Ignatz,

The problem with Blodgett's D- presentation is his conflation of Medicaid and Medicare. An honest presentation would show the amount necessary in the current budget to bring SS and Medicare onto a sound actuarial footing. That would raise the deficit slightly but it would also allow a more honest discussion concerning the remedies necessary to bring that portion of the budget into balance.

I'd like to see legislation proposed denying Medicaid reimbursement to all "sanctuary" cities as a first step towards dealing with Medicaid. Establishing a new definition of "poverty" would be helpful as well. The current definition encourages sloth and poor choices rather than effort and personal responsibility and really requires remediation.

No where, he has given so much money to the Democrats, Obama, Clinton, Dodd,etc; they don't dare let it go anywhere.

Meanwhile, In California, things have gone so far downhill that the ACLU now controls all law enforcement actions related to illegal immigration.

"The leftist civil rights group that serves as a de facto branch of Obama’s Justice Department is ordering California law enforcement agencies to stop arresting illegal immigrants and ignore federal detainers usually placed on those with criminal convictions or deportation orders."

Nice link to Zombie, narc. Of all the demonstrably piss poor jobs the idiot academy does every year, the screw job on a lot of deserving documentaries done on shoestring budgets but brimming with integrity that don't even get past the gatekeepers is easily the worst. They should just eliminate the category or call it "Swill By People We Like".

I'll take corruption in Trenton for $300, Alex...

clarice,

Swarthmore may not have an astro-physics lab but it does have an engineering school, and a damn good one. Very unusual for a lib arts school. In fact, it is highly rated.

Haverford is also the venue for the United States Cricket Museum and the largest cricket library outside Lord's in London. Philadelphia was a hot bed of cricket in the 19th century. In fact, Merion started as a cricket club.

True, Captn, but it's rare that the arsonist

ordering California law enforcement agencies to stop arresting illegal immigrants

Um, what? What's their source of authority?

Janet

They should just eliminate the category or call it "Swill By People We Like".

Hahaha!

Pagar

Rob, "They are now a de facto arm of the DOJ" according to the article. The DOJ under Holder does whatever they want.
Laws/authority for actions means nothing to the them.

Just a few days ago we had an article about California police backing the unions so I don't think there is much doubt they don't pay much attention to laws/sources of authority either.

clarice

I know about Haverford and cricket, but it seems irrelevant to my point about Swarthmore (and top liberal arts schools like it) generally being inadequate for the needs of science majors . I expect , but am not certain ,that my point would also apply to math whizzes .For a number of students only a larger university can meet their needs.

Jane

Wasn't Swarthmore an all girls school back in the day?

Henry, are the police going to round up the fleebaggers?

Jane

Hey Charlie,

I got some notice that you had some contact with my facebook page. I cannot for the life of me access it, so if it was important send me an email.

clarice

No, Jane. You might be thinking of nearby Bryn Mawr.

PaulL

Capt. Hate,
I remember Chevy Chase's talk show disaster. It lasted but a few weeks, didn't it? He tried to do his stupid fall routines like from Sat Night Live but they never worked right, timing was off or something. And holy moly his interviews were the worst I have ever seen by anyone.

macphisto

almost as bad as Magic Johnson's talk show, which really was the worst evening talker i've ever seen. so bad it made Dennis Miller's TV show look good.

Henry

Jane, no police, just like no police yesterday in Kenosha when they met with Fitzgerald. Just an appeal to duty.

Swarthmore (Hicksite Quaker) was always coed. Haverford and Bryn Mawr (Orthodox Quaker) were paired Men only and Women only until they went coed in the 70s. Older meeting houses retain this split with a single meeting room vs paired single sex meeting rooms.

Captain Hate

PaulL, it may have only lasted 2 episodes it was so freakin' bad [edit; per wiki, and the writeup there is pretty funny, it lasted 5 miserable weeks]. I just remember watching one, maybe the first one, out of morbid curiosity because I've never enjoyed those SNL dweebs; Goldie Hawn was on iirc and the show was just cratering horribly to the point where he tried getting the audience to clap along to something lame and I figured the flopsweat had soaked through all garments by then.

macphisto, I remember when the Magic Johnson show first came on; I liked Magic but thought it was a really dumbass idea. I was visiting my Hatettes in NYC and catching some music; I'd go in the subway and there were posters of Magic's smiling face that the local kids had already defaced and I'm thinking "This isn't a good omen". Then he made the huge mistake of listening to Howard Stern's crew of idiots' criticism of it and inviting them on which was pretty much the end of the road for it. Too bad but somebody gave Magic some horrible advice or didn't know how to tell him "No".

Stephanie

Irony pegged at 11 in the LUN

According to the State of Wisconsin Investment Board (SWIB), the Wisconsin Retirement System owns $5.5 million in Georgia Pacific corporate bonds. (Georgia Pacific is owned by Koch Industries.) This is the retirement system in which the overwhelming majority of state and local employees participate. These are the pension benefits that public employees are trying so hard to protect.

So here’s the challenge: Explain to a Wisconsin state worker that they are the ones helping fund the Koch brothers. Then sit back and watch the fun.

Captain Hate

LOL Stephanie; in the west I can hear the sound of tiny heads exploding.

Jim Ryan

Rich,

No, I majored in philosophy. But I took a year of astro and a year of physics and worked at both of the observatories for a couple years. One observatory was a 1906 vintage, the other a 1980's one. Did you major in astro?

I just bought the new standard undergrad astrophysics textbook, to see if I can get through it. Clicked on the guy's website and of course he's a big lib.

Rob Crawford

They'll just start a divestment campaign.

Hmmm.... I wonder how long it will be before the lefties have boycotted their way into a corner, leaving all the profitable investments for the sane.

Rob C: I love that! Great liberal investment advice! From your lips to the ears of the "sane."

laura

Jim,
Have you heard of Stephen Barr, astrophysicist out of the Univ of Delaware? I only ask because he tackles cosmology and has written a book entitled Modern Physics and Ancient Faith (2003)
He believes that modern science has adopted materialism as a foundation that puts it at war with religion. Rather than leaving the metaphysical to the realm of faith science has decided it can answer all questions of truth.
I have not read the book, but have read several interesting articles he has written for First Things. Anyway, thought it might be the sort of thing that would interest you.

Melinda Romanoff

Rich + Jim-

I got to wrap wire in some of the bigger magnetohydrodynamic electrical generators. Also made some small MRI devices proving, at the same time, the need for hardened commercial computers in the late 1970's.

Three times I proved it.

Then I learned what neodymium lasers can do to cinder block, which is unusually radioactive, BTW.

That was like those Arizona boycotters in LA, who didn't realize that 25% of their power supply came from there; 'irony it's whats' for dinner'

Former Gov Granholm's legal extortion scheme has been dumped:

DETROIT (AP) -- The state of Michigan will stop deducting union dues from thousands of people who provide child care at home, an official announced Tuesday, ending an arrangement created under a previous governor that sparked lawsuits over whether mandatory membership violates free speech rights.

Under the policy change, the 16,500 providers would keep millions of dollars in union dues that had gone to United Auto Workers and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. The providers, none of whom are on the state payroll, receive government subsidies for watching children from low-income families.

Melinda Romanoff

clarice-

That's an SEIU scam here.

clarice

It was outrageous.

bgates

lawsuits over whether mandatory membership violates free speech rights

(The SEIU has a habit of not buying health insurance for its members here, too.)

RichatUF

Mel-

That's pretty cool. Were you at a university lab before?

clarice-

I think CA does something similiar with caregivers as well.

maryrose

Holder's comment today about "my people" tells you all you have to know about his and Obama's interpretation of what constitues justice in this country. From the Pigford reparations to lawsuits against Arizona and harassing Sheriff Arpaio we can see how they are on the sideof blacks illegal aliens and against DOMA. This puts them out of the mainstream and as Matthews says they are Different and the Opposite of what most Americans profess to be. So sorry we are stuck with them for 2 more years.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Do you think they just have these comments in a cut and paste file somewhere? I *swear* I've seen exactly that comment before, word for word.

Chaco: They all learned to read by rote, what do you expect.

Captain Hate

I remember when they unionized the child care providers without their consent and thought WTF. Granholm was such a sleaze to oversee that garbage.

Speaking of Michigan I was about to watch Detroit 1-8-7 when bottom-feeding ABC sticks in a **special** 20/20 featuring "the interview everyone wants to see with Charlie Sheen". What a pile of garbage; it can't be 'everybody' that wants to see it because I sure as hell don't. Plus I just got a call from a friend who told me his dad died (not unexpectedly but still...) so I need 20/20 like an infestation of bedbugs and lice.

Melinda Romanoff

clarice-

WSJ article on the subject (might be behind subscription, sorry) and it was 21K new members for a total of 45K.

Rich-

That was my college (1000 souls), we had 4 physics majors, and 6 professors, if you counted the Dean of Faculty, and no higher Math Department (long story). We got to play at Argonne a lot. The lab we wrapped wire in was like building the TRON scene with the digitizer was shot in. HUGE.

Frank Rich been mentioned yet? "New York Times columnist Frank Rich is leaving the newspaper to join New York magazine as an essayist, ending a three-decade career at the Times."

Tee Hee. Of course, it may not be true since it was reported in the Times.

So sorry to hear that, Captain, yet another appearance by the Dark Lord Rove, on Hannity, gives me a similar nauseous feeling, after his
recent 'brilliant' interview with Hagan,

Melinda Romanoff

Cap'n-

I'll trade you. We got the PBS production of An Evening Of Motown At The White House.

Even the Obama-bot spouse threw the arms up with the butchery of the music. Painful.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

I applied to both Swarthmore and Bucknell, got accepted, but opted for school out of state, mostly because my best friend was going there. However, Swarthmore houses the premier library of Quaker records and when we lived in Baltimore, I used to drive over there every couple of months for a day's worth of research. My paternal Grandmother went there, but I'm not sure for how long. She was studying at their music school, but that was back just before the turn of the last century (or whatever, it was mid-1890s). They had cotillions at U of Penna. and would invite some of the ladies of Swarthmore. My Grandfather's brother, who was a med student there, was her escort and he had invited his brother down from Allegheny College for the weekend. The rest is history, as they say.

Melinda Romanoff

Sara-

I meant to post this free, little site earlier that clarice has gotten me addicted to, thankyouverymuch. Registering is free, and worth it (it keeps track of what you like, and don't, with no ads (except rarely at 1st launch)). Headphones make it easy to tune out, when you need it.

Tea Baggers Suck

Funny, ain't it?

Tea-Baggers kick the fiscal can down the road just like their targeted opponents.

Yes, intestinal fortitude is not their forte'
any more than any other pol who wants to keep his job.

A two-week furlough is not evidence of
the commitment to fiscal responsibility.

Nary a word about it here though.

Heh.

Gawd, I love the Narcisolator!

Captain Hate

Mel, have you ever seen a DVD of "Standing in the Shadows of Motown"? I may have mentioned it here before and don't want to take up TM's space if I have.

Anyway that would beat what you described.

Jim Ryan

Laura, haven't heard of that book, thanks. Putting it in my Amazon shopping list. I think that science should be defined epistemologically and should not be taken to entail any metaphysical commitments. So, I guess I agree with Barr.

Captain Hate

narc, Rove and a few trolls got batted around at Weasel Zippers yesterday and today

My caseworker had me thrown into the drunk tank last night after I groped her. I saw my cousin today but he abruptly crossed to the other side of the street. I live in my own filth.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Whoa! Althouse is saying that Meade came home with a new video shot inside the courthouse and she won't post it. Apparently, some of those left are so sleep deprived, they have become dangerously unstable. She is pleading with people to no longer encourage those still there to stop hanging on, they've done enough, go home. She is saying that there are some who desperately need help and may even need help on how to leave the building, they are so out of it.

There is a video up at HotAir showing some genuine madness there at the capitol.

Rob Crawford

Free speech? Win the Future?

A reporter who doesn't know that "freedom of association" is also part of the 1st Amendment.

bgates

You know, Rob, that case would be a great opportunity for some living constitutionalist to revive Third Amendment jurisprudence, on the grounds that the text must forbid a requirement to sustain a hostile force if there are any penumbras emanating from it at all. (Redcoats, reds, what's the difference?)

Question for the lawyers: Is "I'd like to emanate her penumbras" something that is said with any frequency in legal circles?

Sara (Pal2Pal)

I don't know if this is reliable or not.

Liberty Chick tweeted:

BREAKING: Dem Senator Timothy Cullen has just returned to #WI tonight. WI-14 is now WI-13 #teaparty #wiunion #tcot

Brad Fallon

He is so smart! One I really admire! Keep it up!

Janet

Here is the video DoT mentioned at HotAir with the Dems attacking a GOP Senator.

Seeing these protests makes me so mad at the lies told about the March 20th Tea Party. The Tea Party gatherings were so nice, that the Dems/MFM had to make up some unruly behavior story.

Janet

Another point about Eric "my people" Holder - Is he willing to enforce our laws? If he is unwilling, then he needs to step down. I don't care what happened in the past...it is not his job to seek revenge or dole out indulgences for events in the past.
If he wants to do that, he can (join Jesse Jackson's organization or hook up with Shabazz)....but he shouldn't be Attorney General with that attitude.

Janet

along the same lines...Bending the Law for Social Justice.

"Social justice"...those words are poison for our country. 20 years from now, can my kids get "social justice" for the unequal way the law is being applied now? Even if we aren't related to the "whites" in Seattle, I will assume we can get in on the injustice mantra just because of our skin pigment. Hopefully there will be a big Pigford-like settlement for my kids.

These tribal-like divisions are the ruin of many countries. Never forgetting the past & forever seeking revenge & retribution leads nowhere. I thought America was about individuals, the here & now, blind justice, equal protection....

Sara (Pal2Pal)

OMG. I just finished ready the Daily Caller article: Congressional Bosses from Hell: Shiela Jackson Lee. Good grief. A must read.

bunkerbuster

A lot of conservatives are whip-smart and well-enough moral. They're still wrong on the issues I care about.
Don't identity conservatives realize that by confessing their fantasy that liberal equals dumb and/or immoral and/or crazy, they are confessing that they lack the courage of their own convictions?
So what if liberals are perfectly moral, perfectly sane geniuses, if you actually buy the conservative ideology, you're happy to confront them on that turf alone.

pagar

"That's an SEIU scam here."

I believe if one checks the records, it is a scam where ever SEIU or a union by another name has managed to get it implemented.

pagar

Sara, I meant to ask yesterday when you mentioned something about a staffer for the political figure you worked for being a Registered Democrat. Do these elected officials not know the backgrounds of the people that work for them?
It seems to me that would create a logical reason why so many Republicans turn in to Democrat lite as soon as they get to Washington.

henry

"Dem Senator Timothy Cullen has just returned to #WI tonight. WI-14 is now WI-13 #teaparty #wiunion #tcot"

apparently just a rumor per morning radio. the thinking is Cullen (the last to leave the state, least dependent on union money) would be likely to return, but no one wants to be the quorum all by himself.

Extraneus

I wonder what would happen to a fleebagger who decided to return to work at this point. Even if they all come back together, Walker should offer them police protection.

DebinNC

Offer them police protection? Did anyone who watched the video Janet and DoT referenced see any police around? The belligerent mob chased the guy to the entrance. Finding it blocked by protestors facing him and with no police observed inside the glass doors, the guy, surrounded and without protection, proceeded for a considerable time before an orange T-shirted Dem "rescued" him. The Dem seemed more concerned with protecting the bogus "we're peaceful" meme than his so-called "friend".

Where were the police during this episode?

Extraneus

Yeah, I saw it. Imagine what they'd do to a turncoat senator who came back to form a quorum?

Melinda Romanoff

Deb-

Recall that the Counties were pulled in favor of State Troopers for the Interior of the Capitol. Could be a turf issue, combined with a concerted effort towards a lack of cooperation.

Melinda Romanoff

Oh, and if it hasn't been said yet, here's to hoping that Newt discovers the accounting term: FIFO.

jimmyk

A question: On Greta last night they were saying the fleebaggers were not getting their paychecks, because of a rule passed that they had to come to the capitol to pick them up. But will the back checks be waiting for them when they do return, or are they actually forfeiting their pay? I sure hope it's the latter.

jimmyk-

Sara- You beat me to posting that Lee story. The Secret Service aspect is just mind-boggling.

Clarice- Thanks for pointing out that Michigan home health story.

There was an inaugural meeting yesterday at the National Press Club of the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading with all these foundations and funders. Arne Duncan spoke about the need to get at the "babies".

We have consistently refused to implement research proven reading instruction in this country and now the government is using that fact to justify going after children from "birth" on so they can be better readers later. That recognition, I hope, is why the Reps defunded Obama's Striving Readers Program completely.

Can you imagine the SEIU boondoggle of using the prospect of reading parity to justify summer programs, after school programs, home interventions, health care including mental health, training for parents, "standards, assessments, and curricula from birth to third grade"?

You read the list of all the Casey Foundation wants to see the government doing from birth on and it's hard not to see a union boon and the fact that only middle-class families need worry of the cost of another child. The report also describes how the Feds since the Dems took Congress in 2007 have seeded most states to set up Early Learning Councils to push for programs from birth on.

With such extensive supports of every aspect of early child rearing, we truly see what Obama means by "cradle to career".

If I hadn't read Kurtz's book it's hard to see how any socialist state could be talking of doing more. I think Obama wants just enough of a private sector to bring in money for his statist plans.

DebinNC

Another interesting WI mob video. In this one a pro-Walker person is confronted by two anti-Walker folks who seem to believe she has no right to ignore them. They demand she explain the reasoning behind her sign, and won't take no for an answer. Eventually the quiet lady and the quiet man taking the pics are surrounded by shouting goons with no police in sight.
There's also a guy incessantly blowing an ear-piercing whistle right in their faces. I guess there are no noise ordinances in Madison or police who ordinarily issue citations for breaking them.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Pagar: In today's world, I'm sure the security checks for staff are much stricter than they were when I worked there. However, I doubt much has really changed. When a Member of Congress retires or gets voted out, those staff are usually first hired by incoming new Members, if for no other reason than their experience. They wield a good deal of power, since most new members don't have a clue what they are doing in the beginning.

I think my boss had a slight advantage in the fact that she could come home every night since the edges of our District were within 25 miles of DC. We had the allotted number of DC staff that took care of all legislative business, we had two constituent service offices, one the main office, one a satellite office at the far end of the District, plus a block down the street we had our fully staffed campaign office. Add to that, the Congresswoman had turned the lower level of her home into offices where the bookkeeper and her personal assistant worked. Because of proximity to DC, all these offices were within a max hours drive from Washington.

I say slight advantage because it was far easier to coordinate both schedules and messages when everyone was so close and knew each other so well. I've dealt with offices out here on the West Coast and one in Indiana where there was barely a single staffed office "back home" and the people in the home office didn't have a clue what anyone else in their organization was doing or supposed to do. Distance creates problems we never had to face.

One other thing, my boss was a Republican who got elected with 70% or more of the vote in a District with registration that ran 11 to 1 Democrat to Republican. She put constituent service at the top of her list of responsibilities and her constituents knew it. She was a bitch of a boss to work for, especially hard on the women, but at the same time, if they chips were down for someone in what she called her care, she would go out of her way to help. She wasn't adverse to calling you in the middle of the night and yelling get your butt out of bed and into the office, usually to handle some problem in another time zone half a world away dealing with one of her constituents.

Darrell Issa is my Congressman now and he is well liked here at home, but he is rarely here. When we first moved here, I tried to call his office and I was told the number wasn't in service, so I had to call DC. They gave me another local number, but the person I spoke to couldn't answer any of my questions. This is not the way our office worked nor would by boss have tolerated it for even a day. But Issa can't be here and chairing a hearing 3000 miles a way at the same time. He can't come home every night and sit and return local calls. His local staff can't jump in the car and take a quick meeting with their counterpart at the VA or Defense or some other agency. And it is even harder for him to keep his finger on the pulse of his staff back home or his individual constituents. Multiply that out over all the Districts not in close proximity to DC and you can see how difficult it is for some to keep tabs on their own organizations.

Jack is Back!

If you check in early: my comment re Haverford was to another post on Haverford not yours on Swartmore.

Deb-

Ann and Meade have been doing the work the MFM should have been. I may disagree with her views here and again, but she does go for the full spectrum, no matter the issue. That, in and of itself, earns my respect.

DebinNC

Ann and Meade have been doing the work the MFM should have been.

I admire them too, but my issue is the lack of police. These videos show that things in WI can get ugly fast, yet police don't seem to be in place to diffuse these situations. Some heads should roll, but I'm seeing no news stories about the dereliction of duty.

Narciso,

I wonder how the lefties fit "sell your cloak and buy a sword" into their religious fantasy? Does it mean that defense is off the table? Sensing's "count the cost" remark in comments would be very offensive to the prog churchmen - if they were intelligent enough to understand it.

Sara, thank you so much for that report. That is what really worries me about so many of these Congresspersons and their aides. I think the possibility that the aides are controlling the votes of the Congressperson in many cases is very real. For a good many years, my Senator was Sen Thurmond. He/his office provided good services to his constituents in most cases, but there is no way he was on top of things in his last terms.

But then you have California, not only a long long way from DC, but here we sit with two Senators out of the bowels of lib land in and around the San Francisco Bay area and its evil spawn along the coasts of No. Calif. We have no Senate representation for So. Cal at all. And No. Cal and So. Cal are about as different as say New York and Utah.

Better yet, as an elected official, I'm willing to wager he violated his oath.

And thus, we see the transnational socialists dropping the "trans-" from their description. In an effort to shore up their support, they chose a convenient demon, miscast what that person says, take the wrong lesson from his statements, and become what (they claim) they hate the most.

Next thing you know, the left will be assaulting people who disagree with them, and yammering about "my people" and the need to "civilize white people"...
