Thought for the Day

I have a message for the Democratic Party and their intellectual partisans, you know, the folks who are visibly upset at the fact that we won't blindly submit to their whims.

Get over it.

Sure, you claimed to won the presidential election by a majority of the votes cast. (After all, your candidate IS an Illinois Democrat)

So what?

An election in a constitutional republic is a process of hiring someone to perform a constitutionally defined task. It is not a mystical collectivist ritual for the anointment of a stone age god-king.

We do not believe in The Leader Principle. We do not believe that the stone age god-king that you call The One is in any way the embodiment of a collective will. And we certainly do not believe that we are in any way subject to what are in fact his individual whims.

We are not and never will be a living prop in your ideological fantasies. We will not bind ourselves with the chains that you offer us. And we will never embark on the path that ultimately leads to the anonymous ditch outside of town.

This isn't Russia in 1917. We know about the ultimate results of your ideological fantasy and will not go down that path without a fight.

So knock it off! Get out of our way and go home, grow up, and get a life.

Thought for the Day

If a Democrat really wanted to fight "greed and corruption" all they have to do is refrain from running for and holding public office.

A Brief Comment

I had a little chat with a postal worker on why they aren't delivering mail to the apartment building that I just moved into. I also spoke to the representative of the building owner on why she can't get the post office to deliver mail to the building.

An iron law (if not THE iron law) of bureaucracy is that the so-called workers in the system will make the least effort necessary in order to collect their paychecks. The ideal situation of course is that the bureaucrat should do no work at all in order to collect their pay. [1] Thus it should be no surprise to us that a new generation of Islamic suicide bombers are penetrating security checkpoints manned by the employees of a Federal agency.

In the private sector a serious failure of that magnitude would result in the firing of the employee who failed to do his job and possible criminal prosecution. In the Federal sector a lazy bum is protected by the civil service apparatus. And God help you if you try to discipline an affirmative action diversity hireling. [2]

The Left, in what they imagine to be their infinite wisdom, is now pushing for placing the entire field of medicine in the hands of people who have no stake in the outcome of medical treatments. Whether you, or the most precious members of your family, live or die is simply irrelevant to them as long as they collect their paychecks and pensions. There is no shortage of horror stories coming out of nations where the state provides universal health care. [3]

Innocent people will die needlessly when the state takes over the field of medicine. the nice term for this is murder.

What are your questions on this block of instruction?


1. I've been led to understand that this has been actually achieved in some places in Africa.

2. This may explain why the Democratic Party nominated a grossly inexperienced African-American instead of Hillary Clinton. Apparently many on the left may have felt that the race of Die Grosse Null made him immune from criticism. Not only critics of the policies and actions of the Obama administration are being called racists, they are being called such in a manner similar to the way the old school Klansmen used to describe their victims as "uppity niggers."

3. Livestock on American capitalist farms receive better medical care than the subjects of the Cuban communist state.

So Anyway

I remember when 2010 was a novel by Arthur C. Clarke.
