Carly Fiorina and the Land of Mordor

Oh, what a wonderful time in which to live, if you are a Conservative.  I know that might be a bold statement to some of my Conservative friends out there, but it’s true.  We are living in a time when, even though the Progressives almost have a monopoly on the weapons of the culture-war, the evidence of the failed ideologies of our opponents is ripening to fruition.  Take California, for example.  Please, somebody take it.

In case you haven’t heard, California is experiencing a drought, and Governor Moonbeam has been forced to put on his Sauron costume and lay out some Lord of the Rings style justice on the private citizens who take showers deemed too long by the Dark Lord.  From the Washington Times:

“California Gov. Jerry Brown announced a crackdown last week on residential and businesses in an effort to reduce overall water usage by 25 percent over the next nine months. The order doesn’t include the agriculture industry, which accounts for roughly 80 percent of all human water use, the Wall Street Journal reported.”

In the same article quoted above, Carly Fiorina’s visit with Glenn Beck is covered, detailing how she feels about Governor “Moonbeam” Brown and big government in General.  Mrs. Fiorina may throw her hat in the Presidential Primary ring soon.  I listened to her interview with Beck this morning.  I like her take on government.  Mrs. Fiorina believes there’s too much of it.

“Government has grown so huge, so powerful, so costly, so complex, it is literally crushing the life out of this country,” she argued. “It is crushing small and family-owned businesses, which are the economic engine of our nation. It is crushing possibilities out of people’s lives by entangling them in a web of dependence from which they cannot escape. The weight, the cost and the power of government are literally crushing the potential of the nation.

Meanwhile, the Citizens of Mordor are just going to have to do with less water for their dirty armpits so Big Agriculture can keep up their production.  We Conservatives will just be over here, looking at Chicago, Detroit, California, and the other liberal utopias, taking notes.
