Blacks Must Confront Reality

Actually, liberals/Democrats/socialists have ALWAYS tried to protect blacks from having to make their own decisions. After all it was Democrats who supported slavery, supported segregation when slavery was abolished against their will, then supporte Jim Crow laws when segregation was abolished against their will. And it's Democrats who support the welfare state that also takes that freedom and responsibility away. It makes sense - the Democrats are racists.

Your post sounds like Michael Brown's story. But the media hasn't reported on Michael Brown's family situation, though he had a step-father per http://www.newyorker.com/news/amy-davidson/michael-brown-die-ferguson I guess it's no longer politically correct to report such facts. Thanks to Williams for pointing out that avoiding reality won't help them, and going against this liberal/progressive idea of protecting them from reality.

Let’s Privatize Medicare

David Goldhill, CEO of the Game Show Network, author of "How American Health Care Killed My Father" and life long Democrat, writes: "So even with the government paying almost all of their bills, today's seniors pay a higher share of their income for health care than seniors did before Medicare." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-goldhill/a-democrats-case-for-no_b_502229.html This suggests that just abolishing Medicare would reduce the health costs of those on Medicare - that's how lousy a deal Medicare actually is. Abolishing it might be better than Ryan's privitization plan. While Ryan's plan removes the Medicare bureaucracy from being a competitor in the health insurance marketplace, it doesn't remove the bureaucracy that decides what health insurance plans can or cannot be sold. Nor does it remove the bureaucracy approving who can deliver medical care, and what care they can or cannot deliver. Still it's an improvement, and Ryan deserves our appreciation for delivering a plan that is far more specific, concrete and understandable than Obama's words, and one that would be an improvement.

No Facts, No Peace

The DOJ doesn't want the facts released from their investigation of the killing of Miriam Carey by the Secret Service and Capitol Hill police. She was a black killed by a white cop, she was unarmed with her child in her car, and was shot in the head by police. She wasn't charged with a crime, with everything caused by the reaction of the police for her inadvertently driving into the White House complex via an entrance thanks to police negligence. The reason Holder doesn't care for this to become news, is it's his police and in a Democrat controlled jurisdiction. http://www.wnd.com/2014/08/slain-moms-family-wheres-holders-outrage-for-us/ And to think the Democrats want a white Democrat prosecutor to step down in Ferguson, because his family has been employed by the police. Isn't this Democrats claiming that a Democrat is racist?

Faulty Ideas About Marriage

Schlafly uses a libertarian economist to claim "There is simply no basis for that notion [to get government out of marriage] in the works of classic libertarian writers." She would prefer that we ignore the large body of libertarian text that discusses exactly that and which is easy to find: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertarian_perspectives_on_LGBT_rights Plus there are many more - just google "libertarians on marriage". Or the Libertarian party platform which states: "Sexual orientation, preference, gender, or gender identity should have no impact on the government's treatment of individuals, such as in current marriage, child custody, adoption, immigration or military service laws. Government does not have the authority to define, license or restrict personal relationships." Schlafly, and social conservatives believe government has the right to jail/fine/penalize those who offend, but do not physically harm, them. For example, doesn't the tax law reward married couples where one stays at home? And doesn't it also reward those who can and do have children at the expense of others? Unfortunately, giving that power to government, also means that liberals can use government to jail/fine/penalize those who offend them, including social conservatives who say, don't want to bake a cake for a wedding of racists or homosexuals. Schlafly, social conservatives, and liberals have a flawed view of government. One in which they want to use government to harm people who aren't like them.

"Libertarian and Liberal are synonymous." Obviously not. Libertarians consistently support freedom. The NYT does not. Neither do Republicans who defend the redistribution of welfare (including corporate welfare - which the Democrats defend even more), the war against drugs, or treating people unequally before the law depending if they are married (where tax breaks apply) or if they have children (where tax breaks apply, and where government forces people without children to pay for the education of other's children).
Human desire for things is practically unlimited. It will be a long time before robots can do things like cut your hair, do a manicure, operate on you (without a surgeon guiding it), guide you on a rafting trip, weed your garden, cook a fine meal, or compete on Chopped.

"progressives chose poor heroes" Rosemary Lehmberg isn't even close to being a hero. She endangered citizens by driving drunk with a blood alcohol level of 0.23, almost three times the legal limit. Then she abused the police. I'd say, progressives choose and support criminals and those unfit for office, provided they support the Democrats. That's more important to them, than actually doing their job of defending our lives, property, liberty and pursuit of happiness. But that's not the job they want to do either. The job they want to do, is to take taxpayer money and put it in their wallets.

"Too many people in Washington are full of themselves, among other things that they are full of. " When Sowell makes such a statement, it lets us know what citizens think of the politicians in power. It's no wonder polls of Obama and Congress are so low. But hey, we get what we vote for, good and hard. People voting based on political rhetoric or party affiliation, fail in knowing what they are voting for. They should examine a politician's record first. Most of them are liars. Thus, Democrats voted for the "peace" president, and have elected someone who went to war in Libya without congressional approval, tried to go to war in Syria (and did surrepetitiously arming groups whereby ISIS got the arms), and now is going back to Iraq. And Obama claims it wasn't he who pulled the troops out of Iraq. And Republicans also elected the "humble foreign policy" of Bush that led to war with Iraq, and war with the Taliban. Neither Iraq or the Taliban attacked the US.
