Political Speak

Oh, the horror of it all. Children being ripped from the arms of their mothers, to be separated and held in secure cages. Who could be so callous to think about doing this much less even thinking about such an act.

To commit so heinous a deed has to be the product of a fevered mind and to do this at gun point… damn! . Yet, our Government performed in this manner.

Where and how? HERE!

You remember Elian Gonzales, having one of those black guns, loaded no doubt with plenty of death dealing munitions. Ask yourself, who could do such a thing? The answer is of course: Progressives.
While we discuss such atrocities, how about warehousing illegal children in substandard conditions. We’re afraid it was the American Government. We can consider that this administration isn’t guilty of the following images.

Here Are Horrifying Photos Of Obama’s Illegal

Alien Facilities The Media Refuses To Show You

The media and political class become more and more outraged over the Trump administration’s decision to detain and prosecute immigrants illegally crossing the border.

Lost in the debate is any acknowledgement that President Obama’s administration also used detention facilities. [snip]

Photos of border detention facilities from the Obama-era, taken during 2014, look nearly identical to the ones taken during the Trump era.

You never see them, however. Here they are, taken in 2014 during a media tour of an Obama-era detention facilities in Brownsville, Texas, and Nogales, Arizona. [snip]

As the Daily Caller previously reported, “Obama administration prosecuted nearly 500,000 illegal immigrants between FY 2010-FY2016. They referred 1/5 of illegals for prosecution, which often resulted in family separations.”

Here’s the idiot who claims Trump’s separating families is not law. Wonder what this Bimbo said when Obama set this up?


Laissez le bon temps rouler

looks like Canada wants to play in the big league. Bring it on. The boycott will last as long until a Canuck needs medical treatment and is told in Canada they have to wait 18 months. Southward they will head, doing what they do now. Having lived near the Canadian border in Vermont the cross border shopping is one way. Canadians come over for gas, cheaper goods and many places take the Canadian currency at par..

Canadians boycott US products, cancel vacations to America

Blame America.

Canadians have taken to practicing pocketbook diplomacy in defense of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is caught in a trade war of words with President Trump, by boycotting American goods and canceling vacations to the United States, according to a report.

Shoppers are shunning Kentucky bourbon, California wine and Florida oranges, and avoiding American companies like Starbucks, Walmart and McDonald’s, Canadian network CTV News reported on Wednesday. [snip]

Boycotting the likes of McD’s Wal-Mart and others will just hurt the Canadian owners of the small shops and the larger companies can layoff workers to cover reduced sales. Watch for the results, you’ll know when the screaming starts in the unemployment lines.

Illegal Immigration

Tomorrow, consider what is happening in America. Those that fought and dies down through America’s fights, didn’t do so to give up the Country.

A pas de deux

When the going gets rough and tough, the State Owned Media ducks out. They have no stomach for real negotiations. Analysis you won’t see on TV.

California nodding: Death’s hallway

Progressives care, you know they do because they tell you they do. Progressives are Democrats; don’t ever forget that item. In San Francisco, they have controlled the political power base since the first hippie showed up in a zany painted microbus trailing a cloud of dope fumes. The descent into corruption has been faster and steeper than any of the famous SF hills.

Video Shows San Francisco Train Station Corridor Overrun With Drug Users

Just how bad has it become in the once beautiful city of San Francisco? Drug users have pretty much taken over part of one of San Francisco’s busiest train stations.

Bay Area resident Shannon Gafford noticed a disturbing trend during his regular commute to work every day. He couldn’t believe what he was seeing — and wanted to prove it to his friends — so he decided to take video and document the horrifically sad scene.

“One morning I said, ‘I got to pull out the camera and show my friends this. They’re not going to believe it,” Gafford told KPIX 5 – San Francisco.

Here’s two of Gafford’s videos:

That’s a pretty disgusting display of a city that clearly doesn’t give a damn about people. But, I suppose this is what you get when you have Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) representing the San Francisco district and nothing but Democratic mayors since 1968.

Here’s the Channel 5 report video:

Big Spenders

Like all socialist programs, this one too crashed and burned. The only difference is this one fell apart quickly. At least it saved the working stiffs more of their wages.

Finland’s basic income trial falls flat

Currently 2,000 unemployed Finns are receiving a flat monthly payment of €560 (£490; $685) as basic income.

“The eagerness of the government is evaporating. They rejected extra funding [for it],” said Olli Kangas, one of the experiment’s designers.

Some see basic income as a way to get unemployed people into temporary jobs.

The argument is that, if paid universally, basic income would provide a guaranteed safety net. That would help to address insecurities associated with the “gig” economy, where workers do not have staff contracts.

Supporters say basic income would boost mobility in the labour market as people would still have an income between jobs.

Finland’s two-year pilot scheme started in January 2017, making it the first European country to test an unconditional basic income. The 2,000 participants – all unemployed – were chosen randomly.

But it will not be extended after this year, as the government is now examining other schemes for reforming the Finnish social security system.

“I’m a little disappointed that the government decided not to expand it,” said Prof Kangas, a researcher at the Social Insurance Institution (Kela), a Finnish government agency.

Speaking to the BBC from Turku, he said the government had turned down Kela’s request for €40-70m extra to fund basic income for a group of employed Finns, instead of limiting the experiment to 2,000 unemployed people. [snip]

OECD finds drawbacks

In February this year the influential OECD think tank said a universal credit system, like that being introduced in the UK, would work better than a basic income in Finland. Universal credit replaces several benefit payments with a single monthly sum.

The study by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development said income tax would have to increase by nearly 30% to fund a basic income. It also argued that basic income would increase income inequality and raise Finland’s poverty rate from 11.4% to 14.1%.

In contrast, the OECD said, universal credit would cut the poverty rate to 9.7%, as well as reduce complexity in the benefits system.

Another reform option being considered by Finnish politicians is a negative income tax, Prof Kangas said.

Do welfare states boost economic growth, or stunt it?

Under that scheme, people whose income fell below a certain threshold would be exempt from income tax and would actually receive payments from the tax office.

The challenge is to find a cost-effective system that incentivises people to work, but that does not add to income inequality, Tuulia Hakola-Uusitalo of the Finnish Finance Ministry told the BBC.

As per usual the State won’t use true drivers to get people into jobs. There is always work, one may not desire that form. That soesn’t mean that that form of work doesn’t need to be done for the good of the community, country and the individuals living in the area. A short list includes ut isn’t limited to the following:

  • Public sanitation route compaction engineer
  • Water treatment plant sanitation engineer
  • Roadside beautification engineer
  • Public works janitorial engineer
  • Farm engineer: Produce identification and removal agent

Rather than pay someone for not working, give them a reason to feel good about themselves through employment. Yen paying a decent wage is necessary. So it raises the cost of some items. Inflation is one of the constant irks of life. It is cheaper than having a sub-class on the dole.

The motivator for having people take these jobs is simple: Deport the illegals back to their home countries and cut out welfare. That opens up the positions to Americans to take gainful work at decent wages. With no welfare to fall back to, the other option is a growling stomach. If that doesn’t motivate one to change their ways, international travel might. Cuba, Venezuela and California a strong practicing socialist Countries. Yes, We know California pretends to belong to the US of A but that’s a fallacy.

It is possible to imagine that many of those cut off from the largess of the Federal teat could live for some time by selling accrued “stuff” like big screen TV’s X-boxes new cars and other finery to replace the EBT card monthly loot. An example of the cash flow and benefits in a small state like Vermont totals up to the vicinity of $43,000/year.

Think you could live in that vicinity? That leaves some cash over for legal dope too.
