But Calipari signed the kid ...

Jim Calhoun hired the store manager as an assistant coach

How They Think

Can the myth of “certainty” be far behind?

False Premises
Can the myth of “certainty” be far behind?

Employers don’t create jobs, customers do. This week, business owners themselves exploded the myth that they are the job creators.

Previously we’d offered the argument that businesses don’t create jobs. “Customers are the engine of capitalism and of jobs,” we wrote. “Employees are hired when a willing buyer shows up at the door. Jobs are not created for any other reason.” Now business owners have weighed in to provide corroboration.

Reporting this week in the New York Times, Mokoto Rich interviewed Jeffery Braverman, owner of Nutsonline, in Cranford, N.J.. Even a $4,000 tax cut would not cause him to hire anyone. “You still need to have the business need to hire,” says Braverman. “Business demand is what drives hiring.” [blah-blah-blah]

The debunked myth (I stumbled upon), according to the Jimmy Zuma dude,  is that "Employers create jobs"

 Zuma's actual goal here is to defend Obama's crappy Jobs Bill.  To buttress the Democrat's mythical claim  of being able to create jobs (by stealing money and giving it to Solyndra).   This government has certainly destroyed millions of jobs—   with walls of anti-business taxes and regulations, but it has never created a single sustainable  private sector job.  Just like the Soviet Union never did. 

And oh!—   it's certainly true that in a land where nobody has any money, there are no customers,  but that's  a different problem; albeit  from the same source.  Any good entrepreneur will however get around that, and create new  wealth, but only if democrats stay the hell out of their way.  That's not a myth.

False Premises
OMFG!  We'll be rolling in money now!!

So let's impeach the sumbitch

Obama tears up the Constitution
The scope of his lawless disregard expands by the day

The Constitution of the United States, whose adoption we celebrate every Sept. 17, clearly lists the powers of each branch of the national government. Let’s take a look at what Barack Obama, like any president, is empowered to do and see if it squares with his actions. In Article II, Section 1, he is sworn to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Section 2 names the president as commander in chief of the armed forces, grants him the power to make treaties with the advice and consent of the Senate and to appoint ambassadors, federal judges, Cabinet officials and other federal officers. Section 3 says the president “shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”

In his two years and nine months in office, President Obama has compiled a spectacular record of noncompliance with the Constitution. Here are just some of the ways his administration has failed to execute the laws while using raw, unauthorized power:

Obama could without question be impeached by the House if the political will existed.  It doesn't for a few reasons, not the least of which is the Democrat controlled Senate would never vote to remove him (nor would half the Republicans).  Which is a shame because Obama deserves being removed from office, the sooner the better.

This list presented by the ass-hat left as justification for impeaching Bush  establishes the bar.

Anyway, I will add this article to my Sack of Stuff (Defining Articles) that are kept in the cellar,  for readers who want to reference it in the future.

BTW, Knight does not present a comprehensive list here, but his are fine, and recent additions to others already presented. 

The Reasons

Rahm Emanuel is a f'n - you know ...

Today's Alternative Truth

Chicago mayor and former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel said he doesn’t recall anything about the Obama administration’s $535 million loan to the recently bankrupt solar company Solyndra.
Rahm's Crap Is Flying

  1. Subpoena him to testify before a House committee
  2. Put him under oath
  3. Ask him if he remembers now
  4. Indict him in January, 2013



When people are taped in secret, become unknowingly famous, and then are the subject of a documentary, do they have any rights to the story? That’s the process that led to the film Shut Up Little Man. (NSFW text)

Thru Thin Walls

In 1987, two aspiring Bohemians who met at the University of Wisconsin, Mitch Deprey and Eddie Guerriero — soon to be immortalized as “Mitchell D and Eddie Lee Sausage” — left the Midwest for San Francisco, where they moved into a funky apartment on Steiner and Waller in the Lower Haight. Thanks to thin walls and alcohol, they discovered that their new next-door neighbors were Raymond, a virulent homophobe in love with the word “cocksucker,” and Peter, a bitchy queen prone to rejoinders of “SHUT UP, LITTLE MAN!”, both of them sad alcoholics inexplicably sharing a one-room apartment. Their vulgar, late-night scream fights (and occasionally, fistfights) were so entertaining that Mitch and Eddie started recording them, sharing the tapes with friends ... . [Full]

Kleaver - "If we weren't racist, we'd be pissed"

Today's Quote From Alternative Americans
"If Obama wasn't president, we would be ‘marching on the White House’" - CBC Chairman Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (No relation to the Beaver).

Unhappy members of the Congressional Black Caucus “probably would be marching on the White House” if Obama were not president, according to CBC Chairman Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.).

CBC KLAN"If [former President] Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House ... There is a less-volatile reaction in the Congressional Black Caucus because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president."

Aside from further demonstrating the Democrat leadership's inability to grasp the economic reality that gummint cannot create (non-government) jobs, Brother Kleaver confirms their putative stark racism.
