“Helen Keller” Partisans

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/10/17

By now, everyone knows about Helen Keller. She became blind and deaf in her early childhood. She eventually struggled to defeat these set-backs and she succeeded. She is a much stronger person than I could ever be. So my decision to use the term “‘Helen Keller’ partisan” is not so glowing to her. My apologies.

So, what is a “Helen Keller” partisan? A “Helen Keller” partisan is someone who is willfully blind and deaf to the myriad of facts swirling around them. A perfect example of this type of partisan is Perry, a commentator over on Common Sense Political Thought.

I made a comment about how the left had “Bush=Hitler” signs, wished for the assassination of Bush, hoped Cheney would have a heart-attack and die, wanted Clarence Thomas to eat lots of eggs and build up cholesterol so he would die. Perry claimed he had never seen or heard any of this and demanded I give citations or admit I was lieing.

When I gave irrefutable evidence of all the above, Perry was silent. He moved to another thread and continued his Helen Keller routine. I went over there and pointed out his Helen Keller routine and linked back to where I gave the evidence he was Helen Keller-ing. Again, Perry was silent about it. And again, Perry moved on to another thread.

Recently, Perry tried to claim I was “making [stuff] up again” and I called him out on that, referring to my linkage I gave in reference to his Helen Keller demands. He, in his arrogant Helen Keller ignorance, said he refuses to read my “foolishness” despite many evidences he has indeed read what I wrote. He just refuses to see or hear facts that will totally destroy the house of cards that is his leftist partisan position.

I Hate Parasites

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/10/17

I have a huge problem that could prevent me from getting my golden ticket. I have hate in my heart. I hate parasites. And something I hold dear has at least one parasite. And right now I have to spend what precious little money I make to feed that parasite or that thing I hold dear will die. How I hate parasites!

Why don’t I pay to get rid of the parasite(s)? I don’t have the money or proper time to do it. So, I have to pay to feed the blasted parasite(s). Oh, yes, I am totally heartless and inconsiderate in forcing my Camaro to suffer from the parasite(s) because I don’t have the time or money to deal with the problem.

Okay, the cat’s out of the bag. My car has at least one parasite. During the week, I can drive my car back and forth to work. But, since I’m a home-body, my car sits on the weekends. Monday afternoon comes and it’s time to head out to work to start the new work-week. And I have to get my car jump-started. Sometimes my windshield wipers quit working. I pull out the fuse and put it back in and the wipers start working again.

I took my car to Autozone for a free battery/elec sys check. The new battery is good. The voltage regulator is good. I am getting very strong amperage. So all the charging system works very well. That means there is at least one electric parasite that is drawing down the battery when the car is not running. And that means I need to take the car to a shop when I’m sleeping or at work and spend money I don’t have to chase down the problem. Or, I drive the car a couple times each weekend day to keep the battery charged, spending money (I don’t have) on gasoline.

I’ll have to take option two at this time.

Did I mention I hate parasites?
