Poll Results: 63% Of Americans Are Hippies!
Well, you probably saw the "political arts" tag on the header of the blog, so here goes: The editorial below illustrates just how out of touch some people are about what's really going on. For instance; equating the Iraq OCCUPATION with the terrorism that came to America on 9-11. Despite constant attempts to conflate the two issues, There is ABSOLUTELY NO CONNECTION BETWEEN 911 AND IRAQ. Period.
The old crank that wrote the following editorial is so out of it she is still red-baiting and chasing Marxists. I hate to inform her that the State no longer controls the means of production, the means of production controls the State. It's called "Unbridled Super-Capitalism"
If this blue-haired old bat thinks hippies are the only people that reject the Cheney Administration's insane hijacking of the oilfields, then a full 63% of Americans must be hippies:
CNN Poll conducted by Opinion Research Corporation. Nov. 17-19, 2006. N=1,025 adults nationwide:
Do you favor or oppose the US War in Iraq:
33% favor 63% oppose 4% not sure
--Look, the Rat is not anti-military. The Rat has had his share of fights. But the Rat is a free-thinker and will not blindly follow authority over the cliff. People, let's be smart about this. Try Googleing "The Project For A New American Century" and you will find out what these bastards have been up to.
And now; the rant from some Grandma in Lexington:
Hippies still trying to ruin the country
By Jenean Mcbrearty
America won't win another war until the 1960s flower children are pushing up petunias.
Radicalized, the flower children morphed into lefty loonies who now masquerade as social progressives. No matter what they rename themselves, however, their agenda hasn't changed.
They still want utopia, and it wouldn't be worth mentioning except that their naivetŽ has aged into a persistent denial of reality that may have devastating consequences.
For example, consider their continued belief that America's armed forces are neo-Nazi stormtroopers who delight in burning babies to further the aims of imperialistic corporations.
Such nonsense, now treated as legitimate by the left-leaning media, denigrates the patriotic values and sincerity of half the nation. It undermines the war effort, insults the dead and the survivors of battle and their families, and supports the aims of the enemy. Translated into immigration or national defense policy, it is an invitation to the world to destroy our country.
Yet, this Vietnam-era idŽe fixe about the military, despite 40-plus years of proof to the contrary, is understandable when analyzed in the context of the flower children's religious zealotry.
To renounce their military fictions would mean facing bigger, more important truths: Marxism doesn't work. Love is not all you need. Western culture is worth defending because it protects freedom, tolerance and the greatest material good for the greatest number. Government can't solve every problem. The American taxpayer has no obligation to support the rest of the world's exploding population.
Without the military-industrial complex to blame for humanity's ills, the lefty loonies lose their basis for faith in a socialist utopia. Terrorism is tortuous for them only because it forces them to pursue the political goals that will allow them to redistribute America's wealth by pulling the nation together and relying on the hated military for protection.
Oh, the unfairness of irony.
Thus, lefty loonies deny that terrorists have declared war on America, while insisting that we can win the war through negotiation. They seem to believe the terrorists will spare them because they are nice.
(EDIT) ACKKKK! You see what I mean... I had to dump half her rant because it just goes on, and on, and on. Too long for this blog. Her e-mail is listed below if you care to respond--Dojo Rat
