Picture This: DominoCare

The Lakers Chose Mike D'Antoni Because...

Well, the possible reasons include:
  1. Kobe doesn't want Phil Jackson to coach again.
  2. Jackson made too many demands for the Lakers' Top Brass.
  3. Mike D'Antoni's style is more fast-paced, which Kobe seems to prefer.
  4. While Jackson did deal with the egos, the plays were more or less designed by Tex Winter, who is no longer around. 
  5. D'Antoni has more to prove than Jackson.
  6. D'Antoni is cheaper than Jackson.
  7. The Lakers may have had to undergo a bigger roster change with Jackson, aka, Reason #6.
  8. Jackson only likes coming in when a team is on the brink of winning a championship, and the Lakers aren't close.

How Did The Ten Richest Counties In America Vote In The 2012 Election?

Paul Krugman Really *Is* Tired Of Trying To Reason With You People

From The Man himself:

Even though preliminary estimates suggest that Democrats received somewhat more votes than Republicans in Congressional elections, the G.O.P. retains solid control of the House thanks to extreme gerrymandering by courts and Republican-controlled state governments. And Representative John Boehner, the speaker of the House, wasted no time in declaring that his party remains as intransigent as ever, utterly opposed to any rise in tax rates even as it whines about the size of the deficit.

So President Obama has to make a decision, almost immediately, about how to deal with continuing Republican obstruction. How far should he go in accommodating the G.O.P.’s demands?

My answer is, not far at all. Mr. Obama should hang tough, declaring himself willing, if necessary, to hold his ground even at the cost of letting his opponents inflict damage on a still-shaky economy. And this is definitely no time to negotiate a “grand bargain” on the budget that snatches defeat from the jaws of victory. 

This isn't because he wants to see America go off the "Fiscal Cliff," by the way. The reason is:

Because Republicans are trying, for the third time since he took office, to use economic blackmail to achieve a goal they lack the votes to achieve through the normal legislative process. In particular, they want to extend the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, even though the nation can’t afford to make those tax cuts permanent and the public believes that taxes on the rich should go up — and they’re threatening to block any deal on anything else unless they get their way. So they are, in effect, threatening to tank the economy unless their demands are met. 

Also. FYI:

It’s worth pointing out that the fiscal cliff isn’t really a cliff. It’s not like the debt-ceiling confrontation, where terrible things might well have happened right away if the deadline had been missed. This time, nothing very bad will happen to the economy if agreement isn’t reached until a few weeks or even a few months into 2013. So there’s time to bargain.

Game on, I guess?

Requiem For The Rich White Republican

Republicans Aren't Taking Reality So Well

  1. Their private bubble (where they had Romney winning by a landslide) was burst in spectacular fashion.
  2. Karl Rove, Mr. "We Won Florida in 2000 Fair & Square So Get Over It Liberals" had a political heart attack. Mainly because he took a lot of shady money from rich Republicans and didn't deliver.
  3. RedState is reacting like they normally do, TBH.
  4. The Romney Campaign was apparently hypnotized.

Here is the bottom line, GOP, as this Daily Kos diarist put it:

There are not enough angry white men left, have you got that? However there are plenty of young women to keep you out of office for the foreseeable future.

I would modify this to say: There are not enough angry heterosexual Christian white men left. Until you start accepting women, gays, Muslims, African-Americans, Latinos, bisexuals, Atheists and others, your tent will get smaller. Your fiscal and social philosophy needs to modify on a state-to-state level.

It's not because "you're not running enough conservatives." That's what the Tea Party was supposed to fix right? And they cost your party the Senate.

Oh, and stop denying reality. The fact that Team Romney skewed their own polls to the point that they though that they could encroach on fairly blue states speaks volumes. If you're listening to Glenn Beck's advice of moving to more Red States, go ahead; if you're lucky you'll bump up the electoral votes in one of the Dakotas to a whopping 6! Yay!

Seriously, folks: America is changing; it's time for the GOP to change with it.

One Reason I Don't Have Many Online Subscriptions

As a business major and recent MBA, I found myself signing up for many business-related websites. One of them was BusinessDictionary.com.

Today, I received an email from one of their sponsors, Porter Stansberry, of Stansberry Research:

Dear Reader,

Most people believe the next election is all about whether or not Obama will have a second term.


But it’s not.


The truth is, the next election has already been decided. Obama is going to win. It’s nearly impossible to beat an incumbent president.


What’s actually at stake right now is whether or not he will have a third-term.


There’s a secret to understanding how we know Obama will seek a third term. There’s a secret to how he’ll garner the power to win, yet again… and keep power through 2020 – or even beyond.


These things will change the political climate here and abroad. These new forces will increase the wealth of the United States and improve our standing in the world economy. But… in the process… they will also empower the president of the United States… perhaps enabling him to implement the most terrifying socialist policies in the history of our country.


You can access my analysis in written and presentation forms, free of charge,
here.

Sincerely,


Porter Stansberry

Founder, Stansberry Research 

Sheesh. Now both the Daily Caller and Daily Kos (no allies, mind you) call Stansberry on past and recent fraud attempts.They aren't the only ones, BTW. Which leads me to think one of two things:

  1. Business Dictionary is so desperate for cash that they'll align with this creep; or
  2. Business Dictionary doesn't vet/screen their sponsors, which is very odd considering one of the "Terms of the Day" I got from these guys dealt with ethics.
