Rick Ledgett on TED

So I’ll first note that I’ve literally NEVER had so much trouble getting through a TED talk due to technical difficulties, NEVER. It crashed my entire roku device 4 times, each which required a hard restart. Just saying…. And in between those events was a constant rebuffering and lack of signal.

Coincidence…..? Sure, why not.

Having taken due note of that, I now feel like I need a shower after the ocean of self-righteous and indignant bullshit I just had vomited on me out of my TV, that guy is a true scumbag.

To say that I find his statements WILDLY at variance with obvious facts, as well as self-serving and contemptuously patronizing in the extreme, is to say that I would have an issue with being thrown out of a plane without a parachute, it’s not even worth talking any more about.

These people call themselves Americans, unreal.

Backstage on the set of Idiocracy…..

Not long ago a friend of mine used a phrase I hadn’t heard before – “The Angry Left”, and at the time I thought that was a very odd thing to say, given that almost all the shrill spit-flying anger I’ve EVER heard in Politics was from people on the right, and I’ve really never heard serious anger from anyone I know on the left…..in fact, I’M the one who is usually the angry one on the left, and I don’t really get that angry at people about this stuff, (mainly because I figure if they don’t get what’s going on, they must be challenged somehow, and I don’t like to make fun), so where is this angry left? (I now know that it’s a phrase the right has floated out there to give their base another canard-bomb to throw when someone starts using facts truth and other pesky stuff that needs to be obscured in a tidal wave of biley glue that you can’t get off your body without a shower, a bottle of toilet cleaner, and a belt sander.)

So where is the “Angry Left”….? Well, I guess it’s NOT in Strongsville, Ohio.

This is a place that National Geographic needs to go out and do some of their genetic mapping at, because I think we’ve found the “Missing Link“, or the extras from the movie “Idiocracy” at least.

Now I’ll grant you that the videographers in these clips must have known what they were gonna get when they started filming here, but if there is a Mother-Lode of dumbass knee-jerk redneck Stoopid-Is-As-Stoopid-Does Gumpaliciousness, this is the spot. Full of people who are just plain angry at……ummm…….well, I’m not quite sure what, but they’re REALLY ANGRY at any rate, and filled with inarticulate half or non truths that they’ve gleaned word for word from Limbaugh/O’Reilly/et al, these folks give new meaning to the phrase “Dumber than a Bag of Hair”.

Unless you’ve been living in your closet for the last week you’re probably already seen some of this, but since that’s possible, here’s some looks at what I’m talking about….

Ok, call me an elitist………..great, thanx. Now, if you were on Obama’s Secret Service detail, you’d be looking around a little harder in that part of the country wouldn’t you? Makes me a little scared for the guy, because THIS kind of thing gets a little past politics and gets into some, shall we say, “darker” parts of the human psyche. I mean seriously, do YOU know anyone who’s this angry on the left, (besides me of course) who doesn’t also chain themselves to trees?

Anyways, I’d love to see ANY evidence of this kind of nuttiness on the left, and be assured that I will put any vids that show lefty weirdness up, because it’s either real and I can say “Well, I was wrong” or it’ll be obvious BS and I can make fun of you in public….so send it in!

A bit confused, have I got this right?

A friend sent this to me, knowing I couldn’t resist posting it, so without further ado….

If you grow up in Hawaii , raised by your grandparents, you’re ‘exotic, different.’

Grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers, a quintessential American story.

If your name is Barak you’re a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.

Name your kids Willow , Trig and Track, you’re a maverick.

Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.

Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you’re well grounded.

If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate’s Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran’s Affairs committees, you don’t have any real leadership experience.

If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you’re qualified to become the country’s second highest ranking executive.

If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you’re not a real Christian.

If you cheated on your first wife for years with other women and with a very rich young heiress, then left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you’re a Christian.

If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.

If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state’s school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you’re very responsible.

If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family’s values don’t represent America ‘s.

If your husband is nicknamed ‘First Dude’, with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn’t register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.

I’m a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight…

OK, much clearer now

McScum and the blatant stupidity of some people…..

So McCain’s people have put a video out, which basically hints that Obama might be the Anti-Christ.

No, I’m not f**king kidding.

The action of putting the ad out there means a coupla things…

  • McCain’s people think that some people will be swayed into voting for McCain because they believe it’s possible or even true.
  • They’re probably right.
  • McCain's people call it tongue in cheek, and humorous.......here it is, what do YOU think they are trying to do with this?

    Let’s look at this in more detail….

    Are there people who think that Obama is or could be the Anti-Christ?

    No f**king way….right…..?

    Well, oops, turns out there are a whole bunch of them. On this site there is a poll asking if Obama is the Anti-Christ, as I write this only 28% say definitively no. The rest say yes or could be, with 48% saying he IS.

    I could ask my boots a question and get a smarter answer than that.

    I’m sorry, is that rude?

    Lemme see now….is it rude to call people who believe that a demon, from HELL, will come to the Earth in the guise of some sort of leader, rise to a very powerful position and then be really mean to everyone and make them watch Faux News and listen to PocaHaunted for hours until they scream in agony and drive railroad spikes into their ears……is it RUDE to say these people are complete f**king morons?

    When they not only say that, but that the entity in question is in fact BARACK OBAMA!?!?!?, is it rude to then mention that they might be crack-smoking vegetables with the IQ of a mic stand and the common sense of a can of motor oil?

    If not, then what would it take to put that label on someone….for that someone to say it’s NOT true? THEN would that person be dumber than a wet paper sack?

    I mean seriously, either there’s an Anti-Christ coming or there’s not, and if there is, it’s either it’s Barack Obama or it’s not yeh?


    How crazy and medieval do you have to be to believe this crap?

    Well, here’s a quote from the sane and rational person that has started the above mentioned blog -

    Barack Obama the Antichrist?

    I am not an extremist, I do not believe every site I have linked to, I just want you to read, explore, and think about this topic. The topic is that Barack Hussein Obama may be the Antichrist. He is a charismatic leader many are looking to as a messiah, and comparing to Jesus. Read your bibles, pray, prepare yourself. You do not have to believe me, I am not completely sure, but what you can do is watch and listen and pay attention. Read the Bible, I found a website that has a Biblical explanation, and interpretation, baseds strictly on quoting scripture that explains the Antichrist and end of times, take it as an interpetation. I don’t think anyone understands the Bible 100% http://www.biblicist.org/prophecy/6TheAnti-Christ.htm

    Uh hunh……

    Hmmm…..he doesn’t think anyone understands the Bible 100%………yeh well……I don’t understand the Bible even 1% (it’s ALL a huge violent comic book to me…..why not base a religious system on “The Lord of the Rings”….it’s more fun and makes every bit as much sense…) but even with that less than 1% understanding of the Bible I STILL have the good sense to know Obama ain’t the frigging Anti-Christ…..you mouth-breathing bridge troll!

    Ok, to bring it back to reality for a second…..obviously the McCain people are working this angle as a way to get some more votes from that community, and some bloggers and others that support our current Dark Ages governmental mentality and would like to see it continue are playing along.

    So it’s really a DEEPLY cynical and incredibly patronizing manipulation of a group of people who McCain and his people think are SO dumb that they think the best way to eat peas is with a knife….

    Before I forget, here’s the CNN report that first made me aware of this raging foolishness –

    And just for fun, here’s the Google Search they mention, and then here’s the search on YouTube for more Crazy F**king Idiots Who think Obama is the Anti-Christ. Or don’t in some cases.

    And yes I know I’m helping them get their message out, but I look at it more as dragging drooling Bridge Trolls out into the sunlight so everyone can see what they are, and tell them to go take a bath or something cause yeesh man….what IS that SMELL?

    Here’s my fave YouTube on this subject (so far, there’s some great stuff there)….yeh hit that bong again boys….I remember many drug addled speed raps like this in my youth…well ok, I don’t really REMEMBER them to be entirely accurate, but I KNOW they happened….fer sure dude…..

    And here’s one of my fave links against all this idiotic muttering, awesome answer guys!
