  1. I don't think this has been brought up. http://www.nationalreview.com/blogs/print/303808
  2. Well, "Since Nixon Did Watergate Obama Did F&F" is certainly a new dog in this hunt. Let's see how he pans out. I double checked on Melson. He didn't resign, he was transferred. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0811/62320.html Rather than stringing him up by his balls, they gave him a nice cushy job where he doesn't have to make any decisions.
  3. I think Obama is naive in his tactics. Alan Simpson, recalling from memory, I once saw say that "a lie unrefuted is a lie believed". Simpson's a hard bitten old vet at this stuff, Obama is a rook. He thinks, or at least certainly at the beginning of his administration thought, that this is not a Machiavellian game. Perceived weakness can be as bad as real weakness. Yeah, give them enough rope and they will hang themselves, and you can fall back on a rope-a-dope, but sometimes...as Clemenza put it: "You know, you gotta stop them at the beginning. Like they should have stopped Hitler at

  5. Well, since your new hero, Melson, claims that he didn't know what his own department was doing, how would the president know? He may not have known, but Holder did know about "gun runner". Check the date of the speech. http://www.justice.gov/ag/speeches/2009/ag-speech-090402.html Project Gunrunner predated Fast & Furious. It started in 2005. I should hope that Holder was aware of it. Mission creep? I believe that F&F used the same personnel.

  7. http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-jobs-lost-in-the-bush-and-obama-administration-2010-2 So the number of people losing there jobs is slowing down yet the number of people being employed or re-employed are what? Unknown

  9. I don't quite buy the comparison to Dredd Scott myself. I caught Olbermanns show last night and I think he's lost it a bit. I'm not completely convinced of the ramifications. As things are now with cable, a corporation can be set up to spew political opinions and shill for political parties at will. Just have to call it "News" and that's that. a bit?? You mean the world, as we know it, isn't coming to an end?
  10. It's done. and there isn't much you can do to abridge it directly. This means that George Soros won't have to funnel his money thru different organizations. but can buy the politicians directly. So, what can we do to minimize the mischief? 1. Pass laws that give shareholders more control over what the CEO does. A large amount of stock is owned by pension funds (including unions and public employees) that represent a large voting block for most companies. If the company starts financing outrageous ads, let the shareholders deal with it. 2. Pass a law that requires all outlays for politi
  11. Time to buy stock in some broadcast companies. The amount of ads will be going up this November.
