A liberal Democrat on Fox News praised President Obama for his conduct of the Health Care Summit. In particular he noted that Obama demonstrated how important it was to listen to other people. Que? Are we talking about same Summit and same Obama? Did he miss the fact that our Glorious Leader spoke more than all republicans combined? Does anyone really believe that Obama can talk and listen at the same time (that is listening to other people - not himself)? The art of listening requires the listener at the very least to shut up and let others speak - which is surely NOT what Obama did. The official idea of the Summit was for Obama to listen to republicans and their ideas - but the republicans got only 1/3 of the time of the Summit to present their point of view - and even then they were constantly interrupted by the One. Is this a liberal idea of listening to the other side?
White dancers win the contest - liberals cry foul. This is the funniest article I've seen in a long time. According to CNN: "On February 20, the University of Arkansas chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha, a predominantly white sorority, won the inaugural Sprite Step Off stepping competition, beating two predominantly black sororities." As can be easily predicted, this cultural enrichment and diversity did not feel good to the promoters of cultural enrichment and diversity. According to CNN: "But the results immediately sparked a firestorm within the African-American fraternal community, with many calling foul. How could a white sorority beat black sororities at our own art form? Why were they even competing in the first place? Some alleged that judges cheated, while others posited that the novelty of white women performing swayed the judges." Ahm. I guess this is exactly how a white racist feels when he learns that a black kid won the competition in violin - let alone the rodeo. As one
Every time someone tells me that the government can provide effective oversight, I look at all the stuff that the government does well. Tax codes - the bright example of government efficiency and simplicity. The postal service (now it won't work on Saturdays). And the magnificent system of subsidies. And now, we got this. The State of California created a list of child abusers. What's ironic is that it's enough to be ACCUSED of a crime - and you get on this list. But it gets better, much better. Even if the court clears your name - you still cannot get off the list. As the local authorities said - they don't have a procedure to this. And these people want to run insurance companies? Oy-wei.
Obama will have to raise gasoline prices to $7 a gallon to fulfill his promises. This is what the NYT tells its readers. The sobering reality of Obama's plan is obvious - in order to make His promises good, we need to completely destroy the US economy. And while we are doing this - the Chinese will continue pumping as much CO2 into the air as is humanely possible. And what will happen next? Do you think the world, where communist China is the dominant power, and US is in ruins, will be a better, safer place to live?
FBI is asked to find the killers of Hamas terrorist. It's been reported that Dubai police asked Obama's FBI to help them track the killers of the top Hamas leaders, Mahmoud al-Mabhouh . It is well-known that Hamas is a terrorist organization, and it's against the US law to provide any aid to it. It is rumored that it were the secret service of some moderate Arab countries that killed the terrorist. Any aid that FBI would give to Dubai police is equivalent to aiding and abetting Hamas. Will the FBI, run by Obama's operatives do that? Will they help Dubai to prosecute moderate Arab states and thus make the world a safer place for Hamas? The future will tell, but as I said earlier, we will be lucky if US is a neutral country during the presidency of Barack Obama. Don't forget that Obama sanctioned Honduras when its Supreme Court ousted the communist president of that country for the attempt to illegally seize power.
-A few nice quotes about liberals taken from here.

"I've never quite been able to figure out why liberals self-identify with qualities such as 'bright', 'non-conforming', and 'hanging loose', then turn around and demand a system of government that represses creativity and initiative, stifles individuality, robs the productive to support the slothful, and demands a high degree of unthinking conformity. ... Liberals seem to think they are libertarians, but until they learn that economic freedom is more important to the health of a free society than sexual license, they will remain Stalinists in drag." -- Mr. Jeeves

and "Annoy a Liberal: Work. Succeed. Be Happy" -- seen on bumper stickers
