White Guilt

Thomas Sowell:
In the midst of the Florida tragedy, there was a book published with the unwieldy title, No Matter What . . . They’ll Call This Book Racist. Obviously it was written well before the shooting in Florida, but its message — that there is rampant hypocrisy and irrationality in public discussions of race — could not have been better timed.
Author Harry Stein, a self-described “reformed white liberal,” raised by parents who were even further to the left, exposes the illogic and outright fraudulence that lies behind so much of what is said about race in the media, in politics, and in our educational institutions. He asks a very fundamental question: “Why, even after the Duke University rape fiasco, does the media continue to give credence to every charge of racism?”
Harry Stein credits Shelby Steele’s book White Guilt with opening his eyes to one of the sources of many counterproductive things said and done about race today — namely, guilt about what was done to blacks and other minorities in the past.
Let us talk sense, like adults. Nothing that is done to George Zimmerman — justly or unjustly — will unlynch a single black man who was tortured and killed in the Jim Crow South for a crime he didn’t commit.
Letting hoodlums get away with hoodlumism today does not undo a single injustice of the past. It is not even a favor to the hoodlums, for many of whom this is just the first step on a path that leads to the penitentiary, and maybe to the execution chamber.
Winston Churchill said, “If the past sits in judgment on the present, the future will be lost.” He wasn’t talking about racial issues, but what he said applies especially where race is involved.
In my humble opinion,one of the best ways to heal the racial divide in this country is for whites to stop feeling guilty about slavery and past racial crimes that we have had nothing to do with.I have never owned a slave!I have never lynched anyone!I have never been or ever will be a member of the Klan!Because of this,I refuse to be made to feel guilty for any act of racism committed by anyone at anytime!

Until white America has an epiphany,that they have done nothing wrong and have nothing to be ashamed of,they will continue to be held hostage by the race pimps,who profit from their guilty conscience.The day we let the past go and no longer seek forgiveness from blacks for the sins of our fathers,then we will look upon one another as equals and move forward to a more racially unified country.

Nailing Energy Producers To The Cross Of Big Government

From Michelle Malkin:

Environmental Protection Agency administrator Al Armendariz, an avowed greenie on leave from Southern Methodist University, gave a little-noticed speech in 2010 outlining his sadistic philosophy. “I was in a meeting once, and I gave an analogy to my staff about my philosophy of enforcement, and I think it was probably a little crude and maybe not appropriate for the meeting, but I’ll go ahead and tell you what I said,” he began. In a video obtained and released by Sen. James Inhofe (R., Okla.), Armendariz then shared his bloody analogy:
It was kind of like how the Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean. They’d go into a little Turkish town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw, and they would crucify them. And then you know that town was really easy to manage for the next few years. . . . So, that’s our general philosophy.
Echoing President Obama’s “punch back twice as hard” treatment of his political enemies, Armendariz explained to his underlings: “You hit them as hard as you can, and you make examples out of them, and there is a deterrent effect there. And, companies that are smart see that, they don’t want to play that game, and they decide at that point that it’s time to clean up.”
In other words: Suck up, fly left, or face prosecution. The goal isn’t a cleaner environment. The goal is political incitement of fear.
The EPA,with the rest of the alphabet soup,bureaucratic agencies of tyranny,that RULE this country with an iron fist,not through the law,but through ordinances and regulations,need to be dumped on the ash heap of history!

'Your Silver Has Become Dross'

From Godfather Politics:
There was a time in our nation’s history (not long ago) when goods were purchased with gold and silver coins, or paper dollars that could be redeemed in gold and silver (gold and silver certificates representing owner‑ or bank‑held gold and silver). Gold coinage ceased in 1934 by governmental decree. The mints produced the last silver dollars in 1935; silver quarters, half‑dollars, and dimes were discontinued for general circulation in 1965.
The poor usually are the first affected by the debasement of money because they receive the ability to purchase goods when the effects of inflation already have ravaged the economy. The poor may be unemployed or hold low paying jobs with little or no increases in salary. If inflation increases 10‑15% per year and wages only 2‑5%, a reduction in purchasing power results. Of course, those not able to work or dependent on charity, experience an even more grievous condition. The Bible maintains that inflation has its greatest effects on widows and orphans:
“Your silver has become dross, your drink diluted with water. Your rulers are rebels, and companions of thieves; every one loves a bribe, and chases after rewards. They do not defend the orphan, nor does the widow’s plea come before them” (Isaiah 1:22–23).
The very policies instituted by politicians to help the poor created the massive debt that now has turned on the poor and made them even more dependent upon government assistance. To deliver the promised programs of prosperity, the federal government took our nation off the gold standard and inflated the dollar with more and more paper “currency,” since the gold standard prohibited our political leaders from tampering with the money supply.
When the official protector of weights and measures, the civil magistrate, disregards commandments regarding sound money, what stops the general populace from gouging the poor as well?
Isaiah 1:22-23 really hits the nail on the head where our government is concerned.How things change but they really stay the same.

Again,who is the ONLY candidate that supports sound money?Yes,you would be right,Ron Paul.

'Merchants Of Despair'

If we want those 30 million conservatives that do not vote to turn out in November,we need to stop nominating men like George H. W. Bush,Bob Dole,George W. Bush,John McCain,and this years presumptive nominee,Mitt Romney.In the case of Romney,I'm still 'hopeing against hope' Ron Paul will find enough delegates to at least force the GOP to find another nominee,if he can not be its nominee himself.

They Had 'Nothing To Do'

Mark Steyn puts the Secret Service scandal in Columbia in proper perspective:
Twenty-one U.S. public servants. Twenty-one Colombian whores. Unless a couple of the senior guys splashed out for the two-girl special. “Some of them were saying they didn’t know they were prostitutes,” explained Congressman Peter King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee.
“Some are saying they were women at the bar.”
Amazing to hear government agents channeling Dudley Moore in Arthur: “You’re a hooker? I thought I was doing so well.” It turns out U.S. Secret Service agents are the only men who can walk into a Colombian nightclub and not spot the professionals. Are they really the guys you want protecting the president?
Congress is not happy about this. “It was totally wrong to take a foreign national back to a hotel when the president is about to arrive,” said Representative King.
It’s wrong to take a “foreign national” up to the room, but it would have been okay if she’d been from Des Moines? We’re all in favor of outsourcing, but in compliance with Section 27(e)viii of the PATRIOT Act this is the one job Americans will do?
With respect to the congressman, sometimes it helps to step back and consider the bigger picture. Why were 21 officials of the United States government able to enjoy a night of pleasure with 21 prostitutes, whether “foreign nationals” or all-American? The answer isn’t difficult. Indeed, one retired agent spelled it out: “They just didn’t have anything to do.”
So they did Dania Suarez and her friends instead.
The 21 dedicated public servants jetted in on the so-called car-planes, the big transports flying in the tinted-windowed black Suburbans for the presidential motorcade. The “car-plane” guys show up a few days in advance, but usually two weeks or so after the really advanced advance team has hit the ground. And there was nothing for them to do. There is no reason for them to be there.
I’ve written before about the U.S. government’s motorcade culture. Just last month, it cost U.S. taxpayers half a million bucks to fly Obama and David Cameron to Dayton, Ohio, to pretend to enjoy a basketball game. I’ve attended previous “Summits of the Americas” and G7 meetings and other international confabs, and always heard the same story wearily retailed by representatives of the host nation — that the money-no-object Yanks are flying in a bigger and more disruptive presidential entourage than everybody else put together. At this point, the local official usually rolls his eyes, and mostly, but not always, leaves the thought unspoken:

“Americans! What do you expect?” The Queen routinely turns down requests from visiting U.S. presidents to reinforce the garden walls and replace the windows of Buckingham Palace — for an overnight stay. When the U.S. was the richest country on earth, the mad excess used to impress in a crude kind of way: If you’ve got it, flaunt it. Now it’s the Brokest Nation in History: America hasn’t got it, but still flaunts it. Which is kind of pathetic.Does more equal better? No. All eleven Secret Service johns had their “security clearances” canceled. That still leaves over 4 million Americans (or about 2 percent of the adult population) with “security clearances,” and, according to the director of national intelligence last October, just under 1.5 million federal employees with “top secret”clearances. Which helps explain why one army private was able singlehandedly to download bazillions of (admittedly mostly worthless) “secrets” for WikiLeaks. Imagine the entire population of New Zealand with security clearances, and the entire population of Philadelphia or Phoenix with “top secret” clearances.

And yet the more guys on the payroll, the less anyone does. For all the hooker-cavorting among a bored entourage with time on its hands, there was no one to proofread President Obama’s speech. So he stood up in public and attempted to pander to the Latins by referring to the sovereign British territory of the Falkland Islands by the designation of its temporary Argentine usurpers 30 years ago: “Las Malvinas.” Except that his writers got it wrong. So the president of the United States called it “the Maldives,” an entirely different bit of British Commonwealth real estate half a world away in the Indian Ocean. Were the speechwriting staff also face down in the hooker bar? “Jush a minute, baby. Hic. The preshhhiduh wansh a couple rewrites. ‘I call on London to return British Columbia to Colombia.’ Thash should do it. Lesh go back to my room and I’ll show you my prompter.”
It’s not just the entitlements. Everywhere you look in the bloated federal Leviathan, all is waste, all is excess. But the absurd imperial presidency is a good place to start. The next citizen-executive of this republic would be sending a right message were he to halve the motorcade, halve the security detail, halve the hookers.
While everyone in the MSM wants to know what the Secret Service did while in Columbia?The important question is why did we need so many of them their to begin with?

The NFL And The Vikings Seek Corporate Welfare From The People Of Minnesota

From Yahoo:
's latest stadium snag has the NFL publicly questioning the state's interest in keeping the Vikings, and league Commissioner Roger Goodell is concerned enough that he is coming for another visit.
Goodell and Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney will meet with legislative leaders and Gov. Mark Dayton at the Minnesota Capitol on Friday to urge progress on the struggling effort to build a new home for the Vikings. By a 9-6 vote, a House committee struck down a $975 million stadium bill on Monday, dealing a major blow to the team's decade-long effort to get taxpayer help for a Metrodome replacement.
Why should the people of Minnesota build the Vikings a new stadium?The NFL is a multi-BILLION dollar business,why can't they build the Vikings a new stadium?

What the NFL and the Vikings are trying to do is to extort a new stadium from the state of Minnesota.If Minnesota doesn't comply,the Vikings are threatening to move.I would hope that Gov. Dayton would tell,Roger Goodell and Obama sycophant,Art Rooney,'don't let the door hit ya,where the Good Lord split ya,but we are not building you a new stadium.'

'Checking Out' The Secret Service On Facebook

From The Washington Post:
One of the Secret Service supervisors who were ousted from the agency this week for their involvement in the Colombia prostitution scandal made light of his official protective work on his Facebook page, joking about a picture of himself standing watch behind Sarah Palin.
My problem here,is not that the Secret Service supervisor was 'checking out' Sarah Palin.My problem is that the agent shouldn't have been on Facebook to begin with.

The Secret Service deals in sensitive information and with sensitive subjects,as well with protecting the life of the POTUS and his family and other high ranking government officials.For any agent to put themselves on Facebook,putting personal information on the World Wide Web for the whole world to see,is providing an opportunity for themselves to be compromised.This is not just foolish but dangerous!

Couple Arrested For Asking Directions

Here is another fine example of our increasingly thuggish police protecting and serving the people.

Margaret Thatcher On Socialism

You have to love Maggie.She is exactly right.when she says the left is only interested in,'the poor,becoming poorer.'The left,socialist,and progressives world over have only one desire,that is to make everyone dependent upon the government and not upon themselves.

'Lindbergh Kidnapping And Banksters'

The republican Mother has an excellent post on the Lindbergh Kidnapping.Their could be more than meets the eye there?

Here is a few random thoughts of my own.

1.) In today's culture of the anti-hero we really don't have any comprehension on just how great a heroic figure -not just famous but heroic- Charles Lindbergh was in his time.If he came out for or against any issue people would have stopped and listened to what he had to say.

2.) Lindbergh's maid committed suicide after being questioned about the kidnapping several times.
    a.) Was there a suicide note and if so what did it say?

    b.) She was under a lot of emotional distress from the all the questioning she was enduring.She used cyanide to kill her self.Why cyanide?Why not hang yourself,shoot yourself,or jump off a bridge,if your under emotional distress?

    c.) Was the cyanide in liquid or capsule form?

    d.) Where and who did she obtain the cyanide from?

    e.) Assuming she killed herself via cyanide capsules,were they easy to obtain then?

3.) I remember reading in Gen. Norman Schwartzkoff's book,It Doesn't Take a Hero,that he 'claimed' his father,H. Norman Schwartzkoff,was an alcoholic.Whether he was an alcoholic at the time of the Lindbergh Kidnapping.I do not recall.

4.) Did the Lindbergh's ever question Hauptmann's guilt?If so,who did they suspect?

5.) If the kidnapping and subsequent murder of the Lindbergh's child was a Progressive plot,to what end was it made?Did they believe Charles Lindbergh could have been an opponent to FDR in the 1936 election or what?

The Obama Administration Has Provided 'Assistance' To The Trayvon Martin Protests

From the White House Dossier:
A largely unknown group of Justice Department officials has inserted itself into the local Florida protest movement surrounding the killing of Trayvon Martin, assisting the protestors and attending their meetings and rallies.
While the officials are tasked with preventing racial violence, it appears that in carrying out their duties, they have provided significant assistance to those protesting the killing of Martin, who black, by George Zimmerman, who is half white and half Hispanic.
The officials are members of the DOJ’s Community Relations Service, also known as “The Peacemakers,” a special unit established under the 1964 Civil Rights Act and empowered to act to mitigate local tensions between ethnic groups.
Obama and Holder are not just spectators in all this,they are active participants in trying to foment racial hatred in the Trayvon Martin killing.

Swine On Swine Crime In Michigan

In the state of Michigan it is now criminal to own certain species of pigs under Michigan's new Invasive Species Order,making it a felony to own them.These 'outlawed' pigs are identified by their fur,skeletal appearance,not having squiggly tails but straight tails,erect ears,and of course,'other characteristics not currently known to the MDNR that are identified by the scientific community.'Most of these species of pigs are owned by small family farms.

To enforce this 'intolerable' order,the Michigan Department of Natural Resources conducted ARMED RAIDS on 2 farms for being in violation of the Invasive Species Order.One farmer to avoid arrest had to shoot his pigs before the 'thugs' arrived.

My guess is that the large corporate pig farms are behind this order.They are seeking to drive their smaller competition out of business,by manipulating the laws against them.After they have ruined them,they will come in buy their farms for next to nothing and create a monopoly by which they can manipulate the market and make out like bandits.

On a side note,I have been wondering how the elites and progressives are going to save themselves in the oncoming economic collapse and I think I know?They are going to control the food supply.We all have to eat and who ever controls the food supply,controls you.

For the last few years our 'betters' have been buying up farm land like crazy.I believe the largest concentration of 'farmers' in the world live in,New York City.Not much farm land in that asphalt jungle.

Also,the Obama administration has been trying to virtually outlaw the family farm with new regulations,that would make them 'too expensive' own.

This should scare the living daylights out of every liberty loving American.If the state of Michigan can violate the 4th Amendment and stage armed raids to enforce some wrong pig policy,what is to stop the Federal or any other state government to invade your home to enforce the wrong diet policy because you are eating pork that doesn't have a squiggly tail.

It is insane policies like this that began the American Revolution.Tea Party folks,do you know why the Sons of Liberty dumped the King's tea into Boston Harbor?Because the King created a monopoly for the East India Company with his Tea Act,by taxing all other tea but the East India Company's tea.Ever heard of the Stamp Act,were the colonies were forced to buy paper that was produced in London with the official King's stamp.

You may say its only pigs,big deal.Well you could say it was only tea and paper back then,but we all know it was about much more than that.It was about all our God given liberties.If the government can violate the smallest of our God given rights,its only a matter of time before they can regulate all our speech,violate all of our property rights,invade our privacy,and take away our means to self defence.

Joe Biden: The Face Of Greed

From the White House Dossier:
Vice President Joe Biden last year earned $20,900 in rental income from the Secret Service, which is paying him to host agents on his property so they can protect him.
Most high-profile people in need of protection pay people to keep them safe. Government officials are allowed to have taxpayers pick up the tab. Biden is unique in that he actually gets paid by his bodyguards for the right to protect him.
Biden’s tax records list rental income of $20,900 from a “cottage” on is property, which is reportedly being leased by the Secret Service and paid for at a rate that could earn him even more money next year.
Biden took deductions for mortgage interest and taxes that allowed him to report only $12,653 of the amount on his federal tax return.
Of course, the Bidens badly need the money. They only had an adjusted gross income of $379,035 last year. This probably also explains why they gave less than 1.5 percent of their income to charity.
Among the $5,540 in charitable donations were $1,000 to the UN World Food Program; $1,080 to the Northern Virginia Community College Alumni Scholarship Fund; $1,000 to the Diocese of Wilmington; Delaware; $360 to a breast health initiative launched by Dr. Jill Biden; and $50 to the Wounded Warrior Project.
This absolutely insane.We the People are paying Joe Biden rent,so that we can have the honor to spend millions to protect his hide.If we had any sense in this country,we would tell the Vice-President,'no thank you',and inform him he should purchase a firearm and wish him the best of luck.

Also,both the Biden's and the Obama's love to go around and tell us how much the care about the Wounded Warriors Project:

The Biden's care so deeply for the Wounded Warrior Project that they gave a lousy $50 bucks.Aren't they generous!

Like most liberals,Joe Biden is very generous with other people's money,but when it comes to their own money,they are a bunch of greedy misers.

Hat tip to Hell On Earth.

George Washington: 'Britian's Greatest Foe Ever'

From The Telegraph:

The American was voted the winner in a contest run by the National Army Museum to identify the country's most outstanding military opponent.
He was one of a shortlist of five leaders who topped a public poll and on Saturday was selected as the ultimate winner by an audience of around 70 guests at a special event at the museum, in Chelsea, west London.
In second place was Michael Collins, the Irish leader, ahead of Napoleon Bonaparte, Erwin Rommel and Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.
Now this is an honor that the Father of Our Country would be proud to hold.

Mitt Romney Serves Up The Kool-Aid To The NRA

Mitt Romney:
Referring specifically to the right to bear arms, Romney said: "If we are going to safeguard our Second Amendment, it is time to elect a president who will defend the rights President Obama ignores or minimizes. I will."
Mittens hasn,t always supported the 2nd Amendment:

Mitt Romney is the Republican party's version Bill Clinton,with the exception of being a whore monger.Willard will say and do anything to be elected POTUS.

'The Buffett Rule' Charade

Mark Steyn:

In the end, free societies get the governments they deserve. So, if the American people wish to choose their chief executive on the basis of the “war on women,” the Republican theocrats’ confiscation of your contraceptives, or whatever other mangy and emaciated rabbit the Great Magician produces from his threadbare topper, they are free to do so, and they will live with the consequences. This week’s bit of ham-handed misdirection was “the Buffett Rule,” a not-so-disguised capital-gains-tax hike designed to ensure that Warren Buffett pays as much tax as his secretary. If the alleged Sage of Omaha is as exercised about this as his public effusions would suggest, I’d be in favor of repealing the prohibition on Bills of Attainder, and the old boy could sleep easy at night. But instead every other American “millionaire” will be subject to the new rule — because, as President Obama said this week, it “will help us close our deficit.”
Wow! Who knew it was that easy?
A-hem. According to the Congressional Budget Office (the same nonpartisan bean-counters who project that on Obama’s current spending proposals the entire U.S. economy will cease to exist in 2027) Obama’s Buffett Rule will raise — stand well back — $3.2 billion per year. Or what the United States government currently borrows every 17 hours. So in 514 years it will have raised enough additional revenue to pay off the 2011 federal budget deficit. If you want to mark it on your calendar, 514 years is the year 2526. There’s a sporting chance Joe Biden will have retired from public life by then, but other than that I’m not making any bets.
Let’s go back to that presidential sound bite:“It will help us close our deficit.”

I’m beginning to suspect that the Oval Office teleprompter may be malfunctioning, or that perhaps that NBC News producer who “accidentally” edited George Zimmerman into sounding like a racist has now edited the smartest president of all time into sounding like an idiot. Either way, it appears the last seven words fell off the end of the sentence. What the president meant to say was:
“It will help us close our deficit . . . for 2011 . . . within a mere half millennium!” [Pause for deafening cheers and standing ovation.] 
Sometimes societies become too stupid to survive. A nation that takes Barack Obama’s current rhetorical flourishes seriously is certainly well advanced along that dismal path. The current federal debt burden works out at about $140,000 per federal taxpayer, and President Obama is proposing to increase both debt and taxes. Are you one of those taxpayers? How much more do you want added to your $140,000 debt burden? As the Great Magician would say, pick a number, any number. Sorry, you’re wrong. Whatever you’re willing to bear, he’s got more lined up for you.
If we were serious about reducing our deficit,we would eliminate the corporate welfare our government shills out,like the $600 million no interest loan Warren Buffett received a few years ago.

The Charade Of 'The Mommy Wars'

From The republican Mother:
I love it when they make the Hegelian Dialectic so clear. They're going to use the mommy war card, full of guilt and self-righteousness. Emotions triggered, brain turned off. Saying that raising five kids,  is hard work is supposed to put her in the good graces of socially conservative America. That's what they're planning up there at Elite-ville. Let's get the women vote riled up to turn out one way or another. Working on the ol' conservative base only after of making your life story both a punchline and punching bag for honesty is quite a lot of audacity.

Munching my popcorn watching the WWF spectacle that has become American politics, and wondering why more people can't see how totally phony all this is? You think I'd vote for these Romney Goldman Sachs characters because Obama is so awful. Honeychild, Awful left the train station 99 years ago, and there's nothing that any man, woman or child can really do about it individually at this point. I'll still be pulling for Paul because he's earned my respect. That, and I got to see how this delegate soap opera is going to go. Don't listen to what the MSM
This is just another shell game,designed to distract us from the real problems most conservatives and libertarians have with Mitt Romney and the direction of this country.Never mind that day by day our money is becoming more worthless.Never mind we owe more money than their is in the whole world in the national debt.Never mind that our very own freedoms are constantly under assault from both Democrats and Republicans.What we should be really worried about is whether Ann Romney as a stay at home mom had a real job.Never fail though,the sheepeople that conservatives have become are drinking it up faster than the cool-aid Jim Jones served up to his followers.

Here We Go,'Bill Cosby Blames,"The Gun'

Bill Cosby:
“We’ve got to get the gun out of the hands of people who are supposed to be on neighborhood watch,” said Mr. Cosby, whose remarks were the first he has made publicly about the case.
“Without a gun, I don’t see Mr. Zimmerman approaching Trayvon by himself,” Mr. Cosby explained. “The power-of-the-gun mentality had him unafraid to confront someone. Even police call for backup in similar situations.
“When you carry a gun, you mean to harm somebody, kill somebody,” he said.
I was waiting on someone to blame the gun and Bill Cosby didn't let me down.For the left it is always the guns fault.Never mind the fact that the evidence points to Trayvon Martin assaulting George Zimmerman,it was the guns fault.If George Zimmerman hadn't had a gun he wouldn't have been where he shouldn't.

Maybe if George Zimmerman hadn't had a gun,it would be him instead of Trayvon Martin that was dead.Maybe the gun saved George Zimmerman's life that night.Maybe if Trayvon Martin had not assaulted George Zimmerman,he would be alive today.Maybe in the end it was personal responsibility that was the deciding factor,not the gun.

'Our Contemptuous President'

Some Saturday Steyn,for your reading pleasure:
Which brings us to another aspect of government that Obama apparently finds a frightful bore: budgets. In free societies, the executive is subject to the creative tensions of popular restraint, legislative restraint, judicial restraint, and fiscal restraint. All these the president has artfully sidestepped. In the last three years, the United States has ceased to have any meaningful budgeting at the national level, with the consequence that Washington piles on roughly a trillion dollars of new debt every seven or eight months. This week, before the fawning toadies at the Associated Press luncheon, Obama attacked Congressman Paul Ryan’s plan to prevent America plunging into the debt abyss and at least keep its fingernails clawing at the clumps on the cliff edge for a couple more decades. Don’t believe him, sneered the president. “Hundreds of national parks” will close. Parts of the country will see “complete elimination of air-traffic control.” We will be unable to “combat violent crime.” Two million mothers and young children will wind up without “access to healthy food.” Anything else? You bet. The Ryan plan will doom everything everywhere — “the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food that we eat.”

“This is not conjecture,” said the president. “These are facts.”
Speaking of facts, in the last year the federal government has added the equivalent of the GDP of Canada in new debt. Who’s buying it? The Chinese? Not so much. They’ve got pretty much all the Washington IOUs they need. Sixty-one percent of debt issued by the Treasury is bought by the Federal Reserve — which is to say the left hand of the U.S. government is lending money to the right hand of the U.S. government. That’s one reason the dollar is in steep decline against every major currency. Indeed, had it not been for the French and Germans et al. inaugurating the new century by inventing a currency for an artificial jurisdiction with even less connection to economic reality (the European Union), it’s likely that the markets would have yanked the rug out from under the dollar by now.

Those 'Not In The Labor Force' At Record Highs

From Zero Hedge:

The unemployment rate drops to 8.2% for one simple reason: the number of people not in the labor force is back to all time highs: 87,897,000.

This is actually worse news than if the unemployment numbers went up.Remember what our mama's said about idle hands,'they are the devil's playground.'If people are not up and going to work,what are they doing?

Good Friday


150 years ago today the Confederate Army of Mississippi,commanded by Gen. Albert S. Johnston attacked the Union Armies of the Tennessee and Ohio commanded respectively by Gen. U. S. Grant and Gen. Don Carlos Buell.

At first the Confederate forces surprised the Union armies,driving them from the field.Soon though the Confederate units lost cohesiveness and Confederate commanders lost command and control,resulting in the Confederate attack to be rendered piecemeal.This gave Union forces breathing room and their defence began to stiffen,most notably in what would be later called the 'Hornet Nest',allowing them to make an orderly withdrawal to a defencive line near Pittsburg Landing.

During the Battle for the 'Hornet Nest' while leading a attack in the 'Peach Orchard' Confederate commanding General Johnston was wounded in the left leg.Thinking his wound not be serious,Johnston ordered his surgeon to look after some captured Union prisoners.Soon afterwards Johnston bleed to death,which a simple tourniquet would saved his life.

After countless attacks the Confederates finally seized control of the 'Hornets Nest',at a great cost.The few remaining cohesive Confederate units finally reached Grant's new line near Pittsburg Landing,which they broke as waves upon the rocks.

The next day (April 7th) Grant with the newly arrived forces of Buell launched a counter-attack.The Confederate resistance was stiff but they were far to spent to maintain possession of the battlefield.

Shiloh changed things.It took away the notion of a short war and introduced both nations to the concept of a very bloody war.

More Of A Case Of Celebrity Profiling Than Racial Profiling

From Reuters:

Perry's predicament began when he admittedly made a left turn from a far-right lane -- a trick his security detail taught him, to make sure he wasn't being followed, Perry explained on Facebook.
Two white Atlanta police officers pulled him over, but apparently did not realize they'd just stopped Tyler Perry.
When Perry explained his illegal turn was to make sure no one was tailing him, one officer allegedly asked, "Why do you think someone would be following you?" Perry said in his post.
Before Perry could answer, the second white officer started "banging" on his passenger's side window -- apparently taking issue with the window's tint, Perry told his fans.
As both officers "badgered" Perry about why he thought someone may be following him, Perry said he recalled his mother's advice:
"My mother would always say to me, 'if you get stopped by the police, especially if they are white policemen, you say 'yes sir' and 'no sir', and if they want to take you in, you go with them. Don't resist, you hear me? Don't make any quick moves, don't run, you just go.'"
But then a second police cruiser pulled up, and a black Atlanta policeman emerged. "He took one look at me and had that 'Oh No' look on his face," Perry recounted.
The black officer spoke "in a hushed tone" to the two white officers, Perry said. "After that, one of the officers stayed near his car while one came back, very apologetic."
Perry was released, but news reports do not indicate whether he was cited for his illegal left turn or tinted windows. Georgia law requires drivers to approach a left turn from "the extreme left-hand lane" of a multi-lane road, Georgia Public Broadcasting reports.
Georgia law also makes it a misdemeanor to tint driver's or passenger's side windows under certain conditions, according to the state's Department of Public Safety.
The Atlanta police department's Office of Professional Standards is looking into Tyler Perry's racial-profiling claims, E! News reports.
What has upset,Tyler Perry,is not that he is black and was pulled over by 2 white cops.No.He is upset that the 2 white cops didn't recognize who he was and give him the respect he is entitled to in being a celebrity.Instead,they did their jobs and treated him like everyone else who breaks the law.

This Is What Happens When You Don't Fully Vett A Candidate

One of the common memes about this primary season is,'at least Mitt got vetted.'Wrong!We discussed Romneycare,Mitt's flip-flops,we were even discussed Mitt's wealth,but at no time did we ever discuss Mitt's Mormon faith.Since we didn't discuss it,the left will discuss it:
Unlike Da Tech Tech Guy, who saw this coming long ago, some Republicans were shocked — shocked! – by Lawrence O’Donnell’s Tuesday night anti-Mormon rant. Others were mystified as to why, in an appearance with Jay Leno, Meet the Press host David Gregory casually asserted that Mormonism ”is the core of who Mitt Romney is” and – oh, just by the way, Jay — did you know Mitt was actually an LDS bishop?
These remarks by O’Donnell and Gregory were rather unsubtle hints of what our liberal media friends are chatting about amongst themselves, and perhaps some Republicans are too stupid to imagine how this meme might make its way into Serious Journalism. But here’s the trick: Rather than raising the subject themselves, liberals will introduce the topic of Mitt’s Mormonism by referencing criticism from evangelical Christians.
Bill Clinton was asked,back in 1992,whether he wore boxers or briefs?Mitt is going to be asked whether he wears woolen undergarments or not?Also,in conjunction with same-sex marriage,Mitt will be asked whether he supports polygamy or not?How about this one,does Mitt believe Jesus and Satan were brothers?or maybe this one,will you be a god of your own planet or not when you die?All this and more is coming Mitt's way very soon.

The Passion Of The Obama

Our president now feels a special kinship to the 'agony' that our Savior went through before he went to the Cross to die for OUR SINS:
President Barack Obama says the Easter story of Christ's agony and resurrection has helped him get through the tough moments of an embattled presidency.
The president got "Amens" from religious leaders at a White House prayer breakfast in the East Room as he recounted Jesus saying, "In this world, you will have trouble."
Obama says he's among those who sometimes question God's plan for him. But he says that's precisely when he recalls the "triumph" of the Easter story, and Jesus overcoming his doubts and fears before the crucifixion.
Let me fill you in on this,Mr. President,Jesus is 'the only begotten Son of God',you are not.Jesus is 'the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world',you're not.Jesus conquered hell,death and the grave in His Resurrection,unless you repent,you will spend eternity there.'At the name of Jesus,every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that He is Lord',at the name of Obama,well God just laughs.

What the 'Easter story' should help you with is your sins,sir.You should fall to your knees and humble that massive ego of yours at the foot of the Cross,confessing your sins and repenting of them,thanking God for so great a salvation that He has wrought on your behalf.At no time,sir,should you compare your 'troubles' to His.He is completely out of your league,sir.

Hat tip to Nice Deb.

Obama's Harsh Regulartory Hand Is Giving China A Monopoly In Rare Earth Minerals

From The PJ Tatler:
The administration’s harsh regulatory environment is harming yet more sectors of the American economy, rare earth minerals mining and electronics manufacturing. We use these minerals every day in cell phones, high tech industries and leading edge medical tech, even jet engines. DoD uses them in some of our most sophisticated information systems and weapons. American businesses want to purchase these minerals from domestic sources, and the US is among the world’s leading sources of rare earth minerals. A huge new source for one rare earth element, niobium, was announced in Nebraska just this week.
It currently takes up to five times longer to get approval to mine for minerals here than it does in other countries, driving investment, production and jobs away from America. From the time a project request is submitted to the time a final ruling is made, a decade can slip by and paperwork as much as 6 feet high filed and reviewed – repeatedly. Not surprisingly, when investors are ready to move on a project, they turn to countries that are ready to do business, rather than tackle the Byzantine regulatory review process here in the United States.
One of those countries is China, which also possesses large quantities of these minerals. American businesses are finding it easier to do business with the ChiComs than with the American government to get these minerals. Democrat Sen. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania writes that China is leveraging its position (and the Obama administration’s regulatory hostility to mining) to hold a monopoly.
How does China maintain its control over rare earth elements? For one thing, it controls production. The only mine currently producing rare earths is based in China. They also ensure that most of the supplies remain in China by deliberately limiting exports through strict quotas and stiff duties. These illegal measures operate to chill exports and drive global prices through the roof.
As a consequence, today American manufacturers struggle with ever-escalating costs of production, compromising the ability of American companies to compete and create jobs.
This is the depths we have fallen too,it is easier to do business with communist China than it is to do business with so-called capitalist America.

Politicizing The Legal Process

From Yahoo:

US President Barack Obama on Monday challenged the "unelected" Supreme Court not to take the "extraordinary" and "unprecedented" step of overturning his landmark health reform law.
Though Obama said he was confident the court would uphold the law, the centerpiece of his political legacy, he appeared to be previewing campaign trail arguments should the nine justices strike the legislation down.
In a highly combative salvo, Obama also staunchly defended the anchor of the law -- a requirement that all Americans buy health insurance -- as key to giving millions of people access to treatment for the first time.
"Ultimately, I am confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress," Obama said.
Pointed comments from Supreme Court justices last week during three days of compelling hearings have convinced many commentators that the court, expected to rule in June, will declare the law, dubbed ObamaCare, unconstitutional.
What Obama is doing is politicizing the legal process,creating an air of illegitimacy on the Courts potential ruling of Obamacare as unconstitutional,arguing that the Court is thwarting the democratic process.This is disgusting and totally predictable coming from a thug who believes that the Constitution is 'a deeply flawed document.'

The 'Final Death Sentence For The Fourth Amendment'

From WND commentary:
And now for the first time in American history, according to the Government Accountability Project’s Jesselyn Radack, Attorney General Eric Holder has officially and publicly declared “new guidelines that permit the federal counterterrorism investigators to collect, search and store data about Americans who are not suspected of terrorism, or anything …
“According to the Justice Department, law enforcement and other national security agencies can copy entire databases and sift through the data for suspicious patterns to stop potential terrorist threats” (“Govt. Keeping Data on Americans With No Connection to Terrorism,”, March 23).
Where in the Constitution do “suspicious patterns” – otherwise undefined and outside the jurisdiction of our courts – allow the government to put large and growing numbers of us into databases for future tracking?
Indeed, Radack writes, this gossamer of “information” is being stored “on Americans who are not even thinking about committing a crime.”
As of this writing, Mitt Romney appears very likely to be the Republicans’ choice to thwart President Barack Obama’s desire for a second term. Have you heard any objection from him on this purge of privacy?
And which government agency will lead in this final death sentence for the Fourth Amendment? Emerging from its customary deep secrecy is our nation’s (and probably the world’s) most immense spy center, the National Security Agency.
At some point we all have to admit that the 'war on terror' has grown to be a bigger threat to our liberties and our way of life than Al-Qaeda ever has been.

'Iraq Veteran Gets Tasered & Beat Down At Airport'

Probably only the ATF has a more horrible track record in their abuse of Americans than the TSA.Both of them and many more government agencies should be abolished.
