This Time Its Different
, the headline read. A report in the Washington Post heralded “Global Pressures Have Converged to Forge a New Oil Reality” and how right they are. The United States have for so long been the king of the hill, we gave little credence to those pesky little third world countries trying to climb the hill to be with us. And when it comes to the top of the hill, to steal a line from the movies, there can be only one. Sadly, it looks like we’re not going to be that one for much longer.
Political infighting, bickering, backbiting and other assorted down and dirty tricks intended to gain victory in Americas empty poll industry has give us a pretty bad name in some parts of the world, not to mention the destabilizing of our economy. But nobody wants to see the forest for the trees, so we go tripping lightly down the yellow brick road. Ostensibly to Xanadu, I presume.
Maine really isn’t any different than the rest of the nation though, are we? The Democrats are engaging in their own little war, just like at the national level. But that’s quite all right. It’ll only hasten in my predictions of the future. And I’ll be right, and they’ll be wrong. Unfortunately, it’ll be too late, and irreparable damage will have set in.
There are a couple of items to bring ones attention to regarding the political climate here in Maine that will have some serious repercussions down the road. And yes, they both have to do with the democrat party. One of the issues is an AP article in the PPH. According to the article,
Lu Bauer and David Bright were ousted from the Dems executive committee for their support of Herbert Hoffman, Dem turned Indie for Senate.
Granted, the executive committee has the right to do this action, but it merely serves, in my mind at least, to cement the idea that the democrats are becoming ever closer to being true blue Socialists, with an eye for communist style controls. The issue at hand was the Dems efforts to block Hoffman’s presence on this Fall’s election ballot. This action took place before the State Supreme Court even made the decision as to whether the Dems would be allowed the maneuver. Whatever inkling of support, minute as it was, for any efforts by the democrat party is now completely gone.
Of course, this will make it even easier for Susan Collins to defeat opponent Tom Allen. Resources that the Dems should have allocated to his efforts will be shortened with Hoffman’s campaign running in the fray. But that’s a good thing by Dan’s Maine view. Any little thing we can do to defeat these bogus global warming puppets will only help in the long run.
Which brings me to the second issue that needs to be addressed. And that is the state of our economy. Richard Fabrizio had an excellent article
concerning foreign investments, dollar value etc, while complaining about Canadians in Speedo’s. Can’t say as I blame him. I’ve seen guys wearing those things. Have they no shame?
While it’s more than fair to say that our business climate holds a good portion of the blame, I think we need to realize that a good deal ore of it has to lie with the political climate at the moment in this country. If you really think about it, while there has been an increase in the oil price during Bush’s tenure as President, the bulk of the increase has occurred since Madame Pelosi and her fruitcake brigade took over as Speaker of the House. In fact, most of the decrease in the value of our currency has occurred in just this year alone, starting in February.
Kind of coincidental that happened after it became clear that Obumble had a great deal of pull and very well may become our next President. Since he appears to be unabashedly Socialist in his political theology, this sends a scare throughout the world. “The US is going to fail,” is that message. Fine state of affairs we’re in ain’t it?
Don’t believe me? check out this article in today’s IBD
on Obama’s plans for this Nation. Here’s an excerpt from that article: (Italics are mine, by the way.)
Among his proposed “investments”:
• “Universal,” “guaranteed” health care. ( a Socialist philosophy)
• “Free” college tuition. ( a Socialist philosophy)
• “Universal national service” (a la Havana). ( a Socialist philosophy)
• “Universal 401(k)s” (in which the government would match contributions made by “low- and moderate-income families”).
• “Free” job training (even for criminals).
• “Wage insurance” (to supplement dislocated union workers’ old income levels). ( a Socialist philosophy)
• “Free” child care and “universal” preschool. ( a Socialist philosophy)
• More subsidized public housing. ( a Socialist philosophy)
• A fatter earned income tax credit for “working poor.” ( a Socialist philosophy)
• And even a Global Poverty Act that amounts to a Marshall Plan for the Third World, first and foremost Africa. ( a Socialist philosophy)
And this isn’t the only instance where we can see what Obama has in store for us. And naturally, the rest of the Socialist world doesn’t like it, mostly because they have long regarded the US as their very own gravy train. If Obama gets elected, there goes the world’s economy. Right into the dustbin. And so we have a severe weakening of our buying power, as well as our ability to be a world leader.
Do the research and find out for yourselves. Voting Democrat will eventually destroy what little is left of this Nation.
