good luck with that.  "what difference does it make?"   wink

Six straight coin toss wins - someone pointed out the odds of that are 64 to 1.

Well that article is as grudgingly as good as it gets from a liberal newspaper.  King admits it is serious, and even she sounds almost as bad as "I did not have sex with that woman"  but then rather disassembles it to be as lenient on Clinton as possible.  Even suggesting someone else purposely or inadvertently sould have set her up.
And in the very end of course takes the view of worrying about the Democrat Party.  Instead of calling for her to go to jail or at least drop out of the race he calls to "warm up" Bien.

If I had the time I would go back and see how lenient the Wash compost was to Nixon.   By now they were almost certainly calling for his resignation or impeachment.

That all said this is a crack in the Democrat machine's armor.

OPEC Stands on the Brink
By Keith Kohl | Friday, February 5, 2016

Although the media headlines today are dominated by Russia, Saudi Arabia, speculation on China's slowing demand growth, and the tight oil drillers in the lower-48 states, it really was only a matter of time before other OPEC members reached a breaking point.

And that's precisely where Venezuela finds itself today.

What you might not know is that Venezuela actually has a very long history of oil exports.

Not many people know that the first barrel of Venezuela oil was shipped abroad about 320 years before Col. Drake's famous well struck black gold along the banks of Oil Creek, Pennsylvania.

It's true.

Just after the Spaniards conquered the area, there were rumors that oil could be used to cure gout, which led to a barrel of crude being shipped overseas to Emperor Charles V (it's a shame it didn't help with malaria).

But historical tangents aside, you have to ask yourself just how desperate Venezuela is over the potential collapse of its oil industry.

A State on the Brink

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a huge fan of Venezuela.

Any time you need to physically hit your president in the head with a piece of fruit to get his attention, that might be your first clue that something is wrong.

I guess he has other things on his mind, especially considering that his oil industry is on the brink of collapse.

But just how desperate is the Venezuelan oil industry? Let's just say that it's been pushed far enough to go over Saudi Arabia's head. Just this week, the country sent its new oil minister on a mission to visit both OPEC and non-OPEC producers and plead with them to cut production.

His travels included stops in Iraq, Iran, Qatar, Algeria, Nigeria, and Russia.

Now, we've always known that Venezuela has been one of OPEC's biggest price hawks — yet it's for good reason.

While the country reports a staggeringly massive amount of oil reserves — 299 billion barrels at last count — don't let it fool you.

To say Venezuela's supply is of poor quality would be a gross understatement. We're talking about some of the dirtiest, heaviest, most expensive oil to extract in the world.

Nearly 80% of those proven reserves, or 235 billion barrels, are found in the Orinoco Belt.

Few countries have a higher break-even price than Venezuela. The IMF reported last October that Venezuela's fiscal break-even price was $117.50 per barrel.

Personally, I don't know any oil bulls that believe crude prices will surge that much.

It gets worse for them, too. Things are so bad now that Venezuela is forced to import light crude oil from the United States in order to help refine its heavy oil.

Pleading its case to the world's largest producers, however, may not work out the way it's hoping, considering Venezuela's biggest enemy is Saudi Arabia itself.

Don't believe me? Just read on...



OPEC's Internal War

So you really want to know how bad things have gotten for Venezuela?

When the House of Saud declared war on oil prices more than 18 months ago, it wasn't just on the tight oil companies in the United States.

It was also on fellow OPEC members like Venezuela.

Remember, oil ministers from Saudi Arabia have consistently argued that their main priority is to preserve the nation's market share — no matter who's in their way.

Over the last decades, Venezuela's oil exports to the United States have fallen by more than 46%. Of course, you should also bear in mind that almost 90% of this oil was shipped to refineries along the Gulf Coast.

And let's be clear here: the Gulf Coast is a crucial region for Venezuela's oil due to the fact that it's where most of the United States' heavy crude processing capacity is located.

The problem is that Venezuela is quickly losing ground to its OPEC brethren.

More than half of the oil that is shipped to the Gulf Coast comes from an OPEC member, and three-quarters of those OPEC exports consist of crude exports from Saudi Arabia and Venezuela.

In fact, six out of every 10 barrels that the Saudis export to the United States end up going to the Gulf Coast.

Now, considering that tight oil plays have almost single-handedly pushed U.S. oil output to over 9 million barrels per day over the last nine years, it's clear that the Gulf Coast has become a fierce battleground for foreign exporters.

And if the situation is grim enough for Venezuela to send its oil minister around the world begging for a meager 5% output cut across the board, you can imagine how close its oil industry is standing to the brink.

Until next time,

"And your other point is paramount, how do you get the '49% who pay nothing' to see the necessity of lowering rates on the productive to grow the economy?  It has to be based on a positive belief in the future.  If you are young (or female or black or Hispanic or gay or ?) that an opportunity-oriented society is better than Soviet style of dictated benefits society (that is collapsing) and if you are old, that you feel that same way for the opportunities and future for your children and grandchildren."

I agree with you. 

You tell the 49% you won't get anything if the payers cannot keep and invest most of their money.  Somebody HAS to pay for them.  Also don't you want for yourself or your children to have the opportunity to get wealthy?  Or to be doomed to a life of working for the State?

So how is Marco going to do this?

11  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Re: Sen.Ted Cruz on: February 05, 2016, 11:07:08 AM
Doug,

My sense is the only way to lower rates is to get rid of loopholes.

When i see rich with living on large estates paying less property tax than myself because of BS farm deductions for having a few corn stalks or a bee keeper than we got to get rid of deductions.

That in my view is the only way to get a few of the 49% who pay nothing to grudgingly go along. 
12  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Re: Donald Trump on: February 05, 2016, 10:52:10 AM
Knowing what to think about Trump, with regards to how will he govern is an enigma.  It is really hard to tell since he has never governed before.  On one hand we think he will be fair though committed to principles and rebuilding America.  OTOH we see his personality, the lack of humility, the temper tantrums, the name calling
.

I remember many years ago my Mom and I were walking from the corner bank and we ran into our retired dentist.  I don't recall the conversation exactly but I remember word for word something he said to my mother:  "one can never know what is going on in the back of a man's mind".  Something about that and the way he said it, struck me as words only an older person who has seen a lot could know. I never forgot it though I admit I didn't really understand it.  
Now many years later having been through experiences already posted over many years, I now understand it.  
I've have read books and spoken to intelligence people who confirm that there are very few people who can be totally trusted.
Sex , money, power maybe drugs can shift what seems to be a person's character to something else.

I've also read that the best, though far from perfect way to know who might be the one who is telling the truth, or stay honest, is the one who has demonstrated throughout his or her life this trait, or similar traits.  Always go by how a person has lived and NOT by what they say, such as, "you can trust me", or "I a am a person of God".  Unfortunately words mean little to nothing.  Character is based on demonstrated living not on words.

All this said, bottom line, is this this National Review hit piece, while another piece of the puzzle, is just one example of Trump's character.  One could argue that this is a positive trait and when he commits to something he stands by his commitment.  He did offer her to buy her house.  Probably offered her a lot of premium.

One could assume from this that if he commits to building a border wall, he will do it.  Not just empty words.
The National review sees this as a bully.  I agree one could look at it this way.  But I counter that one could also look at it as story that shows Trump is a man who sticks to his guns.

BTW, I used to go to Atlantic City when I lived in Camden, NJ and Philadelphia and I would shoot across South Jersey to AC to play blackjack and I remember this scene of two or three giant casinos surrounding this tiny little island of dirt with a tiny house in the middle of these giant concrete monstrosities.  Someone in that house refused to sell, it was obvious.  So the moguls simply built up these skyscrapers all around her and up to the very and every inch of the property from all sides.  Wow.  When the little gal who is stubborn butts horns with the big guys who are also stubborn this is what we get.  Both stick to their guns.

I still would like to know how Trump is with his employees.  If he is fair and kind with them then that IS how he is likely to be as President.  In business all I want to know is he good for his word. I am less impressed than if he is forceful.

Doug,

You bring up THE question for me when you state you don't think a capital gains tax elimination is politically possible.  How far to push or not is the question in Shakespearean terms.

Levin thinks we push for it all and stand firm as though we just need the right message ignoring we may lose it all in so doing, and rhinos are the other extreme who push for nothing and fight a rear guard defensive fight while retreating.

Perhaps you and Rubio are right.  Push for smaller incremental gains and dig in to fight for the long game - like the C(rats) do.

"One more central leftist tenet is for government to raise the private sector wage.  While we debate a federal minimum wage increase, many cities and states have been raising theirs.  Government wants Walmart in particular to pay its people more.  In the meantime, Walmart closed 154 stores and laid off 10,000 employees.  Question:  Who is helped by that?  Certainly not Walmart employees or shoppers considered the heart of the lower middle class that we care the most about."

Well wages are like everything else supply and demand.  We keep flooding the market form immigrants endlessly wages will never go up because they don't have to.

Sarah Palin

Dirty Politics: Witnessing Firsthand It's Always Heartbreaking, Never Surprising
Thank heavens Donald Trump opened so many eyes to the lies, corruption and total lack of accountability that come so naturally to the permanent political class. And Sen. Ted Cruz was spot on when he once noted that "millions of Americans are asking for accountability and truth." Which is why it's so curious - and saddens us - this lack of accountability with the lies of Cruz's own campaign.
Cruz's campaign chairman, U.S. Representative Steve King, is lying, and good for Dr. Ben Carson for calling this out. King, who's previously asked for and received my endorsement, time and resources to support his own election, is still lying about my altruistic support of Mr. Trump, and he's refused to provide any evidence to the contrary. And, this U.S. Congressman actually lied to his own constituents on behalf of Cruz, regarding a good man, Dr. Carson. He told voters Carson was dropping out of the Presidential race immediately before the Iowa caucus, causing a relative uproar inside the process, so the word would spread and he could rack up more votes for his candidate, Cruz. That's a dirty trick. Dr. Carson deserved better. The voters deserved better!
Where is the accountability for these political actions? Very sad; typical Washington tactics. THIS is why "the status quo has got to go."
Our friend Dr. Carson put it so well:
"As Christians, of course we accept people’s apologies, we also have to ask ourselves is this acceptable to us, the American people, or should there be some accountability? There should be some consequences for things. You don’t just say ‘oh, okay, sorry… okay let’s move on.’ The damage was done to me, it wasn’t done to them.”
We've had eight years of a reckless President, accountable to no one, pushing this country to the brink. Why would we ever take a risk repeating that? We are never going to turn this country around if we keep electing "more of the same." Just like conservatives have been preaching in opposition to Obama's political tactics for years: actions speak louder than words.
The Cruz Campaign's actions to destroy a good man's efforts to serve are no different than Obama's practice of not holding anyone accountable. Typical politics. Typical politicians.
Here's background:

There would be no United Nations if not for the US.   So of course the UN  does it's best to dis respect us.

My answer would be to pull out of the UN:

Good post CD.
This use of government including the legal side to silence critics is particularly troubling.
It is like using the IRS against those you don't like, like Clinton or Obama.

Filing lawsuits for every criticism he doesn't like is not good for someone running for public office IMHO

Former IG thinks fix is in.  Consistent with his predictions is a recent Pentagon announcement that Patreus will NOT be demoted.  This is no coincidence I was not aware that his lawyer is also Clinton's.

Plea bargains, some misdemeanors, fines, a few lower level people will be thrown under the bus (in pulbic - but taken care of in private)  and she will go merrily on her way carrying her mob to power:

Has to go through 4  female loyal Democrats.  Like this scoundrel said in the 90's (hillary) "no controlling legal authority.

politics will once again trump law .   I don't know why Bennett doesn't get disbarred.  We just don't know what goes on behind the scenes.  One can only imagine the corruption.

I would not say I am a fan of Beck anymore, but do think he is probably right about this.  Since the topic is Trump I post it here rather than under Beck:

OTOH Dick Morris thinks that Trump DOES have the temperament to be President.
On this I am with Beck.

Perhaps the best way to get a handle on how Trump would be is to find out from as many of his employees or ex employees as possible how he treated them since he has full power over them.
If he is kind and fair then I think it is reasonable to assume he would be so as President.
