Suppport For Democrat’s Government Rationed Health Care Hits New Low

September 28, 2009

56% say NO and only 41% say yes to Government rationed healthcare, a 15% spread and a  new alltime low. After weeks of overexposure, the results are in, the Oba-Mao teleprompter magic smoke is officially gone. Which is why you hear the race card being played everywhere, Bill Clinton pitching the government rationed health care scam, and other assorted types of smoothering big government Democrat fossils doing the same.

This is a much wider margin than the 8% spread that Hillary’s government rationed health care fell under the weight of.

Rasmussen reports has the details:

Just 41% of voters nationwide now favor the health care reform proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s down two points from a week ago and the lowest level of support yet measured.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% are opposed to the plan.

Senior citizens are less supportive of the plan than younger voters. In the latest survey, just 33% of seniors favor the plan while 59% are opposed. The intensity gap among seniors is significant. Only 16% of the over-65 crowd Strongly Favors the legislation while 46% are Strongly Opposed.

Irving Kristol, a giant of the 20th century, left us this past week. “Mugged by reality” was his famous description of his personal journey from socialist to liberal to godfather of the neo-conservative movement.

The Oba-Mao has accomplished the same, mugged the American people with reality, reality of a “*ism” warped socialist world they want no part of…


Social Security Will Run Deficits Beginning in 2010, Says CBO

September 28, 2009

Democrat’s thought it was funny back then, not so funny now.

Oh yeah, the Social Security trust fund trillions, it’s gone, spent long ago … Nothing left but Federal IUOs, and we now know how much they are worth.

The CBO has projected that Social Security will pay out more in benefits than it collects in taxes next year and in 2011.

The Congressional Budget Office is projecting that Social Security will pay out more in benefits than it collects in taxes next year and in 2011, a first since the early 1980s, when Congress last overhauled Social Security.

Then a slight respite as the economy picks up, assuming it does, and then by the year 2016 permananet deficits.

During President Bush’s 2006 State of the Union address he said, “Congress did not act last year on my proposal to save Social Security.” Democrats including Barack Obama applauded this remark.

Looks like the bad economy has claimed another victim.

So tell me how are we going to pay the trillions for government run healthcare anyone?


66% Of Americans “Angry” With The Current Policies Of The Liberal-Dominated Federal Government

September 28, 2009

And 39% of that 66% are very angry:

Sixty-six percent (66%) of voters nationwide say they’re at least somewhat angry about the current policies of the federal government. Thirty-six percent (36%) are Very Angry.

Despite the high level of political anger last year that helped fuel President Obama’s election, 59% say the current level of political anger in the country is higher than it was when George W. Bush was president.

The cure for this?  Limiting government, I think. It just seems that out of control Federal Spending is not what people wanted when they voted for hope and change.

From Petroleum Shortage To Lithium Shortage

September 27, 2009

I wonder why they call Lithium a ‘rare earth element(REE)’?

Most of these miracle electric cars, which aren’t miracles at all once you read the fine print, or drive one — Use a rare earth metal “Lithium” for their batteries and other rare earth metals for their drive motors. Among the rare earths that would be most affected in a shortage is neodymium, the key component of an alloy used to make the high-power, lightweight magnets for electric motors of hybrid cars, such as the Prius, Honda Insight and Ford Focus, as well as in generators for wind turbines.

Dysprosium and terbium are also used to make very powerful but lightweight magnets; terbium is also used to make computer monitors. Ceramics and stainless steels are among the other ‘common materials’ that make use of REEs. Not just for motors and generators, REES are used in everything: glass polishing, ceramics, automotive catalytic converters, computer monitors, lighting, televisions and pharmaceuticals, to name a few products making use of REEs.

Most of the batteries for electric car use are either nickel-metal hydride, or lithium-ion batteries. Did you note the part about the windmill turbines? So it’s just not cars, it’s the windmill scam as well. The REE neodymium is used to make the rare earth magnets in motors and generators.

And all this to avoid the sticky issue of why not just build some nuclear power plants.

Wean vehicles off of one resource — petroleum — and get them hooked on other much more scarce resources, lithium and neodymium. That’s what some critics have raised about switching over to electric cars that use lithium-ion batteries, since the U.S. imports most of its lithium from Chile and Argentina, while Bolivia has enough deposits to become a major lithium provider. But amid all the hubbub about the looming lithium squeeze, another resource trend is taking shape that has the potential to drive some big changes in advanced battery and vehicle technology: a group of metals known as rare earth elements, or REE.

According to Lux Research analyst Jacob Grose, “Rare earths are used very much in nickel metal hydride batteries,” like the Toyota Prius and Honda Insight. “Even though…hybrids use only a fraction of the worldwide output of these metals, if there is a shortage and prices rise, it will definitely lead to cost increases in today’s hybrids.”

Currently China controls about 90+% of the world’s REE markets, and one of the techniques that China uses is to prevent the shipments of the materials, but allow the shipments of the finished goods. To avoid the bans, motor and generator manufacturers move their operations to China, and their jobs.

But isn’t that Obama’s goal, drive up costs so much that everyone has to walk or ride bicycles? In the George Orwell movie “1984″ people had bicycle powered electric generators in their apartments, so they could lite up one light bulb to see, if they could get someone to pedal the stationary bicycle.

Did you know that pound for pound, batteries are about 1/20 the energy of a gallon of gasoline? And did you know that the world has sufficient uranium for 100′s of years of use?


Praise Obama

September 26, 2009

Out: Readin’, writin’, and ‘rithmetic.

In: Rappin’, revolution, and radicalism.

Mmm, mmm, mmm.

The Obama-Jugend … This video from a public school in Burlington, New Jersey, should disturb you. This kind of organized praise of an elected political leader fits cult of personality states like Nazi Germany, Mao’s China, or Stalin’s Russia — All especially liked to use little children in sing-song praise of their dear leader.

Have barf bag handy when viewing these formerly ‘American’ school children.

Most would call this indoctrination propaganda. You would think Americans would be smart enough to know what is going on … but alas …

Just like they do in other tin-pot two-bit banana republics, all hail dear leader. Actually I think the Chinese communist do this the best there is. Besides, the ChiComs have only executed 70 million in the 20th century to keep hope alive.

The above was filmed around June 19, 2009 at the B. Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington, NJ. Is it even legal to film children at school and then upload it to the internet?

Above is the real version of the music playing in the background. Alinsky said to stay within the comfort zone of the opposition to take them down.


Fail to Pay Tax for not Taking Obamacare and Go to Jail

September 26, 2009

So tell me, how do you force Americans to buy healthcare, and say that is Constitutional?

At yesterday’s mark up hearing of the Joint Committee on Taxation, Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) asked the committee’s chief of staff, Thomas Barthold, what would happen if Americans failed to pay the $1900 tax for not taking Obamacare.

Under questioning from Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.), Barthold said the IRS would “take you to court and undertake normal collection proceedings.”

Ensign pursued the line of questioning because he said a lot of Americans don’t believe the Constitution allows the government to mandate the purchase of insurance.

“We could be subjecting those very people who conscientiously, because they believe in the U.S. Constitution, we could be subjecting them to fines or the interpretation of a judge, all the way up to imprisonment,” Ensign said. “That seems to me to be a problem.”

Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) received a handwritten note Thursday from Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff Tom Barthold confirming the penalty for failing to pay the up to $1,900 fee for not buying health insurance.

Violators could be charged with a misdemeanor and could face up to a year in jail or a $25,000 penalty, Barthold wrote on JCT letterhead. He signed it “Sincerely, Thomas A. Barthold.”

The note was a follow-up to Ensign’s questioning at the markup.

Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) now has written confirmation that Americans could face up to a year in jail for rejecting Obamacare and not paying the tax.


Senate Report on ACORN Reveals It’s Nothing But A CON!

September 26, 2009

Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) is the Ranking Member of the Senate Finance Committee and has been looking into the matter. On the Senate Committee web site he posts a report from the Committee’s Tax Staff which is dynamite.

The Grassley Report calls ACORN a “big shell game” in which charities “are being used to raise monies which are then funneled to other charities or to other organizations for purposes other than what the donor may have intended … Dollars raised for charitable [purposes] appear to be used for impermissible lobbing and political activity.”

Once the money gets inside the criminal enterprise ACORN, all money is fungible.

Direct tax funding is not the only way you’ve paid for ACORN, either. They generate a great deal of their income by shaking down businesses in political protection rackets, and the businesses naturally pass those costs along to their consumers. And, of course, ACORN was a big player in the subprime mortgage collapse, which left you on the hook for billions of dollars in bad mortgages. If you add all this up, you probably spent more on ACORN last year than you spent going to the movies. Hopefully you’re enjoying the show.

Tell me you didn’t already know this was going on, swapping money from the front group that ‘ostensibly helps the poor’, meanwhile the money goes to the political support of Democrats. The poor get shafted. It’s the way these white racists at ACORN have been running the place forever. And why isn’t anyone in Congress doing any oversight?


Work Force Composition, By Age

September 26, 2009

One of the most significant repercussions of the economic downturn has been its effect on the labor market. It goes without saying that too many Americans are out of work. And as you dig deeper into the data, it becomes evident that the age pattern of changes in labor force participation rates is different now than during past downturns.

As the graph below shows, labor force participation rates have actually increased among those near and at traditional retirement. Since the end of 2007, labor force participation has increased by 1.4 percentage points among men above age 65 and even more among men ages 62-64, while it has decreased by about 1 percentage point among younger men. Simply, older workers are forgoing retirement and working longer.
LaborForce_byage__Graph_1

It’s quite possible the rise in the minimum wage is doing at least some of this shifting, why hire inexperienced people when you can hire those with experience? Unemployment amongst the young, age 18-25 is now 25% for whites, and over 40% for blacks.
