I Get Hate Mail

October 14, 2009 Leave a comment

So I got the following drive-by (read: cowardly) comment the other day from a reader calling him/herself Tiger By The Tail:

cham⋅ber⋅lain
/ˈtʃeɪmbərlɪn/ [cheym-ber-lin]
–noun
1. An excuse for war used primarily by mouth breathing conservatards.

And it occurs to me that it clearly demonstrates pretty much everything that is wrong in the Liberal mind.  Stay with me here:

  • I am very clever
  • I am always right
  • I am a Good Person™
  • All wars are bad
  • None have ever had any positive consequences
  • Conservatives are always wrong
  • Because they are Bad People
  • They deserve to have insults thrown at them
  • I do not deserve and will not stand for such things
  • Conservatives absolutely LOVE war and are looking for any excuse to start one
  • Because they are Bad People

Sounds about right, doesn’t it?

Communism

August 27, 2008 Leave a comment

Just thought I’d post this. Few people in this country have ever read it. Fewer understand it and its implications. Fewer still realize that this is the direction we’ve been heading pretty much since the Woodstock generation took over. I present to you:

10 Planks of the Communist Manifesto

1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

3. Abolition of all right of inheritance.

4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.

6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.

7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

8. Equal liability of all to labour. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equable distribution of the population over the country.

10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production

According to the Communist Manifesto, all these were prerequisites for a transition from capitalism to communism. In other words, these are the building blocks of a Communist state. Does any of the above sound familiar? And not to sound like Mr. Mackey, but “Communism’s bad, mmkay.”

Remember the wise words of Ronald Regan, “How do you tell a Communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.”

And my favorite Regan quote, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.'”
