But how do you stop children in a candy store?

The US isn't Dubai, Spain, Portugal, Greece. Fiscal fantasy is its birth right.

Americans, makers of the world's reserve currency, are dollarholics. They don't even have to manufacture the candy. They can just print it up on the printing presses. Lesser nations can't do that, and in this case, everyone else is lesser.

True, the world is feeling increasingly glutted and satiated with these sweets. But most Americans still want the candy.

The world is still having some. It's not like everybody's teeth are falling out, is it?

Not yet.

BAILOUT BARRY and THE DEBT TIME BOMB (Jihad by other means?)


GREG HUNTER////The most recent record breaking budget does not take into account what we will spend in the continued bailout of failed mortgage giants Fannie and Freddie. The two were nationalized last year and, on Christmas Eve, the Treasury decided to give them both unlimited bailout funds for the next three years! There is a total of $8 trillion in liability. I guess the folks at the White House Budget Office are going to pretend that commitment doesn’t exist. Why is the mainstream media not asking how we are going to pay for the Fannie and Freddie budget buster?

Gringoman, that's not quite so. I understand that Greece has been busy printing up Euros, which of course devalues everyone else's Euros.

Maybe they thought they could get away with it since the dollar's been in such decline.

Monica:"We don't want to become Greece."

DJ:Greece will look like paradise compared to where we are headed. (Think a much larger version of Hispaniola minus the border separating Haiti and Dominican Republic generously sprinkled with Islam.)

Monica:"Stop...in the name of love for the United States we used to know."

DJ:The United States we used to know is looooooong gone as a result of the Immigration Act of 1965. We can give credit, in large part, to Senator Ted Kennedy; he was the front man who pushed for its passage. Ol' Chappaquiddick Ted lied to us; he sold the proposition under false pretences. He emphatically stated that it wouldn't change the ethnic composition of America. In fact it radically changed the ethnic composition of America. Now, thanks to Ted, we are being DROWN by a flood of turd-world-color. But then again, Chappaquiddick Ted is notoriously responsable for the DROWNING of people. Great job Ted, you POS!

This is what worshiping the god of political correctness is producing in Europe:

---

"Old Europe died in 1945. A lot of it was physically destroyed, but buildings can be rebuilt, and in fact some have been re-created exactly as they were before the bombs struck. But Europe's sense of itself, its individual nationhoods, its links with a past going back to the Roman empire, are gone.

What passes for Europe now is generic; its values include secularism, scientific materialism, making money, and entertainment. Its so-called leaders agree that its indigenous citizens are cursed with a terrible past best left behind as quickly as possible. The quickest way is POPULATION RELACMENT. And the Third World, especially the Muslim portion, is happy to abandon their wretched homelands for Europe's pleasure garden. But not to abandon the tribalism and belief systems that caused the morbidity of their states of origin.

The New Europe is to be, officially, anything and nothing. Unofficially, in reality, its future is Islam unless the tide is turned soon."

Ummah,

I'd like to see where Greece can get away with defying the Common Market poobahs over there and print Euros on its own.

Maybe Malzburg really is beating Hannity in NY ratings. I don't know if I should mention that Malzburg, recently divorced, is now advertising himself as available for a date. (He says only females need apply.) I have no idea if he's M/M's type or not, but if he is, it might put her in a sticky situation. Betraying Sean Hannity?

M/M,

Of course I didn't mention Bernard in the context of a woman's possible dilemna with WOR's Steve Malzburg who, as pointed out, is now broadcasting his availibility to ladies out there. I stuck with Hannity so that the possible dilemna (in wondering whether to check out The Malzburg) would be less of a problem. In fact it might not even be considered a betrayal of Sean---I mean in comparison with an El Bernardo. A gal looking into Malzburg, after admitting that El Bernardo lights her fire? Surely that might pose an emotional dilemna, a crise de coeur, as the French might say. Possibly even excruciating, no?

Gringoman I am trying to find the source where I read that Greece had printed Euros.

PS. If this breaks up the EU, it's a good thing in the long run. First of all Turkey is forever OUT, second, the individual countries will be Nations once again and they won't have to follow edicts handed out from the Socialists in Brussels anymore.

Well, if Hannity keeps putting on the Newt, who really should be called the Oldt, then he will lose ratings. He also keeps announcing guests, only to stretch through his entire show, then finally bringing the guest in the final half hour.

Meanwhile he makes his audience suffer through all sorts of corn and smarminess.

I don't know whether Obama's a U.S. citizen'
Growing list of lawmakers, talkers questioning eligibility of president
Posted: February 04, 2010

Tennessee state Senate speaker and Lt. Gov Ron Ramsey

Tennessee state Senate speaker and gubernatorial candidate Ron Ramsey has joined the growing ranks of officials and prominent commentators who say they are unsure of whether President Barack Obama is a U.S. citizen.


"I don't know whether President Obama is a citizen of the United States or not," Ramsey responded. "I don't know what the whole deal is there."

However, Ramsey added that he doesn't believe citizens are concerned about Obama's citizenship status.

"But I'm going to tell you something," he said. "When you walk out on the street down here, people don't really care about this issue."

He said dwelling on the issue of whether Obama is eligible to hold office distracts from the Republican message on jobs, education and fiscal conservatism.

"When we get off on sidelines like that, that's when people say 'aw,' they close their ears and don't listen," Ramsey said. "I'm not saying you're not right, Mac, I'm not saying you're not right – but that's not how you win elections."

gringoNOTE: Of course, this skirts what you expect the ignorant to skirt. Obama could be a US citizen and still not eligible for the highest office in the land if at least one parent is not American. No court, to this day, has adjudicated the Constitutional issue. Thank you, Republicans.

DEBT? WHOSE DEBT?


Rich Lowry

For most Americans, the Great Recession has been an occasion to hold on for dear life. For public employees, it's been an occasion to let the good times roll.

The percentage of federal civil servants making more than $100,000 a year jumped from 14 percent to 19 percent during the first year and a half of the recession, according to USA Today. At the beginning of the downturn, the Transportation Department had one person making $170,000 or more a year; now it has 1,690 making more than that.

OBOSOCIALISM: Killing Enterprise; Growing Government (The Great Blood-Sucking?)

The New York Times reports that state and local governments have added a net 110,000 jobs since the start of the recession, while the private sector's lost 6.9 million. The gap between total compensation of public and private workers has only widened during the downturn, according to USA Today. In 2008, benefits for public employees grew at a rate three times that of private employees.

Goldman-Sachs Corzine: Then-gov sided with unions against NJ taxpayers.

Public employees have developed an inverse relationship to the rest of the economy -- as it shrinks, shedding jobs and cutting salaries, they draw on a never-ending taxpayer bounty. It used to be said that the Great Depression wasn't so bad, if you had a job. The Great Recession has practically been a boom, if you have a government job.

Public employees can thank the union label. In 2009, for the first time ever, a majority of union members worked in the public sector. Unionism has been in a long, secular decline in the private sector (down to 7.2 percent of all workers), but increasing in government (up to 37.4 percent of all workers).

Tea Party Launches ‘Counter-Revolution’
February 4, 2010 - 11:02 PM | by: Judd Berger

The first-ever National Tea Party Convention started with a bang Thursday, as conservative firebrand Tom Tancredo used his kickoff speech to rail against "the cult of multiculturalism" and the country's "socialist ideologue" president -- and declare that the tea party movement is here to stop it.

"I don't know whether Obama's a U.S. citizen'

-----

Who really cares if Obama is a natural born citizen? Other than us bitter gun toting, Bible reading, anti-immigration, anti-trade, holders of antipathy towards people not like us, are the only ones who seem to view it as a serious issue. Of course the Obots dismiss our concerns as just a way of expressing frustrations. (Sound familiar?)

Besides we need to get with the new and improved AmeriKWA. It’s often said: “America is a nation of immigrants.” Now we can fit ‘illegal’ somewhere in there. So, isn’t it apropos to have an allegedly foreign born man with a phony birth certificate serving as president?

Gringoman as I was searching for the page where I saw that Greece had printed Euros I heard Rush talk about the situation and he states that none of the countries are allowed to print their own Euros.

I guess I'll concede the point.

I suppose this is one of the few times where a lack of Sovereignty saves the day because if Greece were printing, all the others would also have to start printing in order to get their cut.

Which would make the dollar the strongest currency again!

Turkish Girl, 16, Buried Alive for Talking to Boys

(Wait a minute, how can this be? Our leaders assured us Turkey isn't like other Muslim countries, it's "modern" and "secular" they keep telling us. So how come things like the following are common place in Turkey. The same Turkey that wants to join the EU.)


Story:


"A 16-year-old girl was buried alive as punishment for talking to boys, police said after recovering her body from a six-foot hole dug outside her home in the southeastern province of Adiyaman, Turkey.

Relatives of the girl, identified as "MM," carried out an "honor killing," reports The Guardian.

Police discovered the girl's remains — in a sitting position, her hands tied — under a chicken pen.

The Turkish paper Hurriyet reported on its Web site that police were tipped off by an informant.

The girl's father and grandfather were reportedly arrested, but it is unclear if they have been charged. The girl's mother was also arrested but later released.

The Guardian's Robert Tait writes that, according to local media reports, a postmortem exam showed soil in the girl's stomach and lungs.

The father had told relatives he was unhappy that his daughter had male friends, Tait writes.

Official figures indicate that approximately half of all murders in Turkey are "honor killings." More than 200 such murders take place each year."

Good point, but Linda Ronstadt stole "Heatwave" so I associate that song with her. I'm not sure if Martha %the Vandellas have as many hits or lasted as long as The Supremes.

The Supremes seem to have always been part of my life, especially aerobic classes. They make me feel so feminine.

This is so sad. The pretty one is the one who ended up on welfare.
