Armstrong And The Strong Arm Of The Democrats

September 4, 2012 by  

Armstrong And The Strong Arm Of The Democrats
PHOTOS.COM

The other day, a friend and professional colleague evaluated my writing thusly: “You write in two distinct styles, one red meat/broadcast style and the other more thoughtful/literary.” While he prefers the latter to the former, I appreciated the compliment nonetheless. Writers and pundits are not generally as catty as — say — fashion models (and not one of us has the figure to pull off this year’s Roberto Cavalli collection), but we can be a bit slow in offering praise for one another. Call it the spirit of competition.

But my pal actually nailed it; and following some reflection, I realized why. Great achievement greatly inspires me. Great injustice greatly outrages me. And everything in between is just plain funny. Hence, today’s view from outside the asylum.

Astronaut Neil Armstrong has passed away at the age of 82. I know I tend to get a bit effusive when I discuss astronauts, unapologetically. Knowing that he might end up a Neil-sickle on a parabolic orbit between the sun and the Kuiper Belt, riding in a vehicle which the best minds on the planet were fairly certain might work, Armstrong and his cohorts Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins said: “Light her up!” A short while later, Armstrong became the first member of the human species to set foot on another world.

About 110 billion people have lived and died on this pale blue dot. Only 12 have trod the frozen wasteland that orbits our home. Armstrong was the first. Armstrong is often mentioned in the same breath with explorers like Columbus. But Columbus went somewhere where people already lived. And a shipwreck in the Bahamas is a hassle. A shipwreck in the Mare Tranquilium is a death sentence. Armstrong and his compatriots were the first human pioneers to visit a place which humanity is biologically engineered to avoid at all costs. That’s courage. That’s spirit. That’s greatness.

Sir Isaac Newton once remarked: “If I have been able to see farther than others, it is because I stood on the shoulders of giants.” Someday, ages and ages hence, they’ll be saying that about you, Mr. Armstrong. You earned it.

On another note, as interesting as the GOP convention was, the Democrats’ reaction to it has been the show of the decade. I didn’t expect any civility from the left, but they have positively come unglued. Ann Romney is a “corporate wife?” Condi Rice is a “hood ornament?” Mia Long is a “house-n*gger?” I’ll admit: I’m impressed that they managed to work misogyny and racism into one sentence, but it makes the Democrats’ “Republican War on Women” meme seem sillier than Joe Biden attacking Neil Armstrong’s “space cred.”

Also: “Barbara Bush is the ugliest white man I’ve ever seen.” Really, Democrats? Your plan going “Forward.” is to secure the votes of senior citizens by insulting a senior citizen? Because nothing says “old people should vote for me” like suggesting the poster girl for kindly grandmothers looks like a dude.

And then, there are the lunatics at the Democrat Channel. The entire network deliberately refused to cover any speeches made by members of racial minorities. Chris Matthews even decreed that mentioning “Chicago” is racist. Sorry, Chrissie. It’s just that “Murderville, USA,” “The City of Big Body Counts” or “Barack’s Big House of Victims” are all too wordy.

Now that the Democrats have been caught lying about the infamous Janesville, Wis., plant that closed five months after Obama took office, I’d like to offer them some free advice. Stop talking about “fact-checking the Republicans.” Every time you do, you end up getting caught in another lie. Your minions know you’re liars; and they don’t care. Just promise them free stuff and someone to hate, and they’ll vote for you — twice.

In fact, virtually the entire Democratic response to the GOP Convention was marked by entirely predictable liberal slander. Granted, if my guy was half the inept buffoon Barack Obama is, I might consider doing the same. After all, it’s not like Obama can run on accomplishments. Actually, if my guy was half the buffoon Obama is, I’d find a new guy. But I’m not a Democrat. Thank God.

Great achievement greatly inspires me. Thus, I salute Neil Armstrong. Great injustice greatly outrages me; and everything in between is just plain funny. Thus, I give the Democrats the finger and then laugh. I’ll bet Republican convention speaker and all-around tough guy Clint Eastwood would agree.

    Ben, it takes a huge amount of “hot air” to keep the tent erect. Enter the clown cars and clown buses. Take IL for example. The controlling dems have been all over the news here insisting that they really want a bi-partisan solution to the pension problems they have created. Pleeeease! You clowns have had your way with the taxpayer for the past 60 years and just like every other patronage laden marxist regime throughout this land, your thefts have finally been exposed. There’s no other way to put it. You’re just plain “corrupt” in every way. Go ahead mr/mrs patronage worker and your family/friends, keep voting your “handlers” in. Remember this though, the private sector is the group that has to pay for it all!

    Am I better off now than 4 years ago, Hell NO, and I sure don’t see this gang of clowns as the recipe for anyones success except for themselves and their “patronage supporters” and freeloaders.

        Precisely why the Fed must be audited…..or better yet, ELIMINATED!

      • MikeR

        Cheryl: I’m curious, were these loans? If so, were they repaid as agreed? Romney should pledge to audit the Fed if he’s elected. If he does make that pledge, Ron Paul should endorse him.

    • 45caliber

      Warrior:

      The Demo version of a “bi-partisan agreement” is that they want the GOP to recognize and agree that the GOP was to blame for any problems and the Demo version was really the best solution and should get all the glory for it.

      • wandamurline

        And they want the GOP to vote like they tell them to. You see, bipartisan to a Democrap is that you do what I say and we’ll get along fine and I won’t tell everyone you are crashing in on my party and call you the problem. The Democraps have had control of both houses of government since January, 2007…..yes, they are to blame for the economic mess we are in….they were in control…..not Bush. So if Obama and the Democraps want to blame anyone for the mess Obama got when elected, they need to look no further than a mirror and blame themselves and Obama, because he voted for all of this mess when he was a Senator.

    • Old Henry

      Well Said Warrior!!

      You forgot to mention the fact that the idiot voters elected a governor who ran on raising taxes and spending more!

      What part of The Land of Stincoln do you hale from?

      • Warrior

        County of Crook! How else would I recognize the “beast” so well. If you are not from chicago or nearby, chances are, you really are unaware of the severity of epedemic called “progressivism”. Well, then again, if you live in LA or NY you probably do get it!

  • Gea

    Obama will be gone in a landslide, because Americans are waking up to how un-American his Marxist/ Islmist policies are. He will take with him entire democratic party down the drain with his Muslim Brotherhood. Good ridance!

    Then Romney/Ryan will have their work cut for them, from 12 years of mismanagement of both Obama and Bush. The education system needs to stop being run as a factory for hujmans, since children are not widgets and relentness testing does not develop critial minds in humans, kinds of minds that can think independently. We also need to go totally green and make Saudi oil irrelevant in our lives, so that the money going for Islamic terrorism cries up.

    • Norm

      Gea
      For starters the latest averaged polls give Obama the edge in this coming election, especially in electoral votes where it really counts.
      Next if you didn’t like Bush/Cheney you can’t possibly support Romney/Ryan. The best one can decipher from their vague visions of the future is a double dose of Bush-onomics. Massive tax cuts to the rich, endless wars with ever increasing military spending, destruction of Medicare and Social security, and ever increasing deficits are what they’re supporting.

      • 45caliber

        Norm:

        I didnt’ really like Bush/Cheny but I REALLY don’t like Oblama/Biden. So I’m supposed to vote for Oblama because I didn’t care for Bush? Really? That logic is what got Oblama into power in the first place.

      • nnicko

        Get your facts straight Normie. I think you have been sitting @ the barstool in cheers too long. Are you better off than you were 4 years ago ? If you are, than you got more govn’t handouts than before!

        • Gea

          Unlike Bush/Cehney, Romney is an intelligent and competent manager and lawyer who did not hold hands with Saudi king, or bowed to him as Obama did, king, whose subjects committed 9/11 while shoutiung Allahu Akbar. Ryan I met 15 years ago and had long discusssions with him regarding health care and foreign policy (he went to the same unisverity as my daughter and graduated one year before her). He is a brilliant young man, with an intellect similar to Daniel Patric Moynihan who 40 years ago pointed out what is wrong with a direction in which America is going: A dysfuctyional society in which working and free people will be sqeezed from gamers at the Wall street,and CEOs, and people whose life style is to make babies and expect somebody else to feed them and raise them. Those babies when they grow up fill our jails for prophit, or health care clinics, for drug treatment since they are bored with nothing to do.

          I will ALWAYS take Romney/Ryna then BO who is one big phoney baloney peddling Marxism and islamism on US, driving US down the drain of political correctness

        Yes I am better off than I was when the stock market crashed on Oct. 6, 2008, bottoming out on March 2, of 2009. From 6626 the Dow has now grown to over 13,000. Unemployment is high but the trend is definitely positive. The main cause of high unemployment is the private sector outsourcing jobs.
        On an average global outsourced projects involve about 28% that belong to the hardcore IT sector, 11% to finance sector, 15% to sales and marketing and 9% from administrative sector. The remaining 22% belong to many other different sectors such as consumer distress calls, general data segregation jobs, tourism etc. As of 2006, the outsourcing activities accounted for jobs worth $1.2 trillion per annum. Some economists have predicted that by 2015, more than 3.3 million U.S. jobs and $136 billion worth of wages, will be transferred to developing Asian and African economies, due to cheaper labor markets.

    My God what a disgrace, Neil Armstrong is a modern day Christopher Columbus… This administration and the media cannot stand any American achievement.

  • dan

    I agree with Ben …I mean, you just can’t take morons and idiots that seriously.

    Astute observation on education , Gea , but green isn’t all that green when you count the costs.
    Better to apply modern tech to current resources (we have a 200 year supply of natural gas on the North Slope) rather than trying to build up civilization in the Middle East (let them start over
    with 6th century feudal/theocracy…they’ll soon be at each others throats again) and cease
    protecting the world from itself.

    Yes, that liberal media giant, Fox news, had this to say:

    On the other hand, to anyone paying the slightest bit of attention to facts, Ryan’s speech was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech.

    Full article here: http://tinyurl.com/8ug2g2f

    You continue with the same old rhetoric…. that of projection. Accuse the other guy of doing what you are doing. You don’t get that all you are doing is appealing to the fringe element, at the expense of losing the entire middle. A middle that Ron Paul was well on his way to capturing.

    Civility in dialogue you mention the lack of civility, but then embed in your own writing pejorative words such as “buffoon” “give the finger and laugh” “lunatics”. Is that your definition of civility? You decry the lack of civility, and then proceed to tromp all over it yourself.

    To balance out your view, here is a comedic vision of the RNC convention: http://tinyurl.com/8qmuqer

      “Yes, that liberal media giant, Fox news, had this to say…”

      The author of that artcle was written by a liberal extremist, Sally Kohn, who is one of MANY “Fox News contributers,” and she does NOT represent the views of Fox News by any stretch of the immagination. She has been criticized for putting her own spin on things, and for twisting the facts in her OPINION pieces to suit her own purposes. I would trust anything she has to say just about as far as I could throw her…and that ain’t too far!

    Paul Ryan quote:

    “What they are trying to suggest is that I said Barack Obama was responsible for the plant shutdown in Janesville. That is NOT what I was saying, read the speech,” he told NBC’s “Today.” “What I was saying is the president ought to be held to account for his broken promises. AFTER the plant was shut down he said he would lead efforts to RESTORE the plant. It’s still idle.”

    Even Ryan now acknowledges what this article still attempts to perpetuate… the plant’s operations were shut down under Bush’s term.

      Even Ryan now acknowledges what this article still attempts to perpetuate… the plant’s operations were shut down under Bush’s term.

      Show me where Ryan said the plant shut down while Bush was in office. All I see is that the plant shut down and obama promised to get it started back up. A promise he has failed to keep. NOWHERE do you show when the plant shut down.

      • Old Henry

        According to Wikipedia the Janesville plant was substantially idled in December of 2008 and completely shut down in April of 2009.It was GM’s oldest plant having started operations in 1919.

        Show me the part where Obama said “In spite of the fact that you have already decomissioned 95% of it’s operations , when and if I am elected president, I will personally reopen your plant, restore its operations”.

        I rest my case.

  • Norm

    In his acceptance speech, GOP Vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan appeared to suggest that President Obama was responsible for the closing of a GM plant in Ryan’s hometown of Janesville, Wisc.
    Ryan:
    “Right there at that plant, candidate Obama said: ‘I believe that if our government is there to support you … this plant will be here for another hundred years.’ That’s what he said in 2008. Well, as it turned out, that plant didn’t last another year. It is locked up and empty to this day.”
    That’s not true. The plant was closed in December, 2008, before Obama was sworn in.

      Norm, you have the ability in high order to know the art of ” SPINNING” the truth.

    Dear Mr. Crystal. You should go to the White House web site where you will see photograph after photograph of Neil Armstrong. The gallery is entitled: remembering Neil Armstrong. Reaching the moon was a difficult and dangerous feat. Those astronauts were mighty brave men. It also did us a big favor because it showed there is nothing on the moon that we really need and making it inhabitable, at least as a space station, is impractical and would be exhorbitantly expensive. Let’s worry about the health of the earth first.
    I was born in Freeport, Il and now they are faced with Bain’s closure of their Senata plant which makes switches for autos, planes and MISSILES. Bain has forced workers of many years of loyalty to train Chinese to replace them. In early November the plant will be closed and operations will go to China. The workers have sent representatives to meet with Romney who still gets checks from Bain. At the Iowa State Fair the crowd called them communists. The real communists are in China getting our Senata plant. This is an outrage! It is crazy and unpatriotic to send profitable companies to China or Mexico or anywhere. If Mitt ignores this he will pay in November.

    i am for romney not because of romney but because of obama’s voters. section 8, illegals, abortion, gays, food stamps, crack blacks, atheists, smirking professors, govt unions, people readers and those in people, agenda driven teachers and leg openers who want the govt subsidizing their recreational needs. if obama wins it will mean all of the above are in the majority, and in control, and with this arguably lethal threat i would go for the land of the greed instead of the home of the gay.

  • Richards Lyon MD

    My first try at “poetry.” Do my #13 shoes “show it?”

    There once was a boy named Barry,
    Early childhood in the heartland of Kenya.
    His last name Soetoro he found inconvenient,
    And new name Barak Obama seemed better.
    He saw only himself as a career change appeared.
    His fantasy world was so easy to describe.
    Given everything to work with, tools all around him, but denied the Empathy needed to see them,
    He has gone his way, really alone, his toys soon to be gone.
    And when it is all “said and done” he will disappear in his world, content that his mission succeeded.

    But what was it?

If they were anything else, you would have NO one you could turn to in times of trouble, Perhaps you should join that church out in Kansas who claims God is killing our servicemen and women because we allow gays to openly exist. Or, from the stomping and screaming I keep hearing from your corner on how bad gays are, it could well be you are still in the closet and don’t want anyone other than the one or two you play with to know it. Seems like closeted gays have the loudest mouths against gays of any.

  • chuckb

    norm, your above comment about the gm plant in janesville, wisc, is wrong, the plant laid off 1200 workers on dec. 23rd,2008, they retained approx 36 people to finish orders and kept the plant open until april 2009. this information is from a far left website and is correct.
    your hero was president when the plant closed and he said twice it would never shut down for a hundred years if he was elected.

    the bolsheviks start lies then counter themselves.

    • Norm

      You are joking of course.
      Canning 1200 workers and keeping 36 to finish the final gory details = closing the plant!
      If you don’t think Ryan was lying you are beyond all help.

      • jopa

        Norm;There is a real pattern with Ryans Lying and even with trivial things such as a marathon he ran.He claims to have run the Grandmas marathon in Minnesota in under three hours when his own brother reminded him it was actually four hours.He truly is one of those guys that if you cant dazzle them with brilliance then baffle them with bull sh__.A marathon runner never forgets their best time.

      chuckb
      You obviously don’t understand how big companies work.
      That plant was doomed long before the 1200 workers were let go. If it weren’t for the bailout of GM there probably wouldn’t be a GM. That was Romney’s choice. But then he likes closing companies with a handsome profit for himself. Robber Baron?

      • MikeR

        Norm: If GM had been allowed to go through bankruptcy without Omama’s involvement, it would have been able to renegotiate wages and pensions, which is what got it into the mess it’s are still in. GM is doomed to fail in the future, because it is still burdened with bloated union wages, benefits, and pensions.

  • Kevin Baisdon

    Look it doesn’t matter when the frickin’ plant closed. Ryan didn’t claim that Obama closed it; he said O promised it would stay open under his presidency.
    Similarly, who gives a rats ass about his marathon time? Do you realize how lame you sound when you can’t fault Paul Ryan on anything of substance?

      Ben; That’s to best article I’ve seen on here yet!

      I saw something today that really says a lot about the Democrats if I can find it again;

      Here’s a list of the 10 poorest cities in the U.S. and the percentage of the population in each one who are considered to be living below the poverty level:

      1. Detroit, Michigan 32.5%
      2. Buffalo, N.Y. 29.9%
      3. Cincinnati, Ohio 27.8
      4. Cleveland, Ohio 27%
      5. Miami, Fla. 26.9%
      6. St. Louis, Mo. 26.8%
      7. El Paso, Texas 26.4
      8. Milwaukee, Wis. 26.2%
      9. Philadelphia, Pa. 25.1%
      10. Newark, N.J. 24.2%

      What do the top ten cities(over 250,000 population)
      with the highest poverty rate all have in common?

      Detroit, MI (1st) hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1961.

      Buffalo , NY (2nd) hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1954.

      Cincinnati , OH (3rd) hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1984.

      Cleveland , OH (4th) hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1989.

      Miami , FL (5th) has never had a Republican mayor.

      Einstein once said, ‘The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.’

      It is the poor who habitually elect Democrats
      yet they are still POOR!

      “You cannot help the poor
      by destroying the rich.

      You cannot strengthen the weak
      by weakening the strong.

      You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
      You cannot lift the wage earner up

      by pulling the wage payer down.
      You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

      You cannot build character and courage
      by taking away people’s initiative and independence.

      You cannot help people
      permanently by doing for them,
      what they could and should
      be doing for themselves.
