    J P Morgan’s Dimon: America ‘Almost an Embarrassment’ Newsmax July 17, 2017 Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co., the nation’s largest bank, unloaded Friday about everything that’s holding back U.S. businesses. “It’s almost an embarrassment being an American traveling around the world,” Dimon, 61, said on a conference call with analysts.

The Decline of The US Democratic Party and Rise of Socialist Demagoguery Out of It’s Ashes

When the country had barely learned to crawl, the Democratic-Republican Party was there.   It was organized by James Madison and Thomas Jefferson in 1791. The purpose of the Democratic-Republican Party was to stand in opposition against the Federalist Party in upcoming elections. The Democratic-Republican Party supported states’ rights and the literal and strict interpretation of the Constitution. They also prioritized financial and legislative support of family based agriculture. Due to immense fear toward anything that resembled England’s monarchy, Democratic-Republicans contested elitism. They despised and feared the Federalists, who were extremely wealthy aristocrats that wanted to create a national bank and emphasize … Continue reading

While The Rumpelstiltskins of The USA Snoozed

I have heard so many who decry the state of our union. Many have done so for a very long time but the general populace went about their merry way, so long as they were not affected directly, life was good. Well, this country was not founded on principles of communism, socialism, or any other ism. It’s constitution has been under attack since the 1950’s. Now people are waking up but dumbfounded that we are now on the brink of losing all vestiges of a republic where we the people matter from the ditch digger to the gold digger from … Continue reading

A Wider Ideological Gap Between More and Less Educated Adults

A Wider Ideological Gap Between More and Less Educated Adults PEW just released a detailed study for those statistics-minded individuals that is both interesting and frightening.  While I am not a proponent of polls, serious statistical studies do tend to highlight information.  Some may not like PEW but I believe if we pay attention, we will see patterns developing and have something to focus on as our country moves into the future. How people utilize that information is equally important and necessary for future change and consideration.   Their study listed three areas of significant interest concerning liberal vs conservatism … Continue reading

Patriots and Liberals Take Note – A Reminder of Socialist World

There are many of the young voting adults that have no idea what is really at stake with a change of our country to socialism. Why because they have been lied to and indoctrinated into the idea that life is somehow much more rosy on the other side of the fence. Well, hard truths are called for before we travel down this road. Truths that must be voiced. Life is not fair. We were never told that our lives would be a rose garden where we could do, say, be how we chose and someone mysterious would lay a platter … Continue reading

Quote Of The Day — August 06, 2015

. “Socialism is a wonderful idea. It is only as a reality that it has been disastrous. Among people of every race, color, and creed, all around the world, socialism has led to hunger in countries that used to have surplus food to export…. Nevertheless, for many of those who deal primarily in ideas, socialism remains an attractive idea — in fact, seductive. Its every failure is explained away as due to the inadequacies of particular leaders. ” Thomas Sowell   ~ ~   Grouchy   ~ ~

Quote Of The Day — July 6, 2015

. “They told us that this plan would achieve a noble ideal. Well, how were we to know otherwise? Hadn’t we heard it all our lives—from our parents and our schoolteachers and our ministers, and in every newspaper we ever read and every movie and every public speech?” Ayn Rand, (February 2, 1905 – March 6, 1982),  Atlas Shrugged, Part 2, Ch. 10   ~ ~   Grouchy   ~ ~

Quote Of The Day — February 20, 2015

. “There are significant differences between the American and European version of capitalism. The American traditionally emphasizes the need for limited government, light regulations, low taxes and maximum labour-market flexibility. Its success has been shown above all in the ability to create new jobs, in which it is consistently more successful than Europe.” Margaret Thatcher,  October 13, 1925 – Died April 08, 2013,  “The Path To Power”   ~ ~  Grouchy  ~ ~

Quote Of The Day — February 5, 2015

. What the Popes Really Say About Socialism The Overthrow of Order “You are aware indeed, that the goal of this most iniquitous plot is to drive people to overthrow the entire order of human affairs and to draw them over to the wicked theories of this Socialism and Communism, by confusing them with perverted teachings.” (Encyclical Nostis et Nobiscum, December 8, 1849) PIUS IX (1846-1878)   ~ ~ Grouchy ~ ~ H/T  —  VM

Quote Of The Day — January 8, 2015

. “I think we’ve been through a period where too many people have been given to understand that if they have a problem, it’s the government’s job to cope with it. ‘I have a problem, I’ll get a grant.’ ‘I’m homeless, the government must house me.’ They’re casting their problem on society. And, you know, there is no such thing as society. There are individual men and women, and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look to themselves first. It’s our duty to look after ourselves and then, also to look … Continue reading

Quote Of The Day — February 1, 2014

. Needless to say, under either system [socialism or fascism], the inequalities of income and standard of living are greater than anything possible under a free economy — and a man’s position is determined, not by his productive ability and achievement, but by political pull and force. Under both systems, sacrifice is invoked as a magic, omnipotent solution in any crisis — and “the public good” is the altar on which victims are immolated.   Ayn Rand    (1905 – 1982)   ~ ~  Grouchy  ~ ~

Quote Of The Day — January 31, 2014

. Under fascism, citizens retain the responsibilities of owning property, without freedom to act and without any of the advantages of ownership. Under socialism, government officials acquire all the advantages of ownership, without any of the responsibilities, since they do not hold title to the property, but merely the right to use it — at least until the next purge. In either case, the government officials hold the economic, political and legal power of life or death over the citizens.   Ayn Rand (1905 – 1982)   ~ ~ Grouchy ~ ~   Please Note:  Due to Apathy, Lack of … Continue reading

Quote Of The Day — December 20, 2013

. Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and given him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the new wonderful good society which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean more money, more ease, more security, and more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.   Marcus Tullius Cicero     ~ ~ Grouchy ~ ~

The funding includes $45.4 million to support the nursing workforce, $5.2 million of which will go towards “improving nursing diversity.” … Continue reading

Stossel: Thankful For Property

  From Human Events by John Stossel: Had today’s politicians and opinion-makers been in power four centuries ago, Americans might celebrate “Starvation Day” this week, not Thanksgiving. The Pilgrims started out with communal property rules. When they first settled at Plymouth, they were told: “Share everything, share the work, and we’ll share the harvest.” The colony’s contract said their new settlement was to be a “common.” Everyone was to receive necessities out of the common stock. There was to be little individual property. That wasn’t the only thing about the Plymouth Colony that sounds like it was from Karl Marx: … Continue reading

Obamaspeak: low enrollment equals demand

“Yesterday, the White House announced that in the first month, more than a hundred thousand Americans successfully enrolled in new insurance plans. Is that as high a number as we’d like? Absolutely not. But it does mean that people want affordable health care.” – Obama declared. Funny what government threats and force can do. Only in Obama’s mind could low numbers reflect high demand. It really proves the element of government force, which is the whole purpose of the law. This is the guy who began his campaign pretending to oppose a government mandate of force, to going full circle … Continue reading
