Progressive Liberal Democrats in MSM

Response to: "Apathy is the enemy of the electorate" by Stephen Goldstein of the Sun Sentinel.

Stephen says we need to consign devisive candidates to the ash heap of history. May I ask whether or not anyone reading this believes that our country is less devisive now that the democrats control the white house? I am "incredulous" that he finds fault with only republicans in his article. I suspect he may be a progressive liberal democrat.

Stephen obviously does not care for the tea party. But they are not being apathetic when they get off the couch to get their candidates elected. They were apathetic until this president and the left leaning democrats galvanized them into action to stop the destruction of our country through his executive orders and 50 plus unappointed czars that are circumventing congress. It is actually the liberal democrats that Stephen wants to stop being apathetic. Perhaps they are apathetic because the president has made them so. All the promises he has made and broken would make anyone apathetic.

Governor Rick Scott has "extremist ideology" according to Stephen. Anyone who does not agree with a liberal progressive democrat is immediately labeled an extremist or even a racist. These are words in their lexicon that are intended to shut down the competition. They are worn out, overused and no longer work.

I would love to hear Stephen's views on Governor Walker of Wisconsin and how the unions are trying to overturn his election. Are these moderate democrats in action?

Yes Stephen, you are correct that only constant vigilance and activism protect our rights and the rights of others. That is exactly why the tea party was formed. The tea party is off the couch and will no longer allow our rights or the constitution to be trampled.

Do Women Make Less Than Men?

The answer is “Yes” and “No”! Just recently, the liberal left has been pushing the idea that the Republicans are engaging in a “War on Women”. They make it sound like the Republicans want to suppress women and hold them down by paying them less than men, and other dastardly acts like depriving women of contraception. This is a phony argument made up out of whole cloth by the liberal left and the left-leaning media.

This argument was started in earnest during the late 60's and 70's, when the militant, anti-male, feminist movement caught hold (agitated by the likes of Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem), and the emotionally charged figure of 77 cents was put forth that that was what women earned in the marketplace as compared to the dollar earned by men. That bogus figure has now arisen again as the Democrats want to portray that the “evil” Republicans want to continue the so-called “War on Women”.

When I was growing up, most mothers were stay-at-home moms, the exceptions being women who chose the professions of teaching, nursing, and retail sales. When I was doing my under graduate college work, 90% of my fellow classmates were male. It wasn't until the late 60's and 70's that women began to enroll in college in much greater numbers and begin to prepare to start careers in areas other than teaching, nursing and retail sales.

Since that time, the opportunities for women to succeed in the business world have dramatically increased and now in certain areas, women have become the new, young dominant executives and entrepreneurs in certain professions and industries. I read somewhere that women are in the majority in law schools, as an example. This cultural change could also account for the birth rate in the U.S. becoming more like the declining birth rate in Europe and other Western countries. Career women have inordinately lower birth rates than stay-at-home moms, and for good reason.

This turnaround by the women, has sort of turned that false figure of 77 cents on its head. Those women who decide to pursue a career instead of becoming a full or part-time mother, are on a par, wage-wise, with men. More and more women have become CEO's and have entered the ranks of middle and upper echelon management than ever before. They make as much and sometimes more than their male counterparts, and all this has occurred in just the past 30 years.

But, once the equation of raising children comes into play, the pay for women declines, not because they are women per se, but because they work less hours and tend to choose jobs to revolve around the caring of their family and its obligations. So, when the left liberals try to float that canard that the Republicans want to engage in a “War on Women”, and want to pay women less than they deserve, look at the situation as of today and not go back 30 years or more. Women (and men) will generally get paid, not for the hour they work, they'll get compensated for the value they give for the hour they work. So, a woman with the same credentials as a man, will in the vast majority of cases, be treated equally as to that of a man in both pay and responsibility.

The phony “War on Women” is just a political ploy by the Democrats and Obama to try to divert attention away from Obama's pitiful record as President. It is Obama and the Democrats who are waging a “War on All Americans”, not just women.

The myth of the I.U. device

The time has long since passed when we needed to expose the myth of the I.U. device. That frequently touted but amorphous 20% of voters who decide elections and are supposedly ‘Independents’ or ‘Undecideds’ is I believe, a totally concocted category.

Insofar as the presidential election of 2012 is concerned, it is (no pun intended) clearly, a black & white issue. It is a no-brainer. We have on the one hand, and ideologically warped disaster of a president with an army of America-haters determined to implement the destruction of our nation for their own nefarious purposes.

We have on the other hand, a rag-tag gaggle of Conservatives, Republicans old & new, Rhinos, and riled-up citizens from all across the nation – formed into Tea Parties, who want to wrest back control of the Fed and return some semblance of sanity to the District of Columbia.

Many who advertise themselves as, ‘Undecided’ are in reality, posturing as ‘evolving’ intellectuals who are waiting for someone to convince them that yet another Messiah is just now descending from the Heavens and is about to light in their midst. These people are a waste of time; they are as useless as tits on a bull; I don’t believe them for a New York minute. How could anyone with a pulse still be undecided about which way this nation is heading and who is leading us off the cliff?

Okay, we admit that the mass media, once revered and feared as the all-powerful fourth estate is now in the tank for Obama. Go figure. So, Mr. & Mrs. I. U. are deprived of honest and fully-reported facts. And one thing for sure, the numbers being thrown about by political pollsters and Government agencies all suffer from just a wee tad of inaccuracy. Nether group is renowned for the accuracy of their calculations.

So, where do the ‘Independent’ and the ‘Undecided’ look in order to become educated about the issues and the candidates? Good question. ‘What we have heeyuh, is a failure to communicate.’ When it comes to factual information, we are faced with a deep chasm filled to the brim with one helluva lot of void.

I’m guessing we’re gonna be obliged to look each of the two candidates in the eye and try to divine which one means what he says. Only one of them subscribes to the Shariah practice of ‘taqiyya’, that noble technique of radical Islam that commands its followers to say and do anything necessary in order to advance the lunatic effort to establish an Islamic Caliphate that will rule the entire world. The announced plan is to first, blow Israel off the face of the globe then, establish Shariah compliance in Great Britain and following that, do precisely the same thing here in the United States.

Hello out there! Are you still independent and undecided? Are you just a bit confused? Well, let’s see if we can bring this confusion to a reasonable conclusion.

During the 2008 presidential election, while ‘We the People’ were being fornicated by a second coming of an articulate Messiah, promising ‘Hope & Change’ – the I. U. device failed and as a result, we wound up with this bastard in the White House.

Did I get that right?

Are Race and Sexual Orientation Comparable?

From the liberal gay left-wing, you constantly hear the phrase that the gay rights movement of today is the same as the civil rights movement of the 60's and 70's.

Well, are they comparable?

From our point-of-view, race and sexual orientation are not comparable; even if homosexuality stems from innate urges that the gay individual cannot control, the expression of those impulses (like all sexual behavior) involves elements of choice. According to author, pundit Michael Medved, this push for compliance can be called the new “tyranny of marriage equality”. In addition, he stated that the prospect for changes not only threatens the future institution of marriage (by altering that institution beyond recognition), but the core idea of this Republic - that legal standards and social norms should reflect the preferences (or at least the consent) of the majority of the people.

Most blacks find the comparison between gay rights and black civil rights demeaning and insulting (this does not include the self-serving Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the Congressional Black Caucus). In fact, when Proposition 8 (defining marriage as being between a man and a woman) came up for a vote in California, blacks voted overwhelmingly to define marriage as being between a man and a woman.

When gay rights advocates say that current marriage laws “discriminate” against homosexuals, they confuse discrimination against people with making distinctions among different kinds of behavior. All our laws distinguish among different kinds of behavior. That is the purpose of our laws. While people may be treated the same, all their behaviors are not.

The real issue is whether marriage should be redefined - and if for gays, why not for polygamists? Why not for pedophiles? If that happens, it then becomes the theater of the absurd and screws up centuries of tradition as set down by most cultures and religions.

Marriage is not a right but a set of legal obligations imposed because the government has a vested interest in unions, among other things, that have the potential to produce children, and to provide a stable family relationship, which is the future of the nation.

It should be said that not being allowed to marry a person of the same sex is not anti-gay, it is pro-marriage as every civilization has defined it. We, as a country have the right to determine what and how we define the term marriage. To oppose interracial marriage, for instance, is indeed to engage in bigotry, but to oppose same-sex marriage is not. Society is predicated on men and women bonding with one another in a unique way called “marriage”.

It is intolerant for the gays, who demand tolerance from others, to call those who oppose gay marriage homophobes and bigots. We should be able to agree to disagree in a civil manner.

Same-sex marriage.

Wow. What a relief. We’ve finally learned what Obama’s multi-year arduous, tortuous ‘evolvement’ hath wrought: The ‘Thoughtful One’ has shared his personal feelings regarding same-sex marriage. And, it’s okay by him.

He courageously admitted that this is a ‘states’ issue so thankfully, he doesn’t have to make any official decisions about it. People don’t realize just how hard it is to make decisions when one is President. Naturally, as one might have guessed, George W. Bush didn’t tell him how tough that part of the job would be. Y’see, only the really tough decisions reach the Oval Office and land on the President’s desk. All the easy stuff is handled by ‘others’ and only the toughest decisions are left for the Prez to decide.

For example, giving a 1.5 billion to the Muslim Brotherhood - - - piece of cake. Deciding to hire the Chinese to manufacture, deliver and install monstrously expensive bridges here in the U.S. - - the decision practically made itself. Sending a couple hundred million to Brazil to help them drill for oil and promising to buy that oil as soon as they dig it up - - no strain, no pain. Let’s do it.

But, giving the okay to ‘get Bin Laden’ – or - deciding about same-sex marriage? These are tough decisions. Regarding the ‘marriage thing’, he had it right years ago but, being the ‘thoughtful one’, he wanted to make certain that the stars were in alignment, the political landscape was favorable, the timing was right – and there were others to blame if his decision didn’t work out well. So, when all these elements fell into place precisely one day after Joe Biden said the wrong thing during an interview that was being recorded – Obama courageously, issued his well masticated decision. It worked out perfectly, just as planned by the ‘Thoughtful One’ - .and a slavish media.

What few people realized as they listened to the President’s haltingly-articulated explanation of his momentous decision, was the part his astonishing grasp of ancient history and Middle Eastern lore had played in the formulation of his brilliant ‘Same-sex’ decision.

Harking back to his early education in Muslim doctrine regarding the morays of human sexual behavior and the unique practices regarding animal husbandry, he recalled the widely-accepted ‘One Man; One Goat’ rule of thumb. From there, it was a brief, logical step to the, ‘Same-sex’ marriage stance. One Man; One Man. One what-ever to another what-ever. Not all that complicated. Just a part of Obama’s Master Plan.

Don’t let anyone kid you though, Presidential decisions are tough.

Completely Uninformed?

A well-known pundit has remarked that being completely uninformed is precisely how most liberals stay liberal. You could say that a lot of truth is contained in a jest.

The liberals constantly complain that Fox News (the #1 rated cable network), is the biggest purveyor of lies and fear mongering. Many of the liberals I know say they watch the “ratings” challenged news outlets MSNBC, CNN, and NPR and wouldn't dare watch Fox News. The Fox News channel, which generally tilts right on many issues, is known for being “fair and balanced” by not having just the conservative viewpoint presented, but has featured many liberal pundits, news contributors and commentators. For example, Fox has a whole lineup of liberals including the following: Kirsten Powers, Bob Beckel, Geraldo Rivera, Alan Colmes, Juan Williams, Tamara Holder, Doug Schoen, Susan Estrich, Pat Caddell, Mora Liasson, Sally Kohn, Dr. Mark Lamont Hill and others. Now can you list a lineup of conservative pundits and contributors on MSNBC, CNN, NPR, and the major broadcast networks of CBS, NBC, and ABC? It is a joke that some people, mainly on the left, claim that the “media” is tilting right in its coverage of the news. What planet are they living on?

How can the people, employed in the liberal news outlets, repeat the gross misrepresentations and lies when reporting on Obama and the Democrats? When you look around at reality, how can they not report the obvious and what is happening in our country? We are now approaching a national debt of $16 trillion; an unemployment rate of over 8% to 10% for 36 months straight; our credit rating was lowered for the 1st time in our history; a health care bill that most likely will be declared unconstitutional and which over 60% of the electorate want it repealed; suing some of our sovereign states for trying to enforce immigration laws that the U.S. Government won't enforce; giving money to “green” companies that were on the verge of bankruptcy because the CEO's of those companies were big campaign money bundlers; giving waivers to unions and favored companies; hiring lobbyists for his cabinet and as Czars even though he adamantly said that he wouldn't do that; and he blatantly communicated to Russian President Medvedev that he would be more flexible after the election (he assumes he will be re-elected). One wonders what he has in mind that he couldn't do now before the election?

So when people defend the indefensible and continue to make excuses (to cover his azz) for this President and the Democrats, they are definitely “completely uninformed”. You can't justify those policies no matter what your party affiliation - common sense should kick in sometime to be able to sift through the misinformation and spin put out by the various campaign committees. That's why many liberals are affected by the malady called CRI (Cranial Rectal Inversion). It is, unfortunately, almost incurable when it affects a liberal and that is why they can be classified as being “completely uninformed”, because they are.

“I Gave The Order”

Yes, President Obama – you gave the order that represented final approval to initiate the highly-secret operation to, ‘Get Bin Laden’.

Any sitting President would have done the same thing – any President. You had no part in the planning of the operation, which makes sense since that is well below your pay grade as Commander-in-Chief. Aside from that, you’ve had absolutely no practical experience in military matters. The only risk you took personally with regard to this operation was, the slight potential for some political downside in the event of a failed action. However, with the Navy Seal Team always guaranteed to perform as they are trained to do – that risk was minimal.

You’ve never taken the oath as a member of any branch of our Armed Forces. You’ve never been through basic training. Furthermore, with your parental lineage, country of origin and the circumstances surrounding your birth still in question and uncertified, you could never qualify for even the most basic Security Clearance as a member of our military. But weirdly, none of this seems to matter since you are the duly-elected President of the United States – and Heaven help us, the Commander-in-Chief of our military services.

What sticks in my craw and I’m guessing, sticks in the craw of our all-volunteer, active Armed Forces and their families – and most particularly the families of our wounded and deceased veterans, is what you did following the successful operation. First, was your unbelievable stupidity in exposing the individuals who were involved in ‘getting Bin Laden. You rewarded their extraordinary courage and legendary military skills by blowing their cover and rendering them vulnerable to attacks on themselves and their families. In my book – in anybody’s book - that was an act of high treason.

And in what has become one of your more obvious character traits, you added insult to injury by trumpeting this successful military operation as if it were in large part, due to your own tactical brilliance. In actuality Barack old boy, all you did which was what any President would have done, you ‘gave the order’. Well, Golly Gee – how brave of you!

And now, you’ve compromised our national security in the most profound way possible. You’ve opened the door and welcomed the Muslim Brotherhood into the most sensitive agencies and operations in our Federal Government.

Way to go, Mr. Prez. When the blood-thirsty demons of Sharia-Islam are actually ravaging every aspect of our traditional freedoms and savaging every aspect of our form of government – you’ll be able to say with pin-point accuracy, “I gave the order.”

Does Obama Practice Economic Common Sense?

After over three years of the reign of the all-mighty, all-knowing “Messiah”, Barack Hussein Obama, does anyone, reading this who voted for him, have any tinge of “buyers remorse”? If not, you should!

Remember when everyone here was complaining about the Bush deficit and how irresponsible he was, well, what about quintupling the deficit in three years, not 8 years? How can liberals, without looking foolish, now defend the indefensible? Does partisan political consideration trump economic common sense? Is the Pope Catholic?

How do you responsibly raise taxes during an “economic recession”? The “Pied Piper of Cluelessness” has no clue as to what his economic and taxing policies will produce as a drag on our economy and its eventual recovery ( or maybe he does know in a sinister way?).

How do you spend trillions of dollars you don't have to spend? When only 53% of the people pay income taxes and the other 47% don't, there will be a tax revolt sometime in the future. People are starting to realize that the “power to tax is the power to destroy”, everyone it seems except the President and the Democratic Congress. Did you notice that most all of the power players in the Obama Administration are lawyers? Only 8% of the people advising him have had any kind of meaningful, hands-on business experience at all. Truthfully, if you were looking for a CEO to run your business, would you hire Obama to run it? Would his experience as an ACORN trainer count?

Obama likens himself to FDR, (and now recently to the “evil” Ronald Reagan), who (FDR) said, “We have nothing to fear, except fear itself”, but Obama has changed that phrase to, “You have nothing to fear, except not enough fear”. During this upcoming campaign, he is going to use the tactic of playing one economic group against another through the use of “class warfare” by demonizing the “rich” against the so-called middle-class and the poor because there are more of them than there are of the rich, and therefore more potential voters.

A basic economic principle is that you can't create prosperity by over taxing the productive citizens, and by spending money that you don't have on the non-productive citizens. That is a recipe for economic disaster, but what can you expect from a “Community Organizer” with zero business experience, and who was raised on the principles and ideas of Saul Alinsky, author of “Rules for Radicals”, and the views of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, a white-hating, anti-Semite, admitted Socialist and Obama mentor for over 20 years? Remember, “You can take the man out of Chicago, but you can't take Chicago out of the man”.

So it seems like the word “common sense” is not so common among Obama and his friends, in fact his economic policies should actually be called “nonsense”, for that is what they really are.

Mr. Nice Guy

The popular rap is that, while some people do not agree with his policies, people generally like Barack Hussein Obama personally, and think that he is a nice guy.

Oh really? Are the American people still so mesmerized by this cat that they willingly overlook his devious deceptions and his hypocritical statements and positions on everything from political opposition to his phony support for Israel? Not to mention his egregious lies whenever he makes reference to his achievements regarding the state of the economy.

This President has trumpeted his utter disdain for the Founding fathers, the Constitution, the other two co-equal branches of the Federal Government – and the free-enterprise system. He lives within his own bubble of failed Socialist ideology and is blind to the outside world, the real world.

Whether or not he is actually ignorant of American history, it is painfully obvious to all, that he is totally dismissive of the lessons learned by generations of Americans.

It doesn’t take a professionally-trained psychiatrist to recognize that our boy Barack is a classic case of Narcissism-gone-wild. We are dealing with a person who is totally immersed in his ego-centric issues, to the exclusion of all other considerations. Issues regarding the condition of our citizenry, the state of our economy or the precarious state of our national security, are unimportant to him. Oh, he will pay lip service to these issues and speak of them in platitudes - but, he really could care less.

He is unwilling to entertain even the possibility that the vast majority of our citizens feel that what he is doing in terms of his regulatory policies and aggressive taxation, has the effect of stifling entrepreneurship. He has turned a deaf ear to strongly-expressed opposing viewpoints from every sector of our society. His arrogance is unprecedented in Presidential history.

He is committed to his unbridled drive toward achieving total and complete control over every aspect of the lives and fortunes of all Americans. Mr. Nice Guy to the contrary, we will not let that happen. Remember Americans – If Mr. Nice Guy wins – WE LOSE!
