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.

Who Cares About Socialism? Emperor Obama Rules!

When one of the clients that I edit for wrote yesterday and told me the company is asking all contractors to reduce our rates by 20%, I was quite taken aback. After all, this company is quite solid, or so I thought, and they ask for government money all the time, often receiving it. I called a scientist that I work with and he said that everyone in the company has been asked to take a cut in pay. We chatted a bit and then he asked me with his thick Russian accent, "Tricia, whom did you vote for?"

"Not the one that's in," I said. He told me that he'd lived in the Soviet Union for over four decades and that he sees what's going on here. "Everybody's equal," he added, "equally poor!" He said he's gone up to all the company executives and said, "You got what you voted for," or some equivalent. And so is the country.

One can hardly see socialism more clearly than with the fabulously one-world government G-20 conference. Most people have no clue about what this conference is about. Evidently. If people understood what Emperor O. is doing, I would hope that there would be blood in the streets. On the other hand, people are too busy watching American Idol and such for that tired cliche to come true. I generally love French people and food, but this French President guy is really getting on my nerves:

A lot was at stake. If the leaders had failed to forge a consensus -- Sarkozy this week threatened to quit the talks if they didn’t back much tighter regulation -- it might have set back the world’s economy and markets just as they’re showing signs of shaking off the worst financial crisis in six decades.

What does it mean when things aren't socialist enough for the French?!?

The elite are smiling, I'm sure, as Americans yawn at this news and continue to hail high hosannas at Emperor O. As long as he plants an organic garden at the White House (as if he's going to be digging dirt any time soon), everything will, of course, be peachy keen.

Emperor O. has even proven himself to be more of a socialist than FDR. I know, it's hard to believe, but here's the proof:

[I]n 1933 . . . President Franklin D. Roosevelt torpedoed a similar conference in London by rejecting its plan to stabilize currency rates and in the process scotched international efforts to lift the world out of a depression.

More Conciliation

Seeking to avoid a repeat of that historic flop, President Barack Obama junked the at-times go-it-alone approach of his predecessor, George W. Bush, and adopted a more conciliatory stance toward his fellow leaders.

Therefore, Obama has proven himself to be the one-world government promoter and socialist dupe that many of us have thought him to be all along.

Funny how in such an economic crisis, as we've been led to by the elite and by government regulations, the answer is for the countries that don't have money to, well, print more money:

The U.S. did, though, take the lead in getting the summit to agree on an increase in IMF rescue funds to $750 billion from $250 billion now. Japan, the European Union and China will provide the first $250 billion of the increase, with the balance to come from as yet unidentified countries.

With the overly bankrupt U.S., of course, taking the lead.

As tempting as it is sometimes to think about how much housework and other stuff I could easily complete (supposedly:) if my children were locked in the government school prisons all day, stories like this one make me especially glad that we homeschool. When I explain the economy and the idiotic moves that the new Emperor makes, they ask really obvious questions, such as, "If the government can print more money, why can't we?" My guess is that in a government school concentration camp, they'd be learning not to ask simple questions that make sense, but rather, they'd be learning why they should embrace homosexuality or some such. On days when things aren't going well in the homeschool arena, I'm just thankful that they're not learning the stupid crap with which the government schools try to fill innocent and growing minds. How do I know that the stupid crap is being taught? Because it's rare to hear in the media or anywhere else such common sense questions as my children, who are only 4, 6, and 8, ask. The stupid crap and distractions, the bread and circuses of modern-day society, are working. Emperor O. and his world-government cronies are taking more control of our money. And no one really seems to care. Or to notice.
