Posted on 12/26/2008 6:56:52 AM PST by PurpleMountains
At last a prominent liberal has admitted what most of us already knew: that liberals may love to have the government spend your money on their favorite causes, but they are tightwads when it comes to giving their own money or even their own time to charities. Once again another study affirms that conservatives give more money and time to charitable causes than do liberals. This fact has become known despite the predilection of many Hollywood liberals to hire public relations staffs to publicize their good deeds in Sunday magazines like Parade and USA Weekend.
Now if only some prominent liberals would admit to the failure of so many liberal policies like: 1. forcing banks to give mortgages to people with no chance of paying and to deadbeats

Every quarter when we have our Red Cross blood drive, he makes a big production about sending out a company-wide email stating that he is scheduled to give blood at such-and-such time. When that time comes, he is always "too busy" to leave his desk. Last time, though, he called one of his subordinates and instructed him to go down and give blood in his place. Liberalism in a nutshell.
Liberals only God is power, greed, ego.
Not to mention how much they are PAID to host and even to ATTEND those charity shows and events many of them do during the year. Sickening.
Thanks for posting.
Look, libs are some of the wealthiest people in the country. They have multiple billionaires (Soros, Lewis, Geffen, Buffet, Winfrey, etal) who by themselves could easily help the millions (or is it billions) of unfortunates who live here and around the world. But they refuse to give up their many mansions, fleets of cars and airplanes to help the wretches. They prefer you help all the unfortunates through higher taxes.

The line I’ve heard is “They throw around quarters like
they were manhole covers”. (I picture John Kerry...)
Affirmative action not only did that, but also deprived better qualified whites (and in some instances, Orientals), especially males, of educational and job opportunities!
Furthermore, the author is in error by referring to affirmative action in the past tense. It is still very much with us.
