Actually. on a deeper level, it IS about race. But I want to hear your reason, Jay, for saying it's about race.

Then, I can take you by the hand and explain to you like the child that you are, why the Obama Administration's agenda IS all about race.

DJ, entre nous, you understand why I toss Michael Savage at you, right? (The ignos won't understand, but what else is new?)

You have singled out Savage as Numero Uno, for you, among all talk jocks. Right? Yes, the same Savage who applauds the man you now denounce as a puppet of the Boosh and the Bilderberger,

Buchanan to Buffett: Up Your Own Taxes

Tuesday, 16 Aug 2011 01:11 PM

By Forrest Jones

Warren Buffett has repeated his calls for higher taxes on America's super rich, most recently in an op-ed piece in the New York Times.

Good idea, says one-time Republican presidential hopeful Pat Buchanan: Buffett can write a check and mail it to the government if he likes.


"Why doesn’t he set an example and send a check for $5 billion to the federal government? He’s got about $40 billion. ... You get all this noise from these big rich folks. Let them send checks and set an example instead of writing op-eds," Buchanan tells MSNBC.

gringoNOTE: Critical of Perry, calling him weak on legislation, But alas, there's no red meat for wacko trolls on the left or Bilderberger buffs on the right.

1. It goes into real substance and detail.
2. It is signed by a human being. You even get his foto.
3. You even find out who he is and what his background is.

Rick Perry Has Good Ties With Muslims

THOMAS SOWELL////Someone at long last has had the courage to tell the plain, honest truth about race.

After mobs of young blacks rampaged through Philadelphia committing violence -- as similar mobs have rampaged through Chicago, Denver, Milwaukee and other places -- Philadelphia's black mayor, Michael A. Nutter, ordered a police crackdown and lashed out at the whole lifestyle of those who did such things.

"Pull up your pants and buy a belt 'cause no one wants to see your underwear or the crack of your butt," he said. "If you walk into somebody's office with your hair uncombed and a pick in the back, and your shoes untied, and your pants half down, tattoos up and down your arms and on your neck, and you wonder why somebody won't hire you? They don't hire you 'cause you look like you're crazy," the mayor said. He added: "You have damaged your own race."

http://townhall.com/columnists/thomassowell/2011/08/16/social_degeneration/page/full/

gringoman

SOWELL////what Mayor Nutter said undermines a whole vision of the world that has brought fame, fortune and power to race hustlers in politics, the media and academia. Any racial disparities in hiring can only be due to racism and discrimination, according to the prevailing vision, which reaches from street corner demagogues to the august chambers of the Supreme Court of the United States.

Just to identify the rioters and looters as black is a radical departure, when mayors, police chiefs and the media in other cities report on these outbreaks of violence without mentioning the race of those who are doing these things. The Chicago Tribune even made excuses for failing to mention race when reporting on violent attacks by blacks on whites in Chicago.

Such excuses might make sense if the same politicians and media talking heads were not constantly mentioning race when denouncing the fact that a disproportionate number of young black men are being sent to prison.

Chief Joe

When the chief makes a decision, that is the way it is, today. What kind of chief always talks and then says when he is perhaps no longer chief, then changes will be made? Our chief is spending the money of unborn children, and it doesn't actually get spent until several years in the future, and nothing actually happens except some publicity, and a little campaign money changing hands. That, is a bad chief. We want action, now.

Now imagine a chief who takes a second wife, and then a third. You tell him he should only have one wife and he says he knows, but she fell in love, and he does not want to hurt her and then just cut her off. Later, he has yet another wife. Finally one day he says, he will keep all of them. We want a chief that keeps the code, not just keep adding to a problem instead of fixing it, and then fixing it in the future instead of today.

Here comes the chief, with all his fat wives.

Dems pretending shock at Rick Perry's alleged "charges of treason" against Helicopter Ben Bernanke. They are even charging him with "threatening" Bernanke, due to comment that it would be "ugly" for Bernanke if he comes to Texas.

LARRY KUDLOW, business guru, CNBC, has reviewed Perry's statements and Perry's charge that Bernanke is ruining the US dollar by printing trillions for debt payments (meaning that the dollar is increasingly becoming funny money, the harbinger of hyper-inflation that will ruin millions of Americans with savings.)

KUDLOW's reaction to Perry: "I love it. The Tea Party feels exactly the same way, and I don't blame them."

BAITING THE OBOTS?

Campaigning in Iowa on Monday, the Texas governor said he would consider it "treasonous" if Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke "prints more money between now and the election" in November 2012 -- a fresh sign of the political heat the central bank faces as it tries to right the stumbling U.S. economy.

"If this guy prints more money between now and the election, I don't know what y'all will do to him in Iowa, but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas," Perry said to laughter from supporters in Iowa.

"Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treacherous, treasonous in my opinion," he said.

Many conservative politicians are also upset with Perry:

DOUG CASEY//// We should have colonies on the moon by now, and more: We should be mining the asteroids and developing real estate on Mars. There should be active homesteading going on out there right now. As you say, the technology for doing it is fairly mature – and would be far more so if the field had been left to the private sector, which always does things faster and more efficiently than the state.

gringoman

At a time when people are worried about basic things like having a job tomorrow and food the week after, why should anyone care about exploring space? Why on earth – or off it – would anyone want to move out there? And how would one make money off it, justifying the R&D expenses?

DOUG CASEY: Well, on the most fundamental level, getting out there makes the pie bigger for everyone. If it’s done economically, and for economic gain, we’re talking about whole new worlds to develop – that’s valuable real estate. There are vast new resources to make use of, ranging from metals in the asteroid belt to all that solar energy that’s just being radiated off into space right now. There’s the ability to manufacture in zero gravity, which has enormous efficiency implications, as well as other technical advantages. Space access is extremely valuable, and those who get there first are going to make fortunes. Mobilizing that wealth could and would create far more work than there are people to do it – not just in America, but even for the hungry masses in Africa and Asia. Simply put, adding to the net wealth in the world is good for everyone.

DOUG CASEY/////The future can be not only better than we imagine, but better than we can imagine. But it’s critical to get the state out of the way.

While I know the green tea party THINKS like the Confederacy. Am finding that many of them want to live back with our founding fathers.
Which is why have seen several comments from them that our founding fathers didn't have to pay the gasolie tax. And, some have told others to create their own state and break away from the United States.
They love to mention the Constitution. But, ignore it when it fits their own personal agenda.

Dgscol

Theodore Roosevelt realized "every reform movement has its crazies." He did not explain further but 1) the mere suggestion of change brings forth the abnormal from the crevices of life along with all the other stuff, and 2)the reactionary types try to make actual reform look eccentric,unusual, unworkable, and totally lacking in common sense.

Daniel Boone just wanted to be left alone, to appreciate the world in its glory, free from the exactions of greedy people, drawing lines on maps, who call themselves your governors. Now, there is a big difference between restructuring the government and its programs, and ... going back to the Garden of Eden, wouldn't ya know now?

Republican Obstruction at Work: Record Number of Filibusters

http://newsjunkiepost.com/2010/03/02/republican-obstruction-at-work-record-number-of-filibusters/


Clear Pattern of Obstruction

This is all part of the Republican plan to deliberately stop government from working, as part of a playbook to retake Congress and hamstring the change voted for in 2008, and one that is eerily similar to the one they used in 1994.

This playbook consists of 5 distinct steps:
Step 1: Avoid Responsibility for GOP Failures
Step 2: Increase Negativity
Step 3: “Throw the Bums Out!”
Step 4: The New Contract on America
Step 5: Retake Congress

Where the filibuster should have a legitimate role in a functional democracy to protect minority rights, it is a procedure that is highly susceptible to abuse. In the past, this was always kept in check by the morality of individual senators, but in the 111th Congress, the sheer number of times it has been used indicate a clear pattern and dangerous precedent.

The TEA Party: If They Can’t Take the Country Back, They’ll Take it Down

http://newsjunkiepost.com/2011/07/30/the-tea-party-if-they-cant-take-the-country-back-theyll-take-it-down/

There are 87 TEA Party congressional representatives out of 435 members in the house. 20%. Although they make up less than a third of the Republican side of the aisle, without them, the Grand Ol’ Party doesn’t have enough votes to beat the Democrats. They amount to what has become either a tumor on the tail that wags the dog, or the birth of a de facto right/far-right coalition party.

In their mind, they are the only members of congress with a constituency. This twenty percent claims to be the representatives of all American people. The TEA Party are, again, in their mind, the minority that should be given all the power of a majority, and if they don’t get it, dammit, they’ll make sure that no one else has it either.

Dgscol

Haven't we heard enough from Texas? The last person I wanted to hear from was Ann Richards, because she was soft spoken.

Although the movement to right the ship of state and its economy has gone astray, no doubt these economic issues will return as they must. In the meanwhile ... how about a short grandstander as a fill-in, with white teeth who looks like he can barely reach the helm? Already I have heard - he resembles Moe.

 M/M

Michele Bachmann opened her event in Spartansburg, South Carolina today by wishing Elvis Presley a Happy Birthday! How nice. The thing is, Elvis died 34 years ago today. He was born in January. So all in all, a pretty typical day for Team Bachmann.

Gringoman,

I like Savage because he is both entertaining and broaches issues the other controlled talking heads won't touch with a ten foot pole. Secondly, I do not regard Savage as an intellectual or political mentor. The man is sagacious but too emotional. Sometimes his judgement is clouded by the excitement of the moment; hence, he can be very wrong on many occasions.

How Rick Perry Created Jobs in Texas
By Rick Newman

Posted: August 16, 2011

It sounds like an outsized Texas boast, but the numbers support Rick Perry when he claims that Texas has created more than one-third of the jobs in the United States since the economic recovery began in 2009.

There's an important caveat, however, that the Texas governor is unlikely to volunteer: Virtually all of those new jobs are in the government sector, not in private enterprise.

{snip}

Total jobs. Texas: Up 0.7 percent since the beginning of 2008. U.S: Down 5.6 percent. Since the recession began, Texas has added about 75,000 jobs, one of the few states with any job creation at all. Overall, the U.S. economy has lost about 5.6 million jobs since then. But net job gains in Texas have come entirely from government hiring, which accounts for 115,000 new jobs over the past three years. The private sector in Texas shed about 40,000 jobs during that time.

Texas’ unemployment rate tells a different story. It has gone up from 7.7% to 8.0% over that same period. And by that measure, Texas has done worse than the rest of the country since the peak of national unemployment in October 2009: that month the U.S. rate was 10.1% and Texas was 8.2%. Texas peaked at 8.3% last December, dropping to 8.0% in April, while the national rate has dropped a point since it’s peak to 9.1%

From the Daily Bell:

In Rick Perry's World Without a Fed, He Can Barter for U.S. Votes

Asked about the Federal Reserve...[Texas Governor Rick] Perry said of Fed Chairman Ben S. Bernanke: "If this guy prints more money between now and the election, I don't know what you all would do to him in Iowa, but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas. Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treacherous -- or treasonous." ... If he believes this, he either doesn't understand the Fed's function, or is a peculiar kind of monetary extremist. ... If the Fed didn't print any more money at all, we'd soon be relying on a cumbersome and rather inexact form of exchange known as the barter system. – Bloomberg

Dominant Social Theme: Only a dolt thinks we could get by without the Federal Reserve.

Free-Market Analysis: The Federal Reserve began in 1913. American prosperity and economic growth began much earlier, in 1623, when Plymouth Colony abandoned communal ownership and production in favor of private property and a free market.

Since the arrival of the Federal Reserve, the U.S. has suffered its worst round of bank failures (three seizures, from 1931 to 1933), the Great Depression of the 1930s, the Great Inflation that began in 1971 (which has reduced the value of a dollar by 90%) and now the Great Recession. Not quite an indispensible institution.

The notion that without continued money creation we would revert to barter is a howler. The U.S. has had periods of a stable money supply or even a slowing shrinking money supply, such as the years between the end of the Civil War and the 1896 discovery of gold in the Klondike. Barter did not reappear, but the general level of price did tend to decline.
