On that note, and as an insight....talking about teachers.

Anybody went to school had teachers. Anybody has kids knows teachers. In my case, teacher once lived next door to me, nice lady.

So I tell my daughter who tells me how much granddaughter adores her teacher, that the teacher is well paid for her job and don’t forget she only works tops, ten months year.

Daughter says, “She’s worth every penny of it, Mom. Kaitlyn loves her teacher and because she does so well in school.”

THIS is part of the problem. Teachers are, for the most part and especially in the case of younger children, revered and respected by their students. The silly public doesn’t want to upset their children by seeming to be against teachers, goodness, perish the thought.

Also police, firefighters. They get these ingrained members of the local community and you look tiny when you complain about pensions of $100,000 K a year. It’s why the feds want to get all involved hiring these people. It’s how they fool us.

Good people but tools to help bankrupt this country, how sad.

Rush’s appellation of Kardashian for the Obamas is just so perfect.

Gotta love how his mind works.

I watched the Daniels interview again and I may have been too hard on him because of his unfortunate attire and his very low-key delivery.

He did have all the facts and right on his side. Wallace kept trying to bully him with some statistic about Indiana ranking 47th in something but Daniels didn’t bite on that. He just said he didn’t know anything about it.

Now that people are in more dire straits themselves, they are finally paying attention to things they formerly didn’t bother with.

We are realizing that there is no government money. None. All government money comes from us. We are paying for all federal employees and on the state level, as Mitch pointed out, it was the pages and pages of regulations negotiated by the unions that kept the state government from doing things it needed to do.

They also tried to equate Daniels signing the right-to-work law with public unions.

This action, as he pointed out, was necessary to attract business to his state. Business is leery of going to a state without right-to-work laws.

That simply means that workers have a choice about joining a union or not when going to work in a unionized facility.

Prior to that law, they had to join the union. Hard to justify that as being fair.

Daughter says, “She’s worth every penny of it, Mom. Kaitlyn loves her teacher and because she does so well in school.”

They're probably pretty nice babysitters, but how much is a Japanese teacher worth? Would mom be willing to put her child up against a Japanese student of the same age?

The word "educator" is the Big Lie.

omigosh, bray. That article was a must read. The EPA and its minions are a prime example of a government agency. They plough headlong into a situation they really know nothing about and are way too impressed by clueless bleeding hearts.

Everything they have done has been a disaster for the thing they pretend they are protecting: the environment.

The good news is that nature and forests are growth industries and that, if given a chance, they will come back in a very few years.

I hope Mitt Romney means it about disbanding this agency and we can have some common sense about the environment for a rare change.

They stopped paying union dues.

I think it is better to point out that there are simply not enough rich people to pay for the gravy train and thus the money has to come from the taxpaying middle class.

A good example is the new CAFE standards that will raise the price of new cars $2,000. That is how this social engineering fascist stuff will get paid for and every taxpayer will tax a hit.

Barack Kardashien! Yes, that caught on big time and it really infuriated Obama and the left. yet it is so true.

Obama tried to say that most of his contributions come from ‘little people,’ and are small in amount.

I do not believe that for one minute. Most of the little people who like him want him to give them money. It wouldn’t occur to them to give him money.

He just garnered a huge amount from a George Clooney fund raiser.

The domestic partner was appalled at learning this because he really liked George Clooney in Michael Clayton. So did I, but in George’s case, one needs to remove the C from his last name.

You all know 2008 was Reid, Pelosi, the Democrat Congress budget;
http://www.newsmax.com/Rahn/Obama-spending-Congress-budget/2012/05/30/id/440616
The chart clearly shows increases in government spending are associated with fewer jobs, not more. The data for the past hundred years shows the same negative relationship between the growth in government and the number of jobs. It is no coincidence that European and other countries with larger governments almost always have lower labor-force participation rates.

There is absolutely no correlation between money spent on education and results. Some of the poorest funded schools have the best results and vice versa.

If Mitch Daniels WAS doing a veep audition, he kinda failed that part because when Wallace brought up Romney and said something like, “Romney needs to run on a program better than just Not Obama,” Mitch lost an opportunity.

He agreed with that statement, and left it there. I think he should and could have said Romney is running on a program far beyond the Not Obama and then listed the things Romney has proposed.

I know Scott Walker is going to be on a show later but I may have missed it. He has to be feeling pretty good.

CAFE standards are also responsible in part for high gas prices. Regulations vary widely from state to state about the acceptable mix for gasoline, making it much more expensive to process.

Off topic, but the Dallas Morning News had an editorial yesterday condemning California voters for rejecting the increase in cigarette tax. The DMN claimed that Cal voters are killing people by this vote.

Could they be more ignorant? If they really think cigarettes are that dangerous, make them illegal. It would save me a lot of money, and create a profitable new industry — black market cigarettes.

Evidently, fairness is only fair if you are on the left.

Meanwhile, over on ABC Stuffy Stephy had his hands full trying to paint over the latest weekly demise of regime. Evidently, the bent axel is having hard time getting voters to believe that Romney is the devil and everything he wants to do is bad for the country while everything the regime suggests is the only path.

I wondered what axels reference to "what a great panel stuffy had coming up" meant until I see now that commie van jones is part of the melee. Just too good.

Axel spent most of his interview time trying in vain to explain to stuffy why Romney's plans are all wrong for America and how they ultimately create wealth at the expense of workersif only Rush will run with this phrase tomorrow!! We have the communist manifesto on board with the regime just too good!!

Creating wealth at the expense of workers is just too good. Typically you never hear such a screw up by the head of the campaign but it may show just how desperate they are getting,how the wheels are coming off the bus, that they are unable to stop Romney no matter what they do. The fact that commie propaganda was allowed out on national tv is an unforgivable sin to the left. It always has to be mentioned in secret,couched very carefully in any open discussion never in public. Sorry boys not today.

axel goes on to say how wonderful zero is and how the leaks could "never have come from the White House" even though even stephy showed how they had to have come from a close knit group very close to the White House,just too good.

All in all its the same game. Go after Romney defend against anything that happens and never ever mention debt or the huge cliff where the country is headed.

Both the panel and axel tried their best to blame pubbies for not allowing unlimited cops,teachers and other govt. employees at anytime regardless of whether or not there was any money to pay for them. Matter of fact even our side was too lame to bring up no money top pay for cops or teachers.

FTN: Governor Martin O'Malley, D-Md.; AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka both wore ties, and that did not make them look professional. Mitch Daniels, on the other hand, looked Midwestern on the FNS spot.

O'Malley keeps repeating the comment that Scott Walker has not been indicted yet. Does O'Malley know something that he is hiding, or is he just a sleazy dirtball professional lifer politician who gets a pass because is a D?

Trumka delivered a non-performance, but he can repeat talking points well and does not stutter, stammer or say, "Uh", "Eh", or "Um". Back to Mitch Daniels, he did a lot more of that than I expected. He needs to improve in that area or he will remind voters of Barry Obama, the "Eh, Uh, Um" King of the Podium. (Or does the teleprompter say, "Eh, Uh, Um"?)

unfair distribution of wealth

This is what the election is all about in 2012 - whether we are going to continue as a free market CAPITALISTIC system or go the way of the socialist Europe. RATS/Dems/libs/socialists on the left side and liberty/free markets on the "right" side.

Joe the plumber nailed this scenario four years ago and for the past four years the LEFT has been in the driver's seat. Now for the past TWO years the meme is that GOP is the obstructionist party who will not compromise on anything. I would like to see the list of compromises the RATS have made with the GOP controlled House during the past two years.

IMHO there are too many riding in the wagon right now in 2012 and too few wagon pullers - I wish I could be more optimistic about Nov 6. Rasmussen has Hussein back up to -11 today EVEN AFTER leakgate, F&F stonewalling, and bozo the clown saying "Private Sector is doing just FINE".

'A democracy is always temporary in nature: it simple cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority will always vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship.'

It is beginning to look more and more like we have entered the era of a dictatorship.

You’re right. They are good babysitters.

Granddaughter’s father, with whom I have issues, but give him credit, he monitors his child’s life closely.

He gets annoyed cause when teacher is gone and substitute takes over, they show Spongebob Squarepants shows.

Well of course the kids love this.

And get this....I like to fall over about this....daughter tells me that the other day KAITLYN’S TEACHER CAME TO THEIR APARTMENT!

Daughter says she was flabberghasted. She just happened to be outside on the apt. playground at the time and she sure didn’t want to let the teacher in the apt. Daughter says it was “dirty” though I dunno, daughter’s apt. is kept fairly nice as I consider with my experience. But I can understand not wanting to have your child’s teacher come in suddenly and unannounced, worrying about what might be laying about.

Point being, since when do teachers COME TO THEIR STUDENTS’ HOUSES?

It was couched, as my daughter tells me, that the teachers (it was a couple of them came along, daughter’s apt complex housing a lot of that school’s students) that they were just riding around or something innocuous.

This spooks the hell outta me and I’m not sure I buy that bit about this visit being all innocent.

Woodward and Bernstein on FTN; I could watch the first part, but at the commercial break I came into the computer room to report.

First thing I noticed about Woodward/Bernstein: Bernstein kept talking about the larger conspiracy of the Nixon administration, but never the actual results; Nixon won 49 states in the 1972 election. Without all the valuable secrets secured by the Watergate break-in, Nixon may have only won 48, or maybe 45 states.

And nobody died as a result of Watergate. On the other hand the Gulf of Tonkin incident and resolution led to how many American deaths? Not a word about that from Carl B.

But Carl did talk about Johnson anyway; he said that one of the tapes Nixon talked about doing another break-in and stealing some tapes that would incriminate Lyndon Johnson about something. What, we will apparently never know, because Bernstein, Woodard and everybody else just never bothered to look. Maybe some day Geraldo will look into it, after he gets over the Capone vault thing.

I just finished watching ABC's this week with Stephy. Infuriating on many fronts. Poorly moderated by a partisan Stephy. Constant interruptions of Coulter to get her off of her game and they were effective in doing that.

The most glaring mistake was the failure of Huckabee and Coulter to mention that the Dems stuffed Obamacare down our throats without a single Rep vote and the stimulus with just one or two Reps. So much for Obama trying to be bipartisan. Huckabee and Coulter missed a huge softball down the middle of the plate.

Huckabee and Coulter also did a poor job on the leaks. The NYT article by Sanger quotes members of Obama's NSC team who were in the room when these decisions were made. Liz Cheney on Fox made the most cogent comments on the situation and didn't rule out Obama's involvement like Huckabee did. Huckabee called it absurd that Obama would be involved. Nonsense. This is the most political WH ever. National security be damned if it stands in the way of Obama being reelected.

Agree with you on the observation about teachers, fireman, and policemen. The Dems always trot these out when they want the Feds to bail out the states. The fact is that most state and local employees are not those three. And the states must balance the budget. They can't print money. So the federal government, which borrows 42 cents of every federal dollar spent, must bail out the states? Where is the money coming from? China? And it is a temporary fix as the Porkulus bill proved.

The federal government is bankrupt. The entitlement programs will eventually consume every federal dollar if they are not reformed. As Liz Cheney mentioned, "If more government spending is the solution, then Greece should be experiencing a new Golden Age."

Speaking of Watergate.....

Woodward and Bernstein, now aging do-do’s with Deep Throat now known and with Watergate increasingly seen as peanuts compared to Slick’s lying under oath and Obama’s corruption, have a big FOUR page article in the WAPO this week or somewhere, sometime. I know there was a link so I clicked in.

The title was “NIXON WAY WORSE THAN ORIGINALLY THOUGHT” or some paraphrase thereof.

My eyes rolled.

I read about a page and a half and goodness the dribble, the dribble, dribble, nothing dribble.

By me those two loser-burgers never did present evidence that Nixon was worse than thought.

To my surprise, to my everylasting surprise, the comments were filled with suggestions that Nixon, however “evil” he might have been, DID AT LEAST STEP DOWN for God’s sake.

Unlike Slick Willy, for example, who GOT IMPEACHED. And many commenters said that compared to this Obama admin Nixon was small potatoes.

Trying to re-build a collapsed legacy is what they’re doing and I’m thinking the article was likely done at the behest of a White House losing all credibility cause dear Lord....

NIXON?

I don’t know if I mentioned this before....Did I tell you that I got a gun?

Indeed.

Took me all day, had to check my credentials, had to fire it, had to pick one.

A Smith & Wesson revolver. It’s loaded, securely located.

Because Obamer gets elected again, guns will probably be made illegal.

Before this, I truly believe, adjusting tin foil hat, that there’s going to be big problems this coming election.

Two things: Occupy Wall Street and the Florida Zimmerman case. These two things, with the help of the very honest Reverunds Sharpton and Jackson, are being set up to be ready to create havoc come the November elections.

Now I’m not going so far as to say the country will be wrecked and burned a la Watts of yore. I DO see a plan to set the looons free in the big cities, where OWS seems to be hanging out, and there’s always ghetto type areas to mine for unrestive citizens.

I think the plan is to SCARE the Tea Party types from voting, more so than to create havoc, and to do so in areas where you get more bang for the buck, ie the big cities and their environs.

I recall the Black Panthers of Philadelphia that Eric Holder refuses to prosecute.

I never held or shot a gun in my life but I’m ready, I’m ready.

Great catches kabar! Stephy also acknowledged the nsc team and that it had to be one of the people in the room which was immediately ignored by the bent axel whose sole mission was to proclaim that the regime had not part in the leaks. Stephy let him slide of course and dutifully went onto the next topic.If truth gets know it will be from our side shining the light of day on truth as usual.

They realize people are sneering (or outright laughing) at the stale beyond-all-reason “Bush’s Fault!” meme. So now they’re trying to convince people that nothing compares to “the evil that was Nixon”.

I don’t think it’s working.

He didn’t look bad, perfectly acceptable for a town meeting at the local feed store.

He may have felt entitled to dress down since he wasn’t there in person but appeared through remote.

It just gave a bad impression. He should have worn a suit and tie. The switching back and forth from the impeccably attired Wallace to the farm boy look just put him at a disadvantage.

Admittedly, a very small thing but I wasn’t the only one who noticed it and complained.

Kaitlyn does very well in school, is well-adjusted, always clean and neat. There’s no reason to be snooping into her home life. Though I emphasize it wasn’t necessarily aimed at her.

Daughter said she talked to the teachers, there were three of them, but didn’t invite them in. She said some other parents did.

I know teachers need to report abuse and such but there’s something really weird about them stopping by like that. IF there’s suspected abuse they need to report it to social services people, not go investigating themselves.

Though hey, it could be innocent I must suppose.

On another note, hey, I am knee deep into Dick Cheney’s book “In My Time”.

I am enjoying this read so much but there’s so much about which I have questions. Everything covered in this book happened during MY lifetime so I remember so much.

I’m up through his hiring with Haliburton.

I’m going to do a drop-dead serious review of this book cause I’ve got so many questions.

Good observations all. Huckabee has a huge problem with wanting to be a nice guy ... he needs a little Donald Trump in him. I would not put anything past Obama including the leaks.

Where’s the liberal outrage over the selected drone bombings that also kill children and other innocents?

I think it was Krauthammer who said something like, “I’m not necessarily against it, but it doesn’t play well with the indignation expressed by libs over waterboarding, etc.”

Waterboarding never killed anybody, even the recipient much less bystanders.

I saw some other commenters upthread remark about this Nixon thing being covered on some other Sunday shows, that I don’t get here in the swamps.

This is not a coinky-dink so I agree with you. The Nixon thing was probably something silly Valerie Jarret came up with...”Hey, let’s get Woodward and Bernstein to revive the Nixon thing, get the American public’s mind on just how evil the Republicans can be, take the heat off of us and our perfect plan to leak stuff to make us look good.”

Or to that effect.

Again, the commenters said after the article, over and over....AT LEAST NIXON RESIGNED. Nobody seemed to be buying the meme that Nixon was so horribly bad.

Somebody call the Republicans and have them use that talking point cause how damn evil could he be if he stepped up and resigned without prompt, compared to, just throwing it out there, CLINTON?

"Obama says he has created 4.5 million jobs during the first last 27 weeks months of his Admin."

That works only if you count only the months with job increases, and don't count the months with job losses.

Obama likes to say that Bush only created 118,00 jobs in his entire 8 years. That only works if you count the jobs starting the first day of the Bush administration (neglecting the residual of job losses from the Clinton Recession and then 9-11) and go to the last day of the Bush administration which includes all of the losses from the financial collapse. If you count Obama jobs from day one, as he does with Bush, including his first 15 months, he has LOST a couple of million jobs.

>The title was “NIXON WAY WORSE THAN ORIGINALLY THOUGHT” or some paraphrase thereof.< They realize people are sneering (or outright laughing) at the stale beyond-all-reason “Bush’s Fault!” meme. So now they’re trying to convince people that nothing compares to “the evil that was Nixon”.

No one died in Watergate. Try convincing Brian Terry's family that the Nixon admin was more corrupt than Obama, big Sis, and Holder.

They are excellent at trotting out statistics.

This only works because a lot of people believe in statistics and/or statistics are so boring that people tune the whole thing out.

It is pathetically easy to manipulate statistics.

All we have to do is look around. People are out of work. People can’t sell their houses which are often underwater.

You don’t need statistics to tell you that.

What was he thinking?

A suit and tie, yes. To those who speculate the guy might have been rehearsing for Veep to Romney, come on.

He don’t have the sense to present himself as best as he can to the world?

I’m watching Axelrod on Candy Crowley and he’s wearing a suit and tie.

Consider Daniels outta the Veep race.
