    Oh, BTW…if you are into tabloid papers at the checkout counter, one of them (I don’t know b/c they all look equally stupid) proclaimed on a big headline that they found the guy that forged Obama’s birth certificate.

    So, now we know 😉

  2. It’s OK, all these idiots are heading to Canada to escape our new United Socialist States of America.

    Be warned! Mat…Stop taking down their signs!! It’s just not fair 😉

  6. TJ,

    Wow. That’s a lot of stupid. Do people really believe this crap? I’m serious. Do people honestly believe this crap?

    If, as a nation, we have more than a small percentage of people who are falling for this nonsense then maybe we should just allow them to secede. Take the South, whatever. Good luck with it.

    “This is the King taxing us at his whim.”

    Anyone with even the most basic knowledge of American history should be able to see this as uneducated hyperbole and populist claptrap. It appeals to the “revolutionary patriot” mythology that tells people that they should look back to their forward thinking (relative to the time, anyway) ancestors so that they can “take the country back” to the good old days. Because, you know, the Founders looked at the monarchy in England and wanted to go back to some loose federation of tribes.

    On top of that, “the King” is not “taxing us at his whim”. That’s what was happening in the 1700s, before the Revolution and before we enacted our version of representative democracy. So, it wasn’t “King Obama” that levied a tax against his people without any “representation”. Unless, of course, these idiots want to argue that they can only be represented by a Congress of lockstep, mouth-breathing Tea Party goons.

    To say that “the King” levied a tax when, in fact, it was a piece of legislation that was before the entire Congress, passed, signed, and now brought before the Supreme Court and largely upheld is an absolutely asinine appeal to people that assumes that they have either zero common sense or basis in historical and political reality. Whoever wrote that is either completely ignorant or intellectually bankrupt. It’s sensationalism wrapped up in a tattered American flag and covered with a healthy serving of stupid.

    “…the liberal elitists who are destroying this country with their socialist agenda!”

    Again, the mind-blowing inanity of this statement almost makes forming a coherent rebuttal impossible. The mind wants to simply reach through the computer and locate the person who typed those words and smack the stupid straight out of their head. And, I’m sorry if that sounds like I want to prevent someone from having their freedom of speech but, as I have said before, the freedom of speech is not the freedom to be a complete idiot.

    I would like for any one of these people to explain to me how, in any definition of the word “socialism”, the Affordable Care Act is “destroying this country”. It’s a trick question of course, because no one you talk to who is right of Dennis Kucinich can correctly define the political, social, or economic tenets of socialism, or communism. But it’s a convenient bogeyman of a term to bandy about, although the right would bristle at being called “fascist”. Especially since they have also attached that word to the President at times.

    And as to an “educational” class about the “Morality of Capitalism” I can only say that it must take a world-class moron to make that argument. There is no moral argument for capitalism.

    Below is a copy of yet another fear mongering screed….totally out of proportion to what happened yesterday. But it’s important to be aware of how the opposition uses spin.

    ” Call me what you want, but people, we have just witnessed a modern day Judas, and this time it really could be Bushes fault, for he appointed this Chief Justice (Roberts).  It appears that We-the-People, the US Constitution and the USA are now treading water in a man made sink hole!. CJ Roberts has now shown his true stripes as a leftist. In order to do away with the true argument that the Congressional ruling establishing ObamaCare would be charged as a fee for being born and living in the USA, Roberts changed ObamaCare to a tax — which Obama had argued previously and intensely stated was NOT a tax — in order to mollify and please his true leader.

    However, during the oral arguments, Obama’s lawyers ruled it IS a tax.

    In what I view as an act of brazen disregard for the US Constitution, Roberts sided with the Marxists on the US Supreme Court in ruling that Americans can be controlled by the (now) totalitarian government and we people will be forced to pay it for simply being born. What will happen now? Will a few people renounce their citizenship and leave this once-blessed country? I don’t think so, but I do believe the Supreme court has delivered a big blow to the solar plexus of we citizens. Under now-openly totalitarian CJ Roberts, SCOTUS has now joined the Executive and Legislative branches representing the left. You might ask why I chose the word “Totalitarian?”  Simply because the control of our national health plan gives the federal government control over another 1/6th of our national wealth , which means control over millions of people. Apparently, this is what Obama,  planned all along. With Roberts assistance, the enslavement of the American people appears to now be complete. 

    We are in trouble folks, so what are we to do?  The only thing I know is to form a very large coalition that will fight against the wholly owned federal government . He is already nullifying the 10th amendment, and has set his sight on the rest of the bill of rights.  If the states do not band together and fight the federal gov. take over, I just do not know what our outcome will be, but rest assured, it will never be what it has been for over 200 years.  Is it possible that we will be facing oppression worst than Joseph Stalin’s USSR, and Hitlers Germany?  None of us really know what lies ahead, but if you are perceptive enough to be able to read the “tea leaves” that life is displaying, I think you will have a pretty good idea.

    May God intervene, and if it is his will, save this nation —once again from the progressives and extreme liberals that  inhabit this once great land that he created!

    “There is no moral argument for capitalism.”

    FALSE.

    Capitalism is the only moral social system. It is the only system that recognized, respects and protects individual rights. We do not have a free market political-economy in this country. We have an immoral interventionist economy.

    “The moral justification of capitalism does not lie in the altruist claim that it represents the best way to achieve ‘the common good.’ It is true that capitalism does—if that catch-phrase has any meaning—but this is merely a secondary consequence. The moral justification of capitalism lies in the fact that it is the only system consonant with man’s rational nature, that it protects man’s survival qua man, and that its ruling principle is: justice.”

    Also, the morality of capitalism is a major theme in the book Atlas Shrugged, which for the first time in history offered a full defense of capitalism, not just as a practical system of economics, but as the only moral social system.

    The “Morality of Capitalism.” If they have to argue for its morality, maybe they have a confidence issue. Performance anxiety?

  10. Thanks Davyne. My head hurts now.

  11. Dixiegirlz says:

    Hold your friends close and your enemies closer….heh, heh, heh.

  12. TJ says:

    “Wow. That’s a lot of stupid. Do people really believe this crap? I’m serious. Do people honestly believe this crap”

    Unfortunately, yes. And, they have no problem hearing the echo of their own words. Weird AND stupid.

    “Hold your friends close and your enemies closer”

    The reason I don’t email them and tell them to stop sending me spam…oops, I mean, “information.”

    I still wonder when they will associate me as the “frequent female participant” seen at the comedy relief night wearing an FBI hat, and, stop sending me all these lovely memos…including some secret way to vote that only “members” have access to, rather than just anyone “off the street.”

    Here’s an interesting email I got from the Tea bag guys..

    “NC 11 Candidate Removed from iCaucus Process: Info

    “ It is with great regret that the iCaucus Executive Board has made the decision to remove Mr. Patterson from the endorsement process. It appears through research completed by the iCaucus teams at the State and National levels, there may be a conflict regarding the information contained on Mr. Patterson’s business website and the commitments on those issues he made to the local iCaucus members and affiliate groups in the Qualifying Questionnaire. iCaucus was contacted by many of those constituents with these concerns. iCaucus is a organization of individual citizens uniting to take back their representation from the establishment and special interests.” http://www.ashevilleteapac.org

    From Asheville Tea PAC: Endorsement of Mark Meadows NC 11 in the Primary Run-Off http://www.ashevilleteapac.org for more details.

    Vance Patterson, candidate NC 11, has been removed from the iCaucus process. In addition, there has been misinformation concerning Mark Meadows that needs to be corrected. There have also been disparaging comments and negative attacks on iCaucus members and Affiliate groups and leaders. The link below is for public release to iCaucus members, delegates and Affiliate groups and for anyone else who asks for the reasons and the research supporting the reasons for Mr. Patterson’s removal from the iCaucus process or to negate attempts to further false accusations and information. The statement and link below from ICaucus contain the released information, complete with attachments:

    And, last, but not least, the all-important manhunt for the criminal who is taking those signs. Damn it, Mat! I told you to cut it out!
    😉

    “To the the thief who has been stealing Mark Meadows campaign signs in Buncombe, Haywood and Henderson counties and destroying billboards and replacing them with your own! You know who you are! Shame on you. As promised, the police have been alerted. Your actions are a testament to just how far this country has sunk. You expect us to vote and trust your candidate when you resort to these unlawful and underhanded tactics! The rest of us need to remain vigilant so we can catch the thief in this shameful act.”
