So there I was, Minding my own Scotch… and I get a message from X. In the most perfunctory way possible he made clear it was time for me to dig myself out from the secure comfort I’ve been enjoying and return to the fray.
Who am I to disagree?
I have to say right up front, it has been an exciting few months. From the ANTIFA-Facists to the complete fabrication of accusations used to slime a man who is far better than I, the Theater of the Absurd never ends.
The timeliness of X’s prompt is exquisite. It just so happened that I was struck by something so profoundly stupid that I was seriously considering putting my drink down. So let’s go there first…
A Gentleman by the name of Ruchir Sharma said the following on what used to be a go to network for business news;
“We may or may not believe in [American exceptionalism], but the financial markets have never believed in it to such an extent,” added Sharma, head of emerging markets and chief global strategist at Morgan Stanley Investment Management.”
Please read that again real quick.
I would ask Mr. Sharma what American Exceptionalism has to do with a booming economy? If he is speaking to Property Rights and the influx of foreign investment which is recognizing the United States as a Safe Haven for their wealth, then okay… maybe… but I’m not sure he is. I believe he is conflating the financial success of the current economic reforms, which are returning the United States to its position as the World Leading Economic Engine, with Freedom and Liberty of the Individual. I would then remind Mr. Sharma that it is the latter which constitutes “American Exceptionalism”.
Why is this such a big deal?
It’s a big friggin’ deal because the Socialist Democrats have been diligently dumbing down our population for decades in the hopes ‘educated’ individuals like Mr. Sharma will intentionally or unintentionally continue to do their work for them. Sadly, they have been very, very, successful.
However, in his defense let’s assume Mr. Sharma knows what American Exceptionalism is. Now let’s take the beginning of his assertion… “We may or may not believe in [American Exceptionalism]…”. I then have to ask who it is that does not believe in Freedom and Liberty of the Individual? You speak as if you know or this opening qualification would not be necessary.
Yes, yes… I know these people are out there Hammering away at the Malleable Proletariat but I like to have them on the record so we all know who they are which is why I ask. (One of the reasons I’ve been hiding out around the Barnes and Noble in Tyson’s Corner, aside from all the TOTALLY COMMON and super awesome Gang Rape Parties that EVERYONE has ALL THE TIME around the short hop to Bethesda, is watching how Trump’s mere existence is bringing these Socialist Democrat A-holes out into the open.)
So Who is it, Mr. Sharma, that does not believe in American Exceptionalism? Who is it exactly that does not believe in the Freedom and Liberty of the Individual and the power inalienable rights has unleashed upon the World propelling the United States to the most powerful country on Earth in just a short few hundred years? Who are these people who believe a person’s rights are bestowed upon them by Government made up of fallible, elitist, narcissistic beings and not God… or the Universe… or simply because they Exist?
It’s okay, Mr. Sharma, I know you can’t do this for several of reasons. 1.) You may be one of those people. 2.) You like your paid gig and wish to keep it by specifically not offending those fallible, narcissistic elitists who employ you. 3.) Both 1 and 2.
So allow me to say what I’m hoping you meant to say.
The Current Economic Boom occurring in The United States is substantially due to the removal of barriers upon the Engine of Capitalism which were erected by Socialist Scum as they believe it’s not ‘Fair’ that Free (er) Markets are so damned successful and restraining them is the only hope for their foolish Command and Control Economic Idiocy to catch up.
Giving you the benefit of the doubt, I’m sure that’s what you wanted to say…
Now we wait for Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg to retire and the ensuing melt down.
The Left is the proverbial ‘drowning man’… it’s going to get worse before it gets better.

Many years and countless hours of studying Socialist countries has presented me with two absolute and demonstrable facts.
First, Socialism never works no matter how much your local Socialist wants or wishes it too. Or for that matter, tells themselves it does.
Second, Free Market Capitalism is the default state of economics.
Without fail, once established and entrenched, a socialized economy gives birth to a separate and “unequal” system of trade.
A system of trade that is not controlled by the state. It has many names such a black, grey, underground and illegal… but those in charge never call it “free” which is exactly what it is. (In Russia there was a simple rule everyone lived by… if you see a line get in it. They knew that whatever was at the other end, whether they wanted it or not, could be traded for something they did want.)
The Socialists have attempted every imaginable idea to stop Capitalism in its tracks but have succeeded only in slowing it down and creating distortions which they then blame on the very free market they distorted.
They stare dumbfounded at a system of trade that does not require their genius, planning or input, to be successful.
So, Throughout history the Free Market has ruled unmatched in it’s success and durability as the premier economic system.
(An aside: I’ve encountered a school of liberalism (a poorly educated one) that has labeled Free Market trade as “Smithian Capitalism”. I would remind these Elitist Know Nothings that Smith was simply an observer and recorded what had been evident for millennia. Just because he was the first to organize it on paper does not make him the architect of voluntary trade.)
Free trade has flourished under monarchies and Marxism alike.
It cannot be stopped… but that seems to be one of the tenets of our present day, home-grown Socialists. There is an ongoing effort to slow Capitalism down with policy issues like global warming which then lead to ideas like cap-and-trade etc. Ironically it is the resistance from the rest of the socialized world which stands in the way of these ill-founded ideas… the Communist Chinese understand the value of free market trade which is why Hong Kong has been left alone. But they also recognize the inability to control a population enjoying a Free-Market, which is why they have not officially adopted the economic system for China proper.
But the point is, when the superiority of Free Market Capitalism is recognized even by those who wish to see it go away, you have to ask yourself why are we still fighting with these same types of people at home?
I have and will continue to offer it is about Power and Control… it is about a mindset that see themselves so superior to you that the concept of not making your decisions for you is unthinkable. In their minds, It is about keeping you from always making the wrong choice because you’re too stupid to know better.
We finally have a single country, in the United States of America, founded on the beneficial evidence of individual rights, voluntary trade and property rights. And the Left can’t leave it alone.
I’m tired of placating these people and their oppressive ideas coated with a candy glaze of “fairness”. Simply being born in a country doesn’t make it “yours”. If we are not racists then we should surely not be “Geographists” either. We should organize ourselves according to ideas on Individual Freedom and Liberty. Those who do not believe in how this country was founded need only find a country where their ideas fit in.
Socialists already own most of the planet… how is that working out for them? Surely the EU could use the brilliance of our modern day Left to help them put their Socialist Utopia back in order.
“If you destroy a free market; you create a black market.” – Winston Churchill

There has been much talk lately about our President being Feckless.
I cannot stand idly by and allow such charges to go unchallenged!
Our President deserves the respect he has earned and I’m here to offer a defense in his absence.
President Obama is quite an accomplished Fecker.
He has employed his talent to Feck up:
The Middle East – on Fecking fire.
The Economy – Completely Fecked.
Our Health Care – Fecked and getting even more Fecked.
The Free Market – Fecked-Up Beyond All Recognition.
He continues to Feck with our personal liberty, our freedom and our property rights.
Frankly, he came into office promising to Feck-up everything in his “Blue print for America” and he has accomplished many of his Fecking goals.
So anyone accusing him of being Feckless is simply wrong, he has Fecked-up almost everything.
I think he has done a fantastic job Fecking everyone.
And, I don’t know about you but I feel like I’ve been Fecked enough by the President.
But I guess there are still folks out there who need some more Fecking… (They’ll be voting for Bill’s wife.)
(It’s been a while since this post, but apparently someone broke out their thesaurus again… so I couldn’t resist… again… and again.)

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

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 him… not 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.

Apparently it’s no longer a laugh line from Monty Python’s Holy Grail.
According to our Attorney General, Eric Holder, it’s “your duty” to retreat when threatened.
Your Duty… to Run Away.
[ dootee ]
- obligation: something that somebody is obliged to do for moral, legal, or religious reasons
[ thret ]
- declaration of intent to cause harm: the expression of an intention to cause harm or pain
- sign of something bad: an indication that something unpleasant or dangerous is going to happen
- somebody or something likely to cause harm: a person, animal, or thing likely to cause harm or pain
Please take a moment and think about this.
Our Attorney General, who is the legal mouthpiece for the President of the United States, has stated in no uncertain terms that you must retreat when threatened by anyone wishing to do you harm. And make no mistake… taking your stuff, threatening your well-being, or both, is “doing you harm”.
According to Mr. Holder, you are obligated to give that person, or persons, whatever they want if they demand it. Could be your Wedding Ring, could be your child, could be your body.
You have no right to protect yourself, or your property, if another individual is willing to harm you.
Sounds to me like it’s “Open Season” on all of us who are not inclined to break the law. Sounds like a Thug empowerment seminar. Sounds like pandering for the criminal vote.
The only legitimacy this idea enjoys is born out of the concept that we should leave such matters to the police (the government). It is a flawed idea.
I respect the police. It is a difficult and dangerous job.
However, the police are the SECOND line of defense against crime. They exist to catch criminals AFTER they have committed the crime… as it should be.
YOU are the FIRST line of defense… as it should be.
Why is this?
Because you do not… do not… do not… want to live in a country where there is a police officer on every corner. These places exist, and judging by the numbers, you don’t even choose to vacation there.
So, this leaves YOU. And surprisingly unknown to our current leaders, our country was designed that way. The responsibility to defend ourselves is integral to our freedom and liberty. In fact, our ability to defend ourselves, and our property, is considered an inalienable right. Does that phrase sound familiar? It should.
As you age, and pay attention, it becomes disconcerting when you realize the level of ignorance some of us find acceptable in our leaders.
Or is it ignorance?
Could it be they know exactly what they are saying?
If so, does that make you feel better?
