    Two of the biggest jokes ever!!!

    I never cease to marvel at the unique capacity humans have to make others laugh. But humor is serious stuff.

    OK….here’s the first one:
    1. A wife walks in on her husband and finds him in bed with another women…’You..you…you promised you’d never cheat on me!” she cries. He answers, "Who are you going to believe? Me, or your lying eyes?"




    2. Yesterday, I offered an OP about Obama’s claim that no hard working, innovative, entrepreneur should get credit for a successful business...
    ‘If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.’

    3. Several of the Obama defenders actually claimed that if one reads the full speech in a certain way, Obama wasn’t saying what he said.

    a. From one: “You left off the antecedent of "that". A pronoun is almost meaningless without its antecedent.”

    b. And, another: “This speech was not about someone else building businesses… a completely different meaning, … It is simply the truth.”



    4. “…you didn’t build that. Somebody else…” Meaningless?
    5. “ This speech was not about someone else building businesses. … It is simply the truth.” “Somebody else made that happen.”




    6. Now, the truth is that Obama slipped, as he is wont to do without his teleprompter, and he actually revealed his belief. He got back and the handlers went nuts…”What did you do????”

    a. “ President Barack Obama‘s campaign officials are trying to minimize the damage caused by his campaign-trail comments that downplayed entrepreneurship.” Romney jumps on Obama's 'you didn't build that' comment | The Daily Caller


    b. “What do you do when everybody's claiming your president said something, and you just know he didn't really say it, but all the video and all the audio and all the transcripts show that he did say it? ….comments that are on their face
    contemptuous of individual merit and out of step with American popular opinion.” How "You didn't build that" became "He didn't say that" - Hit & Run : Reason.com


    7. OK…it’s one thing when paid apparatchiks of the Obama campaign try to muddy the water to save the flubber-in-chief…..but what to think of the lackeys who will buy any conjured mistruths, and lap it up like a hungry cur?
    a. Is there a “Jim Jones- People’s Temple gene” in part of the population???




    8. No….these folks are the’second joke’….,

    "Who are you going to believe? Me, or your lying ears?"

    Who do you think that comment is going to bother? Certainly not the liberals they rely so heavily on the government that they have to think what he said is true. The independents might have a problem with what he said. Conservatives are not going to change their mind about Obama regardless of what he says. So the target audience is true independents.

    Bizarro Girl lives in a world where businesses can survive without government.

    Forgetting that these "rugged individualists" wouldn't last a week without legal protections, law enforcement, patent rights, and of course, the lucrative government contracts they all compete for.

    Yes, Obama is anti-capitalist, anti-private sector, and anti-individual. He slipped up and showed it to us. The left is in full damage control mode and will say the stupidest shit with a straight face if they have to.

    Um, actually, no, they didn't.

    Even back to ancient times, most of the laws were designed to protect commerce.

    See....now you're gonna make me be serious, here.

    1. While I fully admit that I enjoy riling up those folks, our main function as I see it is education.

    Now, I regularly conflate Liberalism with the Left, communism, socialism, etc., because of limitations of space, and for emphasis....but,....

    2. ...Dennis Prager recently said the following:

    "Recognize that we are fighting the left, not liberals.
    Conservatives and centrists are no longer fighting liberals. We are fighting the left.
    Liberalism believed in American exceptionalism; the left not only does not believe in it, the left opposes it. President Obama, when asked if he believes in American exceptionalism, replied, "I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism, and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism."
    Liberalism believed in creating wealth; the left is interested in redistributing it.
    Liberalism believed in a strong defense. The left believes in cutting defense and a strong United Nations."

    3. And, this,...

    "FDR's liberalism, however, was so much more accepting of God (see his national radio prayer on D-Day, for example) so much more pro-work and so much more concerned with defending America...that the modern Left can honestly be characterized as a radical break from FDR's worldview."
    Gingrich, "To Save America," p. 36.


    My point is that not just independents, but many Liberals....not Leftists....will not vote for Obama again.
    And that is my audience....I hope.
