I´ve Been a Limousine
Liberal...Twice

American Thinker, by David Lawrence

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 2/6/2013 11:04:49 AM

As an adolescent, I was a limousine liberal in my dad´s house in Great Neck. I felt compassion for all the needy of the world and admired the communists who were trying to spread the wealth in equal, fair shares to people of unequal talents, efforts, and ambitions. (snip) I´ve been a limousine liberal twice in my life: in the sixties in my dad´s Lincoln, in the eighties and nineties in my Rolls-Royce

Spreading the wealth among communists does not mean spreading the wealth among the people. It means among their corrupt leadership.

Get a clue moron, Communists don´t share didly, they STEAL from everyone to enrich themselves and their cronies. Their actions are not matched by their retoric. The same is true of Obama, he IS A Communist, through and through, look at his actions and the results!

Um... okay.

Uhhh... David, thanks for playing. Be sure to pick up your nice parting gift as you exit the studio.

[What in the wide, wide world of sports was that? I think AT could have re-thought running this column.]

Well, for what it´s worth, I enjoyed the column. Maybe I understood it differently from other posters. Wonder who´s right?

You are right No. 4 and I don´t think the others read the column. I don´t like to think they were not intelligent enough to understand it.

FTA- The liberals do -- yet most of them are ironically atheists and have not suffered crucifixion for the sins of mankind. They are believers in nothing. They are regulations minus the moral convictions. They are mouths of emptiness spitting out the saliva of platitudes.

It is worth reading the article just for that last paragraph.

I read the article and I think the guy has seen the light. You have to be humbled to realize the truth. I know nothing of his history.

We have what mom called ´Sunday go to meeting Christians´ or elitist who go through the motions of caring about the impoverished-unually in a foreign country. Look at me; take my picture. Not in my back yard people.

Sad to say we are now two classes of people: the have and have nots. Unfortunately, many have moved from one column to the other.

As a side note: In the last month I have read two prayer request asking for the rich to share their wealth (just because) with the poor. Zippy has a large audience of mesmerized lemmings.

Justice Sotomayor and the
affirmative action bitter-enders
have lost bigtime
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article

The American public has woken up to the folly of trying to end racial discrimination by practicing it, dooming affirmative action to a slow death, and the racialist left is not taking the news very well. That is the only conclusion to draw from the extraordinary dissenting opinion yesterday by Justice Sonia Sotomayor in Schuette v BAMN, the case in which the Court upheld Michigan’s law outlawing racial preferences in state-funded higher education. Sotomayor took the unusual step of reading the dissent aloud from the bench, indicating her vehemence. Justice Sotomayor’s dissent was actually longer than all the other opinions in

Obama is Bursting the Left´s Bubbles

Early 2014 will be viewed historically as the period when most of the American left’s bubbles detached themselves completely from reality and wafted off to Unicornland. (snip)left-wing intellectual bubbles have been cold, desolate places since the Reagan era. With the catastrophe of the Great Society, the undeniable success of Reaganism, and at last the collapse of the USSR, leftist illusions were shattered, leaving little but blasted dreams and bitterness, expressed as PC and related programs that amounted to little more than gestures of revenge. Then came Obama, who brought it all back to life again.

CNN reporter ignites firestorm overseas

CNN reporter Jeanne Moos sparked outrage in New Zealand and Australia for her coverage of the visit of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge to New Zealand, for mocking the dress and customs of the Maori people who greeted the royals. It is almost inconceivable that a CNN reporter would mock the traditions of Native Americans, blacks, or other domestic minorities (and that editors would air such a report), but take them outside of their zone of PC awareness, and the inherent attitudes disguised at home come shining through.

In their excellent book, The Year Without Summer: 1816 and the Volcano That Darkened the World and Changed History, William and Nicholas Klingaman relate the history, causes, and effects of the record cold that gripped the northern hemisphere in 1816. (snip) The winter of 2013-14 bears a striking resemblance to that of 1815-16, and there is every reason to believe that what follows will repeat the pattern of earlier periods of extreme cold. The consequences will not be pleasant. As some have begun to realize, periods of extreme cold are far more destructive than periods of warming. My prediction of a

Politico´s dirty little secret

It’s going to be an unsettling day for the Ruling Class in Washington, DC. One of the little tricks that keeps the Beltway media-special interest alliance prosperously spinning along has been exposed to the light of day by Washington Post blogger Eric Wemple. In a long piece devoted to Politico’s Mike Allen, Wemple chronicles the confluence of advertising and journalism via what a practice called “native advertising,” inserting material that looks like it could be an ordinary item written by a journalist, but which actually is paid advertising. Wemple describes native advertising as “the tricks that publishers deploy to elide

White House honors French neo-Marxist

Thomas Piketty may not be a household name in this country (yet), but the French economist who is updating Karl Marx has quite a following at the White House and among thought leaders of the Democratic Party. Thomas Hubert of France24 explains: In his latest book, French economist Thomas Piketty warns that modern-day capitalism leads to unsustainable levels of inequality. (Snip) So far this week, he has met the White House’s Council of Economic Advisors as well as Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew. “The Democratic Party, especially the Obama administration, has been in contact with us and using our findings for

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:
´splurging is the key to life´

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
