What did Hitler promise the Germans


Hitler's promises People supported Hitler because he promised them what they wanted and needed to hear.

The Weimar Republic appeared to have no idea how to solve the problems of the Depression. The Nazis on the other hand promised to solve the problems. Hitler promised most groups in Germany what they wanted. Hitler used the Jews and other sections of society as scapegoats, blaming all the problems on them. To Germans at the time Hitler made sense, he united everyone by providing explanations for Germany's problems.
People in Germany were tired of their poor quality of life. Hitler promised to make Germany proud again - it was exactly what people wanted to hear. Hitler pledged something for every part of Germany society:

Group Promise Farmers Higher prices for their produce - making up for all their losses during the Depression. Unemployed workers Jobs building public works such as roads and stadiums. Middle Class To restore the profits of small business and the value of savings. To end the Communist threat.

To all Germans he promised to restore German honor by tearing up the hated Treaty of Versailles and by making Germany great again.

KUHNER: Obama's socialist designs - Washington Times: President Obama is gradually transforming America into a socialist authoritarian state. This is the real meaning of his recent decision to grant backdoor amnesty to young illegal immigrants. Mr. Obama is behaving like a Latin American strongman, who asserts arbitrary power and ignores the rule of law. He is assaulting the very pillars of our constitutional republic.

The Man in the High Castle

The Man in the High Castle: Fans of Jung will recognize the notion that the National Socialist movement was in some ways an instance of mass possession by an archetype. These lines also allude to Heidegger's idea that the Nazi phenomenon was an opportunity to return to authentic Being. Even the anti-individualism smacks of Rosenberg's preoccupation with the folk soul. Considered literally, all these ideas should be taken with a grain of salt. Taken all together, though, they are a prose poem of dark metaphysics.

Obama…Wherefore Art Thou thy Jobs?

Obama…Wherefore Art Thou thy Jobs?: The tax code is fine. It’s the Whitehouse and the politicians that offer special concessions and waivers to their friends. The only way to gain an advantage for companies to create jobs in America is cut taxes, regulations and creates an environment that will allow Americans to compete for the jobs that were stolen by politicians, China and Mexico. Also get rid of presidential advisors like GE’s Immelt who keeps making billions while he ships American Jobs to China.

Obama Punishes Legal Immigrants

Obama Punishes Legal Immigrants: President Barack Obama's decision this week to suspend deportations of certain young illegal immigrants is as empty, and as cynical, as his support for gay marriage this past spring. On a policy level, it means nothing: the suspension only lasts for two years and requires illegal immigrants to report themselves to a government agency. It is plain politics--and worse, since by Obama's own admission his decision violates the Constitution. The real victims are millions of legal immigrants who did things right--or are still waiting, patiently, for visas.

STATESMAN OR POLITICIAN?

STATESMAN OR POLITICIAN?: “I want to be a politician when I grow up!” This is not a common phrase uttered by children, and for good reason. The term “politician” is in effect a dirty word and often compared with prostitutes, pimps, and injury lawyers due to the easily identifiable pattern of politicians using positions of power in the pursuit of comfort, wealth, and an expansion of their power. This has been historically true to one degree or another since the concept of a democratically elected representatives has existed in the minds of humanity.

Wall Photos

Wall Photos: The macroeconomic version of the quantity theory distracts from the need to analyze the transmission mechanism through which an increase in the quantity of money influences the relative demand for different goods and services, and hence the set of relative prices as well as the aggregate price level. By considering only the effects of changes in the quantity of money on the aggregate price level, attention is diverted from the misdirection of resources caused by inflation.

"The smart pavement integrates Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless technology into a piece of calcic carbonate (a marble found throughout Spain) that allows radio frequencies to pass through. Costs are kept lower by interspersing the intelligent pavement with regular marble (same look and feel)." The improved networks will allow individuals freer access the Web and offer tourists important information about attractions and local cultural events.

Jobless Claims Rise Above Expectations

Jobless Claims Rise Above Expectations: Initial jobless claims were just reported. After last week's jump in claims, economists had expected 383k to file first-time claims for unemployment benefits. The actual number was slightly higher; 387k filed claims. Last weeks report of 386K filing claims (which was also higher than expected) was revised higher, to 389k claims. It is very likely that this weeks number will be revised higher next week. This is not a good trend.

Say No To Socialism » Ion Mihai Pacepa

Say No To Socialism » Ion Mihai Pacepa: In my former life, I walked in all kinds of Marxist moccasins over many miles and for many years, and I know for a fact that Marxism, no matter how disguised, always begins its way to power by preaching the need to change — a society, a country, a group of countries, the whole world. Of course, people everywhere want their leaders to do a better job than their predecessors did. But “change” is also the very quintessence of Marxism, which is built upon the dialectical materialist tenet that “quantitative changes generate qualitative transformations.” (Translation for the media savvy: If you say it often enough, it becomes the truth.)

Blue Dogs Endorse No Budget, No Pay Act | Blue Dog Coalition

Blue Dogs Endorse No Budget, No Pay Act | Blue Dog Coalition

Washington - The fiscally conservative Democratic Blue Dog Coalition in the U.S. House of Representatives has endorsed a bill by Blue Dog Rep. Jim Cooper, D- Tenn., that would require Congress to pass a budget before Members of Congress could get paid.  The No Budget, No Pay Act, H.R. 3643, would require Congress to pass its budget and all appropriations bills by October 1st of every year, the start of the nation’s fiscal year.  If Congress fails to pass both a budget and all of its appropriations bills on time, then Members of Congress will not get paid until they do so.  The law would also prohibit retroactive pay for missed paychecks.

The No Budget, No Pay Act would take effect February 1, 2013, thereby only applying to future Congresses and not violating the 27th Amendment.  The bill currently has 30 cosponsors split almost evenly between Democrats and Republicans.  Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., has introduced similar legislation in the Senate, and the Senate Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committee has scheduled a hearing on the bill on March 14.

Congress has not adopted a budget for more than 1,000 days.  Over the past 36 years, Congress has passed its appropriations bills on time only four times, and it has failed to pass its appropriations bills on time for the 15th straight year.

“Americans don’t get paid if they don’t do their jobs, so why should Congress? The Blue Dogs have endorsed my bipartisan bill because it’s a step toward restoring Americans’ faith in our government,” said Cooper, who also serves as Vice Chair of the Blue Dog Task Force on Fiscal Responsibility.

“In the last six decades Congress has passed a budget a mere four times," said Rep. Kurt Schrader, D-Ore., Chair of the Blue Dog Task Force on Fiscal Responsibility. “If this body can't find a way to do what we have been sent here to do by the American people, which is to cut spending and reduce our nation's outrageous $15 trillion deficit, then we don't deserve to get paid.”

“This bill is about accountability, fiscal responsibility and commonsense.  If Congress can’t work together and do its job, then it shouldn’t get paid,” said Rep. Mike Ross, D-Ark., Blue Dog Co-Chair for Communications. “We can’t keep operating on continuing resolutions and short-term fixes and we can’t keep pointing fingers at the other side.  The Blue Dogs stand ready and willing to work with both parties to get the job done in a fiscally responsible way and to hold Members of Congress accountable to their actions.” 

“Developing a budget that can pass the House, Senate, and be signed into law by the President is the most basic part of our job in Congress, and we shouldn’t get paid if we don’t do our job,” said Rep. John Barrow, D-Ga., Blue Dog Co-Chair for Policy.  “The No Budget, No Pay Act will force Congress to make the tough choices necessary to build a bipartisan budget – rather than revert to the blind partisanship that’s failed to produce a budget for the American people year after year.”

“Families and small businesses across the country operate on a budget, and it is time for Congress to start doing the same thing if we are serious about getting our fiscal house in order,” said Rep. Heath Shuler, D-N.C., Blue Dog Co-Chair for Administration.  “The American people have elected us to do the job of governing this country, and that includes passing a full budget and appropriations bills on time. If we are not doing our jobs, we should not be rewarded with a paycheck. It’s that simple.”

“The Congress has failed its obligation to the American people by not passing a budget,” said Rep. Dan Boren, D-Okla., Blue Dog Whip.  “We need to follow the example of families across the nation who have to balance their checkbooks and pay their bills on time. To get on this path of fiscal responsibility, we must have a framework. This legislation will force members of Congress to do the right thing and pass the budget.”

According to a new research paper out of Boston College, 3.4 percent of America’s dads take care of their children from home to serve in a role once almost exclusively reserved for mothers. In 2011, the United States had around 176,000 stay-at-home dads, the study suggests; in 2001, the statistic was only around 81,000, or around 1.6 percent.

Is This How We Run a Country? | cosmoscon

Is This How We Run a Country? | cosmoscon

If you were to start a new country, one of the things you will have to consider is how the incoming tax dollars will be spent.  A government should look at its Constitution and determine the areas that are clearly reserved for the Federal Government and then the leaders should determine what percentage of tax revenues should be allocated to each area.
Let’s assume that this country is like the United States and has a Constitution like the good ole USA.  The Preamble to the US Constitution would be our general guide as to what the government should provide and it is quoted below:
We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. 
That is pretty general but when we look at the current spending of the US government we have 9 major categories that cover the mandate of our Constitution and its subsequent amendments and Congressional Acts:
  1.        Pensions – This is Social Security and is provided to our elderly to help them in their retirement.
  2.        Health Care – This is comprised mainly of Medicare and Medicaid which helps those who are over the age of 65 or in lower income groups.
  3.        Education – This provides student loans and helps with local education but the bulk of educational spending comes from State and Local governments.
  4.        Defense – This provides for the “common defense” and represents our Military.
  5.        Welfare – This includes aid to families who are in lower income groups as well as Unemployment Insurance for those out of work.
  6.        Protection – This is comprised of Courts, Prisons and Federal Police.
  7.        Transportation – This provides for infrastructure projects to provide for its citizens while they travel on ground, air and over water.
  8.        General Government – This provides for the salaries of our government employees, lawmakers, etc.
  9.        Other Spending – This captures all the other miscellaneous expenditures – Research, Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing, Hunting, Fuel, Energy, Pollution, Housing, etc.
Because our Government has chosen to live outside of its means, there is a 10th area called Interest which represents our interest payments to other countries on debt that we have borrowed.  From the following link, we can see that in 2011 the US is predicted to take in $2.3 trillion in tax revenue and I calculated what each of the 10 areas represents of that total revenue (in 2011).  Here is how those 10 areas are currently appropriated as a percentage of Tax revenue:
 
In case you haven’t figured it out, you come to a startling revelation when you total the amounts for Pension, Health Care and Welfare – They comprise 93.7% of total Tax revenue!  Almost every dollar that the US government takes in gets transferred to people who don’t pay any Federal taxes (those receiving this aid are either poor, unemployed or retired and therefore pay no Federal Income tax).  Let that sink in for a while. Almost every dollar that the US government takes in gets transferred to people who don’t pay taxes.
From the latest IRS income tax revenue data, we can see that 51.8% of the total filers pay 98.2% of all the Federal Income Tax.  This means roughly half of Americans work to pay benefits for the other 50%.  Is that how we’d set up a country if we were to start over?
In order to live up to our Constitution and “promote the general welfare”, we must take care of those who can’t take care of themselves but are we saying that we expect half of the American population can’t take care of themselves?  Is this really how you’d set up a country if we had to do it all over again?
This is no way to run a country and is exactly why many Euro-Socialist countries are failing and in some respects this is why the Roman Empire Fell.
