A day in the life of Joe Virginia Republican

Joe gets up at 6 a.m. and fills his coffeepot with water to prepare his morning coffee. The water is clean and good because some tree-hugging liberal fought for minimum water-quality standards. With his first swallow of coffee, he takes his daily medication. His medications are safe to take because some stupid commie liberal fought to insure their safety and that they work as advertised. All but $10 of his medications are paid for by his employer’s medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance – now Joe gets it too. He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs. Joe’s bacon is safe to eat
because some girly-man liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry. In the morning shower, Joe reaches for his shampoo.His bottle is properly labeled with each ingredient and its amount in the total contents because some crybaby liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and how much it contained. Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath.The air he breathes is clean because some environmentalist wacko liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting his air. He walks to the subway station for his government-subsidized ride to work: It saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees because some fancy-pants liberal fought for affordable public transportation,which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor. Joe begins his work day. He has a good job with excellent pay, medical benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some lazy liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Joe’s employer pays these standards because Joe’s employer doesn’t want his employees to call the union. > If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed,he’ll get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some stupid liberal didn’t think he should lose his home because of his temporary misfortune. It’s noontime and Joe needs to make a bank deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe’s deposit is federally insured by the FDIC > because some godless liberal wanted to protect Joe’s money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the Great Depression. Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae-underwritten mortgage and his below-market federal student loan because some elitist liberal decided that Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his lifetime. Joe is home from work. He plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive. His car is among the safest in the world because some America-hating liberal fought for car safety standards.He arrives at his boyhood home. His was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers’ Home Administration because bankers didn’t want to make rural loans. The house didn’t have electricity until some big-government liberal stuck his nose where it didn’t belong and demanded rural electrification. He is happy to see his father, who is now retired. His father lives on Social Security and a union pension because some wine-drinking, cheese-eating liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe wouldn’t have to. Joe gets back in his car for the ride home, and turns on a radio talk show. The radio host keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. He doesn’t mention that the beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day.Joe agrees: “We don’t need those big-government liberals ruining our lives!” Joe says out loud to himself. “After all, I’m a self-made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have.” (Thanks to Margie Clark)

  1. I think I first saw that tale five years ago or more. It’s been around the internet a time or two.

    And still relevant, I’m sure you’d say. ๐Ÿ™‚

    JB is right. It’s old hat.

    I thought it was excellent. Thank You Barnie. Sisson didn’t say anything nice because he spouts off like the GOP radio host you site. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Phil: Nice comment!

    To the unrelenting Democratic crusader & non-conqueror extraordinaire of the 41st House district:

    “If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.” ~ William Blake (1757-1827)

    The ‘Joe Republican’ old history — that’s all I said.

    There’s no need to dredge up old history… Is there?

    Before you begin yet another crusade and vendetta against a fellow Democrat, please get your own house in order.

    Nuff said.

    Those who don’t learn from history are destined to repeat it…

    Thank you Barnie Day for providing a voice of common sense and historical perspective, and most important… The Truth.

    Rodokankis and Sisson have been studying hard to learn effective technique of pursuasion:

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.””

    The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over”

    Joseph Goebbels, German Minister of Propaganda, 1933-1945

    “not Phil or Steven,” I think your implicit comparison of BR posters to Goebbels is way out of line.

    Are you that desperate to demonstrate your alliance with a hackneyed old essay that you have to resort to the worst kind of attack, accusing people of being Nazi-like?

    So, Will..Goebbels is out of line, but Phil’s Stalin is okay?

    Barnie, I’m wasn’t crazy about the Stalin reference, but Phil’s comment didn’t, in my reading, accuse you or the author of being Stalinists.

    I hereby denounce both comments.

    When our posters and Virginia politicans start rounding citizens up and sending them to die in concentration camps and gulags, then commenters are free to compare them to Stalin and Goebbels.

    Sorry I demonstrated an inconsistency. Are you ok with such comparisons, Barnie?

    Lord, no! Denounce ’em with you! Isn’t it wonderful, though, to live in a country where they can say it–and we can denounce them? We owe those Memorial Day boys for that.

    Judge the tree by the fruit it bears.

    I’ll make it clearer Will:

    I’m not saying that I think that these two are Nazi…

    I’m saying that they have learned well the lesson in manipulating the masses espoused by Goebbels.

    And by the way Will, I like what you write, don’t always agree but you certainly think about things and it shows.

    Go over to Augusta Free Press and read the 13,000+ words that Mr. Sisson has penned (typed)regarding illegal immigration.

    Then think about what kind of fruit is being born by some of the trees we’re hearing from…

    One more thing, is Mr. Phil now saying that all of the accomplishments that our society has made as illustraited by the story Barnie shares were the wrong thing to have done?

    I’ll make you a deal.

    Let’s everyone start talking about what problems need to be fixed, and about IDEAS to fix them.

    Let’s stop the 1950s era practice of calling everything we disagree with “communist” or “socialist” and I’ll gladly stop pointing out what is taking place.

    Of course, if they stop it, there will be nothing to point out…

    We live with the greatest governmental system ever devised.
    That same system has been under relentless assault for several decades by people who attack every aspect from trial by jury to checks and balance to who has authority over what and on and on and on… They attack the police, they attack the schools, with the dual goal of eroding people’s confidence in representative democracy, and to make people so fearful and confused that they feel a great need to be protected… From the American governmental system…

    We don’t need to change our government, we need to change some people. We don’t need better politicians, we need better leaders and representatives.

    I’ll make it clearer Will:

    I’m not saying that I think that these two are Nazi…

    I’m saying that they have learned well the lesson in manipulating the masses espoused by Goebbels.

    And by the way Will, I like what you write, don’t always agree but you certainly think about things and it shows.

    Go over to Augusta Free Press and read the 13,000+ words that Mr. Sisson has penned (typed)regarding illegal immigration.

    Then think about what kind of fruit is being born by some of the trees we’re hearing from…

    One more thing, is Mr. Phil now saying that all of the accomplishments that our society has made as illustraited by the story Barnie shares were the wrong thing to have done?

    I’ll make you a deal.

    Let’s everyone start talking about what problems need to be fixed, and about IDEAS to fix them.

    Let’s stop the 1950s era practice of calling everything we disagree with “communist” or “socialist” and I’ll gladly stop pointing out what is taking place.

    Of course, if they stop it, there will be nothing to point out…

    We live with the greatest governmental system ever devised.
    That same system has been under relentless assault for several decades by people who attack every aspect from trial by jury to checks and balance to who has authority over what and on and on and on… They attack the police, they attack the schools, with the dual goal of eroding people’s confidence in representative democracy, and to make people so fearful and confused that they feel a great need to be protected… From the American governmental system…

    We don’t need to change our government, we need to change some people. We don’t need better politicians, we need better leaders and representatives.

    Judge the tree by the fruit it bears.

    I’ll make it clearer Will:

    I’m not saying that I think that these two are Nazi…

    I’m saying that they have learned well the lesson in manipulating the masses espoused by Goebbels.

    And by the way Will, I like what you write, don’t always agree but you certainly think about things and it shows.

    Go over to Augusta Free Press and read the 13,000+ words that Mr. Sisson has penned (typed)regarding illegal immigration.

    Then think about what kind of fruit is being born by some of the trees we’re hearing from…

    One more thing, is Mr. Phil now saying that all of the accomplishments that our society has made as illustraited by the story Barnie shares were the wrong thing to have done?

    I’ll make you a deal.

    Let’s everyone start talking about what problems need to be fixed, and about IDEAS to fix them.

    Let’s stop the 1950s era practice of calling everything we disagree with “communist” or “socialist” and I’ll gladly stop pointing out what is taking place.

    Of course, if they stop it, there will be nothing to point out…

    We live with the greatest governmental system ever devised.
    That same system has been under relentless assault for several decades by people who attack every aspect from trial by jury to checks and balance to who has authority over what and on and on and on… They attack the police, they attack the schools, with the dual goal of eroding people’s confidence in representative democracy, and to make people so fearful and confused that they feel a great need to be protected… From the American governmental system…

    We don’t need to change our government, we need to change some people. We don’t need better politicians, we need better leaders and representatives.

    First, because censorship of the press and curtailing an individual’s right of their freedom of expression is your ultimate aim, I doubt that will happen. We reside in a Democracy.

    Second, lets make a deal not to use ‘not phil or steven’ but your ‘Christian’ name before you quoting the Holy Book again. Remember, I’m not the person you’ll need answer to one day.

    Have a nice day!

    The above comment by Steven illustrates well what I mention elsewhere on this site. Some of the postings and articles that he attributes to himself cannot have been written by him.

    Too literate.

    The inconsistent quality of the word crafting and thought process is too great in disparity for any other conclusion.

    Mr. Bacon,

    I do wish to let you know that my intention is not to disparage anyone on a personal level, but to deal with what they write as per your admonishion:

    “We have managed, so far, to avoid posting elaborate rules for participating in this blog. We simply urge contributors and commenters to maintain a collegial atmosphere. Direct all the fire and fury you want at another person’s argument, but do not engage in ad hominem attacks. The publisher reserves the right to delete any comments that violate this basic rule.”

    “Not Phil or Steven:” I’ve been purposefully avoiding answering your posts, even though your pseudonym is flattering to me in its own way.

    However, I don’t appreciate your trying to put words in my mouth. Where do you get the gull to say that “they” (I’m presumably included in this group) attack the police and the schools? I’m a retired federal law enforcement officer who has the utmost respect for the men and women that put their life on the line to protect us from harm.

    As to the schools, I also have the utmost respect for teachers. But I detest the NEA and it’s liberal politicization of our schools and their curriculums. So are we now supposed to look the other way and pretend that the emperor is wearing clothes, when in-fact our education system is failing our kids?

    In the future, I would appreciate if you stuck to the facts and didn’t put words in my mouth. You really should be barking up some other tree…

    Barnie: Unlike the Gobbles comment that was squarely aimed at Steven and me, my Stalin comment was not directed to you. It was a general reference to the story you posted.

    What’s the matter? Don’t you like it when people point out that the great utopian dream your side continues to advocate would have made the founders of Leninism proud?

    On the contrary, Phil, I do like it. Relatively speaking, we do live in utopia. Just being born in this country is like winning the lottery. Don’t you think?

    You fellows need to give the Goebbles, Stalin and Lenin thing a rest.

    Barnie: I absolutely agree. I wasn’t born here, but have lived in this coutnry for some 35 years now. I served in the Army and then the Foreign Service where I saw first hand how lucky we are to be Americans.

    But all luck aside, if your side continues with its leftist socialist drift, I’m afraid it won’t be long before we become another banana republic.
