Ineptocracy

(in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

    Federal regulators have discovered that hundreds of millions of dollars in customer money has gone missing from MF Global in recent days, prompting an investigation into the brokerage firm, which is run by Jon S. Corzine, the former New Jersey governor, several people briefed on the matter said on Monday.

      He was exercising his constitutional rights…uh, the right to assembly and grievance speech is only in the peaceable manner. Once one attempts to incite a riot, his rights are cancelled. Break the law the rights are null and void for you! And ol’ what’s her name who likes to lecture groups on how to cause a crisis should have her butt sitting in prison.

        This story makes me spitting mad, Sherry. This person used his service to instigate and rile people up. I have been told by a reliable source but not yet been able to double verify that he was given a dishonorable discharge from the Corps.

        His sole intent was to cause more trouble.

        He had been instructed to leave. He stayed.

        He got what he deserved

    Maybe more importantly, so much for critical thinking as these folks in the movement continue to revere a man who based on his wealth should be their enemy.

      Submitted by greggy on Tue, 11/01/2011 – 3:37am.

      “It’s important, because you’ve been railing against capitalist ideas…”

      Moore (with totally disingenuous incredulity): “How can I be part of the one percent? No – I’m not.”

      Morgan: “You are..”

      Moore (avoidantly, evasively): “Well, if you believe that about me, then that’s really something, isn’t it?”

      Moore has been EXPOSED for the FRAUD that he is..

      He ran away from that blogger because he’s been exposed and can’t withstand the scrutiny. Take one look at Michael Moore and ask yourself whether he’s the right posterboy for a movement demanding that the rich “tighten their belts”. The man is a posterboy, all right – for gluttony, for “conspicuous consumption”.

      It has long been known that the Obama Regime made a deal with the Sineloa drug cartel, offering this gang of murderous drug dealers free reign to operate throughout the United States in return for assistance in the breaking of other Mexican drug gangs.

      And Issa had the fortitude to put this fact before the American people by accusing the Attorney General of direct complicity in the deaths of hundreds of innocent people in Mexico and the US.

    Michael Moore tells CNN’s Anderson Cooper that capitalism as we know it is over. Moore say capitalism is where “the problem” is. Moore was broadcasting from “Occupy Oakland.”

    “So, let’s not use the old definition where we think — when we say capitalism, we’re talking about 2011. 2011 capitalism is an evil system set up to benefit the few at the expense of the many. That’s what happened, and that’s what people are tired of. Which is too bad for the capitalists because I think a lot of people, perhaps in this crowd, probably used to support the ‘old-style’ of capitalism,” Moore said on CNN.

      After accusing Herman Cain of having “moments of minstrelsy” to appease white conservatives, Toure then praises Obama. Toure claims that Obama, someone who he says is intellectual and brilliant, paved the way for a Herman Cain, and without a black Alpha like Obama there would be no Herman Cain.

        “But I think that Cain, interestingly, does not exist without Obama preceding him. He sort of writes the ship in a lot of people’s minds or writes the scales. Because Obama is Alpha. He is brilliant. He’s a man you had to take seriously, you know. He’s a Constitutional law professor that you had to take seriously when he spoke,” Toure said.

        prove it – I have seen no documentation to prove his brilliance and if we are to rely on his spoken word then your argument is a wash

    This is the generation whose ignorance passes for knowledge; these are the protesters whose selfishness is thinly disguised as sincerity. This is the generation where the self supplants the spirit. Of all the crises America faces, the Occupy Wall Street movement proves that our greatest plight is spiritual. We are daily witnesses to the rants of young people who have no concept of the human soul.

    Here’s what Biden had to say: “Once your facility opens, there will be about 1,000 permanent new jobs here at Solyndra and in the surrounding business community, and hundreds more to install your solar panels around this country. It’s important. It’s important because these are permanent jobs.”

    Faster than a speeding bullet train, the cost of the state’s massive high-speed rail project has zoomed to nearly $100 billion — triple the estimate given to voters and more than enough to run the entire state government for a year.

    What’s more, bullet trains won’t be up and running until at least 2033, much later than the original estimate of 2020, although that depends on the state finding the remaining 90 percent of the funds needed to complete the plan.

    Do any thinking readers in the audience, who have maybe had an inkling of Sowell somewhere, doubt that the lion’s share of the problem is the government itself? Does anyone doubt that further government queering of the market via executive order will only worsen the problem?

    The only question in my mind about this whether these people in the administration are stupid, or diabolical. In either case, the only remedy is a free market enema.

    Unlike Internet news outlets such as WND, the liberal, so-called “mainstream media” does not report the truth – the unvarnished truth. In fact, if the liberal media can’t get the story to fit its liberal template, it simply does not get reported. What tea party march on Washington? Journalistic integrity or ethics are impediments to their worldview and their agenda.

    Marxist Says OWS Is Not 99% vs. 1%, But A Group Which Thought It Was Entitled To Be Part of the 1% Now Disappointed To Find Out It’s Not

    Wow, this damn Marxist has an interesting point!

    And so does the man quoted by Rod Dreher.

    (Ba-dum-dum.)

    In social theory, OWS is best understood not as a populist movement against the bankers, but instead as the breakdown of the New Class into its two increasingly disconnected parts. The upper tier, the bankers-government bankers-super credentialed elites. But also the lower tier, those who saw themselves entitled to a white collar job in the Virtue Industries of government and non-profits — the helping professions, the culture industry, the virtueocracies, the industries of therapeutic social control, as Christopher Lasch pointed out in his final book, The Revolt of the Elites.

    That’s very canny, and it explains why the OWS is so anti-homeless, and calls the homeless “posers:” Because this isn’t about the downtrodden, or the true underclass at all. It’s about people who thought that a college degree in nonsense was a guaranteed ticket to the upper class (or just below it — the upper middle class, “merely” $200,000 per year in salary but a great job with plenty of nonpecuniary benefits to make up for that paltry salary), and now find out, no, not so much.

    Your colleges, your professors… they lied to you.

    There’s also another schism: Those who don’t want to be raped versus those who wish to rape.

    AWAKEN

    One man awake,
    Awakens another.
    The second awakens
    His next door brother.
    The three awake can rouse a town
    By turning
    the whole place
    Upside down

    The many awake
    Can cause such a fuss
    It finally awakens the rest of us.
    One man up,
    With dawn in his eyes
    Surely then
    Multiplies

    The beleaguered president has recruited former Goldman Sachs head honcho Jon Corzine to shore up re-election funds from the banking industry, which is furious over Obama’s financial regulations.

    Corzine, the former governor of New Jersey who was blasted out of office by Republican Chris Christie in 2009, has attended secret meetings with the president and has been working on Obama’s 2012 campaign for months, The Post has learned.

    A voluntary division of labor is a compact. Everyone does what they do best and everyone wins. That compact only works if the civic framework that keeps it viable and voluntary survives. That framework is on its last legs. President Obama’s government wants to tell you who can provide your healthcare, where companies can locate their plants, how property owners can use their land and how much you can earn before the government confiscates most of your income. How far a stretch would it be for them to decide what job you are best qualified for and then streamline (or steamroll) you into it?

    The video above points out that there is a fundamental irreconcilable difference between conservatives and ‘liberals’ (aka the left, communists, fascists, socialist) regarding the Constitution for the United States. The ‘liberals’ believe the Constitution is flawed and is a living document that changes with the time and according to popular vote democracy. Conservatives believe the Constitution is the law which can only be amended pursuant to the national dialogue called for in Article V.

    Top Obama bundler George Kaiser made multiple visits to the White House in the months before the company was granted a $535 million loan from the government. And top Solyndra officials also made numerous visits — 20 — to the White House, according to logs and reporting by The Daily Caller. Solyndra officials in the logs included chairman and founder Christian Gronet and board members Thomas Baruch and David Prend. The company secured the $535 million loan despite the fact that it was widely known Solyndra was in deep economic trouble and had negative cash flows since its inception.

      Government-controlled mortgage giantFreddie Mac has requested $6 billion in additional aid after posting a wider loss in the third quarter.

      Freddie Mac said Thursday that it lost $6 billion, or $1.86 per share, in the July-September quarter. That compares with a loss of $4.1 billion, or $1.25 a share, in the same quarter of 2010.

      This quarter’s $6 billion request from taxpayers is the largest since April 2010.

    Barack Obama and his apologists continuously claim that he inherited the worst economy since the Great Depression and that if it were not for his policies presently in place, matters would be far worse. The reality is that he did not inherit the worst economy since the 1930s, and his policies have diminished the standard of living for the majority of Americans.
