How to Speak Progressive

All of you are about to enjoy the opportunity to learn “Progressive”.

The language of Progressive has been used for a 100 years. And for most of us, because it is difficult to use in everyday life, we have not learned it.

So now is your chance!

It will be demonstrated right in front of you on your television so you can see what it sounds like and how it is used.

Here’s what to look for…

Government run Health Care is a Progressive idea.

The evolution of this concept is what we are interested in here.

Let me illustrate and then you can turn on your television and witness it for yourself.

“Socialized Medicine”

Folks started to realize that Democratic Socialism was what Lenin wrote about profusely and lovingly, so it evolved to:

“Government Provided Health Care”

Government run anything, deservedly so, gets a negative connotation, so it evolves to:

“Single Payer Health Care”

Opponents to Socialized Medicine saw through this and attached the appropriate definition turning the focus groups against the term, so it evolves to:

“Universal Health Care”

But those same opponents to Socialized Medicine again show up and ruin this redefinition, so it evolves to:

“Medicare for All”

This one has yet to go south in the minds of the rigorous focus grouping as it is relatively “new” re-labeling of Socialized Medicine…

There is one question, and one take away, following this brief lesson in Progressive.

The question is “What will they call it next when folks like you figure out what it really is?”

The takeaway is that Socialists never give up… they know they’ll never get you to like what they want to do to you, they just make every effort to confuse you until you Beg them to do it.

Enjoy watching this for yourself!

Class dismissed.


Alphabet Soupgate.

The IRS, DOJ, DOD, CIA, BATFE and next up is the EPA…

Could the Liberal Blitzkrieg have encountered a Republican Winter?

It looks like they might be stalled right outside of their Social Utopia.

I tapped out a little ditty a while back regarding the pulling out of all the stops by the Leftists in Government.  I accused the Republicans (most of which I hold in low regard) of doing nothing to stop what was evident to every sober American… as well as me.

What I failed to take into account was the ability for the Progressives to over-reach.  And, over-reach they have.

It looks to me like the Republicans have no choice but to confront what seems to be the Hydrant Blasting abuse of power and Supercilious Subterfuge being conducted by the minions of Socialism.  It appears that all that Community Organizing has been a bit too effective in motivating the Useful Idiots.

Given the scandals at:

The IRS – targeting groups with Constitution and Patriot in their names because they are considered “the opposition” to the Administration.

The DOJ – using the power of government to covertly investigate members of the press while intimidated their sources.

The DOD – and it’s ties to the lack of response, and subsequent cover-up, during the assassination of our Diplomat and his security team in Benghazi.

The CIA – and the moving of missiles into Syria for the Al Qaeda backed rebels, possibly leading to a new “cold” war with Russia.

The BATFE – and the up-arming of Mexican Drug Cartels which led to the deaths of our Border and Immigration agents… not to mention hundreds of innocent Mexican women and children.

And now the EPA…  and a fabricated employee.  – Manti Te’o has nothing on Ms. Lisa Jackson who created a Mr. Richard Windsor in order to avoid scrutiny of her actions and decisions while serving as Head of the Environmental Protection Agency.  While she didn’t seem to relate her most intimate secrets through Mr. Windsor, she certainly expressed how she believed government’s purpose was to punish business.

“The  EPA and Ms. Lisa Jackson, its chief, have committed extensive violations of law  that should receive in-depth scrutiny from Congress, law enforcement and the  American people.  Yes the Obama administration has yet another serious  scandal on their hands.”

The full article is found at The American Thinker: here.  It’s absolutely worth the read.

The “surprising” revelations show no sign of stopping anytime soon.  And the Republicans are being dragged to the party in a meaningful way by the American people.  (Those damned TEA party types simply won’t go away… who do they think they are teaching folks about the constitution!)

This fall may exceed my greatest expectations in terms of political theater.

The only part of this I find truly amazing is that the Administration is doing nothing to put out any of these inferno’s.  At some point, someone has to get thrown in front of the bus.  Typically it happens sooner than later, because the longer you wait the more of them you have to throw.  But that’s the part I so truly enjoy…

So, I’ll fire up the grill, while Congress is forced by America to fire up the Special Prosecutors.

Nothing says summertime fun like grilling politicians.  (A helpful hint: They taste better if you tenderize them first.)


Cheap, Clean, Energy is not for You!

At least not if Liberals have anything to say about it.

Liberals will tell you that cheap energy is Destroying the Planet and must be prevented.  In the words of President Obama; “Energy prices must necessarily skyrocket…” .

(Honest Socialists will tell you that Cheap Energy, aka Fossil Fuel, is the Engine of Capitalism and must be stopped.)

Capitalists will tell you that cheap energy is a result of Capitalism and has served to improve everyone’s lives world over.  They will also point out that those countries using the largest amounts of Fossil Fuels do less harm to the environment by anyone’s measurement.  An Inconvienent Truth.

However…

The Honest Socialists are right, to a degree.

Cheap energy IS a major contributor to Capitalism in that it promotes Self-reliance and Individual Innovation.  Both of which are anathema to the Socialist Paradigm.  It’s worth noting that small deviations of this were evident in National Socialism which put it at odds with Democratic Socialists, so they killed each other in order to sort that out.  It’s interesting that Socialists love killing each other while also trying to destroy Capitalism.  Anyway…

It should be no surprise that Socialists (For our purposes here: “Greens”) do not like Natural Gas.  Greens Also Hate Nuclear…

These two facts should motivate every intellectually honest human on the planet to ask “Why?”

“Why do They like some Clean Energy and not other types of Clean Energy?” – curious guy 032713

I call it the “Two Applicant Theory”… or “The Reason Behind the Reason”.

My life experience has taught me that when asking someone why they are doing something that might seem odd, or questionable, they will always offer you the best reason available.

But rarely is the reason offered the real reason they are doing whatever it is they are doing.  Over the years, most of my time has been committed to finding out what the reason BEHIND the reason is.  In other words, what is truly motivating the individual I’m dealing with to do whatever it is they are doing.

In order to illustrate,

let’s go back to the “Two Applicant Theory”…

Say I have narrowed down Two Applicants for my personal secretary position.

In this case, both Applicants are female.

One is Smokin’ Hot. (Applicant 10)

One is Not. (Applicant 3)

I’m going to Hire Applicant 10.

Enter my Wife…  while I certainly do not have to ask permission to hire a personal secretary, I have to ask permission to hire a personal secretary.

Suffice to say She’s not exactly excited about one of my choices… it strangely happens to be Applicant 10.

I explain to her that the credentials of Applicant 10 are impeccable.  They show promise that is off the charts.  The experience She brings to the Table will do nothing but benefit the business.

I further explain that I’m also interested in Applicant 3… however, while her credentials and very good indeed I just don’t see the promise.

The REASON I’m offering here to justify my desire to ultimately hire Applicant 10 is her Overall Superiority and Future Promise, and any other plus associated with Objective variables I can find.

The REAL REASON is I want to sleep with Applicant 10.

OK Reader.. Put yourself in the place of my Wife… figuratively.  If I came right out and stated the real reason Behind the Reason what would your reaction be?  I’m guessing it would not lead to a paycheck for Applicant 10.  And probably a number of very, very quiet evenings at the dinner table.

The moral of this story is that people lie.  Everybody lies.  People do not want to be judged by their petty wants and desires, so they embrace a “reason” that others will find most difficult to position as negative.  And more importantly, a reason that anyone in control will find agreeable in the hopes they will get what they want.

OK.

So What does this have to do with Cheap Natural Gas!?

Socialists know that coming out and saying “Natural Gas is not Sexy because it does not force the Individual to spend all their money/energy on providing life’s basic necessities.” is a path to disaster for their dream of a Social Utopia.  They are well aware that if they say “Yes, we know that Solar and Wind Power don’t work yet, are not ready for the mass market and are ridiculously expensive… but it’s not about that, dummy!  It’s about slowing down Capitalism thus allowing Socialism to permeate the globe.” it would not find wide appeal.  At least not here in the United States.  Truth be told, once it starts effecting even the most French of countries they stop liking it.

So instead, Progressives try to craft a moral high ground on which to stand.  “Clean Energy like Solar and Wind Power (But not natural gas and nuclear…) are the Future!”

What’s interesting is that no one… no one… disagrees.  Clearly Solar and Wind Power is the Future, because they don’t work now!

But that’s not what they want you to here.  The next line is always; “WE must spend your tax dollars on it now… and WE must force you to buy Solar and Wind energy… For the children” even though it costs you money that could be spent on being Self-Reliant and Innovative.  (I added the last part, clearly they wouldn’t say that out loud.)

To the Left, there is nothing Sexy about cheap energy.

If Wind and Solar were cheap and plentiful the Progressives would find a reason to hate it, because it doesn’t address the reason behind the reason which is to slow the progress of Capitalism.

It’s a very simple scam to get you to waste your money/energy.

In fact it’s so simple, here’s a little video by Penn and Teller to help explain it. (Warning: Penn and Teller Video’s are not meant to be viewed by children of any age.)

“Force” is also why Man Made Global Warming is so incredibly important to Progressives.  If you believe what they are saying, then whatever change occurs, at any time, is a result of Man and his Infernal Innovations.  They point to CO2 as the “smoking gun” because they have decided that it is the “leading green house gas”.  They will not directly address the fact that Water Vapor is the leading green house gas and Methane comes in a close second… because… MAN doesn’t have much to do with those two gases.  And, how can you force individuals to waste their money/energy on stuff that doesn’t work unless you convince them that their actions are killing everybody?

Well… you can’t.

In truth… We don’t know for sure.  And no one… no one… opposes continued STUDY of climate.

But there is nothing Sexy about “We don’t know.”  You can’t make people do stuff with “We don’t know.”  You can’t force your ideas on other with the tag line “We don’t know.”

So the Leftists are telling your kids, you and anyone else who’ll listen… just not too closely… that They Know!

But now You Know!

It’s not about the Saving the Earth… it’s about Controlling it, and You, by slowing down the engine of Capitalism.

Socialists are about Control of the Individual.

Genuine Capitalists are not.

(I have used “money/energy” several times in the post.  It is a reference to God in the Machine by Isabel Paterson.)
