There is certainly not a lack of articles for those interested...
Some very interesting account of monetary policy along with history. Most of the mainstream media, such as the history channel, covers just about everything minus the story regarding the monetary history.

The rise of a dictator like Napoleon and Hitler came up after a period of hyperinflation.

No, I'm not saying this is what the US will get for sure (a dictator), but its a possibility. I have no clue.

I would love to see Ron Paul in charge of the FED but not as President. I like what I have seen from Perry but I don't think we know enough about him yet.

So because someone supports him I shouldn't? That seems pretty stupid. Now if you had video of him being handed $50k and a kilo of coke I might reconsider (or attempt to get into his party). Any business in their right mind wants a pro business president. That being said there are a lot of businesses that have been forced over time to change from what they were founded in order to survive the environment our political theater has put them in.

I can see that you are a lover of truth. I must admit that via this rational discourse, I find your views extremely palatable. Do I dare say it? I do. You have caused me to reconsider and reject my once closely guarded views. I am now with you. Whose views do we now need to attack in a united fashion?

Um, pardon me, Fibb, but linking to Wikipedia, Democracy Now and The New Yorker isn't exactly going to be viewed by those on the right as "bringing your A game", sir.

No offense intended here, but pretty much everybody outside of MSNBC hosts thinks the Dominionist stuff is total crap.

Regarding Bachmann versus Romney or Perry: I much prefer to see a record of effective executive leadership to point to, but I think it's a hoot that the incumbent President, now that he has a record of two and a half years or so, loses to my favorite candidate in every poll.

Vote Generic Republican '12! ... his background is less of a mystery than the current incumbent! ... :-)

(Sorry, sorry, sorry ... I feel like I just farted in church)

Do you have to be spoon fed? The son of Francis Shaeffer spills in the Democracy Now interview on what that movement is about - Christian Dominion over America. Bachman is on record as finding Francis Shaeffer inspirational. Bachman is a product of this fringe group. Frank Shaeffer should know about what he speaks.

But you can hand wave the facts away if you want. So many people do.

FRANK SCHAEFFER: Well, when she was at Oral Roberts Law School, founded by someone called Herb Titus, who then went on and worked for Pat Robertson and the 700 Club and founded a law school for him, she was unwittingly being trained by one of my father’s closest disciples who had been at his ministry many times. And Herb Titus and my dad and people like Rousas Rushdoony and other founders of the Reconstructionist movement, or the Dominionists, because they want to take dominion over the earth, including American politics, really believe that the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights should be replaced by what they regard as biblical law.

So what people have to understand about Michele Bachmann, and that I talk about in my book Sex, Mom, and God, is that she doesn’t just come from the far right of evangelical politics. She comes from a fringe even of the fringe, which is the Reconstructionist, Dominionist movement, that honestly, in the best of all worlds, as far as they’re concerned, would replace American democracy with a theocracy on a Christian level that would mirror something like modern-day Iran after it fell to the Ayatollah Khomeini.

[snip] You have to understand, in the evangelical circle she comes from, there’s a whole movement called the Quiverfull movement, which is about having a full quiver of children, no birth control, lots of kids, five kids, 24 foster kids, whatever—homeschooling, train your kids at home, take them out of the public school system. She’s been in this movement for more than 20 years. And my father and people like Herb Titus and the other people who influenced her helped form that movement. In that movement, wifely submission is an Old Testament principle of absolute misogyny that puts the husband at the head of the house in the most traditional sense. And that’s what she’s been part of.

Now, with a wink and a nod to her own audience watching her on Fox Television, she’s basically saying this: "Look, you know that I know that you know that when I say "wifely submission," that’s the world I come from. However, we’re trying to win a national election here, so I’m going to soft-pedal this." And, of course, they’ll let her get away with this godly lie for the greater good, which is to insinuate herself into mainstream American politics as a radical anti-feminist coming from the far right fringe of even the evangelical movement. There are lots of evangelicals that don’t sign onto her view on so many issues, and this would be one of them. But for purpose of the election and thinking forward to maybe getting the nomination from the Republicans, she has to tell these well-rehearsed lies to somehow soft-pedal this extreme background she comes from.

[snip] ...the religious right that I was part of is fundamentally anti-American. They hate this country. They wrap themselves in the flag, but they hate America as it is: the America that embraces gay people, is multicultural, is a homogeneous society that seeks to incorporate all races and ethnic creeds into its culture. The America they love is the, quote, "Christian America" that they keep harping back to, that people like Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, George W. Bush, etc., all want to take us back to. But it’s an America that never existed and certainly doesn’t now. And I think it was just that sense of alienation from my own culture, my own time and place, that began a train of thought that, in the end, took me very, very far away, as I explain in Sex, Mom, and God and give the reasons for my departure there. But in a nutshell, it’s just I happen to not be an anti-American person.

And I think that really what people would have to begin to understand is that the language of the right, where they’ve talked about patriotism and the past and so forth, really turned against them would be appropriate, because it’s that basic lack of patriotism that does not like the laws of the country, so it tells people to revolt. This flirtation with secessionism that people like Rick Perry and Sarah Palin’s husband have played with, these sort of violent overtures saying, you know, "We would know what to do with the chairman of the Fed in Texas: we’d treat him rough" kind of stuff, you know, this is the language of people who are unpatriotic, essentially hate their country, want to defund the U.S. government completely, and in the best of all worlds, would literally overthrow our system of government.

I am glad you have finally seen the light! You have finally relinquished your naive belief that we should do what is best for the country! Fools must be led, we must have the power to lead them, to tell the sheep what to do.

We must do what's best for the party. We need to maintain our power. We must paint anyone who disagrees with us as unpatriotic, a partisan or self-righteous. It doesn't matter what they say, if they disagree with us they are wrong and we must say whatever is necessary to make them look like they are wrong. Truth is in the eye beholder, as long as you and I are the beholders.

Yes fibb why are you picking on Perry, who happens to have an excellent record as guvinor of Texas, yet you fail to talk about the abysmal record of obama? Why don't you display some of obama's accomplishments here so everyone can see what you are so proud of?

I feel as though Janet napalatano should be added to this picture list too. Since she used to be my guvinor I feel a little offended.

heres all you need to know about perry.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fRhb0awjAg

plus...

AMY GOODMAN: To discuss Rick Perry’s Texas past and already visible penchant for hard-edged campaigning, we’re joined by a reporter who’s covered Perry closely. Bob Moser is executive editor of The American Prospect. He’s the former editor at The Texas Observer, where he spent the last three years covering Rick Perry.

BOB MOSER: [snip] ....Rick Perry primarily is a corporatist. He has basically instituted Grover Norquist’s model of governance and government shrinking more completely than any governor in America, and thus has become a model for people like Scott Walker and John Kasich and Rick Scott. I think that, you know, above all, Rick Perry will say what he has to say to win a campaign, but when he’s governing, he governs for the rich. And that is the entire sum of his real ideology.

[snip] ...he has been—he has become a major campaign cash machine, and partly as the head of the Republican Governors Association. And, you know, I think that that is—that is the way that he has governed. He has appointed every—he has made every appointment in Texas. And just about every appointee has given him money. That is the way that he runs things. And that’s the way that—that’s what we can expect to see—

[snip] ....Bob Perry, who is the single-largest individual donor to right-wing causes around the country and has given Rick Perry about $20 million. Bob Perry is a huge home builder in Texas, and his primary interest has been in getting—in gutting regulations on businesses and environmental regulations, two things that Perry has been very happy to oblige with. And one of the others is Harold Simmons, a super-rich guy who is known as the "King of Superfund Sites" in America. He’s out of Dallas and recently—recently managed to open a huge radioactive waste disposal site in West Texas, and not only skirted what little state regulation there was in doing so, but also managed to get the county in which the site will be cited to pay for most of it. And Harold Simmons is known as one of the real evil geniuses of American capitalism. These are the kinds of people who have supported Rick Perry and the kinds of people who he has worked for in office, almost exclusively.

[snip] ...the "Texas Miracle" is something that Rick Perry has been campaigning on for quite a while. He has spent most of the last few years talking to Chamber of Commerce groups and Republican groups around the country and preaching about Texas job creation. He did inflate the numbers, but there’s no question that Texas has created more jobs in the last couple of years than any other state.

What is—what lies beneath those numbers, however, is the fact that Texas has also created many, many more minimum-wage jobs and low-wage jobs than any other state. The kinds of industry that Texas has attracted are companies that are coming to Texas because of low and almost nonexistent regulation and because of a huge population of people looking for work and willing to work for low wages. And, you know, that’s the truth that lies beneath this "miracle."

The other thing about it is that, you know, Rick Perry has stripped away successfully just about every strand of the social safety net in his 10 years as governor. And Texas education has been stripped to the bone. High school graduation rates are the lowest in the country. The rate of insurance is the lowest in the country. And, you know, it’s a miracle for companies who want to exploit their workers; it’s not a miracle for anybody else.

[snip] ...make no mistake, he is serious about states’ rights. If you read his book, Fed Up!, which was published last year, he is actually a states’ rights purist, to the point that even some conservatives will not like it. He says, for instance, that marijuana legalization in California is just fine on the principle of states’ rights, that gay marriage in other states is just fine on the principle of states’ rights. But, of course, what states’ rights amounts to for Rick Perry and for many conservatives is reducing the size and the scope of the federal government down to the size of something you can drown in a bathtub, as Grover Norquist has said.

[snip]
AMY GOODMAN: His comments about a black cloud over America?

BOB MOSER: Well, that is characteristic of, again, Rick Perry’s shooting off of the mouth. And it’s also characteristic of the fact that, very much like George W. Bush, he does know how to emit some dog whistles to people, some signals that he understands that people are uncomfortable with Barack Obama at a deeper level, because Barack Obama is black. And I think there’s no question that some of this has to do with Perry’s slips of the tongue, but some of it is entirely intentional. And I would not be surprised if this was intentional.

I guess I dont see the logic in voting for someone who maintains the norms (dem or rep mainstays)when quite clearly the norms are not working.
The GOP gave birth to the TEA party from a direct result of the growing tarnish on the heirloom quality tea and sugar serving set. They gave birth to a freiking Solid Diamond (Ron Paul) and now they are regretting it. WHY? it means less control for them. More control for the people. How can you be against such a shift in paradigms?

Well please dont be offended just because Janets not on. She was cut from the list because she actually has a pair of testicles. Apparently she is more of a man than Michelle Bachmanns husband. How long do you think it will be before he is caught smoking the baloney pony while doing meth?

David Horowitz: Obama 'Systematically Destroying Our Liberties'
Monday, 29 Aug 2011 12:01 PM
By Henry J. Reske and Ashley Martella

Share: More . . . A A | Email Us | Print | Forward Article

President Barack Obama is the most dangerous president of modern times, intent on turning the country into a second-rate power because “he basically despises America,” conservative activist and author David Horowitz tells Newsmax.TV.

Horowitz is the founder of the David Horowitz Freedom Center and Students for Academic Freedom. The author of the recent book, “A Point in Time: The Search for Redemption in This Life and the Next,” Horowitz said. “We are in a battle for the survival of this country.”

When he talks about the political left in America, Horowitz speaks from an experience most conservative experts lack. He was one of the founders of the New Left in the 1960s and an editor of its largest magazine, Ramparts. He co-wrote wrote “Destructive Generation,” a chronicle of his second thoughts about the 60s that has been compared to Whittaker Chambers’ classic “Witness” and other works documenting a break from extremism. Horowitz also detailed his odyssey from “red-diaper baby” to conservative activist in the memoir “Radical Son.”

“For me when I look at it I think the outcome is uncertain,” he said. “The left, what I will call the neo-communist left, is really the Democratic Party … the vision of that party is socialist, anti-capitalist, anti-individualist and it’s got us on a course that (is) already bankrupting our country.”

Story continues below.


Obama is a radical of his (Horowitz’s) generation and actually is a product of the worst part of the 1960s, he said. Obama was a close political ally of 1960s radical and later education professor Bill Ayers, who Horowitz knows very well given his own background as a former leader in the New Left.

“I don’t think Obama cares about this country and I think he is intent on bankrupting it and diminishing our military to the point where we are a second-rate power,” he said. “He is already the most dangerous president we’ve had in modern times.”

Horowitz charged that Obama has surrendered the Middle East to the Muslim Brotherhood.

“There will be a war there soon and he’s responsible and that’s because he basically despises America and wants us to lose in these global conflicts,” he said.

Horowitz also believes that American exceptionalism is in danger under Obama.

“We are a unique country,” he said. “The left under Obama is destroying that uniqueness. The Obamacare is not even a disguised plan to turn this into a socialist country and make everyone a dependent of the state. In history we are really unique where we have been a nation of individualists, distrustful of government, jealous of our liberty, and the Obamaites are systemically destroying our liberties.”

Horowitz said his most recent book, “A Point in Time: The Search for Redemption in This Life and the Next,” came about because he has “reached that point in life where you get to look back and see what it was.”

“I had a bout with prostate cancer about ten years ago and that focused me on my mortality,” he said. “A point in time refers to all of us that in the eye of eternity we’re not even an eye blink. We are all going to disappear and that presents us with what you might call an existential problem, which is does it all add up, is there any sense to all this. And that’s the question that the book addresses.”

The self-proclaimed agnostic said he chose to write about mortality because he “was slammed up against my own mortality. And when that happens you have to focus on it a bit . . . If you are to go about thinking every minute of every day that you’re going to disappear and be forgotten it would paralyze you.

“So we live inside stories that have no end. We say things like; I’ll never forget you, which is obviously a lie . . . You look to the future as though the future is going to remember this present. So that presents us all with a problem and we solve that problem in two different ways, which is the real heart of this book, how we solve that problem.”

Batshit crazy = this:

Hurricane Irene and last week’s East Coast earthquake are God’s way of telling Washington that the US government needs to cut spending, Michele Bachmann said Sunday.

“Obviously she was saying it in jest,” said Bachmann campaign spokeswoman Alice Stewart in a statement to reporters.

Yeah right. sure she was.

here's another quote:

Michelle Bachman wrote:

I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out under another, then under another Democrat president, Jimmy Carter. I'm not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it's an interesting coincidence.

that's using a dog whistle for her tribe.

No offense intended here, but pretty much everybody outside of MSNBC hosts thinks the Dominionist stuff is total crap.

Regarding Bachmann versus Romney or Perry: I much prefer to see a record of effective executive leadership to point to, but I think it's a hoot that the incumbent President, now that he has a record of two and a half years or so, loses to my favorite candidate in every poll.

Vote Generic Republican '12! ... his background is less of a mystery than the current incumbent! ... :-)

(Sorry, sorry, sorry ... I feel like I just farted in church)
Yes fibb why are you picking on Perry, who happens to have an excellent record as guvinor of Texas, yet you fail to talk about the abysmal record of obama? Why don't you display some of obama's accomplishments here so everyone can see what you are so proud of?

lol, "excellent"? he's a terrible governor.

here's some accomplishments:

Texas schools are consistently ranked near the bottom. every year. he thought it more important in the last lege session to cut $4billion from school funding than use some money in our "rainy day fund" which would cover it and refused to allow property tax hikes to cover it.

we may have decent unemployment figures, but we have the lowest coverage of healthcare in the nation. mainly because most of our job growth is in places like WalMart.

he tried to force young girls to have a genital wart (HPV) vaccine. I actually agreed because it would save thousands of lives (genital warts cause a very nasty form of cervical cancer), but he did it because he was paid by Merck, the maker of the vaccine.

he's one of the most corrupt governors not in Louisiana or Illinois. he takes a LOT of bribes and kickbacks.

he's an idiot, and actually makes W appear brilliant.

Of those listed that are not your opinion. A former Marxist, yes he freely admits this and draws from his unique experience from the inside on what they stand for. Unlike yourself supermark, he has seen the light and tries to make up for the damage he has done. Kinda like an alcoholic that tries to keep others from becoming one.

LOL supermark. He created 1 million jobs and you are saying they are all at walmart? Try again. The level of jobs he created is arguable but there is nothing to argue when it comes to what obama has created. How many jobs have been lost since obama took office? A zillion maybe? LOLOLOLOL
