Symbolism Over Substance

After President Obama’s comments  during an interview with an NBC reporter in which he stated he ‘regretted the optics’ of racing out for a round, or two, of Golf after addressing the Nation regarding a Video of an ISIS Terrorist Hacking the Head off of an American Journalist with a Knife, I must restate an observation.

Liberalism, Progressivism, Socialism, Leftism… whatever you want to call it… is about Symbolism not Substance.

President Obama made it very clear he regretted the way his Golf Game was viewed… however, not the FACT he went out to play a game after the country was presented with such a horrific act.  Let me clarify, not just the Country but the entire World was presented with this atrocity and our President went out and played Golf.

The President is a genuine Democratic Socialist.  He’s the Real Deal.  The primary concern is how you see himnot what he does.

The Left can never have it any other way.

The reason for this is that you would NEVER like the substance if it were presented to you in an easy to understand, straight forward way. Never.

All that remains is Symbolism.

Democratic Socialists cannot allow themselves to be judged by what they are doing.  They must control the exposure the receive to insure You make all of your judgments of them based on Feelings… never Actions and Facts.

When Democrats Say they care about you and not just your vote… when Liberals claim to seek Equality… when both Democrats and Republicans pretend to champion Freedom and Liberty of the Individual, as our founders intended, they are employing Symbols. They have No Intention of following through with any of those things.  ‘It’s just the flowery rhetoric used to influence the Masses and get elected.’ – Every Liberal Republican and Democrat

Over 100-years ago Alcohol was removed as a viable way to but votes.  Now all they have left is to Lie to you, in any and every fashion you will accept.

And Lie they Do…

You’ll notice when the Masses push back, as in the case of the above Golf Game, Leftists will lament the way ‘it looked’ and not the act itself.  Then they will change the Lie, distract you with something else, or more often than not blame You for seeing it that way.

Why?  Because they know it works.

If they can ply you with imagery, powerful words and appealing promises, you have demonstrated, over and over, you will happily keep them in power.

In the End, that’s all that matters… To them.

And it is Your Fault.

Once you begin to watch what they DO in comparison to what they SAY it is a life-changing moment.  You will question all you think you know and believe.

But, you have to be intellectually honest enough with yourself to watch Them All… not just the ones you think… or someone else tells you to think… you disagree with.

It should make you uncomfortable… very uncomfortable.

 


Hurray for Mistrust!

According to a recent Study;

Young People Don’t Trust the Government!

Well it’s about D*mn Time..

Considering the Generations before them Trusted the Government and thus created the Rancid Pile of Poo Weasels along with the Statist Structure they Inhabit, I’m pleased to hear someone is coming to their senses.  I supposed the young folks might be taking a look at their inheritance and wondering what the rest of us were thinking.

This Government was not founded on the idea that all good things come from it.  In fact, this country was founded on the idea that limited Government is what would allow the individual to excel, and keeping the Government out-of-the-way, if not out-of-the-way at least close to home, was the key to a successful nation.

We are Never supposed to Trust Government.

We are supposed to recognize that the functions of Government are conducted by exactly the types of people the We Are.  Narcissistic, Egomaniacal, Self-Centered and Deeply Flawed.  The truth is Government actually ATTRACTS those types of people.  So what we try to deny to ourselves is Government over delivers when it comes to those you wish were not running things.  The Founders recognized, based on history, that the only way to address this problem was to Drastically Limit what it was The Government would be allowed to Run… by means of a Constitution.

The product of their deep mistrust of those elected to represent others was Checks and Balances.

So sure were the Founders that the biggest Thug in the Room would quickly take over through ‘legal’ means, they created a check on each of the three separate branches.

This was to Slow Things Down… if not stop things from happening altogether

Some of you Statists have intentionally changed the terminology to “Not Get Things Done…”, which if you mean not Race Forward to the Full Socialization of the United States then I’m good with that definition too.  The wisdom was that it is better the Government Do Nothing than Do Something Bad in terms of infringing on our Liberty.  I continue to Strongly Agree.

In the End,  we are NEVER to Trust Government.  Never, Never, Never!  We were Never, Never, Never, supposed to!

We are to hold all of those we elect to represent us with suspicion… particularly the ones we voted for.  American Exceptionalism Demands it.

We’re not exceptional because of what we do… we’re exceptional because of how we were founded and what that Protection of Freedom and Liberty of the Individual allows us to do.

That’s why we still have the longest waiting lines to come here legally.

However, we’re a mess, and…

Trust in Government is what landed us here.

It’s time for all of us to grow up and return to shouldering the responsibility our Founding Fathers expected us to carry.

If you want to Trust Government for some reason then Trust that They will do what benefits their power and wealth… Or at the very least suspect it.

Sound Cynical?  Well it is… look up the Cynics and understand what that means.  Cynicism is the Watchdog of Freedom.

It is our job to keep a close eye on these flawed humans, because no one else will and they have demonstrated for decades what they do when you aren’t looking.

May be the Children are our future after all.  Let’s hope they Nurture that Mistrust.

And, let’s hope the rest of us learn to recognize mistrust is… Good.


California Politicians

…Need to have a warning label placed on their Foreheads.

California Politicians have been on the Cutting Edge (Warning: Sharp instruments can be Hazardous to your Health.) of Protecting us from Ourselves by the Liberal Application of Warning Labels.  The Elitists recognize that if it wasn’t for them all the rest of us would have inadvertently killed ourselves long ago.

Their latest proposal is that all beverages containing levels of Sugar they don’t like have a Warning Label placed on the front of the drink declaring that Sugar is harmful and can lead to various maladies. The verbiage is as follows…  “STATE OF CALIFORNIA SAFETY WARNING:  Drinking Beverages with added sugar(s) contributes to obesity, diabetes, and tooth decay.”  (Bold and italics are mine.)

Okay, let’s take it at face value that the Politicians involved are genuinely concerned about the health of their constituency and not looking for larger donations from companies that produce beverages with “added sugar(s)” or own interest in a Warning Label company.

This deep feeling of responsibility for others being exhibited by California Politicians should then, logically, extend to a well-known and widely recognized Health Hazard.  California Politicians.

I, personally, am Deeply concerned.  Very deeply.  Something must be done.  We can’t just stand by and do nothing… There needs to be a Law.

I propose California Politicians, at every level, be required by Law to wear a plainly visible Unisex Headband, 24-hours a day, with the following warning…

“STATE OF CALIFORNIA SAFETY WARNING:  Interacting or Close Proximity to California Politicians contributes to bankruptcy, groping, and tooth decay.  If you can read this, you are too close.”

Problem solved.

And, That would be a Warning Label Law I could support spreading to every State in the Nation.
