Illegal Obama; Zero-Sum Left-Wing Economics

Why do progressives think like they do when it comes to economics, finance and business?


When they talk about sharing the 'pie' they assume the pie is fixed. Once cut, that's it. Everyone gets their cut and nothing else happens. It's zero-sum where one party gains an advantage at the expense of another. It's the basis of left-wing economic thoughts and it's all bull shit.

They don't understand that wealth is not a pie. It keeps expanding through innovation, free enterprise and sheer determination. They also don't grasp that anyone can get a piece of the action. There's plenty of flavors of pie to go around in a free economy.


Speaking of collectivism and the herd mentality, the whole issue of 'infrastructure' to help spur the economy is fine and all that but there's a troubling under lying fact about relying on the government to fix our roads and bridges.

We don't own the roads even though they say it belongs to us. It's not ours because no one has a direct interest or incentive to improve the standards and conditions. And even if some enterprising people would, the government would stop and possibly fine them. It's happened where citizens take to the streets to fix cracks and pot holes only to be stopped by the bureaucracy.

So down comes the shovels and up go the erosion of our infrastructure.

It zaps us of our enterprising energy, huh?


Hundreds of rules passed by Obama illegal.

Don't tell his fans. They'll just scoff and role their eyes.

For the rest of us, it's pretty obvious Obama is not all that into following the law.

As for the WaPo using the term 'technically illegal' well, let's just say it's silly because technically water is wet.

"Over the past 21 / 2 years, the Obama administration has published hundreds of rules — on how wheelchairs should be stowed aboard U.S. aircraft, how foreign trade zones should be regulated, how voting assistance should be provided for U.S. citizens overseas and so on.
There’s a problem, however: Technically speaking, these and about 1,800 other regulations shouldn’t be in effect, because they weren’t reported to Congress as required. Yet there is little that lawmakers or the courts can do about it.

The situation illustrates the obscure, byzantine process used to create federal regulations — and how easily it can go awry.

“It’s pretty apparent that the system is broken,” said Curtis Copeland, a retired Congressional Research Service staffer who discovered the issue. “It would seem this is one area where congressional Republicans and Democrats could get together and say: ‘This is crazy. We can fix this.’ ”

Obama is unhinged.
