Remember to Unplug the
Refrigerator, Conservatives

American Thinker, by Robert Oscar Lopez

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 9/28/2013 9:40:11 AM

In one of his more disgraceful outbursts, John McCain recently blasted Ted Cruz (snip) Maybe I am misreading McCain´s response to Cruz, but I infer that the implication here is: we are all slaves by nature and must submit to whichever coterie has attained power over the ever-growing and self-enriching amoeba of Washington, D.C. I felt hurt. Then I felt angry. Then I wondered if there is some deeper metaphysics to what McCain said. Is he perhaps striking at some eternal wisdom about the human condition -- resistance is futile? Or is John McCain just very old?

Took a while to get to the point of the sermon, however, pretty good. Who cares what the establishemtn thinks when they are consistently wrong ( if not corrupt).

fta: The camp lesson is simple: when the other side is strong, don´t fight them on their terms. Fight on the terms that you know and control better than they do. Turn your weakness into a plus.

Conservatives will not gain anything by strategizing about how to succeed within standard congressional procedure. Pull the plug. Change the game. Take away the "power" that the other side feeds on -- in Susy´s case, light; in our case, respect for conventional opinion. Be unconventional.

Stick with this article, this guy nails it.

FTA:"Liberals say Republicans are "holding America hostage" by opposing the Affordable Care Act, but the fact that they control the House is due to the fact that the American people revolted against said law in 2010 and sent a Republican majority to the House. They wouldn´t be doing their job if they didn´t resist the implementation of this monstrosity."

But it gets better, read for yourself. Another champion for our cause, and I´m sure many of you were surprised that he´s doing it in eight inch heals!

"They wouldn´t be doing their job if they didn´t resist the implementation of this monstrosity"----well put; however, yesterday there were 27 senate republicans that didn´t do their jobs. Now we can only hope that the House will remain resolute and refuse to fund this monstrosity.

I read the whole piece. This guy can write, and he writes some powerful stuff. I am still not sure why he felt the need to drag me through his whole gay experience, but whatever...

His allusion to the Borg statement "resistance is futile" really sums up our situation today and how the McCains of the world think.

But it got me thinking about a non-Hollywood metaphor for Ted Cruz which I am surprised that I haven´t yet seen or thought of myself. Ted Cruz is the Chinese student who jumped in front of the tanks in Tiananmen Square. Clearly, that Chinese guy was no match for the power of those tanks and he would have to be a fool to stand up to them. But he jumped in front of them and risked it all to stop them, and a nation was awakened to what a brave man can do. And when the tanks wouldn´t turn, he jumped in front of them again. No, he couldn´t stop the tanks himself, but the image started things in motion that couldn´t be stopped.

Forgive me if I fail to grasp the whole gay riff in this piece. It was utterly unecessary to the point of the column and in fact makes the writer seem like he´s got a "gay thing" just like many black people have a "black thing" they just MUST inject into every conversation.

That said, this column´s point is a good one for Republicans: change the paradigm.

The camp lesson is simple: when the other side is strong, don´t fight them on their terms. Fight on the terms that you know and control better than they do. Turn your weakness into a plus.

...which is what Cruz & Co. are doing. They set an example. Whether it shoots some adrenalin into the GOP remains to be seen, but it´s something, which is better than the nothing we´ve been getting.

All things considered, this isn´t one of American Thinker´s best articles.

John McCain is an old man trying to stay relevant. The more he struggles, the worse he looks.He needs to go home and try to live with the rules he helped make. Oh, silly me, I forget he is like John Kerry; he married big money and doesn´t have to live like the rest of us.

John McCain has probably kept his wounds festering all the while blaming America for his imprisonment. He was broken, no matter what denials have come forth over the decades. In his sick mind, it is "pay back" time. Sorry I had to say it, but he once served America, then was released from the military and since that time has NOT served the People. It is what it is.
His commie captors infiltrated his thought process.

I used to give John McCain the benefit of the doubt, but after putting O´Bagy on his payroll he has now put his personal stamp of approval on lying, egg-sucking dog, liberal tactics which makes him no better. I no longer care what he´s done in his past now that I know where exactly he stands today.

FTA: Ted Cruz has drawn liberals into a rhetorical battlefield that they aren´t equipped to deal with, because they´ve made all of their surroundings safe by co-opting or intimidating anybody who has a counter-argument. Just by wandering off the acceptable scripts, Cruz changed the game.

Ted Cruz is equipped with knowledge and understanding of our Founding Documents, ´the faith of our fathers´, and the same kind of courage. He has shown that he will not be intimidated and he will not cower from speaking truth and reason to their lies, deceptions and unreasonableness.

God bless him and all who stand for the same.

One of the things that sets Americans apart is the drive for success.

George Washington had that drive. He had all kinds of obstacles before him: financial problems, weather, lack of support from the government, lack of food, clothing, men and yet the drive for success was unshakable.

Just because it is said it can´t be done doesn´t mean it can´t be done. I give Cruz
a world of credit as he stood before all men and made the case for the informed, insulted
Americans who have fought, are fighting, for this country and all the families who have sent their loved ones, their cherished ones into service all across this globe for the continuation of freedom.

#17 is so right. If George Washington had fought the British on their terms, he would have lost overwhelmingly. The republican leadership needs to show they can accomplish something now or there will be no reason to vote for them in 2014. McConnell has more in common with McClellan than Washington. McConnell would never consider unplugging the frige, he would assign a page to see if the frige light was EPA compliant.

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism.

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens penned a putrid op-ed in the Washington Post claiming he knew how to fix the Second Amendment to end controversy over its true meaning. The first 10 amendments to the Constitution placed limits on the powers of the new federal government.

I wish that I could say that Justice Stevens was engaged in an accurate although misleading statement. But it is not even that. It is both inaccurate and misleading – and not even in a very clever way.

One of the guidelines of liberal propaganda is that if you are going to lie, lie big. Global warming, Obamacare, Romney’s a heartless guy. It might be time to add to the list the famous Anthony Porter exoneration in Chicago in 1999. Not only is Porter likely guilty of the double murder he was initially charged with, an innocent man therefore sits in an east central Illinois prison serving a 37-year sentence. His probable framing was largely orchestrated by a since-discredited “journalism” professor and his students at Northwestern University, a cowed prosecutor’s office in Cook County, and a Chicago media that

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

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)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual
