Looks like the establishment is looking far afield for alternatives to Bush.

[At HP] Fiorina received backlash for implementing precisely the kind of transformation she was brought on to make. And the fluctuating stock price, layoffs and other supposed byproducts of her leadership? “Normal. You don’t survive if you continue to do your old thing in a new world.” Today, Hewlett-Packard is one of the few original titans of Silicon Valley to thrive in the modern era.

That's an excellent summation of what happened with Fiorina at HP.  She saved the company, but in the process made enemies that took revenge years later.

I did not work for HP directly but I worked in a HP shop as a programmer.  I was on one of the consolidated platforms that HP did away with.  People I know lost jobs because the platform was done away with.  That is the nature of any business.  Carly did not set the goals for consolidating lines making HP more profitable or turning them into the largest PC maker in the world.  Carly accomplished those goals during a rough business environment.  Carly did that while still turning a profit.  We need someone who can go to Washington consolidate duplication and deal with people being mad about it.  If anyone makes DC listen and shrink to a constitutional level there will be more screaming than what happened at HP.  Carly has been consistent.  There are other people saying what we want to hear but have been on all sides of every issue. I want a leader.   A salesman will tell us what we want to hear and do what is best for them down the road.

CNN will now allow candidates to join the main debate if they are polling in the top 10 since the first debate, according to polling averages between Aug. 7 and Sept. 10. This means there might end up being more than 10 candidates on the stage. It does not appear from CNN's new criteria that anyone could be bumped who would have previously been included.

According to NPR's analysis of the numbers, the new criteria work out to add Fiorina to the debate stage, at least for now. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie would drop to the lowest of the top pack, No. 11, but still be included because he's in the top 10 since mid-July.

You won't see me sharing from NPR very often, but they had the most complete description of what the CNN rules change actually was.

The former Hewlett-Packard CEO had been fighting CNN's criteria for the September presidential candidates debate. Now, she might get her way and make it into the network's main event.

In the 2014 cycle, the Republican establishment ran candidates that got elected on the conservative promises of the conservative candidates.  Unfortunately, they didn't follow through on those promises - thus the success of the very highly antiestablishment Trump.

All it took was a man with money, pomp, and fame to burst onto the scene and strike the match on the lighter fluid that had long been marinating in the electoral wood pile.  Trump’s official stances on a lot of critical issues are being overlooked because, for the most part, this is not even about Donald Trump.  This is about a party that had long been disenfranchised but lacked any national vehicle through which to express its despair.  And with a Democrat Party controlled by a Hillary Clinton/Bernie Sanders/Martin O’Malley freak show, many Middle America Democrats and Independents feel the same way....

It’s very likely Donald Trump could still gradually flame out over time, but that won’t change the equation because it was never about Trump.  Ted Cruz has quietly positioned himself to win the hearts and minds of the people, and for once, he is beating the establishment in their own money game.  Ben Carson is polling well just on his outsiders appeal alone.  It’s not that Trump is sucking out all of the oxygen in the room; it’s that the establishment has run out of any oxygen to survive in this environment, irrespective of who else is in the room.  Every candidate could drop out tomorrow leaving Bush as the de facto nominee and he still will still lack support outside of a few zip codes.

In 2014, we put the right people in office to take over both the Senate and the House. Unfortunately, we couldn't clean out all the a**** RINOS that were already there. Until we get rid of f*** face Boehner and his counterparts in the Senate, we have no chance to straighten up this country. Personally, I think some duct tape and a chair in the back room would do just fine 😀

One wonderful thing about sharing economy companies like Uber and AirBnB is that, while the people running them often profess to be progressives, their actual effect is to promote the free market.

The taxi medallion scam is one of the worst examples of crony capitalism.  Uber (and some other app-driven services) are in the process of defeating the scam in New York and, apparently, in many other places as well.  It's about time. The scam is simple.  A city issues a limited number of so-called "medallions," which convey exclusive rights to pick up passengers on the streets, and often at airports as well.  I have never heard anyb...

Elizabeth Warren just responded to an email I wrote her two months ago asking her to join the Senators attempting to prevent renewal of the "USA Patriot" act entirely.

Her email says she helped pass the "USA Freedom" act, which was a version of "USA Patriot" only slightly watered down.  I guess she hoped that I would forget the issues in the meantime.

Seems like this parade wasn't so much of a show of force after all, with a substantial troop cut announced.  On the other hand, commemorating the end of WWII rather than the revolution is probably a message of disapproval to Japan about Japan's failure to acknowledge or really apologize for their WWII atrocities.

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2015/09/03/china-says-it-will-cut-300000-troops-from-army-at-parade-commemorating-end-wwii/
Chinese President Xi Jinping pledged Thursday to reduce China's army by 300,000 people due to rising personnel costs and growing technological capabilities that reduce the need for large numbers of troops.

+Tony Ben Why would they lie?  China is having significant budgetary issues, and this is a good place to cut costs.  In addition, they don't really have a lot of need for a big army at the moment; given their geographical and trade situation, it makes sense that they would want to shift their focus to their navy instead.

About time someone pointed out there are two sides to this story.  Certainly there are cases where the police overstep their bounds, but there are also cases where the police are unfairly jumped on when it turns out their actions were reasonable and justified.

Speaking on Texas's WBAP Tuesday, Cruz said Obama's "silence" on Goforth's murder is "completely wrong" and is a "manifestation of the divisiveness, the partisanship and of the hostility to law enforcement that has characterized the entire Obama administration."

Subsidies cost taxpayers billions, flow disproportionately to large corporations, and raise prices on goods like milk, sugar, and other staples. The Kochs want to eliminate them all: oil, gas, the Ex-Im Bank, wind, solar, wheat, catfish — you name it.

Obama disagrees. He likes subsidies when they go to companies and industries he favors; he condemns them when they go to those he doesn’t like. That is precisely the reason Charles Koch wants them gone. Politicians shouldn’t be in the business of dispensing favors to business.
