Pretty Blue Pill

Victims

Have you ever noticed that every part of the liberal agenda starts with a victim?

And why not? Getting the emotions stirred is probably the most sure-fire way to prevent good thinking. That’s why we conservatives seem so heartless to the typical liberal. When they’re outraged, we’re asking questions. And while they’re boo-hooing, we’re constructing logical arguments.

Now, I use the term victim loosely because typically a victim is someone who has been taken advantage of in some way by another person. We don’t usually use the term to refer to people who have been taken advantage of by themselves.

Maybe you can see where this is headed, but I caution you, don’t get me wrong. I’m not at all suggesting that everyone in America who is down on their luck is there because they’ve been stupid. But I am suggesting that it happens much more than you think.

I first became a conservative voter (I had always been a social conservative) by listening to my wife talk about her job. She worked as a social worker in Atlanta and in New Orleans when we moved there, and then in Atlanta again when we moved back after Katrina.

Most of her clients, personality-wise, were awesome people. I even had a chance to meet a few of them. But the single biggest problem she had dealing with them was the fact that none of them (and I mean none of them) made wise financial decisions.

They were trapped in a culture where it was acceptable to buy your kids $100 shoes, but depend on the government to get them food. Or they’d spend over $150 a month on cable television, but continually used the excuse that they couldn’t find a job because they didn’t own reliable transportation (and taking the bus is just so expensive, you know).

Naturally, after continually hearing this (and seeing it too), and then observing how my own family was scraping by while I was in school—my wife working full time in the midst of the most dangerous cities in the country, I worked five odd jobs while I was a full time student, working toward my Masters degree, and our daughter spent nine hours a day in daycare while my wife and I worked to pursue our dreams—I soon got over the bleeding heart liberal syndrome.

And the problem I have with liberal ideologues is that they encourage these people to see themselves as victims. They’re not at all interested in helping these people get out of the cycle of bad decisions while hard working tax payers foot the bill. Fixing the problem doesn’t give them a political advantage.

Which brings me to the point of this post: who’s really the victim in America today? Is it really the lazy welfare recipient sitting on the sofa watching Jerry Springer every day? Believe it or not, I’d say yes. Yes it is. Though not in the way liberals would say. They are actually the victims of a system that empowers them to live like this.

But we are also victims. Working class Americans who are making wise financial decisions, only to see their hard-earned money taken from them to expand the government and given to people who aren’t even trying to help themselves. That is very frustrating to say the least.

And who’s doing the victimizing? Well, I’ll leave that for you to figure out…

Liberal Kindness

One of the many things that frustrates me about liberals is the false impressions they create. For example, one of the talking points we’ll hear about over the next few weeks and months is the fact that conservatives don’t care about people, that we only care for ourselves.

And the tragedy is that many people—including conservatives—have come to believe that. And why not? It’s all you hear. Even the national media (maybe I should say, especially the nation media) plays into this notion. That Liberals are just the most caring folks. Meanwhile conservatives are busy hoarding all our dough.

The only problem with all this is that, like so much of modern Liberalism, it’s a complete lie.

Statistics show that conservatives are much more likely to donate their money and their time to charities (both religious and secular) than are liberals. Even though liberals actually make more money, a recent survey showed that conservative-headed households were 30% more likely to give to charity than liberal households.

In fact, if you split the 50 states in half based on giving (put the 25 most charitable states in group 1 and the 25 least charitable in group 2), in 2004 Bush won 24 of the 25 states in group 1.

So we conservatives believe the way to help people is to give our money. Unfortunately, liberals also believe the best way to help people is to give of OUR money. But they want to give our money to the government.

My point?

Conservatives want the same thing that liberals SAY they want. That is, to help people. But we have a different way to accomplish it. And the fact is: YOUR WAY ISN’T WORKING!

Liberals have been “helping” black people for 40 years. And look at what’s happened during that time. The black family has been destroyed, STD instances have skyrocketed, there are more black men in jail than ever before, our race is dwindling because of 400,000 abortions a year (we used to be the largest minority group—not anymore), and 70% of our children are born into out of wedlock situations. None of these things were a problem before the socialists started “helping” us.

And the reality is that black people in America who live in areas where conservatives are political leaders are FAR (and I mean FAR) better off than blacks who live in areas dominated by liberal politicians. Socialism doesn’t work.

So please stop helping!

You’re killing us with kindness.

If you want to help, do what the Tuohy family, who inspired “The Blind Side” movie, did—find someone who needs help and HELP THEM!!!!

Why do you have to bring the government into it?

The truth is, you don’t. And you shouldn’t.

Delusion

Liberals are so delusional. I don’t say that to be mean, but because I honestly believe that a propensity toward delusion is a key requisite to being liberal. And of course the liberal media is there to assist you when reality starts to crowd in on you.

With regard to the massive health bill that Obama is set to sign into law today, Liberals have forgotten that the vast majority of Americans are against it. And that the main reason America elected Obama in the first place is because he posed as a moderate during the 2008 campaign.

But liberals have had a hard time in just about every election since the 2008 election. Why? Because the cat has now vacated the proverbial bag. Obama’s not just liberal, he’s an extremist—possibly socialist, depending on your definition. But one thing’s for sure—he’s not the moderate he played during the campaign.

Yet liberals have convinced themselves that this “victory” is something the American people wanted, even though polls show the opposite. But answer me this, if the American people wanted this, then why does Obama feel the need to “sell” this soon-to-be law to the public?

And with huge majorities in both the chambers of Congress, why did it take so long (and so many back room deals) to pass this legislation?

The fun part of all this will be hearing how liberals manage to keep the delusion going after November.

The Ugly Truth

Ugly Truth

Ugly Truth

Where’s the anger?

Where’s the venom?

Where’s the coverage?

When a right-wing extremist murdered abortion doctor, George Tiller, the establishment media (and much of the rest of the left) had a all-out ball reporting, laying blame, generalizing, and smearing the right.

Their logic went something like this:

Hey you know, one guy on your side committed murder. Therefore all you guys are murderers and extremists and need to be controlled.

Doesn’t the Ku Klux Klan employ similar reasoning?

Hey, one of you niggers raped a white woman, therefore you’re all rapists.

Never mind the fact that only about 14% of white women raped are raped by black men. Facts are such an inconvenience to those intent on hating an entire demographic.

But the difference is this; the Klan doesn’t run the national media.

Yesterday, an anti-abortion activist was targeted and killed by an abortion advocate. Not surprisingly, the press didn’t cover the story with nearly as much enthusiasm as the Tiller killing. Both murders were wrong, according to my beliefs. But for the media it seems that one was more newsworthy than the other.

Interesting. And telling for obvious reasons.

But the truly interesting thing here is the reason why the killing took place.

Evidently the alleged gunman didn’t like the fact that his victim, James Pouillon, held a sign that showed a healthy baby on one side with the caption LIFE, and an aborted (murdered) baby on the other side with the caption ABORTION.

What’s the big deal?

Well in case you’ve haven’t noticed, for many liberals (I won’t say all, for fear of committing the sin of generalizing myself) nothing gets their goat like the uncompromised truth. The last thing they want anyone to see is a real-life image of their version of “rights,” “freedom,” and “choice.”

It is a sad fact of life, manifested in that great time-honored tradition of killing the messenger. Many folks don’t want the truth, and will even kill you to avoid it.
