Some of my associates have begun to inquire of me, “What is wrong with you? Why are your politics like this? Why are you so anti-socialist?”

Here is my primary political motivation in that regard. It used to be that you voted for the guy who was going to do what was right! But the body politic has gone through a massive socialist or perhaps even communist phase shift since those days and instead of voting for the guy who is going to do what is right anymore, today people, socialists primarily though many don’t even know it due to the “dumbing down of America,” today people vote for the guy who is going to give them the most. “Vote for me,” that politician says in so many ways,” I’ll give you the more.”

The problem with that campaign promise is that what that politician promises you is not his, it is mine and that of people like me. He is not giving you what he owns, he is redistributing my earnings and that of others like me through a system of taxation in which I cannot intervene even if I and everyone else knows that what they are doing with the money raised from the taxes is blatantly wrong.

And in so doing that the contemporary politician has grown those socialist classes (it’s not just one people, it’s the socialist classes, all of them) that require such redistributed funds to exist, requiring in fact more and more money, fostering now a giant, money-grubbing monster which produces and harbors a massive criminal class that finds it totally acceptable and perhaps laudable to attack people like myself, even physically. You hear stories of it in the media but even more of it anecdotally, that is if someone you know hasn’t already been victimized by the product of the system. It’s everywhere. Whole swaths of population move from their homes to escape the writhing, biting monster created by socialism. It’s not just the burden of taxation, it is the systematic destruction of the lives of good and honest people, entire cultures. It’s not just the dollar cost, it’s the imposition on and the systematic destruction of the lives of good people, a way of life for many Americans. The cost is too high!

I hope that answers your questions. If it doesn’t, you weren’t looking for answers in the first place, you are probably just looking for another handout.

Now that I’ve published a multitude of anti-socialist essays and observations, many of them focusing on what I call the “sex-for-money social welfare system,” I’ve attracted the ire and attention of any number of publicly avowed socialists, many of them women since it would seem, they claim, that many of my essays against socialism seem to focus on programs that women tend to utilize, such as programs that support single mothers (why of course, forty plus percent of children are born to single mothers annually today).

But other publicly avowed socialists have joined their ranks and have begun slinking around my perimeter, making themselves a nuisance realizing that now, after reading my positions on socialism that they haven’t a leg to stand on. Modern American Socialism is a scam on the people, a people afraid to address the matter, a people blighted by the constant draining of their income from a myriad of social welfare and entitlement programs that are incessant and pernicious upon the individual and which the individual often pays in to but is not eligible from which to draw. So, we see that socialism is selective and discriminatory.

Some of the socialists that I know directly have demonstrated to me in so many ways and in a rather revealing manner that they like to keep tabs on me, though they claim that is not what they are doing. They try to determine where I am at various times throughout the day and night and they often accuse me of all sorts of anti-social behaviors (what are really in these circumstances anti-socialist behaviors) without any basis in fact, knowing that even though there is no factual foundation to their accusations merely waging such accusations or positing such innuendo is a taxing effort to deal with.

I liken what they are doing to an inquisition. Their methods are no different. You see it in the character assassinations going on in the pandering media. You see it in the hatred of men and the male sex. It is everywhere, the constant drive to make you surrender what you have for someone else, to give up the product of your toils to pay for the product of someone else’s pleasures. It’s everywhere today.

And though I am not an overly religious person, I would not hesitate to say that is has now reached biblical proportions. But you don’t even hear the church saying anything about it. That’s how powerful the socialist giant has become, even the church, the self-avowed arbiter of right and wrong is afraid to tread in the shadow of the socialist monster.

Questions, questions, questions. Where are you? What are you doing? Why are you doing that? Why don’t you believe you should have to pay for me and people like me having sex on your dollar? Why shouldn’t you be required to pay to raise my child, to feed all of my family even though I never married and I have three or more children, we are all in the same country? There must be something wrong with you for wanting to keep your own money and not pay for this outrageously expensive bastard nation I am making. You must be evil. You must hate. You are a hater because you don’t want to pay for me to fornicate all day while you work. That list goes on and on. And they always have an excuse for their constant inquiries. And where I live they usually outnumber me by several factors to one.

Politicians are afraid of addressing the problem because the media profits from the circumstances and the politician is afraid of the character assassination which will arrive from the media meant to snuff their political career. Corporations are too sensitive (could be read as cowardly by some) to deal with the matter because they are afraid of being seen in a negative light and many more profit from the circumstances, a ready and accessible source of income in the many social welfare and entitlement programs created that overtax the middle class. Everyone knows there is a problem but nobody except people such as me are doing or saying anything about it. With the power of the media behind it and a substantial portion of the population, the socialist giant is just such a behemoth that to be within the realm of its scrutiny can have a crushing, marginalizing effect.

Yet others hear us and identify with our message against the socialist giant, you can be sure. There are still many among us who are not afraid of the socialist inquisition.

Though it may not be entirely organized, it is a socialist front that I and others are dealing with, there can be no question. It is the result of decades of media indoctrination and socialist education that makes it impossible for the socialist to even distinguish that their behavior is the real anti-social behavior to begin with.

As I said, I liken their behavior to an inquisition, complete with an incessant list of questions, accusations for which there are no defenses, and innuendo originating often from the cavernous mouths of publicly avowed socialists.

I can answer all of your questions with one answer.

F&#* your socialist inquisition.

I published this on labor day but after reading it several times it occurs to me that it is a universal message about the contemporary America Politic.

It is my opinion and that of many conservatives and liberals I know that labor would improve its position in The United States if labor unions would stop allying themselves with the overt socialist candidate that believes in large government entitlement programs.

The true conservative wants to get the socialist giant off of its back but has no qualms with workers desiring a qualified wage or safe working conditions. Indeed, many conservatives could be considered members of labor as they are themselves “working class,” a statistic which cannot be disputed when you consider the large number of conservatives elected to public office during the last five years. Obviously working class people are voting conservative, not just the wealthy as the socialists would have us all believe.

One only needs to read the news to see the massive abuses of such programs as SNAP, or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (aka food stamps), or any other of a whole host of social programs. One only needs to watch the news to see that the socialist system is out of order and subject to all manner of abuse and misuse at massive tax payer expense.

There is nothing more demoralizing to a working person than to find out when examining their pay statement a quarter or more of their pay is gone when it isn’t necessary.

So if labor unions and other such labor organizations truly want to help the working classes, maybe they should concentrate on getting the socialist giant off of the backs of the voter first before they go and support a candidate that carries the socialist cause.

Labor and socialism are not one in the same and it is time for labor to recognize that or it will continue to lose ground in the war to save its membership.

Labor will serve the working person best when labor ceases to be a socialist front.

One thing socialists and communists don’t want the public to know about socialism and communism is that the social programs they derive make things more expensive for those who are taxed to pay for the programs.

Let’s take rent assistance, for example. If you skim tax dollars off of the middle class (that’s where the money comes from) to redistribute it to pay for single women having children out-of-wedlock (nearly half of all babies born last year were born to single mothers), single mothers who need to stay home and take care of their babies, what is effectively happening is that an increase in the demand for rental housing is taking place and there is a corresponding supply of money, rent assistance dollars, to satisfy that demand. The socialists are using your money, tax dollars, to pay for that rent assistance. You are thinking, “Awe, isn’t that nice, I’m helping someone keep a roof over their heads.” But that’s only a small portion of it really, the good part.

The social programs put more money into the rental economy and thereby enable landowners to increase their rents. If all people don’t have enough money to pay the rent, landlords have to lower the rents. When demand is high, when money is available as in the form of rent assistance, prices are kept high, artificially high. The key word is “artificially” high. When demand is low, prices go down.

Now there is nothing wrong with landowners getting paid for renting their property, but social programs such as rent assistance are a double whammy to you and your dollar in that they totally undermine your very own housing dollar by working against it, driving the price of housing up for you and also taxing you for the dollars to do it! That’s what the socialists and communists don’t want you to know! They are forcing you to screw yourself right out of your very own place!

The same holds true for most major social programs and entitlements, Medicare, Medicaid, you name it. If you examine the cost of health care since the implementation of those two programs, what has happened? Recognize a pattern, yet?

Shhhhhh! Don’t tell anyone. They don’t want you to know, either. I’m not supposed to say anything, or else!, they say.

The media doesn’t tell you, do they? No, they want people sitting at home in front of the television or making more babies on the rug in front of it. If people are working, they can’t watch TV. Only those who ascribe to the socialist system can stay at home and watch TV all the time because they get the check, the assistance, and the food stamps. And many do. One in six Americans now receives food stamps, almost fifteen percent of the population. How many of them are working?

Corporate media actually likes the socialist system because it creates a large audience of viewers that they can market their products to in order to get the money from the food stamps and assistance checks. Is it big business? No, ladies and gentlemen, it’s huge!

How about food stamps? We’ve been talking about that lately. As I’ve described, when you throw a bunch of money in to any market, prices go up. It’s basic economic theory. If the supply remains constant and demand increases, prices go up. When you put $74 billion dollars into the market economy demand increases and so prices go up. And prices have gone up, haven’t they?

There were some questions sent to me asking about how such assistance programs drive up the prices of things and as you can see, not only do social programs drive up the price of things you buy, they use your money to do it. That’s what the socialists and communists in the government don’t want you to know.

Well, what’s in it for the socialists and communists in the government, you ask? A job, a job helping you screw yourself it appears, and judging from the size and scope of social programs in the US in comparison to the 1950’s, apparently they take great pleasure in seeing to it. Maybe Senator McCarthy from Wisconsin was right. Yes, I suppose he was.

Shhh! I shouldn’t be telling you all of this, any of it.

We have been hearing about rampant abuse of SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, aka food stamps) a lot lately.

I don’t begrudge the growl of a hungry stomach, but the thing about putting so many people in the population on food stamps is that doing so adds a tremendous amount of money to the market. When money is scarce, prices go down. When money is available, prices go up. It’s just basic economic theory.

When you add so much money, $74 Billion dollars, $1617 on average per person using food stamps, when you add that kind of money to the market as in the case of the massive distribution of funds through SNAP, you create an unnatural market force driving up the price of food so that those who don’t use food stamps are suddenly paying more for their food but not receiving a corresponding increase in pay to do so.

In other words, food stamps make food more expensive for those not receiving food stamps! Food stamps weaken everyone’s dollar dramatically. What article of food was once a dollar is now two dollars, showing 100 percent inflation. Price controlled items such as milk and eggs do not see such dramatic inflationary increases but other items double and triple in price. What? Are we supposed to eat milk and eggs all the time? When we once could afford fresh meats, now we must choose processed meat and meat substitutes.

Just Wait. Some economist will conclude that in the future there will be a corresponding increase in heart disease and cancer as the population is driven to eating food substitutes resulting from the dramatically increased prices of groceries caused by SNAP. SNAP, the economist will conclude, is making the population unhealthy, that portion of the population that actually is taxed to pay for SNAP in the first place and can’t afford real food anymore because they have been priced out of the “real food” market due to SNAP! I’m sure the socialists will be able to spin that to the contrary. But many of them don’t do anything else, anyway. Some do, but that’s a subject for another day.

And not only are SNAP and other such programs driving up the costs for those not using the social programs, those not using SNAP are taxed to pay for SNAP. In other words, not only is the program driving up the prices for those not using SNAP, SNAP is also taxing you to pay to drive up the prices for you in the first place?

What? What are you saying, Bill? That’s pretty complicated. Not really. It’s like this. You are paying to make things that you need even more expensive. In an economic sense, you are using your own money against yourself! In essence, you are paying for something twice, perhaps three times when in reality you should only have to pay for things once. This is a prime example of what “real conservatives” refer to as the fallacy of government intervention.

As I said, I don’t begrudge someone who is hungry from using food stamps. But if the government is going to spend so much of the public’s money on food stamps and unnaturally drive up the cost of food for everyone who is not using food stamps, the government at least owes it to the public who is paying out-of-pocket to survive and also paying for the food stamps in the first place, the government owes it to them to police the SNAP program and other related programs with some fortitude and make sure that people are not using their SNAP benefits to pay for housing or to trade their benefits for cash and to then use that cash to purchase drugs and alcohol.

It’s only fair. Otherwise, maybe it’s time to cut the SNAP program back. There may in fact be no other way.

An article appearing today on FoxNews.com indicates that massive fraud and abuse of the food stamp program SNAP, or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, has been discovered and there may be a need for more oversight.

The article mentions that $76 billion dollars was paid out to 47 million recipients during the reporting period used. Doing the math on those numbers is frightening and should raise sudden and urgent alarms about SNAP. If you divide 76 billion, or the dollars paid out, by 47 million, or the number of recipients, which should give you the amount per recipient (the money is not distributed equally by the way as some receive more than others), you receive an average amount of $1,617 and change per recipient. Obviously some are probably receiving much more, some less.

You should know that SNAP is not the only such support program and sometimes recipients are receiving funds from several such programs at once to include other benefits such as rent assistance and many other government programs. Food assistance is apparently one of the easiest programs to abuse and sell the benefits to obtain alcohol, cigarettes, and in this report from FoxNews.com, recipients are using the SNAP benefits to pay for housing, art, and cash.
