Dear Conservatives, Supergirl Thinks You’re Stupid and She Doesn’t Want You Watching Her Show

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 06:00:51 +0000

Last week the premiere episode of season three for the CW network’s Supergirl debuted, and it had a very clear message for conservative viewers: you are stupid, and you should go away. As season three kicked off were treated to an evil, sexist, capitalist, Trump-like real estate developer who hates poor people and told that only “morons” don’t believe in global warming, all in a show that treats all white males like villains. Well, all but the one who is a geeky, tech guy who is afraid of his shadow, bad with girls, and uncomfortable in his own skin (Last(image)



Clinton Cleared Before Investigation Complete? OPEN THREAD

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 00:47:23 +0000

From FoxNews: Comey drafted letter on Clinton email investigation before completing interviews, FBI confirms The FBI released documents Monday proving former FBI Director James Comey began drafting a letter regarding Hillary Clinton’s email investigation months before conducting several key interviews, including speaking to Clinton herself. The document release was titled “Drafts of Director Comeys July 5, 2016 Statement Regarding Email Server Investigation Part 01 of 01.” The contents of the email were largely unclear as nearly all of it was redacted. The now-public records show the email titled “Midyear Exam — UNCLASSIFIED” was sent by Comey on May 2, 2016,(image)

NBC Ignored Weinstein Story? OPEN THREAD

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 19:05:49 +0000

From FoxNews: NBC News is under fire inside and outside of 30 Rock for passing on the story that has turned Hollywood on its head – movie producer Harvey Weinstein’s decades of preying on women seeking to break into the movie business. The Peacock’s attempts to explain why former MSNBC host Ronan Farrow’s expose on Weinstein never made it on the air, despite extensive, on-the-record interviews and a damning audiotape of Weinstein himself, have fallen flat as the story has exploded. “Who at NBC News passed on this story?” asked Mediaite columnist and Managing Editor Colby Hall. “Why would they(image)



My Home and Car Vandalized Because I’m a Conservative Writer

Mon, 09 Oct 2017 15:37:56 +0000

Over the course of this year someone in my neighborhood has targeted me. At first I thought it was just random vandals as the attacks were penny-ante nonsense, but now I am pretty sure it is being done by someone who knows I am a conservative writer who has a body of work stretching back to 2001 and they are trying to intimidate me. It started early this year when a flag was pulled off my flag staff and left ripped and in pieces on my lawn. I replaced the flag imagining it was just local punks acting tough. Weeks(image)

Proposed Gun Legislation That Is Reasonable

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 12:04:56 +0000

No blogger is correct in every case. Regarding gun control, I am happily incorrect about something. In my blog post Las Vegas Shooting and Gun Control, I state the following: “New gun legislation might be worthy of consideration as long as it meets two conditions: 1) It doesn’t violate the Second Amendment. 2) It would actually do some significant good. I don’t know of any proposed gun legislation that meets both of those conditions.” As it turns out, there is proposed gun legislation that meets both of those conditions. From The Hill: “Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.) plans to introduce bipartisan(image)



Las Vegas Shooting and Gun Control

Tue, 03 Oct 2017 00:22:48 +0000

They want to shut the gate to the corral after all of the horses have escaped. That’s how some people are reacting to the mass shooting in Las Vegas. “If only the federal government had passed Law X after the Y shooting, then the Las Vegas shooting wouldn’t have happened!” Hey, Pandora, why don’t you grab those bad things you let out of your box and put them back in? Oh well. Such a knee-jerk reaction should be expected. Isn’t that the way people are? We crave simple solutions to complex problems because we don’t want to admit that the(image)



Las Vegas Massacre (OPEN THREAD)

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 18:57:58 +0000

From FoxNews: A gunman turned a Las Vegas concert into a killing field Sunday night from his perch on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, using at least 10 guns to rain down a steady stream of fire, murdering at least 58 people and injuring more than 500 others in the deadliest mass shooting in modern United States history. The suspect, who died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, was identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, a resident of Mesquite, Nevada. Police initially sought a woman believed to be Paddock’s roommate, Marilou Danley, as a “person of interest.” Detectives later made contact with her,(image)



Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners Week of September 29 2017

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 02:05:37 +0000

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ showed a loss in the number of captions submitted compared to the week before this one. What the heck? It’s not like I’m kneeling during the anthem. You all should have more time for captioning, now that the NFL has mysteriously vanished. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture: Here are the winning entries: 1) (fustian24) – Perhaps unsurprisingly, this was followed by a round of golf. 2) (yetanotherjohn) – So I swallowed one of those gastroenterology cameras, you know, the kind that pass through your entire digestive track, and guess what(image)



Free Speech and the NFL

Fri, 29 Sep 2017 19:00:13 +0000

The National Football League is an industry that provides entertainment via football games. Like every other industry, it answers to the law of supply and demand. The NFL will go on as long as people are willing to buy tickets to NFL games, watch NFL games on TV and buy NFL merchandise. The 2017 NFL season has been irksome for some people because NFL players have chosen to exercise their freedom of speech by engaging in peaceful protest. For example, before their game against the Arizona Cardinals, the Dallas Cowboys knelt during the playing of the National Anthem. If people(image)

Sorry, NFL, You DON’T Have an Unassailable ‘Right’ to Protest the National Anthem

Wed, 27 Sep 2017 18:07:25 +0000

There has been a lot of pious talk from these anti-American leftists who now seem to infest the National Football League who say that they “have a right” to protest the national anthem at the start of each NFL game. But the fact is they really don’t. Thanks to the sham that is America’s liberal besotted system of miseducation, there is a lot of confusion about what our “rights” as Americans are. So, let’s get this straight right now. You have no “right” to behave however you want at work. And if you DO behave however you want, you had(image)
