The Three Fundamental Rules of Progressivism
Dec 26th, 2016 by kids4biz

penpenpen

Progressive strategy can be captured in three fundamental rules:

  1. Aggressively promote Socialist policies as the cure for all of society’s ills
  2. Demonize all opposition with personal attacks in the media and the culture at large
  3. Blame Capitalism when the policies fail miserably and return to step #1

Memorize them, pass them on to your children, find them at work throughout history and observe them in action as Progressives scramble to regain power.

Progressives have nothing else to offer America but divisiveness and pain.

GOP Pundits -BACK OFF!
Sep 19th, 2015 by kids4biz

Charles KrauthammerGeorge WillMeagan Kelly

It’s bad enough outlets like the NY Time, CNN and the MSM at large salivate at every chance it gets to denigrate, defame and embarrass GOP candidates. It’s embedded in their Saul Alinski genes to demonize the opposition, particularly when the opposition has a wealth of actionable ideas that dramatically outshine anything the Left has evangelized in theory or launched into practice. However, watching GOP pundits and party leaders fall over themselves to criticize and otherwise take down a candidate who’s demonstrating exactly what the next President needs to save the country, would be laughable if it wasn’t so intellectually pathetic!

Donald Trump is demonstrating CONFIDENCE, PATRIOTISM, HONESTY, JUSTICE, RIGHTEOUSNESS and FEARLESSNESS.

Back off and let this guy, or someone like him, win!

The Problem With Healthcare Dot Gov is Dot Gov
Nov 24th, 2013 by kids4biz

Providing quality, universally affordable health care to the masses is achieved through acts of production not acts of Congress. It is achieved by driving prices DOWN through innovation focused on consumer desires not UP through government bureaucracy focused on ideological mandates. In support of that claim, compare the way the government rolls out programs to the way enterprises roll out products, specifically, a software product realized through what industry calls “agile methods”. Technologists, particularly software developers, ought to be aware of the agile manifesto, stated here for reference;

Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
Working software over comprehensive documentation
Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
Responding to change over following a plan

Agile methods in software, and their lean analogs in manufacturing, are not the culmination of production techniques, however, they certainly represent substantial progress in these areas. Agile methods deliver tremendous value to the world at large as proof of the theory on which they’re based.

Comparing agile methods to how the government works supports the notion that the problem with Healthcare.gov is not technology, software or software developers but government itself. Let’s explore this further in the context of each guiding principle of the agile manifesto.

Individuals and interactions over processes and tools

When the government, particularly the U.S. government, makes economic policy, its impact is wide reaching, if not global. Individual desires, requests or whims and serving the “long tail” of consumer wants with custom products and services that can be summarily rejected by the populace at its discretion are not its focus nor its intent. Government methods are heavily driven by process and it generally relies on its most powerful tool, the use of force, to get things done. Minority driven ideology routinely trumps interaction with the citizenry.

Working software over comprehensive documentation

It should suffice to say that Healthcare.gov, a.k.a. non-working software resulting from thousands of pages of documentation, is the apotheosis of not adhering to principle number two. It’s important to make the point, however, that the documentation represent regulations and mandates to rule the “individuals” that were not “interacted” with in principle number one of the agile manifesto.

Customer collaboration over contract negotiation

Given government’s failure in principles one and two, it should be clear that customer collaboration is non-existent. Also, since the goal is to implement the ideology of the party in power, negotiation is not an option. If this is not clear from the history of the Affordable Care Act, it will certainly become a painful lesson now that the precedent of using the nuclear option to obliterate political opposition has been set.

Responding to change over following a plan

Finally, let’s compare how a community goes about changing the behavior of a corporation compared to changing the behavior of government. It’s not an outrageous claim to say that if enough consumers pulled back on their expenditures of Microsoft software or Walmart’s products by say as little as 20% in a quarter’s worth of time, these giants in their respective industries would rapidly address whatever issue was at hand. Try getting that kind of response, or exercising that level of control on the Federal government.

Looked at from another point of view, when it comes to economic issues, the government was specifically designed to be slow to respond to change because it has the legal power to use force. Its activity in the sphere of economics and influencing civil liberties was meant to be limited precisely for this reason. Government authority over its citizens was also meant to be curtailed by a notion, which is the exact opposite of principle number four of the agile manifesto. The government is supposed to follow a plan and that plan is the Constitution of the United States. As it pertains governments, following a plan is a good thing. The Constitution is our bastion of individual liberties preserving the freedom of voluntary interaction. When the government follows its plan, its power over the people is limited as it should be. Individuals are free to collaborate and respond in agile fashion to each other’s needs as producers, partners or consumers. Through principles of free market Capitalism, such as mutually beneficial exchange and VOLUNTARY cooperation, they interact, collaborate, respond and they make things work!

Saving the U.S. by Fighting for Capitalism
Oct 12th, 2013 by kids4biz

GOP

When things turn out EXACTLY as you feared, saying “I told you so,” is a worthless consolation.

Case in point, on September 17th of 2011, the Socialist enriched “Occupy” movement was launched. Ironically, it was also “Constitution Day,” a fact I’m convinced was lost on the “Occupiers” and sadly, on many Americans. President Obama, while not overtly supporting the movement, did so indirectly and aggressively in the context of his 2012 re-election campaign. Both the Occupiers and President Obama, while ideologically corrupt, were righteously committed.

On October 5th of 2011, Congressman Rohrabacher had the courage to submit Congressional Resolution H.RES.422, “Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives regarding the superiority of Capitalism as an economic model.” As the author of the original draft, my intent for the bill was to unite Republicans, Conservatives and freedom loving individuals around a set of principles that would offer Americans a clear and distinct alternative to Barack Obama at the polls in November of 2012. If the election of 2010 proved anything, it demonstrated that Americans want clarity and vote for justice. The Tea Party offered both and Americans voted for Tea Party ideals with passion.

Here is a link to the 2-page bill for your convenience.

Sadly, NOT A SINGLE free enterprise loving Republican or Democrat stood up to Co-Sponsor the bill and it was never brought to the House Floor for a vote. The result is what you see today; a party that is divided, spineless and lost. They are a party LITERALLY without a backbone; a backbone that a vote on the “Capitalism Awareness” resolution could have provided. Had Republicans rallied around Capitalism and made the distinction clear, the Obama Presidency would be a regrettable memory and the country would be thriving again. Instead, Republicans tragically and consistently cave to a President sitting on five years of a disastrous economic and foreign policy record.

There is still time to turn things around before the 2014 and 2016 elections. There is still time to convince the American people that it’s Capitalism, not Socialism that increases wealth, personal dignity, independence, education, health and above all, freedom! It all begins with a vote on the “Capitalism Awareness” Resolution.

Ted Cruz’ Grass Roots Tsunami versus Obama’s Sinkhole
Aug 26th, 2013 by kids4biz


Ted Cruz recently said that that it will take a “grassroots tsunami” to push legislators to stand in opposition to the national health-care law. He believes that if they do, they can win the argument against Obamacare. According to the Senator, “We need 41 Republicans in the Senate or we need 218 Republicans in the House.”

I agree with the Senator and respectfully recommend that the earthquake he needs to shake up this tsunami is House Resolution H.422, which “Express[es] the sense of the House of Representatives regarding thesuperiority of capitalism as an economic model.

The bill can be read at this link.

This 2-page resolution lays out the guiding principles of a party committed to free enterprise. It articulates ideas which are in stark contrast to Obama’s vision to transform America into a Socialist state. It expresses the essential elements of awareness of Capitalism that need to be spread among the American people so they’ll never again be seduced by the likes of President Obama.

If Senator Cruz wants to save Americans, young people in particular, from falling into Obama’s sinkhole, he’ll ask his colleagues in the House to Co-Sponsor H.RES.422. It will set in motion the tremors that will build the grassroots tsunami needed to keep America free.

Mark Levin to Sean Hannity, “We Need the Resolve the Left Has!”
Aug 12th, 2013 by kids4biz

During a recent interview on the Sean Hannity show, while discussing his new book “The Liberty Amendments, Restoring the American Republic,” Mark Levin said, “We need the RESOLVE the Left has!”

He’s correct. If there is ONE thing on which President Obama has been unequivocal, it’s his resolve to transform America into a Socialist nation. Every speech he delivers remains true to the slogan, “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”

Conversely, despite ample opportunity and the extraordinary EASE by which they can theoretically and practically support it, the Right has responded with NO coherent set of principles through which they can oppose Obama and inspire Americans.

House Resolution H.RES.422, a.k.a. “The Superiority of Capitalism” resolution, is a bill that provides the set of principles on which the resolve Mark Levin seeks, can be be based. Tragically, not a single Representative, Republican or Democrat, has stepped up to Co-Sponsor the bill and help bring it to the House Floor for a vote.

Mark Levin’s plan will only be successful, if Americans understand the fundamentals of Capitalism and the morality on which they rest. Once they have this awareness, they’ll find the resolve to save America.

The 2-page resolution can be found here.

The Art of Economic Child Abuse
Nov 26th, 2012 by kids4biz

Have I Grabbed Your Attention?

This post exposes a culture of child neglect, the methods of which are characterized as “art” versus the random acts of psychopaths.

Economic child abuse, as an art form, is achieved through a curriculum that begins with the inculcation of fundamental ideas and ends in a way of thinking that renders a child, as an adult, confused, helpless, economically burdened and abused.

If anyone wants to observe today’s masterpieces, they are on display at each “Occupy” event. They are also represented by the vast majority of young people who voted for a President who presided over the worst economy since the Great Depression. It’s within this context that the art of economic child abuse is discussed. It must be said that a child’s early mentors are often dedicated, loving and well intentioned. However, they unwittingly fall short in their efforts most likely because they themselves are victims of the art of economic child abuse and are the masterpieces of their predecessors. Let’s examine this artful curriculum.

The Prerequisites

The prerequisites are ironically, often unwittingly taught by well meaning individuals and institutions devoted to truth, honor and morality. These are parents, guardians, religious institutions and organizations whose goal is to set children on the path towards righteousness and independence. This author has no conflict with these individuals and institutions and in fact admires their effort. What is pointed out about each prerequisite is that well-intended concepts are not fully analyzed in either the early or latter stages of a young person’s education. A child is taught valuable lessons, but in each case, the axiom transforms into a tool of economic child abusers because it is not fully developed in the context of adult situations where deeper thought is required. There are four widely known prerequisites to discuss.

Prerequisite #1 – Money is the root of all evil

To be precise, Timothy in the New Testament states, “For the LOVE of money is the root of all evil.” However, if you ask, “what is commonly called the root of all evil” the answer will likely be just, “money.” This isn’t the point, however. What’s relevant is that most of us, from an early, impressionable age, are implanted with a core, immutable axiom. Deep within our souls we’ve been conditioned to believe that MONEY is the cause of ALL evil! Think about this. Arguably the most essential tool for human progress is conceptually and subconsciously grasped in our culture as the source of ultimate immorality. So what’s going on here? Why would parents, guardians and religious institutions do this to the children they love? The obvious reason is to steer them away from ILL-GOTTEN gains. The quest for money BY ANY MEANS is indeed evil. However, wealth through honesty, integrity and mutually beneficial exchange is virtuous. By not teaching and developing these essential ideas, and backing them up with concrete examples a child becomes a sitting duck for future abusers. Rather than being taught to marvel at human achievements such as the invention of the automobile, computer or air travel in the pursuit of money, children are burdened with an unearned guilt trip as soon as a few coins from a lemonade stand are collected.

Prerequisite #2 – Pride is a deadly sin

As a close corollary to prerequisite #1, this well intended lesson is directed at UNEARNED PRIDE, pride that one demands from a state of being, rather than from doing. Once again, clarification isn’t reinforced at this stage by the institutions promoting it. As with the concept of money, pride is subsequently used by the abusers as a weapon to distort and torture the psychology of a child. Ironically, as we’ll see in the advanced classes, pride is selectively promoted as a virtue to teach diversity and as a deadly sin in nearly every aspect that pertains to human achievement.

Prerequisite #3 – Charity is the greatest virtue

Some say charity means “love.” If it does then it should be changed to “love is the greatest virtue.” Charity and love, while related are two distinctly different concepts. Treating them as synonyms provides yet another tool to economically abuse a kid, in this case through unearned guilt. If you are not charitable you do not love, therefore you are not “good.” Charity, correctly defined as helping the less fortunate (the elderly, sick, disabled and some in need of temporary assistance), is indeed a great virtue, but here again the lesson is not complete. Charity was not meant to be a way of life for those who could otherwise eventually help themselves. Also, it’s never conveyed that sustained charity FOLLOWS AND REQUIRES the creation of wealth. Such sustainability necessitates the passionate (loving) pursuit of honestly earned money. The contradiction is so blatant that the only recourse is to suppress it. This is precisely what happens, and once again our young ones are sent on their way confused, defenseless and guilt ridden. Without these clarifications, the country is brought to a perverted state of existence by subsequent abusers. Nearly half of Americans rely on some form of charity as entitled minded receivers and the other half is manipulated through guilt to be givers, fearful of fighting back lest they be accused of possessing no “love.” Once again well-intended individuals and institutions have their messages distorted by real abusers.

Prerequisite #4 – You are Your Brother’s Keeper

Prerequisites 1 through 3 culminate in the “Brother’s Keeper” rule, which because it is not fully explained and developed in its various contexts, opens the door for all manner of unopposed economically and socially destructive legislation. As with charity, it is human nature to desire the well being of others. Helping our brothers and sisters is a deeply held instrument for our own happiness. However, one’s virtue does not grant a license to any otherwise capable individual to lay claim, BY FORCE OF LAW, to the products of another’s labor. Individuals should offer help voluntarily out of no obligation or purpose than to advance their own happiness through the act of giving. This form of caring, not the hubristic, sanctimonious machinations of the political and intellectual elite, is what makes Americans the greatest, most willing benefactors in history. However, the statistics on unfunded liabilities for every entitlement program in the world support those who believe, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions.” If not corrected, our children and we will live in hell on earth.

Advanced Courseware

At this point in the curriculum, economically abused children graduate beyond the jurisdiction of the well intended. They enter a den where they may still encounter those who are well intended, but they’ll most assuredly cross paths with those who purposefully promote economic and psychological abuse. Like the wolves in sheep’s clothing they are, these abusers audaciously assume the moral high ground as its self-appointed residents.

Advanced Class #5 – Diversity Rules

With reference to prerequisite #2 on pride, it’s pathetically ironic that individual pride is a deadly sin, yet group pride, commands political, economic and social worship. While a person is condemned for having pride in individual achievement, others with zero achievements routinely announce membership in a group to which other achievers belong and lay claim to unearned personal pride and respect. Americans have always embraced diversity brought to the country in the form of religion, art, music, cuisine and other cultural expressions. This new, corrupt form of diversity, seeks to divide the nation based on inherited physical attributes and demographically based claims to wealth distribution. It loathes attempts to unify the nation based on shared values of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Young people who don’t go along with this corrupt concept of diversity are the target of the vilest of labels. They are left defenseless and end up supporting political policies that result in more confusion and behavior that contributes to their abuse.

Advanced Class #6– The Temple of Environmentalism

The untaught lesson of environmentalism is that if the REAL Mother Nature spoke directly to her children she’d say, “If you make a small footprint, no one will ever try to fill your shoes.” When you consider that the distance between human ability and the ability of the next most intelligent species is measured in light years, it’s clear that Mother Nature intended for humans to walk boldly and broadly across the Earth and the Universe. She did not intend for the gifts of human life and thought to be drowned in unearned guilt, nor made subservient to species and geological formations for which conceptual awareness and morality are impossible. Responsible environmental stewardship means putting human life FIRST not last. It does not include openly condemning humans as parasites and standing in the way of every form of productive endeavor that strives to relieve human suffering. When a child has a self-image of a parasite, and is thwarted in the use of the very tools nature has provided in order to survive and thrive, abuse is inevitable.

Advanced Class #7 – No Career Day

The abusive aspect of Career Day is its glaring ABSENCE from the curriculum in any meaningful form. It’s time our educational system added a fourth “R,” “Role,” to the standard “Reading,” “wRiting,” and “’Rithmetic” agenda. When students graduate high school or college with oppressive loan debt and still don’t know what they want to be when they grow up, you have economically abused children. EVERY DAY, beginning in grade school, students should be given a glimpse into a different “day in the life of someone engaged in a productive endeavor.” Through Internet enabled classrooms, students can gain near first hand knowledge of the industrial and service oriented structure of society. Exciting, captivating multi-media “day in the life” content can be created and presented by the very institutions for which they’ll someday work. It’s unconscionable, and abusive, that after 12 or 16 years of schooling a young person’s answer to the question, “what do you want to be when you grow up” is “I don’t know.”

Advanced Class #8 – No Economics Training

Like Career Day, this is another part of the economic child abuse curriculum that’s significant by its absence. Given the lack of sound free market economic instruction in our school system, it’s no wonder the Keynesian worshipping elites are steadfastly moving the world toward economic collapse. The absence of widespread training in the ideas of Capitalism is evident in the arrogant campaign ads by Barack Obama, having the audacity to propose a direction for our country that is fundamentally a path towards Socialism. When history chronicles over 100 million deaths in countries whose economies were built on Marxism, and our young people, by a wide margin, are easily persuaded to sweep such a radically left leaning President like Obama into office, economic child abuse has triumphed.

Field Study #9 – Main Stream Media

It’s not a stretch to say our children are heavily exposed to direct Liberal bias from mainstream movies, television and news outlets. This is counter balanced to the extent they’re exposed to Conservative talk radio or happen to be fans of Clint Eastwood, Ted Nugent, Charlie Daniels or Andy Garcia. Take for instance the movie Avatar. The villains are a fanatical military leader and a heartless corporate executive recklessly in pursuit of Unobtanium, a mineral valued at $20M a kilo. In the pursuit of such ugly profits, the villains are opposed, and eventually beaten, by 10 foot blue people, who gloriously spend their lives among wild animals engaging in ponytail sex with pterodactyl-like creatures. Mainstream media’s bias towards abusive ideas is well documented. How many classic movies or summer blockbusters can you find where the hero is a profit-seeking CEO with Bruno Magli shoes? OK, Iron Man is one, but it has unscrupulous and maniacal characters representing the military industry.

Field Study #10 – The Occupy Movement

When an artist’s work is complete, the masterpiece is presented to the world. On September 17th of 2011, ironically a day when citizens young and old should know as Constitution Day, the Occupy Movement was launched. A clever photo of the movement titled “Down With Evil Corporations” carried the following caption: “Join us as we organize against corporations, using social networking (by corporations), smartphones (by corporations) serviced by wireless carriers (that are corporations), wearing clothes (made by corporations), capturing it all with cameras (made by corporations), and getting there via cars, buses, bicycles, and shoes (made by corporations). We deserve more from these greedy corporations. Join us afterwards at Starbucks!” It also cleverly labeled the popular cameras, smartphones and clothing brands produced by the evil corporations and possessed by nearly every Occupier. When massive groups of young people assemble worldwide, often with violent intentions, with NO specific goals except to express vague and unjust rage against the very institutions on which their livelihoods’ depend, the world has a front row view of the ART of economic child abuse.

Wrap Up

This article offers readers a perspective on the nature of a problem labeled “the art of economic child abuse.” To those who agree it exists, it should be clear that corrective actions lie in setting the record straight on fundamental ideas such as money, pride, charity and diversity. It also requires creating awareness of sound economic principles for our young people through DAILY career oriented training.

The crushing burden on our children of TRILLIONS of dollars of unfunded liabilities, as well as their guilt-ridden confusion, can be lifted by the ideas found in our Constitution and the works on free enterprise Capitalism. Toward achieving the latter, Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (CA-46) had the vision and courage to submit H.RES.422 “Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives regarding the superiority of capitalism as an economic model.”
The two-page bill can be read at this link.

Sadly, the bill has not yet been brought to the House Floor for a vote. Not a single Representative has stepped up and joined Congressman Rohrabacher as a Co-Sponsor and proclaimed to the nation that free enterprise Capitalism is the driving force behind our country’s greatness. If the Constitution is our country’s design, Capitalism is our engine. Parents, schools, the media and religious institutions must set the record straight on money, pride and charity. If they teach and promote the fundamentals of our Constitution and free market Capitalism, the art of economic child abuse can be wiped out.

It’s Obama’s Recession
May 24th, 2012 by kids4biz

Liberals often recite some version of, “we lost 741K jobs in President Bush’s last month of office” and then continue to give President Obama credit for saving the country from another Great Depression. They use this statistic like a weapon, not realizing it can and should be immediately turned against them. The truth of the matter is, the Democrats caused the recession and Obama is keeping it alive. It’s Obama’s recession and here’s why.

The Democrats won control of the Congress and Senate in November of 2006. The job loss under President Bush began in November of 2006. There’s a nice graph of this here contained in this article by Sean Patrick Hazlitt.

This makes perfect sense because businesses plan for the long term, when they can, and react swiftly when they can’t. With liberals taking control of both Houses and Barack Obama’s star on the rise, the outlook for business success was bleak. There are many pundits analyzing the economy and making predictions. Opinions vary on causes and cures, however a common phrase one hears in analyses across the board is “macro economic uncertainty.”

With tremendous uncertainty on the horizon, strategic thinking, increased production, HIRING, risk taking, bold thinking and all the things that contribute to innovation and a healthy, wealth building economy disintegrate. The reality of the last six years proves this.

It’s natural to ask, “Then why didn’t the economy turn around in 2010 when the Republicans took over Congress?” The answer is simple. The Democrats still controlled the Senate and Obama’s defeat in 2012 is not assured.

The macro economic uncertainty, which grew rapidly from the Democrats’ victory in 2006 and Obama’s election in 2008 not only caused the recession but it’s keeping it alive.

Are You a “Julia?”
May 6th, 2012 by kids4biz

On a recent Sean Hannity show, Kirsten Powers, using the tactic of personal demonization from the Saul Alinsky playbook, accused Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson of misogyny. For those of you who don’t know, Reverend Peterson runs an organization named BOND, whose mission statement “…stresses the importance of self-reliance, honesty, and helping others through patience.” Note the emphasis on self reliance and lack of emphasis on government funding to reach these noble goals.

Ironically, the somewhat heated exchange between Powers and Peterson occurred in the midst of the Obama campaign’s “The Life of Julia” launch. I won’t lower myself to the methods of a community organizer and call the campaign misogynistic, however I will suggest that any leader who sets the bar for a woman’s life as low as what’s been set for Julia is delivering a powerful blow to the self esteem of women worldwide. To suggest that women must rely on the government throughout their entire lives for education, health care, child care, business ventures and retirement is condescending at best.

What’s even more unconscionable about this campaign is the incessant claims that Romney’s plan to return to free enterprise Capitalism, a system built on freedom of choice and boundless opportunity, is deleterious to women. One only has to look at the condition of the European welfare states, and the behavior of those in the “Occupy” movement to find substantial, real world evidence that Socialism will be as bad for Julia as it is for Europeans and Occupiers .

Speaking of irony, one can’t ignore the fact that all of Julia’s benefits come at the expense of the hated 1%, who typically DON’T have to rely on Obama’s handouts and who have the courage and will to face life’s challenges with dignity.

The Reverend Peterson uses the power of persuasion to uplift women. Obama is using the power of the state to force women to a life of the second-hander.

The unavoidable end-game for Julia is a chronic state of bitterness towards and dependence on those that produce the handouts, which she’s been indoctrinated to think she can’t get on her own.

A key question for women for the next election is, “Are you a Julia?
