“Crony Capitalists” Challenged at Shareholder Meeting - AgainstCronyCapitalism.org: “Many corporate members of the United States Climate Action Partnership, including General Electric, Duke Energy, NextEra Energy, Exelon, and Honeywell all received economic stimulus funds,” said Dr. Borelli. “Pushing Obama’s agenda seems to have financial rewards. The coordinated effort between big government and big business threatens our free enterprise system. Policy issues should be settled in the public’s best interest, not as the result of back room deals.”

The Big Lie: How Obama’s Agenda Eerily Resembles Hitler’s 7 Points « Pat Dollard

The Big Lie: How Obama’s Agenda Eerily Resembles Hitler’s 7 Points « Pat Dollard: During World War 2, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) prepared a report of Hitler’s psychological profile. They concluded that Hitler’s psyche was primarily comprised of the following processes:

1. Never allow the public to cool off
2. Never admit a fault or wrong
3. Never concede that there may be some good in your enemy
4. Never leave room for alternatives
5. Never accept blame
6. Concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong
7. People will believe a big lie sooner than a little one, and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.

Does this remind you of a particular contemporary politician?

Socialized health care meets climate change fanaticism.


Surgery bans elderly patient over her carbon footprint — Telegraph


An elderly woman was ordered to find a new GP because the
“carbon footprint” of her two-mile round trips to the surgery where she
had been treated for 30 years was too large.


Avril Mulcahy, 83, was told to address the “green travelling issues”
over her journeys from her home in Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex, to the West
Road Surgery. The surgery wrote to Mrs Mulcahy, telling her to register
with a new GP within 28 days.


The letter said: “Our greatest concern is for your health and
convenience but also taking into consideration green travelling issues.
Re: Carbon footprints and winter weather conditions, we feel it would be
advisable for patients to register at surgeries nearer to where they
live.


“We would be very grateful if you could make the necessary arrangements to re-register at another practice.”


Mrs Mulcahy, a grandmother, believes the decision was made because she complained about a doctor.


“When I read through the letter, I found it absolutely ridiculous
they were saying the reason was to decrease their carbon footprint,” she
said. “I have been a patient at the practice for 30 years now, and
there has never been any problem.


The West Road Surgery declined to comment. Andrew Stride, the head of
governance, risk and customer services for NHS South Essex, said: “We
would advise all patients who have concerns about any aspect of local
NHS care to contact the patient advice and liaison service.

More Green Graft: World’s Largest Solar Plant Goes Bust Even With $2.1 Billion In DOE Money - AgainstCronyCapitalism.org

More Green Graft: World’s Largest Solar Plant Goes Bust Even With $2.1 Billion In DOE Money - AgainstCronyCapitalism.org: Yes yet another “alternative” energy company backed by the taxpayers has bitten the California dust.

Again, we are not against solar, or wind, or algae, or whatever else. I personally think we need to diversify our energy sources, especially for vehicles, in a big way. But we are against the subsidization of such industries, or any industry for that matter.

This is what happens when bureaucrats with wide eyed visions of revolution (I mean in this case an energy revolution) get hold of a pile of money. They make poor decisions because the price system is tossed out the window. But the market will bend the revolutionaries to its will. It always does.

Critical Race Theory: Of the Racists, By the Racists, and For the Racists: Picture this: you are the president of a major law school.

Articles: Holder's Revenge: Attorney General Holder recently addressed the question of affirmative action, and for how long it would be required. He answered, stunningly, that reverse discrimination has only just begun: "Affirmative action has been an issue since segregation practices," Holder said. "The question is not when does it end, but when does it begin[.] ... When do people of color truly get the benefits to which they are entitled?"



csl--- Mr Holder, you have just committed treason, by neglecting the responsibility of your duty, to protect all persons equally, in such a disrespectful manner as racial profiling or critical race theory as some wish to call it, i particularly draw alarm to the fact that protecting citizens from the violence of those who seek to use the word entitlement as a catch-all shield to rationalize inhumanity, as an attorney i had surely wished that you knew better than such. ///csl   -mjb

Media coverage now implies that the U.S. Supreme Court will determine the fate of President Obama's health care law. But nothing the court decides will keep the law alive for more than a brief period of time.
There are three ways the health care law could meet its end. The first, obviously, is the Supreme Court could declare some or all of it unconstitutional in June.
If it gets past that hurdle, the law also could be ended by Election 2012. If a Republican president is elected, the GOP will almost certainly also win control of the Senate and retain control of the House. While the details might take time, a Republican sweep in November would ultimately end the Obama experiment.
But even if the law survives the Supreme Court and the next election, the clock will be ticking. Recent estimates suggest that the law would cause 11 million people to lose their employer-provided insurance and be forced onto a government-backed insurance plan. That's a problem because 77 percent of those who now have insurance rate their current coverage as good or excellent. Only 3 percent rate their coverage as poor. For most of the 11 million forced to change their insurance coverage then, it will be received as bad news and create a pool of vocally unhappy voters.
Additionally, the cost estimates for funding the program are likely to keep going up. Eighty-one percent of voters expect it to cost more than projected, and recent Congressional Budget Office estimates indicate voters are probably right. But it's not the narrow specifics and cost estimates that guarantee the ultimate demise of the president's health care plan. It's the fact that the law runs contrary to basic American values and perceptions.
This, then, is the third hurdle the law faces: Individual Americans recognize that they have more power as consumers than they do as voters. Their choices in a free market give them more control over the economic world than choosing one politician or another.
Seventy-six percent think they should have the right to choose between expensive insurance plans with low deductibles and low-cost plans with higher deductibles. A similar majority believes everyone should be allowed to choose between expensive plans that cover just about every imaginable medical procedure and lower-cost plans that cover a smaller number of procedures. All such choices would be banned under the current health care law.
Americans want to be empowered as health care consumers. Eighty-two percent believe that if an employer pays for health insurance, the worker should be able to use that money and select an insurance product that meets his or her individual needs. If the plan they select costs less than the company plan, most believe the worker should get to keep the change.
It's not just the idea of making the choice that drives these numbers, it's the belief held by most Americans that competition will do more than government regulation to reduce the cost of health care. For something as fundamental as medical care, government policy must be consistent with deeply held American values. That's why an approach that increases consumer choice has solid support and a plan that relies on mandates and trusting the government cannot survive.

JP Morgan: Obamanomics Has Vaporized 15 Million Jobs

JP Morgan: Obamanomics Has Vaporized 15 Million Jobs
A much-needed reminder that despite the recent upturn in the jobs market, there is still an awfully big employment hole to fill, as JPMorgan economist James Glassman points out:


A useful way to assess the challenge for the US economy is to ask, How many jobs would need to be created to recover the ground lost in this last recession. Focusing only on official unemployment, currently 12,806,000 million are classified as officially unemployed. In a normal, fully-employed economy, the unemployment rate would be expected to be 4.5 to 5.0 percent. In that case, the natural number of unemployed people would be 7 to 8 million, respectively. So, for the unemployment rate to fall from 8.3 percent to 4.5 to 5.0 percent, the economy would need employ 6 million to 5 million people, respectively, of those who currently are unemployed.

What about the larger picture that includes the hidden unemployed? How many jobs are needed to restore the ratio of employed people to the total population back to where it was in 2007, prior to the economic downturn. Under normal circumstances, there would be 153,000,000 jobs, including parttime jobs that people hold voluntarily. Currently, however, the number of full-time jobs and those who are holding part-time jobs voluntarily stand at 138,189,000.

In other words, to restore the job market to the state it was in back in 2007, before the recession, would require the creation of 14.8 million jobs in today’s terms, a daunting task to say the least.

I'm trying to determine whether the apropos "Food Stamp President" or the simple yet elegant "SCOAMF" is the better tagline.

I'm leaning towards the latter.

MARXIST OBAMA: GOVERNMENT SPENDING MADE AMERICA GREAT | THE FREEDOM POST

MARXIST OBAMA: GOVERNMENT SPENDING MADE AMERICA GREAT | THE FREEDOM POST: In the Marxist lexicon, government "investment" has replaced the not-so-good sounding, government "spending". "Investment" communicates that there will be an excess return, or profit (which ironically Obama hates when it's in the private sector), while "spending" indicates that money has been spent and it's gone, a much more accurate term when describing government's actions. Whenever you hear a politician say "investment", grab your wallet, because there is about to be money taken by force from someone who earned it, and given to someone who didn't earn it. Obama and his Marxist ilk use his "investments" to buy votes from his select special-interest target groups, not to promote the "general welfare".

The Founding Fathers sternly warned about this type of politician:

According to the worst President in American history, “you’re on your own” economics, which apparently extended from the founding of the country until the day Barack Obama took office, didn’t work. Sure, it produced the most technologically advanced nation on the planet, the world’s largest economy, and made us into a super power, but that’s “madness” compared to Obamanomics, which cost us our AAA credit rating, has produced the longest streak of above 8% unemployment since the Great Depression, and is on track to produce 13 trillion dollars of debt over the next 10 years.
