… Marxism for Net Socialism [#yuck]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 4th,2016

.. scary article …

.. John Fund is always a good writer . He wrote a dandy one here ..

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the blog column ..

.. it shows how the revolutionary left developed its campaign to impose Net Neutrality on the WWW and why they did it . Spookier still is that they want to drive investment out of the Internet sector …

.. even though the Courts have told the F.C.C. that they do not have the power to do this . They have done this , not once , not twice , but three different times . You would figure that the F.C.C. would get the message . Apparantely not ..

.. anyone for Round 4 . The Courts will hand them their collectivist [bleeps] over this …

… A Superb Description of Net Neutrality [#Seton Motley]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 21st,2016

.. Seton is a net friend of mine ..

.. I am glad that I ran across this piece by Seton …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the Web Presentation ..

.. it gives a superb presentation about what ” Net Neutrality ” is , and what it is designed to do …

.. N.N. is designed to drive out private investment from the ‘ Net , and socialize it , leaving the government in charge …

.. scary thoughts , hey ! …

— update — this was written back in November . It is more pertinent now , more than ever . Especially now the the Federal Communications Commission has adopted the Net Neutrality rules in a very , very wrongful process . They did not even open up the rules for public access , much less public comment , before the rules were adopted . Also , they really do think that those rules will  stand up in court …

.. I do not think so …

…Donald Trump should Know Better [#tax cuts]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,May 17th,2016

.. recently , on TV interviews , the Donald actually said that taxes should go up on the wealthy . Is he nuts ?? ..

.. his likely support base is from conservatives , the GOP , and right – leaning independents [and likewise among Dems] . They will want to put more money in the pockets of the common taxpayer . Who wouldn’t ?? . I sure would !! ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. the economy is crying out for the encouragement of investment . It doesn’t matter what . The issue of economics and taxes will help find the best locations and uses of investment capital . Physical capital would not be such a bad idea . But the investment in human capital would be even better . The investment in all forms of capital has been gravely discouraged during the Obama Years . As a result , businesses and individuals only invest in what they have to do , not in what they want to . Our economy has suffered as a result ..

.. you also want to encourage investment > The best way to do that is to cut rates , especially long – term rates , on capital gains on investments [no matter what the investment is , or what shape or form it is] . The longer – term the investment , the better . Raising them [somewhat] on short – term rates [to deter speculation] would not be a bad idea . Extremely short – term , not intermediate – term rates would be the target ..

.. believe you me , the Donald will track these statements back , and quickly ..

… The true losers of the Baltimore Riots [#businessmen]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,October 18th,2015

.. with all of the politics going on , people are forgetting the real cost of the Baltimore riots ..

.. yea , those folks who lost the most in the riots : the businesses ..

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. the great majority of those folks were minority owned businesses . They were not just Black – owned business , either . Many of them were Asian – owned [in particular , Korean] ..

.. those folks seem to have to most spirit and the most ambition . They also seem to have the most trouble raising money to open a business . They scrimp and save for years , and then they get burned out by a bunch of hoodlums ..

.. I wonder how many of them have insurance , and how many of them want to rebuild , or can rebuild . Just maybe not in the same place , though …

… I would tend to wonder [#Q2 GDP]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 10th,2014

.. the underlying facts on this one do not fit ..

.. especially with consumer spending . The spending by consumers makes up 65% of our economy . So , in the 2nd Quarter , consumer spending was up , but only by 2.5% …

.. and the Department of Commerce says our GDP rose by 4.00% in the 2nd Quarter ?? It does not make sense …

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the economic report ..

.. also , I will tell you why . The amount of investment , or , to be honest , the lack thereof …

.. a lot of the upside in this is from inventory buildup . You have that with an expansion , but , if there is any falloff , then look out below . Also , you have a problem with the lack of gain in general investment . You really cannot have a sustained and strong expansion without it . That is what the ObamaCraps keep forgetting , if they even give a damn about it …

… While We are Not Headed For a Recession [I think] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,June 14th,2014

.. we are not headed for a robust recovery , either ..

.. we have a bunch of dummies in the DemoCrap party , and especially in the ObamaCrap White House . These morons do not have a clue about how the markets work . If you want to create sustained positive growth , as Ronaldus Magnus did , JFK did , Dubya did , and Greenspan [no , not Clinton] did , what do you really have to create ?? …

.. [h/t — HotAir]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. simple …. investment . why investment …. take a look at this snippet from this post from HotAir on the GDP report , and you will see why …

For the first time in three years, the American economy contracted over the course of a quarter. In the interim report on GDP, the BEA estimates that the US economy shrunk by a full point in 2014 Q1, a downward revision of the advance estimate of 0.1% growth:

Real gross domestic product — the output of goods and services produced by labor and property located in the United States — decreased at an annual rate of 1.0 percent in the first quarter according to the “second” estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. In the fourth quarter, real GDP increased 2.6 percent.

The GDP estimate released today is based on more complete source data than were available for the “advance” estimate issued last month. In the advance estimate, real GDP was estimated to have increased 0.1 percent. With this second estimate for the first quarter, the decline in private inventory investment was larger than previously estimated (see “Revisions” on page 3).

The decrease in real GDP in the first quarter primarily reflected negative contributions from private inventory investment, exports, nonresidential fixed investment, state and local government spending, and residential fixed investment that were partly offset by a positive contribution from personal consumption expenditures. Imports, which are a subtraction in the calculation of GDP, increased.

.. LEC again : …

… personal consumption [consumer spending] is a big part of the economy . However , it cannot do all of the heavy lifting all by itself . Especially right now . Given the piss poor job market , folks , and the craziness that is ObamaCrapCare , you really should not expect growth to be growing great guns …

.. if this continues , then you could see some serious cost – cutting kick in , in  terms of layoffs in the job market . Then , when or if that happens , the unemployment rate takes off , and you get a  recession . Which for the DummyCraps would be occurring at the worst possible time ..

.. a recession during Obama ‘ s second term would finally shut him up . His Lordship cannot and should not expect to try a re – run of his first – term antics . The markets will not let him ,especially with inflation picking up . Hopefully , then , some of the loonie – leftie business types will sit down with His Lordship and try to make sure that that Damn Idiot gets religion on investment and its role in the economy …

… A Leader needs Trust to Be Able to Lead …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,February 27th,2014

.. when they do not have it , or they lose it , their ability to do their job is critically damaged .

.. Barack Obama has never seemed to understand this . People want to trust the person that they elect to lead them . They invest trust in those people . When those people lose that trust , or as it ebbs , these folks lose the ability to effect events . When that happens , they are done . Obama is ” done , ” except he does not understand that .

.. POTUS has lied , time and time again . The lies are either big ones or little ones , but the effects are just the same . The cumulative effect of all of the lying has damaged people ‘ s ability to trust not only what he is saying , but why .

.. God in heaven help us if there is a much more serious situation . Obama will need that well of trust , and he will not have it .

.. [h/t — RealClearPolitics]..

.. [link] to Mitt Romney ‘ s commentary . Mitt is spot on . He has been there , he has done that , time and time again …
