Obama's Job Speech - or - Failed Stimulus 2

Shot Down In Flames
Obama's "long-awaited" job speech - you know the one he went on vacation before giving it - was really nothing more than what many label as a "Stimulus 2".  Please see here what we thought of Stimulus One.  It's just a hodge-podge of temporary fixes and mild incentives that will not create one single job.  A $4,000 tax credit to hire somebody won't actually hire somebody - not with Obamacare looming and the rest of the economy throttled by uncertainty.  He also asked for more money for a sundry of infrastructure projects - you know the ones that weren't even "shovel ready" the first time around.  More of the same old policies - except this time he said it louder - and asked 27 times to pass his "jobs bill" that doesn't really currently exist.  All in front of an uprecedented full assemblage of Congress. And he didn't say how he would pay for it, but "wait until next week".

In his ever contradictory 20-minute speech, he claimed he was giving tax breaks to companies to hire people and in the next sentence proclaimed he was going to pay for it by raising taxes on those same companies!  He is as incoherant a man as any.  And a fool to think any of this will create jobs.  He could have just said I will start exploring for oil in the US and he would create an enitre industry - but that's not in his vocabulary.  Gimmicks are.  And he's now busy "taking it to the the people".  As clearly stated here, President Obama does not have a clue.  In fact, even the the left is now shaking their heads in disbelief.  It's another case of not Being There.

The Republican Debates - MSNBC Style

MSNBC - a collection of liars.
Watching the Republican Debates tonight from the Reagan Library in Simi Valley - a lovely place I have been to and would recommend everyone to visit - was a surreal moment.  Not because of the debates - but because it was on MSNBC.

Watching the aftermath of the debates on MSNBC is like watching the bizarro world.  These people live in their own far-out liberal heads and don't understand simple economics.  Starting with Chris Mathews, is who so consumed with what Tip O'Neil did 30 years ago, and that little man Rachael Maddow, its like watching a circus of limited minded midgets trying to scale a wall.

Bizzaro Superman
They, of course, pounced on Rick Perry's definition of Social Security as a "Ponzi Scheme", an unfortunate choice of words I would agree for Perry, but which he did not back down on - and immediately suggested that that was a great divide between he and Mitt Romney.  The reality is that they both said the same thing - that Social Security needs a fix to make sure it exists for everyone in the future. They consistantly said that Perry was for ABOLISHING social security - which he is not - and somehow made Romney look good - but he said the basic same thing. This what what they all waxed on about for hours last night.

Whatever, they spent the whole night trashing the frontrunner without listinening to what is going on.  Also they borught on Alex Winter from the Huntington Post who "fact checked" statements from the debate and loudly proclaimed that Perry "lied" when he argued with Obama's claim that the "border" was safe (in his speech in El Paso earlier this year) -when there is clear evidence of gun running under Obama's own "Fast and Furious" program.  This brain surgeon, with a gleeful grin on her face, compared "crime at the border" with "crime in other border cities such as San Diego, Houston and others", implying crime was down there and suggesting that there was not a border issue at all.  Not a more disingenuous comment has ever made on this network.

MSNBC - yellow journalism.  You are a loser organization and an association of liars.

Hitler Learns A&M is Leaving for the SEC

You see, Texas A&M is vaulting from the "big 12" conference for the Southeastern Conference (SEC) mostly because ESPN signed a major deal with arch rival University of Texas for a media network.  Colorado and Nebraska already bolted the Big 12 last year and this was the last straw for the Aggies and their wishes to be the only Texas team in the country's greatest football conference.  Alot of media make the Aggies to be bad guys for breaking up conferences and perhaps some tradition - but as the video shows, the evil lurks elsewhere.
