I've dipped my toe into the Twitterverse.

#Julia is getting a huge amount of negative tweets... some quite funny.

here is how the new york times stock price is doing relative to murdoch's news corp (owner of the wsj starting in 2007) since 2007. these are inconvenient stock charts for keller to tell us about, so i thought i would.

i am sorry, but it appears if one is not a subscriber to stockcharts.com, these charts only show about three years. my charts went through 2006, but they won't display that way for me unless i am logged in. thus i expect you might experience the same issue. i am sorry about that. however the charts you can see since 2009 are accurate.


since 2007 simple math would say 3.2 x 100% = 320% outperformance by murdoch's news corp over the nyt from this ratio of the stock prices chart.

this is the nws stock chart since 2007.

Well, Obama may make that woman feel secure, but he disgusts, revolts and terrifies me. That kind of generalization is not smart.

My own experience is similar from when I was in Berlin in 92.

This is West Berlin in 1992:



This is East Berlin in 92:

Astonishing, but actually very simple. If no one has any incentive to work, no work is done and decay sets in. That's one important. difference between Communism/Socialism and Capitalism.

Yes, you have to acknowledge the effective destructiveness of a system that can impoverish Germans and make them live in squalor.

First the environmentalists wanted to ban paper bags because they were made from wood-----to save trees.

The plastic bag idea was their idea.

Now the 21st century environmentalists want to ban plastic bags.

Will we go back to paper bags-----or everyone having cloth bags that get dirty and contaminated
and require water and soap to wash-----if they get washed.?

The New York Times prepares its readers for the loss of Ohio.
from RedState by Moe Lane (Diary)
It’s all because of racism, of course:

But the main quarrels Democratic voters [in Jefferson County, Ohio] have with Mr. Obama have nothing to do with race. They include his rejection of one proposed route for the Keystone pipeline, a stance they say will harm this area, whose backbone, the Ohio River, is lined with metal mills and coal mines.

Oh, I’m sorry, but that was paragraph fifteen. Presumably the NYT decided that its readers weren’t going to read past paragraphs three and four:

“Certain precincts in this county are not going to vote for Obama,” said John Corrigan, clerk of courts for Jefferson County, who was drinking coffee in a furniture shop downtown one morning last week with a small group of friends, retired judges and civil servants. “I don’t want to say it, but we all know why.”

A retired state employee, Jason Foreman, interjected, “I’ll say it: it’s because he’s black.”

Entertainingly, the only Jason Foreman from that area that I could find is a guy who gave money to disgraced Republican Bob Ney – and yes, Foreman’s political affiliation is actually relevant. I mean, if I were to make a similar comment the Left would immediately assume that I was simply trying to cause trouble; it’s the presumption that this guy was a Democrat that makes the argument appear to be stronger.

But I digress. The truth of the matter is, there are a lot of reasons not to vote for Obama in 2012, and the NYT knows it. They even admit that the reasons why people won’t vote for him are not racist ones – with said admissions happening after the fold, of course. In other words, this is rear-covering by the Old Grey Lady; the main objective here is to get its readers gently accustomed to the notion that Ohio is going the way of Indiana, North Carolina… and at this rate, with Florida and Virginia to follow suit soon.

If doing that requires slandering Ohioans, so be it. After all, ever since 2010 Ohio is out of the map.
