Obama stimulated a single week loss of 31,000 more voters’ jobs; continues to spend like a mad man

Mr Hopey-Changy strikes again… this just in:

Feb. 18 (Bloomberg) — The number of Americans filing first-time claims for unemployment insurance unexpectedly increased last week, pointing to an uneven recovery in the labor market.

Let’s see… has there been an ‘expected’ job loss report that anyone can remember? The reasons of increasing unemployment is a bloody mystery?

When Obama’s crew says ‘unexpected’ it means Obama’s labor department experts are as clueless as he is that spending stimulus on the public sector and ignoring the private sector does not create jobs… it creates job loss.

Anyone with half a brain can figure it out.

Meanwhile Obama plans to launch a ‘Deficit Panel’ and what will that cost? Deficit Panel? hahaha!!! That’s a laugh!!!

Government Spending less than income Revenues
reverses a Government Budget Deficit

duhhh…

Can you spell Balance Sheet, Progressives?

Every business owner can.

    Jobless numbers higher that expected…

    I expected it. How is it that a mere mortal could figure this out and the Messiah Obutthole can’t?

  2. Foxwood says:

    If you know ANYTHING about economics, you know that what Obutthole and Congress are doing will not stimulate anything but their agenda. There is one of two things happening:

    1) They don’t know what they are doing.

    b) They know what they are doing, and it is evil.

    You don’t increase taxes on the employers. Every time you do, people get laid off. So:

    1) That makes them STUPID!

    or

    b) They want people unemployed, and that is EVIL!

    Austan Goolsbee, the WH economics advisor is on TV. I wonder what economics school he went to?

  10. Foxwood says:

    Austan Dean Goolsbee (born August 18, 1969) is an American economist, currently serving under President Barack Obama as a member of the Council of Economic Advisers[1] and as chief economist of a new federal panel, the President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board chaired by Paul Volcker.[2] Goolsbee is on leave from the University of Chicago where he is the Robert P. Gwinn Professor of Economics at the Booth School of Business.
    Contents

    Goolsbee graduated from Milton Academy and received both his B.A. summa cum laude and M.A. in economics from Yale University in 1991 and went on to receive his Ph.D. in economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1995. He was an Alfred P. Sloan Fellow (2000-02) and Fulbright Scholar (2006-07).[3] At Yale, he was a member of the Yale Political Union, the improv comedy troupe Just Add Water, Skull and Bones and the Yale Debate Association. He and partner David Gray were name the APDA National Debate Team of the Year in 1991. He and partner Dahlia Lithwick were runners up for the award in 1990. As a high school student, Goolsbee won the national championship in extemporaneous speaking in 1987.

    Our economy took a huge hit directly AFTER 9/11/01….Within 2 years our job market and economy recovered quite well, considering…

    This is a sampling of jobs created under the Bush presidency….The data is from August 2003 through January 2007….These jobs were created right before the democrats “took over” congress in January of 07.

    I’ve posted this site directly FROM the White House site:

    http://georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/news/releases/2007/01/20070105.html

    For Immediate Release
    Office of the Press Secretary
    January 5, 2007

    Fact Sheet: Job Creation Continues – More Than 7.2 Million Jobs Created Since August 2003

    RSS Feed White House News
    en Español En Español

    Fact sheet In Focus: Jobs and Economy

    Today, The Government Released New Jobs Figures – 167,000 Jobs Created In December. This number is much higher than market expectations. In addition, employment estimates for October and November were revised up, adding 29,000 jobs. Since August 2003, more than 7.2 million jobs have been created more jobs than the European Union and Japan combined. Our economy has now added jobs for 40 straight months.

    American Workers Are Finding Jobs And Taking Home More Pay

    * Real Wages Rose 2.5 Percent Over The Past 12 Months Ending In November. This means an extra $1,420 for the typical family of four with two wage earners.
    * Real After-Tax Income Per Person Has Risen By 9.6 Percent $2,840 Since The President Took Office.
    * Employment Increased In All But One State Over The Past 12 Months Ending In November.
    * The National Unemployment Rate Remains Low At 4.5 Percent. This is well below the 5.1 percent average rate for 2005, and below the average of each of the past four decades.
    * The U.S. Has Grown Faster Than Any Other G-7 Industrialized Nation Over The Past Four Quarters.

    The President Has An Aggressive Agenda To Keep Our Economy Strong And Growing

    This Week, President Bush Announced His Proposal For A Balanced Budget By 2012. On February 5, the Administration will present its five-year budget proposal, which will reduce the budget deficit over the next five years and achieve balance while addressing the Nation’s most critical needs, including support for the Global War on Terror and sustaining the strength of our economy through permanent tax relief. The President knows unchecked growth of entitlement programs remains the principal challenge to restraining Federal spending, and he will continue working with Congress to address this challenge.

    * The President Also Called For Comprehensive Earmark Reform. The President has called for both political parties to work together on comprehensive earmark reform that includes full disclosure for each earmark and cutting the number and cost of all earmarks by at least half.

    The President Will Continue Pushing For Line-Item Veto Authority To Target Unnecessary And Wasteful Spending. A President can use the line-item veto to help reduce the budget deficit and discourage the practice of earmarking Federal funds for projects that are wasteful, duplicative, or unneeded. Congress should pass legislation giving the President the authority to use this important tool, already held by 43 of the Nation’s governors.

    The President Wants To Keep Our Economy Growing By Making His Tax Relief Permanent. In December, the President signed legislation that extends key tax relief measures such as the deductibility of tuition and higher education expenses and the research and development tax credit. To keep our economy growing, the President calls on Congress to make tax rate reductions and other pro-growth tax relief permanent. The President also supports making permanent the Child Tax credit and the marriage penalty relief.

    The President’s Policies Are Helping Make Health Care Affordable And Accessible For More Americans. In December, the President signed legislation to bring Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) within reach for more Americans. HSAs allow people to save money for health care tax-free, and to take these accounts with them if they move from job to job. In addition, strong competition is helping the Medicare prescription drug program provide beneficiaries access to the drugs they need at costs much lower than originally forecast.

    The President’s Advanced Energy Initiative (AEI) Promotes Alternatives To Oil And Clean, Domestic, Affordable Ways To Power Our Homes And Vehicles. The President is funding new technology to create new sources of fuel, build a reliable domestic supply of alternative fuels, develop new domestic energy resources, increase efficiency, and reduce air pollution and greenhouse gases. In December, the President signed legislation that will extend tax credits for investment in renewable electricity resources, encourage the development of clean coal technology and renewable fuels, and help promote new energy efficient technologies.

    Backtracking through wordpress I can’t find anything wrong.

  24. samiam60 says:

    Here are the unemployment figures 1948-2008….Read them and then tell me Bush had the lowest numbers in “history.”

    Obama had an unemployment rate of 10.2% just a few weeks ago….Can’t blame Bush on that!

    http://uspolitics.about.com/od/thefederalbudget/ig/Political-Economic-Measures/Historical-Unemployment-Rate.htm

    One sentence explains it all…..

    “””Since 1948, the U.S. unemployment rate has exceeded 10% once; once it was 9%. In all other post-WWII recessions, unemployment has peaked at less than 8%.”””

    Let’s see…….Who WAS president during the 10% rate???…………..Hmmmmmmm

    Obama……….Correct answer

    If you look at the chart, you see that after the Tax Relief & Reconciliation Act of 2003, joblessness decreased. When the minimum wage act was put in play by the DEMOCRATIC party, joblessness increased continually to today.

    “Washington right now is broken and the country is in deep trouble unless it attacks ballooning federal deficits.”

    When asked about the political climate across the country he stated that “we understand why they’re angry we get it.”

    Speaking of intense partisanship in the capital he stated that he has never “seen it this dysfunctional”

    No Joe I don’t think you and Barrack get it at all.

  33. samiam60 says:

    The ONLY jobs democrats “create” are in the public sector…..Without private industry, who pays the public sector employees????

    The taxpayer!

    Without private industry, there would be no money to pay public sector employees! Our rate of growth would be stagnant.

    Harding and Coolidge, both republican presidents, inherited a depression from Wilson, a democrat……The reason there is no talk of that depression is simple…..Harding and Coolidge let the private sector work, the depression lasted only months, not years.

    Here is an excerpt from an article referring to the Depression of 1920…..I can’t post the site. It is a Microsoft Word file without a link.

    Bernanke-Carey (1994) developed and tested a model of wage adjustment and aggregate supply for the international Great Depression. The present paper applies their model to the other severe pre-war depression, namely the depression of 1920-21. Despite its brevity, this depression was extraordinarily sharp: the U.S. price level declined by over 40% in a single year (Friedman-Schwartz, 1963), and output and employment likewise fell considerably. The Bernanke-Carey framework would lead us to suspect that wages were considerably more flexible during this period than during the Great Depression, and this paper confirms this implication. However, this period seems to poorly fit Bernanke-Carey’s aggregate supply equation, probably because the recovery happened so quickly and the best available data are only biannual.

    1. The Question and the Data
    Bernanke-Carey (1994) examines the so-called “aggregate supply puzzle” of the Great Depression. How is it possible that the real wage could be so slow to adjust when unemployment was so severe? The present paper compounds rather than solves this puzzle: for it suggests that just one decade prior to the Great Depression, the United States’ economy demonstrated a remarkable degree of wage flexibility.
    The core of this paper re-estimates the reduced-form wage adjustment and aggregate supply equations from Bernanke-Carey (1994). In their paper, Bernanke-Carey used annual aggregate international data for twenty-two countries during the years 1931-1936. The present paper applies the same model to different industries within the United States during the period from 1919 to 1923. Although this is a short time span, there were simply extraordinary movements in macroeconomic variables during this period that make it a particularly attractive test of the Bernanke-Carey model.
    In one crucial respect, the depression of 1920-21 was actually more severe than the Great Depression itself: there was a rapid decline in the price level of between forty and fifty percent within the course of a single year. As Friedman and Schwartz (1963) explain, “From their peak in May [1920], wholesale prices declined moderately for a couple of months, and then collapsed. By June 1921, they had fallen to 56 per cent of their level in May 1920. More than three-quarters of the decline took place in the six months from August 1920 to February 1921. This is, by all odds, the sharpest price decline covered by our money series, either before or since that date and perhaps also in the whole history of the United States.” (1963, pp.232-233.) The wholesale price index during the Great Depression took about three years to fall by the same amount.

  34. Foxwood says:

    It’s a matter of history, Sami. And guess what? They don’t teach history in the public school system or college anymore. What they teach is Regressive Liberal history otherwise known as indoctrination.

  35. AFVET says:

  40. LisaInTX says:

    Morning everyone….a juicy tidbit to share…
    Can we say GOOD BYE to our House & CONGRESS now?? Seems King Nobama has it all under control!
    Obama sets up deficit panel without help from Hill
    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama signed an order Thursday unilaterally creating a bipartisan commission to rein in unruly deficits after Congress rejected a similar body with considerably more enforcement power.

    In making the announcement, Obama said that unless lawmakers put aside partisan differences, the continuing red-ink trend could “hobble our economy.”

    The federal deficit hit a record $1.4 trillion last year and could grow larger this year as the struggling economy puts a big dent in tax collections.

    “It will cloud our future and it will saddle every child in America with an intolerable burden,” he said before signing an executive order establishing the commission.

    Obama signed the executive order a few hours before flying to Colorado and Nevada to help incumbent Democrats save their seats in the Senate. He’ll appear in Nevada for Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid. Like Obama and other Democrats, Reid has been feeling the sting of the stunning electoral upset by Republican Scott Brown in the Massachusetts election to choose a successor for the late Sen. Edward Kennedy

    This is becoming well beyond laughable.

    This “commission” Barry has appointed is nothing more than his scapegoat to say that He was not the one to raise taxes.

    What I’m saying is, if you want to show a bunch of gangbangers who the boss is in a fight, you knock out the biggest guy there. The rest of the hoods will think twice about messing with you.

    Texas is the biggest (will make the most trouble) guy.

  59. ohiobelle says:

    It’s almost pretty clear what happened… IRS threatened to take this guys home. Out of desperation and stupidity this guy borrowed his buddys plane and flew it into the 7 story building… after burning his house down. He wasn’t going to let the IRS take everything he owns.

    You mean Moi?

    Obutthole hasn’t had time to spin it yet, Rose.

    they guy blamed Bush? Hahahahaha

  79. LisaInTX says:

    Hey Rose
    Seems King Nobama has created his own ‘congress’ calling it a ‘ deficit commission’ and plans to use them to continue his out of control spending spree….

  80. samiam60 says:

    Am I reading this right, the guy blamed Bush in the suicide note?

    Is everyone on the Blame Bush Bandwagon or what.

  81. rosehips says:

    I blame Bush and Microsoft for the loss of my job. I blame my ex husband for making me so bitter. I blame conservatives for trying to take all my entitlements away. oh woe is me. Does anyone know what the highest building in Redmond, WA is? Hahahahahaa

  82. rosehips says:

    hey lisa rebel gurl!!!!

    Having fun Rose!

    Good morning!

  86. samiam60 says:

    Reports coming in say the IRS was not in that building.

  87. Foxwood says:

    Oops! Good morning Lisa! Forgive my manners!

  88. Foxwood says:

    Funny how the news changes…

  89. rosehips says:

    morning foxy, sami. How are my two favorite males today?

    foxy, glad you are having fun on my account. I am happy to provide an outlet for your enjoyment!

    and kudos on the correct spelling of oops! 😉

    Our economy took a huge hit directly AFTER 9/11/01….Within 2 years our job market and economy recovered quite well, considering…

    This is a sampling of jobs created under the Bush presidency….The data is from August 2003 through January 2007….These jobs were created right before the democrats “took over” congress in January of 07.

    I’ve posted this site directly FROM the White House site:

    oh c’mon sami. were you conscious during the autumn of 08????

  92. ohiobelle says:

    Fox just read his manifesto. Sounds like it he did intend to do this. Wouldn’t this be domestic terrorism? Tim McVey said he did what he did because of our government and that was considered a domestic terrorism attack.

    I wonder why he left his wife and daughter in the burning house?

    Rose,

    Hi there, and hi Lisa as well, I can understand your blaming Bush for your job loss. Do you blame Obama for your continued Unemployment?

  95. rosehips says:

    he left his wife and daughter in the house??? belle, were they killed?

    yes, this would absolutely be considered an act of domestic terrorism, imo. It likely is not a conspiracy and he may not even have plotted it much ahead of time. The guy snapped. It is going to happen a lot more. As soon as they stop issuing extensions on unemployment, chaos will erupt. Perhaps that is why police chiefs are quitting. They are preparing for the day when the unemployed are thrown under the bus.

    Fact Sheet: Job Creation Continues – More Than 7.2 Million Jobs Created Since August 2003

    RSS Feed White House News
    en Español En Español

    Fact sheet In Focus: Jobs and Economy

    Today, The Government Released New Jobs Figures – 167,000 Jobs Created In December. This number is much higher than market expectations. In addition, employment estimates for October and November were revised up, adding 29,000 jobs. Since August 2003, more than 7.2 million jobs have been created more jobs than the European Union and Japan combined. Our economy has now added jobs for 40 straight months.

    American Workers Are Finding Jobs And Taking Home More Pay

    * Real Wages Rose 2.5 Percent Over The Past 12 Months Ending In November. This means an extra $1,420 for the typical family of four with two wage earners.
    * Real After-Tax Income Per Person Has Risen By 9.6 Percent $2,840 Since The President Took Office.
    * Employment Increased In All But One State Over The Past 12 Months Ending In November.
    * The National Unemployment Rate Remains Low At 4.5 Percent. This is well below the 5.1 percent average rate for 2005, and below the average of each of the past four decades.
    * The U.S. Has Grown Faster Than Any Other G-7 Industrialized Nation Over The Past Four Quarters.

    The President Has An Aggressive Agenda To Keep Our Economy Strong And Growing

    This Week, President Bush Announced His Proposal For A Balanced Budget By 2012. On February 5, the Administration will present its five-year budget proposal, which will reduce the budget deficit over the next five years and achieve balance while addressing the Nation’s most critical needs, including support for the Global War on Terror and sustaining the strength of our economy through permanent tax relief. The President knows unchecked growth of entitlement programs remains the principal challenge to restraining Federal spending, and he will continue working with Congress to address this challenge.

    * The President Also Called For Comprehensive Earmark Reform. The President has called for both political parties to work together on comprehensive earmark reform that includes full disclosure for each earmark and cutting the number and cost of all earmarks by at least half.

    The President Will Continue Pushing For Line-Item Veto Authority To Target Unnecessary And Wasteful Spending. A President can use the line-item veto to help reduce the budget deficit and discourage the practice of earmarking Federal funds for projects that are wasteful, duplicative, or unneeded. Congress should pass legislation giving the President the authority to use this important tool, already held by 43 of the Nation’s governors.

    The President Wants To Keep Our Economy Growing By Making His Tax Relief Permanent. In December, the President signed legislation that extends key tax relief measures such as the deductibility of tuition and higher education expenses and the research and development tax credit. To keep our economy growing, the President calls on Congress to make tax rate reductions and other pro-growth tax relief permanent. The President also supports making permanent the Child Tax credit and the marriage penalty relief.

    The President’s Policies Are Helping Make Health Care Affordable And Accessible For More Americans. In December, the President signed legislation to bring Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) within reach for more Americans. HSAs allow people to save money for health care tax-free, and to take these accounts with them if they move from job to job. In addition, strong competition is helping the Medicare prescription drug program provide beneficiaries access to the drugs they need at costs much lower than originally forecast.

    The President’s Advanced Energy Initiative (AEI) Promotes Alternatives To Oil And Clean, Domestic, Affordable Ways To Power Our Homes And Vehicles. The President is funding new technology to create new sources of fuel, build a reliable domestic supply of alternative fuels, develop new domestic energy resources, increase efficiency, and reduce air pollution and greenhouse gases. In December, the President signed legislation that will extend tax credits for investment in renewable electricity resources, encourage the development of clean coal technology and renewable fuels, and help promote new energy efficient technologies.

    Just a fly-by. I’ve been up most of the night. I am going to hit the hay and get back to all of you later. Hmmmm Plane – building – IRS – why didn’t it happen at the place that takes in my returns. It’s not fair. We should all get an extension. Actually we need to move from property to income taxes all around. What do you think of that? Laters.

    Rose–LOL….speaking of “Rebel” i just purchased a 1986 motorcycle Honda Rebel…..I was born to be wild!!! ‘Hog Wild that is”… down here in Texas…hahaha
    I’m calling her the Black Mamba….heeeee

    LMAO at all those you “blame” for your life! hahahaha —nice lineup girlfriend…heee

  105. rosehips says:

    black mamba? oh lisa, you are a rebel gurl. hehehee wheeeeee.

    ride girl ride!

  106. LisaInTX says:

    Rose
    Sorry girl, but when I hear the term “Green”, I see nothing but a wasteland of red….pissed off taxpayers and blood from all those turnips the government is wringing to get more out of…

  107. LisaInTX says:

    Yeah—the little mamba be sweet….being vertically challenged posed many problems til she was found….hahahha
    now we be a family of bikers….hahahaa
    our oldest and my hubby have Harley’s, our Army son is riding a crotch rocket Suzuki, and now I have my little Rebel…

  108. rosehips says:

    oh lisa, don’t be so cynical. we have to start producing more in this country. We got to wean ourselves off oil and coal and, imo, nukes are just too iffy, both economically and for national security reasons.

    I realize my ideals often would reduce jobs. If we conserve energy, we lose jobs and revenue. But if we replace those jobs and revenue with green industry like wind and solar, geothermal, etc, we can attack two very important problems in our country. I’m sure there are those who think me naive, but hey, I’m a dreamer.

  109. LisaInTX says:

  110. Foxwood says:

    Looking at the chart in the URL, you see that after the Tax Relief & Reconciliation Act of 2003, joblessness decreased. When the minimum wage act was put in play by the DEMOCRATIC Congress, joblessness increased continually to today. The Democrats took congress in 2007. Joblessness increase slowly after that, then Obutthole took what is now called the Offal Office, and joblessness increased dramatically.

    lisa, I’m a bit afraid of motorcycles. A scooter would be more my style. But it would be cool to ride an Indian motorcycle. That’s what I’d like.

    I actually talked to the owner of the “Ohm Ranger” yesterday. It’s a converted Ford Ranger electric hybrid. I did a couple of ireports on it. One of them was my second highest all time views for my ireports. Since the day I saw the truck, I have wanted it for my own. He is actually offering it to me for a reasonable price. It is a namesake vehicle for me and somehow I feel like it was meant to be mine. But it still is not cheap so I may have to keep dreaming for a while. sigh

    on that Stack guy FOX read excerpts from a 6 page manifesto he wrote as a suicide rant.

    From what I heard of it, Stack was insane and was also a conservative nut job.

    It sounded like this Stack guy got some of his phrases from watching Glenn Beck, whom I admire for the most part.

    You can google it. He admits he left out global warming history and that we’ve been cooling since 1995.

    You can’t believe his facts because they are not facts. This is the same scientist AlGore got his lies from.

  134. samiam60 says:

    Lisa,

    Dare I ask how you might have gotten the nick name of Rebel?

  135. LisaInTX says:

    Sami
    I hate whips—seen to many cruel bastards out there abuse horses with them…..I got purple because it seemed less threatening IMO…heeee
    I tie a piece of a plastic bag on the end to help direct the horse with sound and sight….that in my mind, shows it is nothing more than an extension of my arm to the horse and not a weapon to use against them
    I’m sure many will think I’m nuts doing training this way—but it ‘feels right’ between me and the horse and that is all that matters in my mind….

  136. samiam60 says:

    Yes it is the right thing to do Lisa. I hate people that abuse animals and especially Horses. To me they are magnificent.

    While stationed in Palma, Spain I got my Arse whipped real good by some guy I saw abusing a horse. I could not stop myself when I saw the abuse and long story short, the guy was a lot bigger than I thought from a far. The horse kinda looked at me as if to say, Thanks for nothing pal.

  137. LisaInTX says:

    Sami
    I got the name when I was a tomboy pitching for the boy’s softball team and could stike most of the opposing players out—Man did they hate me, a mere girl! hahaha–
    Then years later while we lived in California, I worked for Chrysler First Financial….many would call the office and if I answered the phone, they ALWAYS asked what state they were calling…hahahaha—then my co-workers started calling me their Texas Rebel and it just stuck….

  138. Foxwood says:

  142. samiam60 says:

    Cute story Lisa. Funny how we get nick names.

    My neighbor lady/friend/girl friend/ ex girl friend gave me a new nick name just the other day.

    I am not really crazy about “Bastard” but I guess I had it coming. Ok, so I forgot to pick her up from her Doctor visit. Gosh, people do forget things sometimes ya know.

  143. LisaInTX says:

    Sami
    That was good that you tried to stop the a-hole from hurting the horse even if it cost you some dignity to do it….maybe hopefully, the man later realized that he was wrong??? Or maybe the horse kicked his ass for you—lol, Arabian horses being free spirited, do not tolerate abuse well—and smart people learn to ASK them to do what they want and NOT force them….heeeee

    I decided not to get up. Actually I couldn’t get up. nuff said, its embarrassing.

    “I got the name when I was a tomboy pitching for the boy’s softball team”

    I played soccer before it was popular in the US (1960s) and the nickname I got stuck with was “sexy legs”. Of course, those of you that know who I am, know the other reason for the name.

  148. LisaInTX says:

    Fox
    You are so right on. Rake the shin, stomp the toe, then elbow to the face and he’ll fall like a rock! Least that worked on my hubby during practice….he still talks about that day when he claims I beat him up…hahahaha

    As I see it, God never gives us more than we can handle. That this man chose to do what he did maybe understandable, but it is uncalled for as he endangered so many by his insanity actions.
    Material things can be replaced, but not the lives of those taken in these moments of insanity.

  154. LisaInTX says:

    Fox
    Oh YES!! I read everyone of those books—that was my dream then to own my own black stallion and now I have been blessed with two.
    (Well I had one gelded, but he’s still all boy—)

  155. Foxwood says:

    “Lisa says: Practice, yah right.”

    Sami, I bought a seabag from army surplus (a long time ago) and filled it with rice, and hung it from the rafters of my house in the garage. At the top of the bag I added two ropes (one at head level and one at ribcage level) with tennis balls at the end of the rope. It was my punching bag. It was suspended from the ceiling in the garage from a bungee cored at two points (causes it to unwind when it whinds up).

    When you hit it with a hook (jab, cross, hook) it winds up. Then it unwinds. You have to “bob and weave” or block the punch.

    Makes for good practice.

  156. LisaInTX says:

    Sami
    Going back to work will teach her a lesson!! LOL
    You could just tell her you had a
    ‘senior moment” and please forgive you—then when she agrees, you can ask her “Huh, what are you talking about”…hahahaha

  157. rosehips says:

    have you seen this? This dutch guy just won gold and the American NBC reporter wants to know his name, country etc? Can you say “ethnocentric”?

    Alex Farley? Was that his name? I can’t remember. I read every book the author made.

    Walter Farley….

  162. rosehips says:

    lisa, funny story about your hubby. I once almost got physical with my oldest son when he was about 16. I think I kicked the covers on top of him after he had a tantrum and I lost it. I stopped myself so close from attacking him. My kids remember it differently. To them I was public child abuser #1. hahaha

    I’m LMAO at myself…hahahaha…you were talking about a Gold medal…I thought the boy just hit a “Gold jackpot”…hahahahaa
    The report is a dumb ass for attempting to interview him and NOT even know his name!! Did she just get up from a koolaide induced nap? hahaha

  166. rosehips says:

    lisa, it wouldn’t have been invasive if the damn women knew at least his name. geesh. I guess she just jumped in when she saw him and wasn’t even paying attention to his name or country. I thought the guy had every right to call her out. What an insult.

  167. samiam60 says:

    Foxwood,

    Thanks for the tips. I usually do better than that but ya can’t win em all.

    Tea party speaker calls for hanging of WA senator

    By NICHOLAS K. GERANIOS / Associated Press Writer

    SPOKANE, Wash. – A speaker at an eastern Washington “tea party” gathering called for U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., to be hanged, drawing laughter and applause from the crowd.

    The unidentified woman, captured by a local television crew while speaking from the podium Saturday, told the crowd in Clarkston that Murray should suffer the same fate as the character Jake in the western “Lonesome Dove.”

    “What happened to Jake when he ran with the wrong crowd?” the woman asked. “He got hung. And that’s what I want to do with Patty Murray.”

    The crowd erupted in laughter at the comment. Organizers estimated that approximately 500 people attended the weekend meeting of the Lewis & Clark Tea Party Patriots, held at the Asotin County Fairgrounds.

    The U.S. Army is investigating allegations that soldiers were attempting to poison the food supply at Fort Jackson in South Carolina.

    The ongoing probe began two months ago, Chris Grey, a spokesman for the Army’s Criminal Investigation Division, told Fox News.

    The Army is taking the allegations “extremely seriously,” Grey said, but so far, “there is no credible information to support the allegations.”

    The suspects were part of a Arabic translation program called “09 Lima” and use Arabic as their first language, two sources told Fox News. Another military source said they were Muslim.

    Grey would not confirm or deny the sources’ information.

    GOP Lawmakers Hit ACORN With New Report Alleging Misconduct

    The Republicans’ latest report contains documents that they say confirms previous findings that ACORN is responsible for thousands of fraudulent voter registrations across the country and has used taxpayer money to support a partisan political agenda

    Republicans on a House oversight committee have launched a fresh set of accusations of political corruption against the scandal-plagued community organizing group ACORN — including claims that the group contributed to the risky mortgage lending that led to the collapse in the financial sector.

    The Republicans’ latest report contains documents that they say confirms previous findings that ACORN is responsible for thousands of fraudulent voter registrations across the country and has used taxpayer money to support a partisan political agenda.

    “Committee investigators have identified hundreds of ACORN bank accounts, shell organizations incorporated under different sections of the Internal Revenue code, and even an ACORN controlled accounting firm (Citizens Consulting Inc.) that helps ACORN obscure the true use of charitable donations and taxpayer funds,” reads the report, titled “Follow the Money: ACORN, SEIU and their Political Allies.”

    “Documents and testimony from ACORN whistleblowers reveal that ACORN activities — despite contentions that they are intended to help the poor — fulfill a more self-serving and political purpose for ACORN.”

    Click here to read the report.

    Rep. Darrell Issa, the top Republican on the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee, released the report, which is a follow-up to one he released in July called, “Is ACORN Intentionally Structured as a Criminal Enterprise?”

    “Perceptions that ACORN is a charitable organization are simply wrong, and part of ACORN’s efforts to deceive the American people,” Issa said in a written statement. “ACORN is a political machine that uses a complex corporate web, connections to the SEIU, and powerful political allies to break laws in pursuit of a partisan agenda.”

    “This report shines more disinfecting sunlight on ACORN’s secretive methods of abusing taxpayer funds and charitable donations,” he added.

    ACORN, a longtime target of Republicans, dismissed the report as “bogus rumors.”

    “It is hardly news when Rep. Issa repeats bogus rumors to attack a community group that empowers low income and minority Americans,” ACORN spokesman Kevin Whelan said in a written statement to FoxNews.com. “ACORN’s efforts over the years to promote living wages, responsible homeownership and voter participation are not only legal, they have improved the lives of working families nationwide.”

    The report alleges that ACORN, which stands for Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, contributed to the risky lending that led to the financial collapse by intimidating banks into lowering mortgage lending standards, becoming one of the few entities to profit from the subsequent misery.

    ACORN used the threat of jeopardizing bank mergers and acquisitions to force banks into lending agreements with its housing division, allowing the group to reap profits from more than a billion dollars in loans to low-income neighborhoods, according to the report.

    Some of the largest banks and lenders in the country, including Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, CitiBank, provided ACORN Housing with a total of $39.9 million, along with address and bank account information of at-risk homeowners to provide free counseling services, but ACORN used the information to recruit the homeowners, bringing in $48 million a year for the group, the report says.

    The report also alleges that ACORN has an illegal agreement with the union powerhouse SEIU — a partnership that Republicans say is criminal and has been used to target political candidates, pressure banks and to threaten public officials with litigation to extract political compromises at the expense of taxpayers.

    For example, ACORN has issued membership letters showing which banks caved in to the group’s pressure, created political plans targeting congressional districts to get sympathetic candidates elected and sent e-mails and legal complaints reflecting ACORN’s ability to coerce and compel public officials to meet certain demands.

    SEIU has provided ACORN with $5.6 million, the report states.

    After the Republicans’ first report was released, some ACORN workers were caught on video offering advice to a undercover filmmakers posing as a pimp and prostitute on how to set up a brothel — a scandal that upended the group which has been the target of Republican attacks for years.

    Following the public uproar over the undercover videos, Congress voted to strip ACORN of federal funding, a move that is being challenged in federal court.

    It is self-defeating in the extreme, for these Marxists… and they are too arrogant and dictatorial to accept their vision will not be fulfilled in this country. They have done more to strengthen this country with their Marxists attacks on it than even Reagan was capable of doing.

    Theirs is a Pearl Harbor attack and all they have really managed to do is wake up the sleeping giant and seriously piss him off.

    they are now getting the sh!t beat out of them and it is just getting started… the beating will not end quickly and the Marxist Progressive Socialists will not enjoy it. They will learn the simple lesson of putting their hand on a hot stove… in spades.

    Obama Writing Health Bill to Skirt GOP Filibuster

    The president reportedly is working on health care legislation intended to reconcile differences between House and Senate Democrats that could be attached to a budget bill and pass with only 51 Senate votes.

    President Obama is working on health care legislation intended to reconcile differences between House and Senate Democrats that could be attached to a budget bill and avoid a Republican filibuster, according to a published report.

    The president’s proposal, which is still being written, will be posted on the Internet by Monday morning, senior administration officials and Congressional aides told the New York Times.

    By piggybacking the legislation onto a budget bill, Democrats would be able to advance the bill with a simple majority of just 51 votes, averting a Republican filibuster in the Senate.

    The White House signaled Thursday that an aggressive, all-Democratic strategy for overhauling the nation’s health system remains a serious option, even as Obama invites Republicans to next week’s televised summit to seek possible compromises.

    “It will be a reconciliation bill,” the Times quoted a Democratic aide as saying. “If Republicans don’t come with any substantial offers, this is what we would do.”

    The administration’s stance could set the stage for a political showdown, with Democrats struggling to enact the president’s top domestic priority and Republicans trying to block what many conservatives see as government overreach.

    Obama’s plan, like the House and Senate bills, would expand coverage to some 30 million, require most Americans to carry insurance or face financial penalties, and block insurers from denying coverage to people with pre-existing medical conditions, the Times reported.

    One Capitol Hill Democrat told the Times abortion remains “a wild card.”

    Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Thursday that Obama plans to have a health proposal that “will take some of the best ideas and put them into a framework” ahead of the Feb. 25 summit.

    Obama has said he is open to Republican ideas for changing the health care system. But many Democrats seriously doubt GOP leaders will support compromises that could draw enough lawmakers from both parties to create a bipartisan majority.

    If next week’s meeting does not break the logjam, congressional Democrats will face a tough choice. They can pass a highly diluted health care bill or nothing at all, which would send them into the November elections with a high-profile failure despite their control of Congress and the White House.

    Or they can use the aggressive and contentious tactic, known as reconciliation, to pass a far-reaching health care bill in the Senate without having to face the GOP. Democrats lost their ability to block filibusters when Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown won a Senate seat last month.

    Both parties have used reconciliation rules in the past. But Republicans have practically dared Democrats to do so on health care, citing polls showing significant opposition to the legislation.

    It’s unclear whether the House or Senate can muster the necessary votes. Democrats, who now hold 255 of the House’s 435 seats, drew only one GOP ally when the House passed its health care bill, 220-215, last November. Since then, one Democrat who voted for the bill has resigned, one has died and a third plans to leave office Feb. 28. Moreover, changes meant to meet Senate demands could peel away enough liberals on one end, and party centrists on the other, to cause the revised bill to fail.

    In the Senate, Democrats control 59 seats, and reconciliation rules require only a simple majority. But several Democratic senators have expressed discomfort or outright opposition to using the rules to thwart filibusters on health care.

    The White House has invited Republicans to bring their own proposals, but GOP leaders have treated the event warily at best.

    House Republican leader John Boehner of Ohio said Thursday, “a productive, bipartisan conversation on health care starts with a clean sheet of paper.” His office labeled next week’s meeting the “summit of all fears.”

    But at least one moderate Republican was optimistic about the session.

    Sen. Susan Collins of Maine said if the summit succeeds, a bipartisan bill could be put together and passed within six weeks. “My advice to our Republican leadership is we should view this as a good faith effort and go in there with a consensus list of provisions that we could support and that would make a difference,” she said in an interview with The Associated Press.

    House Democrats are insisting on several changes to the bill the Senate passed on Christmas Eve, before Brown was elected to succeed the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy. The changes include reducing or eliminating a proposed tax on generous employer-provider health plans, and eliminating a Medicaid subsidy aimed only at Nebraska.

    Also, some House Democrats who oppose legalized abortion are demanding that the Senate’s more permissive language on the topic be replaced by the House provisions. It was unclear Thursday how that might be achieved.

    The cost of the legislation — about $1 trillion over 10 years — would be paid for through Medicare cuts and a series of tax increases. House officials said Democratic leaders are not yet pressing wary colleagues to back a health care bill under the special procedural rules. That could happen soon, however, if next week’s summit fails to produce a bipartisan breakthrough.

    House congressional aides said they expect leaders such as Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to tell colleagues that using all their parliamentary muscle to pass a health care bill — even if it triggers withering criticism from the right — is preferable to facing voters empty-handed this fall.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    morning peeps!

    VF, you have a valid point, but I think Olympic reporters do represent their countries. Anyone in a position like that should be aware that things they say will be judged by the world. I have traveled extensively too. I remember the day when Americans abroad were worshiped. (well okay it helped that we were 19 yr old hotties haha) I do remember some US travelers and hitchhikers in Europe sometimes pretended to be Canadians, eh? Even back then, Americans were abhored by some. I imagine it’s worse today. There is some validity to the term “the ugly American.” However, there are as many, if not more, in Europe who still hold America in the greatest esteem. There are many reasons why we are admired. I don’t mean to seem like I hate Americans. I love America and I love my fellow Americans. I just wish they’d wake up and realize that even if we are the best in the world, we aren’t the only ones here.

Flip the channels sometime and imagine yourself in another country watching and wondering if what they see on t.v. is a true reflection of America. Actually most probably don’t wonder, they probably think we are all just like Joy Behar and Ann Coulter, John Edwards and Larry Craig. Or else they think we are just like the Nanny or those guys on Jackass. I could go on. But to be fair, they might also think we are like Adrian Monk, the best detective in the whole entire world. I bet they be jealous! hehe

    Your right a great many people living in Socialist Countries have no hope what so ever of a better life. To work hard and become rich enough to live in a Beverly Hills type home is an impossibility under Socialism.

    This is the kind of thing that taints the tea party movement. Now this woman is trying to eat her words, so to speak. She is not convincing.

    Woman admits hanging remarks

    An organizer of a weekend “tea party” gathering in Eastern Washington said Thursday she was the speaker who drew applause from the crowd by calling for one of the state’s Democratic U.S. senators to be hanged.

    But Dianne Capps, of Clarkston, said her remark about Sen. Patty Murray was taken out of context, and what she meant was that Murray should be voted out of office in November.

    “Nobody had a rope to hang Patty Murray,” she said.

    Capps’ comments Saturday at the Lewis & Clark Tea Party Patriots meeting at the county fairgrounds in Asotin, Wash., were captured by television station KLEW of Lewiston. Speaking to the crowd from the podium, Capps said Murray should suffer the same fate as the character Jake in “Lonesome Dove.”

    “What happened to Jake when he ran with the wrong crowd?” Capps asked. “He got hung. And that’s what I want to do with Patty Murray.”

    The crowd erupted in laughter. Organizers estimated about 500 people attended the event.

    Capps, who initially denied to the Associated Press that she was the speaker, said Thursday night that the rest of the statement was that she wanted to “hang Patty Murray, by vote.”

    She contended the television news report edited out part of her statement. But KLEW news director Greg Meyer told the Lewiston Tribune newspaper that the unedited footage from the rally contains no statement from Capps about hanging Murray with votes.

    Earlier Thursday, Murray’s campaign manager, Carol Albert, said the comments were unproductive.

    Albert said Murray shares the frustrations of many people at the slow pace of the economy and partisan gridlock in Washington, D.C.

    “But positions like that taken by the Tea Party spokesperson have never solved a problem,” Albert said in a statement.

    yes, I believe the story was posted here yesterday. I however, did not read it. Is this the final blow to ACORN? They have been on a crash course to extinction.

  248. Foxwood says:

    It’s my last day on call. Still have to work some hours today… 😦

  249. rosehips says:

    m2, the weekend was “hot”. Thanks for asking.

  250. m2 says:

    heck no. The Dems are so corrupted and so corrupted this country ACORN will never be over. I hear they’re getting 5 billion to participate in more criminal activity to elect Dems who can’t win on principle alone.

    And the teacher union! LOL!!!

    This is why what Gov. Christie said the other day is so friggin’ brilliant!!!

  251. rosehips says:

    and speaking of hot, the golf courses in my area are planning to open next week. Global warming has hit hard this winter. The other day it was well up into the 50’s and on my daily walk I noticed crocuses popping up out of the ground. I planted spinach a couple weeks ago and am hoping it will be coming up soon. yum

  252. rosehips says:

    m2, it a perfect op for another group to move in and replace ACORN. It’s obvious that they are too steeped in corruption to ever gain back any credibility. I think another group will fill the much needed niche that will be left if ACORN folds.

  253. m2 says:

    mmmm I could go for a chocolate donut right now.

  254. m2 says:

    maybe that’s true, but the left and their politicians don’t admit to corruption. Hence… the current state of affairs.

    I think I actually will go to the mom and pop donut shop… we’re going to sell our house soon, so I have a lot of work to do here.

    We need some of your global warming to melt the snow.

    Although I have to say. I haven’t seen any difference in any type of climate in my lifetime. I believe El Nino has more to do with your current situation.

  259. m2 says:

    et voila,

    well geez I guess we scared Fox and Sami off…

    Well I’ll be checking back later!

  261. rosehips says:

    yes m2, it is an el nino year. I am really not trying to contend that it has to do with all the fossil fuels we burn each and every day all around the entire globe. or that it is a result of almost 7 billion people on the earth who are emitting dangerous CO2 gases. not to mention all the cows. haha

    Nuclear revival bound to fail
    Amy Goodman The Spokesman-Review Print

    President Barack Obama is going nuclear. He announced the initial $8 billion in loan guarantees for construction of the first new nuclear power plants in the United States in close to three decades.

    Obama is making good on a campaign pledge, like his promises to escalate the war in Afghanistan and to unilaterally attack in Pakistan. And like his “Af-Pak” war strategy, Obama’s publicly financed resuscitation of the nuclear power industry in the U.S. is bound to fail, another taxpayer bailout waiting to happen.

    Opponents of the plan, which includes a tripling of the existing nuclear plant construction-loan guarantees to $54.5 billion, span the ideological spectrum. On its most basic level, the economics of nuclear power generation simply don’t make sense. The cost to construct these behemoths is so huge, and the risks are so great, that no sensible investor, no banks, no hedge funds will invest in their construction.

    No one will loan a power company the money to build a power plant, and the power companies refuse to spend their own money. Obama himself professes a passion for the free market, telling Bloomberg BusinessWeek, “We are fierce advocates for a thriving, dynamic free market.” Well, the free market long ago abandoned nuclear power. The right-wing think tank Heritage Foundation remarked, “Expansive loan guarantee programs … are wrought with problems. At a minimum, they create taxpayer liabilities, give recipients preferential treatment, and distort capital markets.”

    Amory Lovins of the Rocky Mountain Institute, a longtime critic of the nuclear power industry, told me, “If you buy more nuclear plants, you’re going to get about two to 10 times less climate solution per dollar, and you’ll get it about 20 to 40 times slower, than if you buy instead the cheaper, faster stuff that is walloping nuclear and coal and gas.”

    In his 2008 report “The Nuclear Illusion,” Lovins writes, “Nuclear power is continuing its decades-long collapse in the global marketplace because it’s grossly uncompetitive, unneeded, and obsolete – so hopelessly uneconomic that one needn’t debate whether it’s clean and safe; it weakens electric reliability and national security; and it worsens climate change compared with devoting the same money and time to more effective options.”

    The White House Office of Management and Budget, in the same statement announcing the $54.5 billion for nuclear power, also listed a “credit subsidy funding of $500 million to support $3 (billion) to $5 billion of loan guarantees for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.” Thus, just one-tenth the amount for nuclear is being dedicated to energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies.

    At the same time, the Obama administration plans to cancel funding for the hugely unpopular Yucca Mountain nuclear waste storage facility. Edwin Lyman of the Union of Concerned Scientists told the Christian Science Monitor: “(The Obama administration) doesn’t have a plan for (storing) radioactive waste from a new generation of nuclear power plants. That is irresponsible.”

    The waste from nuclear power plants is not only an ecological nightmare, but also increases the threats of nuclear proliferation. Obama said in his recent State of the Union address, “We’re also confronting perhaps the greatest danger to the American people – the threat of nuclear weapons.” Despite this, plans that accompany what Obama has proposed, his “new generation of safe, clean nuclear power plants,” include increased commercial “nuclear fuel reprocessing,” which the Union of Concerned Scientists calls “dangerous, dirty and expensive,” and which they say would increase the global risks of both nuclear proliferation and nuclear terrorism.

    Both Lovins and the Union of Concerned Scientists debunk the myth that nuclear energy is essential to combat global warming. Lovins writes, “Every dollar invested in nuclear expansion will worsen climate change by buying less solution per dollar.”

    Obama said that this first tranche of public funding, which will benefit the energy giant Southern Company, “will create thousands of construction jobs in the next few years, and some 800 permanent jobs.” Yet investment in solar, wind and cogeneration technologies could do the same thing, quickly creating industries here in the U.S. that are thriving in Europe. What’s more, the risks of failure of a windmill or a solar panel are minute when compared with nuclear power plant disasters like Three Mile Island and Chernobyl.

    From economics, to the environment, to the prevention of nuclear threats, Obama’s nuclear loan guarantees fail on all counts.

    What’s the Deal with this Current Warm Northern Hemispheric Winter?

    AccuWeather.com’s long range forecasting expert Joe Bastardi brought up some interesting points in his blog on Wednesday. Joe’s column appears daily on the AccuWeather.com professional site.

    ——–

    EARTH CONTINUES WARMEST NORTHERN HEMISPHERE WINTER SINCE SATELLITE MEASUREMENTS STARTED (LATE 1970S)

    Just as I will hammer away at anyone blaming global warming for any one event, we must also be objective about the Earth’s temp measurement; it is warmer than any winter in the satellite era. The reason is simple, we have an El Nino, but we also have a warm Arctic, a product of the blocking (negative Arctic Oscillation or -AO). These are mutually exclusive, as the warm Arctic and blocking are not a result of the el nino, but probably the excess sulphur dioxide (SO2) shot into the Arctic atmosphere (the stratosphere) by major high latitude volcanoes. But what is interesting is that with no El Nino, the temp would probably be .5F to .6F colder (the El Nino spike is .5 to 1 F) which would have made it one of the coldest winters in the last 10 years, though probably not with the same result. All the cold is being “squeezed” into mid latitudes.

    World’s top firms cause $2.2tn of environmental damage, report estimates

    Report for the UN into the activities of the world’s 3,000 biggest companies estimates one-third of profits would be lost if firms were forced to pay for use, loss and damage of environment
    The cost of pollution and other damage to the natural environment caused by the world’s biggest companies would wipe out more than one-third of their profits if they were held financially accountable, a major unpublished study for the United Nations has found.

    The report comes amid growing concern that no one is made to pay for most of the use, loss and damage of the environment, which is reaching crisis proportions in the form of pollution and the rapid loss of freshwater, fisheries and fertile soils.

    Later this year, another huge UN study – dubbed the “Stern for nature” after the influential report on the economics of climate change by Sir Nicholas Stern – will attempt to put a price on such global environmental damage, and suggest ways to prevent it. The report, led by economist Pavan Sukhdev, is likely to argue for abolition of billions of dollars of subsidies to harmful industries like agriculture, energy and transport, tougher regulations and more taxes on companies that cause the damage.

    Ahead of changes which would have a profound effect – not just on companies’ profits but also their customers and pension funds and other investors – the UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investment initiative and the United Nations Environment Programme jointly ordered a report into the activities of the 3,000 biggest public companies in the world, which includes household names from the UK’s FTSE 100 and other major stockmarkets.

    The study, conducted by London-based consultancy Trucost and due to be published this summer, found the estimated combined damage was worth US$2.2 trillion (£1.4tn) in 2008 – a figure bigger than the national economies of all but seven countries in the world that year.

    The figure equates to 6-7% of the companies’ combined turnover, or an average of one-third of their profits, though some businesses would be much harder hit than others.

    “What we’re talking about is a completely new paradigm,” said Richard Mattison, Trucost’s chief operating officer and leader of the report team. “Externalities of this scale and nature pose a major risk to the global economy and markets are not fully aware of these risks, nor do they know how to deal with them.”

    The biggest single impact on the $2.2tn estimate, accounting for more than half of the total, was emissions of greenhouse gases blamed for climate change. Other major “costs” were local air pollution such as particulates, and the damage caused by the over-use and pollution of freshwater.

    The true figure is likely to be even higher because the $2.2tn does not include damage caused by household and government consumption of goods and services, such as energy used to power appliances or waste; the “social impacts” such as the migration of people driven out of affected areas, or the long-term effects of any damage other than that from climate change. The final report will also include a higher total estimate which includes those long-term effects of problems such as toxic waste.

    Trucost did not want to comment before the final report on which sectors incurred the highest “costs” of environmental damage, but they are likely to include power companies and heavy energy users like aluminium producers because of the greenhouse gases that result from burning fossil fuels. Heavy water users like food, drink and clothing companies are also likely to feature high up on the list.

    Sukhdev said the heads of the major companies at this year’s annual economic summit in Davos, Switzerland, were increasingly concerned about the impact on their business if they were stopped or forced to pay for the damage.

    “It can make the difference between profit and loss,” Sukhdev told the annual Earthwatch Oxford lecture last week. “That sense of foreboding is there with many, many [chief executives], and that potential is a good thing because it leads to solutions.”

    The aim of the study is to encourage and help investors lobby companies to reduce their environmental impact before concerned governments act to restrict them through taxes or regulations, said Mattison.

    “It’s going to be a significant proportion of a lot of companies’ profit margins,” Mattison told the Guardian. “Whether they actually have to pay for these costs will be determined by the appetite for policy makers to enforce the ‘polluter pays’ principle. We should be seeking ways to fix the system, rather than waiting for the economy to adapt. Continued inefficient use of natural resources will cause significant impacts on [national economies] overall, and a massive problem for governments to fix.”

    Another major concern is the risk that companies simply run out of resources they need to operate, said Andrea Moffat, of the US-based investor lobby group Ceres, whose members include more than 80 funds with assets worth more than US$8tn. An example was the estimated loss of 20,000 jobs and $1bn last year for agricultural companies because of water shortages in California, said Moffat.

Of course they will be government jobs. Of course this can’t go on forever. A complete repudiation of progressive tax policy is needed, keeping Bush Tax Cuts in place, while even lowering every tax straight across the board. Gee it has only worked in the early 20’s under JFK, Reagan and W. Of course since our rulers can’t ever read a bill should we expect them to be up on geopolitical economic history? LOL
