The devil made them do it

Posted on Updated on

Devil

Just go ahead and emblazon the term “the devil made me do it” on the seal of the Democratic National Committee.  Decadence, elimination of God, bowing to the environment as a god rather than the creator of the environment, and the general loathing for individual self-reliance are considered liberal traits by many.  There’s an obvious similarity in values between liberals and the devil.  Liberals seem to clearly believe that there should be a lack of moral consequences for the decisions we make in life and hence a lack of moral responsibility.  The fact that there are over one million abortions a year is horrific.  Throw in the fact that Planned Parenthood harvests body parts like their running an auto scrap yard is unconscionable.

The push by liberals to reduce individual self-reliance is significant.  Without independence, government is free to grow at will, inflicting liberal collectivism upon society rather than individuality.  Take home-school teaching as an example.  Many liberals fume over the notion that education can be provided by parents without government interference or control.  Another example is masculinity.  We’ve seen the liberals’ definition of a man; a dainty, doe-eyed, child-like representation of an adult complete with hair gel, skinny jeans and a fanny pack.  It’s not surprising that this is the picture that liberals want to paint.  Boldness, masculinity, independence and family values reek of individual power.

And finally, compassion.  Liberals have compassion but for some reason there’s more compassion for the criminals than for the victim.  We guess that since the anti-God ideals and planks in their political platform, help create the criminals, the next logical action is to make excuses for them.

All of this points to a real similarity between liberals and the devil.  Or at least makes the devil a big fan.

Rahm Emanuel dithers himself into a crisis

Rahm

It appears as though Rahm Emanuel has continued Chicago’s long tradition of corruption.  This boss waited a year before releasing the dash cam video and now the possibility of another video being deliberately disposed of.  This smells as bad as all of those turkey carcasses that have been sitting in garbage cans for several days.

Optimism on Thanksgiving? Compare the Washington Post and Washington Times

Posted on Updated on

The Thanksgiving 2015 editions of both the Washington Post and the Washington Times covered some of the same traditional territory that all national papers seem inclined to cover.  Two examples are Obama’s turkey pardoning and holiday traveling.  Beyond that though, there’s a glaring difference in the tone and content of each paper’s coverage of this uniquely American holiday.

Below are the Thanksgiving-related articles from 11/26/15.  A few more in the Times than the Post, which might not be startling.  But in addition to having more content, there’s a decidedly brighter tone to the Times’ articles as a whole.  Each Thanksgiving article listed in this table is highlighted in green if it had a positive, optimistic or heartwarming emphasis.  It’s clear at a glance that the Times provided its readers with words of encouragement far beyond those of the Post.  Also of note is the size difference in both papers; 54 pages vs 26.

In 54 pages the Post put a positive touch to only four of its articles related to Thanksgiving.  Over three times the number of articles in the Times were positive (13) in a paper that was less than half the size. 

Post Times Table

All of this may be of no interest, but clearly one paper lives by the motto that “bad news sells” and hence not much room left for positive and uplifting content.  If you want positive, you can always check out the Post’s  horoscopes.

Thanksgiving, a time for …. politics?

ThanksgivingOur fearless leader suggested we spend a little quality time this Thanksgiving mixing politics in with our turkey and fixin’s.  Nothing says love, togetherness, and holidays more than a heated discussion over gun control.  Isn’t he satisfied enough with tearing the country apart that he doesn’t need to have families fighting as well?

Obama attempt at calm?

Afraid

Obama isn’t exactly inspiring confidence.  Even listening to his rambling you’d think it was a middle schooler trying to convince classmates that he’s the right man for class presidency, complete with plenty of “ums and uhs” to fully sell his commitment.   Middle school students basically just wanted free stuff so maybe that’s his target audience, or democrats.  Although, we’re sure there’s an army of unicorns just around the corner that Obama’s preparing to unleash on the unsuspecting bad-guys-with-good-media-skills ISIS.

CNN, with careful editing, helps us focus on their version of Trump’s message

Posted on Updated on

CNN is helping us all with time management by clipping out context from interviews.  Check out how CNN edited Donald Trump’s statements during an “interview” with an NBC reporter.  Why waist valuable video time leaving in material that could place context on what a candidate is discussing, especially when it doesn’t fit your agenda (sarcasm).

Here’s how the video came across originally on CNN.

Reporter: Should there be a database that tracks Muslims entering this country?

Trump: There should be a lot of systems, beyond databases. We should have a lot of systems, and today you can do it.

Reporter: Is that something your White House would like to implement?

Trump: I would certainly implement that. Absolutely.

CNN Video of Trump’s Comments

Now for that oh-so-unnecessary video portion that provides context in bold.

Reporter: Should there be a database that tracks Muslims entering this country?

Trump: There should be a lot of systems, beyond databases. We should have a lot of systems, and today you can do it. But right now we need to have a border, we have to have strength we have to have a wall, and we cannot let what’s happening to this country happen any longer.

Reporter: Is that something your White House would like to implement?

Trump: I would certainly implement that. Absolutely.

Shame on CNN for editing, shame on NBC for deploying gotcha questions, and also shame on Trump for not listening carefully to the question.
