The feds use inflation to spur the economy under the theory that no one would buy something as quickly if they knew that the price would go down soon. The fact that some things do decline over time, like the cost of calculators is a shock to some people because of the relentless advance of inflation and the continuing relocation of goal posts. Inflation is theft from the lender, investor, person who saves and should never be encouraged.
Judge - There is no inflation from fuels. Just ask the administration that took fuel out of the CPI early in Obummer's reign. That and food were taken out, which is why Obummer gets to say that inflation is low.

SLAM! BAM! Sarah Silverman. Tisk tisk you confused Leftist ingrate. – There, I said it.
Where’s the anti-bullying outcry from the Left???
I’m wondering if this “odd” student who is an “ugly person” “that she annoys people,” “attitude and how fake she is around people” is being raised by Christian parents, and embraced conservative values…
…The Left is easily annoyed by anybody not acting like them.
If so, then this certainly cannot be an anti-bullying issue or a ‘hate crime’ as the Left loves to knee-jerk scream out when it suits their agenda. It can’t because she’s a right-winger and not one of “them.”

“Really? Is this some kind of a sick, trick question?”
I don't know if you should blame the runner or his trainer. Track athletes should be trained to know that the finish line is 5 yards past the tape. Football players should be trained to know that the goal line is 5 yards past the stripe on the field. Talented athletes are, for the most part, brain dead. Nowadays, they spend a lot of wasted time planing on how they will celebrate.... IDIOTS! Can't remember his name now, but I watched an extremely talented 100 meter runner in the Olympics shatter the world record... but the idiot coasted the last 20 yards. If he would have given it all that he had for the ENTIRE race, it is not likely that his record would have ever been broken.... what an idiot. I have watched football players spike the ball on the 1 yard line and fail to score.... IDIOT! I have watched football players hold the ball out to the side only to have it slapped out of their hands on the 1 yard line, failing to score... IDIOT! I have seen football players celebrate the completion of a pass with seconds to go in a game and they celebrated the time away and lost the game... IDIOTS! An athlete shouldn't have to be trained by a coach to NOT ACT LIKE AN IDIOT.... but they do, because they are IDIOTS!
People make such mistakes from time to time. One NASCAR race had Mark Martin in the lead, and he pulled into the winners circle before finishing the race, assuming he had won.
As he declared "I can sum it up this: STUPID." He only blamed himself and no one else.
White people are so stupid.

He IS white! 1/2 white! Which half, we'll never know!
Shoot, Obama would be dead last anyways...
It's just the new millennial democrat idiot sharing his first place with others.

Zero Tolerance Bots
 April 9, 2015 at 2:39am
The “Zero Tolerance Generation” has graduated and are now young adults who, as predicted, are clueless on how to think past what they were not taught… to critically think on their own.
As a Cancer Survivor with cancer still in my family, I know the amazing pain this is…but here’s what I also know…it seems like the GENERATION of kids now coming to work have NO ability to “walk and chew gum” they cannot think for themselves.. I know I am not the only one to notice this. I spend a lot of my time trying to explain things that should be “rote” to otherwise very intelligent people !
GOD BLESS YOU RACHAEL BRUNO, continued recovery!!
In this awesome Obama economy, you need a job. I've no doubt these people were told, "No hats, period!" If an employee let someone through with a hat on, they'd probably get fired. So the safest choice is to stick to the rules. They can't fire you for following the rules, and it forces management to see the stupidity of zero tolerance rules. I should know, I've done it frequently in my line of work, even costing the company hundreds of thousands of dollars because they said "Do this or else," so I did it, even though I knew it was stupid and would bite us in the oshiri.
BINGO. Common sense has to apply.
Don't worry,if all this turns out to be another civil war, they will be without the ability to fight because they were not taught how to survive. They will have about a twenty second life expectancy.
“It is unfortunate that our door greeters and managers decided to enforce our dress code under your current condition,”
It's unfortunate you put the greeter in that position.
So, the company makes a stupid rule, could fire an employee for not following it, then criticizes him for following it.
Graceless. Everyone including the patient have an over inflated sense of entitlement. 1st the entertainment center for having a code that isn't explained enough for the management to make an exception because of a rule, 2nd that after an explanation by the guest, managers couldn't bend the dress code enough to make the guest comfortable and 3rd, Rachel Bruno made it into 15 minutes of fame requiring a public apology, why ? She felt entitled to one, look at me I'm offended and everyone look at the offender and just how offended and victimized I am. Is there a reason for the dress code, maybe blocking someone's view of the entertainment at the entertainment center? I'm sorry you have no hair and your head is cold. Don't go where you are uncomfortable. If the staff were rude it is your right not to do business with them, if you were rude it's there right to ask you to leave. Grow up and don't go where you are not wanted. Just like the movies have ratings that you may discern if they will offend you, but sometimes the subject matter isn't what you expect and you leave. If you are orthodox jew, you don't go into a pancake house and get offended by the smell of bacon cooking.
Zero tolerance means no critical thinking needed. Door greeter should have asked for a management decision.
I get the feeling that the greeter would have underwent punishment should he not have had zero tolerance on the policy.
Combine the “zero tolerance” crowd, with the “entitlement” crowd, and we will see so many more instances like this.
Rachel – sorry about your cancer, but you have options – wear a wig, wear a scarf, or just go bald. The facility absolutely should allow their staff to make judgement calls, and should not throw them under the bus if they mess it up (or if they follow the rules to the letter). Everyone handled everything badly here.
But the girl loses all sympathy by taking this public, replete with the obligatory hospital picture. It was not personal, and she is not the only special little snowflake out there – everyone has a story. Is a lawsuit to follow, or is she just hoping to whip up some sympathy for a gofundme page?
You are EXACTLY right, FJ. As a 30 year old, Zero Tolerance was just becoming a thing when I was in school. Now, I'm surrounded by my peers and generations after me who quite literally cannot think for themselves or understand the concept that one size policies DO NOT fit all people! It's heartbreaking, really.
It's not Zero Tolerance, it's inability to think independently after heavy indoctrination. The kid probably has a Masters in Art or Literature and can't get a real job.
"In this awesome Obama economy" What part of Bush Jr. running the US economy into the worst situation it faced since the Great Depression you didn't get. He left office and handed the PRESIDENT a $1.2 trillion annual deficit runrate (2009 Bush Jr's last FY). Here is a little history lesson for you. It took the stock market 24 years (that's 20 +4) to return to the pre Depression levels. And if you study the economy at all you will see that the two longer term issues that hinder our economy are stagnant wages since the 1980's and the concentration of wealth, which together decrease consumption and demand. This is why smarter CEO's, cities and states are raising the minimum wages. As it is demand that creates jobs, not the wealthy. They merely invest in companies to meet the demand and of course make more than the people actually doing the work.

Zippy, Yes tons of proof, but not going to provide it here. How about you focusing like a laser beam and research the topic yourself? Be ready to change your opinion IF you genuinely concerned for the wellbeing of of many children caught up in CPS.
*Read below that CPS was shadowing the police. That’s what they do. Cops working in conjunction, many not realizing how bad CPS is while they force their way into families and rip innocent from the innocent. To the cops it’s all being done legit. There are needs for CPS but not here
I can tell you are a pro(re)gressive in that you straw manned my post.
- Where did I say ALL? I didn’t. Of all agencies doesn’t mean all CPS (reading comprehension plays a key role here)
- State supreme courts I referred to means CPS is a state agencies and are nationwide.
Your pro(re)gressive tactics won’t work with me or the readers here. Try your progressive neighbor.
* “Footage shows two deputies restrain Deanna Robinson during the March 4th incident as they accompanied Child Protective Services to her parents’ home to remove the 38-year-old’s 18-month-old son Landry over allegations of of abuse.”
 April 8, 2015 at 1:08am
Child Protective Services (CPS) Is one, if not THE WORST, CORRUPT, OUT of CONTROL agency of all agencies! And it’s nationwide. They are a HUGE AGENCY within a SYNDICATE. They hire within the agency all the defense attorneys, counselors, doctors, and judges. State supreme courts don’t have power over them. No one does.
Self contained, self funded through receiving MASSIVE FUNDING through the intake of lots of children (up to age 18, even age 21 are caught) – that’s CPS’s commodity and meal ticket: Children.
From tens of thousands of tax dollars they receive to hundreds of thousands and upwards to a million dollars received for ONE CHILD …depending on how many tests, counselors, doctors working are creative. – A BIG GOV machine.
CPS personnel are self policed and held accountable to no one. It’s a vicious circle AND NEVER try to take them on alone. Retain the best, nastiest PRIVATE CPS attorney you can find! Don’t cut corners. It’s immeasurable they damage they cause society.
Then there’s the many abuses and deaths to children in their custody and foster homes.
This top of the heap government crime syndicate can be as is released on the family with an anonymous lie via phone tip by any nasty person who feels they have been slighted, are holding a grudge, jealous, envious, politics, religion, money. Hate filled creeps… or a family member, or sibling looking for attention, getting back at a parent or… or… or yet where is the hard hitting media exposing these CRIMES
Once again... There seems to be FAR more to this story than is being revealed.
Do you have any actual proof to substantiate your serious accusations against ALL Child Protective Services?
And if you hadn't noticed... This story indicated it was a police deputy that is accused of abusing the woman. Very little additional CRITICAL detail was given as to why CPS initiated the action in the first place.
They are investigating to see if any policy violations were broken. We must abide by laws and they have policies that seem to generally have no consequences. Where can we find this list of policies? It just seems like police policies vary department to department. And the policies aren't exactly always legal. The way I see it, the story on the cop charged with the murder of Mr Walter Scott violated a dept policy by letting someone film the shooting and the planting of the evidence next to the dead body. The cop violated one policy (didnt confiscate the vid) while performing another (planting the evidence to cover his aspirin).
Bend over, reality check incoming...
What organization specifically are you referring to? There is no federal agency specifically for CPS. That's a function handled at the state level. Perhaps in this case you mean CPS division of Texas Department of Family and Protective Services?
While CPS and its parent agencies have their share of issues, your post here over-exaggerates in the classic Blaze wingnut style. It's all there - blanket accusations, unsubstantiated claims, demonstrably false statements, right down to the annoying use of caps lock key.
Americas politicians are out of control
now government agencies are progressively becoming out of control.
Buy many Guns and Tons of Ammo, we are at war with government.
Please give names and numbers it's not that i trust any government agency but i would like more then accusations
Another victim of child protective services.......but politicians keep funding them and raising taxes.
If CPS ever forced their way into my house or that of my family's the result would lead to a large exodus of CPS workers. Not to mention local sheriff offices everywhere would think twice before getting involved in their illegal activities.
They then take custody of the children and adopt them out of state to LGBT couples. Disgusting. I know a mom couple who has a couple of cute kids from WA or OR.
Immeasurable damage is done by removing infants from their mothers. This is insane. CPS harms more than it helps. We need child protective services closed in all 50 states and this police force sending countless officers to strip a woman of her child? They should be so proud. This police force disgusts me and the tax payers should strip funding.
Not EVERY CPS case is a crime against families and decent folks everywhere. No defense for the treatment of a pregnant woman, but rather a couple anecdotes for reference.
CPS didn't see for to take a couple kids from a home where they slept on soiled mattresses, where the carpets were matted with fecal matter and urine from dogs and children. The home was infested with bugs, the walls stained from cigarettes, pot and meth smoking. There was food in the house, but the food in the fridge was mostly model covered and the food in the cabinet was bugs. Mom and Dad would have various others, male and/or females, over for fun time. Often the children would inadvertently witness after noise and commotion would wake them up in the middle of the night. Mom smoked meth constantly, just to get through the day. CPS paid numerous visits to the house and hospital after "falls". The kids were never pulled. And now what? Dad or some other random is sexually abusing the kids.
CPS? We can't break up the family.
Those kids would be better off with a San Fransicko gay couple than with their degenerate parents.
Another government nanny state racketeering vehicle I was not aware of. If I were the father, RIP for those thugs.
Ron Paul is right, we have to take our Country back from the lifelong career corrupt lawyers posing as our "elected public servants" that have raped our once free Constitutional Republic.
That is the big problem, they get funding based on the number of children in their care, and not in the effective protection of said children. They take children based upon hearsay and tips without proof. Basically from the "we need to protect the children from any and all abuse, real or imagined.). A while back when I was in Florida there were two instances, one involved abused children (medical proof along with eye witnesses) and the children died because CPS did not want to take the children; and the other where they took them (for good cause) and the judge kept giving them back to the parents. Those kids also were killed and then the judge yelled at CPS about "why didn't you do anything?". The entire system needs to be dismantled and rebuilt without all the BS currently in it.
You do not treat a symptom without also treating the cause!

What is this President, the 2009 Nobel Peace Price winner for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples, including special importance to his vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons up to lately?
“Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future.” – 2009 Nobel Prize Committee
Kick him a little lower as well for me. I don't believe any of these guys any longer. They are all selling their souls for the almighty dollar and the country be damned.
Glenn hit it square on the head that Norquist is a dangerous "Agent of Influence". I didn't buy his ignorance defense. He says the guys were "ok" because they were already at the Pentagon or State Department. How did they get in there Grover? Because of influence peddlers like YOU opening up doors and vouching for them. It scares the hell out me that influence is so easily bought in Washington that you can have terrorists with access at the highest levels. I believed Glenn before about radicals and anti-americans with government access (just look at who are our President's advisors) , but how many more are out there that our elected officials look the other way on?
I am going to tell my gun club (which requires NRA membership) that if Grover N. stays in the NRA, I will not.
