If Democrats Had Their Way…

If Democrats Had Their Way…

Remember New Coke? It was a dismal failure and the company scrapped it. How about three slice toasters? They were supposed to be the rage once, too. But nobody bought them and they disappeared into the dustbin of history.

That’s how life works in the private sector. If people don’t buy and the product doesn’t deliver, it disappears. Companies and individuals are forced to develop winning strategies in order to survive. If not, they perish.

The policies of the Democratic Party are not like that. The policies of the Democratic Party — high taxes, exorbitant union contracts and pensions, excessive government regulation, gun control, dysfunctional schools, etc. — continue to produce one failed program after another, yet they are fully supported by an average of 52% of the voting public. If they operated in the private sector, they would be forced into bankruptcy. However, because they are funded by our tax dollars, they have a never-ending spigot of cash flowing into their coffers. In essence, they are rewarded for failing.

Detroit is a city that has been under complete Democratic control for over forty years. And when I say complete, I mean complete. Every official, every policy, every decision affecting Detroit has come 100% from the Democratic Party and their supporters. The result? Bankruptcy.

Detroit is $2.5 billion in debt. That’s billion, with a “b”. Thousands of homes, buildings, and businesses are vacant and abandoned, and two thirds of the city’s street lights do not work.

Detroit is America’s most dangerous city with a violent crime rate five times higher than the national average. It’s the murder capital of the country, and — because it’s under Democratic control — Detroit has strict gun control laws.

In short, Detroit is a hellhole. A man-made, Democratic-Party-created hellhole. And it’s exactly what all of America would look like if Democrats had their way.

Detroit is not an aberration. It is a direct result of Democratic leadership and how applying the principles of the Democratic Party actually play out in real life. It’s as simple as 1 + 1 = 2. You do this action, you get this result.

If Detroit shows all of us the natural consequence of what happens when the Democratic Party gets its way, why do people support it? Why do tens of millions of Americans continue to vote for Democrats? The answer, I believe, consists of five distinct elements within the Democratic Party.

In the first group are the hardcore socialists and communists that form the leadership and financial backing of the Democratic Party. These are the folks that actually hate America and want to destroy it. (See http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2014/03/22/99549/). They are the corrupt union leaders, the financial donors, the advisors, the radical college professors and teachers, the leaders of various “equality” groups and causes, the militant feminists, the Islamic extremists, education officials and administrators, and the actual politicians themselves. I estimate their numbers to comprise 5% of less of the Democratic Party.

To this first group, Detroit is a shining example of how they would like all of America to be. Many of them are atheists, or outright satanists, and they hate not only America, but also Christianity, because they see Christians as the primary roadblock that keeps them from turning America into a Communist dictatorship. Death, murder, kidnapping, and rape mean nothing to them if it helps to accomplish their objective.

The second group is big business and union members. The majority of those in this group do not hate America, however they can develop intense hatred toward any individual or group that threatens their current financial status. They support the Democratic Party because it pays.

For big business, that means bailouts, favorable loans, taxpayer subsidies, and government regulation to create monopolies and eliminate competition. You know who I’m talking about: Hollywood, Facebook, Yahoo, Apple, GE, Wall Street, owners of professional sports teams, etc.

For union members, it means maintaining their high salaries, pensions, insurance, and paid holidays. You’ll find many teachers in this group. All together, this second group comprises about 20% of the Democratic Party. They vote for their own personal gain, regardless of how much it hurts their country or their fellow citizens.

The third group consists of the media. I estimate them to comprise 5% or less of the Democratic Party. Like the first group, many of them are hardcore socialists and communists who also hate America, but their hatred is cloaked with a thinly disguised intellectual disdain. They consider themselves smarter than everyone else. Though they are intelligent, they suffer from a total lack of wisdom. If their intellectual superiority is threatened, they can revert to most violent and animalistic of natures, all condoned through intellectual justification.

This third group — the media — do everything they can to obscure reality in order to confuse and indoctrinate the fourth group: Useful Idiots.

“Useful idiot” sounds like a harsh term, but it was actually coined by the Left to describe many of their followers. (See http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2013/12/29/are-you-a-useful-idiot/)

It saddens me to say that I have many friends, acquaintances, and co-workers in this group. They are nice people. Many of them would give you the shirt of their back, or rush to your aid at the first sign of an emergency. Sadly, they just don’t know very much about history or politics.

Useful idiots have been dumbed down at school and at home. Now in their 20′s, 30′s, 40′s, 50′s, 60′s, and beyond, they continue to believe everything they’re told by the mainstream media. They have been exposed to alternate information only in the form of ridicule. Many of them are so busy working, earning a living, raising families, paying bills, and looking for love that they just don’t have time to read and educate themselves.

I was in the position of not having time to read myself until I was laid off a couple of years ago and actually had time to research what was happening in the country. That’s when I discovered this site, Commieblaster, Moral Matters, and many more.

In this group you will also find many females who have been taught to accept abortion and feminism, and many males who accept abortion and feminism as a means to seduce and sleep with the aforementioned females. (See http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2013/11/15/an-open-letter-to-obama-supporters/) I estimate useful idiots to comprise a full 40% of the Democratic Party.

The fifth and final leg of the Democratic Party are what I call Useful Leeches. This group consists of all races and ages, and they are far worse than the useful idiots. Useful idiots actually mean well. Useful leeches are angry, bitter, resentful, and believe that the world owes them a living. They survive on government handouts: food stamps, welfare, Section-8, disability, etc., and they hate themselves because of it.

Useful leeches have no desire to improve their station in life and would love nothing better than to drag the entire country down to their level of misery and poverty. Not surprisingly, this group tends to be extremely racist and intolerant. They live in a constant state of fear.

The hardcore socialists and communists of the first and third groups love useful leeches, because they are so easily manipulated. They make excellent shock troops, and can be employed to strike fear among the population and silence critics on the right.

If there’s any hope of saving our country, it lies with the useful idiots. With extremely few exceptions, the members of the other groups are not going to change. Useful idiots CAN change if they are approached and educated correctly. A friendly conversation here, a book or article passed along there, and slowly but surely the tide can be turned.

If we can begin to sway even 5-10% of the useful idiots, we can tilt the balance of our country back to its Constitutional foundation. We can’t look to others to do this. The work is ours. The future of our country rests with us.

(Thanks to my friend, Alan, for suggesting this topic.)

Hmmm…

On a certain social site, the question is often asked, “What’s on your mind?”

Well, here’s what’s on my mind today.

The recent goings on of A&E versus Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty..

The hullabaloo that was made over his personal; and might I add, faith-based, opinions regarding homosexuality..

Amongst other things..

That resulted in his ‘suspension’ from the show, proved one point that many a conservative blogger has said repeatedly.

That being if enough people, unite under a banner; regardless of the cause..

Things can be accomplished that otherwise would more than likely never happen.

All you have to do is look at the backlash of support that Robertson received from viewers all over this country..

Which resulted in a reversal of A&E’s liberalistic decision and thus doing away with said ‘suspension’ to see that.

Now just imagine if you will…

Imagine enough people uniting under the banner of restoring this Nation..

Replacing the values and morality that have disappeared in years gone by.

Imagine enough people gathering together; speaking out; standing up and not only voicing their opinions but using their votes to replace those who do not hear the voice of the people but act contrary to the good of this nation.

We have a chance to do just that.

I know it’s only January, but it’s never too soon to act.. to unite… to strengthen our cause.. to prepare..

Because November will be here soon enough and with it the opportunity to change the faces of those who represent us.

United we stand… divided, we fall.

The fate of our Nation is in our hands..

Choose wisely, America.

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.

 

 

Hitler’s Speech Before The Passing Of The “Enabling Act”

Your Thoughts on this please.

I was looking for a link for the “Enabling Act” yesterday , and found this speech Hitler gave prior to the Act being passed. Kind of struck me as being very odd.

We all know how this turned out. I’m thinking skippy is just bypassing the fake speeches and going right for a frontal assault on Christianity.

Any thoughts on this speech? How it may correlate to what is happening today.

PS. Lets stop calling them Nazis. Call them what they were.

Remind you of any group of people you know today? Hmm, think about it as it may come to you.

I'll wait as I'm sure you'll figure it out.

I’ll wait as I’m sure you’ll figure it out.

Good. I knew you would.    :lol:

In his speech before the Reichstag on 23 March 1933, just before the Enabling Act is passed, Adolf Hitler speaks out:

“By its decision to carry out the political and moral cleansing of our public life, the Government is creating and securing the conditions for a really deep and inner religious life. The advantages for the individual which may be derived from compromises with atheistic organizations do not compare in any way with the consequences which are visible in the destruction of our common religious and ethical values.

Act (page 2 with signatures)

The Government will treat all other denominations with objective and impartial justice. It cannot, however, tolerate allowing membership of a certain denomination or of a certain race being used as a release from all common legal obligations, or as a blank cheque for unpunishable behavior, or for the toleration of crimes. [The national Government will allow and confirm to the Christian denominations the enjoyment of their due influence in schools and education.] And it will be concerned for the sincere cooperation between Church and State.

The struggle against the materialistic ideology and for the erection of a true people’s community (Volksgemeinschaft) serves as much the interests of the German nation as of our Christian faith. …The national Government, seeing in Christianity the unshakable foundation of the moral and ethical life of our people, attaches utmost importance to the cultivation and maintenance of the friendliest relations with the Holy See.The rights of the churches will not be curtailed; their position in relation to the State will not be changed.”

Wednesday Morning Chuckles.

Yes today is “Piss Off A Liberal Day.”  If you know any Liberals forward this and thank them for giving us the most corrupt, inept, dishonest president our Country has ever had!
Damn, –Oh, I’m so disappointed.  I thought it was Piss on a Liberal Day.
Says it all, doesn't it?

Big Pharma made $711 bln overcharging seniors and disabled

The 11 largest drug companies have made $711 billion in profits in just a decade, largely due to overcharging Medicare, which does not seek out competitive prices and uses taxpayer funds to support Big Pharma.

Since Medicare is prohibited from purchasing drugs based on their cost, its prescription drug program has been making large payouts to drug companies that have overcharged the program for years, according to an analysis by Health Care for America Now (HCAN).

“There is nothing wrong with a company making profits – that’s what their supposed to do. But the drug industry’s profits are excessive as a result of overcharging American consumers and taxpayers,” writes Ethan Rome, executive director of HCAN, for the Huffington Post. “We pay significantly more than any other country for the exact same drugs.”

Rome notes that per capita drug spending in the US is 40 percent higher than in Canada, 75 percent greater than in Japan, and nearly 300 percent greater than Denmark.

The 11 largest global prescription drug companies have skyrocketed since the Medicare Part D prescription drug program was launched in 2006. The government health program enables seniors and the disabled to buy taxpayer-subsidized coverage for many of the most widely disseminated medicines. But Medicare is prohibited from negotiating prices with pharmaceutical companies or seeking out more cost-effective drugs, thereby costing seniors, the disabled and American taxpayers billions of dollars more than some argue the drugs are worth.

Some lawmakers have recently urged Congress to consider changing the law, for the sake of cutting unnecessarily high costs. Wisconsin Democratic State Senator Jon Erpenbach told Wisconsin Public Radio that his state could save $1.2 billion over ten years if Congress were to allow Medicare to partake in prescription drug negotiations.

“I understand that pharmaceutical companies are for-profit companies,” he told the station last week. “I understand there’s a lot of research and development that goes into the products that they produce. All of that being said, it shouldn’t cost us more to get that kind of pharmaceuticals we need to have.”

But according to the HCAN analysis, Big Pharma spends very little on research and development. Even though pharmaceuticals cite research as a costly part of its operations, the money spent on this is exaggerated, Rome claims. Drug companies spend 19 times more on marketing than on research and development – another reason why the industry reaps so much in profits each year, he adds.

US President Barack Obama has long promised to repeal the prohibition on Medicare negotiations with drug companies, but has so far failed to do so. The Veterans Administration currently negotiates drug prices, and manufacturers argue that letting Medicare take over the negotiations would make no difference to the industry. Supporters of drug manufacturers also continue to emphasize the high costs of research and development.

But the Congressional Budget Office found that if Medicare were to receive the same bulk-purchasing discounts on prescription drugs that state Medicaid programs receive, the federal government would cut its spending by $137 billion over 10 years.

“Our politicians give all kinds of tax breaks and subsidies to big corporations that don’t need them: Big Oil. Wall Street. Companies that ship our jobs overseas,” Rome writes. “Every gift to a special interest, including allowing Big Pharma to overcharge Medicare, is an expenditure of scarce tax dollars. That’s called wasteful spending.”

WND EXCLUSIVE

DID NAVY MAKE PEARL HARBOR MISTAKE AGAIN?

Navy spokesman explains why carriers lined up in a row

Published: 12 hours ago

A photo of five U.S. nuclear aircraft carriers docked in Norfolk, Va., the world’s largest naval station, has gone viral on the Internet amid speculation the ships could be sitting ducks for a Pearl Harbor-type attack or were docked due to sequestration.

According to a U.S. Navy spokesman who spoke on background to WND/G2Bulletin, the first supposition is false while the second is partially true.

The photo first appeared in early February amid concerns that having the carriers lined up in one location breached long-standing Navy protocol.

One website called it a “Big Mistake in Norfolk! Remember Pearl Harbor 1941″ and “an outrage of epic proportions.”

A caption at another website under a photo of the carriers said the Obama administration had ordered them into harbor for “routine” inspections and that heads of the Navy were flabbergasted by the presumed violation of protocol.

Further comments said that the lineup was the first since Battleship Row in Pearl Harbor  was attacked by the Japanese on Dec. 7, 1941.

I’m posting this in haste, because word has to get out. This is a deliberate betrayal of America. How many WMD attacks would it take to make America unable to fight back? Until now, it would require a few. But with the bulk of our carriers lined up, all our enemies need is one bomb. This can only be deliberate.   ~ TD

Can't argue with that.

 

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure,
the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy,
its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery..”
Winston Churchill

These are possibly the 5 best sentences you’ll ever read: Unfortunately, most voters don’t know this.

1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.

2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them; and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Can you think of any reason for not sharing this?
Neither can I.
