Democrat take-over of House almost Inevitable.

According to Nate Silver at 538 the Democrat Takeover of the House of Representatives is basically inevitable.  If you ask Nate, the odds are 76% in favor of the Democrat Socialists.

If you’re not concerned…

Here was Nate Silver’s prediction for the 2016 Presidential Election:

Hmmm….

Are we being set up for “The Russians Meddled!” again?  Or will it be “Trump colluded with the Chinese!”?

Has Anyone Checked Fort Marcy Park?

One Brian Pagliano failed to show up to a very important meeting today. As of this moment his condition is unknown.
If you have seen, or know the whereabouts of, Mr. Pagliano please contact the Park Police ASAP.
Some of us out here are extremely concerned… for obvious reasons.


It’s Fine to Spy on the Little People…

… just not the People in Power.

The Politicians are ANGRY!

How DARE the NSA Spy on THEM!

But… wait… what?

Are You Little People confused?

Of course you are… or at least, you should be.

Your confusion stems from our wandering so very far away from our Founders intent.

The reason for this confusion is we were founded in such a way where the Individual is always supreme over the Government.  And the Government is not only LIMITED in it’s power, it’s powers are intentionally Separated.  Limit and Conflict were BUILT INTO THE SYSTEM to PROTECT THE INDIVIDUAL.  It’s quite simple really.

Which brings us to the fact that The Newly Found Political Fury over Sweeping Mass Collection of data by Law Enforcement and Intelligence Agencies should be directed at the Intrusion upon, and Violation of, Individual Rights of ALL Citizens… Not Politicians specifically.

Frankly, I have less of an issue with Politicians spying on each other than I do Force (Government) spying on the Citizenry.

Let me make this as Clear as possible…

The U.S. Government can and should be Spying on other Countries.  It’s their Job.

Other Countries will be attempting to Spy on us, the U.S.  – It’s not a matter of being ‘OK’ with it, it’s their job… as it is ours to deny them that ability.

What is Not ‘OK’?

The U.S. Government Spying on Individual Citizens without a specifically crafted warrant to do so.  (The only argument worth having here; “Are Politicians considered Individual Citizens?”  It could also be useful to remind the NSA that their Love interests also fit into the ‘Citizen’ category… and some of the things they are doing is considered stalking at a minimum.)

Of course they are…

But the current framing of the ‘Offended’ is that they are ‘special’.  And while I might agree that they are special, I would offer that they are most often the kind of special that requires a helmet when walking outside.

In the end, the reason you should be more concerned about the U.S. Government Spying on you and not China, Korea, Israel or Google, is because none of the latter have yet found a way to show up at your door and throw you in jail.  (Although Google is probably working on it.)

The Politicians should be reminded of their place in society… which was always intended to be servants to those who are not in power.

This will be interesting to watch as most genuine Conservatives do not like being Spied upon, and most Democrats have spent huge amounts of time and money convincing their Useful Voters that they too believe in a Right to Privacy.

Can anyone spell Dissonance?

 

 


Are you Doing Better than you were 6-years Ago?

Well… are you?

President Obama say’s you are… that is If he can have the opportunity to explain to you why.

In his latest interview the President was asked if he believed the Democrat Party would retain the Senate Democrat Control. He said, equivocally, “Yes”.

Then he was asked if he really believed the American People were doing better than they were and… basically… if he would like to revisit his last response.

Our President said he did believe the American People were doing better since he’s been President and they would say so if he could just explain to them why.

This is interesting on two points… both not surprising.

1. You’re too ignorant to know how you’re doing.

2. You must be told how to feel about how you’re doing and then what to say when asked.

This is Progressive Dogma laid out for all to see.  Both of these points are what allow Liberal Leftists to say such things with a straight face.  They KNOW this to be true.

Allow me to translate Mr. Obama’s words; The American People will believe they are doing better than they were 6-years ago if we tell them they’re doing better than they were doing 6-years ago.  Kroft… you idiot.

Whether the interviewer recognized it or not this is also an indictment on the Media and the responsibility Leftists expect the Media to shoulder in being a Cheerleader for, and Propaganda Arm of, the Democrat Party. In essence President Obama is blaming the Media for not Telling All of Us how Great things are and it is being reflected in the Polls, possibly in the elections.

It is interesting how the Progressive Mind works.

This entire approach of Socialists, to all things, goes back to Animal Spirits.

Realty is how you perceive it. And you act accordingly.

Thus, if your perception if ‘modified’, Reality can be changed.

Think about that… Reality can be Changed, by Them.

What does all this mean?

It means if the Democrats Lose the Senate it’s the Media’s Fault, and then it’s Your Fault… in that order.

The Media Suck…

And,

You People are Terrible.

You need to get your Minds Right!

Everything is Terrific!

Vote for More of It!  Or we’ll keep blaming you.


“…What’s Happening Right in Front of Us.”

What do you say about the self-proclaimed “Most Transparent Administration in History” when you find out they are spying on American Citizens who have done nothing other than go about their lives?

If you found a way to defend that…

Then what do you say when you find out that the few, pathetic, rules restricting the access and use of the private information collected by the NSA were removed in 2011 by that same “Most Transparent Administration in History”?

Well… they did.  Full Story: Here

I must confess that I am not surprised…

The story held nothing that I haven’t already accepted to be true.

So why am I posting this?

It was a comment.  A small comment.  A comment that must be addressed.

Does the US Constitution mean anything anylonger? Seems like so many of our elected officials have taken a pair of scissors and cut out sections they don’t like of it leaving it in a cut up pile on the floor. Change has been brought to us, I am not sure many like it however.

The short answer to your question as to whether the US Constitution means anything any longer, JonQCit is «No». Then we could have a lengthy discussion about how long it’s been this way ; my suggestion would be at least since very soon after WW II, when the US government begain initiating and/or participating in foreign wars without the Congress, as is its duty under Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, declaring war (the last time the US Congress declared war was on 5 June 1942 on Bulgaria, Hungary, and Romania ; how many years has the US been at peace since that time ?)…

job, it’s the people fault, we have become so ideology driven we can’t see what’s happening right in front of us. (emphasis mine)
just read some comments, we have a government that is spying on us, they have reversed restrictions secretly and people still defend them, that’s why we have these problems.
It’s not JonQCit’s rhetorical question or mhenriday’s assertion.  It was the product of our government schools, maifgm, that made me feel sad.
I’m going to assume that maifgm meant “ideologically” when making his statement.
While I don’t disagree with the problems he identifies, it is not being driven by ideology which has brought us here unless he is speaking of Socialism.
In fact, it is the abandonment of Ideology and the rise of Compromise which have handed the Socialists their greatest victories.  It is exactly the Spirit of Compromise which handed them maifgm and probably the friend maifgm drinks with.  It is Bipartisanship, the Why Can’t We All Get Along mentality, that is happening right in front of us.
Depending on maifgm’s age I might not dump ton’s of derision upon his head… I suspect everything he thinks sounds nice with a little ecstasy and a techno music bed, but it is an illustration of profoundly confused thought.  It is the absence of critical thinking that must be corrected everywhere we look.  First with ourselves, then with our friends… particularly those we drink with.
Ideology is the answer.
Free-Market Capitalism is the only Ideology which protects us from Tyranny.
It’s time we embrace it.
If you don’t think so, I suspect you too are a product of our Government Schools and the intentional confusion they were paid to administer upon you.  But don’t feel bad because you’re not alone.
Because maifgm is right on one important point, “it is the people’s fault”.
However, it’s now up to you to correct it.

A Flaccid Weiner has no Future.

Has New York’s Anthony Weiner gone soft?

Weiner was one of the single most repulsively disingenuous, propaganda spewing, moon howling Progressives ever to trample little old ladies so he could get in front of a camera.  (Before you try to correct me, Schumer only gets a two out of three.)  He would scream his dissent until the throbbing veins popped out of his head to the point you thought he might explode.  It was TV gold.

So, what happened?

Apparently his handlers believe a “kinder, gentler” approach to politics will win him admirers.

The truth is, the only aspect of A. Weiner that was remotely interesting was his bombastic appearances on cable news nets trying to fill time. It was his Brand.

The picture of his schlong, sent to random females, was only a resume enhancement.  On paper it would have been listed under “hobbies”.  It’s so routine that there is a box to check on every Liberal job application.  “Do you send naked pictures of yourself to people you supposedly don’t know?  – Check:    Yes   or     Yes.”

Now we are being fed the idea that he has a future in New York politics by offering up this strange Weiner nobody knows. What he fails to understand is, it leaves him appearing limp and uninterested.

Hey Anthony!  If you want to be considered for any office… including Dog Catcher, you better get back to being the Dick your Leftist friends Love.


Andrew Cuomo Pounds Weiner.

Again… nothing to add…
