WARNING! Don't don't read it with your mouth full of coffee or any other beverage. With your health care insurance going up, you don't want to have to buy a new monitor or keyboard.

Read it and first thought to cross my mind?  What is it about democrats that causes them to believe they can get someone who has 2 nickles to rub together will happily give up one to someone without the slightest inclination to bend over and pick one up for themselves?
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

That is what passes for thinking in their circles!

Very good piece.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

A great read, but my ADD wouldn't see me get to the end.   

Too long.    :laugh:

Jonah Goldberg is the smartest political commentator there is. Heck of a good writer, too.

Yeah, you think this failure is rich? Just wait until we see this clearly the failure of "quantitative easing".  This failure can be cured by repealing Obamacare and replacing the politicians that gave it to us.  Relatively simple as such things go...

Nothing in Heaven or on Earth will cure the effects of quantitative easing when they become apparent, short of societal collapse and reconstruction from the veritable pit of Hell.

Such is the payment for our society's dalliance with the hard left...which believes it has the power to change all the laws of the universe to whatever it thinks they should be.

Too true and in the meantime we have people cheering the continued rise of the stock market which is being fueled by QE which is being fueled by continued high unemployment.

I haven't revisited those old SNL skits in a long time. Either they were funnier back then or I was just goofy enough myself to enjoy it. Probably the latter.

Well said Scottfic! Well said indeed and absolutely true!

We are only just beginning to see the effects of this dalliance with idiocy!
