Divorce American Style

imageUnless you live in a cave somewhere you’ve seen the statistics on the effects that divorce has on families. I do think the stats are skewed and that 50% of all marriages do not end in divorce or I must live in some “super” zone where divorce rarely happens and when it does its for the best of all concerned.

Divorce is certainly a last resort, but is a divorce decree from the Interweb I think I can live with:

No They Can’t

One of the things that I struggle with the most in my life is trying to understand how anyone who has ever dealt with government can also BELIEVE that government is the answer to everything.  Somehow government can fix anything. No, They Can’t argues Fox’s John Stossel as he explains “why government fails – but individuals succeed.”  I remember watching Stossel’s hard hitting pieces exposing consumer fraud and he was the darling of the mainstream media winning dozens of Emmy’s.  That all changed when he, in his own way, started questioning some of the ivory towers of liberalism or as I call them, Liberal Alters’

Take That

It is sometimes hard to be a conservative working in an industry that is dominated by liberals.  The attached screen print is from a  brief exchange with a liberal colleague who felt quite comfortable forwarding an email wishing, essentially, for the death of Rush Limbaugh.  Ordinarily I let these things slide, but not this time as you can see by me snappy reply.

We conservatives really need to start speaking up and LOUDLY.  We have been too timid while we grumble for a “true conservative” leader to do what we don’t do.  We need to start confronting liberals whenever they speak up – which is often and when they are wrong – which is always.  We need to become the irritating little shits like they are only we’ll, of course, be right.

Secretary of State Hilary Clinton (Democrat)

I happened to catch some of Sean Hannity’s radio show this afternoon.  He had as a guest long-time Democrat strategist and spokesman Lanny Davis.  Sean had devilish intentions of busting the chops of Davis about President Obama’s poll numbers and suggesting that just about any Republican candidate could win in 2012.  Davis differed on that and suggested that only Romney had the right stuff to challenge Obama (I have to admit to being leery about the Democrat’s consistent position, almost a longing, to have Romney be the Republican nominee).

Job’s Jobs Jabs

One of the things that I struggle with is the thought process of liberals.  I have friends and family who share this affliction (being liberal) and knowing them as I do I cannot understand their thought process regarding liberal issues/alters.  I really have tried to listen, to understand, to plot the way they think, a process that usually ends with my being frustrated and cutting off the conversation to avoid bad feelings. 

Perhaps the quintessential example illustrating my frustration is the recent “quotes” from the soon-to-be-released biography on Apple’s Steve Jobs.  Revered by virtually all for his contributions to technology and his leadership to one of America’s most iconic corporations…yes Apple is a CORPORATION!  Here are some of the excerpts attributed to Jobs;

Progressive Process Revealed

 I cannot confirm that this is the official process document that liberals/progressives/Democrats use to push their agenda, but the method seems accurate.  My calls and e-mails to Democrat leaders were not returned (or rather I never sent any, but lame-stream media always use that tactic to insinuate that the party would not respond).  I used the diagram to see if it would work for the most recent push for an extension of unemployment benefits and son-of-a-gun it worked.

“With unemployment being extended another 13 months, is it maybe time to just start calling it welfare?”

A Missing Link?

This is not a posting about evolution or intelligent design, but it does contain an element of biology.  I wish that I knew more about the brain and critical thinking processes in the human brain.  I cannot seem to grasp the way big liberal think.  Do they have a part of their brain that is overdeveloped?  I suspect it is an underdeveloped are, but wanted to give them the benefit…initially.  The progressives see life and American so much differently than I do I sometimes have doubts about my own clarity (only briefly). 

Maybe they are right?

Liberal Alters – Public Education

My own personnel experience with public education was limited to a year in kindergarten at Horace Mann school.  The building still stands today, but no education going on in there anymore unless you consider stabbings and shootings and in particular how to avoid them education.  My parents enrolled me in a private educational system starting if first grade.  Before you get all twisted the private education was Catholic Schools in which I spent the next twelve years.  Going to Catholic grade school was certainly convenient as I could walk there and there certainly was discipline growing up Catholic.

The Unruly Trinity

There are three entities that have the unique ability to drive the left absolutely stark raving mad.  The mere mention of any of these makes Keith Olberman slather, Chris Matthews have leg pain, Rachel Madow (Ok I got nothing for her), the New York Times lose more circulation, and Robert Gibbs wish for his big break on Saturday Night Live.

The first and perhaps the most hated is former Republican Veep candidate, Sarah Palin.  Sean Hannity calls it “Palin Derangement Syndrome.”  The left was probably very disappointed that they did not get to choose the Republican VP candidate like they chose John McCain and took an instant dislike to her.  From the price of her campaign wardrobe to who is the mother of her child to what she reads and most recently what she writes on her hand.
