Radicals needed.

I am trying to get ready and pumped up for O's big speech. Popcorn? Check. Television? Check. Foot up on coffee table? (Mrs. Field out of town on business.) Check. This should be fun.

But not so fast; someone is trying to be a killjoy. I was reading George Will's article today, and he was writing about what a radical president Obama is because of his political ideology and leanings.

I suppose, that in his mind, Mr. Will felt that he was dissing Obama by comparing him to Wilson and Roosevelt. In his mind. For those of us secular progressives in America, that article was actually an approbation of Barack Obama. If only Barack Obama himself would embrace all of the labels that the [right] wingnuts constantly throw at him.

"As such, Obama has earned what he now receives, the tribute of a serious intellectual exegesis by a distinguished political philosopher. In “I Am the Change: Barack Obama and the Crisis of Liberalism,” Charles Kesler of Claremont McKenna College rightly says Obama is “playing a long, high-stakes game.” Concerning the stakes, Obama practices prudent reticence, not specifying America’s displeasing features that are fundamental. Shortly before the 2008 election, he said only: “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming” America. Tonight, consider Obama’s acceptance speech in the context that Kesler gives it in the American political tradition.
Progress, as progressives understand it, means advancing away from, up from, something. But from what?

From the Constitution’s constricting anachronisms. In 1912, Wilson said, “The history of liberty is the history of the limitation of governmental power.” But as Kesler notes, Wilson never said the future of liberty consisted of such limitation"

I am not sure that Mr. Will -or Mr. Kessler for that matter- can read President Wilson's mind anymore than I can, but I certainly hope that is what he meant. Because, I would submit to Mr. Will, that by limiting government we do not insure liberty for all. Quite the opposite. Those individuals who owned slaves in the South were not going to end that practice on their own. They weren't going to stop the practice because their pastors said that it was wrong. Women didn't get the right to vote because their husbands all of a sudden wanted to discuss politics with them over the dinner table.

I have some news for Mr.Will: we are the government.The people. That is what makes a true democracy.

"Wilson, the first transformative progressive, called this the “New Freedom.” The old kind was the Founders’ kind — government existing to “secure” natural rights (see the Declaration) that preexist government. Wilson thought this had become an impediment to progress. The pedigree of Obama’s thought runs straight to Wilson.

And through the second transformative progressive, Franklin Roosevelt, who counseled against the Founders’ sober practicality and fear of government power: “We are beginning to wipe out the line that divides the practical from the ideal” and are making government “an instrument of unimagined power” for social improvement. The only thing we have to fear is fear of a government of unimagined power:"

No, the "only thing we have to fear" are individuals who would choose to subvert the government (and thus the will of the people) to push forward their own selfish and backwards agenda. The right is full of radicals, it's time the left got some radicals of their own. Sorry George, I know that it doesn't fit into your narrative, but Barack Obama is not a radical.

"This, says Kesler, is “the First Law of Big Government: the more power we give the government, the more rights it will give us.” It also is the ultimate American radicalism, striking at the roots of the American regime, the doctrine of natural rights" [Source]

Remember George, we are the government. It can't get any more natural than that.

MSNBC? Check.

George Will was born already a cynical 62 year old man, a century too late for his temperament, and on the wrong side of the Atlantic for his political philosophy. Of course he sees Obama as the inheritor of an anti-colonialist radical (21st century code for "upstart wog") when he himself is a Victorian Imperialist Tory at heart.

n May 1939, Treasury Secretary Henry J. Morgenthau Jr., one of Franklin Roosevelt's best friends, testified before the House Ways and Means Committee: "I say after eight years of this Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started… And an enormous debt to boot" (p. 2). When he spoke, unemployment exceeded 20 percent. Further, and here Folsom has absorbed the pioneering research of Robert Higgs, not even the onset of World War II ended the Depression. True enough, unemployment ended; but this was only because of the draft.

No thank you. Roosevelt part II is the last thing we need. We already have Obama first and likely last.

“the First Law of Big Government: the more power we give the government, the more rights it will give us.”


This election is the most important this country has ever had. The Left is now openly advocating tearing up the Constitution and overthrowing the American government founded on the principle of natural rights. That is the true meaning of "fundamental change" that has been hidden from a gullible public by a complicit media.

I'm glad the mask is finally coming off. It's up to the American people now to see it for what it is.

Stop Barry for breaking the law and dumping on the constitution.

They are funny though they are going to lose so bad. Imagine all they have to say is BARACK IS going to save Medicare, he did really. By taking 716 Billion out for Obamacare he will reduce payments to Doctors and Hospitals and save it for TEN YEARS yes you heard me folks, he won't pay doctors or hospitals and it will be good for another Eight years.

Uh-huh so, let me see if I have this right Barack. You took the budget for medicare of 716 billion use it as the budget for Obamacare which is now way over 2 trillion anyway, count this money as savings from medicare and savings for Obamacare twice, you expect doctors and hospitals to keep taking medicare when most of them are already dropping patients like like hot cakes already and even with all of this, you still only give it 8 years until it collapses and goes into bankruptcy and is eliminated?

Yup, who voted for this guy anyway? I hope you aren't near medicare age or have any old folk in your family IF he gets re-elected you will have to euthanize them.

Obama said he wants to take on the debt, if only the Republicans would coooperate. What happened to the debt in Obama’s first two years, when he didn’t have to negotiate with Republicans, and, in fact, cut them out of the process completely?

He didn't gain a single congressional vote for his last two budgets, not even from his own party!

How is that the Republican's fault?

I look forward to the debates when Romney rips Obama and Ryan rips Biden. I don't see any other scenario.

But don't worry, Mr Field. I have connections and I will use them if it means keeping FN open. You must understand that conservatives have been discussing the name Field Negro for some time as well as your slights at Republicans in your posts.

I have tried to tell you and your posters like PilotX not to make false accusations against the GOP. But you did it anyway.

Obama, like everyone else who spoke at the Dem convention, said NOTHING about his mother -- Stanley Ann.

He may have said she got sick and died. However, he said NOTHING about his fathers, the guys who beat and abused his mother.

His fathers took her out of the country to beat her, so the anti-violence laws that Joe said he worked for were meaningless.

But muslims don't pay attention to those laws anyway.

He spoke about his grandparents even though his mother appeared to hate them.

Field, you should watch the fox coverage and flip back and forth between Fox and MSNBC. When I am on MSNBC I hear how Clinton was so good Martians would want to mate with him by leg tingles, or tonight when Obama said civility he was telling everyone of course I am a citizen... When I watch FOX I hear a very cerebral analysis clearly some people are Conservatives some are liberals but none go off into nonsense land or emotional rants, just opinions based on facts. I hope MSNBC viewership picked up this week, I doubt it, it is one of the lowest rated networks but I do hope people see who they are.

Well, I guess that has already been done, Microsoft disassociated itself from them as they are plain to use your word "unhinged."

This unfortunately is a man who has no self respect and expects people who listen to him to have none either.

"Rep. John Lewis used his Thursday convention speech to argue that a GOP victory in November will send African-Americans back to the early 1960s, when he and other Africans-Americans were forcibly denied access to restaurants, public transportation and the ballot box.

“I’ve seen this before, I lived this before,” he claimed, after extensively describing his activism in Southern states in the 1950 and 1960s.

“We were met by an angry mob that beat us and left us lying in a pool of blood,” he said to raucous applause from roughly 20,000 delegates and activists.

“Brothers and sisters, do you want to go back?” he called, prompted a loud response of “No!”

“Or do you want to keep America moving forward?” he asked Sept. 6 to raucous applause from roughly 20,000 delegates and activists."

John Lewis:

In March 2010 a report that Lewis and another black Congressman, Andre Carson, had been called the N-word by Tea Party protesters outside the Capitol received media attention.

Some conservative sources criticized the claim, saying that no video showed up to prove the charges, and the videotapes of the event that later surfaced seemed to in fact disprove them.

The New York Times issued a correction in July 2010, acknowledging that there was no evidence of Tea Party members hurling racial epithets at Lewis and Carson.

Andrew Breitbart offered a $100,000 reward for anyone who could provide audio or video evidence of one of these instances, but none surfaced.

The New Deal was the worst thing that ever happened to this country and it did absolutely nothing but plunge us into debt with no change whatsoever on the economy, WWII improved unemployment because it took men out of the workforce.

We don't like communism and we aren't as you say as 'intellectual" as you to ever even think that this time it would be better than the times your idealogy has been tried in the past. Of course because this time you are involved it would be better than the times it was tried by Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Mussolini, Pol Pot and more.

P.S if you really want to see how shallow Obama is, read up on Roosevelt. Nothing he says is original, he like you thinks he is better than Roosevelt was and this time he can make it work. He also thinks that he can do better than roosevelt and has the same agenda:

Ramify the authority and power of executive government—its power, that is, to rule by decrees and rules and regulations of its own making.

Strengthen its hold on the economic life of the nation.

Extend its power over the individual.

Degrade Congress and the parliamentary principle.

Impair the great American tradition of an independent Constitutional judicial power.


Weaken all other powers—private enterprise, private finance, and the power of state and local governments.

Venezuela Holds U.S. Vessel And Crew On Suspicion Of Arms Trafficking

The Venezuelan government has seized a U.S. flagged ship and detained its captain for more than a week.

Since August 29 the ship Ocean Atlas has been at port in Maracaibo, Venezuela, where it docked to unload a cargo of equipment. Yet after four hours in port, the ship was boarded and searched by armed security personel, and the captain was detained on suspicion of trafficking in arms or drugs.

The rest of the crew of 15 Americans has remained on board under guard. According to a well-placed source arrest warrants have been issued for all of the crewmembers, who are to be taken off the ship for questioning.

Incredibly, my Forbes colleague Jeff Bercovici has been in touch over email with one of the crewmen, Russell Macomber, who has managed to post updates to his Facebook account while under detention.

In a sardonic tone, Macomber even relayed that when Venezuelan authorities raided the Ocean Atlas they stole cartons of cigarettes, ate the crew’s ice cream and let their dogs defecate on the deck.

Macomber writes that he would like nothing more than an airdrop of Budweiser. (Read Jeff’s post and Macomber’s account here.)

Officials at the ship’s operator, Intermarine, did not immediately respond to Forbes’ requests for information.

Nor did officials at American Maritime Officers, which is believed to have provided the crew for the ship.

A spokeswoman at the Venezuelan embassy in Washington said she would look into the incident.

Shaddap Fruitcake. Why would you think calling a fruitcake a fruitcake is hurtful? Have you been hit with fruitcakes and gotten hurt by being a fruitcake? After all they are fruitcakes and most fruitcakes know they are fruitcakes and they say fruitcakes themselves so any rational person who is a fruitcake knows they are a fruitcake and wouldn't mind being called a fruitcake by someone who recognizes that they are a fruitcake, because those fruitcakes call other fruitcakes fruitcakes if the fruitcake-ness is evident and they are clearly fruitcakes. Right Fruitcake?

Your diatribe was very reminiscent of someone who is a fruitcake and an empty fruitless one - Hey speaking of fruitless did you know that fruitcakes don't really have any fruit? The real fruitcakes not the fruitcakes like you who are just fruitcakes and swear Al Sharpton has natural straight hair that rascally fruitcake, no really fruitcakes have no fruit and yet real fruitcakes in life are often fruity. Go figure.

The stat wonks are expecting a nice bump for the President out of what clearly was a superior convention -- but bounces are so named because they don't last. Later, my brother!

Thanks for the 411 on Mr. Krauthammer people. I thought I saw him for a brief moment on television last night, but I couldn't tell if he was dead or alive. :)

Jobu, the jobs report will be out at 8:30 this morning. If we created over 150,000.00 jobs the bounce will be a little larger, if not, no bounce for O.

It's all about the economy from here on out.

BTW wingnuts, why isn't flipper buying ads. here in Pistolvania? After all their efforts at voter suppression here do they still believe that we are not in play?

That would be sad. I like a close election in my state. I want my vote to really matter.

Mr Field, the ADP jobs estimate yesterday leads us to believe the number will be good.

What did Obama speak about last night?

Imaginary things. A few comments stuck out.

He said something about Americans making stuff, manufacturing things. He spoke about For Us, By Us.

To me those words sounded like they were stolen from FUBU, the clothing line for blacks.

So he's into black nationalism. His own form of mercantilism.

He subtly told viewers that taxes were going up. But he let that one out while sharing one of his imaginary scenarios. The one where he claims to have cut taxes.

He imagined he'd saved Detroit. Has anyone been to Detroit in the last few years? It's empty. The police department has stopped patrolling parts of the city.

GM stock has performed almost as poorly as Facebook stock. That's worth thinking about.

Due to its bankruptcy and restructuring, GM was showered in government subsidies. But its stock has crashed. In other words, investors believe its future is limited. Very limited.

That's what you get when the government controls processes that should remain in the hands of the free market.

Obama said -- and the nutty ex-gov of Michigan, and nutty VP Biden, Biden's wife, Michelle, and a long list of other dimwits also said -- that he "saved" a million auto-making jobs.

What utter nonsense. GM makes no money selling Impalas and Malibus. It makes all its money building SUVs and Pick-up Trucks.

The bankruptcy process should have slimmed the company down to the lines of business that are solid.

But, no, not in Obamaland, where taxpayers can be saddled with the debt tied to building products that earn no profits for the manufacturer.

That's Obamaland -- a country where corporations become Non-Profit Enterprises dependent on government subsidies to keep workers employed.

john d rockefeller said...

Obama said a few words about solar energy, but didn't linger on the topic long enough for anyone to conjure up Solyndra.

He trotted out the same old embarrassing statistics about "alternative energy" -- that the use of alternatives has "doubled" since he's been in office.

Yeah. From 1% to 2%, an increase only possible due to huge subsidies.

One funny moment occurred when he showed his ignorance of large and small numbers.

He claimed, as others have claimed, that the US oil industry receives "subsidies" of $4 Billion. But he neglects to mention that domestic US oil industry revenue is over A TRILLION DOLLARS.

Get it? Four Billion is a rounding error. And taking away those un-named "subsidies" -- which were granted by the government -- would neither slow down oil consumption in the US nor raise the appeal of solar power.

Obama is a lost man. A failed leader. A man who can't admit that gains in the oil & gas industry were the result of companies making an end-run around government restrictions.

North Dakota is now the Number Two Oil Producing State in America BECAUSE all the drilling is occurring on Private Property -- and it's done by combining Hydraulic Fracturing with Horizontal Drilling.

As long as Obama, the oil-hater president, refuses to allow drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, we will know where he stands on oil and the oil industry.

This clown says he wants to bring jobs back to America. Well, oil drilling began in America in 1859. It was a domestic business until almost 1930. Then oil was found in the middle east and things changed.

In recent years, over half our oil came from other countries -- even though we have plentiful reserves here.

Why in the world would a president who says he wants to bring jobs back to America do his best to STOP the return of Oilfield Jobs. The easiest of all jobs to bring back to America.

What an anti-American moron he is.

Unemployment down to 8.1%. Is this what you get with Obama? Corruption Lies and deceit while he covers the horrible economy?

"In August, two months ahead of the presidential election ahead of which this number will be one of the most critical and talked about, the US generated just 96,000 non-farm payroll jobs, on expectations of 130K additions, and compared to the July number of 163,000, now revised to 143,000K. Private payrolls rose by a modest 103,000, much lower than the expected number of 142K, and down from July's revised 162K. -15,000 manufacturing jobs were lost, compared to the expected +10K, and sadly just a little bit short of Obama's recent promise to add 1 million manufacturing jobs by 2016. Finally, while the unemployment rate came lower (surprise, surprise: this is what appears in newspapers) at 8.1%, far lower than expectations of 8.3%, and below last month's 8.3%, the broad total underemployment rate (U-6) continues to be sticky at 14.7%. Birth Death added 87,000, up from July's 52,000. The reason for the drop in the unemployment rate: labor force participation dropped to 63.5%, down from 63.7%. Oddly enough, this report leaves the NEW QE door open, even as Obama can take the accolade for a declining unemployment rate. Win-win for everyone."

No shit - It was in the news all day yesterday that the number would be good, except it was a lot less jobs than even they expected to float, including more jobs lost in July. Manipulation of these numbers is illegal, yet under Obama it happens.

"Curious why the unemployment rate dropped from 8.3% to 8.1%, even as just 96,000 jobs were added? The labor participation rate declined from 63.7% to 63.5%, the lowest since 1981. It means that somehow in August the labor force declined by 368,000 people, which is a paradox since according to the household survey 119,000 jobs were lost in August, yet at the same time the unemployment rate dropped. Remember: it is an election year.

The defining line for Obama -- Well Below Expectations.

The New York Times

Friday, September 7, 2012 -- 8:45 AM EDT

U.S. Added 96,000 Jobs in August; Unemployment Rate Fell to 8.1%

The economy added 96,000 jobs in August, well below expectations, adding pressure on Federal Reserve policy makers, who have hinted they will act to stimulate the economy when they meet next week.

However, the jobless rate fell to 8.1 percent, from 8.3 percent in July, an indication that more unemployed workers were discouraged about the propsects of
finding new jobs.

Sigh, Bob so liberal so smug, so weak. Your kind will never supplant the constitution. Our rights are not dependant upon government, government is to exist for administrative purposes and must adhere to the constitution to ensure it does not infringe upon our rights!!

Imagine being so weak and mindless and useless that you believe that you should be dependent upon the government to gain any rights when they were already god given .

This is why FDR was a horrible president, he thought government were our rulers and not our employees. Small men believe in such drivel from the early 1900's.

For if Romney wins and as your ruler outlaws anal sex, then your rights and proclivities will change dramatically having a ruler who does not agree with you, won't they?

Insane is not intellectual, it is insane.

Hmmmmm. Might that have anything to do with John Kerry accusing his buddies of "cutting off heads" and "rape"????

Just asking.

Breaking: Unemployment Rate At 8.1%, 368K Americans Drop Out Of Work Force, Only 96K Jobs Added. Update: Would Be 8.4% If Labor Force Had Stayed Same…

So less jobs, more jobs lost, yet almost 400k of those people just magically disappeared for Obama to make the unemployment rate 8.1 instead of rising to 8.4%

No actualy the Gov's statistics as reported by the BLS in the U6 unemployment rate is 14.7% for August and they changed the number of jobs DOWN 50k for july so unemployment was really 8.4% in JULY

Eastwood says his convention appearance was 'mission accomplished'


By PAUL MILLER

Published: September 7, 2012

AFTER A week as topic No. 1 in American politics, former Carmel Mayor Clint Eastwood said the outpouring of criticism from left-wing reporters and liberal politicians after his appearance at the Republican National Convention last Thursday night, followed by an avalanche of support on Twitter and in the blogosphere, is all the proof anybody needs that his 12-minute discourse achieved exactly what he intended it to.


“President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,” Eastwood told The Pine Cone this week.

“Romney and Ryan would do a much better job running the country, and that’s what everybody needs to know. I may have irritated a lot of the lefties, but I was aiming for people in the middle.”

That's because you have become conditioned to leg tingles theatrics and antics, Schulz insane outrages, Sharp-toons irredeemable inarticulate illiteracy and Maddow's bi-polar emotional swings.

You have to be crazy to swallow and vomit the things they all say. Did Clinton ever mate with those martians like leg tingles was saying?

The BLS reports unemployment has dropped .2 percent, to 8.1 percent. That's good, right? The recovery is on the way! Well, not so much:

The reason the unemployment rate "edged down" is that 1.483 million people gave up and exited the workforce! The Department of Labor Lies doesn't count anyone who gives up any longer, so the "unemployment rate" is claimed to have decreased. But what's worse is that there were a net 868,000 fewer people with jobs in August over July, despite there being 212,000 more people of working age in the population. That's right -- net-on-net over one million fewer people (adjusted for population change) were working last month.

If you want a more realistic picture of what is happening regarding employment, have a look at this chart:

One additional item relates to Biden’s integrity. In the fascinating biography of Teamsters and Mafia hit-man Frank Sheeran, “I Heard You Paint Houses,” the lifelong thug describes a favor he performed while he was president of Teamsters Local 326 in Wilmington, Delaware.

In 1972 Sheeran received a visit from “a very prominent lawyer” he knew who was “very big in the Democratic Party” in Delaware. The November general election was approaching, and the race for the U.S. Senate seat held by a Republican was expected to be close. The lawyer wanted help in preventing the distribution of a paid Republican political ad – an insert in the Delaware-wide newspapers – that would run for a week and expose the campaign misrepresentations by the Democratic challenger. Sheeran promised the operative that he “would hire some people and put them on the picket line.” He added, “People nobody would mess with.”

The picket line went up, the papers were not delivered all week, and, as Sheeran said, “The day after the election the informational picket line came down, and the newspaper went back to normal and Delaware had a new United States Senator.” His name was Joe Biden. Thereafter, said admitted extortionist, thief and murderer Sheeran, of Biden, “You could reach out for him, and he would listen.”

Poor Pilot, like many of his brethren he has the inability to recognize shoddy reasoning and emotional manipulation. He does not know what the words mean; he does not know how to ward them off or blunt their edge or fling them back; he is a prey to words in their emotions instead of being a master of his intellect.

You here Republcans say all the time "Obama's a nice guy but..." or "I'm sure Joe Biden is a decent man but.."

That's why this race is close, because the dumbass Republicans are clueless. Obama is not "nice". Biden is not "decent". They are corrupt liars who will say anything to hold onto power.
