    Bernie Sanders (champion of the "downtrodden", the climate, wannabe punisher of the successful and "free stuff" Santa Claus) charted a Boeing 767 jet for his overnight trip to Rome to see fellow socialist Pope Francis. According to the Daily Mail... that requires approx 33,192 gallons of fuel for the round trip. 50 or so passengers made the trip with Bern (767 capacity is 250 or so). Comparison to me: calculations of driving patterns based on my two vehicles (one a dreaded eeeveel SUV!), my wife and I "Bern" about 25 gallons of fuel a week. Based on our total fuel...

    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said black lives matter and called for an end to institutionalized racism during the Democratic presidential debate Tuesday night. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton praised President Barack Obama's handling of race issues and called for more body cameras and an end to criminal justice policies that target black men. The exchange was part of a focus on black and other minority voters during the event held in Nevada, an important swing state where elections are often won by non-white voters. "We need a new New Deal for communities of color," Clinton said. During the debate,...

    Republican Louisiana state Sen. Elbert Guillory was on “The Kelly File” tonight to discuss his controversial new ad, in which he calls on black voters to “send Kay Hagan home.” In the ad, he says, "You see, black people are just being used by limousine liberals who have become our new overseers. We've only traded one plantation for another. You are not Kay Hagan's cause and you're certainly not her charity. You are just a vote. She has stepped off your backs to fame and fortune and left you behind on food stamps, deprived of the American dream." Tonight, he...
  • What White Privilege Looks Like When You’re Poor

    Inevitably, when you talk about white privilege someone will ask the question, “What about poor white people? What privilege do they have?” In January 1961, John F. Kennedy was inagurated as the nation’s thirty-fifth president. In February 1961, he signed an executive order for a pilot food stamp program, one based on the model previously used during the Great Depression. During his campaign, Kennedy had spent much time in West Virginia, and according to his speechwriter Ted Sorensen, “was appalled by the pitiful conditions he saw, by the children of poverty, by the families living on surplus lard and corn...

    To glimpse Swedish angst under its picture postcard prosperity, look no further than film director Lisa Ohlin, who has enjoyed years of tax cuts in an economy the envy of Europe. Homes in her Stockholm neighborhood cost around $1 million. But this leafy, well-heeled area is a microcosm of Sweden, where eyes are on a struggling school with strained finances, not enough teachers and poor results. Like many Swedes, Ohlin wants her cherished welfare state back. […] Voters like Ohlin are returning to faith in cradle to grave welfare after eight years of center-right Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, who cut...

    On Monday's NBC Nightly News, anchor Brian Williams – who reportedly earned $13 million a year in 2012 – quoted Karl Marx while hyping a new report on global income disparity: "...the staggering news out today about the growing gap between the haves and the have nots." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump] Williams melodramatically recited the findings: "Some new figures came out today....And they are so shocking, it takes a while for them to sink in.

    Surf. Sun. Disneyland. What’s not to love about California? Well, apparently, a lot of things. In a poll released Tuesday by the Public Policy Polling, California was the least popular state in the United States. Only 27 percent of Americans hold a favorable view of the Golden State compared to the 44 percent who view it unfavorably. “There’s this arrogance about Californians,” said Patrick Dorinson, a radio host in California who refers to himself as the Cowboy Libertarian. “Californians still think it’s this great star. It’s a tarnished star at this point.” The gap of 17 points puts California far...

    ... Veesart is an enforcement supervisor for the California Coastal Commission, one of a handful who have the sometimes impossible job of making sure people can find their way to public beaches. In beach towns like Malibu, where wealthy homeowners have gone to lengths to block visitors from the majestic shoreline with security guards and locked gates, the toughest thing about spending a day on the sand can be finding a parking spot. And at times, it's the bogus "No Parking" sign that stands in the way. The warnings are so prevalent and often so convincing that parking next to...

    Schumer Has A PlanSenator Chuck Schumer, Democrat, N.Y. thinks the president's plan to raise the taxes on households making more than $250,000 may require a special dispensation for New Yorkers. After President Obama unveiled his totally new plan for the new plan for deficit-reduction that Americans hear about every other month, the plan that raises taxes on households that have an income of over $250,000, he flew to New York for a fundraising event (tickets were priced at $36,000). A reporter, Marcia Kramer asked lawmakers from the New York region what they thought of President Obama's tax plans. Most of...

    Those who have read Ann Coulter's latest column on Strauss-Kahn, may see it as her usual political satire, but she is deadly serious. She mentions the little known fact that Karl Marx, whom the left regards as the champion of the oppressed, was a slaveholder. According to Coulter: "Karl Marx kept a female slave from the time she was 8 years old, eventually using her not only as a servant but as his mistress, never acknowledging his child with her or paying her at all. She waited on him hand and foot while he explained to the world that profit...

    Rotund filmmaker Michael Moore has checked into a luxurious weight loss spa in Miami, The Daily Caller reports. The controversial Moore arrived at the Pritikin Longevity Center and Spa in mid-November, where the price tag for a week's stay is $4,200, a guest at the facility confirmed to the political news website. Moore, the doughy documentary maker famous for left-leaning films like Fahrenheit 9/11, Capitalism: A Love Story, Bowling for Columbine, and Sicko, has spent time at the facility in recent years, claiming to have lost 30 pounds on the center's diet plan, the report said. The center promotes an...

    Real Clear Politics ^ | August 10, 2010 | David Paul Kuhn
    Affluent Americans are Barack Obama's most secure class of support. They have stuck by this president at three to six times the rate of all other income groups since early 2009, based on a RealClearPolitics analysis. It's a familiar story that wealthy voters have moved toward Democrats in recent years. But the remarkable steadiness of Obama's affluent support has continued with little notice. The national media has instead heavily covered Obama's tepid flings with populism. You would think Obama's rich support was running to Republicans. It's not. Wall Street money has recently come to favor Republicans. But in broad terms,...

    PLEASURE POINT -- The state Coastal Commission encourages California's seaside communities to embrace clean energy -- with a caveat. It has to look good. The regulatory agency has told a Santa Cruz County couple that a wind turbine planned for their new home in the Pleasure Point neighborhood is too tall. Suggesting it would add to the area's "visual clutter," the commission recommends the residents lower their proposed 35-foot-high, electricity-generating windmill, an idea the home's architect says is simply unworkable. "You can also put photovoltaic cells in a garage, but it's not going to do much for you," said Cove...

    People such as George Soros and Michael Moore certainly talk a good game, but the next Mother Teresa they are not. Mother Teresa never criticized the free-market system; wealth just wasn't for her. Soros and Moore are quite the opposite. They will never take a vow of poverty and dedicate themselves to helping the poor. They just want our civilization to take a vow of poverty and become poor. This has caused many to wonder: How can someone preach socialism while being the most rapacious "capitalist" imaginable? Well, I have a theory about this. It has often been observed that...

    On the campaign trail, Barack Obama promised to get a million plug-in hybrid cars on the road by 2015. His own new presidential limousine will be far from green, however. The Obamobile being prepared for the president-elect is said to be a monster gas-guzzler made by General Motors, the troubled car giant. It will look like a black Cadillac but is built like a tank. A spy photographer who tracks down future car models for magazines snatched pictures of the heavily disguised first-car-in-waiting when it was being road-tested last summer. The armour-plated car, which has a raised roof, windows up...
