I am not a nationalist. Far, far from it. However, I am shocked that with the waffling of Obama over the past year no American politician has come out as a staunch and harsh hawk. If someone appealing did (I am not talking John McCain) I think they would receive a lot of traction.
I do not like that the country is ripe for that; but I call it as I see it. People say we are reaching a libertarian moment. We very well could be. But I see it more as a pendulum moment. The hammer is going to come down on one side of a scale, the question is which will it reach first.
Elizabeth Warren has some choice words for companies that move their headquarters overseas to dodge taxes. (Graphic via AFSCME)
Liberals: “If you don’t want to pay taxes, then leave!”
American Companies: “OK.” *leaves*
Liberals: “STOP BETRAYING YOUR COUNTRY”
Liz Warren has spent her life receiving a salary from a place that has $30 Billion in the bank, owns some of the highest valued real estate in Massachusetts, price gouges its customers for the product it sells and… wait for it… pays NO TAXES.
Yes, I am talking about Harvard. She has no credibility to speak on corporations dodging taxes. Academia - and the damage it is doing monetarily to young Americans (I will not even start on mentally) - is one of the biggest frauds in this country.
Great find. An early portfolio of portraits, battle field photos, and maps from the First World War. Needs rebinding, but still outstanding. Every photo in it is worth framing. Hundreds I have never seen before.
Despite Al Gore’s prediction that these fellas would be sea creatures right now, the Arctic ice cap has grown drastically over the last two years. How much so? The ice added to the caps could fill the entire state of Alaska… twice.
When I was in college back in 2008 I had a whacko left wing foreign policy professor who moonlighted as a Boston Globe writer. This individual and several of their co leftist faculty members held a forum one day on the “Genius Of President Elect Obama.”
I remember their theory on Obama as quite chilling. According to them, Obama was intended as a Gorbachev figure for America. They said Obama would surrender America’s world power, and the power of capitalism, by drawing inward the same way Gorbachev did for the Soviet Union and communism.
At the time I laughed them off as the nuts they are. But now, as we continually call Obama “incompetent” and “incapable” I am starting to flash back to that forum. I am fearing that Obama is not incompetent, but instead intentionally withdrawing American might from world affairs. ISIS wants to kill people? So be it by their leftist surrender doctrine. Better that ISIS runs the world than a capitalist system.
I thought it was fucked up that those Professors thought America needed a “Gorbachev moment” and now I fear the President may be just as nuts.
