Hiding in Plain Sight for 31 years in Happy Valley
This guy Sandusky is in the same class or league as Jeffrey Dahmer or John Gacy. Dahmer and Gacy’s victims were a little older, but the pattern is pretty much the same. So far there is no evidence that Sandusky dispatched any of his victims, but because the authorities are having a difficult time finding Victim #2 who was approximately 10 years old at the | Read More »
OWS, “what are we fighting for?”.
This protest thing about the evils of capitalism has been going on since, well… capitalism. Properly defined as the production of goods and services through the ownership of private property, capitalism, is a relatively new concept in the history of mankind, but has produced the greatest results and prosperity of any society or economy that has existed since the Cro-Magnon man fought with the dinosaurs. | Read More »
How come Republicans get better results?
The Florida legislature was controlled by Democrats from the end of the Civil War (1867) until 1995. Since 1995, the GOP has kept and built majorities in both the house and the senate in the Florida legislature. From the mid to late 80’s and into the early 1990’s, we had a serious, if not crisis stage violent crime problem. One of the main reasons for | Read More »
This is a good word it means: needless repetition of an idea, especially in words other than those of the immediate context, without imparting additional force or clearness Barack Hoover Obama and his cheerleaders on the left repeat this mantra over and over, more taxes on millionaires and billionaires. But what about clearness: In other words, if you favor raising taxes on millionaires and billionaires | Read More »

Meaningless poll number two
A poll that says that only 15% of respondents approve of the job Congress is doing is fairly meaningless. How many people reading this post approve of the job Maxine Waters is doing? Probably zero. However, in Maxine’s District, she won re-election in 2010 with 79% of the vote. Nancy Pelosi had a national approval rating in 2010 of 16%, she won re-election in her | Read More »
Is the left totally losing it, over the tea party or is it just my imagination?
Typically, despots, tyrants, dictators and groups that seek to take power over others through force need to have an evil enemy or target group that is the reason for all the ills of their current society. Capitalists have perennially been a favorite target group. Adolf Hitler used the communists and the Jews as the groups that were causing all of the hardships that the German | Read More »
Compare Obama’s record to a head coach in the NFL
Obama’s record 0-16 Home prices have dropped more since Obama’s inauguration, on a percentage basis, than during the Great Depression of the 1930s. 2011 will be the worst year for new home sales in 50 years SS COLA 2010/zero 2011/zero 2012/1.2 percent UE rate has averaged 9.2 percent since inauguration, first 9 percent, three year run since the Great Depression Going on 5 trillion added | Read More »
Meaningless poll number one
A poll saying 70% in favor of a tax hike on people who earn 200K or more per year is meaningless. First, I would think that 95% of respondents would be in favor because less than 5% of tax returns have earned income more than 200K. Anyone is in favor of tax increase on someone else. If you don’t think that the tax increase is | Read More »
Oh, please not more shovel ready jobs again
The (D)s are saying that the President needs to propose something really big to get people back to work. Excuse me, but isn’t 5 trillion a pretty big stimulus? Over the last 3 years the Fed has pumped about 2 trillion of paper money into the system, there was 700 B in TARP, there was 874B in ARRA, and the (D)’s also increased fed spending | Read More »
File this under.. I hope they don’t notice
Social Security Cola adjustment coming out in mid-October (prediction of 1.2%). Since Obama’s inauguration, there’s been no inflation says the administration . Cola in 2010 was 0 and 2011 was 0. This is a real good indication of how good at math this President is and how concerned he is with the senior vote. The following are all price increases since inauguration day. If you | Read More »
Obama’s September Keynesian fantasy
Here is what happens when Obama keeps proposing “jobs programs” . Can we survive five more years of this?
Bus trip to Swing ? States ? Why not FL?
Since when are MN,IA, and IL swing states? If these states aren’t firmly in the Obama column, then he needs to hire a new campaign staff. It would have made more sense to take the bus through MI,OH and IN because these are the states Obama needs to keep, if he wants to be re-elected. And, It looks increasingly like the Obama campaign is looking | Read More »
Binging on Hate Speech
This is like the addict or alcoholic who comes off rehab, has a slip and goes on a binge. Usually they will describe the pre-binge feeling and attitude as “Oh, F…k it. If you’re going to get wet, you may as well go swimming.” The “TONE” that the left said that the right had prior to the Giffords shooting which they said caused the rampage | Read More »
However this goes down, the House GOP wins
The House has BHO in their sights (since I can’t say crosshairs). BHO can only do three things at this point concerning the debt ceiling. First, he can accept the fact that the ceiling won’t be raised because he and the Senate won’t agree to Cut, Cap and Balance and direct federal agencies and the treasury to start prioritizing. This has about a 1% chance | Read More »
Who knew? Primaries in WI on Tuesday.
This Tuesday, July 12, primaries will be held in the 6 recall races in Wisconsin against the GOP Senate incumbents. The primary is necessary because other GOP candidates registered to run in the recall election against the (D) candidates. But since we’ve talked before on these pages that the recall election process in WI was never intended to be a party thing, the “fake” (D) | Read More »
Curfews are unconstitutional
Last year it was the summer of recovery, this year it’s the Summer of Violence. How are the cities going to cope with urban teens who are basically parentless, moneyless, and jobless. Well, the old standby comes in to play, the CURFEW. Curfew’s are also unconstitutional. All a teen would have to tell a leo is that he/she is going to church or going to | Read More »
Understanding the Birth Death model
The birth death model that the Bureau of Labor Statistics uses is not the number of people born in the US vs. the number of people dying. What the B/D model tells us is the estimate of the number of jobs created in any month by newly formed companies v. the number of jobs lost by companies going out of business. How can they accurately | Read More »
Whoops, the no one can beat BHO has changed, but still debunking Part III.
It’s amazing what a bad jobs report will do. 1) In the States that the GOP needs to turn, only 11% or less of the people who voted for BHO in 2008 need to be apathetic enough to sit out the vote. 5% in FL, 1% in NC, 11% in VA, 9% in OH, and 2% in IN. Already, BHO is taking IN off the | Read More »
Debunking the no-one can beat BHO in 2012 Myth, part II
1) If the Fed goes ahead with another backdoor stimulus in the form of QE III count on gold at $2000, gasoline retail at $5 to $6, and food staples up another 20% by March 2012. 2) 45 million people are on food stamps. This means that these families have no assets to speak of and a non-existent income or an income below the poverty | Read More »
Debunking the no one can beat BHO in 2012 myth
Beware of Registered voter polling. Example: Quinnipiac did a poll in FL , polling 463 (R) out of 1193 registered voters. 550 (D) and the rest (I). This is a little too heavy on the (D) voters and not enough on the (I). Also, the percentages of registered voters per party is a bit optimistic on the (D) end because there was a gigantic increase | Read More »
Florida in 2012
From Howard Dean: The West is a big cushion. If we win Florida, we win the whole thing, and Florida is very, very winnable,” Dean said in an interview. From Debbie Schultz: (After Obama threw Israel under the bus)..Debbie Wasserman Schultz said, predicting Obama will win her home state. “He sent a very strong signal by asking me to chair the DNC about how important | Read More »
What about Virginia in 2012?
Those of us who view politics as almost an avocation and are always researching, reading, vetting candidates and looking at numbers, can’t really understand others, who pay little attention, show up at the last minute and vote on whims. Virginia really tells us something about the 2012 election. In 2004, 1.7 million people voted for GWB and in 2008 1.72 million people voted for McCain. | Read More »
How important is Michigan?
Looking at the 2008 and 2010 vote totals in MI, some extremely surprising results stick out. In just Oakland and Wayne counties alone, half a million more people voted (D) in 2008, than in 2010. Barry won MI with 800K more votes than McCain and nearly 800K more people voted (D) for Barry than voted for Snyder in 2010 in only 8 counties. The (R) | Read More »
Who is Sherrod Brown?
Sherrod Brown: who is this guy? He has spent his entire adult life in Ohio government. He lists his profession as teacher; however he has never been employed as a teacher. After graduating from Yale, he ran for office in Ohio and has been an elected representative of something since 1975. As far as National Office is concerned he has never been seriously threatened except | Read More »
