In the lifestyles of the rich and famous, Michael Bloomberg, is in the top one percent. He is the 16th richest person in the world, down from the 13th BECAUSE…of how much he had to spend to be Mayor of New York.
Michael has the proud honor of having spent the most self-financed campaign in U.S. History when he ran for a third term as mayor of New York. He spent almost $110 million of his own money to win in 2009, breaking his own previous record of $75 million that he spent in 2001 and 2005. This means that he spent about $185 dollars a vote and won by a margin of 4.4 percent.
“Bloomberg is richer than ever, with his fortune up $6 billion since last year, thanks to the performance of Bloomberg LP, the financial data firm he founded in 1982 after being fired from Salomon Brothers. He owns 88% of the company, which generated $8.3 billion in 2013 revenues. Bloomberg also owns at least 10 homes in Manhattan, Westchester County, Bermuda, Vail and the Hamptons”
How did ONE man become so rich, so rich that he even granted himself a third term as mayor, by changing the law?
He is THE King of Wall Street: From Wiki….
In 1982, Merrill Lynch became the new company’s first customer, installing 22 of the company’s Market Master terminals and investing $30 million in the company. The company was renamed Bloomberg L.P. in 1987. By 1990, it had installed 8,000 terminals. Over the years, ancillary products including Bloomberg News, Bloomberg Message, and Bloomberg Tradebook were launched.
On October 2, 2008, Bloomberg announced that he would seek to extend the city’s term limits law and run for a third mayoral term in 2009, arguing that a leader of his field is needed during the Wall Street financial crisis. “Handling this financial crisis while strengthening essential services … is a challenge I want to take on,”
He is socially liberal or progressive, supporting abortion rights, same-sex marriage, gun control measures, and a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants, for example. On economics, foreign, and domestic issues, Bloomberg tends to be conservative.
Nobody will be surprised if Bloomberg runs for President in 2016, against Hillary. This nobody thinks he might be the surprise nobody is counting on
After all, he fits the New World Order Presidential Control Freak…..PERFECTLY.
He’s a progressive Rino with lots of money.
On January 31, 2014, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced that he had appointed Mr. Bloomberg as his Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change, assisting him in consultations with mayors and related key stakeholders to raise political will and mobilize action among cities as part of a long-term strategy to advance efforts on climate change.
This year, Harvard gave Bloomberg and Daddy Bush awards, and Bloomberg delivered the commencement speech in which he scolded the students for not letting in the conservative voice….Like him—-the rich globalist Rino, which IS no different than Obama, or Hillary, or Jeb Bush, or Chris Christie.
We had Mitt Romney…Wall Street guy. Will Bloomberg get in the next race?
Remember, he HAS the money, and that was all he needed in New York.
And if Michael Bloomberg should get into the Presidency, would he continue the globalist agenda of controlling us all? Would he simply BAN guns like he banned big gulps? After all, Obama tried to get it done, but didn’t.
Sometimes, a Nobody Wins, and how SWEET it is!
And coming from me personally, it sure is nice to be able to post a win in the Nobody Wins category, because, more often than not, we don’t.
Dave Brat is refreshing to the point, speaks to the truth, has good ideas, and in the words of Mark Levine “A great American!”
Tonight, history: Dave Brat, a nobody, defeated the GOP majority leader of the house, Eric Cantor. This has never happened before in our history— a majority leader has never been defeated in an American primary before.
It’s a people’s victory, but Nobody Knows just HOW the established Rockefeller Rhinos in the Congress will react to this great people’s victory. Will they buckle down on more attacks? Ignore the victory and continue to work with Obama to pass immigration reform? (amnesty) Try not to talk about it? As I speak, Dave Brat is trying to distance himself from every party, running instead of the obvious fact that Washington is corrupt and needs fixing.
Smart. Both parties now will try to destroy him with the words, “Tea Party.” Because both parties have tried to make a dirty word.
And Dave has given that a lot of thought to the attacks: it’s called…be honest.
Hey, it worked for Abe Lincoln. George Washington. And people love it.
While we can all get a wonderful feeling from this tonight, if a Jeb Bush gets elected in 2016, WITH the expanded power of the Presidency that has been put in place by George W. Bush AND Obama, the Congress will continue to be impotent, ( even with Dave Brat) unless of course, the Senate gets more people like Brat elected.
And speaking of being elected—
Nobody Knows if Hillary Clinton is already campaigning for the Presidency, by pushing her new book. Hillary was bragging to Diane Sawyer about how she did a great job turning the opinion around of the world about the United States, as Secretary of State. (Okay, she’s running.)
(Diane did not mention the reset button with Russia, wonder why?)
Nobody Knows where she gets this fantasy, because America is hated and laughed at more now than ever. And she completely denied responsibility for Benghazi….why, she had no idea that Libya was a dangerous country. Her ‘spin’?
“I’m not equipped to sit and look at blueprints, to determine where the blast walls need to be or where the reinforcements need to be,” she added. “That’s why we hire people who have that expertise.”
(You don’t need a blueprint to know that Libya was dangerous Hillary. All you need to do is read your mail, and read the news. You CAN read, right?)
Nobody Knows exactly WHAT Hillary is equipped for, because the only thing she seems to have talent at is lying and corruption. Right now her legacy seems to have been handed down to her successor, who is just as clueless as she was.
Secretary of State John Kerry says it’s “a lot of baloney” to suggest the five Taliban prisoners released in exchange for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will return to battle and kill Americans.
Nobody Knows how John Kerry came to this brilliant observation.
And speaking of Baloney—
Obama is now going to pivot to another one of his pet peeves: Americans owning guns.
“We are the only developed country on earth where this happens, and it happens now once a week,” Obama said at the White House, hours after a gunman shot and killed a student at an Oregon High School in the latest shooting incident.”
“There is no place else like this!” he said, adding that America should be ashamed it could not enact even the mildest gun reforms.
Obama said the “biggest frustration” of his presidency so far was that Washington had not even taken “basic steps” to keep guns out of the hands of people that can do “unbelievable damage.”
if this sounds familiar it’s the exact same thing he said about health care: According to Obama, we were the only country in the world that didn’t have it.
Yes, Obama wants guns out of the hands of the people, but guns in the hands of the police, well that’s another matter: He’s supplying the police forces all over the country with military hardward, making them into a standing army:
“You have a lot of people who are coming out of the military that have the ability and knowledge to build I.E.D.’s and to defeat law enforcement techniques,” Sgt. Dan Downing of the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department told the local Fox affiliate, referring to improvised explosive devices, or homemade bombs.
Nobody Knows but it seems clear: Obama is afraid of the American people. He wants them unarmed, and controlled, and Nobody Knows if Congress will stop this.
But what we DO know, is that the men in power will not go quietly.
All you have to do is listen to Cantor’s speech after defeat: It sounded like he was still running.
You have to hand it to politicians: They want the family business to stay in the family. And they have all the connections and ‘bribes” and “favors” to get their kids and grandkids into office.
So what can a democrat, with a Ex-President grandfather who was very unpopular with conservatives, do to get the white vote in Georgia?
He’s going to stop banning the confederate flag. How magnanimous of him.
Think that will work? Will anybody dare ask the kid about Obamacare?
As for Chelsea Clinton, she’ll be running for office sooner than you think. And I don’t know about you, but I’m already sick of hearing about Chelsea’s baby. There is something so very un-American about treating the birth of a elite’s baby like the second coming of Christ.
I guess the Clinton’s just couldn’t stand the competition from Prince William, one second longer. One thing we do know, a Clinton baby is going to have a hard time competing with William’s and Kate’s child.
He’s a REAL fire quacker.
You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see that Hillary Clinton is lining up her generals in Virginia, Terry McAuliffe and his pick for Lieutenant Governor, Dr. (I won’t shake your hand if you’re a Christian) Ralph Northan, both won in Virgin last night.
During an on-air debate, Ralph Northam, the McAuliffe-backed Democrat running for Lt. Gov. in Virginia, refused to shake hands with E. W. Jackson, his GOP opponent, who happens to be a black minister. Democratic Virginia lieutenant gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam on Friday stressed during an interview with the Washington Blade that he feels ending anti-LGBT discrimination in the commonwealth is good for the state’s economy.
(The state economy? That’s stretching it a bit too far don’t you think?) Is that going to be the democratic platform: The economy is bad because people just hate women, blacks, AND gays?
Of course, they had loads of help from Karl Rove and the Republican Party, who want to back Chris Christie in 2016, because they know he will lose to Hillary. This will force the true conservatives to run on a third party ticket (which they are hoping for) and therefore when Hillary wins, they can blame it on the tea party.
Nobody has always Wondered why the Bushes and the Clinton’s have always been so close.
It’s all about the global. Remember, Jeb Bush just gave Hillary an award.
In the meantime, a democrat can refuse to shake the hand of a black man, and still win, on points that the black man is conservative. If a white Republican refused to shake the hand of a black Democratic opponent, we would never hear the end of it.
Nobody Wonders if that race in Virginia’ didn’t come down to who had the most money and who played the dirtiest?
Earl W. Jackson gave one of the most rousing patriotic speeches in the history of Virginia. He wins the Nobody’s Fool award for this week, hands down!
Watch, enjoy, and then stand up and applaud!
This year’s CPAC was full of surprises. Every year, the candidate who won the straw poll, usually went on to win the nomination for the party, but this year, Karl Rove has his work cut out for him–it was the libertarian Rand Paul who won—Marco Rubio came in second, probably due to the fact that Ann Coulter ripped him to shreds about his immigration issues. As great as Rubio is: he is on board with amnesty, which would make him a good VP for Jeb Bush, and as Ann pointed out, you get amnesty, you get democrats forever more.
I bet Rubio didn’t see that coming. Nobody can steamroll you like Ann.
Already this morning Karl Rove was on some talk show, telling everyone that Rand Paul just got lucky and took a propitious moment doing the filibuster, because Eric Holder screwed up by not answering his questions on drones, and he ran with it. Karl thought it was smart, but then he went on another one of his famous Rove attacks. Why, nobody knows that Rand Paul would have arrested Anwar Al-Awlaki instead of killing him with a drone. Americans, don’t know how bad Rand Paul would be on protecting us.
I’ve heard Rand Paul talk about this incident, and he has said time and again that he is not against using drones in a war zone..but when the 16-year-old, Abdulrahman Al-Awlaki, was also killed in the attack, Jay Carney had this to say about it, and Rand Paul didn’t like it much:
“I would suggest that you should have a far more responsible father if they are truly concerned about the well being of their children. I don’t think becoming an al Qaeda jihadist terrorist is the best way to go about doing your business.”
I listened to the speakers most of the day while I was cleaning my house.. all of them were good, some were boring. The crowd to me looked very small, and you have to wonder how much it costs to go there, rent a hotel, buy tickets…I know I couldn’t afford it. Republicans don’t bus people in.
Sarah Palin was amazing in her speech and form. She is becoming adept at being a great speaker, and no doubt will make most of her living off of it. She mixed the Big Gulp with the “I got the rack” joke. She was a real hit, but did she put her name in the straw poll?
No. Sarah has no intention of running. And then, after Sarah, came my favorite, Phyllis Schlafly, the grand old lady…walking slow, proud, she almost reminded me of the great Ronald Reagan. I first learned about her through Ann Coulter. To me, this woman is right up there with Margaret Thatcher. No, she never ran for office, but she has done great things for America…
Listen to this speech, it’s a winner! (start at 1.35 and skip the jokes if you like.)
Like the great Ronald Reagan, Mrs. Schlafly is a real fighter, and like Reagan she speaks with a clear, voice of reason.
She, more than anybody there…had it right. (In my Nobody Opinion)
There IS a fight for the heart and soul of the Republican party right now. This last loss was worst than the rest and Phyllis Schlafly hit the Rhino’s where it hurts. It’s probably the reason you can’t find her speech on YouTube. (I couldn’t.)
She called every one of the Republican nominees in the last decade a “bunch of losers.” And then she pointed out, who is keeping those losers at the top. Karl Rove.
“We need to have the grass roots take over these bunch of losers.”
And if there is an Rhino enemy list: in my mind, Karl Rove is right at the top, . Now, when I see Karl Rove on TV, I turn Fox off. If we all did that, sooner or later FOX would get him off of there. According to Phyllis, Karl had 400 millions to spend, on 31 candidates and he only won 7 races.
If CNN and MSNBC, are working for the Democrats, FOX has way too much time given to Karl Rove, who basically lost the last election for us. I don’t think he wanted Romney to win. If he comes out promoting Jeb Bush, then odds are, Romney’s loss was no big deal to him.
Of course the libs are already making fun of CPAC. One guy said it was as if he was watching some old outdated Moose lodge fraternity meeting. And really, that’s how they defeat us. The main points everyone made throughout the day was none of them were good at getting the message across.
The real problem is: The Republican message is very weak.
Nobody Suggests: We give Rand some help. I have been blaming George W. Bush for Obama being elected: It seems, I have been blaming the wrong person: It’s Karl Rove we need to get rid of.
I hate to say it, but I will: I never liked George H.W. Bush the first. There was something almost pansy about him…and for those of us who were living when Ronald Reagan was President, Daddy Bush (I always call him Daddy Bush) was annoying in comparison. His high winy voice grated on me. I hated to watch him on TV. The “Read my lips” phrase that he made, was more than just a blunder, it was almost as bad as when Bill Clinton wagged his finger and said, “I did NOT have sex with that women.”
Condescending Presidents…Why do they get so uppity and snotty, and condescending? Reagan never did. He was gracious throughout his life. He believed in us, and we believed in him.
And like most people, I hate liars. When Daddy Bush launched the first Iraq War…he gave the excuse that it was a NOBLE ONE…to ‘protect the poor innocent Kuwait’s.’ A big bully Saddam was attacking his neighbor, and the U.S. was going in to help. Every single politicians uses that excuse every single time they send our boys somewhere….because we are a good people, and it works.
We should stop falling for it.
Back when Daddy Bush was President, I hadn’t read about the great deals that President’s had made during WWII….how the British, and the Americans helped carve up the middle East. The oil deals FDR made with the Sheiks of Saudi Arabia. I didn’t think about all that….I just listened to the “glory” of an American victory.
But I’m younger than that now. And when George W. Bush ran, eight years of the masterful lying Bill Clinton was so bad, George was easily elected. And then 9.11 and we’ve been at war since.
No one in the Bush administration went down for not protecting the skies over America. The lies they told about it…”We NEVER imagined”…yada, yada: …were almost criminal.
So, eight years of Daddy Bush, eight years of Bill Clinton, eight years of Daddy’s Bush son, eight years of Obama, and now…they want to add eight years of Jeb Bush. That’s 24 years with one family.
I don’t think I can take eight years more of Daddy’s Bush continuing dreams of globalization..and eight years is a long time in one life. Lots can happen in eight years. It’s almost like there’s a club of elites who just rotate the power…isn’t it?
Last week I was listening to the Rush Limbaugh program and a caller called in and was in despair: In his lifetime, he realized he would never live to see America come back to its sanity. Rush was agreeing with him but he insisted that we must think of the grandchildren.
WHY? Don’t we have a right to get it right for ourselves in our own liftime? To me…that was accepting defeat.
And that’s what seems wrong to many of us.
For instance: Jeb Bush. Jeb Bush has been on every single talk show he can think of: it’s said he is promoting his book, but there isn’t one reporter that cannot help but ask him if he is running for President. And if you notice, he got a big touchy about it when asked who was the better candidate from Florida to run for President, himself, or Marco Rubio.
“Man you guys are crack addicts, you’re really obsessed with all this politics,” Bush said.
Obviously, Jeb Bush wants to run for President. He had come out early simply because Rand Paul is making a nice entrance as a contender with the filibuster, and the GOP-Rhino’s have to get their boy out there. Both his father and his brother have come out publically on many occasions and said they want to see Jeb in the White House. So, Jeb wasn’t mad about being asked if he is going to run…just like a true politician, he can’t announce it now…timing is everything, but the sound of Marco Rubio’s name infuriated him.
I am sick of lying politicians: Just be honest and say you’re going to run. Don’t give us this, “I am going to do what’s best for my family and the country.” crap.
What’s best for the country, is not another Bush. (Or Obama or Hillary, OR Bill) Leave the place empty…good lord, that poor house needs to be aired out.
I remember Daddy Bush taking Jeb to see Obama in the White House…several times. I have said, and I still say: That what the liberals should be harping about is that the good old boy’s white man WASP club wanted to let a black man in the White House, because the truth being, they wanted Universal Health Care to pass, and amnesty and they didn’t want the GOP to be remembered as having passed it. Even Jeb Bush says that next to Obama, George W. Bush will be well thought of.
So…Daddy sees it as Obama will be SO bad, everyone will welcome Jeb just like they did George W.so many years ago because they were sick of Clinton. If Jeb had run last time, he would have lost.
For Jeb Bush to say that reporters are addicted to politics, while he is appearing on all their shows promoting himself to be the next President, while at the same time saying he is from the Reagan party…is so insidiously hypocritical, it’s almost laughable.
If anyone is an addict, it’s the Bush Family. They are so addicted to power, they plan to have President from their family clear up into the year 3000. . And the Bush Presidents, have just as much as Obama—- have helped to put America where it is today.
Too bad they don’t have Betty Ford power-rehab for politicians.
What do we do? We stand up for any Tea Party people we can…we keep on yelling, fighting, and get louder. And we should demand that the rich boys in Washington give power back to the people…and in our own lifetime..
Sorry Rush…if you can’t see that we deserve better in our own lifetime… then obviously, the Bush family is still sending you birthday cakes. And you will be leading the nation on the Jeb Bush for President pathway…
Don’t be surprised this time, if even more of us…stay home.
Once upon a time, my first husband and I decided to drive to California. Somewhere around Flagstaff, he had the great idea that HE KNEW a shortcut..
While, being the only sane person in the car with a sense of direction, I objected, but he insisted, as he pulled out some map some guy had given him at work..and we ended up hours later, lost…somewhere in the vast desert of Arizona…only about 900 miles out of our way, and 100 miles from any known gas station. It seemed a very lonely place that desert. I can’t imagine walking across it at night.
But millions do. And John McCain was at a town hall meeting recently in Arizona, talking about immigration:
One man yelled that only guns would discourage illegal immigration. Another man complained that illegal immigrants should never be able to become citizens or vote. A third man said illegal immigrants were illiterate invaders who wanted free government benefits.
McCain urged compassion. “We are a Judeo-Christian nation,” he said.
When McCain was running for President, the only thing we were told was that he had spent years in Vietnam as a prisoner of war, and came back and divorced his wife, and his campaign was saved by Sarah Palin. That’s all I know about John McCain, besides his Rhinoness.
BUT..I’m cleaning out old magazines this week, and low and behold, I found gold: According to the GLOBE (I know…I love it) John McCain and his wife were doing a really nice Jesse Jackson Jr. scam.
Once upon a time, Cindy McCain, who was already heir to $100 million dollar fortune which included a Anheuser -Busch beer distribution, decided to go into charity, (As all rich people do) and so she founded the American Voluntary Medical Team , a non-profit organization that would send doctors and nurses all over the third world . But Cindy was evidently stealing drugs like Vicondin and Percocer without anyone knowing it, and not small amounts either. John made it so Cindy could sail through customs without being checked. They caught her at it, and shut down her charity. John got her a good attorney and that was the end of that. We might remember that Rush Limbaugh was addicted to the same pain pills. Cindy went into drug rehab.
Too bad. Also…according to the article:
While none of this seems important today, Nobody Wonders: Here you had a drug addict, and a man who really had been involved in the Savings and Loan Scandals of the sixties, so Nobody Wonders why in the world did we not hear about all this stuff from Obama’s boys during the elections?
Compare John’s background to Mitt Romney–…Not one word was said about McCain.
And NOBODY Wonders…why?
Why Fox news, or any news outlet for that matter, did NOT post this response to Obama’s State of the Union speech last night.
Obviously, FOX news, who has Dana Perino, Bush’s old press secretary, and Karl Rove, Bush’s old adviser, on every single day, and they are there to promote the established Rhino’s.
Marco Rubio did a fine job last night, and it was obvious that he was setting himself up for the Republican ticket in 2016, but since he had the help of Jeb Bush in Florida, many people including myself, are afraid of the “Will Rubio become a Rhino after election?” because we have been so burned by the Bush family. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a Bush/Rubio ticket.
Rand Paul to me, is the most honest….and I’m not sure if he was taking about the TEA PARTY, or the Replication party here… It was a bit confusing since he IS a Republican. But here is not doubt, the party is split. The Rhino’s no longer represent the “people” or the Constitution, and so that is why Karl Rove is fighting along with the liberals to smash them altogether. It’s all about the power.
The speech was worth the watch…so for those who care…here it is.
Well…Donald Trump TRIED to make a big deal out of it, but evidently, Romney shut him down. Joe has done serious research into the fact that Obama broke the law, and forged documents to become President.
The fact that NOBODY in Congress…and that means…Nobody, even pursued this at all, is proof that they are all corrupt. All of them.
Because nobody wanted to get the man on fraud, he’s got complete power, and is grabbing more.
Ask yourself: What would George Washington have done?
HA. Firing squad. Traitors were shot back then.
With people like Glenn Beck saying constantly, “There ARE no conspiracies.” the powerful can do just about anything. Untill good men wise up, nothing will happen.
As my readers know, I was hoping, for all his faults and bombastic proclivity to promote himself, I was hoping Trump would have run. Obama needed to be hammered. Instead we got the “nice guy ” again. Nothing wrong with a nice guy, but you don’t bring a puppy to a knife fight.
I think the Rhino’s talked Trump out of running. …got him to back Romney with promises of great real estate deals.
And…now..I go to rake the leaves off my yard. Sorry Joe…the American people..still love ya! Don’t stop fighting.
One of my readers, sent me a very interesting article written by a Mr. Roger Simon, called, “Mind Your Own Beeswax!”: How Social Conservatives Can Win by Losing”
Mr. Simons’ main beef is about social conservatives and how they want to interfere in the lives of others, thereby being just as hypocritical as the left ( Read the article here.) –and that’s why the Republicans lost due to the women’s vote.
Oh my— blame it on those poor women. Those stupid Republicans need to be MORE hypocritical!
Being a woman myself, I wondered how I got a such a whole other sense from the elections–so I am simply going to write a letter to Mr. Simon, because frankly, I think he has been watching too much CNN. ——–
Dear Mr. Simon
After reading your article “Mind Your Own Beeswax” : How Social Conservatives Can Win by Losing.”, I must admit, I had no idea that it was the women that voted in Obama. I’ve heard from several different sources that it was the Latino vote. I’ve also heard that Romney lost because the Ron Paul supporters stayed home. There is a good possibility that Obama won by fraud, because of the fact that Soros bought the main frame that tallies the votes in Spain. I’ve already posted proof of how easily that could be done. Most people pick one or the other depending on their opinions on life, but the fact of the matter is, Obama got less votes than he did 2008, and Romney had much more support than McCain, so what’s the real truth? You say, it’s because of the Republican’s stance on women’s social issues.
Mr. Simon, I don’t recall Romney or any of the Republican candidates coming out and saying, “Yes, we must repeal Roe VS Wade, and all women should get back into the home and start having babies.” If you have a video of that somewhere I’d love to see it.
Nope. It was the Democrats that put that fear into the hearts of all the young single women, (the married women voted for Romney) because they know how hard it is right now for these women. They are having to raise the babies on their own, without another paycheck to help out, and on top of that, having to buy expensive Nike’s and cell phones, and pay for cable TV all by themselves simply because they can’t find a man to marry them, now can they? An extra paycheck in this economy goes a long way.
And why can’t they find a man to marry them? Are you saying they see an advantage in being single?
It was the Democrats who MADE the women the issue, not the Republicans, who were playing pretty poor defense on the ‘women’s’ issues the whole time. It’s the liberals who think that young single girls must not be …what did Obama say? Be burdened withe a baby. That’s right, a baby is a burden.
And in this economy, to a young single women, he’s right. Whew…the cost of diapers alone is enough to make you wonder if you will be able to afford paying that monthly IPHONE bill. After all, you NEED that phone to send baby pictures to all your friends!
Obama is giving women free condoms and abortions, so they can keep having sex, and still be able to use that what little money they are making at the Pizza place on basic necessities: Like buying new pumps, SUV’s, or IPADs. Is it any wonder that they vote for him?
Should the Republicans have offered free IPads to the girls? Why not just buy the votes like the Democrats..that would make more sense, then you can keep your conservative principles.
“For every single woman out there, who votes Republican, we will give her a brand new Ipod, Iphone, AND a $100 dollar certificate to Banana Republic!”
There, I just put the Republicans back in power. You’re welcome. But back to your article—
You said: “The Right is guilty of its own kind of hypocrisy. It’s interesting how some of those who most vociferously object to government interference in our economic affairs are most desirous of government interference in our personal lives.”
Nobody Says: Okay. What Republican politicians actually said, that if elected, they would repeal the right to abortion? Romney said he would leave it up to the states I believe. That’s a far cry from some kind of draconian law of control. But I suppose you think passing a law that says we ALL have to pay for that single girl’s abortion is a very good idea. So far, I did not hear Paul Ryan or Romney say they were going to limit abortions. State some names on this sir…help me out.
You said: “Republicans will be the nanny for our private lives.”
Nobody Says: HUH? Like I said, WHERE did you get this from? Obama will soon sign the Agenda 21 which will give the United Nations a right over YOUR child. You lose all parental rights. That’s about as private as you can get. Come on…fess up. James Carvel is your second cousin…right?
You said; “Republicans have been losing the women’s vote for years and it is only going to get worse if we don’t take the social issues off the table and put them back where they belong, at home.”
Nobody Says: The only people who put social issues on the table this past election was the Democrats. They were the ones who used the mantra force of those “evil” pro-lifers, and the young single women were stupid enough to buy it. Once again… are you from MSNBC? What did I miss here?
You said: “The young vastly favor gay marriage. If you don’t think it’s going to be a fait accompli in the Western world in 25 years , you’re living in a cloud cuckoo land.”
Nobody Says: Yes, you support gay marriage. You have a RIGHT to support it, but not a right to force everyone else to . Ever wonder why? Because for the past 10 years, the American people have been hit daily with propaganda about “gay rights” and if they are Christians and don’t like it, they are labeled as EVIL.
So, you think because the left’s brainwashing has finally gotten the young people to accept it, every person who is against gay marriage, should just accept it too. After all,….the vote is in.
I guess you accept Obama’s death panels too?
You also say—“Marriage should be outside the government”
Nobody Says: Well…I agree…then the gays could get civil marriages. Why not? Let them pay big taxes too. And hey, there are states now where they can go get married, right?
BUT…gay have rights already…so why in the name of “gay” should Christians Churches should be FORCED to perform gay marriages by law? Or pay for abortions by force of law? And it’s the will of Obama to force everyone to bend to his private views.
If that’s not against liberty, than I don’t know what is. You’re a libertarian, right? What part of ‘liberty’ do you uphold? The L and the E?
The world has changed, and you are basically saying: Admit defeat….your conservative social morals are old and outdated and the women have arrived. Sacrifice your principle, for the good of my pocketbook.
Nobody Thinks that’s exactly why we will all be slaves. It’s in the communist plan (that all the leftist loonies use) to get rid of religion, AND the family…and then the state can control everything.
But..libertarians haven’t figured that out yet. Not that I stand for any party. ( I remain Independent.)
You letter makes sense, from a liberal point of view…You present it as pragmatic ( the young all accept homosexuals so that makes it democratically right) and women will have abortions forever ( so accept it as a fact) but what you do NOT accept, is the liberty of religious people to have their own views on the matter.
And in that respect, you might want to check..I think you might be a closet democrat.
So…let me get this straight: The nation is now filled with fatherless children, and women who can’t afford too many kids, so abortions needs to stay legal, and conservatives should just get off the “social” subject, admit defeat, and get to fixing the economy, even though the taxpayers will be PAYING for all these women and children food and housing, etc, AND abortions and contraception’s on top of it?
And if we did, Republicans would start winning?
I want what you’re drinking, Mr. Simon….I think they call it a Libertarian Zombie..
Am I right? Or…are do you live in Colorado?
Obama PROMISED to save the middle class. All the unions voted for him. While this video is very sad, because these people were stupid enought to think that if they voted for Obama they’d never lose their jobs, you can’t help but feel hopeless about the fact that too many people are just like them. What’s even MORE amazing is they don’t blame Obama for the sudden loss of their jobs…because he PROMISED to save them! They blame Rahm Emanuel.
Go figure. He was, and still is…Obama’s mentor and right hand man. He ran Obama’s Presidential campaign right out of Chicago.
Notice how shocked these people are? Nobody Thinks this is just the beginning. These SEIU people are not rioting…yet. Just wait till the teachers start getting cuts in pay.
Is it any wonder that the rest of us are stocking up on guns?
Aren’t you GLAD you don’t live in Chicago? And tell me…when did doing janitorial work become any harder than running your own business, or working as a mechanic? The music alone is maudlin enough to want you to go to Chicago ad leave a few “tips about socialism” in the bathroom tip jar.
Good Lord. Less money will be going to Mexico. What’s the world coming too?
I must admit. I didn’t want to see Spielberg’s version of Lincoln. As you know, I am tired of rehashing the Civil War through the narrow lens of the horror of slavery….which WAS horrible, but so often nowadays the history is being repeated relentlessly to evoke guilt and submission from the ancestors of those people who used slaves as cheap labor, and how a generation of white people, who did NONE of those crimes, are being brainwashed to believe that they are still responsible for the horrors of their ancestors.
Politicians have used that guilt market simply to get votes and power. Not that prejudice doesn’t exist, it does…but now it’s double.
I was talking to my friend Mona the other day, and we were both complaining. She was telling me about how she was left standing—at a meat counter. There were two heavy set black older women behind the counter, and one skinny young white women. When she spoke to the black woman to place an order, they looked down, and ignored her. I find this too happening to me. They are SUPPOSE to be friendly to you , the customer, take your order— but too many black people do not even look at your, OR talk to you..and you know they are thinking “Why are you here..go away. I don’t like white people. I don’t have to serve you. “
The white young girls came up to Mona…and said, “Have you been helped?”
“I thought I was…but we’re still waiting.”
A black person reading this might be thinking: Well, all white people hate black people so you deserve to be ignored
Did Obama’s reelection make any difference in the prejudices of both races? NOPE.
But back to the movie…it’s mostly about the fact that it was the Republican Party that worked so very hard to free the slaves, against the Democrats. That point was repeated throughout. Daniel Day Lewis almost becomes Lincoln. Sally Fields, is perfect as his wife, and Tommy Lee Jones, as you’ve heard, portrays a fireball of a Congressmen.
It also shows the corruption that politicians use to get their way. Lincoln had to bribe members of Congress with positions and money, to get enough votes to pass the 13th amendment. And while the movie makes no judgment on the rights of Presidents to bribe with money and power, in Lincoln’s case you tend to forgive the man because his case was so righteous.
My main thought after the movie, as everyone was talking about how good it was, was the sheer irony. Now, our first black President has worked to put us all back in chains. His cause is not one of liberty, but of taking a “republic ” and making it a dictatorship. He thinks HIS cause of redistributing wealth is the right one.
But, it’s not the cause of liberty, it’s the cause of so many other communists that have enslaved a people before him.
How ironic, that the first black man in history to lead the American nation, a nation who so many thousands had died for to free the black man from bondage, is going to lead the whole nation ..right back into it.
I wonder, what Lincoln would say about that.
If you have to make a choice between Denzel Washington and Lincoln, Nobody Suggests you see Lincoln. Do you really need to see another dark movie about an alcoholic?
Lincoln was worth the money. But better take a dictionary, back then, our congressmen were actually educated.
