A response to trust fund liberals who don’t understand minimum wage | The Right Sphere

A response to trust fund liberals who don’t understand minimum wage | The Right Sphere: So get this. McDonald’s had the nerve to try to help their minimum wage employees come up with a budget. Don’t worry though, because The Atlantic’s Jordan Weissmann let them have it. You can read his post here. It reads like it’s from a trust fund kid who has never had to pay a bill in his life.

Georgia requests emergency delay on health exchange | savannahnow.com

Georgia requests emergency delay on health exchange | savannahnow.com: ATLANTA — Georgia may not start its Obamacare health exchange Oct. 1 when the rest of the country does because the state issued an emergency request late Monday for a delay. Georgia Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens asked U.S. Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius for another 30 days beyond tomorrow’s deadline to approve the health plans submitted by seven insurance companies wanting to do business in the state. He said some rates were 198 percent higher than current plans available in the state. “Georgia consumers cannot afford these massive rate increases,” Hudgens wrote in his letter to her.

Top Republican challenges Boehner over Benghazi probe

The report said CIA employees were afraid for themselves and their families, and subjected to “pure intimidation,” including a highly unusual number of lie-detector tests.
And now Fox is confirming an explosive allegation Wolf made to WND back in June, that Benghazi survivors are being forced to sign non-disclosure agreements.

WORDS ARE FOR NERDS: "Folks, it’s time to evolve. That’s why we’re troubled. You know why our institutions are failing us, the church, the state, everything’s failing? It’s because, um – they’re no longer relevant. We’re supposed to keep evolving. Evolution did not end with us growing opposable thumbs. You do know that, right? There’s another 90 percent of our brains that we have to illuminate."

Morton's fork - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Morton's fork - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: A Morton's Fork is a specious piece of reasoning in which contradictory arguments lead to the same (unpleasant) conclusion. It is said to originate with the collecting of taxes by John Morton, Archbishop of Canterbury in the late 15th century, who held that a man living modestly must be saving money and could therefore afford taxes, whereas if he was living extravagantly then he was obviously rich and could still afford them.

Wait, it's their bill. If it's too expensive, why did they name it the Affordable Care Act? You see? Why don't they call it what it really is - the "Do As We Say, Not As We Do Act?" That is what the name of, that's the name of the bill. Exactly, exactly.

Mindful, Boundless, Impermanence...oh my. | The Interdependence Project

Mindful, Boundless, Impermanence...oh my. | The Interdependence Project: Pema Chodron claims that opening to pain in the groundless gains of habit, exit controls or compulsions is a counter-intuitive approach that isn’t touching the extent of the pain that we’re feeling. Our thoughts and desires are in this constant flux, switching our perception through obstacles of work, apathy or agitation. If we live with a sense of permanence in a world that is constantly changing we begin to suffer in having ideal assumptions through a nature of impermanent means. I personally believe that we’re expanding a sense of universality toward the vulnerabilities of getting what you want vs. not. while relating to others with a sense of contemplation — approached in compassion, competition, confidence, or, dare I say it... doubting.

Utilitarians Aren't Psychopaths—Are They? | Psychology Today

Utilitarians Aren't Psychopaths—Are They? | Psychology Today: As The Economist recently wrote, a forthcoming paper in Cognition reports that experiment participants "who indicated greater endorsement of utilitarian solutions had higher scores on measures of Psychopathy, machiavellianism, and life meaninglessness" (from the paper abstract). The experimenters presented subjects with variants of trolley dilemmas—either watch five passengers in a runaway trolley car die, or push one bystander onto the tracks to his death to stop the car—and also asked questions to track their psychological dispositions, finding a strong link between the antisocial tendencies and willingness to kill the bystander to save the trolley passengers.

Propinquity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Propinquity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: In social psychology, propinquity (from Latin propinquitas, "nearness") is one of the main factors leading to interpersonal attraction. It refers to the physical or psychological proximity between people. Propinquity can mean physical proximity, a kinship between people, or a similarity in nature between things ("like-attracts-like"). Two people living on the same floor of a building, for example, have a higher propinquity than those living on different floors, just as two people with similar political beliefs possess a higher propinquity than those whose beliefs strongly differ. Propinquity is also one of the factors, set out by Jeremy Bentham, used to measure the amount of (utilitarian) pleasure in a method known as felicific calculus.

The Three Basic Facts of Existence: I. Impermanence (Anicca)

The Three Basic Facts of Existence: I. Impermanence (Anicca): The Buddha speaks of three kinds of illusion or perversions (vipallaasa, Skt. viparyaasa) that grip man's mind, namely: the illusions of perception, thought, and view (sa~n~naa vipallaasa; citta vipallaasa; di.t.thi vipallaasa).[2] Now when a man is caught up in these illusions he perceives, thinks, and views incorrectly.

He perceives permanence in the impermanent; satisfactoriness in the unsatisfactory (ease and happiness in suffering); self in what is not self (a soul in the soulless); beauty in the repulsive.

He thinks and views in the same erroneous manner. Thus each illusion works in four ways (AN 4.49), and leads man astray, clouds his vision, and confuses him. This is due to unwise reflections, to unsystematic attention (ayoniso manasikaara). Right understanding (or insight meditation — vipassanaa) alone removes these illusions and helps man to cognize the real nature that underlies all appearance. It is only when man comes out of this cloud of illusions and perversions that he shines with true wisdom like the full moon that emerges brilliant from behind a black cloud.

Political Islam’s Disinformation

Political Islam’s Disinformation: How could the Muslim Brotherhood and other proponents of political Islam (including the violent kind) fool so many in the West for such a long time? Why did the West accept their demagoguery about “Islamic democracy” or “the rule of law” instead of recognizing that the former is an oxymoron and the later is Shari’a law?

David Stockman on Wall Street, The Federal Reserve, and The Great Deformation - Reason.com

David Stockman on Wall Street, The Federal Reserve, and The Great Deformation - Reason.com: In The Great Deformation, Stockman describes how Wall Street and the speculative classes have joined forces with the Federal Reserve to take the economy hostage by punishing savers, vastly inflating Main Street's living costs, and fueling new financial bubbles.

At the same time, he argues, control of the federal budget has been surrendered to special interests that cling to every loophole in the tax code and block attempts at significant spending cuts. Stockman explains how this state of affairs arose over the course of the last eighty years, why this warped crony capitalism has betrayed so many of our hopes and dreams, and how we might be able to avert a looming economic crisis.

Reagan Created More Jobs in Single Month Than Obama Has All Year

Reagan Created More Jobs in Single Month Than Obama Has All Year: Despite the media's spin, the results have been disastrous for the American people. Thus far, all year, the Obama Recovery has created fewer jobs than Raegan's recovery created in that single month.

Over 7 full months in 2013, only 953,000 jobs have been created.(77% of those part-time)

What the media won't tell you as they say things like, "Well, we are growing, just not fast enough," is that it did not have to be like this.

Reagan Created More Jobs in Single Month Than Obama Has All Year

Reagan Created More Jobs in Single Month Than Obama Has All Year: In one month, September of 1983, the Reagan Recovery created 1,114 MILLION jobs.

This was no fluke, either. The next 15 months saw amazing job growth (in thousands): 271, 352, 356, 447, 479, 275, 363, 308, 379, 312, 241, 311, 286, 349, 127.

By contrast, President Obama attacked his inherited recession in the exact opposite way Reagan did. Obama passed onerous regulations, including Dodd-Frank and ObamaCare. Worse, his class warfare rhetoric demanding higher taxes and even more regulation, has never ceased. The uncertainty he creates in the labor market in unprecedented.

Reagan Created More Jobs in Single Month Than Obama Has All Year

Reagan Created More Jobs in Single Month Than Obama Has All Year: In 1983, as President Ronald Reagan's economic policies took hold, the American recovery started to roar back to life. This was thanks to Reagan's across-the-board tax cuts and an overall philosophy of getting government out of the way of American ingenuity. The result was that the entire dynamic of an economy that had been in a malaise for nearly a decade completely turned around.

A corrosão das contas públicas - opiniao - versaoimpressa - Estadão

A corrosão das contas públicas - opiniao - versaoimpressa - Estadão: Corroídas pela gastança federal, pelos erros do governo e pela consequente estagnação da economia, as contas públicas nacionais continuam mal e sem perspectiva de grande melhora nos próximos meses. O resultado primário do primeiro semestre - R$ 52,16 bilhões ou 2,25% do PIB - foi o pior para o período de janeiro a junho desde 2010. Nos primeiros seis meses do ano passado havia correspondido a 3,08% do PIB. O acumulado em 12 meses, de R$ 91,5 bilhões, correspondeu a 2% do PIB. A meta revista para este ano é de 2,3%. A presidente Dilma Rousseff e o ministro da Fazenda, Guido Mantega, desistiram há meses da meta fixada originalmente na Lei de Diretrizes Orçamentárias (LDO), de 3,1%. Se esse objetivo for alcançado, será com auxílio de receitas extraordinárias, como dividendos antecipados de empresas estatais e o bônus previsto para a licitação, em outubro, de uma grande área do pré-sal.

A Record 21.6 Million Millennials Living With Parents

A Record 21.6 Million Millennials Living With Parents: However, this large number of millennials at home is mostly made up of those under age 25, with people approaching 30 being far less likely to live with their parents. Fifty-six percent of adults ages 18 to 24 are living at home, compared to 16 percent of 25- to 31-year-olds.

Pew offered three reasons why so many young people are home, some good and some bad:

Declining Employment: In 2012, 63% of 18- to 31-year-olds had jobs, down from the 70% of their same-aged counterparts who had jobs in 2007. In 2012, unemployed Millennials were much more likely than employed Millennials to be living with their parents (45% versus 29%).

Rising College Enrollment: In March 2012, 39% of 18- to 24-year-olds were enrolled in college, up from 35% in March 2007. Among 18- to 24-year-olds, those enrolled in college were much more likely than those not in college to be living at home – 66% versus 50%.

Declining Marriage: In 2012 just 25% of Millennials were married, down from the 30% of 18- to 31-year-olds who were married in 2007. Today’s unmarried Millennials are much more likely than married Millennials to be living with their parents (47% versus 3%).

More Than 1 in 3 Young Adults Still Live With Their Parents - Real Time Economics - WSJ

The Great Recession ended in 2009. Isn’t it about time that 20-somethings start striking it on their own?
Despite the improving job market, 36% of young adults aged 18 to 31 — also known as Millennials — were living in their parents’ homes in 2012, up from 34% in 2009, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data. In fact, Pew finds that it’s the highest share in at least four decades.


Yale officially declares ‘Nonconsensual Sex’ not that big of a deal | Young Cons

Yale officially declares ‘Nonconsensual Sex’ not that big of a deal | Young Cons: The word “rape” does not factor into Yale’s new report on how the university is handling sexual misconduct; instead, the act is described as “nonconsensual sex,” and it’s usually punishable by “written reprimand.” (Sometimes rapists have to spend some time thinking about respect!) According to the report, five of the six people Yale identified as nonconsensual sex-havers over the past six months either graduated without much stress or will be returning to campus in the fall.

Boehner to President Obama: Stop Mocking Policies that Will Create Jobs, Start Leading on Addressing Spending Crisis | Speaker.gov

Boehner to President Obama: Stop Mocking Policies that Will Create Jobs, Start Leading on Addressing Spending Crisis | Speaker.gov



Boehner’s remarks:
 “This week we learned that our economy continues to muddle along at an unacceptable pace.  This is yet another reminder that, under President Obama’s leadership, our country has fallen into a ‘new normal’: slow growth, high unemployment, and stagnant wages.
“It’s bad enough that he continues to block the Keystone pipeline, which his own administration says would mean tens of thousands of new jobs.  This week, he actually mocked the project and the jobs that it would create.  I don’t know how he can look Americans in the eye who are struggling, and think there’s anything to joke about.
“President Obama’s economy is no laughing matter. That’s why House Republicans continue to work on our plan for economic growth and real jobs in our country. 
“Looking forward, Washington must confront some serious choices that we’re going to deal with this fall.  President Obama and his party in the House and Senate are in denial about Washington’s spending problem.  They haven’t come to terms with the fact that unless we deal with the spending problem honestly and forthrightly, our kids and grandkids are going to face a much dimmer future.
“We won’t have prosperity unless we address these massive deficits and debt that are hurting our economy and jeopardizing the American Dream.   
“Our members are ready to solve this problem.  We’ve shown leadership, we’ve passed a balanced budget.  The question is: Does the president have the courage to stand up to his own party, and work with us to truly solve this problem?  I hope so.”

Real Cover-Up of CIA Activity at “Phony” Benghazi Scandal - Hit & Run : Reason.com

Real Cover-Up of CIA Activity at “Phony” Benghazi Scandal - Hit & Run : Reason.com: The Obama Administration has been publicly pushing the idea that questions about the administration’s actions and truthfulness in regards to last year’s attack on the Benghazi consulate was a “phony scandal.”

In private, though, it appears the Administration is working very hard not to have any information contradicting their claims to truthfulness from coming out. CNN is now reporting that “dozens” of CIA employees were on the ground in Benghazi at the time of the attack.

Armed agents raid animal shelter for baby deer | News - WISN Home: It was to go to a wildlife reserve in Illinois that allows the rehabilitation of deer. Schulze said agents corralled workers near the picnic area and then set out in search of the fawn.

"I was thinking in my mind they were going to take the deer and take it to a wildlife shelter, and here they come carrying the baby deer over their shoulder. She was in a body bag," Schulze said. "I said, 'Why did you do that?' He said, 'That's our policy,' and I said, 'That's one hell of a policy.'"

Not Much Hope for a Better Jobs Market

Not Much Hope for a Better Jobs Market: The pace of job creation has been stronger in recent months; however, a noticeable shift toward replacing full-time workers with part-time employees masks a much tougher market for job-seekers. Since January, 833,000 more Americans reported working part-time, while 97,000 fewer have full time positions.

This is not surprising—a good deal of the new jobs are in the hospitality, retailing, and other sectors where businesses may chop up full-time positions to avoid rising heath insurance costs for full-time employees mandated by ObamaCare.

More part-time workers pushes down wages for ordinary workers and is one particularly poignant illustration of a public policy initiative intended to reduce income inequality that actually exacerbates it.

Under more normal circumstances, about 360,000 additional jobs would be needed each month to pull down headline unemployment to 6 percent, but to attain a truly healthy labor market many more full time jobs are needed.

Adding in discouraged adults and part-timers who want full-time positions, the unemployment rate becomes 14.3 percent.

How to Use Obamacare to Scam Taxpayers | The Conservative Papers

How to Use Obamacare to Scam Taxpayers | The Conservative Papers: But when you apply for coverage in the Obamacare insurance exchange, it’s up to you to report your income accurately. It turns out that the IRS won’t be checking everyone’s Obamacare applications.

Heritage health care expert Chris Jacobs ran the numbers to show what a difference a little fraud can make. He took a hypothetical family of four with $90,000 in income who were eligible for coverage through the exchange. If this family were honest, they would receive a subsidy of $2,997 to help cover their insurance premiums.

But if that same family put down $35,000 as their income instead, they would receive $10,175 from taxpayers. Even if they were caught, they would have to pay back only $2,500 of their ill-gotten subsidy, due to a loophole in Obamacare.

It Just So Happens… | Red Nation Rising

It Just So Happens… | Red Nation Rising

July 31, 2013 by jlysaght
Obama just happened to know 60s far-left radical revolutionary William Ayers, whose father just happened to be Thomas Ayers, who just happened to be a close friend of Obama’s communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis, who just happened to work at the communist-sympathizing Chicago Defender with Vernon Jarrett, who just happened to later become the father-in-law of Iranian-born leftist Valerie Jarrett, who Obama just happened to choose as his closest White House advisor, and who just happened to have been CEO of Habitat Company, which just happened to manage public housing in Chicago, which just happened to get millions of dollars from the Illinois state legislature, and which just happened not to properly maintain the housing—which eventually just happened to require demolition.
Chicago
Valerie Jarrett also just happened to work for the city of Chicago and just happened to hire Michelle LaVaughan Robinson (later Mrs.Obama), who just happened to have worked at the Sidley Austin law firm, where former fugitive from the FBI Bernardine Dohrn also just happened to work, and where Barack Obama just happened to get a summer job.
Kenya
Bernardine Dohrn just happened to be married to William Ayers, with whom she just happened to have hidden from the FBI at a San Francisco marina, along with Donald Warden, who just happened to change his name to Khalid al-Mansour, and Warden/al-Mansour just happened to be a mentor of Black Panther Party founders Huey Newton and Bobby Seale and a close associate of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, and al-Mansour just happened to be financial adviser to a Saudi Prince, who just happened to donate cash to Harvard, for which Obama just happened to get a critical letter of recommendation from Percy Sutton, who just happened to have been the attorney for Malcolm X, who just happened to know Kenyan politician Tom Mboya, who just happened to be a close friend of Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., who just happened to meet Malcolm X when he traveled to Kenya.
Nation of Islam
Obama, Sr. just happened to have his education at the University of Hawaii paid for by the Laubach Literacy Institute, which just happened to have been supported by Elizabeth Mooney Kirk, who just happened to be a friend of Malcolm X, who just happened to have been associated with the Nation of Islam, which was later headed by Louis Farrakhan, who just happens to live very close to Obama’s Chicago mansion, which also just happens to be located very close to the residence of William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who just happen to have been occasional baby-sitters for Malia and Natasha Obama, whose parents just happened to have no concern exposing their daughters to bomb-making communists.
Alinsky
After attending Occidental College and Columbia University, where he just happened to have foreign Muslim roommates, Obama moved to Chicago to work for the Industrial Areas Foundation, an organization that just happened to have been founded by Marxist and radical agitator Saul Alinsky, author of Rules for Radicals, who just happened to be the topic of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s thesis at Wellesley College, and Obama’s $25,000 salary at IAF just happened to be funded by a grant from the Woods Fund, which was founded by the Woods family, whose Sahara Coal company just happened to provide coal to Commonwealth Edison, whose CEO just happened to be Thomas Ayers, whose son William Ayers just happened to serve on the board of the Woods Fund, along with Obama.
Democratic Socialists of America
Obama also worked on voter registration drives in Chicago in the 1980s and just happened to work with leftist political groups like the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and Socialist International (SI), through which Obama met Carl Davidson, who just happened to travel to Cuba during the Vietnam War to sabotage the U.S. war effort, and who just happened to be a former member of the SDS and a member of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, which just happened to sponsor a 2002 anti-war rally at which Obama spoke, and which just happened to have been organized by Marilyn Katz, a former SDS activist and later public relations consultant who just happened to be a long-time friend of Obama’s political hatchet man, David Axelrod.
Anti-white, Anti-Jew, and Anti-American
Obama joined Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC), whose pastor was Reverend Jeremiah Wright, a fiery orator who just happened to preach Marxism and Black Liberation Theology and who delivered anti-white, anti-Jew, and anti-American sermons, which Obama just happened never to hear because he just happened to miss church only on the days when Wright was at his “most enthusiastic,” and Obama just happened never to notice that Oprah Winfrey left the church because it was too radical and just happened never to notice that the church gave the vile anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan a lifetime achievement award.
Dreams From 1960s Far-left Radicals

Although no one had ever heard of him at the time, Obama just happened to receive an impossible-to-believe $125,000 advance to write a book about race relations, which he just happened to fail to write while using the cash to vacation in Bali with his wife Michelle, and despite his record of non-writing he just happened to receive a second advance, for $40,000, from another publisher, and he eventually completed a manuscript called Dreams From My Father, which just happened to strongly reflect the writing style of William Ayers, who just happened to trample on an American flag for the cover photograph of the popular Chicago magazine, which Obama just happened never to see even though it appeared on newsstands throughout the city.
Slumlord Valerie Jarrett
Obama was hired by the law firm Miner, Banhill and Galland, which just happened to specialize in negotiating state government contracts to develop low-income housing, and which just happened to deal with now-imprisoned Tony Rezko and his firm Rezar, and with slumlord Valerie Jarrett, and the law firm’s Judson Miner just happened to have been a classmate of Bernardine Dohrn, wife of William Ayers.
ACORN
In 1994 Obama represented ACORN and another plaintiff in a lawsuit against Citibank for denying mortgages to blacks (Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Federal Savings Bank), and the lawsuit just happened to result in banks being blackmailed into approving subprime loans for poor credit risks, a trend which just happened to spread nationwide, and which just happened to lead to the collapse of the housing bubble, which just happened to help Obama defeat John McCain in the 2008 presidential election.
Marxists
In 1996 Obama ran for the Illinois State Senate and joined the “New Party,” which just happened to promote Marxism and Obama was supported by Dr. Quentin Young, a socialist who just happened to support a government takeover of the health care system.
Larry Sinclair
In late 1999 Obama purportedly engaged in homosexual activities and cocaine-snorting in the back of a limousine with a man named Larry Sinclair, who claims he was contacted in late 2007 by Donald Young, who just happened to be the gay choir director of Obama’s Chicago church and who shared information with Sinclair about Obama and Young just happened to be murdered on December 23, 2007, just weeks after Larry Bland, another gay member of the church, just happened to be murdered and both murders just happened to have never been solved. In 2008 Sinclair held a press conference to discuss his claims, and just happened to be arrested immediately after the event, based on a warrant issued by Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, who just happens to be the son of Joe Biden.
Stomping on Old Glory
In 2003 Obama and his wife attended a dinner in honor of Rashid Khalidi, who just happened to be a former PLO operative, harsh critic of Israel and advocate of Palestinian rights and who Obama claims he does not know, even though the Obamas just happened to have dined more than once at the home of Khalidi and his wife, Mona, and just happened to have used them as occasional baby-sitters. Obama reportedly praised Khalidi at the decidedly anti-Semitic event, which William Ayers just happened to also attend, and the event Obama pretends he never attended was sponsored by the Arab American Action Network, to which Obama just happened to have funneled cash while serving on the board of the Woods Fund with William Ayers, and one speaker at the dinner remarked that if Palestinians cannot secure a return of their land, Israel “will never see a day of peace,” and entertainment at the dinner included a Muslim children’s dance whose performances just happened to include simulated beheadings with fake swords, and stomping on American, Israeli, and British flags, and Obama allegedly told the audience that “Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine” and there has been “genocide against the Palestinian people by (the) Israelis,” and the Los Angeles Times has a videotape of the event but just happens to refuse to make it public.
Blue Dems
In the 2004 Illinois Democrat primary race for the U.S. Senate, front-runner Blair Hull just happened to be forced out of the race after David Axelrod just happened to manage to get Hull’s sealed divorce records unsealed, which just happened to enable Obama to win the primary, so he could face popular Republican Jack Ryan, whose sealed child custody records from his divorce just happened to become unsealed, forcing Ryan to withdraw from the race, which just happened to enable the unqualified Obama to waltz into the U.S. Senate, where, after a mere 143 days of work, he just happened to decide he was qualified to run for President of the United States.
Nothing to see here folks. Move on!
After all, Obama just happens to love America and be a champion for the middle class, right?
Of course not!  It’s why we rise.  Why we fight.
We are a #RedNationRising of Centrists, Conservatives, Libertarians and Patriots against the Blue Dem Commie Socialist Swine.  It’s now or never, friends.
Rise!

VENITISM: The economy undergoes faster creative destruction

VENITISM: The economy undergoes faster creative destruction

 You can certainly make a strong case that the US needs to invest more in infrastructure. But how could President Obama give a major speech on the US economy without a single reference to “enterpreneurs” or “startups?” They’re an important source of both new jobs and innovation. Is Obama not aware of any of the worrisome stats that Ed Luce mentions in the FT today? Luce:

The rate of small business creation in the US is in long-term decline. Last year, just 513,000 businesses were created, down from 543,000 in 2011. Overall, businesses under five years old account for just 8 per cent of US businesses, against 13 per cent in the 1980s, according to the Kauffman Foundation.
And there are even more troubling numbers. Luce wants to cut taxes to give startups a boost:
The effective tax rate for big US businesses is 12.6 per cent but nearer 35 per cent for small businesses. Mr Obama should campaign to lower the headline rate, raise the effective one and put accountants and lawyers out of a job. He could call it the Entrepreneurs Dream Act. Since it would go to the heart of what it is to be American, the debate would put the Republicans on the defensive.
And Kauffman offers a few addition ideas worth perusing :
– Providing new firms with better access to early-stage financing, creating capital gains tax exemptions for long-held startup investments, providing tax incentives for startup operating capital, facilitating access to public markets, and allowing shareholders of companies with market cap below $1 billion to opt-in under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
– Accelerating the formation and commercialization of new ideas by creating differential patent fees to reduce the patent backlog and providing licensing freedom for academic innovators.
– Removing barriers to the formation and growth of businesses through the introduction of automatic ten-year sunsets for all major rules, establishing common-sense and cost-effective standards for regulations, and making assessments of state and local startup and business policies.
Does Obama not think a pro-entrepreneur agenda is a good fit with his inequality agenda? Race Against the Machine authors Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee see things quite differently, arguing that “entrepreneurs need to keep inventing new ways to combine technology and people to create new industries and innovations. There’s never been a better time to be a talented entrepreneur and they will be needed even more in coming years as the economy undergoes faster creative destruction.”

welcome to vixieFrenzy.com: a cup of soul…: In essence, Congress better watch itself because if it puts illegals before the already written rules of law, and before the pressing issues of our citizens who played by the rules, and did not BREAK THE LAW to get here, they will undermine all of our futures and make us a social welfare state. Just look at Spain or Greece or England. It is not like this course of action works for anyone.

UK: Lunch lady fired for inadvertently serving pork to Muslim student - Jihad Watch: Even Muslim leaders are not jumping aboard for this one, but it shows how far Britain has fallen, and how terrified it is of its Muslim population, to which it is utterly subservient. Those who speak out against the Islamization of Britain are smeared, vilified, marginalized -- or banned from the country altogether.

Corrosion Of Conformity - Clean My Wounds Lyrics | SongMeanings:

"Help me Jesus, Help me clean my wounds"
He said he cannot heal that kind.
Bleeding soul becomes a bitter mind.
He said it happens every time
lock and load,
lock and load,
That's how the story goes
In the Land of 1000 No's.
I'm all over you
In time my mind is changing.
lock and load.

House Votes this Week to Stop Red Tape that Will Make Sky High Gas Prices Even Worse | Speaker.gov

House Votes this Week to Stop Red Tape that Will Make Sky High Gas Prices Even Worse | Speaker.gov: As gas prices continue to “soar nationwide” on President Obama’s watch, House Republicans will vote this week on legislation aimed at stopping new Obama administration rules that could make the pain at the pump even worse. The Energy Consumers Relief Act (H.R. 1582), sponsored by Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), would force the administration to account for the economic impact of major new regulations, and prevent any rules that will have a harmful impact on jobs and the economy – like the proposed Tier 3 gas rule - from being finalized.

zen mind, beginner's mind

zen mind, beginner's mind: But perfect freedom is not found without some rules. People, especially young people, think that freedom is to do just what they want, that in Zen there is no need for rules. But it is absolutely necessary for us to have some rules. But this does not mean always to be under control. As long as you have rules, you have a chance for freedom. To try to obtain freedom without being aware of the rules means nothing. It is to acquire this perfect freedom that we practice zazen.

Mainstream economists notoriously cannot agree nor predict; their construct, 'the economy' remains terra incognita until after some economic event. That results from the nature of their construct: the economy is no gestalt; it is aggregated people. So too, is government.
