It's Official - Democrats are Insane Posted by John Caile on Friday, March 27, 2009 12:16:46 PM If there was any doubt that the Obama-Pelosi-Reid Democratic party has gone off the deep end, it was removed when they announced that the government would now tell you what color your car can be. California legislators are actually considering making black cars illegal. You see, black cars absorb sunlight and get hotter than white cars, and heavens, you might actually dare to run your air conditioner more often, and then, oh-my-gosh, you'll burn more gasoline, and that will mean more carbon dioxide, resulting in more "global warming" and, and, and... I'm sorry, but at some point, even the most died-in-the-wool Democrat voters have to face the uncomfortable reality that their party has been hijacked by people who, quite frankly, have lost their minds. In less than fifty years, the once proud "party of the working man" has become the party of the welfare state - the only "workers" that today's Democrats seem to care about are GOVERNMENT employees. With millions of private sector employees being laid off, note how few, if any, of those armies of government "social workers" are losing THEIR jobs. The party of the down to earth Harry Truman (who actually took the bus to the White House) has become the party of an empty suit elitist snob, Barak Obama. The party of civil liberties has become the party of the fascist nanny state - from "speech codes" on university campuses to smoking bans in private businesses (and soon to come: smoking bans in your car, and eventually, your own home). My great grandfather was a big time Democrat power broker at the beginning of the 20th century. John F. McGuire smoked cigars, drank Irish whiskey, ate bloody rare steaks, and owned a cabinet full of guns (including his favorite, one of the first Colt Government Model 1911 pistols). If he were to arise from his grave, he would be appalled at what he saw. He would also likely NOT be welcome in the Democrat Party. And think about this - today, the two biggest campaign contributors to the Democrat Party are trial lawyers and government employee unions, followed closely by...Wall Street financial interests. Yes, Virginia, whether you are talking about Fannie May and Freddie Mac or the folks at the big brokerage firms, it is Democrats, not Republicans, who receive the biggest party donations from "those rich guys." Certainly, today's Republicans have drifted toward the mushy middle, but today's Democrats have fallen off the far left side of the universe - they have become unabashed Socialists. A friend of mine summed it up this way: "Today's Republicans have become 1950's Democrats, and today's Democrats have become 1950's Communists." It was bad enough when liberal Democrats mandated the monstrously expensive and ineffective ethanol scam, forcing taxpayers to subsidize a fuel that lowers their gas mileage and decreases the life of their engines. It was worse when the same liberal fascists announced that we would all have "Big Brother" devices in our cars to tax us on every mile we drive. But when these modern day Stalinists actually consider legislating what color of car you can drive, is should be a wake-up call to even the most loyal Democrats that their party is being run by the clinically insane.
