Ten cents more a day!

The Outrageous Liberal Pundit says:

Samuel Gompers knew the callousness of mind and the darkness of soul that defined the Radical Right Wing back in his day and we know that not much has changed in our own day . . . the words spoken by Samuel Gompers back then are just as applicable today as they ever were  . . .  because neither good nor evil ever changes!

The One Percent was just as spiteful toward the Forty-Seven Percent back in Sam Gompers’ day as it is our own day and this is a lesson that everyone who ever goes to a poll to cast a vote in an election ought to write in indelible ink on their own hearts, minds and souls.

That privileged hungry savage lion wearing the royal robes of the rich right wing elitists still roams the countryside searching for the unfortunate poor whom it may emasculate, eviscerate and . . . devour!

And no amount of revisionism . . . no amount of posturing and posing . . . no amount of lying . . . no amount of trying to deflect the real issue . . . no amount of projectionism . . . nothing is ever going to change the fact that today’s contemporary version of radical conservatism is a devouring beast that knows nothing of compassion or mercy and which will devour even its own kin if cornered.

Definition of “Projectionism”: The way I use this word is to suggest that many Righties will try to suggest that their own inadequacies and shortcomings are really not their own but are typical of someone else . . . usually their arch adversaries, the Liberals. When I use the word, “Projectionism” in this context I am saying that Righties tend to ignore their oun faults or even to deny their own faults and try to convince everyone who will listen that all fault lies with anyone who is different than they are or who disagree with them in any substantive manner on virtually limitless subjects and ideas.

Freedom for all or freedom for none!

Freedom For Everyone Or Freedom For Nobody!

Freedom For Everyone Or Freedom For Nobody!

 ( Friday, September 19, 2014 ) – – – I believe it was Susan B. Anthony who once said, “I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires.”

In the political arena I have heard more Republicans and other Right Wingers declaring not only that they know very well what God wants them to do but I have also heard them declaring that what God wants them to do is what God wants everybody else to do too.

In my mind there is something inherently wrong with one political faction trying to impose their idea of the Will of God onto another.

That – – in my mind – – is the inherent flaw in today’s brand of Conservative thinking – – and most especially that brand of Conservative thinking ordinarily and popularly referred to  – – usually erroneously in my opinion – – as “Christian” Conservatism.

I am something like Susan B. Anthony in this suspicion – – this mistrust if you will of our modern brand of Conservatism – – because I have a natural repulsion to being told that I must accept certain political ideas because those political ideas are aligned with somebody else’s religious beliefs.

This kind of admixture of religion and politics for the advantage of one political ideology over another is not only repulsive to me because it offends both my religious and moral sensibilities in what I perceive to be it’s inherent desire to have one ideology dominate another – – but also because it seems to me to be dangerous to the very precepts of a democratic system of governance.

I firmly believe that Liberals – – as well as Independents – – and everybody else in These United States of America should have complete freedom to pursue their own ideas of Life, Liberty and The Pursuit of Happiness just the same as the Conservatives or anybody else and that the desires of one faction should never be allowed in our democratic form of government to dictate every detail of how others should be privileged to live out their own lives.

I also believe that Conservatism – – as it is constituted and as it operates in this time in which we all now live – – is totally and diametrically opposed to freedom for everybody unless such freedom is allowed and maintained on their terms alone.

If this exclusiveness of political privilege were to be allowed to become the accepted norm, then I believe the party pressing their beliefs onto the backs and shoulders of all others would constitute more of a dictatorship than it would a democratic form of government and in my opinion this state of affairs should – – must – – never be allowed to prevail here in America.

That is why I am firmly convinced that today’s brand of Conservatism serves nothing and no one except themselves and their big money benefactors who seem to me to have visions of ruling everything and everybody from their lofty perch at the top of the fiscal food chain at the expense of everything and everybody who are not as privileged and wealthy as themselves.

Fruitless Enterprise

THE RIGHT WING HANGS ONTO THEIR FANTASIES

THE RIGHT WING HANGS ONTO THEIR FANTASIES


“Over the course of many years I have discovered one thing if I have discovered nothing else . . . It is totally useless . . . totally fruitless . . . almost totally impossible to convince Right Wing Conservatives to buy into such ridiculous things as facts and common sense reasoning. I have discovered that the more you try to reason with them, the harder and more stubbornly they cling to their fantasies.” (John Liming)

Be not ensnared in your despairing times!

Beware The Right Wing Snare!

Beware The Right Wing Snare!

“At every crisis in one’s life, it is absolute salvation to have some sympathetic friend to whom you can think aloud without restraint or misgiving.” ―Woodrow Wilson

Commentary by John:  “And I think it is essential that if you wish to express the depth of your feelings . . . your “True” feelings . . . you need to make sure the person listening is not a radical right wing conservative because if it is I think you have lost all advantage from the first word uttered.”

Beware the Radical Rightie with the broad smile, the shiny perfect teeth and the outstretched hand because . . . most of the time I believe they want something from you rather than being there to offer something to you. (Lessons learned the hard way.)

Learning from Right Wing wisdom!

By John

If you are interested in learning how dumb, absurd or asinine or ignorant the Liberal mindset is then you really need to be reading every radical right wing website you can click on to.

If you are interested in learning anything else then you really do not need to be wasting your time on radical right wing websites because I don’t believe there is much of anything else there!

Conspiracy Nuts May Have It Right After All

 

7054833979_6ab30ca976_z

Some things are so glaringly obvious sometimes that it is really easy to simply overlook them or to gloss over them or to ignore them completely.

All these so-called “Conspiracies” that some of the more rabid Righties are always complaining about and calling for investigations about fall into that category.

I’m talking about such nonsense as “The IRS Scandal,” “The Benghazi Scandal,” and all the rest of the “Scandals” the Right Wing Extremists like to keep going over and over and over and getting the same answers to.

I have concluded . . . after listening to the complaints of the Right for all these years that there is, indeed, a scandal after all . . . and it is a big one!

The real “Scandal” in American Politics today is the continuing well-orchestrated and obviously well-funded efforts by the Right Wing and their allies to confuse Americans everywhere into accepting some cockamamie and obscenely ridiculous idea that President Obama is some kind of inept, inefficient and even corrupt scoundrel of some kind.

The political laundry of a significant portion of The American Radical Right Political Wing is so despoiled and dirtied by years of accumulated ideological defecation that I doubt it is possible ever to get it clean enough for general acceptance again.

That’s where the “Real” Scandal lies and I wish somebody would open a series of investigations into that!

Republican Hawks Fly Again On Iraq!

Believe it or not there are Republicans who would rather forget the Bush years and there are even more Republicans who keep themselves in more or less a state of denial about what they did about (with) (in) Iraq.

Some of them cannot resist the temptation to take wing again on any available media and push for deeper U.S. involvement in a conflict that was apparently destined for failure from the very beginning because much of U.S. involvement was based on – – – lies.

Remember folks, what you are reading here represents what I believe is the most accurate picture of The American Right Wing that can be drawn:
