MORE STUPIDITY – ignoring reality

On Sunday, 12 September 2010, a George F. Will article declared “Americans have good reason not to believe in Obamanomics“.

Interesting!  After the Bush deficit rocketed up, Will declares Obamanomics has achieved this: The American people “owed slightly more when the recession began, when household consumer debt was $2.6 trillion. The painful but necessary process of deleveraging is proceeding slowly: Such debt has been reduced only to $2.4 trillion.”  So the deficit has ceased its increase and been reduced by a very real $200 Billon.  Think about the percentage rate of deficit increase needed to get it to double in eight years – when the starting point was a projected surplus (thanks to Clinton) which would go for decades and eventually make the nation debt free and an unstoppable global economic powerhouse with the credit available to buy any nation.

As Will said, “Never have so many of us owed so much” – of course he fails to credit Bush and Reagan for this.  Instead he bemoans the fact that Obama’s view of economics has actually begun to reduce the national debt.  Obviously, Will just doesn’t get it!

Obamanomics seems to be working.  There is a bad housing market; much unemployment – and a total disregard for the fact that anyone with an ounce of brains knew this was going to happen at this time – and knew it forty years ago when we recognized the Baby-Boom was turning to a Baby-Bust. 

FIRST:  The Baby-Bust generation has no need to expand the number of housing units created for the Baby-Boomers … They are inheriting the homes of their parents, occupying the city residences while their parents retire to their country vacation) place.

Then there is the many houses that are simply empty – empty because they should have been filled by immigrants (like those who entered the USA after WW2) who the GOP wants to and has successfully kept out.  In addition, because the GOP has downplayed the need for conservation and underwritten the drilling for domestic oil – artificially depressing energy costs, and setting us up for disaster in fifteen years or so – there is no need to demolish the older housing stock and build new energy efficient housing.  We will – there will be a housing boom – but it will over a decade before it begins, and longer before the idiots notice.

SECOND:  The Baby-Boomers are retiring or dying.  the economy and economic models are bound to change – this is a period of adjustment which will continue for five years before it stabilizes.  Then we will see a period of fifteen to twenty years  before the first Baby-Buster creates a need for a new model to accompany their retirement.

If we don’t get our economic house in order –- if we don’t reduce the deficit as a percentage of GDP to the levels it was at prior to Reagan – we can happily look forward the the failure of the Great experiment.

The right-wing evangelicals will get their war, and their KING, and their slavery … but they will be dead and it will be our great-grandchildren who will have to endure and correct.

There is one eternal truth: Those who wish the Most Harm to the Most People will not cease in their efforts – because they are helped by intellectuals like George F Will.   Intellectuals who refuse to use their mental capacity to recognize what is being done, and needs to be done.

Why Obama is President…

Obama Understands – GOP hasn’t a clue:

WASHINGTON, 10 September 2010 — President Obama gave an impassioned call on Friday for tolerance and better relations between Muslims and non-Muslims at home and abroad, defending the “inalienable rights” of those who worship Islam to practice their religion freely.

“We have to make sure that we don’t start turning on each other,” he said. “And I will do everything that I can, as long as I am president of the United States, to remind the American people that we are one nation, under God. And we may call that God different names, but we remain one nation. And, you know, as somebody who, you know, relies heavily on my Christian faith in my job, I understand, you know, the passions that religious faith can raise.”

“This country stands for the proposition that all men and women are created equal, that they have certain inalienable rights,” Mr. Obama said. “And what that means is that if you could build a church on a site, you could build a synagogue on a site, if you could build a Hindu temple on a site, then you should be able to build a mosque on the site.”

Our Troops are “out there putting their lives on the line for us,” Mr. Obama said. “And we’ve got to make sure that we are crystal clear for our sakes and their sakes: they are Americans and we honor their service. And part of honoring their service is making sure that they understand that we don’t differentiate between them and us.


American extremists (Inquisitor and Nazi want-a-be’s) want to promote ignorance.  They want Creationism to replace science; they underfund education and reduce taxes for the nobility (wealthy merchants of fraud who ship American next generation hi-tech energy producing jobs to China).

Wait for it – American will soon decide if they wish to implode or return to another five decades of prosperity.  It all depends on how many GOP victories there are in November.  Ideally, the pendants will be wrong and the Democrats will gain seats.

On the other hand, the first step in the destruction of the USA is to extend the Tax Cuts for the wealthy. With a deficit of 13 Trillion, the cuts have contributed 1.7 Trillion. Reagen doubled the debt (which was a a century low when Carter left office), Clinton stopped the hemorrhaging of money out of the nation (China was buying the debt) and started to get our fiscal house in order; Bush came in and doubled the debt again and added to that a costly military action which targeted the wrong people, and on top of that, added a major recession. Now Obama is getting a tourniquet on that newest GOP economic hemorrhage -- and the GOP is doing all in its power to both remove it, and cut open a major artery.

Pastor Terry Jones -- any relation to "Jonestown" ;-D

Washington Post report: “KABUL - Gen. David H. Petraeus on Tuesday denounced plans by a Florida church to burn copies of the Koran this weekend, … It is precisely the kind of action the Taliban uses and could cause significant problems”

Yep and it is also the kind of action which is consistent with the Nazis, and which marks the history of Inquisitions, Witch Trials, and burning people alive – typical for their ilk. Also consistent with those who eventually vote Republican … watch … listen … take note of how quiet the Florida Republicans and Bush family will be on the matter.

Watch … listen … take note of how quiet the National Republicans and RNC will be on the matter. Watch them turn their attention to the destruction of our economy … Watch them focus on saying NO to jobs and improvement of the nation.

The roads in this nation are a disgrace.

As reported in a NY Times article, Obama recently indicated, “Republicans are betting that between now and the Nov. 2 elections, Americans will forget the Republican economic policies that led to the recession. He said Republicans have opposed virtually everything he has done to help the economy, and have proposed solutions that have only made the problem worse.”

SPEAKING IN MILWAUKEE, Obama stated, "That philosophy didn't work out so well for middle-class families all across America. … It didn't work out so well for our country. All it did was rack up record deficits and result in the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression."

The GOP, and Nazis running that Florida Church, work on a simple basis: people are to stupid and evil to really care about their fellow man or the dictates of their religion …

Try thinking, DO UNTO OTHERS.

Burn their scripture and sit quiet because you have authorized them to burn yours. Burn their people alive and remember, by doing so, you authorized them to burn you alive … the dictate is simple: do not do to another that which you would find hateful if done to you.

The corollary is basic – what you do to another you are authorizing (& welcoming) their doing to you. The people in Florida want a war with Islam … they want it to be a Holy War … and they will die … die because the followers of Islam out number these pitiful sects of disbelievers … these anti-Christ types who want death, destruction, hardship and poverty to rule the world.

Three cheers for Florida … it’s setting the course for a history that will bring about the end of America … that Americans want to follow that course will be proved in the November mid-term elections.

Nice to identify the NAZIS in Florida ... seems there is one for every state in the union -- plus a leader.
From the NY Times:
"Pastor Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center, which has about 50 members, said he understands the government's concerns but plans to go forward with the burning Saturday to mark the ninth anniversary of the attacks.

"He left the door open to change his mind, saying he is still praying about his decision, which was condemned Tuesday by an interfaith coalition that met in Washington to respond to a spike in anti-Muslim bigotry."

What's neat -- the Vatican, which was quiet during the rise of Naziera (which effectively was working on the Vatican agenda) has now, through Tuesday's Vatican newspaper, published an article in which Catholic bishops, including Archbishop Lawrence John Saldanha of Lahore, Pakistan, criticized Jones' plan. Of course, given the prophecy (by a 12th century Monk who has yet to be wrong) that this Pope is the last-but-one, the Vatican needs to play it safe -- otherwise they would again be calling for a Holy Crusade (Christian Jihad). Poor babies ... doomed to see the last in their line -- sometime around the spring of 2013. LOL Just to pick a time out of thin air)
From Washington Post: September 9, 2010 5:15:16 PM
"GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- A Christian minister in Florida is canceling plans to burn Korans on Sept. 11, heeding an international outcry that drew criticism from President Obama and religious and political leaders across the Muslim world.

"Rev. Terry Jones of the Dove Outreach Center also said that the leader of a Muslim group that wants to build a 13-story Islamic center and mosque near Ground Zero has agreed to relocate the center. The agreement could not immediately be confirmed."

YEA TEAM -- another Hitler wan'ta'be backs down (for now) ... but look for more saber-rattling from those who want to return to Inquisitions and Witch burning ... A PEW STUDY, comparing income and religious intensity across nations, found that there is an inverse relationship between the personal incomes (and GDP) and the religious intensity of the nation. The more religious the poorer the nation. At the moment, the United States is on the borderline -- we are still weal;thy, but our religious zeal has yet to cross the 60% threshold where nations turn "third world". We are getting there, and the current economic problems are the first signs of the "Evangelical Effect" on income. SHALL WE PRAY -- LOL
AH the fun of it:
YAHOO NEWS 8:45 Pastor says Quran-burning suspended, not canceled
By ANTONIO GONZALEZ, Associated Press Writer Antonio Gonzalez, Associated Press Writer

"GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The anti-Muslim leader of a tiny Florida church says he was lied to and is rethinking his decision to cancel burning Qurans to mark 9/11."

"Pastor Terry Jones earlier Thursday had backed off his threat to burn the Quran after he said he was promised that a planned Islamic center and mosque would be moved away from New York's ground zero. Muslim leaders denied there was such a deal.

"Later outside his church he said that the imam he thought he made the deal with "clearly, clearly lied to us" about moving the mosque."

AH THE WOULD-BE-HITLER continues his papal move to initiate a global Crusade to surpass those of the Catholic leader. The real move is the one that wants to build a Christian Center smack dab in the middle of the WTC ruins. But you knew that was in the cards ... I pointed out thae possibility in earlier posts ...

9/11 is a Christian holiday ... bow down and worship their lord and master ... SATAN.

I assume you'll happily devote yourselves and your children to the death march in foreign lands `... poverty ... third world existence ...

OH DID YOU READ ABOUT SOLAR POWER? Remember when Jimmy Carter put collectors on the Whitehouse? Wanted to get us energy independent ... Reagan make a big show of taking them down -- before he doubled the national debt. Any case ... Seems China is now the world leader in the production of Solar cells! We, and everyone, are buying the collectors from China ... China is the leader in jobs related to is self-sufficient power -- which also means they will be the self-sufficiency leader.
GEE the GOP answer is to ship jobs to China and fund the transfer with tax breaks for the wealthy -- so they can also ship there money out before our economy goes bye-bye.

ON YOUR KNEES -- !SUCKERS! ... in November you'll vote them the power to destroy your families.
Breaking News: NAZI PASTOR, Terry Jones, RUNS FOR COVER ... tiem isn't yet right for the new Inquisitions ... wait for it ;-D
Breaking News Alert: Fla. pastor says his church will never burn Quran (Saturday) September 11, 2010 8:4:18 AM ... In an interview with MSNBC on Saturday, Florida Pastor Terry Jones said that his church will never burn a Koran, even if a mosque is built near ground zero.

New Mexico – Honor, or Dishonor

Again from the New York Times: “BILL RICHARDSON, New Mexico’s departing governor, is known for his studied sense of theater. But when he recently declared that he would hold a hearing to consider a posthumous pardon for the state’s most notorious resident — William Bonney, a k a Henry McCarty, a k a Billy the Kid — a lot of us wondered if he had lost his mind.”

Why the pardon?

“At issue is a deal made in 1879 by one of Mr. Richardson’s predecessors, Lew Wallace (later the author of “Ben-Hur”). Wallace promised to grant Billy the Kid amnesty for murders he committed during the so-called Lincoln County War if he would testify about a killing he had witnessed; the Kid testified, but Wallace’s men reneged on the deal. Two years later Pat Garrett, the sheriff of Lincoln County, shot and killed the outlaw.’

OK – short answer … it is NOT what folk legend William Bonney did, or did not do -- that’s just smoke and mirrors by those who, today, are imposing their immorality upon the nation and are thus destroying it.

The real issue here is: Can someone trust the Government – be it State or Federal – to honor its own statements, and, by extension, its own laws?  Or are government officials immoral and corrupt?

The answer will be made clear by the actions of New Mexico.  If New Mexicans are honorable and worthy of trust, the Pardon will be granted -– as originally negotiated and promised.  If New Mexico is dishonorable and its people unworthy of being called Americans, they will reject the Pardon that their predecessors agreed to … Bonney kept his part of the agreement … given the time that has passed, and the fact he was killed before the State acted, it is not a purely symbolic act. 

Symbolically, New Mexicans are either lower than dirt and doomed to exist in the deepest  levels of Hell, or are honorable people worthy of national respect in other matters reflecting their current ability to render just and honorable judgment.

Wonder where they stand on the Arizona Immigration Law?  The Washington Post concluded an article on that bit of fluff with the statement: “Either Arizona lawmakers will have to learn that constitutional and moral principle, or they will have to take the Golden Rule off our license plates.”

Yep New Mexico is faced with a GOLDEN RULE choice: If their state made an agreement with them, and they fulfilled their part of the bargain, would they want the state to renege?  How would they feel about that?  As they do to Bonney, so the state, and nation, will henceforth be free to do to them.

As to them enjoying an eternal vacation in Hell –- Golden Rule happens to the the only criteria agreed to by ALL the world’s major religions.  It is the single criteria of faith … and has been for at least six thousand years … it is stated in the ancient tombs of the first Dynastic Egyptian period; in the ancient Sanskrit texts and traditions going back to 3125BCE; in the ancient first dynastic era in China …

This is not about Bonney – it is about New Mexico and New Mexicans … they give the pardon or accept damnation.  And how you decide … the position you take on the issue … determines how you generally decide … and that attitude determines your fate.

Arianna Huffington: Third World America: Why I Wrote the Book and What We Need to Do to Save America's Middle Class : Growing up in Greece, everyone knew someone who'd left to find a better life in America. That was the phrase everyone associated with America: "a better life." When I came to live here in 1980, I knew there was no other place I'd rather live. Thirty years later, I still feel that way. But something went wrong -- terribly wrong -- and put our country on a very dangerous path that threatens to transform us into Third World America. It's a jarring phrase, I know, but I decided to make that the title of my new book, which is being released today, as a warning -- to make it clear that if we don't change course that could very well be our future. But the book is not just a critique of the many ways things are broken -- it's a practical guide for how to fix them.

Palestinians & Republicans – both camps are populated by idiots


Gleaning words from  the Jewish Daily Forward article: ”Boycotted, Bothered and Bewildered Good Fences” By J.J. Goldberg (Published September 01, 2010, issue of September 10, 2010.)  We find that there is a reason the Israeli IQ is significantly lower than the general IQ of Jews.  (And now are displaying behavior I have routinely associated with the American Republican Party)

“Israel … now faces a concerted effort by Palestinians under its rule to isolate the Israeli settlers living among them in the West Bank. … The weapon of choice is a boycott of settlement-based products, services and jobs.  And Jerusalem doesn’t have a clue what to do about it.”

OK There you have the first problem – The Government is too stupid to bask in the stupidity of the Palestinians.  If the products are worth producing, and therefore worth having,  the Palestinians will need to replace their sources – so the question is, are the new sources cheaper than the current one being boycotted?  If not, than the Palestinians will inflict economic hardship on themselves to a greater and more sustained level than they will on Israel.  SO WHY SHOULD ISRAEL CARE !?! 

“The problem is that this is unlike any boycott Israel has faced before. For one thing, it’s working. Israeli news reports tell of factories shutting down and millions of shekels lost.”  Again the question – were the products worth producing … if the boycott can have than effect, than the market was too limited.

NOW THIS IS OVERBOARD: “Knesset speaker Reuven Rivlin called it “a declaration of war against Israel.” The Yesha Council, which represents Jewish settlers in the West Bank, called it “economic terrorism.””  Of course the Palestinians are at war with Israel … they would rather be at war than produce anything productive or better their living conditions and the prospects for their children … these are people who have call themselves refugees since the 1930’s … these are people who have achieved nothing!  Have no prospects for achievement!  Add nothing to the human condition and world as a whole!  Of course they are at war:  Then are junk yard dogs barking and biting … but worthless in any civilized setting.

Now consider this: “For another thing, this boycott isn’t exactly anti-Israel in the normal sense. Up to now Israel has argued to foreign governments and universities, mostly successfully, that an across-the-board boycott of Israeli products and institutions is an attack on the Jewish state itself, not on any particular policy. That proves that Israel’s foes are bent on destroying it, not merely changing it. But the new campaign attacks only a specific policy, and a highly controversial one at that: building an Israeli civilian presence in the still-disputed territory captured in 1967.  There’s no challenge to Israel proper or its economy; Palestinian leaders have stated repeatedly.”

SO!  What’s the big deal.  These guys don’t want construction in Israeli territory … Territory that Israel owns only because these Palestinians idiots were stupid enough to start a war they couldn’t win  – an act taken in conjunction with Arab idiots, like those who are disrupting peace in third world countries across the globe.

Palestinians want to be poor and suffer … it’s their thing in life.  They think suffering is what makes a Jew, and they are desperate to become the new Jews.  Islamic people always have been desperate to become Jews – they were, after all, before the Arab invasions, originally of the Ten Tribes … Palestinian DNA affirms that connection.  That’s why they were formed around being Kosher and their prophet moved to, and organized in, a Jewish town.  Only problem … these idiots are too stupid to know their own history and genetics.

But, of course, ”Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in May, that Palestinian boycotters only “hurt themselves.””  Obviously Netanyahu knows reality when he sees it.

“Even more awkward, the boycott is an embodiment of something Israel has been demanding for years: that Palestinians pursue their goals non-violently. Boycotts are not violent. Dubbing a settlement boycott illegitimate suggests, in effect, that Palestinians have no right to pursue their goals at all.”  Which only goes to prove that there are low IQ individuals in the Knesset  -- but didn’t they get quoted ??? Yep the idiots speak out (Does remind me of Sarah Palin and her Tea Party friends).

Now to more idiots – actors seeking publicity through stupidity (Think Roseanne Barr) who announced their own boycott “in late August by a group of Israeli theater personalities, who vowed not to perform in West Bank settlements. The announcement singled out the bustling West Bank town of Ariel, population 17,000, where a $10 million government-funded municipal auditorium is scheduled to open in November. The auditorium’s schedule for the opening season was published August 25, featuring appearances by major repertory theater companies including Habimah and the Cameri. In response, two actors announced on August 26 that they would not participate.”


OK answer here … fire the actors … black list them … they are too stupid to be role models for a prosperous nation.

“Culture Minister Limor Livnat, who oversees theater subsidies, said the actors are “dividing Israeli society and spreading hate.” Other Likud lawmakers are demanding that funds be cut to any theater that employs actors who refuse to perform.”

Yep!  Obviously there are intelligent people in the Israeli government …”  And get this, “…  the actors could even be charged under a pending Knesset bill that outlaws public support for boycotts against Israel.”  If the bill is enacted in a timely fashion.  Note that the Bill, like the GOP & Arizona anti-immigration actions, is the product of idiots which will ultimately affect their fellow idiots.

Bottom line, those who wish to hurt themselves will always achieve their goal.  That they hurt innocents as well is a trademark of their stupidity and disrespect for their creator (who they generally, often universally, assert to be supporting).  We do not do to another what we would find hateful if done to us.  Simple rule – seldom followed by either Palestinians or Republicans.
