Andrew Klavan makes a great point in his LA Times column. Hey liberals…before bashing Rush Limbaugh and comparing him to most hateful voices of our time…why don’t you LISTEN TO HIM.
Hey, I rarely believe in anything that Keith Olberman says, but I still watch Countdown every now and then. It is quite an entertaining show and the same goes for Bill Maher. It is important that liberals start hearing divergent voices, because it will challenge their beliefs and prevent them from just being Obamadrones.
It’s interesting how during the Iraq war, liberals tried to make heroes out of stooges such as Michael Moore and Cindy Sheehan, but now when Rush Limbaugh opposes THEIR president’s policies, then he must be destroyed. What is the difference with these two forms of dissent? And don’t forget about a movie that was made looking at the fallout of a potential President Bush assassination. I know…liberals…when Rush said “I hope he fails” about President Obama that was much worse than a docudrama about the assassination of a sitting president.
The Democratic Party now feels that they have to sabotage the Republicans and demonize the opposition to get their agenda passed. They should learn from George W. Bush, who ran the country the best way he saw fit, without going after his harshest critics. It is so sad that President Obama wants to play politics when the country is going through two wars and a terrible economy. He should learn from Ronald Reagan and JFK, who brought civility and class to oval office. The country badly wants to return to the Washington of those eras and President Obama should follow suit.
Al Gore never ceases to amaze me. First, he is caught having more electricity running in his house than Yankee Stadium. Now, during Earth Hour, when everyone was supposed to live in darkness starting 8:30 PM Saturday as a sign of “limitin” our carbon footprint and saving the planet from global warming….what does Al Gore do? Well…of course he had bright spotlights shine on the trees at the entrance to his driveway.
So Mr. Gore’s lesson is this…conserve energy at all times unless it is shining on mother nature itself. Nice lesson. Let’s look at what I did during “Earth Hour,” shall we. I was watching American Gangster on HBO…with half of the lights on in the tiny living room of my tiny Gramercy Apartment.
Carbon Footprint: KP defeats Gore by a mile.
And I wasn’t trying to save the environment. Just living my life. What a concept. Now can Al Gore and rest of the far left blowhards stop their hypocritical grandstanding. The earth doesn’t need any more of their hot air.

The U.S. budget deficit over the next ten years will be larger than the combined economies of India, Russia, Brazil, Spain, and Canada.

President Obama likes to tell us that only the rich will see higher taxes. And only the energy companies will face higher fees through the cap-and-trade scheme.
Being a liberal means never having to say you know a darn thing about economics. In a dynamic economy, tax hikes are never confined to just one group or sector. The costs are passed on, and the lower savings rates and the lower spending that result hurts everyone.
The National Center for Policy Analysis explains it clearly here.
Book recommendation, written by my favorite talk radio host, Mark Levin:
The spending thus far in the Obama administration has been nothing short of fantastic in size – a $787 billion worth of “stimulus” and a $410 omnibus spending bill, $1.1 trillion of “toxic asset” purchases by the Federal Reserve, and more. On the heels of a Bush administration that had already spent $700 billion of its own on “stimulus” and a host of other programs related to financial “recovery,” total outlays of government spending related to the recession hovers around $9 trillion.
Next up is the president’s budget. At $3.55 trillion it is a whopper! Up $650 from 2008 and remarkable in that it represents a return of Carter era-like big government. More than a few have noted that it puts the United States under a modern European government. For champions of limited government it is a danger for this reason alone, but there lies a more urgent reason as well.
We Republicans MUST be as vocal as possible about the danger this budget poses to future prosperity and the United States’ prominence in the world. The spending is too much already – there is a reason why the dollar is in doubt. It puts an impossible burden on American taxpayers in the future. The other way the government can pay backs debt is to print money. This is called monetizing debt and it’s begun already. Put another way, we are risking the full faith and credit of the United States, the solvency of our government. Crises of that scope don’t end well!
Richard Epstein’s paper THE EMPLOYEE FREE CHOICE ACT: Free Choice or No Choice for Workers is available from the Manhattan Institute. It’s a great resource for understanding exactly why the Employee Free Choice Act will irrevocably harm American workers and the economy.
From the executive summary:
“As constructed, the ‘free choice’ act excludes workers from two areas vital to their welfare: union selection and contract ratification. Its compulsory arbitration structure introduces a partial but large-scale, covert government takeover of the private sector. As America faces imploded financial markets and the highest structural unemployment in a generation, the EFCA is a misguided law that it cannot afford.”
The Hill reports that liberals in Congress want to see more cuts in defense spending, but not to save taxpayer money. Instead they want to allocate the cash for more social welfare spending.
They claim that the cuts would target weapons programs that either don’t work or have already cost too much money to develop. What they won’t tell you is that the overly long budgeting and development periods for these systems is due in large part to their intransigence to defense spending in the first place. Their stalling tactics on the development of the joint strike fighter, next generation nuclear weapons, and other items for our 21st Century military is what causes the cost of these systems to rise.
And let’s not forget the fact that we are at war and cutting defense spending during wartime makes about as much sense as raising taxes during an economic recession. Oh, wait, liberals support that, too. Never mind…
The fare hikes that the MTA approved this past week are the biggest sign we’ll ever get that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority is an overwrought, overrated, lousy, wasteful excuse of an agency. When steep price hikes are matched with deep service cuts, you know an agency is in trouble, likely beyond repair.
