MORE jobs LOST - 23,000 this month

Quoting the ADP Employment Report:
“Nonfarm private employment decreased 23,000 from February to March on a seasonally adjusted basis, according to the ADP National Employment Report®. The estimated change of employment from January 2010 to February 2010 was revised down slightly, from a decline of 20,000 to a decline of 24,000.”

Racial Epithet - Put up or SHUT UP!

3/28/10 update:
1) The lame stream media expects Breitbart to prove a negative!
Really? Seriously? What has “journalism” come to?
I wish I could say that I am surprised -- I’m not!

2) Breitbart now offers a $100,000 donation to UNCF
if Lewis can PROVE “the N-word” was used!
Guess what - he will NEVER have to pay!
It NEVER HAPPENED!

3/26/10 update:
Dims took their best shot
& came up short on ALL COUNTS!
WOW! What a shocker - NOT!

The day before ObamaCare was tyrannically and dishonestly imposed upon an unwilling nation, Dims claimed that “some among the [Tea Party protest] crowd chanted ‘the N-word, the N-word, 15 times’.”

Yeah, sorry Dims, we’ve seen this trick before (over and over and over again).

The best way to fully understand the strategy behind this game is to click here and study the history of Cultural Marxism.

Quoting Andrew Breitbart at BigJournalism.com:
“As I have said over and over and over, the left has one trick that it will use again and again when its back is in the corner: shout ‘racist’ in a crowded country….

YouTube video shows that at least two of the men in the procession were carrying video cameras and holding them above the crowd. They have not come forth with evidence to show that even one person hurled the vile racist epithet…

It’s time for the allegedly pristine character of Rep. John Lewis to put up or shut up. Therefore, I am offering $10,000 of my own money to provide hard evidence that the N- word was hurled at him not 15 times, as his colleague reported, but just once…

Rep. Lewis, if you can’t do that, I’ll give him a backup plan: a lie detector test. If you provide verifiable video evidence showing that a single racist epithet was hurled as you walked among the tea partiers, or you pass a simple lie detector test, I will provide a $10K check to the United Negro College Fund.”

If you don’t understand why I chose the above image, then please study the history of Cultural Marxism.

Okay, that is simple enough. If the allegations are true, why would Lewis not take this opportunity to put $10,000 in the coffers of the UNCF? I’m betting he won’t -- I’m betting it never happened! WHY, in the age of ubiquitous cell phone videos and wall to wall media hype, did NOBODY capture ANY evidence that this EVER happened?

Obama's Dangerous Nuke Free Fantasy

Quoting The Associated Press
(emphasis mine):
“The U.S. and Russia sealed the first major nuclear weapons treaty in nearly two decades Friday, agreeing to slash the former Cold War rivals' warhead arsenals by nearly one-third and talking hopefully of eventually ridding a fearful world of nuclear arms altogether…

Obama called the pact a step toward ‘the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons.’”

The ObamaCare Writedowns

Quoting The Wall Street Journal:
“Yesterday AT&T announced that it will be forced to make a $1 billion writedown due solely to the health bill, in what has become a wave of such corporate losses…

Democrats don't like what their bill is doing in the real world, so they now want to intimidate CEOs into keeping quiet.

The consulting firm Towers Watson estimates that the total hit this year will reach nearly $14 billion, unless corporations cut retiree drug benefits when their labor contracts let them.

Meanwhile, John DiStaso of the New Hampshire Union Leader reported this week that ObamaCare could cost the Granite State's major ski resorts as much as $1 million in fines”

Obama's biggest fan - Fidel Castro

Obama, with his bald faced lies -- married to phony promises, clearly failed miserably in his pathetic attempt to win the hearts and minds of the American people. Hell, this phony couldn’t even win over his own party without engaging in the sleaziest corruption ever seen outside of Chicago.

But, Obama’s semi-stealth strategy for an absolute Socialist takeover has, to the surprise of nobody, won him one at least ONE big fan -- Fidel Castro.

Will America Breakup?

Quoting Jeffrey T. Kuhner at WashingtonTimes.com:
“President Obama is splintering America. The passage of Obamacare was a historic victory for liberal governance. Yet, its true cost may be that it triggers the eventual breakup of the country…

The bitter debate over Obamacare has exposed the country's profound divisions. We are no longer one nation or one people. Rather, there are now two Americas: one conservative, the other liberal. Increasingly, we no longer just disagree but we despise each other.”

1) I disagree with the author’s assertion that homosexuality is “immoral”. For my part, I don’t care what consenting adults do in the privacy of their own homes -- so long as they do not hold a gun to my head and demand that I reimburse them for the consequences of their behaviors. And, there’s the rub.

2) I do NOT advocate, condone or endorse either violence or destruction of property. That -- I believe -- is EXACTLY what the so-called “Progressives” WANT! They WANT civil unrest as an EXCUSE to grab absolute power.

3) But, there is -- absolutely, positively -- no reconciling the two Americas (and, there never will be). I no longer care to live in Obama’s America. I really, truly, deeply and sincerely would like to find a way to peacefully divide the nation into two (and watch from afar as the Obamanation sinks into ruin).

A spokesman for the organizers said Coulter was advised against appearing after about 2,000 ‘threatening’ students crowded the entrance to Marion Hall, posing a security threat…

A protest organizer, international studies student Mike Fancie, said he was pleased they were able to stop Coulter from speaking.

ObamaCare = No More AAA Debt Rating?

Quoting The Sydney Morning Herald:
“The bond market is saying that it's safer to lend to Warren Buffett than Barack Obama…

The $US2.59 trillion of Treasury Department sales since the start of 2009 have… raised concerns whether the US deserves its AAA credit rating…

While Treasuries backed by the full faith and credit of the government typically yield less than corporate debt, the relationship has flipped…

America will use about 7 per cent of taxes for debt payments in 2010 and almost 11 per cent in 2013, moving ‘substantially’ closer to losing its AAA rating, Moody's said last week.”
Click the image & read the rest:
Click the image & read the rest

So, on the very night that ObamaCare passes the House, we learn the bond market is signaling that U.S. Treasury notes might have already effectively lost their “AAA” rating -- leading to even higher interest payments on our soaring national debt.

But, the Dims tell us ObamaCare will reduce deficit spending. So, what’s going on here?

CBO busts the latest ObamaCare Voodoo accounting

The Dims are crowing about an alleged ObamaCare deficit reduction. But, this alleged reduction is based upon what they KNOW is a phony set of assumptions. And, as usual, the dishonest Dims are trying to ram this bill through -- THIS SUNDAY -- before the American people figure out their latest WHOPPER of a deception!

Click here for the CBO report which the Dims are using to support their LIES!

Click here for the CBO report -- requested by Congressman Paul Ryan -- which exposes the LIES!

Here are the basics behind this latest example of ObamaCare Voodoo economics:

1) The Dim CBO score assumes -- at the request of the Dims -- that nothing will be done to address a looming deadline imposed by previously passed legislation which will require a 21% decrease in reimbursements doctors receive from Medicare.

Doctors are ALREADY abandoning Medicare in DROVES! Even The Mayo Clinic is backing out! If Medicare reimbursement is cut by ANOTHER 21%, will ANY doctors continue to accept Medicare patients? Not bloody many! The Dims KNOW THIS! They KNOW they will be FORCED -- either now or later -- to pass H.R.3961, commonly known as “The Doctor Fix”.

2) The CBO score requested by Paul Ryan factors in “The Doctor Fix”. And, with “The Doctor Fix” included (as it was in the Senate bill), we find that ObamaCare substantially INCREASES already catastrophic deficit spending -- DUH!

3) Obama has SWORN that he would NOT sign any health care bill which increased deficit spending. But, Obama KNOWS that he is using LIES, deceptions and Voodoo economics to merely PRETEND that this pig of a bill will not increase deficit spending!

What a filthy, stinking pack of SHAMELESS CROOKS, THEIVES & LIARS!

So, what -- you might ask -- does this have to do with ObamaCare?

What is going on here is typical of all efforts by the Dims to “manage” the soaring cost of healthcare. In the “mind” of a Dim, we need only forcibly reduce the compensation to the providers and costs will plummet -- with no adverse side effects. Just eliminate the evil profit motive and all will be well.

Well, no, eliminate that evil profit motive and the goods and services will become less available -- or, not available at all. Any properly educated fifth grader could understand that. But, nobody ever accused the Dims of being smarter than a fifth grader (or, our “education” system of working properly).

Six myths about climate change 'deniers'

Quoting Bill DiPuccio
at Quadrant Online:
“There are numerous myths surrounding those who are wrongly labeled ‘deniers’. Most of them can be distilled into six basic accusations:

1. ‘Deniers’ believe the climate has not warmed…
2. ‘Deniers’ are not real scientists…
3. ‘Deniers’ are a tiny minority of scientists…
4. ‘Deniers’ are anti-environmental shills of Big Oil…
5. ‘Deniers’ think CO2 is irrelevant…
6. ‘Deniers’ believe humans have no impact on climate.”

I’m disappointed to see Mr. DiPuccio cave in to the false claim that the “current consensus” sides with the AGW alarmists.

It is my position that if there exists any “current consensus” among scientists on AGW, the consensus is on the skeptical side.

IF there exists any contrary “current consensus” among scientists who are currently publishing literature on climate science, it is my view that this is driven more by a financial incentive which is entirely corrupted by politics than anything else.

Three of four temperature datasets are tainted

Quoting Christopher Horner at Pajamas Media:
“NASA’s temperature data is worse than the Climategate temperature data. According to NASA…

Joseph D’Aleo and Anthony Watts have found NCDC completely incredible, having made a practice out of not including cooler temperature stations over time, exaggerating the warming illusion.

Three out of the four temperature datasets stink, with corroboration from the alarmists. Second-sourced, no less.

Can Nancy Pelosi Get The Votes?

Quoting Michael Barone at The Wall Street Journal:
“Are there enough votes in the House to pass the Senate's health-care bill? As of today, it's clear there aren't. House Democratic leaders have brushed aside White House calls to bring the bill forward by March 18, when President Barack Obama heads to Asia. Nevertheless, analysts close to the Democratic leadership tell me they're confident the leadership will find some way to squeeze out the 216 votes needed for a majority.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has indeed shown mastery at amassing majorities. But it's hard to see how she'll do so on this one. The arithmetic as I see it doesn't add up.”

Welcome to the 5th & final stage of AGW hysteria

Quoting page 8 of
“In Denial - The meltdown of the climate campaign”:
“[Anthony] Downs laid out a five-stage cycle through which political issues of all kinds typically pass.”
The 5 stages are described as
(I inserted the links):
1) A group of experts and interest groups begin promoting [or fabricating] a problem or crisis.

2) Stage one is soon followed by the alarmed discovery of the problem by the news media and broader political class.

3) There comes “a gradually spreading realization that the cost of ‘solving’ the [alleged] problem is very high indeed.”

4) A gradual decline in the intensity of public interest in the problem.

5) “In the final [post-problem] stage,” Downs concluded, “an issue that has been replaced at the center of public concern moves into a prolonged limbo—a twilight realm of lesser attention or spasmodic recurrences of interest.”
“In Denial - The meltdown of the climate campaign”
then concludes:
“The death rattle of the climate campaign will be deafening. It has too much political momentum and fanatical devotion to go quietly. The climate campaigners have been fond of warning of catastrophic ‘tipping points’ for years. Well, a tipping point has indeed arrived—just not the one the climate campaigners expected.

The lingering question is whether the collapse of the climate campaign is also a sign of a broader collapse in public enthusiasm for environmentalism in general. Ted Nordhaus and Michael Shellenberger, two of the more thoughtful and independent-minded figures in the environmental movement, have been warning their green friends that the public has reached the point of ‘apocalypse fatigue.’ They’ve been met with denunciations from the climate campaign enforcers for their heresy. The climate campaign has no idea that it is on the cusp of becoming as ludicrous and forlorn as the World -Esperanto Association.”

Judge Jim Gray in 1992 on Drug Prohibition


To be clear on my views:

1) I agree with everything the judge said.

2) I have undying contempt for those who -- today -- consume illegal drugs. They have more blood on their hands than the murderous cartels. Without the demand, there would be no cartels. Users are scum! Period!

3) That said, I have even more contempt for the (Progressive) politicians who created the prohibition on both alcohol AND narcotics in the first place. Yes, it was so-called “Progressives” who first created both. Study your history.

So-called “Progressives” have always wanted to tightly control what we put in our bodies. Just look at their current war against all manner of foods which they deem to be either unhealthy or even bad for the environment.

4) Of all the stupid, ignorant, destructive politicians; none are more so than those who make the consumption of a drug legal (or effectively legal) while leaving the production and distribution illegal. That is an unsurpassed recipe for maximizing violence and criminal profits. It is very hard to believe these politicians are really so stupid as to not understand that.

5) Those that claim alcohol is worse than pot are willfully ignorant.

First, the overwhelming majority of those who consume alcohol NEVER consume it to the point of intoxication. EVERYBODY who consumes pot ALWAYS consumes it for the SOLE PURPOSE of getting intoxicated. Everybody who uses pot abuses pot.

Second, click here and dispel the propaganda suggesting that pot is harmless and non-addictive. Pot is FAR from harmless and it is CLEARLY addictive.

I believe that -- over the last 50 years -- drug abuse has severely weakened the fabric of this nation (and this world). The nation and the world would be much better off if we could reduce the amount of drug abuse. As the Dutch have said, perhaps making drug abuse boring will help reduce the amount of abuse. Changing cultural attitudes will do far more good.

6) As bad as all the various illegal drugs are and as much harm as they do to our society, the prohibition of these drugs does MANY orders of magnitude MORE HARM to our society. Street gangs alone do FAR more harm to our nation (and our youth) EVERY MONTH than al Qaeda ever has in its entire lifetime (so far).

Decriminalizing narcotics will not entirely eliminate street gangs. But, it will eliminate what is -- by far -- their largest source of income (and allure).

I am not arguing against fighting radical Islam -- we must do so. I AM suggesting that we need to end the enormously counterproductive prohibition on all narcotics. How we do that will not be easy or comfortable. But, we MUST find a way to get ‘er done. The system we have today becomes more corrupt, more destructive and more counter-productive with each passing year.

The current system is not working and can never work. It will only get worse and worse and worse.

In Denial - The meltdown of the climate campaign

Quoting Steven F. Hayward at The Weekly Standard:
“It is increasingly clear that the leak of the internal emails and documents of the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in November has done for the climate change debate what the Pentagon Papers did for the Vietnam war debate 40 years ago—changed the narrative decisively. Additional revelations of unethical behavior, errors, and serial exaggeration in climate science are rolling out on an almost daily basis, and there is good reason to expect more.

The U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), hitherto the gold standard in climate science, is under fire for shoddy work and facing calls for a serious shakeup. The U.S. Climate Action Partnership, the self-serving coalition of environmentalists and big business hoping to create a carbon cartel, is falling apart in the wake of the collapse of any prospect of enacting cap and trade in Congress. Meanwhile, the climate campaign’s fallback plan to have the EPA regulate greenhouse gas emissions through the cumbersome Clean Air Act is generating bipartisan opposition. The British media—even the left-leaning, climate alarmists of the Guardian and BBC—are turning on the climate campaign with a vengeance.”

Treasonous Californian arrested in Pakistan?

Another Update:
The latest report (from CBS) remains unclear.

Update:
NYDailyNews.com has backed off this story a bit.
I have changed the quote to reflect the updated entry.
They now report that the story cannot be confirmed.
Of course, it’s possible the story was leaked prematurely,
thereby compromising any potential intelligence gained from Gadahn.

Quoting NYDailyNews.com:
“Pakistani officials say they've nabbed Adam Gadahn, the treasonous Californian Al Qaeda leader who has long been on Washington's Most Wanted list.

It would be a huge victory in the battle against the terror network, but high level US officials in Washington could not immediately confirm the report.”

Senate Report on ClimateGate

Quoting The Senate report on ClimateGate:
“• The CRU controversy and recent revelations about errors in the IPCC’s most recent science assessment cast serious doubt on the validity of EPA’s endangerment finding for greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act. The IPCC serves as the primary basis for EPA’s endangerment finding for greenhouse gases.

• Instead of moving forward on greenhouse gas regulation, the Agency should fully address the CRU controversy and the IPCC’s flawed science.”

2010 - Another Downer for Arctic Sea Ice Hysteria Mongers?

Every year -- about this time -- the usual Arctic sea ice hysteria mongers stand on the street corner and scream their prophecies of doom.

This chart demonstrates that 2009 and 2008 were a disappointment to the merchants of hysteria.

This post on Accuweather.com reflects what I view as the determination of the NSIDC to paint this year as being on a par with the recent minima of 2006-2007. Note - I believe Accuweather.com is about as free of bias as one can hope for -- all views are fairly presented.

As recently as 3/3/10 -- oblivious to an obvious divergence, apparent even in their own chart -- the alarmists at NSIDC were still asserting that:
“In February, Arctic sea ice extent continued to track below the average, and near the levels observed for February 2007.”
However, year to date Arctic temperatures are currently trending lower than recent years. And this has probably been a contributing factor in a recent sharp rapid rise in the Arctic sea ice extent.

With a vast multitude of recent blows to the credibility of the church of man made global warming hysteria, I suspect the alarmists at NSIDC are desperate for a new record low (for the last few decades) in Arctic sea ice extent. But, if current trends hold, they might have set themselves up -- yet again -- for a hefty dose of egg on their faces.

Time will tell.

Meantime, examine the recent trends in Arctic temperatures and Arctic sea ice extent.

'Scientist' proposes outlandishly aggressive partisan approach

Updated at 3:30PM MST

Quoting The Washington Times:
“Undaunted by a rash of scandals over the science underpinning climate change, top climate researchers are plotting to respond with what one scientist involved said needs to be ‘an outlandishly aggressively partisan approach’ to gut the credibility of skeptics.”

Further quoting page 2 of the Washington Times article:
“Paul G. Falkowski, a professor at Rutgers University who started the effort, said in the e-mails that he is seeking a $1,000 donation from as many as 50 scientists to pay for an ad to run in the New York Times.”
Isn’t that like Jim Jones paying good money for some surrogate to give a Jim Jones written sermon to his Jonestown Kool-Aid drinkers? How many New York Times readers does he hope to persuade to his so-called “Progressive” political agenda?

How utterly blinkered can this clown get?
