What we have now is a depression. And it's going to get worse than even that.

18 "We're Already In A Recession, Says Analyst"

Bullshit.

Bill Clinton said, during his DNC speech, that we would be imminently "feeling economic recovery," and that was only over two-and-a-half months ago.

He wouldn't lie to us, would he?

24 "The Bush tax cuts that were not paid for" as Obama liked to say and the media never challenged, nor did Romney, generated $785 billion in ADDITIONAL revenue between 2003-2007. That is a function of lower rates across a higher base of economic activity. Why can't Republican's make the case that their policies are good for economic growth AND the resources necessary for a more robust federal government. Democrat proposals sap both.

By the way the $785 billion figure is available on the Commerce Department's own website... that would be Obama's Commerce Department. It takes about four mouse clicks to get these numbers. Why did Romney not make this case and put a link to those numbers on his own website? So fucking frustrating.

32 About the only way the republicans win here is to leave washington altogether. The media has all the angles covered except that one. Republicans set up shop somewhere else and start the alternative government now. Give the Democrats votes to pass everything they want and the total chaos that ensues will be theirs.

There is no way to win short or long term by having Republicans hanging around Washington DC.

None.

36 Ace,

If we aren't on offense we are on defense.

Obama is attempting to provoke a constitutional crisis.

We must identify one of his surrogates who is weak and sick, go on offense, and get the kill. Fast.

I recommend, as others have, some tottering media target. The plan requires actionable things that everyone can do that will hurt them financially today. Alinsky style. Hold the target and bring it down. I recommend the wholesale cancelation of TV subscriptions in all their forms until the news media starts giving fair coverage.

Ace, you have a bully pulpit. Other conservative bloggers read you, it can be done.

Ace, this is your hour. Take the lead. Call the shot. If we the people don't do something he is going to get his Constitutionsl Crisis.

62 Is there such a thing as a "signing statement" for congressman? If not, invent it and go ahead and pass a bill out of the House with the slimmest majority of only 1 agreeing to raise the top rates only as Obama campaigned on. Hold him to his campaign promise -- or let him veto it -- and let members sign on to a signing statement rebuking their own votes that provides them some semblance of cover. It seems enacting his promises and showing that his policies will tank the economy and not generate any additional revenue will give the 51% exactly what they deserve and put the fall out squarely on Obama's head.

Am I missing something?

63 re: "Since 2008, when were we ever out of one?"

We've been in a depression since the '70s, with the occasional unprecedentedly large and fragile bubble to fool us into thinking we're still awesome. Which is exactly what we're not.

"But oblig., have you not gazed upon the vastness of our TVs? VAAAAAAAASTness! Look at it. That stray pube on that bikini girl is like nine thousand pixels. And we all have really *tiny* TVs, too. Look at 'em all! LOOOK. There's a fuckin' baby with one! It knows how to zoom in to check for pubes! This is...truly...a wonderland."

80 When growth, which is measured in the amount of dollars more spent than previous year, is LESS than REAL Inflation, you are in a recession.

The problem is in how we measure things.... they keep changing the Yard Stick to make things seem better than they are....

If we used the Stats from 1990? We are at just about 5.8% inflation... if we used the 1980 way of figuring Inflation.... 9.8% inflation....

Either way.... GDP growth year on year, is NOT even close to keeping up with inflation....

Yet his entire piece is a pro-ObamaCare love story with a little "Some people need government help" thrown in at the end. It's THESE fucking people ruining the Republican party. It's one thing to disagree on the edges. But on the basic core shit, like people being able to help themselves better than the government can if the government would just leave them alone a little more? Nah, that's not something we can tolerate anymore. Either we leave the party, or people like this leave it.

(Reuters) - The Obama administration's opening bid on Thursday in negotiations to avert a year-end fiscal crunch included a demand for new stimulus spending and authority to unilaterally raise the U.S. borrowing ceiling, a Republican congressional aide said.

For all the trolls that don't get it that Obama wants the centralized authority (that of a tyrant) to run the printing presses with no congressional authorization. He could turn the US in Zimbabwe overnight with that unlimited power.

The usual definition of a recession doesn't fit anymore. That definition was promulgated during a period when we ran a basically capitalist economy. Under a welfare state, govt activity and spending adds false growth to GDP, masking the underlying cancer that will only be revealed later.


Those who created the negative quarterly growth definition did not account for zero interest rates being used for 4-5 years to stop an economy from free-falling into depression. They did not account for banks being declared too big to fail, or for the govt to buy General Motors.


We live in a new world. Our old definitions don't apply anymore.

The NSA in it tells Alec Baldwin 'I'm a politician which means I'm a crook...and I cheat. If I'm not kissing babies I'm stealing their lollipops'. Given dead dog voters and the authority principle is it possible we are in some weird Milgram experiment where we now only question the authority that our preferred authority tells us to especially for those on the left? Younger people are much more likely to follow authority figures and we have spent decades indoctrinating them with the need to conform and follow those in charge. Trust in authority even if that authority is bad for you kid.

1. I want balkanization. I want the Moron Nation to stretch across the east coast, the lower states, and to the west coast to have access to both oceans, but am content to leave whatever liberal shitholes that remain in the northwest and northeast alone.

2. Conservatism WILL be written into the new constitution. There will be no ambiguous language that will be open to interpretation by future liberal douchebags that manage to sneak into the upper levels of our future nation's gov't or academia. Conservative principles will be clearly stated with NO room for "re-imagining".

3. We will welcome anyone, including former shitstain liberals who ruined America, into our nation but they will never have any illusions of changing our way of life or constitution. The conservative articles stated in #2 will be immutable. No amendment process will change them. All other considerations can be voted on. Moron citizens will receive 2 votes. All others will receive 1/2.

4. A strong nation requires a strong armed military. Our Moron Horde will be all volunteer as was before. We will conscript an all 'ette Pleasure Regiment, however, to serve as morale and propaganda officers. Calendars will be made available every Christmas season.

222 ObamaCare will cost nothing for employers. The ones
that already provide Health Insurance will pass on the increases to the
employees.
The ones that don't simply reduce the work to 28 hour weeks.
In the near future: the 7 hour day of the 4 day work week.
Posted by: Al


You don't see anything deleterious to businesses in that scenario?

In the very least, employers still have to spend thousands per new hire, *not* including healthcare. Doubling up on part-time workers by no means absolves a company from the myriad of employment rules and regs. Right here we have higher overhead costs.

So, no, Obamacare is not cost-free in any sense.

245 Just me hit last night. We need to change the way we're thinking about this fight. We must accept we are no longer in the majorty, and we must fight this as an insurgency, guerrilla politics. This is how the vile leftists won, starting this in the 60s. They won. They won a majority of the country.
It would be nice if we could just pack up and leave and start a new country, just taking up the ideas and principles that founded this country and in less than 200 years out of all human history, which was nothing but misery and slavery, into the greatest success the world has ever seen.
But there is no new place to go. We must take this place back. Otherwise the the light that first lit up in 1776 will go out, and darkness and misery will return for a thousand years.
And to to that, we must face reality. We are a remnant. And thus we must fight as such. We must adopt the mindset of such an insurgency. We must subvert and sabotage the insitutions and sacraments of the leftist power structure, just like they did to us.
And that means getting nasty and mean. Our goal should be to destroy the left and their institutions, not win popularity contests with an idiot public.

So I used it as a math lesson for my 5th grader who was in the room. 1) UE is lower because of temporary, part-time Christmas hiring, and 2) One month by definition cannot be a "trend".

But I think in Cheyenne you can get a nice house for 125k and go up from there. Wyoming is in good shape comparatively to the rest of the US. Unemployment is around 5.5%, no state income tax, and we have energy here and the means to get it and I'm not talking about those giant windmills that dominate some landscapes out here. I was offered an above average salary to come here: Wyoming tends to recruit because the population is so sparse and not everyone can tolerate the weather. I love it here, and count it as a blessing everyday. I would recommend it to anyone who is so inclined.

319 hi all.
So I have been thinking lately.

We have to develop our own cult, like the Cult of Obama, like the Cult of Reagan, like the Cult of Ron Paul (but with less craziness in the latter case).

We have to find our own savior and work tirelessly to see him/her elected. That is how elections are won nowadays. It's not based on logical or rational decision-making. It's based on trivial crap like who is the "cooler" candidate or who is the one that "feels my pain".

I know we conservatives don't like to think of politicians as saviors. But if we want to save the Republic I think we have to.

Thanks.

We're all in this together.

My posting is way down and likely to fall even more.

I took the campaign season off and am pondering going into a small logistics business as founder.

When people thanked wife for her service, or me for my own back in the day I always said "easy nation to want to defend our greatness is on main street not wall Street or Penn Avenue."

I believed it, I still may but I think it might be time for us to throw off the yoke of the Federal Government as rendered and break up.

I don't know anymore.

defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies,
foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the
same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United
States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to
regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

Maybe.....but I disagree! This is the consequence of the Marxist movement infiltrating the school systems and the media starting in the 60's. The Communists told us in the 50's that in (2) generations they would ultimately use our freedom against us.

They ended being right, because the people in the country that wanted to change it, wanted it more, than we did wanting to keep it free!

This is actually not true. Freedom is what gave us the ability to find ways to utilize what others would have discarded as trash. That's how capitalism works. Entrepreneurs find uses for things that others wouldn't have seen.

Resources aren't resources until someone finds a use for them. It is freedom, non-centralized planning, that allows this to happen.

Now 63 million is pretty kewl but I wish instead of a label stating he was $214 Powerball winner it said "$214 Powerball winner who actually got $63 million after taxes" winner.
I think there are lots of people who would have no idea what that description meant. How could he be teh $214 million Powerball winner and only get $63 million"?????????????????

391 386 Truck monkey,

I'm currently in Indiana only thing holding me back is son's aversion to homework when no one is looking.

I figure I'll start out with a diesel F350 and haul travel trailers for Elkton IN to points unknown.

Dad is a trucker, and when able I plan to go OTR.

Keep the sunny side up and rubber side down.

Well, what brings up this concern, in part, is that I was in Barnes and Noble the other day and I happened to come across Lakoff's book "Moral Politics". (Yes, that Lakoff.) I didn't buy the book because Lakoff is a liberal asshole, but I did browse through it enough to get the general gist of the types of arguments he was making. Basically, he classifies the difference between liberals' and conservatives' view of government such that liberals believe in Government as Nurturing Parent, while conservatives believe in Government as Strict Parent. Now his characterization of the conservative position is of course a caricature, but I find no reason to believe that he didn't present the liberal view forthrightly. So in his view, the Nurturing Parent Government is exactly what you think it would be - a benevolent nanny. And just in my casual observations, I think this view of government is way more widespread than we would like it to be. It even crops up among conservatives from time to time.

So I wonder if the FSA hypothesis doesn't have the cause and effect backwards: did the people vote for Obama because they wanted free shit without paying for it, or did the people vote for Obama because they actually believe in the liberal Nurturing Parent Government view that Obama espouses, and so therefore would be willing to pay to have that view realized, but are nonetheless happy to accept the 100% discount that Obama (with Republican complicity) offer them with all of the bennies that they get?

The LIB strategy seems predicated on the belief that the former claim is valid, but not the latter claim. If the latter claim is valid, and we proceed with LIB, then liberal government is here to stay permanently.

Anyway, just some procrastination to avoid grading.

393 If Obama, Reid and Pelosi won't offer any cuts or any entitlement fixes, GOP should let ALL the tax cuts expire. "Obama insisted on a balanced approach. The American people voted for a balanced approach. I can't in good conscience vote for a deal offering no balance." Period, full stop, end of discussion. Then no extension of the debt ceiling without a balanced approach. No continuing resolutions without balance.

Nail him to the cross of a balanced approach.

It doesn't matter if that what people want...they won't be able to afford it...the only currency valuable enough to afford the government they want is Freedom.

Once they get a taste of that....they will be begging to go back to the way it was.

398 Willow has a good point, as long as someone else has the ability to pay Big Gov, they`re all for it, even parts of Big Biz. When that ability to pay goes by the wayside, the takers are unable to support the centralized Fed, the makers have said fuck it, Chicken Little is running around saying I`m right, the sky IS falling, well, it`s over.

Posted by: JohnJ at November 29, 2012 10:13 PM (Tt6ky) I was not slandering you. I was simply commenting on your "...billions of people in this world more deserving of our effort...". I was trying to make the observation that there are those that really want the "American Dream" of possibility, and opportunity, without the expectation of hand-outs. I am not against immigration. I want more "like-minded" Capitalists. Of any background. So long as they believe in the Constitution, and the ideal of more contribution than entitlement. That's all.

401 Well, it looks like we don't have to worry about the GOP caving at least.

So there is that.

My suggestion is that they call Obama's bluff. Loudly propose tax increases on the wealthy, than remark that the only thing holding back a deal are the complete lack of cuts.

For fucks sake, the retard wants even more spending.

Let it burn??? Shit- might as well be spitting at an approaching forest fire.

403 "I am not against immigration. I want more "like-minded" Capitalists. Of
any background. So long as they believe in the Constitution, and the
ideal of more contribution than entitlement. That's all."

One of the main reasons this nation has transformed into a leftist/statist society is because of that kind of thinking. This nation achieved it's greatness not just by capitalism and The Constitution. It achieved it's greatness, due in no small part, to a common culture based on the European West and it's Christian virtues. There was nothing noble in adopting the liberal philosophy of everyone is equal in regards to our immigration policies.

408 If any of you are expecting anything from the Republicans to oppose this - forget about it. Fact of the matter is they are part of the ruling class that has a vested interest in the status quo just like the democrats. So if you think for a second they are looking to save America, you might as well bend over.
When the people rose up and gave the republicans the house majority, they set about marginalizing the very essence of what brought them back to relevance. They are back to 2008 doldrums right now as a regional party of wannabe democrats mouthing platitudes to their base. Fuck them and fuck the democrats.
Foolish people who think that there is such a thing as a conservative wing in Washington can continue to deludetheselves.To anyone one here trying to massagehope in theRepublicans listen up. You have been had. They want your votes and then do the same as the other guy at the trough. Wake the fuck upand smell the roses.

411 The terms "recession" and "expansion" in the context of economics have to with the rate of fall or of rise in GDP.

In 2012, GDP has actually risen FASTER than forecast and than previously understood, upwards of 2.5%. Meanwhile, all of Europe, Russia, Iran, Australia, in all of those countries the economy is either SHRINKING or growing at a rate well under 2%.

So, naturally, Instapuddinhead goes off and finds stats that say, Don't believe your lying eyes, the economy is shrinking ... because hernia devices went up in price 12 percent or something.

What else WOULD Instapuddinhead say in light of this growth rate news? Trash it; Insta always trashes it.

And Ace always follows, licking up the droppings from Instapuddinhead's butt.

Since 2008, when were we ever out of one? There's been no recovery. None.



What we have now is a depression. And it's going to get worse than even that.

Posted by: Soona at November 29, 2012 07:42 PM (oy/E2)

Yep. I remember reading about Japan, and how they kept trying to dig themselves out by pumping more $$$ in, over over, and how the oped writers kept saying "Are we in a recession?" and denying it in the main for months, if not years before the crash.

I remember thinking at the time, well DUH, those of us in the middle/towards the bottom were already living it - $$$ buying less less, raises low to non-existent, if that's not a recession, it sure as shit felt like one.

With the Feds doing what Japan did, I knew we were in for it, but having failed pretty much any class math related in HS the USN, then in college, what do I know?
