Jay's Tuesday Free Enterprise Quote - 24 April 2012

"The way to crush the bourgeois is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation."

Vladimir Illyich Ulyanov (AKA Nicholai Lenin) 1870 - 1924

First, we have to define a couple of words.

The word bourgeois, for Lenin, was to help him define society into three players - the workers, the exploiters and HIM.

An exploitative bourgeois did not simply describe the fat, mean, selfish, sloppy, gluttonous man, with money dropping from his pockets and blood dripping from the club he used to keep everyone in his factory working 19 hours a day.  The bourgeois also included the single shop keeper, a baker, or accountant, or business manager.

(The other two players were proletariats, or workers, and HIM.  If you were like HIM, it was important to do everything he said.  One had to truly be like HIM.  In the end, this group really was the exploitative fat, mean, selfish, sloppy and gluttonous, which Orwell characterized in his book Animal Farm as the pigs.)

Second, we need to define inflation.

Inflation is gubment policy!  And so for a number of reasons, the biggest being that gubment derives the most benefit from it. 

How?  First and foremost, the currency becomes further devalued (sound familiar?) such that the national debt is easier to pay off.  The national debt is BORROWED and as the currency becomes cheaper it is easier to keep the scheme going.  While this seems like it will end in economic doom, this has been the gubment's policy for decades.  Very Keynesian, you know...

Second, inflation gives the APPEARANCE of economic "growth."  Economic growth does not necessarily mean economic health!  Was wealth really being accumulated during the real estate boom?  No you say?  You mean that wealth wasn't health?  Those soaring "values" did improve the gubment coffers though!  Didn't it?  Sales taxes, property taxes - you name it.  Why, they needed to hire more people to handle it all! GROWTH!  Which, by the way, builds in future taxes, that do not go away when the "wealth" evaporates.

Third, inflation is a built-in, hidden tax.  Notice how 45% of our budgets (energy and food) are mysteriously excluded from the gubment's inflation statistic?  Is this a mere oversight?  The gubment says these two things are very "volatile," and therefore not accurate indicators.  What thinkest you?  When the basic family budget is strained because of those two things that really aren't' getting more expensive, don't you know, it is NOT inflation.  Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain...

So, inflation allows the spending scheme to stay afloat, our economy is getting "bigger," and, as people are pushed into higher tax brackets, more taxes are collected without passing new tax laws!  How cool is that!

So, when you hear how we must "PAY" for gubment, and borrowing for that can ONLY come from taxes, remember, remember, remember, brothers and sisters, Vlad's statement - THAT IS HOW YOU CRUSH AND TAKE OVER.

And control.  Two legs good, four legs bad.

VOTE SMART.

Morning Jay so what got your dander up this morning?  It could be a host of things but I learned last night a certain political party is trying to amend the 1st amendment.  This would let the government decide what a corporation, political action party etc could write and not right.  It does stop short of permitting free speech but if you did the news could not report it.  It's coming my man I'm calling my congress people today

HA! We have a discussion in this house, often as a matter of fact, about how the Soviet system really worked. My husband grew up in the dear old Soviet Union. The sad thing is when it starts to look good because everyone had a job and health care. OK, so there were many other things that don't look good, but when it starts to look good you know you are in big, big trouble.

Jay, one of my Russian friends told me how mad she was when communism collapsed because they were always told they had the best healthcare, best automobiles, best education system and the best housing. When the airwaves opened up and they could see the rest of the world, she realized she was living in a third world country.  The key to Lenin and other statest's success is to make sure the masses remain ignorant.

Jay -- you have done your part to clearly explain the problems with inflation, even if it is hidden inflation, like we are experiencing now. Keep up the good work!!

James - if "they" could, the Constitution would be entirely rewritten.

Erv - and Stalin got rid of Leon right after Lenin's death.  With and axe in the parlor.

Andrea - have him read the book Animal Farm by George Orwell.  He will get a kick out of it.

Mike - third world or less.  What they had was a military, supplied by plans and ideas stolen from the USA.

Steven - the best inflation is HIDDEN inflation!  Then they get away with more...

That's all a part of the plan Steve.  All a part of the plan.  Grind them down.

Vote Smart? They are all part of the problem. The system is fat and corrupt and the people are being screwed.

Voting smart means voting away from the bloat and built-in crap Jim.  Of course there are problems with the big-gubment types there now!  They simply have to be removed.  We are in true jeopardy.

That seems too true Steve.  Everything the Grand Imam learned while he wasn't attending class at Columbia.

And thanks for the feature!

It's going to take an "extremist" in the other direction to start the pendulum swinging back Tom!  We are in jeopardy now.
