    Eric Cantor breakfast funded in part by Geo. Soros

    Next weekend, John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, and twenty-five other members of Congress are flying to Amelia Island to collaborate with a group dedicated to defeating conservatives in Congress.


    The Republican Main Street Partnership’s offshoot “Main Street Advocacy” is hosting the event at the Ritz Carlton on Amelia Island. Steve LaTourette, a liberal Republican former Congressman from Ohio, is the face in front of the group. LaTourette is good friends with John Boehner. Behind the scenes, LaTourette’s group is funded by the vast left-wing conspiracy. According to an email inviting people to the event, “People that are attending have donated $5,000 to the PAC.”

    ..........LaTourette’s group has received money from left leaning unions, George Soros back organizations, and a major Democrat contributor.

    Remember Doc Thompson? He's in a fightin' mood. Heard him on the Glenn Beck show.

    Apparently, if you're anti-Cantor, then your anti-Semitic. Oh my.

    Sure do miss the good Doctor. He is a good friend to RKBA and freedom + he was always accessible. He makes a very effective delivery.

    George Soros funds the Open Society Foundations. Inspired by Popper's 'Open Society'

    The network of Open Society Foundations (OSF), formerly the Open Society Institute (OSI) until 2011, is a grantmaking operation founded by George Soros, aimed to shape public policy to promote democratic governance, human rights, and economic, legal, and social reform. On a local level, OSF implements a range of initiatives to support the rule of law, education, public health, and independent media. At the same time, OSF works to build alliances across borders and continents on issues such as combating corruption and rights abuses.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_Society_Foundations

    "The name is inspired by Karl Popper's 1945 book The Open Society and Its Enemies."

    Abstract. In this paper we engage with the liberalist project in organization and management studies. The first ‘face’ of organizational liberalism is expressed through post-bureaucratic discourses which very much defines the mainstream of management thought today, highlighting the need for organizational openness which can only come through a liberation of management from the closed structures of the bureaucracy. The second face of organizational liberalism defends the bureaucratic ethos of liberal-democratic institutions and points to the Popperian concept of the ‘open society’ that requires rational, procedural laws to reconcile conflicting
    values in societies and organizations, thus ensuring the existence of a plurality of ways of life. We point to the limitations of both ‘faces’ of organizational liberalism by discussing key aspects of Slavoj Žižek’s work. Žižek displaces the liberal conception of institutionally sanctioned ‘openness’ by claiming this actually constitutes a closure and puts a challenge to us. How can we create real openness? How is a real difference possible?

    This is the edition that I am reading, I am about half way through by page count and expect to take two years to read it and then re-read it and its external references. This is where if find a strong argument against progressivism, as Popper's historicist fallacy (subject of the subsequent The Poverty of Historicism), be it in the left, right or triangulated libertarians. Only anti-progressive conservatism protects the good that has been achieved.

    ETA, a couple of hours later; I just noticed this comment at the Amazon site, "Sir Karl Popper was right."--Vclav Havel. Vaclav Havel wrote 'The Power of the Powerless' in Living in Truth (1986) that Includes this powerful statement at XIV. "You do not become a "dissident" just because you decide one day to take up this most unusual career. You are thrown into it by your personal sense of responsibility, combined with a complex set of external circumstances. You are cast out of the existing structures and placed in a position of conflict with them. It begins as an attempt to do your work well, and ends with being branded an enemy of society." http://vaclavhavel.cz/showtrans.php?....html&typ=HTML

    A better option than Cantor

    In November Carr, the Libertarian candidate, will be on the ballot for the 7th congressional district. I would recommend that everybody in the 7th Congressional district who want to send Cantor a real message consider voting for Carr.
