A quick question…

17 September 2012
Let’s get out of here, Jesse! They’re onto us!

Are “Reverends” Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton still members of the democratic party? I mean, each portrays himself as some sort of Christian preacher, don’t they? Yes, yes – there’s that nagging detail that no-one has ever once been able to tell me where their churches are, or what their denominations are, but they are Christians, aren’t they? And the democrats did deny God three times during their convention, didn’t they? And they did boo God heartily after the chair ignored the, at best, deadlock and added mention of God back in, didn’t they? (Honestly, it sounded more like a majority against adding mention of God back onto their platform, but I’ll give them the benefit of a doubt. Because that’s precisely what we stupid American conservatives always seem to do…) In the face of that, how can any Christian espouse the tenets of the democratic party?! I mean, and remain faithful tho their God?

Or are their ministries simply the means  to avoid paying taxes as these race-baiting welfare pimps bilk their adherents out of millions by promulgating racism and reverse discrimination?

Who is responsible for this?!

9 July 2012
It's interesting to note the unemployment rate begins to increase in February, 2008 - when Øbama announced his candidacy...
Comparison: Unemployment rate from each year from Jan 2000 to present

Well! Now that I’m over my case of Roberts-induced depression, I see that YADNER has come out! And, with it, YAAFOTII.

I know, I know. My work in the manufacturing industry has made a fool for acronyms. Let me help you out, there: Yet Another Disappointing National Employment Report and Yet Another Admonition From Øbama To Ignore It. I’d think, by now, most of you should have been able to guess the acronym. I mean, this has happened once a month since January 2009 – that OTHER day that will live forever in infamy. With each disappointing report, we were admonished by The Øne not to make too much out of it. The same disclaimer is published at the bottom of every month’s report. Why? Because the numbers have consistently been pretty disappointing, and those that offered a glimmer of “hope” turned out to be based more on happenstance than any grand plan involved in actually steering the economy to correct its course.

I hear again and again how Øbama isn’t responsible for this economy, that he inherited it. Really? REALLY?! Take a look at the chart above. The data is the Gummint’s own unemployment  data taken from their very own Department of Labor Statistics. Pretty stark, when you look at it in this context.; the Øbama years vs the eight years of Bush – the last year of which was under a Democrat-controlled congress.  Yes, it’s a stark difference.

Because of this inconvenient truth, Øbama and his administration would rather focus on job creation than on the actual unemployment numbers. He and his minions will crow about the 12 million jobs created since the start of his administration. Remember the “jobs created or saved” mantra? That can’t be used anymore. Why? because the 12 million jobs created figure they like to bandy about is not net of the millions of jobs destroyed; it is gross. Don’t doubt it? Then ask yourself this: why haven’t the unemployment numbers improved? Why is the U6 number, which includes folks who have simply dropped out of the race, so dismal? Why have more people jumped on the disability rolls than at any other time in history?

Back to the chart. All of the red lines – the first that showed the unemployment rate begin to increase, to the group that is soaring so much higher than the remainder of the charted years – coincide with that famously Democratic-controlled congress mentioned above.

So mayber you’re right Maybe Øbama did inherit this economy. But he inherited it from Pelosi and Reid; definitely not from Bush.

A twisted view

6 June 2012

Yes, yes! Now I understand your perspective…

After the Wisconsin recall election results were reported, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who formerly gloated that the defeat of Walker was imminent, and that it would represent a referendum against conservative fiscal policy,  tweeted: “Despite the disappointing outcome, the effort sent Scott Walker a message that his brand of divisive politics is offensive & wrong.”

Really? REALLY?! The recall effort getting “owned” by Walker sent him a message that what he was doing in the office of Governor was somehow wrong? By winning the election? Huh. I don’t get it. But, too, I never realized Florida was on another planet.

The message the recall sent, as I read it, is that the unions no longer have free reign over the Wisconsin economy. The message, as I read it, was that, even with the traditional widespread liberal cheating at the polls (things like, oh, I don’t know – say, things like the  rumored busloads shipped in from Detroit by the, ahem, “union at the Chrysler plant” to vote for Barrett…), conservatism won the day. The message, as I read it, is that liberalism is not desirable once its destructive nature is realized.

Oddly, I don’t find Walker’s “brand of politics” anywhere near as offensive nor divisive – particularly in terms of race and class –  as I see those of the likes of the mainstream media, Øbama, Reid, Pelosi and, yes: that strange visitor from another planet, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.  But, then: I’m a natural-born  citizen. Of earth…

7 June 2012 Update: That other strange visitor from another planet, internet inventor Al Gore, voiced his agreement with Wasserman Schultz’s opinion on his pet network’s Viewpoint “news” show. I guess Tennessee must be in a similar orbit to that of Florida. Well, really: we’ve known that all along, haven’t we?
