“At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child – miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosphy of sniveling brats.”
— P.J. O’Rourke

"No society can long thrive by making its creators and innovators subservient to its pimps and thieves."
Chelsea Clinton, from her $10.5 million perch on Gramercy Park, declares that she finds it impossible to care about money. Bill and Hillary Clinton, shuttling between their multimillion-dollar homes — Chappaqua, Washington, the $200,000-a-month rental in the Hamptons — denounce the wicked rich and protest that they are not “truly well off.” A professor of poverty and left-wing activist at the University of North Carolina School of Law is paid $20...

The Obama VA cares more about windmills and solar panels than the policies that are putting vets in the grave.

I think posts about Barry are very pertinent since his administration has spent money on just about everything except cutting edge nuclear power research.  LIFTR could have been pushed to the forefront, but it was simply not popular with the left.  It puts things in perspective.  Additionally, Kirk is is entitled to his opinion on his own page.  Scientists are people too.

There can't be war in Iraq.  Obama said it was over.  Why won't Islamic terrorists just listen to him?  Is it because Americans are so mean?
;Leon Trotsky probably did not quite write the legendary aphorism that “you may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you.” But whoever did, you get the point that no nation can

Sorry, but this article is simply wrong.  There was no relative peace in Europe under the 3rd Reich in 1941.  What should be done now is to recognize that the Kurds, Shia and Sunni cannot currently work together, thanks to the current Iraqi government.  We should stay out of this, just as we should never have invaded.  This is their war, not ours.  I think you should stick to Thorium issues as that is your expertise, and that is why you are respected by many, including myself.

If you put socialists in charge of the Sahara, pretty soon it would run out of sand.

The actual governments of Venezuela, Argentina, Brazil and Bolivia are causing a huge damage to their economical future. It is very sad, considering the huge potential of the region, especially Argentina and Brazil.

I would not be surprised if we find out 10-20 years from now that her "blood clot" really was a stroke. It's not the first time the public has been lied to about a potential candidates health.

Sure must be fun for the Obama's to spend our money.  Can't wait til they're gone.
The Obamas have spent over 44 million dollars in taxpayer money on travel and vacations. Some are even calling him the

This reminds me of a meme that was floated here in germany a couple of years ago: Germany had the highest tax revenue ever. Unfortunately there was no relative context given. Everyone knows that by the numbers the highest tax revenue Germany had must have been in 1923 ... Yes the money was not worth a lot but just by the numbers it was more than ever or hopefully ever will be...
So adjusted for inflation and so on and so forth how does this compare to the other. That is the relevant question. Who knows? Relative to inflation and GNP Kennedy or F.D.R. or Lincoln or who ever could be the worst offender... (Not that I want do apologize throwing money out of the window.)

And thank you for your hard work in changing the public perspective on nuclear power. Its only a matter of time.

There's always money to pay off the person they hope will be our next president.  But cut tuition?  Heaven forbid!
At time of austerity, colleges spent top dollar for potential 2016 presidential candidate to speak on campus

As a fee, it's very expensive.

As a pre-emptive bribe, it's very cheap and easily defended.

Salon attacks Mitt.  He must be doing something right.  They should spend more time trying to prop up that pathetic excuse of a president they helped to slide into office.
Mitt Romney's purported comeback is capturing the hearts and minds of the media. Here's why it's absolutely insane

The reason Romney has "momentum" is because America has had two more years to regret Obama.  As Ed Koch once said, "the people have spoken, and now they must be punished."

And what is the common denominator in these murderous acts in many countries?  It dare not be mentioned.
GRAPHIC CONTENT WARNING: The attack in Mpeketoni, which is about 30-miles southwest of the tourist centre of Lamu, came at the end of a weekend of bloodshed that has exposed the world to the shocking depravity of terrorists who appear emboldened by each other's acts.

Another one of the Dear Leader's many accomplishments.
People no longer think the future will be better than the present.

"Legal plunder appeals to envious and resentful people who want to see the successful pulled down and their wealth redistributed to themselves."
Statists need a constant parade of hobgoblins and pseudo-crises to keep voters clamoring for more government and Thomas Piketty has given them a big, fat one: Tax the rich or else frightful things will happen to society!
