Mind the Gap

2012 January 15
by drdog09

An oldie. But it is still fundamental as to the basis of how in this country the Democrats are attempting to sway this election. It is the fundamental mantra of the OWS crowd. It is not the fact that poor are increasing their baseline over time, but that the gap between the poorest members of society are losing on the spread. It is a mind trick that has been played by every street wise urchin doing a three card monty.

So the battle enjoined in this country for 2012 is not just to defeat the Democrats. We must, once and for all educate the populace to the game that is being played.

    Eph, good column from Andy McCarthy. There are numerous things that concern me about Romney, but his commitment to RomneyCare indicates to me that his understanding of government isn’t based on our founding principles. I don’t know if he doesn’t see the conflict, doesn’t care, thinks we’re past that or whatever, but his continuing defense of RC shows his lack of conservative principles.

    I see Romney as a sort of chameleon. He kind of hedges who he is and what he has to say based on what he’s doing. IMO, it’s a mark of a deal maker, but not a candidate I want to support.

    Eph, yes, I don’t have an idea on who that would be, if he is nominated. There’s no telling what machinations are going on, however, it’s hard for me to see him picking someone like Rubio who connects with people. McCain was upstaged by Palin, and I don’t know if the GOP higher ranks would want to repeat that.

    You people deny the obvious: Romney is the most electable and will be the nominee. There are no viable (read: electable) alternatives.

    The fact that you continue to wring your hands over your belief that Romney is insufficiently conservative suggests that you’d rather have the deperate liberal incumbent re-elected. You risk the destruction of our nation – waiting for a “real conservative.”

    Such thinking is wrongheaded. And ignores history: every Republican elected president since 1952 has been so – campaigning as a moderate conservative. It is unarguable.

    #21 You are a parody of yourself. What is the definition of a moderate conservative? Issue by issue. What are they for/against/indifferent to, and the things they are indifferent to- why are they?

    I appreciate that Mittens might be the nominee…and if he is he will get my vote. BUT Mittens will not get my SUPPORT unless he can articulate actual POSITIONS on things…instead of just giving us vague assertions that he “knows how to lead” blah…blah…blah

    As I positited on the other thread, defeating Obama IS critical…but it is NOT the ONLY objective!

    You know, it’s always the conservatives fault. If Obama is re-elected, it is because conservatives won’t coalesce around non-conservative Romney, whom the media and others are foisting upon us. It is the conservatives fault we lost to the Dems in 2006 because so many refused to vote for congressman and senators who spent like the dem-lites they were. (not forgetting the near disaster these same men and women nearly caused in the amnesty debate…) It’s the fault of the conservatives we lost the 2008 election, even though many of us held our nose and pulled the lever for a man we despised…or voted for his Veep selection instead…Yup. All this is because of conservatives.

    Sheesh. Thank God for conservatives who are holding the line against outright socialism and destruction of the country.

    In a bank, tellers can discern the difference in real or counterfeit money because they’ve handled the real deal so much. This is the reason Romney doesn’t sit well with conservatives. Conservatives know what a real conservative is and the counterfeits just don’t feel right.

    INC and Beej…. it is good to see you ladies here today.

    Now I want to apologize to JustMary and Justrand and all the regular BGJ contributors.

    After I examine the timeline of the posts at both HHR and BJG, it is obvious that Janzam’s emotional reactions to my disagreements with her is what motivated her to encourage this “drive-by” bombing of BJG

    But for her inciting and encouragement to be sure the other posters would have gotten bored and gone away. I apologize to all of you for the disruption of this site and the aggravation they caused.

    I want you to know that I appreciate the support you have given me. I may not have commented but I did see each of your posts and I do appreciate it very much.

    I apologize for the grief they caused both Mary and Justrand and the insults they hurled your way.

    I apologize to all of our regular posters and lurkers for the HHR bombardment.

    To be sure it was motivated by Janzam as a way for her to extract some sense of emotional well being and “fun.” I hope she can find some sense of satisfaction thinking she has extracted her desired revenge.

    In the General, I will vote for whoever is not Obama. Unless I decide to also sit it out. I have not missed an election in…30 years or so. Certainly never purposely.

    There is not a group think here. There are those that are pro-Romney, those that are for Palin, and any number of in-betweens. If you have preconceived notions about this site and the people here, I would advise you to get rid of them.

    thinks you shouldn’t expound on, and see what happens. It’s his soapbox and his right to ban anybody, as it is the right of the BJG monitors to follow suit. Free speech does not entail the demand that someone else provide your soapbox. We at BJG have no obligation to be solicitous of provocateurs.~~~MPBUT

    LongBus… are we required to respond to you just because you show up?

    Don’t you realize that your history precedes you. Your slandering people who post here while you are on HHR merits you NO respect or consideration.

    Why would anyone want to engage in discussion with you. Without even knowing anyone here you already have you mind made up about those people.

    Now that is a prime example of group think…

    NOT one of you knows me, but you insult me with impunity.

    Why should I or anyone have any desire to engage with you in any discussion. You are so locked into your thinking that it does not matter what anyone would say.

    Why would anyone of us share information with a stranger? Let alone a stranger who insults us.

    JR – thank you for your site and the many excellent articles you have written.

    JM – sorry for all the dog crap you have had to see over the last few days. You done GOOD.

    Judy – no apology every needed.

    INC – always good to see you. May God continue to bless you and your tribe.

    Since 1974 I have NEVER EVER missed a General Election. Over that same time I have only missed 1 Primary Election which had no challengers and no issues.

    As of NOW, if Romney is the nominee I will vote down the ticket BUT I will not vote for Romney.

    I am sick and tired of the DC Elite who thinks they know best. The country is coming apart and they have no clue. As Rush was saying the other day, the Tea Party members see the abyss and the DC Elite BELIEVE we can continue as is. We can not. Our future is that of current day Europe and the DC Elite can not see it.

    I held my nose and voted for George Bush in 1992. I held my nose and voted for Bob Dole in 1996. George W Bush LIED to me in 2000 when he said he was NOT into nation building. I last held my nose in 2008 for John McCain (if not for Sarah I would have gone 3rd party).

    I realize more than most what is at stake. And more than most I realize what the consequences of my actions will be. If in doubt look over my posts over the last 4 years to where I believe we are headed.

    HHR members – Group think – I don’t think so. Eat shit and die.

    #92 Stop beating around the bush. He didn’t delete anything containing a line item account of what moderate conservative means, and you know this (I think you may have a clue that I know it too 😉 ).

    As for censorship, I ask again. How many times were comments edited in the last year? This is not something I have had to do, because the commenters here were adults. Then the mental hospital got internet service and all hell broke loose. Again, I have only banned 2 posters in the past 3 years. This is not something I have had to do. Notice how Gold Standard is still here? So sad, because he was actually trying to be banned by 11pm. How’d that work out? Damn. Anyhow, I’m really looking forward to your new site. I can’t wait to see how moderate it is!!! Good luck!

    I understand how you feel about having to hold your nose all of these years. I understand how you feel about coming for years.

There are lots of people feeling just like me, and telling me to submit just won’t work. Sorry.

Again, I read it before it was deleted, therefore I know what it said, therefore I asked you again to please for the love of all that is good and holy just tell me what moderate conservatism means, not who was one and historical blabber and insults. What are the tenets of moderate conservatism? Are there any? Or were moderate conservatives too lazy to write them up? Waiting for someone else to write them up so they could know what their position should be? What? Perhaps you can post them on your new site! Though I imagine this is what it will look like:

    That is what RR and that crowd does not understand. Some people (BJG) are people that have core values that they just wont bend on. Moderate – Conservatives (better known as Compassionate Conservatives) wont stand for anything, so they will fall for anything.

    RR may think we are backwards, unintelligent and plain not nice people. Guess what – I don’t care. He does not put food on my table or put a roof over my head – he has no say.

    And if he thinks I am radical. I got news for him. Some of my friends are to the right of me that make me look like a moderate. I am more than willing to fight and die for what I believe in, is he willing to die for what someone else believes in?
