These damn fools who continue to insist Bambi is not marxist/socialist should do some web browsing and connect the dots-blind squirrel.

What dots? Why there is hardly any evidence. All the meida has done is ignore the following:

Mom was a communist
Dad was a communist
Grandma was a communist
Grandpa was a communist
Dad worked for a communist group in Kenya
Mom worked for a communist group in Indonesia
Young Barack was mentored by a communist, Frank Marshall Davis
Barack is a disciple of Saul Alinsky, a communist
Valarie Jarrett’s father was a prominent communist
Van Jones is a self professed communist
His former communication’s director, Anita Dunn, admires Mao
Dr. Tara O’Toole, a communist was nominated by Obama to a post in DHS
Friend Bill Ayers, was a member of the Marxist Weather Underground
For 20 years Obama attended a church, whose theology is Marxist based

Make Obama white and substitute Tea Party Member for communist and Marxist. What would the media do?

Gee, Wally. I don’t know how the media could have missed all those signs.
You said it, Beav!

What is “historic”?

I’m sick and tired of hearing people blather on and on about how “historic” the health care takeover is. Historic doesn’t mean good.

9/11 was historic.
Pearl Harbor was historic.
Kristallnacht was historic.
the Alamo was historic.

That doesn’t mean they were good.

Passing something this blatantly unconstitutional and tyrannical against incredible public opposition is certainly historic. That doesn’t mean that this is a good thing.

Audi’s Greenstapo Super Bowl Ad

Did you get a chance to see Audi’s Greenstapo Super Bowl ad?

Some people saw this as satire of the enviostatist fanatics, others were seriously creeped out. Put me down in the “creeped out” camp. Not only was the video an affront to me as a free man, it was scary.

When the Tripods Came
In this science fiction book for kids, the Earth is invaded by extraterrestrials in three legged craft. However, the aliens do not invade in the traditional manner. They use a pirate TV signal to broadcast “The Trippy Show.” The show begins as pure fluff entertainment, then gradually transitions to propaganda. In the beginning, there is a tripod character that dances in the background of the show. Eventually, the tripod transitions to a heroic character. This has the effect of slowly getting the human population used to the idea of the tripods. First, they are depicted as silly, then gradually as noble.

This technique can be quite effective: get the masses used to the idea by making fun of it, then gradually transition to treating it seriously and heroically.

The comments on the youtube video are illuminating. Some think this is a joke, others are creeped out, but then there are the others. Quite a few posters seem to think that the Envirosocialist police state depicted would be a good idea. People like that make me fear for the future of human liberty.

Hoard incandescents.

Something else bothered me about the video and some people’s enthusiastic response to it.

I started thinking about the real horrors that people inflict upon each other: murder, rape, assault, molestation, kidnapping, abuse, armed robbery…
Can throwing away a plastic bottle come anywhere close to that?

Does using an incandescent light bulb equal selling cocaine to a child?

Is using a plastic grocery bag the same as robbery, embezzlement, or even kicking a dog?

Over Five Thousand Years Ago

This was taken from the Buffalo Gap Round-Up, August 2009.

Over Five Thousand Years Ago…
Submitted by Pam Miles, Abilene, TX

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, “Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the promised land.”

Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said, “Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the promised land.”

Now Obama is going to steal your shovel, kick your asses, raise the price of camels, and mortgage the promised land.

Robin Hood supported lower taxes, not higher

People on the left often use Robin Hood as a metaphor for their socialist “wealth redistribution” schemes and power grabs. However, what people don’t realize about Robin Hood was that he stole from the rich POLITICIANS to give to the poor TAXPAYERS. Robin Hood advocated less taxation, not more (in other words, tax cuts for those who pay taxes).

Here’s the recap of the legend: King Richard was away, and England was ruled by his jerk of a brother, John. Prince John and his cronies decided to increase taxes on the working folks of England, so they could have some fun. In came Robin of Loxley, who believed that the hard working folks of England should be allowed to keep the fruits of their labor. Robin Hood was not opposed to government (he supported the lawful king), but rather to tyrannical government and confiscatory taxation.

“Well,” you might say, “The government would not be taxing to further their own lifestyle, but rather to help the poor.” Remember, the goal of a politician is to get reelected and obtain more power and influence. When government programs are continually expanded, the main reason is to buy votes and allow the politicians to remain in power. Politicians also seem to always find a way to exempt themselves and their cronies from many of the requirements of the regulatory and tax burdens they impose on others. Whenever reform of these leviathan programs is proposed, the socialist politician cries that the reformer is trying to hurt the poor/elderly/kids. Thus, a never-ending cycle of greed, corruption, and waste is perpetuated.

Taking wealth away from those who produce it does nothing to address the root causes of poverty and actually hurts the overall economy by punishing achievement and discouraging excellence. When success is taxed, success is discouraged. History has repeatedly shown that lower taxes provide a better foundation for economic stability and general prosperity.

Robin of Loxley returned the money to the taxpayers from whom it was unjustly stolen by a tyrannical government. Robin Hood was a tax protester.
