This is pathetic. I hope Sean grows up. He’s probably led a very sheltered life within the Progressivesphere). He certainly does look like his father.

Bill Whittle, of “Eat The Rich” fame, offers some great examples of reality vs. theory.
One of the things that separates how Liberal/Progressives think and how Conservatives think is how the world should be vs. how the world is.

An excellent article written by Michael Barone compares some of the distant past’s “beliefs” with today’s leftist religion. Click here.
The last two paragraphs:
In recent years, we have seen how negative to 2 percent growth hurts many, many people, as compared to what happens with 3 to 7 percent growth. So we’re much less willing to adopt policies that will slow down growth not just for a few years but for the indefinite future.
Media, university and corporate elites still profess belief in global warming alarmism, but moves toward policies limiting carbon emissions have fizzled out, here and abroad.

Public policy plays an important role here — one that’s especially relevant as state governments seek to cut spending and reduce the power of the public employee unions that seek to raise spending and prevent accountability.
The lesson is that high taxes and strong public employee unions tend to stifle growth and produce a two-tier society like coastal California’s.
The eight states with no state income tax grew 18 percent in the last decade. The other states (including the District of Columbia) grew just 8 percent.
The 22 states with right-to-work laws grew 15 percent in the last decade. The other states grew just 6 percent.
The 16 states where collective bargaining with public employees is not required grew 15 percent in the last decade. The other states grew 7 percent.
President Obama (via Mark Steyn):
That’s why building this international coalition has been so important. It is our military that is being volunteered by others to carry out missions that are important not only to us, but are important internationally.
Over the years, our current President has demonstrated an adherence to three important philosophical schools of thought. For one, he would clearly appear to be a proponent of economic collectivism, the assumption that the overall economic wellbeing of everybody – “the group,” if you will – is more important than the economic rights and liberties of the individual.
The free market is the most powerful engine of human prosperity in the history of mankind and today’s Democrats stand desperately in its way to appease those who are enriched by big government at the expense of everyone else.
You will not be surprised to hear that the events in Japan have changed my view of nuclear power. You will be surprised to hear how they have changed it. As a result of the disaster at Fukushima, I am no longer nuclear- neutral. I now support the technology.
A crappy old plant with inadequate safety features was hit by a monster earthquake and a vast tsunami. The electricity supply failed, knocking out the cooling system. The reactors began to explode and melt down. The disaster exposed a familiar legacy of poor design and corner-cutting. Yet, as far as we know, no one has yet received a lethal dose of radiation.
For two years now, I have been arguing . . . that President Obama’s economic policies were a throwback to the 1970s, and so were going to produce the same result as the 1970s—the worsening cycles of inflation and recession known as stagflation. With last week’s reports regarding the Producer Price Index and the Consumer Price Index, those results are now here.
This follows a long-term trend that has been flashing red for inflation for quite some time now. First gold started to rise, eventually to record highs. Then the dollar started to fall, now near record lows. Then commodity prices started to soar, with oil now zooming over $100 a barrel.

Climategate ‘hide the decline’ explained by Berkeley professor Richard A. Muller, a scientist who does believe that CO2 causes global warming.
Sen. Rand Paul on Consumer Choice:
It is so refreshing to hear the very few politicians that will speak plainly.
An eco-maniacal opera, inspired by Elmer Fudd with music by Richard Wagner. Any resemblance to the classic “What’s Opera Doc” with Bugs Bunny is entirely intentional. The incandescent light bulb is, in fact, scheduled to become unavailable in the US at the end of 2011. Ride of the Valkyries and the Tannhauser chorus have been desecrated before, but this brings the offense to a new level, at least I hope so.
Audi 2010 Green Car ad from last year’s Superbowl. They probably meant this as a gag. I don’t think it’s funny at all. This is where we’re all headed if we don’t slow down the regulatory steamroller.
