State of the Union.

Talk about it here. The Supreme Court Justices: Roberts, Kennedy, Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan are all there. No Scalia, Thomas, or Alito.

1. Obama's voice seems strange. Here's the full text of the speech, by the way. You don't really need to sit through all of this.

2. "So let’s set party interests aside..."

3. "[D]eficit reduction alone is not an economic plan. A growing economy that creates good, middle-class jobs – that must be the North Star that guides our efforts."

4. "A year and a half ago, I put forward an American Jobs Act that independent economists said would create more than one million new jobs. I thank the last Congress for passing some of that agenda, and I urge this Congress to pass the rest." That gets a huge laugh from Biden, and we laugh a lot at Biden laughing so much.

5. "After shedding jobs for more than 10 years... " I say: "Shedding? Maybe we should go back to the dog show." (I've got the SOTU and the Westminster Dog Show recording on the DVR. We can go where we want. I love that Tibetan Mastiff!)

6. Climate change. "Heat waves, droughts, wildfires, and floods – all are now more frequent and intense. We can choose to believe that Superstorm Sandy, and the most severe drought in decades, and the worst wildfires some states have ever seen were all just a freak coincidence. Or we can choose to believe in the overwhelming judgment of science – and act before it’s too late." What?! What is the overwhelming judgment of science? He merely gave the impression of making an assertion. That's not the attitude of science.

7. "I’m also issuing a new goal for America: let’s cut in half the energy wasted by our homes and businesses over the next twenty years." There's a modest goal. Why not cut all waste?

8. "Today, the Senate passed the Violence Against Women Act that Joe Biden originally wrote almost 20 years ago." Closeup on Biden, who looks elderly.

9. We should do "more to encourage fatherhood – because what makes you a man isn’t the ability to conceive a child; it’s having the courage to raise one."

10. "And by the end of next year, our war in Afghanistan will be over."

11. Closeup on John Kerry. I say: "He looks different." Meade says he had plastic surgery.

12. "Overwhelming majorities of Americans – Americans who believe in the 2nd Amendment..." support all sorts of gun control. "[I]n the two months since Newtown, more than a thousand birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries have been stolen from our lives by a bullet from a gun."

13. "But we were never sent here to be perfect. We were sent here to make what difference we can, to secure this nation, expand opportunity, and uphold our ideals through the hard, often frustrating, but absolutely necessary work of self-government."

14. Biggest cheer of the night: a 102-year-old lady who waited in line 6 hours to vote.

15. Weirdly, there's no cheering at all after the description of the police officer at the Sikh temple shooting, Brian Murphy, who who kept fighting "even as he lay bleeding from twelve bullet wounds. When asked how he did that, Brian said, 'That’s just the way we’re made.'" That was the last anecdote of the night.

16. "Thank you, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America."

The stock market is fueled by one main thing: There is nowhere else to put money and have any hope of getting a return. They simply expect to get out in time if it goes bad, and in stocks you can get out quick.

Bank deposits are losing to inflation, and precious metals have already gotten dangerously high. It's the only option for fence sitters and people with money are all sitting on the fence waiting for the insanity to run it's course.

Good idea. Like Social Security. No COL increase last year; 1.2% this year. That truly will save money. And take the COL out of the check before anyone sees it and apply it to Obamacare. Like Social Security. Santa time.

AprilApple said...

Lets cut waste by handing millions of tax payer dollars to wealthy democrat donors who run faux green energy businesses.
Good thinking.

Joseph Aldy, Obama's in-house "economist", is almost as corrupt and crazy as Paul Krugman.
Aldy has no problem with tax payer loss. He claims it was worth it.

Even though...The federal clean-energy loan guarantee program that gave you Solyndra wasn’t just a multibillion-dollar political debacle – it also didn’t create jobs, didn’t reduce carbon emissions and ran up financial risk for taxpayers.

So is it all going to come crashing down on Obama's head or will our government limp on til after he leaves? How long will it take Obamacare to put the last nails in the coffin? Or will people/countries stop buying our bonds? Or will taxpayers stop paying taxes voluntarily? Will it be students who are already bailing on their student loans? How about when there is no longer a need for 80% of the workforce due to automation. Will the senate pass a budget? Will Obama propose a budget that gets even one vote out of either chamber? Did he even mention our insane spending levels? Will he take credit for the double digit inflation that is edited out of the "Core CPI?" Will Republicans grow a pair and get some principles? What are their principles?

This is all a big joke. I wonder how long it will take our government to reconstitute itself when it fails.

Man, I could watch her all night. Well, her mom knows that Abby is going throw a fit about her daughter dropping the hat, even though she's top of they pyramid, so the mom, in a scene of emotion and anguish removed her daughter from Abby's school, which apparently is a top competing school. And every time those little girls speak they make so much sense. It's like they're sitting right here speaking conversationally with such level heads on their little shoulders. And then they go up there on stage and bend their little bodies around and keep impeccable time to the music, they're so responsive to instruction. They're all beautiful. And their mums glow with pride and it's the pride that comes from hard work and commitment. And of course a lot of money. I'm completely drawn in to how well the women raise their daughters and their fierce loyalty to each other. My own mum was supportive, and I love her for that, but nothing at all like these women.

That's not to say that the local officials responsible for such inadequate voting facilities should not be out on their asses. But seriously, in a civilized society respect for your elders includes an understanding that waiting in line for hours is more of a burden for someone who is old and frail.

Peter said...

"I’m also issuing a new goal for America: let’s cut in half the energy wasted by our homes and businesses over the next twenty years."

Ann Althouse said, "There's a modest goal. Why not cut all waste"

If "waste" means any use of energy that is less than 100 percent efficient then the only way to eliminate waste would be to eliminate the use of energy.

To state the obvious(?), zero waste is a utopian goal, and utopia exists only in erewhon.


Of course, the other thing that's obvious is that when Obama talks about "we," he means government. To achieve this "goal," he'd have government tax energy use (or simply mandate efficiency), and then provide government subsidies to those who could no longer afford minimal comfort after the taxes (or mandates).

Because government knows best. As compared with the messiness of markets, doesn't central economic planning consistently produce superior economic results?
