I do too, and to be frank, (or Shirley), I wish more people would take the time to watch this.

What should the sentence be for the overload of cuteness in one measly photograph? On second thought, how could anyone arrest something with puppy eyes like that one? That set of puppy eyes can do hypnotic destruction, with the puppy eyes shooting us with all kinds of contrition as they manipulate our hearts, while deceiving us into seeing innocence. I wish that I carried that power with my eyes!

Re: Video: Left or Liberal

Lol at Dennis Prager trying to redefine politics to fit into his agenda.

There is no real left in the U.S. Prager is against national health care. I guess he considers that "socialist" or leftist. By the way, the real right wing hates Roosevelt and the new deal.

Real ideological conservatives would like to see social security abolished.

Re: Video: Left or Liberal

Prager is absolutely correct, as always.

LOL at you not realizing that there most definitely IS a Left in America. Look no farther than Pelosi, AOC, Antifa and the rest of the radical Left.

And as a Libertarian, I agree that Social Security should never have been enacted. But it's way too late to do anything about it now. Same for Medicare.

Of course the reason the Democrats passed these measures was to make as many people as possible dependent on the Federal Government, so that they could get what they REALLY wanted: POWER and CONTROL over every aspect of our lives.



😺 Schrodinger's Cat walks into a bar, and doesn't. 🐱 Let's go, Brandon!

Re: Video: Left or Liberal

There is a left but it consists mostly of academics and intellectuals. There is no populist left wing movement. Yes, Antifa is left. But it has no power.

Pelosi is not a leftist. She's a liberal. Liberals support the capitalist system yet use social legislation as a band aid to keep the left from organizing a ground roots socialist movement. Pelosi is too concerned about her own wealth to support leftist policies which would make life more difficult for her.

The Social Democrats in Germany and the old guard of the British Labour Party are true leftists which advocate socialism. The Democratic Party in the U.S. is moderate compared to real social democratic and labor parties in Europe.

As for Medicare and Social Security, it's a much more productive use of money than throwing away trillions of dollars on Asian wars which have nothing to do with American national security. Would you really have old ladies starve and poor people fall ill in the streets because they worked a minimum wage job all their life and could not save for retirement or health care?

I agree that we shouldn't be spending so much on wars. As to the little old ladies and poor people, I will concede that point.

Re: Video: Left or Liberal

I listened to Prager on local radio in Los Angeles years ago before he went national. I generally like the guy. But I disagree with a lot of his positions.

Re: Video: Left or Liberal

Most liberals tend to let others have a free mind of their own, while letting other people live their own independent lives without society dictating everyone else’s decision. For instance, we are pro choice on things like abortion with the stance of “their body, their choice and their property”, while left-wings consider any woman who gets an abortion as being a murderer. Thats why I’m proud to be able to identify as a liberal, and nothing else.

Re: Video: Left or Liberal

Russell, the left wing supports abortion rights. It's the right wing which wants abortion to be illegal.

Re: Video: Left or Liberal

That's what I thought…

Re: Video: Left or Liberal

I just checked, and you’re correct; rights preach that a fetus is a person, making abortion murder.

Re: Video: Left or Liberal

Socialists are left wing. They also tend to be anti-religion. It's the religious right wing which opposes abortion.

Re: Video: Left or Liberal

That is correct. So you seem to be Pro Abortion. One question: if you don't consider a fetus a person ten minutes before he or she is born, why do they suddenly and magically become a person when they leave the mother's body??



😺 Schrodinger's Cat walks into a bar, and doesn't. 🐱 Let's go, Brandon!

Re: Video: Left or Liberal

I don’t necessarily agree with the act of abortion, as much as I believe that a woman should have the right to have an abortion if they feel it’s in their best interest. I do think that it should be executed no later than the embryonic period, as known as when the major systems begin to develop, but only if they have a valid reason to do that over setting them up for adoption. If they are a minor or have medical reasons though, then it should be readily available to them up until it leaves the womb. While it would be immoral at that point, it’s the lady’s choice towards what she does with her body, so I’m not going to preach against her rights.

if you don't consider a fetus a person ten minutes before he or she is born, why do they suddenly and magically become a person when they leave the mother's body??

This is a tough one to answer, actually. I guess that’s because that’s when they enter the world? I don’t really know though. They’d still be human.

Re: Video: Left or Liberal

That is an intelligent and well thought out response, even though I disagree with it.
But when does the baby become a person? At conception? At three months? At six months?
At eight months? Five minutes before birth? One minute before birth? Birth?

BTW do you know that some states have passed laws which permit a doctor to allow a baby to die outside the mother's body, if it survives an abortion attempt? Interesting concept there: an aborted abortion.

Is that not murder? Legally sanctioned perhaps, but is it still murder?

Re: Video: Left or Liberal

I agree with most of this, but the "open border" was a stretch.

Re: Video: Left or Liberal

2:21 "When the writers of Superman were liberal, Superman was a proud American, whose motto was "Truth, Justice, and the American Way."

This is misleading. The change had nothing to do with politics, but about practicality and marketability. That motto was used for very early Superman.

Superman was created in 1938. During that time, comic books were only being sold in America. It was then used for the 50s tv theme with George Reeves for a show that was only being televised in America at the time. This motto started fading out in the 60s.

Since then, Superman grew in popularity as a character. Man of Steel and Justice League were released worldwide: they're not going to alienate their worldwide audience by making Superman America-exclusive.

It also wouldn't make much sense why a alien whose super-hearing can hear all of Earth, would only choose to protect one country.

Even the 1978 Superman had separated itself from this motto. In fact, Superman says this motto once to Lois, to which she laughs, and says, "then you'll be battling every politician who runs for office," but it's meant to comic relief, just an homage to the original comics and TV series.

Even Captain America has changed. CA was created during WWII and the original comics focused on him being a patriotic and imperialistic American hero. The Avengers movies focus very little on American patriotism and nationalism. He's Captain "America" in name only.

Love is like a tree: it grows by itself, roots itself deeply in our being, and continues to flourish over a heart in ruin.
