Lessons Not Learned
» Massachusetts’ New Gun Control Laws Sparked Concealed Carry Surge
Americans are unique among humans. Push us, we push back. Tell us we can’t have guns and we’ll get more guns.
It’s a fact that’s been proven time and again by many a leftist tyrant-wannabe. The latest and most spectacular, of course, being (THHO)Obama – the world’s most successful gun salesman in all of human history.
Nobody learns a lesson harder than a liberal retard. They still think Americans are buying more guns because we’re afraid of them or because we just love guns that much.
We’re sending them a message. It’s a message they probably won’t interpret correctly until they have an out-of-perforated-body experience.
And it’s not a new message either. It’s spelled out for them on the over 200 year old, black and yellow Gadsden flag.
Message: Leave me alone, I’ll leave you alone.
Mess with me and I’ll kill you.
It would be amusing, if they weren’t so cluelessly and dangerously earnest.
Here in the real world, smart phone apps don’t stop attacks, much less help a victim take control of a crime in progress.
Stop-Attack is a simple technological placebo that might help law enforcement identify your assailant long after the crime is over, if you have forewarning of the attack and can activate it before you are assaulted, raped, or murdered.
Fortunately, there’s already an app for that. It doesn’t require batteries, and has a long track record of working against even the most determined of assailants when applied properly, even when you have no warning of an impending attack.
But! The phone app could be an effective tool for storing documentation on why you were forced to ventilate the now decomposing assailant.
Here we have a collision of history and geography: California’s water supply is in its mountainous east, but its people are in its largely arid west. There is a great deal of desert between the thirsty people of Los Angeles and the Colorado River or the eastern Sierra snowpack. As California’s population has grown, a tangle of political interests ranging from narrow ideological environmentalism to rank NIMBYism — to say nothing of the constant desire to spend money directly on immediate benefits for political constituencies — has prevented the state’s water infrastructure from keeping up with its population.
there are a great many things making California’s current drought more difficult to deal with, prominent among them: Californians.
So much for regulations regarding the proper way to wear a military uniform. Chalk them up as another casualty of the liberal contempt for any rules that don’t suit their purposes.
Obama’s officer purge is paying off. His mentality has trickled all the way down to ROTC programs.
Credits where it is due. Despite their conspicuous shortcomings regarding the traits that make for success on the battlefield, liberals know how to destroy an enemy army. Like their Moslem allies, they know better than to try to outfight it directly; that would only lead to defeat. Psychology is the key. You destroy morale, whether by blowing off limbs with IEDs, or by forcing cadets to wear women’s clothes.
Yasir Qadhi, a Memphil Imam based in Tennessee, preaches openly about what Islam truly is. He makes no bones about thinking that anyone other than a Muslim doesn’t deserve anything and are less than Muslims. In fact, part of Yasir Qadhi’s preaching includes rhetoric that says non-Muslims lives are forfeit and their property is legal for Muslims to take in jihad, (and this would include women as sex slaves) Recently Yasir Qadhi said that “Jews and Christians filthy, their lives and property can be taken in jihad by the Muslims.”
Well den. As a non-muzzie I can only say one thing to Mr. Qadhi and any other jihadii that decides my property is theirs for the taking …
In the United States of America today, the gender of the person you have sex with is determined by your birth, while you get to pick your own gender. Ironically, the people who claim we are born gay or straight, but get to decide for ourselves whether we are a boy or girl, have no science to back them up.
The very same people who tell us the science is settled on global warming and who think anyone who believes in a God of creation is a dolt will tell you with a straight face that it is perfect fine and healthy if a two year old child believes he is a she or if a 65 year old former Olympic athlete suddenly decides to surgically trim his Adam’s apple and identify as a female. Forget the science.
McGraw has responded to the outrage by assuring everyone that he is a gun owner and that he is playing the gun control fundraiser for “community,” not gun control.
McGraw’s “plans to donate all the proceeds from [the] upcoming concert in Connecticut to the group Sandy Hook Promise have hit a sour note.“ They report that “many die hard fans” are calling out McGraw over what they consider bald hypocrisy, while others say the decision to play the gun control fundraiser proves that McGraw is just a “Walmart cowboy.”
This video may trigger uncontrollable head spin for leftists, resulting in broken necks, maybe even death … and that’s just the first good reason.
Well, yea but! All that good stuff was done by capitalists. That automatically makes it bad.
Do trigger-warning, safe-room advocates at colleges not believe that it betters people to overcome pain and move on, or is it truly their belief that no one, at any time, must ever expose a traumatized person to an opinion that differs from theirs on “triggering” topics in case they may become upset? It is impossible to control the world in such a way.
Yes, Wisconsin, the cradle of the progressive movement and home of the “Wisconsin idea” — the marriage of state governments and state universities to govern through technocratic reform — was giving birth to a new progressive idea, the use of law enforcement as a political instrument, as a weapon to attempt to undo election results, shame opponents, and ruin lives.
At the end of the ordeal, one officer looked at the family, still confined to one room, and said, “Some days, I hate my job.”
Only one officer?
It’s not the job he hated, it was the perversion of his job. His job is to uphold the law, the Constitution and protect and serve. The home invasions performed by Wisconsin police were not part of their job and by simply being there they broke oath, trust and any assumption of respect or honor.
Their real job was to go banging on the doors of the leftist politicians who sicced them on private citizens.
Cindy’s story was repeated dozens of times across Wisconsin, not just to people who worked within the Walker administration but to members of Conservative activist groups like Club for Growth. In all cases, it was the same: police show up; private property is stolen; no arrests; no charges; victims are are barred from speaking to lawyers or the press.
It was a witch hunt from Day 1
So there’s two examples of situations in which police officers should have had the moral decency, not to mention the balls, to tell their leftist bosses NO.
Everything Ms. Clinton has said recently seems to be demonstrably untrue: Only one of her grandparents, not all four, was an immigrant. One does not need to have two smartphones to have two e-mail accounts. She did not regularly e-mail her husband. One does not secure a server by having a guard on the premises. A cabinet officer does not communicate exclusively on a private e-mail account via a private unsecured server. High government officials do not themselves adjudicate which e-mails are private and which public — and then wipe clean their accounts to avoid an audit of such decision-making.
… we’d agree with those who say it looks as though it was inspired by the Cuban flag. Not just because of the visual similarities — the blue stripes and red arrows pointing right — but because it doesn’t take a big or surprising leap to make a connection between the two.
Obama did not have a plan for Libya except to let the terrorists win. And the terrorists have won.
Instead of ending the civil war, Obama perpetuated it. Libya is fragmented between a coalition of Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood Jihadists and what is left of the elected government. The only good thing that can be said about Obama’s Libya policy is that we are officially backing the government. Just not with weapons or military support.
In many of these cases, it seems that gay activists purposely targeted Christian owned bakeries, florists, photographers and even venues, just to make a stink over their special privileged rights. But is this a double standard that only goes against Christians and no one else?
“special privileged rights” And there’s the problem. There’s no such thing as special rights, privileged rights, gay rights, women’s rights, muslim rights or black rights. There is no right to marry. There is no right to internet. There is no right to welfare.
Each and every human has the same rights. No person has any right that is not a right of everyone else.
Furthermore, the constant abuse of the word ‘rights’ is an abuse of the concept. The more special ‘rights’ bestowed and/or demanded, the more diluted becomes the definition of the word itself. Until eventually the meaning of a right is nothing more exceptional than the meaning of a want. When rights are equated to wants then respect for and protection of true rights is no longer guaranteed … and denial of true rights becomes the norm.
I’m no choom-huffing, communist, race-baiting community organizer but I can say If you like your rights you can keep your rights. But only if you know the difference between rights and wants and are willing stand up to anyone who tries to downgrade rights to wants.
Only if you’ve the gonads to say “No, I won’t bake a friggin cake for you now get the hell outta my business”
“The street signs suddenly went from English to Arabic. There wasn’t a single English word on any shop or any street sign. And in fact, these little yellow signs were posted all along the edges. Jeremy said to me, ‘this is it. We don’t go past this line.’ And I said to Jeremy, ‘what do you mean? You guys are Detroit Metro. You’re the SWAT team. You can go anywhere you want. What if you get a call over there?’ He said ‘this is it, it’s hazardous for our team if we go past this line.’”
“I have seen it with my own eyes, witnessed it in the backseat of a car and it is for real. No-go zones exist in the United States.”
Christian students are banned from having Christmas parties, prayer meetings or Baccalaureate services, but Muslims are allowed to pray in school and hold Islamic proms. You have to ask why organizations like the ACLU, American Atheists, Freedom From Religion Foundation and Americans United for Separation of Church and State remain silent about what is happening in Dearborn schools.
Actually, no. I don’t have to ask. I already know.
Atheism defined is the disbelief in a higher power – a supreme being … God, gods or deity. If you don’t believe there is a god then you have no fear of godly retribution, no real reason to be upset with others who do believe – unless you think that believers pose a threat to you and yours.
The American Atheists folks would have you believe they are simply standing up for their rights and thereby protecting yours. By fighting against institutionalized religions they claim to fortify your/their right to not worship. The undeniable fact that they get their panties in wad when a Christian child quotes the Bible (in school or out) while at the same time supporting muslims’ “rights” to shut down a entire section of a school so they can bop their heads on the floor five times a day – says they lie about their core agenda.
Those who march under the banner of Freedom From Religion are not willing to completely and accurately name their organization. Otherwise they would be called Freedom From Christianity Through Dhimmitude, because they’ve never had anything bad to say about a so-called ‘religion’ that if nationally institutionalized would require desegregation of their heads and necks.
Americans United for Separation of Church and State has done what?!? to separate Mosque from State?
I said I know. Maybe I’m just guessing. Is it because these leftist groups are cowards? Scared to death (so to speak) of the cult of islam? Or do they totally disregard the religion of murder and pedophilia because they don’t consider it a religion at all? Or is it really just another facet of their anti-American agenda?
… whatever the anecdote of persecution, it typically fits under a specific theme, including hatred for churches and other Christian symbols; apostasy, blasphemy, and proselytism laws that criminalize and sometimes punish with death those who “offend” Islam; sexual abuse of Christian women; forced conversions to Islam; theft and plunder in lieu of jizya (financial tribute expected from non-Muslims); overall expectations for Christians to behave like cowed dhimmis, or third-class, “tolerated” citizens; and simple violence and murder. Sometimes it is a combination thereof.
Because these accounts of persecution span different ethnicities, languages, and locales—from Morocco in the West, to Indonesia in the East—it should be clear that one thing alone binds them: Islam—whether the strict application of Islamic Sharia law, or the supremacist culture born of it.
Nothing embodies hypocrisy like a large liberal gathering, and this year’s Earth Day celebration on the National Mall was no exception.
While tea party rallies are known for leaving their venues in impeccable condition, often cleaner than they were found, the same cannot be said for the supposed environmentally friendly attendees at the Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day rally, held Saturday in Washington, D.C.
The Social Justice Warrior whines incessantly. The Social Justice Warrior is always a victim. Victimhood is the source of his power. Lions stalk prey across the savanna, sharks flit soundlessly through the ocean and the Social Justice Warrior lies in wait, waiting to be offended, so he/she/ze/it can instantly pounce.
And by pounce, I mean start a hashtag.
Think of the kid who pushed you on the playground and then when you punched him in the face, ran off to tell.
That’s the entire Social Justice Warrior playbook.
… that kid today is an associate professor of gender studies with a fellowship in screaming at people on Tumblr.
Sure you’ve got a black woman on your team. But where are the intersexual Muslim gluten survivors? What about body positive transsexual transethnic vegan feminist ADHD survivors who hate women? Why are you such a bigot? We’re organizing a hashtag to denounce you on Twitter.
If people complain about SJWs, then they howl about the lack of diversity, how unsafe they feel and the need to destroy the hegemony of straight white men. If no one complains about SJWs, they howl about the lack of diversity, how unsafe they feel and the need to destroy straight white men.
That’s not a reaction to anything. It’s just Tuesday.
wynnie P is down with the struggle, comrades.
Paltrow openly despises capitalism and those who unabashedly pursue it. Striving for upward economic mobility is gauche in the eyes of the left-wing 1 percent. It’s so much more fashionable to show manufactured sympathy for the downtrodden than to encourage them to lift themselves up.
Only in the land of make-believe is it nobler to simulate being dependent and poor than to aspire to be successful and wealthy.
Not six types of fish, mind you. Six fish. Total.
Yes, it’s true that California is in a drought. But droughts have occurred in the past without creating such dire circumstances. Don’t let anyone mislead you. This drought is as much about the incompetence of progressivism and big government as it is a lack of rain.
Exit thought: I wonder if Cher knew this little fact when she blamed the drought on fracking.
Whether Chit, I mean Sher, [dang it!] I mean Cher knew that fact would not have made one molecule of difference in what she said or did.
An anti-fracking environmentalists is approached after work by an employee of an energy corporation. The energy worker gives the environmentalist a message: stop your protest activities immediately. He then points a gun at the environmentalist. There is a struggle. The gun goes off, shooting the environmentalist in the hand, and the oil worker runs away.
I submit that this would be a major news story. However, this story already exists, only the roles are reversed, and you’ve probably never heard of it.
I thought gun violence stories were all the rage these days! Because it doesn’t fit the narrative.
Gay marriage is not inclusive, it is yet another attempt at eliminating marriage as a social institution by deconstructing it until it no longer exists.
There are two ways to destroy a thing. You can either run it at while swinging a hammer with both hands or you can attack its structure until it no longer means anything.
The deconstruction of marriage is only a subset of the deconstruction of gender from a state of being to a state of mind. The decline of marriage was preceded by the deconstruction of gender roles and gay marriage is being succeeded by the destruction of gender as anything other than a voluntary identity, a costume that one puts on and takes off.
Destroying gender roles was a prerequisite to destroying gender. Each deconstruction leads naturally to the next deconstruction with no final destination except total deconstruction.
Deconstruction is a war against definitions, borders and parameters. It is a war against defining things by criminalizing the limitation of definitions. With inclusivity as the mandate, exclusivity, in marriage, or any other realm, quickly meets with social disapproval and then becomes a hate crime. If the social good is achieved only through maximum inclusivity and infinite tolerance, then any form of exclusivity, from property to person to ideas, is a selfish act that refuses the collective impulse to make all things into a common property with no lasting meaning or value.
And there you have it. Amazing how many current issues boil down to one final solution, eh?
The question on the table is whether the institutions that give us meaning will be allowed to retain that meaning. And that question is a matter of survival. Societies cannot survive without definitions. Peoples do not go on existing through the act of occupying space. The deconstruction of identity is also the destruction of people.
If you don’t like it, express your objections now. In 5 years you will be denounced as a bigot for not revering perverts who molest children. In terms of social decay and the mainstreaming of psychosexual sickness, it is a shorter jump from here to there than it was from just a few years ago to where we are now.
On April 29, 2014, the State of Oklahoma executed a vicious and unrepentant rapist and murderer …
The left, predictably, went five shades of bat****.
… there isn’t a requirement that an condemned criminal not suffer pain. There is only a requirement that they die
But, when a state tries to ensure that an innocent child, condemned to death by abortion without any legal process whatsoever, does not suffer a prolonged, horrifying, and painful death, the same collection of assclowns are up in arms.
What we see on the left is a set of rapidly shifting goalposts in terms of what passes for their morality. A condemned killer’s execution is protracted– horror. An innocent child, one that can feel pain, is gradually dismembered — Constitutional right. A pizza place will serve homosexuals but not cater a hypothetical homosexual “wedding” — horror. A corporate CEO is driven from his job because he supports traditional marriage — serves the bigot right. Restrict abortion — war on women!11!! Pitch your baby in a dumpster — martyr. With the left morality only exists to the extent that it supports their desired outcome. If you think you can bargain with these fascists and not eventually end up in an actual or figurative re-education camp you are sadly mistaken.
The media is forever weeping and wailing over the plight of the swarms of Muslim migrants invading Italy and the rest of Europe. We just got through stories about how the poor oppressed migrants are drowning.
Here’s a literal truth about who they are and what they intend to do to Europe.
Who are these unnamed sources who worry deeply about the charm of poverty degrading into the soulless maw of capitalist enterprise? The left speaks of poverty with the same fervent attachment with which a lover speaks of his partner’s quirks. Poverty is charming. Poverty ennobles. Poverty is Mimi from “La Boheme,” Fantine from “Les Miserables,” Che Guevara (the icon, not the mass murderer) and Gandhi (the icon, not the shamanistic wife beater). Poverty is artists struggling for their bread while crafting masterpieces.
Shrillary hates normal Americans and assumes that the more clearly we see her the more we will hate her back. That’s why she won’t let regular people come near, where they could ask embarrassing questions.
… two Transportation Security Administration screeners at Denver International Airport have been fired after they were discovered manipulating passenger screening systems to allow a male TSA employee to fondle the genital areas of attractive male passengers.
What’s funny about this is Pelosi keeps catching herself say, “Hillary Clinton is a woman…yes, she’s a woman…oh and also she’s very qualified! Did I mention she’s a woman?” But then she can’t actually list anything that makes her qualified, other than the fact that she’s a woman, which doesn’t qualify her for anything other than being something Bill Clinton was interested in at some point.
Progressives believe that their vision of utopia is inevitable. If they are right, one day all men will be sitzpinklers. The willingness of some men to vote for Obama indicates that we are already well on our way.
