Hillary Needs a Leftist.

(Update 062515: Enter Bernie Sanders.  So… may be a buffoon.)

Not a Buffoon.

Time for some plain talk here folks.

Hillary Clinton has lost her supposed claim to the Democrat Nomination for President of the United States.

It is clear to her, and those close to her, that she will face a Primary Challenge.  While this was obviously not hoped for as she would have saved vast sums of donor dollars which could be spent in the General Election facing, odds are, some Evil Republican MAN… (Note: White doesn’t matter this time. (Of course, neither can being Old.))

It just is what it is.

Enter Martin O’Malley.

The former Governor from Maryland will not pose much of a foil for Hillary’s attempt to appear ‘Centrist’ and ‘Reasonable’.  This guy will self-destruct prematurely.  As far as I’m concerned he’s already old news.

So…

How about Native American Liz Warren?  While the hairy, man-hater, clubs across the country would love, love, love to see Warren run, she’s also not serious enough to help Hillary fit into a Rational Pant Suit.  And besides… girl on girl primary fighting does not fluff the War on Women narrative Hillary will need to cling to during the General… when she’s running against, odds are, an Evil Republican MAN… (White Doesn’t matter this time.)

The name to watch?

Senator Jim Webb.

While Webb is guilty of writing some Odd Porn

That’s about it.

The rest of his Progressive Leftist Resume is solid… for a Socialist.

Military Vet-Marine, former Secretary of the Navy, Author, Hates Bush (The former president), subscribes to the Individual being Forced to sacrifice to the Group, and… convinced he’s Smarter than You…  Perfect.  (Add to that the Odd Porn issue will most likely be considered a resume enhancement by Liberals.)

If Hillary is Hoping to assume the Presidency, she is going to have to come out of a serious Primary with a victory over a ‘serious’ opponent the likes of Webb.

Grab the popcorn.

And the beer.

Gruber Government

From the anals of Washington Elitist Government comes the latest in ‘How to get things done when the American Public is just too Stupid to understand‘.

This is why Cynicism is the Only, Constant and Always method to view those we elect… especially those we vote for.

Republican Leftist Paul Ryan has joined Democrat Leftist Progressive Nancy Pelosi in the Jonathan Gruber School of Governing with his latest demand that you will only be allowed to see what’s in the Obamatrade Act after your representatives Pass it.

I don’t believe you need to be reminded what a debacle Obamacare is… and getting worse. So I won’t.

Now we’re told that we are again too stupid to be allowed to see what’s in a sweeping, certainly not limited to what we would think is “trade”, Trade Act before we are all subject to it.

From what small snippets have been leaked, and adding together soundbites from the three people who have at least gone down to the Capital Dungeon to ‘read’ it, there is enough for everyone to hate. The Washington Elites would tell you “That’s how the sausage is made, and it represents a ‘Good Compromise‘.” I would offer it is also how fecal matter is made and represents the very same… just like Obamacare.

So we are told by a supposed “Conservative” that we must pass it to see what’s in it.

Clearly the Democrats who oppose it are not interested in ‘passing it to see what’s in it’… primarily because they are not at all sure they will hold the Presidency in the next term, and are not interested in the profound power which will be moved from the Legislative Branch to the Executive Branch.

And the few “Constitutional Originalists” we have left in the Conservative Movement (read ‘non-leftist’) who are still acting that way, oppose it because it will amount to several anti-capitalist results.

First, there can be little doubt that our allies in Europe have prolonged the Doom of Greece, and the Drowning of the EU, in the hopes that something in the deal Bails out their Socialist Union Scheme which many of us said would fail. We knew this back in the Nineties because people and nations lie… and always will… nothing is new under the sun. (Note: Jeb Bush is meeting with European leaders who are looking for reassurance should he become president that he would not interfere with this new, expected to be shoved down the throats of the American People, EU Bail Out/Trade Act.)

We must begin asking ourselves why American Tax Dollars should continue to go to bailing out Failed Socialist Schemes and the long-dead Socialist ideology those schemes are built upon. Reinforcing Oppression, Death and Destruction should not be a committment made by The United States of America. The Western Socialist Democracies need to be allowed Fail on their own so they will modify their behavior. They have survived at the teat of American Free-Market Capitalism (in what feeble form it exists) for well over 100-years. The time is Now to Stop Enabling Elitist Control and Class Stasis of Fascist/Socialist A-Holes.  But it starts at home…

Second, there is little doubt that this ‘Trade’ bill will magically include Immigration Powers not before held by the Executive Branch. Just as the Commerce Clause has over time been perverted to mean just about anything, and everything, depending on what some person in power wanted it to mean…
Now it will be ‘Trade’. We have mechanisms in place to deal with immigration, but the survival of the Leftist Socialist-Fascist movement in this country depends on new government dependants. Whether these dependants are from other countries, or home-grown, doesn’t matter to the Socialists. As long as they get to vote… and vote for their redistributed ‘paycheck’, Liberalism survives.

Third, this Act will certainly create the very same type of Socialist Symbiosis represented by the European Union and carry with it the very same ‘certain to fail’ model. Just like Obamacare destroying the finest Medical system on the planet, why do we do this to ourselves? The answer is simple. The Socialists believe that it’s not the failure of their ideas. Rather, it’s that their ideas have never been allowed to catch up to the wild success of Self Determination and Free-Market Capitalism (in what feeble form it exists). They continue to fully subscribe to centralized control while anointing themselves Philosopher Kings. It truly is a Fatal Conceit.

Sure… if you’re Leftist Progressive you might think this is super cool. But once you think past the Trees and see the Forest (Something most Liberals are intentionally never taught to do) you clearly see that these powers are assigned to the Executive Branch, not just Liberal leftist Socialist progressives when they hold the Executive Branch.  Thus the push back from the Leftists… and frankly, a main reason the Leftist Light Republicans support it.

The United States is now run by those who seek to protect Government from us, not protect us from Government.

Are we going to allow Jonathan Gruber to be correct when he says “The American People are too Stupid to know what’s going on.”?

We proved him right not long ago with Obamacare…

So…

Probably.


Jeb’s Brother From Another Mother…

Jeb Bush is refusing to discuss the illegalities associated with Foreign donations to The Clinton Foundation and subsequent State Department Favors being Doled Out by Hillary.

Jeb will not be forced to criticize his “Brother From Another Mother.” Bill Clinton or Bill’s Wife… H.R. Clinton.

Keeping it in the Family…

Clinton-Bush

The Winning Ticket for 2016!

Are You Ready?!

Jebillary!

 


Nancy Pelosi Stretches the Truth

brazil[1]

Nancy Pelosi has a Habit.

It Looks like an Addiction.

It Might be an Illness.

She Stretches the Truth…

Minority Leader Pelosi is following up some of her Greatest Hits such as “I’m a Good Catholic” and “We Have to Pass the Bill in order to See What’s in it.”.

Ms. Pelosi skipped Mass and visited Candy Crowley Sunday Morning to make sure we all Realize what a terrific Success Obama Care… Sorry… (“There’s no such thing as Obama Care!!!”) the Affordable Care Act is.

Against all Evidence, it is clear to Liberals that the Government Control of the Health Care Industry is a Winner!

According to Every Democrat not currently in jeopardy of losing their elected office, The ACA is the Greatest piece of Legislation produced in our Lifetime.

Really… it’s just That Great!

So let’s review:

5 Million Individuals have been kicked off of their Insurance Plans so far.  (If you like your Plan you can Keep it.  The Republicans are Lying.)

6 Million People have “enrolled” in Obama Care.  (7.1 Million if you include those enrollments the Government has taken the Liberty to initiate on your behalf.  Your Welcome.)

15-20% Have not paid the first months fee.  (But this is according to Blue Cross/Blue Shield.  And we all know they Hate People.)

Obama Care will Lower your Decductable by $2500 a year.  (Whoops.)

We are beginning to see Testimonials from those who have lost their Doctors. (If you like your Doctor you can Keep your Doctor.  The Republicans are Lying.)

We are beginning to see Testimonials from those with Pre-existing conditions Who can no longer find Care.  (Pre-existing Conditions was a prominent justification for the Destruction of the Free-Market Health Care System and the subsequent Government Control.  The Republicans told you this would happen… but They’re Liars.)

Young Healthy people are not interested in subsidizing my poor Eating and Drinking habits… let alone my Heroin addiction.  So They’re not signing up.  And Those dumb enough to actually get as far as “enrolling” are not paying for it.  Somehow they thought it was supposed to be “Free”.  (Damned Kids, Who were They listening to?)

Obama Care is still the First Time in US History that the Federal Government is Forcing Citizens to Purchase something.  (We just need to modify the definition of Freedom… no problem.)

So, I guess if your only criteria for declaring something a Massive Success is how quickly the Government can Take it Over and dismantle any vestige of its previous existence, then Yes, Obama Care is a Terrific Achievement.

But if you’re Ms. Pelosi deep down you know the truth… so you resurrect Old Demons.

Everything that is Bad, such as the Current Economy and the CIA 10 years ago but not now, is George Bush and Dick Cheney’s fault.   Oh.. and Paul Ryan is an Ideological Radical.  (I wish.)

Candy Seems to agree.

Guinea Pigs

Here’s the deal, I want my stuff to work.

I expect the stuff I buy to perform as promised.  If it doesn’t work I want my money back and I’ll get something that works.  My life is easy that way… and I have Rich People to thank.

Not only do they own and operate the places that make and sell me the stuff I want, they are the guinea pigs for the crap that might work but typically doesn’t.

If it wasn’t for rich people I wouldn’t have a 32″ flat screen in my home because there wouldn’t have been anybody foolish enough to pay $3000 for the same TV just a few years ago.

If it wasn’t for Rich People I wouldn’t be sure that the air bags in my car would work because there would never have been anybody foolish enough to buy them in overpriced high-end cars so the bugs could be worked out.  Suckers!

If it wasn’t for Rich People I wouldn’t be able to avoid cooking at home because of all the various Tasty Restaurants out there that they bank roll on behalf of their friends and family.

If it wasn’t for Rich people I wouldn’t have the “routine” knee surgery with only three tiny holes in my leg because no-one would have had the money to risk on creating the arthroscopic technology… the old way worked just not as well and with far more side effects and big scars.  So the Rich opted to go the new way, making it cheaper and more available for the rest of us.

If it wasn’t for rich people wanting the “best” first then all of us would suffer ridiculously high prices for far from reliable products.  These “early adopters” are the test subjects, lab rats, beta testers… Guinea Pigs.

Product developers cannot work out all of the problems with a new product until they get them out into “real world” situations which means in the hands of consumers that use them in ways never imagined.  These consumers are the rich people and their family, friends and associates.  (que evil laugh: Bhaa..Ha, ha, ha…..)

I love that Rich People are the guinea pigs, and not me… I also love that Rich People pay enormous sums just for the privilege.  These enormous sums keep the rest of us employed trying out new ideas on them… Brilliant!

So thank you Rich People for buying big, over priced, crappy cars.  And thank you for getting addicted to Personal Computers, Crackberrys not to mention Palm pilots with their own language you had to learn to write (remember those?).  Please also accept my gratitude for buying horrible little green electric death traps you pretend are cars, because I know eventually your ridiculous desire to make a statement will lead to something worthwhile for me… like a huge electric 600 horse-power 4-door 4×4 pick-up truck.  (I’m waiting…)

In the End,

We don’t need them to be nice… we just need them to be Rich.

Contrary to what non-thinkers want you to believe…

We should never promote the Government TAKING their money… instead we should always promote an environment where they SPEND their money, Voluntarily.  ‘Redistirubtuion does not have to be forced… it happens everyday, all by itself.  Only Theft must be Forced.  (Because, if the The Bloated, Wasteful Government can TAKE ‘Their” money they can TAKE “Our” money too.  Not cool.)

So, I raise my glass of 12-year-old imported scotch that I only paid $20 bucks for because you guys drink tons of it!

Thank you Rich People!

Cheers!

“Why do people Hate Capitalism?”

(I’m addressing this as it shows up in my ‘top search’ stats almost daily.)

The reason so many people Hate Capitalism is because we are all being told, via the Mass Media and our Leftist Elected Officials World over, that Fascism is Capitalism.

Read the above line again… slowly… I’ll wait.

Done?

OK then.  Here we go.

Fascism is not Capitalism.  Capitalism is not Fascism.  The two are mutually exclusive.

Fascism is simply a variant of Socialism.  It provides for private ownership of business as long as the businesses, and the owners, are controlled by Government via taxation, regulation, party membership, political dictate etc.  That’s the only difference.  All other aspects of Fascism are purely Socialist in nature.

The above sets up a model where it appears Corporations Control Government… and that ‘control’ allows them to profit utilizing Government Force.  While this is true, it’s only half right.  Well, not exactly half right… it’s actually half right but reversed.

It is Government Force which controls Business and that Force places Business in the position of having to support Politicians.

There it is.

It’s always Force…

So the truth is found in the other half of the equation.  When you realize that the politicians use this power, or the threat of it, so they can extort donations (most often in the most subtle, gentle and softly insidious ways) from the business owners, you gave arrived at understanding the state we are currently in.

But, as is typical, the Left intentionally sees only half of the problem.  They want you to blame the Corporations and never the Government.

But you can’t Blame the Corporations and not also Blame the Government…

The Federal Government was never intended to have the power which business owners would find attractive enough to enter into such an incestuous relationship.

So now that you understand the problem, what do we do about it?

The only way to get to real Free-Market Capitalism is to remove the ability of Force from the Federal Government over Business.

What this means is Polticians at the Federal must be returned to their previous state of limit upon their power to grant favors and create ‘barriers to entry’ within the market place.

Once removed, businesses will not be incented to give large sums of money to elected officials save for ideological reasons.

This would go a long way to restoring the United States to its once great place in the World.

At the end of the day, the Left will always Hate Capitalism, and the Voluntary Exchange associated with it, because it does not require the ‘brilliance’ of their control.  It works just fine without their help.  Clearly Administrators will never like such an idea.

If you’re a person who thinks they know what’s best for everyone else… Freedom and Liberty of the Individual combined with the Natural Right to be secure in one’s property… all protected by Free markets and Constitutionally Limited Government… are extraordinarily crappy ideas.  And whatever it takes to gain and maintain control over others will be preferred to truth.

For the rest of us, we have to recognize we are being lied to about what Capitalism is.

And we must recognize its intentional.

The Socialists hope we’ll think Capitalism is the root of all Evil, when in fact it’s Socialism that Sucks.


Why is Fair a Dirty Word?

Many of us think all things should be Fair.

But this thought illustrates two things about us…

First, we cannot comprehend that fairness does not, nor will, ever exist anywhere in nature.

Second, it shows our predisposition to Envy those around us, because if we didn’t there would be no need to seek a platitude like “Fair”.

Yet, This is what motivates Outcome based Egalitarians, Progressives, Democrats, Liberals and Leftists of all stripes.

Why?

Because Envy is powerful… ,

Balkanization Easy,

And Economic Understanding weak.

F#@!

Abdicating our Moral Authority

It has long been the Leftist goal to remove Moral Authority from the United States.

And, it seems they have.

To tap out the rest of this post demands a discussion on American Exceptionalism.  So here goes.

Liberals would have you believe American Exceptionalism is the feeling American’s have where they see themselves as Superior Individuals compared to all the rest of the Worlds inhabitants.  It’s imperative for the Progressive Left to keep this definition alive in the minds of their followers because a genuine understanding of American Exceptionalism would lead their minions away from the Socialist Agenda for America.

In truth, American Exceptionalism in not about you, me, or any individual.  It’s about the way this country was founded.  When the term American Exceptionalism is employed it refers to the Freedom and Liberty of the Individual this Country was designed to protect.  It refers to our Natural Right’s which we possess not by the grace of government but by the fact we Exist as Individual Human Beings.  It refers to a structure unique in the World.  An Experiment which has demonstrated Self Governance and the profound acceleration of achievement such Liberty and Freedom fosters.  We were designed to Govern from the Bottom Up… not from the Top Down.  We were established where Government worked for us and was intentionally kept small so not to interfere with our lives.  This Design separates us from every other country in the World, or at least it once did.  And the reason this has changed is not because other Nations have adopted our Revolutionary Idea of Government.  Quite the opposite.

But back to the point, the Left cannot have an honest conversation regarding American Exceptionalism because it supports removal of the power of State over Citizen.  It questions the application of Force the Social Democrat requires in order to guarantee you’re making the ‘choices’ they demand you make.  And that kind of questioning cannot be allowed.

So here we are…

What frayed remnants of the United States’ original form we see today is very close to being beyond mending.

The Socialist Left has been able, through a determined war of attrition, to dismantle the protections once held so closely by every American Citizen.  They have overtly disregarded the Constitution by placing Liberal Judges in appointed positions to ‘interpret’ law in whatever way favors their agenda, convinced the public to elect politicians who refuse to be honest about their designs for the country until they wrest enough influence that they cannot be stopped, and most insidiously created Addicts of the Citizenry by handing them other people’s money and making them dependents upon the Statist system… thus cementing their hold on power.

After decades of the above,

We can no longer claim to be the Champions of Freedom and Liberty.

We can no longer claim to stand for Individual Rights and Self Governance.

There was a time our adventures around the Globe were cloaked in the mantle of Moral Superiority.

Rightly so.

And that Superiority was recognized by the World.

No other Country on Earth had the long waiting lists of those who wished to enjoy the Freedoms The United States offered to every Individual.

There can be no greater endorsement of this Great Experiment.

But in a relative short period of time, the Left has succeeded in creating an America that is similar if not identical to every Socialist Democracy World over.  They achieved this by abandoning the Individual for the State.  Their Victory is the Moral high ground once possessed by the united States has been lost.

Like a self-fulfilling prophecy, The Progressives have long told us we are oppressors, and have subsequently made us so through their actions.

The United States is not Special.  Or certainly not as special as it once was.

We have stood (and some might offer standing) idly by and watched the death of the Individual, and all the creativity, energy and drive that free human beings bring to the World.

There is no longer such a thing as American Exceptionalism.

The Left has finally created the World they accused us of having all along.

And, as it is with all things Marxist… nothing can be unique.

Through the designs of the Liberal Left, We have abdicated our moral authority… and become everyone else.

Now that we Ceded our Moral Authority, we must question everything our Country does.  We must question every decision our Representatives make.  We must join the World in mistrust of American Actions…

…just not for the same reasons.

Can we return to being the Shining City on the Hill?

Or, Will we stand by while our light is extinguished and allow ourselves to be forever hidden from a World longing for Freedom?

To the last question… Apparently, yes.


You’re Stupid.

And, because You’re Stupid, the Smart People don’t owe you the Truth.

Why?

Because They Know You’re Stupid and You will not Understand the Brilliance of Their Ideas.

They also Know due to Your Stupidity you may not agree with what They want to do, and that would necessitate further explanation and possibly debate. Both of which could lead to not getting done what They want to do.

Finally, They consider Themselves ‘Elite’ which means Superior… to Stupid people like You. They might have been told this throughout their lives by family and friends, or they may just believe it because of a mental disorder. But none the less, They feel Themselves to be Smarter than You. This is what justifies, in Their minds, Their Lying to You because you’re too Stupid to understand anyway.

But Wouldn’t They be afraid We would figure it out?

No. Remember, You’re Stupid.

So Who are these People?

They are composed of Socialists and Fascists (a subgroup of Socialism).  They reside in the Totality of the Democrat Party, but there exist many Republicans and Independents who subscribe to the same Ideology.  There are even some very confused Libertarians out there as well.  Almost always they can be spotted by how they espouse a belief that they are superior to others… who are not around to hear them.  So listen carefully.

And, Why are they Lying exactly?

The Elitists will Lie to you because They believe there should be no debate about Their ideas. They also believe You must be saved from yourself… by Them. Neither of which seems to be warmly received by those They label Stupid (You).

When did this Start!?

It’s a behavior as old as time itself. The idea of Slavery under a ruling Class of Elites has been the basis for every Government on the Planet from Monarchy to Dictatorship.  It is alive and well in China, Russia, Mexico, Canada, Europe and the rest of the World.  It just so happens that the last couple of hundred years it’s found a home in the ideology of Socialism, and it’s variants, here in the U.S.  They arrived at this power by telling you, your parents, and your parent’s parents, that they will ‘fight for you’ and ‘champion equal rights for everyone’.  When in truth, the only thing they give you is that which doesn’t directly effect Them negatively and/or threaten Their Power.

A single Glaring Example; They have taken over the Public Education system in order to keep all of us as ‘Stupid’ as possible.  Without much energy you can see Their Elitist condescension through the fact that They refuse to send Their kids to the schools They run.  I have stated many times, if we want to clean up our public school system Force EVERYONE to use it… or restore the right for EVERYONE not to use it.

How do We Stop Them?

Very Good Question.

First, Make an Effort to really understand what’s going on around you.

Second, Stop listening to the Old Media which was taken over by Liberal Leftists 70 years ago.

Third, take the time to understand the ‘Why’ behind the U.S. Constitution.  This alone will lead you to an understanding of Individual Freedom, Liberty, Right to Property and Limited Government… all four of which are anathema to Elitists.  (Warning: While Socialists may say they are for these things, it is only for Them… not for You.  Why?  Because You’re Stupid, remember?  Of course they will never champion Limited Government as They need Government Force to make you do what They expect you to.)

Such a course of action will also lead you to understand Free Market Capitalism and the Invisible Hand… both of which the Elites despise as neither requires Their supposed brilliance.  And, both leave you in charge of making decisions for yourself… which cannot be tolerated, because… wait for it…  You’re Stupid.

In the End, Stupid is as Stupid does.

So Stop listening to, and worse, electing, those who Believe you are Stupid.

Because that’s Stupid.

Please Don’t be Stupid.


Socialism. Why Not?

Let’s be honest…

You know you’re Smarter than most people.

You’re certain the only thing that happens when other people are given the ability to make their own decisions is they make the wrong ones…

It’s clear to you that everyone is better off having Smart folks like you in charge of things…

Why?  Because life is complicated, and requires the best and brightest to navigate it… especially for everyone else.

Of course You believe in Freedom!

Freedom is not having to constantly make choices about everything…

Of course You believe in Liberty!

Liberty is not having a bunch of responsibilities taking away from the stuff you want to do…

But you also believe in Good Government!

Because Government is the source of all things good in the World…

You weren’t born yesterday… you know what’s Bad!

Corporations are the root of all things Bad…

You also know who the Racists are!

You know for a fact that anyone who opposes the things you think to be true are racists… even those who are minorities.

And you realize the debate is Over!

You are Far too Intelligent… to argue with anyone who doesn’t agree with you.

In the End… There is no question You must save the rest of us from Ourselves.

And, if all it takes is forcing a bunch of people to make the right decisions…

Why Not?
