Small Business Owners Explain Why ObamaCare Causes Cuts in Hours and Layoffs

As the layoffs continue to mount, and the left continues to blame everyone/everything but Obama’s policies, business people continue to attempt to explain the situation.  FOX News has the video.  Why FOX News?  Because the other networks won’t cover it! Of course, leftists will probably promise to boycott these businesses, and try to put them under.  Because, as we all know, putting all of the workers in the unemployment line is far better than some of them losing their jobs.  As far as I can ascertain, it must be a twist on the normal liberal fairness meme.  You see, if some losing their jobs, and others […]

You Didn’t Build That: Debunking the Leftist Narrative

If we listen to the leftists, we hear two repeated messages… Corporations are not people No one get’s rich on their own, or, you didn’t build that. Of course, these are parts of the class warfare lexicon.   For example, corporations are not people because their campaign donations help balance the torrent of big labor money to the democratic coffers.  So, it necessary to redefine them as “not people.”   Oh, and by the way, labor unions ARE people.  Don’t ask how- it cannot be explained.  Perhaps some strange metaphysical process is involved, or it is simply an asinine narrative?  You can […]

The Childish Left

Are there any adults in the Democrat Party? Or, do they behave like children because that is how they see the majority of American voters? Cindy Simpson’s article at American Thinker today implies that the latter is the case. She is focused on Obama’s use of the “Fairness Card”. In  the game of Obama politics, the Race Card and the Bush Card are frequently  played to trump most any criticism of Obama or his policies.  While those  cards tend to be the most oft-used defensive tactics, the most  effective offensive card in the Obama campaign’s hand is the Fairness  Card.  Take this recent example, when Obama said: […]

More Evidence that OWS is a Microcosm of Their Future Socialist State

Redistribution is one of the key foundational concepts of socialism.  People having differing talents & work habits is inherently unfair, so government has to steal from others, and give to others.  Naturally, we have history to teach us that this thinking eventually fails, but reality is an elusive concept to our left, so additional examination is needed. The latest example comes from OWS, who have been taking over forclosed homes, and kinda-sorta giving them to others.  Let’s see how that has worked out for them.  Hot Air has the details… The proposal originally attracted the support of Wise Ahadzi, owner […]

Obama Thinks "Unneeded" Income Belongs to Government?

Commentary Magazine has a great article by John Steele Gordon.  I think it is quite revealing. President Obama’s press conference yesterday—in which he only took questions from left-leaning reporters apparently–contained an amazing statement. It should be noted the first two instances of the first person singular pronoun in the sentence refer to Barack Obama, President of the United States. The second two refer to Barack Obama, taxpaying citizen: And I do not want, and I will not accept, a deal in which I am asked to do nothing, in fact, I’m able to keep hundreds of thousands of dollars in additional income that I don’t […]

Tolerating Socialists if There Were Any For Real?

chalkboard2-23-09

In my class, I tolerate almost every sort of student- conservatives, liberals, libertarians, socialists, and even moderates. In our discussions, debates, and in simulations, it doesn’t matter to me how a student thinks the best way to improve life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness- it isn’t my place to make them conform with my views or my ideology. But even though I’m tolerate of those groups, I do not tolerate fascists, hypocrites, or those students who openly promote tyranny and seek power over others. Public education receives a lot of money from the state, and that money comes with […]
