What a difference a simple majority makes: The (at least) two faces of Paul Krugman

Above is the face of Paul Krugman people see on TV in the New York Times, but the man has (at least) two. Depending upon which party is in power, he is of two faces on the filibuster.  Just see the examples below. (Brought to our attention by a friend.)

Here he is on March 29, 2005:

“But the big step by extremists will be an attempt to eliminate the filibuster, so that the courts can be packed with judges less committed to upholding the law than Mr. Greer.”

And here he is yesterday:

“Senators themselves should recognize this fact and push through changes in those rules, including eliminating or at least limiting the filibuster. This is something they could and should do, by majority vote, on the first day of the next Senate session.”

The only thing that has changed between then and now is which party controls the Senate and by how much, specifically the election of Senator Scott Brown from Massachusetts.

I would ask how Krugman can look at anyone with a straight face, but he probably has a third face for just that occasion.

Janeane Garofalo has two standards, one for her elite friends and one for you.

Former comedian Janeane Garofalo and former sports comedienne Keith Uberdouche, er, Olbermann, had a conversation last week that exposed the world to the fact that not only are they raging hypocrites, but they’ve clearly suffered closed head injuries in the past few years.  Well, now we have a window of time.  Seems they forgot all about the older conversation in this exchange, so that would put the accident (which we assume both are) sometime between then and now. 

Note the use of Nazi type propaganda.  If you don’t get that reference, go look up some history.

Liberals and taxes – it’s their money, they are just allowing you to keep some of it…for now.

This is how scummy these rich liberals are.  They live like kings, shelter their money in trust funds while creating a permanent dependent class of Americans who will never live the American Dream they have for no other reason than they’ve been told they can’t succeed, that the deck is stacked against them, that they NEED government, and they bought it.  Those that don’t buy it succeed.  There’s enough guilt to go around to both liberals and those that quit, but the blame is all on the empty heads of liberals.

Camille Paglia dares to speak the truth about liberals.

Kudos to Camille Paglia, the often right and always entertaining professor with we regularly disagree but never find disagreeable, for having the courage to call American liberals out for what they really are.

Yes, something very ugly has surfaced in contemporary American liberalism, as evidenced by the irrational and sometimes infantile abuse directed toward anyone who strays from a strict party line. Liberalism, like second-wave feminism, seems to have become a new religion for those who profess contempt for religion. It has been reduced to an elitist set of rhetorical formulas, which posit the working class as passive, mindless victims in desperate need of salvation by the state. Individual rights and free expression, which used to be liberal values, are being gradually subsumed to worship of government power.

We know and have known many people like this, with whom a rational conversation is impossible, people who run out of things to say once they’ve used up all the “facts” they read in the latest issue of The Nation, Mother Jones or Newsweek.  The inability of these people to thing beyond what they’re fed, to extrapolate beyond talking points they’re read or to have a coversation that doesn’t end in anger and name-calling on their part is why we don’t miss the ones we knew and won’t the ones we know, should it come to that.  Paglia, on the other hand, is welcome to join us for a beer any time.

New York Lefties want to take more from the rich to avoid having to contribute themselves.

liberals_20copyrqikiq

Lefties in New York are up in arms over the prospect of having some of the state’s bloated budget trimmed to the point it is mildly affordable.  Telling is the fact that unions and community groups (think ACORN) rallied, calling on Governor Patterson to raise taxes on people making over $250,000 so they can keep getting benefits.

“For those of you who prosper during boom time, we ask them pay a little bit more. Pay a little more so New York can avoid cutting the services that our most vulnerable need,” United Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten said.

Just a little more!  What a joke.  How much does Randi Weingarten make and how much does she give to charity?  Does she make more money than she “needs”?  She’s a parasite.

Here’s an idea, since 40 percent of families don’t pay any federal income tax, how about we actually tax them?  That’s a lot of poeple, so a small tax will rake in a lot of money to help provide the free services they feel the need to take to the streets to protect.

That will never happen, the point of protests like this is because people want stuff for free.  Liberals created this dependent class, now it’s coming back to bite them.  They’ve removed so many people from the “contributor” column to the “taking” column that there isn’t enough people to take from to give to the people used to getting.  The scales are tipping.

Too bad liberals have no plan b or magic to get blood from a stone because there simply aren’t enough “rich” to fulfill their left-wing promises.

AFL-CIO Leadership to workers – Let them eat cake!

When will Members of Congress decry this?  Under the theory of “you never bite the hand that feeds you,” we’ll guess never.  Such hypocrisy!

The racism of Keith Olberman and Janeane Garofalo exposed…with humor.

Remember when Janeane Garofalo was funny?  Don’t worry, we barely do either.  Remember when Keith Uberdouche talked about subjects he knew a thing or two about?  Hint: it was when he was on ESPN.

Well, those days are long gone.  Now they just spew racism under the banner of tolerance, and the Left says nothing.  According to them all black people have to think alike, think like they do.  Nothing racist there, right?  Yeah.

Watch them get picked apart.
