Cognitive Dissonance

"Democracy! Bah! When I hear that I reach for my feather boa!" - Allen Ginsberg

What the president wants to do is restrain capitalism through taxation. If you score big, he wants a big piece of the action so he can give what you get to other people.

Now I could be wrong about this, but I think Mr. Obama allows historical grievances — things like slavery, bad treatment for Native Americans and U.S. exploitation of Third World countries — to shape his economic thinking. Rather than seeing the U.S.A. as basically noble, he gives the bad things about America far too much weight, leading to his desire to redistribute wealth, thereby correcting historical grievance.

Mr. Obama is not a communist, he’s not a socialist. He’s a social justice anti-capitalist. That’s what he is.

Bill O’Reilly, giving us a healthy dose of WTF, topped off with a dollop of denial and sprinkles of American Exceptionalism.

Let me summarize this: “Ignore the bad shit, folks, nothing to see here. Reasons. Noble America. Capitalism.” I’d say these things are more than “grievances,” Bill O. And taxes? How ELSE do you suggest we fund the government? Unicorns and smiles don’t pay the bills.


Yes, Bill O. You’re wrong about this.
