Malevolent Ideology or Benevolent Religion?

7 Deadly Sins vs. 7 Virtues

Lust vs. Chastity
Gluttony vs. Temperance
Greed vs. Charity
Sloth vs. Diligence
Wrath vs. Patience
Envy vs. Kindness
Pride vs. Humility

Wonder how Mohammedism would rate regarding above 14?

Utah: Online Porn Capital of America?

One key finding: The biggest consumers of online adult entertainment live in the great state of Utah. An average of 5.47 people per 1000 broadband subscribers pay for porn in Orrin Hatch's home state. (Utah also leads in porn consumption among the general population and dial-up users, in case you're wondering.)

Deception at Core of Obama Plans

WASHINGTON -- Forget the pork. Forget the waste. Forget the 8,570 earmarks in a bill supported by a president who poses as the scourge of earmarks. Forget the "$2 trillion dollars in savings" that "we have already identified," $1.6 trillion of which President Obama's budget director later admits is the "savings" of not continuing the surge in Iraq until 2019 -- 11 years after George Bush ended it, and eight years after even Bush would have had us out of Iraq completely.

Forget all of this. This is run-of-the-mill budget trickery. True, Obama's tricks come festooned with strings of zeros tacked onto the end. But that's a matter of scale, not principle.

All presidents do that. But few undertake the kind of brazen deception at the heart of Obama's radically transformative economic plan, a rhetorical sleight of hand so smoothly offered that few noticed.

The logic of Obama's address to Congress went like this:

"Our economy did not fall into decline overnight," he averred. Indeed, it all began before the housing crisis. What did we do wrong? We are paying for past sins in three principal areas: energy, health care, and education -- importing too much oil and not finding new sources of energy (as in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the Outer Continental Shelf?), not reforming health care, and tolerating too many bad schools.

The "day of reckoning" has now arrived. And because "it is only by understanding how we arrived at this moment that we'll be able to lift ourselves out of this predicament," Obama has come to redeem us with his far-seeing program of universal, heavily nationalized health care; a cap-and-trade tax on energy; and a major federalization of education with universal access to college as the goal.

Amazing. As an explanation of our current economic difficulties, this is total fantasy. As a cure for rapidly growing joblessness, a massive destruction of wealth, a deepening worldwide recession, this is perhaps the greatest non sequitur ever foisted upon the American people. ...

Obama's Radicalism Is Killing the Dow
A financial crisis is the worst time to change the foundations of American capitalism.

...Increasing the top tax rates on earnings to 39.6% and on capital gains and dividends to 20% will reduce incentives for our most productive citizens and small businesses to work, save and invest -- with effective rates higher still because of restrictions on itemized deductions and raising the Social Security cap. As every economics student learns, high marginal rates distort economic decisions, the damage from which rises with the square of the rates (doubling the rates quadruples the harm). The president claims he is only hitting 2% of the population, but many more will at some point be in these brackets.

As for energy policy, the president's cap-and-trade plan for CO2 would ensnare a vast network of covered sources, opening up countless opportunities for political manipulation, bureaucracy, or worse. It would likely exacerbate volatility in energy prices, as permit prices soar in booms and collapse in busts. The European emissions trading system has been a dismal failure. A direct, transparent carbon tax would be far better.

Moreover, the president's energy proposals radically underestimate the time frame for bringing alternatives plausibly to scale. His own Energy Department estimates we will need a lot more oil and gas in the meantime, necessitating $11 trillion in capital investment to avoid permanently higher prices.

The president proposes a large defense drawdown to pay for exploding nondefense outlays -- similar to those of Presidents Carter and Clinton -- which were widely perceived by both Republicans and Democrats as having gone too far, leaving large holes in our military. We paid a high price for those mistakes and should not repeat them.

The president's proposed limitations on the value of itemized deductions for those in the top tax brackets would clobber itemized charitable contributions, half of which are by those at the top. This change effectively increases the cost to the donor by roughly 20% (to just over 72 cents from 60 cents per dollar donated). Estimates of the responsiveness of giving to after-tax prices range from a bit above to a little below proportionate, so reductions in giving will be large and permanent, even after the recession ends and the financial markets rebound. ...

...The pervasive government subsidies and mandates -- in health, pharmaceuticals, energy and the like -- will do a poor job of picking winners and losers (ask the Japanese or Europeans) and will be difficult to unwind as recipients lobby for continuation and expansion. Expanding the scale and scope of government largess means that more and more of our best entrepreneurs, managers and workers will spend their time and talent chasing handouts subject to bureaucratic diktats, not the marketplace needs and wants of consumers.

Our competitors have lower corporate tax rates and tax only domestic earnings, yet the budget seeks to restrict deferral of taxes on overseas earnings, arguing it drives jobs overseas. But the academic research (most notably by Mihir Desai, C. Fritz Foley and James Hines Jr.) reveals the opposite: American firms' overseas investments strengthen their domestic operations and employee compensation.

New and expanded refundable tax credits would raise the fraction of taxpayers paying no income taxes to almost 50% from 38%. This is potentially the most pernicious feature of the president's budget, because it would cement a permanent voting majority with no stake in controlling the cost of general government.

From the poorly designed stimulus bill and vague new financial rescue plan, to the enormous expansion of government spending, taxes and debt somehow permanently strengthening economic growth, the assumptions underlying the president's economic program seem bereft of rigorous analysis and a careful reading of history. ...

The Straw That Broke... (a poem)
Russ Vaughn (Americanthinker.com)

A plodding camel all these years,

I strode, I served like all my peers.

Conserving what I knew I'd need,

I paid no heed to others' greed.

My thirst for excess I suppressed,

Believing so of all the rest;

Just trekking on to greener dreams,

Of green oases with clear streams.


With little warning came the cry,

Your oases died, the streams run dry.

Far too old for further treks,

My oasis gone, my green dreams wrecks,

I stand bewildered, old heart grieving,

Mad at those whose greedy thieving,

Led me down this waterless track,

And dropped the straw that broke my back.

gmsc's money tips #17:

I mentioned some blogs that are a good source of financial advice in money tips #8.

Here are a few more that I really should've mentioned earlier, but didn't do so for one reason or another:

Consumerist's Personal Finance Category – I mentioned Consumerist, but wanted to put special attention to their Personal Finance category. It usually has more current event-related finance information (free goodies, special deals, and so on) than its sibling blog (siblog?) Lifehacker and its Personal Finance category

Coyote Blog's Economics Category – I've also mentioned Coyote Blog before, but you should pay special attention to the Economic section in the current climate, as Coyote seems to have a very clear head and the ability to convey his perception just as clearly.

The Objective American – Alas, the writer of this excellent blog, Ernie Ross, died back in 2003 (The blog itself is only available via the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine). However, he wrote about principles, so a large percentage of his entries still ring true today. The economic posts are especially interesting, both as a view from the past, and their relevancy to today's climate. If you enjoy Bill Whittle's work, I know you'll enjoy Ernie Ross' work, as well.

Good morning, newbie ...Your second post!

You know, this is the third UK article I've read today that contains the snark re WAB. I'm rubbing my hands in anticipation of the Brits getting a really good head of steam going and then proceed to skewer her in their unique and deadly (but oh-so-polite) manner. It's already a joy to see.

/Welcome!


Not only did she demonstrate that she spent approximately three seconds contemplating the needs of the Brown boys (having an aide pop to the White House gift shop for a piece of merchandising does not imply a great deal of thought), she appeared to show a most uncharacteristic lapse of judgment.

It might have been possible to overlook the incident were it not for the official photograph.

The White House released one picture of the two women and it does not appear to have been selected with any kind of special relationship in mind. There is a menacing bunch of pink peonies in the foreground and the angle is most unflattering to Mrs Brown, who has the air of a woman very much in need of a stiff drink.

Whether deliberate or not, the whole thing feels like a snub.

As for Fraser and John, their parents’ trip to America will always be remembered as the time that “Mum and Dad went to see the President, and all we got was this lousy plastic helicopter”.

Barack Obama sends bust of Winston Churchill on its way back to Britain
Barack Obama has sent Sir Winston Churchill packing and pulse rates soaring among anxious British diplomats.

...Diplomats were at first reluctant to discuss the whereabouts of the Churchill bronze, after its ejection from the seat of American power. But the British Embassy in Washington has now confirmed that it sits in the palatial residence of ambassador Sir Nigel Sheinwald, just down the road from Vice President Joe Biden's official residence. It is not clear whether the ambassador plans to keep it in Washington or send it back to London.

American politicians have made quoting Churchill, whose mother was American, something of an art form, but not Mr Obama, who prefers to cite the words and works of his hero Abraham Lincoln. Indeed a bust of Mr Lincoln now sits in the Oval Office where Epstein's Churchill once ruled the roost.

Churchill has less happy connotations for Mr Obama than those American politicians who celebrate his wartime leadership. It was during Churchill's second premiership that Britain suppressed Kenya's Mau Mau rebellion. Among Kenyans allegedly tortured by the colonial regime included one Hussein Onyango Obama, the President's grandfather. ...

The man appears to have a chip on his shoulder the size of Texas. IMO it is himself with whom he has the axe to grind, although it is much less painful to wield it outward. I'll take a small liberty and go ahead and say he's pissed that he was born with the skin color he has and the world will somehow pay. Starting with us.

/you can't read his books without reaching that conclusion

//I don't believe he happily chose to identify with his black side and reject his white side ...I believe he figured out that claiming his black side offered many more opportunities for exploitation.

Just send this.

Dear IRS,

I am sorry to inform you that I will not be able to pay taxes owed April 15, but all is not lost.

I have paid these taxes: accounts receivable tax, building permit tax, CDL tax, cigarette tax, corporate income tax, dog license tax, federal income tax, unemployment tax, gasoline tax, hunting license tax, fishing license tax, waterfowl stamp tax, inheritance tax, inventory tax, liquor tax, luxury tax, Medicare tax, city, school and county property tax (up 33 percent last 4 years), real estate tax, social security tax, road usage tax, toll road tax, state and city sales tax, recreational vehicle tax, state franchise tax, state unemployment tax, telephone federal excise tax, telephone federal state and local surcharge tax, telephone minimum usage surcharge tax, telephone state and local tax, utility tax, vehicle license registration tax, capitol gains tax, lease severance tax, oil and gas assessment tax, Colorado property tax, Texas, Colorado, Wyoming,
Oklahoma and New Mexico sales tax, and many more that I can't recall but I have run out of space and money.

When you do not receive my check April 15, just know that it is an honest mistake. Please treat me the same way you treated Congressmen Charles Rangle, Chris Dodd, Barney Frank and ex-Congressman Tom Daschle and, of course, your boss Timothy Geithner.

No penalties and no interest.

Sincerely,

gmsc

Crush depth for US Stock Market is probably when you can buy the Dow 30 for 1 ounce of gold. I don't see it getting there without a civil war happening first.

After the 29 crash, the market lost 50%+, then totally recovered and rallied in 36-37. The "economy" was still totally in the crapper the whole time. In 37 the Dow crashed hard again, but no one noticed because we had soup lines, New Deal make work-do nothing projects, and 25% unemployment regardless.

Awww...those who spend their life advocating things are not feeling a sense of adulthood!

Little Miss Perky Nose and Silk Blouse is not making mad benjamins

And I’m not saying that little-miss-perky-nose-and-silk-blouse is a bad person.

But, aside from her own sense of self worth, what has she accomplished in the last decade?

Pretty much zero.

Numerous young Washingtonians bemoan the improvisational and protracted career track of the area’s public interest profession. They say the high competition for comparatively low-paying jobs saps their sense of adulthood, forcing them to spend their 20s or early 30s moving from college to work to graduate school and back…

Many globally minded people choose to work for nongovernmental organizations, or NGOs, that advocate certain causes…

So the best they can imagine doing is “advocating”.

Here’s a hint: maybe the reason that your “sense of adulthood” is “sapped” is because you haven’t been doing anything at all adult.

Adults accomplish things.

How was Hussein Dolt recieved by the Marines at Lejune lsat week? I only heard snippets from his appearence there and you could hear a pin drop- no applause or anything.....

I suspect if there was an enthusiastic welcome or anything more than polite applauze, the MSM would've been playing that over and over.

re: #142 Erik The Red

Do you know what happened this week
back in 1850, 158 years ago?


* California became a state.
* The State had no electricity.
* The State had no money.
* Almost everyone spoke Spanish.
* There were gunfights in the streets.

So basically, it was just like California today; except the
women had real breasts and the men didn't hold hands.

Oh, that is good! LOL!
I had to pass it on.

218 J.D.  Fri, Mar 6, 2009 2:26:23am

Gordon blue [Mark Steyn]

Jonah, there are two possible explanations for the humiliations inflicted by the Obama Administration on Mr Brown:

One is that (as several alleged experts have told me) in this area the president genuinely differs from his predecessors. Take that Martin Gilbert biography of Churchill the Prime Minister gave him: I'll wager Obama will never read a word of it. To him, Sir Winston is not the great wartime leader, the indispensable man in civilization's darkest hour (1940-41), but the post-war leader responsible for the ruthless suppression of the Mau-Mau rebellion in his father's Kenya. Churchill is not the way to Obama's heart.

And, in a broader sense, he has no particular attachment to "the west" - to the transatlantic partnership, the Anglo-American relationship, any of it. As I touched on in NR the other week, to his admirers he represents a cooler post-western "hybridity". And, given where he chose to spend his entire adult life, that seems entirely likely.

The simpler explanation, which I find more persuasive, is that he's just too narcissistic: He's the star and these foreign prime ministers are rather dreary extras. And unfortunately he's not a good enough actor to conceal his lack of interest in them. And his courtiers take pretty much the same line, which is why it never occurred to them that some no-name Brit would be insulted at not getting the multi-flagged joint presser.

(For what it's worth, I heard similar reports of the president's remoteness on his flying visit to Ottawa, where the only person he seemed to get any kind of kick out of was Her Majesty's vicereine, Michaelle Jean, who happens to be a fine-looking woman, if you're into leftie babes.)

Ask him what the point of him making "250,000 and above" is if his dear leader is going to take so much of it away for those who don't bust their ass taking LSATs and the BAR and all of that like he did and will have to do.

Random thought of the evening: Hussein Dolt has a knack for bringing exceptionally inept wanna-be assassins out of the woodwork. I mean for all the concerns I heard about his safety, the only two known 'plots' on his life amounted to some unemployable losers saying in a chatroom 'I'm gonna kill him- it has to be done. Can anyone here provide me with a gun and bus fare to D.C.?'

Or the 'We're gonna go on a killing spree as soon as we rob a gun store with a machete' neo-nazis from during the election.

re: #228 littleoldlady

I've successfully clammed down after the last two days of this crap and I am not going to get back into it. Suffice it to say that I get a fair amount of shit from "the others" and I refuse to back down. (Has anyone else noticed that this whole "toeing the line" thing has spread furiously?)

I feel like the lone voice. Well, except for here.

Apparently there's all kinds of jobs available in Saskatchewan right now...altho' I think for us Americans it would require a work permit and/or getting paid under the table in a currency that's only worth 3/4 to 2/3rds the value of the US$.

Still, the premier of Saskatchewan seems to be in favor of low taxes and appreciates the results of keeping the cost of living and doing business in his province down.

The writing is on the wall today for John Tory, the leader of the Ontario Conservative Party, who yesterday failed yet again to secure a seat in the Provincial Legislature, when he lost a byelection in a supposedly "safe" Conservative riding.
Watch for Tory to step down as leader in the next few days. That is, unless he once again refuses to look in the mirror and recognize himself for what he really is - a perpetual loser lacking in sufficient self-respect to step aside for the good of his party.

On Monday (09/02) Warrington Bank Quay railway station erected signs forbidding couples from expressing their love in front of the building, and asked to take it instead into a designated Kissing Zone.

The rail company said that the kissing couples were holding up the queues.

Self-pity website gives French entrepreneurs reason to be cheerful
A French internet forum whose raison d'être is self-pity has become a hit in France and an American version is unexpectedly taking the United States by storm.

...The tone of the sites sits well with a marked pessimistic side to the French character. Sociologists often say the French are deeply gloomy about the future of society as a whole but are among the world's happiest and contented individuals.

However, some psychologists have warned that constantly describing oneself as a loser can tempt fate and prevent one from succeeding.

Good morning.

Looks like the market will open down (notice a pattern here folks?) as the new unemployment data is due out. They anticipate more unemployed in the 650,000 range and for the unemployment rate to rise to 8%.

Get ready for another large sell off in the next few days. There is a growing sense of futility for those still in the market, and we are likely approaching the point of "capitulation", which is what the technicians call the point where investors throw in the towel, give up on the market, and sell out at any price they can get. The technicians believe that you can't start rebuilding the market until you hit the point of capitulation. The market is now down over 20% since the Messiah was sworn in and over 30% since he was elected. Private investors have lost trillions in wealth during Obama's War on Wealth.

Tim Geithner can not get anybody to work for him. Many of his appointees are now withdrawing their applications to work for him.

Treasury secretary's choice for deputy withdraws

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The person Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner wanted as his chief deputy has withdrawn from consideration, dealing a setback to the understaffed agency as it struggles to address the worst financial crisis in decades.

Annette Nazareth, a former senior staffer and commissioner with the Securities and Exchange Commission, made "a personal decision" to withdraw from the process, according to a person familiar with her decision.

The decision followed more than a month of intense scrutiny of her taxes and multiple interviews. No tax problems or other issues arose during Nazareth's vetting, said the person, who requested anonymity because Geithner's choice of Nazareth was never announced officially.

Obama's new FDIC chair, Sheila Bair, caused a major run on the banks by talking openly that the FDIC might run out of of money. Rather than quietly deal with any funding issues behind the scenes and then announce the result when the funding was tied down, she comes out publicly with the problem and causes another panic. Bair could not have said anything more damaging to the financial system at this time.

And then there is the Messiah himself, who is now getting caught just outright lying. Yesterday he said that someone goes bankrupt every 30 seconds over medical bills. The 2001 survey that this stat was taken from has since been determined to be false and unsupportable by multiple unbiased reviewers. Basically, Obama is making it up as he goes along now.

I hope those who voted for Obama are happy now.

A Ditch, Not a Summit

When President Obama opened today’s summit on health care reform at the White House, he said:

In this effort, every voice has to be heard. Every idea must be considered.

Of course, he spoke those words to a room that contained not a single advocate of free-market health care reform.

* No one from the American Enterprise Institute (ranked the #5 think tank in the world for health policy)
* No one from the Cato Institute (ranked #7)
* No one from the National Center for Policy Analysis (ranked #10)
* No one from the Manhattan Institute
* No one from the Pacific Research Institute
* No one from the Galen Institute
* No one from the Heritage Foundation
* The list goes on…

Obama did, however, invite people from left-wing think tanks, including avowed advocates of socialized medicine. That makes Obama’s pledge of openness a farce, and today’s event a charade.

Or as my colleague Wayne Crews puts it: it’s a ditch, not a summit.

Debating Health-Care [Kathryn Jean Lopez]

Another common argument for more government insurance is that the uninsured shift costs to private payers when they avail themselves of the health-care safety net — thus jacking up health-care premiums in the private sector. Many reform advocates make this claim, including Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D., Mass.) and Sen. Baucus in an op-ed in this newspaper.

This is not the case. In the first place, a recent CBO report ("Key Issues in Analyzing Major Health Insurance Proposals, " December 2008) is clear on one issue: Working to achieve universal coverage through expanding government's role in health care will increase total costs and therefore either increase premiums or taxes, not reduce them. As for the argument that the uninsured shift costs, Mr. Elmendorf was quite direct dispelling this myth in his testimony before Mr. Baucus's committee. "Overall," he said, "the effect of uncompensated care on private-sector payment rates appears to be limited."

In fact, insofar as there is a cost shift, it derives from the government programs Medicare and Medicaid, which reimburse providers at rates roughly 20% to 40% lower than the private providers. This has been detailed by the widely used and quoted health consultant firm, the Lewin Group. But this is conveniently ignored by those who want to expand government health care.

Preventative care, disease management and electronic medical records are also constantly cited as big cost-savers. The idea here is that if our health-care system was set up to prevent disease rather than just treat it, and could do so without duplicative paper records, it could save money. It's a great hypothesis, but research does not indicate it amounts to much. "In many cases," as Mr. Elmendorf testified regarding such initiatives, "those studies do not support claims of reductions in health spending or budgetary reductions."

Americans like their current health care, its plethora of choice and its intensive, high tech approach to fixing our ailments. A Gallup survey in December reported that "on balance, Americans still favor maintaining the current system, 49% to 41%." But the CBO is very clear that saving money on health care involves doing less of the very things Americans like the most.

"Studies attribute the bulk of the cost of growth to the development of new treatments and other medical technologies," the CBO notes in a report issued last December, later adding, "Given the central role of medical technology in cost growth, reducing or slowing spending over the long term would probably require decreasing the pace of adopting new treatments and procedures or limiting the breadth of their application."

In other words, reducing costs means rationing the care of those who currently have private insurance and Medicare.

After the 29 crash, the market lost 50%+, then totally recovered and rallied in 36-37. The "economy" was still totally in the crapper the whole time. In 37 the Dow crashed hard again, but no one noticed because we had soup lines, New Deal make work-do nothing projects, and 25% unemployment regardless.

FYI- The Dow bottomed in 1932 having lost 89% from the peak. It did recover sharply to 1937 but did not get back to the pre-crash peak until 1954

Health 'Reformers' Ignore Facts
Debunking the Democratic argument for government-run health care.

The Democrats' case to expand government health care is so full of holes that passing it quickly is their only hope. If Americans slow down and ask questions, they will be hard-put to come up with answers.

In fact, if members of Congress slow down long enough to read the detailed reports of their own Congressional Budget Office (CBO) -- or even its director's recent Senate testimony -- they will understand that many of the slogans they use to justify government intervention are false.

Statist health-care reform, for example, is said to be needed to help the economy recover in a period of deepening gloom. The president has made this argument on numerous occasions, such as earlier this week when he announced Kathleen Sebelius as his pick for Secretary of Health and Human Resources. So too has Henry Waxman (D., Calif.), chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. "The costly failure of our health care system affects the financial health of our businesses," Mr. Waxman said at a conference at Families USA, the national nonprofit dedicated to health care for all Americans. "It affects our competitiveness in the world . . . This isn't something to put off; this is something to do right now to help fix our economy."

Health care certainly plays a major role in the U.S. economy, and by almost any objective account a highly positive role. It employs 13 million Americans and accounts for one out of 10 jobs. But the assertion that the costs of providing health insurance cripples American corporations in the global economy is simply wrong. ...

Sharia's Inroads in Europe - Italian Court: 'Beaten Up for "Her Own Good"'
the corner, again...

Muslim women were quick to denounce the supreme court's decision. Among them, Souad Sbai, president of the Organization of Moroccan Women in Italy.

But on appeal, the family was acquitted because the court deemed that the young woman was beaten up for "her own good." The Bologna public prosecutor's office then disputed the acquittal of the three accused parties, but the Italian Supreme Court of Cassation dismissed it and ruled in favor of the charged parties.

SNIP

Muslim women were quick to denounce the supreme court's decision. Among them, Souad Sbai, president of the Organization of Moroccan Women in Italy.

She said, "It is a shame, this verdict is worthy of an Arab country where the Sharia would be in vigor. In the name of multiculturalism and respect of traditions, the judges apply two kinds of rules: one for the Italians and one for the immigrants. A Catholic father that would have acted this way would have been severely sentenced."

But the United Kingdom is a different story, indeed there close to 40 percent of young Muslims are in favor of Sharia law being implemented in Britain. The idea seems to be also making headway among non-Muslims. So, last year, Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, gave his support for the courts in Britain, saying that the legal recognition of them "seems unavoidable." He added, the United Kingdom has to "face up to the fact" that some of its citizens do not relate to the British legal system.

Williams argued that adopting parts of Islamic Sharia law would help maintain social cohesion. For example, Muslims could choose to have marital disputes or financial matters dealt within a Sharia court.

Very cool. It's amazing how much the internet has facilitated genealogy searches.

So true. A few weeks before that I found a scanned copy of the 1920 census paperwork that had my grandfather and grandmother listed. In fact, it had my grandfather at 26 and my grandmother at 16 -- my grandfather was actually older (I believe 29 or so) but he had lied about his age because my grandmother's parents refused to let her marry him if he was more that 10 years older than she. My father (and his siblings) didn't know how old he was until after he died and they looked at his birth certificate!

'Joe the Plumber' sues over Ohio records probe

17 hours ago

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — "Joe the Plumber" is suing three former state officials in Ohio, saying they violated his privacy when they gathered his personal information in a records search.

Samuel J. Wurzelbacher says in the federal lawsuit filed Thursday that he suffered emotional distress, harassment, humiliation and embarrassment as a result of their actions. He's seeking unspecified punitive damages.

The lawsuit names Helen Jones-Kelley, who resigned in December as director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, and two assistants.

Ohio's inspector general found that Jones-Kelley improperly used state computers to find personal information on Wurzelbacher, a Toledo-area man who rose to fame during the presidential campaign after asking Barack Obama about his tax plan.

‘Obama Bear Market’ Punishes Investors as Dow Slumps (Update1)

March 6 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama now has the distinction of presiding over his own bear market.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 20 percent since Inauguration Day, the fastest drop under a new president in at least 90 years, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The gauge has lost 53 percent from its October 2007 record of 14,164.53, slipping 4.1 percent to 6,594.44 yesterday. ...

"If Iran is allowed to go forward, in self-defense or for a variety of reasons we could have half-a-dozen countries in the region and 20 or 30 more around the world, doing the same thing, just in case," he told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

But Scowcroft and another former U.S. national security adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski, counseled against using military force to try to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

The Structural Relationships between the Body of Man and the Anthropoid Ape 1699

English Physician and comparative anatomist Edward Tyson publishes Orang-Outang, sive Homo Sylvestris; or, the Anatomy of a Pygmie Compared with that of a Monkey, an Ape and a Man, including 8 folding plates engraved by Michael Vandergucht after drawings bythe artist and anatomist, William Cowper.

Tyson's anatomy of the "orang-outang" was the first work to demonstrate scientifically the structural relationships between the anatomy of man and the anthropoid ape, in Tyson's case a chimpanzee. For Tyson the term Orang-Outang meant "man of the woods." The Dutch surgeon and anatomist Nicholas (or Nicolaes) Tulp had used the same words to describe a chimpanzee, which he illustrated in his Observationum medicarum (1641). The application of the phrase in its modern sense to the Pongo family had not yet occurred.

Perhaps with some humor , but also to confirm the anatomical similarities, Tyson had Cowper draw the standing dissected figures of chimpanzees in the style of the famous Vesalian musclemen. A believer in the "Great Chain of Being," Tyson identified the chimpanzee as the link directly below mankind, stating in his "Epistle Dedicatory" that it "seems the Nexus of the Animal and Rational." Tyson's anatomical study-- the first conducted of a great ape-- had a powerful influence on all subsequent thought on man's place in nature. The last section of Orang-Outang is devoted to "A philological essay concerning the pygmies of the ancients," an early and major contribution to the study of primate-oriented folklore. Cole, History of Comparative anatomy, 198-221. Montague, Edward Tyson (1943) ch. 8. Hook & Norman, The Haskell F. Norman Library of Science and Medicine (1991) No. 2120.

Two weeks ago an El Al captain of a Boeing 757 flying from a European destination to Israel ordered the removal of a number of passengers' suitcases from the plane to allow two El Al employees to get on the flight.

[Link: www.haaretz.com...]

In this case, the plane had reached its weight limit and the pilot decided to leave some luggage behind.

If you are very familiar with Israel Society and El Al, this story is very believable and kind of funny. Not if it was your luggage, but hey, ya got to have a sense of humor.

From one of my employees...

AN IRISH BLONDE IN A CASINO

An attractive blonde from Cork , Ireland arrived at the casino.

She seemed a little intoxicated and bet twenty-thousand Euros on a single roll
of the dice.

She said, 'I hope you don't mind, but I feel much luckier when I'm completely nude'.

With that, she stripped from the neck down, rolled the dice and with an Irish brogue

yelled, 'Come on, baby, Mama needs new clothes!'

As the dice came to a stop, she jumped up and down and squealed..

'YES! YES! I WON, I WON!'

She hugged each of the dealers and then picked up her winnings and

her clothes and quickly departed.

The dealers stared at each other dumbfounded.
Finally, one of them asked, 'What did she roll?'

The other answered, 'I don't know - I thought you were watching.'

MORAL OF THE STORY -

Not all Irish are drunks,
not all blondes are dumb,
but all men...are men.

1) Ruin the economy and make people helpless.

2) Make people count on the government for their every need, under the threat that if they don't do things the way the Messiah wants, they are left out in the cold.

3) Implement a National ID card that is needed to do _anything_, work, buy, sell, whatever, so you can be monitored and your consumption taxed and "illegal" behaviors punished.

Good morning folks. A startlingly frank report about the Obamas from a UK journalist reveals something troubling in Obamaland,

Was 'Lady Macbeth' behind Barack Obama's snub of Gordon Brown?

On US radio's Garrison show today, I was asked for my reaction as a true born Englishman to President Obama's double insult - first the sending back of the Winston Churchill bust, then his snub to Gordon Brown. "Tough one. Really tough one," I said, torn - as most of surely are - between delight at seeing Brown roundly humiliated, and dismay at having the special relationship so peremptorily, cruelly and bafflingly ruptured.

What was the guy thinking? In researching my new book Welcome to Obamaland, I discovered that Obama's judgment is pretty dreadful - but this? My favourite theory so far - suggested by presenter Greg Garrison - was that it was a move calculated to please his Lady Macbeth. At the moment in Britain, we're still in the "Doesn't she look fabulous in a designer frock" stage of understanding of Michelle Obama. Gradually, though, we'll begin to realise that she is every bit the terrifying executive's wife that Hillary Clinton was. Or, shudder, Cherie Blair.

...no matter how utterly rubbish we have become as a nation in the Blair/Brown years, Britain's friendship is something Obama will come to regret having dispensed with so lightly. This was not the act of a global statesman, but of a hormonal teenager dismissing her bestest of best BFs for no other reason than that she felt like it and she can, so there.

RTWT!

707 ciaospirit  Fri, Mar 6, 2009 6:09:00am

The President and Congress are an embarrassment. Obama can't get enough of Hollywood and musicians. Pitt has superpowers so no need to worry about the economy.

Capitol Hill goes gaga over Brad Pitt

From the moment he stepped into the Capitol on Thursday, sunglassed and goateed, Pitt's star power transformed congressional business-as-usual in a way any lawmaker or new president might envy.

Pitt's superpowers are such that he and President Barack Obama pulled off an improbably secret meeting on the same topic earlier in the day, White House spokesman Thomas F. Vietor confirmed.

I've read a bunch of pieces on the topic, and I can say that it is definitely not a "conspiracy theory", as many of the proposals put forward have already been enacted and have had the desired result.

I've not found it. The other day, someone (you?) suggested that it's probably archived on-line but costs to get it.

re: #669 lincolntf

I just searched The Nation archives online and found this list:

A Strategy to End Poverty

Cloward, Richard A. %P% May 2, 1966 issue


The article focuses on a strategy which affords the basis for a convergence of civil rights organizations, militant anti-poverty groups and the poor. If this strategy were implemented, a political crisis would result that could lead to legislation for a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty. The distribution of public assistance has been a local and state responsibility, and that accounts in large part for the abysmal character of welfare practices. Despite the growing involvement of federal agencies in supervisory and reimbursement arrangements, state and local community forces are still decisive.

The archives are pay-per-view. It will cost you $2.95 to read the whole thing.

Netanyahu gets asked a question by British TV:

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU INTERVIEW WITH BRITISH TELEVISION THIS PAST WEEK. The interviewer asked him: "How come so many more Palestinians have been killed in this conflict than Israelis?" (A nasty question if there ever was one!)

Netanyahu: "Are you sure that you want to start asking in that direction?"

Interviewer: Why not?

Netanyahu: "Because in World War II more Germans were killed than British and Americans combined, but there is no doubt in anyone's mind that the war was caused by Germany 's aggression. And in response to the German blitz on London , the British wiped out the entire city of Dresden , burning to death more German civilians than the number of people killed in Hiroshima. Moreover, I could remind you that in 1944, when the R.A.F. tried to bomb the Gestapo Headquarters in Copenhagen , some of the bombs missed their target and fell on a Danish children's hospital, killing 83 little children . Perhaps you have another question?"

One way to do that is to eliminate/reduce charitable deductions for those deemed "rich".

Now, here's something that's been poking around my mind lately. Moonbats might claim that giving people deductions for charitable donations prove that people are greedy, that if they really cared, they'd just give with no expectation of a reduction in taxes.

This is the guy... Wikipedia says there are reports of the fangs being long enough to bite through soft leather shoes. That may be an urban myth. Still...

These are common around Sydney, and a few years ago at another house we had we found one upstairs - the spider was actually standing up in attack mode! Bloody scary that was....

I took it to work the next day (the DEAD spider) and we identified it from the spider chart - I worked in a hospital at that time

I'm sure it can't get through leather, but it does hide in clothes like so many other spiders - we always shake shoes before putting them on :-)

If we still have the stomach to do so.

It's all part of the master plan...

1) Ruin the economy and make people helpless.

2) Make people count on the government for their every need, under the threat that if they don't do things the way the Messiah wants, they are left out in the cold.

3) Implement a National ID card that is needed to do _anything_, work, buy, sell, whatever, so you can be monitored and your consumption taxed and "illegal" behaviors punished.

I know all about that stuff...I was railing on it last summer...right now the entire GOP needs to start knocking on BO...reps and governors and senators...there is a rising tide, it aint over yet, it's just getting started

That's just wrong. The Nirthers are basing their claims on lies, just as the Troofers do. Cloward and Piven are real humans who wrote a real strategy that has been utilized. It's not as if they wrote it after the fact to explain seemingly disparate and random events.

The Cloward-Piven strategy is real and well known to community organizers and leftists militants. It's a given Obama learned about it at college and during his work with ACORN & etc. The speculation is about whether the Obama administration is currently following a C-P strategy.

There are 2 ways to know for sure if Obama is following a C-P strategy.


1. Either Obama or one of his aids comes out and says so, or,
2. A sufficient number of his policies are so disastrous, and in the particular ways defined by the C-P strategy, that it becomes not only highly likely that he is doing a C-P, but also statistically unlikely he could be screwing up so badly by accident.

Nonprofits fret over Obama’s plan to tax wealthy.

“We are generally supportive of health-care reform and working with the administration toward this goal, but I don’t see it as my job to find the money for this," said William Daroff, UJC’s vice president for public policy and the director of its Washington office, which lobbies for hundreds of millions of dollars annually in federal money for social services.

"It is my job to say this is the wrong place to get it because you are hurting those you are attempting to help -- average folks in need of the services of charities. Beyond that there are over 15 million people who work for nonprofits, and any decrease in contributions will exacerbate the tough times that many charities are already going through. In fact, many charities, and many federations, are already laying off people."

The o insults the PM of England and then wants to parley with the Queen. The jobless rate just hit 8.1% and the DOW is falling faster than real-estate values, just barely. The proposed budget includes military cuts the size of Texas and deficits large enough for our children and their grand children to suffer through. Those not paying taxes will increase to 50% to insure a perpetual voting majority with their hand out while successful entrepreneurs are going to get hammered with tax increases.

Memo to barry: US Companies Pay the Highest Taxes in the World

It may come as a surprise that US companies pay the highest taxes in the world. Yes, you read that right. American businesses, large and small and across all industries pay from 35% to 41.6% of their income in combined state and federal taxes. The 41.6% maximum rate is scheduled to rise to 46.2% in 2010 when President Obama's promised tax increases are implemented. Compare that to socialist France where companies pay only 34.4% in taxes, to China where the rate is 25%, or Russia which levies a mere 24%. Corporations in Ireland, Europe's fastest growing economy for the
last 18 years, pay just 12.5% in taxes.


Because of its dual taxation system, US businesses and individuals are required to pay both state and federal taxes on their income. When combined both these taxes range from a minimum of 35% in states like Nevada, South Dakota, and Wyoming that do not tax business income, to a maximum of 41.6% in Iowa, the state with the highest corporate tax rate of 12%.

The problem now is that we no longer live in a society that can grow its own food, get along without electricity or water or the Ipod.

Our skill sets are different and therefore we need to read books on container gardening, learn to store staple food items now--if things improve you have lost nothing, but if they get a lot worse, you have something to fall back on. Buy for the kids now, on sale or at the Goodwil. Things they might need next year....get them less expensively now, ahead of time.

re: #823 Kenneth

"The key to sparking this rebellion would be to expose the inadequacy of the welfare state. Cloward-Piven's early promoters cited radical organizer Saul Alinsky as their inspiration. "Make the enemy live up to their (sic) own book of rules," Alinsky wrote in his 1972 book Rules for Radicals. When pressed to honor every word of every law and statute, every Judaeo-Christian moral tenet, and every implicit promise of the liberal social contract, human agencies inevitably fall short. The system's failure to "live up" to its rule book can then be used to discredit it altogether, and to replace the capitalist "rule book" with a socialist one."

I think the reason that many still see this as a conspiracy theory is that the language and intent are so blunt. Nowadays, pols say/do the exact thing C-P lays out, but they couch it in terms of "giving a voice to the voiceless" and "getting back to fairness".

Don't get me started! I was told by an esteemed academician the other day that we could no longer cite the statistic opinion that broken/fatherless homes contributed to the extreme high rates of black male crime/incarceration, as it has now been determined that single mother/fatherless homes are now considered to be the "cultural norm" for the African American culture, thereby having no attributable effect within that population.

/I keep waiting for my head to explode.

No, that's very good. By the same logic, the high rate of incarceration is also a basal statistic and no problem at all.

re: #826 yesandno

The problem now is that we no longer live in a society that can grow its own food, get along without electricity or water or the Ipod.

Our skill sets are different and therefore we need to read books on container gardening, learn to store staple food items now--if things improve you have lost nothing, but if they get a lot worse, you have something to fall back on. Buy for the kids now, on sale or at the Goodwil. Things they might need next year....get them less expensively now, ahead of time.

Prepare for the worse and hope for the best.

We've been doing these things for years (lots of kids one income) and we are learning to cut back even more now. In a way its good life skills for the kids, but when I see their savings sucked dry it worries me. 18 months a go my sons mission fund was enough to get him through two years, buy his clothing and perhaps have some left over for his first year of college. Now I'm afraid there isn't enough to pay for the mission without the clothes and school. He departs in 3 weeks and we may have to end up supplementing his funds by the time his two years are up.

We do enjoy gardening. (We'll I enjoy it, the kids tolerate it). By the time we pay for the seeds, fertilizer and gas for the tiller the tomatoes are probably $5 each, but they are soooooo good off the vine. We've had lots of luck with beans and squash too. I can't wait to get out there tomorrow and till. 75 degrees in Atlanta!

Theres a whole laundry list of things that are fun that I can't do now. Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on your POV) I joined up with the Mormons when I was 21 and haven't been doing them for a long time. Probably saved my life a few times already.

Oh, the jihadi's he'll welcome. Remember, he said the call to prayer is a sweet sound. He'll probably try to have a mosque built around the Washington Monument, and turn the monument into the minaret.

He is far worse than I thought he'd be. We got a recap of the Carter administration in a month; that leaves 47 months to do more damage.
They used to say a president would get at least a 60 day honeymoon; his was over at 30.

GOP Forces Senate to Delay Vote on $410B Spending Bill

Senate Democratic leaders are still coming up short as they work furiously behind the scenes to gather up 60 votes to pass a $410 billion spending bill that funds the government through September.

Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said Thursday night that he was one vote short of the votes needed despite calling Senate Appropriations Committee Republicans to try to secure support from about six of them. A vote had been scheduled for Thursday evening, but now the bill is on hold at least until Monday, meaning that for now most government departments will have to continue operating at 2008 spending levels.

Earlier Thursday, Reid said he had only three solid "yes" votes from the GOP: Sens. Thad Cochran of Mississippi, Richard Shelby of Alabama and Olympia Snowe of Maine.

Concern is high enough that the leadership team canceled a weekly background briefing with reporters in order to shore up the vote.

Among the targeted committee Republicans: Sens. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Bob Bennett of Utah, Lisa Murkowski of Arkansas and Kit Bond of Missouri.

If they don't pass this bloated swine carcass, they'll have to pass a stop gap bill, without earmarks and freezing the spending at previous 2008 levels.

Didn't get to listen to Rush yesterday, but read one of his comments that really struck home.

If he really wanted to do it and do it in a dramatic way instantly....stop ALL withholding of income tax for a year to everyone! it wouldn't be more than a trillion dollars. amazing! Can you imagine what would happen if we all got our gross wages? Course, Rush said that would never happen cause the people he wants to give money to ...DONT PAY TAXES!

Never. gonna. happen.

Greets and saluts from the NYC metro area. The Port Authority says that Ground Zero construction will create thousands of jobs over the next few years, but that's exactly what they've been saying for years now as construction was delayed. It's good that they're finally building - and the Freedom Tower is rising slowly but steadily - 10+ stories now. It's just that the wait was intolerable.

Meanwhile, the economic mess on Wall Street is making it tough to lease space around Lower Manhattan. Merill Lynch is consolidating with Bank of America and that means that the World Financial Center is losing a major tenant.

The economic mess also means that Tim Geithner is going to continue to have problems filling slots at Treasury. His choice for deputy, Annette Nazareth withdrew because of her prior experience. She was at the SEC and failed to pick up on the Wall Street excessive risk taking that led to the toxic paper crisis. Her job? Heading market regulation division, where she put in an "oversight" regime that was insufficient to the task.

It also means that filling other slots is going to be exceedingly difficult because the pool of people from whom Obama and Geithner can fill Treasury positions is going to come from the same bunch of people responsible for the melt-down in the first place.

Morning lizards,

Boy yesterday was one f$%^'d up day for turn, and this has nothing to do with my 101k. First off my father passed away 19 years ago on that day so I was down from the start. Then just before quitting time HR tells me I'm being forced to lay off one of my guys by the 12'th, this has me really stressing. Finally when I get home and tell the turnwife my sad story she tells me she had to go pick up turnspawn at the county jail because he got picked up for a 502 the night before. I've learned life goes in cycles, you know peaks and valleys of happiness and contentment. My only hope is that this valley doesn't get any deeper.

President Barack Obama dislikes Britain, but he's keen to meet the Queen

This guy is really clueless?

That's because he see's her as his true British counterpart as he see's himself as "King" - not govt official.

They had a billboard in Seattle back in the late 60s, early 70s..."Will the last person leaving Seattle turn out the lights".

Only this time, the lights will be off due to the lack of power, but we'll still be here.

Still a good line, because Emanuel actually sent a dead fish to an enemy.

We must act now on Global Warming or society will break down and we're all gonna die.

We must pass the largest spending bill and budget in history now or society will break down and we're all gonna die.

We must install universal health care now or society will break down and we're all gonna die.

ANYONE ELSE NOTICING A PATTERN?

I mean, now playing on our fears over the economy to jam national social health care down our throat by claiming it's the only way to create jobs?

Doesn't The Queen look fantastic in that picture?

I understand that The Queen has graciously indicated that she would like to meet the new American Prsident - apart from LBJ she has met every one of them since she became Queen.

Sorry for your troubles. Whats a "502"?
As far as the layoff, make some calls 1st (to competitors) to see if you can at least open the door for whichever one you have to cut. They will be grateful

Insanity.

Yep - but don't worry: PB0 will copy our NuLab tax inventiveness assiduously.
He'll have to, to get some revenue.
