The thing that blows me away the most are when he tells stories about trying to renovate properties in CA or how bad the city harasses and fines the tax payers, but leaves the illegals and everyone else alone. Amazing.http://www.theblaze.com/stories/adam-carolla-the-government-fks-everything-up-they-touch/#comment-2842037
Sort of explains Obamao attempt to keep Boeing from leaving Washington state. As long as businesses are free to move, the only thing stupidity like this does, is drive them out of state. Wonder whats going to happen when California asks a Republican Congress to bail their bankrupt asses out?
You know, I've mentioned this before; but it really seems to me that Leftists suffer from a form of "magical thinking". It's as if reality, has no reality to them. Money isn't really something that has to be earned, but just appears "magically" in someone's wallet. Because it doesn't have to be earned, people who want to hold on to theirs are just "greedy". They take the same type of attitude toward business, it's as if the believe all businesses have a secret store of excess dollars which they're "greedily" hanging on to. And someone once found out that many environmentalists believe oil companies are holding on to some "secret" technology that would make oil outmoded. Is it possible they get that way from only talking and listening to each other?
I think you are correct, they do seem to feed on a lie that builds.Take the lie that the Tea party is racist, when we first heard it, we thought no one was that stupid, but this is proof they listen only to those of the same ilk and build on the original lie.
That and their belief in their own moral and intellectual superiority. So strong is that belief, that if you disagree with them you must be both intellectually inferior and morally corrupt. Wrong is strong enough. BTW name me a few places where people would be quite willing to lie, cheat and steal to get ahead. Hollyweird, academia and government bureaucracy come to mind. And if you get caught, they are far more likely to punish the whistle blower, than the one misbehaving. And where do they keep making films about, or issuing learned papers about, or government warnings about, people willing to lie, cheat and steal to get ahead. They think the entire world is that way, because their world IS that way.
