RON HART: Ill will hunting

Question limousine liberals about their beliefs, and their answer is as awkward as one of Barack Obama's when his teleprompter isn't working. These people tend to speak of a Utopian world of equality, yet they seem very focused on who is on Hollywood's A-list and who is relegated to the B-list.

Damon rationalized his decision to send his kids to a California private school by lamenting that the state's public schools weren't “progressive” enough for him. Perhaps he would prefer a Montessori School of Engineering, focused more on feelings and drawing one’s own conclusions.

It matters not that not a bridge you design is structurally sound; it is more about your feelings about what a bridge could be and its metaphor for bridging racial divides. Sure, people will die because you did not design it properly, but that is really society's fault. All that matters is "the journey."

So let’s talk about the most liberal state in the Union and examine how it could not be “progressive” enough for Matt Damon’s kids.

Around stimulus time, Obama gave $2.5 billion to California teachers to spend as they pleased. They spent it on TV commercials asking for more tax money.

In its healthcare plan, the University of California approved paying for sex-change operations. Many citizens were angered, saying that the money would be better spent on roads. California teachers were angry because they were only given two sex-change options. A prisoner in California had a sex change operation paid for, then didn’t like the result. 

The state paid to change him back. This is why I never throw out old clothes.
