This morning's Union newspaper has a editorial by Editor/Publisher Jeff Ackerman regarding the monetary and economic mess the political and regulatory class has foisted on America over the years. You can read the article HERE. JeffA has it totally right. We have done this to ourselves. Every NIMBY and every trial lawyer should feel proud they were able to personally send our jobs and businesses across the seas and over the borders.
A Pravda article on China and its growth HERE is an eye opener for all the lazy butts sitting home drawing unemployment and disability checks (trust baby liberals too). While you refuse to head down to Yuba City and pick apples or almonds, or even tomatoes, the Chinese are assuming America's place in the world's economy. With a growth rate at 9.5% they will be eclipsing most countries in a short time. Their " key industrial output growth indicator surged 15.1% y/y in June"! For goodness sakes, they are on a tear for dominance! I did not know until I read this article in Pravda that China fabricates 1/2 of the world's steel! How could America go from the biggest to a also ran in steel? Unions and regulations that is how.
We have watched our country go backwards in so many industries you would think we are trying to return to the days of the Pilgrims. Yet, have any of the NIMBY's and trial lawyers and democrats learned anything? Nope. They just keep pumping out the laws and regulations and now we have Obama's administration passing regulations without Congressional approval. The EPA and NEA and all the alphabet regulators are on a tear. The politicians in DC and Sacramento don't even miss a beat when it comes to removing more items of freedom from our personal quivers. Today we get to see if the politicians that actually tried to fix the mess in Wisconsin will survive a series of recalls. If they don't it will certainly send a message to the nation that we don't want to be a great nation anymore. Defeat in Wisconsin will say it is better to be debt-ridden and broke than to be vibrant and forward looking. I hope the people see this.
If America keeps electing politicians that tax and spend rather than ones that want to cut and save we will be an asterisk in the history books of India and China someday and it may be sooner than we want. So America, get off your lazy butts and start saving our country or start take lessons in Mandarin.
