The Fertile Breeding Ground of the Left

Posted by Diogenes Sarcastica

Dr. Sanity gives an insightful take on the left's new 'Protected Matter' in her piece "Floating up to the top of the left's Victimhood Heirarchy. 
"If you needed more evidence that Islam has percolated to the top of the Left's victimhood food chain--other than the fact that they can abuse women and gays with impunity and nary a word of condemnation from the left--then observe how instead of condemning this oppressive culture, the left positively trips all over themselves defending it against people like Bill O'Reilly or Juan Williams."

Weekend Rant

Posted by Diogenes Sarcastica
Friday, October 15. 2010

I recently watched a brainwashed college student on TV repeating the same old tired platitudes and recite a comprehensive list of sweeping generalizations about the letdowns our elected officials rain upon us. Everything her little spiel implied is what most people have wanted from government since kings were invented,  but have experienced only while riding unicorns under rainbows through enchanted forests up to cornucopias of food, drink, merriment, eternal good health, and sunshiny days with white puffy clouds and fountains in the park bubbling alternately with Merlot and Chablis.

The problem with her vision is that a high percentage of humans have at least moderate potential for nastiness of one kind or another. If everyone were truly good, if we all lived by the Golden Rule, no government would be needed. But since we can lapse into our more petty, savage, brutal, and selfish modes in an instant for no apparent reason, government becomes necessary to level the playing field so that the biggest, meanest dude in the valley doesn't wind up with all the gold, goodies, and girls.

And the irony in THAT is our dependence upon humans to form and operate that government, and being human, they're automatically flawed, whimsical, petty, crooked, mean-spirited, greedy, arrogant, flighty, incompetent, corrupt, selfish, egotistical, and sometimes downright evil.  Any government comprised of those individuals would sooner or later begin to exhibit the characteristic flaws of its constituency. Government is just like any other tool . . . hammer, fire, gun, screwdriver, rope, knife . . . and like fire, or like sharp instruments, it can be extremely dangerous if used carelessly or needlessly. What tends to happen is that someone enters government at a low level with the best of intentions, the highest of ethics, the noblest of goals, and before long becomes acutely aware of just how much wealth and power are available for the taking.

 Our recent congresses and executive administrations have established a pattern of unethical, immoral, and in some cases illegal behavior. The organizations designed to enact and enforce the laws of the land is not practicing what it's preaching. And that in turn generates disdain and contempt for the law, which then tells individuals that they don't have to obey laws they don't like because the laws are too complex or too cumbersome or too obscure, so each person is more or less left to decide which laws to obey and which to ignore.  And when you think about that concept, don't forget that this nation was actually created out of distrust of government. The men who designed our system built in safeguards so that the people could actually keep an eye on what government is up to. But over the decades, politicians have mastered the skill of hiding, masking, obfuscating, misdirecting, deceiving, , double talking, and equivocating to the point that most ordinary citizens can no longer even FIND, much less READ, proposed legislation (such as the 2000+ page health-care reform bills).

Nearly everything the central government gets involved with winds up either in failure or in massive cost overruns. Reagan once said that the most terrifying words a victim of natural disaster could hear are "I'm from the government and I'm here to help you." Will Rogers said the same thing another way: "I don't have to make jokes. I just watch the government in action and tell on 'em." And just a few years ago I heard a late-nite comedian say (after the government failed in turning profit on a foreclosed whorehouse), "Crime would go out of business if the government took it over and tried to run it."

When you think about it, most people probably consider anything they get from the government to be a result of social progress. But those same people very likely believe that anything the government does for somebody else is pure socialism.

The most convincing criticism of republican democracy you'll ever find will occur during a brief conversation with an average man-on-the-street headed for the ballot box.

Time Magazine: O is in Over His Head

Out of Touch, Arrogant and Clueless......Ya Think!
  They've just realize what we've know for a while now.

"With the exception of core Obama Administration loyalists, most politically engaged elites have reached the same conclusions: the White House is in over its head, isolated, insular, arrogant and clueless about how to get along with or persuade members of Congress, the media, the business community or working-class voters. This view is held by Fox News pundits, executives and anchors at the major old-media outlets, reporters who cover the White House, Democratic and Republican congressional leaders and governors, many Democratic business people and lawyers who raised big money for Obama in 2008, and even some members of the Administration just beyond the inner circle."

Obama Gets A Book Thrown At Him... 
 Then The Naked Guy Shows Up.

The Daily Mail:  "A book was apparently hurled at the head of U.S. President Barack Obama during a campaign rally in Philadelphia. The flying missile narrowly missed hitting the President today."
"It is not clear what the book was, where it came from in the crowd, or why it was thrown at Mr Obama – who did not appear to notice the danger.  
"The rally was clearly an eventful one – other images showed a naked man being led away in handcuffs by police. It is not clear if the man was involved in the book-throwing incident – or why he was not wearing any clothes."

The Secret is Out: Joe Biden's New Book

EXCLUSIVE: Excerpts From V.P.'s New Book

Recently someone threw a paper bag over the transom of Diogenes’ offices that was found to contained parts of the manuscript to Vice President Joe Biden’s super secret upcoming explosive blockbuster tell-all memoir of the 2008 campaign and first 2 years in office.

Here is a small sample of what it contained:

From the Chapter on Sarah Palin:
 "I do kinda  like that Alaskan broad Sarah Palin!. After the Vice Presidential debates were over, she sent over flowers and a bottle of excellent scotch to me with a note:
"How’s it feel  to get your little Delaware boy ass handed to you by a Lady? Ya know ya did, Joe!"
"Love and Kisses, The Pit bull."

"Then later the  Governor  sent over a signed copy of her #1 bestselling book "Going Rogue" with the inscription: 
 "To my favorite Joe, who could have been a contender, but wound up Champ!"
"Ol’ Joe almost teared up for a second. But the best surprise was she sent with the book a big picture of the cover of her follow up book due out  just in time for the midterm elections."
"Just gotta love her!" 

From the chapter on the Media:
“Barry is such a stuffed shirt when it comes to the whole press thing. I don't know why he gets so nervous when they point a camera or microphone in my direction?  They're all bending over backwards to make us look good, even those Mexicans and Black guys!”
“ I wonder if Wolf Blitzer’s momma named him that because he was born with that beard.  And what kinda  TV name is Rachel Maddow for a man anyway?”

He also talks about his one true love which he brought to D.C. with him.

"Back in the day we used to call 'em panty-melters. One babe caught a glimpse of those custom rims after a AC/DC concert in '86 and she couldn't get into that backseat fast enough."
"Gotta  keep her looking good so I can impress the chicks when I'm cruising up and down Pennsylvania Avenue."

Other revelations from the manuscript:

* Biden reveals who in Congress owns the best porno DVD collection.

* Addresses his controversial statement  about “radical Islamist having sex with goats” by clarifying he meant  ” only the ones who actually own goats.” 

* Reports about the in depth discussions at oval office meetings as to why after every return from an overseas mission, Hillary Clinton’s ass looks bigger than before.
* After the magnificent victory over Republicans in mid-term elections, Biden plans a whirlwind visit to all 57 states.

The working title to the book is slated to be
" The 2008 Campaign, the Best I can Remember "

Creator of Tea Party Kids Coloring Book 
Receiving Death Threats…

CBS News: Coloring books aren't just about Disney princesses and Dora the Explorer anymore.

 “The Tea Party Coloring Book for Kids,” published by the St. Louis-based Really Big Coloring Books Inc. and sold online for around $4 at, has been a big seller – and is causing a stir.

Some are claiming that the book wasn’t made for children at all, but for right-leaning adults, as KSDK notes. Critics say passages in the books are overly political.

“When taxes are too high, the high tax takes away jobs and freedom,” reads one passage. “In 1773 we had a Tea Party and this led to freedom from high taxes. Today we are having another Tea Party and this will lead to freedom from high taxes again!”

According to Wayne Bell, the publisher at Really Big Coloring Books Inc. the purpose of the book is not political.

“We’re not really making a political statement,” he told Hotsheet, noting that his company publishes books on a range of topics, including the Rockettes and Cirque de Soleil. He stressed that the book did not include direct attacks on a political party and contains historical data and information on how a bill becomes a law.

He also noted that his company makes an Obama Coloring Book, which, like the Tea Party book, is featured on the front page of the company’s website. The Tea Party book, he said, is by far the better seller, with demand so high that new books must be printed every day to keep up. “We have sold many thousands,” said Bell, who penned the book.

Bell, who describes himself as a “very liberal, open minded guy,” denies that the Tea Party is behind the book or that any of the money from sales goes to the Tea Party movement.

He said he has even received death threats over the coloring book, both in writing and over the phone.


Just another fine example of intolerance by the left, who seems can't even let one of the more intelligent of their side make a living in peace.

So Why Not Him?

Posted by Diogenes Sarcastica

In 1930, somewhere in Hungry, George Schwartz was born — not the best time and place to be born a Jew.

George’s father Theodore tried to change the family’s fortunes by changing their name to something less Jewish-sounding. It didn’t help. And soon war came. When the Nazis took total control of Hungary in 1944, the Holocaust followed. In two months, 440,000 Hungarian Jews were deported to death camps.

To survive, George, then a teenager, collaborated with the Nazis.

First he worked for the Judenrat. That was the Jewish council set up by the Nazis to do their dirty work for them. Instead of the Nazis rounding up Jews every day for the trains, they delegated that murderous task to Jews who were willing to do it to survive another day at the expense of their neighbors. Theodore hatched a better plan for his son. He bribed a non-Jewish official at the agriculture ministry to let George live with him. George helped the official confiscate property from Jews.

By collaborating with the Nazis, George survived the Holocaust. He turned on other Jews to spare himself.

George moved to London after the war and then to New York, where he became a stockbroker. He’s rich now.  

He became known as "the Man Who Broke the Bank of England" after he made a reported $1 billion during the 1992 Black Wednesday UK currency crisis. In 2002 a French court convicted George of insider trading,  a felony   as defined under French securities laws, and fined him $2.3 million, which was roughly the amount that he made using  insider information.

In the United States, he is known for donating large sums of money in an effort to defeat President George W. Bush's bid for re-election in 2004. In an interview with The Washington Post on November 11, 2003, he said that removing George W. Bush from office was the "central focus of my life" and "a matter of life and death." He said he would sacrifice his entire fortune to defeat President Bush, "if someone guaranteed it." During the 2003-2004 election cycle, he donated $23,581,000 to various 527 groups dedicated to defeating President Bush. A 527 group is a type of American tax-exempt organization named after a section of the United States tax code.

Forbes magazine says he’s the 35th richest man in the world. 

Maybe you’ve heard of him. He goes by the name his father invented: George Soros.

During  2003-2004, Soros helped set up the leftwing advocate groups to defeat Bush  and gave  $3 million to the Center for American Progress, $5 million to, and $10 million to America Coming Together. Today, members of these groups regularly appear on and work with the mainstream media to push a socialist agenda on America, while Soros stands in the background.

No one knows for sure the extent of his involvement…..the man behind the curtain?   With his power and money, some believe him a dangerous man.

 And how does Soros feel about what he did as a teenager?

Has it kept him up at night?

Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes asked him that. Was it difficult? “Not at all,” Soros answered.

“No feeling of guilt?” asked Kroft. “No,” said Soros. “There was no sense that I shouldn’t be there. If I wasn’t doing it, somebody else would be taking it away anyhow. Whether I was there or not. So I had no sense of guilt.

A Nazi would steal the Jews’ property anyways.  So why not him?

Obama Couldn’t Even Fill Community College Recreation Center, Organizers Forced to Recruit Students…

Commander  Zero

Parma Ohio: With less than an hour before President Obama’s scheduled speech, 75 seats remained empty in the recreation center at Cuyahoga Community College’s Western Campus.
 So organizers went around campus and recruited more students to fill the seats. 
Student Jennifer Rahal, of Parma Heights, whose class was canceled today, was working on her art work in the coffee shop in the basement of the building when the call went out for more guests.After dropping off their stuff at a bag check, the newly invited guests cleared security and filed into the gym.
It's believed that city officials all had prior commitments...
