Matt Yglesias: Ownership is a myth, property belongs to The State!/mattyglesias/status/248208092918067200

A 1998 audio clip of President Obama singing the praises of wealth redistribution is making the rounds today.

For conservatives, Obama’s attitude doesn’t come as much of a shock, but it’s certainly worth spotlighting. For liberals, the concept of wealth redistribution is one that should be embraced. That’s certainly the case for Slate “real reporter” Matt Yglesias, who argues that ownership is just a myth.

In Matt’s universe, your business? Your life? You didn’t build that. Your property? You didn’t own that. Ever. Matt’s credibility as a “real journalist”? He didn’t earn that.

Anti-statist Twitterers were more than happy to dish out the business to Yglesias. Hard:

I can't wait for Obama to make this argument in the debate.

@mattyglesias wow good thing you’re not in charge of ANYTHING. Sheesh.

.@mattyglesias So nobody respected anyone's claim to exclusively use and dispose of things before states started enforcing it?

— Bryan Pick (@BryanPick) September 19, 2012

The concept of property predates government. It's the product of one's work. @mattyglesias

— ن Miké Ramoné ن (@ThePantau) September 19, 2012

Maybe if @mattyglesias didn't have to steal his book titles he'd have a more philosophically robust view of ownership….

— el Sooper (@SooperMexican) September 19, 2012

I guess us pale faces are off the hook for "stealing" all that non-property from the Indians then.

— Colin Duffy (@TheRightDuff) September 19, 2012

In short, you didn't build that, you don't own that. You owe all to the merciful, life giving state.

Special repost for state-worshipping @mattyglesias: In the beginning Govt created the Heavens and the Earth

Hey, @mattyglesias – where do you live? I'd like to check over your furniture and see if there's anything I like. #mythofownership

— Katewerk (@katewerk) September 19, 2012

Oh, snap.

Yglesias is free to hand off all his worldly possessions to The State. Elizabeth Warren and Chairman Mao would be ever so pleased. Meanwhile, we’ll hold on to what’s rightfully ours. We rather enjoy our life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

She Quit Her Job To Spread Love To Abandoned Greyhounds In The Best Way Possible

In 2008, a 52-year-old mother in Seaburn, U.K., began knitting sweaters. However, Jan Brown wasn’t doing it just to keep herself busy. Instead, she was making the adorable pieces of clothing for abandoned greyhounds and whippets.

Ms. Brown began hand-knitting dog coats to raise money and awareness for a greyhound rescue…but now, her business has taken off and she is helping dogs all over the globe.

Although she began her work in 2008, in 2012 she was inundated with orders for coats, hats, and neck warmers for all kinds of dogs. She has since quit her day job to keep knitting.

The Greyhound Rescue Northeast shelter in Tyne & Wear benefited from her charitable work…but now her business, Knitted With Love, is helping shelters across the U.K.

She has stopped taking orders for Christmas 2015, but that doesn’t mean you can’t place an order later!

Not only do these doggie sweaters keep your pooch fashionable during the winter, but all of the profits go towards a good cause.

It doesn’t hurt that these outfits are beyond adorable.

Plus, greyhounds and whippets have a difficult time generating/retaining enough body heat on their own (and in the winter, especially). So the cute jumpers serve a great purpose!

If you’d like to learn more about Jan’s work (or place an order for your own doggie sweater), visit the Knitted With Love website!

New tone? Despicable lefties fantasize about ‘hate f**king’ Paul Ryan!/jbootyb/status/256566103000621058

Remember all that liberal talk about new tone and civility? As always, it doesn’t apply when the Left develops a new derangement syndrome.

Since last night’s debate, we’ve seen twisted libs wish rape on Paul Ryan’s wife, make abortion jokes about his daughter and fantasize about his mother aborting him.

Others are OK with the fact that Ryan was born, but only so they can indulge in sick dreams of “hate f**king” him. Since it’s unimaginable that Ryan would be a willing participant, let’s call these tweets what they are: rape fantasies.

Yeah, we noticed that you’re a horrible person. And you’ve got plenty of company.

Lapdog priorities! David Gregory tweets baseball during Libya hearing!/redsteeze/status/256076350660673536

Wow. Rep. Cummings disgracefully couldn’t remember Ambassador Stevens’ name during the House Oversight Committee hearing on Libya today and “real journalist” David Gregory thinks it’s not even worth mentioning. Might be time to revive #DavidGregoryQuestions!

You see, while the hearing was going on, Mr. Gregory prattled on about sporty thingies. Baseball, in particular.

Great day for Nationals playoff baseball. First time in DC in 79 years! I wish 1pm start time didn't prevent kids from seeing history.

‘GROW UP': Kirsten Powers rips Dem women crying ‘sexism’ about Susan Rice!/kirstenpowers10/status/269505666224377856

Fox News analyst Kirsten Powers ripped into a group of Democratic congresswomen this afternoon for holding a presser about the “sexist, racist” GOP criticism of delicate flower Amb. Susan Rice.

The tiresome, loathsome and always demeaning “lady parts” card — femme-a-gogues never leave home without it.

House Women Defend Rice Over Libya Comments (by ‘defend’ they mean ‘infantalize’) claiming she is being ‘battered’…

— kirsten powers (@kirstenpowers10) November 16, 2012

Dear House Ladies: a) it’s not 1970 b) If Rice can’t handle being criticized by a few Sens she can’t be Sec of State…

— kirsten powers (@kirstenpowers10) November 16, 2012

Powers’ tweets followed on the heels of Rachel Campos-Duffy thanking the same Dem women for “setting us back 60 years.”

Powers also retweeted these thoughts on the Dem women’s treatment of Amb. Rice as a fragile child in need of rescue from the big, bad GOP menfolk.

@kirstenpowers10 If she can’t handle the pressure from senators and a few reporters, clearly, she has no business being SecState

Some Tweeters who posted support for the rapists subsequently protected their Twitter accounts. We were able to obtain these screenshots:

A few tweeters assigned blame to the rape victim, who was drunk when the rape occurred.

Those kids didnt rape that girl.the stupid drunk slut got everything she deserved.Her reputation got fucked up so she took it to the courts

Verdicts can be appealed. I am hopeful/confident that will happen in Steubenville.IMHO, the girl should be the one held accountable.

Is Steubenville rape victim sorry for being drunk off her ass?Is that someone else’s fault too?Take SOME responsibility for your poor choice

— truthwatcher (@truthwatcher) March 17, 2013

One Twitter user went so far as to argue that under the circumstances “most people” would have done what the rapists did.

Steubenville : Guilty. I feel bad for the two young guys, Mays and Richmond, they did what most people in their situation would have done.

— Josiah (@zJosiah) March 17, 2013

We at Twitchy feel sorry, too. For the rape victim.

As for the rapists, they got what they deserved.

NYPD looking into Twitter death threats; ‘People are gonna die’!/EyeOnPolitics/status/232856645070385152

Twitchy previously has brought you the story of Twitter Gulag and the preponderance of conservatives trapped within its virtual walls. According to Twitter’s terms of service, the account @obamasmistress would seem to be the perfect candidate for a padded cell there, as threats continue to pour in despite a police subpoena into the user’s identity.

The New York Police Department is reportedly trying to force Twitter to reveal the identity of the user, who last week tweeted a threat referencing the Aurora, Colo., movie theater shooting.

The user name on the account has since been changed to Casey Anthony (and back to Anonymous Celebrity), and as of this afternoon, death threats are still the order of business (although directed in this instance to a fake celebrity account belonging to “KiimKardshan”).

The user profile now reads, “Hacker of the real obamas mistress account and i am the one making the threats she can’t even get into her account anymore. Aint i a stinker.”

Update: Twitter finally suspended the account around 1:40 this afternoon.

The account has a bizarre history, which raises the question, just what does it take for a non-conservative’s account to be suspended? Consider this handy compilation of Twitter death threats, as well as this post from @obamasmistress in January:

It’s not every day we get to welcome the First Lady of the United States to Twitter—happy to have you, @MichelleObama!
