For those who are sweltering in this extra hot summer … it’s been my experience that really cold winters are often followed by really hot summers. Ditto the mild ones. It’s not a global crisis. It’s just the weather.

HOUSE DELAYS DEBT VOTE

posted by Pistol Pete

Actually,I’m just posting this to see if I was successful in changing from HTML mode to visual mode.I also cleaned out cache of cookies and temporary files.It took quite a while,so I don’t think I’ve ever done it before.As most of you know,I get up very early to look for things I think might be of interest to you,elicit some comments and maybe,a smile or a laugh-something we haven’t had much chance to do lately.I have no words to describe my gratitude to all of you for your help,kindness and above all,friendship.Ting and I have been good friends since Hillbuzz and later M4U.She’s a very special person who helped me through the worst time I’ve had in a very long time.

I can never hope to have the skills some of you have,especially Chrissy.I don’t tweet,mySpace or Facebook.I don’t have an IPod,IPad,or Xbox.I can’t burn CD’s,download I-Tunes,hell I don’t even know how to text!Still,I use all my limited skills to bring you something everyday.God Bless You All.

THE FRIDAY POWER-FINALLY-RESTORED GRUDGE

posted by Pistol Pete

We had a second severe storm in 3 weeks here Wednesday night.Our power went out about 9:30PM and didn’t come back on until late last night.After my first real cup of coffee and a hot shower I jumped on to see what was going on. Ironically,the Rockford City Council had a meeting with ComEd people to ask why it took 3 days for some residents to get their power restored.
PS-ComEd raised their rates 30% 2 months ago to finance their new ‘smart grid.’They said it would save customers money in “the long run”.Trust us,heh heh.

HOYER ENDORSES 14TH AMENDMENT AS LAST-RESORT SOLUTION
Last resort my butt;his plan was to pull this if he didn’t get what he wanted all along.
Like Slick Willy said ‘let him do it and let the courts try to stop him.’
This would be an impeachable offense for any other president but him,and he knows it.

Some straight talk about the economy

By Chrissy the Hyphenated

Click graphics to embiggen for easier reading.

In a symbiotic relationship, change in one organism causes change in the other.

In a synonymous relationship, change in one organism is the change in the other.

It is important to appreciate this distinction with respect to Tax Rates and Government Revenues.

Tax Rates and Government Revenues are SYMBIOTIC, not … I repeat NOT SYNONYMOUS.

Yes, we need a balanced approach of cuts in spending and increases in government revenues so that we can start beating down this horrible debt that is threatening to swallow our nation.

But some people talk like increasing Tax Rates is synonymous with increasing Government Revenues. It’s not.

Chrissy’s Site Bites: http://news.webshots.com/photo/2099636230056011884cFIAWF

Raising and lowering the Tax Rates affects Government Revenues, but the impact may be in the opposite direction from that desired.

Conservatives are calling for lowering Tax Rates, because we believe we are on the right hand side of the Laffer Curve, the place where lowering Tax Rates will increase Government Revenues and raising Tax Rates will reduce Government Revenues.

Why do we think this? Because we already HAVE the highest “soak the rich” tax rates in the developed world!

The job creators in this country already fork over HALF their income to politicians to spend as THEY choose.

How could it POSSIBLY encourage the private sector to invest in job-creation for politicians to make their own piece of the pie even bigger?

And aren’t the repeated calls to make the rich pay their “fair” share more about ENVY than about FAIRNESS?

IMHO, a truly FAIR tax rate would be a FLAT tax where EVERYONE pays the exact same percentage of their income to support the government programs we all benefit from.

From Angelaisms:

“We certainly are looking down the barrel of a fiscal crisis, but it’s not the default boogeyman that Obama keeps trying to scare us with. When 40% of every dollar spent by the federal government is borrowed money, and the only solutions coming out of Establishment D.C. are ones that aim to increase that percentage, what you have is a crisis of confidence of world-altering proportions.

The United States of America is a load-bearing wall on the global scene — one that you people have been going after with pickaxes and power tools in hopes of finding Narnia on the other side.

Stop the finger-pointing. Stop the blaming. Stop the word games, the fear-mongering, and the outright lying. Stop kicking the can down the road and at our children’s heads. Cut the size of government, cap the spending for real, and balance the budget.

Do your jobs. Or we’ll find others who will.”

And speaking of jobs, here’s a little Reality Check for the blame-Bush and Republicans-are-greedy crowd.

Today’s spelling and math lessons

A public school teacher was arrested today at John F. Kennedy International airport as he attempted to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a compass, a slide-rule and a calculator. At a morning press conference, Attorney General Eric Holder said he believes the man is a member of the notorious Al-Gebra movement. He did not identify the man, who has been charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.

‘Al-Gebra is a problem for us’, the Attorney General said. ‘They derive solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in search of absolute values.’ They use secret code names like ‘X’ and ‘Y’ and refer to themselves as ‘unknowns’, but we have determined that they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country. As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, ‘There are 3 sides to every triangle’.

When asked to comment on the arrest, President Obama said, ‘If God had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, he would have given us more fingers and toes.’ White House aides told reporters they could not recall a more intelligent or profound statement by the President. It is believed that another Nobel Prize will follow.

If this is just the Homeowners Assn deciding it’s time they enforced the regs, they picked the way wrong sign to start with. 89% of Americans support our troops.
