Quote of the Day

“Let me warn you, and let me warn the nation, against the smooth evasion that says: “Of course we believe these things. We believe in social security. We believe in work for the unemployed. We believe in saving homes. Cross our hearts and hope to die! We believe in all these things. But we do not like the way that the present administration is doing them. Just turn them over to us. We will do all of them, we will do more of them, we will do them better and, most important of all, the doing of them will not … Continue reading

Willis on December 12, 2015 at 11:00am In his 2000 essay, “The Origins of Political Correctness,” Bill Lind wrote: “We call it political correctness,The name originated something as a joke, literally in a comic strip, and we tend to think of it as only half serious.

On Social Security, We Could Follow the Examples of Chile and Canada

From Canada Free Press Greece should be sparking more talk about how we address the runaway spending in this country, which is due in large part to the dysfunctionality of our Social Security system. Now I am not going to propose anything about cutting your Social Security benefits, which is what the Democrats scream about every time someone brings up this problem. They don’t want anyone to consider real solutions to this problem. Greece has promised retirees more and more free stuff, and they can’t pay the bill. Why do we think it’s going to turn out any differently here? … Continue reading

Quote Of The Day — May 22, 2015

. “Law and order is a social service. Crime and the fear which the threat of crime induces can paralyse whole communities, keep lonely and vulnerable elderly people shut up in their homes, scar young lives and raise to cult status the swaggering violent bully who achieves predatory control over the streets. I suspect that there would be more support and less criticism than today’s political leaders imagine for a large shift of resources from Social Security benefits to law and order – as long as rhetoric about getting tough on crime was matched by practice.” Margaret Thatcher, (October 13, … Continue reading

Means Testing, Marxism and Chris Christie

Remember that old book, Animal Farm?  That glorious, little book which every American child reads in grade school and whose lessons are promptly forgotten by so many in adulthood?  Yes, that’s the one.  It’s a story about achieving communism through incrementalism.  Here’s how it works:  you begin with what seems like a noble purpose and you establish a set of rules.  Then slowly, over time, the powers that be begin to change the rules…one by one…, until one day people wake up and what they have no longer resembles the noble thing that they were sold, but that’s okay because … Continue reading

I Don’t Think ‘Pissed’ Really Covers It…

~This came as a “forward” in my e-mail today and I thought I should share it. It reflects what many of us already think of our “glorious” leadership; political parties, notwithstanding… Received: March 20, 2014 Ms. Myers doesn’t mince words or “sugar coat” them! She is quite perceptive of the corruption infesting Congress – and of the rest of the federal government. Some serious “house cleaning” is necessary and too long delayed! Dave, I think she is pissed off? Alan Simpson, the Republican Senator from Wyoming calls senior citizens the Greediest Generation as he compared “Social Security ” to a Milk … Continue reading

The Life of an Illegal Immigrant

Twenty years ago, at the age of 30, this woman swam the Rio Grande River to get to America and make a better life for herself. See for yourself how she’s doing. She’s getting $250 in food stamps and $700 in social security. That’s just $950 a month – not much to live on, but you don’t need much if your housing and medications are paid for too. That’s our money the government is giving her. Now multiply that by the millions more just like her, and the hundreds more who come across the border on a daily basis. Did she … Continue reading

ObamaScare : Just Pay The Fine

THE TED OFFENSIVE Obamacare? Just don’t sign up. Pay the fine, preserve some  freedom.            The Obama administration has had almost four years to strategize, organize,  test and implement a technological solution for Americans to sign up for his  dysfunctional Obamacare Scam. The website, like Obamacare itself, is an embarrassing anti-health-care  nightmare. Even some Fedzillacrats admit that in order for the Fedzilla health-care  Ponzi Scheme to work, young and healthy Americans must be forced to sign up and  then get knowingly ripped off by paying outrageous premiums in order to finance  health care of the growing numbers of various freeloaders and … Continue reading
