"If at age 20 you are a conservative then you have no heart. If at age 30 you are a liberal then you have no brains."
Sir Winston Churchill

Obama obviously knows very little about economics, specifically that "Society stagnates when independent productive achievers begin to be socially demonized and even punished for their accomplishments." This dilemma fogs Obama's reality. To him, accepting this truth is a "false choice", his answer to things he doesn't understand. And by the way... where is John Galt?

The Top UN Climate Change Official Yvo De Boer Resigns, Leaving the UN Program in Disarray

The British rock group Queen should repackage their song "Another One Bites the Dust", as the theme song for the junk science brigands currently running for the hills. The British courts will soon indict and try these criminal 'scientists' as soon as parliament finishes their investigations. Only two weeks ago, Mr. de Boer was forced to admit that even the weak and not legally binding accord reached in Copenhagen, was beginning to unravel as continuing revelations unmask the way climate data was looted and altered by unscrupulous scientists for political and monetary gain.
No one denies that the earth has been warming; after all, the last Ice Age ended 10,000 years ago. Of course the earth's climate is continuing to change. The criminal scientists and their political lackeys, however, want us to believe that climate change equals MAN-MADE "global warming". Even the scientist at the top of this house of cards now admits that global warming ended in 1995, and the earth is now in a cooling phase. Remember the hole in the ozone layer that was supposed to enlarge and melt the north pole? As time has shown, the "hole" comes and goes and man has no control over it (it was claimed that hair spray caused the hole). The hydrocarbons in sprays were changed to, guess what, in many cases... yep, changed to CO2. Obviously, hair spray is causing climate change, or maybe it's WD-40, or dry ice. ... and about Al Gore: Listening to this idiot, could anyone trust the "science" feeding this man's cognitive disorder? He has totally lost it. Gore is now using "statistics" that he heard at a cocktail party in 2007 to justify his absurd 5-7 yr. end of the Arctic ice cap. And, oh yeah, remember when he invented the internet?

Ex-Senator Evan Bayh Looks Presidential for 2012

Senator Evan Bayh's "retirement" is the result of a dysfunctional, partisan Senate (so what's new?). Of course, that is not the real reason he is leaving. It is in his best interest to not be associated with the progressive democrat's corruption which promises to bring conservatives back into power in 2010. He also surmises (correctly) that Obama will not run for reelection in 2012 (the Jimmy Carter effect). When this occurs, the way will be clear for Hilary versus whomever in the democrat primary.
Bayh rightly senses that the country will be both anti-liberal and anti-conservative when Obama completes his term. His supporters believe that there will be no liberal of substance that could win the presidential election after the current progressive failure. The conservatives will be seen as the party of obstruction, so the republicans will not be able to produce a viable candidate. Therefore, as a young, successful moderate with deep roots in politics (his father, former senator Birch Bayh), it's only logical that he will be embraced by the angry voters waiting to dump on someone. Another point in his favor is that he doesn't come from the east or west or Texas; he's from main street midwestern Indiana. He represents those whose livelihoods have been taken away by unfair, corrupt trade policies over the last 20 years. Another thing that helps is his $13 million of unused campaign funds, which will be put to good use.

Bayh is a Bellwether for Midterm Elections

Evan Bayh's decision not to seek another term as Senator is the canary crying in the coal mine for liberal politics. He was 33 years old when elected Governor of Indiana in 1988 -- one of the youngest governors in history. And his pedigree was strong -- son of legendary Senator Birch Bayh, who virtually defined Indiana liberal democrats. Evan Bayh carved a different path than his father. He was praised for his fiscally conservative policies -- a beacon for the centrist democrats. Hence, his downfall.

European Socialism's New Tax Bombshell: 20% VAT (value added tax)

In Britain, a rise in the VAT is looming whichever party wins the general election, as Labour and the Conservatives draw up plans to balance Britain’s books. Alistair Darling and George Osborne, the Shadow Chancellor, are both considering raising VAT to as high as 20 per cent (the European average) from the current extortionist rate of 17.5 per cent. I can see no end in sight for this perfidy in our Anglo-Saxon soul mate.

The European Union Subjects have lost their Passion and this is where Obama wants us to be.

The LondonTimes Online (02/11/10) Posted my Tease about the EU leaders being on verge of a deal to bailout Greece and save the Euro. There were 54 recommendations and comments in the first 12 hours to my tease, which read:

"This may be the beginning of a swift end to the Elitist Union. Why has there not been any interest in a union consisting of Britain, Canada, US, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand. Seems like a better fit for the anglo-saxon base. As far as the EU, Germany wants to run everything, France wants to have it all their way, and the Brits would never be in it if they were allowed to vote."
A sampling of the comments follows:

President Obama's Dilemma

While he feels compelled to reach out to Republicans, his core left support is eroding:

 1. Labor unions over the failure to confirm labor lawyer Craig Becker and pass the “card check” bill for open union voting.
 "Labor groups are furious with the Democrats they helped put in office"

Obama's "False Choice" (Manipulation of the Electorate)

Obama and now some in his administration and Congress have used the "false choice" term when they don't like an alternative view. The presentation of a false choice often reflects a deliberate attempt to eliminate the middle ground on an issue. It's a trick first used by Eldridge Cleaver in his 1968 presidential bid. Bush used the concept, but never the phrase. The way Obama uses the "false choice" phrase for example, is to say that the democrats have the bill on the table, but the republicans choose to block its passage, and that's a "false choice".

"How's that Hopey, Changy Stuff Workin' out for Ya?"...Sarah Palin

How's that Hopey, Changy stuff workin' out for ya?
That was Sarah Palin mocking the believers in the "Change You Can Count On" crowd! That was a big crowd pleaser for Palin's keynote speech at the national tea party convention in Nashville. Every minute produced another standing ovation from the taxed-enough crowd. Her speech began by thanking the military personel, past and present, who were in the audience. She then questioned what Obama accomplished by touring the world and apologizing for our country.

Obama has decided it's the right time to Marginalize the European Union. It's "pay back" time.

After nearly 20 years of US-European Union summits held in Europe, the Obama White House has said that he will not attend them anymore. This year's summit will be held in May in Madrid. Obama leaked this news out just days before Spain's prime minister was to meet with Obama at the White House. The embarassment for Spain's leader was a well-calculated snub for the EU. Obama's motives here are suspect. Le Monde, the leading French daily, noted in an editorial Tuesday, "Bush wasn't the problem; Obama isn't the solution. ... The allies are discovering that the misunderstandings go beyond personalities."

Obama Administration Targeting Private Retirement Plans

Wonder how the government is going to pay for their massive spending? Private retirement accounts is one option.

I picked this up from Atlanta libertarian talk show host Neal Boortz. Link to the official government request for information (RFI) and other commentary can be found on the link below:

I read through the government RFI myself. Here is one excerpt:"In recognition of the foregoing, the Agencies (ERISA, IRS, Dept. of Labor and Dept. of Treasury) are considering whether it would be appropriate to take future steps to facilitate access to and use of, lifetime income or other arrangements to provide a stream of income after retirement. This includes a review of exisiting regulations and guidance and consideration of whether any such steps would enhance the retirement security of participants in retirement plans . . ."

"European companies with high employment standards at home view the U.S. workplace as an off-shore source of cheap labor."

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. and German labor leaders announced a transatlantic alliance on Wednesday aimed at persuading Germany's giant Deutsche Telekom AG to allow collective bargaining at its subsidiary, T-Mobile USA. Under the agreement, which U.S. labor officials called unprecedented, German trade union Ver.di will represent T-Mobile USA workers and the Communications Workers of America in talks with Deutsche Telekom managers in Bonn.
