So I'm listening to left wing radio this morning, specifically the Stephanie Miller Show. I find her show particularly painful because it's basically her making fun of various right wingers and her 3 beta orbiting males that laugh at everything she says. It's not deep, it's not thoughtful, she really doesn't say anything original, and so I usually can only listen for about 15 seconds.
Being no different today than she was any other, she was making fun of conservatives, specifically Glenn Beck. The reason Glenn was the center of her ire was because Glenn came up with an ambitious plan called "Independence Park," a self-sustaining community for libertarians. Her and her beta orbiters were laughing suggesting there would be no stop lights, the theme park would have no safety and people would be flying off of roller coasters, and they were mocking the quality of proposed television programming Independence Park would have.
Is the plan out there?
Is it audacious?
Is it fringe enough that it should raise an eyebrow and draw some mockery?
I'll play devil's advocate and say "yes."
But I have a question:
What exactly has Stephanie Miller done?
Mock Glenn Beck all you want, the fact still remains he's trying something. And not only is he trying something, he's trying something that is revolutionary. If you look at history it is radical, out of the box thinking that has advanced men and society more than the close-minded lemmings ever could. Most of them don't succeed, but the ones that do bring an immense amount of progress to society. Most likely Independence Park will fail, and yes the left will immediately jump on it if it does, but to sit there when you've done nothing at all with your life but mock others is hypocritical. If Stephanie had, say, experience in real estate development or was on a city planning board, OK, fine, I could see that. But her criticisms would be constructive or informed, not the mere hollow childish mockery it is today. So until Stephanie and her 3 beta orbiters actually produce something unique and of value, all they will ever be are the radio trolls they are today.
However, I have another question.
What would be Stephanie's answer to Glenn Beck's "Independence Park?"
Thankfully she doesn't have to stress that little brain of hers creating a "leftist utopia" version of Independence Park, because it's already been done - government housing. Liberals can ridicule Independence Park all they want, but their leftist version is infinitely worse and has proven to be a failure. Cabrini Green, Ghetto's in the Sky, oh yeah, you leftists have a great track record of building cities and communities. Even if Independence Park fails, it will not fail anywhere near the level public housing projects have, and it has the added benefit of not costing the taxpayers a dime.
But hey, you lefties keep listening to Stephanie Miller. Maybe someday you can achieve the "greatness" she has and go down in history with a legacy like Air America!
