An article appeared on Monday titled, “Democrats continue to claim
GOP worse than Ebola, terrorists”
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
“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?
