What I Learned at the Huffington Post

Every once in a great while I’ll visit a leftwing site like the Huffington Post just to remind myself about the kind of mentality we’re up against.  I am especially curious about the Left’s perceptions of current events, and indeed what they believe current events even to be.  After a few minutes reading it is inevitably such a depressing exercise that I turn away in utter disgust, reassured in my long-held belief that we are doomed as a nation. The article linked to below, entitled “How America Became a Third World Country,” was featured as a front-page blog post on Huffpo the … Continue reading

When Giving Became “Giving BACK”

(This is another essay from my previous blog.  I’m re-posting it here because of my staunch belief that we should not fall prey to the Left’s attempts to redefine our language.  Once we accept the language of the Left, the rest is just a matter of time.  ˜ CW) For the past several years now I’ve been unable to peruse a newspaper or magazine without running into the latest human-interest story about somebody “giving back” to their community or, more likely, some self-proclaimed do-gooder calling on everyone else to “give back.”  Too many people don’t seem to realize that the seemingly innocuous … Continue reading

Good Thing That Sex Offender was Registered!

(This essay is a reprint from an August 24, 2011 post on my previous blog.  With the recent killing of 8-year old Leila Fowler in California, I thought it might be a good time for some serious reflection on our handling of known sex offenders.   – CW) “A [known] sex offender brutally sexually assaulted and murdered his 14-year-old neighbour before going on a day trip to Blackpool Pleasure Beach, a jury heard.” “The convicted rapist and child murderer Peter Tobin drugged and murdered an 18-year-old school-leaver before burying her in his back garden next to the body of another teenager … Continue reading

Government Racketeers

“A racket is a service that is fraudulently offered to solve a problem, such as for a problem that does not actually exist, will not be affected, or would not otherwise exist. Conducting a racket is racketeering.[1] Particularly, the potential problem may be caused by the same party that offers to solve it, although that fact may be concealed, with the specific intent to engender continual patronage for this party.” ˜Wikipedia Sound familiar? Back in the 60’s and 70’s, liberals in the U.S. decided marriage was an unnecessary and outdated tradition (now that gays want to get married marriage has, … Continue reading

The Church of Oppositism

An industrious person with a strong stomach could make a full-time career out of the task of documenting the litany of peculiar positions staked out by the Left.  Ditto for the litany of lies and double standards that result from their unabashed fondness for dishonesty and hypocrisy.   The point of this post is to try and answer one simple question:  Why? The biggest problem liberals face in America is that conservatism makes them irrelevant.   The Founding Fathers already established a strong and durable form of limited government – check!   The American economy thrived and produced enormous prosperity under our system … Continue reading

“Means Testing” and Marxism

“From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs!” ˜Karl Marx In the battle over government spending, we hear a lot about the need to cut “entitlement spending,” which generally means Social Security (SS) and Medicare.  What qualifies these as “entitlements,” I assume, is the obligation that’s incurred when we pass a law (unconstitutional as it may be) that requires people to pay into these programs in exchange for some promise of payment or service in the future.  Thus you are “entitled” to your promised benefit. The fact that both democrats and republicans are talking about “means testing” as … Continue reading

What is the Meaning of Hypocrisy?

Every day, it seems, we catch the President of the United States in yet another glaring hypocrisy.  Having spent his limited and undistinguished career as a U.S. senator grand-standing on the senate floor, arrogantly scolding republicans so as to assume the image of the impatient father scolding the errant child, isn’t it interesting that he now spends his presidency pursuing, if not doubling down on, virtually all of the very policies he once denounced with such great superiority and condescension?  Hmmmm.  From Guantanamo Bay to the Patriot Act to the abuse of war powers to increasing the nation’s debt to … Continue reading
