As we have said in the past MSNBC is what modern propaganda looks like. Media Matters issues talking points (often with the input of the Obama White House) and MSNBC spits them back out. (To a smaller and smaller audience it should be added.)
We at ACC are for capitalism because it is a liberating force. It makes lives better. It provides opportunity. It offers escape from despair.
Obamacare, more than anything is a big giveaway to the health insurance industry. It’s a crony capitalist scheme to its core and more people (and entire states) are coming to realize this.
The Obama administration thought it could buy off industry and it did. But industry did not anticipate how incompetent this administration was. It bought the show and dazzle.
This is the king of smart conservative journalism we are talking about here. This is William F. Buckley’s baby. Cold Warrior intellectual super journal. Better dead than Red. THE force behind conservatism for 3 decades. Reagan, Thatcher, the whole bit. And things have gotten so bad that the National Review is saying the CIA and NSA and the DIA, and who knows how many other spook agencies, need to be reined in.
“(The Tea Party) ought to go after every incumbent Republican who voted for this abomination.”
With an administration reeling from its failed Obamacare launch, the president has brought in outside insider help. John Podesta, former Clinton Chief of Staff and lobbyist for BP and Walmart, will focus on how to use executive orders to legislate from the executive branch. (This is of course in violation of the separation of powers in the Constitution and a clear threat to America but Politico makes no mention of this.)
These guys never stop. I respect that about JP (in the way that I respect the Empire in Star Wars) and there is something to be said for an idea so disruptive that it attracts the sharks at JP.
Solar power is good. In fact I grew up with water heated by solar panels installed by my electrical engineer dad. It worked great and that was in the mid 1980s. I have probably taken more energy off the grid than most people in America have. (Or more precisely my dad did.)
You know what isn’t good? Solar subsidies targeted at achieving unattainable goals but which will fatten the pockets of the politically favored.
The battle for the heart of the GOP is on. The establishment Republican Party is not concerned with liberty, it is concerned with power. As freedom and dignity ebb away, day by day, month by month, for the average person, the GOP leadership cruises along muttering under its breath about the Tea Party. The turd in the punch bowl. The party poopers. The guys and gals who actually want to reverse the growth of government. Don’t the small government people know that there is no money in taking favors away from donors.
