Mark, right now the upside of the Thunder is just incredible. In winning four games in a row against the Spurs, they beat a team who hadn't lost in over a month and were loaded with veteran championship level talent. In Durant, Harden and Westbrook they have 3 young players who can create their shots at any time and are almost in their range as soon as they cross halfcourt. They have an insane shot blocker in Ibaka and have added some veteran guile in Fisher and Perkins. The only thing that can hurt them is Westbrook's play can still be erratic. Plus they're incredibly fun to watch and their fans might be the most enthusiastic in the league.

narciso, apparently in political consulting, nothing succeeds like failure.

I have always said we'll know there's gender equality when women as untalented and stupid as top male campaign consultants are hired to run campaigns.

Notice Double Douche does not mention the EPA, or the TSA or the IRS in his little strawman argument. Police Fire and Teachers, all local employees and the most popular government positions except maybe the military. But whoever said it upthread said it right, the crazies smeared dung all over the teachers union in Wisconsin with their tactics and antics and somehow Mahlon whats his name, firefighter got nowhere in the LT Gov recall. HMMMM

Rob I agree with everything you said.

Remember, Obama himself said that in his very brief foray into the private sector he felt he was "behind enemy lines."

I hope Americans learn from this experience.

"You think that anyone supporting public education, police forces, fire departments, and the national highway system is a socialist?"

Heavens no. I believe that someone would have to be listed on the rolls of an actual socialist party, like the New Party in Illinois, before I would ever consider them to be socialist. The President would have to have enrolled himself in a socialist party quite some time ago to actually earn the socialist label.

The Kendonesian commie President, like you, is much too smart to have done so.

Eric Holder claims he was unaware that photo ID was required to enter the FBI, DOJ and federal courthouses.

At a House Judiciary Committee oversight hearing Thursday, Rep. Dan Lungren (R-Calif.) asked Holder about the practice, which has been standard procedure at most, if not all, federal courthouses for the last decade or so.

"If I were to go to the federal courthouse here in D.C., either as a party or as an attorney, wouldn’t I have to show a government-issued photo ID?" Lungren asked.

"That’s not been my experience, here in DC. I don’t--you know," Holder replied.

"Some federal courts—are you aware that’s required in some federal courts in this land?" Lungren said.

"I don’t know," Holder replied.

"Is your Justice Department investigating the discriminatory effect of those laws?" Lungren asked, after citing other places where one is told to show ID, like the airport and even when visiting the Justice Department itself.

Rob, Captain Hate, Although Ace and I have had our disagreements; I’ve got to stick up for him as one of the most talented bloggers on the internet.

This current Kimberlin deal is as serious as a heart attack. I don’t blame Ace for trying to get everyone educated and excited about this very real threat.

jwest, I give ace credit for his alerts against Kimberlin, as you said, and his willingness to let the moron horde generally have the run of the place and swallowing his ego and stating that Breitbart never read the posts but went right to the comments.

Union/OWS Stalkers for Obama? That could be the next gold mine for the campaign. "We crapped on your police cars. We trashed your parks. We occupied your state houses. We groped your naughty bits (TSA). And We're comin' to Gitcha."

I think that will resonate well with the American people. That; the suddenly ubiquitous drone programs everyone is so eager for, and the incredibly invasive data mining.

Which party is running the current administration?

Danube of Thought

Obama's huge mistake here was expecting Americans to understand that government needs to exist.

Utter nonsense. Every American understands that government at all levels needs to exist. The sensible among them know that the amount of government at every level should be what those who are taxed at that level to provide it are willing to pay. It is quite insane to believe that taxpayers in South Carolina should subsidize the utterly absurd excesses the California legislature has bestowed upon its public employees. And it is even more insane to suppose, as Obama evidently does, that the number of government employees should be increased, not by reason of any need for more of them, but to give people jobs.

The right-wing fairy tale is that the answer to the question "How much government do we need?" is always "Less," which is also the answer to the question "What's the proper level of taxation?"

Depends on where and when you ask the question. The answer is clearly "yes" to both in California, New York and Illlinois, which is why taxpayers are fleeing; probably not so in Oklahoma or Nevada, where my guess is that both are just about right.

Danube of Thought

It's also a gaffe to say that government workers are paid in American dollars just like private-sector workers, and that they spend these American dollars at private-sector stores, so if we pay them, they use the money to help stimulate the same economy that's stimulated by the spending of private-sector workers.

Why ask them to work, then? All that counts is that we give them money so that they can stimulate the economy, right?.

The difference, of course, is that the private sector worker gets money to spend because the market values what he does sufficiently to pay him for it. The government worker gets paid because politicians appropriate other people's money and give it to him, regardless of the value of his work.

We're tired of it. If you doubt that, see Wisconsin. See San Diego. See San Jose.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy:

Tallahassee, Florida - 10 News has learned of allegations of homosexual affairs, a governor trying to kiss another man, and drunken escapades by former Governor Charlie Crist.

These allegations come in the form of a Florida Department of Law Enforcement Investigative Report in the Republican Party Chair Jim Greer saga.

Jim Greer is facing criminal charges and is set to go to trial on July 30 for allegedly paying himself to raise money for the Republican Party of Florida. Greer maintains that former Governor Charlie Crist approved the deal.

Now, discovery documents released point to allegations that as Governor, Crist paid two men to leave the state to hide his homosexuality and that he was a drunk and a liar.

We now have proof from Obama's membership in a Socialist organization that he is in a socialist. All we need to do now is get the word out there. If someone asks Romney if Obama is a socialist he should answer in the affirmative. If he is asked if Obama is a Muslim he should give Hillary's answer and let Obama try and prove it by going to church again.

From 1900 to 2010, government receipts per capita increased 79 times, and decreased 31 times.

The obvious question to sentient beings is how much is enough to fund necessary government operations, and how much is unnecessary or inappropriate redistribution of private wealth?

A Conservative who answers "less" can argue their position with facts because we have a long history of effective government that managed on less than this.

The numbers below come from this site.

Total Fed State Local Revenue Inflation Adjusted PER CAPITA:

1900: $ 181 per capita
1925: $ 866
1945: $ 4,304
1965: $ 5,809
1985: $ 9,218
2005: $14,360

How about for every new cop, firefighter or teacher hired, we lay off a government employee in a different job, such that there's no net increase in the payroll?

Wouldn't that be a win-win?

Why shouldn't the lights be turned off in a gangrenous pustule of a Blue Hell such as Detroit? Any surviving producers, after being raped by the UAW and plundered by AFSCME, have fled.

Does anyone expect parasites to pay the light bill? Aside from Pitzer College graduates indoctrinated by Dana Gilbert Ward, obviously.

I've said it before..we should turn Detroit into a national park to industrial unions. Let whoever stays there move into a small enclave to serve the tourists..Have guided tours of the large crumbling industrial edifices..let the wolves, deer , buffalos , coyotes and bobcats replenish the place. It's right on the border with Canada; on Lake Michigan--plenty of room for hunting and fishing camp concessions.

Speaking of Detroit:

The pre-WW2 and post-WW2 photo montages of Detroit comparing it to Berlin and Hiroshima/Nagasaki are striking.

I noticed in Massie's new tome on Catherine, that the 'Potemkin Village' is debunked, as in Winik, pg 490, pointing out there were several significant observers, but then as now, it seems 'print the legend' bury the truth' is the Watchword.

Speaking of carving sacred cows, Moyar does that very skillfully in his review of both Klaidman and Sanger's new books in the Journal. He notices for example, there are few on the record intelligence and military

Btw, why should teachers be public employees?

If every school-age child's parents was given $10K/yr to pay for that child's eduction at a school of their choice, a huge new industry would blossom, with competition driving quality and continual improvement. Failing schools would be replaced by new, better ones, and the average kid would get a better education than he or she does in the public school system.

Another win-win!

No real update on my daughter. She continues to be sick every morning. E-coli has been ruled out because of no fever. I am super busy today so I will check back this evening, but I want to express my opinion that socialized medicine is here.

The pediatrician and the ER both said to see a GI specialist. So my 2nd appointment with the pediatrician was canceled and I called the specialist, at Children's Hospital. After pressing "2" for English, I was treated to a multilingual menu. (Maybe the dummies at the crosswalks have it right; just keep pressing the button so you have something to do while you wait for the signal.)

I would like to say the receptionist was multilingual, but I can't. She did not seem to know the English language. "net poinmen July settenteeth."

"Is my daughter supposed to vomit every morning for over a month?"

"July settenteeth, you wan oh no?"

"I seem to have fallen into a Joe Isuzu commercial, and I can't get out."

"OK, you go mergency, they help now."

I will be going back to the pediatrician on Monday. It is crazy.

In a related story:

"Unknown to most consumers, many hospitals and physicians offer steep discounts for cash-paying patients regardless of income. But there's a catch: Typically you can get the lowest price only if you don't use your health insurance.

That disparity in pricing is coming under fire from people like Snyder, who say it's unfair for patients who pay hefty insurance premiums and deductibles to be penalized with higher rates for treatment.

The difference in price can be stunning. Los Alamitos Medical Center, for instance, lists a CT scan of the abdomen on a state website for $4,423. Blue Shield says its negotiated rate at the hospital is about $2,400.

When The Times called for a cash price, the hospital said it was $250"

I'm sorry to hear that TK. It's curious that the pain is only in the morning on rising. It's hard to imagine why that would be the case if it is due to some blockage or to appendicitis.

Disgruntled Californian

Dublin Dave, I've had more than a few school teachers in my family--two aunts, a sister, some cousins who are teacher's aides. Several of my high school classmates went on to be teachers--all of this here in California.

But--California is either at the top or nearly at the top of all states (just 50--not 57--but nevertheless all states). And our education results are maybe 49th out of the nation. Hellfire, either Alabama or Mississippi ranks in front of California!

Paying a lot of money for teachers doesn't seem to produce results.

We like results. If theCalifornia public schools were say a law or accounting firm, we'd fire the firm and go get another, better provider of services.

So don't tell me we need MORE of something that is simply not working.

Disgruntled Californian

Oops--product of a California education;
I meant to say that California spends more on its public education--on a cost per pupil basis--than nearly every other state in the union--and its results are at the bottom of the heap.

If so, doctors normally recommend a lamb and rice diet because no one is allergic to those foods. If that should work , after a few days you can begin adding other foods one by one to pin down what she's allergic to.

Rick, the EUtopian model was doomed from the outset; even the pages of the New York Review of Books, which lefties like to cite as a "middle of the road" gazette, noted the seeds of problems. It required willful ignorance of their reporting that in the beginning the financial houses of all the member countries didn't adhere to the minimum standards for inclusion; yet the bureaucrats gleefully took them anyway. What could go wrong?

"--and its results are at the bottom of the heap."

Well, sure, if you're going to use outdated metrics regarding ability to perform so called cognitive tasks. Wake up - the true measure of success is the one approved by Pitzer College. Every one of its graduates feels as if he possesses superior special knowledge, unavailable to those who waste their time on mundane tasks such as reading or writing or addition or subtraction.

If you don't believe me, ask them, just remember to pass them a feather when you do. They are uniformly unable to speak without a feather in their hand.

Thanks for linking that review, narc; like Nooner's parakeet liner, it shows up a day earlier online than in the dead tree.

Clarice, we really feel that the problem is allergy related. There is confirmed celiac with my older brother. My dad may have suffered from celiac also, but he was never diagnosed prior to his passing. My mom tailored meals that were less upsetting to his stomach. A Sicilian cooking "wheat free?" Talk about true love!

The abdominal pain is the kicker. Half an hour after the vomiting she is pain free. Not a hint.

CCal, we have tried to elevate the head of her bed. She has always been a restless sleeper. Sleeping properly lasts no more than an hour before she becomes all twisted.

TK, your experience and the similarity it bears to my younger Hatette's mysterious shoulder pains (and its resolution by having her curtail her dairy consumption) lead me to believe that medicine is as much an art as a science.

Rick Ballard

AliceH,

Thanks for the revenue summary. It would be amusing to do data table presentations in rebuttal of the dimwitted assertions made regarding public service employment.

For instance - three strikes sentencing increased the need for prison guards but the outcome reduced the need for police officers yet police employment to population ratios haven't fallen. Why not?

Or - the number of teachers required is a function of the K-12 population with tons of research showing minimal benefit to reducing class size below 22-25. Is the K-12 population growing or shrinking and does enrollment at teaching colleges reflect in any way the demographic reality which should govern appropriate levels?

Or - Changes made in building codes over the past thirty-five years have reduced fire losses substantially. Has fire department staffing been reduced to reflect the declining need?

Data is readily available for all three situations. In fact, the education area has a surfeit of data available and none of it points to a need for "more" of anything. It points to "less" and not a little less, a lot less.

Threadkiller

No history of Crohn's, that we know of CH.

The whole week seemed to be a waste of time. The probiotic has lessened the severity of the episodes, leading us to believe we are on the right track.

No other specialist have been contacted, Ig. We were hoping to have a better diagnosis from the "professionals" that we have already talked to.

I am reminded of an old trade joke.

What is the difference between a doctor, a lawyer, and a mechanic?

A doctor practices medicine, a lawyer practices law, and a mechanic isn't allowed to practice anything. He has to get it right the first time.

Don't be too rough on them TK. The wonders of genetic diversity produce many diagnostic problems.

Well, tk, the problem is that most illnesses start out with the same or similar symptoms and therefore most doctors start with an assumption that the symptoms are of the most usual cause. It often takes a while to sort out whether that's the case.

"it should concern everyone that right now – all across America – tens of thousands of teachers are getting laid off. In Pennsylvania alone, there are 9,000 fewer educators in our schools today than just a year ago. In Ohio, the number is close to 7,000."

It certainly doesn't concern me. Teachers are getting laid off because, with the elaborate benefit packages they have been granted by legislatures in return for union contributions, they cost more than the various states are willing to pay them. To use "federal money""--that is, money taken from people in other states--to keep the gravy train rolling is immoral.

The day of reckoning is here: live within your means. And stop whining....

The pain is at 8:00, as you look at her bellybutton, and about 3 in from the center of the bellybutton.

The joke isn't so much to trash doc, and lawyers, as it is to put a perspective of what we have gotten used to expecting from the people that fix our cars. A car is not so far off from a human body anymore. The multiple computers constantly adapt to the driver, the environment, and much more.

There is one major difference. The car can't say "it hurts here." Mechanics just hook up the "code reading thingy" and are expected to have the solution right out of the gate.

Did you know that a car uses less fuel, at a higher altitude, to maintain a proper air/fuel ratio? To accomplish that, a balancing act of information, from half a dozen sensors, is run through a logarithm. The logarithm is proprietary, so it has to be reverse engineered if you want to know what you are dealing with.

Replace the wrong sensor and the court, while practicing law, says you own the job because you were obligated to fix the car properly. No extra charges, for the most part, from there on out.

When all is said and done, Team News does an expose on how auto repair is a criminal enterprise. In the mean time AutoZone scans the car for free so the vehicle owner can replace the wrong part on their own.

Cars are either the largest, or second largest, investment in a persons lifetime, so nobody puts up with their car being a guinea pig.
