    Sure. Perhaps we’ll end up with another Bush big government Republican to replace him. Conservatism is about nothing more than killing Arabs at this point. And spare me the tears about Barack socializing the country. Those were sparse when Bush pushed the Medicare drug benefit through.

  • It's the Big Government, Stupid

    Harry Wurzbach to fiscon1

    One of the big problems for the left is that everyone over 30 years of age grew up in the age of Reagan and remembers most of the 1980s and the 1990s. That taste of economic expansion and (relatively) limited government is hard for the left to overcome. We remember what it was like to live in a two superpower world and the jubilation we saw when heaven on earth socialist states imploded. We saw what can happen when entrepreneurs are free to pursue wealth. That genie is out of the bottle.

    And yes, while we faced plenty of leftist nonsense in the schools we attended and in the media, it’s nothing like today. Who can escape it? It’s everywhere, and the internet makes sure nobody ever escapes it. I think it’s grown by leaps and bounds over the last 20 years. Children today are exposed to it all the time.

    If you’re over 30, there’s a good chance your parents and your grandparents, if not your great-grandparents too were around to make clear to you the importance of faith, family, freedom, and personal responsibility. When you heard how they made it through hard times by themselves. Even then you sensed that something had changed, that the great federal leviathan and the pall of left-liberalism had started to suck the life out of a vibrant and free society.

    It’s hopeless for many under 30. Maybe a few will eventually discover the truth and figure out why so many of us older bastards are up at arms about this expansionist government. But there are plenty others who will march on through life and vote as they have been programmed to do so during their school days.

  • Paul Rahe: Obama to Seniors Drop Dead

    08/23/2009 9:14:29 PM PDT · 5 of 9
    Harry Wurzbach to fiscon1

    While concerns about changes in Medicare and Social Security are benefiting the GOP and opponents of ObamaCare in the near term, the reaction of seniors to potential changes in these programs provide a clear reason for why the left is pushing this nonsense at a time when the federal government is in dire fiscal straits....it’s political !@#$ing gold. It will increase the number of dependents on the federal government and the left by tens of millions of citizens.

    And through the control of your health care (which is really control of your body, but that only is a matter if you want an abortion) the left can implement all of its wonderful environut agenda (and dare I say eugenics inspired agenda) on you as well.

    The left doesn’t care about personal freedom. It cares about political power. This has been the way of leftists for centuries. Conservatives view life as one of individual responsibility, good manners, voluntary cooperation, faith, and family. Many fail to understand that for many leftists, politics is their religion. They will lie, cheat, steal, and beg to accumulate more power and destroy civil society.

    The left has thrown everything at conservatives in order to secure their holy grail of American left politics: nationalized health insurance. They’ve called us Nazis, “un-American”, and extremists. The funny thing is, none of it is working because conservatives are actually standing up to them. They’re not used to that. They’re used to the Doles and McCains of the GOP bending over any time they throw a political punch. Fortunately, the opposition to this leftist power play hasn’t come from the top but from the bottom, from the actual people who will have to pay dearly for this stupidity. Once it became clear the people weren’t on board was when the entire health care “debate” changed and the rats were thrown off track. They believe the people are sitting out here in the sticks with their hands out just waiting for left wing politicians to give them crumbs of yummy government cheese.

    Now moderate Dems from red states are scared sh~tless. This opposition has driven a wedge inside the Democrat party.

    The left has engaged in a classic overreach. The country is far more conservative than they are and roughly half of the votes they received in the last election didn’t come from “progressives”. There are more Democrats than progressives in the US and there are more conservatives than Republicans in this country. It took the Dow dropping by 25% six weeks before an election along with the entire media-government complex trumpeting the Great Depression II to get their guy elected, and even then the election result was not that impressive.

    I think we are going to see a beatdown of epic proportions in the midterm elections next year. The only concern now is that the GOP not screw this up.

  • Senate Democrats Consider Tactic to Push Through Government Health Plan

    08/23/2009 8:53:14 PM PDT · 39 of 77
    Harry Wurzbach to reaganaut1

    Is there any doubt left that the primary purpose of nationalized health care insurance is to increase the power of the left in this country? The sad thing is the extent to which individuals do not see the power grab for what it is. Also, before I forget, this should make clear to the GOP once and for all that “big business” is not a constituency for them (ie the pharma companies striking a deal with the White House to promote this nationalization, GE, etc...)

    There’s a term for a political movement which becomes a secular religion of the state and which drags in large private interests to its web. But of course it’s the pissed off retiree who castigates a congressman who’s the true fascist.

    The left is comprised of those of limited means who expect something for nothing and those of means who don’t expect to have to use the crappy state run programs they want to foist on the people.

    I don’t get it. Has this country not learned from recent history? Ten years ago a leftist president was proclaiming the end of the “era of big government” and yet here we are in the 21st century with idiots clamoring for the creation of a 1960s-ish bureaucratic monstrosity to control one-fifth of the nation’s economy.

    This nonsense has been played out again and again in human history. It doesn’t work. It stagnates economies, destroys liberty, and pits group against group.

    Leftists don’t understand a thing about economic growth and wealth and job creation. They think job creation is about taking the money of the character in the Monopoly board game and dispensing it through the federal department of job creation. They want to kill the economic goose which has provided so many golden eggs (and jobs) to this country over the years and resulted in a large and independent middle class. They hate this. It may seem quaint, but these knuckleheads live and breathe Marx. They believe they are fighting the great class war and their enemy is the American bourgeois, as well as those entrepreneurs who risk their money and time to pursue their dream and create plenty of jobs and opportunities along the way for others.

    The results of nationalizing health care and some kind of cap and trade nonsense passing will be felt swiftly and severly in this country. It will absolutely kill any chance of regaining the robust economic and job growth Americans have come to take for granted. Investment will go elsewhere.

    This seems rather obvious. So why is it happening? Simple. It’s a political power grab, which happens to fit the ideology of the left. These moves will increase the political power of the left in this country by making Americans yet more dependent upon the federal government. Just take a look at how older Americans react to any proposed changes in Medicare and Social Security (nevermind the looming financial cluster both of those represent or the $2 trillion deficit the federal government faces this fiscal year).

    This crap absolutely has to be defeated. Or else we are going to be telling our children and grandchildren what living in a free and prosperous America used to be like.

    Harry Wurzbach to liesel2000

    Modern left-liberalism is generally warm and fuzzy. It’s a Disney-esque view of the world. All we have to do is wish that we want something and it is so. Forget about responsibility. Give everyone everything they need...and want.

    It’s the warmth and fuzziness which attracts many. Of course, it’s illusory, but as a political reality, and one which threatens what shreds of our liberty remain, it is oh so real.

    Though there is an undercurrent of guilt, of angst. While strawmen serve as enemies for the left, ultimately a fair amount of their angst is turned inward. You must feel bad about what you worked for because someone else may not have as much. You must atone for your environmental impact. You must apologize for actions of others of your same race, gender, faith, etc...though that is all you share with them.

    The only thing that makes me wonder is why the population isn’t more leftist. Mass media, public education, and entertainment all spew this nutty public religion 24/7/365 to a stupified populace. I guess there remains some flicker of hope for liberty in this country.

    Harry Wurzbach to DrGop0821

    The way to take this back is to make it clear that Barack and the Dems don’t have a clue about how to deal with the economic and financial markets mess, and are simply using it as an excuse to ram through some expensive, ideologically driven programs.

    Either you believe that the voting public voted for leftist policies or that they simply were fed up with a Republican administration that lost its way fiscally.

    If it’s the first scenario, then the GOP will be a permanent minority. That is, if we’ve finally reached the point in American history in which the people are too f-ing lazy and stupid to want personal liberty, then it’s over for the GOP, as the Dems will always be willing to spend more.

    I’m inclined to think it’s more of the 2nd. The Dems, with their gargantuan budget and spending bills have handed the GOP a prime campaign issue for 2010. I think a lot of people, at least the people I know who work for a living and who are well educated, are sick and tired of all of the spending and the bailouts. The GOP needs to oppose all of this crap starting yesterday...and it needs to make that opposition clear to the public.

    Anytime Barack wants to blame Bush, the answer is obvious...you’re in the Oval Office now, baby. Work all that magical 20/20 hindsight you promised during the campaign. Now is not the time for training wheels. Put up or shut up.

    The GOP needs to find its stones in a major way. The more it fails to oppose this administration, the more it reinforces the media narrative that the country is supportive of all of Obama’s agenda.

    Where are the people pointing out that despite all of Barack’s noise during the campaign, he’s basically acccepted a good portion of Bush’s war on terror strategy and tactics?

    The GOP needs to chip away at Barack’s base (a base, which came together due to some rather extraordinary circumstances). I think it does this by getting higher income voters who are disgusted by his hard shift left on economic policy...and by getting some lower income voters who are disgusted by his left wing cultural drift...all the while making it clear to the middle that the top and the bottom are squeezing you.

    Honeymoon’s over, Barack. Time to put up or enjoy your one term.

We as a nation have much more urgent matters to deal with. If people aren’t doing time for riding the backdoor express then it’s not that salient an issue. One would think that gays and any other special non-polygomous group would be primarily concerned with the war against the dudes from the 7th century.

    To think that if those guys were simply capped on the battlefield nobody would give two flips about them.

    Again the loony left seeks to create constitutional rights that don’t exist or for those for whom they’ve never existed, meanwhile seeking to get rid of those constitutional rights which have existed for centuries.

    Anyways, here’s the fundamental problem with the US circa 2008. We’re fighting a 7th century enemy but we’re expecting them to behave according to 20th/21st century rules. Absurd. The Geneva Convention is meant for nation-states and their armies. Because al-Qaida cares so much about battlefield etiquette, we must tie ourselves in politically correct left wing knots instead of grabbing the shotgun and putting the rabid dog out of its misery.

    If everything isn’t just rainbows and unicorns then the left pulls a hissy fit. Unless you are willing to get your hands dirty, you aren’t going to survive in this world. 7th century enemies call for 7th century tactics. You may speak the language of reason and human rights, but they speak the language of conquest and submission. Oh, and they don’t much care for the “rights” of gays and women. How about this...the jihadis get to move in with us and all you lefties get to live under their rules. Think of it as a cool new reality TV series. Survivor: Islamerica.

    Exactly. Past generations didn't suffer from a distorted view of their personal accomplishments because they weren't taught that things were going to be easy. Life is not easy in a free society. You have to be able to take care of yourself. Self-esteem wasn't the focus in the classroom. Learning the material was the focus. Your ability to do your part in society was paramount. Now we have many who feel good about their future inability to provide for themselves. It's all about what society is going to do for you, you budding genius you. How dare society expect you to worry about mundane things such as taking care of yourself? Can't pay your mortgage because you didn't plan properly and bought an expensive house? That's society problem, man. Man this life shit is unfair. Life got you down? Well, there's someone you can pray to who will give you all the material goodies you want now.

    So we’ll have a bunch of fast food employees who feel good about themselves.

    How many parents lack the will to stop supporting these children and force them to provide for themselves once they finish high school?

    What if they attend college and are ultimately forced to face the fact that their ‘A’ grades in high school and stratospheric IQ isn’t enough to pass?

    My wife’s brother fits this profile. He got a full ride to a very good private university. I think it took him about 3 semesters to piss it all away. Finally he was forced to make it on his own and he started at the bottom in retail. Now he’s running his own store and making good money for someone his age w/o a college degree.

    Reality (ie taking care of yourself) is what will turn many of these kids into useful members of society. Unfortunately, the current dominant political view is that reality is not something the populace should be forced to deal with.

    The natural result of parental discipline being discouraged in our culture, the ‘consume at all costs today and don’t worry about paying for it tomorrow’ ethos of our society, and everything but academics being the focus of public education.

    It’s not about what’s right. It’s about how you feel. Add to it the natural jealousy/envy/rivalry of adolescence and you have the makings of a perfect storm. American youth suffer from a bad case of entitlementialism. Unfortunately, their parents do as well.

    We as a nation cannot have an economic downturn, though that is an inevitable part of a market economy. We operate as though things must always be better, no matter the cost. It’s why our government is leveraged to the hilt and why many households are so too.

    The American Dream is now an entitlement. And that is why our economy and government are thrashing about.

    Nobody in this country has the courage to say “no” to the demands of anyone else.

    I don’t need a DPS checkpoint to tell you where the illegals are in Houston. They hang out on a street corner two blocks from my house waiting for someone to pick them up to work. I’m not an expert on Houston city ordinances but at a minimum, these individuals seem to be loitering.

    Arrrgh. When you don’t let crappy companies fail, all you will end up with are crappy companies, sucking on the government teat.

    Grossmann said that the team trainer, who checked her out the next day, said she probably had a concussion and barred her from practice for the next two days. Grossmann said she’s also been required by the school to attend counseling and missed a day of classes.

    Counseling? Lemme guess, the administration wants her to understand that being a Republican is a hate crime.

    I guess they should have been killed on the battlefield instead.

    Maybe the ones at Gitmo should simply be subject to a post-fetal abortion? The left should be cool with that.

    The GOP needs to target and exterminate the Blue Dogs in 2010. Those are seats that should be held by the GOP.

    Chambers and McCarthy were proven correct by history. Just something to consider when we are told that there are not efforts afoot to influence the federal government from abroad. These efforts are more likely to influence the American Left as it is most sympathetic to those who oppose the fundamental character of this nation and wish to change that character.

    This is the problem when government policy is predicated on an assumption of continual economic growth. Instead of letting the market work and allowing prices to adjust as market participants adjust, the government intervenes.

    But the economy must always grow. How else are all of the goodies promised to the public going to be paid? Well, the government can always print money, but at some point inflation and interest rates will start to creep up.

    At the end of the day, it may be fashionable to blame the politicians, but it’s the people in whom the fault lies. You wanted something for nothing. You believed you could get something for nothing. And in the end, you will be left with nothing.

    Americans by and large like to celebrate our work ethic, our strength. But time and time again we are content to push the easy button at the polls.
