This trained many Blacks in real need to patiently wait, their hands held out, for all their needs. Housing? We’ll build huge blocks of Soviet-style apartments for you for free! (That makes it easier for Democrats to segregate Blacks and be assured of their votes.) Food? We got you covered. Food stamps and government surplus is yours. And you get more by having more children (i.e., an assembly line of Democrat voters).
Unfortunately, these poor people actually believed the Democrats cared for them. As always they waited placidly for the Pelosi-Kennedy-Kerry axis to bring them what they needed. Hadn’t that always been the case? Not much mind you, did they ever bring, but enough to cover the necessaries. And so America was treated to a heart wrenching sight of the results of Democrats doing to Americans what they have done to so many others: the Vietnamese, Cambodians, Nicaraguans, etc. — abandoning them in their hour of greatest need and then blaming Republicans for the oppression of the abandoned people.p>This is the lesson we need to learn from Hurricane Katrina. br> — Jay W.

On the same day you publish an article saying that the President needs to smile, smile, smile, and the Goldblatt article on the Million More Movement, which has not even one smile-inducing line. The article footer suggests Goldblatt is a satirist, but really he cannot be, unless his article is a satire too deep for me.p>Look at the photos of the event; the one of Sir Roderick Farrakhan (I can’t call him Louis anymore, just can’t) and his uniformed sidekick is incredible, unbelievable, fantastic, joyful, made my month. Hail Spode and his blackshorts. Hail Farrakhan and his shortblacks. Hail Wodehouse, the great prophet of the ages, the man who knew what comes from humanity over and over again and he laughed and made us laugh. br> — Fred Z. /p>
Mr. Mark Goldblatt’s deftly crafted post in today’s American Spectator said it all so well. Membership in today’s economic underclass is a not so much a result of collective inaction (or racism) as it is of individual rejection of certain key values. Those who choose — or are misled into — economic dependence early in life over education, family and responsible behavior are probably doomed to lose. Little wonder that the race hustlers count on perpetual dependence and disorder to keep the game going.p>While the word “respect” is so overused as to render it a sad cliche, it is critical to freeing the underclass from its historical position. Respect of women, of scholarship, of striving, and of self, are individual characteristics that usually do not flow from any government or activist program, no matter how well-meaning or compassionate. Those ideals flow from parents, peers, and, at one time — teachers and clergy. Unless and until the Millions More stop rejecting truths spoken by men like Bill Cosby and Mark Goldblatt in favor of abandoning women, children, and education, Billions can march with little positive effect. And sadly, in that case — we ALL lose. br> —
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
