The Obama Riots Begin

Actually, we're not talking about how America has failed blacks in this country, particularly black men. And the reason we don't talk about it is that progs/libs/dems and their race-baiting sycophants won't let us. If, in fact, one attempts to address the entitlement attitudes of the subculture of this country one is immediately labeled a racist and no further argument is allowed. Let's make this as simple as possible: If you pay people to be poor and illiterate, the majority of them will take your money. Illiterate they may be, stupid they are not. In the 1960's Lyndon Johnson proposed and congress passed the so-called "War On Poverty", trillions of dollars have been on this war and the percentage of poor people in this country is not appreciably different than it was 50 years ago. The only conclusion that can be drawn is that poverty won. Let us resolve to end this foolishness and declare victory over poverty and spend this more wisely than we have. Let us further resolve to have the needed discussion on race. And I would like to be the first to suggest that we end the soft bigotry of low expectations and teach all people from their earliest years that everyone is expected to support themselves and their families and live up to the social contract that is America.
It's this attitude that prohibits the free and open discussion of national problem's. Instead, ad hominem attacks are launched at the first mention of disagreement. Simply because I disagree with you does not make me your enemy. Get over the delusion that you are the center of the universe and all things revolve around you. You aren't and it doesn't. If I don't like your politics, it won't matter your race.

Get Ready to Bailout the Postal Service

My father and I have both retired from the service: my father was a carrier and I worked in a processing facility.While I belonged to the union for part of my career, I learned the hard way that individuals were not the primary concern of the union. They were more concerned with protecting the union that individual rights. Since the restructuring of the PO in the '70's the Postal Service is supposed to be self-sus. The problem arises when the legislature insists on micro-managing the business. Remember that this gov't of ours has also given us Amtrac and ConRail. Neither of which could produce a profit. Remember please that the legislature gave away the parcel monopoly and gave away the profits as a result. This is the fault of democrat congressmen protecting their cronies in the unions. No unions for public employees. No interference by congress. Go to a sustainable business model or shut it down.

The Prez says the economy is building steam, getting ready to explode. Like a wet firecracker. Walmart is laying-off managers, Target is, too. Macy's is closing stores and down-sizing. This is a recovery? Is everyone in D.C. taking stupid pills?

Myths to Ditch in 2014

JR and Kafir, it's with deep regret that I agree with you. While I respect Jonah and agree with a lot of what he says, here I must disagree. We are told that we are too conservative, too intense, too country, too religious, too extreme. Compared to what? The clap-trap oozing from the leftist muck-spouts, poltroons and jackasses? We must not compromise, compromise has given us the state of ignominy we inhabit. Buckley was correct, we must stand athwart the on-rushing idiocy and say, "NO MORE!"

Obamacare's Next Round

Let's remember that O'care started out being sold as a process that would allow health insurance shopping across state lines, cut the existing conditions exclusion, and keep the decision-making process private between doctor and patient. Health care costs kept going up (driven by what Medicare and Medicaid would pay), decisions about health care based on what the two M's decided was appropriate. There were things that could have and should have been done. What we got was Frankenstein's monster. As enormous as the law itself is, the regulations being promulgated are, to date, ten times as big. And still growing. The scare quotes are beginning to materialize: there will be death panels, there will be rationing. The ACA is already over budget, the roll-out is a disaster, and affordability has gone up the flue All of this was predicted and we are going to pay the price for trying to be everything to everyone.
Manufactured crises are the forte of the incompetent. Incompetents are unable to function in the "normal" mode. Incompetents must have a crisis to control and if one doesn't present itself, incompetents design one to manage. None of this is necessary if the dems truly care about those that need help. The truth is somewhat more prosaic. Dems create programs designed to fail so that more laws are necessary to fix the problems in the program they created to fix a problem that may or may not have needed fixing. The longer the government is shut down the better I will feel. "Live Free or Die"
The same folks who gave us Fannie, Freddie, Sallie, the banking crisis, the post office bankruptcy, O'care, debt ceiling crisis, umpteen trillion in unfunded liability now want to tell the locals how to manage their money. When are the plebes going to rise up?
