An article appeared on Monday titled, “Democrats continue to claim GOP worse than Ebola, terrorists”showing two videos of an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” over the weekend, with Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus. “CNN host Candy Crowley asked Schultz about a Democratic campaign ad attacking Republican Senate candidate Cory Gardner as “too extreme for Colorado.” “So we’ve heard this in previous elections, too extreme, too extreme their Tea Party, we can’t work with them,” Crowley said. “So, it seems that the Democrats’ overall message is: Yes, ISIS is scary. Yes, Ebola is scary. But Republicans are a lot scarier.”Her comment?
“Well, that’s right”!
I'm always a bit amazed and amused at what Wasserman thinks constitutes extreme. Well, perhaps we should try and find out what exactly is Wasserman’s view of normal.
Assuming she agrees with all the positions of her party, it would appear that Wasserman thinks business people, who create all the jobs– no matter what Hillary thinks – are cheap and greedy, yet think nothing of charging $35,000.00 per plate for an Obama campaign fund-raising event, while having the nerve to claim America, a country with a black president, a black attorney general, approximately 20% work force in the federal government, where only 14% of the population is black, where 40+% of all federal entitlements goes to black Americans – 3 times the rate that go to whites, and 5 times the rate that go to Hispanics, is racist! So anyone who thinks this way is normal and anyone who disagrees is extreme?
A nation where the head of the Treasury Department, Timothy Geithner and one time Ways and Means Committee Chairman, Charlie Rangel can be tax cheats and continue to hold office without serious penalty. But that's not extreme?
A nation where terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media and prominent people declaring Islam is a religion of peace, and whose primary reaction amounts to emotional outcries that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash - and that's normal?
A nation that has rules for people who wait for years in their home countries to come here legally and become American citizens, while discussing how to let anyone who sneaks into the country illegally can 'magically' become American citizens. A nation where you need to present a driver's license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote –and this is normal?
Wasserman apparently thinks it’s perfectly normal that government taxes on a gallon of gasoline is substantially higher than the profits taken by the oil companies. Taxing authorities that don’t search for the oil, don’t transport the oil, don't refine the oil, and don't deliver the final product to the public, but demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. Oil company is less than half of a company making tennis shoes. The same people who were outraged that under Bush the price of gasoline went up substantially, yet think it’s perfectly normal for the price to go from $1.78 a gallon at the beginning of Obama’s administration to almost $4.00 a gallon now, and in some places peaking at 5.99 a gallon for premium.
They think the nations power grid should abandon all so-called fossil fuels for power generation, which is a system that's inexpensive and reliable, in favor of so-called renewable energy sources that are very expensive, very unreliable, and compared to traditional energy sources are more environmentally destructive. A power generation system that would be economically devastating – all in the name of ‘saving’ the world from Global Warming, supposedly caused by CO2, although the world stopped warming 18 years ago in spite of the fact that CO2 levels have risen dramatically during that time. And this is normal?
These are the same people who would stop every construction job in the nation and confiscate all private property in order to save some obscure bug they claim may be endangered. But that isn’t extreme!
These are the people who think the Constitution is just a dusty old document that can be ignored, twisted, and rewritten with regulations from administration bureaucrats - that the Congress must just do what the President says and be quiet - that mass murderers like Fidel Castro are just wonderful people - that aborting millions of innocent babies while weeping in sack cloth and ashes over the death penalty for the worst criminals in the nation, and giving rights to criminals while taking away the rights of honest people - that abandoning the Constitution and turning our 'unalienable' rights over to the judgment of the United Nations is normal.
Apparently Wasserman’s “normal” means collecting more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, while spending a trillion dollars more than it has per year - for total spending of $7-Million per minute, and complain that it doesn't have nearly enough money. Where accusing the rich people- who pay 86% of all income taxes - of not paying their "fair share" by people who don't pay any income taxes at all, and people who believe in balancing the budget, sticking by the nation's Constitution, and support the traditional values that made the nation great are extremists.
So now, let's see a show of hands. How many people think and believe - I mean really believe - Debbie Wasserman Shultz is normal?
