Six reasons that could lead to a “cop free world” are listed. Not surprisingly, they totally ignored encouraging people to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights by being properly trained to defend themselves and others if necessary. People who can defend themselves do not always need to rely on the police, but Rolling Stone skipped that fairly large point.
Lefties are salivating over the prospect of a bill with a fittingly commie-sounding name: The “Inclusive Prosperity Act.” The bill would impose a tax on the trading of stocks, bonds and derivatives and is really, incredibly, horribly stupid. Which is why people like Rep. Keith Ellison support it as a way of funneling more money to the government:
“People like, George Soros, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Paul Krugman, Joe Stiglitz, Jeffrey Sax, Dean Baker, Robert Poland, Larry Summers have said they all support a transaction tax,” Ellison said.
“The bottom line is we’re not broke, there’s plenty of money, it’s just the government doesn’t have it,” Ellison continued, “The government has a right, the government and the people of the United States have a right to run the programs of the United States. Health, welfare, housing – all these things.”
Well, if Krugman supports it, it’s definitely a bad idea.
Capitalist-socialist hypocrites like Soros pitch this idea like it’s a “one percent” thing, but over half of Americans have money in the stock market. Just what we need, another tax on working America just because Keith Ellison and the rest of the tax and spenders need more and more to satisfy their crack-addict style addictions.
It’s just a matter of time before people like Ellison are opening calling for the government to raid savings accounts (he’ll refer to it as “involuntary FDIC premium payments” or something like that).
The other day a Code Pink regular interrupted President Obama’s national insecurity speech and POTUS talked his way through it. Michelle Obama, however, isn’t quite as patient with hecklers:
First lady Michelle Obama experienced a rare face-to-face encounter with a protester late Tuesday – approaching the activist and threatening to leave a fundraiser if the person did not stop interrupting her speech.
Obama was addressing a Democratic Party fundraiser in a private Kalorama home in Northwest Washington when Ellen Sturtz, 56, a lesbian activist, interrupted her remarks to demand that President Obama sign an anti-discrimination executive order.
Obama showed her displeasure – pausing to confront Sturtz eye to eye, according to witnesses.
“One of the things that I don’t do well is this,” she said to applause from most of the guests, according to a White House transcript. “Do you understand?”
A pool report from a reporter in the room said Obama “left the lectern and moved over to the protester.” The pool report quoted Obama as saying: “Listen to me or you can take the mic, but I’m leaving. You all decide. You have one choice.”
FLOTUS got the heckler to leave after threatening to lecture her about a healthy diet and exercise.
Funny how these well known rabble-rousing activists keep managing to slip into these events, isn’t it?
Here’s audio, though you can’t hear the part where Michelle threatened to leave:
The official White House transcript did include the heckler’s comments but did not include FLOTUS’s threat to “walk off this mother*#ker” — of course I’m paraphrasing.
Here’s how I think it all went down: The spider jumped up on the table and criticized President Obama’s response to Hurricane Sandy, causing Governor Christie to take offense and smash the partisan arachnid for blasphemy:
I honor Earth Day pretty much how I celebrate Earth Hour: By keeping my own little corner of the world as clean as I can while mocking those who are flying high above our homes in their private jets — possibly on the way to one of their 20,000 square foot vacation homes (I’m looking at you, “Mr. Climate”) — while looking down and lamenting how our cars, incandescent light bulbs and beef-rich diets for ruining the planet.
But I have to admit there’s an upside to the environmental moonbattery, for it gives us great moments like this:
And here’s our annual obligatory Earth Day video (language warning):
Before the identities of the Boston Marathon bombers were know, NPR’s Counterterrorism Correspondent Dina Temple Raston did a little speculating:
Did you know that Hitler’s birthday is “big” for the right? I for one stopped celebrating it the day the candles on the cake accidentally set ablaze the mustache on the likeness of der Führer and burned my barn down
