Murder versus Suicide

Blogging for Liberty: Obama is not a stupid idiot (well, he is not an idiot).

Obama is not an idiot (as the term idiot refers to a person who has an IQ of 25 or lower).

Here’s a trick to help tell if a person fits into the category of idiot: Ask a question, and if your subject answers, then they are a moron at worst. If they don’t answer,  then you might be talking to an idiot.  Obama answers all his scripted questions, and skirts most of the unscripted ones (at least since his famous answer to Joe-the-plummer’s query); so, that rules out the term “idiot.”

Any child with an IQ of above 70 is considered “normal,” while those with scores above 130 are considered “gifted.” On the other hand, scores below 70 are defined as retarded.

In the past, those with IQs between 51 and 70 were called morons. Morons had adequate learning skills to complete menial tasks and communicate.

Imbeciles, with IQs between 26 and 50, never progressed past a mental age of about six.

And the lowest of all were the idiots, with IQ between 0 and 25, who were characterized by poor motor skills, extremely limited communication, and little response to stimulus.

The moron/imbecile/idiot classifications remained popular until the early 1970s.

“Mongolian idiot,” which in the 19th and early 20th centuries was an actual, literal diagnosis, derives from people’s belief that individuals with Down syndrome – with their wide set eyes and round faces – resembled Mongolians. In fact, before the British physician J.H.L. Down (1828 – 1896) lent his name to the chromosomal syndrome, Down syndrome was known merely as “mongolism.”

Stupidity is defined as a mentality which is considered to be informed, deliberate and maladaptive. Mental schemas, which help us adapt to our environment and process new ideas, can also, simultaneously, be maladaptive. A schema may be maladaptive to the extent that built-in biases compromise data so that perceptions will conform to expectations and desires. In addition,  behavior that is determined by the schema (which presumably was adaptive when formed) might become maladaptive as conditions change (you know, like spending trillions and still having an unemployment rate of 9.1% even when (1) A person who loses a 40 hour per week job, but works for one hour mowing a lawn for pay is classified as employed.  (2)  “Discouraged workers” who have lost a job, but do not make an effort to find a new job in a given week are NOT classified as unemployed or even as in the labor force).  Of course both possibilities mean that the announced unemployment rate is not nearly as high as the real unemployment rate, and so, the Obama Administration’s continued behavior is, by definition, stupid.

The historian Carlo Cipolla wrote several essays about human stupidity and suggested five fundamental laws of stupidity:

1.  Always and inevitably each of us underestimates the number of stupid individuals in circulation.

2.  The probability that a given person is stupid is independent of any other characteristic possessed by that person.

3.  A person is stupid if they cause damage to another person or group of people without experiencing personal gain, or even worse causing damage to themselves in the process.

4.  Non-stupid people always underestimate the harmful potential of stupid people; they constantly forget that at any time anywhere, and in any circumstance, dealing with or associating themselves with stupid individuals invariably constitutes a costly error.

5.  A stupid person is the most dangerous type of person there is.

Today the classification system is one category broader – moron, imbecile, and idiot have been replaced with mild, moderate, severe,and profound retardation – and diagnostic factors other than IQ are considered in making a diagnosis.

Obama is not an idiot; however, Obama is a socialist and wants to rid this country of capitalism that is not directed by a central government. He thinks this will help the people of the United States, and that makes him ignorant of the truth with thoughts and behaviors that are just pure stupidity.

Blogging for Liberty: SEIU and the BIG O

In 2010 President Barack Obama appointed Service Employees International Union (SEIU) President Andrew Stern to Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board, a new commission tasked with coming up with recommendations to help reduce the federal deficit.

Oh, don’t worry, he knows the President well! According to White House visitor logs released in November of 2010,  Stern visited the White House at least 22 times in 2009, making him the most frequent visitor during that year!

Stern will not feel alone either! Patrick Gaspard, a former vice president for politics and legislation for SEIU Local 1199, a giant New York health care workers union, who was named White House political director following Obama’s election will be in the White House

Barack and Patrick

Also, SEIU Treasurer Anna Burger, who was named to Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board, will be at the White House too!.

Anna and Barack

Of course the former SEIU associate general counsel Craig Becker, did not get appointed because his nomination to the National Labor Relations Board was blocked in the Senate. Becker has stated publicly representing illegal aliens is one of the core tasks of the SEIU. Yes,  he was so bad that Congress  (with the help of a couple of Democrats) blocked the appointment. So how did  Obama respond? By making Becker a recess appointment, that’s how. That means that he’ll serve on the board until the end of 2011. SEIU knows it’s good to own a President.

SEIU has invested heavily in politics. In 2008, it was the 7th largest campaign donor, with almost every penny of its contributions going to statist Democrats (sorry about the redundancy). In fact, Andrew Stern told a reporter for the Las Vegas Sun newspaper  in May 2009; “We (SEIU) spent a fortune to elect Barack Obama — $60.7 million to be exact — and we’re proud of it.”

By the way, who do you think stands to gain with the implementation of Obama Care? Can you say SEIU?

Blogging for Libberty: Statists and the National Socialist German Workers’ Party.

Statists and the National Socialist German Workers’ Party.

Statists, Socialist, communists, fascists, Democrats, and RINOs are unified under the rubric of “statist” as described a la Mark Levin. So, I will use the term “statist”  to refer to all of these people (who are ignorant about human history).

Everyone who pays attention has heard at least a statist or two in the Obama Administration belch about all the good intentions of Karl Marx, Lenin, Mao, or  Trotsky. Apropos, Marx is the guy who came up with the phrase, “The road to Hell is paved with good intentions,” and hell is what we are going to get if the people who think Jesus was a communist, George W. Bush is Hitler , and anyone who opposes the statist schemes of Obama is a Nazi are successful in re-electing Obama.

I am sure these ignorant statists don’t know that Nazi was an English acronym for the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, but I am equally sure that these same people, if confronted with this truth, would apply the same pathological dose of cognitive dissidence to it as they do all other facts that get in their way.

The plan for power in socialism relies primarily on a system of public economic planning for the entire economy coupled with “democratization” of industry where the workers control the industry. This would mean that “the collective” would own everything, and what the didn’t own they would tax. Hey, sounds like the big government Democrats and RINOs doesn’t it!

Blogging for Liberty: JPMorgan Chase

In 2008, JPMorgan Chase announced its $1.9 billion purchase of Washington Mutual’s banking operations.

The acquisition, which marks the biggest bank failure in the nation’s history, includes WaMu’s $307 billion in assets and $188 billion in deposits.

WaMu was the 13th bank to fail so far this year (2008). In March, JPMorgan Chase purchased investment bank Bear Stearns.

Following the acquisition of WaMu by JPMorganChase, Obama had this to say about James “Jamie” Dimon, CEO  and chairman of JP Morgan Chase handling of the real-estate crash, credit crisis, and the banking collapse:

President Barack Obama shakes hands with JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon

“You know, keep in mind, though there are a lot of banks that are actually pretty well managed, JPMorgan being a good example, Jamie Dimon, the CEO there, I don’t think should be punished for doing a pretty good job managing an enormous portfolio.”–Barack Obama

Dimon oversaw the transfer of $25 billion (25,000 million) from the US Treasury Department to JPMorgan Chase on October 28, 2008 via the Troubled Asset Relief Program  (TARP).

Dimon is a Democrat and became influential in the Obama Administration. Dimon was one of three CEO’s found to have had liberal access to Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner in the seven months after the financial crisis in fall 2008.

The Big O, Tim Geithner,  Jim Rohr (Chairman and CEO of PNC), and Jamie Dimon

Hey, nothing to see here! Move along.

Blogging for Liberty: Mary Landrieu and James “the Pimp” O’Keefe

“Louisiana Watergate”

In January, 2010, James O’Keefe,  and three other associates went into the New Orleans office of Senator Mary Landrieu wearing white hard harts, tool belts and flourescent vests and saying they needed to fix a problem with the phone system.

State Democrats quickly called the alleged plot a “Louisiana Watergate,” but federal officials have not yet said why the men wanted to interfere with Landrieu’s phones, whether they were successful, or even if the goal was political espionage.

Mary Landrieu was not answering her phone’s and Mr. O’Keefe “the “Pimp” was going to show on film that the published phone number to Mary Landrieu’s office is bogus; and they were going to show that if you dial the number, the phone in her office does not ring.  They did not attempt to bug her office or in any way disable her phone’s.

“The government has now confirmed what has always been clear:  No one tried to wiretap or bug Senator Landrieu’s office.”

Some weeks ago, Landrieu was quoted as saying that “Our lines have been jammed for weeks” when constituents complained that they could not get through to her office staff to note their opposition to Landrieu’s vote on healthcare reform.  “In investigating this matter, we decided to visit Senator Landrieu’s district office – the people’s office – to ask the staff if their phones were working,” O’Keefe said.

O’Keefe also states that the entire ordeal was videotaped and that he was “eager” for the government to allow the tape to be released.

Landrieu was criticized  for her vote on the Senate health care bill after securing a Medicaid provision estimated in value at up to $365 million for Louisiana. Conservatives accused her of selling her vote but she insisted no “special deals” were made (yeah, right).

Follow Up

In May, 2010, U.S. District Judge Stanwood Duval Jr.  ruled that the misdemeanor charges against the four men can be resolved before a magistrate instead of a judge.

Noriega 2011

General Manuel Noriega

Manuel Antonio Noriega Moreno, was the military dictator of Panama from 1983 to 1989.

 

The 1989 invasion of Panama by the United States removed him from power, he was captured, detained as a prisoner of war, and flown to the United States.

France was granted its extradition request in April 2010. He arrived in Paris on April 27, 2010, and after a re-trial as a condition of the extradition, he was found guilty and sentenced to seven years in jail in July 2010. France announced it will extradite him to Panama so he would face trial there for human rights violations after his sentence concludes (July 2017).
