ZEITGEIST



June 11: People crowd a beach in Cocoa Beach, Fla., to watch the launch of the Delta II rocket that is carrying the NASA Glast, a NASA acronym standing for Gamma-Ray Large Area Space Telescope. NASA launched the telescope mission from nearby Cape Canaveral to scout out elusive, super high-energy gamma rays lurking in the universe.

Meanwhile, the gamma-rayed goliath known far-&-wide as THE INCREDIBLE HULK takes theaters by storm!

ROTFL! Like the trolls here dictate blog political content. I'd say they were just green with envy. Right wingers have viable blogs w/interesting content and readers, which left wing trolls are envious of and are reduced to commenting about, feeding off the crumbs which fall from the right's tables. Why? No reasonable person would go out of his way to read what a left-wing fool thinks.

Well! Thank you, B, but these poor creeturs are bad in need of eddication, so I might just drop back here once in a while to do a little constructive redassing.

It's easy work and does so much good for so many poor, needy wingbats.

They need to be readied for their permanent minority status.

If I can harden just one of them up and prevent their suicide, it will have all been worth it...especially if all the rest of them aren't saved, thereby, by our efforts.

The GW Hoover Econ Miracle Continues!!

June 16, 2008
Nearly Half of Wall St. Bank Profits Are Gone
By LOUISE STORY

Only a year ago, Wall Street reveled in an era of superlatives: record
deals, record profit, record pay. But a mere 12 months later, nearly
half of the profits that major banks reaped during that age of riches
have vanished.

The numbers are staggering. Between early 2004 and mid-2007, a period
of unprecedented wealth on Wall Street, seven of the nation’s largest
financial companies earned a combined $254 billion in profits.

But since last July, those same banks — Bank of America, Citigroup,
JPMorgan Chase, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs and
Morgan Stanley — have written down the value of the assets they hold by
$107.2 billion, gutting their earnings and share prices. Worldwide, the
reckoning totals $380 billion, much of which reflects a plunge in the
value of tricky mortgage investments.

More downbeat news is expected this week, when several big banks,
including the ailing Lehman Brothers, are scheduled to report results
for the latest quarter. As the tally of losses keeps growing, many bank
executives — and their shareholders — keep asking the same question:
When will the pain end?

But the finish line just seems to keep moving further away. Even when
the losses end, bank executives are looking toward a new era of lower
returns, thinner profits and fewer jobs. Greater scrutiny from
regulators is forcing Wall Street firms to reduce their use of
leverage, or borrowed money, which had fueled profits in good times but
backfired when the credit crisis struck last summer. Nearly every
finance company is cutting jobs and battening down.

How can that be? If all the hysterical Doomsday scenarios (brought on by Bush) are to be believed, Obama will inherit an (irreversible) global economic meltdown, a global environmental one, and more terrorist activity (because Bush "created" them).

Economy forces major shift in spending
Consumers stay home and opt for frozen foods, Spam and crafts
By Jennifer Waters, MarketWatch
Last update: 2:39 p.m. EDT June 15, 2008
CHICAGO (MarketWatch) -- Wondering how consumers are coping in such a troubled economy? Look at what's selling instead of which sales are tanking.
As consumers muddle through all that is plaguing the U.S. economy, they have battened down the hatches and sharply shifted their spending habits, turning to money-saving options that run the gamut from transportation to health as they find ways to pay for dramatic increases in gasoline and food.
Video: Vespa sales take off
Vespa sales have spiked as oil prices rise. MarketWatch's Jennifer Waters takes a test ride to see whether the hype matches reality. (June 13)
What emerges is a new paradigm of consumerism that some experts believe will live long after this economic crisis is resolved.
"Suddenly consumers are focused on buying what they have to have as opposed to buying what they want to have," said Howard Davidowitz, chairman of Davidowitz & Associates, a New York-based retail consulting and investment-banking firm.
"This is a permanent change for Americans, who will face a declining standard of living over the next 20 years," he added

Two things I notice is that the MySpace kiddoes are all about race and racism, and that they are just unable to talk about anything, even if it is not political. SURPRISE!

Not sure how a Gamma observatory has anything to do with race....but so be it I guess.

FJ, it is the wide angle thing I am most interested in. The wider the field, the better that we can determine distances from phenomena that occurs. The problem so far with gamma radiation observatories is that we have had a lot of trouble agreeing on how these things are away from us.

To the MySpace kids: please continue to underestimate who we are and what we understand. Someday, if you grow up, you will realize how badly that can backfire. But I seriously do not care about that. You think you rattle me with childish names, when really children should be quiet when the adults are speaking.

To date, not a one of those silly asses has debated me one a single political ideal of any kind. In fact, what I get is that "we don't have time" and "oh I cannot do that." Well of course you cannot. That is because you have no education, and worse, your families have not raised you to know how to deal with adults in a civilized discourse.

I tell you what....let me predict:

Instead of sensible answers or questions, you will just blather more insults and names and you will think that that impresses me somehow. SHUSH, children, when the adults are speaking it is rude to interrupt.

Meanwhile in the REAL WORLD, outside the bounds of Al Gore's fictional global warming Imaginationland..

In February of 2007 a small group named the Tennessee Center for Policy Research published an interesting little story that made Al Gore, the king of global warming alarmism, look a tad foolish. The report that TCPR sent out showed that Al Gore's own home was an energy hog. The TCPR report revealed that Al Gore's Tennessee mansion used more energy each month than the average American household uses in an entire year. In a response to this report, Gore claimed that he was diligently working to make his home more green, but now it looks like Gore is being gored again because a year down the line his energy use hasn't gone down. It hasn't even stayed level. It actually increased by 10%. How will the media handle this bloated increase despite Gore's claims of trying to improve?

In 2007, to a sensational reception the TCPR noted that the Gore family burned through energy at an amazing rate saying, "Last August alone, Gore burned through 22,619 kWh -- guzzling more than twice the electricity in one month than an average American family uses in an entire year. As a result of his energy consumption, Gore’s average monthly electric bill topped $1,359."

Mora: Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo are ‘first and second identifiable causes of U.S. combat deaths in Iraq.’»
Today, the Senate Armed Services Committee held a hearing on detainee interrogation. Testifying before the committee, former Navy general counsel Alberto Mora, who battled within the Pentagon to shut down the use of torture, blasted the Bush administration’s abusive detention practices as leading to the recruitment of new radicals and the deaths of more American soldiers:

[T]here are serving U.S. flag-rank officers who maintain that the first and second identifiable causes of U.S. combat deaths in Iraq — as judged by their effectiveness in recruiting insurgent fighters into combat — are, respectively the symbols of Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo.

How DARE we illiterate Flat-Earthers point out something like that? Do we not know our PLACE? How is it that an average citizen can look at his elitism and scoff? He is the representative of the New Aristocracy, and they expect to be obeyed, not questioned. When the Queen of England sells a plot of land, the commoners have no say in that, so how do you suspect that we can criticize AlGore for anything that he does? He is preaching the new religion. We illiterates are expected to just buckle and BELIEVE because we have been told to do so.

So, the next time your representative gets into THEIR private jet and burns 5 times what the average car driver will burn in a year, you just have to remember that it is because your bettors have told us that that is only rational, and we should allow for that. WE need to keep our thermostats in the house at uncomfortable levels to support that kind of egregious arrogance.

If you keep talking like that, you are going to sound dangerously like some of the people that founded this country.

We surely cannot have THAT.

both Al and Tipper Gore work out of their home and she argued that "the bottom line is that every family has a different carbon footprint. And what Vice President Gore has asked is for families to calculate that footprint and take steps to reduce and offset it."

A carbon footprint is a calculation of the CO2 fossil fuel emissions each person is responsible for, either directly because of his or her transportation and energy consumption or indirectly because of the manufacture and eventual breakdown of products he or she uses.

The vice president has done that, Kreider argues, and the family tries to offset that carbon footprint by purchasing their power through the local Green Power Switch program — electricity generated through renewable resources such as solar, wind, and methane gas, which create less waste and pollution. "In addition, they are in the midst of installing solar panels on their home, which will enable them to use less power," Kreider added. "They also use compact fluorescent bulbs and other energy efficiency measures and then they purchase offsets for their carbon emissions to bring their carbon footprint down to zero."

There is no possible way that you can argue something as silly as "99.9%" of all scientists.

Was this not the same group that wants to discharge people that disagree because their fields do no coincide with a familiarity with atmospheric science?

When I made the same argument against people with backgrounds in biology and medicine, zoology and the like, it was readily admitted that most people that signed the Kyoto accords really didn't have a background in planetary climate change and, moreover, there ARE people in planetary science that do not agree. Quite a field of them actually.

And, if you are really tired of preaching to people that know better, the answer is simple.

GO AWAY, childrens, and let the adults speak. If not, be aware that there are people with functioning brains that do not drink your cooliad. To hell with what you think about it or not, since you cannot argue a single thing about any of it.

Oh, and by all means.

"99.9 %" is about as accurate as the 99.9% of "everyone" in "everyone knows" and "everyone hates you" and "The whole country."

They're trying to intimidate and silence the opposition by marginalizing it into being freakishly out-of-step with "The People."

But it's projection.

These trolls are part of the Moveon and DailyKos far left and it is their mindset that comprises .1% of the population.

A little more than that, perhaps, but far from being the "majority consensus" that they insist ALL America embraces, whether it be their stealth economic and cultural Marxism, or Al Gore's ridiculous narrative of Global Warming (now conveniently called "Climate Change").

They're hateful, bigoted freaks accusing mainstream conservatives of being hateful bigoted freaks.

1) the climate is undergoing a pronounced warming trend beyond the range of natural variability;
2) the major cause of most of the observed warming is rising levels of the greenhouse gas CO2;
3) the rise in CO2 is the result of burning fossil fuels;

Bush gets rock-bottom rating from Americans: survey
Published: Tuesday June 17, 2008








Less than one-quarter of Americans think President George W. Bush is doing a good job, giving him the worst marks of his two-term presidency, a poll showed Tuesday.

The poll also showed 80 percent think the United States is on the wrong track.

So perhaps Mr Bush's most significant legacy, as far as Britain is concerned, will be the destruction of the instinctive trust of America and its leaders that once prevailed here. It is no exaggeration to say that Mr Bush has done more damage to relations between our two nations than any president in living memory. This rupture is not an accident of circumstance; there are no impersonal forces of history to blame. This sorry state of affairs is the consequence of the actions of a single leader and his small coterie of advisers.

Acolyte. When Exxon-Mobil was skeptical and trotted out their own scientists, your church viciously attacked that very corporation, condemning their scientists as "shills for Exxon-Mobil."

Exxon-Mobil gets pressured and bullied, fires the scientists and flip-flops, and now their cooperative (i.e. submissive and obedient) position is rewarded by being hailed as credible and authoritative.

Meanwhile, this projecting buttboy delusively goes by the handle of "lemming killer" while posting...

...a list of lemmings.

And throughout, with all that as evidence, this plebe betrays a small, petty, political mind that is easily exposed as one that is decidedly not scientific, but demagogic.

"Less than one-quarter of Americans think President George W. Bush is doing a good job, giving him the worst marks of his two-term presidency, a poll showed Tuesday.

The poll also showed 80 percent think the United States is on the wrong track."

Might reflect their disappointment with the new Democratc congress, too, which gets polled lower than Bush, wretch.

Congress ratings are low because Democrats have no use for their gutless party and want it to be MORE militant, not less, which is the opposite of what a dink like you wants to see.

Too complicated for you?

Add that to the fact that the whole country hates the GOPig/Perv side and you get these ratings.

Only because mindless tools like you piglets will follow your gauleiters anywhere, does the "administration" have ratings above single digits.

Last time I checked, both peer-reviewed climatalogists with PhDs and "ADDITIONAL" support from scientists with a much better handle on climatology than a boardmember on Coca-Cola or Caterpillar, Inc. were outright disqualified and roundly rejected with the obligatory ridicule because they supposedly did not have enough expertise, were too corporate, and--most importantly-- disagreed with the "consensus"--which, it appears, includes boardmembers from Coka Cola and Caterpillar, Inc.

Miss that?

Of course you did. You have blinders on that first and foremost mask self-awareness.

Obviously, your sole qualifier for what makes one a credible authority is whether or not they're titheing members of The Church, that's all.

"Exxon was bullied...hahahahaha..."

Translation: Yup. They were bullied.

"...they're (sic) scientist/whores got so embarrassed at what they were doing that they could no longer deny it."

Now is that any way to talk about neophytes to The Church which you just honorably included on a roll-call of parishioners to give credence to your faith?

"Corporations are included -- obviously -- because they take a lot of convincing and do a lot of research before they are willing to come aboard.

Duh!!"

Or resist doing so to begin with. Duh.

"What a whored out, creep tool..."

Leave Blossom out of this.

"Congress ratings are low because Democrats have no use for their gutless party and want it to be MORE militant, not less."

Speak for yourself and your small cabal of militant, far-left crypto-Marxists.

I ask you again: Why did both Obama and Clinton refuse to boast "I'm a bigger liberal than my opponent!" but instead tried to outconserve one another, while McCain had to explicitly reassure again and again that he was "conservative"?

Because loud & proud liberalism--like yours--is un-American and repulsive.

Like you.

"... which is the opposite of what a dink like you wants to see."

You're projecting, fool.

"Too complicated for you?"

Projection again, fool. Your mind cannot think outside the closed box you're trapped in and any attempt to get out is too complicated.

That's the diabolical genius of the villains who put you there. It's like Chinese handcuffs. Any attempt to pull away only causes constriction.

That's but one reason why you're always in such a foul mood and why you rant and rave and foam at the mouth.

They're cries for help, only you're in denial and programmed to bite any helping hand like the vicious animal that a lefty like you is (until you finally get power. Then you pretend you've always been a civilized conservative.)

"Add that to the fact that the whole country hates the GOPig/Perv side and you get these ratings."

The "whole" country? As in "everyone?"

Again, that's a typical rhetorical tactic used by the left meant to intimidate and marginalize the opposition by suggesting that they're antisocial oddballs.

Of course, the opposite is true.

"Only because mindless tools like you piglets will follow your gauleiters anywhere, does the 'administration' have ratings above single digits."

Again, the opposite is true. Bush's approvals are low in large part because conservatives are independent-minded and feel free to bail for whatever reason.

The Borg collective, however, is monolithic-minded, driven by ideology, and will never bail on their cult-leaders no matter how depraved or even treacherous they are if it would benefit the viscerally-hated opposition in any small measure.

You imps exemplify what "loyal to a fault" means.

"Don't burn your synapse out on this. Just stick your pinhead safely back up your fat, yellow, chickenhawk ass and pray to the skydaddy for deliverance from your disgusted betters."

Projection, worm. Your inferior character and mental faculties were made manifest long ago and disgust everyone else outside your coven. All you can do is rail and foam at the mouth because you're envious and need to "prove" something.

And you've succeeded.

Like I said, throughout all this, you proved a small, petty, political mind that is easily exposed as one that is decidedly not scientific, but demagogic, so I suggest that you keep your mouth shut because any cause you support is quickly made suspect and becomes discredited by your rabid blathering that's compelled by a fragile ego which spitefully seeks to destroy, rather than follow and emulate, its betters.

Flat Earth Lunatics:

Report: Science teacher mixed religion, class
Mount Vernon school board to meet
THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

Investigators found that Mount Vernon teacher John Freshwater did burn crosses on some students' arms with an electrostatic device.

A Mount Vernon teacher undermined science instruction in the public school district by discrediting evolution in his classroom and focusing on creationism and intelligent design, a probe has found.

Eighth-graders who were taught by John Freshwater frequently had to be re-taught in high school what they were supposed to have learned in Freshwater’s class, according to outside investigators hired by the district.

For 11 years, other teachers in the school district and people in the community complained about Freshwater preaching his Christian beliefs in class and slamming scientific theories, a school administrator told investigators.

“There is a significant amount of evidence that Mr. Freshwater’s teachings regarding subjects related to evolution were not consistent with the curriculum of the Mount Vernon City Schools and state standards,” the consultants reported.

Freshwater had been told to stop teaching intelligent design and creationism, but he continued, the report found.

HR on Call Inc., the consultants who investigated allegations against Freshwater, released their findings today. Mount Vernon school board members will meet today to discuss the report and decide what, if any, action they will take.

The report confirms that Freshwater burned crosses onto students’ arms, using an electrostatic device, in December. Freshwater told investigators the marks were Xs, not crosses. But all of the students interviewed in the investigation reported being branded with crosses. The investigation report includes a photo of one student’s arm with a long vertical line and a short horizontal line running through it.

The family of one student who was burned filed a federal lawsuit last week against Freshwater and the district, saying the student’s civil rights were violated.

Today, the family’s attorney, Jessica Philemond, said it was unfortunate that the school district didn’t do anything sooner to stop Freshwater.

“These concerns had been going on for at least 11 years and the school had not done anything,” she said.

A teacher who worked in Freshwater’s classroom last year also reported to investigators that Freshwater told his class that homosexuality is a sin.

Neither Freshwater nor his attorney, Roger Weaver, could be reached for comment last night. Freshwater’s friend, Dave Daubenmire, defended him.

“With the exception of the cross-burning episode … I believe John Freshwater is teaching the values of the parents in the Mount Vernon school district,’’ he said.

Daubenmire is a former London High School football coach whose district was sued in 1999 by the American Civil Liberties Union because he led his players in prayer at games, practices and meetings.

“Do you think there are other teachers in the public classroom that are trying to drive their opinions in the classroom?’’ Daubenmire asked. “I don’t care who you are. You cannot separate your value system from your teaching.’’

The debate about Freshwater’s actions became public in April after he refused to remove a Bible from his desk, as the district had ordered.

The report says he was insubordinate for failing to remove the Bible and other religious materials from his classroom but also found other issues about his teaching and behavior.

And he's not the only YOUNG REPUBLICAN perv!!

Next, we move to Michigan, where Michael Flory, "The former head of the Michigan Federation of Young Republicans admitted today that he sexually abused a colleague during a national convention here last summer. Flory, a 32-year-old attorney from Jackson, Mich., pleaded guilty to sexual battery on the day he was to stand trial for rape." Ah, those randy young Republicans!

To fill out our GOP trio, we go to the Hoosier state of Indiana and meet up with Glenn Murphy Jr., "the chairman of the Clark County Republican Party -- who last month was elected president of the Young Republican National Federation."

Uh, make that the former president of the Young Republican National Federation. You see, Murphy ran into a legal problem and had to abruptly resign the position.

"The Clark County Sheriff's Department on Friday began investigating Murphy for alleged criminal deviate conduct -- potentially a class B felony -- after speaking with a 22-year-old man who claimed that on July 31, Murphy performed an unwanted sex act on him while the man slept in a relative's Jeffersonville home."

Oh, dear me. But there's more: "In 1998, a 21-year-old male filed a similar report with Clarksville police claiming Murphy attempted to perform a sex act on him while he was sleeping. Charges were never filed in that case."

So the next time a Republican leader comes to your town, lock up the men, women, children -- and we suggest your pets, too.

Until next week, remember our motto: So many Republican hypocrites, so little time.

Catch up with you soon.

Lou Dobbs: Bush Should Be Impeached for Salmonella Outbreak
CNN host says leadership in 'sorry condition' and inability to 'protect the American consumer' is 'sufficient reason to impeach a president.'

By Jeff Poor
Business & Media Institute
6/20/2008 12:47:50 PM



CNN’s Lou Dobbs has been on a tear about the recent tainted-tomato salmonella outbreak, but this time he’s taken it a step further and is calling for the ultimate political punishment.



The “Lou Dobbs Tonight” host placed the blame for the recent salmonella outbreak squarely on President George W. Bush, calling for his impeachment on the June 19 broadcast. Contaminated tomatoes from an unknown source or sources have sickened 383 people since April, according to the Associated Press.



“You know, I have heard a lot of reasons over the years as to why George W. Bush should be impeached,” Dobbs said. “For them to leave the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in this state, its leadership in this sorry condition and to have no capacity apparently or will to protect the American consumer – that is alone to me sufficient reason to impeach a president who has made this agency possible and has ripped its guts out in its ability to protect the American consumer.”



“It’s insane what’s going on here,” said a visibly angry Dobbs. “Is there any sense of embarrassment on the part of the leadership of that agency?”



On June 18, Dobbs called the FDA “excessively intellectually challenged.” The night before he called the FDA “moronic.”



“The FDA, led by complete moronic, unengaged incompetents,” Dobbs said on his June 17 broadcast. “The idea that they would sit there and say that they’re not going to reveal where a cluster of this outbreak occurred, this is arrogant beyond belief. Who in the world do these idiots think they are? Who do they think they’re working for?”



He also implicated Bush in that tirade: “As for this administration, were a responsible president at the helm of this country, I would wonder why he is not taking action, but then again, this is of course his FDA and his legacy.”

Late Loan Payments Hurt Smaller Lenders That Dodged Subprime Mess


By David Cho
Washington Post Staff Writer
Sunday, June 22, 2008

Increasing struggles by consumers and businesses to make payments on a variety of loans, not just mortgages, are setting off a new wave of trouble in the financial sector that is battering even institutions that had steered clear of the subprime-home-loan debacle.

Late payments on home-equity loans are at a record high, according to fresh data from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. The delinquency rates on loans for cars, small businesses and construction are spiking to levels not seen in a decade or more.

Unlike last year, when soaring mortgage defaults sparked a crisis of confidence in the financial system, the root of these problems is the downturn in the broader economy. Simply put, consumers and businesses are strapped for cash with job losses growing and retail sales falling, economists said.

"We are not finished with the mortgage problem, but you are starting to see increased delinquencies in other forms of consumer debt," said Paul Kasriel, an economist at Northern Trust Securities. "We are in the eye of the hurricane. We had the first wave of the credit crisis, and it was quite damaging. But there's another wave coming, and it's likely to be as destructive."

But according to a government report, offshore oil wouldn't have much of an impact on supply or prices until 2030!!"

Like most of the wingo buffoons don't know there are thousands of CAPPED oil wells in the US because it's "like money in the bank...just going up and up all the time," as one oil executive put it.

Well, you may be right. You and you're three weak, dim witted fans are past being a real pack of bores.

Another Leftist Witch Hunt...

Branding Crosses on the Arms of Students. No Doubt Antonin Scalia Would Approve. "The school board of a small central Ohio community voted unanimously Friday to fire a teacher accused of preaching his Christian beliefs despite staff complaints and using a device to burn the image of a cross on students' arms."

"McCain is so different from Bush. The only issues they agree on are education, immigration,
Iraq, abortion, Supreme Court judges, Social Security, tax breaks for the wealthy, wire-tapping,
trade, health care, the Middle East, same-sex marriage and Medicare."

"Haynes, Feith, Yoo, Bybee, Gonzales and--at the apex--Addington, should never
travel outside the U.S., except perhaps to Saudi Arabia and Israel. They broke the law;
they violated their professional ethical code. In the future, some government may build
the case necessary to prosecute them in a foreign court, or in an international court.'
Augusto Pinochet made a trip to London, and his life was never the same afterwards."

"Increasing struggles by consumers and businesses to make payments on a variety of loans, not just mortgages, are setting off a new wave of trouble in the financial sector that is battering even institutions that had steered clear of the subprime-home-loan debacle."

Except, of course, Democrats like Barack Obama and other high ranking D's who got sweetheart deals.

Kinda like Democratic patriarch Joe Kennedy Sr. making a fortune in the stock market just before the Great Depression.

John - do you really think Obama got a deal on his mortgage?

I will tell you - most successful people his age got similar deals.

In fact, if he got the normal rate, it would have been very odd - considering his huge jump in income.

Second

Joe Kennedy - Not that I care, but Kennedy made his money in film before the market crashed - He made a lot of money on the collapse of certain stocks - RKO and others. But that was short selling.

Btw - Kennedy was not the leftist you imagine - He was a right wing Democrat - so keep that in mind. OK champ?

I know Kennedy was right-wing. But I appreciate your input.
