I have Decided to Become a Liberal Democrat

I have decided to abandon being a libertarian with an asterisk.

I am now converting fully, wholeheartedly with no aims of deception or evasion to the creed of Liberal Democrat (LD). My new heroes are Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Sean Penn, Jesse Jackson, Barack Obama, Elizabeth Warren, Barbara Streisand, and Cher.

I realize that I have spent my life in futility, in an evil, pointless battle against LDism.

I repent my false beliefs. I want the benefits that come with being an LD follower. My life has not many years left to run, so I can cash in now and let somebody else pay after I am gone. I am now a Democrat, a Liberal Democrat. I want free things, many, many free things.

I hope you continue to read my blog and appreciate the nature of the gut-wrenching soul searching that went into this conversion.

Thank you, and please note the date. I propose that from now on April 1 be renamed Liberal Democrat Day.

  2. "I am now converting fully, wholeheartedly with no aims of deception or evasion to the creed of Liberal Democrat (LD).

A man of your perception, experience, and and and empathy make it a scandal it's taken so long. Now that's taken care of I can take my medicine and go back to my Shirley McClaine marathon.

  3. Happy opening day, joker.

    You'd be amazed how many geezers actually end up voting that way, after years of defending the philosophy of guaranteeing individual rights by limiting the reach of government. I understand taking the benefits as compensation for the insult of progressive governance, or to aid the ignition of the house of cards. I cannot fathom actually voting for the predators while knowing better.

    Now you must pay the tithe and remove these evil objects from the hands of the heathen you have recently fled.

  6. I needed some humor today. I found out this morning that my sweet boy heads back to war next month. He has been 11 times officially but many more unofficially.
    I spent the entire morning crying.....says a lot about my faith but those tears had to be shed. I should have looked and found this. Thank you Diplomad....I needed a smile today.

    1. Remember ETR even Jesus wept.He wept at the tomb of Lazarus and he knew the miracle that was about to happen. He wept over things he could not change such as the hearts of those in 1st century Jerusalem. Our faith does not cancel out our humanity and our tears do not necessarily mean we trust less. I will be praying for you and yours. Many blessings.

    3. Thank you. Although unseen, I trust that you will pray for yet another warrior whose mama, having gone through this so much, sees it another time, with a worried heart. Tears still flowed today but I know that when I see him next week at the Palo Dura Canyon, I will be dried eyed and composed. I always am, because he must see that.
      God is good.....and may he bless you all...ETR

  8. Ah, methinks La Deception Grande, comes but once per annum. That's a good thing. Cause reality already makes me examine much to see if it is perchance April's fool's days, nearly every day these days.

    Funny one, Boss. Funny one.

  9. Had you posted that on March 1st, your appreciative readers would have suspected that the bad guys had secretly injected you with a concoction of stupid and evil. I hear that stuff lasts forever.

  10. And 'bout time, Mr D. Henceforth, you can commiserate in tweets with such towering intellects as Cher, Rosie O'Donnell, Bonny Fwank, Al Sharpton, et. al....oh, and not to forget the ever perspicacious Sean Penn. So there!

  11. DiploMad, was your experience something like this?

    The full text of George Orwell's 1984
    at MSXNet [edited]
    [My apologies to George Orwell]

    === ===
    O'Brien: 'Do you remember writing in your diary, "Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four"?'

    'Yes,' said Winston.

    O'Brien held up the notecard. 'How many uninsured does this show?'

    Winston: 'Thirty million.'

    O'Brien: 'And if the party says that it is not thirty million, but zero -- then how many?'

    Winston: 'Thirty million.'

    His answer ended in a gasp of pain. The needle of the dial had shot up to fifty-five. Fifty-five pages per minute of ObamaCare regulations sped before his eyes. Winston wanted to look away, but couldn't. The drugs forced him to read the blur of meaningless words. His mind recoiled in horror.

    O'Brien watched him. He drew back the lever. This time the pain was only slightly eased.

    'How many uninsured, Winston?'

    'Thirty million.'

    The needle went up to sixty.

    'How many uninsured, Winston?'

    'Thirty! Thirty! What else can I say? Thirty million!'

    The needle must have risen again, but he did not look at it. The heavy, stern face and the notecard filled his vision. The notecard stood up before his eyes, enormous, blurry, and seeming to vibrate, but unmistakably showing thirty million.

    'How many uninsured, Winston?'

    'Thirty! Stop it, stop it! How can you go on? Thirty!'

    'How many uninsured, Winston?'

    'Zero! Zero! Zero!'

    'No, Winston, that is no use. You are lying. You still think there are Thirty million. Again, how many uninsured, please?'

    'Thirty! Zero! Thirty! Anything you like. Only stop it, stop the pain!

    Abruptly he was sitting up with O'Brien's arm round his shoulders. He had perhaps lost consciousness for a few seconds. He had the feeling that O'Brien was his protector, that the pain was something that came from outside, from some other source, and that it was O'Brien who would save him from it.

    'You are a slow learner, Winston,' said O'Brien gently.

    'How can I help it?' he blubbered. 'How can I help seeing what is in front of my eyes? Two and two are four.

    Sometimes, Winston. Sometimes they are five. Sometimes they are zero. Sometimes they are all of them at once. You must try harder. It is not easy to become sane.'

    He laid Winston down on the bed. The man in the white coat bent down and felt his pulse, laid an ear against his chest, tapped here and there, then he nodded to O'Brien.

    'Again,' said O'Brien.

    The pain flowed into Winston's body. The needle must be at seventy, seventy-five. He knew that the notecard was still there, and still thirty million. All that mattered was somehow to stay alive until the spasm was over. He had ceased to notice whether he was crying out or not. The pain lessened again. He opened his eyes. O'Brien had drawn back the lever.

    'How many uninsured, Winston?'

    'Thirty million. I suppose there are. I would see zero if I could. I am trying to see zero.'

    'Which do you wish: to persuade me that you see zero, or really to see zero?'

    'Really to see zero.'

    'Again,' said O'Brien.

    Perhaps the needle was eighty -- ninety. Winston could not intermittently remember why the pain was happening. Behind his screwed-up eyelids a forest of figures seemed to be moving in a sort of dance, weaving in and out, disappearing behind one another and reappearing again. He was trying to count them, he could not remember why.

    'How many uninsured, Winston?'

    'I don't know. I don't know. You will kill me if you do that again. zero, thirty, sixty million -- in all honesty I don't know.'

    'Better,' said O'Brien.

    1. Better, less pain--now I know--not "illegal" immigrants, there are no "illegals". There are no "illegal immigrants. Full defense is "zero nukes" is full defense. Other's nukes is "zero nukes", to know is to be fully defended.

      Yes, now I know the cause of the pain, that just keeps getting worse!!!

      Oh, so cathartic, ahhh..........Change, eternal Hope..

    4. It's hard to quit when you can even get farther ahead, in this argument, in this Brave New World. Just think, nowadays, it's not illegal to kill 3 cops and become a radical left university (Columbia) perfessor, you can be charged with murder in S. Africa and blade run in global competition at the same time, and cheat on bike races, and compete again, in swimming, with no drug tests either, ha (Oh, Lance, ya fooled ‘em once….).

      You can read this nonsense headline, on April 4, 13, Australian Judge Finds Muslim “Cultural Differences” Valid Excuse for Rape, in FrontPage. Hussein had a few alternate aliases, did a little blow, weed, “Hey, that’s OK, he’s our man (boy, kid, actually). And the beat goes on, da, da, da.

      See, nothing can be wrong, and everything will go alright, see it here:

      http://frontpagemag.com/2013/dgreenfield/obama-inc-unveils-brilliant-plan-to-cause-second-economic-crisis-with-bad-loans/

      So much more is getting to be completely legal, “normal”, and yea verily, I say, non-judgmental, with eternal (non-ego harming) equality, and equivalency, for all, no matter the bad or good deed done, which is the great new worshipful god of the righteous left, liberal, progressive.

      No right can be wrong, and no wrong can be right, so, no right or wrong, in hussein’s Brave New World.

  12. Now you don't even have to be diplomatic. You can call people anything you want, on your free Obamaphone, and suffer no consequences. Wear colorful gaudy clothes. Drugs. Tattoo's everywhere. Rock and Roll.

    Pardon me, I have a piece of paper with "Jesus" written on it that I have to step on.
