Chinese companies are developing real estate in New York City with their US dollars. US companies cannot bring their dollars back to the US because of high US corporate income taxes.
Federal government employees in the Grand Canyon national park are not paid and hungry and are accepting donations. Do you have a supply of food and money for an emergency? It can happen anywhere for many reasons. It could be a natural disaster or man made.
What if instead of a debt limit congress said we will open funding for some time like two weeks if the president will engage in discussions on expenses. The president would get the funding he wants and the congress will get the discussions they want.
This is the current negotiations for a six week extension.
The Media is having great fun ridiculing Washington politicians for playing political games. This is not a game and gamesmanship is a bad idea. This is very serious business which will affect our government and economy for a very long time. Progressives who are running our government are pushing hard for more government control which may be irreversible leading to a dictatorial government and further loss of our freedoms. Conservatives see the event as their last best hope to stop this process and retain our way of life. The middle class has been declining for thirty years. This is not play. It is a war between the forces of collectivism and individual freedom. The progressives started this war. The TEA Party was formed in opposition.

A partial government shutdown has begun. We will have a balanced budget when the debt limit is reached because the government can not borrow any money to finance the deficit. This will cause a huge reduction in GDP as government spending is reduced.
My heart goes out to the government employees and their families and I pray for them in their time of need. No one should have to live in fear of their financial welfare. I have a better plan.
This may be a good thing for the economy. We don’t really know as previous shutdowns did not last long enough to see the economic effects. We could look at the effects of the sequester. Most pundits expected the economy to stumble. Well we have had the sequester for some time now and the economy is improving. Remember that government does not make any money on its operations. The more money it takes out of the economy, the economy has less money for profitable business to expand and provide needed jobs.
Socialism destroys the economy as in the USSR, Cuba, North Korea, Greece, Italy, Spain, France, Japan, and now the USA. Abe in Japan just announced that he will raise sales taxes but compensate by increasing public works projects. The captain of the Titanic is opening the drain holes to let the water out before it sinks. They have been doing this for 20 years and it just gets worse with each new government program.
Some reading on these subjects: Atlas Shrugged, Brave New World, 1984, The Creature from Jekyll Island, etc. Note that these books were written 50 years ago.
The socialists may want to destroy the economy to solidify their control over the people. Cloward-Piven wrote in 1966 that if welfare is expanded the recipients will have to vote for their masters. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloward–Piven_strategy
This is intentional. Don’t let the socialists get you down. Support free market capitalism and defeat socialism.
So why does corporate America go along with this. Because they are making money by playing ball with government. Health care companies are booming as we pay more and more for our health care. The banks have the largest transfer of money to them in all of history. This system has been called corporate cronyism. Mussolini called it Fascism. Hitler called it National Socialism.

Here is an example of the investment power of corporate America in the long term. Fran bought one share of Boeing in 1969 for $50.00. She held this share and never invested any more in Boeing. In 1977, Boeing sent her another share due to a 2:1 stock split. In 1979, she got another share. In 1980 she got another share. In 1985 Boeing sent her two shares. In 1989 she got three more shares. In 1990 she got four more shares. She now had thirteen shares. In 1997 Boeing sent her thirteen more shares. She now had twenty six shares. We know this because she actually has the share certificates. So her investment of $50.00 has grown to 13 times the share price of $120.00 or $6,000.00 which is a 12,000% profit. This does not include dividends which she received. Now you can have an account that will reinvest the dividends by buying more shares. If Fran had been able to reinvest the dividends she would have about $8,000.00 all for an original investment of $50.00. What if she had been able to invest $50.00 each month for 43 years; an investment of $25,800 would be now be worth over $500,000.
We can do this on a national scale for all workers reaching a goal of 100% pension. Chile did this and is all ready at 77% pension. Our present system only gives 37% pension which is not enough to retire on. Please support Social Security reform. See the Social Security section for more information.

The mess in the Middle East continues. President Obama has backed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood since the revolution in Egypt started and secretary of state Clinton has worked to implement the strategy. Why our president is backing a person and group which has ties to terrorists and denies the people freedom of religion is a mystery to me. Can someone enlighten us on this?
The new immigration bill is moving forward in Congress. It addresses the illegal immigration problem but does little to improve legal immigration and help the millions of persons wanting to come to America. White people are being shut out in favor of minorities by the Immigration and Naturalization System (INS). The wait time to immigrate from western Europe is 16 years. This is intentional to rebalance the political system in favor of the Democratic Party. The first time I gave a speech on this I was called a racist. After the speech a person came up to me and said that she worked for the INS and that I was right. BTW she was black. It is the INS that is racist not me. Oh BTW I am white but my first wife was Japanese and I have three children by her. I have experienced diversity.
As to illegal immigration, if we want to stop it we need to stop giving free education and health care and welfare to illegals. The IRS accepts social security numbers from the illegals that are not theirs so they can get jobs and take them away from legal Americans. The Canadians I have met think that we are crazy on this issue. In five years of running for Congress I have never met one Democratic elected official or candidate that was not for the illegals. The latest from the D’s is to give social security benefits to illegals with illegal SS numbers. If you want to stop it, do not vote for Democratic politicians. If you are a Democrat please work to stop the madness in your party and I apologize if this offends you.

My current thinking on the Fiscal Cliff is that President Obama wants spending more that the Republicans want tax cuts. I think that Republicans could hold out for the Bush tax cuts and the debt ceiling limit. The House of Representatives approves all spending and is controlled by Republicans. Let it go over the cliff. Then we will have a balanced budget when the debt ceiling limit is reached.
While current emotions say to ban guns in public places; data shows that almost 100% of the shootings have occurred at “gun free zones”. The killers know that they can do their evil thing safely without opposition. There was only one movie theater in Aurora Colorado near the shooter that was advertised to be ”gun free” showing Batman. Other theaters allowed patrons to have guns. Of course he chose the gun free theater to kill.
Mental health of shooters is a consideration in the shootings. I think that some parents are too permissive with their children turning them into monsters. Without discipline, they want too much and when they cannot get it, they turn against society and shoot it up.
The school shootings are very sad. I have some comments here and in the guns page and education page. My heart goes out to the victims families and friends. I pray that they will find solace and that we will take steps to reduce these terrible events. Unfortunately they cannot pray in their school as that is forbidden. Is the environment in the public schools contributing to the problem? Is the material taught or not taught a factor? Should guns be restricted?
The election is over. I did not win but I will continue this blog to share ideas with you on the current political scene. I thank all my supporters and contributors and implore you to keep fighting for personal freedoms. I will continue my efforts to have programs that appeal to all persons. We are all or aspire to be Americans.
The Republicans did not win because they could not answer the attacks of the Democrats. The Democrats had lots of vunerabilies but the Republicans chose not to attack them. I was correct in that I said that a moderate Republican would not defeat a progressive Democrat.
A central theme that developed late in the campaign was the 47% that are receiving welfare payments and do not work. Romney chose to ignore the 47%. I do not do this. I feel for the poor and oppressed and want to help them. I believe that there is a better life for the poor than taking a government handout and will work to inprove life for all.
The strategy of putting people on welfare so that they will vote for you was formulated by Cloward and Piven in 1966. See these links or goggle them.

During the four years I have been running for Congress, my vision of issues has greatly expanded. I am doing this site to share my vision and to comment on current events. Please feel free to add your comments.
My programs offer 100% pension and free health insurance. I have penned two bills to be introduced in Congress that offer this. Please see the tabs on Social Security and Money to see these acts
