CommentsSomehow "brilliant" seems inadequate. This commentary would be a "blockbuster" if our society still taught and valued philosophy, ethics and introspective debate. Alas, the circle grows smaller with each passing year~

Great, great column from start to glorious finish. As one who remembers Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick, I applaud you for writing that this, "Obama is driving the bulldozer, and so he must be protected, just the same way that the media protected Clinton in his own private war on women and their right to say no to being groped or propositioned, because back then he was driving the bulldozer."
Kudos, kudos and more kudos.

Anther incredible column. You constantly amaze me; you put into words the things I feel but can't figure out how to describe. You manage to help your readers understand what the left(and maybe many on the right) are really doing to hurt the rest of us. My mother, who was a high school English teacher from the early '60's to the late '80's, considered herself to be a staunch liberal,but was extremely uncomfortable with the "touch-y, feel-y-ness" of the youth movement of that time.
The belief that it was more important to FEEL than it was to THINK; that there was a negative to taking responsibility; to blame anyone involved with authority/authority-figures. The adults today who experienced the upheaval of the era are now the grandparents,the parents(of course their offspring), the politicians, the media, etcetera, who are still FEELING instead of THINKING, with the same belief that they are the good ones and those who aren't in lockstep are the bad ones.
I always look forward to your articles.

All the Morals of a Bulldozer

Bulldozer values call forth explosive faux moral tantrums at anything that stands in front of the bulldozer
To be genuinely outraged about something, you need to actually believe in something. Without principles, outrage is just tactical anger, or bullying in plainer language. Principles, values and codes, are universal. That is if you are angry about a dog being mistreated by riding on top of a car, then you should at least be equally angry at dogs being eaten.
If a man shooting another man after a confrontation and not being charged for it angers you, then it should anger you regardless of the color of his skin. For that matter, if racism or sexism offends you, then it should offend you regardless of whether it is directed at a woman or a black man who is a liberal or a conservative.More...
