Why Lefties Don’t Get It

Missive from the great bastion of progressivism and idiocy – The Democratic Communist People’s Republic of San Francisco:

The anger found at these town mauls can only be explained by the many years of failed Bush doctrine and his ruinous economic policies.

And yet folks who think history only gets in their way point their rage at Democrats. I’ve seen these protesters. These people have lost jobs, homes and their hope for a reasonable future, and these forums are the only place they can express themselves.

I am not excusing them. They reminded me that we have lost our historical perspective along with our collective mind.

It is clear that we are all losing our health care dollars to a feeding frenzy of shortsighted greed and that the fix is in. There’s no relief in sight, not without a single-payer system.

We all seem to be crashing headlong into a financial abyss of joblessness, bankruptcy and foreclosure.

So why not scream and yell and holler? I only wish these protesters would take their righteous anger out on the people who deserve it the most: obstructionist Republicans.

You get it now?  Its all Bush’s fault!

Good Luck In Iran

Hidden somewhere in the news lately is the fact that Iran announced that they had detained 3 people on their border.  The Iranians call them CIA spies of course, while the news reports have been about ‘hikers’.  Well, it turns out that they are died-in-the-wool kooks from Bezerkley:

Three Americans whose disappearance in Iran has prompted concern from U.S. officials are idealistic UC Berkeley graduates whose interest in Middle Eastern culture and human rights led them abroad to study and do freelance journalism, friends and colleagues said Monday.

Shane Bauer and Joshua Fattal, who are 27, once lived in the same Oakland co-op and taught a student-led class at Berkeley that envisioned a harmonious, postcapitalist society. Sarah Shourd, Bauer’s 30-year-old girlfriend, describes herself on one Web site as a lover of “fresh broccoli, Zapatistas and anyone who can change her mind.

Perhaps its just me, but how stupid can you be to decide to go ‘hiking’ on the Iranian border?

Bauer graduated with honors from UC Berkeley in 2007, earning a bachelor’s degree with a major in peace and conflict studies and a minor in Arabic. He went to Sudan’s Darfur region to research a thesis on the crisis there.

Shourd is described by those who know her as passionate about teaching, traveling and politics. After receiving a bachelor’s degree in English in May 2003, she worked as a tutor with Americorps, a tutoring service in Berkeley and a charter elementary school in Oakland.

Fattal, who earned his bachelor’s degree in environmental economics and policy, is a Pennsylvania native who recently worked and lived at a sustainable living research center in Oregon.

Good luck in that Iranian prison you twits.

15 Patients Die in SF Hospital During Earth Hour

clipped from www.bbspot.com
San Francisco, CA – Fifteen patients on life support and in surgery died at San Francisco General Hospital when power was cut for “Earth hour” on Saturday.
The hospital was pleased with their participation in the worldwide celebration of the planet.  “We asked all the patients and their families if they were all right with us cutting the power.  To a person, they all said as stewards of this planet it was their duty to observe Earth Hour.  They knew the risks and were willing to take it,” said hospital administrator Lawrence Cho.
Cho said that it was a net gain for planet Earth, despite the deaths. “The dead patients will no longer use any energy, and actually will be turned into energy in our patient incinerator,” said hospital administrator Lawrence Cho.
Heart surgeon Dr. Gregory Morris was doing an open-heart procedure when the lights went out.  “I wasn’t sure what I was cutting into.  Turns out it wasn’t his heart, but his bowels.  Unfortunately, Mr. Simms didn’t make it.”

Peace N Love N Eternal Utopia

Behold the voice of the progressive masses from the Democratic Communist People’s Republic of San Francisco:

After the laws banning all guns are passed, there should be an amnesty period that would allow gun owners to voluntarily turn in their guns. After that, a system of rewards for informants could be put in place, with upgraded rewards for turning in family members who still own guns.

We should not only get rid of the guns in circulation now, but melt down those in museums; they have no place in our world. When all guns are gone, everywhere, the world will return to the peaceful, nurturing society that existed before the scourge of firearms made us violent.

Of course, warrantless personal/vehicular/home searches would be necessary, but what a small price to pay for a safe, orderly, peaceful society!

JEFFREY L. SUITS Kensington

So somehow the whole history of the world before firearms has passed recognition by Mr. Suits.  The piles of dead by the Egyptians and Hitties and Romans and Mongols and so many others were accomplished without guns.  The utter tyranny and slavery that has been almost all of human history seems to have completely slipped by this utter moron.  And to get it he wants a) family members to snitch on each other, b) absolute and utter government tyranny to take anything they wish and c) absolute government authority to search anything they want.

Don’t these people understand that the people with the guns are probably the ones most well positioned to resist this kind of idiocy – as the founding fathers foresaw and the reason why they put that whole second amendment thing in the Constitution – and that the power to destroy goes both ways.  They won’t be in power forever and if we then decide that kicking down doors in San Francisco to find say drugs or illegals doesn’t need a warrant, do they think that will be a fine and wonderful use of government initiative?

Utopia apparently means Stupidity.

Bezerkley’s Newest – Save the Planet Support Groups

Just when you think the busybodies and nannies of Bezerkley can’t get any crazier you find stuff like this:

To meet its ambitious goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Berkeley is encouraging all 100,000 residents to join support groups to help individuals fight global warming.

Like Alcoholics Anonymous and Weight Watchers, the groups are part social, part confessional and partly about accountability.

Join a support group and save a polar bear.  I wonder if people will be driving to these groups?  And in that case doesn’t that sort of defeat the whole purpose?  After all, who wouldn’t want to:

The program encourages participants to meet four times over a month to calculate their carbon footprints, create individual goals and help each other meet those goals. The goals can range from giving up driving to insulating one’s hot water heater to eating more vegetarian meals.

The program allows much leeway with the details. Some groups meet for wine and cheese or a potluck, some meet during an office lunch break, others meet after church services.

This would obviously be The First Church of the Bush-Haters and Mother Gaia Lovers.  I think they give the whole thing away with that wine and cheese line.  This is just a hip way for ultra-liberal kooks to get together and drink a “nice full-bodied Napa Cabernet” and honk down some goat cheese.

As for doing anything to “Save the Planet” – by their own standards the only thing they could really do that would help is to kill any rugrats they have expelled, followed by ritual suicide. 

Unfortunately they never seem to actually follow through on their beliefs.

Fiscal Liberals

Interesting that with Kaleefornia having a raft of tax-raising, green power mandating, budget busting initiatives on its ballot, Pravda By the Bay finds fiscal problems with these two:

Prop. 6 would increase an array of sentences on crimes related to street gangs, drug dealing and guns. For example, a gang member convicted of a violent felony would get an extra 10 years in prison. Accomplices in crimes in which a gun was used – such as a drive-by shooting – would be subjected to the same enhanced penalties as the shooter. It would increase the penalties on gang-related graffiti and prohibit illegal immigrants arrested for violent felonies or gang crimes from being released on bail without a hearing.

Prop. 9, designed to strengthen the rights of victims and to make it more difficult to release inmates from prison, also would have an enormous budget impact. It expands the victims’ rights that were approved by voters in 1982.

Now, their opposition isn’t to the idea of putting and keeping criminals in prison.  That just sort of skates by.  The big problem that Pravda has with this is it would cost money to keep these thugs in prison.

May I ask a question here – if its too expensive to provide safety for your citizens, then just what in the world do you think government is for?  Its rather obvious that keeping the murderers, rapists, and thugs out of the society of those who want to live in lawful peace just is too much of a stretch for a government that sponsors state-paid day care.

Again – we only hope that Kaleefornia keeps up the crazy.  Raise taxes, put impossible mandates in place, increase regulation, implement the whole of the progressive agenda.

We can always use the business here in Colorado.

Take One Home To Live With You Twit

The latest from the idiot coast:

Our hostages

Editors – I keep reading about the rescue of the hostages in Colombia. I wish there could also be a rescue mission for the hostages at Guantanamo Bay.

TINA MARTIN

San Francisco

The answer is contained in the subject line – you idiot liberal twat.  You want one of these stone-cold murderers to live in your house?  Feel free to volunteer.  I’m sure the military would be glad to parachute a bunch of these idiots into the Bay for you.

And just so you know – they aren’t hostabes.  They are murdering thugs picked up on the battlefield fighting against America.  As opposed to those souls who were forcibly abducted just so some narco-leftists could hold them for ransom.
