Hand Over Your Pie…Or Else

Following is a modern day fairy tale. Once upon a time, an ordinary everyday woman named Ms. Rouge decided to open a bakery. You see, she was gifted in the art of making beautiful, delicious pies….chocolate ones, strawberry ones, coconut creme, key lime, pecan…every pie known to man could be made better and more tasty by Ms. Rouge’s talented hands. Ms. Rouge knew that to open her own bakery she needed to hire some helpers to keep her bakery clean and spiffy. So she put advertisements in the newspaper and put a sign in the door. Many people walked by … Continue reading Hand Over Your Pie…Or Else

Jesus: The Anti-Socialist

My last few posts have revolved around the way Barak Obama is knee-deep in socialistic thought. A commenter took offense at my opposition to socialism and wrote: The basic underlying belief of christianity is that we must treat all with equality, as we are all equal in God’s eyes. Capitalism is the house of the devil. It allows for a few to walk on the backs of the many, something that Jesus was opposed to. So your argument against socialism is contradictory to your christian beliefs. I chose not to allow that comment on that post because I felt it … Continue reading Jesus: The Anti-Socialist

The firefighter, the plumber, and the atomic scientist are on the same footing socially and economically. A young child who shows aptitude for mathematical reasoning is quickly moved into a … Continue reading Different Mouthpiece, Same Message

Obama and Marx

All the new info I’ve learned about Senator Obama’s socialistic worldview brought me to investigate some of Karl Marx’s quotes.  I thought it would be interesting to compare the words of the two: Karl Marx, in The Grundrisse (1857) The pay of the common soldier is also reduced to a minimum — determined purely by the production costs necessary to procure him. But he exchanges the performance of his services not for capital, but for the revenue of the state. In bourgeois society itself, all exchange of personal services for revenue — including labour for personal consumption, cooking, sewing etc., … Continue reading Obama and Marx

Obama told a plumber that yes, he would probably raise his taxes. “It’s not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they’ve got a chance for success too,” Obama responded. “My attitude is that if the economy’s good for folks from the bottom up, it’s gonna be good for everybody … I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”  (see the whole article here). Obama’s attitude is taken straight from the textbooks under the title “Socialism.”  The American Heritage Dictionary defines socialism as: … Continue reading Just Hand Over Your Pie And Nobody Gets Hurt
