Nicely done, Star. A few years ago I wrote a similar column pointing out that, by definition, whatever government does, it cannot properly be called charity: http://www.jpattitude.com/100225.php. Liberals love to confuse the definition of and misuse words, and I think this particular misuse gets to the crux of the difference between conservatives and liberals.

Ouch. I hope those words make "Cru" (really?) take a good hard look at themselves.
You were firing on all cylinders when you wrote this column. Well done. I would like to think that Pollitt will feel shame at being called out like this, but I am not confident.

"If we are going to talk about history, let's at least get the facts right." Exactly. Republicans need to trumpet the facts from every roof top. The history of the Republican Party is heroic, the history of the Democrat Party is racist and oppressive. The Democrat Party Timeline of Ignominy: http://www.jpattitude.com/DemocratPartyTimeline.php
"The ACLU issued a statement saying that it was "outraged" over the vandalism." Humorous, eh? Thea ACLU is perfectly fine with doing the same thing to the Ten Commandments legally so why would they take issue with a more direct method?

"Only multi-millionaires can afford to fight back." But even they are helpless. I recommend reading Conrad Black's book about his own persecution by the American justice system. After years of prosecution, driving him out of his own company, and nearly bankrupting him, Chicago gangsters... er, I mean prosecutors finally convicted him of removing evidence - in Canada - which was his personal possessions the company asked him to remove from his office - and which was stuff the prosecutors already had seen. For this a company was ruined and a man spent time in a American prison.

One thing I would dispute: that Benedict Arnold is our nation's most notorious traitor. We have a new contender.
$28,000 a year? And they consider this revolutionary? Stupid. Why do students need to pay room and board when they're taking classes online? Let them stay home, wherever that might be, and take their classes in their underwear, reduce the costs to something reasonable like $500 year, and open the whole world up as a customer base.
Wow, Ann. Whatever has caused you to go off the rails over the last couple of years, it's disheartening. This column reminds me of when Charles Johnson went off the rails. Take some time, Ann, and pay attention to your mental health. (No, that wasn't meant as an insult. I'm sincere.)
Thanks, Humberto, you've given us yet another reason to despise Jesse Ventura. Notice that he is always described as a Vietnam vet. Even NavySeals.com describes him as a Vietnam vet. I wonder how that rumor got spread all over the place. In reality he never got closer to Vietnam than the Philippines. He served two years on active duty DURING the Vietnam War... but I guess when you become a politician that gets inflated al la Dickie Blumenthal, the lying senator from Connecticut who's spent his whole life bragging about being a Vietnam vet when he never left Washington, D.C.
