Shanghai – Then & Now

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

The picture on top was taken in 1990, while the picture on the bottom was taken in 2010. What a transformation.

When The Mayor first saw this picture, the thing that immediately popped into his head was Detroit. While Shanghai has taken a broken down city and gentrified every aspect of it, Detroit has let a beautiful, vibrant city become unlivable. While some forward-thinking people of Shanghai decided to take a beaten-down city and build it up to something dynamic and magnificent, the backward-thinking troglodytes of Detroit have decided to make much of Detroit proper into farmland.

Shanghai = energetic, sparkling, electrifying.

Detroit = wants to be Kansas.

Putting On The Fritz

Remember a year ago Obama set executive pay limits for those people whose companies received federal bailout money? Well, that was sooooo February 2009:

After resigning as president and CEO of General Motors in December, Fritz Henderson might have gone into hiding or decided to sit out the harsh Michigan winter on a Florida beach.

Instead, here he is popping up again, this time as a consultant to GM on international operations at the very fancy fee of $59,090 a month for 20 hours of work a month. That works out to almost $3,000 an hour for a CEO who was ousted after just eight months on the job.

Consider that one a *job saved*. To date, the Obama stimulus has either saved or created 2 000 001 jobs.

Yet I seem to remember Obama railing against executives receiving outrageous compensations? Cue dream sequence, February 2009…

“For top executives to award themselves these kinds of compensation packages in the midst of this economic crisis isn’t just bad taste — it’s a bad strategy — and I will not tolerate it. We’re going to be demanding some restraint in exchange for federal aid — so that when firms seek new federal dollars, we won’t find them up to the same old tricks,” the president added.

Under Obama’s plan, companies that want to pay their executives more than $500,000 will have to do so through stocks that cannot be sold until the companies pay back the money they borrow from the government. The rules will be implemented by the Treasury Department and do not need to be approved by Congress.

A year ago, Obama “wouldn’t tolerate these kinds of compensation packages” for top executives, but this year he seems to be able to tolerate them just fine. You know what that means, don’t you? It means Obama has become more tolerant. And that’s a good thing. It’s a sure-fire sign of someone maturing.

To be fair though, Fritz isn’t a top executive getting over $700,000 a year for working a mere 20 hours a month, he’s a consultant who gets over $700,000 a year for working a mere 20 hours a month.

For a mere consultant to make more money than most top executives at GM, that must mean he must have a pretty solid skill-set, correct?

Although Henderson’s compensation seems a little steep, getting him back to work makes sense. Nobody ever questioned his brains or his work ethic.

And it was in-part thanks to Fritz Henderson, that even through The Worst Economic Downturn Since The Great Depression™, GM was still able to keep it’s ranking as the worlds #1  #2  #3  #4 whatever the hell it is now, car manufacturer in the world. It’s obvious that without Fritz and his mad skillz and unquestionable work ethic, GM would have been bankrupt and possibly nationalized by the Obama administration. 

Thank any God but the Christian God THAT didn’t happen.

Kind of puts “We are the President” in perspective, huh, Hillary?

Hillary Clinton loses her cool in what I saw was a “rare” loss of her temper in the headlines. Our little Hillary? The lamp-throwing, “f*cking Jew bastard” Hillary?

When a student questioned the Secretary of State what she thought President Obama thought about opening the Democratic Republic of Congo to trade with China, the translator for Clinton mistakenly stated President Clinton. So Hill-dog hit the roof, insisting that she is the Secretary of State! Look, just because Bill was asked specifically to broker the fraud handover of two Current TV reporters, then he wants to spend his 63rd birthday in Vegas rather than hang out with you in his favourite continent of Africa, is no reason at all to get those giant panties in a bunch.

Africa’s investment from China seems to have declined with the global economic downturn as well as the drop in commodity prices. All of Asia is Africa’s third largest trading partner (at 27 percent) after the European Union (32 percent) and the United States (29 percent). With the retreat of urgently needed investment and talent to Africa, the Africans are rightly concerned that the Chinese will simply abandon them, and that the Americans might be doing the same. After a meet and greet with Ms. Reset Button, the Africans will think the architects of the Tiannamen Square Massacre will seem tame by comparison.

She’s off now to Nigeria, and hopefully the devout Muslims there will be used to a loud and power-hungry woman, then it’s off to Liberia. You rememebr that part of the world, right? That’s where just last year, George W. Bush paid a visit and was welcomed warmly, mainly due to his major debt readjustment under the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPIC) Initiative, which qualified Liberia for unconditional debt relief. He also convinced their former dictator, Charles Taylor, to hightail it from Liberia into Nigeria in 2003. How is Sec. Clinton planning on promising a similar show of support with this president?

If Clinton can’t hold her tongue long enough to keep from exploding at a student asking a very innocuous question, imagine her dealing with the likes of a Charles Taylor. Being nimble is the duty of a secretary of state, and Hillary is lacking even in her husband’s charisma. Get used to being in the shadow of both him and George W. Bush for a long time.

Presidential Pwnage

Barack Obama (pbuh), speaking through his trained parrot–the lovely and talented Hillary Clinton, has given the State of Israel a list of demands for them to stop expanding Jewish communities in Jerusalem:

The statement, issued Wednesday, applies to the area known in Israel by their Biblical names, Judea and Samaria, and as the West Bank by the international community.

There are now 128 Jewish communities in these areas, with a population of almost 300,000 Jews.

Mrs. Clinton explained President Obama demands that there should be no expansion in these communities for the purpose of “natural growth.”

That would include an American demand to stop construction of kindergartens, schools and housing for young couples.

It also means that Jewish households are not to construct any additions to their houses,so, if Jewish boy and Jewish girl make sexy and Jewish girl finds herself pregnant, they are NOT ALLOWED to renovate their home and add another bedroom.

The response to this nonsense by Israeli Government Press Director Daniel Seamen, brought a big smile to The Mayor’s face when he read this this morning while gulping down a bowl of Capt’n Crunch:

“I have to admire the residents of Iroquois territory for assuming that they have a right to determine where Jews should live in Jerusalem.”

Nice try, Moslem President, better luck next time.

Even The Commies See What’s Going On

communist-america

I was sitting around constructing five year plans and reading Pravda yesterday, when I happened upon an excellent article which chronicles the demise of Capitalist America and its rapid decent into communism.

The author of the article first explains that the decent into communism first started over 20 years ago:

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy”. Pride blind the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.  

Ask the average Joe and Jane who won American Idol this year and I bet you 90% of the peoples know. Ask them who their Congressman is and most folks will look at you with that dunce look on their face.

The final punch to the neck of capitalism is the obvious one:

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison.

Then came Barack Obama’s command that GM’s (General Motor) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of “pure” free markets, the American president now has the power, the self given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will.

When ex commies start telling you how impressed they are with the rapid advance towards communism that Barack Obama has sent America tumbling into, then that should absolutely prove to  you 100%  that America is dancing its final waltz–or whatever other stupid analogy you can put in its place.

There are no ifs, and, or buts anymore, its all a matter of whens. The next step is WHEN will socialized health care become law, WHEN cap & trade will be instituted, WHEN the newspapers will be nationalized, WHEN guns will be banned, etc, etc.

If you’re interested in how and when the American banking system became a piggy bank for banker thieves, and where it’s currently headed (downhill quickly), I suggest starting on the pages of Keysers Lair. Go to his search engine and type in AIG, Goldman Sachs, etc, and prepare to spend the day there.
