Sarah Palin is The One

While pathetic rags like Newsweek and MSNBC are freaks who have taken out their brains and are playing with them, serious intelligent main stream US citizens are awake, alert, and in action and taking back our Country.

Just 33% of US Voters say the country is heading in the right direction according to the latest Rasmussen Poll.

Obama and the rest of the Socialists have unveiled themselves as the Socialist Economy Destroyers of the Country. Their Poll numbers are dropping like wilted Daisies  in the Noon Day Sun.

There is a destiny in the making… America’s Destiny… as the Socialists are driven back further and further.

And this time? There will be no False Hope pandering by Obama who’s Change is failing utterly.

There is New Change in the wind… and no Socialist weapon formed against it shall prosper.


America is Reestablishing Herself
In a Future
With Out You

    a little loopy here sorry…

    I know the liberals are scared of Palin, but the need to stop these attacks. They claim that they are not scare of her, but they keep acting like it.

    I notice that the liberals are not going after Romney or Huckabee.

    Liberals are making Palin look like a very powerful woman.

    On twitter, there is a tweet site called:
    Fight the Smears About Sarah Palin

    I did subscribe to you

  5. arlenearmy says:

    That woman who Oreily just interviewd is full of it!! She is questioning Palin’s faith in God.

    It was God’s will that McCain lost. If may had been God’s will for Palin to go thru Katie Couric interview, so that she would be strengthened.

    It may had been God’s will that McCain lost the election so that his lost would be a teachable moment to a nation who had become too liberal.

    I’m so sick of Obama and them railroading communism through, and his ties to big Labor and big Corporate Elites.

    It’s not even 2010 yet.

    If he doesn’t step down from office before 2012, I don’t know if we’ll have a country in 3 more years.

    He needs to step down now.
    He’s a communist, non-American.

    by John Charlton

    (Nov. 17, 2009) — Yesterday, The Post & Email reported that Mr. Paul Tsukiyama, Director of the Office of Information Practices — the very office overseeing public complaints regarding the Hawaii Department of Health’s refusal to release public documents or information regarding Obama’s alleged vital records kept by that department — resigned quietly on Nov. 6th, and that no one knew where he went.

    Yesterday, The American Spectator also spoke about resignations, and speculated about their motives, but these regarding a place on the opposite site of the country: Washington, D.C..

    In an editorial by The Washington Prowler, “Obama goes to the Matresses”, we are told that Cassandra Butts, “a Harvard classmate of Obama’s and one of the administration’s highest-ranking African Americans . . . quietly resigned on Friday, November 6 . . .” .

    This resignation preceded that of her immediate superior, Gregory Craig, who left the position of White House Counsel only days ago.

    The coincidence of all these resignations appears to be part of a grand strategy of Obama to tie up loose ends and prevent the imminent breaking of a dyke of facts and evidence which will indict his claims of transparency, openness and change.

  10. arlenearmy says:

    I went to the site you just listed, but I still cant readily locate the 2004 Keyes-Obama debate. I do recall it was on Cspan.

    Last time I saw it online was about a month ago. I dont think I downloaded it.

    Watching Palin on Hannity right now.

  12. m2 says:

    yeah I got to turn off the computer to see Palin!!

  13. VotingFemale says:

    All women on the comment log tonight… wow!

    Warrant? three surgeries? in the last three weeks? OMG!!!!!!!!!!

    Are you Ok now, girlfriend????????

    You seem in good spirits…

    And yes… Sarah is The One
    She has reloaded… and gaining her stride, and stretching her wings… the next two years are before her to gain what she needs in her medicine pouch… to gain experience to knock it out of the field for us… what she already has no one other Politician in play in the United States has… or anything close to it. Her power is beyond imagination.

  14. VotingFemale says:

    Belle, let the printing presses rolll…

  15. VotingFemale says:


    I am DVRing Hannity’s interview with Sarah… I do not want to be interrupted as I watch it and hubs is being bratty tonight…

  16. VotingFemale says:

    Arlene, I checked Sarah’s book signing schedule and I think the closest to Boston she gets is Rochester, NY…. too far for me. pout…

    I paid a visit to your blog… and took care of a little light work over there 😉

  17. hey VF, wearing down…but ever so happy of the outcome(hint it was divine intervention today for me)

    Yes Palin, lock and load your first 20 round magazine . Hooah!

    We got your back! hahahaah

  18. arlenearmy says:

    Obama claims that he don’t have time to read Palin’s book. He had better read her book so that he can learn something.

    But then, he wont read the bill either.

  19. arlenearmy says:

    Thanks for taking care the nuisance I was experiencing at my blog 🙂

  20. arlenearmy says:

    Obama’s ass on the news again. Why don’t that man just go away.

    Sieg Heil und Guten Morgan fellow unAmerican Nazis!
    It’s time to unfurl the Confederate Swastika and fire the cannon!

  23. VotingFemale says:

    Good Morning Foxwood!

  24. Foxwood says:

    Sarah on Hannity last night, again answered questions like she might run in 2012. I think we will see a large following behind this woman. In my opinion, she is the next best thing to Reagan.

  25. Foxwood says:

    Good morning, VF!

  26. Foxwood says:

    I’ve got a new area to take care of. Part of the buyout took place last Friday, and if you haven’t noticed, I’ve not been on as much. Lot’s of work and area to cover. Hopefully it will settle down in a couple of weeks.

  27. VotingFemale says:

    I firmly believe she is seeks the presidency and rather than talking down to Americans, she seeks others to promote her nomination.

    This is extremely early in the 2012 election cycle to start overt campaigning for that office and she correctly sees the process as a pathway… stepping stones which entails actions to secure a 2010 take back of congress… first things first. Direct presidential campaigning is for the future, not the present… thus she says… I am not closing doors… the we will see what we will see.

    Her resignation as Governor was a stroke of genius… though it came at a price of appearing to be a quitter in the eyes of some… thus a weapon, her actions will speak for themselves as the next year and the 2011/2012 election period unfolds.

  28. Foxwood says:

    I’m just now putting 2 and 2 together. Someone needs to find out who’s pockets Stimulus money went into.

    New Mexico District 15, received an amount of Stimulus money. New Mexico only has 8 districts. Hmmm…

    Harry Reid is pushing the Healthcare Bill through the Senate without letting anyone read the Bill. Hmmm…

    Again, what does 2 plus 2 equal?

    What other fictitious districts got money? Look at the state it’s in and I bet you find the sleaze ball associated.

  29. VotingFemale says:

    We all noticed… and have been missing you.

    We can’t all be here all the time… including me but I know we are all here in spirit and are not giving up.

    I predict the most damning decision of Obutthole’s life is the decision to try the 911 terrorists as civilians in a civilian court in NYC.

    It proves Obama’s arrogant stupidity and it is his waterloo. Talk about arrogance… I knew it would nail him sooner or later.

    Foxwood says

    I’ve got a new area to take care of. Part of the buyout took place last Friday, and if you haven’t noticed, I’ve not been on as much. Lot’s of work and area to cover. Hopefully it will settle down in a couple of weeks.

  30. VotingFemale says:

    The Stimulus billions is a magnet for political corruption… and the socialist suckers who bite that bait will go down…

    Obama spent $18 million for a website which is a total F-up of a website… Obama will likely say… hey they are having “technical problems” while he has been using the inflated mistakes to tell people how many jobs he has created… private sector jobs are created by the private sector not by a president.

    Socialist bullsh!t… it’s what they do… it’s all they do.

  31. Foxwood says:

    Mary Landreiu says she will not vote for HC if she does not get to see it. BS. I’ve called and told her not to vote for it at all. I know what she’s going to do.

    “Oh, Harry told me he would take out the public option, so I voted for it. I didn’t know he was going to trick me”, and she has her way out. She thinks New Orleans is that stupid. They are.

  32. VotingFemale says:

    I learned of this assertion last month… and found and watched the entire video of that Obama – Keyes debate… and Obama never said anything about his citizenship… it never came up.

    There are leftists spreading BS as bait… and unsuspecting folks are not vetting stuff before they propagate it.

    it happens… and think about it… the video of that debate has been available for years now… if the event happened as claimed, Obama would have been taken down by the GOP during the primaries.

    Remember the bs about the Michelle to African Freepress audio taped phone calls?

    Total BS…

    m2 says

    Sorry for your rough 3 weeks Warrant… 😦

    Hey Arlene, check this out:

  33. VotingFemale says:

    If they pass this HC WMD it will destroy the DEM party presence in congress… and the HC WMD will be undone with a conservative majority in congress with a conservative president.

    These socialists/marxists are falling on their swords… Kamikaze’s, the lot. Bullsh!t, their game.

    Foxwood says

    Mary Landreiu says she will not vote for HC if she does not get to see it. BS. I’ve called and told her not to vote for it at all. I know what she’s going to do.

    “Oh, Harry told me he would take out the public option, so I voted for it. I didn’t know he was going to trick me”, and she has her way out. She thinks New Orleans is that stupid. They are.

  34. VotingFemale says:

    One of the main reasons we need a president like Sarah is to keep the GOP party hacks in check in a majority situation… someone has to stand up for We the People and Principles first… party, second. And that is a defining characteristic of Sarah Palin and why she has enemies in both parties. And why GOP candidates need to be selected very carefully… to prevent a repeat of the Bush years of GOP misbehavior which lead to the Socialist Majority.

  35. m2 says:

    Good morning VF! I was thinking about the debate today, and the supposed exchange didn’t sound right.

    One thing weird though, are the close counsil stepping down around Obama in HA and with Greg Craig.

  36. m2 says:

    Here’s transcript of that terrible AG Holder who is obviously more concerned about a religios lunatic’s desire to kill and his rights- rather than the American people, citizens:

  37. m2 says:

    Ugh I DISlike Chuck Schumer. Major dislike.

    He’s the guy that kept loopholes in for hedge fumders in 2007 as a favor to Soros.

  38. VotingFemale says:

    Good Morning M2!

    There are leaks to the media within the white house… and Glenn Beck has planted seeds of White House paranoia flatly stating he is being fed insider information from the white house.

    The common thinking is Craig is the GITMO whipping boy being hung out to dry as a non-Chicago made man.

    Time will tell what is really going on… even Hitler had insiders who were against him… paranoia is a powerful thang! hahahahaha

    Hey Obama? You got sellouts in your kitchen… just sayin’

    Wink! Wink!
    You Betcha!

  39. VotingFemale says:

    M2, in my view, Holder is in extremely serious trouble… and Obama booting a Chicago Made Man for a decision Obama obviously made is not as simple as booting Greg Craig. Holder has ‘friends” and I am going to enjoy watching the political socialist blood trail as the white house runs for cover on this.

    Remember Obama’s arrogance about being called out for his “As President, I will meet with anyone I want and without preconditions” during the debates with McCain? and he stuck with that losing position regardless of the stupidity of it just because he did not want to back down?

    His geopolitical stupidity coupled with his arrogance was a bear trap waiting for him to step on…

    NYC 911 terrorist trials is such a bear trap and he will go down for it.

  40. samhenry says:

    Morning M2, VF , FOX

    bow and curtsey

    I had a friend who was an independent say “he’s just like Hitler” and I just about fainted with joy.

    He–the great pretender, Obama – I just can’t say President anymore).

    Can you imagine – a trial in NYC for terrorists and one in California for Obama and his birth certificate? And Palin just going along on the bus selling to 15,0000 at each stop!

  41. m2 says:

    I had to plug in the pod it was about to die..

    With all this waiting on Afghanistan, I am party thinking, maybe Obama is so sinister he wants American soldiers to die or something. I can’t help but have it cross my mind, only because… This whole situation of his “leadership” and “decision-making” is getting ridiculous.

  45. m2 says:

    so did they make up the “false” congressional districts in order to funnel the money elsewhere?

    I forget who wrote that stimulus. I know it was a left-wing organization. They’ve probably had that and the cap/trade, and healthcare written for the past decade. These people have just been waiting for the power-opportunity to fall into their claws.

    Thousands cheer Palin in Mich. for book tour

    Sarah Palin’s Book Free – Get Going Rogue — Incredible Offer. Go Here Now

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) – College students ditched class, employees skipped work and some huddled in the cold overnight just to make sure they get an orange wristband Wednesday that would let them meet Sarah Palin.

    Thousands gathered outside a Barnes & Noble and chanted “Palin! Palin! Palin!” for the kickoff of the former Republican vice presidential candidate’s “Going Rogue” book tour, which has taken on the feel of a political pep rally.

    “She’s a person of faith, she has a family, she has gone through a lot of the trials and tribulations we have. I’d vote for her in a heartbeat,” said Lana Smith, a dispatcher at a bus company who took the day off work and had been waiting in line since 5:30 a.m.

    “Someday I hope her name is up in lights and I’ll have had the privilege of meeting her,” Smith said.

    County music played as Palin’s tour bus, painted to resemble the cover of her book, pulled up to the Woodland Mall in Grand Rapids.

    “I just can’t tell you how good it is to be back in Michigan,” the former Alaska governor told the crowd, which chanted “Palin! Palin!”

    “Alaska and Michigan have so much in common, with the huntin’ and the fishin’ and the hockey moms, and just the hardworking, patriotic Americans who are here,” Palin said.

    Wearing a “Palin Power” bumper sticker across her red sweat shirt, 72-year-old Rachel Baragar praised Palin’s honesty and down-to-earth manner.

    “She could be your next door neighbor,” said Baragar, of Caledonia.

    The memoir was released Tuesday but has topped best-seller lists for weeks. At the Barnes & Noble, about 1,000 orange wristbands were handed out, allowing wearers to get two copies autographed by Palin at the three-hour signing event.

    College students Megan Patzky of Racine, Wis., and Sarah Cranmer of Chicago waited in line overnight and skipped their Wednesday classes at nearby Calvin College to get an autograph. Patzky planned to give the signed book to her father for Christmas.

    After standing in the cold all night, Patzky and Cranmer were happy to get into the mall around 6:15 a.m. “We were hoping that someone would start selling coffee, but nobody did,” Patzky joked.

    “Going Rogue” follows Palin from childhood to her departure last summer as Alaska governor. The title refers to her independent streak as a candidate, stemming from complaints within the campaign of GOP presidential nominee John McCain that she had gone “rogue” by disagreeing with the campaign’s decision to pull out of Michigan last October.

    McCain halted his campaign in the state after internal polls showed Obama approaching a double-digit lead. Palin publicly disagreed with the move and said she’d “sure love to get to run to Michigan” to make sure residents know the Republicans had not given up in the state.

    Before the pullout, Palin had campaigned with McCain in Grand Rapids. Her three-week book tour is expected to largely mirror the 2008 race with stops in cities such as Noblesville, Ind.; Washington, Pa., and Rochester, N.Y.

    Many of those waiting at the Michigan bookstore said they would vote for Palin if she decides to run for president in 2012.

    “I believe she’s a good, strong person to do the things we need to do in this country,” said David Zak, 70, who drove about two hours to see Palin. “I like her Christian philosophy. I like that she’s pro-life. I believe she can do what needs to be done to get ahead.”

    FAA: Flights Delayed Across Country Because of Computer Problems

  49. samiam60 says:

    Hey FAA, you might want to check for Chinese Hackers this morning.
    Obama might have given them some codes.

  50. samiam60 says:

    DEVELOPING: A computer glitch is causing flights to be delayed nationwide Thursday, the Federal Aviation Administration confirmed.

    The problems are with retrieving flight plans from FAA computer systems, a spokeswoman said.

    “We are having a problem processing flight plan information,” the FAA’s Kathleen Bergen explained in a prepared statement. “We are investigating the cause of the problem. We are processing flight plans manually and expect some delays.”

    The technical difficulties weren’t affecting air traffic control’s systems, she said.

    Controllers “have radio coverage and communications with planes,” according to Bergen.

    The problems were first reported Thursday morning out of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta.

    One passenger reported hearing a gate agent’s announcement that the computer troubles weren’t letting pilots access flight plans and were preventing any planes from taking off.,2933,575707,00.html

    Senate on Brink of Historic Health Care Battle

  52. samiam60 says:

    WASHINGTON — After months of maneuvering, the Senate stands at the brink of a historic battle over health care with President Barack Obama and his allies on one side and Republicans, outnumbered but unflinching, on the other.

    “Now it’s America’s turn, and this will not be a short debate,” Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, warned after Majority Leader Harry Reid unveiled long-awaited legislation Wednesday night to extend coverage to 30 million more Americans and force insurance companies to take all comers.

    “Higher premiums, tax increases and Medicare cuts to pay for more government. The American people know that is not reform,” McConnell said.

    The Congressional Budget Office targets the 10-year cost of the health care bill at $849 billion, funded with new and higher taxes and Medicare cuts that ultimately also would cut the deficit by an estimated $127 billion, bringing the total cost of the legislation to just under $1 trillion.

    Reid, D-Nev., wrote the legislation with White House aides during weeks of secretive negotiations, selecting elements from two committee-passed bills with the aim of securing the necessary 60 votes in a Senate debate that will be decisive for Obama’s health care agenda.

    “From Day One, our goal has been to enact legislation that offers stability and security to those who have insurance and affordable coverage to those who don’t, and that lowers costs for families, businesses and governments across the country,” Obama said. Reid’s bill “meets those principles,” the president said.

    Aides said the mammoth, 2,074-page bill would reduce deficits by $127 billion over a decade, citing estimates by the Congressional Budget Office. For the first time most Americans would be required to carry health insurance, and the bill would provide hundreds of billions of dollars in subsidies to help those with lower incomes afford coverage.

    Employers would not be required to offer coverage, but medium and large companies would pay a fee if the government ends up subsidizing employees’ insurance.

    Reid released his legislation more than a week after the House approved its more expensive version of the health care bill on a near party-line vote of 220-215.

    Reid pointedly declined to claim the 60 votes needed to clear a must-pass procedural hurdle before debate can begin. That vote could take place Saturday.

    Democrats hold 58 seats in the Senate and two independents generally vote with them, but several moderate Democrats — Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas — have yet to commit to allowing debate to begin. Reid met privately with the three before releasing his bill Wednesday, and Nelson later issued a statement strongly suggesting he would support fellow Democrats on the procedural vote.

    Landrieu said she wanted more information about the bill before making a final decision, while Lincoln, the only one of the three who faces re-election next year, told reporters, “We’ll wait and see.”

    If this weekend’s vote succeeds, it would be followed by weeks — if not more — of unpredictable maneuvering on the Senate floor, where Reid and his allies will seek to incorporate changes sought by Democrats and repel attempts by Republicans to defeat the legislation and inflict a significant political defeat on the president.

    Beginning in 2014, Reid’s bill would set up new insurance marketplaces called exchanges, primarily for those who now have a hard time getting or keeping coverage. Consumers would have the choice of purchasing government-sold insurance, an attempt to hold down prices charged by private insurers.

    The bill has many similarities to the House-passed measure, but with some important differences.

    Reid called for increasing the Medicare payroll tax by half a percentage point to 1.95 percent on income over $200,000 a year for individuals, $250,000 for couples.

    He also included a tax on high-value insurance policies, meant to curb the appetite for expensive care.

    The House bill contains neither of those two provisions, relying on an income tax surcharge on the wealthy to finance an expansion of coverage.

    On a controversial issue that threatened to derail the House legislation, Reid would allow the new government insurance plan to cover abortions and would let companies that receive federal funds offer insurance plans that include abortion coverage.

    A provision in the House bill — passed at the insistence of anti-abortion Democrats over strenuous objections from liberals — banned both those things. Reid attempted to tighten up the abortion language to strictly segregate private from public funds, but that did not pass muster with the National Right to Life Committee, which issued a statement Wednesday night calling the language “completely unacceptable.”

    Senate bill weighs in at 2,074 pages

    In the Battle of the Health Bills, the Senate wins out, bulk-wise – weighing in at 2,074 pages.

    The House health reform bill was a mere 1,990 pages when introduced.

    That means the Senate bill — like the one in the House — runs more pages than War and Peace, and has nearly five times as many words as the Torah.

    The table of contents alone is 14 pages.

    “Read the bill!” was a rallying cry of some health reform opponents over the summer. And if Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) gets his way, senators will get a chance to hear every word of it. He’s threatening to the read the legislation from start to finish, which by some estimates could take as long as 48 hours

    Jobless Claims Trend Shows Labor Market in Slow Heal

    The number of U.S. workers filing new applications for jobless insurance was unchanged last week, but the four-week moving average of claims dropped to its lowest in almost a year, according to government data on Thursday that showed the labor market slowly healing.

    Initial claims for state unemployment benefits were flat at a seasonally adjusted 505,000 in the week ended Nov. 14, the Labor Department said. New claims have been grinding lower in recent weeks, indicating a slowdown in the pace of layoffs. Analysts polled by Reuters had forecast new claims edging up to 505,000 last week from a previously reported 502,000.

    New jobless claims are being watched for signs of when job losses might bottom. Applications have dropped significantly from March’s lofty levels, but remain above the 400,000 mark that analysts say would signal payrolls growth.

    The four-week moving average for new claims fell 6,500 to 514,000 last week, the lowest since November last year and declining for the 11th straight week.

    The four-week moving average is considered a better gauge of underlying trends as it irons out week-to-week volatility.

    The number of workers still collecting benefits after an initial week of aid dropped 39,000 to 5.61 million in the week ended Nov. 7, the lowest since March. This was in line with market expectations for 5.60 million.

    So-called continuing claims have fallen from a peak of 6.9 million in June and the drop is likely the combination of fewer new applications for unemployment aid and many jobless workers exhausting their benefits.

    The four-week moving average of continuing claims declined 83,500 to 5.71 million. The insured unemployment rate, which measures the percentage of the insured labor force that is jobless, was steady at 4.3 percent in the week ended Nov. 7.

    Jesse Jackson: ‘You can’t vote against healthcare and call yourself a black man’
    By Mike Soraghan – 11/18/09

    The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Wednesday night criticized Rep. Artur Davis (D-Ala.) for voting against the Democrats’ signature healthcare bill.

    “We even have blacks voting against the healthcare bill,” Jackson said at a reception Wednesday night. “You can’t vote against healthcare and call yourself a black man.”

    The remark stirred a murmur at the reception, held by the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Foundation as part of a series of events revolving around the 25th anniversary of Jackson’s run for president. Several CBC members were in attendance, including Chairwoman Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), who’d introduced Jackson.

    Davis, who is running for governor, is the only black member of Congress from Alabama.

    He is also the only member of the CBC to have voted against the healthcare bill earlier this month.

    Davis referred to Jackson’s 1988 run for president in a statement, issued through his office, that said he would not engage Jackson on his criticism.

    “One of the reasons that I like and admire Rev. Jesse Jackson is that 21 years ago he inspired the idea that a black politician would not be judged simply as a black leader,” Davis’s statement said. “The best way to honor Rev. Jackson’s legacy is to decline to engage in an argument with him that begins and ends with race.”

    Jackson said later that he “didn’t call anybody by name and I won’t.”

    He added that he wasn’t saying that black lawmakers must vote a certain way. Instead, they should vote the interests of the people in their districts, and he said the healthcare bill would help Alabama because it’s one of the poorest states in the country.

    “The poorest people need healthcare protection,” Jackson said. “They have the highest infant mortality and the lowest life expectancy. They’re dying from lack of access.”

    Other members of the CBC found no fault in Jackson’s words. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) was in the audience. He called Jackson’s criticism of Davis “accurate,” but said he did not hear Jackson say “You can’t vote against healthcare and call yourself a black man.”

    “If it is an issue that disproportionately impacts black folks, race has to be considered,” Cleaver said. Jackson, he added, “is expected by his constituency to call balls and strikes.”

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) called the remarks “vintage Jesse Jackson,” but said Davis’s vote against healthcare was consistent with a voting record more conservative than many CBC members.

    “Artur Davis has a more conservative constituency,” Waters said. “Since he’s running for governor of Alabama, he reflects an even more conservative constituency.”

    Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Texas) said each man was doing what he considered the right thing.

    “People have a right to vote their constituency, and people have a right to speak their conscience,” Jackson-Lee said. “Both happened.”

    Davis’s Democratic primary opponent, Agriculture Commissioner Ron Sparks, highlighted Davis’s status as the lone African-American vote against the bill.

    “He was the only Black Caucus member to vote against it. I don’t get it,” Sparks said last week, according to The Associated Press. Sparks is white.

    Davis said he voted against the healthcare bill because “House leadership’s approach is not the best we can do.” He said he preferred a version passed by the Senate Finance Committee because it reduces subsidization of the healthcare industry, taxes high-value health plans instead of wealthy people, and is more effective in getting employers to help with health coverage.

    Davis has countered that Sparks’s position on healthcare has changed over time, saying he’s being “deliberately dishonest.”

    The primary will be June 1. All of the GOP candidates for governor have been critical of the healthcare legislation, according to the AP.

    Good article on Jackson, Tellit.

    Société Générale tells clients how to prepare for potential ‘global collapse’
    Société Générale has advised clients to be ready for a possible “global economic collapse” over the next two years, mapping a strategy of defensive investments to avoid wealth destruction.

    In a report entitled “Worst-case debt scenario”, the bank’s asset team said state rescue packages over the last year have merely transferred private liabilities onto sagging sovereign shoulders, creating a fresh set of problems.

    Overall debt is still far too high in almost all rich economies as a share of GDP (350pc in the US), whether public or private. It must be reduced by the hard slog of “deleveraging”, for years.

    ‘Debt levels risk another crisis’ “As yet, nobody can say with any certainty whether we have in fact escaped the prospect of a global economic collapse,” said the 68-page report, headed by asset chief Daniel Fermon. It is an exploration of the dangers, not a forecast.

    Under the French bank’s “Bear Case” scenario (the gloomiest of three possible outcomes), the dollar would slide further and global equities would retest the March lows. Property prices would tumble again. Oil would fall back to $50 in 2010.

    Governments have already shot their fiscal bolts. Even without fresh spending, public debt would explode within two years to 105pc of GDP in the UK, 125pc in the US and the eurozone, and 270pc in Japan. Worldwide state debt would reach $45 trillion, up two-and-a-half times in a decade.

    (UK figures look low because debt started from a low base. Mr Ferman said the UK would converge with Europe at 130pc of GDP by 2015 under the bear case).

    The underlying debt burden is greater than it was after the Second World War, when nominal levels looked similar. Ageing populations will make it harder to erode debt through growth. “High public debt looks entirely unsustainable in the long run. We have almost reached a point of no return for government debt,” it said.

    Inflating debt away might be seen by some governments as a lesser of evils.

    If so, gold would go “up, and up, and up” as the only safe haven from fiat paper money. Private debt is also crippling. Even if the US savings rate stabilises at 7pc, and all of it is used to pay down debt, it will still take nine years for households to reduce debt/income ratios to the safe levels of the 1980s.

    The bank said the current crisis displays “compelling similarities” with Japan during its Lost Decade (or two), with a big difference: Japan was able to stay afloat by exporting into a robust global economy and by letting the yen fall. It is not possible for half the world to pursue this strategy at the same time.

    SocGen advises bears to sell the dollar and to “short” cyclical equities such as technology, auto, and travel to avoid being caught in the “inherent deflationary spiral”. Emerging markets would not be spared. Paradoxically, they are more leveraged to the US growth than Wall Street itself. Farm commodities would hold up well, led by sugar.

    Mr Fermon said junk bonds would lose 31pc of their value in 2010 alone. However, sovereign bonds would “generate turbo-charged returns” mimicking the secular slide in yields seen in Japan as the slump ground on. At one point Japan’s 10-year yield dropped to 0.40pc. The Fed would hold down yields by purchasing more bonds. The European Central Bank would do less, for political reasons.

    SocGen’s case for buying sovereign bonds is controversial. A number of funds doubt whether the Japan scenario will be repeated, not least because Tokyo itself may be on the cusp of a debt compound crisis.

    Mr Fermon said his report had electrified clients on both sides of the Atlantic. “Everybody wants to know what the impact will be. A lot of hedge funds and bankers are worried,” he said.
