Government Motors: A few months ago, Herb Peter, a friend of mine, wrote a letter to the editor of our local newspaper referring to General Motors as “Government Motors.” I thought it was clever. Last Monday it became official, as GM entered into Chapter 11 bankruptcy and is now 60% owned by the taxpayers. General Motors, once a car company, is now a government jobs program. If you think that George Bush couldn’t find an exit strategy for Iraq, wait until you see how many years will pass before Barak Obama gets out of General Motors.
Of course, Obama doesn’t want to own General Motors. He is a “reluctant investor.” Brian Deese, Obama’s person who is in charge of dismantling General Motors, is a 31 year-old who dropped out of Yale Law School and who has never had a job in the private sector and has absolutely no business experience or knowledge of the automobile industry. He did, however, have a position in the Clinton campaign before going to work for Obama’s campaign.
If you think that General Motors has any prospect of surviving this government intrusion, you had better think again. Fortunately, there is still an original American car company out there waiting for you to buy their great vehicles; God bless you, Henry Ford!
On April 27, 2009 a foreign newspaper published an editorial titled; “American capitalism gone with a whimper.” That newspaper is Pravda, which means “truth” in the Russian language. The next paragraphs come directly from the article. I’ll leave the link for the entire article at the end of this blog. This is a sad commentary; I guess it takes a socialist to know a socialist.
American capitalism gone with a whimper.
“It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.
First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather than the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a Burger King burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy”. Pride blinds the foolish.
Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more than Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more than happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.
The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more than another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.”
