  1. “Socialism is like a drug and feels great at first.”

    As a recovering alcoholic drug addict, I emphatically endorse that statement. And let me tell you something: withdrawals from the government treasury are going to be an order of magnitude or more worse than withdrawals from heroin and cocaine.

    Military expenditures averaged 1/3 of gdp during the period running from 1940 to 1946 and 6.5% from 1946 to 1950. We had a disagreeable 18 months recession from late 1945 to mid 1947, but no disaster. The Congress and the Administration turned in balanced budgets during the FYs concluding in 1947, 1948, 1950, and 1951, after 5 years of gargantuan borrowing. It can be done. Congress just.does.not.feel.like.it.

  3. I wonder why large corporations tend to support Liberal causes. One guess is that socialism helps to suppress competition as corporations give money to candidates who support laws favorable to their business. Another is that large corporations tend go along with government programs, e.g., Obama care saved them millions. My life long experience in the American auto industry helped provide this opinion. Ford Motor Co. in the 1950’s was quite totalitarian for example complete with corporate “gum shoes” to watch people. There was a constant atmosphere of fear, intentionally generated.

  4. There has been a persistent myth that Big Business is conservative. My employer’s management is certainly not conservative.

    I suspect it is mostly because corporate management tend to have a great deal of schooling, and certain attitudes have now worked their way into the self-concept of educated people, delineating in-groups and out groups. Another is prophylactic, Certain poses keep crooked lawfare artists off your back.

  6. The entire company for which I work is liberal progressive feminist. It put all its eggs into the Hillary basket, thinking that if she got elected, then it would get another round of DOE money. Every time corporate leadership visited the office during the election, the inevitable snarky remark about Trump would come out. Then Trump got elected. Guess what? Trump ain’t a’gonna give one red DOE cent to a company homebased in a state that overwhemingly voted for Hillary, and whose young millennial upstarts rioted, burned and looted against Trump.

    I am so disgusted. Young 20+ something people in protected minority or gender status get promoted into management positions because of their political leanings and they have not one day of experience in either naval reactors or commercial reactors. They got degrees from Academia, but they don’t know anything other than “Govt is supposed to rescue us!” Personally I would rather see the demise of nuclear energy than to see these freakazoid effeminate snowflakes with the power of the fires of creation at their disposal.

  7. Lo! The difference between Nazism and Marxist/Leninist, communist/socialism is that no one ever said that (Mac’s title for this post) about Nazism.

    Note to idiot liberals (redundant): Antifa, KKK, Nazis, and you, you useless sacs of excrement, are true enemies of liberty.
