As for gun control, which the Democrats have successfully re-labeled "gun safety" and "gun violence", the real goal all along was a national gun registry. And they'll get it. DiFi's assault weapons ban was a smokescreen all along. They what they always do. Offer an outrageous proposal they know won't pass and then "settle" for what their real goal was all along. And Republicans are stupid enough to fall for it. Putting your head in the sand is not being an optimist. It's being stupid to what is happening and it's really disconcerting to read something like this from someone who was close to Andrew Breitbart. He knew what we are up against and was willing to fight back. FU #WAR

This essay is so wrong I don't even know where to start. First, China is not buying our debt anymore and hasn't for a couple of years. The Fed is buying it. It's like using your Mastercard to make the minimum payment on your Visa. Then there's 2014. The Democrats WILL take back the House and gain seats in the Senate. Everything they're doing now, and everything Obama is doing and saying is setting the Republicans up to take the blame for the economic crash that will come in the summer of 2014. We're looking at hyper inflation. A crashed dollar. They'll do it because they know the media will help them destroy what's left of the Republican Party. And it will work. Being realistic is not being a pessimist.

Intellectuals and Race: Part III

In my view, intelligence, talent, and ambition are rare qualities no matter what the race or background. Most people, on average, are just plain stupid. Most people are barely competent. I think society used to recognize that and that's why achievement was celebrated. Whether it was being smarter than the average bear, or a star athlete or musician, or just someone who busted their hump to move up the ladder, we admired it. We've lost that amid the everybody-gets-a-trophy self esteem movement that has long since permeated the workplace. The other problem with "intellectuals" is that far too many people think a formal education equates to intelligence. It doesn't. Some of the dumbest people I know have advanced degrees.
