Spoils system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Spoils system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: In the politics of the United States, a spoil system (also known as a patronage system) is a practice where a political party, after winning an election, gives government jobs to its voters as a reward for working toward victory, and as an incentive to keep working for the party-as opposed to a system of awarding offices on the basis of some measure of merit independent of political activity.

Another Federal Loan Goes Bust - By Andrew Stiles - The Corner - National Review Online

Another Federal Loan Goes Bust - By Andrew Stiles - The Corner - National Review Online: As the government prepares Thursday to commit billions of dollars to bring high-speed Internet to rural areas, the biggest-­ever such project has collapsed.

The company Open Range, backed by a commitment of $267 million in loans from the Agriculture Department, filed for bankruptcy this month. Taxpayers are on the hook for $74 million that the upstart hasn’t repaid. And now the company, some analysts and a senior government official are blaming poor judgment and Washington bureaucracy as the reasons Open Range failed.

The American Spectator : Obama Under Water

The American Spectator : Obama Under Water: Obama finds himself in this upside-down state because his leadership skills simply aren't sufficient to make the payments on the big, questionable loan that the American voters made to him in 2008. Like those banks that were willing to extend mortgage loans to risky prospects without documenting their credit-worthiness, the voters gave the untested, inexperienced junior senator from Illinois the keys to the White House, simply because they were sick of the guy and the gang that had occupied that property for the prior eight years.

Zuccotti Park a health hazard: expert - NYPOST.com: Close this pigpen!

Filth-ridden Zuccotti Park is a breeding ground for bacterial infection loaded with potential health-code violations that pose a major risk to the public, an expert who inspected the area warned.

“It’s like Walmart for rats,’’ Wayne Yon, an expert on city health regulations, said yesterday.

“There’s a lack of sanitation, a lack of controls for hot and cold water,” Yon said. He saw at least 15 violations of the city’s health code -- the type that would easily shut down a food establishment.

He noted the lack of lavatory facilities, as neighbors repeatedly complain about protesters defecating in the area and the stench of urine.

Yon also pointed to unsanitary conditions in wash bins for cleaning food utensils.

“It looks extraordinarily dirty, and [the bin] should be changed once it starts to get dirty,” said Yon, who works for EHA Consulting Group Inc. Then he pointed to a pigeon in a tree right above where the protesters were washing dishes.

“There’s no overhead coverings. Pigeons are basically vermin,” Yon said.

He said there’s inadequate hand washing, the No. 1 culprit for food-borne illnesses in restaurants.

AP Report on Dearth of Black Degrees in Math, Tech and Science Missing Key Five-Word Cause | NewsBusters.org

AP Report on Dearth of Black Degrees in Math, Tech and Science Missing Key Five-Word Cause | NewsBusters.org: At the Associated Press today, National Writer Jesse Washington attempted to dissect the relative dearth of college degrees earned by African-Americans in "STEM" (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).

Not that anything he reported was particularly wrong, but in my view he missed the largest contributor to the problem, one that apparently can't be mentioned in polite press company. He used one word -- "uneducated" -- that started to get close but backed away. The five-word phrase he failed to mention, which could usefully carry the acronym "LUPUS":

Lousy, Unionized Public Urban Schools.

Former Democrat Congressman Scolds NBC's Andrea Mitchell for Defending Obama on Meet the Press | NewsBusters.org

Former Democrat Congressman Scolds NBC's Andrea Mitchell for Defending Obama on Meet the Press | NewsBusters.org: During the roundtable segment on Sunday's Meet the Press, NBC's Andrea Mitchell typically acted as Barack Obama's press secretary defending the President from any and all criticism lodged by other panelists.

Apparently having witnessed enough shameless advocacy from a so-called journalist, when Mitchell used the Occupy Wall Street movement to defend Obama's economic policies, former Democratic Congressman Harold Ford Jr. replied, "He's the President. Democrats can't criticize Republicans for catering to the Tea Party and not be, and not say to our Democratic Party you got to look beyond Occupy and be willing to do what's in the best interest of the country" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
