Further proof that buyers of “coexist” bumper stickers have no sense of irony…

We feel the same way about you. Except the whole ‘love’ part.

Kinda’ like the irony involved in B.O. being thrown a million dollar “pizza party” by the owners of LITTLE CAESAR’S:)

    “When asked what she planned to serve, she said: ‘Pizza! But, we’ll be serving it on sterling silver plates!’”

    How much more tone-deaf can these people be?!?!

    This topic (Caesar’s Pizza) merits it’s own post, but in lieu of that, I’ll comment here that Obama has been very good for the pizza business, what with his “$40 Family Pizza Night Social Security Payroll Tax Holiday”.

    I’ll have to think about the implications of mashing together $40,000 per plate fundraisers, sterling silver, healthy benefits of eating pizza, Obama, and Detroit.

Who was it again that once wrote about the ability to hold two completely antithetical positions simultaneously???

Yeah. That.

Well… I guess that I’ll add Little Caesar’s to my boycott list. Hmmmm, maybe “occupy Little Caesar’s?”

Or better yet, just vote the Illinois bums out in November!

These people are truly delusional…

“Cockeysville, MD”
Ewwwwwwwww. Umm, maybe-kinda-sorta think of a name change folks.

Uhh, try Charmin® or something..

    Cockeysville is 10 or so miles north of Towson. It is mostly wealthier White Republicans, many of whom are RINO’s. There is some section 8 housing, but they are kind of fenced in and only allowed out to work for the wealthy White Republican RINO’s.

Should they actually get the fortitude to put action to their words, and “see” somebody else, I hope it is a long term relationship. When they go, in the Midwest we say “Don’t let the door hit you where the good Lord split you.”

Or, as Deputy Dawg used to say, “Don’t go away mad, just go away.”

Unfortunately these dumbnuts don’t want to move. They want to radically transform the United States of America into the workers paradise they think some other country is.

“seeing other people” … so what is that really referring to?

I guess it is Defense Secretary Panetta’s car. He suggested to Congress that the President would get permission from the UN on where to deploy our armed forces, then inform congress. Those other UN people?

Or Obama confides in Russia that he’ll be more flexible after the silly Americans reelect him. Those other people?

Obama has been going around the world bowing and apologizing for his country, trying to make other countries understand his America will accept a more subservient role. Obama can date whoever he wants, but as our president, most citizens don’t appreciate him screwing US and holding hands with Russia, whispering sweet nothings in their ear in front of the whole world.

But maybe I’m reading too much into a bumper sticker. 🙂

The US military is the only substantial group of US citizens that has ever lived as a family in a foreign country. The insulation of our wealthier families from that foreign service has resulted in a provincialism of those who think they are our elite that is astounding. They are so very certain that the whole rest of the world shares their values and their viewpoint. They don’t even understand that the rest of the country doesn’t agree with them, for legitimate reasons that should be addressed, and that the rest of the world is really alien.

I just had a visit from a thoroughly brilliant 17-year-old friend of my son, and I’ve heard all about how the health insurance systems of Canada and Great Britan are what the drafters of the health “care” legislation are deliberately emulating, and that the intrusion of the government in the market will have little to no effect.

This of course is purely repetition from his parents, and not to be held against him. I’m starting to teach him a little basic economics. He does understand that experimental results can trump happy theory, so I am confident that he will grow up well.

    Valerie, over the last twenty or so years, a significant minority of US citizens have lived for a while in foreign countries or as students. Many college students have spent semesters (or years) abroad. In addition, many companies used to send US citizens and their families abroad on ex pat assignments.

    My guess is that more college kids and US ex pats have lived abroad than have members of the US armed services

When it comes to expecting some of these Densa (Mensa’s inverse cousin) members to experience some cognitive dissonance over their positions, we must first recognize one considerable obstacle:

It presumes an initial state of cognition with which the present reality must be in dissonance.

Alas, the initial state in the subjects under consideration is too often lacking, rendering impossible any state of internal dissonance on their part.

Continued dissonance with the external “real world” is, however, an ongoing phenomenon of which they are usually totally unaware.

It started innocently as dreams of instant gratification, then we had to cope with STDs, including AIDS, and an economy distorted beyond recognition.

Fine, let them leave. Just make sure they take their psychotropic drugs with them.

I keep trying to get the progressives I know to ‘see’ how women (and minorities) are treated in Muslim countries, but they’re not interested. I keep trying the get them to ‘see’ how gays are treated in the Middle East anywhere but Israel. But they’re not interested. Nor are they too interested in how the poor in the US live in comparison to the poor in, say, Sub-Saharan Africa or much of SE Asia.

They only see what they want to see, and it usually isn’t ‘other countries’
