Conscious Choice cover

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

 
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.

 

“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

Obamacare and amnesty: working together to screw Americans

Finding out what’s in it: Because of the way Obamacare is written, it provides employees an incentive to hire illegal immigrants — temporarily and illegally given amnesty by Obama — instead of legal Americans.

Under the president’s new amnesty, businesses will have a $3,000-per-employee incentive to hire illegal immigrants over native-born workers because of a quirk of Obamacare. President Obama’s temporary amnesty, which lasts three years, declares up to 5 million illegal immigrants to be lawfully in the country and eligible for work permits, but it still deems them ineligible for public benefits such as buying insurance on Obamacare’s health exchanges. Under the Affordable Care Act, that means businesses who hire them won’t have to pay a penalty for not providing them health coverage — making them $3,000 more attractive than a similar native-born worker, whom the business by law would have to cover.

Just remember: Obama and the Democrats care! Though what they care about is maybe something more Americans should ask themselves.

    Why am I continually surprised that government has screwed us yet again? Sorry, that was supposed to be “screwed up” yet again (I’m so embarrassed).

    I guess the better question to ask is: “is this an unintended consequence, or was Obama’s announcement delayed from summer to after the elections because he took this long to come up with this new bad idea?”

    I used to joke that government would create laws by asking around what sort of bad idea they could turn into law, then in committee they would figure out how to make it even worse, on the floor they would ask each other how to make it worser still, and finally the other house would make it as bad as humanly (or at least Congressionally) possible.

    It seems that they really do that — at least they do now — with the further step that the president finds ways to implement it so that it is the worst of all possible laws that they could have come up with.

    (Then the Supreme Court deems all illegal aspects of the law to be Constitutional, even if they have to find some way to change the law into some hideous tool of tyranny to do it.)

    From the article: “The Obama administration has violated criminal statutes with an abandon that Nixon and his minions never dreamed of.”

    People keep saying this, but Obama’s administration has yet to be stopped from continuing to do it — and with long-lasting consequences that horribly disfigure and damage the very nature and spirit of the United States as well as We the People.

    Just wait, its going to get even worse…

    It always does get worse. And I will still be surprised that they could possibly make it worse (and that they figured out how — generally I consider politicians enormously stupid, but it takes real brains (and malice) to consistently be this bad).
