East is east, and west is west, said Kipling. That goddamned colonialist apologist. How I love him.

And insofar as that sentiment obtains, never the twain shall convince the Other they are not disgusting vermin. Conflict is a primal component of man's nature. One might as well curse the thundershower, or chastise the wind, as to try to eliminate conflict from man's soul. One might even say conflict is healthy for our precious spirit, for at least it is honest, and reduces the necessity for the baser instincts of subterfuge and betrayal.

Now having laid that rather parsimonious throw rug of a qualification before you, I will aver that all conflict is not equal. Nor, obviously, are all propositions, arguments, axioms or moots.

The declaration of a position must have merit, it must emanate in good faith, and it must adhere to basic ground rules of propriety. A proposition must conform to traditional standards of debate, and eschew the notorious and cheap tricks of redefinition of words, reliance on shallow memes and tropes that have long since been proven false, and ad hominem attacks that preclude the possibility of honest and open debate.

In other words, the Left must completely dismantle its false structures of conflict if they choose to have rigorous debate, and join the universe of mature and earnest debaters of moral and political philosophy. Does this declaration appear crass and underhanded? Even, perish the thought, ad hominem?

I would grant the Left that argument if, and only if, they abjure the following style and type of attack passing itself as even-handed debate:

Easy examples: Bush lied about WMD's, and Richard Cheney was the evil puppetmaster of a confused and doltish white-knuckle drunk. These are bald-faced lies, repeated so often without benefit of proof as to make one puke at the fucking ridiculousness of the charges. WMD's were of course believed to be in Saddam's possession for the simple fact he had used them against his own people and the Iranians, for Christ's sake. Bush, in his tepid approach to war, gave the bastard a year to hide them, or move them. Surely those that were not found, and they were found, are buried in the Mesopotamian or Assyrian deserts. Why would they not be? And who could find them if they were? Of course there were WMD's. We fucking found them.

Dick Cheney? He became Vice President after a thirty year career in DC as a man universally acclaimed to be calm, composed, bipartisan, even-handed, kind, and jolly. He was the poster boy of decorum. And yet he was morphed overnight into a fucking vampire, a Machiavellian manipulator interested only in creating financial opportunities for his bloodthirsty friends at Halliburton. A spendthrift of "blood and treasure" to enrich himself and his fat cat buddies.

This was a goddamn libel of monstrous proportions, and one the Left knew to be so, and yet they shamelessly fostered and promulgated it. Dick Cheney is a fucking stand up guy. Eight years on I have never seen a shred of evidence to prove the calumny showered upon this decent man. If Cheney were the bastard the Left made him out to be he surely would have had his dirty mercenaries carve the fucking hearts out of the cocksuckers who slandered him so. I would have. Hell, I would have eaten those hearts. But I'm not a stand up guy like Dick Cheney.

And about that "blood and treasure" line. A very convenient and psychologically charged term. I would ask the Left at what point they ever cared about the blood of an American soldier or Marine? They promulgated enormous lies through the bastard auspices of The New Republic, and the gutter mouth of John Murtha, but I don't recall any left of center politician visiting Walter Reed Hospital to render kindness to an injured veteran. As for treasure? Since when is taxpayer money considered treasure to a Leftist? It is nothing more than the coin of the realm for socialist policies to them. If taxpayer money is such a fucking treasure to the Left why then do they waste it so heedlessly on their pet projects and social engineering circle jerks, and in such mind boggling quantities? Hell, Barack Obama's Treasury Department just printed over a trillion dollars of "treasure" like fucking green confetti for Saint Patrick's Day, which will serve no purpose other than to buy loyalty and largesse on the cheap while the inflationary backlash of such an infantile and stupid gesture will go unremarked by the chiggering classes in the media. Treasure, indeed.

Let us discuss queer-bashing, a hobby of the Left one could set one's watch by: although heavily populated and suported by the gay establishment, the Left has no compunction about outing or vilifying homosexuals such as Mary Cheney or Larry Craig or Jeff Gannon if it suits the agenda. Hypocrisy knows no bounds when the agenda must be forwarded. Of all the Left's transgressions this is possibly the most disgusting, as it invariably causes, or attempts to cause, great personal harm to not only the individual but their family and close friends. It is an evil tactic, and an abomination. I personally have never read a Leftist deplore this tactic, even as the Left whistled past the graveyard as a totally politically corrupt piece of human garbage such as Barney Frank was busted for having a live-in lover and employee run a gay prostitution ring out of his abode. That disgusting and illegal activity is apparently fine, but that fucking Larry Craig? Tapped a guy's shoes in the toilet. Let us not only crucify him, but humiliate him and his family.

There are so many reasons to abhor the Left for their deceit, treachery, and calumny. I merely point to the tip of the iceberg here. Just a small, small smattering of the corrupt nature of the Infantile Class. But never let it be said I did not call that spade a spade. Are those of the Left who know me, or read me, repulsed? I am sure they are. I do not give a fucking fig about that. More importantly to me, am I repulsed by them? I don't presume you must read between these lines to assume that fact. I am absolutely repulsed by the Left, for they do not engage in adult conversation. They rely upon prevarication, code words, hate, personal attacks, and vitriol to disguise their true reason for the inability to debate on the merits: simply put, they hate individualism, hate those who do not think as they do, and wish to use the plenipotentiary power of the state to force those who disagree with them to toe the fucking line, and get on board with their grandiose schemes to remake the world not as it is, but how in their tiny and unsophisticated minds they wish it to be. And when they lose the debate, because they have no rational facts to sustain them, they will simply play the race card, or fagbash one of your own, or pass a goddamn ex post facto law and take away your money unconstitutionally because they managed to arm a dozen convenient spastics with pitchforks. For they do not believe in a government of laws. They believe in a government of emotions. Which is a dangerous fucking thing, when you have the emotions of a thirteen year old girl. It's one thing to show up for a gun fight with a knife. It's quite another thing to show up for a debate with nothing more than a Che tee, Mao's Little Red Book, and an enema bag with what passes for your brain inside it.

The brainwashed generation that flattered themselves into thinking they were the vanguard of the future in 1967 San Francisco now hold all of the keys to the kingdom, and as power corrupts, so it is no fucking daisy they're sticking in your barrel. The only thing we have to fear is the fucking fearmongers themselves. And their daisies.

As for Repulsion: that rotting hare in the kitchen in Polanski's film rather succinctly sums up my opinion of the State of the Leftists' Union.

There will be blood.

I never understood the Dick Cheney thing either. I always thought he was pretty fucking cool.

Now, here is an argument that's gone all ad hominem:
"Your daddy's a homo and so is your mominem."
To get Mardi Gras beads you must show us your tits,
And have a big bowl of Ad Hominem Grits.

Nice job, V-man; and yes, there WILL be blood before this is over...

A while back I asked myself out loud on my blog if we had reached the tipping point yet. This screed is exactly what I had in mind.

To me, the tipping point was that moment when the liars felt the rush of The Lie Believed. The way a flim-flam man feels when the mark falls into the con. It has nothing to do with the mark, no feeling or emotion for the mark or his family, it's just the sweet, sweet moment when the huckster realizes he can get away with it, that his set-up was perfect, his co-horts were on pointe, and the sherrif was already bought and paid to look the other way.

They're positively giddy with the heady scent of "treasure" alright, but their collective ego is simply agog at its own audacity.

This is how they turned the Northeast into a solidly blue region, by socially ostracizing those who would disagree with them, and shouting down at any attempt at a discussion. I live in that world. You described it to a tee.

Sort've like the rightfucksticks plan of action these past 41 years. All in all. Mr. Crawford and friends -- you do spittle smart, but your stolen rattle rage and bazooka Joe habit of skirting responsibility thimble sizes the legitimacy of your complaint every time. Sorry. There is rage a'buildin in this country, from all over and all bents. Your particular bent -- for all of its neglected truths and long distorted virtues -- I'm feeling, is in a death throe not dissimilar to James Arness getting toasted by Howard Hawks and friends. Sorry to pile shit upon compost, but the public face of your philosophy should be horse kicked into surgery.

Amen about how Dick Cheney is a stand up guy. When he told that diseased cunt Pat Leahey to go fuck himself I thought it showed great restraint. After Leahey had accused him of all sorts of malfeasance, a punch in the nose would have been more appropriate.

"Bush lied about WMDs"

Even five-year-olds know that you don't tell big whopping lies that you will inevitably be caught at.

And even the "imbecile" Bush knows that first-term presidents shouldn't make colossal mistakes if they want to be re-elected.

If BushCo was venal enough to lie about the WMDs to get us to go to war for oil or Halliburton or whatever they imagined, then he was venal enough to ensure that we FOUND WMDs, even if he had to plant them there himself.

Instead, he sat there with egg on his face for the rest of his term and during re-election. He was saved from losing only because John Francoise Kerry was such an obvious loser.

I guess it would have been better to wait to get hit again by weapons with Made In Iraq stamped on them.

Posted by: dicentra at March 23, 2009 2:23 PM

Well said. The left has just pounded the WMD fairy tale for so long and it's simply not true. In addition, Congress voted with the president for war. The killer nutcase Saddam was given warning after warning -- and that was with resolutions backed by the (beloved) UN. So the roman candles and poison cherry bombs had a full year for stashing anywhere. The terrain is pockmarked with holes, trenches and caves, easy to hide or dismantle stuff.

And yes, the need to bully anyone who questioned the 'No WMD' propaganda was similar to ridiculing a senile old uncle who just wasn't hip enough to get it. Funny, the same tactics were tried again after TOTUS was elected. Blogs couldn't tolerate mention of the word socialism. Leftocrats tried to bleat it out and scream that it was silly and reactive, typical neocon. Funny, no one questions it now.

I'm glad the rage is building. It's great the tea parties are growing, and there's a couple petitions which are gathering names and making the rounds. To answer Steve Croft's question: Hell yes, he's punch-drunk. He's also arrogant, unaware, narcissistic and shackled by the chains of Soros.

Well V-Man, guess you did it. You got popular enough for some pusillanimous twat over at Websense to justify blocking your site as a "social networking" site, which in their context sounds roughly equivalent to "opium den."

So, no more Velociworld to start my morning.

Ruled by emotion rather than law. All too true and aggravated by the fact, I do believe, that all liberals, male, female,and ???, are in a constant state of PMS. The only anomaly being that only male liberals ovulate...

Posted by: Tbird at March 23, 2009 5:49 PM

That's a damned shame, apotheosis. The only social networking I do on this site is occasionally emailing pictures of Girth Vader to commenters. Had a few fellows email back asking for a closer look, too.

Posted by: Velociman at March 23, 2009 5:49 PM

You're in good company. They tagged David Thompson, S. Weasel, and Rachel Lucas, and BlackFive with the same block all on the same morning.

Weird, though, links to kos seem to be open for business. A man might almost be forgiven for thinking there was some sorta agenda.

Posted by: apotheosis at March 23, 2009 6:20 PM

There is almost certainly an agenda with these web filtering services that businesses use. And no, it does not end at filtering out "porn". I can't get to the comments here or at Ace of Spades from work, and cannot reach SondraK's site at all.

Some pimple-faced pudwhacker with a Che t-shirt is paid to look for "inappropriate" comment, no doubt, and add it to the blocked sites list.

Dick Cheney kicks ass. I only wish he had been the puppet master the left accused him of. We wouldn't be in this shit if he had had the handle bars...

Velociman... when are you going to write a book... I absolutely dig your prose... groovy man...

Posted by: BHenry at March 24, 2009 2:51 AM

Excellent post dude-I wish to the heavens above Dick Cheney would have been president. He not only had the thick skin of GW but he is a true blue conservative and would sent even more shivers up the mullah's asses then Bush did. He would have been a much more outspoken president then Bush, who was pretty much defenseless of his policies the whole 8 years and has a rapier wit, Lord it would have been heaven to see him at press conferences-oh well

Obama cannot make himself shut up, his arrogance is unnerving ordinary people, and the roaches are running free in the light. This is progress.

Posted by: james wilson at March 24, 2009 11:49 PM

From Chris Mathews to Dan "courage" Rather to Bill Maher to Jon Stewart to the gals at the View ... the same old shit repeated endlessly, as in a loop. No wonder the young people begin to believe it.
I lived through the Regan years and don't remember a single kind thing ever being said or written about him except maybe by George Will. The television warlords painted him as leading us to the end of the world. I lived through the Nixon presidency, too, and never thought I would again see the rancid reporting, the actual bile that spilled forth from "newspapers" such as the Times and the Post.
But the years 2001 to January 2009 were like nothing I ever witnessed. I still find it impossible to believe that Bush was re-elected. I mean, he lied, he killed babies, he was a Christian - the list is endless. Remember how Rather was caught assisting in the fabrication of the lie he attempted to perpetrate upon Bush? The left wing media was a little embarrassed, but that was all, for him getting caught. Had anyone attempted that on Obama he would have been investigated by the Ohio Secretary of State ...
