Steynian 249

Mark Steyn on the AIG bailout:

“The old line on imprudent debt went something like: If you owe the bank a thousand dollars, you have a problem; if you owe the bank a million dollars, the bank has a problem. We seem to have casually accepted the extension of the paradigm: If the bank loans you a million dollars, the bank has a problem. If the bank loans you a billion dollars, the US government has a problem.”

“.. To the extent that identity matters in our post-colonial, post-imperial age of collective guilt, Westerners honor only purported victims of our past sins. People of color, non-Christians, women, and gays, all are encouraged to showcase their “difference” in agitating for “equality,” and for a sort of reparation, either material (through affirmative action) or psychosocial (through white guilt and shame)….”

Islam’s war on freedom


One thought on “Steynian 249

    (& supports the “rights” of youngsters to view it!)

    Google “Zombietime” and click on “Up Your Alley Fair.” (This is Pelosi’s territory, and San Francisco mayor Newsom told cops at the Fair to NOT arrest anyone exercising the “rights” Obama approves of!) After recovering from the uncensored photos, Yahoo “God to Same-Sexers: Hurry Up” on the “ucmpage” listing (even Jesus told Judas to hurry up – John 13:27). Also Yahoo “Dangerous Radicals of the Religious Right.” See all of this before the “God” named in all 50 US state constitutions responds with quakes, hurricanes and other bad news. Gaydom’s goal is to flaunt its depravity everywhere on earth IN FRONT OF CHILDREN while normal folks stay asleep and do nothing! New pro-life slogan: “Unborn children should have the same right to be born alive that abortionists have had!”

    (Obama and his public-porn-protecting collaborators, Pelosi and Newsom, did NOT approve of this message.)
