You get what you vote for…

leave a comment »

If you are so unfortunate as to live in a city run by Democrats,  you get riots and destruction.    John Nolte lays it all out for  you here.    And like Nolte,  I tend to think that those who keep voting Democrats into office deserve the disasters they voted for.   Those who voted for a better alternative don’t deserve to be dragged through all the chaos and mayhem,  but I sincerely hope they band together and vote the SOB’s out of office.

I would advise that they then run them out of the county,  and then the state,  but I want none of them landing within 500 miles of me.   That would include the staggeringly  stupid Fairfax  County Democratic Committee in Virginia, which tweeted:  “…Riots are an integral part of this country’s march towards progress.”   It scrubbed the tweet,  but some clever patriot grabbed a screen shot which will live on despite the deletion.

New Yorkers…

leave a comment »

…would mostly  be happy  if more of their fellow citizens died from COVID because it went on longer,  if it meant it got rid of Trump.  I am not the least surprised by this.  The ratio of sane people to the rest was what I would have guessed.  New York is a very special place, one I used to enjoy visiting,  but one you could not pay me enough to visit now,  much less live in.  It has become a place ripe with corruption and gross incompetence.  This drop-dead attitude is relatively common in progressive bastions,  and yes,  they really,  really mean it.

Ami Horowitz did his usual stellar job of asking people interesting questions,  though I worry that he was not as safe as he might have been.  I hope he eschewed public transportation,  as I hear from a friend there that the homeless have taken over the subway system and most of them are sick and just riding around pumping out germs.  I wondered at the beginning if big city Democratic mayors with substantial homeless populations  wouldn’t welcome COVID as a means of wiping out much of that particular population and cleaning up sections of their cities.  The homeless have already been counted for census and goodie-grabbing purposes so who cares what happens to them?  They can import more homeless if the borders open up.  If Democrats can scare us all even more, they hope to get away with instituting a national lock-down and wrecking the economy permanently so people must depend on the government for survival.

Not trivial…

leave a comment »

…when you fail to notice that $500 million in a pot distributed equally to 327 million people does NOT mean everyone gets $1 million.  They would actually get $1.53 each.   New York Times editorial member Mara Gay  and her MSNBC interviewer,  Brian Williams,  last week took the original tweet at face value.  Was it one of those things too good not to be true?   Hmm…  Now Ms. Gay is  declaring anyone  who called out her trivial error  racist, because she is black,  you know.   It seems not to occur to her that she is obliquely claiming blacks are not only  incompetent at math,  but should not be expected to be able to handle a simple math problem.

Young Turks meltdown…

leave a comment »

First the host of that miserable show goes nuts when Bernie face-plants on Super Tuesday — here’s the video  for your viewing pleasure.   I freely admit that watching  Cenk Uygur rant and rave about “senile” Biden was amusing,  not the least because he looks exactly like what he is –  an overgrown bully with an inflated sense of importance.

Now he  is saying that all Biden has to do is “not collapse” during the debate and he’ll win.  It is always fun to watch progressives wet their pants and foam at the mouth as they attempt to force reality to fit into their desires.

This young Bernie  supporter puts  on a better emotive show,  but is more pitiful than alarming.

Cowardly city…

leave a comment »

You can now add Durham,  New Hampshire to the list of town mau-maued by anti-religious lefty activists.   The Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony is now the Frost Fest and there will  be no  lighting ceremony.  There will also be no wreaths on  the Main Street lamp posts,  and Santa won’t arrive in a fire truck as he used to.

A handful of people said the tree made them uncomfortable.   Instead of cowering under the table,  the town council members should have told them not to attend and thus avoid upset.   If I were a resident of Durham,  I would strongly contemplate running for town council to be rid of the spineless species who currently hold the positions.   Religion and standards must be destroyed so that progressives can rule.   Warning:  I want progressives to be uncomfortable.  I want them to be so uncomfortable that they recede into the darkness.  I want them to be so surrounded by goodness and light and the Christmas spirit that they shuffle off,  moaning in despair.   Will you help?

How you treat others…

leave a comment »

No one was a fraction as rude to Hillary when she was First Lady.  If  this protest  of Mrs. Trump is indicative of the staff’s level of competence and professionalism,  I would not take a puppy or kitten to them for care.

Progressives claim to care so much,  but if you look at what they actually say and do,  the picture is much less attractive, isn’t it?   Face it,  they don’t like ordinary people, only the other group-think freaks they hang out with.

Progressives say…

leave a comment »

…a woman’s right to choose must be unlimited because killing a foetus is reproductive health care.   It isn’t very healthy for the foetus,  that’s for sure,  but by now you should know that progressives don’t care about children or unborn children or women, or pretty much anyone who disagrees with them.   They espouse actual violence if you get in their way.   Watch this  famous YouTube star explain that if his mother had listened to her doctor,  she would have aborted him for fear he’d be born with Downs syndrome or other terrible deficiencies,  and he wouldn’t be a gamer with millions of followers.   Ninja thanked his mom for finding a different doctor so he would have his life and be able to do something with it.

The  “Choose Life” slogan makes sense to this young man.    And if you haven’t learned already,  doctors and scientists  don’t know everything,  they make mistakes,  and sometimes they lie.   Humans have the most astonishing capacity for rationalization.   It’s how we live with our sorry selves  —  our mistakes,  our flaws,  our falsehoods — the less heroic aspects of our humanity.   I decided a long time ago that must be how uber liberals and progressives are able to hold contradictory thoughts in their brains without going totally insane immediately.   Of course,  the pressures of such illogical behavior overcomes them eventually……

Gray Lady guilty…

leave a comment »

Actually, the Gray Lady isn’t a lady any more,  but a cheap slut,  full of anti-Semitism,  hatred of any religion but Islam.   This is the  disgusting cartoon the Times published in its Thursday international edition.  This was the day before the day before a gunman entered a Chabad synagogue in suburban San Diego,  killing one and injuring three.

Applying the same standards the progressive paper used to justify printing lies and smears against candidate Sarah Palin,  it is now at least partially responsible for the synagogue shooting.   Thomas Lifson makes the case,  here.   It is always delicious to turn the hypocrisy of progressives against them.

And remember that anti-Semitism is on the rise around the world,  and it is not Christians who are responsible for it.   I was frankly surprised by the number of people and organizations  which slammed the paper.  I am totally unsurprised by the paper’s attempt to  avoid blame for its execrable  judgment and  utter lack of decency.   And now we know the shooter was an anti-Semite,  a Trump hater and not a conservative.   I wonder how the media will try to spin this unwelcome news.

Microsoft dumps gun emoji…

leave a comment »

In April of last year Microsoft followed Google,  Facebook and Apple in ditching its hand gun emoji,  to be replaced by a wimpy water gun version.   This link has  a chart  of the changes.

I mention this now because the Democrats who control the House are desperate to eviscerate both the First and Second Amendments  They don’t wish to be bothered with any competing ideas through free speech.  If they were not intending to do to us things for which the only proper response would be our use of firearms,  they would not be so determined to rob us of the right to protect ourselves.  Progressives would welcome another school shooting so they could have an excuse to call for more gun control.   They will not acknowledge the studies which show that armed citizens stop hundreds of thousand of crimes each year, preferring to believe that if you want to have a gun, you must be an evil criminal.  They never admit to living behind gates and walls and layers of armed security themselves.

It is up to you to demand that your Congress critters strike down the multitude of attempts to kill the first two parts of the Bill of Rights,  the document the Founders devised to enable us to protect ourselves and our country against those who would destroy it.  You have been warned — now get off your asses and start calling and writing!

Me Too stupidity…

leave a comment »

I have listened to —  and sung —  the original lyrics of the song “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” and they still don’t bother me at all.  I am not terribly surprised that the snowflakes and hysterics of the Me Too movement want us to believe that the  lyrics speak of  sexual harassment at the very least.   That is despite the fact that the point and counterpoint have been sung by both men and women.    Do none of these people know anyone who likes them well enough to try to coax them to stay a bit longer?  Does every male they know want only to rape them?  That’s what it sounds like.

I feel sorry for them,  but I have no intention of letting their fears  and self-loathing run my life.   What is it which drives liberal and progressive women to demand that others do something to solve their problems, to make them feel good about themselves?   They appear unwilling to take the smallest action to fix a problem.   Oh,  sure,  they’ll protest and wear ugly hats and scream at people from the perceived safety of a crowd,  but even in a group they have little physical bravery.   I encountered the grandparents of the Antifa crowd when they were protesting the Vietnam war,  killing soldiers who returned from that conflict and had the misfortune to wear their uniforms out on the street.  Some of them were well known for carrying signs attached to lengths of metal pipes filled with concrete.  they liked to sneak up behind people and hit them in the head with the pipes, then run away, pleased with their destruction.  But if they themselves received a bruise or scratch you could hear them screaming for help a mile away.  I don’t see the Me Too movement as much different in terms of claiming victimhood.  If you were abused,  I am sorry for that, but get off your ass and do something about it.   Why didn’t you do something at the time?  what does your failure to act say about your character,  not as a woman,  but as a human being?   You refuse to stand up for yourself but feel free to hurl abuse at those of us who refuse to follow your silly rules.   Wallow in your self-pity and victimhood.   But do not think the rest of us owe you anything else.
