WHAT'S UP WITH THE HOUSING FORECLOSING SCARE?

WHAT'S UP WITH THE HOUSING FORECLOSING SCARE?
Let me, Freddie L. Sirmans, Sr analyze and dissect the inner working of the US economy. After the “New deal” the liberals set in motions this inflationary spiraling economy we have today. Inflationary spiraling is when government gives mass amounts of money to individuals to meet whatever price the merchants demand, thereby allowing the merchants to dictate the cost of living.

That is a no-no; the cost of living should be dictated by the public’s ability to pay in the free market place. That was the beginning of the inflationary spiraling we have today. The first thing is the government doesn’t have any money unless it is taken from somewhere. That is why government should stay out of the market place as much as possible and take only enough funds to defend the country, run the government and not take on a provider role or any other burdens.

In a natural non inflationary economy the merchants can’t charge more than the poor people can afford and stay in business because of their numbers. There are never enough rich people to support too higher prices. Throughout history when one couldn’t afford to pay he turned first to the extended family, the church, community organizations, and lastly the government. The government should never have gone past funding community wise things, such as kitchens and shelters.

Giving money to individuals on an individual basis is the dumbest thing a government can do in a democracy for long term survival. It sets up the system we are in today where the merchants need to raise prices higher and higher to stay in business, and the government needs to raise taxes higher and higher to support it’s provider role, so the poor can support the merchants higher and higher prices in a never ending upward spiral.

Many hard working people are as much as ten years behind the curve and are falling farther and farther behind by not getting a raise every year. If you think that is bad, look at the destruction it has done to the nuclear family, our bread basket small farmers, our manufacturing base, our bartering capacity, and on and on. But, here is the real kicker that most Americans don't think about; this whole system depends on mass money circulation to survive, whereas a natural free market system doesn’t.

If money circulation slows to a crawl it could collapse the whole system and starve most us to death. Whether true or not, the old “Sling” expressions of liberals booming the economy with mass social spending and conservatives booming the economy by fighting wars may not work anymore. The people are just about taxed out and so much of what we buy is made overseas that the only thing that really booms the economy anymore is mass building construction.

So, if house building and construction slows to a crawl we will be in for a lot of hurt. After restocking and paying operating cost the profit margin for some retail businesses can be as low as three percent. The billions of US dollars going overseas to purchase foreign made products and merchandise are not circulating back here in our economy. Sure, they may buy US treasure bonds and some big ticket items, but that’s still not very much circulation to help boost and keep our economy healthy.

That is why I rant and rail so hard about our government lessening its burdens through privatizing. There is no painless way out of the fix our economy is in but at least privatizing is a step toward sanity and long term survival.

May God bless and keep this great free nation always.

THEM BIG BAD CORPORATIONS ARE "GONNA GIT YOU."

THEM BIG BAD CORPORATIONS ARE "GONNA GIT YOU."
Recently I chuckled when listening to Ralph rant and rail about all of the big bad corporations that is ruining the country. However, I do agree with him on not giving the corporations welfare. But, I think he should first answer the question, where would we be without our great powerful corporations? I’ll answer it; we would be worse off than the poor third world countries.

In my view the real villain that has taken over is this welfare state that the liberals has enticed upon this great nation. The corporations may have a lot of money for civil power but they can't force their will on the American people. Never forget that in a free country you can’t have vast corporate power without government first giving protection. Corporations don’t have the power to stop small competitors with low overhead from setting up shop.

Sure, safety and standards matter, but keeping out small competitors is the main reason businesses pressures government to set up all kinds of strict codes, fees, regulations, and mandates. Government actually loves big business because of all of the license fees and other charges, plus the social engineering they forces on businesses. Sure, corporations are greedy and a lot the things Ralph says are true, but they also are the goose that lays the golden egg.

I for one says “Thank God for US. Corporations.” Poor people don’t get jobs from other poor people.

A TWO HEADED SNAKE.

A TWO HEADED SNAKE.
In my view solving the illegal immigration dilemma is like trying to charm a two-headed snake. It can end up biting a lot of politicians. Very few actually recognize this issue for what it really is. I don’t think this hot button highly charged emotional issue is going to flame down no matter what consensus is reached. Myself, I recognize this emotional charged issue as just plain old fashion sibling rivalry.

And there is only two ways to heal sibling rivalry, first, through hard but fair discipline, or make sure there is plenty enough love to go around. This country actually has a prevailing dependent mentality just like children in a big family, due to big government dependency. Many politicians think an influx of new payers paying into the social security system is a good thing, but, especially the elderly think just the opposite.

The elderly see the illegals as a threat to bankrupt social security, which to them is an unforgivable sin that they will not forget. You mark my words; these old folks are going to be hell bent on punishing somebody at the polls.I must have said it a thousand times or more, the immigration invasion is just a symptom. And in my view no amount of sugar coating a symptom is going to heal the problem or bring lasting peace.

No one wants to hear it but freedom as we know it is doomed in this country unless we private out of this dooms day welfare state. And politically I don’t think we any longer have the wisdom or the will to do that. I believe within ten years there could be mass civil unrest in this country that could end in permanent martial law. All great nations falls from within. You can seal the border, build a wall, or a hundred different things, but in my view nothing is going to stop this welfare state from destroying this nation unless we privatize damn near everything.

God save America.

CAN A THIRD PARTY SAVE US?

CAN A THIRD PARTY SAVE US?
Recently heard the term “National primary” and it tripped a switch in my brain. If they can so easily contemplate a national primary, why not also contemplate a national presidential runoff. We have the Electoral College in place as a safe guard, so why not? Why not have runoffs all the way up from local to presidential when no one receives more than fifty percent of the votes?

No great number of people is ever going to throw away their vote on a third party option, because without a final runoff it doesn't make sense. I think almost every country in the world haves a runoff system, it is the only fair way for everyone. We are locked in on a course toward doom and a change of course is the only thing that is going to save us.

Many have serious doubts about any real change of course unless pressured by a new kid on the block. You may not agree, but Freddie L. Sirmans' books don't just talk about a problem they gives wise solutions. Some people need to be shaken out of denial or we are doomed.

CAN THE STREET GANG ISSUE BE SOLVED?

CAN THE STREET GANG ISSUE BE SOLVED?
The gang issue like every major issue in the country is only going to get worse. Sure, the issue will get pampers and talked to death but in the end nothing with any real teeth will come about. We live in a modern age but human nature haven’t advanced for the better, not one iota. It is simple you cannot maintain order without discipline and you can’t have discipline without a bite with teeth.

Many individuals require no discipline, but never forget one bad apple can spoil a whole barrel. I know this article is a waste of my time but somebody needs to tell it like it is. Our whole correction system needs to be refocused. People that break the law and don’t follow the rules need to be put to work for their own keep. Instead of spending all of the tax payers money on expensive prisons, mass private run farms should be set up for anyone breaking US. Law and I mean everyone, no exceptions.
Many could still live at home. Sure, the small percentage of hardcore violent criminals must be kept locked up tight. But all of these non-violent drug and petty criminals should be put to hard labor instead of pumping iron and watching color TV. That would send a message, then you wouldn’t see this mass number of people going in and out of the prison system. Sure, most think I’m a kook and out dated, but this country is going down and positive results is the only thing that’s going to save us.

The same thing applies to the Iraq situation; discipline is the only thing that is going to bring order. The million-dollar question is, who is going to maintain the discipline? I don’t have the answer, probably no one does. Maybe have a special runoff type election and let the people choose, then the winner could declare martial law. We can’t run, but we can’t afford to pay the cost in blood and money forever. We all would like to see democracy take root, but it's never going to happen without order, first.
