Another myth about “The Party of the Little People” getting busted?

And it is about time. People are wizening to the fact the people ripping them off the hardest are those that have been claiming, for decades, to be on their side and they are not happy. It is not a mistake that when progressives grab power, the policies they put into place to redress the wrongs they constantly harp about, actually do the exact opposite of what they tell everyone they want to do. The last few years, with democrats controlling the purse stings and calling all the shots, after their policies were instrumental in creating a crisis they then conveniently blamed only the other side for, have been disastrous for everyone but the connected and those voting for a living.

The number of poor and people out of work and/or sucking on the government teat has grown drastically to numbers that are staggering. Our economy has taken a beating of epic proportions – while the people that set the policies up that caused the damage and keep causing the damage pretend it is everyone else’s fault- and looks to only get worse. Real unemployment numbers are hidden by a formula that discounts those that no longer get assistance or can’t find any work but part time work, and the numbers of people unable to find jobs or improve their existing conditions keep rising. Our healthcare system has been taken over by government, and from the looks of how government does things, we are all about to pay far, far more, for far, far less quality, access, or care. all while slamming both economic productivity and opportunity for all people. The middle class is under assault from a welfare state that punishes anyone that decides to engage in a responsible and grown up way, while rewarding every sort of dysfunction and of instant gratification. And anyone that tries to bring these things to light, defies them, or stands in their way, risks brutal retaliation from these members of the “Party of the little People”.

The lies that democrats, which claim to be just one of the normal people, but are anything but, are unraveling finally. If you want to get rich, you go into government. If you want to get stinking rich, get to fuck over people, and keep pretending you are just a little guy or care for the little guy while living like kings, you go into government as a democrat. Like communism, which promised the common man equality and opportunity previously denied, but then delivered him to unbelievable misery under a new and crueler set of masters, the progressive movement can only deliver more of the same. Nobody beats the democrats at abuse of power, corruption, and criminal activity. I think that for anyone that isn’t blinded by partisan politics the revelations of the current administration’s incessant criminality all but puts that debate to rest. But the believers want to believe, and nothing will dissuade them, even as the future with the left in charge is playing out on a micro scale for all to see.

So, queue in the Clintons and their recent defense of their wealthy and cushy life. This will be the Obamas in a few years. These are the great defenders of the common man. Now if only the idiots that suck these people’s dicks and ask for seconds could wizen up. We might yet have a chance to stave off the coming apocalypse caused by decades of these people “helping the little guy”. Beware the do-gooder, for they are usually charlatans, and be doubly weary of the true believer, because these type of fanatics are those that will bring the most misery thinking they are doing something righteous.

When it become OK to “HATE” and “BLAME” the rich..

Take a gander over here and read that article. Do that first. Read it twice.

So what did you come away with? Berlusconi is a sex maniac that gave away money to his interests at a time when the Italian government is in dire straights and Italians are being told they need to change things, right? Now whose money did he give away? My guess is that the way this is written it is implying that Berlusconi was wasting government money. The problem is they never say that outright. Berlusconi is a billionaire, and this money they say he gave away is peanuts in the grand scheme of things, especially if he was using his OWN money. And the scenario where the give away is of his own money is far more likely, since he would otherwise be facing criminal charges even in crazy Italy.

So, after a quick search of the Italian newspapers – with this English translation – one is left with the same impression: it was his money. There would be a criminal probe, not a scandal, otherwise.

The question begs to be asked why this story so agitates leftists in Italy and elsewhere. He isn’t using other people’s money, and he is actually doing stimulus. Is the problem that he is rich? Being wealthy has become a crime in the world. We are doomed.

Robert A. HeinleinThroughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as “bad luck.”
