Sequestration isn’t as bad as I exaggerated it to be yesterday. It’s worse. Out of the 143 Million people who work, Sequestration will cause 170 Million of them to lose their jobs. It’s Obamacare on steroids and it’s growing huge.
OK, so that’s a wee tad inaccurate. It could even be argued that Congresswoman Maxine Waters respects the truth about as much as Occupy Wall Street demonstrators respect police cars. She sincerely has no clue what Sequestration will do or will not do to U3, U6 or U235 unemployment rates. But hey, look! A microphone! Journalists!
It’s like walking a bored and jumpy dog past a fire hydrant. Her brain disengages and her mouth pops open. Comedy ensues. John Stewart could take the night off. Except for one problem; Congresswoman Waters wasn’t telling jokes.

When you run for President, you have to give hundreds if not thousands of speeches over a very short time period. You get asked the same question – or variations on it – by | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES In the past we’ve seen large, well-connected businesses run into trouble, and then run to government to keep afloat and unafraid of competition. The airlines do it, GM did it, the banks did it, and every time Democrats and establishment Republicans oblige. We appear to have found the next industry cozy with politicians that’s going to ask for one. | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Fame is a distorting and highly overrated quality – as the late, great David Bowie knew so well. Especially now in the Internet Age – when everyone shares publicly every tiny facet of their existence. Especially now in the Omni-Media Age – in which was born the phrase “Famous for being famous” (See: Kardashians). But the things that allow | Read More »
His messaging in that first hour and going through the debate, was remarkable that’ going resonate on Tuesday. But I’m gonna be very curious to see when Senator Cruz out produces expectations and comes in a first second third place, if he’s gonna get the same kind of press.
