A question someone should ask Liberals

Think Progress is out with another “we could end homelessness with the money Americans spend on…….” line of propaganda. In this case, they are saying that we could end poverty with the money we spend on Christmas decorations. This is a bogus claim, if throwing money at poverty, and homelessness were going to end it, it would have been over decades ago. Smitty nails it

Memeorandum features this headline from Think Progress:

We Could End Homelessness With The Money
Americans Spend On Christmas Decorations

This is false. It could only be true if the complex problem known by the misleading label ”homelessness” were just a matter of money, but it’s not.

Homelessness made headlines in the 1980s and was exploited for purposes of partisan propaganda by liberals who saw an opportunity to dramatize what they construed as consequences of “Reaganomics.” In fact, as researchers discovered, homelessness is primarily caused by non-economic factors: mental illness, substance abuse and family disruption.

All very true, but there is the question I would love to ask Liberals who always demonize Republicans for being greedy. If Liberals truly buy that line of thinking fine. But, I must ask this question. Why do Liberals NEVER say if President Obama donated all the campaign contributions he got, we could “end poverty”? Why do they never look at themselves? Why do Liberals always look at consumerism and blame it, as if consumer greed was allowing poverty, or homelessness to continue? Why do they never look in the mirror? I think we all know why? Liberals expect OTHER people to sacrifice. Liberals expect everyone else to get it done. And of course, Liberals want the government to fix homelessness, and other societal ills, by
“taxing the rich” and spreading the wealth around.

 

If Former Senator Inconsequential A.K.A. John Danforth speaks to far Left rag, will anyone pay attention

Another has been that never really was kissing the ass of Leftists!

Former Missouri Senator John Danforth is now giving talking points to the Far Left quasi-communist and habitually dishonest website Think Progress.

THINKPROGRESS: What do you think is happening here?

DANFORTH: An effort by some, and apparently a large number, 60% in Indiana, to purge the Republican Party and to create something that’s ideologically pure and intolerant of anybody who does not agree with them — not just on general principles, but right across the board.

THINKPROGRESS: Do you stand by your view that GOP is beyond hope?

DANFORTH: If this trend succeeds, yeah. What they will be left with, if indeed they want to purge the party of all but people who have a particular ideological slant… it’s not a way to win elections, it’s not political sustainable. It might make them feel good for a time but doesn’t work, it hasn’t worked.It didn’t work in Nevada or in Delaware in last election. They won nominations but couldn’t win elections. I don’t know how you win elections without getting 51% of the vote. I don’t see how you’re gonna get 51% of the vote if you make it clear that people in your own party, who don’t absolutely agree with everything you want to do, aren’t wanted.

A Useful Idiot! He should know that if ThinkProgress wants to interview him it is because they want to use him as a tool.
