Rhetoric matters. Words matter. Socialism sounds like “being social.” Conservatives keep denouncing Socialism. I wonder how many people know what it is. A good friend who works at a pregnancy center in Georgia recently set up a booth at a local college. It showed the development of an unborn baby.
The cry for “social justice” is a call for the State to do something to fix economic and relational inequities without any regard to a universal principle of justice. Equality of outcome is the goal, the same goal that we find in Communist nations. Everyone is equal, equally impoverished except
This caught my attention. Hilario Yanez who “once praised President Barack Obama for his executive order that protected Yanez and hundreds of thousands of other illegal aliens from deportation, gave them work permits, and allowed them to attend American colleges and universities,” has changed his tune. Yanez recently stated that “Democrat leaders
When Pope Francis speaks, liberals listen, except when it’s about abortion and same-sex marriage, unless, of course, he spouts liberal talking points. His latest comments are about the poor. “The Gospel does not condemn the wealthy, but the idolatry of wealth, the idolatry that makes people indifferent to the call
I don’t owe anybody anything except what I’ve contracted to pay over time. I’ve never owned a slave. I’ve never denied a black person a job. Who is Charlie Rangel to demand reparations from me? Trillions of dollars have been paid out to poor people for more nearly 50 years.
Can you imagine a Republican saying the things that Nancy Pelosi says and still remain in office? Democrats don’t care how idiotic their elected official is as long as he or she votes the right way. Satan himself could be on the ticket and Democrats would vote for him if
Jeb Bush is considering running for President in 2016. Please spare us. It’s just what the Republicans need. The second Bush barely eked out his 2000 and 2004 wins. It was his policies that created the Obama refrain, “It was Bush’s fault.” And much of it was, although the fault
With all the votes in, it looks like 117 million people voted, about 13 million fewer than in 2008. Even Obama didn’t as many votes as he did in 2008. There’s a great deal of discussion about why Obama won. Rep. Jim Jordan (R.-Ohio), the chairman of the House Republican
The Liberal Left has been in a feeding frenzy over what they describe as “dominionism” coming from the Republican presidential candidates. Michelle Goldberg was the first to throw blood in the water with this claim: Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry aren’t just devout — both have deep ties to a
What? There’s poverty in America? The latest statistics are in. The number of Americans living below the poverty line rose to a record 46 million in 2010, the largest in the 52 years since the Census Bureau has been publishing poverty estimates. How is this possible? The Great Society policies
Liberal talker Alan Colmes claims that Jesus “believed the rich should give to the poor.” Let’s assume that Colmes’ analysis of Jesus is correct. This is a far cry from saying that rich people should be taxed and that the government should give indiscriminately to the poor even though they
