Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Is this a crazy world or what?

Europe seems to be eschewing big government liberalism and moving to the right, while a country that was once the bastion of freedom and liberty (for those of you on the left, that would be America) is following its smooth-talking Shyster-in-Chief down the failed path of leftist governing.

Californiastan, meanwhile, has seen its leftist utopia wither away over the last decade or so.  The state is about to go bankrupt, after having run off individuals and businesses that succeed by way of punishing tax rates, all while inviting welfare leeches and criminal aliens.  However, RINO Gov. Arnie is thinking that maybe a flat tax is the way to go, instead of a “soak the rich” tax that has hastened the exodus of achievers to more tax friendly states like neighboring Nevada.  Heck, CA is even considering canning its welfare program!  But while CA is thinking about not pounding the rich so hard anymore, B.O. is thinking that the same thing (punishing achievers to subsidize non-achievers) that has driven Californiastan to the brink of insolvency is a darned fine idea for the country.

To add to the craziness, we now live in a society that has a media that is no better or different than Pravda during the Soviet days, Castro’s Granma, or publications that you would expect to find in Chavez’, Ahmanutjob’s, or Mugabe’s countries.  They are propaganda mouthpieces for the administration, telling us that black is white and night is day.  Case in point: the MSM keeps spinning further job losses as “sure, jobs were lost, but not as many as we thought…so that’s good, right”?  There’s a problem with that, though: the job losses are worse than B.O. expected!

Did you ever think you would see the day where American media would fail to take their role seriously in policing government?  Journalists are now comparing the Obamessiah to God (but there’s no “Obama as Messiah” thing going on, is there, Andrew?)!  Instead of scrutinizing his Marxist agenda, his ties to domestic terrorists, his frequent apologies to the world for the crappy country he governs, or anything like that, the MSM delves instead to more pressing matters in B.O.’s “impossibly elegant” life:  his date night with his wife.  By the way, such an “objective” piece of news and not opinion was found in the National News section of the fishwrap.  The MSM also tells us that while Uhhh-bama has flip-flopped considerably (some might say “lie”, but why quibble over semantics?), his “flip-flops are for the common good“!  Then, of course, there’s MSNBC’s Brian Williams bowing before The One.

I mean, media bias has always been around, but we’ve gone way over the cliff and into the abyss here!  If Jon Stewart is making fun of you for kissing Oprompter’s behind too much, and if a leftist magazine like Vanity Fair admits to the pervasive media bias, then it’s safe to say that you’ve jumped the shark.

With apologies to John Lennon: Strange days, indeed.

  1. What really irritates me about my fellow Californians, is that they bitch and whine all the time. They complain, say they hate the state and local gubmint, then vote the same bastages into office again and again. Pelosi anyone?

  2. @ Jenn—

    Welcome to the world of Memphis, TN. We have had the same mayor in office for 18 (or so) years now, and this poor city has been on the downslide since then. People bitch, and people complain, but NOBODY WILL VOTE FOR SOMEONE ELSE! It is, I believe, mostly because of the “Democratic” demographic of Memphis.

  3. Hey, SiSo! You’re a fellow Memphian, too? Glad to see my “peeps” in da house! Sorry, I was speaking “Herenton-ese”, but I’m sure you picked up on that. 😆

  4. I was a native Memphian who once loved that city, but I escaped about 4 1/2 years ago. I will never call it home again, it has become the “land of the lost.” I crossed the border to Mississippi without looking back.

  5. I hear you, Mike. I miss my family back in Memphis, and the BBQ is second to none. But man, that place is but a shell of what it was when I grew up there.

    I miss the Memphis that was, not the Memphis that is.

  6. Hey there’s a possibility that King Willie won’t run in the next mayoral election. That is if he can have the Congressional seat that currently belongs to Cohen. Of course Herenton said that he wouldn’t run this last time if the city council would make him city school superintendant again. Willie, along with other famous politicians of color, has been known to have a problem with the truth.
