Here is their description of Progressives and their agenda:
The purpose of our Progressive movement is to instill enormous guilt among wealth creators, causing them to give their money to us voluntarily. Think of guilt as secondary taxation. While the government extracts the first round of money by taxing a limited number of activities by wealth creators (with the help of a mind-numbing tax code), the imposition of guilt allows us to extract the remaining money in virtually unlimited amounts by associating guilt with the broadest range of activities - from what you eat to how big your toilet tank is. Most of you are guilty merely for breathing air, and the number of victims suffering from your noxious CO2 exhaust is unlimited - from the whole planet Earth to endangered microscopic communities of bacteria that thrive collectively on dead bodies and whose existence you are jeopardizing by selfishly staying alive.
An American official familiar with the negotiations said that President Obama never had any intention of making the stop over. "It wasn't going to happen. We went through the motions to placate President Sarkozy but giving special treatment to France was not on our agenda. During this trip, we wanted to maintain a balance between the British, [the] German[s], and France."
[Our President, on this tour of foreign nations, found time to visit Turkey, bow down in subservience to the Saudi King, announce that America, but not himself, is arrogant, announce that America is not a Christian country, said we must deeply respect Muslims who have done so much to shape our country, and in general apologized for America to everyone he met. But - he he didn't want to "offend" Germany by honoring America's part in freeing Europe from Hitler - so, he deeply offends our military, their families, and America.]
From Gerald Warner of the UK Telegraph: President Barack Obama has recently completed the most successful foreign policy tour since Napoleon's retreat from Moscow. You name it, he blew it. What was his big deal economic programme that he was determined to drive through the G20 summit? Another massive stimulus package, globally funded and co-ordinated. Did he achieve it? Not so as you'd notice.
Then came the dramatic bit, the authentic West Wing script, with the President wakened in the middle of the night in Prague to be told that Kim Jong-il had just launched a Taepodong-2 missile. America had Aegis destroyers tracking the missile and could have shot it down. But Uncle Sam had a sterner reprisal in store for l'il ole Kim (as Dame Edna might call him): a multi-megaton strike of Obama hot air.
"Rules must be binding," declared Obama, referring to the fact that Kim had just breached UN Resolutions 1695 and 1718. "Violations must be punished." (Sounds ominous.) "Words must mean something." (Why, Barack? They never did before, for you - as a cursory glance at your many speeches will show.)
President Pantywaist is hopping mad and he has a strategy to cut Kim down to size: he is going to slice $1.4bn off America's missile defence programme, presumably on the calculation that Kim would feel it unsporting to hit a sitting duck, so that will spoil his fun.
Watch out, France and Co, there is a new surrender monkey on the block and, over the next four years, he will spectacularly sell out the interests of the West with every kind of liberal-delusionist initiative on nuclear disarmament and sitting down to negotiate with any power freak who wants to buy time to get a good ICBM fix on San Francisco, or wherever. If you thought the world was a tad unsafe with Dubya around, just wait until President Pantywaist gets into his stride.
||Barack Obama is ignoring the words of the Democratic Party's founder, Thomas Jefferson, who warned, "A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine." |
Obama didn't recently come to his desire to redistribute income. In an interview given to Chicago Public Radio in 2001, then-State Sen. Obama said "The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution, at least as it's been interpreted, and the Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties."
“Any fourth grade history student knows socialism has failed in every country, at every time in history,” said Putin of Russia. “President Obama and his fellow Democrats are either idiots or deliberately trying to destroy their own economy.”

Hillary - on piracy: a must see.... [I'd sure like to know what is so very funny about piracy!]
COLUMBUS, Ohio – The sky is still dark when David Waun begins to barbeque 400 lbs. of meat. "I just didn't want to drive around any more with a bumper sticker that says 'We support the troops' without actually doing something," Waun said. He barbeques with some regularity for National Guard members....
"A repairman was willing to patch a leaky roof for a deployed soldier's wife, and a woman who volunteered to care for dogs and cats while Guard members spent weekends at drill training. A generous accountant even offered to prepare taxes for hundreds of harried service member.So many people think that what they have to offer is not what we need," said Michele Gire, a mother of three Marines who spearheaded the town hall effort. "And they're so wrong. There's so much they can do."
"A lot of these organizations want to help," Wayt said. "They just don't know the pathway to do it."
