Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Cain on the Housing Bubble

This says a lot:

Who's the ignorant one, Mr. Cain? It seems like he dismisses everyone that doesn't agree with him as ignorant or not knowing enough about it. Instead of listening to others, especially about the Fed, he responds with "I does not care!" Well, Mr. Cain, some of us deeply care that trillions of dollars are being loaned out to foreign countries, some of which include Muslim countries which we are also told to be very afraid of. East Asia has always been at war with Oceania.

Anyway, I would also like to point out that unlike Mr. Cain, Ron Paul has actually run a small business. At his medical practice, he had to make payroll and deal with overhead and such. Now I can hear some of you screaming that Mr. Cain was the CEO of Godfather's pizza. Mr. Cain, for pretty much of his entire adult life, was an employee of a corporation. The CEO is an employee of the shareholders. Working as an employee, especially in a large corporation is a totally different ball of wax than being a small business person.  In a large corporation, you get to focus on just one area or task and don't have to be bothered with the big picture. If your corporation is big enough, you get sweetheart tax deals that the small businessman doesn't enjoy.

So when the mother of all bubbles hit, who do you think will able to deal with it in a pro-Constitutional way? Which of the candidates is actually developing contingency plans to keep our civil liberties secure through it all?


  1. I completely agree with you, of course, but there's no way Ron Paul could correct the problem, either. No one would let him. Sigh. :-( Doomed. We are.

  2. I'm doing what I can to get the message out, rM. If we end up having to settle for Cain, we will need the most conservative House and Senate we can possibly elect. We will also want to flood the Cain campaign with our concerns about the Fed. Cain apparently said recently that he would support an audit of the Fed. It is a small step in the right direction. Meanwhile I'll keep plugging Ron Paul

  3. GAHCindy,
    I agree. Ron Paul can not correct this problem, no one can, we have hard times ahead.

    The question is; who will make it worse and who will ease the pain. Cain's past record indicates to me that he is either trying to make things worse, or he is a fool incapable of easing the pain.

  4. This problem is bigger than any one person, and Ron Paul will be the first to tell you that. He is trying hard to represent the principles that will lead us to solutions.

    I don't look for one man to be the "savior" of America, that's just idolatry. One could argue that is how a lot of the other supporters see their candidates, and that's just naive.

  5. Loaned to other countries. I'm thinking loans to other countries are like temporary taxes. Otherwise, Love the pictorial comparison. And it wasn't just Ron Paul. The fine folks at were onto this in 2005 at the latest as well.

    Well, I'm going to add you to my Great Read section momentarily. That and a buck will get you something that costs a buck. :)

  6. Don't underestimate the power of a small blog, as I started reading a teeny tiny blog when I first started reading blogs to get some real news. Lots of people look to blogs to get an opinion on a subject.
