A Trip Down Memory Lane

A San Francisco Chronicle columnist, writing about Barack Obama, in 2008 ("Is Obama an enlightened being? ..."):
No, it's not merely his youthful vigor, or handsomeness, or even inspiring rhetoric. It is not fresh ideas or cool charisma or the fact that a black president will be historic and revolutionary in about a thousand different ways. It is something more. Even Bill Clinton, with all his effortless, winking charm, didn't have what Obama has, which is a sort of powerful luminosity, a unique high-vibration integrity.

Dismiss it all you like, but I've heard from far too many enormously smart, wise, spiritually attuned people who've been intuitively blown away by Obama's presence - not speeches, not policies, but sheer presence - to say it's just a clever marketing ploy, a slick gambit carefully orchestrated by hotshot campaign organizers who, once Obama gets into office, will suddenly turn from perky optimists to vile soul-sucking lobbyist whores, with Obama as their suddenly evil, cackling overlord.

Here's where it gets gooey. Many spiritually advanced people I know (not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual) identify Obama as a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment. These kinds of people actually help us evolve. They are philosophers and peacemakers of a very high order, and they speak not just to reason or emotion, but to the soul.

The unusual thing is, true Lightworkers almost never appear on such a brutal, spiritually demeaning stage as national politics. This is why Obama is so rare. And this why he is so often compared to Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., to those leaders in our culture whose stirring vibrations still resonate throughout our short history.
Obama could claim to be prepared to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet and was not laughed out of the room.

Now, four years on ...


... I wonder if this dope is a tad disappointed that things are worse today than they were before Obama's ascendancy.

I think I'd be putting him on suicide watch.

"... that rare kind of attuned being who ... can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet ..."

For the love of God.

Another Woeful Unemployment Report

Senator George Allen- in a press release - has a response:
Henrico, VA – Today George Allen released the following statement in response to the Department of Labor’s unemployment report for October showing the unemployment rate worsening to 7.9 percent:

“This jobs report is a reminder of the Obama/Kaine policies that have diminished job opportunities for Americans. The American people deserve much better opportunities,” said George Allen. “As Democrats’ national party chairman, Tim Kaine supported the policies that have left us deeper in debt, with a bigger government and over 20 million Americans unemployed or underemployed. Now another 200,000 jobs are threatened because of the debt deal Tim Kaine said was the ‘right thing to do.’

“While my opponent has tried to talk about everything but jobs, my campaign has been based on a pro-jobs growth plan, my Blueprint for America’s Comeback. We can create over 500,000 new jobs a year with a more simple, fair and competitive tax code, reasonable regulations, and unleashed American energy resources and empowering education policies. I will stand for Virginia jobs by stopping these devastating defense cuts. I want to be Virginians’ voice in the U.S. Senate because I know my job is to fight for their jobs.”
Over 20 million Americans still unemployed or underemployed.

Last time I looked, Tim Kaine's one and only initiative was to improve education.

Like schooling those 20 million Americans will somehow produce jobs.

We need employers, not diplomas.

Things Democrats Will Never Say

Solar Panels Don't Work!

But admit it or not ...
New York (TheStreet) -- As one solar company after another goes out of business, here is what investors do not know and promoters will not tell you: Solar panels do not work that well.

Sometimes not at all. But for several years, most solar systems, big and small, were so heavily subsidized, they were practically free. So lots of people did not really care.

Not enough to check the output of their systems. The few who did often had a big surprise.
Read the whole thing.  The information provided might shock you.

Or not.
