On Heroes and Dignity and Slavery

A friend of mine posted something recently that I thought really hit the nail on the head.  I have pasted it below for your reading pleasure.

I would like to add my own thoughts to what she calls the “Katrina Problem.”  Our reliance on ‘heroes’ also has an impact on our own perception of ourselves.  There are a lot of people out there who, in the name of love, stoop low to help others.  When you do this often enough in an all encompassing and pervasive way, the people cannot help themselves any longer.  (You could ask:  So, did you… continue reading...

Ron Weddington’s Racist, Bigoted, (Malthusian), Evil letter to Bill Clinton after his election

I came across this recently and it took me a bit to track down the original document.  It seems that it may only be available in pdf?  Here is the PDF I found of the original.  So that it might get wider exposure, I asked a trusted ACM volunteer to transcribe it for me.  I think the insight into the mind of certain folks gained from reading it is valuable.  It’s also more evidence that this way of thinking didn’t die with the Nazis.

(Ron Weddington was co-counsel for the pro-abortion camp in the Roe vs. Wade camp)

Dear Republicans: You are Fired

I just love hearing all the tough talk from Republicans right now going after Obama’s stimulus bill and acting all ‘conservative.’  Where was this tough talk 4 months ago?  You’re fighting a 1 trillion measure that isn’t going to do jack for the economy under Obama but you laid down for 1 trillion in handouts that didn’t do jack for the economy when it was Bush.

Honestly, I don’t believe your tough words.  You don’t really believe them yourself.  You read the political winds and calculate what you think will get the most people to like you, and theoretically, the … continue reading...

Gay Democrat gives Bush his proper due

I stumbled upon this essay by a man who apparently is gay and a Democrat giving tribute to President Bush.  That was enough to intrigue me.  While obviously I disagree on a number of points I found the article as welcome proof that one can find decent people across the spectrum.  If only there were more of them we could have a conversation worth having.

Naturally, too, while agreeing with the author that Bush ‘failed’ in certain areas, he and I would disagree on which. But we do have strong agreement about where Bush succeeded.

Without further ado, here is … continue reading...

The Coming Nationalization of America: Without a Wimper

On the Drudge today they had an article discussing how the Ayers-Alinksy administration is not using the word ‘nationalization.’   In that article, the following statement regarding the continued nationalization (ie, the auto industry) is made:

It all sounds perilously close to a word that no one in Obama’s camp wants to be caught uttering: nationalization.

Not since Harry Truman seized America’s steel mills in 1952 rather than allow a strike to imperil the conduct of the Korean War has Washington toyed with nationalization, or its functional equivalent, on this kind of scale. Obama may be thinking what Truman told his
