Dear Mr. President, Zero
-Sum Doesn´t Add Up

Wall Street Journal, by P.J. O´Rourke

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 12/27/2012 7:16:30 PM

Given that hypocrisy is an important part of diplomacy, and diplomacy is necessary to foreign policy, allow me to congratulate you on winning a second term. I wish I could also congratulate you on your conduct of international affairs. I do thank you for killing Osama bin Laden. It was a creditable action for which you deserve some of the credit you´ve been given. Of course the intelligence was gathered, and the mission was undertaken, by men and women who, although they answer to your command, answer to duty first. And it is difficult to imagine

I read the headline as "Dear Mr. President Zero"--that sounds much better.

This is excellent, a must read. It is clear Mr. Obama was taught the economics of a hunter/gatherer society where there is some truth to zero sum. He hasn´t a clue about wealth creation, the hallmark of American productivity and uniqueness in this world and a place where zero sum has no meaning. Until now.

Comrade ObaMao´s zero-sum is no game.

It has been more successful at its one true purpose than any foreign enemy could have ever hoped for. The premeditated and now guaranteed economic destruction of dear leader´s only stated enemy: The God fearing, Constitution loving, gun owning and largely conservative American middle class. If you live in a "Red" state or county this means you!

Comrade ObaMao´s economic terrorism has now escalated into full-blown warfare. If this country had a press instead of a propaganda ministry everyone would know this

The spectacle of ignorant voters eagerly falling for this man´s crap is saddening and exhausting. When he was first elected the blacks were literally dancing in the streets thinking they had found their Mecca and finally it would all be all about them. Only Obama doesn´t see himself as a fellow African American. He brought them higher unemployment and more government dependency then patted them on the head and told them to shut up and do what they´re told. So they did. White people found out they could take slither into the same lifestyle and there you have it. I never thought I could take pleasure in America´s undoing but until we hit bottom there is no road out of this.

I´ve been wondering what happened to P.J. O´Rourke...haven´t seen anything out of him in a while. In true O´Rourke fashion, the article is chock full of great quotes, but this one was my favorite:

Western Europe has done such a good job redistributing its assets that the European Union now has a Spanish economy, a Swedish foreign policy, an Italian army, and Irish gigolos.

Obama and his Democratic Party cronies are cynically testing the boundaries beyond which the incentives to existing Makers to expand their businesses are significantly diminished and are no longer sufficient to encourage entrepreneurs to take the risks necessary to start new businesses.

History demonstrates time and again the dismal consequences of zero-sum, redistributionist, centralized government economic dominance. It succeeds only in spreading misery and always ends badly.

Congress, the president and a few thousand powerful government bureaucrats are incapable of managing any activity remotely as complex as our economy. Centralized government control of the marketplace has never worked anyplace it has occurred.

Circumstances change with the times, but human nature does not. There are limits beyond which free men and women refuse to be beasts of burden for their government and the people voluntarily dependent on that government. It appears that limit will be reached during Obama’s second term. And as O’Rourke points out, Obama’s foreign policy will encourage hostile foreign powers to hasten our decline and expand their regional and global influence to the detriment of all mankind.

I´ve been reading Ludwig von Mises, who states that the division of labor and all that it entails is the only means for the advancement of mankind. This requires cooperation, and all that that entails. And all this means that politics should have as its aim the fostering of cooperation among citizens.

And then there´s the Dims who believe in compulsion. "Liberal" used to mean promoting policies which foster cooperation.

When I was young it used to be a common expression that "you can´t legislate morals." Now the Dims have the mob ginned up to legislate morals as a smoke screen to increase compulsion and loot the treasury.

A terrific article, but I have to say that it irritates me greatly when a noted writer/commentator just can´t bring himself to call Obama what the entire thrust of the article has conclusively proved he is...a Marxist. The truth, I suppose these days, is impolite. None dare say it, and so none dare stop him. So, politely we all go over the cliff.

This is a good article, many more like it are needed but I fear that the message of zero sum and the need for growth still do not break it down enough to reach an Obama voter. We need to point out that the hated rich will be poorer but the poor will be much poorer. One of the articles I saw here not long ago mentioned that under Obama the gap between rich and poor is widening. Another element is that Obama redistributes wealth not from rich to poor but from makers to takers. In many cases the makers are far from rich but they are making it on their own without becoming dependent on the government. They are part of the private sector and they are being impoverished to pay the bloated pensions and save the jobs of a burgeoning unproductive public sector who are usually better off! Obama is hiring hundreds of people per day in the public sector and the unemployment rate in the public sector is near zero while the unemployment rate in the private sector is really 15% or higher while Obama declares the private sector is doing just fine. We are not far from the day when two poor private sector workers will he hiring one well paid public sector person to make regulations and harass him for everything he does. On top of this he is expected to generate the wealth to look after another person who refuses to work. Clearly this cannot continue!

Ldotters know how to politely disagree when we can´t agree and I take issue with #24´s view:

"He knows exactly what he is doing, and he knows exactly what the result will be. He also knows how to format what he wants to do"

Obama knows nothing, understands nothing, plans nothing. He is a stooge, cardboard cutout, marionette, brainless mouthpiece for the communist cabal, led by Valerie Jarrett, running the WH and the country.

Jarrett tells him what to say when he opens his mouth. Sadly, she often forgets to tell him to shut it.

An excellent article from old P.J., as usual.

I have a piece of news for Obammy and his uninformed minions. You can only have America AFTER you pry it from my cold, dead hands! I don´t give a damn if it´s the 13th day of the Alamo siege --- I intended to go down swinging my musket after I run out of ammo. And just like Crockett did, I´ll blow up the entire ammunition & power dump rather than have it fall into your hands. If it´s no longer mine, it will NEVER be yours!

Where is PJ when we need him? Hiding out?
In the dark? Is he actually an elder RINO?
#21 Planetgeo is right on! Says PJ does not mention Marxism, Obama´s Communist ways
the underlying threat to all Ob destroys.
Making fun of the dictator and all of his little Commie Comrades is one way to get a lot of attention and to attack dictatorship.
PJ can lead the way if he is not drug or alcohol debilitated, if he´s ready to come out of the closet and play. He´s a natural leader, a fill-in for HL Mencken, if he´d just come out. He´s not even a regular in the really long Drudge list of columnists.
Making pie-in-the-face, Keystone Kops, fun of this desparate Zero Sum Commie bunch, is what we all need on a daily basis. The TV Diane Sawyers propaganize us on a daily basis. She and all the other Commie TV NewsLiars need humorous insults hearled at them every day.....just to stay even. Communist Hollywood will not make fun of its own collectivist leaders, so it´s up to comedy veterans like PJ to get out there daily. PJ: Come Back Out And Play !

Historically have loved PJ, but in a world where powerful interests have a choke hold on the money via lower interest that is *not* trickling down to small business, so that these corporate thugs might ´make more pizzas´ in freaking China, this philosophy is outdated.

Beyond that, it comes dangerously close to New Age "the Secret" Thinking, which is complete bs.

Which is not to say Obama´s acceptance and perpetuation of that situation isn´t wholly depressing - because it is.

PJ is certainly right about the perils of redistributionist policies, both within our country and from us to the rest of the world (it never goes the other way).

But his first 3 points about the Taliban, Iraq, and the EU suggest he doesn´t understand that really curtailing the gifts from the U.S. taxpayer to the world should also encompass military excursions that are of evident worth to other countries and limited worth to us.

We should stop intervening in religious and tribal wars, and we should stop financing the defense of European nations, Japan and S. Korea. It is time to let other cultures solve their problems within the context of their own cultures, instead of trying to bribe everyone into acting like Americans.

What we must do is retrench, stop making international donations,and be a shining example of the glories of freedom and capitalism, for other countries to emulate as they wish. Of course, this is impossible while Obama and the Democrats have their boots on our necks.

They say it´s the sincerest form of flattery. At a press conference yesterday President Obama asserted that when it comes to ObamaCare, the Republican Party "is going through the stages of grief--anger and denial and all that stuff--and we´re not at acceptance yet." We used the same gag in October, though ObamaCare supporters were the butt of our joke. And we were recycling our own material: We also invoked the Elisabeth Kübler Ross "stages of grief" way back in November 2000 in reference to Al Gore´s refusal to concede his loss to George W. Bush.

The GOP has been hijacked. That’s right, hijacked. Over the past 100 years, an elite progressive minority has taken the Republican Party far afield from its conservative platform and the interests and values of its grassroots conservative base. I’ll admit that, in the aftermath of the disappointments of the 2012 elections, conservatives like me are angry. We are angry at being blamed for Mitt Romney’s defeat, when we argued from the beginning that he was a Big Government establishment politician and that if he ran a content-free campaign, he would lose. We are angry at the disrespect shown to limited-government constitutional conservatives

But the former Cabinet member and possible future presidential candidate may have been better served by a different title—like, say, Tough Decisions. Because Hard Choices has already been used.

The ´War on Women´ Failed in 2012

Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/17/2014 7:48:13 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is suddenly upset about the alleged wage gap between men and women, but he´s not responding to a national economic crisis. Instead, he is attempting to revive the "war on women" theme that, according to Washington wisdom, helped carry Democrats to victory in 2012 and might do again in 2014. If this narrative were true, the White House could spend the year demonizing Republicans as women-hating creeps, driving women to the polls in November and helping the party hold the Senate. But the conventional analysis isn´t accurate. National exit polls from 2012 show scant success for the war-on-women

She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

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

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

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. 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. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. 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." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

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

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already
