    “a number of public pension funds are using their investment power to support pet political causes.”

    It is a monstrous mistake to view this phenomenon in isolation and unrelated to the character and political motivations of the party to which public employee unions, and unions in general, have allied themselves. People need to be able to call a spade a spade when discussing the perverse and pernicious effects of that political party’s major policies. Young Breitbart editor/up-start Ben Shapiro offers a brilliant lesson on calling spades spades in his Book-TV talk on his new book. http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/Bullies Youtube offers his instructive application of his lessons http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHIQtxLCgrM Unless we conservatives can name names and point out who is responsible for these effects, we might as well just revert to the Sunday afternoon dinner table debating society Republicans were between 1912 and 1995. Our notions, tho’ many, are not worth a penny, to quote G&S, until we learn to fight like the Democrats do.
