    'Mom, look: ghosts!' - screamed my little boy when he was four on a playground pointing at few mothers dressed in traditional Islamic outfits. I guess he will never work for the National Public Radio. NPR fired Juan Williams, liberal journalist and commentator, over the following remark made on O’Reilly Factor: 'I mean, look, Bill, I'm not a bigot. You know the kind of books I've written about the civil rights movement in this country, but when I get on a plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think,...
  • Geithner and Obama accept foreign funds that influence the US policy

    President Obama made a lot of fuss recently about the US Chamber of Commerce accepting foreign contributions. The arrogance is amazing when we compare this to the fact that the USA basically lives on borrowed money from foreign countries. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner is not shy to sell US securities to foreigners. You can get details about the Major Foreign Holders of U.S. Debt as of July 2010 here. Below are just few of the numbers in billions: China $847, Japan $821, UK $374, Oil Exporters $224, Brazil $162, Caribbean Banking $151, Hong Kong $135, Russia $131… It goes...
  • Shovels are so Dark Age anyway

    Big Bureaucracy ^ | October 14th, 2010 | Ellie Velinska
    President Obama shocked America with his admission in NY Times that he realized too late: “there’s no such thing as shovel-ready projects”. It has the effect of the John McCain’s ‘I never said I am a maverick’ remark. There is no such thing as ‘shovel ready projects’, because the US bureaucracy is so over bloated and obese – it is dysfunctional. Plus America is already out of the Dark Ages and industrial scale construction work is done with much more sophisticated tools. Nobody really wants to go back to windmills and shovels. It is the age of ‘tweeters’, so...

    America is glued to the monitors following the rescue of the gold miners in Chile hoping all will go well. However the media coverage of the rescue turned the reality into a reality show.We like a nice show but can we tell where the reality show stops and the reality begins. Can we snap out of the entertainment for a second? Read the following news: "The Mexican state police commander investigating the reported shooting of an American tourist on a border lake plagued by pirates has been killed and he reportedly was found decapitated." This is not a reality...
  • ObamaCare waivers: who is above the law?

    The Obama administration is deciding now who is above the law in America. Not surprisingly Mama and Papa are not among those getting excused from obeying the new health care law, but CIGNA is. Health and Human Services Department has a budget bigger than the Department of Defense. It is really stunning to see how much money and regulating power is concentrated in HHS. The department’s Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has the authority now to pick who will follow the law and who will not. The Congress is no longer in charge. The executive branch suddenly can decide who will follow...

    "And over the last two years, that’s meant taking on some powerful interests -- some powerful interests who had been dominating the agenda in Washington for a very long time. And they’re not always happy with me. They talk about me like a dog. (Applause.) That’s not in my prepared remarks, it’s just -- but it’s true." - President Obama at Laborfest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin "Presidents are very influential to the American people. They are top dogs. Yes, but in the dog world not, because when the President is behind the dog he is following the dog. What I noticed...

    The Arizona immigration law is a matter of complaint from ten Latin America countries joining Mexico and the US Federal government lawsuit against the state. Let’s see how the Gang of 10 scores on human rights themselves. According to the 2009 US State Department report on Bolivia: Although the law permits children up to six years old to live with an incarcerated parent, children as old as 12 lived with their parents in prisons. (The law also permits spouses to live in prison.) Approximately 877 children lived with a parent in prison, as an alternative to being left homeless....

    According to Lenin revolutions happen only when the powers cannot and the masses don’t want to live by the old rules...Just for fun, let’s see how Lenin would explain the modern day America. The powers – the Washington establishment(in the progressive minds) – cannot keep the status quo. They are out of money and trillions of dollars in debt. It is fair to say that the people (the masses), left and right, don’t like the way the US government is spending their money. The masses on the left don’t want their tax-dollars to kill babies in Afghanistan and the...

    It is spooky time when central banks stop selling their gold. For a layman like me that means the cash is worthless... If the country has a massive debt the politicians tend to get rid of it by inflating the currency. The losers with saving accounts see their money buying power fade. The problem with the USA was that folks used to carry a lot of personal debt (which also loses value during hyperinflation). So for the Feds to get rid of the national debt they have to make the folks save first. The housing bubble worked for the...

    "Pete has never seen a microphone or a TV camera that he likes."- President Obama describing his new Chief of Staff. Peter Mikami Rouse doesn’t like the spot-light. The fame is for the narcissist electable dummies – the politicians, not for Pete. The elections are just razzle-dazzle. The elected newbie will go to the Capitol to be greeted by the real people of power: the Petes of the Congress, the unelected bureaucrats that know the ways of the force that turn the public servants into Washington insiders. Here is how Mr. Rouse met Mr. Obama: "… When Daschle lost,...

    While the electorate is bamboozled with ‘Taliban Dan vs. Alan Disgrason’ political commercials, the Obama Debt Commission is plotting the future of America. While the people are picking sides in the ‘Witchcraft Lady vs. the Marxist Pet’ mud fight, the economists are picking the victims of the future tax-hikes. If you think that housekeeping for Meg Whitman for $23 per hour is cruel – wait till you have to give part of those dollars for Value Added Tax (the Fiscal Commission favorite) on everything you consume. Halloween is around the corner, but the Commission’s suggestions promise to be much spookier....
  • Why did the serious media believe the UN Alien Ambassador rumor?

    Bummer! The outer space bureaucracy is not happening. Over the weekend the Brits invented the story about the United Nations appointing an ambassador in charge of extraterrestrial contacts. The most amazing part of the story was the speed with which the false rumor spread through many serious news outlets. Apparently the opinion of the media about the UN is so low that the appointment of an ET Ambassador seemed realistic. Newscasters all over the globe believed that Ban Ki-moon is totally capable of going intergalactic. After all it is likely that the UN will meet an alien before the...

    The great thinker Stephen Colbert testified on the Comedy Hill that most soil is at ground level. It is scientifically true; however, the proposed solutions were not common sense. There is no need to lift the ground up to waist level; instead we should bring back the workers who are closer to the ground. For millions of years of human history these were the kids. America has record teenage unemployment. Yet the US is importing workers from the other side of the mountain, through the desert and over the river. The American kids can pick up the veggies and...

    After wasting $3 billion with the Cash for Clunkers program President Obama and his administration decided to take cash from the American people by selling them the government’s old cars. has been holding auctions where the public can buy the federal clunkers. As of today 249 trucks and semi tractors are available for auctioning, 248 cars and SUVs. You can bid for the Obama clunker on the picture here. Here are more examples of the federal government clunkers for sale: 1969 AM General M540, 1973 AM General M35A2C, 1985 Chevrolet CD30903, 1968 Ford F600. Maybe the President made...

    President Obama declared to the world that Internet should be free in his speech at the United Nations: "We will promote new tools of communication so people are empowered to connect with one another and, in repressive societies, to do so with security. We will support a free and open Internet, so individuals have the information to make up their own minds." It is important for the President to clarify what he means by Free Internet. Uncensored Internet? Or free of charge? If he meant Free Internet as uncensored, what is the difference between ‘free Internet’ and ‘open Internet’?...

    President Obama wants to tax-hike Chris Matthews and other rich folks in America. The MSNBC host is probably not one of those liberals who support the tax-hike while hoping that the Republicans will kill it. Matthews probably just can’t wait to start paying more to the IRS. However the host of Hardball is not happy that President Obama keeps talking about these tax-hikes in a manner that suggests that he will be sending checks to Matthews, when in fact Matthews will be sending checks to Obama: Stop saying that giving people tax cuts is giving people money. It`s their money!...

    Sanity vs Honor? Socialism vs God? The debate is not new, hip or modern. It is a centuries old debate. 1790, France, the revolutionaries tried to establish the cult of Reason as an attempt get rid of Christianity. The National Assembly took over the responsibilities of the Church, which included caring for the poor and the sick. The revolutionaries proceeded forward to take care of everything in France. They did such a wonderful job that four years later the Guillotine was working really hard to instill order in the country, spreading terror instead of love... Fast forward to 1873, Saint...

    Education in America is run by the states. However during the last couple of decades Washington DC is moving strongly in direction of federalizing this realm of the social life. New Jersey runs its own system of education funded by the local taxes. Tax-payers in NJ also give money to the federal government in Washington DC. President Obama creates $4 billion ‘Race to the Top’ education program and tells NJ to compete for the funds. In the best case scenario the people of NJ will get part of their tax-money back. The rest will go for funding the bureaucrats...

    There are actions that cannot be compared. Like US citizenship given for military service or for two years of college. Democrats led by the majority leader Harry Reid are trying to make us believe that those two are equal. One is ready to serve and die for American citizenship; the other one is willing to suffer through a spring break? Somehow Harry Reid believes that this bill will help him with the Latino vote. Really? If you are picking tomatoes in California or spreading beds in Nevada hotels you can join the army. If you have money, coughs it up...
