About a year ago Ms. H. R. Puffnstuff (Clinton) called Trump supporters deplorable. It would have been nice if she would have looked up the definition before she stereotyped roughly half the country. But she is a liberal so that’s okay and even funny to her followers.
There is some good news for Hil as one of her biggest fans demonstrated the definition so there’ll be no need for getting out her bound copy of Websters famous dictionary (and you know that she still uses a paper copy). Kathy Griffin demonstrated what being deplorable is in just so many ways. Below are some headlines from Breitbart.
I hadn’t “given” this award for a while. There are probably a lot of folks who are deserving, but when I decide to do this I really have to feel it and there is generally some action that prompts me to act. In the case of Mr. Sowell it was his retirement. I looked back at how many times I’ve either read/reviewed on of his books, or used a quote of his, or embedded a YouTube video with Mr. Sowell making a great point.
Breitbart and others posted articles featuring what they consider his greatest quotes and I would prefer to let Mr. Sowell’s words prove my case that he is a True American Hero:
A recent story by Breitbart News highlights one of the reasons that I started this blog. A smallish group of elitists (I am VERY careful not to call them “elites” first because they are NOT and second because that’s what they think they are) decide to save the world. They do know best. The link above will take you to the original article, but I just wanted to give you some highlights here. You need to read the article and pass it along to friends.
In what may be the ironies of all ironies none other than the New York Times ran a series of stories critical of the Bush (“W”) administration because they lied about WMDs in Iraq. That doesn’t sound all that different than most of their WMD coverage during his presidency. You know the “Bush lied, people died” narrative. No since Bush is out of office and has been out for nearly six years (someone please tell Obama) the vulnerable NYT is excoriating the Bush Administration because they didn’t tell the American public about all of the WMDs and yellow cake, etc. that our military found in Iraq. YES THERE WERE WMD IN IRAQ!
Brietbart News posted this global warming article that was published in the LA Times in 1972.
So I recently was considering an investment and found one that had done quite well over the past few years. They did have a disclaimer; “past results do not guarantee future success.” The global warming, sorry climate change, folks need the a disclaimer; “failure of past predictions do not mean that our future ones will epically fail also unless they do which will mean that the next one will be right…the debate is over!”
November 2008 was the liberal, main-stream media’s crowning glory as they were complicit in hoisting an unknown, untested, inexperienced person upon the American people. The information about Obama’s past was out there, but was not covered in the lame-stream media who were too busy and too left-leaning to offer a balanced view of Senator Obama. Ultimately it is the fault of the American voters who cast their ballots for Obama/Biden and relied on the media’s fairy tale about the first black president. Not only was the press fawning over Obama, but they threw former favorite Hillary under the bus to support Barack and pushed very hard for Republican “maverick” John McCain to be the GOP nominee. McCain was the candidate long before I even had the chance to cast my primary vote.
No longer relegated to 60 Minutes or Dateline NBC to nab crooks, perverts, and household scammers. Extra-ordinary citizens have become empowered to expose corruption and lies that the main stream media will not. Perhaps the worst type of people are those who present a public image, but when the “cameras” are off they expose themselves among friends and like-minded people. Sometimes the “cameras”, microphones, or even cell phones are still recording and I would like to celebrate those who venture to expose the true feelings of elitists. The weird thing about Bill Clinton was that I always had this feeling that he was this type of person, but I have been shocked that there had never been a smoking gun tape showing this. Either he is genuine or is really good…I feel that he is really good.
As we limp through this arduous winter toward spring I look forward to warmer weather and sunshine. Something about shining light on stuff has a healing affect. Perhaps that is why laws requiring that government meetings and hearings are open to the public are referred to as “sunshine” laws. A common rule-of-thumb about personal behavior used to be for you to consider whether you would want your mother to read about your actions in the local paper. Today I guess it would translate on whether she would learn about your activities on FaceBook.
Aging hippies from the sixties cannot get enough protesting as they fight to maintain their anti-establishment credibility. Many of these folks, now over the trusting age of 30, are in positions of power or as they would have said decades ago, part of the establishment. Their righteous tactics to stop a war has turned into a methodology to gain more power and intimidate their targets. No group may be worse that Obama’s friends at the Service Employees International Union (“SEIU”).
News briefs are my collection of interesting news stories that may not warrant a full post…
Brief 1: It seems like the citizens of Japan want the U.S. out of their country. The UK Daily Mail reported that thousands of protesters called for the removal of all of the estimated 47,000 U.S. troops. Apparantly our troops are noisy and pollute as they protect the pacific rim. I say bring em home. Why spend our tax dollars to boost the Japanese economy. There are a lot of communities in the United States that would welcome them and the money they spend. We also need to take all of our equipment and defense technology too. While we are at it, we can take them out of Germany too.
