Fat, Broke and Single?

Like the French language, the liberal brain works in reverse. Where we say “the red book,” the French say “le livre rouge.” They start with a blank book and work backwards to fill it in with rouge. Liberals start with, “All men are created equal” and walk backwards from there without looking. If everyone isn’t succeeding equally, it can’t be because they made some bad decisions or have unequal abilities. It’s because we didn’t do enough.

If America is fat, it must be because nobody told them food is fattening. If women earn less than men, it must be because of sexism. If gays aren’t getting married, it must be because homophobes are cockblocking them. If the top ten mathematicians of all time are white males, it must be because nonwhite mathematicians with vaginas suffered discrimination.

These babies want to make us all as equal as the day we were born, even if it kills us.

“Like the French language, the liberal brain works in reverse.”

But despite their love of helping the average Joe, they’ve never met him. They don’t preach what they practice so they don’t know what goes on in the real world. The rest of us see women abandon math in college not because they’re discouraged or there’s a dearth of role models but because they tend to suck at it. IQ tests regularly show that although men are stupider than women, they’re smarter, too. A man’s bell curve is much wider than a woman’s, so although it dives far deeper into idiot, it also soars farther into brilliant. We have more dummies than them, but we have more geniuses, too.

Despite having so many geniuses, we still let gay marriage determine national elections even though the few gays that actually give a shit represent a tiny fraction of one percent of the population. And half of them get divorced! In northern Europe where this experiment has been going on for a long time, gays are finally asking themselves, “Wait, why are we doing this? We don’t have kids.” No one likes being told they can’t do something, but that doesn’t mean it’s something they want to do. Gay culture doesn’t fixate on commitment. Monogamy is not their bag. I’m not allowed in the ladies’ bathroom and I’m usually pretty cool with that. I’m not interested in what comes out of a woman when she’s in the bathroom, and gays aren’t interested in what comes out of a woman when she’s in the hospital.

Which is also why women earn less. They’d rather be with their kids. That’s right. Women earn less because they choose to earn less. This hatefact drives feminists nuts—or nuttier—but it’s perfectly logical. Picture a boardroom where the top brass realizes they’re going to have to stay there all night if they’re going to meet tomorrow’s budget deadline. Which gender is more likely to say, “Sorry, my daughter has a dance recital and there’s no way I’m going to miss it”? Women put family over work more often than men, which means they tend to get promoted less often. When women don’t have kids they actually make more than men. Those of us in the eyeball community see this every day. It’s common sense. If women were a cheap labor source they’d be hired in droves the same way illegal aliens are.

The liberal brain has clogged arteries. Do they honestly believe Americans are fat because the nutritional facts chart at McDonald’s wasn’t prominently displayed? Everyone knows a healthy sandwich costs less than a dollar, but liberals keep telling us poor kids are fat because they can’t afford to eat better. They’re fat because watching TV doesn’t burn calories.

First Book is a DC organization devoted to providing America’s poor with books they can afford. Have any of these people been to a used bookstore? There is almost always a bin at the back with $1 books. I’ve even seen boxes of free books when the store is overstocked. America is lousy with books. First Book tells us there are “tens of millions of poor Americans” who can’t afford to buy books, but in a country where TV ownership only very recently went down from 99%, I’m guessing they’re not exactly deprived.

We’re at a point where we can’t explain away failure. If you’re living in the freest country in the world in 2012 and you’re fat, broke, and single, it’s probably your fault.
