A Silver Lining and a Conundrum
Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:Mike PHX, 11/8/2012 4:55:56 AM

I can see only one good outcome from yesterday’s election: the fact that Barack Obama will be the president who inherits the mess left by Barack Obama. The economy is in awful shape; it won’t get much better given Obama’s policies, and may get worse. Many billions of dollars in capital that have been sitting on the sidelines, awaiting the outcome of this year’s election, will now give up on the United States and go elsewhere. Plants will be built in Korea and Brazil that would have been built here if the election had gone differently.

They don't call me anything except optimistic! No siree, we won't take this lying down, by crackee!

Oh, God (sob)...we're doomed.

Mitt would have been blamed for the crash that is almost certainly coming. Small consolation, but true.

They will continue to blame it on Bush, of course. Nothing is ever Obama's fault.

What can we do to prepare for the coming crash? Is cash king now? Store food? Ammo? I wonder if it will happen quickly? Posters please share what you are doing to get ready.

We are doomed for a while. This is where we fellow conservatives take care of each other and ride out the storm and I hope we don't see another holocaust in our kids lifetimes.

You know,in an old Star Trek movie,they had a self destruct sequence to blow the ship up while allowing themselves enough time to beam to a safe planet.Our self destruct sequence started in Obama first term and now the second phase has started with his re-lelection. The only problem is we don't have a safe planet to beam to.

It's easy to say the country is lost now and will get even worse.We don't have a Captain Kirk to save our azzes from certain doom.

While Romney was no Captain Kirk,he would have at least stabilized the country and caused renewed optimism. Obama gives you nothing but a likeable personality who has no clue on problem solving ans worst of all,completely unpredictable.

There's no doubt in my mind Obama won this election with a few thousand well placed illegal votes in swing states.

Even UN observers were stunned at how laxed our system is on ID and voting the day day as registering.You have backward countries that vote with marbles that have more integrity than our system.

NOTE to Hinderaker >>>>>>> There is NO Silver Lining.

My Friends are all planing to leave the country ...... ie go into exile abroad.

Though some are having discussion about where is best.

One man I know of, tendered his resignation from the military Nov 7th.

And it's going to get a lot lot worse.

Remember .... the Great Leader will have 3 THREE appointments to the supreme court

I for one, hope the Republicans vote for a massive tax increase on ALL citizens. Screw the 47% who don't pay jack. Start taxing wealth, let Warren Buffett and Jay Z opine on how much more taxes they want to pay. Make these rich libs pay their.fair.share.

I will probably sell my entire 401k in the next week or two. Yes, I'll pay a huge penalty. But better something now than nothing later. And by later, I mean in a year. I haven't forgotten that libs can't stand that our retirement money isn't theirs. They WILL be confiscating these sooner, rather than later. If Congress won't pass it, President Jarrett will issue a decree, oops, I mean an Executive Order.

There's no silver lining. None. Brian Williams still has 'integrity', Diane Sawyer may be drunk on the air, but they still call the shots and decide what America knows and doesn't know.

I am looking forward to the plan to be outlined by Mark Levin on his show. He hinted at it by pointing out that we now have more GOP governors than ever. By the way Christie was not on board with Levin's last push re an Obamacare challenge in SCOTUS. Let's hear out Levin on his plan. He was fantasizing for a few minutes about leaving some states for the libs and taking over others for conservatives to live in. Now if people are willing to move to correct the problem this fulfills one condition. Liberals are like locusts. They consume everything in one state and then move to another that is still viable because it was governed by conservatives. Where do you move? New Zealand? How about taking over a state such as texas while you still can and succeeding from the union? Just thinking out loud while I await the plan of Mark Levin.

FTA; "I confess that I am looking forward to watching Obama squirm."

The only thing from the article I disagree with. A person needs to be sane and in touch with reality to "squirm". Obama is neither, therefore he doesn't know how to squirm or feel the need to.

Any person who can stand before the worldwide cameras, with head hypnotically turning back and forth like an old time oscillating fan, never stopping dead center to make eye contact, and tell a preposterous lie with every oscillation, is firmly and permanently in the twilight zone.

He started his journey into this land of make believe preteen and has had lots of help from minions of manipulating black hearted people through out the journey.

His insanity and narcissism have generated the detachment that is his firewall against reality. By default, he surrounds himself with similar people, all "no squirm" types.

America's best hope (impeachment is impossible and death is unthinkable) for the return of the Republic we know and love is for Obama to "go around the bend" sufficiently for the 25th, Sec.4 to require his removal.

Drastic and harsh words (and a long shot), absolutely, but necessary. Obama has been destructive for this nation since first elected because of deficiencies in eligibility, sensibility, reliability, and several more "bilities".

If America, and ALL its citizens, travel the current path for four more years, its "recoverability" may be lost forever.

Small businesses WILL NOT be hiring, heck many will just close shop. I hope that some lay off their liberal employees, let them collect unemployment, then starve while waiting for the next cushy job to come along. For me, I will try to find something that pays in cash. This area is a poor area, so no great hope for anything big. I am done being nice to the opposition. Keeping my head down and my thoughts to myself.

NOTE to #8

Succession of US States has not been legal since the Civil War and Great Leader and Congressional Ds won't allow it ................ where else will they get the funds to run the govt. [repay their friends and bribe their voters].

Bank transfers, Treasury and Municipal bonds will also NOT be payable to those in these states, and even possibly royalties, etc.**

Also Pension Checks, Social Security, and Medicare will be cut off for those in these states. [which will hurt retirees]**

** Remember HE will have 3 Supreme Court Appointments, as well as lower Appellate and Federal Courts ones as well.

Liquidating assets for exile abroad is the only solution, unless you're young enough to emigrate.

Talk Radio may also be branded as radical, [such as Putin has done to ordinary ethnic Nationalists, who are now in exile abroad] so Radio Free America from overseas may be necessary.

This is true for the state I live in. I saw a few political ads during football games but that's about it, no signs, no phone calls, no rallies, nothing. Maybe the GOP had gone all out in all 50 states ...

Re the three SCOTUS picks.. Usually the ones who retire do so when their own kind are in the whitehouse. If he replaces three hacks with younger worse hacks it is bad but not fatal. Can the four good justices ( not counting Roberts who has shown he can be manipulated by bad press ) hang on for a while?

It is beyond terrible that we won't have Mitt Romney's skills to turn things around. Here is what is immediately on our doorstep -- scary stuff!

Tax rates will rise for almost everyone on January 1 if Congress does not act. Here’s a rundown, according to the tax firm Ernst & Young:

• The federal capital gains tax rate will rise from 15% to a maximum of 24.7%.
• The federal tax rate on dividends will rise from 15% to a maximum of 44.7%.
• The federal tax rate on interest will rise from 15% to a maximum of 44.7%.
• The payroll tax will rise from 4.2% to a maximum of 6.2%.
• The estate tax, currently applicable to estates above $5 million, will be applied to estates worth just $1 million.

According to #17's Ernst & Young tax list, I'm going to get hit with a maximum 2% tax increase. And let me just say that the feds can raised the tax on interest to 100% and they'll make about $5 since there is no interest being paid on checking, savings or CD accounts.

To continue the play with analogies here, does everyone remember the sequel to "Silence of the Lambs" called simply "Hannibal"? At the end of the movie, Hannibal is handcuffed to Clarice and the police are about to break into his house and apprehend him. At this point, he picks up a hatchet and raises it over his head saying, "This is REALLY going to hurt!" Unlike what Clarice expected him to do, he copped off his own hand. The few adults that may still be around need to be Hannibal to protect Clarise, our grandchildren. Will they?

Last weekend mysterious posters of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared in various locations around Beverly Hills. The posters featured an image of Cruz’s head — complete with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth — photoshopped onto a heavily inked torso. The headline on the posters read, “Beverly Hilton: Ted Cruz’s So-Cal ‘Blacklisted and Loving It’ Tour.” Cruz was in California last weekend to speak at the Claremont Institute’s Churchill dinner. The story went viral, appearing in media outlets as diverse as Drudge, Breitbart, Time, and Huffington Post. Most of them applauded Cruz’s sense of humor when he tweeted: “Saw

NEW YORK (AP) — Comic actor Dave Madden, who played the child-hating agent on the hit 1970s sitcom "The Partridge Family," died in Florida on Thursday at age 82. Madden died at a hospice center near his home in the Jacksonville area, his niece Mary Frances Miller said. Towering and rumpled, Madden was best known for his role as Reuben Kinkaid, who managed the Partridge family band and regularly clashed with its impish pre-teen bassist, played by Danny Bonaduce. While the series starred Shirley Jones, with her real-life stepson David Cassidy as the resident heart-throb, it was Madden and the freckle-faced Bonaduce who

The decision in 1967 to feature a harpsichord behind Linda Ronstadt on "Different Drum" wasn´t a stretch. Throughout the decade, the high-strung keyboard was enjoying a renaissance, appearing on dozens of pop hits and soundtracks—including the Beatles´ "Fixing a Hole," the Beach Boys´ "God Only Knows," "The Addams Family" TV theme and "The Odd Couple" film score. Reasons for using the fussy instrument by rock, pop and R&B producers varied. Some sought a novelty touch while others wanted to be in step with London´s colorful Edwardian fashion trend and the psychedelic scene that came with it. But the harpsichord´s ´60s

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor. I think the problem was that– that in dealing

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last.

WASHINGTON — Spring break was never this dull. First Lady Michelle Obama’s kids finally hit the wall on their whirlwind visit to China, showing signs they’ve nearly reached their limit tagging along with mom as she visits site after site on what’s billed as a “person-to-person” tour. Accompanied by Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, the first lady on Monday toured Xi’an, an ancient city in the ancestral province of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They inspected the city’s 600-year-old wall, a day after touring the Great Wall near Beijing. Photos show Sasha looking like she’d rather be back home with her pals than hitting the

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act. While the country remains divided over whether he acted like a traitor or a statesman, all would have to agree

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company
