... Waiting for a leader with the capacity to unite them ... Three more dysfunctional years ... (sigh)
Wow. Houseboi2014 really has the “fire and brimstone” thing down.
LibDem said...Governing by recall doesn't seem like the most efficient approach. What if we all just went to the polls on election day and voted? We're getting about 20% of registered voters and then a host of complaining.
“That gay guy” spearheaded the push for a major policy shift (and an expensive one) affecting all Chattanooga taxpayers. It is a policy shift that he didn’t have the integrity to so much as mention in his campaign for office. Efficient or not, a recall is entirely appropriate for such a public official. No passes for being gay.
Liberals alleged compassion for the poor is little more than hot air.
una61 said...Speaking of cold hearts, Monday's low temperature is forecast to be 18 degrees, the homeless shelter will be full and Chattanooga churches will be locked, including their coffee shops.
Exactly who do you think it is that funds (and staffs) the Community Kitchen, along with ALL of the homeless shelters in this city and in most American cities? Should there be more church-sponsored homeless shelters? Of course. But when you compare them with atheist institutions that open their doors to the homeless … Oh, wait. Atheists don’t establish institutions that offer lasting help to the poor. In fact, they don’t establish institutions of any sort. They simply whine about the imperfections of those who do.
Old man winter, meet your cousin, Joe Cool.
Rush and the White House Intern/POTUS actually have some things in common. They both have proven to be cool, polished communicators, especially in their use of demagoguery. Both are skilled in their abilities to read their audience, use buzz words, and play them like a fiddle in order to boost their ratings. Entailed with those skills is their penchant for firing up extremists in their respective parties and enraging members of the opposing party. Both men, however, are utter failures in their qualifications to lead the country. Due in part to their respective demeanors, they do cannot seem to play a positive role in effecting bi-partisan policy-making or encouraging temperate public discourse. Contra the cartoon, both are, at bottom, more about generating heat than light.
If there are merely two glasses and half a bottle of bubbly to go around, it is likely because of government disincentives for investing and manufacturing in the industries that produced them. That, along with the sense of helplessness, dependence, and entitlement with which the large, potentially wealth-creating populace has been brain-washed by the Intern, Bennett, & company.
Happy New Years! Eat, drink, and never be content with what reductionist liberals say that you are capable of!
New Year’s resolutions usually involve matters for which the individual making the resolution is personally responsible. They involve utilizing one’s own resources to bring about needed personal changes. The Intern, on the other hand, is a public official setting policy in one branch of a three-branched democracy. Well, there’s simply no analogy. This past year, Clay had exactly one clever, thought-provoking cartoon, and his resolve to not squeak out a second one at the 11th hour remains steadfast.
But, it was the year of Obama the Oblivious ...
“Trickle down economics,” like “capitalism,” is a false label used by class warriors to create the illusion that the social classes simply consist of the 1% and the 99% and that the two groups are destined to perpetual violent conflict until the entire population is equally rewarded for unequal efforts and unequal capital investments. The result of attempts to implement this de-humanizing fantasy is a system based on the violent acquisition of power. A society where capital is created at a variety of levels and flows peacefully in multiple directions is inconceivable to those who feed on envy, blame-shifting, and revenge.
