What happens to merchandise when “customers” no longer have to pay?
Louisiana officials are trying to decide what to do about a massive shopping spree by families on food stamps when a power outage lifted the caps on their spending cards. Springhill Police Chief Will Lynd said some customers were pushing more food than any household could store in a refrigerator and freezer.
“I saw people drag out eight to ten grocery carts,” he said.
I know what I would do. Not advance any more EBT funds until their balances became positive. This would be the last time this happened.
I’d like to call it “looting”, but it isn’t really. Looting usually means the store isn’t paid for merchandise. This time the EBT program got looted.
What can we conclude?
1) The “poor” are not respectful or appreciative of us, their benefactors.
2) The “poor” have phones, internet connections, computers, and communicate.
3) There is no morality in Welfare programs, or the “poor.”
4) The Collapse will be worse.
5) Don’t shop at Walmart if you don’t want to be around these people, or Walmart.
Concerning 5). Walmart is near work. I tried to buy M sized V neck undershirts and only found one package in the whole store. Yet the aisles were filled with 2XL, and 3XL sizes. That was my first encounter with 3XL. Pigs are disgusting.
Now government employees are getting a bonus:
An extra paid vacation.
The GOP House is scheduled Saturday to vote on legislation backed by the White House and congressional Democrats that would make sure the 800,000 sidelined government employees would get their pay when the shutdown ends.
I misunderstood that the whole point of the shutdown was to not spend money.
Politicians and their protected class are all about the public slop trough.
My first job out of college, the company fell on hard times, and we all took a temporary 10% pay cut. Nobody got the lost money back when salaries were restored.
This doesn’t happen in government. At least Congress could plan the shutdown duration so government employees could know when their return flight is. Granted some of them are still on the job with no pay, but not many.
The liberal media is heralding Obamacare as a “success.”
It must be, because switchboards are jammed.
Long lines are the result of offering any product below cost and taking heavy losses.
ACA “insurance” is heavily subsidized by taxpayers and is a form of welfare.
The article calls people signing up “customers.”
They are not customers and government is not a business.
Real customers pay full price, and real businesses don’t use tax money to cover losses.
As the nation’s debt ceiling looms, Obama is discreetly directing federal monies to Detroit.
The federal fingerprint in efforts to fix Detroit is growing larger as the Obama administration has found millions of dollars in grant money to help the bankrupt city.
Four high-ranking White House officials will discuss federal efforts and other opportunities Friday during a closed-door meeting at Wayne State University with Gov. Rick Snyder, state-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr, Mayor Dave Bing and community and business leaders.
Detroit has had a poor record in making sure grant money is used properly and even spent at all.
In 2011, Mayor Dave Bing fired the director of the city’s Human Services Department after an internal investigation revealed $200,000 intended for poor residents was spent on office furniture for staff members.
Doubling down on failure quietly.
Another reason to defund the federal government.
Who in the OMB gets to pick and choose what remains funded?
Services that are the role of government get shut down.
Activities that are not the role of a legitimate government keep running.
Wealth transfers such as Social Security and Medicare keep paying out.
Passport services shut down.
EPA employees prosecuting federal cases are funded.
Federal Courts soon shut down.
At least national parks and museums shut down.
The Smithsonian consumes about $1B annually. It’s time to privatize that and charge correct admission anyway. National Park admission should cover costs too.
Disneyland and Six Flags don’t run losses.
No word on public broadcasting.
This is what Ezra Klein has to say about Ted Cruz:
Cruz himself is firmly on the wrong side of public opinion:
That’s not all of course. Cruz opposes raising taxes on the wealthy. The public supports it. Cruz opposes gun control. The public supports it. Cruz supports sharply cutting spending on Medicare and Social Security. The public opposes it. If Cruz actually believed his job was directly representing the will of the people, his voting record would be extremely different than it is.
According to this reasoning, the “will of the people” can result in unconstitutional governmental action, as long as public opinion supports it. Ezra Klein isn’t quite smart enough to figure out this has happened before. To Jews like him.
The coliseum in Rome was built by Jewish slaves, and after completion, their reward was to be thrown into the arena for entertainment in the newly constructed building.
The Roman public supported that.
German government in the 1930s and 1940s confiscated Jewish property and murdered them.
The German public supported that.
Individual rights and constitutions that prohibit govermental overreach are conditional to the Left.
Ask them why.
What happens when politicians and environmental do gooders wrest control of a sector of the economy such as energy?
- Exploding costs
- Wasted resources
Germany today is all those. Centralized planning and politicians do not work.
Free markets and private ownership work.
Allowing businesses and governments to fail, cleanses and causes people to stop engaging in bad behavior.
A task force of elected officials on Friday recommended tearing down the elementary school where 20 first-graders and six educators were shot dead in December and rebuilding on the site.
The group of 28 Newtown elected officials voted unanimously in favor of a plan that would construct a new building on the property where the existing Sandy Hook Elementary School is located. The proposal now goes to the local school board and then before voters as a referendum.
A study found building a new school on the existing site would cost $57 million.
Let’s look at the Liberal logic in this:
Something very bad happened, so now they are going to double down?
What kind of lesson is this for kids, to solve problems by smashing stuff when life doesn’t go your way?
What’s wrong with new paint, a modest remodel, and a memorial monument off site?
Plenty. It would be cost effective.
This is what elected politicians do with other people’s money.
Jason Collins, 34, becomes the first active player in one of four major U.S. professional sports leagues to come out as gay.
Hours after Collins disclosed his sexuality in an online article, Obama reached out by phone, expressing his support and telling Collins he was impressed by his courage, the White House said.
And first lady Michelle Obama chimed in on Twitter on Monday afternoon to applaud Collins.
Former President Bill Clinton also voiced encouragement, releasing a statement that asks fans, NBA colleagues and the media to support and respect him. Clinton said Collins’ announcement Monday is an “important moment” for professional sports and the history of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
George Bush visits wounded veterans to express support for their courage.
Bush may not have been the best president, but his head was screwed on right.
It was bad enough that police shot up the boat where D* T* (that’s UNIX for “I don’t want to type out all those $*&% random characters”) was hiding, but now the FBI has taken the boat from the owner.
It just doesn’t pay to report potential criminals on your property. Better to tell them to go somewhere else, if you like your stuff. Does not the following apply?
5) No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
The title says it all. Politicians socialize risk by allocating tax monies the rest cannot refuse to pay, to their supporters. Just so they can retain power of political office. The use of political office for theft isn’t new. Roman emperors falsely charged patricians with crimes so they would be executed and their wealth seized to fund gladiatorial combat for the public or to build personal palaces.
In countries without corruption, private citizens and businesses buy insurance against natural disaster. If insurance rates are too high, rational thinking persuades people to not place wealth in harm’s way. Not only does socializing risk force the rest of us to pay blue states’ insurance claims, it causes moral hazard.
The hostfile is used to map human friendly hostnames to numeric IP addresses.
One easy way to block unwanted traffic out of your machine is to use “home” or the loopback
Your Windows XP hostname ascii file is located at
A blocking line will look like this:
When outbound traffic is directed to facebook.com, your machine hijacks it, redirecting it to your own machine at 127.0.0.1
You can download a hostfile from this site, that blocks a lot of unwanted snooping.
Microsoft Windows8 prevents you from blocking Facebook and other adware via the hostfile.
Even if you write protect your hostfile, Windows Defender will overwrite your wishes.
There are a few ways around this.
We’ve been so distracted by the election we missed this film, out for almost a month!
It’s still in theaters. I’m going tonight.
If there was any doubt in any fiscal conservative’s mind, it’s now squelched. Mitt Romney was a great candidate, and he ran a great campaign. Better than Ronald Reagan.
Mitt is ethical, principled, accomplished, an experienced leader in managing projects and budgets, a very hard worker, and had the US’ best interest at heart. I thank Mitt for serving his country with such a campaign. I’m glad I financially contributed.
Even Ronald Reagan could not have won in 2012.
“The country has changed.”
We are past the 51% tipping point.There are now more Takers than Makers. The Takers don’t see themselves as takers. They see themselves in circumstances out of their control in which they just need a “little help” and use the voting booth to get it. No inconvenience of personal responsibility involved here.
Hispanics tipped the election. Many must not realize they are causing the US to become like the bad governments they fled. Nothing good comes from the corruption of trading your vote in exchange for left wing politicians granting citizenship to your illegal friends. I’m sorry this is harsh, but if you did this, you are corrupt. Go back home.
Those cookies don’t look good to me either.
They look cheap under an egregious heap of sugar saturated with food coloring. Romney wouldn’t put one in his mouth because he didn’t want to be on camera spitting it back out.
No wonder Pennsylvania is hard for Romney to win.
The reason why there is no help, is because last time, people did come to help. They drove hundreds of miles through bad weather, and damaged highways carrying their own gas to sell supplies at market price. But the shitty people didn’t like the higher market price and complained to politicians. Laws against “price gouging” this time persuaded help to stay in their warm homes and watch the hurricane on TV.
Dressed in a baggy black suit accented with multicolor sequins, the singer, who rose to fame from his star turn in “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” dramatically stormed the Defiance, Ohio stage to the shock of many of those in the audience, who turned to each other with questioning faces.
But it wasn’t just people in the crowd who were surprised to see Meat Loaf. Taking the stage a few moments later, Romney seemed as surprised as anyone to have received the singer’s backing.
The aging rocker, perhaps best known for his 1994 hit “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That),” performed a series of power ballads familiar only to the most devoted Meat Loaf fans
‘This is the most important election in the history of the United States,” Meat Loaf explained. “Because there has storm clouds come over the United States. There is thunderstorms over Europe. There are hail storms–and I mean major hail storms–in the Middle East. There are storms brewing through China, through Asia, through everywhere… I want you to know there is one man who will stand tall in this country and fight the storm and bring the United States back to what it should be. Gov. Mitt Romney!”
“Meat Loaf was here,” the GOP candidate said. “Can you believe it?”
