What if you tried to "occupy" your own home

I was thinking what an OWS movement would look like at home. Here’s what I came up with.

Like the rest of the 99% on a lazy Sunday afternoon, I was occupying my living room couch flipping between the NFL and NASCAR when “the man” (AKA Mzzzzz. Lex) came in and demanded that I leave the couch so that the Cheetos mess could be vacuumed up before it irreversibly turned the couch orange.

For a foolish minute I though about resisting. I can wait her out. Then I saw it - a near empty 32 ounce Power Aide bottle. With that raised eyebrow, I knew she knew too. I’d be leaving that couch for my own needs sooner or later – probably sooner.

This is the perfect time for compromise. So I got up and feigned like I was helping out. I grabbed the Cheetos bag, the Power Aide bottle, the bag Oreos, the plate that had the donuts on it, the M&Ms, and the Sunday sports section. I acted as if I were headed to the kitchen to put the mess up. Then, when out of reach and hopefully unnoticed, I broke for the basement and established a new command center for the Occupy Pulver Rd. resistance movement there.

Our movement is small but dedicated. We are the household 99%. Me, Lex jr., George the dog and Ty the pony are shutting things down here in protest of the 1% who controls all the money, buys all food, does all the laundry, shops, cleans the house, cooks, pays all the bills, and generally keeps things moving around here.

Our stupid and outrageous demands include:

Snuggies for everyone, Leopard Snuggies that is not one those common blue or pink models

A singing fish by the front door to impress our friends

A set of real lawn Jarts the heavy pointy kind banned by a namby pamby government

At least 3 flavors of ice cream in the frig at all times

And no holier than thou looks from “the man” when we watch The Simpsons

These are our demands! Well those and a new belt and a NASCAR hat and an unlimited allowance to buy whatever we want whenever we want it.

Those are our demands! Well those and moving school start time back to a reasonable hour, say 10, no wait, 10:30 and no more cutting the grass. That is so bourgeois, and new car. Did I say car? No. A truck. A Ford 150 with everything. Those are our demands!

Yeah, I know, this isn’t going to end well. Too bad city governments around the country don’t have the resolve of someone who actually has to make things work.

In its Sunday edition, the local fish wrap whined about Herman Cain’s smoking ad and called Herman’s smile “creepy.” Lex fired off this note giving them a taste of their own medicine:

Calling Herman Cain’s engaging and infectious smile “creepy” is straight up racism. There is no other explanation. Here you have the first real black man in either party who has held a steady private sector job and is leading the race for his party’s nomination in nationwide polls. And what is the JG’s response? Get out there and try to push the skilled and successful black man to the back of the bus. Round him up! Get him back on the plantation! You ought to ashamed of yourselves.

A third party means four more years

Uh oh, there is talk of a third party run. Names being dropped include Sarah Palin, Ron Paul, Donald trump, perpetual third party candidate Ralph Nader and even Shrillda Beast Clinton. ASIDE: Do you suppose the Clintons are breathing a sigh of relief that the Republicans killed the P-BO’s stimulus bill that nit wit VP Slow Joe claimed would stop rapist? I’m just saying, a prime target of any anti rape bill, would have to include Billbo himself wouldn’t it? And yet, it’s Monica who is in hiding. Odd huh?

OK back on point, which was?…oh yeah, a third party. Unless there is a third and fourth party run that offsets a Palin with a Shrilldabeast, any third party endeavor is likely to hand the P-BO a second term. So no matter how little you like the Republican nominee or how much you love the third party candidate, don’t take the bait. There is nothing the P-BO would like more than to have Ron Paul and/or Sarah Palin on the ballot in FL, OH, MI and PA.

Now on the other side, if the Shrillda wants to run, I encourage her to do so. If some leftist in a Che t-shirt and wearing V for Vendetta mask wants to represent the OWS movement in a presidential run, you go guy! Oooops, only gender neutral references allowed in the OWS movement, you go person!

If there are 4 or even 5 candidates that so fracture the vote that the whole thing is thrown into the House of Representatives, you’d think the Republican candidate would win easily. Not so fast. Don’t underestimate Boehner’s ability to get the Republicans to settle for the VP slot and let the P-BO maintain the Oval Office. He’d come out and bill it as a great victory. After all, things are so screwed up why would we want a Republican getting the blame when things go inevitably bad? You don’t think that’s possible? Study the picture at the top of the post just under and think again. Remember, this is the guy who can’t even cut off funding to NPR.

Then there’s this from the YGBFSM file:

The Washington, D.C. Office of Human Rights confirmed that it is investigating allegations that Catholic University violated the human rights of Muslim students by not allowing them to form a Muslim student group and by not providing them rooms without Christian symbols for their daily prayers.

In an uncharacteristically blunt statement, the pope said:

Go f^%k yourself. Get the hell out and don’t come back you ungrateful, trapped in the 12th century, bunch of creepy d-bags. To hasten your exit, I’m sending over a boat load of crucifixes that I have personally blessed and am ordering one be affixed to each and every wall on university property.  I am also ordering that enough crosses be constructed so that at least one can seen from every square inch of university grounds.  Had I known it was this easy to run your terrorist sympathizing and apparently vampire like asses off campus, I'd have directed this action years ago.

OWS riots & the Super Committee

Yeah, sure, like anyone with a brain couldn’t see this coming. There were riots in Oakland, CA over the weekend when police cleared the 99% from their occupy camp site. Really, after you let them stay the first night, did anyone in city government really expect that they would have a George Bush moment, declare “Mission Accomplished” and fly off the aircraft carrier on their own?

Now what do suppose is going to happen in other cities being occupied by the 99%? Actually, when you look at the video, it’s pretty funny how easy it was for the 1% to run the 99% off, don’t you think? But NYC is being occupied and the Nanny Mayor there is saying stay as long as you like. How’s that working out for you Mike?

But the really, really hilarious part of all of this is that it’s Demo-Dope mayors being the villains here. Oakland was the city where mayor Moonbeam Jerry Brown was in charge. Now his successor twice removed, some chick named Jean Quan, is in deep doo doo for trying to restore order in the city. So the Demo-Dope mayors in cities like Atlanta, NYC, hell even Ft. Wayne are faced with a true dilemma, act like Demo-Dopes and allow protestors to crap on police cars or act like republicans and enforce the law. Damn, what to do?

The big equalizer in all of this will be winter. Let’s see how many of these heroes want to stay out occupying when it’s 32 degrees and raining. Just watching it from a distance, I see a good many fair weather soldiers in the crowd.

And there is further proof that the P-BO is a clueless jerk. On the Leno show he lumped the Tea party in with the OWS losers. Oh, yeah, sure now I remember that picture of granny defecating on a police car. I remember grandpa shouting eff the USA. Yeah sure they are exactly alike. What a clueless buffoon.

Now on to the Super Committee. Did anyone think that a committee that included Cambodian war hero Francois Kerry would be able to get past the endless stories about his Cambodian exploits to actually get their work done?

This guy is exactly what is wrong with congress and DC in general. Here’s a lying sack of crap sitting on a committee that is supposed to save the country from ruin. There probably aren’t a dozen people in the entire body that I’d trust with that endeavor. And think about it, the 535 turn their responsibility to govern over to a chosen dozen. I cannot see me supporting that proposition even if I were chosen as one of the dozen.

Then to make matter worse, they install triggers that are automatically pulled if the committee can’t get past another fake war story from Francois about how he single handedly pulled Kadaffy from a drain pipe, slapped him around, beat him in a rubber match of cribbage, drank him under the table after truffles and half a bottle of vintage Dom Perignon and woke up naked, face down in the desert with a hang over and Kadaffy’s dead body on top of him. Now, try to get that mental image out of your brain before lunch.

The whole problem with the DC crowd is captured in the photo above. The fix is in. They are birds of a feather. Only the most stalwart among them stand for the people anymore and they are far and few between.

If you doubt me on this ask yourself, how did you feel after 2010 election? Great, right? How do you feel now? After a sweeping victory, nothing much changed. The photo captures why. They are all buds. The Rep leadership is pretty much the same as the Demo-Dope leadership. The Dopes want to drive the car off a cliff at 100 mph and the Reps want to drive it off at 60 mph. Either way, we’re screwed.

I paid $120,000 for a worthless degree and it's all your fault and Pope embraces OWS only he doesn't

Another day, another way the P-BO plans to use your tax dollars to buy votes. Yesterday the P-BO was offering tax $ to “underwater” home owners. Today he’s offering tax $ to college kids to provide new no-cost benefits to graduates mired in college debt.

You don’t want to be mired in debt at graduation? Get a job and work your way through school. Or just get a job and not go to college. Also, instead of that impressive sheep skin in interpretive dance, get a degree in something that can be parlayed into a real three letter word a J-O-B.

And where on earth is the hue and cry against “big education?” Average college tuition has gone up several times the rate of inflation over the past several years. In recent years, consumer prices have risen less than 3 percent a year, while tuition at public colleges has risen by 8.8 percent and at private ones, 6.7 percent. Why aren’t the OWS crowd occupying the campus instead?

I read where one college student had acquired more than $120,000 in debt as a result of school loans. What in the hell are they teaching at that school? What were the bank managers making the loans thinking? What was the student thinking?

No one was thinking here. You’d think at real university the student would have wondered into a freshman econ class where he’d hear about something called a cost benefit ratio. You’d think a light would come on at about the $6,000 mark of accumulated debt for this numbskull. You’d think the bank manager might sit the kid down and say, “Look knowledge is good, but with a degree in ancient art and artifacts of the Powamba tribe of lower Siddar, you’re going to have trouble getting a real job. So no, we’re not lending you any more money. Go get a real job”

But none of that happens. The kid goes to a college where he apparently learns nothing of value and gets loans from a loan officer who graduated from the same university and is paying off his own $120,000 loan working for $50,000 a year as loan officer.

And just like the underwater crowd, everyone is bitching

There’s news a foot on Drudge and Beck’s website that the Vatican has called for a single monetary authority or some sort of world bank to rule over financial institutions that have become outdated and ineffective in dealing fairly with world monetary crises. Uh, don’t believe everything you hear. The paper that spawned all of this was released from something called the Justice and Peace department. Yeah, who knew? But hey, it’s the Vatican. If there is going to be such a department, you’d expect it to be at the Vatican, right?

Anyhoo, it’s some minor dept and doesn’t really speak for Rome or the Pope. But some leftist Fr. Flager wannbe dope named Fr. Tom Reese got hold of an advance copy and began peddling a line of BS that fit his own agenda. The church issued a statement reflecting as much but only in nicer terms:

"It is in this spirit of discernment that the Holy See, with the note of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, wishes to make a contribution which might be useful to the deliberations of the G-20 meeting”.

Bishop Toso explained that the aim of the note is “suggest possible paths to follow, in line with the most recent social Magisterium, for the implementation of financial and monetary policies…”

The Church does not wish to enter into the technical issues behind the current economic crisis, but remains within the ambit of her religious and ethical functions…

Some smart guy named Thomas Peters points out:

I have nothing to immediately add to that, because the very authors of the document make clear how it should be evaluated: namely, as a “contribution” (as opposed to a mandate), as a “possible path” (as opposed to a moral proscription), in line with the Magisterium’s social teaching (as opposed to introducing a new teaching), without getting into the technical issues (because the Church is an expert in humanity, not economics) while fully staying within the Church’s religious and ethical functions.

Liberal Catholics routinely (and in this case) try to read the Church’s social teaching as dogmatic while choosing to view the Church’s moral and religious teaching as optional. In fact, the Church herself is always careful to make clear that her moral and religious teaching is dogmatic and binding while her social teaching –and particularly her economic teaching– is exhortative and prudential.

And there you have it.  It's just more lib BS designed to get you to think that the entire world is off its rocker and get you to add another 3 ft to the 12 ft fence around your compound.

Put the man who can't do anything in charge of everything

Well another day another 10 things the P-BO is doing to be concerned about.

“We can’t wait” is the mantra for the P-BO. Under that clever cloak, the P-BO has taken it upon himself to restructure loans for “underwater houses.’ Underwater is a euphemism for bad investment. If you agreed to make payments on a $200,000 home, then America elects a know nothing president and the value of your home plummets to $150,000 you are said to be “underwater.”

I don’t really understand it. Nothing about the home itself has changed. You just cannot sell it at a price equal to or higher than what you bought it for. Car owners have been dealing with this problem since the beginning of time.

Now some unfeeling Rep might say, “Hey, hang in there. These things go in cycles. The market will be back.” What a heartless bunch of BS. “We can’t wait” for the market to adjust. We can’t be expected to meet our commitments to the bank and our family. We need the government to step in NOW and restructure our loan.

So the P-BO comes up with this gem:

“The barrier will be lifted that prohibits responsible homeowners from refinancing if their home values have fallen so low that what they owe on their mortgage is 25 percent higher than the current value of their home.”

So what does “refinancing” mean here? Does the bank forgive 25% of the loan? Or does the payment go from $675 to $650? Oh and here’s a good one. The refinancing is for homes financed through the bankrupt Freddy and Fannie. Great.

How does refinancing make your home worth more? If I’m financing $200,000 at 6% for home worth $150,000, how does financing the same $200,000 at 3% magically make the home worth another $50,000? It seems to be pretty much smoke and mirrors to me.

The bottom line here is the P-BO buying votes with your money.

But don’t worry if your interested in finding out about the “executive” changes you could use the Freedom of Information Act to request all of the relevant documents from the P-BO. But if the P-BO’s justice department has its way, the P-BO could just use his common practice of lying and tell you the papers did not exist. Yeah, really.

Eric the wad Holder’s Justice Dept. wants to make the P-BO’s lying legal. The wad has proposed a revision to Freedom of Information Act rules that would allow federal agencies to lie to citizens and reporters seeking certain records, telling them the records don’t exist.

So when the congress goes to the wad and says, “We want all the documents on the Fast and Furious operation.” The wad can say, “Fast and Furious? Hmmm. That’s a movie, right? We don’t have any papers on that, and no such operation ever existed. Thank you for your inquiry.”

Then there’s bit of scariness.  Sec. of Ed Arne Duncan said:

 “I think kids should be in school 365 days a year. Now, I’m a little hard-lined there, not everyone agrees with me. In all seriousness, particularly in disadvantaged communities, we know that summer reading loss is a huge problem, and so where children don’t have access to museums and libraries during the summer, having them be in school in those months to continue learning, that’s the right thing to do.”

What this really is, is year round government run day care. “Continue learning?” Arne the word “continue” implies that something has occurred and is ongoing. The schools you are talking about are utter failures. What “learning” will continue? Indoctrination of kids under SEIU teacher union thugs. The WI type learning where teachers walk off the job because they are asked to pay some bit of their own healthcare and retirement?

This war can still be lost

As usual there are about a 1,000 things the P-BO is screwing up simultaneously, so where to begin? Let’s get out of Iraq by Christmas. Many are under the illusion that this is the P-BO fulfilling a campaign promise. Wrong. That was get out of Iraq in a year. After the coronation, the P-BO reverted to President Bush’s policy. And we’d still be in Iraq after this year and for who knows how long, if this bunch of inept doofuses could have negotiated a SOFA agreement. They couldn’t. So the next best face saving move is to leave altogether. Sort of like the old routine, “You’re FIRED!” “OH yeah? You can’t fire me, because I quit!”

Scrawny Harry about summed this move up when he revised his “this war is lost” comment to “we can still lose this war.” Way to go Barry. You’re doing a heck of a job.

The big problem here is not Iraq. It’s the neighborhood. Syria and Iran need to be watched. I’d be much happier if we had a toe hold in the area.

But welcome home GI Joe’s and Jane’s. Have a great Christmas. But I wouldn’t unpack your sea bag right away. Something tells me you’re going to be headed back soon.

Much to the slowest of all Joe’s dismay, it turns out the Demo-Dopes support rape and robbery. Senate Demo-Dopes couldn’t get the P-BO’s budget stimulus through the senate on Fri. Yes after lambasting the Reps as soft on crime for not passing the P-BO’s crime fighting stimulus, Slow Joe shovel ready Biden is now faced with explaining why senate Demo-Dopes wouldn’t pass the bill.

And for anyone who thinks this page occasionally crosses the line when referring J-O-B-S is three letter word Biden, dig this:

Dagen McDowell, appearing on a Fox News panel with Neil Cavuto and several other guests, said she took issue with the “scare tactics” the White House has been employing to get the bill passed.

“They’re lecturing and hectoring,” McDowell said. “President Obama said in July, and I quote, ‘part of the problem with the political process is folks are rewarded for saying irresponsible things to win elections or obtain short-term political gain’ — and then you’ve got Numb Nuts out on the campaign trail talking like, he’s talking out of his backside.”

Of course she’s in big trouble for stating the obvious truth.

Meanwhile over in the NFL, Merril Hoge is in deep, deep, deep depression. Tim Tebow had the most unlikely – miraculous? - of come backs in NFL history covering a 15 point deficit in just three minutes. Tebow's post game interview, which started with a shout out to Tebow’s giver of life and Savior, the Lord, Jesus Christ and ended with a God bless, has the “separation of church and NFL” crowd going nuts. Expect a court challenge on network interviews of Tebow by week’s end.

Credit Lex with Kadaffy's demise

Can the P-BO claim victory for killing another worthless scum bag? No. Remember when this whole thing started? The P-BO explained at great lengths that killing Moomarr Kadaffy was not an objective of the operation. As I recall, the operation was initiated to give the rebel forces some operating room from Kadaffy’s armored forces and air power. So at best, killing Kadaffy was kind of collateral damage that the P-BO will eventually have to go to the UN and apologize for.

Lex deserves more credit than the P-BO. On 8/22/11 Lex posted this:

As you recall Lex supported the NATO action in Libya. The only problem I had was the namby pamby BS from the Commander in Chief who clearly said he was interested in government reform not the killing of Kaddaffyduck. The entire mission should have revolved around killing that murdering bastard, his worthless off spring and the Lockerbie bomber.

This clearly was not the first post that Lex had called for the killing of Kadaffy. I said kill the bastard from the very beginning. So yeah, Lex deserves more credit than the P-BO. At least Lex had a clearly stated mission and end state. Now if the P-BO had any sense he’d use the moment to quietly demand the Lockerbie bomber, al Megrahi. First one to hand him over gets good guns some cash and the inside track on forming a new Libyan government.

Last thing on this for today, where in the world are the war protesters?

Then there’s this from the “you can't make this $h!t up if you try” file, ABC reports:

With the approval of the Obama administration, an electric car company that received a $529 million federal government loan guarantee is assembling its first line of cars in Finland, saying it could not find a facility in the United States capable of doing the work.

Vice President (Slowest of all) Joseph (shovel ready) Biden heralded the Energy Department’s $529 million loan to the start-up electric car company called Fisker as a bright new path to thousands of American manufacturing jobs. But two years after the loan was announced, the job of assembling the flashy electric Fisker Karma sports car has been outsourced to Finland.

Way to go Joe. You’re doing a heck of a job. But wait, it gets better. The Karma costs $97,000 a copy. Now that’s what I call a practical, affordable, clean car the 99% on OWS can embrace. There is absolutely nothing bourgeois about a $97,000 electric car with start up capital provided by the US tax payer through the P-BO administration. It’s just like the Libyan war. What war?

But it gets even better - or worse depending. Guess who has major share holder’s interest in Fisker? No not the collective OWS conglomerate. AlGore.

And yes, if it’s possible, it gets even better still. Forbes reports:

The Fisker Karma electric car, developed mainly with your tax money so that a bunch of rich VC’s (venture capitalists) wouldn’t have to risk any real money, has rolled out with an nominal EPA MPGe of 52.

Not bad? Unfortunately, it’s a sham. This figure is calculated using the grossly flawed EPA process that substantially underestimates the amount of fossil fuels required to power the electric car…

As I calculated in my earlier Forbes article, one needs to multiply the EPA MPGe by .365 to get a number that truly compares fossil fuel use of an electric car with a traditional gasoline engine car on an apples to apples basis. In the case of the Fisker Karma, we get a true MPGe of 19. This makes it worse than even the city rating of a Ford Explorer SUV.

Fisker is just more evidence of your federal government hard at work.

Dumb, dumber, dumbest

Wow! This has to be a post about dumbest things ever said.

First, Scrawny Harry this war is lost Reid opened his sewer trap and this gem came spilling forth:

"It's very clear that private-sector jobs have been doing just fine; it's the public-sector jobs where we've lost huge numbers, and that's what this legislation is all about."

Thanks NV. You guys are doing a heck of a job. Nearly three million people and this is the best you can do? After comments about, pomegranates, cowboy poetry and bike paths, I believe this old fool is in the early stages of dementia. That or he’s just an old fool.

Unemployment is at 9.1%. In spite of Demo-Dope policies leading to the destruction of 1.6 million private sector jobs so far, according to the scrawniest Harry, the private-sector is doing just fine. I feel better already Harry. Thanks.

Under the P-BO’s moronic leadership, the public sector has shed about 900,000 jobs that included about 300,000 part time hires for the census. That’s a good start to my way of thinking. But really Harry, is 1.6 million a bigger number than 600,000?

When Harry stumbles into the truth by saying public-sector employment is what the P-BO’s “jobs bill” is all about, he inadvertently lets the cat out of the bag. The P-BO’s “pass this bill” BS is a ploy to add more public-sector union thug can never be fired no matter how incompetent jobs. That is exactly what we do not need.

But wait it gets dumber. The P-BO let this bit of jaw dropping dunderheadedness loose as well:

I guarantee it’s going to be a close election because the economy is not where it wants to be and even though I believe all the choices we’ve made have been the right ones, we’re still going through difficult circumstances.

All the choices we’ve made have been the right ones? Uh HELLO! Wake up! All the choices you’ve made have been the right ones, really? One word – Solyndra? OK, two – deficit. You tripled it. OK, three –unemployment. 9.34% average unemployment on your watch.

In other unbelievably stupid comments, Wile E Coyote said he wouldn’t change a thing in pursuit of the roadrunner. “All the choices I’ve made have been the right ones,” he insisted. He went on to say that the 534 million dollars he has invested in the Acme Company so far has been money well spent, particularly the rocket assisted roller skates.

Jumping on the P-BO’s bandwagon, the Boston Red Sox front office issued a statement today stating that trading Babe Ruth to the Yankees was “the best deal the club ever made.”

But when you want really stupid, where do you turn? That’s right the Slowest of all Joes. Joe J-O-B-S is a three letter word, shovel ready Biden. Foregoing plagiarism in stops at Flint MI and Philthydelphia PA this week, the slowest one relied on his own Homer Simpson like brain when he told crowds that rape and robbery would go up as a result of Republicans not passing the P-BO’s public-sector jobs bill.

He’s probably right. Both cities are run by Demo-Dopes. Criminals are a key constituency of the Demo-Dopes. So yeah, they want crime to go up. Why else would they ban guns and let criminals off and out of jail on the flimsiest of excuses?

And please Joe, if crime is such a worry in these cities, explain why the Demo-Dope mayors don’t cut the left handed, little people’s, gay, lesbian and transgendered task force for equal opportunity in the ice cream industry task force and hire more cops? If you’re so worried, why didn’t you take a few hundred million you just peed down the Solyndra sink hole and buy more cops? If you’re so worried about rape and robbery, why do you oppose citizens arming themselves with hand guns for protection? And given all of that, why should people in MT be expected to pay for police protection in Flint and Philthy when they refuse to do it for themselves?

On second thought, next to Joe Biden, Homer Simpson looks like civil engineer Kim Ung-Yong. Yeah, I’d never heard of him either. I Googled geniuses. Kim was at the top of the list with an IQ of 210. He was born March 8, 1962 is a Korean former child prodigy. Kim was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records under "Highest IQ"; the book estimated the boy's score at about 210. Who knew?  Where else do you get this kind of stuff?

It's the libs who don't trust, won't use science

There is a common misperception among the lemmings in the MSM and dunderheaded libs, (Yeah, sure as if there were any other kind) that conservatives are the anti science crowd. Like thinking government taxing and spending is a better solution than private investment and capitalism and as usual, they have gotten it exactly backward.

The claim about conservatives being anti science generally comes from two issues. First is global warming or cooling depending on the decade, or “climate change” for those too lazy to keep track of which direction the global thermometer is headed in any particular decade. The smug know- it-all AlGore types insist that the debate is over. The science is settled. They are even foolish enough to call people who might disagree “flat Earthers” when ironically it was probably the flat Earther’s who were the first ones to use the phrase, “the debate is over.”

And really given all of the lies, cover ups, bogus modeling, and just plain incompetence associated with climate warming/cooling/change crowd, should anyone be claiming the debate is over? You would make such a claim only if you were so unsure of yourself that you didn’t want to debate. You know, if I was 100% sure about something, I be looking to debate anyone and everyone. AlGore, the ugly, pasty, over weight face of this charade, won’t debate anyone on the subject he’s supposedly 100% sure about. Now certainly not sure enough about it that he’s willing to make a single life style sacrifice himself you understand. Although, he is willing to buy carbon off sets– from himself - to atone for his own corrupt life style that he claims is destroying the planet. Every time he hops a private jet, he takes $10 out of his right pocket and puts it into his left. And it’s always the same $10 bill.

Conservatives are pro science on this issue. They are willing to find the flaws in the models and re-run the tests. They are willing to move the data collection stations off of air port tarmacs and away from air conditioner discharge units and see what the accurate data says. They are willing to debate what a one degree change in the Earth’s temperature over 100 years really means and what, if anything, should be done about it. It’s the anti science left who just wants to fall back on the old “the debate is over” so let’s destroy the American economy, drive electric car and screw in environmentally unsafe light bulbs across the globe.

The point is that debate in real science is never over.

The next issue that the oh so smart libs mock conservatives about with regard to science is religion. The left it seems fancy themselves people science rather than “people of faith.” Well consider this:

20,880,468,000,000,000,000,000 to one. That is the chance that anyone of us has of being here. That number equals 23 (the number of human chromosomes) to the 23rd power.

584,088,921 that is the number of miles the Earth travels around the sun each year on an elliptical course that combined with

A 93 million mile average radius from the sun and

A 67,108 MPH orbital speed and

an axis tilt of 23.5 degrees gives us our year and our seasons

Now 7,917.5 miles is the Earth’s diameter. That figure combined with a rotational speed of a 1,070 MPH gives us our night and day.

Ponder those numbers for a minute…..

Time’s up. I submit that, given the numbers and the vastness of the universe, that if even one of those numbers were off by even the smallest fraction, life on Earth would be impossible. In my mind, it takes much more “faith” to believe that this whole thing occurred by happenstance than by design. The chances of this happening by accident is about the same as dropping a package of uncooked spaghetti on the floor and it magically forming all 26 letters of the alphabet in order.

Some observations

Dad never wore a seat belt. He smoked unfiltered Chesterfields until he developed lung cancer. He drank alcohol. For most of his life, he ate all of the nasty things that Nanny Mayor Bloomberg and Moochelle Obama are trying to ban.  He was a house painter and would regale us with stories of how he used to mix the lead into oil based paint with his bare hands. He survived the global cooling scare of the 70’s, asbestoses, leaded gas, red dye #5, eggs, white bread, salt, processed foods, red meat, FDR’s great depression, WWII, a nasty fall from a ladder, several automobile accidents and all of the day to day trials of raising 6 kids to live to the ripe old age of 87 years. It was probably global warming or climate change that got him in the end, that or old age.

Not only is it against the law in many states to drive without a seatbelt, the auto/insurance industry make it nearly impossible to do so. The car will flash lights, beep, buzz, hector and warn the driver with a series of warnings so annoying that it is just easier the buckle the belt behind you before starting the car.

With the exception of really hip Demo-Dope donors like Sean bung plug Penn, smoking is more reviled in today’s society than drug use or soft child pornography of the kind Abercrombie and Fitch use to hawk their wares. In fact it in today’s world, you are probably better off drinking to such excess that you end up throwing up on the host’s couch than dare light up a cigarette in the house.

Lead paint has been totally banned. That would have been good for dad’s business because he said the new paints don’t last nearly as long and the color is different. Besides, as he used to say, you’re not supposed to eat the paint.

I suppose that ethanol is today’s equivalent of the unleaded gas of the mid 70s. The difference is that “scientist” claimed the lead in gas was killing you while today’s “scientist” claim that gasoline is killing the planet. Even NASCAR has jumped on the green band wagon using ethanol on race day, which is about right. They change their engines (or as they say motor) every 500 miles, which is what you’ll be doing if you run ethanol in your car.

Some other things: Dad never e-nailed, texted, facebooked, or tweeted anyone. Strangely enough he actually enjoyed talking to people and writing letters.

How could dad have lived 87 years? By today’s standards, he should have been dead by the time he was 20. A nation of wimps? NO! A nation led by wimps.

Knowing so little, the P-BO is with 99% of the protesters

The P-BO has embraced the 99%. The 99% would be those of us who have at least three fingers or toes at the end of at least one of our feet or hands. Seriously, can you think of anything else that 99% of any group has in common? OK, well yeah, 99% of "the 99%" are morons.  OK you win.

I think the P-BO is having a bit of community organizer envy. Having spent most of his community organizing days ordering pizza for the midnight basketball league in Chicago, like everything in his life, the P-BO was pretty much lazy and below average at his one true calling, organizing a community. Now this mob of misfits shows up and the P-BO must be thinking to himself – damn, now that’s community organizing.

This guy is the face and intellectual driving force behind the movement. This is the movement’s anthem.  Given this kind of exposure, some in the media are surprised that the P-BO has taken the movement under his threadlike wing. Who is SURPRISED that the P-BO supports a group whose anthem is “F*&K the USA?” How far is it from the P-BO’s Rev? G-D-ing the USA to these freaks F-ing the USA? Not too terribly far in my mind. And what do the two have in common? What they have in common is stated in the post under – the P-BO.

Then there are lib brainiacs Jeneanne Gawdawfullo and Sean anyone seen the bung plug for my row boat Penn battling with the guy in the first video for intellectual supremacy in the lib movement. Penn dropped this line on some CNN show few watch:

“What I call the ‘Get the N-word out of the White House party,’ the Tea Party”

Read more:

You know Sean, if by N-word, you mean nit wit, numbskull, national disgrace, ne’er-do-well, nappy headed dope, knot head, know nothing, you’re probably right. I’m with the 99% that believe that N-word should be removed from the WH.

But right now, I’m with the 99% that think that I should have another cup of coffee and an apple fritter.

They protest "the man" by supporting "the man"

There is something odd going on. The Cincinnati Bengals being 3-2, five games into the season for sure, but something in addition to that. There are these occupy this and that demonstrations going on all over the country. One is supposed to take place in Ft. Wayne this Sat. I may go downtown with my rainbow wig and John 3:16 sign; or some other sign:
I support clean liquid hydrocarbon fuels (AKA petroleum)
If I want it, someone else should pay for it!
If I need it, I should be allowed to take it!
If we kill the rich, who will pay my tuition?
Take half of everything the rich have!  Make 'em get a divorce!
Some damned rich guy just offered me a job!
Screw the rich, besides creating jobs, funding charity, paying 47 times their fair share of income tax, creating the greatest country on Earth, what have they ever done?

What started supposedly as a lib counter to the Tea Party has pretty much devolved into an unsanitary orgy of misfit leftists protesting everything from the scientific equation for how much filth can be piled onto an acre of ground to the downgrade of Pluto from full fledged planet to mere dwarf planet. Hey is that politically correct? Shouldn’t it be “little planet?”

Anyway, what holds all of these misfits protesting anything and everything together? The P-BO that’s what. Yes, these misfit protesters are protesting against “the man” by supporting “the man” - our own misfit president, who historians will no doubt down grade to a dwarf president some time in the future.

They are against Wall St. corporations but for the P-BO who took over two massive Corps himself, GM and Chrysler. They are against the banks but support the P-BO who as Sen. B-HO supported the government bail out known as TARP. They are against the war(s) but for the P-BO who continues the old ones and starts new ones. They are against G’itmo but for the P-BO who promised to close it but hasn’t and won’t. They are for clean water but refuse to use it to wash or clean their clothes. They demand we respect the environment then proceed to create a toxic waste heap in the middle of Manhattan. Weird huh?

Yes it is, but remember that consistency is the hobgoblin of people who are not hypocrites like libs in general and the P-BO, Slowest Joe shovel ready Biden, Grand Fran Nan Pelooser who once famously called the Tea Party a Nazi Astroturf movement in particular. It makes perfect sense for these morons to “rage against the man” while supporting “the man’s” reelection efforts. After all, if you want hope and change, you keep voting for the same guy, right?

Pay attention!

It all happening right before our very eyes. A governor of one of the states seriously proposes the suspension of elections. Bev no really I’m not a brain dead idiot Perdue Governor of NC advocated for the suspension of election. Sedition? No. She’s a Demo-Dope so she can pretty much do and say anything she wants without so much as a, Huh?, from the MSM.

Jesse Jackson jr. (I guess the jr. would make him Hymieville instead of Hymietown) has the added advantage of being black. Not only can he say anything he wants without being challenged, the MSM will actually try to make him appear to be smart when he says stupid things. So when he calls for the P-BO to use “extra constitutional means” to achieve an end, it’s not sedition. Hey, idiot! You took an oath to support and defend the constitution. Oh, that’s funny, an oath from a lying sack of crap Demo-Dope. No doubt he mouthed those words with all of the sincerity of a pedophile saying, “Hey kid, you want some candy?” Sadly jr. is just playing off the P-BO’s own comment about “using ‘administrative means’ to go around congress” to pursue his goals.

Then there’s the story of the really, really small Billy Maher saying that someone ought to throw a brick through Rupert Murdoch’s window. Nice. Nothing like calling for violence against those who might have a different view than your own. Now if someone ever threatened tiny Billy, you can bet he’d be pressing charges in a second. He’s a spineless punk.

Then you have Soros funded rent-a-mobs “occupying” several key cities whining about something. No one can really put their finger on what these miscreants really want. Probably nothing, really. They just want to be out protesting.

Then you have union thugs joining the rent-a-mob. Notice how they are always billed as “hard working” in MSM? But how many days do you get off to protest? We saw them demonstrating in WI and now in major US cities. I don’t think they can be all that “hard working” if they don’t have to go to work.

Then add into the mix a lying, incompetent and worthless Attorney General looking out for “his people” and you’ve got trouble.

OK class pull out your math books. Let’s do some addition.

One Demo-Dope governor calls for suspending elections +

One Demo-Dope Congressman calls for the use of “extra constitutional” means to get what he wants +

Little – minuscule really - Billy Maher calls for throwing bricks through people’s windows +

Established rent-a-mobs “occupy” key US cities +

Union thugs are joining the rent-a-mob +

A lying, incompetent and worthless Attorney General =

Some sort of validation of one or more Lex’s conspiracy theories.

You want to know what really, really, really pees me off though? I don’t care. I’m telling you anyway. I’m sick of hearing how smart all these people supposedly are. The P-BO and Eric the wad Holder are soooooooo smart, sooooooo intelligent, playing chess while everyone else plays checkers. Look at the mess these geniuses have created. If these guys are the smart ones, I’m happy to be the dumb@$$ in the room.

Some spring cleaning for the Islamo-Terror-Fascists

Hey how about that Arab Spring? It’s all holding hands and singing Kumbaya now that Mubarak’s in the stock, right? Well not exactly. The military is still in charge and elections are no where near. Oh, yeah, and the radical Islamo-Terror-Fascists are killing the Coptic Christians.

Well as everyone knows, what better time to do a bit pruning than in the spring? Right? So the ITF are just pruning away those pesky Christians who are under the illusion that Muslims are interested in coexisting with anyone else.

But you know who I feel sorry for? Yeah, sure the Coptic Christians being run over by Egyptian military vehicles that we’re paying for, but also all of those obnoxious, self- important rubes who think that they have the inside track on sensitivity and tolerance because they put a stupid bumper sticker on their car.

Here’s the challenge I have for every one of them. Go live in the Middle East for a year. I can pretty much guarantee that after a year in Egypt or just about anywhere else in the Middle East, the coexist lame brains would be scrapping that idiotic piece of vinyl off the back bumper of their Prius or Volvo within the first 30 minutes of their return.

Here’s a simple truth. You cannot coexist with someone who wants to kill you. You cannot coexist in a cage with a hungry lion. No matter how forcibly to assert your intention not cause the lion any harm, sooner or later the lion will kill you and eat you.

Now if you enter the cage with a gun, you might as well kill the lion at the first opportunity, because the end result will be that one of the two of you are going to be dead at the hands of the other. Coexisting is not an option.

Now if you’re the P-BO offering advice to man in the cage with a lion, you’d tell the man to cut off one of his legs and feed it to the lion. After all the lion has to eat too. Then after the lion finishes off the leg, the P-BO tells the man to cut off one his arms. After all, the man has two. And since the lion means the man no harm, he really doesn’t need two arms. Then when the lion finally kills the man and devourers him, the P-BO shrugs and laments that the man pushed the lion too far by trying to occupying the far corner of the cage.

Israel is the man in the cage with the lion.

Janeane Gawdawfullo

While watching the debate last night, I recalled this remark from lib super hyper genius Janeanne Gawdawfullo:

"Herman Cain is probably well liked by some of the Republicans because it hides the racist elements of the Republican Party.”

That reminded me of another great lib thinker, Dean Wormer of Faber College, where “Knowledge is Good,” from the movie Animal House. When Wormer places Delta House on probation, he’s reminded that they are already on probation. He then places them on “double secret probation.”

So yeah, we’re not only racists, we’re double secret racists, because we support a black guy. No, it doesn’t make sense to people with brains, but no one in Hollywood, public sector unions or the Demo-Dope Party are encumbered by rational thought so it all makes perfect sense. Sort of like telling the guy in the cage with the hungry lion to “coexist” by cutting off one his legs to feed to the lion.

Oh and the debate, Romney, Cain and Gingrich just as predicted.

Religious questions are OK, just don't ask the P-BO about Rev? Wright

There is a debate tonight supposedly dedicated to economics. Wanna bet the first question is about a brain dead preacher? No not the right Rev? Jerry Wright. That’s the P-BO’s boy so he’s off limits. Besides, is it really that big of deal when you and your family sit in the pew of a church for TWENTY YEARS where the Rev? damns America? No not really.

Some Perry acolyte has called Mormonism a cult. Now there is a real religious crime MSM lemmings can sink their teeth into. Even though the guy qualified the whole thing with a “theological definition of cult” that is. Which I guess is different from the type of crazy cult that would erect Styrofoam Roman pillars for its god and endlessly chant “Yes we can” while riding the economic equivalent of the Hale Bop comet of their chosen one to the country’s ruin.

Yes I know. That is a beautiful metaphor and just one more reason why I am the leading blogger within a couple of blocks of my compound.

What was I writing about? Oh yeah, the economic debate that will be about religion for at least 15 minutes tonight. OK, I have known quite a few Mormons in my time. With the exception of one who is a creepy, philandering, lying, hypocrite lib, who left the LDS because he could not live by its tenants, all have been fine up standing CHRISTIANS.

Yeah, that’s right CHRISTIANS. They believe that Jesus Christ was the living son of God and the only way to God is through his only Son.

Hey wait a minute. That sounds an awful lot like Christianity. Yeah, it is. It gets a bit tricky when the Mormon once accepted practice of polygamy, which ended in 1890, and the founder of the LDS Joseph Smith are introduced. Some believe that Mormons worship Smith. Smith is no more a god to Mormons than John the Baptist is to Catholics.

So what’s the big deal? The Republican front runner is a Mormon. That’s the big deal for the MSM. So here’s the opportunity for the MSM to rip the Republican front runner on a subject that they totally ignored in the last cycle. Now when you stop to think about it, the MSM writing about a particular candidate’s religious beliefs would be sort of like cooking host Rachael Ray talking about the flaws of blitzing a couple of linebackers while running a cover two defense in the NFL. She probably doesn’t know a thing about it.

But when has not knowing what you’re talking about ever stopped the MSM? Dan Rather anyone? Besides, this is just too juicy to pass up. Expect Herman Cain to knock it out of the ball park. Expect Newt to be the one to turn the table on the questioner as in, why absolutely no interest in the P-BO’s race baiting, anti Semite preacher in the last cycle but questions about Mormonism now? And if you want to take it one step further, why aren’t you asking the Senate majority leader Scrawny Harry this war is lost Reid these questions? He’s Mormon.

Winners tonight will be Herman, Mitt and Newt. For Cain and Romney this is right in their wheel house. Don’t get the “I’ve run a business before” line in the drinking game tonight.  Romney and Cain will be using it like a club on the other candidates at every opportunity. You’ll be passed out in the corner in 30 minutes. Newt will be a winner because he will be the smartest guy in the room.

Our problem is obvious

How can it be explained? “It” being the daily plethora of crap that rolls down us. Sloyndra: After flushing $535 million, can you believe that the P-BO administration was all set to float another loan to a solar panel company that makes ‘em for $6 and sells ‘em for $3? Even promising to put solar panels on top of the White House couldn’t create enough volume for Solyndra to make up a $3 loss on each panel. Then, having learned nothing, The P-BOS chucks another $700 million more dollars down the green energy sink hole AFTER SOLYNDRA FAILED. The money had to be spent before some dead line. Uh, no it didn’t. Give it back. But spend it they did.

Fast & Furious: When asked if he believed ATF agents have been accomplices to murder, AZ Sheriff Paul Babeu replied, “Absolutely.” He went on to put the blame where it belongs, Eric the wad holder: “Now, that’s one step away from Eric Holder. This is his Department of Justice and there are people who have lost their lives.” As it turns out the wad takes after his boss in more ways than just being another clean, articulate, light skinned black man capable of dropping the negro dialect when it suits him. He’s a lying dope as well. And don’t even think about call me a racist. That first line is a combination of Slow Joe Biden and Scrawny Harry Reid’s description of the P-BO. The last line is the indisputable truth. So far everyone associated with this monument to stupidity has been…drum roll please….promoted.

Occupy Wall St.: Labor unions have joined forces with uh…who? The freaks comprising the “Occupy Wall St” mob. What else do you call them? What’s their purpose? Cause trouble is the only clear goal that I can discern. So unions, never ones to miss a chance to take a day off to cause trouble, joined right in. The movement spreads as more and more people gather to protest. The latest group to join in to voice their concerns are the students from Jay College protesting, uh Idunno, but it beats going to class. Certain new organizations are calling this a movement. It’s not. It’s a collection of malcontents gathering to avoid work, school, going home or just to cause trouble. Senators trying to collapse BoA: RC Turdbin added an amendment to the Dodd Frank fiasco that restricted the amount banks could charge for processing debit card transactions. OK fine. In response BoA just slapped a monthly $5 fee on debit card users. Proof positive of Lex’s theory that rich people are rich for a reason. They are smarter and more talented than dopes like Turdbin. So Turdbin takes to the floor of the senate and tells people to dump BoA. Trudbin is like a neighbor who dumps his trash over the fence onto your yard and thinks that’s fine. But when you pick it up and pile it back up on his front door step, he’s outraged.

EuroZone disaster: One European economic domino after another is falling while pols there say Germany can continue to bail the entire continent out. Meanwhile the Demo-Dopes are trying emulate every failed European policy even as they watch the results of those failed policies play out on the streets of Europe every night.

All of this going on before our very eyes and ears fueled by a complicit news media. And nothing much changes. We sit and watch, as if we’re in a slow motion car wreck. Why? Here’s the answer. Some version of this quote came from Rush Limbaugh or someone from the Czech Republic:

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America .. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."

Our problem is as obvious as the problem of the man who walks around with his head firmly planted up his butt. Our problem is that 53% of us voted for a moron. 46% of the 53% probably voted for the moron because they want to continue to pay 0% income tax.

Am I optimistic for 2012? No. Having 46% of the vote voting their own economic interest is a pretty good running start even for a moron. A team of angles and arch angles arriving to fix this mess is the only “realistic scenario" I see for us getting out of this wreck. Us electing politicians who can figure it out, counter intuitively, would be the “miraculous scenario."

More demands from the occupiers

Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This demand can only be met by ending "Freetrade" by re-imposing trade tariffs on all imported goods entering the American market to level the playing field for domestic family farming and domestic manufacturing as most nations that are dumping cheap products onto the American market have radical wage and environmental regulation advantages. Another policy that must be instituted is raise the minimum wage to twenty dollars an hr.

Comment: $20 an hour! That’s an outrage! It should be $50 or $100 an hour. No, what the heck, make $10,000 an hour. We should all be millionaires with private jets like AlGore that we can fly around on while condemning people for using too much energy. Then we can all plant a tree to off-set the carbon emissions that would go toward meeting Demand Seven’s goal of replanting forests.

Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system. To do this all private insurers must be banned from the healthcare market as their only effect on the health of patients is to take money away from doctors, nurses and hospitals preventing them from doing their jobs and hand that money to wall st. investors.

Comment:  YGBSM!  P-BOcare?

Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.

Comment: As a slow witted uninspired white guy, I kind of like this one. Why shouldn’t I be making the same money for pushing a broom for 2 hours a day as the go getter who gets up early and wracks mind and body for 12-14 hours a day? But then again, $2 an hour ought to be “living” particularly when your list of what needs to “free” keeps growing, medical, education, housing, food etc. Throw in a movie once a week and 2 weeks vacation anywhere in the world and we could get rid of money all together.

Demand four: Free college education.

Comment: You get what you pay for. Free would be about right for most colleges and universities today.

Demand five: Begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end while at the same bringing the alternative energy economy up to energy demand.

Comment: Uh HELLO! WTF do think is all ready happening? 535 million to Solyndra? HELLO! Government Motors Chevy Volt? Hello!

Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now.

Comment: Is that what the P-BO and Slow Joe Biden call “shovel ready jobs?” We JUST flushed 800 BILLION down the “shovel ready” sink hole and have gotten what? We got jobs at the cost of over 200K per unit. Wouldn’t it be more effective to hire street sweepers at 50K a year? At least the streets would be clean.

Demand seven: One trillion dollars in ecological restoration planting forests, reestablishing wetlands and the natural flow of river systems and decommissioning of all of America's nuclear power plants.

Comment: Reestablishing wetlands and the natural flow of rivers? Does that mean dams would be coming down? Hoover dam gone? And the decommissioning of nuke power plants? Seems as if this is at cross purpose with Demand five. Wind turbines and Sloyndra solar panels for all. I hope you can read in the dark and walk to work and school.

Demand eight: Racial and gender equal rights amendment.

Comment: Hell yeah, just like the Muslims!

Demand nine: Open borders migration. Anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.

Comment: Well, if you take out the drug runners and human traffickers, that’s pretty much what we have right now. I’ll wait to see if ignoring them crops up somewhere in Demand 59 or 60.

Demand ten: Bring American elections up to international standards of a paper ballot precinct counted and recounted in front of an independent and party observers system.

Comment: No comment. Right on.

Demand eleven: Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. Debt forgiveness of sovereign debt, commercial loans, home mortgages, home equity loans, credit card debt, student loans and personal loans now! All debt must be stricken from the "Books." World Bank Loans to all Nations, Bank to Bank Debt and all Bonds and Margin Call Debt in the stock market including all Derivatives or Credit Default Swaps, all 65 trillion dollars of them must also be stricken from the "Books." And I don't mean debt that is in default, I mean all debt on the entire planet period.

Comment: I look at this debt like I look at Social Security. We won’t see a dime anyway. So yeah sure wipe it clean. You’re going to get stiffed anyway. So you might as well look as if you’re being magnanimous in the process.

Demand twelve: Outlaw all credit reporting agencies.

Comment: Given the other 52 demands, who will need them anyway?

Demand thirteen: Allow all workers to sign a ballot at any time during a union organizing campaign or at any time that represents their yeah or nay to having a union represent them in collective bargaining or to form a union.

Comment: Why in the hell would you even need a union if everyone was making a “living wage” and getting everything for free?

The big ending:  These demands will create so many jobs it will be completely impossible to fill them without an open borders policy.

Comment:  Ahh yes, of course.  I can see us now as we all stroll down from our mud huts at the commune wearing our burlap sack cloth and sandals made of river reeds to hold hands and sing Kumbaya around the community camp fire which happens to be the only source of heat and light.

It's all fun and games until the other side shoots back

The biggest ruse ever is going on with “Occupy Wall St.” movement. ASIDE: Why is it “occupiers” are bad when it refers to US troops or the Israelis but good when it refers to left wing dopes? No doubt these are P-BO’s useful idiots trying to deflect what a total incompetent SFB the P-BO is on the economy and anything else out side “organizing” a pick up basketball game. The occupiers’ mission is to deflect responsibility for the economy onto anyone but “The One.” In case you didn’t know it, the HuffPo lists six things the “occupiers” ought to demand. This incoherent argle bargle is what passes for “thought” on the left:

1. People over profit: An economic democracy is an economy that subordinates profit to people, not the other way around.

COMMENT: Subordinate profit to people, nice. Does that mean that “the people” get to come to work whenever they choose, get paid as much as they want, do only the tasks they want to do? If there are no PROFITS, how do the PEOPLE get paid?

2. Stakeholders over shareholders: An economic democracy is an economic system in which the voices, rights, and interests of all economic stakeholders -- including employees, stockholders, communities, ecosystems, other species and future generations -- are represented. Unlike our current economy where shareholders are given primacy, in an economic democracy no one stakeholder is granted a disproportionate degree of power and privilege.

Comment: Huh? Look at that first line again: An economic democracy is an economic system in which the voices, rights, and interests of all economic stakeholders -- including employees, stockholders, communities, ecosystems, other species and future generations -- are represented. What on God’s green Earth is NOT included in that definition? Under this arrangement Pepsi gets to decide how Coke does business. Future generations? Since when are Libs worried about future generations? They consistently want to wreck the economy for any future generation that might escape the abortion mill and death panels.

3. Better not bigger: In order to reorient the economy towards people and all stakeholders, we have to release it from the captivity of profit. In an economy geared towards GDP growth, the bottom line is the bottom line, and protecting it means suppressing wages, slashing payrolls, passing on costs to other people, other places, and other times. Most importantly, our economy has outgrown the physical limits of the planet, and saving civilization means stopping growth. A democratic economy should be a steady-state economy where existing wealth is distributed fairly, and where economic health is measured by true indicators of social welfare rather than the blunt and archaic tool of GDP. The Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy is a useful resource for steady-state solutions.

Comment: These are obviously people who have never been asked to pay for anything in their lives. They malign profits while griping about suppressed wages. Where do wages come from if not the profit of whatever enterprise we’re talking about? Oh yeah “distributing” the existing wealth. Outgrown the physical limits of the planet? The US government owns/controls over 80% of the land and resources in the US. We haven’t out grown anything. Steady state economy? With 1% growth in the GDP, that’s what we’ve got right now and things ain’t lookin’ so great. And just asking, wouldn’t a steady state economy necessarily mean suppressed and stagnant wages?

4. Main Street not Wall Street : The design of our financial system undermines true markets and productive community-based enterprises in favor of reckless speculation. It is designed to suck wealth away from communities and towards the corporate elite. A good blueprint here is the New Economy Working Group's report How to Liberate America from Wall Street Rule.

Comment: Hey I’m all for it. Sadly or gladly, depending on how you look at it, working people save a lot time and money by doing business at the Wal Mart and McDonald's. There’s nothing I like better than to walk into a Mom & Pop place and plop down an extra buck or two for a nice meal and friendly word. But economies of scale seem to be the only way to reach the first 3 goals. You cannot have Mom & Pop using energy to run 50 different businesses when Wal Mart gets it done at a fraction of the stress on an already “outgrown” planet.

5. One employee, one vote: An economic democracy is an economy where companies are built around the concept of one worker, one vote. In an economic democracy a company is a community of employees, where the employees, as full citizens of that community and the true source of company profit, decide how to invest that profit in the community. In this way, an economic democracy is distinct from both capitalism and socialism -- both variations of economic oligarchy -- where private boards on the one hand and public bureaucrats on the other decide how the profits workers generate are disposed of.

Comment: “Profits workers generate” of course will be a thing of the past. The “people” will just show up to work when they want, do whatever they want to do on that particular day and take home as much pay as they think they need, right? Sound’s good to me.

6. Economic Constitutionalism: In the United States Constitution the framers properly defined the powers and limits to the powers of the powerful institutions that govern our society. In an age where corporations have become as powerful as any institution of government, and have amassed undue influence over the policies of those institutions, their powers need to be defined and constitutionally limited just like any institution of government.

Comment: Amen brother. Keep Jeffy Imelt, Richard the dick Trumka, Andy Stern et al the hell away from the White House.

I think we need to take these people seriously. And by seriously, I mean go out and buy more ammo. Some little occupier d-bag named Harrison Shultz is calling this a revolutionary movement not a reform movement.

Well ok then. Let’s not be like the US government when the jihadis declared war on us and we did nothing. When Harrison mans up and actually starts something, he needs to take a good @$$ whippin’ right then and there.  Londoners were looking to buy baseball bats on e-bay while their city burned.  We should be ready before the first match is struck.

Just a few things

Return of the City State
Ever notice how when socialist trouble makers show up, it always in some large city. Worldwide, these mopes seem to gravitate toward large population centers to make their point. You never read about a mob of 20 or so shutting down the ice cream fountain at the Cochran Drug Store in Spillane, MT to protest the owner’s “greed” for raising the price on a Cherry Coke a nickel. I haven’t noticed a mob scene at the federal building in Marcy, OH (AKA the Post Office) where angry Marcyites call attention to the plight of area farmers being hamstrung by a mountain of federal farm regulation.

All of the trouble seems to be in large cities, London, Athens, Madrid, NY City, San Francisco, and elsewhere. And it’s funny that the trouble is caused by people without a vested interest in any particular outcome. They are for the most part what Rush Limbaugh refers to as a “rent a mob.’

Well anyhoo, all of the trouble got me to thinking that maybe we are returning to the days of the old city state where a large local population in a city controls large swaths of land around it. The first map above shows the county by county vote of the 2008 presidential election. Go BIG RED WE WON! Not so fast my friend. The second map shows how the concentration of blue in cities results in blue states. That translates into an electoral and popular vote victory for the P-BO.

A good case in point is OH. It appears that the Cleveland area controls the rest of the state. FL, IN, IL, PA and MN would be other good case studies where the large population centers control the state.

The blue areas on these maps are also probably pretty good bets on where the taxes, crime and unemployment are the highest. And last, they are the areas where, if there is trouble, it is sure to start.

The case for self deportation

When confronted with the BS argument about America’s 12 million or so illegal aliens that, “well, you know, we can’t deport them all,” Lex replies with a theory of self deportation. The illegal aliens got here on their own, once the jobs and benefits dry up, they will leave on their own.

Racist, bigoted, homophobic and Earth Hating Alabama proves the point. When that state passed a tough new state law aimed at curbing illegal immigrants, guess what? The illegals began disappearing from AL schools. Wow, who knew that if you enforced the law on illegals they would move out of the area? Well Lex for one.

Now we’re caught in a game of whack-a-mole. The illegals probably just transferred to an area where immigration laws aren’t being enforced, hopefully San Francisco. Until the feds get serious about controlling the border and enforcing the laws, we are going to continue to be flooded with low skill, poorly educated illegal immigrants who will be exploited by unscrupulous employers.

Dumbest things said recently

The P-BO - America’s gone soft 
BS! You can not get up on Mon morning after three days of steady football, baseball and NASCAR and claim that America has “gone soft.” Soft headed for electing a dope president, sure, but not soft in body and spirit.

Nanny State Mayor Mikey Bloomberg  - Government’s “highest duty” is to push healthy foods on the citizenry
BS! Hey Mikey head over to N. Korea. They’d be happy if the government would push any kind of food on them. Highest duty is healthy food? Idiot. Ask NYers who lost loved ones on 9-11 if they’d eat McDonalds for the rest of their days for the opportunity to have their loved ones back. Had the government taken its real highest priority seriously, they may still be with us. Idiot.

Rosanne Barr -“I first would allow the guilty bankers to pay… back anything over 100 million in personal wealth because I believe in a maximum wage of 100 million dollars and if they’re unable to live on that amount then they should go to the reeducation camps, and if that doesn’t help, then be beheaded.”
Now in the first two cases you expect that the guy who said it would know better. In this case, you have no such expectation.
