Courage and modesty are the two most unequivocal of virtues, for they are of a kind that hypocrisy cannot imitate; they too have this quality in common, that they are expressed by the same color. --Goethe

"I always ignore racial advice from Whites in our country..I never will give them any credibility on any discussion about Black people..Never" You are quite in agreement with your masters, and mine. No criticism from the broader culture is allowed, going on fifty years. And that is working out for you, how? If blacks truly gave no credibility to the Cathedral they would not be so thoroughly penned in by it's limits. What Cobb said. The vast quantity of commentary which I read is without value, or of a negative value, but it is only in a sliver of thought and experience that we ever find truths. But you, you have just reduced the tiny margins from which learning is possible to the microscopic. We shall not grow wise before we learn that much we have done was very foolish--von Hayek

The Tenth Commandment sends a message–to everyone who believes wealth should be redistributed. And that message is clear and concise: go to Hell-- P J O'Rourke
The taxation rate for both Carnegie and his secretary in 1900 was zero. Of course, America at that time was a place without hope or the expectation of improvement.

This is the act of a lunatic, supported by a warren of lunatics. I am amazed to see that in their confidence they have lost their cleverness, and any sense of fear.
Chesterton would merely tell us that conservatives are playing their assigned role acquiescing in the liberal state by complaining about an appointment process which is unconstitutional, which strongly implies that the branch of government to which he is being appointed is legitimate.

That was not a brain freeze. The man is just witless.
I suppose that means Fukuyama assumed that the very books which Hayek wrote for those subjects, Fatal Conceit, and Road, were created to be read by amateurs like Reagan and not for learned professionals. In fact, most professionals refused to read them. They were given to understand, correctly, that Hayek placed a low value on the ability of the brilliant individual to understand the invisible hand, which does not reserve an appropriate place of honor for them.

Clearly, Obama is too thin to be President.
Bertrand Russell admitted it. "Much that passes as idealism is disguised hatred or disguised love of power."

Hey, Kirby, I made my first visit to Griffith observatory this year--not being from California. Streams of white people, hoards of Asians, a few Hispanics, not a single black person. Not one. In LA no less. What a country. Boo fucking hoo.

So we should make allowances for the Jew who, finding the best ground staked out by anti-Semites, takes opposite ground because it is opposite. Without courage and the willingness to risk being isolated, intellect is worse than useless, it is damaging.
When the Jewish intellectual mind left the confines of the rabbinical world abruptly to occupy politics and philosophy two hundred year ago, it was a race to the left. The prescriptions for the Jewish village of Maimonides, applied to millions of strangers, came into the brutal grasp of the international rabbi Marx. It is curious that the left, and the Jewish left especially, would have us examine every imagined flaw in the Western character, but never their own. That this is extremely counter-productive does not cross their minds. Good job, professor.
If I really wanted to choose who will live and who will die, I'd be a socialist and join a death panel. Classic leftist misdirection.
A Ponzi scheme benefits those in on the ground floor. SS, even as it screws some more than others, benefits no one. Whether or not it was so designed, SS served as a giant piggy-bank for government "borrowing".
"Every religious person is weird." You know an incredible number of persons. I certainly do not know all atheist, but even so I can see they are not all sterile. The ones who are not, like Theodore Dalrymple, acknowledge that atheism cannot support itself without becoming its own horrid religion. This blog has already linked to an excellent review of Perry's non-conservatism. via He is a cagier Bush, and his public religiosity is hypocrisy. Now there's a surprise, a hypocritical career politician. And if Calvin Coolidge doesn't run, I'll vote Perry over Romney without a second thought.
When we say that Jobs would not be a great President we are really only saying that it is a position that has evolved badly and cannot be performed well in that vein. A successful Presidency would mean a total downsizing and makeover of government. That is something which corporate takeover artist do fairly well. We currently have zero politicians running on that platform, including the inimitable Mr. Paul. The tendency of democracy is to demand more, not less. But is could be done.

This is an important link. I hope it does not go unnoticed.
If the information is accurate, or fake but accurate, it would easily be explained by the presence of Hillary factions. Obama thought he could buy and bury her at State, but that is a miscalculation. The Clinton's detests Obama, as do a significant number of Democrat operatives. If Obama is Peter Sellers in Being There, he is too ripe a target to ignore. And we are missing all the fun.

That is the first theory outside convention I've read that is not pathetic or nuts. Quite good, even.

Iran is the single middle-east state capable of improvement and self-rule, and that is the one we left to rot while we occupied ourselves with the charming people of Iraq. Even if an American government had better advice to offer Egypt than this present serving of embarrassing tripe, we just no longer have any standing to give it--which was an objective of Obama's foreign policy, but I don't think he is prepared to take credit for it happening so quickly.

It is understood that there is, somewhere, an Earth Store, and due to some accident of geography or circumstance, Americans got there first and broke the lock--consuming of it many times their proportion to the number of Earth Citizens. We bad. Very curiously, the Earth Store has not run dry due to our avarice, it has, incredibly, increased its stock. This puzzling state of affairs cannot be explained, but it can be ignored.

When we buy happiness with money we are buying unobtainium, but this does not prevent us from spending and borrowing to reach for this state. Therefore those peculiar creatures that buy happiness by saving money are the ones selling unobtainium, and should be reviled and taxed accordingly. Obama's Law.

What the professor means to convey is that equality can only be found in equality of outcome, and that black people cannot compete on equal terms with, say, Koreans. Ergo, we have race "normative" programs to produce equality in employment, income, and education certificates. That he is removing the contest of liberty from the very people that would benefit most from it sails right over his head, but perhaps the idea that he would be without left relevance does not.

It is true that states are sovereign, and what is sovereign cannot claim bankruptcy as a remedy. But as we see, the fact that an entity cannot seek bankruptcy does not mean it is not bankrupt. If there is one thing government is practiced in, it is in doing something it is forbidden to do while calling it something else. BTW, when we look at towns and cities just in California who have gone into receivership, the result is miraculous.
