Ann Coulter Battles Stossel, Calls
Libertarians ‘Pussies,’ And Gets
Booed By Room Full Of Students

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/22/2013 4:55:18 PM

What do you get when you invite outspoken conservative firebrand Ann Coulter to debate outspoken libertarian John Stossel in front of an audience of 1,000+ libertarian students? Fireworks, that’s what. On tonight’s episode of Fox Business Network’s Stossel, Coulter got into a heated debate with Stossel and the students over a variety of social issues, in the process calling libertarians “pussies” and receiving lots of jeering for her remarks. Once a year, Stossel (full disclosure: my former boss) tapes a show at the International Students for Liberty Conference in Washington, D.C. He typically brings on friendly libertarian guests,

Comments:
I liked Ann Coulter better when she was sharp and funny. Now, she´s just bitter and crude.

I liked Ann Coulter when she was a conservative.

I am not a Libertarian, but I acknowledge that government is inherantly liberal. Hence, the best method to achieve conservative goals are to use libertarian methods.

Agree with OP´s comment. It used to be fun to listen to her. But she´s like many of us here (me-self included) -- we age and we tend to complain more.

Personally, when discussing stuff, or the urge strikes to urp out some remark, I usually don´t say anything ... just stop and think, and then let someone else offer a comment.

The problem with libertarians is that they are not in the foxhole when things get bad. Fair weather friends. Unfortunately, the world has nasty people, doing nasty things to nice people.

If you watch the interchange, Stossel is good. The students, many of whom sopported and are unable to criticize the flawed Ron Paul, need to hear the truth and respond with an argument.

Paul was right on spending and limited government but fed at the public trough for 3 decades, published rascist tracts and stands shoulder to shoulder with some of the worst "Blame America, Firsters."

I was annoyed with National Review years ago when they ousted Ann. Of course back then she sounded like a nun compared to today.
I think I understand their decision better now.

and just how do Conservatives treat Libertarians on the issue of foreign policy? At the end of a sharp bayonet of course. It´s not only Libertarians that have been orphaned, but also conservative working class people. Their standard of living has steady eroded to the point that they´ve been forced on to Dear Leader´s food stamp rolls. If conservatives wish to save the country and the Constitution, they must do more than engage in racial and biographical fetishism, they must be willing to accommodate and/or thoughtfully respond to unorthodox political positions. Ideas still matter.

The bitterness is an issue, and although I don´t read her works, I like to know what her summation is on various issues, because she is usually right when everyone else says she is wrong. Ahem, Christie being an exception.

Stossel needs to quit smoking pot. Then he might understand that Gay Marriage is a vile perversion that undermines society and I don´t want my grandkids to even have to look at them. Disgusting. Run them out of town.

Now she calls names.

Not a conservative, in my book.

I´m gonna agree with #12. I saw her on the show. I liked the way she handled herself and she was right about them being pu-----.

Please, someone, just tell me why pot is so damn important and please, someone, just tell me why we have to have it.

If you have to use a mind-altering drug to enjoy yourself, you´re doing something wrong.

Ann is 100% correct. Thank you potheads for making it drug test a requiremen for employment. Thank you libertarian potheads for making drug addiction an expensive and "treatable DISEASE". And thanks especially for helping to re-elect the Jackass to a second term.

Between the two I fall farther into the Stossel camp. I hate druggies and I dont take gay marriages seriously, but the government has its claws into way too much. The vast majority of government business is none of the government´s business. I really think, in the balance, we would be far better off if they were out of most of it.

Stossel makes alot of sense in some areas, and so does Coulter.

I don´t just stop at Libertarians being pussies, it´s men in general who have become pussies. Sorry, but the guys from my generation and part of the previous generation only seem to get passionate when it´s the "game", whatever freaking game at the moment it is, the MPG of their car, and to be truthful, their POT. Libertarians at their best are small government, and their worst, its no rules and no policy, and the idea of "as long as it doesn´t hurt anyone else" is applied to everything, even when that is not a possibility.

Anyone over 35 reading this....go back and imagine YOUR dad being up in arms about his precious pot being legal. Imagine him campaigning to make sure that women can have late term abortions. Imagine your dad, instead of going out and working hard, worked instead to see how long he can stay on unemployment and "get what is owed him". Imagine having a dad who looks at the rich guy down the block with disdain and claims he only has that big house because he screwed over some other guy.

None of us could imagine having dads like that. Filtering it through the entertainment industry, men used to be like Jimmy Stewart and Clint Eastwood. Now they´re like Jason Sudeikis and Jon Stewart.

In an earlier article, Angel Codevilla referred to our shallow meritocracy, obsessed first and last w/credentials. Coulter is an exhibit A; a Cornell Grad of no discernible achievement; other than running her mouth and penning ´Dick, Jane & Spot´ level harangues, masquerading as "conservative thought". Embarrassingly but predictably, her fans have never noticed.

It´s easy to attack Ann because you think she´s "bitter". The nancy-boys attacked Sarah Palin because she was too "shrill" -- Remember?

It´s easy to find something you don´t like then harp on it. It´s a lot harder to respond to the arguments that Ann made. The crowd there was quick to boo (the crowd here, as well), but few are able to answer the points she made.

Ann Coulter wouldn´t be one of my friends, and I cringe when she purports to be Christian because I don´t know any Christians who always seem on the point of gouging someone´s eyes out, but there´s not one word attributed to her in this article that I disagree with. OK, maybe one. I´d´ve prolly said eunuchs so MrsTucky wouldn´t get mad at.

Her objection to weed is that because taxpayers are paying for health care, we are picking up the tab for unhealthy behaviors. Well, last time I checked, Ann Coulter smokes cigarettes. The point is where do you draw the line? Tobacco? Alcohol? Chicken-fried steak?

You can have my chicken-fried steak when you pull it from my cold, dead, hands.

I didn´t watch the video, but got the sense that this was just a rollicking good time. Ann likes to mix it up and likely enjoyed being booed. I don´t always agree with her, and she is somewhat strident at times, but she´s right more often than not.

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
