How to Quickly Dismiss Accusations of “Republicans Are Racists and How Can You Be One”

Due to recent events I found myself reading some of the “Lauffington Post”, and “The Daily Pest” blogs to discover far left “Republicans are racists” feeding frenzies. So if you ever find yourself in the middle of a “Republicans are racists” bash fest, or if you are personally accused of being a racist just for your affiliation with the Republican party, here’s something that will take much of the wind out of the leftist sails:

Left Wing Zealots Use Bigoted Propaganda Tactics to Brand Republicans and Conservatives as Racist

WARNING: The arguments in that article are a mental kick to the groin. They will make most peddlers of the “Republicans are racists” notion shut up about it very quickly. But they may get up and subject you to a new barrage of accusations about something else.

Farewell Israel and Obama’s Naive View of the Middle East

I recently rented the documentary film ßFarewell Israel from Netflix. In my opinion it should be required viewing for each and every citizen of the United States, especially Obama voters. So many people, most notably among them Barack Obama, completely misunderstand the underlying reasons for terrorism, Iranian saber rattling, and the Arab-Israeli conflict.

During his campaign for the presidency, Barack Obama stated that Iran does not pose a serious threat to the United States the way the Soviet Union did because it’s tiny in comparison. He also said that we should use our position of strength to listen to Iran and find potential common interests.

This approach is frighteningly naive because it assumes a fanatical religious theocracy that hasn’t quite left the seventh century, holds dear the values of a modern Western democracy, i.e. life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Farewell Israel breaks away from the Western world view to explain the history, ideology, and culture of the Islamic world that has brought us to the conflict we experience today. Once that is understood, it becomes much easier to see why a listen, find common interests, “why can’t we just all get along”, approach will not work. There is simply nothing they (Islamofascists, Muslim terrorists, Iranian Mullahs, Palestinians, etc.) want that the U.S. Israel, or the rest of the Western world can afford to give.

Farewell Israel does a splendid job explaining the above, however at the very end it draws some conclusions that seem a bit lacking. The final conclusion of Farewell Israel is that President Bush played right into the hands of Al-Qaeda, who wanted to ignite a global conflict with the West, by invading Afghanistan and Iraq.

(Before you anti-Bush Obama supporters out there get too excited… Obama would not fare much better because he would invade Afghanistan to chase Bin-Laden remember?)

I would not necessarily dispute that Al-Qaeda wanted the U.S. to provoke the Islamic world, however the documentary does not discuss why a non-reaction, proving once more that the U.S. is a paper tiger, as Bin-Laden once claimed, would be any better.

If you watch the documentary, please come back and express your thoughts in the comments section.

Saved or Created: The Real Voodo Economics

Despite a net job loss of over 2 million since the beginning of 2009, President Barack Obama claims that his policies “saved or created” 150,000 jobs. I can’t help but laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh at this. Oh, wait… and laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh… and laugh and laugh. Okay, out of respect for those who lost their jobs I have to stop laughing!

Here’s why jobs “saved or created” is shameless rhetoric:

1. There’s no way to count the number of jobs “saved or created” by stimulus spending. The way the Obama administration comes up with the 150,000 figure is to basically assume that x amount of government spending creates a y number of jobs and just declare it so.

2. The second reason is related to something I call the Instant Billionaire Formula™. I claim that with the Instant Billionaire Formula™, anyone can become a billionaire, instantly! Here’s how it works… ready? Okay, write yourself a check for one BILLION dollars! And presto, you’re a billionaire! Of course, what I failed to mention to begin with is that applying the Instant Billionaire Formula™ costs a billion dollars (you just wrote yourself a check, remember?), so overall, your net worth really doesn’t change. But if we just look at the positive side of things, then, wow, yes, you just became a billionaire! Similarly, the government can create any number of jobs by taking money from someone and giving it to someone else for say, digging a ditch and filling it back up. But considering government’s propensity for waste, is there any net gain here? How many jobs are lost due to the stimulus spending, which is money that needs to be somehow taken out of the economy before it’s put back in? How productive are the jobs “saved or created” in relation to the jobs “forsaken or destroyed”? These are questions we must answer before we can claim 150,000 were “saved or created” while the net job loss is in the millions.

I’m sure that if President Bush had tried the “saved or created” trick, he would have been ridiculed to no end.
