Can’t ya see it now? “This beauty was only driven by a granny to church on Sundays!” When I have to endure progressive speechifying I get that creepy skin feeling…ya know, dirty? When I was a kid and I would come in sweaty, dusty and dirty from an afternoon of killing Nazi’s or building forts, playing ball on a dirt field or climbing trees – my favorite – mom would rush me to the bath to remove the “creeping crud” as she called it. Well progressive politics and their selling methods leave me feeling like I need to take a bath to remove the “creeping crud.”
Progressive salesmen are just used car salesmen, except instead of trying to convince you to buy a crappy jalopy, they are trying to get people to but a crappy, misguided and misleading ideology. A crappy car will inconvenience one; a crappy and misleading ideology will lead to a crappy nation. And please, any used car salesmen, I apologize for lumping you in with progressives, but when it comes to slimy in the mind’s eye, well, progressive salesmen and seedy used car salesmen are both ass deep in the muck.
I wanna ask, like the commercial admonishes, for the “carfax. And like the commercial, when I ask a progressive for the “carfax” I get gobbledygook in reply. These low brow clowns aren’t even smart enough to come up with a clever or otherwise plausible lie for Christsakes! Like used car salesman Bill Barfsalot, instead of straight answers they guide us to misdirection. “Show me the carfax” results in the progressive salesman redirecting the conversation by pointing out an even better jalopy for me to look at. It’s the identical principle – distract the questioner with a different shiny object.
I am not so subject to the power of suggestion to fall for that, hence why I ride these SOB’s like the broken down mules they are. Show me the carfax that what you, Bill Barfsalot, claims are the facts, and I might buy what you’re trying to sell me. If I ask for the carfax and I am redirected to “look at my eyes, look at my eyes, not at my hands….look at my eyes,” (a reference to Britcom sketch comedy show Little Britain) I know a snow job is being delivered.
Conservatism is the manifestation of being skeptical. I laugh out loud when some try to play it off as if one is conservative it’s cause they are of limited intelligence. If one asks me, the limited intelligence crowd are those that fall for hopey-changy platitudes. I am like a Missourian – SHOW ME! Prove to me that progressivism is the superior ideology and I will be a progressive for life. I am about the empirical truth and not platitudes. Hence why Bill Barfsalot does not sell cars to me.
But good old Barfsalot is selling cars to someone, although based on recent polling, the numbers willing to buy a car from him without seeing the carfax is a dwindling number. Liberalism is shrinking while “70%” now admit they agree with the policies of the Tea Party. So who is it who’s not smart enough to see the forest for the trees? Who is it who would still lie and claim “Liberalism/progressivism is on the rise?” Hello? Anyone? Yeah, that’s what I thought.
The election of Barack Obama and the progressive majority was clearly a mistake on the part of the fools who fell for hopey change. As for me, I am clean and free of the creeping crud these fools are covered in. I saw through the hopey change and so did tens of millions of my fellows. And now tens of millions more have awakened, rushed to the bath and are now themselves free of the sliminess of buying a used car from a salesman who when asked for the carfax, changes the subject post haste.
And Obama recently claimed it’s the citizens who are factually challenged when he opined “Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we’re hardwired not to always think clearly when we’re scared.”
No Barack, we are thinking very clearly, thank you.
