Ill. Primary Reflection That Doesn’t Reflect Well

Santorum got the poor evangelical vote but few other demographic groups.  One fascinating metric is that he did better with people who think the economy isn’t getting better, and Romney did better with those who think it is.

This initially seemed counter-intuitive,  as one would have thought that those who needed the economy to improve would lean towards the business oriented Romney.

However, after thinking it through,  it actually makes sense, as (and this is harsh, sad, and true) the poor, poorly educated and less employable take refuge in Santorum’s bigotries.

LK’s “AM 970 The Apple” PodKast-The 3/5/12 Show

Before getting started, LK wants to thank you for putting the show in or near the top 10 shows nation-wide for its entire duration on TalkStreamLive.com this morning.  It’s much appreciated.

On today’s show, LK:

De-mystifies the Greek debt debacle and makes it clear that the Credit Default Swap mess that threatens to bring down Europe and played a big part in bringing down Lehman Brothers is nothing but a bunch of bookies/bankers who can’t pay off winning bets.  For once, it’s the bookies/bankers who need their knees broken.

Points out that the Chinese are cleaning our clocks in a way that’s eerily similar to how we brought down the Soviet Union in the ’80′s.

Suggests that no one give up a job they hate in search of greener pastures just yet (don’t stop looking, just don’t give up the bird in the hand), because it’s a misconception to believe that the better economic numbers mean that the coast is clear.

Chastises the NFL players, disses Santorum (like shooting fish in a barrel of contraceptives), takes 30 seconds instead of the 2 full shows it takes other hosts to reconcile the rush from Rush, and declares the Republican quest for the nomination close to a done deal for Romney now that Ted Nugent’s endorsed him.  Cat Scratch Fever, Mitt’s new campaign theme song.

Talks with Dr. John Palumbo about the folly of Afghanistan and the pursuit of inner peace.

Have a ball.

LK’s “AM 970 The Apple” PodKast-The 2/27/12 Show

Sleight of hand (and mind) distractions abound as the Oscars and the NBA All Star Game attempt to sedate LK and his audience, but they weren’t falling for it:

Rick Santorum wanting to “throw up” made LK want to throw up (and the Rickster got his just desserts last night in AZ and MI).

Johnson & Johnson and Google are both members in good standing of the evil empire of sovereign corporations.

The Mad Max movies continue to be the blueprint for the slow but steady breakdown of society as we know it.

Obama apologizes and the Afghans riot in a further display of his impotency and their irrationality.

All presented with as much good cheer and resilience as a realist can muster.

Enjoy.

Take one part rising gas prices, one part Iranian rumblings, and one part municipalities going broke, and LK sees a Mad Max environment right around the corner.

He also sees the Republicans self-destructing while the Dems and Prez O put lipstick on pigs and hope we invite the pigs to the prom.

The sovereign nation of China is hacking into whatever it feels like hacking into, with little or no resistance, while the sovereign nation of Google does the same.

Dr. John declares war on the war on drugs, and takes Syria to task for its cyber-treachery.

Happy President’s Day.  George and Abe are turning in their graves after checking out the news on their iPads.

The UFC, er, Republicans In Vegas

Random thoughts on the atrocity in Lost Wages:

I was waiting for the bald guy who runs the UFC to come out and sign Romney and Perry to a match.  Wouldn’t be surprised if he shows up on SNL to do so in a skit.

Herman’s been real good at solving problems in his business career.  He’s horrible at explaining his solutions on a national stage.  His takes on OWS and the unemployed being problems and not victims were surreal.

Newt had the highest IQ on stage and would probably be the most productive president, but he’s a case study in over-packing one’s baggage.

Ron Paul should be the new Sec’y of Liberty and Constitutional Adherence, which would create another department he’d immediately abolish.

Rick Perry never ceases to look like a kid’s toy waiting for a big key to be inserted into the middle of its back to keep it wound up.

Bachmann is an embarrassment to the nation, the party, and the political process.

Santorum’s getting up a head of steam for 2020.

Huntsman boycotted and McCotter bowed out because the media won’t cover even the smartest guy in the room if he’s bald, which left us with a mean IQ south of the electrified border fence.

Net result may well be Jeb Bush entering later in the process and winning the nomination and the presidency.  Rand Paul starts a third party and runs in 2016 or 2020 the latest.

Jitter Nation-LK’s WOR BroadKast 7/11/11

LK is acutely aware that the citizens of the United State of America are on pins and needles. The economy sucks, lives, limbs, and dollars are being lost overseas, and our leaders are deaf, blind, and very very dumb.

Here’s the link.

Dr. John or Ron Paul; You Decide

LK here.  The following transcript of Dr. John’s rant last night was delivered on air at around 7:25pm EST.  There’s no way that Ron Paul, in the live Republican debate that followed at 8:00pm EST, might have been influenced by the piece.  Is there?

Here’s an idiotic question I saw in the CNN poll this morning.  “Is it time for the US to pull out of Afghanistan?”  HAHAHAHAHA!  The poll numbers indicate that 83% of Americans said – to use a Palin-ism,  “You betcha.”

We should also leave Pakistan, any military interest in Bahrain, Syria, Libya, and basically anyplace that is NOT the US!  I need to repeat… IT AINT WORKING!!!! We are not responsible for multi-culturizing the friggin world!!!!  Even China is realizing that it’s not getting much help from its new friends. Pakistan’s prime minister, Yousaf Raza Gilani, may have embarrassed the United States by praising China to the skies during a recent visit. But he also embarrassed Beijing by asserting that China has offered to build a naval base for Pakistan at Gwadar, close to the Gulf of Oman, to which China would have access. While this was probably an exaggeration, according to the Times, it touched Indian nerves.  Plus, China’s got its own problems as the Arab Spring seems to be spreading, sending hundreds of migrant workers into the streets rioting to the extent that the Chinese cops had to roll out their tanks and other people- muffle stuff to break it up.

So, how long ya think before China realizes that these lunatic fanatics are probably not the best guys to have on your side?  China is smart… ain’t they?  I mean I thought they were smart.  They invented spaghetti for god sake.

It must be, then, a scam.  China trying to make the US jealous.  Right?  And guess what?  As long as we play kissy face with the mutts in any of the “stans,” China is going to keep playing the new lover.

What part of all this do the geniuses in DC not get?  Want to start climbing out of the fiscal nightmare?  Stop the wars.  Want to stop killing our young men and women who are dying for absolutely no reason?  Stop the wars.  You know what?  The guy who is going to win the next presidential election is the guy who records this show and repeats this piece verbatim.  Troops home to protect our borders, take our noses out of everyone’s business and rebuild what Bush and Obama have destroyed.

Never gonna happen.  Obama is a nice guy, but just a windbag.  An intellectual windbag, but a windbag just the same.  Bush and his crew should be tried as war criminals, but that ain’t gonna happen either.  So where are we?  Where is our choice, our input to salvage our beloved country?  Voting?  For who?????

The only guy saying anything close to getting out of there is Ron Paul and the powers that be will destroy him in a heartbeat by presenting him as another version of Ross Perot, which he may well be.  The latest CNN poll tells us that Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin – who hasn’t even declared yet -  are at the top of the heap.  They are followed by also undeclared Rudy Giuliani. Then in a breathtaking tie is the guy who was in charge of Godfathers Pizza and crazy Newt Gingrich.

The only sort of good news is that Crazier-than-Newt, Michelle Bachmann is down in the basement with Tim Pawlenty and Homophobe, Rick Santorum.

Feeling sick in your tummy?  Kurt Vonnegut said, “There is a tragic flaw in our precious Constitution, and I don’t know what can be done to fix it. This is it: Only nut cases want to be president.”
