Are You a Liberal?

Saturday, August 1st, 2009

This question is much harder to answer and teasing out the history of liberalism is far more difficult than defining what “conservative” really means.

However, the essence of today’s “liberalism” in contrast & comparison to “conservatism” is that

Liberals are “deluded;”

whereas,

Conservatives are “psychotic.”

The liberal delusion is

“Someone will give me something for nothing.”

And there are various derivatives off that theme of entitlement and

“Something for Nothing.”

But the cost of government sponsored or government provided services is VERY HIGH.

Consider that at the time of the advent of “The Great Society” and LBJ’s [President Johnson’s] “War on Poverty,”

Americans were hopeful but we have learned a hard lesson.

There is more poverty today in America then there was when “The War of Poverty” began.

In the 1960’s a reliable estimate is that for every $1 in public services rendered Uncle Sam ate up $5!

That’s one helluva tax!

80%!

Alas, today the ratio is far worse.  I estimate that for every $1 in public services delivered, Uncle Sam takes $19!

“Big Government” is “Big Business.”

More diabolically,

The “hidden costs” are terrible!

For one, with the strong motivation of entitlement programs the toll on life quality and the toll on society are even greater.

For another, with the domination of The Medical Model on American Mental Health we’ve pretty much destroyed American health and American character.

So, which are you?

Are you deluded?

Or are you psychotic?

Perhaps the more important questions are:

Are conservatives or liberals more dangerous?

Are conservatives or liberals more effective in getting their message and agenda through?

Arpaio Launches Chandler Sweeps

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

While Arpaio’s crime suppression operation is certainly welcome in Chandler and

We in Chandler feel neglected by the Maricopa Sheriff’s Office when it comes to rounding up illegals,

One needs to realize that “the Sheriff Joe” as presented in the media doesn’t exist.

That’s right.  The Sheriff as presented publicly doesn’t exist.

We need to get into this in some detail but not right now.

What we need to realize is that the Sheriff’s operations are inefficient, ineffective and expensive.

You see, “law enforcement” today is ‘Big Business.’

It’s not about justice.

It’s all about how much tax payer money your department can eat up and

Demand in the name of keeping the public safe

All that really matters is the same in any part of American government today:

“How many people can I supervise to justify my position and

An ever expanding budget so that I can grow my ‘business,’ my power base, my territory.”

It has nothing to do with public service but

Everything to do with service of self.

It is self-serving.

The public presentation and

The persona are everything.

All that matters are appearances,

Not substance.

American life has become very shallow and

“Value free.”

Reality doesn’t matter.

All that matters are the lies we tell ourselves and each other.*

This is:

Mass Insanity.

*We certainly wouldn’t want to offend anyone.

This is why “political correctness” is so effective in destroying a country.

We begin to believe the lies we tell:

We lose touch with reality.

It results in mass insanity.
