O’s cloud over us all
New York Post, by Michael Goodwin

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/30/2012 5:20:54 AM

Americans are in a panic. Crowds throng gun shows and shops. Blue-chip companies fast-forward next year’s dividends to this year. Investors cash out profits, estate planners report a rush of people trying to beat higher inheritance taxes and lobbyists line up for favors. What these people share is the goal of avoiding or benefitting from government actions. More than ever, the “invisible hand” of free markets is being replaced by the visible hand of bureaucrats. The political class is the new master of the universe. If this were being staged in a theater, the national epidemic of expectation

Yep, it´s the Blade Runner, post-apocalyptic every-man-for-himself Marxist utopia.

I used to live my life trying to figure out how I can get ahead. Now I spend my life waiting to see what the government will do against me next so I can figure out how to keep from going backward... So fast.

Work your life, saving what you can. Governments take half, then inflate the currency and take the savings. The lobbyists win their favors, and we pay higher prices. The politicians buy their votes, and our prices are higher. Those that pay cannot afford to use services, because they have already paid for those that don´t, and cannot afford being fleeced again. To afford medical insurance, I have a very high deductible, and do not use the services, but those that do not pay are there because it is free to them.

What #3 said.
Obama voters what to punish the successful so they are willing to believe that they can have something for nothing... even if it means destroying America.
This president has done more to divide and destroy than any president in history. Blacks against Whites, Poor against Wealthy, Women against Men, Gays against Straights, Secularists against the Religious, the Living against the Unborn.
All the while creating a cast society where politicians will be the only people left with any wealth or power.

Those that voted for this man think they did themselves a favor, but they are fools! No one gets rich on food stamps and entitlements.

Obama and the leaders of the Democrat Party that guide him are EVIL.

I beginning to understand what tyranny is. Freedom has been our birthright but now it feels like it is slipping through our fingers. The innate optimism that has thrived in our country is being squashed by a massive government bent upon controlling every aspect of our lives. We have been disappointed by the leaders we send to Washington. Why won´t they stand firm and fight for the principles on which this country was founded? Is it too costly to their political lives? Shame on them if that is the case because they make a mockery of their oath of office "to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies both foreign and domestic". When in our history has the threat been more real than it is today?

Progressives are crossing the boundaries beyond which marketplace incentives for existing Makers to expand their domestic operations are disappearing and no longer sufficient to encourage entrepreneurs to take the increasingly unknowable risks necessary to start new U.S. businesses.

Obama disdains the notion of fostering an environment in which private capital is used to create private sector jobs. In its place he’s substituted a policy of funneling taxpayer dollars (disingenuously calling these subsidies “investments”) to campaign donor cronies who own “green” businesses that couldn’t otherwise compete. Yet even with these huge subsidies they go bankrupt and the few jobs they created disappear along with any taxpayer “investment.”

Democrats, however, are adept at “creating or saving” taxpayer-funded public sector jobs (via the enactment of an avalanche of Byzantine rules and regulations and stimulus wealth transfers to public union sectors) that compensate government employees at a rate greater on average than the taxpayers who fund them earn.

Congress, the president, and thousands of 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. It succeeds only in spreading misery and always ends badly.

Circumstances change, but human nature does not. There are limits beyond which free men and women refuse to be beasts of burden for their government and people voluntarily dependent on that government. It is likely those limits will be exceeded during Obama’s second term.

Will there then be an American “Spring?”

As Rush said , we´re working for the government now . Our work is their money . Slavery has been so bandied about and what a lousy deal all those slave decendents got . Well WHO IS the slave now ? . Since LBJ gave the right to sit on your butt and watch tv while someone else gave you lifes necessities . Those who did the work were the first white slaves . Nothing has changed except a black president who enjoys watching us toil under his grin . He´s targeting the ´ rich ´ out of simple enjoyment for himself . If others of his race wish to join in , fine . The BP spill and Churchill bust are another few examples . My fathers dream in action .

Like Thatcher said, "socialism is ok until you start to run out of other people´s money".

Bamster´s approach to gov with the mass spending is bound to fail, yet he just doesn´t care as he´s running it all up on our dime. He obviously wants to drive the US debt to such interstellar-overdrive proportions that we can never recover.

I see him as the new terrorist hijacker, sitting up there in the cat bird´s seat in DC steering us madly into a cliff. The passengers, we sane US citizens, doth protest loudly and our words are unheard. We might as well be on a cell phone asking someone to come help, just like the airline passengers on 09/11/01.

#10. I get great satisfaction in knowing that Obama can not be absolutely sure WHO his father really is. The book he/Ayers wrote ? was to quell his own doubts.
He is so lacking in fundamental principles that he has (in his own mind) made himself great.
He is the great boondoggle.

As impractical as it is, conservatives must own a mainstream network television outlet -- namely NBC. Wealthy conservatives -- Koch brothers, S. Adelson, etc. -- must buy Comcast which owns NBC, MSNBC, CNBC.

Only then will there be a mouthpiece to counter the Chris Matthews, David Gregorys, Marthas, Candys, Wolfs et al.

Fox is great but conservatives need the mainstream aspects of networks -- they need to relay the daily news in quick, succinct soundbites that the "low information" audience can absorb. They need the format to reduce Obama to quick nuggets he so relies on -- "tax the rich," "pay their fair share." That´s all he´s said for most of the last four years.

Network formats would allow a Robert Costa to reply: "Mr. Prez., the rich pay 70% of taxes, the bottom 50% pay nothing .... what is your number for ´fair share?´ "Mr. Prez, you are breaking the law -- you cannot rule by executive order alone." "Mr. Prez, where WERE YOU on the night of the Benghazi attack?" Etc, etc, etc.

Please ..... everyone pitch in to buy Comcast. Conservatives need a big bull horn.

#8, it may be satisfying to blame the Congress, but it´s wrongheaded. Patriotic, principled congressmen get defeated come reelection. "Soak the rich" became a winning platform once Bush and the congress changed the tax code so that well over half the people pay little or nothing in income taxes. [Sure, they pay payroll taxes, but it´s that big bite come April 15th that brings home how bad big government is.] When we send our patriots packing, it´s hard to complain that they aren´t there when needed.

The news is so depressing today that I come here for solace. Lindsey says Obama has won on the "cliff" on FOX and perhaps Repubs will hold the line on the debt. HA who believes that? Rasmussen has Obama even more popular today ( I have more or less stopped reading Radmussen, he is now a shill for Obama). The landscape is barren ahead. The " low information voter" will never notice as the Republicans refuse to stand up and let them take a hit for their stupid vote! Is there no hope that any Republicans will stand up for principle at any time?

I´m for going over the cliff because more than 50% of adults pay no income tax. The Clinton rates and expiration of Obama´s Stimulus tweaks, which allow the poor to be paid by the IRS, will make everyone aware of the taxes that must be paid for big government. Ending the emergency extension of unemployment will further motivate those who have given up looking for work. Those who voted for Obama need to feel the pain he is causing.

The dark cloud that covers our Nation will not dissipate for four years. Mitt Romney was right about the 47% of moochers.

What Obama has done is to use the tool of Class Struggle in the way prescribed by Karl Marx. To the rich he added the Straight, Whites, the Old and Men so the unworking classes can all hate a wider range of enemies.

First 2 axioms - The main character in the 1957 French movie Gates of Paris (Porte de Lilas) repeatedly says: “All people are bastards except for you and I.” (I would say, no exceptions).
In some Russian book there was half a joke: What is in abundance in the Universe? Hydrogen and human stupidity.
I subscribe to both of these axioms!
Now, based on that I suggest our country finds a real commonsensical conservative leader and creates a conservative mainstream media. In this media we need to explain to the people of America what will result in fascist/commie government rule! I don´t see any other way.

No, the invisible hand of the free market is still there, thus the cashed out profits, inheritance tax schemes and record business at gun shows. The political class can play games with it, but the market always wins in the end and it usually ends very badly.

GROWING UP, MY three siblings and I suspected that our parents were secretly trying to get rid of us. Every year they took us on trips that brought us to the brink of peril—a midnight crocodile hunt on the Amazon, a Caribbean cruise during which the ship caught fire, a visit to Communist Leningrad that concluded in a supposed misunderstanding that nearly left our 10-year-old brother behind in the U.S.S.R. They outdid themselves one spring when they signed us up for a three-hour motorboat tour in a remote canyon in Utah—just the six of us, two boatmen and cliffs that

Polarization we can live with.

I have been studying party polarization in Congress for more than a decade. The more I study it, the more I question that it is the root cause of what it is that Americans hate about Congress. Pundits and political scientists alike point to party polarization as the culprit for all sorts of congressional ills. (Snip)Perhaps my home state of Texas unnecessarily reinforces the distinction I want to make between these two dimensions. Little separates my two senators’ voting records – of the 279 votes that senators took in 2013, Ted Cruz and John Cornyn disagreed less than 9 percent

ARLINGTON — The leading contenders for governor clashed Thursday on public education, as Democrat Wendy Davis called for more money for teachers and Republican Greg Abbott dismissed her proposals as “fuzzy math.” Davis unveiled a plan that would bring teacher salaries in line with the average pay nationwide. She also proposed guaranteeing high school students interested in becoming teachers a spot in college and a job when they finish their studies. Davis would also enhance a state college-loan repayment program for educators. “Education must be the Number 1 priority we address as a state,” the Fort Worth state senator said during a panel

As the tribute artist gyrates through the carriages on a seven-hour journey into the Australian countryside, the attentions of his fans—many of whom wear badges declaring "Elias 4 Elvis" and "I-heart-Elias"—becomes suffocating as he is mobbed by increasingly exuberant middle-aged women full of cheer and bored by the limited view of eucalyptus forests that give way to endless cattle and sheep farms.

The U.S. State Department warned Americans on Friday of the potential for terrorism at the Sochi Olympics but said it was not aware of any specific threat to U.S. citizens. In a "travel warning," the department urged Americans to be vigilant about personal security at the February 7 to March 14 Olympic Games, and flagged the possibility of petty crime, inadequate medical care and hotel shortages. It also highlighted a Russian law, much criticized by rights groups, that would make it a crime to publicly promote the equality of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.

On January 19, 2011, in one of their very first actions after retaking majority control of the House of Representatives, Republicans voted to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare. The vote was largely symbolic; no one expected the Democratic Senate to take up the measure. But for the House GOP, the repeal vote was the necessary fulfillment of the core campaign promise that helped sweep them back into power. That promise, however, was only half fulfilled. Republicans had not merely vowed to remove Obamacare; they also said they would pass a program of their own in

The Moral Evolution of Progressives

Boy, have progressives “evolved.” The party of saloon protesters, suffragettes and crusaders against smoking, prostitution and immigration are now the champions of government-regulated vice. They no longer want to save souls, but use them to increase tax revenue to fund an ever expanding list of new priorities in a turnaround that would likely make Frances Willard, the famous head of the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union in the late 1800s, reach for a bottle of Jack Daniel’s. The reversal is not totally consistent, however. No sooner had progressives successfully helped to ban smoking everywhere in public places had they moved on to champion

The White House brought their fight with Congressional Democrats out in the open Thursday evening when National Security Staff member Bernadette Meehan sent an incendiary statement lashing out at pro-sanctions Democrats to a select group of reporters, accusing them of being in favor of a strike on Iran. “If certain members of Congress want the United States

He was, he said, heartbroken. Embarrassed. Sad. Disappointed.

The bravado had vanished. The certitude was gone. In its place was an entirely new vocabulary of self-doubt and a once unthinkable spectacle: Governor Christie acknowledging a “crisis in confidence,” sleepless nights, second-guessing and nonstop soul-searching. Political apologies generally follow a robotic sequence. The public figure caught doing wrong offers a terse, often

The pizza arrived, steaming and delectable, a smoked-mozzarella-and-sausage pie presented to Mayor Bill de Blasio like a gilded offering to a visiting caliph. The mayor, on a pilgrimage on Friday to Goodfellas, a venerable Staten Island pizzeria, smiled, nodded at his slice and then proceeded to do the unthinkable: eat it with a knife and fork. Cue the foodie firestorm. “Disaster,” declared a writer at New York magazine, citing the longstanding city protocol of devouring pizza, no matter how greasy, with the hands, and the hands only. One website called it Mr. de Blasio’s first mistake as mayor.

The attempted whitewash by The New York Times of the hash she made of Benghazi only reminds everyone that she was asleep when the telephone rang at 3 o’clock in the morning. Robert M.

The Big Three networks, in a frenzy over New Jersey Gov.

You can feel the charm when you watch her operate in person, that Sarah Palin. You don’t expect it, but it’s there – the awkward mix of pseudo-authenticity and charisma, the smooth way with a room full of reporters, the way she just carries on, regardless. Me, I was taken aback. She’s practically my new bestie, now. Squeezed my hand, called me “honey,” even stopped to squeeze my shoulder on her way out and thank me. We had a wee chat and a laugh. Palin was here Friday for an early breakfast event to promote her new series on a fairly obscure

Chris Christie took the first step in damage control Thursday by apologizing and announcing he was firing two of his closest aides connected to a scheme to jam up traffic on the George Washington Bridge.
