Leany on Life -- November 2011

On This Day in History

Meanwhile, over in an Alternate Universe

You win
Okay, Occupy Wherever, you win. Let's meet on the deck of a battleship and work out an agreement.

Now, what do you want?

. . .

No, seriously, you win. You're the 99%, what can we the 1% give concede to you?

. . .

I can see you're having a hard time attaching specifics to your 'moral clarity.' Let me help you. Do you want everything for free? You got it. We'll just step out of the way. We'll go all Atlas Shrugged on you and you get to take over industry and agriculture. You can feed yourselves, make the cars and iPods and TVs and keep the lights on at the free universities . . .

Wait, come back, where are you going? Come back, let's work this out!

Reader's digest version
*&%king idiots. Every lazy one of them.

It can be discouraging to look around at who's running the show these days and wonder "Where have all the grown-ups gone?"

Take heart. There are still some people who are not drinking the Kool-aid. Here's where to find them. I would suggest going gown this list every day and printing off the most recent articles you haven't read to read over lunch.

Michelle Malkin
Michelle Malkin is a feisty conservative bastion. You loved her book "Unhinged" and you can read her columns here.
Ann Coulter

Ann posts her new column every Thursday, or you can browse her past columns.
George Will
What can you say? It's George Will. Read it.
Charles Krauthammer posts every Friday. Just a good, smart conservative columnist.
If you want someone who gets it just as right, but is easier to read, try Thomas Sowell, who just posts at random times.
Jonah Goldbert seldom disappoints.
David Limbaugh carries on the family tradition.

Jewish World Review has all these guys plus lots more good stuff.

Or you can go to radio show sites like
 Laura Ingraham's or Glenn Beck's or Rush Limbaugh's..

If you'd like you can study The Constitution while you wait.

Then there's always TownHall.com, NewsMax.com, The Drudge Report, FreeRepublic.com, World Net Daily, (which Medved calls World Nut Daily), News Busters, or National Review Online.

For the Lighter Appetite

If you have to read the news, I recommend The Nose on Your Face, news so fake you'd swear it came from the Mainstream Media. HT to Sid for the link.
Or there's always The Onion. (For the benefit of you Obama Supporters, it's a spoof.)

Dave Barry's Column
Daryl Cagle's Index of Political Cartoons
About half of these cartoonists are liberal (Latin for wrong) but the art is usually good. (Fantastic, if you're used to the quality of art on this site.)

Or just follow the links above and to the right of this section (you can't have read all my archived articles already). If you have read all my articles (you need to get out more) go to my I'm Not Falling For It section.

Above all, try to stay calm. Eventually I may post something again.

Today's Second Amendment Message

Earlier Blogs


Back in 2008 I attended an Ecocities Summit in San Francisco. One of the groups presenting there was the Peace and Freedom Party. I was intrigued as I read their platform in the conference literature.

These are the exact same idles as the Flea Party that is occupying Wall Street; The exact same worthless idiots. The lazy bums trespassing in the parks have no idea what they want, other than to be part of a protest like mommy was during Vietnam. But if you wanted to attach specifics to what the evil people who are behind this want, here it is, from the PAF party platform:

• Double the minimum wage, and index it to the cost of living.
• Socially useful jobs for all at union pay levels.
• A 30-hour workweek with no cut in weekly pay; longer paid vacations
• Tax the income and assets of the rich to meet human needs.
• End homelessness; abolish vagrancy laws; provide decent affordable housing for all
• Guaranteed dignified income for those who cannot work.
• Social ownership and democratic control of industry, financial institutions, and natural resources.
• The United States should take the initiative toward global disarmament by eliminating nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.
• Convert from a military to a peace-oriented economy, with jobs for displaced workers.
• Restore affirmative action, guarantee full education and employment rights for all.
• Abolish the death penalty.
• Provide full free quality public education through university level. Teach the history of workers' struggles and labor's creation of society's wealth and progress.
• Full rights for all immigrant workers. No human is illegal. Stop ICE raids. Stop jailing and deporting immigrants.
• Uncensored government funding for ordinary people to create and enjoy art.
• Scientific and technological research to benefit ordinary people, not the capitalists.
• Free high-quality health care for everyone, including birth control, abortion, pre-natal and childhood health care. No forced sterilizations.
• Legalize marijuana, decriminalize drug use, and make substance abuse treatment freely available.
• Massive development of public transportation available free or at nominal fares.
First of all, I thought these liberals claimed to be society's intellectuals. I've never seen a better example of bad English than this non-parallel list. Is there not one humanities major in the group? Oh, I guess that has to wait for free college education.

Obviously, their math skills are waiting for the same thing.

A wise man would present the list and let the stupidity speak for itself. I, on the other hand, feel compelled to point out a couple of things.

How does "free" work? You want a free house? Great, we can do that.

We can get a contractor to build it for free, 'cause he doesn't have to pay any bills 'cause he's getting everything for free. And we get the materials for free, 'cause the people who supply the materials don't have any financial obligations because they get everything for free. Everyone is working their fannies off to provide you a free house and a free education and free health care because everyone else is working their fannies off to provide free stuff for everyone that's providing free stuff to you . . .

It's genius! It's so simple. Everyone will work harder and produce more because they benefit the same whether they work hard or not at all, so it's just human nature to . . . wait a minute . . . am I thinking this through correctly?

Complete *&%king idiots. Not a brain in the lot of them.

Were we talking about lazy and stupid?
Kids today are great. I teach the priesthood lesson to the priests in our ward. I use my iPad. The kids follow along in the scriptures on their iPods or smart phones. One kid has an iPad.

He's a great kid. He really gets into his scripture program during class, holding the iPad sideways and working it with both thumbs, tilting it around . . . I love to see such devotion to the gospel.

Another kid sits behind the desk and holds his phone down in his lap. He's typing in search words in his scripture program all during class, not paying a bit of attention to me, he's so engrossed in his own private journey of discovery through the scriptures.

It's a glorious thing to behold. Makes me optimistic for the future.

I'm glad I'm not a talk show host. That's a view I share with approximately 100% of the listening public, but here's the deal—three hours a day you have to come up with something interesting to talk about. Three minutes a day would tax me.

Take, for example, Rod Arquette last night. "Should people be required to vote?"


That's three seconds. Done. What else you got?

Poor old Rod had to try to fill up three hours with that crap. Honestly. In the three minutes that I listened someone suggested that only people that pay taxes should be allowed to vote and Rod said "Well, but doesn't everyone have the right to vote?"

No again.

I'm proud to say I did not vote yesterday. I thought about it. Twice. But each time I made a conscious decision not to go. I didn't go to meet the candidates night, I didn't study the issues, my exposure to the candidates was limited to the signs I see on people's lawns. What right to I have to randomly check off names and cancel the vote of people who actually care?

Isaac Asimov said "Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' "

My brain is about to explode
Sorry, I'm still just shaking my head over how exactly you provide "Free, high quality health care" for everyone.

Imagine skilled doctors providing education for free to students who are willing to go to school for 12 years to work for free, all taking place at universities with high-tech free equipment operating with free utilities and unpaid staff . . .

Thankfully, the "99%" only make up about 1% of the total population (the most useless 1%), and have absolutely nothing to say about how we run things.
