If we could wrap this phrase into a bat,

and use it to bludgeon politicians about the head with;
"Sooner or later, the facts of medical production will have their ways. Medicine is an economic good which must be produced just like anything else, no matter anyone's protestation of "rights". It is being regulated out of production (the basic problem in Canada) right in front of your eyes. The implications will be profound for everyone's general quality and length of life, and acute for specialized cases."
From Beck. (who else?)

The second part of that post is good, as he describes the necessary circumstances that must be present for the politicians to so brazenly sweep in for the big kill, forcing Deathcare upon us. Hint, it's all up to the idiots in the electorate.

Love that term, Deathcare, from Billy's good friend, Scooter.

With talk like this, do we really need a better excuse?

Are these fuckers really serious?

This goes a little further than the usual sabre-rattling; they must be trying to stroke their own egos or something.

I say get the boys at Whiteman in the air, pronto, load them up with just a taste of what we're capable of and let a couple of the top generals in PyongYang, or wherever they are holed up, have it good and hard...and see what their reaction is.

Seriously, these indignant shits have gotten too big for their breeches.

Orwell wrote of the thought police...

...and now, it seems, there are wails from the would-be rulers and useful idiots to hasten their arrival;
"It's not enough to prosecute these murders as murders. They are hate-motivated crimes and each of these men had been under some sort of police surveillance prior to their actions. Isn't it time we started rounding up promoters of hate before they kill?"
Quite simply, Bonnie, NO!

Put one Bonnie Erbe on the list of public enemies and human-rights violators. She will be dealt with, if there is ever a reason to warrant it.

This is what government always leads to

I suppose it's not much of a surprise that the stupid-fuck-in-charge is facing a recall in November.

Parking in your own driveway and being ticketed because it's of gravel instead of concrete. Utterly fucking amazing.

Bring on more of this kind of shit, you statist bastards. Really, I want you pikers to be shown for the petty totalitarians that you are. The more you carry out this sort of ridiculous shit, the easier it is for people like me to get the masses all wild-eyed with designs toward turning your skulls into their lawn ornaments.

Please, do try to pay attention

"One of the many problems that comes with those who believe that government programs are the way to organize a society is that their deeper belief is that problems can be solved by fiat, that by commanding the circumstances that they believe will lead to the desired outcome to be brought forth will in fact create the desired outcome.This is a command economy, and it never works."
and this is why it doesn't work;
"Allegedly friendly governments offer their business patrons a killing embrace – do this or that, and we’ll give you more money or land or trade protection than you could possibly ask. The subsidies are so generous, responsible corporate managers will do pretty much anything to get them. Over time, the corporations acquire more and more skill at pleasing the relevant government officials – and lose the ability to please their customers."
Do you understand, boys and girls? And people from all over the world need look no further than the UK's great experiment in doing socialized healthcare, via NHS, to understand what a gigantic burden the whole mess is on absolutely everyone. It's still expensive, the government has a bureaucracy to run, the wages aren't worth the effort, the care is rationed, and patients are waiting to be seen.

Stay away. God-damnit, stay the fuck away.

Stop demanding things of Congress,

other than demanding of them to stop doing anything at all.

Walter Williams needs to be put in charge of that whole shitbox, RFN.

A couple of gems;
"When people call for government to do something, it is as if they've been befallen by amnesia and forgotten just who is running government. It's the very people whom they have labeled as thieves and crooks, liars and manipulators, hustlers and quacks."
"...there's the question of whether there is anything that Congress does well. What about Social Security and Medicare? Congress has allowed Social Security and Medicare to accumulate an unfunded liability of $101 trillion. That means in order to pay promised elderly entitlement benefits, Congress would have to put trillions in the bank today earning interest. Congressional efforts to create "affordable housing" have created today's financial calamity. Congress props up failed enterprises such as Amtrak and the U.S. Postal Service with huge cash subsidies, and subsidies in the forms of special tax treatment and monopoly rights. I can't think of anything that Congress does well yet we Americans call for them to take greater control over important areas of our lives."
He's right about it all, of course, and the Eloi just keep harping about how the Gummint must do this or that, lest people will starve, or go blind, or die, or whatever cause it is that they've taken up this week.

Can't wait to start the killing in the streets.

There'll be no convincing them...

...of keeping their greedy little mitts off of my money.

Supposedly, an employer based funding of health insurance is exempt from certain taxes, and someone has their knickers in a twist over it

Here's the kicker;
"Employers typically pay the lion's share of a worker's health insurance costs, and that contribution is treated as tax-free to the employee both in terms of income tax and payroll tax, which funds Social Security and Medicare."
WRONG! There is NO TYPICAL, at all, so quit using that fucking weaselly excuse for what's being proposed, here. I don't know, and frankly don't care, if some others have a different situation, where there are exemptions for "benefits", or whatever you care to call them. I know that I pay for all of my healthcare, straight out of my paycheck, for my entire family. My employer doesn't pay squat.


Keep your "ideas" in your narrow, little heads, not even to be mentioned in close company, let alone get out of your mouths in public.

You currently have FAR too much of my money, as is, and I'm not going to let you charlatans get even a little more. Fuck off!

This business is headed nowhere good, and fast.

You've been warned.

UPDATE: this includes the usual, useful idiots, such as Ezra Klein, Christina Romer, and the Major Dolt himself, Markadelphia.

Get your favorite 4" folder ready, becuase the bloodletting is going to come along soon, and we're going to HAVE to get personal.

UPDATE II: Shut the fuck up, you stupid bastard! You have NO idea what you are talking about, and it's as obvious to me as the nose on my face, you ignorant twit.

UPDATE III: Barry, fuck you and the white horse you rode in on!

Something for the Captain Obvious file

As if we didn't already know that Barry's been talking and spending like a drunken sailor, writing checks that we can't possibly cash, except by enslaving the rest of us and future generations.

Hope'n'Chains we can believe in, right?

Good God!

An insurance company, buying gold for the very first time in its 152 year history.

Here's something to consider while processing that first sentence;
“In the Depression, gold did very, very well,”
said their CEO, Edward Zore. As in, they made it through the last one without buying any.

Kinda damning evidence of the current situation, innit?

Look at this, and be sick

Utterly amazing.

So far, a career academic, not even yet a law school graduate (that by itself should disqualify him from almost all real jobs), a Yale stumblefuck to boot, is charged with the task of disassembling an equally stumblefuck organization like GM. The Gummint has hired a boy (normally I don't hold someone to this contemptible title unless it seems deserved, and in this case, I think it does) who has never been inside an auto plant, doesn't seem to know a thing about cars, or even business, for that matter, to wit;
"...the job description for Brian Deese, a not-quite graduate of Yale Law School who had never set foot in an automotive assembly plant until he took on his nearly unseen role in remaking the American automotive industry."
"...Nor, for that matter, had he given much thought to what ailed an industrythat had been in decline ever since he was born."
And I'm really quite puzzled how he managed to, ya know, get into this 'position' as the 'automobile reorganization czar', as it would appear, to me anyway, that he's part of the politically connected inner circle with statements such as this;
"Mr. Deese was thrown into the auto industry’s maelstrom as soon the election-night parties ended."
Handing out party favors seems to be a priority amongst the machine-politik henchmen from Chitown. I mean, excuse me, but, WTF?!?!

Let's continue looking at the wet-behind-the-ears, know-nothing "economic advisor" to the President;

"according to those who joined him in the middle of his crash course about the automakers’ downward spiral, he has emerged as one of the most influential voices in what may become President Obama’s biggest experiment yet in federal economic intervention.

While far more prominent members of the administration are making the big decisions about Detroit, it is Mr. Deese who is often narrowing their options..."

I'm sure that "narrowing" bit is right on, and he'd know about the industry, well and truly understand the business, through this "crash course," that presumably qualifies him to tell a business what to do? But apparently, he knows more about the big picture, you see, than the rest of us proles, and can wave his hands over his crystal ball, and tell the future;
"...A month ago, when the administration was divided over whether to support Fiat’s bid to take over much of Chrysler, it was Mr. Deese who spoke out strongly against simply letting the company go into liquidation, according to several people who were present for the debate..."
and then we get to the other baggage,
"...Mr. Deese was not the only one favoring the Fiat deal, but his lengthy memorandum on how liquidation would increase Medicaid costs, unemployment insurance and municipal bankruptcies ended the debate..."
Ah, yes, the "hidden" costs. What they mean in plain English is that the Gummint has made promises to a bunch of people that it can't keep, in the form of entitlements, and they'd be pissing off more people if they didn't appear to be "doing something", as that's a standard requirement of the masses, playing up the class warfare meme.

Further into the morass, we get this;
"Mr. Deese’s role is unusual for someone who is neither a formally trained economist nor a business school graduate, and who never spent much time flipping through the endless studies about the future of the American and Japanese auto industries.,"
yet the Gummint Heavies are giving credence to this hopelessly uninformed twit's opinions, if you can actually call them that.

"...He (Boy Wonder) starts the day at a desk wedged just outside of Mr. Summers’s office, where he can hear what young members of the economic team have come to know as “the Summers bellow. From there, he can make it quickly to the press office to help devise explanations for why taxpayers are spending more than $50 billion on what polls show is a very unpopular bailout of the auto industry..."
So, it's about the spin, then? I mean, that's what's being said, right there, plain as day. It's all about public perception.

And, of course, what so many of us already knew, before the professional liars and thieves kited billions of dollars, straight from thin air, for several months;

"The other day he talked about how sharply perceptions of the industry’s future changed after Mr. Obama’s election.

“At the first meeting with Rick Wagoner,” he said, referring to G.M.’s recently deposed chief executive, “they were in a very different place. He said publicly that bankruptcy was not a viable option. It’s been a long process getting everyone to look at the options differently.”

In fact, from before Inauguration Day, few in Mr. Obama’s circle saw any other choice. Every time Mr. Deese ran the numbers on G.M. and Chrysler, he came back with the now-obvious conclusion that neither was a viable business, and that their plans to revive themselves did not address the erosion of their revenues."

Yes, as I stated, we knew this. So, why was the charade carried along any further? Why wasn't GM let to the wolves of bankruptcy and the attendant benefits from which that may have fostered?

The rest of the article is really just a rimjob for the Boy Wonder, inflating his image and ego, flagellating us proles about his meteoric rise in doling out the cheese, policy-making and do-gooder-feelism, that is the stock-in-trade for the Marxist class. As if I really care about how diverse his upbringing was, or how it would effect his decision making abilities.

A overeducated, commited, inexperienced leftist, without any original nor principled thought, hopelessly idealistic and without any real working knowledge of the business he was handed to "restructure" through raw political power plays and back-slapping, making decisions about how the whole things goes down. That about sums it up.

Idiots at the helm.

Are any of you skeered yet?
