The Truth About Liberalism

I’ve been chewing over this wonderful little missive from the socialism according to David Sirota:

I know I should be mortified by the lobbyist-organized mobs of angry Brooks Brothers mannequins who are now making headlines by shutting down congressional town hall meetings. I know I should be despondent during this, the Khaki Pants Offensive in the Great American Health Care and Tax War. And yet, I’m euphorically repeating one word over and over again with a big grin on my face.


Finally, there’s no pretense. Finally, the Me-First, Screw-Everyone-Else Crowd’s ugliest traits are there for all to behold.

Let’s run through the list:

1.  denigration of protesters who are too well dressed – check

2. setting up strawman that opposing socialism and healthcare takover by Obama and the government is simply selfishness – check

3. implication that only those who want to steal somebody else’s money to “give” “free” “healthcare” to those who won’t pay for it – check

Its very rare that liberals will flat come out and say so clearly that a) you have something they want and b) they will steal it from you at the barrel of a gun.

What They Will Scream: But 38.5 percent is disproportionately high! See? You’ve proved that the rich “contribute more than their share” of taxes!

What You Should Say: Actually, they are paying almost exactly “their share.” According to the data, the wealthiest 5 percent of America pays 38.5 percent of the total taxes precisely because they make just about that share — a whopping 36.5 percent! — of total national income.

Note that a) this admits that the ‘rich’ are already paying a disproportionate share of taxes and b) these stats don’t include the complete and utter rape that will occur if the Democrat plan as proposed in the house passes.

So if you want to actually keep the money you earn – and note he’s saying that whatever you are paying now its not enough – you are just a Me-First Selfish person.

Of course, he reveals himself as a thief, but that’s the truth of liberalism.<.p>

A Timely Reminder

“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does not good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”

– Adrian Rogers – American pastor (1931-2005)

Interesting Venue for The Porkulus Signing

The website Face the State has some very interesting information about the place where the generational theft bill called Stimulus was signed today:

With a stroke of the pen today, President Barack Obama will enact the largest single federal spending package in history. He will do so inside Denver’s Museum of Nature and Science, a facility heavily subsidized by Denver taxpayers and one that stands in stark contrast with Obama’s own pledges regarding open government.


The museum is the single largest recipient of grant money from the Scientific & Cultural Facilities District, a multi-county sales tax district created by the state. In 2008, the DMNS was budgeted to receive nearly $7 million in appropriations, although little information is available as to how exactly this money is spent. Despite receiving significant annual funding from taxpayers, the museum is tight-lipped as to its operations and expenses, citing its status as a 501(c)(3) non-profit.

Taxpayers are expected to cough up the cash.  How its actually spent it none of their business.  Oh and when it comes to that tax thing:

The museum came under fire in 2007 for donating $300,000 to a successful campaign to raise Denver property taxes by $500 million, $30 million of which will flow back to the DMNS. Museum officials said at the time that the political contribution came from ticket sales and other visitor revenue, not public funds. Without basic information as to the non-profit’s finances, however, Face The State is unable to independently verify the museum’s claims.

Unfortunately you read that right.  This bunch of thieves used Denver’s very own tax money to sell a tax increase.  Pretty good return at 10,000%.  But did the voters know that their own money was being used to sell them a huge tax increase?

Rare Democrat Candor – But It Is John Kerry

In his comments today urging his fellow Senators to waste $1 trillion of your money, John Kerry*  made the following slip:

I’ve supported many tax cuts over the years, and there are tax cuts in this proposal. But a tax cut is non-targeted.

If you put a tax cut into the hands of a business or family, there’s no guarantee that they’re going to invest that or invest it in America.

They’re free to go invest anywhere that they want if they choose to invest.

It is rare that Democrats actually come out against freedom in actual words – although  every action they take is to limit dangerous things like personal liberty.

We all know from his failed Presidential campaign that John Kerry is an elitist snob who tends to marry money (big fracking gobs of it), so he is obviously much more qualified than any American family to spend their money wisely.  After all, he got elected Senator didn’t he?  Doesn’t that confer upon him Olympian powers of wisdom?


* John Kerry may or may not have been in Cambodia, but he did serve in Vietnam before throwing some kind of medals over the fence of the White House.

Two Personal Socialists Shot – Family Upset

Could there be anything that exemplifies the breakdown of morals in America than the fact that the grandparents of one of these two little thugs would say:

“He should not have taken the law in his hands,” said Rosa Jones, Gadson’s grandmother.

Her husband, Ivory Jones, also condemned the media for its portrayal of Lovell’s actions.”I don’t condone what they did, (but) I definitely don’t condone the news people making him out to seem like they’re making a hero out of this man because he shot somebody down,” he said.

This is what happened:

According to Plantation police, two armed men barged into the Subway at 1949 Pine Island Road shortly after 11 p.m. Wednesday, demanding money from the employee behind the counter. When they tried to force John Lovell into the bathroom, he pulled out a gun and shot both men, police said.

Donicio Arrindell, 22, was shot in the head and later died at the hospital. Fredrick Gadson, 21, was shot in the chest and ran from the Subway, but police found him in hiding in some bushes on the property of a nearby BankAtlantic.

Lovell, 71, was the lone customer at the time. Police said he had a concealed weapons permit.

So these self-appointed socialists are waving a gun around, demanding money, and try to force a 71 year old man into the bathroom.  Unfortunately for these fine upstanding specimens of their community the man is a former Marine, has a gun, and decides that enough is enough.  Seems very straightforward to anyone with half a brain.

But their grandparents come out and say he shouldn’t have shot them?  That’s the part that just freezes me in slackjawed disbelief.  If these idiots had any moral sense and raised their child and grandchild with the idea that pointing guns at people and demanding money isn’t civilized or very safe – well, maybe their thug of a grandson wouldn’t be in the hospital.  And facing decades in jail.

But I know the problem.  The grandparents weren’t given parenting classes that told them that stealing and threatening an old man and pointing guns at people weren’t OK things.  They just assumed that since nobody told them this was untrue, they didn’t then pass this wisdom along to their childrena and grandchildren – thereby making it all…….

George W Bush’s fault.

And the nice old man who shot them?  Well, he’s a Marine.  It sounds like he was willing to let them steal the money and get away till these two feces-brained slackers decided to threaten him directly.  I wish he’d taken out both of them – now its going to cost the taxpayers of Florida lots of money to incarcerate the one left alive.

Another Job Americans Won’t Do

Undocumented Mexican Immigrants? Six Mexicans illegally in the country

clipped from
Six undocumented Mexican immigrants were arrested today by U.S. Border Patrol agents at Qualcomm Stadium, after a report that they were stealing food and water meant for evacuees, according to spokesman Damon Foreman.
San Diego police responded to a call about alleged theft from the evacuation center and encountered six people in a van who didn’t speak English and didn’t have California driver’s licenses, Foreman said. The police officers called the Border Patrol, who arrived at the stadium and made the arrests, he said. Foreman said the immigrants admitted they were Mexican citizens and that they were stealing.
