Jindal: Four. More. Years

Move over NY-19, Jindal sweeps governor race. If the Dems screw up bad enough, the people of a state will kick them out. The Democratic party in LA is dead.

Rage On—and on and on…

“On a wider political level, there is a growing realization that today’s brand of liberalism is really a form of slow societal suicide. We see red states recovering from recession; blue states are still broke.”

In the case of Red-Red -California, going ahead with cap and trade, racing faster toward the bottom.

…cohorts of young, flat-broke, indebted, and politically prepped but poorly schooled students wondering where is the good life and why a Wall Street fixer, or computer nerd, or company man civil engineer makes so much more than they, the anointed, do.

So they rage on — and on and on…”

Joke:

Q- What’s the difference between zombies and Occupy protesters?

A- Zombies have lives to return to after the party.

The Organizers vs. the Organized in Zuccotti ParkIt began, as it so often does, with a drum circle.

All occupiers are equal — but some occupiers are more equal than others.

Read this, it’s hilarious. New York Magazine’s piece on the young “Occupiers” facing efforts to make them clean up after themselves.

Netflix stock plummets after report shows 800,000 quit

They lost me ten years ago when I realized my account was being “throttled” and I never went back. The people who think that all the subscribers that quit will rejoin should realize that after trust is lost, people find other ways to get what they want.

Rhode Island is looking more and more like Greece, and not in a good way.

“But there is financial math as well as political math and in any war with financial arithmetic, the money numbers win.  If there isn’t any money, the checks won’t clear.  Ultimately, you will have to fire existing workers, stop paying pensions or a mix of both. That is where Rhode Island is now: its economy can’t generate the revenue to support its existing governance system and to pay its pension obligations.”

Most corrupt state in the Northeast, I stopped working in RI after they tried to get me to pay them for the right to work in their state. Now, I’m grinning from ear to ear.

The Red State in Your Future

A Wall Street Journal article points out that about $200 billion of the president’s misnamed “jobs bill” was little more than a state bailout for teachers and construction workers.

But Republicans are refusing to be complicit in state fiscal irresponsibility.  Call it tough love, but blue states will sink or swim on their own.

Many fed-up citizens in those blue states are leaving.  But others have decided that if anyone is going to leave, it’s those big-spending politicians who brought on the fiscal disaster.  It’s a lesson blue-state politicians better learn: It’s better to be red than dead.

If it can happen in Louisanna it can happen in any blue state. After all, all the states in the Union have whats needed, trees or lampposts, rope and many willing haul the line.
