Thomas Sowell deconstructs Obama and the left’s bullshit

I love Thomas Sowell. This man gets economics and the way the real world works. So as soon as I heard he had a new article discussing the stupidity of another Obama “You didn’t build that” and “Pay your fair share you evil capitalists” moment, I had to go check it out. As usual, Thomas Sowell cleans the floor with the stupid shit liberals say> Here’s an excerpt:

In a recent panel discussion on poverty at Georgetown University, President Barack Obama gave another demonstration of his mastery of rhetoric — and disregard of reality.

One of the ways of fighting poverty, he proposed, was to “ask from society’s lottery winners” that they make a “modest investment” in government programs to help the poor.

Since free speech is guaranteed to everyone by the First Amendment to the Constitution, there is nothing to prevent anybody from asking anything from anybody else. But the federal government does not just “ask” for money. It takes the money it wants in taxes, usually before the people who have earned it see their paychecks.

Despite pious rhetoric on the left about “asking” the more fortunate for more money, the government does not “ask” anything. It seizes what it wants by force. If you don’t pay up, it can take not only your paycheck, it can seize your bank account, put a lien on your home and/or put you in federal prison.

So please don’t insult our intelligence by talking piously about “asking.”

And please don’t call the government’s pouring trillions of tax dollars down a bottomless pit “investment.” Remember the soaring words from Barack Obama, in his early days in the White House, about “investing in the industries of the future”? After Solyndra and other companies in which he “invested” the taxpayers’ money went bankrupt, we haven’t heard those soaring words so much.

Then there are those who produced the wealth that politicians want to grab. In Obama’s rhetoric, these producers are called “society’s lottery winners.”

Was Bill Gates a lottery winner? Or did he produce and sell a computer operating system that allows billions of people around the world to use computers, without knowing anything about the inner workings of this complex technology?

Was Henry Ford a lottery winner? Or did he revolutionize the production of automobiles, bringing the price down to the point where cars were no longer luxuries of the rich but vehicles that millions of ordinary people could afford, greatly expanding the scope of their lives?

Most people who want to redistribute wealth don’t want to talk about how that wealth was produced in the first place. They just want “the rich” to pay their undefined “fair share” of taxes. This “fair share” must remain undefined because all it really means is “more.”

Once you have defined it — whether at 30 percent, 60 percent or 90 percent — you wouldn’t be able to come back for more.

Obama goes further than other income redistributionists. “You didn’t build that!” he declared to those who did. Why? Because those who created additions to the world’s wealth used government-built roads or other government-provided services to market their products.

And who paid for those roads and other government-provided services if not the taxpayers? Since all other taxpayers, as well as non-taxpayers, also use government facilities, why are those who created private wealth not to use them also, since they are taxpayers as well?

The fact that most of the rhetorical ploys used by Barack Obama and other redistributionists will not stand up under scrutiny means very little politically. After all, how many people who come out of our schools and colleges today are capable of critical scrutiny?

And that’s the point though, isn’t it? You target envious low information voters with a head full of leftist mush for support to give pretense to robbing the productive, all while stealing tons of that money, under the pretense of helping those less well off. Now if we had anything like a honest media, they would point out how much money these class warriors bag while peddling this liberal nonsense, no matter what the medium chosen to gain acceptance of thing sane people would never go with, while selling the snake oil.

What is missing from this revelation?

Yesterday I had a post about how a communication by the NAVY Sec Mabus clearly showed that the military was about to lower standards for access into some of the most demanding and dangerous combat specialties due to the demands from the PC political class. Today we have a revelation form retired Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis about how horrible the current US foreign policy landscape looks.

Because the United States lacks a global strategy, “volatility is going to get to the point that chaos threatens,” a former Central Command (CENTCOM) commander told a Heritage Foundation audience Wednesday.

Speaking in Washington, D.C., retired Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis said, “the perception is we’re pulling back” on America’s commitment to its allies and partners, leaving them adrift in a changing world. “We have strategic atrophy.”

Again the missing item here is what? I am not even gonna bother with a long lead up and just point out that the elephant in the room is that the idiots that were going to stop the rise of the oceans, heal the rift that warmonger devil Boosh caused with his cowboyism between us and every civilized nation on the planet, and show the world that the dog that rolls over and exposes it’s neck and belly to the aggressors would garner their sympathy and get them to stand down.

Yes, this for me is an opportunity to again point out that I told you so. In my wildest nightmares I couldn’t think anyone would do more harm than Carter did, but Team Obama has usurped that title with panache and certainty. People forgot how dismal democrats are at anything that has to do with the real world, and it reflects, not just in the current economic and political climate at home, but in our foreign policy and the disasters of the last 6 years, as well. I wonder if that Nobel Peace Committee has thought about asking Obama to return the prize they gave him to spite Boosh? I am certain that all the other idiots around the globe that rooted for an Obama win – with the exception of the ones in countries such as China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela amongst a long list of rogue nations that were salivating at the chops for another weak ass in chief – and the subsequent “maturity” in the new US foreign policy are kicking themselves these days.

Our enemies get treated like a hooker afraid of pissing off her pimp, while our friends get treated like the hooker by her pimp. It’s a shame and a travesty. The world is now a more dangerous place because the supposed adults have been in charge and have done a “reset”. The consequences of having these in charge will be felt for a long time, and we have not yet seen the worst of it.

So the Politicians still actively at it

An ongoing debate in the military community is that despite all the wishful thinking by the PC desk jockeys in DC, reality has been a harsh mistress. General physical requirements for women already differ from those that men must qualify for, and without exclusion the requirement for females is far lower than that for males. I will not bore you with the logic that was used to get this to pass. Basically the argument has always been that while physical strength will matter on the battlefield, non-combat jobs shouldn’t have the same restrictions. The problem some have pointed out is that on the modern battlefield all jobs tend to, at one point or another, end up as combat jobs. Someone less qualified, because of lower physical standards, not only runs the risk of performing poorly when that happens, getting themselves killed in the process, but actually costing others their lives. I remain ambivalent about women in non-combat military jobs, but I detest the fact that we can’t have either an honest discussion or get the military to accurately report the facts. That ship has already sailed, and we now must live with what is.

The problem is that the SJW types still demand more, because as things stand right now their argument that there is no difference between men and women is easily disputed based on facts. For decades now the political class has been demanding women be given access to combat billing in the military that have remained exclusively male. It should be no surprise that these billets usually are highly specialized combat infantry billets with extremely demanding physical requirements. Amongst the billets that the PC Police has targeted to push their agenda to prove that there is absolutely no difference between men and women are the Marine Infantry Officer program, NAVY SEAL program, the Army Ranger/Delta Force programs, and the Air Force Special Operations program. These programs have actively resisted lowering standards for anyone because lives would be lost. So far not a single female to try out has succeeded in passing the rigorous and demanding physical part of any of these programs, and the reason is simple biology.

But the SJW types remain undeterred in their quest to be able to say they were right, so this announcement by Navy Secretary Mabus should come as no surprise. Here is a snippet, emphasis mine:

Fair fitness standards,/b>, less online training, more educational opportunities and a better balance of work and family life. Those hot button issues for sailors and Marines are now at the forefront of a new campaign by the Navy’s top civilian to boost quality of life and recruit more women into the ranks.

Navy Secretary Ray Mabus is set to unveil a host of far-reaching initiatives and policy changes Wednesday, aimed at improving quality of life and careers for sailors and Marines, many which came directly from the deckplates, a senior Navy official has confirmed to Navy Times.

Mabus plans to to ease body fat restrictions, boost career flexibility, andpush to recruit more women in the Navy and Marine Corps, while opening up the last billets that remain closed to them.

The initiatives have been in the works for some time. Mabus has publicly voiced support for increasing the number of women and the jobs open to them, while Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. Bill Moran’s office has been collecting fleet feedback on everything from revamping Navy Knowledge Online and the PFA to beefing up education and civilian training opportunities. Mabus is also expected to highlight recent moves to accelerate promotions for top performing corporals.

So there you have it: physical standards will again be reduced because “fairness”. My bet is, barring a reduction for show purposes, that they will only be reduced for one gender. I doubt the SEALs or the Marines will be happy to go along with any of this crap. SJW will not care who loses their lives as long as they get to pretend the dumb shit they believe is true however.

For those not in the know, this is being coupled with early promotions if you have the right plumbing. To me, that line about early promotions of corporals, which means Marine Corps enlisted females, since there are no corporals in the NAVY, basically means they are running the risk that they will promote people that might not have had enough time to be prepared. That’s neither fair for those people promoted or those that could suffer from this bad choice.

Women belong in the military. Many have served and will serve with distinction. However, just like no one bats an eye when some programs wash out overweight, physically unqualified, or mentally lacking men, nobody should be surprised that without compromising standards women will not make it into these elite combat forces. It’s simple biology, and no amount of mental fortitude will overcome the physical reality that there is a difference between the sexes. Meddling by inept people that have not served a day in the military or worse, don’t give a shit who gets hurt by their political agenda, however, might just make that happen. And we will all lose when that does happen.

The left is not just permeated by stupid: it has a lot of evil too

Real life has been kicking my rear end and I have been busier than a one legged man at an ass kicking contest. That has limited my participation here as of recent. There has been a lot going on these days and I figure that I should drag up an oldie but goody that explains all the “bad luck” the last 6 years of “Progressive Libertopia” have been causing us. One of my favorite reality checks is the interview Yuri Bezmenov, as Soviet Defector, gave back in 1984 to G. Edward Griffin. Listen carefully to what he talks about and note the parallel with the shit we have been going through for the last 6 or so years.

Now contrast that with all the crap in the news today. The left, in these last 6 years, most of it with them controlling the levers of power exclusively, has gone beyond my wildest fantasies and predictions of idiotic crap and destructiveness, and it shows. When the idiotic shit they believe in and practice fails miserably, it’s everyone else’s fault. They are pissed people are focusing and pointing out that the facts don’t back up their narrative, and it shows. That’s why we had the kangaroo court proceedings and scandal after scandal – all ignored by a complicit and compliant media – exposed as such, be explained away as nothing important, or even more baffling, as falsehoods perpetrated by people with the facts.

Lies, lies, and more lies!

They don’t even realize the parody of their own making. You can’t make up this level of stupid. And no, it isn’t incompetence – even though there is so much of that going around by default when credentialed leftist elite morons are involved – but all by design as that interview with Yuri, over 30 years ago, clearly illustrates. The old Soviets must kick themselves daily when they see that hanging on just another 2 or 3 decades would have given them complete victory due to all the useful idiots looking for free shit that permeate our crumbling society today.

I would not be surprised..

That Iran’s claim that the desperate pussies in the Obama administration are again acting like the pussies collectivist tend to always be, and then for clearly craven political reasons, is absolutely true. This administration is going to eventually be seen, when the historians finally actually get to look at the things they did, as one of the biggest failures ever. No amount of revisionist history, media cover for their fellow collectivists, or even sycophantic pandering by people willing to line up and suck Obama cock, just because of their “My Team,” feelings, will change that reality. They are desperate for something – anything – to show they are not the abject failures they are. Hence the constant stupidity and the dangerous display of absolute incompetence and weakness that leads to things like this. yeah, I bet they are begging Iran for a bone. Any bone.

I am going to rub it in. Back when the fucking leftards were telling us all how stupid Boosh’s cowboy diplomacy was and that what we needed was mature and capable collectivists to take over to fix things, I pointed out this was all bullshit. Leftards suck at foreign policy precisely because they hold such a high opinion of themselves that they believe they can do not just the improbable, but the impossible. Most people don’t remember the incompetence of the Carter years. Carter thought his good intentions and his willingness to do what feelers on the left think is the right thing would garner him the support of people not just with their own agenda, but of evil people. That’s why he was so butt-hurt when the Russians went into Afghanistan. Brezhnev had after all promised him that the USSR wouldn’t do that! Carter was a moron. And the bulk of people that share his idiotic and naive beliefs – which pretty much amounts to all collectivists and the democratic party as a singular entity these days – world view are always going to not only be surprised by the wolves in sheep’s clothing, but end up on the short end of any deal. Always.

Obama however has been far worse than Carter was. His administration has not only been more than willing to drop to their knees to suck the cocks of people that are clearly our enemies, but they have treated our allies, especially those that were considered our closest ones, with scorn and disdain on top of that. I have said it before and will say it again: At the risk of insulting amateurs, this administration’s foreign policy, and for that matter anything else other than their agenda to destroy the country, is amateur hour at the freak show. Not that these idiots will ever get called on it until long from now when historian take a look at the shit that went down and the damage it has caused will we finally understand how bad they were/are.

Gas prices, the ppb of oil, and the future

I filled up my car today and paid $2.11 a gallon here in The People’s Republic of Connecticut. In some other parts of the nation that don’t have ridiculously high government imposed gas taxes – taxes that they claim they will use to fix the crumbling infrastructure and ill maintained infrastructure they have held tenure over, but somehow always end up in the general fund where they then get spent on vote buying social pet projects – this number is now below $2 a gallon. The last time I remember oil under $2 a gallon was a decade ago. But why is this happening? There are a ton of varying opinions about cause and effect out there. Let’s explore.

First off, the obligatory democrats are always talking out of their ass reference. They knew they were full of shit, we knew it, and because despite every and all efforts by the Obama administration failing to hinder the expansion of US oil recovery, we got more drilling, we now have definite proof. Collectivist Keynesian shitbags can pretend that the economic laws of supply and demand don’t matter – like they do with the reality of human nature and a lot of other natural laws – but reality has a way of bitch-slapping stupid people. You fuckers knew you were lying when you were pretending more oil on the market would not reduce prices, and we now have proven it. The opposition to any more drilling and recovery was primarily because these Marxists fucks want to destroy the brown energy industry to favor their friends, and coincidentally another one of their special interest big donor blocks, in the proven failed green industry.

Back to business now that we have gotten that out of the way. This precipitous price drop, even though I believe it will not remain that low forever (more about that later), is bound to jump start our economy and help a lot of us that now will have extra pocket change. And it doesn’t come without the profiteers trying to screw over the tax payers yet again. The leftists, under the guise of getting more money to fix the very infrastructure they have been neglecting for decades, precisely because they were diverting gas tax dollars to social pet projects, are putting pressure on everyone to get more money from people that are finally getting a much needed and deserved break in the though economic times the leftists have given us.

As if this time the bulk of this extra revenue wouldn’t actually also be diverted to vote buying projects they depend on. Yeah, and pigs will fly too. These assholes count on people’s stupidity and envy. Think about how these will impact us all once prices climb again – and they will. Let us also note that this money grab is not limited to the feds. Many state governments, especially the ones run by democrats that do the same as the feds (like mine), are all hoping to follow that example and do the same. Can’t have people keeping more of their money when they need to buy votes in these desperate times that their base consists of so many of the non-productive. It is almost as if these people’s decision making is based on what can do the most economic harm possible. Of course, when you already believe the money doesn’t belong to the people earning it in the first place, you tend to not bother with these stupid details anyway.

Now that we have gotten that nasty business out of the way, let’s discuss why the prices are dropping as precipitously and fast as they are. The general consensus is that the Saudis are doing this, and it is on purpose. The Saudis, OPEC’s biggest producers, have decided not to cut their output to regulate prices, and are counting on their over $800 billion in reserves to ride out this shorting of the market. The move to let the oil prices plummet is basically driven by their calculated belief that if the price goes too low it will force fledgling the US oil industry, especially the fracking industry that the Russians had been directly targeting without much success so far, I add, to collapse.

The Saudis, like most of the other OPEC nations and Russia, all need oil to be at between $90 and $100 a barrel to keep their current economic plans viable. The supply produced by the US has basically made that impossible, because the extra oil was sooner than later going to force a correction that would drop prices and keep them between $65 to $75 per barrel. And while that drop is something that would be an economic boon to most of the world that depends on oil for energy, it would spell a slow economic death for the oil producing nations that need/want the higher prices. Have no doubt that this move is a calculated attack on the US oil industry. The Saudis are counting that if they keep the prices below $50 a barrel for a while that they can drive the US out of the oil producing. Even more important is their belief that the greens will then prevent that oil producing industry from coming back for decades. This gamble that the greens will prevent the oil production from starting right back up again is based on their observation of how things played out in the 70s, and while many believe that this time it will not work, I think that their gamble isn’t all that crazy. The greens, after all, want to destroy the brown energy sector and don’t give two flying fucks how costly and destructive their agenda is, because in the end it is about them lining their pockets above all else. Most of the big actors have become stinking rich fucking us all over.

The fact is that this economic boon they will usher in and the low gas prices themselves can’t last as the demand and supply curve correct themselves eventually. But then again, we can make some economic moves that will preposition us to come out of this attack against our economy and economic interests, as the winners. The fact is that anything that keeps the price of oil lower than the $90 to $100 per barrel that the actors behind this attack want is a good thing. Lower prices would be a huge hit that forces some of the world’s shittiest nations to change their ways, for lack of funds to cause trouble with, to at a minimum do less harmful things. That would be a big bonus for the world in general. Of course I doubt this administration and the collectivists that are in league with the greens have any desire to do so, and they will actually do things that will undermine that possibility. We need to make sure we push back and prevent them from doing that. Cheap energy is exactly what the world needs right now, just like it needs a lot less big intrusive Keynesian nanny-state government.

In the mean time enjoy this gift for as long as it is allowed to last by the people that want to control us serfs.

Deja Vu of collectivist stupidity

I admit I didn’t even bother watching the freak show, because I figured it was going to be more of the same, and I was not disappointed. From what I have read and seen now, I can tell that the man is just full of shit, talks out of both sides of his mouth, has a forked tongue, again showed why he is a narcissistic a-hole, by peddling the same trope the left has been peddling for decades: envy and jealousy. Pathetic.

The Washington Times points out that he calls for civility, then taunts. What’s new about that? I mean this has been the guy for 7 years. The Weekly Standard points out that in typical democrat fashion Obama attacks campaign donations, then proceeds to ask for them. The fact that these people that cry the loudest about the evils of donations – but specifically donations to their opponents – isn’t either new or news. These are after all the people that usually want to ban corporate money but see no problem with union money. They are also the people that denigrate and attack the rich, but get the most money from them and as the last 7 years show. do the things that make those rich people richer. The Washington Times also points out that in typical petulant child fashion, Obama managed to tell those evil republicans that just won the last electoral cycle with massive popular support that he was going to take his ball home if they didn’t let him win the game. This has been president “I won”, after all, and by now everyone should know that when they talk about working together or bipartisan efforts, democrats always mean “do what I want”.

This thing was such a snooze fest of the usual collectivist trope that even Ruth Bader Ginsburg seems to have nodded off. There were some highlights though. The Examiner points out that while Obama touted the left’s “War on Womenz” meme and again talked about the pay disparity, that the misleading and false statistics they usually use to back their cherry picking up was not repeated this time. Maybe this had something to do with that. Obama had so much good to say about our clearly broken secondary education system, but that is because, as Glen H. Reynolds has pointed out repeatedly, these institutions are one of the collectivist’s biggest donor blocks.

Fox News does a good job explaining what we saw, and that was that after this last electoral cycle’s shellacking, Obama went back to the usual democrat talking points. More class warfare – preying on the envious and the jealous works – and more taxing the productive and spending to buy votes from those that vote for a living, because that serves the country so well. Basically we got another “Give me your votes and I will give you free shit” donkey speech. Old and tired shit. If you like me just parodied what you expected an old collectivist twit would say and then watched something else, you didn’t miss much and were probably dead on.

Obama has managed to make my predictions that democrats in power would by their very actions sooner than later make sane people realize they are nothing but snake oil salesmen robbing Peter to pay Paul, while bagging a huge chunk of that change, back when everyone was talking about evil rethuglicans and Boosh, come true, and then without a shadow of doubt. I would love to rub it in people’s faces, but then again, when I look at the path of destruction these crooks have left in their wake, I don’t find much pleasure even in that.

When you suck, double down on what makes you suck.

The once victorious left is getting its ass handed to it after showing the world how fucked up the shit they believe in is in practice in just a short 6 year span. Oh don’t get me wrong. The LSM has tried real hard to hide the damage being caused, but it has failed. Who still believes anything done by this administration fixed anything? I mean, we have had the LSM telling us for 6 years now how the recession was over and things were getting better. Sure, if you are one of the people that votes for a living or an ultra rich lib connected to this administration, you have made out real well – at the expense of future generations that will now have to pay for that deficit spending – but if you are middle class, you have been shafted by these crooks and know better. If there have been economic boons, it has been despite anything done by the Obama administration and the left.

Take energy for example. The US is now producing and exporting more oil than ever, and it has had an incredible impact on that racket. As a result of that the oil prices the democrats spent years telling us would remain unaffected by anything that would increase oils supply – such as more drilling in the US, fracking and shale oil recovery, Xcel pipeline, you name it – have plummeted, giving most Americans a needed break. Don’t worry though, because democrats in DC are already talking about increasing the taxes on gasoline. Their reasoning is that since the infrastructure is falling apart higher taxes can address it. Of course, the fact that what they collect is misappropriated and misspent disproves this nonsense. This drilling, fracking, and any effort related to increased oil production has happened despite an anti fossil fuel agenda by the left. Let me remind you of the billions these fucks pissed away on green bullshit, Obama’s efforts to destroy the coal industry, and the fact that they admit they want high energy prices so people are forced to give up comfort, convenience, and even basic needs to live like the leftist twits believe us peons should. There must be a god above that has not only allowed us to overcome this nefarious activity, but has shown without any doubt, that the left is inimical to energy and growth.

There are other things that they have done that are downright destructive despite any claims to the contrary. There has constantly been talk, and it has been lots of talk and very little action, about fixing the economy and creating jobs. But what has been done serves only to further the left’s political agenda at the expense of us people. Exhibit A- Obamacare has been a disaster and promises to cause incalculable damage, so much so, that democrats are running from it. It was passed by a clique with an agenda, in secrecy, based on a campaign of obfuscation and lies that mirror a cheap soap opera, pretending to want to help people and lower costs, while really basically implementing a debacle that has as its end goal the destruction of the American healthcare system so the left can finally implement their despicable single payer solution. The real damage this thing will cause is yet to come.

The left and their lackeys in the LSM have spent a lot of effort and time trying to tell us that all the part-time and McJobs created by the supposed recovery they seem to be the only ones to see – one that has also been labeled a jobless recovery in contradiction to their claims of job creation if things are not confusing enough– are good things for showcasing the left’s economic agenda. Of course we don’t heart a lot about jobs these days with the democratic party’s agenda of rewarding millions of law breaking illegals not just with legitimacy in the US, but with benefits paid for by the productive in return for votes. The truth is however that sucking at the government’s teat pays better than work in the age of Obama, and that’s the left’s legacy. They buy votes at the expense of the productive and the nations’ future. When you have so many people that believe they are owed just for existing and that work is for chumps, you are doomed. Of course, this is what the left lives off: it’s not an accidental by product, but what they need to keep their hold on power.

I can go on and on about economic damage. From the Dodd-Frank 2000 page behemoth and the fact that the fundamental and underlying problem – that government is in bed with lenders so they can buy favors from people that never should qualify for loans with the tax payer left holding the bag when the shit hits the fan as it has to – which Obama is about to do away with, to the IRS being used to target political enemies of the nanny state and the left, these criminals have undermined our nation and economy. Trillions are pissed away buying votes from a plethora of programs which primarily serve to bolster the lefts hold on power and on us peons. I stress again that any positive we have seen has happened despite their actions and agenda, and is a sign of the resiliency and strength of the American people. But the damage goes beyond the economic.

The class warriors are constantly decrying the affair of things. The world is unfair – that’s true – and they will fix it! That last one is plain bullshit and a despicable lie. They will fix nothing at all, and anything they tell you they plan to do should immediately be suspect. Take for example the revelation about public school students living in poverty. This has happened because of leftist policies. Public schools have seen an exodus of anyone that could do it because 5 decades of liberal control have devastated the system.

Education has been dumbed down and turned into nothing more than liberal indoctrination writ large. Students no longer are expected to perform and the important stuff has been replaced with liberal feel good bullshit, making the whole thing an exercise in futility. Consequently, the only people left- especially in the most broken public schools system which are predominantly in urban areas – are those that can’t afford to go elsewhere. The narcissistic leftards will claim we don’t spend enough on education, but that’s bullshit. More money, which is always their answer will do nothing to address the fact that teaching in most public schools is sub par because of the emphasis on the left’s indoctrination agenda over education.

And our problem with education isn’t restricted to our public school system. Our higher education system is also suffering from the very same problem. What once was considered a hallmark of future success, a college education, today amounts to nothing more than a license to ask people if they want fries with that. The old concept of a classical education – a means to teach people to think and solve problems – has been replaced with liberal indoctrination of low end value that despite the exorbitant cost leaves the candidates woefully unprepared to do anything other than ask people if they would like fries with that. How many social, womenz, or other bullshit studies degrees does a workforce need, huh? How many teaching jobs are out there to justify all the people with history, literature, or other such specialized degrees that might emphasize their passions, but leave little room to make a living? How smart is going into debt, to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars, for a degree that won’t guarantee you a better employment opportunity or the ability to earn enough to live and pay back what you borrowed?

The left, which profits from the existing broken system, doesn’t want to make colleges responsible for the money these institutions so freely pass out to people they know might not ever graduate or be able to pay it back with the degree they are pursuing, or to fix things so the educational value is there. The same applies to the public education system: anything that undermines their indoctrination agenda is DOA. Agenda over substance or results.

I remember when it was the religious right that was accused of wanting to legislate their morality. Today the intolerant left is straddling us with things ranging from speech codes to detailed rules about sexual behavior at college. The range of abuses of power, culminating in the record setting decline of the last 7 years, are so deep and broad that I would need weeks and hundreds of pages to just briefly touch upon them. In short, the left has spent but 6 years doing what it does to squander any and all support it had from those that were not already beholden special interests, and even amongst those, there has been a drastic erosion of support.

Queue the reason for this long post: the coming state of the union and the fact that the left is going to go back to the tried and true class, race, gender, and other envy and jealousy based tropes that coalesce its base, and Obama trying real hard to pass himself off as a man of the people by playing Robin Hood. Let me remind all of you that Robin Hood didn’t fight the rich: he fought corrupt and abusive government. He fought a government that taxed excessively and then to return what was stolen to its rightful owner. There was no wealth transfer scheme at play there. If you want a more apt comparison of Obama and what the left are up to, look towards the old USSR. That’s what they are basically doing. There is no nobility or good at work here. It is all about power and counting on the basest and vilest of human emotions – jealousy and envy – to manipulate sheep. Pay careful attention to what has really happened as democrats got to do what they wanted before you let them fool you yet again. Democrats are about rewarding bad behavior and punishing good ones, because they count on people being children for them to get and keep power.

This move is desperation at work. It’s so they can cry foul and blame the republicans when this goes nowhere in congress. Fuck the left.

One step closer to the revelation that the orders came from the WH

So now we have a Forbes article titled “Obama Justice Department Was Involved In IRS Targeting, Lerner Emails Reveal” which leaves no doubt that Eric Holder’s DOJ, which has been tasked with investigating the connection to the WH of all things, was part of the IRS scheme to attack political enemies of the left:

Sadly, the 18 month investigation into the IRS targeting of conservative groups isn’t over, and it may be worse than anyone thought. A federal judge has broken loose more emails that the DOJ had surely hoped would never surface. The picture it reveals isn’t pretty. The documents prove that Lois Lerner met with DOJ’s Election Crimes Division a month before the 2010 elections.

It has to be embarrassing to the DOJ, which may not be the most impartial one to be investigating the IRS. In fact, the DOJ withheld over 800 pages of Lerner documents citing “taxpayer privacy” and “deliberative privilege.” Yet these internal DOJ documents show Ms. Lerner was talking to DOJ officials about prosecuting tax-exempt entities (yes, criminally!) two years before the IRS conceded there was inappropriate targeting.

Ms. Lerner met with top officials from the DOJ’s Election Crimes Branch in October of 2010. Although Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the DOJ (Judicial Watch v. Department of Justice, No. 14-cv-01239), the DOJ coughed up dirt only on court order. Even then, the DOJ handed over only two pages of heavily redacted emails.

What’s more, the DOJ withheld 832 pages in their entirety. They revealed that Mr. Obama’s DOJ called an October 8, 2010 meeting with the IRS “concerning 501(c)(4) issues.” On September 30, 2010, the DOJ’s Election Crimes prosecutor emailed Ms. Lerner:

“Hi Lois-It’s been a long time, and you might not remember me, I’ve taken on [REDACTED] duties. I’m looking forward to meeting you, Can we chat in advance? I’m a [REDACTED]“

Ms. Lerner responded on October 2, 2010:

“Sure-that’s a good Idea [sic]. I have a meeting out of the office Monday morning, but will try you when I get back sometime early afternoon. You can try me at 202 283-8848.”

Documents from a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the IRS show that Ms. Lerner asked the DOJ whether tax-exempt entities could be criminally prosecuted.

Heh, that faux scandal Obama told us this was sure looks real to me, and the reason why Lerner has avoided testifying now absolutely makes sense. Of course, I am not surprised to find out she sought legal advice from the DOJ on how to abuse power. Considering that this DOJ’s primary function has been to attack the enemies of the Obama administration, coordinate criminal and illegal acts with other government agencies- such as gun running schemes to undermine support for the 2nd Amendment (Fast & Furious) or telling the EPA to usurp the power of congress when congress couldn’t pass some job killing special interest helping bullshit, for example – and to foster every and all sort of racial or sexist bullshit story that would help the democrats divert attention from their abysmal economic record, I suspect there is a lot more bad shit to be found out still.

In the end the facts will come out and we will have verification that the orders and coordination came from the WH. I don’t doubt that. These are criminals in charge of things these days after all, and criminals will commit crimes. The sad part is that they still feel they are going to get away with the crimes and are eager to commit more of them. This is what the most transparent administration evah! has amounted to. Shit, they went far beyond my wildest predictions. Of course, the Obamanauts will tell you they meant well and evil Boosh!, so there. Can you imagine the response if a republican was doing what these people are doing from the left ad the media? Fucking idiots.

I call BULLLSHIT cubed

So as Gruber shows his sorry ass up in congress to speak truth to power, it looks like the strategy adopted by the scumbags that straddled us with Obamacare after a massive campaign of disinformation, lies, and falsehoods, is to pretend that Gruber was telling the lies when nothing could be further from the truth. I guess the progressives have chosen to save face and hide their abuse of power and criminal behavior by accusing the scumbag that was making fun of the American people by pointing out what progressives think of US tax payers of doing the lying. The American people have not been fooled, and they have voted accordingly.

This bait and switch shit that these democrats are now engaged in is classic. Man does the number of unlucky people thrown under that Obamacare bus keeps rising. Landrieu got fried the other day for and I am sure it was a response of her selling her Obamacare vote. The usual lefty moonbats are now actually saying she lost because she didn’t go left enough, which is just more of the same nonsense as Cummings pretending that Gruber was lying about how the demcorats lied to pass Obamacare. Remember that Obamacare was passed on a purely partisan vote that required major payoffs because that thing was exactly the disaster we have now waiting to happen.

While you watch the freak show unfolding in Congress, remember that every one of these democrats that pushed that abomination on us and are now acting all butt hurt and indignant, then told us we had to pass it to see what was in it. Don’t fall for the attempt to do damage control by acting indignant and the accusations that Gruber was doing anything other than pointing out what they all did. Fuck the lot of them.
