200K Government Workers will be FORCED TO WORK WITHOUT PAY!!!

When has That ever happened?

This is the Run Around Screaming Hyperole being floated in an Effort to Save the Funding for the President’s illegal, unconstitutional and ill considered Amnesty (AKA – Save the Democrat Party) program being conducted by the Department of Homeland Security.

Oh… the answer is:

It has NEVER happened. There has never been an event where funding was temporarily held, cut, reduced etc. that government workers were not paid for their work.

Never.

Frankly we Need to permanently Shut Down at least 50% of the Federal Government. But those posts have done posted.


Number Monkeys Part III

So last week we were presented with a Horrible Jobs number.

Bad, bad, bad…

Roughly 146,000 jobs were ‘created’ when we need a minimum of 250,000 jobs each and every month to support any façade that a Recovery is underway.

That’s the fact.

Here’s the non-fact. Unemployment WENT DOWN! DOWN… to 6.1%

This is mathematically impossible.

Unless you’re a Liberal and in charge of Monkeying with the Numbers then allowing a Slavish Media throw those Numbers at the Masses like the Poo they are.

Here’s how this happens…

The Liberals in charge calculate the unemployment number going down by Removing human beings from the Work Force.  (No, the Humans did not Die or even Disappear.  They just told someone they have decided to quit looking for work.)

So stupid is this line of ‘logic’ it hurts my head.

Follow this ‘logic’ for a moment.

If this is the correct way to arrive at an unemployment number then… suppose every man, woman and working age child (now apparently anyone under the age of 27-YEARS OLD) were to decide to QUIT THEIR JOB TODAY and then TELL EVERYONE THEY COULD THAT THEY HAVE ‘GIVEN UP LOOKING FOR A JOB’, we would be…

AT 100% EMPLOYMENT!

You got it?

If no one did anything… nothing… and simply said out loud that they had given up looking for anything to do…

WE WOULD BE A FULL EMPLOYMENT!

Yes, I”M YELLING!

The is Foolishness on a Profound level.

The real, actually, NO POOP unemployment number according to the Bureau of Labor statistics is… wait for it…

12%!

12%!

TWELVE PERCENT!

I recall not very long ago, in an administration not far away, when the unemployment number breached 5% the world was ENDING! IT WAS THE APOCALYPSE!

Now we have a ‘real’ unemployment number of 12% (Which I also hold SUSPECT) and the Press is nonplussed.  Instead they report the Administration’s Preferred Fiction.

Is there anyone left in the United States that believes there is not a bias benefiting Socialist thought on behalf of the Press? And if so, how can that possibly be? Xanax? Oxycodone? Pot? Lobotomized? How?

So the Number Monkeys Strike Again.

Why would you take any Media, News Outlet or Talking Head seriously who doesn’t take on this Flung Poo directly?  (Please note: In this case Flung Poo is not a racist Harry Reid joke.)
Why would we offer even a modicum of ‘trust’ to anyone who regurgitates such Crap?

This is all about Marx, Animal Spirits and Keynesian Economics. It’s all about the ‘Optics’. It’s all about how you FEEL… Not what the REALITY we face truly is. It’s all about what ‘is’ is.

And… never let the Leftist Progressives Fool You.  Economics is INDEED Politics.

It’s control.

Controlling your production is controlling YOU.

At some point we have to grow tired of getting covered in Poo.


Bumper Sticker Of The Day…

Simple, Powerful, Direct.

I guess it all depends on how you fulfilled your service.


Salt will Kill You!

Or, probably not. When you support “consensus” instead of the scientific method you get quotes like this:

 “We’re not saying we shouldn’t be lowering excessive salt intake,” said Brian Strom of the University of Pennsylvania, who led the IOM committee. But below 2,300 milligrams a day, “there is simply a lack of data that shows it is beneficial.” – Institute of Medicine from a CDC Commissioned Study

Actually, the study does not provide any benefit for any level of reduction from average and above average salt intake.  Full Washington Post article here.

(For full disclosure, this has been a pet peeve of mine for almost two decades.  I witnessed my Great Grandmother send herself into low sodium shock, leading to coma, because her friends told her that salt was bad.  She nearly died… and probably would have had she not had regularly scheduled help who noticed she was unresponsive in her bed.  After that incident I decided to explore the harmful nature of salt and found… nothing.  Nothing.  In fact, all I could find was an idea… an idea that salt was bad for you.  This idea seemed to be perpetuated by vegetarian groups and picked up by health magazines and “nutritionists”, and has been repeated for years.  I found it odd regarding the vegetarian groups until someone mentioned to me that salt makes meat very, very tasty… bacon anyone?  What “science” I found employed an unusually high number of words like “seem, might, could, possibly correlates, appears, etc.” without providing direct causation of harmful effects.  The only unequivocal information I discovered was a connection to temporary hypertension… similar to having to urinate… AND the absolute necessity of salt in one’s diet in order for the body and brain to operate correctly.  In other words, we must have salt to live and think, which could explain many of the ridiculous ideas coming from those who keep their salt intake low… but I digress.  This quest of mine started 20 YEARS AGO, and nothing new has popped up until now.  And, what has popped up is what we should already know but doesn’t fit certain folks narrative.)

– So Why reduce your salt intake?

Well, WE just feel like it’s better.  It’s healthier because WE believe it’s healthier and you should be forced to do what WE think is best for You. So just shut up and do what we say.  Dummy.

Oh, and You must also stop eating meat, drinking booze, driving fast, playing your music loud… and other stuff WE don’t like.

Or, Salt the rim of that Margarita and get on with enjoying your life while ignoring all those busy bodies telling you to feel extra bad about everything you like doing.

Salud!


“Mr. President, Are There Computers Listening to, in other words Scanning, our Phone Calls?”

Somebody, PLEASE change the question.

Make him, Clapper, Holder, Napolitano… someone, lie.

Or,
At the very least ask… “Mr. President, Do American’s have a Right to Privacy?”
Then have the Cojones to follow up with any one of the 1000 logical questions when he say’s “Yes.”

Like… “What, Mr. President, do you believe that includes?”

Weasels they are…
