  • Hip Hop Republicanism

    03/26/2009 5:24:22 PM PDT · by aAMma · 21 replies · 1,980+ views
    Michael Steele, the new Chairman of the Republican Party, has said some things about hip hop which have caused quite a stir. According to Samuel "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher, whose political expertise everyone takes very seriously, Michael Steele "wants to redefine conservatism; he wants to make it hip hop, put it in a new package and sell it." What Joe the Plumber fails to realize is that, in its heart, hip hop really is conservative.

    A new study shows that states that consume the most porn tend to be more conservative and religious than states with lower levels of consumption. "When it comes to adult entertainment, it seems people are more the same than different," says Benjamin Edelman at Harvard Business School. However, there are some trends to be seen in the data. Those states that do consume the most porn tend to be more conservative and religious than states with lower levels of consumption, the study finds. "Some of the people who are most outraged turn out to be consumers of the very things...

    You all were so helpful with a question on seeds the other day that I have another one for you. Preparing for the most basic needs of a SHTF scenario, I have a wonderful shotgun and .22. As far as adding a high power rifle goes, I know what I'd LIKE to have but that's another story. Is there a consensus on a quality-made, affordable rifle, and what should I expect to pay? Would it be a bad idea to buy from a pawn shop? For those of you who seem to like to "notice" these things, yes, it's my...

    It looks as though the USSC or for that matter any of our elected representatives are going to do anything to call into question Barrack Obama's foreign national status. So, it's up to us (American Citizens) to apply the pressure to get them to take notice. We can BOYCOTT any spending on luxury/non-essential items. This will get the governments attention. Pay your bills but don't spend your tax refund, don't spend your stimulus payment. Call in to local radio talk shows.......you know the drill.

    Friends: If you've been listening to the news and poll results this past week, you're probably thinking the election on Tuesday is a mere formality at this point, and that the outcome is all but pre-ordained. Nothing could be further from the truth. Did you know, for instance, that pollster John Zogby predicted Barack Obama would beat Hillary Clinton in the California Presidential Primary by 13 points? She won by 9.6 percent. That's nearly a TWENTY-THREE POINT DIFFERENCE (result vs. poll prediction). The same exact thing happened in many other States. How can any "professional" pollster be off by TWENTY-THREE...

What was their crime? There was no crime. But a passerby with a cell phone apparently assumed a crime had occurred...

    An unbeatable ticket, one that would leave Hillary Clinton in the dust, is Giuliani/Lieberman. Clinton could easily lose her own state. Lieberman's a conservative Democrat (in some ways), Giuliani's a liberal Republican (in some ways) -- satisfying any combination in taste. But both have the most pressing issue of our time in focus. That issue is NATIONAL SECURITY. This is the dream ticket. Imagine election night. What a hoot.

    China increased its bank reserve requirement yesterday by .5 percent to 8.5 percent in an attempt to siphon off excess liquidity. The move comes just after China's second quarter report put its GDP growth rate at 11.3 percent. While raising the reserve requirement is considered by many countries to be a very blunt monetary policy instrument, China's blistering economic growth warrants something stronger than simply raising interest rates to tighten credit. The central bank has even said that a 10 percent reserve requirement by the end of the year is not out of the question.

With its rate-setting Open Market Committee sitting down for two days of talks, the Fed is expected to increase rates by another 0.25% to 5.25%. This would be the 17th rise in a row, putting rates at a new five-year high. Commentators point to the fact that Fed chairman Ben Bernanke has already warned that inflation is a concern. He said at the start of this month that recent increases in inflation - triggered by rising...
