Q&A: Democrat vs. Republican vs. Us
Did the Clintons sell America down the river? The boss of Al Gore — the almost Global Warming Fearmonger-in-Chief — certainly has a lot to explain for the enviro-whackpot, Democrat party war on the poor and middle class. And, how about the Left’s absurd attempt to halt the rise of the the seas and its war on capitalism and trying to increase the cost of energy across the board to fuel a bloated secular, socialist government that has become too big to fail. Look at Greece, Spain and California for good examples about how liberal Utopionism and Democrat Stonkernomics (The Bankruptcy of Leftists Stonkernomics and Liberal Utopianism) is pushing the country off a cliff.
On the night that Obama had won his primary victory over Hillary Clinton’s bid to be the party’s presidential candidate, among his promises and claims, he said, “This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.” You cannot get more absurd than that. It would translate into the administration’s push for cap-and-trade legislation. ~Alan Caruba
Instead of spreading fears about burning oil we should have been burning the midnight oil across America. And now we have a declining middle class under the Obama regime because the economy is shrinking under The Left’s cash-for-clunker, anti-business, food stamp populism and insider bail-out philisophy (e.g., using public money to bailout the Union that bankrupted GM with all of the good people who invested their savings in GM simply left holding the bag while Unions walked away with more money to fuel a bigger, badder and uglier government). We have more people everyday who simply leave the job market altogether with their hand out and looking for government to provide lifetime benefits.
Margaret Thatcher once said, ‘The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.’
George Bush’s economy inherited a recession from Clinton when he took office in 2001. If you remember, back then the Democrat party maligned every employer of every new worker by labeling every rise of employment under Bush as more “hamburger flipper jobs.”
When I took office, our economy was beginning a recession. Then our economy was hit by terrorists. Then our economy was hit by corporate scandals. ~George Bush
“W” inherited all of Clinton’s corporate scandals; all of the chickens came home to roost in 2002–e.g., Enron, Tyco International, Adelphia, Peregrine Systems, WorldCom, Arthur Anderson, Global Crossing… and then, the Sarbanes–Oxley Act of 2002 simply shot in the head all of the horses in the country that were pulling the load. And, we’re not supposed to remember that the Democrat party blasted Bush for telling Americans to go shopping when Bush was actually pleading with Americans fight against the fear tactics of Osama bin Laden and to carry on life as usual and not let the terrorists win in the aftermath of 9/11.
I guess it is not politically correct to remember that Clinton was actually impeached during his last term in office. The Clintons have a problem: they cannot tell the truth. Bill Clinton’s AR bar license was revoked because he lied under oath. And of course there was the Whitewater Scandal. Whitewater was Hillary’s only client in AR where she drew a salary as a figurehead partner of the largest law firm in AR. Hillary’s salary was the way connected insiders paid off Governor Bill Clinton for political favors–which was the only way to get anything done in the state.
It was machinations like those practiced at Whitewater that helped usher in all of the 2002 corporate scandals and the big “dot.com” boom which became a big “dot.com” bust of 2001, which in turn resulted in the loss of billions of dollars, a stock market crash, unemployment and abandoned Porsches in parking lots across the Silicon Valley.
And, even with all of the heightened public scrutiny, Illinois Democrat operatives still very nearly stole the election in Florida for C02-fighter, Al Gore, by seeing “hanging chads” on voter cards for Bush, finding confusing ballots as the only plausible explanation for why old Jewish women voted for third-party candidate Patrick Buchanan, and by bringing the dispute they created out of whole cloth before a liberal Florida Supreme court. Given the long record of Illinois politics and its role in the election of JFK we may all be just one hanging chad away from the country’s next president and George Bush may in the end be the last honest man to hold the office.
The Democrat party is essentially going for broke in the coming election with the unborn as bargaining chips and $10 a gallon gas as the jackpot. How will you vote? We can predict a lot based on the answers to a few simple questions, as follows:
Q: Does the government owe me a job?
Q: Is being self-employed anti-American?
Q: Who pays for a government job?
Q: Are politicians smater than you about how to spend money?
Q: Did I pay for your transportation?
Q: What did you do to earn an education?
Q: Is there such a thing as a free lunch?
Q: Earnings taken by politicians is like getting humped by Royals, right?
Q: Does free enterprise and American capitalism melt glaciers and raise seas?
Who do you prefer George Washington or Mao Tse-Tung?
The spell is then broken and the faith collapses, when Mann is finally forced to admit that, Yes, Virginia there really was a MWP and a LIA. Just, as Jones admitted that recent warming was insignificant and Trenberth admitted that he couldn’t find the heat, the goblal warming ‘social mania’ has come face to face with reality.
Walter Starck famously observed so poignantly that being taken over by a mania leads to a disconnect from the real world and it is that disconnect that, often leads to a zenith of zealotry… just before increasingly obvious reality finally forces them to make some small admission of error.. While there is good scientific evidence that atmospheric carbon dioxide is increasing from the burning of fossil fuels, and that carbon dioxide does indeed absorb infared heat radiation of certain frequencies, it is purely speculation that this will cause a climate catastrophe.
“One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact. ~Mark Twain
Reality check — California is the only state among the ‘nations’ that comprise the top ten economies in the world. It ranks ninth. That is down from eighth. It used to be fifth. And the u6 unemployment rate (i.e., the real not the ‘official’ unemployment statistic) is currently at 22%. Why the decline in the economy and the rise in unemployment: global warming or anti-business-global warming Leftist politics, government workers’ unions and the hubris of liberal Utopianism?
“…my good friend James Lovelock who once said that within the next 50 years or so the few remaining humans will be huddled up in high latitudes to escape the heat of the lower latitudes… has recently said the alarmists were wrong, and has moved to a new coastal home, unafraid of rising seas. ~Burt Rutan
