Between the devil and the deep blue sea

My Saturday postings started just after the last election when Erica whined that Trump had orange hair. She and millions like her had no concrete objection to Trump, just that he was not Hilliary. Geeze what shit show the last four years have been. Libtards whining and Trump being a jerk who always has to be right. If it were only possible for him to shut up, he would have handily been reelected. I seriously doubt he will win. So that should give all the Erica’s a tingle.

FYI, my political postings garner more eyeballs than any spanking post. I am sure the posts have run off some spankos and made others unwilling to comment for fear of being associated with my views.

Today’s Edition

If Democrats win up and down the ballot, progressives will control the commanding heights of nearly every American elite institution: Congress, the administrative state, Hollywood and the arts, the universities, nonprofits, Silicon Valley and nearly all of the media.
 
Why are American elites so enamored of authoritarian command and control? Why do they want to control my healthcare, how much water is used to flush a toilet? Aren’t there things that are more important?
 

The hard left has NO tolerance for anyone who does not agree with their ideas and desires, none whatsoever. They don’t just want to win, they want no -absolutely NO- opposing voices. Anywhere. Ever. They are the angriest, bigoted, intolerant petulant children imaginable. That’s you Erica and AOC, et al.

There is a new “hyper-intolerance” on the part of the upper classes, academics, and the media.
 

Trump’s Legacy expanding the economy, stopping most illegal immigration, empowering minorities economically in a historic fashion, making superb judicial appointments, recalibrating U.S. foreign policy on Iran and the Middle East, confronting China, restoring the industrial heartland, pardoning non-violent prisoners with cruelly long sentences, and ending optional overseas interventions while increasing the military budget. 

Biden’s Policies – The former Vice President is running as a reassuring moderate, a man of good character who can reunite the country and crush Covid-19 after the disruptive Trump Presidency. Yet he also is running on the most left-wing policy program in decades.

Voters have little idea about these policies because Mr. Biden mentions them only in the vaguest, general terms. The press barely reports them. Americans may think they’re voting for Joe’s persona, but they will get the platform of Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.

Mr. Biden has conformed himself and his agenda to the priorities of the left. He has ditched his long opposition to taxpayer funding of abortion. He supports tax rates on income and capital higher than any since the 1970s. His pro-union agenda harks back to the 1930s’ Wagner Act. His version of the Green New Deal would spend $2 trillion in four years and aims to eliminate fossil fuels with mandates and regulation.

These are not exaggerations. The details are on his website and in the Biden-Sanders unity agenda Mr. Biden endorsed after he won the nomination. Primary winners usually move to the center. Mr. Biden moved left to keep the Bernie brigades mobilized. Anyone who thinks Mr. Biden will be able to forget all this if elected doesn’t understand the fund-raising and media power of the Democratic left.

A fair consideration for voters is how long Mr. Biden will be able to handle the burdens of the Presidency. A capable staff and a forgiving press corps will cover for him as long as they can. Americans who vote for Mr. Biden may be voting for Ms. Harris as his successor sooner than they imagine.

Trump fatigue may well elect the man they think is Mr. Trump’s opposite in the hope of restoring more decorum and calm to American politics. They should know they may be voting for disruption of a different kind from the political left.

If Mr. Trump does lose, and takes a Republican Senate down with him, the cause will not be weak Republicans, incompetent campaign staff, or even the relentless partisanship of the press. Joe Biden and the Democrats couldn’t make Mr. Trump the third incumbent in a century to be fired after a single term. Only Donald Trump could do that.

I will leave with this thought about diversity vs unity by Victor Davis Hanson.
The Roman Empire worked as long as Iberians, Greeks, Jews, Gauls, and myriad other African, Asian, and European communities spoke Latin, cherished habeas corpus, and saw being Roman as preferable to identifying with their own particular tribe. By the fifth century, diversity had won out but would soon prove a fatal liability.
 
Rome disintegrated when it became unable to assimilate new influxes of northern European tribes. Newcomers had no intention of giving up their Gothic, Hunnish, or Vandal identities.
 
The propaganda of history’s multicultural empires — the Ottoman, the Russian, the Austro-Hungarian, the British, and the Soviet — was never the strength of their diversity. To avoid chaos, their governments bragged about the religious, ideological, or royal advantages of unity, not diversity.

  1. It was just after the last election I discovered this blog after reading one of your postings on another spanking blog , a rely to that same Erica. You stood out as the lone conservative in a sea of Hillary crazed liberal morons. It was then I sought out who OBB was and found myself here. I had my run ins with those like minded liberals and found refuge here with someone who had similar opinions as myself.
    It’s no surprise your political posts draw numbers. I’m sure over the past four years many have read and agreed but have stayed incognito for reasons not wanting to expose themselves to the liberal left. They don’t want themselves subjected to outraged if they visit the other liberal blogs.
    I’m also certain that many of your invisible visitors are those very same liberals you argued with. They come to fuel themselves with more hate so they can regurgitate it on their own blogs. I’ve watched over the past four years your link to OBB disappear from those blogs as well.
    Well Bogey, regardless of this Tuesday’s outcome which I must say I do disagree with you , I’ll be here for the long run.
    I hope your political posts continue as well as the spanking ones.

    1. At the beginning of OBB, we had a blog roll. I spent a lot of time maintaining it as the bloggers exited pretty fast. I decided I might be jinxing them, so I removed the blog roll. I stayed in contact with several of them, but after a few years they all disappeared.

      Yeah, folks have noticed and told me I have been dropped from some blog rolls.usch as Bonnie’s and Hermoine’s. That was I think them showing me that I could not call Hermoine out for publishing stories about adults spanking girls for and to pleasure without consequences. Great feminists they are.
