The Five Stages of a
Conservative’s Grief

American Spectator, by David Catron

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 11/12/2012 6:35:31 AM

Last Tuesday evening I went to bed in denial, thinking that there must be some mistake. I declined to believe that a majority of the voters were stupid enough to re-elect a President whose incompetence makes Jimmy Carter seem Washingtonian by comparison, whose mendacity far surpasses that of a pathological liar like Bill Clinton, and whose administration is so corrupt that it actually evokes nostalgia for the Nixon era. (Snip) On Wednesday, forced to face the grim reality of the election results, I became angry. My seething thoughts turned first to the “news” media.

I´m making plans as these libs celebrate. Massive voter fraud and all we can do is shrug our shoulders. The corruption we´ve seen is only the tip of the iceberg. I wonder how long the money will last before the looting starts?

I agree, #2. We´ll never walk it back, but we can gather our spirits up and realize we have a bigger fight now than we had in 2009 and 2010. And we did pretty darn well in 2010 (except for Harry Reid, that is.... this one´s personal to me!).

Of course, one thing we CAN´T do, that the Democrat/Progressives are so good at, is pay our side to stay on our side. We could, actually, but that goes against everything we say we´re for.

I´ve been through these grief stages at least twice since election night, and I´m back at despondency currently. I was all up in FIGHT for 2 days immediately after, but I keep thinking..... what´s the point.

We are still HALF the country - if not more. We just don´t cheat and steal. We need to start fighting for our country on the same level they are fighting to destroy it.

We must never give up. Never, never, never, never, never. (Thanks, Winston Churchill).

Fight for our republic. And ask God to help us reclaim it. Let us be the country God intended us to be. If we are part of something that God is blessing, and they are working for the destruction of good things (such as Christianity) we will win. Eventually.

Either we still control the house or we don´t.

Either all funding originates in the house or it doesn´t.

Which is it ?

We should be able to hamstring this government and hope they don´t like it.

A pretty good article. However, I don´t agree with his assertion that Romney was a weak candidate. Over the past week or so, I´ve come to the conclusion that a campaign of ideas isn´t going to work anymore. Which is a testament to the idiocy of our voting public that prefers MTV & Dancing with the Stars, rather than developing their intellect.

What does that leave us for the future? The only way a campaign of ideas like Romney ran is going to sell, is to sugar-coat it or wrap it in a pretty package. The only other alternative would be to adopt Obama´s tactic of presenting no ideas, but demonize the opponent and divide their base. Without the help of the media, that doesn´t seem likely for the GOP.

There seems to be a pattern to Presidencies these days. Democrat alternates with Republican. Each President is given two terms unless the public perceive there to be extaordinary circumstances that warrant his removal after just one term. I don´t think it´s worthwhile wallowing in grief about it. Wallowing is a form of self-indulegence and doesn´t achieve anything.

Right now I´m in the "mad as hell" stage, and I´m not going to get over it. On the Lightworker´s Inauguration day, I will display my American flag with black crepe draped around it. I am also putting an empty chair, a flag, and more black crepe around it.

I live in a small neighborhood and I have two neighbors I like, but I think they probably voted for Obama, as did several others in the neighborhood. We have two sets of doctors (husband and wife) - all 4 are black, and a white person who is a cancer specialist from New York City in our hood.

We all get along beautifully, but I need to do something to show my displeasure. Hell I´m 70 and about to turn 71. If I have a brain bleed, I´ve just read, doctors can´t treat the problem - just make me comfortable, according to the death panel regulation!

We need to look forward (I hate that word) to 2014. Hopefully we can generate enough disgust that by 9/12/2013 we can have another March on Washington of a million plus people as we did on 9/12/2009 and do it again in 2014. We must show our disgust every time Obama does something unConstitutional.

As I posted on another thread, I believe this happened for the best. Obama would not have been gracious in defeat. He would have exhorted his minions to burn this country to the ground. If Romney & Ryan had won, and I am not so sure they really lost, we would have paid for 100 years at least for the victory.

Romney did not lose. The election was stolen from him. Chrissy said ´thank god for Sandy´ and the night following the election, Hannity said ´the media in this country is dead.´ It wasn´t too hard to add them up and get what happened.

All the media conspired to call the election for O by the 10 o´clock news. Then it was back to regular programming. I might be more enraged if I didn´t think Rove and Romney sort of deserved this. They chose the voters they wanted and it wasn´t those who listen to Rush or belong to the Tea Party. This was their fault as much as anything.

Good Article. After reading many election fallout articles I believe the best overall explanation is Our Lord´s words.. " The children of darkness are wiser in their own generation than the children of light" Obama is a big success at being destructive and uses every weakness in the population very effectively to retain power. Others who would end the destruction are too trusting and not real leaders. Romney was a good man but not a perfect leader. Where is the leader that could clean up this mess? It was not Romney, is there anyone in his right mind who would try and inherit this mess? The next candidate should be one who will articulate the situation clearly fully expecting to be defeated by the opponents wishful thinking!

I agree with David to a degree, however it still doesn´t explain the fact of why half of the population voted for a candidate (BO) whose record and corrupt admin should have been easily defeated and thrown out of office no matter who the challenger was (massive voter fraud maybe). We have raised at least two generations of a functionally illiterate population/electorate. Critical thinking doesn´t exist and we have a society of entitlement seekers...that said we are now on the road to the USA of Greece! In the end we the people could have stopped this skid into deep socialism, however a little over half of us were suckered into another four years of movement in a backward direction and changes that in the long run will not pan out the way that this half thinks that it will...bottom line (dollars and cents reallity coming for those in the entitlement half) is sooner or later you have to pay the piper!

I hate to be so negative but I believe that this country will never be what it once was. Many of our young people have been poisoned by the media and brainwashed by the educational system. A fair number of our politicians are corrupt. They go to Washington to line their pockets and acquire pension and health benefits most of us can only dream of. Not to mention the crony capitalism that has made them wealthy far beyond their ability to earn it. The work ethic that fueled our economy is lost. Religion has been mocked and ridiculed. Our society is profane to the point that any behavior is tolerated. Can we come back from this? I believe we had our chance on November 6th. We have to face the fact that actions have consequences and we will not be exempt. I am not a maudlin person but I can recognize the truth when I see it. Economic experts have been telling us the economy will collapse if we continue down the road of big government and more spending. The future looks grim and I loathe the voters who sold their freedom so cheaply. Guess I am at the resigned but still angry phase.

Pre Ordained, the only way out now is total collapse of the federal system.

It will happen down the road, prepare your selves and your families for the future.

The young in our society are not prepared for survival, the death and destruction will be unprecedented, the longing for freedom will overshadow the desire for material things, and the circle will come full.

And that´s the kind of voter the Republican Party was stuck with. I don´t see any fix for it and will put the question aside until sometime next year. Shame on us.

Meet Sylvia Burwell, the
Titanic’s New Captain
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/14/2014 7:08:54 AM     Post Reply
The replacement of Kathleen Sebelius by Sylvia Mathews Burwell as the Secretary of Health and Human Services has been portrayed by the legacy “news” media as a new lease on life for Obamacare. The party line is that Sebelius was mortally wounded by GOP exploitation of a single uncharacteristic mistake—the botched rollout of Healthcare.gov—while Burwell is a brilliant Beltway veteran unsullied by controversy and possessing the very administrative skills needed to save Obama’s “signature domestic achievement.” (snip) This tale fails to conform to the facts, however.

Last Tuesday, our President swaggered into the Rose Garden to announce that 7.1 million people have signed up for health coverage through Obamacare’s exchanges and that all further argument about the future of his “signature domestic achievement” was pointless: “The debate over repealing this law is over. The Affordable Care Act is here to stay.” The problem with this claim is that no one with a basic grasp of arithmetic believes Obama’s enrollment figures, only about a quarter of the electorate supports his “reform” law, and it is still the target of multiple lawsuits challenging its constitutionality.

A new survey reveals that public esteem for Obamacare is continuing to plummet, hitting yet another historic low. (snip) The AP survey shows that a mere “26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act.” (snip) When the law was passed, 39 percent of the public supported it. But the President, along with his accomplices in Congress and the media, assured us that this percentage would rise once “reform” was implemented. In other words, Obama and his minions are no better at prognostication than they are at managing websites, insurance exchanges or anything else relating to health care.

One of the reasons Clarence Thomas gives for the studious silence he maintains during Supreme Court hearings is that his fellow justices have shown an increasing tendency to talk too much during oral arguments, thus preventing advocates from presenting their arguments coherently. Yesterday’s Supreme Court hearing in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius suggest that Thomas is right. Paul D. Clement, who appeared on behalf of the two companies challenging the Obamacare contraception mandate, was repeatedly interrupted and badgered by justices Sotomayor, Kagan, and Ginsburg.

The most febrile of George W. Bush haters liked to claim during his tenure that the former president "scared" them. There is far more reason to be frightened by President Barack Obama, because fecklessness and inconstancy trigger wars. The outstanding example of weakness inviting aggression was the conduct of the democracies toward Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Though it has been retroactively tainted as shameful cowardice, the policy of appeasement grew out of a "war weariness" that was far more understandable than our own. Britain and France suffered millions of dead and wounded in World War I and were desperate to

If Markos Moulitsas had his way there’d be no Affordable Care Act, no Dodd-Frank, no economic stimulus package. That’s the price when purity tests are applied to Democrats. In a remarkable post yesterday, Moulitsas, founder and publisher of the progressive community site DailyKos, celebrates the departure from the Senate of 10 moderate Democrats over the last decade, and makes clear his hope that Senators Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) and Mary Landrieu (D-La.) lose their tough reelection battles this year. He doesn’t name some other moderates in tight races, like Mark Begich (D-Alaska) and Kay Hagan (D-N.C.), but his logic suggests that he’d

Obamacare turns four this Sunday, and it´s never looked worse. For months, the news has not been kind. A broken promise, a broken website. Lost plans, lost doctors. Rising prices, rising frustration. Shrinking paychecks, a shrinking workforce. Unsecure data, insecure Democrats. The few Democrats willing to talk about Obamacare publicly struggle to defend the law on merits. So they´ve resorted to one last defense. They insist Republicans don´t have any ideas. Or as DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz phrased it on CNN´s Crossfire a couple months ago, "What is the Republican solution? … What is the solution to ensuring that everybody in

Public-sector unions took a big hit in Illinois Tuesday evening as a gubernatorial candidate they have poured millions of dollars into defeating seized victory in the state’s Republican primary. And now, in one of the few governor’s races Republicans see as a pickup opportunity this year, private-equity millionaire Bruce Rauner is poised to give Illinois governor Pat Quinn a run for his money and has a real shot at becoming the state’s first Republican governor in over a decade. Rauner set unions on edge during the primary campaign, criticizing their leaders and pledging to reform the state’s bankrupt pension system.

A Special Prosecutor for the IRS

The House Oversight Committee´s investigation of the IRS is at an inflection point. The president´s congressional supporters realize that the administration´s version of the agency´s targeting of conservative nonprofits seeking tax-exempt status—such as blaming local officials in the Cincinnati office or claiming that liberal groups were victimized along with conservative groups—is nonsense. Instead of debating the substance, they have resorted to procedural antics and misleading rhetoric. I have spent a considerable amount of time and energy on the investigation—which included 38 daylong interviews of IRS and Treasury employees ranging from line employees in Cincinnati to the IRS commissioner to the chief

Is anybody looking dumber than Bill de Blasio right about now? Tuesday’s Quinnipiac University poll gave him a 45 percent public-approval rating, down from 53 percent in January. This is consistent with earlier surveys, and it is astonishingly low for a new mayor. But de Blasio has been stepping in cow pies since he took his hand off the Bible on Inauguration Day. The consequences have ranged from minor embarrassments to the humiliating drubbing he’s now taking from Gov. Cuomo on education reform.

But before we succumb to 1994 and 2010 syndrome, I’d like to say that a lot of the things that I said in the February column remain true. The fundamental consideration is this: if

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.
