    Washington itself is undoubtedly part of the problem -- because politicians are social animals, and lying, it turns out, is very much a social disease. When a rookie politician looks around and sees that his peers are behaving dishonestly, he determines that this behavior is acceptable and will be likely to follow suit. Party affiliation may also play a big role. In a study that my colleagues and I ran at Carnegie Mellon University, we planted a fake participant who looked like either a fellow student (wearing Carnegie Mellon attire) or a student from a rival university (wearing a University of Pittsburgh sweatshirt). We then asked the plant to make clear that he was cheating. When the student was wearing the Carnegie Mellon sweatshirt, his behavior signaled to his peers that it was OK to cheat -- and their cheating increased. But when he was wearing the Pittsburgh sweatshirt, his dishonesty made cheating appear less acceptable, and it thus decreased. This applies to politicians as well: When a senator sees her fellow party members lying or misrepresenting the truth, it becomes the moral standard.

    With all these forces combined, is it any wonder that politicians are deemed the most untrustworthy characters? Still, the question remains: Do politicians cheat more in their professional lives than the rest of us? Given their position of power, the easy justification that fibbing has an altruistic end, and the prevailing norm of dishonest behavior that is so commonplace in the halls of politics, I suspect that the answer is a resounding "yea."

      The US government has determined it is in the national interest to have an educated population. They write laws that demand every child go to school.

      They shouldn't be making money off of citizens that want to get educated. On the other hand, they shouldn't be losing money paying for education after high school. IMO, student loan rates should be set as low as possible but high anough to pay administrative and handling and actuarily sound estimates of bad debt losses.

      With regard to the last, we may be entering an area of 'new normal' there too. You can't take statistics from the past where unemployment was in the 4-5% range and project into the future where the normal may very well be 7%.

      The stats thrown around this morning are meaningless unless you know how they were derived. Was the improved income associated with a degree based on average pay of specific occupations? Was it based on samples of actual individuals? Is it affected by the fact that many today can't get jobs in fields for which they have been trained or that half the kids leaving college can't find full time jobs?

  20. Ohio likes Ryan -

    Rasmussen: Ohio likely voters favorable toward Ryan, 51/39
    POSTED AT 12:01 PM ON AUGUST 14, 2012 BY ED MORRISSEY


    The immediate conventional wisdom from the media in the wake of Mitt Romney’s selection of Paul Ryan as running mate was that Ryan might make Wisconsin more competitive, but would cost Romney in Ohio and Florida. Rasmussen polled likely voters in Ohio for their initial impression of Paul Ryan and his impact on the ticket, and found that Ryan doesn’t do any damage to Romney — and may boost his chances of retaking this key state for the GOP:

    Early reactions to Mitt Romney’s new running mate are modestly positive in Ohio.

    Fifty-one percent (51%) have a favorable opinion of the GOP’s Vice Presidential running mate. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Ohio finds that 39% have an unfavorable view. Those figures include 33% with a Very Favorable opinion and 24% with a Very Unfavorable view. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    Forty percent (40%) say they’re now more likely to vote for Mitt Romney and 32% are less likely to do so. Among unaffiliated voters, 42% are now more likely to vote for Romney, and 18% are less likely.

    However, prior to his introduction by Romney on Saturday, Ryan was relatively unknown. As a result, these numbers could shift significantly in coming weeks.

    That’s a fair warning. The race is on to “define” Paul Ryan, but so far, the Romney team seems to be ahead. After all, only 10% of the respondents in this poll were not familiar enough with Ryan to have an opinion on him, and only 29% were unsure whether this was the right choice for the ticket. Among those most unsure in critical demos didn’t have unfamiliarity to blame for their hesitancy:

    Women: 36% unsure whether Ryan is the right choice, but only 13% were not familiar enough to form an opinion of Ryan
    Seniors: 30% unsure, only 8% unfamiliar
    Democrats: 36% unsure, 8% unfamiliar
    Independents: 35% unsure, 17% unfamiliar
    The favorability of Ryan among these groups is either good or virtually even, except of course for Democrats (15/76), although 19% of those think Ryan was the right choice for Romney. Ryan’s at a -2 among women (47/49), but a +19 among independents, with 50% already having a favorable opinion, and 33% having a “very favorable” opinion of the new #2. Once again, as in Rasmussen’s national poll in July, Ohio seniors give Ryan his most favorable demographic rating other than Republicans, with 54% favorable against only 38% negative, and 36% of seniors rating him “very favorable.”

    How will that impact these demographics? In all but the Democrats, Ryan makes voters more likely to support the ticket. That’s even true with women, albeit narrowly at 35/30, so the initial “women should be frightened of Ryan” hasn’t exactly succeeded yet, at least not in this battleground state. Independents are more likely to support the ticket with Ryan than not by a +24, 42/18, which even outpaces seniors’ +15 at 46/31.

    We still have plenty of time for Democrats to demonize Ryan, but their initial efforts seem to have fallen short. Ryan’s off to a good first impression in Ohio, and the numbers indicate he’s making it harder for Barack Obama in the Buckeye State rather than easier.

      With his selection of Paul Ryan, Romney brings an attractive (by today's political standards) articulate voice to his ticket. It may help him with the conservative base or that part of the (hopefully a shrinking part) American Public that judges a candidate by looks rather than substance. Although having seen a shirtless and buff Joe Biden in The Onion Magazine, I could be wrong.

      However, that is the only advantage Ryan brings. The big disadvantage he brings is the Ryan budget, his signature legislation. And when I say signature legislation, I'm serious. In his 13 years in Congress, Ryan has sponsored 2 other pieces of legislation, one to rename a post office and the other equally as trivial, so trivial I can't even remember it at the moment.

      That leaves the budget, a budget Romney has previously endorsed, a budget that the entire GOP establishment endorsed by voting for it, not once but twice. Unfortunately, it is a disingenuous effort based on lies and evasion similar to GWB's push for his tax cuts and Obama's push for Obamacare.

      It is easy for anyone who is familiar with the numbers in his budget to point out the inconsistancies. For instance, Ryan proposes $4.5 trillion in tax relief while promising to balance the budget through unspecified cuts in 'waste, loopholes, and tax breaks'. He calls for increased military spending at the same time he promises to reduce discretionary spending from the current 12.7% of GDP to around 3.5% of GDP, impressive until you realize military spending alone has never been less than 3% of GDP. Likewise, though Ryan and Romney bemoan the cuts Obama has made in Medicare/Medicaid, the budget includes all of the Obama cuts and then adds more.

      Anyone dealing with reality must realize that the Ryan budget would end up sticking it to the middle class, and that is not even the mention the devasting cuts it puts on the elderly, the poor, the disabled, and the children. The Ryan budget would gut the US government and change Medicare/Medicaid in ways detrimental to recipients while failing to accomplish it's main goals, to balance the budget and reduce the debt.

      As I said before, IMO, the more people get to know about Ryan the less they will like him.

      There is nothing scarier than an ideological geek with power.

      And shoots and arrow.


      WASHINGTON -- He's been in Congress for nearly 13 years, but Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has only seen two of his bills pass into law during that time.

      Ryan, who Mitt Romney has tapped as his running mate, passed a bill into law in July 2000 that renames a post office in his district. Thanks to Ryan, the post office on 1818 Milton Ave. in Janesville, Wis., is now known as "Les Aspin Post Office Building."

      The other time Ryan saw one of his bills become law was in December 2008, with legislation to change the way arrows (as in bows and arrows) are hit with an excise tax. Specifically, his bill amended the Internal Revenue Code to impose a 39-cent tax per arrow shaft, instead of a 12.4 percent tax on the sales price. The bill also "includes points suitable for use with arrows in the 11 percent excise tax on arrow parts and accessories."

  21. Gag,

    Just for you:

    "The hospital giant also adopted a policy meant to address an issue that bedevils hospitals nationwide — reducing costs and overcrowding in its emergency rooms. For years, the hospital emergency room has been used by the uninsured as a de facto doctor’s office — a place for even the most minor of ailments. But emergency care is expensive and has become increasingly burdensome to hospitals in the last decade because of the rising number of uninsured patients.

    HCA decided not to treat patients who came in with nonurgent conditions, like a cold or the flu or even a sprained wrist, unless those patients paid in advance. "

  24. The NYTImes article on HCA is an interesting one - particularly if you are interested in the 'business' aspects of health care. Basically they took a public health care company private with a LBO (Leveraged Buy-out) and then took it public again and made a bunch o money:

    "In 2010, buoyed by robust growth in profit, HCA was able to issue billions of dollars in debt that was used to pay funds overseen by the three buyout firms nearly $1 billion in dividends — each. In the spring of 2011, in one of the most closely watched public offerings since the financial crisis, HCA became a public company once again. Its three buyout owners each sold another $500 million worth of stock, allowing them to recoup all their initial investment.

    Last fall, HCA agreed to buy back the stake held by Bank of America, which had purchased Merrill Lynch in 2009, for $1.5 billion, giving the bank a return of two and a half times its initial investment. And earlier this year, HCA paid out $900 million in dividends, of which $360 million went to K.K.R. and Bain.

    The 40 percent stake in HCA still held by K.K.R. and Bain is worth about $4.8 billion at current levels, giving them a potential profit, with the dividends they have received, of three and a half times their initial investment of $1.2 billion each. "

    Unusual Government Agencies Stockpiling Ammo
    Tom Roberson


    Is the government preparing for civil unrest by amassing stockpiles of ammunition purchased through various government agencies such as the National Weather Service to complement purchases made through the Department of Homeland Security?
    A solicitation appearing on the FedBizOps website asks for delivery of 46,000 rounds of .40 S&W JHP to the National Weather Service in various locations on the East Coast along with a request for 500 paper targets. This follows a previous DHS purchase of 450 million rounds of .40 hollow point ammunition back in March. It should be noted that hollow point ammunition has been "illegal in international warfare since 1899." Apparently, its use is approved against the citizens of one's own country. Get the full story here and here.
    Either the government is preparing for massive civil unrest stemming from a possible economic collapse, or the Obama Administration is preparing its own version of a November surprise in the eventuality that the election doesn't go their way. Hey, they don't call the Obama Administration a bunch of Chicago street thugs for nothing. I'm just saying.

  29. Mr Ryan's grandfather, the one that paid for his upbringing, allowing him to save his Social Security survivor benefits to pay for his college, left Mr Ryan a $9 million estate.

    Gramps was the fellow that built it, on the government's dime. He didn't "do it" without those government dollars flowing to him. He did not build a single bridge "out of pocket".

    ... while Republicans have been clamoring to make this election a false dichotomy between the private sector and the public sector, Paul Ryan — heir to a private fortune made by building public highways — is a gaping pothole in that plan.

    Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani told CNBC’s Larry Kudlow tonight that Vice President Biden may be unfit for office. Here’s the transcript:

    KUDLOW: You know, what did he say? ‘Y’all going to be put back in chains’? That almost has racial overtones, Rudy Giuliani. What’s your take on that?

    GIULIANI: Well, I think if it came from somebody serious maybe we’d get all excited about it. But the — I think the vice president of the United States has become a laugh line on late night television. I mean, he — I’ve never seen a vice president that has made as many mistakes, said as many stupid things. I mean, there’s a real fear if, God forbid, he ever had to be entrusted with the presidency, whether he really has the mental capacity to handle it. I mean, this guy just isn’t bright. He’s never been bright. He isn’t bright. And people think, ‘Well, he just talks a little too much.’ Actually he’s not very smart.

    1. Actually, at one time, Joe suggested Iraq be divided up into three parts. He might have been onto something there.

      Up until the point that he said that I thought he might know what he was talking about on foreign affairs.

  32. Deflating asset bubbles is a long-term positive for China's economy. But with the government focused on growth, falling prices threaten to dent confidence and investment.

    ...

    China's trade surplus and foreign direct investment mean near constant inflows of foreign funds into the economy. In the past, expectations of yuan appreciation meant those funds were rapidly exchanged for yuan.

    Monthly data on banks' purchase of foreign exchange captures those transactions. Purchases of foreign exchange that fall below monthly inflows from trade and investment suggest either hot-money outflows, or a decision by firms to hold their foreign earnings in dollars.

  33. The U.S. Air Force plans a key test of an experimental aircraft designed to fly at six times the speed of sound, or about 3,600 mph (5,800 kph).

    ...

    In its most recent test last year, the Boeing-designed X-51 fell for about four seconds before its booster rocket ignited, but the aircraft failed to separate from the rocket and plunged into the ocean.

  34. "This is a Constitutional battle, and we're going to defend our rights," says Aaron Sandusky, the owner of a medical marijuana dispensary in Upland, California who now faces federal drug trafficking charges even though he was operating within California state law.

    "If I have to go to jail for 20 years defending this, then so be it," says Sandusky.

  35. Some who have already voted for the plan praised Romney’s selection, including Rep. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who is running in a competitive Senate race in senior-heavy Arizona.

    ...

    In a Democratic-leaning Massachusetts district, businessman John Tisei (R) balked at Rep. John Tierney’s (D-Mass.) effort to tie him to the vice presidential pick.

    “I’m going to Washington to do the right thing for the country, and I’m not going to be rubber stamped for anyone or anything,” he said, careful to point out that, in particular, he doesn’t support Ryan’s plan to shift control of Medicaid to the states.

  37. On this day in 1980, workers in Gdansk, Poland, led by Lech Walesa, seized a shipyard and demanded pay raises and the right to form a union. The strike eventually grew into the Solidarity movement, which played a key role in ending communist rule in Poland, and eventually the Soviet Union.

  38. It was all a 'clerical error' -

    Update -

    Due to a clerical error in the federal business vendor process, a solicitation for ammunition and targets for the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement mistakenly identified NOAA's National Weather Service as the requesting office. The error is being fixed and will soon appear correctly in the electronic federal bidding system. The ammunition is standard issue for many law enforcement agencies and it will be used by 63 NOAA enforcement agents in their twice annual target qualifications and training.

  39. Bob,

    Poor Fever, Favor or what ever that French "PF" intro is:

    As soon as I show up, let me know when Rufus and Rat admit that BHO is TAKING 700 Billion from Medicare, and that Ryan/Wyden leaves Medicare UNTOUCHED for everyone over 55 who wants it that way.

    Thats when I'll stop addressing them as LYING PROPAGANDISTS.

    Thanks,

    Doug

    ...fuckin scumbags.

    7. Rufus and Obama say they are calling for any reductions in benefits, just pay doctors less.

      ...as more and and more Doctors are deciding not to take on any more money losing patients.

      ...and others, esp. older ones, just say screw it, I quit.

  41. The race has changed. You can ignore all polling, anywhere, now, except Florida.

    Bammie needs to get his skinny ass out of the corn field, and head for the "cane" field.

    With Wisconsin most likely gone, the Ohio + Nevada stragegy no longer works.

    Now it's the Fl + anything strategy (Nevada, and NH being the most likely chances.)

    1. I'm thinking Ryan is going to play well in Colorado, and Virginia.

      If Romney takes Florida Obama has to have Ohio, Nevada, NH, And Iowa.

      It starts to get dicey.

    2. Romney played the Ryan rollout masterfully. He immediately flew to Florida, and started muddying the water with the Obamacare $700 B vs Ryancare offense.

      At the same time he seems to have caught the Dems wrong-footed, somehow. Their response has been "muddled" to say the least.

      Their problem is, as things settle down he's still left with a platform of "Medicare Vouchers," and a state full of seniors wielding 29 Electoral Votes.

      Then, there's the "Taxes."

      Romney played the Ryan rollout masterfully.

      I suspect it is about as smart as Obama stating that "You didn't do that."

      It's only been a couple days since Ryan was selected and the Dems have been concentrating on the 'sticking it to the elderly' meme. It won't be long until they point out that the $700 billion Romney is talking about with Obama is also pulled out by Ryan in his budget.

    4. If you'll read my comment, again, I didn't say that it was, necessarily, going to work out real great, just that he did a good job with a bad hand.

      Personally, I think they're in for a tough 90 days, starting in a week, or so; but, today, he's ticked up a couple of points.

  42. Another description for "bad hand" is they got nuthin, Ryan's got the truth and the proof.

      Lordy, Doug, try reading up on what is actually in the budget rather than just the GOP talking points.
