Bloviating Zeppelin: The UK "Gets It" -- Sadly, Mr Obama Does Not:

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

The UK "Gets It" -- Sadly, Mr Obama Does Not:


The United States under Mr Obama and his minions, Demorats, and various realms of Leftists absolutely insist on reliving and following the former path of Europe when, in fact, they could merely open their eyes to the trends currently seen in Europe. I, for this example, hold up the United Kingdom for examination.

Someone always thinks they can "do" Socialism "correctly." And so it is with Mr Obama. Except that, now, he finds himself torn in many different directions and, thusly, disappoints his Core Leftist Base. Please see my previous post.

And guess what? History clearly, again and again, proves: it can't be done. Socialism, complete and utter reliance on the government, cannot be done and, further, results in catastrophe and an entire re-thinking of that apparent Utopian goal -- if in fact you can even remotely classify Socialism as "Utopian." I tend to classify Socialism as more solipsistic for its instigators, who truly do not have the Utopian goal in mind. They feature their own individual and/or collective power in mind.

America and, specifically, Mr Obama possesses clear and present -- what I term -- Historical Alzheimers. That is to say, Mr Obama fails to learn from history and thinks that his iteration of Socialism is the one that will trump all others and actually work.

There is no history or evidence to support or indicate this.

Which is where the newest move by the UK comes into play. Courtesy of The Telegraph:

George Osborne has announced a surprise cut in fuel duty in a Budget statement designed to help families and deliver growth and jobs.

The Chancellor told the House of Commons that he had “put fuel into the tank of the British economy” as he announced that petrol duty would be reduced by 1p a litre from 6pm this evening.

In a move designed to help drivers suffering from record petrol prices, he cancelled a 1p rise in duty scheduled by the last Labour government for next week, and announced a "Fair Fuel Stabiliser" to keep costs down.

The move will be funded by an increased levy on oil and gas production.

In a 56 minute address, Mr Osborne also announced that corporation tax would be cut by 2 per cent, more than the 1 per cent reduction which was already scheduled, with further 1 per cent falls in coming years.

Funded by an extension of the banking levy, the tax will eventually be slashed to 23% from its current rate of 28%.

As he concluded his speech, Mr Osborne said: “We want the words ‘Made in Britain,’ ‘Created in Britain,’ Designed in Britain,’ ‘Invented in Britain’ to drive our nation forward.

“A Britain carried aloft by the march of the makers. That is how we will create jobs and support families.”

Imagine that. Someone in a government who wants to reduce taxes in order to stimulate economic growth. And who, apparently, believes in Nationalism. Sovereignty.

Reduce taxes. Reduce regulations. Remove obstacles to private property, capitalism. If anything should shrink, it should be the federal government followed by state and local governments. Let entrepreneurs make the big steps. But reward them, if successful. Reward ideas and new moves. Then step out of the way.

But, of course, Nationalism and Sovereignty, those are Bad Words. Here in America, we have been told time and again by the Obama Administration that there is no such thing as American Exceptionalism.

Keep repeating it, sir, and you will be rewarded with precisely that.

You blithering idiot.

Someone, please, insert an actual adult into American politics, will you?

P.S.
I will say this in defense of Mr Obama: at least he can keep his penis in his pants, unlike other former presidents during their terms. I suspect the bulk of you know why.

I know this:
Were I married to someone like Michelle, I'd sure be tempted by someone like Vera Baker.

Yeah, we all know why - one of two reasons. Either Michelle has threatened him with Bobbittizing, or, to quote Ann Coulter, he has "alphabetized spice racks and at least three cats, one named Blanche".

Heh.
