Negotiating With a Sociopath

I have zero faith in the "fiscal cliff" negotiations.

Because its like Tony Soprano negotiating with Shaggy from Scooby Doo.

Yes, the Republicans are Shaggy.

Morons and mongoloids who think that the game is played by Marquess de Queensbury rules are no match for a man with no morals, no character, no brains and no conscience.  President Fah King Moron is a sociopath.  Period.

The Republicans are Fredo.

Kill Buffett By Killing Coal

If President Fah King Moron (that is Barack Obama for those of you in Dundalk, MD) wants to kill coal through a back-door effort by his EPA, I say let him.  It will DESTROY Berkshire Hathaway and Warren Buffett.  Lets see what the Orifice of Omaha does when coal traffic on his beloved BNSF (that is Burlington Northern Sante Fe Railway) drops so low, he can't keep his choo-choos running.

Obama is an ass, and Buffet is the hole.  Schadenfreude!

Stupid Liberals

According to Forbes, if you took the wealth of the richest 400 Americans and combined it, you would have $1.37 trillion.  Assuming you could seize and liquidate that wealth at 100% rate of return and deposit it with the US Treasury, you would only cover spending for 4.5 months at current levels.

Now, some things to consider:
1) Wealth is not income.  So, you would have to liquidate a great deal of property and investments.  Take Warren "Asshole" Buffett.  His wealth is tied up in Berkshire Hathaway, and the day you start liquidating his investments in Berkshire, the value of the investment will begin to decline (along with everyone else's investment), as the market responds to the influx of sell orders.  So a 100% rate of return -- assuming there are buyers -- is a nigh impossibility.

2) Four and a half months is squat.  Pathetic, isn't it.

3) Most of the 400 richest Americans are "wealthy" because of accumulated wealth, not simple earned income.  That is why Warren and Mitt pay those "low" tax rates, because they take their income as a capital gain on an investment, not as standard income.  And you cannot combat accumulated wealth through tax policy.  Every time you do, it is a disaster.  Ask FDR, who did it by trying to seize gold.

Such schemes are the product of idiot liberals, who want government's hands off their birth control and their love for killing unborn children, and on our wallets instead.

Stupid liberals.

No, Those Aren't My Ads

No, those aren't my ads. They are courtesy of Google.  And you should keep that in mind if you feel driven to buy adspace on Google.  Their ad engine is imperfect.  It think that Ben Cardin is a waste of skin and oxygen, just like his leftist, loud-mouth sidekick, Babs Mikulski. I wouldn't vote for a member of the Democratic Party -- the political wing of the Klu Klux Klan for 100 years -- if Ronald Reagan was reborn and registered as a Democrat.

Of course, this year I am not super interested for voting for political pacaderms, either.

Quotes to Keep in Mind

"If the policy of the government upon vital questions affecting the whole people is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court,the people will have ceased to be their own rulers." -- Abraham Lincoln

If only the nine robed potentates of SCOTUS were so mindful of the role they play.

Olbermann Out at Current TV

One of the broadcast industry's most amazingly facile and total assholes is out at Current TV.  Even Al "Manbearpig" Gore could not longer stand Keith Olbermann's incessant whining and bitchiness.  He was the preeminent drama queen of cable, which frankly, says a lot.  Network after network, show after show, channel after channel, the man left nothing but the bitter taste of wormwood in the mouth of everyone he worked for and width.

So long, asshole.  Until the next moron that hires you.

Martin Luther King’s Dream Dies at the Hands of Joan Carter Conway

Anyone who knows me knows that I am skeptical of the benefits of an elected school board – partial, hybrid, fully or otherwise.  I might detail that skepticism at a later date, but in sum, my concern is that until the power of the state and Federal departments of education are severely diminished, the impact of such an elected board will generate no light and nothing but heat.  And Joan Carter Conway, Democratic Senator from Baltimore City and a leading catamite in “Soddom on the Severn” proves my  point.

Susan Parker Constructs a Straw Man That Collapses Under the Weight of Illogic

Susan Parker’s editorial in March 28, 2012 edition of The Daily Times is an outstanding illustration of the weakness of commentary writing in the modern marketplace today.  Her editorial ends with a vacuous and illogical statement, “We can't even agree on what the core issues are. How can we possibly resolve them?” based on a faulty statement from the previous paragraph, “For Catholics and their supporters, the issue with health insurance is religious liberty. For nonbelievers, it's truly about fairness --providing for all a basic level of access to lawful health care services.”

The Inexorable Creep of State-Run Health Care

If the Affordable Care Act shall fall before the Supreme Court of the United States, the inexorable creep of State-Run Health Care shall continue unabated here in the State of Maryland.  The recent announcement that St. Joseph's Hospital in Towson will be purchased by the University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) is just another "brick in the wall" of statist health care.  By hook or by crook, the fascist, progressive elements of our society will continue their unending march toward the abolition of private health care.

The Tyranny of Government

A fundamental question on the principle at question in case of the Affordable Care Act before the United States Supreme Court is this:  "Is Congress empowered to pass a law that compels the purchase of a product under the authority and powers delegated to the national government as enumerated in the taxing power and the commerce clause in order to address price and cost disparities?"

If the court should decide in the affirmative, a corollary to the question before the court should be, "Can the government compel the commission of sin in order to increase tax revenues under the same powers?"

This question is timely, as the government of the state of Maryland which I shall forever refer to as "Soddom on the Severn" continues to squeeze blood from the stone through the increase of excise and "sin" taxes.  Should the reaction of the people be to diminish their participation in such activities, and thus increased revenues fail to be realized, will government have been granted the power (as opposed to "delegated") by the court to compel such activity?

It is an interesting question that should be pondered.  Already, we have seen the Affordable Care Act used to compel conscience violations in the realm of insurance coverage.  Where will that power stop?
