Yup.

More Derangement from Pelosiland

Nancy Pelosi’s constituents have turned on Silicon Valley in a big way. As reported here earlier, there’s this big movement against companies like Google and Facebook providing buses to transport their employees from their homes in the city to their Company Cult Compounds. Today, the sophisticated progressives of San Francisco raised the intellectual level of their debate by puking on a bus; not by getting motion sickness during a long bus ride, but actually climbing on top of a bus for the purpose of puking on its windshield.

As a form of protest, it’s still better than what they did to Brendan Eich.

So, I’m reading that story and I’m thinking, “The left condemns people for living in the city and taking mass transportation to get to their jobs, for causing “gentrification. But, they also condemn people who live in the suburbs and commute to work for causing ‘urban sprawl.’”

You can’t win an argument with deranged people.

Also, someone in SFO has been flipping over SMART cars. Or maybe it was just windy last night.

Speaking of Silicon Valley, watching the first episode of Mike Judge’s new HBO series would not be a waste of half an hour. (The increasingly deranged and irrelevant Roger Ebert hated it, so there’s that.)

Notes from the Angry, Stupid, Progressive Left

Filed under: Leftist Nutjobs,Post 9-11 America

The angry, deranged children of the left have been busy this week. In addition to turning hatred-fueled vitriol on a black Republican for leaving the plantation, going nanners over Stephen Colbert’s satirical tweet and the use of the term “homosexuals” to describe homosexuals, yet another call for Climate Change skeptics to be arrested and tried as heretics, and throwing a hissy-fit over America’s Single Most Important Issue — Infant Circumcision — the progressive left found some other occasions to behave consistently within expectations.

Progressive Talk-Radio Host Mike Malloy threatened to murder NRA Board Members:

“The NRA, which they’re behind this of course, they want guns everywhere….I would like to invite one of the NRA board members, and I’ll be armed, let’s just get this over with, OK? Come on down to Georgia and I’ll be packing heat and you be packing heat or whether you want to or not, I don’t give a damn, it’s up to you. And you come, meet me someplace, and all of sudden, see, we have stand your ground here, and all of a sudden I’m going to feel real…threatened by you! And I will shoot you! If I feel threatened. The law says I can. Ha ha ha ha ha, Ha ha ha ha ha!”

And, in what was obviously a bid to get a spot on Bill Maher’s show, angry, bitter, progressive leftist feminist and alleged “comedian” Laura Levites called for all conservative Christian males to be castrated.  And her fellow bitter, feminist “comedian” and Daily Show Producer Liz Winstead demonstrated complete ignorance of the human reproductive system.

So, the Government needs to force employers to pay for women’s contraceptives and abortificants because every time a woman has unprotected sex, she gets pregnant. Got it?

Also, MSDNC Host Chris Matthews said that former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld “looks like a car bomber.

Just another typical week in the Reality-Based Community of Enlightened Tolerance.

 

True conspiracies?

It’s healthy to be skeptical of conspiracy theories; especially ones whose truth would require bad science, illogical motives, the implausible silence of thousands of people, etc. For example, the Rosie O’Donnell form of 9-11 Trooferism, in which absurd claims are made that fire somehow can’t melt nor weaken structural steel, that employees spanning vast security agencies of multiple nations conspired in vast deceptions, etc.

But occasionally, a conspiracy might be real, or partly so. I recently web-surfed to this interesting video from the folks at list25.com. They claim to list 25 true conspiracies.

Note: I DO NOT AGREE with, or vouch for, their entire list. For example, their item 18 (the Nayirah al-Sabah war propaganda case) specifically asserts a CIA connection that Wikipedia does not mention at all. Or their item 15 (about polio vaccine containing a cancer-inducing agent) appears to be weakly sourced.

Still, here are three of their items which were new to me – and which did seem to be supported, when I did quick Google searches for them. If true, they would be historically interesting. If untrue, please feel free to say so in the comments (hopefully with links).

25. Did the NSA in the early 1960s propose to foment war with Cuba, by means of false terrorist incidents that would kill Americans? Search for Operation Northwoods. Again, if this story is false, please let us know in the comments. ABC News reported it as true. If it was a real proposal, then President Kennedy deserves kudos for rejecting it.

24. Did technology exist, as early as the 1970s, to assassinate people ‘trace-free’? A senate.gov page says that:

At the first televised hearing [of the 1975 Church Committee]…Chairman Church dramatically displayed a CIA poison dart gun to highlight the committee’s discovery that the CIA directly violated a presidential order by maintaining stocks of shellfish toxin sufficient to kill thousands.

Some say the point was to deliver a tiny dart, and a toxin, that would decay on impact and become undetectable, after having induced a massive heart attack. I (Jeff) would add that, if the CIA had it in the 1970s, then surely others must have it in the 2000s; which must be why some people wonder about the sudden heart attack of Andrew Breitbart. (more…)

Environmentalist Nutjobs to Native Americans: “Drop Dead, Literally, Drop Dead”

An Aleut village in Alaska offered to swap 50,000 acres of land for use as a wildlife refuge in return for being allowed to build an 11-mile gravel road to an airport so that villagers in need of lifesaving medical care could be transported to Anchorage. They have been fighting the Federal Government for thirty years to build the road and, in that time, nineteen people have died for lack of medical care they could otherwise have received.

But the Obama Department of the Interior shot them down, because Gaia.

Safe to bet Interior Secretary Sally Jewell never has to worry about being hundreds of miles from the nearest life-saving medical care.

The Aleuts should just go ahead and build the road and dare the Feds to stop them. Similar to what Democrat Chicago Mayor Richard Daley did with Meigs Airfield back in 2003. He got away with it, of course, because he’s a Democrat.

SB1062 Post-Mortem

Filed under: Post 9-11 America

So, what have we learned from this? Pretty much nothing we didn’t know already.

1. Gay people have come off looking like self-centered, lying jerks. Brutally honest here: If your attitude is “My special day will be rueeeeened unless I can force someone who doesn’t want to be there to participate,” that’s messed up and you’re a self-centered jerk. Healthy, well-adjusted people do not think that way; messed up jerks think that way.

Also, when gay activists claimed they wouldn’t force Christians to participate in gay marriages, they were obviously lying. Now, of course, they are back-pedaling, “We only meant churches and clergy wouldn’t be forced to participate.” Saying you have freedom of religion only within your church is like saying you only have freedom of speech in your living room. This once again demonstrates that the people who whine the loudest about “I don’t want other people forcing their values on me,” are the people most eager to force their values on everybody else.

Also, the gay activist left won again by being obnoxious. This does not mean they will become less obnoxious in the future.

2. The Media are a bunch of self-centered lying jerks. SB 1026 was a minor clarification to an existing law, and most certainly not a “turn away the gays” bill, but the lying liars in the MFM were only too happy to characterize it that way. They are as anti-Christian as the gay left, and made the most of another opportunity to sow rancor and social division at the expense of truth.

3. Politicians are cowardly and craven. Ace described Governor Jan Brewer as a “doltish weathervane.” I choose not to dispute that characterization.

The Arizona “gay bill” has been severely misrepresented accordin to a bipartisan group of lawyers from both sides of the gay marriage debate. It is not a “turn away the gays bill” as the MFM and the histrionic left (but I repeat myself) have portrayed it.

Everything after this is a rant; feel free to ignore it.

Another Victory in the Democrat War on Small Business

Posted by V the K at 11:59 pm - February 19, 2014.
Filed under: Economy,Post 9-11 America

Susan Clause and her husband ran a small business in Springfield Illinois selling classroom supplies to teachers and non profit organizations. The business survived her bout with luekemia, it did not survive harassment from the Democrat/Union run State of Illinois.

For 10 days last month, a state auditor camped out at their store – sitting at one of those tiny little children’s tables – reviewing three months of receipts.

And that’s where the problem began.

You see, Ergadoo is the sort of business that has many nonprofits as customers – schools, churches, nurseries.

Those types of organizations don’t have to pay sales taxes.

So, teachers, church secretaries and principals often come in bearing letters from the Illinois Department of Revenue declaring their organizations’ sales tax exemptions.

Clause and her husband dutifully record the transaction – along with their tax exemption number.

Sounds good, right?

Well, no. The Revenue Department says that’s not good enough.

Clause said the Revenue Department told her it’s her store’s responsibility to determine where the customer’s money comes from.

“How am I supposed to prove if someone comes in with a $20 bill and a tax-exempt letter whether that money is from a school’s petty cash fund or someplace else? I can’t. No one can,” Clause said.

What is it about Illinois that makes me suspect someone in the Department of Revenue or the State Legislature has a “friend” in the teacher supply business that needed a little less competition?

I am depressed now, and need to watch adorable kittens do cute things.

Is Lesbian Rape the Good Kind of Rape?

Robert S. McCain ponders that question in considering the Lesbian Left’s defense of women who have sex with underage girls.

 Those who rallied to the defense of Kaitlyn Hunt argued that enforcing age-of-consent laws is homophobic if the accused offender is gay. (ABC will feature “Free Kate” again on 20/20 Friday.) And in case you haven’t noticed, there have been several recent cases where older lesbians decided to “liberate” pubescent minors from oppressive patriarchal heteronormativity:
- Arizona physical education teacher Nicole Wooten was arrested last February on charges that she had sex with a girl in 2005 and 2006, when the victim was a 12-year-old eighth-grader.
- Texas music teacher Linda Wallace was sentenced to prison in September after pleading guilty to having had a four-year sexual affair with a female student that began when the girl was 13.
- South Dakota teacher Tonya Drueppel was arrested in January on charges that she had sex with a middle-school girl beginning in October 2012, when the victim was 13.

I would posit this is more of a progressive left thing than a gay/lesbian thing; Woody Allen and Roman Polanski get similar passes because they are men of the left. The progressive left prizes sexual license above freedom, above liberty, above sound economics.  There is a neurotic impulse to defend any sexual deviance because not accepting a sexual practice is seen as a concession to the socially conservative right.

 

Freedom of the Press Has Dropped Precipitously in the Last Few Years

Posted by V the K at 9:54 am - February 13, 2014.
Filed under: Big Journalism,Post 9-11 America

The USA now ranks 46th in press freedom … below Namibia, Slovenia, Romania and a whole bunch of other countries people educated in public schools can’t find on a map. And it isn’t Rush Limbaugh, FoxNews, or Glenn Beck making this statement; it’s the left-leaning “Reporters Without Borders.”

According to Christophe Deloire, the Reporters Without Borders Secretary General, the World Freedom Index is based on seven criteria: the level of abuses, the extent of pluralism, media independence, the environment and self-censorship, the legislative framework, transparency and infrastructure.

Investigative journalist James Risen believes the Index rightly shows the drop in American journalists’ freedoms due to crackdowns on reporters and whistleblowers and the efforts of the Obama administration and the National Security Agency to limit the amount of information America has concerning the “War on Terror” and other subjects.

“I think 2013 will go down in history as the worst year for press freedom in the United States modern history,” James Risen said.

On a related note, Mr. Obama’s FCC has launched an investigation into “bias” in the newsroom, and will be interrogating broadcasters about their editorial choices. Just ;like Mr. Obama’s IRS asked Tea Party groups about their membership lists, Facebook posts, and church activities.

Also, Rachel Maddow got so mad when a Republican called her a “cheerleader for Obama” she almost threw her pom-poms right in his face.  I don’t think MSDNC has to worry about the FCC investigating their “editorial choices.”

Subway restaurants — a chain notorious for treating their employees and franchisees shabbily — has signed on to become part of the Obama Propaganda machine. (Hat Tip: Sooper Mexican)

Michelle Obama has a new partner in her campaign to get kids to eat more fruits and vegetables.

The Subway sandwich chain will spend $41 million over three years to encourage them to eat more food that doesn’t come from a box, the first lady announced Thursday at one of the Connecticut-based company’s restaurants just north of the White House.

Note the gush at the start of this Reuters version story.

Michelle Obama and her beautiful biceps captured the attention of the fashion industry easily, but for the First Lady to get the franchise industry to warm up to the White House is a surprising hat trick.

Gag.

Keith Olbermann Doesn’t Object to Being Called a Genius

Out-of-work former MSDNC personality and cow college alumnus Keith Olbermann wants you to know, he’s a genius.

On the cover of the latest Esquire magazine is this quote from ESPN host Keith Olbermann: “I’ve never fought the word genius when people have said that about me.” In a “What I’ve Learned interview, Olbermann added, “But what it is is instinct and a set of skills that are working so fast you don’t know they’re working.”

Keith also declared “I have a leafy brain, according to the theory of the leafy brain. I associate things that many people never put together.” This sounds like someone’s brain on leaves…and a lighter.

This Glenn Beck riff on Olberdouche is a classic.

Speaking of MSDNC geniuses, let’s check-in with tampon-earrings aficionado, Melissa Harris-Perry.

Barack Obama’s Endless Racial Pity Party

From the New Yorker, apparently:

“There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president.” – Barack Obama

As though I despise Karl Marx, Fidel Castro, Martin O’Malley and Andrew Cuomo because they’re black.

Are we ready for eight years of Hillary whining that all of her opposition is because she’s a woman?

They warned me if I voted for Mitt Romney, women would be punished for expressing political opinions

Intolerance.

A famed actress is facing backlash in San Francisco’s Latino community, after she voiced support for a conservative candidate for California governor.

Maria Conchita Alonso starred in a campaign ad for Assemblyman Tim Donnelly of San Bernardino County, a Tea Party favorite who is seeking the Republican nomination.

The actress was to perform next month at the Brava Theater Center in San Francisco’s Mission District in a Spanish-language version of “The Vagina Monologues,” scheduled for a run from February 14th through 17th. The show is being produced by none other than Eliana Lopez, wife of San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi.

“We really cannot have her in the show, unfortunately,” Lopez told KPIX 5. She said Alonso abruptly resigned from the cast on Friday, given the backlash on the immigration issue.

As the motto of La Raza (lit. “The Race”) states, “Within the Race, Everything. Outside the Race, Nothing.”

So, why is the Establishment GOP so Eager to accommodate this gang of racists?

Apostasy

Former Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer has nothing positive to say about the party’s philosopher-god-king.

During an interview with MSNBC’s Benjy Sarlin, Schweitzer deferred when asked to name one positive accomplishment by the Obama administration.

“My mother, God rest her soul, told me ‘Brian, if you can’t think of something nice to say about something change the subject,’ ” Schweitzer said.

  • On the issue of Obama’s record on civil liberties, Schweitzer said the NSA revelations were “un-effing-believable.”
  • On the Obama administration’s ability to lead: “They just haven’t been very good at running things.”
  • On Obamacare: “It will collapse on its own weight.”

In fact, Sarlin said Schweitzer would only go so far as to praise Obama for being the first African American president.

Yeah, he gets a lot of praise for the melanin content of his epidermis. On every other level, he’s a SCOAMF.

Mr. Schweitzer may be about to receive some unpleasant attention from the Praetorian Guard Media and probably the IRS, too.

 

You know how I can tell Obamacare Is a Massive FAIL? Its supporters don’t call it “Obamacare.”

They aren’t even calling it the ‘Affordable Care Act” anymore because the “affordable” part has become such a tragic joke and a reminder of the lies this POS was sold under. Now, they just avert their eyes and call it PPACA when they have to defend it; trying to hide their shame behind a bland acronym.

Lefty Art “Scholar” – “Norman Rockwell Was, Like, Totally Homo.”

Hat Tip: AoS HQ

Proving the value of a Bachelor’s Degree in Art and a Master’s in Journalism from Columbia, New York Times art critic Deborah “Debs” Solomon has published a book of some sort on the art and life of Norman Rockwell, and has determined that his art was far gheyer than Robert “Bullwhip in the Anus”  Mapplethorpe.

For example, of Rockwell’s “Freedom of Speech,” Solomon writes: “The man standing is ‘unattached and sexually available. Unbuttoned and unzipped.’”

I guess a lefty can see an intense, homo-erotic subtext in a Hershey bar wrapper.

 The thing, I guess, is that the social left’s efforts to “legitimize” homosexuality require them to find it everywhere, and in everything. But sensible people recognize silliness when they see it.

 

Global Warming and the Endumbening of the Left

The circular reasoning of the Global Warming Cult goes like this: WE ARE SMART BECAUSE WE BELIEVE IN GLOBAL WARMING. GLOBAL WARMING IS REAL BECAUSE SMART PEOPLE LIKE US BELIEVE IN IT. There is no room for facts or logic within the circle. And when unfortunate facts emerge outside the circle, like a group of Global Warming cultists getting stuck in Antarctic ice after traveling to Antarctica in the middle of summer to prove that Antarctic ice was melting, the Global Warming cultists in the MFM dutifully hide such facts from the public; lest the infallibility of the Cult of Smart People come into question.

The Russian ship, Akademic Shokalskiy, was stranded in the ice while on a climate change research expedition, yet nearly 98 percent of network news reports about the stranded researchers failed to mention their mission at all. Forty out of 41 stories (97.5 percent) on the network morning and evening news shows since Dec. 25 failed to mention climate change had anything to do with the expedition.

In fact, rather than point out the mission was to find evidence of climate change, the networks often referred to the stranded people as “passengers,” “trackers” and even “tourists,” without a word about climate change or global warming.

The left claims that they refuse to debate Climate Change because they have confidence in the infallibility of science; but refusal to debate opponents… and obsessive ridiculing of opponents … is not a sign of confidence, it is a sign of fear. The left has been invested in Global Warming for over two decades, and the histrionic predictions … such as the one that the polar ice caps would be completely gone by 2012 … haven’t come true.
The left can never let go of the Global Warming myth no matter how much the real world data refutes it. There’s still a lot of grant money and carbon credit flim-flam money to be made. But even worse that that, admitting that the bitter-clinger Jesus-people were right all along would just be too humiliating for the Cult of Smart People.

How Government “Solves” Problems

Have you ever thought about how much Obamacare and the Incandescent Light Bulb Ban are alike? In both cases, some radical leftist bureaucrats decided to screw around with something that was working pretty well for most people. They created a lot of hype and hysteria to generate the perception of a problem that didn’t really exist. Big Corporations got involved with writing the legislation because they saw a chance to extort more money from consumers by forcing them to buy something much more expensive than what was already available. The Government promised a whole bunch of benefits and efficiencies that turned out to be BS. And as a result of all this, the Government is forcing people to pay a lot more for an inferior product.

Come to think of it, ethanol subsidies are pretty much that, too.
