President Carter was imposing a windfall profits tax on oil companies;

Iran’s truculence took the form of holding American embassy personnel hostage;

and the Alaska oil pipeline was fending off objections from Congress to the Alaska Federation of Natives.

.

" It's deja vu all over again"
.
.
.

Given the remarkable symmetry of events thirty-two years ago and today—we have $4 gas,

President Obama’s determination to eliminate tax preferences for oil companies,

the Iran sanction tension,

and the Keystone pipeline debacle—why do we not consult what happened right after 1980,

when oil prices plummeted by two-thirds and stayed put for two-and-a-half decades?

As the saying goes, are we afraid of success?
.
.
.

The reason the supply-side policy mix that Reagan pursued was so successful in killing off the energy crisis of the 1970s is as follows.

Oil—like all widely desirable commodities limited in supply by geology—has an economic function, as we all know, namely to power a good part of the world.

But because of its geological limitation, it also has what you might call a para-economic function, which is to serve as a place to hide when the major currency producers (namely the United States) do not take special care to maintain the value of their currency.

In the 1970s, as today, the Federal Reserve and the Treasury were seeing to it that the dollar was overprinted and devalued, on the grounds that these actions could push down a stubbornly high unemployment rate.

The response on the part of those who had saved in dollars was to get into an investment hedge that would rise in price in concert with the dollar’s devaluation or the threat thereof, and oil was one of the favorites.

Reagan came into office saying the way you attack unemployment is by relieving currency masters of the burden of that task.

You attack the problem through tax policy.

Tax cuts at the margin will increase the real rate of return of any business enterprise, and thereby encourage more risk-taking and hiring.

In turn the Federal Reserve and Treasury can concentrate on maintaining the value of the dollar.

Socialism will usher in a new era in this county.

The great wealth of the United States will for the first time be for the benefit of all the people.

Foreign policy will be based on mutual respect, peace, and solidarity.

The people’s democratic rights will be guaranteed and expanded.

Racial, gender, and social equality will be the basis of domestic policies and practices.

Socialism is not a dream, but a necessity to working peoples lives.

Only socialism has the solutions to the problems of capitalism in this country.

OBAMA 2012!

Our country, our people, and our environment are all being destroyed by the greed of a few obscenely wealthy capitalist groupings.

Our world is threatened by the ravages of capitalist globalization,

by relentless efforts to drive wages down to the lowest possible level,

by attempts to destroy unions and all protections won by workers through struggle,

by the spread of toxic wastes, and by imperialist war.

We can't and won't let this continue.

We need radical solutions, real democracy, and real unity.

We, the workers and our allies, need to take power from the hands of the wealthy few, their corporations, and their political operatives.

We need real solutions to real problems, not the empty promises of politicians and corporate bosses.

We need peace, justice, and equality.

We need socialism.

THE CLEAR CHOICE

OBAMA 2012 !!!

Taken from Pravda ;
Obama's Soviet Mistake
By Xavier Lerma
Putin in 2009 outlined his strategy for economic success. Alas, poor Obama did the opposite but nevertheless was re-elected. Bye, bye Miss American Pie. The Communists have won in America with Obama but failed miserably in Russia with Zyuganov who only received 17% of the vote. Vladimir Putin was re-elected as President keeping the NWO order out of Russia while America continues to repeat the Soviet mistake.
After Obama was elected in his first term as president the then Prime Minister of Russia, Vladimir Putin gave a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January of 2009. Ignored by the West as usual, Putin gave insightful and helpful advice to help the world economy and saying the world should avoid the Soviet mistake.
Recently, Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term by an illiterate society and he is ready to continue his lies of less taxes while he raises them. He gives speeches of peace and love in the world while he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya and Syria. He plans his next war is with Iran as he fires or demotes his generals who get in the way.
==========
Notice the word 'illiterate'! Great - now we are being warned of 'communism' from the Soviets. Plain scary .

From the "no shit" department:

----------

Former Florida GOP leaders: Election laws meant to suppress Democratic voters

Jim Greer, the former head of the Florida Republican Party, told The Palm Beach Post that a new law shortening the early voting period in the state was intended to prevent Democrats from voting. Greer said that since at least 2009, GOP staff and consultants had discussed limiting early voting hours, which they believed helped Democratic candidates. He described current talk of eliminating voter fraud as a “marketing ploy.”

Former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist of Florida confirmed that GOP officials had sought to limit early voting in an effort to suppress Democrat turnout. He told the Post that the effort seemed to be aimed at ethnic minorities, a key demographic for Democrats.

“The sad thing about that is yes, there is prejudice and racism in the party but the real prevailing thought is that they don’t think minorities will ever vote Republican,” Greer said.“It’s not really a broad-based racist issue. It’s simply that the Republican Party gave up a long time ago ever believing that anything they did would get minorities to vote for them.”

In response to the allegations, Florida Republicans pointed out that both men are now at odds with the party. Greer resigned as chairman in 2010 after being accused of stealing money from the Florida Republican Party. Crist ran for the U.S. Senate as an independent candidate in 2010. However, Greer and Crist’s statements were also backed up by GOP consultants, who didn’t wish to be named.

Everybody capable of independent thought and observing objective reality already knew this.

But it's nice for them to confirm it.

My great uncle fought in the Pacific during WWII.

He saw things that he never wanted to talk about, and he called everyone Asian "Japs" and "nips" until he died.

No doubt he had plenty of reason to be angry at the Japanese, but that doesn't change that what he said and believed about them was bigotry.

..........

I loved him, but he was an anti-Asian bigot.

President Reagan proudly signed a immigration bill into law that said if your here you stay and to top it off show up and say you was here you stay. The dream act angers you racial hating warrior tea bag. The president Obama pending immigration will be more then Reagan's and nothing the tea bags can do to stop it. You can always bash the law over this internet but nothing else
