thank you, Jonah Goldberg [Mr. G-File] of National Review Online -- whether dating back to the original rendition in 2008 [way "BGT"...Before-G-Thing] or in his present day post of October 15th -- the ideas of a wee little me (from yesterday) are raised to their more proper and higher form! What a talent he has for the gift of gab, game, and glorious glib...so gosh darn good.
His G-note worthy to quote:
The real appeal of the New Deal wasn’t its alleged success, it’s that the New Deal is synonymous with a time when progressives had nearly unfettered political power to do what they wanted. Liberals don’t really worship the New Deal, they worship themselves. The New Deal is just a talisman in their undying faith in their own ability to guide society and make decisions for others better than people can make for themselves.
And, at a fundamental level, the desire for an unending string of New Deals going on forever, is indistinguishable from socialism...
It’s all just so exhausting. And I guess what I resent most of all is the fact that I will spend the rest of my life arguing with people who not only think that their faith in progressivism and the State is smart and modern, but that their opponents are the ones who are stuck in the past. And in the process, they’ll keep making the country worse, with every failure providing the latest evidence that now, now, is the time for a new New Deal.exactly.
Here's a short story of another verse same as the first...
The Setting: Everett Middle School, San Francisco Mission District
Everett is as much a melting pot as the community, with 80 percent of its population comprised of students of color. Only 20 percent of students are white, Van Haren told KTVU. [from post in The Washington Post]The Lead: Lena Van Haren, Principle
The Supporting Roles...Innocent Bystanders, Irrelevant Extras...Props: The entire Student Body
The Antagonist, Unaware: The Democratic Results
Cue the hook.
“This is complex, but as a parent and a principal, I truly believe it behooves us to be thoughtful about our next steps here so that we can have a diverse student council that is truly representative of all voices at Everett,” so said the Principle in an email to the parents...Even though the students voted their conscience, Principle Van Haren just couldn't face the results.
And shockingly, she would have none of it.
Here's more from The Lead (might as well turn her into a one-woman-show and call it the Principle V-Monologues...but I digress):
“It’s not okay for a school that is really, really diverse to have the student representatives majority white,” she told the Chronicle. “The easy thing would have been to announce the results and move on. I intentionally did not choose the easy way because this is so important.”
Cue the orchestra from the G-File, here:
It’s all just so exhausting. And I guess what I resent most of all is the fact that I will spend the rest of my life arguing with people who not only think that their faith in progressivism and the State is smart and modern, but that their opponents are the ones who are stuck in the past.Indeed, nearly unadulterated Shakespearean possibly.
Might I suggest the next school play: Taming of the Shrew -- Revisited, De-Constructed and Made Totally, Unconscionably, Politically Correct.
Here's a true character role... a student at Everett Middle --
“The organizers are saying things like, ‘we want everyone’s voice to be heard,’ but in truth, the voters’ voices are not being heard,” seventh grader Sebastian Kaplan told KRON, another local news station. “The whole school voted for those people, so it is not like people rigged the game, but in a way, now it is kinda being rigged.” [ The Daily Caller]
Yup, now it's "kinda being rigged."
Thank you, Sebastian.
That there sums up nearly all of the left-leaning politics and demographic divides and community organizers and progressives and the State -- note the capital S, for all those participating in the next Spelling Bee.
The results are rigged, respective of how The Left continuously and shamelessly nudge and control behavior; whether or not it's looked upon favorably or not; whether or not it's even something NEW or not; for it's all not for naught.
For just look at us now!
Here we are, with half the body of Americans considering a bonafide Socialist in Bernie Sanders; a freaking liar and fraudster in Hillary Clinton; and soon-to-be, a bumbling buffoon and social justice wannabe idiot in Joe Biden. Ex-squeeze me?
Hate to break it to you, folks, but the fix is already in.
It's called voter fraud, illegal immigration and sanctuary cities....all across America. Rigged. R - I - G- G - E- D. Rigged.
Unless something drastic puts a plug in it, like yesterday, the books are cooked -- the New New Deal is sealed for eternity and America is gone -- and not even in the neighborhood anymore.
Make it a Good Day, G
More to watch on P-U-Ryan for Speaker
go to Breitbart
It's just more rigged government at work:
open borders...really, Ryan?
