I love Levin but man does he get me going-I wish to God above he would run for president because there's no one on our side that is a better spokesman for our Founding and the principles that made this country great. There not a REgressive out there that wouldn't be reduced to a quivering pile of skin in a debate with him.
He himself has said many times that he feels as though he was born in the wrong time and that he would have fit right in at our Founding. Well Mark, step up dude, we need a REFounding now if there was ever a time for that. I will stop my life and work my ass off for you.
He's suggested conservatives buy 15 or 30 minutes on national TV to lay out why our ideology works and why it made our country the greatest in history-well Mark, I'm with you baby.
The Founders weep over our paralysis.
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
After this past "election" farce, I fear that we have turned a corner. In my 57 years on this planet I have never been so depressed about my country. This is not the land I grew up in. And, quite frankly, I have stopped listening to the "conservatives" as much as the socialists. The entire political landscape is rotten, filled with liars, pontificaters and con artists. Hopefully I will be dead before we just completely go red.
I am an RN. When I worked Home Care in Las Vegas I had a real eye opener. One of my medicare/champus patients lived alone and was legally blind and needed help with insulin administration and blood testing once a day. The company I worked for gave me such a hard time because they wanted her off services. Another patient was an illegal alien with family in her home, I provided the same services twice a day and no one ever questioned this person getting services under medicaid. It was an insult to the patient that had worked all her life and was the widow of a career military officer. Our tax dollars foster this type of system
Where the hell is Paul Ryan on this, the largest cultural/$$$ Debate in our history??????????.
"The Mumbling Mitt Nothing Burger", debacle ought to teach America that Ryan is the only mouth/brain/confidence/talent we have to challenge the disingenuousness of a Neo-Marxist subversive.
Obama's "Critical Theory", ethical framework admits to a use of language and debate where conscious lies as an instrument of policy has become a common-place in the moral swamps of academia since the "Boomer Flood".
Where the hell is Paul Ryan on this, the largest cultural/$$$ Debate in our contemporary history ??????????.
"The Mumbling Mitt, Nothing Burger", debacle ought to teach America that Ryan is the only mouth/brain/confidence/talent we have to challenge the dis-ingenuous, endemic product of the imported Neo-Marxist faculties into US the education product since the Sixties: K thru PHD.
Romney, was right on target in his diagnosis of of the 47% slackers; but, since he was also aware, as are many of my octogenarian ilk of the,"Pravda" conclusion,(Thanks, Drudge) that Obama was elected by an ignorant electorate: Mitt chose to bail rather than confront...that same tendency in the current lo-smarts GOP leadership is exactly the reason they're headed further into loser territory. and as Pravda recently reported
Obama's, "Alinskian", "Critical Theory", ethical framework relies on a use of language and debate where conscious lies as instruments of policy are an accepted common-place in the moral swamps of academic debate: since the,"Boomer Flood",
Note that along with his generational elder brother and sister pair, the Clintons, this strategy and behavior has survived an impeachment trial, a penchant for being,"Out of Town" when the heat's on, (Benghazi):
WE seem to have arrived to the point where a, "Br'er Rabbit" of the golden mouth", has converted the presidency and government into an itinerant process where an unending series of mega-T-Group revival sessions, replete with cheers and friendly crowds, the younger the better (see Pravda above), replace the White House and the halls of congress as the substitute venues for the national debate.
Neither House nor senate GOP leadership have the requisite grit/skills and credibility to carry the day against this political incubus: who, knows his fan-worshipers consider him their matinee idol and 99% champion.
Let's get Ryan up to the front-lines ASAP
I'm thinking that we will not see a change in the system anytime soon. Not even in our life time. These people think that the world owns them something, and their time has come for us to pay up. The Repubs are a deplorable bunch of turn coats and I'm pretty fed up with the whole scene right now!
These leaches are the only people that can be bothered to vote. This is what we get when half of the people who are eligible vote sit on their butts and the rest are to gutless to think about any other solution.
I hear everyone talking... except no real plans for civil unrest and protest against the corrupt Government of USA.
Do your best to vote a Republican majority in 2 years in both the Senate and the House.
With the threat of impeachment,or maintaining some semblance of the Republic.
AMERICANS PLEASE WAKE UP BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.
Paraphrasing Abraham Lincoln "A house divided against itself cannot stand"
Romney may not have been eloquent in his statement- in that he wasn’t clear about who he was referring to.
He needed to better define the percentage, and underscore that he wasn’t including our military and seniors.
But those of us who take responsibility for ourselves pretty much knew what who he was talking about.
Its pretty sad that most of us play by the rules and a large percentage are out to get what they can.
TRUE!!! I worked as a Pharmacy Tech for 8 1/2 years in Wisconsin. SAME THING! People would come in for their inhalation meds (inhalers, nebulizer meds) sometimes smoking cigarettes as they walked in the door, and refuse to pay their $1 co-pay! Many good people DID pay, but their was almost an equal number that didn't. They knew they didn't have to! It is a very serious problem!
My husband is a pharmacist, and he sees this crap daily. One girl had an iPhone, a Coach bag, and acrylic nails and cussed him out over a $2 co-pay!!!!! TWO DOLLARS!!!!!
He has been cussed out because they think they should get everything for free. When will this entitlement society end??
Plus, let's not even count how much we have to pay in taxes to keep this scum going with all their free crap.
A dollar?! Really?! She can't pay that, and it's "demeaning" to ask her to?! I'm with mark. I've had it with people thinking we owe them free stuff, and they live it up while people like this pharmacist works his butt off! For what?! So she can demean him and his hard work?! Ahhhhhh!!
It could be a terrible thing but I wonder what would happen if all the businesses in this country would just shut down for a week in protest of the government rules and regulations? This would include all the restaurants, stores, trucking companies, banks, etc. What would happen if all the doctor offices in this country would just take a week off as a protest for all the regulations? What would happen if all the working people in this great country would take a week off an not spend ANY money for a week? You know, it's time that all the working people in this country made a revolt by saying we're done! We're tired of doing the work and everyone else getting the benefits. We're tired of the government thinking that they control how much we keep and how much we give. We need to send a message that it's our money not theirs. The time is coming that we need to make a stand and send a strong message to the people in Washington.
Moocher class... alive and well and thriving.
Producer class... hung out to dry and bleeding out.
When people get free stuff just for voting Democrat... how do you fight that? They have no morals or honor... they have no conscience. They feel they are entitled to it... that they deserve it... that it's fair.
America has already gone over more than the "fiscal" cliff. We're in a free fall now. Be prepared because it's gonna get ugly before the Lord's return.
Someone, either Rush's show or Levin's show yesterday said we had already gone over the cultural cliff, and that's exactly what this is about. The concepts of right and wrong, good and bad, be responsible and accountable, etc. have already been destroyed in America. Used to be people (including politicians) would have been run out of town on a rail for corruption and dishonesty. It was called stealing. Now, the government enables people to steal and actually promotes corruption.
No matter what anyone thinks, we are going to be forced to exercise the 2nd amendment on our fellow citizens in the near future. 47% of the country are Mao stooges that will turn on us producers at the drop of a hat. Once the government calls on its loyal parasites to do their bidding, there are going to be dead drones littering many streets in America. Sad, but a necessary blood letting, I think.
This is true! Technically, if medicaid patients don't have money, you have to give them their medications for free. You should see the arrogant patients that come into the clinic. They live like kings while wearing pajamas to medical appointments.
I heard people were worrying about losing their food benefits! Rush was right again....they voted for Santa Claus!
Just like the Russians said....Obama was elected by the Illiterate!! People that don't know their history are doomed to repeat it!!
This is what happens when government gets control. Fraud doesn't hurt them like it would a company but companies can't just go out and take people's money to make up for it. Obama is Santa Claus. According to Jaime Foxx Obama is our lord and Savior so nothing wrong here.
Its sad about Jaime Foxx, real name is Eric Bishop. I went to high school with him and he was one of the funniest people I had ever met and wouldn't have thought he would go this far down the rabbit hole. I knew he was destined to be something big....but Obama wasn't around and now he's just a big jerk.
The visual image that perfectly illustrates the 'entitlement' mindset is Black Friday, especially this year and last.
Last year, they were literally killing for Air Jordans, this year, they were fist fighting over Victoria Secret underwear and tearing up the store so that it had to close.
In between the two Black Fridays, we have seen a another women killing other women for their cell phones.
This is the face of the Entitlement Culture.
These are the people getting a free ride.
And, when Newt Gingrich mentioned the word, WORK, he was treated as though he was a terrorist. In fact, the TEA Party have been called terrorists by these people.
Liberals minds are weird - they live in an upside down, opposites world, where good is bad and vice versa.
And now that these people are in the majority, it's going to be very, very, hard to defeat them, at least on a national level. You also see the country as a whole breaking up into traditionally blue and red states. This is how civil wars start. Obama and his minions have done such a good job at polarizing this nation and creating even bigger divisions in this society, that I wouldn't be surprised if there was massive social unrest by 2016, just like there was in 1968, especially if the economy tanks again. You really will have something along the lines of the French Revolution and it will not end well. I hope Obama is happy with the results and that using class warfare to win this election was worth it, espcially when people start dying in riots.
Bottom rail on top now...for now, that is.
There's an old story attributed to Vlad the Impaler (a/k/a the real Dracula). He invited all the poor of his land to a feast. When they got to the hall, he had the doors locked, then he set the building on fire. Voila! He ended poverty in the land.
It's unbelievable how stupid American voters are. Even with the massive voter fraud, Romney should have whooped Obama.
This will drive medical service providers like this pharmacy out of business. So, where ya gonna get your Obamacare?
What a beautiful piece of art, Glen Beck made today.

but didn't you all hear? Obama is our LORD and SAVIOR according to Jamie Foxx---and the rest on the left! unfortunately people are still so duped in this country it is absolutely tragic. What an absolute waste of an opportunity we gave up with Romney. But this country is not in enough pain to realize what they have just done be re-electing Obama. I talk to so many people about going over the cliff and they laugh at me and say "no Steph, we'll be fine, we'll be fine." They are in DENIAL and can't possibly comprehend becoming like Greece b/c they don't think the debt is a big deal and they think the economy is doing great at 8% unemployment and they think raising taxes is the answer. and they think all these people mooching off of our tax dollars actually can't help themselves...I have also had it up to here! I feel like I'm talking to a brick wall with some of these people!
It will take more than pain for any of these people to change. If one wants to look at history or even at upcoming future events, the blame will be placed on the Christian and/or Jew for the problems while they shake their fist at the Creator. Instead of coming to their senses and repent, they will just get more angry and turn on those who hold to values that actually do work but requires personal responsibility.
the system is going to break, but I do wonder at how long. Cali should be off the cliff by now and so should half of Europe. What in the world is keeping them afloat and is it based on reality or some sort of ponzi scheme ready to fold like a house of cards?
Qualitative Easing is like a pile of bricks slowly building up at the bottom of a soap bubble. Not to worry, it will never break. :(
This is so true and yet, they also know that they cannot just keep printing this stuff. Then again, if all other currency is worthless, it will keep the facade that much longer.
I would rather they just erase all the debt off the books instead. It accomplishes the same thing but does get us back to reality that much faster.
Low interest rates (zero, effectively), printing money, redistribution, and a propaganda media.
The IMF for example just managed to strong arm Merkel into another bailout for Greece. Now, how could they force this? Merkel knows it will sap the strongest economy in the EU and probably ensure her defeat.
Up is down. Left is right. Black is white.
......"reality may intrude at any moment and puncture the illusion EU officials are trying to maintain that they have mastered the euro crisis. Even if the Greek bond buyback attains its goals, Athens may be unable to meet its commitments on cutting spending.
Or even as Cyprus is begging for bailout funds, Spain or Italy could encounter new crises that require immediate aid as well.
Or if the U.S. fails to resolve its fiscal cliff — subject of another urgent warning from the OECD — a new recession in this country could finish off all economic projections in Europe and make all the austerity targets moot.
A year is a long time to maintain an illusion and it’s likely that the EU wizards will have to do some more conjuring in the very near future — or finally face up to reality.
The EU 'wizards' have been kicking the can that is Greek insolvency down the road for nearly four years now.
The Greek people suffer, the Spanish people suffer, other nationalities are getting very cross indeed ... but the politicians are doing fine, and the MSM are not reporting all the facts - like, Greek shipowners not having to pay any tax, by law, since forever. Like the rich from all those countries taking their money out and buying properties at exorbitant prices in London. Like the Italians, famous for their black economy and tax evasion, sitting on more private wealth than the Germans who are made to pay for all these countries. Like people in Greece, Spain, France, Italy being able to get their old-age pension at 55/60 years of age, whereas the Germans now have to work until they're 67.
Honesty and hard work don't pay in the EU, but tax evasion, lies, black markets and general dishonesty is fine.
It will come crashing down, and then the whole world, China included, will be in the merde.
I think that is where I am struggling. I see this, read it, shake my head and still it does not make any sense.
EU has no money, we have no money, China's economy is on the brink. There is something very troubling and why can't anyone cut spending when that is the only sane direction away from the cliff.
It is all very frustrating to watch, that is for sure.
Sorry- I'm tired and my eyes can't barely see. Your questions are good ones Puritan. It'll be interesting to find out what the answer is.
