I spend a good part of every day shaking my head. I know you do too. We ask ourselves, “what is wrong with these damn dumb liberal politicians?
For a long time I thought there could only be two possible explanations for why liberal politicians (both Democrat and Republican) act the way they do. In order to believe and do such ugly, hateful, damaging and illogical things, they must be either stupid or evil. Stupid, for instance, when they increase federal spending on frivolous stuff and refuse to cut spending on anything, no matter how corrupt or obsolete, while our national debt approaches $20 trillion and personal incomes stagnate or decline. Evil, for instance, when they insist on using taxpayer funds for killing babies and selling their body parts and then call anyone who objects a “woman hater”.
Some say maybe these liberal politicians are regular people who just never grew up. But I don’t buy that. My five-year old grandkids have already, on their own, figured out that the guy in the baggy red suit with the heavy southern drawl is not Santa Claus. Reindeer do not land on the roof. And the tooth fairy thing? The kids are just in it for the money. They haven’t grown up yet, but they aren’t stupid.
Somehow liberal politicians are immune to paradox. They think expecting a woman pay $9 a month for her own birth control pills is a “war on women”. But they can’t wait to import hundreds of thousands of Muslims, most of whom believe a woman should not be seen or heard, go to school, drive a car, hold a job, or have a clitoris.
Liberal politicians still make the wild-eyed claim that asking a voter to provide identification is a naked attempt to suppress the minority vote. Is there a human being alive in this country with no identification, other than the illegal and unvetted immigrants who can’t vote anyway? There can only be one reason to not verify the identity of a voter, and that is to enable vote fraud. Liberal politicians line up in lock-step on this one. Stupid? Or Evil?
I could go on all day, and so could you. They won’t allow a Christian bakery to refuse to make a gay wedding cake, but they love the Muslims who routinely execute gays. Guns in the hands of responsible citizens are unacceptable, but don’t touch the ones used by the liberal politicians’ bodyguards. Ordinary families can’t have school choice, but the rich liberal politicians can.
I ruled out the theory that they just never grew up. And I don’t think they are stupid. They might think we are, and that we will continue to swallow any old crap they throw out – like, “I never had sexual relations with . . . “, or “there were no classified documents on my server” or “I never blamed the Benghazi attack on a video”, or “all of our hard drives crashed at exactly the same moment”, or “we can’t stop this horrible legislation even though we control both houses of Congress.”
I know, you are shaking your head too. Makes me wanna holler. Throw up both my hands.
Tom Balek – Rockin’ On the Right Side
Rockets, moon shots. Spend it on the have-nots.
Money, we make it. ‘Fore we see it you take it.
Oh, make you wanna holler. The way they do my life.
Crime is increasing. Trigger-happy policing.
Panic is spreading. God knows where we’re heading.
Oh, make me wanna holler. They don’t understand.
Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler) – Etta James
One of my favorite songs by one of my favorite singers. It was written in 1971 by the amazing Marvin Gaye, but the lyrics couldn’t be more current. Gaye’s song never went anywhere until Etta James recorded her arrangement in 1998, and since then it has been covered by stars like John Mayer, Grover Washington, Joe Cocker, the Chi-Lites, and many other artists. We got to see Etta on her last tour before she passed, and it was really special. Sorry, no live video of her doing this great song exists.
