Is proprietary software responsible for the so-called recession?

Rather than get into politics there, decided to get into politics here.

Okay, to start with, I'm not convinced the world is actually in an economic recession. And yes, I do actually pay attention to the news. Many of the attributes of a recession are present, such as massive layoffs and massive bankruptcies.

But what would happen if these massive layoffs and bankruptcies were caused by criminal actions? It is still a recession when somebody deliberately broke laws in order to cause an economic downtown? The fact is, I believe the Liberal Democrats and many of their leaders are guilty of acts consisting of treason. A case in point would be executives of housing companies bailed out by the US Federal Government that promptly went on a multi-hundred thousand dollar retreat. People like Presidential-Elect Obama that made off with lots of money as well. Am I accusing Presidential-Elect Obama of treason against the US? Yes. Yes I am. Given his track record on foriegn visits and the people he keeps as advisors, it is my believe that Presidential-Elect Obama has actively worked against the government and citizens of the United States.

But that's not really a big surprise.

Lets start with the housing problem. I think Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear had the best explanation for the housing market crash. Banks lent money to banks that didn't have money, and the banks that didn't have money lent money to illegal Mexicans in California that couldn't pay the money back.

The fact is, Liberal Democrats have several political policies that have been foisted on the American Taxpayer and business man. One of those policies is a complete rejection of anything resembling racial profiling. It's known now that the Associated Press, Reurters, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, and other news agencies actively worked to suppress and censor data, from at least 15 years ago, that housing companies were getting hit with charges of discrimination.

In simple terms, a person who was black, hispanic, non-white, or whatever of some minority, believed that they were unable to qualify for housing because of their minority status, rather than on points such as time in job, pay rate, expected job length, and so on. The result was a rash of small and large housing companies that took the risk to bet on the minorities, and bet on people who simply couldn't pay back the money for housing.

Eventually, that house of cards was going to fall, and many in the housing business saw the crash coming years ago. I know several local real estate dealers that were surprised the housing market managed to last as long as 2008 under the policies of the liberal democrats.

Quite simply, there were several people in the real estate and housing market that simply had no business being there in the first place. Had banks and housing companies stuck with strict standards for approval, the housing crash would never have happened. Many of these companies and banks knowingly violated federal regulation, willing broke existing laws, in order to make quick bucks, and comply with the demands of Liberal Democrats.

So, what does this have to do with proprietary software? Well, notice a common theme in the housing market? Liberal Democrats? Is any of this ringing a bell? The complete lack of personal responsibility? The complete lack of accountability?

It's no secret now that Steve Ballmer is firmly in the Obama camp, and it's no secret that I believe that Steve Ballmer is guilty of criminal fraud in the US. It's no secret that his company is a federally convicted, not just suspected, convicted criminal organization.

The same policies and beliefs that lead to the collapse of the Housing Market were the same policies that lead to the collapse of the U.S.S.R. Those same policies would have also lead to the collapse of quote Red China, up until China adopted some free market economic policies to survive. There is empirical evidence that the political and economic beliefs of the Liberal Democrats do not work. An entire country collapsed, what more needs to happen?

I know a lot of people in the Open-Source world who live and work in the US are stepping back from the election and wondering what they voted for. People wanted change, but Obama never defined change. Now we know what change is. That change is an implementation of the social and economic policies of Communist Russia. There's no other way to put it.

And Microsoft is a key part of the Democrats world. It's a key part of bringing together the control over everything, the key to making the government larger and more pervasive. Microsoft is the Big Brother capability, made real.

And I've been screaming at the top of my lungs for years that the Liberal Democrats are not your friends, that they are the enemy. And now? the evidence is coming to light that everybody who voted for Obama in the US... made one of the worst political mistakes ever.
