This will be the last fundraiser and begging bowl action. If I can raise enough through your kind donations to fund this site 'til the end of the year the donate button will be removed for good. It is due to your kind generosity that I have managed to keep this site running for the last few months. So if you all could make one last donation it would be much appreciated.

United, But Divided

 


By Alan Caruba

The nation united to celebrate Thanksgiving, but as anyone who follows the polls can confirm, it is sharply divided. In many ways, half of those polled see America opposite to the other half.

In early November the Associated Press reported on a survey of 20,168 voters by Edison Research. It included results from interviews as voters left a random sample of 281 precincts on Election Day, November 4. As we know, the results of the election have been interpreted as a sharp rebuke to President Obama and the Democratic Party. Power in the Senate shifted to the Republican Party that also gained more seats in the House and added to the number of governors, bringing them to 29 of the 50 states.

For conservatives that is very good news. Politically Democrats feel so endangered that one of its top voices, Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York just announced that passing ObamaCare was a big mistake, noting that the Party should have focused on the economy.

That is an extraordinary confession and one that abandons the President whose name is associated with the Affordable Care Act. The Democratic Party has been captured by the far Left, but Schumer seemed to be saying it has to move more to the center if it has any hope in the 2016 elections.

The Associated Press reported that “Fifty-four percent of those who voted for Democrats said the country is headed in the right direction, while 88 percent of Republican voters think it’s on the wrong track.”  One has to wonder how anyone could learn that one-out-of-five Americans on Thanksgiving Day was using food stamps and conclude this reflects the right direction.

On November 7 The Washington Post reported “With 214,000 jobs added in October, the unemployment rate ticked down to 5.8 percent, the lowest level in six years, even as more workers entered the job market.”  The official unemployment rate is widely believed to be half of what the actual rate is nationwide after one factors in data the bureaucrats ignore or fudge. 

Not surprisingly, “Nearly 9 in 10 of those who voted for Republicans think the economy is in bad shape, compared with just over half of Democratic voters.”  Here again, the difference is perceptions is dramatic with conservatives having a more realistic point of view, but if more than half the Democratic voters think the economy is bad, that suggests the 2016 elections may reflect the recent midterms.

In some ways the AP poll depicted a difference based on what one might deem a more “mature” take on the state of the nation as opposed to those who ignore its problems to hold a more hopeful one, even if the facts do not support that judgement. “Sixty-four percent of Republican voters, but only 30 percent of Democratic voters, think life for the next generation of Americans will be worse than life today.”

The failure to embrace reality over propaganda was dramatically demonstrated by a question about climate change generated a response of “86 percent of those who backed Democrats” calling it “a serious problem”, while two-thirds of Republican voters said it was not. This means that 19 years into a planetary cooling cycle and a winter that has arrived a month early this year, Democratic voters—liberals—still cling to the belief that climate change, instead of reflecting the lower radiation levels of the Sun, is caused by human activity that generates a trace gas called carbon dioxide, all 0.04% of it in the atmosphere.

In a world where every day brings news of Islamic barbarism in the Middle East and Africa, “only 6 in 10 Democratic voters said they were worried by the threat of terrorism, while “8 in 10 Republican voters” took the threat seriously.

There are social differences between Republicans and Democrats. Of the Republican voters, 87% percent were white, while 61% of voters backing Democratic candidates were; 70% of Republican voters were married, compared with 55% of Democratic ones.

There were other differences among the two sets of voters, but suffice to say that each group lives in its own version of America and there are major gaps in their perception of the nation and the world.

The election reflected that a large portion of the voters demonstrated they prefer a conservative approach to government. If that trend continues—and it likely will—the 2016 elections will represent a major change from the two terms of President Obama and a rejection of his domestic and foreign policies.

Until then America will remain a nation divided politically and, given our diversity, within many social groups defined by gender, race, wealth, and age. Demography, the study of population, suggests that Americans are growing older in larger numbers than other subsets. Those “old folks” may just be the deciding factor in coming elections.

Look at Chicago..................from Rico

This poster makes a very valid point.

Gun control does NOT equate to crime control.
- Americans can look to Chicago, home of some of the harshest 'gun control' laws in the land thanks to the control of "progressive" Democrats (C) and constantly in the running for (gun) crime capitol of the US.

Criminals do not care about 'gun control' laws beyond the political criminals making sure that the law-abiding citizens are disarmed and easy prey for them both.

It's only about 'control' and you're a fool if you cede this control to politicians or criminals (the redundancy couldn't be helped, sorry).

The message being sent................from Rico

Background: Remember the riots of 1965? The Rodney King riots in the 80's? Then think about those Korean shop owners who protected themselves.

This regime via the 'staged' and enabled Ferguson riots is sending a very clear message. It's crystal clear.

YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN

The State will NOT protect you, your life, or your property. The law-abiding are now at the 'mercy' of the lawless looters and rioters.

THINK ABOUT IT

The "shakedown​" continues.​....................from Rico

The IRS.
- The "lost" Lois Lerner tapes they lied about. The taxpayer data they shared with the Red Shed....er, White House. Ring any bells for you?

Here's another one.

The IRS thinks you may have "too much" money sheltered from them in an IRA. They are considering 'capping' balances you will be allowed to have. They are considering what you will be allowed to own in your IRA.
- The GAO is already 'looking' at the 43 million IRA owners on their behalf.

Of course, this is for your own good. They only want to protect you from having too much money saved for your retirement. They are your friend, and you can trust them.
- It has nothing to do with their notion that they are 'losing' roughly $17 billion in potential TAX revenue.

Naw...shaking-down the sheeple for more money couldn't have anything to do with it.

Why isn't Chicago burning?............................from Rico

Three months after the Ferguson shooting, there have been 155 murders (74% black males), 725 people shot & wounded, and 10 shot (5 killed) by the police.

So why isn't Chicago burning?
- Where is the hashtag?
- Where is the race pimp trio of Barry, Al, and Je$$e?

Why is the diminutive Mayor of Chicago Rohm Enamel, former ballerina turned Democrat (C), and BFF with Barry oddly silent?
- Maybe this isn't crisisey enough so it CAN be a wasted opportunity.

Barry's ability to LIE with a straight face never ceases to amaze me.

He boldly tells the biggest whoppers, and almost seems to believe in them himself.

As with everything else, and every word he utters, so THIS statement about "real issues" is breathtaking...coming from the master architect of racial divide and chief fire-starter himself.

NO, these are NOT real issues.

The Face of Leftist Racism. Just stop!......................from Rico

This is the result of, and the face of, Leftist Racism.
- And it is accompanied by a helpful map of where you don't want to go if you are white.

There WAS an archaic racist term called "coon ass" (usage: "going coon ass") that has now been resurrected as a valid non-racist descriptor for humans who behave like monkeys flinging poo at one another in a zoo.

So let's call a spade a spade here: If you don't like the term, or are offended by it, then QUIT BEHAVING THIS WAY and stop the coon ass.
- Just stop!

Yes, I'm talking to YOU Barry, Eric, Al, and the rest of your racist fellow Democrats (C). You OWN this one.
- Shame on all of you!
