Aspie with Attitude

Sure, I'm just another Southern Recovering Alcoholic NPR- and Sweet-Tea Addicted Comic Mom with Asperger's in the SFV, but I can tell you now that I don't necessarily fit the stereotype.

More Bailout Stuff

I am truly thankful that the House narrowly defeated the $700 billion forced socialism legislation yesterday. However, I'm wondering why I'm having to write "narrowly" here. Why wasn't it a huge defeat? My guess is that the CFR and other buddies, who prop up the evil and completely unnecessary Federal Reserve Bank, are paying off some representatives. Or the reps themselves may be such idiots that they're not even getting paid. Listen to Gary Miller guy, from California, of course. I received this e-mail courtesy of Steven Vincent, who sincerely seems to want to end the Federal Reserve.

“If you just solely rely on the phone calls we’re getting from home, listening to people who don’t understand the complexities of our marketplace and what we’re dealing with here, the easiest vote for you to make would be a no vote today. You have to go beyond that.” - Rep Gary Miller R-CA Dist. 42

Obviously any legislator who would listen to the cries of the serfs over Lord Miller’s superior knowledge and commitment to our nation is a fool. Please let his Lordship know about your knowledge of “the complexities of the marketplace” by giving him a call at (202) 225-3201 in DC and (714) 257-1142 in CA.

If you're reading this blog and you care anything about freedom, call Lord Miller's vassals. I just did and it took two minutes. The vassal was polite and said that he would pass along my message. Please call--it's the only way that these Congress Critters are going to know what's going to happen to them in November if they continue to support forced socialism.

Also, take a look at this essay. Ron Paul predicted this financial problem and in fact, introduced legislation to stop it. But, as always, nobody listened.

Another wonderful essay, brought to my attention courtesy of Dan Black, is by the wonderful Lew Rockwell, someone who does understand the "complexities of our marketplace."

Mainstream media, of course, is telling a different story, lamenting that the bill didn't pass. Don't worry, the elite, as Rockwell said in his article, certainly have an alternate plan for forcing socialism on us and controlling our money supply.

Now, Here's the Way to Have a Bailout!

Now this is the way to fix the economy.

Against AIG bailout - read this

I'm against the $85 BILLION bailout of AIG. Instead, I'm in favor of
giving $85,000,000,000 to America in a 'We Deserve It' dividend. To
make the math simple, let's assume there are 200,000,000 bona fide U.S.
citizens, aged 18+.

Our population is about 301 million counting every man, woman and
child. So, 200,000,000 might be a fair stab at adults 18 and up. Now,
divide 200 million, 18+ adults into $85 billion - that equals
$425,000.00 each! Yes, my plan is to give that $425,000 to every
adult as a 'We Deserve It' dividend.
***(Note: I would only include every
citizen, ( not illegals)
currently paying or filing an Income Tax Return)

Of course, it would NOT be tax free. So, let's assume a tax rate of
30%. Everyone would pay $127,500.00 in taxes. That sends $25.5
billion right back to Uncle Sam! It also means that every adult 18+
has $297,500.00 in their pocket. A husband and wife would have

What would you do with $297,500.00 to $595,000.00?

Pay off your mortgage – housing crisis solved.
Repay college loans – what a great boost to new grads.
Put away money for college – it'll really be there.
Save in a bank – create money to loan to entrepreneurs.
Buy a new car – create jobs .
Invest in the market – capital drives growth.
Pay for your parent's medical insurance – health care improves.
Enable deadbeat parents to come clean – or else.

Remember this is for every adult U.S. citizen, 18 and older (including
the folks who lost their jobs at Lehmann Brothers and every other
company that is cutting back) and of course, for those serving in our
Armed Forces.

If we're going to re-distribute wealth let's really do it! Instead of
trickling out a puny $1,000.00 'economic incentive'.

If we're going to do an $85 billion bailout, let's bail out every adult
U.S. citizen!

As for AIG – liquidate it.

Sell off its parts.
Let American General go back to being American General.
Sell off the real estate.
Let the private sector bargain hunters cut it up and clean it up.

We deserve the money and AIG doesn't. Sure it's a crazy idea, but can
you imagine the coast-to-coast block party?!

How do you spell Economic Boom? W-e D-e-s-e-r-v-e I-t
d-i-v-i-d-e-n-d! I trust my fellow adult Americans to know how to use
the $85 Billion 'We Deserve It' dividend more than do the 'geniuses' at
AIG or in Washington , D.C. .

And remember, my plan only really costs $59.5 billion because $25.5
billion is returned instantly in taxes to Uncle Sam. Good idea? I
think so.

Thank you.

I received this post from a homeschooling group. I absolutely love it! The socialists almost won yesterday with the vote to nationalize the monetary system. The solution, of course, is to end the Federal Reserve Bank, a private entity that has no business regulating our money. However, it is rumored that President Kennedy suggested ending it, only a few weeks before he was killed. The elite bankers have an extremely strong hold on the U.S. economy and threatening that hold could make their lives much more difficult. That's why Bush, who should be against any bailout, is touting this socialist plan as if it were some kind of free market panacea. And the masses, who are often informed only via the propaganda that major newspapers publish these days, believe that it's the "greedy capitalists" that have gotten us in trouble. It's easy to hate the "greedy capitalists," but much more difficult to place the blame on the government, which needs to stop printing money willy nilly and needs to wean itself from the quite toxic tit of the Federal Reserve. Most people have such a poor understanding of economics that they really believe that government schools provide "free" education. Perhaps this whole bailout thing will make people more willing to accept the truth. Perhaps.

Increasing the Supply of Children for Adoption

The adoption industry, a $1.5 billion U.S. business that's growing each year, has been so successful with its propaganda that most people actually believe that the supply of children who are available for adoption grossly exceeds the demand. If people really understood that, for instance, there are over 40 potential adopters waiting for each adoptable infant, perhaps they wouldn't look so favorably on adopters when they take an infant from its mother. The demand is much higher than the supply of children. Nonetheless, it never hurts to have more white infants, which are more valuable on the adoption market than children of other ethnicities. Many people will, of course, call me racist for simply stating the truth. I'm not stating my opinion here; my opinion is that children should not be bought and sold at all, whether it be through adoption or slavery or just plain old selling a child. The facts are, however, that more adoptable infants bring more money for lawyers, social wreckers, and others connected with this hideous industry. So-called "Save Haven Laws," passed under the guise of protecting infants, swept the country with some federal government help, and now, voila!, people are dropping off all their children when they get tired of said children. I'm sure that the adoption industry social wreckers are wringing their hands over placing a 17-year-old, not an easy task, but there's also an infant and some smaller children involved and those will bring more money, no doubt. People hate to think of adoption as a business. We've all been brainwashed to think of it as this wonderful entity that helps children. Wake up, folks. It's all about money and breaking up families. The people who really run our government have created lots of things that break up natural families, such as government schools, day care, and adoption. The weaker families are, the more powerful government can be. Weak families and propaganda are why King Jorge can go on television, as he did last night, and tell people that the government needs to bail out huge corporations, setting the stage for national debt that can't be paid. One hundred years ago, people took care of their children and one hundred years ago, such a government bailout would have been met with shotguns at Congress. My, how weak we've become.

Come On People, Don't Apologize to the Government!

I can't think of an apology to the state that I've ever liked. I read about them all the time though, with the star as people whose ancestors fought in the not-so-civil war between the states, which was basically when the South wanted to secede from the Union, a perfectly Constitutional thing from what I understand, and the North didn't want to lose all that productivity. Of course, it's been revised to have as the main point the whole slavery thing, making white people feel much more guilty than we should and making black people feel far more inferior than they should. But this little p.r. campaign sure has done a lot to make people hate the South.

Nonetheless, it's not at all refreshing to hear that over a century later, the South is producing such wusses as the mother of this man. Actually, I have a bit of admiration for Joseph Pascal Aprea, the 18-year-old man from Malmedy Drive in Holly Springs who had a gun in his car when he picked up his girlfriend. After all, it's his car, isn't it? His private property? Ah, but the state has done such a good job with its government school propaganda that the schools are no longer ours; we belong to the government schools. All of which explains some of the many reasons that my children don't go to government schools. Our local one has a gate around it, like a prison. But even sans gates, this incident, in which a guy was charged and spent the night in jail, merely for having a gun in his car, shows why I don't care to step foot in the place.

Evidently, they're doing a great job these days of confiscating private property, however, making sure that everyone who touches the hallowed ground of a school follows the rules, even when a taxpayer is inside has his or her own car. Oh, that kind of behavior from the government schools doesn't bother me so much anymore. When a tragedy like the one that happened a few months ago at Virginia Tech occurs and people still can't see the value of carrying a gun, well, I don't know what to say. Aprea's mom's comment, however, bothers me more than the government school's decree.

Aprea's mother, Jacqueline Tapp, said this afternoon it was just "a stupid mistake" for her son to leave in his truck the rifle and shotgun he uses for target practice and hunting.

"He just wasn't thinking. He didn't even put two and two together about how protective the schools are now," Tapp said.

Please allow me to translate: In a world in which two out of five of the Most Popular stories in the Raleigh News and Disturber this week concerned Clay Aiken proclaiming that he is gay, Tapp just doesn't understand how her son, whom I'll bet watches Oprah a lot less than she, might even think about disobeying the fine educational system that has evidently brainwashed her into believing that she has no rights on the hallowed ground that she, more than likely, pays some tax money to support. No, instead, she believes that in return for all this "free" education that her son, his girlfriend, and everyone else in Holly Springs seems to salivate to find, she should have to bow to the silly Zero Tolerance of the government schools, a world in which her own son tried to escape unscathed, a world in which a gun on a rack can send you to jail, a world in which a Fuquay-Varina police officer must follow his orders, even though he probably thinks they're pretty stupid and even though he admitted that Aprea had done no harm.

It's pretty obvious that Tapp and her allies at the police department have no understanding of private property, economics, or just plain common sense. Perhaps we can see now how easily King Jorge can persuade us to think that the bailout package is going to help the economy. All this government school education and people can't understand simple economics.

A little Red State Update's "Dumbass Party" seems appropriate here, for all parties involved.

Talk About Grass and Sheep Will Follow

Sometimes, it really amazes me how much people have become sheeple in the past few years. Imagine what would have happened 100 years ago if your average small town had tried to pass an ordinance stating how high grass should be on private property. Now, these kinds of communistic ordinances are being passed all over the nation, even in the South. What is somewhat amazing to me is that no one bothers to say: This is my private property! You can't tell me how to cut my grass! Instead, socialists dicker over how high the ordinance should allow the grass to be. Of course, placing this whole high-grass-can-attract-rodents thing makes it a public health issue. Of course, public health translates into socialism quite easily.

I was extremely disappointed to see that Elkin, North Carolina, once a pretty free small town, has spiraled into this socialism, totally disregarding public property:

"I believe if we go ahead and approve this ordinance to get it going and set the standard, we can go back and look at the height again," said board member J. L. Lowe. The ordinance was passed with the suggestion that the planning board revisit the height requirements and that another amendment be added at a later date.

The council also dealt with the issue of response time.

"We are also changing the length of time for residents and business owners to respond from 45 to 55 days, to 20 days," said Crater. "This would allow for 10 days mailing and 10 days to respond to the letter informing of the violation."

In other words, you can get a ticket for something that you do on your own private property. Using true socialist media bias, there is no opposing opinion. There is not even the hint of both sides, i.e., that private property rights supercede such ordinances.

Last September, we were in this little town and I went to the cool, new coffee shop there. I learned that business owners are forbidden to flash lighted signs, on their own private property! And folks there think that California is socialist? Okay, it is in a lot of ways, but I'll tell you this: Our neighbor two doors down often goes for a while without mowing his grass. We live with no homeowners association and there is nothing that I know of in the city ordinances that say he can't do that. Each time I see his grass getting too high for my own personal taste, I celebrate the fact that he's able to grow it as high as he wants. As for the supposed potential rodent problem? We have cats to take care of that.

Why is Sarah Palin Running with the Devil?

Okay, I know: I'm so very much against the current war industry and yet, I'm hoping to edit as many proposals as possible for the upcoming DoD deadline. Am I a big old hypocrite? Perhaps. But I also enjoy editing these proposals and I make money doing so. It's nice, also, to see what kind of scientific products the government is interested in. I can live with myself and I sleep well at night (except, of course, when I write these journal entries in the wee hours of the morning :).

But what about Sarah Palin? If it is true that she has a flag of Israel in her Alaska governor's office, as I've read is true, why? Wouldn't she be better off sporting a copy of the U.S. Constitution? Those little details about her, however, don't bother me nearly as much as whom she's aligned herself with: Warmonger McCain. Personally, I don't like what I've heard about McCain's taking a child from another family and culture and pretending that child belongs to him and Cindy. On a larger scale, however, I don't like that McCain seems okay with the whole unConstitutionally declared war thing. From what I've read, Sarah Palin is okay with this war thing, even going so far as to be proud of her older son for fighting for whatever it is we're supposedly fighting for (can somebody remind me again?). One of my favorite writers, Will Grigg, addresses the disparity of Sarah's refusal to have an abortion with her youngest child, who has Down's Syndrome, and yet her eagerness and zeal for her oldest son in going to serve, well, for what cause? I can't see that this Iraqi war has done much to give me or my children more freedoms. In fact, I feel much less free now, and by the increase in laws, I am much less free, than I was in, say, 2000. There is no longer habeus corpus, for instance, which means that I have no right as a person to defend myself, or to know what the authorities are accusing me of. Many Executive Orders and such have been passed that allow the government to snoop into my phone calls, computer records, and such, without my knowledge. Go ask your local librarian, for instance, how comfortable he or she is knowing that a G-man (or G-woman) may come knocking Monday morning and asking questions about the books that a patron has checked out. The librarian must tell the G-person, and cannot tell the patron that the government has been snooping. With results such as these from our supposed war on terrorism, I can't help but wonder whom the government is most afraid of: A supposed bogeyman in the Middle East or people who bother to think and read in the United States. I think that I know the answer. Perhaps Sarah Palin knows the answer as well. But she's not telling. Instead, she's touting the Republican party line, which claims to protect the unborn, but has little regard for the already born in countries that we occupy. Nonetheless, Republicans all over the country are hailing her, feeling akin to her because she's not yet joined the Council on Foreign Relations (although I'm sure that her invitation is in the mail).

Nonetheless, Sarah Palin, now on the payroll of the Republican Party, will continue "Defending Our Nation, Supporting Our Heroes, [and] Securing the Peace," earning the supposed trust of countless numbers of supposedly conservative women around the country.

If you lie down with dogs, you'll more than likely get up with fleas. Whatever Sarah Palin may have said or done previously, whatever tiny bit of respect that she may have once had for freedom, she is now lying with some of the most vicious and uncaring dogs in the country. She's barking what she's told to bark. And she's being what she's told to be.

Many thanks to Jim for alerting me, through his wonderful blog, to this specific Will Grigg column.

I'll leave you with a question: Sarah Palin may or may not have much to do as Alaska's governor, but she makes a good living doing it. I can only imagine how much she's traveling these days as Republican lapdog. Can't conservative women see that a woman who is running for Vice President doesn't have much time to be there as a mom? I don't know what it's like yet to have older children, but I know that an infant and a small child (as her younger two are) take a tremendous amount of time. I do three comedy shows close to my home each week and edit proposals at home and still, I feel as though I don't devote enough time to my children. How can Sarah Palin raise five children and run for Vice President?

Okay, I haven't left yet. I have more questions for so-called conservative women: My friend Tish was telling me recently about a "really conservative" woman that she knows who has cancer. It's especially sad because this woman has two small children. And she works full-time, said Tish. Wait a minute, I said, if she's so conservative, why is she working full-time? This Sarah Palin thing has brought up a similar issue: So, why is it that conservative women these days think it's okay to ship their children to a government school all day and go to the workplace? That's the question I'm leaving you with.
