Is the Drug War a Way to Wage Class Warfare?

Is the drug war really being waged in an equitable fashion? Or is it being used to single out poor people? Some conservatives lean libertarian on recreational drugs. Others are in favor of criminalization, but don’t want our constitutional rights eroded the way that the War on Drugs has eaten into them. I’m not arguing for decriminalizing anything in this post, but I do think that all conservatives need to insist on equality before the law. Of course, not all races show the same general Read more […]

Berkeley Pilots Brilliant Method for Building Permanent Caste System: Pot for the Poor

Berkeley, California, has, I think, revealed where the current wave of pot legalization is headed. I have to say, I’m impressed with the diabolical snare they have invented in order to maintain a caste system and ensure that the poor and homeless remain content with their lot in life. The last thing we want, as I write during this July 4th weekend, are poor people getting ambitious! According to the San Francisco CBS affiliate: The city of Berkeley will require medical marijuana dispensaries Read more […]

Seattle Minimum Wage Law Is How Some Businesses Try to Destroy Other Businesses

Supreme Court Leaves Gun Owners Under Thumb of Legislatures, and Middle Class Disarmed Before the Rich

Dear Tom Perkins: Why Comparing Hatred Of The Rich To Nazism Is Misguided

Tom, I had never heard of you before I read about you at Newser: A billionaire venture capitalist has sparked a furor with a worried letter to the Wall Street Journal. In the brief piece, Tom Perkins notes “the parallels of fascist Nazi Germany (and) its war on its ‘one percent,’ namely its Jews, to the progressive war on the American one percent, namely the ‘rich.'” He continues: “From the Occupy movement to the demonization of the rich embedded in virtually every word of our local newspaper, the Read more […]

Obama Blissfully Unaware of His Own Class Envy Campaign?

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Obama opined, “And I don’t think you or anybody who’s been watching the campaign would say that in any way we have tried to divide the country. We’ve always tried to bring the country together.” Seriously? He doesn’t think anybody would say that? Oh, what he probably meant was, “I don’t think anybody would say I’m trying to divide the country… No, no… pretty much everybody—not just anybody—has said that.” Just to clear it up Read more […]
