Marxists for Trump!

Zizek is getting fat. Still he remains oddly endearing, even though it's become increasingly obvious that he is absolutely NUTZ.

I've yet to see an officially recognized "intellectual" who wasn't.

All the earnest blather has no more effect than a thousand maids with a thousand brooms zealously trying to sweep the ocean into line.

THEY ALL LAUGHED

The odds were a hundred to one against me
The world thought the heights were too high to climb
But people from Missouri never incensed me
Oh, I wasn’t a bit concerned
For from hist’ry I had learned
How many, many times the worm had turned

They all laughed at Christopher Columbus
When he said the world was round
They all laughed when Edison recorded sound
They all laughed at Wilbur and his brother
When they said that man could fly
They told Marconi
Wireless was baloney
It’s the same old cry

They laughed at our wanting Trump
Said we were reaching for the moon
But Trump came through
Now they’ll have to change their tune

They all said Trump just couldn't be elected
They laughed at us, and how!
But ho, ho, ho!
Who’s got the last laugh now?

They all laughed at Rockefeller Center
Now they’re fighting to get in
They all laughed at Whitney and his cotton gin
They all laughed at Fulton and his steamboat
Hershey and his chocolate bar
Ford and his tin lizzie
Kept the scoffers busy
That’s how people are

They laughed at our wanting Trump
Said it would be, "hello, goodbye."
But Trump came through
Now they’re eating humble pie

They all said he'd never make the White House
Now he's taking a bow
For ho, ho, ho!
Who’s got the last laugh?
He, hee, hee!
Let’s at the past laugh
Ha, ha, ha!
Who’s got the last laugh now? "

Funny how he laughs at those who propose the continuation of the socialist welfare state... and then proposes communist internationalism with a human face as a solution to Europe's economic problems.

-FJ said...

...and yes, the 'hysterics' won the election. Let's see if they can reform the socialist state sufficiently to make a difference.

I'm a determined optimist. It's not easy, but I AM determined. };^)>

If Mr. Trump does't pan out, we are certainly no worse off than we would have been if that CUNT had managed to ass-end to The Throne.

And thank you for pinpointing the inconsistency in Zizek's rhetoric that makes it hard for me to take him too seriously.

Because I believe "RESULTS are ALL that COUNT," I have always assumed Karl Marx's motives to have been malevolent, but perhaps he was –– like Zizek –– just an amiable eccentric with wild ideas who earnestly believed in the essential benevolence and integrity of his own thinking while blind got its inevitable ramifications?

No matter WHAT happened, I could never be persuaded to believe that Zizek has a mean bone in his pudgy, bearded body. He too closely resembles a child's beloved, well-worn Teddy Bear for that. §;^D

You have to remember that Marx was around for the "robber baron" era of early industrialization. Kapital was "accumulating" then, just as he predicted. Unfortunately "big" government is NO solution to the problem of "big" business. BOTH require "legal castration" through the establishment of a "balance of powers" commercial legal system that penalizes over-capitalization. Teddy Roosevelt got it wrong, as well. Only the "radical progressives" had it right.

I happen to be a GREAT ADMIRER of those-called ROBBER BARONS. It was THEY who almost single-handedly made the USA the great superpower it ultimately became after the devastation and utter ruin wrought by Stinkin' Lincoln's War.

The derisive term "Robber Barons" was conjured up by the Marxian-Progressive-Liberal-Leftist-Statist-Bastards who were determined then as now to REDUCE America's greatness to a smoldering pile of ashes and soot.

Like it ir not CAPITAL is the fuel that enables GROWTH, PRODUCTIVITY and PROSPERITY. It can't be dine with VERBIAGE. Without CAPITAL we would soon be reduced to BRUTE SAVAGERY –– as it was in The Beginning.

There're very good reasons why ENVY is listed as one of the SEVEN DEADLY SINS. It it were up to me, however, I would put SELF-RIGHTEOUS BOSSINESS at the TOP of a list of EIGHT DEADLY SINS.

Marxism is rooted in ENVY, the LUST for VENGEANCE, and the poisonous fantasy Man has harbored since The Fall from Eden to Function as His Own God.

___AN OPEN INVITATION ___

If you'd like to enjoy some celebratory music –– but with a twist –– come to my blog http://freethinkesblog.blogspot –– We've posted three classic versions of GOODY GOODY with Peggy Lee! –– Ella Fitzgerald! –– and BENNY GOODMAN and His Orchestra with Helen Wood!

Also, DON'T MISS Western Hero today whatever you do. They've gone all out with GREAT Music Videos Expressing Joy and Deep Satisfaction which is what all of us who've suffered under the now-defunct regime of The Black Knight have suffered for the past eight years.

Gone too, thank God, is the gnawing anxiety over the prospect of a VAGlNACRACY administered by Hillary RATCHED Clinton.

NOTE: Later today –– at 1:00 PM to be precise –– FreeThinke's blog is featuring a home made parody of Gershwin's THEY ALL LAUGHED with a classic duet version by LOUIE ARMSTRONG and ELLA FITZGERALD.

Please drop by unless you're a Wet Blanket in which case you know where you can go.

It's PARTY TIME now! The time for QUESTIONS, MOANING, WHINING, –– and DEBATE –– is OVER! at LAST, thank GOD!!!

HURRAY and HALLELUJAH, you 'RATS had it comin' to ya!!!

Stinker is always good for few buckets of belly laughter!

Why not just say "Everything in moderation" straight out, instead of going though such lengthy obscurantist song and dance routine?

After long years of observation and considerable study I have come to realize that the who consider themselves intellectuals too often seem to couch common knowledge in the most abstruse terms possible in order to make themselves feel smarter or appear more significant than they really are.

Said poor Gert, as the Bishop withdrew,
“My dear sir, I’m afraid this won’t do,
For the Vicar is slicker,
And thicker and quicker
And longer and stronger than you!

Why not just grunt and point?

And then there's:

"it ultimately became after the devastation and utter ruin wrought by Stinkin' Lincoln's War."

Care to 'mansplain', Stinker?
