Slaves to the Government and Proud of It

I originally saw this on Drudge, but it has been popping up in other places.  It is amazing.

The original DNC video was trying to analogize government to club membership. But what is extremely disconcerting is that the rank-n-file Democrats at the convention accept – no embrace – the concept that the government “owns” them.  It is clear in this video montage.

I was especially horrified to see African-Americans embracing this idea. Blacks of all people should collectively reject the idea of being owned by another person or agency.

The majority of blacks in this country are church-goers and are good godly people. So when the Democratic leadership pulls God out of the platform we should expect to hear a loud outcry. But largely there was silence except from the right and pundants who warned of impending doom.

Fearing the pundants were correct is the only reason the leadership changed the platform. Surely another amateurish miscalculation from DWS, Pelosi, Reid, and Dear Leader.

I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when they decided to remove God and Jerusalem from the platform. You can almost hear the condescending voices argue that Blacks and Jews will vote for us regardless.  Afterall they must believe, “We own them.”

Apparently, there may be more truth to that than I could have ever imagined.

Obama believes he can’t be wrong

By Herman Cain

President Obama says very strange things, especially for a guy who presumably wants very badly to be re-elected. As if it wasn’t enough that he last week went off on small business owners for having pride in their accomplishments, this week he actually told a rally audience in reference to the economy – with a straight face – “We tried our plan, and it worked.”

It almost seems gratuitous to start citing all the numbers that obliterate this claim – the 8.2 percent unemployment, the anemic 1.5 percent GDP growth this past quarter, the soaring federal deficit that will top $1 trillion yet again this year. It’s like when the head coach of a 1-15 NFL team tries to make the case that his team is really good. Why sit there and debate him? You just nod your head and think to yourself, “Whatever you say, Coach.” Continue reading

Climate change godfather admits to being an alarmist.

I can recall seeing a documentary in the late ’80s featuring James Lovelock and his Gaia theory. I thought then “new ager” and while interesting, I dismissed both him and his theory as a pile of hooey.

To get an idea about what Gaia theory is about, much of this thinking is the centerpiece of James Cameron’s movie “Avatar”. Not wanting to get too far into the weeds, lay on top of Gaia theory the story about foreign invaders (white descendants of European settlers) who steal the land from the indigenous people (American “Indians”) so they can pillage the land’s resources (Capitalism is evil) and you have the setting and agenda of that movie. Ok, back out of the weeds.

This past April, the month when Earth Day is observed, James Lovelock gave MSNBC an interview where he admitted his claims regarding climate change was “alarmist”. Lovelock is regarded as “The godfather of global warming” and now, 20 odd years later he says

“the problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago.”

I wonder if Al Gore, a snake oil salesman if ever there was one, spewed his morning coffee when he read this.

Doh!
