Undefined terms don't mean much in politics. Here is my attempt at defining Leftist, although perhaps (in deference to left-handers) I really ought to make this the definition of "Statist", a group that is politically left of center:

<Leftist/Statist>: Someone whose first instinct, for any problem of any type that society faces, is to turn to Central Government and its elite planners to impose a theoretical solution on the populace, rather than allow private individuals (a much greater trove of inventiveness) or the free market (a much fairer way of determining winners) to find the best practical solution.

  PinnedPiece: <KK> Thanks for the Christmas greeting. Here in the U.S. it is almost not allowed any more if you want to be thought a considerate person; it is (more and more) considered disrespectful to wish this to anyone who is not a "born again Christian."

I look over the dozens of "Christmas cards" we received this year. We have a wide mix of Christian and non-Christian friends, but I see the "Seasons Greetings" type well predominate. Certainly no business sends a "Merry Christmas" wish anymore. The seasons are greeted by my dentist, by my heart surgeon, by my insurance agent, by my own company, by several clients I have had, and by my town council (over mainstreet) when I drive downtown.

I can't help thinking an important historical heritage is in the process of being discarded here.

Sure, as you can readily see on the Santa page, this year Chessgames is giving out the most free memberships ever. Aren't they? They are so rolling in the black, aren't they? Well, they aren't.

I think you have no idea what you're calling goofy, and what you know about business conditions in the USA, and what it takes to be savvy about this stuff.

You may be good at anarchy, but small business ain't your calling.

Jan-28-14  GREYSTRIPE: A 3x3 chess-board cannot sine Gauss E-12-E with a Rook. The way to unpin a pinned Rook is to remove the Rook. Gauss then moves the King one forward in sines of E-12-E n

This prevents the pinned rook, removed from the 3x3 chess-board, properly-placed on the chess-board of 32 pieces-weighted, from being in the way of an apposite chess-mechanism. In this manner, effulgent chess-play is enabled...

  PinnedPiece: ===Obama: Destroying a nation===

How would you do that?

Increase government handout programs to record levels (supplemental nutrition program, free health insurance, and so on), and open the borders to all of Latin America.

Our border agents have been pretty much called off the job by Eric Holder and Obama's executive orders; the spike in illegals (and the huge increase in misery stories from those fooled by coyotes, border drug wars, etc) has never been higher.

<With detention facilities, asylum offices and immigration courts overwhelmed, enough migrants have been released temporarily in the United States that back home in Central America people have heard that those who make it to American soil have a good chance of staying.

“Word has gotten out that we’re giving people permission and walking them out the door,” said Chris Cabrera, a Border Patrol agent who is vice president of the local of the National Border Patrol Council, the agents’ union. “So they’re coming across in droves.”>

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/11/u...

Simply put, no national culture or socio-economic system is going to survive such a dual onslought.

Are these policies a result of Obama's ideology, ignorance, or incompetence?

Obama couldn't agree more with Vladimir Lenin regarding the nature of Western Capitalism.

<And so in capitalist society we have a democracy that is curtailed, wretched, false, a democracy only for the rich, for the minority. The dictatorship of the proletariat, the period of transition to communism, will for the first time create democracy for the people, for the majority, along with the necessary suppression of the exploiters, of the minority.>

Recall Vladimir Lenin's dictum that things must fall apart before they can be rebuilt. And socialist leadership must hasten that collapse.

Americans ranching or vacationing near the Mexican border now take their lives into their hands on a daily basis. And this border anarchy is creeping deeper and deeper....

<“There’s no doubt they’re spreading themselves very rapidly and very deep into our U.S. interior,” said Mr. Fleming, who directed the documentary “Drug Wars” and has testified before Congress about the drug trade. >

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news...

Is Holder ignorant of these problems? Absolutely not. So there is no other explanation for why the DOJ is systematically tying the hands of the southern border states to handle the problem, but that socialist principles will be served:

Examples:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dy...

http://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/2011/...

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/11/u...

http://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiep...

....and on and on.

The big problem with Republicans these days is that no one is willing to take the blunt trauma of accusations of racism that COUNTERING OBAMA'S POLICIES would mean. In the United States today, it is possible to bend any rule, fight any concern for public safety, defeat any measure to protect our voting system from fraud, with accusations of racism.

The paradox is that people FROM EVERY RACE including legal Mexican immigrants, have expressed great alarm at Obama's policies.

Conclusion: Obama doesn't mind if our institutions collapse (health care among them) because such a crises provides socialists the opportunity to finally rebuild it correctly.

History shows it's a nation's death every time.

  PinnedPiece: The story behind Obama's re-election, written in hard facts and figures:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5Vo...

Not a good era in which to be identified as a "journalist" or sr. editor in our <MSM> or <MM> "major media." The clear evidence is for major mediocrity, or worse major mendacity. At any rate, major failures in the service of informing the general public.

Brent Bozell's book "Collusion" is more than confirmed by a CBS "straight news" reporter who has shown no particular bias over the years, Sharyl Attkisson. Here she explains why she (and other reporters) have quit the <MM>.

http://blog.heritage.org/2014/04/13...

Here she explains why major news organizations don't want the headache of dealing with Obama's news intimidation campaign.

Glad you can find amusement in the situation. As an added bonus, note that the number of people on welfare has never been higher than now, the price of energy has never been higher than now---a double whammy for the poor--and the price of gasoline will soon reach record levels.

In situations like this with any Republican in office, the Democrats in conjunction with the media (as we know from repeated experiences) join forces to accuse:

1) The administration of ignoring the poor

2) Big Oil/Gas/Energy of price gouging

3) the Republican administration with collusion as well---collusion with Big Oil!!!!

So where are the media stories on the poor and how they are hurt by rising meat prices? Rising energy prices? Rising health care prices? Ha ha that's funny.

So where are the media stories on the price of gas as a result of corrupt administrative policies? Collusion with Big Energy? Fatal cave-ins to special interests with deep pockets?

Ha Ha! Expecting this cowed/wowed/bowed media to do stories on this president in that vein is to produce classic humor indeed. And of course during the 2012 election the stories actually focused on how all of that was improving. Remember the "magical" goal of <8% unemployed? (The Big Jump a month before the election!) Echoed two years later with the magical "Big Jump" up to 7.1 Million insured through Obamacare!

Has the major media ever challenged any of these government statistics with any sincerity? You're trying to make me laugh! Certainly not during the final months of he 2012 campaign!!!

No--they spend their time explaining to us what Obama really meant by "You didn't build that yourself."

Ha ha, all great fun!

Next up: Unchallenged Government census figures showing the magical reduction in uninsured!

Sure to produce belly laughs.

  Jim Bartle: Wait. You presented that video as "the story behind Obama's reelection." All it is is Republican boilerplate, and complaints about journalists doing their jobs covering Republicans. His only half-decent point is the press didn't cover a couple of issues bad for Democrats (Fast and Furious, for example) as much as they should.

But really, Bozell is just a joke.
