I'm Done With Doctor Who

Howdy folks! I wanted to post this the other day and didn't get the chance. Let me start by offering congratulations to Roger Federer for winning Wimbledon a record eight times and winning more majors than anyone else. It seems pretty clear to me that Federer is the best tennis player in the world and it's been amazing watching him.

Now for some people who are not the best.

Number One

I am done with Doctor Who. Why? The identity politics crew at the BBC has decided to cast a woman in the role. This is wrong on so many levels. For those who don't know, Doctor Who is a character from science fiction. Since 1963, the Doctor has roamed the universe fighting evil with his mind. In that time, many actors have played the role and they've made the switch by claiming that he regenerates when he gets killed, so he's still the same person even though he's different. This time, they've decided to make the character a female. That's bunk.

Here's the thing. Gender is not fluid, no matter what the left wants to claim. It is perhaps the one thing that is hardwired into us. You can substitute a black or white actor, an Asian or an alien, as there is nothing inherently "white" or British about this character. You can make him older or younger, angrier or nicer. You could probably even make him gay. But you can't make him a woman because the character is defined as male and that is how people see him. This is the thing liberal feminists simply don't understand. You can pretend to raise a kid as gender nothing, but the world is hardwired not to accept that and the kid will realize this one it starts looking to please more people than just its parents.

Moreover, this won't work. Why? It ruins the dynamics. The dynamics of the show have always been that the Doctor roams the universe with young female companions who treat him as a sort of father figure. Putting a woman into the father figure role strips so much of the dynamic, and I suspect will make it almost impossible for the companions to develop relationships with the Doctor. Essentially, they will go from father-daughter to some people on the same bus. Not to mention, the best Doctors have displayed a bumbling character that feminists don't let women play... it's sexist.

Even more stupidly, I am laughing at the message this sends. What it says is that women succeed not by writing new characters that people fall in love with. No, they don't succeed by earning the respect themselves. Apparently, women succeed by repeating what men have done. Aim high, sweeties.

I am thrilled to see that my daughter isn't buying this crap for a minute. She finds the whole thing pathetic and ruinous. I suspect the BBC is in for a little shock. Their first episode likely will have decent, but underwhelming ratings... and then the show will go into free fall as the freak show aspect of this wears off.

What a stupid idea all around.

Number Two

Speaking of stupid ideas, it looks like nothing will happen with health care. The GOP is packed with morons and insurance whores and the Democrats are holding their breath like rotten children until they turn bluer. I guess in the end I'm thankful nothing changed, seeing as how awful the proposals were. What a pathetic state our political establishment is in though when neither side has a clue what they are doing.

It's HS Class Reunion Time...

Okay, it's that time again. Hard to believe that my next high school class reunion is coming up this weekend. It will the...oh, you don't need to know which one. Let's just say that I remember when Neil Armstrong took that first step on the Moon [and okay, when John Glenn first circumnavigated the globe.] If you have never been to yours, I highly recommend it. It is a great touchstone for where you've been and where you are now. Let's just say that the movie "Romy and Michele's High School Reunion" (1997) is not so off the mark.


For years I have thought about handing out a survey because it would be an interesting social experiment with a true "control group". We are all the same age and most of us went from grade school through high school together so we have a host of shared childhood memories. It has always been fascinating to me those classmates who even after all of this time, can remember even the most minute details about our life in high school. Honestly, I kind of left that all behind and moved on to other things that I kind of left behind along the way.

But anyway, this is my problem. These are the only question that I can come up with:

"Are you where you thought you would be?" and "What is your favorite memory?"

And that is about it. My mind goes blank. So, I guess you know what I am about to ask. Help me! Who better than the smart, thoughtful CommentaramaPeeps! If you were going to go your reunion and you were going to give a survey, what would you want to know? If nothing else, it will be a diversion from 24/7 cycle of RUSSIARUSSIARUSSIA! [That sounds like a line from a '70's comedy, doesn't it?]

Please help!

Oooh, oooh, oooh*, just thought of another great question: "What was the most useful class you had in high school?" (Me: Latin)

*Another '70's comedy reference.

More Ponderings

I seem to be off on my days. Hmm. Either way, here's an article fresh from my mind! :)

(1) Shia Ledouche was just caught making rather racist statements to cops who arrested him for being flipping insane and probably intoxicated. One such statement involved telling a white cop that his wife likes black c&^k. Then he told a black cop that he would go to hell because he's black. Nothing against Shia here, who probably should be locked away to protect himself and society, but has anyone noticed that when liberals get in trouble they become incredibly racist... sexist... anti-gay? Steven Colbert recently made fun of Trump by saying that he liked to have anal sex with Putin. So being gay is worthy of contempt? Several others have been caught using the word "c*cksucker" to attack people they encountered. Or you have the Harvard administrator who used racial slurs in local restaurant reviews. The n-word, the c-word, and the gay f-word all get used regularly to attack conservatives. Interesting.

(2) "Time is running out to pass Trump's agenda!" Really? Why? His term is four years, not four months. Why does Washington seem to think that anything not done in 100 days can't be done?

(3) Similarly, the MSM is mocking the Republicans for being on a second "or possible third!" draft of their healthcare bill. This is apparently something shameful. Really? Shouldn't they be praised for working out the problems rather than berated for not coming up with the perfect first draft? Something strikes me as wrong here.

(4) I'm telling you... Mark Zuckerberg will run for President in the next cycle (either 2020 or 2024). Some people think the Rock will, but I doubt it. He may try for governor somewhere though.

(5) So the military no longer has to worry about hurt feelings and Obama's desire to lead from behind and suddenly ISIS is in retreat across the Middle East. Imagine that.

(6) Now that the economy has recovered from the Obama years and unemployment is falling to historically more normal levels again, the left is stuck trying to explain it all away. Their arguments have been crap, however, and they seem to be left with (1) it might end soon and (2) the economy may be good, but people still feel bad. //sad emoji

(7) The voice of Kermit the Frog since Jim Henson died in the 1990s was fired this week. I wonder what he did? I wonder if he will now go into phone sex?

Recent Things

Hi Everybody! Here are some things I've come across recently that might interest you.

(1) A very reputable study of the minimum wage in Seattle found that while the overall number of jobs didn't decrease after the minimum wage rose to $12 an hour (on its way to $15), there was a significant shift in who was employed. Basically, employers dumped the low end employees -- the lowest skilled who are likely to get the minimum -- and replaced them with better, more expensive employees. This makes sense. Why pay someone $15 to struggle along when you can pay someone $17 and get quality? This has the left worried. Ostensibly, they are worried about the effect on the poor. But I think they are worried that this means that employers are starting to favor the competent... a world in which their supporters fair poorly.

(2) The left is running out of anti-Trump steam. They've lost every special election. The protests have basically ended... gee, where is the women's movement that we were told was coming? Their arguments remain shrill, but have all failed to turn up anything. Indeed, after hundreds of "this could be the end of Trump," there is nothing except in John McCain's fevered mind and a desire to see a Russian boogeyman in Trump's pocket. The Democratic leadership has turned to infighting. And even people like Letterman are admitting that they've lost interest and that they think the coverage needs to change before it turns people off. Too late.

(3) Enrollment keeps crashing at the U. of Missouri. Their enrollment is down 35% since 2015, when they gave in to the demands of a group of black racists. This is killing their budget. It's gotten so bad they actually want to rent out dorm rooms during football games to make revenue. The funny thing is that even though they gave in completely, black enrollment is down 42%. So giving in didn't even help with that.

(4) The Democrats keep thinking that their problem in elections is poor polling, i.e. an inability to accurately identify who is going to vote and who isn't and which way they are leaning. I think it's hilarious that they are stuck on process. Not a word is being spoken about how to actually win these people over. Of course, the problem there is that they have nothing to offer.

(5) The average age of the GOP leadership is in the 40s. The average age of the Democratic leadership is in the 70s. What does that tell you about the future of each party?

(6) I've become convinced that Trump won't hurt the GOP in the mid-terms. Why? For one thing, the public doesn't see him as a Republican. He's Trump, and his actions don't smear other people. Secondly, the public seems to have stuck with Trump through it all right now. Thirdly, the Democrats are offering things the public actively doesn't want. The GOP at least are neutrals.

Article Coming Soon

Hi everybody, I'll get an article up soon. I literally had nothing at the moment. Plus, it was a busy weekend. I turned 47. Yay! I'm not dead. I saw a play. Booo! They cast a woman as Hamlet and lacked mastery over the pronouns. Got a big old blue ice drink from Dutch Brothers spilled in my lap... and all over my car (not as refreshing as it sounds). Got hailed on at a BBQ (ouch). And largely avoided the news. So this make take some time to find something to write.

Couple of Slippery Issues...

Yah, know. Sometimes I read stuff that just makes me crazy. As i have stated over and over on these pages, I...am...not...a...FEMINIST...I...am...a...HUMANIST! And here is why. Stuff like this. Waaah, waaah, waaaah, waaaah!
This is a serious quote for poor Emily Ratajkowski, actress, model, frankly I don't care...:

‘Oh, she’s too sexy,’” she told the magazine. “It’s like an anti-woman thing, that people don’t want to work with me because my boobs are too big What's wrong with boobs?
LINK

Here's the deal. If you want to be taken seriously and not viewed as simply a set of big boobs and a sex object, don't keep taking your top off and displaying them! It's that simple. That is just stupid. But if you want to do that, don't claim sexism, misogyny or any other -ism, or "waaah, people don't like me 'cause I too pretty and have big boobs!"...seriously. Ancient Greek women understood this thousands of years ago. If you want to control men, withhold the one thing they really value...naked women. ["Lysistrata" written in 411 BCE by Aristophanes...a man]

Now, all the men reading this, skip this next part...it's in brackets and italicized, so it's you probably anyway. I have put a magic woman force field around it that we developed in our super-secret meetings called "Ladies Rooms" in restaurants and other public place around the globe, so you can't anyway (why do you think we go in pairs?):

[FOR WOMEN ONLY/MEN NOT ALLOWED TO READ THIS PART: Just between us girls, men are simple. They LIKE seeing naked women 'cause well, men are simple. It is just biology and hardwired in their little reptilian brains. You are stupid if you think otherwise. If you want to be known for something other than your naked body, keep your naked body covered! Ironically, men will notice other things about you that they might like just as much if you do. If you want to be treated as equals, keep your clothes on and think with with our brains. Signed, Your Grandmother]

Now that we have settled that, on to something really serious...involuntary euthanasia.

Just read this and we can discuss if you want: Charlie Gard, 10 months old.

Briefly, little Charlie Gard was born in the UK with a genetic disease for which there reaaly is no hope of survival. However his parents do not want to give up on their 10 month old child just yet. As there is a possible treatment in the US, however remote, his parents have raised over two million dollars to bring him to the US. But unfortunately, not only will the UK health system not release this baby to his parents, the matter was taken up the EU. Taking the case to the EU, the unelected ruling body that has the ultimate say over life and death, ruled late last week that the parents have no right to their child and the child must be euthanized for what reason only God knows.

I have written before about this slippery slope of government-mandated euthanasia, but this is the most disturbing of late. The parents have been told by the highest court in Europe that their baby MUST die even to the point that they are not even allowed to hold their own baby boy in their arms for his last breath. All the parents want is to at least have the chance at their own expense to give their tiny precious chile the opportunity to have his short life have some value, even if that means giving his life so that humanity can be just one tiny step closer to being able to cure some other child. Not one dime would be spent by the EU or with public funds.

And even Pope Francis, the head of the all Christianity, sided at first with the UK and the EU with a statement that went something like “we must also accept the limits of medicine and […..] avoid aggressive medical procedures that are disproportionate to any expected results or excessively burdensome to the patient or the family."

Interestingly days later the Vatican shifted after this from President Trump:



The Vatican sponsored hospital requested that little Charlie Gard be released to their care at the behest of Gard's parents. Still no word whether the UK hospital or the EU will relent.

But seriously, is this really the direction we want to head with humanity?

Violence Against the Media?

A couple thoughts after a long weekend...

(1) It continues to look like North Korea is going to cause a war. They fired off another missile, knowing full well that this will eventually force Trump to bomb them. I don't know what the game is, but let's hope that China takes out the regime.

(2) Trump re-tweeted some bizarre video in which he does wrestling moves on a CNN logo image. It was stupid and bizarre but I really don't care. What interests me is that the media is screaming that this promotes violence against the media. Really? Fascinating. These are the same people who sell violence to the public as a means to fame and entertainment, yet they scream that there is no connection between glorifying violence in the media and people deciding to use violence to settle score or get famous. This is one of those moments the right needs to jump up and point out that the rise in mass shootings seems directly linked to the rise of the 24 hour news cycle.

(3) What the hell is wrong with Chris Christie? This guy closed a public beach, ordered people with homes in the area to leave under threat of arrest... and then took his family to the beach. That kind of thing may have worked for Boss Tweed, but it's definitely a problem now. What a fool.

(4) The Republicans are doing some stupid things. Imagine that. First, they are looking to kill the requirement that larger restaurants include caloric information on their menus. This is something the pubic has been demanding for a long time and people are happy about. Even more to the point, they cancelled it (temporarily) a few days before it went into effect... by which point everyone was ready to comply anyways, so why cancel it? Stupid.

Secondly, the GOP is trying to change the phone solicitation law to allow solicitors to slide you voice messages without your phone ever ringing. Imagine picking up your phone throughout the day and seeing that you have a message. You have no idea who sent it to you, but you need to check to make sure it's not a friend or an emergency. If the GOP wants to piss people off, this is the way to do it. So what's next? Repealing the law that prevents television channels from jacking up the noise level of commercials? That's working great, so let's kill it!

Meanwhile, they can't do anything useful. Idiots.

Open Thread Thoughts

Some quick open-thread thoughts...

(1) Bella Hadid just did an interview lamenting the fact that people don't like her. See, she's a very nice person who wasn't handed anything (despite being the daughter of a very rich man) and she doesn't get why people don't like her. That she would get a PR lift/tuck is no surprise after a series of recent missteps, including backing an exclusive concert on a Caribbean island which turned into a disaster and the two greatest sins of our time: (1) getting caught smoking at the MET and (2) repeated vulgar displays of wealth.

(2) On yesterday's topic, I find it interesting that the Ritz Carlton immediately responded to Jones by asking her to contact them so they could fix whatever the problem was, but Jones hasn't said anything about it since. So was her goal really to expose racism at the Ritz Cartons (//snicker snicker) or was it to lay claim to being a victim again? I'll be very curious to see how she handles it.

(3) Speaking of racism, Susan Rice formerly of Team Obama is the one who got caught demasking Trump people to they could be spied on by the Obama Administration. She could be in real trouble for this. This week, she went nuclear, claiming that the reason they have picked her as a target for investigation is racism and sexism. Right. LOL! Nope, they picked you because you broke the law, dumbass.

(3) I actually found myself physically bored by reading Elizabeth Warren yammering on today about Trump "lying to our faces." It's become like listing to a disliked uncle tell the same story you know is a lie for the hundredth time. The Democrats better get a new sales pitch.

(4) It won't be the minimum wage. There is a new study out which even a lot of leftists are bothered by. It showed that as Seattle's minimum wage rose, employment didn't go down, but it shifted. Employers started hiring more experiences people and using them to replace the bottom of the barrel. In other words, not only does minimum wage hurt the poor, it hurts those who need it the absolute most. Welcome to the world of Democratic policies.

Cry Wolf Again

People have a habit of revealing themselves. Bad manners shine through. Inner thoughts become outer thoughts by mistake. Scams that worked once get tried again until they fail. And so on. And that brings me to Leslie Jones. Who is Leslie Jones? Leslie Jones is famous for being the racial component of the remake of Ghostbuster's cast/marking plan.

Jones appeared on radar screens last summer. What brought Jones to people's attention, besides starring in a rental car ad which got my daughter asking me if she was looking at an aggressive gay black man or an obnoxious ugly woman, was her role in fauxGhostbusters last summer. And by role, I don't really mean in the film. In the film, she's the token black jammed into the Ernie Hudson role so she can say tokeny-black things. Yawn. She's otherwise irrelevant on screen. What made her interesting was when she cried racism.

fauxGhostbusters had a problem. It was crap and no one wanted to see it. So the producers decided to use an aggressive identity-politics advertising campaign. Basically, they took a handful of sexist comments from websites and spun these into a victimology campaign. "This film is being targeted by sexists who can't handle the fact that women can be in films now too!! You need to see this film or the sexists win!" Well, not surprisingly, this didn't work. So as opening day approached, the film's flaming director "surprisingly" announced that one of the characters is gay and "This film is being targeted by anti-gayists who can't handle the fact that gays can be in films now too!! You need to see this film or the anti-gayists win!" That still wasn't enough to help the film though. Shocker.

Jones dipped her toe into the water in early July 2016 by crying racism in the fashion industry. Specifically, she said that she hadn't been offered a free dress for the fauxGhostbusters premier, and no one wanted to dress her because she's black and fat. Uh huh, so all those far-left gay people are racists because they didn't give you free stuff. I see. That didn't play too well ultimately.

Well, imagine my surprise when two weeks later, Leslie Jones suddenly quit Twitter "for good" because of barrage of supposed racist comments aimed at her. A tearful Jones told us how "she was being targeted by racists who can't handle the fact that blacks can be in films now too!! They don't want you to see her film so the racists will win." She even picked out her racist, Milo Yiannopoulos, who had said the film wouldn't be very good.

What really made this interesting to me was that the whole thing seemed made up. Her timeline didn't add up and she seemed to have foreknowledge of the racism. The racism all seemed to be coming from one source too. What's more, it was oddly specific and harmless racism. It was all the type of stuff that is easily refuted and never digs deep enough or true enough to leave any marks on her reputation. Frankly, it came across as exactly the kind of "racism" the studio would manufacture to be able to scream racism but without facing anything that could actually hurt them. Said differently, it felt fake.

Then there were her claims of damage which were all out of proportion. This is a woman who made a living doing standup comedy about racism. Her routines often incorporated slavery and insults and lots of sexy. Yet, suddenly she had a thin skin. Even more to the point, she was screaming about how she needed to withdraw from the world because she had been so deeply offended by this rather bland racism and simplistic. She's said worse about herself in her own routines. So she claimed she would quit Twitter forever.

Almost instantly, this whole thing got wrapped up in the studio's campaign to sell the film. A day or so later, she got back on Twitter. Why? To discuss how she wasn't going to let them ruin the film... go see it, don't let them win! This SCREAMS of a PR campaign.

The end, right?

Well, no. A few months after fauxGhostbusters still tanked, Jones worked all of this into her routine. Here she was claiming these bland Twitter attacks were so traumatic she needed to leave the public eye and yet a few months later she had worked the whole thing into her routine. That's a bit like a rape victim telling the experience as a comedic story. That made me even more suspicious that this whole thing was a PR campaign.

Now, we have a new one. The other day Jones hosted the BET awards. Apparently, being victimized for race can elevate you from being booed as Jamie Foxx's opening act to worthy host. From what I've seen, her performance was uneven. Vibe liked one of her routines but called another "a true low." Others seem to have ignored her or similarly given mixed reviews. Well, lo and behold... the next day she tweets this about the Ritz-Carlton in Los Angeles, where she stayed:
“Wow was such a great night at the BET awards. But then had THE WORST STAY @RitzCarlton. DO NOT STAY THERE!! THEY DONT LIKE BLACK PEOPLE!!”
Victimized by the racist Ritz-Carlton? I don't believe that for a minute. The Ritz-Carlton is a premier luxury hotel which would never in a million years act racistly toward a well-known black celebrity. But you know what? This sure helps make her a victim again, doesn't it? And when that happens, people seem to forget prior sins. Adding to my suspicions, by the way, she's given zero details about what happened.

Just thought I'd update this for you because it strikes me that I'm starting to see a pattern emerge of someone inventing claims of victimization whenever it helps her career.

So Is It Possible?

It just seems that more and more we, as a nation, are becoming more and more fractured. Our leaders are just digging in their heels and refusing to work out something that might come close to working to benefit the citizens. But there is hope. I mean, watch this - if something like this can happen between two of the most contentious species, then why not us? These two animals are literally the poster-species for fighting! You know, "they fought like cats and dogs" and yet, somehow, this happens...



So whaddya say? If cats and dogs can work together for the betterment of the backyard, then it must be possible for Repbublicans and Democrats to work together for the bettermen of something, right? Well, a girl can dream, can't she?

Anyway, other than this, I got nothing. The floor is open.

The Democratic Rage Problem

The left has an anger problem. Actually, it's a rage problem. In my whole life, two things have never been considered acceptable by anyone on any side: wishing someone dead and using violence against people who disagree with you. Those are taboo in America. Not on the left apparently... not anymore.

Check this out. This post could be hundreds of pages long, but I decided to shorten it to pick only recent examples and only clear examples of leftists being subhuman:

● A Bernie Bro and campaign volunteer SHOT and tried to kill Republican Steve Scalise and a lot more people. Where oh where could he get the idea that this is acceptable? How about people like this:
● Nebraska Democratic Party Official Phil Montag was fired when recordings of him saying this about the Scalise shooting went public: "This motherf***er – I'm glad he got shot" and "I wish he was f***ing dead."

● Nebraska Democratic Party Black Caucus Chair Chelsey Gentry-Tipton said the shooting was "so funny." She didn't resign. Here is her idiocy-laced statement: "Watching the congressman crying on live tv abt the trauma they experienced. Y is this so funny tho? Yeah, having a hard time feeling bad for them."

● A professor at Trinity College declared on social media that the first responders to the scene should have let the victims die because they are white. Seriously.
● Even after the Scalise shooting, a theater group, The Public Theater, assassinated Trump in their version of Julius Caesar. Then they tried to hide their donor list so people couldn't complain to their sponsors.

● Even after the Scalise shooting (and Kathy Griffin), wife-beater Johnny Depp jokes about assassinating Trump, asking when the last time it was that an actor shot a president and then saying it was time to do it again.

● Unfunny comedian Kathy Griffin cut off Trump's head in a bizarre video. She then blamed Trump for her own actions.

● Comedian Jim Carrey supported Griffin and says he "dreams of killing" Trump.

● HIV-spreader Charlie Sheen wished Trump dead on Twitter.

● Washed-up dopehead Snoop Dog shot Trump in the head in his newest video.

● Washed-up transvestite Marylin Mason kills trump in his latest video.

● Robert De Niro says he wants to "punch Trump in the face."

● Madonna told the Pussy-head rally that she "thought a lot about blowing up the White House." A new use for the word "blow" for that skank.

● Malignant tumor and quasi-cross-dresser Mickey Rourke said of Trump, "I’ll meet him in a hotel room any motherf*cking day of the week and give him a Louisville slugger. Kiss my motherf*cking ass you b*tch punk c***sucker." So articulate!

Orange is the New Black actress Lea Delaria, who did a campaign commercial for Hillary said, of the election that she wanted to "pick up a baseball bat and take out every f*cking republican and independent I see."

● Joss Whedon, whom many conservatives wrongly thought was a conservative, said: "I want a rhino to fuck @SpeakerRyan to death with its horn."

● Late Show contributor Larry Whitmore said, "Sorry everyone, I don’t wont [sic] to give him any more oxygen. That’s not a euphemism by the way; I mean it literally. Somebody get me the pillow they used to kill Scalia, and I’ll do it. I’ll do it!"

● Bedwetter Sarah Silverman tweeted that the military needs to perform a coup.

● Former Obama official Rosa Brooks also called for a coup.

● Hollywood director Paul Schrader (Raging Bull and Taxi Driver), said he sees the election as a "call to violence" and "We should finance those who support violence resistance. We should be willing to take arms... It’s time to actualize that violence." Josh Whedon approved of this.

● But hey, journalists don't want actors having all the rage. NBC and New York Times contributor Malcolm Nance called on ISIS to suicide-bomb Trump-owned properties.

● The Huffington Post needed to pull a piece calling for the "execution" of President Trump. The author also wanted Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan and Steve Bannon executed. The guy who wrote this article, by the way, often whines about "bullying" and "extremism."

● Kellyanne Conway has been sent white powder in the mail and is under US Marshal protection

● Betsy Devos is under Marshal protection because of the number of credible threats she gets.

● Rep Tom McClintock attacked at town hall, tires slashed. 71-year-old female staffer of Rep. Dana Rohrabacker knocked unconscious during protest at Rohrabacker's office. Rep Tom Garrett, his family and his dog received repeated credible death threats. Leftist arrested by FBI over threatening to shoot Rep. Martha McSally. Tennessee woman arrested for trying to run Rep. David Kustoff off the road. Man arrested for physical attack on Rep. Kevin Cramer in North Dakota town hall.

● AEI scholar Charles Murray and Professor Allison Stranger attacked after speaking at Middlebury College. Stranger suffered concussion. Fires started to stop Milo Yiannopoulos speech at UC Berkley... and then Ann Coulter.

● Protesters in Philadelphia chanted "Kill Trump - Kill Pence" during May Day demonstrations.

● Anti-Trump protestors attack people all over the country: Pittsburgh attack, San Jose attack, Minneapolis beat an elderly man and attacked Trump motorcade, Tennessee Trump supporter attacked at garage sale, New Jersey Trump supporter attacked with crowbar, El Cajon Trump supporter chased and beat up, North Carolina GOP office firebombed, Connecticut attack. Trump supporters attacked at Cornell, a Maryland High School, a Florida High School, California High School, another Maryland High School, a Texas High School.

● An "Anti-bullying Ambassador" and Black Lives Matter supporter shoves 74 year old man to sidewalk, slamming his head against ground.

● Trump supporter beaten and dragged by car, another knocked unconscious by protestors at airport and repeatedly hit on head, another attacked after putting out fire started by anti-Trump protestors.

● A parade in Portland was cancelled after threats of violence against a Republican organization.

● The guy who killed the two guys in Portland who tried to stop him attacking a Muslim woman was a Bernie Bro.

And what about college professors? They're even worse.
● Do you remember Ugly-As-F*ck "professor" Melissa Click at the U of Missouri calling for "muscle" to inflict violence on a student reporter during their anti-free speech riots?

● "Professor" John Griffin of the Art Institute of Washington.. huh?... said House Republicans "should be lined up and shot."

● "Professor" Eric Clanton at Diablo Valley College was arrested for attacking people with a bike lock during a protest. He injured three Trump supporters.

● "Professor" Lars Maischak at Cal State Fresno tweeted, "To save American democracy, Trump must hang. The sooner and the higher, the better." He also called for money to be collected to erect a monument to honor "the Trump assassin."

● A "professor" at the U of Delaware this weekend mocked the student who ended up in a coma in North Korea, calling him "a privileged clueless white male who got exactly what he deserved." So he deserved to die for visiting North Korea? Talk about a lack of judgment and blaming the victim.
● Do you remember the attacks on Palin, where people wished her kids dead and her raped by "black men"? How about the smears against Trump's kids now? Baron is a particular target for venom from leftist celebrities.

This is just a small portion of the list. There is something seriously wrong with the left. Their leaders are causing it and their mindless drones are picking it up. Honestly, it's time to start arresting all of these people and giving them significant prison time, including the leaders. This is unacceptable in America. On the plus side, these celebrities and colleges are starting to whine about the death threats they get when they say these things... as if they deserved sympathy. Maybe that will teach them that they can't do this. But sadly, that lesson may end up changing America for the worse.

Squashing Dissent On The Left

Here's a fascinating look into the mind of a leftist. This is a quote from leftist sports rumorist Mike Florio aimed at another website which is discussing the blackballing (is that racist?) of Colin Kaepernick.

As I've mentioned before, Colin Kaepernick has become an issue for leftist sport journalists who are horrified that Kaepernick could be punished for spewing hate at the police and America and the American public. It drives them NUTS that they can't force the rest of us to accept their fringe of the fringe 10% view. And by this point, their anger has reached an insane fever pitch as they now obsess over him not being employed and any criticism of him. It's like listening to a pack of paranoids skittering around your basement in the dark as they whisper menacingly of TRUTH.

Anyways, check out this quote. Here's the set up. Leftist sportswriter Peter King runs a website. King is a Kaepernick Truther. His crappy website employs several others, two of whom disagree and accept the position of many in the NFL that Kaepernick is not being blackballed... that he sucks. Kap-Truthers like Florio can't stand this argument and attack it every chance they get. In fact, he wrongly thinks he's disproved it and now takes it as indisputable fact that these are lies. Well, today, he said this of King's website:
While it’s admirable that King allows his people the freedom to write what they want, the issues raised by Kaepernick’s unemployment are too sensitive and too nuanced for a publication to be skittering all over the place regarding whether Kaepernick can or can’t play, regarding whether he does or doesn’t want to play, and regarding whether his unemployment is or isn’t a result of his activism.
Wow. The issues surrounding Kaepernick are "too sensitive" to allow dissent. That is the fringe left mindset in a nutshell. When they see an issue as important, dissent is not allowed. Isn't that fascinating? Freedom of speech is a right for Kaepernick... but not for anyone else who might disagree with the Kap-Truther position. It's been the same attack on the league. The Kap-Truthers say that Kaepernick had the right to do what he did, but he needed to be ready to bear the consequences -- the standard American view of free speech. But once those consequences came in, the Kap-Truthers acted like the league has committed some criminal act imposing consequences, and they have savaged anyone who dared to stray from the party line. Now Florio is arguing for the suppression of the opinions of these journalists to create ideological uniformity... because he considers this a "sensitive" issue. Disgusting.

With attitudes like this, that your freedoms vanish when they think an issue is important enough to demand ideological purity, it doesn't take much to see how the left ends up with death camps and secret police, does it?

Thoughts

A few more thoughts...

● Georgia On My Mind: For those who haven't heard, the Republican won in Georgia today. This is actually quite funny. When the race began, it looked like the Democrat would win the primary because he ran against 12 Republicans who split the GOP vote. There was even a chance that he might win it outright. That would have been a shock, according to the Democrats, because the Republicans always win that district (Trump actually only carried it by 2 points). Anyways, the Democrats saw this as a chance to claim that this election showed that the public had turned against Trump. So they crowed about their win in Georgia and how this meant Trump needed to go! Hollywood types even invaded the district very smugly.

Then he didn't win the election outright. Suddenly, the Democrats said this race had nothing to do with Trump. They also started hating on each other over not supporting the candidate.

Then the real race began and the Democrat pulled ahead. The Democrats came back! They started dumping money into the race, but refused to say it had anything to do with Trump. But the polls kept getting better. By last week, the Democrat was ahead by 7-10%. Suddenly, the Democrats couldn't control themselves and they were back crowing that this was an indictment of Trump and he needed to be impeached! Yeeee haw!

And now the Democrat lost. Ha ha. I'm sure that by tomorrow this will have been just a local race.

At this point, the only race the Democrats can point to that shows anti-Trump sentiment (according to them) is a state legislative race in New Hampshire. Pathetic. This was after claiming a half dozen special elections would vindicate them, only to lose every single one. They are on a truly inspired losing streak!

● Set OJ Free: OJ is coming up for parole next month. Believe it or not, I think he should be set free. Here are my thoughts. I'm all but certain that OJ killed his wife. He should have been convicted and sent to prison forever. But he wasn't. California blew it and OJ got away with it. I don't like it, but I would like it less if we got rid of the rule of law just to get the people we feel the system has wrongly let escape.

When OJ was arrested in Nevada a few years later, I was shocked what they charged him with. If you or I had done what he did, we would have been charged with lesser crimes, and none of us would have served more than six months for what he did. It was clear to me that he had been sentenced for the murder of his wife, not the attempted robbery of a sports memorabilia dealer. Had OJ been stupid? Yes. Had he broken the law? Yep. But he deserved 3 years tops, not 33 years. Personally, I hope he gets out because I see this as a miscarriage of justice. I see it as the system trying to correct an error by making another.

● Yikes: Finally, a question. My daughter asked: What is the last really good movie I remember seeing? Honestly, I can't remember anything good in years. How bad are things in Hollywood that I can't even name the last decent film I saw!

Follow-Up and Other Stuff

I really didn't expect my last post about the dangers of overhyped presidential assassination porn to be so prescient, but shortly after some crazed Bernie Bro decided to try his hand at a real assassination attempt. As we all know, Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise (R) and three Congress police were shot. Even as Rep. Scalise was fighting for his life in the ICU, liberal pundits were crowing about how Scalise probably deserved it seeing how he was such a Republican and all. How have we come to this?

Okay, to be fair, some conservative college kids have been doing their own mischief with disrupting the NY Shakespeare's production of "Julius Caesar: A Chance to Assuage Our Violent Frustrations Legally With A Fake Assassination of Sitting President Trump" {oh wait, that's just "Julius Caesar" I am on the fence about this. I don't necessarily approve, but I am also in the camp of "what's good for the goose, is good for the gander". Well, frankly, I just don't care. Public Theatre chose this production and this concept to be provocative, so they get what they asked for. Okay, I admit it. I am a hypocrite. I am no better than the liberal pundits who are crowing about Scalise. But then disrupting an actor's performance and actually trying to kill someone are world's apart. Hopefully, ne'er the twain shall meet.

Other Stuff: When living in the "Big City", sometimes you just have to scratch your head and keep moving along. Riding on the subway every morning, I have gotten use to having my daily dose of indoctrination of "public service announcements": "Please give your seat to an elderly, disable, or pregnant 'person'" and "If you see something, say something". Now to be honest, I didn't necessarily move to NYC to divorce myself from nature because living in an urban area comes with it's own specific brand of "nature" [See: mice, rats, cockroaches, pigeons, etc.] But seriously, I did not sign up for REAL wildlife. This is just silly...


Okay, I have made peace with the pigeons and the mice, and squirrels that stick to the parks are, frankly, just downright entertaining there. But, honestly, raccoons? I didn't sign up for that! But now, our city officials are forcing me to accept racoons like they demand I accept crime, homelessness, and taxes! If wanted this much nature, I would have stayed in the "burbs"! This will not stand!!!!

The floor is open...

Liberal Thoughts For A Monday Morning

Here is what liberals are thinking this Monday morning.


Pffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff


Hmm. Ok, let's try that again. Here is what liberals are feeling this Monday morning:

● Why are vans carrying Islamic gentlemen going out of control and allegedly killing people?

● What? That was a white guy? Why are white males killers?!!

Wonder Woman was a success, why am I still a failure?

● Unemployment is down. The economy is up. Syria is going right. Putin seems contained. North Korea has STFU. Illegal immigration is down. Crime is down. What else could go wrong?!!

● It's a good thing black people have white liberals to teach them how not to be savages. If only conservatives weren't such racists, imagine what we could do with black people!

● OMG! That fat lesbian wanted to attend prom naked with a banana sticking out of her girl parts (is that sexist?) with her four year old lover and that evil white male principal said no?!! What an outrage!!!

● Oh look, someone got cancer and didn't kill themselves. They're a hero.

● I think the guy in the car next to me has too much. If he had less, my life would be better.

● OMG! Megyn Kelly let some weirdo asshole share his views on national television? Burn the witch at the stake!!!

● Everyone thinks like me.

Uh... What?

Let's talk about abortion. Actually, let's talk about stupidity in the context of abortion.

Sanya Richards-Ross, an Olympic gold medalist gave an interview the other day in which she said some amazingly stupid things. First, she said that every female track and field athlete she knows has undergone an abortion: "I literally don't know another female track-and-field athlete who hasn't had an abortion and that's sad." Then she said that "abortion is not an issue that [is] talked about, especially in sports." And she hoping that by mentioning this that she "will open up discussions."

Let's stop there for a moment, shall we? How does one respond to this?

Oh, I know. What is the link between sports and abortion that she seems to think is relevant? Should we believe that running track and field makes you pregnant? Because it really doesn't. Are we to believe that women and athletics don't mix? As much as I'd laugh if that was the logical conclusion of her point, it's not. There is no link between pregnancy and women athletes. What really seems to be going on here is that Ross is hanging out with a bunch of stupid and/or slutty women and she's mistakenly assuming that something other than their behavior is responsible. There simply is no other link. And if there was, then perhaps it's time to re-examine the feminist dogma that demands that women go into sports.

You know, I'd go out on a limb and say that I doubt it's all track and field women either. I'll bet the young women who run at Princeton or Oxford don't fall into this category. Indeed, I'm betting all of Ross's friends are probably from the Caribbean islands... the lands of poverty and ganja. Maybe that's the place to start looking for this mysterious source of "runner's pregnancy."

Wait, wait wait! As I keep reading the article, I may have stumbled upon a clue. Ross continues:
"At that time in your life when you're in college, you don't feel comfortable talking to your mom. So, a lot of information you get is from your peers. So, there's a lot of miseducation that happens to young women in college, because we're educating ourselves."
Ah, the blind leading the blind. So now you pass the buck to "sports" because "track and field made me get an abortion" is a lot more interesting headline than "my stupid ass friends said I couldn't get pregnant if I waved a dead chicken over my lady parts after having freaky sex."

Yep. That must be it... oh wait, there's one more interesting quote here. Here it is:
"It's going to sound silly to some people but, in our community, people don't want to take the pill because you put water weight on."
So you knew how to avoid pregnancy, but you chose not to because it might interfere with your athletics. That's even worse than "we didn't know because we miseducated each other". So the issue ultimately is one of responsibility (big word, I know). Ms. Ross had the knowledge and ability to avoid what she complains about, but she chose not to. She couldn't even be bothered not to have sex. Of course, it went wrong for her and now she's trying to invent a link with sports to shift the blame from herself to some nebulous "we don't talk about it enough in sports."

Sorry, Ms. Ross. No sale.

So This Happened...

As someone who grew up in Dallas after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, I may be a little sensitive about this topic. The disturbing trend of gleeful images of a dead, currently-sitting president cropping up all over the place is very disturbing. Perhaps it has always been around in private, but with the pervasion (and perversion) of social media, it has become much more of a common everyday occurance.

As a starting point, here is something you may not know. A production company was staging a revival production of a Stephen Sondheim musical "Assassins" set to open in the Fall of 2001. "Assassins" is an imagined meeting of all of the killers of presidents lead by John Wilkes Booth trying to convince Lee Harvey Oswald to go through with his deed to achieve immortality. Each assassin is featured telling his or her own story of why they did. Sounds gruesome, but it really is a wonderful and very Sondheim show. Anyhow, it was already in rehearsal with an opening in September 2001. But immediately following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the producers wisely decided to table the production for a later time because they thought it would be in very bad taste.

But something happened along the way from that moment. The first time I saw this begin to creep in was during the 2nd term of the Bush Administration. Anyone remember the hoopla over the 2006 movie "The Death Of A President"? It depicted the events leading up to and following a fictionalized assassination of President George W. Bush. It was shocking, but it sold only about 900K tickets and went by the wayside quickly. There were other images around, but the Bush Administration didn't make much of a deal about it.

Then at the beginning of the Obama Administration we quickly lost our sense of humor and lampooning and/or presenting images of a sitting President as a buffoon or dead was in very poor taste again. But it was okay as long as it wasn't a sitting President apparently. In the 1st season of HBO's "Game Of Thrones"one of the prop guys used the severed head of George W. Bush on a spike for set dressing. HBO apologized. No one is sure why the prop department had a severed head of GWB hanging around, but I am sure that was an interesting story that was never really esplained.

Anyway, now fast forward to the Trump Administration, and now artists, writers, and pundits have regained their senses of humor and cannot crank out enough words and images of a hopefully soon-to-be dead President Trump! It's all the rage, and also causing a lot of rage for those who think that it is still in poor taste and downright dangerous to do that with any President. Yeah, you all know the whole bloody severed head that Kathy Griffin made famous last week and ended up blaming everyone but herself for the end of her "career".

Which brings me to the latest outrage that has just opened in Central Park -the new conceptualize staging of William Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" produced by the very popular, non-profit, NEA-funded Public Theatre for their yearly Shakespeare-In-The-Park series. I am sure that you can easily imagine the "concept" of their newest iteration of Shakespeare's tragedy, and frankly, it's not that imaginative. Yeah, it's set in D.C. in the present day and, though not named Trump, JC is costumed in a suit and tie, and is a blond-bewigged buffoon with a Slavic-sounding, high-fashioned Calpurnia as his wife. And when JC is brutally stabbed by Brutus and crew outside the Senate in Act 3, Scene 1, it is particularly bloody. The director said the concept came to him on Nov. 9, 2016 and he ran with it. As it turns out, the big-moneyed corporate sponsors of the show were not pleased at the potential fallout and began pulling their sponsorships (a/k/a " big money") - Delta and Bank Of America so far - with all of the gnashing of teeth, screams of "Artistic freedom" and backlash that should be expected in our New Age Of Outrage on social media from both sides.

Anyway, I am conflicted about this. I believe in free artistic expression, but I am horrified at the pervasion and the ease in which we are normalizing and even for some gleefully hoping for the worst. As a child who grew up with the spector of a Presidential assassinaton, I know what happens next in that scenario and it ain't glee.

Finally... A Woman!

I despise feminists. They are so whiny and so stupid. They are a disgrace to women. The latest bit of idiocy comes from the success of Wonder Woman.

Over the past two weeks, as Wonder Woman the movie has done well -- it's made $205 million worldwide so far -- feminist chickies have started turning out articles proclaiming that FINALLY, a movie staring (and directed by) a woman has proven that women can be successful action stars!! Oh blessed day. Women can finally achieve something. The age of men is over.

Give me a break.

Let's start with this. Wonder Woman has been a hit since she came out in comic form... she was a founding member of the Justice League This is not some new female character that they invented which the public accepted. She has been a hit with the public since 1941... waaaaaaay back when men wore skins and clubbing women over the head to rape them was accepted (in feminist lore at least). So her being popular is nothing new, so claiming that she represents some sort of sea change is stupid.

Secondly, not to burst anyone's bubble, but Wonder Woman was created by a man. A pervert. So feminists claiming her as a symbol of their success is rather ironic and silly.

Third, before anyone claims that this was the first successful movie directed by a woman, let me point out that this director chickie (Patty Jenkins) didn't exactly pull Wonder Woman out of her *ss. She was hired by male-run D.C. Comics to bring a well-loved, male-created character to the screen as part of the male-created idea of turning comic book characters into big screen franchises. That's hardly taking a risk or testing new ground. Now, let's compare that to... oh, I don't know... Kathryn Bigelow, who directed the unknown story Point Break and had a huge hit. Or how about Penny Marshall directing Big? Then there's Martha Coolidge's Real Genius, Penelope Spheeris' Wayne's World, and Vicky Jenson's Shrek. I guess feminists couldn't be bothered to look those up before declaring Wonder Woman some unheard of triumph for womankind.

And what's this crap about Wonder Woman being the first successful female action hero? Did they not see Resident Evil and it's franchise? Didn't Uma Thurman star in Kill Bill? Didn't Jennifer Lawrence head the Hanger Games. I swear there was a woman in Alien... Sigourney something or other. Women have been action heroes a long time... if feminists paid attention.

Next, why are feminists drawn to women dressed in slinky costumes as role models? Seriously, what gives?

Finally, let me say this again for all the little feminists who just don't seem to get it. You make your own success. If you can't be a success until other people "empower" you, then you are useless. And if you find inspiration from fictinal character, then you're an even bigger idiot.

Crazy.

Trumped Up Headlines

With Britain looking like it plans to elect its own Bernie Sanders and commit mass suicide, let's ignore reality and have some fun.

Here is some bad news for the left that has come up in the past few days.
1. Hillary Clinton owned slaves while in Arkansas... as did Bill.

2. Comey confirms that Obama's Attorney General tried to influence FBI to drop Hillary investigation.

3. Socialists may actually take power in Britain... "good God what will we be blamed for now?"

4. Bernie supporter arrested for espionage.

5. Bernie supporter kills two people after attacking Muslims. Likely Bernie supporter steals wedding ring from dead hero.

6. Arabs care as much about terrorism as the rest of us... except the Saudi national soccer team refused to participate in a moment of silence to honor the London terrorism victims. Apparently, killing infidels isn't a sin, so participating made no sense.

7. Vegan diets cause kids to fall behind in school... drinking almond milk instead of regular milk results in children being 1.5 centimeters shorter.

8. The Wonder Woman characters was invented by some dude into S&M.
Not good, not good. But we can do better. Let's come up with some leftist headlines. What is a leftist headline? It's what you see at all the leftist news sites: lies, distortions, painful mental gymnastics, all to make their worldview make sense. Here are some examples:
Unemployment down, but white men benefit!

Employment rises, but are jobs healthy?

Trump saves children from drowning... how many will grow up to be rapists?

Fat stripper responds to troll, and we are inspired.

Bastion of free speech, Harvard cancels admissions of ten students who tell jokes the left doesn't like.

Could absence of anti-Trump evidence at Congressional Hearing be the smoking gun?
How about yours?

Little Big Shots

I was going to write something meaningful, life-changing, and totally relevant probably about Comey or something. But, I got sidetracked by turning on my TV and tuning into a show called "Little Big Shots" hosted by Steve Harvey. Have any of you seen this show?

I have watched it before and am always caught off guard by how wholesome it is. If you haven't seen it, Steve Harvey (a modern day Art Linkletter) interviews children around the world who are on the show to show off their various and sundry talents gleened from Youtube videos and Facebook postings - singers, dancers, athletes, and some are just amazing public speakers. But what all of them have one thingk in common - they are just down-to-earth kids mostly between the ages of 5-16 who are extremely respectful, wholesome, and amazingly talented.

Here is a sample from tonight's show:



The voice of angel! And I love that the interpretor for the non-English speaking children are other children. It's just a wonderful.

And this kid...a future President?



It's just heartwarming, and hopeful for the world's future. With all of the bad, negative crap in the world, it's great to see really something postive and wholesome that families can watch together without fear. And, from the advertising, there is going to be a version hosted by Steve Harvey with the over-80 crowd showing off their talent that just shows that "It ain't over until it's over!"

Anyway, back to reality. The floor is open.

Reality Sucks... Liberal Style

With Kathy Griffin trying to explain her crapulence by obliviously doubling down on it, the weekend apparently became open season for liberals whining that reality sucks. Enjoy!

● Crime and Punishment 1: Interesting article this weekend about the 230 rioters ("Black Bloc Anarchists") who were arrested in DC for "protesting Trump" during his inauguration. This is a group who thought they could burn cars, shatter windows and engage in a running fight with cops and pro-Trump protesters. Apparently, these moronic "anarchists" (read: socialists) thought this was acceptable, and that all they would get would be a slap on the wrist if caught. But now they are facing up to 80 years in prison for felony rioting and other charges... and the government is serious about sentencing them too. Whined one:
"I am wondering if my 24th birthday next week will be my last as a free person. [ed. boo hoo hoo] I've never in my life had such a painful and stressful experience. There are no words to convey the severity of this. ... I'm pretty shocked by the impact it's had on my personal life. It seems that innocent until proven guilty is a falsehood - all the way from the prosecution and police to the people who had previously supported me in my activism. It's hanging over my head the entire time, which makes it really challenging. It hinders your ability to plan your life."
Maybe you shouldn't have set out to "Make Racists Afraid Again"? Maybe you shouldn't have started fires, damaged buildings, attacked people? See, idiots, this was all avoidable if you hadn't chosen to act like Nazis. The funny part is that it never occurred to her that they would get punished. Even funnier, she never expected her friends to abandon her because of her "activism." Reality sucks.

● Crime and Punishment 2: A Bernie Sanders supporter with the world's most stupid name "Reality Winner" was arrested this weekend because she got a job with a contractor who worked for the NSA and she decided to leak classified material to her friends in the media to "Resist Trump." Now she's facing at least 10 years in prison. Of course, having done this and filled her social media with vile hate for America and Americans, her parents are now claiming that she meant no wrong. Naturally, the parents of such a turd are also suggesting a conspiracy... and that is why your kid is going to prison, shitheads. Reality strikes again.

● Colin Kaepernick: The leftist media is really going into a tizzy that no one will sign Colin Kaepernick. The reason is obvious: they don't want to believe that they can actually suffer sanction for their fringe views, and the fact no one wants Kaepernick shows them the truth. They aren't giving in to reality yet though. One idiot wrote this on the weekend:
"Owners may be shying away from signing Colin Kaepernick because they fear a fan backlash, but it’s also worth considering how many fans a team will gain if it signs Kaepernick."
Uh, that would be none. Kaepernick's support in the NFL was about 40 players out of 1,900. The NFL suffered a huge fall in ratings. Articles supporting him are generally shouted down at a 10-1 rate. The owner of the Giants said they get mail from people demanding that he not be signed, even though they've never considered it. What proof do you have that he isn't poison? Oh but wait...
"Kaepernick revealed on social media today that he’s been inundated with fan mail. 'I want to thank the people for the support! My parents sent me these photos yesterday and continue to receive dollies full of mail in support! I couldn’t do this without the people, I love you,' Kaepernick wrote."
See! See! Kaepernick self reported that he gets fan mail, which proves the public really loved him! Wee! What? There's more? Oh, I can't wait.
"That’s not the first piece of data that shows Kaepernick has a big fan base: NFL Shop revealed in September, shortly after Kaepernick began his national anthem protest, that Kaepernick’s jersey was the league’s top-selling piece of merchandise."
Uh, yeah. That was for one weekend and could have been as little as a couple hundred jerseys. Since that time, he doesn't even appear on the list anymore of players worth noting for their sales. So that idea is wishful thinking. But wait, there's more...
"Kaepernick is a polarizing figure, but being polarizing isn’t necessarily a bad thing. By definition, a polarizing figure has a lot of people who support him, and in Kaepernick’s case those people will be eager to cheer for his team this season."
Wow. First, that's a tautology. You defined him in a way that caused your conclusion. Secondly, the modern definition of polarizing does not imply that anyone supports him, it now means controversial. Third, Hitler was polarizing. Does that mean he was popular too? Idiot. Accept the truth, dude. Your buddy is fringe of the fringe, and his fringe is unpalatable.

● Gaying Kids 1: I’ve come to realize that Yahoo is essentially staffed with fat women with low self-esteem, who think that if they can just put out enough articles about fat women responding to trolls on instagram or gay couples getting married that their own miserable lives will suddenly have meaning. Staff meetings must be a joy. Anyways, one article Yahoo featured prominently this weekend was about a rotten mother who is taking pictures of her “son” in dresses because it gets her off... uh, to show she brainwashed her kid into thinking gender stereotypes don’t matter. She claims all she wants is tolerance and to not be accused of abusing her son. Of course, she is abusing her son, but that’s a matter for another day. What I found interesting was that Yahoo pimped this story as "important" and tried to sell the idea that this woman's sick view was now widely accepted, yet they made it impossible to comment on the story. Every other article on Yahoo’s page was open to comments, but not this one. Why not? Because despite trying to push sh*t like this as normal, the fat leftist chicks at Yahoo know it is not normal and they don’t want the public bursting their bubbles.

● Gaying Kids 2: Today, there is a bunch of whining over an ad by Benetton which shows three little gay boys with their arms wrapped around each other. At least, I assume they're gay because heterosexual boys don't look or act like these three. Anyways, the caption said, "Sorry ladies, no girls allowed." Which makes even more sense when you get they are gay. Anyways, the League of Whiny Women went insane. "How dare you exclude girls!!" Of course, this was the same league who were outraged that a man tried to see "Wonder Woman" at a women's only showing last week.

● I'm Confused: Finally this. A bad dogma collision. Somebody wrote the N-word on Lebron James's house in Beverly Hills last weekend. Of course, this became all about racism because white people never get insulted. Then Jason Whitlock of FS1 Network stepped in it. He said that racism against rich blacks isn't racism. This makes sense when you look at the hierarchy of leftist hate thought. Racism is always bad, right? Wrong. Racism against conservative blacks is not racism. It is, in fact, deserved. What's more, rich people are evil and need to be killed for their crimes (except Warren Buffett and Obama). So it makes sense that a leftist would conclude that rich-hate trumps hate of racists. Ergo, race crimes against rich blacks don't count.

The left lost their minds... because racism is always bad (except when it isn't) and they would never suggest that hate is acceptable (except when they do).

Even more interestingly, one idiot "journalist" twisted this to say what Whitlock was doing was creating controversy to move his network to the right because vague forces are pushing the sports networks to the hard right. So think about that: to move a network to the right, a racist black journalist made a point that we should hate rich people even if they are black. Does that sound right wing to you? Didn't think so. But that is how leftists twist reality to avoid their shameful views when they are exposed in the light of day.

Losers.

Heartbreaking to Heartwarming...

There is some wisdom in not jumping to conclusions before you have all or a least most of the facts first. It's hard these days to not think that the entire world is filled with bad people doing bad things. But sometimes if you just wait for the facts to come out, it can really turn out to be something quite different. It can turn from heartbreaking to heartwarming and downright funny.

Here is an example.

An Air Force veteran and his family recently moved to San Antonio, Texas, and put out little American flags on display in their new garden in honor of Memorial Day. Soon after the little flags were placed, they started to disappear leaving only the tiny poles in place. The family was heartbroken that people could be so mean and were upset that maybe they had moved to a hostile place.

Fortunately for them, their new next-door neighbor had been filming the culprits on her cellphone and showed it to the family. Busted, they thought. They could bring these thieves to justice! Well, their heartbreak and revenge soon turned into something quite different. It turns out the evil, flag-stealing culprits were two resourceful squirrels industriously building a nest in the top of a tree for their little squirrel family and were just using the flags as readily available materials! Clever little rodents!



The neighbor told them that she saw one of the squirrels tear off the first flag and, so amazed by its cleverness, she started filming the rest of the theft. Ten flags in all were ripped from their little poles with great effort by these two little thieves and used to make quite a colorful little nest in the tree.

So the moral of this story is that sometimes when you think the worst of people, it could really just be squirrels building a nest.

Liberals Being Stupid

Liberals are morons. There's no doubt about it. Their ideas -- if you can call them that... perhaps "feelings" is a better word for it -- will bankrupt nations, destroy lives, create chaos, encourage the evil, discourage virtues, and just generally mess everything up.

● Liberals in California want to impose a single payer health system on the state. To give you a sense of how stupid this is, consider this statement from Modesto Republican Tom Berryhill:
“If we cut every single program and expense from the state budget and redirected that money to this bill, SB 562, we wouldn’t even cover half of the $400-billion price tag.”
Even socialist, wealthy Vermont couldn't pull this turkey off. But believe it or not, I'm all in favorite of it. Why? Because I like watching liberals sh*t the bed. Moreover, it would be good for the rest of us to have a nice little beacon of disaster to point to when the idiots in our own states try to do the same thing.

● Beyond that, Maxine Waters and her posse want to impeach Trump. I'm all for that too. It won't go anywhere but it will once again highlight just how obsessed and messed up the Democrats are. That could help a good deal with the midterm elections.

● There was apparently something called the "March for Truth." This was a group of anti-Trump types who held rallies in a handful of cities demanding blah blah blah truth! This was so ineffective that it was even ignored by leftist news cites. Yahoo didn't even mention it until two days later and then in one tiny article down the page. It sounds like the left has lost its energy. It also sounds like after making "truth" and more specifically "trutherism" into such a bad thing, a march for "truth" probably won't provide the best optics. Neither will the signs with the four letter words. Keep marching, idiots.

Paranoid Time!

Come one... come all... show us your most creative paranoias. For inspiration, think of Kathy Griffin. Poor, poor Kathy's press conference devolved into a toxic mix of rage, self-pity and total obliviousness to her crapulence. But from this festival of hate did come one endearing thought: "There's a bunch of old white guys trying to silence me!"

Really? So a white chick is claiming racism when the public gets upset at her pretending to cut off the head of a white President. Hmm.

Well, I believe you Kathy. I really do. See, I've always been convinced that a council of black elders has been trying to silence me my whole life. Yep. These five black men, each of whom weighs 300+ pounds and wears a purple or yellow or orange striped suit, has been stalking me my whole life. Every time I try to cut off someone's head for fun, they wag their filthy cigars at me and stop me. Booo! I'm suuuuuuuch a victim!

So I'm with you Kathy. Oh, I'm not as ugly as you and I'm not a hate-filled little troll like you, but I do feel your pain. What kind of world do we live in where the public can deny us their support just because we engage in hateful displays? Is there no First Amendment anymore? Sigh.

Anyways, Kathy needs support. So tell us, who's stopping you? Give us your best paranoid enemies list! Do it for Kathy. :D

"Only in New York, kids, only in New York!"

Let's just dive right in...

First up, June 11, 2017 - Annual Puerto Rican Day Parade:

Throughout the year, NYC has a series of annual parades to celebrate the diversity that is makes up the mosaic of our population in here. We have parades for everything from Gay Pride to Tartan Pride to St. Patrick's Pride. All to emphasize the great mosaic that is NYC. But this year is particularly special.

On June 11, 2017, NYC will honor it's first terrorist in the annual Puerto Rican Day parade! At the urging of the NYC City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, NYC will be honoring a man who once had a hand in bombing us - Oscar López Rivera. Oscar López Rivera had been in federal prison since 1981, convicted for "seditious conspiracy" to overthrow the the government of the United States, in relation to his membership in the Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional, or FALN. Between 1974 and 1983, the FALN claimed responsibility for more than 70 bombings in New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C. The bombings caused millions in property damage, dozens of injuries and five deaths.

Their most famous was a bombing at Fraunce's Tavern in lower Manhattan that killed 4 people including police officers and maiming dozens of other. [For you history buffs, Fraunce's Tavern was where Gen Washington bid farwell to his troops.] Barack Obama commuted his 55 year sentence to 35 years of this convicted felon in the 11th hour of his presidency and he was released from prison. Mark-Viverito flew down to Puerto Rico to greet him on his exit.

As of today, most if not all of the corporate sponsors of the parade have pulled out including the Police Commissioner and the Puerto Rican police societies. Even the Governor of Puerto Rico is condemning Lopez' honor. Amazingly Gov. Cuomo, Sen. Schumer, and a myriad of other city/state officials have come up with last minute "scheduling conflicts", so they can't march. Only Mayor DeBlasio and Mark-Viverito who are proud to march along side a known convicted terrorist. It will interesting to see what happens next as many in the Puerto Rican community are declining to attend because they never wanted this great celebratory parade to be tainted with politics.

**UPDATE** Rivera has declined to be honored by the Puerto Rican Parade and will just march as a regular participant. Though DeBlasio had decided before this announcement that he would march in the parade, but not with Rivera. Mark-Viverito remains silent...finally.

Next up: Alamo RoadHouse/Feminist discrimination with Steve Miller aka @redsteeze...

Oh, come on this has been going on for days on Twitter. Alamo Drafthouse, a longtime movie theatre/bar-restaurant (originating in Dallas in the '80's) opened up a chain in Brooklyn where they announced they would be having a special Women's Only showing of "Wonder Woman" - No Men Allowed. Well, at least one man (Steve Miller of Twitter Blue-check fame) took exception to the advertising and bought a ticket. Well, you'd think that he had killed a puppy! The screaming/shouting/ranting at him on Twitter went on all through Memorial Day weekend and into the last few days. (Well, until Kathy Griffin took over...) How dare a man want to...well, you can imagine. Miller's point is that you can't demand equality on one hand and discriminate on the other. Yeah, it's just a movie and before it was just a cake or a florist or the Little Sisters of Charity. What Miller did most was just help point up how intrenched the "Rules of Thee, BUt Not For Me" have become for our lefty friends.


Now for the finish - Continuing Saga of the Bull, The Fearless Girl, and...a Pissing Dog??? Oy...

Okay, now this was really funny. Well, at least for me. So remember the Wall Street Bull statue issue a few months ago? Yeah, the one where one of the big Wall Street investment firms decided, as a marketing gimic to add a statue of a little girl standing up against the Bull to...oh, I don't even care what for. It became a thing about gender equality or something. The Bull artist was upset because it destroyed the original vision of his artwork. Lawsuits ensued




Well, anyway, this weekend, another clever artist decided to add his own piece to the mix to show solidarity to the original "Bull" artist. He added a paper mache dog hiking his leg on the the Fearless Girl...


By the way, the dog didn't last long, but it sure was funny. I was hoping someone would add either a "Dog Catcher With Net" or a "Truant Officer" next. Heck even a "Matador With Cape" would work...

So to end, I am stealing the fitting tagline from famous NY Post Gossip Columnist Cindy Adams: "Only in New York, kids, only in New York!".

Make Up Your Mind, Hillary

Hillary has given another interview at a tech conference in which she firmly places the blame on why she lost on everyone and everything but herself. It's ridiculous. Indeed, Hillary assured us that she took responsibility "for every choice" she made, "but that’s not why I lost.” Right, it's not me... it's everything else. So what is everything?

Here are some of the things Hillary blamed:

● Russian cyberattacks which somethingsomething and won the election!

● Trump conspired with 1,000 Russian "hackers" who "filled Facebook with lies." They "weaponized" internet lies. Oh, and she thinks it was the Trump people who showed the Russians how to do this:
“The Russians, in my opinion ... could not have known how best to weaponize that information unless they have been guided ... by Americans. I think it’s fair to ask, how did that actually influence the campaign, and how did they know what messages to deliver? Who told them? Who were they coordinating with, and colluding with?”
Right, because no dirty foreigner can understand Americans.

● The Democratic National Committee’s data operation was crap. She said they had no usable information, and the Republican technology was better.
"I get the nomination, I'm now the nominee of the Democratic Party. I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party. I mean, it was bankrupt; it was on the verge of insolvency; its data was mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong."
● The letter former FBI Director James Comey sent to Congress about her private email server a week before the election cost her critical ground.

● The media covered the email scandal "as if it were Pearl Harbor."

● Sexism/misogyny

● And today, she added a new one: the “very broad assumption that I was going to win.” It's not clear how this caused her to lose, nor did she bother to mention that her entire campaign was about inevitability, but sure, why not. The fact people thought she would win is why she lost... for some reason.

So SSDD. She won't take any blame. It's all someone else's fault. It's the fault of broad social trends, a vast right-wing conspiracy with the Russians, and her allies (i.e. the FBI and the Media) actually investigating her crimes and not smearing Trump like they were supposed to.

And this is the woman the left wanted as President?

Smoke and Mirrors on Crime

I read an article the other day that really bothered me. It had to do with legislation meant to discourage attacks on cops and it really hit me that the left is playing a shell game. Observe.

The article in question was an AP article reporting that many states are adding laws to their books (or beefing theirs up) which make it an extra crime to commit a crime against a police officer. In other words, while the underlying crime is already illegal, these laws add an extra punishment if the victim of the crime is a police officer. The intent of laws like this is to raise the penalty for crimes against officers to make the world safer for the police by making criminals more likely to submit when confronted by the cops. Most states already have these laws but with this idea of a war on cops, these states are beefing them up.

Naturally, the left is outraged. Black Lives Matters types are whining that this is sending the signal that states want the cops to oppress them, and the article reflected that. It let these comments go without question. It never pointed out that these laws apply to things like assaults, not protesting, and that it's easy to avoid being punished by these laws by simply not committing the crimes. It also took as fact that there is an epidemic of white cops killing blacks, even as the article could only identify two examples -- the guy in Minnesota and Ferguson, Missouri. And it questioned whether there is a war on cops even as it mentioned the 21 ambushed in Dallas (while ignoring Tennessee, New York and other places) and the fact 143 cops were killed last year. So 2 dead blacks is an epidemic, 143 dead cops is doubtful it's anything.

More importantly, the article noted that: "Police deaths on the job have generally declined over the past four decades, from a recent high of 280 in 1974 to a low of 116 in 2013." Then it said that because of this, it was doubtful if these laws were needed or would help. But this is a shell game.

Starting in the 1970s, conservatives began fighting back against two decades of liberalism in the criminal justice system. Those laws were put into place and the crime rate fell. These laws included harsher sentences... harsher sentences for specific crimes... harsher sentences for crimes against officers... etc. And the more conservative laws got put in place, the more the crime rate fell. What the author does here is identify the falling crime rate without mentioning that conservative laws are the most likely cause for it. He then says that because the crime rate is already falling (apparently by magic), there's no evidence such laws are needed. Basically, he's ignoring cause and effect so he can claim that people proposing more of the cause are proposing something that has no effect.

It's a bit like dieting to lose weight, pretending that the weight you lost was just a natural trend of things, and then telling people who suggest more dieting that there is no basis to assume that dieting works.

And the more I thought about this, the more I realized that this has been the liberal coping strategy with criminal laws my entire life. When the crime rate was soaring under their laws, it was just a random thing. When it was falling under conservative laws, they ignored the blatantly obvious connection between conservative laws and lower crime. And now that the crime rate is so low, liberals argue against conservative laws on the basis that the crime rate is so magically low that we don't need them... the very laws that cause the crime rate to fall. This is intellectual fraud. And you see it here, where the author flat out ignores the connection between laws protecting cops and falling cop deaths and then turns around assumes that the beefing up of these laws will prove ineffective.

What's more, check this out. One of their "experts" said that these laws "reek of political pressure to do something symbolic as a way of expressing solidarity with police officers," as if that's a bad thing. She then says, "The problems that need to be solved are really problems on the ground. They're not gaps in the statute." Yet, when it comes to guns or rape or other causes they like, it doesn't matter how packed the statute already is... "somebody needs to do something!" and that something is more laws to make even more illegal what is already illegal.

So they think that extra laws do deter conduct, unless it's laws that protect cops.

Thoughts?
