Herman Cain: Not the affirmative action candidate

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

Because Herman Cain has black accent, and tends to use simple sentences to express himself, while Barack Hussein Obama has a ruling class accent, I initially got the impression that Obama was smarter.  I should have known better.

Herman Cain will answer tricky questions extempore.  No teleprompter for him.  Who then is smarter?   He has lots of facts at his fingertips.   If someone expresses himself simply, it is apt to indicate he cannot express, nor understand, complex ideas, but if someone expresses complex ideas simply, it means he is smart, has charisma, and the common touch.

Herman Cain is smart, has charisma, and the common touch.

Andrew Bolt convicted of heresy and impiety

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Andrew Bolt was convicted for impugning various people by accusing them of being white, merely because they and their parents on both sides were physically and culturally white.  This (calling people white) has been declared to be a racist insult.

Having created special privileges for black people, many of our ruling elite naturally declared themselves to be of the privileged caste, though few of them have ever been close enough to an actual black to spit on them, nor would they send their children to a school where there was any danger of any substantial number of actual blacks attending .  To doubt their entitlement is clearly a racist insult, which must be punished.

Anita Heiss is as white as I am, has never lived anywhere that any significant number of blacks lived, and would never lower herself to live anywhere that any significant number of blacks lived.



“Arctic ice hits near record low”

“Arctic ice hits near record low, Threatening Wildlife”

Since we have been observing the total ice area for thirty years, on average, assuming that there is no long term warming trend, arctic ice will hit a near record low one year out of ten.

But, of course, there are two poles, so in one year out of five either arctic or antarctic ice will hit a near record low. And of course, there is also the rest of the world to have near record events in. (more…)

Herman Cain is front runner for Republican Presidential nomination

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

Governor Romneycare is, or was, the establishment Republican nominee.  When his campaign turned out to be dead on arrival, Rick Perry was the emergency backup establishment republican nominee.  But Herman Cain now leads 28% to 17%

Herman Cain has from the beginning been the main Republican Republican nominee.  Back in May I said “It is a long, long way to the 2012 presidential elections, but they are Herman Cain’s to lose.”   They still are. (more…)

The astroturf arrives to “Occupy Wall Street”

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Until yesterday, the movement to occupy Wall Street was genuine, with a handful of lunatics and a few homeless hippies who had lost their way to the 1969 San Francisco love in.  The hilariously tiny turnout, and the general level of idiocy, was an embarrassment to the left, revealing that the left is not a mass movement, but an elite movement, that the left is merely the voice of the state, that there is no mob with pitchforks that the state is protecting the rich from.  And so, predictably, the astroturf showed up.

No enemies to the left, no friends to the right

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

“What if” is a right wing/libertarian blog.  Yet strangely, is incapable of seeing evil – when evil is on the left.

When however alleged evil is on the right, has not the slightest difficulty in seeing evil.

Those who kiss upwards, can usually be relied on to spit downwards. (more…)

Palin surges

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

Palin’s poll numbers are shooting up.

Although her speech on crony capitalism seemed to go right over the audience’s heads, since then the party faithful have been banging away on message, and it looks like it is penetrating.  Zombie’s cartoon should explain crony capitalism to anyone.

Maybe democracy can work against crony capitalism.  Democracy tends to self destruct in massive vote buying, as tax consumers outnumber taxpayers, but should not self destruct in influence peddling, which is more a problem with Royal Courts.  After the message has been repeated one thousand more times, probably will get through.

No enemies to the left, no friends to the right

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Everyone, including most on the right, wants to kiss up and brown nose leftwards, while condemning and denigrating rightwards, for the left has the power, delivers the gravy, and punishes its enemies. (more…)

Zombie reports the day of rage

Monday, September 19th, 2011

Zombie reports the day of rage.  All the pictures showing them marching down the street, symbolically confronting capitalist institutions, and so forth, show a group of less than twenty, but there is also a photograph of hundreds of people gathered in a park listening to a speech, which gathering looked genuine enough, not much indication of astroturfing.
