Think conservatives have troubles? Look at the left.

Conservatives have their problems these days, but these issues are actually mild compared to the really big problem at the core of liberal statism. Conservatives need to empathize, readjust some applications of conservatism and talk like regular people; liberalism however is flawed at its very core.

David Brooks puts it as succinctly as anyone when he writes that “the entire Democratic governing vision, from President Obama on down, is based on the notion that we can have a growing welfare state and pay for it by taxing the top 2 percent.” This is impossible, as he notes, since there are not enough rich people to pay for all of that and you wind up with negative “long-term changes in social norms, behavior and growth.” The alternative is to raise taxes on everyone, which makes liberalism more honest but politically unfeasible.

a portrait of Obama's future America as DEPENDISTAN:

He wiped the front counter and smoothed the edges of a sign posted near his register.“Yes! We take Food Stamps, SNAP, EBT!”

“Today, we fill the store up with everything,” he said.“Tomorrow, we sell it all.”

At precisely one second after midnight, on March 1, Woonsocket would experience its monthly financial windfall — nearly $2 million from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps. Federal money would be electronically transferred to the broke residents of a nearly bankrupt town, where it would flow first into grocery stores and then on to food companies, employees and banks, beginning the monthly cycle that has helped Woonsocket survive.

The “economy”(unemployment, shuttered factories, debt) is permanent, but the economic cycle is monthly, thanks to “Uncle Sam Day”:

The 1st is always circled on the office calendar at International Meat Market, where customers refer to the day in the familiar slang of a holiday. It is Check Day. Milk Day. Pay Day. Mother’s Day.

“Uncle Sam Day,” Pichardo said now, late on Feb. 28, as he watched new merchandise roll off the trucks. Out came 40 cases of Ramen Noodles. Out came 230 pounds of ground beef and 180 gallons of orange juice.

SNAP enrollment in Rhode Island had been rising for six years, up from 73,000 people to nearly 180,000, and now three-quarters of purchases at International Meat Market are paid for with Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards.

Government money had in effect funded the truckloads of food at Pichardo’s dock .&#8201;.&#8201;. and the three part-time employees he had hired to unload it .&#8201;.&#8201;. and the walk-in freezer he had installed to store surplus product .&#8201;.&#8201;. and the electric bills he paid to run that freezer, at nearly $2,000 each month.

Pichardo’s profits from SNAP had also helped pay for International Meat Market itself, a 10-aisle store in a yellow building that he had bought and refurbished in 2010, when the rise in government spending persuaded him to expand out of a smaller market down the block.

That old Democratic Depression anthem is too idealistic for such a world. But, for the new normal,“Snappy Days Are Here Again”:

Grocery store chains had started discount spinoffs. Farmers markets had incentivized SNAP shopping by rewarding customers with $2 extra for every $5 of government money spent.

Restaurants, long forbidden from accepting SNAP, had begun a major lobbying campaign in Washington, and now a handful of Subways in Rhode Island were accepting the benefit as part of a pilot program.

And then what? Where does this story end? What happens to change the trajectory of these lives?'

Uday had the wolf bound and gagged then he stuffed raisins and Mentos up his ass until his eyes bulged and then he made the wolf drink a giant bottle of Diet Coke! "BOOM" went the big bad wolf. Then Usay and Uday gathered up all the pieces and they ass-fucked the big bad wolf, spun him around, and then ass-fucked him again. The wolf's family stood helplessly by and wrung their paws, distraught that there was nothing they could do to help their fine and upstanding, if hairy, son.

A decade after the US-led invasion of Iraq, years of violence and disdain for the country's current political class fuel nostalgia for Saddam Hussein -- the man the foreign troops fought to oust.
Though accusations of ties to Saddam and his regime are used to tar politicians in Baghdad, residents of his hometown Tikrit express fondness for a man who, though responsible for ordering the deaths of countless Iraqis, is remembered for having imposed stability, which has long been missing.
"I will remain proud, and remember Saddam," said Khaled Jamal, a watch-seller in Tikrit. "Our country has not changed or developed in the past 10 years."
Along with his frustration over the slow pace of rebuilding -- many Iraqis, not just in Tikrit, suffer from poor provision of basic services and high unemployment -- Jamal also voiced another commonly-cited frustration: the apparent rise in sectarianism since Saddam's fall.
"There was no sectarianism, no Sunni and Shiite," Jamal said.
"But now, that is the first question you hear when you meet someone," he added, referring to queries over a person's province of origin, often used to find out their religious background.

Do you think these females yearn for the return of saddam?

"Once near a Nineveh hotel Uday saw a pretty young girl no older than fifteen. He found her attractive and had her kidnapped. Uday raped the girl who lay silently and
then let her go, bruised and bleeding to stumble back to the hotel to find her parents.

“It turns out the girl had been deaf since birth,” remembers Latif.“She tried desperately to communicate what had happened to guests in the hotel lobby, but couldn’t make her hysterical, silent crying be understood.”

When Uday’s was informed he commanded his bodyguards to grab her again so she wouldn’t make trouble for him. They took her to the nearby forest and gang raped her before killing her and burying the body".

Poll: Paul Ryan Rating Has Dropped Significantly Post-Election

"Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is viewed favorably by just 35 percent of American voters, according to a Rasmussen poll released Monday. Fifty-four percent view him unfavorably.

A bare 52 percent majority of GOP voters gave Ryan positive marks, down from 83 percent when he was selected as the Republicans' vice presidential nominee in August 2012.

According to Rasmussen, that puts Ryan far behind Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) in terms of popularity within his own party. Ryan also finished a distant fifth in this past weekend's Conservative Political Action Conference straw poll, taking 6 percent of the vote.

HuffPost Pollster's average, which combines all publicly available polls, shows a marked drop in Ryan's image since the election, when his rating was a slim net positive."

Yep, good old Ammmuuuurrrican football players, think it's okay to have their way with a girl because she wore a skimpy top and shorts and was drunk. Clean up your own backyard first dummy
brutal rapist with an obsession for beautiful women.”

Every day Uday Hussein and his bodyguards drove around the university and the girls’ schools until the president's son saw a girl he fancied. He would stop her and
ask her to spend the night with him. If she refused his bodyguards would grab her and bring her back to the palace.

There Uday would rape the girl. If she resisted, after he was done, he would give her to the whole team of bodyguards. If she was really a lot of trouble, like one architectural student named Nahle Sabet who had the nerve to publicly reject him, Uday would throw her naked to his pack of wild dogs which ripped her to pieces while he watched, drinking champagne and laughing.

No woman was safe. One day Uday saw two newlyweds walking hand in hand. He wanted the woman and his bodyguards grabbed the couple.

Saad Abd al-Razzek Nihaya was an Iraqi army officer decorated for bravery in the Iran-Iraq War but that didn’t help him or his new wife.

Uday took the girl to a hotel suite. She pleaded with him not to defile her - she had only been married yesterday. Uday beat her until she was bloody then raped her."

Tea Partier On Lead Up To Iraq War:‘We Have To Trust Our Leaders’
Months after suggesting that President Barack Obama "doesn't love America the way we do," a prominent tea party leader on Tuesday made a case for placing trust in the commander-in-chief during a discussion about the intelligence failures that lead to the Iraq War.
Amy Kremer, chairwoman of the Tea Party Express, told CNN that former President George W. Bush wasn't the only elected official making a case for the 2003 U.S.-led invasion and said that the citizenry can "never have enough intelligence." But ultimately, Kremer argued, the American people have no choice but to show some faith in the president.
"The American people, I don't think, have any alternative but to believe our president. That's why he's been elected," Kremer said. "And I certainly hope we never go down this road ever again because you never wanna lose any lives and there's always unintended consequences."

That Kremer gal is a real piece of work__reminds me of real Carol Orlando.
