Skip to comments.I Finally Understand Democrats
Posted on 01/23/2012 7:43:13 PM PST by neverdem
After years of puzzlement and curiosity observing modern day Democrats, I think I have finally figured them out.
I'm constantly amazed that modern Democrats have evolved beyond living in caves. I mean what other animal on this planet can disregard all common sense and logic and survive? Scientists have recently discovered that even giant sea slugs that do not possess a brain as such can learn from past experiences. That puts them a leg up over the current crop of liberals in this country. I used to subscribe to the adage that liberalism was a mental disorder, but even Rainman would have a hard time buying into the standard mantra of the present day Democratic Party. In order to believe that Democrats have the answer today, you would have to believe:
That you can grow the entitlement class beyond the taxpayer class and never hit critical mass where there is no money left.
That using the military to oust a murderous thug dictator in 2003 was criminal, and using the military to oust a murderous thug dictator in 2011 was noble.
That the best way to grow the wealth of the private sector is to take all the money out of it.
That the best way to make us energy independent is to block any effort to produce more petrocarbons in this country.
That the best way to create jobs is to increase taxes and regulations on the job creators.
That the best way to stop arms from this country from getting into the hands of the drug cartels in Mexico is to provide arms to the drug cartels in Mexico.
That all the ills of the economy are due to the fat cat banks and other corporations, and the best way to deal with that is to provide billions...

It frustrates him to no end when we discuss politics. He assumes that I can’t possibly withstand the force of his intellect, but I have over twenty years of training by the likes of Rush etc. He seldom challenges the old man anymore, and hopefully someday he’ll do an about face and come back into the light. Who knows? Regardless, he’s a good kid, just young and misguided. I tease him with the moniker “Crusader.”
Have him read “The Road to Serfdom” by Hayek.
or “Vision of the Annointed: Self-congratulation as a basis for social policy” by Sowell.
*LOVE* that title!
they can do nothing...they play at banking, play at trading..play at warrioring..play at building cars...play at doctoring...play at building and running trains...play at supplying energy....
I think the 2011 war he was referring to was the six-month bombing campaign we engaged in to overthrow Khadaffi, who didn’t attack us any more than Saddam Hussein.
Like Marie Antoinette playing at being a peasant... and the rest we all know.
Oh no! You mean to tell me liberals aren’t smart?
O baaaaaaa ma? It was all a ruse? Next thing you know, you’ll be telling me the smart Rinos put the stupid in the Stupid Party!
There is such a thing as evil genius. Liberals study history. They know the long history of blood shed, oppression and poverty brought about by the Leftist ideology they embrace. They know eugenics is genocide. They are blood thirsty “smart” people. They want to be the empowered killers. If you visit their web sites, you will see, they don’t hesitate to darkly warn of the need to kill a lot of refusniks in the New Age.
If we are cut off from outside sources, we can use our ingenuity to develop a new one, But windmills and solar panels are not the answer, nor is ethanol. The last is like the wood-burning cars that the Germans used after their oil sources were cut off. And speaking of cars, as if electric cars can exist without a fossil fuel using power system/atomic power. We dont have a spare ten years to let the electric car developers make up for 90 years of lack of development.
One of the comments was “The Democrats are the party of poverty”.
And I’d guess many Democrats would agree with that.
The thing is, a party that acquires its power from poverty isn’t going to commit suicide by championing wealth for the masses... The more poverty the party creates the larger its voter base and the more power it acquires.
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly.
I hope you aren’t paying for his “education.”
Some jackwagon was whining about global warming the other day in the kitchen of my office...he was talking about “deniers” and how anyone could watch Faux News.
You can’t help Communist, they are suicidal and insane.
The point was not about Bin Laden, who, while a murderous thug, was never a leader of any country. The point was about Moammar Gaddafi, who was the "murderous thug dictator" of Libya.

A link or two?
I knew Ayers had refused to repudiate his bloodthirsty "25,000,000" remark of 40 years ago .... and that nobody around him had repudiated it either, or him .....
Chilling thought, that he may have tons of agreement among the intelligentsia .... or "brights" as the overtly atheist among them (as opposed to slacker epiphenomenalist materialists) like to call themselves.
So it's "everyone different into the crematoria" now, is it? I think liberalism, now become Progressivism (Neo-Stalinism would be closer to it) may just have outlived its welcome in the USA.
ODE TO THE WELFARE STATE
Mr. Trumans St. Paul, Minn., pie-for-everybody speech last night reminded us that, at the tail-end of the recent session of Congress, Representative Clarence J. Brown (R-Ohio) jammed into the Congressional Record the following poem, describing its author only as A prominent Democrat of the State of Georgia.
Father, must I go to work?
No, my lucky son.
Were living now on Easy Street
On dough from Washington.
Weve left it up to Uncle Sam,
So dont get exercised.
Nobody has to give a damn
Weve all been subsidized.
But if Sam treats us all so well
And feeds us milk and honey,
Please, daddy, tell me what the hell
Hes going to use for money.
Dont worry, bub, theres not a hitch
In this here noble plan
He simply soaks the filthy rich
And helps the common man.
But, father, wont there come a time
When they run out of cash,
And we have left them not a dime
When things will go to smash?
My faith is shrinking in you, son,
You nosy little brat:
You do too damn much thinking, son,
To be a Democrat.
When you're talking about your standard sheeperal, the basis of their ideology is the transfer of consequences from those who make bad decisions to those who make prudent decisions or the entirely innocent. The welfare system & abortion are great examples of both of these.
Now, when you're talking about those who USE the "sheeperal" in order to get power, just read "You can still trust the communists to be communists" to understand them. Because that's what they are - communists.
