What Jon Stewart time are you in?
YOu are on an American energy board and are unaware what free markets just delivered in oil and natural gas?
Nor was it the big Progressive oil majors. It was the much smaller risk takers who developed and then 'perfected' the new technology. Actually it is an on going tech revolution. Just beginning.
So what again did Progressive Central Planning deliver for Americans? The forced mandate for filthy defective and completely corrupt corn ethanol?
Free Markets are not perfect. Which is why they need some regulation. Just enough to keep them free, fair, transparent and competitive.
Central planning has always failed due to constant human nature.
Which our Constitution in stunning simplicity harnesses and mutes. Nothing like it.
Why yes defective therefore illegal corn ethanol Opie,
BY sharply dividing America while showing his judgement and character weakness to the world, Obama has failed by orders of magnitude. The twin failures amplify each other.
The glad news is once Obama retires, the irrational feedback loop ends as well.
American has all we need for normal explosive economic recovery growth. I just love the Great Goolsbee of Chicago going on about V shape recoveries and banking system dislocation. But even the Great Goulsbee of Chicago understands by this time an even more powerful U shaped recovery should have taken hold. A straight up launch based on normal capacity utilization.
Reagan did not have energy independence and these incredible gains in digital age efficiency. What he did inherit was double digit inflation and interest rates.
So Obama retires and we do not lose our reason and elect Hillary, we are off to the economic American normal. The Great Goulsbee as he is, will get busy smithing new collectivist myths. We could not rush on the natural gas because we are not certain it is safe.
A brilliant mind is a terrible thing to waste on nothing but irrational politics.
"Obviously, the Chinese need growth. Obviously the Chinese engage in hostile (subsidized) mercantilism as did the Dutch, the British, the Spanish, the Portuguese and many other European colonial powers. What is your point? Economic Darwinism? Get used to it."
That is really ignorant. So human beings can not learn.
You are attempting to express is exactly the economic component of the American revolution. A grossly political and therefore unfair trade relationship with the British.
You are pretty amusing delude. Don't know your basic economics and clearly not your basic American history. Of course complete functional ignorance of any Econ 101 concept.
Every one understands why the Chinese central plan is a internal consumer driven economy. Because that is the only path to American level economic power. It is also what no country in Asia has achieved post WWII.
You are certainly a low level snark. The only thing left to be determined is how deep your functional ignorance reaches.
Make all the strange noise like Jon Stewart you wish. Actually picking up the econ 101 and history book is the only solution to your condition. Then likely you would behave in a more civilized manner. ;)
Interesting thing OPie of the completely defective therefore illegal corn ethanol.
What exactly is it about he Tea Party which gets your emotions flowing?
We traditional Americans have so many indisputable instances of corruption and lawless with Obama, Hillary, Pelosi and Read that all could not be listed in a single post.
What has the Tea Party done? ;)
Yea how is the Canadian oil counted?
So silly. If Obama had not abuse his power he does not have the authority to wield?
Natural gas exports would be higher. Europe and the world economy would be more secure. Co2 would be reduced.
Just because all variables can not be factored by human cognition, it does not mean we have no control over the variables. Nor which variables likely lead or 'empower' other beneficial variable.
SA reacted due to Obama's wanton geopolitical failures and the true change the world energy revolution delivered by American enterprise and private property. SA could change their police right now. It would be in their immediate economic interest to do so.
None of the major oil suppliers are stable Republics. Those with large populations can not sustain these prices. Only the amount of time is unknown.
Why Opie of the illegal corn ethanol mandate,
Man's ability to wield science and understand history requires objectivity. Objectivity requires individual honestly. Honesty arise from a value of personal virtue.
In the Progressive world there is no virtue so all are simply myths. Reality is something their backward existence cause them to believe they can will.
No one should be surprised the character deficient Progressive proves on a daily basis they do not have the capacity to wiled the tool of science or learn from human history.
Like corn ethanol mandate corruption, the radical Obama appointments at EPA, NASA IRS seek to dissemble and misinform citizens to will the Progressive 'reality'. So no one should be surprised the Germans have completely destabilized their power grid, triple electrical costs and increased co2 emissions.
It is the fruit of willful realpolitik as opposed to purposeful rationality.
So as Jon Stewart babbles on about Obama and hurt feelings, the Grand Imam has stood up. But the real soul searching in Islam has only just begun.
The depth of rationalization from Progressives like Obama remains as simplistic and nihilistic as the Quran re-ordering literalist mystics. This is all nothing more than a manifestation of liberation religion which if given stuff will be satisfied. Willfully ignorant and therefore primitive and therefore childishly naive.
The muslims re-ordering the Quran so their literal reading suits there agenda are at was. For them all war is deception. So no surprise the Israelis gave them cement to build and they instead built terror tunnels. So what reasoning person would believe given their ideology, material stuff to improve the economy will be fruitful? Obama and Jon Stewart do.
Warfare and social strife disrupt the economy. Therefore creates want rather than solve it.
We also know that individual empowerment like micro lending works. While collectivists big policy agendas have always failed.
We know real individual liberty based self representative government is growing with the Kurds and in North Africa. That the idea of rule of law and not men is a key element.
We also see the democracy of Turkey going backward. The President being a collectivists of Islamic bent.
No surprise the wonderful economic performance of the Turks receded with the rise of internal collectivism.
This is a struggle for the Imams. Their journey to Liberty may take different forms from our Judeo-Christian example. It certainly will not be the material nihilistic secular social contract of failing Europe. People granting each other stuff. Based mostly on the size of tantrum.
Certainly supporting a 'secular' dictator who makes nearly all the people equally poor was an idea which did not work. It was not a path to self representation based on the rule of law. Nor is the secular social contract of European sustainable therefore stable.
Stag the Corn Monster you would be an amusing board clown. Except you would say or do anything for corn ethanol corruption money. Including starving human beings.
Wish you would make a better choice. Wish you would strive for the potential to be fully human.
But you do not. A very sad sack.
Yea such is the lower existence.
So lets see. Bush is the devil. So Obama is justified in being the devil.
I would have to give this a Jon Stewart rating.
Actually that is not fair to Jon.
All the same. Oh no.
Nope. Plus the Sunni Tribal folks had tossed AlQ and ISIS out. Radio intercepts not send any more terrorist for they had been completely defeated.
Progressives really do need a time out. Enough of their failure by accident and force.
It has been frequently remarked that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country, by their conduct and example, to decide the important question, whether societies of men are really capable or not of establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever destined to depend for their political constitutions on accident and force. If there be any truth in the remark, the crisis at which we are arrived may with propriety be regarded as the era in which that decision is to be made; and a wrong election of the part we shall act may, in this view, deserve to be considered as the general misfortune of mankind.
In that sense Mr. Obama’s Keystone XL veto is a microcosm of his overall economic record: bonuses for billionaires, scraps for middle-class workers.
In the South where the are Enlightened Community leaders who happen to be black, they want these super clean brand new energy processing plants right next to their communities.
The Progressives tell these communities environmental justice. So they are free to located these plants next to their cronies.
Our Southern states are doing a great job of moving in high value added manufacturing plants.
Refugees from the German Global Warming delusion like BMW. Texas pulling Toyota out of California after generations.
Sadly our black ethnicity communities continue to support the 'social justice' party. Flooding their neighborhoods with bottomless poor people from around the world. Filling the entry level jobs and depressing wages.
Then no one is trying to get those economic anchors of high value added manufacturing anywhere near their communities. All that economic activity would bring pollution and that is racist!
What are inner city and coal communities need and should support are Republicans like Paul Ryan and Democrats like Honourbale Manchin.
Oh my goodness full tantrum! Go OLB go!
But it is amusing to have a willful ignorant who has demonstrated the condition for many years now, make such a statement. But it really does know no better.
The RFS Law requires at least a 20% reduction in green house gases compared to straight gasoline.
The reality is corn ethanol is deeply energy negative and dramatically increases green house gases. Plus the water pollution is so great the water supply to major American cities were tainted and shut off.
It is therefore completely illegal for Obama to continue to impose it by mandate.
Well because SA i manipulating the oil market to damage our oil producers. The longer term agenda is to manipulate oil prices higher than a free market would deliver and sustain over time. A healthy market responds to price. SA is playing with price in the short term.
The cost will be higher cost to American consumers and a continued dependence on an unstable Monarchy.
Funny thing. We should pay more for crony capitalist feeding frenzies of wind and solar. But not to mute the clear market manipulation of a foreign counties interest before the Americans.
Now Willie, rule of men rather than law is the problem.
Incompetent and corruption are some of the symptoms of Progressive Collectivism.
Poor Jon Stewart. He still doesn't understand the difference between logic animating a person and the dogma of it is all a material nihilist random events.
