“…so now surrender to them when they shriek that immorality consists of pronouncing moral judgement. When they yell that it is selfish to be certain that you are right, you hasten to assure them that you’re certain of nothing. When they shout that it’s immoral to stand on your convictions, you assure them them that you have no convictions whatever. When the thugs of Europe’s People’s States snarl that you are guilty of intolerance, because you don’t treat your desire to live and their desire to kill you as a difference of opinion–you cringe and hasten to assure them that you are not intolerant of any horror. When some barefoot bum in some pesthole of Asia yells at you: How dare you be rich–you apologize and beg him to be patient and promise him you’ll give it all away.”

I agree with him, but I hope ‘the architect’ chokes on his whiteboard!
- Do you believe in polls, or people? (thebusypost.wordpress.com)
Looking over several polls, both state and national, I am struck by something odd. These polls show Obama with 5, 7, 9, even 10 point leads in some swing states. Yet these polls show both candidates winning about the majorities of their party, and they also show Romney winning independents. Does this not strike you as odd? Independents usually swing the election don’t they? Gateway Pundit has video of Karl Rove discussing this on O’Reilly’s show Now, I am not the biggest fan of Rove, but he knows about polls.
I would also point out that Dick Morris has Romney winning by 4-5 points if the election were held now. Do not buy these polls folks!
Sarah Palin is somewhere, and I bet she’s gloating. What we were told was crazy, uneducated, right wing rhetoric, appears to be occurring before our eyes; it’s just not called a death panel. It’s called “rationing”. Sounds great huh?
New York Times, Saturday. The Op-Ed piece by Steven Rattner, click below:
Real Inflation has to be around 2-3%; GDP isn’t even keeping up.
- Q2 GDP Slashed To 1.3% (thebusypost.wordpress.com)
The third reading on Q2 GDP just came out and the report was ugly.
“The “third” estimate of the second-quarter percent change in real GDP is 0.4 percentage point, or $16.0 billion, less than the “second” estimate issued last month, primarily reflecting downward revisions to private inventory investment, to personal consumption expenditures, and to exports,” wrote the .
The personal consumption component was revised down to 1.5 percent. Economists were expecting it to be unchanged at 1.7 percent.
Real gross domestic product – the output of goods and services produced by labor and property located in the United States – increased at…

I’m a huge NFL fan, but suprisingly I still don’t care who refs the games. WHO-DEY!
The NFL and National Football League Referees Association, have finally reached an agreement, which probably means the end of lingerie-league rejects making boneheaded calls in stadium end zones.
Around midnight Thursday morning, after days of long and heated negotiations, word reached reporters that NFL-trained referees will be back on the field in time for Thursday night’s game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns.
Commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL agreed to hike referees’ annual compensation from $149,000 to $173,000. The new package will also reportedly include better benefits and 401(k) plans.
Great! Now highly paid professionals can screw up calls like only highly trained professionals can!
Why aren’t there more lawsuits?

The Obama Justice Department appealed a court ruling and will push forward in its quest to punish a Catholic family in Colorado for refusing to comply with its anti-Catholic HHS mandate.
A judge’s order will not stop the Obama administration from pressing forward in its quest to punish a Catholic family’s business for refusing to comply with the HHS mandate.
Hercules Industries, an HVAC business in Denver, won an injunction against the controversial provision requiring employers to cover contraceptives, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs in its health care plans on July 27.
On Tuesday, the Justice Department appealed the…

- Durable Goods Orders At 3 1/2 Year Low (thebusypost.wordpress.com)
New orders for long-lasting U.S. manufactured goods in August fell by the most in 3-1/2 years, pointing to a sharp slowdown in factory activity even as a gauge of planned business spending rebounded.
The Commerce Department said on Thursday durable goods orders dived 13.2 percent, the largest drop since January 2009, when the economy was in the throes of a recession. Orders for July were revised down to show a 3.3 percent increase instead of the previously reported 4.1 percent gain.
Economists polled by Reuters had expected orders for durable goods – items from toasters to aircraft that are meant to last at least three years – to fall 5 percent.
Last month, the drop in orders reflected weak aircraft and automobiles demand. Boeing received only one aircraft order in August, down from 260 in July, according to information posted on the plane maker’s website.
Transportation equipment tumbled 34.9 percent…

MJ-You know I’m a believer. He played with fire and got burnt!
Keep singing God bless America as we cause terror all around the planet. I kept telling people this is what happened. ‘Conservatives’ don’t want to hear that this SHAM of a country is NOT the America it is supposed to be. “Conservatives” also want to just say Muslim “Jihad!” Well, the LEFT IS the damned Jihad and nobody will call this atrocity out on the MSM, not even FAUX news… The ambassador played with fire.
The ambassador got BURNED.

Details of Barack Obama’s headlining of Chicago-DSA townhall event. Ironic he discussed jobs, eh?
In 1996, then State Senate Candidate Barack Obama participated in a Chicago Democratic Socialists of America Town Hall Meeting.
Where was all of this information in 2008? I blame one man for none of this coming out then, John McCain.
New Ground 45 – Chicago Democratic Socialists of America
By Bob Roman
Over three hundred people attended the first of two Town Meetings on Economic Insecurity on February 25 in Ida Noyes Hall at the University of Chicago. Entitled “Employment and Survival in Urban America”, the meeting was sponsored by the UofC DSA Youth Section, Chicago DSA and University Democrats. The panelists were Toni Preckwinkle, Alderman of Chicago’s 4th Ward; Barack Obama, candidate for the 13th Illinois Senate District…..
Barack Obama observed that Martin Luther King’s March on Washington in the 1960s wasn’t simply about civil rights but demanded jobs as well. Now the issue is again coming to the front, but he wished the issue was on the Democratic agenda not just on Buchanan’s.
One of the themes that has emerged in Barack Obama’s campaign is “what does it take to create productive communities”, not just consumptive communities. It is an issue that joins some of the best instincts of the conservatives with the better instincts of the left. He felt the state government has three constructive roles to play.
The first is “human capital development”. By this he meant public education, welfare reform, and a “workforce preparation strategy”. Public education requires equality in funding. It’s not that money is the only solution to public education’s problems but it’s a start toward a solution. The current proposals for welfare reform are intended to eliminate welfare but it’s also true that the status quo is not tenable. A true welfare system would provide for medical care, child care and job training. While Barack Obama did not use this term, it sounded very much like the “social wage” approach used by many social democratic labor parties. By “workforce preparation strategy”, Barack Obama simply meant a coordinated, purposeful program of job training instead of the ad hoc, fragmented approach used by the State of Illinois today.
The state government can also play a role in redistribution, the allocation of wages and jobs. As Barack Obama noted, when someone gets paid $10 million to eliminate 4,000 jobs, the voters in his district know this is an issue of power not economics. The government can use as tools labor law reform, public works and contracts.
Finally, Illinois needs an industrial strategy. How do we create more jobs for everyone? Illinois has no strategy for encouraging high wage, high productivity jobs.
