    Vanity | '16-Dec-2014 | Ron Pickrell
    For what it's worth, the Taliban kill 126 children, claiming that education is poison. In a related note, the very word Taliban comes from the root word Talib, meaning student. They were created in schools, armed themselves with the certainty that they therefore understood everything, and formed the organization "The students". The only reason I post this is that I haven't seen this remarked upon yet. With such astonishing hipocrisy, it must be that the Taliban are an offshoot of progressivism.

    We have been betrayed. Again. Just like in 2010, the outgoing GOP class compromised a referendum election before the new Congress even had a chance to take their seats. In this case, the GOPe "leadership" essentially funded everything the new members were specifically elected to stop. What can the incoming Congressmen do? 1. Vote for new leadership 2. Remember that no Congress can be bound by a prior Congress. What if... we had a GOP president and owned both houses of Congress. After losing a wave election where Congress is going to fully flip sides in January, the outgoing Congress...

  • CRomnibus Spending Bill - Votes Absent (semi Vanity)

    Note that it is day after the vote on the spending bill known as CRomnibus and the House clerk has yet to post the votes. (As of 11 am EST, on 12/12/14) I just wrote a flaming red-hot epistle to my congressman, Lou Barletta, about the entire process used with CRomnibus. At least he had an explanation for his vote in a post on his website. I am really curious if the Republican leadership has found a way to delay the House Clerk's posting of the voting results to give cover to Republican congresscritters.

    I’m interested in the current Federal funding bill. Below is a list of Federal Departments, starting with the original four enumerated in the Constitution. For each Department, what percentage of their current budget do you think should be granted in this budget? Are there any departments that should be eliminated entirely from Federal funding and purview? After this list there are links that further flesh out the extent of the Federal leviathan, with further “government agencies and corporations” that could perhaps have their budgets cut or entirely eliminated. Enjoy! Departments of: (with my recommended funding levels) 1. Defense: 150% 2....

    I'm not sure the country is quite ready for a total cancellation of the State of the Union much as i feel it justified. But how about a compromise and ask that the President come and give it during the daytime? In the UK the Queen's Speech to the Opening of Parliament (which is the closest equivalent to the SOTU) is held during the daytime. It would definitely annoy the White House to not get their 3 hours of night time spotlight but there's nothing unreasonable about moving this speech to the daytime.

    An interesting way to harden the US dollar and make it less of a fiat currency would be to sell the US oil reserve and use the proceeds to buy gold to store in Ft Knox or elsewhere. For those who know their dollar and oil reserve history--this is 180 reversal of policies set in the 1970's because of a 180 reversal of circumstances. In the 1970's US oil production peaked and went into decline while the US dollar went off the gold standard and went into decline. What's different now? 1.)Fracking has shown that the USA now has 100...

  • When the Republic Isn’t Worth Defending

    11/26/2014 6:57:34 AM PST · by Jacquerie · 47 replies
    I vaguely recall from Gibbon, or maybe it was from a high school class, that the Roman Empire didn’t go out with a bang. With a nod to Alaric and his Visigoths of 410 AD, there really isn’t a singular event to mark the beginning of the long slide. In broad strokes it is fair to say that Roman society declined together, simultaneously with government. For centuries, Roman citizenship was a precious possession, a jewel of unsurpassed value. As such it was held closely and kept in short supply, for among other privileges, the Roman citizen wasn’t taxed. He was...

    As we see rioters destroying downtown Ferguson and demonstrating in other cities, it occurs to me that the time is ripe for Republicans to offer their solutions to inner city problems. Black Americans have been beholden to Democrats since the 1960s, and has their lot improved? I do not have the statistics handy; I’ll let others work those up. But it is my impression that most inner city Americans are worse off in terms of lower incomes, higher unemployment, poorer education, greater dependence upon food stamps, etc. As I try to defend Republican policies on social media, my Democratic friends...

Additionally, ABC explains that the police officer felt helpless in the assault by Michael Brown. They quote police officer Darren Wilson as saying that he felt like a five year old taking on Hulk Hogan. NBC attempts to spread more hate, and start more fires...

I didn't know of this until it was pointed out to me. Back during the great depression, Herbert Hoover ordered the deportation of ALL illegal aliens in order to make jobs available to American citizens that desperately needed work. Harry Truman deported over two million illegal aliens after WWII to create jobs for Returning veterans. In 1954 Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexicans. The program was called Operation Wetback. It was done so WWII and...

    A caller to the Rush Limbaugh show just pointed out the fatal flaw in the Obama immigration plan: Any illegal alien who signs up for a work permit, pays their fines/taxes, etc will automatically become a part of a data base that could be used to find them when the regime changes as it assuredly will someday. Since Obama's Executive Order does not carry the force of law and is not permanent, this list could then be used to find the illegal immigrants and depost them. Therefore no one will sign up for Obamas' work permit program.
