Where I Come From

15 Sep

Obviously from a Conservative/Libertarian viewpoint but that is only because of my unwavering belief that the individual is far more capable of taking care of themselves than any government ever could be. I shudder at the belief that people like Obama, Pelosi, Reid, McCain, Boehner, McConnell, etc., have our best interest at heart. They are self serving elitists who enrich themselves and their friends and every four years we shuffle the deck on empty promises by yet another empty suit, or pantsuit, and hope that things get better. It’s a joke. Neither party really gives a damn about the real struggles that face average Americans and to think otherwise is just ignorance. They just want more of our money and promise to fix what ails us all the while becoming multi millionaires with fat pensions, and too many people buy into it.

If anyone really hasn’t taken notice, this isn’t such a great planet to occupy either. On one extreme we have religious fanatics that enjoy living in the stone age, killing people that don’t buy into their fanaticism, and oppressing women. On the other extreme we have people that call the murder of an eight month old baby a choice while celebrating nearly every deviant lifestyle possible. In the middle, we have dumbed down, trained robots who wake up every day for the sole purpose of keeping the wheels of commerce greased all for the joy of buying that next iPhone at the end of the week. And leading this pack we have an oligarchy of elitists that prey upon the hopes of people for a better future to obtain positions of economic power. What’s even worse, is that if anyone ever really woke up, there is some real heartache going on – good, honest, decent people across this planet that struggle feeding themselves, struggle with diseases both physical and mental, and struggle with the day to day life of paying for the empty promises that too many of the elitist oligarchs make in order to attend the next cocktail party.

Cynical? Hell yes I am cynical. And who wouldn’t be. All you have to do is follow the news and see the results that unfold In front of your eyes everyday. So I hope this helps give everyone an idea where I come from when I post – I am sarcastic with a deep distrust of anyone in a position of authority. Just be thankful that we all don’t live forever. There’s some comfort in that notion to be sure.

    Tell me where my assessments are wrong. I would like to be wrong about this, but flippant remarks only confirm my point.

      Actually, flippant remarks confirm you’re outside the envelope into tirade territory.

    Meanwhile, the elitist in chief still pretends to care. Here’s a question from sycophant Stephonopolous from ABC and his response:

    Stephonopolous: “Do you look at that four and a half years in and say, maybe a President can’t stop this accelerating inequality?”

    Obama: No, I think a President can stop it. The problem is that there continues to be a major debate in Washington. And that is, how do we respond to the underlying trends? If you look at the data, a couple of things are creating these trends. Number one, globalization. Right? Capital, companies, they can move businesses and jobs anywhere they want. And so they’re looking for the lowest wages. That squeezes workers here in the United States even if corporations are profitable. Technology. If you go to a lot of companies now, they’ve have eliminated entire occupations because they’re now robotized. We don’t have travel agents, we don’t have bank tellers.

    Companies are not looking for the lowest wages moron. They are looking for the right blend of low taxes, educated work force, and distribution and transportation means, among other things. And we still have bank tellers, Mr. Obama. You might want to actually pay attention to what average Americans actually do from time to time.

      Boy Cluster, you really are a piece of work. But i think you’re really going to enjoy my next post. I just hope you don’t think it feeds your terribly simplistic tirade.

      One more question: Obama is an elitist? If that’s true, who isn’t? And how do you tell?

        Having trouble identifying an elitist? Of course you are one that ignores a lot of things that go on under your nose, so allow me to explain. How about someone who has never even worked a year in the private sector yet is a multi millionaire? How about someone who has campaigned and won twice on the platform of expanding employment and the middle class, has accomplished neither and still vacations at Martha’s Vineyard? How about someone who claims climate change is one our biggest threats and flies his dog alone on a jumbo jet to their vacation spot?

        Have you ever connected those dots? And I might actually say that you could be one of them. How’s that for a flippant remark?

        I will also say that your high minded pontifications crack me up. You are a solid member of the “creative class” as one liberal put it the other day in reference to two democrats being tossed out of office in CO following their intolerance of the 2nd amendment.

        In that case I’m sure you would have thought the Constitutional Convention was pure comedy gold!

    Cluster: “Just be thankful that we all don’t live forever. There’s some comfort in that notion to be sure.”

    Good grief, Cluster. Bad week at the office? I guess I’ll take rico’s high minded pontifications over your cynical rantings if only because it must suck to be so negative all the time.

    I guess you think American companies moving jobs and production and manufacturing offshore has nothing to do with lower costs, i.e., lower wages.

    How about someone who has never even worked a year in the private sector yet is a multi millionaire.

    Presumably you are referring to President Obama. You understand that most of his wealth has come from the sales of the books he wrote, right? Do you begrudge “creative” types for creating something that other people want to consume?

    Then you bring out the old, tired conservative cliches about President Obama’s vacations and the canard that cuddly little Bo flies in his own private jet. Pretty soon you’ll be ranting about golf. Sheesh. Go watch some football. Oh, wait. Your team sucks, too. 🙂

      I’m sorry Watson, I should just go watch football. I didn’t mean to say anything bad about Obama. I sure don’t want to be considered “anti black”. I just need to learn my place in the proletariat. Won’t happen again.

        No, you said something bad about authors! As if their line of work isn’t worthy of fortune. I detect jealousy on your part.

        “I didn’t mention one thing about authors Watson. Calm down.”

        Not directly, but we know what you meant. Writing isn’t real work. Maybe you could explain to us what is real work and what isn’t. By the way, since you seem to have nothing better to do on a Sunday afternoon, could you do some research on this Bo-flies-in-his-own-jet story and get back to us with the facts? Thanks.

        I am not going to do your homework for you Watson and I love how you refer again to that magic liberal crystal ball – “we all knew what you meant”.

        Tell me – what did Obama mean when he wrote “white mans greed runs a world in need” in his stupid little book? Break out that crystal ball again.

        I am not going to do your homework for you Watson…

        Yes, better to dodge the question than to acknowledge that you just make stuff up. I’d probably be tempted to do the same if I were in your shoes. But for the benefit of others:

        http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/bo.asp

        Tell me – what did Obama mean when he wrote “white mans greed runs a world in need” in his stupid little book? Break out that crystal ball again.

        Well, first, Obama was recounting a sermon by Jeremiah Wright. Do you understand the difference between writing your own thoughts versus recounting what someone else said? You really need to stop listening to Shawn Hannity. He’s an idiot who doesn’t understand the difference.

        And second, here’s a bit more of the quote (again, this is Obama paraphrasing what Rev. Wright said):

        “It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where white folks’ greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere…That’s the world! On which hope sits!”

        I think there’s a linkage between the first statement and the second, but I don’t have the book here in front of me to give you more context.

        Are you at all familiar with Haiti? Since you seem to be full of cynicism and despair these days, I have a couple of suggestions for you. First, you might check out the book Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World.

        Second, consider volunteering for six months in Haiti. There are many relief organizations that would welcome your help. You clearly need a drastic change of scenery to shake you our of your misery and I feel this could be just the ticket. I know others who have done this and have come back richly rewarded. I’m not being flippant. You should consider it.

        Well pardon me for not taking your advice. I have too many people here that depend on my day to day maintenance. Although knowing the problems in Haiti and liberals bleeding hearts, maybe you should suggest to your Congressman that they devise a new tax. Or maybe just have Obama give a speech. His speeches always seem to do wonders.

        From the Telegraph, you know those foreign news sources that have no bias.

        And I hardly think quoting Jeremiah Wright makes it any better. But nice try.

        Cluster, Bo flying separately from the first family is not the same as Bo flying “alone on a jumbo jet.”

        As for the Jeremiah Wright quote, you said, “what did Obama mean when he wrote “white mans greed runs a world in need” in his stupid little book.” Either you assumed it was Obama expressing his own thoughts, or you knew he wasn’t and didn’t care. Either way, pretty disingenuous if you ask me.

        There’s really no talking to you today, is there? I know you’re a better guy than this. Maybe you’ll be in a better mood tomorrow. Until then, I’m out.

        No doubt I am in a shitty mood today but you’d have to have a frontal lobotomy to stay happy in this current society. Either that or a “bottle in front of me”, and I have been there, done that.
