If the debt is no problem, how come Obama keeps bragging about cutting the deficit (his own) in half?

The government can't just keep printing money. The printing presses will contribute to global warming!

DoT, Don't you wish you could give that faker a pop quiz on economic and legal terms, geography and history? Maybe even simple math,

Exonerated! Gov. Chris Christie-Ordered Bridgegate Report Clears Chris Christie

Old Lurker

Speaking of exonerated, WH says more than 6M have now bought private insurance through the exchanges.

Well gollee gee.

NK(withnewsoftware)

"6 Million"-- a driveby number that means nothing. The most recent million, who has actually paid? matters not, Obummer will just waive the payment requirement and 'deem' them insured. It's a sick joke.

Ignatz

Klein and Yglesias = consummate asses.

Timb

Takes a small mind to cite the trollish Patterico for anything, let alone his idiotic forest-for-the-trees argument here. Add on the disengenuous way he responded to Klein and one wonders if he needs meds

NK(withnewsoftware)

Congrats TomM-- this is a very apt post about the madness of the Debt that the Dems have created during the past 5 years, and the pitiful lies they tell to mischaracterize the civilization destroying nature of the Debt. You nail one such lie -- somehow SS Trust Fund Debt is debt for GWB, but not debt for ObummerPhones and Medicaid payments. Things like Klein and Iglesias are disgusting hacks taking Soros money, filthy lucre if there ever was, to lie to Millenials. When the Debt Bomb fully detonates, the Millenials will string up Klein and Iglesias, rightly so.

Danube on iPad

Note that this latest troll offers no substantive defense of Yglesias, and no substantive refutation of Patterico. In particular, he does not deny that the very first words out of Yglesias's mouth are wrong.

Figures.

Ignatz

Agreed on the forest for the trees argument.
The larger problem is Yglesias's preposterous argument that because inflation is low [tell that to anyone buying luxury items like food and energy] and raising taxes or cutting spending are bad [correct on the former, wrong on the latter] therefore debt isn't a problem....right now.

A guy who pulls the pin on a hand grenade and then sets it in his lap doesn't have a problem either....right now.

Porch linked to this on a previous thread: Poll shows Alaska Democratic Sen. Mark Begich trailing for the first time

Yippee!

And I think it must be true because it's not being reported by the ADN.

Rasmussen Reports. It shows an even race, 44 percent to 44 percent, between Begich and Republican challenger Dan S. Sullivan, and perhaps a bit surprisingly, Republican Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell leading Begich 47 percent to 44 percent.

Of perhaps more significance, however, is that only one poll, conducted in August against Treadwell, showed Begich reaching 50 percent. If the old rule is still in force -- the rule that says that an incumbent polling under 50 percent is in trouble -- then Begich has been threatened all along...

NK(withnewsoftware)

IGglesias? I have Ig on the brain. I actually laughed when I read my post.....

Ignatz

Sounds like you have Julio on the brain.

Ignatz

However, per Timb, if Patterico's point is so small why doesn't Matty just concede the obvious error?

Danube on iPad

The Rule is, deficits are bad only when modified by the words "Reagan" or "Bush."

"Dr. Corsi confirms he was just in England working with British intel advisor Michael Shrimpton. Mr. Shrimpton claims the CIA has DNA evidence on Obama and that Obama wasborn in Kenya. Dr. Corsi also reports he met with Lord Christopher Monckton and he's prepared to take the Obama birth certificate challenge to court"

Ezra Klein in 2009:

"Bush’s 2001 tax cuts was the first time the budget reconciliation process had ever been used for a bill that increased the deficit. Ever. Democrats were appalled. When they retook the Congress, both the House and the Senate passed a rule barring reconciliation from being used for bills that increased the deficit.

"The product, of course, is that Democrats can’t use reconciliation for bills that increase the deficit. But it goes beyond even that: A number of powerful congressional Democrats really care about the deficit. So too do a number of powerful White House economic advisers. They’ve decided that balancing the bill in the 10-year window, as the House Democrats do, isn’t sufficient. They want it balanced beyond the 10-year window, too.

"It’s all very responsible, and very good policy, but it means the Obama White House has committed itself to two incredibly stringent conditions the Bush White House avoided: finding sufficient revenues for their programs, and finding the kind of revenue that keeps pace with the spending in their programs over the long-term. That makes their job a lot harder."

Watts Up has it's polling open for ‘Climate Duplicitist of the Year’

Michael Mann is leading by a strong margin, but I have to go with the guy currently in next to last place, Aussie Prof Chris Tunney of The Spirit of Mawson icebound Antarctic fiasco.

Please jump on over and get your votes in.

Oh, so you met Timmah, he's one of the trolls that hang around Patterico's, he would be mostly harmless, except an excessive sympathy
for the Speedway Bomber's travails,

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that's been done before.

Anyhow, the bumptious Arpaio is going to shatter our very universe in the next five days....

DoT-- thanks for that quote. I am persuaded that Ezra is as dumb and naive as he is obnoxious. What a joke he is.

It looks like the National Science Foundation has been handing out grants for some unorthodox research projects, according to House Republicans.

This includes $700,000 in funding for a climate change musical.

Why do you even read these twits? Just as ol Satchel Page said "the social ramble ain't restful", reading these two clowns will only get you upset. Little Mattie and Ezra are living proof of the maxim that ignorance can be cured, but stupid is forever.

Kobe Bryant's comments on Trayvon Martin case draw Twitter ire

When Bryant was asked by the author of the article what he thought of the Miami Heat’s show of solidarity with Martin -- the team posed in hooded jackets like the one Martin was wearing the night he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in a Sanford, Fla., neighborhood -- Bryant said he didn't see how such support showed any "progress." 

 "So we want to advance as a society and a culture, but, say, if something happens to an African-American we immediately come to his defense? Yet you want to talk about how far we’ve progressed as a society? Well, we’ve progressed as a society, then don’t jump to somebody’s defense just because they’re African-American. You sit and you listen to the facts just like you would in any other situation, right? So I won’t assert myself.

Much of the reaction illustrates how many of liberal convictions, acquire the patina of religious dogma, there is no alternative to
their view, because one would call it heresy.

Go Kobe!

MarkO

Kobe was going to Duke, by the way. Yes, that Duke. The one that lost to Mighty Mercer. No. I do not have any idea where Mercer is located.

If I had proof that Obama was not born in the USA, the last place I would go with it is Federal Court.

Heh.

--This includes $700,000 in funding for a climate change musical.--

The website about the $700,000 Climate Change Musical (The Great Immensity) says It is a thrilling and timely production...a highly theatrical look into one of the most vital questions of our time: how can we change ourselves and our society in time to solve the enormous environmental challenges that confront us?

If you click here, you can hear one of the Show Stopping Tunes from the production: Margin of Error

Rodgers and Hammerstein they ain't, and from the look and sound of it, production wise, I think our line dancing IRS agents in Star Trek outfits probably gave us a better bang for our Federal buck.

Our Chitown friend has identified something sneering, condescending and stupid behind the NCAA NLRB ruling.

"NLRB ruling on NU football targets endowment more than rights. Shakowsky driven excercise in search of greater District Cash Sources. Evanston has long lusted to be able to tax largest land holder. Just the latest ploy.

Also signals the sense of desperation for cash flows on that side of the aisle."

Update your prog survival bracket: public sector pensions just trounced private academic endowments.

Narciso,

I'm thinking this Administration is probably considering funding some Ukranian theatrical production about the Russian takeover of Crimea as our next stern move against Putin. Fiddler On The Roof--This time, it's for keeps! That'll show 'em.

And having listened to that tune again from The Great Immensity, I think I can safely say that if these poor b@#$tards had chosen to Fund The Great Immensity instead of Springtime For Hitler, their money losing scheme would have worked like a charm.

"...the last place I would go with it is Federal Court."

You would start with maybe Alabama Superior? How about Fox News, National Review or the Wall Street Journal?

centralcal

Twitchy has a recap of Michelle Malkin tweets that seem plausible:

Why is Obama's FBI publicizing all of its raids/probes on Democrat politicians now? Answer: Clearing the decks before midterms.

Prediction: Obama/Holder's DOJ is saving up FBI goods on GOP corruptocrats for release right before election for maximum distraction/damage.

There's always an ulterior motive w/Obama/Holder DOJ. I see right thru this latest round of Corruption Crackdown Kabuki Theater. Don't you?

#QuestionTheTiming It's Chicago on the Potomac, people.

Threadkiller

Why not just start on JOM? It has yet to be proved one way or another here.

Clarice Feldman

So what are we "smarties" doing sitting here talking to each other when we could be applying for federal grants to put on productions on Obamacare and Climate Change? C'mon, JOM has TALENT.

Porchlight

Seems plausible to me too, centralcal.

Thugs.

The harassment of the Koch brothers is also frightening to contemplate. Once upon a time, meaning before 2009, American government officials did not publicly harass American private citizens using the full force of the state.

The really really disturbing part is that this is going to be par for the course for every Dem administration for the rest of history, assuming we survive this one.

MarkO

Why not here? Well, there is no actual evidence. Speculation, innuendo, belief, are not evidence. Attacking a PDF of a birth certificate does not begin to prove Obama was not born in America. Get me some credible Kenyan records. Photos. Newspaper clippings. Witnesses.

Damn. I was making a joke and I've been drawn in. Oh, well. What's a day without this fight?

Threadkiller

Damn. I was making a joke and I've been drawn in.


Welcome to my world.

Why don't they name the FBI agent involved, they were all fired up on going after the CIA interrogators, even though they found no grounds,

Threadkiller

Doesn't attacking the pdf prove that he hasn't proven where he was born?

Why are we tasked with proving where he was born?

Ignatz

LOL, TK. I saw that one coming.

Danube on iPad

The evidence I have described here would be sufficient to compel a finding of Hawaiian birth in any court in the land. The evidence of a "forgery" would never withstand cross.

But it's nice to get our daily dose of the Birther Report.

Iggy, wouldn't this guy be a better choice?

He's got the whole "It's not a lie if you believe it" thing down. And he actually is a musical theater guy, in fact won a Tony.

Bori

There's definitely a clearing of the decks about all these cases of the "unknown party" being filed now.

From what I have read about them, many were long-term investigations, rather, have them out now than leaks of the investigations leaking weeks before the election.

I think there are also other more sinister reasons imo, like sending a message to others to tow the line.

Another thing I notice is that all of them were in areas that were clearly blue-hells. This means the damage will be nominal, as those areas will remain blue-hells.

FBI sting reveals underworld, seamy history of San Francisco's storied Chinatown

SAN FRANCISCO – Beneath the strings of red paper lanterns and narrow alleyways of the nation's oldest Chinatown lies an underworld, a place with a history of opium dens, gambling houses and gangland murders.

Federal investigators say it's also where Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow operated a criminal empire while projecting a public image of community servant.

Let's not forget he's also a marine biologist so he's already more of a scientist than Mann.

When the Yee news broke, local talk radio had a guest on (some long-time Sacramento political reporter) who predicted more FBI stuff on the way. He said there has been an intense FBI investigation going on for 6 months now in Orange County.

Hey, Charlotte is not yet a blue hell---more like Detroit, circa 1962.
On our way, after Anthony Fox and Patrick Cannon, but before that we had 14 years of Republican now Gov. Pat McCory keeping our City Council on task.

Anthony Fox did leave us behind to take that Secretary of Transportation job. Very well qualified, as we do have buses and one track of light rail. Had something to do with hosting the Democratic Convention and forgiving the debt, I do believe.
