The cause, you ask... simple...
In a word... leverage.
Levers, when they unapologetically unwind, have a way of propelling/launching the leverage user across the room unexpectedly.
The cause is easily understood for those who don't mind watching the sausage and laws being made. It is only ancient history to the extent that people forget to learn and prepare for those conditions to return... at which time those conditions WILL return... with a vengeance.
So if I see a cowboy riding the range north of Steamboat, I shouldn't describe him as short, with a small mustache, using a riding crop etc, just because Adolph Hitler was short and had a small mustasche???
That's a load of crap.
Calling balls and strikes is less and less tolerable in a police state.
And just for the record, Pat, I agree with you about how few folks want to hear truth, and how most politicians are liars. You are correct that anyone who tells the truth can't get elected. Apparently anyone who tells the truth cant even get published in a cow-town newspaper...
It is, however, sad that you are happy to be "used by a liar" for ANY outcome, as this means you participated in the lie. Better to have told the truth and/or stood aside. You do no one any favors by "tricking" them into a better life. Here's why...
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” ---CS Lewis

Why not pinpoint your focus of the income inequality to the last 6 years??? Our lord and savior Obama was going to fix that inequality. I guess the lowering of the sea level distracted him a bit...
The planet doesn't send us a bill. It was our "savings account" to deplete as we see fit. And since we have more oil now than we did when we started...?? I'd be more worried about the financial bill we've run up feasting on our own grandchildren coming due than the "planet bill".
If "Ted Cruz says God will provide" seems a clever rhetorical jab at our religion, then think how the other half feels when someone like Obama asks us to faithfully believe that "gubbamint (which is godless and can't fight it's way out of a wet paper bag) will provide".
Many understand that the "Green" movement often resembles a watermelon's "greenness"; green on the outside but red on the inside. Red, as in Communist.
Those who understand communism and how it is applied know from experience and history that communism isn't FOR the communists--it's for every body else. The "Al Gores" of communism eat better food, live in bigger homes, have body guards that carry weapons outlawed to the "rest of us". They make up the rules as they go along and exempt themselves from just about all of them..
The communists always do this because they understand that to actually live under their brain-child system is pure misery.
Ditto for Al Gore and many others in the green movement. Green party leaders like Al Gore would sooner blow his brains out than live the primitive and sacraficial lifestyle he asks his followers to embrace.
Americans today are so clueless and brainwashed by all the green nonsense that they accept limitations and regulation of their future even though those who make the rules break every one of them right under their nose.
If we hadn't gone to public school maybe we'd be smart enough to recognize global warming when we were told by our masters that it existed??
If we hadn't gone to public school you'd be saying "How can you criticize something you haven't experienced?"
What hypocrisy I'm I guilty of, Graham?
I totally trust our education system... just like I totally trust our government. I trust them both to make almost everything they touch WORSE.
Environmentalism is a religion that worships the house while insisting that the house had no builder. I happen to believe that is foolish. There's no hypocrisy there.
No. That's too hard. Calculations make their little heads hurt. Platitudes will have to suffice.
