Dear Readers: A quick post to wish everyone a happy start to the Halloween Week. Horemheb, the Young Prince and I are off to the Poway Rodeo for the Tournament of the Phoenix. It should be quite an experience for this Egyptophile!
Meanwhile, I have some great posts to share from some of my own Knights in Shining Armor!
From Captain Capitalism – his thoughts on the continuing battle with extreme feminists: Why Communism Killed the American Muse
While a higher percentage of my posts could be deemed “Manosphere” the reality is that economics and The Manosphere (or the fight against feminism) are actually one and the same. And not only are they one and the same, I contend the most cutting-edge, evolutionary developments in economics are not in central banking, nor international finance, nor the demise of fiat currency. The furthest, most deepest front lines of this economic war between communism and freedom is where The Manosphere and feminism are duking it out.
Right off the bat it is not obvious how battling feminism is related, let alone, part of economics, let alone “the cutting-edge” of economics. And in all intellectual honesty it wasn’t until I sat down to figure out this post did I realize how they are indeed one and the same. But what originally alluded me to think the two were related was the fact my “transition” from economics to “Manosphere” was very natural. So natural, I didn’t even realize it was happening. So natural my readers didn’t know it was happening. All of the sudden my blog, as well as others, were writing about both economics and the Manosphere, suggesting the two were at minimum VERY closely related and tied together, at least philosophically.
I ask Democrats to pause a moment and think about what their support for Obama means for their party. While everyone gets some partisan fever at this time in the election cycle, I think that Democrats have a lot to lose with Obama’s re-election. Here are a few key issues.
- ACA. The Affordable Care Act will continue to be an albatross around the Democratic party’s collective neck. Time will reveal all of the sops to big insurance and big pharma that went into the bill. It will eat into the party’s desired reputation as being against the excesses of big business. When your party is seen as the party of both Big Business and Big Government you are toast. Look at the 2006 Congressional elections and what happened to Republicans. Opinion polls had shifted and found the GOP to be seen as the party of big government in polls and they got shellacked.
- ACA. Again, because you know in your heart that countless regulations embedded in the law will drive up the cost of health care and tarnish government with the same heartless image that is now enjoyed by the insurance companies. Being tied to the eventual demise of quality health care is not in the Democratic party’s best interest. You would be better served by a repeal, after which you could propose a much simpler bill that prevented discrimination due to pre-existing conditions, guaranteed portability and subsidized insurance for those above the poverty line but still in lower income brackets. Even though I don’t agree with this platform, it is guaranteed to be more popular than the ACA.
- Kill lists, drone hits, never ending involvement in overseas wars. Obama has sucked all the oxygen out of your heartfelt desire to be anti-war. But how can the Democrats do so when they have a President that is continuing huge portions of the Bush foreign policy. In fact, the Obama National Security Strategy could almost have been written by Rumsfeld.
Kevin Dujan — AN ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT MUST READ ESSAY ON THE UPCOMING DEMOCRATIC CIVIL WAR!!! DOOM ANTIDOTE: The Democrats’ Civil War Between the Factions of the Clinton Restoration and the Obama Remnant Begins November 7th, 2012
I’m amazed that few conservative writers seem to understand this, but the Democrat Party has been engaged in a protracted Civil War for many years now…I’d say going back to at least 2004. This internal struggle culminated in 2008, with the Leftist faction shunting aside the moderate Clintons and instead insisting Barack Obama be the party’s standard bearer in the last election (because the Left knew Hillary would do what she thought best as president, not what the Left demanded of her…while Obama would be a weaker and more malleable figurehead of a president). The Left held absolute power from 2008-2010 and did every crazy thing it wanted to do, after being exiled in the political wilderness for many years and FINALLY (at long last) having the ability to put into real-life practice every insane scheme these people concocted in academia since the Carter administration.
We all know what happened next, because Americans saw how far Left the Democrats veered and punished the party at the polls in the midterm elections. That was just a warmup, though, because on November 6th voters are going to decimate the Democrat Party with the largest rebuke in modern American political history. The Left’s pretending this isn’t happening because there never was a “Plan B” for these people; their whole operating agenda is predicated on the fact that the lefties are so much smarter than the rest of the country and that the way they intend to transform America (into a more European socialist style of country where the government decides what’s best for people) must be forced on Americans so that they can ultimately see how great it all is. The Left has normally maneuvered behind the scenes in quiet ways, pushing a little socialism here and the destruction of family units there…but under Obama they were allowed to not only let their masks slip but remove them completely and go absolutely hog wild during the Obama regime. The Left never anticipated defeat because it thought once it had the levers of power it would never allow them to slip away again…and the Left didn’t anticipate Americans YANKING back that power (and hopefully never again in our lifetimes allowing the Left to have it again).
K-T has a graphic that illustrates the LOGICAL CONCLUSION TO OBAMA’S CAMPAIGN FOR WOMEN’S VOTES. Warning — the graphic is THE SCARIEST ILLUSTRATION I COULD SHOW YOU DURING THE 2012 HALLOWEEN SEASON. WC Varones offers another graphic, also suited to the season but a little more humorous.And Beers with Demo shares an awesome political cartoon that relates to an absolutely horrendous tragedy and the fact we have an “Invisible Press”.
Finally, at his Deadliest Blogger Military History Page, Word Warrior offers the next installment of his “Age of Arthur” series — showing what a group a real heroes can do!
Arthur had arrived at Badon Hill, come fresh from his victories in the North against outlaws and Angle pirates (remembered by Nennius as the 10th and 11th of “Arthur’s Twelve Battles”: the Battles of the River Tribruit and the Hill of Agned). Atop Solsbury/Badon Hill, he could clearly see the Saxons swarming below the walls of Badon, less than two miles away.
Finally, to all my heroes out there:
