Flippant Philippic

I have the following statistics I would like to forward.. I understand that mere statistics are devoid of excitement but when they are applied to the liberal left, they are bursting with information and incredibly revealing.. With the left, as it was with their communist contemporaries, statistics illuminate the typical, “good, bad and indifferent” way of political “thinking” on the left.. “Good” for the liberal elite and their indentured servants of the lowest class, “indifferent” or worse, “bad”, for the ever disappearing middle class..

This year the Dow Jones is UP 18%, the S and P 500 is UP 23% and NASDAQ is UP 30%.. From March of 2009, the Dow is UP 135%, as well the S and P is UP 158% and NASDAQ is UP 208%.. This would be the “good”, but as it is with ALL liberalism, it is VERY “good” for the liberal elite. (AGAIN, “money” isn’t ‘bad’ with the left, they just say that it is when they are at their patriotic flag burnings, it’s just ‘bad’ when ANYONE but they themselves have it and are in charge of its dissemination..) (Here is a dose of “good” OWEbama news: the food stamp roll went from 47,760,247 to 47,637,497, a whopping difference of 122,750 who have disappeared from the repulsive ranks.. This could be accounted for as a rational percentage of deaths amongst nearly 48 million people.. Strike up the band, boys..) (Statistics from Fox Business Channel)

Now for the “bad”.. The OWEbama DEBT went UP $328 BILLION last Thursday alone. The OWEbama DEBT is now above $17 TRILLION.. Over 47 million “Americans” (Hopefully, we are counting ALL of the illegals in this as they have to be lumped in with REAL Americans for the purpose of counting their collective drain upon productive society..) are now about with their hats in their hands.

The “cost” (dollars only, like ALL of the carcinogenic liberalism, the “cost” to the minds of the intentionally enslaved by the compassionate collectivists isn’t being calculated by the calculating left..) for this “program” is now at OVER $78 BILLION and counting.. 56% of these “beneficiaries are “eligible” for OVER five years.. (No mention of the percentage of those on the “lifetime” plan..) 17% of these “beneficiaries” are ABOVE the magical “poverty line.. As well, 90,609,000 Americans are NOT in the workforce, ANOTHER OWEbama record. (Repeat after me, “It’s all George Bush’s fault..”)

What are we to glean from these partial but hideous examples of liberal political slime, of two economic extremes approved of by the extremists of the far left? It is typical of the liberal elitists who look at “politics” as their “career”.. (They also look at liberalism as their god but that is another story for another day..) They shamelessly reward THEIR rich, they strive through their “compassion” to eliminate the middle class and they placate the poor with money stolen from what’s left of the working middle class..

I have noticed a pattern.. It seems that America is playing a game show called “Dollars for Dignity”. If you are willing to cashier your dignity, you too can be “supported” by the liberal elite. All that they ask of you in return for this sanctimonious stipend is for you to constantly bellow and moan about your station in life so that they can arrange a raise for you courtesy of the middle class and as well, they demand your perpetual votes (yes, ‘votes’, plural. The more the better..) on election day.

“Dollars for Dignity” has expanded into the cesspool of “entertainment” with the riveting “reality shows” where all that is required of you is the ability to humiliate yourself in front of a camera..

OWEbama actually said that the dreaded “shut down” of the liberal gravy train government “slowed our growth”.. (CNS News) OWEbama’s DEBT GREW by $328 BILLION the day AFTER the “shut down” ended, so for the first time in recorded history, OWEbama was correct.. The “problem” certainly GREW after the shut down, its just a difference in perspective as to what was “growing” and just how bad that this OWEbama “growth” truly is..

For those in need of further reinforcement of my “definitional inversion” theory, please consider the “AFFORDABLE health scare act” as your fulcrum.. A review of the nomenclature of “Definitional Inversion” seems appropriate at this time..

Definitional Inversion is the art of distraction in order to deceive. With those as your precepts, it is no surprise that the liberals have mastered this black art. Definitional Inversion is meant to immediately distract you 180 degrees from THEIR intent. “Affordable” is going to be EXPENSIVE. “Health Care” will mean rationing for those of us NOT amongst the liberal power elite. Occasionally, the left will call it “Universal” health care and again, this will be rationing for those of us NOT under the protective umbrella of liberal politics. Those that PAY taxes will be “universally” screwed by this scam, those that COLLECT and SPEND those taxes are EXEMPT..

The Definitional Inversion ALWAYS appeals to the liberal’s alleged “morality”. This is almost always accompanied by an appreciable increase in volume, allegedly due to their “outrage”. “How can you be AGAINST AFFORDABLE health care for ALL?” The liberals want their words taken at face value, but their “words” and their inevitable “actions” that follow their “words” are two different things altogether..

If the liberals sense that you are going to attempt to argue “substance” relative to ANY of their protected topics, Definitional Inversion affords them the opportunity to IMMEDIATELY distract and deflect from direct issues onto the safe and soft scenario of fluff and nonsense.. Definitional Inversion is not unlike “transvaluation”, a 180 degree difference in reality.. Failing that, you can always be called a “racist”..

Politics. “Public service” is always their alleged calling but when someone spends millions of their own dollars for a job that pays considerably LESS than that (according to their “tax returns”.. We can’t check the liberal Democrats on this, they are exempt from taxes and the AFFORDABLE health scare act, etc..) we have to smell a rat..

Politics appears upon its surface to be a dignified intellectual exercise but for the last sixty years, the left has turned it into a circus that habitually caters to the lowest common denominator in order to “get their way”. (“Their way” in brief: demand money for the “poor”, shave copious dollars from the pot for themselves and their friends, toss pennies to the “poor”, say that the program failed because of a “lack of funding”, begin the perverted process anew..)

When a politician speaks of the call for “public service” as their guide, as their motivation, it reminds us of a liberal claiming that wanting to do the “greater good” is what drives them.. (I find it revealing that so many of our politicians are lawyers.. Undignified, reprehensible..)

  2. They are willing to do anything for the “greater good” as long as it involves using someone else’s money to do it. Also, the “greater good” is defined by the emotional connection available to them in the moment… never is it connected to a principle or to a moral code. Well spoken, as always, Larry.

  3. “definitional inversion” theory, Great theory. I hope it is ok to spread this theory all over the web. We have to fight them word for word, and beat them at the game. Accuse them of things, fact or not, just like they do. Plant the seeds of doubt about them, their policies, and definitions just as they do to us. Keep up, the great work Larry.

  4. Another excellent observation and autopsy of the liberals and their (spoken/broken) views. I was furious when the Republicans folded! And I still am furious with them. They have no backbone and cower when a liberal raises his/her voice above a whisper. I am definitely going to cut out the paragraph on “definitional inversion” and hang it on my cork board. What a great definition of everything liberal! If I were a cartoonist, I would show a very large dagger dripping from the hand of a liberal standing over the carcass of an American. Because I question just how American can a liberal be if he is always keeping the workers down? Surely they have to realize they are like a cancer —— cancer kills its host, thereby killing itself!

    Who is paying for all the democare computer glitches? You and I. Why? Have you ever seen a contract that protects the government from over pricing and graft? Me neither!

  5. Whoops! I didn’t finish my thought about the dagger. Picture a dagger dripping dollar signs.

  6. Larry and family,

    Good stuff from everyone.

    Are the stock markets being propped -up by the Fed printing money each month ? This ‘stimulus’ type of activity can’t keep going on – there are two sides to a ” balance sheet ” ; but apparently no one seems to care !

    On a side note, the IRS has refunded over 110 billion dollars IN ERROR , and we should trust them to administer OWEbaamascare ?

    Now what could possibly go wrong with that ?!?!?

  7. A great piece, Larry! One of your more inspirational writings.

  8. Would you really trust the government to run your business?

  9. Another ” dumb question” . . . . . if Congress had NEVER raised the ‘debt ceiling’ , would we be in debt today ?

  10. “You can KEEP your doctor and your health insurance.”

    Was that just another sales pitch or a blatant LIE from OWEbaama ? Well, as it turns out, the WH knew back in 2010, that millions would lose their health coverage due to OWEbaamascare. Various estimates range from 42% to 80% would actually lose their coverage, and yet, OWEbaama continued his snake oil pitch.

    Guess his lackeys will contend that their boss knew NOTHING about the millions that would lose coverage. And since OWEbaama blames everyone else for his bad decisions, I suppose the new villain in this fiasco will be the insurance companies, because THEY are canceling policies ! The fact that these companies are following the law is insignificant to the Dems !

    On a side note, has anyone heard an explanation as to ‘ why’ and ‘how’ a Canadian company got the contract for the OWEbaamascare website , especially since there was no one bidding for it ? Was that LEGAL ?

    Just asking.

  11. Another ‘dumb’ question . . . . does the MSM understand how a dictator remains in power ?

    Dictators ‘control’ the weaponry ( ie: the military ) , they control the media, and they control the healthcare. Plus they continue the control by keeping the populace ‘poor and stupid ‘ . There are other areas, but these are the ‘biggies’.

    The MSM has reported on various aspects of the above , but haven’t linked them together to get the ‘big picture’ ! As a tiny example, they have reported on the educational test results in various disciplines , comparing our students vs other countries. We are losing , and yet they can’t see that a ‘dumbing-down’ is occurring. More citizens are on the dole, more are on welfare than are working “full time” . Does the term ‘poor and stupid’ enter the lexicon – apparently not to the MSM . Does the ‘take over’ of the healthcare system seem apparent to the MSM – apparently not. When the MSM falls in ‘lock step’ with OWEbaama, do they not see the folly of their ways – apparently not.

    Finally, when all of the above “controls ” are put into place – will the MSM understand their part in the transformation of a once great country – apparently not !

    I must confess – it was really more than ONE ‘dumb question ‘ !!

  12. Another “dumb question” . . . . . since the Dems claim that the failure of the OWEbaamascare website is due to the GOP opposition to OWEbaamascare , does that imply that the site would be running smoothly IF the GOP were not opposed to it ?!?

  13. Just another ” dumb question ” . . . . . if the old saying – “politics is a dirty business ” is correct , does it make any sense to be “politically ” correct ?

  14. Yup – it’s another “dumb question ” . . . . since Owebaama and his lackeys, and the web site contractors KNEW that the site wasn’t ready for ‘prime time’ , WHY did OWEbaama insist on launching it – did he really believe that ALL of us were stupid and that we would NEVER get to the truth ?

  15. Another ” dumb question ” . . . since most professions , such as doctors, teachers, accountants, engineers , etc. require specific qualifications, what are the qualifications for ” Community Organizer ” ?

  16. Another “dumb question ” . . . how many LIES must OWEbaama tell, before the LSM takes note – 50 ? 100 ? _ how many ???

  17. Just another ” dumb question ” . . . . Why has Boehner been caving to the Dems , does the WH have some ‘dirt’ on him, or is he becoming more RINO ?

  18. Well, JJ. I don’t have any answers for you but I do have four more questions for you:

    4 Simple Questions

    1. Back in 1961 people of color were called ‘Negroes.’ So how can the Obama ‘birth certificate’ state he is “African-American” when the term wasn’t even used at that time ?
    2. The birth certificate that the White House released lists Obama’s birth as August 4, 1961 & Lists Barack Hussein Obama as his father. No big deal, Right ? At the time of Obama’s birth, it also shows that his father is aged 25 years old, and that Obama’s father was born in “Kenya , East Africa “.
    This wouldn’t seem like anything of concern, except the fact that Kenya did not even exist until 1963, two whole years after Obama’s birth, and 27 years after his father’s birth. How could Obama’s father have been born in a country that did not yet Exist? Up and until Kenya was formed in 1963, it was known as the “British East Africa Protectorate”. (check it below)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenya_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenya)
    3. On the Birth Certificate released by the White House, the listed place of birth is “Kapi’olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital”.
    This cannot be, because the hospital(s) in question in 1961 were called “KauiKeolani Children’s Hospital” and “Kapi’olani Maternity Home”, Respectively.
    The name did not change to Kapi’olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital until 1978, when these two hospitals merged.
    How can this particular name of the hospital be on a birth certificate dated 1961 if this name had not yet been applied to it until 1978 ?

    Why hasn’t this been discussed in the major media ?

    4. Perhaps a clue comes from Obama’s book on his father. He states how proud he is of his father fighting in WW II. I’m not a math genius, so I may need some help from you. Barack Obama’s “birth certificate” says his father was 25 years old in 1961 when Obama was born. That should have put his father’s date of birth approximately 1936-if my math holds (Honest! I did That without a calculator!!!) Now we need a non-revised history book-one that hasn’t been altered to satisfy the author’s goals-to verify that WW II was basically between 1939 and 1945. Just how many 3 year olds fight in Wars? Even in the latest stages of WW II his father wouldn’t have been more than 9 years old. Does that mean that Mr. Obama is a liar, or simply chooses to alter the facts to satisfy his imagination or political purposes (still Obama, our president qualifies as a “liar”) ?

  19. Since the “dumb questions” have not elicited a single response, ( whether it be a smart or dumb one 🙂 ) , let’s try this one . . . since OWEbaama flat-out lied when he promised that ” if you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance, etc ” , and , since he is now lying in his attempt to change the original lies, and since OWEbaamascare will damage the economy, adds to the debt, has cost millions of jobs, millions will lose their healthcare plans, healthcare costs drastically rising , – isn’t this a good reason for OWEbaama to be impeached ?

  20. It is one good reason for impeachment amid dozens of others. But the real culprits are those we call our “Representatives” when they represent nothing other than getting re-elected and stuffing their pockets with money they have no right to take. They can’t get anything done since they are all sticking their hands in each other’s pockets, fondling one another for their brilliant ways of sticking it to America. Impeach is just a word their I.Q. doesn’t understand and they don’t bother to educate themselves for fear of having to use the word once they understand their culpability.

  21. I hope all of you someday get an E-mail entitled “Will she use these poster?” which will be Hillary’s downfall and possibly cause her to never receive the nomination. It is a story on Benghazi in pictures and shows Ambassador Christopher Stevens in the throws of pain coming from a cattle prod used in his groin. I sincerely hope she is dead meat when it comes to politics no matter how small the office!

  22. Another “dumb question ” . . . . a recent poll gave OWEbaama an APPROVAL rating of 39% – can you guess the average lQ of this group, especially after the lies, and the OWEbaamascare roll-out disaster ??

  23. Regarding OWEbaamascare , here’s another “dumb question ” . . . . . since OWQEbaama admitted that over 85 % of us had health insurance, how could he possibly justify destroying a good healthcare system for the sake of the remaining small pecentage that either chose not to have insurance, were self-insured, or were already on Medicare and Medicaid ?

  24. Another ” dumb question ” . . . . with all of the problems with the Healthcare.gov website, the Dems and the Liar in Chief have not used the term ” Obamacare” , they’re all using the term ” Affordable Care Act ” – so , who gave the marching order to change the terminology , and was it done so that when the ACA fails , their ‘boy’ won’t have his name linked with the failure ??

  25. Oxymoron of the day – ” Progressivism “

  26. You guessed it , here’s another ” dumb question ” . . . . since the ‘real’ unemployment number is closer to 20 % than it is to 7.2 % , WHY does the gov’t. issue hundreds of thousands of worker permits to foreigners, some of whom are terrorists or illegals ??

  27. Bumper sticker of the day :

    “Democracy is NOT a spectator sport “

  28. Another “dumb question” . . . . does the following ‘ dumb idea ‘ have any merit : suppose an alternative is offered for the ACA, and it is called , for lack of a better name, the ” GOP Healthcare Plan “, and only registered republicans can can join it. However , the funding for each plan will only come from members of each plan, ( similar to mutual insurance policies ) and not from the US treasury. Therefore, anyone can escape the ACA by registering as a republican ; but must stay with the plan of their choice for a minimum of 5 years, so that if the GOP plan is doing much better than the ACA, someone can’t be switching to take advantage of better experience ratios.

    So, for the Dems that believe that OWEbaamascare is the better choice, then THEY should support it. In other words ” put your money where your mouth is “.

    If you had to choose betweenthe two plans, which would you choose?

  29. Want another “dumb question ” . . . . . Pelosi and other Libs claim that it is a ‘good thing’ that the gov’t. issues welfare checks. because those checks are used to buy things, and therefore that is ‘good’ for the economy. If that is the case, would it also be a good idea to double the number on welfare because that would put twice as much cash into the economy ??

  30. I was wondering how many US citizens ( with an lQ above room temp. ) actually believed that OWEbaama really ‘apologized’ for OWEbaamacsare .

  31. Just another “dumb question ” . . . who is paying for all of the ‘fixing ‘ of the OWEbaamascare website – the contractors or the taxpayers ??

  32. Another “dumb question ” . . . . how can the gov’t. simultaneously INCREASE the debt and DECREASE the deficit ?

  33. Is this another “dumb question ” . . . .. when will the Liberals fully comprehend that OWEbaamascare CANNOT work ?

  34. DQ # 39 . . . . . Now, do the Liberals understand why OWEbaama is AKA the ” Liar -In – Chief ” ??

  35. Not dumb at all. It’s just the liberals who are too prideful to admit being wrong!

  36. Or, are they too ‘stupid’ to realize that they are WRONG ?

  37. DQ #40 . . . . how can OWEbaama promise to LOWER the cost of healthcare by RAISING the cost of medical devices ??

  38. DQ #41 . . .. with so much ‘anti-Christian’ activity taking place, how soon will the ” Hail Mary ” pass be outlawed in the public school system ??

  39. Could have knocked me over with a feather. Our local newspaper published a full section of 4 sheets honoring the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address with facts, quizzes and comparison to other speakers who droned on for up to 2 hours! November 19, 1865, President Abraham Lincoln gave a two minute, 272 word address which resonates through the ages in its simplicity and yet powerfully describes affirmation of God creating all men equal and our country being God instilled in our lives as sublime, this new burst of freedom to end the Civil War.

  40. Richard,

    Apparently Abe was aware of KISS ( keep it simple, stupid ) or he really did have just a small piece of paper !

  41. DQ #42 . . . . will OWEbaama EVER realize that Hamid Karzai is playing him for a fool ?

  42. DQ #43 . . . . can you name just ONE commodity ( or service ) that has not had a price increase due to ethanol ?

  43. DQ #44 . . . . . are pro-abortionists really unhappy that their own parents were not pro-abortion ?!?

  44. I really like your DQ#44………….and had the same question in my head, but never anybody came around to where I could ask them. I was just reading about the cost of “free” wind energy and the toxic lake China has created just so England can say they are “saving”, although there is a tax non-tax added to each British bill almost the equivalent of what the Government says it is “Free as the wind”! What a crock!

  45. DQ #45 . . . . since China is a major polluter , are we therefore, by extension, also responsible in part for that pollution, by importing massive quantities of Chinese products ?

  46. In some ways, yes. We have become a consumer of everything and seem to fix nothing, preferring to buy new. I drive an 89 Chevy pickup not because I can’t afford new, I just prefer to save for a rainy day or put my money to work. I have also become a looker for the made in China tag and put it back. I sure wish there were more “Made In America” tags. America can still build the best if they put their mind to it. But we also can keep it clean, we just need to wipe that snotty nose of the EPA and get control of our government to stop the hemorrhage of jobs and money leaving the country. Politicians need to be near extinct so we can get workers in the government and get new ideas and back to our Founding Fathers dream for a self sustaining populace.

  47. Richard,

    Agreed, especially getting rid of “lifer” politicians via term limits.
    How can we improve our exports , along with reducing unemployment , unless we have BALANCED trade agreements ? Does anyone really believe that residents in third world countries can afford to buy our products ? We will continue to lose, as long as our imports exceed the exports.

    Either you don’t do much shopping, OR , you must be putting a lot of stuff ‘back’ ! 🙂

    BTW, hang in there with that pickup truck !

  48. DQ #46 . . . . how many of the young adults who voted for OWEbaama are now beginning to realize that they got ‘screwed’ notably by OWEbaamascare , since THEY will be forced to pay excessive premiums for their so-called healthcare ??

  49. DQ #47 . . . . how many more LIES must OWEbaama tell before the majority get tired of his tactics ?

  50. DQ #48 . . . . As more and more problems with the ACA website emerge, and as more experts have testified as to it’s inherent errors, how can OWEbaama constantly claim ” I did not know ” ?

  51. DQ #49 . . . . . now that Oprah is playing the ‘race card’ , will she join -up with $harpton and Jack$on to form ” The Three Raceketeers ” ??

  52. DQ #50 . . . . So, when someone is arrested , should they be able to employ the ” OWEbaama excuse ” by claiming ” I did not know ” or ” I was not informed ‘directly’ ” ??

  53. DQ #51 . . . . One of ” The Three RACEketeers ” ( Oprah ) gets the Medal of Freedom , another one of ” The Three RACEketeers ” ( $harpton ) gets invited to the WH as an ‘influential ‘ media person, but the third ( Jack$on ) gets snubbed !! Will this cause a schism within the ranks of “The Three RACEketeers ” , or with OWEbaama ?

  54. DQ #52 . . . . OWQEbaama has wasted over 100 million dollars with unnecessary use of Air Force ONE . OWEbaamascare will end up with a one trillion dollar waste of tax dollars. Is there not at least ONE person out there who can explain to OWEbaama , ( who claims that he wants to help the poor ) that the above wasteful spending could have REALLy helped the poor ??

  55. DQ #53 . . . . When the gov’t. sells off the balance of it’s GM stock, it will result in a loss to taxpayers of $10 billion . Right now, GM is sitting on about $26.8 billion in CASH . Therefore, should GM give back $10 million of it to cover the loss on the stock sale ? And, BTW , since leaving bankruptcy, GM has NOT paid any federal income taxes !

  56. DQ #54 . . . Since 56% of us are opposed to OWEbaamascare, and since many of the IT experts claim that the Healthcare.gov website cannot be fixed, and many experts claim that the ACA cannot work, and will not work, and just for the heck of it – add OWEbaama’s DISapproval rating of over 60 % , WHY do the DEMS continue to promote the disastrous ACA ??

  57. DQ #55 . . . Prior to OWEaamascare, the trial lawyers were opposed to tort reform (for obvious reasons ). Since OWEbaama really wants a nationalized ‘single payer system’ for healthcare, do these same lawyers think they will be able to file lawsuits with wild abandon as they have done in the past ??

  58. DQ #56 . . . Since Iran is dripping with oil , do they really want the world to believe that they heed to enrich uranium in order to provide energy for their country ??

  59. heed should be need , obviously 🙂

  60. DQ #57 . . . . OWEbaamascare has caused policy cancellations, higher premiums, higher deductibles, unnecessary or reduced coverages, job losses, switching full-time jobs to part-time, doctors leaving their practice, reduced income for doctors and providers, etc., etc., – therefore , why would anyone be in favor of this disaster ??

  61. DQ #58 . . . . The WH has admitted that it knew 3 yrs ago that 76,000 health insurance policies would be canceled as a result of OWEbaamascare , therefore, how can OWEbaama NOT be called a LIAR by claiming that “you could keep your doctor, and your insurance , etc. “

  62. JJ,

    Proud of you for carrying the flambeau..


  63. Larry,

    Thanks. But as you can see, I couldn’t elicit many dumb answers to the dumb questions. Guess your readers are too ‘smart’ for that ! 🙂
