I Agree 100% - Time To Invoke Reagan's 11th Commandment

Feb 23, 2013 10:34 PM PT

In response to Conservative infighting and the Eleventh Commandment:

There is a difference between informed, careful criticism and "speaking ill" of someone - for example, by calling them "crazy, stupid, and dangerous."  Particularly when the ill speaking serves to shore up a major liberal narrative, in this case the destruction of one of conservatism's greatest champions, and the elevation of the absurd Fluke to something like secular sainthood.

I'm not a Michelle Obama fan, but the woman can dance

Feb 23, 2013 9:49 PM PT

I don't care for her views, and I think she's the archetypal liberal hypocrite (explain those vacations to Spain and Aspen, as well as the healthy appetite for junk food the rest of us aren't supposed to eat). But she's always been the more appealing half of the Obama duo, and the woman can dance. She's also got real stage presence, as she shows on this clip with Jimmy Fallon, which has long since gone viral.

I do wish our governing elite did care about providing more than cheap entertainment, and that our media demanded more, but as long as we're living in a leaderless era of zero accountability, where you can spend your second term campaigning against the people you blame for all the things you did wrong in your first, we may as well enjoy little moments like these. Maybe she should quit her day job?

It's Serfdom, Not Slavery

Feb 23, 2013 7:08 PM PT

It kills me when I hear the black communtiy refered to as a plantation.  It gives liberals an excuse to reject your argument as 'far right' and the black community to feel insulted, fairly or not.

My main problem with calling the black community a plantation is it implies they work.  The purpose of today's "masta" is to create dependency.  They don't want producers.  It's a false analogy.

S.S.S.A. Indoctrination

Feb 23, 2013 6:50 PM PT

I can sum up American history, at least the version I was taught, in four words: slavery, socialism, segregation, and assasination.

Slavery: You are black and you were a slave.  The white man beat, raped, and tore apart the very fabric of black families.  You were considered 3/5ths of a man.

Didactic entertainment

Feb 23, 2013 1:27 PM PT

In response to Jonah Goldberg: Conservatives Don't Need a Movie Studio:

That's a point well-made about the hopes of conservatives to influence culture, John.  You don't do it by creating a conservative movie studio and putting out the right-wing equivalent of the Left's mega-bombs from the Bush years.  I don't know if the concept of a conservative-owned studio is inherently bad, provided it avoided that kind of ham-fisted misstep... but it would be a difficult mistake to avoid.

The silver lining of sequestration hysteria

Feb 23, 2013 1:10 PM PT

George Will becomes the latest level-headed observer to sneer in utter disgust at Obama's sequestration hysteria:

The sequester has forced liberals to clarify their conviction that whatever the government’s size is at any moment, it is the bare minimum necessary to forestall intolerable suffering. At his unintentionally hilarious hysteria session Tuesday, Obama said: The sequester’s “meat-cleaver approach” of “severe,” “arbitrary” and “brutal” cuts will “eviscerate” education, energy and medical research spending. “And already, the threat of these cuts has forced the Navy to delay an aircraft carrier that was supposed to deploy to the Persian Gulf.”
