The hit reality series is officially in its final season. I wasn’t an ardent fan, but did enjoy watching from time to time. It sparked no small amount of of controversy in the culture wars, but a great many people admired the family which were unabashed Christians, and who took their business of making duck calls to a remarkable level of entrepreneurial success.
As much as the sneering coastal elites are loathe to admit it, the Robertson clan is an essentially American success story, one which has become increasingly rare under the over-regulated, big government regime Democrats depend on to force their insane policies down the throats of American citizens who “get” the Robertsons and rather admire them. I’m one of them.
Bernini’s elephant statue in Rome was vandalized last Sunday night, with the tip of one tuck being broken off. It was commissioned by a Pope in the mid-1600’s, and though it sits in a small square off the main tourist paths, it draws a number of visitors who appreciate its uniqueness as a part of Italy’s cultural heritage.
Turin, Italy has a new mayor, and he’s clearly a liberal idiot. How do I know? Because he plans to make his city vegetarian, beginning with a meat-free day. In this region of Italy shopping for meat is a nearly daily activity, and there are glorious choices to make amongst the many offerings of various meats and sausages.
Not only are the butchers and markets unhappy, but a good percentage of the citizens, especially the older ones, have no intention of going vegan to save the environment. Like all normal people, they want food which tastes good, and meat is one of the things which tastes very good to most humans.
He has evidently been taking lessons from Our Lady of Perpetual Dissatisfaction, because he first wants to “educate” the citizenry about the alternative choices. He thinks the people who elected him are dumber than rocks, which is, of course, precisely what Michelle Obama also thinks.
With any luck, Turin will rid itself of this fool in the next election, thus proving itself smarter than America was with His Oneness.
No, this has nothing to do with Bill Clinton or Anthony Weiner. It’s about what happens to a sad old widower when a four-year-old child notices him in a grocery store and they strike up a friendship.
Walter Williams explains why American youth are so dumb. Basically you can thank the liberals who took over our public education system and changed learning into indoctrination. Unless they are studying hard sciences, they learn very little beyond how horrible America is, how racist/homophobic/sexist Americans are, and that climate change deniers are Hitlers in training.
They learn nothing about logic or reasoning, which is why it’s so easy to brainwash them. Years of having their self-esteem pumped up, without justification, has made them believe they are smart and wise and actually know something. They don’t really know anything, except they would surely collapse without their smart phones to organize their narrow lives. They are uneducated, they don’t know how to learn, and yet they think they are qualified to lead us. Not on my watch.
As proof, listen to the youth deploring the “tone” of this election — easy to do if you know nothing of history.
In this insane election season, a cult of quiet sounds extremely attractive, doesn’t it? I won’t be going to see the documentary film “In Pursuit of Silence”, but it’s a rather appealing notion to me because of all the political noise.
For me, if I’m around people, I expect some level of noise. People interact, they react, they move, they speak. The prospect of sitting in a room full of people in total silence bores me to death. When I want peace and quiet, I go sit outside on my back porch with my dog and a cup of coffee. I’ll hear birds and the occasional dog barking or a vehicle passing, and wind rustling through the trees, but that’s it. That’s enough for me.
This test will tell you, just in case you are uncertain of your own diagnosis. It also serves as a useful guide to what progressives actually believe, or claim they do until one of their beliefs pinches their own ass too painfully.
Absent a brain injury, I am not capable of becoming a progressive, because I see the world as it is and employ logic and reason. I think as well as feel. Progressives must continually deny and avoid reality lest their pointy little heads explode. Frankly, that’s too much work for me!
