FT204: “The young and dumb vote liberal while the old and wise vote conservative.” —Old Pithy

Fundamental Truth

Having the Ability to give Beautiful Young Women Nice Things helped Charlie Harper get them in Bed

On the show Two and a Half Men there was an episode where Charlie (played by Charlie Sheen) was having a conversation with someone where he was trying to defend himself and the choice he makes in women.  In broke off in mid sentence and said something like, “Yeah, you got me.  Young and dumb.  That’s how I like them.”  Or something like that.

Charlie Harper was about 40 years old.  Rich.  He drank to excess.  Smoked cigars.  Gambled.  Enjoyed strip bars and prostitutes.  And he womanized.  Getting beautiful young women back to his Malibu beach house for one night of passion.  Which was all he wanted.  One night.  The ladies thought he wanted more.  Because of the lies he told them to get them to his Malibu beach house.  And when they left in the morning they expected Charlie to call them.  But he never did.  Which is why he liked his women dumb.  For it was easier getting them into bed.  And out of it.

Charlie was skilled in the art of picking up women.  And what to do with them after picking them up.  Skill gained over years of experience.  And being rich helped, too.  Because being able to give beautiful young women nice things (expensive dinners, going to the best clubs, spending the night at a Malibu beach house, gifts, etc.) got their attention.  They liked that life.  And wanted more of it.  So they went to his bed with him.  Thinking that by doing whatever he wanted there would be more of this glamorous life to come.  But before that could happen Charlie was telling his lies to another young and dumb woman.

Every Communist Dictator that promised a Utopia to their People made their lives Absolutely Horrible

Charlie was engaged a few times.  The last time he was engaged to Chelsea (played superbly by Jennifer Taylor).  Who was a little older than most of the women he took to his bed.  Smart.  And wise.  She had a career.  Though he had a long engagement (for him) it did not last.  Because she could do better.  Eventually leaving him for someone more mature.  In fact, every age-appropriate relationship he had failed.  Because he did not do well unless they were young and dumb.  As Chelsea said one time when leaving after a breakup, “We both knew you were going to blow it eventually.”

You can learn a lot by watching Two and a Half Men.  For the world is full of Charlie Harpers.  People that lie and manipulate people to get what they want.  Who depend on people being young and dumb.  This is how liberals have risen to power.  By selling their utopian world view to the young and ignorant.  Before they get old and wise.  And learn the truth of their liberal utopia.

There was an article in Rolling Stone saying what America needs is full-blown communism.  The author is a young guy.  An academic type.  Knows everything.  But has experienced nothing.  His head was filled with communist ideals from his leftist professors.

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…

But what John Lennon doesn’t sing about in Imagine is that every communist dictator that promised these things to the people made their people’s lives absolutely horrible.  Where people lived in fear of the secret police.  Were tortured at the hands of the secret police.  And died at the hands of the secret police.  Communism as an ideology has killed more people than any other dictator or ideology in all of history.  Yet college kids everywhere still imagine a world where all the people live as one.  Under the boot of an oppressive police state.  That forces the people to live in a brotherhood of man.  Or die.

Liberals are in a lot of ways like Charlie Harper because they like their Electorate Young and Dumb

Joseph Stalin terrorized his people with the KGB.  The East Germans shot their own people who tried to escape climbing over the Berlin Wall.  Cambodia’s Pol Pot killed a greater percentage of a nation’s population than any other dictator in history.  Cubans risk their lives to float from Cuba to the United States.  The masses in North Korea still suffer famine because of their oppressive Stalinist state.  Where it’s the military first.  Then the people.  And so on.  Yet college students still wear shirts with pictures of Che Guevara wearing his beret.  This hero of ignorant college students.  A guy who had urged the Soviets to launch their nuclear missiles at the United States during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

And when the secret police wasn’t killing their people the people were going without the most basic necessities.  For their planned economies could not keep their store shelves stocked.  So people went without many of the things people in Western capitalist economies take for granted.  Things even ignorant college students take for granted.  Things they just couldn’t get in their beloved communist utopias.  Ronald Reagan won the Cold War not by waging nuclear war.  He won it by creating an arms race that the Soviet economy could not keep up with AND feed her people.  Like the Americans could.  In fact, the American economic output was so great that they could feed all Americans with enough left over to export to the Soviet Union.  So the Soviet people did not die from famine.

All throughout history free market capitalism provided a better life than any planned economy.  Even in the United States.  When FDR increased government spending to end a recession it only stretched out that recession into the Great Depression.  Excessive government spending didn’t work in the 1970s for Nixon, Ford or Carter.  Nor did it work during the Great Recession for Obama.  But cuts in tax rates provided explosive economic growth for Warren Harding/Calvin Coolidge in the 1920s, JFK in the 1960s, Ronald Reagan in the 1980s and even George W. Bush in the 2000s.  Yet the young and dumb buy the liberal lie that government spending can provide a better life for all despite history proving otherwise.  And keep voting liberal.  Until they get old and wise, that is.  And start voting conservative.

Liberals are in a lot of ways like Charlie Harper.  For they like their electorate young and dumb.  So they can more easily lie to them.  To get what they want.  By making promises they never intend to keep.  Such as that brotherhood of man sharing all of the world.  For after a century or so of promising this the only people who ever enjoyed the liberal/communist utopia were those few in power.

After a Series of Central Planning Failures Senator Durbin says what the Economy Needs is more Central Planning

Posted by PITHOCRATES - October 30th, 2011

Week in Review

The great Margaret Thatcher was a limited-government conservative.  She brought the UK back from the abyss of socialist malaise.  Fixed the economy.  Gave the people a life of plenty.  And good times.  The last Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, visited Margaret Thatcher.  He was impressed.  The people in the UK weren’t hungry.  He asked her how she did it.  How was she able to feed her people?  For in the Soviet Union this was a never ending crisis.  Growing enough food on their collective farms to feed their people.

An odd question for Thatcher.  Or any other capitalist.  Because elected leaders of capitalistic countries don’t feed their people.  The free market economy does.  And it does it very well.  For the Soviets had the breadbasket of Europe within her borders.  The Ukraine.  And the UK was but a tiny island nation.  With barely a fraction of the farmland as the breadbasket of Europe.  Yet the British could feed her people.  And the Soviets could not.  Which just goes to show you that planned economies are all well and good if you want to control and oppress your people.  But they’re abject failures if you want to feed your people.  Still, there are those who still believe in the folly of central planning (see Durbin knocks GOP for not ‘designing the economy’ by Joel Gehrke posted 10/29/2011 on The Washington Examiner).

Despite the demonstrable failure of the bank bailouts, the 2009 stimulus, and the federal loan program that produced the Solyndra scandal, Democrats still believe that Congress should play a major role in shaping the economy — with the help of expert planners, of course.

Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., acknowledged as much while offering a misguided rebuke to congressional Republicans. “Simply standing back while trying to design the bumper sticker for the 2012 election instead of designing the economy to put Americans back to work,” Durbin said during an interview with the Chicago Tribune, “is not what the American people are looking for.”

The Democrats took both the House and the Senate in the 2006 midterm elections.  They held that power until the Republicans took back the House in the 2010 midterm elections.  They had 4 years of full legislative control.  And what designing of the economy did they do?  Just the destructive kind.

The housing bubble blew up on their watch.  And the fallout, the subprime mortgage crisis, happened on their watch.  The Great Recession happened on their watch.  The bank bailouts, the stimulus and the federal loan program that produced the Solyndra scandal happened on their watch.  And if that wasn’t enough destruction, they unleashed the job-killing, economy killing, private health care insurance killing Obamacare.  And they wonder why the economy isn’t doing any better.

No, Senator Durbin.  We don’t need any more of your expert planning.  Anymore and I’m afraid you guys will do some damage that not even a Margaret Thatcher can fix.
