It’s a great

25 Sep

comparison. The loony left have escaped their chains and turned on their masters. It is starting. But it’s not at all surprising. That happens in ALL Lefty systems–it certainly happened in the former USSR, and we have seen that same thing over and over and over in many different places. No matter who you are, you eventually  have to “prove” your Lefty bona fides. Here is an example.

There really is no question about it. On several occasions recently we have seen Lefty audiences heckle Lefty speakers. They are biting the hand that fed them all these years. It shows how dangerous it ultimately is to raise up a Lefty generation. At some point Frankenstein’s monster slips its chains and tries to kill Dr. Frankenstein himself.

Now, there certainly is some schadenfreude about all this for me, but there is little doubt that we are seeing increased polarization. In another time Bernie Sanders wouldn’t even be in the Senate, let alone be a serious Presidential hopeful! And he beat Hillary Clinton (though she still had the “old guard” to drag her across the nomination finish line and cheat Bernie out of the nomination). And this means that while the stupid and inexperienced youth wanted Bernie (ironically), there had to have been a sizable chunk of adults who were also boosting Bernie.

There is indeed a widening of the rift, and soon the “straddlers” will have to chose to jump to one side or the other. The rift will just be too big to straddle. So it is, and so it has always been.

 

And we need to understand

that finances are a proxy for votes. It certainly is an indicator of popularity. The fact that the Democrats are so far behind in fundraising is a real indication or measure of the popularity of their ideas. It tells you what is going on–it is no lie, and there’s no way to sugar-coat the issues.

If the Democrats keep it up over a couple years, it will be the case that they are just the rump of a once-great political party.

Uhm,

25 Sep

this is a HUGE deal.

I am not Catholic and never have been. I don’t buy their doctrines. At all. Even so, I have studied that religion for decades. And this is a really big deal. Francis was a terrible choice. He won the vote, but he has been terrible for the sect. I guess ALL popes are essentially political figures, but this one has been particularly keen to push a Lefty (and non-canonical) doctrines. I think a lot of Catholics have had just about enough.

Socialism in one lesson.

I think it is quite clear that Socialism produces human misery. And I think that is immoral. It is immoral to cause human suffering, and I am totally against that. Therefore, I am against Socialism. We need to understand well that this is a moral issue, and not shy away from that. Make the moral argument!

Like all philosophies with a horrible horrific human cost, it sounds good on a superficial level. It seems like wisdom, but it is not. It get adherents because of the inherent goodness of people. They don’t want a single person to suffer. But it is a ruse, and it fools even the very smart and very moral. In a sort of moral jiu-jitsu it turns your good intentions into evil things.

As Gandalf said, “Understand Frodo, I would use this Ring from a desire to do good. But through me, it would wield a power too great and terrible to imagine.” Remember, Galadriel had the very same temptation (and also passed the test). But just as one could not use the ring to do good, one cannot use force morally. It cannot be bent to your will.

And THAT is the story of Socialism. YOU are not its master. You would use it out of a desire to do good, but it would result in untold misery. Say it with me: Socialism is Satanic.

 

Obamacare is

25 Sep

a steaming pile of crap. And Obama very well knows it, or should recognize it. He is not low I.Q. But he is just a partisan hack. Any fool with half a brain knows Obamacare stinks. It was a fit of partisanship on his part to ram it through–it was the victory of party line over reality.

As with ALL Leftism, it was force. It was an abnegation of free choice. THAT is what Leftism is, at heart. Take away all the happy talk (meant to fool the rubes) and it is the Gulag Archipelago. It is a bullet to the brain for all dissenters.

I look forward to the day that the economy is freed from the millstone of Obamacare hung on its neck. Obama and his mindless Myrmidons (like Schumer and Pelosi) rammed this down our throats in the dead of night. I remember it well.

But thanks to the way it was done, it is dead for at least a generation. Maybe two. No one will want to go there again, even if they can. Now it is a “third rail” of politics. Everyone knows it sucks. No wonder Obama is freaking out!

 

Yes,

25 Sep

It’s pretty clear.

No wonder the Lefty media and the Democrats (though I repeat myself) are having a kitten!

Don’t kid yourself, all this “impeach Trump” and Mueller stuff is just the death rattle of the Left. Yes, the recently dead rattlesnake can still bite and inject poison, but it is dead. They are like the Hulk–all they can do is smash. That is the only thing left to them. They simply can’t afford to have Trump be successful–it would TOTALLY discredit them!

THAT is why you are seeing “resistance” on the Left and whining on the Left side if the Right. The Empire is aggravated that their Death Star was destroyed by a bunch of pesky kids.

 
 

It is not really

25 Sep

a glitch. This is, in fact, the entire purpose of motor-voter schemes!

I understand well that there are those among us who are bamboozled. There are those who make a fetish out of voting. This is reason # 1,042 why “motor-voter” schemes are horrible and simply an invitation to fraud. <sigh>

But it is quite clear to anyone who is both paying and not a victim of the Left’s “Old Jedi Mind Trick” that Motor-Voter schemes are a terrible idea! I mean, really stupid. It is just not rationally defensible.

 
 

McCain is a

25 Sep

hypocritical turd.

I’m am just really tired of his smarmy and hypocritical schtick. He is the typical Washington swamp creature. I don’t care that he was honorable during the Viet Nam war–good on him. But he is nothing but a hypocritical turd now. If Obamacare is “a complete failure,” how can one in good conscience torpedo the replacement? Even if the replacement is 90% a failure, isn’t that better? Stupid. I’m really glad that I was never fooled into voting for him for President. I wrote in–Romney. I may not agree with Romney on several important issues, but at least he’s not a hypocritical turd!

I think ALL thinking people have reason to be torqued at him. I despise him.

What a camera-hound dirtbag! The only good thing is that he can’t live for much longer and then we will finally be rid of him. I would say that this recent behavior is a result of his brain tumor, but he has always been a horse’s butt. It’s not the tumor, it’s HIM. The people of Arizona ought to be ashamed of themselves!

Similarly, Rand Paul needs to wise up. I know he is a rather rigid Libertarian, but we have seen some pretty severe black-and-white thinking with him. Both stupid and extreme. And we are all suffering for it. He has decided that he either gets all he wants or he will poop in the soup that is for everyone. He just doesn’t play well with others. Despicable. Does he really not grasp the fact the this bill is far closer to what he wants than Obamacare? I mean, most of the authority goes to the states, and not the Federal government. I thought he was for that kind of thing! Sheesh! This kind of crap makes me far less likely to join in any way with the goofy Libertarians. He is acting like a spoiled brat kicking his legs while lying on the floor because his parent wouldn’t get him a pony. His behavior is appalling. And sickening. GROW UP!

Thanks John McCain. Thanks Rand Paul. Way to go, losers. Way to go.

 

Here’s what those stoopneggles

24 Sep

don’t understand: They are soiling their own bed. This is sheer stupidity. These guys were never all that smart (with a few exceptions–Steve Young comes to mind), but they have had extremely lucrative talents. Still, it is not at all clear that it will be ridiculously lucrative forever, or even for much longer.

The NFL is withering on the vine due to this kind of crap, and has been for a couple of seasons. Real people are just horrified at the new entitled tantrums. Joe Six-pack is not amused. And they need Joe Six-pack–that is their meal ticket. And Joe Six-pack is NOT stupid.

Attendance at pro games is drastically falling and one sees photos of very sparsely-attended pro games. Cord-cutting is rampant. I hear people saying that they no longer buy tickets and travel to games. I hear people saying that they were once rabid fans but now just don’t care a ton. I hear people say that they thought it would be painful to stop being involved, but now that they have done it, it is surprisingly easy to do without it entirely. I myself cut the cord, and find that I no longer care much about college or pro football. And I used to be a big fan. I no longer care a ton.

Uh, this is NOT college, where “gumby” administrators roll over for every jejune Lefty tantrum. The “special snowflakes” need to adjust, and quickly. There simply are no “safe spaces” where players can go–and still make obscene amounts of money.

 
 

Here’s a fun fact for you.

24 Sep

11 states have adopted campus concealed carry. Some starting in 1983. There is not a SINGLE incident of a shooting instigated by a permitted campus carry person. Not one. Tell me again how dangerous it is so I can tell you that you are full of crap.

Let’s get rational! Lets look at facts and logic rather than just be hysterical and kooky.<sheesh!>
