Fresh From Rehab

27 Apr

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.

      “old” progressive content is the right description. And please, take your “old” and tired progressive commentary over there.

      Much appreciated.

    Not with people like these who are identified as conservatives.

      Well many say that Andrew Sullivan is a conservative, so labeling someone as conservative doesn’t make it right.

      Besides, I would think the terrorists would prefer water boarding then to being killed with a drone strike.

    Sullivan is a conservative. I’m talking about people like Palin who has been excoriated by even publications from the extreme right as being disgusting. But it’s not just her. It that Bundy guy and the racist comments and the 20 count indictment Rep congressman from NY and the cocaine use by the Rep congressman from Fl or the guy from Louisiana who was filmed making out with a staffer. This is now the impression the public is getting of the right. Not to mention that AHC is very popular and a big success. All of the major issues of the day, immigration, minimum wage marital equality the public favors in the ~ 70% range. The right is against it. In Louisiana, the state is paying millions of dollars to deny health care to their citizens.

      Bundy is a senile old man, and Donald Sterling was to receive an NAACP award, and is a contributor to the Democratic Party – should I label all Democrats to be like Donald Sterling? White, rich and racist? The ACA is not popular – Real Clear Politics average is 52% against, 41% for, and it’s not a big success either. No one can answer these basic questions; how many people have paid; how many are subsidized; and what the age demographics are. Those very important questions that no one can answer. Besides the Oregon state run exchange just closed having enrolled NO ONE, and is now deferring to the federal government despite having spent hundreds of millions of dollars of their tax payers money – epic failure!!

      Keep an eye on Connecticut – they recently raised their minimum wage to $10.10/hr, which according to Obama means there will be no more poor people in that state. I will bet you right now, it doesn’t move the needle one bit. And this just in – Toyota is leaving CA for TX

      More employers leaving progressive strongholds. You will see a lot more that.

    I haven’t been in rehab, in shock therapy, or anything like that, I’ve just been gone for a while. And here I come back to find Cluster, of all people, accusing this blog of “juvenile depravity”. What’s up with that?

      I mean I get the basic Kaufmanesque quality of it all, Cluster, but there’s something important missing in your posturings…
