2011 Review: Top Ten Scariest People In America

As we approach the end of the year I'll carry on my tradition of reviewing the year via easy-to-read lists. Other people do this, but I didn't steal the idea from them.

Today, it's the Top Ten Scariest People In America:
  1. Barack Obama: Not because he is inept which is scary, but we've had inept presidents before, in fact we've had them as recently as 2007. He's scary because he is a divider and a manipulator. He divides to hide his ineptitude and the wedge he is driving between people of differing political ideologies is proving to be extremely destructive.
  2. Joe Biden: He's Number 2 and he is an utter buffoon.
  3. Rush Limbaugh: Not because he is a narrow-minded bloviator (he is), but because he is a divider and a manipulator. He divides in the name of advertising dollars and the wedge he is driving between people of differing political ideologies is proving to be extremely destructive.
  4. Sean Hannity: He is intolerant of people outside of his comfort zone and he has a nationwide radio network to spew his intolerance to other intolerant people, all in the name of advertising dollars.
  5. NBC: Fear-mongers in the extreme with a hard-Left political ideology, each and every broadcaster on NBC and its associated networks has long forgotten the journalistic principle of neutrality and fairness. That they hold so much sway over such a large segment of the population is scary.
  6. Ron Paul: A relic of the paleo-Libertarian Party that lowered itself to every freak Right Wing faction in the country, Ron Paul is now bringing Libertarianism to the national stage, which is really scary to pragmatic and level-headed libertarians who simply don't buy into his narrow-minded views of the world. He's scary because he could single-handedly send the Libertarian movement back to the mid-1980's when all the hippies and punks were kicked out in favor of racists and extremists and John Birch-types. We've been fighting against that era of stupidity for 25 years and some of us would like to get past it all now.
  7. Occupy Wall Street: Nah, they're not scary, and they're not even relevant, but those three simple words help with Google hits like you would not believe, and well, there is the fact that these folks will be running the old age home my kids are going to stick me in.
  8. John Boehner: The Michael Scott of politics. 'Nuff said.
  9. SEIU: All labor union leadership is a threat to the private sector just because of their history of corruption and worker manipulation, but the SEIU, as a public-sector union, has far too much influence over the government and its operations. They have become a shadow state that no one is comfortable talking about.
  10. People Who Need Public Assistance To Help Them Quit Smoking: The City of New York proudly advertises public assistance for people trying to quit smoking. Just freaking quit smoking for crying out loud. Why do you have to rely on government aid to help you save your own life? Their utter patheticness far outweighs any sense of fear I get from an over-reaching government.
