Nazis really have very little tolerance for just about anything.

59-32%
 
Democrats Divided, But 45% Support key Provisions


Boned Jello

Nothing scientific about this.  Going back to my days at Free Republic (mid 90's), I noticed 32% would consistently vote a lawn turd prom queen. I'm glad to see that percentage holding steady.  California, where the governator just told some students, "I was also going to give a graduation speech in Arizona this weekend, but with my accent I was afraid they would try to deport me;" and which state just canceled several million dollars in contracts with Arizona - accounts for15% of that 32%.  Still, I will be sorry when it falls into the sea. Except for the bay area and Hollywood. 

Obama, not the anti-Christ

What we learned today

Boned Jello

We know one thing for certain now. Obama is NOT the anti-Christ. According to legend, roughly, the AC will rule benignly, and with great apparent wisdom for 3½  years before revealing himself as Satan. For those paying attention, Barry began that transformation about 8 months before assuming power. No,  Obama is somebody's tool, maybe Satan's.  He's also a low-life thug and petty punk, with all the class of an ape with a two-by-four; think Al Capone.  By now, about one-half of the dull-witted who bowed before him in 2008 have realized as much, and will begin stripping him of power about five months hence.  I hope we can survive that long.

FOX News: Specter To Hatch: "You Better Watch Out"

Quite the revealing private conversation, overheard on the Capitol Hill tram by a Fox News producer. I paraphrase:

SEN. ARLEN SPECTER (D., PA.): "You better watch out Orrin, [former Club for Growth president and Specter challenger Pat] Toomey's coming to get you next."

SEN. ORRIN HATCH (R., UTAH): "What's that?"

SEN. ARLEN SPECTER (D., PA.): "The Club for Growth, they're coming for you just like they came for me."

SEN. ORRIN HATCH (R., UTAH): "Man, they really savaged Bob [Bennett (R., Utah)]. They're coming for Republicans."

Canada: Long-gun registry a waste

"Never have I attended a killing when a registry of any of the weapons would have prevented that killing from occurring," said Shipman, who said he's seen hundreds of killings. "The long gun registry is not working to prevent gun crime as it was intended. Criminals . . . do not register their stolen or smuggled guns that are being used to wage war in our cities."
This is maybe the 127,652nd time I've read the truth "Criminals . . . do not register...," not counting bumper stickers, and it still doesn't register with dim bulbs who make, or allow these laws to be passed.  It's why we need more guns in responsible hands. As for women, if pushed to choose,they go for caliber over length.

Money Laundering

Checking the Laundry

Hand it to Ron Paul, The Senate voted 96 to 0 Tuesday to open the secretive Federal Reserve Board's emergency lending practices to a congressional audit, as well as require a detailed disclosure of who's getting the funds.   This is like when your girlfriend unwraps the bandages after rhinoplasty.  You hope for the best, but ... you know.  I can't help but think that Bernie Sanders ("The average American is beginning to wonder what goes on behind closed doors with the Fed") is hoping for the worst though.  While they're at it, how about addressing  this?

In bed with Fannie and Freddie

America's greatest economic liability is also the greatest political liability for the Democratic congressional leadership. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have exposed taxpayers to $5.4 trillion in risk from loan guarantees, with taxpayers already having covered $126 billion in losses. So far, Democrats have been reluctant to include tough reforms on the profligate government-sponsored enterprises in the financial regulation package currently making its way through the legislative process.

Of course they're not anxious.

Renewed scrutiny of the two institutions would remind the public that senior Democrats were in bed, sometimes literally, with Fannie and Freddie. House Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank of Massachusetts spent a number of years blocking various attempts to regulate government-sponsored enterprises, famously saying that that he did not see any "safety and soundness" problems worthy of note. There was good reason for Mr. Frank to look the other way, given his history of close association with Herb Moses, Fannie's assistant director for product initiatives from 1991 to 1998.
  •   Democrats were friends with financial benefits from Fannie and Freddie. Franklin Raines, a former Carter- and Clinton-administration official, pocketed $90 million as Fannie Mae's CEO - a figure bolstered by the agency's overstated earnings.
  • Former Clinton appointee Jamie Gorelick was paid $26 million as Fannie's vice chairman
  • Democratic honcho Jim Johnson, who led Sen. John Kerry's vice presidential search committee and temporarily led Mr. Obama's veep search, enjoyed $21 million.
  • Kent Conrad of North Dakota and Senate Banking Chairman Christopher Dodd of Connecticut. Fannie Mae was the biggest buyer of the outrageously risky mortgages that proved to be Countrywide's undoing.
  • Barack Obama was the second-largest recipient of contributions from Fannie and Freddie sources during his brief Senate tenure.
  • Given below-market loans directly by Countrywide Financial CEO Angelo Mozilo were Mr. Raines, Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad of North Dakota and Senate Banking Chairman Christopher Dodd of Connecticut.

Former ( and famously self-serving) president Bill Clinton (speaking out of both sides of his mouth) said it best in 2008.

"I think the responsibility the Democrats have may rest more in resisting any efforts by Republicans in the Congress or by me when I was president to put some standards and tighten up a little on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac."
