Did you catch that? Black Americans don’t have reading material in their homes but they do have tv.  Ben Shapiro’s new book Primetime Propaganda.

The former brain dead liberal speaks but to only a conservative audience

It’s interesting that if you look up David Mamet at Wikipedia, there is no mention of his new book The Secret Knowledge on the Dismantling of American Culture. There’s no mention of his 2008 op-ed piece in the Village Voice where he ‘comes out’ as a former “brain dead liberal” and says:

I’d observed that lust, greed, envy, sloth, and their pals are giving the world a good run for its money, but that nonetheless, people in general seem to get from day to day; and that we in the United States get from day to day under rather wonderful and privileged circumstances—that we are not and never have been the villains that some of the world and some of our citizens make us out to be, but that we are a confection of normal (greedy, lustful, duplicitous, corrupt, inspired—in short, human) individuals living under a spectacularly effective compact called the Constitution, and lucky to get it.

It’s interesting and telling that the liberal Wikipedia, as well as other liberal outlets, is trying to ignore Mamet’s conservative epiphany. I hope that conservative media jump on this opportunity to showcase another David Horowitz or Andrew Breitbart conservative convert.

Mamet’s a practicing Jew who sees the world through different eyes now than he did 10 or even 5 years ago. He’s the Pulitzer Prize winning author of GlenGarry Glen Ross and his screenplays for movies such as The Untouchables, The Verdict and Wag the Dog have been nominated for Academy Awards.

He’s one of the few (now former) liberals who chose to look at other sides and read other ideas. His new heros are now conservative giants like Milton Freidman, Thomas Sowell and Shelby Steele. In the process, his eyes have been opened.

I examined my Liberalism and found it like an addiction to roulette. Here, though the odds are plain, and the certainty of loss apparent to anyone with a knowledge of arithmetic, the addict, failing time and again, is convinced he yet is graced with the power to contravene natural laws. The roulette addict, when he inevitably comes to grief, does not examine either the nature of roulette or of his delusion, but retires to develop a new system, and to scheme for more funds.
The great wickedness of Liberalism, I saw, was that those who devise the ever new State Utopias, whether crooks or fools, set out to bankrupt not themselves but others.*

*President Obama said, “The individual at some point must be able to say, ‘I have enough money.'” But will Mr. Obama out of office, say this to himself, and the vast riches he will enjoy? One must doubt it.

I started reading his new book yesterday. It’s only 223 pages long (minus his acknowledgments, bibliography and index) but every page, every paragraph is quotable. It’s an amazingly interesting, entertaining and educational book written in a playwright’s lyrical style.

I highly recommend it.

The YES WE CAN crowd feeling a little HOPE-less

Quietly and slowly, the Obamatrons are speaking out about disappointment in their Messiah. My goodness, he’s turned out to be just another politician, albeit one with no true principles, but another just the same.

After 20 months, all the promises of “Hope ‘n Change and He’ll pay my bills” have not materialized for these awestruck supporters:

Where is Peggy now? Who’s paying her bills? I’d bet it’s you and me. She said if she helps Obama, he will help her. What’s he done for her (and the rest of us) lately? I wish I had the finances to find this lady today and ask her how many mortgage payments Obama’s paid for her.

The lawsuit beleaguered and talentless artist to the King, who banked big off of this Messiah, is now feeling a little empty in the heart:

“Looking at Obama’s standpoint on various policies, it was like, ‘Why throw all these particular projectiles over the wall… when I could put all those things in one projectile that I could hurl over the wall,'” Fairey said in a phone interview from Los Angeles, where he lives. “Obama was the delivery device in theory. Now, I realize that he maybe is not the correct delivery device, and I’ll just deal with those issues separately.”

This lady finally asked the one question that I think, crystallizes how all Americans are feeling:

But the solution to all this hopelessness is in the TEA party. The answer to her question of “is this my new reality” is the message of the TEA party. We are not going to sit by and let this nation go down the drain under the spell that this phony Messiah cast over so many.

We weren’t duped and we are going to undupe the duped.

The real hope of a better reality is in the message of the TEA party: less spending, less regulations, less government.  And the real outcome is more prosperity for all.
