Liberals, I Have A Challenge For You

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/09/17

I have a challenge for you Liberals. I know you loathe challenges, so much so that you have even refused to allow scorekeeping in some organized youth sports. But try to get over your fear of challenges to accept my challenge. I have a single rule for you to follow by letter and spirit:

You shall not covet your countryman’s house. You shall not covet your countryman’s ability to have a domestic staff, his car or bank account, or anything that belongs to your countryman.

Now the challenge. After reading and fully understanding the single rule, and obeying that rule, put in writing your economic and social agenda for getting the US out of its financial and social morass.

There. That’s the challenge. Do you have the intestinal fortitude to accept the challenge?

I expect Liberals to have three responses to the challenge.
1) Ignore it completely, as many before have done.
2) Complain about how unfair the rule is.
3) Ignore the rule completely while putting forth an agenda that violates the rule with practically every step.

Prove me wrong, oh great and wise Liberals. I challenge you.

Greece Is Collapsing

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/09/17

HT Smitty for the video.

Europe is starting to figure out the Keynesian religion is a religion of State death. Greece is going to default on its debt and I doubt any reasonable person will disagree. Greece’s massive Leftist handouts to everyone on the backs of the producers has created a system that was guaranteed to fail from the start. And now it has failed.

As Spain found out, a government-forced “green jobs” program (which happens to have Communist-red roots wherever it is pushed or mandated) is very, very expensive. To the tune of 2.2 other private sector jobs for each “green” job and untold debt placed on the taxpayers, who are now far less able to manage the debt since so many jobs were destroyed in the process of going “green.” As Spain also found out, a government-run health care system only works when the government is awash in cash; not when the government is awash in debt.

As Spain, France, Germany, Greece, England, other European nations found out, when a government runs out of Other People’s Money (OPM) and has to reduce the amount of freebies handed to the leeches (that is, Leftists) at the expense of the producers, the leeches riot, destroy property, and act like the prepubescent spoiled brat criminals they are.

But the American Liberal has not figured any of that out yet. The American Liberal is still trying to force the US down the path Greece took, expecting the results to be different this time. It failed in the Soviet Union. It failed in Cuba. It failed in Venezuela. It failed in China (which is why China opened the door partially to free market capitalism). It failed in all the European countries. It is failing in the US as well. But the American Liberal, in all his insanity, keeps his cranial-rectal inversion fully functional and continues to push for the selfsame things that are sinking the European Union.

Hispanics And Voter ID

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/09/17

The Democrats and the mainstream media (one and the same) have pushed this meme that Voter ID is raaaaacist and Republicans and Conservatives are raaaaacist in pushing it. The Democrats and mainstream media push the idea that Voter ID is an attempt to prevent minorities from voting. So, let’s find out how minorities feel about it, shall we? In particular, the Hispanic minority. How do Hispanics feel about Voter ID? Well, they are in very strong support of Voter ID.

The Washington Examiner (HT Hot Air Headlines) reported on a poll conducted among Hispanic voters.

As part of a broad survey of Hispanic attitudes on a variety of political issues, the poll, conducted for the conservative group Resurgent Republic, asked a sample of 1,200 voters the following question: “As you may have heard, many states are considering laws that would require registered voters to present photo identification, such as a driver’s license, in order to cast their vote. Do you support or oppose those laws?”

In Florida, 88 percent of those surveyed said they support the laws, while just ten percent oppose them. In Colorado 71 percent support the law, while 26 percent oppose, and in New Mexico, 73 percent support the law, while 25 percent oppose. In general, Hispanic voters in Colorado and New Mexico are more liberal than those in Florida. But strong majorities in all three states favor photo ID laws.

The overwhelming support for photo ID contrasts sharply with the intense opposition to such laws in the Justice Department, the Democratic party, and the civil rights establishment. In June, Democratic National Committee chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz called voter ID laws the work of Republicans “who want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws and literally — and very transparently — block access to the polls to voters who are more likely to vote Democratic.”

Debbie Wasserman Schultz will get nowhere among the independent voters with that “Jim Crow” garbage, and even less traction among the people who know who set up the Jim Crow Laws, but that is not her intent. Her intent is to continue the Liberal Lie.

As Mackubin T Owens wrote for the Ashbrook Center for Public Affairs at Ashland University in 2002 (prominently linked in my sidebar):

The Democratic Party’s war against African-Americans continued after the Civil War (which many Democrats in fact opposed, often working actively to undercut the Union war effort). Democrats, both north and south fought the attempt to implement the equality for African-Americans gained at such a high cost. This opposition was often violent. Indeed, the Ku Klux Klan operated as the de facto terrorist arm of the national Democratic Party during Reconstruction.

Democrats defeated Reconstruction in the end and on its ruins created Jim Crow. Democratic liberalism did not extend to issue of race. Woodrow Wilson was the quintessential “liberal racist,” a species of Democrat that later included the likes of William Fulbright of Arkansas, Sam Ervin of North Carolina, and Albert Gore, father of Al, of Tennessee.

So no, it is not Republicans who created and maintained Jim Crow laws, but rather Democrats who did so. That is historical record that no Democrat wants the general public to know about. But moron Debbie Whatsername Schmuck’s rant. “and literally — and very transparently — block access to the polls to voters who are more likely to vote Democratic.” What is Voter ID designed to do? Block felons who don’t have voting rights, illegal aliens, people who used ACORN voter registration fraud tactics to register multiple times under multiple names and multiple addresses, dead people, pets, under-age people from fraudulently casting their illegal votes. So yes, that is a class of people who vote almost exclusively Democrat.

But Voter ID has nothing to do with “race” or ethnicity, and even the overwhelming majority of Hispanic voters know that. Voter ID has everything with the purity and authenticity and legitimacy of the vote. Actually, I want slimeballs like Debbie to continue spreading the Leftist lies among the Hispanic community because the Hispanic community as a whole knows the truth. And the Leftist lies will shove more Hispanic voters into voting Republican, where their moral positions naturally place them anyway.
