SELWYN DUKE: THE RACE IDIOTS

Not only does this selective moral blindness numb us to our real national sins, it also allows the reprobate the illusion of righteousness.  In fact, while the stereotype of the self-righteous oaf is of a rightist religious zealot, a far more fitting candidate is the loopy leftist lunkhead.  He is the one who will parade about defining favored vices as virtue, worshipping sex and mammon, secure in his own saintliness because he utters nary a racial joke and bears nobly that newly-minted white man’s burden.  The modern leftist is like a Nazi who thinks he is good because he is hygienic and punctual.

BRUCE WALKER: THE WAGES OF APPEASEMENT

The world has known for many years that the wages of appeasement are the loss of moral high ground to monstrous villains.  During the Cold War, although America usually kept its military power adequate to deter Soviet aggression, the American Left (and European Left) blithely pretended that a regime which conspired with Adolph Hitler to start the Second World War, which instructed the Nazis about how to create massive camps in which millions of souls could perish – as millions had before the Nazis even came to power in Germany – and which preached as doctrine that any lie, any crime, any vice which advanced the cause of communism was morally on the same plane as America and the West.

DENNIS PATRICK: HEALTH CARE CO-OPS—TRUTH AND FICTION

Senator Kent Conrad touts the example of Group Health Cooperative of Puget Sound (GHCPS) as an example of a health care co-op. Unfortunately, that is not a good example to use. GHCPS policy holders do not have ownership rights. They may apply for membership, but policy holders neither own the “cooperative” nor do they have full membership rights.

Ultimately, every civil program the feds attempt to manage eventually is driven into the ground and out of budget with inevitable cost overruns. Why entrust the government with yet another costly boondoggle to botch?

BRUCE WALKER: EVERY STATE IS A CONSERVATIVE STATE

Now Gallup has come up with three polls in three months which deal explicitly with the ideology of Americans which confirms everything I have been writing about the strong conservative character of our country.  The Red State / Blue State map reflects a partisan divide in America, but not an ideological divide at all.  If Red State means “conservative” and Blue State means “liberal,” then guess what?  The entire map of the United States, except for a peculiar tiny rectangle carved out of southern Maryland, is Red State.  The Biggest Missing Story in Politics is still The Biggest Missing Story in Politics.  What is it that Republicans don’t get?

HERB MITTELSTEDT: CZAR; FROM WHERE, ON WHAT BASIS?

Did our founding fathers use the word in our Constitution?  Nope, couldn’t find any mention of it. They were focused on a republic.  So what is going on, now that our emperor, oops president, has appointed about 36 czars?  He obviously envisions himself as a person having great or unlimited power over others; an autocrat.  Where is the constitutional basis?  Is our astute congress sleeping? Do they know the constitutional basis?  Would they be willing to share it with the rest of us?  Has anyone asked the Supreme Court?

MARK STEYN: YOU’VE HAD SOME GOOD INNINGS

The problem with government health systems is not that they pull the plug on Grandma. It’s that Grandma has a hell of a time getting plugged in in the first place. The only way to “control costs” is to restrict access to treatment, and the easiest people to deny treatment to are the oldsters. Don’t worry, it’s all very scientific.

ALLISON GROTBERG: HOSPITAL BILL VALID REASON FOR GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER OF HEALTH CARE?

Senators Dorgan, Conrad and Congressman Pomeroy, there are a myriad of solutions to some of the most painful problems associated with our current health care system. Don’t turn control of our personal lives over to to government and shut down the private health care system. Look for freedom-friendly free market solutions. And fellow citizens, let’s be responsible. Let’s get creative, and let’s stop looking for parental care and crisis-relief from the government alone.

JAMES PLAIR: THE CONSTITUTION - THE REAL ISSUE

Compassion is NOT the government’s business. Compassion is the business of the Society of People. Before the advent of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and all of the other government social experiments it was the churches, local charities, the Salvation Army, and other organizations that were aware of the needs of those less fortunate. This was true compassion, not the government programs designed to “fit the needs of all”, but to make our society dependent on government.

"Maybe, just maybe, health care and cap and trade legislation have nothing to do with either health or saving the environment. Maybe these and other efforts have more to do with consolidating political power in the hand of a few Washington politicians to the detriment of our freedom.

SALLY MORRIS: SOCIAL ENGINEERING IN THE AGE OF OBAMA:  CASH FOR CLUNKERS

Let’s step back just a moment and get it in perspective.  “Cash for Clunkers” was packaged as a great, innovative “stimulus” to the auto industry.  The second reason cited was that it was a sound environmental program to get old clunkers off the streets for good, replaced by new, green cars.  Win-win?

Well, except for some other, far more serious issues.  To see what they are and what they do and why we need to look at who is being hurt by this.  The poorer Americans will suffer from this program more than anyone else.  The nasty truth is that “Cash for Clunkers” is not about stimulating the economy nor about the environment.  It is nothing more nor less than a program of social engineering.

ALL THE PRESIDENT’S BIGOTED MEN
Of course, because I wrote this essay, many people will hurl that r-word at me. But who really is prejudiced? Who really has drawn conclusions that have no basis in reality? If I’m wrong in what I’ve said, then, sure, perhaps it is me. If I’m wrong, then you may have reason to suspect I’m hung-up. But if I’m right, then I have just explained for you the Gateses, Lowerys and Wrights of the world — and the Obamas. If I’m right, it means we have put someone who is hung-up — and perhaps hateful — in the White House.

AARP: FIGHTING FACTS WITH MYTH!

AARP makes the claim of addressing “Myths” with “Facts”. There isn’t a single reference in AARP’s “Myths vs. Facts” to any section of the ONLY health care bill (HB 3200) being considered by Congress.  How is it possible to contend the assertions made by AARP are myths or facts?  AARP cites nothing to corroborate any assertion they make! They ignore the ONLY legislation that exists!

SELWYN DUKE: EMPTY CRADLES, DEMOGRAPHIC DESTINY, AND THE DEATH OF THE WEST

While the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding was good cinema, it was also a big fat Hollywood fiction.  With Greece’s fertility rate of 1.36 children per woman — well below the replacement level of 2.1 — “big” is not a modifier demographers would associate with today’s Greek families.  In fact, a more accurate film might be called My Big Fat Muslim Wedding.

JACK ZALESKI: FARGO FORUM’S CHIEF PROPOGANDIST?

The Fargo Forum editorial writer Jack Zaleski comes out this morning (August 12, 2009) as a possible shill for Obama’s Care (ObamaScare). He must have gotten the talking points from Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, Harry Reid and Barack Hussein Obama concerning the new strategy to continue shoving “health care reform” down the throats of Americans. The emerging new strategy appears to be not to talk about what is actually in H.R. 3200, but to pick one single aspect of the health care debate and attack the validity of all of those opposing this gigantic grab for your liberty, then claim that the opposition comes from some disreputable faction, next claim that not only are those in opposition stupid, mistaken, and liars, and ignore the duplicity of the promoters of this “change”, last, ignore the massive duplicity of the proponants. This is typical Jack Zaleski work. Here is how the technique is executed in The Forum today:

MARK STEYN: COMMUNITY ORGANIZING AGAINST THE COMMUNITY ORGANIZER?

Unsure about that old hippie artist across the street? The one who said, “Yeah, I voted for Obama ‘cause I thought it’d be cool to have an African-American president. But, since the economic downturn, the bottom’s really dropped out of my hemp tapestry market.” He seems to be starting to entertain impure thoughts about the Dear Leader’s plans for us, doesn’t he? And yet, with the best will in the world, one couldn’t really describe him as a snappy dresser, could one? It’s a tough call. So best be on the safe side, and report everyone.

BRUCE WALKER: NOT BLUE DOG BUT BROWN NOSE DEMOCRATS

What we have descended into is a whole political party which stands, really, for nothing.  It seeks power to have power.  It is a political party, nominally for the “working poor,” whose real backers are billionaires and Hollywood multi-millionaires.  Once principled politicians, who chose to call themselves Democrats, tried to protect the folks back home, because they perceived a moral duty to their constituents. 

Now these Brown Nose Democrats, seeing the vast powers Obama has collected, the monolithic power of the Leftist media and academia, and the lure of becoming nabob in the new regime, seek only to stay in power, growing rich (in that inexplicable way that congressmen always seem to do), and have a real home not in some city of Flyover Country, but rather in the Imperial City, Washington.  Blue Dog Democrats are a dying breed.  Brown Nose Democrats are the wave of the future.

PERPETRATING HEALTH CARE FRAUD: DEMOCRATS AND OBAMASCARE

Listening to Obama and the Democrats talk about portability, coverage for all, saving money, ….etc., you have to wonder how anyone could oppose such benevolence. But the devil is in the details and Hell is the reality. This health care fraud is about far more than the left is letting on. Watching the goings on in the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee as the H.R. 3200 is refined and constructed tells the real story.Also, here is the most undeniable evidence that the Democrats will use taxpayer money to kill the unborn. Their intent can not be any more clear. This is how you can find out what ObamaScare is really all about.
