Glenn Beck on Ron Bloom

Glenn Beck keeps harping on Ron Bloom, Obama’s Manufacturing Czar, who said that the free market system is nonsense and who agreed with Mao that political power comes from the barrel of a gun. I hate to say it, but the guy is right. His perspective is probably much different than mine, concerning the reasons why he feels it’s nonsense and what he would do to change it, but he’s right.

Socialists/Communists constantly try to get (ignorant) people to believe that what we currently have in the US is a free market or Capitalist system (See Michael Moore’s new movie for proof), but it’s not true. What we have is a socialist government (the majority of the federal budget is for social programs) and Corporatism–and Corporatism is very different from Capitalism.

Government destroyed the free market with such things as the Constitution’s Interstate Commerce Clause, business licensing, permits, fines, feees, regulations, ordinances, Affirmative Action, taxation/duties, sales restrictions, product bans, etc. There hasn’t been a “free market” in the US, for a very long time.

As for political power coming from the barrel of a gun, how else is political power (law and dictatorial Executive Orders) enFORCEd? Are fancy titles, like “Senator” or “Congressman” enough? How about their wealth? Good looks? No! The power of government is backed by guns and the people who wield them!

Do I support such power and enFORCEment? Absolutely not, but the fact remains that political power (government) is always backed by firepower.

Does that make you feel uneasy? Do something to change it!

Company Boycotts

Today, radio talk show host, Glenn Beck, reported that Sharp electronics started a “social responsibility” program, back in October 2008, to educate students in elementary schools about global warming and solar power. Apparently, the “social responsibility” part is advertising and brand identification disguised as “green” thinking.

Any company who would sell our children–and country–down the river of enviro-communism, in order to increase their bottom line, will NEVER again get my business.

In my opinion, they’re helping to indoctrinate young children (remember Lenin?) in enviro-communism, whether or not they even realize exactly what they’re doing, in order to hopefully cultivate a new generation who will be more interested in “green” technologies–such as Sharp’s solar panel products. I’m willing to bet that not one single child in any of those classrooms has enough money to buy solar panels for a house, so in my mind there is no doubt about indoctrination, for the future.

Don’t misunderstand me; there’s nothing wrong with using “green” technology. The problem comes when a generation of children–with no idea of what’s really going on–has been purposely indoctrinated with “green” ideas, because it then becomes much easier, when they are adults, for government to institute laws and ordinances that destroy private property and wealth, all in the name of the “environment.” Getting children used to being “green,” at an early age, is necessary for this type of transformation to take place in the country–and world–and it’s already happening, rapidly.

The United Nations stated, in 1976, that property should not be held as a “private resource,” and the Communist Manifesto states that government will have to get control of natural resources, remove all distinction between the town and country and redistribute people equitably across the land, so this is what you’re getting–and they will do it, in large part, by getting to your children.

So, Sharp is another company I will add to the list of businesses that I boycott (for various reasons):

Bank of America, GE (General Electric, parent company of NBC), SC Johnson (and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation), e-surance, Safe Auto insurance, Disney (parent company of ABC), Sharp.
