Any of various theories or systems of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy.


The political and economic philosophy of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in which the concept of class struggle plays a central role in understanding society's allegedly inevitable development from bourgeois oppression under capitalism to a socialist and ultimately classless society.

1.The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
2.Discrimination or prejudice based on race.

Now, do I believe that Barack Obama is a socialist? I don't know him so all I have to go on is the people who he associates himself with, the people who support him, and the people who back him. In some cases I have his own words that people say "Oh, He didn't mean it that way!" I'm thinkin' if you don't want it taken "that way", you had better not say it. When Obama says "Share the wealth" that, to me is democrat code talk for "share your Income". Unwelcome "sharing of MY income, read theft, taxation without representation, any other reason they give for relieving me of my hard earned salary is without a doubt another step toward socialism.

Is Obama a Marxist? Again I have only his actions, his associations, and his backers to give me insight into his past and into our future should he be elected. We know he is without a doubt the biggest liberal in DC. He has longtime associates that are Marxist and hate the Capitalist society that made America a great nation. Wm Ayers, Geo Soros, even his wife Michele Obama has stated her disdain for the country that gave her such an opportunity. Will that transfer over to the point of Marxism? It may. He is already sowing the seeds of class envy and hatred. The democrat party has already shown signs of becoming the new bourgeois class. Nancy Pelosi of Soviet California has pretty much said of the Republican party "Let them eat cake". Not a direct quote but, close enough.

Is Obama a Racist? Once more I have only his words, actions, and who he hangs with. The Nation of Islam with the racist Farrakan, the Black Panthers, a former terrorist organisation, and Hezbollah have all endorsed him. He has attended a church that preaches racial hatred almost on a daily basis for twenty years and has He not begun to see it their way?

I said long ago that I believed that the next president would be the one who promised to give away the most. It's lookin' like I was right.

Keep your powder dry.

I guess what I'm most curious about is how The Obama is going to get his "lower taxes plan" implemented if we were unlucky enough to get him as POTUS. Stop and think about it for just a minute. He will have a Dem House and a Dem Senate, I don't know about you but I have never seen a democrat lower taxes. In fact I'm thinkin' they would rather go through a root canal procedure than even talk about it.

This being election time though they know they have to throw the uneducated a bone. Promise them a tax cut until they win then laugh in their faces. "Oh no, (you stupid little man) that is not what I meant. Promise to give them stuff and when it comes time to pay just say "the man before me left such a mess I can't do it".

Does anybody actually believe a Democrat Congress will actually give him permission to cut taxes? We have to remember that when elected to the Senate he was elected on a promise of lower taxes. He lied then. He hasn't even tried to get such a bill introduced. He has railed against any and all tax cuts that have been presented in the very short time he has been in the Senate. Why should we believe that he is not lying now?

I don't.

Another thing I would be curious about would be. Do you think that an Obama presidency would actually pursue the criminals in congress and in the financial centers that have caused the great upheaval of 2008? I hardly think so. Soros would slap him down so fast his head wouldn't stop turning for three days. He'd look like Linda Blair in The Exorcist. Oh yeah, he is deeply involved so that is a gaurantee he would do nothing. Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Byron Dorgan and Himself to name a few would get a pass.

The Messiah's message is kind of messy but the great unwashed is falling for it, hook, line and we're sunk.

Waste Hauling

A repost from my homepage

I have mentioned that I am in the Waste hauling and disposal business. Kind of a smelly, dirty, infectious type of business. I have decided that the reason they have available such good insurance is the nature of our work. Not really the reason for this particular rant.

I read an article a few days ago by Patricia Anne Tom, one of my favorite editors in “the business”. It was, in a way disturbing, but we should have seen it coming. She told of the new role that the rail services are going to play in the future transport of waste to landfill. Now I’m thinkin’ that this is a great move for many in the industry on the face of it. The tonnage that is now hauled on the highways is enormous.

There are too many roadblocks to opening a new landfill in today’s world. It takes years to get the permits and the environmental regulations are monumental. Besides the fact that everybody is saying “not in my backyard”, while they generate these same mounds of trash.

When we look at the pros, it looks fantastic. We get hundreds of trucks off of today’s aging interstate system and highways, we have a central location to sort and recycle, and we are able to move mounds of trash away from highly congested metro areas easily.

The cons are substantial as well. First you have a huge start up cost. Then you have the same problems of getting permits and enviro concerns. Then you still have the same guy saying “not in my backyard”!

My biggest concern though is the loss of hundreds, if not thousands, of jobs. It’s almost the same as sending our jobs overseas. As a former truckdriver I know how lucrative and attractive a short haul job can be. Not only getting a good to great wage, but being home every night is priceless. I said the same thing when Detroit automated, they dumped thousands of employees, the quality went to hell, and their product went up thousands of dollars.

The bleeding has to stop somewhere. We are beginning to create our own “nanny state”. If we don’t stop eliminating jobs (for whatever reason) we will have more and more people on welfare.

First Post

This will be my first post, I hope of many. I hope those who read this will excuse any spelling, punctuation errors and formation errors. The reason I named my blog as I did is, well I am in the trash business but I will not limit myself to waste or anything else. It has nothing to do with the Hollywood people who are really idiots that cannot speak without a script and have no original thoughts. I have nothing but admiration for the good and talented people of "the business", the others I do and will consider trash. I do hope to make this interesting as well as informative. I will do my best to never repost without giving credit.
