Who Decided Paul McCartney Knows Anything?

Paul McCartney has a lot to say about American issues lately.

He started by mocking a former U.S. president during a visit to the White House to accept an award, something I find offensive as an American.

Now, he's popping up in the news with strident support for President Obama, complete with the standard American liberal rhetoric.

(Standard liberal rhetoric: Talk about unrealistic, impossible liberal goals, then blame conservatives for reality not being that way.)

That he's ultra-liberal isn't really the problem.

What I don't understand is why his political and social opinions merit worldwide broadcast.

To me, he's a singer, so if it's not a song coming out of his mouth than I have no interest in it.

Why should I? Aside from really good songs and music, who is Paul McCartney? He's just a super-rich, old, white liberal. He's got really socially progressive views, and wants to influence American politics in that direction.

And he's not a U.S. citizen.

So to come to America, to the White House, and insult not only a former president, but the half of America that voted for that president -- twice -- is just poor behavior.Classless.

And Obama is classless for not chastising McCartney. It's called pride in your country.

Obama Administration Needs Dictionary

Simply put: "Illegal" means "not legal."

How can anyone say, with a straight face, that people in this country illegally are entitled to anything? It would seem to me that if someone's very presence in this country is a violation of law, then the only thing they are entitled to in America is a ride back to their homeland.

The left wing loves illegals, because most illegals are Hispanic, so then the party can say it's protecting Hispanics, and then the Hispanics are supposed to be obligated to vote Democrat. It's really disgusting.

Illegal immigration is bad for the country, bad for legal Americans and bad for the illegal immigrants themselves. An unsecured border is terrible for a country, Americans have to foot extra bills, and illegals have to live substandard lives because their being here is a criminal act.

But Democrats exploit this, they keep it going for the votes, for the power and control, and in doing so keep a huge number of people -- the illegals -- as modern-day slaves.

Obama Analysis from Washington Examiner

This isn't a partisan hit piece, but rather a reasoned explanation of some of the Obama administration's mistakes.

Finding links between politicians and people who give those politicians money is always intriguing to me, especially when those links seem to influence policy to go against the interest of the nation in favor of those links, because it shows the need for (a) removal of such politicians from office and (b) the need for campaign finance reform.

If we want the government to act in the interests of the common man, then we need common men in charge. It really is that simple. There are so many smart, honest, trustworthy people out there in our great country that will never have a chance to lead simply because of their circumstances.

And the onus is on us. We technically are still in control; it's just a matter how how and if we act on it.

The Intolerance of the Left, Part XXI

This is a well written story about a man who does not agree with liberal policy, so he put up a sign.

Unlike so many similar stories, this one does not try to paint the man as a rabid Republican or white supremacist, just a hardworking man with a valid opinion.

However, people who disagree with him lit his sign on fire, twice, as well as his farmhouse. The story does not say how the police came to the conclusion that it was political beliefs that brought the arson incidents, versus a general firebug, but such reaction from the left is all too common. From book signings to college auditoriums to street corners, conservatives are repeatedly shut down by the left.

Ask Karl Rove, Ann Coulter or Rush Limbaugh how polite liberals are when faced with speech they disagree with.

It seems that the people preaching tolerance the loudest are the most intolerant; the ones who cry the most about civil liberties are the first ones to take them away from others.
