Psychologists use the term “projection” to describe the act of projecting your own feelings, values and foibles on someone or something. There’s truth in this. Hit yourself on the thumb with a hammer and you might say,“Stupid hammer,” or something saltier, depending on proximity of spectators.
On a policy level, liberalism projects its own insecurities, bad habits and lust for power on its opponents. We all do, to some extent. As the Bible says,“there is no one good; no, not one.” But the Left has made it an art form.
At Tea Party rallies in 2009, participants left parks cleaner than they found them and gave police no problems, in stark contrast to rampant criminality at the leftist Occupy rallies. Liberal media vilified Tea Partiers while applauding the passionate “activism” of the Occupy crowd.
Some Tea Party participants at town hall meetings grew animated over Obamacare, prompting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to call them “un-American.” Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) branded Tea Party members “evil mongers.” Mr. Reid now rants madly almost daily about the “billionaire Koch brothers” even as he welcomes George Soros’ largesse for leftist causes.
When liberals are merely eccentric, they’re curiosities. But when they acquire power, they can run over people by the millions while giving themselves a “high five”– for good intentions.
This is a brain on crack!

Tea Party urges Chris McDaniel to run as write-in after black Democrats ‘steal’ primary
Ironically, voting records show McDaniel crossed party lines in 2003 to vote in the Democratic primary.
McDaniel initially denied doing so, but a spokesman later conceded the candidate had in order to “have a choice in local competitive races.”
Ah probably just an honest mistake.

Let's put Nobraina's lies to rest for good:

Bush announces $17.4 billion auto bailout

President George W. Bush stepped in Friday to keep America's auto industry afloat, announcing a $17.4 billion bailout for GM and Chrysler, with the terms of the loans requiring that the firms radically restructure and show they can become profitable soon.

"If we were to allow the free market to take its course now, it would almost certainly lead to disorderly bankruptcy," Bush said at the White House, in remarks carried live by the national broadcast networks. "In the midst of a financial crisis and a recession, allowing the U.S. auto industry to collapse is not a responsible course of action. The question is how we can best give it a chance to succeed."

Bush said that "bankruptcy now would lead to a disorderly liquidation of American auto companies."

"My economic advisers believe that such a collapse would deal an unacceptably painful blow to hardworking Americans far beyond the auto industry. It would worsen a weak job market and exacerbate the financial crisis," he said. "It could send our suffering economy into a deeper and longer recession."

The money will come from the Wall Street bailout passed by Congress, a reversal for the White House. President-elect Barack Obama and Democrats had long advocated that course, and Bush had resisted it.

They think we're stupid because they know they can get away with anything.

"Power corrupts...absolute power corrupts absolutely."

From the president down to the Attorney General to the IRS to the State Department to the Senate Majority Leader to the race-baiting Congressional Democrats to the mainstream media - absolute power has never corrupted more absolutely in our history.

Unless more of us wise up, they will continue to get away with it. Corruption feeds on apathy and ignorance - and this arrogant administration knows the cupboard is full enough.

My platoon's medic was Mormon and a conscientious objector who was in disbelief that he would end up up serving in the field as a medic in an Infantry company.
He had hoped for a noncombat role.
He was a very good, brave medic and never did carry a weapon but would hump ammo when asked to.

This from a person who managed to leave out the million a month dropping out of the workforce
I love how a good jobs reports drives the feeble minded right into a frenzy seeking out a stat that appears to be negative.

Either its citing the U6 - after all, it's a bigger number.

Now the popular dodge is the labor participation rate. " OMG OMG OMG the participation rate is dropping OMG OMG OMG.

Ignoring that it has been dropping since the mid 90's. Also ignoring that demographics play a role as baby boomers retire. Younger people opt to stay in school until the job market improves more. Ignoring how the Bush recession drove people into retirement. And as the Bush recession killed the job market,. more disabled people filed as their jobs were lost.

So, how did Bush grow the participation rate - I mean certainly he must have? You whiners keep telling us how great the economy was under Bush.

The empire struck back and Teabags lost all elections yesterday.

Other than taking Cantor down, the Teabaggers failed spectacularly this primary cycle.

Illegal dumping by EPA employees?

Environmental Protection Agency workers have done some odd things recently.

Contractors built secret man caves in an EPA warehouse, an employee pretended to work for the CIA to get unlimited vacations and one worker even spent most of his time on the clock looking at pornography.

It appears, however, that a regional office has reached a new low: Management for Region 8 in Denver, Colo., wrote an email earlier this year to all staff in the area pleading with them to stop inappropriate bathroom behavior, including defecating in the hallway.
