Lone Survivor beats all box office predictions in impressive opening weekend

Lone Survivor, the film adaption of former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell’s bestselling book of the same name, had a historical weekend at the box office.

“If you haven’t seen Lone Survivor, you need to,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Second biggest opening in January of any movie. They were surprised by it… They thought it was going to be $14 million. It was $38 million. This thing is going to make well over $100 million and then some.”

Lone Survivor finished the weekend as the number one movie in America bringing in $38.5 million. It bested Disney’s Frozen, which came in at number two, earning $15 million in its eighth weekend, and Paramount’s The Wolf of Wall Street earning $9 million in its third weekend. The opening weekend marked the second biggest January opening ever after the $40.1 million debut of 2008′s Cloverfield.

One Texas town had such an overwhelming response to the film, the Grand Theater in Conroe, Texas cancelled showings of several box office hits to accommodate massive demand for Lone Survivor. Cancelled movies at the 14-screen multiplex included blockbusters like Wolf of Wall Street and Anchorman 2 among multiple other films.

“As you will see, the most honorable thing a friend can do for his brothers, Marcus Luttrell has done and told this story and made it appropriate for their death. And you will be amazed at the honor of these men. Truly amazed and humbled,” Glenn concluded. “If you don’t walk out of there going, ‘What am I doing with my life?’ ‘What is important to me?’ If you don’t walk out of that movie theater feeling that, I don’t know, you need to watch it again or check yourself into a hospital to see if you have a heart or a soul.”

    Saw the movie this past weekend. Our people need to gain something from this sort of presentation, other than, America has brave men and women who place their lives on the line every single day, don’t get me wrong, we need these people, but should we allow this to ever happen again. If we don’t change our middle east strategy it will. This movie should serve as a platform for debate. After all, what is our mission in the middle east other than to stop terrorism dead in its tracks. Is Afghanistan the primary target, or should we get serious with ourselves and face reality. We all know who’s funding and sponsoring terrorism, Afghanistan is primarily a training ground for those who are hell-bent on destroying the west.

    By now, the whole world knows it is the Iranians who are behind the majority of sponsored terrorism. It is predominantly based on and fueled by their religion, but yet, they go unscathed and are now in the process of developing their own atomic bomb(s) – when complete – they have sworn an oath to Alla, that they will wipe Israel off the map. What don’t we understand about that. Are we so naive as to think they are bluffing….isn’t that what the world thought about Adolph Hitler after openly warned…and well in advance…of his world encompassing ideas. It wasn’t until he made good on that threat, did the world believe him. Are we willing to take that chance in today’s chaotic nuclear world. After watching the film and seeing for myself the hatred the Islamic world has for the west – mainly, America and Israel – what comes to mind, is our time is running out.

    If this motion picture is not enough to get America thinking about its position in the world and what is our mission…I don’t know what would.

    First you see the movie and are just blown away by what these guys go thru, and how their hands are tied to being responsible for their own safety. THEN you see CNN interview with the Lone Survivor and you have to say: “What the hell is with the media still talkin’ smack about people dying. Yeah, It’s war you morons-our enemies, and civilians are going to sometimes be casualties of war. Do these stupid Liberals think that if the terrorists were HERE on US soil, that they’d give a damn about that? Anyway, I liked Mark’s responses very much. Wahlberg just sat there. I don’t know what he was thinking, or what I should think of that, but oh well. He knows his Liberal Hollywood buddies are where his bread is buttered.

    Valor and freedom are wonderful companions. I’m pleased with the film’s success. I loved it and then read a couple of disparaging or luke warm reviews that were annoying (one on Page Six of the usually good NY Post.) It’s good to be vindicated. I’m also glad Hollywood was surprised. The tampered with, politicized, and inglorious Zero Dark Thirty — a well made but weakly conceived film trying to serve too many masters — probably made Hollywood think, “America doesn’t want war films.” No, not true. America wants great films that ennoble and exalt the highest values. PS. It’s significant that the film is from a book and a true story. Otherwise the contagious hands of Hollywood executives would have “improved” it into an ambiguous myth of discouragement and confusion.

    It’s a fantastic movie and appropriate for several demographics. ( Far more than most war movies.) You see what these guys went thru and you see how our Govt. ties the hands of our soldiers who need to be responsible for their own safety and their fellow soldiers’ safety. It makes a very hard job, nearly impossible and that’s if you’re lucky.

    As I walking to my bed late last Thursday night after seeing an 8PM showing of this movie. I, out of the blue and I don’t know why, thought of our Civil War and all of the fallen soldiers, all Americans, on our very soil. I thought of the concussiveness of war, of my great uncle who died in WW! from the explosions of the bombs, with no external wounds at all and that he lies way over in France. I awoke the next day to noise in my mind, the space of the shooting and the falling, the air and debris around the warriors. I awoke to the word “Warrior.” These were and are warriors. Mark Wahlburg and his fellow actors so expressed the intensity, the gentleness (yes, the gentleness), and the humanness of it all. My thoughts moved on to Benghazi and the shame of it and of never, ever leaving our treasure behind and always coming to their rescue, of our nation always having to be prepared to rush in. I thought of war is what it is. It is horrible and that our soldiers are extremely brave and very human and very good. That is what filled my hours after the movie.

    This as an awesome move about the bravery of the American soldier! Not only bravery but the heart and soul of brave American soldiers unlike Muslim extremists. I do believe we need to get out of the Middle East except for if our true alias Israel need our help.

  • Eric Bischoff

    Oh please wake up how could anyone be so clueless. Change your news sources, read some books, watch some documentaries, educate yourselves, stop watching and believing Fox and the MSMs

    The Saudis are behind funding terrorism. They funded the 19 Saudi high jackers of 9/11. The US created, funded and armed Osama Bin Ladden and Al Qaeda and then turned on them. It’s called blowback. They are doing it again in Syria.

    And now Israel, the apartheid regime which we wholeheartedly fund at the tune of $3Billion a year, is now in bed with the Saudis. What’s wrong with that picture?

    This is all about controlling the oil as we run out of it by controlling the gulf region.

    Even on Hitler you still don’t get it. The treaty of Versailles which is a US British and French creation is responsible for Hitler coming to power. Meanwhile American corporations and Wall Street bankers worked with, profited from and funded Hitler. Prescott Bush was forced by govt to stop funding Hitler.

    Considering the fact that we’ve been in bed with almost all of the Middle East Dictators and that we’ve overthrown many democratically elected Middle East leaders it’s amazing to me that they are not more up in arms over our despicable activities.

    They don’t hate us for our freedom you morons, they hate us because we’ve meddled, coveted, invaded, bombed, murdered and continue to occupy the Middle East.

  • Jeffrey Kaufman

    Not only is Iran funding terrorism on a massive scale, but Sharia banking is one of its tools. Since sharia law forbids giving interest, but banking depends on it, the work around is to “purify” those funds. They can then be returned as if it were interest. The way Iran’s Islamic banking and other sharia banking institutions purify
    interest is to use it for “charity” for “zakat”. There are a number of ways this zakat may be used and still qualify, unfortunately, one way is to support the soldiers of Islam in jihad.

    That means that while our country now supports sharia banking, we’re supporting a system which funds the same terrorists who pledge to kill our own soldiers. like those Marcus and his team faced.

    Did you know that the White House now has staff facilitating the growth of sharia banking in the US? Samar Ali was appointed by the President in June 2010 as
    “Shariah-Compliant Finance Advisor to the White House, a “White House Fellow”.

    Is sharia compliant banking big? We’re talking billions, with a “B”, and growing !.

  • Eric Bischoff

    I guess you’ve never heard of us overthrowing the democratically elected Iranian president Mossadeqh in the 50′s. Oh and BP was the tail wagging the dog then too.

    Meanwhile Reagan immediately started attacking Lybia. He had it in for the beloved dictator Qaddafi whose crime, like Mossadeqh, was to nationalize the oil for their people. You know like in Alaska people get paid for their oil resources. How dare the Middle East people think their deserved royalties like that.

    Reagan should have been arrested for treason for his treasonous back room deals with the Iranians so that the hostages would not be released before the election and thus giving Carter an edge.

    Your picture is incomplete. Not only do they hate the USA because of what our “leadership” does to them, (I don’t do anything to them at all, so I do not include myself in your quote “we”.) they also hate us because of their religion, -because our freedoms threaten their very-most basic beliefs. They cringe at allowing our women to drive, to walk about without a black tent covering them head to toe, etc, etc. It is a multifaceted hatred, and your jerk attitude, sprinkled with an amazing dose of hatred in itself, is clearly indicative of another of the USA’s problems. In fact, considering your personal insults to Zerogon, I would presume to assume you are either a democrat or a progressive liberal. They tend to behave in that reprehensible manner. Why align yourself with rude jerks? Does it help you feel elevated? -To where? Are you not capable of speaking, however indirectly, to a fellow countryman with a little respect? Yes, we have “leadership” that is not competent to lead anyone anywhere except to the city dump or to the mafia, maybe to the south american drug lords, but how will YOU fix that? What is YOUR plan?

  • bumpkin

    Totally agree with you. Being cursed at in my own living-room or in a paid-for movie theater is not my idea of entertainment, either. I cannot help but share with you my prediction, however: They will NOT remove the cursing from the movie, since most Americans now curse BECAUSE of the ‘in-your-face- examples continually set by Hollywood. There is not a evening that goes by if I am trying to watch TV (more and more rare because of the filthy language) that I don’t have to change the channel several times in the middle of a program because of their filth. I have a special needs adult son and I have beautiful grandchildren that I do not think would be enhanced in even the tiniest bit by their picking up filthy language. Moreover, I simply don’t like to hear it. It wholly detracts from the beautiful English language and the skills of the speaker if they are given to gutter talk. It is certainly one major part of the dumbing-down of America that I refuse to embrace.

    It all depends what novels you read and believe. There are many “experts” on foreign policies, but, unfortunately, they don’t look right in front of their noses and see how their homland is falling apart. One could easily blame the years of the cold war on many of today’s problems. One can blame the USA for helping poor countries grow, only to have them turn on the hand that fed them. I could also write books on the subject and could convince many people to believe it all.

    By this date in American history, if any fool thinks he can debate with the Muslim World, has to be out of his mind…the debate Americans should be engaged in is – do we continue “as is” in Middle East affairs – or – “do we get serious and finish the job we started and finally put an end to violent terror sponsored by the Iranian Regime?” We must meet the snake head on and eliminate the source of terror.

    You realize that you are talking about our best friends, Saudi Arabia, the most oppressive of all in that region.

    The women in Iraq, before we destroyed that country could drive had jobs went to school and did not have to cover up.

    The more we meddle, the more they get repressed by their own right extremist wackos.

    Come to think of it the right conservative extremists in this country should be called the American Taliban. They also want to control and oppress women.

    As long as you pay taxes that are used to build empire you are responsible.

    My plan is to vote independent progressive left which is for peace, education, medicare for all, higher paying jobs, alternative renewable clean energies and controlling the banksters. My plan is campaign finance reform. My plan is Corporations are not people and Humans genes are not patentable. My plan is people and the environment before corporations and profits. No more wars, bring all the troops home. Dismantle the empire and apologize to the world. Greed needs to go. We’ve made a lot of mistakes and gone down the wrong paths. But it’s not too late to have a better vision.

    Your memory seems a bit selective, Eric. Reagan went after Lybia in retaliation for a terrorist bombing of a W Berlin nightclub frequented by US servicemen causing 1 serviceman’s death as well as a civilian death. 230 others were injured. This was in April of 1986. Prior to that Qaddafi had openly supported the Red Army Faction and the Red Brigades.

    I hope that this movies success will help Luttrell find peace and serve as a validation that he did not leave the memory of his fallen brothers on that mountain. Mr. Luttrell should be proud of the standard of love, honor, and duty that he and his teammates displayed in those moments of horror and he should be proud that he , with the book and movie, did not leave them behind. Axelton, Murphy,Deitz and their story of selfless sacrifice are now widely known. They now will serve as a standard of what is right with this country at a time when we see so much wrong.

    The trouble with liberals, not many are interested in world affairs, they certainly cherish government gifts and entitlements, so they pay close attention when going to the ballot box. If the vast majority of them really understood what life would be like living under the dark umbrella of Muslim rule – they’d be the first ones screaming foul-play. But having 24/7 access to portable keypads enables them to forget the real world crashing down all around them. The only reason Obama became “commander in chief” in the first place, is massive doses of misinformation directed at American youth. It worked and these young people still don’t have a clue as to, who they placed in office.

    You are right. After the 1st World War which was supposed to end all wars British Prime Minister Chamberlain went to Munich to strike a deal with Hitler. This appeasement deal was done to avert war but it emboldened Hitler. If we would learn from history, we never make deals out of weakness which Kerry just did in Switzerland. Our soldiers are tired fighting such a long war in the east, but they never would give up like our politicians do. Carter and Obama are made of the same cloth. They should have known that you only can achieve peace through strength. By cutting our military to the bare bone the enemy will know they have nothing to fear.

    Zerogon. It may surprise you, but Iran is not the biggest supporter of terror in the Middle East. Iran is a Shiite nation and ever since 1992 the terror attacks have been made by the Sunnites. If you want to throw stones at someone, then throw them at Saudi Arabia. The Saudis pay others to do their dirty work; Iran keeps its money close to home and continues to build a huge army beset on taking over the Middle East when the time is right. We have many Muslims right here in America getting their terrorist ideology from mosques that are being built by Saudi Arabian money.

    Watched Lone Survivor on Friday evening, it was difficult to watch what these four men endured. The fact that my life is so easy and that I have never faced a challenge that remotely resembled what they went through really impacted me. I was a little shocked when exiting the theater, there was a group of people laughing and joking, saying things like “They should have called some marines to pull them out of there” and stuff like that. I couldn’t believe the level of stupidity on open display by these people. While I don’t always agree with our government, for the most part I do not, I do appreciate our service men and women for the jobs they do. I wish them all the best.

    Ahh, someone with an opinion. At this moment, the nations with the most American blood on their hands are anxiously waiting for the day when the US removes its troops from the Middle East. The Iranians are threatening to take over the whole region – why do you suppose the Syrian government has not been toppled, for one, the US has had a hands off policy, which is quite peculiar, especially after what just transpired with the recent Arab Spring which Obama and team had their hands in cookie-jar up to their elbow. Now for some strange reason – nothing – why. It is not news that the Iranians are helping Assad and Co. retain power. The Iranians have dominated policy in Iraq ever since we pulled our troops out of that theater. If we bring our boys home, it would only be a matter of time before Iranian proxy forces make their move and take control.

    Having the US void of Middle East Bases, the door is left wide open for an attack on our own soil…if you don’t like war now, think how much worse it will be in our own back yards.

    There is absolutely NO evidence of any pre-election
    deal with Iran to release the hostages. The Iranians
    were afraid of the election of Reagan. They figured
    Reagan would not be as timid as Carter. Also, the
    Americans were tired of a ‘Weanie” President (after
    all he was frightened by a attack Rabbit) and turned

    This is the reason why a president should be required to have served in the military. You never go to war needlessly but when you are committed to fight give it all you got. As a commander in chief you should leave politics behind and focus on winning the fight. War is cruel but when a leader calls for war, he must be an example to his troops of honesty, honor and duty.

    Spot on. Our military has been decimated by the likes of the liberal clueless who think, one gains peace though weakness, by making the first move of destroying ones weapons. Obama has already pledged to the Russians that he would destroy two-thirds of Americas nuclear arsenal. We have grounded a large portion of our fighter aircraft and new pilots are refraining to signup because the majority of their tour would be spent sitting idol in the hanger. Even active pilots have barely any practice flights because of new gov. regulations. We no longer are producing new weapons but we have enabled the Iranians to become the strongest nation in the Middle East, and we are allowing them to continue to build atomic weapons.

    I heard this morning on FOX – that there are new regulations making it harder for vets returning home from service to sign up for benefits – benefits they fought and died for, but it may only take a few minutes for one to sign up for welfare and food-stamps.

    We need to drop one big bomb on Iran, that would halt the terror around the world overnight, Then send our soldiers out in rapid reaction forces for any future threats to be cut off.

I’m afraid by the time Americans collectively wake up it will be to LATE!!!! I Hope I’m wrong people like Marcus and Glenn Beck fight to save us all…THANKS!!!!

    Are you serious!!!! Or are you just another lock-step liberal??? Reagan conspired to make Carter look bad?? Then that would mean Clinton conspired with the 9/11 terrorist to hit us after Bush took office, since his administration sat on their asses for 3 years, during his time in office, while they and planned, practiced their dry runs. In addition, Clinton had a chance to take OSB into custody, but turned it downed thanks to the advise of another ideological, lock-step liberal; Susan Rice. Just imagine if he had locked up OSB, instead of turning down the offer by Syria!!! He should be tried for 3,000+ murders???? The 1st attack on the WTC??? And Carter killed himself with double digit interest rates, double digit unemployment, gas rationing, and the list goes on & on. Do a little homework!!

    Tehran in 1978 was VERY western. That ended BECAUSE the Ayatollahs took power DEPOSED the Shah and Muslim extremists took over. My dad was one of the last Americans out of Iran and he was in Israel in l967. He could talk for hours about the middle east because he worked in the area from the ’60′s to ’80s. 40 years ago he predicted that the Middle East would be in chaos forever and their terrorists would attack the US.

Can you even begin to imagine how you would feel knowing what you and your team went through for people only to come home to punks shooting your dog, rappers stomping on your flag and then have to resort to simply being forgotten (and having your benefits cut)? May God bless our troops, and may we He give us the sense to honor and respect them and our country accordingly.

    You are so right. Has America exploded its last atomic weapon in anger…I, along with countless others around the world think so. Its not that the US doesn’t have the power to wipe these heathens off the map, its due to the overwhelming influx of oppinion from the liberal mind among us, who refuse to use our God Given Power. If there were ever a time in our history that a single nuclear bomb would do so much – now is the time. But as described above, the Muslim world understands the political correctness that is chocking the life out of us – better than we. They, in fact, are counting on us to destroy ourselves from within, and when civil war breaks out here in the States, because of this growing intolerance – these pig-sucking-monsters will be at our doorstep adding to our demise.

I know it’s hard for you to even hear these words without going into a fit and foaming at the mouth but Osama told us what they wanted. Get your troops out of the middle east but you arrogant morons think the world belongs to you, We have a bullying problem in our schools because we are bullies all over the world. How do think the children learn to be racists and bullies. Violence and hate is learned and it needs to be treated as a disease.

    Keystone yes that’s brilliant. We know that burning carbon is responsible for heating up the atmosphere and that it is warming up the oceans and causing more evaporation which in turns makes storms more erratic and violent so knowing that what do the greedy bastards dream up. Let’s go get the dirtiest fuel of all from the tar sands in Canada which will take massive amounts of water to extract it and then let’s ship it through pipelines to America so they can process it and ship it to Asia. Brilliant. Then let’s drill baby drill millions of wells by fracking which is destroying our drinking water acquirers and causing earthquakes and releasing methane which is 100 times more dangerous than CO2. Brilliant again. Driven by greed. We’ll just hire Hill & Knowlton to tell the suckers that it’s clean natural gas. By the way Fracking is the biggest private property land grab in the history of this country. How do you libertarians reconcile that? The reality is that we have the brain power well some of us have it to reinvent ourselves into the cleanest alternative renewable energy powerhouse. We already know that we have enough solar and wind energy to power this country 10 times over we already know how to do geothermal, hydrogen, tidal, fuel cells and many others. It should be full speed ahead like a Manhattan project but you fools let the oil, coal and gas companies and their corrupt billionaires take you for one last greedy ride. It reminds me of the Kings in Europe after me the deluge mentality.

    I as a progressive don’t have to do anything, you have and are destroying America. I am merely pointing out alternatives. But the American bullies are afraid to try anything they don’t understand.

  • Eric Bischoff

    They pull the troops out but not all and they leave a massive obscene so called embassy and they pay mercenaries 3 times what they paid the soldiers and they are not leaving.

    On the Solyndar issue you are clueless. Venture Capitalist never hit on everything they try. So it is with the Govt too but if you could get past the Fox talking point BS propaganda you’d realize that overall we are way ahead and successful in what the govt has funded.

    Again you are shooting yourselves in the foot.

    God forbid we ever lead the world in anything but incarcerating people!

  • Eric Bischoff

    You have to ask yourself who really won the war. Last time I looked Germany is the most successful Social Democratic capitalist country. All with a healthy manufacturing sector, strong unions and high wages, high savings rate, low credit debt, healthcare, education, a strong green party and a commitment to protect their environment, a hell of a lot of decentralized solar power, a commitment to phase out Nuclear power and some really nice cars. How is that even possible?

    And you contradict yourself…you finger point at republicans yet call them the same side of the coin as democrats. I too am an independent, fiscally conservative but socially liberal towards most things. I’m not quite sure how I compare to a “progressive” independent but I do know I have good intentions as I’m sure you do. I would venture to say if we sat down and had a conversation over dinner that many of our morals and values are essentially the same in many ways. I support veterans, the poor, the unemployed, women’s rights, human rights and the environment, just like you do so there’s a plus. I don’t know what you mean about voting against my best interest so you’ll have to elaborate before I can respond (I’m curious to know what you believe is my best interest.) I will say that I hate how you finger point and say, among other things, “you are racists in denial.” You who? In denial of what? In regards to your criticism of my opinion of socialism, all I can say is we each individually have opinions of what is best for our children, our money and our communities. Just because I may have interpreted socialism differently than you does not make me wrong. Again, I don’t understand when you say, “God forbid we should take care of ourselves, our families, our friends our community.” Do you not think most people want those same things for the people and things they love or have compassion for regardless of party leanings? In your closing you once again contradict yourself when you reiterate it’s not about the party but then every complaint you have seems to be the fault of one group – the Republicans. How about breaking the barrier and telling me something you do LIKE about “Republicans?”

    Still shaking in your boots whenever you hear communism. Has anyone even come close to advocating communism. Can you actually tell the difference between a social democracy and a communist country. Meanwhile you are living in a fascist police state with a Nazi like National Security spying on all of you and you are ready to vote for more of the same. 9/11 was a false flag and the Patriot act was already written by the neocons waiting in the wings to be passed in the middle of the night. It now says you are guilty until proven innocent and you can be locked up forever without trial and with only secret evidence. And you are worried about the Socialist Progressives who have never ruled this country short of the independent from Vermont Bernie Sanders. What’s he done that’s so scary, oh my god he helped Vermonters get universal healthcare and raise the minimum wage so that good hard working folks have more purchasing power which will only stimulate the economy and get the ball rolling. Wake up you are being sold a bill of goods.

    If you are tired of it change it. Isn’t that what we’ve discovered in Afghanistan. Educate and free the women and that will have a bigger impact in improving the country that a decade of war and trillions wasted.

    Like lemmings going a cliff. Or a stampede, or sheep baaahh.

    I’d rather go it alone. If all of you are going right I am turning left see you.

  • Eric Bischoff

    You just keep believing that but I got news for you history gets written by the victors and it’s rarely what really happened.

  • Eric Bischoff

    I apologize if in my passion I confuse people. What I like about Republicans is that they know how to use the system to get things done. Too bad they are rarely the things we need.

  • urbansissy

    I appreciate your passion, what I can’t get past is your vagueness. Give me something to talk to you about.

    I agree 100% with you, I oppose the establishment republicans who believe they somehow have the right to control who people marry, what they smoke, etc. I also believe that our military could be much more efficient in our “war on terror” if they were brought home to protect our own borders. A Libertarian and a Progressive arent that far apart on a lot of things, but…As a wise man once said “My hypocrocy only goes so far” and as soon as the progressives start talking about controlling residential development, gun control, forced income equality, growth based environmental laws, and government ran health care…. They just lose all credibility at that point…Really what you should be telling me is that you want freedom in many areas but you want control of other people in many other ways as well….No thanks, A Libertarian wants freedom for ALL!

    You may not be doing anything, but Progressives from both sides of the isle are digging a great divide right through the middle of this country. I look at it as a positive though, I’ve spent my whole life never really agreeing with either of the 2 major parties, and thanks to the extreme actions of progressives in congress and the one in the white house, the two party revolt has begun…The D’s and R’s are flayling on the edge of the cliff…realizing they sold everyones souls for their own political gain! Looking forward to seeing an “L” next to many more future politicians..

    Progressives are like all sectarian religious cultists,
    incapable of seeing anything but their leaders as divine and their doctrines as
    infallible. That is the sad irony. They rail against religious dogma when in
    fact they are dogmatic religionists. I know–I was once in the progressive
    cult. Then one day in 2007 I decided to watch Fox news to confirm how evil I
    had been saying they were. Glen Beck was on, and I knew I’d hit the jackpot, or
    crackpot. I was going to take notes and tell others what a nut he was. Beck
    drew one of his charts on a chalk board–a long line with tyranny/bondage at
    one end and anarchy/liberty at the other. He proceeded to simply and concisely
    explain the differences between the two political poles, and how the Founders
    had worked to keep us as close to liberty as possible, providing just enough
    structure to secure those liberties via the founding documents. He then shared
    how both democrats and republicans were moving us gradually back toward tyranny
    via incessant legislation and taxation. I was astonished, and converted on the
    spot. I have not looked back since. I am now able to look at every ideology and
    judge it by how much it supports and furthers human liberty, equal justice and
    unalienable rights for all. I now know that I was not a
    “progressive”, but a “regressive”, supporting a party that
    has been around since the beginning of organized politics–the ancient party of
    the many being dominated by the few. That isn’t progress–that has been the
    political norm throughout human history. Hey, Progressives, exit the democrat
    sect and embrace liberty.

  • IRV

    Oh now Eric. Tsk tsk. Please do know that there is no one I would rather make “sicker” than a bitter, hate-filled, tyranny loving progressive cultist. Perhaps your illness will take you to the bottom of your vitriolic resentment, and in a moment of liberal hallucinatory feverishness, you may have an epiphany and find freedom from your hatred and ignorance. Anything is possible.

  • IRV

    “Progressives” are
    actually “regressives”, always supporting ideas and leaders that
    place the many under the despotism of the few enlightened know-it-alls. Eric, admit
    it, you are a know-it-all. Your astringently written hysterics ooze the pus of an
    angry Tyrannist. Of course, it is your brilliant and cocksure version of
    tyranny–but tyranny nonetheless. Your arterial-popping rants reveal an
    inner Ahmadinejad, almost like you mimic the barmy asylum inmates on MSNBC.
    That is why I left the “progressive” movement–they are little
    dictators who always know what is best for everyone. Perhaps it is because you
    are your own Higher Power–unless of course you defer to the Zeusian authority
    of El Presidente B.O. We look forward to your next bitter diatribe. You cannot
    resist the bait. Hey–grin–release some Dopamine into that hopeless noggin
    spinning atop your hyperactive torso.
