Bad Behavior Undeserving
of Sympathy or Support

Aspen Times, by Charlie Leonard

It´s no secret the United States has an unemployment problem. The government issues a detailed report each month that estimates the number of people who are either unemployed or underemployed and looking for work. The persistently high numbers — especially for young people and minorities — tell a very sad story for the individuals, their families and the country, as well. But there´s an even more portentous unemployment story unfolding today that receives almost no attention at all. And its consequences may spell even greater doom for the friends, families and taxpayers it victimizes. I´m referring to the millions of Americans whom

There is a good deal of "Small Business" being conducted by this segment of men. As the government becomes more "Extractive" there will always develop a ´Black Market´ (Free Market)in labor and goods.

One does not need a boss and a salary to be productive.

Building a ´survival´ strategy (rural farm) which will provide food and water when it can no longer be purchased at the store is what my ´unemployed´ friends are doing these days.

Charles Murray is not referring to you or your friends.
He is referring to the males in Fishtown who thirty years ago would have been marrieds working with children who are now single, living off their girlfriends and having children - they don´t support.
The high rates of illegitimacy and irresponsibility are not just in the black community.
The children are the victims and the pattern repeats itself as they be me the irresponsible victimizes with their government checks.
Obamas mocked Julia is their role model.

Concur with #1. Bums, dead beats, moochers, and freeloaders have been part of our society since day one. The difference is that their ranks are growing along with the ´women" who seem to be OK with supporting these losers. Increasingly our ´men" have regressed back to "boyz."
What is fairly new to our society is the rising numbers of industrious and intelligent folks who decided to go Galt.
It is my duty to help and assist the truly needy. it is not my duty to support losers.

Last month, as Ukrainian émigré-turned-tech tycoon Jan Koum prepared to cash a multibillion-dollar check from Facebook -- acquirer of his startup WhatsApp -- then-Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych was checking out of the Gatsby-esque estate where he´d cached his stolen plunder. That the two Ukrainians derived their riches under diametrically opposed systems -- free enterprise versus banana republic -- illustrates why all income inequalities are not created equal. Most don´t resent the rich -- only the undeservedly rich -- as a recent Venezuelan protest sign conveyed: “These Castro-Chavistas speak like Marx,

Vladimir Putin seized Ukraine´s Crimean peninsula on Thursday, and Barack Obama delivered a short statement about it on Friday. The former tells us nothing we didn´t know already about Russia´s strongman. The latter tells us everything we need to know about a weak president´s feckless foreign policy. Let´s take a look at what Mr. Obama had to say: "I also spoke several days ago with President Putin, and my administration has been in daily contact with Russian officials." OK, but why? What´s the point of talking if you won´t even make use of what´s said? On Oct. 18, 1962, Soviet

Top Law Professors:
Arizona Religious Freedom Bill

A bipartisan group of law professors, including both supporters and opponents of same-sex marriage, has sent Arizona governor Jan Brewer a letter explaining the religious freedom bill now sitting on her desk has been "egregiously misreprented" by its critics. The law professors write (my emphasis in bold): SB1062, which amends Arizona’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, is on your desk for signature. The bill has been egregiously misrepresented by many of its critics. We write because we believe that you should make your decision on the basis of accurate information. Some of us are Republicans; some of us are Democrats.

   

 

  


 
Exposing the Lie in the "War on Women:
"Beware of politicos making equal-pay promises

“Life’s greatest happiness,” Victor Hugo wrote, “is to be convinced we are loved.” But as most experienced couples know, love-induced happiness is a year-round triumph, not the outcome of a singular, mass-marketed Valentine´s celebration - the one Jay Leno calls “Extortion Day.” But men ignore this expectation-filled Hallmark holiday at their peril, which is why it’s become a $16 billion industry. More than heart-shaped bling, women savor attention — a lesson also noted by politicians. Just as women should be wary of transient Romeos, they must think again about politicians who whisper sweet nothings into their ears, over-promising before an election

Climate Prophets and Profiteers:
The most cynical part of
John Kerry´s climate-change speech

The weirdest thing about John Kerry´s weekend speech on climate-change—other than the fact that this is the same guy who in 1997 voted to forbid the U.S. from signing the Kyoto Protocol—is that it begins by quoting something Maurice Strong said at the U.N.´s 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro: "Every bit of evidence I´ve seen persuades me that we are on a course leading to tragedy." Maurice who? Mr. Strong, a former oil executive from Canada (he was Pierre Trudeau´s pick to run state-owned Petro-Canada in the mid-1970s), was for many years the U.N.´s ultimate mandarin.

He´s No Worse

Last week a biochemist announced that marijuana “is no worse than alcohol.” OK, he’s not exactly a biochemist, but he does have some expertise on the subject. As a teenager in an exclusive private school in Hawaii, he was a member of a “club” called the Choom Gang. They had a narrow charter: It was to get high smoking marijuana every day. “Barry,” as he was then called, excelled. President Barack Obama, as he is now called, still publicly jokes and brags about his teenage marijuana habit. But the president of the United States of America promises that he does

Manning and Sherman:

“It’s hard to be humble,” Muhammad Ali rationalized, “when you’re as great as I am.” In Sunday’s contest between No. 1s, the Super Bowl’s two most visible faces — Bronco Peyton Manning and Seahawk Richard Sherman — are case studies of Ali’s theory. Manning is football’s undisputed heavyweight champion, whose aww-shucks humility belies — and explains — his unrivaled ownership of five NFL MVP awards. Quick to credit his teammates, even after a seven-touchdown performance, the 13-time Pro Bowler and comeback king leaves it to others to laud his game. With his legacy on the line in his third Super Bowl, Manning is

As a binge-TV watcher, I’ve relished devouring serial dramas in advertising-free gulps. But “Breaking Bad” — the story about a cancer-stricken chemistry teacher turned clandestine meth-cooking badass – didn’t appeal. Then Anthony Hopkins declared it an “epic work” with “the best actors I’ve ever seen.” Midway through season two, I understand why Walter White is heroic. As men increasingly check out of work, marriage, and fatherhood, it’s hard not to root for a man fiercely determined to secure his family’s future before dying – despite his morally abhorrent methods. That there are dramatically fewer men willing and able to safeguard

Iran and Obama´s
´Lie of the Year´

Unable to ignore millions of cancellation letters and a rare presidential apology, fact-checkers at PolitiFact and the Washington Post designated “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it” as 2013´s “Lie of the Year.” Repelled by Obamacare´s deceptive sales tactics, Americans dread its fallout, but know our system allows us to think again. We can repeal and replace bad laws. But we can´t reverse the fallout from Iranian nukes, which explains President Kennedy´s warning that while “domestic policy can defeat us; foreign policy can kill us.” Sign Up for the Politics Today newsletter!

The economy has been stuck in a ditch for more than six years, and our national debt has exploded to unmanageable proportions. We have no coherent policy for dealing with conflicts in the Middle East, Africa or the Korean Peninsula. And scandals have erupted in the Internal Revenue Service, the State Department and the Justice Department. Moreover, the three things the president said he would focus on the most in his second term — jobs, immigration reform and global warming — get barely a mention by the White House. Those are not just my opinions. By clear majorities, most Americans

President Obama a few months ago signed a bill to increase taxes by $600 billion. The title of the bill is the American Taxpayer Relief Act. As for the fourth word of that title, if you’re Obama, apparently you spell “relief” as follows: T-A-X-I-N-C-R-E-A-S-E. The president thereby achieved his goal of transferring more money away from the people who earned it with their labor over a lifetime and into the hands of people who earned it with their votes in November. As he relieved the former of the burden of their money, he thanked them: “I just want to thank

Inconvenient Truths of the Boston Bombings"

It is understandable that a lot of people were relieved when the government was quickly able to identify and locate the perpetrators of the Boston Marathon bombings. And it is also understandable why some people might want to treat the surviving attacker as an “enemy combatant,” given his ostensible beliefs in — and potential ties to — militant Islam. But that doesn’t make any of it right or just — or permissible under our Constitution. It’s been said that the first casualty in war is the truth. And it’s also been said that sometimes the truth can be inconvenient.

The maker of Sam Adams beer announced Friday that it is withdrawing its sponsorship of Boston´s St. Patrick´s Day parade because organizers exclude gay groups. Boston Beer Co.´s decision came a day after a bar in Boston´s South End said it would no longer serve Sam Adams beer because of the brewer´s affiliation with the parade, which is scheduled for Sunday. Mayor Martin Walsh and U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch have been trying to broker a deal that would have allowed a gay group to march, but those negotiations broke down.

Secretary of State John Kerry warned of serious repercussions for Russia on Monday if last-ditch talks over the weekend to resolve the crisis in Ukraine failed to persuade Moscow to soften its stance. Kerry will travel to London for a Friday meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of a Sunday referendum vote in the Crimea region to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. U.S. and European officials argue that Moscow is orchestrating the referendum and waging an intimidation campaign with thousands of Russian troops controlling the region.

Fertility is the missing chapter in sex education. Sobering facts about women’s declining fertility after their 20s are being withheld from ambitious young women, who are propelled along a career track devised for men. The refusal by public schools’ sex-education programs to acknowledge gender differences is betraying both boys and girls. The genders should be separated for sex counseling. It is absurd to avoid the harsh reality that boys have less to lose from casual serial sex than do girls, who risk pregnancy and whose future fertility can be compromised by disease. Boys need lessons in basic ethics and moral reasoning

The vote was 233-181 in the Republican-led House as GOP lawmakers excoriated Obama for multiple changes to his 4-year-old health care law, steps he’s taken to allow young immigrants to remain in the United States and the administration’s resistance to defend the federal law banning gay marriage. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., sponsor of the ENFORCE the Law Act, delivered a fiery speech and read a series of statements by Obama when he was an Illinois senator in which he warned of the encroachment of the executive on the powers of the other branches of government. “How does going from being

U.S. investigators suspect that Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU -4.08% Flight 370 stayed in the air for about four hours past the time it reached its last confirmed location, according to two people familiar with the details, raising the possibility that the plane could have flown on for hundreds of additional miles under conditions that remain murky. Aviation investigators and national security officials believe the plane flew for a total of five hours, based on data automatically downloaded and sent to the ground from the Boeing Co.

US officials believe that two communications systems aboard Malaysian Airlines flight 370 were shut down separately, 14 minutes apart - which indicates the plane did not come down because of a sudden catastrophic failure. The data reporting system was shut down at 1.07 am and the transponder was turned off at 1.21 am just after the the pilot signed off to Malaysian air traffic controllers with ´All right, good night,´ and before the Boeing 777 apparently changed course and turned west. According to investigators this indicated that the switch-off could have been a deliberate act and officials told ABC News that the

President Barack Obama lamented on Friday that he´s been unfairly criticized for wearing loose jeans. “I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” he joked in a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest. “The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans." One fashion faux pas at the 2009 MLB All-Star baseball game was a costly learning experience, he added.

Will Darrell Issa say he’s sorry? House Democrats again targeted the controversial Issa on Thursday, with a bid to force the California Republican to publicly apologize for what they dub his “repeated history of abuse” toward the minority party. Democratic Rep. Dan Kildee (Mich.)’s resolution condemns Issa for repeated clashes with Democrats – exchanges Kildee said don’t live up to the responsibility of a committee chairman. Issa wields the gavel at the powerful House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which is probing the Internal Revenue Service controversy and Benghazi, among other hot issues. “[I]t seems that Chairman Issa is more

In case you hadn’t heard, young people these days — a.k.a “the Millennials” — are the most cynical and distrusting generation ever recorded. Only 19 percent think most people can be trusted. According to a big study from the Pew Research Center, they are less attached to marriage, religion, and political institutions than Gen Xers, Baby Boomers, and the other demographic flavors journalists love to use. They like their friends, their digital “social networks,” and their toys, and that’s about it. Not even a majority will call themselves “patriotic.” Probably more dismaying for liberals: Of any living generation, they are
