Don’t herd me, bro!

If you’re a vegan protester and think you should be able to disrupt an equestrian competition without consequence,  you might want to check and see if  any cowboys  are in attendance,  and whether they traditionally carry whips.  South American cowboys do.  American cowboys generally do not,  but they do carry lassoes and I can tell you that they sting like crazy if you get swatted with one.  Will this title be their new battle cry?

Shameful scoffing…

leave a comment »

read this  three times,  trying to decide if it was fake,  but given the behavior of some lefties of late, realized it was probably the real thing.  Who else would be protesting about “scoffing”?

Trump in London…

leave a comment »

We were assured by MSM that the baby Trump balloon was HUGE,  and that tens of thousands of protesters demonstrated against his presence. Thanks to the PowerLine blog,  we know  neither claim  is true.

Is journalism still a profession?

Protesters at Cleveland…

leave a comment »

Some  Communist protesters  managed to burn the flag yesterday,  after announcing their intention to do so,  but a police officer quickly extinguished it.   The other draw was an anti-Trump “wall.”   Despite the great attention paid to this incident and others,  the protesters have  failed to  show up in the numbers forecast, and the confrontations have been limited and efficiently dealt with in a professional manner.

Whoever designed the security plan for Cleveland deserves praise,  and seems to have planned for every contingency so that the necessary assets are available,  but not deployed until needed.   Twenty-two arrests so far is a very small number.   The obvious state of readiness may be one reason that the protesters are no-shows.   I was also struck by the white ponytails and paunches of the Commies,  who were apparently bused in from Chicago.   I hope they are secret Bernie supporters who also plan to attend the Democrats’ convention next week. I would also note that the Bikers for Trump group was polite and orderly and even handed out bottled water to the various law enforcement officers enforcing the dispersal order.

UPDATE:  The flag burner managed to  set himself  on fire along with the flag.   It’s so hard to find a competent anarchist these days…

Give her a raise…

leave a comment »

“Fight for 15” activists invaded a Taco Bell outlet in Austin,  Texas and tried to get an employee to join them.   She told them she had a job to do and they were interfering and should leave.   Watch  the video,  then tell the owners or franchisees to give her a raise immediately and put her in a management program.

Protesters vs people…

leave a comment »

For protesters,  the lives of an  82-year-old  crash victim and a soldier needing surgery  obviously don’t matter all that much.

UPDATE:    Boston Mayor Martin Walsh  has fired  one of the protesters,  a city employee,  for endangering public safety.

Sometimes Mother Nature  does us  normal people trying to go about our daily lives a whopping big favor.
