On March 23, my colleague Mark Finkelstein noted how MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry considers the unborn child a "thing" which takes a "lot of money" to "turn into a human," costing thousands of dollars to care for each year of his/her life. Now it appears that Harris-Perry thinks that, after they're born, children fundamentally belong to the state.

Narrating a new MSNBC "Lean Forward" spot, the Tulane professor laments that we in America "haven't had a very collective notion that these are our children." "[W]e have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to their communities," Harris-Perry argued.

Leftist arrogance and narcissism at its zenith. Liberals such as these want total control of you and your children. They believe that only they can make the best decisions for your child. Parents not only are too stupid to know what is best for their own children, but are being selfish by raising that child up without liberal approval and input. Parents simply must get out of the way of liberal indoctrination of their children if we are to live in a better world where liberals control all decisions and actions.

At least that's the Melisa Harris-Perry's of the world see it. MSNBC must see it that way too since they broadcast this pompous garbage.

On Friday’s “Morning Joe” MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell made a startling admission: “I am a socialist.”

The statement from the regular host of “The Last Word” came as he was chiding contributor Glenn Greenwald from Salon.com for apparently being a liberal hiding behind the word “progressive.”

“I am a socialist. I live to the extreme left, the extreme left of you mere liberals,” he said:

We've gone too far already. There's no turning back. America is the only nation left that hasn't fully committed to Keynesian socialist control. Free people keep putting up a fight to prevent it but they are now outnumbered by the true believers in Keynesian socialism and the useful idiots that are too stupid to know what is going on. There are just too many riders in the government wagon to reverse course now.

The American economic system must collapse for total government control to take place as it has all over the EU. This is the goal of the Keynesian's who are running our nation in debt. Economic recovery is not on their minds. Economic control is. And the economic slavery of the population to the government.

Don't believe me? Please take time to read the following:

The only way America can survive and return to our past days of a booming economy and prosperity would be to exit the rabbit hole, fill it in, and kill the rabbit so this can never happen again. But that's not even close to being an option with the number of people dependent on government today. We are sadly going to go on down the rabbit hole just like Cyprus and Greece (where 30,000 people are getting their electricity cut off each month because they can not afford to pay their property taxes). The rabbit hole leads to the slavery of the population to government control, massive unemployment, third world health care, and a general reversal of everything that made the United States a great nation. Welcome to the world's largest banana republic.

As government grows the private sector shrinks. As the private sector shrinks there are fewer goods and services produced (government produces no goods and few services).

...the wagon analogy: there are more people riding in the wagon and fewer pulling the wagon. As the wagon becomes heavier, the remaining pullers must work harder to move it.

The pullers must support the riders. Government does not support the riders or anyone else for that matter. Whatever government has it has taken from the pullers. Whatever it doles out it must get from taxes, borrowing or printing new money.

Reference every indefensible attack on the poor with the idea of keeping "freedom." Read about it just this morning, and came over here to find it already in action. See, when you are happy about practically killing the poor, elderly and sick while at the same time giving more tax breaks to the ultra-wealthy, you can't win. Ergo, the past national election. So the "new" strategy is to scare people into thinking they are "losing their freedoms."

If you can't be happy about killing the poor, elderly and sick who can you be happy about killing?

...the elderly and sick are easier...the poor still have too much life in them and they can run faster...
