Obama Economy Management sets new US Record!

From the Washington Post:

News Alert: New home sales hit record low in January
10:03 AM EST Wednesday, February 24, 2010
——————–

Sales of new homes plunged to a record low in January, underscoring the formidable challenges facing the housing industry as it tries to recover from the worst slump in decades.

The Commerce Department reported Wednesday that new home sales dropped 11.2 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual sales pace of 309,000 units, the lowest level on records going back nearly a half century. The big drop was a surprise to economists who had expected sales would rebound to an annual rate of 360,000 units.

Socialists running the economy is like inmates running a Mental Hospital.

And, Obama’s Economists were ‘surprised?’ About what? That Socialist economic stewardship is like a hot air balloon with a limited supply of heating gas?

The only thing that was Stimulated by Obama’s ‘Stimulus Package’ was the pork barrel bragging rights of Socialist Politicians on projects aimed at getting them re-elected.

Well… 2010 will measure the true results of Obama’s ‘Stimulus Package’ !!!!

hahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Congressional Performance
    71% Give Congress Poor Rating
    Wednesday, February 24, 2010
    Email a Friend Email to a Friend
    Advertisement

    Voter unhappiness with Congress has reached the highest level ever recorded by Rasmussen Reports as 71% now say the legislature is doing a poor job.

    That’s up ten points from the previous high of 61% reached a month ago.

    Only 10% of voters say Congress is doing a good or excellent job.

    Nearly half of Democratic voters (48%) now give Congress a poor rating, up 17 points since January. The vast majority of Republicans and voters not affiliated with either party also give Congress poor ratings.

    Seventy percent (70%) of voters say Congress has not passed any legislation that would significantly improve life for Americans, up 10 points over the past month and the highest level of dissatisfaction measured in regular tracking in over three years. Only 15% say Congress has passed such legislation.

    Forty percent (40%) of voters nationwide now say it is at least somewhat likely Congress will seriously address the most important issues facing the nation. That’s down from 59% last March. Only 9% say it is Very Likely Congress will address these issues.

    These numbers are consistent with the analysis provided in Scott Rasmussen’s new book, In Search of Self-Governance. Scott notes that “Today, Americans are united. United in the belief that our political system is broken, that politicians are corrupt, and that neither major political party has the answers.” He adds, “Some of us are ready to give up; some of us are ready to scream a little louder. But all of us believe we can do better.”

    The book has received positive reviews from across the political spectrum. In Search of Self-Governance is available from Rasmussen Reports and at Amazon.com.

    Other recent polling also reflects voter disappointment in Congress. Earlier this month, 63% of voters said it would be better for the country if most incumbents in Congress were defeated this November. Just 27% of voters say their representative in Congress is the best possible person for the job.

    Three out of four voters (75%) report being at least somewhat angry at the policies of the federal government. Part of the frustration is likely due to the belief of 60% of voters that neither Republican political leaders nor Democratic political leaders have a good understanding of what is needed today.

    Still, voters believe Democrats are more likely than Republicans to have a plan for the future.

    Regardless of which political side voters are on, just 21% believe that the federal government enjoys the consent of the governed.

    As Congress continues to hash out the health care reform plan proposed by the president and Congressional Democrats, just 41% of voters favor the plan while 56% are opposed. Sixty-three percent (63%) of all voters say a better strategy to reform the health care system would be to pass smaller bills that address problems individually.

    Just 9% of voters believe most members of Congress are genuinely interested in helping people, which ties the recent low in December. Eighty-one percent (81%) say most members of Congress are more interested in their own careers, a new multi-year high.

    The plurality of voters (42%) continues to believe most members of Congress are corrupt, a result that has remained fairly consistent over the past several months. One in three U.S. voters (32%) does not see most congressmen as corrupt. Another 26% are undecided.

    In 2010, Republican candidates have consistently held an advantage over Democrats in the Generic Congressional Ballot.

    Rasmussen Reports has recently surveyed Senate races in Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Florida, Connecticut, Pennyslvania, Ohio, Oregon, Washington and Wisconsin. Most show a troubling political environment for the Democratic candidates.

    WASHINGTON — Americans’ fears about health-care overhaul’s effect on them eased in January, according to a poll released as the president tries to revive sweeping Democratic legislation.

    The monthly poll from the nonpartisan Robert Wood Johnson Foundation also found that three-fourths of Americans still think it’s important that Obama include health-care overhaul in addressing the nation’s economic crisis — even if many have misgivings.

    “The poll found that the proportion of Americans who said they feared their access to doctors and hospitals would get worse under the Democratic plans dropped to 29 percent, from 33 percent who had expressed such concerns in December. In the January poll fewer than 12 percent said that they thought their access would improve.

    Canadian Government Run Socialist Healthcare:

    Can there be anything stranger than Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams and the defenders of medicare declaring when a multi-millionaire Canadian political leader bypasses his own province’s (and country’s) health care system to get better and faster heart surgery in Miami, there’s “nothing to see here folks, so everyone please move along”?

    The issue is not, as Williams argued in an interview Monday with The Canadian Press, that he has the right to use his own financial resources to make the best decision for him about his own health care.

    Of course he does.

    As Williams put it: “This was my heart, my choice and my health. I did not sign away my right to get the best possible health care for myself when I entered politics.”

    Agreed. But what’s relevant is that while Williams was exercising his right to personal choice in health care, Canadian premiers, the federal government and every mainstream opposition party in the country are collectively enabling, defending and enforcing a medicare system that denies average Canadians the right to the same choice — here in Canada.

    The Supreme Court of Canada made this point in June, 2005. In a 4-3 decision, it ruled it was unjust to force patients to wait in line for medically necessary services available only through medicare, then deny them timely access to those services, then ban them from using their own resources to obtain timely treatment through the purchase of private medical insurance.

    In ruling against Quebec’s laws banning private medical insurance — and, by implication, similar provincial laws — the Supreme Court noted Canada already has two-tier health care, practised by rich Canadians who bypass medicare by heading to the U.S. for treatment. (Sound familiar?)

    The court rejected federal and provincial government arguments that allowing Canadians to buy private medical insurance for medically necessary services here in Canada would destroy medicare, noting European countries have public health systems with a private insurance component, some with better services than Canada.

    Which brings us to the real issue — not that Premier Williams used his own resources to buy private health care in the U.S., but that Canadians can’t do the same thing in Canada for medically necessary services.

    (In most provinces, we can only buy private medical insurance for things like prescription drugs, or semi-private rooms while in hospital.)

    Ironically, Newfoundland and Labrador is the most progressive province in permitting private insurance for medically necessary services. But, in part because of its small size, there’s insufficient patient demand to make it practical.

    Most other provinces covering the vast majority of Canadians either ban private insurance, or don’t allow doctors to be paid privately, or make it prohibitively expensive by requiring them to opt out of medicare.

    Canada’s political leaders claim they’ve responded to the Supreme Court’s ruling by spending billions of (our) tax dollars shortening (some) medical wait times to acceptable levels.

    Acceptable, that is, as defined by government bureaucrats who work for them.

    But when Auditor General Jim McCarter examined wait time information provided by the Ontario government to the public, he found it artificially shortened them through accounting tricks, such as not starting the clock until the request for a procedure was entered into hospital computer systems, as opposed to when it was made.

    Or, by averaging wait times for MRIs and CT scans when a patient was already in hospital (and thus gets them quickly) with those for patients not in hospital. That was absurd and misleading, since it’s the latter that are the real concern.

    Williams is now recovering in Florida and expects to be back to work in March.

    When he is, he should fight to give all Canadians the same choice he had to receive timely treatment for medically necessary services, using his own resources.

    He can do that by advocating for the right of all Canadians to purchase private medical insurance for medically necessary treatment in Canada.

    Ottawa hospital officials are warning that a major budget shortfall could force the city’s six hospitals to cancel surgeries, close beds and lay off staff.

    The hospitals are currently facing a $51.6-million shortfall and are considering ways to cut expenses. By law, Ontario hospitals must balance their books each year.

    The Ottawa Hospital currently has a budget shortfall of $20-25 million, based on a two per cent funding increase.

    However, there’s no guarantee the provincial government will increase funding.

    ==============================================

    The government can’t increase their funding! They have no money.This is why if Canadians could opt out of this H/C system and be treated in a Privately funded way it would eliviate the backlogs and the strain put on the current system.But The Canadian System has become the sacred cow!

    Obama, Biden, Clinton, Dodd & More Believe Reconciliation is Unconstitutional
    by Human Events
    02/24/2010

    The Obama White House has recently announced that they will go forward with a reconciliation process — sometimes called the “nuclear option” — to try and pass their government run healthcare plan in the Senate. This process circumvents a Republican filibuster and only requires a simple majority vote of 51 rather than 60.

    What did top Democrats think of this process previously? See below…

    Barack Obama 4/25/05: “The President hasn’t gotten his way. And that is now prompting a change in the Senate rules that really I think would change the character of the Senate forever…what I worry about would be that you essentially still have two chambers the House and the Senate but you have simply majoritarian absolute power on either side, and that’s just not what the founders intended.”

    Hillary Clinton 5/23/2005: “So this president has come to the majority here in the Senate and basically said ‘change the rules.’ ‘Do it the way I want it done.’ And I guess there just weren’t very many voices on the other side of the isle that acted the way previous generations of senators have acted and said ‘Mr. President we are with you, we support you, but that’s a bridge too far we can’t go there.’ You have to restrain yourself Mr. President.

    Charles Schumer 5/18/2005: “We are on the precipice of a crisis, a constitutional crisis. The checks and balances which have been at the core of this Republic are about to be evaporated by the nuclear option. The checks and balances which say that if you get 51% of the vote you don’t get your way 100% of the time. It is amazing it’s almost a temper tantrum.

    Harry Reid 5/18/2005: “Mr. President the right to extended debate is never more important than the one party who controls congress and the white house. In these cases the filibuster serves as a check on power and preserves our limited government.”

    Dianne Feinstein 5/18/2005: The nuclear option if successful will turn the Senate into a body that could have its rules broken at any time by a majority of senators unhappy with any position taken by the minority. It begins with judicial nominations. Next will be executive appointments and then legislation.

    Joe Biden 5/23/2005: This nuclear option is ultimately an example of the arrogance of power. It is a fundamental power grab.

    Harry Reid 5/18/2005: “But no we are not going to follow the Senate rules. No, because of the arrogance of power of this Republican administration.”

    Chris Dodd 5/18/2005: “I’ve never passed a single bill worth talking about that didn’t have a lead co sponsor that was a Republican. And I don’t know of a single piece of legislation that’s ever been adopted here that didn’t have a Republican and Democrat in the lead. That’s because we need to sit down and work with each other. The rules of this institution have required that. That’s why we exist. Why have a bicameral legislative body? Why have two chambers? What were the framers thinking about 218 years ago? They understood Mr. President that there is a tyranny of the majority.

    Dianne Feinstein 5/18/2005: “If the Republican leadership insists on forcing the nuclear option the senate becomes ipso facto the House of Representatives where the majority rules supreme and the party of power can dominate and control the agenda with absolute power.”

    Hillary Clinton 5/23/2005: “You’ve got majority rule and then you have the senate over here where people can slow things down where they can debate where they have something called the filibuster. You know it seems like it’s a little less than efficient — well that’s right it is. And deliberately designed to be so.”

    Joe Biden 5/23/05: “I say to my friends on the Republican side you may own the field right now buy you won’t own it forever I pray God when the Democrats take back control we don’t make the kind of naked power grab you are doing.”

    Charles Schumer 5/23/2005: “They want their way every single time. And they will change the rules, break the rules, and misread the constitution so that they will get their way.”

    Hillary Clinton 5/23/2005: “The Senate is being asked to turn itself inside out, to ignore the precedent to ignore the way our system has work, the delicate balance that we have obtain that has kept this constitution system going, for immediate gratification of the present President.”

    Max Baucus 5/19/2005: “This is the way Democracy ends. Not with a bomb but with a gavel.”

    No no no.. I think ALL Americans want reform. I believe we need to help those that have no insurance. I just don’t think government run will work. Our VA and Indian Hospitals prove that. Then look at the DMV, Social Security, Medicare, Medicade.

    Helloooo-

    “more of the same” in healthcare would be more regulation (democrat) and more special interest (trial lawyers/democrat).

    In fact what Obama offers is more of the same. More of the same dibilitating regulation that cease competition and raise prices of premiums. More of the same special interests getting freebies in exchange for Dem votes, i.e. Lawyers & now thanks to Obama, Big Pharma deals to keep drugs costly in exchange for their support of Democrat “plans”. And more of the same, and in fact- expanded numbers, benefit cuts of the bankrupted federal insurance program.

    So I guess what democrats want… More of the same.

    Status quo of a semi-Socialist healthcare system. But in a few years it wouldn’t be “more of the same” -it would be categorically destitute.

    We need more freedom, and less of “the same”.

  66. m2 says:

    Good post VF! Even Obama “economists” are starting to “worry” especially gauging Greece. I love when liberal economists show worry. It’s like they almost have a functioning brain, albeit slower than the average Joe who figured out eons ago that this trade deficit and spending means mister Obama will best be known and known only as: the Poster Child for DEBT.

    I’m sure that you Sam, as a full blown White Hate group supporter, find this ridiculous.

    Jeff,

    Now why would you resort to name calling. White Hate Group? C,mon, your comments reflect hate not mine.

    My issue with Van Jones has to do with Communistic beliefs. If you want to make it a race issue that is on you. As far as me going back to where I came from, well, I came from here. My Great Great Grandparents came here from Italy and were persecuted for being Italian and had to work sun up to sun down for a better life. There were no Government Programs in those days so it was either sink or swim. They swam and built a good life here in America and the rest is history. Expel me from America, I think not, I served in Viet Nam and fought for “our” freedom. What defines a true American is the “We” and “Our” in our conversations.

    Sorry about your Racial Hatred of White folks but that’s your problem not mine.

    Hi – just swooping by. Hi Sami, FOX and ROSE. I am sorry I missed the discussion of cars.

    My father back in the late 50s told me that he would buy me a used car but that he wanted me to learn on a stick shift in case there were an emergency and a stick was the only car available. He bought me a 1951 Mercury colored army green and shaped like a football. Those were the colors available just after WWII. We called it “the bomb.” Dad said “you can wrap this thing around a tree, it will protect you. Then just put a dime in the phone, call me and there will be no hard feelings.” He watched patiently as in learning how to coordinate clutch with gas pedal my back wheels spit a lot of gravel onto the grass. The worst was having me come out to the driveway just to see that I had dragged a sapling from the church parking lot home. I was so short and that car was so big, I never knew it. We bought the car with the idea that whatever was in the trunk came with the car. It would not open. I can’t tell you how it made me nervous. I was convinced it had been owned by a Mafioso and that I was recycling a body.

  71. Foxwood says:

    Jef either doesn’t get it (stupid), or is trying to make you look like a racist (and he don’t wound that bright).

    Yes FOX, I had a 1951 Mercury. Later in life in the late 60s I had a really good looking one with an opera window in the back.

    The Commerce Department reported Wednesday that new home sales dropped 11.2 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual sales pace of 309,000 units, the lowest level on records going back nearly a half century.

  81. ohiobelle says:

    I think this latest witch hunt against Toyota may also have alot to do with Toyota closing NUMMI in California. Toyota invested $1.3 billion in a new plant in San Antonio, Texas, to build full-sized pickups and another $1.3 billion into a still-uncompleted assembly plant near Tupelo, Miss.

    Even Toyota knows it’s impossible to do business in California. I am certain that this is a witch hunt.

    U.S. Pays For Muslims’ Special Islamic Meals

    In the Obama Administration’s latest effort to appease Muslims, the U.S. government will begin delivering special meals, prepared according to Islamic law, to home-bound seniors in a city known for its thriving Muslim population.

    The government-funded Meals on Wheels program, designed to feed disabled seniors who are confined to their homes and unable to make their own food, will begin offering halal cuisine this month in Detroit’s Wayne County, which is home to the nation’s most concentrated Muslim population.

    American tax dollars will pay a special company to make the so-called halal meals, which are prepared according to Islamic teachings. Halal is an Arabic term for lawful under Islamic code. This means that pork is prohibited and all meat must come from animals that are ritually slaughtered. Allah must be pronounced during the kill and animals must be properly nourished, well rested and not stressed or excited prior to slaughter.

    The costly Detroit program will soon expand into other areas with large Muslim populations, according to officials, who predict New York, Texas, California and Illinois are next. The company that makes the special Islamic meals is also working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to develop an accredited halal food program.

    Convicted felons in California will also get their religiously prepared halal meals in jail after Muslim inmates cried discrimination because Jewish prisoners get kosher meals. Taxpayers in the nation’s most populous state, which is on the verge of bankruptcy, will dish out an additional half a million dollars a year to purchase the halal meals for its 5,000 Muslim prisoners.

    This keeps with President Obama’s mission to befriend Muslims. The administration has met with Arab, Muslim and Sikh extremists to discuss national security matters, ordered the nation’s space agency (NASA) to focus on Muslim outreach and diplomacy and has allowed the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties have for years banned them from the U.S.

    Napolitano Secretly Hosts Terrorist Groups In D.C.

    In the Obama Administration’s latest effort to befriend radical Muslims, the cabinet official in charge of protecting the country’s safety covertly met with a group of extremist Arab, Muslim and Sikh organizations to discuss national security matters.
    Briefing radical Islamists who want to murder Americans about homeland security measures may seem like a bizarre tactic to counter terrorism, but it’s the center of Obama’s famous change rhetoric. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, most concerned about a wave of anti-Muslim backlash after the Ft. Hood massacre, and her senior staff privately met in Washington D.C. with the groups. Among them was the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood, which is a sort of parent organization of Hamas and Al Qaeda.

    Not surprisingly, the mainstream media ignored the two-day event which was exclusively reported this week by an alternative internet news company that regularly breaks big stories. Napolitano actually spent and hour and a half briefing the Middle Easterners about the U.S. government’s new “counter-radicalization” and “anti-terrorist” programs largely aimed at their followers.

    The top-secret event was part of President Obama’s innovative program aimed at creating an information-sharing framework with Muslim organizations, even those with known extremist ties and terrorist connections. The idea, laughable as it may seem, is to win over Muslims and get them to collaborate with the U.S. government.

    Officially, the Department of Homeland Security billed the event as a low-key meeting with faith and community-based groups to brainstorm about ways to increase engagement, dialogue and information sharing. After all, the groups are key homeland security partners that contribute to American life and exemplify the diversity that is a hallmark of our country, the agency claimed in a press release.

    Strengthening partnerships with these groups will help the U.S. better prepare, assess and respond to threats, Napolitano assures. This is the same official whose biggest concern was preventing a wave of anti-Muslim sentiment in the United States after an Al Qaeda wannabe Army major went on a murderous rampage at the nation’s largest military base.

    These are just some examples of the administration’s push to befriend the enemy. Last month Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed a special order—intended as a sign of respect to Muslims around the world—to allow the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties have for years banned them from the U.S. Just this week Obama ordered the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to focus on Muslim outreach and diplomacy, a rather unusual mission for the space agency.

    “From the moment when the machine first made its appearance it was clear to all thinking people that the need for human drudgery, and therefore to a great extent for human inequality, had disappeared. If the machine were used deliberately for that end, hunger, overwork, dirt, illiteracy and disease could be eliminated within a few generations. … But it was also clear that an all-round increase in wealth threatened the destruction – indeed, in some sense was the destruction – of a hierarchical society. … the most obvious and perhaps the most important form of inequality would already have disappeared. If it once became general, wealth would confer no distinction. … But in practice such a society could not long remain stable. For if leisure and security were enjoyed by all alike, the great mass of human beings who are normally stupefied by poverty would become literate and would learn to think for themselves; and when once they had done this, they would sooner or later realise that the privileged minority had no function, and they would sweep it away. In the long run, a hierarchical society was only possible on a basis of poverty and ignorance. … Ignorance is Strength” — 1984

    Washington, D.C. – Usually, a 10 means perfection. Not in this case. 10 refers to the percentage of Americans who give Congress a favorable rating, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll.

    The public’s disgust for lawmakers has reached an all-time high, or low, depending upon how you look at it. 71 percent of those who answered the Rasmussen poll said Congress is doing a poor job. That’s up 10 percentage points from last month’s previous low of 61 percent.

    A number of factors are responsible for low approval, including the health care debate, the lack of jobs, and the slow to rebound housing market. But the glaring detail of the poll turned out to be that most Americans — 81 percent — believe members of Congress are most concerned about their own careers than they are in passing laws or reform to help improve life for the public.

  136. samiam60 says:

    Here comes a second American Financial MELTDOWN

    Yes, it sure appears to be coming, based on the fact that the Obama Administration and this current (soon to change) Congress have done absolutely nothing to determine exactly what caused the first melt down of our financial systems.

    All the eloquent speeches in the world from the Anointed One will not improve our economy nor, is it in any way shape or form, create jobs. We now have a President that is so full of himself that America may very well suffer another financial setback that all the kings men and all the kings czars cannot put back together again.

    The good news is that America is waking up and come November we will put real American Patriots in the seats now filled with Corrupted and stagnant career politicians who have forgotten the Power of We the People. These are people who have become absolutely Corrupted and morally challenged in their day-to-day lives.

    We the People have vowed to take back our Country from these so-called Progressive Socialists who have no place here in our Republic. We will not, as a Free People, ever surrender to Socialism, Marxism, nor Communism and the sooner the Progressive Elitists get that through their thick skulls, the better off and safer this world will be.

    Mr. President, do not underestimate what the American People will fight for. If you do, you will find yourself on the losing side of history. Americans are now busy resetting the course of American History and yes we are even going to correct our school books so that we have an inclusive, complete, and accurate documenting of American History and not some super altered Progressive evolution of our minds. The truth is out there now and Americans are flocking to it in record numbers to reinforce our resolve to end once and for all the Progressive Movement in the United States of America.

    We are united like never before and we will not go silently into the night Mr. President. Only a fool would say in his heart that there is no God. We the People are on the right side of God and his plans for America. He is the Light of the World and We the People reflect His light to a dying world.

    Freddie Mac lost almost $26 billion
    Federal taxpayers covering mortgage company’s losses

    WASHINGTON – Freddie Mac lost almost $26 billion last year, ominous news for taxpayers who are footing the bill to rescue the mortgage finance company and its sibling Fannie Mae.

    Freddie Mac, which has lost a total of almost $80 billion since the housing crisis started in 2007, is bracing for more pain. The McLean, Va.-based company said a record 4 percent of its borrowers are at least three months behind on their payments and facing foreclosure.

    Its chief executive, Charles Haldeman, warned Wednesday of a “potential large wave of foreclosures” still to come.

    I have a little story to tell about dealing with gov’t beauracracy.

    I got a letter a couple weeks ago stating that the HCTC (Health Coverage Tax Credit) updated my account to reflect the change to my health premium from the state insurance plan I suscribe to, Basic Health. HCTC covers 80% of my premium, which was raised to $382. The letter stated that my share is now $76.33 and if I didn’t already send my payment for this month, to send the new amount. Well, I pay my bills promptly, usually, so I already had sent $24. to them. They didn’t say anything about what to do if I had already sent the payment. I assumed I would have to subtract the 24 from the 76 and send the balance. They are very strict about deadlines and if you miss the deadline, you are responsible for the full amount, or balance, and must pay the insurance plan directly. Since my deadline is past, I am now responsible for my full premium, minus the $120. that HCTC sent them, which is what my premium used to be. Very complicated bureaucratic mess. Technically, from the letter, I followed the instructions and should not be penalized. The woman I spoke to on the phone agrees but still I am responsible. I filed a complaint and the gal said she would report it and maybe they would rewrite the letter. I asked her to request that I be contacted if they do this. I’d like to think I can help some other poor sucker who takes this letter literally and is not sharp enough to realize that they must do the math and send in the balance. lesson learned. Being an ex call center agent, I made sure the gal I talked knew I didn’t blame her. She was smart and understood me right from the git go. It was a satisfying conversation, although costly to me. damn.

  147. rosehips says:

    foxy, I see that a new Hummer may soon be a thing of the past. Better grab one while you can. 😉

  148. rosehips says:

    and re: foreclosures. As I mentioned last week, we are in for a serious awakening when the unemployment checks run out. How many people are eeking out an existence with their paltry ui checks? Think that’s bad? Wait until it stops coming. States are going bankrupt and still the feds extend ui payments. People are falling dangerously behind on payments. And y’all wonder why new home sales have fallen over 11%? duh. It’s not Obama’s fault. Do you really expect people to buy new homes when so many are going into foreclosure? Again, you can blame Barney Fudd, Chris Dodd, Obama, and Nancy Pelosi, but I blame homeowners who borrowed what they can not pay back.

  149. Foxwood says:

    I want a military Hummer. Even if it’s used.

  150. Foxwood says:

    No, don’t pull the machine gun turret off. I take it like it is.

    Feb. 23, 2010,’Death of American Capitalism:’ The 10 final scenes
    Commentary: Munger warns 2012 is our tipping point on ‘road to ruin’
    ARROYO GRANDE, Calif. (MarketWatch) — Good news, Americans are “downbeat about today. Upbeat about tomorrow,” says the latest USA Today/Gallup Poll. “Americans feel battered by hard times, record home foreclosures, stubbornly high unemployment rates and war.”

    And yes, we are “fed up with Washington and convinced more than 3 to 1 that the nation is heading in the wrong direction,” yet there’s “confidence that there will be better times ahead, that the classic American dream endures and hasn’t been extinguished. It’s not even at its low ebb.” Why? Because we’re in denial!

    Bull market for bonds is endingBond investors enjoyed stellar gains for several years but that’s about to end, says Kurt Brouwer, chairman of Brouwer & Janachowski and editor of MarketWatch’s Fundmastery blog. He talks with Money & Investing Editor Jonathan Burton.
    Do Main Street’s 95 million investors know something Warren Buffett’s long-time partner, Charlie Munger, doesn’t know? Munger is warning us “It’s Over” for America. Yes, “o-v-e-r,” America’s in decline, at the end-of-days, coming to “financial ruin,” says Munger.

    Optimism has always been the enduring spirit that made us a great nation, brought us back from overwhelming challenges and impossible odds — WW II, the Civil War, the 1776 Revolution. Yes, that spirit still burns in our soul, says the poll.

    But we also know, as we said earlier in “The Death of the Soul of Capitalism,” that over the long-term, through many centuries, historians give nations an average of about 200 years before they burn out. Why? Because the “blind optimism” that makes a nation great in the early years of its rise to power and glory becomes, paradoxically, its worst enemy in the end-days.

    Their arrogance traps them in a self-sabotaging cycle that weakens their resolve, makes them vulnerable to new, unpredictable challenges, ultimately destroying them from within. That happens over and over throughout history, even as their optimistic brains tell them they’re still the greatest.

    So for a moment, please set aside your “optimism,” listen to our translation of Munger’s drama as a 10-scene crime-thriller about America on the “road to ruin.”

    Plot notes: Warning, America is on a ‘road to financial ruin’
    Turns out that like Buffett, whose tales we detailed earlier, Munger’s a good storyteller. His parable, “Basically It’s Over: A parable about how one nation came to financial ruin,” appeared in Slate magazine. Clearly he’s warning about the end of capitalism, the end of democracy, the coming end of America.

    In his parable Munger calls America “Basicland … rich in all nature’s bounty.” In our recasting it as a drama, we’ll use “America” rather than “Basicland” in the narrative to drive home the full impact of Munger’s powerful message.

    Scene 1: Power and wealth create false sense of invincibility
    Significantly, Munger says 2012 is the turning point, a signal, the moment setting up the final crisis scene. We’ve often made a similar timing prediction, one tied to the 2012 election, and a reminder of the warning made by Jared Diamond in “Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed.” In the late stages of a nation’s cycle: A crisis hits. Everyone, leaders and citizens, act surprised. But it’s too late: “Civilizations share a sharp curve of decline. Indeed, a society’s demise may begin only a decade or two after it reaches its peak population, wealth and power.” Just 20 short years to ruin?

    Munger warns: “Even a country as cautious, sound, and generous as America could come to ruin if it failed to address the dangers that can be caused by the ordinary accidents of life. These dangers were significant by 2012, when the extreme prosperity of America had created a peculiar outcome: As their affluence and leisure time grew, America’s citizens more and more whiled away their time in the excitement of casino gambling.” Yes, Main Street “feels battered” while Wall Street gambling casinos generate billions.

    Scene 2: Greed consumes America: Gambling replaces real work
    In Munger’s brilliant parable “the winnings of the casinos eventually amounted to 25% of America’s GDP, while 22% of all employee earnings in America were paid to persons employed by the casinos” and “many of the gamblers were highly talented engineers attracted partly by casino poker but mostly by bets available in the bucket shop systems, with the bets now called financial derivatives.” Yes, the same derivative bets Buffett targeted when he warned against “financial weapons of mass destruction.”

    Scene 3: Wall Street’s casinos prosper as Main Street suffers
    Munger’s also not talking about just the million or so gamblers working in Wall Street’s “too political to fail” casino-banks. No, “gamblers” are also among Main Street America’s 95 million average investors, though most of the high rollers are the slick pros on casino payrolls where “most casino revenue now came from bets on security prices under a system used in the 1920s.” Think of Goldman’s trading operation that often makes $100 million profits daily, while America has close to 20% underemployed.

    Scene 4: America’s side-bet debt to foreign casinos skyrockets
    Now comes the crucial turning point in Munger’s crime-thriller: “Many people, particularly foreigners with savings to invest, regarded this situation as disgraceful. After all, they reasoned, it was just common sense for lenders to avoid gambling addicts … They feared big trouble if the gambling-addicted citizens of America were suddenly faced with hardship.” They were right.

    Scene 5: Nations in denial rarely prepare for disasters in advance
    “Then came the twin shocks,” a plot twist borrowed from “Avatar,” “Wall-E” and Al Gore, the kind of shocks that most “optimists” (especially those hell-bent on voting Obama and the liberals out of office by 2012) always deny. So, “hydrocarbon prices rose to new highs.” Munger must mean a twist like oil hitting a scene-stealing $1,000 a barrel.

    Scene 6: In the later stages, get-rich-quick beats real work
    America seeks the advice of the “Good Father,” a tall ex-Fed chairman who suggests “America change its laws. It should strongly discourage casino gambling, partly through a complete ban on the trading in financial derivatives, and it should encourage former casino employees — and former casino patrons — to produce and sell items that foreigners were willing to buy.” Never happen: Not as long as Wall Street’s gamblers can make more in a year trading derivatives than most Americans make in a lifetime. Why “work?”

    Scene 7: Wall Street CEOs, economists, lobbyists love gambling
    Sounds great, many approved, “but others, including many of America’s prominent economists, had strong objections. These economists had intense faith that any outcome at all in a free market — even wild growth in casino gambling — is constructive. Indeed, these economists were so committed to their basic faith that they looked forward to the day when America would expand real securities trading, as a percentage of securities outstanding, by a factor of 100, so that it could match the speculation level present in the United States just before onslaught of the Great Recession that began in 2008.”

    Scene 8: Wall Street gamblers love Reaganomics, hate change
    Though Munger and his partner got rich in this bizarre parable, his plot turns dark as America’s “investment and commercial bankers were hostile to change. Like the objecting economists, the bankers wanted change exactly opposite to change wanted by the Good Father.” Wall Street “came to believe that the Good Father lacked any understanding of important and eternal causes of human progress that the bankers were trying to serve” by leaving today’s free market gambling casino operations untouched, so it could quickly return to pre-2008 “greed is very good” reality.

    Scene 9: Main Street investors join Wall Street’s ‘Happy Conspiracy’
    The endgame now unfolds rapidly. Munger warns that America’s investors, workers and citizens have become so jaded they merge with Wall Street’s self-sabotaging conspiracy: “Of course, the most effective political opposition to change came from the gambling casinos themselves. This was not surprising, as at least one casino was located in each legislative district.” They “saw themselves as part of a long-established industry that provided harmless pleasure while improving the thinking skills of its customers.”

    Scene 10: Politicians love Wall Street’s derivative casino: Game over!
    The 86-year-old Munger is himself a metaphor for America’s version of the classic historical cycle: He was an optimist as he and Warren built their $267 billion company over four decades. But sadly, his parable, his vision of America’s future, has no optimistic finale. Rather it’s reminiscent of Diamond’s “Collapse,” Bogle’s “Battle for the Soul of Capitalism,” and so many other recent reminders about how America just went over a cliff and how Wall Street’s casino-banks will soon drive us off a bigger cliff into the Great Depression II by 2012.

    Munger’s parable is more than a Hollywood suspense-thriller, it’s another example of the classic historical life-cycle of a nation.

    In the final scenes “politicians ignored the Good Father one more time,” the casino-banks returned to gambling in derivative “securities with extreme financial leverage. A couple of economic messes followed, during which every constituency tried to avoid hardship by deflecting it to others. Much counterproductive governmental action was taken, and the country’s credit was reduced to tatters. America is now under new management, using a new governmental system. It also has a new nickname: Sorrowland.”

    Epilogue: Your moral dilemma: a no-win scenario or historical destiny?
    Do we really have a choice? Ask yourself, what’s ahead after 2012? Can you see beyond a destructive campaign: Obama at war with Palin and the “Tea Party of No?” What are the long-term prospects of our “civilization.” Do you share Munger’s dark vision?

    Or does the USA Today/Gallup Poll tell you guys like Munger, Buffett and Volker do “lack any understanding of important and eternal causes of human progress that the bankers are trying to serve” with their gambling casinos. “Optimists” in those polls are just politicians, bankers and citizens like you, in denial, can’t hear the warnings. So we get no changes, no action, no preparations because at this stage in the long-term historical cycle, optimism has turned into our worse enemy, wishful-thinking.

    Solution? Get into action, let’s launch the “Second American Revolution.” Got any constructive, optimistic strategies? Share them. Add your comments.

    Not me. I’m not in Denial. I will fight before I live in a Socialist/Marxist/Communist country.

  153. rosehips says:

    yes, foxy. but you are fighting for an ideal that doesn’t exist.

    I guess we are just a nation of ideologues. I realize I am one too.

  154. rosehips says:

    by the very nature of the word “denial”, you would never admit you are in it. 😉

  155. rosehips says:

    let’s all march to the beat. We are communists. We submit to our leaders. We know that we will be crushed if we wander from the doctrines we live by.
    Is this really how you see the USA foxy?

  156. rosehips says:

    sorry, is this what you think the USA is moving toward?

  157. rosehips says:

    We’ve come a long way…

  158. m2 says:

    Hey fox n rosehips-

    where’s VF?
    Anyway, what’s the diff between homeowners buying what they can’t afford (more like ACORN shoving illegals and poor into homes they can’t afford and frankly shouldn’t have), and Obama quadrupling our deficit in a year, and bankrupting the country… for sure.

    The diff is him lecturing others about how not to spend money in Vegas like he’s some ordained clergy destined to determine our choices, some royal prince who is the only “fit” person to micromanage all these “dumb” Americans. LOL.

    The problem is the political class.

    And apparently over 80% of ppl know it. …Now.

    Too bad they were glazed over in 2008.
    Anyway, I have to go ….

  159. Foxwood says:

    “yes, foxy. but you are fighting for an ideal that doesn’t exist. ”

    I think not Rosey and that goes for 60% of the rest on America…

    Are you saying Communism is already here?

  160. Foxwood says:

    Your comment, like what the President is doing is meant to weaken American spirits…

  161. Foxwood says:

    Your puny Jedi mind trick don’t work on me…

  162. Foxwood says:

    Yes The red Rose is Communist.

  163. Foxwood says:

    I hear Cuba is a nice Communist country to live in…

    Vermont Scuttles Plans for Reactor

    By REBECCA SMITH
    The Vermont Senate blocked efforts by Entergy Corp. to win a 20-year license renewal for its Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant, an action that could encourage opponents of nuclear energy in other states.

    The Senate vote, which was 26 to four, marks the first time a license renewal has been thwarted, and it sets the stage for the plant’s closure by 2012, when the license expires.

    View Full Image

    Associated Press

    Curt L. Hebert Jr., executive vice president of Entergy Corp. at a news conference at the Statehouse in Montpelier, Vt. on Tuesday. The state’s senate voted against the company’s license renewal.
    The vote was striking because the state relies on the plant for a third of its electricity. In the past, license renewals have been routine, allowing energy companies to squeeze more life out of aging plants. To date, the NRC has renewed 59 reactor licenses, and 19 are pending.

    The vote, which reflected fears about safety after leaks of radioactive tritium were discovered at the plant last year, is a blow to Entergy, which had planned to spin off six reactors, including Vermont Yankee, into the nation’s first stand-alone nuclear power company, to be called Enexus Energy Corp.

    You’ve got to stop with those waves, Rosey…

  167. Foxwood says:

    Nuclear energy… Now that’s moveing forward…

  168. rosehips says:

    hey m2!

    well, I am not condoning obama for increasing the deficit. I am just pointing out that capitalism is not the fix-all for our problems. I have to shake my head when I hear people talk like our old way of doing business is going to save us. omg. and you think I”m naive????

    I’m sorry if my cynicism is counter-productive. I can’t pretend that there is anyone or any way of thinking that can save us, save of course for my vision of voluntary simplicity and love as the rule of the day. Peace my breathren! lol

  169. Foxwood says:

    “capitalism is not the fix-all for our problems.”

    Something a Communist/Marxist would say…

  170. Foxwood says:

    “and you think I”m naive”

    I don’t think your naive… Your indoctrinated into Communism…

  171. Foxwood says:

    If you haven’t noticed…I’m not trying to change you, but point out what you are…

  172. Foxwood says:

    “by the very nature of the word “denial”, you would never admit you are in it.”

    by the very nature of the word Communist, you would never admit you are in it.

  173. rosehips says:

    indoctrinated into Communism? hahaha foxy, I hate to sound condescending but you have been listening to Glen Beck too much. I am not a communist. I do not advocate for communism. I love freedom. I support religious freedom. I support freedom of speech. I may support regulations that protect the earth and I may believe that capitalism is doomed to fail us because it is so vulnerable to greed and corruption. If you think that any inkling of communist ideology makes one a communist, then go ahead and call me that. Afterall, Glen would.

  174. rosehips says:

    foxy said: by the very nature of the word Communist, you would never admit you are in it.

    Really? could you explain this to my simple mind?

  175. rosehips says:

    It is noble of you to inform me what I am foxy. Bravo. You are the 21st century’s Joe McCarthy. Congratulations.

    anyone else agree with foxy. who else thinks I am a communist?

    foxy said: If you haven’t noticed…I’m not trying to change you, but point out what you are…

  176. Foxwood says:

    “capitalism is not the fix-all for our problems.”

    Therefor Communist/Marxist sympathizer. Pretty simply put.

  177. Foxwood says:

    I’m happy to provide the service of pointing it out for free.

  178. rosehips says:

    brilliant foxy, so because I find fault in capitalism, I therefore am a marxist/communist sympathizer? okay. So then you are not claiming I am a communist, just a sympathizer?

  179. rosehips says:

    and what shall my punishment be, oh mr. mcfoxy?

  180. Foxwood says:

    “The goal of socialism is communism.” — Vladimir Lenin

  181. Foxwood says:

    “and what shall my punishment be, oh mr. mcfoxy?”

    Canada… We just learned their Healthcare sucks…

  182. rosehips says:

    sorry foxy, but I find your mentality so eerily similar to mcCarthyism, which proved to be one of the abominations of American history. But of course, you probably strongly disagree.

  183. Foxwood says:

    mcCarthy is Misunderstood…

  184. Foxwood says:

    That’s your indoctrination showing… 🙂

  185. rosehips says:

    and sorry if the irony misses the mark somewhere inside your brain, but the “love it or leave it” mentality backfires when one who hates his government uses it against those who oppose his monocular vision of patriotism.

  186. Foxwood says:

    “capitalism is not the fix-all for our problems.”

    Indoctrination…

  187. rosehips says:

    HAHAHAHA, of course it is.

    foxy said: mcCarthy is Misunderstood…

  188. Foxwood says:

    I never said leave it… Seems you would be better suited to Cuba tho… 🙂

  189. Foxwood says:

    Showing you indoctrination again Rosey. Never really learned history did we…?

  190. rosehips says:

    love it when I’m accused of being indoctrinated by someone who repeats himself over and over with things he learned in Rush 101 in-home learning. heheehee

    okay, foxy. sorry if I’ve been offensive. It’s time to go meditate on something sweet and innocent. wonder where I can conjure up something like that?

  191. Foxwood says:

    I love pointing out lefty ignorance. If one thinks of Capitalism as not being the answer, then they are an idoctrinated lefty, or a Communist… Which are you again Rosey?

  192. Foxwood says:

    I’m not being offensive… I’m being truthful

  193. Foxwood says:

    “monocular vision of patriotism.”

    Communism is patriotic too? When did that happen? I’m thinking since you don’t get Rush, you watch CNN (Commie News Net)

  194. m2 says:

    whaddup… I’m back!

    “I am just pointing out that capitalism is not the fix-all for our problems.”

    It wasn’t Capitalism that promised people that if they are poor the gov’t should mandate that they deserve a home. That sounds like Social/Marx/whatever to me. The anti-thesis of Capitalism. Capitalism is individual can do it on their own.

    But I don’t think Obama knows what “Capitalism” is though I’m sure he’ll say he is the biggest fan. Because his entire career was spent with ACORN working to MANDATE the Federal Gov’t create Regulations that force lending. i.e. “not Capitalism”….

    MUST SEE vid:

  195. m2 says:

    Remember when our president said he barely knew anything about ACORN, and he also set up a “fight the smears” site during the campaign. Said he only had been around ACORN briefly 13 years before when he was working with the DOJ (on what, getting minorities and illegals into Houses?)…

    The degree that this ass can lie is probably… his biggest success in life. Maybe that will be his “legacy”.

  196. Foxwood says:

    mcCarthy is who Communists pull out of the closet when they’ve been busted…

  197. m2 says:

    One thing we all know. Obama is definitely more of a Communist than a Capitalist.

    Now watch him say he’s all for “free market” today.

    Watch the snake lie.
    Watch him pretend that he will put in “free market” Republican measures into his flimsy 11 page “primer”.

    Then watch them try and force Reconciliation to end this charade.

    The snake is nothing but a liar.

  198. Foxwood says:

    What get’s me, M2, is that we have so many indoctrinated Regressive libs that believe him.

  199. Foxwood says:

    I hope the Conservatives walk out after telling him his problem is the unions and we need to start Healthcare from scratch.

  200. m2 says:

    well now, rosehips I’m sure doesn’t believe him.

    The trouble is they believe socialism is the way even though Europe is in WAAAAY worse situation than us.

    The dirty secret is, all that Nancy, Reid and Franks propagandizing that capitalism failed us in 2008, or “the lost decade”… is the opposite. Capitalism is the only thing that’s keeping us in better condition than the Greece, EU, Spain, etc.

    It’s Socialist mandates on the free market that poison, and Union/State pensions & defunct production that “fails” us.

    Obviously.

  201. m2 says:

    In fact, the recession is widely agreed to have started in December of 2007. Democrats controlled congress from January of 2007. Schumer especially opened up the “non” oversight on Wall Street so they could grab money from the big guns like who, Madoff? etc, and simultaneously ruin the housing market through mandated Wall Street greed (you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours- Dems to fat cats) and Fannie/Freddie debacle.

  202. Foxwood says:

    Obvious only to true Capitalists…

  203. m2 says:

    well I am expecting that the thing is going to be useless today. Obama will simply tell Republicans he’ll put in their measures.

    LIES LIES LIES.

    He only has an outline to discuss. Theoretically he can say anything. It’s all bullshit.

  204. Foxwood says:

    The “non-monocular vision patriot” otherwise known as Socialist, doesn’t understand the free market. They talk, but then again they lie or have been lied to.

  205. m2 says:

    Not all of them disregard the facts… there are many that wake up and see the snake oil for what it is, actually!

  206. Foxwood says:

    This chart shows when the Dems took over Congress, M2.

    http://www.miseryindex.us/customindexbymonth.asp

  207. m2 says:

    when facts become to cumbersome for those who choose to disbelieve they use the politics of personal destruction. “race card” “mcCarthy card”, etc. etc. (sorry rose, I’m not talking about you specifically but we can’t deny the defense system of a liberal)…

    But some people see the writing on the wall.

  208. m2 says:

    I remember Bush had a really low unemployment rate.

    Too bad Franks and friends wouldn’t listen to the Republicans about Fannie Mae Freddie Mac getting totally out of control.

    Now we tax payers are footing 6 trill for their Greed… and of course, it all helps Democrats create more misery and spend more money, and endless circle.

  209. Foxwood says:

    When they don’t like the facts, they ignore them…

    Hence the term ignorant.

  210. m2 says:

    and with that Christmas Eve legislation that gives them a blank check, it’s 6 tril to ????

    How much?

    When does it in.

    Oh but their execs did get fat million dollar bonuses this year. That seems fair //sarcasm.

  211. m2 says:

    When does it in. ——> When does it end?

    TYPO!

  212. Foxwood says:

    “Now we tax payers are footing 6 trill for their Greed… and of course, it all helps Democrats create more misery and spend more money, and endless circle.”

    And they think we’re stupid!!!

  213. m2 says:

    I just have to say… Democrats don’t even stand for anything anymore but corruption. I mean we have one political party and one what? Criminal party?

  214. rosehips says:

    does this mean you agree I am a communist m2?

    m2 said: Communism is patriotic too? When did that happen?

  215. Foxwood says:

    “Criminal party?”

    Obutthole would have a better chance with Criminal Party than with Communist Party…

  216. m2 says:

    I never said Communist is patriotic?

    I don’t think you are a Communist, sillypants.

  217. m2 says:

    I don’t think I ever said/wrote this:

    m2 said: Communism is patriotic too? When did that happen?

  218. rosehips says:

    what y’all seem to forget is that I do not worship Obama nor do I follow his every word. So you can’t pin Obama’s failures on me.

    m2 said: It wasn’t Capitalism that promised people that if they are poor the gov’t should mandate that they deserve a home. That sounds like Social/Marx/whatever to me. The anti-thesis of Capitalism. Capitalism is individual can do it on their own.

  219. m2 says:

    See now they could have not killed their party by actually PUNISHING the corruption. But as it stands, it’s ridiculous. So ridiculous, even Howard Dean is fighting. I mean, well I guess they’d have to start with the joke at the top. The lie known as Obama. They can also do the world a favor and lock up George Soros. But they just can’t part from the moneeeeeeeyyyyyyy…. drool!

  220. rosehips says:

    sorry m2, my bad. should have known that it was foxy who said that…. so sorry.

    m2 said: I don’t think I ever said/wrote this:

    m2 said: Communism is patriotic too? When did that happen?

  221. m2 says:

    Rose, I stood up for you, I said you don’t believe Obama much now. I’m not saying your an Obama-drone.

  222. rosehips says:

    i know you don’t m2. sorry for getting defensive. 😉

  223. rosehips says:

    sorry m2, still reading the thread! can’t keep up! wah!!!!

  224. m2 says:

    I’m not really trying to put down the Democrat party, but if they want to maintain a party, they need to clean house and stand for something rather than destruction for their own power/greed.

  225. Foxwood says:

    “what y’all seem to forget is that I do not worship Obama nor do I follow his every word.”

    I believe I heard the term “parallel universe” yesterday…

  226. m2 says:

    Well fox, in all honesty- it’s not fair to rosehips to allude she’s a commie. Unless you mean it jokingly, which some readers might not get you know? Maybe she didn’t get it and thus accuses you of McCarthy witch-hunt… you see.

  227. Foxwood says:

    When she want to piss off the blog and say it’s all over in America… I’ll piss her off and call her a Commie babe. She’s not a free marketer.. . even if she says so.

  228. m2 says:

    Anything that moveon.org says is Soros paid propaganda.

    I’m guessing Soros is going to be just fine from 2011 and on. The “billionaire entrepreneur” that backs Socialist destruction of economies… ironic.

  229. rosehips says:

    foxy, I find it amusing that you describe yourself so succinctly, yet you don’t even realize it. For you facts are things that can only be verified if they come from the mouths of your beloved heros. I have rarely seen such worship of non-gods as that you bestow on those you mimic in words, thoughts and beliefs. I may not believe that your mis-guided worship and indoctrination is good for you or those you may infect, but I will defend your right to say and think the extreme things you do. You’ll thank me later. hahaha

    foxy said: When they don’t like the facts, they ignore them…

    Hence the term ignorant.

  230. m2 says:

    Well whatever you guys are discussing is between you, I’m not involved!

    Hee hee… keep me out of it.

    So I guess I’m going to go get lunch and watch some of the summit… not feeling optimistic about this circus, dog and pony show!!

  231. Foxwood says:

    Soros would be a Commie Entrepreneur…

  232. Foxwood says:

    Facts for you, are made up by Commie and repeated by Regressive Liberals.

  233. Foxwood says:

    I never said you sould stop the bs you say…

  234. m2 says:

    Just to clarify, when I say ‘facts’ I mean literal figures, as in numbers. As in results. Not punditry talking points.

    Also, should we bet on the Community Organizer or the People? Who will be the victor today?

    ha ha…

  235. Foxwood says:

    Commies invent the lies, Regressive Liberals promote them, unknowingly.

  236. rosehips says:

    m2, I am rare in that I distrust just about everyone! haha

    Soros is not a role model to me although if people did their homework they would know that he is one of the foremost defenders of democracy in this country and he has done more to fight communism than almost any single individual in the world.

    I find just about any organization in existence will eventually become corrupt if it gets too big or gets too much money behind it.

    I know it is difficult for foxy to understand a person like me. He can’t label me, although his efforts to are amusing. My role models are people who really put their country first and their own self interests second. I don’t think they can lead us any better than anyone else, but I respect their integrity. It’s a rare thing.

  237. rosehips says:

    shows just how much you know about Soros.

    foxy said: Soros would be a Commie Entrepreneur…

  238. Foxwood says:

    “he has done more to fight communism than almost any single individual in the world.”

    I’ve STUDIED Soros, Rose. Do you read?

  239. Foxwood says:

    Oh, that’s right, You watch Commie News Net and read liberal trash…

  240. ohiobelle says:

    Hello everyone.

    Are we all watching the health care summit?

  241. Foxwood says:

    I’m catching parts of it on Fox News Radio…

  242. ohiobelle says:

    It appears the Republicans can speak only if they don’t criticize ObamaCare.

  243. ohiobelle says:

    Hello Fox!

    You’re not missing much.

  244. ohiobelle says:

    The only think I’ve learned is that Obama had a clunker when he got out of college.

  245. m2 says:

    hey, I’m back. It’s skyline time! LOL!!!!! Belle, you know that that is huh?

    I have to say, to Rosehips credit, if she were a commie, single-minded, Obama drone, she would be hanging out with Auntie BJ and others who only have 2 plays in ‘their book’ (—talk about narrow-minded). Instead Rosehips parlays with us, and is at ease.

    Lets focus our criticism where it’s due, Obama for starters, and the corrupted Congress.

    Off to eat.

  246. Foxwood says:

    It’s a dog and pony show so Obutthole can say later we have to push it through with Reconciliation…

  247. m2 says:

    LOL LOL LOL

    Yup. These guys are just putting on a show for the cameras. Nothing is really going to change.

  249. ohiobelle says:

    They are just saying what they have to say in hopes they don’t piss us off too much. I can’t stand when they ramble on and on and on and on. Blah Blah Blah Blah…

  250. Foxwood says:

    They are not trying to make a sound bite…

  251. ohiobelle says:

    Oh God now McCain is going to speak. UGH!!!!

  252. Foxwood says:

    There’s your sound bite…

  253. ohiobelle says:

    Oh God now McCain and Obama are going back to campaign mode. lol

  254. ohiobelle says:

    McCain made a good point. Why haven’t they killed the Louisana Purchase?? Why does Mary Landrieu get her sweetheart deal??

  255. Foxwood says:

    I wished the Republicans had the balls to say “We’ve given you the plans to make Healthcare better, but you’ve refused to consider it. FU!

  256. Foxwood says:

    Then walk out…

  257. ohiobelle says:

    They got rid of the “Cornhusker Kickback” but not the “Louisana Purchase”? That doesn’t make any sense to me. I don’t want Mary to get a God darn thing!

  258. ohiobelle says:

    Fox wrote: I wished the Republicans had the balls to say “We’ve given you the plans to make Healthcare better, but you’ve refused to consider it. FU!

    Fox, I wish they would do that!!! Obama promised this would be resolved today. That alone should piss off the Republicans.

  259. ohiobelle says:

    Gee Thank you Mr President for giving us 6 hours of your time before you bankrupt our ENTIRE COUNTRY!!

  260. ohiobelle says:

    All we need now is to have someone stand up and read the entire bill. haha

  284. samhenry says:

    Hi all – I have to get out to the grocery store. Blizzard expected.

    Congrats to Reubs on their brilliant opening volley. They laid out the key, points ALL did or should agree on. Alexander even provided 6 step by step items they all could agree on. The good part of today: The dynamic of the gridlock was uncovered. Pelosi and Reid were like evil characters in Harry Potter. They were really caricatures. It was left to lesser Democrats to make any serious points and be civil. How can you suddenly break into a televised session when you have been used to dark rooms with closed doors. Republicans have been the only ones debating for the last year and that is why they were all tuned up to win.

    Will check in later if the power is on.

  285. Foxwood says:

    Good afternoon SamH!

    Now it looks like the Dems are going to put on a sob story and what will happen if we don’t buy into CommieCare.

  286. Foxwood says:

    NBC and CNN cut and run because Obutthole is crapping out! Wait till you get the news on this Obutthole. Is your little dog still alive?

    I am watching it on c-span.

    I wish they would just figure it out already. Everybody wants healthcare reform but nobody wants THIS bill. Any bill that requires sweetheart deals and closed door meetings to get it passed is not good for US. They need to start over!!! Dems only want THIS bill because it is an election year!

  288. ohiobelle says:

    Hello SamH!

    We are getting the snow globe effect here as well.

  289. ohiobelle says:

    I am going to be watching this from my treadmill. I’ll be checking in.

  290. Foxwood says:

    This healthcare bill is to benefit Obuttholes Commie contributors.

  291. Foxwood says:

    I’m listening from the far right wing Fox News Radio.

  292. Foxwood says:

    Obutthole has spoken 57 minutes, but he said he didn’t count because he’s the President. The Democraps talked 58, Republicans 56. Oh but you can’t count the President, but I do. The Dems have spoken 113 minutes to 56. The Dems are running out the clock.

    Dirty tricks because they CAN’T win with facts. Regressive Liberals HAVE NO FACTS. They get their “facts” from their Commie handlers…

  293. ohiobelle says:

    THANK YOU JOHN BOEHNER!!!

  294. ohiobelle says:

    Fox, the Dems might be running out the clock but there is much more substance when the Republicans speak.

  296. Foxwood says:

    “but there is much more substance when the Republicans speak.”

    That’s always the case.

  297. Foxwood says:

    They think because they hogged the mic, that they are winning the debate. The “hope” and “change” they will get out of this is they “hope” the lame stream media can cut up the sound bites to make them look good, or they can “change” the context of what the Republicans said.

  298. ohiobelle says:

    The Dems keep repeating what they said over a year ago… “to do nothing is unacceptable”. Well remember the last time we fell for the line!

    That sounds like the indoctrination I supposedly got…

  305. ohiobelle says:

    Ron Wyden keeps using words like empower and reform and change which makes me think of ACORN and/or government corruption!

  306. ohiobelle says:

    Barry just wants to end this summit on a positive note so he can claim victory to the debate!

  307. ohiobelle says:

    WOW! Now according the Patty Murray we will all die if we don’t add the public option to the healthcare reform. We might not all die but according to her our Mothers will die.

  327. Foxwood says:

    Liberalism = BULLSH!T.

    Regressive liberalism is fed by “facts” from Communist.

    I repeat myself, because Regressive Liberals forget things they’ve just heard. You have to continually remind them their “facts” are BULLSH!T.

  328. ohiobelle says:

    If you were a fan of Boston Legal then you’d love this show.

    Good Morning my Fellow Patriots 🙂

    Obama’s desperate attempt to pass this Health Care Bill can only mean one thing. There is more control in it than meets the eye. He wants control of this Country and lets not forget for one minuet that We the People are still under a State of Emergency. Something is up with all of this!

  368. samhenry says:

    Good Morning my early morning colleagues in crime. I hope you are both well.

    FOX – did you get my W.C. Fields message above? Sami would appreciate it, too. Only a few seconds in is what I want you to see. That’s how it is in the Lake Ontario area today.

  369. samhenry says:

    Many Obama staffers didn’t want him to be sitting there moderating the Summit. They said it was un-presidential. Ah, but that’s what he wants. Just like Carter he wants to see that he can roll up his sleeves and have a beer summit even in a tie and jacket.

    He found out in a hurry that just because you come into town riding an ass doesn’t mean that palm fronds will be thrown in your path and the multitudes will be singing hosanna.

  370. Foxwood says:

    I think I saw Sami in that vid, SamH! And wasn’t that Kinky’s wiener dog?

  371. Foxwood says:

    I think I heard him paraphrase “I the President, I won”, twice yesterday. Like I said, Asshole in Chief…

  372. Foxwood says:

    Hmmmm… Seems the Republicans have had a plan for a long time. Now why would anyone think the Republicans only plan was “just say no”? Maybe because some people don’t watch real news of get real information.

  373. samhenry says:

    I liked the way Alexander beat Obama to the punch by making specific reference to points on which bth sides of the aisle were agreed.

  374. Foxwood says:

    “I’m the President”

    “We won”

    Obutthole is NOT Presidential material.

    Britons to hold Tea Party protest

    Conservatives in Britain will hold their first Tea Party protest in Brighton on Saturday, with British member of the European parliament (and frequent Fox News guest) Daniel Hannan giving the keynote.

    “Labour has raised more than a trillion pounds in additional taxation since 1997. Yet, unbelievably, Gordon Brown has still managed to run up a deficit of 12.6% of GDP (Greece’s is 12%). A far lower level of taxation brought Americans out in spontaneous protest last year,” Hannan wrote for the London Telegraph.

    Over at the Spectator, David Blackburn wrote: “Convened by those disaffected with Cameron and Osborne’s economic policy, which remains wedded to Labour’s, the Tea Party isn’t yet so much as a storm in a tea cup. But Britain is about to embark upon an era of higher taxation, with or without a Conservative government. Combined with those inclined to vote UKIP and the increasingly marginalized right of the Tory parliamentary party, the fledgling Tea Party is a potential problem for Cameron.”

    Rick Santelli at CNBC kicked this thing off a year ago, and the Scott hear ’round the world really was heard ’round the world. People noticed that the Tea Party movement helped give Massachusetts its first Republican senator in 30 years. Perhaps instead of the United States becoming European, Europe (or at least Great Britain) will tilt a little more in our direction.
