Yeah, I've Been Getting That Impression

While media outlets endlessly poll and probe the American people to understand why they feel so disenchanted with their government, Professor Benjamin Ginsberg and Senior Lecturer Jennifer Bachner instead looked at America's political ruling class for answers. The federal bureaucrats, think tank leaders, and congressional staff members they surveyed, Ginsberg said in an interview with VICE News, "have no idea what Americans think and they don't care. They think Americans are stupid and should do what they are told."
I have an amusing counter-proposal.

Saw this over at Ace's:

First they came for the Communists, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Social Democrats, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Social Democrat. And then they realized that all their problems had pretty much been solved, so they stopped coming for people.

Yup. First, they came for the Tea Parties ... and now, according to Hillary Clinton, we are up to a quarter of the voters in this country.

And, it is the written policy of the DNC to encourage violence against those voters,

not to mention a cartoon frog.

Meanwhile, we have politicians abusing their positions at the Department of State to enrich their own families.

But somehow, we are supposed to hate, Hate! a civil rights pioneer

because they have decided to broadcast something different from what he said.

It looks like that Civil War 2 nobody wanted to believe was going to happen... is going to happen sooner than people think.

Then again, none of that was beyond my analysis.

Still waiting for people to pick up the gun. We know it won't be the likes of Ymar, so who's going to do it?
