The Five People You’ll Meet In Charlotte

November 30, 2011 by  

The Five People You’ll Meet In Charlotte

In 2003, Detroit-based sportswriter Mitch Albom published the much-heralded The Five People You Meet In Heaven. The book spent nearly two years on the bestseller list and was made into a TV movie starring Jon Voight. It told the tale of one man’s life, growth and death as seen through the lens of five individuals with whom he is inextricably linked.

Granted, none of the five folks of whom I speak today offer opportunities for growth beyond the sort achieved by fungus and mold, and their connection to life and death revolves around the former for murderers and the latter for unborn babies. Some might even see my references to Albom’s work as a shameless attempt to hitch my rhetorical wagon to an enormously successful writer. It is. But Albom lives in Detroit, so I’m certain he has suffered greater pain. And Albom has sold about 30 million books, so I’m quite sure he’ll survive the indignity.

This summer, the Democratic Party will hold its quadrennial Presidential nominating convention in Charlotte, N.C. Among the rogue’s gallery who will descend upon that poor city to re-coronate President Barack Obama (or perhaps not; check out Chip Wood’s column The Plot To Make Hillary President) will be the usual coterie of bottom-feeders who populate every large gathering of liberals. While every single one of them will share the dubious distinction of being members of the Democratic Party, they generally will fit into one of five categories (although given the girth of some of their masters, some pushing and/or WD40® will be involved).

With apologies to Albom, I present: the five people you’ll meet in Charlotte.

The Egghead

Distinguishing characteristics of the egghead include: unwashed hair, a ponytail (regardless of both gender and amount of hair remaining atop the head), speaking with eyes closed and spectacular body odor.

Often nominally employed as either a lawyer or college professor (or worse, both), the egghead suffers from an odd combination of low self-esteem and overestimation of his own intellectual import. This psychological stew produces an individual who recognizes that no one really cares what he thinks, and he responds by replacing import with volume.

The egghead carries a dog-eared copy of Rules for Radicals and the latest issue of Mother Jones in the tote bag he earned for donating $25 to his local PBS affiliate. The veterans write for hate-speech blogs like Dailykos; the real all-stars quote their own material in the third person.

Eggheads are fond of making definitive statements about the evils of conservatives, such as: “The Rethuglicans are pushing for immigration reform because they’re racist” and “The ‘teabaggers’ are so stupid.” The egghead laments 9-11, but only because it made life harder for Muslims. The egghead considers Michael Moore a visionary and George Soros a saint, and he has no issue with the fact that both are archetypal hypocrites.

The egghead supports any legislation and/or court decisions which abrogate the rights to offer opinions, pray or own firearms — except for liberal hate speech, Islamofascism and Mexican narcoterrorists. When eggheads dress down, they wear the jerseys of European Premier League soccer teams and refer to soccer as “football” and football as “American football,” though they’ve never been farther east than a whale-watching trip off Nantucket Island, Mass.

The eggheads’ idols are Keith Olbermann and Rob Reiner. Their defining Issue is the establishment of the United Nations as the world government. Their next destination is Occupy Haight-Ashbury.

The True Believer

Distinguishing characteristics of the true believer include: wearing mom jeans (regardless of gender) and bringing “Hillary ’12” and “Obama ’12” buttons (both homemade) to Charlotte, just to be on the safe side.

When the rest of the fleabaggers headed home to mommy’s basement because it began raining, this was the redoubtable martyr who stayed out there, proudly waving a hand-lettered “I am the 99%” sign. The true believer has never led so much as one of those disjointed chants of which liberals are so fond, but he is the rock upon which the Democrats balance. The true believer isn’t mean-spirited like most liberals; but a dearth of intellect – and, therefore, long-term prospects — have left him vulnerable to believing his party’s promises of an easier life with limited effort. Younger true believers will come to Charlotte with their egghead college professors on junkets paid for by their college student activity funds.

In photos of outraged liberal protesters, the true believer always smiles and is never in the front row. Many members of the Service Employees International Union are true believers who believe that verified reports of union thug and/or occupier violence “are overblown.”

The true believers’ idols are Hillary Clinton (because she’s such a strong woman) and Michelle Obama (because she looked great in the latest issue of People magazine). Their defining issue is… um, let them check with the eggheads. Their next destination is a Unitarian Universalist sing-along and drum circle.

The Joiner

Distinguishing characteristics of the joiner include: owning at least a half-dozen cats, wearing T-shirts proclaiming so (even in rather formal settings) and saying “interwebs” without a hint of irony.

The joiner shows up at Democratic rallies because Democrats need warm bodies, and the joiner has nowhere else to go. The joiner will listen in on conversations of which he is not a part and later misquote the speaker thusly: “They say..” as in: “They say the Koch brothers are funding attacks on the Occupiers!” The joiner seems incongruously cheered by fairly mundane news, as in: “One of Nancy Pelosi’s staffers just told me to step aside.  She was that close to me!”

The joiner watches MSNBC’s nightly tirades and nods the whole time. The joiner reads the eggheads’ blogs, but never writes his own. Male joiners gravitate toward the most outraged female they see. Female joiners gravitate toward the first rock star or movie star they see.

The joiners’ idols are Madonna and Leonardo DiCaprio. They have two defining issues. Older joiners want increased Federal funding for Planned Parenthood. Younger joiners want Federally subsidized weed. Their next destination is determined by their age. Older joiners will go home alone. Younger ones will go back to the vegan dorm.

The Outraged Minority

Distinguishing characteristics of the outraged minority include eight-button suits (male), awesome hats (female) and wardrobe colors not found in nature (both).

The outraged minority Democrat stands apart from the rest of the rabble, partially because he doesn’t like noisy white people and partially because he doesn’t like quiet white people. Outraged minorities will vote for any black Democrat and will subsequently consider any opposition to black Democrats racist. Outraged minorities stood with Marion Barry, O.J. Simpson, Kwame Kilpatrick and William Jefferson, but they consider conservative blacks “Uncle Toms.”

The outraged minorities’ idols are R. Kelly and Johnnie Cochran. Their defining issue is re-election for Obama (and Marion Barry). Their next destination is church; Jeremiah Wright is delivering a special homily.

The Thinker

Distinguishing characteristics of the thinker include: being groomed (but not overly so) and being mortified by his surroundings (but keeping quiet about it).

The thinker is a rare liberal. The thinker is likely socially liberal, but harbors fading hopes that his party can be rescued from the clutches of the aforementioned people. The thinker has studied the issues from multiple angles, and his objections to some positions tend to be fairly well-informed and based on principle — as opposed to ignorance or hate.

Older thinkers voted for Ronald Reagan in 1984 and backed Hillary Clinton in 2008. When Obama loses next November, a large part of his defeat will be due to thinkers abandoning him for Ron Paul.

The thinkers’ idol is President Harry S. Truman. Their defining issue is saving their party from their fellow characters. Their next destination is returning home to their families, followed by work the next morning.

Of course, these categorizations are far too broad. There are many subcategories within each of the aforementioned categories. Unlike the characters in Albom’s bestseller, heaven-bound souls are few and far between; although it would be enormously entertaining to watch a personal injury lawyer try to argue his way past Saint Peter.

Liberals are fond of overly simplistic generalizations; I am fond of making liberals sputter like preteen girls whose parents confiscated their iPhones. What better way is there to do so than to hold up the mirror and give them (and you) a look at themselves, warts — or fleas — and all?

    Yea, Ben, I can’t wait to HEAR about it. There is NO way I’d waste the electricity it will take to WATCH such a political ‘love in.’ What you should have added to article is the idea that power attracts certain mindsets, and that this particular group-hug will attract all manner of social rejects and braindead “geniuses.” The folks running America’s version of WORLD KONTROL will open that Big Tent for all the world to see who’s been hiding in it.
    Don’t be surprised to see wannabe goddesses, NAMBLA, brownshirts, MIB-types and perhaps what might be the penultimate type of space cadet, ‘people’ who need Washington’s help to marry their
    favorite animal (it’s got to be true “love’ or they wouldn’t want it).
    LSD and Prozac vendors may make more money at that circus than booze peddlers. It will be quite a show. Somebody take good notes. Take some pictures and spread it around on the internet. I can’t wait to see the hordes of smiling faces of the new plantation owners.

    • FreedomFighter

      I like to watch to see who starts licking there lips like a snake, usually they all do eventually. Almost as if many of them were some type of alien reptile/human hybrd sliming its way to domination of earth.

      Also its really interesting to see how many actually talk out the side of there mouth, both news types and candidates.

        Talk out the side of their mouth…me thinks you got the wrong end, of these buttkissers!

        • Stryder

          Hey Doc,
          The only difference between a brown-noser and a butt-kisser is depth perception.
          I do agree that they are speakin outta the WRONG end.

          • denniso

            Mr Crystal…It’s obvious that you feel the need to play into the juvenile and low mentality of your fans on this site,w/ terms like ‘fungus’,'mold’,'bottom feeder’, when describing ‘liberals’,but don’t you get a little bored doing that repeatedly? Wouldn’t it be more pleasing as a writer to actually say something of substance and w/ some depth for a change rather than just engaging in attempts at clever name calling of Americans you disagree w/ politically? You’re not a bad writer,but why not try dropping the childishness and get to the meat of the issues?

          • libertytrain

            Can’t help but wonder if Bill Maher gets the same sort of letters from the left….

          • APN

            Denisso……Well Well, ole Dumniso speaks again. I haven’t had much time to be blogging since the 2010 elections(been Working and paying large sums of taxes) but you and I had several conversations about the projected outcome prior to the big 2010 event.

            If I remember correctly, you stated that the demorats would control both houses of congress!!! In fact, I think you were so confident, you said we dumb ole TP’ers would get slaughtered!

            I think you may have missed that one just a little bit….):> LOL In fact, I think it kinda went the other way, like set some major records for us, didn’t it?

            Given the results, what happened dumniso? You got any “Projections” for 2012?

            Now, before you answer, let me guess; We dumb ole TP’ers are going to loose everything! AMABO will get re-elected, the demorats will take back control of the house and HUGE numbers will be gained in the senate and then it will be disclosed that AMABO is really a god!

          • denniso

            Bill Mahr mocks people and saterizes,but I have never heard him equate anyone to fungus and mold. He also sticks to the facts of what people actually say and do,as opposed to making things up. We all can disagree,but when we sink to calling people fungus don’t you think that’s a bit low,even for the rightwing?

          • APN

            T Dumniso…… You stated: Bill Mahr mocks people and saterizes,but I have never heard him equate anyone to fungus and mold. He also sticks to the facts of what people actually say and do,as opposed to making things up.

            ______________________________________________________________________

            That is about the most insane, dishonest and foolish statement that I have ever read on this blog.

            Nope, he isn’t smart enough to use the words fungus or mold because he is too busy using the F word or some other foul mouthed garbage that would be typical of you left-wing marxist wackos.

            He sticks to the facts?? You got to be kidding me! Oh, I forgot, in your mind, if it makes you “Feel Good” then that makes it a fact. Or if that is the way you perceive something SHOULD BE, then that makes it a fact. Correct???

            Beam me up! The level of progressive stupidity boggles the adult mind.

          • eddie47d

            APN: Yes the Tea Party had an amazing rise up but now they are taking a dive downward. Their approval rate is 23% now verses 33% last year. That is a big gap to ignore. Still better than the 8% for Congress.

          • APN

            EddieISM….Not sure where you get your FACTS but so as not to waste both your time and mine……2012 my friend….MILLIONS upon MILLIONS upon MILLIONS of us TP’ers, will let you and the left hear our voices, LOUDLY.

          • denniso

            APN…regarding the ’10 elections,it looks like we split,doesn’t it. The smarter,more caring people kept control of the Senate while the more vicious and less smart people regained the House…the tea party has now pushed too far and radical,as their poll numbers clearly show. It’s a long time until the election and a lot can happen in that time. If the economy doesn’t improve at a faster rate than it is now,then sure,Obama and the Dems will likely suffer the wrath of the public. If the economy picks up more steam your heros are dead meat,partly because the pulic is not seeing much hope in this wacko array of repub candidates. My prediction? Obama wins and the Congress remains divided so that nothing much will be accomplished for the next 4 yrs. Obama looks like a pure genius compared to the likes of Gingrich/Bachmann/Perry.

          • APN

            Thanks Dumniso….. That reassures me of the outcome in 2012. You think we had a split in 2012? What planet you live on?

            In any event, I can assure you that the economy will not improve before November 2012, and even if it did, you will still loose, in a LARGE fashion. You are about to witness a TOTAL rejection of your socialist/marxist America hating agenda.

            I have numerous liberal and independent friends, and can assure you, based upon their comments, AMABO is toast, so better start working on getting him replaced with your superstar HC. You will still loose, just not as badly.

            This is what happens when you put foolish childish people in positions of power that couldn’t manage a two kid kindergarten.

          • denniso

            Not a split in ’10?? We kept the Senate, the kooks got the House. That sounds like a split to me.

            Obama v Bachmann…55%-45%
            Obama v Gingrich…53%-47%
            Obama v Romney…..51%-49%
            Paul? Toast!
            Perry? Gone!

            You have liberal friends?? Don’t think so.

          • APN

            T Dumniso……You said……Not a split in ’10?? We kept the Senate, the kooks got the House. That sounds like a split to me.

            I like your interpretation of a “Split”.

            1.) How many seats did you pick up in the Senate?????

            2.) How many seats did you pick up in the house?????

            3.) How about the state and local levels? How well did you do there??? (Slaughtered)

            As usual, you have trouble with basic math or basic truth.
            Your prediction:
            Obama v Bachmann…55%-45%
            Obama v Gingrich…53%-47%
            Obama v Romney…..51%-49%
            Paul? Toast!
            Perry? Gone!

            So shall it be written, so shall it be done! The all omnipotent dumniso speaks again. Based upon your prior performance…..I give you a 1 in 10 shot.

            Gingrich/Cain vs AMABO/Clinton: 60/40
            Gingrich/Bachman vs same: 55/45

            This will be the biggest slaughter in the history of our country and will be a TOTAL rejection of your C&P maxist ideology. Get ready for a major swing back to the right….it’s coming.

            You said…….You have liberal friends?? Don’t think so.

            Again, you assume much and understand very little. I said liberal fiends, not GOD hating, American hating C&P marxist kooks.

          • APN

            t Dumniso…..One last thing. Next time maybe try doing a little research before you start calling the 2010 elections a “split”. If you need help getting the facts, it’s pretty darn simple! Just go to your favorite web browser and type in “2010 election results” and SHAZAAM!

            WOW! Look at all that RED! Doesn’t appear to be a “Split” to me! Look at the “local” data as well….SHAZAAM AGAIN!!!!! even more red!

            However, I do like your progressive math skills. Works for me! Keep up the great job of projecting and then reporting the “Facts”.

        • USAF VET

          No, what I am saying Mark is that the Democrats are very bad for this country…As are the Republicans…IF we are to keep this country from becoming like every other ‘empire builder’ in the past we have to #1 have term limits for these cretins, er, politicians and #2 better distinguish WHO is lying to us and for what reason…

          • Joe H.

            Brian,
            And just when we DO find a few good ones that DON’T lie, your term limits will kick them out the door!!! Just in time to get another batch of lying BA$TARDS!!!

            Any chance of you spreading around some of the Soros wealth that you are being paid to lurk on Conservative websites and respond with a canned contrary canard?

        • eddie47d

          You are too obsessed with Soros and lack the ability to think for yourself. The only that seems to be paid around here is SC who is Johnny on the spot and repeats the same mantra each time. That would be fun though to find out who is really getting paid for that would blow their opinions whether left or right.

          • APN

            EddieISM….We work for a living and do this for fun. Nothing more relaxing, after a hard day at WORK, than toying with a progressives simple mind.

          • eddie47d

            You must be on vacation this week since you are commenting all day long. I’m retired so I sometimes have the time I need. Some of us have been around here for over two years and some come and go like the wind. You sound familiar but under a different name. Anyway it looks like some of us push the Conservatives buttons more than they push ours. It does get testy at times. Way too much lying,denying and anger on most days and alot of “fish stories” are told.

    • lkar

        Oh, I believe that has already happened. Two of her staffers were indicted this week.

    • Descendent of the Founders

      A friend told me about this website and this is my first visit. Never before have I seen such vituperous lunacy spewed forth by people who consider themselves patriots and inflexibly correct.

      Ben Crystal has all the charm of the contents of a syringe that just lanced an infected hemorrhoid and journalistic integrity that makes Pravda seem unbiased.

      There are many ways to love our wonderful country, and many opinions as to how to solve our problems. Intractable hatred never solved anything. Look at what the Taliban has accomplished. Do we need that here? Just as our founding fathers wisely found ways to listen to and compromise with various viewpoints and create our Constitution. This document is a living tribute to open mindedness and a recognition of what to be human means.

      It is time extremists on all sides crawled out of their holes and see the light.

      • Chris

        Absolutely agree 100% with one little exception. I don’t Crystal’s writing ability would qualify him for a position on a good high school newspaper.

        • APN

          … and what would you be qualified for?

        • USAF VET

          You Libsters just cannot stand satire can you. All of what Ben Crystal wrote was tongue in cheek. But little did he realize that some of it was actually true, not all of it, but he sure described the almost bald guy with the ponytail to a T. I’ve seen those types before, even worked with a few of them, and they are so determined to make you believe their point of view that they cannot see the truth if it came up and slapped them in the face.

          • Joe H.

            USAF VET,
            Their problem with satire is that sometimes it mirrors real life!!!

      • Terry

        Oh, for the good old days before political parties formed and morphed into what they are today. The reality is that Democrats have always supported slavery and feudalism with themselves as ‘masters’ while Republicans specifically formed to combat that idiocy, eventually supporting ethical capitalism as the free-est form of overcoming poverty. Today R’s are seen as the party of ‘big business’ but it’s support is actually for free enterprise & small businesses while Dem’s suck up the big checks from Wall Street and other CEOs cuz they are known to be for sale.

        • APN

          BRAVO!!! Well put!

        • Descendent of the Founders

          All of the old Dixiecrats became Republicans. Your ancient history is corrects but oh, how things have changed.

      • http://google.com Rob

        Absolutely there are extremist on both sides of the isle, the only difference being the worst extremists are elected, President Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. Why do democrats seemed determined to elect the most outrages, out of touch individuals they can find. Democrats have gotten so far left, they have to try and define themselves as moderates during the elections. What happened to the days of Moderate Democrats like John Kennedy and even Bill Clinton. Barack Obama has destroyed the Democrat Party much in the same manor he’s destroying the Country. Everytime he comes up with some crazy unworkable jobs plan, fellow democrats have to run for cover. Never in modern history have we had a president so destructive to the US Constitution. Obama has made it a habit of violating the Constitution. If it’s not the War Powers Act, he’s stomping on the Seperation Clause or the Second Amendment.

        • Earl

          You were on the mark until you brought up the ” separtation clause…..It does not exist! The so-called separation of church and state relates to Jefferson’s answer to the Woodbury Baptists. Show me the clause!!

    • Ranger 1

      What’s the old adage, . . . . . . . something about “people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones”! The humorous description (which probably isn’t far off base) of the five “types” of Dems who will meet in Charlotte, could easily be surpassed by even more humorous descriptions of the types of characters who will attend the Republican Nominating Convention in Tampa FL in Aug of 2012. Starting with a group of folks, mostly from the Midwest, who barely have a 2 digit IQ, and think it’s O.K. to teach the story of Creation in Biology class, to the typical Republican bullies, who buy wholeheartedly into Robert Ringers concept of “Winning Through Intimidation”, there of course will be those who actually think that a consummate imbecile like “Dubya” was smart, even though in 8 years of a disastrous administration he never learned how to correctly pronounce the rather important word, NUCLEAR!!! Then there will be the group trying to get rid of all government regulation, who seem oblivious to the irrefutable fact that it was Dubya’s administration who actually did that, which resulted in our current depression! Closely affiliated will be the Libertarian wing who buy into Ron Paul’s crapola that the only thing government should provide is military, police, and fire, and who think that we should get rid of public education, National Parks (Heck, sell ‘em to Disney), social security, the EPA, Medicare, etc. The largest group, by far, or course will be those who suffer from an enlarged amygdala, that small almond-shaped neurological node in the anterior portion of both temporal lobes. As research has indicated, conservatives generally have a larger amygdala than liberals. The problem is, as the amygdala processes FEAR information en route to the brain, these folks FEAR everything; from immigration to Al Qaeda, to muslims, blacks, hispanics, asians, same sex couples, etc. Heck, they’re simply big “fraidy cats”. The funny thing is, most of the biggest homiophobes in the Republican party, are themselves probably closet homosexuals. In fact, over the past decade, there have been so many key Republican figures “coming out of the closet” it’s been suggested that perhaps the GOP should change its mascot from an elephant to a MOTH!

    It is so sad to see someone make a living out of denigrating and pigeonholing PEOPLE. Yes, I do see some truths in what Ben has written; however, most of us do not take pleasure (or make money)out of making fun of people. Everyone has the right to be who they are. I bet Ben was a bully in school. (Either that, or he was the one bullied, hence his predisposition toward putting other people down.)

            Perhaps you should learn the spelling of “Imbecile” before criticizing others.

        • Stryder

          OMG! A professional do-gooder!
          You get paid to tell someone that slouches at an interview with you that they have no self-esteem. Ever consider that person may be working 2 1/2 jobs and is too weary to sit up straight?
          Or, are you like the marriage councilor that thinks they know EVERYTHING about marriage because they’ve been married 7 times?
          Get a life, occupy a REAL job.

          • Karolyn

            The way I see it, a “real” job is any job that pays a wage. I have worked at what I WANTED to work at for most of my life; and as a result, do not have a lot (never been materialistic) and am not jaded by doing something I hated my whole life.

        • DaveH

          Okay, Karolyn, get out your magic mirror so it can reassure you that you’re the fairest of them all. While you do rarely engage in name-calling, your comments drip with condescension most of the time. And the odd thing is that no matter how radical some of your leftist buddies get, I rarely (if ever) have seen you put them in their place.
          Ben may get carried away in his efforts at satire, but I actually would classify him as a Liberal due to his militarist stance and his love for Big Government Establishment Republicans. Of course, he is much less Liberal than most of those on the Left.
          At any rate, Karolyn, I think you are the Pot calling the Kettle Black.

          • denniso

            Karolyn is one of the least abusive people on this site…I have never seen her stoop to the low levels that so many here do,even w/ such a minor thing as ‘condescension’.I’ve never seen her make a personal attack,even in response to one on her,just like now. She also doesn’t use phrases like,’feeding at the trough’,as DaveH does repeatedly if he wants to try to demonize someone….She also never equates all rightwingers to Hitler or Satan,as many here do w/ liberals or progressives.
            The strategy by rightwingers here is to toss enough personal insults at someone like Karolyn so that she gets sick of it and leaves,leaving the little boys/girls to hurl insults and names freely at the dems and anyone who may disagree w/the fuzzy and irrational rightwing illogic.

            Being condescending and satirical are way different than calling people mold and fungus. Besides,it can be very difficult to not be condescending to some who are apparently so ill educated or intellectual at all,those who can only call Obama a Kenyan,Marxist,Socialist,and have no ability to discuss anything substantial.

          • DaveH

            I need not comment about your personal abuses, Denniso. They are well known by the regulars on the board.

          • eddie47d

            Dave is really running from the truth today. OUCH! He can’t stand being called out and denies it every time.

          • DaveH

            The Truth, Eddie, is that you’re a useless Troll who is here solely to harass Freedom Lovers.

          • denniso

            DaveH has to keep calling people names,doesn’t he? Why is it that he can’t seem to stand having people disagree w/ his simplistic fairy tale of phony libertarianism and fake ‘free market’ solutions? Most of us who are not die hard conservatives enjoy debate and discussion on all issues,and don’t think that only we have all the answers. It appears to be a trademark of most on the right that they can’t tolerate differences of opinion and are prone to personal attacks rather than discussion…why? Are they simple minded,or just uneducated on the issues to any real depth?

          • libertytrain

            Typical overextended ego above in the “do as I SAY not as I DO.” Go figure – yes, remind us again that our candle couldn’t possibly burn as bright as yours … lest we forget. Shoot, I’m just too simple-minded to comprehend your comment -

          • denniso

            You want to include yourself in my description of die hard rightwingers who either can’t think or refuse to even try because they are so certain they have absolutely all the answers to absolutely every problem or issue,be my guest…

          • libertytrain

            Sweetie – you did the sweeping generalization —

          • denniso

          • firefight

            Wu, that was a bulls eye. “elevator operator.” I’m laughing my butt off. Poor Karolyn. I know she means well in her postings and her most recent attempts to dispose Ben’s vivid pictures of the left, but he’s only painting what he sees. An artist can do no more. She, on the other hand, sees the art and attempts to critique it while standing on her head. Of course it all looks upside down. Get back on your feet Karolyn and you might see the picture as Ben intended. Ben means well too and sometimes uses coarser brushes and very vivid colors in his work just to get his point across to those with thicker craniums. For some, sadly, the brushes will never be coarse enough and the colors never as vivid as they need to be.

          Some of you are the ones who should practice what you preach. A most wonderful hate speech Mr Author with your “simplistic generalizations” . Your words and it fits the author to a Tee.He brings up “liberal hate speech” but over looks his own long winded hate speech. I hate to tell the author that the “fleabaggers” didn’t “retreat to their mommies basement” to get out of the rain. It was your police state goons who drove them off mein Furer. You are as a sad bunch of hypocrites and loving every minute of it.Your weak attack against pony tails was even more pathetic as if that is a burning concern for anyone. Desperation at it’s finest Mr Author since our Founding Fathers and Colonists wore the same . Now go down to the Republican convention and snap some colorful photos and outrageous outfits. LOL!!!

          • JeffH

            If anything, Ben surely has got eddie pegged…to a tee!

            “Liberals are fond of overly simplistic generalizations; I am fond of making liberals sputter like preteen girls whose parents confiscated their iPhones. What better way is there to do so than to hold up the mirror and give them (and you) a look at themselves, warts — or fleas — and all?”

            1- “overly simplistic generalizations”
            2- “sputter like preteen girls”
            3- “…will listen in on conversations of which he is not a part and later misquote the speaker”

            What better way is there to do so than to hold up the mirror?

            I have come to the belief that Eddie stands on his head while he watches TV. At any rate, the guy must be a heavy drinker. How else could he stomach making all those bizarre comments?

          • eddie47d

            Wrong Again Dave! You’re batting average is …very bad. I seldom drink alcohol although I see nothing wrong with those who do if they can control themselves. So you don’t strike out again I don’t do drugs either although I do believe in the legalization of some. I support all Marijuana Amendments that come up and believe the police and courts have way too much power over peoples lives.

          • Joe H.

            DaveH,
            The way eddie jumps up to deny Alcohol use all the time, one wonders if it’s to cover up his “condition”!!!

          • eddie47d

            Dave makes false accusations and Joe comes to HIS defense. Now that is a sickness Joe!

          • libertytrain

            we could substitute denniso for Dave and eddie for Joe….but you don’t apparently see that do you – poor dear.

          • denniso

            There is one huge difference…Eddie is clearly sane,civil and educated,joeH is clearly none of those.

            Speaking as a long-reformed and quite well experienced observer of both the political left AND the political right, I’ll tell you that what I see here is the pot calling the kettle black. I can’t fathom WHY a bunch of libs who hate such so called conservative or right wing sites just can’t resist attraction to them, kind of like a moth to a candle flame.

            The P must stand for Pete as in Pete and RePete. LOL! No I don’t live in a trailer do you? You seem to be the one carrying the wejee board around in all your predictions.

          • Karolyn

            You have just proven my point about the methods used by so many conservatives. Your question is just meant to bait me. Have a really nice evening! :-)

          • APN

            But Karolyn, back prior to the 2010 elections you stated that your were living in a trailer in the woods getting government assistance? You mean that has changed? Good for you!

          • Joe H.

            APN,
            you know, you’re right! I also remember her saying she was going to school using entitlements as well. She was telling how she never locks her doors!! It would stand to reason she wouldn’t want government “programs” to be cut!!!

          • APN

            JoeH…Exactly! I have a pretty good memory, and in fact, I think she owned an antique store up north that went bankrupt. So what did she do, moved down south, signed up for government assistance, including a free education and spends the vast majority of her time blogging about how “Enlightened” she is. So much so, she is FAR SUPERIOR to us self-reliant, self-sufficient folks!!!!

          • eddie47d

    • Carlucci

      Like conservatives AREN’T pigeonholed and denigrated every day by the lame stream media and those lunkheads mentioned in the article? Look at what they said about Sarah Palin, and now the attacks are focused on Ron Paul and Herman Cain, and anyone who wants freedom and capitalism to come back.

      Yes, Karolyn, everyone has a right to be who they are. The problems start when radicals and communists push their agendas on the rest of us.

      I don’t think Ben is a bully at all. He is just pointing out the obvious and having a bit of fun doing it.

      Hey everybody – I gotta finish getting ready and go to work. Hope everyone has a fabulous day.

      • denniso

        Is it against the law in this ‘free’ country to be a communist or socialist? Is it illegal to be a Democrat,or libertarian,anarchist??
        You get to decide what political beliefs people can hold? I suppose you want to make Atheism a crime? Maybe you want to criminalise Islam,Hindus,Pagans??????
        You can demonize political beliefs all you want,that doesn’t make them criminal,does it.

    • Altaica

      I wonder if there will be a five types of Republican next in the series. I am sure not all of the Dems are as he says, and I am sure the reps have their fair share of people that can be just as easily stereotyped. Either way I’ve no interest in joining either party, but it is interesting to see what stereotypes are floating around out there. In a way it is both funny and sad the amount of name calling and stereotyping going on between the two parties. Perhaps we’d get more done if less time was spent flinging mud and more time actually focusing on solving the actual problems. Ah well, this circus at least provides a small modicum of entertainment, and pie in the face never seems to get old.

      • Wu Ming Ren

        Solving the actual problems? There would be no actual problems were it not for the lawless political class.

        If you are not part of a solution, then you ARE part of the problem. For evil to triumph requires good people to stand on the sidelines and do nothing.

      • APN

        Unfortunately, we are WAY beyond having any form of civil discourse with the left.

        You see, this is how progressivism works and we have already compromised WAY to much thus we have the mire and the muck of progressive stupidity.

        Time for the pendulum to swing WAY back to the right to undo the past 100 years of progressive foolishness.

            What is it about what I said that you don’t understand? Do I need to spell it out for you? I can type slower if needed.

        • Joe H.

          APN,
          I see on two polls tonight that R. Paul is in third place. I also heard Cain say he was going to “reformulate” his options. Usually, at this point, when they say that, they are looking at getting out of the race. Said he had to consider the toll on his family. He doesn’t believe the trouble comes from the repubs. He said look at it, here he was in first place and out of nowhere here it came. Me, I don’t care if R. Paul wins by default, attrition, or just plain luck!! Just as long as he WINS!!! I so much want to hear Abummer when he has to admit defeat to RON PAUL!!!!

          • APN

            Would love to see it but it will never happen. Probably going to end up being Newt. Just to many people that do not trust Romney.

    • DonnieB

      WE shouldn’t pigeon hole people? But yet your seem to be doing the same to the author. Everyone classifies people and discriminates. Would you date a person who won’t bath or brush their teeth, or is a child molester? Are you married? If so you have discriminated for profit (remember marriage is a business that you and your spouse run)
      This is not a bad thing. Life and that include humans are looking for a better situation and making informed decisions are a way to do this. The real trouble begins when we don’t make reasonable and informed choices.

    • mark

      Denigration, hatred, and fear are the holy trinity of the conservative/libertarian outlook on America, Karolyn. Note also that of the five types Crystal describes, he only shows a photo of one -the minority. This site uses this not-so-subtle racism over and over again in its constant use of photos of blacks either as rioters, criminals, or in this case an obvious reference to the welfare queeen, parasite, government leech (take your pick). Crystal et al knows their audience and what buttons to push to elicit all these angry, emotional, and frequently racist responses. Goebbels would be proud of these guys.

      • http://www.boblivingstonletter.com/ Bob Livingston

        Dear mark,

        Charges of racism are the last bastion of the ignorant and ill-informed. You and eddie47d and those of your ilk play the race card any time you have no other argument. That we make conscious decisions to play on race or use race to make a point is a lie. Frankly, it’s you that is applying a certain race to the “welfare queeen (sic), parasite, government leech (take your pick),” not us. eddie47d is on notice about unfounded and illegitimate charges of racism. Now you are on notice as well. We let a lot slide here. You will look far and wide to find a site as accommodating to commenters who dissent with the authors, myself included. But ad hominems such as this will not be allowed to stand. Be advised, you are now on probation.

        Best wishes,
        Bob

        • duaner

          Bob do us all a favor and throw eddied47d and mark off this site right now. I am so sick of their b.s. Notice I did not call it rhetoric but b.s. which it really is. I personally would like to reach through the internet and give eddied47d a righteous punch in the snout. Oh forgive my violent outburst.

          • eddie47d

            Free speech has always been selective and it depends on who controls the buttons. Whether TV,News print or Internet. Apparently Duaner is a closet coward since he has never challenged any thing I have said. Now he wants to play nasty and grandstand.

        • mark

          Dear Bob,

          What happened to free speech? Libertarians don’t believe in that anymore? Yesterday the most appalling homophobic insults and rants filled the response page on Barney Frank’s resignation article, calling him a sausage sucker and worst things I don’t even want to repeat. But this elicits no response from you? You’re very selective on what kinds of free speech you dispprove of. When people choose particular photos that they put up on a site, they are making a statement pure and simple. And I commented on what I think that statement is without using any obscene language or obscene insults to you or anyone else on this site.

          Sincerely, mark

          Best wishes,
          Bob

        • APN

          Eddie and Mark…..Hopefully Bob doesn’t but I certainly understand his point concerning unfounded charges of racism. I wouldn’t tolerate it either.

          However, I do see a great benefit in allowing you to continue to spew your unfounded hatred, for all to see, concerning your fellow man, our form of government, our GOD, and our way of life.

          As I told both you and Mark; greed, envy and hatred for you fellow man are your driving factors. Let anyone of us work hard and produce more than you do, and BINGO, we must be dishonest, a crook, a cheat, or and evil CEO…… or using your favorite words,CAPITALIST PIGS.

          How dare someone have more that eddie47d! How dare someone think they know better about what to do with the fruits of their labor without first consulting the eddieISM.

          All of us at this point have grown VERY tired of being cast as racists by those on the left who disagree with our opinion. i.e.; If you don’t tow the leftist socialist GOD hating American Hating rope, then you must be a racist.

          You assume much and understand very little about us FREE THINKING, GOD LOVING, FAMILY LOVING, COUNTRY LOVING, SELF-RELIANT AMERICANS.

          In fact, I’m sick of the entire agenda of the left which does nothing more than spew it’s hatred for those of us FREE THINKING AMERICANS who cannot be manipulated or controlled.

          But we all have limits and looks like your’s has just about been reached.

          …and that is MY FREE SPEECH.

          • eddie47d

            I have never used the term Capitalistic Pigs so that makes you a very loud obnoxious liar. Now if you want to run from the numerous racists remarks made here then that is your twisted mind and maybe a Conservative quirk. .

            “Since you aligned yourself with the capitalist criminals on Wall Street for decades maybe you are reaping what you sow.”

            just curious?

            just give me a little more time and I will provide you with further evidence. Surely you aren’t going to come back at me and say, “well, it depends on what the word “is”…..”is”.

          • APN

            Ole eddieISM again, Did you post the following comments on this blog:

            “I see you are still trying to spin your thieving friends on Wall Street into some noble entity”

            Just curious?

      • Brad

        Mark,

        Denigration, hatred, and fear are the holy trinity of the MSM; ie ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, Chris Mathews, Rachelle Madow, lets not forget Keith Olberman just to name few organizations and individuals all outspoken against conservatives and republicans. So where is the hate coming from now, not from this side of the fence…

        • Doug

          Oh now don’t forget about two of the biggest racist Demorats Liberals there are slave masters Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton! But yet their idol MLK was a Republican because he had the mental ability and know how to look through the Democrats and liberal BS and know he did not want to see any person being held as a slave like the Demorats. So you have no problem with them screwing blacks do you Mark?

          • Brad

            Amen Doug, good catch, I forgot about those two useful idiots, MLK would be turning over in his grave if he could see what has come of his people.

          • mark

            MLK voted for Republicans early in his political life because racist, white conservatives in the Democratic party dominated the American South in the 1950s-1960s. And also due to the historical legacy of Lincoln (despised on this site as tryrant) for helping to free his people from slavery. People often forget that the Democratic Party had a huge conservative wing mostly from the South in those days that consisted of virulent white racists who were also huge supporters of states rights, limited federal gov’t, a strong U.S. military, zero social programs, low taxes, anti-communism, and outlawing race-mixing in all forms. These Southern conservatives began leaving the Democratic Party in the 1970s and early 1980s after the passage of Civil Rights legislation. They joined the Republican Party where they felt right at home and have been ever since. Barry Goldwater was their ideological champion back then as he voted against both the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act. That is why white conservatives voted overwhelmingly for Goldwater in the South and as a result he carried Louisiana, Georgia, South Carolina, Mississippi, and Alabama – along with his home state Arizona. These were the only 6 states he won in 1964. The Republicans also had a significant moderate-liberal wing in those days as with Rockefeller, Javits, Weicker, Brooks, and of course Romney. The parties were not as ideologically pure as they are today with hardly any diversity of opinion. This has magnified the ideological divisions in our nation.

            Let’s not forget Whoopie and the rest of the crew on the View!!!! Oh, and Ms. Katie Couric!!!

        • mark

          While I do not agree with all the aforementioned commentators on MSNBC most of them spend their time condemning right-wing racists and bigots who catigate ACORN, welfare moms, minorities, immigrants, Muslims, etc. They don’t spew hatred but rather encourage tolerance for all Americans. FOX commentators on the other hand and many posters on this site stand up for the white male majority and use coded racist and ideological language (for many here it is not coded at all but quite open) to foster hatred and suspicion toward all non-white, non-Christian Americans.

            It works for them Mark! So they can get away with it.

        • eddie47d

          Your too naive Brad and wouldn’t see the right wing hate if it hit you upside the head.

          • APN

            get your mirror out eddie…maybe it will reveal something important about you.

          • eddie47d

            You need a two way mirror to check out all your hatred APN.

          • Joe H

            eddie,
            you need to understand. it’s kinda hard to see anything when trolls like you and your prog buddies are constantly throwing hate at US!!!

          • APN

            eddieISM….Now that makes the third time today you have jerked a tear our of me. MEANIE!

      • Earl

        Now that is the most Ill informed and simplistic thing I’ve heard to date!

        To the left, anyone who doesn’t agree with them is a hater or a racist or some other equally offensive and usually incorrect term.

    • Dntmkmecmoverther

      Pu-Leeeeze! He is pointing out the absurd hypocrisy of these dolts. And then, you chimed in with a slam on the guy who tells the truth…you must be one of the ‘True Believers’ Ben wrote of. The only sad part is the truths exposed through Ben’s humor…it’s all TOO true.

    • JUKEBOX

      Karolyn, humor is always based on truth, and every one of these people that Ben described remind me of some member of Congress or the MSM or the Bureaucracy. Think of Schumer, Cynthia McKinney, Ed Schultz, etc.

    • marsag21521

      You should relize that thousands and thousands died fighting and
      kept you safe to speak english and live in a free country. Because
      you can speak and give your thoughts freely.

    • Brad

      Karolyn,

      Don’t you think the other side is doing the samething Ben Crystal is writing about, except they have the MSM saying it all the time via national T.V.

      • Karolyn

        Brad, I watch ABC News and listen to NPR all the time and never hear any of that type of “journalism.”

        • Joe H.

          karolyn,
          What about the MSM reporter embedded in Iraq four years ago that was supposed to be reporting on the war and was, instead, egging soldiers toquestion their commanders thus MAKING the news instead of reporting it??? I suppose you think that is ok???

      • eddie47d

        He may be referring to MSNBC talk shows but they are no different than FOX talk shows. Brad can be a confused man.

  • Monte

    We can now expect an explosion of outrage from the mentally diseased and brain dead liberals that infect this site.

    • Karolyn

      Exactly what I mean. If someone is not like you, you think they are mentally defective. Must be nice to be perfect.

      • Monte

        There Karolyn, you prove my point.

        • DonnieB

          Well said Monty. Karolyn likes to show “enlightened” she is. But she happens to accuse the conservatives of the same things that she does herself. Liberals. I just shake my head and wonder how mankind has survived this long without them to tell everyone else how to run their lives.

          • APN

            BEA-UTI-MUS!

        • Helen2

          You know what I don’t understand Monte? Is why do liberals inhabit this site. They know it’s full of conservatives, so why bother? As far as your description of mentally defective and brain dead liberals I couldn’t agree more. My brother is a lib and he is definitely mentally defective. What else would you call someone who won’t have anything to do with his sister simply because she is a conservative? Both our parents and our other sibling are dead (and they were all conservatives), why would you alienate your only living relative that loves you? I still love him, but it doesn’t make it any easier to realize he’s just like all the rest of the libs. I would have thought our relationship was more important than that. Guess I was wrong on more than one count with him.

          I just don’t understand why Karolyn hangs out here if she doesn’t believe in the conservative movement. Go find a liberal place to hang out, where you won’t be offended by their comments.

          I thought Ben’s article was good. I don’t believe Ben is a bully, nor do I believe he was bullied in school – though he might have been, I just have no idea. Everyone puts people into categories. So why should that be such a bad thing? It’s how life is. If she makes a living of lifting people up, then she categorizes people on a regular basis. So leave poor Ben alone and go find a liberal site to post on.

          • Monte

            Helen, they don’t live in the real world, but a make-believe world. They are like someone stoned on drugs, but not knowing that they are. They are very totalitarian, in that they wish to silence all opposition to their dreams. It is surely a mental disease. Perhaps your sister will awaken. Prayer is our only solace.

          • Karolyn

            Helen – I have been a regular contributor to this site for over a year now. I have learned a tremendous amount and expanded my view. For that reason, I appreciate the site. However, I do not appreciate using hate and denigration to achieve a goal. I have a real problem with narrow-minded people, and this is the only place I have where I can try to get my point across. I just do not understand how people can call others “mentally defective” and other derogatory terms just because they have a different view of things. I do not understand how someone can be so sure of being so right! As I’ve said before, it must be nice to be an all-knowing psychic like some on this site, who pretend to know what another is all about.

          • firefight

            Karolyn, you state,
            “However, I do not appreciate using hate and denigration to achieve a goal. I have a real problem with narrow-minded people, and this is the only place I have where I can try to get my point across.”

            Your words speak volumes. If you have a problem with narrow minded people and this is the only place you can go to try and get your point across, then I must understand that the Liberal sites you have attempted to blog on are predominantly dominated by narrow minded individuals as you have come to a predominantly Conservative site to try and express you thoughts and beliefs. Fair enough. I don’t profess to know your intentions, but your very own words tell me this is true. You will, however, find people on all politically motivated blog sites that have blinders on. I have tried to express my thoughts on several Liberal sites and know from experience that some of those people are not just narrow minded, they are rude and even vicious. I’ve got the bullet holes, figuratively speaking, to prove it. This one point is very simple. Big Government is expensive because it creates many departments to control our environment and our lives. It does this because it does not trust US or think that we are capable of running our own lives. Smaller Government is less expensive because it wants to eliminate departments and return responsibility and liberties to the people that is being managed by those government departments. People who want control of their own lives with less Government interference and intervention tend to be in the Conservative corner. Those who don’t mind having the Government think for them and run their lives tend to be Liberal corner. Government departments cost money and that means tax dollars which ultimately means more money out our pockets. You must decide which corner you want to be in. As for me, I’ll run my own life, thank you.

          • bp

            Karolyn: EXACTLY! I’ve had this same conversation with liberals who live in la-la land like 60′s hippies! “I do not understand how someone can be so sure of being so right!” Liberals can believe anything, as long as you don’t believe it FOR CERTAIN. There you go. I agree with Helen; find a nice liberal blog to whine on; you cannot be of one accord with any hearts & minds here!

          • Karolyn

            Ah, but you are wrong. There are times here when I do agree with the majority; and there have been times when we have disagreed but have had meaningful dialogues that did not resort to name-calling. I admit that is the exception, but it does happen, especially when the discussion is regarding the FDA or the USDA.

          • eddie47d

            Helen complains about picking on poor Ben then blasts her own brother. Maybe the situation is actually reversed in that family. The problem with Conservatives is they want the place to themselves(censorship)but aren’t brave enough to admit it. They remind me of the three monkeys.

          • Joe H.

            eddie,
            I guess you missed the part where she said that she loves her brother in spite of being a liberal but he will have nothing to do with HER because she is a conservative??? sounds to me like HE is the narrow minded one!!!

          • eddie47d

            Why because he won’t come over to her point of view. I didn’t know she owned his mind must be another Conservative trait

          • Earl

            I have a 45-year old daughter who is a tree-hugger, and I haven’t heard from her in 5 years, not because of anything I said or did, but because she THINKS I am a conservative,Christian, etc. Once she said, Dad, don’t you know the earth is dying? Another time saw some individuals at a function, and she made the comment, Looks like a bunch of f—–ing Christians to me! Now that’s nasty-especially since I is one…but hope springs eternal…

          • Joe H.

            Earl,
            Just continue loving her in the hopes as she ages, she will also get wiser!!!

      • s c

        k, k, k. If Ben is a bully, then you must love it or you wouldn’t waste your precious time here. FYI, perfection isn’t preached here. Common sense and ways to sift and sort prime rib from bs is the main thrust on this website.
        How is it that you can put a third-rate mortal like Obs on a pedestal? Talk is cheap, k. Cheap talk is Obs’ main talent. What makes him DANGEROUS is the fact that he somehow weaseled his way into the W H. You want us to think RMN was an ‘imperial’ prez.
        RMN can’t hold a candle to Obs and HIS utterly IMPERIAL, UNCONSTITUTIONAL administration. His mask is coming off, k, and I’m wondering if you’re able to stand the shock. Pay close attention to the circus some will call a ‘convention’ in Charlotte.

        • Karolyn

          sc – I would challenge you to find where I have EVER put Obama on a pedestal or even written about him. Actually, I have defended him a time or two, but barely. Just because I don’t ascribe to what you do does not mean I am enamored of our President, and support him whole-heartedly. People are more complex than you (and Ben) portray them to be.

          • APN

            Karolyn…… a snail would be complex compared to you.

        • eddie47d

          Yes SC “talk is cheap” and you are one of the cheapest! I wonder why you haven’t been put on probation for your constent mischaracterizations and rabid thought process. It is looking more and more like a set up against opposing opinions and the truth be damned.

          • JeffH

        • Helen2

          Eddie 47D. I didn’t blast my own brother – he blasted me and then refused to even listen to why I believe the way I do. I said I still love him and I would like to have a relationship but in his liberal mind he can’t find that possible because he knows more than I do and I’m wrong and he’s right. I didn’t blast him I reported the facts. Big difference. Maybe you should pay closer attention to what is written instead of making assumptions.

          • Joe H.

            Helen2,
            don’t waste your time on eddie. He will believe what he wants, the facts be dammed!!! As I said to earl, just continue to love your brother in th hopes that as he gets older, he also gets wiser!!! you are not at fault!!

      • lkar

        It is the fact stupid. Liberals do not give a rats a$$ ABOUT THE FACTS! Thus, we earn the right to call them out as stupid!

        • JUKEBOX

          They simply don’t want to be CONFUSED by the facts.

        • eddie47d

          If you want Facts then start telling them instead of hiding behind fabrications. If you want credibility then why would you believe anything the Author said with his fabrications and stretching the truths. If this article is strictly humor then fine let’s move on. If you accept it as the gospel then you have an even shallower mind and wouldn’t know the truth if it hit you in the bolas. .

          • JeffH

            eddie, is it just because you don’t like Mr. Crystal’s brand of humor or that he tends to hit too close to home that makes you so imbicilic?

          • eddie47d

            No it’s the fools who accept it as the truth (most) and can’t differentiate it from the humor.

            No Eddie, its you who take out of context the true meaning Ben is writing about. He has based his writings on observing of said individuals in their natureal habitats and has provided a wealth of informative inforamtion based on his observations.

          • eddie47d

            We can all bring up individuals as the Author does frequently and label a whole segment of society as he also does. I don’t care if a Libertarian wears a clown outfit and attends a Republican convention. That doesn’t make all Libertarians clowns if you get my drift. Yet that is what the Author is doing and in this case to Liberals.

          • lkar

            I have wasted to many keystrokes to try and prove anything other than read you bitch about every article written on this site!

        Well, Karolyn, I don’t know about the “mentally defective” part, but Liberals are definitely mostly Morally Defective as evidenced by their inclinations to help themselves to other peoples’ money using Big Government as their contractors in that effort.
        I’ve provided this link many times to an article which explains what I’m saying very well, but you, Karolyn, who claims not to be “mentally defective” for some reason can’t grasp the truth of it:
        http://mises.org/daily/4125

        • mark

          More tired, libertarian propaganda from the same old Austrian School site. There is no difference between burglars, thieves, criminals – and government taxes. They are both simply robbers of the people. A ridiculous argument dressed up in Hayekian intellectualism. The vast majority of people (but not libertarians) accept the need for taxes and their benefits to society. This majority consistently votes for representatives who year after year renew and often expand these taxes. This is not the same thing as a burglar breaking into your house without your consent or vote and robbing your property – often committing violence against you and your family as well. There is a huge difference between the two which rational people understand but ideologically blinded Libertarians refuse to comprehend. Also note the moral selectivity of your author. He comes down very hard on gov’t taxing of a portion of one’s property but has little to say about the giant fraudsters on Wall Street. Because those plutocrats are capitalists, after all, and we can’t say anything bad about them unless their crimes can be directly linked to the government. Also saying that crooks can steal billions more with computer banks and a hedge fund than the average impoverished thief can with a gun might create questions of moral equivalency between capitalism and robbery. This must be avoided at all costs since Libertarian think tanks and websites (not to mention the Tea Party) are so often funded by wealthy capitalists who want to keep their own rigged and unjust game prospering for eternity.

          • DaveH

            I wouldn’t expect you, Mark, to understand that theft is theft no matter how many people vote for it. Whether the theft is performed by a gang of three or a gang of 150 million, it is still just theft. You can soothe your conscience by calling yourself a benefactor when you distribute other unwilling peoples’ money, but the truth is, Mark, that you are just too morally corrupt or too ignorant to understand the concept.

            And he’s not “my author”, Mark, anymore than he’s yours.

          • eddie47d

            You quote Von Mises every week Dave so he must be your author since Mark doesn’t approve of his writings. That is both of your choices even if his works belong to the public. Since you glazed over Mark’s comments while calling liberals “mentally defective” (several times over the months). Then since Wall Street (banks,loan companies,etc)take other peoples money and use it for their own advantage and some is very legal and some not. Then wouldn’t they (bad bankers) be worst thieves if they are distributing other peoples money into their own pockets? Now you are correct to say a thief is a thief but shouldn’t the white collar manipulators who scam people and takes several thousands and even millions be punished more severely than the guy who steals let’s say $300? The problem is that the punishment is just the opposite and our laws are very discriminatory in favor of wealthy thieves.

          • JeffH

            DaveH, as usual eddie butts in and gets it all wrong…not new!

            “You quote Von Mises every week Dave so he must be your author since Mark doesn’t approve of his writings.” Considering that mark, mark, mark’s “your author” reference meant Ben Crystal

            …and as usual, eddie continues to focus his ire on the bankers and Wall Street when it is the crony government legislators that write and pass the laws. If he truly wanted to punish these crony capitalists, he’d do better to cut off the head rather than the tail.

          • eddie47d

            Pull your head out Jeff both were referring to Mises. I see you are still trying to spin your thieving friends on Wall Street into some noble entity. Keep trying you may get it right some day.

          • DaveH

            You lie, Eddie, as usual. What else can I expect from you then crap like this — “Since you glazed over Mark’s comments while calling liberals “mentally defective” (several times over the months)”.
            Show me where, Eddie, that I have called Liberal “mentally defective”? I didn’t even say that in today’s comments. You would know that if you could read, Eddie.

            Seek Help, Eddie. You need it badly.

          • JeffH

          • Doug

            Gee Mark please show us the pipelines of money that Koch is sending to me and my Tea Party brothers and sisters. You just showed why all of us conservatives believe you liberals are mentally deficent all Tea Parties groups are not funded by no one and not owned by no one. Not like your poster boy for bad illegal alliens who has a billion dollars in his campaign chest. Which came from every Muslum and radical organization and communist unions. Show us the pipeline of money!

          • eddie47d

            Two soles covering up for each other …how quaint! More duck and cover from the bobbsey twins. Yes Dave that is why I clarified that you said it in the past and Alluded to it today. You need to get a grip on yourself Dave or at least put more clarity in your reading. I suppose you will also deny that you and Mark were referring to Mises. So no lie Dave and Jeff so put it back in your bag of tricks and maybe both of you can seek help at the same clinic and get a two for one deal..

          • DaveH

            Eddie, you lying ignoramus. I said to back up your lying statement. I don’t care if it was today or 2 years ago. Back it up, liar.

            Ditto that DaveH…and eddie, keep believing yourself despite the obvious…

          • eddie47d

            You said it at 8:31 am Dave. Why would I have to prove something that you said and right in front of your own face.

          • JeffH

            eddie, once again you tell another big fat lie. Your claim that Dave called liberals “mentally defective” is a lie and you are a liar!

            Here is exactly what DaveH says @ 8:31am
            Well, Karolyn, I don’t know about the “mentally defective” part, but Liberals are definitely mostly Morally Defective as evidenced by their inclinations to help themselves to other peoples’ money using Big Government as their contractors in that effort.

          • DaveH

            It’s difficult for me, Jeff, to believe that anybody could be so shameless as Eddie. We prove him to be wrong and a liar, time after time, yet he still denies it and comes back for more.
            Seek Help, Eddie.

          • JeffH

            Without a doubt Dave. There is a reason why his liberal brethren don’t come forward in is defense…they too know that he is an indefensable liar.

          • eddie47d

            Since you are doing the lying why should I feel shame? You need to find a better playbook.

They will be almost unbelieveably absurd , with statements such as “It’s Bushes Fault”, Repeal Governor Walker, Repeal Governor Scott and Buck Fush. You can bet they will still be blaming “George” for all of the problems of the world even 4 years after his leaving office. It would a hoot to just have a reporter photograph and report what these fools really think, from the parking lot.

    • Carlucci

      “Buck Fush”? Hmmmm…….that’s a new one. I’ll have to share that at work – ! Thanks, Pat.

      • Altaica

        Never seen that one before. That’s funny.

        • Carlucci

          Yes it is. :)

          They really funny thing is that most everything they hate Bush for doing, Obama is still doing.

          Everything you hate Obama for you cover up for Bush….If that is the game we are playing!

    Once again Ben Crystal is spot on with his analysis. One thing is for sure, all five types NEVER let the truth get in the way of their ideology!

        Karolyn, are “yuo” saying Botox Nancy is “normal”? I’m grateful to not be blessed by my Creator with yours and Nancy’s mentality. As for your lifting people up,you need to be an inspiration. Thus far I’m not impressed nor inspired.

            karolyn,
            you have been here a year, give or take a few months, and I hate to say it but I don’t see anything inspiring from you either. I’ll readily admit I’m not inspiring but then I never said I was. I do claim to have changed a few peoples minds to come over to ron Paul and I will continue in every way I can!! HE will be so much better than YOUR Abummer!!!

          • Karolyn

            MY “Abummer?” Where does that come from? Because I do not think he’s a TOTAL baddie? I do not see ANYBODY as a total loss. Every human being has a purpose and is unique; and NO ONE is totally worthless. Yes, I voted for him, only because I couldn’t vote for Hilary; and because I really thought he could CHANGE SOMETHING in Washington. Yes, how naive of me. However, I would have rather cut off my hand than vote for McCain/Palin!

          • libertytrain

            Karolyn you just said: “Every human being has a purpose and is unique; and NO ONE is totally worthless.”
            Now how did ‘cutting off your hand if you had to vote for McCain/Palin’ tie in to this statement. You got me stumped on this one. Are they exceptions to your rule?

          • Joe H

            Yes karolyn, YOUR Abummer,
            In case you haven’t noticed, almost every time somebody cuts him down, you jump up and to look detached from it you jump on them for being too judgemental. You seldom do that when anyone cuts a conservative. THAT makes him YOUR Abummer! you give yourself away in too many ways karolyn, and people notice, even if it is subconciously!!

          • APN

            Karolyn, you said: However, I would have rather cut off my hand than vote for McCain/Palin!

            Whew!!! That was a close one! Just think, if you had followed through with that idea, you wouldn’t be able to type but 1/2 of the crap you do now!

        • Karolyn

          ALSO, I have never written anythig in support of Pelosi or ANY of the democrats.

    • Altaica

      Which is worse Nancy “you have to pass the bill to see what is in it” Pelosi or the morons that passed the pathetic excuse for healthcare reform by taking her word for it. Both sides have their morons, else some of the asinine bills that have been passed, regardless of who the majority is would cease to exist. What we need are people who actual aren’t in the pocket of corporate fat cats and other groups that buy off the politicians. Saw a bumper sticker that rings true, “Want to change America, buy a politician.” Both parties are guilty. Until we have politicians that care more about the health and well being of our nation and upholding the Constitution and Bill of Rights more than their wallets, we are screwed, blued and tatooed as my Grandfather used to say.

      • gundoctor

        Words of wisdom..fruit for thought. Now this is inspiring!!

      • DaveH

        The thing is, Altaica, that the Corporate Fat Cats (the politically connected ones) can do no more than supply campaign funds to their favorite Politicians. They CAN’T make the electorate vote for those doofuses. The real problem is the uneducated electorate who vote for economy-destroying self-aggrandizing Politicians based on sound bites or face time.

    Ben Crystal’s article is both humorous and right on. An interesting observation for sure. Comments are equally right on except poor Karolyn and her “bully” tripe. Libs eternally fear confrontation of any kind lest they be labeled a “bully”,the ultimate mortal sin. They are the epitome of chickensh*t. It’s long past time to start bringing down these smelly wannabe 60′s flower children and I laud Mr. Crystal’s article for cranking up the effort. Karolyn you can go back to wetting your pants and sucking your thumb now while whining about “bullies”.

  • Fredsworld

    Right on the money again Ben! I enjoyed reading this article and said out loud “YES” many times. I would like to add one more point that all these people you describe are traitors! We seem squeamish about using this word, however I feel it accurately describes all the liberal scum that infect this great nation very accurately. God bless the Republic!

    • Altaica

      Thought this article was about Dems not liberals, seeing as Libs are in both parties just like conservatives. I find your blanket statement inaccurate, however, a political affiliation does not automatically make a person a traitor. There are plenty of loyal patriotic Dems and plenty of backstabbing traitorous Reps. Both sides have their corrupt, breaking America idiots. If you can make the statement that all Dems are traitors then the same is equally true of Reps. Sorry, but I have no party because both of them are full of corruption and pass things that are harmful to our nation. Both parties are guilty. It’s public knowledge who votes how on a bill and it’s extremely rare to see a bill passed solely by one party. Both parties are far from innocence and corruption. Until both parties are pared down of their greedy, paid off members and spend their time serving the interest of the people they were elected to represent their all liars and guilty of betraying the common citizenry.

    Wow, beating out the increasingly inane weekend yawn-a-thon videos he films in his mother’s basement and the parroted Fright Wing carbon-copy squawking points rehash he calls a column, we are now witness to the nadir of Ben Crystal’s career.

    Such a pathetic and unfunny pigeon-holing view of a solid, what, 40 per cent of the voting public could come from such a poorly-educated, failed comedienne as Mr Crystal.

    As a man of the way way way Far Left, my views are decidedly skewed, but, even taking account for that, and taking account of the many many scandalous things I have to say about you war-mongering, class-baiting Teagaggers, even I would not turn in for publication such a horrifically laughable piece!

    Really, Mr Crystal, has the well of wit from which you dredge your material run so dry as to leave us with such an amazingly puerile collection of non-amusing stereotypes? Do even the dunder-headed inbred Faux Noose gaspipe suckers laugh at this stuff? Really?

    Anyway, sorry to see that this is your goodbye piece. Leave the writing to the writers, the thinking to the thinkers, and, seriously, the humor to the humorous.

    Good luck in your next endeavor.

      Whereas, we the people agree that;
      1. The actions of our avowed enemies on 9/11/01 were the “Pearl Harbor” of our time, and
      2. The President’s first responsibility is to American citizens in America and abroad, and
      3. America’s enemies are, and will always be, a threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and
      4. The President HAS authority under the Constitution to take action to deter and prevent acts of INTERNATIONAL terrorism against the United States.
      HOWEVER, We the people shall NOT allow the President the authority to use force contrary to the Constitution of The United States of America against American citizens on American soil.

    • DaveH

      Alex calls them “war-mongering, class-baiting Teagaggers”.
      Funny, Alex, that the hero of the left — Obama — is engaging in military conflicts around the world, Libya being the most dramatic example, not to mention our continued involvement in Afghanistan. Yet, apparently the Liberal Left, in their fervor to steal other peoples’ money, have not noticed that. And there are no greater Class-Baiters than the Liberal Left. As far as Teabagging goes, I would bet money that the majority of those, who actually engage in that perverted action, are on the Liberal Left.

      • eddie47d

        Wrong again Dave. Although it is both parties who have gotten us into numerous wars of late. It’s the Republicans who shine in that department if you want to compare apples to apples. Whether you are talking about the money expended on Iraq and Afghanistan vs Libya or the number of deaths in those wars the Republicans/Conservatives are still way ahead. None of those wars produced any self righteous morality so this is not in defense of Democrats/Liberals. We don’t need anymore wars especially these 10 year extravaganzas which have made us less safe and more broke.

        • Doug

          Eddie please put your 11th grad text books down. Do some reseach and you will find which party was in office when we went to war and when we went to war which party got us out of war. Also which party was in the WH when we lost wars!

          • eddie47d

            Nixon expanded the Vietnam War and Ford was President when we lost. Clinton was President when we won the Serbian War. Obama is getting us out of Iraq and won in Libya.Reagan lost in Lebanon. H. Bush did win in the Gulf War so what is your point smartazz!

          • DaveH

            His point, Ignoramus, is that you don’t have a clue what you’re talking about.
            If you did, Eddie, you wouldn’t have said Obama won in Libya. What did he win, further destabilization of the Middle East? Further trampling of the Constitution? What did Obama accomplish in Libya besides simply taking a side?
            I still marvel at the fact that you apparently think you have something to add to the conversation when in fact you are ignorant about history, ignorant about comprehending English, and ignorant about Freedom. Seek Help, Eddie.

          • eddie47d

            I have never said I supported the Libyan incursion so you are the IGNORAMOUS Dave. When a War is over the President in charge is the winner of that war. Irregardless if the war was right or wrong. You are shameless Dave Pure shameless!!!!

            And where did I say you supported the Libyan War?
            Good Grief, it’s like debating a 5-year old child.

        • Brad

          Eddie,

          Lets take a look at the past 100 year’s of military history this nation has been involved in.

          WWI, Woodrow Wilson (D) wanted the US out of Europes fight but we supplied arms and material to Britton until one of our ships was sunk by a german u-boat. The US then declaired war in 1917, cost 57,476 souls lost.

          WWII, Franklin D Roosevelt (D) wanted the US out of Europe and Asia, but supplied arms and material to Britton via the lend lease act. Surprise attack on Dec 7, 1941 the Japanese attacked the US Navy’s Pacific fleet at Pearl Harbor. The US declairs war on Dec 8, 1941 on Germany declairs war on US the same day. Cost to the US 405,000 + killed from all sources.

          Korea, Harry S Trueman (D) he over saw the end of WWII. Came to the rescue of South Korea when united nations forces were being driven south by North Korean forces trying to unite the country under communism. 1950-1953 it cost us 54,229 souls.

          Vietnam, Lyndon B Johnson (D), evan though Kennedy got the ball rolling on a limited basis Johnson ramped it up over a so called attack in the gulf of Tonkin 1964. By 1972 Nixon got US combat troops out of Vietnam but the communists taking the country over in 1975 all total it cost the US 58,178 lost souls.

          Grenada, Ronald Reagan (R), US invaded to protect our interests in the region and prevent the cuban government a foot hold in another country. US cost 19 souls.

          Panama, George H.W. Bush (R), captured a drug trafficker Manuel Noreiga, cost in US lives 23

          Gulf War same president, after Saddam Hussiens arm invaded the US along with other coalition nations forced Iraq’s arm back to Iraq. Cost in US souls 258.

          Somalia, Bill Clintom (D), after trying to provide relief efforts to the people of Somalia the warlords started fighting our troops. Cost in US souls 43

          Now for the war on terror which includes GWB and BHO a total cost and still counting of us souls lost to date is 6,280. SO from my understanding we have lost more American lives under Democrats during a time of conflict then we have under Republican leadership.

          I don’t normaly trust Wikipedia sources but they have the most comprehensive statistics I can find, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_military_casualties_of_war enjoy eddie.

        • DaveH

          It doesn’t really matter to me whether it’s Republicans or Democrats who are Empire Building around the world, Eddie you ignoramus, but don’t tell me I’m wrong when the real problem is your severe lack of reading comprehension.
          As to your statement that Republicans are the war-mongers:
          The Spanish American war occurred under a Republican president, but he was pushed into the war by pressure from the Democratic Party.
          The First World War was under a Democrat President Woodrow Wilson.
          The Second World War was under a Democrat Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
          The Korean War was started under Democrat Harry Truman.
          The US involvement in Vietnam started under Democrat John Kennedy and was greatly accelerated by Democrat Lyndon Johnson.

          Is that enough for you, Eddie, you fool?

          • eddie47d

            Was WWII a necessity Dave and Brad? Sure part of it was a set up but was it necessary to keep us from speaking German? We can play war games all day long because there are few wars that I have ever agreed with. So to hell with the Republicans and Democrats in most of their incursions. Dave does get cute and red faced in his name calling though.

          • DaveH

            What are you talking about, Eddie? I didn’t say anything about the necessity of any of the wars.
            Are you trying to put words in my mouth again?

          • DaveH

            And I will admit, Eddie, that sometimes I get embarrassed by my responses to you because I was raised to be tolerant of mentally retarded people.

          • Brad

            Eddie, one thing I have noticed, you never admit when you are wrong and have been proven wrong. Was our involvement in WWII necessary, some will argue no it wasn’t others will say yes it was. WWII did do one thing for this country, WWII brought us out of the great depression and transformed our nation into an industrial super power the world ever knew. From 1932 until the end of hostillities in 1945 ruffly 50 million people lost their lives, the war touched just about every single continent. War is never necessary, its the political elites who put us in those positions or the radicals who force change on others, so, was WWII necessary in my opinion yes. Know what was the trade off, we helped get rid of hitler, moussolini and tojo but we got stalin and the cold war for the next 46 year’s.

          • DaveH

            Actually, Brad, that is a myth. World War II did not get us out of the Depression. We got out of the Depression because Government Spending was greatly reduced after the war. Read this:
            http://www.thefreemanonline.org/featured/the-great-depression-and-world-war-ii/

            Note that logically wars create bad economies by destroying assets. The bombs, missiles, guns, ships, jeeps, tanks, etc. cost money and diminish natural resources. The bombs, missiles, and guns destroy other assets. The war machines waste oil and gasoline. How could war possibly be good for an economy? Imagine how much wealth we would all have if it wasn’t being devoted to wasteful wars? To believe that wars are good for economies is to suspend all logic.

    Thats ritht they are giving OBAMA the power to legally kill Americans in America, jail Americans for no reason — forever. Authorize military action on Americans to DISARM us all.

    If this law passes we are fully taken over by the banksters, and let the resistence be formed, and the war begin, because it certainly will.

          We Are All Terrorists Now »
          The U.S. Senate is considering a bill that would designate the whole world, including U.S. territory, as a battlefield and subject American citizens in the United States to indefinite military detention without the benefit of trial and to attacks along the lines of the drone assassination of supposed terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki. More »

          You guys need to be more attentive to this devious government and what they are doing. You and your families will be a part of this take over and you will not have any say so in what happens from then on. The present administrators represent, in reality, a hostile takeover of America and for some insane reason, some of us refuse to see and understand that point. Those individuals in Afghanistan and Iraq know what it is like to see what a Predator Drone can do. With this piece of legislation before the Senate, if passed and signed into law, we will have the opportunity as well. Things are being slipped in below the radar every day and Leftist and Rightist need to stop bickering and come together to bring a screeching halt to Washington. We are too distracted with all of this and it will be our downfall. As for Ben Crystal, he gets paid for his column and that is fine. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would be out of business too if we all came together and began ignoring them.

          Under the ‘worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial’ provision of S.1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which is set to be up for a vote on the Senate floor this week, the legislation will “basically say in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who supports the bill.

    You made the mistake of believing rational discussion was possible here. It’s not. When you read an article with so much misrepresentation and sentences that cannot be made without nasty rhetoric and attacks then the best you can do is state your position and hope beyond hope that someone is reading it. Really reading it for the position presented and not just who you are. Converts are being maid daily.
    My personal observation is this writer is classic Tea Party, who believes using demagoguery, shouting over his opponent and using “in your face” tactic makes them the winner. In truth, they are marginalizing themselves and talk only among themselves. Keep the discussion rational, and they will become a very small minority.

    A bit of truth sprinkled with exageration is what makes satire funny. Liberals seem to only have a problem when this is directed at them. When I want to have some fun, although the fun quickly turns to head-banging as you try to explain simple concepts about our economy and government, I go comment on a few Liberal blogs, like Care2. You see these people with purely fabricated, skewed views of conservatives.

    The constant name calling, generalizations about “rethuglicans and their incestuous ties to big business, their racism and bigotry is constant. Even when confronted with factual evidence, from sometimes Liberal sources, they deny it, call it Faux news rhetoric as they attempt to show-off to their fellow posting Libs. It’s almost like a contest to see who can trash the best.

    I get the same there as you give Libs here, “Why are you here? Why don’t you go hang on blogs ‘with your own kind’?” Because that is not nearly as much fun as pushing the readily availble abundance of buttons they have to push.

    They are reeling from the disappointment that is Obama and it is truely killing them inside, but they keep their chin up and defend him with personal attacks, distraction and flagrant lying.

    What is amuzing about this is that the Mayor of Charlotte promised the town that it will receive several millions of dollars for entertaining the Dems. I think this has backfired. North Carolina is a Free to Work Stste and the National Unions are quite upset about it and have told that their members shall only support hotels, restaurants, and other services that are unionized. Already all of the printing for the conference is being completed in Washington DC. I wonder where they are going to sleep and eat?

        To my knowlege, all the Southern states are ‘right to work’ states. That’s the reason why, after WWII, so many companies closed up their Norhtern factories and reopened them in the South.

            It’s not that some companies wouldn’t like moving to S.C. Boeing built a brand new multi-million dollar manufacturing plant in S.C. They specifically built it there because it was a right to work state. Well, our favorite Kenyan decided that since Boeing’s main office was in a Union Shop State that their brand new plant had to hire Union employees only. This being the case, Boeing decided not to open the plant and would rather take the million dollar loss instead of hiring Union. Boeing is negotiating with the NLRB about this ridiculous ruling. Obama is a scoundrel.

    In the age of dinosaurs, when I was in elementary school, I had in September on average about 3 schoolyard fights. I only fought when bullied and even if I lost I never had to fight the same bully twice. If caught both kids were punished. The only fights thereafter were kids who refused to hit backA good many of those kids went on to become hippies , draftdodgers, and left for Sweden, Canada, and any other place where.no one would ask them anything like hard questions they are the grandparents of the OWS troops.

Sites like these should be about having a healthy conversation or debate about the issues in our country. You can’t have that if everyone is simply agreeing with everyone else and telling everyone who disagrees to go away. Life doesn’t work that way and no one will ever come to a consensus nor will any change ever be made in this country if we refuse to speak to each other about the issues.

          • DaveH

            That works, Kevin, only until people start the personal attacks. And the people who usually start us in that direction are the Liberals.

          • kevinnc

            You might want to read through some of the posts in this forum then, Dave. Quite a few of the negative posts were by people who claim to be conservatives who attacked people with little provocation.

          • DaveH

            I’m betting, kevinnc, that I’ve read a lot more of the comments than you have. And my observation has been that the name-calling usually starts with the Liberals.

          • eddie47d

            Wrong again Dave …just the opposite and you are one of them.

      • DaveH

        Funny, Eddie the man with no credibility talking about others’ lack of it.

        • eddie47d

          I don’t see much constraint coming from you Dave. So much hypocricy …so little time to call you all out!

  • Wim Vonk

    Very silly article. Just sho3w the author hates anything Liberal. Apart from a significant percentage of people in the US that means he does not like most of the people in the Western world. The US is becoming more and more isolated. History show that many Democratic governments have done well in the US. Roosevelt, Kennedy, Clinton to name a few.

    • Monte

      Very silly comment, Wim. Just shows what a liberal hater would think of any who dare oppose their dictatorial, leftist control. Every democratic president since and including FDR should have been exiled to a communist country. If you plan to worship your leftist idols, you are at the wrong site. We spit upon them here.

      • Kevin

        So you’re calling him a hater while saying that you will spit on anyone who is a liberal? Kinda hypocritical don’t you think?

        • Monte

          As a liberal you have mentioned two things you know a great deal about through plenty of practise: hate and hypocracy. You are a delusional bunch of hypocrites.

          • Kevin

            Are you denying that you posted that you spit upon liberals? It’s pretty clear in your post. The only delusional one seems to be you if you are trying to say otherwise.

          • Monte

            Kevin, find someone else to annoy. Your childish antics are pathetic.

          • Kevin

            So basically, you just like to call people “haters” and “hypocrites”, but if anyone points out the reality of your behavior you take your toys and run home? Who’s really being the childish one?

          • Joe H.

            Kevin,
            No, he said we spit on leftist IDOLS!!! Comprehension, dude, comprehension!!!

          • Kevin

            Well that makes all the difference JoeH! That means his comment isn’t hateful at all, right? He’s spitting on leftist idols, not liberals – even though he equates liberals and leftists in his post – spitting on people isn’t hateful at all. My bad. I must have been raised poorly and led to believe that spitting on people was wrong. I’ll go and speak to my parents about this lapse immediately! Thanks for setting me straight, I’ll go spit on some people in the most friendly way possible.

        • DaveH

          Okay, Kevin, after reading all of your comments on this page, I must point out that you’ve so far devoted all your comments to personal attacks. Perhaps you could change and give us an example of factual discussions instead?

          • kevinnc

            Pointing out Monte’s personal attack is not a personal attack. Monte responded with further personal attacks and I merely continued to point out the truth. Monte could not handle that.

          • DaveH

            I’m not defending Monte’s name-calling, kevin. I’m saying that you aren’t practicing what you preach. Name-calling isn’t the only form of personal attack.
            Do you need me to elaborate?

          • Kevin

            Please, enlighten me, how did I attack Monte or anyone ele?

        • Average Joe

          Kevin,

          “So you’re calling him a hater while saying that you will spit on anyone who is a liberal?”

          Actually, the word “liberal” never appears anywhere in his comment….read much?…comprehend less?

          You live and learn. At any rate, you live.

  • CSAClay

    Folks, the bottom line is that we need to clean house in the Government. We need to cut the Federal Gov by at least 50 % and give back power to the states that the Traitor Lincoln took away when he illegally waged war on the South. Since 1865 we have been sinking in a whole. The only person that can save this country is Ron Paul.
    If people would just listen to the man you would hear him talk about all of the issues that have been discussed here. The existing Gov. and lame ass media are scared to death of him because they know if he wins it will be WE THE PEOPLE once again instead of we the government.
    Pay attention people because time is running out for America.

    After watching the debates of the Republican Superstars I can see why Mr. Chrystal sounds a little nervous and resorts to all the name calling and slanderous remarks to try and fire up his base.If that’s all the conservatives have to offer it will be an easy victory for the Democrats with their intellect and winning spirit and that will make this a greater nation.Instead of name calling and trying to be a comedian, perhaps solutions and ideas would be a better tactic to apply her.So many of your followers are clueless to reality in today’s world.

    • Monte

      Jopa, tell it to someone who cares what a deluded liberal thinks. You’re wasting your time here.

      • APN

        …. did someone say a liberal could “think”???? SHAZAAM!!!!!!!!!!!

  • JeffH

    An FYI – unrelated but just in…OBAMA’s at his lowest approval point, even lower than Carter.

    It’s been a slow, steady decline but President Barack Obama‘s job approval rating has finally dipped below Jimmy Carter’s, earning Obama the worst approval rating of any president at this stage of his term in modern history.

    Gallup’s daily presidential job approval index put the current president‘s job approval rating at 43 percent compared to Carter’s 51 percent.

    To make matters worse, Gallup reports that Obama’s overall job approval rating ranks among the worst in American political history, averaging 49 percent. Only three former presidents have had a worse average rating at this stage: Carter, Ford, and Harry S. Truman.

    Our scorn is likely one of the few things these types deserve and have earned.

  • jopa

    I must agree with the poll numbers also and I do not support the Bush tax cuts.Obama does not even have my support currently, however he can change that with the stroke of a pen and he is the best choice for America today.Ron Paul just doesn’t have enough backing from the electorate in supporters or money.Oh I almost forgot that the mention of polls is meaningless on this site.Sorry Jeffh, but you tried anyway.

    • DaveH

      Most of your comments, Jopa, are meaningless.

    • JeffH

      jopa, you’re about as sharp as eddie. Speaking of meaningles, it’s nice to know that you “currently” don’t support O’man but with the stroke of a pen that could all change. You sound a lot like a politician, say mabye more like a Romney or a Gingrich…they change like the wind too.

      • http://deleted Claire

        Polls? Looks like Ron Paul is at the bottom. And the crooks are the frontrunners. I see these polls and wonder WTH. Seems like the more unethical garbage a fonrtrunner has, the higher they climb. Unbelievable situation. I will NOT vote for Gingrich, Romney, Cain, Perry–none of them. I will write-in my vote for Ron Paul.

        • JeffH

          Hear Hear! :)

        Poor Jeff has a hard time commenting without bringing up my name. So much unbelievable infatuation for one man to have. Always heads straight for the name calling or some disparaging remark.

      Yep, with a stroke of a pen, your little mind of mush could be changed! Looking for another free meal ticket, correct?

  • http://PersonalLibertyDigest John

    As a recovering liberal, altho not entirely, the one quote Ben stated on liberalism that rings true with me is the following:

    “The egghead laments 9-11, but only because it made life harder for Muslims.”

    It kinda sounds like Liberals love humanity … but hate people … and those people are fellow US citizens many southern and all conservative.

    Liberals preach the wrongs of our society and advocate change … it’s amazing since they live in the only country that the masses of the world have been beating a path to get a shot at our way of living for hundreds of years. The disturbing part is that they and their leftist cronies will never / ever give up on changing this country … even though most of the social change in the last 50 years has been troublesome and costly they never give up … I give them credit for keeping their focus on the continued distruction of a once great nation … just don’t understand why they see conservatives as fascist/nazi dictators and not themselves when they freely acuse conservatives of wishing for earlier times to return back to the countries dark ages … but conservatives only admit to trying to slow or stop the advance of liberal mindset for socialism and it’s associated exorbitant costs and resultant lowered standard of living!

    • JeffH

      Thank you John.

            In this morning’s paper it said Blago could get 15-20 years. That’s a laugh. He may get 4, if that. Presidential pardons–look at the past pardons. The future pardons will be no better.

  • RightGunner

    Ben I enjoy your articles and videos very much, and I enjoyed this one. However, since I am a real conservative, as opposed to the neo-jerk kind, I believe you could have some fun by writing a similar piece on the Group attending the Republican convention.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Average Joe

    OMG, it just hit me….My cat sleeps about 20 hours a day. He has his food prepared for him. He can eat whenever he wants, 24/7/365. His meals are provided at no cost to him. He visits the Dr. Once a year for his checkup, and again during the year if any medical needs arise. For this he pays nothing, and nothing is required of him.

    He lives in a nice neighborhood in a house that is much larger than he needs, but he is not required to do any upkeep. If he makes a mess, someone else cleans it up. He has his choice of luxurious places to sleep. He receives these accommodations absolutely free.

    He is living like a king, and has absolutely no expenses whatsoever. All of his costs are picked up by others who go out and earn a living every day. I was just thinking about all this, and suddenly it hit me like a brick in the head,

    My cat is a Democrat!

  • http://Boblivingston Lyle McDaniel

    The most obvious thing that comes out of these discussions is, that it is so very rare you find a liberal with a sense of humor.

  • bob wire

    I struggle though this read thinking, Who cares what happens in the Carolinian’s. ~ But is was North Carolina and not South.

    The final paragraph being as excellent summary of hillbilly stereotyping and how the human mind tends to mirror self reflection.

    “Liberals are fond of overly simplistic generalizations; I am fond of making liberals sputter like preteen girls whose parents confiscated their iPhones. What better way is there to do so than to hold up the mirror and give them (and you) a look at themselves, warts — or fleas — and all?”

    You have revealed more of yourself Ben Crystal then the people that you write about.

    But to your defense, the Carolin’s hold a people like no other found it the US unless it be Alabama.

    It is funny how each of our states were formed and home to peoples so intrinsically different in nature and makeup. Status Quo and Common Place varies greatly across our large nation of free men and women.

    I love them all, but not for the sames reasons.

    The difference between you and I Crystal, is that I can celebrate our differences while you seem to find it impossible.

    You really don’t believe in individual freedom and liberty but for yourself and like minds.

    It’s a mental thing. I remember getting out of the Army in 1970 and attempting to blend back into the civilian population. It was hard to do, people dress weird and would walk anywhere and anyway they wanted to! It was so confusing! If it had been up to me, I’d had them all walking in information and wearing the same color. I was still a “programed” military man.

    You “SEE” what your programing “ALLOWS” you to see Ben.

    • Karolyn

      Actually, bob, Ben takes the path of least resistance in stereotyping groups of people rather than trying to understand and celebrate our differences. Wouldn’t it be a terribly boring world if we were all the same?

      • libertytrain

        Actually Bob apparently missed Ben was discussing the Democratic National Convention to be held in Charlotte sure to attract every description he wrote. Not discussing only the people of the Carolinas.
        I still find it remarkable the offense taken by his caricatures. Descriptions Too close to home for some folks? I’ve seen caricatures of the things I believe in done oftentimes and with a whole lot more piss and vinegar and a good measure of contempt thrown in on just network news or shows like the view.

    • APN

      I thought that was “Walking in formation?” How do you walk in information? Seems to me if you did, you would destroy all the zeros and ones. That is binary, base 2, if you didn’t get it.

      Oh well, SHAZAM, I get your point Bob, that must be an enlightened FREE thinking thing! I put emphasis on the FREE part.

  • http://deleted Claire

    The above article could apply to the GOP convention too. There are unbelievable characters in both.

    Thanks, Claire. Your balanced views are always a breath of fresh air! :-) How are those babies of yours?

  • LTB

    I agree with most of these obsevations and think there are better explanations for the “entitlement crowd and social leftist”. I hope I will be out of Charlotte by that time or at the least not working downtown. The “in your face harrassment” and racial overtones coming from the DNC are not what I refer to as normal Americans. I don’t think I could tolerate the crude and rudeness crap they will be posting all over the place. As an investor and entrepreneur, I will not look favorable upon Charlotte in the future for pursuing and hosting this debacle. I hope they can see the number of empty building downtown and emminating outward everywhere today as going to increase as the offended Americans move away and take their money and skills with them. To sad for the city. It had promise up until 12 years ago. It will go the way of Detroit, MI within 10 years. Just looking at the existing empty and more emptying of downtown buildings and any business location near downtown points to this eventual path. If they continue to host the DNC convention, the demise is inevitable.

  • jopa

    LTB;You give yourself just too much credit.I don’t think anyone in Charlotte will notice your absence and will appreciate the money that is coming in from the DNC.Your whole post is just silliness.

  • Ridge Runner

    I just don’t under stand these liberal intitlement minded people.The ones ihat want every thing given to them and the ones that want to give them every thing.Who bred these people,who raised these people and why wasn’t they instilled with pride to take care of them selfs instead of being a burden and depend on some one else. Maybe this started out by these dope headed baby factorys and their off spring. I know that a lot of people for some reason or other need help and you give them a hand up but you shouldn’t have to keep them up unless they are handicaped.These people should have been instructed on how to make a life not not how to destroy their life.these people are one of the biggest reasons the country is going broke.I for one don’t want to pay for every body’s misfits from all over the world.If you are of a sound mind and a sound body and you don’t want to live a decent life and pull your own weight then don’t need io be here.We the people have let these type people vote these type people into our government and now we are suffering from what they have and are doing to the country.This comment may make a lot of people mad but i can’t see any other raeson for what is going on.It is right back on our own feet we done it.

  • Jimbo

    Dare I say it? Don’t forget the perpetually ANGRY women who hate men, or like theirs to act castrated. They find a home with the Democrats too.

    I keep wondering how many Democrats are with the party simply because they like the word, “democrat”. Like a former co-worker who wouldn’t vote unless there was a Kennedy running. Didn’t matter what the man stood for, only that he was a Kennedy.

    When I was in college, student activists occasionally knocked on my dorm room door. When I asked what the protests were about, no one ever seemed to know. They just thought everyone should protest! I think it’s the same way with the current crop of Democrats. Touchy feeling emotion motivates them. Critical thought processes aren’t convenient.
