As intellectually deep as your nearest dried up mud puddle
I am confused here, I thought the Left desired tolerance? Is Mr. Robertson not able to ask a question? I mean considering that about 98 or 99% of people prefer heterosexual intercourse to, well, what Chris Hayes’ guest obviously prefers, is it that odd that Robertson might pose such a question? As for me, I have often said I do not give a rip about who you sleep with, but I do not understand Homosexuality. I mean how would a man watch Salma Hayek dance in From Dusk Till Dawn and NOT have dirty thoughts? Does asking such a question make me Homophobic? Of course not. But, of course, the aim here is not really inclusion or tolerance, it is rather to destroy freedom of speech. Not by legislation, but by intimidation. If we are afraid to speak, the Left will have won, so, therefore I stand with Robertson, and I stand against the bullies on the Left.
What? Oh, OK, I will offer, strictly for context, the Salma Hayek scene I referenced.
Yes, I know, it is mean to mock those less intelligent than the average four-year-old, but when someone boasts about a degree in Social Justice and Peace Studies, or a Masters in Gender Studies they have it coming.
We all have dreams. Some dream of feeding all the starving people in the world. Some say, “F**k the starving people. I want all the meat for myself.”
Those people would probably love the idea of Steak ‘n Shake’s new 7×7 Steakburger.
Though the idea of a 7×7 cheeseburger isn’t new — In-N-Out, for one, has been willing to pile as many layers of patty and cheese onto a bun as you’re willing to request for as long as I can remember — the idea of a major chain putting such a burger in writing on a menu is raising some eyebrows.
But wait, the shock doesn’t end there: because according to Huffington Post, the 7×7 appears exclusively on Steak ‘n Shake’s new AllNighter Menu. Yup, you’re encouraged to eat this 1,330 tower of cheap dining excess exclusively between the hours of midnight and 6am.
A wealth tax? Another disciple of the lunatic Karl Marx displays the incredible stupidity of Marx, and those that still follow his moronic rantings.
Ah yes, Marc Lamont Hill. How did this boob ever become a professor? If I talked to this guy for two minutes, I would know he is not bright enough to be trusted to mow my lawn. In fact, if he did mow my lawn, it would take him two days, the yard would be half-mowed, my lawn mower would be broken, and he would want to charge me three times the quoted price! Seriously, this guy is a fool! He cannot grasp that a “wealth tax” would require another massive, and intrusive government agency. Stupid should hurt! And this buffoon is Phil Donahue stupid!
Two things I noticed. First the hippy was respectful, so maybe the Left has devolved over the years? Maybe they are more hostile now? Second, Friedman summed up, in just a few words, why “equality” as the Left defines it, is nothing but a shortcut to totalitarianism
Then there might be hope for him. But, as Smitty notes, Krugman is a classic example of why a “good education” does not equal real intelligence, and it certainly does not mean the one has common sense or wisdom.
Easter Sunday is probably inappropriate to use Paul Krugman as a punching bag. But it’s not a sin if Krugman does it himself, and this blog merely provides a communications path, is it?
In my next life I want to be a conservative policy scammer. Think of how much nicer it would be. Instead of constantly being accused of having evil motives, I’d be presumed to have noble intentions no matter how much the actual content of my policy proposals was at odds with such claims. Instead of being accused of saying bad things I never said, I’d be given credit for supporting good things I’ve never supported. Life would be great! OK, I’m whining. But the continuing defense of Paul Ryan is a remarkable phenomenon. He’s still being treated by many pundits as a man deeply concerned about deficits, when the fact is that his policy proposals are all about redistributing income upward, and make no serious effort to curb debt. He’s even given credit for advocating higher taxes on the rich when he has more or less specifically rejected the things for which he’s given credit.
Redistributing income upward? That is funny, I do not seem to recall Ryan calling for such a thing at all. Of course, I do not live in the alternate reality that Krugman does. Krugman thinks that we can spend our way out of a crisis caused by grotesque OVERspending! He also believes that we ought to be taxing the “rich” to redistribute wealth in classic Socialist fashion. This type of disconnect from reality is amazing to witness. Krugman has numerous historical examples to look at. He even has Europe, in a sorry state financially to look at. And yet, Krugman can do no better than call for not just a continuance of the policies that got us here, but an ACCELERATION of those policies.
Do-gooders in the government are quick to pat themselves on the back for their generosity with other people’s money. Of course, each promise they make, each handout they give, comes with strings attached. They’ll pay the rent, but only if you live where they say. They’ll buy the groceries, but only if you eat what they allow. They’ll pay the medical bills, but only if you see the doctor they say and accept the limited treatments they provide.
In short, big-government types want one thing: your submission. And they’re wasting no time teaching the youngest Americans, that if they want theirhandouts, they too must submit to the state’s will.
How absolutely true. It is all a trade-off, you give up some liberty, some of your individualism, and they, the state, will give you something in return. The end result of such trading, of course, is that you cede your natural rights when you accept Marxism. And rights once surrendered are seldom recovered are they? Sooner or later, you realize that you are now nothing more than a slave, totally dependent upon the mercy of the state for all your needs.
MIT professor of linguistics Noam Chomsky warned the end is near. In an interview with the Nation magazine and On The Earth Productions earlier this month, Chomsky, known for his distinct left-of-center philosophy, commented on the emotion in the electorate.
“There’s other factors like the anger, and the fear and hostility in the country about everything carries over to this,” Chomsky said. “So if you look at polls, everyone hates Congress. They hate the Democrats. They hate the Republicans even more. They hate big business. They hate banks and they distrust scientists. So why should we believe what these pointy-head elitist are telling? We don’t trust anything else. We don’t trust them.”
He explained those feelings led to November’s election results, and would have serious repercussions for civilization.
“All of this combines the latest election a couple of days ago,” he continued. “You could almost interpret it a kind of a death knell for the species. There was an article in Bloomberg BusinessWeek, you know – not a radical rag exactly. They’re running through the new Republicans coming to Congress and they’re worried about them.”
The knee-jerk PC continues to get comically out of hand:
CNN’s John King: “Before we go to break, I want to make a quick point. We were having a discussion about the Chicago mayoral race. My friend Andy Shaw used the term ‘in the crosshairs’ in talking about the candidates. We’re trying, we’re trying to get away from that language. Andy is a good friend, he’s covered politics for a long time, but we’re trying to get away from that kind of language.”
Video of John King apologizing as if his guest had just denied the holocaust or used a racial slur ishere.
This is a possible consequence of the Left and the media screaming about vitriol and violent rhetoric. How long till we start spelling words? Come on America!
And y’all wonder why I call the Daily Kos Kids Kooky? Lots more at the link but just consider this bit of lunacy! And yes,m we do have today’s Marxist Morons!
Blogger Kevin Tully is really angry about the election returns and wondered if “all of us, [are] being played like one huge, oxygen starved, exhausted, gullible fish? Is the destruction of the environment and civil society absolutely necessary to maintain the “American Dream?” He suggested on Thursday that the American Dream is a deadly disease we spread globally:
The “American Dream” is a worldwide viral phenomenon – with many more potentially dire consequences than AIDS or Avian Flu. We have exported this thing from one end of the earth to the other – it’s like the gifted puppy that can never be housetrained, it grows up, still, so cute and familiar – your proud of your gift, it craps on the floor and tears down the curtains – it’s [sic] new owners overlook the crap; the dog is so cute – however, you can’t get over the crap and torn curtains when you visit.
This past weeks [sic] election was a referendum on the puppy. The rhetoric and the outcome were very predictable: The folks that are still very proud of the puppy were very persuasive and voted, most of us other folks – stayed home.
