Good Morning Morons;

 

Good story on sidebar item:

 

More and more, Americans are going Galt.
Anther tidbit in this report - Magic Accounting allowed the Federal Deficit to be reported as 1.4 terabucks instead of the more accurate 1.9 terabucks.[ArthurK]

 

Obama accounting measures would get everyone thrown in jail if they had to live with the accounting rules of sarbanes-oxley like everyone else.

 

Their accounting methods are pure fraud.

Zelaya reinstated as President in Honduras ... un-fucking-believable.

 Not yet, but set up to do so. I note also that the assholes in the AP are still calling this a coup. Most likely if he is returned to power they will bow down and lick The Won’s balls while calling it a victory for The Won and a victory for freedom and democracy to restore this communist thug to power.

this "death panel" language is making me mad.  in the original HR 3200, the language was dangerously ambigious.  It should be removed or written in a definitive way.

 

Wasn't this mentioned at the townhalls?  Does anyone remember the townhalls?

The members of Congress do.not.give.a.sh*t. what we think.

But....but...but Barry saved the economy. He single handedly ended the recession

Oct. 30 (Bloomberg) -- Spending by U.S. consumers fell in September for the first time in five months after the government’s auto-rebate program expired.

The 0.5 percent decrease in purchases matched the median estimate of economists surveyed by Bloomberg News and followed a 1.4 percent jump in the prior month, Commerce Department figures showed today in Washington. Incomes were unchanged, while the savings rate climbed.

Stagnant wages and concern over mounting unemployment are causing confidence to wane, raising the risk that consumers will retrench in coming months as government assistance programs run out.

Wages and salaries dropped 0.2 percent after a 0.2 percent gain the prior month as job losses mounted.

The election is in a month. This could be a way for the current government to smooth things over until then. And could actually be a shrewd move on their part to get everyone to shut the fuck up and let them hold their election in peace.

Oct. 30 (Bloomberg) -- The House ethics committee announced it is investigating two California Democrats, Representatives Maxine Waters and Laura Richardson.

The cases were forwarded to the House panel by the Office of Congressional Ethics, which Congress established in 2008 as part of a series of measures that also included a 2007 law that imposed new reporting rules and restrictions on lobbyists.

What is this world coming to when the press mentions that Democrats are under investigation?

Looks like Honduras conned Clinton into backing down on the Pres thing.  He gets to stay in office for 3 more months and then Adios MF, new election in Nov will be recognized by US and Z will be history.  They are still threatening to arrest him when he leaves Brazilian Embassy. Guess you can be president in jail!

NY Times still calling his removal a "military coup".

19 OK, can someone explain to me why CNN had a breaking news alert re $150 billion saving or creating 650,000 jobs?  Like, first, that's a tiny number (what, 1.5 weeks of lost jobs recently.  Second, isn't that like $230,000+ per job?  Third, it's still shocking to try to create 150 billion (all those zeros on a calculator).

$230,000 per job?  And for jobs that last how long?  FREAKIN MADNESS!

Lawmakers targeted in ethics probe - John Bresnahan - POLITICO.com

In a statement, Lofgren and Bonner said the document given to the Post was on the personal computer of a former panel aide, who placed it on a file-sharing system, when it was “exposed to unauthorized and inappropriate access by persons outside the Committee.”

"Not to worry" is never appropriate verbiage when it comes to Democrats. Always worry.

A good defence of the futility of firearms' registration to stop crime from a Canadian perspective in Toronto. (The federal Conservatives are trying to abolish the Liberals' gun registry that went from registering handguns to registering rural long-arms to, you know, stop illegal handgun crime in places like Toronto and Vancouver. BTW, the Liberals said it would only cost $2-million and it's cost more than $1-billion probably to reach $2-billion when the registry is complete.)

Granholm's interesting new take on the role of a Land Grant college:

http://tinyurl.com/yffn4se

Michigan's ag extension institute has been veto-repurposed to biomass and urban farming, plus whatever New Age greenism du jour is on the menu.

Our Grand Rapids faction was just discussing, the other day, how Detroit and Flint suck the state dry, so to speak. And there's a running commentary on hunting and gathering in the former Detroit. It's official: they're not "gardens" anymore; Detroit is farmland. Wolverines! No, really--wolverines.

To be absolutely fair, north of 45 wouldn't be a vast game and cabin-cruiser refuge today (rifles allowed!) if wannabe farmers 100 years ago had not been tragically misinformed on some farm science issues, like whether you could stay alive, for instance. The State said come on in, Nature said otherwise. Hard times. Cheap desperate labor. Profit!

Stick-in-the-mud 19th cent. types will protest that they thought they understood what the grantors of federal A & M tracts (a/k/a State Universities) had in mind, but you know, that was then and this ain't.

The Long March through the Institutions has a petite carbon footprint.

Who said never tell a small lie?

White House officials, under pressure from the economy's continuing job losses, plan to announce Friday that President Barack Obama's $787 billion stimulus plan "has created and saved at least 1 million jobs" since he signed it in February.

“We anticipate that these reports will credit the Recovery Act with directly creating or saving about 650,000 jobs,” a senior administration official e-mailed POLITICO Friday morning. “Because these reports show that less than half of the spending through that date created or saved about 650,000 jobs, they confirm government and private forecaster’s estimates that overall Recovery Act spending has created and saved at least 1 million jobs.”

<in Dr Evil's voice> One MILLION new jobs!

Gosh, about that Zelaya agreement, it looks like Madame Secretary strongarmed her way to victory.  This accomplishment can only be a resume enhancer. 

The ousted president said the agreement followed a "very strong initiative" by Clinton, without giving further details.

Hillary really is too weak and stupid to oppose Obama on anything and lacks the strength of character and conviction to leave his administration.  She's going to go down with the rest of the ship.  We might never live to see the day that what's currently happening is rightly judged, but I can only hope the true legacy Obama is leaving on America is eventually exposed for the evil destruction and havoc it really is.  Just like I hope someday, Bush is fully and publicly vindicated for his stance in the War on Terror.

Power? what power? The Supreme Court will be temporarily in charge of the military. The legislature is hostile to the man. He'll be a mast head until the next President is sworn in. Yeah, it'll suck that he'll be in a nice house and sit the President's desk for two months. But he should have been arrested when he was removed from office, not exiled.

35 Silly String will now get you arrested.
I am absolutely sick to death of the constant march of rules, rules, rules to control every aspect of human behavior. I say,"rules" because much of the time it is done by business or school or some other authority than government.
Many of you have kids. How much have you noticed the school dictating to you what you must provide and how your children may participate in even the most superfluous events?
LA- Bans bacon dogs and silly string. And we laugh at it. This is encroachment on your freedoms. And you are getting more and more accustomed to it.

37 Following up some thoughts from yesterday's gang-rape thread (vis a vis the attitudes toward female rape victims), this is a chilling account from a woman who was a victim of Garrido (the sicko recently caught after holding a young girl - now woman - captive for 18 years) 30 or so years ago: 

Hall was held in the small storage facility for five hours before she heard a noise.

"My recollections begin around 3 a.m. Someone banged on the door. I remember thinking, 'Oh my God, his friends are coming,' " she said. "Garrido said, 'Do I have to tie you up or are you going to be good.' "

She told him she would be good, but she knew if it was the police banging outside, she was going to "have to try something."

"I barreled my way out of the warehouse completely naked. I could see the officer and Garrido standing there. They both looked at me like I was crazy," she said. "I couldn't see the officer's car. I thought 'Oh God, he's not a real cop.' My state of mind was such that I couldn't fully embrace what I was seeing. Finally, I saw his police car."

Garrido tried to tell the cop Hall was his girlfriend.

"I screamed, 'No I'm not -- help me, help me,' " she said.

"The officer told me to go back in and put my clothes on. When I went inside, Garrido must have convinced the officer we were both on drugs, because he let Garrido go back into the building alone," Hall said. "I had already put some of my clothes on. Garrido came back in and begged me not to turn him in."

Half-dressed, Hall said she maneuvered past him and asked the police to keep him away.

"They asked if I was brought there against my will," she said. "I told them I was, that he had handcuffed and bound me. An officer shined a light on my wrists, saw the sores from the handcuffs, and arrested Garrido."
