Progressive Burn

Without much time to blog these days, I’m finding myself having to rely on the “picture is worth a thousand words” concept.  With that being said, let’s get started:

The following is what the Progressive Liberal in the White House has been doing since he has been elected.  One can only wonder what his real endgame is, but we do know what another “progressive socialist” did and plunged the world into war.

I’m not letting the Republicans off the hook either – they have been complicit in the machinations of the Divider in Chief…

Next on the list are the candidates running for the Democratic nomination for President.

I’ve chronicled here and in other places the unsuitability of the Hildebeast for the office.  Her health issues, lack of a moral compass, disrespect for the Constitution and the People of the United States are only the tip of the iceberg of scandals & bodies upon which she stands.  How in the hell can people actually believe that she is qualified for any house except the Big House is beyond me.

Bernie Sanders isn’t much better.  Take a look at the following graphic:

And Bernie wants to do this to fund his version of “a chicken in every pot” campaign slogan:

feel the bern

Bernie (and the Hildabeast) also wants government-run healthcare for everyone.  However, the example that we have doesn’t bode well for anyone if that comes to pass.  The example?

Let’s also remember that both of these candidates feel that once elected that they can write the laws that govern the United States, and have said so in various speeches.  Both of them want to violate the Constitution’s First and Second Amendments in order to further their progressive agendas.  They need to be reminded of the following:

president cannot write law

This also goes for the Republican candidates as well – a couple of them have stated their ignorance of the Constitution.

Last on my list for today is the apparent inability of college-age students to deal with reality.  I’ll let the following do the talking for me:

Unicorns and Rainbows – Part 3

The typical Progressive Liberal confuses me, and quite frankly, I think they are confused as well.  What they say and do are so contradictory to a rational line of thinking leaves me with multiple WTH moments.

This is the third installment of the series.


The Progressive Liberal seems to have a soft spot in their hearts for the poor, the downtrodden, the unemployed.  They have spoken of their undying support to “help” the unfortunate among us.  While this is a noble sentiment, the Progressive Liberal seems to be at odds with what they promise and what they deliver.

Since the Johnson administration declared a “War on Poverty” in the 1960s, has there been much change?  Billions have been spent on this “war” and poverty is still in the United States.  Yes, the rate has risen and fallen over the years, usually tied to the strength of the nation’s economy, but it has not fallen below 11% from the data I have been able to find. 

The billions of tax dollars has been spent for jobs training programs (for those who sign up for them), and Welfare/Medicaid programs.  Over the years, there has been on/off requirements for people who sign up for Welfare enroll in jobs training and drug tests to weed out those people who are not serious in turning their lives around.  Depending on who was in elected office, those requirements were either enforced or removed, and the Welfare roles declined or increased accordingly.  Please note that relaxing the requirements was usually done in the name of compassion.  Remember this last statement…

Likewise, the unemployment rate has also risen and fallen with the strength of the economy.  When the economy is strong, the unemployment rate is low.  Likewise, when the economy is weak, the unemployment rate is high, and the unemployment benefits are at record levels.  Also note that with the last downturn in the economy, employment benefits were extended to a record 48 months (4 years!).  Unemployment rates are dropping, but with the way the data is gathered, it isn’t known if people are finding new jobs or are just dropping off the unemployment roles & not getting new jobs.  With the economy as sluggish as it is, I would think it is the latter.

We now find ourselves in an economy that is barely (and I mean barely) growing.  And what do the Progressive Liberal politicians want to do in the name of compassion (among others)?

Embrace the undocumented worker!

In a time of where Americans are unemployed or underemployed, the Progressive Liberal political elite wish to welcome and legitimize the illegal aliens that are in this country, and encourage others to do the same. 

This is madness!  This is insanity!  Not only will this take away job opportunities for Americans, but increase the burden upon the Welfare system when these people cannot find jobs! 

Yes, I have heard the arguments that these people will do the jobs that Americans will not do.  I have heard the pleas that these people are looking for a better life for their families and themselves.  Fine – I agree to some extent – but let them come in legally!! 

The reality of the above is to keep people on Welfare and dependent upon the Progressive Liberal for their sustenance, and to introduce another class of people into the world of depending upon the Progressive Liberal for their livelihood.

Ironic Lesson

Note:  By no means am I against people who have no other means of support to receive government assistance.  I am, however, against the pond scum who make it their mission in life to scam the system to receive my taxpayer dollars for their livelihood & make no attempt to better themselves nor to earn an honest living.

Unicorns and Rainbows – Part 2

The typical Progressive Liberal confuses me, and quite frankly, I think they are confused as well.  What they say and do are so contradictory to a rational line of thinking leaves me with multiple WTH moments.

This is the second installment of the series.


The more and more that I think about what a Progressive Liberal states and what they do is leading me to a thought that the Progressive Liberal is anti-person to the point that they will sacrifice people to achieve what they believe will be the ultimate Utopia on earth.  Let’s take the following examples.

During a speech on gun control, the most rabidly Progressive Liberal President that the United States has ever had stated, “If there’s a step we can take to save even one child, we should take that step.”  This same President praised the abortion provider Planned Parenthood.  One can smell the hypocrisy…

When the government of California was taken over by the Ecology wing of the Progressive Liberals, most if not all forward-thinking water management plans (reservoirs & dams) were cancelled stating ecological damage to certain critters.  As the population grew, the water infrastructure became less and less capable of supporting the populace and the farming industry.  California is now suffering a water shortage of epic proportions due to these shortcomings.  The Progressive Liberal solution is to cut back water consumption to both the population and to the farmers, especially the farmers.  What happens to the California economy if the farmers go broke, and the people if they starve?

The Progressive Liberal is, for the most part, rabidly anti-gun (there are a few exceptions).  No price is too great to pay to rid guns from the population.  If they have their way, no one but the government and criminals will have guns, and the law-abiding population will have no defense against the predators from either group.

“With guns, we are citizens.  Without guns, we are subjects.” – Anonymous

The Progressive Liberal always seem to promote and encourage other viewpoints, but when confronted with other opinions and facts, the reaction is almost always the same:  Deny and attack the confronter personally.  It’s almost comical if they weren’t so damned serious and seemingly unaware of their hypocrisy.

The Progressive Liberal also is promoting electric cars as an alternative to gasoline powered cars because they are more environmentally friendly.  Not so.  Energy must be created to charge the batteries, so the power is being generated for the vehicle is being moved from the tailpipe of the vehicle to the power plant.  The chemicals used in the batteries are very toxic, and cannot be fully recycled (let’s not go into the mining of the components, which is a toxic process in of itself).  The cars are relatively expensive, which lower income people simply cannot afford.  And finally, it is not very practical for people with large commutes to have a car that runs out of energy after 30-40 miles (think California multilane highways clogged with cars).

But the Progressive Liberal has answers for the above.  Solar and wind electric generation replacing coal-fired power plants.  More research (government funded, of course) to non-toxic alternatives to the battery and range situations.  Cars will become cheaper as time goes on (with government subsidies to the poor).

Alternative energy such as solar and wind are not reliable, and have their own problems.  Both take up huge amounts of land, and have their own negative impacts upon the environment, of which the Environmental wing of the Progressive Liberal is remarkably silent.

Government funding and subsidies come from the taxpayers, and quite frankly, I’m tired of paying taxes for boondoggles and the politically connected companies like Solyndra.  It’s also somewhat comical when various Progressive Liberals find out that THEY will be paying for these programs out of their paycheck.

All of the above have had or are having negative impacts upon people of this country.  Yet the Progressive Liberal is blissfully unaware of the hypocritical nature of their policies negative impacts, especially upon the people that they state that they to want to protect – the poor and disadvantaged.

Unicorns and Rainbows – Part 1

The typical Progressive Liberal confuses me, and quite frankly, I think they are confused as well.  What they say and do are so contradictory to a rational line of thinking leaves me with multiple WTH moments.  Let’s take the following “for instance”:


The recent expose of Planned Parenthood selling aborted baby parts and the reactions of various political figures is telling on many fronts.  Forget about having a rational discussion – it’s all finger-pointing, misdirection, and “feelings.”

Let’s get down to the brass-tacks right up front – abortion is the willful killing of a developing human being, i.e., baby or fetus.  It does not matter if the fetus is an hour old, a week old, a month old, or however old – the fetus is genetically human.  This is a scientific fact and cannot be refuted except in today’s legal world.

In today’s tortured legalistic world, a fetus is not a human up to a certain point in time.  After this time has passed, the fetus miraculously becomes not a mass of cells, but a person.  But is that really true?  How about the following true case.

During a robbery, pregnant woman was shot, causing her to lose the baby.  The robber was charged with murder, but the defense attorneys countered that the baby wasn’t a baby in the legal sense since it was only 2-months old at the time of the robbery / shooting.  Since the laws of the state at the time allowed for an abortion up to the 4-month mark, the fetus wasn’t a person, and that his client should be charged with a lesser crime.  The court would have none of that, and tossed the defense motion & the robber was later convicted of murder.

So what does this tell us?  If a baby is wanted, it’s a person no matter how old, and if the baby is unwanted, there’s an expiration date up to which to abort the baby?  Exactly how insane is this idea?

Let’s stack this thought up with the typical Progressive Liberal mantra of “it’s for the children” for any and all governmental funding of boondoggles with taxpayer money for their favorite mismanaged social program.  They always state that children should be protected and deserve the very best that can be offered.

Really?  Seriously?  If children are truly so precious, so innocent, so deserving of protection, should they not be protected from the moment of conception?

Obviously not in the view of the Progressive Liberal…

In their world, a baby isn’t a baby until it’s wanted by someone or past some legal date that has no basis in reality.  After that point in time, they become a person.

How screwed up is that?  To determine when a person is a person is like trying to figure out how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.  It can’t be done, and any rationalization is contorted legalized reasoning.  Such was the falsified testimony during the “Roe vs. Wade” arguments which lead to the Supreme Court deciding that abortion was a woman’s right.  Let’s be perfectly clear:  To hide behind the statement that it’s “the law of the land” will not absolve anyone from the moral implications of performing or having an abortion.

However, is this really what we’ve come to?  To determine when life is created from a legalized standpoint?  That is exactly what our legal minds have come up with – a legal definition of life.

To reject out of hand that a fetus is not human is the most irresponsible attitude toward human life I have ever heard of. The fact is, science doesn’t know at what point a growing embryo ceases to be just a mass of cells and becomes conscious human life. In the absence of such knowledge, one should err on the side of caution.  And barring any unforeseen issues, that mass of cells will become a human being in time.

But that fact does not deter many politicians from defending the murder of their fellow human beings, the most innocent and defenseless of us all.  It is estimated that abortion has ended the lives of somewhere between 50 and 55 million children in the womb from 1973 to 2011.

Lastly, we, as a society, have become mostly numb to this “procedure” that has killed millions. What does that say about us?  Not what we would like to think about ourselves, that’s for sure.

Save the whales, save the polar bears, save the Earth from global warming climate change, save the trees, save whatever cause is in vogue this week – that seems to be what our Progressive Liberals want to focus on.  What about save the babies?

If children are so precious that they must be protected against all harm, real and imagined, then why, why, do (Progressive) Liberals support, in any and all of its grotesque & horrific forms, the abortion of innocent unborn children?
