    Muchelle has pushed children to eat “healthier”, but the “healthier” food went directly to the garbage cans because according to children the “healthy” food “tasted like vomit”. Students complained of being hungry with the Muchelle’s lunch menu and the districts lost money. Therefore this year school districts dropped Muchelle’s lunch menu. http://dailycaller.com/2013/08/27/kentucky-students-to-first-lady-michelle-obama-your-food-tastes-like-vomit/

        There are true Libertarians and there are anarchists. Mises.org is NOT representative of Libertarianism, it is representative of anarcho-capitalism. There’s a big difference, and when the devotees of Mises learn the difference, they will abandon that site in droves.

        From the Lew Rockwell (founder of the Mises Institution) website, which bills itself as “anti-state”:

        “I have no idea why [the Constitution] is worshiped instead of denigrated, other than the apparent lifelong indoctrination and propaganda spreading that has labeled it the source of our rights. Nothing could be further from the truth.” http://www.lewrockwell.com/2013/08/gary-d-barnett/limited-government/

        “It created a powerful central government, with the cover of liberty as an excuse. [Hoppe] used it as a case in point, and went further to argue that all constitutions are of the same type. In the name of limiting government — which they purportedly do — they invariably appear in periods of history when the elites are regrouping to emerge from what they consider to be near anarchy. The Constitution, then, represents the assertion of power.”

        “Those who signed and accepted the Constitution in 1787 did so without the legal consent of most living at that time, and as no valid voluntary contract existed between individuals and government then, it should be understood that there certainly is no valid contract today. As far as I’m concerned, the U.S. Constitution is a dead letter.”

        THAT is not LIbertarianism, my friend. That’s Constitution-hating anarchism.

        • TheOriginalDaveH

          Do you know the difference between anarchism and anarcho-capitalism, Vigilant? Obviously not.
          Vigilant says — “Mises.org is NOT representative of Libertarianism, it is representative of anarcho-capitalism”.
          Obviously Vigilant doesn’t know what a Libertarian is. Yet he claims to know who is representative of it. You’re a bigoted joke, Vigilant.
          Those people who would like to learn for themselves, instead of taking the word of a zealot, need only to read this book by the Father of Libertarianism:

          Oh, boo hoo, Vigilant gave me a thumbs down.
          Libertarians would love it, if the Leaders would abide by the Constitution. Would we stop there if they did? Of course not, because we are smart enough to know that the Constitution was written by men, and those men were worshipers of Central Government which wiser men of the time knew to be a dangerous entity. And those wiser men have been proven over the years to have been correct. They were called the anti-Federalists. Read this:

            in which he states, “And let me be clear: I’m not talking about any particular inhabitant of the White House. I’m talking about the institution itself…”

            It’s abundantly clear that, regardless of the lofty-worded subterfuge they try to hide behind, these “anarcho-capitalists” are not for limited government, they are for anarchy.

            I know very well, as does anyone who understands the English language, what Lew Rockwell means when he bills his website as “Anti State.”

            Would you like a quote from a spiritual forerunner of the “anarcho-capitalist” movement? Try Lysander Spooner on for size:

            “The Constitution has no inherent authority or obligation … And it does not so much as even purport to be a contract between persons now existing. It purports, at most, to be only a contract between persons living eighty years ago.”

          • Vigilant

            You have, ever and anon, been obsessed with winning and losing. We all win when truth is recognized.

            But since you bring it up, better take a count on your down arrows. I think there are more patriots and lovers of the Constitution out there than you choose to admit.

            The jig is up, Dave.

          • Vigilant

            Indeed, Dave. The first words in the definition on that site are as follows:

            “Anarcho-capitalism (also known as “libertarian anarchy” or “market anarchism” or “free market anarchism” is a libertarian and individualist anarchist political philosophy that advocates the elimination of the state in favor of individual sovereignty in a free market.”

            “Eliminating the state” may have a soothing ring to your tone deaf ears, but I and anyone who understands English know what that means.

            The “ordered anarchy” they talk about is a Utopian scheme that may have been suitable for hunter/gatherer societies, but is as unachievable as any socialist Utopia ever presented for consideration. It’s Luddite-like and regressive.

            I’ll keep the Constitution.

          • TheOriginalDaveH

            Expecting the mass of people to ever reach that state of intelligence may be a bit much, but I will always strive for perfection.
            Having voluntary associations instead of monopoly Government is morally superior as well as being more likely to result in good outcomes, since monopoly Government always ends up in the hands of the few to the detriment of the many. And they always assume Power over everybody even though the people haven’t all Freely chosen that domination.
            The Constitution is, of course, much better than what we currently experience, but devolving most of the Central Government to local levels would be much preferable.
            To better grasp what I’m saying, the logical extension to our Federal Government would be a one-world Government. If indeed, Central Government is preferable to Local Government, then why stop at the Federal US Government? It’s just an artificial boundary.
            With Local Government, the people have much better access to their Leaders — as it should be.

          • Vigilant

            Thank you, Dave, and I mean that sincerely. Those were good words.

            You say, “The Constitution is, of course, much better than what we currently experience, but devolving most of the Central Government to local levels would be much preferable.”

            I couldn’t agree with you more, and I’m glad to see you say it. The evils of the growth of centralized government to what it has become today are a far cry from what the Founders intended. They undoubtedly gave us the republic which, over time, the people have not been responsible enough to keep.

            From the democratization of the republic through such things as the 17th amendment and the enslavement of the people through the 16th Amendment and the Federal Reserve Act, through today’s ultimate dismantling of the checks and balances and the greed of politicians of all stripes, we are indeed in a world of hurt. I frankly don’t see any chances for turning the tide.

            The powerful forces of globalization have already diluted national (and therefore individual) sovereignty and threaten to destroy it altogether. The more local governing bodies are, the more effective, efficient and circumspect they must be, as well as having a healthy fear of the people instead of vice versa.

            SOME sort of refreshment to the tree of liberty is definitely needed, but I don’t know if the solution will turn out to be bloody or benign. Only time will tell if we ultimately reach a chaotic type of anarchy rather than simply roll back the centralized government infringements on our freedom.

          • TheOriginalDaveH

            Anarchy and Chaos have been falsely associated. The only chaos that might occur under anarchy is that which is perpetrated by psychopathic Leaders fighting for turf — the same sort of psychopathic Leaders who eventually form Big Government.
            We had the dreaded “anarchy” in Pennsylvania in the late 17th century, and the only people harmed were the advantage-seeking Leaders who were held at bay from their special privileges:

          • vicki

            As several have pointed out on this blog, anarchy is just the absence of government. It does NOT equate to chaos. Human nature brings the chaos when individuals start using force to get their way instead of civilized persuasion.

            This is why governments are instituted among humans. To protect people (individually and as a group) from force. Whenever a government becomes destructive to that end, the people have a right and a DUTY to remove that government and replace it with what they perceive as a better one.

            Until such time as EVEYONE is able to exert self control and abide by the principle of non-aggression we will need government to assist us.

            Anarchy still does not equal chaos.

            When we look at the dictionary definition of anarchy we find that there is 1 definition that applies.

            There are others that are the source of confusion

            I remember looking up the definition of Anarchy 45 years ago when I was a teen, and it had only one — absence of Government. Now everywhere I look it has the association of anarchy and chaos as a second (sometimes primary) definition. The Propagandists have been doing their jobs well.

          • vicki

            Unfortunately very true. The Websters dictionary does not say when each of the adulterations of the definition of the word occurs but it would be a good addition.

            Looking at the origins of the word it is clear that

            1a absence of government

            is the intended and primary definition

      So, from his statement, are you saying Putin is an anarchist? Freedom Fighter then claims it shows him to be a dictator, and you seem to agree with that while I would think that dictator and anarchist are on opposite ends of the spectrum.

      Anyway, I didn’t read his statement as either of those things, when read in full context.

      “ And I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States’ policy is “what makes America different. It’s what makes us exceptional.” It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.”

      I think the obvious point in this context of his op ed is in opposition of interventionism through perceptions of being exceptional (better than everyone else), to the point that we even act unilaterally from the international community on an issue that is squarely within the jurisdiction of international law (use of chemical weapons), rather than the whims of a single country. Not trying to put Putin on a pedestal in the sense that I think he would be a great American president, but I think he’s right in this case.

      Exceptionalism is the perception that a country, society, institution, movement, or time period is “exceptional” in some way and thus does not need to conform to normal rules or general principles. So if Lew and Mises are anarchist (to which I would not entirely disagree), how would they be proud of him when he is actually speaking against such anarchy as the word entails?

      Are you saying that there are motivations, or instances, where exceptionalism is a good thing in this context?

      • Vigilant

        “So if Lew and Mises are anarchist (to which I would not entirely disagree), how would they be proud of him when he is actually speaking against such anarchy as the word entails?”

        No. TML, your premise is wrong, and I never meant to imply that Putin is an anarchist. I’ll take the hit for being unclear about that.

        My beef with Rockwell and his child, the Mises Institute, is that for them, nothing is good about America. Rockwell and others trash the Constitution, and Rothbard and others trash our leadership, past and present. Nary a complimentary word comes out of their mouths when it comes to our form of government, nor the fundamental truth of its formation upon truly lofty principles. Their solution? Anarcho-capitalism, and while capitalism is indeed the preferred and happy state of society, anarchy is not.

        Their cynicism about human nature may be partially justified, but to advocate for anarchism is to thrust mankind back into a state of nature where exists, as Hobbes said, “worst of all, continual fear, and danger of violent death; and the life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.”

        As I’ve said, the Constitution is the greatest governing document to ever have been created in history. It is, admittedly, my opinion. But it is an opinion I fiercely defend. That statement is opposed by strange bed partners, the progressives and the anarcho-capitalists. Both seek to denigrate the Constitution and tear down the structure of society; the left would give us statism and the anarchists would supplant them with anarcho-capitalism. Not only is such a Utopia impossible, it would return us to an era of tribalism and brutality.

        I heartily agree with your sentence that begins, “Exceptionalism is the perception that a country, society, institution, movement, or time period is “exceptional” in some way…”, but I reject that it “thus does not need to conform to normal rules or general principles.”

          Vigilant says, “I never meant to imply that Putin is an anarchist. I’ll take the hit for being unclear about that.

          Then I’m still wondering how Putin’s statement would make Lew and mises.org proud. Anyway…

          The definition of “exceptionalism”, whether you agree with it or not;

          ex•cep•tion•al•ism – noun
          1. the condition of being exceptional; uniqueness.
          2. the study of the unique and exceptional.
          3. a theory that a nation, region, or political system is exceptional and does not conform to the norm.

          World Dictionary: exceptionalism: an attitude to other countries, cultures, etc based on the idea of being quite distinct from, and often superior to, them in vital ways

          The full context of his statement (which you declined to include in your initial post) was international relations, under “definition 3″ above, rather than some acknowledgment of ‘uniqueness’. It is clear that when one believes they are the “exception” to the rule in this regard, we get presidents and a populace that supports unilateral interventions in foreign countries when it is not their right, or jurisdiction (as Obama had recently tried to do, and other president before him who actually succeeded). I share your reverence of the Constitution, and agree it is the greatest document in history, but I’m not sure exceptional is the word I would chose to describe it, because let’s face it; the Constitution isn’t the exception, it is the rule of law.

          As for Lew and mises.org, I agree with your assessment entirely, but they do have some very good points on certain issues, while going extremely too far on others as you have pointed out.

          • Vigilant

            TML, I believe we have very similar views but are stymied sometimes by unclear communication. And again, if I’ve been unclear I beg forgiveness.

            I prefer the Wikipedia explanation, i.e.,

            “American exceptionalism is the theory that the United States is “qualitatively different” from other nations. In this view, America’s exceptionalism stems from its emergence from a revolution, becoming what political scientist Seymour Martin Lipset called “the first new nation” and developing a uniquely American ideology, “Americanism”, based on liberty, egalitarianism, individualism, republicanism, populism and laissez-faire. This ideology itself is often referred to as “American exceptionalism.”

            I see where you’re coming from, and I need to clarify that I am not a proponent of American exceptionalism in the manner defined by World Dictionary but in the sense of the Wikipedia definition. In other words, I don’t think we have any charter to engage in swagger, interventionism, nation building and the like.

            I have preferred to look at it as the greatness of the gift our Founders gave to the world. a model for government that cherishes individual sovereignty, as well as the spirit, charity, helpfulness and pride that everyday Americans display in their daily activities.

            My point, to make it crystal clear, was not to assail Putin for making a politically motivated and hypocritical comment, but to imply that Rockwell and Mises make it their mission to denigrate, condemn and smear all things American.

            I agree that Austrian economics has a lot to offer, but I reject the anarchism with which they would see their particular brand of capitalism realized.

            They and those who loiter there are anti-authority freaks who despise not just totalitarian authority but ALL authority. However extremely the politicians and voters have mistreated the Constitution, or allowed its mistreatment, is not cause, in my opinion, for condemning the federalist principle altogether.

        Putin is the “Spider King”, he comes from the world of secrets, a dark place of operational subversion, murder, death, compulsion, expulsion, exploitation, and manipulation on a international scale, where only the most ruthless, clever, and quick survive to make it to the top.
        Putin will be whatever it takes, no matter the label you want to use, he will accept any label to achieve set goals and maintain power and control.

          Perhaps, but it’s an ad hominem logical fallacy to attack the character or motives of a person making an argument, rather than the argument itself. But the context of his statement which was not considered, regarding being equal and supporting the rule of international law between nations, is agreeable.

          Hey FF, did you have the war of “Gog and Magog” in mind when you posted your comment?

    • http://cowboybyte.com/ Alondra

      Vigilant, what I am hearing from you and some other posters (ignorant or purposeful/planned) that is the pure prejudice, based on the stereotypes of the 70+ Soviet Empire.

      Why would not you accept that the Putin’s mentality and ideology is totally opposite to the Kommunistic ideology under which his/my generation grew up in the ex-USSR. I was there in that time, Vigilant, and I know the thoughts and feelings the third and fourth generations had. We did not have Internet, but we had underground literature of the dissidences and whistleblowers’ letters. We learned to read the newspapers between the lines.

      Russia is not Soviet Union. Putin isn’t a communist, and the communists are not in power today in Russia. The communists are in opposition to Putin. The Russian Communist Party is highly critical of his policies. Vladimir Putin won presidential elections with 65% votes; Communist Party’s competitor got 17.7% with the 64% turnout to the polls.

      Vigilant, it’s regrettable and sad that intelligent and reasonable man as you are marginalizing, downgrading and totally disregarding the FACTS.

      The actions loudly testify WHO is WHO.

      From the beginning Putin wanted Russia to be partners/friends with the USA, but G.W. Bush started to lay down his conditions to Putin, which were unacceptable for Russia, because they were beneficial only for ONE side – the United States. Bush wanted the U.S. to be the Lord and Russia – Vassal. One sided and One way politics NEVER worked.

      So Mr. Putin proclaimed Russia’s INDEPENDENCE from the USA and the WEST as well.

      I watched almost all Putin’s speeches and press conferences (in original), if not all. And I can tell you with all confidence that Vladimir Putin is NOT a LIAR nor HYPOCRITE. He is talking the talk and walking the walk. He walks as he talks, because he is very disciplined and hardworking man, man who LOVES his country and People. He is working for People and for the GOOD of HIS Country.

      And the Kenyan FRAUD is talking the talk, but NEVER walking the walk. His talking is LIES, LIES and more LIES. He hates this (NOT HIS) country and American People, especially WHITE People. He is working for MBH and Saudis.

      Vladimir Putin is proud of his country.
      The Kenyan Fraud despises and HATE this, YOUR, country.

      Vladimir Putin stands tall and looks Foreigner Leaders in their eyes.
      The Kenyan Impostor BOWS to Saudi king, to MBH, to China’s leader, to Japanese Emperor, etc.

      Vladimir Putin has been building up and STRENGTHENING the Russian military.
      The Kenyan Charlatan has is destroying and demoralizing the US military.

      Vladimir Putin brought Russia to her Christian roots from the Atheism.
      The Kenyan Muslim is prosecuting Christianity in America and is dumb when the Christians are slain/beheaded/burned alive by Muslims allover the world.

      I am doubt that you will express the same scornful and belittling
      feeling about the ex-CIA operative, who one day may become a good President of America, who would respect “We the People” and the Constitution – Supreme Law of THIS Land and the Bill of Rights (and not Sharia Law), who will bring American People back to the American heritage and values on which she was intended to be.

      My VOTE is going to Vladimir Putin for the President of America.
      I rest my CASE.

      P.S. The American exceptionalism in the present is remaining only in the American Constitution and the Bill of the Rights, which aren’t Authoritative/ Rightful/ Lawful/ Effective/ Acceptable/ Useful anymore, at least for the last 100 years. They became just the Historical Papers.

      I understand it’s very hard to accept for you, but that is the present
      REALITY. Sometimes it’s hard to look at the eyes of the TRUTH and accept it. So we are resorting into denial. But it does not change the REALITY.

      With respect,

        Judging from Lemieux’s earlier comments. unfortunately it is not.

        Don’t you just love the leftist spin? Obama was looking for a way to save face by punting the ball to Congress. When he could get no traction there, nor with either the Security Council or most nations of the world, he was willing to go it alone (or so he said).

        Sorry, Louis, Putin’s getting the credit for forcing the suspension of US military reprisals and the Beginner in Charge is left looking like just what he is: a feckless, gutless, clueless amateur on the world stage.

        Wouldn’t surprise me if the Nobel committee strips Obama of the Peace Prize and awards it to Putin.

            Actually Obama is a lot better at playing games than almost all of our Presidents. He plays games when he should be working, but he doesn’t know how to lead this country, he just lets it happen. Wow such great wisdom. He has Valeri Jarrett that does his thinking and acting for him. He just goes on vacations, spends money, plays golf and leads from behind, (His own policy by the way). Now he even has Russia doing his job making him look like a fool. He can’t even stub his own toe.

          • WTS/JAY

            Yeah, he’s quite the ignoramus. But then again, consider all the ignoramuses that voted for him, they picked a president created in their own image. That’s some strong kool-aid they’re drinking i tell ya.

            Doesn’t the fact that obama is better at playing basketball than leading a country, bother you in the least? He wasn’t hired to play basketball, he was hired to lead a nation to freedom and prosperity. I think that the current-president is seriously confused; he should have picked a career in sports, rather than politics.

          • Louis Lemieux

            “Doesn’t the fact that obama is better at playing basketball than leading a country,” : That’s an opinion most Americans don’t share, Obama was reelected. Obama can chew gum, play basketball and lead this country at the same time!

Now ODUMBO ( D US’s most inept president) wants to wage war on Syria

Interesting? Sounds like the usual academia lounge lizard la-la land diplomacy.

            Comedian Albert Brooks, not any Dumocrat, was the first to comment regarding Assad giving up chemical weapons when he tweeted on Sept. 7, 2013: Russia and the U.S. could unite for one week, go into Syria, remove the chemicals, and let them continue fighting.

        8. they’re both successful “Rebublican” women(which means they’re only in it for the money, not because they care)

        ABORIGINAL. if you don’t know the limitations of Palin and Bachmann In national politics I can never explain them to you! Just research where Palin killed McCain and the opposition killed Bachmann in her primaries! Every thing has a reason and denial cannot kill that reason! It only hides the true reason from the one in denial!

        • TheOriginalDaveH

          NutCase,
          I’m asking you to tell us what you find offensive about Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann.
          You’re the one who dissed them, so surely you know why you dissed them.

          • NC

            ABORIGINAL, THEY WERE NOT REAL BRIGHT! MAKE STUPID STATEMENTS! AND SUPPORTED THE REPUBLICAN PLATFORM! I HAVE NEVER VOTED FOR ANYONE WHO INDICATED THEY WOULD SUPPORT THE REPUBLICAN PLATFORM! I AM A DEMOCRAT AND THEY CHOSE TO BE REPUBLICANS!
            I HAVE NEVER HAD THE HONOR OF VOTING AGAINST MS. BACHMANN!
            NOHTING WOULD PLEASE ME MORE THAN TO SEE HER OR PALIN ON THE NATIONAL TICKET BUT I DON’T SEE THE REPUBLICANS CAVING IN THAT EASILY!

        • JeffH

          nc says, “the opposition killed Bachmann in her primaries!”

          Hmmmm, let’s see now…isn’t Bachmann still representing Minnesota in Congress?

          …then nc says, “Palin killed McCain”.

          Not only is that statement just false, it’s supremely false. Sarah Palin made a vast difference in McCain’s favor.

          In Pew’s exit poll in 2008, voters who said Palin was a factor in their vote went for McCain by a whopping 56-43 margin.

          There is no evidence to suggest that Palin was a real drag on the ticket, contrary to the media’s narrative.
          You must have watched HBO movie “Game Change” and believed it was accurate…a movie as your source of research.

        Sarah Palin was right from the get go and the liberals knew it. Why else would they devote so much time discrediting everything she said? As things have developed we (some of us have) are now aware of the underhandedness of liberal dogma. Liberals are so caught up in receiving their “entitlements” not realizing the ultimate damage caused by this mindset. They refuse to realize you cannot keep the status quo without destroying what they need to depend on. Every socialist nation eventually collapses we will as well as that is what ODUMBO has created and the indolent and lethargic greedily embrace

        Unfortunately as demonstrated by nc the liberal one dimensional indoctrination camps that masquerade as public schools are rather effective in the production of the functionally illiterate who believe lame stream media and the government

          You are very correct on the indoctrination camps. In 1991 when the Iron curtain came down, the leftist newspapers like the New york times and Washington Post went out and hired the former Soviet block propagandist and psychologist to create the brain washing they so desperately wanted. The reprogramming is another thing they have worked on diligently worked on. you get violent reactions from lefties and they don’t know themselves where the anger came from.

            The last year to receive a “quality” education was in the early 1960’s. After serving in the military I earned my college degrees in the early 70’s. I noticed a marked difference in curriculum when my children attended college. I was astounded that college needed to teach what I learned in high school so they can comprehend the college curriculum. I am not sure that today’s colleges provide a “quality” education, merely higher debt ratio.

            Fortunately we home schooled and our children were ready for college. They were able to acquire scholarships and we were able to absorb up the rest.

          Sarah Palin has been right on most everything she speaks about, she is the best hope for the conservative party. Both Republicans and Democrats fear her, the RINO’S hate her as much as the Bolsheviks. That is why the media denigrates her,
          The Republican hierarchy can’t control her so they try to destroy any chance of her running. Karl Rove is instrumental in knocking her down every chance he gets.

          The media choice is hillary, she is one rotten politician, a liar and dishonest, just like her husband. When the wimpy Republicans ever get the courage to face off with Barry on the Benghazi tragety, it most likely will be The Hilda beasts curtain call, however, she got away with the murder of Vince Foster so maybe she will survive

      What was funny is that Tina Fey made up comic lines attributed to Sarah Palin, and dummies on the left took them as factual.

      nc as always has proven the one dimensional indoctrination camps have performed as intended. NC is proof positive that being dependent on everyone else has instilled a penchant for feeling superior to everyone else and always being correct.

      Sadly when one is as dumbed down as nc they are in the believe they are incapable of being incorrect for lame stream media and the government would NEVER lie to the American people therefore nc being dependent knows the truth, while reality proves otherwise.

      Facts to a liberal are those that are pulled out of thin air and or provided by lame stream media to swathe their ineptness on all things rational. Liberal one dimensional idiot-ology dictates they make things up as they go so they can blame others for their failures. Nothing is ever ODUMBO’s or the DUMBOCRITES fault.
      So whenever they have trouble defending and/or nothing to substantiate their positions they simply fall back on the Federal Board for Blaming Bush or citing lame stream media .. Then
      all their liberal inadequacies are soon considered as ancient history becoming non issues and then forgotten

        Hello Pigsty,
        Seven downs-wow, you probably gave me at least three of them as you were voting yourself up. I see those downs as both amusement and reinforcement of the fact that life has leaders and followers. Leaders think for themselves and come up with their own conclusions-popular or unpopular. Followers are people like you who produce propaganda or others who believe the propaganda that you spread.

        I could make statements like “Who gives me “downs”, they even do not read my comments” to gain a false level of moral superiority-but I will leave behavior like that to you.

        I figured you out a long time ago Porkenstein-you might have some people fooled here, but you are very transparent to me. Like your boy toy- Vladimir V. Putin-someone like you would be an oppressive power hungry bully who would use our Constitution as a bird cage liner if given the opportunity

          Also, John, he tried to take school choice away in D.C. at the start of his presidency. He wanted the students to attend public school rather than private, ( as his kids do) or charter school.

    We have put a person into a position that could effect his mind, he has gained arrogance, constant lying and that’s dangerous. Putin has showed him up for what he is , nothing more than a con man. (street organizer) .

    Now we are in the danger of him trying to save face, he could easily start ww3 over this. He has people on both sides of the isle calling for the bombing of Syria, Republicans who should know better like John McCain, I think he spent too many years in the Hanoi Prison and it has effected his thinking.

      What if O and Putin are working hand in glove for the same end result. What if it does not matter how much of fool O declares himself to be because as long as the Americans and the world watch him and Putin and Assad they won’t be watching what happens behind the scenes to manipulate the country into going a certain direction. What if the chemical stockpiles Syria will be “disposing” or “handing over” are nothing more than just trash that serves no useful purpose but needs to be disposed of.

      • Jeff

        Yes, it will create jobs in environmental cleanup once those tar sands leak and get into the water table. That pipeline will benefit no one but the Canadian oil companies who will save money on shipping and maybe some shipping companies in New Orleans. Meanwhile, we take the risk of that dirty oil polluting our water with no benefit. What – the price at the pump might come down a penny or two? Every advance in alternative fuels that reduces demand for oil will bring the prices down far more.

    This is for TODH and Vigilant, no matter what politico we put as the figure head of the United States and that includes the Libertarian will not change one iota of the system we have in place now. The population has been groomed and corralled to what we are now by the education and religious systems of this country since our inception. Even if ALL the educators quit for the next 3 generations and the kids were raised and educated by their parents that Dem/Prog/Leftist/Socialist mindset would still exist in the parents and grandparents and it would be transmitted to the kids unintentionally. How much mischief would those educators do in other jobs since they would have to do something to earn their keep?
    The power elite will not abolish our system of economics because it is the only one in place which provides them with ready source of funds so they can fiddle with setting their NWO in place.

    Obama outsources nation’s economic management to Bain consultant…

    President Barack Obama’s new top economic deputy is a former management consultant who worked for Gov. Mitt Romney’s Bain & Company investment firm.

    The appointment of Jeff Zients as head of the National Economic Council is likely to annoy some union officials and some liberal groups who are focused on declining working-class wages and growing poverty, and it clashes with the populist anti-business invective used by Obama and his aides on the 2012 campaign trail to paint Romney as uncaring.

    On the campaign, Obama repeatedly slammed Romney’s management-consulting business, and one of his TV-ads even suggested Romney was responsible for the death of a former employee’s spouse, who passed away after a battle with cancer.

    But Zients has stellar credentials as a progressive believer in the ability of government and corporate experts to manage Americans’ economy.

    Zients worked at Bain & Co. from 1988 to 1990. During this period, Romney was running Bain Capital, so the two did not work together.

    Zients made his $100 million-plus fortune in the early 2000s overseeing a company that advises companies on government regulations and business strategy.

    “Jeff has a sterling reputation as a business leader, and he earned the admiration and respect of everyone he worked with during his four years in leadership positions at the Office of Management and Budget,” Obama said in a statement Sept 13 that did not mention Zient’s role at Bain.

    “I am certain that in Jeff’s hands we will continue to have strong leadership of our economic policy team and his advice will be critical as we keep moving this country forward and building an economy where everyone who works hard can get ahead,” Obama said.

    The appointment was leaked to The New York Times on Friday. The paper did not not mention the adviser’s controversial connection to Bain. Neither did Politico’s Playbook.

    From 2009, Zients worked for Obama in a series of jobs, including acting director of the Office of Management and Budget. He also worked as Obama’s representative on his CEO-heavy jobs council.

    The council includes many firms, such as General Electric, that profit from close cooperation with government. Throughout the economy, many companies, including those on Wall Street, profit from government contracts or regulatory changes.

    Since Obama was inaugurated, a greater percentage of the nation’s wealth has gone to the already rich and the clever who take advantage of government’s growing power.

    “The very wealthiest Americans earned more than 19 percent of the country’s household income last year — their biggest share since 1928, the year before the stock market crash,” the Associated Press reports. ”The top 10 percent captured a record 48.2 percent of total earnings last year … [and] in 2012, the incomes of the top 1 percent rose nearly 20 percent compared with a 1 percent increase for the remaining 99 percent.”

    AP also reported that “95 percent of the income gains reported since 2009 have gone to the top one percent.”

    The AP’s report was based on a study of 100 years of data from the Internal Revenue Service by economists at the University of California, Berkeley.

    Finally, someone asked Obama the question! On “ABC” during the “network special on health care”…. obama was asked:

    “Mr. president will you and your family give up your current health care program and join the new ‘universal health care program’ that the rest of us will be on?”

    There was a stoney silence as obama ignored the question and chose not to answer it.

    In addition, a number of senators were asked the same question and their response was.”We will think about it.”

    And they did. it was announced today on the news that the “kennedy health care bill” was written into the new health care reform initiative ensuring that congress will be 100% exempt !

    So, this great new health care plan that is good for you and me… is not good enough for obama, his family or congress…??

    We, the American public, must stop this proposed debacle asap. This is totally wrong!

    Personally, i can only accept a universal health care overhaul that extends to everyone… not just us lowly citizens…. while the washington “elite” keep right on with their gold-plated health care coverages. If you don’t pass this around, may you enjoy his Plan!

    What, the Republic has a CONSTITUTION?

    Amendment 28

    Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators or Representatives, and Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States .

      SAMURAI, have you noticed that there have been no reported gas attacks since Obama first spoke on the subject? Do you think his “message” in known by Assad?? AND Assad remembers who took out bin Laden and made it look easy! Didn’t even wake the neighbors!!!! What ever has caused them to cease is good!
      Not a “boot” has died! That is equally as good!!

        Though their are no soldiers in Syria, which is good, but Obama bin Laden still wants to send them. Now he is shifting and talking about striking Iran. Doesn’t this seem strange to you? Why would he suggest going somewhere else, when the American people do not want it, nor does he have support in Congress nor the Senate to do such a thing, but yet he says we must go? I didn’t think the president had that authority according to Article 2 of our Constitution. He’s acting more like a fool throwing a temper tamtrum. No more gas attacks since Obama bin Laden spoke about them? There was another gas attack done in Damascus late last week, but I think the reason there are none is because Putin is getting involved. Assad isn’t scared of us, for he has a modern day military and we have no money to go to war, but he is scared of Putin. He knows if he gets Putin angry, Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran will dissolve their alliance and he’ll be out in the cold. I wish you would study more before posting. Talking to you is like talking to a man-child. A man child has the body of a man, but the mind of a child. Here is an article talking about the misery of this country during the 2nd term of Obama bin Laden.

Thanks Barry, you chased away 300 companies that hold their annual conventions here in Las Vegas, resulting in $300 million lost revenue for the city. No wonder Nevada leads the nation in unemployment and foreclosures. BTW Barry, your irresponsible remark caused the mayor of Vegas to change party affiliation from demoncrat to independent.

        Great article, samurai. Let’s hope we never hear from the Weinerman again. What a class act, flipping off a reporter as his last official act. Or his wife who seams just a little too chummy with the Hildebeast. I’m wondering if Cankles Clinton will come out of the closet before 2016.

        • http://batman-news.com samurai

          Hitlery come out of the closet before 2016? D’oh! :-) :-) :-) I don’t think that Hitlery will have a chance at winning in 2016. Benghazi has destroyed any attempt at her winning, along with Obama bin Laden throwing her under the bus. Also, Joe “Jelly Beans” Biden wants to run against her. I hope the GOP can get a down to earth person to take them on. Here is an article about someone saying that Obama bin Laden should give his Nobel Peace Prize to Putin.

            Now that is a true statement. Keep up the good fight fellow patriot. Isn’t Chelsea a lush? I heard she was when she was in college. I guess it wouldn’t make any difference, especially when her mother was the one responsible for this atrocity happening. Here is an article about Michelle bin Laden and about phasing her out.

            I think ~ leaving family out of your rhetoric would be welcome.

            Chelsea Clinton has done nothing to have her name brought forward in political debate. ~ While Chaney’s daughters have been far from silent, ~ yet you don’t hear their names invoked without they themselves ~ opening the door.

            Down dawg! down.

          • Palin16

            The point is if Chelsea was the Libyan Ambassador, Obummer would not have given the order to stand down, he would send in help right away. And the Hildebeast would not have made up a ridiculous story about a “despicable youtube video”. BTW, only 11% of Libyans have internet access and even then its dialup. People don’t bring mortars to a spontaneous demonstration on the anniversary of 911 no less.

            Don’t count her out because I know some Demos who liked her better than Obama and I know they don’t know what is going on in the world. Some of them worked on her campaign, they also thought O.J. was innocent. We just need to put the word out in local newspapers of what they did in the past, in this administration and back when Bill was the Gov. of AK and when both administrations were over of how many people associated with them ended up dead (approx 80) or harassed.

      Agreed, ~ that was a Presidential blunder of marginal size.

    Perhaps the reason Obama was reelected in 2012 is because voters got to vote for him in 57 states whereas the other guy in only 50 states.

    • Deerinwater

      Or that Mit Romney shot himself in the foot by getting caught at a critical time in a back room meeting wooing wealthy bloodsuckers with the things that he said that were unfit for general consumption, could have something to do with 44 reelection.

      • Palin16

        Did ya also notice the way the media kept harping on Romney’s dog on top of the station wagon but made no mention of Obama eating dogmeat when he lived in Indonesia?

        • Jeff

          And you may have eaten your boogers when you were 8 years old. What possible bearing does it have on your “qualifications” to do anything now?

          • Palin16

            About the same as Romney giving a hippie a haircut as a teen. BTW, Romney was my last choice for GOP nomination.

          • Jeff

            I think tendencies shown in high school are far more telling than something someone may have been exposed to by his parents long before the age of consent. While I never held the fact of Romney’s Mormonism against him, I did think he showed very little courage by not standing up to the Church as a young man when he knew its policy toward Blacks was something out of the 19th Century. And Romney, being the son of the most prominent Mormon in the country, could have had an impact on its policies.
            Similarly, I think his protesting for the Viet Nam War while in college, then sitting out the war on a mission in France (I’d convert if they’d send me to Paris for 2 years.), only to later lament the fact he didn’t fight also showed a lack of courage. I mean, Romney’s a few years older than I am and I knew the kind of guys that age who were FOR that war and who never had a conversion. Even Romney’s father soon came out against that war but not Mitt. Always the political calculations with that guy.

          • Palin16

            Dirty Harry Reid is a mormon also.

          • Jeff

            As are most of the older establishment people in the business and legal communities in Las Vegas. My point was not about Romney’s religion as I thought I made clear. My problem was with his submissive relationship to authority. As a young, wealthy, and prominent Mormon, he might have been expected to question his government (Viet Nam) and his Church (race relations). He did neither. Harry Reid, while a Mormon also, grew up poor in Searchlight, Nevada with none of Romney’s wealth, prominence, or connections. I see little equivalence.

          • Palin16

            I also made clear Romney was my last choice for the GOP nomination. I voted for Ron Paul in the Nevada caucus. And don’t expect me to have any sympathy for Dirty Harry, one of the most crooked politicians in America. Everyone with half a brain knows his last election was rigged. It’s as easy to program those voting machines as it is program the slot machines. In addition, SEIU was telling the casino workers if they don’t vote for Harry they might be out of a job.

          • Jeff

            I don’t think the election was rigged, but Reid was “fortunate” to run against Sharon Angle, the only candidate I’ve ever seen actually run from reporters. I’m sure Harry did everything he could to make sure she got the nomination. As for the voting machines, were you saying the same thing in 2004 when the owner of the largest voting machine company bragged how his machines would insure W’s re-election?
            As for the union vote, I don’t think most union members need to be threatened to know Democrats are more on their side than Republicans, most of whom announce their hatred of unions while saying “hello.”

          • Palin16

            Did you happen to watch the debate between Reid and Angle? At the end, each candidate was given 3 minutes to give a closing argument. When it was Harry’s turn, he wasted a whole 60 seconds fumbling around looking for his papers….”wait a minute, let me find my papers, uhh, it must be here somewhere…uhhh, hold on a second” etc etc. He came across as bumbling, senile old man. The polls afterward said Angle clearly won the debate against an unprepared old man who should have retired long ago.

          • Jeff

            He may not be what he used to be, but the key is how he votes. He and Ms. Angle would vote the opposite way at least 99% of the time, so who fumbles with papers is the least important fact. I remember Harry as an attorney. He was petty good, very politically connected, pretty good in the courtroom. Went to Congress at the same time as ex-Governor Bryan. They called them the Gold Dust Twins or something like that as they both appeared quite young, particularly compared to some of the old guys who had represented Nevada for decades.
            I’m sure you said the same thing about Strom Thurmond retiring when he was Harry’s age (and much older).

          • Palin16

            Yes I would, all these old farts need to retire, regardless of party. I’d love to see term limits for congress, but of course none of them would do the right thing and vote for that because they enjoy the power and control over other people’s lives. Furthermore, I’m not at all impressed with lawyers; they are the scumbags of the universe. Do you know why they bury lawyers 12 feet deep? Because deep down they are really nice people.

          • Jeff

            Since you don’t know any lawyers personally, here’s a clue. It doesn’t matter what people vote for when it comes to federal term limits. You need to amend the Constitution. And the biggest problem with term limits is they empower the lobbyists even more than the current system since freshman legislators barely know where the bathrooms are, let alone up from down about complex pieces of legislation.

          • Palin16

            My last experience with a lawyer was when my former stockbroker ripped me off for $5,000, using insider trading and a host of other complaints. The shyster investment lawyer that I contacted told me that all 8 of my complaints were valid but he does not take any cases unless he makes $10,000 in fees himself. I’m sure this crooked stockbroker knows that he can get away with crap like that and once I complained, he discontinued communicating with me and turned over communications to his so-called “compliance examiner”.

          • Jeff

            Of all the Republicans, the ones I at least sometimes agree with are the Pauls and that alone will keep them from ever earning the Republican nomination. I completely agree with what Rand Paul said yesterday about the drug war and its disparate impact on minorities. I also liked what he said about seeing Obama as a leader. Unfortunately for him, that statement will also disqualify him for the Republican nomination.
