No Worse Tyranny

Posted in Books & Reading, Politics, Society on March 26th, 2012

One the great Truths was revealed to masses of Mankind by Robert Heinlein in The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress, originally published in 1966.

No Worse Tyranny
Heinlein Nailed It

As was often the case with Mr. Heinlein, he was exactly correct. Tyranny of the worst sort will not be enacted by the angry despot; it will be forced upon the people by a more kindly despot, the Nanny State.

This, more than any other of their evils, is why the Liberals and Progressives are the enemies of freedom and liberty. They are Statists, promulgating neo-Socialist policies, for “our own good” as they see it.

#ILikedObamaCare

Posted in Humor, Politics on March 25th, 2012

You got to give Obama credit for fully embracing Social Media and giving his zombie cultists the illusion that they’re involved in his and his handlers’ regime in a manner more substantial than just livestock being harvested for votes and support. Their latest ploy using Twitter, #IlikeObamaCare is an example of this.

They got a pretty good response from their base too, some of which were cherry-picked to be on the boy’s campaign website since they showcased what Obama and his handlers want people to believe. That’s a stunning bit of campaigning, especially since essentially nobody – certainly not the Congress that voted for it – knows what all ObamaCare contains, demands, and entails.

But, given the Law of Unintended Consequences and the nature of any and all government interventions into the private sector, I’m thinking that, in the unlikely event that the SCOTUS doesn’t declare ObamaCare unconstitutional, the  future will have and different “hashtag.”

The ever delusionally hopeful Left and their minority tenants don’t wish to- and certainly refuse to hear it, but any program, public or private, predicated upon the antithetical premises of giving something to anyone and reducing overall costs, is doomed to reaching a negative result. In the case of healthcare or health insurance this necessarily means a reduction in the levels and quality of care, especially among young children, the aged, and those will chronic disabilities.

One need only look back at the great harm the early iterations of HMOs wreaked upon healthcare and health insurance to find solid evidence to support this idea. The harm those early HMOs wreaked was so great that this method of handling healthcare and health insurance isn’t even practiced anymore.

Of course, none of this will happen until long after Obama is no longer in office and probably not until after he and his family have fled the remains of the country, so he might actually get a chuckle reading the tweets with the #ILikedObamaCare hastag.

Just Too Good

Posted in 2012 Election, Humor, Politics on March 25th, 2012

Recently the Obama Campaign Establishment released the 17-minute “mockumentary” lauding Obama, “The Road We’ve Traveled.” At a cost of a mere $345,000, it is a wonderfully self-serving fantasy designed to con people into giving their boy another chance.

The only thing is, they forgot to produce a movie poster for it. How can you have an unprecedented departure into Hollywood theatrics like “The Road We’ve Traveled” as part of your campaign propaganda without making a movie poster for it?

Admittedly, that suggested poster took a lot of work. It’s not easy to do that sort of commercial art while simultaneously reigning in your disgust and holding down your lunch – disgust and nausea being the most common American reaction to Left’s Magic Negro.

Wrong Way
The Road We’ve Traveled

Early attempts were discarded, such as the concept art above, due to their having too much accuracy and not enough positive tone, two mutually exclusive things when discussing Obama’s tenure and “achievements.”

But, all of the above aside, once again the boy is “historical.” He’s the first POTUS to ever to cast the last shreds of passes for his dignity aside and make a short film like this to reinforce his own vision of his worth and to, he and his handlers hope, help him keep his job.

Given Obama’s limited abilities, this should be considered “par for the course” for him and his handlers though. He and they do, however, need a stern reminder that he can’t take a Mulligan because America won’t easily survive his expected “Finnegan.”

Unoccupied

Posted in Politics on March 24th, 2012

OWS is strangely schizophrenic. On one hand, as a budding Socialist revolution they’re to be reviled and, if possible utterly destroyed even if this means wholesale slaughter. On the other hand, they’re one of the better sources of entertainment available these days. When it comes to ignorance and willful stupidity, the rabble of OWS have reality television beat hands down.


Nothing Has Ever Occupied Her Mind

OWS may, now that it’s spring, go back to illegally occupying various parcels of public and private property but what passes for their minds remains unoccupied by rational thought.

I mean really! Come on. The casts from Jersey Shore could form more articulate thoughts – and behave in a more refined and law abiding manner – than these rabble.

Brown On Black

Posted in 2012 Election, Politics, Society on March 23rd, 2012

Unless they’re either hiding under rocks or Ammish, everybody in the Western World is aware that on February 26, 2012 George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fl. The lamestream media made very sure of that because they mistakenly believed that Mr. Zimmerman was White. White-on-Black crime is news; Black-on-White or, as this turned out to be, Brown-on-Black crime isn’t worth their time to report upon.

You see, as it turns out, Zimmerman self-identifies as Hispanic and certainly looks the part. But America’s MSM saw “Zimmerman, a Jewish or German name, assumed he was White, and made a sure to publicize this tragedy – always making sure to include some variant of “shot by Zimmerman, who is White.”

The Lamestream media loves race-baiting and loves any story that they use to stir up racial unrest. They know that the Blacks will get stirred up and cause some level of trouble, giving the media days and days of high-value stories that will spike the prices of their commercial spots.

This being an presidential election year with a self-identified as Black incumbent, the Liberal media has even more incentive to turn the tragedy of Trayvon Martin’s death into a media circus. Be assured that the Liberal talking heads will be referencing this sad incident in the context of Obama’s reelection bid.

It’s a sad shame that a young man died and the only reason the world knows about it is that the lamestream media decided to profiteer off of it and the civil unrest their circus could cause.
