An Obama voter´s cry of despair
CNN, by Nathaniel P. Morris

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 11/2/2013 5:34:19 AM

I´m reading a terribly sad book these days. It´s a book that I thought would uplift me during the doldrums of second-year medical school, and renew in me a sense of hope. It´s called "The Audacity to Win," and it´s a memoir of Barack Obama´s 2008 presidential campaign. When I´m finished with my patient write-ups at night and get into bed, the book returns me to a time when politics inspired millions and speeches could take your breath away. The election turned out to be a landslide, and news anchors paused to reflect on the historic nature of the hour. My classmates

And you thought all Harvard medical students are smart?

This clown voted for Obama twice and is surprised by who Obama turned out to be (in contrast to most of us, who spotted this statist phony from day one). And he still apparently thinks Obamacare is wonderful. Guess when he enters the medical profession he will be in for yet another unpleasant surprise.

#1, the worst thing is that the writer wants Obama to "remember who he is". He doesn´t understand that all of the things which he sees as a failure by this Administration are "who Obama is."

There are two issues with this fiasco: one with the actual website, which is an amazing bit of incompetence, and the other with the actual plan, which anyone with a brain could see would never work.

The media has carried Obama´s water for years, with record deficits, unemployment, and scandals ignored. Obama intentionally planned this disaster to begin in 2014 because he didn´t want it to muck up his re-election.

Many of our problems might be solved by raising the voting age to 30. It is a mistake to encourage young people to vote. How are they supposed to have acquired the wisdom and experience to judge complex matters - especially if they, like the writer of this piece, have been in school all their lives?

Expansion of the franchise may not have caused our decline, but it has certainly hastened it. The machine - the U.S. system of government- was simply not designed to run the way it is being run, i.e. on universal enfranchisement. The results were predictable. It is a classic case of GIGO: garbage in, garbage out. It is going to get worse, for Democrats want convicted felons to be able to vote.

#7, I have thought about the need to raise the voting age too; however, many people of my own middle-age group act and think like self-absorbed, gullible, self-important, and petulant children. If we were to raise the voting age to 65, there would still be many, like this author´s own parents who apparently were busy gathering newspaper articles about their faux messiah in 2008. I wonder if they made a scrapbook to remember the gloriousness of the "mmm, mmm, mmm" time by. The things Nathaniel Morris sees as Obama´s great successes are, to me, among the many disasters for our republic.

One of our problems is Harvard itself. All the leftist statist professors there are turning out affirmative action idiots like obama and self loathing whites like Nathaniel in droves. The so called Ivy League schools should be shutdown and the Marxist profs, like the ones that obama was drawn to, sent packing. The so called best and brightest from these colleges and universities are destroying this country with all their drivel about diversity and fairness.

Republican obstructionism cannot explain allowing the bugging of foreign leaders... having drones strike innocent children overseas... the National Security Agency collect data on the private lives of Americans...prosecuting whistle-blowers who reveal government wrongdoing... assassinating Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen, without a trial...shirking public funding and spending limits during presidential campaigns.

Oh sure it can and will and CNN will help make sure that the Free Stuff Army, you know, the people who´ll soon be your patients, continue to blame it all on anyone or anything but their Saviorness.

It makes me yearn for the many promises that disappeared.

Nate, to steal from Paul Simon, you;re "Still Stupid After All These Years." The title of your article should be "I Miss The Way I Felt When I Believed In Fairy Dust." Good luck with the Free Stuff Army. You voted for it. Oh, and btw, new concept you´ve NEVER heard of before in your life; decisions have consequences, but it doesn´t look like you´ll ever grasp that. Looks like your "mojo" is in the way.

My policy on this is that the people who voted for Obama were NOT ignorant. They were NOT misled. I reject the notion that they are even surprised.

All this chaos and damage was intentional. I will not allow them to run from their decision, nor let them hide.

They voted for Obama on purpose, and especially for this purpose: to keep him in power long enough to make sure Obamacare became established. They did it because they thought they would benefit personally. They didn´t care who or how Obamacare was going affect as long as they got a benefit.

They are NOT crying out in despair. These are the lying tears of the swindler and standard procedure in the escape phase of a successful fraud.

Isn´t it funny to think of someone who was so young talking about the "need for change".......as if he had any idea how things "should be".

I have known and worked with many people from Harvard. The one thing I feel like I can see in all of them is an attitude that they know everything and they are helping everyone else by sharing their vast knowledge.

They are quite "educated", but no better suited for leadership than anyone else. In fact, they can be very dangerous.

My observations on liberals is that they fall into 2 categories.
#1 - not so bright, but idealistic. Believe we can have equality in everything( ie: salaries, insurance, vehicles, homes, etc) without any loss of "freedom" - utopia.
#2 - intelligent but evil liberals. they understand that to achieve liberal utopia of equality they need the thumb of government control and ultimately a loss of freedom is worth it for the end game.

I agree with all the above. It just underscores the truth that youthful voters are deficient in reasoning ability. They have no life experience.

This is why the Marxist/Socialists took control of the schools, to mold and shape those minds of mush.

I know that both words start with an "h", but it´s their meaning that Nathaniel must be confused by. After all Obama went to Harvard and he surely knows the difference.

hippocratic (as in the oath all graduating doctors swear to, which kinda states "First do no harm". Supposedly it doesn´t, but it comes close.)

hypocrite:
1.a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.
2.a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, especially one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements.

A few facts about this article...

1) This fellow writes an article about Mr. Obama covering, among other things, many of Mr. Obama´s failures the past 5 years.

2) This fellow writes said article without once finding need to use the word "competence" (or any derivative thereof).

3) This fellow is studying medicine at Harvard Medical School. Apparently, he wants to be a doctor.

A review of these facts leads one to conclude that this fellow got into Harvard Medical School, the same way that Mr. Obama got into Harvard Law School (and the White House, later on).

I like all the above comments. It´s too bad this young man didn´t have parents who taught him critical thinking skills. They sound like the typical liberal. How could anyone buy the rhetoric that Obama was peddling? "We are the ones we have been waiting for!" That one sentence told me everything I needed to know about Obama. He was prone to hyperbole, had an ego the size of Texas, and humility was foreign to him. He was a fraud from the get go. His supporters didn´t want to see it. Liberals are a danger to any society because they are so easily duped. This young man and his parents are shining examples of that. Reality will really hit him in the face when he learns that his profession is not going to provide him with the lifestyle he expected. That will be his ultimate epiphany. I can´t say I am sorry for him. When you reject the truth because it doesn´t fit your world view, life will slap you up side the head.

This is a very depressing article. This young man has no idea what this nation was founded to be, no concept of the idea of limited government. At such a young age, bought into the "hope and change" BS. Change from what? To What? He had no idea this "young team of visionaries" was talking about fundamental change, changing from what this nation was founded to be. Of course, now he is upset at the promises Zero has failed to keep, after listing his "great and varied accomplishments". And as we read in his article, his parents are obviously complete idiots. Our youth is clearly not being taught our constitution and basic civics. It is difficult to see how the US survives as founded.

Mr. Morris, fortunately our Founding Fathers had much more experience in human nature than you. Voting is not your just your civic duty. It is truly your life. Everything, all the time, forever. That ripple in the pond which touches all around, forever and ever. Persons such as you will be held responsible when judgment is given as to the cause of America ceasing to be.

I´m not so sure Morris "gets it." He obviously bought into the hope and change hype and even though Barry has been exposed as an incompetent Marxist thug, Morris still clearly believes the hype and would vote for the fraud a third time. This further confirms my belief that the best and the brightest aren´t attending Harvard.

It may be opinion but that doesn´t excuse the writer´s trip hammer use of the pronoun ´I´ - much like his fallen idol.

And when will they shut up about Gitmo? These people aren´t going anywhere because they can´t go anywhere else. 250 of the most vile murderous scum are nothing compared to the multitudes running riot throughout the world.

It´s a purely symbolic issue which is why it´s attractive to lefties eager to show their correct mode of thought.

Due to the extremes on both sides of the aisle, the polls showing favorability ratings can be very misleading, unless the poll allows the person polled to identify their primary issue that caused their negative rating.
So don´t be comforted by assuming that the negative feelings reflect people coming around to our opinion.

The extreme left is not satisfied because he has not managed to fully turn us into a socialist state in 5 years (although they should give him a C for his effort).
The liberal idealists who might lean toward liberitarian opinions are viewing him negatively due to his NSA and drone activities.
The yellow dog democrats, who naively thought their vote for a black president would get us over the hump of prejudice in this country, are shocked at what he has done that has cost them money.
And then there are those of us who knew all along what he was all about.

#40, so well stated! Everything we do resounds; we just usually do not realize the extent.

Obviously, this kid who is trying to become a doctor is easily swayed. It makes me wonder how he approaches everything else in his life - touchy feely is somehow better than logic and good sense, plus values and morals with a knowledge and an understanding of history.

Start looking for a place where English is spoken so you won´t be a union employee doctor.

Why is it that all I had to know about Obama is that he wanted to fundamentally transform America? Regardless of my ideology I understand that the whole purpose of the Constitution was to prevent ANY president or faction from changing the fundamentals of our government without going through the amnendment process outlined in the document itself.

Obama told us he was going to violate his oath before ever taking it.

This Washington Examiner headline says it all: "Obamacare shock: $12,600 deductible, 40 percent co-pay, zero competition"

It´s obvious that Obamacare is designed to fail. It´s a Rube-Goldberg contraption. Just think of how much simpler it would be if it was paid via income taxes. The same middle class chumps will pay for it but the rubes (myself included) won´t face the sticker shock.

That has been the plan from day one (sadly by elites in both parties). So Nathaniel, you have a bright future ahead at a Kaiser style healthcare mill. Good luck.

Pardon a second post but fellow Ldotters are on a roll this morning. You´ve given me three more words starting with an "h" that fit Obama and his Harvard attendance:

hyperbole - see #35´s post
humility - Obama doesn´t have it- see #35
hype - see #41 - it has a slightly different meaning than "hyperbole"

Also thanks to #40 for the Chinese proverb - I will smile all day long over than one and will pass it along for others to enjoy.

Hooray for Lucianne´s readers. Not fooled twice, nor even once, as to whom we have in the White House. Not impressed with the cries of angst that are oozing through the floorboards, nor foolishly optimistic that at last most will see the light. Readers are right, this sad little soul would vote him in a third time given the chance.
When and if his ilk start screaming for impeachment, we´ll know they have truly turned. Till then, kill the kudos!

Most or all of this starts at home within the family and is affirmed at corrupted schools. Then it´s off to Harvard to follow in the footsteps of our glorious leader.

What ever happened to that old saying ´fool me once and its your fault, fool me twice and its my fault´. If he hasn´t learned that by the age of 5, then he´s hopeless and this article only confirms that he doesn´t have a grip on life.

As someone said above, he will probably vote for Hillary in the next election, instead of someone who tried to warn people like him of the dangers ahead.

Hey kid, you´re smart enough to get into Harvard but not smart enough to grasp when somebody´s lying thru his teeth.

You voted for this liar twice? I´ll be checking the credentials at every doctor´s office I enter, as I do NOT want to be treated by some fool out of Harvard Med.

With all due respect to our genial hostess and staff--This guy doesn´t sound too smart to me, and I don´t think he "gets it". He´s basically still whining about those mean Republicans, and that 0 isn´t being leftist enough for him. And he still thinks 0 can turn it around.

Poor kid still thinks what Obama is doing is good.

Yet, of all of the examples that I have listed above, they largely seem to be of the administration´s own choosing. That is what troubles me most of all.

Right, Nathaniel, so knowing that, don´t you think you should re-assess the man you think is so great? It´s not "the administration´s" fault. It´s Obama´s fault -- directly.

What in God´s name does it take for young people to understand that this POTUS is a dictator-in-waiting?

Obama: ´I want us to get our mojo back,´ he said. ´We´ve got to remember who we are.´

Here´s the thing... the world is starting to figure out who Obama really is. He´s done a good job (with the help of the MSM) masking who/what he really is. Nate thinks Obama is simply off track and needs to get back to his old, perfect being. Its pathetic that Nate still thinks Obama can be rehabilitated.

The educational system and the media in this country have done this to us.

Wonderfully intuitive thread...you´ve all outdone yourselves. I have just a couple of points to add. This young man is a prime example of the dumbed-down teaching our children receive today, along with political and environmental brainwashing. And his generation all too often, refuse to allow the ´other side´ to be heard. I have a few neighbors who voted twice for Obama. They only watch the lib influenced news sources. You cannot talk to them in intelligent terms.

Hey, c´mon, the child moonbat actually came out and admitted that maybe the NSA spying is not the fault of the Republicans. Not exactly 1.5 steps down the road of logic. Maybe 0.05.

And yes, that´s about the best we can expect from a Harvard-trained collectivist, because I know a whole lot more of them who would dig up fever-swamp "evidence" that the Halliburton weather machine also controls the NSA mainframes.

This doctor in training illustrates the liberal mindset well. Liberalism is the desire to hang on to the fantasyland of childhood and refuse to accept the responsibilities of adulthood. This allows them to suspend their better judgement and believe the expansive promises of someone like Obama for some utopian dream world. Recall when Obama promised to lower the sea level no one remarks that this is impossible even for the POTUS. The promise is taken seriously in the general euphoria of many other impossible promises. Liberals will deceive themselves because they are eager to believe in their fantasies of childhood!

I still don´t think Republicans and Conservatives understand to what extent most people have been brainwashed in this country. Bill Whittle recently got it, describing a battle between left and right in which the left has complete air supremacy. A majority of people have a negative view of Republicans, the tea party, etc. but they cannot tell you why. Think about that. They hate people Palin, Limbaugh, Cruz; they think Obama cares about them; they think Romney hates poor people - but they cannot cite one fact to support their views. And they don´t care but they will vote accordingly. If you understand that, then you will understand why this otherwise intelligent young man can stare reality in the face and still cling to the illusion.

Of course this Harvard med student is crying in despair.

Just like all his elite Ivy League brethren it´s just dawning on him that he is, in fact, dumber than Sarah Palin. Yes, that Sarah Palin, the Caribou Barbie who supposedly is dumber than a bag of hammers because she went to a state school. Well, it only took her five minutes to see through this Obama guy and all his lies -- it took the ivy league elite four years (and counting).

The tidbit about the author´s parents saving all the newspapers from Obama´s election is perfection. So telling. Liberals are pack animals. It´s very important to them to be seen in their own eyes and in the eyes of the pack as "good" people. Saving the newspapers and papering the walls of their little eco-friendly solar-powered caves is a testament and public show of how good they truly are. Liberals -- yuck.

Eve was undoubtedly the smartest woman who ever lived, as she was created perfect by God in the Garden of Eden, yet even she was deceived by the silver-tongue of Satan.

Human intellect is no indicator of common sense, nor is it a guard against deception. Had these Obama voters had even the basic knowledge of Biblical Doctrines they would have seen through this wolf in sheep´s clothing.

We all knew he would be who he was in the Senate in Illinois. The huge red flag was his voting for post-delivery infanticide... twice!

People here (posting comments) are all over this guy "like white on rice."

Reality break for you, in case you´re shocked at this unrealistic wannabe
professional health care provider...

Most medical students really aren´t all that good or that smart...
Many Harvard people really are not realistic or well-informed, but rather biased
and of course snooty about their own political correctness...

Having dealt with all of the above for close to a half century of adulthood...
Allow me to advise you that lawyers and doctors and others of similar ilk
are vastly overrated in their abilities and also their intentions and integrity...

It´s a Wizard of Oz phenomenon...
Much of the malarkey handed out to folks in the form of diplomas and awards
and so forth is, if not fully bogus, at least far short of the mark in meeting expectations.

There is absolutely no shortage of fraud in any profession.

And many of our leaders, too, are fraudsters.
Get over it.
Or not... and impeach and prosecute.

Dear Mr. Morris:

I am not sure as to your motivations for penning your thoughts for CNN. To seek absolution one generally has to admit ones sins, a concept which appears foreign to your frame of reference. I am writing in response to inform you that your capacity for self delusion is disturbing to me, a potential future patient of your profession.

Your essay indicated that you are a second year medical student at Harvard and that you cast your first ballot for Mr. Obama in 2008. Those metrics would indicate that you are between 23 and 26 years of age. You confess to being surprised that President Obama´s policies and performance have not met the rhetoric of candidate Obama. You found Mr. Romney´s campaign disjointed, yet ignored all of the warning signs from the first term to cast a second ballot for President Obama.

Given your inability to critically analyze evidence (or symptoms in you profession) one has to hope that your specialty is Dermatology rather than Infectious Diseases!

I do not accept that your youth an inexperience with life led you to the decision to cast your vote for a man with absolutely no accomplishments to his name. No sir, it was simple intellectual laziness that allowed you to feel good voting for a black man based upon the color of his skin rather than the content of his character. Had you analyzed his character you would have realized that he supports wealth redistribution, he wants to shrink the U.S. Economy, he wants to reduce the standard of living for all Americans except for him and his friends.

How did I know this? By ignoring what he said in speeches and paying attention to who he associated with BEFORE he started campaigning for president.

You sir voted for a man who advocated illicit drug use.
You voted for a man who voted against a law to protect an infant who survives an abortion.
You voted for a man who believes that government creates wealth.
You voted for a man who believes Israel is a threat to world peace but thinks that the Muslim Brotherhood just needs to refine its message.

And you did this not once but twice.

Frankly if given the choice of seeking your care for a medical condition or the assistance of a local veterinarian, I would choose the later simply because he is not distracted by mellifluous words, as he considers the evidence before his very eyes.

Be gone and return when you truly understand what your misguided desire for utopia has wrought on your countrymen.

I have another take on Morris; that he has written an article that is at the very edge of what could be printed in the captured media, and has gone to the very edge of permitted criticism in his environment. The examples he chooses, like the skirting of campaign funding, for example, shows me that he can reason and is presenting a case to his fellow socialists. The guy´s life would be hell were he to go farther, everyone he probably knows or who has power over him would make it so he´d have a hard time finishing med school.

Note that none of the "issues" he writes about are issues he has had experience with in life.

Those issues have been implanted into his thoughts and rather successfully since he apparently feels so passionately about them.

So without actual experience involved, he is merely regurgitating political slogans.

For me that is the tragedy: that he can be so "possessed" by the political class´s propaganda.

This is a classic liberal bemoaning the fact that BO hasn´t been liberal enough or good enough. Nataniel wants more liberal agenda items carried out and he wants peace NOW, even though the world is filled with people who want us dead.

Poor fool.

Yes, they had high hopes for BO but BO´s biggest obstacle is the liberal ideology he espouses. It flat out doesn´t work. That´s why the economy has stalled for 5 years. That´s why health care won´t work (the botched website is only the tip of the iceberg). That´s why the world is slipping into chaos and no nations respect us anymore. That´s why government is out of control.

That´s also the reason that BO is unable to find any agreement with the Republicans. His far left addenda is irrational and unsupportable.

And Nathaniel still doesn´t get it.

#12 and others: the sad thing is he is too stupid to be doctor. Harvard and many other big medical schools only care about what the students are able to memorize. This is why we have such lousy, but expensive treatment. They are taught that if you have condition x, apply pharmaceutical product y. When are schools at any level going to teach students to think.

PS: Nate, Obama had an "easy win" in the electoral college, but it was no landslide. Reagan´s second term was a landslide.

Lenin would have called this guy a "useful idiot" and would have been correct.

However, just because he´s an idiot politically doesn´t mean he´s an idiot in other areas.

Over the years, I´ve come to the conclusion that the mind is like a searchlight in the darkness. The area it is focused on is brilliantly-lit, but everywhere else is darkness. You have to learn to swing that searchlight around to other areas to avoid unpleasantness.

In this case, the author might have a pretty good searchlight, but he is pointing it in the direction of his career - he doesn´t know that it might be a good idea to swing that searchlight to other areas. If he doesn´t eventually learn to do this, he will continue to suffer injury from surprise attacks from the things in the dark. If he had only thought to swing his searchlight around, he could have avoided these disasters. This has already happened to him twice from Obama sneaking up on him in the dark. I wonder if he will ever learn to swing his searchlight around to other areas (like politics!).

And another thing Nathaniel.

You complain about Republican "obstructionism." We have a right and even a duty to oppose policies which we don´t like and/or which are bad policies.

If there were´t opposition to it, I could become president of General Motors or even the United States.

Policies must work even in the face of opposition.

If there weren´t crooks in the world I could open up the lowest cost grocery store in town: no locks, no cash registers, no security etc etc - I could save a bundle.

But there are. You sound like the golfer who would have shot par except for the double bogey on 1, 3, 5, 11, 13, and 14, the triple bogey on 16 and 17, and the 12 on 4, and the bogies on every other hole.

Diplomatic security that depends on the absence of a certain type of youtube video to preserve the lives of our personnel is not very robust security.

You have fallen for a marketing brochure for an unviable product.

Clarice Feldman and her article on the preface to George Orwell´s Animal Farm gives an epiphany of the concept of national narrative or common consensus. National group think.

We have seen Alinsky and Marx sociology and the resulting knowledge of propaganda and the setting of the national narrative to arrive at a common consensus. As people wake up or look in a different spotlit area as above poster spoke, the common consensus is changed and direction changes.


Pop Media, academia, celebrity worship, all have made this fraud possible but also for the 49 % who didn´t buy into the far out-left common narrative, we are inoculated from a similar worldwide imposter.

The nation now in a place where the light might shine on liberty but the big IF is will the Tea Party common consensus mess it all up with inner party head butting and competition when cooperation is needed more than ever?

Time for the prayers to pray and the politicians lead the way. We can´t have that moral common man down the street some yearn fo because we need politicians who can influence the direction of the national narrative. Ask Orwell and Clarice.

Climate change is damaging fish brains and
causing them to lose their survival instinct,
researchers warn

Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/15/2014 10:32:21 PM     Post Reply
Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn´t know about it or couldn´t get a drone there in time to strike. U.S. officials won´t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States. In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda´s crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen. Al-Wuhayshi, the No. 2 leader of al Qaeda globally and the head of al Qaeda

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld says he has ´no idea´ whether his tax returns and payments are accurate. Rumsfeld made the claims in a letter that was sent to the IRS and shared on Twitter on Tuesday - and says he sends the same letter to the agency every year. He also says he doesn´t even know if earlier tax documents are accurate for him and his wife. ´I have sent in our federal income tax and our gift tax returns for 2013,´ it reads. ´As in prior years, it is important for you to know that I have absolutely no idea

WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius stepped down last week after overseeing the law´s

You can tell it´s an election year because so many noncrises are suddenly urgent priorities. Real median household income is still lower than it was in 2007, the smallest share of Americans is working since 1978, and the Russians are marching west, but Democrats are training fire on race, gender and the grievances of identity politics. "We have this congenital disease, which is in midterm elections we don´t vote at the same rates," President Obama said at a Houston fundraiser the other day. He means that the Obama Democrats are now what they call the "coalition of the ascendent," made

CBO Dire Debt Warnings Show
Nation´s Democrat Future

Big Government: The Congressional Budget Office warns of a terrifying, unprecedented level of national debt in the coming decade. That fits nicely with Democrats´ objectives, but not with our nation´s founding principles. Andrew Jackson, who in 1835 succeeded in paying off the national debt, was famous for considering debt slavery. The current fiscal path the U.S. is on does indeed lead to slavery, but the slave masters of the future will be well-heeled politicians and federal bureaucrats, not plantation owners. The CBO´s new budget projections contain an eerie warning that we are on path from today´s already unfathomable $17.7 trillion in gross

Failure: ObamaCare fans are cheering the latest Congressional Budget Office report, which appears to show that it will cost less and cover more people than expected. But that´s true only if you ignore reality. We don´t always agree with the CBO, but we have long respected it as a credible source of budget numbers. Sure, its projections almost never turn out to be true. But simply too many variables are at play for anyone to guess such things perfectly, and it provides a more or less independent source of information on highly charged, partisan issues. Plus, its findings have a tendency to upset

Taxes: In his first campaign, President Obama pledged to cut taxes for all but the very rich. Now that another tax day has come and gone, it should be very clear that his pledge was just another in a long line of falsehoods. ´I can make a firm pledge," then-candidate Barack Obama said while campaigning back in 2008. "Under my plan no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes." Now, almost six years after those comments, it´s

Corruption: The standoff in the Nevada desert wasn´t about a desert tortoise or a rancher´s failure to pay grazing fees. It was about the state´s senior senator again enriching himself and his family at public expense. Sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant, and the end, at least temporarily, to the Bureau of Land Management´s armed standoff with Cliven Bundy may be due in part to the exposure given to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid´s role in the attempt to confiscate Bundy´s cattle and shut down his ranch. "A tortoise isn´t the reason why BLM is harassing a 67-year-old rancher; they

WASHINGTON -- Latinos and immigration activists are warning of political peril for President Barack Obama and Democrats in the fall election unless the president acts boldly and soon to curb deportations and allow more immigrants to remain legally in the U.S. Many activists say Obama has been slow to grasp the emotions building within the Latino community as deportations near the 2 million mark for his administration and hopes for immigration legislation fade. With House Republicans unlikely to act on an overhaul, executive action by Obama is increasingly the activists´ only hope. "There is tremendous anger among core constituencies of the president

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
