… damn marionettes …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 30th,2012

… i am absolutely amazed , these days , how many of these looney left DemoCrap “contributors” and “experts” pervert themselves , and peg themselves to the party line . They set themselves up to be humiliated , when the “so – called” facts turn out to be “nothing” at all . they set aside their experience , their instincts , and their informed judgement , just to follow a “party line” that is desired by someone else . Why do these people act and desire to look like fools . Why ? They look like idiots , morons ,  or worse …

… Informed Commentary has to do better . The media has to hold these “so called” experts to a higher standard . Most of all , they need to cut the “Gordion Knot” so that they are getting more proper expert commentary , not the party line from a puppet …

… on Governor Chris Christie …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 29th,2012

… excellent speech , perfect tune and tone , more than enough ” red meat ” …

… Gov. Christie can “go nuclear” when necessary . Tonight was not the night for that . That is for sure …

… A keynote speech , done right , helps set the ” place setting” for the candidates [Romney , Ryan] …

… now , it is up to them …

… i believe in them , and that they are more than up to the task …

… the state of the 2012 race …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 28th,2012

… and now [for me] , it begins …

… Wisconsin and Michigan are in play ? …

… yea , believe it ! …

… both of these two state have become far more “red” than one might think . both of them have legislatures with both chambres run by the GOP (WS will again in its State Senate, after the general election) . Both have very conservative Republican Governors (Scott Walker in Wisconsin , Rich Snyder in Michigan) , and both have State Supreme Courts that are at least marginally or better conservative , and are getting better …

… Will Romney / Ryan carry one , or both ? …

… Good Question ? …

… What do I think ? …

… I believe that Romney / Ryan will carry one of them , most likely Wisconsion . It is the more redder of the two . Walker is more proven vote – getter , and the union(s) in his state have largely ” shot their wad . ” they may want to spend and do more , but how much more ? their financial foundation has been badly undermined , and the AFL-CIO can only spend so much money in so many places , as do the national unions . they have to choose their targets carefully , and Michigan is , for them , far easier to defend .

… However , the population base in and around Detroit (and Wayne Cty) has severly shrunk . Michigan actually lost population (i think) in the last census . Indiana , Ohio , & Illinois grew . not Michigan.

… carrying both Wisconsin & Michigan might be asking a bit much … but it is possible … as is Pennsylvania , Colorado , New Mexico , Iowa , Virginia , North Carolina , & Florida … and , most of all , my home state , Ohio .

… Linda McMahon in the US Senate ? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 28th,2012

… it just might happen …

… given the polls (i know , i know) , she evidently has gotten ahead of her democrap opponent , Rep Chris Murphy . Whether she can make it , it is a good question . She has the smarts , the brains , the wherewithal , and the drive …

… however , living in Connecticut , as she does , does not make this race all that easy , or probably … but , it is possible …

laws — those passed by Congress , and signed by the President ; or those enacted over his Veto …

faithfully — in basic , from any dictionary , adhering firmly and devotely …

… Make Some Sense …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 27th,2012

 

… just jamming more and more money into the hands of banks (who themselves are afraid {bleepless} to lend anything to anyone) is not going to do any good …

… no , not QE 3 , not QE 4 , or anything else like that …

… some sensible steps to encourage business are in order …

first , put more money in the hands of taxpayers . it is their money , not the government ‘ s . they know how they want to use it , save it , spend it , or invest it better than the government can …

second , a graduated and scaled capital gains tax cut is in order . short – term cap gains should have some kind of small penalty rate , to send the signal that we do not encourage short – term holdings , or speculation . Intermediate – term gains should be more favoured , with a gradually lower rate , and longer – term cap gains should be most – favoured , with as low a tax rate as possible , preferrably 0% …

third , repeal Dodd – Frank . it does nothing to solve the problems with the banks , it creates needless bureacracy , and creates cost(s) for all in the system that are unneccessary …

fourth , modify or repeal Sarbanes – Oxley .. We should be encouraging share listings and venture capital startups , not harassing them with a lot of headaches …

… current law , pre – Sarbox , is enough of a deterrent [tuned to current tech] to the bad guys and gals …

… the Crap Sandwich …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 27th,2012

… Representative Allen West [R-Fl] has a habit of putting things plainly and bluntly …

… referring to the President ‘ s campaign , and , yes , that of his re – election opponent (in particular) , both are dishing out a particular brand of [bleep] …

… in other words , they are dishing out a Crap Sandwich for a campaign …

… which , to me , does not come out to much of one at all …

… but one that still needs to be dealt with …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 27th,2012

… Tropical Storm Issac (soon to be Hurricane Issac) is a nasty bugger . At the rate at which it is going [North by NW] , it is likely going to make landfall in or near the Big Easy , or the nearby area (southern Mississippi)…

… Please pray for those folks , and contribute what you can where you can … they are going to need it ! …

…Ohio Politics…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 27th,2012

… courtesy of a Columbus Dispatch poll …

… the Presidential Race …

… Mitt Romney — 45 % ,

Barack Obama — 45 % ;

… 10 % undecided …

 

… the Senate Race …

Josh Mandel — 44 %

Sherrod Brown — 44 %

… 12 % undecided …

… What do I think ? …

… the poll itself is a bit odd , done by mail . however , the statistical sample is still sound …

… basically , the sample is valid , but to be taken with a grain of salt …

… the Ohio Poll is a valid poll , with a long past history , although i do not see the statistical breakdown …

… it is notorious for having a sample of more Ds than Rs , and Is than either Rs or Ds …

 

… in political terms …

[Senate Race , first]

Sherrod Brown is in a fair bit of trouble . if he is tied , with Mandel , at this point in the race , given the ad war , he has an uphill climb to survive for another term . Brown needs , among other things , to carry NE Ohio by a wide margin , and not lose central Ohio . Central Ohio means not just Franklin County , but the surrounding counties (the entire group) . they are just large enough to aid Mandel , and innoculate him from a likely narrow loss in Franklin County .

NEOhio is another matter  . Brown resides in the city of Avon (in Lorain County)  , and has for some time . however , he is not native to this part of the state . Mandel is from the NE , and is from the city of Lyndhurst , on the east side of Cuyahoga County .

Brown needs a big margin in Cuyahoga County , and he just may not get it . Mandel is a Republican , but he is a retired Marine , and he is also of the jewish faith . given the feelings in the jewish community this time around , it should help Mandel narrow his loss of Cuyahoga County , and “goose” his margins in the surrounding republican areas …

Brown has an added handicap . His last name . Traditionally , the surname of Brown is golden in Ohio politics . However , Sherrod has lost with it . He lost when running for re – election for Secretary of State (Chief Elections Officer) , and , now he is in danger again …

… can lightening strike twice ?? …

[the Presidential Race]

this one is far more clear cut . POTUS is in big trouble . given the continuation of his solid performance into the fall , I believe Mitt Romney will carry Ohio …
