It’s pretty damned patronizing of the ruling class and the president to tell us that we “don’t need to see the photos.” Who are they to decide what we “need” to see and what we don’t? And as Ann Coulter said, these people who are telling us what we “don’t need to see” are all people who have already seen the photos.
How dare you put yourselves in the position of daddy-ing us? That includes republicans who are falling in lockstep with this thinking, as well.
At least 80% of the American people have been waiting for this day to come and now we are told that we can’t “spike our football.” Does this mean excessive celebration in the end zone (Ground Zero) is unbecoming of Americans?
I’ll gladly take the 10 yard penalty to be assessed at the kick-off.
Stop treating us like children who can’t understand everything from our enormous national debt to the propriety of (an honest to God) head shot. I think we can take seeing it. After all, nearly 10 years ago we watched planes full of people crash into buildings full of people, many of whom jumped to their deaths and another plane full of heros who downed it in a field rather than allow it to be used as another missile. We’ve been seeing youtube videos of al Qaeda animals beheading Americans numerous times over the last 10 years.
I think we can handle seeing a photo of a dead bin Laden. I think we deserve to excessively celebrate seeing it.
As I posted yesterday, an additional 150 people are now unemployed in Las Vegas, primarily because charitable donations are down. Those wealthy individuals and corporations no longer have the tax breaks and just like the rest of us, they are feeling the hit of this horrible economy we are in.
The statist’s answer to our problems is to tax the rich MORE. But it should be now proven to every one that it has a devastating effect on the economy and the employment sector. When Boyd Gaming or Harrah’s stop donating a wing or a floor to institutions like Nevada Cancer Institute or Adleson Hospice, people start losing jobs and no one is being hired.
The wealthy are the job creators. Why is that so hard to understand? And how many more episodes like this one, nationwide, do the statists need to create before they get it? The less money the rich spend – or have to spend – the fewer cabbies, cooks and hotel housekeepers there are; the fewer nurses, back office people, lab techs and administrative assistants facilities like NCI employ.
What I find amazing is that the wealthy liberal left and right coasters – the elite, the ruling class, the academicians, the Hollywood “stars” – want more taxes on profitable (or once profitable) corporations, while at the same time, they are spending less and less money themselves.
This is why I believe that liberals suffer from mental illness: they keep doing the same things over and over, they keep doggedly following the same failed philosophy and never learn that it’s just NOT working.
Is this the most dynamic thing you’ve ever seen? Makes you want to run right out there and work for this do-nothing, spend-everything party, lickety-split.
On September 14th, Tim Kaine and his party unveiled this new logo to almost no fanfare and his announcement was about as dynamic as this new logo is.
One blogger comment wonders how much stimulus money and how many jobs were created when this logo was designed. It was my first thought, too. But the longer I looked at the logo, the more the message from the former democrats now Obama drones, came into glaring view.
Just ask yourself: What’s the message?
The democrats trapped in the “circle” of the party of Obama, in a weak and pale version of American blue. What happened to the dark, bold colors of America? They’ve been traded in for one hue off of baby blue. (Remember Ronald Reagan’s bold colors, no more pale pastels “which make it unmistakenly clear where we stand on all issues?” Apparently, the democrats never heard this message.)
The new logo says “a weak, infantile party, inside the protection of the Great Social Changer – Obama.” It says that this party is retreating into the background with the Great Changer in front, in the superior position. The Obama has been given control and all inside the circle are inferior to him. The party of the democrats relegating themselves to the submissive position as no longer the democrat party but the Party of the O. The party of Obama is greater than the party or the people he “represents.” The people are only useful to the greatness of the elites and The Obama.
Could you find a more vacuous tag line? Change that matters. What does that mean, exactly? Change that matters to who? Change that matters how? Change that matters, why? I think you can answer those questions and in different ways than I am. Change that matters to the ruling class, in ways that elevate the ruling class and for the elevation of the ruling class.
This logo makes no statement of America. There are no stars or strips, the colors are off. It’s as though they are setting themselves apart from what America is and was and setting up a future of what America will be – a nation with no true and dynamic character. What is more mundane than the helvetica font? It’s used in print because it’s easy to read, not for it’s eye appeal. The logo is a statement that America has no exceptional identity, nothing that makes it unique, no illustrative past. It’s as though the former democrats – now drones – have no patriotic existence, whatsoever. And worse yet, we are a mundane nation of mundane, inferior citizens.
With this new logo, the democrats have become the party of “O”. Or maybe as one blogger wrote – the party of D’oh! I like to think they are now officially the party of Drones to the O. I cannot believe this logo was ever approved by anyone. And whoever came up with this tag line should be awarded. It’s most definitely going to keep those drones motivated like Hope ‘n Change did.
If you’ve not seen this video by Bill Whittle, or even if you have, explaining the iconography of the Obama brand, it’s worth a watch or a watch again:
Thanks to Sean Hannity for reminding me of Ronald Reagan’s bold colors quote.
