Tennessee Dem on female Republicans: “You have to lift their skirts to find out if they are women” -- With every day, the deeply-held racism and sexism of the average Democrat--not just elected Democrats, but those rank-and-file voters who vote for these racist/sexist mouthpieces--becomes more apparent. To vote for a Democrat is to vote for a racist, a sexist, a socialist, an ultimately a thug. It drags the voter down to that level, if he or she is not there already.

If you are a Democrat voter who is not a racist or a sexist, you really need to open your eyes and ears to what the people you are voting for are saying--because they are speaking for you. Oh, the racism and sexism are most often cloaked in high-sounding words like "fairness" and "rights" and "equality" but the core of all of those concepts, in the mind of a Democrat, is a very, very ugly view of people different from the Privileged Class--the Class for which the Democratic Party truly works to maintain.

Don't like class-based politics? Don't like race-based politics? Don't like sex-based politics? Think that everybody truly should have equal access to law and opportunity? Think that people should progress based on ability, not on race, sex, class, or anything other than their determination and talent (and the usual little bit of luck?) Then you can't vote for a Democrat, because while they say things that sound kinda like they support those things, what they actually do is consistently, profoundly destructive of equality before the law and the concept that "all men are created equal."

Shocker: Government Subsidization of Movies Comes With Editorial Strings Attached -- I'm not sure why people keep putting the word "shocker" in front of post titles. So many outrageous things happen, how can you really be shocked any more? Disgusted, yes. Appalled, yes. Enraged, yes. Shocked?

Media gets low ratings from public -- I'd be OK with "shocker" in front of this title . . . for purposes of ironic humor . . . Meritocracy and teachers unions cannot coexist -- Vouchers for everyone. Make schools--including and especially public schools--compete for students. I mean really compete, on the only thing that really matters: students learning what they need to become more successful in life. Everything else is fluff--at best.

And, demolish the U.S. Department of Education. Take off and nuke the entire bureaucracy from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.


Bloomberg Businessweek, on "the mother of all bailouts" -- We can't keep doing this. By that I mean, we will not be able to continue to do this. It will end. It can end while we have some kind of control over the situation (call it a "soft landing") or it will end badly. Very, very badly. Weimar-Republic Germany badly. For now, we still have a choice. But the window of opportunity to fix this like rational, reasonable people is closing. Rapidly.

New Yeasts to Produce More Flavoursome Light Beer -- Meanwhile, this is what the Europeans are wasting their money on . . .

Bob Etheridge’s Criminal Assault

Fox poll: 54% want independent investigation into Sestak, Romanoff job offers -- Well, the rules are: Republican Administration: 20% is enough to get an independent investigation; Democrat Administration: 80% required to get a whitewash investigation, 115% to get an independent investigation. Because everybody knows Democrats are just that much more ethical than Republicans are. And if you disagree, they'll punch you out for trying to video them.

The Birth of Defiance
The American flag is not a symbol of conquest. It has passed above countless captive lands, and returned home when those lands were freed. Spoiled children love to whine about wars of conquest, fought for money and oil. What a sad little fantasy! The flag of the United States has never been carried by thieves. It rises over the sites of disasters around the world, glowing on the uniform of soldiers who shoulder their rifles to carry food and medicine. It stood watch upon the ramparts we built to save Europe from communism, after we saved them from fascism. We have made a gift of the future to broken nations across the globe, and often receive nothing but sneering contempt in return. We’d do it again in a heartbeat.

South Carolina voter: I voted for Alvin Greene because … his name reminded me of Al Green -- I have a friend, who was once a fairly stalwart conservative, who voted for Obama because he "didn't like the kind of people who were voting for McCain." I hope he's happy, because frankly, I thought then that he's was idiot on this one, and nothing since then has caused me to doubt that judgment.

Daniel Hannan: I admit it — I was wrong to have supported Obama -- This will become more and more common in the coming days . . . there are already anecdotal reports of people scraping the Obama/Biden 2008 bumper stickers off of their cars . . .

The smog and pollution in China provide us with a valuable lesson: the standard libertarian paradigm of property rights needs to be extended to the environment. First-use homesteading must be the basis of environmental rights, which are currently socialized property.
