Twisted by Knaves to Make a Trap for Fools…

Force is a terrible idea…

…Unless it’s my idea.

And so goes what passes for debate built on principles of sand.

There is a trick played on us.  It’s a simple trick, a trick for the Simple that is.  And the fact we fall for it is more an indictment of ourselves than those Knaves who play it.

The Trick is to foment a fight were there was none.

The Goal is get Us to concede something we don’t realize we’re arguing about…

It works like this;

If you believe that Force is a wonderful thing and People are too Stupid to know what’s best for themselves… then you also believe that Vaccinations must be compulsory.  In other words, Vaccines save lives and the Masses are too idiotic to choose to get them.  (Explaining the benefits of Vaccines is just not enough and besides it takes too long, and too much effort, to argue the benefits with a bunch of Morons.  You get it… because you’re Smart.  Having to compete in the arena of ideas is just prodding the Sheep into the right decision assuming they accidentally understand your brilliance.)

At the same time, when you know that your ideological opponents profess to believe that Force is a terrible idea and all things should be Voluntary, you create an argument over… say… said Vaccines.  (The topic is interchangeable.)

The Goal is to get your ideological enemy to agree that Force (The foundation of your Progressive ideology) is a Good idea.  Even if they qualify it with the caveat of “Only sometimes”, you have won the Greater Argument your opponent doesn’t even recognize he’s having.

All that remains is who gets to decide what cases qualify as ‘Sometimes’.  And, of course, The Real Power lies in being The Decider.

Once a Liberal has this Foolish Victory they quickly move on to Compulsory Health Care… Compulsory Diet Plans for Public Schools… Compulsory Education…  Compulsory EPA regulations… Compulsory Redistribution… Etc… Etc.  Demanding you go on the record as to exactly WHEN it’s OK to Force.

Now the conversation has moved away from Force as an idea and on to exactly What will be Forced.

From a Progressive point of view, its Brilliant.  It keeps your Ideological Enemies on the Perpetual Defensive and leaves them no option but to be the one’s to say “No”.  (Ever hear the phrase “The Party of ‘No’.?)

Supposed Conservatives fall into this Socialist Trap all the time.  And because they spend little time Thinking about what they think and Why, they deserve it.

The Socialists set their opposition up to get them to concede their principles shift with the wind making them worthless if not non-existent.

Liberal Progressives believe in Force.  They believe you’re Stupid.  They believe the only thing they can count on is given a decision to make you’ll make the wrong one.

That is the divide.

Force versus Freedom.

All arguments reduce to this.

Unfortunately, Conservatives seem content to have Lucy hold the football.

Another example is the “Gay Marriage” debate.

This ‘argument’ has both sides FIGHTING for Government approval.

Do you see the faulty premise here?

Why is the question not “What is Government doing being involved in one’s marriage in the first place?”

Why on Earth would any person, Gay, Straight or Slightly Bent, beg the approval of the Government as a validation of their ‘deeply personal’ marriage.

Why would the debate not center around all partnerships being contractual civil unions between two individuals and leave marriage to the Church of your choice?

Because…

It’s not about validating a union between two people.

It’s only about validating the Concept of Government Interference and Involvement.

It’s about Force…

Telling us who we can, or cannot, marry and charging us a fee for the privilege.

I always thought Charlie Brown should have run as hard as he could and Kicked Lucy in the Head instead.

Seems harsh, but it would be the last time she pulled the ball away.

Until that happens… Republicans have no ground to be surprised when they are accused of being a distinction without a difference in comparison to Democrats.

And that’s just how the Elitist Democrat Socialist Knaves want it.


Let’s play a Supreme Court game…

We are watching the Supreme Court Nomination Process for Neil Gorsuch, a judge many consider to be a ‘strict Constitutionalist’*, to fill the vacancy left by Justice Antonin Scalia.

The Socialist party of America and it’s army of the useful are now adopting the position that the seat was “Stolen” from them as the vacancy occurred roughly a year ago and within the Obama Presidency, Their reasoning is there was ample time to conduct a hearing and possibly swear in a Justice on President Obama’s watch. President Obama even went as far as nominating Merrick Garland, possibly the most ‘conservative’ nominee the Left has offered ever. All of this theater was promoted to the useful masses as ‘deserved’ even though Supreme Court appointments have not happened within a year of a Presidential Election in over 80-years.

While we listen to the Left howl at the injustice… think about this;

What if, after the inevitable confirmation of soon to be Justice Gorsuch, Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg buys the farm? (Literally or Figuratively… I mean, who doesn’t want a farm?)

Now suppose President Trump nominates… wait for it…

Merrick Garland?

It would be rich.

Trump would appropriately position the nomination as a compromise, even a nod… giving the Progressive Leftists want they wanted in the first place.  (If you close your eyes you can hear the choking sound…)

Now let’s go a step further and entertain another vacancy available to President Trump. Suppose another Justice retires, or buys a farm next to Ginsberg.

After such a Magnanimous gesture by President Trump to the horrid Democrat
Socialists with the nomination of ‘their guy’ Merrick Garland… he nominates another ‘strict Constitutionalist’ and demands their confirmation.

Ha!

The Art of the Deal.

A Trap for Fools, or rather The Aristocracy.

Since I’m drunk… suppose he gets another term and yet another vacancy… and does it again?

I think the Liberal Socialists would finally, collectively, Jump against Trump.

 

*’strict Constitutionalist’ is being used to identify those judges who believe the Constitution as written is the basis for our legal system.  I personally don’t understand how there can acceptably be any other kind… I’m clearly biased against pillars of judicial brilliance such as Russia, China, Venezuela, Fiji and the Philippines, etc. etc.


At some point you have to just Lay Back and enjoy it…

…well, I don’t think I’m quite ready to do that.

Donald Trump is a Fascist.

This is why he’s appealing to ignorant people from all parties. Notice I didn’t say Ideologies. And there’s the rub.

Donald Trump has no Ideology. He has no Principles. His Ethics are situational, meaning to say it depends on the situation and how it could benefit him.

This is serious stuff folks.

Either he needs to lose, or someone needs to get to him and ply him with the Founder’s Brilliance.  Stat.

Let me be clear…

Donald Trump is so bad that he has become a parody of all the ridiculous attributes the Leftist A-Holes have dreamed up to paint those of us who believe the Constitution is Correct as written.

Make no mistake, he is the demon product of the Republican Establishment. He is the spoiled milk on our cereal. He is the venereal disease of this election cycle.

The biggest problem Trump presents is his complete lack of any foundation when it comes to Governing Theory. I have more respect for Bernie Sanders as at least he admits to subscribing to Murderous, Genocidal, Dictatorial, Poisonous, Institutionally Nepotistic Socialism.

I get you’re pissed.

But put down the baseball bat and think for a moment.

Trump could very well find himself elected under the banner of ‘conservatism’ simply furthering the Left’s decades old campaign to keep the American Population confused as to what conservatism means. So successful would this be for the Progressive Liberal Elitists they would probably build monuments to his hair for the next thousand years… assuming they having starved everyone to death before then.  The Socialist sh*theads on both sides of the aisle are patient.  Get it?  If Trump wins… the Left wins… Big Government wins… and the Constitution loses… Forever.

I understand the hatred of the Established Republican Party. I feel it every waking moment of my exceptionally average life.  The RINO’s have had it their way for far too long. And because of that, and their cooperation behind closed doors with the Socialist Left of this country, and the confusion they have sown in the minds of us who genuinely care, we are where we are today.  I blame them.

But Trump is not an answer to anything save how to fill the 8p-9p time-slot when you’re out of people to vote off an island.

There is only one goal remaining for the country, and that is to return to the U.S. Constitution as written. That’s it. And Trump has openly admitted it’s not on his agenda.

If you’re voting for either Democratic Socialist… or the Fascist… you’re the problem.

And it is YOU who got us here.

If you’re not appalled that an Honest Socialist and a Dishonest Socialist can run for the Democrat Nomination to the highest elected office in the United States… let alone for Dog Catcher… you’re the problem.

If you can’t recognize that an Individual who lacks any semblance of a Moral Compass and has rearranged the letters from “Hope and Change” to read “We’ll Make America Great Again”… you’re the problem.

If you didn’t get the message from the last election cycle that WE ARE OUT OF TIME, because the U.S. Constitution had been abandoned, and by extension so have you… you’re the problem.

And if Trump wins, you better stock up on Astroglide.

I, for one, will not be laying back and enjoying it.  Instead, the only thing on my mind will be YOU… over and over and over.


Chief Justice Roberts, The Benevolent Arsonist.

Roberts has poured gas on the fire.  Intentionally.

This Obama Care ruling with Chief Justice Roberts at the center of it seems to me to be a blessing in disguise.

Let’s look at this in the simplest terms… which is the best way for me as I’m drunk most of the time.

1. The number one tactic on the Left to find legitimacy within the constitution for their schemes is removed.  The Commerce Clause has been and to this point was yet again offered up as authority for Leftists to force. Force anything they wanted… and they were hoping for a victory on Obamacare based on the “authority” of the Commerce Clause thus opening the door to making you do anything they wanted.  This use of the Commerce Clause has been emasculated.
They lost this now and for the future.  Justice Ginsburg is not happy about this…

2. Roberts opinion put’s Obama Care in the category of a tax. Nobody has yet been “harmed” by the tax as it has not kicked in yet. (It is my opinion that Roberts and many of us knew the Left, if losing the case, was going to repackage Socialized Medicine as a tax – just like Medicare – and push it that way. This would buy them another four years of legal wrangling all the while continuing to build their health care bureaucracy in the background where nobody see’s it. Yes, kind of like Iran and their nuclear program. The Socialists and the Theocrats are very similar in most ways.)

But now that it is a tax… and declared as such by all parties… the second it kicks in and “harms” somebody, the suits will start flying. Only this new challenge will have happened much faster than the Liberals would have wanted. Remember, like any good drug dealer you don’t have a solid customer until their hooked, which takes a little time, and that’s what the Liberals have openly stated.

3. Since it is a tax… it lands squarely back into the hands of Congress and our duly elected representatives who are up for election in 120 days more or less.  Hmmm…

4.  The court has reinforced the states right to not participate.  The court has reinforced the ability for the states not to proceed with the Medicaid expansion without retribution.  The Left does not like this either…  Socialism has no room for State’s rights and the 10th Amendment.

I think Roberts knew exactly what he was doing in the name limited government contrary to popular belief. But I seem to run contrary at times.

It appears to me that he has pushed this to a fight.  He has accelerated what he knew would otherwise be a long drawn out exercise to the benefit of the Socialized Medicine crowd.  He has also opened a multi-front war on this program combined with the right amount of governing philosophy required to report on it.  Who knows, may be the American people will learn something over the next few years.  May be not.

I will always stand tall to be corrected…  we’ll see.

None of you will remember what I’ve stated here in two years anyway.

Nowhere but here?

An incredibly common mistake that Americans make is to believe everyone else around the world has tried our form of government and it has failed.

The closest thing the world has seen to our Republic was Rome, and they fell because of internal decay.

While the rest of the world might profess to have tried it, they have not. Not once… ever.  World history is, however, littered with failed Monarchies, Dictatorships, Oligarchies, Socialist Utopias and myriad other attempts at the Communist Paradise.

Currently these paradigms are at a state of implosion. So desperate are they to hold on to power they have taken to blaming “Capitalism”.  Like a teenager caught in a lie, the screaming gets louder and they to find ways to blame you… or worse, call what they are doing “Capitalism” in a desperate attempt to retain their power and avoid the blame themselves.

This makes sense because who else are they going to blame?

The rest of the world, and all of our own home grown Socialists, blame Free-Markets, Individual Liberty and Freedom for the woes they are responsible for creating…

Why do we seem so sure that “The American Way” will survive?

Why do we believe that we judge each other based on the content of our character?  Is that true?  Or, have we institutionalized racism… just like the rest of the world?

Why do we think that all reasonable people see the logic in Freedom and Liberty of the Individual through a Democratically elected, Constitutionally Limited, Government when our own leaders state outwardly that the “system is broken”?  And, why do these same politicians want to change it into something “new” and not restore it to its previous brilliance, the brilliance they supposedly wish still existed?

What makes us different from the rest of the world?

No platitudes!  What exactly?

Why do we think those we have put in office, those who overtly disregard, ignore, work around, the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights, would defend the Republic?

Do you believe it is because the office we installed them into requires they swear to uphold the it?

Have their actions demonstrated they take that oath seriously?  Or does it seem they only uphold the parts they like… and then, only when they like them?

I’m serious here… Why do we think that?

What happens to these people when they violate that oath?  What happens to these people when they break the law?  Anything?

What does illegal mean?  What does it mean for you compared to those we have given a modicum of power?

Is this the America you think you live in?

Does the reality meet the expectation?

Is Socialism the answer?  Are we all to be ruled?

Or, is Individual Liberty the answer?  Are we to rule ourselves?

Pour yourself an adult Beverage and ponder these questions.

The John Roberts Dart Board

Without a doubt there is a fine Hog Bristle Dart Board bearing Chief Justice John Robert’s Face hung in the West Wing.

We discussed this a couple of years ago immediately following Robert’s deciding vote forcing the ACA to be considered a Tax if the Liberals were to move Forward! in enforcing it.

ref:  The Benevolent Arsonist

To refresh, the Democrats had tried arguing that Obama Care (Affordable Care Act) was both a tax and Constitutional under the Commerce Clause.  It was an attempt to be too clever by half.  It was crafted to put the judges in a position that the Act was Constitutional under one scenario and not the other… A Hobson’s Choice of sorts with Approval being the outcome.  Or better yet, a Trap for Fools.

The Supremes didn’t do that.  What they Did do was determined that the Commerce Clause did Not empower the Leftist’s to enforce the ACA.

So… it’s ASSUMED to be legal as a Tax… but no decision was offered regarding the Constitutionality of the ACA being a Tax.

Here we are today.

The Administration is faced with having to delay, delay, delay.

Why?

Because the moment someone is taxed under the provisions of Obama Care they have been Harmed!  Harmed!

And when you’re Harmed, you can file suit.

Once the suits are filed they will be on their way to the Supreme Court for the Decision that was not addressed previously.  Is Obama Care Constitutional as a Tax?

The Administration knows it is Not.  We know it is Not.  Everybody knows it is Not… but you’ll still hear devote Progressives Profess it is.

Thus the only tactic the Liberals have is to continue trying to delay the mandates and penalties (taxes) associated with the destruction of the finest Health Care System in the World by this Leftist Scheme known as Obama Care.

I suspect the John Roberts Dart Board is FULL of Darts… and all other sorts of sharp thingies.


Let’s stop Drunk Driving!

(This post originally aired 1 year ago today. 062513 Funny how we can’t seem to stop arguing about the same old things.)

I am not a fan of Drunk Drivers.

Their selfish behavior endangers the lives and prosperity of the rest of us. They rob us of our loved ones and suck our tax dollars away from more important priorities.  We need to put an end to this problem.  Interestingly enough, the same negative statistics can be associated with Illegal Immigration…

So, I propose we handle Drunk Driving the same way the current Administration handles Illegal Immigration.

Stop arresting people.  In fact, make it illegal to enforce the law.

Even better, Ignore the behavior all together.

And… as we have seen from the deportation statistics, the Drunk Driving problem will decrease, decline, go away.  Magic!

It’s been proven through our current policy to secure our borders, and the evaluations voiced by the Lefts’ talking heads, when you stop arresting people for committing a specific crime the number of people getting arrested for that crime goes down!  Almost unbelievably.

And in correlation, convictions also go down!  Then, the associated punishment of offenders goes down!  Brilliant!

That’s what we want according to the Left… Correct?

Clearly, If we stop pulling over and arresting Drunk Drivers then the number of people being arrested for Drunk Driving will go down!

With fewer offenders, the number of convictions would decrease!  With fewer convictions we then can conclude the behavior has demonstrably changed!  MADD will be overjoyed…

(Please Note:  We stopped teaching correlation vs. causation years ago… along with math, science, reading, etc.)

It is that easy.

Illegal Immigration Problem solved.

With the Progressive Liberals like every Democrat and Lindsey Graham having it all figured out, it leaves more time for me to drink… but not drive…

(Since McCain is basically a Democrat I lumped him in with the Progressives… I wanted to give him a break by not mentioning him directly by name.  I know he’ll appreciate that.)
