New Word Inspired by the Obama Administration
But there are Obama CLAWS.
But there are Obama CLAWS.
By popular request, a rerun of last night’s thread:
For those who may not be familiar:
He began his career playing guitar in the band Bloodline, which also featured the offspring of Miles Davis, Robby Krieger of The Doors, and Berry Oakley of The Allman Brothers Band. He released his first solo album A New Day Yesterday in 2000, and has since released nine more solo studio albums, six live albums and nine live DVDs, along with three albums with the band Black Country Communion, one with funk super-group Rock Candy Funk Party and two albums in collaboration with vocalist Beth Hart. He tours the world regularly, and has developed a large following in the U.S. and U.K. His most recent album, Driving Towards The Daylight, reached #2 on the U.K. Top 40 Albums Chart, and he completed an arena tour there in 2012. In 2009 he was the recipient of the Classic Rock Magazine “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” award, and The Guardian said of him: “the 35-year-old from upstate New York has consolidated a reputation as the pre-eminent blues-rock guitarist of his generation”.
Bonamassa has collaborated with numerous artists, including B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Blondie Chaplin, Beth Hart, Paul Rodgers, Leslie West, Jon Lord, Vince Gill, Sandi Thom and Glenn Hughes. He also played with Hughes in Black Country Communion, along with Jason Bonham and Derek Sherinian.
Without further ado, we present: Joe Bonamassa at the Royal Albert Hall
Okay…that’s enough football for one day. How about some music, instead?

It’s Conference Championship Week! (And I have to work till 2000 )
No. 3 Auburn (11-1, 7-1 SEC) earned its trip to Atlanta with one of the most remarkable victories in college football history, returning a missed field goal 109 yards for the winning touchdown on the final play to beat two-time defending national champion Alabama 34-28. (Somehow, these Tigers managed to surpass their previous Miracle on the Plains, the 2-week-old “Immaculate Deflection” victory over Georgia.)
Meanwhile, fifth-ranked Missouri (11-1, 7-1) locked up the SEC East by holding off Texas A&M and reigning Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel 28-21 on Saturday, showing off a stout defense that helped push those Tigers to the top of the division in a year when traditional powerhouses Georgia and Florida were plagued by injuries and failed to meet expectations.
What a change from Missouri’s debut season in the SEC, when Pinkel’s team went 5-7 and won just two conference games after moving over from the Big 12….
If the Seminoles defeat surprising Duke in the Atlantic Coast Conference title game, as expected, and Ohio State stays perfect with a victory over Michigan State in the Big Ten championship game, those teams would likely meet for the BCS title.
Auburn isn’t giving up, though, already lobbying for a spot in Pasadena if it knocks off Missouri at the Georgia Dome.
“I feel like we are destined to finish very strong,” safety Jermaine Whitehead said.
Missouri believe it deserves a shot at the national title if it beats Auburn.
“Any one-loss team in the SEC (should be considered) just because of the strength of schedule,” Pinkel said. “Hopefully that will be taken into consideration.”
Neither Ohis State or FSU would be undefeated if they were in the SEC. If they are both in the National Championship game, its further reason for a playoff. Thankfully this mess will be fixed next year with a 4 team playoff.

While lurking on The Blogmacracy this morning, I saw that Mike C. suggested that we have a gun thread about the “Great Guns & Ammo Panic of 2013”. So here it is.
This past summer I was sitting in the waiting room of the Grease Monkey lube shop in Clovis, NM while my oil was being changed. I picked up the current issue of Guns & Ammo magazine and the cover story was “G&A Perspective: Panic Purchases and the Volatile Ammo Market”. The article explored the various theories on the empty ammo shelves at gun shops and the resulting spike in prices of the most common calibers as well as the shortage of AR-style rifles. The conclusion was that gun ownership has now gone mainstream due to the gun control efforts of Obama and his democrat cohorts. People who have never considered owning a firearm have now armed themselves and are taking to the ranges. Many people are hoarding ammo. All ammo manufacturers are currently running at maximum output having added more capacity and round-the-clock shifts.
Oops…somehow this Caturday story wasn’t posted last week…

Lets put an end to Comet ISON.
From our Friends at Spaceweather.com
THE GHOST OF COMET ISON: This morning, Dec. 6th, leading researchers from the Comet ISON Observing Campaign (CIOC) held an informal workshop at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab. One of the key questions they discussed was, Did Comet ISON survive? It might seem surprising that anyone is still asking. After all, the “comet” that emerged from the sun’s atmosphere on Thanksgiving day appeared to be little more than a disintegrating cloud of dust. This movie from the STEREO-A spacecraft (processed by Alan Watson) shows the V-shaped cloud fading into invisibility on Dec. 1st:
The answer hinges on the contents of that cloud. Is it nothing more than a cloud of dust–or could there be some some fragments of the disintegrated nucleus still intact and potentially active?
A key result announced at the workshop comes from SOHO, the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory. According to the spacecraft’s SWAN instrument, the comet stopped producing so-called Lyman alpha photons soon after its closest approach to the sun. Karl Battams of the CIOC explains what this means: “Without getting technical, Lyman-Alpha is a consequence of sunlight interacting with hydrogen, and if we are not seeing that interaction then it means that the levels of hydrogen (and hence ice) are extremely low. This is indicative of a completely burned out nucleus, or no nucleus at all.”
“The evidence appears strong that at some point approaching perihelion – whether days or hours – Comet ISON likely began to completely fall apart,” he continues. “What remains of ISON now is going to be either just a cloud of dust, or perhaps a few very depleted chunks of nucleus. Either way, it’s not going to flare up at this point and we should assume the comet’s show is over.”
“However, we do need to verify this,” says Battams. “Hopefully the Hubble team can come to the rescue! In mid-December, Hubble will be pointed in the direction of where ISON should be and they’ll try and image something. If no fragments are surviving, or they are tiny, then Hubble will not be able to find anything, but that negative detection will tell us something: namely that ISON is indeed gone for good.”
I’m sorry for all sports fans out there. I’m ignorant on sports, but even I can see this guy is totally uninformed and idiotic. He spouts off incorrect sports statements in order to sound cool. How does this even start to qualify him?
However the people who laughed at Obama better watch out now. I see IRS audits in their future. Also, since when does the President of the United States have policy meetings with Hollywood?
If you have any doubt as to how much of a sports junkie Barack Obama is, check in with the entertainment moguls who attended a private briefing with the president Nov. 26 before his speech at Jeffrey Katzenberg’s DreamWorks Animation campus in Glendale.
At the end of the conversation — which touched on a myriad of topics, from piracy to Iran — Obama revealed what’s at the top of his bucket list post-White House: “At least I know what I want to do when I retire … host ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 list,” Obama quipped as he turned to Disney’s Robert Iger, whose empire includes ESPN.
The highlights countdown can feature everything from major sports to bull fighting to high school basketball. Other than having a good laugh, Iger apparently didn’t respond.
“Everyone had a good giggle,” says one person who attended.
The private meeting with Iger featured other moguls, including Disney’s Alan Horn, Fox’s Jim Gianopulos, Sony’s Amy Pascal, and CBS’ Leslie Moonves.
In a polished speech before the entire DWA staff and others in attendance, Obama praised the entertainment industry as an “engine” of the economy and as part of America’s “diplomacy.” He also joked that his ears were the inspiration for the studio’s Shrek.
Obama’s appearance at DWA wrapped up a two-day trip to Southern California that included two fundraising events, one at the home of Magic Johnson and his wife, Cookie, and the other at the home of Haim Saban and his wife, Cheryl.
More Hollywood Obama insanity. Talking job creation with Hollywood? He’d be better served talking to the Oil companies in North Dakota.
Execs from Warner Bros., Fox, Sony Entertainment, Universal, Lucasfilm, Lionsgate, CBS and Paramount have reserved seats at the Glendale studio.
Hollywood’s top execs have reserved space to hear President Obama talk about job creation at Jeffrey Katzenberg’s DreamWorks Animation studio today.
Obama is en route to the studio now after stopping at Toll Middle School in Glendale, according to a pool report.
Of the 68 chairs in the audience, there are seats marked for new Universal Filmed Entertainment chairman Jeff Shell, NBCUniversal vice chairman Ron Meyer, NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt, Paramount vice chairman Rob Moore, Sony Pictures chairman/CEO Michael Lynton and co-chairman Amy Pascal, CBS Corp. president/CEO Leslie Moonves, Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara and Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer.
People started arriving at the Glendale location around 8 a.m. today, with a visible Secret Service and LAPD presence in the area, including bomb-sniffing dogs.
President Obama will speak at a stage set up in the central oak tree-shaded courtyard. DreamWorks Animation employees are standing directly in front of the stage. Elected officials and studio heads are sitting in wooden folding chairs to the left.
Death and taxes are, of course, inevitable. Death is unchanged, it never stops. Taxes on the other hand, while inevitable, can be changed. Taxes can be written in such a way as to promote growth and spending can be curbed so that the State government isn’t always looking for more ways to get blood out of a stone.
This map is interesting, it gives us a nice snapshot:
Lower taxes are not the only thing that determines employment, see this map. There is correlation, but it isn’t as strong as I thought it would be. Of course there is one major item missing from both of these maps, regulation. Here is the most recent map from BLS.
I was unable to come up with a map that showed total regulation by state or by complexity. I wouldn’t even know where to begin on how to define that one. We can assume that regulations cost companies money so it is in fact a tax.
Below is a table of GDP per capita by state. Visit the link to move the rows around to get the complete picture.
per capita ($)
|35||District of Columbia||104,700||0.72||0.6||174,500||1|
While we are comparing states and their economics, lets look at debt by state. This is by percentage of State Product and not as a total because some economies are larger than others.
What we see here is that it is not just taxes that have an impact on economic performance. There are 50 different laboratories out there. Some get it right, some don’t.
