Thatcher thought Britain
was worth fighting for

Orange County Register (Ca), by Mark Steyn

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 4/12/2013 5:58:55 PM

A few hours after Margaret Thatcher´s death on Monday, the snarling deadbeats of the British underclass were gleefully rampaging through the streets of Brixton in South London, scaling the marquee of the local fleapit and hanging a banner announcing, "THE B@&$! IS DEAD." Amazingly, they managed to spell all four words correctly. By Friday, "Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead," from "The Wizard of Oz," was the No. 1 download at Amazon UK. Mrs. Thatcher would have enjoyed all this. Her former speechwriter John O´Sullivan recalls how, some years after leaving office, she

Steyn is great.

Thatcher gets the Palin/Bork treatment from the left because she is their worst nightmare.

....a reasonable woman who asks hard questions and insists on reasonable answers.

Women like that must die.

Steyn makes magic with his words.
A nice tribute to Mrs. Thatcher. She was one of the giants in the free world in a remarkable era. Reagan, Thatcher, Pope John Paul II, Lech Walesa, and yes, even Gorbachev, who knew how to see reality.
Now we have a pathetic, dullard of a U.S. president, a disgrace at State and at Defense, and nothing makes me optimistic...

As you can see, the Left is anything but gracious or tolerant or magnanimous or kind in any shape or form.

This is one big reason why we must do what we can to keep them at bay.

Reading Steyn praise Thatcher is bittersweet. He who recognizes that the West is doomed eulogizes a woman who singlehandedly, and in spite of profound resistance, delayed the demise.

Would that there had been more like her...or more who had courageously come out from hiding behind her skirts.

Thatcher and Reagan are of a generation lost and the likes of which I doubt we shall ever see again. All of the so-called leaders today are so small.
Mark Steyn knows it - which is why his writings are so hard to find (Orange County Register, NRO?). He should be syndicated in every major newspaper in the West - and he would be if they were really newspapers.

Now here´s a great lesson for all of US Conservatives....

Learn to laugh at the situation. The Iron Lady was "pleased" the libbies disliked her. It meant she was doing her job.

I say -- great!!

Next time one of my acquaintances gives me a commie speech -- I´m gonna laugh and say -- "wow -- you sound just like Stalin"... That should set them off.....

We are fighting a battle that can´t be won. It can only be put off and I believe we saw the last chance of delaying it was in November 2012. The evil that is enveloping the world has a strong hold and will not relinquish its grip except by divine intervention. It is II Chronicles 7:14 time. "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

Mrs. Thatcher was a try patriot. She was a wonder woman and is now being vilified by the "low information voters" and ignorant people who have never and never will vote. That is what is happening to our country right now. We are being run by the low information voters and people who are too dumb to even know what a voting ballot even looks like. We are doomed forever. Nothing will ever be "normal" again. There is no Ronald Reagan or Margaret Thatcher out there anymore. They have been lost by the teachings of liberal college who have not taught true democracy in years. God Bless this country!!!!!PLEASE

As stated in another L.com thread, the BBC and the american msm can go suck a cow cookie. I´m in London, (just got in a couple of hours ago traveling on business) and staying at the Grange St. Pauls. At the cathedral across the street, to a man and woman, solid support for the Iron Lay. Even my cab driver who had ample time to give me the low down between Heathrow airport and my hotel had copious praise. Not bad for a union guy.

Steyn is my favorite writer and thinker. The wittiest and most insightful guy out there, and I have no doubt that this particular piece displays his brilliance. I would love to comment on his work. But is there no longer any way to read than to pay for it? $2 for a day pass to the OC Register, really? Did that happen after everyone above posted, or do all my Lucianne friends subscribe? Or comment without reading the whole thing. Sigh. How spoiled I´ve become. I´ll miss you, Mark. But $2 for what´s probably 1000 words or less is a little pricey to do on regular basis. Guess I´ll wait for his next book.

It’s a fact: repubics badly lost several elections. Of course, 2010 was a success, but it was commies who went too commie/fascist style and scared some folks. Obviously, they didn’t repeat this mistake in 2012. And it looks by what they are doing now, they wring political rinos so that we, American public, are with a feeling there is no political party to work for us.
I suggest for conservative patriots, to learn how the political struggle is waged. You can do it by studying from the source – lenin, hitler, alinsky and others. Don’t be shy – the future of America and many people in the world are at stake.

The "must reads" editor said it best: "The best description of (Thatcher´s) grave dancers yet: "Snarling deadbeats of the British under class." Snarling deadbeats: Think ignorant - uneducated. University degrees no longer verify education; it verifies they pleased an uneducated liberal so called professor with useless knowledge; and they may have gone on to include parrot talk to a committee for the PhD.

We patriotic Americans are not doomed. we exist in large numbers, are competent, still have the vote, and so I´m told, are armed to the teeth unlike the rest of the world. Remember the(one gun plus one Jew = one dead Nazi) x 1,000,000 =no Holacaust.//Biden says his Special Forces in Black Helicopters can take our guns away.//They have about 60,000 trigger pullers. As an old infantry officer I can tell you that´s not enough against a 100 million plus Americans with guns.

"A generation on, the Thatcher era seems more and more like a magnificent but temporary interlude in a great nation’s bizarre, remorseless self-dissolution. She was right and they were wrong, and because of that they will never forgive her."

We will see MANY Anti-Americans treat people like Dr. Benjamin Carson, Rand Paul, Allan West, and a host of other Conservatives, as if they are the second coming of the Devil himself, not ever wanting to admit that they, themselves, have been LIED TO for their entire lives. More so, they will cringe to realize that they´ve been TOO STUPID to realize it until it was too late.

RUSH: From Katie Pavlich at Town Hall.com: "According to new IRS emails obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request from Judicial Watch, former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS Lois Lerner was in contact with the Department of Justice in May 2013 about whether tax exempt groups could be criminally prosecuted for ´lying´ about political activity." So Eric Holder and Lois Lerner not only are liars, they´re in cahoots. Lois Lerner was asking the Department of Justice to criminally prosecute people like Catherine Engelbrecht.

Climate change is damaging fish brains and

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Washington -- A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn´t know about it or couldn´t get a drone there in time to strike. U.S. officials won´t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States. In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda´s crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen. Al-Wuhayshi, the No. 2 leader of al Qaeda globally and the head of al Qaeda

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld says he has ´no idea´ whether his tax returns and payments are accurate. Rumsfeld made the claims in a letter that was sent to the IRS and shared on Twitter on Tuesday - and says he sends the same letter to the agency every year. He also says he doesn´t even know if earlier tax documents are accurate for him and his wife. ´I have sent in our federal income tax and our gift tax returns for 2013,´ it reads. ´As in prior years, it is important for you to know that I have absolutely no idea

WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius stepped down last week after overseeing the law´s

You can tell it´s an election year because so many noncrises are suddenly urgent priorities. Real median household income is still lower than it was in 2007, the smallest share of Americans is working since 1978, and the Russians are marching west, but Democrats are training fire on race, gender and the grievances of identity politics.

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
