…is threatening to kill people you don’t like on Twitter.   Like  this guy,  who renewed his threats against Rep. Bob Goodlatte,  even after a visit from the authorities,  who elicited his promise to refrain from such behavior.   The truly pathetic thing is that many progressives will be sorry only that he was caught,  not by his actions.   Violence is acceptable behavior so long as it is used against those you disagree with.

Data-mining…

leave a comment »

Media is behaving as if Trump is the only one who benefited from it and it’s just awful.  But when His  Oneness did  it,  media hailed him as a genius.  Facebook may have been surprised that the Obama team was able to such up and employ so much information,  but made no effort to interfere because they were  Obama fans.  But when Facebook realized Cambridge Analytics was doing the same thing to benefit Trump,  it suddenly got religion.

Rest assured that had Cambridge been working for Hillary or Bernie,  Facebook would have chosen to remain agnostic.   But the data was being used to assist Trump,  and that was unacceptable, and thus  a scandal.   You may well ask what the scandal is  — there  is not  one, really, nor is there any sort of  existential crisis.   If you understand this,  you understand the staggering hypocrisy of the media giants.  They get to change the rules,  or simply ignore them,  as it suits them.  I use a friend’s Facebook account so I can keep track of all the cute baby pictures and such amongst my family and friends,  but Facebook knows nothing about me.  In fact,  I barely exist on social media platforms,  which suits me fine,  considering the frequency  and severity of their data breaches.

Why is anyone…

…still willing to live in California?   Should a waiter who gives a  plastic straw  to a diner who did not specifically request one be subject to six months in jail and a fine of up to a grand?   Of course not,  but two cities in that state have already passed such laws,  and now the state legislature is considering doing the same.

The solution is to instead pass a law that any government official asking for  a straw or a glass of water be subject to those punishments.  After all, they should help save the planet too,  right?

When an illegal alien who doesn’t speak English is the first one tripped up,  it will be fascinating to see the progressives tie their tongues into pretzel knots trying to weasel out of the law.

It’s about time…

Baltimore businesses are  finally suing  most of the city of Baltimore, including former mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, and the police department for letting the Freddie Gray rioters destroy their properties.

Baltimore is run by black progressives,  who do not look with favor upon the Second Amendment since they much prefer subjects to citizens.   Quick,  name a city run by black progressives to which ordinary citizens are flocking because it’s a great place to live and work….

Mother’s’ Day 2017…

leave a comment »

Patrice Lewis  raises an  interesting question:  is it mother’s or women’s day?   I favor Mother’s Day,  because that’s what it was established for and mothers hold a unique place,  at least in the Western world.   So-called feminists are fond of sneeringly calling actual mothers “breeders”, yet that epithet is reserved for Western women,  and applied even more enthusiastically to Christian women,  whereas they have nothing to say about the women and girls who suffer under shariah and Islam,  and who are,  in fact,  breeders so far as their society’s males are concerned.

Jesus was a  big fan  of children,  as well as their mothers,  which is but one reason progressives and our previous president so despise those of us who cling to our God,  guns —  you know the rest.

A mother of the  duck variety  and all but one of her brood were rescued from a swimming pool and escorted to a nearby lake by a group of volunteers.

This little autistic boy’s parents fell down on their job, but a Kansas policeman stepped up and  saved the  child.

I was invited to a mother’s day luncheon by a family member and happily went and had great food and a wonderful time with everyone.  I hope all of you were as fortunate.

Told you…

…that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch was just Eric Holder in a skirt with better diction.   Yeah,  I was spot on about what a  violent lefty she is.

UPDATE:  I forgot to tell you that the reason I noticed is because Democrats found her rant  so inspirational  they promoted it,  and there’s a video!

Whiny women march…

leave a comment »

Since the 1970’s a woman in America could complain of abuse by an employer or business, then sit on her fanny while the federal government pursued the alleged miscreant, and the complaining woman would get the fine or jury award and we taxpayers would pick up the entire cost of the venture.  That is not human rights,  or civil rights,  or even women’s rights  –  it’s special rights to which no one else is entitled,  and that is how the so-called women’s rights groups want to keep it.

They also want to keep getting the tax breaks for minority and women-owned businesses,  despite numerous reports that many of the women are merely fronts for the businesses and contribute nothing to it beyond getting them the preferential loan treatments and special dispensations.

The progressive women’s groups keep some very unsavory company,  such as  the D.C. organizer,  who is pro Sharia law and has ties to the  terrorist group Hamas.   Additionally,  at least 56 partners of the D.C. march  have ties  to George Soros,  as well  as Hillary  Clinton.

I channel-surfed to see what the marchers were saying.   Many of them just seemed to be hysterically  anti-Trump, but none of them made much sense,  especially those complaining about an apparent nation-wide shortage of  pink yarn with which to make their pussy hats.   Drew Belsky had a  much better  idea,  except I doubt many of those marchers could fry an egg successfully.

Progressive feminism’s call for “equality”  doesn’t help  women, and neither did the  vulgar language   and crude costumes.  Defiance of what?  Solidarity in  what?  In believing you’re cool because you  banned pro-life groups from the march?

There were a  few aerial  push-backs against the drumbeat of “my victimhood is  greater than yours” and “my grievance  is more important than yours.”

Since this march was a spectacular failure, the progressive females have decided to promote another march for a “Day Without Women” or some such thing.   The chief promoter is a  convicted terrorist.   But her militant and bloody background should make  her perfect  for the militant phase of protests.
