The closing of the liberal Left's mind
« on: April 05, 2012, 02:07:32 PM »
Recommended by Michael Sanera of the Locke Foundation is Jennifer Rubin's April 2nd WaPo column.

This stuck out for me:

Quote
In sum, the left systematically has dumbed its side down, to the point where supposedly well-educated elites are untrained and unaware of our country’s history and constitutional traditions. The left thinks words have no fixed meaning (health care and health insurance, are close enough, so they insist we can define the latter to be the former.) The liberal elites have a poor grounding in market economics so they swallow the idea that health-care insurance is “unique” because others’ purchases affect your cost of goods. (Surprise: all markets operate this way.) They advance illogical and counterfactual arguments (e.g., withdrawing a 100 percent subsidy for health care to seniors is a “mandate”) because they are unused to vigorous debate that upsets their preferences dressed up in a thin veil of factual distortion. (Sorry, taking away a freebie is not remotely the same in logic or in law as requiring you purchase something.)


Exactly!

So much of what the Left says and does brings to my mind "Idiocracy".

Most liberals only know what they've been told to know.

Hear what Jay the Carney said about that ObamaCare/Judicial Branch bullying today?  He said the judges should merely adhere to the COMMERCE CLAUSE precedents of the last 80 years.  Anything BFR (Before Franklin Roosevelt) is moot!  They have walled themselves off from anything challenging their extraconstitutional actions.  How unintellectual is it to pretend the nations founding and through the Hoover Administration completely void?

They are idiotic, despotic and insane!  But they are convinced they are the enlightened ones who should be followed, worshipped and obeyed without question.

These jackasses got a lot of rude awakenings coming!
GOP? - Nope. No more. They made their bed, now let them die in it.*
