I feel for anyone in real distress and there are real problems in the northeast—mainly New York City—in this global warming-induced blizzard.
But it’s hard not to chuckle when the people who live in a nanny state threaten to kill the nanny when things go wrong. Yes, despite the trillions spent on the global warming hoax and other enviro-bovine droppings idiocy, the Left has failed to bring Mother Nature to heel.
Thus, New Yorkers are enraged and researchers and experts, as always, are “surprised.”
First, if you live in New York or any major population American rat maze, you’ve made your pact with the Devil…. grab yer big boy pants and deal with it.
Meanwhile call someone in Montana, Minnesota or North Dakota and tell them how hard you have it.
New Yorkers this week are the Katrina “victims” of yesteryear.
“Haaaalp, I’ve fallen and I cain’t get up.!!!!”
Sounds like a personal problem… here’s a dime, call the Chaplain.
Big city dwellers allowed a massive government to control them and must reap the care and consideration of a faceless, bureaucratic colossus which intersects every aspect of their lives and, then they’re shocked when it fails time and time again…. to provide even the minimum.
This is a New Yorker (Los Angelino, Denverite, Austinidiot):
“I called 911 and they didn’t come, but at least I don’t have an evil gun in my rat-infested apartment… I might accidentally discharge it and hurt someone.”
Thus, the observable lesson in all this has become my mantra: “I hate liberals because they will eventually get me killed.”
Let us take the case of poor Barbara Lynch, just one of the unfortunately residents of California:
An Encinitas woman was still waiting for permission to begin shoring up a cliff that runs along her backyard even thought her property is sloughing off into the pacific..
Barbara Lynch must ask the Coastal Commission for permission to fix the bluff that runs along the back of her home which collapsed on Friday morning.
Government drones have said the bluff is part of Lynch's property, and she is required to get permission from the Coastal Commission before doing any work……. but Lynch also has to get a permit from the city to get access to her property from the beach.
She’s tried for 10 years without success.
Come the right storm and maximum erosion… goodbye Barb; great being a Californian, wasn’t it?
Yesterday Dennis Prager had the spot-on analogy for the difference between conservatives and leftists… the zoo.
Given the choice of trading freedom for safety and security, the left will choose government-controlled security of their lives every time; conservatives, Real Americans, will always choose freedom and its inherent risks and dangers.
Yet leftists do not practice what they preach… while they want zoo animals to be “free”, they want you to be forced into lines, profiled, frisked, x-rayed, searched, sexually fondled, harassed and sometimes detained and or jailed…in the name of “safety and security”.
Stop you from smoking on your own property,
The more deluded and egocentric leftists become “activists” who are “catalysts” for change… sound familiar? They want you under the government ‘s thumb, but not themselves.
They demand you send your kid to public schools full of violence, sex, drugs and incompetence… but their kids are attending the New Jersey Meriwether Institutive for Small, Wealthy Spawn.
They insist you drive a tin box with a sewing machine motor while they drive around in Subs and Escalades, Gulf G-5s and of course AF One or Pelosi One; while you pry what’s left of your kid out of the wreck, they tout “saving” the environment with federal “café” standards which require 28.7 mpg. So what if it means smaller, less crash-resistant, less powerful vehicles?
Only you peons will die.
The statists have security and or concealed weapons permits, but use every ounce of government power to keep you from protecting your family with a firearm.
Yes, liberalism can and will kill you.
You earn all the money, but they (after they and their union pals and cronies take their cut) give half of it away to the dregs of society who live virtually tax and cost-free in Nannyland.
They don’t pay taxes, yet get “tax refunds”; you pay your damned taxes or go to prison… while they park their yacht in another state to avoid their fair share, or they’ll just steal from you outright like half the black members of congress have a penchant to do.
…. and cry racism when exposed.
In Real America (most places under 150,000) we are willing and able to carry concealed handguns and be prepared to take some sub-human’s life, because in the five seconds it takes to read this, calling for help from some branch of government is no answer—if you want to live.
In Real America, conservatives desperately want the federal government to be just a distant threat—caught up in interstate highways and the military; but leftists what to be overwhelmed by myriad levels of government; they invite and demand the government to control your salt intake, restrict the amount of of trans-fat you choke down… and meanwhile they pay for the cost of your loss or freedom and confinement inside the government nanny-box.
Leftists force child safety seats and air bags on you, unless the child in the child seat in the car seat is too small and then the air bag must be turned off, cause they’ll kill your kid….; that little Catch 22 represents billions of wasted cash and gives the state police yet another pretense to stop you and violate your right to freedom and travel.
Here in Texas, as in all states but New Hampshire, a seat belt violation is upwards of $100; worse, it is a “primary” violation—you can be stopped based solely on the officer’s statement you were sans belt.
Fines are higher if you don’t have children belted.
And speaking of…. “It’s for the children.”
There has never been a more spurious justification for government intrusion into our lives to steal our money and control us.
Case in point: eventually the baby won’t be allowed to sit on your lap for the plane trip to Grandma’s… little Chantiqua will have to be in a FAA-approved infant-flight transport pac (not your flimsy car seat), which means another high-dollar plane ticket . This will force the Obama-caused lower income folks to put everyone in the Family Truckster where the chances of the baby (and everyone else) dying are exponentially greater.
The average fatalities from airline accidents in the world has averaged 714 a year for the last 20 years; 80% of these deaths were international, which results in an average of 142 airline deaths in the U.S. each year.
Meanwhile on the road, there have been 912,000 U.S. auto fatalities since the early 90s.
It’s the rule of unintended consequences, but the Left pays that no heed… it’s all smoke and mirrors, after all it’s for the children. And if there were no swimming pools, child drownings would dwindle to a handful, but the lefties don’t have enough brain power for critical thinking.
Yeah, it’s a zoo out there, and the leftists want you in a cage to make we can all live in a zero-defect, low-risk Utopia…. after all it’s for your own good; all you have to do is give up your freedom.
