“Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of the government. The history of government is a history of resistance. The history of liberty is the history of the limitation of government, not the increase of it.”
“We want one class of persons to have a liberal education, and we want another class of persons, a very much larger class of necessity in every society, to forgo the privilege of a liberal education and fit themselves to perform specific difficult manual tasks.”
President Obama wants to fight global warming by crashing the coal industry, and making electricity prices “skyrocket” for those of use who don’t regularly attend Obama fundraisers.
If the president were really serious about fighting global warming, he might take note of just how effective the North Korean Environmental Protection Agency has been in their efforts to save the planet:
Really, now, can you seriously believe that Obama has had his heart in fighting global warming?
Strange that a Obama-appointed judge would find a state election law that worked great for decades unconstitutional, or say he thought it would be declared as such, just so he could let Conyers back on.
Famed international climate expert, former presidential candidate, yachtsman, and “ladies’ man” to wealthy widows, John Forbes Kerry (“JFK” to his groupies”) pronounces that “97 percent of the scientists of the world” are warning us about global warning.
One has to marvel at the subtle and sophisticated “news judgment” that purportedly takes place over at San Joe’s major metropolitan newspaper.
On one recent news day, the editorial experts at the Murk were presented with a menu of the following weighty news stories, every one clamoring for immortality on the mangled carcasses of innocent deceased trees:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that if a new select committee on Benghazi is to be fair, it must have even numbers of lawmakers from both parties.
But that was some other Nancy Pelosi.
Brendan Buck, a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), said Pelosi hasn’t always thought select committees needed even numbers of members from both parties to be fair. He emailed reporters a 2007 press release from then-Speaker Pelosi, when she formed a select committee on climate change. That committee had a 9-to-6 ratio, in favor of Democrats.
So, can we stop the stupid (and expensive) political theater where the President has to gas up Air Force One and fly off to every hurricane, tornado, strong breeze, and sewer backup so that he can get a photo op and looks worried, concerned, caring, compassionate, strong, resolute, decisive, and — oh, did I say — concerned, caring, and compassionate?
Yes, I know. We are in a kind of political hostage situation, where the Out Party will criticize the In Party, if the Innies look anything less than — did I say — concerned, caring, and compassionate.
But, couldn’t we have a summit conference and a peace treaty, where both sides get together and agree once and for all that a once-a-year “compassion-fest” will suffice for all the travel miles and jet fuel, with the stipulation that the leaders and foot soldiers of each and every faction care fully and compassionately about the helpless innocent victims of each and every act of God or Gaia or craven corporate plutocrat who causes on oil spill or train wreck.
