“Opening minds and angravating liberals since 2001”
“I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.”
My Friends and Fellow Legal Punching Bags:
Not sure how this is going to work. Started writing this the other day, I think I may have had a plan where it was supposed to go but not sure.
That said, something happened on my way into work this morning that might dovetail with my original idea.
I was driving up a side road approaching a larger road. As I was a few hundred feet from the intersection, I see this giant Buick driven by a Liberal turn into the road.
How did I know he was a Liberal? Well, I don’t know for sure, but stick with me.
I could not help but notice two things. The first is he was looking more or less back whence he came. The second was he was driving smack down the middle of the block and veering, this clearly predicated by his distraction.
I hit my horn as he is closing in on me, he snaps out of his daydream, sees he is about to run into another car that has no place to go because by now he is almost entirely in my lane.
What does this genius do?
He swerves out of the way and curses at me for beeping my horn. “I saw you…what is your… problem” was the condensed version without the profanity.
So, let’s recap. Someone is driving a large car, not watching where he is going, driving on the wrong side of the road. A citizen (me) hits his horn to alert the gerbil as to his condition and I elicit a profane tirade for my trouble.
That is why I think he is a Liberal. (Of course he could be a loony tune from the Right but his behavior is more constant with the Left: “I did something wrong, you caught me, it is your fault.”)
For some reason I saw that as the nexus of the woes of the world as visited upon us by the Left.
Now, where was I….
I guess to touch on what Zander said last week, there is something going on that troubles me.
OK there are a lot of things going on and most do more than merely trouble me. Some make me want to chew nails others make me so uncertain about the future that all seems to be in vain.
But when an absolute Lefty like Baldwin hits the bull’s eye with a statement such as: “New York City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity that is desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign”, you have to take that somewhat seriously.
In all candor, had he been let off with a warning, none of this ever would have happened. He would have said whatever he needed to the cop and went off on his merry way.
Like it or not, Baldwin ought to have been aware that he was breaking the law. So, he really has no excuse. And just like the guy that nearly ran into me, rather than accept the ramifications of his actions, he lashes out and makes himself appear as a bigger buffoon than he already does.
The fact that his statement was 100% spot on is merely a footnote to the larger issue.
That being that laws are for the “other people.”
And in the eyes of the Libs, WE the PEOPLE are the other people.
Recall that the Left were all giddy about OBAMA’S OBAMACARE? They could not wait for its implementation. Then when the inevitable occurred and we found out it was a house of cards built on a foundation of lies the Left could not understand what happened.
“Hey, I was dropped by my insurance carrier!”
“Wow, man, I can’t sign up for the new health care plan on the interwebs!”
“Dude, my insurance rate just doubled and now I also have a huge deductible!”
In other words, they did not expect all the things we KNEW were going to happen, happen.
Well, more accurately, they did not expect all the things we KNEW were going to happen to happen to THEM.
You see, in the Libs jaundiced eye, laws are for the “other people.”
Be it obeying a traffic law with your bike or your car, be it with respect even to an illegal “law”, or using the legislative process to line your pockets and those of your friends, family and contributors, the Left think those pesky little laws do not apply to them.
Even as we speak, that horrible little woman, Nasty Pelosi, has not decided whether or not the Dems are going to participate in the Benghazi hearings. Like it would make a difference. Again, this is the Left subverting the Law so that when the hammer comes down, they can say that it was not a fair proceeding.
Just like OBAMA’S OBAMACARE.
And we are stuck with that, for now.
But, when the ranks of the Dem “leadership” begin to thin due to many of them busy covering their butts, they will find out that We the People are not playing.
(For some reason, I see Biff handing out presidential pardons to the subpoenaed on the way in to the hearings, and alleged AG Stedman setting aside convictions on the way out. Truly, God help them if that happens, that might be enough to have the whole shop collapse.)
And that is where we are today. Each and every political hot potato is ignored by the SRM (though, that worm is slowly starting to turn) and replaced with some bovine scatology such as the so-called “global warming” or alleged AG Stedman’s latest mantra that Whites are racists, ignoring the irony let alone the untruth of that statement.
So, class, let’s recap:
You are riding you bike in violation of the traffic laws. What do you say?
“I did something wrong, you caught me, it is your fault.”
Now, you are oblivious to on-coming traffic because you are not paying attention and when you are alerted you curse like a sailor. What is your excuse?
“I did something wrong, you caught me, it is your fault.”
You allow four Americans to be tortured, killed and dismembered (or any one of an insanely long litany of unanswered questions, to be polite.) What is the next step.
Well, when you get this high on the Liberal Totem pole, a singularity occurs and the laws of physics break down.
“We did nothing wrong, you caught me, it is your fault.”
See, it all makes sense now.
