“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

"The road to recovery is never straight," Obama said, "and we have to continue to work every single day to get our economy moving again."

US businesses cut 85,000 net jobs in December. Remarkably the unemployment rate was unchanged at 10 percent. How is that possible you ask?

The government answer is understandable if you understand that government is not about truth. Government is concerned about control.

When government does not like the truth, it creates government speak.

Hundreds of thousands of frustrated American workers stopped looking for jobs because there aren't any. If you stop looking for jobs that are not there, therefore you are not really unemployed, merely jobless and that is not the same thing. Problem solved.

  11. The President has found it within himself to say that "We are at war with al-Qaeda."

    Who do they think al-Qaeda is? Do they think the threat comes only from al-Qaeda?

    They still can't bring themselves to say that the threat comes from Islam, the RoP.

  12. Tactic of using an individual as of opposed to a large conspiracy,

    Never fear, sister Janet is near.

  13. As to unemployment and the economy, Obama and this Democrat Congress have spent hundreds of billions on the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act with little effect on the employment numbers.

    At you can see where the money is going. The numbers are staggering, the debt service and taxes will be even more so.

    Fewer jobs lost is better than more jobs lost.

    Jobs gained?
    ...outside the pale.
    Outside DC

  48. At one time, probably 98% of our citizens were farmers, and the average man probably worked 30 to 40 hours just to feed his family.

    Today, 98% of our population are NON-farmers, and the average citizen works 4 hours to feed his family for a week.

    The Same Thing is happening with Manufacturing. For the first time in history there are, now, more people working in Government than are working in "Goods Producing" jobs. Yet, the average home has a couple of TVS, A DVR, a Microwave, a Washer and Dryer, A Huge Refrigerator/Freezer, A couple of cars out front, a couple of cellphones, a computer, hair dryers, toaster ovens, vacuum cleaners, Central Climate Control, on and on.

    What's next?

  50. Iran now seeks money for ww2...

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad expressed continued defiance to the threat of further sanctions on his country on Saturday, saying the Islamic Republic will not be deterred from pursuing its nuclear program.

    "They issued several resolutions and sanctioned Iran," Ahmadinejad said in a speech translated by the AFP news agency. "They think Iranians will fall on their knees over these things but they are mistaken."

    "We are not interested in conflicts [but they] are continually demanding things," he said. "They should not think they can put up obstacles in Iranians' way ... the government will whole-heartedly defend Iran's rights and will not back down one iota."

    Meanwhile, in an announcement seemingly in line with his confrontational attitude towards Western nations, the hardline president has ordered the formation of a team to study the damages the country suffered from the 1941 Allied invasion in order to demand compensation.

    Ahmadinejad said Iran suffered immensely after it was invaded by Britain and the Soviet Union during World War II despite its declared neutrality and was never compensated.

    "A team has been assigned to calculate all the damages [inflicted on Iran] in the Second World War. This will be an invoice they [Allies powers] must pay to the Iranian nation," he said in remarks broadcast live on state television Saturday

  52. Against your better advice, al-Doug, and it is better advice, I have told my new lady lawyer, and my engineer, to take my program through the city council.

    I won't make a dime out of this, as the market just isn't there, right now, but I will have given my money to my lady lawyer, and my engineer, and not to Obama.

    How I'll get back to Ohio, I don't know.

    I'd like to visit Pennslyvania, and see where Ben Franklin grew up.

    But this might be pushing it.

  53. T, you seem to have a hard time with me. I don't consider what I wrote, "gloomy," in the least.

    I'm saying that we are an amazing "success" story. We are, however, slowly entering a "new" paradigm. One that only science fiction writers could have imagined only a few decades ago.

  54. I agree with Rufus on that.

    We don't even conceive how good we've got it.

    Though those unemployment numbers are maddening.

  55. At present, it's more economical to have an Asian woman assemble a DVR, and ship it to the U.S. than manufacture it here. But, it won't always be so.

    In fifteen, or twenty years that delicate work will be done by a roboticized assembly line in Boise.

    The world, it be a'changin, sweetheart.

  56. Radical Islam's obsession with covering women's hair is a new phenomenon. In 1981, Abol-Hassan Banisadr, the first president of the Islamic Republic, announced that scientific research had shown that women's hair emits rays that drive men insane with lust. To protect the public, the new regime passed legislation in 1982 making the new form of hijab mandatory for all females above six years of age, regardless of religious faith. Violating the hijab code is punishable by one hundred lashes of the cane and six months imprisonment. By the mid-1980s, a form of hijab never seen in Islam before the 1970s had become standard headgear for millions of Muslim women all over the world, including Europe and North America. Many younger women, especially Western converts, were duped into believing that the neo-hijab is an essential part of the Islamic faith.
    Muslim women anywhere in the world could easily see the fraudulent nature of the neo-Islamist hijab by going through their family albums: they will not find a single picture of a female ancestor who wore the cursed headgear now imposed upon them as an absolute "must" of Islam. This fake Islamic hijab is thus nothing but a political prop, a weapon of visual terrorism; it is a symbol of a totalitarian ideology inspired more by Nazism and Communism than by Islam, and is designed to promote gender apartheid. And yet this prop of visual terror was presented by Khomeinist ideologues as a fundamental value—as "a pillar of Islamic existence," and as "our most effective weapon against the enemies of Islam," according to Rafsanjani. One well-known female Khomeinist wrote, "The superpowers know that hijab is the foundation of Islamic government and that to conquer the Persian Gulf and plunder its oil resources, they must first eliminate hijab."

    To counter the Islamist claim that the hijab blocks the dangerous, lust-provoking rays emanating from a woman's hair, some women have proposed other forms of hijab. One Iranian designer came out with a wig made of horsehair, thus ensuring that a woman's own hair remains hidden while she still "looks like a normal human being." Some Iranian actresses suggested they be allowed to appear in plays and films wearing wigs made of animal hair. The French cosmetics firm L'Oreal tried to market a transparent hijab that would show a woman's hair but keep its "dangerous rays" locked in. The Khomeinists would have none of it; they wanted women to be seen in public in a state of submission.

  62. I hate to enter this fray but I will.

    I occasionaly drift through blogger looking at different blogs. A couple of years ago if I am correct, I came across a social blog with mostly women. I posted a comment and a link to the elephant.

    We received a return comment and I returned to the site on a couple of occasions. The site was run by a young woman and several if not all the others were woman of similar age.

    They freely exchanged and posted pictures of everyday events. I do not recall the site and if I could, I would not post the link.

    I am convinced that MLD is the same site master. She used a different screen name on her site and no one on her site seemed concerned about pretending to be anything except who they really were.

    She is free to comment with a yes or no.

    Should her response be yes, I can assure you she is a fine looking trim young woman who by all accounts enjoys her life, and has a pretty fair sense of humor.

  63. "Terror case's drain on resources draws outrage

    3 public defenders on legal team a financial strain, critics say

    Detroit-- When Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was arraigned Friday on charges he tried to blow up a Northwest Airlines flight on Christmas Day, he had not one, but three, taxpayer-funded attorneys at his side."

    [Note: These aren't struggling attorneys straight out of law school. They are some of the best in the Detroit area.]

    "The hearing came less than a month after a daylong symposium was held at Wayne State University to address what's been described as a "crisis" in the lack of public resources for indigent criminal defendants in Michigan and across the nation.

    Chief Federal Defender Miriam Siefer said for the first time Friday she expects her office to keep the Abdulmutallab case and that there has been no talk by him or his family about hiring private attorneys..."

    And if Melody has pulled a fast one on me, I ain't got no cock left, either.

    But I don't think that's the case, for many reasons.

    That's all I'm going to say.

    I think Deuce has it right. And, there will be no more poems, though I know you'd all pay big money for them.

    That's why I'm starving here.

    And, I do like her alot, least if she's female.
