The Old media, the old political party, and the old hippies are all a dying breed. June 1, 2004
Democrats of all stripes have outlived their usefulness. Assuming that they actually had any usefulness to America in the first place. Remember, this is the party that didnt want Lincoln to go to war, and were ready to cede the South from the Union (and therefore to slavery), being that most southerners were Democrats anyway. The term for the anti-war Democrats, especially in the North, was Copperheads, and I think we aught to resurrect that term today. These Peace Democrats were opposed to the war and were intent on accepting a negotiated peace with the South resulting in an independent Confederate States of America. Of course, they would have also been accepting the Confederates Constitutionality of slavery without putting up a fight, but when has the humanity of any other human on Earth ever been the actual concern of a Democrat?
Their entire leadership is cranky, undereducated, self-centered, drunk, botoxed, and out-of-touch with the modern 21st Century world. (Sidebar: speaking of out-of-touch, have you seen the cover picture of Hillary on her book, and the recent portrait painting of her? Sheeesh, talk about out of touch. /End Sidebar.) Democrats have recently become like the old man in his tattered robe and torn slippers standing on the porch shaking a newspaper at the kids to get off his lawn. Their youngest leader is a junior senator, The HildeBeast, now pushing 60.
The rat party has no new ideas, no motivation, no creativity, no solutions. These old jackasses offer nothing but socialism by the shovel full. There simply isn't any new blood coming into the rat party to pick up the hammer and sickle.
Their hippie followers are no better. They cannot cope with the new 21st century - the rules of war, fast economics, strong independence, and high-speed information from the Internet, but most of their brains are too fried to understand anyway. They babble on, at tired rallies, using trite chants, holding up signs scrawled on by a 4 year old, while drooling on their tie-dyed shirts, dreaming about the 60's when they could engage in free sex, commune arrangements, socialism, and riots. Time, and the invention of the taser, has fairly well taken care of their desire to riot. Now they are fat, stupid, old, lazy, bitchy and miserable. Oh, and repulsive, especially to the younger generation.
The Old Media is taking some hard hits, too. Their slanted brainwashing tactics are not working so well anymore with the New Media in place and entrenched permanently in our lives and in their former domain. Even the queen of the morning, Katie Couric, is getting awfully cranky with her beloved party out of power for the foreseeable future and her enemy guests armed with solid up the minute facts. Have you seen her lately? The crows feet around her mouth now match the other end of her digestive tract, which we got to see on live TV a few years ago in a clinic. The New Media, comprised mainly of AM radio and the Internet, contains a whos who list of all the enemies of the Old Media propaganda machine. Using real-time interactive discussion, volunteer on-the-scene eyewitness journalists, amateur photographers with the ability to post photos and movie clips, up to the minute reporting, and instant fact checking, the New Media is whats HOT. Newspapers and TV are so last-millennium.
ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBC are losing market share. Slowly yes, but still losing. And their last hero candidate, Al Gore, who even managed to lose his own home state of Tennessee in 2000, goes on a maniacal, socialist, nutball rant last month (another Sidebar: question for you rats what have the Democrats of Tennessee learned about Al Gore since they elected him Senator that the rest of you Democrats are too stupid to understand? /End Sidebar). The Democrats last president is an impeached, dis-barred, lying, perjuring, cheating, lazy, cowardly sexual predator - and the feminazis dont even blink. University graduation classes are energetically booing and heckling the guest speakers who have bashed Bush. The rat's campaign contributions are down to a trickle. Mike Wallace desperately grasps for an opportunity at the dedication of the WWII memorial to bash Bush and winds up being heckled and booed and making a lot of new enemies and later having to defend his actions. NY Times and other papers across the country are losing sales at a faster pace, and their editorial boards are being so strongly tormented on the Internet with facts and biting counter opinion that they have to coerce judges and force non-profit Internet sites to intervene to stop all this uncontrolled political discourse. Fair Use be damned, as any good socialist would shout.
These stories of the liberals last desperate dying gasps of air as their ship sinks should be heralded as great news. They have lasted long enough. Its time to put them in a nursing home. The major democrat strongholds, all three of them, are finished.
They just dont understand why they are losing so badly on every front. Both of their flagship attempts at using the New Media have been stinking up the joint. Air America on radio, and Salon.com on the Internet are dying, and both are taking party money down with them. BTW, You dont hear the Democrats talking about that wonderful Information SuperHighway anymore like they did in the mid 90s do you?
All that is "left" of them are old, tired blood and radical socialists. They are stuck in the last Millennium, the 60s to be specific. They have aborted over 30 million of their own children who could have picked up the slack. They have driven down all their constituents by telling them that they couldnt make it without Democrat protection, those constituent groups who could have been successful otherwise and would have been here now to pick up their hammers and sickles.
It is an interesting kismet how the conversion to FM radio format in the late 60's killed AM radio as a music format over a 10-15 year period. Its availability then happened to be a perfect format for the most popular talk show host of all time, Rush Limbaugh. And it's also deliciously satisfying that the Internet was created by the rabid socialist Al Gore. He created his own Frankenstein.
If the last 12 years of their demise is any indicator, my guess is that the rat party will collapse in on itself in the next 20 years and become a white dwarf. To fill the void, the Republican Party will split into a fiscal conservative party and a social conservative party.
Like watching an obvious movie where you can already predict the ending, this will be an enjoyable few years, as the rats try to figure out how to stop from going down the tube while stuck in a spiral, swirling in the bowl.
Old hippies is right on! Liberals are mainly old hippies who had their intellectual development arrested when they started doing their trippy drugs.
good 1 !
Didn't Gore promise during the 2000 campaign that he'd have every school in America hooked up to the Internet? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
bump to enjoy later!
Here's a link to one of the better known hippies and what she thinks she looks like:
that was a GREAT READ!
Well done! BRAVO
thanks! I was getting tired of some of the complaining by conservatives that we don't seem to be winning.
FR used to have great vanities,all of the time.Unfortunately,about 99% of the vanities now posted to FR are utter garbage.You wrote a well thought out,well written one,and deserve high praise.
"that was a GREAT READ!"
LOL,yes, yes it was. A fine HAPPY rant, that's something you don't get every day.
And to the hard left may your followups be posted in oblivion.
"FR used to have great vanities,all of the time.Unfortunately,about 99% of the vanities now posted to FR are utter garbage.You wrote a well thought out,well written one,and deserve high praise."
Ain't that the truth. It was fun reading some of the better amatuer rants, you get more of a sense of the author's thoughts than in an article that's been edited to death.
I wish that people who can't write above the third grade and really have NOTHING of value/substance to say,would stop wasting bandwidth.OTOH,whenever you write another,please ping me.You deserve being read!
ping to fellow survivors.
Wow, you have been here on FR for awhile!
Welcome to FR, hope you stick around through the election.
Been some interesting (read: flaming) disussion about that. We have neocons, paleocons, mesocons (saw that one the other day), and I tossed in Retrocon (somone described that as a Goldwater Republican) and ConoCon (conservative but in jail and wants to reform the prison system even more).
Thanks...I've enjoyed your writing and don't want to miss your next one/s.
Thanks, hope to be here at least that long.
Hey if you have a link on that subject, please send it to me.
I was just thinking about what would happen in the absence of the rat party, and with the small rift in the Repub party about RINOs, I thought that the Repubs would split.
Their entire leadership is cranky, undereducated, self-centered, drunk, botoxed, and out-of-touch with the modern 21st Century world...
Democrats have recently become like the old man in his tattered robe and torn slippers standing on the porch shaking a newspaper at the kids to get off his lawn.
Bravo. Outstanding! Get yourself onto FoxNews, Rush, Hannity, now. I mean right now. This is priceless stuff.
Let me be the first to tell you...
You're walking around with toilet paper stuck to the bottom of your shoe.
Submit it to the NYT, the only bad thing is that you or I can't physically be there to see the steam coming out of a NYT editors ears as they read it.
So,let me be the first to tell you...
YOU just wasted bandwidth and made yourself look like a fool,to boot.;^)
Ping list for the discussion of the politics and social aspects that directly effects Generation-X (Those born from 1965-1981) including all the spending previous generations (i.e. The Baby Boomers) are doing that Gen-X and Y will end up paying for.
Freep mail me to be added or dropped. See my home page for details.
thanks very much.
"Submit it to the NYT.."
What! So some pet birds and puppies can read it?!

Well, look at it this way, at least some beings more intelligent than the NYT editors may have the chance to read it.
Its current form was born in the hothouse of the 1960's anti-courage (excuse me, anti-WAR) movement, which hardcore socialists and their Soviet masters latched on to and mutated into what we see today. That "coward" (Darn, PEACE) movement was really all about young Americans, used to their easy lives of fun and frolic, not wishing to interrupt same to serve their country, as others had done before them. This reluctance was fed by the Soviet-backed socialists here with long lists of excuses and propaganda.
The result was the coalescing of a solidly Leftist, socialist Democratic party bearing little resemblance to that which had existed only a few decades before.
Sadly, we have had to put up with it and its effects now for far too long, and will probably have to for another few decades at least.
It's official...what we all called mainstream media is now OLD MEDIA. Spread it, use it. It will kill 'em off faster.
thanks for the vote of confidence. At least I have a face for radio.
"This reluctance was fed by the Soviet-backed socialists here with long lists of excuses and propaganda."
Very interesting swerve there. The demise of the Democrats begins right after the demise of the Soviet Union. The USSR was likely providing the money for the Rat party, and with that dried up by 1991-92, Clinton was forced to go to China for money in the 90's.
If Bush-41 had tried to win the election in '92, the rats might be near oblivion right now, and terrorism would have been attacked starting in 1993 after the first WTC attack in early 93.
I remember a Gore campaign strategist saying something like "they [TN votes] left Algor, Algor did not leave them".
Hello? Anybody home? The Dims are too busy appealing to every two-bit faction, and alienating a strategic part of the base.
What an outstanding piece.
What! So some pet birds and puppies refuse to use it?!
Excellent. Should be required reading in Am Lit Courses at all Colleges. So Novel.
Once the grafting of Left+Democrats was complete, as it was in 1972 or so, the Soviets could just sit back and watch as the various Democrat machines and unions continued to support "their" party. Why run the risk of exposure?
Useful idiots like Kerry, Clinton, and others had already been "planted".
One day, this anomaly will end. Or, it will if the damage to our education system has not gotten too deep. Sometimes, I'm not so sure. Leftist programs now support a wide range of Americans with tax dollars, which those so supported will ever vote to defend.
Prior to 1965, a candidate like Kerry wouldn't have gotten two votes to rub together. Ten years later, he was a successful politician. Clinton was a smooth-talking womanizer and draft-dodger in 1970. In 1980, he was attorney general of Arkansas, and on his way to the governor's office and thence to the White House.
The wild times of the late '60s enabled that radical shift in American politics.
We always had a Left. However, they were considered nothing more than fringe at best. The '60s, with a little help, created the illusion that they were mainstream, and gave their ideas credibility that they did not deserve.
