ANOTHER OIL CRISIS?

NO, JUST ANOTHER AMERICAN POLITICAL MOVE TO PROTECT SAUDI AND OPEC INTERESTS!

This will be the 800th article I have posted on this blog and one that is extremely important. Anyone who denies history repeats itself has never worked in the petroleum industry. After spending 27 years in the aerospace industry I made a career change in 1978 and accepted an executive position with Otis Engineering that was a major part of the Halliburton Corporation. I spent my last sixteen years working in the petroleum industry. Am I an expert? No. But I did learn enough and know what to read and how to express myself professionally. My conservative views were developed over my 84 years as a freedom loving American. I challenge you to prove me wrong with verifiable facts.

I would be remiss to omit that the reason I made this career change. Our US Department of the Interior imposed a new regulation on the petroleum industry that was similar to the regulations developed by the NRC several years before. The exploration and production operations in the oil industry were baffled along with every company that designed and manufactured surface and sub-surface safety valves used in US offshore waters. Unlike the NRC program that covered all equipment used in a power plant this regulation was only required on two of the hundreds of devices used to drill and produce oil and gas. If all devices like the blowout preventer had been included the BP accident may have been avoidable. Another unusual feature of the regulation, it was not required on any onshore wells, government lands included. My 27 years work with government regulations and a new Masters Degree were a valuable asset during this period.

I missed the 1973 oil crisis but when the second man-made crisis erupted in 1983 I chose to try my lifelong dream to start my own company. I suppose I should thank OPEC and our government for creating this crisis. This allowed me to successfully end my work career by exceeding the achievement of every goal I had set for myself as a young man.

When will the American voters get enough of these government sponsored events that stop or critically cripple the American petroleum industry to create jobs and threaten OPEC’s manipulation of oil prices. Every time they force the American companies to stop drilling, it only helps OPEC eventually. After they cripple our petroleum industry, it is obvious it will take years to get it revived at costs that are just wasted to help the Arabs.

I suppose that crippling the petroleum industry to make foreign and American bankers richer is better than starting political wars to achieve the same purposes is better, but why do either? I have lived through so many political wars and energy crises to make the rich richer and the politicians more powerful that make me sick.

Do you realize that until the government and OPEC started this last crisis what the oil industry had accomplished? U.S. oil production increased from 5.6 million barrels a day in 2010, to a current rate of 9.3 million barrels a day. The government and OPEC tried to kill this boom by scaring people with propaganda about the dangers of fracking.

Until the Arabs got greedy and artificially increased the price of crude above $100 a barrel, fracking was not an option due to costs. We have known about the shale oil deposits in America for a long time but producing it was estimated to be at least $50 a barrel as far back as the 1980’s when I was with Halliburton. Until late last year and this latest crisis, it was obvious that US oil output would keep rising in 1 million barrel-plus annual leaps for years to come.

The recent drop in oil prices poses another major challenge to oil producers. Wall Street analysts, politicians and even some industry experts claim the setback will be brief and minor. Just history repeating itself with man-made crises again.

Shale oil production is totally unlike oil production in any other part of the world. In conventional wells, whether in the Middle East, the Gulf of Mexico or the North Sea. When prices drop, however, almost all conventional wells keep pumping. That’s because the variable cost of lifting the crude is still far lower than the prices it fetches on the world market.

I just read a quote that explains this. “What drives the business is the marginal cost, not the total cost,” says Ronald Ripple, a finance and energy business professor at the University of Tulsa. “Even at low prices, the production is still contributing something to cover the upfront investment.” The average person has no idea what the risk and investment can be to drill and produce oil.

As a result, the global supply of oil is what economists call “inelastic.” Even if prices crater, the oil majors and sheiks keep pumping more or less the same quantities. They’ll only stop when prices drop below the variable cost—and for most wells, they seldom sink that far.

Another determinant of oil prices, now, is demand. Oil consumption in the U.S. has fallen by over 8% since 2010, and the shrinkage in Europe even greater. Reports indicate that China and India oil usage has not accelerated anywhere near what had been forecasted. The drop in oil prices from over $100 in May to $48 has not caused a major or even minor drop in overall production.

Unlike conventional production, shale wells have an extremely short life. To produce a constant or increasing revenue, producers must constantly drill new wells, since their existing wells span a mere half-life by industry standards. I have read that shale oil production is more like mining than conventional oil production. Mining companies must dig new holes, year after year, to extract reserves of copper or iron ore.

Today the breakeven cost for producing shale oil is $65 per barrel, according to a study by Rystad Energy and Morgan Stanley Commodity Research. Producing shale oil at $65 a barrel and selling it at $48 is a rapid way to go broke.

To make matter worse, we are seeing the same actions that every crises causes. I just read that the count of rotary rigs in use has fallen from 1,930 to 1,881 since October. We saw the same reduction in offshore rigs when our government over regulated an entire industry because of the isolated drilling accident in the Gulf of Mexico. The US government is a bigger enemy than OPEC. Living in Texas it is sad to see the thousands of jobs we have created that are vanishing with the small operators going broke.

If demand for oil rebounds as some say it will and the price of oil rises above $65 again, producing shale oil may once again be profitable. I for one will be surprised if the enemies of fracking, our government and Saudi Arabia, will ever allow that to happen. I just read that the Saudis have invested heavily to gain extra capacity of 2 million barrels a day. The Saudis with our government support will use that excess to hold prices at $50 a barrel to stop all shale production.

Maintaining current production will take a massive new conventional drilling program. I am sure that the current US President and Congress will make sure that this does not happen. The political points they will enjoy with $2.00 a gallon gas will far outweigh the loss of many thousands of lost jobs that are inevitable. 

If buying OPEC oil and cheaper gasoline makes you happy just re-elect your Congressperson and Hillary in 2016. If you are an unemployed petroleum industry American and you really want to work for an above average living you probably live in the wrong country.

The political views are mine alone. I wonder how many Americans agree with me?   C Brewer

ARE AMERICANS REALLY STUPID?

NO, too many are just brainwashed by Liberal-Progressive Democrats who have perfected  the use of twisting facts to divide rather than unite Americans.

My wonderful friend, Joan Withrow, sent me this enlightning scenario about guns. Someone obviously created this to explain the parallel of  how the Democrats can so easily control enough Congresspersons and prove  we have enough “dumb” Americans to believe anything they concoct like Obamacare.

MY GUN 

Today I swung my front door wide open and placed my Remington 30.06 right in the doorway. I left 6 cartridges beside it, then left it alone and went about my business.

While I was gone, the mailman delivered my mail, the neighbor boy across the street mowed the yard, a girl walked her dog down the street, and quite a few cars stopped at the stop sign near the front of my house.

After about an hour, I checked on the gun. It was still sitting there, right where I had left it. It hadn’t moved itself outside. It certainly hadn’t killed anyone, even with the numerous opportunities it had presented to do so.

In fact, it hadn’t even loaded itself. Well you can imagine my surprise, with all the hype by the Left and the Media about how dangerous guns are and how they kill people.

Either the media is wrong or I’m in possession of the laziest gun in the world.

The United States is 3rd in Murders throughout the World. But if you take out just 4 cities: Chicago, Detroit, Washington, DC and New Orleans, the United States is 4th from the bottom, in the entire world, for Murders.

These 4 Cities also have the toughest Gun Control Laws in the U.S. ALL 4 of these cities are controlled by Democrats.

It would be absurd to draw any conclusions from this data – right?

Well, I’m off to check on my spoons. I hear they’re making people fat. 

Now let me add some other facts and hope enough voters that the Democrats call “dumb” Americans will wake up. Americans are not dumb regardless of what only Fox News has the honesty to report. The videos shown this week of the designer of Obamacare made bragging about how “dumb” we are, was the most perfect example of our Presidents agenda and perception of freedom loving Americans.

Obama is acting like a child out of control. The decision to issue more restrictive EPA rules, legalizing 4,500,000 illegal aliens by Executive Order is designed for one reason. His entire agenda is to divide Americans with every action he takes. Losing control of the Senate caused him to act like a three year old child who just had their sucker taken away from and like the child he just sulks and races to destroy something else.

Obama hates the United States, our Constitution and actually hates the majority of Americans, especially our military. His hatred for Israel is so profound he makes secret deals with Iran, China and Russia that will eventually hurt Americans more than the “dumb” will ever see.

The things that bothers me the most is why Americans are so confused, not “dumb”. The most damaging change I have watched over my 84 years is the media. We don’t get the facts from the main stream media anymore as it might offend someone. We get biased commentary that fits the ego driven actors who are controlled by the newspapers and television broadcasts  executives who have no concern for ethics or honesty. All decisions are based on revenue. My second most concern is that politicians are no longer “Public Servants”. The new name for all elected individuals is Career Politician. At the State and National level they now spend about 5% of their time devoted to the job they were elected to do and 95% to make sure they can get re-elected.

We are leaderless and the prospects for a real leader to emerge seem doubtful. At least my grandchildren will have the nearly 800 articles I have posted to analyze why they do not have the freedoms or opportunities I enjoyed. They will be working two jobs to pay for fiasco the Democrats have imposed on them when they were too young to vote.

Are you happy?

AMERICA WAKE UP?

Anyone who is sober with a scintilla of common sense should be able to recognize how the Progressive-Liberals make sure the poor people stay poor. It is sad that the Obama administration has constantly utilized income inequality to incite hate from the poor for those who can actually lift them out of poverty. The government does not create jobs for the poor, the private sector is the only hope for them to escape poverty.

The media fosters the hate campaigns instead of showing the poor what people endure being poor in other countries that control every aspect of their lives. I doubt poor Americans would be happy living in Russia, Cuba and most of African countries. Our government and the unionization of government employees has virtually destroyed our ability to make anything in America today. If our poor people were in China, where most everything we buy is made, they would still be poor. They would be working if they wanted to eat as the Chinese government does not shower the poor people with “Obama Money”.

As more foreign companies buy American industries and property while we squander our wealth, the “Obama Money Machine” will eventually be unable to borrow more from China to buy paper or ink. They will own us someday. Spending more to pay people to not work can’t last forever regardless of the propaganda espoused by Obama and our leaderless Congress.

Wake up America, even a moron can see that we live in a world where China has accomplished tremendous economic growth. China did not do this by printing more money and placing over 40% of their people on welfare. China changed century old policies and utilized the same capitalistic policies that made America a world superpower.

At the same time we have watched the Progressive-Liberals legislate, regulate and gain more central government power. The have hoodwinked the poor, the weak and the women in believing centralized government power, like the Chinese, is far better for everyone than our Constitution. We are now    embracing the same century old policies that will have our poor people living like the hundreds of millions of Chinese living in huts on less than a dollar a day.

What is wrong with income inequality between someone with rare skills who works 70 hours a week and an unskilled part time worker? Even the Progressive-Liberals who scream obsessively about income inequality actually live their lives a lot more like there should be a difference. Why don’t our Congressmen, athletes, government employees, university professors, Hollywood celebrities, Barack Obama, or Al Gore agree to work for $20 an hour? This would show solidarity and sharing with the poor?

Just like people who busted their butts and saved for the future, they all believe they deserve their money. The difference is they espouse that only “other people” should have more of their money taken away for the common good. If a CEO should have his pay limited, why shouldn’t they make $20 an hour? Obama screams that fast food workers are vitally important to the economy, why doesn’t he reduce his salary to the point where he only makes as much as they do? If Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid really believe in fighting for income inequality, why don’t they refuse to make more than the guy who spends 8 hours a day saying, “Welcome to Wal-Mart?”

When I was a boy during the Great Depression, more than 60% of Americans were living below the poverty line. Democrats scream when people like me point out that more than 80% of poor Americans have cell phones, televisions
and refrigerators while “most Americans living below the official poverty line also own a motor vehicle and have more living space than the average European. They ignore the fact that almost half of the world’s population still lives on less than $2.50 a day. If life is so bad in America why do so many immigrants still want to come to America? To be free.

Now Obama and the Democrats are tearful because the Conservatives oppose raising our government mandated minimum wage. What they will not admit is it is a fact that this reduces jobs and puts more people on welfare. The government does force businesses to pay people more than they can afford. This results in hiring better quality people, replacing the jobs with automation, moving overseas or by looking for opportunities to get rid of the positions entirely.  It appears that the Democrats desire to put as many young, unskilled single mothers and the poor out of work as possible. The more voters they can get on welfare they know they will vote their hunger rather than progress.

Making the people more comfortable is not encouraging them to succeed. No one should have goals to make a living working at a fast food business. The longer you work at an entry level job waiting for a raise in the minimum wage, you are a failure to family, society and yourself. Redistribution of other people’s income ultimately brings everyone down, especially the poor Americans who should lose faith in themselves when they become dependent on welfare.

We must make the economy stronger. We need to reduce the size of government, reduce taxes, and remove unnecessary regulations. This a proven solution that has worked time and time again.

The more the government focuses on income inequality, the harder it is to get ahead. You can see this very clearly with Obamacare, where a few people are getting subsidized care, while tens of millions more are losing their health care and paying considerably more to make up for it.

Democrats are pushing companies like Wal-Mart to substantially increase its employee’s wages. They ignore the fact that all the poor Americans who shop at discount places will have to spend more of their limited incomes to pay for it. They then increase their welfare to buy their votes. They dangle the myth that it provides the Wal-Mart employees a chance to join the middle class. In truth it means they can pay more taxes to subsidize the poor. The more money we spend “helping” the poor, the harder we ultimately make it for those very same people to ever permanently escape poverty and live the American Dream.

Democrats ignore the real causes of poverty. Poverty in America is not the fault of greed, the rich, racism, America being “unfair,” or any of the other excuses that Liberals shout. The truth is that if you stay poor in America, it’s usually because you believed the Democrats who must keep you poor by buying your votes.

 

Democrats just keep lying to destitute poor Americans and telling them that the rich became wealthy by stealing their money. What money did they have to steal? If we had any leadership in America they would tell all of the people the truth that should make some poor Americans feel bad. I really feel that survival on welfare, Obama money and cell phones, food stamps and living in a housing projects is not what any American wants, especially the poor who are already there.

Vote for freedom from the enemy, our current American government is more dangerous than all of the extremists alive and China.

“God Bless Wal-Mart”.

FACTS ARE STILL FACTS – PART TWO!

When I finished my recent article, “FACTS ARE STILL FACTS”  it motivated me to continue my search for more interesting facts to describe the destruction of the America I remember. Unfortunately the majority of people of America today really have no desire to lead the world in innovation and freedom. Today we survive on leaders from all political parties fighting to divide the people and the nation into hating each other. Someday, long after I am gone, the people will hopefully wake up and demand that America is owned by the people, not the politicians.

Congress and our President have no regard or respect for anything but re-election. They have no tenure rights, yet, but voting themselves lifetime positions, privileges and establishing a Monarchy are in their sights. When they grant voting rights to the 13,000,000 aliens they are working on now, they may have enough votes to establish the Monarchy soon!

WAKE UP AMERICA

I have searched out some facts to present from several sources to show some startling facts, that you hopefully will find disturbing. Whey did our leaders allow these things to happen? The answer is “Re-election”, their only objective and we just watch the destruction. Absorb the following fact list of destruction.

1. The United States has lost approximately 42,400 factories since 2001.  About 75 percent of those factories employed over 500 people when they were still in operation.

2. Dell Inc., one of America s largest manufacturers of computers, closed its last US manufacturing plant in Winston Salem, North Carolina last year and we lost 900 jobs. Dell has expand its operations in China with an investment of over $100 billion over the next decade.

3. In 2008, 1.2 billion cell phones were sold worldwide. How many of them were manufactured inside the United State?  Answer is Zero.

4. According to a new study conducted by the Economic Policy Institute, if the U.S. trade deficit with China continues to increase at its current rate, the U.S. economy will lose over half a million jobs in 2013 alone.

5. The United States has lost a total of about 5.5 million manufacturing jobs since October 2000.

6. The Tax Notes organization reports that between 1999 and 2008 employment at the foreign affiliates of U.S. parent companies increased an astounding 30 percent to 10.1 million. During the exactly same time period, U.S. employment at American multinational corporations declined 8 percent to 21.1 million.

7. Government reports reveal that in 1959, manufacturing represented 28 percent of U.S. economic output. In 2008, it represented 11.5 percent. It is hard to obtain more recent government facts. As we hire more bureaucrats, it takes much longer to get past the added reviews and probable tweaking to distort the truth.

8. Ford Motor Company announced the closure of a factory that produces the Ford Ranger in St. Paul, Minnesota. Approximately 750 good paying middle class jobs are going to be lost because making Ford Rangers in Minnesota does not fit in with Ford’s new “global” manufacturing strategy.

9. As of the end of 2009, less than 12 million Americans worked in manufacturing.  The last time less than 12 million Americans were employed in manufacturing was in 1941.

10. The United States has lost 32 percent of its manufacturing jobs since the year 2000.

11. In 2001, the United States ranked fourth in the world in per capita broadband Internet use. Today it ranks 15th.

12. Manufacturing employment in the U.S. computer industry was actually lower in 2010 than it was in 1975. Unless we become a Monarchy, the 2013 figures will likely be reported by 2020 as Obamacare distortions will slow down the completion process.

13. 84 percent of all printed circuit boards, an American invention that is used in tens of thousands of different products, are now produced in Asia.

14. The United States spends approximately $3.90 on Chinese goods for every $1 that the Chinese spend on goods from the United States. One prominent economist is projecting that the Chinese economy will be three times larger than the US economy by the year 2040.

15. The U.S. Census Bureau says that 43.6 million Americans are now living in poverty and according to them that is the highest number of poor Americans since 1941 that I remember well. 

WAKE UP AMERICA

How long can the United States continue to believe it is a great nation?  We have allowed our politicians to amass the largest debt in the history of the world. This clandestine attempt to increase our standard of living to every American is impossible and everyone but the morons that elect our leaders know it can’t be done.

Politicians have de-industrialization the United States and every man, woman and child in the country should be worried.  The majority of Americans do not have the foggiest idea what is crumbling around them. Perhaps enough people will wake up, get involved and demand that we stop this destruction of the greatest country on Earth.

The United States is destined to become the first “post-industrial” nation in history. History proves that every great nation and empire eventually became fat and lazy and squandered the wealth that their forefathers had left them. Sadly the pace at which America is wasting away is absolutely at warp speed. What country was at the forefront of the industrial revolution? It was the United States of America. It was America that showed the world how to mass produce everything from automobiles to televisions to airplanes. The United States has become a nation that consumes everything in sight and yet produces increasingly less.

How many Americans actually know that trash is the number one thing that we export to the rest of the world? We have become complacent and watched our economy self-destruct and keep electing the clowns that get richer.

I remember when America actually out produced the rest of the world combined. Today we consume more than the rest of the world.

Is this the kind of a future you desire to leave to our children? Am I the only one who prays that my children have a better life than I did?

Unfortunately, most Americans have no idea what is going on around them. Please share this article with as many freedom loving Americans as possible. 

WAKE UP AMERICA

ENVIRONMENTAL MADNESS FACTS!

China has 19% of the world’s population, but consumes

53% of the world’s cement

48% of the world’s iron ore

47% of the world’s coal

And the majority of just about every other major commodity.

In 2010, China produced 11 times more steel than the United States.

New World Record: China made and sold 18 million vehicles in 2010.

There are more pigs in China than in the next 43 pork producing nations combined.

China has the world’s fastest train and the world’s largest high-speed rail network.

China is currently the number one producer in the world of wind and solar power.

But don’t use it themselves.

They manufacture 80% of the world’s solar panels,

They install less than 5% and build a new coal fired power station every week.

In 1 year they turn on more new coal powered electricity than Australia’s total output.

China currently controls more than 90% of the total global supply of rare earth elements.

In the past 15 years, China has moved from 14th place to 2nd place in the world in published scientific research articles.

China possesses the fastest supercomputer on the entire globe.

Chinese consume 50,000 cigarettes every second …

They are already the largest carbon dioxide emitter and their output will rise 70% by 2020!

Our politicians, tree huggers, European and other world “scientific lunatics” pushed by Al Gore are going to save the planet with electric cars, Chinese solar panels, ethanol and cap and trade taxes to fund re-electing the same politicians.

Now, that sounds like a plan you would expect from our Congress and we just keep voting for them.

Democratic wisdom is keeping the people dumb and buy their votes and it certainly is working.

TODAYS AMERICA- WHY WE NO LONGER HAVE ENOUGH JOBS?

Did anyone watching the State-of-the-Union last night here one word on why we can’t make these things in America again? No!

Our President and Congress ignore the problems which are “REGULATIONS, UNIONS and POWER”. They just love to soak it to the energy industry so we can make OPEC  and AL Gore richer.  C Brewer

ANOTHER FOUR YEARS of WHAT?

We happen to be in Houston this week licking my wounds from the election and baby sitting our youngest granddaughter. So far in addition to hoping I make it until 2016, I have watched another $50,000+ disappear from my retirement savings. The future is now controlled by the Socialist Democrats as we have over half of the people living off the government. The Republicans will make one last losing attempt to stop the change to a Socialist Democracy but when they get stomped in 2014 and lose control of the house it will be all over. This country has lost its will to be free while in search of Utopia that is merely a pipe dream.  

The Republican party has died by self-inflicted suicide. The radical right of the GOP has never given up on overturning Roe vs Wade even though they have to know the women will never let this happen. Their last breath will be in 2014 when they lose everything one more time.

Look at the vote of the Hispanic population and it will eventually be the biggest voting block of the future. Change  must happen and it will as they will have control of Texas in the next few years. If we don’t relax the immigration rules, the African-Americans will have to get off welfare and go back to work to educate and manage their healthcare. Without the Hispanics paying some taxes, they would be better off in the future to go back home as the welfare will be  running dry.

I did a lot of work in Mexico and the Mexican worker there is a hard-working individual and is handicapped by having a lousy and crooked government to deal with. Now we have the same lousy and crooked government here to deal with.

What prompted me to write this article was an experience at lunch about 30 minutes ago in Baytown Texas. Norma and I went to visit a 96-year-old friend who is in an assisted living home there. On the way back to our daughters house, we stopped for lunch. The only language spoken by the people surrounding us was Spanish.

I worked in 32 countries to save enough to enjoy my old age. When I was in Japan it was my problem to communicate and everything printed was in Japanese. Same thing in China, Malaysia, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Germany, Norway, etc. They had no responsibility to make sure I could understand anything.  None of these places were interested in changing their culture to satisfy my desires.

Why can’t someone in our government say whoa and explain that we accept them as Americans like we did the Germans, Polish, Italian and other immigrants that made this country great in the past. We do not print ballots in German or the other languages because these people wanted to be Americans.

I believe the American people would welcome anyone willing to work as an American. Why can’t the Hispanic people, who send most of their earnings back home, just agree to be Americans and all opposition would be softened? If they insist on changing America into a Hispanic country, they will never be welcome by the majority of Americans or by me.

We have spent billions pacifying Hispanics with special treatment and they continue to refuse to even learn our language, that is wrong and I could care less if you disagree.

I beg anyone who reads this article to comment on my suggestion, yea or nay, so some hopeful dialog will help wake up the people to demand that we establish English as our language. If we are going to have multiple languages accepted by our society, then make everyone learn Spanish and make it our official language. We are supposed to be one people, so let’s be one people again. Just do something to bring happiness back in America where people used to like each other regardless of where they were born.

OBAMA’S MEANEST ACTION YET!

I am retired from Lockheed-Martin and it saddens me that something like this can happen in America. Obama has doctored every statistic imaginable like unemployment to hide the facts from the people. That is bad enough but the news-media hiding these facts is the lowest act of deception I have ever seen in a supposedly free country. These kinds of chicanery are expected in Russia, China and the communists world but why in America?

NEWS RELEASE

The White House has asked Lockheed-Martin to violate the law and NOT issue notices of lay-offs until December (after the election)

Can it be anymore clear who we are dealing with? He will do anything to get re-elected and if he does….God help America. Lockheed Martin is going to lay off 123,000 defense workers due to Obama’s downsizing of the military. This hit the Drudge report yesterday. This is true! The law requires Lockheed to give 60-day notice to all to-be-fired employees within 60 days. That drop dead date would be November 1st. Since this would be bad for the election, Obama has promised that our government would cover all Lockheed severance packages to fired employees if Lockheed would not release the names and locations of those losing their jobs until after the election! Send this to all you know since it will never show up in the news. This posting is from a defense contract newspaper called The Hill. Read details below:
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS
Watching the news all day has been scary. They are reporting that the polls show that Obama is running even  or ahead in Florida, Ohio, Wisconsin, Colorado. I understand the people in the northeast and the west coast vote for democrats but from the heartland it is unbelievable. Any sane person who has watched the movie 2016 or cares about the murder of our people in Libya that can vote for a democrat is un-American. I have always questioned the sanity of any democrat after they elected LBJ and Carter but to re-elect Obama is mindless unless you are rich or sucking on the government teat. Wake up folks we are getting flushed down the Chinese toilet and they do not have welfare. C Brewer  

WAKE UP AMERICA!

I received about five “E” mails this week, all alike, asking me to participate in a “BUY AMERICAN” program. It appears that Diane Sawyer had a special report recently to reveal the lack of American made products that exists in a middle class American family’s home.

The message included a statement that if every American spent $64 more than normal on USA made products this year it would create 200,000 new jobs.

I wonder how many new jobs would be created if our government would stop buying anything if it was not made in America. We buy Russian helicopters to give to other countries. We buy, God knows how much, to maintain armed forces in Germany, Japan, Korea, Iraq, and Afghanistan alone. Where do we buy products to support hundreds of embassies around the world?  

Does it bother anyone but me why we stopped making the things we need in America? When I was a boy the only thing you could buy that was not made in America was cheap toys made in Japan. As there was little money to live on, these toys were the only thing you could buy for pennies. Strange as it probably seems to most people today; we had high unemployment; no social programs; mothers that actually raised their own children; teachers that educated you that did not have to buy liability insurance. Sound impossible to anyone?

In the late thirties the government did provide commodities to the disabled but if you were able bodied you worked building the infrastructure of roads and the National Park System our President says is crumbling today. You did not get welfare, food stamps or unemployment. Social Security started when I was about 8 years old and I started paying into the program at 8. I worked helping a blind vendor sell papers, tobacco, candy etc. at his booth in the local post office. Fifty six years later I got my first check that our current President tells me is an entitlement rather than something I worked for.

What Ms. Sawyer and her network presented was propaganda to encourage people to vote to re-elect President Obama. China, Japan, Korea, Canada and I could name many more are not the reason we buy their products. Our government is the reason we have no choice but to buy their products.

The news media ignores the real reason we no longer make things to sell in America. It is called stupidity. No other country in the world has to comply with the thousands of regulations imposed on American businesses by our government. Look at the financial crisis in Europe today. Unions along with the governments have caused the problem that will hurt everyone because of greed. The US is racing to catch up and possible go broke before Greece and the other greedy governments.

Chew on these facts I will share. I know a person who went to work for General Motors when he was 18 years old. He worked 31 years before he was able to retire at 49 with a decent monthly check and reasonable benefits. In fact his benefits exceed what I receive from Medicare and are free. Most Americans see Medicare as a free program for the elderly. Prepare yourself, it is a long way from free. My wife and I pay about $750 per month in premiums to the government and insurance companies for supplemental coverage. Back to my facts, the retired person I used as an example is now fifty eight years old and enjoying life. If he just reaches my age, 82, he will have been retired for 33 years. Folks, this is why we are going broke, we can’t afford this and a moron should understand. Before anyone challenges my facts, this person is my son.

World War 11 was financed with War Bonds. We were encouraged to buy American and I was 78 years old before I bought a foreign made vehicle. I understand the value of this movement but the best products made in the world today are from offshore. I have written other articles about this if you choose to read them. The vehicles made by American owned companies and “Government Motors Corporation” are inferior products that are priced to support greedy unions.

The biggest thing wrong in America today is our government gone mad. Worse than that is the government unions that have created the same situation the industrial unions did to destroy our ability to make things we buy. When we go broke and we probably already have, what country will be hiring these greedy bureaucrats to manage their destruction?

America is involved in the biggest war since it was born. The major difference is we are at war with ourselves. If we do not wake up fast we will see insurrection as our leaders have divided Americans worse than the slave situation. The next civil war is coming if we don’t wake up!  C Brewer

“GOD SAVE AMERICA”

MARXISM

 

I read an interesting article on Townhall.com yesterday that had a topic I felt needed to be included in my series on Socialism.

Remember I wrote about Karl Marx’s contribution to Socialism and included how he was largely responsible for Russia ending up as a Communist nation. The article was written by Mike Adams and I will credit him with direct quotes and repeat some of his facts.

This will hopefully influence your perception of what Obama and the Progressive’s of both major political parties have been preparing for over 100 years. Progressives are usually non-violent, domestically, as you will see later. They want power and your money.

Mike stated, “There are more Marxists teaching in Sociology Departments in America than living in the former Soviet Union. These sociologists hold themselves out as scientists despite the fact that they fail consistently in their efforts to predict the future. In fact, most of them lack the competence to accurately predict the past.” He identifies that among the least competent and most intellectually dishonest is Gary L. Faulkner, Professor Emeritus from the University of North Carolina.

Faulkner recently claimed that Marx predicted the events we are seeing in the Occupy Wall Street movement. He also claimed that events from the 20th Century bolster the credibility of Marx as both an economist and political prophet. He further castigates Republicans for their refusal to embrace Marxism. Faulkner states, “There is something really ironic about Republican’s hatred of Marxism. Years ago Marx predicted capitalism would collapse. The reason – workers would rebel.”

That prediction came true when we watched rebellions in China, Russia, North Korea, Cambodia, Afghanistan, and Vietnam. These resulted in Marxist governments that killed nearly 100 million citizens. “Marx was a violent man who unleashed racist and anti-Semitic assaults on anyone who dared to oppose the use of violence as a means of creating change.”

“Marx would have carried out violence on a larger scale. But his poor physical condition prevented him from doing so. That left the work to followers such as Lenin, Stalin, and Mao. His heavy smoking and drinking zapped his energy. His refusal to bathe – a trait also shared by Mao – resulted in boils all over his body. They brought on nervous collapse and fits of rage – both of which would have prevented him from working and earning his own living had he decided to do so.”

Marx had a passionate hatred of capitalism because he was simply unable to handle money and to organize his own financial affairs. His inability to stay out of debt explains why his theory of capital is so deeply rooted in anti-Semitism. It also explains why he stole many of his most deeply anti-Semitic passages from Martin Luther.

“Although he wrote about the need for revolution, Marx had a strange hatred for those who came from the revolutionary class. His son-in-law Paul Lafargue was from Cuba and had some black blood. He tried to keep his daughter from marrying him and later resented him for refusing to honor his wishes.” Consequently, Marx referred to him as “Negrillo” and “the Gorilla.” Would he have loved Obama?

Marx considered both work and the worker to be beneath him. He lived nearly his entire adult life off of handouts from Engels, the co-author of The Communist Manifesto.

“Marx understood that there would always be men incapable of taking care of themselves. He understood that they would resort to violence whenever they did not get what they wanted. He also understood that there would always be academics who admired gross incompetence and the propensity towards violence.”

I can quickly identify American leaders who share Marx’s beliefs and our current Attorney General is a prime one. How many of our current leaders can you identify as Marxist? Send me your list to compare with mine.
