Mock me when you are hungry.

Mock me when those you support turn on you, when your usefulness has ended.

Knock on my door and ask me for food

I’ll feed you. With glee.

The best thing we could do is modify the way information is dispensed to the public.

If the WashCompost reporter is sensible she wouldn’t walk up to armed citizens and disturb the peace by by mocking them.

Well worth repeating.

There are several segments which for some reason do not ever get taken over by conservatives.

Education is one.

The media, with specific exceptions is another.

Both those trends need to change dramatically.

You don’t think Education and Media qualify as real jobs?

Wake up, they pay well many places, better all the time.

Good retirements also.

They should contact Free Republic. There are any number of people here who can explain conservatism to them (basic economics and human behavior) and indicate what the democrats are doing to this country and how it relates to individual families. What has been missing is the need to make it personal. Tell them how much THEY owe and how much their taxes will go up.

The Liberals/Commies/Marxist/Socialist/Feminist have for the last what 40 ? 50 years or more have infiltrated all our institutions like our universities collages, schools, media, churches and turn around is fair play.
Our side needs to do the same, infiltrate the leftist strongholds, institutions, or what ever to weaken them, to bring them down.

" Simply refuse her questions politely and say that you won’t answer her silly questions. "
Infiltrate their ranks, give them what they want... answers... just not the " ANSWERS " that they want.
sysops... frustrate them... steer them away from exactly what they want..

There are several segments which for some reason do not ever get taken over by conservatives.

We do not have the "infiltrate and conquer" mentality. The commies have been doing it for 100 years. Generations have passed through their incremental leftist brainwashing of the children. Today's parents are products of that and their children will be more leftist.

How do you break that? I don't know. I think it's a bit late. We may have passed the tipping point.

I guess she couldn’t find the right-wingers so despairing they were considering jumping out the windows of their Fairfax County brick ramblers

Maybe she should have tracked down one of the 8,000 DC nuts who voted for Romeny

Dead on.

Perhaps focus on one agenda :ie. the Media and defeat or overcome them. All individual groups come together for this sole purpose. As the Rats do.

There seems to be a lot of vacillation amongst the troops which works against attaining the goal. RINO vs conservative. . .that's how you lose.

How do you break that? I don't know.

I just finished watching, Biography Mao Tse Tung: China's Peasant Emperor, on Hulu.

Communist + students = revolution, but the documentary is vague as to what causes students to embrace their own slavery....other than the oratory of the leader and the destitution of the middle & lower classes. 0bama turned out even more student votes this time. Mao did away with the 'intellectuals' until he had none that opposed him. He did the same with the journalists and the 'rightists' as well.

I surmise if the 0bama regime holds steady on the course we see them taking ...there is fear, legitimate fear within the progessive democrats to speak out. Careers ruined and we should make no mistake about that...look at the level of nastiness we've seen the past few weeks.

So many similarities with the tactics and the insular nature of the 0bama regime. We're watching the military purge now, post election/Benghazi. If they want to get away with their lives...they stepdown and if they want their families to live ...they say nothng. (which is contrary to what many on this site believe.) Naively they are looking for tell all books to forthcoming, they will be waiting a long time.

Fox's lurch leftward. Many here feeling betrayed by Fox News.

Calls for reporters to go out and look for 'right-wing nuts,' to mock. Suddenly, that is not all that different from what Mao had done to the "rightist land owners" during the leap forward.

The tactics and the timing are the same. The only difference is the violence...so far. But if threats are going on behind closed doors and military vets are classified as potential terrorists...

We're way past the tipping point. Instead of 'making these generals' disappear into some jail or gulag...they...retire. My money bets though...if they speak/leak...death is on their doorstep.

“Right wing nuts”: what the North Koreans call the freedom- loving citizens of South Korea.

These clowns at the Washington Post will not be so happy by the end of 2014. At that time, the US will be back in recession, the public will be very angry about the dreadful Obamacare law, and King Barry will be thoroughly despised by the majority of Americans. (...and the GOP will have taken control of the House and the Senate by then).

Here's a note to Anne Hull: I know you read FR, so sign up and send me a FReep mail. I would be happy to answer any of your questions.

Oh, btw Anne, mocking an armed right wing nut is not a good idea in the morning before coffee. So let's do lunch.
