Argentina Can Teach Us a Lesson or Two

Posted by Nancy on July 26, 2011

We can learn a lot from Argentina.  Like, did you know that in 1902 it challenged the United States for the position of second riches nation in the world (Great Britain was first), and now it is an impoverished nation?  Or, did you know that in 1989 inflation in Argentina hit 3000%?

What could possibly account for such a dramatic change of fortune?  Could it be the same redistributionist forces that are currently plaguing the United States, just decades ahead of us?

I found this great Power Point presentation on DeweyFromDetroit.com.  It was made from a post on DougRoss@Journal.  I can’t get it to imbed so you’ll have to follow the link – sorry – but it’s worth the effort and the long loading time.  A real history lesson on what can happen when a government forces mandatory pensions, health care, low income housing, and other government handouts until the country is bankrupt.  Oh, and don’t forget massive union support.

With so many worldwide examples of why this doesn’t work from the past 100 years, how can leftists still believe that THIS TIME it will be different.  THIS TIME it will work.

Click the bottom line link.  Then click on the pictures to advance them.

Argentina’s past can become our future, if we let it.

Please, Report Me to the New White House Snitch Czar

Posted by E. on August 5, 2009

While the above videos are about health care reform (or health insurance reform, or just plain health reform (the White House keeps changing its terminology du jour) (and what in the heck is “health reform” anyway?  gonna make me sick if I’m not already?) ) this post is really to call your attention to the new governmental request that you rat out your neighbor, comrade.

If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.

That from the official White House website, which claims that the above videos are fishy because they inaccurately portray the Potentate’s views on health care.  The more accurate views, they say, are in clips like this one (that they claim we won’t show you):

Seriously, I’d rather have not included it just because SIX MINUTES LONG!  But really, about the first two minutes are banter between a member of the press corps and Dumbo (hey, HE is the one who thinks his ears are big, it’s in the video), so you can skip forward to the 2 minute mark if you want (but you may miss the ear insecurity).  Anyway, if you watch the whole video, listen carefully to what he is saying.  And remember this very important word:  SUBTEXT.

So, watch the first two videos and listen to what he has been saying for years, and then watch the White House video and listen to what he is saying now, and really?  They aren’t all that inconsistent (how many times does he use the word “if” when speaking about private health insurance?).  The White House just thinks we’re too stupid to see it.

But, we’re not.  At least, I’m not.

So, there you go.  I’ve blogged negatively on the web about President Obama and his ideas on health care reform.  Lucky for you, the White House has set up its official snitch line.  Go ahead.  Be a stooge.  Report me.

Then, if Obama makes it into a second term, sit back, relax, and watch history begin repeating itself (speaking of long, you’ll want to scroll down and start with the quote about Moshe the Beadle).

I Hope Atlas Shrugs Soon

NEW YORK, May 19 (Reuters) – General Motors Corp’s (GM.N) plan for a bankruptcy filing involves a quick sale of the company’s healthy assets to a new company initially owned by the U.S. government, a source familiar with the situation said on Tuesday.
