“How dare you be black and anti-Obama!”
Obama plays a similar trick with IRAs.
ending federal bureaucrats to meddle in newsroom affairs by conducting an alleged “study” will chill news coverage and make government-licensed broadcast media think twice about airing stories that place the Obama administration in a bad light.
By saying, “I must give back,” a person is essentially acknowledging, “I stole something.”
What we need is a law — or a Constitutional amendment, if need-be — ensuring freedom of association. In other words, all individual citizens should be guaranteed the right to associate, or not associate, with whom they choose.
Individual liberty, freedom and private property — including the most precious right of free speech – are not frozen in place forever. Government will always test its limits and watch how we respond.
The Republican Party is dying from an internal contradiction. On the one hand, it claims to want freedom and individual rights. On the other hand, it embraces fundamentalist religion as the basis for civilization.
Obama’s strength, if you wish to call it that, arises from the ideological weakness of his political opponents — and the personal weakness of his most loyal constituents.
Without the right to one’s property (including one’s wealth), any right to privacy is irrelevant and nonexistent.
We’re living under the blossoming dictatorship of a petulant child.
Without collectivism, no racism is possible.
Pope Francis hasn’t united liberals and conservatives. They’re already united on the basic issue of morality.
Production is what makes all consumption, including charity, possible.
To be a true hero and leader, Mandela would have inspired South Africa–and the rest of the world–to rise to the standard of individual rights.

Will the doctors finally stand up for themselves then? Or will they humbly and meekly take it?
There are basically two sets of viewpoints influencing most people in America today. You might call them the “red state” (Republican) or “blue state” (Democratic) mentalities, although it’s far deeper than politics.
Emotional charges of racism? What a convenient way to escape defense of your own flawed viewpoints.
Give thanks…to the rational man.
