Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Barone: Public unions are simply taxpayers funding the DNC

Well-put and unassailable logic…which, of course, means the left will reject it.  Excerpt:

The most important factual problem with Dionne’s argument is that he doesn’t mention where the money public employee unions contribute to Democrats comes from. Let me refer him to these words from my Examiner column last Wednesday:

Taxpayers, present and future, . . . are the source of every penny of dues paid to public employee unions, who in turn spend much of that money on politics, almost all of it for Democrats. In effect, public employee unions are a mechanism by which every taxpayer is forced to fund the Democratic Party.

My question to E. J. Dionne: What’s the public policy argument for taxpayer funding of one of two major political parties?

If public employee unions are donating all of their money to Democrats, and if my taxpayer dues are funding public employees who belong to said unions, why in the h3ll am I to be expected to fund a party that I feel is destroying my country?

Quote of the day, “Babs Boxer cracks up on Senate floor” edition

Cali, you had a chance to kick this crazy wench to the curb last November, and you passed.  She’s all yours, chumps.

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that House Republicans want to strip government funding of PBS because they have a “vendetta against Elmo.”

Boxer made the comments during a floor speech where she made the case for her bill that would ensure that the president and lawmakers are not paid if a government shutdown occurs.

Boxer said that the cost of four hours of the Iraq war would be enough to keep PBS funded — and the popular fire-red children’s character on the air.

Boxer believes that the GOP has more than just a vendetta against Elmo. She added that Republicans hold a “vendetta against healthcare” and a “vendetta against clean energy.”

House Republicans last month passed a bill that would strip government funding for both National Public Radio and PBS.

Well, crap!  There goes that coveted and potent kindergarten voting block.

Black House members: GOP budget that trims federal spending just a tad is proof that the GOP hates black people. Or something.

Trying to get your debt under control is racist.  Numbers are racist.  Just like the GOP, or something.  From The Hill:

Black lawmakers on Monday said GOP-proposed budget cuts would move the country in the opposite direction of the civil rights movement.

The lawmakers, all members of the Congressional Black Caucus, used the last day of Black History Month to argue the GOP-backed cuts would fall hardest on black Americans.

“It’s really especially poignant that this year during Black History Month, the Republican leadership has proposed a budget for fiscal year 2011 that will fall most heavily, mind you, on the backs of the most vulnerable in our society: African Americans, Latinos, and poor, those who have been shut of the American dream,” said Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), who described the cuts as ill-timed and destructive.

“At a time when we should be remembering and uplifting the accomplishments and contributions of African Americans, to the history, culture, civil rights and economy of America, we are literally during this month debating steps that will severely undercut and undermine that legacy,” she said.

Lee also criticized Republicans for saying “so be it” when asked their reaction to the idea that cuts to government spending might hurt U.S. job growth. “So be it,” she repeated. “That’s not what the Civil Rights movement was about.”

Nope, apparently “what the Civil Rights movement was about” was federal spending into insolvency and making black Americans slaves to the federal government.  I don’t recall seeing that in my history books growing up.  Guess I should Google it.

Anyway, just last night, I was trying to balance my checkbook, and I decided that with gas and groceries being more expensive, it wouldn’t be a good idea to buy those Starbucks mochas every day.  I didn’t realize that I was being racist for exhibiting financial common sense like that.  That sucks.
