Well, have it bronzed and present it to Obama. Like a skinny, big-eared Idi Amin, he needs another Award...........

I'll offer several theories:

First, to be a Leftist, one must be an adolescent. When you expect Daddy to take care of you (Big Gov) while simultaneously b!tching about what a ba$tard he is, you're an adolescent. When you toss your garbage on the ground at your protests and concerts (while those evil teabaggers clean up after themselves), expecting somebody else to pick up your mess, you're an adolescent. When you scream about your rights but other people's responsibilities to you, you're an adolescent. When you make up lies about people you don't like and use them to spread rumors (see the wholesale fabrication of Rush Limbaugh "quotes" that "prove" he's a racist who shouldn't own a football team), you're an adolescent. And when some grown-up says, "You can't have that", your only response - because adolescents cannot reasonably argue - is to stamp your foot and say "I hate you I hate you I hate you!"

Second, their simplistic, Manichean, "I'm good, you oppose me, therefore you must be evil" worldview. "I'm a good person who thinks racism is wrong, therefore, my opponent must be an evil racist."

Third, for the minority of Lefties who aren't juvenile or simple-minded, there's calculating strategy. Alinsky's Rule for Radicals #12: "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it."

Fourth, don't forget the Two Minutes' Hate from 1984. Look back on this century's history. From the German National Socialists to the Khmer Rouge, violent and murderous hatred is simply organic to Leftist political thought. Since they are Good and their opponents are Evil (see #2), any destruction of their opponents is morally justified.

I can see that you've spent some time on a University campus. I did my engineering school with the first two years at a community college and then the upper class in a program for working students. So I missed all the interaction with the youngsters whose parents are paying all their bills while they protest the very capitalist system that allows them to be a total drain on society. And you don't see those self-important clowns in the engineering school anyhow. It has always amused me to see people who are in their 20s and have never worked a day in their lives bytch at the people whose nickels they are living on.

Then they graduate... and they stride out to "fix the world"... the best and the brightest.... and are never heard from again except to say, "Would you like fries with that?"
