These people are nuts......

As long as we have new mouths to feed we have to grow the economy. What are they trying to say?

Growth is the Enemy of Humankind | NationofChange

Politicians, lobbyists and corporate media talking heads, and far too many ordinary people, have accepted and are promoting as gospel the circular notion that it’s important to encourage business to grow so that people will be hired and the economy can grow. This specious argument is used to justify the weakening labor unions, the raising of taxes on workers while they are cut for companies and the rich, the cutting of earned benefit programs like Social Security and Medicare, the gutting worker safety and environmental safety regulations, and the elimination of regulation of activities like banking, corporate mergers and takeovers, pharmaceutical companies etc. In fact every government action that results in making life harder or more dangerous for ordinary working people or for the poor is defended on the basis that it is necessary so that business can make more profit and help the economy to grow. Growing the economy, however, is not, or certainly should not, be the reason we have government, the reason we are a country, or the reason we are a society.

yes, hurry......

Then in short order it will be over like the last time time this was done and like last time the world will not come to an end!

Before Default, Let Republicans Bump Up Hard Against the Debt Ceiling | NationofChange

A prolonged confrontation over the nation's debt ceiling — unlike the "fiscal cliff," which provoked many scary headlines — could truly be grave for both America and the world. While press coverage often mentions the possibility of lowered credit ratings for the U.S. Treasury (again), that might only be the mildest consequence if Republicans in Congress actually refuse to authorize borrowing and avoid default. Last time the nation prepared to face such an impasse, during the spring and summer of 2011, the chairman of the Treasury Borrowing Advisory Committee — a JPMorgan Chase official named Matthew Zames — laid out a disturbing scenario in a letter to Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, in which he foresaw a rolling catastrophe that could inflict hundreds of billions in additional borrowing costs; spark a run on money funds, leading to a renewed financial crisis; severely disrupt financial markets and borrowing, killing fragile economic growth; and push the economy back into recession due to higher interest rates and tightened credit.

Think he did any good killing cops......

Black Rambo.....what a movie. Of course, that's all that will happen. No one care if he was telling the truth or not. He is a traitor to his profession and must be exterminated before he gets on TV.

He might get a few.

Time to wonder if California will ever recover and stop being a police state? I doubt it. Just don't let them get a hold of you if you think you are an American with constitutional rights.

Like Obama declaring an American a terrorist, murdering him and being defended by media drones whom will some day be next. 

I remember radio guys, Chuck Harder and Bill O'reilly being harrased by Clinton admin. Sure did shut them up......Bill's been very careful on his show to toe the line and harder no longer has a show.

Now, Piers Morgan keeps running his mouth against guns and as long as Obama is behind it he's safe....But paybacks are a bitch. He'll have to renew his visa under a Republican someday, LOL.

I know most of you who personally know me are in disbelief to hear from media reports that I am suspected of committing such horrendous murders and have taken drastic and shocking actions in the last couple of days. You are saying to yourself that this is completely out of character of the man you knew who always wore a smile wherever he was seen. I know I will be vilified by the LAPD and the media. Unfortunately, this is a necessary evil that I do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the LAPD and reclaim my name. The department has not changed since the Rampart and Rodney King days. It has gotten worse. The consent decree should never have been lifted. The only thing that has evolved from the consent decree is those officers involved in the Rampart scandal and Rodney King incidents have since promoted to supervisor, commanders, and command staff, and executive positions. The question is, what would you do to clear your name? Name; A word or set of words by which a person, animal, place, or thing is known, addressed, or referred to. Name Synonyms; reputation, title, appellation, denomination, repute. A name is more than just a noun, verb, or adjective. It's your life, your legacy, your journey, sacrifices, and everything you've worked hard for every day of your life as and adolescent, young adult and adult. Don't let anybody tarnish it when you know you've live up to your own set of eth

Sales taxes are a winner......

Yes, I'm going to beat this horse again. Income taxes kill jobs, incentives, and our notion of fairness. The worse idea in history because eventually the politically connected end up not paying........ DUH!!!!

Then the average guy looks around for a way  out of paying so he ends up voting for socialism and not reporting his income. Ultimately we end up not filing a form and the government becomes a gang of enforcers to keep the good times rolling in the capital.

Probably the most egreges is the class of parasites that grow from this tax system. Lobbyist, tax lawyers, real estate groups, tax payer rights organisations, media gadflys, beuracrats,  etc. all making reform or enforcement impossible.

Sales taxes just work. Just go shopping at Walmart in  a sales tax state and you'll see. Buy it and leave. Your paying a bit of everyone's taxes involved in the making, shipping and selling on the sale and then you pay the sales taxes to fund the local government.

Not a whole lot of parasites needed to fund the government involved here. Oh yes, this is the reason it's not going to happen nationally.

Too much bribe money opposing it!! 

TAUBE: Jindal-style tough love could be shot in the arm for GOP - Washington Times

For example, voters will listen to intelligent ideas that can lower personal income taxes and increase annual take-home pay. Support for smaller government is a must. A free-market economy with greater private-sector influence, trade liberalization and increased business and job opportunities will appeal to the American entrepreneurial spirit. Taming the deficit and controlling the debt will win brownie points. More individual rights and freedoms play to the historic — and accurate — position that Americans continue to value life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Mr. Jindal is starting to do just that in Louisiana. Last month, the governor proposed eliminating income and corporate state taxes, and increasing sales tax to make up for the shortfall. As he told the Times-Picayune, “For too long, Louisiana’s workers and small businesses have suffered from having a state tax structure that is too complex and that holds back economic prosperity. It’s time to change that so people can keep more of their own money and foster an environment where businesses want to invest and create good-paying jobs.”

What a waste of bytes......

My answer to a Washington Times article:

 To balance the budget you would have to eliminate the defense department, Social Security, Medicare, most government agencies and then you would only come close. I imagine even the most ardent tea party voter would chase his Congress men out of town.  Which makes this about as useful a political strategy as returning us to a gold standard. So whining about RINOs being too stupid to commit political suicide so you would feel better about economics is a non starter.....Election time no one will listen to you.

Again, the problem lies in the fact that the Federal government under a fiat system doesn't have to "balance it's check book " because it has unlimited money. As for bringing budgets into balance you quit creating new programs and give everyone a job until everybody no longer needs these so called budget busting programs and these deficits go the way of the Russians are coming.

And yes, I told anyone who would listen 30 years ago that sending all those blue collar jobs over seas would come back to bite us in the ass because you end up creating a humungous dependant class because too many of these people could barely make it through the ninth grade and.....


But I forget, it's those mean old Democrats  who are to blame for that and now it's those damn RINOs who refuse to commit political suicide.......

MILLER: The balanced budget dream - Washington Times

Under a law that just took effect, Barack Obama will be the first president required to send Congress a budget that balances at some point in the future. Since that point isn’t likely to be in anyone’s lifetime, Republicans once again are looking to a constitutional amendment to impose restraint. A firm limit is needed as our debt exceeds $16.5 trillion and will grow as Mr. Obama adamantly refuses to turn away from his tax-and-spend ways. All 45 Senate Republicans joined together in introducing a balanced budget amendment on the day after the president’s State of the Union address. “While the tendency in Washington is to eternally kick the can down the road, most Americans understand we’re at the end of that road,” Sen. John Cornyn, Texas Republican, the lead sponsor of the bill, told The Washington Times. “Now is the moment for the president and Democrats in Congress to join us and force Washington to follow the lead of working families and small businesses and balance its checkbook.”

I have the right to an Ar-15 because I am an American.....

It's legally defined as an "arm" and as such the government can not take it away without due process in a court of law.

Tough titty lefty.....

You would think these guys would be trying to do something important with their time but no they have to scare the fuck out of so we will give them money and votes. Both parties went broke trying to elect liberals as president and we got one. Now they need to get some more money to screw us over even more.

Make sure you participate, MORON!!!!

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Citizens must protect themselves - Washington Times

On a recent show, British TV host Piers Morgan pressed radio host Dana Loesch on why anyone would need an AR-15 rifle. I would like Mr. Morgan to answer a question for me: Why did the London police abandon whole sections of their city to be burned and looted? The fact is they set up a perimeter to protect the empowered, the well-to-do and their own safety. The London police left thousands of citizens to fend for themselves. Given British gun laws, the best the police had were baseball bats to protect themselves and their property. If Mr. Morgan really wants an answer to why people need AR-15s, he can ask the shopkeepers in Los Angeles, who were abandoned in identical fashion by the L.A. police during the riots in the 1990s. The police are under no legal obligation to protect you personally. Legally speaking, they can stand across the street and do nothing while your home is burned to the ground. Unfortunately, both here and in Britain, they sometimes choose to do exactly that.

What's with the left wing nuts lately?....

Bet you didn't even realise the vast majority of these nut cases shooting up the place were die hard oba mama voters? LOL.

Well, made to Tampa to see Patti. She's in no pain down here but she's very frail and becoming more helpless. Time will tell what I have to do but hospitalisation isn't that far away. Have to talk to her doctor and find the alternatives and figure how to pay for it. I believe the government picks up most of it but will find out.

Why the California Manhunt Should Embarrass the Gun Control Crowd -

But what the press avoided reporting were Mr. Dorner’s political and social views, despite the fact that in his own published manifesto, Mr. Dorner clearly stated his radical left-wing political beliefs. He went so far as to give a laundry list of liberal celebrities and news people whom he admired (Charlie Sheen being the most ludicrous). Now, we all know that the talking heads in the media would have been shouting from the rooftops if a mad killer had ever listened to Rush Limbaugh, or once visited a Tea Party website. But they seem utterly uninterested in Mr. Dorner’s radical leftist views, or how they might have motivated his killing spree. Not surprisingly, they adamantly continue to deny any bias in their reporting.

I fly out at 6am.........

Of course ,I just had to watch the movie "flight" with Denzel flying upside down and drunk. Lol.

couldn't agree more.....

A government as ours can print, borrow tax or steal any monies it needs. And it doesn't have to worry about this until the economy booms. Then we get inflationar y bubbles and humungous busts. Ask old George Bush!!!

f | Today

Well if those interest rates DO RISE, there is NO IMMEDIATE effect on interest paid by the debtor country because rates of interest on bonds are fixed when bonds are first issued. However, as bonds mature, then clearly the question arises as to whether to roll them over and pay the new higher rate of interest, or simply print money and repay the relevant creditors. Now there might seem to be a problem with the latter “print” option, namely that it could be inflationary. Well you have to wonder what planet anyone who thinks that has been living on for the last three years. During that time we’ve printed money like there’s no tomorrow and bought back debt and in the guise of quantitative easing. And where is the hyperinflation? However, its perfectly possible (in particular, absent a recession) that money printing could be inflationary. But that’s no problem: that inflationary effect can be countered with a very simple DEFLATIOINARY measure, namely raising taxes (and/or cutting public spending). And assuming the latter inflationary and deflationary effects cancel out, there is no effect on anything: no effect on demand, numbers employed and so on. See what I mean? This is all a total non-problem!! Well very nearly: there is actually one very minor problem which has to do with the amount of debt held by foreigners.

Eventually the economy will sky rocket.....

Then you raise taxes and interest rates.....Not during crashes. Bush did the opposite and destroyed the banking industry and then had to invent tarp to save the gang on Wall Street who owns our government . These criminals and ignoamus' wouldn't send you a dime but bailed out their friends with YOUR money..

Think about it next time you think voting makes a difference!

Kick That Can -

But that’s a secondary issue. The key point is this: While it’s true that we will eventually need some combination of revenue increases and spending cuts to rein in the growth of U.S. government debt, now is very much not the time to act. Given the state we’re in, it would be irresponsible and destructive not to kick that can down the road. Start with a basic point: Slashing government spending destroys jobs and causes the economy to shrink.

Get out the knee pads......

Suck up and they will vote for Republicans....Yea, right 

“Bravo” to Marco Rubio and GOP for Embracing Spanish | Fox News Latino

On Tuesday evening, it was announced Senator Marco Rubio would provide the GOP’s response to President Obama’s State of the Union address next week. No surprise, there — Rubio is the GOP’s rising star. What sent the Web into a tailspin of commentary: Rubio will present his remarks in both English and Spanish. While the majority of Americans cheer and praise the unique, historic move, criticisms nonetheless abound — from both sides of the political aisle. Comments on Twitter range from: “the GOP’s token Hispanic” and “it’s shameless pandering” to “this prevents Latinos’ assimilation” and (shockingly) “Rubio has divided loyalties.”

Republicans bark up wrong tree....

Deficits are reduced when we have jobs and credit to pay more in taxes.....Every dollar of government goes to us and goes back to the government in taxes....

Want to reduce deficits? Hire somebody off the unemployment and welfare rolls. Then send everybody a refun check or a loan forgiveness on student loans and something the Republicans forgot and got themselves into this mess....quit enlarging the government with new programs when you get back in charge.

Do I seriously believe this will happen? The Mexicans will declare California a free country first....(About time..) 

Robert Reich (The Economic Challenge Ahead: More Jobs and Growth, Not Deficit Reduction)

Under these circumstances, increasing taxes on the middle class (as, for example, Republican legislators and governors are eagerly doing by raising sales taxes, and as the federal government did last month by raising Social Security taxes) makes it even harder for consumers to spend. Which means slower growth and fewer jobs.  Likewise, cuts in government spending, such as occurred in the fourth quarter of 2012, cause the economy to contract — as it did in the fourth quarter.  In other words, we’re still having the wrong discussion. It shouldn’t be how to cut the budget deficit. It should be how to bring back good jobs and economic growth.  Deficit hawks and government-haters are still framing the debate. That bodes ill for all of us.

Isn't it funny....

That in cities controlled by the Dems they can't get their voters through to vote? Or is it they can't fill the ballot boxes with fake voters......

Robert Reich (The Real Debate Over American Citizenship)

Long waiting lines depressed voter turnout last November, especially in cities where Democrats outnumber Republicans. One study showed blacks and Hispanics on average had to wait nearly twice as long to vote as whites. Some gave up trying.  Voter registration is part of that issue, along with what sorts of proof of citizenship states may require. Dozens of legal challenges and lower-court decisions were made in the months leading up to the November election. Some are heading to appellate courts.  Congressional Democrats are pushing legislation to require states to ease voting requirements — allowing more early voting, online voting, and quicker means of registering. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court is preparing to hear a major challenge to the Voting Rights Act of 1965 potentially giving states more leeway to tighten voting standards.

My retirement jumped over 600 bucks this quarter ....

The boom will happen if the clowns in Washington would just leave the economy alone....Sounds like we have a good start because credit is being showered on me right now....And I'm borrowing!!

But speculation in the gasoline market will have to be curbed or all bets are off. I just know that the fat cats in Washington are in on this but cant find evidence yet......


Major changes from oil revolution - Washington Times

For Americans who came of age in an era marked by worries about scarce world oil supplies, dominant international oil cartels and unrest in the Middle East, the times are changing — quickly. Technologies bred in America are unlocking reserves of oil that for decades were considered out of reach. With oil production from shale rock, oil sands and deep-sea drilling booming in the U.S., Canada, Brazil and elsewhere, worries about Middle East-based oil cartels and vulnerable Persian Gulf supply lines are close to becoming things of the past. “Until recently, the U.S. was importing a significant chunk of its oil from the Middle East,” in particular, Saudi Arabia and Iraq, said Fatih Birol, chief economist at the International Energy Agency. “But we expect the U.S. will not need Middle East oil sometime soon. This has implications for international oil markets and beyond that.” Yet even as America’s energy resurgence enables the nation to dabble with the prospect of energy independence for the first time in a half-century and cast off a long-standing preoccupation with the oil cartel OPEC, China and other emerging titans are stepping to the fore with fast-rising energy demands that increasingly put them at the behest of OPEC’s producers. The combination is shaking up long-held assumptions about how U.S. political leaders should deal with the world’s most indispensable commodity.
