Post-US world born in Phnom Penh
Asia Times, by Spengler

Original Article

Posted By:rolanddd, 11/29/2012 9:06:06 PM

It is symptomatic of the national condition of the United States that the worst humiliation ever suffered by it as a nation, and by a US president personally, passed almost without comment last week. I refer to the November 20 announcement at a summit meeting in Phnom Penh that 15 Asian nations, comprising half the world´s population, would form a Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership excluding the United States.

Comments:
Even after Obama is gone the people that elected him will remain.The U.S. will be a little smaller every year and the foreign media will increasingly be the only reliable source of information and perspective.

America as we know it died on January 20, 2009.

America as I knew it died when Mario Savio, in 1963, climbed on a truck bed with a megaphone and blasted the world with obscenities. We never recovered and all I have left of that once decent pre-Savio America are old movies on Netflix, big bands on Pandora and a couple of old friends.

No nation will take seriously a currency that continues to be devalued by unbridled government spending tied to inflationary monetary policy by its lender of choice. The reserve currency status of the dollar will be dead by 2016. Then we will be beholden to the Communist dragon.

I would give my blood and treasure to see the makers of this nation come together, secede from the takers, and rebuild using the innovation, efficiency, and sheer kick-@55 spirit this nation still has outside the inner city entitlement waste lands and DC cesspool. Freedom is too young to die.

I remember not liking Kennedy for the Bogotá Agreement which sent my mother´s job to Mexico,

I remember not liking Nixon because my Poly-Sci professor "smelled a rat" in Edmond Muskie´s resignation and McGovern ran instead,

I remember being the only one in my peer group that distrusted Carter and wanted Ford.

I remember thinking Regan couldn´t be ´that´ conservative, as conservative as me, and win the presidency,


But loosing Australia to China in trade agreements........I do not want to remember this!

Loosely related, we need to stop IMMEDIATELY with the billions of dollars of "foreign aid" to other countries. Pakistan is no friend of ours, Egypt has been around thousands of years, they can figure things out themselves. We should wrap up Afghanistan and Iraq, with limited ongoing aid.

We´ve heard all the excuses for years, that these are "investments" that bring value to the US. No they don´t. How about we help our real friends when they have disasters, like Poland, Israel, etc. Why is there foreign aid to places like Vietnam? Do hardworking Americans even know that their money ends up in these places?

I just had the worst dream. I was standing center stage, eager to unveil my fancy new website. I pressed the button; the website crashed, and 7 billion people started laughing at me. Do you think Obama ever had that dream? Nah, neither do I. Images like that spring from an inborn sense of accountability, a drive to make good on promises and to earn genuine respect. The last time Obama sought to earn genuine respect was when he invented "roof hits" with his pot-smoking Choom Gang.

Obama: Top Tax Rate Should
Be 28% for Corporations,
40% for Small Business

The New York Times reports that President Obama is reviving an old proposal to lower the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 28 percent (and 25 percent for manufacturers). Obama´s push to lower the corporate tax rate to 28 percent comes less than a year after he raised the top individual income tax rate, paid by many small businesses, to 39.6 percent. Official portrait of Barack Obama In a speech delivered Tuesday afternoon, Obama did not explain why he thinks it´s a sound economic idea to raise the top marginal tax rate on small businesses but lower it for corporations.

Middle class still left behind in
U.S. economic recovery, data show
Washington Post, by Jim Tankersley    Original Article
Posted By: rolanddd- 7/20/2013 11:02:44 AM     Post Reply
The economic recovery of summer 2013 is playing out in an all-too-familiar way for poor and middle-class Americans: Gas prices are up, growth is slowing, and there still aren’t nearly enough new jobs to employ the almost 12 million people seeking work. An improving housing market and rising stock prices appear to have done little to increase the take-home pay of the typical U.S. worker. And while the economy continues to heal faster than that of almost any other Western nation, evidence remains strong that the recovery has done little to boost the fortunes of people in the vast economic middle.

Bottled-water purchase leads to

When a half-dozen men and a woman in street clothes closed in on University of Virginia student Elizabeth Daly, 20, she and two roommates panicked. That led to Daly spending a night and an afternoon in the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail. Her initial offense? Walking to her car with bottled water, cookie dough and ice cream just purchased from the Harris Teeter in the Barracks Road Shopping Center for a sorority benefit fundraiser.

The smearing of Rachel Jeantel
Salon, by MARY ELIZABETH WILLIAMS    Original Article
Posted By: rolanddd- 6/28/2013 8:45:14 AM     Post Reply
Rachel Jeantel is a 19-year-old Florida woman. On Facebook and Twitter, she’s been known to post photos of her nails and talk about drinking. She is also the last person to have spoken with Trayvon Martin before George Zimmerman shot him to death last year, the woman who was on the phone with him when his fateful encounter unfolded. She is known in the justice system as Witness #8 in Zimmerman’s trial. She is, in fact, the prosecution’s key witness. But you’d be forgiven if you’d gotten the impression recently that she was sitting up there to defend herself.

Russia´s new Middle Eastern role

Russia has thrown a monkey wrench into Western plans for Syria by promising to deliver its top-of-the-line S300 surface-to-air missile system to the Bashar al-Assad government. Exactly when the missiles might arrive remains unclear; the last word from Moscow is that the missiles are not yet in place, which means the matter is up for bargaining.

Watch: Rep. Trey Gowdy Gets

On Thursday, the House Oversight Committee held a hearing looking into an Inspector General´s report that found lavish spending on conferences by the IRS. As NPR´s Tamara Keith reports, Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) asked the question on a lot of people´s minds when they watched a pair of videos — one with a Star Trek theme — that cost taxpayers $50,000. (Snip) Perhaps the highlight of the hearing, however, is the dressing down that Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) gave the IRS employees and the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George.

Has Rush Limbaugh Finally

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

   

 



 
White babies just 15 months old show racial
bias when picking playmates, study found

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
