A Truly Great Phony

Al, perhaps Mr. Sowell is wise enough to stay out of the mud called progressive politics, and focuses more on using his wisdom and insight to keep the issues before us. You know, "the pen is mightier than the sword" type of thing. What politician in office has the ideas or time to write as Sowell does, without compromising for fear of position? None. Not even Reagan. Politicians write after they've left office and established their libraries to remind us of how great they WERE. Genius writes while the politicians are in office, and find their calling and peace in doing so. They can only hope that the current ruling "mastermind" heeds wisdom, as most of the engaged populace does.

A Truly Great Phony

Mr. Sowell, if there's one thing I've learned in life it's to keep your peace when you don't have anything to offer to the debate. But when you do, embarrass the fools who think they know something (or, everything). Is it any wonder that we have no record of Obama writing "on the record?" "Even a fool, when he keeps silent, is considered wise; When he closes his lips, he is counted prudent" (Pr. 17:28). "A fool's mouth is his ruin, And his lips are the snare of his soul" (Pr. 18:7). Perhaps he's much wiser than most think, and like Satan, has stolen a principle or two from the Standard when it serves his purposes?
Good job. There's one left in the original constitutional party that mans his set of balls against the communists.
This guy's a hoot, and he's using his fifteen minutes of fame the right way--with a sense of humor and self-deprication when wronged. I'd recommend all Americans tune into his reality show. It's probably the only one that shows reality in Obama's America.
Get a job. That way, you won't have the time to think about "free speech." You'll be focused on earning enough money to pay for the toilet paper you'll need to wipe your butt and flush your ideas. Free speech need only be true speech, and from those who've actually thought through the issues.
That's just great--let's go with "consensus." Doesn't matter that "consensus" is usually driven by lazy, "government-as-god" idiots who restrict free speech to what they want to hear.
Levin's books are always bestsellers on the left-wing NY Times booklist. What is missing are the actions of those "conservatives" who don't want to get a bit of dirt from the fight under their fingernails. I love Cal Thomas--he's a Christian brother--but what's he doing at the local level fighting against the Brigandi's and McCabes that lick the balls of the feds for more money?
It might happen when us 60-year-olds who actually remember learning about the U.S. Constitution in public school from Mr. Crispin (hat-tip to the Washington Township, Gloucester County, NJ, School Board of the 60's for hiring him), are found lying in our own blood after defending our properties that we've actually worked for. I would hope that at least then, one or two of our Rowan University, left-wing academically-trained idiots would then begin to "feel" the pain of their fellow man, who were stupid enough to let them go to university to begin with.
Bought the book on Tuesday, the same day it was released for purchase to the peons like me who actually do something to build America. I'm now halfway through it, and I agree with everything Levin recommends--as I've always done with everything Levin has written. He calls Tocqueville prescient--I call Levin a genius for putting it together for us. As always, a good work. So when are we going to do what we need to do--start acting at the local level to remove local politicians who bend the knee to the federal leviathan and swallow like a bunch fools?
This poor man needs an all-expenses-paid vacation. "You have heard then, comrades," he said, "that we pigs now sleep in the beds of the farmhouse? And why not? You did not suppose, surely, that there was ever a ruling against beds? A bed merely means a place to sleep in. A pile of straw in a stall is a bed, properly regarded. The rule was against sheets, which are a human invention. We have removed the sheets from the farmhouse beds, and sleep between blankets. And very comfortable beds they are, too! But not more comfortable than we need, I can tell you, comrades, with all the brainwork we have to do nowadays. You would not rob us of our repose, would you, comrades? You would not have us too tired to carry out our duties? ~Squealer, Press Secretary to Napoleon after the takeover of Manor Farm.

My Marxist Retirement Plan

Mr. Right, your comment is both biblical and timely. The Savior mentions only two groups of people that should be the focus of our charity, and they are widows and orphans who, in that first century culture, usually had no one to take care of them after the scribes and Pharisees (i.e., the government/religious leaders/judges, rolled into one office) plundered their inheritances and left them to die. Of course, Paul said to "do good to all men, but especially to those who are of the household of faith" (Gal. 6:10). Let the lazy lay in their hammocks--they'll get hungry soon enough if the Marxist utopians miraculously wise up and stop redistributing our hard-earned wealth for votes. I suggest we not hold our breath.
