I’ll believe it’s a crisis when the people who tell me it’s a crisis start acting like it’s a crisis.
Quite. It’s interesting how those who claim that our demise is imminent never seem to actually do something about this supposed imminent demise.
Example: the people who tell us that fossil fuels are ruining the environment… while flying across the country.
Or this classic.
Had I just gazed the world through my Twitter feed, I would think Chick-fil-A was on the verge of bankruptcy. . . and also that Ron Paul was president, gay marriage was legal, and President Obama didn’t have a decent chance of losing the election.”
For those who don’t get the joke, Chick-fil-A is doing record sales thanks to the response to the torrent of hatred they’ve received from those who regard opposition to their agenda as… hate.
And don’t get me started on Ron Paul supporters. Ugh.
Blogging would be heavier but I’m working on a rather lengthy post which has taken up a lot of my spare time.
Some people aren’t keeping up with political reality.
Um, sorry, Charlie… it’s not “all true.” Not even close. Ask Tea Party-backed Allen West or Tim Scott. Or Tea Party-backed Marco Rubio. If someone is still pushing this “Tea Party is racist” meme after all this time, it is only evidence of that person’s inability to break free from the Leftist echo-chamber.
Are there racists in the Tea Party? Of course, the Tea Party is one of the biggest political movements in America today. That’s gonig to include some racists.
Do those people represent the vast majority of Tea Party members? Of course not.
“If a liberal journalist were to produce the kind of footage at any one Tea Party, we would not be allowed to forget about it for the next five years,” Hartsock said.
Quote. I doubt we’ll be seeing too many responses like this. Seems all the lefties are too busy telling conservatives that Regan would have hated them, or bashing Palin for being “too partisan” in her speech celebrating one of the greatest conservatives that ever lived.
From the “delusions we have no intention of correcting” department.
The delusion that John Key is a hapless fool who’s somehow mysteriously gotten his hands on the reins of power remains very much alive within New Zealand lefties; this was the tired old line I got spun as recently as this afternoon, by one of the internet’s best-known Labourites (with a nice dollop of ‘if you don’t praise Labour, you’re a rightie’ for good measure).
The left simply isn’t going to get anywhere until they acknoledge a few things.
- Key didn’t get where his is today because he’s all smile and no brains.
- National doesn’t want to see the country fall flat on it’s face, it’s not going to sell off the country, it’s not going to slash government expenditure, and you can trust them at least as much as Labour, if not more.
- Claiming all the above as a central campaign strategy last time has done Labour a lot of damage this time around as people realize the sky hasn’t fallen.
Good luck with that.
Ok, I should only have one “quote of the day” but this one was just too much to sit on.
Still, she has never faced serious criticism in public in a campaign setting, and it’s impossible to anticipate how she would react to it
Who is that talking about? Sarah Palin.
Now, It doesn’t seem right to question if politico knows anything about US politics, but it’s hard to think of a more reality-challenged quote than to suggest Palin hasn’t “faced serious criticism in public in a campaign setting”.
That’s like pretending no one ever called Bush Hitler – oh wait, they’ve done that too.
In fact, the only way any reporter would be able to write such drivel is if they had been locked in a led coffin on the bottom of the Thames for the last 5 years with nothing to do but read a book entitled “50 ways to cut cucumbers with your left ear” while a blind monk taps the soundtrack of the 1929 movie adaptation of Rumpelstiltskin on the lid with a long bamboo pole.
But it’s Palin, so anything goes – even lying about the fact that with Palin, anything goes.
What Hawking appears to have done is to confuse law with agency. His call on us to choose between God and physics is a bit like someone demanding that we choose between aeronautical engineer Sir Frank Whittle and the laws of physics to explain the jet engine.
Incidentally, I was debating the existence of God (for some unknown reason it’s something I usually avoid online!) and someone recommended Hawking’s book as having all the answers. Well, since then I’ve heard a lot about his book from various sources, and one one (usual suspect) seemed to think it any good at all. Most in fact think it’s a pretty poor effort from someone who was once a great thinker.
I’m serious. You mess with Bill Clinton, you could wake up with a horse’s ass in your bed, like he does every day.
Can you imagine the outrage if someone actually said this?
3 guesses as to which conservative the quote was really insulting.
