When talking to democrats about the economy…

Thursday, August 16th, 2018

…keep in mind that most of them don’t know the difference between a Kenyan and a Keynesian.

Note that the only one leftist in the clip who actually knows what a Keynesian is.  He is also clearly stoned off his gourd, so he is probably enjoying the protest more than most.

Why is the media suppressing facts about the latest school shooting?

Monday, December 30th, 2013

Here is what you probably know, kid brings a shotgun to school (a “gun free zone”) and shoots another student before killing himself.  The student he shot later died from her wounds inflicted by the kid who ignored the numerous victim disarmament laws in place.

Here is something you probably haven’t heard, because it doesn’t fit the media narrative.  One of the law flaunting murder’s fellow students described him as “a very opinionated Socialist.”  He also was, like our Dear Leader, a Keynesian.

He was also a strong proponent of so-called “gun control” laws.  Yet, he decided to advance his political views through the barrel of a gun.  Guess that makes him a good progressive.

Which is the message the “traditional” main stream media doesn’t want getting out.

Now imagine how they would have handled this story if this murderer had political leans anywhere to the right of center.

Reality is clearly not her strong point

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

The DNC’s so called “spokesperson” Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is still on her long term vacation from reality.

The latest example is her claiming that “We’ve Really Begun To Turn The Economy Around.”

If she means that the democrats have turned the economy around by wedging it even further in the ditch he and the congressional democrats have wedged into with their Keynesian policies, then ya, she could be inhabiting the shared reality of rational adults, but I really don’t think that is the case.

Let’s review a couple of recent indicators of just how the American economy is doing.

Unemployment rose in more than 90 percent of U.S. cities in June

An increase in layoffs in the sector helped push the number of announced U.S. jobs cuts to a 16-month high.

There is also the decrease in demand for manufactured goods, the recent downgrades in the GDP for the past year, and rising inflation.

If you want to spot check this, drive around your local town and see how many empty store fronts and office buildings there are.  Are there more or less than there were a year ago?  Unless you live in Texas, the answer is probably more.

Do The Math

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

Clearly our Dear Leader is hoping you don’t.  He claims that “Chrysler has repaid every dime and more of what it owes the American taxpayer from the investment we made during my watch.”

Conn Carrol has done the math for you just in case you are one of those who think that Obamacare will actually reduced health care costs.

Total loaned to Chrysler: $14 billion

Total paid back by Chrysler: $7.56 billion

Total taxpayer loss on the Obama bail out of Chrysler: $6.44 billion

While you can argue if math is not one of our Dear Leader‘s strong points, it is pretty clear that he is betting that it isn’t one of yours.

Yet another example of why Keynesian Economics Is Wrong

Economic Growth Causes Consumer Spending, Not the Other Way

Pay attention to this video and then review the economic polices of our Dear Leader and the Congressional democrats.

Moving beyond “Blame Bush”

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

Now that his term in office is more than half over, our Dear Leader has finally managed to find someone else to blame for the poor economic performance the nation has been inflicted with since he and the democrats assumed power over the legislative and executive branches of government.

Not that he and his loyal minions are are going to stop blaming George W. Bush, they proved that yesterday after unemployment “unexpectedly” spiked back over 9% once again during the Obama Regime.  At least he is branching out now.

During his weekly radio address yesterday, our Dear Leader raised some trial balloons that place the blame of the dismal Obama Economy on the Europeans and the Japanese.

Yup, it’s clearly the fault of Japanese and Europeans, not his dangerous addiction to the emperically discredited Keynesian economic theories.  Yup, the American people clearly knew what they were doing when they elected a man who managed to go $300,000 in debt on an annual household income of just over $500,000 a year.  OK, I’ll give the American people a pass on that one, since I’m betting the vast majority of voters who get their “news” from MSN sources like MSNBC, the NY Times, CNN or CBS News never heard that interesting, yet highly relevant fact.

For how well a sample of potential voters are ‘educated’ by the MSM, let’s roll some video.

I’m concerned that a vast majority of those who voted for our Dear Leader appear to absolutely no clue as to what a Keynesian is. Once again, let’s check the video.

OK, say we cut them slack on Keynesian theory, most people don’t know much about economics. This video shows a sample of Obama voters and quizzes them on some basic political knowledge. What is more interesting than what they don’t know is what they do know, and what they think they know.

First, we see just what the liberal democrats spent the “stimulus” money on…

Next, we learn that most lefties have no clue to what a Keynesian is and even worse, when they do, they are still pretty damn clueless.
