, it is based on assumptions about human nature that are simply not correct.

But now we have yet another example.  (Almost every day we see another example, but this is a particularly good one.)  Among the many other empty promises, mistakes (inevitable mistakes, given the inherent incompetency of big government), and outright lies, do you remember the “promise” that a great deal of money would be “saved” because those previously uninsured people who would formerly go to the emergency room for routine health care would now instead see their regular physician and greatly lessen the load on emergency services?  That was one of the main premises on which the “Affordable Care Act” was based.

Now, I don’t mean to imply that if that “promise” had been correct, then the “Affordable Care Act” would have worked.  No, it has so many, many flaws that it never stood a chance of working.  But then, it was never intended to work.  It was and is simply another stepping stone on the Fabian path - one more incremental step toward total government takeover.  Dirty Harry Reid even admitted that.  Just after the “Affordable Care Act” was passed, he pronounced that this is just a step along the way toward implementing a “single payer” plan.  And, just like all such Fabian schemes, it will be so, so hard to reverse.  After millions of people are signed up, and then after the “Affordable Care Act” collapses under its own weight, how will we ever go back to a workable system?  Once again, instead of fixing what needed to be fixed, the socialists have thrown the baby out with the bathwater.

But I digress, the topic here is the effect of the new law on the use of emergency rooms.  Well, the early results are already in.  Back in 2008 the Government sponsored a study that showed that Medicare recipients use the emergency rooms more than 40% more often that non-Medicare patients.  But, once again, the Government ignored its own study.  Now, we are already seeing (3 days into the new year) a flood of new Medicare patients clogging the emergency room.  Of course.  While there are many Medicare recipients who are in hard times due to no fault of their own, many others are part of the chronically unemployed and unemployable who have no real desire or incentive to improve.  Such people don’t have the mindset, experience, or faculties to make an appointment with a doctor, and then show up on time to keep such appointment.  That comes as no surprise to those of us who have a basic understanding of human behavior.  But it is a total shock to those socialists who were SURE (despite the fact that their own study had already told them the opposite) that giving people insurance would make them more responsible and more careful and conscientious about how they made use of the health care system. 

Once again the so-called “Affordable Care Act” has proven to be just the opposite.  It is making health care more, and more, and more expensive.

A Lesson in Economics (Why do some folks find this so hard to grasp when it is really so simple?)

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. 

The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan”. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A…. (substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all).

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.
The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. It could not be any simpler than that. 

These are possibly the 5 best sentences you’ll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

My Damn Dog

My dog sleeps about 20 hours a day. She has her food prepared for her. She can eat whenever she wants, 24/7/365. Her meals are provided at no cost to her. She visits the Dr. once a year for her checkup, and again during the year if any medical needs arise. For this she pays nothing, and nothing is required of her. She lives in a nice neighborhood in a house that is much larger than she needs, but she is not required to do any upkeep. If she makes a mess, someone else cleans it up. She has her choice of luxurious places to sleep. She receives these accommodations absolutely free.  She is living like a queen, and has absolutely no expenses whatsoever. All of her costs are picked up by others who go out and earn a living every day. I was just thinking about all this, and suddenly it hit me like a brick in the head, Holy S#!t, my dog is a Democrat!
