Where Have You Gone, Bill Buckley?
IT is a shame that William F. Buckley Jr. passed away in 2008. The conservative movement could use him — or someone like him — right now.
In the 1960s, Buckley, largely through his position at the helm of National Review, displayed political courage and sanity by taking on the John Birch Society, an influential anti-Communist group whose members saw conspiracies everywhere they looked.
Fast forward half a century. The modern-day Birchers are the Tea Party. By loudly espousing extreme rhetoric, yet holding untenable beliefs, they have run virtually unchallenged by the Republican leadership, aided by irresponsible radio talk-show hosts and right-wing pundits. While the Tea Party grew, respected moderate voices in the party were further pushed toward extinction. Republicans need a Buckley to bring us back.....
The absence of a Buckley-esque gatekeeper today has allowed extreme, untested candidates to take center stage and then commit predictable gaffes and issue moon-bat pronouncements. Democrats have used those statements to tarnish the Republican Party as anti-woman, anti-poor, anti-gay, anti-immigrant extremists. Buckley’s conservative pragmatism has been lost, along with the presidency and seats in Congress.
Wow, brilliant piece. Nailed it.

Actually stupid, the Making Work Pay Tax Credit was a major part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and did put extra money into workers pockets.
Do you honestly think that your "creative" spelling makes you look clever? It doesn't it makes you look like your intellectual development stalled at fourteen years old.
A meaningless wealth redistribution program that accomplished nothing, an additional short-term rebate.

Libertarianism and right-wing stupid are polar opposites. Your confusion over the issue is completely understandable since there are so many stupid right-wingers who think they're libertarian. To illustrate however, you won't find banning abortion, opposition to gay marriage, supporting US imperialism, or endorsement for the "war" on drugs or immigration coming from any legitimate libertarian source. All of those positions and many many more are antithetical to the libertarian philosophy.
Therefore Ron Paul and his son are not libertarians.

Time to bring home the bacon:

DETROIT (WJBK)-- The city of Detroit faces a major financial crisis and one member of city council thinks President Barack Obama should step in and help.

City Council member JoAnn Watson said Tuesday the citizens support of Obama in last month's election was enough reason for the president to bailout the struggling the city.

"Our people in an overwhelming way supported the re-election of this president and there ought to be a quid pro quo and you ought to exercise leadership on that," said Watson. "Of course, not just that, but why not?"

Nearly 75 percent of Wayne County voters pulled the lever for Obama in November.

"After the election of Jimmy Carter, the honorable Coleman Alexander Young, he went to Washington, D.C. and came home with some bacon," said Watson. "That's what you do."

No I didn't see that, he's another one I just find absolutely repulsive; he'll drive himself into a tree one day like that other freak in Texas. Eventually they self destruct.

You haven't seen me label him anything...because voting for a POTUS is NOT voting for a preacher (unlike SOME of the freakish dolts that cannot fathom that here in the US, people CAN and DO seperate their religious affiliations from their work related ones)
He's just another Hienz 57 stater, who apparently does not see the rational or logic in showing educational records for SOME reason or another (ESPECIALLY if anyone started college at 16) in my book.
Now, when want to switch gears from the LAMEbrainless modes of just mere phat crayon kindergarten level personal assaults on people, to discussing on higher thinking levels, ISSUES, such as the economy, FOREIGN POLICY and the likes, do feel free to chime in.
Again, 1st of all you right wingers (you & those alike) say you don't mix church & state, yet child of god has proven you wrong or haven't you read those posts!

Even though it didn't come from your mouth consecutive minds think alike. Proof your response too my last post! Just like every other right wing nut, you attack something that has nothing to do nothing. His birth certificate, his college applications, his religion, whats next? He don't qualify to be president because he wears boxers not briefs or because his boxers aren't magical! We can talk economy if thats what you want, but 1st acknowledge the fact that none of this was his doing. He is the solution, bush was the problem. Nothing he's done in office was in opposition of progress of for the middle & lower class. Infact one can say the opposite. Do I have to remind you that you just voted for mitt romney, or do I have to name all the republican candidates & all there ludicrous ideas/ideology & outdated theories & socialist views? Barack Obama was the best man for the job so if you think he's incompetent whats that say about who you chose to represent you & your views?

Hillary in 2016? Popular Idea

Carried by a new high in personal popularity and broad approval of her work as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton closes out her diplomatic career with majority support as a candidate for president in 2016.

Fifty-seven percent in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll say they'd back a run by Clinton to succeed Barack Obama, vs. 37 percent opposed. That includes a broad gender gap - 66 percent support for Clinton among women, dropping to 49 percent among men.

I could vote for Hillary.

Exactly the point. Nobody has a clue. But the history of all such programs (Social Security, Medicare) is that the costs are much, much higher than original estimates.

Fiend watched his victim die: Homeless man arrested in Times Square subway murder:
A homeless drifter last night confessed to tossing a Queens father onto a Times Square subway track, where he was fatally crushed by a Q train, law-enforcement sources told The Post.

Naeem Davis, 30 was being grilled in the grisly death of Ki Suk Han, 58, who was struck in front of horrified onlookers Monday after trying desperately to scramble back to the platform.

Davis told police that he “stayed and watched” as the train hit Han, a law-enforcement source said.

“He said he heard his torso snap and he knew he was dead.”

Davis showed no remorse for causing Han’s death, another source said.

Homeless man shoeless again despite cop's gift of boots - wants 'piece of the pie'

Officer Larry DePrimo gives Jeffrey Hillman boots and socks.

The New York City homeless man — whose gift of boots from an NYPD police officer became an online sensation — is back on the streets with no shoes.

The man, Jeffrey Hillman, formerly of South Plainfield, NJ was found Sunday night wandering barefoot in Manhattan, The New York Times reported.

Asked about the $100 all-weather boots Officer Larry DePrimo gave him on Nov. 14, Hillman says he's hidden them because "they are worth a lot of money."

He says he's grateful for the gift, but he wants "a piece of the pie" because the photo was posted online "without permission."

An Arizona tourist snapped the photo of the officer presenting new boots to Hillman. It went viral after it was posted on the NYPD's Facebook page.
