4 Ways to Tell a Conservative from a Leftist

America was once called "the melting pot," because it became home to people from all over the world. They "melted" into the culture that was America and were proud to be known as Americans. Today, America is less of a melting pot and more of a smoke some pot, kind of nation. We are divided mainly by two philosophically opposed poles, conservatives and leftists.

Sometimes it isn't obvious as to which pole a person positions him or herself, but hopefully the information below will help sort it out for you.

1. American exceptionalism: President Obama told the world in a Tele Prompter speech that America is exceptional just like countries in Europe are exceptional. No more, no less. 

Conservatives believe that America is exceptional and goes above and beyond any other country in the world. It is not egotistical banter, nor is it simply bragging, because it`s true--at least conservatives believe so.

Leftists don`t believe America is exceptional in a good way--they see America as a nation of bullies who staunchly believe in a 200 year old document that has outlived its usefulness, the US Constitution. They believe the president has the power to override the Constitution at those times when a leftist president is in office. 

Insofar as other countries are concerned, leftists believe that we are no better than Russia, Iran, Afghanistan, or China. In order for us to peacefully coexist with these nations, we must have an open and honest dialogue, shake hands, and show cooperation. Leftists believe that if we could just all sit around a camp fire, belt out a round of Kumbayah, and roast marshmallows, the world would get along. They even have the feelings to prove it.

2. Military: Conservatives believe that "God made man, but Samuel Colt made them equal." They believe in a strong military as a deterrent to tyrants like Vladimir Putin, Hitler and Ed Schultz. (More on him later.) 

Conservatives worry that Obama's military cuts will weaken our national strength and make us look weak to the Putins and Hitlers of the world, while being just right for the Ed Schultz's. 

Bullies are usually afraid of real strength, and this goes for our enemies. 

Leftists, on the other hand, believe the military is populated by knuckle-dragging cretins. They wince when conservatives call soldiers and marines returning from Afghanistan, "heroes." To leftists, the real heroes are basketball players and media darlings who come out of the closet and admit they're gay. How brave to be seen by the left as "cool." 

3. Power: Conservatives make no secret that they want the GOP in power, and some would like to see the Tea Party rise to power and reduce the federal government. In order to win elections, the party members hand out fliers, knock on doors, and air TV ads.

Leftists do the same, but they take it a step farther. Not only do they run TV ads, hand out fliers, and visit houses, they go to cemeteries and visit graves where some of the best registered voters' remain remain. (Try using "remain" in tandem like that, eh.)

Conservative principals are dictated by the successes from the past and some go as far back as the Founding Fathers and the aforementioned Constitution.

Leftists principals are dictated by emotional processes that go back to what the media tells them it should be, and to unproven beliefs that often fly in the face of facts.

Where a conservative might say: "I may not believe in what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it;" a leftist might say: "I do not agree with what you say, but will work tirelessly to get you fired for saying it."

4. Income equality: Conservatives believe that income should be performance-based. A fully competent person working at a company for 10 years is more valuable to the company than a fully competent person working for the same company in the same position for ten days. Now if that newbie turns out to be more valuable to the company for whatever reason, the free market will dictate to the company (without even really dictating) that he or she should be compensated more than someone with less value.

Leftists want to see everyone making the same income for the same job, regardless of intrinsic value to the company. It's the "everyone gets a trophy" attitude, and it's putting a pin in the balloon of ambition and drive.

The reason leftists believe this way is because honest competition scares the crap out of them. Rarely are they the ones who came in first in suicide dodge-ball or soccer. If they lose at something, they define themselves as losers. 

Conservatives have less fear of competition. They know how it has driven America to be first to the moon, for example. They know how hard work pays off. 

Leftists know how hard work is.

IRS Boneheads Get Bonuses

The IRS is paying out bonuses to boneheads. The workers who are in charge of collecting our taxes believe they don't need to pay their own taxes. About 1100 employees are guilty of this, and so far, nothing is being done to stop them. There are other miscreants who have gotten lousy work reviews, and have poor attitudes, but they're getting paid off too. They may not even be barred from going to one of the famous conferences the IRS is famous for.

It seems like our government whose job it is to keep themselves honest, has as much clout as the king of the US, Barack Hussein Obama. And of course, they seem to have about the same honesty as the boneheads of whom I speak.

Who in our government is responsible for monitoring this nonsense? Why are we allowing this total disregard of the policies, the same policies these cretins are supposed to enforce, to have no repercussions?

Perhaps it's time for all of us to reconsider who we have voted into office. Perhaps it's time to clean house and vote these career politicians out. Maybe it isn't the tea party folks who are the real terrorists, like Harry Weed so likes to claim.

Maybe part of the solution is to have term limits in both the House and Senate so that career politicians like Reid and Pelosi, as well as some in the GOP, will need to find real jobs.

In any case, I want to be removed from their mailing list and have them removed from their jobs, sans bonus.

Ethanol Bad; Gasoline Good--but try telling that to the left

A new government study has concluded that bio-fuels increases greenhouse gasses than traditional fuels. Yes, believe it or not, Barack Obama, Al Gore, and The View have been wrong about bio-fuels all along. 

I mean, I can see President Obama being wrong--he has never worked in the energy industry, or, um, any industry before, and Al Gore is a money-chasing twit who would sell his children to the gypsies (please, if you are a gypsy reading this, I apologize--selling a Gore child to you would be better for the child than growing up in that hypocrite's home). But Whoopie Goldberg?

The National Association of Corn Growers have dismissed the study, saying that it's bogus. But it's a government study--Obama's government--how could it be bogus?

The corn growers have a lot at stake--their corn is used in making ethanol, a gasoline substitute. But ethanol puts out a lot of crap in the air and gasoline turns out to be environmentally superior.

The left is aghast that "green" energy is a bigger pollutant than good old fashioned gasoline and coal. The left would like to put the kahbosh on these fuels, even if it means that the poor pay more or go cold or die. The left doesn't really care about the honest facts--they care about the power to force people to follow their dictates.

And let's face it; not ALL Democrats are racists, misogynists, and haters. There has to be some who wouldn't mind if blacks and latinos voted Republican and not for Hillary. There has to be a few who wouldn't call such voters "Uncle Toms," and the like.

But I suspect that anyone who, after this government study, still wants to substitute ethanol for gasoline, and solar energy for coal, would not be the few Democrats that fall into the category I speak about. 

Never forget Solyndra.

A New York reporter, is captured by Islamist terrorists who demand the release of three Gitmo prisoners in exchange for him. If the president refuses their demands, they plan to behead the reporter and videotape it for the Internet. But the United States doesn’t give in to terrorist’s demands and he has 24 hours before he is to be executed.

Nigeria: Over 200 Young Women and Girls Kidnapped by Religious Muslim Group

Chibok, Nigeria: over 200 young women and girls were taken from their boarding school by the Islamic group, Boko Haram. Some of the parents are frantically searching for their missing children while security forces are supposedly in "hot pursuit." 
A group religious discussion

Parents wept and begged the kidnappers to "have mercy on our daughters," and pleaded for the government to help in their rescue. Some of the parents headed into the dangerous forest on  motorcycles where the victims are believed to have been taken, ignoring the dangers that lie within. A week has gone by without success thus far.

One parent, Musa Muka, who had her 17 year old child abducted, said: "We plead with the government to help rescue her and her friends; we pray nothing happens to her." Let's hope that her prayers were asked of the Muslim god, and not any other--Boko Haram doesn't cotton well to anyone who is non-Muslim.

It is likely that anywhere from 39 to 50 girls escaped the abduction, but the actual number isn't clear. However, this latest event is a clear embarrassment to the Nigerian military after announcing last week that they had rescued all but 8 of the captives. Unlike the Obama administration that usually doubles-down after being caught in a lie, the Nigerian military actually retracted their statement.

Major General Chris Olukolade, who is the very model of a modern Major General and Defense Ministry spokesman said, "The operation is going on and we will continue to deploy more troops." This should give great comfort to those parents who are missing their girls--the government has been as effective as Bill de Blasio in his effort to fight terrorism in New York City.

Results of religious discussion
The Nigerian Air Force was bombing the forest daily until now, but has to stop the sorties to prevent harming the innocent victims. In all probability, they are being used as sex slaves and peons--after all, it's Islamic tradition to enslave your enemies, you can read it in the Koran.

In a video by Boko Haram's leader, Abubakar Shekau, he repeated his opposition to the "corrupting" Western influences and said, "Everyone that calls himself a Muslim must stop obeying the constitution, must abandon democracy, must stay away from Western education. Western education is sinful." He didn't weigh in on whether abducting girls and young women, using them as sex slaves, and stoning them to death for not agreeing to follow his beliefs, is sinful as well. But hey, that's just how those "religion of peace" fellas roll. Even the words "Boko Haram" means "Western education is sinful." It does not mean, "Killing non-believers is a bad thing." This may account for the historic sparsity of Nobel prizes in the sciences by followers of this noble religion.

Religious Bomb-making Class Ends With a Bang

Afghanistan: It isn't easy making an Improvised Explosive Device (IED), just ask a Mullah and four other jihadists in his class. Oh wait--you can't. They blew themselves to the Islamic equivalent of smithereens, reports the Khaama Press on April 19th. 
Oh look, a finger

The Ghazni mosque lost five of its finest militant jihadists but no innocent lives were taken in the gross and fortunate stupidity. They rest in pieces.

According to the Deputy provincial governor, Mohammad (what a surprise to have that name) Ali Ahmadi, the badahbah-badahboom took place on Saturday morning in the western part of Ghazni City. Citizens claimed that their caves shook and rattled, making it difficult to chase after their wives in order to beat them for something.

The Taliban leader, Mullah Sadiq, has now joined his brothers in the Islamic brothel they call "Paradise." He now awaits his standard 72 brown-eyed virgins and blue-skin boys for an eternity of fun and frolic. Mullah Sadiq leaves behind two arms, two legs, and a singed testicle. His head could not be found.

Back in March, seven jihadists were killed while making their own IED inside a mosque in Deh Yak district. Mosques seem to be a nice secure place to gear up for eternal holy war.

When you think of it, it isn't a Mensa-move to get rid of the NYPD task force that infiltrates mosques and other Islamic war rooms in and around the city of New York. But Bill de Blasio will not be attending any Mensa meetings very soon.

I suggest the jihadists revise their IED manual or convert to Christianity. It's more fun hunting for Easter eggs than for your head and missing testicle.

In my latest novel, a New York reporter is taken hostage by terrorists. If POTUS refuses to release 3 Gitmo jihadists, the reporter will die in 24 hours—they will behead him and show it on the Internet. There is only one way out but the clock is ticking . . .

Easter Sunday Brain Flushings

PETA is upset over the White House lawn Easter egg hunt and suggests that Moochelle consider using plastic eggs instead of the ones that hold little baby chicks inside. Even though the little baby chicks are not viable chickens, PETA believes the symbolism is more important than the facts.

Syria's Assad is still in power in spite of Obama's call for his resignation two years ago, and in spite of his predictions that he will be gone soon. Now it looks like Assad has won and Obama is weak. Ya think?

Peter King (R-NY) and secret financial supporter of Ireland's IRA, may want a run at the 2016 election. King, a graduate of Notre Dame, actually sounds like he attended a community college and dropped out. But that doesn't mean he's not sharp. One thing I like about him is his approach to terrorism. He actually believes it exists and it's inspired by Islamic ideology. Good for him. Will he make a good president? I think we'll never know.

More bodies have been found in the South Korean ship disaster. Nothing is sadder than kids dying and this is a terribly sad story. Over 50 bodies have already been found, but there are still hundreds missing. At least the captain and crew made it off safely. (That's sarcasm.)

And the Pulitzer goes to . . . the Washington Post and Guardian for the Ed Snowden story. It doesn't matter that these papers divulged sensitive secret intelligence that should prove very useful to our enemies, the important part is that they won the most coveted prize in journalism. I can see Josef Pulitzer smiling in his grave as I write this.

Jews in Mariupol, Ukraine have been told to register their personal information or risk being deported. Neither the Russians nor Ukrainians are taking credit for this, but I hope it is as disturbing to you as it is to me. With Russia invading Crimea, there are nostalgic chills of 1939 all over again. To tell a group of citizens that based upon their religion, they must reveal personal data or be kicked out of the country, is unconscionable.

Chelsea Clinton is pregnant. She is expecting her little leftist to bolster grandma's popularity even more for the 2016 presidential election.

Harry Reid called the Bundy Ranch supporters "terrorists." Ibrahim Hooper, of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) commended Reid, "Now we finally know who the real terrorists are, and they don't shout "Allahu Akbar." Harry Reid has done more to help the Islamic cause than any other American.

At least 3 people are dead in a shoot-out at a checkpoint in eastern Ukraine. The Russians are blaming the Ukrainians and vice versa for breaking the truce. Ukrainians claim the pro-Russian separatists are being controlled by Moscow and it looks like they're correct. I have no doubts that the Russians will plod on with their invasion of Ukraine and Obama will continue to condemn Russia with the promise that he will continue to condemn them with words. My question is: will the Russians eventually claim that they have to go into Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, New York, to protect the Russians from American oppression?

Happy Easter Sunday.
