Funny if not so incredibly stupid…

Awkward: Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin offers hurricane prep tips.

No, this wasn’t meant to be a joke. Although many believe the 2005 response to Hurricane Katrina was a colossal failure at every level of government, former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin appeared on MSNBC on Friday to offer preparedness advice for those in Hurricane Irene’s path.

Speaking with Martin Bashir, Nagin gave government agencies and their leaders high marks for their preparations. But he said only time will tell if the public follows their instructions.

“Competency Crisis.”

I have been of two minds on Obama since he rose to power. One says that he is in fact incompetent and is in way over his head. The other is that he is a socialist hell bent on transforming America into some European statist hell hole. Now I think that both are right…

Mortimer Zuckerman: Obama and the ‘Competency Crisis’ – WSJ.com.

It is no surprise that many have begun to doubt the president’s leadership qualities. J.P. Morgan calls it the “competency crisis.” The president is not seen fighting for his own concrete goals, nor finding the right allies, especially leaders of business big or small. Instead, his latent hostility to the business community has provoked a mutual response of disrespect. This is lamentable given the unique role that small business especially plays in creating jobs.

 

The president appears to consider himself immune from error and asserts the fault always lies elsewhere—be it in the opposition in Congress or the Japanese tsunami or in the failure of his audience to fully understand the wisdom and benefits of his proposals. But in politics, the failure of communication is invariably the fault of the communicator.

‘Go For Broke’

Interesting choice of words. I’m sure it wasn’t intentional…

NBC’s Guthrie Urges Obama ‘Go For Broke’ With New Stimulus | NewsBusters.org.

In an interview with former press secretary and current Obama campaign advisor Robert Gibbs on Sunday’s Meet the Press, substitute host Savannah Guthrie pushed the President from the left: “If the President thinks more should be done, if he thinks there should be more stimulus, why doesn’t he just go for broke? Why doesn’t he go out there and ask for it, make a case for it?”

One of a thousand such programs that are on the books I’m guessing…

Gov’t Paying Farmers, Ranchers $112M to Protect Bird Too Numerous to be Threatened | CNSnews.com.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is paying $112 million in tax money to farmers and ranchers in 11 Western states to restore the habitat of the Sage Grouse, a bird that has not been listed as either threatened or endangered under the federal Endangered Species law because the government says there are too many of them.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced last week that the USDA would dedicate $21.8 million to pay eligible ranchers and farmers in the state of Wyoming to encourage conservation practices that preserve the numbers of Sage Grouse.

That will bring to $112 million the total amount that the USDA has distributed over the last two years to eligible farmers and ranchers in 11 states as part of its Sage Grouse Initiative.

When watching any Obama speech if you want to know what he is doing just visualize the opposite of what he is saying. That should cover it…

Getting ready for a wave of coal-plant shutdowns – Ezra Klein – The Washington Post.

Over the next 18 months, the Environmental Protection Agency will finalize a flurry of new rules to curb pollution from coal-fired power plants. Mercury, smog, ozone, greenhouse gases, water intake, coal ash—it’s all getting regulated. And, not surprisingly, some lawmakers are grumbling. Industry groups such the Edison Electric Institute, which represents investor-owned utilities, and the American Legislative Exchange Council have dubbed the coming rules “EPA’s Regulatory Train Wreck.” The regulations, they say, will cost utilities up to $129 billion and force them to retire one-fifth of coal capacity. Given that coal provides 45 percent of the country’s power, that means higher electric bills, more blackouts and fewer jobs…

The Brits need to face the cultural decline they are in but so soon after the riots are mired in political correctness. David Starkey is attacked for speaking out. British society seems to be handcuffed by cultural marxism…

UK riots: It’s not about criminality and cuts, it’s about culture… and this is only the beginning – Telegraph.

We must focus on the righting of the wrong rather than the original wrong itself. The former heals; the latter divides. And we have had enough of division. There is a final point. If all the people of this country, black and white alike, are to enter fully into our national story, as I desperately hope they will, they must do so on terms of reciprocity. In other words, I must be as free to comment on problems in the black community as blacks are to point the finger at whites, which they do frequently, often with justice, and with impunity.
