Tangling with progressives ~ By Burt Prelutsky

Well, at least I know I wasn't alone in the feeling that I had about James Cameron's "Avatar." It seems that Burt picked up on the environment whacko stuff in that movie just as I did. Oh, but Burt doesn't just pick on the crazy environmental activists; he goes after the Progressives for many of the things they are doing to us, such as ObamaCare.
Speaking of health care, who exactly are those 32 million uninsured people who will die in the streets unless Obamacare is implemented? So far as I can figure, there are two groups who make up the 32 million. The first group consists of young people who don't wish to blow their money on something as unsexy as health insurance when they could be spending it on booze and recreational drugs, and the second group is made up of illegal aliens. So it is for their sake Obama wants to destroy the world's finest health-care system and gobble up one-sixth of the nation's economy. Welcome to his world.

It seems that those on the political left change their labels nearly as often as ACORN changes its name. One day, they're calling themselves communists and socialists, then it's Democrats and next it's liberals. They're like professional grifters who move from one town to another just before the local cops close them down and toss them in the clink. They change their names and their con games, but one thing they don't change is their spots.

I, personally, find it odd that some of these leftists, such as Hillary Clinton, have taken to calling themselves progressives. The reason I find it so peculiar is because back in 1948, Henry Wallace ran for president as the standard bearer for the Progressive Party, which everyone knew was what the Communist Party was calling itself at the time. In fact, it was only thanks to dumb luck that Comrade Wallace wasn't running as the incumbent. After all, he had been FDR's vice president during Roosevelt's third term. Fortunately, FDR was persuaded to dump Wallace and run with Truman in 1944. Otherwise, it's safe to assume that the Soviet Union wouldn't have had to rely on the likes of Julius Rosenberg, Morton Sobell and Alan May to provide them with the plans for the A-bomb.

But, by whatever name the leftist loons call themselves, a conservative could drive himself batty trying to figure out what passes for their thought process. For instance, James Cameron spent hundreds of millions of dollars to produce "Avatar," a movie that required every last bit of advanced cinematic technology. The end result was a three-hour movie condemning modern technology.

At least, unlike Cameron, most of his fellow environs are consistent. They're nuts, but they're consistent. Alexander the Great allegedly wept because he had no new worlds to conquer; the environs would weep if they had no new worlds to destroy.
