At least our state budget is getting better. Thanks Governor Walker!
A young college student comes home for a visit and tells her father what is all wrong about America. She feels that the country should be based on the Socialist scale so that everyone will be equal. Her father ignores her excitement and her new found “expert” knowledge.
Instead he says, “How did you do on your finals?” She replies, “I did just great – I got an “A” in all subjects.”
Her father proudly says, “That is just great – you must have worked hard, studied hard, and prepared for your test.”
“Oh, I did she said. I stayed up until all hours and crammed until I knew everything on the test. I didn’t go anywhere, skipped meals and kept my head in my books!”
“I am so proud of you daughter; but how did your roommate do?”
“Ah, she didn’t do so well.” The father then says, “Why don’t you talk to the dean and tell him that you feel bad for your roommate; and you would like to have your two grades averaged together so that you can share your grade to help pull up hers to passing?”
“What…? She replied with an exaggerated tone.
“I should give her part of my hard earned grades when she sat on her rump, watched TV, went to parties, didn’t crack open and book and I AM TO SHARE WITH HER?”
“NO WAY. I worked for my grades and she did nothing.”
Her father patted her on the back and replied, “Welcome to the world of capitalism, sweetheart!”
Having attained power in late 1917 on a raft of promises — land to Russia’s peasants, bread to Russia’s starving cities and peace to Russia’s World War I-weary soldiers — V.I. Lenin was able to dispense with every one of them by advancing civil war from 1918 to 1921 to justify his acts by crisis.
In place of promises of liberty and rights, Lenin gave Russians propaganda, empowering the Bolsheviks to govern through knoutish messages, if not the barrel of the gun. In so doing, he sought to undermine Russia’s weak democracy and to transform society fundamentally.
“The Russian Revolution was permeated with propaganda of a forceful and brutal kind,” wrote historian Dmitri Volkogonov in his 1995 “Lenin: Life and Legacy,” based on materials briefly available from the Soviet archives.
The propaganda was used not so much to win people over with ideas but by bludgeoning them with coercion, repression and making examples.

I’ve just watched the latest Rolling Stone video on climate change featuring an exclusive hour-long interview with President Obama – and I’m scared. Really scared.
The first thing that scares me is what it says about the decline of journalism generally and at Rolling Stone in particular.
Can this really be the same magazine that launched Hunter S Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which employed Lester Bangs, Joe Klein, Joe Eszterhas and PJ O’Rourke, and which gave us that OK-ish Cameron Crowe movie where the autobiographical hero never got to sleep with Kate Hudson?
And oughtn’t Rolling Stone to be trying to raise the bar rather than lower it after the appalling fiasco of its UVA rape story reportage?
But the thing that ought to scare us all far more than any of the above is the insight it offers into the terrifyingly desperate lengths to which President Obama and his fellow travellers are now prepared to go in order to advance the green agenda.

Election of our nation’s first black president is delivering an unexpected message to our black population.
Blacks are discovering that what a man or woman does — their actions — is what matters, not the color of their skin.
It seems ridiculous to point out that this was supposedly the point of the civil rights movement. Purge racism from America.
But blacks themselves have been the ones having the hardest time letting it go.
It is not hard to understand why black Americans were happy that a black man was elected president of the United States. It was kind of a final and most grand announcement that racism has finally been purged from America.
But for the highly politicized parts of black America this was certainly not the only message. Because for the highly politicized parts of black America, the point has always been to keep race in American politics.
