Whoever loves money never has enough;
whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income.

Comments Which Conservatives Block From Their Blogs For October 1, 2014


Sept 30

To the Red State Diary member bb1776 and his diary entry on how liberalism makes it difficult to see reality. This appeared in the Red States Website

Obama may have initially underestimated ISIS, but he couldn't be accused of having an unrealistic worldview by conservative standards. After all, he is bombing more countries than Bush did, supports Egypt's military government as his predecessors did, still enables the Occupation and sells Israel weapons as his predecessors did, and has exceeded all of his predecessors combined in prosecuting whistleblowers. 

BTW, why is Netanyahu a model here? After all, who would have thought that Occupation, occasional military invasions, and stealing land would invite a negative response? Netanyahu did.

To Joe Carter and his blogpost on Walmart helping the poor by helping the unbanked. This appeared in the Acton Blog.

To report on the banking services Walmart provides is good. However, how many American jobs have been lost to the requirements Walmart places on its vendors? How many employees work under sweatshop conditions to provide goods sold at Walmart? How many Walmart employees receive gov't assistance in order to live? And how many smaller stores has Walmart put out of business? These question are just a few that need to be answered before we can claim that Walmart has helped poor communities more than other ventures? Btw, what kind of bar has been set when comparing Walmart to for-profit ventures?
