Slavery returns to the U. S.

Please, please don't leave my blog now, but read it.

President Obama wants the federal government to take over the college student financing industry, and has forced most private sector participants out of it already.

Student loans are not dischargeable by bankruptcy.  When a student owes the government, (s)he must pay unless the government somewhat arbitrarily extinguishes the debt.  And in time it will discharge the debts of favored citizens.  Right now the president is asking for debts to be extinguished after 10 years IF the student goes to work for the government, or into "public service" (as defined by President Obama, no doubt.  Including ACORN no doubt), the favored few, or many as many will stay out of the private sector to discharge their debts.  This takes potential entrepreneurs and workers out of productive innovation and wealth production and forces -- yes forces them into the public sector.  This clearly diminishes the wealth of the U. S. and forces former students into indenture servitude at the government's whim.  Today it's "public service" tomorrow, who know what?  Discharge debts of voters who pull the lever for Democrats?  Today, or, let's say, yesterday, partially-government-financed ACORN rounded up the lonely and destitute to vote for Democrats.

And the president arbitrarily set 10% of some part of a student's disposable income (as to be defined by the Democratic administration) as the maximum (s)he'll have to pay to service the debt the government loaned.  Government just as arbitrarily set it at 90% or 1%, and the government could just as arbitrarily establish a lower number for the disabled, or dispossessed, or addicts, or gays, or blacks, or whatever affinity group is then arbitrarily in favor.

Or the government could desire infrastructure repair and force the indebted to work for $2.00 an hour to repay the debt.  Sounds ridiculous, but arbitrary is arbitrary.  Or $25.00 for union members.  Or $1.00 for white people. 

Please think about the possibilities.  Or what if Republicans got in power, they'd absolutely discharge all the student loans of kids whose parents make over $250,000 a year or are executives at big business.  And then the $2.00 of servitude would be paid to poor people, blacks and gays.

Just think about the possibilities!

It is D-Day for the Leftist, collectivist, social justices...the Democratic Party.  From nowhere, a
Massachusetts state Sen. Scott Brown a conservative Republican is neck-and-neck with Democrat
Martha Coakley, Massachusetts Attorney General.

Did I write that Brown is a Republican?  And the seat "belongs" to dead Ted, former U. S. Senator-for-life (which ended with his death) Edward Kennedy.  Oh, did I write that Kennedy owns the seat?  I guess maybe not, since a Republican --- Oh, did I write that Kennedy the supposed-seat owner was a Democrat?  -- might obtain the seat from Ted's estate and its representative, AG Coakley.

And flying in as savior, President Barack Obama parachuted into Massachusetts to save the day for the Left.

Will he achieve his saviorship or will Coakley croak?

Stay tuned.  It is only 9:11 AM PST...There's much time left before the election is over and the results known.

One David Gelbaum was a significant far-left donor to such liberal sinks as the Sierra Club foundation, the American Civil Liberties Union and the bastion of whatever social justice is, the Democratic Party.  He recently announced he was slashing his contributions because he was placed "in a highly illiquid position" from obviously stupid and ideologic investments in...alternative energy firms.  Nearly $48 million to the Sierra Club and $94 million to the ACLU over the years 2005 to 2009 are at risk.

To Mr. Gelbaum:  Ha, Ha, Ha.  Maybe you can ask Green Billionaire Al Gore for a handout.  Perhaps you lost some money to Al's companies.  But be happy, Al got paid well.

After a year of misery for this country's freedom I sit and ponder the future as do millions of people.  While I am an intelligent, rational person I tend toward planning for the worst.  I feel the worst is happening with a bunch of economic ignoramuses, at best,  in charge of managing our economy, managing our country.  Reflexively our Democratic Leaders have a need to make certain that every segment, every corner of this country is running as they "know" is the right way.  And we thought Carter micromanaged!  

Obama and his cronies make anal look wild and crazy.  And they are winning.  A partial list: The real estate industry.  The mortgage industry. The financial industry.  The credit card industry.  The automobile industry.  Industry in general. (In the same way the Congressional Democrat/Leftists started on the mortgage industry in 1971: Do what we want or you are not allowed to grow by acquisition.  The Community Redevelopment Act.  Then banks could not acquire other banks without making loans to those people the Democratic Congress wanted to have loans, e.g. those unable to pay their mortgages, the "underserved".  That led through Barney Fife through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to the financial crash of 2007, 2008, 2009 and the current near 20% effective unemployment and former recession.  No doubt with control through coercian of industry in general Democrats will manipulate it to calamity.)

Upcoming, if they can extort or reward their way to success: healthcare industry.

But that is only economic control.

For social control, using taxpayer money Democrats will kill American's spirit of competition by forcing upon us little Obamamobiles, or Lemmingmobiles.  Little, underpowered, electric "Volkswagens" the people's wagons, all the same, all faceless, nameless and less.  But mostly running indirectly on coal.  And they intend to kill the coal industry.  Think!  Where will this leave us?

Democrats see the people -- us -- the proletariat -- as the masses to subjugate as they see fit.  They are the cadre, we are the masses.  Taking from us the internal combusion automobile, the epitome of Americanism, the essence of our differentiation, our competition, our individualization will take from us our spirit.  Uniform automobiles, the democrats' uniform we will be forced to wear and pay for.  It goes with taking our transfats, our smoking. 

Now I've got to go watch Fox News.
