The experiment that said “the bigger the state, the more just the society” clearly failed. There is no point pretending that it didn’t. - Tony Blair
- It's the Sun, stupid!
- Dems put bad stuff on hold til 2012
- Mexican right of return
Russ Steele at NC Media Watch reports here the latest real news on climate change – ‘it’s the sun, stupid.’ The AGW true believers are having to run around in ever tightening circles as they try to paper over every piece of new data that belies their political theory of manmade global disaster. Every day it is more apparent that the only misery man is yet able to afflict on fellow man is through bad politics. It was ever thus.
The perversion of the progressives is nowhere more visible than in the hiatus that the Obama administration is taking from its own agenda. All those social and stimulus programs that were designed and passed by the Democrats to get the country back on its economic track have proven to do exactly the opposite. And the social(ist) engineers in Washington know it in spades. With the election coming up and the economy on its butt (second cheek is hitting the ground now), these hypocritical leftwingers are pulling back the enforcement of literally every piece of damaging legislation they have passed. The dirtbags aren’t repealing any of it, only putting it on hold until after 2012 (details here).
That there is no public outcry about any of this will hopefully again explain my ongoing use of Bryan Kaplan’s ‘sheeple’ for a large fraction of America’s electorate. In his Myth of the Rational Voter – Why Democracies Choose Bad Policies Kaplan presented ample evidence of how the democratic process goes awry the more direct democracy we instill at the cost of removing the republican safeguards bequeathed by our Founders.

As these pages have noted for the last several years, the Great Divide (here and here) is not just an apprehension of conservatives who view as hopeless the reunion with progressives. A major force promoting the GD is the latino Reconquista movement (here and search RR with ‘Reconquista’). The lamestream media has successfully subverted any coverage of the progress of Reconquista. Now it has advanced to where it is openly taught in American public schools. As reported in the 20jun11 National Review -
“Mexican-American Studies” in Tucson schools now include “Rodolfo Acuna’s Occupied America, which proposes that the US southwest become a “Chicano nation” and quotes without disapproval Hispanic activist Jose Angel Guiterrez saying that “we have to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him.”
Shhhh, the sheeple are sleeping.
