The Moral Of The Wiener Story

Subtitle: Democrats’ Behaving Badly Reflects On Quality Of Government Solutions

Sorry for the light posting – again work is consuming all my waking hours. And in this abysmal economy it is imperative to keep your job – at a minimum. Let alone find a way to expand your work force by growing your business. In a flat economy, growth is only achieved by the marathon efforts. So my priorities are with my families (natural and company).

Watching Anthony Wiener implode, and take the Democrat Party with him, has been an interesting example of how Fate’s random events can conspire to turn the path of human history.

Anthony Wiener is human, with all the imperfections and self-absorbed obsessions that plague everyone. The major difference is those who indulge and those who exercise self control. Usually these two camps are separated by their selected priorities. The left, consumed by self indulgence that ranges from abortions to government handouts to demanding equal respect for debasing behavior, see the world as what can it provide them to do their thing. While their is a wide spectrum of behavior from the mild to the grotesque (pedophiles come to mind here) – the basic world view holds.

No controls, complete freebies, be supported to indulge one self without responsibility.

The conservative side tends to sacrifice for greater goods. This is why so many serve in the military – a social construct which frightens the daylights of those undisciplined lefties. This is where religion tends to take hold, family, community (both social and business). It is why most successful small businesses are run by selfless individuals who don’t mind being compensated for their efforts, as long as those efforts are desired and admired by their customers. I always thought educators missed their potential by competing for the respect of parents, instead of hiding behind the walls of mediocrity imposed by unions and bureaucracies. There are so many talented people who know how to inspire and teach children, and they are all bound by a broken system.

Again, there is a range here from those who deserve great honor to the despised. Killing and bombing in the cause of ‘life’ is one example of a reasonable and good trait gone bad.

In fact, if you look at the center of the electorate and society, there is a distinct mix of independence and responsibility, which merges and balances the two diverse trends. Only people who throw themselves to one side over the other cause issues and create chaos.

So what does this have to do about Wiener? Well Weiner is a classic liberal, self indulgent and believing rules (of behavior in this case) don’t apply to him. He is so off balance on the self indulgence he lied with practiced ease while blaming others for his own pathetic actions. He has gone down in history as another example of what not to do with your life and success. Sadly, many successful people have enormous amounts of time on their hands to discover ways to be this kind of example. Sadly, the sensational news media tends to bury the stories of quiet, brave success that are the norm in America.

The moral of the saga hit home when I watched a schizoid Democrat mouth piece on one of the evening shows start with sanity and end in the gutter. She started by admitting she was of two minds on the matter. She recognized the obvious discomfort of parents. Parents don’t want people in power using that power for self indulgence purposes, especially when that power comes from the people in a government leadership position. Even more so when the indulgence borders on the edge of sexual predator type behavior. Sending porn through email is just not something I want Congress doing to my daughters – I don’t care what the age. At this point she was making sense.

From this obvious and honorable perch, our Democrat operative pivoted to then admire Wiener. As a Democrat Party apparatchik, she felt his actions were minor and he did not need to pay any penalties. She was more worried his actions would undermine the fiction that only good emanates from the government – sullying the white knights fighting the private sector (i.e., the rest of the country).

And herein lies the problem for the Democrats. It seems we have been expecting the paragons of virtue and salvation in the government to be better than those evil corporate leaders. But they aren’t. Not only are they as greedy, corrupt and clearly distracted with personal indulgences which take priority over the needs of the nation, we cannot even object when they abuse their responsibility. Wiener says he did nothing wrong, which is laughable. He did so many things that were wrong it is mind boggling. But the protectors of the left’s flank claim it is wrong for us to require a standard of conduct. How conveniently confused.

But he did do one thing right – he tore apart the facade that government bureaucracies are run by wise saints, obsessed with doing for others. That is so laughable now, it is amazing the left has not seen how ridiculous their claims of bureaucrat solutions have become. Government is 80% incompetent. It wastes money by the mountain and produces failure. It experiments with societal balances (like who can responsibly own a home) and wipes out the savings of a generation. There are too few good jobs in America, and too many senior citizens working to stay afloat – all because liberals played God with home ownership (while lining their pockets with loan fees and bailouts). With their power over every aspect of society, the self absorbed and arrogant bureaucrat can do more damage than most private sector managers could ever do. Bernie Madoff was bad, but the left’s ponzi schemes like Medicare and Expanded Home Ownership destroyed millions of lives.

Wiener is the poster child for why Obamacare is going to destroy this nation’s healthcare. He is a leading voice in government run solutions. He is a leader in the government. He embodies the idea of government over the private sector. And look what he did with his time and energy. He was a sexual predator who destroyed his new marriage and clearly had little time for much else. He is mouthy and arrogant – not self sacrificing and able to produce a service or good of value.

The Democrat talking head also did us a favor. She showed us that she was willing to sacrifice her motherly concerns for the party’s power. She was willing to throw all of it away to help Anthony “the Package” stay in office. A choice almost no one else I would wager would be willing to make. Sorry, if it comes down to the health of my children, keeping them away from sex obsessed older men and women, or some pol’s job – the pol takes a hike into the dustbin of history.

We have seen not only the results of liberal policies run amok (deep and broad fiscal disaster, illegal wars, oppressive and intrusive government ‘authorities’), we have also seen their motivations. And these people are not saints – far from it. Neither are the people in the private sector evil incarnate.

These wildly exaggerated constructs from the left are what is required to sustain their delusion. They cannot be equals to the free market types – equally flawed, equally weak, equally morally handicapped. If this were true, then there is no reason to believe their world view, based on indulgence and handouts, is way better than hard work and sacrifice.

Because when you get down to it, that sounds like a bunch of immature nonsense. Only the idea that they sit at the right hand of goodness, and that corporations are equal to the Nazis, can over shadow such dribble. Which is why they continue to become unbalanced in their obsession with government running everything.

A truly eye opening and momentum changing epiphany – and the moral of the Wiener saga.

    Fate’s random events is sooooo WRONG. It is a wrong philosophy of history. My history professor in college hated the idea of fate or randomness. His favorite expression was history is when coincidence meets destiny. What you had is a man destined to fall who was waiting for the right coincidence to come to fruition. His 5 second mistake was all it took.

    I think the most absurd thing I heard a liberal talking head say was that Weiner didn’t need to resign because he was “not a proponent of family values” and that only proponents of family values that later showed this kind of behavior would need to resign because then they would be a “hypocrit”. Being a hypocrit was the real bad behavior according to her logic, not the bad behavior itself.

    We also know that there are good, honest, hardworking people who could represent us. Why do we have to settle for politicians (both parties, and all levels) who behave badly?

    The little wiener story is bad for the demsheviks, but it helped Obama to take the light off the abysmal news about the economy…

    Arnold Schwarzenegger thanks Weiner daily!

    btw, that idiot dem talking about “hypocrites” – what about the lying? Is she saying since everyone knows and expects Dem’s to lie constantly, no one should be surprised or upset when he is caught lying so outrageously?

    Nicely put. When one party or the other has an icon do what A. Weiner did the other side, naturally acts like sharks on a wounded dolphin. They circle (to see if it is really helpless/hurt), then they bump it (testing the strength/will), then when they see it is all alone or helpless, hurt/injured the feeding frenzy begins.

    No one really gives a rats behind that A. Weiner is showing his body parts off. If we did, collectively as a nation, there would be no such thing as porn, R-rated movies, (even some NC-17/PG-13), or a number of other things we gaff off as a-okay.

    What we care about, are you listening defenders of the Clinton era “define IS,” is that he lied about it. Yes, the lie. Lying is more than just not telling the truth. It is an insult to the people you lied to. It is an affront to the integrity and honor of all the people that supported, backed, and voted for (put in office, I.e. gave a job/employed) but most of all, it shows that this POS is compromised and cannot be trusted to tell the truth in tough situations. He would rather lie about something that means little to nothing (and he should know this by now) than tell the truth. So, what is he going to do when it REALLY matters?

    Thank you but no thanks A. Weiner and anyone that thinks this is nothing more than a white or little lie and he should not be punished. No, not only should he be punished for breaking his oath of office but for the humiliation of a nation. For unbecoming of an elected official. If a US Marine can be held on charges for the same, unbecoming of a Marine, (usually articles between 77 and 134 but more specifically 134 (unbecoming of a military officer… and yes, A. Weiner is considered an officer, he is after all in charge of his electorate), then A. Weiner, and any other member of Congress. elected governmental official that takes an oath of office and/or signs their name to a dotted line that has in fact codes of conduct as a part of their contract/job.

    If we hold our military officers and military to a code of conduct and can in fact and do send them to jail/prison or fire them/punish them for simply “unbecoming of that service/position” then A. Weiner should in fact be fired, removed from office, held in contempt, and disgraced and humiliated. Further more, he should NEVER be allowed in ANY elected governmental position, hold any government job, or receive government funds for any purpose, ever. Harsh? Yeah, it is. I loathe and despise leaders that think and treat us like garbage. I hold them to a much higher standard than the average private citizen, who… did not run for representative and leadership/control over another person life.

    Drum him out of office. Now. Right along with ANYONE like him. We would have a pretty empty Congress, but maybe, just maybe, that is EXACTLY what we need right now.
