it’s Talking Points with the Founding Fathers.
For weeks now, I would begin to write a post only to find something else more pressing in the news. I would walk away from the computer disgusted. Come back. Start another posting. Read the news. Get disgusted. Start all over again. But not today. Today, I said enough. I will write and show how scary the world is becoming.
First, I thought a good discussion could come from the comments made by one of President Obama’s economic advisors, Elizabeth Warren. Quote: “I hear all this, you know, ‘Well, this is class warfare, this is whatever. No. There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own — nobody..”
This patriot is rolling over in the grave. There is a war against personal freedom and liberty and individualism being waged in America. It is a war waged between the haves and the have-nots by our President and his buddies. It is a war being waged by those who blatantly hate the Constitution and what it stands for. Nowhere in the Constitution does it state what is yours is mine or vice versa. The Constitution does not inspire theft. It inspires individual liberties. And we are slowly losing them to socialists like Elizabeth Warren and President Obama.
If you listen to the entire speech, she blames the wealthy, as they all do on the left, for living off the backs of other taxpayers. She says they would not have their business if the others had not educated the workers and built the roads. What do business owners do? They create jobs to sell a product that people buy and pay taxes on. Taxes that build roads and educate workers. She also says, (paraphrased), “Hey, keep some of your money for yourself. But give the rest to us.”
Ms. Warren gave the Republicans a gift. Please Ms. Warren don’t shut up. You are creating our ads. If these people win, America is doomed. The Founding Fathers are most certain rolling over in their graves.
Then late last night, WRAL had an article that Ms. Governor’s campaign is still in trouble with those “mysterious” flights. There may be criminal charges. Did Ms. Governor realize she was flying in a plane? Did she actually walk herself on it? When I am riding something besides my horse and shouting “Give me liberty…”, I know who’s driving. My shades do not blind my vision. However, if we were to believe the Democrats, Ms. Governor is absolutely innocent. She has no clue. Is she that stupid or does she believe you are? I bet my house the latter.
Then I open my snail mail and see an article on where John P. Holdren, WH Science Czar wants to “de-develop” America (below). Frightening. The left is defining who they are right in front of the American people. And they are not even afraid anymore. America be afraid. Be very, very afraid.
As for the Founding Fathers, we are not only rolling in our graves, we are digging far more trenches than President Obama could ever wish for with his “shovel ready” bullcrap. Before America is de-developed, we should decommission the man in the White House.
White House’s Science Czar Says He Wants to ‘De-Develop the United States’
“In a video interview this week, White House Office of Science and Technology Director John P. Holdren told CNSNews.com that he would use the “free market economy” to implement the “massive campaign” he advocated along with Paul Ehrlich to “de-develop the United States.”
(CNSNews.com) – In a video interview this week, White House Office of Science and Technology Director John P. Holdren told CNSNews.com that he would use the “free market economy” to implement the “massive campaign” he advocated along with Population Bomb author Paul Ehrlich to “de-develop the United States.”
In his role as President Barack Obama’s top science and technology adviser, Holdren deals with issues ranging from global warming to health care.
“A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States,” Holdren wrote along with Paul and Anne H. Ehrlich in the “recommendations” concluding their 1973 book Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions.
“De-development means bringing our economic system (especially patterns of consumption) into line with the realities of ecology and the global resource situation,” Holdren and the Ehrlichs wrote.
“Resources must be diverted from frivolous and wasteful uses in overdeveloped countries to filling the genuine needs of underdeveloped countries,” Holdren and his co-authors wrote. “This effort must be largely political, especially with regard to our overexploitation of world resources, but the campaign should be strongly supplemented by legal and boycott action against polluters and others whose activities damage the environment. The need for de-development presents our economists with a major challenge. They must design a stable, low-consumption economy in which there is a much more equitable redistribution of wealth than in the present one. Redistribution of wealth both within and among nations is absolutely essential, if a decent life is to be provided for every human being.”
CNSNews.com asked Holdren about this passage on Tuesday after he participated in an Environmental Protection Agency forum celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Clean Air Act.
CNSNews.com asked: “You wrote ‘a massive campaign must be launched to restore a high quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States’ in your book Human Ecology. Could you explain what you meant by de-develop the United States?”
Holdren responded: “What we meant by that was stopping the kinds of activities that are destroying the environment and replacing them with activities that would produce both prosperity and environmental quality. Thanks a lot.”
CNSNews.com then asked: “And how do you plan on implementing that?”
“Through the free market economy,” Holdren said.
CNSNews.com also asked Holdren to comment on the declaration he made in 1995 along with co-authors Paul Ehrlich and Gretchen Daily of Stanford University that mankind needed to “face up” to “a world of zero net physical growth” that would require reductions in consumption.
“We know for certain, for example, that: No form of material growth (including population growth) other than asymptotic growth is sustainable,” Holdren, Ehrlich and Daily wrote in an essay for the World Bank titled, “The Meaning of Sustainability.”
“Many of the practices inadequately supporting today’s population of 5.5 billion people are unsustainable; and [a]t the sustainability limit, there will be a tradeoff between population and energy-matter throughput per person, hence, ultimately, between economic activity per person and well-being per person,” Holdren, Ehrlich and Daily wrote. “This is enough to say quite a lot about what needs to be faced up to eventually (a world of zero net physical growth), what should be done now (change unsustainable practices, reduce excessive material consumption, slow down population growth), and what the penalty will be for postponing attention to population limitation (lower well-being per person).”
