The gun control debate, like all debates with the left, is reducible to the question of whether we are individuals who make our own decisions or a great squishy social mass that helplessly responds to stimuli. Do people kill with guns or does the availability of guns kill people? Do bad eating habits kill people or does the availability of junk food kill people? To the left these are distinctions without a difference. If a thing is available then it is the cause of the problem.
Excellent article. The only exception I have is with the ´´liberal sees us as lab animals´ comparison. I don´t believe they have even that much respect for individuals. They see the individual (themselves excepted) as no more then members of a hive, such as bees or ants. The only thing important in their thinking is the hive; that is why they always talk of government as if it were a separate, living entity, and why government is the answer to every real or imagined problem. Of course, leftists never see themselves as worker bees, that only applies the the masses. Leftists believe they are all queen bees whose job is to tell the workers what to do.
FTA: "To the left these are distinctions without a difference. If a thing is available then it is the cause of the problem. The individual cannot be held accountable for shooting someone if there are guns for sale. Individuals have no role to play because they are not moral actors, only members of a mob responding to stimuli." So, by this line of thinking, the solution to rape is simple, but surgical.
What a great article! It hits the left right between the eyes with their idiotic version of reality. Sadly, it is a bit too intellectually indulgent. The goofy "victim citizens" who keep on voting to be taken care of by the Nanny Sate are incapable of grasping these ideas and facts about human nature and the largess of all-intrusive government- the main questions society is asking in this country today is, "Will we still be allowed to go to the mall?" and "Will we still get our welfare checks and disability payments every month?"
So true, poster #3. They train teachers to try to erase the concept of individual in their indoctrination centers.
"Self-esteem" is not something to earn through accomplishment, it is a gift from the teacher in the from of vacuous praise, "You are a special snowflake, there is no one like you." The "winner" does not get a "trophy", every one gets a "participation award" and lots of praise for trying. Children are told to think of themselves as part of a group: ethnic, gender, etc. Be aware of the group you are in, and behave in the manner of other group members. There is no absolute right or wrong, just different choices, all cultures are equally valid. You are smarter than your parents/your parents are hopelessly old fashioned, their values are outdated, and they are stupid and/or prejudiced bigots. It is OK to do and learn things at school and not tell your parents, they wouldn´t understand.
President Barack Obama never even once visited the iconic Nelson Mandela while he was still alive, but count on him hogging all the limelight he can at the freedom hero’s funeral. It is a matter of public record that Obama ignored Mr. Mandela during all four years of his first term as president. Michelle Obama briefly visited Mandela during her 2011 South African trip before going on safari with her two daughters. During Obama’s June 2013 South African trip, Obama “deferred” to the family of an ailing Mandela by not visiting Mandela at his sick bed. Does anyone notice how Obama excels at latching
Ugh! The falling-fast-in-popularity-polls Barack Hussein Obama is diving for cover under the cassock of Pope Francis, and it’s going to require a take-no-prisoners Catholic League president like Bill Donohue to drag him back out. Obama’s M.O. for hiding under Francis skirts? ‘The Artful Dodger of the White House’ counts on people thinking that If the pope can be a Marxist, then the Marxist Fundamental Transformation of America can’t be all bad. The big difference here is that no one, not the mainstream media or the talking heads jumped on the man they call Obama when he ran for the presidency back in
The House Republican leadership with its Dec. 3 vote to extend the ban on “undetectable” guns proved again it excels at political cowardice and betrayal of conservatives. Do not bother looking for the roll call of the yeas and nays on the vote, the GOP leaders, working with Democrats, suspended the rules and passed the measure with a voice vote—with maybe 15 actual congressmen on the House floor. In another profile in cowardice, Republicans put up Rep. J. Howard Coble (R.-N.C) to sponsor the bill, H.R. 3626. The 82-year-old congressman announced his retirement a month ago, so let’s just say he took
In a world where the New York Times can posit that the ‘Knockout Game’ Trend has no import—and gets away with it—no one can know the future, but with the way things are going it is only commonsense to worry your way into trying to do something about it. People old enough to remember 70 years of Communism in the Soviet Union and its satellites before communism made its hurried move for a safe North America landing, stand their ground against the misery of Marxism planned for America by President Barack Obama. But young people, who now over populate the ‘Me
In 1995, a book written by a little known community organizer was released. Dreams From My Father is a ‘Fairytale for Adults’, many of whom swallowed it hook, line and sinker. In 2013, a book written by Jane Sutcliffe, entitled Barack Obama, making the claim that white Americans are racists, made it to required reading status at Bluffview Elementary School in Dupo, Ill. The book Barack Obama is a ‘Fairytale for Children’, many of whose imaginations are occupied elsewhere. That’s because the actual timing of Sutcliffe’s Barack Obama as a Grade 4 must-read is way off. Children in the Grade 4 age group—thousands
Britain’s Court of Appeal upheld a ban of a radio ad this week that had initially been banned by the then Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt and the Radio Advertising Clearance Centre on the grounds that it was directed toward a political end. Media political advertising is not permitted in the UK. The ad, by Christian Community Partnership (CCP), asked people to identify if they had experienced discrimination in the workplace as a result of their faith. CCP publishes several magazines as well as owning Premier Christian Radio, the national broadcaster that was to carry the commercial.
The nightmare world of propaganda and psych ops the Obama administration uses to frighten its citizens into mass subjugation has just exploded into daytime reality. In an era where Identity Theft is ruining lives, the headline warning from yesterday’s INVESTORS.com is the ObamaCare Website is Like ‘IdentityTheft.Gov. “Security: Computer security experts testify that the unfinished health care marketplace portal places the personal information of millions at risk on a poorly designed and built site that is a hacker’s dream.” (INVESTORS.com, Nov. 20, 2013) “Not only is the poorly designed and still only partially built ObamaCare website, Healthcare.gov vulnerable to attack by computer hackers,
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
