But although voting to turn our country over to the likes of Barack Hussein Obama may be the most contemptible act imaginable, not even Obamania Kool-Aid guzzlers who fully realize just what they have done to the world's Last Best Hope need to spend the rest of their wretched lives skulking around with paper bags on their heads. Andrew Klavan offers hope for sufferers of D.E.:

As we close on another week replete with ugly economic data and the usual bizarro counterintuitive market, here is a summary of the 50 most underreported facts about the state of the US economy, courtesy of the Coto report. After reading these it almost makes sense that the market has become completely desensitized to the sad reality now pervasive in this country. Readers are encouraged to add their own observations to this list.
Surely if the list is doubled, the market will go up to 72,000 instead
of just 36,000.


#50) In 2010 the U.S. government is projected to issue almost as much
new debt as
the rest of the governments of the world combined

#49) It is being projected that the U.S. government will have a
budget deficit of
approximately 1.6 trillion dollars
 in 2010.

#1) According
to the Tax Foundation’s Microsimulation Model
, to erase the 2010
U.S. budget deficit, the U.S. Congress would have to multiply each tax
rate by 2.4.

Regime Uncertainty Update

YOU THINK? Lack of jobs increasingly blamed on uncertainty created by Obama’s policies.

UPDATE: A reader emails:

I am an instructor in a technical school. It puts me in good position to stay close with my industry (auto service). Each year I am on a job hunt for up to fifty students, and you can bet I keep close tabs on what local employers are thinking.

The past two years, but this year especially, the single most common thought passed on by employers has
been “I’m not sure I want to hire anyone right now, until we know what’s going to happen with taxes and medical coverage”. This is understandable, as these two items make up huge parts of a business’s outgoing spending. Not knowing what they will be nailed with, a LOT of small employers are taking the only safe road. They are putting expansion and hiring plans on hold, till the business environment regains some sanity.

I think they may have a long wait, and signs indicate that’s exactly what local employers are expecting.

Some Refreshing Countermoonbattery

Liberals may dominate the entertainment establishment, but they don't have a total stranglehold on comedy. Here's Brad Stine on the moonbat tactic of controlling us by being offended:

No More Thugs In Space

clipped from
Hook-handed cleric Abu Hamza last night gloated over the shuttle disaster and rejoiced in the deaths of the seven astronauts.

The Muslim fanatic called the Columbia crew "thugs of space" who deserved to die.

He denounced the team — made up of Americans, an Israeli and an Indian-born Hindu — as a "trinity of evil" punished by Allah.

Not to worry, Allah — the Great Satan won't be launching any more thugs into space with Chairman Zero at the helm.

Today NASA took another giant leap for mankind by issuing a new commemorative Muslim box cutter. Via Dark Angel Politics:


Alien Exoneration

clipped from

The “exoneration” by Climategate investigations (like Muir Russell) that never bother to talk to skeptics, create an impossible conundrum of having essentially a trial with judge, jury, reporters, spectators, and defendant, but no plaintiff. The plaintiff is locked outside the courtroom sitting in the hall hollering and hoping the jury hears some of what he has to say.

Given this, I thought it valuable to revisit this Cal-Tech lecture on the state of science and consensus by the late Michael Crichton.

Pants O Fire

In one of the most embarrassing displays of disingenuity ever perpetrated by an American President, Mr. Obama lauded himself for saving our country from another Great Depression during his now infamous speech in Racine, WI last week. "Now every economist who has looked at it has said that the Recovery Act [stimulus bill] did its job," proclaimed the President. "It put a brake on the collapse of the economy," he continued. "We avoided a Great Depression. We are now growing again."

It is plainly evident, however, that all of this is patently untrue. If not for the fact that 974,000 Americans had not dropped out of the workforce the past two months, the unemployment figure would be a staggering 10.1 percent. Actual Unemployment (U6) remains around 18 percent. We are seeing far less job creation than is needed to even keep up with the number of new workers entering the job market.

Mistress Of Disaster

clipped from

The Clintons’ trusted point person, Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick, would take the investigation away from the professionals in the National Transportation Safety Board and give it to the amateurs of the FBI. There was one reason why. The FBI reported to her. The NTSB did not.

This was illegal, of course, but the media had a president to re-elect soon enough, and they were not about to scruple over details.

The second part of the strategy was as simple as the first. The FBI would talk only to the New York Times. This essentially made the Times’ Gorelick’s ministry of propaganda.

Of the 270 eyewitnesses who told the FBI they saw what looked like a missile strike TWA Flight 800, the New York Times would interview exactly none of them.

Fearing perhaps to lose their privileged status and trusting the FBI more than they should have, the Times people followed the FBI lead. The other media, some grudgingly, followed the Times.
