Liberalism

Bill Whittle – A Brief History Of Mental Illness

It has long been said that liberalism is a form of mental illness. I would tend to agree. How else can you explain the willful abandonment of logic that seems to inflict most liberals? Everywhere you look, it almost always goes hand in hand with liberals and their twisted way of thinking. It is even attached to people you may not realize. In his latest installment of Firewall, Bill Whittle gives a great example of how he used to be inflicted with mental illness. He explains that period of his life and how he too suffered from the willful abandonment […]

Apartment Manager tells tenant he cannot display the US Flag – IN his own home!

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers and ABC10. A Patriotic American in Santee, California (where else?) has been told that he cannot display his American Flag, INSIDE his own home. A Santee man said he was told he could not display the American flag inside his apartment window, but management will not tell him why. Steve Roberts is a proud to be an American. His father served in the military for more than 25 years. “The American flag, it means to me freedom,” Roberts told 10News. A year ago, Roberts bought an American flag and hung it across his front window, inside his […]

Top 10 Biggest Lies of The Year – Guess How Many Obama Told?

The biggest lie of the year belongs to our faithfully fibbing president. Obama told the biggest lie of the year not once, but 36 times. And make no mistake, this was not an oversight or a case where he just didn’t know. Obama knowingly looked you right in the face and lied, and then he lied about lying about it, but that’s another story. The Washington Post gives Obama kudos for the biggest lie of the year and also presents the Top 10 Biggest Lies. Guess how many of the Top 10 Lies for 2013 were Obama’s? It turns out […]

Faking an Atrocity: Eleven Fake Hate Crimes, And the Liberals That Stage Them

One of the predictable things about liberalism are all the lies-not just those needed to present their ‘ideas,” but all the other lies needed to perpetuate them.  After all, when you entire ideology is based on lies, you have to lie a lot to do keep the train wreck moving forward.  Here is a list of recent hate crimes perpetrated by liberals, against themselves… Perhaps attempting some misguided publicity stunt or perhaps trying to make others see hate where there is none, these people have gone to great lengths to claim they’ve been targeted. Here’s a look back at some […]

No Religious Freedoms for Businesses?

In a recent Op-Ed, Mr. Leonard Pitts, Jr. tried to make the case that violating someone’s 1st Amendment rights is the same as the idea that one’s personal liberty ends where the next person’s begins. Let me also use a quote to make my point.  “Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it.” A direct quote correctly attributed to President Abraham Lincoln in a letter to Henry L. Pierce, April, 1859. In this letter, he was declining an invitation to speak at an event in Boston, honoring […]

Milwaukee County Sheriff Sets the Record Straight

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr sees the Liberal policies that have destroyed the black community for what they are, and he’s not afraid to tell you how he feels. His recently penned Op-Ed in the Washington Times lays it on the line and he pulls no punches. He gets it. He knows that big government begets dependency and dependency begets societal breakdown.   Believe me when I tell you, this is a must-read. CLARKE: Liberal policies have destroyed the black family

What Has Happened To The Once Mighty Peacock?

The executives and powers that be over at 30 Rockefeller Plaza have evidently never heard that old adage, when you find yourself in a hole – STOP DIGGING!! What has happened to the network that brought us such sterling news people as, Hugh Downs, Tom Brokaw, Tim Russert, David Brinkley, Jessica Savitch, John Chancellor and Stone Phillips? The list of NBC’s faux pas keeps growing and growing with each passing day, it seems. Let’s recap, shall we? (and these are just the ones this author remembers) * MSNBC television host Ed Shultz via his radio show – – calls radio […]

This is What Liberalism Does to a City: Abandonded Library in Detroit

Detroit is the perfect exemplification of long term results of liberalism on a geographical area.  Massive corruption, crime, flight of businesses, fight of productive people, decay, death-it’s all there, for the world to see.  Of course, liberals there follow the classic strategy of making it someone else’s fault, but that fall on deaf ears.  As yet another examples of Detroit’s ruins, here is a link to some images of a public library-long abandoned by the citizenry; of which, nearly half cannot read.   

500 Teens Riot in Chicago, Claims of Racial Motivation Made

Chicago is liberal central-you have Rahmbo as mayor,  class warfare reigns, and they have some of the strictest gun laws in the country.  In light of that, I guess what Doug Ross is posting shouldn’t come as a big surprise…  After all 500 teens riot in Chicago. CBS Channel 2 calls the rioters “mischievous”. The warmest day of the year so far brings hundreds of mischievous teens to Michigan Avenue… [But] Police are calling it ‘mob action’. CBS 2 is learning about multiple incidents in at least four different locations along the Magnificent Mile and in the Gold Coast, yielding […]

Pardon Me, Mr. President; Your (Freudian) Slip is Showing…

Much ado has been made (and rightfully so) about Candy Crowley’s performance as moderator in the second of the three Presidential Debates this year. Opinions on the left range from embarrassment to outright praise; while those on the right are pretty much in agreement that she was definitely in the tank for team Obama. In an internal memo obtained by TMZ and reported on Breitbart, Crowley’s Managing Editor thought she did a “superb job.” However, the question practically nobody is asking (although I did find one article about it on the Independent Journal Review) is “Did CNN and the Obama […]

It’s Not Easy Being Green: Green Cars Cause More Pollution!

When it comes to green cars, I feel obligated to invoke Quinn’s First Law… “Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of it’s stated intent.” You can’t argue it.  The “war on poverty” caused more poverty.  Since the onset of the Department of Education, education has gotten worse.  I could go on all day, but you get the point.  Liberals state that they are going to make something better, and instead make it worse.  Then, they blame us for their failure.  Here is the latest; green cars cause more pollution!  The Lonely Conservative has more… The Daily Caller reported that a new study by […]

The Warren Report: Fauxcahontas Walks The Trail Of Jeers

For Elizabeth Warren — Harvard Law School progressive, self-proclaimed Cherokee maid, and Oklahoma house flipper — the path to Chappaquiddick Teddy’s old Senate seat has turned into a Trail of Jeers.  Even her Tribe has disowned her, despite the compelling evidence she has presented in support of her claim of membership: …Warren was listed in the early 1990s as a minority professor at Harvard University, but the only proof Warren has of her claim of 1/32nd Cherokee blood is family stories about high cheek bones … To liberal kemosabes like Bernie Quigley, however, Fauxcahontas isn’t Right, so she can’t be […]

The Battle of Big Ideas: CONSTRAINED vs. UNCONSTRAINED

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 […]

Why We Suck

I really don’t have anything to add to this. As usual, Mr. Whittle is eloquent and to the point, so sit back and enjoy learning why we suck.

Re-Redefining Conservatism

rino_big

Remember when Bush came into office with his “compassionate conservative” slogan?  Remember how that translated?  Compassionate conservatism was Bush’s way of saying, “Hey, I’m for capitalism, but only up to a certain point, then I’m for socialism”.  In politics, this is a “playing the whole field” approach.  It appeases moderates who want to hear milquetoast language, liberals who want the social net, and conservatives who aren’t paying attention (hey, conservatism is in the name, it must be good). Now Romney, who plays center field with the range of Willie Mays, ran into a criticism after he said that he “didn’t care […]

Mental Disorder Reaches Epidemic Status

Recent research suggests that a common mental disorder in Washington DC is spreading through the US at a staggering rate, leaving the populace mentally feeble and unable to comprehend reality.   The name of the disorder is Do Something-itis, or Do Anything-itis.  The disorder is said to impact the brain in such a way that the patient believes that government intervention can solve problems.   This from Dr. Hiram Lockjaw, senior scientist at the CDC: These problems used to be contained in the centers of power, academia, media, and law.  Most civilians affected resided in “blue” states.  We use electoral maps to track the progress […]

Public School Fail: When all Else Fails, Cheat!

school-fail

One of the criticisms of standardized testing is that schools will “teach to the test.”  In other words, they teach the anticipated content of the test, leading to a narrow and dumbed down curriculum.    In Atlanta, they obviously misunderstood that axiom, and decided to “cheat to the test.” A year-long investigation first orchestrated by former Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue (R) and now released by current Gov. Nathan Deal (R) has unearthed cheating and unethical behavior across every level of the 55,000-student Atlanta Public School System. The Atlanta Journal Constitutionreports: “Teachers and principals erased and corrected mistakes on students’ answer sheets. […]

Classic Conservative Hideout: Individual Rights Vs. The Collective

When we speak about the rights of the individual, we are saying something very different than the left’s view of the topic.  Our founders carefully crafted a Constitution that is designed to protect us from the excesses of government.  However, a sufficient percentage of the people have not guarded those rights against government intrusion, until just recently.  Those excesses are readily apparent in our country today:  federal control of education, health care, environmental law, interference with personal property rights, and a litany of others, all in violation of the spirit of the Constitution and it’s writers, interfere with the everyday […]

Who Indoctrinates the Indoctrinators? Teachers Required to Think Socialist to Get Degrees

In light of the renewed focus on public education, courtesy of the current public union mess, I thought it might be a good idea to take another look at how teachers are trained.  Here is a post from December of 2009. The People’s Republic of China generally makes no distinction between education and propaganda or indoctrination. All three share the common task of changing man. The agencies of education, indoctrination, and propaganda are legion—newspapers, posters, and propaganda leaflets, neighbourhood gatherings for the study of current events, as well as political rallies, parades, and many forms of “mass campaigns” under careful direction. It […]
