Liberalism is a Mental Disorder

The collective state of mind of the left is on the verge of collapse:

Defeat fears put Hollywood on edge

A HIDEOUS new affliction is creeping through the ranks of America’s creative community.

The further Barack Obama edges ahead of John McCain in the million and one polls that are coming out the more pernicious the nagging fear becomes.

What if he loses?

Barely a left-wing pundit, barely an Oscar-nominated softie can sleep a wink these days for fear of the race riots and international humiliation that will ensue should “The One” be defeated on Tuesday.

They think he’s going to win, of course, but their hearts still bear the scars of 2000 and 2004.

The comedian Chris Rock is at least capable of joking about it. “If Obama loses?” he replied to a question from talk show host Bill Maher. “Well, that Wednesday after election day, anybody … any activity in your life that involves black people, it’s not going to get done. If you’re at the airport? No one’s going to get your bags.”

But for others, the dread is nameless and paralysing. Erica Jong, author of the 1970s feminist bible Fear of Flying, has developed a new complex in recent weeks – the fear of an Obama flogging.

“If Obama loses it will spark the second American Civil War. Blood will run in the streets, believe me,” she told the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera last week. “My back is also suffering from spasms, so much so that I had to see an acupuncturist and get prescriptions for Valium.

“Yesterday, Jane Fonda sent me an email to tell me that she cried all night and can’t cure her ailing back for all the stress that has reduced her to a bundle of nerves.”

The American shock-jock Rush Limbaugh, on hearing this last detail, had a direct, if crude, response. “Maybe you should try getting off your back, Jane!” he roared. (The two are not friends.) Hollywood in general is on red anxiety alert for an Obama loss.

Crack teams of chiropractors are at the ready, and Nissen huts full of qualified shrinks and aromatherapists line Rodeo Drive to soothe the tortured brigades of the psychologically wounded should “The One” be robbed of victory.

Actress Susan Sarandon has already issued a veiled threat to the public.

“It’s a critical time, but I have faith in the American people,” she told Britain’s Telegraph newspaper with a touch of implied menace in June this year. “If they prove me wrong, I’ll be checking out a move to Italy. Maybe Canada, I don’t know. We’re at an abyss …”

Sarandon’s words qualify her for membership of a small but committed group of Potential Canadians (PCs) in American artistic and creative circles.

Barbra Streisand vowed to emigrate to Canada in 2000 if George Bush were ever elected President, an undertaking she refreshed four years later at the prospect of his re-election.

But she was still sufficiently resident in California on September 16 this year to host a $US2500 ($3800) a head fund-raiser for Obama at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.

The actor Alec Baldwin and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder made similar threats in 2000, as did Robert Redford in 2004, but none has since enriched the Canadian cultural scene.

In fact, Canadian immigration records show that arrivals from the United States actually slowed in the six months after George Bush’s re-election in 2004.

Obama to Coal Industry: Drop Dead

I’m not sure what course Obama wants to track for energy independence but it sure doesn’t involve domestic coal:

Nobama!

Update: Sarah Palin has incorporated Obama’s contempt for coal into her stump speech’s. I hope it isn’t too late.

Dr. Teresa Ghilarducci & The Nationalization of 401k’s

Wake up. What Barack Obama and a greater Democratic majority will lead to is not the equality of opportunity that is fundamental to this nation…but a shift in emphasis to the ensure equality of outcome. This trophy for everybody mentality is the greatest threat facing this country.

Emblematic of this mentality is Dr. Teresa Ghilarducci and her thoughts on how 401k plans should be modified. See Mark Levin deconstruct here here. Get it straight from the horse’s mouth here.

Ask yourself what you want to achieve in life. If you aspire to the lowest common denominator then you are a Democrat. If you are stupid or lazy, then by all means vote for Barack Obama. He is your man savior.

If you want to maximize your potential then vote McCain-Palin and work to bring back conservative ethics to government and a return to individualism.

Obama To Create Liberal Fascist Domestic Force

Obama announces his call for a Civilian Security Force:

Interesting. We have the Reserves and the National Guard. Why would we need a “Civilian Security Force” in addition or to supplant what is in existence? Perhaps the creation of Barack’s brownshirts will happen at the same time individual gun rights are taken away.

Here’s a look into the future:

Ask yourself, do you feel comfortable with Barack Obama naming two to three appointments to the Supreme Court?
