Cocoa Beach Air Show 2011 part 3

Scenes from the Cocoa Beach Air Show, November 6th, 2011


There are only two possible outcomes: (1) Krugman approves and Murphy gets the chance to engage in an open and honest debate about economic policy while delivering a huge bag of money to a food bank’s doorstep, or (2) Krugman disapproves and we reveal a redistributionist as hypocritical.

Ron Paul QE3 Predictions Are Already Proving to be Correct

It hasn’t even been a month yet since the Fed made their QE3 announcement, but Paul’s Austrian-based analysis would suggest that it will only continue to make things worse. By further devaluing the dollar, buying up near-worthless debt, and keeping interest rates near zero, the Fed is sending terrible signals to the economy while simultaneously not allowing the debt and malinvestment to be liquidated. Without this necessary correction, true economic production and growth can not be achieved. Paul’s recommendation of a “strong dollar and market interest rates” is once again being unheeded.

What's the definition of insanity again?

CBO raises estimate of those hit by Obama health care tax

Congress‘ official scorekeeper said Wednesday that 30 million people will be uninsured when President Obama’s health care law goes fully into effect, including six million Americans who are expected to pay a tax penalty — about two million more than originally forecast when the law was passed in 2010.

Demanding justice from Libya, Egypt and Pakistan

You and I have been reminded that our enemies are relentless, but we were also reminded that our so-called allies are often not acting like allies at all. We send billions of taxpayer dollars abroad and what do we get in return? Disrespect, disdain and, ultimately, violence.

The time has come for the United States to leave the Middle East

What does the United States stand to gain by sending dollars, soldiers, and resources to countries like Libya, or so-called allies like Egypt and Pakistan? You will continue to find an army of Washington experts who insist America must remain heavily engaged in the Islamic world, lest we risk ruin. But what these experts fail to recognize is that U.S. involvement in the Middle East has produced nothing but ruin for nearly a half-century.

Obama wins right to indefinitely detain Americans under NDAA

Last week, a federal judge ruled that an temporary injunction on section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 must be made permanent, essentially barring the White House from ever enforcing a clause in the NDAA that can let them put any US citizen behind bars indefinitely over mere allegations of terrorist associations. On Monday, the US Justice Department asked for an emergency stay on that order, and hours later US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit Judge Raymond Lohier agreed to intervene and place a hold on the injunction.

So Obama signs the NDAA into law but talks about how he opposes this particular provision. But later he sues to keep the provision in place? And people believe anything this man says?

How QE3 Will Make The Wealthy Even Wealthier While Causing Living Standards To Fall For The Rest Of Us

The money for QE3 is being created out of thin air and this round of quantitative easing is going to be “open-ended” which means that the Federal Reserve is going to keep doing it for as long as they feel like it. But is this really good for the average American on the street? No way.

Because this is open ended, it's more like QE infinity... Yay!

Ron Paul Says QE3 Will Lead to a Worse Economic Crash Than What We Saw in 2008

“No one is surprised by the Fed’s action today to inject even more money into the economy through additional asset purchases. The Fed’s only solution for every problem is to print more money and provide more liquidity. Mr. Bernanke and Fed governors appear not to understand that our current economic malaise resulted directly because of the excessive credit the Fed already pumped into the system.

“For all of its vaunted policy tools, the Fed now finds itself repeating the same basic action over and over in an attempt to prime the economy with more debt and credit. But this latest decision to provide more quantitative easing will only prolong our economic stagnation, corrupt market signals, and encourage even more misallocation and malinvestment of resources. Rather than stimulating a real recovery by focusing on a strong dollar and market interest rates, the Fed’s announcement today shows a disastrous detachment from reality on the part of our central bank. Any further quantitative easing from the Fed, in whatever form, will only make our next economic crash that much more serious.”

Obama's NDAA Law Allowing Indefinite Military Detention of Citizens Ruled Unconstitutional

They argued that the phrasing of the law, which allows for the detention of anyone who has “substantially supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners,” is so broad that in infringes on their own first-amendment rights.

Judge Katherine Forrest, a recent Obama appointee to the federal bench, was clearly sympathetic, and granted a preliminary injunction of the offending sections of the law.

Does stringent security make the Sept. 11 memorial safer—or a hassle to visit and an infringement on our civil liberties?

Eleven years after 9/11 and a year after the memorial opened, it’s time for a freedom-loving people to consider the purpose and impact of such security measures. Let’s ask the experts—and ourselves—three questions. Is enhanced security necessary at the memorial? Are the specific measures in place likely to be effective? And what is their cost to a free society?

The terrorists attack us "for our freedom" yet every day we are less free. At least I still have the freedom not to go...for now.

In 2003 Joan Langbord and two other family members opened a safety deposit box that belonged to Langbord’s father, Philadelphia coin dealer Israel Switt, and found the valuable collection. When they asked the Philadelphia Mint to authenticate the find, the coins were apparently seized without compensation and taken to Fort Knox.

Bernanke to Congress: We're Much Closer to Total Destruction Than You Think

Bernanke explained that the Congressional Budget Office’s calculations miss an important reality. As the government’s debt and deficits rise, the economy will slow down—an effect not taken into account by the CBO. So, for instance, when the CBO says that federal spending for health-care programs will roughly double as a percentage of GDP in the next 25 years, it is probably being too optimistic. If debt keeps, rising, GDP will be much lower than the CBO estimates—which will mean that health care spending will be a much larger percentage of the overall economy.

Details of the Auto Bailout You Won’t Hear in Charlotte

But an informed citizenry should insist on a proper accounting of the costs of those policies, as well—not just the losses put on the taxpayers’ tab (right now taxpayers’ “investment” in GM is $27 billion, but the public’s 500 million shares of GM stock is worth only $10 billion), but the unseen costs.

Sure some jobs were preserved in some locations, but what about the less visible consequences and ripple effects? What isn’t so easily seen, but is every bit as important to assessing the auto interventions is the effects on the other auto companies and their workers (i.e., the majority of the U.S. auto industry).

Former Sen. Chris Dodd Calls Ron Paul Plan For Internet Freedom "Dangerous"

Paul’s plan, which he calls “The Technology Revolution,” would ban the government from regulating the Internet in any way. But Dodd, who now works as Hollywood’s top lobbyist, cautioned that such a system would make it impossible to protect creative property, including films.

“It’s dangerous,” he continued. “It would be dangerous for the Internet.”

First of all, it would in no way be "dangerous" for the internet. Second, copyright infringement should be a civil matter, not one that Hollywood lobbies our government to spend tax dollars on.
