Clinton says she’ll release Goldman speeches when others release their private speeches, Howard Dean attack Sanders’s union support?

“Labor unions are super PACs. Now they’re super PACs that we like, so Democrats don’t go after labor unions.” -Howard Dean

hilllsbills cc

This is not a bad rhetorical tack as it is basically the only one Hillary has if she wants to continue to hide the transcripts. (By the way, there has got to be someone who recorded those speeches on their phone. Must be.)

And Howard Dean, Mr. Moveon.org,

Hong Kong In The 1950s Captured By A Teenager

Hong Kong bwc c

Hong Kong is a place to which I have never been but plan on visiting for an extended period at some time in my life. (God willing.) It is an extraordinary piece of real estate clinging to the side of the Asian continent and long beckoning the world to come and do business. I thought this was a particularly beautiful montage and thought I’d share it with you.

It should be noted that Hong Kong,

EPA has No Answer (on) Why They Didn’t Inform Public About Lead Water 1 Yr Ago

Mi Flint cc

As we’ve said before, imagine if a private company knew that Flint’s water was full of lead for A YEAR and didn’t make sure the public knew about it one way or another?

But the EPA? Well, there are rules for private citizens and then there are rules for cronies in government. (As we see time and again.)

Citizen pulls over cop for speeding, Cop union president goes nuts tries to smear citizen on social media, Posts citizen phone number publically

Miami cc

This is just flat out bullying. Mix arrogant cops (many cops are great I’ve known a few) with a police union boss who thinks his guys can operate with impunity and this is what one gets. It’s disgusting. The police union chief has got a lot to answer for.

Citibank: World economy trapped in ‘death spiral’

The universe has patterns. Either go with the flow or pay later. Looks like we are "paying later."
The universe has patterns. Either go with the flow or pay later. Looks like we are “paying later.”

A serious recession would be terribly trying particularly in light of the geopolitical jockeying going on right now. Acute financial pressure, and it is already acute in some parts of the world, makes for instability. Leaders do stupid things when countries are in economic pain.

Chuck Todd asks Senator Ben Sasse: What is a conservative? (And are American “conservatives” really conservative?)

Political-spectrum2-565x226

I have become a big fan of Senator Sasse. His definition of “conservative” is I think right on the money. Though I would say that the term “conservative” doesn’t really feel right to me these days. I would argue that what is today called conservative, very limited government, rule of law, generally an affirmation of The Enlightenment in many respects, is actually quite forward thinking and not retrograde as the term “conservative” implies. I don’t think most “conservatives”

Sanders Fundraises Off Goldman CEO Blankfein’s Comments

Blankfeincc

He should, and in this very narrow statement Sanders is almost correct. What Sanders does not mention however is that the reason Goldman Sachs acted the way it did, indeed why it COULD act the way it did in the lead up to 2008 was because its “greed” was facilitated by the Federal Reserve. The central planners wanted Goldman Sachs and the other banks to leverage themselves out. This was the goal. The Great Recession was created by the Federal Reserve,

John Cleese: Political Correctness Can Lead to an Orwellian Nightmare (VIDEO)

newspeak cc

Political correctness is a form of oppression. It is about narrowing thought. It is about creating mental constructs which are not real. It about creating a dream (nightmare) world which will then somehow become reality. It is dangerous. I would even say that the newspeak we see on some college campuses (and elsewhere) is a form of tyranny. It is anti-intellectual. It is based in the idea that a rose is not a rose than that language creates reality.

Goldman (Government) Sachs Says It May Be Forced to Fundamentally Question How Capitalism Is Working (Funny, Goldman doesn’t like capitalism anyway)

Goldman was President Obama's number 1 private contributor in the 2008 election.
Goldman was President Obama’s number 1 private contributor in the 2008 election.

Goldman should be dead. Door knob. A chapter in American finance history, but a chapter about the past. It should no longer exist. It is not an example of American capitalism. It is crony capitalism at its worst. It is a bailout bank. It took from you because of its mistakes and “profited” with ill gotten funds. You kept Goldman Sachs alive.

OU professor: Youths’ attraction to Sanders shows education failure (Socialism is the economics of the dim and the jealous)

socialism bread c c

Just – right – on – center.

Crony capitalism is a form of socialism and socialism is a dead end. It makes people poor and it is morally bankrupt.

That isn’t to say that opposing the current order isn’t a good thing. It is. But we live under too much socialism as it is. Free the market. Have a better life.
