Lars Larson on The Party of Can’t

Have the Democrats become the party of “can’t”?

Sitting at the Republican Convention in St. Paul, it struck me. The Democrats have become the party of “you can’t”. As in, “we’re going to protest in the streets to interfere as much as possible because you can’t be allowed to elect another president.”

You can’t name a woman with children as a vice-presidential choice. A woman who has only run a city and the largest state in America can’t possibly be the second in command of America.

You can’t drill for oil. You can’t liberate a country. You can’t take down a lethal dictator. You can’t win a war. You can’t succeed with a surge strategy.

We’ll let me answer with a few “can’ts” of my own. You can’t refuse to supply the oil that America needs to survive. You can’t spend all those lives and blood in Iraq and then surrender when you are winning. You say you believe in women’s rights, so you can’t stop a woman who believes in family, state, her abilities and herself.

And after watching a FOX News reporter interviewing a bunch of you this morning, you can’t even identify the pictures of America’s political leaders””even the ones in your own party.

    You can’t say those nasty things about such a great party with such great ideas and great intentions and such great, great leaders like Barack and Joe.

    How dare you!

    Oh yes we can!

    Especially since there are no “great results” to go with all those “great ideas” and “great intentions”……

    lars hung up on me once while I countered one of his “survalence is ok tyrades”, where he kept siting past allowances of survalence as justification for new ones. he then kept telling callers there would be no snowball effect. he hung up on me (though the brodcast cut me artfully at a sentence conclusion) when I pointed out that by siting past intrusions as the basis for new ones, he was proving the snowball effect.

    as to the “war”. the only things going up in Afgahnistan are poppies and a long sought after pipeline. the only ministry building protected in Iraq was that of OIL. the war hit just as Sadam was about to quit trading in US dollars. we assisted Sadam with logistics against the Kurds and then looked away. we have trained death squads in our School of the Americas. we were on the ground while denying it during the coup in Venezuala as was proven by the American documentary filmakers who were present in Presidental home at the time of the coup. calls entered the home from military personel describing US planes landing to take the president….these calls ended the coup as it ended the US involvement…the source of the coup.

    unlike in mining leases. oil companies are not using the leases with proven oil already. they are allowed, unlike in mining, to sit on leases and never use them. some say they have no oil in these area, but why do they keeps renewing them?

    our country started out with many caveats to protect us of corporations and those of great wealth and ruthless power. but from popes to presidents throughout history, here we are again. every action of our president has siphoned money unproductively from the taxpayer into greedy fat hands. Lars complains about taxes…..when are we planning to pay for all this stuff anyway?
