Soft Choices Have Hard Consequences

Mark Steyn: Due diligence never done on Obama

“The way I think about it,” Barack Obama told a TV station in Orlando, “is, you know, this is a great, great country that had gotten a little soft.”

He has a point. This is a great, great country that got so soft that 53 percent of electors voted for a ludicrously unqualified chief executive who would be regarded as a joke candidate in any serious nation. One should not begrudge a man who seizes his opportunity. But one should certainly hold in contempt those who allow him to seize it on the basis of such flaccid generalities as “hope” and “change”: That’s more than “a little” soft. “He’s probably the smartest guy ever to become president,” declared presidential historian Michael Beschloss the day after the 2008 election. But you don’t have to be that smart to put one over on all the smart guys. “I’m a sap, a specific kind of sap. I’m an Obama Sap,” admits David Brooks, the softest touch at The New York Times. Tina Brown, editor of Newsweek, now says of the president: “He wasn’t ready, it turns out, really.”

update:  Gallup shows 8% lead for ‘Republican’.

He says, “John, basically, made it very clear that if he were an American he would vote for Reagan because he was really sour on (Democrat) Jimmy Carter.

Because that’s how much everyone hated Jimmy Carter.

THIS MUCH!

And they loved Reagan this much…

Canada’s housing bubble deemed close to bursting

June 30, 2011

Canada’s housing market is in a bubble that’s set to burst and prices could plunge by as much as 25 per cent, a major independent research firm warns.

“Housing valuations have lost all touch with fundamentals and household debt is at a record high,” economists at the economic research consultancy Capital Economics say in their most recent Canada Economic Outlook, issued Wednesday.

“Our fear is that, with the housing bubble now close to bursting and commodity prices retreating, Canada will go from leader to laggard.”

The report predicts a fall in house prices by as much as 25 per cent over the next three years.

The Majority and The Anger

May 4, 2011

Stephen Harper won his majority, and even though the NDP had its best showing in history, Facebook and twitter are full of angry and/or sobbing rants from leftists who feel that their entitlement to power was denied this election.  How they got the idea that somehow the left would seize power is a good question to begin with, but still not as interesting as their reactions.

If you are a conservative on Facebook or Twitter you know what I am talking about.  Undoubtedly you’ve seen posts full of anger and hate.  Some are almost hilarious in their doomsday prophecies, while others reveal a disturbing hatred of the differently minded.

The left dehumanize the right.  I even saw one joyful flower child begging anyone happy with the Harper majority to look inside themselves and hopefully find something that a human is supposed to have in there.  Clearly voting left is a perquisite of humanity.  The left demonize opponents because it is part of their manifesto, at the very core they believe that anyone who disagrees has to be fundamentally flawed.  It is the antithesis of their view that the human condition can be perfect through central government. They will hate you for disagreeing.  The level of anger in some of what I’ve read reminds me that it’s not so crazy to think the western left would go Tiananmen Square on us if they had the chance.

The young left especially carry the rage.  This is likely because leftists politics are marketed as a shortcut to intellectualism.  It takes much more than the average youth’s attention span permits to convey the history and philosophic tenants necessary to understanding any given political model.  So, the left offers the simple trade: hate the right and be smart like us.  Saul Alynsky outlines this tactic in his book Rules for Radicals.

Disagreement and strong debate are the foundation of politics.  In the absence of knowledge, hatred and dehumanization are the leftists’ bricks and mortar.
