How can some great artists be so foolish?

….but, as Animal Magnetism points out, some of the lyrics are, well, deeply inane

When I was a kid back in the Seventies, there was a song by the British band Ten Year After called I’d Love To Change The World.  That song included these lyrics:

Tax the rich, feed the poor

‘Till there are no rich no more

Even the seventeen-year old me thought that was stupid.  “If there are no rich no more,” I remember thinking, “who the hell is going to feed the poor then?”  These lyrics seemed to that younger me to describe the very folly of killing the goose that lays the golden eggs.

Yep, I loved that song musically, but the lyrics? Based in nonsense on top of more nonsense. But, like Animal, I find it is John Lennon’s Imagine that takes the Cake of Idiocy

I loathe this song.  I’ve been called a heartless bastard for saying so, but I nevertheless loathe this song.  it’s the worst sort of mushy-headed puffery masquerading as some kind of high ideals.  Consider:

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world

Oh good grief! Could Lennon have been more foolish? Yet, Leftists still buy into this garbage today, and, basically, if you break it down, the lyrics seem to echo today’s Democratic Party rhetoric. Wealth is greed, possessions are bad, Individualism is to be rejected……………

Intellectual? No, just failed, foolish ideas fools cling to

Sarah Silverman- Professional Idiot

Egads the stupid is deep with this one

Comedian Sarah Silverman got an earful from her social media followers on Sunday after appearing to mistake a pair of bright orange construction markings for swastikas painted by neo-Nazis.

The 46-year-old comedian wrote that she was on her way to get coffee when she noticed the markings on the sidewalk.

Of course, Silverman’s followers were quick to point out that the markings were, in fact, innocuous markings used in construction, often to designate a spot for which there is a pipe or a wire underneath.

So much more amusing because she mocks the intellect of Conservatives all the time. Smooth move Sarah!

Why the EPA, and every other DC bureaucracy must be reigned in

The Left has been screaming that President-Elect Trump is picking people to lead federal agencies they are critical of. Of course picking people who are critical is a positive, or could be anyway. These people might actually bring some positive changes, like, less regulations, lower budgets, and yes, common sense! Take the EPA for example

But alas, now comes the federal government to tell the inhabitants of Alaska’s interior that, really, they should not be building fires to keep themselves warm during the winter. The New York Timesreports the Environmental Protection Agency could soon declare the Alaskan cities of Fairbanks and North Pole, which have a combined population of about 100,000, in “serious” noncompliance of the Clean Air Act early next year.

Like most people in Alaska, the residents of those frozen cities are burning wood to keep themselves warm this winter. Smoke from wood-burning stoves increases small-particle pollution, which settles in low-lying areas and can be breathed in. The EPA thinks this is a big problem. Eight years ago, the agency ruled that wide swaths of the most densely populated parts of the region were in “non-attainment” of federal air quality standards.

That prompted state and local authorities to look for ways to cut down on pollution from wood-burning stoves, including the possibility of fining residents who burn wood. After all, a declaration of noncompliance from the EPA would have enormous economic implications for the region, like the loss of federal transportation funding.

The problem is, there’s no replacement for wood-burning stoves in Alaska’s interior. Heating oil is too expensive for a lot of people, and natural gas isn’t available. So they’ve got to burn something. The average low temperature in Fairbanks in December is 13 degrees below zero. In January, it’s 17 below. During the coldest days of winter, the high temperature averages -2 degrees, and it can get as cold as -60. This is not a place where you play games with the cold. If you don’t keep the fire lit, you die. For people of modest means, and especially for the poor, that means you burn wood in a stove—and you keep that fire lit around the clock.

Of course the reality is that heat is as valuable as food or water. Extreme cold will kill you, but that is reality. central planners do not deal in reality. They deal in idealsim, and idealism is winless when pitted against reality, but that will never dissuade the central planning morons. The EPA, of course, is not alone in its well intended idiocy, pojt put any federal agency, or department, and you can find waste, over regulation, and policies that hurt real people and often make issues the agency is supposed to help worse rather than better.

So now police protecting people is, wait for it, RAAAAACIST!!

That rumbling sound you hear is George Washington rolling in the ground Dave Blount sums it up

This is what happens when children reach physical if not mental adulthood without ever receiving needed spankings or even hearing the word “no”:

I would argue that this is also a glaring sign of how detached from reality and critical thinking these students are

Protesting students at George Washington University say forcing them to be protected by campus police is akin to an “act of violence” — because police officers support Donald Trump.

So, all police voted from Trump? And because an officer supported Trump they are likely to hurt people? This is what happens when you teach kids that hating people who vote or think differently than they do is acceptable.

The students have demanded campus leaders direct money to several diversity programs to rectify the situation, one of several demands lodged with administrators recently as left-leaning students at the private, Washington D.C.-based university reel from Trump’s election.

Ah yes, these little Stalinist starter kits have “demands”. Let’s have a peek at said demands

“The university must re-channel its resources and money to its fundamental requirement: to protect its students,” the demand letter reads. “This safety must not depend on the University’s police. The Fraternal Order of Police, the largest police union in the United States, has formally endorsed President-Elect Donald Trump. The FOP includes over 10,000 members in Washington D.C., many of which have jurisdiction over GW’s campus. Placing us in these officers’ care is an act of violence, especially for Black students.”

I wonder what would happen if one of these miscreants little snots were to call police and the police said “hey, tough luck. We do not want to victimize you.” Wanna bet the students would be irate that the police did not do their job? Of course, 99% of these officers would respond and help the endangered student no matter of their politics. In other words, the police would be what these students are not. TOLERANT! And speaking of being intolerant bigots, which is what these students are, look at some of their other demands.

The school must always assert itself on the side of students of color

Is this not racist? To assume guilt for students who are “not of color”. Would this not mean no legal resource or any ability for a redress of grievances for White students?

GWU cannot harbor “structural Islamophobia”or interfere with Muslim students’ attire.

In other words Muslims would get special privileges to scream Islamophobia at the drop of a hat, a hat they would most likely be dropping

GWU must “increase the acceptance of Palestinian international students to prevent their genocide at the hands of Israel”

Sure, because Israel, which actually practices honoring freedom of religion and actual tolerance, and which treats women as equals is evil to the Left

Sexual assault claims must always be believed

Oops, there goes innocent until proven guilty, another American value trashed by the Left.

Jim Hoft should probably take his meds and lay off blogging

Good Freaking Grief! Hoft, the Gateway Pundit is diving into the deep waters of stupidity, with Pillow Gate! The thing is this. Lots of people use pillows, as back support, for comfort, etc. I have a pillow I am using right now because of my bad back. Again, many people do it. Maybe Hoft has never noticed that chairs, sofas, and love seats have things called cushions? Good Freaking Grief! Reading The Gateway Pundit is like watching a monkey F*#& a football, except the monkey likely has more credibility than the Gateway Pundit Weasel does at this point.

Look there are dozens of things to go after Hillary about. Her lies, her despicable conduct regarding Benghazi, her lies about lying, her Leftist views, her lies about being a damned liar, her corruption, and did I mention she lies? A LOT! But rather than go on substance, Hoft goes with nuclear grade idiotic conspiracy theories? Of course, the weasel lied repeatedly about Ted Cruz during the primaries, so maybe Hillary’s lies do not bother Hoft so much, who knows.

Moonbattery adds this bit of truth

Hillary Clinton has to be the most conspicuously corrupt candidate ever to win a major party nomination. She also has a decades-long public record of unaccomplishment, characterized by conspicuous incompetence. She has been caught in more provable lies than most anyone, and is infamous for influence peddling as Secretary of State. Yet some can’t find anything more damaging to throw at her than pillows — or rather, conspiracy theories about her secret health condition, which are supposedly supported by her use of pillows:

Truly sad. I expect this type of idiocy from Leftists, but not from our side.

Why yes, gun control cultists are knuckle dragging morons

The people in this video are clueless. Clueless about “human rights” self-defense IS one. Clueless about our Constitution. Clueless about the number of self-defense gun uses every year. Clueless about falling rates of crime, homicide, homicide by firearm, and accidental death by firearm. There is not thinking behind their position. It is strictly emotional based on lies by the gun control crowd. If you ever wonder why I refer to people like this as gun control “cultists”, well, wonder no more

Why yes, Matt Damon is an idiot

And a full fledged member of the Cult of Gun Control

Awww,Matt says it is so “personal” Yes, yes my ability and right to protect my life and those of my loved ones ARE damn personal to me. Nothing any gun control advocate, including you Matt Damon, has ever sought would do anything to reduce crime. The only thing the laws you advocate would do is create more gun free zones, and defenseless people. And yes crime would rise Mr. Damon

It would probably pain the not-so-talented Mr. Damon to discover that gun crime has exploded in Australia since they passed gun laws that were ignored by 80-percent of the population, and that the population is nowmore at risk because of excessive gun laws.

Australians may be more at risk from gun crime than ever before with the country’s underground market for firearms ballooning in the past decade.

Previously unseen police statistics show that the number of pistol-related offences doubled in Victoria and rose by 300 per cent in New South Wales. At least two other states also saw a massive jump in firearms-related offences during the same period.

An investigation by The New Daily unearthed previously unpublished data for firearms offences collected from police and crime statistics agencies in four states – Victoria, NSW, South Australia and Tasmania.

The statistics detail the types of firearms offences police have pursued in the courts in the past decade and show some concerning findings, including a massive 83 per cent increase in firearms offences in NSW between 2005/06 and 2014/15, and an even bigger jump in Victoria over the same period.

It is now impossible to parody the Left

Simply put, their actual absurdity is far more extreme than anything we could ever predict. the EU for example, has now outlawed saying that water hydrates

liberal_crap

EU bans claim that water can prevent dehydration

EU officials concluded that, following a three-year investigation, there was no evidence to prove the previously undisputed fact.

Producers of bottled water are now forbidden by law from making the claim and will face a two-year jail sentence if they defy the edict, which comes into force in the UK next month.

Last night, critics claimed the EU was at odds with both science and common sense. Conservative MEP Roger Helmer said: “This is stupidity writ large.

“The euro is burning, the EU is falling apart and yet here they are: highly-paid, highly-pensioned officials worrying about the obvious qualities of water and trying to deny us the right to say what is patently true.

“If ever there were an episode which demonstrates the folly of the great European project then this is it.”

There are no words!
