The video posted below the fold is graphic. This is who we hitched our wagon to under the supreme leadership of our fearless and dedicated “post-turtle” President. These men will put every single one of us face-down if ever they get the opportunity. The religion of fear and intolerance is the greatest impediment to peace, the world has ever known.
Here is the scenario: The EPA wants to impose some rule on industry. They are required to conduct an analysis of the economic impact of their rule. Does that economic impact study include its effect on jobs?
“A few short weeks ago I came to the House floor after having purchased an iPad and said that I happened to believe, Mr. Speaker, that at some point in time this new device, which is now probably responsible for eliminating thousands of American jobs. Now Borders is closing stores because, why do you need to go to Borders anymore? Why do you need to go to Barnes & Noble? Buy an iPad and download your newspaper, download your book, download your magazine,” Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL, Chicago) said on the House floor Friday afternoon.
He is right you know. Furthermore, Netflix is killing video rental jobs, cell phones are killing pager industry jobs, Orbitz is killing travel agency jobs, email is killing postal service jobs, the airlines are killing jobs in the steamship lines, the automobile is killing stable-hand and buggy whip maker jobs, the railroads killed stagecoach jobs, the light-bulb killed the kerosene lamp industry, steam engines killed the sail makers trade, the cotton gin put cotton seed pickers out of work, the printing press destroyed the jobs of scribes and agriculture destroyed the jobs of hunters and gatherers.
It is a 10,000 year long disaster. If only there were a way to turn back the clock and recreate these lost jobs.
State Supreme Court Justice David Prosser emerged as the winner Friday over challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg in a heated election that drew national attention because of the fight over collective bargaining and a ballot reporting error in Waukesha County.
A canvass of vote totals from the state’s 72 counties finalized Friday afternoon shows Prosser beating Kloppenburg, an assistant attorney general, by 7,316 votes. Initial results in the election had showed Kloppenburg leading the race. The final canvass of the April 5 vote was completed 10 days after the election, the maximum allowed by state law.
The margin – 0.488% – is within the 0.5% limit that would allow Kloppenburg to request a statewide recount at taxpayers’ expense.
The anonymity associated with only pseudonyms is a problem for the Obama Administration. They want to know who you are and have released a 55 page document outlining their plan.
It offers examples of what the White House views as an “identity ecosystem,” including obtaining a digital ID from an Internet service provider that could be used to view your personal health information, or obtaining an ID linked to your cell phone that would let you log into IRS.gov to view payments and file taxes. The idea is to have multiple identity providers that are part of the same system.
See? They are from the government and they want to help. Of course even this site can track your user name, password and IP. It isn’t like websites can’t keep track of their users.
What I don’t have, however, is a database that ties your Revo handle to your Social Security number, tax history, employment history, criminal record, credit history, family members, the other sites you visit and everything else about you. Access to that information is not necessary to use this site, eBay, your back site, Amazon.com, whatever. It is, however, a big part of the government’s plan. It is almost like the government’s Internet ID system is more about tracking you than your convenience, huh?
Naaaaaaah! C’mon! The Commerce Department as a video explaining how ridiculous that notion is.
In 2005, the UN warned that there would be 50 million refugees created by Global Warming by 2010. These people would mostly come from areas inundated by rising sea levels, stricken with drought, or possibly invaded by griffins. These poor blighted souls would wander the world, begging for food and exhibiting their excellent tans.
Now that we’re in The Year of Our Lord 2011, a sharp blogger (Gavin Atkins) went back to find the UN’s prediction and mock how far out of reality it was. Worse, he had the audacity to look at the actual census numbers for the area mentioned in the UN report and found that most had actually gained population.
The UN will not be mocked. They have since scrubbed the Web site but Google Cache catches everything. You can see the original page here.
Despite all the conservative glee at the obvious failure of the Global Warming Cult, it is my sad duty to report that there is in fact a Global Warming refugee. The great irony is that the refugee is none other than Norman Meyers, the author of the UN report. A photo of Meyers, now homeless and living in a refugee camp located behind a Taco Bell dumpster, appears below.
On a party-line vote, the House of Representatives passed a Republican 2012 budget proposal which aims to start the country down the path of deficit reduction, but which Democrats warn will gut a vital safety net for seniors.
The House voted 235-193 to approve the plan by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., chairman of the House Budget Committee, though its future beyond that is uncertain. Still, Republicans say the country is on the precipice and they have no other choice but to start slashing trillions in future spending.
House lawmakers defeated a proposal by conservative Republicans to make deeper cuts to spending and tax rates than those proposed in the Republican budget, but only after last-minute maneuvering by Democrats on the House floor.
In a chaotic scene filled with shouting more typical of that which takes place in the British Parliament, the Republican Study Committee’s (RSC) alternative to Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) 2012 budget went down in a 119-136 vote.
It was gaveled shut only after Democratic leaders started pushing members to switch their “no” votes to “present,” in order to force a face-off between conservatives and the Republican leadership. A total of 176 lawmakers voted “present.”
If just eight more Republicans supported the RSC plan, Ryan’s proposal would have been history and the RSC plan would have been adopted. In other words, the Democrats almost killed the Ryan plan with a slick little parliamentary plan. Of course if Republicans would vote what they mean rather than what they feel is politically expedient, this sort of thing wouldn’t be possible.
For the record, the RSC plan cuts spending more than Ryan’s. It would, however, never make it through the Senate.
At the University of Waterloo, a female engineering student did a no no.
Hmmmmm…. Beach wear; looks pretty tame to me.
The University of Waterloo in Canada has suspended a team of students who built a racecar after a female member was photographed posing next to the car in a bikini and high heels.
University spokesman Michael Strickland said the temporary suspension is in response to an “inappropriate and denigrating” photograph that appeared online, as well as in Tuesday’s edition of the Waterloo Region Record.
Women wearing high heels and fishnet stockings were prominent in a demonstration on Sunday to protest a Toronto police officer’s comment that women could avoid rape if they didn’t dress like “sluts,” an attitude that organizers said points to a wider problem in the justice system.
“Whatever we wear, wherever we go, yes means yes, and no means no,” the crowd chanted, as they marched on police headquarters, calling on police to stop blaming rape survivors for what happened to them.
Feminism? Sexual exploitation? Sexual revolution? Freedom? Denigration? Beauty? Pornography? Art? Liberation? Repression? Beats the hell out of me. If there is one thing I don’t get, it is the social mores of female sexuality.
The Question: Which of these have absolutely NOTHING to do with the “quantity or timing of their family” as this half-wit FORMER speaker would indicate in the following video. (just throwing that out there…)
When Nancy Pelosi voted against the budget measure Thursday, she did little to hide her anger with the White House over the fact that Obama, for the first time, had left her out of the negotiations on a major deal. Instead, he chose to work directly with Boehner and Reid to hammer out the compromise that each could take back to their caucuses for approval.
“I have been very disappointed in the administration to the point where I’m embarrassed that I endorsed him,” one senior Democratic lawmaker said. “It’s so bad that some of us are thinking, is there some way we can replace him? How do you get rid of this guy?”
“I feel no ownership of that or responsibility to it, except to say we don’t want to shut down the government,” the minority leader said. “As was pretty evident, House Democrats were not a part of that agreement.”
Since we all know this deal doesn’t cut dick, this has to be a Kabuki dance, right? A little nudge from the House Moonbat Coalition to make Obama look like a moderate? He is already in campaign mode and it is pretty difficult to imagine him successful in a national election with the support of the likes Nanzi Pelosi. This has to be stagecraft, right? “See? Pelosi hates him! He is a moderate!”
I understand, if you think the title seems celebratory, but I assure you, that’s only because it is. I promise you, on my daughter’s grave, that I will not shed a single tear for this whining, sniveling bitch, or his “cause”.
I would venerate him, a hero on this site, if he had only stood for what is right and good.
Remember the Duke Lacrosse team rape case in 2006? It was the result false rape accusation made against three members of the men’s lacrosse team at Duke University by what turned out to by a lying whore who was digging the notoriety. Of course when a black woman makes an accusation against white frat boys, the entire moonbatosphere rallies behind her to how little the evidence supports her claim. The “Group of 88″ professors at the school immediately denounced the players and supported the accuser. The DA Mike Nifong went all in prosecuting what he wrongly thought was a career maker, not career breaker.
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — University of North Carolina student Quinn Matney is gay. For that, he says, someone scarred him for life.
Matney said a man walked up to him last week near a foot bridge on the Chapel Hill campus, called him a derogatory name, told him, “here is a taste of hell,” and held a heated object to his skin for several seconds, leaving third and fourth-degree burns.
He described the assault, which university officials are calling a hate crime, as “relentless burning, searing pain.”
“It has burned all the way through the flesh and is burning through muscle and tendon,” Matney said. He said he has an infection and limited movement in some fingers, and the nerve damage may require surgery.
Jessica, 16, told KIRO Radio’s Dori Monson Show that a week before spring break, the students commit to a week-long community service project. She decided to volunteer in a third grade class at a public school, which she would like to remain nameless.
“At the end of the week I had an idea to fill little plastic eggs with treats and jelly beans and other candy, but I was kind of unsure how the teacher would feel about that,” Jessica said.
She was concerned how the teacher might react to the eggs after of a meeting earlier in the week where she learned about “their abstract behavior rules.”
“I went to the teacher to get her approval and she wanted to ask the administration to see if it was okay,” Jessica explained. “She said that I could do it as long as I called this treat ‘spring spheres.’ I couldn’t call them Easter eggs.”
Because giving children candy filled plastic eggs is dangerously close to Congress establishing religion… unless you rename them that is. Then it is okay. Well, other than the fact that eggs have nothing to do with Christianity and they aren’t spheres, that makes perfect sense. The Congress stays safely withing the confines of the First Amendment for another day.
Want to save the Earth? Easy, just buy a couple of ice trays. To the long list of human inventions that are wrecking global climate—the internal combustion engine, the industrial era factory—add the automatic ice maker.
Here’s the truth: We cannot have an honest conversation about the deficit until we return fairness to our tax system, and that includes addressing our medium and long term fiscal problems created by the $100 billion-a-year Bush tax cuts, as President Obama made clear today. But we also must close corporate tax loopholes in a way that raises additional net revenues. We must insist that corporations and the rich pay their fair share instead of shortchanging education, health care, technology and other investments in our future. President Obama does not yet have the balance right between spending cuts and new revenue.
I went ahead and translated it for you…
Here’s the truth: We cannot have an honest conversation about the deficit until we squeeze every last drop out of successful Americans and that includes raising taxes across the board. We must also cut corporate profits making it difficult for businesses to capitalize, grow and hire in order to weaken the capitalist machine. We must insist that capitalists surrender their wealth and transfer it to the proletariat. President Obama still does not have a proper revolutionary fervor and struggles with his bourgeois false consciousness. Until he is willing to stab a blade into the heart of the capitalist oppressor, the people will struggle on without him! Death to the bourgeois swine! Long live the glorious people’s revolution. Forward ever! Backward never.
There are so many ways this story could go, as far as speculation as to what actually happened that caused this. This IS news from San Francisco after all. I may have to follow this one. I just MUST know what the explanation for this event will actually be.
