Brain-Lock inside the Beltway
National Review Online, by Jonah Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/30/2012 5:17:35 AM

It’s at times like this I’m ashamed to admit I live inside the Beltway. Well, that’s probably not specific enough, since I’m usually ashamed to admit I live inside the Beltway. Still, the second you try to explain the stupidity of this “fiscal cliff” fiasco to a normal person, it makes William F. Buckley’s famous declaration that he’d rather be governed by the first few hundred people listed in the Boston phone book than by the faculty of Harvard seem all the more reasonable. While there are some responsible politicians and policymakers in Washington,

Short term plan - the few tea party republicans who are in - fight tooth and nail.

Long term - new party. Gotta do it. This is ridiculous.

The short term high is revenge against the GOP and getting elected again. The pain down the road will be felt by other people, some still in kindergarten, so they do not care.

This hasn´t been about what´s good for the country for a very long time.

Third party talk is unserious. There are already alternate parties all over the place. Those who yearn for something other than Dem or Repub surely can match up with one of those. For the rest of us, we will need to work from within and, no, there is no magical fairy dust that will instantly transform us.

When you are forced to live by the policies that are enacted by corrupt politicians in DC, this is what you get. The realization has set in that neither party wants to fix what they have destroyed.

The progs will fight tooth and nail by any means necessary to achieve their goals while the Republicans stand by and wring their hands. Here´s a novel idea, how about putting your political careers on the line for once in your miserable lives, grow a spine and do what is right for this country.

No, the party is over!!!

THERE IS NO SOLUTION TO A PONZI SScheme, other than to have it collapse sooner rather than later.

The country is bankrupt, with no possibility of ever paying its debt!

Hopefully, the bankruptcy will force the liquidation of government assets, and we will be on the road to prosperity with all of those national forests, and oil and coal reserves, back in the hands of the people.

The third leg of this argument is that the rich didn´t get rich being stupid. If the Feds raise the rates, the wealth will flee the country and the good old middle class will be left footing the bill - just like we always have. And Obama does have a plan. Raise taxes and redistribute the money. That has been the plan from day one.

Could it be that it has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt to the republicans that the democrats are hell bent on destroying America?

If that has happened, Obama is going to see "trouble" on a scale that he never anticipated. Pass the popcorn.

Not until the demorats in Washington DC see obama for what he truly is -- will DC do what´s best for the country.

For now -- I -- work locally and give no allegiance to obama and his thugs.

I´m moving from Illinois as fast as I can. The governor just gave driving priviledges to illegals. OMG -- my poor city.....he´s working on 2014´s voting demographics already. Never let a crisis go to waste -- our mayor says....

#4, it´s quite clear the Republican Party is going to continue to accept both debt limit increases, spending increases, and tax increases. So anyone who wants something different is " unserious"? Get serious.

Whatever it is that infects the Republican Party does not seem to be curable. It´s in a death spiral and those of us who are indeed serious want a real party with a real commitment to solve the mess that´s been forced upon us.

I am waiting for someone perhaps a fellow L-dotter who possesses a legal mindset to draft a simple Constitutional Amendment. Keypoints are as follows:

1) As it was not the intentions of the founders that Congress should become a career, all congressional defined benefit pension plans are hereby revoked.

2) As it was not the intention that Members of Congress should be exempt from the laws that they enact, any act of congress will be enforcible on all citizens including Members of Congress and all Federal
Employees. (If it is a crime to lie to a Federal Agent, it should also be illegal for a Federal Agent to lie to you)

3) Any law previously passed wherein Congress exempted themselves from enforcement or obligations is hereby declared Null and Void. All such laws shall be expunged fro the United States Code.

#12, no one is stopping you from starting yet another party. I think #4´s point was that there are already many to choose from. None of them are a perfect fit? Then, you have a lot of work ahead of you. Remember Ross Perot? With all that money and all those fans, he still couldn´t get on all 50 ballots as an Independent Party candidate.

Quicker and easier to work from inside your party of choice. Begin at your local level and work toward the top. It can be done. It must be done.

During the GOP primary, I was asked to point out a instance when Mitt Romney lied. I quoted a Romney campaign ad In which Mitt said that he balanced the Massachusetts budget "without raising taxes" and that later on he "cut taxes." As a factual matter, only one of these could be true. Governor Romney did not raise tax rates, but he did increase taxes by eliminating "loopholes" (i.e. making someone pay more taxes). Later, Mitt did not lower tax rates, but he did offer offer more exemptions (i.e. opening more loopholes). So one of Mitt´s statements had to be false. Jonah agrees: "If I make the same amount of money as I did last year but pay more in taxes, then my taxes have gone up. If I pay less, my taxes have gone down. Whether the numbers moved this way or that because of closed loopholes or rejiggered tax rates, the result for me is the same."

I point all this out because, on a thread yesterday, the OP requested an example of Mitt Romney lying during the primary. QED.

I think the reference from a yesterday thread was to demonstrate an instance of Romney "lying and smearing" another candidate. There are attempts to tie Governor Romney to such stuff, but they mostly rely on assumption.

It seems like many people don´t think that anything wrong could happen to the country, it will always be anything you want it to be. They are sadly delusional, we will not always be a free people, we will not be fiscally sound and dreams will always be dreams because due to the state the country is in you cannot fulfill your dreams no matter how many flowery speeches are given by politicians. What is happening to the country is sad and not what the founding fathers envisioned.

Fauxbama has no plan. He has never had a plan beyond being elected and flying on Air Force One. So--apres him the deluge and let his idiot supporters feel the pain even more intensely. We´ll all feel it, but at least those with a more-or-less functioning central nervous system will have the satisfaction of watching his useful idiots come to the conclusion that their dreamboat was on a lost voyage to nowhere.

Pat Buchanan´s observation that he would rather be governed by the first few hundred people in the Boston phone book than the Harvard faculty has to change as both groups are equally nuts. That´s how we got to this nightmare. What part of economic decline didn´t the American voters get and what part did they think would get better with ObamaII?

The republicans don´t have that much power, the people spoke, they elected Obama and added two more dems to the senate. If you want someone to be mad at, how about all the conservatives that stayed home, sucked their thumbs and sulked. It´s easier to blame the beltway than our own pathetic coalition.

Best I can tell, not a single dim´o´rat is concerned about the debt or the deficit or the effect of high taxes.

Whe they speak of regulation and investment, they are never concerned that it be good regulation or good investment.

Did 911 result in an awakening of the dangers some groups present to us? Not for long. The dims viewed it as a political issue to demgog about. 911 is a distant memory, barely remembered by these people- assuming they do not think the US got what it deserved.

They don´t see a debt problem. They look around and everything is fine just like it was yesterday.

I don´t see how you run a complex organization along populist lines with this populace.

Third Party? No chance. As others say, they already exist yet make no progress. The reasons are understood but there seems to be no remedy.

All politicians lie. Or their opponents will be able to convince you of that regarding some matter or another. Often the allegation is less fact than interpretation.

I advise looking at the arc of a candidates life rather than a specific instance or allegation. (Of course sometimes a single instance will reveal so much that it must disqualify the candidate.)

Perspective. Realize that the last few years have been wonderful for Washington D.C. There is more spending, more power, more employees, and raises and benefits.

It is not an accident that the DC metropolitan area is the richest in America. And the gap continues to grow.

Realize. Washington is not helping you.It could care less about that. It is helping itself and sees no reason at all to change anything.

The Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:55:20 PM     Post Reply
President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“Am I going to be an outcast?” A friend, who recently moved to an upscale neighborhood in Madison, Wis., called me last week to ask if she would be able to make mommy friends if she continued feeding her children — gasp! — non-organic food.

One told the other that there, for the first time, her toddler was given Jif peanut butter. He loved it. Prior to that he had only had Whole Foods peanut butter, which (one might

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Reflecting on Kelo nine years later

It’s been nine years since the Supreme Court, expressing their decision in the writings of John Paul Stevens, decided to fundamentally change the Takings Clause of the constitution in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. On this auspicious anniversary, a diarist at Redstate decides to take a fresh look at how wonderfully that exercise in freedom worked out for the citizens, and what they received in exchange for their liberties. The Kelo ruling was controversial and precedent-setting because, under eminent domain, the government may seize the property of a private citizen when it’s deemed necessary for public use

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags. The walkie-talkies worn on the hips of tournament personnel crackled to life: "Texas Wesleyan has entered the building." The opposing teams,?most of whom brought only a handful of players, some in a mishmash of college sweatshirts,?stopped to watch in awe and dread. "We are the New York Yankees of table tennis," said Texas Wesleyan University Coach Jasna Rather. "Everybody hates our guts."

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery."

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent
