Republican’t in CA. Aspiring to Pravda. Abandon ship! Plus more.
Re: David N. Bass’s California Schemin’:
California is a shining example of a failed socialist state in the throes of fiscal suicide. The Governator has aided and abetted the moral and fiscal bankruptcy of this once giant economy by allowing unions to dominate the political agenda while ultra-liberal coastal slices dictate social norms. Where else can you find example after example of the democratic process overturned by an activist bench? Don’t like the way the vote went? Just file a suit. No problem.
Within 12 hours of Mr. Obama’s victory, the California press was preconditioning the citizens of this state with a reinstatement of the vehicle registration tax, then a day later a “temporary” 1.5 cent sales tax increase. All the while promising to gore everyone’s favorite ox, the public school system if we don’t go along like the sheep he believes we all are. Scare tactics always work here.
Mr. Schwarzenegger must believe, like all liberals must, that
taxation is the cure for every problem. Certainly it’s
helped in California, where tax revenues have increased some 79%
but spending has outpaced even that fairly phenomenal
rate. Perhaps Arnold needs some remedial
arithmetic. Maybe Gavin Newsome can teach him some new
tricks. Oh, I forgot, San Francisco is already
bankrupt. Did they go to school together?

This is typical of the Republicans, better known as the stupid party. I for one will never again vote for a Republican for national office. Hence forth I will be supporting candidates of the Constitution party or candidates endorsed by Ron Paul.
My brother lives in Madison, WI, a town known for its liberalism and he has been surprised by the number of people forming Ron Paul support groups. The Republican Party is done, stick a fork in it. It threw its base (European Americans) under the bus in a misguided effort to lock up the Hispanic vote. The Republicans at the behest of Rove and company were also instrumental in pressuring Fannie May and many other institutions to lend to illegal aliens and Hispanics with a poor or no credit rating for the same reason.
This election was the last chance to turn things around in this country, to bring the country back from the precipice of being over run by hordes of third world peasants, who will contribute nothing to this country and will instead end up being supported by the productive, taxpaying citizens of this nation. However, this will not go on indefinitely, the result will be the break up of the United States into several smaller nations based on language, ethnicity and culture.
When given the chance to reverse the gathering momentum towards
partition what did the Republicans offer the electorate? Amnesty
John McLame, the worst candidate in modern history and possibly
the worst candidate to ever run for office. The man is totally
clueless and is hopelessly out of touch with what is going on in
this country and the forces that are on the verge of tearing it
apart. As for the Republicans, they had their chance and they
blew it. I will close with the following quote, which by the way
was hopelessly mangled by the moron presently occupying the White
House. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on

WE CALLS ‘EM LIKE WE SEES ‘EM
Re: Peter Ferrara’s The Party-Controlled Press:
My husband watched all the Obama coverage (he’s retired) and the news media was extremely biased and pro-Obama. Especially CNN.
Everything that I saw personally was also that way.
The ratings tell the story: All of the ostensible “main-stream” news outlets are down. The Times (LA & NY), the Boston Globe, and others are firing staff, amidst declining revenue & circulation. TV fares no better with the exception of the FOX News Channel, being the only “news” channel that’s either maintained or grown their audience. Talk, Rush & Hannity really, have held their audiences if not grown them as well.
The mainstream press, bored with the anonymous tarmacs of
Allentown, PA will blame us, the stubbornly objective American
people for not being progressive enough to get it. But we do get
it, that’s why we’re here at the Spectator…amongst

“This is the West, sir. When the legend becomes fact, print the
legend.” Thus spoke the small town newspaper reporter in the 1962
movie “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.” Journalists have truly
come full circle. Much of the news is now “legend,” at best, not
unlike that which caught the fancy of many in the 19th century.
Some of the hit pieces that get published are much like the
anti-German propaganda during World War I. And television
has “Access Hollywood.” Can “Access Washington, D.C.” be

Re: Bret Joshpe’s The Left’s Invisible Constitution:
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?
