The Curse of Freedom — for the Governing Class

Curse or blessing? You decide, but results
may differ in California and Texas.

ObamaCare Pigs

I hadn’t intended to post a second article today, but then I watched this Bill Whittle video and couldn’t resist.

My wife, Jeanie, was raised in California and remembers well a time when at least Northern California was not as Mr. Whittle describes the State now. Living briefly in Los Angeles in the early 1970’s, when she was a Pan Am flight attendant on international flights originating at LAX, she experienced and understood the trend which has now engulfed the rest of the State. She moved back north because it was more congenial there and because that’s where most of her family lived. Now resident in Panamá, she occasionally returns to the San Jose – San Francisco area and is saddened to find that it has become much as Bill Whittle describes the rest of the State. One very unfortunate aspect is that the young people there have no bases for comparison and seem to have accepted the new status quo.

Why do substantial numbers of libruls want (for themselves) the freedom to impose their views and demands on the rest of us? Aside from their apparent successes and the aphrodisiac nature of power, it must be because of their perception that we are too stupid to agree with them and hence need to be helped. Why do “normal” people accept it? I wish I knew; perhaps they are too young to have known anything better. Whatever may be the reason for acceptance, the great librul “kindness” toward mere mortals may emasculate us — and diminish all that we cherish — if we let them do it.
