“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

More PC stupidity


I've heard Venessa Hudgens' name but I have no idea who she is. Apparently the Native American community does because they are furious at her for committing the unforgivable crime of "cultural appropriation" for wearing a dream-catcher in her hair in this Snapchat pic.
Who has ever visited the American southwest who didn't come home with at least one dream-catcher collectible? Exporting their quaint, primitive culture to white people is the primary source of income for Native Americans, is it not?
Besides, without hawking dream-catchers to pale faced tourists to wear in their hair, how would American Indians fund their rampant alcoholism?          ;-)

Finally, a genealogy chart that makes sense

So I always wondered how this worked, the "removed" thing when describing the familial distance of cousins you barely know from out of town. Well, here's a helpful chart to pull out at the next Thanksgiving or reunion to suss it all out. Even more helpful would be a line designating for which cousins it's not taboo to pursue sex, though I guess that's dependent on regional preferences, laws, and general attractiveness.   ;-)

Click on the chart for a bigger look-see.

Ed Snowden visits New York, virtually


Heh heh, from exile in Russia, Edward Snowden visited New York this weekend, including an art gallery and the Tribeca Film Festival, using a virtual presence robot.
It reminded me of my favorite episode of Big Bang Theory where Sheldon remains ensconced safely in bed, electing to interact with the world through a similar virtual presence device.
The feds would love to arrest Snowden so it infuriated them that he "waltzed" around New York smirking at them all weekend.

Brits reject globalism and Islamic immigration


It's a bizarro reality when Americans are embracing globalism and ceding personal liberties over to secretive, un-elected and unaccountable government goons in exchange for the illusion of security, while the British are telling their government elites to bite them and are demanding independence from secretive, un-elected and unaccountable EU goons in Brussels.

With the Brexit vote, the British have finally voted to stop their government's obsequious tolerance of rampant Muslim immigration despite liberal globalists calling them racists, I wonder if Americans have the same guts to reject our quisling leaders' plan for our country.

Et tu Ben Carson, et tu?

Trump surrogate Ben Carson, very clearly to me, seems to accept that the 2nd amendment and the reasons for it are suitable discussion topics for politicians, and more horrifyingly, accepts the possibility of changing it........

“Well, I think that the people who were you know protesting certainly feel that they are absolutely one hundred percent right, but of course the people on the other side feel that they’re a hundred percent right too. And that’s why we need to get back to a point of having civil discussions. Let’s put on the table: what is the reason for the Second Amendment? And is there a reason that we need to change those things right now? And let’s put the data on the table and let’s talk about it like intelligent people, rather than getting in our respective corners and hurling insults.”

Good grief, you'd better go out and buy some more guns and ammo while you still can. Here Ben Carson indicates how many varmint rifles each household will be allowed if he were president.

Disgruntled Uber drivers want a raise


Just read an article on Uber and Lyft, the super convenient "taxi" services you request with a phone app. The drivers are complaining that they're not making enough money to make ends meet and at least one driver is trying to organize for the purposes of collective bargaining no doubt.
These drivers can work as much or as little as they like and if there are too many drivers in an area and not enough customers to support them, then that's how the market works. Get a second job at Starbucks or something.
Organizing and forcing Uber and Lyft to pay the drivers more will only raise prices and convince would-be customers to drive their own cars, call actual taxis, or elect a designated driver of their own.
Besides, whose life plan is it to make Uber or Lyft driving a full-time job on which you try to fund a household? It's a part-time gig at most that you do in your spare time, for fun when not working at your other job(s).

Jedi Master Dustin Johnson


Clearly Dustin Johnson possesses Master-level skills in the mysterious Jedi arts. This is why it would be unwise to test his patience with silly golf rules. 

Compassion, unity, and love.......um, what?

AG Loretta Lynch (a carbon copy of Eric Holder) replied to a question about what the administration is doing about domestic terrorism. Her reply was to actually state out loud that our most effective weapons to combat terrorism are compassion, unity, and love. 

WHAT? 

In other words the administration has no intent to do anything about terrorists coming here or being radicalized here, and killing Americans. It is my accusation that this administration, and this includes Hillary, relishes domestic terror attacks because they think they can push gun control based on it. They want the attacks to continue so they can blame guns. They think a continuous stream of dead Americans is their best bet to, if not repeal, at least seriously curtail gun rights. 

Additionally, a small part of it is Obama's very personal adoration of Islam and his refusal to say or do anything contrary to full acceptance and welcome of Islam. 

Ask not at whom Loretta Lynch cackles, for she cackles at you.

Disney's new blanket for kids :-)

So I am fully aware that I'm a horrible person for sharing this new blanket Disney is marketing to kids, heh heh heh, so save the "you should kill yourself" comments, and just find the humor, even if it's dark, in every eventuality like I do.......you'll live longer.

Media guide to gun identification


TRR recently obtained this secret media primer on gun identification, from regular reader Bill. Apparently this is a quick reference guide for reporting on gun crime, when accuracy isn't really as important as scaring the public about guns.
