Poll: If They win, Will Dems Do What is Right?
IF THE DEMOCRATS EXPAND THEIR MAJORITY If one believes the pundits, the Democrats will win the presidency and at least five-7 seats in the Senate and a good deal more in the House. Using a conservative measurement, they may well have enough of a majority to create and pass sweeping legislation. Let us review a few possibilities, which would transform America back to what it was and should be. Oil prices (not costs) have skyrocketed. What used to cost a friend of mine who works every day at a real job, his driving costs have gone from $20.00 per barrel, in 2000, to $140.00 per barrel in 2008. Meanwhile the cost of oil production, including shipping, has dropped to between $00.89-$1.49 a barrel. Thus, the gross profit margin has gone from between 13 times to 21 times cost, to between 94 times cost to 157 times cost. At $140.00 per barrel, the profit on a barrel of oil is between $139.12 a barrel to $138.51 a barrel. The attempt to corner the oil market was tried often in the past, but the last time in Jimmy Carter’s administration the last attempt to drive the middle and upper middle class into poverty and thus cheap labor was headed off by Carter’s cap on the barrel price at $8.00-$10.00 a barrel and the thieving oil companies were nailed with a Windfall Profits tax that negated much of their attempted coupe. This time ’round what has been missing from the mix is testosterone and pure ethics on the part of congress. The oil “shortage” and “Rarity” is a BS Myth told so well now 30 years later, that it fell on a dumbed down work force, a dumbed-down student body and a sense that Gekko was right, “Greed IS Good” by weakling congress and citizens with not even an ounce of self restraint. Many feel that GW Bush and Dick Cheney, at the very least should be impeached and prosecuted for a variety of crimes including war crimes. Do you? In Illinois the price of a Residential lot in the western and far western communities has gone since the year 2000 from an average retail price of about $45,000 to $60,000 to between $150,000-$250,000. Coincidence? NO, part of a fleecing plan, emphasized by the moronic repetition of stupid uninformed buyers, who now, and probably justifiably, are going bankrupt at a record pace, that “They ain’t making any more land…” I heard this moronic comment from unrestrained buyers (a form of Avarice) any number of times and the ones I know personally are wallowing in foreclosure. The reality is, to those with the IQ above that of an avocado, and the simple self-restraint of an average saint, they are very much “still making land” and plenty of it. Making land, selling it and meaning developing it. Right now in the USA there is there is over 2 Billion, acres of vacant land available (2, 263,960,960 acres of land in the US not counting water (2 billion, 263 million, 960 thousand, 960 acres) of land in the USA. And it costs no more to develop it than it did in 2000, in fact with the increased use of scab labor up from Mexico, it is even cheaper. Right now, a less greedy landowner and a less greedy developer and builder could build a 2500 square foot home on an acre of land for $287,500. Now when I say this I include R-30 insulation in the walls and R-50 in the ceilings, not the current R-13-R-17 walls to R-25 ceilings, Geothermal Heat pump HVAC, screwing the oil companies, brick, and steel construction with hardwood floors throughout, wood or aluminum casement windows and storms and plywood (not oatmeal mush board-OSB or particle board crap). On such a home once oil prices have been attacked and sent packing, would be about $25,000-$40,000 or more, which is well above the profit margins of 25 years ago Builders and developers, however, have been screwing uninformed buyers, most of which are either now in foreclosure or bankruptcy, with profits on a 2500 square foot house which should cost, with all the advantages and more which I mention above at $287,500, instead for between $390,000-$565,000 on less than ¼ acre of land, making $147,000-$303,000 per piece of crap house on far less land. So, instead of the ethical and traditional 10%-14% profit a (about $25,000-$40,000 per unit) they are making 51%-129% profit, or $147,000-$303,000 per house. Fun Huh? During their years of cowardice and even since taking control the Democ-Rats have rolled over helping to pass The Patriot Act and the FISA bills, unnecessary in WW II and certainly unnecessary today, but totally decimating our Constitution, the Military Commission’s Act of 2006, destroying for the first time in our history, 90% of the Bill of Rights. I predicted this would happen back in 1994, prompted by a dumbed down faculty at my college throwing away out of fear all the rights gained in the last 150 years of college teaching by more able professors. The newer faculty were hired strictly based on their pliability and lack of, hmm, how to put this delicately, ah-balls, and an overabundance of, again, diplomatically, again how can I put this diplomatically, ah yes-stupidity! A few years ago congress passed a new Bankruptcy Act. Moses initiated the original Bankruptcy idea. Moses knew that a strong and healthy labor force was needed, as well as a strong a healthy people in case of war. He granted his idea of Social Security by granting every citizen several acres of land on which to grow his or her own food. He initiated the debt erasure act which allowed those in debt seven years to either pay back or become debt free, and each 7 time 7 years, The Jubilee Year, or in Jesus’ words, The Year of The Lord, wherein all lands confiscated or sold for taxes or debt. Must be returned to the family from which they were confiscated in the 50th year. This, not religious beliefs was the true reason Jesus was murdered, he had uncovered the plot, the conspiracy, to rob the people at great profit to the Chief Herodian Priests and conspiring lower level Roman officials, by owning and profiting from their ownership of land-a thing forbidden to Priests at the time by Moses. Had Jesus spoken of it again in the presence of Pontius Pilate or the Zealots, the priests and the petty Roman officials, if not assassinated by the Zealots, would have been boiled in oil, skinned alive, drawn and quartered, burnt at the stake, or fed to the lions by the Roman Hierarchy. The passage of the new bill make sit next to impossible for the vast majority of people to find relief in bankruptcy, but has not effect on the bankruptcy proceedings of Corporations. The result is people not being able to recoup and become productive citizens again, thus being hounded for life and losing their homes and properties. In its wake, I predicted that we would see an increase in suicides, murders, bank robberies and other crimes, including minor acts of terrorism. Those predictions have come to pass as more than 2.2 million homes have gone into foreclosure, 63,000 this month alone on California. Good and kind people have questioned the continued existence of Mercenary companies like Blackwater, which have allegedly committed many atrocities. The outcry against their existence and the existence of Private or publically treaded companies which build, service and run prisons, is legion. Many people believe, and with allegedly some justification, as many articles here by me and others have pointed out, that such firms have successfully lobbied for prison sentences for minor crimes, and longer ones at that making America, once the Home of The Brave and the Land of the FREE, now, the Land of the hunted and the home of the imprisoned. America, now, not Russia or China, ahs the highest percentage of its own citizens in prison, many of them for crimes they did not commit, most of them with sentences in which the penalty far outweighs the crime. Barack Obama says he will employ Blackwater. A dumbed down public, seeking vengeance, and urged on by those profiting, again has urged most of these penalties. Again and again I see stupid people trying to influence the courts, howling vengeful things and seeking the sympathy of the public, wanting say in sentences and playing into the hands of the Satanic dressed in Prison managers garb, many calling themselves “Christians.” Well, vengeance seeking “Christians,” you have had quite a hand in framing a good many people for a variety of crimes both minor and major, I hope as you are afire in Hell, you will note my words here. A number of No-Bid Contracts have been let. FDR recovered even profits he thought were excessive on fully competitive legitimately bid contracts. Wil cobress do the same? These are but a few of the problems facing Americans right now and I’d like to know if the Democrats win the presidency and if they do gain complete control of congress, will they make things right? How many of the below will they act upon. Please check the ones you believe they will act upon. 1)-Will Bush/Cheney be prosecuting for their Crimes? 2)-Will Oil companies be sanctioned with fixed prices per barrel at $20.00 or less and windfall profits taxes be installed retroactively? 3)-Will laws stopping inflationary prices rein Builders, developers and landowners in? 4)-Will a home quality building act be passed to cover correct R-Factors and other qualities needed to conserve energy? 5)-Will The Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act of 2006 and FISA Be rescinded? 6)Will the Bankruptcy Act be rescinded? 7)-Will Mercenaries be brought to Justice? 8)-Will Mercenary Companies be made illegal? 9)-Will corporate Prison management companies be run out of business by the government? 10)-Will the Democrats rescind all contracts and recover profits on No-Bid contracts?
