Lack of Imagination

CharlieRoseby Anniel11/3/15
Charlie Rose, a “newsman”, was apparently mystified when Marco Rubio called Hillary Clinton a liar concerning the information given out by the Obama Regime following the Benghazi attack. He simply did not get how her explanation could not be believed.

The behavior of the CNBC crew at the Republican Debate is on a par with Charlie’s mystification. They simply do not get why anyone would boo them or find their actions offensive.

Rush Limbaugh suggests that Charlie and other cloistered members of the MSM, as an active arm of the Democrat Party, need to get out of their protected enclaves to find out what the people of America are really like and what they think. Does anyone actually believe that Charlie or the others are even capable of doing such a thing?

I have a simple question: Do we “ordinary” Americans even exist as part of Charlie’s world?

Are we, as those ordinary Americans, simply invisible to the so-called elite, who obviously have no curiosity about us, nor any imaginative abilities to plumb our mysteries, assuming they have any inclination to do so?

Curiosity is a noun defined as a strong desire to know or learn something. When was the last time any of you thought the Washington elite, including your own Congressmen, or the media had any strong desire to know about or understand you or your life? Without curiosity how can they even imagine you?

Imagination is also a noun, defined as the faculty or action of forming new ideas or images or concepts of external images not present to the senses. Even if someone is “present to the senses”, that is standing in front of Charlie Rose, is he able to “imagine” them? Good grief, John Harwood, Becky Quick and Carl Quintanilla had the Republican Presidential candidates directly “present to their senses”, and showed no real curiosity about them. They failed utterly to “imagine” them.

The baffling thing about the members of the Regime and Charlie and his ilk is how they fail to see their own lack of vision. And so they build their own cages, their own prisons of ignorance. They apparently believe they will pay no price for their part in the destruction of the Country. It makes one wonder what Becky Quick will think when a burqa is dropped over her head, if she still has one.

That they are useful idiots in mortal danger from America’s enemies is just nonsense to their way of thinking. They close their eyes, ears and minds so completely that even Truth has no place in them.

They are people who have no curiosity or imaginative abilities left, so they cannot understand the cost they will pay for their perfidy.

Perhaps we, who are free men and women of ability and strength, can only offer them pity in their poisonous blinded prisons. • (1013 views)

    This is one of the remarkable things about liberals. They’re totally closed-minded and (almost always) intolerant of dissent, partly because of their cloistered groupthink. They have no curiosity about opposing views. Yet they genuinely seem to believe that they’re open-minded people searching out the truth and reporting it objectively. They literally have no capacity whatsoever for introspection.

    I think if Trump wins, there will be many people forced to leave this country. And it will not be just the Mexicans. Sort of like the Loyalists driven out after the American Revolution.

    I watched Charlie make a fool of himself, and it was precious.

    My contention is that the word “elite” is over-used and misapplied, a lot. If Rose and his ilk actually were so intelligent and had such unusually clear insight as to be held in esteem as intellectual elites, then we wouldn’t be having this conversation. He is a hack, albeit a monetarily successful one, and is popular with our largely uneducated viewers. An actual intellectual is created by true education, along with a bit of internal searching, a bit of luck with your placement on the bell curve, curiosity, and work. In short, being classified as an overlord is not synonymous with being elite.

    What we have here now is a suspension of the law of nature that is the survival of the fittest. A long time ago, a person that made mistakes concerning their survival were removed from the tribe. We have protected this type of person so long that we are surrounded by them. We all make mistakes. Most of which are small and are not life ending. But, certain mistakes are fatal. I fear that we are near a fatal mishap in the managing of our nation. Most of our leaders are corrupt as well as immoral. If you think I am speaking of Liberals or Democrats, you are right. If you think that I am not including Conservatives or Republicans, you are wrong. One party is just as deep as the other is wide. (For clarification, a Conservative is a different animal from a Republican.)

      I would amend that, Cynic, to say that civilization is man’s ability (with God’s help) to rise above the state of nature. We don’t want strict survival of the fittest. As Dennis Prager says, man is the only animal that creates hospitals. And I think that’s a good thing.

      Ensuring a certain level of security and opportunity is what a good civilization is all about. What defines conservatives is our clear realization that the line on what the person does for himself and what the state does for him has to be drawn as close to the person as possible.

      We understand that this necessitates people being able to learn from their mistakes. As much as the nanny state wants to put us all in a plastic bubble for our own protection, this is drawing the line way too far away from individual responsibility.

      I’m with you there in stating that most of our leaders are corrupt or immoral. The corruption can be subtle but very few (outside of Ted Cruz) are defending the American conception of liberty. And that conception includes no plastic bubbles. Nearly all of them, in one form or another, are ready and willing to sell America down the road for short-term political gain, personal enrichment, or for statist utopian goals.

        The total absence of security is anarchy in the sense of chaos, and no society can survive that (as Gil Robles pointed out). Indeed, totalitarians like to create chaos in order to encourage the citizenry to choose a police state to protect them from the chaos.

    Little shit Barry amused himself in front of an audience of clapping seals advancing stale jokes of the RNC Presidential candidates unable to withstand the CNBC onslaught.
    As he embarresed himself, he seems to have forgotten that DNC candidates continually run crying from any mention of FOX News hosting a debate.

    One: it was those CNBC clowns who got their asses kicked. Two: Little man Barry never learned the concept of “irony”. (He was too busy struggling to memorize “Opression Theory” by Franz Fenon.)
