When attacking an enemy it is best to hit them at their most vulnerable part….
With North Korea, that would be to sever the support their leader and the military gets from it’s people. The entire extravaganza is being perpetuated for domestic consumption.. There are some serious cracks appearing in the North’s support for the “kid”. And why wouldn’t there be? What legitimacy does he bring as the head of state?
In the past year, things have gotten worse for the citizens of North Korea. This saber rattling is the “kid’s” last chance to lead… Rumors abound of multiple future plots being devised against him….
It is in the US and the rest of the world’s best interest to make this dissolution happen. Someone less irrational, smarter, and a lot more stable would make everything in that region settled and stable.
Aggressive Military action has the opposite effect. When the state is threatened people flock to the leader. Just look how democrats flocked to George W. Bush. Engaging the “kid” in military fashion will solidify the people behind him….
Our goal is to have the people solidify behind someone else. At the same time, keep our military prowess at top proficiency to prevent others from taking us on simply thinking we are weak….
Here is how.
If provoked, we take out North Korea’s air defenses. Then we airdrop food by having it parachuted into starving neighborhoods with the words, from your friends the United States of America….
We do and the point gets made.;. Gee North Korea, if you’d just take care of the “kid”, your lives will quickly get a lot better.
The only recourse the kid would have, would be… see I made them drop food for you….
North Korean’s aren’t dumb. Just knowing that the world is pulling for them to rid the “kid” might be enough to make one of those current rumors swirling around the impoverished countryside, turn into reality…..
Yes. Dick Morris is gone and there are no other Richards who prognosticate before a camera….
However there is a rumor that Fox is hiring Scott Brown, who was defeated by Elizabeth Warren for the Massachusetts Senate seat. Scott Brown was in the news because he just two days ago turned down the option which he was polled heavily to win, the Senate seat vacated by John Kerry.
So Fox fired Dick Morris, Karl Rove, and all the “old school” Republicans and is searching and hiring “liberal” republicans instead.
Thing is, if the media erases the Conservative from Conservatism, then liberal conservatives could just well win. Scott did win in a liberal state like Massachusetts.
It appears that is what the big money is trying to do. Make Conservatives look gentile, nice, respectable, funny, and full of love for their fellow man.
It just might work. George W. Bush used that tactic after the most successful Black president we’ve ever had, up until now.
Today in order to capitalize upon the fact that the fourth quarter economy sank (even though it was because of the downward pressure due to the threat of sequestration forced upon Congress by the Tea Party), they wheeled out Arthur
Laughter Laffer to make a dire predictions….
He is on their short list of who-to-call-when-we(FOX News)-NEED-a-dire-prediction…..
Because….. He is well known for making “dire predictions”..
“Economist Arthur Laffer told his clients on July 26, 1982, that (Ronald Reagan’s) Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act, which raised taxes by about one percent of GDP, “will stifle economic recovery,” “retard economic growth,” and undercut “the economy’s ability to enter into a period of expansion.” On August 20, 1982, he told his clients that TEFRA, Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act, “will tend to lengthen and deepen the recession.”
Instead, ….. No one could have been more wrong…
“Looking at real gross domestic product, it grew 4.5 percent in 1983 and 7.2 percent in 1984 – an exceptionally strong performance. The stock market had one of its best years ever in 1983 – both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 Index rose 35 percent. There was no increase in the rate of inflation, which was exactly the same in 1983 and 1984 as it was in 1982. The unemployment rate fell from 10.6 percent in December 1982 to 8.1 percent by December 1983 and 7.1 percent in December 1984.”
On August 20, 1993, Laffer told his clients, “Clinton’s tax bill will do about as much damage to the U.S. economy as could feasibly be done in the current political environment.” He said that interest rates would rise and the stock market would fall.
Once again, it would be hard to find a forecast that was more completely wrong….
“The unemployment rate fell from 7.1 percent in January 1993 to 5.4 percent by December 1994. Real GDP growth rose from 2.9 percent in 1993 to 4.1 percent in 1994. Stock prices rose and interest rates fell. More importantly, the 1993 tax increase and accompanying spending controls, which were opposed by every Republican in Congress, laid the foundation for the phenomenal growth of the late 1990s that actually produced budget surpluses before Republican tax cuts in the 2000s dissipated them.”
And now! Today,… well, there he goes again….
“You have the whole output of the economy shrinking. Not just expanding more slowly, it`s absolutely shrinking,” (lol, see by how little, below)… Laffer told Fox News’ Eric Bolling…
“That’s catastrophic,” the former adviser to President Ronald Reagan added. (Did anyone else catch the stupendous irony of that? Oh, Wow. You can’t make stuff like that up).
“You can explain some of that by sequestration, and defense spending was down lot and all that. But you still have a rotten economy. And it’s still too bad. We know how to fix it, by the way, a low rate flat tax, spending restraint, sound money, free trade.” (See George Bush’s Economic Record.) Laffer was responding to reports Wednesday that the U.S. economy contracted 0.1 percent in the last quarter of 2012…
Yes. Laffer was responding to reports Wednesday that the U.S. economy contracted 0.1 percent in the last quarter of 2012. Quote: “You have the whole output of the economy shrinking. Not just expanding more slowly, it`s absolutely shrinking,”
Recalling his years as one of Reagan’s top economic advisers, Laffer said Reagan actually cut the highest tax rates (From 70%-50%; they are 35% now) He said “we made a mistake” by phasing in the cuts, which he said caused the 1981-82 recession. But he said the economy took off in 1983* when the cuts (and 1%GDP tax increase) went into full effect. *
“This place just went like a rocket ship,” he said. “I think we had 7.5 percent growth in 1983 and 5.5 growth in 1984, just this boom that lasted for years and years.”* (*lol)
(Conversational excerpts provided by Newsmax)
The inaugural commission created a menu balanced across the palate of the United States of America… Featuring Maine Lobster, hickory grilled bison from South Dakota, Hudson valley apple pie, wines from Lake Eire region. The decision was made by a committee…
Mrs. Debbie Boehnor
Mrs. Diani Cantor
Mrs. Honey Alexander
Mrs. Iris Schumner
Mr. Paul Pelosi
Mrs. Landra Reid
They tasted thousands of different items representing areas across this , and came to a consensus… How hard is that? You try it. It is very hard!
If Americans who have no connection other than their spouses chose to run for office and won, can come together to figure out a complicated endeavor, why can’t we figure how to keep guns out of school, how to raise our debt ceiling, how to cut spending fairly and how to balance our budget?
The reason is the bullies on the outside. Those groups who yell, “don’t you give one inch”. Those groups who say “they’re trying to take rights away from you”. Those groups who growl: “take everything; give them not one penny in return”.
Usually those bullies are powerful because they are bullies. They live and survive on your donations… IF they can freak you out, that you give up some of your hard earned money, they get rich…
There is an industry that thrives on conflict. That gets rich off discontent. That fans flames to grow their pockets.
That industry is who to blame for our nation’s intransigence. Fox News gets the lions share, because they were first. But Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Ann Coultier, Glenn Beck, are all to blame. Because we see them in surroundings that mirror our memories of Ed Marrow, Walter Cronkite, Tom Brokaw, Peter Jennings, we drop the pretense that what we are hearing is not news. It is a business whose income depends upon the temperature of our hate. Pure and simple. The more we hate, the richer they get..
Would a consensus on a menu reflecting all of America have been so easily obtainable if Limbaugh, Hannity, O’Reilly were shrieking about each item? Exhorting any viewers to call and complain?
You know the answer… Proof is without the bullies on the outside, you put a handful of Americans on any committee, and things get done….
We’ve got to silence the bullies on the outside… Let’s do it, and eat in peace…
Not like Sam Donaldson got belted… but the old fashioned way. The way Dad did when his little kids messed up big…
The nation was starving to hear about gun control. The President issues a brief statement then asked for questions.
The first question was NOT about gun control. It was about the fiscal cliff. Most people outside the beltway don’t care that much about the fiscal cliff. 26 people were not pushed off a cliff.
The second question was NOT about gun control. It was about the fiscal cliff. Again, can we please get back to gun control….
The third question was NOT about gun control. It was about the fiscal cliff… Excuse me MR. Reporter? Did you miss the story and impact of the shooting last Friday? Or you don’t even care?
Near the end, Jake Tapper, and ABC News reporter finally asked…. noting that the president hasn’t done much on guns in the last four years and asking, “Where have you been?”
Obama answered exactly correct… I pulled us out of the Great Depression faster than did President Roosevelt. I resurrected the American Automobile industry, which would have failed. I was fighting two wars, one I finished, and the other I will soon finish in this term. It has not been a vacation…….
He should have responded….. “The real question is where have YOU been? You are the press; you define the arguments to which I have to give answer. Right here. Right now. In a press conference to cover this tragic disaster of a mass shooting in Connecticut, one of children 6 years old… I have to first answer 3 questions about the fiscal cliff, because to you, that is more important… The real answer, is if I wasn’t having to fight so many firefights ignited by the press, usually over nothing, I could get some real work done….”
“Reality” could not have more clearly answered Jake Tapper’s question…..
(It appears that because of this and other boycott threats, AutoZone has taken to twitter to deny they sponsor any politically-charged programs.)…..
AutoZone supports Rush Limbaugh. They are one of his prime advertisers. Of course it is for demographic reasons. People who listen to Rush, work on their own cars.
However Rush Limbaugh just called an attractive thirty year old,… a hooker and a whore on his national show. He then told her to take pictures of her private parts and send it to him “so he could watch.” Normally this would be funny and should be dismissed as a silly joke…..BUT…… The whole purpose of this exchange was NOT to make a silly joke……
The whole purpose of this exchange was to intimidate THAT WOMAN and to make all others quake in their boots the next time anyone dared to take an opinion unsanctioned by Rush Limbaugh…. because he might embarrass them publicly.
Across this entire nation, all public servants, teachers, parents, and a greater part of children, are trying to make schools bully-free…..
And yet we have “the unofficial spokesperson” for the Republican Party, bully a relatively young coed in school, whom he doesn’t know, supposedly to make her, and all other women learn to “shut up.” If bullying is wrong, then all of us have got to do something about it…. We can.
Yes they are innocent. but if a business choses to support someone they know is an avowed crack-head, and that crack-head arbitrarily goes off and wounds someone, then they too are a responsible part of the reason it happened. Had they not supported him, they would not now be liable for damages….
We are not talking damages in monetary value… We are talking damages to women everywhere… Unless something monstrously big happens in punishment of this exchange, it is now “ok” to demean woman everywhere: at the workplace, on the street corner, at the checkout line, on the bus, because Rush did it and nothing was done about it….
Every woman took a step back today… including your daughters…. THIS SATURDAY, MARCH 3RD, PLEASE SUPPORT A FLASH MOB DEMONSTRATION AGAINST RUSH LIMBAUGH AT THE AUTO-ZONE STORE ON ROUTE 40/SALEM CHURCH ROAD, BETWEEN 1:00PM AND 2:00PM ….
(GPS INFO: AUTOZONE 1727 PULASKI HWY BEAR, DE 19701)
BRING SIGNS, POSTERS, BULLHORNS, AND AS MUCH WOMEN’S VITRIOL AS YOU CAN MUSTER.
Of all the Delaware AutoZone locations this one was picked for its proximity to the University, clear visibility from New Castle’s County’s major highway, and for the fact that a very busy car wash is across the street…. Please show up…
Women, it’s time to REALLY bust some balls…..
Why would they not cover the results of the primary as it was happening?
Hmmmm, what on earth could be going on at Fox News?
In one of the most marvelous pieces of writing that have ever crossed my path, Professor Dumbledore, after the Sorcerer’s stone has been successfully kept from Voldemort’s grasp, gives out a few remaining points at the end of the semester…..
As he bestows points to a most unlikely hero….. he says….
“It takes great courage to stand up to one’s enemies. It takes even greater courage, to stand up to one’s friends….”
With corporate hatred rivaling the level of intensity the Colonists felt to King George, or Abolitionists felt to Southern Plantation slave owners, if Gingrich flips and coddles the corporate line of soon to be dismissed Mitt Romney, he will fail. Newt must maintain the populist vein he found in North Carolina, and portray himself as being the true one from Main Street, meaning by default, Obama will be left, …. looking like he is defending Wall Street….
This year’s vote will be anti-corporate. Whoever earns it, is officially now up in the air.
Yes, Obama showed “toughness” to go after Bin Laden.. But again, in the real world, that choice is a no brainer. But, is Obama tough enough to imprison his personal friends, those traders at Goldman-Sachs, for their illegal deception which lead to he worst financial crises in our lifetimes?
I doubt it. Anyways, .. Time is running out.
At times they are, more so now than in recent memory. But, they were not always… There are fond memories from some of the more senior actors on the political stages across this country, of when elections were viewed as mere sporting events… similar to that of Dallas versus Philadelphia… Some sparing, baiting, teasing when on, but after the vote, life went on.. just the same as it does after game day.
The decisiveness began to occur during the eighties. Which simultaneously, coincides with the advent of Fox News… We all know how a mother in law can pick apart a marriage. Suppose a news network used the same approach? First shining a light on one little thing that pissed the other partner off, then, returning the favor, shining a light on something the other did, pissing the first one off too… Pretty soon both sides are expressing anger at each other; so mad they are, it never occurs to them to be mad at the person creating a fiasco where none existed before… the mother in law…..
What if our anger, was just us getting played? I imagine one could do that with a team rivalry. “Cowboy players all said they wished when they played Philadelphia, they could play in another city. Philadelphia stinks…” Then two days later. Philadelphia’s quarterback said the ugliest hooker in Philly, was better looking than the Dallas Cheerleaders.” The following week, Dallas fans beat up Philadelphian shopping in the Galleria.” Two days later, “Woman gang raped outside King of Prussia Mall for wearing Cowboys Jersey.” So what if none of the stories were true… Actually no one was even concerned to check out their veracity. (it was false) but that didn’t stop the animosity from building… Next seasons event: for some reason, had more fights then ever recorded at any NFL game. The second game of the season, was played without any fans in the stands…. Tickets were refunded.
Of course this is fictitious. And believable..
So what if we hate each other for no reason? Just that we were told there was a reason and so hate we do?
There is proof that we don’t hate for a reason.
One, history. We always got along well before.
Two, American Tradition. We pride ourselves with polite civility
Three, both Tea Party and Occupiers, have big money corruption as part of their policy planks.
Four, both Tea Party and Occupiers within the course of two years, have protested the status quo.
Five, both Tea Partiers and Occupiers have a common enemy. Big Money.
Six, both Occupiers and Tea Partiers, are upset Middle Class is doing poorly…
Just like the broken couple, both point fingers at the other side, and develop a deep hatred for the other.
But, is it too late?
Can a couple disown their mother in law, send her packing to a nursing home, and get along well enough again to provide their children with a better future? Well, it gets done all the time….
Humans can forgive and forget. Americans as a people, are far better at that than most any other country… Certainly better than France (lol)…
Imagine if David Anderson, Jason Scott, Dana Garrett, Dave Burris, Liberalgeek, Hube, Pandora, Frank Knotts, Unstable Isotope, Fay Voshell, as well as a cast of thousands, got so fed up, they withdrew their accounts from a big bank and put it into a local one. What if they refused to use a credit card, tore them up, and all paid everything with cash? What if they stopped buying anything made in China, or sold by a multinational corporation? What if they all wrote about why and what they were doing, and all those who read followed? It certainly would change Delaware. What if all states did the same…Those mad on the right, and those mad on the left, pursued the same course of action, until the complete absence of secret monetary influences, became standard policy in elections….?
What if both sides, supported a constitutional amendment that explicitly overturned Citizens United, and forbid, slush funds, large corporate donations, and only allowed individual donors to contribute small amounts?
Would we then find common ground? Would we, without the divisiveness being forced upon us, have the normalcy to actually listen to the other side for a change, and craft compromises in the fashion they used to be crafted, back when things were golden?
Tell me, could you not work with the other side to achieve this goal? We have a common complaint. That complaint is that our government, who depends upon our votes to achieve their office, is not listening to us…. Both sides voice that.
Perhaps we take care of the corporate mother in law first, then work together again and fix this country… It’s not that hard to fix, we already have a plan.……
