The World-Changing Margaret Thatcher
Wall Street Journal, by Paul Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 4/8/2013 8:21:53 PM

Margaret Thatcher had more impact on the world than any woman ruler since Catherine the Great of Russia. Not only did she turn around—decisively—the British economy in the 1980s, she also saw her methods copied in more than 50 countries. "Thatcherism" was the most popular and successful way of running a country in the last quarter of the 20th century and into the 21st. Her origins were humble. Born Oct. 13, 1925, she was the daughter of a grocer in the Lincolnshire town of Grantham. Alfred Roberts was no ordinary shopkeeper.

Thatcher was, like Reagan, a dedicated free enterprise conservative. She applied this to her socialist ruined country and saved it from disaster. The socialists hated her. Sounds good to me!

I hope and pray there is an American Margaret Thatcher out there on the horizon. We are desperately in need of one. Obama has done so much damage to this country, it will take a person with a core built on solid conservative principles, enormous courage and will to set the country on solid footing again.

In re#5, There are several Margaret Thatchers in the U. S., but the fundamental matter is how do we get them into the drivers seat. Remember that she did not have the support of the Old Guard of the Tories any moreeee than Ronald Reagan ever had the support of the Rockefeller wing of the G OP. C

When I look back on the strong confident woman that Margaret Thatcher was and think how she made it to the "top of the greasy pole" (Benjamin Disraeli) and did it all by herself and then look at the current crop of American women politicians....I could cry.

The problem with America is that if a woman doesn´t look "pretty", she´s instantly dismissed as being of no significance. There´s an appearance fascism throughout the country, especially on the Left.

I also think that British women do "camp" much better than American women. When I say camp, I mean a certain pose or expression of one´s face or body that conveys a meaning without the need for words. Thatcher was very good at it.

Very nice (and balanced) piece. One of the differences she made was visible: London went from being a shabby place to a vibrant place, with investment money flowing. When we traveled there during her terms in office the changes were palpable.

Reagan and Thatcher: how we could use them now, during this period of second-rate bureaucrats.

"Some people call it a coincidence -- I think it´s more than that -- that, at the same time in the world, we had Ronald Reagan, Pope John Paul II, and Margaret Thatcher. Those three leaders on the world stage -- at the same time -- did more for freedom and liberty for people all over this world than any three people since the founding of this country." -- Rush Limbaugh

We, as well as Britain, have lost one of the greatest people in the world with the passing of Margaret Thatcher.

The photographs of Lady Thatcher and Ronald Reagan together bring a lump to my throat and a kind of furious anger that what they built is being ruined by people of personal greed.

As were so many people, I was in serious financial trouble and (consequently) great fear during the Carter years. President Reagan seemed God-Sent, and, over his terms of office I began to see that Margaret Thatcher made many of Reagan´s accomplishments possible, as he made hers possible as well. The world was sane again. They WERE God-Sent.

We so need them now.

#5, re whether we have any Margaret Thatchers in the U.S...

Phyllis Schlafly comes closest, as far as steely determination and force of intellect go; but yes, she´s elderly to the point of being fragile now.

There was an anecdote told yesterday about Sarah Palin and a missed opportunity to meet Thatcher. The story was, when Palin burst on the national scene in 2008, Thatcher wanted to meet with her.

Thatcher believed Palin had great potential, but wanted to impress upon her the importance of improving her voice and accent (as Thatcher herself had done, decades ago).

The story continued that the Palin/Thatcher meeting never took place -- apparently because Palin didn´t accept the invitation. That´s the claim anyway.

We classical liberal, free market, personal enterprise, non lobbying, anti monarchy capitalists, small, medium, big .. question our alltime hero, Lucianne, referring to the
legendary Margaret Thatcher as a baroness.
Did she ever refer to herself as baroness?
The American Revolution was all about getting rid of royalty, the monarchy, the thieving, warring sickness of it all.
She was always, Margaret Thatcher, please !

Rush said that Thatcher was enamored with our British Founders. According to Limbaugh, who spoke with her numerous times, she especially loved Jefferson. She would have supported the Boston Tea Party had she been there. Obviously she wasn´t a big fan of George III.

Are there real "Leaders" on the Left with a soul, a spine and a sense of decency?
It seems that the answer is ´Probably not...´
The widespread and enthusiastic near orgies of hate being exhibited over the death of Mrs. Thatcher by MANY, MANY---all TOO many--- on the Left, throughout London and the UK and spreading to social media are a warning that a deep-seated evil has become a, if not ´the´, motive force on the Left.
Until and unless such vile, disgusting, base behavior is condemned and repudiated by the ´leaders´ of the Left, decent persons around the globe will have no choice but to look at how the Left is tolerating if not abetting such action...and to quite properly paint the Left as one with those activists.

Great tribute to a great Lady. The closing "credit" at the end: "Mr. Johnson is a historian." reminds us that history indeed repeats itself. Correlate the circumstances in GB in the mid 1970´s, as detailed in the article, with those in the USA today.

Male or female: we desperately need a Margaret Thatcher of our own.

I never read that Thatcher wanted to meet Palin, but do not believe that Sarah refused to meet her. I did read that she wanted to meet Thatcher, and of course the media criticized her for it, implying that it was presumptuous of her. If both stories are true, apparently it just didn´t work out schedule-wise.

Yes, we do have Hillary, to our great chagrin. But, we also have Sarah Palin, who if it were not for the unbelievably unfair and viscous attacks on her (from BOTH sides) - JUST for being a good-looking Conservative woman - would have led us OUT of our national malaise starting from this past January.

And that´s the unvarnished truth.

Climate change is damaging fish brains and

researchers warn

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 - 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.

CBO Dire Debt Warnings Show
Nation´s Democrat Future

Big Government: The Congressional Budget Office warns of a terrifying, unprecedented level of national debt in the coming decade. That fits nicely with Democrats´ objectives, but not with our nation´s founding principles. Andrew Jackson, who in 1835 succeeded in paying off the national debt, was famous for considering debt slavery. The current fiscal path the U.S. is on does indeed lead to slavery, but the slave masters of the future will be well-heeled politicians and federal bureaucrats, not plantation owners. The CBO´s new budget projections contain an eerie warning that we are on path from today´s already unfathomable $17.7 trillion in gross

Failure: ObamaCare fans are cheering the latest Congressional Budget Office report, which appears to show that it will cost less and cover more people than expected. But that´s true only if you ignore reality. We don´t always agree with the CBO, but we have long respected it as a credible source of budget numbers. Sure, its projections almost never turn out to be true. But simply too many variables are at play for anyone to guess such things perfectly, and it provides a more or less independent source of information on highly charged, partisan issues. Plus, its findings have a tendency to upset

Taxes: In his first campaign, President Obama pledged to cut taxes for all but the very rich. Now that another tax day has come and gone, it should be very clear that his pledge was just another in a long line of falsehoods. ´I can make a firm pledge," then-candidate Barack Obama said while campaigning back in 2008. "Under my plan no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes."

Corruption: The standoff in the Nevada desert wasn´t about a desert tortoise or a rancher´s failure to pay grazing fees. It was about the state´s senior senator again enriching himself and his family at public expense. Sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant, and the end, at least temporarily, to the Bureau of Land Management´s armed standoff with Cliven Bundy may be due in part to the exposure given to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid´s role in the attempt to confiscate Bundy´s cattle and shut down his ranch.

WASHINGTON -- Latinos and immigration activists are warning of political peril for President Barack Obama and Democrats in the fall election unless the president acts boldly and soon to curb deportations and allow more immigrants to remain legally in the U.S. Many activists say Obama has been slow to grasp the emotions building within the Latino community as deportations near the 2 million mark for his administration and hopes for immigration legislation fade. With House Republicans unlikely to act on an overhaul, executive action by Obama is increasingly the activists´ only hope. "There is tremendous anger among core constituencies of the president

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.

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! 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

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

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
