Mad About You

Newsweek, the same declining rag that happily proclaimed in 2009 “We Are All Socialists Now”,  has, in conjunction with the Daily Beast, conducted a poll in which it finds that Americans these days are irate about almost everything.  In fact, they claim that 33% of us are even unhappy with the job God is doing–He’s doing worse than Obama!  As Richie Ashburn, the late, great Philadelphia Phillies color man used to lament to his  broadcast partner, “That’s hard to believe, Harry.”  In their preface to the poll results, the Newsweek/Beasties cheerfully anointed the racist pseudo-intellectual Cornel West and the socialist economist from Berkeley Robert Reich as “great thinkers”, so now I’m angry:

As unemployment hits 9.1 percent, Americans are losing their cool. A Newsweek/Daily Beast poll finds rising anger levels affecting everything from work to sex drive. Plus, great thinkers from Cornel West to Robert Reich tell us what they’re angry about.

[…] No wonder David Bowie was afraid of Americans.

A new Newsweek/Daily Beast poll finds that Americans are angry about…pretty much everything. From President Obama to congressional Republicans to even God (who has a 33 percent approval rating), everyone needs to watch out for an angry mob coming their way.

Note that Congressional Democrats, who in any relatively sane country would have long ago been chased out of the capitol by pitchfork-wielding mobs, are conveniently omitted from Newsweek’s roster of culprits while Republicans, in control of but one house of Congress, and that for only less than 6 months, are given equal billing with the Socialist-In-Chief and the Lord Almighty.  Not a mention of Janet From Another Planet, Obama’s Chief Homeland Security crotch-grabber, who recently argued in all seriousness that the terrorist screening of young Muslim men is “not using good logic.”  According to Rasmussen, Janet FAP, the most unpopular member of a highly unpopular cabinet, is approved of by but 23% of respondents.  You wouldn’t know it by studying Newsweek’s polling data.  But then you wouldn’t know much of anything else either.

  1. They needed to do a poll to know that people are mad? That tells volumes about the people doing the polling.

    You’re right, JIM, and they really piss me off…

  3. Otis P. Driftwood says:

    No wonder we’re angry – with “great thinkers” like Cornel West and Robert Reich who wouldn’t be? If they are great, I’d hate to see the un-great.

    More propaganda every day, continuously.
    The polls are so skewed as to be irrelevant.
    The eggheads got us into this mess, and now they put more of them out there to further muddy the water.
    Conservative principles are our measuring stick.
    Romney is a RINO.
    Gingrich is a RINO.
    I don’t know enough about the others yet to form an opinion.
    Conservative awareness is essential.
    We cannot afford another backdoor election.

    BTW, Bob,….I have been sucked into jury duty for the next three months.
    Bummer !

      3 months! Man, mine was 1 day or 1 trial. Of course, I ended up with the trial–I always do. Only took a week, though. I feel for ya, brother!

      • AFVET says:

        Bob, the way they stated it in the letter, I would be on ‘notice’ for three months.
        They will contact me if I am needed.
        Kinda like standby in the military. :_

    I know it’s a taboo topic in a lot of places, but I am going to ask, WHEN do we stop talking and get on with the business of taking this nation back?

    Perhaps it really IS time to get serious about the Tenth Amendment and the fact that the Federal Government, along with their minions, are the biggest DOMESTIC enemies the American people face.

    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

    We, the states, DO have rights, and regardless the claims of some, the War Between the States was fought over those rights. Slavery was an issue, but it was not THE issue nor was it the root cause. The Confederacy felt that they were being persecuted by the establishment in Washington must like the United States was being persecuted and exploited by England in 1776.

    Today the Federal Government is once again reaching far over their designated range and is attempting to control any and everything that happens in all 50 states, or 57 states if you’re Barack Hussein Obama. Just sayin’…

    Some states didn’t take kindly to the Federal government and its domination, and on December 20th, 1860, South Carolina held a secession convention in Charleston. The debate was quick and short. Representatives voted unanimously, 169 to 0 for secession. Some states are NOT going to take this treatment sitting still today either.

    Remember these words America:

    When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We may be closer to needing to stand BY those words again than in any time in U.S. history.

    I don’t want to see another conflagration like the one that some call *The Civil War*, but if it takes a WAR to re-secure our freedoms, then WAR it needs to be, and I hope the great state of TEXAS leads the way.

    Deo vindice.

  7. Texas Fred’s comment is spot on.

  8. roxannadanna says:

    These liberal rags like Newsweek and Time cannot stand on their own and have to be propped up by other entities. They are failures and have failed.

    As to Texas Fred – I think the proof will be in the ’12 election. If this man is re-elected, I think THEN we will see some major uprising. As Ann Coulter has said in Demonic: Conservatives are not like a mob, they don’t engage in violence. And we will be patient only so long – until November 2012. If things do not change in the peaceable manner of the voting booth, we will see things change in a more violent way.

      To expand on your thoughts Roxy, term limits need to be instituted asap.
      The parasites in congress need to know that they have to go back to the private/public sector THAT THEY CANNOT CONTROL FROM THE BULLY PULPIT OF A CONGRESSIONAL SEAT..
      Anthony Weiner has no skills in the private sector, he is not a lawyer. Resign, NEVER !
      Take the microphone away from them, and they tend to wither on the vine.
      The next representatives we elect should be questioned on their opinion of establishing term limits.
      Depending on their answer, we should tell them in the polls, we either need them or we don’t.
      Our goal is to restore America period.
