The Dawn Of Unlikability


I can’t think of a more patriotic thing to do in America than to arrange one’s digits in a vulgar fashion to tell elected officials to stick-it when justified. Before you clutch your pearls in deep distaste or dial the NSA, realize that in the past YOU have engaged in the same UNLIKABLE act…that is unless you happen to have supported George W.Bush.

I’ll keep turning green in the face saying it; The current primary cycle has to be the most important in generations. Not ONLY because we have what has to be the  most destructive GOP led senate in history but because on the Left we have “marginal “,contestable, leadership.  Undoubtedly; our POTUS has been stymied in anything he has attempted to do by the GOP senate ( This post won’t be a declaration of why I oppose him) and he has handed it with great humor, intelligence and dignity –his greatest assets have been his LIKABILITY and his vision of hope.

I find incredibly confounding that today the overwhelming majority of HIS supporters are turning their backs on LIKABILITY, something that in itself is meaningless, and the transformative message of hope,  in mindless support of one of the most UNLIKABLE and anti-hope Democrat candidates. Curious that the same phenomenon is mirrored on the Right of the political spectrum.

Not only are the two party front runners UNLIKABLE but increasingly their base has  joined them in the political sewers. For the right this has never been much of a problem, rampant racism, misogyny, hate mongering are just the membership prerequisites. Now the left, things  get interesting. The party of lofty ideals has taken a lot of the right’s tone—they  resort to the very tactics, voter fraud, Astroturfing, paid trolls–they object from the right.  One of the most villainous  is the  manipulation of others that engage in dissent. They claim that “WE” are handing  the nation to right-wingers if we don’t capitulate to the corrupt left. Imagine that! the party of so called  hopeful progressives has become the party of “Incrementalist” neocons.

Is it any wonder that so many of “US” are becoming unlikable and telling them to stick-it?

* “WE, “US” denotes People like me that are no longer supporters of the current  Democratic party–not necessarily those that comment on this website.

    Sweeeeeet!

    I think that we, in part, created the Hillary Clinton that we have today.

    The BIG mistake was reacting so quick at the Republican’s crafted lies about the Benghazi attacks. In the end Clinton holds a lot of responsibility, she even did a half-ass mea culpa taking responsibility but ultimately shifting the blame on intelligence operatives.

    We went out of our way to support her without thinking for a second she could be responsible, even if partly, we took to the blogosphere to wage war on anyone who said otherwise—the result was that she was able to walk away unscathed from essentially doing a shitty job as Secretary of State.

    This all took a circus atmosphere during the hearings and now WE are paying the price. I was offended by her maniacal laughter when responding to what was nothing more than a witch hunt, no pun intender, by the Republicans. Regardless of their stupidity American lives, that she was responsible for, were lost.

    Now her obscene cackle just announces that she is untouchable—so do you think Obama will let her be indicted?

    • Darth says:

      Meh. I always thought Benghazi was overblown. The thing is that Republicans will ALWAYS overreact, it’s who they are. By attacking Democrats in such a way they unite them. It becomes so partisan because they behave with such depravity, and the issue itself becomes lost in the politics. Doing government business on a personal email server was much more of an issue IMO.

      • Jack says:

        Well it was a witch hunt but it does not absolves her completely, she said as much—until she shifted the blame, classic Clinton maneuvering. But what gets me is not the outcome but the DEMOCRAT/LIB supporter reaction.

        I don’t give fig, yes I said fig next it will be poppycock, about the Republican they did what they always do make things worse. Now her supporters, will carry on the same, as you say, ‘ Partisan’ …’Depraved’ behavior into her presidency, if one thinks the insane worship around Obama is bad wait until she does something despicable, say putting boots on the ground somewhere. They’ll probably say sure it’s justified—she should bomb Syria or Iran….yes I’m in one of those moods.

        • Darth says:

          “what gets me is not the outcome but the DEMOCRAT/LIB supporter reaction”

          By attacking an enemy, one unites that enemy. This is classic. Republicans, for all their inanity, seem to understand this on a primal level. It’s all about the base. They want a polarized electorate. It’s the way they win. That being said, the outcome is as you say, that Democrats will overlook a great deal–to their detriment. It seems the Hillary camp wants a polarized electorate too. Perhaps they think that’s the way she can win.

          • Jack says:

            I speak only for me now not what I have seen around the Great Al Gore’s internet… I was not on board with Hillary before she announced her candidacy, after the primaries I’m not going to support her even if Bernie calls for his supporters to do so.

            I think a lot of die hard Bernie supporters eventually will find the remote chance of a Trump presidency too much to handle, and this is what Hellary and her advisors maybe counting on. To me this election is not about Bernie or Hellary it’s about bringing back, if there ever was such a thing, the party, too late I won’t be part of it, progressive principles that rolls the importance of the people back to the time when corporations were not sentient beings.

      When fast and furious goes wrong, blowback, horrible spin in the midst of an presidential election. Clinton fairly deserves blame, but so too does the President, unless the “buck” stopped with the Sec. of State.

      Perhaps the foreign policy of the President itself was flawed?

      • MSolomon2 says:

        can’t say they’ve been anything wondrous, hard-pressed to find anything memorable in any good way really…

      • Jack says:

        I don’t go along with the cascade of blame. If you have a job, let’s say as a bouncer, fitting for a bridgehead or the Pope, and you ignore something someone dies will taking it to the head guy work? No first things first am I wrong? . I’m not saying she was entirely responsible but she was probably more interested in doing back room deals to mount her Presidential Campaign than doing her job.

        • nebdem says:

          I think that both Democrats and Republicans are equally responsible for what happened at Benghazi, and by turning it into a witch hunt, it allowed them to skirt the real question that should have been asked: What were we doing in Benghazi? It allowed the question(s) to become drowned out over the theater that was presented, the witch hunt.

          I don’t know if she was more interested in her eventual Presidential Campaign. Perrhpas she was and is so craven.

          • Jack says:

            It takes some work but one can present such a claim, only to get the conversation going, by looking at other things she was saying and doing before making the announcement that she was running again. I actually I going to go back to her first run.

            Before she announced she was running in 08, she went out of her way to condemn ,what was already a moot point, the impeding housing bubble burst—she did this in 07, we knew this about 2005. So when i say that she was more interested in her campaign given who she is I believe it.

      • Darth says:

        Plenty of blame to go around, but not for F&F IMO. I have larger axes to grind. Hey Nebs.

    Obama’s troop increase in Syria is part of a troubling trend
    http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/apr/25/barack-obama-syria-us-troop-increase-syria-broken-promise
    not a trend I’m liking, but come the Queen’s coronation I’ll be expecting more still…

    The last words of Steve Jobs –
    I have come to the pinnacle of success in business.
    In the eyes of others, my life has been the symbol of success.
    However, apart from work, I have little joy. Finally, my wealth is simply a fact to which I am accustomed.
    At this time, lying on the hospital bed and remembering all my life, I realize that all the accolades and riches of which I was once so proud, have become insignificant with my imminent death.
    In the dark, when I look at green lights, of the equipment for artificial respiration and feel the buzz of their mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of my approaching death looming over me.
    Only now do I understand that once you accumulate enough money for the rest of your life, you have to pursue objectives that are not related to wealth.
    It should be something more important:
    For example, stories of love, art, dreams of my childhood.
    No, stop pursuing wealth, it can only make a person into a twisted being, just like me.
    God has made us one way, we can feel the love in the heart of each of us, and not illusions built by fame or money, like I made in my life, I cannot take them with me.
    I can only take with me the memories that were strengthened by love.
    This is the true wealth that will follow you; will accompany you, he will give strength and light to go ahead.
    Love can travel thousands of miles and so life has no limits. Move to where you want to go. Strive to reach the goals you want to achieve. Everything is in your heart and in your hands.
    What is the world’s most expensive bed? The hospital bed.
    You, if you have money, you can hire someone to drive your car, but you cannot hire someone to take your illness that is killing you.
    Material things lost can be found. But one thing you can never find when you lose: life.
    Whatever stage of life where we are right now, at the end we will have to face the day when the curtain falls.
    Please treasure your family love, love for your spouse, love for your friends…
    Treat everyone well and stay friendly with your neighbours.

        I would hope that this sort of realization would come to HELLary and her Corporate owners but it won’t they lack SJ intelligence—too bad he got this only at the end of his life.

        • fancykat says:

          Hillary has not had to face what SJ did. Not yet. Yes it is to bad Jack. It’s a rude awakening to learn what he did when time runs out.

    • Darth says:

      The words of man whom has realized that all he had attained is illusory. Yet, for the rest of us, very real. He changed the world.

    • MSolomon2 says:

      do we know if this is true, that he really recorded this? I hope it’s so and gets the wide circulation it needs to get! This is the eternal truth, all through recent decades, during the 80’s we heard variations on this from the neo-feudals, somehow it just hasn’t sunk in yet… I know the psychology of it, it’s what Becker called “immortality projects”, their wealth is their attempt at creating something that they, on some level “believe” will last out “forever”, make something of theirs, their corporate-name/fame, will live on! A beacon, a monument to the ages! Of course it’s all lies, all ashes on the tongue, tears in falling rain…
