Wedding Cake Fascists Claim a Scalp

Glenn Beck interviews a couple who lost their bakery business because of the selfish intolerance of LGBTQWXYZ activists.

GLENN: You guys lost your bakery. Tell me the story quickly in your own words of what happened.

AARON: Well, you know, marriage was defined by the State of Oregon’s Constitution as between a man and a woman up until I believe it was May of this year. Our belief that marriage is between a man and a woman. And the Bible coincides with that.

You know, we — we — you know, we had a small bakery. We did wedding cakes. Birthday cakes. All sorts of cakes.
In January 2013, we had a gal come in and asked us to basically create a piece of artwork for something the Bible clearly states is, you know, not the definition of marriage. So through all this, we’ve ended up losing our shop due to some really mean-spirited tactics that was used by — I wouldn’t say all the LGBT community. Because we met quite a few of them that are really nice, but there are some that really wanted us to close our doors. And through everything that’s been done. You know, they’ve harassed the wedding vendors that we did business with. They protested. Boycotted. In fact, there’s still an only boycott on Facebook going on. And I get it. They killed the wedding end of our business and we did have to close our doors last September. And, you know, I went to back to work driving trucks. So…

A business destroyed, a life’s work ruined… keep high-fiving each other, gay leftists.

Woman shoots ex-boyfriend during home invasion:

A man was shot in the chest early Friday morning after trying to break into the home of a former girlfriend, according to police…

…she called officers regarding a former boyfriend kicking her door. Police said the woman fired two shots at the man once he made entry into the unit, hitting him once in the chest. The man fled…

The [home invasion] victim sent FOX5 a series of screenshots she said detailed numerous texts and online messages from [the home invader]. She wrote in a blog that a stalker forced her to move, obtain a restraining order and acquire a license to carry a concealed weapon…she had been sleeping with a chair in front of her door to keep her stalker out.

Via HotAir. (Note: The term “ex-boyfriend” may be an overstatement; other information suggests he was a plain stalker.)

Alan Greenspan on gold…in 2014

It’s well-known that the former Federal Reserve chair, Alan Greenspan (KBE, Knight Commander of the British Empire), was a gold-standard advocate in the 1960s. And thereafter muffled his principles, as he rose to become the unofficial king of the world’s banking establishment.

In Greenspan’s multi-decade tenure at the Fed (and, going against his former sound-money principles), he gave us the “bubble economy” we know and love. Including the dot-com bubble of the late 90s and the housing bubble of the mid-Naughties. His intellectual heirs, Ben Bernanke and Janet Yellen, have given us the market bubbles of today.

So his short, new article in Foreign Affairs caught my eye. It promises to explain “Why Beijing is Buying [Gold].” Of course it doesn’t explain any such thing. Its point wanders. Why Greenspan even wrote it is a mystery.

And yet, he did write it. In other words, Alan Greenspan, KBE, felt the need to publicly raise the topic of China buying gold, in Foreign Affairs magazine. And check out his side remarks:

If China were to convert a relatively modest part of its $4 trillion foreign exchange reserves into gold, the country’s currency could take on unexpected strength in today’s international financial system…For the rest of the world, gold prices would certainly rise…

For more than two millennia, gold has had virtually unquestioned acceptance as payment…Today, the acceptance of fiat money — currency not backed by an asset of intrinsic value — rests on the credit guarantee of sovereign nations…a guarantee that in crisis conditions has not always matched the universal acceptability of gold.

If the dollar or any other fiat currency were universally acceptable at all times, central banks would see no need to hold any gold. The fact that they do indicates that such currencies are not a universal substitute…

In essence, the world’s former top banker has just publicly hinted that:

  • Gold is money.
  • China will start buying it.
  • China will become the world’s new financial powerhouse.

How Bad Is the Economy in the Blue States? This bad.

Texas Governor Rick Perry can boast about luring the headquarters of Toyota, Occidental Petroleum, and some sixty other companies from the overtaxed, over-regulated, business hell hole of California to his state. And he can brag about. Apple, HP, Visa, and eBay all expanding their operations in the Lone Star State at the expense of California and other deep blue states.

Meanwhile, the governor of the corrupt, one-party, Democrat cesspool of Illinois is reduced to bragging about… the opening of a single Olive Garden restaurant.

“Illinois’ restaurant industry is thriving and establishments like Olive Garden are helping drive our economic comeback,” Governor Quinn said. “While we have more work to do, more people are working today than at any time in the past six years. This is good news for people across the state and it is thanks in part to companies like Olive Garden who are employing hardworking residents and growing our workforce.”

The new Chicago restaurant brings 170 new jobs to the community.

Under Pat Quinn, the state of Illinois massively increased personal and corporate income taxes (while carving out a few exemptions to keep businesses like Caterpillar from fleeing). Republicans stopped the Democrats from extending the tax increase, but businesses know it’s on the post-election agenda. The state’s pension system in shambles. Forbes ranks Illinois 38th out of 50 states for business.  Others rank it a lot lower.

California Liberals Eagerly Welcome Government into Their Bedrooms

California Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown signed into law a bill requiring explicit state-approved consent before college students can have sex with each other.

Under this standard, a sex act can only be presumed as consensual if both participants have explicitly consented. Even if no overt objections are raised at the time, if no explicit consent is obtained a sexual encounter may be defined as rape.

Henceforth, male students within California’s system of higher ed are advised to make their partners sign consent forms before each and every sexual activity; thus to please the misandrist puritans of the modern left.

So much for the fine art of seduction. That a woman should not immediately agree to a man’s sexual overtures has been quite customary throughout history; seduction has been a key ingredient in the sexual cocktail.  No more, though. If a woman doesn’t immediately consent, I suppose the man is supposed to just walk away and never breach the subject again. Leave it to the left to turn sex into a bureaucratically-managed activity subject to strict oversight by the state… like everything else.
