DOES RICK PERRY HAVE A PERFORMANCE PROBLEM?

September 28, 2011Liberals, whose entire political strategy is the smoke and mirrors of showbiz, have concluded that Rick Perry put in a poor performance at last week’s Republican debate and has got to step up his debating technique to get back in the game.
Actually, it wasn’t Perry’s “performance” that was a problem. It was his “answers.”
No fancy wordsmithery is going to get Perry out of supporting in-state tuition for illegal aliens. (Although I did think it was nice that he gave his answer in Spanish.)
We are not Democrats.
We already had a Republican president and both political parties try to foist amnesty on us. The country erupted in rage, forced Congress to withdraw Bush’s “comprehensive immigration reform” and rewarded Bush with a humiliating defeat in the 2006 midterm elections.
It wasn’t Perry’s delivery; it was his policy that Republicans — and apparently a lot of Democrats and independents — don’t like. Hispanic citizens who have undergone the arduous process of becoming citizens the legal way aren’t crazy about the idea either.
When the audience booed Perry, it wasn’t booing a former Air Force captain. It was booing in-state tuition for illegal aliens. CONT’D HERE

Generosity vs. responsibility
September 26th, 2011

Check out this letter to the editor in the NY Times (via Keith Burgess-Jackson):

We can be either a generous society or a responsible society, but not both. If we are generous, we will undermine responsibility, no matter how much social democrats and progressives try to engineer social behavior.

A responsible society basically asks people to take care of themselves; it is not kind, but such a society can sustain itself and grow. A generous society cannot maintain itself and still be free. The generosity will increasingly be paid for by more and more intrusive government control of all social behavior.

Therefore, I believe we must emphasize being a responsible society and build only that generous component—welfare and charity—that will not undermine responsibility.

The competition for quality men – Why May /December romances are on the rise.

My brain is hardwired to process numbers, facts and data…. and rarely, (if ever) allows itself to drift into the “land of snake oil, and make believe” …or what most pople refer too as the “less exact sciences”. In the family of ‘guesswork sciences’ you will find psychology, sociology, and generally any area of study that isn’t capable of generating one correct provable answer to a question. Before you say it…Yes, I do have a degree in economics which I agree falls under the heading of “guesswork science” but in my defense, my real interest has always been on the quantitative side of that discipline (and never the theoretical side). It’s what I talk about, it’s what I blog about, it’s what I do for a living, and when I dream at night … my dreams follow the exact same pattern.

Looking back, I can truthfully say that I have only cared about why people do the things they do, act the way they act, like the things they like, or respond to things the way they do… just long enough to figure out how to construct a statistical model able to accurately predict those choices within an acceptable margin or error.

That all changed last Sunday when I met up the group of friends I ski with every winter as we hunkered down during a wonderful afternoon brunch to try and map out our travel plans for this winter. As we sat talking two of my girlfriends who are both about my age (25/26) were bringing me up to speed with their love lives and other pertinent red hot gossip. In prior years it had become customary for my single girlfriends to complain about who they were seeing and to bemoan the critical shortage of high quality available men. As I began to fortify myself with a third glass of wine … they got excited looks on their faces and thanked me for ‘breaking the age barrier’. You see, last winter during one of those nights of endless drinking and talking about our feelings (because that’s what we do you know) the topic had gotten around to all of the May/December romances that kept cropping up among the group of girls we had attended boarding school together with. I had told them I was dating an older guy because I was incredibly attracted to them and always had been. Other friends of mine who were there that night (including one of the girls at brunch) admitted to also preferring older guys but hadn’t acted on their attraction due to concerns over what people would think and how their friends and family would react. As we continued to talk (mostly about people who weren’t there) I started to realize that this attraction to men 15-20 years older than we were was not some freak isolated thing. What I was witnessing among my own friends was a trend that was becoming increasingly popular across most of the U.S. What are the causes of this trend? Glad you asked… because now I am going to tell you.

The forces behind this trend are the same forces that are behind many of todays other relationship trends … Selfish women, no fault divorce, the Violence Against Women Act, corrupt family courts and laws in every state that have been used for the last 40 years to keep the children of divorced parents from having a strong male role model in their lives and a loving and meaningful relationship with their fathers. Consider the following theory: Today over 75% of divorces are instituted by the wife, the reasons most give outside of the court documents which all usually cite ‘irreconcilable differences’ is general unhappiness, infidelity (study after study have detrermined that women cheat much more often than men do), and ‘I just don’t love him anymore and I don’t want to waste my life in a loveless marriage’.

So here is the logic behind my thinking. Man and woman fall in love and get married…things are great … they have 2 1/2 kids, buy a house, and start to raise their family. As the children start to grow and their demands for time and attention begin to crowd out the parents time for eachother a general sense of “is this it? “is this my life?”, followed soon thereafter by “But I’m not happy/in love/ content” . Rather than accept responsibility for her own happiness and make the effort to shock some life into the marriage she starts to lookat him as the source of all of her negative feelings and unhappiness. Someone once write that “women want prince charming and men just want a wife”. This is when she will cheat if she is going too (from what I read from Dr. Laura, if a man is going to cheat it will generally be earlier in the marriage right after having babies) … the marriage becomes so damaged that she is convinced it couldn’t be fixed if she wanted it too … which she doesn’t. Eventually a divorce is filed by the wife …and her attorney becomes her advocate and what was once a loving happy couple who had at one time dedicated their lives to eachother …forever become enemy combatants hell bent on getting what they can. AUTHORS NOTE: All divorces aren’t this way and no two are exactly alike this is just one example out of millions that demonstrate how we get from point A all the way to point C so please don’t write me emails saying “my husband drank and beat me up” or any other exception to what i am saying because I am admitting they exist. Thank you!

Only one parent can have primary custody of the children and while those numbers are evolving the wife is awarded custody much more often than the husband. That usually mean the husband is the party paying child support to the wife. It’s true that many dead beat fathers exist but there are many many more fathers who aren’t. It is an accepted fact that children do better and are more likely to become well adjusted adults when they are raised in a family with a father and a mother who are in a comitted and loving relationship. Children need BOTH parents in their lives even if, as I discovered, the wife would really prefer it if her ex would suddenly transform himself into a deaf and mute ATM machine because anything less interferes with her plans for herself. Along the way in this process a large percentage of women reach into their arsenal and pull out the ex-husband/father killer … a.k.a. the Violence Against Women Act or just “VAWA”. This is the body of legislation that brought about the overuse and abuse of restraining orders and have been responsible for jailing more husbands/fathers than any other single piece of legislation in our history. If a woman says her ex ‘frighhtens her’ and ‘yells and curses’ at her then he is a target for one of these no contact orders. These orders are rubber stamped by judges and state that the husband cannot contact the wife in anyway or he will be arrested and thrown in jail and should this happen 2 times then the 3rd time it becomes a felony. What these orders don’t say is the woman is not allowed to contact the man… and therein lies the problem. The way i have seen women use these orders to gain leverage and compliance with their demands is shameful. If the wife isn’t succesful in eliminating the father from their childrens lives in the divorce court then she can do it more quickly and less expensively through VAWA with the net result being : We have an entire generation of children who are being raised by 1 parent (usually the mother) and the system that gave us no fault divorce to make the destruction of families so much easier is also the system that restricts millions of fathers from taking an active and loving role in their childrens lives. The first wave of females who were actively denied (or didn’t have) a positive male role model as they were growing up are people my age … and regardless if the lack of a father or loving father figure was due to situations like the one decribed above or due to any other reason (my girlfriends and I grew up in a boarding school away from our homes and our fathers) doesn’t matter …the damage is done when there aren’t both parents involved in their lives.

Other blowback from actions of the no fault divorce/VAWA abusing women from 25 years ago this: (try to appreciate the irony here please) By selfishly eliminating or curtailing the presence of the fathers in their childrens lives has brought about this entire 1st generation of girls who are in their mid to late 20’s who find themselves attracted to men 15-20 years their senior … those mothers who nurtured this abhorent conduct now find themselves competing with their daughters for the same 40 something men … who do you suppose has been winning that battle?

Check out this book which explores this issue in more depth but reaches the sam conclusions:

A protester (C) against U.S. President Barack Obama is escorted by Secret Service after shouting at him during an election campaign rally at the House of Blues in Los Angeles, September 26, 2011. (REUTERS/Jason Reed)

A heckler started screaming at Obama as he spoke at a fundraiser tonight. The man called Obama the antichrist as he was being dragged from the front row of the event.
Politico reported, via Free Republic:

A heckler shouting about Jesus Christ interrupted President Barack Obama at a fundraiser before security dragged him out. It happened at the House of Blues in Los Angeles on Monday night.

The man positioned himself up in front of the stage and started shouting loudly right after Obama started talking. The heckler proclaimed that Jesus Christ is God and a Christian God.
Obama stopped talking. Then after a moment the crowd started chanting “Four more years! Four more years!” and drowned out the heckler.
As he was taken out by security the man called out that Obama is an antichrist.
Later, another, more-friendly heckler shouted out, “Don’t forget medical marijuana!” Obama responded: “Thank you for that.”

My personal suspicions about the alleged execution of Osama Bin laden and the susequent accidental deaths of those members of SEAL Team 6 who participated in the OBL operation caused me to remember some of the other suspicious deaths by murder of other people Obama was once very very close too. Strangely, all of these other people had one thing in common…they possessed information which could have derailed Obama’s Presidntial aspirations, namely Donald Young, Larry Bland and Nate Spencer all former gay lovers of Obama’s, all members of Trinity Church in Chicago, and within 1 month of eachother, when the Democratic convention was in full swing ….
All Dead!

I don’t believe in coincidence especially when it keeps recurring like a broken record … everyone who has been unlucky enough to have been in a position to know something about Obama that could effect his campaign or his presidency has the misfortune of winding up dead. There are the 3 ex gay lovers mentioned above:

There was his grandmother “Toots” who was resolute in her convictions and memory that BHO was born in Kenya… who couldn’t be silenced any other way.

Then there were those brave Navy SEALS (Team 6) who Obama knew possessed too much honor and integrity to allow themselves to stay silent about what really happened, or didn’t happen during the raid to execute OBL who had died almost 10 years before.

I guess we could call all of these coincidences: “Clinton Luck”…but only if our name was BHO.


Of course, as a die hard conspiracy nut who has less than zero trust of our government let’s take another walk down memory lane and see if there is anything new about the execution of Osama bin Laden OR Obama’s execution of Navy SEAL Team 6…Here are a few of the comments making their way up and down the beltway:

“I’ve had some direct and indirect business dealings with some of the military, including SEAL team six (Just a brief contact). If there are any SEALs reading this who wish to correct my next statement, please feel free. I do not ever recall hearing of an active SEAL deployment that included third country national “tag alongs.” Even in cases of joint special forces action, we send in our guys and they send in their guys–no mixing as this would certainly screw up unit cohesion. Highly trained SEALS fighting alongside Afghan “commandos”—just ain’t happenin’.”

“The rescue team had
completed the mission, subduing the attackers who had the Rangers pinned down, and were departing in their Chinook helicopter when the aircraft was apparently hit, one of the officials said.”

“Supposedly, the helicopter was downed by an RPG. An RPG is a relatively short range shoulder fired anti-tank weapon. It’s warhead is designed to penetrate armor. It would have been a lucky shot to hit a moving helicopter with an RPG and even if that was the case the chopper would be at low altitude with some survivors expected—even if they were later killed in ground action by their attackers. News reports indicate that the recovered remains were all incenerated, which could be a bit odd under the circumstances”

At least there was no requirement that they be buried at sea almost instantly…

“Bin Laden had been on dialysis BEFORE 9/11. Dialysis is difficult enough for people in first world countries who can have it done in outstanding facilities. Bin Laden was having it done either in caves or in homes post 9/11. People in renal failure having dialysis done in fricking caves do NOT live for ten more years. Period. There was no dialysis equipment found in the compound the SEALS raided on May 2. Of course there wasn’t. Bin Laden wasn’t in that compound because Bin Laden has been dead for years” (Since 2001/2 to be more specific)

“This is why the “body” was declared “positively identified” faster than any known DNA testing process in existence – and this DNA testing was carried out not in a lab mind you, but inside Chinook and/or V-22 Osprey helos en route to the USS Carl Vinson. The body was then dumped into the Indian Ocean in a mad dash to ensure that “burial” took place within 24 hours of death in order to “honor” musloid burial traditions. Not a single picture of the so-called “Bin Laden corpse” has ever been released – and never will.”

“As Dr. Paul Craig Roberts stated:
“In the immediate aftermath of bin Laden’s alleged murder by the SEALs, Pakistani TV interviewed the next door neighbor to bin Laden’s alleged compound. Someone supplied the video with an English translation running at the bottom of the video. According to the translation, the next door neighbor, Mr. Bashir, said that he watched the entire operation from the roof of his house. There were 3 helicopters. Only 1 landed. About a dozen men got out and entered the house. They shortly returned and boarded the helicopter. When the helicopter lifted off it exploded, killing all aboard. Mr. Bashir reports seeing bodies and pieces of bodies all over.
The US government acknowledges that it lost a helicopter, but claims no one was hurt. Obviously, as there were no further landings, if everyone was killed as Mr. Bashir reports, there was no body to be dumped into the ocean.”

Then this:
This is about how to brainwash a nation. How can one believe anything spewed from the US media/ gov? Recall Pat Tillman; killed by his own Army Rangers, then the cover up and McChrystal’s approval for the Silver Star Award. All this dribble of the killing of OBL and dumping his body in the sea and now the team that killed him is dead. Really? Come on. Remember Jessica Lynch? One truth you can be sure of is the loss of your 4th amendment rights.
These Americans are casualties in a game, one like 9/11, sacrificial pawns, like Britain’s 7/7, all lies, all theatre, all evil”

Back at work

Ever since I hit the ground over here, all of the talk has been about the rumors of an imminent Greek defaut …first it was supposed to happen over the weekend and now it’s been pushed out as far as a week…a month …or?? (Greece denies this BTW)

Here is what I do know: Greece failed to “place’ their short term bill rollover…which is the markets way of sounding the final buzzer, or the fat lady singing… or both. When the market loses confidence in Greece’s short term paper it only follows that it has no confidence in the euro either.
Consider the following:
Germany’s DAX market hit A 5 yr low last week which generated reports out of Germany that they are busy working on plans to recapitalize their banks IF Greece defaults… hmmmm. Could it be, as I, and everyone else suspects, that German (and French and other) banks are technically insolvent due to carrying all of the Greek bonds they currently hold at values WAY over their actual value in the market?…Think about it: If the Greek bonds have been properly marked to the market (at roughly 50% of their face value) then there would be no urgent need for any banks to recpaitalize …would there?
Sadly, this latest revelation from Germany also means that their claims last week of their banks being adequetly capitalized was a lie?
Do you really think this cancer is confined only to the EU?
Do you really believe anything that comes out of our government (or any government) anymore?

Let’s look at what other notable occurrences have been going on at the same time this drama has been unfolding in the EU.

Well, for starters, there has been a stampede of money leaving the Euro and heading to Japan and the perceived safety of the Yen. Why not the USD? lol! For the last 3 years there has been “outlier talk” making the rounds about the euro going to par (to the USD) …should this occur then it would most certainly be the end of the union and it would signal the start of the attack on the USD.

“If you have the emergence of national European currencies as a result of the failure of the union, the mirror image strength of the dollar would instantaneously disappear. Credit default swaps would turn their vengeance on the dollar. The Drachma would be incinerated. The Swiss and DM would be the stronger units.
If the EU fails so does the USDX. With no mirror image to hold up the dollar artificially, the US dollar will fall faster than Greece’s credit”
What that means is this:

The USDX would be around, but no longer reactive to the euro. The euro would be replaced with the original currencies of member states in various percentages as a synthetic euro, but the demise of the euro in the USDX would be complete. Further shorting would not be met with the same reward.

“The attack of the US dollar would commence immediately”, and with that we would see the Dow lose most of it’s value followed by the utter failure of every pension fund and insurance company. This fraud has been perpetrated against us, the American taxpayers, by our own government and central bank.

This time there is no money to bail anyone out. Should thids happen the defaults will look like like dominoes falling…one after the other after the other…you want to see what too big to fail looks like when it fails …hang on! Why doesn’t anyone in our political system give a damn about the fraud and outright lies in our financial system? They know…they can’t not know! Ron Paul knows and he has known for a very long time …almost exactly as long as he has been screaming to get rid of the FED at the top of his lungs~! Why doesn’t anyone speak out against these leverage driven asset stripping games you and I and everyone else will be forced to suffer because of? Because the banks own the politicians. Since 2007 nothing has been one to cut out the underlying cancer and so far no one has gone to jail for it either.

Hasn’t anyone been wondering where all of those ‘toxic assets’ went? or how they are being valued on the books of the banks who hold them? Over 10 trillion + dollars in estimated loses on residential mortagages alone? Wile at the same time …Obama pounds on the table demanding “more stimulus” with absolutely no way to pay for it. Sheeple we are getting the chance to see our own history being played out in the EU right now… right now:

Greece Owes 367 Billion to the rest of the EU
Ireland Owes 865 Billion “
Spain Owes 1 Trillion mainly to France Britain and Germany
Italy Owes 1 Trillion mainly to France Britain and Germany
France Britain and Germany are owed and also owe staggering amounts as well…

“How can broke economies loan money to other broke economies who haven’t got any money because they cant pay back the money the 1st broke economy loaned to the other broke economy and shouldn’t have lended it to the in the first place because the broke economy can’t pay it back…” (sort of like the Abbott and Costello “Who’s on First” comedy bit”

When the problems in the USA started to crop up in 2008 (or even Greece in 2010) did our government take this warning and act on it, stop the frauds, prosecute the wrongdoers, close the insolvent banks, and force the recognition of 10 trillion+ in lost value in residential housing? Did we see bankruptcy occur for those who are in fact bankrupt? No…

Every single politician in Washington on both sides of the aisle are complicit in the theft of the collective wealth of this nation …they didn’t have the intergrity to just say no to the lure of power and money and the banksters that run them are in this to win it. CEJ
