July 29, 2013

For decades, leaders of the World Bank have recognized one of the surest ways to reduce poverty in developing countries is to help their residents obtain reasonably priced electricity....

This is just another event in the Obama 'Spread the Misery' worldwide tour. Tens of millions of Americans are already being denied access to reasonably priced power resulting in unnecessary misery, so, in true liberal/progressive collectivist fashion they shout across the Globe 'Were here to save !YOU! and spread MORE misery to your already miserable third world crap hole!!!' Maybe these geniuses can find a way to burn environmentalist whackjobs to produce cheap, efficient power.

This administration believes the way to prosperity is through higher taxes, higher energy costs, and increased regulation.

The Goal is to make the entire country be like Detroit.

I really do not understand the progressive mind, to what end is their logic? Do you destroy everything for the good of the planet? Do you bankrupt the wealthiest nation on earth on a premise that is at best really only conjecture? What is the end game that liberal/progressives want? I believe that the new taxation should come from the movie industry, the money that they gross is gross!

TOT, the short answer is the lib/prog ideological end game is complete control over every aspect of your life...womb to tomb, some might say. As to the lib/prog world view, think of DDT. That ban occurred due to a lying enviro-nut named Rachel Carson. Millions of people worldwide have died from malaria but that's ok because maybe some birds were saved and people be dam*ed. Proof that they WILL destroy anyone and everything that gets in the way of their promotion of a false, morally bankrupt and failed ideology. Now we have another lying ideological nutjob trying to unload his verbal garbage on other Countries. As portnoy alluded to, all this will end someday, but it didn't start yesterday and won't end tomorrow. Between those infinities I plan to point out liberal's arrogant lies and hypocrisy whenever the opportunities arise. I've been very busy lately.

Let us also no forget that the entire policy is based on a hypothesis. There is no proof or tangible evidence that mankind is contributing to Global Warming. The models only model the last 1000 years and rely heavily on positive feedbacks. Anyone with knowledge of systems in nature will tell you that there are no systems have positive feedback because they are unstable. The reality is a good model would be bale to model the last 500,000 years to account for the glacial and interglacial periods.

Anthropegenic Global Warming is nothing but smoke and mirrors

So BOB, I want to make sure I interpreted your post correctly so are you claiming that conservatives have never lied or are you saying you just won't point those lies out?

I disagree with the premise of the editorial. Not all third world countries want the advances that prosperous nations have, including electricity. At the last World Global Warming meeting in Cancun, some nations did not want the side effects that more advanced nations experience such as corruption in government. Not all third world nations are poor, some are rich in their art, crafts and religion is such a cohesive force that a policed state is not necessary. When giving other countries the benefits of one society, lets not erase the society that the gifts are given to.

SO WHERE IS THE PROGRESSIVE ANSWERS? Nothing but disagrees from them.

Disc, the votes below are cries for help... they do not get real world topics!

I see a lot of disagrees here but o reasons or words to back up the unsubstantiated positions.

I guess they are waiting for the Democratic elite to publish the talking points first so they know what to regurgitate. Shame they can't think on their own.

I claim no such thing clue, never have. YOU are free to point out conservative lies just as I point out lib/progressive lies as long as you can back it up with facts and not vapid emotion, heroic assumptions or pure conjecture. You miss the point; my enemy is fear and ignorance which the entire liberal/progressive ideology have been very good at promoting for the past 100 or so years and the results are glaringly obvious. You can either continue to misinterpret my opinions and motives and base them on what YOU 'feel' or you can jump into the fray and do the hard work of defending your own position. Your inability or unwillingness to articulate your own ideology gives me the opportunity to negatively define you at every turn with your only response being to disagree with me without qualification. So, explain to all of us why Freedom and Liberty and Individualism frightens all of you liberals. Stamping your feet and bombastic statements here will not further your cause.

'Not all third world nations are poor, some are rich in their art, crafts and religion is such a cohesive force that a policed state is not necessary'. That's just too cute Anna, which third world countries are you referring to? All of them? Some of them? The despotic ones or the dictatorial ones? None are Representative Republics and Democracy is a lot more than a 'vote' or Arts and Crafts which we have stores dedicated to. In short, what the h*ll are you talking about?

Another grand bargain? The New York Times reports that President Obama is reviving an old proposal to lower the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 28 percent (and 25 percent for manufacturers). Obama's push to lower the corporate tax rate to 28 percent comes less than a year after he raised the top individual income tax rate, paid by many small businesses, to 39.6 percent.

TOT, look at it this way; this is just another of Obamas self proclaimed phoney 'scandals'. Everybody knows taxing our way to prosperity has been historically proven to be the way to go and he's doing the best he can to make it happen except those rascally republicans keep denying him the chance to do whats good for us and our Country. After all, doing good has no end.

The big surplus that the leftists tout Obama had is a lot of hot air. They have not cut any spending and are taking in RECORD amounts of tax revenue! The last great deal that Obama got was tax increases and he gave the promise of spending cuts... that never happened. Liberal liar as usual!

They scared the pants of the investment community so they all sold last year and now they are paying their capital gains taxes. Let's see how the rest of the year shapes up.

It's a shell game pards, most investors are in the 10-15% range and can deduct capital losses from individual income taxes. In 2011-12 'short term' (hold <1 year) took a greater hit than 'long term' (hold >1yr.) investors. You are right in that many short term investors were spooked, a good lesson for staying in for the long haul rather than a hit and run grab for the brass ring.
