Free College and The $20 Big Mac

When you listen to prominent leftists talking about wealth – and it does not matter which leftist you choose – they always talk about wealth using passive verbs. To the left, wealth ‘goes to’ specific individuals, and they speak of this as if wealth were but rain falling from the sky, unfairly landing more in some neighborhoods than others.

Ironically, where this is true – where wealth acquisition is passive – is entirely based on policies that leftists have sponsored. Leftists call for regulating a given industry. Before you know it, the biggest players in that industry are bribing regulators (and legislators) to give them unfair and unearned advantages elevating them above any possible competition. 

Consider that the only business venture Elon Musk has that was not paid for primarily through tax dollars is PayPal. Tesla, SpaceX – all of his other ventures exist for the government to take your income and give it to Elon Musk. His billions came primarily from your paycheck.

Government corruption and welfare are the only two forms of passive income out there, and both are caused by the very people who complain about inequality in wealth. Yet, the people the left attacks are not those who benefit from their policies, even though those are the ONLY PEOPLE for whom wealth is passive.

In most cases, wealth is active, which is to say that people EARNED it.

By treating all wealth as passive, government pretends to have a moral obligation to control its distribution, with leftists being utterly ignorant about how that wealth was created in the first place. Even the passive (corrupt) wealth the left gives out had to first have been earned by someone – otherwise, it would not exist for the government to seize.

The problem is that the more the nation (or any nation) treats wealth as passive, the less incentive there is to earn it. Until the brilliance of Bernie Sanders figures out a way to distribute that which is not produced – until wealth truly does fall like Manna from Heaven – all his policies will do is to disincentivize creating it in the first place.

Government is like a toilet. It sucks all the water down through the bottom, expecting that the bowl will be refilled. Leftists seem to think that all it takes to make a nation rich is to flush more often, never understanding that their policies choke off the supply of water coming into the bowl.

Eventually, the leftist flushes, and nothing happens – there is no water to refill the bowl.

And then we starve.

This is not a new story. We have seen this exact same story play out countless times in the past, with the most recent example being Venezuela – a country leftists touted as a success story just a few years ago.

Many of the people running our country are absolute idiots. Bernie Sanders, for example, recently said that two Democrats should not be able to stop a bill all of the other Democrats want. Bernie is pretending that 48 Senators is a majority – completely ignoring the fact that 50 Senators are Republicans, every one of whom understands that spending five and a half-trillion dollars we don’t have, while inflation is already running rampant, is a recipe for disaster.

Bernie Sanders can’t even count.

Joe Biden cannot tie his shoelaces, and his administration cannot seem to get out of its own way, even with a media that fawns over him as if he were the Second Coming of Christ. With store shelves running bare, Jen Psaki actually had the nerve to tell the American people that we are a bunch of spoiled children who need to ‘grow up’ and ‘lower your expectations.’

Ilhan Omar called for the complete dismantling of Minneapolis’ police department, and essentially got her wish. Now with Minneapolis and other Democrat-controlled cities having taken her advice, crime and murder are skyrocketing, and Ilhan Omar’s solution is to blame the police she does not want to have for not doing their jobs, after she largely got rid of them.

And don’t get me started on AOC. She’s so stupid that she does not even know how stupid she is. AOC thinks AOL is an acronym for her laughing.

We are headed for a New World Order where college will be ‘free,’ but it’ll be $20 for a Big Mac, $10 for a gallon of gas, and it will cost $1,000 per month to heat your house in the winter. On top of that, you will have to pay 60% of your income for that ‘free’ college, making you glad it is ‘free,’ and making you sorry that nobody can afford a Big Mac anymore.

In this world of ‘free’ college, you won’t be able to go to college, because the demand to get in will be too high. There will not be anywhere near enough seats to cover that demand, but you’ll still get to pay taxes so that other people can go, and the people who go will be those whose parents have enough money to bribe their way in.

The Democrats have already created a country where if you immigrate illegally, you get free food, free housing, free college, and free medical care, but where if you immigrate LEGALLY, not only don’t you get those free things, but you have to pay taxes to provide other people who also immigrated, but who broke the law doing it, with those things.

Rather than equal treatment under the law, Democrats are openly calling for unequal treatment under the law, such that we can have equal outcomes.

The Pentagon recently had a celebratory press conference, where it announced that Richard Levine is the first female Four-Star Admiral in our nation’s history. Apparently, we are so free as a people that the first woman to do something can now be a man.

And here is the thing about ‘free’ healthcare. Let’s say you had cancer, and you had two choices. One choice was to use a system that was rationed by the price mechanism. In that system, you would get the best medical treatments possible, and would have a 90% chance of beating the cancer and living a full life, but it would bankrupt you (even with your medical insurance), and affect your credit for seven years.

The other system is paid for through taxes, and is ‘free’ to use, but it is also government rationed and supply-constrained (with far more demand for medical care than the government can afford to provide). In this system, you will pay nothing out of pocket for your medical care, but you will be treated as a terminal patient, and will die in somewhere between six months and two years.

‘Free’ means you will not pay for something, but it does not mean you will ever receive that thing. Too often, when government acts to make things’ free,’ the people go without. This is exactly what happened in Venezuela.

My friends – we are a lot closer to collapse than you think. Wealth is created through active processes; it is earned. Some earn a great deal. Others perform tasks that society finds less valuable and earn less. But in a healthy economy, people EARN their wealth.

We are not doing that anymore, and I am afraid that if these two new leftist packages pass (the infrastructure bill and the ‘reconciliation’ package), we will find all of our true productive capacity has been flushed down the toilet.

And then what?

Our Conscious Bias on Kyle Rittenhouse, Ghislaine Maxwell & Ahmaud Arbery

Our Conscious Bias on Kyle Rittenhouse, Ghislaine Maxwell & Ahmaud Arbery

Too many, make their decisions purely because they fall on either the right or left side of the political aisle. Truth is arbitrary in these situations because the most important thing for them is getting a “win” for their team. This is why so much division exists within the United States. Gaining political power for factions of our government is more important than…

What the Faux Medicine Pirates Don’t Want You to Know

What the Faux Medicine Pirates Don’t Want You to Know

If people would stop taking the shots, then the world would likely recover. That’s what the faux-medicine pirates don’t want you to know. They will continue to catastrophize every new naturally-occurring strain of virus that comes along, hoping this will scare people into taking the toxic alleged antidote. Perhaps one day people will finally wake up to the truth…

The Criminal Justice System Goes Woke

The Criminal Justice System Goes Woke

The old “three strikes and you’re out” meaning, three felony convictions, and you face jail for life for thugs unsuitable for mixing with decent society, filled up the jails as was intended. Now, under the Progressive government process, they’re simply back out on the streets, often not even going through the trial and conviction process before they commit other heinous crimes…

Omicron: The United States of FEAR

Omicron: The United States of FEAR

In this issue of the report, we give the first modeling analysis of Omicron and its anticipated transmissibility based on the S1 receptor binding domain mutations.  Fortunately, these preliminary analyses suggest lower transmissibility than for Delta. This means if Omicron supplants Delta as the predominant strain, we may see the first turn for the crisis where cases could wind down…

Exposed Coverups Reveal Ugly Frauds Behind Fake Media

Exposed Coverups Reveal Ugly Frauds Behind Fake Media

Clear factual evidence supports lots of reasons why Democrats have much to worry about following broadly predicted GOP Congressional victories when U.S. House committee leaderships flip from focusing all attention on “getting Trump” and reversing his policies to serious scandals, including criminal acts, perpetrated by high-level members of…

Disney Relocates 2,000 Workers to Florida due to California’s Oppressive Covid Politics

Disney Relocates 2,000 Workers to Florida due to California’s Oppressive Covid Politics

Since the obtuse pandering ideologies of Covid-19 redefined the economics of California with their narratives of mandates and lockdowns, Walt Disney World Executives were gut-punched in their pocketbooks. They have now started gathering their visionaries and intelligence forces for a new plan of action to defend the Magic Kingdom from financial ruin…

The Hazards of Electric Cars Are Many, the Number of Cars Will be Few

The Hazards of Electric Cars Are Many, the Number of Cars Will be Few

The electric automobile will never exceed 10% of the cars on the road. All automobile manufacturers invest in their output, and all will be disappointed in their sales. Surely not what President Biden or Governor Newsom of California are planning for. For as long as the present government is in power, they will be pushing the electric car as another means to run our lives…

Anthony Fauci’s Role in the USA of FEAR

Anthony Fauci’s Role in the USA of FEAR

Dr. Fauci, the highest-overpaid employee of the US Government, is developing a reputation, like Joe Biden, for being wrong nearly all of the time. He moves about in the Progressive dream world of absolute power. He said: “when they criticize science, they’re criticizing me.” Precisely what science is he talking about? It must be ‘political science’ because…

The Biggest Lie in CRT

The Biggest Lie in CRT

CRT is no more based on truth than is a KKK pamphlet, and really a KKK pamphlet and CRT have a lot in common. Both pretend to provide accurate facts and accurate histories – but both cherry-pick facts to create a pre-arranged narrative. And both narratives are overtly racist. Really, the only difference between CRT adherents and the KKK is the…

FBI’s Informant Program Underhandedly Targets Americans

FBI’s Informant Program Underhandedly Targets Americans

Director Wray’s misleading testimony to Congress in March led Green Beret Jeremy Brown to very publicly release an interview he audiotaped with FBI recruiters in December 2020. In it, they offered him money to become an informant just one month prior to the Capitol event. He refused, turned whistleblower, and began sharing the audiotape on every social media outlet he could. That one decision changed Brown’s life forever…

Truth is, it’s Definitely a Pandemic of the Vaccinated

Truth is, it’s Definitely a Pandemic of the Vaccinated

As data from the most heavily vaccinated countries in the world, such as Israel, Singapore, Iceland, etc., now unequivocally demonstrate, the vaccinated are the most sickened. Data from the British government shows that the infection rate among fully vaccinated people in their 40s was 100% higher than among the unvaccinated. In the Irish counties of Waterford and Carlow, where 99.7% and 98% of all adults are vaccinated, cases are exploding…

Biden Administration Promotes New Land Grab on Farmers

Biden Administration Promotes New Land Grab on Farmers

The Biden Administration reverses back to Obama regulations, reversing Trump policy, “to restore federal protections for hundreds of thousands of small streams, wetlands, and other waterways.” This simply creates yet one more obstacle for our great American farmers to feed us healthily and economically. As if our farmers did not have enough problems already with the regular attacks from the left today…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #10

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #10

What’s the risk of receiving blood from a vaxed person for surgery? How do people with suppressed immune systems (Multiple sclerosis) handle COVID? Which is more dangerous, getting clots or forcing my platelets too low? I was told I have Covid hair. How long will this last as my hair is really thin now? And What should I take to stop the hair shedding? We’ll start this Q & A with an update from Dr. McCullough on the Omicron Variant…
