What did Gordon Brown say that surprised you

I am quite amused at the reaction of those who were surprised over the comments of Brown and even Obama about God and guns. The truth is those on the left with rare exception are self righteous and arrogant. Those moments are reflective of how they think.

We see these moments on this blog when the bombastic Duck reveals some narrow minded bigotry aimed at those who enjoy Metal music, popular films like Smokey and the Bandit and enjoy Renoir.
Sorry, but I would rather look at Renoir than go abroad to look at doodling in Saudi Arabia.

Those on the left live a lie that they are reflective of the people. In reality they think those who work for a living and do not go to cocktail parties need their betters to think for them.

Lets do a simple man of the people bit

1) What beverage of choice is with your dinner

A) A Beer B) Kool Aide C) Soda/ Seltzer D) The appropriate Wine E) Bottled Water

2) Can you name the starters on your local baseball, football and Basketball Team

3) Do you consider Cirque de Solelil entertainment?

4) Do you think taxing gas, soda, beer and cigarettes is an appropriate societal function.

5) Do you think tax payer money should go to the arts?

6) Is immigration a right or a privilege?

7) Is your car older than three years old and do you take public transportation?

8) Should Unions stick to workplace issues?

9) Is consumer choice a bad thing?

10) When people disagree with you are they incapable of knowing what is best for them.

1) I have a diet soda with my meals. Lately I am into Seltzer or diet Ginger ale. If you are drinking Kool Aide you either have a lot of kids or are stretching the food budget. Beware of Marxists serving Kool Aide. Jim Jones is a role model to many far left types.

2) Yes. I am familiar with the players on my local sports teams.

3) This is probably a far left substitute for water boarding. Extra credit for anyone who has absolutely no idea what Cirque de Soleil is.

4) Regressive taxation is an abomination and an assault on working people devised by lefties who
are obnoxious. Don't tell a woman what to do with her body if she wants to have an abortion, but tax the crap out of her is she wants a beer and a smoke.

5) Only for serious artist exhibitions at Museums. The Chardin or Renoir exhibits are fine, but narco artists for Hugo or Pseudostine are not.

6) Immigration policy is determined by the American people.

7) Yes and yes.

8) Yes especially in a bad economy.

9) No I am happy with 200 varieties of chips. I had a rough time finding dried fruit at the sundry
shop and had to settle for a small bag of cashews.

10) No. This thought is arrogant Statism and typical of Marxist morons.

1. Varies among water, beer and wine.

2. Baseball, yes of course.
Basketball, pretty much. Football, no.
You forgot hockey, yes.

3. Yes it s certainly entertaining.

4. Gas tax was intended as a use tax and can be argued to have sound intent. Beer, no. Soda, no although I wish people would drink it less. Cigarettes, I'm on the fence.

5. I believe it is critical to have a sound arts climate and the market itself will not provide it. Funding is important.

6. A nation is obligated to determine who i a citizen. Immigration is a legal privilege.

7. Older than three years and I ride the subway quite a bit.

8. Define "workplace issues".

9. It can be illusory and nothing more than a scam to generate more consumption. It is certainly not an unmitigated blessing.

10. People often don't know what's best long term and you need a healthy discussion to make the determination. Glenn Beck is NOT healthy. In fact rabies radio is a very serious national disease.

3) Is an abomination. The best answer
is what is .

4) Lets discuss why it is okay to tax gas. Rural people frequently drive 30 miles or more to work and sometimes operate farm equipment. Taxing gas has an adverse impact on the rural poor.

To a certain extent in certain areas 4 wheel drive is needed.

8) Workplace safety, following the appropriate regulations and protecting the legal rights of its members.

Beak, you seem to be looking for the perfectly fair tax. Good freakin' luck.

Now get some new material before people start thinking your as shallow as your old buddy Yeagley.

1. Depends on what the meal is. Coca-Cola in addition to tasting good happens to be a great digestive aid as well, however it should not be overdone. I also drink tea or lemonade, sometime Kool-aid, or other sodas, depending on the meal. I almost never drink alcoholic beverages, so very rarely drink them with meals. When I do, its beer. Milk rarely and in moderation.

2. No, not as a general rule, nor basically do I care.

3. Yes, and I think they are good at what they do. I wouldn't pay money to see them, but I have seen them twice on television. The first time I thought they were great, the second time I was like WTF? It just depends on what the performance is at any given time I guess. There is no denying their skill.

4. I think its appropriate for states to tax those things if they wish, not the federal government. I could have lived with the cigarette tax implemented in the nineties during the Clinton years, but they just can't leave well enough alone. That's just the problem.

5. I'm fine with the states doing it if they wish to do so, not the federal government, and provided what is funded is reflective of the people of the state and their culture. But that's for the people of the state in question to decide, as with number 4.

6. It's a privilege, and it should come with a set of hard and fast conditions. Such as learn English (or at least make sure your children attend school and learn it), loyalty to the country and especially the constitution.

7. Yes, and sometimes.

8. Yes, otherwise they should be disbanded. A lot of so-called union "leaders" need a stint at Leavenworth.

9. No

10. Yes. All you have to do is listen to them and you can tell that in no uncertain terms. A clue-when you hear somebody raging about Bus$Hitler, you are not dealing with an original thinker.

1) What beverage of choice is with your dinner

Depends on the meal. Usually I'm drinking Mountain Dew, but occasionally I'll have a beer or a glass of wine.

2) Can you name the starters on your local baseball, football and Basketball Team

Here in St. Louis the baseball queers rave about poo-holes. There's something of a controversy with the Rams wasting their #1 NFL draft pick on a quarterback. We'll see.

3) Do you consider Cirque de Solelil entertainment?

Yes!

4) Do you think taxing gas, soda, beer and cigarettes is an appropriate societal function.

No. Taxes are for raising revenue, not punishing behaviors.

5) Do you think tax payer money should go to the arts?

No.

6) Is immigration a right or a privilege?

Neither.

7) Is your car older than three years old and do you take public transportation?

My car is 15 years old. I do not use public transportation. It pisses me off enough to get stuck in traffic behind a 60-seater transit bus with only 2 passengers on it.

8) Should Unions stick to workplace issues?

Unions should be destroyed and organizers of the same should be stoned to death.

9) Is consumer choice a bad thing?

Never.

10) When people disagree with you are they incapable of knowing what is best for them.

Most disagreements stem from people presuming to know what's best for me. I want the government to @#$@ off. Most people who disagree with me want the government to do other things.
