  • California’s Scrambled Eggs
    The state’s new chicken-coop law is hitting human beings hard.

    Egg prices are soaring in California, where the USDA says the average price for a dozen jumbo eggs is $3.16, up from $1.18 a dozen a year ago, and in some parts of the state it’s more than $5. The Iowa State University Egg Industry Center says retail egg prices in California are 66% higher than in other parts of the West. National wholesale egg prices also climbed nearly 35% over the 2014 holiday period, before retreating.

    Progressive for the little guy? With over 20%+ of all Californians in poverty, more than any other state, this type of regulation should be done in a mature responsible way. Instead we get rich white Progressives doing their thing.

    Now actually I agree we need to improve the conditions of animals in intensive agriculture. But we also have to be mindful of how these things hurt wage earning Americans.

    NO question this could have been done responsibly. BUt responsible is the one thing Progressives never are.
    Which is exactly the only reason the naturally richest state in American has the most poor people.

    Oh and a big increase in the gasoline tax was added too. Wonderful.

    Check every 'recovery' of the last 70 years. The only thing comparable is FDR and the new deal.
    The closest equivalent to unemployment measure then is the u6.

    This whole silly thing about WW!! creating demand. Actually WWII destroyed years of economic output while pent up real consumer demand.

    It was the ability of the American economy to smoothly transition from wartime to peace time which unleashed the economic miracle of the 1950s. That was because American industry was already making post war plans by 1944 when it was clear the good guys were going to win.

    BUt back then the Supreme Court often stood up to FDR and said no. Democrats had enough character to say no to packing the court.

    Unfortunately our Supreme Court with Roberts did back flips to let Obamacare through. Putting the administrations argument back on its ear that this was a tax. Given the slow motion implosion America would have been much better served if Roberts blocked it and said bring it back as clearly the tax, which it is.

    Rather than allowing Progressive Grubering to work. Roberts should have put it back in the public sqaure with clear light. See if the Progressives could still get it through - even with every ugly political trick and process abuse.

    ABout the last time I watched Cramer he was going on about how the FDR economy slid back into recession when deficit spending was curtailed. That is all fine and dandy in a Progressive bottle.

    Truth rediscovered by WWII was the American economy had far more potential than any other economy in the world. Government needed to get out of the way and encourage growth rather than a New collectivist deal.
    FDR did have the good judgement to get out of the former GM CEOs way when it came to pre-war planning.

    Why defective Corn ethanol and therefore completely illegal mandate Opie,

    Freedom of speech has nothing to do with superiority or elite. Even Socrates figured out he was wise on because he knew nothing. Not even the Theist God his reason took him too.

    What the OLB is 'presenting' is childishly but none the less carefully crafted alternative reality of the 'elite' progressive propaganda press.

    Even if Willie or any other OLB persona had enough self respect to study and offer an informed opinion, they would not. They want the alternative reality of Progressive moonglow and sparkle dust. Which is why they never debate a point but go right into the mythology of the collective.

    What I am witnessing from the Progressive collective is any attachment to reality. The mission is winning the realpolitik game rather than governing. What we are getting is this last place economic record still being supported by emergency and therefore unstable monetary policy is magical. Although that is required to make the fantasy real is straight forward redistribution.

    Which is why Progressive never do adjust their family income figures for the truly massive redistribution occurring. Nor do they admit when unemployment length is reduced, unemployment falls. But that exposures just how bad Obama jobs are.

    Remember Free Speech is not about emotions. It is about the 'manly' pursuit of truth. We strive to handle the truth.

    The OLB dodging at clearly great strain is avoiding truth. It is about winning at any cost. Childish things never put away. Like your moniker in fact.

    Yes this is the Progressive moonglow and sparkle dust way of emotionally handling events.

    I assure you all of our 'allies' in core Sunni OPEC see Irans as the axis of evil. Given Iran is responsible for 30%+ of all American casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan, reasoning Americans agree to the point.

    The protests began the night of 12 June 2009, following the announcement that incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had won nearly 60 percent despite several reported irregularities. However, all three opposition candidates claimed that the votes were manipulated and the election was rigged, and candidates Mohsen Rezaee and Mousavi have lodged official complaints. Mousavi announced that he "won't surrender to this manipulation" before lodging an official appeal against the result to the Guardian Council on 14 June.

    There is that nagging question of legitimacy.

    Then there is the problem of a messianic theocracy armed with deliverable nuclear war heads. It probably can not be stopped now with Obama having two years to go.

    Our ICBM defense systems - Yea Reagan right on the vision and American spirit thing Progressives all wrong shock - have not been real world tested. But our technology in Iron Dome was beyond even my wildest hopes.

    Look brave and honourable Dr. Jasser the American Patriot is correct. Our example is government instituted to secure God's gifts of which is the Blessing Liberty in our Constitution. That ordained Foundation. Of course in such a society the rule of law protects Liberty from Progressive majority emotion rules demands 'democracy'. Majority rule is not a force of ethical law.

    How about explaining how Obama ignored the Green Revolution in Iran while supporting the collectivist Muslim brotherhood in Egypt?

    Certainly the Europeans are not willing to risk life or even their latte's for secular rights to be libertine and run on freedom of expression unchecked by cultural maturity.

    Liberty however is something very different.

  • norrishappy norrishappy 16 hours ago Flag

    Something like that is very likely as 'asset' purchases. The nasty thing in all this is that the European banks due to the complexity and incompleteness of the EU system are tied to this.

    This current strain of Progressive collectivism ignores the danger of moral hazard at all levels. It pretends individual and cultural virtue are antiquated concepts addressed by the science of the elite.

    Just ask the Great goolsbee of Chicago. The problem is not one of human nature and moral hazard in economics, it is simply not letting the Progressive political elite spend enough money.

    At some level Austin does seek the good and knows better. Hopefully he gets their sooner rather than later.
    Such a clearly powerful intellect should have a productive purpose. Covering up Obama's last place economic results is not a productive purpose. A face saving yes we should have added this and that is fine.

    India and Pakistan have more nuclear war heads than they need with delivery systems.

    Storage of nuclear wast is not a science of technology issue but a political one.
    So it sits in cooling pools when there is no reason it should. Basically it is Progressive gambling with human lives so they can say see told you so when an industrial accident or natural event occurs.

    The most interesting thing about Chernobyl? How quickly and stunning completely the full natural order re-established itself. HOw little even the glowing hot little mice like creatures are impacted.

    clear ceramics, ceramic materials employed in the generation of nuclear power and in the disposal of radioactive nuclear wastes.

    Yes just pay the the $65 for EB.

    In their nuclear-related functions, ceramics are of major importance. Since the beginning of nuclear power generation, oxide ceramics, based on the fissionable metals uranium and plutonium, have been made into highly reliable fuel pellets for both water-cooled and liquid-metal-cooled reactors. Ceramics also can be employed to immobilize and store nuclear wastes. Although vitrification (glass formation) is a favoured approach for waste disposal, wastes can be processed with other ceramics into a synthetic rock, or synroc, or they can be mixed with cement powder to make hardened cements. All these nuclear applications are extremely demanding. In addition to severe thermal and chemical driving forces, nuclear ceramics are continuously subjected to high radiation doses.

  • Dude just gave up and sold his position in MCD. Which often means it is going straight up.

    Dude bought at $86 and sold at $89. Reality is the markets were off to the races in that time. So the loss is actually very large.

    My hispanic wage earning friends like the calorie killer Double Western Cheese Burgers. Six Dollar burgers. Jacks Double Cheese burger. They also are pragmatic and happily use coupons. They also happily go for the $1.50 Costco hot dog. WOuld like hot sauce added to the now very old school pickle, mustard, onion and ketchup dressing.

    Pickle and pickle taste not liked. They work hard too. So two 1,100 calorie burgers is necessary not a Progressive health issue.

    On the college side, the kids are driving miles to get a HooDads? or whatever for the experience. Clearly my daughter should be paying for more gas. ;). Truth is it is not possible to get better quality at the price than In and Out. But their business strategy is such the lines are to long at lunch time for the wage earning Americans.

    McD tried to keep all the niches. Did pretty well for a very long time. But I am afraid they are going to have to retrench. As happens in time the competition has successfully segmented the market.

    Really with the lower gasoline prices all the Obama/Progressive policies could not stop, affordable convenience food should not be having negative comps. I am sure they will figure it out. BUt the theory was a rising tide of disposable income would given them relief on comps.

    BUt heck as Dude sold and the rising tide as Obama's approaches retirement may mean folks dash into McDs for a treat or munchie. The key might well be automation enabling delivery of a wide selection at a lower price and quick turn. That and demonstrating it is high quality ingredients which is a great strategy. But not the only necessary response and change.

    Rising fuel standards? For the domestic market India is going for simple and affordable. A car version of the world changing Cub motorcycle.

    Ah Bloomberg! Yea that is the ticket go to the echo chamber.

    Hydrogen fuel cell is compatible with natural gas reformation and nuclear energy. Generating electricity at peak times and 'switching' to hydrogen at night. Even the low variable cost of nuclear goes well with natural gas reformation.

    The question of alternative is one of what to import. Unless of course the major investment in mining undersea methane ices proves out. Interesting Bloomberg completely omitted it. Now why would they do that?

    So clearly what you are offering as a trust worthy source is not logical. Pieces are clearly missing and a reasoning person noticed.

    Now abe's big problem with replacing the nuclear? Most of the cost is in construction. Once it is up and running it costs about 2 US cents to generate electricity.

    CAFE or mileage standards have been the most absurd and failed Progressive policy ever. Higher mpg combined with dramatically increasing durability reducedthe cost per mile, lowered the cost per mile. So until the laying waste of American family incomes by Obama policies - high food and energy prices in major part accomplished by the illegal corn ethanol mandates - Americans not only drove more miles but demanded bigger cars. So per Econ 101 projection and real world measured results, CAFE resulted in greater not reduced oil demand.

    Energy demand is going to explode this century. America and therefore the world's first big economic break will be Obama's retirement. Asian elite by the 'mob' political will must deliver affordable energy for economic growth and improving living standards.

    Unlike Progressives, Asian leaders are not going to proclaim alternative energy the winner. Like responsible people they are going to maintain a diversified fleet of sources and generation. So they are prepared for the future. Not willing it

    Oh Willie, that is why without bothering to tell Obama, Egypt and other sovereign state Air forces bombed the 'terrorist'. Got this from AllJazie or just made it up yourself?

    Clearly you have not noticed that Iran's clients are racking up major geopolitical victories. The fall of the American client in Yemen being the most devastating.

    It is also a loss of face for the Saudi Royal family. While the Caliphates in Fertile Crescent and Africa. Young men from around the world, which means many tribes, are flocking to join.

    The Sunni Islam of Afghanistan was far different than what the Taliban imposed. Afghans love music. Their stern and ernst code of honour included the example of their Prophet and prayers to God, most merciful.

    Now what we have is not tribal opportunism. Although some surely exists in Libya. But the real world experience is these movements are far more sweeping than even local tribalism. So far the Iraq Sunni tribes and leadership have been completely subsumed.

    What we have is the ascendancy of Sunni and Shi'a Messianic world domination form of religion. That it is the duty of the Muslim to act for God to trigger end times in fire and blood. Further many of the leaders and administrates are very highly educated.

    As a side note for your education. Literal Bible readers understand God is Sovereign and rules by His time. Puny men who assume to leverage God to the end times, are the height of hubris.

    Literal Bible reads also have clear explanation of the nature of God's Liberty in many passages. Paul being very clear.

    Oh Goodness

    At least with Reid off to the side, there is a chance America will once again reclaim the billions upon billions already invested in Yucca mountain. The barrier to science and responsible stewardship is of course Progressive emotionalism. - Japan is restarting reactors as until or unless their underwater methane ice development hits commercial scale, they really do not have options.

    Oil is not used for electrical generation as it is simply cost prohibitive. Exceptions like Hawaii or Puerto Rico are of course Progressive. HIgh prices are good.

    So oil is transportation fuel. It is far to expensive compared to all other alternative to be responsibly used. With the exception of the Progressive alternatives.

    But your silliness continues. Both China and India have encouraged auto production and internal consumption. Cars pull an economy forward by the root. There is also huge efficiency advantages in distributive transportation which can react quickly to opportunity.

    It is simply inane to claim oil demand will decline with a billion more human beings joining a middle class.
    The solution probably will come from the Japanese and their now successful investments in hydrogen fuel cell transportation. There are very large subsea deposits around the world. Especially large ones around Japan and India. Commercial extraction lagged behind Japan Inc fuel cells.

    Energy demand will skyrocket as more human beings are connected to the productivity of modern economics.
    Both in productive activities and consumption. Certainly they will not have the incomes to pay for electricity at a higher generation cost than oil, like solar.

    A conservative estimates put the global reserves of methane ice energy reserves at 9,000 years. Obama may sprinkle moonglow and sparkle dust and keep American blind. BUt the world is not waiting on Obama.Progressives.

    I just hope American does elected another Progressive in 2016. Japan Inc already beat is to viable fuel cell.

    Now as a necessary counter point to the game is the thing rationalizations, DVR Chris Wallace.

    YOu will not have to endure an hour of pretentious wit. The elbows will fly either direction. Although the good Juan Williams does get a handicap adjustment regularly. Often in the form of Chris timing a hardbreak.

    Truth is Obama has imposed a European light policy. So rather than normal American economic recovery we have the worst in the modern era. that is fact. Nor is it surprising that we are doing a little better than structurally frozen and failing be degree Europe.

    Although even then there is no way to explain why the American economy is growing so poorly given the Providence of a massive surfeit of deeply discounted natural gas.

    Or how America could still have a sustained $2,000 decline in family incomes under Obama with an ocean of American produced natural gas selling for 70% off prior price and world price.

    What poor Charlie has is the declining elite of the failing press. They really are off in a very special wonderland. Which is why they pretend there are never unintended consequence. Their intellects clearly see all.

    Ah but that is the rub. Towering hubris and it pours through the TV when Charlie does current politics.

    Poor Charlie. He could say what about the decline in family incomes. Why that is all inequality.
    But the follow up is total labor productivity and utilization. Far beyond the realpolitik musings of the Ossifican progressiva reasoning.

  • norrishappy by norrishappy Jan 25, 2015 4:44 PM Flag

    A journey through Progressive Wonderland. Mental ossificans progressiva.

    Taking note of Al Hunt and how the mental lock colours Bloomberg to irrelevance.

    Assumptions take on faith rather than reason
    1) Economy is suddenly great
    Truth is heroic emergency monetary response remains in full
    The deficit spending is wildly out of control and the luxury of responsible caring capacity long ago exceeded.
    Ten year rates are at shocking lows. Which is no way reflective of an expectation of even normal economic growth
    2) Unemployment is resolved
    No thought of the value added quality of job created
    No though to what is actually record low labor participation
    The crashing birth rate means women really are in and need to be in the job market.
    3) Obama's politics are responsible for lower oil prices
    Reality is our oil and gas industry is under assault foreign and domestic
    As there is no stability anything is possible. Like disruption of Middle east oil supply
    4) The uptick in Obama's approval is solid and durable
    5) If the election which produced the Senate tidal wave today were held today, the result would not be the same.

    It is painful in the delusion and mindlessness. A condition not be helped by throwing in quotes complete free of circumstance and the times. Perhaps knowingly or more likely subconsciously believing realpolitik is governing.

    Which is something Obama did not engage in all six years. Even Obamacare was left to Pelosi and Reid to literally ram home by any and all means necessary. Which they did. What American is stuck with is a realpolitik entitlement beyond any rational repair.

    The childing autumn, angry winter, change
    Their wonted liveries, and the mazed world,
