The way to crush the middle class is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation. – Vladimir Lenin

Random Thoughts On Don Imus and Others

Posted by iusbvision on April 22, 2007

Don Imus created quite a stir when he referred to the ladies of the Rutgers basketball team as “nappy-headed hos”. It is important to remember that Don Imus did not invent those revolting words. He borrowed them from those who are held up as the icons of popular culture. Imus is the symptom and few have their focus on the problem. Charles Van Doren, call your office.  

 

Dr. Diane Fleming is one of the greatest critical thinkers I have ever encountered. Her departure is our loss.  

 

What is so patriotic about losing? Note: It is treasonous to have no other contribution to the war effort other than to transform every difficulty of the war into a disaster.  

 

The left demands a date certain for our surrender…. so why don’t we just schedule all wars so that we publish a surrender date the very day the war starts? How about we set a date for the enemy to surrender, why don’t the lefties ever consider that? 

 

As a demonstration of how the Democratic leadership is only interested in fighting the President and not the war on terror, the Democrats in the House have voted to strike the words “Global War on Terror” from the defense budget appropriations bill.  

 

The Democrats wanted Rumsfeld replaced – they got it.

The Democrats wanted new generals – they got it.

The Democrats wanted a new strategy – they got it.

The Democrats wanted more troops – they got it.

The Democrats wanted the violence lowered – they got it; the surge is working well.

The Result: The Democrats are spreading the message that nothing has changed and they want a pull out. Victory will not be tolerated. 

 

Halliburton has exercised the John Galt option; if you don’t know what that means than your education has been lacking.  

 

The far left is unmoved by any contrary evidence no matter how strong. Their ideology is beyond reason. 

 

On being Chief Justice: It has provided an opportunity to protect the freedom of speech and conscience of a great many no matter who tries to abuse them.  

 

Ever noticed how the elites, the antique media, and the godfathers of mass culture theory try to marginalize the majority? 

 

The media is confederacy of dunces.  – Camille Paglia 

 

For the moonbat, every allegation is a fact. 

 

I would allow Iran to have nuclear weapons rather than go to war to stop it.  – Democrat strategist Ellis Hennikin 

 

Outside of a few old blue laws, what laws have Christians imposed upon you that makes you say “damn Christians” and just rue the day that Christians ever got into politics? The religious left, cultural Marxists and Earth worshipers have imposed a great many laws upon us that control so many aspects of our daily lives that they cannot all be counted. 

For Example: How many quarts of water can be in your toilet, where can you build your house and how can you build it, what kind of car you drive and what mileage it gets, what land can be used and what land that you own cannot be used, property taxes that prevent you from ever REALLY owning your home, what kind of joke you can tell at work without being sued, what opinions you can hold on  many college campuses without being sent to some star chamber, and in some parts of the country, whether or not you can use your fireplace or not. 

 

Germany will never break the peace.  – Neville Chamberlain

 

 Appeasement reflects the hope that the crocodile will eat you last. – Winston Churchill    

 

 

It’s always the same with these bogus equivalences: They start by pretending loftily to find no difference between aggressor and victim, and they end up by saying that it’s the victim of violence who is “really” inciting it.  – Chris Hitchens

 

 The far left screamed all through the cold war about our support for anti-communist dictators, so we remove one of the worst of them and they cry imperialism.  

 

The antique media did not show us the dead children at Waco, but they did show us the dead children of Hezbollah….anti-Semitism? 

 

To most journalists, the story they want to present is more important than the facts. 

 

When you turned 19, did your parents throw away your Encyclopedia Britannica’s because you already knew everything? 

 

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are Created…”  – Thomas Jefferson

 

 A “peaceful” nuclear reactor can generate enough plutonium to make a nuclear weapon every few months. 

 

After seeing the “arguments” made by the far left on the IUSB Vision web log, I have learned that the left doesn’t want to debate, they want to discredit so that a debate isn’t necessary. 

 

Somebody smart has HAD to have said this before me: People think or assume that the best of times and worst of times occur during their lifetime. This vanity is due in part to a public education that bequeaths a historical perspective that doesn’t go back much further than breakfast. 

 

Peace is good, freedom is better. 

 

Most campus speech codes were not designed to preserve our Judeo Christian heritage through an equitable application of the rules. They were designed to destroy our Judeo Christian heritage through a selected application of the rules.  – Dr. Michael S. Adams 

 

Fact: Democrats in the Senate said in their own leaked Judiciary Committee memo’s that Miguel Estrada should have his judge nomination filibustered because “he is Latino”. 

 

Those who have donned the Ph.D. cloak of infallibility should take this important piece of advice: the assumptions that you should always challenge first are your own.  

 

If you hold your fire until you see the whites of his eyes, you will never know what hit you. – President Franklin D. Roosevelt May 27, 1941.

 

 Academia has been suffering from an affliction of cultural Marxism. This is like radical political correctness with a Stalinist twist. Among the first to sing the praises of Mussolini and Hitler in the 1930’s were academia. Leftist academia sang the praises of the USSR throughout the Cold War, and still practices apologetics for Castro, Guevara, Ortega, and Chavez. What is it with academia’s love affair with authoritarianism? 

 

In a dazzling display of politically correct Stalinism 88 Duke University professors all but convicted the now proven innocent Duke lacrosse players in a public statement because they were white, rich and male. Is it a surprise that the result of these behaviors has been an epidemic of students attacking pro-America and conservative speakers with pies, rocks, and mass rushing of the podium to engage in a “heckler’s veto”? They point at people and scream or chant “fascist” to send a warning to others that it is dangerous to dare disagree with them.
