    Liberal hate speech increasing

    Last week, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D.-Fla.) linked the Tea Party to the tragic Jan. 8, 2011, shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D.-Ariz.). This is just one example, unfortunately, in a long line of slanders from the far left.

    “I hesitate to place blame,” said Wasserman Schultz, Chair of the Democratic National Committee. “But I have noticed the tone take a very precipitous turn toward edginess and a lack of civility with the growth of the Tea Party movement.”

    Wasserman Schultz is not alone. Vice President Joe Biden has compared the Tea Party to terrorists, and David Axelrod, President Obama’s political henchman, has compared Newt Gingrich to a monkey. The Washington Post quoted an Obama campaign e-mail to supporters in October of last year claiming the Republican plan for job creation is to “suffocate the economy for the sake of what they think will be a political victory. ” The President has referred to Republicans as “hostage takers.”

    These statements are outrageous and are not part of a civil political discourse between the parties. Expect the left to use liberal hate speech as a means to distract the American people from the President’s failed big-government policies.
    Debt Limit Increase Votes

    This week, the House and Senate are expected to vote on an increase in the debt ceiling. Sen. Marco Rubio (R.-Fla.) sent a letter to the President, arguing that “America is becoming a deadbeat nation” because of the growing debt burden. The House and Senate votes will be an opportunity for members to go on the record whether they want President Obama to borrow another $1.2 trillion to pay past bills.

    Under the law that empowered the President to raise the debt ceiling, any member of the House or Senate can introduce a resolution of disapproval after the President requests an increase in borrowing authority to pay debts. If each chamber passes the resolution, the President is afforded the opportunity to veto the measure.

    It is expected that the Congress will not have the votes to block an increase in the debt ceiling. Yet this will be a great opportunity to focus public attention on the fact that the federal government needs to shrink spending and the debt is already too big.

    OK. Now here we go. Everything Democrats say is hate speech. You really are off your rocker.

    Take a break. Get control of your anger and hatred toward everything Democratic and have a drink. Your going to
    make yourself look even more extreme than when you claimed that President Obama was a Marxist (and Un-American, and
    a Chinese stalking horse, and a North Korean spy, and Muslim and......).

    Have a great day silly.

    YOU REALLY NEED something cause you have literally gone off the deep edge. Every now and then you show your
    true stripes. Always entertaining.

    I hope you are a better coach then you are a judge of economic theory. lol. Peter schiff will not teach you how to play center but he sure knows something about playing right wing.

    I actually played right wing on my soccer team. What a pisser.

    Why Liberals Hate America


    Ron Marr / Troutwrapper -- In Bruce Springsteen's tune "Glory Days," The Boss weaves the tale of a guy whom we all know. He sings of a middle-aged fellow whose life peaked as a high school sports hero. The former jock's evenings are now spent at the local bar, regaling all with stories of his brief success and synthetic heroics.
    Such describes perfectly the liberal philosophy generally, and Tom Daschle particularly.

    Liberals suffer from a number of maladies and delusions, but several are painfully obvious. First, not only are they incapable of taking care of themselves, they cannot comprehend why they should be FORCED to take care of themselves. They are terrified of everything that is not pre-processed, homogenized and approved by an official governmental entity. "Governmental Entity," by the way, is defined as Martin Sheen, a guy who's not the President but plays one on TV.

    That the recycling truck might be an hour late propels liberals into a state of near hysteria. That someone might actually own a gun sends them running to the therapist for Prozac, grief-counseling and Deepak Chopra seminars. They seek order, safety and security at any cost, rather than individuality, liberty and freedom.

    The goals of a totalitarian, Fascist state are reflected in the ramblings of liberal politicians and Hollywood idiots. They say they want peace, but the sort of peace they seek is more akin to slavery then it is the ideals upon which America was founded.

    Following the "Glory Days" scenario, liberals are bitter, angry and dogmatic. They cannot believe they lost the 2000 and 2002 elections. They feel the conservative ascendancy is an anomaly, and wax nostalgic over the administration of a lecherous sociopath who offered soothing words but never a vestige of reality, substance or results. They yearn for a choreographed fantasy world which disputes human nature. They swoon at the idea of standing on the side of the hill while reciting poetry with talking raccoons and drinking decaffeinated Coke.

    Liberals want to play happily in a field of daisies, unable to accept that we live in a time of daisy cutters. True, if their desires were the rule of the land they would get their wish. Our enemies would gladly provide that field of daisies, and make certain every single American - liberal or conservative - was pushing them up.

    The garden variety leftist attacks our country with every breath, oblivious to the fact that their ability to speak out, to acquire their toys, to travel and protest and whine, are provided by the very system they despise. They know only hate for those who disagree with their Utopian vision of unchecked liberalism. They immediately label as racists any who counter their nonsensical ramblings with the logic of protecting our sovereignty and future. They want but one thing...for their fellow travelers to control Congress and the White House.

    The personification of this ideology is Tom Daschle. Shortly after the President gave Saddam Hussein his ultimatum, the diminutive Daschle donned his elevator shoes, climbed a tall stepladder and stood on his soapbox. "I am saddened that this president failed so miserably at diplomacy that we're now forced to war," said Senator Shortcake. "I'm saddened that we have to give up one life because this president couldn't create the kind of diplomatic effort that was so critical for our country."

    I can be clever tooooo. lol

    How will Peter Schiff and the Austrian school of economics predictions do this year?
    Last year they did pretty badly. Wonder if SiriuslyWrong and Ron Paul will still praise and
    defend him?

    http://coolspot7.wordpress.com/2011/...ce-in-a-while/



    Well, let’s go back in time and see how good his prediction was for 2011:

    US dollar demise: Schiff does not see much safety in the US dollar. Schiff says it is not just a dollar collapse, it is a bond collapse too; "avoid any kind of long term bonds, avoid treasuries, and avoid municipal bonds."
    The year is not over yet, there is still one more trading day so this can change, but in 2011 the US dollar is up 1.85%, basically flat. No collapse in the dollar like what Schiff predicted.

    The 3-year Treasury bond fund (SHY) is up 0.56% (basically flat), 10-year Treasury bond fund (IEF) is up 12%, and the 20-year Treasury bond fund (TLT) is up 28%. No collapse in treasuries like what Schiff predicted.

    I looked up three municipal bond ETFs (PZA, MUNI, MUB) and they are up 8%, 5%, and 10%. No collapse in municipal bonds like what Schiff predicted.

    I looked up one long term bond ETFs (BLV) and it is up 16%. No collapse in long term bonds like what Schiff predicted.

    Indeed, every bond fund I checked was up big this year (and everyone one I wasn’t invested in was up more than mine). Quite simply, what Schiff predicted would occur this year did not occur.

    Buy emerging markets and foreign currencies. Schiff is focusing on Asia where people work hard, are producing and have savings.
    The emerging market funds (VWO, EEM) were down 20% this year.

    For currencies:

    Japanese Yen: +4%
    Australian Dollar: –0.9%
    Swiss Franc: –1%
    Canadian Dollar: –2%
    Swedish Krona: –3.06%
    Euro: –3%
    Chinese Yuan: –1%
    Mexican Peso: –11%
    New Zealand Dollar: –10%
    Russian Ruble: –4%
    US Dollar: +1.85%

    How did the US dollar do against some other currencies directly?
    vs Singapore Dollar: +1.48%
    vs Hong Kong Dollar: –0.03%
    vs South African Rand: +25%

    Looks like the US dollar did very well this year and held its own against almost everyone, contrary to what Schiff said. Emerging markets also did poorly, contrary to what Schiff said.

    Buy precious metals and commodities. Stay with gold, stay with silver.
    Gold is up +9% this year, so he got this one right. However, silver is down –10% this year. Copper is down 42%, Aluminum is down 45% and platinum is down 25%. If you were lucky enough to buy a precious metal ETF, you could have made some money but not very much, maybe 3%.

    What about other commodities? The general commodities ETFs (GSG, MOO, DBA) are down 3%, 20% and 11%.

    The fact is that commodities did not do very well this year, contrary to Schiff’s advice.

    If you would have listened to Peter Schiff this year, you wouldn’t have done very well in the market. You would have underperformed it. Everything he recommended was either flat (currencies), down big (emerging markets) or straight up wrong (collapse in dollar, treasuries and bonds). He was right on gold but wrong on silver – and every other metal. That’s 1 out of 7.

    Now, you can argue (as Schiff does) that gold is a long term investment and long term, everything he is saying will turn out to be correct. Maybe. But for now, his prognostications are no more correct than anyone else’s.

    He did say, after all, that this was his outlook for 2011.

    What is so clever about that. It's old and unoriginal. You need to try harder.

    Google "conservative hyprocracy" or something like that....

    Or "why capitalism is bad for Americans"....
