Obama: Imaginary Friend of Democrats

It was recently said here, women shop, men resupply. It's been several months since my last grocery-store resupply operation. I usually have a pretty good idea about what it will cost. What used to cost $200 a year ago, now costs $270.

All those people on SSI and food stamps and other forms of public assistance, they're gonna riot if this keeps on much longer. And they're gonna pray to St. Baracky, bring me the money. Since the FedGov won't cut the payments, they are inflating our money. Jeez, this is not gonna end well.

Gerard: I don't think 'chary' means what you think it means.

What the Chinese emperors once did to women's feet we can now do to human souls

Just. . . damn! That's a painful, visceral word picture that will stay with me forever.

More warrior poets, less lawmakers, please.

Chary. As in "wary of"

"Even as Obama’s methods grow more radical, his means more aggressive, and his motives darker, and his ideology more naked, most Democrats polled persist in their belief that he really is their friend."

As November approaches the remaining portions of the coup will be executed with the attacks on the system increasing in frequency and in sheer brute force.

The time for subtlety is done. There was never any thought given to eight years, because getting four was always a bad bet to begin with.

This administration has bankrupted the republic three or four times over. It has stacked the Federal civil service with literally thousands of targeted career hires bent on crushing the system. It has reshaped the Executive cabinet into a council of Czars, with the Department of Justice made into the most most criminal organization in Government. AG isn't a job; it's a tool to do a job...

The only silver lining I have is knowing that millions of Rubes will be self-identifying in the next few months.

It's going to be biblical. There will be blood, and evil will walk the land with long, proud strides.

Have a fine one.

The naked truth from someone who was a part of it in the 60s at Berkeley, and who had the shit knocked out of him on 9/11.

We are bastard brothers you know, both born in '45, growing up 12 miles apart. We probably passed each other on the Honey Run or The Skyway and sat opposite at The Pagoda on a Sunday afternoon.

How I envy you living in NYC for 30 years. I was there in the summer of 66 when the Towers were going up. I stayed at the Y on 34th and walked down to stare at them. And then 35 years later...the world came to an end.

We both know the devious prick for what he is. You much better than I.

Thanks for the outrage, and courage.

I think this post from Dr Sanity sheds some light on "liberals." They share some of the pathologies of other shame/honor cultures.


They have an intense and peculiar type of narcissism. This is part of the reason why so few "liberals" leave the ideology no matter how much real-world failure a policy causes. For that species of "liberal" the purpose of the policy is to support the personal and group psychology of "liberals." The other strain of "liberal" is the fellow-traveler that supports policies BECAUSE they will fail, and the aftermath will be beneficial to the ideology, think Cloward-Piven. "The worse the better."

Th old joke goes, "Once black, never back." Well my spin is "Once abort, you're in the cohort" Once you've crossed the line into an abortion, or know friends who have had abortions, or have been the sperm donor to a female who was obliged to have an abortion, you're pretty much hooked into the lib thinking system, because the only alternative is to believe you just killed your own child.

And the longer liberalism persists, the bigger this problem grows because one of the fundamental arguments of conservatives becomes more and more unbearable to contemplate -- that you are part of a movement that has killed 50 (soon to be 55, then 60)million babies for NO REAL REASON!

And that is why liberals have to shred the past and all previous norms of decency and even reason itself. Because as long any of these things stand. liberals stand accused of perpetrating one of the ghastliest crimes in all of history

Nobody ever wanted to claim status as a Donner Party survivor.

That's how abortion works as a recruiting tool, you know. Eat from the pot once, and you never EVER want to have to face yourself again. It's a clinical thing.

You find others in the same boat and go all Alinsky on those that stuck with the menu items.

How can Democrats continue to "feel the love" even as the whip comes down?"
In between whippings, dogs will always lick the hand that whips them. That's how.
Everything I needed to know about totalitarians I learned from watching my neighbor and his dog.
Not quite as evocative as Kindergarten, but truer.
