Entitlement Attitude on Townhall

Robert Morrison - Wed Nov 9

Well, why not tax all those millionaires and billionaires to close the budget gap? J.P. O’Rourke said it with more humor: Why not “eat the rich”? We could certainly appeal to the Occupy Wall Street crowd and maybe get ourselves some favorable treatment on MSNBC. Who knows, by yelling “soak the rich” we might even send some shivers up and down Chris Matthews’ leg. ... more

Decades of government intervention into economic activity have produced economic distortions, sluggish growth, an unsupportable debt burden, and a rotten financial structure ready to collapse of its own dead weight. In spite of that record, most Europeans want more government. That’s their choice. Like it or not, sooner or later, we reap what we sow. ... more

"These people want to put their education to good use... not have it wasted on a slave wage position." ... more

At the Occupy Phoenix demonstrations, fliers encourage protesters to violently resist police officers, asserting that "you will usually have only two options: submit, or kill the cop." At Zuccotti Park in Manhattan, an Occupy Wall Street protester was sexually assaulted in her tent; according to the New York Post, a woman was raped at the same site a few weeks earlier. ... more

Brian Birdnow - Thu Oct 27

The Occupy Wall Street movement, and its host of copycat imitators around the country have garnered much attention recently. They have been largely lauded by the mainstream media, who have explained that the occupiers are idealistic youth guided by altruism and concern for the downtrodden. ... more

"Don't touch me!" the man in the wheelchair shouted to stop me from placing my hand on what used to be his left arm. ... more

Emmett Tyrrell - Thu Oct 27

It's called the Taranto Principle, and it's now being employed by the Kultursmogists to blanket the country in a preposterosity: namely that the Tea Partyers and the Occupy Wall Street crowd have much in common. So go ahead, loyal Democrats, and take up the Occupiers' anger. ... more

Terry Paulson - Mon Oct 24

The mirror into modern-day America created by the "occupiers" who have taken to the streets reveals painful images and insights for those committed to traditional American values. Even without a clear, core message, most Americans can identify with the anger at those who have contributed to our broken economy. But many tax-paying Americans are equally fed up with the stream of complaints from the self-obsessed protestors who want their debts forgiven and the "rich" to pay for their "free" education. ... more

Michelle Malkin - Fri Oct 21

We have entered a new phase of the endless Occupy Wall Street sleepover. Not working is hard work. ... more

Marvin Olasky - Tue Oct 18

Last month I wrote about creating more jobs by not worrying about inequality and putting aside class envy. One reader responded by asking whether I truly understood the debilitating effects of inequality and the anger it can cause. Oh yes, I know. ... more

Michelle Malkin - Fri Oct 14

The trash generated by the "Occupy Wall Street" protests keeps piling up. So do the bills. Liberal media outlets claim the anarchic, anti-capitalist movement is more popular than the tea party. But wait until Americans across the country get a full picture of the costs of the aimless occupiers. ... more

Michael Reagan - Wed Oct 12

The unemployed among them complain that the jobs available to them are beneath them. This bunch seems to be living under the delusion that simply by virtue of having been born they are entitled to immediate arrival at the boardroom level with appropriate compensation. ... more

Bill Murchison - Tue Oct 11

Al Sharpton, Nancy Pelosi, different leaders of varied labor unions -- pour it on, folks! Show your political solidarity with all the "occupations" going on around the country! Speak to us in anguished tones about the awfulness of free market mechanisms like banks and the horror of earning more money than someone else. ... more

Ashley Herzog - Mon Oct 10

Right now, New York is under siege by a bunch of spoiled jerks who demand everything they want while doing nothing to deserve it. ... more

Austin Hill - Sun Oct 9

“…You don’t see CEO’s driving to work in a junky old Honda like I am. They’re driving Bentley’s. And I want MY BENTLEY! And I want it NOW!” ... more

Socialism – the abolishment of private property – sometimes advances at the point of a gun. At other times, it advances by co-opting the language of freedom. ... more

Sarah Palin’s new book, <i>America By Heart</i>, comes out today, and any American who believes in faith, family, love of country and even history, will enjoy reading it. ... more
