Congressman Jim McDermott (D-Washington) warns the U.S. could turn into a scene from Les Misérables without a ´we´ mentality in an interview with C-SPAN´s "Washington Journal" on Tuesday. McDERMOTT: This whole society is gradually changing in response to what’s going on. Now, we’re in a very difficult period right now, because we have a lot of people who suddenly think it’s all about me. And it isn’t about me; it’s about we. If we don’t take care of one another, and we say everybody’s on their own, then it will simply fall apart as a society:
Comments: I guess this moron has missed the mayhem and destruction already caused by flash mobs. s/o
The left has been working on dividing this nation ever since the "civil rights" acts of the 1960´s opened the borders to unindustrious third worlders and LBJ´s "Great Society / War on Poverty" legislation on which he remarked "I´ll have them N----´s voting Democrat for the next 200 years". Identity politics and pitting groups against each other are the only thing McDermott´s party has been engaged in for decades. Who the hell does he think he´s kidding? Oh that´s right.....low information 0bama voters, who else?
Jim, the mob scenes won´t be because of the ´me mentality´. They will begin only because WTP are mad as hell with all the crap you people keep pushing down our throats. Book covers can be so deceiving. You certainly look like a distinguished, intelligent man, until one looks inside.
I don´t think we have to worry that our people will starve...we will all take care of each other if we come to a calamity. This leftist just wants us to believe that only the Democrats know what to do when it happens....he is a jerk.
Oh sure, the urban animals and parasites are really going to care about anybody but themselves. The only time they give decent, hardworking people any thought at all is when they want more money from them, by hook or crook. This guy´s insane whatever else he may be.
Come on Jim, its such a short step from here. You are so close to having the blinders fall off. Just a little nudge...
Ask why it has become all about me and not we. Could it possibly be the lefts constant categorization of all by their victim or oppressor status? The replacement of God with government? The constant effort to provide a society completely devoid of anything that makes anyone uncomfortable for any reason? The drumbeat of I can´t because someone did this to my great grandfathers second cousin?
Mr. Demint, one cannot ever consider "we" until they inderstand exactly who "me" is AND how "Me" fits into societys moral order.
In the movie Blast from the past Troy asks Adam, fresh from 1960´s America, why everyone seems to like him. Adam tells Troy "Manners" and explains that "Manners are the things we do to make the people around us feel comfortable".
I love that quaote because somewhere in the last 40 years of government run education that definition has become twisted, and it explains an awful lot about the lefts culture of victimhood.
If our out of step hero had been educated in the late 80´s he would have answered: "manners are what other people should do to make me comfortable" Stated with the conviction of someone who has been taught that the most important thing in the universe is their own comfort.
Equality means person A and B decides what person C and D can have. And they take a cut. So equality doesn´t lead to liberty. Liberty is what people want and will be the reason for riots in the street.
This country was founded on Individual responsibility and justice..If I want to be charitable..its my decision...obama and his co conspitors do not want equality of rights and opportunity, but of out come...
So, here is my idea of helping them out..need some help from me..I ask if the person voted for obama..if yes...see ya if no...I help because I think its all about country...and this adminstration is not...
The 65 million brain-dead lemmings who re-elected Obama last November are not ´we.´ They are ´them´ and they´re after what ´we´ have. Obama, McDermott and others of their ilk are the ones throwing gasoline on the fire and will be responsible for creating those mobs.
Apparently Jimmy gets his history lessons from movies. The French revolution had many catalysts but the left gloms onto just one: oppression. One of the big factors of the revolution was the huge debt France had piled up in financing all its wars. The monarch attempted to service this debt by taxing the crap out of the non-privileged to the point that the regular folks had little to nothing to spend on themselves let alone starting a business or buying land to farm. Bread became very exspensive as did wine. The priveleged few (think today´s polticians)were not willing to give up their booty so expected the working class (today´s middle and upper classes)to take up the slack.
McDermott, the former Seattle trick cyclist, sucks up 70% of the vote from his sheepled constituency in West Seattle - he is very pink almost red. The cautionary note here is for We the People to be aware that these staged tragedy events and attempts to take away legally owned guns are but bait - bait to incite riot, which will be the ultimate reason for mandatory confiscation of guns and abolition of the 2nd amendment. Mc Dermott is firing a starting salvo - watch out for similar red flags.Their deviousness exceeds our incredulity.

Ok then what? What happens when the mobs riot? Once you do away with wealth then all will be poor. No one to open businesses. No one to hire employees. No one to buy raw materials, office supplies or equipment.
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
Barack Obama delivered a statement on the passing of Nelson Mandela yesterday. During his speech he told about his first public speech on apartheid at Occidental College. “I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s life. My very first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics, was a protest against apartheid. I studied his words and his writings.” But, Barack Obama forgot to mention that his speech at Occidental was sponsored by Marxists and Weatherman terrorists. Barack Obama’s first public speech was at an Occidental College event
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
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
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
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
