The Zombie Apocolypse

4 years ago I did a blog on Democrats as Zombie and I think it’s time to revisit it.

For all you Republicans and Independents who say “I will never vote for____” because they aren’t pure enough for you consider the alternative.

The Zombie Apocalypse.

The mindless, brainless, all devouring Democrats who will eat your brain and your soul to satisfy their appetite for power in the name of “equality”, “fairness” and “diversity”.

And surely you can’t be against that now can you? 🙂

And they will keep coming like a Zombie Hoard.

Even if someone other than Hillary or Bernie wins The Hoard (including the Media) will keep coming. They will keep pressing. All the evils of the world will be laid at the feet of the Republican. They will take NO responsibility for anything. NOTHING. EVER.

It was all YOUR fault, and always was and always will be. In 2016 it’s still Bush’s fault that Obama (and the RINOs) spent $9 Trillion+ in debt. Though Obama recently blaming it on not passing Universal Government Run Healthcare just shows you how much a Zombie Hoard they are.

They waited 90 years for ObamaCare. They will never let it go. Even if the Republican nullifies it, they will bring it up again at any and ever chance.

They don’t care what you think. They only care what they think. They only care about making you do or think what they want.

Period.

The Zombie Hoard doesn’t care. It wants what it wants when it want and because it wants. End of Story.

And 4 years from now if they lose this year expect to see even more hyperbole about how bad things are no matter how they are. If the Democrats are not in total control of everything and everyone it’s “bad” by universally agreed Zombie groupthink. Reality is not a concept they understand or care about. Perception is reality.

They’ve been at this for decades. They were trying to destroy Reagan when the economy was booming because they got no benefit from that.

It’s all about them.

That’s why they are a Zombie Hoard.

Single-minded to the point of a zombie obsession.

They want Brains. Your Brains. They want them all. And Forever.

There is no reasoning with a Zombie.

Do you think if Hillary gets indicted that the Hillary Zombies will care for even 1/10000000000000th of a second?

Nope.

It’s all a Republican “witch hunt”.

There is compromising with a Zombie. You just get eaten more slowly.

You get a RINO Virus that devours you from the insider. 🙂

They have to be beaten. Then 2 years from now they have to beaten again. And 2 years after that, and 2 years after that, ad infinitum.

Freedom from the Zombie Hoard is eternal vigilance.

And you can’t do that if you let pettiness or pride get in the way. They will just eat you alive.

Pride goeth before a fall.

Look at all the poor schmucks who refused to vote for McCain (who was a lousy candidate and a Major RINO to boot) and thought they’d “teach” the Republican Establishment a lesson or two and we’d get a better candidate in 2012.

We Got Obama, Boehner, and Mitt Romney instead.

The virus was eating you alive.

Then you came back for 2nds in 2012. Mitt wasn’t good enough so you stayed home and Obama won again because the Zombie Media Hoard covered for him.

Look at 2010. The Democrats suffered the worst defeat in 80 years. Does it look like they learned ANYTHING?

Did the Republican Establishment??

As a matter of fact the zombie hoard is even tighter, even more determined than ever. They want it EVEN MORE.

So if we defeat then in 2016 will they go away?

HELL NO!

They will just keep coming back like a remorseless zombie hoard until you are overwhelmed.

Which is why you will have to fight them all of your days, your kids days, and their kids days until the infection is wiped out.

But like any good zombie plaque it only takes 1 to re-ignite it and spread it all over again.

Now you face the real prospect that Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee.

I’m not a fan of Trump. But compared to the other two Socialists I will bet on that risky horse over the evil I do know.

So be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.

So you’re either with The Hoard, or Not. There is no in-between. No squish. No compromise.

The fate of The Supreme Court rests on this election. The next 40 years of The Constitution rests on defeating the Zombie Hoard.

The Zombie Hoard certainly will give you NO quarter. They are relentless. They are ruthless. They are unrelenting. And Forever.

“[…]you don’t have to be Sun freakin Tzu to know that real fighting isn’t about killing or even hurting the other guy, it’s about scaring him enough to call it a day.”
― Max Brooks, World War Z: An Oral History Of The Zombie War

“…We were a shaken, broken species, driven to the edge of extinction and grateful only for tomorrow with perhaps a little less suffering than today. Was this the legacy we would leave our children, a level of anxiety and self-doubt not seen since our simian ancestors cowered in the tallest trees? What kind of world would they rebuild? Would they rebuild at all? Could they continue to progress, knowing that they would be powerless to reclaim their future? And what if that future saw another rise of the living dead? Would our descendants rise to meet them in battle, or simply crumple in meek surrender and accept what they believe to be their inevitable extinction? For this alone, we had to reclaim our planet. We had to prove to ourselves that we could do it, and leave that proof as this war’s greatest monument. The long, hard road back to humanity, or the regressive ennui of Earth’s once-proud primates. That was the choice, and it had to be made now.”
― Max Brooks, World War Z: An Oral History Of The Zombie War

“What it does is illustrate that they can be dealt with. But you can’t beat ’em. They’re not gonna be shamed. They’re not going to be shamed into stopping the coverage of conservatives as they do it. It’s going to continue. No matter what kind of shame you think they suffer in a contest like that — no matter how much money they lose, no matter how many of them get fired, no matter how many magazines or TV stations or newspapers get shut down — they are not gonna change. They are hard-core, leftists”–Rush Limbaugh (2012)

Choose Wisely.

 

 

 

White People

Are evil. End of discussion. 🙂

MTV will air a show later this month entitled White People which shows young white Americans crying on camera over their “white privilege” and publicly shaming them for “what they’ve done in America”.

Remember, back in the Jurassic Era when MTV stood for Music Television and all they showed was Music Videos?

No, this is not a joke. The documentary is hosted by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas, an illegal immigrant and amnesty activist who has worked for the Washington Post and the Huffington Post.

The trailer for the show, which has been widely criticized by YouTube respondents, features white people expressing angst about how they are desperate not to appear “racist” or “offend people.”

According to Kimberly Ricci, the documentary forces the participants “to internalize what they’ve done in America” – in other words, this a huge exercise in white guilt tripping for public consumption.

An MTV write up of the show also explains how Vargas talks to young Native Americans who feel that European settlers did not ‘save the country’.

“They are the ones who invaded. They are the ones who took,” says Vargas.

Thus marches on the Progressive Liberal guilt trip meant to cow you and to destroy your will to resist their take over of your mind and body.

The high-and-mighty Homo Superior Liberalis behind this piece of shit wants to have a “constructive conversation”…LIKE HELL HE DOES!

Liberal Translation– “Constructive conversation”= You are guilty and you should repent and feel bad about not doing everything we want you to do or say because we are so much better than you.

It’s Sermon on the Mount time when The Progressive Gods pontificate and you repent not only YOUR sins but the sins of every Caucasian that has ever lived.

It’s Political Correctness gone beyond Orwell’s even most fervent imaginings.

Frankenstein’s Orwellian Monster sees itself as God.

Responses to the video trailer on YouTube were savage, with the clip receiving twice as many ‘thumbs down’ in comparison to ‘thumbs up’.

“I’m black, even I know this show is straight up racist. Only because it’s stereotyping white people, all white INDIVIDUALS are not like that,” wrote one respondent.

But the Agenda is the Agenda and they are on a Holy mission to make you them, or at least a mindless, cowed,servile, slave of THEM.

After all, they are Homo Superior Liberalis and they are just so vastly superior to you that they just can’t even comprehend how you can’t see The Light and The Truth of just how magnificent they are.

However, many in the liberal media are celebrating the show, with Kristen Yoonsoo remarking how pleased she is about the fact that, “lots of white people tears lie ahead.”

“It’s always a good time poking fun at white people,” she concludes.

They enjoy their superiority too much. They are a callous GOD. And they don’t care.

This GOD is cruel, judgmental, callous, and only interested in your total and absolute servitude in both mind and body. Nothing less will be acceptable.

So we have to tear you down and destroy you before we can build you up againas the perfect slave to your superior Masters.

Enjoy.

They certainly do.

FREEDOM IS SLAVERY

IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

CLASS WAR IS PEACE

FEAR IS HOPE

It’s Just Business

 

Have you seen the new Jurassic Park movie, “Jurassic World?”

It had the biggest opening of any movie in history. The movie tells how a reckless biotech company releases dinosaurs that kill its customers. Its tale of heroes vs. villains made me think about how America has changed since our independence, the anniversary of which we celebrate this weekend.

We call the men who fought the British “heroes.” But we no longer consider the British “villains.” We don’t even seem to hate monarchs anymore. Disney princesses and royal babies are all the rage.

Hollywood needs heroes and villains, and over time those roles changed. It was once cowboys vs. Indians, then Americans soldiers vs. Nazis and “Japs,” then Russians, then Arabs, then …

Well, now Hollywood is more careful about whom it calls a villain. But one group is always eligible — businessmen. In movies and on TV, evil corporations routinely dispatch heartless goons to rough up whistleblowers, political activists and average citizens. The new anarchist drama series “Mr. Robot” on USA Network even features a company called “Evil Corp.”

Don’t Hollywood writers realize that abusing customers would be a bad business model? No. They refuse to see that it rarely happens, and when it does it’s unsustainable.

In the real world, instead of killing customers or scheming to keep them poor, companies profit by trying really hard to give us what we want, and they prefer that we stay healthy, if only so that we keep buying their stuff and to limit their insurance liability.

I say, entrepreneurs and scientists are the world’s real heroes. They save and extend lives.

The website ScienceHeroes.com estimates how many lives scientists save. Fritz Haber and Carl Bosch, whose synthetic fertilizers made food easier to grow, are credited with saving 2.7 billion lives. Blood researchers Karl Landsteiner and Richard Lewisohn saved more than a billion by making blood transfusions possible.

Others in the site’s top 10 include the creators of water chlorination and vaccines, as well as Norman Borlaug, credited with saving at least a quarter-billion lives for creating more abundant wheat strains and sparking the so-called “Green Revolution.”

Then there are the creators of CPR, AIDS drugs, bypass surgery, pacemakers, dialysis and more, each with millions of lives to their credit.

Weirdly, few monuments honor these life-saving scientists. Instead, politicians celebrate politicians. We get the William Jefferson Clinton Federal Building, George Bush High School and Florida’s President Barack Obama Parkway.

But how many lives did those politicians save? Any? Mostly, they presided over a bureaucracy that imposed taxes and regulations that make it harder to innovate and save lives. What’s heroic about that?

In the movies, anti-business activists like Erin Brockovich are depicted as lifesavers. Brockovich, a hustler for personal injury lawyers, used her ample charm and cleavage to recruit clients who sued Pacific Gas and Electric, claiming the power company gave them cancer.

That was highly unlikely, given that the accused chemical, hexavalent chromium, causes cancer only at much higher doses. PG&E workers, despite being exposed to much more of it, live longer than average.

But Brockovich still got PG&E to pay out over $300 million, of which she got $2 million. That makes her a hero?

Part of the problem is the way our brains have evolved to spot friends and foes. A big, faceless corporation isn’t warm and friendly, but activists have smiling faces and say they want to help us.

Who has time to calculate the number of lives they’ve each saved? Our hearts embrace the ones who sound like they have good intentions but are wary of those who are out for profit.

I wish more people thought like statistician Bjorn Lomborg. Unlike many of his fellow environmentalists, he takes the time to rank the lives saved and the money spent on various projects, and he finds that the ones that inspire the most passion, like slowing global warming, aren’t the ones where lives are most at stake.

Many more lives would be saved if we poured resources into cleaning drinking water or preventing malaria, but those crusades don’t celebrate Hollywood’s heroes or punish the “villains” in business. (John Stossel)

The Use of Blacks

How Liberals Use Black People

By Walter E. Williams

Back in the day, when hunting was the major source of food, hunters often used stalking horses as a means of sneaking up on their quarry. They would walk on the opposite side of the horse until they were close enough to place a good shot on whatever they were hunting. A stalking horse not only concealed them but also, if their target was an armed man and they were discovered, would take the first shot.

That’s what blacks are to liberals and progressives in their efforts to transform America — stalking horses.Let’s look at some of the ways white liberals use black people. One of the more obvious ways is for liberals to equate any kind of injustices suffered by homosexuals and women to the black struggle for civil rights. But it is just plain nonsense to suggest any kind of equivalency between the problems of homosexuals and women and the centuries of slavery followed by Jim Crow, lynching, systematic racial discrimination and the blood, sweat and tears of the black civil rights movement.

And if you disagree with their agenda on any level, you’re a racist!

The largest and most powerful labor union in the country is the National Education Association, with well over 3 million members. Teachers benefit enormously from their education monopoly. It yields higher pay and lower accountability. It’s a different story for a large percentage of black people who receive fraudulent education. The NEA’s white liberals — aided by black teachers, politicians and so-called black leaders — cooperate to ensure that black parents who want their children to have a better education have few viable choices.Whenever there has been a serious push for school choice, educational vouchers, tuition tax credits or even charter schools, the NEA has fought against it. One of the more callous examples of that disregard for black education was New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s cutback on funding for charter schools where black youngsters were succeeding in getting a better education. That was de Blasio’s way of paying back New York’s teachers union for the political support it gave him in his quest for the mayor’s office.

Gotta get them young, before they might discover the truth.

White liberals in the media and academia, along with many blacks, have been major supporters of the recent marches protesting police conduct. A man from Mars, knowing nothing about homicide facts, would conclude that the major problem black Americans have with murder and brutality results from the behavior of racist policemen. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, there are about 200 police arrest-related deaths of blacks each year (between 300 and 400 for whites). That number pales in comparison with the roughly 7,000 annual murders of blacks, 94 percent of which are committed by blacks.

The number of blacks being murdered by other blacks is of little concern to liberals. Their agenda is to use arrest-related deaths of blacks to undermine established authority.Liberals often have demeaning attitudes toward blacks. When Secretary of State John Kerry was a U.S. senator, in a statement about so many blacks being in prison, he said, “That’s unacceptable, but it’s not their fault.” Would Kerry also say that white prison inmates are also faultless? Johns Hopkins University sociologist Andrew Cherlin told us: “It has yet to be shown that the absence of a father was directly responsible for any of the supposed deficiencies of broken homes. … (The problem) is not the lack of male presence but the lack of male income.” The liberal vision is that fathers and husbands can be replaced by a welfare check.

And to get your Cracker Jack prize you have to vote for Democrats against those evil, soul stealing, heartless, racist Republicans.

Liberals desperately need blacks. If the Democratic Party lost just 30 percent of the black vote, it would mean the end of the liberal agenda. That means blacks must be kept in a perpetual state of grievance in order to keep them as a one-party people in a two-party system. When black Americans finally realize how much liberals have used them, I’m betting they will be the nation’s most conservative people. Who else has been harmed as much by liberalism’s vision and agenda?

But the whole of the liberal establishment works to make sure this will never happen. Whether they are conscious of it or not. Yesterday it was pointed out:

If you work from the dogmatic assumption that liberalism is morally infallible and that liberals are, by definition, pitted against sinister and — more importantly — powerful forces, then it’s easy to explain away what seem like double standards. Any lapse, error, or transgression by conservatives is evidence of their real nature, while similar lapses, errors, and transgressions by liberals are trivial when balanced against the fact that their hearts are in the right place.

So liberals would have recognize immorality in themselves and blacks (and other minorities) would have to recognize they are victims of Liberals.

How likely is that?

 

Why it is…

This guy Christopher Cook from Western Free Press nails it. It’s a great summation of what I have said over and over again in this blog for the last 5 years.

“Conservatives see liberals as misguided; liberals see conservatives as evil.”
—Original source unknown

Are you a conservative, a libertarian, or a Republican? Have you ever been verbally assaulted by someone on the political left with a ferocity you didn’t quite understand? Have you seen it happen to friends and colleagues, or watched in horror as the media establishment does it to a public figure?

Of course you have. At some point or other, nearly everyone on the political right has witnessed or been the victim of an attack designed not to elucidate facts, but rather to paint him or her as a villain.

My attention was recently drawn to a typical such calumny from a Facebook exchange:

Republicans hate anything that isn’t white, wealthy, and christian at least in appearance. They hate the poor, women, and minorities. They hate science and don’t believe that the global warming we clearly are experiencing is man made. They hate any government programs that help the poor and minorities, and the particularly despise immigrants, particularly the illegal kind. They love programs that line the pockets of oil companies, mining companies, and are willing to export jobs with wild abandon.

They hate public education, and they despise public schools and the public school teachers and public university professors. And since the do not respect the market place of ideas, they hate tenure (that gives teachers academic freedom) because it prevents them from firing teachers who are Democrats and who might infect some student with their liberal ideas. They want insurance companies to make a maximum of profit, and are perfectly willing for the health insurance companies to kill people by refusing service to anyone that might cost them a buck more than the median expense. They don’t care about clean food because it might cost the food corporation a little money, and they don’t care about clean water because cleaning up the waste will cost their precious corporate persons a little money.

This is not a recitation of facts; it is a series of smears. It is the construction of a giant cartoonish super-villain, made of straw and woven together with calumny. The giant straw villain is then publicly burned, in a narcissistic orgy of self-adulation. Of course, the torches of the “best” people burn the brightest.

Or one of my favourites: “you should stop watching Faux News” end of discussion.

Another way of looking at it is this: It is the modern-day version of a witch trial. The charges are utterly farcical and cartoonish. “I saw her dancing with demons in the pale moonlight.” “She looked at me and I sneezed, and the next day, I had a terrible cold.” “She turned me into a newt.” But they are stated with great conviction and repeated incessantly, and they establish the unassailable collective will of which the accused has run afoul. The witch is made into the auslander, and the good people of the community show how “good” they are by shouting their accusations the loudest.

Either way, whether the wicker man or the witch, the effigy goes up in flames and the community is purged—for the moment—of its evil. Moral annulment now achieved, the villagers walk away feeling good about themselves. Feeling superior.

Facts are also unimportant in this perverse passion play. Like the slavering, semi-psychotic Facebook rant above, most such assaults aren’t a series of accusations backed up by facts, they are a series of character assassinations, most of which are contradicted by the facts.

The most salient example today is the charge that people of the right (conservatives, Republicans, libertarians, tea partiers) oppose Obama out of pure racism—simply because he is black. Though this charge is easily refuted—by common sense, widespread evidence, and actual studies—it is repeated incessantly by the media, the left’s foot-soldiers . . . even the president himself.

Anything short of full Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants is therefore, racist. Anything less than full compliance with Global Warming fearmongering is “denial” and also Racist (according to the EPA Director).

Face it, disagree with a Leftist on basically anything, eventually you’ll be  a racist. Period. End of Discussion. 🙂

When actual studies are done (as opposed to just restating what the leftist imagines to be so as if it were actual fact), we learn that real racism is distributed fairly evenly among the population without regard to political affiliation.  In 2008, a survey was done that showed similar numbers of Republicans (5.7) and Democrats (6.8) would not vote for a black presidential candidate. Such a question gives us one of the clearest possible tests of raw racism. A loaded question like, “Do you feel blacks receive too much welfare?” might confuse attitudes about race with attitudes about government welfare programs. But this gives us apples to apples: All things being equal, would you refuse to vote for someone solely because of race?

In the 2008 survey, Democrats were slightly (1.1%) more likely to show racist thinking than Republicans, though this is well within the margin of error. A similar study on senatorial candidates was far more damning to Democrats. Bottom line: there is little evidence that Republicans oppose Obama or any candidate on the basis of race to any greater degree than Democrats.

But this should be obvious based on other facts and indicators as well. Take Mia Love. If you are on the political left, you may not have heard of her, but she is a rising star on the right. She quotes Bastiat, she believes in core principles such as subsidiarity—she is dynamic, successful, and hits all the right notes. She is a black woman, and I have not met or heard of a single conservative, Republican, or tea partier who wouldn’t be delighted to support her. (Deep down, many of the left know this, which is why they have been so vicious to her.) I have worked alongside or come in contact with hundreds of activists and partisans on the political right over the last 15 years, and I cannot think of a single one who would not exult at a Mia Love victory. If she were elected president, I myself would do the happy dance on top of the tallest mountain in my area every November!

The reason is obvious: we agree ideologically. Race is unimportant. Barack Obama is, it can be fairly argued, further to the political left than any previous president. And people on the right oppose him so virulently for that very reason—not because of his race, but because of the huge ideological gulf that lies between. Imagine that.

The other painfully incessant canard is the notion that people on the right “hate the poor.” In fact, the evidence shows the opposite. Conservatives are more charitable than liberals by fairly significant margins, even when you adjust for a variety of factors. Rich, middle-class, and poor conservatives are all more charitable than their liberal counterparts.  It’s not that conservatives are wealthier overall, either—liberal households are 6% wealthier on average. (I bet you never heard that little fact on MSNBC.) It is also not that conservatives are more religious: new data indicate that secular conservatives give more than secular liberals. These conservatives are voluntarily helping the poor with their own money, in greater numbers than their liberal counterparts in every cohort. Conservatism is a greater predictor of charity.

Leftists (they hardly deserve the term “liberal”), by contrast, are more “charitable” with other people’s money. Leftist A votes for Politician B to take money (by force) from Taxpayer C to give it to Recipient D. A and D give more support and power to B, who continues to take more and more from C, in a perverse and ever-increasing form of economic bondage. Then, A, B, and D get together and say that C hates the poor. Lather, rinse, repeat.

But we are getting dragged into the weeds here. We could go on and on refuting fact after fact, but the facts are unimportant. The leftist is creating a narrative. As a marketing guru will tell you, Facts tell, but stories sell. It’s a lesson the leftist has learned well.

Even more disturbing, in recent years, this method of “argumentation” has increasingly become the first tool pulled out of the toolbox. No longer does the leftist feel as compelled to make real arguments. All he needs to do now is shout “Racist!” or “War on Women!” and his job is done. He walks away feeling smugly satisfied of his own politically correct superiority, and the untrained observer is left addled at best, and possibly even swayed by the narrative.

So why they are so vicious?  Why do people who self-describe as “compassionate” direct such vitriolic hate and assaults at their ideological opponents? How they can justify painting you as such a monster?

Simple: To them, you are a monster. You must be.

Reason #1: Utopianism
You’re in their way

Strip everything away, and the fundamental trait of all leftists is this: The believe that through the state, they can build paradise on earth. They believe that with enough tinkering, coercion, and rule by “experts,” they can eliminate all hard choices and competing goods, perfect human nature, and bring all good things to all people.

To someone of the political right—defined by our belief in human freedom, private solutions, and individual sovereignty—this is just the modern re-telling of the age-old story: that some men should rule over other men. Ancient despotism, monarchy, fascism, totalitarianism, modern progressivism—they’re all just different flavors, and different degrees of application, of the same basic philosophy. But the person on the left does not see it that way. He wants perfection. He believes it is possible. And by gum, he’s going to get it.

This utopian thinking quickly leads to an unavoidable conclusion, echoed from the French Revolution to Lenin and Stalin to Mao to the Progressives of the modern era: “On ne fait pas d’omelet sans casser des oeufs.” (You can’t make an omelet without breaking some eggs.) To the utopian statist, “process costs” are entirely acceptable. They are building paradise, after all.

That’s why you see so much more toleration by the left’s rank and file of corruption and bad behavior by their leaders. What’s a little lying here, a little corruption there? They are building paradise. What’s a little cheating in the face of all they intend to accomplish?

That is also why you see such a prevalence of cult-of-personality adulation for strong leaders. Strong leaders resolve contradictions and sweep away the opposition. Strong leaders have the will to get the job done. Strong leaders get the trains running on time. Next stop, paradise.

But most importantly . . . these utopians—both the leaders and the rank and file—are so convinced of the nobility of their intentions that they believe that anyone who stands in their way must, by definition, have evil intentions. After all, who but a monster would stand in the way of paradise? And what consideration do monsters deserve? Why none at all, of course—they’re monsters.

That is why they do not simply disagree with you. That is why they calumniate you and attribute the worst motives to you. That is why they hate you.

Reason #2: Utopianism
The WORLD is in their way

The world refuses to conform to their utopian vision. The world isn’t the neat and tidy place they want it to be. They still hold onto the childlike belief that there can be goods with no tradeoffs, and this world of endless tradeoffs proves them wrong every day, mocking their childishness in the process. That makes them very angry.

Someone once said, “Conservatives believe what they see; liberals see what they believe.” Leftists hate you for the fact that you see the world as it is, rather than as it should be. You accept the facts of reality as they truly are, and you try to make the best of it. They believe that they can make reality conform to their vision of it. (That this effort always requires massive application of force against other human beings doesn’t bother them. It’s just another process cost.)

Your acceptance of reality as it is is pedestrian and troglodytic. Their vision of how reality should be makes them noble and romantic. They hate you for not living in the same fantasy land that they do. They hate you for recognizing that life is filled with tradeoffs. They don’t see the tradeoffs, so when you point them out, it’s as if you are the one that is making the tradeoff exist. La-La-La . . . I can’t hear you! Stop making bad things happen.

Your acceptance of reality makes them so angry, in fact, that they have convinced themselves that you must be suffering from some sort of psychological malady. Over the last century, dozens of self-reinforcing  junk-science books and studies have been published labeling “conservatism” (once called “classical liberalism”) as a mental disorder. Like the mental patient permanently lost in a psychotic world of his own creation . . . he’s normal, it’s the rest of you who are nuts.

Reason #3: Preening Narcissism
They are beautiful, so you must be ugly

The ideas of the political left produce failure at best and misery, oppression, and democide at worst. In spite of this, I had long clung to the belief that at least people on the political left “mean well.”

But do they? Or do they simply want to feel as though they mean well?

Author Robert Bidinotto asks (and answers) the same question:

Have decades upon decades of liberal policy failures deterred liberals from being liberals? Have the trillions of dollars blown on welfare-state programs since the “New Deal” and the “War on Poverty” made a damned bit of difference in curing poverty? And has that failure convinced “progressives” that there is something fundamentally wrong in their worldview and approach? Have the horrendous historical consequences of appeasement policies stopped today’s politicians from appeasing international thugs and terrorists? No?

Then why does anyone assume that liberals gauge the value of their worldview by the standard of its PRACTICAL CONSEQUENCES?

Practical consequences are ALWAYS trumped by the advancement and protection of one’s core Narrative: the fairy tale that gives one’s life meaning, coherence, and moral justification. [ . . . ]

Doing that makes them feel good about themselves. And they would far rather feel good about themselves than actually achieve any of their stated practical objectives. It’s not about the objectives at all. It’s about THEM.

John Hawkins is just as unequivocal:

3) Liberals emphasize feeling superior, not superior results. Liberalism is all about appearances, not outcomes. What matters to liberals is how a program makes them FEEL about themselves, not whether it works or not. Thus a program like Headstart, which sounds good because it’s designed to help children read, makes liberals feel good about themselves, even though the program doesn’t work and wastes billions. A ban on DDT makes liberals feel good about themselves because they’re “protecting the environment” even though millions of people have died as a result. For liberals, it’s not what a program does in the real world; it’s about whether they feel better about themselves for supporting it.

If this is true, then for many, utopianism isn’t about what they think they can achieve, it’s about their own self-image.

So is it true?

The persistence of this vision in the face of centuries of evidence would seem to indicate that it may be. We know that maximizing human freedom is more moral and produces better results—the last two centuries have made that clear. And on the flip side, we know that maximizing government at the expense of the individual produces a parade of horribles. And yet, again and again, we are told that it simply wasn’t done correctly before, or by the right people.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?
Why you are, my dear—you are so compassionate and fair and noble in every way.

The leftist looks at herself in the mirror and sees that she is one of those “right people,” because that is how she wants to see herself.

And if she is so beautiful and noble and fair . . . then how ugly you must be for standing in her way.

 

The leftist—the utopian, the statist—sees himself as on noble quest. He is the embodiment of everything good, simply because that is how he sees himself. How he wants to see himself. In order to maintain this self-image, he must make you the embodiment of everything horrible. He must make you ugly.

To statists, you are just another process cost. Their willingness to accept process costs on the road to their utopia is limited only by national context. In the United States, an exceptional nation where we still have some rule of law, they will certainly calumniate you, and they may decide to harm your finances, career, or reputation. In less exceptional countries where there is less rule of law, the harm is often to people’s freedom or even their very lives, as more than 100 million poor souls discovered in the 20th century.

The typical leftist in America, ignorant of his own philosophical pedigree, will protest this characterization. Do not let their protestations sway you. The degree to which they will treat you—the monster standing in the way of their utopia—as a disposable process cost is limited only by the degree of power they have. For your own safety, do not let them get more.

You are in the way of the utopia they are trying to create. You are in the way of the power they need to do it.

You. Are. In. Their. Way.

“The conservative “thinks of political policies as intended to preserve order, justice, and freedom. The ideologue, on the contrary, thinks of politics as a revolutionary instrument for transforming society and even transforming human nature. In his march toward Utopia, the liberal ideologue is merciless.”― Russell Kirk

the Ministry of Truth It is an enormous pyramidal structure of glittering white concrete rising 300 metres into the air, containing over 3000 rooms above ground. On the outside wall are the three slogans of the Party: “WAR IS PEACE,” “FREEDOM IS SLAVERY,” “IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.” There is also a large part underground, probably containing huge incinerators where documents are destroyed after they are put down memory holes. (Hard Drives crashing anyone?)

The Ministry of Truth is involved with news media, entertainment, the fine arts and educational books. Its purpose is to rewrite history to change the facts to fit Party doctrine for propaganda effect. For example, if Big Brother makes a prediction that turns out to be wrong, the employees of the Ministry of Truth go back and rewrite the prediction so that any prediction Big Brother previously made is accurate. This is the “how” of the Ministry of Truth’s existence. Within the novel, Orwell elaborates that the deeper reason for its existence is to maintain the illusion that the Party is absolute. It cannot ever seem to change its mind (if, for instance, they perform one of their constant changes regarding enemies during war) or make a mistake (firing an official or making a grossly misjudged supply prediction), for that would imply weakness and to maintain power the Party must seem eternally right and strong.

Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” – George Washington

President Fiat Strikes Again

With a boom in Oil and Natural gas, creating 10’s of thousands of good paying jobs and lowering unemployment to very healthy ranges in the area where this is going on it’s time for President Fiat and HIS AGENDA to strike and kill even more jobs and wreck the economy.

As always, perfect timing.

Not even a week after Americans were told the U.S. economy shrank 1% in the first quarter, the White House unveils its new climate-change rules that will kill more jobs and reduce GDP even further.

THE AGENDA IS THE AGENDA!!!

Next, here are the things you need to know about how the regulations will negatively impact the economy.

-New regulations will kill 226,000 American jobs.

-New regulations will cost the U.S. economy $51 billion per year.

-Even with new regulations, carbon is only expected to decrease by 1.8 percent by 2030.

-Despite EPA claims new regulations will reduce the cost of power, electricity rates are expected to go up. Details from AP:

Electricity prices are probably on their way up across much of the U.S. as coal-fired plants, the dominant source of cheap power, shut down in response to environmental regulations and economic forces.

New and tighter pollution rules and tough competition from cleaner sources such as natural gas, wind and solar will lead to the closings of dozens of coal-burning plants across 20 states over the next three years. And many of those that stay open will need expensive retrofits.

And, of course, higher energy cost won’t hurt jobs, the the poor, your employer. But hey, they’ll be more  environmentally green (rather than evil monetary green) and we’ll save the planet from the evil humans (until the next round) ! That’s the important thing– That we are “doing something”.

So what if it’s the wrong thing and the wrong time. THE AGENDA IS THE AGENDA!

The EPA will enforce these regulations by putting the regulatory boot to the neck of industry and force it to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 30% by 2030 from 2005 levels.

By some estimates, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s, the benefits from the regulations, in terms of lower carbon emissions, would be one-half the cost to the economy.

What a bargain. Those costs include higher electric power costs, about 200,000 fewer jobs each year, and $50 billion lower GDP per year, with that number climbing over time as the regulations choke off growth (see chart, below). The South, which relies on coal more than other regions, will take the biggest hit.

Oh, and the impact on global carbon emissions to stop global warming will be infinitesimal, because most of the major greenhouse-gas emissions come from China, India, and other fast-growing nations that have little interest in making their citizens poorer or curtailing their economic growth with new climate regulations.

China’s 1.3 billion citizens are expected to nearly double their coal use over the next 25 years — swamping any reduction in U.S. emissions.

But Washington says don’t worry about the blow to the economy from these new restrictions and rules. We will make up for the lost output and employment by creating more green jobs.

Amazingly 5-1/2 years into this administration, the Obama spinsters are still peddling this nonsense. Green jobs? You mean from Solyndra? Bankrupt Fisker Automotive? In 2009, after the stimulus bill, we were supposed to get several million green jobs. We got a small fraction of that number instead.

In short, the White House is now going to do to our energy industry what ObamaCare has done to our health system. At least ObamaCare was passed by Congress.

The energy regulations are being issued through executive branch authority. And to think liberals used to call George W. Bush an imperial president.

As we have noted many times, the only sector of the economy that has held the U.S. out of a double-dip recession under Mr. Obama is the “evil” fossil-fuels industry.

The revolution in oil and gas output accounts for nearly all of the net new jobs in the economy since 2009.

The lower electric power costs from cheap gas and clean coal have made U.S. industry — manufacturers of steel, chemicals, plastics, automotives and technology products especially — far more competitive than ever vis-a-vis our European and Asian competitors.

Maybe the White House hasn’t noticed, but Europe tried the green energy route a decade ago and now countries like Germany are running away from the high costs and inefficiencies of windmills and solar panels and returning to efficient fossil fuels and even fracking. Instead of learning from Europe’s mistakes, the Obama administration wants U.S. power plants to repeat them.

Let’s not sugarcoat the agenda of Mr. Obama and his radical green friends. This is about putting the coal industry out of business. America is the Saudi Arabia of coal with at least 500 years of supply, and under Mr. Obama’s regs, we are not going to use it.

Meanwhile, China is building coal-burning power plants every month to power its economy.

Obama professes to have an affinity for America’s working class. What will he say to the hundreds of thousands of Americans employed by the coal industry in West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Dakota, Wyoming and Virginia — where whole towns have been decimated by Tom Steyer and other left-wing millionaires and billionaires who fund the green movement?

What isn’t well known is that the U.S. already has slashed its carbon emissions in recent years as clean, cheap and abundant natural gas becomes a greater source of electricity production.

Yet the greens hate natural gas too, and won’t let pipelines be built to transport it. Meanwhile, coal has become a much cleaner and less expensive form of electricity production as well. This is due in part to regulation, but more to technological breakthroughs.

If climate change is a global problem, it surely won’t be solved by world government edicts and petty bureaucrats to enforce them, but through more technological breakthroughs and more economic development. Markets solve these problems far better than mandates.

Obama boasts that these new rules will be his legacy. He’s right. This is a president who is so beholden to the far left of his party, he is willing to put tens of thousands of Americans in unemployment line, make U.S. industry less competitive and increase the cost of living for U.S. families.

But we’re “green” and we are “saving the planet” while we’re at it and that matters more than some stinking old evil old capitalist BS and satanic fossil fuels.

“The bottom line is that this new rule will kill good-paying jobs in rural communities throughout the country. In Arizona, this proposal will likely force the Navajo Generating Station to close its doors, which will mean the permanent loss of nearly a 1,000 good-paying jobs,” Arizona Republican Rep. Paul Gosar said in a statement, vowing to fight the regulations and EPA overreach.

Who needs a job anyways. You’ll have more time to do things that you love, rather than working.

The Government is here to save you! 🙂

Obama already has the worst job creation record of any president during a recovery since the 1930s. In the name of stopping the oceans from rising — yes, this arrogant White House really believes government can do that — Obama is going to intentionally slow down the economy even more. We already have nearly 18 million unemployed or underemployed Americans.

Congratulations, Mr. President. That’s quite a legacy. (IBD)

It’s not easy being Green! 🙂

 

So break out the horse and buggy, the candles and massive house fans (summer) and Bonfires (winter)  (and for “the rich”-solar panels) because here comes President Fiat to make your life “better” with higher electricity bills and few jobs!!

I guess you will need $15/hr just to pay your energy bills… 🙂

THE AGENDA IS THE AGENDA!

We’re From the Government how can we help you today?  🙂

The Seven Deadly Sins

Lust
Gluttony
Greed
Sloth
Wrath
Envy
Pride

The Election Results or the Seven Deadly Sins?

The Answer: Both 😦

Think I exaggerate?

One of the comments under the video above: The MAKERS are the hourly workers that work for slave wages while the big-shots get all the bonuses and unholy wages! Money earned from the labor of others should be taxed at 95%!

Try having a rational discussion with that. Good Luck. This is your 21st Century American voter.

Do elections have consequences?

Las Vegas Business Owner: “I explained to them a month ago that if Obama gets in office that the regulations for Obamacare are gonna hurt our business, and I’m gonna have to make provisions to make sure I have enough money to cover the payroll taxes, the additional health care I’m gonna have to do, and I explained that to them and I said you do what you feel like in your heart you need to do, but I’m just letting you know as a warning this is things I have to think of as a business owner. (KFYI)

Then he laid off 22 people (20%). Mostly Hispanics he said. You know, the ones who voted for Obama because he’s black.

Murray Energy CEO Robert Murray read the prayer to a group of company staff members — quote —
“Lord, please forgive me and anyone with me in Murray Energy Corporation for the decisions that we are now forced to make to preserve the very existence of any of the enterprises that you have helped us build.”

Wednesday, Murray laid off more than 150 people at its company and subsidiaries blaming the Obama administration’s — quote — “war on coal.”

A short list of other companies facing future layoffs at the hands of Obamacare:

Smith & Nephew – 770 layoffs
Abbott Labs – 700 layoffs
Covidien – 595 layoffs
Kinetic Concepts – 427 layoffs
St. Jude Medical – 300 layoffs
Hill Rom – 200 layoffs
Beyond the complete elimination of a significant number of American jobs is another looming problem created by the health care law – a shift from full-time to part-time workers.

Because ObamaCare doesn’t apply to part-timers.

The industry won’t stand idle to “pay their fair share” either. Corporations will simply move their operations where they can enjoy a lower tax burden. Since the U.S. currently has the highest corporate tax rate in the world, isn’t the “fair share” burden already being met?

Of course not. 🙂

Plus, the Government machine must feed it’s dependents their free stuff and their hate candy.

A record 70.4 million people were enrolled in the Medicaid health care program for the poor in fiscal year 2011, according to government figures provided to CNSNews.com.

That figure equals about 22 percent of the population, which means there was one person on Medicaid for every 5 Americans in 2011.

Record Numbers on Food stamps and SSI Disability.

But yet they still vote for the twat?

Why?

Dependence. Greed. Narcissism.

Lust (after someone elses money)
Gluttony (It’s all MINE! Gimme Gimme Gimme!)
Greed (see above)
Sloth (well it’s better than working hard and earning it isn’t it?)
Wrath (Screw you Whitey! You don’t deserve it! I Do!)-see greed))
Envy  (Class Warfare anyone?)
Pride (Look what I got for free!)

The Dependent have inherited the world and they vote (to keep themselves dependent and you paying for it!)  🙂

Nope, nothing to see here… 🙂

On Friday, Obama vowed to “compromise” when he meets with Republican leaders this week to avoid the fiscal cliff — which, the Congressional Budget Office says, would push the economy into recession and send unemployment soaring above 9% if it’s not avoided.

But Obama’s “compromise” is nothing of the sort. He merely repeated his demand for a “balanced” approach that relies on raising taxes on families that earn over $250,000 to reduce the deficit.

This is a sham. Raising taxes on all those above $250,000 as Obama proposes would raise just $34 billion. That’s a whopping 3% of our $1.1 trillion deficit. Even if you seized all their income, it would only run the government for three months.

So the idea that taxing the wealthy will reduce the deficit is false. This is just class warfare, pure and simple.

Even so, Obama compounds the fib by going on to say his tax hike will have virtually no impact on small businesses. He notes, for example, that 97% of all small businesses would be untouched by his tax hike.

True, but irrelevant, as Treasury Department data show. For while there are 34.8 million small businesses in America, 30 million of those employ no workers.

Just 4.8 million, or 12%, employ workers. But an even smaller number — just 1.2 million — earn 91% of all the small business income. These are Obama’s “rich.”

But while they make up just 3% of all small businesses, they employ a stunning 54% of the total private U.S. workforce.

They are, in short, the nation’s job creators. And their owners, who report their small-business income on their personal income tax return, will be taxed at a higher rate by Obama.

So don’t be fooled. It’s not really the “wealthy,” as Obama says, who’ll get taxed. It’s small businesses. And it will have a devastating impact on jobs.

How devastating? A recent study by Ernst & Young noted that Obama’s tax hike, far from being “balanced,” would cost 700,000 people their jobs.

And it will no doubt kill hundreds of thousands if not millions more jobs in the future as would-be entrepreneurs decide not to start businesses in such a hostile tax and regulatory environment. (IBD)

And Speaking of Hostile work environments…
But at  least Newsweek is going out on a Bang (with no Bias whatsover):

This Is Newsweeks Post Election Message to the GOP

Not only does Newsweek want white Republicans to know their salad days are over (and that they are racist, no doubt), but the aging magazine has done so with a cover illustration that portrays Obama wearing the uniform tunic of a Revolutionary War soldier — maybe even with allusions to founding father and first general of the armies George Washington.

You can add this Obama-as-George Washington image to the many other Old Media claims that Obama is somehow just like some of our most revered Presidents. We’ve been told he’s “just like” Lincoln, John Kennedy, and Franklin Roosevelt. Of course, he’s closer to Woodrow Wilson and Jimmy Carter, but, well, you know. (Breitbart)

Aren’t you proud to be ruled by such a God. 🙂

And if you disagree, you must be an evil racist old white guy!

Like me. 🙂
