NY Times: Put Everyone On Welfare

When you advocate, as the New York Times editorial page does this morning (see "The Jobs Crisis"), that President Obama solve the unemployment crisis in this country by spending trillions on a host of make-work projects, without any real interest in what work might be targeted, the plan becomes one of welfare, not job creation.

So why play games?

It's welfare.  Nothing more.

Man up and call it that.

Why 'Climate Change' Is Now a Knock-Knock Joke

From Al Gore's website two months ago:

"The sea-level is now rising faster along the U.S. Atlantic coast than at any time in the past 2,100 years, and this surge is linked to increasing global temperatures, an international research team reports.”


Really?

From Der Spiegel:


Crazy Al blames rising sea levels on global warming.

Guess what the author of the study cited by Der Spiegel blames dropping sea levels on.

Global warming.

So, what the heck.  What say we meet half way:


And yes, both phenomena will be blamed on ...

These guys make me giggle.

"Al Gore announced he is finishing up a new book about global warming and the environment. Yeah, the first chapter talks about how you shouldn't chop down trees to make a book that no one will read."
-- Conan O'Brien --

And With a Straight Face ...


Three years and counting ...

Why Unemployment Remains Devastatingly High

"Employers are about the last people in the world that this administration is worried about.”

Obama thinks badly of those of us in the corporate world.

He should have expected a response in kind.

Connecting the dots: Raid guitar plants in Tennessee for bullshit reasons, trash corporations as evil, demonize the rich at every turn, heap crushing regulations on an already overburdened business sector, and you end up with sluggish economic growth and no job creation.

Not that our Professor-in-Chief would ever understand such a real-world concept. 

Kelo Update

You know that cute little house that Susette Kelo owned up in Connecticut until it was seized by the government for the purpose of enriching a local land developer?

Remember Kelo v. City of New London?

The seizure that the Supreme Court of the United States approved despite the written word in the Constitution that restricted such a taking?

In the aftermath of Hurricane Irene, it's become a dump.

Ms. Kelo deserved better from her government.  As did we.
