Fox: Obama didn’t hold his hand over his fart.

November 8, 2007,2933,304723,00.html

ALAN COLMES, CO-HOST: Illinois Senator Barack Obama finds himself at the center of yet another controversy as conservatives continue their assault on his patriotism, if you can believe that.

The Democratic presidential hopeful is captured on film at a steak fry sponsored by Iowa Senator Tom Harkin. A closer look shows that Obama, unlike his Democratic colleagues, isn’t putting his hand over his heart during the national anthem. Can you believe this? That’s an outrage.

Joining us now with reaction is the author of “Outrage”. Oh, wait a minute. What a coincidence. Former Clinton advisor — I didn’t even know that was coming — Dick Morris.

Can you believe he was — is this unbelievable? Is this going to ruin his chances politically forever or what?

DICK MORRIS, AUTHOR, “OUTRAGE”: If he’d covered his heart, he’d have covered himself.

COLMES: Oh, come on. That’s very funny, but come on.

In never before seen footage, Fox infrared video detectors show that Obama didn’t put his hand over his fart during the national anthem. Sean Hannity will have total 360 coverage at 9 Eastern.

Dick Morris said, “If you break wind during the National Anthem you are supposed to put your hand over it out of respect. Its the same as putting your hand over your heart. You should put one hand over your heart and the other over your fart.”

The photo of Obama shows both his hands folded. Morris, “He wasn’t holding his hand over his fart or his heart.” Maybe he has no heart? Obama to be named Arguido by Portuguese Police, Morris has the inside scoop.

The Portuguese police will bring in witch sniffing dogs to check Barack Obama. Dick Morris:

These are special fart sniffing dogs. They can detect a fart months afterwards. They will be given the flag used at the ceremony. If they can detect Obama’s fart on it, then he will be indicted.

His wife has said he leaves his clothes on the floor. The dogs can tell that too.

Next up on Fox, Dick Morris and his fart sniffing dogs head to Gitmo.


Census Income Inequality Graph

February 23, 2007

Figure 1 – Change in Income Inequality for Families: 1947-1998 Census.

old link, may not work:

Above is the Income Inequality Graph.

The Census page on income inequality is:

Immigration has two effects, a direct effect to increase population and a substitution effect, to substitute immigrants for births.

At a certain point, the population has to stop growing. At that point, the direct effect is zero, and every immigrant substitutes for a birth. This is simple, but key to internalize.

Fertility is below replacement in most groups in the US. This is caused by the substitution effect.The substitution effect doesn’t wait for population to reach its maximum, it starts early and is already causing fertility to be below replacement.

The causal mechanism of low fertility is lack of job security which means young adults can’t get married have kids and stay married. When young adults see that, teens
see it. The reason teens and young adults have angst, crime, drugs, is because they can’t get good jobs, get married and have kids themselves out of high school or in or just out of college.

The only society that is safe to live in is one that is child oriented. The only way a society is child oriented is if young adults have job and economic security to get married out of high school or in college and have kids while their biology tells them to.

When society takes away their job security while their biology says have kids, the mixed message results in crime, drugs, and increasing misery of all kinds.

Immigration takes away job security, that is the whole point of it.

This article originally grew out of a comment on an article by Dick Morris. Dick Morris was born in 1948 and became 21 in 1969. The all time low in income inequality was 1968. Income inequality fell during immigration restriction. After the 1965 Immigration Act it went up.

Morris thinks the reason he could have a family and a great career is he is smart and hard working. The real reason is he was born at the right time in the income inequality graph.

in Hillary v. McCain, Nader appeals right and left

February 13, 2007

Nader is not the open borders advocate that Hillary and McCain are. Nader is too smart not to see that immigration reduces wages and gives power to employers. So are Hillary and McCain for that matter. The difference is Nader tells the truth. Nader will get votes from right and left.

Where does that leave the race? The anger on the left against Hillary is white hot, but they also want to win. By 2008, we may also face a different world, one where we have gone to war with Iran or they have agreed to real inspections, disclosed their secret sites, given up their Russian anti-ship missile buying program all as part of working together with regional parties to make peace in Iraq and to get Pakistan to give up its nukes.

OK, so war is more likely. McCain is part of big immigration. He has betrayed the Republican voters as much as Bush. Republican voters have shown they will go to a Perot in 1992 and 1996. But Nader is not a Perot.

If the Republicans nominate a Tancredo, Republicans will come out and vote. But the left may also come out for Hillary.

If we are in Iran and Hillary supports it, she may lose the left, but could gain in the center. A Hillary who supports a war in Iran that is ongoing is safe for centrists. In that case, Republicans may vote for Nader instead of McCain.

If we invade Iran and Hillary opposes it, she may gain the left, but will lose the center and she will lose, whether Nader runs or not.
