As for the housing market and the rest of the economy it only took a nose dive when Buffett’s inept Democrats took control of Congress and did absolutely nothing except push for higher taxes, terrorist appeasement, costlier energy and expansion of the government. When banks are compelled to loan money to high risk individuals as part of a social egalitarian experiment the end result is obvious and you don’t have to be a vulture capitalist to predict the future. While working Americans struggle Warren Buffett will keep raking in the cash and then sheltering it from taxes by funneling it to liberal non-profits on a mission to socialize America.p>I have a suggestion for Warren Buffett, George Soros and the wealthy liberal elite: give all your money to real charities that help people and quit profiting from the pain of others if you’re so damn altruistic. Maybe President Bush should take a page from the Warren Buffett playbook and seek legislation to strip the vulture capitalists who caused this problem of all their profits and wealth — I mean if Warren Buffett thinks it’s good enough to destroy the family farm and small businesses with the death tax maybe its time we stuck it to him like he wants to stick it to us. br> — Michael Tomlinson /p> p> SOCIAL MASOCHISM br> Re: Lisa Fabrizio’s Those Who Forget the Past : /p>
Ms. Fabrizio writes of her experience at a party in Connecticut that she attended with her fiance. She recounts the bitterness, hatred, and bile that was directed at her and her finance’ during the party. She then writes; “Once again we witnessed the phenomenon where otherwise perfectly nice people were transformed into fire-breathing attack dogs at the mere mention of the GOP.”
It constantly amazes me that otherwise sane conservatives and Republicans continue to submit to this kind of insulting behavior, and harassment. No, Ms. Fabrizio, these are not nice people. These people are not friends. Friends do not act that way towards their friends.p>I will never understand why people that belong to the Republican portion of the activist class, and the public part of society seem so willing to submit to this treatment. Surely there are Republicans and independents in Connecticut who also give parties. I hear the same stories from Laura Ingraham on her radio show, and she keeps telling her audience that these harridans are “nice people.” I have come to believe that you folks that time and again present yourselves to be treated thusly must be true masochists. What else would you call someone that continually submits to the attacks of their vicious, sadistic, mentally unbalanced members of their social circle. I would find a new social circle within which to spend my time, one where the people are more congenial, and more circumspect But then I am not a masochist, even if I do live in the Peoples’ Republic of New England.. 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?
