Liberalism Or Children’s Thinking Part II

19 01 2009

Back by popular demand, a follow-up to a previous post!

Are 10yr old kids as wise as Ivy League professors and New York Times writers or is it the other way around?

Once again from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, proof that you can’t tell where liberalism starts:

The following were written by fifth-graders at Pittsburgh Liberty.

Dear President-elect Barack Obama,

I just want to give you advice on what you should do for America. What you should do is to try to find a way to stop the war in Iraq. Many people from America that got who were sent to Iraq are dying, and most of their loved ones start to cry, and I hate to see people cry from that. But the good thing is that the people who went to war want to fight for our country. So, Barack Obama, if you do it, it may protect people and our country and it will give America good peace.

Sincerely,
Elexa Hanner

Dear President-elect Barack Obama,

Something you can do to help our country is do more recycling. You could put more recycling bins everywhere. We can still have garbage cans but not as many. California and other states that do recycling do way more recycling than Pennsylvania does. I hope when you read this, President-elect Barack Obama, you will do it. Also, do other things to help the environment and the country. Thank you.

Madison Novak

Dear President-elect Barack Obama,

Have you ever been out and said, “What is that smell?” It could be cigarettes. That is second-hand smoking. I think that smoking should be against the law. Here is what might happen if smoking was illegal.

The positives of no smoking are: You will be healthy, you will live longer, you will look better and there will be cleaner air. The negatives are: It is hard to quit and you can’t get the tar out.

There should be no smoking because it is bad for kids and there is not much we can do but a lot you can do.

Sincerely,
Brianna Watson

*Little Brianna might know, Obama is powerless over cigarette addiction, if the media had told her parents.

Dear President-elect Barack Obama,

When you become president, I think you should push to help the environment and push to lower health-care costs. If you push to help the environment then the world be a nicer place for everybody. It would be good to stop global warming or slow it down a lot.

You should give money to science groups that are trying to discover ways to stop global warming. You should encourage people to plant a tree or other plants on Arbor Day. You should reinforce the law that companies can’t drop their chemical waste into the ocean. The animals that live in the ocean will live longer.

I think you should push to lower health- care costs because everybody needs health care to live. People won’t become bankrupt because they paid their medical bill. People won’t be afraid to go to the doctor’s office because they are saving their money for something they think is more important.

Zachary Lardas, age 10

Dear President-elect Barack Obama,

I am so happy you won the election. You are going to be a great president. The way you could help our country is by ending the war because citizens are getting killed and not having enough time to spend with friends, family, and to have fun.

You could also make the gas prices lower. U.S. citizens are not going to pay for the gas because they won’t have enough money. When they can’t afford gas, they won’t be able to visit different locations. But if they want to visit by plane, or train, both will be crowded, and planes cost a lot of money, too. Anyway, hope you have a great time in the White House.

Sincerely,
Peyton Skinker, age 11

Dear President-elect Barack Obama,

The changes I would like to see once President Barack Obama takes office are changes in health care, where everyone would be covered by a good health plan. Next would be the economy, where companies would be able to create more jobs, making goods affordable for everyone. I would also like to see Mr. Obama end the war in Iraq and bring the troops home.

The money that is spent on the war can be used in our economy by making loans to businesses and homeowners. We could drill for our own oil instead of buying from foreign countries.

Chaz C. Charles, age 10

Dear President-elect Barack Obama,

To be a great president and change the world, you should spend more of your time on gas prices, recycling, our world, homes and apartments for homeless people, and taxes.

First, you can lower gas prices because our parents are already paying water bills, cable bills, and electricity bills. I think everyone has noticed prices going down, but prices should be near $1.45 a gallon. The gas stations seem to get more money back when they lower their prices because more people come.

Secondly, when the recycling trucks come and the workers take the recyclables, it should go to the economy and some of the workers should take it to one of the shops where they give you money in return for the recyclables. This way, you help the Earth and you get money.

Third, you should help the Earth on more days than its birthday. You should have one day every month that you do something like plant a tree, water gardens in your community, pull weeds, harvest food and give it to homeless people.

Speaking of homeless people, they need a center where they can sleep, eat, communicate and get a good education. If you were a homeless person who sleeps at a bus stop, you would be cold, hungry and afraid. At the center there should be a doctor who gives checkups.

These are tips that can help you become a great president. I think you will be a good president because of what you said during the election against Hillary Clinton and John McCain. Everything you said then counts as a promise.

From your No. 1 fan,
John Karl Council, age 10

Dear President-elect Barack Obama,

My name is Eddie Hanif Bey, and I am a fifth-grade student at Liberty Elementary School. My middle name means true believer. And I believe in you. I just turned 11 on Nov. 21. I was so excited when the teacher told me about this wonderful opportunity to tell you about myself and to ask you some questions about how you will help rebuild our country even though I know you will be a great president.

I was born in Pittsburgh and am the youngest of five children. I have four sisters and I am the only boy; I guess you know how that feels. My parents have put my first two sisters through college and my third sister is at Edinboro University in Pennsylvania. My fourth sister is in high school, where my mom works. I run track and like to compete. I am sure you know about competition, even though you and McCain weren’t even close.

I watch the news and really like your first commitment to our country. I look forward to hearing from you, maybe with the Lord’s blessings. I think you have completed a great accomplishment, being our first president of color.

I really think that you can change this country for the best. You will be the best president of our time, so take your time and make things right because you have eight years.

I don’t have a dog, but I would like to, so tell Sasha and Malia not to tease. My dad is a great role model for me, and you put the icing on the cake.

P.S. See you in the White House.

Sincerely yours,
Eddie Hanif Bey, age 11

Dear President-elect Barack Obama:

Congratulations on becoming the president!

In my opinion, to help our country, we should do more reusing and recycling of products instead of always buying new things. When we reuse and recycle, someone could find another valuable use for the product.

When you get your daughters their dog, you should adopt it from a shelter. That gives a dog a second chance and a new life. The dog wouldn’t just have a nice home but lots of care from a family. It could also help to inspire other people in our country to adopt a dog from a shelter. Also, please get your dog spayed or neutered.

We should do more to protect our environment from damage to air, water and land. We shouldn’t throw any fuels or trash in the water. If someone does damage to the environment, they should help clean it up.

And could we please just worry about our own country? We should end the war and stop violence. We should promote peace and give peace a chance. If we do these things, we could have a better country.

Thank you for reading my letter.

P.S. My cousin, Kiely. would like to be the nanny for your daughters.

Dear President-elect Barack Obama:

Global warming is a huge problem. But there are ways you could prevent it. One way is to make electric cars more available because they don’t use much gasoline. If they are more available than cars that need more gasoline, then that might help stop global warming. Another way that might help prevent global warming is not using cars at all. You could encourage people to use bicycles or walk instead.

Another problem is pollution, which is one of the causes of global warming. There are also ways to prevent pollution. One way is to put more garbage cans around cities, neighborhoods and other places where there are lots of people. This way people won’t put their garbage on the ground. You should make a law that everyone should have to recycle or they will be punished. I hope you will consider my ideas.

“Brilliant Constitutionalists” Say This Stuff All The Time

19 01 2009

The other day, the soon-to-be, Ego-In-Chief called for a, “new Declaration of Independence.” Obama is seemingly gleeful at the economic crisis and the opportunity it presents for bigger government, huge expenditures and a grand opportunity for his legacy.

Side note: Maybe I sound like liberals who say Bush relished 9/11 because he could then bludgeon every Muslim nation…heck, maybe Bush did enjoy it.  Then again, don’t we all remember Bush at the kindergarten when he learned of the 9/11 attacks, something the empathetic left has never let him live down.  That was not the look of happiness.  But I’m open to the idea that he had a bone to pick with Hussein (Saddam)…are liberals open to the idea that Obama is ecstatic over the current economic storm?

Later in his speech, Obama gave us another hint of the contempt he has for the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence saying, “documents that (are) imperfect but had within them, like our nation itself, the capacity to be made more perfect.”

This reminds us of the audio tapes that emerged from the Constitutional law professor lecturer in the final days of the 2008 election.  The corporate media didn’t dare redistribute the word because the lunacy in them could have doomed his campaign and killed their dream.

In them, Obama, even without a Russian accent, bemoans:

The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radicalIt didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as its been interpreted and Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf, and that hasn’t shifted and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court focused I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change.

If nothing else, this type of information proves that we still don’t know anything about Barack Obama because the media, so integral to a free Democracy, has completely failed us.

Geez, I wonder if Saul Alinsky, Rev. Wright, Bill Ayers and Castro agree with Obama about the imperfect founding documents.





Bush Saved 10 Million African Lives That Liberals Pretend To Care About

17 01 2009

From (CNN), evidence that liberals are blinded-by-anger, hateful, delusional, people:

A legacy of President George W. Bush will be that he saved 10 million lives around the world.

His critics ignore it, but name another president about whom one can say that with such certainty. It is what historians will say a decade from now looking back. Not bad for a president who leaves office with the lowest approval rating in recent memory.

The bottom line is: George Bush is a healer.

No president in history had made such a commitment against a single disease. Those words and the action that followed meant that instead of another 30 million people dying from HIV infections, maybe just another 20 million will.

But even I — who as physician in Africa had witnessed how this virus was hollowing out societies — did not predict the huge global impact this Bush commitment would have on generations to come.

In my annual medical mission trips to Africa during the Bush administration, I saw the cost of treatment for HIV with life-saving antiretrovirals (ARVs) drop from $4,000 a year to $125. The number of Africans on ARVs jumped from 50,000 to 2.1 million.

Our visits with villagers all over the country opened our eyes to how Bush’s five-year, $1.2 billion effort to combat malaria has provided 4 million insecticide-treated bed nets and 7 million life-saving drug therapies to vulnerable people. Yes, George Bush the healer.

Future historians will also note what today’s pundits ignore: total US government development aid to Africa quadrupled from $1.3 billion in 2001 to more than $5 billion in 2008. What’s more, the Bush administration doubled foreign aid worldwide over the past eight years. You have to go back to the Truman years to match that.

And the president revolutionized the way we give aid with the creation of the Millennium Challenge Corporation, now active in 35 countries. This $6.7 billion public-private partnership for the first time ties aid to accountability based on a country’s governing well, fighting corruption and commitment to economic freedoms.

Secondly, Bush healed abroad, but he also healed right here at home.

Before Bush acted, the nation’s 43 million seniors did not have affordable access to prescription drugs (the most powerful tool a doctor has to prevent and treat disease) through the Medicare program. Today, because of George Bush, they do.

Initially, conservatives howled because the prescription drug initiative “cost too much.” Liberals hated it because it involved the markets and competition. But today, 23 million seniors live healthier lives, Medicare drug spending has been 20 percent to 30 percent less than predicted for each of the past two years and seniors overwhelmingly give the program enthusiastic reviews.

And, in addition, the program is highly redistributive — giving advantages the poorest, introducing preventive care to Medicare, encouraging electronic prescribing and introducing chronic disease management. Who says Republicans can’t lead on heath reform?

Check out the rest.  Haters.





Liberal Fascists Demand You Clean Your Plate. Just Don’t Get Fat. Obesity Tax Looms.

16 01 2009

From UK’s “Telegraph:”

“Don’t throw away leftovers, warn “food police.”

Householders are to be visited by officials offering advice on cooking with leftovers in a government initiative to reduce the amount of food that gets thrown away.  Home cooks will also be told what size portions to prepare, taught to understand “best before” dates and urged to make more use of their freezers.  The door-to-door campaign, which starts tomorrow, will be funded by the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP), a Government agency charged with reducing household waste.

The officials will be called “food champions“. However, they were dismissed as “food police” by critics who called the scheme an example of “excessive government nannying”.

One of the great feats of the Left has been their ability to associate Nazism and fascism with the Right.





Democracy In Action

12 01 2009

I was a good American today, well now it’s yesterday but still…I was good. Got my, “right to assemble” on for realz, though I must say some of my compatriots nearly violated the, “peaceful” contingent which merits the right.   And then I capped it off with some freedom of religion, freedom of speech and now I’m exhibiting a little freedom of the press…or something of the sort.

Unfortunately, much of the democracy I saw today yesterday was of the twisted sort that elected a terrorist, genocidal regime.

I went down to the Minneapolis J.C.C. to attend a rally for Israel, something I’ve never really done.  I have a lot of happy memories of that place from my teen years when I was involved with Jewish youth group leadership.

There was a good chance a few family members might be there too.  Now, explaining their support for Israel is a very tricky thing because they have to keep goose-stepping the liberal line.  But I am related to a few outgoing/activist-types and this wasn’t a march through downtown, uptown or dinkytown.  It was a poorly publicized, rally at a local Jewish community center, in the heart of the suburb of St. Louis Park, a city which is so well known for being a Jewish part of town, it’s called St. Jewish Park.

As a Jew who supports Israel and doesn’t have to twist my brain into pretzels to explain her rights while hating the most pro-Israel President ever, I knew I had to go.  The Jews I know who say they love Israel, still reflexively rely on moral relativism on all issues and strict adherence to their religion, Liberalism.  This religious devotion, or passion, must be preserved all at times, usually coming out in the form of:

I love Israel, BUT…

  • “It’s the poverty of Gaza that makes them hate life and love death”
  • “It’s dire and hopeless so they blow up at dance clubs”
  • “US aid to Israel is much higher, they have tanks and Palestinians have stones. “
  • “If America gave Palestine more equally, it would be better”
  • “Israel has been disproportionate aka, not numerically egalitarian, in their response”
  • “Palestinians living in desperate conditions aren’t all extremists, but what would you do?”
  • “Violence begets violence.  Israel has been extremely tough on them, and makes more terrorists when someone’s house is bombed”

Turns out, it’s a good thing my relatives didn’t infuse themselves in the realm of the Palestinians at this protest.  It could seriously have unraveled their whole psyches.

At this point, I’m going to, um interrupt…myself, and apologize for not bringing my camera, it’s totally unacceptable.  I just foolishly didn’t foresee the opposition.

It must be interesting from the Palestinian’s perspective to see Jews quietly and meekly filing into a building when they’ve built them up to be maniacal war criminals.  I was one of a few, if not the only, pro-Israel person who went anywhere near them.  It’s nerve-racking to consider what their mood might have been if a few more people had engaged them.  They were already chanting racist slurs and calling for genocide while ironically claiming the same is being done to them.  When Jews came and went, it was quiet and quick.  Eyes were diverted.  A few flashed peace signs.  Basically they said, “PLEASE DON’T F#(%*** HURT US.”

Jews are smart people.

Palestinians who had flooded the JCC’s parking lot, left to horns blaring, loud chanting, flag waiving and overall, warm toastiness.

Important:

How dare these people invoke the words, “holocaust” and “genocide?”

For goodness sakes, the UN doesn’t think Darfur is genocide.  And really, mustn’t one be an anti-Semite even if subconsciously, for rubbing German associations in Jews’ faces?  I mean come on!  It’s like so not even proportionate!

Lastly, and to disprove the viablity of those choice words…

While mingling at the get-together, I confirmed with several Palestinians (even some of the ones who chanted “kill all the Jews”) that Israel is:

  • A terror state
  • a vicious military power
  • capable of destroying the whole region with bombs
  • a racist nation against Arabs and Muslims
  • gleeful at the sight of dead Palestinian children
  • a rogue nation who does not care what the world thinks
  • willing to break International law and even uses nuclear bombs to attack Palestinians

Ok, so if Israel is those things, then why didn’t any partakers in liberty have an answer for me when I asked why there was a single living soul left in Gaza if Israelis are such genocidal murderers.

Some of them even told me how long they think it might take if Israel were to completely annihilate Palestinian territories.

About 4 minutes.

Right.

This is no genocide.

This is no holocaust.

Israel obviously tries to minimize civilian casualties at all expenses.

Palestinians and Muslim fighters the world over, try to maximize them.

whosdead

On the way out, a few “human rights” protesters told me, “it’s coming.”

I wish I could have said, “we’re ready.”





If G-d Didn’t Want Us To Eat Animals, Why Are They Made Out Of Meat?

9 01 2009

PETA wants to call fish, “sea kittens,” in hopes that children will stop eating all that seafood that they’re so famous for loving.

The website, which you must check out, asks, “Would people think twice about ordering fish sticks if they were called sea kitten sticks?”

Malkin has some hilarious readers who posit a few other changes to our diet.

My fellow sea kitten-eaters at Twitter share their new names for other favorite foods:

Pasture puppies: Steak.

Yard birdie parmesan: Chicken parmesan.

Tuna sea kitties. Tuna fish.

And another snort-worthy euphemism:

“Maybe we should rename rats tube puppies. Think how much nicer the NYC subways would be!”

I forget, is PETA liberal or conservative?

sea-kittens2

MENTAL DISORDER!

UPDATE: Colbert killed me when he joked that, “now that fish are called sea kittens, he’s really looking forward to devouring some delicious land fish.”

Martyred Hamas Bunny To F*** Like A Rabbit In Jihad Heaven.

6 01 2009

jihadbunny1

Hamas reported today that one of their best brainwashing tools has been injured by an Israeli bomb.  The adorable creature hopped on the scene a few years back when he ate Jews on daytime Palestinian TV.

So much for Cookie Monster and The Count huh?

Now, as a Muslim martyr, he’ll be treated to 72 virgin bunnies for eternity.

I mean, how ridiculous is that!

What’s he gonna do with virgin rabbits in the hereafter that he couldn’t have done with the much acclaimed, super-slut bunnies of today?

Ugh! Isn’t that just like the Jooooos to kill a rabbit so he has to get action from a bunch of inexperienced, prude females bunnies!

Of course, this type of profound sickness will never be found in corporate media.  For that would show the savage Palestinians for what they are.
