Emanuel, Drooling Over Death

tgwWhale Wrote: Dec 01, 2014 10:18 AM
It was Nietzsche (of all people) who understood this. He proclaimed that "God is dead" and then understood that this left us "beyond good and evil." In other words, if you leave God out of the picture, there is no REAL standard of right and wrong. So Emanuel and his ilk treat human life as having value because people can produce stuff. Thus for them, people lose value when "creativity, originality, and productivity are pretty much gone." Such utilitarianism is pretty much what you're left with when you've decided that first, there is no God (or at least, no God that matters), and yet, as a socialist, you think that "we" have to pay for everyone's health care out of limit resources. It's only if you buy that old idea that "God" created all people in His image, and then "God" (the only Son, no less) died to save those people, that you can consistently come to the conclusion that all people have infinite value -- even unwanted unborns, or old people lost in dementiaville, or even Barack Hussein Obozo and Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel.
To illustrate the vile, radical EVIL of communism never gets "tired." Especially when there is a communist in the White House and communists dominate the colleges and the public school system.
It should surprise no one that the leftist idiots at Berkeley support ISIS but hate Israel. This is how the leftist reasoning goes: (1) The original rebellion of the Left is against the Judeo-Christian moral system, which is the core of Western civilization, because this moral system is self-denying -- all the "Thou shalt nots," especially regarding sexuality. If you want self-indulgence, that moral code must go. (2) When this moral code is rejected, the lefties fall back on a childish way of looking at the world, which I call "cartoon morality." In this system there is only one way of looking at things: the big guy is the bad guy, and he exploits the little guy, who is always the good guy. (The Marxist terms for "big guy" and "little guy" are "oppressor" and "oppressed.") All issues are seen through this template. (3) This is why the leftist fools always support revolutionaries, no matter how revolting they are: because they claim to be on the side of the little guy against the "oppressors." (4) And so they support ISIS and hate Israel, because Israel is rich and Western, and therefore bad -- the "big guy." Their support for ISIS and other terrorist gangs is part of their support for anyone who hates the "big guy." When you understand how leftist thought works, you understand why the lefties take such morally obscene positions such as support for ISIS.

You know, if the Obozo gang started regulating the Internet, they would protect his kind of lying crappola, and suppress all of the real posts, except for Will and Doctor Roy.

The Dims played the only card they had. It was a losing card but they had no other card, because Obozo and his gang have messed up so many things so much. The Dims are dependent on getting 95% of the black vote. No matter whom they run, no matter what the issues are, they get 95% of the black vote. They could run Dracula or Frankenstein or the Thing from the Black Lagoon, and they would still get 95% of the black vote. What they need to do to win to get black people out to vote. It's all about turnout. Obozo, because he is black, got blacks to vote in higher percentages than whites voted; and along with massive fraud, this got Obozo elected twice. Since they did not have a black running for POTUS this time around, they tried to frighten blacks into voting with all of their vile, dishonest insults and threats. They failed; but it was the only card they had to play. The Dims are a racist party. They are heavily dependent on racist votes, that is, people voting based on skin color -- either their own or that of the candidate. They are currently trying to do with Hispanics what they successfully did with blacks. Their policies fail, so they fall back on racism. It has worked for them since the 60's. This time, it didn't work. But as I said, it was the only card they had to play.

People who were stupid enough t support Obamacare lies are probably stupid enough to believe your spam lies. You won't find them here on TH. Go to Huffpo, and maybe you'll find some brain-dead suckers over there. And because of course no one reads replies to spam posts: Flagged, of course, for spam.
It is of great interest to the government whether families be stable, since that is a primary foundation of a functional society. If you eliminate marriage, you get Detroit. Detroit is what happens when people kiss family stability good-by. Every human society I have ever heard of has some kind of socially-sanctioned marriage. All of human history, all of human experience, shows the importance of family stability -- thus, of marriage. And thus the gov't has great interest in it.
The reasons that the polls were so bad this time around were: (1) As more and more states require photo-ID to vote, the ability of the Dims to cheat goes down. The pollsters need to catch up on this one and change their fudge factors. In other words, the old fudge factors unknowingly included a huge block of fraudulent votes that did not happen this time around, so they over-forecast the Dim vote. (2) A great part of the Dim base stayed home because Obozo wasn't on the ballot. These people voted Obozo in 2012 exclusively because of his skin color, and were not interested in coming out and voting for Dim candidates of vanilla flavor.
(1) Transporting oil by pipeline is MUCH SAFER than transporting it by rail: this is a big benefit for your "regular joe." (2) Transporting oil by pipeline is MUCH CHEAPER than transporting it by rail. This leads to lower energy prices. That is a big benefit for your "regular joe," particularly if joe drives a car or heats his home. (3) Because transporting oil by pipeline is much cheaper, it makes American (and, yes, Canadian) oil more economically competitive with cheaply-produced Saudi oil. This leads to more drilling (and so forth) in the U.S., which means more jobs for your "regular joe." (4) Because creating jobs in the oil fields of North Dakota and Montana (whose oil would be eventually shipped via the Keystone) creates jobs there for your "regular joe," and cheaper energy expands the economy creates jobs everywhere -- which, believe it or not, is good news for your "regular joe." This is all pretty simple, but since you're a prog, it's probably beyond your understanding.

An Old Hatred Returns

THE essential tenet of liberalism is a worldview that consists of the Big Guy and the Little Guy (in Marxist terms, "oppressor" and "oppressed"). In this way of seeing the world, the Big Guy is always the bad guy, the Little Guy is always the good guy. Everything is seen through that template. Under such a worldview, the Israelis MUST be the bad guy because they are rich and of Western culture. Middle Eastern problems MUST be their fault. The Palestinians cannot be at fault, because they are (generally) poor and not of Western culture. They are the poor, the oppressed, the victims -- that is, the good guys. Most American Jews support the Democrats, even though the Dems are anti-Israel, because most American Jews are progs. Thus they buy into the "oppressor/oppressed" worldview. Thus they are anti-Israel, even though they are Jewish themselves.
