Breakfast Scramble (Sunday)

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Who we Paleface? From Gail Collins, New York Times [1]:

As if we didn’t have enough wars, the House of Representatives has declared one against Planned Parenthood.

Maybe it’s all part of a grand theme. Last month, they voted to repeal the health care law. This month, they’re going after an organization that provides millions of women with both family-planning services and basic health medical care, like pap smears and screening for diabetes, breast cancer, cervical cancer and sexually transmitted diseases.

Since 1973, Roe v. Wade, normal pregnancy has not been a health problem, but rather a woman’s choice.    The Supreme Nine may deem a woman’s sole right to kill her unborn baby,  but by  there is not need to have a taxpayer fund a woman’s private choice.     Public funds should not be used to fund private choices.

Dumbo’s Economics,  Barack Obama seems to have invented an entirely new theory of  economics, video:

Transcript:

“If we make America the best place to do business, businesses should make their mark in America,” the president said. “They should set up shop here, and hire our workers, and pay decent wages, and invest in the future of this nation. That’s their obligation.”

Obligation!   Obligations don’t appear by magic.   Obligations are a form of contract to which a party agrees to abide.    No pers9n, not even self-proclaimed professor of constitutional law can unilaterally create an obligation.

Further, if you create a better product, people will buy the product, without duress.   It is mutual voluntary interchange.    From wherever Obama got his economic theory it was not Adam Smith, Milton Friedman, Thomas Sowell or Walter E. Williams’.   From just where did Obama concoct his theory of economics, where are it guiding principles articulated and where has the Obama theory of  economics ever been demonstrated?

Henry Ford didn’t assume that anybody has an obligation to buy his cars.   Rather, Ford assumed  that if he produced a better product at a better price, people would voluntarily buy them.  That the same way Ray Kroc  sold hamburgers.   Bills Gates software, and Thomas Edison electricity.   In short, classic economics works.   Shame Obama never studied it.

Black History Month, from Colbert I. King, Washington Post [4]:

When Black History Month was celebrated in 1950, according to State University of New York research, 77.7 percent of black families had two parents. As of January 2010, according to the Census Bureau, the share of two-parent families among African Americans had fallen to 38 percent.

What do the Reverends Sharpton  and Jackson have to say?
