Given that the democratic party is made up a collection of individuals that hold to no common goal, it is surprising that they have not fallen apart before now. When you each believe in your pet cause to the exclusion of everyone else it is hard to work together as a unit. I think it is called Anarchy.

This tribute to Hillary is a new demotivational poster by yours truly, the glorious Lemur King. It is a simple reminder to the junior senator (leech) in the swamp, that determination to win don’t always make it so.

Their next hurdle will be when they chew and gum each other to the death at the convention (and leading up to) as they decide how to get around those pesky rules that let Michigan and Florida copulate themselves right out of the picture when it comes to the primary.

I can see it – two factions inside of the DNC standing before the Supreme Court, waiting for a panel of judges to rule as to whether or not you have to play by the rules in an election. Such a tough call. Luckily we’re all adults and can be expected to see reason.

Oh, let’s just pull up a chair and a nice ice-cold Dr. Pepper while we watch them twitch in the wind!

The latest in social engineering. NPR (National agitProp Radio) reported today that there would be incentives given to those who buy hybrid vehicles.

Think about that… Think about it again… I’ll wait…

They will take taxes from you, far in excess of what the government needs to run (if you take away pork and entitlements), and give it back to you if you exhibit rewardable behavior while purchasing a large item, such as a car. This is known as social engineering. How remarkable! Our government is in the business of regulating our behavior. Doesn’t that just leave you all warm and fuzzy?

Next, in the latest issue of Guns and Ammo Handguns (June/July 2008) comes word that as many as ten (10) states are considering – get this – serialization of ammunition. That is, a serial number laser-engraved on every bullet. Every bullet. Totalitarian states considering this are: Arizona, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Mississippi, New York, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, and Washington. So, now you know where you won’t live when deciding to look for work elsewhere. It’s not even that it is so infeasible as to not even work, but the fact that some damned idiot wants to do it. Theres no real proof that it would (1) work so that a bullet was recognizable, (2) prove to be anything less than a bureaucratic nightmare, or (3) change anything in a meaningful way, but by God, some unqualified schmucks in government think it’s jim-dandy idea.

[note: I had another example of societal engineering that I thought of on the way home but cannot remember it right now, sorry. I’ll pick it up again tomorrow when I’ve gotten some rest. – LK]

Update!!!

I just though of the latest thing in social engineering that I had forgotten. The mind manipulation in new TV ads convincing us to buy into CFL’s. Yes, according to this ad, our seven year old daughter has more on the ball than old dad, who apparently must be guided through life by his children, even to the point of being told what kind of lightbulb to buy.

I have issues with our government and politicians making decisions that they have no business making, for politicians rely on emotions, political dynamics, and a large amount of hubris to make up their minds about anything, including light bulbs.

from the link above, Steven Milloy states:

The business fantasy is for the nation’s 4 billion-plus light sockets to sport CFLs. There’s much more ka-ching in selling 4 billion $5 light bulbs as opposed to incandescent bulbs costing $0.75. But what about the mercury problem that may impose substantial liabilities on businesses and consumers faster than CFL light bulbs turn on?

Today’s business leaders apparently have forgotten the infamous Superfund program that needlessly and retroactively imposed tens of billions of dollars of costs for pre-1980 waste disposal practices regardless of whether they were legal at the time. CFL-maker GE, in particular, is involved in a senseless $500 million clean-up of industrial chemicals known as PCBs buried long ago in Hudson River sediments.

Imagine the clean-up costs from billions of CFLs disposed in landfills and burned in incinerators across the country. Superfund even imposed bankrupting liability on mom-and-pop businesses. Imagine the peril of home-based businesses that casually toss CFLs in the household trash.

First mercury was dangerous. Then, temporarily, it became no big deal. Now that the Greens have caught us in the CFL trap, they’re reverting to form on mercury — all to cause the sort of chaos resulting in increased government control of our lives.

Speaking of ammo and gun control… Next is the woman obsessed with sniper fire and the idea of her opponent being assassinated (perhaps a bit of instability there, eh, Hill?), HIllary Clinton and her stance on… Yeah, you guessed it… guns! She was reported in USA Today as saying “I believe in the Second Amendment right to bear arms.” As pointed out in TownHall, however, she has in her last seven years in congress co-sponsored 22 anti-gun bills. Well, I guess being shot at so much would have an impact on your gun stance, huh? And it’s a lot easier to sponsor anti-gun bills when you have your own ****ing Secret Service bodyguards paid up for you and your entire family for the rest of your miserable life. The rest of us aren’t so lucky.

Another graphic, this one obtained from youscold.com… Thank God no one wrapped a turban around that butt or there would be rioting in the streets across the world over the indignity.

Ok, I have no idea where this next one came from, folks but we should all take it to heart… cell phones must be turned off while in the movie theater or if you clearly cannot observe all traffic laws while discussing last night’s American Idol. Actually, to date, were it not illegal to do so, I can think of three guys, roughly fifteen different women, and six to seven teenagers that I would have done this to.
