So, you’ve stumbled onto my humble little blog. Perhaps you are a Millenial wondering why most of your friends aren’t fully employed. Or wondering why ObamaKare is being shoved down your throat. Or why your generation is on the hook for a national debt that stands at $17 $18 Trillion and counting. Maybe you are scratching your head wondering why your President thinks Global Warming the weather is more worrisome than Islamic Terror. And perhaps you’ve started to become aware there might be something the corrupt and biased lame stream media isn’t telling you. The answer, to these and other existential questions, is ... the Left - specifically, the modern American Progressive. Think of this site as a portal to a richer understanding of this answer, a portal purposely designed with a consciously cock-eyed bent to keep it entertaining. Because the First Amendment is forever and the Internet never forgets. (Plus you better figure out FICA isn't the name of a Swedish bikini model, before she eats your entire paycheck.)

How to use the portal? You could dive into my archive*. I was most active here 2010-2012, but that matters not. How many times do I need to demonstrate the central point? To wit, the political / ideological Left is a menace to the constitutional republic and must be resisted lest the American experiment in liberty devolve into socialist dystopia. If it's the more pointed hand-to-hand combat of the comment board that whets your appetite, click the 'My Disqus Comments' widget. I continue to visit that world from time to time as a light diversion. Or you could browse through my blog roll. It's a very representative collection of center-right blogs, though hardly exhaustive. I can't do the political / ideology thing 24x7, and you probably can't either. Leave that to the hysterical, talking point chanting, mob agitating, race baiting, election stealing, gaia worshiping, straw man torching, Islamic Terrorist appeasing, organized Left (aka OFA, MSNBC, UAW, SEIU, Think Progress, Media Matters, most of legacy media, the politically correct faculty lounge, anybody who belonged to Journolist, anybody connected to Occupy Wall Street, anything funded by George Soros or Tom Steyer, their paid Internet trolls, and the rest of the usual Team Leftie suspects).

One Trick Crony

The crucible of challenge and conflict has a way of reducing things to their basics. When “the chips are down” people instinctively reach for their “go to” reactions, tactics, and attitudes. It is just so for ideologies.

Barack Hussein Obama – the most ideologically rigid President in living memory – proved it this week with his desperate campaign message of the week (only approximately 16 weeks more to go, thankfully). He is in the electoral battle of his political life, and this week he trotted out the tired old “soak the rich” Progressive pitch.

American Progressivism is first and foremost the ideology of robbing Peter to pay Paul. Progressives require demons to demonize, in order to mobilize their constituents into virtual mobs (and sometimes even physical mobs on the street – see OWS) willing to engage in extortion in order to claw wealth and power away from their fellow citizens (assuming the mob consists of citizens, that is - sometimes the documentation is not so obvious).


The running rhetorical gun battle I had with my house troll Ema Nymton, on the comment thread to my April 25 post (“We’re All Mittens Men Now”) is instructive.

Click the two images to embiggen. Note: the Peter and Paul roles are reversed, but that kinda makes my point, doesn't it?

As Ema stipulates, the Progressive has a very regressive view of wealth. To them, it’s all something stuffed inside somebody else’s mattress, and it can only be acquired by breaking into the bedrooms of those who possess it, whatever ‘it’ is, and slicing open their mattresses.

What a bunch of barbarians. ‘It’ is what you do and create. You just need to find out how to barter ‘it.’

Btw - Somehow, I don’t think Ema is this dedicated Progressive’s real name. Maybe I should hold her name up to a mirror, or something, I don’t know.


When Progressive policies inevitably produce no economic growth, and the Progressive politician has no record of economic growth on which to run, the Progressive instinctively seeks to stay in power by collecting the votes of the mob of Pauls - by bribing them with Peter’s confiscated wealth. Trust me, Peter knows how to protect his wealth. After all, he acquired it in the first place. Any effort to confiscate it through coercion is wasted. Memo to all you Pauls – Peter is perfectly happy to pay you to do something useful. Learn how to do that, and the possibility of you becoming Peter yourself, or your children becoming Peter, is as real as the Progressive lie is false.


Astute readers of this blog have surely noticed it has been 17 days since I last clicked on “publish” button. 17 whole days. Wow.

Well, I am beginning to feel like I’m coming through to the other side of that little personal issue I alluded to in my June 24 post. Also, the two professional rescues I described in the same post are settling into a reasonably predictable state of managed chaos. Making me feel right at home.

So, all fifty or so (Fifty you I don’t say!) of my loyal daily readership can rest easy now. There will be more ‘high brow snark’ (I just thought of that) coming from this space.

“Because the only good Progressive is a failed Progressive.” That's why.
