More evidence emerges that Chrysler Dealer closings was politically motivated

This story is about ready to explode. All the ingredients are there for a gigantic political scandal that would shake the Obama administration to its foundation and perhaps take down several high ranking officials. All that’s needed is one connecting piece of evidence that would tie the White House Automotive Task Force to some political arm of the Democratic party.

I’m shocked that POLITICS might have entered into the consideration of what dealers got nuked.

Chicago style?

Hopefully those dealers will get some measure of compensation from an obvious violation of the Fifth Amendment (The “takings” clause for those who went to gooferment skool!)

And, maybe the mainstream media will recover some stones to do some real reporting.

POLITICAL: Notre Dame accomplished labeling Obama as an abortionist

2 points of truth among Obama’s ‘wild word fraud’
Posted: May 20, 2009
Jill Stanek fought to stop “live-birth abortion” after witnessing one as a registered nurse at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Ill.

*** begin quote ***

But one thing is for sure: Obama has now been branded as radically pro-abortion. What pro-lifers have unsuccessfully attempted since 2004 when Obama ran for U.S. Senate, he and Notre Dame accomplished in a month.

*** end quote ***

I guess we outed two abortion supporters — Notre Dame and Obama.

It was terrible price to pay. The loss of a once great Catholic university.

TECHNOLOGY: My book “CHURCH 10●19●62” gets put on Amazon automagically

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

200905270823.jpg

A few interesting points:

  1. The name gets screwed up; the dots don’t translate.
  2. There is an out of print entry created.
  3. The Amazon mark up; why not just buy it from Lulu?
  4. There’s no vanity URL; finding it is a chore.

If you are interested in buying it, save yourself the 30% markup going to Amazon and go buy it directly from Lulu.

Easiest way to get to the book on Amazon is by searching for “church 10?19?62”.

Cheapest way to get the book is on Lulu directly: http://stores.lulu.com/store.php?fAcctID=638039

p.s., On Lulu, the download version is only a few dollars. Unless you need a big bug killer, I’d go for the download.

WRITING: The Last Reader (An index card novel)

“News 8 has recently revealed serious flaws in the way the FAA licenses mechanics who fix planes.”

The downward spiral continued. At first, schools just papered it over with phony tests and declining scores. But soon, it was official. Future generations were not learning to read. Not that they could not; just that they would not. Large percentages of the population were content to ignore the way data, information, knowledge, and wisdom were transferred. And, it was global; although the debate was over willingness or poverty. Some said it was the iphone. Some said it was TV. Some said it was “society’s fault”. The conclusion was that in “rich” countries it was unwillingness and in “poor” countries it was access. Bottom line: humans were losing their ability to communicate with past generations or with each other without speaking.

John was an old man. Luckily, he’d chosen to live in the Pennsylvania Dutch country. An area that was gently stuck in the late 1800’s. It meant that he could eat locally. Commerce had retrenched into a 1890’s model. Goods and services didn’t move more than twenty miles. Maintaining cars and refining gasoline require people who can read. Humanity had regressed to an oral model of knowledge transfer. People traveled great distances with documents for him to read. There was no electricity anymore; there was no one to read how to maintain the systems. Medical care had regressed to the same era; the medieval apprentice model was in use for training new doctors. Specialists and lab tests were a thing of the past. Drugs were just unavailable at any price. Politics was very local. There was no newspapers; no news and no way to transmit it. Eventually all the ipods and iphones died. There were massive die offs in the cities as people fought for ever scarcer stuff. Turf wars erupted. Refugees from the city, (the so called golden horde), were killed by the rural peasants who had not enough for themselves, their families, and their neighbors. 300 Million become 3 million. Two political parties emerged — the Democrats saying that they had led us to save the planet and the Republicans saying that they had led us back to the simpler time we all wanted. Luckily, there wasn’t much wealth to be political about; politicians starved just like ordinary people, just a little slower. John died that winter of a flu. Some flu or another.

The human population was eventually extinct. A victim of technology and stupidity.
