Football was the only sport I was ever really good at and I used to love it. (Though I abandoned playing by junior high.)
I was a pretty good soccer player. I loved and love surfing, though at my very best I still wasn’t an “A” or even “B+” level surfer. I’m a reasonably good golfer. I used to play a lot of tennis. But football was the only sport where there was even the glimmer of something extraordinary for me.
It burns! It burns!
It looks like they might be coming for Assange.
The entire political class in DC wants the man strung up and humiliated for all the serfs to see.
This is a very interesting discussion with one of the “good guys” in Washington (there are a few) on the nature of government and where we have gone wrong.
We (still) have a 1st Amendment in this country Mr. Cuomo. Thank God.
We don’t call it “mutant capitalism,” we call it crony capitalism. But the main point made in the attached article is vitally important.
What many young people know as “capitalism” is not capitalism. They’ve known only crony capitalism. Many young people have never seen a world in which the economy was allowed to breathe and one where people were generally free to start businesses and carve out a claim while helping fulfill the needs and desires of their fellow humans.
No kidding. Either be on the crony side of things or just drop out of the middle class. This is America today.
This is where political correctness (a term coined by Marx) which is a type of religion, has taken us.
Science is racist. Just what South Africa needs, people who think witchcraft (which is indigenous) is equivalent (superior?) to the scientific method. Why? Because science is “Eurocentric.”
This kind of thinking ought to work out great for the country.
But the smug ignorance displayed by the woman in the attached video is the same I see displayed by some Americans on the “Left”
The CFPB is/was housed within the Federal Reserve. The funding for the CFPB comes/came from the Federal Reserve. That’s a problem as Congress is the entity which is to allocate money for such programs.
Oh hooray, the Chicago politics will linger on still. Expand the crony political machine. Get more people hooked on welfare of various forms. Lawyer it up and make sure that voter ID, a simple requirement, is fought at every turn. (I wonder why some fight this anti-corruption effort so fervently?) The Alinskyites aren’t just going to go away. They want to infect all of our system with their urban machine tactics.
Big government. Big dependence. Big politicians. Big corruption.
Obama is no friend to free speech as many journalists can attest, even some within the #oldmedia like Susan Page at The USA Today. He clearly dislikes the emergence of an alternative narrative to the one he has sought to craft from the beginning of his presidency. Obama’s White House had “journalists” flowing in and out of it all the time. Even Jon Stewart had secret meetings with the President. And Obama is concerned that the “truth”
Federal Reserve “independence” is a convenient untruth for the Fed and for many in the Washington political class. The Fed is absolutely influenced by politics. This is evident even to the fairly casual observer.
(From The Dallas News)
Carnegie Mellon University’s Allan Meltzer, a distinguished monetary economist, had this to say about Fed policy during the crisis: “Under Mr. Bernanke, the Fed has sacrificed its independence and become the monetary arm of the Treasury.”…
…Bernanke’s Fed seemed to care just as much about the health of prestigious financial houses as the state of the economy.
Well no kidding. You mean increases in premiums of over 50% and massive tax bills for people who don’t buy the massively expensive plans with super high deductibles isn’t “affordable”? Well, I for one am shocked! How could this happen? Didn’t anybody see this coming?
(From CBS Minnesota)
Minnesota’s Democratic governor said Wednesday that the Affordable Care Act is “no longer affordable” for many, a stinging critique from a state leader who strongly embraced the law and proudly proclaimed health reform was working in Minnesota just a few years ago.
