The Death of the Incandescent Bulb: It’s Not about Which Bulb is Better, It’s about Who Gets to Decide
By marfdrat on January 3, 2014
Liberals are all about choice for citizens, so long as it’s the choice they want you to make. Abortion has become enshrined in the pantheon of choices that Americans must be able to make for themselves. But when it comes to deciding which kind of light bulb you want to buy, well, you aren’t smart enough to make that decision. Using the false premise of anthropogenic global warming as the basis of their argument, our progressive overlords have decided that you aren’t able to choose which kind of bulb to buy, so they’ve successfully legislated the incandescent bulb out of existence.

There’s a set of assumptions that seem to go with liberal/progressive descriptions of capitalists: wealthy, greedy, exploitative, and most of all evil. That set of assumptions is built in to their explanations of everything that’s wrong with the American economy today. The only problem is none of them are true. Jonathon Moseley explains at American Thinker explains what a capitalist is, and what it is not:

It’s so funny to see “cause-jumpers” like this that think they know what they’re protesting, but when you ask them to provide details, they don’t have any idea what the hell they’re talking about. They get their marching orders from Mother Jones or The Daily Kos or some other progressive mouthpiece, but don’t engage in any sort of critical examination of the facts. Reason.tv gives you just a small sample of the cluelessness. Perfect example: When asked why she’s against the Kochs, specifically, purchasing the LA Times, a young woman responds “Well, uh, their record speaks for it self” – translation: I don’t have any idea why I’m opposed to it; I’m just doing what the rest of the people here are doing.

In his Neo-Com SOTU address last night, President Obama promised more of the same terrible economic policy that’s been holding the country back for nearly his entire presidency. A proposal to increase the minimum wage to $9 per hour is a perfect example. No more workers will get closer to making the much-desired-by-liberals “living wage” – in fact, more low-wage workers will lose their jobs (as has been amply demonstrated before).

Former Washington D.C. prosecutor Jeffrey Scott Shapiro spent a lot of time enforcing gun and ammunition laws while the district’s strict gun ban was in place. He observed that the ban placed unnecessary burdens on police (who had to enforce ridiculous provisions like grandfathered handguns had to be disassembled or trigger locked, even if you were being robbed at gunpoint), and caused the crime rate to skyrocket. When criminals are sure they aren’t going to encounter any resistance from their victims, what’s going to deter them? Nothing.

George Will thinks so. If you look at his logic -which involves the number of Democrats who voted to make most of the Bush tax rates permanent- it looks pretty solid (my bold emphasis).

Michelle Obama basically said that Republicans are rampant liars when it comes to defending Americans’ right to vote (White House Dossier). Of course, as is the pattern with liberals, she didn’t give even one supporting bit of evidence to back her claim. It’s just the seriousness of the allegation that makes it newsworthy to the liberal media.

Honestly, it’s amazing that this “network” survives. Melissa Harris-Perry gets enraged when one of her co-panelists has the temerity to suggest that entrepreneurs are risk takers. In her delusionally upside-down world, it’s the poor people who are taking risks. I love how she insists that we need to have a safety net that will “catch you, and catch you, and catch you (in unending fashion).” This is the liberal’s view of government. No matter what, the government will always be there with the goodies. And, conversely, entrepreneurs -small business owners- are “rich”. Anybody that has, or tries, is rich, and a target of liberal derision. This view is blissfully unaware that the evil entrepreneurs and their employee minions are the ones that provide the “goodies” for the government to hand out.

Mayor Menino says Chick-fil-A shouldn’t be able to do business in Boston, because of Chritian Beliefs held by its owner. On the other hand, he effectively gave the Islamic Society of Boston $1.8 million of city land for a mosque. Among the leaders of that mosque was one Jusef al-Qaradawi. That radical imam believes you should kill homosexuals. Their only issue, apparently, was exactly how to do it.

For an organization that pretends to be interested in the welfare of animals, PETA has an interesting track record with the animals it takes into its shelters:

That’s right; the left in this country today wants to change society, but in ways you feeble unwashed denizens of flyover country couldn’t possible understand. Your American ideals are actually screwing up their vision for a “great” American society. Daniel Greenfield has a brilliant essay at Sultan Knish that explains a lot about the mindset of today’s liberals.

I’m glad Herman Cain scored a big victory in the Florida Straw Poll this weekend. It gives news outlets another chance to display the hypocrisy of Hollyweird leftist types that say the Tea Party is raaaaacist. How can a group that is based on racism, and seeks a return to “when slavery was cool” (yes, and PMSNBC anchor actually said that) being throwing their support behind a black man? Could it be that what they’re really threatened by is the prospect of losing their “Republicans are racist” grip over the black population in this country?
