We Taxpayers Paid $700,000 for a Lefty Obamaling Climate Show that Failed……Democrats Exempt

THE SHOW WON’T GO ON

by Elizabeth Harrington at the FreeBeacon

“After a series of lackluster reviews, the traveling global warming musical that was financed by the U.S. taxpayers is ending its run early.

The Great Immensity, a musical described as “painfully long” and “awkward,” was made possible by a $697,177 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

“The play, which featured songs and video exploring Americans’ relationships to the environment, opened in New York in April with a three-week run before going on a national tour that was supposed to attract 75,000 patrons,” FoxNews.com reported. “But it stalled after a single production in Kansas City, falling short of the lofty goals outlined in a grant proposal.”

The musical was intended to tour the country in an effort to convince Americans to act on climate change. It ended up attracting meager audiences of theatergoers who were likely already on board with the play’s politics, the Washington Free Beacon found after seeing the play on its opening night in New York City.”

Lou Holtz’s TWO AMERICAS and Democrat Party Politics of Envy!

TWO AMERICAS by former University of Minnesota football coach:

The Democrats are right, there are two Americas. The America that works, and the America that doesn’t. The America that contributes, and the America that doesn’t. It’s not the haves and the have not’s, it’s the dos and the don’ts.
Some people do their duty as Americans, obey the law, support themselves, contribute to society, and others don’t. That’s the divide in America.
It’s not about income inequality, it’s about civic irresponsibility. It’s about a political party that preaches hatred, greed and victimization in order to win elective office. It’s about a political party that loves power more than it loves its country. That’s not invective, that’s truth, and it’s about time someone said it.

The politics of envy was on proud display a couple weeks ago when President Obama pledged the rest of his term to fighting “income inequality.” He noted that some people make more than other people, that some people have higher incomes than others, and he says that’s not just. That is the rationale of thievery.

The other guy has it, you want it, Obama will take it for you. Vote Democrat.

That is the philosophy that produced Detroit. It is the electoral philosophy that is destroying America. It conceals a
fundamental deviation from American values and common sense because it ends up not benefiting the people who support it, but a betrayal. The Democrats have not empowered their followers, they have enslaved them in a culture of dependence and entitlement, of victim-hood and anger instead of ability and hope.

The president’ premise -that you reduce income inequality by debasing the successful -seeks to deny the successful the consequences of their choices and spare the unsuccessful the consequences of their choices. Because, by and large, income variations in society is a result of different choices leading to different consequences. Those who choose wisely and
responsibility have a far greater likelihood of success, while those who choose foolishly and irresponsibly have a far greater likelihood of failure.
Success and failure usually manifest themselves in personal and family income. You choose to drop out of high school or to skip college – and you are apt to have a different outcome than someone who gets a diploma and pushes on with purposeful education. You have your children out of wedlock and life is apt to take one course; you have them within a marriage and life
is apt to take another course. Most often in life our destination is determined by the course we take.

My doctor, for example, makes far more than I do. There is significant income inequality between us. Our lives have had an inequality of outcome, but, our lives also have had an in equality of effort. While my doctor went to college and then devoted his young adulthood to medical school and residency, I got a job in a restaurant. He made a choice, I made a choice, and our choices led us to different outcomes. His outcome pays a lot better than mine. Does that mean he cheated and Barack Obama needs to take away his wealth? No, it means we are both free men in a free society where free choices lead to different outcomes.

It is not inequality Barack Obama intends to take away, it is freedom. The freedom to succeed, and the freedom to fail. There is no true option for success if there is no true option for failure.

The pursuit of happiness means a whole lot less when you face the punitive hand of government if your pursuit brings you more happiness than the other guy. Even if the other guy sat on his arse and did nothing. Even if the other guy made a lifetime’s worth of asinine and short sighted decisions.

Barack Obama and the Democrats preach equality of outcome as a right, while completely ignoring inequality of effort. The simple Law of the Harvest – as ye sow, so shall ye reap – is sometimes applied as, “The harder you work, the more you get.” Obama would turn that upside down. Those who achieve are to be punished as enemies of society and those who fail are to be rewarded as wards of society.

Entitlement will replace effort as the key to upward mobility in American society if Barack Obama gets his way. He seeks a lowest common denominator society in which the government besieges the successful and productive to foster equality
through mediocrity.

He and his party speak of two Americas, and their grip on power is based on using the votes of one to sap the productivity of the other. America is not divided by the differences in our outcomes, it is divided by the differences in our efforts.

It is a false philosophy to say one man’s success comes about unavoidably as the result of another man’s victimization. What Obama offered was not a solution, but a separatism. He fomented division and strife, pitted one set of Americans against another for his own political benefit. That’s what socialists offer. Marxist class warfare wrapped up with a bow. Two Americas, coming closer each day to proving the truth to Lincoln’s maxim that a house divided against itself cannot stand.

“Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.”

Why Such a Wussy Republican Campaign to Topple Fanatic Democrat Senate Control?

This past evening I watched American hero conservative, David Horowitz, on CSpan2 speaking about the cause of his new book, Take No Prisoners. In it he exposes, as usual, the enemies of freedom, today’s Marxist Democrat Party that produced the devious, habitually dishonest Islamophilic American, Harvard Marxist Barack Obama and the scandalous universities who brainwash young America to become neoStalinists, enemies of basic human liberties. He is highly critical of current Republican inability, perhaps refusal, to expose the Obamaling Democratic Party for its Marxism, its Anti-Americanism, its dishonesty, its devious control over the nation’s educational, communication, and entertainment industries programmed to close ever further the American mind and ability to think, write, or act outside its intolerant, fascistic tenets.

The Republican Party must learn to fight the nation’s neoMarxism on every front.

Today is my 80th birthday. David Horowitz, I am certain is older than I am. Fifty years ago I was teaching Russian and had undertaken my first trip to a Marxist state dictatorship, the Soviet Union, receiving a grant as a consequence of the National Defense Education Act of the Eisenhower administration. It was then when I first discovered Mr. Horowitz, his tenets and writings.

This David Horowitz of today’s conservative efforts to restore American liberties was the David Horowitz who a half century ago was a leading spokesman for the American Communist Party. Like today’s Obama crowd these Communists called themselves “Progressives”. These Progressives were and are devoted believers in determining, creating, and enforcing “Equality” as they as rulers determine, that is, dictate.

Many were leaders and participants in the violent cultural, drug, black racist, and sex revolution of the American antiVietnam War movement of the late 1960s. Events of that revolution caused David Horowitz to reevaluate his views of the American way. He left Marxism and became America’s best, brightest, and most dedicated spokesman from then to this very day….a true national hero for what he has taught, spoken, written, and endured.

Based on today’s Obama administration’s successes from elections despite or perhaps because of its deviousness and intrigue, its plottings and blatant untruths, the Left has managed to unify educators, the press, entertainers, amd many in the Big Business world to join, support and propagate a more threatening Progressive dictatorship. No one knows the evil in the American Left than David Horowitz even in his mid 80s.

David notes that Republicans have no clue how to combat these evil deviants, even how to expose them as enemies to traditional American liberty they truly are.

Read the article below to increase your worry about establishment Republican ability to save America from its Marxist blood bath future.

The Joe Biden We Hear and Feminist Speech Codes

The most powerful feminist religious institution in America today is the popular Nazified group, NOW….the National Organization of Women. It’s glue of togetherness is the collective worshipping of the Goddess of Feelings. Its managers and followers have deemed Truth an evil, worse, a masculine-devised evil unfeeling of female needs, emanating from an innate masculine drive seeking knowledge and reason necessary for thinking, building, inventing, composing, protecting.

Feminists are presently popular in America. They elevated to its presidency America’s first feminized president, Barack Hussein Obama in 2008.

The National Organization of Women is a world-wide religion born in America. The language used for NOW communication is called, “political correctness”.

Our present American Vice President is a friendly, verbose, freelance likable, the bit loony, Joe Biden, once a lifetime Senator from the state of Delaware. He speaks beautiful Bidenese……which, as it happens, irritates today’s fuhrers leading NOW. Bidenese is not included on any of the languages passing NOW’s political correctness tests.

Below is an article from the National Journal referring to the Bidenese spoken by the Vice President as ‘gaffe’.

Richest Man in China Endorses Reagonomics

Rush Limbaugh Stunned at Hearing What Richest Man in China is Saying about Business Wealth

from The Blaze:

“Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh was beside himself on Friday after hearing the richest man in China endorse what the host claimed was “Reaganomics.”

Jack Ma, the founder of multibillion dollar company Alibaba, became the richest man in China after a ridiculously successful public offering on the New York Stock Exchange. The stock finished trading at $93.89 a share, leaving the company with a $231.4 billion valuation, a number even larger than Facebook. Ma has a roughly $18 billion stake in the company and made $867 million selling shares.

Limbaugh was seemingly fascinated by Ma’s “rags to riches” story as he said people only get very rich in China when they are “allowed to” by the Chinese government. He said Ma’s story sounds more like an “American story” — but Americans aren’t even talking like that anymore…..”

A Closer Look at Scot’s Independence Movement Defeat

Scotland Rejects Independence but Changes Britain

by Lou Cannon at realclearpolitics:

EDINBURGH, Sept. 19 — Scottish voters’ decisive rejection of independence yesterday reflected the triumph of fear about the economic unknowns over the hope for nationhood.

The outcome was not a surprise but the margin was greater than pre-election surveys had predicted. Fifty-five percent of Scots voted against ending Scotland’s three-century union with Great Britain; 45 percent voted for independence.

The turnout was 84.6 percent, largest in Scotland’s history. Twenty-eight of Scotland’s 32 districts voted against independence, but the nationalists won Glasgow, the largest city.

Although the independence forces led by Scotland’s first minister, Alex Salmond, were disappointed at the outcome, they quickly proclaimed that Scotland would achieve a greater measure of self-government as a result of the campaign. Their opponents, a multi-party coalition banded together under the banner of Better Together, agreed.

“All those who voted for independence, we hear you,” said British Prime Minister David Cameron, leader of the Conservative Party.

Teacher Unions in Florida Attack School Choice Program

Attacks on School Choice in Florida

September 19, 2014 from the National Center for Policy Analysis:

Ignorance is champion in today’s typical American public school. How can students become educated with uneducated school teachers?

The following article is from the National Center for Policy Analysis:

Attacks on School Choice in Florida

September 19, 2014

Controversy has developed in Florida over the state’s school choice program, reports the Wall Street Journal, as unions claim that the program is hurting public education.

In 2001, Florida Governor Jeb Bush developed a school choice scholarship program. Charitable contributions (for which donors receive tax credits) fund private school scholarships, allowing low-income students to attend schools of their choice:

Only students who are eligible to receive subsidized federal lunches qualify for the scholarships.
For the 2014-2015 school year, scholarships were capped at $5,272.
Two-thirds (70 percent) of scholarship recipients are minority students whose families have an average income of $25,000.
$357 million in tax credits are available to encourage the program (an amount equal to less than 2 percent of local and state education budgets).
In the last four years, the number of students receiving scholarship awards has tripled, reaching 70,000 children. A lawsuit by unions, however, threatens the program, as unions charge that the growth of the tax credit program is unconstitutional. Why? The Florida constitution requires “adequate provision” of public education, and the unions contend that school districts lose $6,944 each time a student uses a tax credit scholarship to attend a private school.

But the scholarship funds are not a part of the Florida treasury — they are composed entirely of private contributions, and no money is sent to private schools to pay for the students’ scholarships.

Moreover, the Wall Street Journal reports that the program has only helped Florida students, both in public and in private schools. Florida per-pupil spending on students in public schools has only increased since the introduction of the tax credit program, rising by more than 40 percent since 2001. Additionally, not only is the program saving money (taxpayers saved $58 million in 2012), but Florida students in public schools have seen testing gains — likely the product of increased competition due to the growth of the scholarship program and charter schools.
