Ann Coulter: Libertarian college students
´like liberals,´ consumed by ´groupthink´

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Donttaxmebro, 3/19/2013 5:14:05 PM

On Dennis Prager’s radio show on Monday, conservative commentator Ann Coulter offered her takeaways from last weekend’s Conservative Political Action Conference held outside Washington, D.C., where Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul won the event’s presidential straw poll. Coulter, author of “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama,” explained how that happened, which led to her critique of the libertarian movement within college campuses and its antics. “’How did that happen?’ you’re wondering,” she said. “Ron Paul used to win every year because these libertarian

Comments:
There are lots of reasons not to buy wholesale into the Rand Paul thing just yet. The filibuster was cool, but I think he´s a little bit of a fad for right now.

Need to wait and see, especially with the immigration proposal he has put forth.

The lines are beginning to be drawn. Conservatives either moving to the right or left. Sorry but Rand Paul is not a fad. Rather you like him or not, he´s been consistent over the years. So, will the GOP migrate towards the RINO´s or will it stand for lesser Government and taxes.

Coulter needs to explain the difference between libertarian ´groupthink´ and the groupthink that goes on inside the GOP.

The political opinions of students are worthless, not because of groupthink or even ideology, but because they are students. They are too young, inexperienced and uneducated to opine profitably on important matters. It is a grave mistake to encourage them to vote. They are supposed to be studying and acquiring an education, not delivering judgments on complex affairs they cannot begin to understand. It is a massive, perhaps lethal failure of modern education that it fails to teach the intellectual humility upon which genuine growth and learning depend.

"Now each man judges well the things he knows, and of these he is a good judge. And so the man who has been educated in a subject is a good judge of that subject, and the man who has received an all-round education is a good judge in general. Hence a young man is not a proper hearer of lectures on political science; for he is inexperienced in the actions that occur in life, but its discussions start from these and are about these; and, further, since he tends to follow his passions, his study will be vain and unprofitable, because the end aimed at is not knowledge but action. And it makes no difference whether he is young in years or youthful in character; the defect does not depend on time, but on his living, and pursuing each successive object, as passion directs. For to such persons, as to the incontinent, knowledge brings no profit; but to those who desire and act in accordance with a rational principle knowledge about such matters will be of great benefit." Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics, Book I.

"The virtue of a thing is relative to its proper work. Now there are three things in the soul which control action and truth-sensation, reason, desire" Aristotle Nicomachean Ethics Chaper VI verse 2.
The Internet gives everyone the opportunity to be a dilattante and a bore. Which is exactly what Ms. Coulter is.
The more I listen to her, the more she resembles a performance artist. Her character is shrill, piquant and bombastic...much like Andy Kaufman´s work. In fact, I postulate that Ms. Coulter is Andy Kaufman!

Coulter is smart. But she´s lost her appeal; for me, and I think for a lot of, well college students. Her condescension makes here more stuck-up than anything.

And, I´m glad Rand Paul is on our side. We can deal with our differences with Paul when the time comes. Now, is the time to deal with Democrats, and Paul is doing a great job of that, unlike Coulter.

Ms. Coulter doesn´t know her butt from page 1, and from here on out I will avoid her published musings. It´s nigh on impossible to find two libertarians who agree on more than five issues, let alone accuse the lot of them of "groupthink". She´s either disingenuous or clueless and either way we don´t need her.

There are lots of things I dislike about Ann Coulter but she´s right about young libertarian group think, and she´s right about Rand Paul. I loved his filibuster stunt, it´s the type of thing we should be doing more of...but I´m certainly not sold on "all" of him. Whatever you do, just remember, he VOTED FOR Chuck Hagel.

Ad hominem attacks on Ann Coulter because of disagreement over college libertarianism are most unfortunate. Those who have not read and refuse to read her books are depriving themselves of useful, documented information presented in an enjoyable, entertaining style.

The problem is not Ann Coulter and it is not libertarianism, whatever people mean or understand by that flexible term. The problem -and it is a very grave one- is the utterly preposterous, irrational, historically unprecedented delusion that teenagers and late adolescents, i.e. students and others, could possibly have anything worthwhile to think or say about politics, world affairs, social problems or other complex and intractable adult problems that have bedeviled the best and most experienced minds throughout all of human history. From whence, exactly, would the wisdom of young people about such matters spring?

This ridiculous idea -that children and students have anything to contribute to political discourse- is by no means an ancient one. It is in fact extremely modern. It really took wing in the Sixties. Since then the fantastic notion has arisen that students go to college or even high school, not to learn, but to teach.

It is not an ancient or longstanding practice, but it has happened before. Readers of Book VIII of Plato´s Republic will find it described there, along with its origins and consequences.

Neal Boortz: Social Conservatives Will

Big Government, by Jeff Poor    Original Article
Posted By: Donttaxmebro- 12/27/2013 10:16:23 AM     Post Reply
On Thursday, semi-retired radio talker Neal Boortz predicted the republican party will not win control of the U.S. Senate in the 2014 midterm elections, despite all the pitfalls the democrats and president Barack Obama are facing, particularly with regards to ObamaCare. The reason, Boortz said, would be the GOP’s tendency to run on issues related to social conservatism. Boortz explained the importance to the republic for a GOP win next year while guest hosting Sean Hannity’s Thursday radio show: this whole thing about Phil Robertson and what have you – it speaks a lot to what we have

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer insisted the divide within the Republican Party has been exaggerated, adding that Republicans disagree over strategy but not ideology. “[I] think this whole thing is as you say very much blown up by the liberal media because it’s a great dramatic story,” Krauthammer said. “But here’s the fundamental contradiction. I think this analysis is wrong.

During the online-only portion of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer laid out his theory on what Obamacare’s real intended purpose is: an instrument to redistribute wealth. Krauthammer made that claim in his column last week, but he explained how it works in practice to host Bret Baier and co-panelists former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano and The Hill associate editor A.B. Stoddard. That panel was presented with a viewer who asked what would happen if an individual couldn’t pay an insurance provider in the event of some

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough hammered President Barack Obama for what he called lies during the sales job for his 2010 health care law. Scarborough was asked by Hewitt if he had any idea how many people would ultimately lose their health care coverage because of that law. Scarborough replied by saying many more Americans would be impacted by that law than what then-President George W. Bush had said in his 2003 state of the union speech regarding Iraq trying to procure yellow cake uranium from Niger.

On Wednesday’s edition of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer faced off against left-leaning show anchor Jon Stewart on conservative ideology and the way it is presented. In this rare appearance on Stewart’s program, Krauthammer was promoting his new book, “Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics,” and explained how in working on the book he realized when he had made the transformation from liberal to conservative. STEWART: Thirty years — do you ever look back on some of these writings and think, ‘What was I thinking?’ KRAUTHAMMER: It’s worse than that.

At an event in Birmingham, Ala.

WASHINGTON — Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob Corker called out fellow Republicans Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Sen. Mike Lee of Utah Thursday, accusing them of delaying a vote on the bill to fund the government and prevent a government shutdown to suit their own desires for publicity. Cruz, earlier this week, held the floor for over 21 hours, speaking in defense of defunding Obamacare with that government funding bill. He asked other Republican senators to join him in voting against moving forward on a bill passed by the House , which would fund the government while defunding Obamacare.

On Dennis Miller’s radio show on Monday, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer said that because of American weakness in the Middle East, “the chances of an Israeli strike on Iran have risen, are probably double.” Krauthammer, author of “Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics,” called the United States’ position in the region “the weakest” in memory and blamed that on President Barack Obama. “We’re the weakest we’ve been in the region in memory,” he said. “The big deal in the region was 1970, when Egypt kicked out the Soviets and aligned itself

On Saturday on the Fox News Channel, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton harshly criticized President Barack Obama handling of the United States’ involvement in Syria, calling him the weakest president since James Buchanan, Abraham Lincoln’s predecessor. “This is absolutely stunning,” Bolton said. “I’ve been trying to fill in the blank of the following sentence: ‘Barack Obama is the weakest president since…’ And I have to say, the best I can come up with is James Buchanan who watched the country dissolve into the Civil War.

Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer predicted on Friday that should President Barack Obama make a misstep when dealing with Syria, he could spark a “major regional war.” In his column published in Friday’s Washington Post, Krauthammer alluded to the “guns of August,” a reference to 1914 and the build-up that led to the start of World War I. That reference was a comparison to the current situation in Middle East involving Syria and a pending U.S. strike over the use of chemical weapons, and how those seemingly isolated events could unfold into something bigger.

Maybe you rationalized it by reasoning that you had a familiarity with the book, or knew who the author was, or what the story was about, or had glanced at its Wikipedia page. Or maybe you had tried to read the book, even bought it and set it by your bed for months unopened, hoping that it would impart what was in it merely via proximity (if that worked, please email me).

Late Thursday afternoon, the Senate passed a $1.1 trillion spending measure that´s best described as a fix -- fix, as in an act of Republican perfidy and chicanery. The process was rigged by Speaker Boehner and Senate Minority Leader McConnell (doubtless with a wink and a nod from Harry Reid) to push through the gargantuan spending measure while giving House and Senate Republicans cover on ObamaCare funding. The bill was an incomprehensible 1,582 pages. Here´s how it worked. House Republicans passed the spending bill with a provision to strip funding from ObamaCare.

A federal commission rejected three states’ requests to ask voters for proof of citizenship, issuing a complex decision Friday that said it’s up to the national government, not the states, to decide what to include on registration forms. Under the motor-voter law, federal officials distribute voter-registration forms in all of the states. Arizona, Kansas and Georgia all asked that those forms request proof of citizenship, but the federal Election Assistance Commission rejected that in a 46-page ruling.

(Video) Pennsylvania’s voter ID law, among the nation’s most stringent, was struck down Friday morning by a state judge. Commonwealth Court Judge Bernard L. McGinley ruled that the law, requiring almost all voters to present photo identification prior to voting, was an unreasonable burden on voters. He said the free voter ID that residents were entitled to under the law was insufficiently available, only at 71 drivers license centers located across the state. Several counties had no such centers and others were only open two days a week, leading McGinley to rule that the law “unnecessarily burden[s] the hundreds of thousands

A bipartisan Senate intelligence committee report on Benghazi was released this week, which placed blame on the State Department and intelligence agencies for the failures that led to the death of four Americans on Sept. 11, 2012. Discussing the report’s findings with Piers Morgan, Sen. John McCain laid into the State Department and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for their mishandling of the situation—but that’s when things took a rather unusual turn. Morgan actually attempted to deflect some of the blame to Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed during the attack:
