    Liberal Logic 101
    Yes they are that stupid. It is just one more reason to refer to them as Libtards.
    (May also be a good idea to sterilize them so they can no longer breed. It would save abortions too as killing innocent unborn children is a liberal thing.)

    • Phillip_in_TX

      Maybe they could include stitching up the cut below their nose in “Obamacare.”

      • John

        Under your crappy healthcare you’d die like those faith healers kids died.

        • Thomas Sharp

          Are you an expert in crawling under things John?

        • Phillip_in_TX

          Well, good morning John. If you want “crappy health care” just wait until “Obamacare” fully kicks in.

          If our “Health Care System” sucks so bad, why do leaders from around the world (who have their OWN healthcare systems) come here for treatment?

        Super glue, repeated applications until there was no more liberal there.

        • Phillip_in_TX

          That works for me! It would “save money” too!

          • Thomas Sharp

            LOL
            Since it is our money, after all, I am usually looking for thrifty solutions

  • mfernandez57MN

    Thomas old bean, you hit three nail right on the head. Good call.

  • dave

    Good write up.

  • sovereigntyofone

    After reading this article, it seemed to be right on target. Something straight out of George Orwell’s book 1984. Newspeak = political correctness, Department of Truth = Democrats and liberals rewriting history to fit their agenda. The list goes on. Sometimes I think they are using the book 1984 as their agenda plan of operations, of course I’m sure that they’ve added a few more modern twists to it. In Orwell’s book they didn’t have Drones to fly over cities and towns to spy on you, they just had the television or video monitor every where you went watching you. The minute of hate, well that could be anytime you turn on Obama’s lame stream media news channels on your t.v.
    I’m sure that even George Orwell would be shocked if he were alive today to see just how accurate his vision of the future was in his science fiction book.

    • exbuckeye

      Youve got it backwards – Orwell had snuck a copy of the libtard plans out
      and wrote his book around them. lol

      • sovereigntyofone

        One never knows.. lol
        They might have even been around stirring up (fill in the blank) back in 1938.

    • Buzzard777

      I have thought the same thing. More people should read “1984” and “Animal Farm” Orwell’s other book about today. We’re all equal, it’s just that the pigs in Animal Farm were “more equal”, just like the Liberals.

      • sovereigntyofone

        It use to be ” required reading ” ages ago when I was in school. Now days they are too busy brain washing our kids and teaching them the communist manifesto. Teaching them that the ” patriots ” at the Boston Tea Party was nothing more than ” terrorists “.

    • Alfred Ferguson

      Yes. In addition, let us mot forget the hedonism implicit in that other famous (or infamous) dystopia, Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World”. . . .We seem to be experiencing a blended version of the two. But at least we don’t have “Victory Gin”. Yet. And we can still turn off the TV. Can’t we?

      • sovereigntyofone

        True we don’t have ” Victory Gin ” yet, but we sure have a lot of ” Pot ” being smoked and tons of other drugs coming into the U.S. It’s going somewhere and someone is using it. We are living in a ” Dumbed down, doped up ” society.
        Keep them stupid and remain in power and control, just as long as they get their ” entitlements and pot “. We can turn off our televisions, but we can’t turn off our politicians………. yet !

  • Fred_K

    That about sums it up. The lawyers have manipulated the definitions to suit them, and we suffer the consequences. Now to unelect the perps…

  • NotFondaJane

    Unfortunately, Mr. Erickson is dead on correct in every point.
    Bad News: To the idiots currently running the government, all those points and even worse are axioms by which they live.
    Good News: The majority of Americans are not that stupid
    Bad News: The majority of people who vote are that stupid and dependent upon the stupid people in power
    Good News: We can and must reach those American people that don’t bother to vote, because they are not that stupid and can be reached with the truth.

    • John

      No – he’s dead wrong on every point – he’s just writing garbage to appeal to the right wing gullible clowns like you.

    Liberalism is Screwed Down…or is it Screwed up? I forget…

    • Alfred Ferguson

      Doesn’t matter. To (modern) liberals, “up” is “down”, and “down” is “up”. To “think” otherwise is to be a rigid rule-maker, rule-follower. Or, as one of my students once expostulated to me in an essay: “good and evil–they’re just what people say they are–depends on whom [sic] labels them.” Thus (modern) liberals, and liberalism, the precursor to tyranny. Inevitably. Historically.

  • akoby

    So dead on it is scary. Scary because it is the truth.

  • Phillip_in_TX

    I believe the article pretty well sums it up. No wonder they are so screwed up!

  • John

    Unfortunately the right are too stupid to see reason. Just don’t know how dumb they are – believing in magic gods is the proof. ID is pure creationism – Steven Meyer in a Focus on the Stupid ad admitted that.

    • Phillip_in_TX

      Sorry. I don’t believe in “gods.” I believe in God. I guess it really sucks that everyone is not as “wise” as you are, doesn’t it?

      • Ruby_Con

        Such a tragic shame that people like John don’t stay on their meds. They think that just because they are feeling “normal” that they can just stop cold turkey.

        • Phillip_in_TX

          I agree with that! I’ve come to the conclusion that John is a WMD (Weapon of Mass Delusion).

    • Jane18

      John, let’s say that “maybe” you are wrong when you say stupid things like “magic gods,(we know what you are insinuating, because there really is only one GOD), sooooooooo, what are you going to say to GOD one day when you must stand before HIM(you know, just saying “maybe” you are wrong………………….)?

    • polmutant

      Jesus Christ is Lord. NO SOVERGEIN BUT GOD NO KING BUT JESUS. but alas in man’s foolishness it becomes obvious that the become too folloish to do even simple math. leave GOD out get deficit spending,baby murderers, homosexuals, and communism as “man” struggles to huddle together in their fear and foolishness.

    • MR.RIGHT

      “A fool in his heart says there is no God” I believe God meant that for women too.

    • Skeptical_Boomer

      Do you ever spew anything but nonsense and vitriol? What a sad pathetic creature you must be. You really believe that all the things you observe in the world around you all spontaneously generated from nothing and we all live, die, and that’s it. No fool like you has ever been able to answer why we are the only species who is self aware and has evolved emotions and a conscience. No magic gods John. Just God. I will pray for you John.

  • downs1

    Do you think God really meant it when He said, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter” (Isaiah 5:20)? I do! I believe He was dead serious! God says what He means and means what He says! That should give pause to those fools who boo’d God at the DNC! To those who live a diabolical lie from day to day and who believe they will win in this great spiritual war, beware! They are already condemned because their hearts are obviously hardened. These are the people “who turn to their own way and do those things that are right in their own eyes.” When things fall apart around them, they will blame everyone but themselves! One day they will look around and the “good guys” [you know, Tea Party types, who cling to their “Bibles” and their guns] will be suddenly gone (1 Thess. 4:13-18)! They will try to “spin” that, too, but they won’t succeed! They want social justice, they will get precisely what they asked for: social justice!!

    • Jane18

      downs1,I was with you all the way , until you said, “…..will be suddenly gone”. Sorry 1, that “rapture” stuff is a lie! No one is going anywhere, When the real Christ makes His 2nd Advent(after satan has been here pretending he is the Christ), HE(Jesus) is staying here on earth. I just hate it when I read or hear from a very nice person, and they have been lied to by their preachers, teachers, pastors, priests, holy this’, father that, reverends, etc.). I could tell you what so many words mean in those verses, but for times’ sake I will tell you what the words “clouds” and “air” means . “Clouds” in this passage means a multitude(the souls and spirits) of those already passed(verses 13, 14, and 15). “Air” is the spiritual breath of life we go into when JESUS makes HIS showing. If we had more people who would read with understanding GOD’s words, maybe things would not be as bad as they are………………………..Hey, if people want to forsake HIM……………………..their loss!!

      • Fralick

        Jane 18 I have no idea where you get your twisted interpretation from…but as a reader of Hebrew and Greek and reading the texts in their original language I can say that you have no idea what you are talking about!

      • downs1

        Gosh, Jane, I’m sorry I offended you. I guess the four years I spent at Dallas Theological Seminary earning a Master of Theology Degree and the 23 years I have spent studying and teaching the Bible and working as a pastor don’t qualify me to exposit or interpret Scripture. I can only tell you what I firmly believe.

        sorry, but you are an idiot! and who are you to interpret God’s word? are you some profit? do you have some communication with our Father in heaven? you are one person with one interpretation that happens to be WRONG! I for one know what God say’s Jesus said he would come again period what are these verses you refer to 13,14,15? you don’t even state the book or chapter.

  • Berzrkr50

    I can think of only one cure for people this crazy. I hate to say it but being put up against a wall for treason is about the only thing that will get their attention. I for one have had an a&& full of their bullshite!

    • Alfred Ferguson

      Why do you “hate to say it”? It should be said. Repeatedly. And then, done with it.

  • 820 REDHORSE

    I heard this one person at a conference say and I quote” To love your country and to be a Patriot you must first hate your country” I almost hit the deck!! First off this was a safety conference I was at and 2nd this woman got up on stage while we were on break and started babbling about not blaming the bombings on islam, then she went into her statement I quoted above, but what really did my heart good was the overwhelming sounds of “get the hell outta here! and “Shut your stinkin piehole!” and the constant booing from all in attendance. The group hosting the event promptly ask her to leave and she would be refunded her money . Also there was a good mix of Blacks,whites ,male & female, latinos , asains, about a 150 in attendance. After the events of the past weeks , it was good to see that many people re-act the same way to a libuturd moe-rons rant!

  • Jane18

    GOD really knew what HE told the prophets to write about. Oh yeah….. we have leaders(politician, judges, etc.)that have made wrong, right, and right, wrong! They definitely have the mind of children(another quote of GOD’s), they have no common sense whatsoever. Bunch of losers…. they do not know it will not make any difference “who” they were here on earth(whether a president, congressman, doctor, lawyer, etc.) when they appear at the White Throne Judgment of GOD!! Same thing goes for all those so-called religions that brainwash and scare their people to death! And to any smart mouth atheist or “whatever”, Christianity is not a religion, it is a way of life, or, is supposed to be………………..

    • dHb

      LOL

  • armydadtexas

    They ARE that stupid. No one can talk rationally to them. They are guided by “ANIMAL FARM” where Good is now evil and Evil is now good. None of them think for themselves. Constantly running to the latest leftist talking point. Look at Detroit. That is the clear, unmistakable result of Decade of Left wing, radical, extremist, lib-turd stupidity. That is the true picture of the lib-turd soul as well. A hollow, bank rupt shell.

  • paco12348

    PCism (which I call political control) could not have occurred in this Nation IF States contained the majority of gov. control instead of the Feds. The Founders saw the dangers and we are living them today. When Feds control they become a gluttonous worm feeding off the people. The Feds can control what they want the people to think and they use the fear factor.
    PCism has infiltrated all levels of our federal gov and it has a blinding, destructive force. It is all through our school systems and books our children use are feeding indoctrination into the young, fertile minds. If we don’t downsize our gov. drastically we surely will be a declining Nation.
    Progressive Democrats are fighting for more control. We must fight to return control back to the States so sanity can return to this Nation.

    RAMPED LIBERALISM IN AMERICA

    Liberalism has been diagnosed as a mental disorder similar to Dementia and Alzheimer diseases. The infected patients can not distinguish the differences between fiction and reality as in dementia. This dementia related psychosis is having lost touch with reality due to confusion or memory loss. The advance cases have no recollection of any kind of history, recent or distant past. These advanced cases have symptoms similar to Alzheimer disease, they lose their way very easily and can not find their way
    back. The really pathetic patients are prone to outbursts of long meaningless rants of socialistic rhetoric.

    Medical research has not determined the exact genome that causes this debilitating mental disorder and there is no cure, but recommend psychotherapy, medication and education to keep the symptoms in check. In extreme cases of mania or hypomania can be suppressed by the use Seroquel and prolonged bouts of deep depression can be kept under control with the use of Lithium or Divalproex.

    About two-thirds (2/3) of the U.S. Senate, about 225 members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the fifty-two percent (52%) of the general misguided public that voted for Obama are affected by an advanced form of Socialistic Liberalism. These poor infected souls should be under psychiatric care. They are very dangerous and should be kept in padded cells in an institution that specializes in extremely debilitating mental diseases.

    On the political stage, the symptoms to watch for are hypomania when they jam an unwanted and very unpopular piece of junk legislation down the throats of the American public and they think they have won. The other symptom is deep
    depression caused by being made to explain their actions or when they lose a
    vote in Congress and they know they have lost.

    The above was pined by a Patriotic, Conservative and Christian, me.

    • Alfred Ferguson

      I have Alzheimer’s. I do lose my way easily. And there’s forgetfulness–increasingly. But I still know the difference between Obama’s fictional attributes and the reality of his beliefs and assumptions–or presumptions. I place no credence in either “psychotherapy” or “medication”. Moreover, I never watch “popular” TV news (Chris Mathews gives me gas). And I am utterly determined to finish Tolstoy’s “War and Peace” before I die. (I have no wish to be “kept under control”–by anyone, or anything–anyone attempting to do so shall certainly receive a shocking and penetrating response.)

  • Lt Roger Wilco

    This is exactly what I have observed and described for years. I am a biologist before becoming an M.D., D.M.D. Liberalism as portrayed by the aberrant individuals like Chuck Shumer, Diane Feinstein and the rest of the twisted we easily observe in our Congress is probably an evolutionary defect; liberals think in reverse: if something is bad, heinous and disgusting, like homosexuality, they adore it. If someone is a despot like old fat Hugo Chavez or Mr. Ugly Beard Castro they idolize him as do all the freaks on the black caucus like Mindless Maxine Waters. Someone honorable and noble like Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher ignites liberals’ panties like nothing else except decent black people like Allen West and Herman Cain and Clarence Thomas whom liberals cannot understand for they are intelligent and motivated and work for what they want and do not expect unearned largesse from the efforts of more worthy people.

    • Alfred Ferguson

      “. . .Ignites liberals’ panties. . .” I like the phrase. I wish I had said that. I think I shall.

    I saw 1984 in the early 60’s. I was 9-10. It scared the hell out me then. Now I’m living it! CRAP!

    • Alfred Ferguson

      I read “1984” IN 1948. My prep-school instructor, although, I suppose, a liberal, was a very intelligent liberal. (Their numbers have diminished since, apparently. Now,virtually extinct?)

      I thought of “1984” rather as I thought of scary Biblical prophecy–intimidating. But wise adults would never, ever allow its coming to pass. Would they? How could they?

      I was a very naif little boy.

    Is anyone surprised. The Bible clearly states that Christians will be mistreated towards the End Times. Look around, read the news. The current events are in the pages of the Bible.

      Mistreated?? Persecuted to the point of death it is happening in Islamic countries everyday but you aren’t going to hear about it from our P.

  • cbarneym

    Mr. Erickson, you are either ignorant of U.S. history or a liar; and the commenter’s certainly prove themselves ignorant of history.

    Here is how the world was before unions, minimum wage, restrictions on corporate power, state rights, etc:

    From July 4, 1776, until the Great Depression America was more fascist then Democratic. For example, the Constitution as originally implemented applied only to white male Protestant Anglo-Saxons property owners who were either born to wealth or were smart and ruthless enough to obtain it; and for decades only those people were allowed to vote.

    Conservative principals of small government and little regulation served the interests of an American aristocratic oligarchy at the expense of all others, including white indentured servants, African American slaves, Indians, and the men, women, and children of working class Americans of all races who were underpaid, underfed, and overworked.

    With wages at subsistence levels and no “safety net” to protect the sick, injured, and mentally ill from destitution even little children were forced – by the prospect of starvation – to help support their families by working in factories, and they can be seen in Lewis Hines photos of “Child Labor in America 1908-1912,” (http://www.historyplace.com/index.html).

    State Rights and slavery were major reasons for the Civil War; but southern conservative attitudes were not changed then or now by their loss of it. How southern conservatives brutally treated African Americans around the turn of the 20th century can be seen in the following lynching photography sites: http://www.americanlynching.com/pic2.htm and http://withoutsanctuary.org/main.html.

    Even WWI veterans did not escape the evils of conservatism. In the summer of 1932 thousands of WWI veterans and their wives and children marched on Washington to petition for advance payment of a bonus they had been promised for wartime service, that was not due until 1945. Congress refused to grant early payment; and, after the veterans refused to disperse, President Hoover allowed ‘General Douglas, leading four troops of cavalry, six tanks, and a column of infantry (with fixed bayonets and teargas), to destroy the encampment and drive the veterans and their wives and children into Maryland.’ (http://www.worldwar1.com/dbc/bonusm.htm)

      Barney. I see your other posts/comments are similarly incoherent. You have a history of simply attacking people with whom you disagree, calling them ignorant liars. Intelligent, pursuasive debate involves coherent argument based on some factual material. I can appreciate you see yourself an Obama apologist, but you don’t do him any favors by misrepresenting history, ignoring his glaring shortcomings, and demonizing Bush. Instead, you appear the monkey dancing to the organ grinder.

    Does anyone remember Al Gore’s “everything that should be down is UP, everything that should be up is DOWN!” speech that he gave (I think) just after Clinton was elected? Al Gore with his arms flailing about wildly like the Lost In Space robot when an intruder was approaching, talking about unemployment being up, wages being down, etc., etc.? They ought to run that speech NOW in 2013, now that it’s genuinely appropriate! Evil is called good, good is called evil, we use darkness for light and light for darkness.

    Use any search engine, and find the 45 Communist Goals outlined to Congress early in 1963. That report and communist objectives were taken from “The Naked Communist”. Review those objective goals, then ask yourself, do ANY of them sound familiar along the line of, right is wrong, up is down, etc…
