The Democrat Party is the Cool Uncle that buys Booze and Cigarettes for his Nieces and Nephews
People characterize the Republicans as being a bunch of old fogies. Out of touch. Who don’t have a clue about the world today. Unlike their children
do. Who are wise beyond their years. For they know there is nothing really bad with underage drinking and smoking. Smoking marijuana. Or doing other drugs. And there is nothing wrong with casual sex. Sexting. Or nude selfies.
This is why the children of old fogies like the Democrat Party. Because the Democrats get them. Unlike their parents. Their parents tell them they shouldn’t stay out late, drink, smoke, do drugs or have sex. While the Democrats decriminalize marijuana and work to decriminalize other drugs. Provide free birth control. And abortion without parental notification. Making the Democrat Party the cool uncle that buys booze and cigarettes for his nieces and nephews. So is it any wonder that the youth vote goes Democrat?
The ironic thing, though, is that these old fogies were once young themselves. And some were pretty wild in their youth, too. But once they became parents things changed. For when it’s their daughter they don’t want her being objectified. Encouraged to explore her sexuality by having so much casual sex that she catches a sexually transmitted disease or gets pregnant. Especially if they did in their youth. Which is the last thing they want for their little girl. Who is and will forever remain their little girl.
Keynesian Economics conditioned People to accept that Government knows Best
This is the rule. Not the exception. As kids grow up fighting their parents they reach a point in life where they realize that their parents were right all along. That if they had only spent more time on their homework and less time partying things would have turned out better. Life may have been less fun in the short-run but much better in the long-run. They’d had an earlier start in their career. A career with better pay and benefits. They could have bought a house sooner. Met someone to marry and start a family with sooner. Instead of finding themselves at 25 buried under student loan debt for a degree that can’t get them a job. And a decade or so of hooking up having conditioned men to shun any serious commitment. Leading their daughters to turn to serial dating and online dating. As they struggle to find someone else who has grown up, too.
This is what the old fogies know. That their kids don’t. You get wiser with age. Thanks to education. And experience. Two things the young just don’t have. And never will. Because by the time they grow wise from education and experience they are no longer kids. But well on their way to ‘old fogery’. Which is, of course, a problem for the Democrat Party. For a wise voting public will not help them win elections. As their Keynesian economic policies have nothing but a long record of failure. Giving us the Great Depression, the stagflation of the 1970s, the dot-com recession and the Great Recession. To name a few bad economic times Keynesian economics have given us. Things older people know from education and experience. But the kids voting Democrat don’t.
Keynesian economics ushered in the era of Big Government. And did something the Socialists could not. Conditioned people to accept that government knows best. Especially young people. Uneducated and inexperienced young people. Despite the Democrats’ horrible record concerning things economic. Because of this record the Democrats use lies and deceit to attack free market capitalism. That economic system that worked better than any other. To get people who knew no better to mistrust free market capitalism. And ask for the government to fetter unfettered capitalism. To make the world a fairer place.
The Democrats use Public Education to teach our Kids to Distrust Capitalism and to Trust Government
It sounds good to the inexperienced and uneducated. Because it feels good to think in terms of fairness. And if there is one thing the young have are emotions. They like to use their hearts. Not their brains. As they are idealistic and naïve. Unlike those old fogies who are realists. They can’t be fooled or swayed by the Democrat lies because they have learned and experienced a lot in their long lives. And heard the same old Democrat lies all through those long lives. Which is why the Democrats work so hard on the youth vote. The War on Women, their lax drug attitudes, birth control, abortion, gay rights…all of these are to get the young to think in terms of fairness. To tug on their heartstrings. To get them emotional. And keep them emotional. As well as ignorant.
The more ignorant people are the easier it is to lie to them. Anyone who knows the history of Western Civilization will understand how life became better for people as we moved closer to free market capitalism. Anyone who knows classical economics will understand how thrift, savings, free trade, sound money, etc., made America the number one economy in the world. While the Keynesian policies of today are threatening to knock America out of that number one spot. People who understand these things are not going to vote Democrat. Which is why the Democrats work hard to keep people from learning these things. By constantly lying about them. And not teaching them in the institutions they control. Our public schools. And our institutions of higher education.
The Republican equation for winning votes is a difficult equation. Knowledge + Experience + Reason = Republican Votes. It’s difficult because the Democrats have long controlled public education. Thanks to their friends in the teacher unions. And their friends running our institutions of higher education. Which spend more time teaching our kids to distrust capitalism. And to trust government. To feel more. And think less. To live for today. And not worry about tomorrow. Making it very difficult for the Republicans to get young voters to vote for them. As they are unknowledgeable (thanks to our public schools), inexperienced (because they are young) and prefer emotion over reason (because feeling is more fun than thinking). Which is why old fogies (the knowledgeable, experienced and thinking) vote Republican and the youth vote does not.

Week in Review
If you’ve ever watched The Five you’ve probably heard Greg Gutfeld (libertarian/quasi conservative) blame all of our woes on liberal college professors. And heard Bob Beckel (liberal) say Greg Gutfeld is full of excrement. And that whenever they play a video of a leftist professor saying something anti-capitalist/socialist/communist Beckel (the one liberal in the group of five) yells that they only put on liberal extremists. Never a conservative extremist. Which he said there are just as many as liberal extremists teaching our kids in college.
Of course he’s full of excrement. Because conservatives aren’t in control of the curriculum. Liberals are. In the United States. And in the United Kingdom. And it’s because they control the curriculum that things like this happen (see ‘Refusal will result in a Racial Discrimination note being attached to your child’s educational record…’ by Daniel Hannan posted 11/22/2013 on The Telegraph).
As part of the National Religious Curriculum together with the multicultural community in which we live, it is a statutory requirement for Primary School aged children to experience and learn about different cultures.
The workshop is at Staffordshire University and will give your child the opportunity to explore other religions. Children will be looking at religious artifacts, similar to those that would be on display in a museum. They will not be partaking in any religious practices.
Refusal to allow your child to attend this trip will result in a Racial Discrimination note being attached to your child’s education record, which will remain on this file throughout their school career.
England has an official religion. The Church of England. Which is Protestant. That is, Christian. And it has a long history of being Christian. Which makes this school action rather remarkable. For it basically is telling British children to forget their culture and tradition. And observe the greatness of people who are not British.
When an American high school choir wants to sing a Christmas carol referencing Jesus of Nazareth, who the Christmas holiday celebrates, the school authorities shut it down. But they make a trip to expose students to other religions mandatory. Why? Because liberals hate Christianity. And love anything that disparages Christianity. Which is why they will brand any student who doesn’t attend a field trip that enshrines other religions (while banning high school choirs from singing Christmas carols referencing Jesus of Nazareth) as a racist. Even though religion transcends race.
Liberals will say a cross submerged in urine is art. But children not learning the glory of Islam and other non-Christian religions is showing an extreme lack of respect to those religions. And is worthy of branding those children as racist. Even though religion transcends race.
Bob Beckel is a Christian. And is a vocal opponent of the anti-Christian acts of militant Islam. Even condemning the whole Islamic faith as no one in that faith condemns these heinous acts. Yet he fails to see the anti-Christian element in our public schools and universities. Or refuses to see it. For although Beckel is a Christian liberals in general don’t like Christian morals that frown upon premarital sex and abortion. Things liberals are all for. As are our public schools and universities. As is evidenced by their handing out of free birth control. And providing access to abortion services. Even without parental consent wherever they can. And this while one of those religions they want to expose our kids to, Islam, won’t let their women out of the house unless they’re covered from head to toe and in the company of a male family member. There’s no premarital sex or abortion for them. But this is a religion we must show tolerance to. While showing no tolerance to Jesus of Nazareth during the holiday celebrating His birth. Is that because conservatives are in control of the school curriculum? No. It’s because liberals are. So Gutfeld is right. And Beckel is wrong.

Our Universities praise Government Intervention, Vilify Capitalism and Denigrate US History
I recently saw some students on television from our most prestigious universities. I won’t say who or where they were because it doesn’t matter. For they all pretty much think the same. There were liberal Democrats. And conservative Republicans. Young people. Just into their twenties. They spoke of economics, health care, free markets, investing in education, etc. Kids too young to have experienced life. In fact, most were still on their parent’s health insurance policies. But they knew everything there was to know. Particularly the liberal Democrats.
In college kids don’t know anything. That’s why they are there. So someone can tell them all those things they don’t know. The problem is this. The people telling them what to think have a liberal bias. It’s no secret. The teachers’ unions demand pay and benefit packages well beyond what most people can get in the private sector. The government let’s them gouge taxpayers. And in return they teach our kids in public schools to become Democrat voters. Then it’s on to college. Where the anti-capitalist hippies of the Sixties went on to become college professors. Who talked about the fairness in the former Soviet Union and the former East Germany. Where they put people before profits. Admiring their love of people. And hatred of profits. While glossing over on their oppressive police states, thought crimes, prisons for political dissidents, torture and wholesale executions.
These radical hippies took over higher education. And wrote the curriculum. Which praised government intervention into the free market economy. Vilified capitalism. And denigrated the United State’s role in history. Programming our children to hate whatever they hate. And to love what they love. Even when the facts get in the way. Which they can fix with a little history revisionism.
The Arts did Very Well during the Eighty thanks to the Generosity of Gainfully Employed People
They call the Eighties the decade of greed. While at the same time calling President Reagan’s economic policies a failure. Supply-side economics. Of the Austrian school. Everyone did well. Everyone made money. Which is why they were so materialistic. Because they had good-paying jobs that allowed them to be materialistic. Allowing them to buy Sony Walkmans and CD players. Which everyone had to have. Even though no one knew what they were before they hit the stores. Proving Say’s law.
Say’s law is a part of supply-side economics. In general it states that supply creates its own demand. No one was clamoring for Sony Walkmans or CD players in the Eighties. But when these companies explained how great they were all of a sudden we were demanding them. Supply created demand. Just as PC supply created PC demand. PCs were on the market long before they were in everyone’s home. It was a tough sell in the beginning. Because no one knew what they would use them for. But they have them now. Just like the Internet. For a generation who had just mastered the recording functions on their VCRs (video cassette recorders—what we used to record TV programs on before DVRs) the Internet was a confusing thing. And many said “thank you, but no thanks.” Then people began creating content and putting it on the World Wide Web. Today, people can’t live without their Internet connection. Again, supply created demand.
This is Say’s law in action. Supply creates demand. You make it easier for people to be creative and bring things to market and they will. Two ways to do this is to lower tax rates and reduce the regulatory climate. So people are more willing to take risks. Which they will do if there is sufficient reward for taking that risk. Reagan did both during the Eighties. The economy exploded. Everybody was working. The jobs were so good that we had money for material comforts. And generous donations. The arts did very well during the Eighties thanks to the generosity of gainfully employed people.
Obamacare will take Money from the Young and Healthy to pay for the Old and Sick
But this isn’t what they’re teaching in our universities. They say that Reagan did cut taxes and created an economic boom. But at what cost? For he had record deficits. Because of those tax cuts. Which is where that history revisionism comes in. Yes, he cut tax rates. And when he did tax receipts (actual money flowing into the treasury) nearly doubled. But our universities don’t teach that. As demonstrated whenever a liberal talks about Reaganomics. Instead they attack Reagan. Capitalism. And Republicans in general. Because they all believe that limited government is best. Which threatens a ruling class.
Our universities teach our kids the economics school that benefits the ruling class. By supporting an ever expanding government. Keynesian economics. Which has a proven track record of failure whenever we’ve tried it. John Maynard Keynes himself advised FDR during the Great Depression. FDR didn’t think much of Keynes. But he liked his idea about government spending during times of recession. Even though it only delayed the correction—and prolonged the recession—by interfering with market forces trying to correct market prices. Giving us the Great Depression. Keynesian economics also gave us the stagflation of the Seventies. Japan’s Lost Decade in the Nineties. The American dot-com bubble and recession in the Nineties/early 2000s. The 2008 subprime mortgage crisis. And the ongoing European sovereign debt crisis. All of these crises have their roots in Keynesian economics. The school of economics of the ruling class. But what do they teach in college? Free market capitalism is bad. And Keynesian economics is gospel.
These twenty somethings were anxious to show how smart they were. How in a mere 2-4 years of college they had learned everything there was to learn. And could regurgitate the party line. Rolling their eyes at the idiots around them. Laughing with all-knowing condescension. Praising President Obama. Obamacare. Believing that it will provide more for less. When nothing in the world works that way. More costs more. Yet they naïvely bleat what they were taught. These kids who haven’t opened up a letter from their private health insurer advising them that their premiums will rise by 50%, 75%, 100%, or more, to comply with Obamacare. Because it costs more to have more. And people now have to pay more even if they don’t want more. In particular young people. For Obamacare is a transfer program. Where Obamacare will take money from the young and healthy (like these college students once they graduate) to pay for the old and sick.
These kids, of course, blame the Republicans for the government shutdown. And that their concern for our deficits is silly. For they believe we don’t have a deficit problem. Yet the smaller Reagan deficits were the end of the world as we knew it. And they don’t have a problem with members of Congress and their staff getting subsidies to pay for their Obamacare. As paying for their Cadillac health care plans with their six-figure salaries would have been too much of a burden for them. And beneath them. So we should pity them while record numbers of Americans have disappeared from the labor force. Especially during the government shutdown. Where the grooms of the stool may not be there for them. Forcing the ruling class to wipe their own bottoms after they go potty.
This is what government and the political left is turning into. A ruling class. The very thing we fought our independence from. And they are getting away with this because they control education. And because they do they can revise history. And change their failures to successes. And change conservative successes to failures. All you need are fresh young minds to corrupt. And corrupt they do. These kids talk like they know everything. But they know nothing. Which is sad. For the children are our future. God help us.

Che Guevara is the Left’s Favorite Marxist Hero
When you have nonsensical policies it can be difficult to advance them. When you have policies that haven’t worked whenever they’ve been tried it can be difficult to advance them. When you have policies that informed people reject it can be difficult to advance them. When you have policies that will fundamentally change the country while taking the federal government closer to a monarchy it can be difficult to advance them. Unless the masses are uninformed. Or scared.
Fear. It’s a good tool to advance bad policy. Especially with an uninformed people. When the antiestablishment hippies of the Sixties got tired of turning on, tuning in, dropping out and trying to overthrow the federal government through domestic terrorism (as groups like the Weather Underground tried) they changed tack. These old hippies gave up their violent revolutionary ways. Kept doing their drugs. And started overthrowing the country from the inside. By entering education.
If you’ve ever wondered how the nation started its turn left this is it. These hippies began teaching our kids. Filling their heads with revisionist history. Attacking capitalism. Lauding socialism. And communism. These people were, after all, the ones who started putting up posters of Che Guevara. The guy who when in Cuba wanted the Soviets to nuke the United States. A part of the Cuban Missile Crisis they don’t teach in our public schools. For Che Guevara is the Left’s favorite Marxist hero. Which is why today you see young and impressionable college students with posters of Che Guevara in their dorm rooms. Or wearing t-shirts with his image.
Volcanic Eruptions Cool the Planet while burning Coal Warms the Planet
These old hippies hate capitalism. So they teach our kids the evils of capitalism. And the goodness of the federal government. The very government they once tried to overthrow. Now that federal government can only do good. As long as liberal Democrats like them are in power. And they use the federal government to go after their sworn enemy. Capitalism. Which is why our kids come home from school scared to death about global warming. And grow up to be good liberals who hate capitalism. Because capitalists cause global warming. By putting profits before people. And before the planet.
On February 15, 2013, a large meteoroid exploded in the sky over Russia. Causing a lot of damage. Shattered a lot of windows. Set off a lot of car alarms. And injured some 1200 people. But it didn’t kill anyone. Because it exploded some 20-30 miles above the ground. Which was lucky for the people below. For the energy in this 10 metric ton meteoroid was equivalent to a small nuclear bomb. Had it landed intact in Moscow it may have destroyed that city. Events like this are rare. But a lot of meteoroids enter the earth’s atmosphere. Most burn up. But some pieces make it through to crash into the earth.
A large meteoroid impact may have caused the extinction of the dinosaurs. But so far human civilization has escaped. But it’s just been dumb luck. For there is a lot of space junk up there hurling its way all over the universe. Making a large meteoroid strike sometime in the future a very real possibility. Meteoroids that can take out cities like a nuclear bomb. Yet they don’t teach our kids this in school. The Left isn’t pressing for some space-based defense force that could land on a meteoroid to attach rockets to try and steer it away from the earth. Or even to detonate a nuclear device to try and push it off course. No. We hear nothing about this danger. Yet they scare our kids about man-made global warming. Teach them to hate coal. Even though burning coal puts the same stuff into the atmosphere as an erupting volcano. But volcanic eruptions cool the planet. While burning coal warms the planet.
Fear is Good, Fear is Right, Fear works
So the whole global warming debate appears to be more politics than science. But our impressionable kids hear this stuff and accept it as fact. While they ignore a real threat. Meteoroids. So why do they scare our kids about global warming but not about a meteoroid crashing into the planet? Because peddling fear about meteoroids doesn’t offer any political capital. Not like putting the fear of God into our kids that global warming is killing the planet. And forcing the polar bears to swim miles from shore because the Arctic is melting. This fear offers political capital they can use to further regulate businesses. And to attack capitalism. Because only government can help the polar bears by preventing businesses from destroying the planet with all of their man-made global warming.
To the Left fear is good. Fear is right. Fear works. Which is why they always turn to it whenever they are trying to pass bad policies that an informed people reject. As we see in the sequester debate. A modest decrease in the rate by which they will increase spending. The federal government will spend more this year than they did last year. Even with the sequester cuts. But they put the fear of God into the uninformed that these ‘cuts’ will unleash Armageddon. We’ll have no safe food to eat or clean water to drink. Cops, firefighters and teachers will lose their jobs en masse. Criminals will run free as prosecutors won’t be able to afford to bring them to justice. We’ll vacate our border because we won’t be able to pay our border patrol. People will suffer great delays at our airports because they will lay-off TSA agents and air traffic controllers. And we’ll have to release people from prison because we won’t be able to afford to incarcerate them anymore.
None of its true. But it sure sounds scary. Like it will be the end of the world. And to stop this all we have to do is raise taxes. Hmmm. Raise taxes? Or die in the fiery pits of Hell? Which one do you think the uninformed will choose? Our young adults graduating from high school. Those getting a liberal college education. Those who get their news from The Daily Show. Who are more interested in sex and drugs. Based on the 2012 election. Where they warned women that if they wanted continued access to birth control and abortion they had better vote Democrat. And, of course, Washington and Colorado decriminalized marijuana. So what are these people going to believe? Whatever the people who put the fear of God into them about man-made global warming want them to believe. And they will. Because fear is good. Fear is right. Fear works.

Far Fewer People pay to read Papers Online than they once Paid to read them in Print
The Washington Post has a market capitalization of $4.2 billion. Which is the number of issued shares of publically traded stock multiplied by its stock price. In other words, this is what the shareholders of The Washington Post believe the paper is worth. Yet on Monday they sold the paper for $250 million. Which is 94% less that its market capitalization.
This follows the sale of The Boston Globe. Which The New York Times sold for $70 million. After buying it for $1.1 billion in 1993. Coincidentally, a loss of 94%. The Washington Post and The Boston Globe show how newspapers have lost their value. Each paper suffered huge declines in circulation. And with fewer people reading these newspapers advertisers placed their ads elsewhere. Which led to tens of millions in annual losses. Common in much of the established print media. Why?
In part because of the Internet. People like getting their news online. Free. Some papers have installed pay-walls for their online content. Some more successful than others. But far fewer people pay to read these papers online like they once paid to read them in print. On paper. Old-school style. Yes, online content is instantaneous. Up to date. Free (much of it). And you don’t get that black ink on your fingers when reading the paper. But is there something else causing papers like The Boston Globe and The Washington Post to fail so miserably? Perhaps.
Approximately 75% of all Americans do NOT call themselves Liberal
The problems these papers are having are caused bytheir liberal bias. This is why so many people are refusing to pay to pass the pay-wall. And why they aren’t buying the print version. Because today there is choice. A lot of choice. And a lot of choice that doesn’t insult them on a daily basis.
The (once) leading newspapers, the television news networks, the public schools, our colleges and universities, Hollywood, television and the music industry (apart from country music) leans left. People are bombarded with a liberal agenda from school to television to the movies to their music. Making the liberal agenda appear to be the mainstream thought. But it’s not.
According to Gallup the ideological breakdown of the country in 2011 (and 2010, 2009, 2004, 2001, 2000, 1999, 1988, 1997 and 1996) was approximately 40% conservative. While 35% identified themselves as moderate in 2011. And those calling themselves liberal came to 21% in 2011. So nearly half of all Americans call themselves conservative. While 75% of all Americans do NOT call themselves liberal. So is it a surprise that newspapers with a liberal slant that insult approximately 75% of the population are failing?
The Boston Globe and The Washington Post are Failing because People don’t like Elitists talking down to Them
The American people don’t like the liberal agenda. Even liberals don’t like the liberal agenda when it affects their lives. Matt Damon is a diehard liberal. And champion of our public schools. Loving their liberal agenda. But when it comes to his own kids, surprise, surprise, they go to a private school. Just like President Obama’s daughters. The president is such a fierce supporter of our public schools that he ended the school voucher system in Washington DC. Keeping those kids in the public school system. Because he took away their choice. While exercising his choice with his own daughters. As the president believes that private schools are better than public education. And he wants to keep the poor people out of them. Which is what cancelling the school voucher system did.
And just recently we’ve seen Congress and their staff get an exemption from Obamacare. The same Obamacare they’re forcing on the masses. But those working in Congress have the best health insurance plans known to mankind. And they’re expensive. So much so that the government (i.e., the taxpayers) pays 75% of their premium costs. They liked their plans. They wanted to keep their plans. But an unattended consequence of Obamacare put them in the same boat as the rest of us when it came to their health insurance. And it was just a gosh-darn shame that these people would have to pay an enormous amount of money for their gold-plated-Cadillac plans. So the executive branch of the federal government will pay (i.e., the taxpayers will pay) their 75% subsidy so they can keep the plans they like. Without seeing their premiums going up. Unlike the rest of us.
This is why papers like The Boston Globe and The Washington Post are failing. Because people don’t like elitists talking down to them. Telling us that we don’t know what’s best for us. Or that we are simply too stupid to know that things we don’t like are actually good for us. Like our public schools. And Obamacare. While the very people telling us this are exempting themselves from these very things.

Week in Review
The left keeps saying we need to have a dialog on race. Which means do nothing, excuse bad behavior and spend more money. That’s their idea of dialog. Because for them there’s nothing to talk about. For when it comes to racial issues they have two simple rules. Rule #1: Whites are to blame. Rule #2: When blacks are to blame see Rule #1. Why? To curry favor in the black community. To get them to vote for them. And that’s all they care about. Even if they worsen the condition in the black community in the process. Because they don’t care about the plight of black people. They just want their votes.
In today’s society you cannot criticize blacks behaving badly without the left calling you a racist. Even if you don’t mention race. If you say ‘Joe is behaving badly’ and Joe is black then your comment ‘Joe is behaving badly’ reeks of racism. Because of this people are reluctant to criticize blacks behaving badly. Because it will bring the wrath of the left down upon you. Stirring up trouble for you where you work and where you live. Which is the last thing most people want. So they don’t criticize blacks behaving badly. Which only encourages some blacks to behave badly (see A brave Baltimore teacher speaks the truth about schools, students by GREGORY KANE posted 8/1/2013 on the Washington Examiner).
Dave Miceli doesn’t know me from a hole in the ground, but he’s my new hero.
Anyone that can dredge up the guts to teach in Baltimore’s public schools automatically becomes a candidate for hero status in my book, especially if said anyone has taught in these schools for 20 years, as Miceli has.
But it was his bold, insightful, no-punches-pulled letter to the editors of the July 15 edition of the Baltimore Sun that put Miceli on my hero’s list…
“I have taught in the Baltimore public school system for the past two decades. What we need is better students. We have many excellent teachers. I cannot count the number of students who have physically destroyed property in the schools.
“They have trashed brand new computers, destroyed exit signs, set multiple fires, destroyed many, many lockers, stolen teachers’ school supplies, written their filth on the tops of classroom desks, defecated in the bathrooms and stairwells, assaulted teachers (beyond constantly telling them to perform certain impossible acts upon themselves) and refused to do any homework or class work.
You can bet that Baltimore school honchos and some elected officials want Miceli fired so badly they can almost taste it. Oddly enough, what probably saves Miceli from being canned are two things that conservatives — rightly so, in most cases — feel are precisely what’s wrong with American education.
That would be teachers’ unions and tenure. With his two decades of teaching, Miceli has tenure. Members of the Baltimore Teachers Union — and its leaders — probably don’t know whether to love or lynch the guy.
So Miceli probably knew that he wouldn’t be fired for his letter, but he’s courageous for saying what he said in a city that’s majority black, with a school system that’s majority black, and where most of the elected officials are black Democrats.
A majority black city? A majority black school system? And a majority of black elected officials? So it’s safe to say that at least some of these students behaving badly are black. And if these predominantly black Democrat cities have a high black unemployment rate perhaps the conversation we should be having is why aren’t these students doing their homework? Why aren’t they doing their class work? For if they aren’t doing their school work how are they going to possess the skills an employer would expect of a high school graduate? And if they’re not doing their work in high school how are they going to be able to go on to college. Which is just a much harder high school?
Perhaps this is the reason for the high black unemployment rates in our big Democrat-controlled cities. Because the left sacrifices these kids for political reasons. So they can blame racist white Republicans for preventing these kids from doing their homework and their class work. For remember rule number 2. Which states, “When blacks are to blame see Rule #1.” Which states “Whites are to blame.” Even when it’s black teachers in a black school district in a black city run by black Democrats.
This is the dialog the left wants to have. So the right understand these two rules. So they, too, do nothing, excuse bad behavior and spend more money.

Liberals seem more Mainstream than they are because they hold Key Positions of Power
Liberals have one very unpleasant fact to deal with. Theirs is a minority viewpoint. According to Gallup (see Conservatives Remain the Largest Ideological Group in U.S. by Lydia Saad posted 1/12/2012 on Gallup), the American people identify themselves in 2010 as follows: conservative (40%), moderate (35%) and liberal (21%). And the above referenced Gallup poll shows that the American people haven’t trended far from these numbers since 1992.
So the liberal cause is an uphill battle to begin with. As 79% of the American people do not identify themselves with their views. Which are basically a bigger, activist government. More rules and regulations in our personal lives. More fun and less restraint. More casual sex and less traditional marriage. Keynesian economic policies where the government plays with interest rates, creating large asset bubbles (such as housing bubbles) which give us very long and painful recessions to undo the damage an activist Keynesian government makes. Like the subprime mortgage crisis. Anti-energy policies that increase the cost of energy so they can subsidize more costly green energy. Free birth control and access to abortion on demand. And Obamacare. To name a few.
Some may feel that liberalism is more mainstream than the poll numbers suggest. But that’s only because though their numbers are small they hold key positions of power. They control the public schools. And our colleges and universities. They control the mainstream media. And the entertainment industry. Giving liberals a very powerful bully pulpit. When late-night television ridicules conservatives millions of impressionable people see it. And see how cool it is to ridicule conservatives. Reinforcing everything they’ve learned in our public schools, colleges, universities, mainstream media and, of course, the entertainment industry. Yet despite all of this the best they can do is to get 21% of the people to think like them. To want what they want. And to do as they want them to do.
A Liberal Woman uses Birth Control and Abortion to keep her Fertility Rate Lower than a Conservative Woman’s
Why is this? Because of parents. Perhaps the greatest obstacle liberals have in transforming the country into the European social democracy they want. With them sitting atop the power structure. Much like the aristocracy of the Old World where they were free to tell people to do as they say, not as they do. For while forcing their highly regulated world upon us they will exempt themselves from the less pleasant things. Putting themselves above the laws they don’t like but feel are in our best interests. Which we would understand if only we were as smart as them.
And every time they turn around there is some parent trying to undo all of their work. For they only have our children for less than a third of a day, 5 days a week. Worse, they don’t even get our kids into their education camps, I mean, schools, until they’ve lived exclusively with their parents for 5 or 6 years. If you ever wondered why the Democrats are always pushing for state-funded childcare this is the reason. To get to our kids sooner. Before their parents can warp their minds with non-liberal viewpoints. Like not to fear the coming apocalypse of global warming. In fact some of these parents are such poor parents that they’ll load their kids into a gas-guzzling, carbon-polluting SUV and take them on a vacation. Letting a child enjoy being in a big, comfortable and safe vehicle out on the open road. Before liberals can teach them later that all of those things are bad. And wrong. But the real problem liberals have with parents like these is that there are just so many of them. Ironically, because of liberal policies that have altered fertility rates. Thanks to birth control and abortion. And their attacks on the traditional family.
Earlier we discussed replacement birthrates (see Aging Populations and Replacement Birthrate posted 7/8/2013 on Pithocrates). The current U.S. population is about 314 million. Using the Gallup numbers we calculated the number of liberals and conservatives in that 314 million and entered them into the beginning populations above. We assumed a generation lasting 20 years where couples will each bring in 1.5 babies if they’re liberals. Below the replacement birthrate. And 2.5 babies if they’re conservatives. Above the replacement birthrate. A conservative couple will have on average one more baby than a liberal couple. Because a conservative woman will live a closer life to the traditional family. While the liberal woman may pursue a career and not be interested in having children. Using birth control and abortion to keep her fertility rate lower than the conservative woman.
The Liberals’ Rise to Power was Slow and Steady via Incremental Change all but Unnoticeable to Each Generation
If we add the number of liberals and conservatives together (we’ll call it the L/C Universe) they total approximately 191 million people. Where liberals make up 34% of the L/C Universe. While conservatives make up 66% of the L/C Universe. As we move through 4 generations we see how the population increases. The liberal population grows 838%. While the conservative population grows 2,463%. Because of that extra baby per couple on average the conservative population grows over 5 times more than the liberal population. Dropping the liberals down to only 16% of the L/C Universe. While increasing the conservatives to 84% of the L/C Universe.
If you ever wondered why the Democrats are pushing so hard for immigration reform this is why. The liberal elite know their policies to encourage women to do anything BUT have babies threatens their long-term hold on power. That’s why they pander to blacks, women, the young, etc. They shower them with benefits and/or policies that make their lives a lot more fun. Such as free birth control. And accessible abortion. Things that really appeal to the young voter. Because that’s what they have on the mind most of the time. Casual and consequence-free sex. By treating pregnancy as a disease. To be prevented (birth control). Or cured (abortion). But in the wake of these policies is a dearth of new liberal voters. Which they hope to replace with immigration reform. Hoping that those they bring into the population vote Democrat. Grateful for their path to citizenship. To make up for all the babies that never were. Thanks to liberal attacks on the traditional family.
Unless the liberals can take our children away from us sooner and keep them longer (to countermand any conservative education their parents give them) their lower fertility rates will push liberalism to extinction. How ironic indeed that the very policies that liberals and conservatives bitterly fight over the most may lead to their fall from power. Birth control. And abortion. The greatest threats to liberalism. Their rise to power was slow and steady through incremental change. Almost unnoticeable to each generation. As will be their fall. Unless, of course, they use extralegal tactics to get around the will of the people. Such as ruling by executive order. And using the courts to make law the Congress won’t. But what are the odds of that ever happening?

Public Schools teach Kids that Republicans are Racist Homophobes who hate Children, Poor People and Immigrants
Americans are historically conservative. Gallup shows that approximately 40% +/- of the people call themselves conservative. While only approximately 20% +/- call themselves liberal. Most of the rest call themselves moderates. Gallup shows this as a general trend from 1992 through 2011 (see Conservatives Remain the Largest Ideological Group in U.S. by Lydia Saad posted 1/12/2012 on Gallup). Yet President Obama is a liberal pushing liberal policies. So how did a conservative nation vote in such a liberal president?
Well, there are the usual suspects. The public schools are teaching our children to be liberal. Thanks to teacher unions. Who contribute generously via their union dues to the Democrat Party in return for favorable policies from the Department of Education. So our public schools work to ‘free’ our children’s minds from the influence of their parents. The push for public-funded childcare is just a way to get our children away from their parents sooner. For the younger they start the longer their education/indoctrination will last.
While our kids are in our public schools they learn the ‘important’ things. Global warming is a reason to tax and regulate business. Capitalism is unfair and evil. Government is good. While glossing over the Founding Fathers and their creation of a government based on the assumption that government is bad. And the less of it the better the people were. No. Our kids don’t learn that. Instead they learn worthless things and come out of our schools knowing very little about their country. Or their government. Just watch Watters’ World on The Factor. And listen to how little our young people know when Jesse Watters asks some basic questions. You’ll get the ‘deer in the headlights’ look when asked a question school children could have answered a generation or two earlier. But despite their lack of knowledge on anything that isn’t trending in social media they will tell you that Fox News is biased. And that Republicans are racist homophobes who hate children, poor people and immigrants. Which is why they vote Democrat.
Democrats expand the Welfare State to get People Dependent on Government Benefits
So there’s public education. And for those who go on to college our public universities will pull these kids even further left. Then there’s the mainstream media. Which is liberal. Reinforcing everything our kids heard in school. And all the people they look up to in the entertainment world tend to be liberal. Further reinforcing what these young people heard in school. Even though only 20% call themselves liberal that 20% is a young person’s world. So a liberal view does not seem like the minority view it is to them. Which is why they vote Democrat.
Then there are public sector unions. And labor unions. Who have a vested interest in keeping Democrats in office. These unions collect dues from their members. And spend a large portion of those dues to help Democrats win elections. In return these Democrats implement union-favorable policies. Also, these union members will act as foot soldiers during elections. Helping to get out the vote. Making phone calls. Going door to door. And helping to get people to the polls to vote Democrat.
Democrats also try to expand the welfare state. To get people dependent on the government. So these people look to government as their sole provider. And after awhile being dependent on the government these people become completely dependent on the government. And fear losing their government benefits. For after being out of work for so long the thought of reentering the workforce is frightening. Which Democrats tell them Republicans want to do. They want to take away their benefits. And force them into hamburger-flipper jobs. Which Democrats point out are beneath them. Even if they have no education or jobs skills beyond entry level employment. So they vote Democrat. To protect their benefits.
Liberals win Elections by Indoctrination, Quid Pro Quo, Dependency, Fear, Patronage and Abuse of Power
But it doesn’t end with simply getting people dependent on government benefits. They implement policies that attack and destroy conservative institutions that encourage people to stand on their own two feet. So they just don’t have to rely on people’s desires and wants. But can tap into their fears. Which is why FDR passed Social Security into Law. And why LBJ expanded Medicare. For these two great liberals knew they could make the elderly permanent Democrat voters by putting the fear of God in them that Republicans will cut their Social Security and Medicare benefits. So a large percentage of seniors vote Democrat. As they won’t be able to pay their bills or see a doctor if they lose their Social Security and Medicare benefits. Because they trusted the government to provide for them in retirement.
And then there’s Obamacare. Which will do to all non-seniors what Social Security and Medicare did to seniors. Put the fear of God into them that Republicans will kill them by cutting their Obamacare benefits. But it’s more than just the fear. Obamacare will require a massive bureaucracy. Layers of new government jobs. Public sector union jobs. Which will do what public sector unions and labor unions do on a grand scale. But the big way Obamacare can help Democrats win elections is having the IRS enforce it. Having the IRS determining who is eligible for a subsidy. Determining how much someone can afford to pay for their Obamacare. And determining how much to fine someone. Allowing the IRS to ‘Tea Party’ the political opposition.
This is how liberals win elections. Not by winning in the arena of ideas. But by indoctrination, quid pro quo, dependency, fear, patronage and using the power of the executive branch for political ends. They’ve become everything the Founding Fathers feared. Who wrote the Constitution specifically to prevent things like this from happening. Who didn’t believe the Constitution was a living document for future generations to interpret and adjust for the times. Because they didn’t write it to give people stuff. They wrote it to restrict the powers of the federal government as much as possible. Because it is government’s nature to oppress and abuse her people. So you don’t want them to have a lot of power. For Lord Acton’s words are just as true today. Power corrupts. And absolute power corrupts absolutely. Something at least 40% of the American people understand.

The Entrepreneurial Spirit gave America the Economic Prowess to spend the Soviet Union into the Ash Heap of History
Immigrants used to come to the United States with great enthusiasm. They were excited that they were going to be an American. They wanted to assimilate. They learned their American history. Better than most people born in the United States. When they took the oath of citizenship a euphoric joy filled them. For having fulfilled their greatest dream. If they heard their family members speak the language of their birth country they rebuked them sternly. And told them, “We’re American now. Speak English.”
Yes, there was great pride in becoming an American. As immigrants saw America as Ronald Reagan saw it. A shining city upon a hill. Whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere. People in the Old World yearned for the freedom of the New World. Religious freedom. Freedom from an oppressive government. Economic freedom. Where everyone had the same chance to be whatever they wanted to be no matter who their parents were. For in America there was no privilege. Just hard work. And the ability to keep the fruit of all your labors. This is the American dream. This is why they came to this shining city upon a hill.
Immigrants wanted to assimilate. They wanted to think of themselves as Americans. For it meant something. Something special. It meant you were a citizen of the greatest country in the world. For individual liberty unleashed great prosperity. An entrepreneurial spirit. American ingenuity. Making America the leader in new technology. Making work less tedious. And life more enjoyable. Giving America the highest standard of living. Great food surpluses that let America feed the world. And the military power to defeat Nazism and stand up to communism. And the economic prowess to spend the Soviet Union into the ash heap of history.
Our Public Schools teach our Children that we Stole the Land from the Native Americans and got Rich on Slave Labor
People came to America to be Americans. They remembered their culture. But their culture did not identify who they were. They were Americans. Not hyphenated Americans. As Theodore Roosevelt said, “In this country we have no place for hyphenated Americans.” We were not Italian-Americans. We were not Polish-Americans. We were not Irish-Americans. We were not German-Americans. We were Americans.
Our public schools once taught our children about the Founding. The abuses of European monarchies. Unjust taxation. And the perverse powers of privilege. Things the Founding Fathers found abhorrent. The Founding Fathers knew the history of Greece and Rome. King John and Magna Carta. And the English Civil War was not that distant from their time. They were students of the Enlightenment. They read Adam Smith. Believed in laissez-faire economics. And championed limited government. When they formed a new country they drew from this vast pool of knowledge. And made the greatest country in the world. One with religious freedom but based on Judeo-Christian values. A country so great that rulers of other nations wanted to hinder its ascension to further greatness. While the people living under those rulers wanted to be Americans.
This experiment in self-government had some growing pains. We were not perfect. But we were far more perfect than any other government out there. But our public schools don’t teach that today. Instead, they teach our children that the Founders stole the land from the Native Americans. That we stole our southern land and California from the Mexicans. Who gained their independence from Spain who colonized these lands. Land they had stolen from the native people who were living on it at the time. (Interestingly, when the Mexicans gained their independence from a European power the land belonged to the Mexicans. But when the Americans gained their independence from a European power the land belonged to someone else.) That we stole Cuba and the Philippines from the Spanish. Who stole it from the people living on these lands when they arrived and stole it. Yet it is the Americans who were an imperialist power stealing land. Never the Mexicans or the Spanish. And, of course, that America grew rich and powerful thanks to free slave labor. Despite that very same economic system causing the South to lose the American Civil War.
The American Educational System failed to make Dzhokhar Tsarnaev NOT burn with a Seething Hatred of America
Then the attacks on capitalism came. The system that made America great. All of a sudden it was unfair. It was unjust. And it exploited the poor to help the rich get richer. A better system was socialism. For it was fair. It was just. Because it put people before profits. (Just ask those who lived in the Soviet Union, the People’s Republic of China under Mao, North Korea, Cuba and the people who lived behind the Iron Curtain in Eastern Europe how wonderful it was to live where they put people before profits. Here’s a hint. A lot of these people were shot while trying to escape their social utopia). Unlike the most evil thing in the world. The corporation. Who underpaid their workers. Raped the land of its natural resources. And polluted the environment. So not only were they evil for pursuing profits they were evil for exploiting both people and the planet. So we needed more government to regulate capitalism. And those evil corporations. So our children learned the evils of capitalism and the goodness of government in our public schools and universities. Where their teachers and professors taught them all of the badness of the United States. While glossing over all of its goodness. Imbuing some shame into our students for being American. Even making some burn with a seething hatred of the United States.
And so began the diversity movement. And multiculturalism. If America was so shameful we should not celebrate what unified us as Americans. But we should celebrate our differences. We no longer celebrated the things people immigrated to the United States for. But the things they fled in the countries they emigrated from. We are no longer Americans. We are now hyphenated Americans. And it was the thing preceding the hyphen that made us great now. Not being American. Because America had a shameful past. And had a long way to go to atone for her sins. Making a lot of hatred of America now home-grown. Especially in the American universities. Where radicals from the Sixties who wanted to overthrow capitalism and replace it with socialism now write the curriculum. And these radical professors disparaged judgmental Christianity every chance they could. For they liked the sex and drugs of their Me generation. Mocking the Judeo-Christian values that made America great. Something those who were not Christians ate up.
So the American university system is a hotbed of anti-American sentiment. Perhaps explaining why some of the greatest terrorist attacks on American soil were perpetrated by people educated in the United States. Such as Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Architect and mastermind of a series of terrorist attacks. Including the attacks on 9/11. Who attended college in North Carolina. Earning a degree in mechanical engineering. And Anwar al-Awlaki. Who earned a degree in civil engineering from Colorado State University. He also studied education leadership at San Diego State University. And worked on a doctorate at George Washington University. Then moved to Yemen and became the Osama bin Laden of the Internet. And then we have the Boston Marathon bombers. Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Who immigrated to the United States about a decade ago. With Dzhokhar being so young he probably has no memories of his native Chechnya. A hotbed of radical Islamist terrorism. Locked in a bitter war with Christian Russia. Where barbarous acts in that conflict have rivaled the atrocities of the Eastern Front in World War II. Yet he burned with such a seething hatred of an America founded on Judeo-Christian values that he could place a bomb next to an 8 year old child. A seething hatred he learned from someone while living in America. Either directly from the American educational system. Or indirectly as that educational system failed to make him NOT burn with a seething hatred of America.

Our Public Schools teach our Children that Capitalism is Bad and Government is Good
The Democrats want some form of national childcare. President Obama just said that he wanted 4 year olds in preschool. Some political operative just made a video saying that we need to destroy the notion that children belong to their parents. And get people thinking more collectively about their children. That they belong to the community. Not to their parents. So why this push to take children away from their parents and place them into institutions more controlled by the state? For one reason. To make them think ‘correctly’.
Our public schools teach our children at an early age about global warming. Why? There’s nothing children can do about it. And it’s likely not man-made. For the glaciers moved their farthest before man ever put warming emissions into the atmosphere. So why scare them of an impending global warming apocalypse? Filling their heads with things to give them nightmares? Because it is useful to make them fear global warming. Useful how? Well, who is it that is supposedly causing global warming? Businesses. Corporations. In general, capitalism. In particular, unfettered capitalism. Which teaches children what? That if left to its own devises unfettered capitalism will destroy the world. So we need government to act like cops. To protect these children, their families and the world from these evil and greedy corporations that are trying to kill people with global warming. Just so they can make a buck.
This is what they’re teaching our children in the public schools. That unfettered capitalism is unfair. Cruel. And will kill us to make a buck. So our children learn the evils of the profit incentive. And the goodness of government. They teach our children how FDR, LBJ and President Obama made the country better. By preventing the evil corporations from running wild in pursuit of profits. They don’t teach them how America became the world’s number one economy with the greatest liberty and highest standard of liberty because of unfettered capitalism. Or why this was the reason people immigrated to the United States. No. Instead they teach them to fear corporations. And support unions. Because unions like government stop the evil corporations from hurting people to make a buck. They’ll even hold picket signs for their teachers when they go on strike. Teachers repeat this lesson over and over again. Corporations bad. Capitalism bad. Unions good. Government good. So when they start voting they will vote ‘correctly’.
Someone has to Teach People to have Negative Views of Republicans because they’re not Born with Them
So this is why the Democrats want to take children away from their parents. So they can start teaching them how to think ‘correctly’. So they will vote ‘correctly’. And when our kids get to college they take it up a notch. Back in the Sixties radicals protested at college campuses. Protested the Vietnam War. Wearing shirts with pictures of communist icons like Chairman Mao and Chez Guevara. They wanted to establish communism in the United States. They hated the profit-incentive. And corporate America. They wanted to abolish private property. Make everything communal. They even lived in communes. Just like the communists they so admired. Even though the communist utopias in the Soviet Union and The People’s Republic of China oppressed and killed their people if they didn’t think ‘correctly’.
They wanted a world where everyone had whatever they needed without having to work for the man. So they could spend their days the way they believed people should pass their days. Getting high, engaging in free love and singing songs about love. These radicals then changed their tactics. Instead of fighting the system from the outside they began fighting it from the inside. By becoming college professors. Now they are teaching our kids. And writing the curriculum. Even those who went to jail for acts of domestic terrorism are joining the faculty at our colleges. And those who avoided jail on a technicality. Liberal Democrats revere these people. And the students they’re programming to become good liberal Democrats love them. For they, too, want to enjoy a life full of drugs and sex. They see these radical professors as enlightened. For they find nothing wrong with enjoying the moment. Instead of sacrificing for the future. Like their parents did. Who always frowned on their having a good time. Most colleges today lean left. And the radical Left keeps out the riff raff. Conservatives. Who are just too much like these students’ parents. And bestows tenure on those who think as radically as they do. While denying it to those who don’t. Those conservatives.
Conservative students have recorded some of these classes. Where we can hear liberal professors telling their captive audience that Republicans are all racist white men. And are the most inflexible in their thinking. Stubborn. And mean spirited. That they hate minorities, the poor and women. Even want to prevent them from voting. They want to put blacks back at the back of the bus. And women back into the Fifties where they’re barefoot and pregnant. Are these isolated incidents? Or is this what they teach all of our children? Well, if you watch the Daily Show, Saturday Night Live, most any television sitcom, most any Hollywood movie or watch the network news you have to believe this teaching is pervasive. As no one is born with political views someone had to teach these people to have these negative views of Republicans. And who teaches our kids? Our public schools. And our colleges.
Liberal Democrats don’t Engage in Debate but Instead Lie and Launch Personal Attacks
The liberal viewpoint is a minority viewpoint. Only about 21% of the people identify themselves as liberal. While 35% identify themselves as moderate. And 40% identify themselves as conservative (see Conservatives Remain the Largest Ideological Group in U.S. on Gallup). So those wishing to implement a liberal agenda have their work cut out for them. Because about 75% of the people don’t think like they do. That is, not yet.
This is why the president wants to get 4 year olds into state-paid childcare. And why liberals want to take our children away so the state can raise them. So the liberals can get them while they’re young. And diminish the influence of their parents. Especially when those parents are conservatives. Who resist the liberal indoctrination of their children. And undo some of the hard work they’ve done in getting these children to think ‘correctly’. Which is a big problem for liberal Democrats. Because they can’t win on the merits of their policies. Not when 75% of the people don’t think like they do.
So liberal Democrats teach our kids to fear and hate those who don’t think like they do. And they mock, belittle, disparage, demean, deride, etc., these people who don’t think like they do. They don’t engage in debate. They lie. And launch personal attacks. Which our high school and college kids find so entertaining. They fill the audience at the Daily Show and the Late Show with David Lettermen. They may not understand the issues. But they know that they should laugh. And how they should vote. For they know that corporations are bad. Capitalism is bad. While unions are good. And government is good. The cool people they admire so much are liberal Democrats. So they, too, are liberal Democrats. And until they learn from age and experience to vote like adults they will continue to vote as self-indulgent children. Living to maximize the pleasure of the moment. No matter the long-term consequence of their actions.
