Fresh From Rehab

After a few weeks of rehab and a little shock therapy, I believe I have emerged somewhat whole from the juvenile depravity that infected this blog for a while. The posts are now virus free so now is the time to recalibrate and establish a new foundation from which to launch the counter punches to the incessant progressive attack machine, and to expose their ideology as the vapid, baseless failure that it is proving to be. And where does this initial inspiration come from? Bill Maher of all people:

“That is not the only trick Republicans have up their sleeve. Even more than cheating, what Republicans have done is tap into the deep, rich vein of cultural resentment that runs through America’s heartland like an artery clogged with hate butter. And liberals, to be fair, sometimes make it pretty easy for them to do that.

When Gwyneth Paltrow said her divorce was a ‘conscious uncoupling’, even I wanted to jump in a truck, crank up the Lynyrd Skynyrd and shoot up a farmers’ market.

And as a comedian, I don’t like it when political correctness Nazis hound me to censor every joke, apologize for every slight, and when I have to learn how to pronounce words like ‘chi’ and ‘quinoa’, I just want to shove a head of kale up their ass. They mean well, but sometimes when I’m at Whole Foods, I don’t want to sign petitions and give to charity. I just want to go in and get a $15 lentil sandwich that’ll make me fart for a week.

I also, for example, think it’s ridiculous that Facebook has now decided we have to choose in our profile from 56 different genders, including transgender, cisgender and, of course, Bruce Gender.

You know that I almost ate at Chick-Fil-A just because so many people were telling me I shouldn’t eat at Chick-Fil-A. But then I remembered, it’s Chick-Fil-A.

But even atheists make me roll my eyes sometimes, like when they sue to have a cross taken down from a building. Oh for f*** sake, we’re atheists, not vampires. (Best line of the rant). If you can’t handle seeing a cross now and then, you picked the wrong country.

So I get it, liberals can get obnoxious and that’s why lots of Americans say we don’t want politicians nagging about what we can name our football team or how big our soda can be or what we can eat or who we’ve offended. We have wives for that! But don’t cut off your nose to spite your face. One of the Republicans’ strongest voting blocs is low-income whites who didn’t go to college (… and pursue degrees in art history). These are people who desperately need a minimum wage hike, need unions, they need health care — but not if it’s got Obama’s name on it. (Recall how Republicans rolled over when health reform had the Clintons’ name on it).

Remember, for every liberal with a cause who makes you go, oh just shoot me, there’s a conservative with a gun who will.”

I don’t often agree with Bill Maher, but he mostly gets it right with this commentary on the insufferable, self righteous progressive that currently infects our society. The problem is, the more desperate they become the more annoying they are, and there will be a lot of desperation on their part between now and November.

The New Phase of Ideological Agitation

Charles Krauthammer has always been one of my favorite political commentators and his most recent article defines the current Democratic party and their followers better than anyone ever could. So without any additional commentary, I will simply post a few choice excerpts from Krauthammer:

“……. the left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation — no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition.”

“Like the CEO of Mozilla who resigned under pressure just 10 days into his job when it was disclosed that six years earlier he had donated to California’s Proposition 8, which defined marriage as between a man and a woman. But why stop with Brendan Eich, the victim of this high-tech lynching? Prop 8 passed by half a million votes. Six million Californians joined Eich in the crime of “privileging” traditional marriage. So did Barack Obama. In that same year, he declared that his Christian beliefs made him oppose gay marriage.”

“To this magic circle of forced conformity, the left would like to add certain other policies, resistance to which is deemed a “war on women.” It’s a colorful synonym for sexism. Leveling the charge is a crude way to cut off debate.”

“Closed to debate. Open only to intimidated acquiescence.”

Open Thread

I would like to hear from the many followers that have chosen to follow this blog, which would be a refreshing departure from the handful of previous commentators that dominated this blog. Feel free to comment on any subject matter that interests you if you are inclined to do so. Your anonymity is assured. A couple of things that have crossed my mind lately:

– Is it time for Knife Control legislation?

– Is the House Ways and Means Committee within their right to hold Lerner in contempt?

– Is the gender wage gap a legitimate issue? Or just more election year demagoguery on behalf of Democrats?

Blog Policy

I want to begin by apologizing to the followers of our blog and the adults in the room regarding the content of the blog over the last several weeks, which I have found to be distasteful, juvenile and worse yet, uninteresting. We began this blog with the goal of facilitating some level of civil, rational, and objective political discourse, which in my opinion, would be a welcome departure from the juvenile rancor found on so many other sites, and my hope would be that that type of forum would result in a lot of commentators and opinions. Well that goal has obviously not been met, and what you are treated to on a nearly daily basis instead is a depository of hatred and personal mischaracterizations from people with self-superiority issues. Essentially, whatever representation of conservatism or libertarianism real or perceived of which they disagree with, is marginalized and ridiculed, and that does not result in a very interesting forum, nor one that too many people would want to engage in. Mitch and I are about as far apart politically as two people could possibly be, but I welcome his friendship, input and contributions to the site, and I think that that collaboration between us proves that political disagreement does not have to be entirely disagreeable.

So from this point forward, any personal or ad hominem attacks on other blogs, private citizens, politicians, or other commentators, will be deleted and continued violations will result in a permanent ban of the offender. Policy disagreements are welcome here, but those disagreements must be in a forum in which people are allowed to speak their mind absent the threat of being bullied or attacked. If you disagree with a comment, simply state that you do and why – it’s a simple as that, and those who can’t conform to that standard will not be welcome. Period. I originated the blog, so I will set the policy and I have been amiss at doing so. If that goal can not be realized, then this blog may cease to exist altogether, and those of you who relish in juvenile, play ground political discourse can start your own blog or join other forums. I hope I am clear on this.

7,100,000.00

Obama-Neo   Enough said. Let’s see how the right explains why they want to deny health insurance to everyone.  Oh, I know. The numbers are false because “they” (whomever “they” are) cooked the books!  I hope they used a bit of garlic and vermouth.
