Every now and then, there comes a point in time where there is just too much to comment on in detail, and too little time in which to do it. With that in mind…
My wife had the TV on yesterday and had the DNC convention on. With my head under a sink fixing a leak, I believe I heard first that Acting Chairperson Donna “Gave the Questions to Felonia Von Pantsuit” Brazil call for a motion to suspend the rules to allow a verbal vote. Then after Tom Perez was elected, he called for a suspension of the normal rules to all for his rival Keith Ellison to be nominated for the new position of Deputy Chair.
Is it just me, but are the Democrat Party elites continuing to bend the rules to suit their own needs? Let’s ask Bernie how he got screwed over, or the independent Democrats that were ignored by the corporate-driven DNC.
Just in case we have forgotten how tolerant and inclusive the past Democratic Party was:
If the acceptance speech of the newly elected DNC chair is any indication of what is in store for the American people, then sit down and hang tight because there will be more demonstrations, protests, and obstruction coming.
If the Black Lives Matters crowd is so wrapped up in keeping black people alive, then why aren’t they protesting Planned Parenthood? Planned Parenthood probably kills more black babies in one year than the police and gangbangers could in ten to fifteen years (need to work out the math on this one, but you get the idea).
I understand that the Academy Awards are tonight, which are the latest in a long line of award shows for the entertainment industry’s actors, producers, directors, and who knows what else. A partial list includes:
- The Golden Globe Awards
- The S.A.G. Awards
- The Emmy Awards
- The People’s Choice Awards
- Hollywood Film Awards
- MTV Movie Awards
- Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards
- Critics’ Choice Movie Awards (a.k.a. the Broadcast Film Critics Association Awards)
- Teen Choice Awards
- Kid’s Choice Awards
- People’s Choice Awards (because Teens and Kids don’t count apparently)
- Independent Spirit Awards
- American Film Institute Awards
- BAFTA Film Awards (British, so it doesn’t really count either)
- Various Critics’ Association Film Awards (19 separate U.S. cities or states listed)
- Film Festival Awards (five in the U.S. counting Sundance, plus don’t forget Cannes)
And instead of various spoiled, drunk or drugged up actors thanking their fans and the people that really elevated their sorry egos to undeserved heights, these people decide to spend their time making inflammatory political statements, preach what people should do to combat global warming while they use private jets to visit their many mansions around the world, or lament that refugees need spaces to live (but not next to their mansions).
I’ll pass on watching these shows – I have better things to do – like watching paint dry…
Mayors and Governors that claim that their towns and states are sanctuaries for illegal immigrants are violating their oaths to follow the laws of the United States, and their promises to serve the people that elected them. How does spending tax dollars to support an illegal activity serve the public good?
The media got all up in arms when some of the reporters were not invited to a press conference. Then someone said this:
Yep – Goebbels would be proud…
There are those that still want open borders and admit all refugees from countries and areas of conflict without any investigation on that person. With the problems that Europe is having with just this policy, and terrorist organizations stating that they would imbed their “soldiers” in the refugee stream, this graphic from Mike Ramirez says it all:
Why is it from year to year, especially around election time, that we hear that Social Security is going bankrupt, but never Welfare?
The same goes for election fraud – we only hear the concerns about ineligible or dead people voting around election time. The time to clean up the voter roles is between elections, not during.
Also, the statement that people cannot get ID’s for elections is 100% BS. People need valid IDs for opening bank accounts, obtaining a driver’s license (in most states), and collecting Welfare.
Finally, note that India has a population of over 1.25 BILLION people in 2013. Every single eligible voter has an ID that must be presented when voting, and that absentee voting is not allowed. Furthermore, I understand that when a person has completed voting, they must put their thumbprint on the voting form with indelible purple ink that cannot be washed off. This is all done to insure that there is no voter fraud or ballot stuffing.
If a third-world country like India can insure the integrity of their elections, then why can’t a country like the United States use a similar scheme?
Every time that someone makes a statement that offends a Liberal, they start screaming about hate speech. However, if a Liberal makes a statement that offends someone and they’re called on it, they scream about their rights to free speech. A tad hypocritical, don’t you think?
This past election, the Democrats lost the Electoral College, but won the popular vote. They’re still throwing hissy fits about it, and quite frankly, are beginning to resemble an extended version of a two-year olds temper tantrum. May we kindly remind them of the following:
This is the genius of the Founder’s vision for this country. If the tables were turned, they wouldn’t be screaming at all.
NOTICE: All anti-gun or gun control enthusiasts –
The right of the American People to own arms is just as much a civil right as the right to free speech that you are so fond of using to insult and belittle others. Kindly remember that the writer Robert Heinlein stated:
“An armed society is a polite society.”
I fully intend on being polite and respectful until the situation demands that I not.
Finally, something just for fun –
