Unmoved By Your Demands for Ideological Purity

October 13, 2009

OPINIONS LIKE THOSE most often expressed on this website, regarding society, the economy, domestic and foreign policy, are more marginalized now than they were during the Bush years.

Under Bush, these views were enthusiastically embraced by many as they were antithetic to the concerns served by the bumbling monkey and his deranged puppeteer in the white house. Today they are rejected as radical and unreasonable, not just by conservatives, but by liberals as well.

It was to be expected from the Democrats now engaged in ruling the world, as these views oppose the very power they now wield. True to form, Barack Obama has acted not one whit better (in any regard!) than his predecessor. This too, was to be expected. But really, My Obama Loving Friends, is this the best you could Hope™ for?

The issues discussed here all revolve around a single aspect of our society. You might say it’s the defining principle. It’s about power* not party. Of those two things, how many do you have?

* For “power” see the lovely Jack London quote in the sidebar menu.

    Excellent.

    I suspect Obama is a progressive dude; but, as you suggest, the price of power is always to be its servant.

    JRB, your comment reminds me of a Bill Hicks bit:
