Just let that sink in a minute. When you're done banging your head on your desk, here's some news.
Palin was again RIGHT. See, I remember when they mocked her for the misunderestimate/refudiate bullshit, and the thing is, they're pretty good words. Hell, the dictionary people agreed refudiate carried a unique meaning and actually made sense. But when mocked by the media, Palin pointed to Shakespeare, and noted that Shakespeare made up words all the time. They howled in laughter and derision. Except what the HELL were they laughing about? See, anyone who knows anything DOES know that Shakespeare made words up ALL THE TIME; hell, half the shit he wrote he MADE UP. He invented the language as he went. Go to one of the Shakespearean Insulter Generators, and tell me you actually believe all those hyphenated words were really just obscure English and we just don't know it now. If you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you. In fact, Shakespeare made shit up. So what were they laughing at? I don't know, but I hope it echoed back to them; stupid dipshits.
In this case, the newest alleged insanity, Palin said that Paul Revere was in part warning the British that we were here, that we were armed, and that they were in trouble. The media howled again. (You know, they really should stop howling.) Well I thought maybe she misspoke, and I have a lot of faith in her intelligence and her being to handle on-the-spot impromptu speaking from a place of being extremely well-read and intelligent. Well, she DEFENDED her remark, and if I had known that I would have realized she probably knew what the hell she was talking about. As a matter of fact, it turns out she ABSOLUTELY DID.
Boston University history professor Brendan McConville said, “Basically when Paul Revere was stopped by the British, he did say to them, ‘Look, there is a mobilization going on that you’ll be confronting,’ and the British are aware as they’re marching down the countryside, they hear church bells ringing — she was right about that — and warning shots being fired. That’s accurate.”
“I would call her lucky in her comments,” McConville said.Yes, I'm sure you would, arrogant prick. Except considering that she stuck to her guns and DEFENDED her remark, there was nothing lucky about it - had it been a slip of the tongue, she could just have said, "Naturally I meant warn the colonists - I was rushed." It wouldn't have been any worse than the "57 states" remark. But she didn't; she stuck to it- if she hadn't known it was true, that would have been a very dumb thing to do. But she's NOT dumb and she KNEW what she was saying, and she IS VINDICATED yet again. So, Mr. McCONville, what's that about the alleged idiot "getting lucky" exactly? You FOOL. Let me tell you, these kind of things - it's GOOD the media blares them left and right, because it only demonstrates to us on the ground that this woman is *truly* educated, is *genuinely* intelligent, and will live to laugh in the faces of her critics yet again. Party like it's 1773, Gwen Ifill and MarKOS!
In other news, HOLY SHIT. Economic Fools Again Are these people mentally ill or what?? What "economists" are these morons listening to?? Oh. Krugman. Not that he's an economist. But holy hell, it's UNREAL what they're saying. Let's shred it.
Is this kind of a wake-up call, do you think, to shift the political debate from what's been all about debt reduction and shift it back to job creation? I mean, is this an opportunity, for instance, to try to talk about creating jobs, and adding, maybe, another stimulus?YES, you idiots, more of what got us INTO this mess is the answer. It'll...create jobs. Or something. (You know, these people don't seem to know what job creation means.)
"We really need a new stimulus" said Krugman.Yes, and you fools will listen to KRUGMAN, a leftist POLITICAL COMMENTATOR and believe he has a fucking clue what he's talking about. HE'S NOT AN ECONOMIST, PEOPLE! Dr. William Anderson explains it in plain English Krugman The Keynesian. Uh, yeah. Fucking Krugman. But the idiocy continues and it's enough to make you pull your hair out!
JOHN BERMAN: But now it [the economy] may have to mend on its own (Note: IF ONLY THEY'D LET IT DO SO!!!), because, practically speaking, there isn't much left the President can do. With the political wars over the debt, there is no chance for another stimulus, no more bank bailouts, there are no federal jobs to offer. And with interest rates at or near zero, the Fed can't do anything to lower them. The President might just have to watch and hope that the American road to recovery, is merely a bumpy road and not a road to nowhere.
Oh FFS!! How many times can we break this down? First of all, the GOVERNMENT DOESN'T AND CAN'T CREATE JOBS. How could they? All they can do is GET OUT OF THE WAY so the REST of us can engage in industry and commerce. But it's worse than that - this fool actually seems to believe (I have my doubts as to whether he REALLY believes it, it's so stupid) - that OFFERING FEDERAL JOBS ALLEVIATES UNEMPLOYMENT. WTF???!!! ARE YOU SHITTING ME? Just think about that logically for a minute, before I shred it on another level. Let's think - WHO PAYS FOR FEDERAL EMPLOYMENT? Ding! Ding! Ding! I heard you thinking "The taxpayers." Correct. WE pay for it. And if WE'RE THE ONES IN TROUBLE and WE DON'T HAVE ANYTHING BECAUSE WE HAVE NO WORK, WHO THE HELL IS SUPPOSED TO PAY TENS OF MILLIONS OF NEW FEDERAL EMPLOYEES?? **Crickets.**
But let's think of it at another level for a moment. You've got 9.1 percent unemployment, and that is only counting the people who qualify for benefits. So you've got some 37 million people right off the bat. But with so many people having had their benefits already end, the REAL rate is estimated at more approaching 20%. So NOW you're talking about 75 million people out of work and hurting. They are scattered to the four winds, all over the country, and they have endless varying levels of education and capability. So what kind of program, using non-existent money, does this dipshit think can be created to employ nearly a hundred MILLION people all over the country with all sorts of varying levels of capability and education at a federal level? Have they done some sort of study to assess the capabilities of the unemployed and to map their locations so that there would be a dozen or so employment centers in every state that take into account these people's needs and skills, and then employ them in some sort of make-busy federal work? The screening alone would take a year, opening these employment centers would...well it would never happen. You could pour a trillion non-existent dollars into that, and it would STILL never work - of course, you could temporarily employ the unemployed to BUILD the buildings (if, that is, you had union builders on unemployment who were available for the job - I mean, and of course you have to get permits and contracts and all the endless red tape of BUILDING things anymore) and they'd never be finished because there isn't enough money in the world. We'd have hundreds of half-finished or never-started buildings all over the country. Of course, it would be a sweet deal for Uncle Sam, as he'd own all that extra land when the dust died down, right? Why not? You might be able to fool the people into buying this, and Bernanke can do some "quantitative easing" (i.e. print fake money; inflation) to pretend the money is there, and you could trump the project from the rooftops and garner reelection, right? Are the American people still this stupid?
They listen to Krugman, don't they?
