New Deal Eh?

So I am reading more and more than Obama and his thugs are almost done registering Mickey Mouse and intimidating plumbers who ask questions. Their work has shifted to creating a second New Deal. You remember the first right? It brought us such totally wicked awesome things like the FHA, allowing anyone with a pulse to buy a house they can't afford. It also brought us Social Security. This super duper fantastically awesome system works like this. I send the government $12,400 a year and when I'm old and gray they will send me back nothing. Thank you sir, can I have another please?

Not to be outdone during the New Deal, FDR, Socialist in Chief also made it illegal to own gold for a brief period of time in 1934. FDR's goons actually went and confiscated gold from people's bank safety deposit boxes. If you attended a publik skool run by unions, you probably never heard about that. Look it up, it's interesting reading and a nice preview of what is coming with Obama. And although he didn't succeed FDR attempted to expand the Supreme Court and pack it his his own people. Again, if you attended a union run publik skool you have no idea what I'm talking about, look it up. And of course unlike every president before him who did not run for a 3rd term, FDR said screw tradition, I'm turning king baby and ran for not just a 3rd term but a 4th. And the reason your unionized "educators" didn't teach you any of this is simple: during FDR's rein, union membership more than tripled. You don't bite the hand that feeds you right? With FDR's blessing millions of people became union members. That is they became leeches on the system that produce nothing yet consume everything. FDR also created an army of government "workers" (have you ever known an actual govt worker to does any work?). That is the true legacy of FDR. Unions, unions and government workers, who are also unionized.

And what did the New Deal actually accomplish? Not a hell of a lot. The economy in 1933 when FDR took over was no worse than in 1939 when WW2 started. The US didn't join the war until 1941 (again publik skools graduates, don't worry if you are confused, trust me on this, you probably didn't have time to learn about WW2, what with gay studies and black history year consuming most of class time). Between 1939 and 1941 the US economic situation became brighter as it was selling lots of supplies to Britain - and a little on the side to Germany too. But the point is between 1933 and 1939 all the socialist spending by FDR didn't do anything. What FDR did was take a deep recession and turn it into a deep depression. Of course he is a liberal Democrat so nobody in the media or in education dares utter anything negative about him. But if you just look at basic statistics like GDP, unemployment etc, you see that FDR didn't do a hell of a lot. Unemployment in 1933 was 24%. In 1938 it was 19%. Better, sure. An economic miracle? Not so much. In 1930, well into the recession of the time, it was 9%. Today it's 6.3%.
