Postmodernism Sucks

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/06/25

… informed reasoning right out of the Leftists’ minds. Ravi Zacharias hits the nail on the head in this video.

I have repeatedly railed against the Leftists for their absolute refusal to examine context and for their continuous historical revisionism, their refusal to examine histo-facts. I had not even considered the anti-intellectual postmodern movement and its ramifications, but that’s really where the problem lies.

Watch the whole video. Ravi tells a hilarious tale at the end, but it nails the postmodern Leftists (redundancy) squarely between the eyes. Thanks to aotc for the video.

Sidenote: Unfortunately, all of aotc’s comments will start out in moderation due to her moniker fighting my moderation filter. But anyone who types out my name will also run into the moderation filter, so there’s that.

Congressman Kelly Hits Hypocritical Democrats Hard

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/06/25

The previous Republican wave election, 1994, saw a large number of Conservative freshmen hit the stage. In 1995, after the wave election was seated, the House of Representatives went into session and commenced with their standard Committee hearings. And Democrats thought it was business as usual. A particular incident is burned into my memory. During one particular Committee hearing, a Democrat was busy giving his speech, where he was using boilerplate scare tactics and lies about the “meanie” Republicans. A Freshman Republican got out of his seat, walked over to the lying Democrat, pointed down at a section of the stack of papers in front of the Democrat. And the Democrat immediately shut up.

It was a banner day. It was definitely a shot across the bow. These Freshman Republicans were not going to lie down and take it. They were not going to “go along to get along” as the Democrats ran their typical lie-and-smear-and-fear-monger campaign. These Freshman Republicans were going to call the Democrats on their “life as usual” lies. And that lasted for a while, until the Statist Republicans once again took over — especially after Statist George W Bush got elected.

Enter 2010. Another wave election. This time even larger than the historic 1994 elections. This time a grass-roots wave election instead of the Top-Down wave of 1994. And the Committees of 2011. And we have a new banner day as obvious TEA Party Republican Representative Mike Kelly from Pennsylvania utterly crushes the Democrats.

I’m trying to understand the criticism of Mr. Ryan’s budget from the side that didn’t even have the courage to pass a budget. To sit there now and rail about Mr. Ryan’s budget, about how it’s so ineffective and how it doesn’t work is, to me, the greatest, most hypocritical statement I’ve heard since coming here. And I’ve got to tell you something… I’m not speaking as a Republican here, I’m speaking as an American. You want to know why the public opinion of Congress is so low? It’s because we don’t listen.

If you want to start the reelection campaign and the strategy for 2012 now, that’s fine. But how about we just fix what’s broken? Instead of standing here pointing fingers at each other, let’s quit spending money we don’t have, let’s not keep borrowing money and using our kids and our grandkids as note signers.

Let’s stop railing against the really wealthy, because I’ve got to tell you something. As a guy who has had to pay his own way his whole life I am greatly offended by the idea that somehow somebody in Washington knows how to spend my money better than I do. That somebody in Washington knows how to regulate me to the point where I can’t even borrow money any more. You want to talk about people who are afraid? The small banks. They’re scared to death to do anything. Why? Because their government has such onerous regulations on them anymore that they don’t know about the rules and the regulations that have been put through or haven’t even been written.

Congress has not passed a budget in approaching 800 days. That’s over two years. In 2010, Congress — which was massively controlled by Democrats in both Houses — refused to even attempt a budget because the Democrats knew any budget they would come up with would cause more Democrats to lose their seats. The nation was broiling over the runaway spending and not about to sit still and take a tax increase, so the Democrats chose instead to violate the Constitution and not even attempt a budget. In 2011, the House of Representatives, run by Republicans, did their Constitutional duty and passed a budget. Harry Reid decided “his” Democrat-controlled Senate wouldn’t even bother. Despite the Constitutional requirements.

During the 2010 election cycle, Democrats foolishly tried to demagogue the budget issue while hypocritically refusing to even try to pass a budget, painting Republicans in what Democrats thought was a bad light. The problem? The American citizens wanted the fiscal restraint the Republicans were running on. In 2011, Democrats are still foolishly using that demagoguery, refusing to put forth a budget and trying to paint Republicans in what Democrats think is a bad light. Of course, they have the full aid and support of the mainstream media (who are no longer even trying to hide their Leftist agenda). But Conservative talk radio and the Conservative blogosphere is destroying the Leftist memes. And the American people are still demanding Government live within its means and actually cut spending — drastically.

Representative Mike Kelly (R – PA) (TEA Party) is not letting the Democrats get away with their usual lies and scare tactics. And he’s not the only one. Representative Allen West (R – FL) (TEA Party) is another, as is Representative Michele Bachmann (R – MN) (TEA Party) and many others. And the Conservative social media and Conservative talk radio are hammering away at the hypocritical, lying Democrats and mainstream media (but I repeat myself).
