Does Income Inequality Even Matter?

LarryFromMo Wrote: Jan 05, 2015 12:18 PM
"The underlying issue in America is not income inequality, it’s government barriers and cronyism that prevents the middle class Americans from being able to easily start up businesses". Unfortunately government barriers and cronyism are what the politicians, especially Democrats, rely on for gathering power and wealth. Income inequality is just a bogeyman they use for the gullible in order to motivate them to vote based on jealousy and give the government even more power.
Great article. Only quibble is that you are using the Green's Orwellian term "carbon emissions". It is carbon dioxide. It is a subtle lie they try to foist on us by the use of this term. When discussing wind and solar it would be worth mentioning one of the environmentalists' prior darlings - ethanol. How much land does that take compared to oil and natural gas? As far as I can tell the only benefit from the ethanol mandates is that it provides pork barrel benefits for farmers.

Republicans, Democrats, and White Men

Which of Mitt Romney's policies constituted "waging a sort of racial and gender war by other means"? This article is way off base. The Republicans are not about identity group politics and they should not start now. Their policies of lower taxes, smaller government and less regulation should appeal to people of all colors and genders. They should sell their policies better to minorities and women only because they have to respond to the slander from the Left such as "War on Women" and other such nonsense. Once minorities realize that they are more likely to have a better chance at upward mobility with Republican policies the Democrats are in trouble.

Can the Pope Shut Up Too?

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/10/god-is-not-a-magician-pope-says-christians-should-believe-in-evolution-and-big-bang/ It's funny how you criticize the Left's twisting of the pope's words when you jump on this bandwagon by repeating this inflammatory bad translation without making sure you had it straight.

Embarrassing Economists

Dr. Williams, I believe Dr. Krugman is both a more intelligent and more insidious person than you imply. He understands the economic principles you mention, but he also knows that there are many out there who do not. He and the Liberals/Democrats promote these policies that sound like they help the little guy but are actually harmful. When the Republicans oppose these ideas because they are harmful, the Libs portray them as against the little guy and for the rich. It is not about what is right or wrong or the correct economic theory. It is about what will further their political interests.

Sisters of Mercy

As a Catholic conservative, I disagree with the author's attempt to portray these left wing nuns as representing the whole Catholic Church. I believe that most people would be in agreement that they should help those who are less fortunate. I was surprised that the "from each/to each" quote was from Marx. I don't have a problem with helping others or using what I have to meet the needs of others. The disagreement lies in the question "Who gets to decide what I give to charity, to whom, and how much?" For these nuns, too many religious leaders, and the Left in general that answer is the government. I disagree. As the person who earned what I have, I believe I have the moral right to be the person who answers that question rather than the likes of Pelosi and Reid. They and their ilk are experts at manipulating the good intentions of others in order to increase their power and wealth. They portray any attempt to roll back the welfare state and decrease their power as an assault on the poor. Look at the phony "war on women". Is it really an attack on women to ask them to pay for their own birth control pills rather than force someone else to pay for them? These nuns and others who trust the government to be the arbiters of charity are misguided.

Of Racial Delusions and Riots

Those who promote the idea that there is widespread " systemic and institutional racism against Blacks" are responsible for much of the plight of black youth today. They are constantly bombarded by their elders and "black leaders" with the message that they will never get anywhere because the "system" is rigged against them. Instead they need a message of hope that they can achieve the American dream if they work hard and avoid the pitfalls of drugs, violence, crime, and self-pity. Dr. Ben Carson is very wise when he says that the person who has the most impact on your success is you (paraphrase). A sad aspect of the Michael Brown story is that this young man who was preparing for college felt that he had nothing to lose by robbing a store and assaulting a police officer. How do we instill a message of hope in black youth?
