"If at age 20 you are a conservative then you have no heart. If at age 30 you are a liberal then you have no brains."
Sir Winston Churchill

Obama obviously knows very little about economics, specifically that "Society stagnates when independent productive achievers begin to be socially demonized and even punished for their accomplishments." This dilemma fogs Obama's reality. To him, accepting this truth is a "false choice", his answer to things he doesn't understand. And by the way... where is John Galt?

I have come to the conclusion that many people who identify themselves as "Progressives" are simply crazy and I mean that in a clinical sense.

Trying to have a cogent, logical, factual, rational and civil discussion with them about almost anything today has become increasingly impossible.  You offer facts...they become unhinged and begin to call you  names.  You challenge their their assertions and they make things up out of whole cloth.

They get away with this for the following reasons:

one: The teachers of teachers have become predominately left wing who see education as the pathway to indoctrinate children about social justice, political correctness, magical thinking, America as a racist nation, Israel is the bad guy and sexuality.  Author MaryBeth Hicks has identified Bill Ayers as "the high priest of this effort.  "Leftism" she says "has become the rule and not the exception".

two:  "Progressives" are essentially socialists with nasty attitudes who prove Einstein's rule about insanity...they keep doing the same thing  and each time expect a different outcome.   The problem is that since they now dominate Academia from pre-K through post graduate studies including Law Schools, Journalism Schools. Ed schools, Social Work Schools  and the like, our children no longer have any idea, unless we have educated them, of the truth about our history, current affairs, how the government functions (or is supposed to function), or how our economy works.  Thus our children have become prey to the insane world view of the "Progressive" elites
three: "Progressives" dominate our culture which is the soft white underbelly of our society.  Music, literature, film television and even art have become political weapons to challenge our values, our faith and our tradition.

four:  The news media, both print and electronic, are predominantly left wing "Progressive".  On a daily basis they slant facts, under report, distort, ignore or make things up and call it news.  They have short attention spans and in an almost preternaturally fashion seem to take their cues from government "Progressives" also on a daily basis.

last:  The "Progressives" have swallowed up one of the two major parties and have the elected officials of that party advocating for programs that don't work, are obsolete, are corrupt, and wasteful of the taxpayers money.  Their core constituencies are donors, victim groups that they have nurtured and not the American  people.

Here are some examples of where "Progressive" ideology has morphed into psychological disfunctionality in the last 10 days:

1) In NYC "Progressive"  Federal Judge Shira Scheindlin who recently struck down the most successful weapon for reducing violent crime yet used by modern policing, appointed a 13 person panel of Law Professors called her "Academic Advisory Council" to assist her in micro managing the NYPD.  Only one had any experience with law enforcement.  The rest were either novices in this realm or shared Scheindlin's world view. One, Professor Tracey Mears of Yale reportedly "favors the policing practices of Chicago " over that of the NYPD.  Chicago is now the Murder Capitol of the country and the Democratic Governor has offered the use of the National Guard to restore the peace.  Meanwhile gun crimes are up 13% in NYC and Stop and Frisks are down 17% since Scheindlin issued her insane decision.

2)  On September 24th several 7th graders in Virginia Beach Va. were playing with their legal soft pellet guns in the yard of one of the boys while they waited for the bus.  A neighbor reported them and their  "zero tolerance" school "expelled" them for the rest of the year.  The message here is that "we the state have ultimate authority over your children at all times and in all places!"

3) The "uber"  "Progressive" and equally  crazy Nancy Pelosi said this week that the cupboard was bare and no money could be cut from the 2014 Federal Budget.  She said this as her President  proposed cutting $540 Billion from Medicare and Social Security in his version of the budget...but then Nancy usually is unaware of most of what is going on around her which will not stop her from  blaming the Republicans for these cuts if they go through.

4)  College student Robert Van Tuinen of Modesto College was prohibited from handing out copies of the U.S. Constitution on campus to celebrate "Constitution Day" by college officials. Instead he was informed he could hand them out at a small, secluded area called the "free speech zone".  Modesto College apparently finds the Constitution too controversial a document for its students to know about.  The expulsion of our basic governing document from the public square is insane as is the limiting of where students can express their 1st Admendment rights.

5) At a public open  forum on the "Common Core" in Towson Md., parent Robert Small was arrested, handcuffed, charged with assault and made to sit on the curb cuffed because he tried to ask a question of the Baltimore Co. School Board that they had not pre-cleared for this open public hearing.  Video clearly shows that security assaulted him.

6) The NYTimes and the NY Daily News are so obsessed with the delusion that guns and not people kill people that they went ballistic with reports that the killer in the Navy Yard used an AR 15 rifle, which he did not.  The Times sort of apologized but the News did not even though it devoted its front page and at least four pages on the evils of this weapon.  It later turned out that Aaron Alexis the killer was mentally ill and a devotee of violent internet games which would link him with most of the other recent mass killers.  Covering mental illness apparently hits too close to home for the News.

7)  On Tuesday the President went before the U.N. General Assembly and declared that the world was more stable than it was five years ago when he took office.  Last year he told the General Assembly that a video caused the Benghazi attacks.

This is the week that was in the "Progressive" Asylum!
