Someone That Wanted America To Fail Would…Drive Up Energy Prices, Add Trillions of Dollars to the National Debt, Conduct An All-Out Attack on the American People and American Business by “Crucifying” Then and Allow the Iranians To Get the Nuclear Bomb – Yes, “If I Wanted America To Fail” Is A Video That EVERY American That Gives A Damn About His Country Should Watch….If You Don’t Give A Damn About Your Children and Grandchildren’s Futures….Don’t Bother Watching the Video

Thanks to Bill Frezza for pointing out in his latest the YouTube.com video…

If I Wanted America to Fail: Free Market Agitprop With a Lesson, Bill Frezza, Real Clear Markets

“A powerful YouTube video essay that premiered on Earth Day has since gone viral. I first saw it when it cracked 100,000 views. At last count, over 1.7 million people have seen it, a number that grows daily. It started out being passed along by conservative Americans but has begun spreading into wider circles.

This video, entitled, If I Wanted America to Fail, can be best described as a pithy five-minute antidote to Al Gore’s ponderous and plodding film, An Inconvenient Truth. Written and narrated by a young Floridian political activist named Ryan Houck from an organization named Free Market America, the piece is loosely modeled on Paul Harvey’s famous 1965 radio sermon “If I Were the Devil.”

But this is not a religious screed. It is an anti-religious screed. The religion it attacks is radical environmentalism, and the priesthood it exposes is the runaway bureaucracy of the regulatory state. The philosophy it proposes as an alternative is free market capitalism.”

…that details what the former Californians know all-to-well and that is the All-Out and Direct War that is being conducted by the Government of California on the People and Businesses of the now Broken State of California which is now moving on as the Wacko Liberal Nuts put their sights on the entire country.

“If I Wanted America To Fail”

Don’t believe the above video about the Direct and All-Out Attack that is now expanding beyond the borders of California to the entire American Republic?

Here is an Employee of the U.S. Federal Government….YOUR Government bragging about “Crucifying” the American People and American Businesses like “the Romans” did.

If I Wanted America To Fail we would….

Drive-Up Energy Prices

Add Trillions of Dollars to the National Debt

Allow the Iranians to get a Nuclear Weapon

Pass Tens of Thousands of new regulations that would put a stranglehold on American Business and employ Federal Employees that laughed about “Crucifying” Americans and American Companies

The BIG Problem In Washington DC Is That OUR Sorry Ass “Elected Leaders” Are Doing NOTHING AT ALL Because They Are Afraid That DOING SOMETHING Might Lead Them Losing the Next Election and Sadly There Are Lots of Americans That Are Too Damn Precious and Greedy To Sacrifice Themselves Like Union Workers Having To Pay…GASP!….8.5 % of Their Health Care Premiums – Meanwhile in the REAL World Most Americans Pay 25 Percent Plus of Their Health Care Premiums But Who Ever Said Working In A Public Employee Union Was the REAL World?

If you want to know why America is doomed the following three articles tell the tale better than we ever could….

The Real Washington: Democracy in America, Robert Samuelson, Real Clear Politics

U.S. Perfecting Formula for Budget Failure, Says Erskine Bowles, William D. Cohan, Bloomberg.com

Golden Gate Bridge workers call for strike Tuesday, urge protesters to keep span open, Mark Prado, Marin Independent Journal

What does the Sorry Ass “Elected Leaders” of the American Republic that care about NOTHING but getting their precious asses re-elected so they do NOTHING at all have to do with Golden Gate Transportation District workers striking in California?

Oh, this is a very simple explanation:

As Robert Samuelson points out in his column

“More promises were made than can be kept without raising taxes, which — for the most part — were also subject to bipartisan promises against increases. Almost everyone agrees that massive budget deficits pose a long-term economic threat, though no can be precise about how or when the threat might emerge. A central question about our political system is whether, after 60 years of making more promises to more groups, it can withdraw some promises to minimize the threat.

So far, the answer is “no.” Political leaders don’t lead. They take the path of least resistance, which has been to do little except to find scapegoats — “the rich,” “special interests,” “liberals,” “conservatives” — that arouse their supporters’ angriest antagonisms. It helps explain polarization. This is really what Washington does. It’s a demoralizing commentary on the state of American democracy.”

Yes, OUR “Elected Leaders” are afraid to do anything because doing SOMETHING might put their precious asses elected positions on the line.

As William D. Cohan points on in his column

“Erskine Bowles, a true Southern gentleman and co-chairman of President Barack Obama’s erstwhile budget-deficit commission, came to New York City from his home in North Carolina the other night to talk sense about the nation’s perilous fiscal condition.

“I think today we face the most predictable economic crisis in history,” he told an audience on April 24 at the Council on Foreign Relations — an audience that might actually be able to help do something about the problem. “Fortunately, I think it’s also the most avoidable. I think it’s clear, if you do simple arithmetic, that the fiscal path that the nation is on is simply not sustainable.”

Bowles, a Democrat, then laid on the crowd some pretty simple, but devastating, arithmetic. He explained that 100 percent of the tax revenue that entered the Treasury in 2011 went out the door to pay for mandatory spending — such as Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security — and to pay the interest on our staggering $15.6 trillion national debt.

That means that every single dollar we spent on everything else, including two wars, national defense, homeland security, education, infrastructure, high-value-added research and the like, was borrowed. “And,” he warned, “half of it was borrowed from foreign countries. And that is a formula for failure in anybody’s book.”

Amen to that Erskine Bowles, but Erskine….these Bastards in Washington otherwise known as the “Elected Leaders” of the American Republic…

COULD CARE LESS!

Which leads us to another paragraph from Cohan’s column on what is going on in Washington DC right now….

“It is every bit as criminally irresponsible for Congress to fail to address this looming crisis as it was for Jimmy Cayne at Bear Stearns, Dick Fuld at Lehman Brothers and Martin Sullivan at AIG to ignore the financial problems at their firms in 2008.””

…but we hasten to point out to William Cohan that many of these SOBs in Washington DC who are doing NOTHING as the American Republic piles up all this debt WILL BE prosecuted in the future for their inaction under what will be a broad new crime that Federal Grand Juries made up of American Citizens will be sending out indictments on….

Crimes Against the American People

…which is what is going around the clock in Washington DC right now!

Yes, keep DOING NOTHING if you like but just like the Nazis had no logical defense after World War II for the slaughter of the Jews just saying you were an “Elected Leader” that chose to do NOTHING while America burned will not be an adequate defense either!

Now we get to the story about Golden Gate Transportation District workers threatening to strike and what are they threatening to strike over you ask?

Golden Gate Bridge workers call for strike Tuesday, urge protesters to keep span open, Mark Prado, Marin Independent Journal

The Golden Gate Transportation District is asking their union workers to….GASP!…start paying a portion of their health insurance premium, 8.5 percent of their monthly health care premiums in this case, which will come as quite a shock to the 95 percent plus Americans that work in the private sector which average paying around one-third (33 percent) of their health care premiums but OF COURSE these precious asses that work for the Golden Gate Transportation District which is running an almost $100 Million Dollar Deficit in 2012 cannot dare be asked to pay just a portion of their health care premium each month because they are “special” and thus they believe it is their “Right” to pay NOTHING for their health care as they do now.

It’s just not OUR “Elected Leaders” in Washington DC that take the path of least resistance as Robert Samuelson calls it…..

Way To Damn Many of the American People have forgotten that they as President Obama is fond of saying do their “fare share” and when you are paying NOTHING for your health insurance it is wholly right for your employer to ask for you to chip-in some to cover a BIG operation deficit….

BUT

..these are quasi-government union workers and they are “better” than the 98.5 percent of Americans that work in the REAL World where health care costs and the price of health care insurance is exploding and in the REAL World far from Government, College Campuses and Transportation Districts where REAL Costs have to paid with REAL Money (not Funny Money printed up by the Money Printers at the Federal Reserve) that is actually EARNED we and our employees work together to get those bills paid and move forward into the unknown with no guarantee of what tomorrow will being beyond we will have the opportunity to make things better…..

That is if we can ever get these Sorry Bastards in Washington DC off our backs as they continue to run up Trillions of Dollars of new debt which guarantees a poorer future for all of children and grandchildren.

And the destruction of the American Republic if OUR country stays on its’ current course.

Easily the Most Outrageous Thing About the Story Over the Weekend About Apple Finding Ways To NOT Pay Billions of Dollars in Taxes Is…. – Yes, Wacko Liberal Nuts Making Products in China That Are Then Sold to Wacko Liberal Nuts and the Original Wacko Liberal Nuts Who Are BIG Lovers of All-Things Government Working Like Hell To Get Out of Paying Billions of Dollars In Taxes in California and Elsewhere Is Very Damn Funny and Very Damn Ironic! – Meanwhile at the White House We Have…

Easily the most outrageous thing about the story over the weekend about Apple avoiding Billions of Dollars in taxes….

How Apple Sidesteps Billions in Taxes, Duhigg and Kocieniewski, New York Times

….is not that Apple has a lot of high-priced accountants and attorneys that have figured out all kinds of ways to avoid paying taxes like the “Double Irish With a Dutch Sandwich” tax avoidance ploy that is detailed in the New York Times story, but rather that Apple sits in Silicon Valley in California and was able to open a tiny office in Reno, Nevada to avoid paying what must be Tens of Millions of Dollars of Taxes to the State of California just in 2011 which when considers that almost every Apple employee we have ever run into is a Wacko Liberal Nuts is Very Damn Ironic since the Wacko Liberal Nuts believe in BIG Government spending….BUT ALAS….Apple has what is nothing less than a “California tax avoidance” office set up in NEVADA to avoid paying taxes to the Wacko Liberal Nuts in Sacramento!

Oh, that is FUNNY!

For those of us here at Mad As Hell And… that had to deal with the Wacko Liberal Nuts that are destroying the Broken State of California with HIGH taxes and TONS of regulations for decades when we decided that enough was enough with the Idiots in Sacramento we did not open up an office in Reno, Nevada to avoid paying state of California taxes, but rather since we believe that people of principle pay their obligated share of taxes to the state they are living and doing business in we moved our families and businesses out of California to states that are not conducting an All-Out and Direct Attack on the People and Businesses as is now going on in California…..except it seems against Apple which we now know the Wacko Liberal Nuts in Sacramento are allowing to get away with NOT paying Tens of Millions of Dollars in Taxes each year that they would have to pay if not for their tiny office in Reno, Nevada.

Oh, the Damn Irony….

We have Wacko Liberal Nuts at Apple that are building ALL of their products in China with what we consider to be borderline slave labor wages

AND

We have Wacko Liberal Nuts in America that LOVE Apple products and toss their principles out the door when it comes to who exactly is building the Apple products that they LOVE so

AND

Apple is using all kinds of what we consider to be BOGUS tax avoidance strategies that we explicitly tell our accountants and lawyers to stay the Hell away from because only Pieces of Crapola waste their time trying to avoid paying their taxes by hiding money in other states or countries they don’t do business in with a lot of corporate America is doing this Bullshit right now which is outrageous but then there are lots of Sorry Pieces of Crapola running very large corporations in America these days like Jeff Immelt at General Electric that we would not trust to watch our dogs.

AND

The Wacko Liberal Nuts at Apple are sticking-it-to the Wacko Liberal Nuts in Sacramento by opening up an office in the ZERO TAX state of Nevada to avoid what has to be Tens of Millions of Dollars of state of California tax and of course Jerry “I love destroying working and middle class families” Brown and the Wacko Liberal Nut Democrats in California have not and will not question Apple’s “Nevada tax avoidance office” because Moonbeam and the Nuts have their lips firmly planted on the precious asses of the employees of Apple!

Kiss that Apple ass Jerry Brown and for Damn sure don’t say a Damn word about Apple’s “Nevada tax avoidance” office Jerry because as we all know Moonbeam you are owned Lock, Stock and Barrel by the Silicon Valley Boys that lead the Wacko Liberal Nuts in Sacramento around by the noses and the Boys on Sand Hill Road in Silicon Valley tell Jerry Brown and the Nuts in Sacramento to “Shut-Up!”……

They “SHUT-UP!”…..and QUICK!

Oh, this is whole Apple avoiding paying Billions of Dollars in Taxes is actually…

Rather Damn Funny!

And for those Wacko Liberal Union Loving Nuts in the White House that LOVE Apple’s products we certainly have to wonder how you can sleep at night since ALL of those products that you LOVE are made at China at what we consider to be slave labor wages.

Yes, this whole Apple thumbing their noses at the Wacko Liberal Nuts is Rather Damn Funny and Incredibly Damn Ironic!

“There is but one coward on earth, and that is the coward that dare not know.”

“I insist that the object of all true education is not to make men carpenters, it is to make carpenters men.”

And

“Believe in life! Always human beings will progress to greater, broader, and fuller life.”

And

“The worker must work for the glory of his handiwork, not simply for pay; the thinker must think for truth, not for fame.”

And

“The function of the university is not simply to teach bread-winning, or to furnish teachers for the public schools or to be a centre of polite society; it is, above all, to be the organ of that fine adjustment between real life and the growing knowledge of life, an adjustment which forms the secret of civilization.”

And

“The cost of liberty is less than the price of repression.”

And

“Education is that whole system of human training within and without the school house walls, which molds and develops men.”

And

“Now is the accepted time, not tomorrow, not some more convenient season. It is today that our best work can be done and not some future day or future year. It is today that we fit ourselves for the greater usefulness of tomorrow. Today is the seed time, now are the hours of work, and tomorrow comes the harvest and the playtime.”

And

“It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others, of measuring one’s soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity.”

And

“It is the trained, living human soul, cultivated and strengthened by long study and thought, that breathes the real breath of life into boys and girls and makes them human, whether they be black or white, Greek, Russian or American.”

And

“Liberty trains for liberty. Responsibility is the first step in responsibility.”
