Whew, thank goodness. Back to normal: Wall St. Sends Cash to G.O.P.

It's just been too weird to have all of these Democrats in bed with bankers when it's the Republicans over the years who've really kept them warm at night.

In a Message to Democrats, Wall St. Sends Cash to G.O.P.


John Jost said...

A bit of true common sense:

"While the GOP's rhetorical fidelity is to small government and a big military, it has for decades been operationally committed to no philosophy other than perpetual war, upward redistribution of wealth, the defense of corporate power and white Christian identity politics."

Wow, bingo.

Kevin Scheunemann said...



Lets look at the Democrats. They are committed to an operationally wasteful big government, big military (while saying they want a smaller one), upward redistribution of wealth, defense of coporate power, bailout of coporate power, overt black identity politics (when most people really don't care about race identity), have no sound foreign policy, molly coddle terrorists, allowed Iran to get the bomb, and have no sound economic policy to create wealth and insure the U.S's world economic leadership.

Republicans look like a much lessor evil next to the big government crazyness of Democrats.

Can I get a follow up "bingo"?

Mpeterson said...

The difference, Kevin, is that none of what you've said is actually true.


Grant said...

Better spelling would ensure lesser craziness.

Does Kevin care about accuracy, truth or reality any more? Is he ever willing to learn anything? It's hard to believe that he isn't a Poe, posting mocking parodies of Right-wing silliness.

DanBack said...

Free Lunch: No. He cares a lot about playing games, calling people either liberal or conservative, and making uninformed decisions though. He is really talented at those things.

Kevin Scheunemann said...


None of what I said?

O.K. I'll Play.

What policies do the Democrats encourage to create wealth?

Democrats didn't bail out large corporate interests?

Obama's current foreign policy is sound? (does this mean you now support both wars?)

I am by no means a Republican apologist, but you need to look at the posterior emination that is today's Democratic party as the interest of "fairness" and "diversity".

John Jost said...

Dear fellow bloggers:

I pledge that I will never buy any of Ann Coulter's books, never again read a single line she wrote, and never again answer any of Kevin's comments. I have seen that it is wise.

Off to watch Winter Olympics fare.

I found your first post interesting.

Why does it bother you that most of what you posted can also describe Democrats?

The quote appears to have a "giddyness" when it comes to ripping on Republicans, but then I make a similar case for Democrats doing almost all the same (or similar) things...why does it not make you as giddy?

Do I need to sanctify myself in some manner for what I've done?

I'm pretty slow on the whole political correctness religion. I'm more of an athiest on the political correctness cosmology.

Mpeterson said...

Oh, now that's a hoot Kevin. Ayn Randians like you are the Jesuits of ideological correctness.

But you keep dodging this bullet: have you forsworn Ayn for Christ?

Kevin Scheunemann said...

Just curious,

If I admitted to being a disciple of either one...

which one would cause more political attack dogs?

(I'd want to choose the one with more political attack dogs.)

If I chose to be a disciple of the global warming religion, would that earn me praise, adulation, and a healthy government grant?

This would help me, finally, delineate the "favored vs. unfavored" leftist public square religion list!

Many, many, thanks in advance for the clarification.
