Community: (1) a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common. (2) a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals. When I hear people say “the Black community” or “the Jewish community” I shake my head in disagreement. It is… Continue reading There is no such thing as a Black Community
Like a thief in the night, Confederate statues were removed at Austin, Texas and throughout the nation. The quarrelsome that quickly unfolded afterwards is expected. It’s at the point where these “cause and reaction” events are getting predictable, at the cost of our country’s history. When there was a mass shooting at Charleston Church South… Continue reading Smashing Confederate statues benefits who?
Or do we need the war to obtain the peace? There seems to be mix messages going on. One– the MSM and liberals (pretend to) care for the Muslims by constantly attacking those who speak out against Radical Muslims. The Conservatives do carefully Always mention the word “RADICAL” when referring to the terrorist Muslims, to… Continue reading America: War or peace with the Muslim world?
The United States is a giant island of freedom, achievement, wealth and prosperity in a world hostile to our values. – Phyllis Schlafly
Demonizing “Wall Street” is as foolish as demonizing “Broadway” because you dislike theater. Yes, there are people who have worked in companies located in buildings on Wall Street that have behaved reprehensibly.
That fact doesn’t discredit the honest success of the free market.
Bernie shamelessly demonizes Wall Street in order to promote the politics of envy from which he hopes to become the beneficiary. Bernie only speaks on expanding the Government, NOT economy. (Take note on how he never calls out the Feds.)
So when little companies do try to grow as they should, and baby businesses that please their customers tend to become big businesses–that is a no in socialism. Bernie sees demons when businesses band together geographically-on Wall Street.
This closely mirrors how secular fundamentalists tend to see any group of people positively working together. By contrast, the Godly model of social organization is a vast and unrestrained network of human connection. A model that resembles the neurological connections in a human brain. Yet, another harsh reminder to the progressive left that humans hold a higher value, duty and obligation than a beaver.
Therefore, when Any individual interacts with another whether to build a family or business, the Government Must step in. Secular fundamentalist governments (Bernie wants) tend to discourage traditional family life as they discourage privately owned businesses. Freedom and human relationships goes completely against the left wing. And what a coincidence, both the family nuclear and private companies are under attack.
Lastly, who did cause the financial mortgage collapse? Was it the evil bankers of Wall Street? Or was it perhaps Senator Chris Dodd and Congressman Barney Frank and their Community Reinvestment Act empowering regulators to punish banks that failed to “meet the credit needs” of “low-income, minority, and distressed neighborhoods” which forced banks to make a quota of housing loans to high risk borrowers? But of course Congressman Frank who famously said in 2003, “I want to roll the dice a little bit more in this situation toward subsidized housing” blamed the crisis on the greed of Wall Street.
Preventing people to reach their full potential is not only damaging to the economy, but evil. It creates an atmosphere of laziness, racism (because now others who did worked hard to get what they earned have a sense of superiority over the minorities.) envy and discriminates. The opportunity to succeed should always be available- Not a hand out. Which in reality, is an insult on the people.
Keep in mind there is a big difference between a bank (company, church, education or family) making its own decisions versus being forced to act in accordance with what politicians want it to do.
Wall Street is a convenient political whipping boy and contrasts nicely with the politician’s polemic of ‘Standing for Main Street against Wall Street.’ Of course without Wall Street, Main Street’s car dealership wouldn’t be making any car loans.
God’s plan for human economic interaction was for His children to engage in free, honest, voluntary and transparent economic exchange for their benefit because, like marriage and family, business brings people together.
