Believers in Obama

Yes - Thomas Sowell asked all these very right questions just before First Fool got elected the first time. How come he can't seem to be heard? Can't we do something? Can we instigate a national Thomas Sowell Day? He would be such a perfect teacher forthe naive and clueless that we are so well supplied with today.
I wonder if they have no brain.
In my worst moments, Black and White Brian, I whole-heartedly concur. Sad, is it not?
I agree with you 100%, jrpublic. Do you recall that the Declaration of Independence refers to the unfortunate fact of human existence that men will put up with all manner of imposition and inconvenience from their government over a long period of time before they are moved to do anything about it - the point being that the American colonies had finally had it with King George and were taking the vastly consequential step of declaring their independence. Well, here we are - putting up with the grossest violations and yet indisposed to take remedial measures - as of yet. But I have hope that we're getting there. The Convention of States is a good beginning.
That was "contrasting" JFK to Obama.

Why DID they do that? Speculation: Judge Napolitano took time off to be treated for cancer.

And pity us, who did know it and now have to live in exile.

Most likely some discreditable reason. The guy looks good, but experience does teach that power tends to corrupt. And corruption seems to snowball nowadays.
Yes, that is my reaction too. Is this quote manufactured?

Joe Biden is beginning to look less fearsome, God help us!
Yeh, I know what you mean, and I feel that it cannot be good for our species to abort our young. I think you are correct that it is a matter for the states, and of course the Congress didn't legislate it, the Supreme Court did. And now the states are stuck with it. It is my opinion that government should, insofar as humanly possible, LEAVE IT ALONE! In modern times there is no reason to rely on abortion for birth control, and I believe it would be a rare instance when a normally intelligent woman would need to abort a foetus. If you recall, back in the 50's and 60's when the women's movement burst upon us, women were in general economically dependent on men. The unfortunate woman stuck with a totally irresponsible male pretty much lost the option of escape if she had a dependent child. This is not true now, and thank you, Women's Movement. Yes, I know there are women today who somehow need a born-alive baby removed from them. But we could surely provide for the child as a society, rather than do away with it entirely. Buy the child from her! We need taxpayers, after all, and as it is, we are replenishing our population with immigrants. This, it seems, would be a truly beneficent use of public money.
