In Defense of Hypocrisy
Think about this: Civilization requires a little bit of . . . polish. Let's call it polish, even though I used "hypocrisy" to get your attention. Just because something is real and "honest" doesn't mean we have to stick it out there. Being civilized is not being vulgar.
A friend of mine said that anyone who is trying to do the right thing is going to be accused of hypocrisy. Yeah. Just because you're not perfect doesn't mean you shouldn't take a dim view of evil. This is kind of the Leave it to Beaver deal. Maybe that family didn't exactly represent the average American family, but they did represent the ideal. And at the time we thought it was good to put the ideal out there, rather than the most vulgar just 'cause it's real. You want reality? Don't watch TV.
Let's do this the Leany on Life way and sneak up on it from an angle that makes no sense.
One time we were getting training on the new company Bill of Materials database—the system that managed our inventory and manufacturing and purchasing. It kept track of how much materials cost and when to order them and . . . you know, the basic MRP system that companies use. The guy doing the training said he was doing the same training in . . . someplace in Trashcanistan, I can't remember, and someone asked "Where do you put in the bribes?"
We got a laugh out of that, then one guy in the group observed that bribery happens everywhere, but in America everyone knows it's wrong.
This guy grew up in Louisiana. You know the deal, if you want to leave the United States for a weekend you can go to Louisiana. They have a different view of the Rule of Law down there—namely, it doesn't exist. You do what you can get away with and the law consists of who you know. In the States we like to have everyone under The Law and no one above The Law and . . . you know, that whole deal. I like to think we do things that way in this country, but I'm not so naïve that I believe none of that corruption happens here.
But we're civilized. Even the people who do it have enough respect for the Rule of Law that they at least try to pretend they aren't engaged in that crap.
That brings us to Barack Obama.
He doesn't even pretend any more. He just blatantly violates the law—and then he brags that he's going to do it some more.
I'm not twisting his words or mis-characterizing them, Obama actually says it all the time. "I will act on my own without Congress."
You remember the first few Harry Potter books. No one would admit to being a supporter of Voldemort. You had suspicions, but everyone would vehemently deny any accusations. Toward the last books they dropped the veneer. They openly admitted they were evil.
One more aside. If it's so cotton picking important that he has to break the law to do it, how come he didn't start to work on it in any of the other six years he's been in charge?
You remember my parable about the evil man going through a divorce who hurt his own children just to punish his wife. That's what Obama is doing with the children and the border. The Crybaby in Chief isn't getting his own way, so he is putting children through Hell to force "Immigration Reform."
You're not surprised. He's done it before. This is the exact same thing as when he cancelled air shows and White House tours in his little hissy fit over the budget. He didn't give crap one that it inconvenienced and hurt families and children, because he was trying to punish the Republicans and force them to give in to his childish demands.
Here's a news flash! Liberals are insane.
I've said it over and over again. There is no image that more accurately depicts Barack Obama than that of a petulant child. He's got no grasp any issues more complex than his bowl of Cheerios. He's a spoiled little brat who throws a fit whenever he doesn’t get his own way. He cries about everything. He can't take any criticism. He's just infantile in all of the negative ways you think of that word.
Everybody knows this. You can't watch him operate and not wonder where the adults are that are supposed to be running the show.
But some moron called up Michael Medved and said he had figured out the dog whistle. Calling Obama infantile and juvenile was . . . I am not making this up—you can't concoct crazy like this . . . it was just another way of calling him "Boy."
Liberals aren't misguided. They aren't mistaken or viewing the world differently or thinking on a different wavelength.
They are completely freaking out of their minds insane.
You remember my brilliant treatise on the President's salary. (In fact, it was the last brilliant thing I wrote, since it was the last thing anyone ever left a comment on, and that was more than a year ago.) The President's salary has nothing to do with his lifestyle.
The context of the discussion was when Obama (Prais-ed be His Holy Name Forever) magnanimously offered
to return five percent—Five Whole Percent!—of his salary to the United States Treasury.
This after he had stolen more than ten times that amount from my salary.
I first became aware of this concept years ago when the Clintons left office (stealing the very furniture on their way out) and were whining about how broke they were. And then they bought a 1.7 million dollar mansion.
You know the deal. You and I can buy what we have money to buy. For people like the Obamas and the Clintons, what their balance sheet says has very little to do with the products and services they have access to. If they wanted to go to Europe for a month or have a cabin in the woods or go on a cruise or drive a Ferrari or eat at a fancy restaurant or send their kid to an elite college, or . . . just spitballing here . . . buy a huge mansion, they could.
So here's the bottom line:
Hillary was dead broke? What difference at that point did it make?!
Oh . . . and the year that the Clintons were "dead broke" they earned
over twelve million dollars. Oh to be that broke . . .
Bill Clinton did an interview for Meet the Press where he mentioned this.
They used to call him Slick Willy, but he's slicker now than ever. You know the deal—Bill Clinton is evil. But between contrasting him with Obama and the time he's spent polishing his act, he's able to come across a lot better than he used to. He's smart enough now to kiss his wife's ample hind end and use phrases like "we've been very blessed."
But he's still an insufferable whining partisan liar. The cheap shots he takes at Cheney show that his hundreds of millions of dollars can't buy him class. And he plays the democrat trick of knowing the parallel universe present that might have been, talking about what a paradise Iraq would be if we'd never followed his wife's recommendation and gone in there.
That's some good stuff, right there
One advantage of having lost my memory—I can enjoy my past posts. While looking for the picture of Obama with a binkey and the story about him living like a king well above the level his salary provides, I read over some of my past observations. "Dang, that guy writes some good stuff!"
Since I never post any more I suggest you do the same thing, and go back and enjoy them.
"There is no end to the groups of Americans [Obama] has dismissed as beneath consideration because their lips are not surgically attached to his butt."
"Raising money is a simple matter of standing in front of the group that he wants to get it from and demonizing a class of people that group hates."
Phil Hendrie Award of the Week
This is why you need me. If you, just on your own understanding, read
this ridiculous article, you might think that it's real. You might think that there is someone on this planet so completely out of her mind insane as to believe the stuff that's written in there.
It's a parody. It's got to be. It was written by a devout conservative to lampoon how crazy liberal viewpoints are. Your clue is how over the top ridiculous it is. No one trying to make a real point could be so . . . crazy.
Just in case you didn't clue in they gave you the final tip-off at the very end where they identified the purveyor of this rambling crap as a "writer."
Dog ate the e-mails
Roadmap of a Scandal
Laura Ingraham (among others) pointed out that all of Obama's scandals follow a
Stage 1: Denial
First step is to just deny, deny, deny that it ever happened. Bill Clinton was the master of this. Without any attempt to be credible, just keep saying over and again that it's not true. By the time it becomes evident that it is true and worse, it's become old news.
Stage 2: Presidential speech
Obama always claims that anyone who says differently is only engaged in partisan politics. In addition, they are making it up because they just don't like him, and for good measure he or his minions will play the race card.
At the point that irrefutable proof surfaces that it is all true, the President has to deliver a speech. This is a four part process.
Stage 3: Declare it over
1. Declare that "We only just found out about it in the papers, same as you!"
It's funny/disturbing how the President has not one clue about what's going on until he reads about it in the papers.
It sounded ridiculous when Clinton used to do it, but Obama has taken it to a whole new level.
2. Blame it on George Bush
Use some version of the phrase "This is a situation that I inherited from my predecessor."
3. Make it clear that "Nobody's madder than me about this . . . !" (problem that you caused).
Here's a good place to throw around the phrase "Make no mistake."
Then right here Obama usually again inserts his little narcissistic twist where it's always about him—people are only making it an issue because they hate him personally.
4. Promise that "We will not rest until we have done everything we can . . . "
Don't worry that people have seen you say that over and over and over again a million times before.
If the topic ever comes up again, all you have to say is "Dude, that was, like, so long ago."
Declare that it's been settled. Period. Deflect any discussion about anything you might have done when you were not resting until you'd done everything you can.
It's over. You've completed the three stages. No one is allowed to discuss it anymore.
Obama negotiating with terrorists
This one deserves its own section
Can you think of anything more maddening than some lily-livered punk like Obama having the gall to hijack the phrase "Leave no man behind?"
So typical of the man. These concepts that are the foundation of being an American mean nothing to him, but he understands they mean something to us. So he hijacks them and profanes them by peppering his speeches with them to push his anti-American agenda on us.
"If we don't socialize medicine we jeopardize the very principles that our founders fought and died for! If we don't raise taxes and punish Republicans and confiscate guns the very principles of the Constitution that we hold so dear are put in jeopardy."
That's just maddening. But then when he pretends like he has any connection to or identification with the culture of the US military:
"We have a sacred principle that we live by: Leave No Man Behind!"
Wow. Just . . . wow.
Miscellaneous Scandal Toons
Google on Silent Spring
You've heard that the fine people at Google are a bunch of liberals. If you had any doubt you should consider
what they posted for their Google Doodle on Memorial Day.
Worst. West Point Speech. Ever
I can't imagine anything more humiliating than being the poor sonofabuzzard whose name had to be associated with
the President's pathetic West Point speech.
It was so excruciatingly bad that even the uber-liberal Huffington Post had to say
really? WTF was that?
If you are at all interested,
here's the full transcript of that pile of drivel.
A Real Speech
You need a palate cleanser from that . . . whatever it is that the President gave at West Point. I swear, when I heard it I seriously thought someone on the White House medical staff had screwed up his medications.
Anyway. You really—I'm serious, you really do—need to read or listen to
this commencement addressed delivered by Admiral McRaven.
Just do it.
Obama's Forlorn Policy
Do you remember Baghdad Bob?
I couldn't find the ones I did back in the day, but they were like this:
Don't argue with a liberal
I've talked about this before. If you must argue with a liberal, understand that you're not going to convince him to think like a rational person. You have to identify the objective of the exercise, which is to . . .
Well, just read
this pretty good column about it.
