Have you guys been watching MoveOn.org? They are going absolutely nuts out there!
I've received 2 dozen Emails from them in the past couple weeks...mostly looking for contributions. I just received this email a little while ago, entitled 1 million jobs. Gone:The usual mindless drivel of course. This one links "$1 of government spending reduces economic output by approximately $1.40." Why not simply propose giving away $100 Trillion yet this year, and pay off the debt with the excess by November? Problem Solved!
But I do not present this bit of banality to discuss their illogical assertions.
But rather to ask:
And, most importantly,
How do we counter these millions of Liberal Sheeple?
We're just not built that way, nor do we have
(or wish to have)
such a massive tripe dispersal organization!
Countering this tripe Vern? We certainly can't reproduce it in Conservative form.......we have something called 'morality' which won't allow us to even consider forging this sort of fantasy. These people more than likely find it easy to tell their children stories of how Tea Party 'terrorists' will come and steal them from their beds and eat them if they don't love president Obama enough. You said it Vern, we are not wired like that. We are not perfect; conservatives, but fibbing isn't ritualistic and chronic for us. There is nothing in our repertoire to match this electronic diarrhea formulated by MoveOn.org (funny how the dot ORG's seem to be something to be avoided)
Vern, I recently had a 'debate' with a 'friend of a friend' on facebook. My friend posted a sheet of 'facts' about Obama's successes over the past three years and I refuted all but one of them. This 'friend' of his hit me with facts, figures and snippets' from several of these 'dot ORG' sites that mirrored MoveOn.org (orc it should be called). Nothing she hit me with was factual; It was all contrived MSM and radical liberal horse dung. (This friend of his, LOL, she leaned heavy on Snopes.com for facts as well!) Point is, I have no lies to counter lies with. All I could hope to do was to pop the fantastic bubble she lives in and hope my facts vs. her fiction made her think......but she sounded so deeply entrenched in her stupidity that she will have to suffer learning the hard way about Obama's ulterior motives for America and will have to suffer hearing "I told you so!" many times before this liberal 'dingbat' would see the light.
We must, as distasteful as it is, argue down these sheeple if only to plant the seeds of factual information. We can't win battles with these "mic checkers" who proverbially make thier point, then cover their ears and say "nana...can't hear you". We must at least place the truth at their feet.......let them claim victory in a one on one debate......but leave them privately to think and consider what we have told them. Many of the sheeple I call "Joe Democrat".....the ones who are not radical but vote along a generational line and would understand the truth if given the chance to be shaken loose of the MSM.
There must be a way to counter the MoveOn.org and like organizations without being disruptive and "troll" like.
Well said, John!
Perhaps it's time to stand up for the poor recipients of the above email. Might they see it as a Lottery?
Now, this makes sense from MoveOn's perspective!
Those who can least afford it are most likely to send in 3 bucks, for a chance at a trip. And, by further depleting their funds it makes them a bit more dependent on Obama.
While it is harmful to their constituency, it is a quite logical to take as much of their limited funds as possible!
Does this not make sense, in a twisted way?
Funny you should mention Lottery, Vern. I had a lottery customer who was in my store every day. He only generally played the 3's and 4's but if the big one was high....he played that too. he spend an average of 20-50 dollars a day and certainly had "a system"...to which I could never understand or calculate. One particular night when he brought a winning ticket into the store, he volunteered that he was "ahead of the game". Naturally I asked how so. His answer was this: He spends 10,000 dollars every year, if for one year he only gets back $5,000 and the following year he gets back $8,000......he honestly believed he was 'ahead of the game' that following year......sounds like a certain President I know of, sound that way to you? Sounds like MoveOn.org thinking to me......lie to yourself and be happy, tell those same lies to others and be proud.
Yep, I see 2 of this type show up at a friend's store regularly. One diligently takes notes in a thick book!
Always mumbles to himself as he leaves, while studying his notes......
Perhaps he thinks believes his big win is past due, since he's lost so much over time. "Law of averages."
Maybe you should send them 3 bucks! After all, you've never won such a trip, and got to hobnob with Moochelle. It's your turn to win, perhaps!
Me sitting down to have chat with Barry and Moochie would be a dream come TRUE!!! There is SO much I have to say to our dear "royal" family I'm BURSTING at the seams! Of course, within 5 minutes I'd be taken out back by the secret service and worked over with a 2x4...but it would be WORTH it!
"Sheeple" is right. I saw a letter to the editor in our local rag this morning in which the writer opined that Obummer was the best president we've ever had because he cares about the little guy and he wants to "give" us health insurance courtesy of Obamacare! He went on to say that we just haven't given the guy a fair chance. I gues almost 4 years of one unmitigated disaster after another isn't enough for some people. There is no cure for stupid.
Ha, just got another one! The core of this email reads:
If you've never been to a convention, you're in for a treat -- you'll get to meet amazing people, hear inspiring speeches, and experience the awesome energy of the convention hall. Getting to meet with the President and First Lady isn't half bad, either.
So chip in $3 or whatever you can and be automatically entered for a chance to join us in Charlotte next month:

P.S. -- Don't worry about finding a hotel or booking a flight -- we're picking up the cost of airfare and accommodations for you and a guest. Enter today.
Perhaps I should take a free trip. What do you think?
Hahaha!!!! What money does Mr Obama think that we have left in our pockets?!? Is he after the leftover lint from the dollar bills we might be carrying?!?
