The Obama economy

If you doubt that the things the left does and claims to do to help us are having the exact opposite result, check out ZeroHedge’s post. In one month the country lost 523K full time jobs, which were replaced with almost 800K part time jobs. Do I need to mention what signature Obama progressive policies are behind this shift, or is it sinking in for people that think if government says it is free, … Read more

That was then…

Yeah, that Video is Obama back when he was telling us to believe in big nanny state collectivist government. He and his donkey horde were going to fix all the shit evil Boosh and President Cheney had broken. As I predicted then, the exact opposite happened. Progressives, like little children are masters at undermining others running government and finding everything they feel is faulty, but when they are running the show, things really go … Read more

Another myth about “The Party of the Little People” getting busted?

And it is about time. People are wizening to the fact the people ripping them off the hardest are those that have been claiming, for decades, to be on their side and they are not happy. It is not a mistake that when progressives grab power, the policies they put into place to redress the wrongs they constantly harp about, actually do the exact opposite of what they tell everyone they want to do. … Read more

Progressives and their money…

I have always held the belief that today’s modern left is simply a modern day version of the old and corrupt aristocratic members of the feudal or guild systems of the middle ages – entities that closely guarded access to the benefits that membership provided, while lording it over everyone – and amounts to nothing but a protection racket for the connected. The progressive oligarchy smartened up however, knowing that simply doing business as usual, … Read more

Seriously? This is news how?

Gallup has a poll/study titled “In U.S., Depression Rates Higher for Long-Term Unemployed” which makes the claim that “Mental health poorest among those jobless for six months or more” as seen here:

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The longer that Americans are unemployed, the more likely they are to report signs of poor psychological well-being. About one in five Americans who have been unemployed for a year or more say they currently have or are

Are we there yet?

While desperate democrats, worried about the well-deserved shellacking that should be coming their way in the election at the end of this year, are desperately pissing away tax payer dollars to ward off the disastrous consequences of their economic policies, the truth about how horrible the impact on said policies on the economy is can’t be hidden:

Despite adding more than 8 million people to the working-age population since 2007, total employment has

What’s the definition of insanity again?

My best take on that is the failures of Keynesian economics, and the fact that the left, constantly enacting economic growth crushing, marxist wealth redistribution class warfare schemes and scams, soul sucking legislation and policies, by fiat these days, has decided that the cure for the damage these ludicrous divide & conquer opportunities to waste and steal tax payer money cause, is to piss away even more tax payer money.

So I am not the only one that saw through the bullshit?

When I originally started seeing the minimally covered LSM spin about the seriously disappointing U.S. First Quarter Gross Domestic Product numbers, and stories like this one claiming the reason we only saw a 0.1% growth instead of the projected already crappy 1.2%, was the harsh winter, my bullshit detector went off. On the one hand the LSM has been trying real hard to pretend the past winter was not one of the nastiest, coldest, … Read more

This is the sort of change he promised

While I am less bothered to see this phenomenon is happening in the People’s Republic of California, a deep blue state, and one of the reasons the economically illiterate idiot in the WH was elected, not once, but twice, it is still saddening to see it happen. It shows how bad things have gotten:

Debbie Rohr lives with her husband and twin teenage sons in a well-tended three-bedroom home in Salinas. The ranch-style house has

Unintended consequence!

Or something. Yeah, sure. What do you ask am I talking about? Well, the left’s recent realization that carrying a shit-ton of student debt will prevent you from buying a home. Now the left limits it to first time home buyers, but it applies to any homebuyer at all: if you have a student debt that is as big as a mortgage you have shown you are not a reliable debtor to most sane … Read more
