Polls: Young Voters Turn on Obama

By uncovered method I thought I should disclose the serpentine covinous deeds so careless . Herewith some transcript of the prize. Barack: When shall we three meet again? In thunder lightning, or in rain? Harry: When the hurly-burly’s done, When the battle’s lost and won. Nancy: That will be ere the set of the sun. And farther anon, though much between, relation partial of principles alchemic and happenstance agreed : Barack: Thrice the brinded cat hath mew’d. Harry: Thrice, and once the hedge-pig whin’d. Nancy: Harpier cries, “Tis time, tis time.” Barack: Round about the caldron go; in the poison’d entrails throw; Toad, that under cold stone Days and nights has thirty-one Swelt’red venom sleeping got, Boil thou first i’ th’ charmed pot. All: Double, double, toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble. Oh, there is more that I could regale, but practice modern prescribes drips and drabs.
So apparently the US Ambassador for Egypt isn't going to fall on her sword, or at least not all in her staff, or the rest of the diplomatic core. So a day after the White House distances itself from her comments, Madam Secretary of State distances herself from the statements of the day before and doubles down on the Ambassador's statement. You see it is our fault. We allow free-speech; we revere free-speech, even by idiots, but if we weren't so barbaric then North Africa and the Middle East wouldn't be burning. If we were civilized we would disallow free-speech, just like the Middle East.
I was given to understand that the Obama campaign had a nearly instantaneous response to Mr. Romney's speech. Apparently President Obama or his team couldn't see it, hear it, or conceptualize it, "no big ideas," or some such (I'm paraphrasing what I heard at FOX). Honestly, I don't know how they missed it. The big idea is America. An idea bigger than any "big" ideas President Obama has been able to come up with for sure, but then I guess it is hard to see what is right in front of you when you reject it. Go figure.
No less astonishing, and I had to go and here it again to make sure I heard the president correctly on the Hugh Hewitt show, was the President making a distinction between "forcible" rape and "non-forcible" rape...? Indeed, rape is rape, and not rape is not rape, otherwise the term rape is nonsensical. My follow up question would have been immediate, "Mr. President, could you define rape for us, and while you're at it, non-forcible rape. Thank you." The indispensable predicate of rape is force. All other sexual relations are something else: good, bad, or ugly. I find the President's remarks nearly as cogent as Congressman Aiken's.
Everyone knows that Medicare is two steps from irredeemable fracture. Uncontested knowledge. Everyone knows that Social Security is only just lagging on the same trail. Our economy at present offers no protection or guidance to traverse past explicit disaster. Medicare and social security depend upon a thriving economy. Our seniors depend upon a thriving economy. Our children depend upon the protection of a thriving economy. And those in the primary of their lives depend upon a thriving economy: to provide the provision necessary, needed, and felicitous to a happy and content life. President Obama's yield is failure. His consignment: distress. Citizens of this country do not deserve to work in vain.
Well, there is the fraudulent testimony by the Energy secretary when he testified that the scientific panel created to study the safety of continued drilling in the gulf called for a complete shutdown, which was a complete lie. Then of course there is the pay out by the AG department well into the 10's of millions (if memory serves) to "farmers" that never farmed, if they even got near a farm for that matter. Quadruple, at least, the number of black American farmers deserving compensation. That's two off the top of my head, but wait, there was blatant flouting of bankruptcy law in the Chrysler and GM bail outs, and lets not forget the refusal to notify Congress by writ of the War Powers act concerning Lybia, and well, I'm out of room.

The Imperial President = Hoppin poppin anger The President of these United States has irrevocably broken his covenant with the People. He has told the American People by his decree of amnesty that they are not sovereign; that the legitimacy and justification for government is not derived from the will and consent of the People. He has done so by arrogating legislative power (proprietorial discretion my foot) to himself never granted in the Constitution. As far as I am concerned papers of impeachment should be written even as I type this and if we lived in a serious and sober time they would be.

Obama's Deepening Hole

Obamanomics: Part 2 However, that was Abelard, a 12th century monk, and though perhaps appropriate for a Monastery or Abby at that time, or at least an understandable sentiment from a man whose whole desire and focus was for and on the spirit, it nonetheless betrays the profound ignorance of an often brilliant man. Fore it is during the most rotten of times that surplus is most necessary, as it is surplus that pulls a society through--including, and especially, the poor. Self evident, yes? Any anthropologist or economist worth his salt will tell you that the advance in civilization, understood as diverse complexity, will tell you that advance has proceeded from our ability to produce and increase our surplus.

Obamanomics: Part 1 "Whatever is over and above our needs we posses by robbery and are guilty of the deaths of all the poor whom we could have helped from the surplus." Did President Obama say that? No, but he intimates for the reality of just such resulting from our economic system. Did Marx say that? Not in those words, but yes.
