The Bating Game:
Obama Doubles Down

American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 2/24/2013 3:49:57 AM

By law, on Friday the executive must begin to cut $85 billion from federal spending. Though, as is his wont, the president is blaming the Republicans for what he claims is a draconian measure. No less a Washington chronicler of events than Bob Woodward of the Washington Post considers that a gross distortion of the truth [T]he automatic spending cuts were initiated by the White House and were the brainchild of [Treasury Secretary nominee Jack] Lew and White House congressional relations chief Rob Nabors -- probably the foremost experts on budget issues in the senior ranks of the federal government.

Obama´s base isn´t even close to being satisfied with the fiscal cliff tax increases.A louyt 2-3% increase? No way. They want as much blood for rich people and evil corporations as they can get. Obama knows this and exploits those people for all they´re worth.

Obama was handed almost a trillion dollars in stimulus and the lofos barely saw a dime of it.What makes them think a $50 billion tax increase is going to trickle down to their wallets. The main beneficiaries of this insane stimulus are government unions who are a small part of the overall economy and doesn´t help the average schlub one iota.

The CEO of Whole Foods,Mackey,was on Hannity the other day bemoaning higher taxes and Obamacare saying they both hurt business. Whole Foods employs 75,000 people nationwide,who contribute umpteen dollars in taxes but that doesn´t count for the left,the owner should still pay through the nose,because "he has more money than he needs".

I think the short term capital gains rate should be a lot higher,If anybody´s making out like bandits today it´s stock flippers.

The old notion that investors in this country leads to economic growth and jobs is out the window under Obama. This has simply become a racket with insider trading being a big part of it.

If Bernake is going to use stimulus,it should be aimed at small business start ups instead of corrupt investors in the stock market who are making a killing but driving consumer prices up,hurting the "small guy".

Here´s something the gooooberment media seems to have forgotten. The bamboozler is singing to the choir...

They don´t "understand" any cliffs. Their eyes glazzzze over when you speak to them of numbers.....

So -- the media isn´t helping the bamster. Those of US who understand mathematics and never watch the alphabet news -- already know WHO´S to blame, i.e. the DC elite -- both demorats and pubbies.

Word nerd here to say that ´bating´ is a perfectly applicable descriptor in this situation.

It means to remove, reduce or deprive. The president is indeed playing a ´bating´ game.

Not to distract, but, bating could be correct. From the free online dictionary, "to lessen the force or intensity of, moderate".

Now to the point,Obie´s doubling down is more than just a political game at this point. He now sees the prospect of the great aftershock as becoming his legacy even amongst his sheep. Again, read Dave Wiedemer´s books for an instructive view of the gummint´s fiscal future.

I learned something new last week or so - I wish I could give credit to the source but it was a caller in to Rush - that Obama and his progressives believe in ´zero sum´ fiscal principles. A little web research brought me to a source that explains it this way:

For Obama, the economy is a zero-sum game. It’s a pie with only so many pieces–a pie that belongs ultimately to federal authority. It can therefore be seized and divided any way the government sees fit.
~http://thelibertyprofessor.com/tag/the-economy-is-not-a-zero-sum-game/

The radio show I first heard this, the person said zero sum accounting is where they believe there´s only so much money (in the country? world? sorry, don´t recall exactly), and that the more rich people have, the less poor people have access to. And that´s why they believe that redistribution is the only way to cure this defect of our society. All money therefore, should go to government, for more fair redistribution to those who don´t have ´their share´.

Honest to God, I´ve heard the term zero sum for a long time, never understanding until now what it means. But it fits the current regime perfectly - their philosophy, their governing principles and style, everything.

What we work for will be offset by somebody who doesn´t work as hard, to be ´fair.´

God help us.

#17, I heard Rush explain baseline budgeting years ago in a way that I have never forgotten the lesson. With his wide audience he could devote 1 or 2 hours a month maybe and give basic lessons/definitions to us economic lofos in a way that would help us to combat the wool pulling performed by government and the media a lot better.

Progressives confuse creating money with creating value.

Capitalists cause products and services to be created and profitable exchange to flourish. Wealth accumulation is a residual effect. The situation only becomes "Zero Sum" after the leftists have destroyed the means of production.

....and they are doing an excellent job of that.

#17 the dustbin of history is littered with socioeconomic models based on the zero-sum concept and those inevitably fail because they do not recognize one basic principle of human nature when it comes to economic issues. And that is that self-interest always trumps group interest. A capitalistic, market-based economy recognizes that indviduals making choices in their own self-interest is what drives the creation of wealth, and thereby benefits the largest number of people, if their political system safeguards individual liberty and allows them the freedom to make such choices. Zero-sum systems do not. So they impose political tyranny to restrain individuals from making those choices they deem in their best interests. To be honest, I don´t there has even been an example in history of a truly free economy, there has always been some shading of regulation and oversight which has led to varying degrees of mixed economies. But Western democracies have come the closest to it, and we have learned the hard way that the more economic freedom individuals have, the better off we all are from the viewpoint of economics and political liberty.

To explain #26´s excellent post in the same model as #17´s easy to remember think of the economy as rising yeast bread dough.
At the best rising point any amount needed to bake is pinched off and is replaced by the whole batch still rising. At times if the dough is punched down it will rise again if not destroyed.
The pie theory was around long before the zero folks figured the contained mess was for their elite consumption.

One of the most heartbreaking sights I ever witnessed was an old mangy dog that wandered into my property a few years ago. Over half of its hair was gone, and you could see literally thousands of ticks hanging on its body. The dog was barely able to walk, and I remember the look of pain and hopelessness on its face. Not knowing what diseases it was carrying, and wanting to keep my grandsons safe, I told them to go inside. I used a 22 rifle to mercifully dispatch the poor creature to oblivion. Then I burned the body, making sure that all the ticks perished in the flames.

The body politic now reminds me of that poor dog. The parasites are taking the last life blood from the walking corpse of the Republic. The individual ticks are unaware of their complicity in the demise of the host, but they will die in the flames with the rest of us. Shame on us all for allowing it to happen.

Calling a Spade a ´Garden Implement´

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran.

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood.

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs.

In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama. Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees,

Barack Obama´s Constant State

Contradicting the faultless, albeit far-fetched image he has of himself, Barack Obama is a man harassed by truth. That´s why, judging from his inability to accept personal responsibility, Barack Obama must be living in a constant state of agitated cognitive dissonance. The late Leon Festinger is the social psychologist who proposed the theory of cognitive dissonance. According to Festinger, until the person suffering with perceptual disharmony can find a way to justify wrong actions and decisions, it´s impossible to achieve a calm mental state, especially when those wrong actions and decisions challenge the way the cognitively dissonant individual sees himself.

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

A University of Virginia student arrested by Alcoholic Beverage Control agents who wrongly believed she´d illegally bought beer when in fact she only had bottled water is seeking $40 million in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. Elizabeth K. Daly, 21, alleges malicious prosecution, six counts of assault and battery and failure to appropriately train ABC agents in the suit which names the state and seven agents involved in her arrest. (Snip) Daly claimed she attempted to flee from the agents because neither were in uniform, one pulled a gun, and the other tried to smash her car window with a flashlight. ´My

Please, try not to let what I’m about to tell you destroy your faith in the integrity of the national Democratic Party. Right now, a crime wave is sweeping the nation, and everyone in this out-of-control mob has a D after their names, even if most of the media are loath to report it. If you are a low-information voter, a Globe subscriber, say, you have been told endlessly that the root of all evil in American politics is the Tea Party, better known in your moonbat media as “teabaggers.” Oddly, however, the hacks rounded up over the last few days, well,

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

With studies showing widening economic gaps between whites and African Americans, civil rights leaders in metro Detroit are concerned. “We’re going in the wrong direction,” said Freda Sampson, a leader with the nonprofit group Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion. “We’re getting further and further divided.” To help close that racial and class divide, her group is holding an all-day conference, called the Equity Action Summit, on Saturday at Cobo Center in Detroit. (Snip) Saturday’s conference, supported by the NAACP and Fair Housing Center of Metro Detroit, is to feature talks by President Barack Obama’s former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript.
