Barack Obama, our next President

The difference between capitalism and betting on a rigged football game:

... The Wall Street that invented and promoted the financial products responsible for the meltdown of 2008 and is still embroiled in controversy has been promoting speculation as capitalism. When we complain about Wall Street, it’s important to distinguish between the institution that promoted a dressed up form of gambling and the Wall Street that has financed real capitalistic enterprises. It’s no accident that century-old investment houses are gone while the world’s largest marketer of hamburgers and French fries is still chugging along.

In the late 1990s, while the one-percenters of the investment world were inventing risky financial products designed to enrich their firms and selling overblown technology IPOs, Apple was struggling as a marginal player in the computer world with a cult-like customer base and no hope of ever challenging Microsoft. It was said to be doomed to be gobbled up by a bigger fish and disappear into the history books as an idealistic success but a financial failure.

Around the same time, McDonald’s was being dismissed (in the middle of the tech bubble) as a shop-worn brand that had grown as much as it could—it was just hamburgers and fries, after all. The Wall Street investment experts proclaimed that its salvation lay in growing by acquiring other faster-growing restaurant chains that could help boost the price of the company’s shares.

After spending millions on investment banking fees and then floundering around trying to make something out of Boston Market and Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), McDonald’s discovered that instead of focusing on the stock price, it could generate more profit than all those other brands combined with just a one-point increase in sales of its core business.

Today, Apple is one of the largest public companies in the world, dominating the market for phones and tablet computers, with a stock price that’s grown thousands of percent in 14 years, with no debt, and a record amount of cash in the bank.

Today, McDonald’s stock trades near an all-time high, dominates the quick-service restaurant industry, is still growing, pays a dividend that has been raised annually for 36 straight years, and employs more people than the U.S. Army.

What links these two companies together—French fries and silicon chips—is a business model that is built on hard work, innovation and paying attention to what customers wanted. That’s real capitalism. Apple has constantly improved its products, and allowed thousands of small entrepreneurs to invent applications that run on its platform. Apple is really a community of small entrepreneurial businesses working together.

McDonald’s is also made up of thousands of entrepreneurs—franchisees—who are in business for themselves but operating under the flag of a brand that is internationally recognized. Virtually all of the innovations that McDonald’s has rolled out—from drive-thru windows to fish sandwiches—were invented by franchisees, not by the corporation.

Wall Street and the financial media told the investing public for decades that capitalism was a kind of alchemy—you could make more money using mathematics and computers than you ever could risking your money in a going enterprise. That’s how we ended up with leveraged buyouts, derivatives, hedge funds and other short-term vehicles for gaming the markets—feeding off money, as Bill Gross observed.

After thirty years of trying to explain to clients why those ideas were wrong—in the face of the tech and housing manias—the last few years have proven it. The good news is that real capitalism is coming back, and America’s business leaders are starting to talk about it ...

I get it. A black man asked you if he could dance with your date and you obliged. She dumped you on the spot and subsequently married the man and is living a good life.

A majority of voters agreed with President Obama’s decision to halt deportation of young undocumented immigrants, according to a new Bloomberg Poll out Tuesday. The President made a popular move with his announcement last Friday, with 64 percent of likely voters agreeing with the new policy, while just 30 percent disagreed.

Along party lines, only Republicans disagreed the move, with 56 percent of likely GOP voters opposed to the policy. Close to 9 in 10 Democrats (86 percent) liked the move. A large majority of independents, 66 percent, backed the decision, while just 26 percent opposed it.

Thus far, the new rule has been a political win for the president, while Mitt Romney – who has refused to say whether or not he would repeal the executive action if elected – is caught between his right-wing base and alienating Latino voters. Yesterday, a Latino Decisions poll showed that enthusiasm for Obama among Latino voters jumped significantly after the announcement.

2nd Man Pleads Guilty in Texas Child Rape Case
By JUAN A. LOZANO
Associated Press
LIBERTY, Texas (AP)
"Authorities say the girl was assaulted at least five times between mid-September and early December 2010 by males ranging in age from a middle school student to a 28-year-old. Those charged included two star athletes at the local high school and adults with criminal records.
The case brought unflattering attention to Cleveland, a town of 9,000 residents about 45 miles northeast of Houston, after some residents suggested the girl was in part responsible for what happened, saying she wore makeup, looked older and wasn't properly supervised by her parents. Other community residents, as well as those outside of town, sharply criticized those suggestions.
The case also has been complicated by a belief among many in the predominantly black neighborhood where several of the suspects live that the arrests were racially motivated. All of the suspects are black, while the girl is Hispanic.
+++
WTF? Racially motivated? They're either guilty or not. The skin color of the accused is irrelevant.
the dirty little secret is that blacks and Hispanics don't much like each other....

Dreams of Empire: Have U.S. Drones Ever Killed a Non-Muslim?

The oldest and strongest form of propaganda in this country is the belief that white America has the right to dominate everyone else on the earth, and as president Obama functions as the whitest man in the country. The siren song of Manifest Destiny outlived the 19th century and is still alive now in the 21st. It has been called many things, anti-communism during the Cold War, and the war against terror now, but it all amounts to the same thing.

We are told to fear the communist, or militant Islam, or whatever the enemy du jour happens to be. The end result is the same from a people who are convinced of their own goodness and paradoxically their right to have their violent way in the world. It is never very difficult to get support for killing and maiming among people who think themselves morally superior.

http://open.salon.com/blog/chauncey_devega/20...

Who can argue against sending robots to kill foreigners? No skin off of our proverbial backs, right?

There are technologies of racism and dominance. The UAV is one of these devices.

It is important to note that the Racial State was also an imperial and colonial project. As such, rationalizations for how technology could be used to kill and oppress were a necessary part of the Racial State's bureaucracy. Consequently, there were certain weapons which were only deemed fit for killing "savages." No white man should be subject to such "dishonorable," impersonal, or "cruel" devices.

This logic is a cousin to that of American Exceptionalism. By implication, the lives of people in this country are worth more than those of human beings elsewhere.
