GOVERNACIDE: Poor growth tied to fiat money; it’s a “killer”

Friday, October 26, 2012

Markets Alert
from The Wall Street Journal

U.S. economic growth picked up in the third quarter as consumers spent more, federal government spending accelerated and the housing industry improved in the months leading up to November’s presidential election.

The nation’s gross domestic product–the broadest measure of goods and services produced by the economy–grew at an annual rate of 2% between July and September, the Commerce Department said Friday.

A national disgrace.

IF you believe the Gooferment’s numbers!

Doesn’t “feel” like 2% to me. Just like “unemployment” doesn’t feel like 8%. And, inflation, don’t make me laff, ain’t ZERO! (Gasoline four years ago was UNDER $2 / per gallon and yday I paid 3¾$ per gallon! That’s 80% over four years or 20% per year. Consider that gas costs gets built into EVERY product and service created!)

Sorry, but we a “KILLING” people.

I trace it back to the “funny money”. It allows the politicians and bureaucrats to fool us. And, the standard that money should represent.

A new low in political campaign ads.

If I had a child, or even worse a daughter, I would be horrified.

POLITICAL: Once again, who knew what and when? Benghazi-gate file

Up on Frequency

*** begin quote ***

In recent posts, we’ve asked the fundamental question about the terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi, which resulted in the deaths of four Americans: what did the administration know, and when did they know it?

As we’ve noted, there was a steady stream of intelligence reporting on the attack, delivered at the FLASH/CRITIC level. Messages assigned that priority must be delivered to the President within 10 minutes of receipt. This traffic captured conversations between the Islamist factions responsible for the attack, before and during the assault on our compound. That’s why administration claims that incident was some sort of “demonstration gone bad” are nothing more than a lie.

*** end quote ***

This is a disaster. 

The President’s response to this is inexplicable.

There’s is no doubt that some one told the UN Ambassador to get out on the TV circuit and reaffirm the Administration’s tale.

So, as always, who knew what? When? And, what is the path of the strategy!

Argh!

Mississippi passenger detained, stranded in Hawaii by No-Fly List

By Elliott Freeman

Oct 17, 2012 – yesterday in Travel

*** begin quote ***

A Mississippi man flying to visit his wife in Japan on Monday was detained during a stop in Hawaii and has been barred from reboarding his flight – or any other flight – because his name came up on the U.S. No-Fly List, leaving him stranded on the island.

Gulfport resident Wade Hicks, Jr., boarded a military jet at Travis Air Force Base in San Francisco so he could spend time with his newlywed wife, a U.S. Navy lieutenant stationed in Okinawa, Japan, the Canada Free Press reports.

According to Hicks, when the plane stopped for refueling at Hickam Air Base on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, he was escorted from the plane and detained by armed military personnel. After several hours, a representative of U.S. Customs and Border Protection arrived and told him he was pulled off of the flight because he was on the no-fly list.

Why was he put on the list? “They have given me no reason. They just basically are telling me, ‘You can’t fly because we said so,'” Hicks said in an interview with radio talk show host Doug Hagmann. “They didn’t know how I even left Travis Air Force Base.”

Sorry, but any bureaucratic organization that is this stupid needs to be put out of its misery.

It was a bad idea to start. Made worse over time. Unionized.

Just a waste of valuable human attention, time, and effort.

Close it down now.

The “terrorists” won by changing our way of life and getting us to do stupid things.

How dumb are we?
