People Are Wising Up

Remember this woman: “Obama Will Pay For My Gas And Mortgage” – Peggy Joseph 2008

Peggy Joseph now: “He Lied About Everything”
“Just like the Wizard of Oz, Obama has turned out to be nothing more than a man behind a curtain,”

While at a Chicago protest (I am sure these individuals voted for obame twice):
“Barack will go down as the worth president ever elected, Bill Clinton was the African-American President,” one resident said, in response to the president’s performance on the job, “President Barack needs to pay attention to Chicago, if he can not pay attention to Chicago and the African-American community, he needs to resign.”

This is confirmed by Quinnipiac poll:

“Forty-five percent of voters said the U.S. would be better off with Mitt Romney serving in the White House”
“Fifty-four percent of voters say the Obama administration is not competent at running the government.”

Nooo… not by the TEA Party as the leftist dumbed down talking points command.

All in all – nothing is really surprising if you are an independent thinker and not caught up in the “Cult of Personality” as are the mindless proggy drones.

      That’s a priceless article Casper, perfectly written for the ignorant progressive. I loved this line:

      I only wished there were a major party more liberal than the Democrats for whom I could vote.

      The only party further left of the current Democrats would be the communist party, and there are some communist countries he could move to. And knowing how big hearted progressives are, I am sure many of you would help with his moving expenses.

      And his conclusion is even better:

      Sadly, it took me years — decades — to see the illogic of supporting people who disdain me. But I’m a super-slow learner. I wish I could take the poorest, struggling conservatives and shake them. I would scream that their circumstances or failures or joblessness are not all their fault.

      All the poor people should vote for Elizabeth Warren, because she really does care about them. Especially the Native Americans.

        That is, though, the ultimate appeal of liberalism – whatever the problem is, you’ve got someone else to blame. Its the “one percent”, its “men”, its “racists”, its “sexists”, its “Christians”…its “Jews”; its “kulaks”; etc, etc, etc,…always an enemy! There is he! He is why you aren’t well off! He’s the one! Just support us, and we’ll get him for ya and make ‘im pay! And they fall for it…never realizing until it is too late that all they’ve done is turned themselves into slaves.

        Well of course. And if we could just find the money to rebuild those damn roads and bridges all would be well.

      Leave it to casper to find something like this. And leave it to casper to buy into it. The story is crap and the reasons given for this alleged move to the Left are remarkably free of any political content whatsoever. Every now and then someone comes up with some silly nonsense like this, which is always the same. I guess there will always be a fool to buy into it, but that is only because it shores up the fool’s own stupidity. He can, like casper just did, point to the story and chortle; “See!!!!!! Somebody ELSE is as stupid as I am!”

        I am curious as to your opinion on Turley’s testimony and the lawsuit

    • M. Noonan July 20, 2014 / 4:39 pm

      He hasn’t wised up, at all – like you, he doesn’t understand that Pelosi, Reid, Obama and the rest of the liberal leaders are mere tools of a Big Government/Big Corporation ruling class which wants to make people ever poorer and more dependent – because beggars are easier to please. He’s happy he’s got his government crumbs – he doesn’t realize that he should own property and be independent. Neither do you: because you also live off the crumbs from Master’s table.

    Sort of OT, but interesting — I got the link to this article from a good friend. It confirms something that I think most of us have suspected for a long time. The comments are especially illustrative, particularly this one:

    SustainbleFuture • 2 days ago
    “negativity bias” doesn’t sound very ‘science like’ to me, but you can make it up as you go. The truth is that ‘conservatives’ are just people with simple minds, who rely upon their animal instincts of fear and anger (flight and fight) in the risk adverse way most animals act. They don’t try new things, they don’t question authority, they stay within their herd and fear those they don’t know or understand. Essentially they are cowards, incurious, unwilling to put themselves in any situation that could potentially harm them. They let their emotions rule their decisions.

    This isn’t that different than radical islam, or extremism of any sort. It’s a valid way of life in primitive tribal communities. We need to educate these ‘conservative’ people, enlighten them to the joys of meeting new and different people, help them understand things that are different than what they know, because only then will we lower the bar enough for them to tentatively explore the world outside.

    That said, whatever genetic predispositions people may have, as humans we all have the potential to think and use our ability to reason. The more brainwashed and indoctrinated people are, the older they become, the harder it gets, but I can change your mind if we don’t worry about the Geneva conventions.

    What’s humorous is that I think most of us Conservatives view Leftists the same way this guy views us.

    • Cluster July 21, 2014 / 5:54 pm

      Self awareness among progressives is woefully lacking. I would describe progressives in much the same fashion and can prove it, especially the “emotions ruling their decision” part. What’s mind numbing though is the false construct of conservatives that progressives cling to and will evidently take to their grave. And that is the notion that conservatives are all “old white guys”. This false construct is what allows them to build false premises and apparently that is what gives them the comfort they need to never “question the authority” of those on the left.

      It’s a surreal world.

    • Amazona July 21, 2014 / 7:36 pm

      “They don’t try new things, they don’t question authority, they stay within their herd and fear those they don’t know or understand. Essentially they are cowards, incurious, unwilling to put themselves in any situation that could potentially harm them. ”

      Hmmm. Yet we find that Liberals do very little that is contrary to this litany of alleged characteristics.

      As a conservative, I constantly question “authority” because I look at facts, not identity. If you examine one of the biggest Liberal whines, that conservatives refuse to knuckle under and give in to the majority opinion that reelected Obama and therefore, according to them, should rule the nation, you will see that it is not the conservative side that refuses to question the authority of this government. We are not the ones who say that identity is all, and we should bow down to those with the right credentials even when they are blatantly wrong.

      As for “staying within their herd” this is a hoot, as it is Dems who march in lockstep with their masters, while conservatives constantly quibble with each other, challenge each other, and in general refuse to become part of a mindless homogenous echo chamber. It is the Left that invents “herds”, which they call “communities”, and then expect/demand that those within a certain herd, or “community”, all act the same and most important vote the same. It is the Left with herds such as The Gay Community or the Latino Community or the Black Community, and is the Left who try to enforce strict allegiance within these herds. Let someone stray, such as those black people who are politically conservative, and we see the Left excoriating them for leaving the herd, calling them names and slandering and libeling them in vicious ways. Conservatives, on the other hand, see people as individuals, and then as individuals who may have certain characteristics such as sexual orientation or skin color or ethnic background. The Right does not believe in herds, while the Left creates them and depends on them.

      If you look at conservatives as a political movement—that is, people who believe that the Constitution of the United States is the only and best way to govern this nation—-you will see that we do not “fear” our opposition but merely disdain it as a viable way to govern the nation as well as contrary to our official rule of law. And we take this position because we DO know and understand the opposition. It is the Left which is studiously ignorant of the ideology of the Right, of our motivation and our goals, and it is the Left which then has to fill the vacuum by simply inventing silly lies and promoting ugly stereotypes. Ask nearly any conservative why he is a conservative and he is likely to tell you in detail, explaining our Constitution, its history and its foundation, the thoughts and writings of the Founders, and the successes of the nation when it followed this rule of law. He is likely to give you many examples of the failures of the Leftist political model, often with specific years and national leaders and details of the various failures around the world. Ask nearly any Lefty why he is a Lefty and he will tell you it is because the Right is mean and selfish and when you spread the wealth around (OTHER peoples’ wealth, that is) everyone is better off and No Blood For Oil and probably something about the “1 %” and don’t forget the WARRRR ON WOMENNNNNN !!!!

      It has tended to be conservatives who have, from the beginning, stood up to tyranny and been willing to fight and die to defeat it. From the Founders who pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to the patriots of today who fight to protect the rights of the Left to snivel and bitch and moan, it has never been the Left fighting for freedom. On the contrary, the only Leftists we ever see standing up to fight for anything are the mobs like the Occupy crowd, and their “courage” tends to be exhibited by public defecation and some rock-throwing.

    • Amazona July 21, 2014 / 7:45 pm

      “…help them understand things that are different than what they know, ..” because the last thing the Left can tolerate is knowledge. The goal of the Left is to have everyone “understand” what is not true, because that is the only way anyone can be part of this vast organism of ritualistic ignorance and seething emotion.

    People aren’t the only ones wising up. Governments are wising up as well. Doesn’t bode well for the hair-on-fire climate alarmists.

    Australia’s repeal of its carbon tax last week has gotten other countries thinking about ditching their own carbon dioxide emissions reduction schemes.

    On the heels of the Aussie carbon tax defeat, South Korea’s finance minister, Choi Kyung-hwan, called his country’s planned cap-and-trade system “flawed in many ways,” and hinted that he would pressure the government to delay the plan until 2015.

    Businesses say the cap-and-trade system could cost them up to $28.9 billion in three years unless the program is delayed until 2020.

    Reuters reports that South Korea’s emissions trading program has already been delayed twice since 2013. The system would have capped emissions from 400 top emitters in the country, potentially making it the world’s second-largest cap-and-trade system.

    But while some in the government remain optimistic about the system, Reuters notes that “some analysts have warned that the market’s emissions cap will be too low and have forecast that the South Korean carbon price could rocket towards $98, which is the penalty firms have to pay per tonne if they don’t meet their targets.”

    Australia’s conservative government was finally able to pass legislation aimed at repealing the country’s two-year old carbon tax last week. It was hailed as a victory by carbon tax opponents, citing the huge cost it imposed on families and the economy.

    U.S. politicians took notice of the repeal as well. Republican lawmakers said the Australian experience should serve as a warning to the Obama administration, which has recently introduce regulations aimed at lowering carbon dioxide emissions.

    “It is painfully obvious what a disastrous effect carbon constraining policies can have, and our European allies are the prime example,” said Louisiana Republican Sen. David Vitter in a statement. “Australia’s carbon tax was certain to provide all pain and no gain for their economy.”

    • Cluster July 22, 2014 / 12:59 pm

      The US emits 10% of the worlds carbon so further reductions in our emissions will DO NOTHING to resolve “global warming”, but will serve to keep a lid on our economy.

      • Retired Spook July 22, 2014 / 1:14 pm

        so further reductions in our emissions will DO NOTHING to resolve “global warming”, but will serve to keep a lid on our economy.

        And the fact that Obama still wants to do it tells you everything you need to know about the Left’s economic agenda.
