Valentine’s Violence update

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

My update the other day was inspired by a conversation with another psychologist who resides in California.  He has always demonstrated superior insight and his take on things is that after the election in November when the tax hikes kick in January 1st, the economy will come to a screeching halt and there will be bodies hanging in the streets in February.

When the economy first failed, history has shown an increase in suicides on the order of 5,000 more suicides annually for each increase of 1% in unemployment.  Also, the rate of homicides appears correlated positively to the suicide rate at approximately +.50.  Hence, I expected to see an increase of roughly 2,500 murders for each 1% increase in unemployment.

But, that hasn’t happened.  Why?

Quite simply it surprised us all,  Quite pleasantly. 

It appears attributable to an increase in population age.  But, such luck and trends are not likely to hold out indefinitely.  Chronic stress leads to breakdown and dysfunction.

Perhaps this election has everyone waiting anticipating relief.  However, I doubt relief comes.  The Party’s System has a stranglehold on the US and somethings got to give.  What’s your opinion?

Governor Brewer Continues in Napolitano’s Footsteps Secrecy in State Budgeting and Lack of Accounting for Stimulus Moneys Spent in Arizona

Saturday, August 15th, 2009

 

Few people know this but a huge chunk of Arizona’s State budget is done in secret by the Governor’s office with no accountability to the people.  The Arizona Governor has long been doling out Federal funds as it wishes with no oversight, no review and in secret for years.

 

Len Munsil knows this and one of his campaign promises was to make that significant part of the State’s budget public.  But, the citizens of Arizona missed their opportunity to elect him against Napolitano.  In nutshell, the “illiberal” citizens in Arizona feared electing a man who is an “openly” Christian.*

 

True to form, Governor Jan Brewer is continuing the Napolitano legacy and her office is not making known to the public where Arizona’s Stimulus monies are being spent and what might be available for jobs and relief.

 

Because of this Jan Brewer will be a one time governor and when she finishes this appointed term, either the Republicans, or what’s left of the Republican Party in Arizona will wake up and put forward a fiscally conservative, open and more reliable candidate or lose the Governor’s office once again to the DEMONcrats.

 

*God has assured me His servant that judgment is coming upon Arizona for the people’s failures to acknowledge Him and their foolishness in re-electing Napolitano.
