Explaining Romney's Surge

If Cutter is an alpha emitter, Axe is now a gamma source of nova-level output.
Dash put it well although it sounds like a Romney line. "I don't want the next four years to be like the last four years." If that is a product of the campaign, it is quite a good one.
So the government can NOT, actually, get the children to eat their peas. The solution is simple: they shall get ONLY peas until they have cleaned their plate. If only we weren't so short of peas.
Not much meat on this article regarding the fraudulent nature of Volt "sales". Before you get into the ACTUAL cost of getting one of these novelties out of the factory you have to account for the forced nature of the sales (many are fleet sales to GE and others) and the current state of these vehicles. It is known as "channel stuffing". If you want to make your numbers perk up, offer incentives to dealers to take cars (or punishments if they refuse to order them). Even these half-a33ed figures for the Volt are fictitious. Check zerohedge.com for the details. Searching "Volt" will produce enough dissection of this latest mendacity to make Joe Biden puke.
The combustion car's heat is excess heat from the engine so it is essentially free. The electric car has what amounts to a hair dryer in the dash. Yes, that is a demanding little gadget. Air conditioning is likewise run from the Volt's batteries where in a gas car it draws compressor torque from the already spinning crank. Yes, that draws gas too but you will never get more than a couple miles in a Volt or Leaf with anything like cold AC as we used to have.
It's collusion. The Greens and the Reds are indistinguishable because in both cases their claimed intentions are immaterial to their true aims. It's loot and nothing but. The excuses are varied. The ends coincide. Don't excuse the unions (the coerced unions anyhow). Don't excuse the enviros. Don't excuse the welfare pimps or the educrats. It is all the same thing. It is socialism. It must end.
The Chevy Halt! That is genius. Reminds me of when they tried selling the Nova in Mexico, ignorant that no va means "no go" en espanol.
Well said. Now that the American socialists have run out of other people's money, the tapeworms are turning on each other. It is the only way this ends so it is, sadly, the best news one can hope for.

Taking the Long View

Greater and greater "stimulus' has gotten us all where we are. Currency collapse is the only endpoint absent dire action but if people do recognize the shuddering of the gravy train, and I think they do, then the most rational course economically is to draw as much from the system as possible now. And another thing. Monkeys love tobacco.

Real Racism

Joke? What are you talking about? West's answer to a question about elected Commies was straighforward and factual. If it was a joke it is one he continued on the Mark Levin show on Friday night with supporting evidence. Whether these are "card-carrying" Commies or not (and I've never seen a card for Republicans or Democrats) their policies and ideology is not distinguishable from Marxism whether they admit it or not. As for your dismissal of the Martin case, yes, a crime is a crime but here a NON-crime is being deemed and declared a crime. Absent additional evidence there is NO evidence of any crime committed by Zimmerman as the initial non-mob induced investigation concluded. Corey's affidavit includes NO new inculpatory evidence.

Analysis: Obama's Worst Speech Yet

Were even the parts where he contradicted Candidate Obama or Last Week Obama Straight Truth? Why wouldn't even one single member of either House vote for his budget to infinity and beyond? And while you don't have the time (at four in the frikin' morning) to read what you complain about and perhaps have not the literacy, you do have time to make multiple iterations of your bilious stupidity available to the public. Come up with ONE fact to support your whining. Or don't I don't have time either. Well, I do but you have proven yourself to be an imbecile, clearly and MMFA troll worthy of nothing but a kick in the teeth, now delivered. Simper off and lick your balls for a while if you can locate them.
