A Halo for Selfishness

And I think that there should be no restrictions on campaigns or campaign donations. The left like to quash political speech in order to control the discourse. As we know, lots of liberal folks are upset that corporations are considered 'people' and this allows them to donate to political campaigns. They are also considered 'people' so that they can enter into contracts too. So, there is actual reasons why corporations are to be considered 'people.'

Well, if government can impact both people and corporations with their market interventions, then i think that it makes perfect sense that corporations be allowed to defend the interests of their shareholders and employees. Furthermore, unions have always been involved in political matters and they too are now allowed under the same ruling to participate.

Religious Freedom Goes Too Far - Yahoo News

I find this kind of thinking to be absolutely disgusting and it is at the core of the modern liberal/progressive/Democrat thinking. The writer equates the government forcing companies to offer certain types of abortion services to the fight for civil rights for black folks back in the 1950s and 60s. And he cites some evidence that some argued for Jim Crow laws and discrimination as being biblically motivated. this illustration is dishonest.

Yes, some have used religion not just in discrimination in the deep south but also in history to forward political political positions and engage in hegemony against their neighbors. But this was obviously not a legitimate use of faith but deceitful, as religion does not preach this. We all know that discrimination in the deep south did not flow from religious beliefs since they were not the same in other parts of the country or in other nations. So medacious arguments that Christianity support discrimination against Blacks was not taken seriously by others at the time.

However, central to some people's faith is the sanctity of human life and the discourse has been clear for decades that many folks DO NOT want to be complicit in the support of abortion just as I do not want to be complicit in abortion and the state's execution of prisoners. This is a core principle and it is was not dreamed up to fight against government forcing employers to provide these abortion services to their employees. For a writer like this to argue otherwise is misleading, deceitful and frankly appalling. But this is what we have come to expect from these kinds of people that think that all authority flows from government.

When government intervenes and determines what kind of contract one can have between employer and employee, then the government is overstepping its legitimate authority. Many have accepted this, and I think that they are wrong and government, as envisioned and designed in the US, does not have this authority. However, government when 'given and inch will take a mile' and it thinks that it has the authority to force people to engage in practices that these individuals deem to be against the core values of their faith, then government risks unraveling any authority and this is what is at stake for me.

It is government that has gone too far and not religious freedom that has gone too far.

I have very little respect for people like this writer that use tired civil rights arguments to try to crush liberty , force their beliefs down our throats and it is the progressive enforcers such as this that we have to watch out for as we move further towards the US authoritarian state.

A warning to Americans from France....

The welfare state, like Obamacare and an exploding welfare state that these become unsustainable. Additionally, as French PM Hollande has stated that 'he hates rich people' this coarseness is fast becoming a part of the US discussion. Demonize the people that have earned something in order to justify taking away the product of their labor and abilities.

Watch out for an Iranian nuclear bomb being delivered by this hijacked 777???

But why would they do that since they already have planes? Or a terrorist group that creates a flying bomb? Israel better be prepared. Assuming, of course, that a hijack is actually what happened and that the plane did not get ditched in the Indian Ocean. The plane went to 45,000 feet and thin air would have incapacitated or killed the passengers. Mathematically, it would be somewhat easy to figure out where this plane could be, satellites probably 'saw' these this Saturday night. I will go out on a limb and guess that the plane will probably 'found' in the next 48 hours. If it is on the ground, military assault is being planned to get it back.

Global Debt Exceeds $100 Trillion as Governments Binge, BIS Says - Bloomberg

The amount of debt globally has soared more than 40 percent to $100 trillion since the first signs of the financial crisis as governments borrowed to pull their economies out of recession and companies took advantage of record low interest rates, according to the Bank for International Settlements.
Debt could be rising faster than GDP but I do not know that for sure. But if GDP is growing at 3% annually, then we are getting gorwth of around 60% of the amount of debt being created. This is clearly not sustainable and I suspect that it will end relatively quickly.

Russia, Ukraine, Poland and 2 Timely New Saints

If the WaPo believes Obama has been living in a fantasy world, well, he seems to still be there — how else does he believe he can simultaneously cut our military back to pre-WWII levels while “squeezing Russia”, diplomatically, as though diplomacy has been his strong point, or something.
Our president is man who's intelligence has never been questioned due to the color of his skin. Now it is too late. People have said to me not too worry since 1 president won't destroy America but it is only a hope.

The Uninsured Are Turning Against Obamacare. That's A Problem

The Obama administration is running into a somewhat surprising roadblock in its final push to get Americans enrolled in Obamacare ahead of the March 31 deadline: The nation's uninsured are increasingly suspicious of the law.
And why shouldn't they be worried that their future is being held in the feeble hands of an unknown interlocutor in Washington?

But also, maybe folks know that government that oversteps its capabilities does so not through good intentions but for nefarious purposes. That is why the Obamessiah said over-and-over 'if you like your health care plan you can keep it.' It was an intentional lie repeated so that people acquiesced to the foisting of the biggest government intervention on the American people in many decades. The lies were told in the hope that it becomes the truth. The problem is that the Obemessiah was not smart enough to recognize that lies do not become truth just because they are repeated. Maybe he was listening a little too closely to what was said almost 100 years ago....
A lie told often enough becomes the truth.
Vladimir Lenin

The Uninsured Are Turning Against Obamacare. That's A Problem

If you don't like government intervention into your lives, then you are liar according to Democratic Senate Majority leader Harry Reid....

You have to like what the central government does for you. You have no right as as an American to have an opinion about what the government FORCES you too do through the force of law and the threat of penalty and jail. Washington, can largely force you to do anything now despite the 9th and 10th Amendments to the Constitution. The concept of individual liberty in which the nation was founded is dead. Long live collectivism and central planning! Speak out against the government, you then are attacked as a liar by the government. Isn't this what authoritarian regimes do? According to the Senate majority leader, you are a liar. Here are examples of Americans that are liars... Here.

The Next Shoe To Drop: Obamacare Will Increase The Cost Of Employer-Sponsored Insurance - Forbes

The disaster of central planning of healthcare in the US keep rolling on crushing everything in its path. As I have said, this central government socialist nightmare will increase costs, reduce access, hurt outcomes (make people sicker and deader)and funniest of all, decrease coverage. Less people will have healthcare insurance coverage after all of these one-size-fits-all mandates than before. How stupid are these people?

You would never have heard these stats from the "health experts" before.....

Until now, the United States has had the highest survival rates in the world for heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Cancer comparisons are the most useful because all Western countries keep careful records for this disease.

For all types of cancers, European men have only a 47.3 percent five-year survival rate, compared to a 66.3 percent survival rate for American men.

European women have only a 55.8 percent chance of being alive five years after being diagnosed with any type of cancer, compared to 62.9 percent of American women.

American survival rates for breast, prostate, thyroid and skin cancer are higher than 90 percent. Europeans do not have a 90 percent survival rate for one of those cancers.

The European rates are even worse than they sound because many cancers are not discovered until the victim's death -- twice as many as in the U.S. All those cancers were excluded from the study.

Canadian cancer survival rates aren't much better than the European rates -- and they've been able to sneak into to the U.S. for treatment! Women in the U.S. have a 61 percent survival rate for all cancers, compared to a 58 percent survival rate in Canada. Men in the U.S. have a 57 percent survival rate compared to 53 percent in Canada.
So, we seek to be more competitive with Europe? If our heart and cancer survival rates are higher, what are we seeking to do? I think its just that the government wants to control our healthcare so that we are subjugated to them. Too bad.

China Training For "Short, Sharp War" With Japan, US Navy Warns | Zero Hedge

I have to say, that I am disappointed in lots of local Hong Kong people and their tacit support of China aggression against Japan with the intent of taking over the useless islands contested. Worthless islands are worthless islands and its all about "face" and not about common sense.

Additionally, China is figuring that the USA does not have the stomach to stand up and this is both a stupid and understandable position. The current POTUS has proven to be dim witted when it comes to foreign relations. Europeans love this guy since they see in him the redistribution of wealth and socialism that they hold dear.

However, the rest of the world cannot take this dim witted ditherer seriously and this is where China's position gets dangerous. Figuring that POTUS will probably fold, the chances for further complications such as a strike back by Japan or some kind of provocation from North Korea, things could spiral out of control quickly if the Obamessiah is then forced to raise the ante and this becomes a broader conflict. I do not see this as winnable for any party and not worth fighting by any side.

BRUCE: Obamacare isn't a train wreck, it's a cancer - Washington Times

Americans will get much less than they think that they should be getting since the government WILL cheat you. A private company that cheats you can be sued and one can make life miserable for these kinds of cheats. However, when government cheats you, you have no recourse at all....
So fooling you, by lying about what the situation is, will at least get you to buy into the scheme. That’s weird, but that sounds like something Mr. Obama would do.

One guy ruined the plan after he purchased health insurance on the California exchange and then had the gall to call doctors to set up an appointment. His temerity drove him to call every doctor listed as in-network, and none of them were.

In the normal world, this would be called “fraud.” In Obama’s America, it’s called a “snag,” and on a national scale, the Obama regime labels it “Shut up, Fox News!”
Americans are being screwed and I hope that my fellows citizens enjoy every moment since it is purely their fault that they, 1. Elected a clown. 2. Trust government to do what it is patently incapable of doing.

Charles Krauthammer: The health-care myths we live by - The Washington Post

The government's flat-earth prescription to solve short comings in American healthcare will only lead us to a world where Liebnitz philosophy will be the reality going forward and that is 'since this is the only possible worlds, its the best possible world.'

So, looking at some the flat-earth science in the government's central planning approach to healthcare we find that the assumptions made are not what we are finding out is actually happening. But of course, the brilliant folks in Washington would never let on that this is the case, but we can sum it all up as such...
This is not to say that medical practice should stand still. It is to say that we should be a bit more circumspect about having central planners and their assumptions revolutionize by fiat the delicate ecosystem of American health care.
American will pay with their property and lives for what will end up being a churlish denial of what people have worked for and earned at the hands of government bureaucrats.

Obama Considering Three Year Extension To Obamacare | Zero Hedge

Central planning does not work. However, failure is just a matter of time and we never know how long that will be. The Soviet Union failed but that took over 70 years. China had to largely abandon central planning after around 40 years. Europe, is in the process of unwinding and if one looks at socialized medical systems there, they are bursting at the seams due to changes in demographics.

However, central planning in the USA, such as the housing debacle in the USA 5 years ago, took 70 years for brilliant central planning to go off the rails. This is because, politicians cannot help themselves to leave things alone.

But, Obamacare is collapsing, deservedly, before it is even implemented since poorly designed central planning and the ability of modern market economies to adjust is just more robust. So what is the stupid POTUS doing to save his crowning communist achievement?
Actually, the only reason why Obama is suddenly willing to compromise over every aspect of his "crowning achievement" is that finally its tactical, and strategic failure has become clear for all to see. So it would be best to enact it piecemeal, and claim success for whatever legacy aspects of the system are working, while blasting everything that his unprecedentedly complicated, centrally-planned contraption has unleashed.

Finally, why three years? Because by then Obama will be gone (absent some very radical changes to presidential term rules), and Obamacare will be someone else's problem.
People are going to suffer greatly due to central government meddling in their lives. We suffered a cataclysmic financial crisis 5 years ago, one that created by government itself and since politicians just cann't help themselves, they double down on socialism. We will pay and we will pay dearly.

Government Bureaucrat Logic...

As of mid-January, Covered California was about halfway toward meeting its initial goal of signing up 1.3 million people for individual policies by the March 31 enrollment deadline. Lee said about three-quarters of consumers who had selected a plan have paid their first month's premium.
He said the exchange had been slammed with people wanting to enroll.
"The volume surprised all of us," he said.
Okay.  Volume has surprised them.   However, after nearly 4 months with about a two months to go, they are only at half their goal.  To me this implies that not as many as expected have signed up so, how could the volume therefore have surprised them?

I suspect that they have been experieincing data problems and customers are being forced to call in to try to what they cannot effectively do online.  So, in reality, the volume of PROBLEMS is what has surprised them.

This intrusion into people's lives and personal health will lead to worse outcomes, less people having health insurance, poorer access to real healthcare and will end up being much more expensive.  This is the kind of stuff that we get from an incompetent government.

Senior UK Defense Advisor: Obama Is Clueless About ‘What He Wants To Do In The World’ - The Daily Beast

Clueless and incapable....
Strachan, a current member of the Chief of the Defense Staff’s Strategic Advisory Panel, cited the “crazy” handling of the Syrian crisis as the most egregious example of a fundamental collapse in military planning that began in the aftermath of 9/11. “If anything it’s gone backwards instead of forwards, Obama seems to be almost chronically incapable of doing this. Bush may have had totally fanciful political objectives in terms of trying to fight a global War on Terror, which was inherently astrategic, but at least he had a clear sense of what he wanted to do in the world. Obama has no sense of what he wants to do in the world,” he said.

“Obama has no sense of what he wants to do in the world.”

The dithering over intervention against President Bashar al-Assad has empowered the Syrian ruler, undermined America’s military reputation and destabilized the Middle East, said Strachan. “What he’s done in talking about Red Lines in relation to Syria has actually devalued the deterrent effect of American military capability and it seems to me that creates an unstable situation, because if he were act it would surprise everybody,” he said. “I think the other issue is that in starting and stopping with Assad, he’s left those who might be his natural allies in Syria with nowhere to go. He’s increased the likelihood that if there is a change of regime in Syria that it will be an Islamic fundamentalist one.”

Britain’s shock parliamentary vote against military action in Syria also exposed Prime Minister David Cameron’s lack of a clear strategy. “It absolutely illustrated the failure to think through the strategic implications of his own actions,” said Strachan.
And why would any of our allies go along with the child president that has no clue what to do?

The reality is that the Obamessiah prior to becoming President never had to make a decision, had never had anyone question him, never had to actually produce anything of value and never failed. Never failed mainly because his skin color is considered Black and never held to the standards of others.

Country Rankings: World & Global Economy Rankings on Economic Freedom

The United States continues to slide on the Heritage Foundation's index of economic freedom falling to 12th place, behind Estonia. This is no surprise to me as the American central government continues to intervene in what used to be a free enterprise system that is now a centrally planned and effectively corporate fascist state. As economic liberty falls, so will incomes, employment and standards of living.

The US is now living on past accomplishments and with government and the people's expectation of government intervention, I do not think that the nation will be able to extricate itself from this slide. We are fast becoming just another non-descript Euro socialist state.

The 2013 Darwin Awards Are Out!

This one is great...

4. After stopping for drinks at an illegal bar, a Zimbabwean bus driver found that the 20 mental patients he was supposed to be transporting from Harare to Bulawayo had escaped. Not wanting to admit his incompetence, the driver went to a nearby bus stop and offered everyone waiting there a free ride. He then delivered the passengers to the mental hospital, telling the staff that the patients were very excitable and prone to bizarre fantasies. The deception wasn’t discovered for 3 days.

University sends email to alumni equating tea party with KKK | The Daily Caller

Why are liberals and Democrats so afraid of the Tea Party? i think that it is because the fundamentals behind the Tea Party is that it is a grass roots movement towards self reliance, smaller government and less intrusion by government in the people's lives where they do not belong. Returning to a true Constitutional government, where the 9th and 10th amendments are not ignored, threatens the left since it is through the central government that that they get their portfolio of power that they have not earned and do not deserve.

So, they try to brand the Tea Party as racist or some other thought crime instead of actually understanding what the Tea Party is and where the disatisfaction comes from.

Iran Will Not Have an Atomic Bomb. Period.

The idea that the slapstick comedians Kerry and the Obamessiah can somehow broker peace with a recalcitrant foe such as Iran is not just naive, its frankly stupid and by giving in to their demands like we did with the Syrians will make us less safe. One does not win in card game by folding.

Roger L. Simon » Iran Will Not Have an Atomic Bomb. Period.

"It is curious that people tend to regard government as a quasi-divine, selfless, Santa Claus organization. Government was constructed neither for ability nor for the exercise of loving care; government was built for the use of force and for necessarily demagogic appeals for votes. If individuals do not know their own interests in many cases, they are free to turn to private experts for guidance. It is absurd to say that they will be served better by a coercive, demagogic apparatus." -Murray Rothbard, Power and Market: Government and the Economy, 1970-

The State is an institution of theft....

The above is a thought from Murray Rothbard, American philosopher and one of the founders of the post-WWII libertarian movement. Even the Europeans are catching on. "tax is just about a system where politicians and bureaucrats steal money from the it citizens to squander in the most disgraceful manner."

Amazing. Thought of the day....

As Kersten concludes, the primary cause of entrenched poverty is not where people live, but how they behave. For example, in Hennepin County, the out-of-wedlock birth rate for U.S. born blacks is 84 percent. The white rate is 18 percent.
Maybe these folks should consider returning to being normal for a change.

More stupidity from the frothing-at-the-mouth leftist New York Times.....

"(Dallas) reckoning with its own legacy as the “city of hate,” the city that willed the death of the president."
From here. This is such a piece of rubbish but it no longer amazes me that it is from the New York Times. A communist sympathizer, Lee Harvey Oswald, apparently acting as a lone gunman, murdered the nation's president. However, how is that a city by wishing, or thinking or magically forcing someone to act is a legitimate theme in a modern newspaper? Someone can not like or even hate a President's policies but remain civil and respectful counter force. But they were 50 years ago, my kinds of folks there....
in a white-collar enclave in a decidedly blue-collar state — often loathed the federal government at least as much as, if not more than, they did the Soviet Union or Communist China.
But horrendous violence despite some evidence that the right engages in some too, is part of portfolio of the left. Pol Pot, Mao and others have routinely killed millions though the evacuation of individual and economic liberty in their states as has those in the fascist camps. However, I find it difficult to buy that a political or economic philosophy that does not surrender economic or personal liberty and the voraciousness of that message is anyway something that show be convicted of a crime. It is how it should be. And in case those that choose to believe such chewy tripe as we find in this piece, one has to remember that Oswald was a Communist. A supporter of the the Soviet Union and Cuba and their economic models. One therefore may argue that it is in fact Socialism not Conservationism that is the true hater and ones that should be blamed for this specific tragedy.

The phrase “political correctness” was born as Communism was collapsing. I do not think this was chance. I am not suggesting that the torch of Communism has been handed on to the political correctors. I am suggesting that habits of mind have been absorbed, often without knowing it.
Limiting speech to politically correct speech, bludgeoning some folks as racist when one tries to distill speech into gobbledygook that makes the derivatives somehow appear racist and global warming are the tools used by those that do not deserve political power or who do not have legitimate power to wield more than they have earned. As communism failed, these are the tools that took its place.

Obamacare is doomed to fail.....

The Fatal Conceit: by Friedrich Hayek is a must read for those that think that government can actually make things better. As Wikipedia writes:
The book attempts to conclusively refute all forms of Socialism by demonstrating that socialist theories are not only logically incorrect but that the premises they use to form their arguments are incorrect as well. To Hayek the birth of civilization is due to the start of societal traditions placing importance on private property leading to expansion, trade, and eventually the modern capitalist system, also known as the extended order.[1] Socialists are wrong because they disregard the fact that modern civilization naturally evolved and was not planned. Additionally, since modern civilization and all of its customs and traditions naturally led to the current order and are needed for its continuance, any fundamental change to the system that tries to control it is doomed to fail since it would be impossible or unsustainable in modern civilization. Price signals are the only means of enabling each economic decision maker to communicate tacit knowledge or dispersed knowledge to each other, in order to solve the economic calculation problem.
Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and the government itself are all doomed to fail in coming decades. It will cost American's dearly for the illness of socialism that bedraggled the nation for 80 years or so. For many, it will cost them their lives.

Hard for Democrats to show their faces after this complete collapse in government and finally the proof that government has no place in people's economic lives.

Former Fed Quantitative Easer Confesses, Apologizes: "I Can Only Say: I'm Sorry, America" | Zero Hedge

Central planning inevitably fails. It will fail here too. The interventions in the markets by the central banks around the world will destroy many nations and impoverish millions if not billions of people. But we cannot remove the opiates....
And the impact? Even by the Fed's sunniest calculations, aggressive QE over five years has generated only a few percentage points of U.S. growth. By contrast, experts outside the Fed, such as Mohammed El Erian at the Pimco investment firm, suggest that the Fed may have created and spent over $4 trillion for a total return of as little as 0.25% of GDP (i.e., a mere $40 billion bump in U.S. economic output). Both of those estimates indicate that QE isn't really working.
And it really didn't work. But we will pay for it and that is upcoming.

This is what socialism and central planning is all about.

So what about the deception or lie as some wouls call it?

First, lying is presumably acceptable for Democrats (and Muslims) if it is part of a means to an end. This is what my father suggested to me years ago when I asked him about Bill Clinton and his sleazy ways. But my father would not discuss with me what those ends were. So, it must be acceptable to lie and maybe even cheat and steal if the ends are justified.

Second, since the Obamessiah is Black, he should not be held to a standard that the rest of us are held to since he is....Black. I don't get it and if you don't get it, then you are a racist.

Third, government is not capable of creating value, it will only redistribute what already exists. There will be folks that are winners in this redistribution and there will be losers. If the Obamamessiah did not lie about this, then the folks, particularly the losers, may not have found it acceptable. Now that the folks are finding out that they are being completely screwed, its too late. Its the law and the government is going to force this new system on you no matter what. As the philosopher Liebnitz opined, since this is the only possible world 'its the best of all possible worlds.' Voltaire hated this and would have hated what the United States has become.

Obama got carried away with health care reform: and is a disaster

I never doubted that socialized medicine in the US will end up being a complete and total disaster. The reason being is that central planning and socialism does not work. Also, government is incompetent and destroys the ability of people to make choices and decisions on their own and improving things over time through experimentation, success and failure.
