Health care is not a right
Health care is not a right. The topic came up again last night on Hannity. Hannity had a very interesting Great American Panel last night. Bob Beckel, Redstate’s own Erick Erickson, and singer/Playboy model Aubrey O’Day were the guests. After discussing a program that U.S. tax dollars are funding in Africa that provides sex education to 5-year olds, the talked turned to health care. O’Day | Read More »
Deval Patrick Takes Welfare Back to the 1970s
Democrats often tell us that one critical difference between the two parties is that the Democrats are more giving and compassionate. I’m not sure if that’s true in general, but it’s true in at least one important respect: Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick is giving Republicans a huge political issue. The State of Massachusetts faces a severe budget shortfall, and Governor Patrick is using nearly $1 | Read More »
Light Houses and a Lobster Museum
Greetings From The Welfare State. Fox News is the Greatest, I don’t have the time to read over 1,000 pages of a BiLL. So I have to rely on them to point out what my Whacked out Senators think the American people should pay for. Light House Reconstruction, A Lobster Museum. Lets take the Light Houses First. Light Houses in Maine are our State Treasures. | Read More »
The Nouveau Welfare Class
So I was at the grocery store last Friday, the 13th of March 2009, buying my weekly groceries. Shopping went normally. Grapes where running $1.49 a pound, so I picked up a small bag to add to my bananas for fruit for the week. Near the checkout, the 12 or less line was empty, but I passed by it to go to the normal amount | Read More »
Does Barack Obama Want Black Children to be Poorer?
In 1996 Congress passed and Bill Clinton signed the welfare reforms that for the first time in 20 years caused poverty statistics for black children to fall to unprecedented lows during the modern welfare era. In 1996, Barack Obama was against these reforms. In 2009, with his giant welfare bill he calls a “stimulus plan,” Barack Obama has eliminated these reforms. Watch this video to | Read More »
Welfare Queens Make a Comeback
Following up on Moe’s point that Mickey Kaus notices Obama’s Porkulus eradicates the 1996 reform of welfare, the London Telegraph puts in perspective what has happened. The dangers are beginning to pile up for the novice president and his struggling economic crew. Tim Geithner, his treasury secretary, tripped up with opaque attempts to explain how the administration would fix the banking crisis, while from every | Read More »
Capitalism is the Catalyst for Charity . . .
Americans work hard for their wealth, probably harder than any other country in the world. We do all sorts of different things with the wealth that we work for each year. We pay for our food and nourishments, taxes, pets, car and transportation needs, gas and energy bills, and a variety of other resources and materials that we get and benefit from in exchange for | Read More »
Evita Peron Obama: Best comparison yet to the One
You will have to go here to The American Thinker for the full article, but here’s just a preview. Remarkably, many of the lyrics of “Evita” apply equally well to Barak Obama, beginning with the Messianic adoration neither discouraged: “I’m their savior, that’s what they call me,” sang Evita. Or as the children’s choir sang to her (just like they do for Obama): Please, gentle | Read More »
My politics I recently joined a social networking group centered around an activity that tends to attract a lot of liberals. Someone started a discussion thread on politics, and more than one lefty jumped in with the usual talking points. I haven’t so far seen anything from a conservative. Here’s the entry I’m thinking about submitting.
Liberalism is Born of Laziness
Too many people want their hand-out. Too few ever take the first step to independence and success. Is it because they can’t, or because they don’t ever care to try? Go to most parks in the U.S., and you will invariably find a sign exhorting you to refrain from feeding the animals. This is because if enough fools feed these wild creatures, they will become | Read More »
Race card – This is really crazy…
So on the heels of Lewis’s comments this has to be the most ubsurd claim of racisim in this campaign yet… Obama’s advisors are claiming that McCain’s comparison of Obama’s tax plan to welfare carries a subliminal racial message. This is really outrageous. Obama’s tax plan calls for “tax credits” in the form of checks from the government to people who don’t even pay federal | Read More »
It’s simple really. When Republicans were successful during the 90’s in getting real welfare reform passed the Dems had to find a new vehicle to keep their wealth redistribution engine churning. They found the perfect piggy bank in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Couching the scheme in lofty sounding rhetoric about the American Dream, blah, blah, blah. I do not think for one minute that | Read More »
