On the heels of Barack Obama's golf trip to Florida with Tiger Woods at the same time Michelle and the girls went to Aspen, home to the world's rich and famous, once again made me understand the difference between Obama-style and Romney-style (aka member communist politburo vs. capitalist).

Obama: Ostentatious lifestyle funded by the people!
Romney: Worked hard, took risks and created the lifestyle of a successful capitalist funded by his own earned wealth!

Final Thoughts!

Barack Obama's incessant rhetoric concerning the plight of the middle class belies the actual actions of this President who is living the lifestyle of the rich and famous on our dime!

If he had any actual feeling or empathy for the plight of the everyman perhaps he would stay home and play board games with the family around the White House fireplace!

At the same time Barack Obama's constant fear mongering about the effects of sequestration highlights the fact that what this President cares about is not the middle class but rather using the country and its people as pawns in some destructive political game!

Because the reality is that $82 billion in automatic spending cuts are merely a drop in the federal budget bucket and the places that any cuts would actually be made are at the discretion of the President who will seek to make them as painful as possible so that the American people will point their fingers of blame at the Republican Party.

Think for a second about the fact that the Hurricane Sandy relief legislation alone was packed with over $40 billion of pork! Why not just start the spending cuts there?

Warren Hill “Not Competent to Be Executed”?

Warren Lee Hill was scheduled to be executed in Georgia last night, but he has been granted a stay of execution because the courts are now convinced he might be retarded. Apparently, Georgia passed a law in 1988 prohibiting the execution of the mentally handicapped, and the Supreme Court has also ruled that this would be unconstitutional. I didn’t know the Constitution talked about mental health issues (must be in the interstate commerce clause), but…

Warren Lee Hill was in prison originally for murdering his girlfriend. He shot her 11 times. While in prison, he killed again, beating another inmate to death with a nail-spiked board. Was he messed up in the head? Clearly. Was he stupid? Undoubtedly. Does this mean he shouldn’t be executed? I don’t think so.

If we can for a moment assume that execution is a valid form of punishment for certain crimes (and murder would definitely be on the list), I fail to see how someone’s mental capacity before or after the crime matters at all.

Let’s take the materialist position briefly and say the man is no more than a mass of tissue and chemical interactions. No different than an animal, according to the materialist. Well, do you put down a rabid dog? It’s not the dog’s fault that it’s a danger to society, but you still kill it before it can do any more damage.

And there will be people that say, “How dare you compare these people to animals! They are human beings!” I agree. And execution has more human dignity than imprisonment, just ask Michel Foucault. You put a man in a cage and feed him dog food, and you force his victims to pay for it. I would have him pay with his life for a life he took.

Well, two lives now. Which reminds me. If they had executed Warren Hill for the first murder he committed, he never would have committed the second. That’s the first benefit of capital punishment. Even if it didn’t deter other people from committing similar crimes (which it does), it at least prevents the executed person from committing any other crimes.

But let’s assume Warren Hill has a soul, (which I don’t believe, but for the sake of all religious which is an overwhelming majority of you, let’s say you’re right). Then his soul must have some culpability for these murders. If not, how can you blame anyone for anything? How intelligent do you have to be to be culpable for your actions? And why does a person have to understand what he’s doing in order to be responsible for it? I don’t think most big government advocates understand fully how absolutely evil their political schemes are. They are, shall we say, a bit retarded. Does that mean they’re not responsible?

I can’t seem to find the logic in this. Should punishment depend on the understanding of the perpetrator? If you made it so, criminals would suddenly cease to understand anything. “What? Stealing is wrong?  Who knew?  I am really, really sorry. I  know nothing.”  This method of escaping punishment is ancient.

This has been the problem with measures like this from the beginning. Insanity pleas are a sliding line, far too easy to manipulate. And this is no different. Warren Hill loaded and fired a gun. He spiked a board with nails. He was competent enough to kill. He’s competent enough to be executed. Whether or not he understood the full import of what he did is immaterial. The crucial thing here is not what he knows, but what he did. The punishment should fit itself to the crime… not the criminal.

Are we breeding a generation of deluded narcissists?

The answer is yes.

Now add selfishness, entitlement mentality, victim mentality, me--me--me and you get a new level of unearned hubris. There is no guaranteed equal outcome as promised by the left.

On its face narcissism would seem to conflict with the entitlement and victim mentalities, but they're all blended together into a spirit of collective narcissism, leavened with doses of paranoia and despair. I think it goes something like this:

1. We are all special butterflies who deserve everything.

2. Making stern demands of people is cruel. Making me do what I say rather than just allowing me to say it vindictive and malicious.

3. Good people should never suffer from random misfortune - ranging from illness to job loss, or even the failure of entrepreneurial risk.

4. Special interests are so powerful that even the biggest government in the history of the world remains the underdog in battle against them. What chance do individuals have against something like that?

5. Therefore, our self-regard can only be expressed collectively - we must support even larger, more powerful, and more virtuous government with all of our hearts, because we see our own noble spirit reflected within it. And, as a happy side benefit, when the State does everything of consequence, it's easier to be indolent without guilt.

I've often wondered how much the Nineties Cult of Self-Esteem contributed to all this, as it aggressively pushed the notion that respect (and the attendant material benefits) are deserved, rather than earned.

These are the Obama voters..

Logic-Political Correctness and Zombies

Common sense is anything but common. Like every action a human being can perform, either physical or mental, common sense must be learned. A human being is not born with such ability, fully developed. And logic must accompany common sense. Logic is a discipline that is based upon fact and evidence of whatsoever is true. Logic teaches one to think. Without it, “common sense” would still dictate that the earth is flat. Logic used to be a required subject in school. It isn’t anymore. That isn’t an oversight. In his book The Intended Result of Education Bertrand Russell wrote: “Education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished.”

The left is never required to prove anything. Leftists make a statement and whatever they say automatically becomes true because they say it is so. We are expected to choke down their swill without a murmur of protest.
Every media outlet, whether entertainment, mainstream media or our elected representatives tells us only what they want us to believe regardless of how frequently what they tell us changes. And a dumbed-down populace meekly swallows, without dispute.

Political Correctness completes the destructive circle. When thinking is restricted thinking ceases to exist. Everything from eroding personal freedoms to gun control to the blind acceptance of any and every perversion stems from what is permissible thought and what is not. We have “hate crime.” Hate crime outranks crime. Why? Isn’t murder still murder?

Still worse, certain interest groups, we are told, are exempt from hate crime. Their status as minorities makes hate crime impossible. Christopher Dorner is a prime example. He slaughtered nearly every racial type and gender of human being yet excuses are made and the mainstream media urges us to consider the discrimination he was “fighting against.” Dorner is considered a folk-hero by many. The University of Wisconsin is teaching a course whose focus is that it is “unfair to be white.” Who gets to decree what’s unfair and what is not? What are the criteria? Dr. Benjamin Carson, an honored, world-famous, pediatric neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins, had the audacity to raise the alarm PC poses to thought at the National Prayer Breakfast in D.C. He did it with the President sitting a few feet away.

How unutterably sad that PC begs the question, had Dr. Carson not been a black man, would his reputation have survived making that speech? Because he did so there is still doubt; a mindless media is trying to marginalize and discredit him for committing the blasphemy of speaking his mind.

When logic, common sense and the ability to say what one thinks become irrelevant how much easier does it become for any ruling class to supply whatever “facts” they want their constituency to believe? Our current reality is that fact no longer has standing; instead we pay court to emotion. The danger in not understanding that this is the real predicament is immense; if one doesn’t recognize the problem how can one fix the problem?

Libtards have controlled education, social services and PC for nearly 100 years. “Low information voters” are created when only low information is made available; when indoctrination replaces education. An eighth grade education used to be tantamount to what is currently taught in college. The left’s agenda may well be the destruction of our ability to think, to be logical.

Without such aptitude there is no rule of law. Everything becomes mutable. The Constitution becomes disposable. Without thought we are unable to protect ourselves. We become the pawns of whoever governs over us. Absence of logical thought makes it easy to see how the man spearheading our ruin got reelected.

And it makes Libtards immune to Zombie attacks. Zombies are slow, and stupid, and they groan.  They say the zombie apocalypse is upon us.
But unfortunately, zombies won’t be eating any Libtards.

See, zombies like brains.
