Self immolation 101.

In a stunning display of how unconcerned and unrealistic the left really is, a too large majority of the people that live off the labor of the productive, voted to keep the gravy train speeding down the tracks towards the collapsed bridge. The winning ticket?

Sunday’s election capped a stunning comeback for Hollande, whose career appeared to be all but over after he left the leadership of the Socialist Party in 2008.

Lesson of the day..

Ineptocracy –
(in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

If you still doubt that’s where we are at after the last 3 years and the gloabl revelations of the disfunctional nanny … Read more

What to do when the left calls Romney an out of touch rich guy..

Look, I am not very enthused about Romney, but that’s the guy that I am stuck with, and as I have repeatedly said, I would vote for anyone other than a child molester over Obama. However, the I am incensed by the left’s current attempt to create the narrative that Romney is an out of touch rich guy, and hence will do worse than the community organizer in chief and his cadre of crony capitalists, … Read more

THIS!!!!

The stock market seems to be pretending that the economy is doing good, but people are not buying this bullshit:

With the Dow Jones Industrial Average moving past 13,000 toward pre-financial-crisis highs, the conventional wisdom is that the stock markets expect a robust economy soon — just what President Obama needs to guarantee his re-election this fall.

Not so fast.

Yes, the economy may be improving after its anemic growth in 2011, which is

Hindsight is 20-20, and progressive stupid is forever

And I have no doubt that Barney’s claim that he told Obama to not push for the government takeover of healthcare seems a lot like this tool is again trying to dazzle people with his bullshit. Monday morning quarterbacking, and a piss poor attempt at it at best:

Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., said he advised President Obama against taking up health care reform following a special election in 2010 that changed Democrats’ fortunes in the

Count this as a blessing

What “this” am, I referring to in the title? Well, the revelation that the 112th Senate, run by Harry Reid, has been a do-nothing chamber for the last year or so:

For those who need proof that the Senate was a do-nothing chamber in 2011 beyond the constant partisan bickering and failure to pass a federal budget, there is now hard evidence that it was among the laziest in 20 years.

Stimulus update

If it costs, on average and pulling it off the top of my head, over $600K per job created by the stimuluspatronage bill, then I guess nobody should be surprised that it also cost us tax payers $205,075 to ‘Translocate’ One Shrub from Path of Stimulus Project in glorious People’s Republic of San Fran, where Queen Pelosi reigns supreme:

(CNSNews.com) — The government spent at least $205,075 in 2010 to “translocate” a single

More of the same.

Looks like the house voted on the Bowles-Simpson deficit reduction plan, and went down in flames.

The Bowles-Simpson deficit-reduction plan went down to a crushing defeat in the House late Wednesday night in a vote that damages the one bipartisan proposal that just a few months ago had seemed like a possible solution to the country’s debt woes.

The 382-38 defeat, with just 16 Republicans and 22 Democrats voting for it, marks a bad

NO WAY!

That big healthcare reform, a.k.a government takeover of healthcare so they can control another 1/6th of the economy thing, Nancy Pelosi told us we absolutely had to get passed, to figure out what would be in it, and would singlehandedly save our economy, by saving us tons of money, all based on what is absolutely the worst scoring requirements put together to make the ugliest pig look like the tastiest slab of bacon, isn’t going … Read more

Things to ponder

The WSJ has an interesting article about the current job claims puzzle:

Something about the U.S. economy isn’t adding up.

At 8.3%, the unemployment rate has fallen 0.7 percentage point from a year earlier and is down 1.7 percentage points from a peak of 10% in October 2009. Many other measures of the job market are improving. Companies have expanded payrolls by more than 200,000 a month for the past three months, according to
