Some Interesting Recent Headlines

Some interesting recent headlines garnered from hither and yon.
I forget the name of the paragon of moral righteousness who uttered these virtuous words; some thing out of Hollywood, a woman, I had never heard of her. It reminds us to never forget that there is much more to the current political climate in America than just economics. “Pro-life” means she hates people who oppose the murdering of babies. “Xenophobic” means she does not object when millions of people break the law. And “gay-bashing” needs no explanation. These people are a significant part of Barack Obama’s base.
A huge percentage, well over a majority, and probably over 90%, of the Democratic Party’s support comes from the morally base (white liberals), the dependent, Hispanics, and blacks. Look at the current state of Hollywood, Europe, Latin America, and Africa and you will see where the Democratic Party is taking America.
Headline number two: “Chinese media slams Romney as convention begins.” 

There is, of course, the Marxist element that also loves Obama. It isn’t small in the United States. For all its “openness,” the leadership of China is still in the hands of the Communist Party, which is the greatest enemy of freedom the world has ever seen. So any condemnation of Mitt Romney by the state-controlled Chinese media is as good an endorsement as any condemnation of Mitt Romney by the Obama-controlled American media.
And this third headline caused me to laugh. I don’t know why, it’s not necessarily funny, it’s just so….characteristic, so typical…of the kind of human being Barack Obama is. I am almost convinced (I don’t like to read anybody’s heart) that Obama hates America, so anything to do with honoring those who defend and protect the United States has to be anathema and repulsive to him. Anyway,
Headline number three: “Obama Honors Fallen SEALs By Sending Parents Form Letter Signed By Electric Pen...”
What an insult. Men who die protecting the principles that allowed him to become President of the United States, and Obama can’t do more than send them a form letter which he won’t even sign. But then, he’s too busy raising money and trying to retain power to give a second thought to the people he is supposed to govern.
On August 11, 2010, George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, went personally to the Dallas-Fort Worth airport to greet 150 Iraqi/Afghanistan returning war veterans. But then, George Bush is a great American.
And, here is an interesting little tidbit from Walter Williams’ most recent column. Obama and the Democrats are constantly calling out for the rich to pay their “fair share” of taxes, but we are never told what that “fair share” is. It would be 100% if Obama spoke the truth. But, the question is, how much are “the rich” paying in taxes? Williams:
“According to IRS 2007 data, the richest 1 percent of Americans earned 22 percent of national personal income but paid 40 percent of all personal income taxes. The top 5 percent earned 37 percent and paid 61 percent of personal income tax. The top 10 percent earned 48 percent and paid 71 percent of all personal income taxes. The bottom 50 percent earned 12 percent of personal income but paid just 3 percent of income tax revenues.”
Dr. Williams goes on to point out what is well-known: currently, 47% of Americans pay no federal income tax at all. Why should they be interested in an income tax cut, since they aren’t paying any taxes to begin with? And, indeed, a “tax cut” might scare them, because it might mean a cut in government revenue, which might mean a cut in their welfare check, which might mean—God forbid!—they would have to go out and work for a living. Not all 47% of these people are bums, of course…but a lot of them are. And guess whom they will vote for? “Yeah, take more from the rich…and give it to me!” It’s exactly what Barack Obama wants to do.
