Burn the Fucking System to the Ground

Monday, December 23rd, 2013

Clark is a little angry today:

The older I get, the more I see, the more I read, the more clear it becomes to me that the entire game is rigged. The leftists and the rightists each see half of the fraud. The lefties correctly note that a poor kid caught with cocaine goes to jail, while a Bush can write it off as a youthful mistake (they somehow overlook the fact that their man Barrack hasn’t granted clemency to any one of the people doing federal time for the same felonies he committed). The righties note that government subsidized windmills kill protected eagles with impunity while Joe Sixpack would be deep in the crap if he even picked up a dead eagle from the side of the road.

Maybe you have to suffer the sort of set back that I’ve experienced to feel the same way Clark does. My conventionally successful friends think I’m crazy when I spout off on stuff like Clark does in this post.

You really do need to go read the whole thing. It is very good. Burn the Fucking System to the Ground | Popehat.

Our One Party Government

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

I’ve often told my partisan friends, you know what I’m talking about, the ardent Republicans and Democrats, that we have a system of one party government here in the U.S.

This lead up to taking action against Syria should leave you with no doubt that we have a one party government. The R’s and D’s are just factions within that one party.

I think this is the way the right and the left work on all issues. Here is the latest example from the left:

The booklet explicitly urges foes of the Second Amendment to abjure rationality in favor of the argumentum ad passiones, or appeal to emotion. “When talking to broader audiences, we want to meet them where they are,” the authors advise. “That means emphasizing emotion over policy prescriptions, keeping our facts and our case simple and direct, and avoiding arguments that leave people thinking they don’t know enough about the topic to weigh in.”
