WORDS OF WISDOM

Sunday, March 22nd 2009, 4:00 AM

Rarely do we hear a message of sacrifice, unless it is used as a justification of taxation of others or a transfer of wealth to others. Today the message seems to be, ‘Ask not what you can do for yourselves and your country, but what your country must do for you.’ 

— Justice Clarence Thomas, speaking at Washington & Lee University

“Don’t let his effeminate nature and ballerina past mislead you. Rahm Emanuel has the feral instincts of a female rat defending its young.”  Rush Limbaugh

In McCain’s mind, however, losing the presidency will not be the final chapter of his life story. He knows the path to “Big Media” redemptionmay08_inq_santorum11. Working with the man who vanquished him in November will show them all the real McCain again.
In less than a week Barack Obama will be sworn into office and Democrats will need to stop defining themselves by their opposition to George W. Bush and start arguing in favor of serious policies for keeping this country safe. For all the self-righteous talk about constitutional protections and international law and due process, the current consensus on the left would have Obama free Qahtani and prosecute Bush. If that’s the outcome dictated by a principled liberalism, then liberalism won’t be ascendant for very long.
(Wise words, indeed, from Michael Goldfarb.)

You can try and be popular. In certain corridors in Europe you can be popular by blaming every Middle Eastern problem on Israel. Or you can be popular by joining the International Criminal Court. I guess I could of been popular by accepting Kyoto which I felt was a flawed treaty and proposed something different and more constructive. In terms of the decisions I have made to protect the homeland I wouldn’t worry about popularity. What I would worry about is the constitution of the United States and putting plans in place that make it easier to find out what the enemy is thinking; ’cause all these debates will matter not if there is another attack on the homeland. The question won’t be, “Were you critical of this plan?” The question will be, “Why didn’t you do something?” Do you remember what it was like right after Sept the 11th around here? In press conferences and opinion pieces, news stories that were sometimes news stories and sometimes opinion pieces, people were saying, “How come they didn’t see it? How come they didn’t connect the dots?” Do you remember what the environment was like in Washington? I do; when people were hauled up in front of congress and members of congress were asking questions about how come you didn’t know this, that or the other?  And then we start putting policy in place, legal policy in place, to connect the dots and then all of a sudden people were saying “How come you’re connecting the dots?” So you know, Mike, I’ve heard all that. My view is that, that most people around the world respect America and some of them don’t  like me. I understand that, writers and the opiners and all that, but that’s part of the deal. But I’m more concerned about the country and how people view the United States of America. They view it as a strong compassionate people who care strongly about the universality of freedom.”

SMITH: You don’t think as an African-American, that he (Barry Soetoro) was at some greater risk?

COULTER: No, I do not. Because every presidential assassin — or attempted presidential assassin in the history of the nation has either been a liberal, a communist, an anarchist, someone on the left, or there were two who had no politics whatsoever unless you count John Hinckley, who is certifiably insane. So, you know, we have-

SMITH: Which goes back — which goes back to — to your basic point that everything that’s wrong with America is the left’s fault.

COULTER: No, I have — I wouldn’t have mentioned that all these presidential assassins were anarchists, communists, liberals, they were some form of, you know, basically Obama’s base, other than the fact that everyone keeps talking about Obama being at some unique risk. Well, I’m sorry, Sean Hannity’s at greater risk. Rush Limbaugh’s at greater risk. I promise you George Bush is at greater risk. He has been physically attacked two weeks ago. There’s a book fantasizing about George Bush’s assassination. There’s a movie — a documentary fantasizing about George Bush’s assassination. And there are more hits on going Google for Obama and assassination than Bush and assassination. So maybe we can stop talking about the threat of right-wing violence in a country that is teeming with left-wing violence.

First of all, let me sank Gawd for this decision by Guvuhnuh Glaboyavich.

I ats you not to hang or lynch the appointEE. Separate the appointEE from the appointOR.  Rep. Bobby Rush (D-1st-IL), Founder of Illinois Chapter, Black Panther Party.

“The American people did not elect Obama over the white Anglo Saxon because of their moral, religious or social principles. To the contrary, they elected the president who will best serve their top priority; to maintain their comfortable lifestyle. Mighty America, with its endless resources, could not find a better candidate presidency, other than the following three people: the first is an elderly military political nominee. With all its size and power, the Republican Party could not find a better candidate! The second is a well-known female politician. The legacy of Clinton’s husband is well-known, some of which is encouraging and other aspects of which are humiliating…America has never had a female and it would never have one during these difficult times. The third is a black man with African and Islamic roots who has no political experience. Where are all the competent, inspiring and experienced candidates?”   Dr. Ali al-Nuaimi, media spokesman, Islamic Army in Iraq (IAI)

Another side effect has been white people contacting me to say that I should be proud to see a black man become president. Could there be a comment that is more condescending, more insulting, than that? If I believed that in America a black man could not be president, then I would be proud to see any black man elected president. But because I always have believed that nothing in America prevents a black man from becoming president or anything else he wants to be, I can be embarrassed, not proud, to see someone as unqualified and inexperienced as Obama become president.  Z.

Remember, it was this onetime prisoner of war who led the charge to open diplomatic relations with Vietnam. If that past is prologue, and McCain’s legislative record is any guide, he will not just join with Obama but lead the charge in Congress on global warming, immigration “reform,” the closing of Guantanamo, federal funding for embryonic-stem-cell research, and importation of prescription drugs.

But McCain won’t stop there in his effort to rehabilitate himself in the media’s – or maybe his own – eyes. He will forge common ground on a long list of initiatives that go far beyond where he has gone before, including the stimulus package.

It is twilight in America now. The House vote to use the tax code to retroactively punish bonus babies was an act of sheer madness. What started as phony outrage at AIG has crossed the line into insane policy. It is stunning that the vote was lopsided and bipartisan.

We should all be very afraid. Class warfare is mere predicate for a witch hunt that, once unleashed, will not stop with misbegotten wealth. It will punish success and stifle innovation. Dissent will invite dishonor.

That Congress is a gang of cheap connivers is not news. Chris Dodd, Charley Rangel, Charles Grassley, Barney Frank – they have been national embarrassments for years.

But now they are dangerous, emboldened by public fear and anger. They know nothing, but have power and smell opportunity for more.

Missing in action is the Barack Obama who vowed to unite the country around common values. Lately he has been the very opposite of the man he promised. Instead of hope, many have a growing fear of the arrogant government he leads.

In truth, there is no history for what he is doing. He is the most radical President of our times, far outside the mainstream of our political philosophy.

He is not a reformer who fixes things. He fancies himself “transformative,” a man who reshapes and reorders. It apparently begins with smashing the existing order under the pretext of managing the crisis he inherited.

During the campaign, a fellow journalist confided that “I know Obama is a Manchurian candidate, I just can’t figure out what for.”

I laughed then, but no more. Obama represents a secular religion that believes, no matter the malady, Washington is the antidote. More government is the chicken soup of his tribe.

It is an illusion of many Republicans and Democrats that Washington can successfully manage the economy and our lives. Our institutions and culture are too big, too diverse and too unruly to be run like a banana republic.

Yet the economic mess has robbed the nation of its confidence, and the vacuum is being filled by politicians bearing promises and borrowed dollars. The true cost of this “help” will come later, with back-breaking debt and a lack of growth and opportunity.

We can’t say we haven’t been warned. “Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad” is more than folklore. It predicts our fate if we follow the government mob. http://www.nydailynews.com/opinions/columnists/goodwin/index.html
