This article is filled with lies.
No details, mind you. Certainly we would be happy to correct anything we got wrong. As Wlady Pleszczynski pondered, maybe Alec really doesn’t like classical music. One of the beauties of the Internet is that original source material is linked. So readers can go through my piece and follow the links directly to the Baldwin Fund’s listing of its “Corporate Partners” and all the rest — where one can plainly find the listings for “Corporate Partners” Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch, and Exxon Mobil.
Then there’s another Baldwin twitter-explosion at someone who challenges his truthiness, calling them a “right-wing idiot.”
But at last a weary Alec says defensively: “I find this laughable. If you try hard enough, u can tie anything 2 WS. The bus comp. that drove the protesters.”
Well. Bingo, Alec. So now comes the sort-of-concession from Mr. Anti-Wall Street that “u can tie anything 2 WS”?
This is called capitalism. The free market. Of which you, Alec Baldwin, have partaken mightily. Lifting yourself from middle class Long Island school teacher’s kid to one very rich man. So rich, in the view of none other than the New York Times, that even that citadel of liberalism ran a story scorning your claim, curiously tied to a potential run for mayor of New York, to be just one of the hoi polloi. The Times laughed of your living quarters that:
Mr. Baldwin, a 53-year-old Long Island native, is hardly huddling with the masses. He lives at the Eldorado, Art Deco twin towers that loom over Central Park West between 90th and 91st Streets and the blocks of multimillion-dollar town houses to the west.
The paper added that Baldwin was selling his pad for $9.5 million.
To which we can only say: good for the school teacher’s kid. We like the free market, we like Wall Street. Why? Because, as Baldwin was noting in his own interesting fashion, Wall Street really is “Main Street.”
But to the point.
Mr. Baldwin says we lied.
We await the details.
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?
