You Keep Using That Word; I Do Not Think It Means What You Think It Means [Reader Post]

Maybe it’s time to drop the picket signs and pick up a copy of The Road to Serfdom [Reader Post]

It was with great interest that I watched Facebook catch fire with support of the calls for picketing and sick-outs at Wal-Mart stores across the country on Black Friday. From what I could tell, most of those supporting the calls were liberals who attacked the company with claims that it doesn’t pay “a living wage”, “exploits” its workers, or owes its workers health care. I even saw one fantastical claim that a majority of Wal-Mart employees are on food stamps.

Left wingers are animals [Reader Post]

I don’t know how else to describe them. Left wingers are animals. They whine about their rights- their rights to scream, their rights to yell, their rights to harass, their right to demand that everyone else pay to support them. And it is a one way street.

They’re not content to disagree with Sarah Palin. They try to shout her down.

Arrogance Incarnate – Obama and his union friends… [Reader Post]

Life not fair. Nor for that matter is it unfair. It simply is. It’s not fair or unfair that the lion feasts on the slowest zebra or that the penguin who leaps into the ocean at just the wrong moment becomes dinner for an Orca. Life is life… fair doesn’t come into play.

Fair is a fundamentally human concept that is defined by a lack of preference or favoritism and or injustice.

Despite its subjective nature, fairness is a word that the left loves to bring to what should be an objective realm, politics.

Unions- that’s where the big money is [Reader Post]

Ken Vogel at Politico, who seldom misses a chance to bash conservatives, does his best to convince us that the effort to eliminate collective bargaining is the result of a long term right wing conspiracy.

The conservative assault on public sector unions that seemed to explode out of nowhere in Wisconsin and spread across the Midwest was in fact months – if not years – in the making, the result of methodical polling, lobbying, messaging, grassroots organizing and policy crafting by a coterie of well-funded conservative groups.
