Corporate Patriotism???

The day I heard Jack Lew use the phrase “Economic Patriotism” to describe the obligation American Corporations have to submit to excessive taxation was the day I realized how  deeply Socialism is entrenched in the current Washington administration.  Barak Obama called it “Corporate Patriotism.”

Here’s what it means.  An American corporation that is economically patriotic will, in its budgetary process, allocate a high percent of its profits to be paid directly to Washington.  This check would be above and beyond the 35 percent or so already required by law.  Although not specifically defined by either Obama or Lew, it is easy to calculate, based on their beliefs that corporations are greedy monsters which rob the populace, that as much as 80% of remaining profits should be given to the government.

Lew and Obama have redefined stupidity.  To hand a larger helping of America’s wealth over to the hyper-dysfunctional Washington administration is to take our national treasure and dump it down a rat hole.  I shake when I think of such a stupidly inane idea.

Want to know the REAL definition of Corporate patriotism?

1.  A corporation that successfully grows then invests its profits back into research and development and the local community.

2.  A corporation that creates jobs and incentivizes employee advancement through education, monetary rewards and recognition.

3.  A corporation that builds loyalty through profit sharing,

I am a simple minded person who struggles to understand why liberal idealogy cannot grasp the concept that a rising sea lifts all ships.  Government never has been, is not now, nor will it ever be capable of doing for the American citizenry what corporate American can.

 

The Destructive Power of Idealogy

Idealog:  “One given to fanciful ideas or theories; One who is guided more by the image of perfection than by the real world.” Synonyms:  Crusader, Fanatic.

Idealogues who have power, as does the current administration in Washington, offer up a Clear and Present Danger to the very existence of the greatest government in the history of mankind – American democracy and the capitalist system.  Actions of the Obama administration continue to demonstrate its inability to balance reality with fantasy while setting America on the path to becoming a second rate country.  Not a country where everyone has to opportunity for self determination, but a country where the poorer become poorer and the freedom of opportunity comes in the form of a handout from the government.  Points.

1.  This Presidency has bent over backwards to pacify an idealogy that has vowed to destroy the American way of life.  His exchange of five high level world terrorists for an American whose allegiance itself is questionable while he did nothing to save the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens and those brave men who died with him is not only appalling but gives a new meaning to the word hypocrisy. Was not Chris Stevens serving this great nation just as are the members of our military and did he not deserve the same level of protection?  With thousands of years of history to reference why do we not realize it is a fantasy to believe that the Taliban and fanatic Muslims are open to any form of compromise.  When is this administration going to learn?

2.  The Idealogue continues to strangle the American economy by promoting climate change as a force attributable only to the existence on humans on the planet.  Given, we should take individual responsibility to establish and maintain a clean environment and I have seen the air in Los Angeles change from choking to breathable in the seventies.  However, in reality, The world has, and continues to, go through cycles during which the climate changes.  Pollutants spewed into the atmosphere daily by worldwide volcanic eruptions and forest fires make the carbon footprint left by mankind puny in comparison.  No question we need to be vigilant but we also must be rational.  Idealogues are rarely rational and also consistently twist or hide the truth to achieve their ends.
