Franklin Delano Roosevelt...

The Great Price-Goucher.

First came FDR’s National Industrial Recovery Act, considered the flagship of the New Deal. FDR signed that in June 1933, climaxing his heroic Hundred Days of legislative mania. Back then, the economic situation was considered so urgent that members of Congress didn’t have time to seriously debate FDR’s proposals. The members probably didn’t have time to read the bills, either, before the voting began. Possibly, the Hundred Days began the American tradition of having members of Congress vote on bills they haven’t read. In any case, The National Industrial Recovery Act authorized the president to establish cartels via executive orders. He established some 500 cartels, and one of the things they did was fix prices above market levels.

The Agricultural Adjustment Act (1933), another triumph of the Hundred Days, aimed to raise prices of agricultural commodities above market levels, in an effort to raise farm incomes. Apparently the authors of the Agricultural Adjustment Act weren’t particularly concerned about the three-quarters of the U.S. population who weren’t farmers and had to pay more for food.

The Robinson-Patman Act, amending the Clayton Antitrust Act in 1936, aimed to protect small grocery stores from price competition offered by A&P, King Kullen (“World’s Greatest Price Wrecker”), and other chain stores. Because they bought goods in large volume, they obtained quantity discounts and passed savings to consumers. Less efficient small stores wanted to maintain high prices. Accordingly, the Grocery Manufacturers Association lobbied for and did much of the work drafting Robinson-Patman. Often referred to as the Anti-Chain-Store Act, it benefited wholesalers as well as small retailers, because wholesalers didn’t want chain stores buying directly from manufacturers. The bottom line was that the law made it illegal for big stores to cut prices. If private stores had conspired among themselves to maintain high prices, they would have invited prosecution under the antitrust laws.

Will the Slumlord's Buddy, President Barack Mussobama, try to outFDR FDR?

Another Take

On the legacy of Dishonest Abe.

Ciminalizing Political Dissent?

This is likely part of a coordinated effort to smash free speech.

I Did Not Know.....

That the United States Government is treating sets of political idealogues as if they were refugees from Oceania and Eurasia.

The income tax must be abolished as must many numerous government agencies.

The US Empire has to be dismantled.

Hey, Kids...

Here's a big shock.

We've got ourselves another war criminal in the White House!

Another Argument....

Against the War on Drugs.

You Want Real Stimulus?

Give bankruptcy a try.

We are, of course, heading toward becoming a totalitarian police state. Secession NOW!

The Town Clown*

Did not exactly do wonders for CNBC in recent times.

*The "Town Clown" reference is because of some similarities between Mr. Cramer and a character played by the late Bob Keeshan on the old Mister Mayor television series (CBS-1964-65) and then Captain Kangaroo.

Ladies and Gentlemen...

The Supreme Leader of these united States....

Franklin Delano Obama?

It’s something of a puzzle, isn't it? I really think it comes down to this: leftists, in their heart of hearts, hate capitalism more than they fear the total state. They can put up with anything so long as people are not free to make as much money as they want in the service of others. The resulting inequality in wealth distribution in this system, and the manner in which the free society raises up a class of natural aristocrats, is morally intolerable to them. They prefer to risk the creation of the totalitarian society rather than put their core hatreds on the back burner.

This seems to be happening again with their savior Obama. He came to power amidst the hosannas of the left, who saw in him the capacity to achieve all their dreams, whatever they were. But all he has done is extend the corporate fascist policies of George Bush – the same way that FDR extended the corporate fascist policies of Hoover.

The current challenge concerns the $165 million in bonuses that A.I.G. is paying its top employees, even while it has received $180 billion in taxpayer money, and even while the recipients of that money have been the largest banking firms such as Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank. The populist anger is rising. The Obama administration is protesting, but claims that its hands are tied. You might think the left would bolt, and some surely have.

Maybe the current occupant of the Oval Office will also be scheming to lie us into another major war, just like FDR. Wait a minute, maybe it's already happening.

Just How Free..

Is YOUR state?

Here's another take.

A Myth Shattered Anew

This may help lay to rest the fiction that Herbert Hoover was this lazzez-fiare free marketer that did nothing.

Advice For Those Lawmakers Drafting State Sovereignty Resolutions

Here is a suggestion from James Ostrowski on the LewRockwell.com blog:

Here's what the resolution should have said, if the supporters were really serious and not just chasing headlines or self-delusions.

"All state legislation enacted under threat of the withdrawal of federal funds, and all state legislation that facilitates the administration of unconstitutional federal programs is hereby repealed."

The Nazis Weren't The Only Ones

And during World War II, he became known as good old Uncle Joe?

Read this description of this little-known award-winning documentary:

"The Soviet Story" is a unique first time documentary film by director Edvins Snore. The film tells the story of the Soviet regime and how the Soviet Union helped Nazi Germany instigate the Holocaust. The film shows recently uncovered archive documents revealing this. Interviews with former Soviet Military intelligence officials reveal shocking details. "The Soviet Story" was filmed over 2 years in Russia, Ukraine, Latvia, Germany, France, UK and Belgium. Material for the documentary was collected by the author, Edvins Snore, for more than 10 years. As a result, "The Soviet Story" presents a truly unique insight into recent Soviet history, told by people, once Soviet citizens, who have first-hand knowledge of it."

Spread the important news of this powerful film to all your family, friends, and colleagues

Pro Libertate: Sentence First, Trial Never

Pro Libertate: Sentence First, Trial Never

The Land Of The Magna Carta....

Is turning into a militarized police state.

Another Indictment.......

Of the State.

Anyone who thinks...

That President Mussobama is not a socialist is either stupid or a goddamned liar.

People have made those points for hundreds of years. Somehow, and for whatever reason, many people rejected these critics. No, they said, all of this sounds plausible, but you don't understand how the sheer glory of the socialist ideal, with perfect equality and social justice, will bring about a new sense of things. Mankind will be inspired to share, create, work, and obey by the astonishing emergence of a completely new form of social organization.

Ludwig von Mises in 1920, however, added something special and new to the critique of socialism. He said that socialism in all its forms cannot accommodate any economic development beyond the hunter-gatherer stage. And the reason has to do with the socialist attack on the ownership and exchange of capital goods. Without ownership, there is no exchange, and so prices do not emerge. Here is his 1920 essay, which says it all.

Without market prices for capital goods, accounting is not possible. You don't know if you are making money or losing money, saving resources or wasting them, doing the right thing or not doing the right thing. Think of all the decisions that have to be made on the production end that require you to know whether you are wasting resources or not. With steel, do you make more buildings or trains? Or do you make cutlery or computers? Or cars or cables?

We are headed toward outright totalitarianism.

Socialism is a lie.

As I Have Stated On This Blog...

The sooner this country is broken up, the better.

The united States of America...

A banana republic?

Guess What, Kids! We're Leaving Iraq!!

Yeah, Sure.

Yeh, But He Still Lost

Don't worry folks, this guy is aiming for bigger and better things.

Like conducting a unilateral, undeclared, and unconstitutional war (which claimed over 600,000 American lives), suspending the Writ of Habeas Corpus, and silencing his opponents---in the North.

Could It Be?

Could we be seeing the beginning of the break-up of The European Soviet?

A Non Intervenionist Foreign Policy

The time has come in which this country's global empire is dismembered.

We must make a drastic change from the type of foreign policy that this country has engaged in for over a century. We must return to a constitutional, noninterventionist foreign policy.
