Economics of disaster -- an abysmal jobs report today revealing that job creation has ground to a halt.
Know that jobs were created in August this of course raises the stakes for president Obama's job speak next week.
More on that in a moment all of this of course as the East Coast struggles to recover from the damage left by hurricane -- -- BMR -- is CAD has run so low that is now -- -- emergency relief from.
From Joplin Missouri now that's a town that still rebuilding after tornadoes devastated the south earlier this year.
But -- the federal agency actually doing more harm than good.
With us now to discuss the economics of disasters -- men.
Well it's none other than freedom watch is all night watchman himself the one the only judge Andrew and Apollo -- -- welcome to yourself.
Our board Charles what -- -- on -- thank you thank you.
Eds adds it's almost -- the long you're -- New Jersey that's one of the hardest hit states how -- -- hold up.
Well we had a lot of flooding out here -- lost a couple of acres.
Of of corn crop but these things happen.
It's not the job of the federal government to protect -- -- -- from the weather because it can't do so and it's not the job of the federal government to compensate me from my losses.
Because the constitution does authorize -- to do so.
But yeah if there's a thing they'll judge a lot of people watching assuming say you know what.
You're financially better fits then they are and in fact I would says suggests probably their millions of Americans who say.
If any pregnancy is important that would be -- that is come to the rescue of so many people time after time what would you tell them.
If any agency is unconstitutional.
It -- -- look into the constitution is the supreme law of the land or it is that if it isn't.
That we have the rule of men and the government does whatever it wants with their money -- -- our freedom is it is the rule of the -- of law if it is has supreme law of the -- that -- -- that is.
And as ever wanna work for the government has taken an oath to uphold that they can only do what we've been cut the government can only do what the constitution authorizes it to do.
The only service that -- -- -- provides.
-- to make local politicians look good when they're able to give federal tax dollars strike that.
Money the federal government has borrowed it can't afford to read -- To people who suffered natural calamities.
These people do not have a right to it from the federal government.
And the federal government has no business tried to give this money away but it doesn't have.
The governor of New Jersey is distributing federal dollars when the come to my -- -- modest on the the way.
But the government picture as you distributing federal dollars that your and my grandchildren.
Will be paying back.
I would suggest that probably I don't know I can't speak for but I would think Chris Christie who you referring to and other governors around the country would say you know what.
We ship a whole lot of money to Washington all the time for a lot of things that we think are frivolous so periodically we like a piece of that money back.
That's a legitimate political argument for them to make and obviously the position that I argue is that we need to -- -- to look at government differently in our lives.
The government cannot protect us the government cannot keep us secure we should stop turning to govern.
When things don't go well because government is -- least efficient.
Entity in existence.
In order to help us out Chris Christie is correct to say we've given you a lot of money now you know or something back.
But Chris Christie shouldn't be in a position where the state of nature of the just sending all that money to wash them because Washington shouldn't be in a position taking all that money from maturity -- -- -- else.
Because much of what Washington does is not authorized by the constitution.
Is wasteful and just increases inflation and increases debt and increases taxes on future generations look.
This is not an easy argument to make.
When there's two feet of water in US in your basement.
But but government has lulled us into a false sense of security that when things go wrong it will help us out and it came.
It doesn't have the money it can't keep printing it it can't save us from the rain.
It can't deliver the mail it's about how we started taking care of ourselves and -- the constitution.
Do you -- got ready to come back on Tuesday.
Let's go judge.
Libertarian superstar Ron Paul -- maybe recent last couple days -- pull back a little bit doesn't that.
There is a place for quote rescue operations.
In other words maybe federal money could be spent something like that.
Is He is -- I don't know.
Losing some religion here.
I think that congressman Paul is making and natural bull argument which is that the greatest good in existence -- human life.
And that the government should protect human life you know if somebody's.
-- off a cliff.
-- the -- was about to fall.
One could argue that all government has a duty it's a of that person's life stop their -- but not -- corn crop not -- refrigerator but our life.
That's a very pure natural oral argument that congress imposed making and I'm plaudits for -- but -- also arguing He was unconstitutional.
Smaller government local government.
Is the only one that can solve these problems to does the government -- -- obligation affixed to the streets.
And the roads and the ponds and the streams that it -- yes.
But it doesn't have an obligation -- my basement.
All right well you know judge ahead to -- -- -- have to cut you off when you're a -- that you've gone -- -- probably -- I think -- does anyone everybody else -- watching and listening on Tuesday and has been -- filling -- for you thanks a lot -- presenting the luck with everything on the weekend thank you -- already and.
