AMERICAN CAPITALISM GONE WITH A WHIMPER

November 2, 2009

A friend of mine sent me this article from Pravda and I thought it was so good that I would pass it on.   The world isObamanation looking at us.  Some see the same storm coming to us as devoured their own economies and freedom.  I believe the world is mourning for what they see coming upon “America the Great.”  Many around the world saw the United States as the last bastion of hope for the oppressed.   This article gives us a clue as to how they see the citizens of this country.

 First, Trish’s comment:

You’ll find the link at the bottom for the page from http://www.snopes.com which states it’s true.  I find this interesting especially what is said about all the different sects of Churches.  What really causes me to shake my head, are all those who say they don’t want this, yet their material goods seem to matter more than standing and saying NO WAY.  Seems there are more who want a Marxism in the country than those who don’t.  Hopefully, those few who are speaking out in places where it can have an impact, will continue to do so, and all of us will see just what we’ve been living for so many years.  The corruption has been here a long time…and we continued to put band-aids on things hoping it would hold things together …. what, through our lifetime, not caring about future generations?  Trish

From a Russian Newspaper –

 The irony of this article appearing in the English edition of Pravda (Russian newspaper) defies description.  Why can a Russian newspaper print the following yet the American media can’t/won’t see it?

American Capitalism Gone With A Whimper

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American descent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years… The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas than the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a Burger King burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy”.  Pride blind the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power.  Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in   America  .

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama.  His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive.  His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America ‘s short history but in the world.  If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Weimar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all.  First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, losses, and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars.  These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison.  Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes.  Should we congratulate them?

These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another.  They are also usurping the rights, duties, and powers of the American congress (parliament).  Again, congress has put up little more than a whimper to their masters.

Then came Barack Obama’s command that GM’s (General Motors) president step down from leadership of his company.  That is correct, dear reader, in the land of “pure” free markets, the American president now has the power, the self-given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will.  Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.

So it should be no surprise, that the American president has followed this up with a “bold” move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies.  I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too. Prime Minister Putin, less then two months ago, warned Obama and   UK  ‘s Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster.  Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our “wise” Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.

Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper…but a “free man” whimper.

So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set “fair” maximum salaries, evaluate performance, and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses?  Senator Barney Frank, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort..  He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.

The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible.. In other words, divest while there is still value left.

The proud Americanwill go down into his slaverywithout a fight, beating his chest, and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is..  The world will only snicker.

From Snopes.com:

 The article is TRUE.

Origins:  The item referenced above is a portion of the text of a 1 April 2009 blog post (entitled “American Capitalism Gone With a Whimper”) by Stanislave Mishin which was reprinted by the Russian Pravda news site on the 27th of April, 2009.

Discriminating readers should make special note, however, that the online version of Pravda in which this editorial appeared is not the same as the newspaper which once served as the official voice of Soviet Communism.  The latter was shut down in 1991, while the former is a Russian tabloid-style news outlet established in January 1999.  While the name is the same, the two papers are different, and the one doesn’t have the pedigree or the history of the other.
