INFLATION BEING 'SMOOTHED OVER' AS IF AMERICANS WERE STUPID!



We have this gem of an article today from Bloomberg:
Headline inflation is beginning to have a greater influence on monetary policy, but not yet at the Fed,” said Crescenzi, who helps manage $1.2 trillion at Pimco in Newport Beach, California, as executive vice president. The central bank “remains anchored or hinged to the core rate,” which excludes food and energy costs.
So, Mr. Bernanke is purposely only considering ‘core’ inflation when judging the overall inflation rate.  So, the soaring prices in your energy costs to drive your car and heat your house don’t count.  Also not considered are your rapidly increasing food prices.  I’m sure for you and I it’s no problem to forego heat and food, right?  These are apparently, discretionary items to Mr. Bernanke.

Zero Tolerance Policies: Are the Schools Becoming Police States?

By John W. Whitehead
2/7/2011

“We end up punishing honor students to send a message to bad kids. But the data indicate that the bad kids are not getting the message.” -- Professor Russell Skiba
What we are witnessing, thanks in large part to zero tolerance policies that were intended to make schools safer by discouraging the use of actual drugs and weapons by students, is the inhumane treatment of young people and the criminalization of childish behavior.

Ninth grader Andrew Mikel is merely the latest in a long line of victims whose educations have been senselessly derailed by school administrators lacking in both common sense and compassion. A freshman at Spotsylvania High School in Virginia, Andrew was expelled in December 2010 for shooting a handful of small pellets akin to plastic spit wads at fellow students in the school hallway during lunch period. Although the initial punishment was only for 10 days, the school board later extended it to the rest of the school year. School officials also referred the matter to local law enforcement, which initiated juvenile proceedings for criminal assault against young Andrew.

POLITICAL DIGEST 02/08/2011 CONSERVATIVE

I post articles because I think they are of interest. Doing so doesn’t mean that I necessarily agree (or disagree) with every—or any—opinion in the posted article. Help your friends and relatives stay informed by passing the digest on.

Worth reading: Health and Climate
Excerpt: Sometime in the next 1,000 years our planet will slip into another Ice Age, if the historical cycles of the past continue to repeat. It will not be pleasant. Where are you going to get food to eat when all of our farms and ranches are covered by a perpetual ice sheet? Last time I looked, there were no more wooly mammoths around — and even if there were, they couldn’t feed the world’s 6 billion people. It will not be short. Warm periods, such as the one we are currently in, last only about 10,000 years. The cold periods that separate them last about 100,000 years. The worst prediction I have heard about global warming is that Florida will be completely under water in 500 years. If scientists unlock the secret of immortality and I’m still around at that time, I’ll only be able to reach my Miami condo by gondola. Yet that will be a piece of cake compared to a world in which Miami is approachable only with snow sleds and huskies. Have you ever wondered why some people hyperventilate about some crises and not others? Why do they froth at the mouth when they think about global warming, but remain almost indifferent to the much more serious threat of global cooling? I have a theory about that. But first a personal confession…. Yet we have been encouraged to think just the opposite by headline grabbing alarmists. Here’s amateur climatologist Al Gore telling us that a record snow storm is evidence of global warming. Here’s former Senator Robert Byrd telling us that lack of winter snow is evidence of global warming. Here is an apparently serious year 2000 prediction that English children will never experience snow. Here is a 2009 report on record-breaking snow paralyzing London. One of the worst offenders is someone who should know better: NASA scientist James Hansen, who rarely lets any climate event go by without claiming the event is evidence of global climate change.
 (Global warming has winners, in increased food production. Global Cooling—the “scientific consensus of the 1970s—has no winners. ~Bob.)

ON YOUR MARK...GET SET...DRILL!!!

Time to “Drill, Baby, Drill”
By Susan Stamper Brown, FloydReports.com

As chaos blazes a destructive path across the Middle East, leaving in its wake depressed stock markets and inflated oil prices, and as snowmaggedon makes its march across America’s Midwest trampling any thought of global warming underfoot – call me crazy, but now seems the perfect time to renew the call once and for all to cut OPEC’s umbilical cord and use the natural resources in our own country.

Including President Obama, eight presidents have promised and failed to deliver a viable plan to wean America away from foreign oil consumption. The past seven presidents had excuses, but none had a plan – nor does President Obama. Fool American voters once, shame on us. Fool us twice, shame on you. But fool us eight times?

Heavy on green energy rhetoric but light on strategy, and common sense for that matter, the president’s goal to attain 80 percent clean energy by 2035 and 1 million electric cars on the road by 2015 is impossible without a sensible plan – nor will it do anything to help us now. In July 2008, Obama promised we would be independent from Mideast oil in ten years. With eight years to go, America has grown more dependent. According to Reuters, U.S. crude oil imports from Saudi Arabia increased by 32 percent in the 2009-2010 time span.

More troubling is America’s reliance on China to provide….

SOROS 'KNEE DEEP' IN MIDDLE EAST'S UNREST!

George Soros Funded Mideast Rioters
By Aaron Klein, WorldNetDaily

JERUSALEM – Philanthropist billionaire George Soros has funded opposition organizations in Egypt and throughout the Middle East, where anti-regime chaos has already toppled the pro-Western leader of Tunisia and is threatening the rule of President Hosni Mubarak, a key U.S. ally.

Mohamed ElBaradei, one of the main opposition leaders in Egypt, has also sat on the board of an international “crisis management” group alongside Soros and other personalities who champion dialogue with Hamas, a violent offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Brotherhood, which seeks to spread Islam around the world in part by first creating an Islamic caliphate in Egypt, now backs ElBaradai, who has defended the group in the news media the last few weeks.

ElBaradei suspended his board membership in the International Crisis Group, or ICG last week, after he returned to Egypt to lead the anti-Mubarak protests.

Soros is one of eight members of the ICG executive committee....

DEBATE BILLS AND KNOW WHAT'S IN THEM BEFORE VOTING!

February 7, 2011

Dear Conservatives,

Congress is once again trying to sneak through an attack on our rights by reauthorizing the so-called "PATRIOT" Act with as little debate and scrutiny as possible.

You see, a vote is expected on Tuesday to place "PATRIOT" Act reauthorization on the Suspension Calendar, and it will pass easily unless you and I take immediate action.

No amendments will be allowed, and debate will be limited to 40 minutes.

CONGRESS - LEAVE THE 2nd AMENDMENT ALONE!

Oppose Proposed Restrictions on the 2nd AmendmentThe animosity shown the Second Amendment by the media and many of our elected representatives sworn to uphold the Constitution and the Bill of Rights is never so apparent as when a particularly heinous criminal shooting occurs. These tragedies are immediately seized upon as a springboard for introducing more gun control measures, which are usually circumventions of the Second Amendment in intent and practice, and therefore unconstitutional.

The White House Blog: Obama to Business: "Now is the Time to Invest in America"

The President walked across the park today to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce – a hub of big business that has supported the President on the Recovery Act and further infrastructure rebuilding while also giving voice to industries opposed to the health reform law – to deliver a stark message of shared responsibility for winning America’s future:

But I want to be clear: even as we make America the best place on earth to do business, businesses also have a responsibility to America.

Obama says people who hate him don't know him

By DARLENE SUPERVILLE, AP
  

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama says he doesn't take it personally when people say they hate him. And the thing he dislikes most about being president is the constant, intense scrutiny.
"The people who dislike you don't know you. The folks who hate you, they don't know you," Obama said Sunday in an interview broadcast during Fox's pre-game coverage of the Super Bowl. "What they hate is whatever funhouse mirror image of you that's out there. They don't know you."

OBAMA'S CREATION OF JOBS LABELED - 'ANEMIC'

Why Can't Obama Do the Math On Jobs?

By John Lott
Published February 07, 2011
| FoxNews.com

President Obama has a message for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce today: You have an obligation to start creating jobs. The government has done what it needs to do and any failure lies with the private sector. 
Indeed, the job numbers are bleak. Unemployment fell last month, but only because Americans have given up looking for work in record numbers. On net, 319,000 quit looking for work and left the work force in December. In November, it was even worse, 434,000. Over 1.5 million American have left the workforce since August.

GOVERNORS ASKING FOR RELIEF IN OBAMACARE!

An ObamaCare Appeal From the States

Twenty-one governors representing more than 115 million Americans have written to Kathleen Sebelius asking for more flexibility on health-care reform.


Unless you're in favor of a fully nationalized health-care system, the president's health-care reform law is a massive mistake. It will amplify all the big drivers of overconsumption and excessive pricing: "Why not, it's free?" reimbursement; "The more I do, the more I get" provider payment; and all the defensive medicine the trial bar's ingenuity can generate.
All claims made for it were false. It will add trillions to the federal deficit. It will lead to a de facto government takeover of health care faster than most people realize, and as millions of Americans are added to the Medicaid rolls and millions more employees (including, watch for this, workers of bankrupt state governments) are dumped into the new exchanges.

EGYPT SEEKING LEADERSHIP - WATCH CLOSELY!

Egypt's vice president met with the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood and other opposition groups Sunday

Egypt VP meets opposition, offers new concessions

    Egyptian anti-Mubarak protesters rest next to the tracks of a tank at Tahrir Square in Cairo, Egypt, Sunday, Feb. 6, 2011. Egypt's vice president met AP – Egyptian anti-Mubarak protesters rest next to the tracks of a tank at Tahrir Square in Cairo, Egypt, …
    CAIRO – Egypt's vice president met with the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood and other opposition groups for the first time Sunday and offered sweeping concessions, including granting press freedom and rolling back police powers in the government's latest attempt to try to end nearly two weeks of upheaval.
    But the opposition leaders held firm to a demand the government rejects: that President Hosni Mubarak step down immediately. And the source of the opposition's sudden power — the youthful protesters filling Cairo's main square — said they weren't even represented at the talks and won't negotiate until Mubarak is gone.
    "None of those who attended represent us," said Khaled Abdul-Hamid, one leader of a new coalition representing at least five youth movements that organized the 13-day-old protests. "We are determined to press on until our number one demand is met" — the ouster of Mubarak.
