Republicans Deserved to Lose
National Review Online, by Thomas Sowell

Original Article

Posted By:tocsin, 1/1/2013 7:31:53 AM

The beginning of a new year is often a time to look forward and look back. The way the future looks, I prefer to look back — and depend on my advanced age to spare me from having to deal with too much of the future. If there are any awards to be given to anyone for what they did in 2012, one of those rewards should be for prophecy, if only because prophecies that turn out to be right are so rare. With that in mind, my choice for the prediction of the year award goes to Bret Stephens

Comments:
Dr Sowell, always the smartest man in the room imparts wisdom with which most Ldotters will agree.
Democrat-Lite has not/ does not work for the Pubbies and, more importantly, for The USA.
Happy New Year, all

This is exactly correct, and exactly why I have refused to give my money to the RNC for over 20 years now.

I´m tired of their stiff, canned, blown-dry candidates and their robotic incantations of talking points. George W. Bush, while not my ideal president, was elected twice because he was real.

FTA: "...[T]o this day, the Republican establishment still goes for pragmatic moderates who feed pablum to the public, instead of treating them like adults...

...It is not just Republican presidential candidates who cannot be bothered to articulate a coherent argument, instead of ad hoc talking points. Have you yet heard House Speaker John Boehner take the time to spell out why Barack Obama’s argument for taxing “millionaires and billionaires” is wrong?...

...Some people may take solace from the fact that there are some articulate Republicans like Marco Rubio who may come forward in 2016. But with Iran going nuclear and North Korea developing missiles that can hit California, it may be too late by then."

Comment: America´s greatness came through great leadership. We need more of it now.

Too late. Too late. The members of the congress and the executive and getting wealthy at such a rate that they don´t dare change anything and with half the country on some sort of welfare, there´s no way conservatives can ever get a firm foothold again.

Everything Dr. Sowell said is true, but I don´t like the headline. The Republicans Deserve to Lose indicates that this is about the Republicans, as in the Republican Party. It is NOT about them. It is about US, and WE are the ones who suffer when the Republicans lose, and we do not deserve it!

As long as you can vote to take someone else´s money, you will until it runs out. And the dems/pubbies all seem to operate on this now.
I´d be interested to know how many people have changed their voter´s designation in the last four years. And how many changed in November 2012. Yet the republicans state their big plan is to be more like the dems. Go figure.

The Republicans lost because they reverted back to their Rockefeller, Country Club Republican roots, and froze out the Tea Party. After all, who needs all those scruffy, smelly working class louts in their small time jobs, and mom and pop businesses who are trying to make it on their own without a handout from Uncle Sam. All the welfare recipients are going to vote for Obama anyway, and besides, The Tea Party types are all a bunch of racist rednecks. Isn´t that what the Democrats told us? And as for Sarah Palin, don´t even go there.

Oh I´m sure the pols had enough time to slam a few last night and backslap each other thinking they saved the world again. I am also with Sowell as to being bothered by the fact that a simple coherent message wasn´t forthcoming from the pubs explaining our real fiscal problems. Two months from now we get spending cuts. Oh goodie.

If only we could replace just one of the so-called leaders in congress with a brilliant man like Dr. Sowell... Our only non-violent choice at this point is to keep throwing the incumbents out until we finally get some real courage and intelligence in there such as that of Paul Ryan. Problem is, the hourglass is nearing the bottom for America.

Thanks for saying what needs to bed said. Given what the Repugs just did in the Senate, it will fall on deaf ears.

What can you say about COngress when they agree to spending cuts to raise the debt ceiling, but when time comes to implement the spending cuts, they then agree to not do the spending cuts.

We are suppose to believe that the next debt ceiling agreement will mean something?

Sowell is correct. And a larger point overlooked is that any party that nominates for POTUS the likes of Alf Landon, Wendell Wilkie, Dewey, Sassen, Eisenhower, Nixon, Dole, the Bush Buffoons, McCain and Doofus Romney; is most emphatically NOT a conservative party.

Half the people in this country have less-than-average intelligence. They´ll believe anything; the more outrageous, the more believable. The proper response these days is not to refute nonsense with facts, but with even more outrageous nonsense. THAT they´ll believe!

People started to get involved and fight back in 2010, but then we all got complacent again. We saw that some other people began to take the reins and began to fight, so we all went back to our little routine lives again. Then when the left started calling the TEA Parties bad names, more people gave up and so the few that were left began to go off in different directions and lost site of the people´s goals. Some let their heads get big with power, others started pushing other agendas, like social issues...and the focus was lost. Now we still sit on the sidelines once again and let the left think they defeated us, when in truth we defeated ourselves and we LET them win again. Yes, Romney´s campaign screwed up but we could have done more ourselves too. We can do more now...but I don´t see it happening. I think people are just accepting the mess we´re in and don´t care enough to change it.

Hopefully, Marco Rubio, who voted against the Republican debacle, will take what he has learned and apply it to his successful election in 2016. We should all be so fed up with the RINOS and Democrats that we will see the light of conservative action.

The Budget Sequester Is a Success
Wall Street Journal, by Stephen Moore    Original Article
Posted By: tocsin- 8/12/2013 5:10:02 AM     Post Reply
The biggest underreported story out of Washington this year is that the federal budget is shrinking and much more than anyone in either party expected. Consider the numbers: According to the Congressional Budget Office, annual outlays peaked at $3.598 trillion in fiscal 2011. After President Obama´s first two years in office, many in Washington expected that number to hit $4 trillion by 2014. Instead, spending fell to $3.537 trillion in fiscal 2012, and is on pace to fall below $3.45 trillion by the end of this fiscal year (Sept. 30). The $150 billion budget decline of 4%

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon moved Tuesday to ease the pain of mandatory, unpaid furloughs that civilian employees have had to bear for a month because of budgetary pressures, cutting the number of days off from 11 to six. Defense officials said the Pentagon found sufficient savings in the final months of the current fiscal year to lessen the burden on those who have had to take a day off a week without pay since early July. As a result, the final furlough day for most workers will be next week.

It has been a busy few weeks for the Securities and Exchange Commission. In May, the SEC charged two cities—Harrisburg, Pa., and South Miami, Fla.—with securities fraud for allegedly deceiving investors in their municipal bonds. This follows similar fraud charges against states, New Jersey in 2010 and Illinois in March, after SEC investigators uncovered what they called "material omissions" and "false statements" in bond documents related to those state´s pension funds. With Harrisburg, however, the SEC has gone further and charged the city government with "securities fraud

A Person of Privilege?

Lois Lerner, the IRS official in charge of tax-exempt groups, took her too-clever-by-half act to Congress yesterday and may have waived her right to claim her Fifth Amendment privilege in the process. Appearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, she couldn’t resist citing a little history, bragging on her public service, instructing the committee as to the purpose of the Fifth Amendment, and proclaiming her innocence of everything the committee might be interested in — all before asserting her Fifth Amendment privilege. Chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) was a bit taken aback.

Earlier this year, the Government launched the clasp for those who had taken part in the air offensive during the Second World War, but stopped short of awarding a medal, as campaigners had been calling for. But figures suggest that barely half of those eligible for the lesser award have so far applied, with veterans snubbing the “pathetic” award. (snip)only a clasp, rather than a medal, as “cheese-paringly” mean, adding: “What did those men do except lay down their lives for their duty? My father would have been raging – I know that to be sure.”

A jury in Pennsylvania has convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell of three counts of murder, one count of involuntary manslaughter, and several counts of performing illegal late-term abortions at his facility in West Philadelphia. Gosnell is eligible for the death sentence, an end that would be as close to justice as earthly powers can mete out in this episode. The English language does not contain a word sufficient for describing the crimes of Kermit Gosnell; “murder” will do, but only for legal purposes. Gosnell’s human abattoir is the logical endpoint of our morally fraudulent national approach to abortion,

The expanding Internal Revenue Service scandal could hardly be any more Drudgeriffic. Well, maybe if in addition to singling out groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names, the agency had purchased a few billions rounds of hollow-point ammo. Maybe then. But even as is, the scandal is looking pretty bad and getting worse. The Wall Street Journal is now reporting that the IRS also “scrutinized conservative groups for raising political concerns over government spending, debt and taxes or even for advocating making America a better place to live.” We’ll see where this eventually goes.

The Trials of Father MacRae
Wall Street Journal, by Dorothy Rabinowitz    Original Article
Posted By: tocsin- 5/11/2013 8:32:50 AM     Post Reply
Last Christmas Eve, his 18th behind bars, Catholic priest Gordon MacRae offered Mass in his cell at the New Hampshire state penitentiary. A quarter-ounce of unfermented wine and the host had been provided for the occasion, celebrated with the priest´s cellmate in attendance. Sentenced to 33½-67 years following his 1994 conviction for sexual assault against a teenage male, Father MacRae has just turned 60. The path that led inexorably to that conviction would have been familiar to witnesses of the manufactured sex-abuse prosecutions that swept the nation in the 1980s and early 1990s

Next week, the Senate will begin making changes to and, hopefully, improve the immigration-reform legislation I introduced with several colleagues last month. This part of the process is a chance to fix America´s broken immigration system and end today´s de facto amnesty for those who live here illegally. It will also show that Washington can work when leaders listen to the American people and invoke their wisdom in debates and legislative work. In January, I outlined my principles for conservative immigration reform in these pages—principles that guided the drafting of this legislation.

Last summer, in the dead of night, three peace activists penetrated the exterior of Y-12 in Tennessee, supposedly one of the most secure nuclear-weapons facilities in the United States. A drifter, an 82-year-old nun and a house painter. They face trial next week on charges that fall under the sabotage section of the U.S. criminal code. And if they had been terrorists armed with explosives, intent on mass destruction? That nightmare scenario underlies the government’s response to the intrusion. This is the story of two competing worldviews, of conscience vs. court, of fantasy vs. reality, of history vs. the future.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of
