Such as it is that most leftists do not realize that the freedoms they have so vocally and stridently advocated for so long the social freedom to say and do whatever you want, and the economic freedom to avoid meaningful employment are about to be obliterated.
Its no more complicated that that.
Only thing remaining to be seen now is how they'll react when the bones are clean.
The Left is like a bunch of spoiled children always demanding more. Their would be utopia is going to turn into a calamitous national economic nightmare.

They want to destroy it, then they can build it back up in their image.
You forgot... “Are outraged that half the people are below the median income.”

If history is any teacher, they will start on themselves
after consuming all the rest of us first.
yes and when the ship starts sinking there will be a lot of people headed for the lifeboats, but they won’t be there.
Good. Destroy it all. Let them reap what they sow.
We have guns, they don’t.
I a sick of providing for the leeches, time to both “go galt” and also become a “super leech” by taking as much as you can from the government as quick as you can and start squirreling it away so that you hasten the collapse as well have provisions left after the collapse to reuild, if we wait too long we play into their hands because that will give them time to dismantle the 2nd ammendment before the inevitable collapse.
Well if that comes to pass there will be at least a few that don't make it to that last phase.
Start by signing up everyone in the phonebook for EBT and SNAP
I’m with you there.
Never let the left get into your mainstream. It’s always a disaster.
If history is any teacher,they will start on themselves after consuming all the rest of us first.
This is why we need to start camoflaging ourselves to look like them, then when it comes time to point fingers we can help point them at thee most maxist jackwagons first.
You know they don’t care. Just look at the ghettos. Decades after “The Great Society” and the neighborhoods and schools are total crap. No one wants to live there, especially white liberals who head for the conservative neighborhoods lickety-split.
Don’t forget SCHIP!
It dawned on me today, while reading some of the remarks about a story regarding San Bernadino’s bankruptcy, that liberals honestly believe the crap that they spew. They aren’t trying to hide anything, they are honestly that f*&^king stupid. The story I was reading related to the amount that San Bernadino owed CALPERS in back payments for their pension coverage. They quit paying it when they declared bankruptcy (none of the other municipalities that declared bankruptcy did - they all kept paying CALPERS for their pensions). They owe CALPERS somewhere between $139m and $318m. The union leeches are planning on stealing from other union leeches, as they fully expect CALPERS to continue to pay their retiree pensions. Bond investors are suing to get in front of CALPERS in the creditor line, and the citizens are mad at the investors for “trying to steal from CALPERS” by attempting to gain redemption value on their bond investments before the pension plan gets its contributions. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
How in heaven’s name, in that mess, can the only demon you find be the investors who loaned them the money to carry on with their profligate spending over the past 20 years? I nearly threw up in my mouth!
Regardless, these liberals honesty think that there is a rainbow somewhere on the horizon and that more socialism can fix all of the woes. I don’t get it, how can people be so oblivious to simple arithmetic and common sense.
You forgot to quote the article :-)
So here it is:
Such as it is that most leftists do not realize that the freedoms they have so vocally and stridently advocated for so long the social freedom to say and do whatever you want, and the economic freedom to avoid meaningful employment are about to be obliterated. The useful idiots will be astounded to find themselves in a full-fledged police state and bound in a state of serfdom to the demands of the central government.
Comply or starve. Submit or face elimination, will be the governments refrain. The masochistic, subhuman degenerates will be all too glad to grovel to their Democrat Party masters.
When all is said and done, what will the leftists have rebelled against? A nation where forty hours (1/4 of the week) of the worst employment provides a standard of living higher than that of 95% of the worlds population? Where twenty minutes spent mindlessly slinging burgers and fries at McDonalds can buy you enough calories to last the day? Where one of the ubiquitous public policy crises is not starvation, but obesity?
This is a country where we are being economically oppressed?
Where 80 percent of poor households have air conditioning?
Where 92 percent of poor households have a microwave?
Where nearly three-fourths of poor households have a car or truck?
Where 31 percent of the poor have two or more cars or trucks?
Where nearly two-thirds of the poor have cable or satellite TV?
Where near two-thirds of the poor have at least one DVD player, and 70 percent have a VCR?
Where half of the poor have a personal computer, and one in seven have two or more computers?
Where more than half of poor families with children have a video game system, such as an Xbox or PlayStation?
Where more than 43 percent of the poor have Internet access?
Where one-third of the poor have a wide-screen plasma or LCD TV?
This is an economic system that needs to be fundamentally transformed? This is a country we are supposed to be so damned mad about?
And why? Because there is inequality? Of course, there is inequality, you fools! If I sit here and blog instead of sacking coal in a mine, then do I deserve to be paid as much as a coal miner? No! If I lay on my couch eating bon-bons and watching Judge Judy should I make as much money as the grease monkey who just expertly fixed a broken-down Volvo? Again, no!
So why in tarnation is everyone up in arms about Mitt Romneys gifts comment? Why do people lose their collectivist minds when Romney talks about the 47% of takers, whom he accurately predicted would never vote for him? His comments hit a little too close to home, thats why, they touched a nerve of truth, and they outraged those who feel entitled to the fruits of other peoples labor. Good!
But Mitt Romney was wrong when he said that too many Americans were taking gifts from President Obama and thats why he lost the election. When someone gives a gift, generally, he has to make it or pay for it. The president did neither; he just looted the private sector and redistributed Obama money to his voter-clients, who excused his theft with a shoulder shrug and the amoral rejoinder well, thats democracy.
So what about Americas imperialist foreign policy, you say?
Like when the U.S. entered World War I to defeat the initiators of the war in Europe?
Or when GIs were plunged into WWII by Japan, whom we roundly defeated and rebuilt even stronger than before?
Or when we helped defeat the Nazis and saved much of Europe from Nazi and Soviet domination?
Or how about fighting for South Korea, which is a virtual paradise compared to its communist neighbor to the North?
Or maybe Vietnam, which saw tens of thousands of people killed or made refugees when the North Vietnamese finally conquered the South?
How about the Cold War, which saw the vilified Ronald Reagan proven correct about the moral and economic rot of the USSR once and for all?
Or what about Saddam Hussein, a genocidal madman who personally oversaw rape and torture rooms, and who used wmds on his own people?
And what of the Taliban, whose sick medieval atrocities defy polite description?
American foreign policy may be misguided at times, but it is far from imperialistic. The U.S. doesnt enslave nations it fights for or against, it liberates peoples and does its best to protect and improve their lives. That doesnt make the U.S., or any nation, perfect.
Of course, opposing the evils of communism and fascism, as well as the economic misery of socialism, makes Americans belligerent warmongers out to conquer the world, correct? Good little Leninists take note that the warmongers in each case cited above were not liberal democratic nations. And for further counterfactuals to the lefts insipid imperialism narrative, just ask the Canadians and Mexicans how unashamedly expansionist we are.
The lefts hunger for a perfect world can never be sated. That is why the shining beacon of liberty that has been the United States is derided as culturally imperialist or hegemonic because freedom frustrates utopian totalitarians. There always has to be more demands. Theres never enough to quell their envy and dissatisfaction with life.
But there wont be anarchy and chaos if capitalism is crushed, says the unblinking leftist; you see, for some magical reason a spontaneous new order will arise and we will all be new human beings and we will all love each other equally and there will be peace forever and ever. Amen.
There will be peace the peace that comes from the desolation of all that gets in the way of the lefts diabolical machine. The peace that comes from the absence of resistance to socialism. The peace that comes from assimilation to the Borg. And following that peace will come stagnation, societal and economic decay, alienation, apathy, and a ruling class entrenched above the whole tragic, despicable mess of it all.
But this is the lefts paradise, removed from the sappy, sanguine figments of their overactive imaginations. This is the brave new world of Barack Obama and his ilk. This is the eerie transformation of America that the Democrats were talking about.
The signs of collapsing societies throughout history were everywhere for everyone to see. Yet paradoxically, people were always baffled when their misery and destruction came upon them like a thief in the night.
The lazy, the ignorant, and the ideologically corrupt, naively believing empty slogans like Land, Bread, and Peace, wake up one day to find themselves deprived of all property, starving, or in a constant state of war with other nations, against their own government, amongst each other, or even versus nature itself.
Soak up the misery, lefties. But never say we didnt warn you.
Now, that is honestly funny :-)
1)Only in America, could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 a plate campaign fund-raising event.
2) Only in America, could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General, and roughly 18% of the federal workforce is black while only 12% of the population is black.
3) Only in America, could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner, the head of the Treasury Department and Charles Rangel who once ran the Ways and Means Committee, BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.
4) Only in America, can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.
5) Only in America, would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege while we discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just magically become American citizens.
6) Only in America, could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the countrys Constitution be thought of asextremists.
7) Only in America, could you need to present a drivers license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.
8) Only in America, could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. oil company (Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).
9) Only in America, could the government collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it has per year for total spending of $7-Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesnt have nearly enough money.
10) Only in America, could the rich people who pay 86% of all income taxes be accused of not paying their fair share by people who dont pay any income taxes at all.
Liberals are the perfect example of how you can kill two biblical commandments with one stone.....thou shall not covet and thou shall not steal.

I take it you didn't get that memo?
They are about to discover an historical truism. Like all the "utopia" builders before them, they make the same mistake, that of using the blood and bones of those who disagree with their vision as a foundation. This does not work, never has worked, nor never will work. That kind of "foundation" is far too unstable to produce a stable society...
we are in a containment mode. execute the escape from new york plan. barricade in all the damn takers and let them thunderdome each other to death. only difference is if any try to leave they’re dead.
Rush used to refer to the U.S. as an “emaciated sow” with dozens of little piglets nursing at her teats.
Dems wish for Universal tricle up poverty.
Add 15. You want them to have bicycle helmets but give them pot.
Just to "make it fair", don'tchaknow.
Unfortunately there seems to be an aspect of human nature, that would rather be worse off, knowing everyone else is worse off, than to be better off, but with everyone else even more better off than they are. That in part, explains the appeal of Communism.
One has to start out with a pretty twisted view of life and civilization to be attracted to such a malignant concept as Communism. It also helps if one has a room temperature I.Q.
Joe [Liberal] Sixpack is never going to have a thought, other than "somebody else should pay". Moreover, Joe is going to be voting democrat to his dying day - and for some years thereafter.
If things don’t change, I see this country going the way as it did in the movie Idiocracy.

Agree, its not a workable model by any stretch. As Margaret Thatcher so famously said: “the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”
Protect yourself financially as best you can. Its going to be a rough and dangerous ride.
