A ClueClubbing? of Astronomical Proportions

Thanks to His Curmudgeonliness?, we’ve been reminded of our remissfulness for not keeping up, with all due diligence, on the Eternal Wisdom? of Victor Davis Hanson.

(Screeching MoonBats? be forewarned: Your heads will implode or, possibly, explode from having such a ManHandlerr-sized Can of Whoopassery? opened on your sick, deluded worldview.)

There is much talk of post-election reorganization and rethinking among demoralized liberals, especially in matters of foreign policy. They could start by accepting that the demise of many of their cherished beliefs and institutions was not the fault of others. More often, the problems are fundamental flaws in their own thinking ? such as the ends of good intentions justifying the means of expediency and untruth, and forced equality being a higher moral good than individual liberty and freedom. Whether we call such notions ?political correctness? or ?progressivism,? the practice of privileging race, class, and gender over basic ethical considerations has earned the moralists of the Left not merely hypocrisy, but virtual incoherence.

Go read the entire thing. It’s truly a thing of beauty and a masterpiece of deconstructing the hypocrisy and idiocy of today’s Slobbering Socialist Sychopants?.

    First, and it’s a good read, hence the double post

    Sorry for the momentary “double post”. We were having a few “technical issues” with Movable Type. They seem to have gotten a quick handle on the problem, as per their usual bad-ass selves. ;)

    Damn, just DAMN. That is a fine read, and I’d love to copy it out and have it printed in big, huge, bold, red letters 50 feet high on billboards scattered all across America.

    It’s a shame that even THAT won’t change the Leftards’ minds, though. They’re literally stuck so deep in their little bubble of alternate reality, the only thing that would shatter it is a trauma even more heinous and deadly than 9/11–and there’s a good chance that even something like that wouldn’t budge half the populace. *sigh*

    Well said, Sir Hanson, and well fisked, BC. Others have made similar statements, such as Sean Hannity and the so-called “Blithering Bloated Bigot”, Rush Limbaugh. They usually, though, talk about a small portion of what Mr. Hanson discusses here, at any one time.

    The fact that Yasshole Arafu*& got a Nobel Peace Prize, combined with Michigan’s Massive Masticating Masturbating Motherfu&*^% agreeing with all the Islamofascists that the US should die a horrible death, just go to show how bad things have gotten for the Left.

    If you’re not reading Victor Davis Hanson on a regular basis, you should.

    His writings continue to inspire and educate me personally, and he offers the hope that all is not yet lost in a nation whose academia is dominated by ignorant, pacifistic, socialistic, utopian liberals.

    He’s the closest our age comes to a true genius in political history and philosophy.

    LC Joseph Dromedary growls and barks:

    fdcol63

    I couldn’t agree more. Plus his writing is free of the self agrandizing rhetoric and hyperbole of the “look at me and all I know” journalists.

    He is easy to read, understand and, fortunately, agree with.

    LC Tom growls and barks:

    Hanson is incredible. His book “The Western Way of War” had me rethinking alot more than just Greek Hoplite warfare. One of the best thinkers in the profession these days.

    O/T:

    Any ideas on the kind of gift my wife might appreciate for Christmas?

    Before you suggest “a new man”, Bishop, I’ve already considered that option..but none of the men I’ve approached so far have shown any interest in my proposal, even though I offered this high-tech, British-made device as part of the deal.

    As for hand gloves, don’t even go there, Spats.

    Good article but the question has already been decided – the current DemsLeft is moving towards becoming a de facto Communist Party of the USA, i.e. the USSA and CPUS, with ultim intent/design to being a mere Sovietized Soviet Republic under OWG controlled from Commie Asia [Russia-China]. AND AS LONG AS THE CLINTONS LEAD/COFFER THEM, IT WILL BE SO – already females are on Amerikan State TV calling for the “women’s/feminine touch”, read HAIL HILLARY! LIBERALISM, NEW LIBERALISM, PLURALISM, CENTRISM, ETC – THESE ARE JUST PC, FEEL-GOOD, DIVERSIONIST BY-WORDS FOR DESPOTIC REGUL-COMMAND SOCIALISM, COMMAND HYPER-GOVT., COMMUNISM, AND SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST WORLD ORDER [SWO-CWO] THAT FOR THE TIME BEING WON’T BE ADMITTED OR PORTRAYED AS SUCH UNTIL ITS TOO LATE FOR AMERICANS TO CHANGE ANYTHING SHORT OF ARMED REVOLUTION – you know, SECULAR ETHICS/MORALISM!? The Failed Left will NOT accept or tolerate America NOT waging war(s) for Empire – so POWER-MAD/SELFISH/MATERIALIST are they that they prefer to destroy the world or create a NWO of the permanently failed, failing, and regressed, than to cure the defects in their own ideology. Communists are nothing more than WARLORDS, CRIMINALS-MAFIACRATS, BANDITS, SEPARATISTS, ROBBER BARONS, AND PROFITEERS…etc. GONE LEGAL AND POLITICAL, with the LEFTIST-SOCIALIST/UTOPIAN STATE another PC byword for UNILATERAL, UNCONDITIONAL, UNCHALLENGEABLE, PC LEGAL SLAVERY, PEONAGE, SERVANTHOOD AND TRIBUTE.

    Give her one of these.

    Unless your wife has already seen that “She-Mote Control,” in which case maybe that gift would not be in your best interests. (^_^)

    BTW (& OT): Several people have told Tsuki that she should put “LC” in front of her name, but she does not know for sure what it means. Would someone please tell her??

    Note: Tao Libra says he thinks “LC” means “Loyal Citizen,” but he is not sure because he scorns titles of any kind; but he is sometimes an ideologue who does things for no reason at all except a Matter of Principle (and one can hear the capitalized M & P when he says it, too).

    Mark, now that’s a winning product. I asked Ellie if I could have one and she replied:
    “Go ahead, it will make your prostate checks go so much easier with it lodged sideways
    in your ample rump.”

    I still don’t understand women-speak fluently, but I think that means “no”.

    Tsuki, Mark lives in the UK, so he can not possess the sort of remote control device that you recommended.

    And yes, LC stands for Loyal Citizen. It’s a self-given prefix; not really a title, so it’s safe for a US citizen to have.

    PS. Did Spats send you a copy of the GLOR’s 2004 Advent Calendar? It features some wonderfully artistic pictures of the Glorious Ladies of the Rott in all their s/n glory.

    [No, Mark, I haven't gotten around to it yet.  I just a couple days ago got around to checking that mailbox.

    I'll get to it at some point.  -LSI]

    Tsuki wanted to try “LC” on for size. She thinks it is a little snug, and maybe the hem needs lowered, but it is not too bad. (^_^)

    Tsuki, Mark lives in the UK, so he can not possess the sort of remote control device that you recommended.

    Now Tsuki is embarrassed. She feels like she has been sitting at a party talking to someone about how they ought to take up hiking because she likes it so much, only to discover that they are sitting in a wheelchair.

    Gomen nasai. Tsuki did not mean to call attention to your affliction. (^_^)

    Joseph’s writing does make sense if you apply your own punctuation and spacing. Just read it slowly, and maybe twice.

    Since Lord Spatula I, K&T pointed that out to us a while back, I’ve found his (Joe’s) comments much more lucid.

    Special Ed, Half-Vast Conspirator growls and barks:

    Y’know, I’ve been spending quite a little time over at Atrios’ site lately. I’m trying to get them to explain why they believe the way they do, because I just don’t get it. I go there because they seem to be pretty literate and are prolific commenters. Haloscan (which handles the comments section there) blows chunks, however.

    There is some natural derision and name calling, but with any luck, they’ll eventually realize that I’m serious. It might help if I was a little less confrontational, and didn’t mention that I’m not a cat lover.

    Apparently they’re quite fond of felines.

    I’ll let you all know what I find out, if I can wrap my tiny bit of brain around it.

    OK, so you don’t like cats. A mental deficiency, to be sure (;)) but that doesn’t warrant namecalling. Good luck in getting coherency out of them.

    LC Jon , Imperial Hunter growls and barks:

    Mr. Hanson is required reading. Just not required widely enough. My humble admiration for his uncanny ability at crystalline summation, and unerring skewering.

    Special Ed, you’re wasting your time with the Morally Atrophied Attriettesr!!! Besides, VDH just said all you need to know about why they believes as they do, less motive, which is that they’re afraid. They’re afraid of responsibility, reality, personal (as opposed to ‘group’) morality, afraid to fight, fearful that someone will take away their dope or that they might actually have to raise the children that result from hedonism… and the list goes on and on. It could be summed up in two words: reality denial, or wishful thinking, though that term is the height of the oxymoronic.

    Only their own traumatic collisions with reality will have the possibility to change their views, and most of them are so cocooned by wealth, privilege or occupation that they are insulated from the effcts of their idiocy. When their particular Twin Towers of Illusion come tumbling down they may have an Epiphany.

    I know you have my best interests at heart, HDd, but the mere thought of using a gun to defend oneself against a continually nagging wife fills me with absolute horror. Although no British jury would find me guilty, based on a plea of “temporary loss of sanity brought on by extreme provocation (of the nagging kind)”, it’s still not for me.

    Sorry, Heather, but you’ll just have to wait until I’ve found a more conventional way of getting rid of my wife.

    Please don’t ever wish that on me, BC.

    I’m now faced with this little dilemma: How do I approach my favourite American female, in a subtle manner, to ask if she is equipped with all the right bits and pieces?

    Trust you to torture me like this so near to Christmas, BC.
