Case Closed: Barack Obama is a Socialist Working to Destroy America

2010 December 5

Put down whatever you're reading, go out and buy this book, and start it today.

“I don’t know how much I buy this whole ‘ex-leftist’ thing,” one of my old professors wrote to me earlier this year as he was trying to wrap his head around how one of his “progressive” poetry students could somehow devolve into an aggressive, unapologetic, Evil Neo-Con Warmonger working for the demonic David Horowitz.

“From what I remember you always struck me as a pretty moderate dude in your columns,” he said.

Why of course I did. Looking  “moderate” and “reasonable” and “liberal” was the objective when in reality in my heart I was a radical and a socialist.  read more…

Hot Post: Fire The Judge: The Braindead Left Picked Its Perfect Fox Scalp

2010 December 4

This popular post was first published on November 28 here.

The Left has been craving its Fox scalp for a long time now. The victories of the Beck/Breitbart axis of the fighting wing of the Conservative Movement have just been too painful to bear.

And now they’ve finally found it in the best possible place.

Yes, absolutely, Fox should fire Judge Andrew Napolitano for his 9/11 Trutherism. They should have fired him a very long time ago.

What do Leftists Think “The Rich” Spend Their Money On? Caviar and Hookers?

2010 December 2

Yeah, we'll just go with the picture of caviar. If you want an image of a hooker then, well, you're on the internet now and shouldn't have too much of a hard time finding THAT.

I get this sentiment pretty regularly when dialoguing with my friends: “The Rich” don’t need the hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars they earn every year. So the government should tax them more and give it to people who do need it.

One of my dearest friends — who I wouldn’t characterize as a leftist per se, just a big-hearted idealist — commented yesterday in response to a dialogue inspired by one of my tweets:

“So taking a little more from people who really arn’t gonna miss it so people (like myself) who are really gonna miss it is wrong?”

Yes, it is wrong. Why? Because it doesn’t actually work to improve people’s quality of life. If you take money away from “the rich” are you just reducing the amount that “fat cats” can spend on caviar and prostitutes? read more…

Do Not Blog About Something If You Haven’t Adequately Studied It. Why is This a Hard Concept?

2010 November 11

Is my friend Bosch Fawstin's description of Ayn Rand accurate? I really have no clue yet.

There are a whole lot of things that you won’t find me blogging about anytime soon. Global warming. The stock market. The war of 1812. Beethoven. Hinduism. Scientology. French cooking. The list can and will go on into infinity.

And there’s a simple reason for this: if I haven’t adequately studied something or at least begun to study something then I don’t pontificate on it in  public. I might have an opinion or lean one way or another but I don’t think I can make definitive statements about something based on wikipedia entries and youtube videos.

Apparently my friend Lisa Graas disagrees with this intellectual approach.

The Final Meltdown? Keith Olbermann Suspended Indefinitely Without Pay

2010 November 5

Via Mediaite, hat tip to The Right Scoop and Kathy Shaidle:

Statement from Phil Griffin, President of MSNBC:

I became aware of Keith’s political contributions late last night. Mindful of NBC News policy and standards, I have suspended him indefinitely without pay.

As always, we encourage you to check out our “Meltdown with Keith Olbermann” Volumes 1 and 2 e-books available here in both PDF and Kindle format. Something tells me there won’t be any more installments in the series.

More soon we’re all sure.

Fair and Balanced? 5 Fire-Breathing Leftist Ideologues on MSNBC Vs 2 Journalists on Fox News

2010 November 2

On MSNBC tonight covering the mid-term elections has been Lawrence O’Donnell, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, and Gene Robinson. In other words: five fire-breathing leftist ideologues. Occasionally they featured guests (including fire-breathing leftist ideologue  Ed Schultz.)

On Fox News tonight covering the mid-term elections has been Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly. In other words: two journalists. Ocassionally they featured guests (including conservatives Sarah Palin and Bill O’Reilly.)

That pretty much sums up everything you need to know about the difference between the two networks — as well as the difference between the Left and the Right.
