Are You Ready for the Depression?

Kevin Felts blogger and political commentator

The depression is just around the corner, are you and your family ready? The news reporters are trying not to use the word “depression”, probably out of fear of the panic that will follow.

IMF predicts a global recession

The banking system, along with the US State and Federal governments have been the number one cause of this problem.

The banks started writing flexible mortgage rate loans – knowing that people would not be able to pay the notes. But for some reason the people just played along with the scams. Untold millions of families have lost their homes and driven into bankruptcy because of the greed of bankers. The blame can not be placed solely on the bankers – the people HAVE to take part of the blame.

The State and Federal government have allowed millions of US jobs to be shipped over seas. This is only at the benefit of the companies that are using cheap labor. Since millions of people are out of work, less money is spent, in turn less tax dollars are brought in.

There is nothing “free” about “free trade” – someone pays the price.

The State and Federal government has also continued to take care of millions of illegal immigrants. Untold millions of dollars are spent on the health and welfare of trespassers, when we can not even take care of our own.

A few weeks ago news was coming out of California that the sate was going to be hit with a money shortage. The first thing that came to mind was – “how much money could be saved by taking the illegals off the social services programs?” An illegal immigrant has no right to anything, expect to be arrested and sent back home.

Every 3 months Exxon reports record profits, and then the people wonder why gas and food is so expensive.

Human stupidity and greed have prevailed, and as a result, the depression is right around the corner.

Its time to get the plans in order.

Valkyrie with Tom Cruise and Political Party Loyalty

Kevin Felts political commentator

This past Saturday my wife and I went to go see Valkyrie with Tom Cruise. The movie was pretty good and gets a rating B+ or A-. Not enough political movies are made of our recent human history. If people will not pay attention to their government, maybe the big screen can help put the facts in front of the people.

Saturday afternoon I was putting some thought into the movie and doing some comparisons. There is a lot of differences between the USA of today and Nazi Germany, but one thing is the same – blind loyalty. In no way is the Nazi party even close to the Republicans and Democrats. Even though the political parties may not have anything in common, the people of Nazi Germany and the people of the USA do have something in common – and that is blind loyalty to a political party.

In the movie Valkyrie it was clear that the people of Nazi Germany had a blind loyalty to the government. In today’s political system, its still the same. There are people that will only vote democratic or republican – no matter what happens. No matter what their elected official does, those people are still loyal to that party.

Youtube Censorship of Hunting Videos

Since when is hunting considered animal cruelty? Well, it seems that the management of youtube thinks that hunting is just that, animal cruelty. Or, is youtube bowing to political pressure? Over the past few months youtube has started removing hunting videos. The reason – hunting videos depict animal cruelty.

One of my videos that showed how to skin a squirrel was removed from youtube. The squirrel was legally taken according to the laws of the State of Texas (where I live) and was taken in a humane manner. The video was removed on December 20th. On that same day I sent an email back to the people at youtube asking if I could get a reason “why” the video was removed. Four days later and I still do not have an answer.

While doing a few google searches to try and find out why the video was removed, I found a fishing website where a guy posted that youtube had removed one of his hunting videos. According to him, the management of youtube considers hunting animal cruelty. I also found several “animal rights” websites where the members make it a habit of trolling youtube with the sole purpose of reporting hunting videos. On one of these animal rights sites, several people said they report every hunting video they see.

The Winner of the 2008 Presidential Election Is

I would like to be the first to announce the winner of 2008 presidential election, and its Twiddle Dumb. Lets all give him a warm welcome as our new Supreme Leader.

Under his reign you can expect 4 more years of:
Higher taxes
The continued bail out of the banking system
The continued bail out of wall street
Oil companies reporting record profits – while consumers pay record prices
More unemployment – which is caused by
More free trade
No national health insurance
No caps on medical expenses
Protection for companies against law suits

Regardless of whether you voted for mccain or obama, you are going to get 4 more years of the same ole stuff.

The Libertarian Party, Our Only Real Answer

Kevin Felts political commentator

How many times do people have to vote for the two major parties before they realize there is no difference?

It took both parties to pass the North American Free Trade Agreement – NAFTA

It took both parties to pass the banking bailout scam.

It took both parties to pass the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade – GATT.

It is taking both parties to continue this war in Iraq.

It took both parties to establish the income tax.

It took both parties to send millions of our jobs to China, Taiwan and India.

It has taken both parties to increase our taxes to where they are today.

Do you realize that the average American spends about 1/2 of their income on taxes?
1. Social Security
2. Medicare / Mediciad
3. Income Tax – both at the state and federal levels
4. Property Tax
5. Sales Tax
6. Fuel Tax on Gasoline
7. FCC charges on your cable TV bill
8. FCC charges on your phone bill

And this is only part of the list.
