Ali Akbar Letter to Morgan Freemen

This is an excerpt from the letter by Ali Akbar, a black tea party activist to Morgan Freeman. It is a great letter, and I hope you will click the link to read it all.Over half a century since we started voting for Democrat policies, blacks in America are worse off than before. Black Americans are more likely to get involved with drugs, go to prison, and die younger than our white counterparts. Over 70% of our children are born out of wedlock. Our abortion rate has never been higher. There are two explanations for these results. 1) Blacks are an inferior race and can’t take care of themselves. 2) Despite the best of intentions, the government has created and implemented “social justice” policies that promote perpetual dependence. I choose to believe the latter. Therefore, I have become a Republican.

Mr. Freeman, I’m not asking you to adopt my political views. You’re in your seventies, and a political shift is not in your future. I’m reaching out to you because I want you to think bet…

Tea Party Candidate Herman Cain wins Florida Straw Poll: Black Caucusers Still Think Tea Party is Racist

One of the Tea Party's favorite candidates, Herman Cain, won the Florida straw poll by a large margin. Yet, Big Government is showing a series of interviews from the Black Caucus convention in which interviewees routinely claim that racism "underlies" the tea party, even if it is not overtly racist. Story here.

The tea party issues are all about smaller government, lower taxes and fiscal responsibility. The reasoning of the black caucausers seems to be that the Tea party must be racist because it did not spring up until Barack Obama was president.

Newsflash to the Black Caucus: Barack Obama is a big government, bid spending liberal. The tea parties sprang up after the House passage of Obama's pork-filled stimulus bill, which was a big government solution to economic problems best solved by smaller government. Race has nothing to do with the widespread public dissatisfaction with the president, then or now.

It is of course ironic that the exclusively Black Caucu…

The clip below was recorded in 1999, but the interview information is still fresh. And still beyond the comprehension of President Obama and his cronies.

How The government Can Help Job Creation: Get Out of the Way!

The following written testimony was entered into the record of the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Regulatory Affairs, Stimulus Oversight and Government Spending hearing.How the Government Can Create Jobs
September 13, 2011

Mr. Chairman, Mr. Ranking member, and all distinguished members of this panel. Thank you for inviting me here today to offer my opinions as to how the government can help the American economy recover from the worst crisis in living memory.

Despite the understandable human tendency to help others, government spending cannot be a net creator of jobs. Indeed many efforts currently under consideration by the Administration and Congress will actively destroy jobs. These initiatives must stop. While it is easy to see how a deficit-financed government program can lead to the creation of a specific job, it is much harder to see how other jobs are destroyed by the diversion of capital and resources. It is also difficult to see how the bigger budget deficits sap the…

Quote of the Day: National Review

Moron of the Day: Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL and DNC Chairman)

I am starting to see the light. Fuzz-head Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-NY and DNC Chair) OWNS our Moron of the Day title. This time, it is her comment on GOP candidate Bob Turner's upset victory in the special election to replace Anthony Weiner in a New York City congressional district. Democratic party leaders insisted the loss wasn't a harbinger of things to come. "It's a very difficult district for Democrats,'' said Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, noting its Democratic margins there tend to be the second lowest of all the districts in New York City. Registered Democrats outnumber Republicans 3 to 1 in the district. To a fuzzy-headed Democrat, that is a difficult district? Does reality have any place in the thinking of the DNC chair?

It getting tiresome having to constantly congratulate fuzz-head Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, our most frequent (and best deserved) Moron of the Day.

President Obama's "Jobs" Speech

In his so called jobs speech, at least he was consistent. He got pretty much everything wrong. What this country needs is not so much a stimulus, but a, yes I'm saying it, dismantling of government interference with innovation, initiative, confifence in the future.

Yes,government really is the problem. Every attempted government solution is doomed to fail.

The president's solutions are more of the programs that did not work in 2009, 2010, or the gret depression.

Dumb. Lord help us.

The President's Speech

From Patterico.com: I just presented my wife with a proposal that I buy me a shiny new car I can’t afford. I asked her if she is going to put family first and approve my proposal now.

It is a bipartisan proposal, even though she doesn’t agree with it, because the word bipartisan sounds good.

And it won’t cost us a cent, because my proposal pays for the car, through unspecified cuts in the “out years.”

One of my bipartisan proposals to pay for my shiny new car includes my wife taking on a second job and not spending any money on new clothes.

She’s not buying my proposal. In fact, there is no such proposal. I made it up for rhetorical purposes. Not that I’m that enamored of my 11-year-old car with 130,000 miles. Here’s the problem. I’m not going to do something we can’t afford and justify it with phony arguments and lies.

Read that last sentence out loud three times, Mr. President.

Sounded nice, huh?

That would have been a better speech.Click on Patterico.com above for the comments.

Peolsi: Republicans Insult Obama By Refusing to Go Public With Jobs Speech Disagreementsementw with HIm public

Fox News is reporting that the Republicans will not give a public rebuttal to the president's jobs speech. Nancty Pelosi says that is disrepectful. Do we need any more proof the Nancy Pelosi is nuts? Republicans have decided they're not going to give a rebuttal to President Obama's jobs speech later this week, a decision House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi took as a high affront to the White House.

...

Pelosi said the party's "silence" would "speak volumes about their lack of commitment to creating jobs."

"The Republicans' refusal to respond to the president's proposal on jobs is not only disrespectful to him, but to the American people," Pelosi said.

But Boehner spokesman Mike Steel said Obama's proposals on Thursday "will rise or fall on their own merits," suggesting a GOP response was not needed. I'm sorry, but that is just weird. Nancy Pelosi wants someone to rebut the President? Out of respect? Publi…

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz's Non-Answer

Is DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz truly horrible in this clip? Ir is it just me? I think when a politician is asked a difficult question, they give a truthful answer to the question asked. I understand they will spin it a bit, but ANSWER THE QUESTION.



This only thing I can conclude from this clip is that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz officially endorses Jimmy Hoffa's rhetoric of violence.

Of course as we have repeatedly pointed out in this blog, Ms. Wasserman-Schultz is a fuzz-head. that was probably the best she could do given her minimal level of skills. Not the best anyone could do. The best she could do.

Tea Party Racism?
