A Leopard Cannot Change Its Spots, Nor Can A Progressive

My father told me many years ago that “people are what they are,” that is such a true statement. All people have their own belief system, we all believe what we want to believe, the things that make sense to us. But, there are certain people in this world that will not change their views no matter how wrong they actually are, enter the Progressives.

For those of you who might not know, New York City (my hometown) has elected a communist for a Mayor. I am not slinging arrows here, he readily admits what he is and did so during his campaign, he even honeymooned in Cuba, what does that tell you, New York has surely fallen since I grew-up and lived there.

Recently in the New York Post, there was a story about how few minorities are getting into specialized schools, the schools that you must pass an entrance exam to get into. It seems that more black and Hispanic students took the entrance exam to get into the city’s elite high schools this year, but their pass rates were as dismal as ever, said officials. Of the 5,096 students accepted by eight specialized schools, just 5  percent were black and 7 percent were Hispanic.

Now, what does Mayor De Blasio think we should do about this? Well, like all other Liberal-Progressives, he wants to lower standards, (Sounds like a President we all know.) You see to the Liberal-Progressives, the only “fair” thing to do is make the test easier so everyone can get into these schools, God forbid he should find a way to get these kids to study more. Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña said the administration would make changes. “We must do more to reflect the diversity of our city in our top-tier schools and we are committed to doing just that.”  Of course to the Liberal-Progressives it does not matter if those kids qualify for those schools, as long as they are enrolled, politicians think they are doing their job, the show must go on.

Even parents realize that the Mayor is totally wrong in his assessment. “Leave the exam alone and help our students meet the standards. The solution is to improve the elementary and middle schools in neighborhoods of color so the students can perform and pass the exam,” said Mona Davids, head of the New York City Parents Union. Why don’t we elect people like this parent to public office, at least she has common sense, something those Liberal-Progressives seem to lack.

The Presidents big agenda right now is income inequality, he believes the top is making too much and the lower is making too little. Naturally, he wants to lower people at the top, instead of finding a way to raise the people at the lower end, typical, very typical.

It has been the agenda for the Democratic Party for too long to punish the rich, that is the only way that we can see true income equality in this country. The Democratic Party has done nothing but demoralize the American spirit in this country piece by piece. Back in 2010 in his speech to a Quincy, Illinois audience about Wall Street reform, Obama said, “We’re not, we’re not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that’s “fairly” earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”

Obama knows when people have made enough money, so when that time comes, he knows that’s the time to start taking it from them and giving it to people who don’t have any, that seems only fair. Obama and  Mayor De Blasio are cut from the same hunk of wood, Progressivism, it works like the Vulcan mind meld. Only they know what is fair and only they know how to achieve it, no matter how much common sense says otherwise.

Progressivism: “Every step we take towards making the state our caretaker of our lives, by that much we move toward making the state our master.” Dwight D. Eisenhower.

  2. Leopards never have been among my favorite cats…And they belong in a cage…Unfortunately, the litters have been shipped all over the Country. They are easily tracked, but difficult to get rid of. I wonder if our ‘hunters’ are shooting blanks. I hear the bang, but nothing seems to bring down the “Cats”. Perhaps we should consider hunters that can ‘think’ like them & are able to take aim at vitals….I’m justa sayin’…

  3. Expert. That is the American messiah. The Expert. Experts know best what is good for us. Whew, sure glad because I’m just an amateur.

    Experts know it is better to lower standards than improve those who don’t meet the Standards.

    Experts know it is better to slam all of us into poverty rather than tap into the over 100 Trillion dollars in valuable minerals our natural recourses hold.

    Experts know it is best to steal from the rich and give it to the poor. Oh that IS justice in their eyes!

    Experts know how best to administer our healthcare.

    Experts know that the minority of ONE is a non-existent mythological fable! They believe minorities are strictly made up of “special people”.

    I HATE experts!

    They have intoxicated our society with their narcotic of security and collectivism! Good is evil and evil is Good! They do not ignore the Constitution. They deliberately ASSAULT it because, being Experts, they know the Constitution is an evil outdated document that keeps the GOODness of Government from fulfilling its almighty purpose – to TAKE CARE of us!

    I am a Constitutional Libertarian and I recognize that the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and Bill of Rights were written BY Amateurs FOR Amateurs; a “We the People” who had the fortitude to take care of themselves! The experts have complicated EVERYTHING beyond the Amateur’s ability to grasp and control his own life!

    I use to repair my own car in my garage or literally under a shade tree. Now I open the hood and imagine a plate of spaghetti! I take so many pills I can’t eat a proper breakfast because I’m FULL! And I can’t oppose every issue the Federal Government, liberals, progressives – THEY ARE ALL COMMUNISTS! – throw at me because they are so complex and so numerous I literally don’t have the time!

    I hate experts. I will not trade my freedom for their “oh so generous” compassion for my well being. Since I’m a European descendant “white boy” their compassion for me probably means death in their Agenda 21 objective! The White man is an evil scourge you know.

    I swore to uphold and defend the Constitution – and I DAMNED WELL WILL! And you can count on me NOT being nice about it! This is one leapard thet WILL NOT allow his spots to be changed!
