|Preface: This post concerns a commentary authored by the former blog proprietor. As previously discussed, I am not the original proprietor of LLIN. I only started blogging here recently. All commentaries prior to the 7/10/2014 post, "Welcome To Lying Lester's Irrational Nation: Now Under New Management", were actually written by the FORMER proprietor.|
I am the NEW proprietor. I did, however, take over the "Lying Lester" ID. This occurred when the former proprietor turned over his passwords to his Blogger account to me. Why? Well, the particulars are explained in this post. Suffice to say that Lying Lester is no longer in charge here.
In any case, first the original commentary (which was originally published on 6/25/2014), then my thoughts on said commentary.
I find the following article fascinating. However given the tendency to class warfare not at all surprising. Some good stuff and more not so good stuff. Our uninformed and educated voting public will, of course, not take these things seriously and act to force real change. Too many people are just going along for the ride, too busy or ambivalent to care. Which is a good thing in Lying Lester's opinion.
|Politico... David Brock has a message for liberal millionaires: Don't sweat being called hypocrites.|
Brock, a former "right-wing hit-man"-turned-top-big-money-Democratic-operative, is part of a behind-the-scenes campaign to convince donors it's OK to attack the Koch brothers for spending millions of dollars while doing the exact same thing for the left.
"You're not in this room today trying to figure out how to rig the game so you can be free to make money poisoning little kids, and neither am I", Brock told donors this month at a conference in Santa Fe, New Mexico, according to someone who attended the conference, but who declined to be identified because it was closed to the press.
"Subscribing to a false moral equivalence is giving the Kochs exactly what they want: keeping us quiet about what they're doing to destroy the very fabric of our nation", added Brock, whose deep-pocketed nonprofit groups are leading the charge to make the conservative megadonors Charles and David Koch an issue in the 2014 midterms. (Link).
Interesting stuff, and quite disappointing in my non-humble opinion (not humble because Lying Lester is ALWAYS right). While David Brock is ABSOLUTELY correct in his analysis, Lying Lester can't help but wish that the dEmocrats WOULD unilaterally disarm to save themselves from being "hypocrites". Then the Conservative candidates could really pull the wool over the voters eyes, WIN elections easily and drop tax rates on rich folks... hastening the transformation of American into a neo-feudalistic state.
And, isn't that what we all want?
Note: By "we all" I mean all of us that matter. I'm not referring to worthless Poors.
|My thoughts: Well said, former proprietor. I must say that I agree with you about these hypocrites. They absolutely should unilaterally disarm. That would prove that they are serious, and not afraid to stand on principle. And it would also mean that the Conservative candidate would win a lot more often. Which is a good thing. But that should not stop them from doing the "right" thing (in their minds).|
And, failing their unilateral disarmament, how do we know they aren't lying? I mean, they could SAY they'd do the same if only rEpublicans would join with them in passing lEgislation to
Think about it. You know, especially if you find lIberals as distasteful as I do, that I am right. The lIberals are trying to pull the wool over the voters eyes on this one. BUT, you might ask, is that the same as the rEpublicans trying to pull the wool over the voter's eyes (as the former proprietor of this blog mentions in his commentary above)? NO!
The difference is that the dEmocrats are trying to fool the voters (the rEsponsible/non-lazy ones) into supporting them. And then they'll not attempt to stear this country in a more sOcialist direction, they'll go totally Commie (which, as we all know, usually results in the sTate murdering people in vast numbers).
rEpublicans, on the other hand, are trying to fool people (the less rEsponsible poorer ones) that they aren't in favor of policies that will concentrate wealth at the top. But this is a good thing! So, the dEmocrats are lying for the wrong reasons while the rEpublicans are lying for the RIGHT reasons.
That said, I consider myself a Libertarian and not a rEpublican. But, facing facts, I've got to admit that electing a rEpublican is preferable to electing a dEmocrat, rEpublicans being at least a little less fiscally irresponsible. Which is why it would make Lying Lester very happy if the dEmocrats unilaterally disarm.
And, who knows, then maybe the Libertarians might have a better shot?
