Hattie McDaniel is Gone with the Wind

Yesterday, HBO pulled 1939’s “Gone with the Wind” from its shelves.

Since Hollywood is so eager to cancel Gone With the Wind, let’s remember Hattie McDaniel, the first black person to win an Academy Award, the first black person to attend the award ceremony as a guest instead of a servant, who took heat from the NAACP for the roles she chose, and who, upon her death in 1952, was denied burial in the Hollywood Forever cemetery due to racism in Hollywood. A marker commemorating her life and work was not placed in the cemetery until 1999 – 47 years after her death.

“I’d rather play a maid than be one.” -Hattie McDaniel

“Harsher Punishment for Parole Violators…and World Peace”

I had fully intended on following up that last COVID post with a reflection on the ridiculousness and ineffectiveness of masks and social distancing, but like everyone else, I’ve been a bit distracted by the nihilistic anarchists burning our major metropolitan areas to the ground.

Ben Shapiro of the Daily Wire said it best in an op-ed on June 3, 2020:

…virtually all Americans agree with the following two propositions: first, that it is evil for a police officer to place his knee on the neck of a prone suspect struggling to breathe for eight long minutes; second, that breaking store windows, stealing televisions and shoes; beating business owners; and attacking police officers is wrong.

I have asked dozens of friends on social media who have publicly supported chaos the following question: “What is the endgame here?” At worst, the response is “equality”, which is about as vague as Miss Congeniality’s “world peace”. Many of them declined to answer, and the remainder have said change needs to come from the voting booth. I can only assume that they took Hillary Clinton’s words to heart in 2018, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. That’s why I believe if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and the Senate, that’s when civility will start again.”

Translation? Vote Democrat, or be wrong.

I took a look at the 26 American cities (and unfortunately, I did not save the article that I got this list from) that first  had protests-turned-riots. Together, these cities represent 31,680,073 people, or 10% of the US population¹ See my data tables: Riot Summary

  • These 26 cities are located in 21 states.
    • Nine states (43%) voted for Clinton in 2016, 12 (57%) voted Trump.
    • The cities in the nine blue states represent 68% of the population of these cities experiencing riots, and 6% of the overall population, in case you were wondering why the Electoral College is so important.
    • Ten governors are Republican, 11 are Democrats. Racial minorities make up 9.5% of these 21 governors. 14% of the governors are women (all Democrat).
    • These 21 states have 42 Senators representing them in Congress.
      • 45% Republican
      • 55% Democrat
  • Of the 26 cities:
    • 73% are led by Democrat² mayors
    • 23% are led by Republican mayors
    • 4% are led by Independent mayors
    • 19% of those mayors represent a racial minority
    • 30% of those mayors are female.
      • 11.5% of those mayors represent a female that is also a racial minority
    • The Chiefs of Police in these cities are:
      • 61% white
      • 38% black
      • 15% female/85% male
    • Representation in Congress
      • Given how large some of these cities are (New York, Los Angeles) and that there is often more than one representative for a city, I went with the first name that popped up when I typed “New York, NY” at GovTrack.
        • 93% of the Representatives in Congress are Democrat; 8% Republican.
        • Representation is split evenly between men and women, white and minority.
          • 31% are female minorities
          • 19% male minorities
  1. Population and demographics, as well as the historical breakdown of mayors and governors by political party as represented in the chart, all courtesy of Wikipedia. Yeah, not my favorite source either, but I don’t feel like sifting through the US Census Bureau’s webpage.
  2. Most mayoral offices explicitly state that they are nonpartisan, but the candidates for office will make their official political party preference known.
  3. According to an article by the National Research Center, women generally make up 15% of police forces but only 3% of top leadership rolls. Ergo, female chiefs are overrepresented in rioting cities.

According to the US Census Bureau, the racial demographics of America are:

White alone: 76.5%
Black or African American alone: 13.4%
American Indian and Alaskan Native alone: 1.3%
Asian alone: 5.9%
Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone: 0.2%
Two or More Races: 2.7%
Hispanic or Latino: 18.3%
White alone, not Hispanic or Latino: 60.4%

Female persons: 50.8%

Now, I’m not a mathematician or a statistician in any way, shape, or form, but here’s my takeaway from all this.
Between posting black squares on social media and defacing war memorials dedicated to black soldiers, I’m being told that the voting booth is where lasting change will occur†. In cities that are rioting, minorities have equal or greater representation in public office when compared to the general racial makeup of America. Women in general are under-represented in the mayor’s office but have equal representation in the House of Representatives. (I did not look at the male/female demographics in the Senate, only political affiliation.) Despite voting for Clinton or Trump in 2016, Democrats hold the majority of leadership positions at the local, state, and federal level.

Here’s the fun part. Of the Democrat-controlled cities:
Atlanta, GA has been run by Democrats since 1879.
Boston, MA, Chicago, IL, and Houston, TX, have been run by Democrats since 1930, 1931, and 1933, respectively.
SEVEN other cities experiencing riots have been under Democrat-control for 50 years or more.

If the way to “fix” systemic racism (another topic for another day) is by voting Democrat, and Democrats have already controlled 11 of the 26 cities studied for anywhere between 50 and 150 years- HOW IS VOTING DEMOCRAT GOING TO FIX ANYTHING? By this philosophy, these cities should be utopias. Instead, Houston, TX (since 1933), Chicago, IL (1931), Minneapolis, MN (1978), Nashville, TN (1951††), Oakland, CA (1979), Albuquerque, NM (2017†††), Memphis, TN (1982), Detroit, MI (1962), and St. Louis, MO (1949) all make USA Today’s list of “25 of the Most Dangerous Cities in America”. 

I believe this is the very definition of insanity.

 

†Assuming the voting booths aren’t burned to the ground. If you can get out to protest, you can get out to vote.
†† Party affiliation of the mayors of Nashville is unavailable prior to 1951.
††† Since 1977, Albuquerque has had only two Republican mayors: 1981-1985 and 2009-2017. The other 30 years featured Democrat leadership.

“It’s not an endlessly expanding list of rights — the ‘right’ to education, the ‘right’ to health care, the ‘right’ to food and housing. That’s not freedom, that’s dependency. Those aren’t rights, those are the rations of slavery — hay and a barn for human cattle.” -Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859)

Unmasking the Political Weaponization of SARS-CoV-2, Part I

Part I: Legalese

Ladies and gentlemen, we have been had.

Seventy (70) days ago, on March 10, 2020, Governor Charlie Baker of Massachusetts publicly declared that the Commonwealth was under a State of Emergency with regards to the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, more commonly referred to as COVID-19 or simply “coronavirus”. The following Sunday, March 15, the order was extended to prohibit gatherings of more than 25 persons, and forced the closure of all dine-in services at restaurants and bars, effective March 17. Fifty-eight (58) days ago, on March 23 and under the direction of the Massachusetts Department of Pubic Health, Gov. Baker issued a two-week “stay at home” order, closing all businesses not deemed “essential” and effectively halting all medical care unrelated to COVID-19 in anticipation of an onslaught of critically ill patients.

The onslaught never materialized. And today, on May 20, 2020, that “stay-at-home” order has been extended six weeks past its initial expiration date, and Massachusetts citizens are being fined for having the audacity to reopen their businesses in ways Not Approved by the governor.

Boston, we have a problem. Sam Adams, John Hancock, and Paul Revere are probably turning in their graves to see us lay down and accept this blatant violation of our God-given rights.

Before I even attempt to get into the problem of mandating closures and masks and plexiglass at registers, I need to point out something very, very important that I’m willing to stake my livelihood and good name that most citizens of the Commonwealth are unaware of:

Once a state of emergency is declared in Massachusetts, there is virtually no limit on the governor’s power, including his ability to “temporarily” suspend our Constitutional rights of assemblage and travel. I put “temporarily” in quotation because there is also no expiration date on a declared state of emergency in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The powers of the governor during a state of emergency are enumerated in the “Civil Defense Act”, Acts of 1950, Chapter 639. This includes:

for the protection of the public, take possession (1) of any land or building, machinery or equipment; (2) of any horses, vehicles, motor vehicles, aircraft, ships, boats or any other means of conveyance, rolling stock of steam, diesel, electric railroads or of street railways; (3) of any cattle, poultry and any provisions for man or beast, and any fuel, gasoline or other means of propulsion which may be necessary or convenient for the use of the military or naval forces of the commonwealth or of the United States, or for the better protection or welfare of the commonwealth or its inhabitants as intended under this act.

Translated into 2020 terms, the Commonwealth can seize both the means of productions and the goods and services produced, including things like UPS trucks and the contents of the local Wal-Mart. The provision does include “reasonable compensation” for said seizures, but we all know what you and I think is reasonable differs from what Beacon Hill considers reasonable.

Further:

Whoever violates any provision of any such executive order or general regualtion issued or promulgated by the governor, for the violation of which no other penalty is provided by law, shall be punished by imprisonment of not more than one year, or by a fine of not more than five hundred dollars, or both

The (only) good news in all this is that according to MGL Part I, Title II, Chapter 17, Section 2a, “Upon declaration by the governor that such emergency has terminated, all powers granted to and exercised by the commissioner under this section shall terminate.” Presumably this means that when the governor does get around to ending the State of Emergency, all orders issued during that time (such as mandatory masks and social distancing) are also null and void.*

Why do I take the time to spell all this out, when I usually limit myself to my open personal opinions, based on established fact? Because up until about three weeks ago, when I found a Facebook post by a local lawyer explaining some of what I have written above, I was woefully ignorant regarding the ways my own elected officials could control my life and liberty without my explicit consent, to the point of bypassing the negative-rights enshrined in the Constitution. Then-State Senator Barak Obama was correct when he explained in a 2001 interview that, “generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties – it says what the states can’t do to you. It says what the federal government can’t do to you. But it doesn’t say what the federal government. ..must do on your behalf. And that hasn’t shifted.”

I am not okay with the steps the state has taken to suppress our civil liberties in light of the threat of the Chinese coronavirus. I think in the coming weeks and months, We The People are going to need to stand up and loudly remind the likes of Baker, Brown, Whitmer, Cuomo, and Newsom that they are not without limits and that we citizens are not without recourse.

*I’m not a lawyer, nor have I verified this presumption with a lawyer. This is my understanding of the law as written.

The COVID-19 Pandemic Has Jumped the Shark

When the World Health Organization and President Trump declared that the novel SARS-Cov-2 had reached pandemic levels (which only means that a large number of people in multiple geographic locations are affected; it has nothing to do with the severity of the illness), I was, like most Americans, concerned. My family, like most, took extra precautions such as washing our hands more frequently, keeping bottles of hand-sanitizer in our bags and cars, and making an effort to avoid anyone with a sniffle.

Since then, the entire response to COVID-19 has spun completely out of control, to the point that I refuse to take it seriously any more.

Moving the Goalposts and Medical Claims Fraud
In March, the White House, in conjunction with the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control (NIH and CDC), released their plan for “15 Days to Slow the Spread”, which encouraged extra attention to hygiene and staying close to home in order to keep medical services from being overwhelmed by patients with this novel (new) coronavirus. This was accomplished. With a few exceptions in New York City and the greater Boston area, hospitals not only were not overrun, but ended up furloughing and even laying off staff as revenue dropped. Now, two month later, we are told that shutdowns must continue until either a cure or a vaccine is found.

This, my dear friends, is nonsense.

The first influenza vaccine was developed in 1940  and is widely available today. Even still, the flu infects millions and kills tens of thousands every single year. There is no cure, and even Tamiflu is useless if the disease is not caught in time.

It has also come to light that hospitals may be committing fraud by listing COVID-19 as the principal diagnosis in cases where having the virus is second to another illness such as cancer. This basically means that if a patient is admitted to the hospital because of symptoms from their cancer, and doctors discover that the patient also has coronavirus, they will put down “coronavirus” on the claim form before listing the “cancer” diagnosis. This is a huge deal for Medicare patients, because Medicare pays hospitals a pre-determined rate for services based on that first-listed diagnosis (Diagnosis related groups, or DRGs). Medicare will pay $13k for a patient with COVID-19 ($39k if the patient is put on a ventilator) as opposed to maybe $5k for a patient with pneumonia. Ergo, hospitals have a financial incentive to get as many coronavirus cases as possible.

Conflicts of Interest
Dr. Fauci dismissed evidence that a combination of hydroxychloroquine, azythromycin, and zinc could be an effective treatment. Instead, he pushed for Remdesivir. The difference? The first three drugs cost pennies, the Remdesivir thousands. He claimed he was concerned about potential side effects from the HCQ, conveniently ignoring the fact that any medicine comes with risks and side effects. (See Dystonia. It Sucks.) I’m sure this is only a coincidence, but Dr. Fauci also holds several patents related to HIV/AIDS treatment. Fauci is also a part of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Global Vaccine Action Plan” where he serves on the Leadership Council. Bill Gates has been very vocal in the last several weeks about developing a coronavirus vaccine.

Inconsistent Practices Encroaching on Civil Rights
Why is it okay for people to “social distance” in grocery stores, but not parks and beaches? Why are people being fined for attending church services in their cars?Why are counties releasing inmates from prison (a quarantined community if there ever was one) and yet a Texas mother was thrown in jail for operating her own business? “We the People” are routinely threatened with prison or fines for trying to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads.

Masks are the newest example of virtue-signaling. Just a few weeks ago, the CDC recommended that masks not be worn because, frankly, they’re pretty useless. Today, anyone who dares step outside without being suffocated in their own CO2 are threatened with fines, prison, and the social media equivalent of being tarred and feathered.

If homemade cloth masks are truly effective, why not hand them out to the prisoners and keep them behind bars where they belong?

Governor Cuomo Should Be Arrested for Manslaughter
We knew early on that the elderly and those with pre-existing systemic conditions (diabetes, congestive heart failure, ESRD) are most at risk, and yet Gov. Cuomo of New York refused to let nursing homes turn away patients who tested positive for the virus, allowing the virus to spread like wildfire. Some patients who were admitted even came with their own body bag.

Hyperbole and CNN
“If it saves even one life!” is hysterical cow manure. Are we going to take cars off the road because 30,000 or more are killed in motor vehicle accidents each year? Of course not. Abortion facilities remain open, while cancer patients have been forced to delay or forgo therapies and surgeries that could have prolonged or even saved their lives. People have died from heart attacks and strokes because they were too afraid to seek medical attention in the emergency room. That type of hysteria comes directly from the nightly news.

As if that weren’t enough, on Thursday, CNN is hosting “A CNN Global Town Hall: Coronavirus Facts and Fears” featuring none other than teenage climate change expert Greta Thunberg. That link is to MSN, by the way, not Babylon Bee or the Onion.  Do they really expect the average American, who is more concerned with making sure he still has a job so he can keep the lights on, to take them seriously?

Stop letting the mainstream media, left-wing politicos, and neighborhood Karens scare you into thinking this is the end of the world.

It isn’t. Not even close.

Now go wash your hands.

May God have mercy on our souls.

Today, New York state passed a landmark law protecting unlimited preborn infanticide… or abortion, as it’s more commonly called. The bill, which goes under the euphemistic “Reproductive Health Act” effectively allows for abortion at any time for any reason, and removes abortion from the state criminal code.

It’s a sad, sad day in Mudville.

The law, aimed at protecting access to abortion in the event that Roe v Wade is overturned, is nauseating. I won’t go into it here, but you’re welcome to read the text of the bill HERE. Matt Walsh, professional teller of truths, also has a spot on op-ed, You Can’t Give A Lethal Injection to Criminals in New York but You Can Give It to Infants

At this point, the abortion issue has become a part of a larger problem. The world, and western nations in particular, have a cultural sickness. We live in a world that celebrates death and is nonchalant (at best) about life. Suicides, murders, and general tragedy dominate news media for days at a time. Positive stories involving children and families are seen as “fluff” and “feel good” rather than a goal. The traditional nuclear family is the exception, not the rule. Fatherless families, children born out of wedlock, siblings with multiple fathers or mothers, and rampant, no-fault divorce are the new normal.

Overturning abortion is a noble and lofty goal, but it will mean nothing if we cannot get to the root of the problem. We need to challenge ourselves to change our thinking, to see motherhood and fatherhood as joyful callings rather than heavy burdens. We need to recognize pregnancy as the miracle that it is, and not an inconvenience at best, or a disease at worst.

How can we do this? Support.

We need to nurture a culture in which a loving father is the norm. We need to get away from the Homer Simpson stereotype of fathers being lazy, stupid, and worthless. How many times on television and in movies do we see a father figure as the hero? How many young boys can watch television and say, “I want to be like him!” Instead, we get the bumbling idiots -loving fathers, perhaps, but idiots just the same. Homer Simpson, Phil Dunphy (Modern Family), Bob Belcher (Bob’s Burgers), Hal Wilkerson (Malcolm in the Middle) are just a few that come to mind.

As Chris Rock said, “A n**** will say some shit like, “I take care of my kids.” You’re supposed to, you dumb motherfucker! What are you talking about?” What kind of ignorant shit is that?”

Instead of devaluing fatherhood, we need to elevate it. Paternal leave. Nor referring to time spent with the kids as “babysitting” or “stuck with the kids”. No more commercials where Dad has no idea how to care for his own child and is desperate for Mommy to come home. Dads matter. One of the most beautiful illustrations of this concept can be seen in “soldiers come home” video compilations. If you can make it through those without crying, you should call your psychologist. Should socioeconomic proofs be more your thing, look up statistics involving absentee fathers, crime, poverty, and soaring abortion rates in the black community since the 1950s.

Motherhood deserves its own admiration. The Mommy-Wars need to stop. For mothers that choose to or must work outside the home to provide for their families, childcare needs not to be so prohibitively expensive, nor should it be the responsibility of the tax payer. Mothers who choose to be stay-at-home moms should likewise be supported in their choices.

The last giant issue is adoption. Did you know that adoption in the United States can run families tens of thousands of dollars? We often hear that adoption is the solution to abortion, but how can it be at that cost? How many couples are desperate to have children, but are unable to conceive and unable to adopt because of the outrageous financial burden? When an abortion costs around $300 and adoption $37,000, are we surprised when there are 638,169 abortions (2015) to the 135,000 adoptions? (Including the roughly 670,000 in foster care).

Bottom line: Before we can change the laws, we need to change our culture. Otherwise, what’s the point?

More on Charlottesville

Maybe it’s just because I’m tired of being a bigoted, racist, trans-Islam-homophobe who hates my own sex, but frankly, Charlottesville has pissed me off. And the more things I see from people “on the ground”, the angrier I get, because what I’m seeing and hearing from people who were there, the more the mainstream media is just plain wrong.

Why were the cops just standing by?
Why was help refused to people who asked for it?
Why was a black man standing with a known conservative (conservative, not alt-right) group threatened with arrest when, blinded by pepper spray a person from antifa sprayed in his face, he asked for assistance?

From a friend:

I’m sad that anyone on either side is being roped in to this divisive hate. Antifa doesn’t actually want to stop white supremacist they want to draw blood and create chaos in the guise of revolution. Leftist labeling everyone right leaning as racist and suppressing free speech is proof of their shallow cause.
Alt right groups are just as happy to bait and cause conflict and certainly there are many racist among them, but not everyone protesting the removal of historical monuments are racist. I certainly don’t live a hate filled lifestyle and I’m completely against erasing our history because it “hurts” people’s feelings. Neither groups cultist agendas hold the best interest of our country in their ideologies. I wish news media would stop giving them cookies for their actions. Even negative publicity encourages and recruits.

This post will hopefully be updated as further videos and photos from actual protesters are released.

Snowflake Identification 101

A few weeks ago, a friend who describes himself as being fully in the Bernie encampment made the following statement, and I can’t say it any better than he himself could.

For exhibit A, I present the exact conversation as it took place on social media: Names and faces have been blocked to protect privacy. We shall call my snowflake opponent…The Bumble.q1 response1

 

 

response2

My opponent in Blue, myself in Red. I highlighted the parts of his statement in blue that I thought were critical.

 

So here I was, watching an adult male (from here known as “The Bumble”)  asking a group of other adults their feelings on the first month of Trump’s administration. Do they feel that he is doing a good job thus far? Are we faring well as a country? What do you like and what don’t you? Is he effective?

In my response, in red, I gave my own, personal answer, and the reasons why I think Trump and his staff are completely able and effective for the rigors of the next four years, despite all the loudmouths in liberal government and the media. As you can see from the screenshots, my differing opinion was quickly shot down with “Your information is wrong on so many levels and points. I’m sorry you feel this way.” I gave him plenty of opportunity to refute with his own opinions and information, but he ignored the opportunity for an open discussion and instead took his toys to another playground, a typical play of snowflakes leftists.

The Bumble had no problem telling me I was wrong, but he could not defend himself against what I said, so he just unfriended me. Now he won’t see my abhorrent opinions encroaching on his newsfeed. He needn’t worry that I might jump out of the bushes wearing a ballgown in red, white, and blue trying to cram a “Make America Great Again” hat on his head.

One of the prime ways to identify a special snowflake: If they can’t get you to agree with them, they will do their best to humiliate you and shut you down. Commonly, this will be accompanied by accusations of racism, misogyny, classism, homophobia, xenophobia, and islamophobia, and, God forbid, being an old, white dude. At least our founding fathers get to be dead white dudes and don’t have to listen to this nonsense.

Vocal conservatives: keep your eyes peeled as to who might be unfriending you throughout the year. Might save you on stamps come Christmas.

The Dawning of a New Age

I realize I haven’t written anything really political around here lately, and for good reason. It sends my stress levels though the roof and I’ve got six different doctors telling me to take it easy. On the other hand, they’re trying to get my blood pressure out of the toilet, so maybe this is a good thing.

 

Donald J. Trump is now our 45th president. To all the whiners and special snowflakes, allow me to offer some advice:

Shut. The fuck. Up. We, the silent majority, somehow managed to get through eight years of Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm Mmm Mmm), you will get through the next four (minimum) of President Trump. You know what? It feels really good to be able to say that. President Trump. He was not my first choice in the primary season. I voted for somebody else on Primary day. As Trump pulled a Secretariat and blew past the competition and I started looking into this hard-assed business man from NYC, I began to think, “You know what? Maybe this is the kick in the pants that the general public NEEDS so desperately right now.”

There are only two stipulations to become president of the United States. 1. You must be a natural-born citizen, and there are zero questions that Trump is. He was born in the Bronx to a first-generation German-American and a Scottish immigrant who became an US citizen on her 18th birthday. The second requirement states only that the office-holder must be 35 years of age or older*.

What does this mean? It means anyone who meets those two requirements can run for the highest office. It does not need to be a career politician, or a lawyer, or former ambassador. It does not need to be anyone with political experience. A farmer could run, or your local UPS guy, so long as they have the backing to launch a major political campaign. IMHO, I think a Joe Schmoe would do very well. Someone from the middle class who KNOWS what people want and need, rather than a person who’s been gazing down on us peons from their Ivory towers for most of their adult lives.

That’s why I trust the Donald to frankly, get shit done. He’s been there. He know’s what it’s like. Yeah, he may have grown up with money, but he knows what do to with it, and he’s not afraid to get down and dirty to get the job done. This country has taken some real wrong turns, and I’m surprised we haven’t landed at Albuquerque yet.** I firmly believe that he truly loves this country and is going to do what it takes to make it the reigning superpower, instead of the laughing-stock, on the world stage. Where others have led from behind, he will be leading the charge, in whatever form it takes.

So God bless President Trump, and God bless America.

How To Be a True American in these Troubled Times

An Editorial From an Average, American Citizen, after reading these results, that I’d been given the results to share.

“If Hillary was the right woman/candidate to run this country, the results of last nights election would be different. If Trump is as unfit to run this country as people claimed he is, he would not be president-elect at this very moment.
Its ridiculous that people are already throwing around impeachment as an option because they dislike Trump, especially when he hasn’t done anything to warrant the word “impeachment” (which btw Inauguration Day isn’t till January 20th so you might wanna actually come up with legitamate grounds to have Trump impeached before you start babbling stupidity) to be thrown around…now HRC is a different story but she is not/won’t be president so we don’t have to even worry about that.
I’ve seen people already say they’re hoping Trump gets assassinated and that his whole family dies out…and these are the SAME people spewing ignorant remarks about how we as a people “chose hate over kindness. Chose taking a step backwards over progression”. It makes me sick.
Whether you voted for Trump or not, he is our future President of our United States. WITH that title, comes the duty of the people who live in the USA as a whole to respect the POSITION, even if we don’t particularly love the person holding it.
And I’m sure it will happen, because everyone is entitled an opinion but please do not take this status and attack me and what I just said. I will not be answering any negativity so don’t waste your time. This was simply a post to say whether we like it or not, this is how it is and we as a people need to respect the Presidency and stop running our mouths about things that maybe should have happened, things we wished hadn’t happened, but simply did/didn’t. So move on and be proud to be an American. ”    Fin.

With great thanks to my guest speaker, you rock it girl. If anyone else thinks them worthy of submission, I’d be interested curious to read your writing from both sides of the aisle. 

I’ll add subject matter, form, etc. Go get those pens going, kids.

The Sky is Falling, According to the MSM…

…that’s Main Stream Media (FOX, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, etc.) for those of you in Rio Linda.

The language contained in this post is not safe for work, your children, grandmothers, or small housepets. 

Allow me to explain why, exactly, I’m not freaking out, triggered, or otherwise offended that audio was released over the weekend from a decade-old conversation with Access Hollywood with then-host Billy Bush. Driving around the studio backlot, the following conversation occurred:

 

H/T “lifestyle USA” https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvO7KnVG4_kteS50PCYJ4Ng for the video.

Anyway, you get to hear what he said. In a private conversation, between two men, Donald Trump made comments about a woman’s figure and how he would like to, in today’s slang, “tap that”, and given the opportunity, grab her where the sun don’t shine.

Did he physically touch her? No. She shot down his advances, despite a trip to Jordan’s or something like that. All Trump is guilty of is mouthing off (something he VERY much needs to work on, which everyone on both sides of the aisle have been saying throughout the entire campaign) and irritating the Establishment.

Folks, this video would have never come to light if the Clinton camp wasn’t Very Worried right now. This tape wasn’t “just” found. Somebody somewhere has been sitting on it, waiting for a big news story (like the so-called October Surprise) in order to distract voters from more important issues. I mean, who needs Julian Assange when we can get away with saying “pussy” over and over and over? C’mon, even Joss Whedon managed to slip the British equivalent into “The Avengers” (2012), and if you know THAT but know nothing about the execution of an Iranian nuclear scientist who was killed after HRC mentioned his name on her unsecured email server…get your priorities straight.

This video is naught but a big shiny object and the MSN couldn’t care less about what Trump says about women. Proof?

 Can someone please explain to me what a half-exposed woman on a beer bottle, a scantily clad (likely underage) girl, a 3/4 naked woman, a chick wrapped in wire, and boobs (MY EYES ARE UP HERE) have to do with selling beer, bad food, perfume, pruning shears, and video games, respectively? Oh, sex sells, right. That’s why we could easily see ANY of this on a billboard on the highway or in Times Square.

I could get into all the rap music that glorifies the mistreatment of women, but this is a blog post, not a novel.

Our options are thus: vote for a guy who said something stupid ten years ago (and yeah, the stuff I hear in the halls of school on a daily basis are worse) or vote for a woman whose husband is a KNOWN serial, sexual deviant and will be in the presence of thousands of potential victims who may not understand that it is okay to say “NO” to the First Gentleman, for fear of upsetting Madame President, who in turn has a history of covering up her husband’s awful behavior.

It’s times like this I think back to what Lewis Black said when Bill Clinton got impeached: “You got a blowjob! We want a blowjob! Have a cigar!”

Everyone has said it. No one cares. He just happened to get caught on tape saying it.
