“Extremist” Presidential Candidate Ron Paul

Posted in Politics by bobadelmannrocks on July 26, 2011

In 1964, Barry Goldwater first said: “I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” Statists have been trying to hang that millstone around the neck of conservatives ever since. I’m happy to report that they aren’t succeeding.

Debt Ceiling Talks: from Disagreement to Impasse to Crisis

Obama’s Letter to Americans: Stand Behind Efforts to Raise Debt Limit

Posted in Economy, Politics by bobadelmannrocks on July 22, 2011

I actually think the President believes this stuff. It’s a faith based not on reason or experience or facts or history. It’s based on faith that the state knows best how to take care of the little people. It’s called, in its mildest form, statism. In its most virulent form, it’s called communism, complete with gulags, torture chambers, starvation, and murder.

Minnesota Shutdown Ends with Compromise Pleasing No One

Posted in Politics by bobadelmannrocks on July 21, 2011

It is common to consider that politics is the art of compromise. My worldview is different. My worldview is that collectivism is like cancer. It cannot be dealt with except to excise it out of the body or the cancer will kill it.  Life is a continual battle against death. Political freedom is the result of a continuing successful battle against collectivism. This business of “co-existing” with it is bunk. To press the matter, simple resistance, even if it is successful in the short run, will ultimately fail. No team ever won a game (this is no game) strictly through defense. At some point, the freedom fight must move from a purely defensive posture to an aggressively offensive one. Once the cancer is excised, then we can start the rebuilding process.

President Obama Pledges Spending Cuts to Eisenhower Era

Posted in Economy, Politics, Spending by bobadelmannrocks on July 19, 2011

Ann Coulter has said that liberalism is a form of mental illness. President Obama may be a good example. Anyone who doesn’t know what year it is, or how many states are in the union, or when his birthday is, is someone who bears watching very carefully.  But we already knew that, didn’t we?

Looking for Green Shoots in the Economy

Posted in Economy, Elections, Politics by bobadelmannrocks on July 19, 2011

It’s easy to laugh at the attempts of mainstream economists to see green shoots where none exist (or have faded away). It’s harder instead to find something positive to say, but I found it. In a perverse sort of way: the worse the economy gets the better the chances that Obama will be a one-termer.

August 3: Day of Reckoning

Posted in Economy, Politics, Spending by bobadelmannrocks on July 18, 2011

The whole conversation and debate over the debt ceiling reminds me of two guys fighting over a bar tab on the Titanic.  Shakespeare said it best: This is “Much Ado About Nothing.”

Food Crisis Used to Push Global Governance

Posted in Economy by bobadelmannrocks on July 17, 2011

The food crisis is just one more example of the insiders’ attempt to establish a world government, using the crisis as a pretext. I think it will fail. I also think they will continue their efforts.

Fed Insiders Selling Inside Information

Posted in Corruption, Federal Reserve System by bobadelmannrocks on July 16, 2011

Matthew 7:16 applies here: “By their fruits ye shall know them.” The closer we look at the fruits of the Federal Reserve, the more clearly we see the fraud and deceit. They can’t escape. Their cover is blown.
