OBAMA IS (WAS) A SOCIALIST

Obama supporters like to dismiss anyone who suggests that President Obama is a socialist as a kook or a racist or both.

I don’t know where other people got their impression that the guy has serious socialist tendencies but I came to that realization by reading about his past.

If the media had spent 1/10th the time on Obama’s past that they spent trying to investigate Sarah Palin’s church, the guy wouldn’t have come close to getting the nomination.

People who dismiss the notion that he is a radical leftist like to base that opinion on what he has said since he became a presidential candidate.

He would have never been taken seriously as a national candidate if he had shown his true colors.

Stanley Kurtz did extensive research on Obama’s past and couldn’t get anyone in the mainstream media to pay attention to him four years ago.

Kurtz has proof that Obama belonged to socialist organizations that he and his campaign claimed he did not.

Obama’s supporters will dismiss this as ancient history and say it’s no longer relevant, but it’s so much more than that.

It’s proof that the guy harbors dangerous anti-capitalist if not anti-American feelings and it’s a great argument for not letting him fool the American people again and preventing him from getting a second term.

THEFT IS THEFT EVEN WHEN THE GOVERNMENT IS THE THIEF

Of all the people writing about politics in America, no one makes more sense (to me)  more often than Walter Williams.

Over the next five months, we’re going to be hearing and having discussions about what’s “fair” and what’s not “fair” when it comes to how much you and I should be taxed.

How much would money would be a “fair” amount of money for the government to take from you or me to give to someone else?

Lots of smart people will make convincing arguments for both sides.

And they’ll all be wrong.

Because it’s never “fair” to forcibly take money from one person and give it to another.

“…does an act that’s clearly immoral and illegal when done privately become moral when it is done legally and collectively? Put another way, does legality establish morality? Before you answer, keep in mind that slavery was legal; apartheid was legal; the Nazi’s Nuremberg Laws were legal; and the Stalinist and Maoist purges were legal. Legality alone cannot be the guide for moral people. The moral question is whether it’s right to take what belongs to one person to give to another to whom it does not belong.

Don’t get me wrong. I personally believe that assisting one’s fellow man in need by reaching into one’s own pockets is praiseworthy and laudable. Doing the same by reaching into another’s pockets is despicable, dishonest and worthy of condemnation. Some people call governmental handouts charity, but charity and legalized theft are entirely two different things. But as far as charity is concerned, James Madison, the acknowledged father of our Constitution, said, “Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.”

Understanding and adhering to  the sentiments of those two paragraphs would eliminate about 90% of our country’s problems.

 

FOX NETWORK’S BASEBALL RATINGS STINK

The NHL’s not the only non-football league that is struggling to get big national TV ratings.

The ratings for Fox’s “Baseball Night in America” are in the toilet.

Of course, the low ratings are not a good measure of baseball’s popularity because the Fox game was competing with local telecasts all over the country.

Unlike NBC’s “Football Night in America”, or ESPN’s Monday Night Football, which have all the football fans to themselves.

There was a time when the NBC Saturday Game of the Week was a pretty big deal. That was before teams televised so many games on local TV. And before the Pirates televised any home games.

If the Pirates were playing at home on a Saturday, you had two choices if you wanted to see a Major League Baseball game.

You could buy a ticket to the Pirates game or watch Curt Gowdy and Tony Kubek on NBC.

And the NBC Game of the Week was your only chance to see an American League team.

Now, national network hockey and baseball games aren’t much more than wallpaper for the sports bars.

 

 

 

 

$6 MILLION TO TEACH KIDS HOW TO WALK TO SCHOOL?

While the government in New York City is protecting its fine citizens from the evil 16 0z Pepsi, in Wisconsin, their government is spending $900,000 to teach kids how to walk home from school.

And there are still people wondering why we’re trillions of dollars in debt?

When did, “Look both ways before you cross the street” stop being enough?

What’s next? Government funded programs to teach kids how to wipe their asses?

And, by the way, shouldn’t these kids who are walking home be wearing helmets?

GREEN LANTERN IS GAY

I was severely deprived as a child.

I read lots of comic books. Mostly Superman, Batman and other superheroes and every once in a while Archie.

I don’t recall ever wondering what they did in their bedrooms.

Imagine how much more enlightened and enriched I would be if Superman had been in love with Lewis Lane instead of Lois.

Green Lantern is gay.

Not only is he a homosexual, but he’s an effeminate one, who says things like, “Why not, it would be magical.”

Help me out here.

Do kids who are young enough to be reading comic books really need to deal with the sexuality of the make believe people they’re reading about?

Or are there actually that many people out there  old enough to understand sexual preference who are still reading comic books?

If so, why?
