GE and jobs

General Electric is planning to move its 115-year-old X-ray division from Waukesha, Wis., to Beijing. In addition to moving the headquarters, the company will invest $2 billion in China and train more than 65 engineers and create six research centers.

This is the same GE that made $5.1 billion in the United States last year. but paid no taxes-the same company that employs more people overseas than it does in the united States.

So let us get this straight. President Obama appointed GE Chairman Jeff Immelt to head his commission on job creation (job czar). Immelt is supposed to help create jobs. I guess the President forgot to tell him in which country he was supposed to be creating those jobs.

If this doesn’t show you the total lack of leadership of this President, I don’t know what does.

Quote of the Day 8/24/11

“The expression ‘garbage in, garbage out’ refers to the data supplied to computers. It meant that if the programmer provided it with misinformation, there was no way the machinery could correct it. That happens to be the way I view Congress and the White House: Garbage in, garbage out. Too bad we have to wait until November, 2012, for the trash collector.” – columnist Burt Prelutsky

“Let My People Go” By the Bear

When the news of the Virginia earthquake hit near Washington D.C. that rattled the halls of government an immediate thought flashed across my mind … more bad news for Obama to add to his litany of excuses. Immediately the seismologist in the White House went to work and discovered a new fault line in the area and it will forever go down in history as the George W. Bush “Fault Line.”

But there is more to the story.

Some 3,500 years ago Moses came down from the mountain and told the Pharaoh of Egypt … “Let My People Go” and when the Pharaoh, a God like creature who they called “the one” refused, a Great Recession descended upon the country of Egypt. The Stone Workers’ union went on strike for a shorter work week and the unemployed rioted for scraps of food.

But the Pharaoh of Egypt stood firm against this ragged looking man called Moses who always carried a crooked shaft that did magical tricks and said “NO.”

Egypt at that time was the world’s greatest economic powerhouse that world had ever seen and other countries paid homage to wealth that they created and a standard of living like none other before. They had the latest in sand castles with all the modern conveniences and two camels in every garage. But soon the Great Recession that never ended took its toll on the country, the money grubbers in the temples got more than their fair share and the gold and glitter surrounding the ruling class soon tarnished.

Time and again Moses appeared before the “great one ” and the answer was always “NO”. So Moses went back to the mountain to consult with his nameless friend…”I am, who I am” and they put plan B into play. The country would beset with disaster after disaster… butterflies would turn into frogs, the Potomac River would turn blood red and 6.0 earthquake would rattle the very foundations of government. The great monuments would sway in the breeze and cracks would soon appear.

Eventually, the Pharaoh of Egypt let Moses and his people go to wonder in the dessert for 40 years and the rebirth of a new life, I seriously doubt that the American People will be that patient.

It is time to put the American People back to work and let them do what they do best; create, design, invent and produce. It’s called Yankee Ingenuity.

There is no moral to the story other than: Do you think ‘the one’ will get the message and resign? … and save himself from a stinging defeat.

P.S. The Tea Party did had nothing to do with the Potomac River turning red so Homeland Security can look into other terrorist organizations. It turned red because the George Bush Fault Line emitted red clay. You know it had to be his fault.

Gunwalker and the Foundation of Liberty by Mike McDaniel

It all comes down to this: Is there an inalienable right to self-defense? If there is, each man has indisputable, inestimable value, value that he may rightly preserve even if the life of another man is forfeit. A man may kill another in lawful self-defense even if the policy preferences of the state would prefer his death. If a right to self-defense actually exists, it is in a very real sense the highest law of the land and all lesser laws must pay it deference. It fundamentally defines the social contract, the nature of the relationship between man and the state.

But if there is no such inalienable right, the entire nature of the social contract is changed. Each man’s worth is measured solely by his utility to the state, and as such the value of his life rides a roller coaster not unlike the stock market: dependent not only upon the preferences of the party in power but upon the whims of its political leaders and the permanent bureaucratic class. The proof of this analysis surrounds us.

Irony abounds in that England, the cradle of the common law and of our doctrine of self-defense, has utterly done away with even a government-condescended privilege to self-preservation. Not only have the English allowed themselves to be virtually stripped of firearms, British politicians have made attempts with varying degrees of success to ban knives. Attempting to protect the self or others from brutal criminal attack can and will lead to lengthy jail sentences in jolly old England — for the victims. Attacking criminals often go free, and often successfully sue their victims for daring to harm them in the process of depriving them of property or their very lives.

In the recent riots in Britain, we see America not far into the future if the progressive worldview is much further advanced.
