We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I was just watching Julie Banderas and she had a democrat woman on and a republican guy on to discuss 'things'. Good grief, the democrat woman called the "poor people at the protests like lemmings who are following others who have agendas."
Whoa. Banderas tried to get her to answer a specific question and she, the dem, simply repeated how the American people had spoken when they voted for Obama.....
ARGH. Actually, they are their own worst enemies now - as long as the quiet start to pay attention.
I saw that, she was from the DNC. What really struck me from her very condescending manner and comments about deluded lemmings is that this is raw power politics. The Messiah's latest prime-time speech and all of the ones he's given since then are the same. There is no pretense of finding common ground or attempts to debate and persuade. Those who disagree are going to be "called out", we are supposed to "shut up" and "get out of the way."
They drip with pure contempt for American citizens who have the audacity to disagree and they deliberately and repeatedly insult us. The fact that they are insulting a majority of voters is irrelevant to them-- they don't fear voters, they aren't concerned about losing public support, this is about strong arming members of their own party.
The inciting of mobs and divisive speech is part of a community organizer's job description. It's what Obama knows, it's his comfort zone. The problem is that he's no longer a diddly little street organizer, he's the President.
Meta ... I guess we're all just "deluded lemmings," like the lady with the fiercely false smile says we are. Which is better than being "complacently servile" which Camille Paglia says the Democratic elite is. Wasn't the Democratic lady a cartoon of a liberal? Maybe she's still learning to be a community organizer.
