The Politics of Personal Distraction

Ignorance is the hallmark of progressivism. My neighbor is so proud to call herself a progressive, from a very progressive family. Yet I'm convinced she has no idea what "progressive" means. She and her husband were thrilled when de Blasio won the mayoral seat in New York City. Why? Because he has a black wife. Not kidding. That was his sole credential, in their minds. That was the evidence they cited for me as to why they were happy de Blasio was elected. You can't make this stuff up!
Mike, you said something that raised the hair on the back of my neck: "...when the matter came up for a vote, the junior faculty rebelled and voted it down." Saw another article recently where layoffs at an American university pitted the older professors against the younger. Saw an article on a college site about how peeved university students (at least those who have a clue) are about debt, deficit, and NSA. What I see fomenting is a true rebellion among the young. Obama likely drools at the thought of another "victim class" to manipulate, but he doesn't understand this group will be coming for those in power, Dem and Repub alike.
You mean to tell me that Handel did not spend four years drinking herself into oblivion, smoking dope, asserting her feminist rights within the male construct of the patriarchy to screw every frat boy who would have her, allowing leftist professors to indoctrinate her and basically wasting time until she turned 21? Well, her opponent just made the case to vote for HER, not for HIM!
God feels everything. Your ability to feel anything came from Him. You were made in His image, and that means your emotional makeup. Happy? He feels it with you times infinity. Peeved? Yah He feels is way worse than you. Why would you be surprised that God has the ability to get hacked off, especially when his kids (you) turn their back on Him.
And that is exactly what is happening here.
De Blasio is helping those poor horses right onto a truck for the glue factory.
Ohhhh there you go with the mud slinging. My post is "ridiculous." (I'm quoting you so that you will not accuse me of putting words in your mouth, as Ericstompyfoot has accused me.). Well, doesn't your calling my post "ridiculous" just make you so very smart. And precious. Bless your heart.
Birdman, that's exactly where I was going with my next comment. Eric is mincing here, going on the attack by accusing me of putting words in his mouth...but his inference is my focus, his inference being that well gosh at least pot isn't as bad as ALCOHOL! And that, my friends, is the meme being pushed on us. And Eric, next time you do your little stumpy foot thing, where you say you'll just wait right here for me to respond, let me promise you a wait. I am an actual mom. With actual kids. And an actual husband. And an actual job. So I'm actually busy and can only afford sporadic time reading posts like yours....
Of course it's a stretch....for the short-sighted among us, like you, doc. Go ask all those "racists" and "bigots" in Britain about market conditioning to prepare for "change." I will learn from their sad example. I will not be silent. And you cannot shame me, nor shut me up by suggesting I'm "stretching." The fact that you felt moved to respond to my post tells me I'm on target.
