Michael Savage is wrong. Liberalism isn't just a mental disorder.
It's the result of having a lobotomy with a rusty and dull scalpel. Here's my proof:
Recently, the commie fingersniffers at Talking Points Memo ran a story about how some bougerois socialist from academia, Susan Feinberg of Rutgers, "caught" Republican Congressman Paul Ryan with two bottles of $350 wine at his table at the swanky Bistro Bis in Babylon...er, uh....Washington DC. The "outraged", and according to Ryan, drunk as hell, Feinberg demanded to know if the men Ryan was eating with were lobbyists. (They weren't. They were economists Cliff Asness and John Cochrane.) After she finished her own very elobarate and expensive meal, Feinberg then marched over to Ryan's table and asked the Congressman how he could live with himself, since he was paying for expensive wine while cutting benefits for poor and elderly. (It should be noted that Ryan paid for his meal and one of the bottles of wine.)
Now, this column is not about defending Paul Ryan. It's about defending capitalism and showing how incredibly stupid the 2+2=5 Left truly is. From the Talking Points Memo propaganda piece:
"Feinberg, an economist by training, was even more appalled when the table ordered a second bottle. She quickly did the math and figured out that the $700 in wine the trio consumed over the course of 90 minutes amounted to more than the entire weekly income of a couple making minimum wage.
'We were just stunned,' said Feinberg, who e-mailed TPM about her encounter later the same evening. 'I was an economist so I started doing the envelope calculations and quickly figured out that those two bottles of wine was more than two-income working family making minimum wage earned in a week.' "
Here's the funny part: Feinberg, as an economist, should know that Paul Ryan's expensive wine actually created more jobs and more wealth than any government program could ever hope to. After all, Ryan's purchase helped to pay the maitre d of the restauant. And the head chef. And the sous chef. And the kitchen porter. And the busboys. And the wine sales rep. And the wine distributor. And the winery. Just like Leonard Read pointed out in his mind blowing essay "I, Pencil", no product on God's green and cooling earth can be produced by just one entity. A product is produced by the effort of countless people and countless numbers of people benefit from its purchase. This isn't just "Right Wing rhetoric", this is an undeniable fact, just as it's an undeniable fact that the countless numbers of people who who benefit from the purchase of a product are also people who purchase products. This creates an endless cycle of wealth redistribution that the government, despite how clever it thinks it is, can NEVER reproduce. (Oh, you don't believe me ? Ask anyone who is a LEGAL immigrant from the former Soviet Union, China, Cuba, or Venezuela how well the forced redistribution of wealth works.)
The reality of the situation is this: the American Left is nothing more than a bunch of bougerois socialists who are economically illiterate morons. They will never understand how their idiotic attempts to help the so-called poor harm everyone. They will never understand the fact that the forced redistribution of wealth creates a far larger wealth inequality than capitalism does. (The politburo always lives better than the proletariat. I can assure you that Hu Jintao, the dictator of China, lives waaaaay better than a slave...er, uh....employee at FoxConn.)
God help us all.
It is not a mental disease...it is really demon possession.
Roger that, patriot!
I still think it is a mental disorder.
Leftism is a combination of hypocrisy (among the leftie political elite) and cowardice (among the leftie “intelligentsia”).
If a conservative is a leftie who’s been mugged, a leftie is someone who wishes to prevent being mugged by pre-emptively giving any potential mugger YOUR wallet.
Lefties are cowards who would sell you out in a heartbeat if they thought it would buy them 5 more minutes of their pathetic little lives.
How else explain why they will suck up to people who would actually kill them at the first opportunity (Muslims, for example) while pretending that they have courage by attacking those who would protect them but who have enough honor not to (e.g. conservatives, US Service men and women).
They know that the former WOULD kill them while the latter wouldn’t.
We need to start calling lefties what they are: yellow bellied potential slaves who would rather live on their knees then die on their feet - and they’d kill us if they could to continue living on thier knees.
This left-wing economist is ignorant to the fact that she is really condemning herself.
Ryan is a capitalist and as such understands that through capitalism the economy prospers best for all. Nothing he is doing is out of line with his own beliefs.
Yet why is she out at this place having dinner? She should be home wringing her hands over how should fairly divide up any worth she has in order to redistribute it to those less fortunate.
She is a mental midget who doesn’t even realize that it is she who is making a mockery of her own beliefs with her statement and actions.
It is the same across the board with the left-wing. They only want to dictate the lives of others and never want to practise their own beliefs.
Te big time AGW fear mongers ride around in limos and private jets while telling others to live less.
Obamas appointments and his buddies at GE are all tax cheats and pay nothing while they push to raise the taxes of others.
The left preaches tolerance but then never shows an ounce of it themselves.
The list could go on and on. Be it a mental disease or just flat out corruption, lies and crime the democrat party and the entire left-wing are full of it.
Must have been a very good tip, for the hard working waiter and kitchen staff to split.
They are sickening blobs of excrement. Honestly, I can’t think of one lib I admire for any reason. Not one.
This old saw about the poor and the elderly is not even logically consistent. What is special about the elderly that makes them en masse deserving of a government benefit? Stated another way why does the left insist that the elderly rich be given Social Security and Medicare benefits? After all, Warren Buffett may be old but he is also very rich! You would think therefore that it would be the left demanding means tests for these precious public resources.
The answer of course is because it works. And this says as much about the stupidity of the Sheeple as it does about the cunning of the left.
Here’s another thing to consider-— The “poor” in the United States are among the richest people in the world. Ask any Somali (the non-pirates, of course) who lives on $600 a year.
I bet it was! Just 20% on the bottles of wine comes to $140 and from what the article inplied the meals are probably in the over $50-$100+ range.The waiter waitress could’ve easily made $170+ in tips from one table!

Another few years of Obamanomics will right that wrong.
What was a communist doing in a high priced restaraunt instead of a food pantry?
It’s always sacrifice for thee and not for me, according to the collectivists.
At the grocery store recently, a food stamp reciepient bought over $300 in T-Bone steaks and seafood.
I bought ground sirloin.
Where was Paul Ryan when I used to wait tables ?
Running into liberals in Minneapolis, it could well be demon possession. If they run into any one who refuses to drink the Kool-Aid, they get violent. They act like they are threatened, as if the demon were shown a crucifix, or came in contact with holy water.
You got that right, patriot!
