Liberalism Versus Blacks
FrontPage Magazine, by Thomas Sowell

Original Article

Posted By:smcchk, 1/15/2013 11:07:05 PM

There is no question that liberals do an impressive job of expressing concern for blacks. But do the intentions expressed in their words match the actual consequences of their deeds? San Francisco is a classic example of a city unexcelled in its liberalism. But the black population of San Francisco today is less than half of what it was back in 1970, even though the city’s total population has grown. Severe restrictions on building housing in San Francisco have driven rents and home prices so high that blacks and other people with low or moderate incomes have

San Francisco is the classic Leftist city because it´s hypocrisy run wild. They claim to be caring and compassionate, but it´s all a big joke. The city is a depository of rich, mostly white, educated idiots. They´re all about helping the poor on one hand, but compete like crazy to get tables at the latest expensive "in" restaurant. They´ll blow hundreds on a meal, then head back to their safe neighborhoods.

Of course, they weren´t happy with poor people living so close to the "happening" spots so now they´ve taken over formerly blue collar neighborhoods and have successfully risen rents to the point that only rich techies can afford to live there. The formerly Latino Mission District has become so popular that they´re actually complaining that there are too many high-end restaurants on their streets and no longer any services for the long time residents.

These people couldn´t care less about the poor black community in Hunter´s Point and the Bayview. They are so self absorbed that they care more about leashing dogs then they care about drive by shootings. It´s a very superficial place, full of shallow,selfish, elitists who talk about how "progressive" they are while they live off their trust funds and stock options.

Visiting from the Midwest, I was stunned by the amount of homeless people I saw sleeping in the streets in San Francisco. A cousin of mine, very liberal, stopped replying to me when I asked how he, as a San Francisco resident, could justify his political spoutings with the human misery all around him.

Lefties are total hypocrites and phonys. They make me ill and I hate them and their arrogant, nasty and controlling personalities. It is sad that SF has been taken over and destroyed by lefties--like most of this once great state has been. The vast majority of them came from other states or countries during and after the hippy movement. Eventually, most of the normal people moved away. The natives are sadly missed.

Liberal elitists always rope themsevles off from black people.Even in the liberal bastion of Martha´s Vineyard,the black "upper crust" have their own enclaves.They didn´t like MO coming there a couple years ago saying she was too ghetto.

Sounds like SF has systemic redlining going on which the left condemns for everybody else.

FTA: "Who cares about facts, when you are on a liberal crusade that makes you feel morally superior?"

Thank you, Doctor. This is an exceptionally quotable line.

Perhaps there´s room for Dr. Sowell in today´s MUST READ list?.

"Severe restrictions on building housing in San Francisco have driven rents and home prices so high that blacks and other people with low or moderate incomes have been driven out of the city."

I wonder if that would be workable where I live...

The leftist have destroyed the will of millions of Blacks and the Quasi-Government Agency Planned Parenthood has destroyed the lives of millions of Blacks.

Yet 98% of Blacks voted in the last election to continue this trend.

The only possible answer is that people are willing to trade their future potential for a fist full of dollars, a small fist at that.

This is the true legacy of White liberalism. May God forgive us all.

Romney’s return to public life stokes
speculation about potential 2016 run
FOX News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: smcchk- 4/5/2014 3:55:13 PM     Post Reply
Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has

Waterford school districts drop
federal lunch program
Journal Times [Racine WI], by Lindsay Bullock    Original Article

WATERFORD — New federal requirements that foods sold in schools be healthier have some area school districts opting out of the federal lunch program that provides subsidies for serving free or reduced-price meals to low-income students. Opting out means the districts do not have to follow food healthiness requirements. But it also means the districts lose federal money that covers the cost of free and reduced-price meals for poorer students. The Waterford Graded and Waterford High School districts have weighed their options and decided they’d rather forego the money and serve what they want. They’ll continue to cover the costs

Of course there is. But our leading politicians all seem to have stepped out of your college dorm. Bill Clinton is the guy who never lost a BS session argument. Ted Cruz is the only guy who never lost an argument to Bill Clinton, but who also set the dorm record for causing eyes to roll. Barack Obama is the guy you could usually defeat in an argument but only the most intelligent of your friends realized you had beaten him. George W. Bush is the guy who never participated in BS sessions. You thought he was out having a good

Poll: Growing Number of Young
Republicans Support Gay Marriage
Independent Journal Review, by Caroline Schaeffer    Original Article
Posted By: smcchk- 3/13/2014 1:08:22 AM     Post Reply
A poll released Monday by the Pew Research Center has found that support for gay marriage is increasing in those who identify as Republicans under the age of 30. 61% of those polled who lean towards the party are in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage while only 35% oppose it. This is in stark contrast to Republicans over the age of 50 – only 27% of that audience support it. Pew also found a record high percentage of Americans – 54% – support allowing gays to marry. Only 18% of young Republicans said that “more gay and lesbian couples raising children”

The Left’s War on Horses

At Grand Army Plaza, beneath the golden equestrian statue of General Sherman, the horses stand, lazily flicking their ears, and occasionally glancing around as a yellow taxi driven by an angry Pakistani wheels around past the Plaza Hotel, brakes squealing, an Al Qaeda friendly Nasheed blaring through the open window. Feathered plumes, scarlet red, sapphire blue, electric purple, matching the colors of the plush linings of their carriages, stir faintly in the wind. The drivers, wearing black top hats and colorful suits, chat with each other while waiting for a tourist from Baltimore or Beijing to take a ride. The horses

Secretary of State Kerry lashes out at

JAKARTA, Indonesia – U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday called climate change perhaps the world´s "most fearsome" destructive weapon and mocked those who deny its existence or question its causes, comparing them to people who insist the Earth is flat. In a speech to Indonesian students, civic leaders and government officials, Kerry tore into climate change skeptics. He accused them of using shoddy science and scientists to delay steps needed to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases at the risk of imperiling the planet. A day earlier, the U.S. and China announced an agreement to cooperate more closely on

Bill de Blasio’s Red Apple Agenda
Front Page Magazine, by Daniel Greenfield    Original Article
Posted By: smcchk- 2/12/2014 12:13:27 AM     Post Reply
The further left a radical politician wants to go, the more likely he is to wrap his agenda in a mainstream Republican brand. In his interview with Bill O’Reilly, Obama compared himself to Nixon (not for the reason most Republicans would expect) and in his State of the City address, Bill de Blasio compared himself to Fiorello H. La Guardia; a former Republican mayor of New York City. The constant mentions of La Guardia, a universally popular figure, were a poor mask for a radical address filled with ugly divisive rhetoric, class warfare and schemes that will bankrupt the city.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

   

 



 
White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
