Random Thoughts of the Day

As the April 15th tax filing deadline approaches, it seems I’m reminded daily what a colossal waste the government makes of my tax dollars. Liberals always whine the “rich” should be paying more in taxes, but we all know new taxes always come back to bite the real source of revenue — the Middle Class. This is especially noticeable by those of us with self-employment income, who must send in quarterly tax payments that include not only estimated federal & state income taxes but a DOUBLE portion of Social Security & Medicare (the 2nd half of which employers usually pay). So what do we get for it? I won’t go into how all the taxes I’ll pay in my lifetime probably won’t cover one tank in Ukraine. What about the generous entitlements “heroic” politicians steal from us to give to people they deem worthy?

Fun fact: EVERY government benefit that is income means-tested gives an incentive to NOT work, or at least work less. Even normally hard-working lower paid people can see that it isn’t worthwhile to take a job when it puts health care, EBT, low-income housing, or other benefits in jeopardy. And this goes beyound the obvious. For example, consider Biden’s “forgiveness” of student loan debt, which applies to a $125,000 income limit, or double that for a married couple. A doctor earning $250,000 a year might have a spouse who wants to work, who sees they will start $20,000 in the hole because of the lost benefit by going back to work. And you wonder why we have a nationwide labor shortage? Tax credits like the Earned Income Credit (which can be as much as $7000) are phased out with more income. People always adjust their behavior to government rules & benefits, especially when they have a knowledgeable financial/tax advisor giving them advice.

Yes, there are plenty of good people hit by hard times who depend on the benefits, who have unplanned pregnancies, medical issues, Biden-economy investment losses, or other problems. Unfortunately though, we have a class of people who have simply learned to game the system. If you don’t believe me, talk to someone who works with receipients in a government entitlement office, or volunteer for one of many charities such as homeless shelters. The beneficiaries share information with each other how to take advanage of every government benefit. My mother worked in such a government office most of her life. She described more than a few visitors who she couldn’t get out of her office unless she threw a job application in front of them. I personally volunteered at a domestic abuse shelter for a year. It struck me how cynical some of the full-time workers there were, and this was because so many of the people that stayed there weren’t victims of domestic violence. They were simply part of the permanent dependent class who would make up stories to take advantage of the free housing & food. So, in addition to wasting precious resources, they undermined the legitimate victims of domestic abuse.

All of us go through tough times, so I can see the need for temporary assistance like unemployment benefits, but too many people have developed a form of “learned helplessness,” who feel their only means of survival is indefinite government support. Having others support you undermines your whole self-esteem. It removes incentive to improve yourself through education, or work your way up in the job world. A $15/hour full-time job pays about $31,000 a year before taxes. Health care, tax credits, housing, food, and other benefits can easily equal or surpass that amount. So, why do it? And unfortunately, no matter what your training or education, you have to take lower paying jobs for a while before you have the experience to get a well-paying one.

It’s no wonder we have the lowest work participation rate since the 1970s. Only back then, during the high-inflation, recessionary Jimmy Carter economy, it wasn’t voluntary! Now, with Help Wanted signs everywhere, it’s almost entirely a choice. Remember that the next time you see a politician patting themselves on the back because they gave away more stolen money to secure voting blocks.

Party Loyalty and Role Reversal

A hard lesson I’ve learned over the years is that, if you support EVERY platform talking point of a political party–Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, whatever–you’re either 1) Not getting all sides of the issues, and/or 2) Not thinking things through. All parties are going to occasionally be dead wrong on certain issues, but blind loyalty takes us down directions we never thought we’d go, getting us to support positions that in retrospect, are totally inconsistent with our values and beliefs. I’ve actively followed politics the past few decades, and during that time, it’s almost like we’ve entered a parallel universe, where the Left and Right have largely switched roles. Consider the following:

    • Corporate Support/Sponsorship. For most of my life, the Republicans were the party of Big Business, but now, virtually every large American company is unapologetically in bed with the Left, and it’s not even close. The largest ones by far–Big Tech–are even farther left than most of the Democratic Party.
    • War. Since the Vietnam War, the Right has been pushing wars and involvement in foreign conflicts, while the Left resisted most of the way. That is, until the past year, it which virtually every member of the Democratic Party is suddenly pushing all-out resistance to Russia, while many on the Right are trying to minimize involvement. It blows my mind to hear people like Pelosi, Durbin, and Schumer sound like George W. Bush shortly after 9/11, especially when so many of these same Democrats passionately fought against Iraq involvement, even back in the 90s when Saddam Hussein carried out probably the most unprovoked invasion of another country the past 35 years.
    • Russia. Related to that, when Russia was part of the larger Soviet Union, back when they were one of the most brutal, repressive regimes in history, the Right was leading the charge against them. Ronald Reagan most notably resisted them in every corner of the world, famously calling them an Evil Empire. At the same time, the Left consistently took the side of the communists. Ted Kennedy, Jane Fonda, John Kerry, and countless others actively worked to undermine the U.S. in their resistance to communist expansion. It was so blatant that leaders in Russia developed a term for them — Useful Idiots. After the Soviet Union collapsed and a form of democracy started to spread, the Left largely abandoned their love of the Russians. This blew up into all-out hatred when it was perceived that Russia helped elect Trump in 2016. Most on the Right still resisted a Putin-led Russia, but the Trump attacks became so absurd that many have leaped to its defense, apologizing for and rationalizing Russian actions.
    • Protests and Strikes. Anti-war protests, led by the Left, became normalized during the Vietnam Era and have been widespread during EVERY American war since then when a Republican president was in office (which is the majority of them). Worker strikes have been overwhelmingly supported by the union-dominated Democratic Party. Remember the “Community-Organizer”-in-Chief, Barack Obama? However, protests the last few years against Covid tyranny, most notably in the Canadian trucker protest, have been harshly condemned by the Left. Many have called for brutal crackdowns, cheering Trudeau’s use of Soviet-style repression. In fact, have you heard a single member of the Democratic Party speak out in favor of the right to protest when the issue was anti-mandate? As for the Ukraine-Russia War, where are all the Leftist anti-war protests? Where are the celebrities singing for peace? Where are the ‘No Blood for Oil’ signs?
    • Censorship and Civil Rights. Growing up, the Religion Right had a reputation for censorship, famously calling for symbolic “book burning” of works in evolution, sex, and other topics they deemed inappropriate. The Left was on the side of freedom of speech at all costs, passionately defending such cases as The People vs. Larry Flynt, a censorship case against Hustler magazine. The Left also largely argued against Bush’s Patriot Act, which created unprecedented government surveillance powers and other infringements of civil liberties. Fast forward to today. The Left is wholeheartedly behind Big Tech censorship. They also regularly lead the Cancel Culture charge that destroys peoples lives and intimidates most of the population into silence. On Covid, whenever the debate is mandate vs. civil liberties, you can be sure the Left is on side of forced compliance.  The Right has now become the passionate defender of free speech & civil liberties.
    • My Body, My Choice. Probably the issue that has fired up the Democratic base more than any other the past few decades has been abortion. Any infringement whatsoever has been sold as a slippery slope to government having full control over a person’s body. The Right has of course taken the pro-life side. However, the era of Covid has launched the debate of government forcing masks and vaccines on those who don’t want it, completely reversing the roles on the “My Body, My Choice” issue.
    • Character Assassination. A rallying cry of the Left back in the Cold War era was “McCarthyism,” a practice of many on the Right to destroy the reputations and livelihoods of suspected communists, or even those who associated with suspected communists. It was an early form of character assassination based not on actions, but words and political positions. We’ve come full circle on this also, as Cancel Culture and Character Assassination are now the preferred weapons of choice against anyone who dare take a position right of center.

I learned my lesson on blind party loyalty during the George W. Bush administration. Back when I was younger and naive, fired up about 9/11, I got fully behind the War on Terror, Iraq, and the Patriot Act. I defended virtually every Bush policy. Over time too many things knocked some sense into me–no WMDs in Iraq, never-ending war, no expiration on Patriot Act powers, insane government spending, new agencies targeting American citizens, illegal immigrant amnesty, imprisoning people indefinitely without due process, and the last straw for me–the TARP big corporate bailout during the housing crisis. I think most people on the Right have learned the same lessons, which is why they have mostly abandoned Establishment Republicans, voting for Donald Trump and pushing outsider candidates.

What about the Left, have they learned anything, or are they still insanely blind to party loyalty? I’d love to go back 20 years and ask every Democrat voter, “Your political party is pushing a Russian war, is in bed with all the biggest corporations, is anti-free speech, is in favor of government forcing a medical procedure on you, believes in invoking Martial Law to crush protests, supports imprisoning people & freezing bank accounts without court order, destroys the lives of anyone with whom they disagree with politically, and believes Executive Orders without checks’n’balances should be allowed to create laws for the country. Would you still support your party?” My guess is they’d scream, “HELL NO!!!!!” But here we are in 2022, living in the Twilight Zone, where the Left has become everything they used to despise.

Good Ole Emergency Power

tweet dictator doug emergency powers prosters year in jail adds dissendents fines

If you haven’t figured it out after two years of dictatorial Covid rules, “emergency power” is a cornerstone tool of totalitarians throughout world history. Once enacted, they never go away, and they allow the fascists in power to pass arbitrary rules without checks’n’balances, or at least none that can be overturned in the short-term.

As far as I’m concerned, any law or rule passed without a full Constitutional process in Congress or Parliament is not a real law, and citizens should be under ZERO obligation to follow it. Police officers are obligated to NOT enforce it.

‘We Are Not There Yet’: As States Drop Mask Rules, CDC Stands Firm

Things in politics rarely happen by accident. A bunch of blue-state governors & media propagandists simultaneously changing their tunes on masks was clearly a coordinated effort. Why? Not because of principles or changing opinions. They simply got focus group & poll confirmation that the vast majority of people, including Democrats, are sick of the Covid tyranny. They’ve of course hedged their bets with half measures since they can’t tick off their base, which has fell hook, line, and sinker into the Covid fear hysteria.

I know it doesn’t seem like it, but there are plenty of free thinkers who lean left, and they’re the ones who’ve opened their minds and let their common sense take over. As for the rest, you can’t just flick a switch and turn off two years of non-stop fear programming. A very real human weakness, both on the Left and Right, is confirmation bias. We all tend to seek out information and interpret it according to our existing beliefs, and we avoid or discount information that goes against it. In other words, we become polarized because we generally don’t seek out the other side of stories.

But there’s a big difference between Left and Right in one way, and that is exposure. You simply CANNOT avoid hearing the liberal side of issues. Movies, TV, Netflix, 95 percent of news media, sports, public schools, socialist college professors, social media, woke corporate training & advertising, and on and on. The leftist propaganda is nonstop IN YOUR FACE! However, to get the conservative/libertarian side of issues? You have to actively seek it out. If you never read or hear from Fox News, Epoch Times, Townhall.com, OAN, or some other right-leaning sources, you may live your entire life not being exposed to an alternative point of view. You simply live in a parallel universe. Plus, in solid blue states and almost all public schools, you’re surrounded by people who think and speak exactly the way you do–liberal echo chambers. Conservatives in the same circles have been conditioned to keep quiet, causing even more sureness of the liberals’ beliefs.

So it’s not surprising that school boards and far-left liberals are being dragged kicking and screaming away from their cherished Covid power and virtue signaling. And as long as Fauci, Walensky, Biden, and the rest of the Branch Covidian leaders refuse to admit they were wrong, nothing is going to change with their deepest cult followers.
