Some Random Observations

Yo! Some thoughts...

● Apparently, there was a debate. Mike Pence v. Tim Kaine and Elaine Quijano. It sounds like Pence beat them, but the articles saying that Sanders Kaine won were already written a year ago.

● So apparently, Hillary has been calling Sanders's supporters worse things than deplorables. It's too bad the left has no principles and no pride or they might actually stand up to her. That would be fun. But you know, they are the left and they'll do what they are told to do by the herd.

● Is it just me or has social media become an entertaining battleground of retards? Professional slut Amber Rose is whining that she got fat shamed by another Twitter hog. I am woman, hear me whine. Demi Lovato (a real name) is bitch shaming Taylor Swift for having only hot friends because it makes her fans feel fat. She them promptly quit the world for a few days as she deTwitters. It's definitely not funny to make fun of Kim Kardashian and wish she had died in the robbery... or so half the internet says. They are fun shaming the other half who are thinking it would have been funny if Kim had met her end tied up in a bathtub. And how dare Bruce Jenner -- damn, gonna get trans-shame for that one -- uh, Caitlyn Jenner post something about having a good time as poor Kim fought for her life in Paris. Snort, I mean, sniff sniff. Perhaps now Caitlyn will learn that being fake-sympathy-deficient shamed isn't fun. Isn't it funny that a bunch of people with no shame whatsoever throw that word around like it means something?

● I find it funny that we're supposed to respect the rights of the handful of a-holes who have attacked the National Anthem because it's gloriously American to protest someone else yada yada yada. Yet the same people who assure us of this use words like "disgrace" to attack those who protest the protestors. The latest is a radio station that won't be broadcasting the next football game of some team where most of the band refused to play the national anthem. Whined the enlightened few that this form of protest was "a disgrace." So all protests were created equal... some are just more equal than others.

● Whoops. The Pope just bitchslapped the gay movement. He called out schools who accept the idea that children can pick their genders and he spoke of a war against marriage. Funny how that didn't draw the interest of the same MSM who couldn't stop speculating that he was down with being gay.

● Uber-leftist Stephen King says he's "scared to death" of Trump winning the presidency. What does King know about fright? Judging by everything he's written since the 1970s, not much. He probably stole that quote from someone else too. That is his M.O.

● Hillary Clinton warns us that fat shaming can lead to suicide. Care to demonstrate, Madame Pantsuit?

● "What kind of genius loses a billion dollars in a year?" asked Hillary Clinton. Sounds like a typical Democratic budget. Nevertheless, let me counter with this question: "What kind of genius loses four American lives, a laptop, four cell phones, three tablets and 33,000 emails all while pretending to be Secretary of State?"

BTW, Don't forget that there's a great article on Dracula at the film site thanks to Rustbelt.

re Stephen King: I'm scared to death of Trump —and Hillary.

EPorvaznik said...

The Pope actually said those things??? Dammit, now I've got to be a cafeteria Catholic with his messages.

Dear Pope Francis, more on morality, please, less on economics.

Somehow I'm not surprised that two of the most ear bleeding "artists" I have the misfortune to be subjected to at work and other places ended up on the social media ass list. South Park called it when they had Butters edit Demi Lovato's online stuff into a safe space last season, didn't they? And somehow I'm not surprised about the rest of it, either, especially on the robbery. Now you've got me curious as to what Hillary called her old rival's supporters, too. There really is no shortage of stupid these days, is there?

Andrew's right, folks! Want a break from political lunacy? This week's article features Max Shreck and Bela Lugosi in the classic films, "Nosferatu" (1922) and Universal's "Dracula" (1931).
Plus, some info on author Bram Stoker! LINK

From the NYT:

In a major document regarding family issues released in April — titled “Amoris Laetitia,” Latin for “The Joy of Love” — Francis warns of “an ideology of gender” as a threat to the family.

“Creation is prior to us and must be received as a gift,” he writes. “At the same time, we are called to protect our humanity, and this means, in the first place, accepting it and respecting it as it was created."

Then last week, he told Bishops: “Today, in schools they are teaching this to children — to children! — that everyone can choose their gender." He called it "ideological colonialization" and said it was an assault on marriage.

AndrewPrice said...

Kit, Think of how much fun it will be to watch all the delicates suffer if Trump wins.

AndrewPrice said...

Daniel, What's even funnier is that Lovato said she refuses to be "politically correct" and not call out Swift for not having any fat friends. Huh? Clearly, Lovato isn't bright enough to realize that she's on the PC side. Very typical of liberals. They don't realize they're the Nazis either.

AndrewPrice said...

Rustbelt, Definitely some interesting facts in the article about a fascinating book and how it became films.

tryanmax said...

Seeing how the debate was moderated was painful. Quijano was like the overwhelmed schoolteacher who tries to be "fair" by scolding the quiet kids along with the rowdy ones.

If protest is the highest form of patriotism, then protesting the National Anthem is a show of respect for America. *head explodes*

I was reminded the other day that social justice originated in the Catholic church before lefties co-opted it. In other words, if the Pope sounds like a Marxist, it's only because Marxists have been imitating the Pope. And I remain bemused that the left wants so bad to like this Pope even though he's proven firm on all the Catholic doctrine that they despise.

King actually stole that line from Kaine. That's how unclever he's become.

The "genius" thing is really backfiring on Clinton on social media. Lots of comments like yours and like this: "What kind of a genius loses a billion dollars in a single year?", says woman that lost $6 billion as Secretary of State

AndrewPrice said...

It sounds like Kaine lost last night by being a jerk. That's what I'm seeing all over the net, with liberals just going with the old "last night doesn't matter."

AndrewPrice said...

tryanmax, Basically, it's a message they like but they don't have the balls to say so because everyone else hates it. So they are trying to make it acceptable by wrapping it in the flag -- something they whine about conservatives doing. But as always with liberals, their "principles" don't extend to messages they don't like or to people who disagree with them. Hence, they are patriotic and noble and those who say the opposite are vile and evil. Typical.

That's true that Marxism and the Catholic Church became nearly synonymous in the 1970s, but things have definitely changed as the Church returned to its doctrine. At this point, I think they use the quotes they can and ignore the Pope otherwise.

I haven't seen anything from King in decades now that hasn't been straight up stolen.

Hillary is horrible at insults and is definitely not someone who should be throwing stones. Thief. Liar. Criminal. National Security endangerer. Big on cover ups. Rapist husband. Daughter is married to Bernie Madoff Part 2. Lover/advisor has Antisemetic Islamist Mother and pedophile philanderer husband, and violated national security. In fact, there hasn't been a single attack she's made that hasn't been hypocritical.

BevfromNYC said...

Andrew & Tryanmax - My two personal favorite "backfires" were when Madeline Albright and Gloria Steinum screeched that if a woman doesn't vote for Hillary then she is a traitor to all women everywhere - That was met with a resounding "WTF?? We thought the Feminist Movement was about women having their own voice. Not just trading one master for another...huh." from pretty much most women with brains. Hence no Albright or Steinum on the campaign trail...

The next (and my personal #1) when Hillary stated with all the dignity she could muster that:

“I want to send a message to every survivor of sexual assault: Don’t let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed, and we’re with you,”

That one was spit-take worthy. The disconnect was stunning. She eventually had to scrub it from the HRC2016 website.

BevfromNYC said...

Why is anyone surprised by Pope Francis' statements. The problem is that he is always being misinterpreted by the MSM who want to believe that he is going to go full-on Liberal. They want so much for him to finally rule that abortion, rampant pre-marital sex, and homosexualty are no longer sins against God. His only change has been to temper the message with mercy with "Condemn the sin, but forgive/love the sinner." which is a very Christian thing, right?

BevfromNYC said...

As for the "shaming" epidemic going on. I guess it's a step in a direction away from "it's okay to have no shame". But...seriously.

Btw, Does anyone else suspect that Kim Kardashian (I am SO sorry to write her name here!) perhaps maybe wasn't robbed & this may be a set up/insurance scam?

BevfromNYC said...

As for Pence/Kaine debate - Pence actually acted like the only adult candidate in this whole post-convention campaign season! I didn't really watch much, but he was calm, intelligent. prepared, and most of all showed a lot of patience during the 72 (yea, someone counted) interruptions from Kaine.

ArgentGale said...

I can't say I'm surprised by any of that on the social media idiocy. As far as I know both parties in that feud have backed liberal causes so it's just more left-on-left stupidity combined with awful music. As far as the robbery victim that I won't bother naming nothing surprises me when it comes to her and her family... Didn't you describe them as a porno version of the Addams Family once, Andrew? That's pretty fitting.

On the other stuff, glad to hear that Pence conducted himself well and came across as the biggest adult in the campaign. That should help the Republicans make their case. I'm definitely not sure what to make of the Pope sometimes either. A few more statements like that and the left might just turn on him. And Hillary continues to be the one finger pointing at Trump, four fingers pointing back at her candidate, huh? It really feels like we're living in a bad political comedy these days.

Bev, It totally feels like an insurance scam to me. She flaunts a $4 million ring on camera. She lets everyone know she has it. There is a strange robbery that comes across like an insider thing. Now she tells the world that she graciously blames herself for flaunting that ring and she doesn't want Kanye to replace it because it will make her sad.

In other words, she made sure the insurance company saw the ring there. It vanished. Now she gives a reason for people not to wonder when she doesn't replace it, i.e. when she keeps the insurance money.

Add to this that Kanye whined about losing $10 million in sales of his album and being $53 million in debt from his fashion line. This sounds like an attempt at insurance fraud to me.

AndrewPrice said...

Daniel, Like zombies to fresh meat, the Delicates have invaded social media and are taking out their issues on each other. I'm fine with that. Let's hope it all ends with a mass suicide pact.

ArgentGale said...

Well said. Andrew. The sooner the Delicates burn out the better life will be.
