Below is one of the best things I’ve seen in a while. Just beautiful. Like an orchid of stupidity.
Government isn’t all bad. A very small and generally limited one can make some sense. I will even go so far as to say that a very modest taxpayer supported safety net for the truly indigent is OK if for whatever reason a private net does not exist. (I think that it would generally however in a very small government world, but that is for another post.) But government is at best, at best, a necessary evil. It is never something to be celebrated, but we unfortunately have celebrated government for far too long in this country.
She called multiple times! She said that she had a fever. But because the fever wasn’t high enough according to some chart, even though she had been treating an Ebola positive patient, someone at the CDC gave her the OK TO FLY ON A PLANE!
Given that she supported renewing the Export-Import Bank of the United States, Boeing’s bank, one of the most egregious examples of crony capitalism there is, Ms. Warren also chose to support Wall Street. Additionally, her baby the Consumer Financial Financial Board is (illegally?) housed within the Federal Reserve (not subject to Congressional funding oversight) and has become a lobbyist mill already.
This is the head of the FBI saying this. On 60 Minutes.It’s about as close to a flat out warning as he could give the American people.
First, what is called “Right ” and “Left” is increasingly up for grabs. The winged political paradigm makes much less sense now that a significant part of the population self identifies as “libertarian,” which does not fit into the 20th Century way of looking at politics.
Saying this however we’ll go forward.
The question is whether those who advocate ever larger government have to get people “hooked” on welfare of one sort or another in order to win elections. Whether creating dependence on government is in itself a political strategy.
“There is no way we can keep Ebola in West Africa…If Ebola breaks out in Haiti or Central America…mass migration of Central Americans into the United States.”
If it does it will kill a major tool for upward mobility in America. And all to satisfy a narrow band of labor activists.
And that’s about right.
This poll was taken before the Ebola situation in Dallas emerged.
