The Walk of Shame

Professor Terry Lovell teaches

Time To Choose Sides

Must be why Professor Terry Lovell is rated highly by his students - 3.8 on a 4.0 scale. This is one of  the best videos produced on problem of illegal immigration. Impossible to not understand.

Basically, if you can't punch a hole in his argument, it seems then you must demand the immediate removal from office of Obama - and his entire administration.  No?  What am I missing, pray tell?

Tesla Recharge Cost?

The Survey Sez ... ?

I watched an intriguing show about the new Tesla Model S sedan on the Wealth channel.  It (seats 5) will supposedly get 160 miles on batteries (the 50K price quote; the 300 mile range quoted is with  largest battery option +$$).  Here's the question that needs answering. If I use my portable generator to recharge it, how many gallons would  be consumed?  Not a trick question, because I don't know the answer.  Does anyone out there know?

News From the Farm

NYT advises Dems to shut down the government
and blame it on Republicans --

  Mr. Biden and the Senate should make it clear to the freshman House members who are really driving their chamber’s position that they will not permit reckless cuts this year. Then let the freshmen explain to an angry public why they closed the government’s doors to score ideological points. [...]
Napoleon with news from the farm

Republicans claim they will not agree on a penny less than $61 billion, which is too little for some more aggressive freshmen. If the Democrats try to compromise on even half that amount, they will be still be doing enormous damage to many programs and threatening a recovery that is starting to show signs of real life.

The fiscal crisis of the federal government, states, cities and school districts could be solved simply by raising the taxes on the rich and on corporations. We should not be cutting school funding and laying off teachers, on the contrary we should be expanding education to make it free from K to Ph.D., as it was in some state only a few decades ago. We should not be cutting back public services, but rather expanding them by creating a single payer health care system, one that provides free health care to all.
I'm sorry, that last paragraph is from the Socialist Party USA's screed. I get them confused with the NYT.


GM bailout:

GM bailout:
Why did only unionized workers keep their Cadillacs?

  Bruce Gump, one of the workers who lost most of his pension and his health and life insurance plans, said what really disappoints him is how Geithner justified his decision. “Mr. Geithner justified that by saying in the press that there was no commercial necessity to do anything for those people,” Gump told The DC. “So, to him, we were just ‘those people’ and he thought that commercial necessity was a justification to out certain groups.” [House Oversight Committee likely to investigate White House for treating non-union employees worse than unionized after GM bailout]

Obama Leading Unions Against General Motors

Chairman Darrell Issa is planning to dig into the Obama administration’s decision to cut more than 20,000 private-sector workers’ pensions and eliminate their health and life insurance plans during the General Motors (GM) bailout in 2009. Bravo. What I'm really interested in however, is seeing administration officials water-boarded over the Obamunist's seizure of  Chrysler, giving the pink-slip to union thugs, and putting Chrysler bond holders against the wall and shooting them.  But oh, none of this really concerns my sense of right and wrong;  I want to vilify Obama because he's a Black man.
