John Fund on Ron Silver

In the WSJ Political Diary today, John Fund notes this:

Actor and liberal-turned-conservative activist Ron Silver knew how to live -- and also how to deal courageously with the cancer that claimed his life yesterday at age 62. . . . . Ron Silver was not only a gifted actor but a brave man, who admitted that he lost jobs in Hollywood after becoming a conservative. But he told me that many Americans had given up far more to stand up for what they believed in, and he had no regrets. He will be missed.

"But he told me that many Americans had given up far more to stand up for what they believed in, and he had no regrets"...

Who can forget this? Just over 1,000 days ago, 2,605 of my neighbors were murdered at the World Trade Center — men, women and children — as they began their day on a brilliantly clear New York autumn morning, less than four miles from where I am now standing.

We will never forgive. Never forget. Never excuse!

What would Ron Silver think of this?
The American Legion Strongly Opposed to President's Plan to Charge Wounded Heroes for Treatment

The Obama administration recently revealed a plan to require private insurance carriers to reimburse the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in such cases.

"It became apparent during our discussion today that the President intends to move forward with this unreasonable plan," said Commander David K. Rehbein of The American Legion. "He says he is looking to generate $540-million by this method, but refused to hear arguments about the moral and government-avowed obligations that would be compromised by it."

Or this?

From the blog site: The Shootist:

DOD Ends Sale of Expended Military Brass to Remanufacturers

We all wondered when it was going to start--when the new administration would make their move against us as gun owners.

Oh, everyone got upset about HR45--I'll bet I got over 100 e-mails warning me about this draconian gun registration bill that had been introduced in Congress.

there's more...

God bless Ron Silver, he was a 'Liberal' who came to his senses about Jihadis and Dictators. He knew they would destroy America, and Hollywood if they could. He realized that if America goes down the tubes, then the whole planet is doomed.

You were great Ron! Time Cop, Arrival, Wiseguy, and The West Wing among many were particularly good. Thank you for everything, especially your courage, RIP.
here's an absurd thought -
our God of the Universe
hates ALL Liberals

who admit their errors
and move Right on defense

absurd thought -
God of the Universe hates
the principles of FREEDOM

fascism comes from the Right
that is a lie of the Left

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says

because you hate dictators
and don't blame America
All real freedom starts with freedom of speech. Without freedom of speech there can be no real freedom.
