Shut up liberals, because you were wrong

Liberals need to keep their big traps shut for the next 10 years because so far in the 21st century, they have been wrong about everything. They were wrong about science, health care, economics, and the Global War On Terrorism.

And more.

Let's go through the lies.

1. Global warming. Yes, the atmosphere serves as insulation for the planet. No, a trace gas is not responsible for 28 percent of the heat trapped. Every single prediction -- from cities underwater to the North Pole being ice free -- has proved false. The 2009 Climategate emails proved the United Nations outright lied in its Nobel-winning report on the subject. The federal government can manipulate data all it wants, but global warming is a lie. A liberal lie. They were wrong.

2. Obamacare. Designed to solve a problem that was overstated (47 million Americans "without" health insurance was a canard concocted by liberal operatives at the Census Bureau) Obaacare failed miserably. The plan was to force young people buy health insurance and use their premiums to cover the cost of insuring old sick people. Young people paid the tax instead. The result is higher premiums, higher deductibles, less coverage and likely more "uninsured" using the old Census Bureau definition. However, once Obamacare passed, the Census Bureau stopped asking if you had health insurance for every day in the past year.

3. The stimulus. Democrats spent $787 billion (including tax relief) to revive the economy in 2009. This led to the slowest recovery in the history of the nation's economy, even slower than FDR's.

4. The War. Liberals told us waterboarding would recruit Muslim terrorists. Liberals told us the Iraq War would recruit Muslim terrorists. What happened? By 2004, Al-Qaida was on the run and Iran and Libya stopped pursuing nuclear arms. Then along came Obama. We stopped waterboarding, and we pulled out of Iraq. Not only did Al-Qaida rebound but the Islamic State rose. Then we bombed neutral Libya and triggered a wave of immigration to Italy, and rewarded Iran for its spread of terrorism and renewed pursuit of nuclear arms.

Liberals made a mess of the economy, health insurance and the war on terrorism.

They should do the decent thing and just shut up. We shall see if Trump can fix this catastrophe.


  1. With the way things have been going, all we have to do is wait a few years and all of those things will be the policies of Conservatism Inc. Then the libs will shut up about them and set the next agenda for our conservative leadership.

  2. Liberals told us that if we simply removed dictators from power in Middle East hellholes that Jeffersonian democracy would spontaneously establish itself.
    W removed the Iraqi dictator, resulting in a failed state and the nest of terrorists we call ISIS. (Neocons like the whole Bush clan are merely a subspecies of liberal.)
    Obama and Hillary tried the same stunt in Libya, with the same result as in Iraq. Failed state and nest of terrorists.
    Obama and Hillary tried the same stupidity in Egypt and Syria. Luckily the Egyptians resisted and successfully reestablished their military dictatorship. Luckily for Syria, the Russians came to their aid to thwart American liberal plans and it looks like Assad will be able to reestablish stability in Syria.
    I guess the Middle East is adjusting to American liberal/neocon stupidity. Or maybe Obama and Hillary are just less competent at destroying Middle Eastern countries. Or maybe a combination.
    But one thing you can say about liberals. Failure of their policies in the real world does not deter them from doing the same thing over and over again.

  5. "Are the peoples of the Middle East somehow beyond the reach of liberty? Are millions of men and women and children condemned by history or culture to live in despotism? Are they alone never to know freedom, and never even to have a choice in the matter? I, for one, do not believe it." George W. Bush (November 6, 2003)

    You'll have a long wait for that better spring to bring forth less bitter fruit in the Middle East, George.

  6. "They should do the decent thing and just shut up"

    Even when silent, Liberals will cause trouble. The decent thing for them to do would be to die...not that I am insisting on it. I just think it would be helpful to the rest of us---and very much appreciated---if they gave it consideration.

  7. The recovery you mentioned, Don; I keep seeing references to it, but beyond that I've only seen smoke and mirrors, and not much of them.

  8. Just as dangerous as the liberals are those on the right who get coaxed into going along with the liberal plan because they got sucked in by leftist platitudes like "because it's the right thing to do (despite any evidence)" and "it's for the common good." I actually resent them more because they should know better.

  9. Iapetus has the right idea.

  10. They aren't actually "liberals." They are Contrarians. A contrarian is a person who takes up a contrary position, especially a position that is opposed to that of the majority, regardless of how unpopular it may be. Contrarian styles of argument and disagreement have historically been associated with radicalism and dissent. - Elric
