The Great Liberal Panemonium Machine

The Mexican swine flu pandemic? Oh, that’s soooo yesterday. Global Warming? All those confident “scientific” predictions are falling apart around the world, even as greedy politicians still try to squeeze the last little drops of power and money out of them. Human flesh-eating bacteria? SARS? Ozone holes? Mad Cow? The Curse of the Killer Tomatoes? Water torture? CO2? Bee Colony Collapse? It never ends. As long as scare stories sell, as long as millions of indoctrinated suckers fall for them they will never end. They’ve got you on a rat-running wheel, running scared every day, like rats scrambling to get away from electrical shocks that never actually come.

The Left rules by constant fear, but none of its predicted catastrophes come true. Ever notice that? Instead, we do have real things to worry about, all right — but half of them are the results of the Media Pandemonium Machine itself. Like one third of the little kids in our world who are now convinced — by cynical or deluded adults — that they won’t live long enough to enjoy a healthy adulthood. That is a terrible burden imposed on little children by the Left, in its never-ending grab for power.
There is an element of sadistic cruelty in the Leftist Pandemonium Machine. “Pandemonium” is the imaginary Hell of devils, and there is something truly demonic about the torrent of media madness we have to tolerate every day.
The Great Liberal Pandemonium Machine is spreading disease, all right, but it’s a psychiatric disease — of unjustified fear, depression, and despair.
there are some very realistic dangers — like terrorists blowing up a chunk of Manhattan or getting nuclear weapons.

Facist Feminism

Seen with Sarah Palin, seen in their absolute silence on the misogyny of Islamofacism, seen in their silence on the cultural practice of female genital mutilation (female circumcision), and on and on.

Feminism apparently means being a socialist slut to women like Jessica Valenti.

OK, so there are a whopping seven pharmacies certified by PFLI. It means the pharmacy won’t dispense the morning-after pill, and in some cases, any contraception at all. This is apparently very, very anti-woman… because, you know, all women care about is accessibility to the morning-after pill and easy contraception! Not only does this make these pharmacists anti-woman, but it makes them “extremist liars”… all for following their own principles and values in the workplace.
Now, here’s where we get into the fun part. What Jessica, that little sweetykins, is basically saying is that pharmacists should not be allowed to run their pharmacies how they choose, all because she has a disagreement about what medicines they should and should not be dispensing.
If Americans are so concerned about the accessibility of contraceptives and the morning-after pill, the pharmacies that refuse to carry them will go out of business.
Modern day feminism does not stand for choice.

Is the Fear of Obama Justified?

I keep seeing things like this from Rick Moran – a great thinker and writer who has called things straight many times – and I just wanted to comment:

But this fear of Obama has so unsettled many conservatives that any words spoken or written that don’t paint him as the devil incarnate, or damn his policies as the second coming of Karl Marx, or express the widespread view among many conservatives that he will trample the constitution, stifle all dissent, surrender to al-Qaeda, and impose socialism on us – gives the anti-intellectuals the idea that anyone who deviates from their “truths” is an Obama supporter and deserving of being cast into the outer darkness.

This is nuts.

and this:

Obama will not turn America into a Marxist state. There will be no gulags or prison camps where conservatives and Obama regime opponents will be rounded up and sent for re-education (even though there is a sizable subset of Obama supporters who would no doubt crave such treatment of righties).

Obama will not cancel future elections, initiate Soviet style restrictions on free speech (more on the Fairness Doctrine later which, btw, is hardly “a Soviet style restriction”), make us stand in line for toilet paper, or place his smiling visage on 10 story high office buildings in order to perpetrate a cult of personality (I think).

Obama will not “take away” your guns, close churches, shutter conservative newspapers, shut down Fox News, darken conservative blogs, or take any other actions that would smack of dictatorship or authoritarianism.

No actions that smack of dictatorship or authoritarianism?  Its crazy not to take these people at their word.  For example:

Fairness Doctrine – with a wave of your hand you would let the one area of conservative media that can be accessed?  The Democrats in Congress have let out notice after notice after notice that they are coming for talk radio and nothing will stop them.  There is a mention that big corporations are involved, but radio is peanuts for them, so you can simply believe they will be bought off by a Congress willing to shove yet another big pile of billions through the till.  And then what?  Encouraged by their shutdown wouldn’t they come for the internet?  Obama is already talking about appointing a National Chief Technology Officer to his cabinet and then why not nationalize the broadband carriers and enforce them.  All in the name of fairness?

Would such a thing happen all at once?  Of course not.  First they need to get the Supreme Court jiggered to ensure their outcome and the walking dead there are all liberals anyway – so it might take a while.  But why not make sure you get that Rush Limbaugh guy shut up and take your chances with the courts?  They keep saying they will.  Why are you so reluctant to believe them.

Electoral College – For years now the “antiquated and outdated” electoral college has been railed against by liberals.  They have passed laws in several states trying to get around that whole messy Constitutional Amendment requirement that should be followed if they really wish to change this fundamental part of our system – just having votes distributed based on the split of the popular vote.  However, that is only within a state and until they can get all states it doesn’t help as much.  Do you not think they would put on the pressure – and then ACORN can register lots of nice fake voters in the big cities and control every single election for the future.

Would Americans put up with it?  They are in the third full generation of public education by the unions.  Most of them don’t even really understand the Electoral College or the implications of giving the country away to those willing to cheat with its repeal – in theory or in fact.  Is this a fighting issue for anybody?  It would be pooh-poohed by the media as just a technical change to get rid of a nonsensical and undemocratic system set up by a bunch of rich white men hundreds of years ago who didn’t understand the needs of modern society.

The Democrats are actively working in every state to accomplish this by stealth.  Shouldn’t we take them at their word?  Or is that just nuts.

Voter Fraud – Today we see the beginning of a tidal wave of non-existent voters from ACORN and their allies.  Would an Obama justice system investigate any fraud related to ACORN?  They will jump right on any claim against Republicans, but if the whole voting system is stacked to such an extent that no matter how many real votes there are the Democrats come out as winners – wouldn’t that sort of be something to worry about?

Nuts?  Its happening right in front of our eyes today.

So no, I don’t think I’ll have to stand in line for toliet paper or see churches closed (I might see them stripped of their tax-exempt status).  I already see socialism being imposed on us with a Republican administration (nationalized banks, nationalized insurance companies, soon to be nationalized health care) and I oppose it.  I see Democrats in Congress holding hearings on how they can steal all private pension money in the name of “safety” – as Argentina already is moving to do.

I don’t see Obama as a devil, or a Muslim, or much more than an empty suit who can read a teleprompter.  I do see him as the lever to put in place so many things to thwart conservatives and bring forward dependance that we might eventually end up with 2, 3, maybe even 5 or so little balkanized Americas in 20 years though.

The King Assassination

My most vivid memory of the murder of Dr. King? Being scared out of my mind that my Mom and Dad might not be able to make it home safely.

As a 10 year old, I certainly wasn’t aware of the political and racial issues represented by Martin Luther King. he was always in the paper and on television, but news like that was a background noise to someone that young. Some news always gets through – less than a year before Israel kicked the snot out of the Arabs, there was a war going on – but the most important things were going to school, having to practice the piano and trumpet, playing baseball and all those kid things we did before video games and iPods.

My Mom and Dad had left our place in Maroa, Illinois to go to Greenville, South Carolina with a group of teenagers who were visiting Bob Jones University to see if they wished to attend that college when they graduated.  My sister was just 1 year old, my brother was 7 and my grandmother was staying there and taking care of us.

The first indication I had that something was happening was watching my Grandmother glued to the TV the next morning.  Of course, in honor of the slain civil rights leader just about every American city with any sort of black population incurred riots and looting.  Policemen were being shot at in the streets, cities like Chicago (very close by) were going up in flames, National Guardsmen were being called out to restore order – and my parents were about 1000 miles away.  And to get back they had to go through or around lots of nice respectful rioting.

Of course, they did get back OK but that was the first time I felt the news actually affect me personally.  How scared can you be when you’re afraid your Mom and Dad might get shot or not be able to get home.

I also developed a strong interest in Dr. King and his speeches – more than just “I Have A Dream”.  We live in different times, but its funny that the ones who still judge people most by the color of their skin are the liberals.  The conservatives have moved on (as they always do) to making sure that everyone has economic opportunity to be the best they can be regardless of their skin color.  Sort of a “content of their character” thing – as Dr. King wanted.
