The very funny Brian Carey at Downtrend has produced the definitive list of signs that You’re a Liberal who is Out of Touch with Reality.
We all know that liberals have decided that little things like facts don’t matter and that they seriously hate it when people say logical things… hmmmm… that pretty much sums them up. Anywho, enjoy Brian Carey’s great list.
1. You think that George W. Bush caused the recent recession
You’ve probably heard the narrative promoted by the wigglejaws on MSNBC: George W. Bush caused that terrible recession that we just experienced!
What, pray tell, did George W. Bush do to cause that recession? His signature economic legislation, including the Bush tax cuts, was passed in 2001. More tax cuts were passed in 2003. How did either of these laws cause a recession which began in 2007?
The fact is this: a bunch of banks made stupid real estate loans. The real estate market crashed, and everything went sour. George W. Bush had nothing to do with it.
2. You get your news from Jon Stewart
Jon Stewart is a funny guy. That’s the problem if you get your news from him. He’s a funny guy. He’s not a news anchor. He pretends to be one, of course, but that’s part of the act.
Maybe you should consider getting your news from a news source instead of a comedian.
3. You watch MSNBC
Maybe we should clarify the point that we just made above. If you give up watching Jon Stewart and switch to MSNBC, you’re basically just watching a 24-hour version of Jon Stewart without the comedy.
Watch a legitimate news source.
A black man is in the White House and Oprah Winfrey is a billionaire. Really, what are you worried about?
5. You think that raising taxes improves the economy
Some liberals sputter the following nonsense: “Bill Clinton raised taxes back in the 1990′s and look how good the economy was back then!”
It is true that Bill Clinton raised marginal tax rates, he was also a tax cutter. In fact, Bill Clinton cut taxes on the rich by eliminating the Luxury Tax. Bill Clinton cut the capital gains tax. Bill Clinton implemented welfare reform.
There are several reasons that the economy was great back in the 1990′s. Raising taxes wasn’t one of them.
6. You’re surprised that regulations on insurance companies are causing them to raise their premiums
If you’re an out-of-touch liberal, you probably think it’s pretty cool that ObamaCare mandates that insurance companies are required to cover “children” up to 26 years old.
It may surprise you to learn, however, that the additional coverage is actually going to cost insurance companies money. And how will they raise that money? They’ll raise premiums, of course.
Really. You didn’t see this coming?
