President Barack Obama plans a government-wide review of federal regulations, aiming to eliminate rules that stymie economic growth.

In an article published in the opinion pages of The Wall Street Journal, Obama said he intends to issue an executive order initiating a review to “make sure we avoid excessive, inconsistent and redundant regulation,” focusing on rules that “stifle job creation and make our economy less competitive.” He also suggested future regulations must do their job “while promoting economic growth.”

WOW! Thank the “Plantation Master”. It ony took two plus years to get the word from the bottom to the top.

Sorry, but this is more “tying s ribbon on the jackass’s ass”, “rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic”, or “all hat and no cattle”.

An after thought!

“Let them eat cake”!

RANT: Play with “class”

A bit of the celebration didn’t please CBS announcer Jim Nantz, though. After Shonn Greene(notes) scored a late game-sealing touchdown, many Jets, Rex Ryan included, converged in the end zone to whoop it up and send one final message to the Patriots and their fans. Nantz didn’t like this, particulary Greene’s “nap time” celebration, which saw the running back fall to the ground and mimic that he was going to sleep.

“I’ve never understood the absurdity of all the self-aggrandizing and now you’re going to cost your team 15 yards on the kick and you’re going to give Brady and his unit a chance to do something.”

*** end quote ***

I agree with Nantz. It was dumb and classless. Dumb because it opened a crack. Brady was having a bad day; the objective was to ensure that he did NOT get a chance to make a “miracle comeback”! Yes, it was unlikely, but long shots do come in. Some one wins the lotto. Lightening strikes. The worm turns. Imagine the dialogue if it did. These are supposed to be professionals. Hand the ball to the linesman and hustle back to the sidelines and see what your team needs next. Classless, in that you don’t embarrass anyone. Look like you’ve been there before. And why give the Pats locker room fodder for the next game. Dumb cubed!

RANT: Hey NJ “Civil Authorities” you are a PIA

Hey Big Brother!

(They just “seized” what I pay for — Verizon FIOS TV service — for about 3 minutes. Wipeing out the end of “Let’s Make Deal”.)

I don’t know if anyone looks at your “test”? But your clock is wrong. It ain’t 11:59!

Isn’t this a “legistative and / or regulatory” taking?

Now, the tin foil hat takes over, and I muse “civil authorities” as opposed to the “military authorities”? Do we have two criminal gangs that can take over my TV? Argh!

Argh!

POLITICAL: Keyes sees the fraud in the current system

The 2-party system: Like a rigged casino
January 07, 2011
Alan Keyes

*** begin quote ***

In this respect, the two parties are like rival factions of an organized-crime syndicate. The Democrats devise government activities that are like different rackets that they divide into tax-funded territories. Then they parcel out control and distribution of the budgets for these territories among the different groups working to maintain the party’s governmental power base. The Republicans, on the other hand, use government office to establish a protection scheme. In exchange for political support, they promise to shield their partisans from the excessive collections the Democrats use to fund their rackets. While the Republicans play on the public’s fear of what the Democrats will take from them, the Democrats play on its fear of what selfish Republicans will keep them from getting.

I contributed to his campaign. Before he went “loopy”.

It’s good to see that he sees the “barbara streisand” of the “two party” system.
