I understand the attraction of take from the rich and give to the poor. being poor myself, its easy to see the lure.
But I also see the numbers that show: those in the upper 25% today, 20-30 years ago were in the lower 2/5ths income brackets; same palce I am now. They struggled to get by, lived on Macaroni and Hot Dogs, and clawed their way up the ladder to get their slice of the American dream.
And now, the modern liberal (same as liberals of their time) wants to take half and give it to the poor kids just starting off.
I take the long view and think how Im going to feel in 20 years, when Ive made it, and gotten up that ladder to the upper 25%. Will I be sympathetic to some fresh-out-of-college kid whining he doesnt have my experience, work history, client base; that he has to pay his dues, same as I am now?
Hell, I’m not sympathetic to that argument now. Why is it fair to take half of what my dad worked his whole life to get, just because I want it? Shouldnt I earn it, same as he did? And isnt it foolish, almost to the point of childish idiocy, to expect to start off at the same level as he is, with 30 years in his job? The statistics show if I try, I’ll make it there myself; higher if I work hard.
So why is today’s punk kid somehow entitled to start higher than his parents have worked their whole lives to get to? How is it fair for the govt to take by force what you spent more than half your life working to achieve, just so some whiny brat doesnt have to exert himself for his dream? Obama wants to tax the piss outta Mom and Dad, and Grandma and Grandpa, for having the audacity to work for their dreams, because junior is too lazy and weak to actually get out of the basement and sweat a bit for his. How is this “fair”?
Well, did you think we would make it this far? We’ve sure had a lot of ups and downs, seen lots of people come and go, and even had to say a fond fare well to one of our dearest friends; Carl.
I don’t think of this place as being a “social media” site. It’s a lot more than that. We all came together to celebrate Conservatism and enjoy talking with each other – most on a daily basis.
Here’s to the next 5 years!

Our grand strategy for dealing with Republicans:
Accuse them of:
- Being stupid, ignorant and/or crude
- Wanting the rich to get a tax break on the backs of the poor
- Spoiling Christmas
- Celebrating Christmas
- Trying to take over the government
- Being selfish
- Being greedy
- Being un-American
- Being unRepublician
- Being unConservative
- Being racist
- Being childish
- Refusing to accept having things even totally their way
- Hating the environment
- Being mean and insensitive
- Loving waste
- Hating fairness
- Being ignorant and closed minded, behind the times and against progress
- Ignoring the best interests of “the children” (the NEA)
- Being the same as terrorists
- Hating the poor, sick and handicapped
- Wanting the world to come to an end in a polluted mess
- Being dishonest
- Ignoring the wishes of the voters
- Being sexist (even the women)
- Hating the working man
- Hating the middle and lower class
- Being pawns of the military industrial complex
- Loving war and violence
- Being against equality for anyone
In addition, encourage our useful idiots to accuse Republicans of being:
- Religious extremists
- Supporting violence
- Being White Supremacists, even black Republicans
- Wanting to reduce freedoms
Of course the primary weapon is to say that they are stupid – especially the women. We cannot allow any Republican women to gain traction. They have to be stupid to be Republican women, as Republicans hate women. If you cannot find a flaw, make them up, or make their qualities look like flaws. For example: “She can’t be a good president because she’s too good a mother.”
On the other hand, all Democrats must all be referred to as highly intelligent, attractive and knowledgeable. Hey, if we succeeded with Joe Biden, we can make anyone look good.
It is important to not accuse them of lying. We must be careful NEVER to do this, as they will point out all the times we lie, and that is a no-win game for us. Accusing them of being dishonest or ignoring the truth is fine, but accusing them of lying is to be avoided. Lets face it, we’re more vulernerable than they are.
Never accuse them of being corrupt, for much the same reasons
Never answer a direct question about Republicans. Answer a different question. No matter how pointed the question is, answer a question in which the answer is how horrible the Republicans are.
Always equate children with education. Any criticism of education, teachers or waste in education is simply meant to deprive children of their right to a good education.
Make sure to take any faults the DNC has and accuse the RNC of them. Not only does this make them defend themselves, but it legitimizes our faults, as “everyone is doing that”, such as vacations and gifts paid for by lobbyists, etc.
Never give any actual, specific facts. Never defend yourself, always attack. Never admit to being wrong, except to accuse the Republicans of misleading you. In such an event, imply that a conspiracy is responsible (adding “vast right wing” is not necessary).
Of course, continue to criticize them for not being perfect. Hold them up to their own standards. Any standard any Republican comes up with is fine to hold all Republicans to. Even simply implying that they are not obeying a standard is good.
We must also remember to change the rules of political correctness (which we own after all) to catch them off balance.
Remember, if you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck. If you fine yourself losing a debate, purposefully misunderstand your opponent and accuse him or her of something terrible – racism is always a good standby. There is always a way to twist the facts to make anything look like it will be bad for blacks.
If you would like to discuss and debate Conservative Topics with us, use the “Contact Us” link and send us an email requesting membership. Our Forum has some very interesting threads with topics on the Tea Party, new Republican Presidential Candidates, Global Warming, Immigration, Border Control, and Gun Ownership – just to name a few.
We also discuss news articles from sites posted by Matt Drudge, Andrew Breitbart, Ann Coulter, and other Conservative outlets. Some of them can be seen in the links under Blogroll to your right. For example, this excellent video is from Breitbart’s site.
Our great country is suffering under the hand of a Socialist president. We need strategies, ideas, and to encourage one another to remain faithful to our Founding Father’s and the Constitution. We have been “Covert” in our Conservatism for far too long. Conservatism is the answer, and we discuss its merits every day.
