One thought on “Speaking of John Galt

  1. stuff like this: Knowing Jon Corzine, and knowing the abjcet lawlessness and contempt for humanity of the Marxist Obama regime and its cronies, this is not really a surprise. (bold my own)No, she shouldn’t say that, because (cf Worme’s comment), yes, it’s over the top, and technically untrue (Obama has not formally embraced Marxism in any public statement that I know of), hence easily disprovable and hence undercuts everything else she’s saying. Obama is not technically a Marxist, therefore maybe the system is not corrupt, and therefore maybe Corzine did not steal money. See? You throw something formally untrue into the mix with things that are true, and suddenly all things are in doubt. The rule of law is non-existent, instead replaced with godless, criminal political cronyism. (bold my own)I’m a religious person, even a religiously orthodox person. There’s a place to discuss God and godlessness. It’s not in the middle of a financial report. (i.e. I’d trust a trustworthy atheist with my money before I’d trust Jimmy Swaggart.) It’s off tone and off topic, and undercuts everything else that is said.Maybe I’m nitpicking, but this is why a lot of otherwise serious conservatives can’t get themselves elected. Just as liberals are often astoundingly tone deaf to how arrogant, smug and smarmy they can sound, conservatives are often astoundingly tone deaf to how fanatical they can sound.
