Welcome to the end of a rather tumultuous week! Each day brings with it new surprises…and most of them NOT good! It’s a wonder we manage as best we can!…
Let’s take a look at what’s going on, shall we?!
“Can you smell that? It is the smell of panic in the air. As I have noted before, when financial markets catch up to economic reality they tend to do so very rapidly. …Over the past several years they have been grossly twisted and distorted by the Federal Reserve and by the other major central banks around the globe. Did the central bankers really believe that there wouldn’t be a great price to pay for messing with the markets? The behavior that we have been watching this week is the kind of behavior that one would expect at the beginning of a financial panic. ..” – THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE BLOG
“If you tweet a picture from your living room using your smartphone, you’re sharing far more than your new hairdo or the color of the wallpaper. You’re potentially revealing the exact coordinates of your house to anyone on the Internet.
The GPS location information embedded in a digital photo is an example of so-called metadata, a once-obscure technical term that’s become one of Washington’s hottest new buzzwords…” – McClatchy DC
“I think the Republican House was put on this earth to save us from huge pieces of comprehensive legislation like this that I think are not well designed, would not work well. If we want to solve particular parts of the immigration problem, we can solve them. We can have more high-tech workers, if you want. We could have more guest workers for agriculture, if that’s necessary. We could legalize the people who are here. This 1,000-page bill, which is now probably 1,100 page bill–and much more expensive bill–because of this amendment, is not a good idea..” – William Kristol @ The Weekly Standard
“After months of reassurances that the ObamaCare exchanges would be running by Oct. 1, it turns out they’re well behind schedule. Truth becomes an even rarer commodity in the Obama administration.” – Investor’s Business Daily
“The president of the Chicago Teachers Union <Karen Lewis> charges that racism and “rich white people” are to blame for the immense financial and educational crisis facing the Chicago Public Schools.” – Investor’s Business Daily
“They’re taking food out of the mouths of babies,” …”Two million families would lose their food under the bill, much less under the Southerland amendment.”
This is just the tip of the iceberg!
We have financial markets collapsing after they’ve been propped up by the Fed for so long. Never mind that this created a false sense of security!
We have a federal government essentially able to monitor nearly every move you make and every word you say and type!
We have moronic Senators, Lindsey Graham (R-SC) among them, practically breathless to craft a piece of crap immigration “reform” bill! Never mind the feds have REFUSED to enforce existing law on nearly EVERY aspect of immigration and securing the border. It doesn’t take a genius to see what the result of this disastrous bill will do!
We have embarrassments like Chicago teacher’s union prez, Karen Lewis, whose failed leadership is in dire need of scapegoats. She simply has to play the race card. THAT will garner support from the fools that don’t have a CLUE on solving the dire problems of public education!
We have the continuing, insipid, stupidity of Congressional Democrats like Nancy Pelosi, who resort to literal lunacy when it comes to spending. Never mind that there are a RECORD NUMBER OF AMERICANS ON FOOD STAMPS! HER PARTY’S SOLUTION: SPEND MORE!
It’s all of this sort of garbage that has placed this nation in the mire it now finds itself. Self serving so called “leaders” are the enemy we all must face. They have “led” us down a road to a situation from which we may never recover. Until more of us wake up, this stuff will continue!
