Just how stupid are we?

222 comments:

  1. Really really stupid.

    We blahblah about wind, solar, and corn ethanol while the Chinese and Cubans drill in the back yard.

    And we may prove it again by re-electing Obama.

    We are so stupid we might re-elect the man pushing 'comfort care only' for the over 70 crowd. Since most people hit 70 these days, or at least have a loved one that will, or has, we are proving ourselves to be really really stupid.

  2. Jan 22 (Reuters) - Iraq has invited foreign companies to compete for a $450 million monorail project in the southern holy city of Kerbala, which hosts millions of Shi'ite pilgrims each year.

    The rail line is among many road, railway, port and power projects needed to update decaying infrastructure in Iraq after years of war, economic sanctions and underinvestment.

    Taif Abdul-Hussein, head of the Kerbala investment commission, said on Sunday the 18-km monorail would be built from a northern entrance to the city to the main Shi'ite shrines in the central area and then towards the northeastern city entrance.

    Kerbala, 80 km (50 miles) southwest of Baghdad, hosts the shrines of two Shi'ite imams and is the site of several major religious rites.

    "The project has an economic advantage and will solve the (problem of moving) throngs of people during religious events," Abdul-Hussein told Reuters.

    The train would be capable of speeds up to 100 km per hour and the line would have a station every 900-1000 metres, Abdul-Hussein said.

    Iraqi officials have ambitious plans for rail lines, including one for a multibillion-dollar Baghdad metro. None has yet been built as the government struggles to provide basics like electricity and water.

    In June 2010, the southern city of Najaf awarded TransGlobim International, a privately-owned Canadian consortium, a $600 million contract to build the country's first monorail.

    In January 2011, France's Alstom signed a memorandum of understanding to build metro line above Baghdad's streets. (Reporting by Aseel Kami; editing by Jim Loney and Hans-Juergen Peters)

    ABOARD THE USS ENTERPRISE (AP) — Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says the U.S. is committed to maintaining a fleet of 11 aircraft carriers despite budget pressures, in part to project sea power against Iran the Middle East.

    Panetta also has told about 1,700 sailors on the USS Enterprise that the ship is heading to the Persian Gulf region and will steam through the Strait of Hormuz in a direct message to Iran.

  5. I am sure Rufus has been on this:

    BUENOS AIRES — Off the coast of Rio de Janeiro — below a mile of water and two miles of shifting rock, sand and salt — is an ultradeep sea of oil that could turn Brazil into the world’s fourth-largest oil producer, behind Russia, Saudi Arabia and the United States.

    The country’s state-controlled oil company, Petrobras, expects to pump 4.9 million barrels a day from the country’s oil fields by 2020, with 40 percent of that coming from the seabed. One and a half million barrels will be bound for export markets.

  6. While "o" calls for a different set of Standards, for Mr Adler than that used for other, unhyphentated, Americans.

    The "Standard", other are charged with attempted assassination of the President, when they shoot at the White House. Even when the President is not around the building, but is in Hawaii.

    A man who shot an assault rifle at the White House is one of only a handful of people ever accused of trying to assassinate the president, and if the past is any guide he could spend many years in prison or a mental hospital if convicted.

    The Atlanta paper ran an unmistakeable threat on the life of the President, and distributed it through the US mail.

    That is a crime worthy of five years, hard time, in the Federal pen.

    Mr Adler should not be "on the street" but incarcerated, awaiting trial.

    He is a threat to society, the common good, and is deserving prosecution for his crime.

    Proof positive of the danger hyphenated Americans pose to our society and political culture.

    Well, his rhetoric was stirring, even if his past personal behaviors are typical DC.

    Gulf comeback bodes well for oil field services


    By Simone Sebastian
    Published 10:56 p.m., Friday, January 20, 2012


    The resurgence of deep-water drilling in the Gulf of Mexico has the region on track to return to normal by year's end, boosting profits for oil field services companies, analysts say.

    The Gulf comeback improved year-end financial results for Schlumberger, the world's largest provider of oil field services and equipment. The company reported a 36 percent increase in its fourth-quarter profit Friday.

    "We are quite optimistic on the outlook for the Gulf of Mexico," Schlumberger CEO Paal Kibsgaard said during a conference call with analysts. "We should be at pre-Macondo levels for deep-water drilling rigs by the latter part of 2012."

    After a catastrophic rig explosion and oil spill at BP's Macondo well in 2010, the federal government imposed a six-month federal moratorium on deep-water drilling in the Gulf, forcing some offshore rigs out of the area.

    There were 45 rigs stationed in the Gulf this week, compared with 27 during the same week in 2011, according to the Baker Hughes rotary rig count.

    Kibsgaard said he expects a new rig to enter the region each month in 2012.

  16. That happens, anoni, when there are major blow out disasters that effect entire regions.

    A reassessment of safety requirements were required and implemented.

    Though there are still those that object to deep water drilling

    There was one response sent to BOEM in a different form: a lawsuit filed last month on behalf of four national conservation groups.

    “They’re now approving drilling in the Gulf on the premise that it has no potential for significant environmental impact and we just think that is not correct,” said Catherine Wannamaker with the Southern Environmental Law Center in Atlanta which is representing the conservation groups.

    According to the law suit, BOEM is using in its environmental impact statement a “risk model” that was formulated before the Deepwater Horizon spill. Therefore, the groups allege that containment and recovery measures required under government regulations would prove inadequate if another catastrophic spill were to occur.

    They also fault the drilling industry’s $1 billion “rapid response” equipment that was required under the new regulations and is now standing by to be floated out to stop and contain a blowout.

    “I think we’re relying on very untested and unproven methods that wouldn’t capture even a fraction of what could be a very large spill,” Wannamaker told StateImpact Texas.

    The BOEM said it couldn’t respond since the legal action was on-going.

    But analysts say that as the distribution of power in the new order takes shape, there is potential for conflict between the two forces.


    ... said Ezzeldine Choukri Fishere, a political analyst.

    “Or you could say the matter has been resolved and the people will rule through parliament, but this is not yet clear in the minds of both the military and the Brotherhood.

    “Will the Islamists continue to act as if they are a banned organisation that could be the target of a blow [from the military] at any moment?

    Does the council understand the [change after the election] or does it think it is tricking the people and trying to contain them.?”

    DRILLING OF Otto Energy Ltd. and partner BHP Billiton Ltd. in Southwest Palawan may be delayed as its drilling rig failed to pass tests, the companies said in a statement yesterday.

    “BHP Billiton has issued a termination notice for the Transocean Deepwater Expedition rig due to the rig not passing key acceptance tests. Otto Energy advises that at this point the date for commencement of drilling of the Cinco-1 well is yet to be confirmed,” Otto Energy said in its statement.

  21. When compared to the eight years that the US military has been "studying" the Charleston Bay project, five years under Bush and three with Obama, as Newt reported, the Federals certainly moved quickly in reopening the Gulf of Mexico to deep water drilling.

    A marked improvement in performance.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Perhaps because the deep water drilling program was not left to the Pentagon, to be approved and implemented.

    But to civilians.

    Or, perhaps, because there was no residual effect from the Bush Administration to hamper Team Obama from moving quickly forward?

He soared at the Charleston CNN debate by brazenly proclaiming himself the victim of “the elite media protecting Barack Obama” (the same Obama who told Time he was victimized by the press). Newt’s gambit was a calculated way of deflecting attention from a charge by his second wife, Marianne, that the family values he preaches are hypocritical platitudes, given his cheating ways with two wives he divorced when they were ill.

  75. a cut and paste from Ms T's "book"

    In Jewish legends, Lilith was Adam's first wife, created from the same soil at the same time as Adam, rather than from his rib like Eve, his second wife. Lilith left her husband when she refused to accept the missionary position that Adam insisted on doing, since it left the man on top. Cursed by God, Lilith became a she-demon who roamed the night looking for the souls of newborn infants to steal, but the prophet Isaiah foresaw that she would find rest in the Messianic Age.

    I suppose you should change the Wikipedia article then:

    In Jewish folklore, from the 8th–10th centuries Alphabet of Ben Sira onwards, Lilith becomes Adam's first wife, who was created at the same time and from the same earth as Adam. This contrasts with Eve, who was created from one of Adam's ribs.

    From a courtroom in Manhattan, not far from the epicenter of the nation’s financial crisis, a longtime federal judge is becoming a hero to many and a nightmare to some for demanding greater accountability in cases of alleged Wall Street fraud.

    Jed S. Rakoff is driving regulators nuts by refusing to rubber-stamp the kind of deals that have long defined Securities and Exchange Commission justice — boilerplate settlements in which companies use shareholders’ money to pay fines while they neither admit nor deny doing anything wrong. The latest example called for Citigroup to pay $285 million for alleged misconduct during the mortgage meltdown...


    Second, Rakoff isn’t just calling for Wall Street to be held accountable. He’s also insisting that the government be held accountable when it uses its power to make accusations and exact penalties. Law enforcement, he argues, should be more than a government shakedown.

    “An application of judicial power that does not rest on facts is worse than mindless, it is inherently dangerous,” he wrote. “If its deployment does not rest on facts — cold, hard, solid facts, established either by admissions or by trials — it serves no lawful or moral purpose and is simply an engine of oppression.”...

The Obama administration sued Arizona for requiring law enforcement officers to check immigration statuses on detained suspects and succeeded in blocking implementation of the Arizona legislature’s new law. Attorney General Eric Holder argued that the federal government has the sole prerogative in determining how federal law gets enforced, or apparently whether it gets enforced at all, and that the state of Arizona needed to butt out. Now Arizona might just focus on state law to ensnare some of Holder’s associates — and perhaps even Holder himself — for violating state gun regulations in their zeal to paint gun dealers as amoral mercenaries profiting by arming the Mexican drug cartels.

    ATLANTA (AP) -

    A judge has ordered President Barack Obama to appear in court in Atlanta for a hearing on a complaint that says Obama isn't a natural-born citizen and can't be president.

    It's one of many such lawsuits that have been filed across the country, so far without success. A Georgia resident made the complaint, which is intended to keep Obama's name off the state's
    ballot in the March presidential primary.

    An Obama campaign aide says any attempt to involve the president personally will fail and such complaints around the country have no merit.

    The hearing is set for Thursday before an administrative judge. Deputy Chief Judge Michael Malihi on Friday denied a motion by the president's lawyer to quash a subpoena that requires Obama to show up.

  111. I had seen that Lilith story on the tellie, then found this at a site other than wiki.

    The Hebrew Lilith

    When Jewish patriarchy overtook the land, they made Lilith evil in order to stop the people from worshipping her.

    In Kabbalistic tradition, Lilith was made the first wife of Adam. Some sources say that Lilith was Adam's spirit wife. Other sources claim that Lilith was fashioned from the earth at either the same time as Adam or before Adam. This made Lilith Adam's equal.

    As Adam's equal, Lilith refused to lie on her back while Adam took the dominant position in sex (missionary style). Lilith believed that they should make love as equals (the beast with two backs). Adam was adamantly against this, wanting his wife to be submissive, and Lilith left the Garden of Eden.

    God then supposedly gave Adam Eve, a docile woman of the flesh.

    Eventually, Lilith was portrayed as the foe of Eve. It was Lilith in serpent form who seduced Eve to eat the fruit of knowledge. No doubt the first wife wanted the second wife to see what a jerk Adam was and that Lilith also wanted Eve to open her eyes and come into the fulness of herself, her womanhood.

    When both Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden, Adam endured a period of celibacy as penance. During this time, Lilith was said to have caused nocturnal emissions from Adam (night hag). She collected his semen and impreganted herself with it, giving birth to demons.

    These children of Lilith were called Lilin or Lilim, "night-demons."

    The goddess who once protected mothers and infants was now portrayed as a demoness who caused abortions and murdered infants in their sleep. The Jewish people believed that when a baby laughed or smiled in its sleep, it was being entertained by Lilith, and the parents would quickly bop the infant on the nose to distract the infant from the goddess. It was also believed that she came to children in the form of an owl and drank their blood.

    Despite the Jewish attempts to erradicate this ancient goddess, she can still be found in her truer, albeit symbolic, form in their literature:

    "During a protracted and dangerous confinement take earth from the crossroads, write upon it the five first verses of this Psalm, and lay it upon the abdomen of the parturient; allow it to remain until the birth is accomplished, but no longer. . ."


    Lilith As Goddess
    by Eliza Yetter

  112. Here is another rendition of the myth.


    In Hebrew legend, Lilith is Adam's first wife. She refused to have sex with him because she did not want to be beneath him.

    She left him and was cursed to give birth to one hundred demon children a day who were then killed. She was said to take Her revenge for this curse by stealing or killing human children. Her name means "Screech Owl" or "Night Creature".

    She is mentioned in the Bible: as the Hebrew God, Yahweh, threatens the destruction of Edom (a land located to the south and east of the Dead Sea) He describes what will happen after it is laid waste: "...The night creature shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest" (Book of Isaiah, chapter 34, verse 14). Like in the Inanna legend, Lilith's presence symbolizes a dark time of fear or desolation.

    Lilith was also believed in Jewish folklore to be a succubus, a sexual vampire or demon who came to men at night and caused wet dreams. The Queen of Sheba, portrayed in some legends as a seductive temptress or sorceress, is associated with Lilith in Jewish tradition.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Yet another version, nay, interpretation, of the Lilith myth.


    The earliest representations of Lilith seem to be as a great winged Bird Goddess, a wind spirit, or one associated with the Sumerian, Ninlil, Goddess of the Grain, and wife to Enlil. As the “hand of Inanna”, Lilith was notorious for bringing men from the street and fields of war to Inanna’s temple for holy sexual rites, in which the intention was to civilize the people. The sacred sexual customs were, in fact, considered the greatest gift of Inanna.

    As Adam’s first wife, however, Lilith really got into trouble with the patriarchy. She had the audacity to want to be treated as Adam’s equal.

    According to Hebrew mythology, the Babylonian Talmud, the Zohar, and the Alphabet of Ben Sira, Lilith refused to lie below Adam, and thus set the archetypal example for later feminists.


    God allegedly threatened her by decreeing if she did not submit to Adam, that “one hundred of her children would die every day.” Lilith chose exile.

    Which really got Adam’s goat! Despite being ostensibly happy about having Lilith out of his life (and later blessed with a subservient, if not occasionally misguided Eve), Adam apparently never gave up resenting Lilith for having chosen exile to being with him.

    Gingrich's success here in South Carolina shows more than just a skepticism toward establishment Republicanism. It also shows a hunger for real substance in the campaign, for a candidate who will talk to voters and give them more than phrases like "I believe in America."

  116. The Lilith Myth

    The Hebrew Myths

    Presented here is a chapter discussing Lilith, taken from
    Hebrew Myths: The Book of Genesis
    by Robert Graves and Raphael Patai (New York: Doubleday, 1964), pp 65-69. Graves and Patai have collected traditional Hebrew myths that amplify (and sometimes radically alter) stories found in the Book of Genesis.

    This chapter, titled "Adam's Helpmeets", deals in part with the Lilith myth. Each section of the chapter excerpted here recounts a "story" collected from non-biblical sources, frequently the Talmud -- sources are footnoted. The footnotes are followed by notes of author commentary. Hebrew Myths is recently back in print in a new hardcover edition -- Buy the Book. (A much more extensive discussion of Lilith is found in the The Hebrew Goddess, also by Rapael Patai. The Hebrew Goddess is in print and is listed next....)

  118. According to midrashic literature, Adam's first wife was not Eve but a woman named Lilith, who was created in the first Genesis account. Only when Lilith rebelled and abandoned Adam did God create Eve, in the second account, as a replacement. In an important 13th century Kabbalah text, the Sefer ha-Zohar ("The Book of Splendour") written by the Spaniard Moses de Leon (c. 1240-1305), it is explained that:

    At the same time Jehovah created Adam, he created a woman, Lilith, who like Adam was taken from the earth. She was given to Adam as his wife. But there was a dispute between them about a matter that when it came before the judges had to be discussed behind closed doors. She spoke the unspeakable name of Jehovah and vanished.

    It was pre-dawn, and in the gloomy light that was beginning to gather, Robyn could take a better look at Lilith. The girl was three years younger than herself, but there was an aged look in her hollow eyes, as though she had already lived four lifetimes, and it haunted Robyn. A kind of Darwinian process in the camps had produced a girl who was able to outwit, bribe, or intimidate anyone to get what she needed to survive.

    Robyn knew nothing of this yet, but somehow she saw the results right on Lilith's surface, and suddenly, more than anything in the world, she wanted the girl on her team.

    "Do you live here, at the lighthouse?" Robyn asked her.

    Lilith nodded. Robyn didn't know anything else about her, other than her name. The work camps had emaciated her body, and when she returned home to the Isle of Wight and was fed by her father, the weight came back in the form of strong, wiry muscles. She was eighteen but looked twice that. Robyn assumed she was married, and asked, "Is your husband here?"

    "My father is here," she said. "He operates the lighthouse and runs a weather outstation."

    "I should like to meet him," Robyn said.

    Lilith spat at the ground. "He has sold his life to the Goy and betrayed the destiny of my nation to rule Palestine."

    "The Goy? Goyim. You're Jewish!"

    Lilith nodded. "I am a member of a people whose very right to exist is always being questioned."

    "And when you say your nation, I presume you are not speaking of England."

    "My father rendered a service to the Crown that went far beyond the sacrifices that any other Britons were asked to make. No doubt you have heard of the cross-Channel invasion of France. I believe you American's refer to it by 'D-Day'. My father provided the weather forecast that made it possible. But beyond that, he was used by the government to help deceive Hitler as to exactly where the invasion was going to take place. A British admiral came here and told my father we were going to land at Calais on June the 20th, 1944, and not at Normandy on June the 6th. He was told this knowing there was a strong possibility that a team of Nazis could storm the lighthouse from a submarine and force my father to talk."

    "The cynicism of such a thing is breathtaking," Robyn said.

    They planted false information on my father," Lilith continued, " and the Nazis did indeed arrive, and not only did my father talk, but he was kept silent about his talking by the simple device of taking myself and my moth-er to occupied Europe as insurance. We ended up in camps, and I watched my mother die in a most horrible way."

    And Lilith showed Robyn the six numbers tattooed to her arm by the SS at Ohrdruf. Robyn gasped, knowing that Lilith had come through such suffering and human degradation and evil that she could never begin to understand the mere periphery of it, let alone sympathize with the core of the girl's ordeal and her memories of it.

    "So you see, the Crown owes a very large marker to my father, but he will not cash it in to obtain a thing, a concession of such little import it could not possibly disconcert the government in the smallest way. The Foreign Secretary refuses to allow Jews to immigrate to the British Mandate in Palestine. Not even Jews who are already British subjects."

    "Why not, Lilith?"

    "Oil."

    One word, but it explained everything. The Middle-East was awash in petroleum, but if the Arabs could not be assured that the Jews would never have an independent state there, they would attack the wells owned and operated by the British. So the Balfour Declaration and the Churchill White Paper were torn up for the worthless pieces of paper they always were, and all bets were off in the Holy Land.

    Hope him in contempt, and bang his gavel I guess.

    Would he have to give a judgement in favor of Mrs. Taitz? Would he have to give a judgement at all? Or are they just asking for some answers to some questions?

  141. Is Ruf's favorite candidate in jeopardy of deep jail do-do?

    “Make no mistake about it. This is the beginning of Watergate Two or ObamaForgeryGate. I believe this is the second time in the U.S. history a sitting president is ordered to comply with a subpoena, and produce documents, which might eventually bring criminal charges to the president and a number of high-ranking individuals,” Taitz said.

  146. “What a joke. He claims to be too busy performing the duties of the president of the United States. How many days of vacation has he taken? How many rounds of golf? If he is too busy to provide the documents that provide the basis for meeting the requirements of the office, then perhaps he better sit out the next four years,” said one.

    Wrote another, “The election of President Obama by the presidential electors, confirmed by Congress, makes the documents and testimony sought by plaintiff irrelevant. … This is complete utter nonsense!”

    In fact, a presidential elector in California brought a lawsuit challenging Obama’s eligibility at the time of the 2008 election and was told the dispute was not yet ripe because the inauguration hadn’t taken place. The courts later ruled that the elector lost his “standing” to bring the lawsuit after the inauguration.

    Irion said his argument is that the Founders clearly considered a “natural born citizen,” as the Constitution requires of a president and no one else, to be the offspring of two citizen parents. Since Obama himself has written in his books that his father, Barack Obama Sr. was a Kenyan, and thus subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom, Irion argues that Obama is disqualified under any circumstances based on his own testimony.


    Irion is on the right track. That is Donofrio's argument.

    And some other bob stepped in and some other Felys.

    Here's what I think -- Gingrich is either going to take Florida or it's going to be so close as to be basically called a tie. Which is for him like a win, campaigning without money.

    What's next? Nevada I think. It's got some Mormons. But then, I know, it's got a lot of folks who don't like Mormons. Either Gingrich, or a tie.

    Michigan is soon thereafter. You'd think it might be Romney country....but.....

    I think it might well go all the way to the convention. It should be interesting at least.

    And, I'm getting a big smile from thinking about that judge in Georgia. Though I imagine it will get appealed out of existence, like all the others. But then....

    You must be pulling our collective leg saying you are a Christian, as well as a lesbian. Because Christians we are told have settled the arguments in their heart.

    Which doesn't mean you don't have the duty to defend yourself against, say, the moslems, of course.

  173. U.S. aircraft carrier enters Gulf without incident

    The Republican Party formally renounces a two-state solution

    Bill Maher & Ann Coulter announce the birth of their male child, Damien.

    Ann Coulter: "Now you have to get people who voted for Obama and having a candidate who goes out and calls Obama a ‘Kenyan colonialist,’ that is not what you need. And at the same time, with Newt Gingrich you get the name calling for the president — very popular with the tea party crowd in South Carolina, not so popular with independents. He won’t put a fence on the border and wants amnesty for illegals. He took $1.6 million from Freddie Mac. But you know, he attacked Paul Ryan’s plan on Social Security. So with Newt Gingrich, you throw out the baby and keep the bath water... I think South Carolina is going back to their Democratic roots."

  178. While the roots of conservative, anti-elite sentiment are at least partly grounded in substance, the reaction to it is all identity politics. In his victory speech Saturday night, Gingrich -- a millionaire former party leader and corporate lobbyist now living in McLean, Va. -- railed against "Washington elites," to thunderous applause.

    Given his record, it may be implausible that Gingrich can pose as anti-establishment. But the establishment is certainly anti-Newt.

    And for South Carolina's voters, that was an endorsement enough.

    They have a point — no matter what you think of Paul. He believes his ideas and that evidently impresses people used to generations of phony pols.
