Mr. Sulu Sets Phasers to Dumb

I begin to feel like George Takei is kind of an a-hole.




Hat Tip: James Taranto.

I wonder if the left is going to be able to perform any sort of introspection at all after this election. They seem to be stuck at the “denial” and “rage” stage of the grieving process. It must be harder, on the left, to question one’s own dogma because of the vast media-academic echo chamber constantly reverberating with “We are right and perfect. Our enemies are racists, misogynists, haters and bigots. Their opinions are not worth listening to.”  I wonder if leftists have the basic skills to step back and look at their beliefs with any mount of objectivity.

The End of “Broomstick One”

They can repaint, they can detail the interior, but they will never eliminate the stench of failure from the cabin of that aircraft. Whatever happens next, we can take comfort in these ten words:

“Hillary Clinton will never be President of the United States.”





We can also thank Trump for making sure someone else will never be president.


A Note from the Heartland

My sister teaches public school in Michigan, the state that put Trump over 300 electoral votes, but just barely. (I guess so many people have left Detroit that it’s harder for the Democrat-UAW Fraud Machine to pump out “votes” like they used to.) She posted this on her Facebook.

Ok- here’s the facts. I voted for me.Yep, that’s right, for *me.* Though the media and Hollywood elite continually told me that if I didn’t vote for Hilary my gay, black, Latino, one-legged, short, tall, woman friends would be doomed, I stepped back and said, “Nope, probably not; I think our society is smart enough and compassionate enough to not let that happen.” (If I’m wrong- I’ll revolt with you- and I’m packing heat.)

The scare that I have every month is what drove my vote. My bills keep going up, and my wages keep going down. My shoulder gave out in May but my son got hurt at the same time. I can’t afford to pay what my health insurance is costing me out of pocket and the deductible from emergency room visits, chiropractic appointments and physical therapy sessions. [VtK Note — Because, thanks to Obamacare, you’re now on the hook for the health problems of people who don’t make good health or economic choices. Imagine what car insurance would cost if you didn’t have to buy it until after you had an accident {pre-existing condition}] So, I have invested in Motrin, gained 10 pounds from being unable to workout and basically accepted defeat in ever sleeping pain free again.

In a year, my son will start college, followed closely by his two sisters. Although Bernie promised “Free Tuition,” I also know that there is no such thing as free in a Socialist society. Going after Big Business in a Government that is built on Capitalism and Free Trade is going to drive those businesses out (of business) Their billionaire owners can afford to close up shop and live for many generations without a second thought. But, my profession counts on employed people paying taxes. If they don’t work, I don’t get paid. Truth. So, when they moved their business away or shut it down, then my neighbors lose their jobs and the small businesses such down.

So, I’m really sorry that have been misled into thinking that your neighbors and friends are bigots and racists when in fact they are just middle America that want to live a happy life without living paycheck to paycheck. Two working adults with Masters degrees struggling because of a decade of social change (supported by a majority of Americans on the left and right) and not one iota of help to the economy.

So, yep, I voted for me. If I find myself in the same boat in four years – or living in a country where people are denied basic human rights- I will vote for change again- and again- and again as long as it takes. But I will not be tricked into thinking that my country will allow all human decency to cease because of my vote.

Kinda related (but mostly not quite worth yet a post of its own): Kids, How to Talk to Your Emotional Failure Parents about the Election:

You know what would be super cool?

Parents who could teach me coping skills. If I’m supposed to crap myself and drown in tears every time something doesn’t go my way I am going to get run over by the Social Darwinism bus before I’m 25.


Why Hillary Lost

I think this “Why aren’t I 50 points ahead?” clip is a window into the soul of our dear Lady Bug Eyes. Turn off the sound and watch for what’s in her heart.

You may have a different impression, but I see something in her that could have started as frustration except it took a dark turn, into malice. To me, she looks like she wants revenge on the world. Mind you, this is pre-election and how she asks for some people’s votes.

On to a couple of articles.

  • More on Hillary’s conference call with her rich donors.

    V touched on this earlier. Camp Bug Eyes’ spin is that the media “eviscerated” Hillary, with the connivance of stupid FBI Directory Comey who kept the email scandal alive. Of course the opposite is true: the media was super pro-Hillary, with the connivance of sleazy FBI Directory Comey who did whatever he could to deaden the email scandal.

  • Victor Davis Hanson on Why Trump Won. A good summary. The man can write.
  • Democrats head for civil war. Seething Bernie-ites want to purge the Clintonites; who in turn, blame the Bernie-ites for general childishness and not turning out to vote.

UPDATE: Trump on gays – He gets it. I had missed the following clip. Here it is, for anyone else who missed it. (more…)
