John Mackey: To Increase Jobs, Increase Economic Freedom -

John Mackey: To Increase Jobs, Increase Economic Freedom -

'via Blog this'

Economic freedom does in fact make the whole pie larger but no matter how large it gets, those who are lazy and have a government handout never get tired of asking for a bigger share. I am not saying there should not be mechanisms to assist those in true need but therein lies the rub. When the government agencies are run by the same quality of people who "want" to help everyone who claims to be needy, well the definition of "true" need gets blurred. It is at the point now where the entire welfare system is a mess and a gross waste and non-productive use of taxpayer funds. And these funds are not "entitlements." If I worked my whole life contributing to Social Security then my share of those funds becomes an entitlement I have against the government, not against my fellow tax payer. The government made a pledge to have the funds there for my retirement years, sort of like a forced savings account.

It is her court. She appointed 10 of the 15 Justices during her tenure which is also at issue due to investigations of election fraud.

Bought and paid for. Time for a little payback Justices. And come through they did.

The American Spectator : Is Newt Gingrich America's Churchill?:

'via Blog this'

Interesting observation that "he is the adult in the room." Newt has the breadth of knowledge and the ability to communicate and inspire. What drags him down is his past RINO history. If only he would reform his ways and be more loyal to principals rather than just pragmatic at the moment would make him a leader people would be more willing to follow.

Anyone who is sick and in particular has a serious neck problem is not going to be doing this kind of extensive traveling to meetings unrelated to seeking advice of the world's top medical experts. Anything else is proof of duplicity and intent to evade justice of the state.

Marquez just has to accept that a punch count does not qualify as the definition of defeating the champ. In order to defeat the champ, you have to beat him ... DECISIVELY. So at 3-0 in favor of Manny, get over it.

"I haven’t left my house in days.
I watch the news channels incessantly.
All the news stories are about the election;
All the commercials are for Viagra and Cialis.

Christian Science Monitor - A Long, Steep Drop for Americans' Standard of Living - CNBC

Yes, things are bad but the media would have you believe that all is just peachy keen.

But hey, we have the OWS crowd protesting the wrong people, so what's not to complain about. They should be going after WASHINGTON politicians!

And leave it to ever so smart journalists to point out that people with few job skills and little or no education are the hardest hit by the bad economy. DUH!

What they should be pointing out is what caused the problem and the fact that nothing, and I mean nothing is being done to correct the problem. Instead the socialists in the White House simply continue to add fuel to the fire, not only at home, but around the world. Idiots. They never learn.

The Rise of India | Byliner Spotlights

Very true, a neglected majority not only in Asia but around the world. Some estimates put the Indian population surpassing the Chinese by 2050. An amazing growth rate inspite on China's one child policy which will probably have to be done away with due to tax revenue projections of an aging population.

The American Spectator : Iran on Nuclear Threshold

Ajad still acts like he is "playing" around with a bunch of idiots. Well, they have our President pegged pretty good but not so the Israeli's. Ajad thinks he has been clever in delaying the UN and IAEA inspections and thumbing their nose at world opinion but he has done so while giving Israel time to plan how to handle this existential threat to their country and it's people.

Beware Ajad, the Pale Rider comes on a horse and Death comes with him.

The American Spectator : Beyond Thunderdome

UFC, Ultimate Fighting Championship, is a full contact sport where fighters make use of a wide variety of martial arts skills developed over years of practice.

My favorite light heavyweight is Lyoto Machida from Brazil. He is a Karate black belt who also holds a black belt is Jiu Jitsiu and knows several other disciplines. This guy started at age 3 when his father, a Karate master began teaching him.

All fighters know multiple disciplines but have a strong starting base in one. Some have wrestling. Others muy thai. Others combinations of these plus extensive practice in boxing, judo, wrestling, and local skills depending on their regional home favorites.

You have got to see these guys in action. I can't deny there is the animal aspect to it. But there is the professionalism, discipline, technique, display of heart and courage, competitiveness and can't quit attitude that says "never say die." This kind of commitment is rare.

Check it out.

Staring into the abyss | The Economist

In the 1980's I said no way the Euro would happen just based on the acrimony between all the involved countries and their various intermingled histories.

Well, I was wrong, sort of. The Euro happened and the EU happened but it looks like it will not survive. And even if life sustaining measures are adopted, it will only be a shadow of it's founder's original intentions.

Israel as Maverick because no one is standing with her at time of need. What would you do if your neighbor vowed to kill your family and burn your home down and the local fire and police said "not really!" and neighbors said "oh, come on!"??
