Lest you think I’m being too harsh with the “moron” description, behold the products of a Marxist/Socialist education system as they deny civil rights hero Rep John Lewis the opportunity to speak in Atlanta.

These people give mind-numbed robots a bad name.

More updates to come.

At least that’s my take on Vanderleun’s excellent piece titled The People of the Mud, which explores the psychology of those useful idiots populating the Occupy Wall Street crowd. Or would the proper description be pathology?

A small sample:

“Yearning for the mud” in America is a compulsion that comes over people when they have, for complex reasons, a need to immerse themselves in self-degradation. It’s usually a mix of drink, drugs, and weird sex until the soul is obliterated by the abused flesh. Why? Hard to say but it is often the case that, when they look at themselves, they can’t stand what they see.

This obliteration of the soul and the abuse of the flesh is one of the central tenets in many of our post-modern, secular lifestyle religions. For them the “signo” of “In hoc signo vinces” is the full body tattoo project, an earlobe plug, and the multiple facial piercings with a coke nail as an accessory.

Most people try some of these things for a time in their youth, but soon grow out of it when age and experience get the upper hand. Others grow out of it via deep psychoanalysis and a few trips to the rehab clinic. Still others are simply killed by it, their lives bracketed by dates that are far too close together.

Many, however, never kick this yearning for the mud and were, in the past, thought of as “perverts” but are now more kindly seen as “differently minded.” Seeking the safety of number they now live in those urban sinkholes of the soul they laud as “enclaves of Alternative Lifestyles.”

Please do take the time to read the whole thing.

And pray for those afflicted souls who wallow in such an amoral state.

Having experienced what Vanderleun describes while pursuing the rock and roll lifestyle, his words hold a truthful resonance to me. The youths in OWS simply want to be part of a larger movement, to feel like they contributed to “something.” Unfortunately, their professors have sold them snake oil in the form of a wrongful cause. Heck, most of them have no idea why they are there except for the party and the debauchery, utterly clueless as to how they are being co-opted and used by the very government they should be protesting in the first place.

Note to OWS: If you want to have a TEA Party, you can still join ours. But please, be sure to bathe and clean up after yourself. We don’t leave our protests in a state of disarray, in case you haven’t noticed.

The People of the Mud will now be added to the Prime page.

Every now and again I’m handed an opportunity to participate in a worthy cause. This week, my good friend Russ, from the blog That’s Right, fellow member of the #VRWC and outstanding patriot, asked if I would be interested in contributing to and helping spread the word about his latest cause.

The way I see it, any day I can lend a hand in defeating entrenched liberal politicians hell-bent on destroying our great country is a good day in my book.

Hey Russ, old buddy, count me in!

So, what’s going on?

It seems there’s an election being held THIS November 8th, 2011 and we can help save  some folks from another session of liberal abuses.

Here’s the flyer from Russ:

“Donate $16 to end 16 years of Democrat Rule in Old Bridge!”

Wherever you are, the march of liberalism everywhere else contributes to our national woe.

Wherever you are, somewhere else there is a liberal politician being groomed for higher office.

Wherever you are, there are good Conservatives pushing back against the tide in their own backyards.

This year, in an off-off election, we here in the Swamps of New Jersey are doing just that.

We could use your help.

For 16 consecutive years liberal Democrats have controlled the Township of Old Bridge, a large municipality in Middlesex County, and used it like their own personal piggy bank.

  • They have built a staggering $8 million budget deficit;
  • They sell Township land to Township utility authorities to plug gaping budget holes;
  • They have no other ideas on increasing revenue other than increasing taxes; and
  • This June, they passed an unfunded, lifetime health care ordinance that reduces the number of required years of service from 25 to 15 years, which means Old Bridge will foot the entire bill employee health care for individuals who work for a total of 25 years in the system. The cost of this bill is astronomical.

We can win this year. We can turn the tide of liberalism here in Old Bridge and thereafter, Middlesex County and beyond.

We’re asking for $16 to help us do that. $16 to help fellow Conservatives in New Jersey save a Township and a State from California’s fate.

Will you donate $16 to end 16 years of Democrat Rule in Old Bridge?

We’ll be here for you when you need us. It’s a Jersey thing.

Thank you America.

Old Bridge Republicans.

2624 Rt. 516W, Old Bridge, NJ 08857 ~ 732-952-5120 ~ www.oldbridgerepublicans.com

If just 1,000 people donated $16, it would go a long way toward dislodging the liberal machine in Old Bridge and sending a strong message to the establishment in New Jersey.

Someone once said that all politics is local. Well, here’s your chance to help some conservatives get a foothold in a long standing liberal district.

Will you join me in lending a hand?

Much obliged.

Robo-log: Wednesday 8-24-11

So, here I am with a pulled or torn Achilles tendon, lying in bed with an ice pack under the heel. Yea, I know, I should get it examined to be sure no other damage has occurred. Maybe I’ll go tomorrow, if it doesn’t improve today.

But, that’s not the reason for this post. This post is about the next election and how the TEA Party is being vilified by the media. I know, you’re saying to your monitor right now “bot, you don’t watch the liberal media, how could you know they are painting the TEA Party as wanting to take away grandma’s Social Security payments and Medicare?” Well, I’ll tell you; because a close family member watches the MSM and soaks up every helpful, hateful word. He then decides to share that information with me in the form of useful tidbits of knowledge sprinkled into our casual conversations.

“How did you hurt your foot?” He asks.

“I have no idea. I woke up, got out of bed Sunday morning and as soon as I hit the floor it started barking at me. By the time I went to bed yesterday evening, I couldn’t put any weight on it at all without excruciating pain.”  I replied. “Last night, I was hopping around the house on my one good foot. I figure that was an accident waiting to happen.”

‘Have you made a doctor’s appointment?”

“Not yet, I figured I’d better get some crutches before I tried to go anywhere.”

“Well, here they are. I hurt my leg a while back and the boss on the job told the company I hurt it at work so the government would pay for them.”

“Thanks, I appreciate the loan. They’re going to be a big help. How have you and the Missus been getting along since you both retired?” I asked.

“Doing good, trying to survive on our Social Security and pensions. That’s all going away if the TEA Party gets their way.” He added, helpfully.

Nice. He’s furnishing me with a means of locomotion and now, armed with the knowledge of their illicit procurement, I feel mildly guilty for using them. Adding to the ironic, hypocritical, monologue he takes the opportunity to share the latest MSM talking points: The ludicrous idea that the TEA Party want to take away his Social Security payments. I just looked at him, knowing better than to engage. No point in arguing with a liberal, much less a family member who’s trying to help me out in a bad situation. Besides, I know he’s trying to goad me into an argument and I’m in no mood to play. He is, unfortunately, just another blind, lemming Democrat. (Was that redundant?)

I share this story not to complain of a strained tendon, or of a semi-strained family relationship. I tell you this story to let you know what kind of mindset we are up against. It’s a mindset born of Generational Training. It’s a thought process devoid of thought, that still believes every drooling word from mongrel lap dogs like Chris Mathews or Maxine Waters or from Obama himself. They are the true mind-numbed robots, all too willing to believe the lies and exaggerations, regurgitated and beak-fed to them, the liberal Children of Government, unable, in their minds, to fend for themselves and utterly convinced the TEA Party wants your aged parents or grandmother homeless, without health care and barely subsisting on a diet of Alpo and crackers.

BALDERDASH!

The TEA Party is about less government, namely, less Federal Government in our lives. We don’t want to take your Social Security. The government already stole it from you without your permission or consent and, unreported by the likes of the MSM, we think you deserve to get it back, as promised. Nor do we think the poor, or disadvantaged should be forgotten. We just disagree in principle on the definitions of poor and disadvantaged. We don’t believe people on food stamps and welfare should be driving around in cars more expensive than the citizens’ that paid for them or living in houses furnished with big screen televisions and broad band internet. Those are luxury items and should be reserved for the people WHO WORK FOR THEM!

My relative has yet to realize his party left him long ago.

The TEA Party is the working class!

The TEA Party is Middle America, trying to salvage what is left of our country before it is torn apart from the inside by a wanna-be two-bit dictator and his commie cohorts.

We’re tired of politicians buying votes with our stolen money in the name of some fictitious war on poverty while they do nothing more than increase the entitlement mentality and lining their pockets with the excess.

We also think that countless illegal immigrants should not have their hands in that cookie jar either, a jar they only take from and have never contributed to.

We are tired of bailouts and corporate takeovers, of crony capitalism, of commies in congress and socialistic presidents and class warfare and of being told to shut up.

I will never shut up. You can pry this keyboard from my cold dead fingers because even though some of those zombie liberals know not what they do, they need the opportunity to learn.

Now, where’s the ice –

and the Jim Beam?

Why the Beam, you ask?

Well, aside from the obvious need for pain killing, medicinal purposes, today, 8/25/11, marks the second year anniversary of Robo-blogging. ~ Cheers!

Here come the judge: “More freedom means less government.”

Which reminds me of an Automotivator I did a while back…

Thanks to Libertarian Buddha for the email pointing me to The Libertarian Buddhist.

Imagine that.    :)

 

A few days ago, I posted a video of CEO Steve Wynn railing on the Obama administration for their socialist, anti-capitalist policies. One commenter expressed his disappointment that Mr. Wynn didn’t give any examples of how Obama’s policies are contributing to and causing the continued economic decline.

Lucky for us, iainswife, who blogs over at Shout First, Ask Questions Later and is a contributor to the fabulous Potluck blog points us to a great article in the American Spectator that provides many facts to back up Mr. Wynn’s conference call assessment of President Obama’s socialist policies.

As to what I described in the comment thread as “uncertainty,” my good friend The CL from The Classic Liberal helpfully pointed me to Robert Higgs, who, in 1997 wrote a paper coining the term “Regime Uncertainty” to describe how the socialist policies of the New Deal had a chilling effect on the recovery from the Great Depression. Those similar policies, now employed and expanded by Obama, are having the same predictably disastrous effect today.

Hopefully these links will get you on the path to understanding the effects of an over-expanding federal government, the  incremental destruction of property rights that go along with larger government, the intended transformation of our capitalist economic system to a socialist one and ultimately, an understanding of the loss of liberty for the whole of any nation that implements socialistic policies and programs.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

C. S. Lewis, God in the Dock, p. 292.

Our Constitution was not instituted to save us from ourselves. Our Constitution was written, mainly, to protect us from our government. It’s time we remembered that and elect people who understand it as well. The alternative is not one worth savoring.

The Obama administration’s policies are killing job creation by scaring the job creators. [On purpose ~ ‘bot]

From The Blaze:

Publicly-traded companies hold quarterly conference calls where investors are given updates on the state of the company and often hear about positive plans for the future.

Just yesterday, Wynn Resorts (WYNN) CEO Steve Wynn was speaking on a company conference call when he unleashed on President Obama, ranting about what Wynn sees as anti-business, socialist policies that are frightening companies as well as customers:

Steve Wynn:

“…I’m saying it bluntly. That this administration is the greatest wet blanket to business and progress and job creation in my lifetime. And I can prove it. And I could spend the next three hours giving you examples of all of us in this marketplace that are frightened to death about all the new regulations, our healthcare costs escalate, regulations coming from left and right uh, a president that seems, you know, that keep using the word redistribution…

 

…those of us who have business opportunities and the capital to do it are going to sit in fear of the president [snip] …the guy keeps making speeches about redistribution and maybe we aught to do something to businesses that don’t invest, they’re holding too much money. You know we haven’t heard that kind of talk except from pure socialists.

Everybody’s afraid of the government. There’s no need soft peddling it. It’s the truth. It. Is. The. Truth. …

You’ll want to hear the whole thing:

More audio at The Blaze.

UPDATE: Professor William Jacobson comments at Legal Insurrection.

UPDATE II: Bob Belvedere gets all lathered up and offers Mr. Wynn a bit of advice and us a few more links.
Memeorandom has thread as well.

Our president thinks he’s a hypnotist, and why wouldn’t he? He obviously put half the population under some kind of spell to convince them to vote for him. How else was he able to get all those folks to cast aside the glaringly obvious truth of his hatred for America and stated desire to change it into a communistic style of government?

Every other word he utters is a contradiction of the one before or a set-up for the lie to come after. Who in their right mind can listen to absolutely preposterous, convoluted notions like “job-killing tax cuts” and come away with the assurance that the man has our best interest at heart? Those are the words spoken by a person who knows he is doing wrong and will boldly beat you over the head with the fact that he’s doing it. He thinks he’s the guy that can sell igloos to Eskimos or the Brooklyn Bridge to a New Yorker.

He also wants US to believe that 80% of us want to pay more taxes but we aren’t buying, Mister President. A growing majority of US knows you for the charlatan you are.

Barack Hussein Obama is the epitome of everything the Democratic Party and the Progressive/Communist/Socialist elite have been striving for since Woodrow Wilson occupied the office Obama continues to disgrace. Compare Marxist ideology to the modern Democrat Party ideals and you will find similarities too numerous to ignore.

Barack Hussein Obama is not your typical tax and spend democrat either. He’s much, much worse on an exponential scale. He’s a T & S D on steroids with nefarious ulterior motives who has the cooperation of a compliant media and a plethora of crony politicians eager to give him more power.

I’ve said before, and I think it becomes more apparent every day, Barack Hussein Obama is committing treason against the USA by using American social programs against the very economic engine that made those programs possible in the first place; all in order to overwhelm the system with ever increasing demands and thereby collapsing the economy and ushering in a new type of government. This method was conceived by Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven and is known as the Cloward-Piven Strategy. Its stated goal is to achieve political and social change through orchestrated crisis. It is out and out economic warfare and is especially dangerous when combined with the Communist/Socialist agenda exposed by Iowa Rep. Curtis Bowers. It is an evil that strikes directly at the heart of natural law, liberty and America as envisioned by our founding fathers and must be passionately opposed wherever it is discovered.

For Liberty, ‘bot.

Thanks to Curmudgeon of Political Clown Parade for the outstanding Photoshop™.

Conservatives should be wary of nominating just “anyone.” We need to carefully select who will run against Oblahblah else we could end up with another Bush who will lead us in the same progressive direction, just taking the scenic route. Or worse, not nominate a candidate conservative enough to defeat Oblather at all.

Spellchek has a great essay on what it will take to save the country and a few musings on the establishment. Here’s a sample:

Capitalism must have a failure mechanism. It’s the only way it works. Bailouts don’t apply. Government intervention and market manipulation don’t either.You can’t experience the rewards of capitalism and the opportunities it provides without the risk of failure present. That’s the check and balance to keep the free market honest. No bailouts, no stimulus, no artificial interest rate manipulation, no printing money, no picking winners and losers. None of it. In other words, none of the Obama agenda can be tolerated.

He doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to the RINO GOP contenders either. I highly recommend you read the whole thing.

This Independence Day weekend while we are having fun at cookouts and gatherings we would do well to keep in mind the sacrifices the Founders made in order to create the US of A and think about what we should do to save her.

God Bless America.

Don’t you think with Obama’s economy, those new job seekers are going to need all the help they can get? Aren’t there more important issues for a federal judge to be concerned with?

Apparently not.

Chief U.S. District Judge Fred Biery’s order against the Medina Valley Independent School District also forbids students from using specific religious words including “prayer” and “amen.”

Peter Morrison is fired up about it in his latest report:

Just last week, a federal tyrant threatened the Texas Senate with grounding all flights in Texas if the anti-groping bill was passed. Yesterday another federal tyrant, an unelected appointed-for-life federal judge named Fred Biery, banned any and all prayer at the Medina Valley ISD graduation ceremonies.

He went as far as to order students and administration that they could not use words like “prayer,” or “bow their heads,” or “amen” upon penalty of jail time for contempt of court.

Folks, it doesn’t get any more outrageous than this. There’s only one real solution: civil disobedience by students at the Medina Valley ISD graduation, followed by interposition and nullification of the judge’s order by the governor. The sovereign state should interpose itself between the tyrant and its citizens to prevent abuses of the Constitution, and nullify this judge’s unconstitutional order. It’s the only solution that preserves the students’ rights in time for their graduation.

Rick Perry talks a good talk about protecting state’s rights. This is where the rubber meets the road. Governor Perry should order state troopers and other law enforcement personnel to protect the administration and students of Medina Valley ISD from arrest. Furthermore, this federal judge ought to be tried for unlawful assaults and threats. If I illegally threatened to kidnap and jail someone for praying in public, that would be a crime, and it’s the same crime even if it’s done by an unelected tyrant in a black robe.

Take action:

Please send a fax to Governor Perry asking him to use every resource of the state to protect these students’ civil rights:

You know, last time I checked, the First Amendment provides us with freedom of religion, to worship in the manner of our choosing, not freedom from religion. No one in the graduation audience will be forced to pray. I promise. If you don’t want to, then don’t. Go get a beverage or a souvenir. Or you could just stand there and politely keep your yap shut for a moment. The Muslim terrorists in Gitmo have more religious freedom than those on the left would allow our students.

They don’t hate any God. The left hates the Christian God.
