The Right Opinion

Answering Questions Nobody's Asking

By Burt Prelutsky · Dec. 3, 2012

I was hoping that as I got older, I would find things less confusing. Instead, the mysteries of modern life seem to be multiplying like rabbits.

For instance, why do so many movie lines that don't contain even a kernel of wit or wisdom seem to pass through society like a virus, leaving some of us with flu-like symptoms? Just a few of those that have enjoyed prolonged currency include: “Make my day” and “Do you feel lucky, punk?” Then there's “Show me the money,” “Life is like a box of chocolates,” “Hasta la vista, baby,” “I'll be back” and the omnipresent “You can't handle the truth!”

At least in the old days, when we got “I'm shocked…shocked” from “Casablanca,” “Nobody's perfect” from “Some Like it Hot” and “Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn” from “Gone With the Wind,” the source material tended to be first-rate movies.

Speaking of movies, I recently tried sitting through the latest Batman, “The Dark Knight Rises,” but could barely make it to the halfway mark. It raises the question once again why anyone would want to shoot action sequences in the dark. They spend a hundred million dollars producing this tripe and then turn it into an over-long radio show.

Something else that I have never understood is why super heroes required secret identities. It always seemed like a lot of unnecessary trouble. Why did Batman have to use Bruce Wayne as a front? And even sillier was Superman insisting on hiding behind the nerdy façade of Clark Kent and having to change his clothes in a telephone booth. The dude could fly, bullets bounced off his chest and he had X-ray vision. What was he afraid of? Autograph hounds?

Why do Obama and the flakier environmentalists oppose oil derricks, but promote windmills? Oil is not only a far better and more reliable source of energy than wind, but they don't massacre birds by the thousands. When there's an occasional oil spill and it gets goo on seagulls, these people become as crazed as the loons at PETA; but when windmills mutilate even protected classes of birds, such as eagles, you don't hear a peep out of them.

Many of us conservatives have sought an explanation as to why, even after four years of Obama's destructive policies and his insistence on governing by presidential fiat, Mitt Romney received two million fewer votes than John McCain. Recently, a friend of mine, Dr. Harry Maller, reminded me that in 2008, 17% of voters said they would never cast a ballot for a Mormon. Assuming that a lot of those religious bigots are Republicans, and that it's just possible that not all of the 15 million entitlement junkies Obama has added to the food stamp rolls are Democrats, the mystery might finally be solved.

Although liberals are loath to admit it, there are forms of bigotry that have nothing to do with race, nation of origin or sexual proclivities. I, personally, would prefer to believe that the two million Republicans who didn't bother voting this time around were just too lazy, not that they were the sort of narrow-minded pinheads who put their religious intolerance ahead of what's best for America.

Speaking of Obama, some two thousand years ago, Marcus Tullius Cicero wrote 76 words that might have been written yesterday: “Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and given him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the new wonderful good society which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean more money, more ease, more security, and more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.”

For a long time, I was also puzzled by the fact that so many liberals sided with Muslims, treating them with the sort of respect generally reserved for such sacred cows as urban blacks, illegal aliens and the New York Times editorial board. After all, these are people whose religion promotes intolerance in the extreme. Free speech, women's rights, gay rights, democracy, and even science and art, are all alien concepts everywhere in the Middle East except in Israel. In addition, these are the folks who have declared war on the West, and use any means available to terrorize those they regard as infidels, which not only includes all of us, but also their co-religionists if they happen to belong to a different sect.

Over the past three decades, except in a few isolated instances, every act of terrorism in the world can be traced to these barbarians. They fire thousands of rockets into Israel, hoping to kill civilians. They fly planes into our skyscrapers. What's more, calling them cutthroats isn't an insult, it's a job description.

In spite of all that, there are millions of liberals who stand ready to defend them in a way they would never have defended Nazis. Or conservatives, for that matter.

I could be wrong, but I have concluded that the only explanation for this bizarre alliance is that they share a blind hatred of Christians and Jews, and subscribe to the notion that the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

I, on the other hand, believe that the friend of my enemy is my enemy. Which should explain why I never tire of ridiculing liberals.

So, Burt, I just discovered www.burtprelutsky.com. The articles posted there seem to be different than the ones posted here on PP. My question, without having gone through the archive on your website, is, "How do you crank out so much good stuff?" I am thinking that perhaps you are really a consortium.

Gregory in Yakima Wa. said:

Burt...what are you doing? Your article sounds like a desperate confession and a plea for help, a crying out for comfort and understanding. Your questions are rhetorical but revealing. Your admission of wholesale astonishment is....well, I feel bad for you.

Here's something to help you understand the world you live in. Think on this possibility as you read these truths: It isn't the world that's crazy (well, it is a little bit sometimes), it's you. You're the problem in your understanding.

Barack Obama is a fundamentally decent man. He's a real Christian who loves his wife and children. He loves the United States too. Republicans aren't wrong about everything, it's just that they've become so strident that they turn people off. Come on, anti-science and throwing elderly out of nursing homes?

Movies like Batman are or can be simple entertainment. If you don't like a movie's premise don't go. Rent "It's A Wonderful Life" and watch it over and over instead. No need to trouble your already troubled mind with peeks at the dark side of human nature.

Liberals are mostly intolerant of intolerance, sometimes their zeal gets in the way...but they learn and keep trying to make the world a better more tolerant place just the same.

Muslims might have fewer intolerant types if their countries hadn't been invaded over and over again throughout history. Remember what happened when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor? There will be a lot on that subject (we didn't like it) in the next few days. Perhaps you can do some research and report back on interesting details.

You will have a hard time convincing us that Obama is "a real Christian" when he told us in his book "The Audacity of Hope, p 261) that he would “stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

Obama is fundamentally a decent man?! Really?! You need to put down the crack pipe and back away slowly. I think you are the one who's mentally deficient and Burt has the mental clarity and acuity to call it like it is. Its called truth, you need a whole heaping helping of it.

By the way, B. O. is a closet Muslim who's trying his level best to destroy this great nation, and to promote a religion that is one of the most brutal and tyrannical religions ever created by mankind. Keep wandering down the path you're on, I just want to be there to hear what is said when the Supreme Judge of the world passes sentence on you.

For example, the intolerant of intolerance Ralph Nader, an uber-liberal of the highest order, recently called Obama "a greater war criminal than George W. Bush" for his use of drones for targeted assassinations. Hardly an endorsement. As for the anti-science moniker, ask a liberal when science says human conception begins. Or what economic science says happens when you continually spend more than you receive.

JR in Mountain Grove said:

You choose to believe voters were lazy, rather than pinheads. I choose to believe Romney lost due to the counting, not the voting. It's easy for people on both sides of the isle to say, "I will never," as easy as saying, "How are you?" when how one is, is of no interest to the questioner, and for many saying, "I love you" rolls off the tongue like hot grease on porcelain, with no connection to honest feeling.

Admitedly, we're old timers, with a relatively small circle of friends and acquaintances, but we know few of any religion,creed, race, or sex, who voted for Obama. Furthermore, is it not true that in rural regions where everybody knows and watches everybody, Romney won. Whereas, in cities, where it was much easier to cheat, Obama won?

Monday, December 3, 2012 at 10:16 AM

Burt Prelutsky in North Hills, CA replied:

JR: I believe you are confusing cause and effect. There is a huge discrepancy between the way people voted in big cities and in rural communities, even here in California. But that's because those who live in the outlying areas tend to be far more religious, more self-reliant and more likely to support the 2nd Amendment, than those who live in the major cities along the Pacific coast.

Burt

Monday, December 3, 2012 at 12:21 PM

JR in Mountain Grove replied:

Burt, you'll defiinitely get no argument from me on the attributes you "tend" to grant to rural American people. However, the truth of that in no proves that the outcome of the election was not caused by corrupt counting in major cities, as well as by progressives, living and dead, citizen and non, voting more than once. The only attribute those without scruples can be counted upon to religiously display is no scruples.

billy396 in ohio replied:

I'm one of you old-timers, and I do have a very small circle of friends and family. However, I happen to work at the largest employer of private-sector union members in the country. That puts me in the position of being constantly surrounded by otherwise seemingly intelligent, seemingly rational people who nevertheless walk around like robot zombies when the topic of politics comes up. No matter how many easily proven objecive facts and numerous documented lies that I present to them concerning Barry Obozo, they continue to support him 100%, I guess because they think that he's such a champion of unions that he would never endanger OUR health care. The opposite is true, of course. My company as well as the majority of large corporations that can't get waivers will, in fact, cease to offer an employer-provided health care option, because the "fine" for not providing health care was purposefully set far, far lower than the cost of said health care. Obamacare will destroy my access to health care, and unless it includes a fantastic prescription drug plan, it will cause me to lose my house in order to pay for my many expensive prescriptions that I can't do without. I have read the bill, and I have studied our Constitution. NOTHING in our Constitution gives the federal government the right to force a government-run health care system on American citizens. The Supreme Court has become merely another in a long line of activist courts filled with judges who don't care one bit about the Constitution of their sworn oaths, just about what they "feel" concerning any particular case.

Have you ever wondered how Clark Kent retrieved all his suits out of the phone booths or how the Lone Ranger ever made a living? He never had a job.
Oh I know. It's the same fairy tale that the liberals ask us to believe that prosperity and freedom comes from the government. All we have to do is to turn our lives over to the government and we will all live happily ever after. Wait, I just saw the Easter Bunny go by my door. I don't know if the Bunny was early for next year or late from this year. I hope my dog didn't see He, She or It. Some people can't tell male from female and insist there is no difference. There may not be any difference to some but I definitely know the difference. The plumbing doesn't match.
I guess Gregory will call me a right wing extremist. I make my own living,own my own home and my neighbors are not afraid of me. I help others regularly when the need is presented, I leave all others alone. Nobody locks anything up because they don't trust me. I do own a gun(guns) Nobody bothers my wife, my family or my dog. Nobody.

You definetely are in their sights because you work and are proud of it. Many of us are like you and that makes the left crazy because we don't believe the government is the answer to everything. It's been proven time after time that Republicans are way more generous in giving to charity but we also don't believe in supporting parasites who live off the work of others.

As a Christian I am not free to pick and choose what Christ taught. When the Holy Bible says that homosexuality is an abomination then it is an abomination. It also says that those who don't work don't eat. It's a sin to reward laziness. Redistribution of wealth is also the sin of covetousness. As a citizen of the United States of America, I go by the constitution and expect to be governed by it. I have a bill of Rights that limits what the government can do to me. When these two documents are violated I am not the guilty one and I am not a criminal. Those who ignore these wonderful documents are the criminals and should, (will eventually) be treated as such hopefully at the polls next election..

L.L.: Darn right I've thought about Clark Kent's clothes. I've also wondered why he didn't look like a hunchback with that cape tucked under his shirt. Not only did he leave his clothes strewn around in phone booth, but his handkerchief, keys and wallet. Nowhere to carry them in his Superman costume. But maybe part of the reason I've had time to consider such important matters is because I no longer waste my time reading Gregory's inane comments.

just seen him 30 seconds earlier.

I have never, ever, been accused of holding back. It has been unfortunate at times, because thinned skinned individuals take undue offense. I had to attend an anger management class, because I yelled at some idiots who had overextended their authority in barracading a building. I was ulitmately exhonorated when the CEO returned from a trip, and reprimanded the politically correct morons who punished me for standing up for the rest of the organization. If Gregory, or his ilk, ever get in my way, they will be severly educated in anti political correctness!
