The Idiot Stick

The Idiot Stick

Ever wonder where the phrase “idiot stick” came from? Wouldn’t it be cool if Nerf or someone would come out with such a neat device we could have some fun with liberals with?

In 1958, writer Damon Knight published a short story about aliens landing in New Jersey and putting humans to work by making them “feel good” from a capsule given from the aliens. It has some interesting parallels to the lulling of the electorate by DC currently.

Here is the synopsis of the story –

Aliens land in New Jersey, in a mile-long space ship. They request 500 acres (2.0 km2) of level ground to erect buildings, and induce humans to work for them by passing out capsules that produce a feeling of temporary bliss. The workers are given sticks, each a “light metal or plastic rod, five feet long, with a curved handle and a splayed tip”:

“When the command ‘Go’ is heard,” said the alien’s voice clearly, “you will all proceed directly forward at a slow walking pace, swinging your sticks from side to side.”

The sticks flatten the ground in front of the people as they walk. Later the aliens make adjustments in the sticks, and the ground bulges up into walls. Eventually an enormous building takes shape.

The aliens are circumspect about their motives. One alien, Pendrath, is fond of fraternizing with humans. On one occasion he becomes drunk (from aspirin), and lets slip that the building will house a giant drill, which will be used to place a bomb in the core of the Earth. The purpose is to increase the amount of dust in the space around the Sun as a means to slow down spaceships and to protect the aliens from invasion.

The humans become desperate to find a defense. They modify the “idiot sticks” at random; each modification causes the stick to become unstable and to kill its operator. Eventually a pattern is found that is stable and that is lethal to the aliens. A mob storms the ship and the aliens are killed.

So what’s the parallel here? Well, the liberals are the aliens trying to enslave the American people through government entitlement programs. They have been doing a dandy job in reconstituting slavery in America since the end of World War I, they have just been propagating it in a different manner. Gone are the days of Master beating the downtrodden slave with a whip. Now, Master is the “benevolent” government bureaucrat handing our feel good treats in the manner of unrestricted renewable energy grants, welfare money to single mothers to keep them producing the future livestock for abuse, abortion programs funded by federal dollars to promote the destruction of life from within the nation, and of course  providing the masses with “free” healthcare to ensure they keep coming back for more.

Just like the beings in Knight’s story, the Obama supporters have been given their idiot sticks as well. These sticks were not to swing at the ground, but to pounce upon any racist that dared to defy The Supreme Liberal Alien Obama – such as the Tea Party scum. While buildings were not erected with these sticks, large barriers of stupidity, ignorance, racism, and hate were erected instead to quash the ideas of Constitutional basis for law, individual responsibility, liberty, and a capitalism form for the economy.

The Liberals here have also become drunk, not from aspirin, but raw power. In the drunken stooper, they let slip comments like “…they cling to their God and their guns…”, “. We have to pass the bill to see what’s inside the bill.”, or as one of the liberal champions Harry Reid commented on a visiting crowd to DC”…is that smell coming from back there?…” Yes, the aliens have let loose lips slip the overall agenda of transforming America into a communist state as soon as possible. While there will be no bomb dropped to the center of the earth (Liberals can’t allow drilling because you might hit oil), they are working overtime to “bomb” us to death with untold trillions of debt.

As with Knight’s humans in his story, the United States Conservative Movement has awoke and is on a path of defense of Constitutional liberties and improving their methods of aggressive reclamation of lost liberties. Conservatives have taken the idiot stick from liberals and used it to beat back these aliens to once again restore liberty in the nation. The first phase of storming the alien mothership (Capitol Hill) was successful in 2010 by placing more conservatives in the US House of Representatives. The next offensive is scheduled for November 2012 when the US Senate and Presidency will be taken back. Unlike the short story, we anticipate no casualties but a peaceful transition of power.

Unless of course the aliens turn violent against change and then all bets are off.

If that happens, you could see a whole lot of idiots being actual hit with that proverbial stick.
