“It’s who they are …” [Darleen Click]

“… it’s what they do,” to quote Jeff.

Bob Reich hates free markets

Indefensible wealth. Think of all the envy, coveting, self-hate, and downright misanthropy wrapped up in that one little phrase.

Really, the core “value” of the Left.

  1. Most of the federal government violates both the Tenth Amendment and the Tenth Commandment.

    Coincidence? I think not.

  2. Nah, he ain’t the enemy.

  3. greasy codger Warren Buffett and his whore secretary ain’t in the business of paying taxes that’s for sure

  4. “Rarely in history has so much been spent by the vinegar and water crowd seeking intellectual and moral justification for their lack of indefensible wealth” is more like it.

  5. But hey, when you start confiscating personal fortunes be sure to start with G. Soros, A. Gore, J. Kerry, J. Edwards, and everyone in Beverly Hills.

  6. Rarely in history has so much been spent by the very wealthy government seeking intellectual and moral justification for their indefensible wealth theft.

    FTFY, you diminutive grasping troll. Crawl back under your statist bridge.

  8. Dennis Prager says that people like Sean Penn love dictators such as Chávez and Castro because Leftists value equality.

    Bullsplat, Dennis. I’m stunned that you—student of the USSR—don’t see it.

    They value POWER.



    They can’t get that power without destroying those who would oppose them, i.e., the very wealthy who are not on their side. (Wot? No condemnation of George Soros? Wot?)

    The jive about “equality” serves as a justification to destroy their enemies without the rabble complaining about it—shewt, they might even cheer it on or join in.

    Cripes, Dennis. They adore the POWERFUL. Those who Get Things Done without the bothersome consent of the governed. Those who can blow through their enemies by taking away their stuff.


    My eye.

  9. And just how much is “indefensible wealth”?

    1 Mill? 2 Mill? Or just more than Robert Reich has?

  10. I think we might have to go redistribute some of Reich’s wealth.

  11. Any amount not held by a True Believer™, Scott.

  12. I’m very curious about what, according to Mr. Reich, makes wealth “indefensible:” some amount threshhold, or how it was earned?

    If the second, then he might actually be on to something.

    I doubt it, though.

  13. Dr. House used to say, “Everybody lies.”

    The left takes that as one basic axiom and adds, “Everybody steals.” It gives justification to the “Philosophy” of theft that they preach and live.

  14. “Indefensible wealth” is any amount of property owned by someone who feels he shouldn’t have to defend his right to own it, but damn sure will if he has to.

  15. OT…guess who is new on the Twitter?

    Timb116 @timb116

    Heh. I think Twitterers here would love to see this guy blocked & reported for spam. Not saying that’s what you should do, of course.

  16. Convert some of that wealth into ammunition, and it won’t be indefensible any longer.

  17. Beat me to it, McGehee.

  18. Any amount not held by a True Believer™, Scott.

    Given that Soros is a True Believer™, we’re ALL in the clear.

  19. Going through the looking glass.

    The Department of Justice has developed a white paper
    The paper provides the first detailed look at the criteria the Obama administration uses to judge if it can legally kill American citizens traveling abroad without the benefit of due process.

    This is who they are also. Liars, thieves, and murderers, serial in all of it.

  20. Whoever governs a country must first see to it that citizens keep what belongs to them and that the state does not take from individuals what is rightfully theirs. . . . As for those politicians who pretend they are friends of the common people and try to pass laws redistributing property and drive people out of their homes or champion legislation forgiving loans, I say they are undermining the very foundations of our state. They are destroying social harmony, which cannot exist when you take away money from some to give it to others. They are also destroying fairness. which vanishes when people cannot keep what rightfully belongs to them. For as I have said, it is the proper role of government to guard the right of citizens to control their own property.

    Cicero’s “On Duties”, 44 BC.

  21. Who they are, one more time.

    Eventually we do have a problem. That the population is getting older, health care costs are rising…there is this question of how we’re going to pay for the programs. The year 2025, the year 2030, something is going to have to give…. …. We’re going to need more revenue…Surely it will require some sort of middle class taxes as well.. We won’t be able to pay for the kind of government the society will want without some increase in taxes… on the middle class, maybe a value added tax…And we’re also going to have to make decisions about health care, doc pay for health care that has no demonstrated medical benefits . So the snarky version…which I shouldn’t even say because it will get me in trouble is death panels and sales taxes is how we do this.

  22. Dude knows even less about history than he does economics.

    I wouldn’t have thought that possible.

  23. Apparently there is no “Absolute Zero” of intelligence; it just goes to negative numbers.

  24. Ha! Just as I was about to write questioning Eric Holder’s wisdom in suing S & P (for falling into a trap lawyers are warned not to take, i.e. asking a question which Holder himself does not know the answer to), M. Levin leads with the question whether anyone else finds it ironic Holder would take this course.

    Be that as it may, it just seems to me that S & P may choose to vigorously defend itself, rather than, say, give in to a plea-bargaining fine, and in so defending itself, reveal to the world the depth of the causation in which the economy meddling Democrats have ownership for shaping the distortion-driven-disaster in which we find ourselves. But then, Holder has never been known for his wisdom.

  25. New U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry spoke by phone Tuesday with Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi and they discussed “regional security issues,” Nuland said. She declined to say whether the radar-targeting incidents were among the issues they talked about.

    No word is reported at the comfort Japan takes in Secretary of State John Kerry’s phone calls, let alone at the sight of his keen intellect and attention to his own nation’s interests, nor what nor how Japan thinks of Israel’s experiences at having the Great ObaZma “at their backs”.

    Yeah, well, that latter might be doubtful, given the size of the knife in the Great ObaZma’s hand.

  26. And just how much is “indefensible wealth”?

    1 Mill? 2 Mill? Or just more than Robert Reich has?

    That sounds about right.

    The thieving fucks set an example and give their wealth to DC, then I’ll take’em seriously. Until then, I’m sticking to contempt.

  27. DOJ suing S&P? Well, discovery should be interesting.
