KENNETH ROGOFF
(born Mar-22-1953) United States of America

[what is this?]
Kenneth Saul Rogoff learned chess from his father at age 6, but took up the game in earnest when he got a chess set for his 13th birthday. He was soon recognised as a chess prodigy. By age 14, he was a USCF master and New York State Open Champion, and shortly thereafter became a senior master, the highest US national title. At sixteen Rogoff dropped out of high school to concentrate on chess, and spent the next several years living primarily in Europe and playing in tournaments there. However, at eighteen he made the decision to go to college and pursue a career in economics rather than to become a professional player, although he continued to play and improve for several years afterward.

Rogoff was awarded the IM title in 1974, and the GM title in 1978. He came third in the World Junior Championship of 1971 and finished second in the US Championship of 1975, which doubled as a Zonal competition, one-half point behind Walter Shawn Browne; this result qualified him for the 1976 Interzonal at Biel, where he finished 13-15th. In other tournaments he finished equal first at Norristown 1973 and Orense 1976.

Early in his economics career, Rogoff served as chief economist at the International Monetary Fund and also at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. He is currently the Thomas D. Cabot Professor of Public Policy and Professor of Economics at Harvard University.

  FSR: <PinnedPiece: ... [Perry] didn't forget the agency....this is how left comedy works: first, completely distort the original meaning, and then take it from there and twist it as far as you can...>

Give me a break.

<<PERRY: I will tell you, it is three agencies of government when I get there that are gone. Commerce, Education, and the -- What's the third one there? Let's see.

(LAUGHTER)

PAUL: Five.

PERRY: Five. Okay. Commerce, Education, and the --

[UNKNOWN]: EPA?

PERRY: EPA. There you go.

Q: Seriously -- is EPA one you are talking about?

PERRY: No, sir, no, sir. We are talking about the -- agencies of government -- EPA needs to be rebuilt.

Q: You can't -- you can't name the third one?

PERRY: The third agency of government I would -- I would do away with Education, the --

Q: Commerce.

PERRY: Commerce and, let's see. I can't. The third one, I can't. Sorry. Oops.>

About 15 minutes later in the debate, Perry said he meant to say that the Department of Energy is the third agency he wanted to eliminate.

According to Peter Hamby of CNN, Perry showed up at the spin room after the debate and told reporters, "I'm sure glad I had my boots on because I sure stepped in it out there."> http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/...

  hedgeh0g: Either <PiPi>'s getting dementia, or he's just a dishonest little unagi. Or perhaps both.

Unfortunately, what might have passed twenty years ago doesn't cut the mustard in this day and age, where information is freely available and just about anyone can call him out on his bulls#!t.

Apr-24-14  Colonel Mortimer: Pure ideology by <pipi>

The welfare cowboy must be defended at all costs, for Bundy represents more than one finger up big government, he's a 5 star suppository.

As with the majority of <pipi>'s posts - the righteous thread is dependent on ideology, not moral consistency.

But then, I consider the US defunct. Federal government does a very bad job of representing the diversity of the American people be it intellectual, racial, geographical or cultural. It should be broken up into smaller pieces - Texas being one of those pieces.

It will happen soon enough, and it will be for the better. Talking of American people as though they are one intellectual and cultural biomass is ridiculous. The dream is over - that's for failed pilots who skimped on Vietnam and skipped through Yale on their connections.

  twinlark: <Caissanist>

Maybe Rogoff missed reading Zbigniew Bzezinski's "The Grand Chessboard" and probably the PNAC's "Rebuilding America's Defenses". The PNAC had advised that a nuclear war with the Soviet Union/Russia was winnable. The only reason the PNAC dissolved was that its policies have been implemented since Bush and 911, with Obama being the latest enabler. This move against Russia has been planned for a very long time.

Russia has been unable to rebuild its defences quickly enough since Yeltsin tried to sell the place out, and is now in the position of damned if it does, damned if it doesn't. The region is now about to enter the kind of suffering being experienced in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Sudan and Afghanistan.

The US is initiating its endgame strategy against Russia - and China - via Ukraine. It's final objective will be the elimination of both as serious rivals, and the complete isolation and break up of Russia, and possibly China.

The US is determined to control Eurasia at all costs, and will stop at nothing to achieve this end.

I'm surprised that the US is prepared to risk nuclear war.

I hope I'm completely wrong.

Luckily you're wrong, the neocons and their kind had and have these objectives - luckily there is a sensible portion of the American citizenry that have woken up to the machinations and wars committed in their name..

  Jim Bartle: Bundy's musing on driving by a housing project in Las Vegas:

<I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro, and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids — and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch — they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do.

And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do? They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.>

The <Negro> is on government subsidy? And the welfare cowboy doesn't think he is?

The <Negro was better off as a slave?

People are defending this man?

Apr-24-14  Colonel Mortimer: <JB> <People are defending this man?>

Not sure why you're surprised? Institutionally the USA is the most racist of all Western democracies. That in itself is not a surprise given its recent history (i.e. all of it).

Apr-24-14  Refused: I want to make a post on the level of pipi and diceman.

Is rancher Bundy related to another proud conservative methodist by that name. Ted Bundy?

Did I nail it, was I down on that level?

  Jim Bartle: Donald Trump uncovers another scandal:

<The way President Obama runs down the stairs of Air Force 1, hopping & bobbing all the way, is so inelegant and unpresidential. Do not fall!>

Of course if Obama descended the stairs slowly Trump would be saying, "Look, Obama thinks he's a king, with that stately walk down the stairs."

A bear there was
a bear, a bear
all black and brown
and covered with hair
Oh come they said
oh come to the fair
the fair? said he
but I'm a bear
all black and brown
and covered in hair!
And down the road
from here to there
from here, to there
three boys, a goat
and a dancing bear
they danced and spun
all the way to the fair!
Oh, sweet she was
and pure and fair
the maid with honey
in her hair, her hair
the maid with honey
in her hair
The bear smelled the scent
on the summer air
the bear, the bear
all black and brown
and covered with hair
he smelled the scent
on the summer air
he sniffed and roared
and smelled it there
honey on the summer air
Oh I'm a maid
and I'm pure and fair
I'll never dance
with a hairy bear
a bear, a bear
I'll never dance
with a hairy bear
The bear, the bear
lifted her high
into the air
the bear, the bear
I called for a knight
but you're a bear
a bear, a bear
all black and brown
and covered in hair
She kicked and wailed
the maid so fair
but he licked the honey
from her hair
her hair, her hair
he licked the honey
from her hair
Then she sighed and squealed
and kicked the air
she sang: my bear so fair
and off they went

  Jim Bartle: Has anybody read about the new "guns are OK anywhere" law in Georgia.

One of the provisions is that police cannot ask a person carrying a gun for a permit unless that person is committing a crime.

Interesting. Conservatives don't have the same concern when it's asking people on the street for their papers.

Apr-24-14  Petrosianic: <Jim Bartle> <Interesting. Conservatives don't have the same concern when it's asking people on the street for their papers.>

If you're talking about the Arizona Law, it doesn't do that. That's just a little fib that Holder and Bob Schieffer told on national TV. Is there another law that does do that?

And is this Georgia law really a law, or just a bill, or even an idea knocking around somewhere?

Apr-24-14  diceman: <Jim Bartle: Donald Trump uncovers another scandal:>

  Jim Bartle: <petrosianic> It's a law. The Georgia governor gave a speech after signing it. Said it will make georgia safer.

One change: It's now legal to carry a gun in the TSA line at Atlanta airport.

As far as Arizona is concerned, either the law does permit random demands for papers, or the Phoenix sheriff breaks the law every day.
