The future is now. And the limousine left can't wait!
http://www.sfchronicle.com/aboutsfgate/article/Why-universal-basic-income-is-gaining-support-11290211.php?cmpid=email-premium

The idea of a universal basic income — monthly cash payments from the government to every individual, working or not, with no strings attached — is gaining traction, thanks in part to endorsements from Silicon Valley celebs...

Sure, and we'll pay for it by confiscating silicons valley's underserved wealth. Insert a universal maximum income of $250k with universal maximum wealth of $10 million. They don't need more than that.

Politics / Liberal Icon Bob Woodward: "Bush didn't lie"
« on: May 27, 2015, 04:45:39 PM »
Not that it matters to the ignorant left, but even Bob Woodward has now admitted what has always been known: President George W Bush didn't lie, nor did he even emphasize Iraq's WMD's as a reason to liberate Iraq.

http://www.usnews.com/opinion/blogs/peter-roff/2015/05/26/bob-woodward-bush-didnt-lie-to-start-iraq-war

Anyone who wants to know the truth just need read the 2003 State of the Union. Bush spelled out all of the reasons why liberation of Iraq would be beneficial to the world.

http://georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/news/releases/2007/01/20070123-2.html

President George W Bush 2003 State of the Union: "If American forces step back before Baghdad is secure, the Iraqi government would be overrun by extremists on all sides." As we have now seen is exactly what has happened thanks to the ignorant leftwing foreign policy of President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

But really the best proponent of successful liberation was President Clinton in 1998 who actually did emphasis Iraq's WMD's: "Earlier today, I ordered America's armed forces to strike military and security targets in Iraq. They are joined by British forces. Their mission is to attack Iraq's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors.

Their purpose is to protect the national interest of the United States, and indeed the interests of people throughout the Middle East and around the world.

Saddam Hussein must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with nuclear arms, poison gas or biological weapons."

As everyone knows, President Bush had the courage and determination to see this process through. At the end of his 2nd term, the middle east was well on it's way to being a better place for itself, and for the western free world. Unfortunately, what we know now, is the US decided to elect an unqualified disaster as president, and gains have been utterly thrown aside for God knows what reason. Treason possibly, a deep hatred for freedom and liberty, no one will ever really know President Obama's reasoning. His actions have never made sense to anyone living outside a leftwing fantasy land.

As the endless 7 year Obama recession continues thanks to Obamacare, we are now enjoying an explosive .2% growth in GDP for the 1st quarter of 2015.

This follows a weak 2014 4th quarter GDP as well.

"Economists, however, estimate unusually cold weather in February chopped off as much as half a percentage point of growth." Damm that global warming, even that isn't working out how they predicted.

The president is working hard to take his full time jobs lost numbers from 25,000,000 back up to 40,000,000 full time jobs lost. Don't fret, we can surely expect the unemployment rate to fall below 5% anytime. Come on Department of Labor, we know you can find a way to rig get that rate down to George W Bush's 4.5% unemployment numbers despite the 10's of millions who've lost jobs under Obama.

Politics / It's not a date, so lets talk politics and religion...
« on: April 03, 2015, 01:13:39 PM »
The next President ought to 'test the powers of his office' by declaring 'Progressivism' to be a religion, and thus banned from influencing government or promoting their ideas in the public square.

The question is how does one define religion? One's beliefs based on faith? If this were the case, an argument can be made to keep the big bang, evolution, man made global whatever, all out of schools as none are proven, and none can truly be proven. So one must possess much faith in the "science" behind the theories. Is this faith considered religion? Of course not. Should these theories be taught in school? Of course they should. (with emphasis that they are theories)

But why not the history of religions. There are scientists that study the bible, the crucifixion, etc... Why should none of this be mentioned in the classroom? Does the Bible not require the same level of faith as the Big Bang. Mind you I happen to believe in the Big Bang because there is much supporting evidence that leads to it being the most logical explanation of the formation of our universe at this point. That's not to say the theory could'nt be totally different in 100 years when we have better telescopes and computers to further study the universe. To truly prove the theory though, one would need a time machine and decent camera.

So really the question is when does one's faith become religion? Why does the left get to define this? Why is one persons faith banned from public eduction, and not another's?

Politics / ..."Selma"...
« on: March 09, 2015, 08:20:06 PM »
The fact the NY Times decided to cut W and his wife out of the front page photo of last weekends Selma march is no surprise. Whats funnier, a lot funnier is the reality of the march compared to how to times portrayed it. Saw this photo, with arrows pointing to the right edge at where the Bush's were standing hand in hand with others who were there to pay respects to the 50th anniversary of "Selma". You see it and you're immediately taken by the number of people there for march. Looks to be millions! The next photo shows the hysterical reality.

A place to mock the "inspirational" quotes that saturate the intertube. The stuff people copy and paste to make themselves sound smarter than they are. Example: "you can't be a winner without being a loser" printed over a photo of a sunset.

I'll kickoff with one of my favorites:

Politics / Vaccine debate gets heated!
« on: February 04, 2015, 09:07:44 PM »
This is pretty funny. Never seen Anderson Cooper do a better Bill O'reilly imatation. Clearly both are passionate about the vaccine debate. The vaccine debate is interesting because it hasn't had time yet to find party lines. Wealthy Liberals and redneck Conservatives come down on the same side on this one. One can only imagine the time Art would spend with some interesting experts on this issue. Good stuff.

Great piece written by NBA great:


Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Why I Have Mixed Feelings About MLK Day

His legacy may be most in danger from those who admire him

http://time.com/3672907/kareem-abdul-jabbar-why-i-have-mixed-feelings-about-mlk-day/

Why? Because it’s tempting to use this day as a cultural canonization of the man through well-meaning speeches rather than as a call to practice his teachings through direct action.[/font]I have mixed emotions about Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
 
For some, the fact that we have Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a confirmation that the war has been won, that racism has been eliminated. That we have overcome. But we have to look at the civil rights movement like antibiotics: Just because some of the symptoms of racism are clearing up, you don’t stop taking the medicine or the malady returns even stronger than before. Recent events make clear that the disease of racism is still infecting our culture and that Martin Luther King Jr. Day needs to be a rallying cry to continue fighting the disease rather than just a pat on the back for what’s been accomplished.

History has a tendency to commemorate the very thing it wishes to obfuscate. When you convince people that they’ve won, they lose some of their fire over injustice, their passion to challenge the status quo. In Alan Bennett’s brilliant play, The History Boys, one of the teachers explains to his students why a World War I monument to the dead soldiers isn’t really honoring them, but rather keeping people from demanding answers as to how Britain unnecessarily contributed to the cause of the war and is therefore responsible for their deaths. By appealing to our emotional sense of loss, the government’s monument distracts the people from holding the hidden villains responsible. The teacher says, “And all the mourning has veiled the truth. It’s not lest we forget, but lest we remember. That’s what this [war memorial] is about … Because there’s no better way of forgetting something than by commemorating it.”

One of the major debates this year has been whether or not racism exists anymore in America. Not surprisingly, polls indicate that most African Americans say yes it does exist while most white Americans say that it doesn’t. Blacks point to disproportionate prosecution and persecution of blacks by authorities, and whites point to President Obama and dozens of laws protecting and promoting minorities.

They are both right. There are plenty of laws and government agencies dedicated to eradicating racism. America has made it a priority. Affirmative-action programs have created more opportunities for minorities, sometimes at the expense of whites seeking those same opportunities. That should be acknowledged and appreciated.

But suppressing racism is like pressing on a balloon: you flatten one end and it bulges somewhere else. Racism has gone covert. For example, the Republican effort to pass laws demanding IDs to combat voter fraud is itself fraudulent and racist. It is a form of poll tax, which was outlawed in the 24th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The poll tax was designed to keep blacks from voting, as is the voter ID. It costs money and time away from work, which is too great a burden for the poor, many of whom are minorities. The justification given is to stop voter fraud. However, a recent studyconcluded that out of 1 billion votes cast, there have been only 31 incidents of voter fraud.

The reason whites don’t agree that racism is rampant is because most of them aren’t personally racist, and they resent the blanket accusation. In fact, they see themselves as victims of reverse racism. They, too, are right. Dr. King would have acknowledged their pain and fought to alleviate it by reminding us not to confuse institutional racism with the good hearts of our neighbors. The civil rights movement would not have achieved as much as it has without the support and sacrifice of white America.

Dr. King would have been proud to see so many people across America — white and black — joining together to demand accountability in the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. He would have praised the millions who marched in France in support of freedom of speech. As he once said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

He would have also been disturbed by the violence and rioting that has occurred during these protests. We must remember that Dr. King’s cause was not just equality for all people, but achieving that equality through nonviolence. The ends do not justify the means; the means and the ends are the same. Violence insults his legacy. To him, anything won through force is not won at all — it is loss. He wanted equality achieved through love because he wanted to win over his enemies, not defeat them. As he said: “Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.” His goal was to cleanse the community, not to cleave it.

Martin Luther King Jr. was only 39 years old at the time of his assassination nearly 47 years ago. When he died, those whom he had inspired were there to pick up the banner of the cause and continue marching. “I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the promised land!” he told us. “I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land.”
Forty-seven years later, we must continue stepping lively, not in his name but for his cause.

Random Topics / Some great old threads
« on: January 03, 2015, 01:04:55 PM »
With the new format and the no more "recent posts" section I've been forced to adjust my BellGab viewing habits. Decided to go back 33 pages. It's pretty funny reading posts from 2009 about how C2C is dead, and Art must have signed a no compete with clear channel, and UFO Phil sucks.

Funnier are the political views and being able to read the opinions on incidents as the info was SLOWLY becoming public knowledge vs what we now know. Take the Benghazi thread, at the start the opinions and conjecture and what peoples suspicions were as it developed vs what we now know occured. Same can be said reading threads about the 2012 presidential campaigns. Interesting stuff to see who's conjecture was accurate based on what we've now seen happen.

5 years later, a failed satellite radio show, another non-compete, same complaints, same Noory suckage, and they're still playing UFO Phil over Crystal Gayle. As someone else said: it's the perfect metaphore for what C2C has become.

Gives new meaning to "same shit, another day". Anyways take a look at the old threads they're pretty interesting stuff.

I do hate the word "milieu." Had heard it over-used in some class decades ago and ever since associate with a pompous, know-it-all grad student teaching assistant.

Thats because thats what it is.

After reading this I had to ad a few. Others would be "per se", and "ergo". "Ergo" single handedly destroyed the Matrix sequels.

According to ex CIA director Robert Gates new book, president Obama overrode he and VP Biden and ordered the killing of Osama Bin Laden. LOL. Do these idiots ever stop shoveling?

I'm just glad we have a star investigative journalist like Wolf Blitzer of CNN to get this story out. These kind of truths about our noble saviors need be told!
