They Take Us for Chumps – at Their Own Peril

Last week, a couple of quotes from the left confirm that centuries-old principle:  The left will say ANYTHING to manipulate the minds of the masses and further their agenda.  Amazingly, at the risk of themselves becoming perceived idiots in the court of public opinion,  the left  instead gambles with the chance that American citizens are simpletons, ready to believe anything the left can spew. 

Either Vote for a Tax Hike or Take to the Streets

First, there was California Governor Jerry Brown.  The Los Angeles Times reports this coverage of his State of the State address on January 31st:

“Citing the pro-democracy unrest in Egypt and Tunisia, Gov. Jerry Brown called it ‘unconscionable’ that GOP legislators are vowing to block his attempt to ask voters to extend tax hikes to balance the budget.”  

Then Governor Brown said this:

“When democratic ideals and calls for the right to vote are stirring the imagination of young people in Egypt and Tunisia and other parts of the world, we in California can’t say now is the time to block a vote of the people.”

So, Mr. Governor, pease cite me a single instance in history where the people took to the streets in riotous protest because they wanted that scarce opportunity to vote and give more of their earnings to the state.  Can’t find it anywhere in my history books.

And never mind that the Egyptian riots were begun by an impoverished people who have grown weary from years at the hand of an oppressive dictator.  Nope,  if they could have just voted for the oppression, now that would have made it most conscionable. 

Global Warming Now Comes in Many Varieties:  Cold, Cool, Warm, and Hot

And here from Newsmax, former Vice President Al Gore tell us that the recent record-breaking cold spell we’ve been having is actually due to global warming.  In answer to Bill O’Reilly’s challenge to call Al Gore about our recent cold spell, Gore responded on his website with this:

“As it turns out, the scientific community has been addressing this particular question for some time now and they say that increased heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with what they have been predicting as a consequence of man-made global warming.” ~ Read entire Newsmax article “Gore: Global Warming Causing Record Cold, Snow”  here. ~

So you see America… whether it’s cold, cool, warm, or hot, it’s a global warming problem.  If it’s a weather fluctuation, the planet is at risk and it’s our fault.  Even if temperatures across the nation sit at sub-zero for days on end, man-made global warming is really the source of all weather maladies.  Because Al Gore said that the “scientific community” said so.  

Never mind that our earth was designed for 4 seasons with fluctuating temperatures, and there is not even a stitch of data proving that a single man has figured out how to stop that cycle. 

Who are the Chumps Here?

America is still the greatest, freest nation on earth and is inhabited by some of the most incredible, ingenius and independent-minded citizens in the world.  Yet the left consistently underestimates us.  

Fortunately for freedom, the left’s manipulative blather continues to reveal who the real chumps are.  A recent nationwide Rasmussen poll on the Generic Congressional Ballot favors 45% Republicans to 38% Democrats.  That’s a great lead Republicans have had in the Generic Congressional Ballot since June 2009, and an inevitable result of powerful chumps talking down to the greatest people I know. 

My advice to the left:  Just keep on talkin’.
