Salon Publishes MULTIPLE Calls for Torture, Murder of Sarah Palin

Posted by iusbvision on December 29, 2010

Is anyone surprised? Our friends at Big Journalism caught only one of these, there are more. Below is what we found just browsing for about five minutes. There are thousands of hate screeds against Sarah Palin and Republicans in general on Salon,  many of which contain violence and rape imagery; the few we picked out were some of the most… shall we say… colorful.

By the way THIS is what we mean by Palin Derangement Syndrome…

Via BigJournalism.com:

Liberal online political magazine Salon.com published a letter to the editor Friday that called for the murder of 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

The letter was written in response to a mocking article at Salon titled, Good Morning America’s painfully friendly interview with Sarah Palin by Alex Pareene.

Pareene snarkily sums up the GMA interview:

“The interview was basically split into a couple of distinct sections: How awesome is your family, how bad is Barack Obama, how awful are people who criticize you, and how awesome is America?”

The first letter published in response to the article calls for Palin to be electrocuted by a cattle prod by convicted dog abuser Michael Vick:  “Vick gets a pet to torture and we get rid of Palin. A win-win for everyone!”

Michael Vick, the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, is a convicted felon who spent time in prison for dog fighting and animal cruelty.

That letter has apparently sat in the pole position under the article in the Letters to the Editor section since it was posted “Friday, December 17, 2010 12:33 PM ET.”

The Letters section for the GMA article lists 65 letters published over four pages. Each letter has a “flag” button to call attention to Salon editors about objectionable comments. It seems no one at Salon finds it objectionable for the site to publish an explicit call for murder.

Salon’s Editor at Large  Joan Walsh is a regular on MSNBC and CNN. Will Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough or Wolf Blitzer attack Walsh for prominently publishing a call for the murder of Sarah Palin? Will Walsh do the right thing and publicly apologize to Palin and pull the letter?

How soon will the Democratic Party front group Media Matters for America come along and slurp up this large chunk of vomit from Salon?

So I went to Salon and started looking at the comments – WARNING NOT SAFE FOR WORK –

I hear you, brother.

2010 YEARLY DEFICIT: $2.08 Trillion. That is 10 times higher than the last year Republicans had budgetary control.

Posted by iusbvision on December 29, 2010

Two trillion in debt raised in a single year and what do we have to show for it?

If you ever needed proof that Keynesianism does not work. If you ever needed proof that you cannot have spending and consumption without private sector production this should do it. But to the left Socialist and Keynesian theory, like the global warming scare, is a truth that is unfalsifiable no matter how much evidence and experience is piled on. Well theories don’t pay for groceries.

See our post when the government numbers indicates that the yearly deficit was only 6.5 times higher than FY2007 – LINK.

Reuters:

The U.S. government fell deeper into the red in fiscal 2010 with net liabilities swelling more than $2 trillion as commitments on government debt and federal benefits rose, a U.S. Treasury report showed on Tuesday.

The Financial Report of the United States, which applies corporate-style accrual accounting methods to Washington, showed the government’s liabilities exceeded assets by $13.473 trillion. That compared with a $11.456 trillion gap a year earlier.

Unlike the normal measurement of government intake of receipts against cash outlays, accrual accounting measures costs such as interest on the debt and federal benefits payable when they are incurred, not when funds are actually disbursed.

The report was instituted under former Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill, the first Treasury secretary in the George W. Bush administration, to illustrate the mounting liabilities of government entitlement programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

The government’s net operating cost, or deficit, in the report grew to $2.080 trillion for the year ended September 30 from $1.253 trillion the prior year as spending and liabilities increased for social programs. Actual and anticipated revenues were roughly unchanged.

The cash budget deficit narrowed in fiscal 2010 to $1.294 trillion from $1.417 trillion in 2009. But the $858 billion tax cut extension package enacted last week is expected to keep the deficit well above the $1 trillion mark for another year.

Washington Post: Health plans for high-risk patients attracting fewer, costing more than expected

Posted by iusbvision on December 29, 2010

Ya think? How long have we been saying this?

Washington Post:

An early feature of the new health-care law that allows people who are already sick to get insurance to cover their medical costs isn’t attracting as many customers as expected.

In the meantime, in at least a few states, claims for medical care covered by the “high-risk pools” are proving very costly, and it is an open question whether the $5 billion allotted by Congress to start up the plans will be sufficient.

Federal health officials contend the new insurance plans, designed solely for people who already are sick, are merely experiencing growing pains. It will take time to spread the word that they exist and to adjust prices and benefits so that the plans are as attractive as possible, the officials say.

State-level directors of the plans agree, in part. But in interviews, they also said that the insurance premiums are unaffordable for some who need the coverage – and that some would-be customers are skittish about the plans because federal lawsuits and congressional Republicans are trying to overturn the entire law.

The Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan, the program’s official name, is an early test of President Obama’s argument that people will embrace the politically divisive health-care overhaul once they see its advantages firsthand. According to some health-policy researchers, the success or failure of the pools also could foreshadow the complexities of making broader changes in health insurance by 2014, when states are to open new marketplaces – or exchanges – for Americans to buy coverage individually or in small groups.

Under the sprawling health-care legislation that Democrats pushed through Congress in March, the special health plans were designed as a temporary coping mechanism for a small but important niche among the nation’s 50 million uninsured: people who have been rejected by insurance companies because they already are sick.

Twenty-seven states have created their own high-risk pools. The rest used an option in the law to let their residents buy coverage through a new federal health plan.

Former socialist and former atheist Peter Hitchens explains the foolish elitism of the progressive secular left and how they look down on anyone who disagrees with contempt and scorn as if they are sub-human.

November: Durable Goods orders drop 1.3%, Consumer Spending up .4%, Savings down to 5.3%, Capital Goods down 6.8%

Posted by iusbvision on December 29, 2010

Welcome to our flat-lining economy. Up a little here, down a little there. Some numbers creeping up for a few months to flat-line again. This is what regulatory uncertainty, a loss of confidence and even fear of over reaching government does to an economy.

Bloomberg:

New orders for manufactured durable goods in November decreased $2.6 billion or 1.3 percent to $193.7 billion, the U.S. Census Bureau announced today. This decrease, down three of the last four months, followed a 3.1 percent October decrease. Excluding transportation, new orders increased 2.4 percent. Excluding defense, new orders decreased 2.3 percent.

Transportation equipment, also down three of the last four months, had the largest decrease, $6.2 billion or 11.9 percent to $45.5 billion. This was due to nondefense aircraft and parts, which decreased $6.6 billion.

Shipments

Shipments of manufactured durable goods in November, also down three of the last four months, decreased $0.7 billion or 0.3 percent to $195.8 billion. This followed a 1.0 percent October decrease.

Transportation equipment, down four consecutive months, had the largest decrease, $1.6 billion or 3.3 percent to $46.5 billion.

Unfilled Orders

Unfilled orders for manufactured durable goods in November, up ten of the last eleven months, increased $3.4 billion or 0.4 percent to $825.7 billion. This followed a 0.7 percent October increase.

Machinery, up ten consecutive months, had the largest increase, $2.1 billion or 2.0 percent to $106.3 billion.

[Gotta hire people to make the less common models – not happening – Editor]

Inventories

Inventories of manufactured durable goods in November, up eleven consecutive months, increased $1.9 billion or 0.6 percent to $319.1 billion. This followed a 0.6 percent October increase.

Transportation equipment, also up eleven consecutive months, had the largest increase, $1.1 billion or 1.3 percent to $84.3 billion.

Capital Goods

Non-defense new orders for capital goods in November decreased $4.9 billion or 6.8 percent to $66.1 billion. Shipments decreased slightly to $64.8 billion. Unfilled orders increased $1.3 billion or 0.3 percent to $505.3 billion. Inventories increased $0.7 billion or 0.5 percent to $135.2 billion. [This number hurts. Capital goods are tools and equipment used for making things and doing big things, like making or expanding factories. It takes investors money to buy these things.  – Editor]

 

Reuters:

The Commerce Department said spending rose 0.4 percent after increasing by an upwardly revised 0.7 percent in October. Economists polled by Reuters had expected spending, which accounts for about 70 percent of U.S. economic activity, to rise 0.5 percent last month after a previously reported 0.4 percent gain in October.

The report also showed the Federal Reserve’s preferred measure of consumer inflation — the personal consumption expenditures priceindex, excluding food and energy — rose 0.1 percent after being flat for four straight months. In the 12 months through November, the core PCE index rose 0.8 percent, the same margin as in October and still the smallest year-on-year gain since records started in 1960. [There is little confidence in the Federal Reserves method of measuring inflation any more as some in the media and politicians are now openly mocking it. In short, no inflation my ear…  – Editor]

The gains in spending were the latest to suggest an acceleration in the growth pace this quarter after output increased at a 2.6 percent annualized rate in the July-September period.

Spending was supported by a 0.3 percent increase in incomes, which was slightly more than the 0.2 percent rise that economists had expected. Incomes rose 0.4 percent in October. Consumers also dipped into their savings to fund purchases. [Incomes are up largely because temp hiring is up. Temps get no benefits so they tend to get higher wages – Editor]

Spending adjusted for inflation rose 0.3 percent after advancing 0.5 percent in October. The seventh straight month of gains bolstered views the spending pace gathered momentum in the current quarter after growing at a 2.4 percent rate in the July-September period. [Whoa now look at that .3% number. So if consumer spending went up .4% and adjusted for inflation the number is .3% that means 25% of the increase in consumer spending was inflation, of which the Federal Reserve says is super low. This is another example of how Sarah Palin was way out ahead of this one.  Those in the elite media who mock her have not been paying much attention as she has been making predictions in several policy areas way out ahead of everyone else, getting mocked for it, but being proved correct again and again. – Editor]

The savings rate slipped to 5.3 percent last month, the smallest since March, from 5.4 percent in October. Savings dropped to $614.8 billion, the lowest level since March.
