Quote of the day

“At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child — miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats.” - P.J. O’Rourke

They're also brainwashed by their teachers.

And *cognitive dissonance* is a thing.

And people tend to embrace ideologies that serve their interests. "Liberals" tend to advance in this society.

The photo says it all.

"I don't play sports, obey my elders, respect the Church or Law, work, or listen to anybody but myself..............I am pure anarchy and the world is at fault!"

I recall years ago, when I worked at a college, having one student tell me he thought all us old fogies out to start listening to the young folks, like him, because they were the ones that had the time to do all the research about what was going on in the world. I didn't answer him vocally, as my reply would have gotten me fired, but I had a rather uncharitable thought about wet-nosed college kids who thought they knew it all (and probably still do).

I watched some of them, during the Kent State protests in the early 70s, as their Marxist professors lectured them from Mao's little Red Book on how to go out and demonstrate and I thought "Yeah, Junior, we should all just listen to you because you have all the answers for everything us older folks don't have--all gotten from those Marxist professors who taught you how to go out and demonstrate, right?"

The kid in this picture looks like one whose Daddy should have whacked her on the backside with a paddle when she was about five. One can only imagine what her offspring will be like. The thought scares me and usually I'm not scare of anything.

Well, I thought it was, but then nowadays one never really knows does one?
