Nice Conservative Man Vs. Mean Liberal in Downtown Charleston

Found this very NSFW video after trolling through some local blogs today. The video was shot on Capitol Street showing two men arguing over politics. What appears is a very calm and collected conservative walking away from an irate liberal who cusses way too much. I'm positive the nice conservative WVU man never said a bad word before the cameraman was able to hit record.

Again, NSFW (not safe for work). Marvene, you may want to mute this one:

Poll Proves Obama Believed To Be, And Probably Is, A Marxist/Socialist/Anti-Christ

Well, I had no idea that CLF politics and the strength of the Tea Baggers were so popular. There's a new Harris poll taken at the height of the Obamacare debate that proves that our points have become so pervasive among the masses. Just look!

Wow indeed! However, I take issue with the education part:

These replies are also strongly correlated with education. The less education people have had the more likely they are to believe all of these statements. Consider these differences between those with no college education and those with post-graduate education:

He is a socialist (45% and 20%)
He wants to take away Americans' right to own guns (45% and 19%)
He is a Muslim (43% and 9%)
He was not born in the United States so is not eligible to be president (32% and 7%)
He is a racist (28% and 9%)
He is anti-American (27% and 9%)
He is doing many of the things Hitler did (24% and 10%).

Look, I make no bones about me being a 20 percenter. But I'm very educated. I enrolled in Everest two summers ago for Web Design after seeing their commercials in between Judge Mathis episodes. I passed all the classes except I haven't paid them and they won't release my degree. Additionally, I got my learnin from just plain old street smarts and common sense...something liberals and progressives should just quit sticking their accredited college degrees and stupid diploma's up in the air about.

Oh, and I'm not a racist. Obama is. Case closed.

Mike Huckabee Was Here!!! Really, He Was!!!!

Hey, did you guys hear the news!?!?!! My all time favorite politician ever, Michael Dale "Mike" Huckabee was here, in Charleston, just yesterday. And to think I totally missed it. He was here for the Massey Energy expo at the Civic Center. My boss would not let me take more than my 35 minute lunch and combine it with my 37.5 minutes of cumulative break time so I could go over there and meet the man who will make history. Very disappointing, but I understand that by not being present in my office for a full day could hurt company profits.

The picture above is not from yesterdays event. No, if Chuck Norris was there WITH Mike Huckabee, I would have snuck out of work. Well, no, I probably wouldn't have. But I would have been REALLY disappointed if I missed them both. I did see good ole Mike when he came down to the Books-a-Million in December 08. I saw the top of his head amongst the throngs of fans who swarmed his bus. Good times. Good times.

Anyway, back to the point of my post. Not only did Massey get to show off its wonderous committment to safety and the environment, but Mike Huckabee showed he's still got political smarts. Here's some of his interview with MetroNews:
"I don't think America is in its last hour," Huckabee said in an interview with MetroNews. "I'm not a doom and gloom guy. I think what we're seeing in the political uproar in this country is indicative that people are ready to take back their country and aren't ready to give up on America."
I totally agree Mike. America is not in its last hour. Although, the socialist fascist Marxist/Leninist in the White House (also a secret Kenyan Moslim) is doing his best to devalue the dollar through large deficits. But Mike can't always speak so openly, like Glenn Beck, as a politician has to be positive and upbeat.
"A lot of times Americans, they hear the worst things about the coal industry from President Obama and a lot of the liberals in Congress," Huckabee says.
"Look, this industry is one of the reasons America can be self sustaining.""Cap and trade, which I like to call cap and tax, is really one more way of the government getting into our pockets. It would create huge costs for every household."
I also call it "cap and tax". I wonder how he heard about that too. Mike and I should totally hang out, we are on the same wavelength. Clearly, he is right. We have an unlimited amount of coal and it is not hurting the environment whatsoever.
"Making it possible with people with developmental disabilities and severe illnesses to be able to access health care, nobody argues we should do that," Huckabee explained. "But we can't do it the way that Congress has proposed because what they're really proposing truly will bankrupt America."
"I'm hoping that members of Congress finally realize that they may want this, President Obama may want this, but 75-percent of the American people do not want this."
I completely agree. Only 25% of Americans wants this health care bill, that's what all the polls say. This health care bill will certainly bankrupt us. Republicans are fiscally conservative, they would never push through a bill people didn't want through a simple majority vote. The gall of these Democrats to ram through this large, throbbing bill down our quivering throats. Its just sinful, really. Shame on the Democrats.
As for future political aspirations, Huckabee says he hasn’t made any decisions about another run for the White House. He says he plans on making that decision after this current election cycle winds down.
Run, Mike, run!!!! And please, choose wisely for VP. May I suggest a Huckabee/Norris ticket?!?!

Jim Bunning, Rand Paul, and a discussion of Libertarianism

In light of the news of our new hero Jim Bunning, former baseball pitcher and all around swell guy, standing up to Obama's economy of reckless spending, I would like to lead into a discourse about the perfect philosophy for everything that is "Libertarianism."

Dr. Rand Paul, son of the very independent and so NOT Republican Dr. Ron Paul, has come out to support Bunning in his efforts to stop unemployment benefits. Unemployment benefits are a form of government activism that entails too much of my tax dollars and desires to keep people unemployed indefinitely. End of story.

Dr. Rand Paul, as you know, is named after novelist Ayn Rand. Ayn Rand wrote fictitious stories about the plights of those who sought moral objectivism for the world around them. Her fiction ultimately created a real life philosophical following. A philosophy that insists that a man's happiness and free markets solve every single problem, which the Paul's have been strong proponents of. It's like taking Stephen King's novel "Carrie" and creating a philosophy to live by after high school bullies poured pig blood all over you. Sometimes it just takes the imagination of a writer to show you what is right and wrong.

Libertarians live by five basic tenants that can never be disputed. First, property is sacred. Above all, a man's home and land are his and his alone. He can do what he wants with them. He can start fires on his lawn if he so chooses or decide to have an elephant as a pet. To deny a man his happiness of fire and large animals is to deny his very being.

Second, any and all government is bad - except cops, the military, and judges. They will solve any dispute anyone has, such as when the man's lawn fire creeps over into his neighbors yard. All the neighbor has to do is go to court and hope the man doesn't have a ton of money for defense lawyers. Usually that is not the case, so problem solved.

Third, capitalism and capitalist are noble heroes. The system of capitalism and those who engage in it create an efficient and fool proof system of economics. When prices on any given product get too high, anyone can simply enter the market, create competition, and voila! prices go down. I mean, it's just that simple. It's only when government sticks their noses in that creates monopolies.

Fourth, worker activism is totally evil. The Corporation creates jobs for people. People should be thankful someone started up a company and gave them a job. End of story.

That brings us to our fifth and final tenant, that the poor are good-for-nothing wastes on society. This is exactly what Bunning and the Paul's are trying to say when they are denying unemployment benefits. Those people are unemployed because they want to be and because they'd rather sit on their fat asses and watch Maury Povich on their big screen TV's all day. This business about unemployment being high right now is just because the Obama Government includes all those people who are no longer looking for work - you know, those who'd rather be lazy! The Bush Administration never included those people in their unemployment numbers because they don't count. That's why unemployment was really low back then.

Whenever someone tries to dispute these five basic tenants of Libertarianism by giving examples of its lack of real world success - like for instance Pinochet's Chile, or deregulation of the financial industry - you must insist that those economies were not free enough. You must inform them that had Chris Dodd and Barney Frank not install Frannie and Freddie, none of the financial collapse would have happened. It was *because* of government interference, that actually caused the collapse. You must insist that because Pinochet was a dictator that he alone caused Chile's huge wealth disparity and annihilation of their middle class. It will only be until there is a completely free market, with absolutely no government interference, that true Libertopia can prosper. This absolutely free and untested economic system has great rhetorical appeal, and will surely win arguments.

So you see why we support Jim Bunning and the Paul's. It's great to have truly independent thinkers like them to change our totally socialist economy.
