    Yes, only certain names are now qualified for higher office. Of the 300+ million citizens of these United States only a handful of families are capable of governing.

    With voter fraud, low information voters, and a political party that chooses to alienate its own base at every opportunity to join with the rest of the established ruling elite, we may as well select a king and be done with.

    Let them then hire their retainers to wage internal wars for the right to the crown while the rest of us become serfs with no say in our own destiny (since it seems to be happening anyway).

    If $10.10 can do all the wonders that Joe is claiming then think of what a paradise we would have if we were serious about this! Why just raise people to barely above the poverty level? Bring them into the middle class and force employers to pay them $20 per hour. But, as Americans, do we really want to think so small? Let’s have a nation where all workers are actually wealthy and businesses are forced to pay employees a minimum wage of $50 per hour. Then everyone is making a grand amount of money and businesses are...

    Out of business. No one is employed. Ahhhh, a Democrat’s dream come true.

    If I wanted the IRS to read my email I would copy them on every email I send.

  • Since When Does Federalism Contain an Exemption for Internet Gaming?

    03/26/2014 11:31:26 AM PDT · 9 of 14
    FerociousRabbit to DannyTN

    Not necessarily. There are many horse betting sites, for instance, that only permit residents of states that permit online horse wagering with state-licensed wagering sites to actually wager online.

    I suppose it is circumvented easily enough but the same is true of any interstate commerce regs. I can’t legally play at a casino in my state but nothing stops me from legally gambling at casinos in other states.

    A federal law banning online gaming is the same as a federal law shutting down casinos nationwide, IMO. If states want to permit it to their residents, let them. If the government (federal or state) wants to tell me how I can best spend my money... well, that is why I am a conservative. I’ll decide that for myself, whether it is blowing it on online poker or investing it in a start-up company that sells contact lenses for cats.

  • Free market approaches to immigration reform

    03/26/2014 9:17:42 AM PDT · 10 of 18
    FerociousRabbit to MichCapCon

    Symptoms:
    Population decline
    Economic decline

    Are they separate, unrelated, symptoms? No. The economic decline suffered by Michigan caused the population decline. To reverse the population decline Michigan needs an economic recovery — nothing else will stem the population decline.

    Disease:
    Detroititis

    The economic hub of the state has been destroyed. What destroyed it? Democrat politicians and Democrat policies (brought about by LIV/Democrat-voting union members).

    Prescription:
    Apply fiscal restraint in state and local government, end government gimmees to LIVs and end the tyrannical reign of unions. Take two aspirin and call me in the morning.

    Detroit would recover and so too would Michigan’s economy and when Michigan’s economy is on the mend then US citizens would naturally migrate there seeking better opportunities for themselves (conservatives happen to be the segment of the population that seeks to better itself through working in the free market). Those that continue Michigan’s death spiral are Democrats. Period.

    Finding ways to bring in more immigrants is simply increasing the Democrat population which will continue the death spiral of Michigan (and send droves of illegal immigrants to other states turning them into the third world countries they initially came from).

    At some point even the least intelligent among us come to the realization that doing more of the same thing does not reverse a worsening situation. Those that never figure it out have no intelligence at all. We call these lifeforms Democrats.

    This would be great if he were taking our conservative message to them.

    Instead, Rand Paul is trying to build the political political support needed so that he can defeat conservatism within the GOP and make it a rino/libertarian party, and totally eliminate the Reagan wing.

    Hint: A Constitutionally restrained federal government IS a conservative message.

    What other politician is bringing up the fact that the government is completely out of control to leftist college kids and is actually getting their applause because it resonates with them (probably because they have never heard such a message before)?

    That’s right. No one.

    I despise Paul’s flippity floppity behavior when it comes to the topic of illegal immigrants but saying Paul isn’t delivering a conservative message — that being a Constitutionally restrained federal government — where no other politician dares to go is denying what lies at the heart of conservatism: Liberty.

    Okay, so you have someone who used outlandish behavior to initially get noticed to make it to the big time. I don’t agree with it believing that pure talent should eventually make its way to the top but can almost understand the need for certain mediocre performers to get recognized (the bizarre costumes and glasses of 1970’s Elton John come to mind as do the costumes, makeup and pyrotechnics of KISS).

    After a while though, shock value for pure shock value is no longer shocking. It’s just sad, sick and disgusting. This has reached a new low among lows. I can’t wait to see what the next new low will be /s/

    FerociousRabbit to The Sons of Liberty

    Not surprising, since most that I’ve seen are at least 100% lazier and 50% less intelligent.
    ___________________________________________________________

    I think you meant 100% lazier and 500% less intelligent but I am not sure that it is possible to be 500% less intelligent. We now need a government funded study to determine if it is possible to be 500% less intelligent.

    To conduct the study we need to hire additional government workers to compensate for the 100% lazier government employees who are too lazy to actually conduct the study and form a new agency to oversee the newly hired 100% lazier employees who are as yet of an undetermined percentage of mental acuity less than the population at large. We also need to pay them much more than they are worth to lure the best and brightest away from the over-payed private sector.

    Or, as one Freeper on a related thread would vehemently contend, government workers already make far less than their private sector counterparts so we will probably need to conduct a study on the injustice of low government wages and their impact upon the laziness and reduced mental acuity of government workers which will call for more government hires to...

    A snippet from factcheck.org:

    ...the average salary for civilian federal employees was $81,258 in 2009 — about 61 percent higher than the $50,462 paid to the average private sector worker.

    So, it was 61% higher a few years ago. I doubt much has changed.

    The reason the cost of living is so much higher in DC is because the salaries of GERBs are so inflated — not the other way around.

  • Is Fibonacci simply a B/S system for stock market movements...or is it real?

    01/20/2014 6:06:08 PM PST · 24 of 36
    FerociousRabbit to RoosterRedux

    Fibonacci ratios have zero significance in predicting market movements in my opinion. Is there any more significance to be had with with 38.2% than 38.4%? No, of course not. How about when you compare the 61.8% level with 62.2%? Again, of course not.

    How about the most widely touted level, the 50% level? Technically, I don’t think it even is a Fibonacci ratio but trading tools include it because it works just as well as actual Fibonacci ratios so now you are trading with Fib ratios that aren’t even Fib ratios!

    Random lines drawn on a chart do no better and no worse in my experience. So why are they so widely used? Got me. I guess people feel they are mystical, magical and mathematical and need to believe there is some easy way to pinpoint what the markets will do in the future.

    The Fibonacci sequence is great if you want to predict the population growth of rabbits but for every example where you can show me that price respects fib levels I will show you ten where it doesn’t.

    Markets obey the laws of supply and demand and are not bound by the ratios of a specific series of numbers. If trading could be reduced to a simple series of numbers then we wold all be billionaires.

    I should point out that, when people say stay away from penny stocks, they are telling you to keep the money you can’t afford to lose out, not the money you can afford to play with and you should have some money that you can have fun with and not worry about whether you lose it or not. It’s all part of the fun of investing to be able to hit that one stock where you made ten or twenty times what you invested in it and when you have lost everything you put into it.

    I completely agree. If the OP is looking for a fun little hobby then he can jump in with money set aside specifically for fun/entertainment and trade away.

    You are in for a wild ride with the pennies. They are typically listed OTC (over-the-counter) and not traded on exchanges (such as NYSE, for example). SEC pattern day trading rules will still apply through your broker so you will need to have a minimum of $20K in your brokerage account (online brokers are fine) if you are planning on day trading or short-term swing trading and making more than 4 round trip trades within 5 business days.

    The problem with pennies is that they are very thinly traded. In markets there must be a buyer for every seller and vice versa. You may not find a buyer for your shares at the price you wish to sell which means you could be stuck with a zillion shares that no one wants to buy. Market makers facilitate the process with exchange traded equities but the bid/ask spread on pennies could be more than the unrealized gain your account is showing. It is definitely an ever-present danger when trading illiquid securities.

    If you are a trading novice you may wish to try your hand swing trading exchange-traded equities for a while through any of the discount online brokers (TD Ameritrade, for example) just to get your feet wet while you learn what you are doing. They are at least stable relative to pennies. I would say $50K is the minimum to actually day trade exchange-traded funds. Even that is very much on the low side.

    If you have very limited capital you can trade the spot forex market to again, get a feel for how markets work (though trading currency pairs is a very different animal from stocks). Minimum deposits are usually 50 bucks with fx brokers. You will need $500 to actually make real trades and keep your stops realistic and still have enough to meet margin requirements.

    Pennies are probably the riskiest of all securities to trade (followed by fx). They are simply unpredictable IMHO.

    ____________________________________________________________

    Cramer’s brain is caught between a rock and a hard place showing the tortured thinking the “typical” Democrat must go through. He is first and foremost a capitalist (and very successful one). He is finding out that capitalism and the Democrat Party cannot co-exist. One must exclude the other. He is also somewhat patriotic on occasion. One cannot be a patriot and be also be a Democrat. Again, the two are mutually exclusive.

    The shock value comes when a Democrat actually permits a few brain cells to formulate a rational thought. The rational thought is always a heresy among Democrats because it is a conservative thought.

    People like Cramer are extremely dangerous. They spout good ole fashioned American values one thinking minute and then pure unthinking progressive “thought” the next.

    I loved the Cassius Clay reference. Good sportsmanship certainly went away when Clay came on the scene. For my own list of unique cultural shifters, here goes!

    Phil Donahue
    His show began the race to the bottom for television programming and was instrumental in normalizing the dysfunction and aberrant behavior that is so prevalent today. Without Donohue there would be no Oprah, Springer, Maury and all the rest of the pure filth television programming we saw develop over the last 25 years. I also see The Phil Donohue Show as the precursor to “reality” TV. Group a bunch of societal rejects together and watch for entertainment. The premise of shows like Donohue, Oprah, Springer and Maury are the same as Real World, Jersey Shore, Honey Boo Boo, etc. Watch societal misfits show their collective asses to the shocked viewing world. Over the years, however, we are no longer shocked at their behavior. We, as a society, accept it as the new normal. Incredibly, the show Duck Dynasty, which follows a somewhat traditional family of hard working and self-reliant Christians, is now thought to be the epitome of televising societal misfits by television executives. My, how far we have come. Thanks, Phil Donohue.

    Pope John XXIII
    The Catholic Church had remained essentially unchanged for over a thousand years. It had weathered heresies, scandals, wars and even the Reformation without, itself, changing too much. That all changed with Vatican II. The Roman Catholic Church underwent a seismic shift that forever altered what it was to Catholics and non-Catholics alike. Observers may have felt the world was falling apart at the seams whether they were living in the 16th, 17th or 19th centuries but at least they knew that there was one unchanging institution serving as a compass (for good or bad, depending on your religious and political views) and that was the Catholic Church. Since Vatican II most nuns are indistinguishable from laypersons, the Holy Orders are in universal decline, the ultra-conservative Church is now a bastion of liberalism. Once the Catholic mass changed in its outward appearance… well, anything is open for change. These changes are almost always for the worse. Homosexuality is now celebrated, abortions are a right, social justice (Marxism, pure and simple) is a mainstay of accepted political thought and the list goes on. And modern society all started changing when the Church decided to change. Hmmmm….

    John F. Kennedy
    He gave his first inaugural address without wearing a hat. The decline in popularity of hats in men’s fashion from that point on was steady and irreversible. When the hat went away, largely due to his personal example, so too did traditional American values. The decline in pop culture and the steady erosion of society can be linked to this one event.

    You are correct. Everything about Obamacare, the website rollout, the ads, the “unexpected” problems, the quick fixes that make things worse is all pre-orchestrated.

    When most Americans find themselves without health insurance and are taking to the streets with torches and pitchforks there will be one last fix and it has already been taking shape. The vast majority of new sign-ups are for... Medicaid.

    The government, with the blessing of the Republicans in both houses will expand Medicaid to cover all. The sheeple will love it because it is all FREE!!!!!! Except, of course, for those who will be footing the bill through higher taxes but who cares about the 1% anyway?

    Once we are all enrolled as a nation in Medicaid the government may now confiscate all that personal wealth and property to pay for the medical debts that were accumulated by the previously-living users.

    Voila! The state now owns and controls everything. Lenin is frowning in Hell because he never thought of it.

    “Remember: $ spent on “Duck Dynasty” products goes to A&E. $ spent of “Duck Commander” products goes to the Robertsons.”
    That’s correct. Duck Dynasty = A&E

    Buy Duck Commander products.
    __________________________________________________________

    My take is a bit different on this. I agree that DC products benefit the Robertsons directly but in the end, most Americans don’t know the difference. Large segments of the country wearing officially licensed Duck Dynasty apparel are still making a loud and clear statement — We like those Duck People and what they stand for!

    It is almost like buying the ammunition from the people you are using that ammo against.

    CB has been beaten up hard in the past by GLAAD, the NCAAP and others over alleged practices. Disgusting organizations like those can bring an organized negative campaign to bear that gets picked up and spread by the media. Next thing you know, they take a hit where it matters most —$$$

    Hoping to avoid any negativity, CB made an ambiguous statement, took only select items off its shelves and hoped to split the baby down the middle and keep both sides happy.

    It didn’t work. They quickly found out their hillbilly consumers are bit more savvy than originally thought and that they would quickly go under without their primary customers — middle America.

    They apologized, put Phil’s merchandise back on the shelves and, hopefully, will learn a lesson. They have my business again.

    So you are willing to compromise your principles by patronizing a business led by people who have demonstrated principles that you claim not to share?

    An apology isn’t good enough for me.

    There are lots of other places to buy iron cookware, candy and Gaither CDs.

    A breakfast taco from just about anywhere will do me just fine.

    It is negative/positive reinforcement, in my opinion, just like training a dog.

    CB did something incredibly stupid. They quickly received an abundance of negative reinforcement. They have now apologized. I will return to doing business with them which is positive reinforcement.

    Hopefully, they will re-evaluate their policy of whether or not to jump into PC knee-jerk reactions which may alienate their consumer base in the future.

    Corporations across the country have been incorporating political correctness nonsense for decades. I am hopeful we are seeing the first signs that middle America has had enough and that we are not going to take it anymore.

    The principles of a business are profit. They were afraid of losing profits because of GLAAD, NAACP, etc. They realized, albeit lately, that their profits came form another segment of society. They have corrected that error (at least for now).

    I can once again look forward to enjoying their pancakes which are sublime and can do so with a clear conscience (unless they screw up again, of course).

    CB was wrong. They admitted it. That means I am now happy, happy, happy.

    I don’t see A&E’s position on this. The family was hired to do a “reality” program and Mr. Robertson was being true to the character that A&E contracted with and they want to fire him for it? Even though Robertson is at the height of his popularity?

    Just doesn’t seem to make logical sense.

    Does it make sense that CNN and MSNBC continue to watch their ratings swirl around as they go down the toilet? To leftist TV execs, it is full speed ahead — ratings be damned. They have an agenda to push that is more important than anything else.

    Contact Cracker Barrel and tell them what you think.

    I just did. This is basically the opportunity Conservatives have been waiting for — we have a cultural issue to push back on that is getting MSM reporting.

    Don’t waste the opportunity! Push back!!!!
