Dennis Prager on the Monolithic Blockheaded Inner City Minority Values

Maybe these bigots need to take a little look at their intolerance, their hype over their phony self esteem, their own devotions and priorities, their own evil which they mindlessly proclaim upon others.

There is nothing complex about their habits.     What victories besides hating and electing Obama,  can the black racists and their Democrat Party allies claim from the $6,000,000,000,000 of American taxpayer has spent on  civilizing, modernizing,  and educating to create self reliant, honest,  trustworthy, stable,  fair-minded neighbor and neighborhood loving, financially responsible, American citizens over the past 45 years of handouts in our inner city,  Democrat Party managed  black plantations?

Is there a more racist organization in all America than today’s National Association for the Advancement of Colored Peoples?    Perhaps the Congressional Black Caucus?   To advance what…..CRIME and Drug Dealing…..Fatherlessness?

And, one might ask, where in hell have conservatives been during that same time period to challenge the visciousness and evil  that seemed to escalate with every extra dollar spent to improve the BAD?

Dennis is a gentle man.   He writes as he conducts his outstanding radio show…..kindly, persuasively……….as if he seems interested in ‘converts’…..May God Bless Him.   But when will the patient who causes his own illness, wake up to see the crimes which cause the malady?

Maybe Minorities’ Values Need Changing

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

The most widely offered explanation for Mitt Romney’s defeat is that the Republican Party is disproportionately composed of — aging — white males.

That is, alas, true.

But the real question is what Republicans should do with this truth.

There are two responses.

The nearly universal response — meaning the response offered by the liberal media and liberal academics (and some Republicans) — is that the Republican Party needs to rethink its positions, moving away from conservatism and toward the political center.

The other response is for conservatives and the Republican Party to embark on a massive campaign to influence, and ultimately change, the values of those groups that voted Democrat.

The Democratic Party, and the left generally, have done a magnificent job in identifying conservative values as white male values. One reason for their success is that they dominate virtually every lever of influence — the high schools and universities, television, newspapers, movies, pop culture and everything else except talk radio. Another is that they really believe that conservative values are nothing more than white male — especially aging white male — values. Remember, leftism has its own trinity — the prism through which it perceives the world — race, gender and class. In this case the race is white; the gender is male; and the class is rich.

As a result of this identification, there is no debate over whether the minorities’ (and single women’s) values are correct or whether the values of the white males are correct. The left has successfully forestalled any such national discussion by simply reducing conservative values to the dying fulminations of a former ruling class.

In the words of New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, “Mitt Romney is the president of white male America.”

This identification seems to be working. But it’s intellectually dishonest. Aging white males are as important to the left as they are to the right.

In a recent issue of the New York Review of Books, liberal Harvard professor Benjamin M. Friedman strongly criticized the Tea Party. After citing “surveys showing that Tea Party members are ‘predominantly white, male, older, more college-educated and better off economically than typical Americans,'” he noted parenthetically “they sound like, say, readers of The New York Review of Books.”

Come to think of it, these people who make up the tea party also sound like the people who attend classical music concerts, who endow concert halls, museums, hospitals, and universities, and fund left-wing causes (George Soros, for example).

Perhaps when this generation of aging white males dies off, aging women, aging Latino and black males, and young people will become the readers of journals such as the New York Review of Books and endow symphony orchestras.

I suspect not. And if not, the left may come to regret its contempt for this particular group. Without aging white males, I doubt the New York Times would survive. How many young people, females, Hispanics and blacks subscribe to the New York Times?

Obviously the issue for the left isn’t aging white males, it is conservatives, whether they are young or old, white or nonwhite, male or female. If female aborigines were conservative, the left would have a problem with female aborigines.

For conservatives, the issue is that for generations now, they have failed to make the case for their values. They haven’t even conveyed conservative values to many of their children. And when they have, the university has often succeeded in undoing them.

The only answer to the “demographic” problem, therefore, is to bring women (single women, to be precise), young people, Hispanics, and blacks to conservative values. I wrote a column in September (“It’s not Just the Economy, Stupid!”) criticizing the Mitt Romney campaign for only talking about jobs and the economy. President Obama kept saying that this election was about two different visions of America. But like George Herbert Walker Bush, the Romney campaign appeared to disdain “the vision thing.”

Our only hope for America is that every conservative takes upon him or herself the project of learning what American and conservative values are, coming to understand what leftism stands for, and learning how to make the case for those values to women, young people, blacks and Hispanics. That is what my radio show, latest book and Prager University are about. And while I am, happily, hardly alone, there are still far too few of us who understand “the vision thing.” Surely the Republican establishment has not.

We should missionize for the American Trinity (Liberty, In God We Trust, E Pluribus Unum) as least as passionately as the left has missionized for its antithesis — Egalitarianism, Secularism and Multiculturalism. Or we will lose America as we have always known it.

Obama Begins to “Negotiate” Nation’s Financing by Threatening Nuclear War against GOP

Obama to open talks with

$1.6 trillion plan to raise taxes

on corporations, wealthy

by Zachary Goldfarb and Lori Montgomery     at  the Washington Post:

“President Obama is taking a hard line with congressional Republicans heading into negotiations over the year-end “fiscal cliff,” making no opening concessions and calling for far more in new taxes than Republicans have so far been willing to consider.

Obama plans to open talks using his most recent budget proposal, which sought to raise taxes on corporations and the wealthy by $1.6 trillion over the next decade, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday. That’s double the sum that House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) offered Obama during secret debt negotiations in 2011……Read more articles about the economic disaster looming over Obamaland  under the direction of  Obama central planning:



Obama has been pressing to let the George W. Bush-era tax cuts expire at the end of the year for the wealthiest 2 percent of the nation’s households, a tax hike adamantly opposed by Republicans. But Carney suggested that even the revenue generated by letting those tax cuts end would not be enough to tame the national debt and reenergize the economy.Meanwhile, Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner and other senior Democrats on Tuesday said Obama would not be willing to maintain the Bush tax rates in exchange for a cap on deductions for households earning more than $250,000 a year, a leading Republican alternative.

“I don’t see how you do this without higher rates. I don’t think there’s any feasible, realistic way to do it,” Geithner said at a conference in Washington. “When you take a cold, hard look at the amount of resources you can raise from that top 2 percent of Americans through limiting deductions, you will find yourself disappointed relative to the magnitude of the revenue increases that we need.”

Democrats said Obama is likely to maintain a tough stance Friday, when Boehner and other congressional leaders are due to gather at the White House for their first face-to-face discussions about how to avoid the fiscal cliff. Fresh off a resounding electoral victory in which they kept the White House and picked up seats in the House and Senate, Democrats said there is no reason to compromise now on a central plank of the president’s platform. 

“It was an intrinsic part of his campaign, and the public supports it. So what more do you want?” said Rep. Sander M. Levin (D-Mich.), the senior Democrat on the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee. 

GOP reaction

Although Republicans have offered fresh revenue in a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff, they have not proposed a specific target. Boehner suggested that negotiations resume on terms discussed in 2011, when he offered to raise $800 billion over the next decade through a rewrite of the tax code. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) endorsed that general idea Tuesday but warned Obama not to overplay his hand, noting that the president’s $1.6 trillion tax request failed to receive a single vote in Congress in the spring.

“We’re calling on him to lead, to take the initiative, propose a plan that’s actually designed to succeed,” McConnell said in a speech on the Senate floor. “I’m not asking the president . . . to adopt our principles. I’m simply asking him to respect our principles by not insisting that we compromise them. Because we won’t.”

Boehner spokesman Kevin Smith declined to comment directly on the president’s opening bid. “The Speaker proposed a way both parties can work together to avert the fiscal cliff without increased tax rates, through a combination of entitlement reforms and revenue via tax reform,” Smith said in a statement. “Republicans believe this is consistent with the president’s call for a ‘balanced’ approach, and the Speaker looks forward to talking with the president about such a path.”

The public is skeptical that a deal can be reached. By 51 percent to 38 percent, more Americans predict Obama and Republicans will not reach an agreement by the end of the year, according to a new Washington Post-Pew Research Center poll. The survey found widespread anxiety over the consequences of failure.”


The Human Battle of Good versus Evil Continues

The most important issue of any civilized community’s agenda anywhere,  at anytime is the nature of it’s battles against evil by the good.

Evil is not driven by the good.   Evil is classic throughout the centuries of human ‘thinking’.     I am a devoted believer in the ancient Greek adage……”There is neither good or bad.   Only thinking makes it so”.     Once this bizarre human animal  through the millenium of its development began to add  thought and reason to his reptroire of his thoughtless actions needed for his survival as a species, evil began its ‘wicked web we weave, when we firtt practice to deceive”.

As Dennis Prager constantly reminds his audience of the obvious, ‘evil folks can do good, good folks can do evil’. For that very reason a culture must be taught the differences between these poles.

Therein lies the rub in American which has elevated Barack Hussein Obama and his Marxist minions to the heights they now occupy in the once liberty oriented, our United States of America.

Dishonesty, deceit, capture of the public mind through its control over the nation’s  insitutions of propagande, currently more of the con-artistry than the bloody tyranny of Stalinist Soviet-determined  truth and consequences has become the  gospel of the Obamaling America.

Machievelli has fnally arrived in America by way of Kenya, Indonesia, Hawaii and Chicago.

Good people, wishful people, hardworing people, unemployed people, these civilized German people voted for Adolph Hitler in early 1930 ‘to solve Germany’s problems of collapse and disorder, degradation and despair.

On November 6, 2012  60,000,000 Americans,  the dead and alive,  won America by defeating 58,000,000  Americans many, perhaps most of whom  have come to be  hated by the political leaders of the victorious.

This  hate is contrived politically for reasons evil, but has been spread universally by those in a free society who should know better.   

Knowledge, however, needs to be learned by each generation by the one previous.   It is not genetically transfered.    Hate is inherent in us all,  ready to be called upon  especially when hate  determines  a political agenda as has happened over the past four years of Nazi-like  psychology and p9litics of Barack Hussein Obama and his obamaling followers.

There is much for God-fearing Americans, Christian and others, to hate regarding this ever growing Obamaling threat to the basic elements of American tradition……. our belief in God’s classic good,  mankind’s liberty and our American  pursuit of happiness as we view it within a safe,  civil, and productive  community.

It is my prayer that the conservative victims of ‘ObamaCare’ dictatorship  over our American life, is that we do not join these enemies of liberty in the pigsties of  the Marxist evils  which seem to appeal to our re-elected leader, Barack Hussein Obama and his allies at university, the mainstream media,  and the thugs among  the tribes he has created  to enforce his will upon his subjects.

America rejected the  many ethical and governing strengths of one of the finest men ever to run for the nation’s Presidency,  Mitt Romney.    Let  us not forget the honor his role in this contest persisted to maintain.    

May we understand that it is the nation’s confusion and ignorance  about the differences  between classic good and evil that propels evil to rule……at any level in the life of a free society.

I received the following tribute to Mitt Romney from a number of  my conservative friends.   I place it here as our tribute to a truly honorable, worthy, Christian man……Mitt Romney!

* * * * * * * * *

Thanks !        Mitt!
This is a thank you note to a good
Thank you for turning aside from a life of ease and security to run for the presidency against an incumbent.
Thank you for enduring the slander of you, your family, and your faith perpetrated by a criminally negligent media.
Thank you for calling things such as terrorism’ by their right name.
Thank for selecting Paul Ryan as vice presidential running mate.
Thank you — and your lovely wife — for demonstrating true love.
Thank you for handling yourself with grace and equanimity in every situation.
Thank you for your patriotism.
Thank you for believing in America.  It is to our eternal shame that America did not, in this time and place, believe in you.

Obama’s ABC Media: There may be a Doc Problem in America’s Future

Doc Shortage Could Crash Health Care

By NISHA NATHAN, M.D. |      from  ABC News

The United States will require at least 52,000 more family doctors in the year 2025 to keep up with the growing and increasingly older U.S. population, a new study found.

The predictions also reflect the passage of the Affordable Care Act — a change that will expand health insurance coverage to an additional 38 million Americans.

“The health care consumer that values the relationship with a personal physician, particularly in areas already struggling with access to primary care physicians should be aware of potential access challenges that they may face in the future if the production of primary care physicians does not increase,” said Dr. Andrew Bazemore, director of the Robert Graham Center for Policy Studies in Primary Care and co-author of the study published Monday in the Annals of Family Medicine.

Stephen Petterson, senior health policy researcher at the Robert Graham Center, said the government should take steps — and quickly — to address the problem before it gets out of hand.

“There needs to be more primary care incentive programs that give a bonus to physicians who treat Medicaid patients in effort to reduce the compensation gap between specialists and primary care physicians,” said Petterson, who co-authored the study with Bazemore.

But such changes may be more easily said than done.

The problem does not appear to be one of too few doctors in general; in fact, in 2011 a total of 17,364 new doctors emerged from the country’s medical schools, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). Too few of these doctors, however, choose primary care as a career — an issue that may be worsening.

In a 2008 census by the AAMC and the American Medical Association, researchers found that the number of medical graduates choosing a career in family medicine dropped from 5,746 in 2002 to 4,210 in 2007 — a drop of nearly 27 percent.

“It’s pretty tough to convince medical students to go into primary care,” said Dr. Lee Green, chair of Family Medicine at the University of Alberta, who was not involved with the study.

Green added that he believes this is because currently primary care specialties are not well paid, well treated or respected as compared to subspecialists.

“They have to think about their debt,” he said. “There are also issues of how physicians are respected and how we portray primary care to medical students.”

These problems loom even larger considering the aim of the Affordable Care Act to provide all Americans with health insurance — and with it, more regular contact with a primary care doctor.

Perhaps the best known example of this approach has been Massachusetts, which since 2006 has mandated that every resident obtain health insurance and those that are below the federal poverty level gain free access to health care. But although the state has the second-highest ratio of primary care physicians to population of any state, they are struggling with access to primary care physicians.

Dr. Randy Wexler of The John Glenn Institute of Public Service and Policy said he has concerns that this trend could be reflected nationwide.

“Who is going to care for these people?” he said. “We are going to have problems just like Massachusetts. [They] are struggling with access problems; it takes one year to get into a primary care physician. Coverage does not equal access.”

Some have already proposed solutions to this looming problem. One suggestion is that non-physician medical professionals, such as nurse practitioners and physician assistants, can pick up the slack. Doctors, however, said his may not be enough to fill the gap.

“It would take 10 nurse practitioners to equal one primary care graduate, based on volume,” Wexler said.

Another potential solution is patient-centered homes, where everyone works on a team in effort to increase the number of patients per provider. Some patients can be served by a computer online portal or a phone encounter when feasible to decrease the number of physician visits.

Most experts encourage consumers to challenge the current system, hold political leaders accountable, insist that government officials demand change in health care system design, policy, and reimbursement, along with medical school admissions and residency position allocations.

But whatever the solution, Wexler said something should be done, and as soon as possible.

“Looking at shear reality, we can’t turn on a spigot and drop out new doctors,” he said. “Expect long waits if we cannot figure out how to resolve it, the only place left to go for primary care will be the emergency room.”

Green’s outlook was not as rosy.

“[Patients] won’t be able to see a primary care physician hardly,” he said. “Primary care will be past saturated with wait times longer and will not accept any new patients. There will be an increase in hospitalizations and increase in death rates for basic preventable things like hypertension that was not managed adequately.”

Missing the Boat Isn’t Always ‘Missing the Boat’

Missing the Boat

by Richard Hernandez   at   Pajamas Media:

“The Smithsonian magazine has an article about seven famous people who might have sailed on the Titanic but who, for some reason or other, missed the boat. They included Theodore Dreiser, Guglielmo Marconi, Milton Hershey, J. Pierpoint Morgan, Henry Frick, and Alfred Vanderbilt.

Dreiser had shifted to the Kroonland to save money. Hershey, of candy bar fame, had the money and had actually made a deposit on a ticket, but some business matter detained him and he had to cancel. What seemed like bad luck at the time actually turned out to be good fortune. Had things proved otherwise, the Titanic would have proved an even bigger disaster; our grandfathers might have grown up in a world without Hershey’s bars.
