Supreme Court declines to act.

From Arutz Sheva Tuesday, Mar 27 '12, Nisan 4, 5772

“The US Supreme Court has returned to the lower court a decision whether Menachem Binyamin Zivotofsky's passport can list “Jerusalem, Israel' as his place of birth.”

Seems like a simple matter doesn’t it?  Can a man place on his passport, in the space required, that all applicants state it, the place of his birth?  But it appears that the question is too complicated for the Judiciary to handle – which raises questions as to their ability to handle more complicated questions.  As the article notes:

“The case has made its way all the way through the entire United States court system, from the district court, through the court of appeals, and up to the highest court in the land.”

“But on Monday, March 26, Supreme Court justices sidestepped the delicate issue of Menachem Zivotofsky v. Hillary Clinton, as had all the adjudicators before them.”

Specifically,  the justices noted, “Congress enacted a statue providing that Americans born in Jerusalem may elect to have “Israel” listed as the place of birth on their passports. The State Department declined to follow that law, …”

OK so we have the State Department wasting tax payer money challenging a Federal law in the courts – while violating it… because they don’t feel like acknowledging the fact that Jerusalem is part of Israel.  OK, so it might have once been a shared city.

But Congress said OK – the American People said OK – the President signed it into law.  So the Executive also said OK.  But the article said STATE had cited “ its longstanding policy of not taking a position on the political status of Jerusalem. When sued by an American who invoked that statute, the Secretary of State argued that the courts lacked authority to decide the case because it presented a political question.”  and the Court of Appeals said OK.

So politics trumps LAW … and we are to believe the policy of an agency overrides the will of both the President and Congress.  Thus the nation is being run by its agencies – without any regard for the laws enacted by Congress and approved by the Chief Executive. 

“The family, noted the Court, did not ask for a determination of whether Jerusalem is the capital of the State of Israel. Rather, the case presented is simply an intention to determine whether they have the right under the law to record Jerusalem, Israel on their son's passport as his place of birth.”

The Basis of the legal debate: “At least since Marbury v. Madison, 1 Cranch 137 (1803), we have recognized that when an Act of Congress is alleged to conflict with the Constitution, “[i]t is emphatically the province and duty of the judicial department to say what the law is.”

That duty will sometimes involve the “[r]esolution of litigation challenging the constitutional authority of one of the three branches,” but courts cannot avoid their responsibility merely “because the issues have political implications.”

The justices then bluntly spelled out for their colleagues in the lower courts what is next to be done:

“In this case, determining the constitutionality … involves deciding whether the statute impermissibly intrudes upon Presidential powers under the Constitution.

GEE now here is the idiocy which has gotten us into the current recession and threatens to destroy the nation!  The President signed the law!  Presidential Powers were exercised in allowing the enactment into law.  Did Congress bypass the Executive and direct an action by the State Department, or did they enact a law which the President – the Chief Executive and boss of the State Department – approved?  That seems to be the only question.

Since the President approve the statute, Hilary Clinton is engaged in an act of TREASON!  She is usurping the powers of Congress and the Chief Executive to exert the right of a bureaucrat to say what is and is not LAW – There can no be, nor should there be, anything unconstitutional in the passage of a law which an appointed bureaucrat feels politically or otherwise complicates their job.

If you are born in Jerusalem you are born in Israel – unless State want to argue who had jurisdiction on the specific day, time and specific coordinates (both latitude and longitude to the exact square foot) of the birth.  If the birth was recognized as a birth IN ISRAEL – in the absence of another authority in the court asserting the individual is a citizen of their nation – Hilary is engaged in TREASON by attempting to assert bureaucratic whims over enacted law.


It is why Hilary could never have been President and we should even question if she is a Democrat.

She is looking very Republican on this matter.

p/e m/o chart


M/O ratio

The M/O Ratio is mentioned in an article which appeared in the ECONOMIST on Mar 15th 2012:

“Financial markets This old stock market”

The M/O ratio is a ratio of age groups 40 to 49 to those age 60 to 69.  For me, it represents my oldest son and myself.  It seems the the M/O ratio has a direct correlation to Stock price/earnings ratios.  The M/O seems to indicate that, for the next three years we are in for a bear market.  However, some time around 2015 thins should begin to change .. the mark will bottom .. hold there for approximately three years and then begin to recover – until it enters a bull market phase about seven years from now.

In terms of prophecies (which you should begin hearing a lot about) the 2012 to 2015 period corresponds to many … some of which I will be discussing in detail in the 3rd book of the “Grandpa Was A Deity” Trilogy -- “St. Paul’s Joke”.

Those who have already read “Grandpa Was A Deity” should be familiar with the basics of this fact driven trilogy.  “Grandpa Was A Deity” is an overview of of all three volumes as derived from the primary topic of DNA genealogy for what is basically an Indo-European genetic line … which some would say is the true Aryan.  Of course, neo-Nazis types would want to refute it with rage and violence – the primary reason being that the groups which carry the Aryan DNA are the Brahmin, Ashkenazi-Levites and Scandinavians … not the Germanic Hitler types, or Southern Baptist drunks normally associated with the Aryan Race label.

That scientific reality has created, or provided, an interesting explanation for why Hitler’s Germany was defeated:  Hitler defined the Aryan as the Master Race, and then proceeded to attack the true historic Aryan people – the Levites and Gypsies.

However … the topic today is the M/O ratio and the effect it will have on the Baby Boom generation.  If the ratio holds – as it appears to have over the past fifty-three charted years – that the baby boom will enjoy a massive buyers benefit over the next three years.  They will retire in twenty years with a portfolio that will outpace inflation by record amounts.

Of course, the majority will delay their purchases for five years to a decade.  Be interesting to see how they do.

Of course there is a secondary problem: If we do not address the federal deficit and tax income over $1 million – or properly tax incomes – the nation will collapse.  The world economy will follow.  But then, there are always the predictions.  The most interesting being an Islamic attack on the Vatican – the end of Catholicism, and possibly Christianity.

Remember, the Republican Party is dedicated to producing:


It will be decided in November – when Americans decide if they want to commit suicide and Romney becomes president.  If they duck that bullet, they will again make the same decision in 2016.  Who the choices will be is unknown, but the overall choice will remain the same – the party of borrow to feed the rich and amass deficits that double over their term in the Whitehouse (as was done under Reagan, Bush and Bush) … or the party that supports the health and wellbeing of the average person, while bring the budget into surplus (as they did under Clinton).


Your can guess how I’m betting

Voter idiocy?

Disapproval of President Obama's handling of the economy is heading higher — alongside gasoline prices — a record number of Americans now give the president "strongly" negative reviews on the 2012 presidential campaign's most important issue.

People have decided to take a pessimistic view of Obama's performance on the economy — and on the federal budget deficit.  They seem to believe the GOP – under Bush – had nothing to do with the situation.  Moreover, they forget that the GOP is in the oil business … again, look at the Bush family and the people associated with their administrations.

Steady employment increase, numerous other signs of an Obama administration that has managed to overcome Republican economic incompetence, goes unnoticed.

Similarly, the public seems to ignore demographic reality – Baby Boomers are retiring and we are in an economic transition period … repeats of GOP policies from Reagan, Bush and Bush, would mean the destruction of this nation and World War Three.

Rising gas prices are a function of the stupidity demonstrated by Reagan removing – albeit symbolic – the solar collectors from the Carter White House.  If the GOP has its way, we will be drained of all petroleum reserves, become totally dependant on the Islamic nations, and be militaristically impotent.  It would only take a two term President and Congress controlled by the current Republican leadership … with their idiotic policies.

But … they would need to put up a decent candidate.  They know, as well as I, that they need to lose this election in order to claim an eight year term four years from now.  They MUST win then – if they are to succeed in destroying the nation.


its all in the timing, and reliance on the stupidity of the general public.

Speak from thy own experience

"Speak from thy own experiences. though you won't be admired, you'll seldom be wrong."

I had written that quote on the back of a portrait I painted in 1964.  I have no idea where I found it.  But it was the sixties and you could find such sayings everywhere.  At the time, I was getting involved with artists and filmmakers – but you can read some of that in GRANDPA WAS A DEITY … I am curious as to the original source.

Limbaugh - or porker hoof-in-mouth

Rush speak: “I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress. I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities.”

If we assume that the issue of Birth Control constitutes a basic form of “personal sexual recreational activity” exempt from government subsidy, than we should ensure that no personal recreational activities are subsidized.  Business travel (aside from direct transportation expenses), business at country clubs, restaurants or business activity not conducted at a primary place of business should no longer be tax deductible -- we all know that these are recreation or personal entertainment expenses. WOOPS Rush baby just opened an obvious can of worms that his backers live on.

But Rush is an idiot and hypocrite – making money off bigger idiots.

No matter … we deserve the people we get.  And it would appear we deserve,  pill-popping  Rush-baby types.  He is, after all, typical of GOP leadership – even though he is only their attack puppy.


occasionally, a person at a time.
