Not being the first society to follow the road of moonbattery into ruin means looking just ahead to see the fate of those who went before us:
A British engineer who moved to South Africa after “falling in love with the country” has been brutally murdered on his remote farmstead.
Christopher Preece was stabbed to death in his kitchen by men with machetes who left with just a few mobile phones and a small amount of cash.
The 54-year-old’s wife Felicity was also seriously injured in Saturday night’s attack, which happened on a farm the couple were turning into a nature reserve. … The couple were passionate about wildlife and welcomed local children to the farm to teach them to ride horses.
Preece is hardly the only casualty of South Africa’s headlong descent into moonbattery.
Since the country’s first fully democratic elections in 1994, more than 3,000 white, mainly Afrikaans, farmers have been killed in their homes. … Police research shows that the murders are normally carried out by drug-addicted, unemployed black men.
What do you expect in a country run by beasts who publicly sing songs encouraging the murder of whites?
Happy now, libs? South Africa was once part of Western Civilization. Now, thanks to a deliberate worldwide effort of sanctimonious do-gooders to put the country in the hands of wicked black socialists, it is going back to the jungle.
Their work finished in South Africa, the same moonbats who killed it have moved on to Israel.

What did you think would happen following Obama’s Hugo Chavez-style nationalization of the student loan industry if not this:
America’s now-nationalized student loan industry just reached a value of $1 trillion, according to Citigroup, growing at a 20 percent-per-year pace. Since President Obama nationalized the industry (a tacked-on provision of the Obamacare bill), tuition has gone up 25 percent and the three-year default rate is at a record 13.4 percent. …
With many young people unable to pay their loans (average graduating debt is about $29,000), Citigroup and others are speculating that this industry might be ripe for a bailout.
To pay off all the current defaults, Citigroup says it would cost taxpayers $74 billion. However, this number doesn’t include those who will default in the coming years, and, when the government rewards the defaulters, it will encourage more borrowers not to pay their debts.
And liberals in Congress have proposed forgiving all student loans via “The Student Loan Forgiveness Act 2012,” costing taxpayers $1 trillion.
Then instead of paying off their loans, they can try paying off the national debt. Just kidding. By reelecting Obama, we officially established that America has no intention of paying off the national debt. We’re just going to keep spending until the house of maxed out credit cards collapses. Then those who survive the inevitable violence can root through the rubble for rotting garbage to subsist on entirely debt free.

By now we are all used to the “do as I say, not as I do” mentality of liberals. Yet their hypocrisy never ceases to astound:
Officials in Torrance County, N.M. have arrested a self-proclaimed animal rights activist on charges of animal cruelty and burglary after she was seen throwing two puppies out the window of a moving vehicle.
According to Friday’s KRQE News, the culprit, 59-year-old Debra Swenerton, is also suspected of being a repeat dog-napper of dozens of pets in the area. …
The authorities had suspected that Swenerton was behind the 60 plus dog-nappings in the area because she would contact the police to report cases of suspected dog neglect or abuse.
Explains Sheriff Heath White:
“She believes in her world that these dogs are being abused. These dogs are not being abused. They are being kept and cared for.”
Regarding the puppies she chucked out the car window, the moonbat must have thought the dogs’ lives were not worth living. Government apparatchiks take a similar attitude toward the lives of some children under socialized medicine.
Again we see that nothing is more dangerous than a sanctimonious do-gooder.

Since reducing the federal government’s massive wasteful spending is out of the question with a socialist in the White House, our rulers need to look for new ways to squeeze money out of us if they are to stave off national bankruptcy. Willie Sutton supposedly said he robbed banks because “that’s where the money is.” Much of our money is in our IRA and 401(k) retirement accounts. Therefore, the Obama-affiliated establishment media has been making the case for looting them. From Slime magazine:
To maintain this savings incentive the government “spends” [i.e., delays the theft of] $100 billion a year in the form of tax breaks to those who stash money in these kinds of accounts. Now, a new study suggests this tax incentive does little to change saving behavior. Some lawmakers, no doubt, are wondering: Why keep an expensive tax incentive that does not incent?
The study, reported in The New York Times [the quasi-official mouthpiece of the Obama regime], comes from Raj Chetty and John N. Friedman of Harvard, Soren Leth-Petersen and Tore Olsen of the University of Copenhagen, and Torben Heien Nielsen of the Danish National Center for Social Research. It looked at data from Denmark, where the pension system is similar to that in the U.S., and found that every dollar that government spent on tax breaks increased total savings by about one penny.
That’s not much of a payoff. Meanwhile, the Tax Policy Center in Washington has found that about 80% of retirement savings benefits flow to the top 20% of earners. Eliminating the deduction for retirement savings would hit the well-off disproportionately, a condition with a lot of appeal in the current political climate.
That is, a climate dominated by Marxist demagogues like Obama.
Taxing IRAs won’t even pay for Obama’s “stimulus” bills. To steal enough money to put off economic collapse until after 2016, they will have to seize our retirement accounts outright. Unlike meaningful spending cuts, that is very much on the table.

Unless we find a way to stop them, progressives will never stop progressing. Now that abortion is taxpayer subsidized and even widely regarded as morally acceptable, the envelope must be pushed further — toward straightforward murder. In Britain, government control of the healthcare industry makes it a cinch:
Sick children are being discharged from NHS hospitals to die at home or in hospices on controversial ‘death pathways’.
Until now, end of life regime the Liverpool Care Pathway was thought to have involved only elderly and terminally-ill adults.
But the Mail can reveal the practice of withdrawing food and fluid by tube is being used on young patients as well as severely disabled newborn babies.
One doctor has admitted starving and dehydrating ten babies to death in the neonatal unit of one hospital alone.
Writing in a leading medical journal, the physician revealed the process can take an average of ten days during which a baby becomes ‘smaller and shrunken’.
Work in government-run hospitals is not for the squeamish.
Dr Laura de Rooy, a consultant neonatologist at St George’s Hospital NHS Trust in London writing on the [British Medical Journal] website, said: ‘It is a huge supposition to think they do not feel hunger or thirst.’
But what are the babies going to do about it, vote Tory?
The horrors aren’t only for infants. Reports pediatric nurse Bernadette Lloyd,
‘The parents feel coerced, at a very traumatic time, into agreeing that this is correct for their child whom they are told by doctors has only has a few days to live. It is very difficult to predict death. I have seen a “reasonable” number of children recover after being taken off the pathway.
‘I have also seen children die in terrible thirst because fluids are withdrawn from them until they die.
‘I witnessed a 14 year-old boy with cancer die with his tongue stuck to the roof of his mouth when doctors refused to give him liquids by tube. His death was agonising for him, and for us nurses to watch. This is euthanasia by the backdoor.’
Hitler would have put them out of their misery quickly with Zyklon B. But today’s progressives are more civilized.
Coming soon: death pathways for the ideologically defective. Once we’ve rid the world of racists, homophobes, and Islamophobes, our mastermind rulers will achieve utopia at last.

If we are to avoid national bankruptcy, every sector of the behemoth in Washington must be scaled back to size, including even those few that pertain to legitimate functions of the federal government, such as defense. The Pentagon spends our money not only on a military whose might is squandered by left-wing ideologues opposed to America’s interests, but on lunacy like this:
In addition to $1.5 billion being spent on a plan to invent roll-up beef jerky, an iPhone app that helps people schedule their coffee breaks and scientific research on the swimming patterns of goldfish, was a workshop blending Christianity with the existence of aliens.
The event, entitled “Did Jesus Die for Klingons Too?,” focused on “the implications for Christianity if intelligent life were to be found on other planets.” According to the Global Post, actors such as LeVar Burton and Nichelle Nichols were present, and an “intergalactic gala celebration” was included, at which attendees were urged to don “starship cocktail attire.”
Within the Beltway, it’s party time as the economy staggers toward collapse.
Those who spend other people’s money on a coercive basis are never going to do it responsibly. This is one of the countless reasons the Founding Fathers attempted to prevent government’s growth.

The lunatic lawsuit looting spree has spread to France, where a parasite and his lawyers were just awarded a jackpot of $256,560 for pretending that an anti-Parkinson drug turned him into a “gay sex and gambling addict.”
Didier Jambart had been a well respected man, an upstanding member of the community in Nantes, western France, and a loving father and husband.
But within two years of taking the drug Requip he was so addicted to both his vices he sold his children’s toys to raise money and advertised himself on the internet for sex. He has now been given £160,000 in damages after a court in Rennes, France, upheld his claims.
According to moonbat ideology, someone other than Jambart must be responsible for Jambart’s self-indulgent and disgusting behavior. Why not blame GlaxoSmithKline? They’ve got deep pockets.
No doubt Jambart’s quarter million will be gambled away. But that’s okay, the rest of us can pay a little extra for drugs to make up for it.

College Students Told to Reject Their “American-ness, Maleness, Whiteness, Heterosexuality, Middle-Class Status”
Next after awarding people with hiring priority and other perks for not being male, white, and heterosexual will come directly punishing those who are male, white, and heterosexual. We are well on the way, to judge by the brainwashing that occurs in college classrooms:
A political science professor at Butler University asks students to disregard their “American-ness, maleness, whiteness, heterosexuality, middle-class status” when writing and speaking in the classroom – a practice the school’s arts and sciences dean defended as a way to negate students’ inherent prejudices.
The syllabus of the course at Butler, a small Midwestern liberal arts institution in Indianapolis, spells out that students should use “inclusive language” because it’s “a fundamental issue of social justice.” …
The syllabus of the class, called Political Science 201: Research and Analysis, goes on to ask students “to write and speak in a way that does not assume American-ness, maleness, whiteness, heterosexuality, middle-class status, etc. to be the norm.” It is taught by a black, female professor.
The class is required for Political Science majors.
Imagine trying to learn anything of any practical value in a class like this. Then imagine paying $16,140/semester for tuition as an undergrad.
No worries. Obama nationalized the student loan industry. Before long, college will be free for those who meet the race/gender/sexual orientation admission requirements. By “free” I mean someone else will be forced to pay for it.

Who could Time magazine pick for Person of the Year to most disgust any readers who aren’t barking moonbats? Some say parasitical slut Sandra Fluke, who lent herself to be used as a tool in Obama’s farcical though apparently successful War on Women campaign tactic:
Sandra Fluke, at the time a Georgetown University law student, became nationally known earlier this year after some controversial comments about her by radio host Rush Limbaugh. She even received a phone call of support from President Obama, and delivered a fiery speech at the DNC.
Fluke was called a “slut” by Limbaugh – who later apologized – after she testified before a House committee that many college students were struggling financially because they have to pay for birth control on their own.
Fluke’s appeal for coercively subsidized degeneracy was all the more preposterous because the 31-year-old was attending a Catholic university, where vestigial remnants of morality can be expected even now. Law school tuition there runs $24,417.50 per semester, well beyond the reach of someone who can’t afford $1 condoms.
It would be hard to imagine a more profoundly unappealing human being than Sandra Fluke — which makes her a natural candidate for the slime at Time.
But not even Sandra Fluke could be as deleterious for our country as this likely candidate:
Time magazine is asking readers to vote on whether illegal immigrants should be deemed its Person of the Year 2012. The publication says the group is ” ‘labeled illegal’ by many,” although it does not clarify how individuals coming into a country in violation of immigration laws could be defined any other way.
If the idea is to come up with the person who best represents the current course of history, there is a still better choice — the Obamaphone Creature:
There you have her: 2012 Obamunist America personified.

Remember this portrait of the liberal establishment’s “lord and savior”?
The 30″ x 54″ acrylic painting, by Michael D’Antuono, is entitled, “The Truth.” It is evidently not a sick joke, but an actual tribute, inspired by religious awe. The title is a reference to John 14:6.
To liberals, Obama isn’t a cheap little punk, a Marxist saboteur, or a post turtle. He is a deity. After he absolves the white man of his sins by destroying America, we will have heaven on earth in the form of a Third World socialist utopia.
The painting is back in the news, now that it is being displayed at the Bunker Hill Community College Art Gallery in Boston.
It was originally supposed to debut nearly four years ago at New York City’s Union Square. But that event was cancelled due to public outrage.
Obama’s reelection proves we are past outrage now.
A spokesperson for the art gallery told Fox News there hasn’t been any criticism of the painting.
The artist dismisses those who object to blasphemy by sniffing,
“My intent was not to compare him to Jesus.”
Sure, of course not.

No matter how many times you add 2 and 2, you will always get 4. The results are similarly predictable when you analyze the relation between gun ownership and crime:
From 2006 to 2011, the total number of guns purchased in Virginia increased 73 percent, while the total number of gun-related violent crimes decreased 24 percent over that period. And when adjusted for population growth, the number of crimes further decreases to more than 27 percent, with 79 gun-related offenses per 100,000 in 2006 dropping to 57 by 2011.
Virginia Commonwealth University professor Thomas R. Baker conducted the analysis at the request of the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Baker told the paper that the findings appear to contradict the popular premise that more guns cause more violent crime.
To the extent that thoroughly discredited premise is “popular,” it is because it is relentlessly promoted by the authoritarian liberals who control the governmedia. Not only has it been disproven repeatedly, but it makes no sense. Criminals will always have guns regardless of the law. Why would permitting law-abiding citizens to defend themselves in accordance with their Constitutional rights cause an increase in crime?
Baker examined data from the Virginia Firearms Transaction Center, which tracks the number of gun transactions for every federally licensed Virginia firearm dealer, to state crime data from 2006 to 2011. That data demonstrated that an increase in gun purchases one year was often followed by a decrease in gun crime the next year.
“So the only thing it could be is that more guns are causing less crime,” Baker concluded, noting that the data is “pretty overwhelming.”
However, no amount of data will dissuade liberals, because as leftist radicals used to openly admit, the issue is never the issue. We aren’t really talking about crime; we are talking about the ability of the population to defend itself from its increasingly malevolent collectivist rulers.
Similarly, no amount of data proving that subsidizing poverty creates more poverty will put a dent in liberal support for an ever-expanding welfare state, because the issue is not alleviating the plight of the poor, but increasing dependence on government.
In both cases, the goal is the same: to create a population of helpless victims, utterly dependent on the State.
