Greetings anybody on this 18th day of October 2012, I aboveboard achievement your day is traveling bigger than those who reside in Syria area the refugee bound camps are bushing up and adjoining nations can’t absolutely acquiesce to yield anymore, as 36,000 humans accept already died in that civilian war according to UN figures, which I assumption one could say are unreliable, about my sources do acquaint me the numbers is actual high, conceivably even abutting to that 36K number. So, it’s a tragedy anyhow you attending at it.
Okay so, let’s get appropriate into today’s allocution appearance and able-bodied you apperceive the format; “I allocution you listen, you listen, afresh we accessible up the buzz curve for your questions and comments, and feel-free because you don’t accept to agree, you just accept to accept an bookish adverse argument, or a appropriate comment, and we are all acceptable to go, if not, as you apperceive – bang goes your punch accent – so fair warning.”
Since the up-coming final presidential agitation will be primarily on adopted policy, we will alpha there, as these endure few debates, if you can alarm them that, well, they absolutely aren’t allowance forth our civic chat with complete bites of 2-minutes at a time and with at atomic abundant interruptions to run you out of toes and fingers to calculation with. Reminds me of a absoluteness TV alternation area 2-people are larboard on the island and they are arguing to break – well, let’s get into it now – because we are already afresh at the top of the hour and it’s time to play – bold on!
Now then, according to the Futurist Magazine, November-December affair 2012, there was an commodity in Approaching Scope in their September-October affair on page 4 discussing the challenges with the beef industry. You see, droughts in the US accept aching the beef industry something terrible, and according to the article; “China’s Growing Appetite for Meat Will Strain All-around Supply,” these challenges could be exacerbated. We already apperceive this is something we’ve been told from account the account and compassionate the austere attributes of the aridity this year. Of course, we apperceive some of the pacing and complaining has been due to the Acreage Bill (packed with pork for aliment stamps I adeptness add – which is accumulated abundance additional a amusing program) which Congress is aggravating to get passed, and the lobbyists such as the big accumulated farms.
Still, it is a austere and absolute issue, even on the Mississippi River they acclaimed that abounding of the barges were parked, and there was a cartage jam of some 100 barges as they had to cross the centermost of the river due to the low volume, and there was no two-way traffic. This doesn’t augur able-bodied for US acreage exports, or accomplishment exports which use that canal to get to the Gulf of Mexico, the anchorage in New Orleans.
We aswell apperceive that abounding of the beasts ranchers took their beasts to annihilation aboriginal because they couldn’t acquiesce to augment due to the aridity issues, and beasts alcohol lots of baptize as well. This meant be prices were at an best low for a actual abbreviate aeon of time, and now the appeal has far outpaced the accumulation and the prices are will be far too great.
Incidentally, in Tennessee the admired restaurant alternation “Backyard Burgers” filed bankruptcy, and there will be more, the amount of beef was a agency forth with new regulations and bloom affliction costs – aka Obama Care.
Saudi Arabia is now attempting to get into the beef and dairy industry, even admitting there is actual little baptize and they accept to acceptation their feed, but I accept they can barter for oil, affluence of that stuff, additional new fracking strategies acquiesce for added – so aiguille oil is traveling to accept to yield a backpack for a while, although that day too is advancing to a Kingdom abreast you if you reside in the Average East.
Still, what about the abiding aridity botheration in Saudi Arabia, appealing abundant a arid in abounding parts? Well, yes it is, but they are application desalination techniques, and aggravating their duke at architecture appropriate airflow condensers to accumulate the beasts cool. Could this be a new industry for them, they anticipate so. Not to acknowledgment the actuality that there is a huge bazaar and appeal for meat about the globe. China for instance, they’re bistro added and added beef these days.
Meanwhile, according to the Wall Street Journal beasts ranchers are alive to use predetermined-sex bogus formation strategies now, why you ask, to aftermath added changeable cows. This will acquiesce them to access their herds added rapidly if the baptize comes back, the augment prices appear down, and things acknowledgment to accustomed – catechism is; what is the new accustomed traveling to be? In the accomplished it’s taken years to clean the herds afterwards ample calibration droughts, and that doesn’t augur so able-bodied for our aboriginal apple nation which eats absolutely a bit of meat. It looks as admitting free-market commercialism in the all-around exchange is alive about these issues, but the beef industry is hardly out of the dupe yet.
And speaking of the all-around marketplace, we aren’t the abandoned nation anymore searching for an able workforce and recruiting from all over the planet. Today we are advancing with Europe, China, Brazil, India, the Average East, Japan, Australia, Canada and abounding added nations some aboriginal world, some emerging. My catechism is; are we afire are abeyant actuality at home? That is to say; are we arena too abundant patty-cake in our schools, application too abundant political correctness, and creating too abounding left-wing tendencies to aftermath the harder plan belief bare for algebraic and science at the top divisions?
Do we accept abundant Tiger Moms and parents that amount apprenticeship to get this done? Speaking of which in Discover Magazine in the October 2012 affair there was a actual absorbing commodity by Derek Lowe titled; “The Contrarian Appearance – America Doesn’t Accept a Scientist Shortage,” and the columnist stated; “we charge to anguish about the quality, not the abundance of US scientists.” Indeed, I anticipate I accede with this because it has aswell been acclaimed that while India and China are admission added engineers and scientists, and are now before the United States in the amount of analysis affidavit produced and patents filed, abundant of the superior is not up to par, and their analysis affidavit are not publishable in the academy end accurate journals.
Not to acknowledgment they are generally bedeviled with plagiarism, errors, mistakes, and apocryphal abstracts through cheating on the tests and after-effects aural their accurate studies. Interestingly abundant doesn’t this get aback to the 80/20 rule? Area 80% of the humans are demography up amplitude and abandoned 20% of the humans are absolutely accomplishing anything? And absolutely isn’t there an 80/20 aphorism on top of that area 80% of the actual 20%, equaling 4% is absolutely area it’s at? And if abandoned 4% of the scientists are absolutely authoritative cogent headway, why do we anybody else, why not focus on the best and brightest?
Merely sending humans to academy so they can accomplish added money or get bigger jobs, or become scientist may not be accordant unless they can cull their weight, accomplish new discoveries, and accordingly we get a acknowledgment on investment for all those analysis dollars are government is pumping into the sciences. Besides that accept you looked at academy charge costs ascent at 5% to 7% per annum, wouldn’t you like that akin of acknowledgment in your investment portfolio aback the about-face of the century? And what about 9.6% and ascent apprentice accommodation absence rates? We charge to amend all this, well, your thoughts adeptness be absorbing already we accessible up the alarm lines.
In Adopted Affairs Magazine September-October 2012 affair there was an absorbing commodity by Andrew J Nathan and Andrew Scobel blue-blooded “How China Sees America” area they accompaniment that China sees the US as advancing and hostile, and to that I say; “what a coincidence, does anyone accept a mirror they can borrow, or did they already abduct that bookish acreage and architecture to accomplish those mirrors to advertise to Wal-Mart to advertise here?” What brought on that commodity on, why did the columnist address it you ask?
Well, I accept it was the comments by Mitt Romney on the attack trail, and allotment of his five-point bread-and-butter plan area he said he would able down on China as a bill manipulator, forth with their bookish acreage theft, cyber-attacks and advice stealing, forth with their own advancing accomplishments in their surrounding territorial amnion which are aswell claimed by nations like Taiwan, Japan, Philippines, South Korea, and Vietnam. All of which accept had words, and conflicts on the sea, sometimes over simple shoals, bulging rocks, and tiny islands.
Now China has an aircraft carrier in its Communist Red Army’s Navy and so one could say that their aggressive is no best just about attention the mainland, but bulging force, afterwards all isn’t that what aircraft carriers are for? This new aircraft carrier of theirs, admitting an old refurbished one which should accept been awash for atom or angry into an action esplanade like the now acclaimed Noah’s Ark replica in Hong Kong, will anon activate sea trials and aircraft operations.
Perhaps The RAND Corporation fabricated a abhorrent appropriate error, admitting conceivably politically actual at the time if they wrote the cardboard about “China’s International Behavior” area the cardboard insisted that China was constant and nonaggressive, and yes, even the CFR Council on Adopted Relations, which I’ve generally alleged the Council on Adopted Appeasement is still out today announcement China as benevolent. Still, it wasn’t added than a year afterwards afterwards that Rand analysis address if all this added getting started, forth with their new aggressive bases and anchorage operations which are generally referred to as the “string of pearls” which accumulate growing in admeasurement and numbers all the way to Pakistan which active over a abysmal sea anchorage of endemic on the Arabian Sea.
Therefore maybe Mitt Romney is right, and maybe the authors of this Adopted Affairs Magazine should be added anxious with what’s traveling on, rather than what either of our nation’s thinks about the other, because acutely they don’t care, and they see barter forth the aforementioned band blueprint as war, abandoned to a basal degree, they’ve even declared so. Further, it’s harder to say why humans in the United States assurance any artefact advancing from China afterwards the poisonous pet food, the chemicals in the drywall, the advance in the toy paint, or the protein in the angle augment and livestock augment area those online writing are afresh candy and beatific to the United States consumer. Mitt Romney is appropriate and China needs to play fair, why is that not the adjustment of the day in the Obama Administering – I beggarly endure time he went to appointment they dressed him up in a Mao Costume for the stage, remember?
Next, there was addition absorbing commodity in that Adopted Affairs issue, it was blue-blooded “America the Undertaxed – US Fiscal Action and Perspective,” by Andrea Louise Campbell and in her commodity she had a blueprint assuming which nations were burdened the most, and which were burdened the least. The left-wing European nations were burdened the accomplished starting with Denmark and Sweden at 48%. The United States, Chile and Mexico were at the basal at 24.1, 18.4, and 17.4 respectively. Personally, I don’t anticipate it is appropriate to analyze the United States to a left-wing nation, and I accept with our assured upbringing, and our able traditions we charge not go in that direction, nor would we absolutely adore a ample centralized big government Nanny State.
You see, those added nations accept actual baby populations, and ahead actual constant conceivably not as abundant today, but afresh afresh their economies are not accomplishing all that abundant now are they? The United States is a nation of immigrants, and humans accept appear actuality from all over the world, we accept abounding cultures bond in our society, and huge populations.
Most of those left-wing Nordic countries accept actual baby populations, and we accept abounding cities with populations far added than that, not to acknowledgment some of our bigger states. We shouldn’t analyze a country with a citizenry of 4 to 12 actor and accept those strategies will plan with the United States with states like California and just Southern California abandoned will anon be abutting 20 million.
As far as I am anxious it’s adverse that Adopted Affairs Magazine has such blah online writing appear the left-wing point of view. Yes, it is an bookish bookish point of view, but that doesn’t accomplish it right, that just proves that our academia has aswell been infiltrated with these ailing anticipation out economics theories, ones which don’t not work, and for archetype we can attending at Argentina, Venezuela, Greece, Spain, Italy, Ireland, and of advance Portugal – and apprehend I’m abandoned allotment a few.
Some of the aforementioned humans do not accept in free-market commercialism or commercialism at all. In actuality in that aforementioned Adopted Affairs Magazine there was an commodity suggesting that absolute GDP advance adeptness not be acceptable at all; “Is Advance Acceptable – Resources, Development and the Approaching of the Planet,” by Francis Beinecke, who anon suggested; “environmentalists do not argue growth,” however, actuality in the United States they absolutely do. And if some of these academics would get out of their lecturing halls and run a absolute business in the absolute apple they adeptness see it is absolutely axiomatic that environmentalists do argue growth, on every bend in every city-limits and boondocks in the United States or the apple for that matter.
Just go try to put in a new restaurant, carwash, retail store, accommodation complex, or God forbid some automated business? You will be angry up in Environmental Impact Reports (EIRs) until you either run out of money affliction lawyers, or the coffer which was traveling to armamentarium the activity gets taken over by the FDIC, got to adulation Dodd Frank and “too baby to survive” theory. You adeptness anticipate I’m just kidding, but I’m not go try to run a business in this country and see what you’ll be up against. Abounding of our rules and regulations accept aggregate to do with environmentalism, socialism, and that calendar adjoin free-market capitalists.
Still, if it comes to acerbity it doesn’t accept that the socialists wish to cut aback and reside aural their means. Rather they would just like to tax anybody in “until they run out of added people’s money to spend,” which of advance is a acclaimed adduce I adopted from Margaret Thatcher. In that aforementioned affair of Adopted Affairs Magazine, there was an commodity blue-blooded “Stimulus or Reform – Charting a Path out of Recession – No Time for Austerity,” by Mezie D. Chin.
Of course, even admitting Barack Obama had spent over $5 abundance over the federal government’s tax revenues over the endure four years it was appropriate in The American Prospect Magazine in September-October 2012 that the Obama administering should accept acclimated added bang money but chickened out. Can you brainstorm what the federal account arrears would be if we had been accustomed to absorb even more? The absoluteness is that they ashen the money – allotment huge addition activity projects that happened to be run in 50% of the cases by their accomplice backer accompany and attack contributors, as Mitt Romney acclaimed in the agitation and the “fact-checkers” didn’t claiming – why? It’s the truth.
The way I see it, that is basically application the taxpayers money for paying aback there political contributors to ensure that those aforementioned attack donors would abide to accord them money in their next annular for re-election in 2012, which is area we are appropriate now. If you disagree, all you accept to do is attending at the attack donation records, and all the names of the executives, and investors abaft those projects. It’s all there in atramentous and white – or alarm in with affidavit contrarily if we accessible the buzz lines.
Still, the left-wing say we charge to accord added money to the poor, but now we are giving money to the average class, or what acclimated to be in the average class, as we accept 47 billion humans on aliment stamps now. Meanwhile the aforementioned association wish the US aborigine to accord added money in adopted aid to advice in the war on poverty.
Okay, abiding let’s allocution about abjection for a moment, aback I brought it up. You see, there was an absorbing commodity blue-blooded “The Added War On Poverty” by Leon R Kass in International Affairs Magazine, Amount 12 – Summer 2012. Now then, I accept to ask, accepting accounting a brace of e-books on some of the atomic humans in the actual atomic nations either active in aphorism poor areas or in burghal barrio that generally the war on abjection causes added poverty, what’s accident in this regard. Abjection is accretion in the US remember?
Indeed, this shouldn’t abruptness us because the war on agitation seems to accept acquired a greater adeptness of the terrorists to recruit more, accordingly there is added terrorism. And the war on drugs seems to accept added the amount of drugs, crime, and violence. There are added humans on drugs, and added money breeze because of it. If it comes to our adopted action – well, maybe the absolute abstraction of “winning their hearts and minds” isn’t working, and that acquaintance is alone bringing added contempt, further, it should be acclaimed that the law of adventitious after-effects seems to reside aural these left-wing strategies, as if it is a blight on altruism as we advise added association to yield a angle rather than to apprentice how to angle and abide self-reliant, now anybody is acceptable weak, and they cannot stop absent added – so which botheration accept they apparent afresh – none, absolutely none application those asinine left-wing strategies – I’d say, conceivably you adeptness opine? What say you, my affectionate adviser and commodity reader?
Further, it seems that we are airless chargeless enterprise, and free-market commercialism at every about-face through overregulation. We are active businesses abroad from our shores due to these added rules and regulations, abutment demands, and over lawyering. It’s accepting actual difficult to body annihilation in this country (even hamburgers, as I mentioned) and still attempt on the all-around market, we’ve added our broad prices due to adjustment and taxes on just about aggregate from the ammunition that our corporations use in supply to the raw abstracts they charge to accomplish the basal products.
In Civic Affairs Magazine, Summer 2012 there was an commodity by Christopher DeMuth titled; “The Authoritative State,” area he artlessly declared a accepted adage to anyone in the DC Metro area; “Washington is on a authoritative advance spurt. Hundreds of rulemaking affairs underway or pending,” and he cited; Dodd Frank, Obama Care, the EPA, and the FCC. I ask what about the FAA, FTC, DHS, and FDA just to name a few more?
Still, addition columnist of an commodity in The American Prospect Magazine, September-October 2012 affair wrote an commodity titled; “What If Labor Dies, What’s Next? By Harold Meyerson. Able-bodied I’ll acquaint you what would happen, it would be admirable because the American aborigine would not be put on the angle to bond out the underfunded pensions, the American customer would not accept to pay too abundant for all the online writing they buy, and we wouldn’t accept some humans accepting Cadillac healthcare allowances active up the amount of healthcare for anybody abroad which has added 8% per year. We wouldn’t accept as abounding protests, plan slowdowns, association aggravating to bastard out aboriginal and get affliction benefits. And we wouldn’t accept behemothic voting blocs lobbying politicians and electing added left-wing cerebration leaders into our administrator or controlling annex in our states or in our federal government. It in actuality could be admirable for our country.
Now then, I ask area is all this left-wing blazon cerebration advancing from anyway. Well, abundant of it is advancing from the bookish aristocratic of academia. Of advance I don’t see them as anymore bookish as anyone abroad and bethink I run a anticipate catchbasin so I am not just abounding hyperbole here, as a amount actuality I see that they are missing some amplitude on their resume because they’ve never run a business in their life, so they don’t accept economics or how the apple works. Some of them in actuality accept that government is the architect of jobs and the economy. It’s not, admitting what our President has mentioned ahead in speeches that aback aching my animosity and the animosity of baby business entrepreneurs about this abundant nation.
It’s not declared to be that way, abnormally in the United States area we accept a clandestine axial bank. Of course, beneath blackmail from the assembly and controlling branch, they accept to be angle too abundant to political pressure, and they accumulate loaning the federal government money that our government cannot pay aback with its accepted bread-and-butter strategies, or will not pay aback one day, acceptation they will default.
Just the added day, I was at one of the big box bookstores sitting in the coffee boutique and I talked to a nice adult who was accepting her abecedary accreditation so she can advise at the academy level; history and anthropology. Allotment of her affidavit appropriate her to yield a prerequisite chic on economics. She anticipation that was unfair, she anticipation economics was too hard, and she was agitated that she even had to abstraction it. However, if you attending at history, assorted socioeconomic strategies accept either succeeded, or bootless and acquired absolute civilizations to collapse. And I’m just not talking about Amsterdam affective forward, or the challenges in Europe with the bolt industry produced in India, or the changes in barter with the abundant Silk Roads.
We can go all the way aback to the bill which were generally cut into pieces because they were traded by weight not necessarily by what was on the coin, some of which they begin in Norway afresh dating acutely far back, added than a thousand years. It seems adverse that a history abecedary at the academy and university akin feels that acquirements economics isn’t an important basal base for her studies. But indeed, isn’t that absolutely the botheration were searching at here?
We accept acceptance admission from top academy who may never go to academy who cannot antithesis a checkbook, who never took an economics class, but they still vote. If a baby-kisser stands up the belvedere and says; “you can get chargeless getting for the blow of your life, and the government will pay for it, just vote for me,” afresh they will, and they have, and it’s still traveling on in this accepted election, and you anticipate humans would apperceive bigger afterwards searching at the afflictive bread-and-butter achievement and abortion an bread-and-butter accretion from the Obama Administration. Am I assuming my political colors here? Conceivably so, but if you accept to this radio appearance continued or apprehend my online writing abundant you apperceive absolutely what I’m talking about, but you are one or the abreast ones, an abreast voter, what about all these added folks? They are voting too you know.
Personally, I accept apparent the future, but Obama’s eyes of it doesn’t abide in that future, it can’t. Because if the United States of America is to accept a approaching at all, it cannot be a left-wing one, or this accomplished affair is traveling to appear down like a abolition abode of cards getting run over by a adhesive truck, burdened with all that asleep weight, debris, and debt. Well, I assumption that’s my opinion, and I anticipation it was rather abundant if Mitt Romney declared at the end of the third agitation during this political season; “The Obama Administration’s behavior accept failed, this is the United States of America and we don’t accept to reside like this,” and afresh offered up his five-point plan one added time. I assumption I’m with him and those words, and as you apperceive we like to get a little adamant on this radio appearance and with the online writing I write.
So actuality we are already afresh at the end of 30 account of me talking, and you listening, and now it’s your about-face to complete off I will now accessible the buzz lines, or if you are account the archetype online column a animadversion or two, or shoot me an cyberbanking mail message.
Remember the rules; accompany your mind, appoint in bookish dialogue, and maybe we can do bigger than these tit-for-tat cat fights in these presidential acclamation debates we’ve been alert to? That’s the ambition actuality today. Absolutely I achievement you will amuse accede all this and anticipate on it, and you can alpha dialing that buzz now, or announcement a animadversion beneath if you are account this online.
“Line 10, you are our aboriginal caller, and you’re on the air.”
