So I'm driving home this evening and happened to flip on National Pubic Radio (consider it gathering OSINT on enemy activities). And they're doing a feature on activist Supreme Court justice Sonia Sotomayor, the self-described "wise Latina woman".
So she went to the top student in her class and asked for help. How to study, how to do homework, how to excel. Sure enough, with dedication, focus and practice, she became a top-notch student, winning countless gold stars and eventually becoming a valedictorian at Cardinal Spellman High School.
Now I found this story apocryphal. Consider that Sotomayor is a hard-core Leftist who has, throughout her career, supported the redistribution of wealth and the tenets of socialism. In other words, she endorses -- in every way -- taking gold stars from society's achievers and giving them to the undeserving.
In fact, Sotomayor's entire philosophy revolves around master planners -- wise Latina women and other masterminds -- divvying up society's spoils and slathering them around in an ostensible effort to do good.
Decades of these progressive programs -- the New Deal, the Fair Deal, the Square Deal, Great Society, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, you name the program -- have failed over and over and over again.
In fact, they have created a massive, corrupt, leviathan of a welfare state that is headed straight for bankruptcy like a 747 that's run out of fuel. The federal government itself estimates fraud for these programs at $125 billion a year; other reliable analysts put the figure closer to a third of a trillion.
Instead of improving society, Sotomayor's intellectual ilk have crushed the will to work, built a permanent underclass unaccustomed to individual responsibility, encouraged corruption in government, and nearly eradicated the two-parent family in the inner city.
If Sotomayor had an ounce of intellectual integrity, she would have penned a more fitting autobiography in which she demanded gold stars from others in order to redistribute them "fairly".
Or red stars, if you know what I mean. But I'm sure the irony escapes her and the other leftists bent on destroying this society.
