Very interesting brief history of immigration in the US.

"As a nation of immigrants, Americans have struggled with border laws for 200 years."

"I had no contact with the governor or his office, and so we were not -- I was not aware of what was happening."

Hopefully this is not true but if it is maybe Obama could benefit by watching the Big Ideas movie "LARRYBOY & THE FIB FROM OUTER SPACE!".

Follow The Money

"In the classic 70’s Watergate movie, All the President’s Men, the secret informant, Deep Throat, said, “Follow the money.” It was how reporters Woodward and Bernstein figured out what was really going on in the Nixon White House. If you want to figure out what is really going on in the economy, you do the same thing—follow the money." -- Greg Hunter

Ignoring the Good News?

"Why is the Fed Chief, all of a sudden, not beating the “recovery” drum? I think someone figured out that if they keep talking up the “recovery” and that does not happen, then the Fed will lose major credibility." -- Greg Hunter

Good 'Ole Bureaucracy

Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert. Congress said, "Someone may steal from it at night." So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.

Then Congress said, "How does the watchman do his job without instruction?" So they created a planning department and hired two people; one person to write the instructions and one person to do time studies.

Then Congress said, "How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?" So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people; one to do the studies and one to write the reports.

Then Congress said, "How are these people going to get paid?" So they created the following positions: a time keeper and a payroll officer, and then hired two people.

Then Congress said, "Who will be accountable for all of these people?" So they created an administrative section and hired three people; an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary.

Then Congress said, "We have had this command in operation for one year and we are $18,000 over budget. We must cutback overall cost." So they laid off the night watchman.

NOW slowly.let it sink in.

Does anybody remember the reason given for the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY during the Carter Administration?


Bottom line. We've spent several hundred billion dollars in support of this agency...the reason for which hardly any person who reads this can remember!

It was very simple...and at the time, everybody thought it very appropriate.

The Department of Energy was instituted on 8-04-1977,


Hey, pretty efficient, huh???

And now it's 2010 -- 33 years later -- and the budget for this "necessary" department is at $24.2 billion a year. They have 16,000 federal employees and approximately 100,000 contract employees; and look at the job they have done! (this is where you slap your forehead and say, "what were they thinking?")

33 years ago 30% of our oil consumption was foreign imports. Today 70% of our oil consumption is foreign imports.

-- good 'ole bureaucracy.
And now, we are going to turn the banking system, health care, and the auto industry over to the same government?

Quietly, we go like sheep to slaughter.

Glad That's Over:

President Barack  Obama's advisers plan to remove terms such as "Islamic radicalism" from a  document outlining national security strategy and will use the new  version to emphasize that the U.S. does not view Muslim nations through  the lens of terrorism, counterterrorism officials say.

 And here I thought those 19 hijackers were Islamic Radicals. Whew! Good thing they were just common criminals. Common criminals who killed nearly 3000 people, destroyed the World Trade Towers. It'll come as a relief to the passengers of who took down the Islamic, keeping them from destroying something The White House. 

Of course, those passengers are dead. Sorry, Mr. Beamer. It appears we've stopped rolling.

Obama's policy of slapping allies

Interesting take by Charles Krauthammer on Obama and our Allies:

"For those who know no history -- or who believe that it began on Jan. 20, 2009 -- and therefore don't know why this was an out-of-the-blue slap at Britain, here's the back story:"

The One Surefire Economic Prediction

How could the dollar not be weakened significantly with our current debt?

"The debt and commitments of America are just too large to ever payoff without printing vast sums of money. The federal debt and obligations stand at $71 trillion. And, as if that is not bad enough, that number is bound to increase dramatically in the next few years. Trillions of dollars will be spent on Fannie and Freddie, unfunded wars, bailouts of most of the states in the union, thousands of bank failures and ballooning government deficits–and these are just the highlights." - Greg Hunter

It is like “Baghdad Bob” is telling us everything is OK!

I just do not understand why Congress passed health care reform with all of the impediments we have to economic recovery. How is this “recovery” going to take hold? There are ballooning government deficits, new all-time records for foreclosures, fresh batch of insolvent banks that are taken over by the FDIC, hundreds of trillions of dollars in unregulated derivatives (like the ones wrecking the Greek economy) and dozens of U.S. states in dire financial trouble—to name a few! All this is just some of the backdrop for which Congress passed health care reform. These problems, and many more, make talking up a recovery look like “Baghdad Bob” is writing the wire copy.
