Resolutions

about Clay Bennett...

The son of a career army officer, Bennett led a nomadic life, attending ten different schools before graduating in 1980 from the University of North Alabama with degrees in Art and History. After brief stints as a staff artist at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Fayetteville (NC) Times, he went on to serve as the editorial cartoonist for the St. Petersburg Times (1981-1994) and The Christian Science Monitor (1997-2007), before joining the staff of the ...

New Year’s resolutions usually involve matters for which the individual making the resolution is personally responsible. They involve utilizing one’s own resources to bring about needed personal changes. The Intern, on the other hand, is a public official setting policy in one branch of a three-branched democracy. Well, there’s simply no analogy. This past year, Clay had exactly one clever, thought-provoking cartoon, and his resolve to not squeak out a second one at the 11th hour remains steadfast.

Neocon - Criminally insane spenders that believe in killing brown people for the new world order. Huge Orwellian government, unfathomable amounts of spending, bomb tens of thousands of people to death to rearrange the globe. Take the worst aspects of the liberal and conservative positions and combine them into one and you would have a NeoCon.

Neocons are the greatest threat to life, liberty and property this country has ever known.

The Neocon Manifest

  1. We are a small group of politicians coming from as early as the Ford administration up to the GWB administration.

  2. We are very good at promoting the false pretense about believing in smaller government. In reality, we believe in big spending and tax cuts for their wealthy political and business friends, hence deficit spending.

  3. We fake being social conservatives, although true social conservatives believe they really care about social issues. Neocons distract the public by acting like they really care about social issues like gay marriage, abortion, and flag burning. Meanwhile they are busy conducting wars and stifling your freedom.

  4. We believe in costly wars and creating boogeymen to try and make you think only they can keep you safe while they restrict your freedoms to "protect you". This is their signature issue, to help keep them in power.

  5. We actually despise any types of small government advocates, such as Barry Goldwater, traditional Republcans, conservatives who believe in living and let living, and of course, libertarians.

Our government is the greatest threat to our life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

The following famous quote is attributed to Alexander Fraser Tytler:

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.

Here is a very good article everyone should read.

This statement can apply to many in both parties. They will both attack with a vengeance any libertarian that attracts attention. They hate the idea of a change to the fair tax proposals in both houses. The basic premise is tax spending instead of earnings with a rebate to all regardless of income which protects those in the lower income levels.

rick1, I first saw your quote supposedly attributable to Tytler several years ago. It is an interesting statement, but it was not made by Tytler.

http://www.snopes.com/politics/ballot/athenian.asp

There is no suggestion that Tytler or anyone else performed any studies to support the conclusions, in any event. I am sure there are some people, nonetheless, who claim the proposition to be accurate.

yddem said...

I did not always agree with Barry Goldwater, but I respected him - and he expressed himself so very well at times:

You don't have to be straight to be in the military; you just have to be able to shoot straight.

I think every good Christian ought to kick Falwell right in the ass.

I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice! And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.

Where is the politician who has not promised to fight to the death for lower taxes- and who has not proceeded to vote for the very spending projects that make tax cuts impossible?

It's a great country, where anybody can grow up to be president... except me.

yddem, you are correct about the quote not being verified as coming from Tytler.

The following is from: http://www.actionamerica.org/fun/tytler.shtml

Regardless of the quote's origin, it is interesting to note how accurate it details the past and how much further we have progressed along that predicted line, since it first appeared in modern recorded history, in 1950.

We urge you not to be concerned with the authorship of this quote, but to focus upon the truth that is in the words. I believe that we can stop this "Fatal Sequence", but not the way we are going.

Obama proposes these things that he knows the republicans have always been against and then claims obstructionism.

Harry Reid has 28 bills from the house republicans hidden under his desk and won't even bring them up for a vote. And then claims republicans don't "offer alternatives". Major lie.

The republicans are always chided for not "compromising" with democrats. Why in the hell would anyone compromise their core beliefs and values? The democrats NEVER compromise. When Obama or any democrat can't get everything they want, they spew piss and vinegar at their opponents and pass executive orders circumventing the constitutional process (illegally).

Where is the compromise from the democrats? On ANYTHING?

Toes, Harry Reid doesn't give a damn about helping a child with cancer, why would he care about bringing bills up for a vote?

HARRY REID: Listen, Sen. Durbin explained that very well, and he did it here, did it on the floor earlier, as did Sen. Schumer. What right did they have to pick and choose what part of government is going to be funded? It’s obvious what’s going on here. You talk about reckless and irresponsible. Wow. What this is all about is Obamacare. They are obsessed. I don’t know what other word I can use. They’re obsessed with this Obamacare. It’s working now and it will continue to work and people will love it more than they do now by far. So they have no right to pick and choose.

DANA BASH: But if you can help one child who has cancer, why wouldn’t you do it?

REID: Why would we want to do that? I have 1,100 people at Nellis Air Force base that are sitting home. They have a few problems of their own. This is — to have someone of your intelligence to suggest such a thing maybe means you’re irresponsible and reckless –

Obama is killing job growth with regulations major environmental regulations and in fact delayed these regulations until after the 2012 election knowing how devastating they will be to the economy. This will lead to higher unemployment and more dependence on the government and the democrats will use scare tactics saying their opponent will take away all of the entitlements unless the vote democrat.

This is a never ending cycle and we will fail.

As I said, I don't remember any such claims (and I remember '64 very well), but I would certainly bow to you if you cited authority to correct my faulty memory.

BTW, Barry's own comments about Vietnam were worse than anything I recall the Dems saying about him. There was "Daisy" of course, but that was about the end of the world, not Vietnam, and it was shown only once. I did not see it until years later.

It is true that most, but not all, dems want gun control, but gun control does not "strip all law abiding citizens of their right to own firearms" which was your earlier claim.

It is true that most dems and some repubs want a higher federal minimum wage (some states are already higher), but your earlier claim was $15/hr. which most do not support.

True for dems and repubs. Reagan was a huge fan of amnesty for illegal aliens.

At the end of 1959 there were 760 U.S. troops training South Vietnamese troops. So Ike did indeed dabble in Vietnam.

"I think liberals still cringe that a democrat got America in Vietnam, and a republican got America out of it." - TOES

Most libs freely admit that LBJ was shameful in the way he escalated the war, especially in his deceit and outright lies about the Gulf of Tonkin incident.

Being liberal does not mean that we invariably stand with the Democratic Party. In fact, most Dems today are not nearly as liberal as you RWNJs make them out to be. Thanks to the extremism of the teabaggers and neo-cons the right has shifted so FAR to the right that the new "middle" that has been created is itself right-wing, which comprises the "neo-liberals" that we have today. Only Dems like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and a scant few others could be considered true liberals. It's just that you righties today have gone completely batsh!t crazy and cannot see, or will not allow yourselves to see, how far to the right our government has shifted.

PT, what I dislike is the claim that I "think" something that I do not. I never said Daisy was not a campaign ad. In fact, I made specific reference to Daisy. Your problem is that you make claim to something for which you cannot provide any evidence whatsoever. For some reason, probably because you wanted to assail the dems in 1964 (for what purpose?), you made up a claim that the dems said Goldwater would send Marines to Vietnam. I called you on it, pointed out that Goldwater said worse things than the dems did about what he would do in Vietnam, and brought your attention to Daisy and said "that was about the end of the world." You really don't get it, do you?

Folks, Harry Truman was the first President to send troops into Vietnam. In fact, the first American serviceman killed in Vietnam occurred on September 26, 1945.

Eisenhower sent in military advisors in 1953, along with supply shipments.

If one desires to get technical, anyone who wears a uniform is trained for military combat. So anyone sent over there, no matter whether they intended to engage in battle or not, could be considered a soldier and I'm sure each and every one of them were armed or were protected by armed soldiers.

Man, there is NOTHING moderate or independent about you. If you were truly an independent you would agree with the liberal point of view at least ONCE in a while, but you seem to take great delight in sniping at liberals at every turn. You despise liberals and liberalism in all its forms and you more often than not take a strong stance with the teabaggers.

You know, if liberals practiced what they preached, we'd hear alot more stories about how they've taken it upon themselves to help the poor/homeless/poverty stricken.

You should be taking these destitute people into your homes and feeding them and clothing them and personally getting them to better themselves.

Or does it just make you feel good about yourselves to tax the hell out of every working person to throw money at these people.

Harming one to help another doesn't do jack. Two wrongs don't make a right.

Three ominous signs for Democrats heading into the 2014 midterm year.

"A trio of findings spells bad news for Democrats in a new CNN/ORC International poll released Thursday: The generic ballot test has broken sharply toward Republicans, voter enthusiasm for Democrats is lower than it is on the GOP side, and President Obama is shaping up as an albatross for candidates who support him."

"Republicans have opened up a 49 to 44 percent lead over Democrats on the question of which party’s candidate for Congress voters would choose in their district. That’s a sharp reversal from October, when Democrats led Republicans 50 percent to 42 percent."
