Close the Gates!

What do you do when your intended victims catch on to your abusive behavior and attempt to flee? You close the gates, of course. Blame them for their own problems and then prevent their escape. Continue reading

On “Economic Patriotism” Hypocrisy

wealthy-ruining-americaPresident Obama dropped to a new level of hypocrisy* with his anti-capitalist rhetoric yesterday, calling for U.S.-based firms to entertain the notion of “economic patriotism”, which is liberal code for “shut up and bend over”. Let’s take a look at his words — and his staggering new level of hypocrisy — point by point. Continue reading

Survey Says: Obama Worst President Since WWII

king-obama

While the king has certainly not been dethroned by the recent Quinnipiac University survey revealing he’s reviled as the worst president since WWII, no doubt he has suffered a blow to his overinflated ego. If only we could inflate it so far as to make the man burst like a balloon and reduce his cumbersome ideology to finely torn shreds of rubber on the White House lawn. Continue reading

The Parable of Scott’s Tots

scott-tots

Awkward moments of pregnant silence, social clumsiness, and outrageous blundering comments uttered by Michael Scott will forever be hailed as the most hilarious moments of early 21st century television.  Some say that the series became a little too outrageous around the sixth season, and they may be right, but the show has bits of insightful social commentary if you dig deep enough.

Your complaints are (magically) ruining the economy

A recent Yahoo! “Finance” article written by Rick Newman states that if you’re complaining about the economy, you’re wrecking the economy.  Consider this little gem:

It’s easy to disregard what’s going right and highlight nothing but the challenges we face—which seems to be a lot of people’s preference. But gloom itself may now be a bigger economic problem than any of the traditional ones. There’s no bellyacher index I’m aware of, but if you read between the lines, there does seem to be growing evidence that we believe things are worse than they are—and maybe even want to believe that.

How to Survive a Government Shutdown

government-closed

Steel yourselves, fellow patriots!  The trumpets have sounded, the beast has been released from his underground lair, and people are mysteriously showing up with tattoos of triple-6’s pasted conspicuously on their foreheads.  The government, guardian of the underworld itself, has shut down and the gates to hell have opened, spewing their dungeoneering denizens into our atmosphere like the CO2 from Al Gore’s all-natural beef farm.

Obama’s Minimum Wage – A Lesson in How to Create Unemployment

"Nobody who works full-time in America should have to live in poverty. I'm going to keep on making the case and fighting for the fact that we need to raise our minimum wage, because right now it's in lower terms than it was when Ronald Reagan took office."

“Nobody who works full-time in America should have to live in poverty. I’m going to keep on making the case and fighting for the fact that we need to raise our minimum wage, because right now it’s in lower terms than it was when Ronald Reagan took office.”

Now that the media has once again successfully diverted national attention away from their messiah’s ever-growing list of “phony” scandals (including Benghazi, IRS, NSA, AP, and Fast & Furious — many of which are clear-cut signs of the oncoming police state that the ever-growing number of zombies in our nation fail to recognize), he has turned his sights to gun grabbing and the minimum wage (read his typical sycophantic remarks here).

Of course, his attempt to hike the minimum wage is merely another attempt to divert the national discussion, so I’ll be brief in debunking his theories that are once again heavy in ideology but light in facts. Continue reading

Obamacare – An Exercise in Unintended Consequences

jimmy-hoffa

“We have been strong supporters of the notion that all Americans should have access to quality, affordable health care. Now this vision has come back to haunt us.” – James Hoffa

I can’t help but smile in schadenfreudian pleasure as I disseminate the utterly shocking news that the very people who supported Obamacare are now deriding its pervasive regulations that incentivize businesses to mistreat the very employees it was meant to protect.  Consider the following:

  • Insurance plan costs will skyrocket
  • Employers have openly cut workers’ hours to avoid the mandate
  • Employees will find it increasingly difficult to keep their own plans (despite a strict promise otherwise)
  • Workers with employer-sponsored (or unionized) health coverage will not qualify for Obamacare subsidies

And we can’t forget that the bureaucracy that operates the DMV will now be managing our health care.  The fourth point is especially stinging to bloated union reps like James Hoffa, who are beginning to realize that the “Affordable Care Act” ultimately sterilizes the supposed effectiveness of unions (and isn’t so “affordable” after all).

The sheer ignorance is astounding, but not surprising — nor is it surprising that these same union leaders are now calling on Obama to “fix it”.  They have failed to come to the conclusion that the saner side of the populace came to back in 2009:  The ACA is Obama’s fix.  And we’re stuck with it now, including the unions who so viciously fought for its passage.

I have only one thing to say to these ignoramuses:  You’ve made your bed, now sleep in it.

And maybe we should consider the consequences of supporting bills based on their title rather than their content.

A Day in the Life of Steve, Enlightened Voter

steve-barista

Q: What does a liberal arts major in uniform say?
A: “Would you like fries with that?”

Steve starts his day by slipping out of bed and flicking on his iPod docking station.  His favorite “radio” personality delves deeper into the supposed scandal surrounding the harvesting of AP phone records and the audacity of the Republican war machine to stir up trouble in an attempt to undermine the current administration.  Dimly, he decides he wouldn’t mind if his phone records were obtained — after all, he has nothing to hide.

The Modern Liberal Part I – Reasonable Members

Confirmation Bias

Lately I’ve been thinking about the “liberal” agenda — the belief that ethics and morals can be legislated into existence via the means of a large and self-imposing government — and why people tend to cling to it regardless of its continually dismal results to achieve any of its intended goals.  I believe subscribers of big government tend to fall into two camps:  the vehemently malicious group, of which the likes of Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Eric Holder, Nancy Pelosi, and perhaps over half the general liberal populace are members; and the genuinely caring (albeit delusional) common-folk whose intents are well-placed but horribly misguided, of which many local politicians and a bit less than half of the general liberal populace could be labeled.
