The evil of democracy

Columbia Conservative Examiner: Democracy = Majority Rule = Tyranny

Suppose that the entirety of our society, from top to bottom, from the federal government to local government, was run according to ‘majority rule,’ which is commonly known as ‘democracy.’

I can state unequivocally that such a move would be the single largest disaster to be perpetrated on the human race since the Holocaust.

And he is absolutely correct.  In numerous discussions with hive-minded collectivists who think we live in, or should live in, a pure democracy, there are easy points to be made that will have them shutting up fairly quickly.  But I think my favorite is this:  In a pure democracy, 51% of the people can vote to exterminate the other 49%.

My goodness

A new DHS report that puts ALL “conservatives” into the “domestic terrorist” classification seems to have caused something of an uproar.

Well, it’s nice to be able to welcome so many new people into the fold, but really, we did try to warn you.

Just a spoonful of sugar

Mary Poppins’ ghost appeared in a Google Street View photo.

How did it get there? Google put it there. They have done this in other places and with other fictional characters such as the Paddington Bear and Sherlock Holmes.

So what?

So this:  if they can put fictional characters where they aren’t, they can put real individuals where they aren’t.

This shouldn’t be news to anyone; the technology to do this has existed for quite some time.  But expect them to graduate from light-heartedly putting famous fictional characters into actual photos to light-heartedly putting actual individuals into actual photos.  Such falsified images will be recognized as false but used for propaganda anyway because the mindless herds will think it is so cool, and because to them, the idea is more important than the fact.

Just wait for it.  And don’t forget to use plenty of sugar.

News snippet at NFL FanHouse.

That’s not good enough.  Until I hear he has been reduced to gathering aluminum cans from the side of the road because no one else will hire him, I won’t believe justice has been done.
