The average “Republican American” is a Republican because that Party feeds a base wish to feel strong and independent.
No privilege; no advantage.
I’m your Republican neighbor; don’t you murder me
I’m your Republican neighbor and it’s clear to me
Someone who understands you and works you till your dead;
I’m your Republican neighbor; I can see you’re hurt
I never read Mr. R.’s letter but I don’t think I need to. I am consistently repulsed by the ramblings of one
“Conservative Hack” or another. Mr. R. is just one more Republican with a Calculator for a Conscience.
The real gem here is the response by Tony Wikrent to this “Wrong-Wing” lie. It stands alone as a statement of belief and philosophy
“I was distressed to read Mr. R.’s letter “Free Education” in the February 4, 2015 issue of The Caswell Messenger. It is one thing to espouse a philosophy of political economy that protects selfishness and the rich; it is altogether another thing, and entirely unacceptable, to claim that such a philosophy is moral, and was condoned by the Founders.
Over at the Blog of a friend of mine; a reader wrote to complain about some things that he said about Lyin’ Mitt Romney. My friend posted as follows:
“A reader of this blog accuses me of character assassination of Mitt Romney because I call Mitt out for his lies. You cannot be guilty of character assassination if the so-called victim lacks character. If Mitt will stop telling lies, I will stop calling him a liar. Until then, I will call them as I see them.”
Now this got me to thinking; and you all know how dangerous that can be.I thought particularly about the phrase: “If Mitt would stop telling lies”
I am just a bit weary of walking on eggshells every time I speak with a republican or about republicans. I’m tired of not saying what I think to be polite and not seem extreme.
I hate to generalize but I believe that the majority of republicans fit into one of the two types I describe so I will go ahead and risk the ire of the few who may not………..
I just know I’m going to Hell for publishing this. My only hope is that I can skate if I don’t identify this guy. So from here out we’ll just call him Steve.
Steve is a guy I met on another site; got into a discussion with; figured out that he was as deaf as a stone to what I was saying; and moved on. But Steve (that clever little scamp) followed me home like a Borellian Nomen on a “Blood Trail”
He took the tour and found my article on “The Effects of the Bush Tax Cuts”; and commented on it; sort of.
Anyway; I’ve never published anything just flor a laugh and I don’t mean to make fun of Steve; Really.
But the way this thread went and how it turns out at the end (so far) seemed so damned funny that I felt I had to share it with you.
Yes I turn out to be a smart ass again and yes I know your not supposed to laugh at your own jokes etc. but; well read on and see what I mean and if anybody wants to lay into me about what a conceited asshole I am; I won’t blame you and I promise not to argue. Unless that’s what you want…………………….
The most amazing thing to me is that when the cops found literature from the “Constitutional Society” including a copy of that most dangerous document to cops like these and their Fascist Masters;………………..The United States Constituion.
After illegally dragging her out of the car and handcuffed her then illegally rooting through her vehicle and personal items; the Cop looks at the material, tries to decide if he should confiscate it, and then states that he isn’t sure if it is illegal to have.
He thinks she might be allowed to read the material.
He thinks she might be allowed to read the material?
He thinks she might be allowed to read the material!
I sat for a long time trying to decide just what I could write about Christmas that wouldn’t sound phony and cliché With the Economy as it is and our Politics where they are and with me always telling everyone to expect a Fascist takeover of our government; I wasn’t sue what i could say that would sound sincere.
I didn’t want to be one of those guys who isn’t able to put down his sword long enough to talk about something more positive for the Holiday and come here with my usual angry criticism and drag everyone down.
I also didn’t want to be a hypocrite by wishing a Merry Christmas to people for whom I have no respect and believe to be Evil and who I am sure do not wish me a Merry anything.
So; a real puzzler; but then I remembered that I had read an article about a Christmas event that happened some time ago and it occurred to me that perhaps I could write a Christmas wish that I could feel good about; and maybe you can too.
So here we go. Imagine that is cold. So cold that you can’t feel your fingers. Snow is falling steadily but slowly and in the distance; the sounds of singing wafts over the frozen ground and now and then you hear the sound of………………………..
I was out browsing the usual blogs today when I found a very good article discussing constitutional rights vs. privileges etc. It was obviously written by a person of Liberal bent. It was well written and I found the information interesting but a bit confusing in the way laws can be when the details are committed to paper. But as I was reading, something kept nagging at me and I finally realized what it was and articulated my concern to the blogger. My concern was his wording of the second amendment to the Constitution.
“state militia to bear arms” (Second Amendment)
The actual wording is:
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State,
the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”
My political opinions run pretty far left and I see this kind of perversion of this amendment frequently; usually from the Left. Not my left but most people’s.
So I commented to him and with the full intention of posting it here as well as follows:………………………….
