Similarities???

I have been noticing alot of similarities of late. These similarities are not often noticed at first glance ... but when you think about it, they are amazingly alike.

Democratic State Legislatures and Despotic Middle-Eastern Dictators

Both of these are Rulers that are having a hard time realizing that the citizenry has kicked them to the curb. They are trying to hang on to power for dear life. They are attacking their own citizens (the despots use the military and mercenaries ... the democrats use union thugs). They don't realize that rulers lead by the consent of the governed.

Unions and the Communist Party

This similarity was brought to life during an interview with a pro-union supporter in Wisconsin. As the supporter was stating that the Communists were not taking part in the demonstrations, a group of them marched behind, waving their red flags and shouting pro-worker slogans. It looked like a skit from Saturday Night Live.

Democrats and Petulant Children

Actually, this one is pretty self-evident. We have Democrats running away and hiding from their constituents, spending money without a care as to how or who will pay the bill, throwing tantrums ... etc.

Whatever happened to all the hype after the Arizona shooting of Congresswoman Giffords? Weren't Republicans and Democrats supposed to enter into a milder public discourse of their differences? I guess that only applies to Republicans ... after all, see the above similarity.

The "new public discourse" is worse that the "old public discourse." That's what happens when the Left sees its power slipping away.

You're spot on with this statement, Paul:

Both of these are Rulers that are having a hard time realizing that the citizenry has kicked them to the curb.

Right on all counts. They don't see it though. A sad day for the US if Wisconsin governor doesn't hold firm.

If he stays strong that will give other states incentive to do the same.

We can only hope that the governor will hold his ground and not give in to the pressure.

We need to keep him and this whole situation in prayer.

Btw, I am originally for El Paso, TX. Great coincidence.

Paul, excellent observation. I've noticed the similarities between Islam and Leftism for awhile now, but you lay it out very nicely!

AOW ... Losing power is never easy, but they have got to learn to deal with it.

Debbie ... There is no reason for the governor to back down. Public opinion is on his side. This is not so much a matter of union-busting as an anti-corruption issue. Where else do the workers help to get their boss put into power ... then that boss rewards them with lucrative deals that are paid for by future generations?

Leticia ... no wonder you are a Star Trek fan. Gene Roddenberry grew up in El Paso. I've long wondered why this city hasn't put up a Star Trek museum, along with a theme park to draw the annual Trekkie convention.

Angel ... actually AOW made that statement ... but I will happily take credit for it.

Karen ... There are similarities between leftism and almost all crazy, off the wall isms :)

Paul, you would think with such a huge following Star Trek has that they would do something to honor the man that created it. He was a genius.

This is one reason that I am proud to say that I am from El Paso. I miss my home, btw. I haven't been back in over 18 years.
