Why We Don't Have to Respond to the Left's Trick Questions

As you know, the lefties on this blog love to throw "have you stopped beating your wife questions?" I have never been able to understand why we have readers on the Right who enjoy being suckered into useless debates when we have a Catch 22 to throw back at them. As you know Catch 22 is a requirement that cannot be met until a prerequisite requirement is met, however, the prerequisite cannot be obtained until the original requirement is met.

The Left has a Catch 22 they will never answer. They can’t. Their Catch 22 is there is not enough money in the whole wide world to cover their promises. And if they expect to take the money from the successful, history has already taught us that if you squeeze the successful too hard, they and their money go elsewhere. (Not to mention if they create a welfare population at the same time, who will be left to pay taxes?)

So, my question to our readers when I gave you the golden opportunity to Catch 22 the Lefties, why did you choose to go off point? Santa Clauses Why not just let the obvious Catch 22 just hang out there in cyberspace, unanswerable?

It is a fact that if the Leftists not only made them (the evil rich) pay 90% tax and then confiscated any money that all the millionaires and billionaires had over the Left's version of "fair share" it wouldn't run the government for a year even if you didn't add any more give a ways.
It's a Catch 22, but the Liberal's inner child will never see it.

Conservatives cannot make a credible argument with the goal of liberals because facts, math, justice and humanity are not on their side.
Liberals have real models to support their goal of Free Societies, personal freedom, with liberty, justice, education and health care as human rights. Societies where the environment is protected, as is the rights of workers. Socialist Democratic governments has free elections( Election more fair than those in Watauga Cty NC under new GOP gerrymandering and voter suppression rules). Norway and Finland have millionaires, small business, global corporations, and free market economies but they also invest in their citizens helping them attain their most productive skill, knowledge and income levels. That investment is repaid with less crime, fewer people on welfare, fewer citizens incarcerated, and higher percentage of citizens paying taxes supporting society.
Notice, SARK has to make up phony liberal goals to begin a debate, no one is suggesting a 90% tax but they are suggesting the wealthy pay Social Security on all earned income like 98% of American workers. They are suggesting less subsidies for major corporations and that major corporation pay workers a living wage.

Anonymous, There is not enough money on this planet to pay for your lotus smoking dreams piled on top of what your crowd has already put us in debt for. Perhaps if you could tell us how you plan to give people your pie in the sky without killing the goose that laid the golden egg along the way, maybe someone on this blog will be foolhardy enough to give you the time of day.

Tell us any conservative plan has benefited all of society. And, for the record, the "goose that laid the golden egg" was a fairy tale.

The Conservative pie in the sky is the F-35 Fighter Jet at $110,000,000 each to fight an enemy in a $1,500 pickup or now in a US made Humvee which we paid for at about $100,000 each.

We alway have money for war, police, prisons and tax cuts for the rich.

Conservatives are big on fear, war, police states, torture, prisons, exploitation and hating "those people"

Blogger said...

DR Are you sure as a leftie you want to bring up the expression "fairy tale."

Democratus Rex said...

It was your reference.

The US Constitution... about as Conservative as you can get. But, you have to follow it, not keep bastardizing it with Liberalism.

Democratus Rex said...

"The US Constitution... about as Conservative as you can get." Pesky liberals with all those amendments and stuff. And the idea that it is a living document that evolves over time, well that is blasphemy. Especially since conservatives don't believe in evolution.

Sarkazein said...

CanadianRex- As Amendments are part of the US Constitution, I don't, nor did I write, believe those are a bastardization there of. It would be the Left's interpretations of the US Constitution as in "freedom from religion, it's ok to murder the pre-born even though they are protected in the opening paragraph, guns are for hunting only and only for the government to carry, it's ok to take someone's land by force and sell it to a developer who will create a higher tax usage, and like that.

Sarkazein said...

And the government shall provide the welfare...like that.

We have some cranky leftie readers on our blog chiding us as to answer their challenges. First of all, nothing requires us to do it. Secondly, we can’t, because typically they are of the “have you stopped beating your wife” variety. By that I mean to even answer why we don’t have programs addressing this or that, presupposes that we should have such programs. We are Constitutionalist 10th Amendmenters guys. You on the left should not even be doing what you are doing. Beyond that, we don’t believe you should be borrowing money to do what you are not suppose to be doing anyway. We Conservatives definitely don’t want to borrow money to do what we shouldn’t be doing!

James Woods should know how stupid Sanders is. It is reported that Woods has an I.Q. of 180. Albert Einstein had an I.Q. of approximately 160. Another source lists Woods' I.Q. as 184. He scored a perfect 800 on the Verbal portion of the SAT and a 779 in Math.

You are making a political an moral argument, using a movie star's reported IQ????

Conservatives have a history of confusing the character played by movie stars with reality. Examples of this are Ronald Reagan, Clint Eastwood, and more recent Fred Thompson.
Reality is difficult for conservatives.

Sarkazein said...

Blogger- Perhaps you give liberals too much credit. I don't think they purposely ask trick questions. Look at Anonymouse 1:02 not even being capable of comprehending the link or the comment. There is no way a mind so shallow could come up with trick questions. I believe it to be liberal dogma that makes their questions appear to be trick. Their questions are based in misconception, not trickery.

Anonymous, as to the reality of movie stars, follow me in this: When Jane Fonda finished speaking to a packed auditorium at ASU she made a bee line straight for me. Grabbing my hand, she told me that when she was in an uncertain part of the country, she picked out a friendly face in the audience and spoke to that person.

She thanked me for being that person.

At that moment I was holding hands with Barbarella, Brees in Klute, Gloria in They Shoot Horses, Corie in Barefoot in the Park, and on and on.

And you are trying to tell me that was not real! Anonymous, you are the sort of person you have to keep away from the children, lest they tell them that Santa is not real. You are not a nice person.

Sark we have a problem with Anon 1:02. I believe he is our brainy Anon. Therefore, I wish he or she would take a moniker so that one can be differentiated out from the trolls. I think you meant 3:09.

Blogger- Thank you for the opportunity to revise. I should have written Anonymouse 3:09 not Anonymous 1:02.
My apologies to Anonymous 3:09.
