Just How Progressive Are You?

I know…

This may or may not be the appropriate place to ask the question ” Just how progressive are you?” …

But I’m still going to ask anyway.

Just in case you need affirmation that you may not be as progressive as Herr Obama and his liberal minions may want you to be, there is a quiz that you can take…

Just for fun.

The quiz: “How Progressive Are You” is  created and hosted by the Center For American Progress; which according to Wikipedia (as well as most Conservatives worth their salt) is ‘a left wing public policy research and advocacy organization who’s website states that the organization is “dedicated to improving the lives of Americans through progressive ideas and action”.The Center presents a (highly) liberal viewpoint on economic issues.’

I took  the quiz.

My results?

1-score

I was going for the “Ultimate Conservative”…

Want to see how you score? Take the QUIZ here.

Don’t Believe the Reports – 1,500 Washington State Caucus Goers Locked Out

Early reports that Mitt Romney “won” in Washington State are probably highly tainted. 

The establishment GOP elites of Western Washington are all gung-ho for the “frontrunner” but conservative,  agricultural eastern Washington, intensely concerned with the Agenda 21 plan to control rural activities and blow up dams is not easy pickings for the globalists of the west coast.  The Tri-City Herald reports the Benton County,  Kennewick caucus LOCKED OUT 1,500 people who’d waited in line for an hour to get in!  Full Story

This may just be the tip of the iceberg.  Who knows what kind of shenanigans have yet to surface?  The state party has a long record of dubious, dirty tricks.

 

Origin of Left and Right

The terms left and right are used to refer to two opposed political ideologies or factions. In the United States, Conservatives are called the “right” and Liberals are called the “left”.

Have you ever wondered how the left-right terms got started?

The terms “left” and “right” originated in the French Revolution of 1789 (the guillotine!). Members of the French National Assembly divided themselves into two groups:

  • Supporters of the king sat to the president’s right.
  • Supporters of the revolution sat to the president’s left.

Blah, blah, blah.

Yawn….

There’s a better explanation for the origin of “left” and “right.” It’s in the Bible:

“The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.” -Ecclesiastes 10:2

Can’t get any simpler than that! :D

Election 2012: McCain Redux?

Following the McCain disaster of 2008, which resulted in the tragedy of Barack Hussein Obama moving into the White House, we of the conservative persuasion were hoping (and praying) that the people of this country –  particularly republicans, were going to wake up to the precarious predicament this nation found itself in.

The 2010 election result indicated that many of us were indeed coming around, as the TEA Party movement arose out of nothing and helped to change the balance of power in the House of Representatives, as well as increase the number of conservative office holders all across America.

Since that time,  conservatives have been hoping that the momentum thus established would carry over into the election of 2012, and not only increase the number of conservatives in the House, change the balance of power in the Senate, but most importantly, put a true conservative in the White House.

It remains to be seen whether or not that is going to happen, and I have to admit I am not a little discouraged at this point, given how high Mitt Romney is polling. I had hoped republicans would have learned by now that RINOs are not the way to go.

A recent poll has only served to increase my level of concern.

Republicans Nationwide Are Similar in Composition to 2008 

Remain more likely to be conservative, married, and religious

by Frank Newport, Jeffrey M. Jones, and Lydia Saad

PRINCETON, NJ — The Republican Party in 2011 looks similar, demographically and ideologically, to the Republican Party that nominated John McCain in 2008. As a group, Republicans continue to be more likely than average to be male, white, married, and religious, and to describe their political views as “conservative.”

These results are based on a special Gallup analysis of the demographic and ideological composition of the U.S. population today (based on Gallup Daily tracking from June through August 2011) versus at the start of 2008 (from January through March, when the GOP presidential nomination was being decided).

For this analysis, the Republican population is defined as those who either identify as Republicans, or who identify as independents but say they lean toward the Republican Party. Thirty-seven percent of Americans identified as or leaned Republican from January-March 2008, and 40% identified as Republicans from June-August 2011.

Detailed below are the major differences between Republicans and the larger U.S. adult population, and changes since 2008.

1. Republicans are much more conservative than the national average, as they were in 2008. Yet despite the high profile of conservative Tea Party movement activists within the Republican Party over the past several years, Republicans as a whole are not substantially more conservative now. Over this period, conservative identification has grown by two percentage points among all Americans, and by three points among Republicans.

This doesn’t mean, of course, that conservative Republicans are not more active now than they were in 2008. But the overall ideological composition of the GOP has not changed materially — with roughly two in three Republicans and Republican leaners identifying as politically conservative.

You can read the rest of the poll at this link.

_______________________________

I realize the 2012 election is still quite a ways off, and much could happen between now and then, but I had hoped to see more of a conservative surge by this point, and that has not yet materialized.

I hope, for the future of our country, that it soon will.

Itching For a Class War in America

When news came last January 8 of a shooter in Tucson, Arizona, killing six people and wounding Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, the media and the Left were quick to demonize conservatives and Republicans before we even knew anything about the killer. They quickly blamed “right wing hate rhetoric” for 22-year-old Jared Loughner’s killings, although it turns out that Loughner is a psycho whose motives for the massacre, while unclear, were not political.

A week later, before an audience of 14,000 at a memorial honoring the victims, Obama called for more civil political discourse in America:

“at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized…it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we’re talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds…. And I believe that for all our imperfections, we are full of decency and goodness, and that the forces that divide us are not as strong as those that unite us.”

Obama’s words evaporated like dewdrops in the morning sun, instantly forgotten by the Left, if they even had paid attention in the first place. Self-satisfied narcissists that they are, they think his words applied only to those dastardly Tea Party conservatives.

And so, not only are the Left not talking to us “in a way that heals, not a way that wounds,” they’re ratcheting up the hate rhetoric to heights never seen before. The Left deliberately are provoking a race and class war in America.

This is Part One, on how the Left are itching for a class war. Part Two, on the Left provoking a race war, will be published tomorrow.

Exhibit No. 1

On his show “Real Time” on April 9, 2011, self-styled “comedian” Bill Maher — he of the permanent self-satisfied smirk — called for a class war in America. This is what he said:

“As long as we have three wars going, America needs to add one more: a class war.”


Exhibit No. 2

On August 21, 2011, Democratic Congresswoman and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi foments class warfare by claiming that “the rich” won’t pay taxes because “they want to be immortal,” and that the GOP “hates kids” and deliberately keeps wages low to force people to pay bank fees.

What the former House Speaker did not tell her audience is that she is one of the richest women in America. In 2007, Nancy Pelosi was the sixth wealthiest member of the U.S. House of Representatives, with an estimated average net worth of $62.5 million.

Exhibit No. 3

On August 26, 2011, as described by Buck Sexton of The Blaze, at a protest sing-along against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker at the state capitol, a member of the Red & Anarchist Action Network (RAAN) held up a huge banner saying “Class War” and made this threat: “All you f**king Tea Party Baggers, It’s coming, get ready.”

To see the video, go here.

RAAN is a group with “a history of street protests and union pickets which turn violent.” The anarchist group even boasts on its website of having undertaken a number of confrontations with authorities and violence against political parties and banks. See the list here.

Part Two of this 2-part series, on the Left provoking a civil war, is HERE.

Newsweek Going After Michele Bachmann

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, a TEA Party favorite, is one of the 66 House Republicans who refused to vote for Obama’s disastrous debt deal, aka the Budget Control Addicted to Debt Act of 2011. The passage of that act immediately led S&P to downgrade America’s credit rating.

Bachmann is also polling well among Republican voters. And so, of course, like a pack of ravenous wolves, the Left are already pouncing on her, with Hollywood’s pro-gay brigade leading the way.

Now the MSM are joining the jihad.

The upcoming edition of Newsweek magazine has a cover story on Michele Bachmann titled, “The Queen of Rage.” This is the photo of Bachmann which Newsweek has on its cover.

Tell me if you don’t think she looks just a tad crazy.

Bachmann made the mistake of letting Newsweek‘s photographer Chris Buck take the picture.

When will Conservatives ever learn that the MSM are not our friends; will never be objective, even less our friends; and will do their utmost to make Conservatives look bad.

If you want a friend, get a dog!

H/t beloved fellow Siegfried.

The Illusion of Leadership

Like a third rate magician Obama tries to divert our attention  with tricks and illusions which are meant to give us the impression of leadership.

Message to Obama: that crap might have worked in 2008 on weak minded obamabots and other guilt ridden liberals, but America is starting to see the light as we Conservatives continue to expose you for what you really are, a charlatan.

There are three main types of leadership styles:

Participative Leadership: This is probably the best leadership style followed in the business world. In participative leadership style, though the leader is responsible for taking the final decision, he is open for suggestions from team members, which can influence the decision.

Autocratic Leadership: In this leadership, the leader solely carries out the decision making process. The autocratic leadership style is a very suitable method for managing team members who require close supervision to get the work done.

Laissez Faire Leadership: In the laissez faire leadership, the leader leaves it on the team members to do the work which they are supposed to. This is a good style to be implemented if the members are skilled enough and understand their responsibilities properly.

The trouble is, your leadership style involves partying, vacationing, golfing and playing basketball while leaving a bunch of ass-kissers in the media to carry your water and make excuses for your constant ineptness and aloofness.

In case it has escaped your attention there are several crises going on in this country as well as in the world, I’ll be glad to point out a few to you to bring you up to date on current affairs:

  • Economic crisis in this country with a debt of $14,000,000,000,000.
  • Rioting and mass murder in several countries in the Middle East.
  • Thousands dead after the Japan earthquake and Tsunami and now a looming nuclear disaster.

Just to name a few.

 Now if you can drag your sorry butt away from your party hearty schedule to engage yourself  in your duties as President and Commander-in-Chief maybe the world wouldn’t be looking at us  as the laughing stock of the world. But then again maybe that’s your plan all along, to weaken us in every way possible, financially, economically and militarily. I know you don’t give a damn about this country or its people, that you are nothing but a marxist socialist Soros puppet, but we are going to correct that One Big Assed Mistake America made in 2008, next year. You can bet the house on it!
