On the Fact that if Those Leftist Morons at the HuffPo and Those Alt-Right Schmucks at Breitbart News Ever Got Their Heads out of Their Asses and/or Their Bodies Out of the Building for Even One Minute, They Would Know that 80% of the People in this Country Think that Both of These Presidential Candidates Are Unacceptable Pieces of Shit but Because that's Evidently too Much to Ask of Them, I Strongly Suspect that the Partisan Shit Will Only Get Worse
It so reminds me of 1970s pro-wrestling (IN THIS CORNER!!). Just more tragic, that's all.
On the Fact that Trump's New Scaled-Back Immigration Plan Is Essentially a Carbon-Copy of Rubio's Now
I can't wait to see how Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, Breitbart News, Infowars, and the rest of the alt-right responds to this. I mean, are they going to spin for him and make it sound like it really isn't a major shift or are they going to unload on him? My suspicion is that with the possible exception of a few folks at Infowars (Paul Joseph Watson maybe), it'll be the former (with Hannity of course leading the way).
On the Fact that (in Interviews with Megyn Kelly and RT) Julian Assange Has All but Admitted that a DNC Staffer, Seth Rich (and NOT the Russian Government), Was the Primary Source for His Recent Wikileaks Releases (You Know, the Ones that Brought About Great Embarrassment for Wasserman Schultz and the Rest of Those Brain-Diseased Power-Brokers)
And somehow Mr. Rich ends up murdered. Oh boy.
On the Fact that Hillary's Response to Trump Calling Her the "Founder of ISIS" Was to Proclaim that He Was Giving "Aid and Comfort to the Enemy" (Treason, in Other Words)
One good hyperbolic and slanderous slur deserves another, I guess.............And do we really have nine more weeks of these two loathsome fucks dissing each other?
As the line between the inmates and staff continues to widen......AND WIDEN......AND WIDEN.
On Hillary's, "We Came, We Saw, He Died" (in Response to the Deposing and Murdering of Gadaffi) and the Uncomfortable Laugh that Followed it
Take note, Mr. Assange. Take note (the fact that you're apparently dealing with somebody who takes a rather morbid pleasure in offing people and because of it you should probably find a safe-room, hire a food-taster, buy a bullet-proof vest, load up on ammo, etc.).
On the Fact that When You Fall in Love with a Political Figure and Defend That Individual No Matter What He or She Does, it Is a Recipe for Tyranny and You Are Contributing to the Tyranny
Think about it, Trump supporter, Hillary supporter, anybody with a conscience, etc..

On 9/11 we were spending more on defense than the next 14 countries combined and had military bases all over the planet AND WE STILL GOT ATTACKED!! Sorry but I gotta give this one a "pants on fire", folks (hell, if anything, a larger military probably makes us more vulnerable; the fact that it functions as a recruiting tool, puts our soldiers in the crossfire, allows weaponry to get into the wrong hands, etc.).
On the Fact that (According to Economist, Richard Epstein) Life Expectancy in this Country Rose from 38 in 1850 to 54 by 1920, a Spike that Happened During the Industrial Revolution and Prior to Any Significant Labor Legislation
I point this out because the left is always trying to assert that the industrial revolution was this horrible period in history (conveniently ignoring the fact that 18th and 19th Century farm labor in America was extraordinarily dangerous, brutal, etc. and that factory work, while it surely wasn't pleasant, was a definite improvement) and that it wasn't until the white-knighted labor movement that the lives of Americans got better. To crush their myth, in other words.............................................................................................P.S. And yes, the fact of the matter is that life got better predominantly because of free market capitalism, entrepreneurial and technological advancements, private property, etc. and that the biggest accomplishment of labor unions was to somehow jump in front of the parade and claim that they started it.

I could care less what the guy does. But being that a) his black father tossed him aside like a soiled piece of toilet-paper (and seemingly STILL wants nothing to do with him), b) his white step-parents treated him with extraordinary kindness, c) the fellow is sitting on a $60,000,000 guaranteed contract (this despite the fact that his game has tanked), d) a black person in this country is 27 times more likely (if you norm for population) to violently attack a white individual than vice-versa, e) no hard evidence exists that the criminal justice system is racist (http://paranoiacstoogetalk.blogspot.com/2013/12/the-long-and-lingering-lie.html), and f) a police officer is actually slightly more likely to shoot a white suspect (if you control for criminality) than a black one, it's pretty clear that the guy is full of bullshit and should in fact be called on it. Sorry but yeah...........................................................................................P.S. It's probably also fair to underscore that this same half-black dude got fined by the NFL for calling an all-black dude a nigger. How rich is that?
So, kind of like the claims that a Youtube video caused the Benghazi terror attacks, that Vladimir Putin controls Breitbart News, Infowars, the Drudge Report, etc., that Donald Trump (and not the violent leftists) is responsible for the uptick in school bullying, that there was a "vast right-wing conspiracy" which somehow caused her husband to constantly pull his dick out, etc., in other words.......Are you beginning to see a pattern with this (i.e., the woman's penchant to project)? I am.
Sunday, August 28, 2016
On the Fact that Some on the Left Are Attempting to Deny the Existence of the "Ferguson Effect" (Police Pulling Back so as to Not Be Accused of Racism and with that Void Additional Crime Ensuing)
And their explanation for the increases in murder and other violent crimes in big cities would be what, I'm wondering?
On the Fact that Politifact Actually Fact-Checked Ted Cruz's Comment About Iran Having a "Kill American Day"
Seriously? They're fact-checking jokes now? Oh well, as long as they do it to the Democrats, too.......Yeah, right.
So, kind of like Saudi Arabia (you know, the country that's given the Clinton Foundation gobs and gobs of money, was recently sold $30,000,000,000 in advanced fighter airplanes, and which Hillary refuses to criticize in spite of their hideous treatment of women), in other words. Yeah, we had better stay away from those alt-right people.

On the Fact that the BBC Is Struggling to Find "Common Threads" Regarding the Terror Attacks in France and Germany
Well, I can think of one; the fact that POS media outlets like the BBC always seem to contort themselves into not blaming Islam when even the perpetrators go out of their way trying to convince the world that it's ALL about Islam....That, and they do seem to be mostly Islamic dirt-bags.
So kind of like Obama and Black Lives Matter (a group that has inspired cop-killers, fostered mayhem, lied profusely, and whose ideological progenitor is currently on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List), in other words. OK, I get it now...........................................................................................P.S. And, no, this isn't an attempt to defend Trump. He's an asshole as well.
Yeah, I would say that this some it up pretty well (still one of my all-time favorite movie lines).
On the Fact that Even Though There Were Numerous British Missionaries (None of Whom Particularly Liked the Afrikaners and Actually Preferred the Zulus) Who Testified that the Umgungundlovu Incident Was Nothing More that a Virulent Episode of Zulu Treachery, Torture, and Homicide, There Are Still Those in the West Who Try and Pin the Blame for this Whole Bloody Affair on the Afrikaners - Quick Addendum
And, yes (as a backdrop), this whole thing started when Dingane and Trek Afrikaner leader, Pieter Retief (a Tough but Fair-Minded Dutchman), made a compact in which in exchange for Retief hunting down and retrieving some stolen cattle (the probable culprits of this crime being the mixed race Griqua - this, though the cattle were ultimately found among the Ba'Tlokwa tribe) the Zulus would grant the Afrikaner farmers a large section of the prairie west of the Drakensberg Mountains (a somewhat problematic arrangement in that there exists some evidence that the land had already been ceded to the British crown - yep, they had their hands in this situation, too, evidently), with the Afrikaners holding up their end deal and the Zulus, well, not so much (this despite the fact that Dingane had even gone as far as to sign the treaty with Retief - per the Brit, William Wood).......So as the result of Zulu maleficence and barbarism, in other words (as the Mandela cult chokes on yet another slice of the truth).
On the Fact that Even Though There Were Numerous British Missionaries (None of Whom Particularly Liked the Afrikaners and Actually Preferred the Zulus) Who Testified that the Umgungundlovu Incident Was Nothing More that a Virulent Episode of Zulu Treachery, Torture, and Homicide, There Are Still Those in the West Who Try and Pin the Blame for this Whole Bloody Affair on the Afrikaners
There's this, for example, from William Wood - "The farmers had not been sitting longer than about a quarter of an hour, when Dingane called out, 'Seize them!', upon which an overwhelming rush was made upon the party before they could get to their feet.............The farmers were then dragged with their feet trailing on the ground, each man being held by as many Zulus as could get at hum, from the presence of Dingane, who still continued sitting and calling out, 'Bulala amatakati (kill the wizards)!'.............they commenced the work of death by striking them on the head with knobbed sticks.............Retief's heart and liver were taken out, wrapped in a cloth, and taken to Dingane.............About two hours after the massacre, orders were issued to a large party to set off and attack the wagons that contained the wives and children of the murdered farmers."...................And this from Reverend Owen - "A dreadful day in the annals of the mission! My pen shudders to give an account of it.............it disclosed a a horrid instance of perfidy - too horrid to be described - towards the unhappy men who have for these three days been his guests, but are now no more.............My attention was directed to the blood-stained hill nearly opposite my hut and on the other side of my wagon, which hides it from my view, where all the executions at this fearful spot take place and which was now destined to add 60 more bleeding carcasses to the number of those which have already cried to heaven for vengeance.............About 9 or 10 Zulus to each Boer were dragging their helpless unarmed victim to the fatal spot, where those eyes which awaked this morning to see the cheerful light of day for the last time, are now closed in death."..................Not a pretty picture is it?...But, yeah, at last we now know where the ditty, "kill the Boer", came from.
On the Fact that (According to John William Colenso's Book, "Ten Weeks in Natal") Shaka Zulu's Half-Brother, Dingane, Not Only Offed Shaka but Also Murdered Another Chief Named Matiwane by Driving Pegs Into His Brain Through His Nostrils
And this is the guy, Dingane, that the Trek Boers had to deal with? Yeah, huh?.................................................................................P.S. And, yes, please stay tuned as the plot thickens.......Or should I say, coagulates?
Friday, August 26, 2016
On the Fact that Al Gore's Recent Calls for Population Control in Africa Sound Creepily Similar to the Lingo of Early 20th Century Eugenicists
As his segregationist father smiles down upon him, this creep.
So we have one candidate who won't talk to the press period and another one who won't STOP talking to it (and thereby putting on full display his idiocy). Has this been a great year or what?
On the Fact that Bill Nye, the (Not so) Science Guy, Is Apparently Open to Criminal Charges for Climate Change Dissenters
On the Fact that (According to the Diary of Reverend Francis Owen and the Charlotte Mary Yonge Volume, "Pioneers and Founders") Shaka Zulu Routinely Referred to the Vultures Who Hung Around Kwa Matiwane as His "Children" (the Fact that the Depraved and Vengeful Zulu King Would Regularly Torture and Execute Folks Who Were Not Sufficiently Deferent to His Wishes and that this of Course Meant Copious Amounts of Chow-Time)
How sick is that?......And how smart WERE these birds? They were so smart that they actually knew well enough to hang around the "trials" in anticipation of yet another ass-kicking meal. THAT SMART.

On the Fact that While Hillary Will Unquestionably Get the Black Vote this Fall, the Haitian-American Vote, Hmm, Maybe Not - Quick Addendum
I guess that Hillary just needs to do a better job of listening when Haitian people talk.
On the Fact that in Spite of Universally Solid Reviews from Critics and Viewers Alike, the Documentary Movie, "Winning, the Racing Life of Paul Newman", Was Not Given a Screening at Sundance (Sundance of Course Being Run by Newman's Old Friend, Robert Redford)
And the fact that the producer and director of the film, Adam Carolla, is a conservative is just another pure coincidence/Festivus miracle, I guess.
"Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide."............While Adams is far from my favorite Founding Father (Macon, Madison, and Mason I greatly prefer for their stances on limited government), on this point I fully agree. The fact of the matter is that in a full-bore democracy, the majority will eventually cannibalize the minority, the poor will eventually cannibalize the rich, and the moronic will eventually cannibalize the intelligent. And, yes, let it also be stated that these same Founding Fathers feared people like Trump and Sanders; populist demagogues whose singular focus it is to incite passions such as jealousy and to run roughshod over liberty. They would have been aghast (at the current situation), I strongly fear.
On the Fact that While Hillary Will Unquestionably Get the Black Vote this Fall, the Haitian-American Vote, Hmm, Maybe Not
Yeah, they don't like the Clintons it appears (the fact that Bill spearheaded the Haitian relief efforts after the earthquake and even though the world raised $13,000,000,000 to rebuild the country it still looks like it did five years ago). Not even a little.
On if Donald Trump and Bill O'Reilly Had Made that Moronic Colored People's Time Joke Rather than Clinton and de Blasio
They would have been bitch-slapped for days and from every direction. The Democrats, yeah, not so much (pandering buys silence, I guess).
So, he's the worst of the left AND the right (bridges to nowhere and bombs to everywhere), in other words. That's just peachy.

On Being Forced (at the Point of a Bayonet) to Stand at Attention When Some Statist Power-Mongering Degenerate Stooge (i.e., a Judge) Enters the Gallery
Doesn't it just want to make you vomit?......Sitting of course.
"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."............And Mrs. Clinton relishes her recent Margaret Sanger Award.......why exactly?
That sonic boom that you're hearing in the distance - yeah, that's Ann Coulter's head detonating. Soooooooooo pissed.
On the Fact that the Left Eviscerated Donald Trump for Donating Play Doh (it Is Standard to Donate Toys to Disaster Victims and it Was Hardly the Only Thing that He Donated) to the Flood Victims in Louisiana While Simultaneously Not Criticizing Obama for Not Showing Up at All and Instead Spraying Golf-Balls on the Cape
These people have no moral compunction whatsoever and judge literally every action under the sun based solely on whether the responsible agent has a D or R in front of his or her name. It's pathetic and damned if we don't need to marginalize these degenerates. Are you with me?
On the Fact that Breitbart.com Has Gone From an Interesting (Albeit Partisan) Alternative News-Site to What Is Now Essentially a Propaganda Mouthpiece for the Trump Campaign
Well, being that their daily traffic has gone up 6-7 fold, I guess that it was a good decision, business-wise at least (and isn't that what it's all about these days; making big money while still being partisan?).
Tuesday, August 23, 2016
On the Fact that (According to the U.S. Government's Own Official POW Death Figures from 1866), a Higher Percentage of Confederates Died in Federal Prisons than Did Federals in Confederate Prisons - this, Despite the Fact that There Was More Food, More Supplies, and Better Infrastructure Up North - http://civilwarhome.com/SHSPandersonville.htm
Secretary Stanton was a neo-Confederate, I guess.
On an African-American Studies Degree from Dartmouth Versus a Science or Math Degree from Keene State (a New Hampshire Themed Post for Sure) - Quick Addendum
And, yes, for every Marc Lamont Hill, Michael Eric Dyson, and Cornel West (who've somehow been able punch out a living peddling this pure bullshit), there are literally thousands who can't get a job rolling burritos and who are suffocating under a mountain of debt. Thank you, leftists.
On the Fact that While the Mortality Rates at the Andersonville and Elmira POW Prison Camps Were Roughly the Same (Some Sources Say that Elmira Was Actually Worse), Everybody Knows About Andersonville but Few Know About Elmira
The victors write the history. We should all be aware of that by now....................................................................................P.S. And, yes, one of the main reasons why the death-toll at Andersonville and other southern prisons was so high was because the North had all but obliterated the South's infrastructure (making it all but impossible to resupply the prisons), stolen and/or destroyed its food supply, etc. - factors which made the death-rate of prison guards almost as high as that of the prisoners and which didn't exist up north.

On Why that 24 Year-Old Black Cop in Milwaukee Fired Some Rounds Into that Gun-Wielding Black Criminal Who Refused to Lay His Weapon Down
I'm not a mind-reader but if had to make a guess it would probably be that the fellow had a family to go home to and didn't want to disappoint them. Black lives matter.
A Powerful Forewarning that Was Tragically Ignored and Just Look at the Results of it (a Huge Out of Wedlock Birth-Rate, Mass Incarceration, an Epidemic of Black Youth Unemployment, etc.)
“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” Booker T. Washington
On the Fact that a California Judge Recently Ruled that the Internet Dating-Site, Christian Mingle, Must Allow LGBT Applicants
How ludicrous is that? a) The proprietors of that site apparently don't feel comfortable serving gays, lesbians, transgenders, etc. and it shouldn't be the role of the government in a free society to force them to do it at gunpoint. b) It's a huge slippery-slope (what's next, forcing a Jewish dating-site to allow the al Aqsa Martyr's Brigade to sign up with them?). And c) There are more than enough alternative dating-sites (some of them actually meant for gay Christians - HELLO!!) that would be more than willing to take the money and so why in the hell would someone want to give their hard-earned cash (20 something dollars a month) to someone who apparently doesn't want it and where you probably wouldn't get any dates? It makes zero sense and enough already with this virtue-signalling and coercion cocktail.

On the President of Bard College's Brain-Dead Plan to Forgive All Current Student Debt and to Tie Any Future Student Debt to One's Ability to Pay
So, yet another collectivist proposal that screws the taxpayers (many of whom never went to college and who therefore have an earning potential less than the people they're bailing out) and which doesn't call on the person who's proposing it to make a sacrifice himself, in other words. Just great. And do I really have to explain why this is a stupid idea (the fact that it does nothing to reduce costs and in fact would undoubtedly increase them, the fact that it doesn't eliminate the debt and only transfers it, the fact that it totally eliminates the risk-reward/cost-benefit component of a young person's decision - whether to take on debt, what discipline to major in, etc., etc.) AGAIN? Please, tell me no.
On the Fact that No Cogent Person with an Even Rudimentary Understanding of How the Natural World Works Would Ever Try and Say that Carbon Dioxide Is a Dangerous Pollutant and Yet Due to Political Pressures We Now Have Marginal, Sub-Par Pseudo-Scientists Such as Michael Mann and James Hanson Peddling this Absurd Notion and the Mass-Media Covering for Them
Again, this is what inevitably happens when you put science and politics together; corruption (both within the government AND scientific community; the peer-review process now being a huge joke), crony capitalism (Al Gore on the precipice of becoming the world's first green billionaire - how disgusting is that?), a suspension of reason and logic, etc.. Hopefully it all gets straightened out before the next big ice-age (some of the previous ones having taken place with CO2 levels many multiple of what they currently are but I digress).
Saturday, August 20, 2016
On the Sad Likelihood that a Misguided Youngster with No Dad and Limited Prospects Will Probably Buy Hook, Line, and Sinker that Entire Al Sharpton, Jamal Bryant, Marc Lamont Hill (the Dumbest of 'Em All), NOI Shine Template of an Insurmountable Victimhood that Can Only Be Mitigated by a Shakedown of the Taxpayer and that if this Cash Isn't Forthcoming, They Will Then Be Provided the Space, License, etc. to Destroy
I cannot fathom that this will end well and sincerely hope that a new approach will eventually be tried (you know, one that doesn't involve idiotic regulations, incentive-destroying entitlements, a monopolistic public school system that doesn't allow for choice, a war on drugs, etc., etc.).
"A brave race can forget the victims of the field of battle, but never those of the scaffold. The making of political martyrs is the last insanity of statesmanship."............Doyle was an honest Brit (yes, there are some) and a fellow smart enough to know when his people are wrong. Too bad that there weren't more like him in 1816 when the British yet again overreacted to Afrikaner resistance (this time the fuse was lit by a 60 year-old Boer farmer who refused to travel 100 miles to a kangaroo court over some small dust-up with a Khoe Khoe farmer) and executed a bunch of farmers over a rebellion that harmed not a single person; an act that poisoned even more the British-Afrikaner mutual hate-fest (culminating ultimately in the two Anglo-Boer Wars).
On the Fact that When a Newspaper or Web-Site Claims that "the Police Did Not Get a Good Description of the Assailant", What They're Really Saying Is that "the Perpetrator Was Black but Because We Don't Want Offend Anybody We're Going to Play it Coy Here and Instead Give You that BS and Hackneyed 'Vague Description' Line"
It's how they roll these days (never once thinking that maybe it's stuff like this that keeps them in the single-digits when it comes to trust).
Friday, August 19, 2016
I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say, racism (you know, as opposed to the much more plausible reasons; the show sucking big time, him not being particularly humorous, piss-poor ratings, etc.).
On an African-American Studies Degree from Dartmouth Versus a Science or Math Degree from Keene State (a New Hampshire Themed Post for Sure)
I think that the evidence is quite clear by now (I highly recommend the Taylor, Sander book "Mismatch" for a more detailed examination) that the latter choice is the superior one and that we are doing black students no favor by trying to get them into these higher echelon schools where they have a hard time keeping up and where a lot of them instead of dropping out end up with these useless, bullshit majors. I mean, I understand that affirmative action is one of those ingrained policies and all (and hence impervious to facts) and that even a minor alteration of it will set off the SJWs BUT WE'RE DESTROYING LIVES.What frigging part of that do they not understand?
On the Fact that in Her Memoir (a Memoir at Age 29, Really?), Actress, Lena Dunham, Essentially Confessed to Behaving Like a Sexual Predator (Even Using the Term) with Her Younger Sister (Innocently Starting at Age Seven but Then Proceeding Well Into Her Teenage Years) but Now that Other Media Outlets Are Quoting DIRECTLY from this Memoir, Dunham Is Crying Foul and Threatening Law-Suits
My suspicion is that Lena is a spoiled brat who's rarely if ever heard the word, no, from an adult (the fact that only in an insular world would a 29 year-old think that it's legitimate to sue somebody simply for quoting you). And can you even begin to imagine if a male had confessed to such things in his memoir? HE WOULD HAVE BEEN DESTROYED!!!......Double-standard, anybody?

On Those White Cylindrical Objects that Littered the Desert and Prairie West of the Drakensberg Mountains that the Potgieter Contingent Viewed as They Trekked North in 1836 to Escape British Oppression and Ba'Ntu Atrocities
Yeah, they were skulls, hundreds of thousands of the things (380,000, according to the Diaries of John Centlivres Chase and William Boyce) and they were all deposited there by Zulu and Matabele genocidal maniacs whose singular focus it was to exterminate any peaceful tribe (the Shangaan, the Venda, the Ndebele, various Ba'Sotho nations, etc.) that wished to reside there.......And here's the kicker. It wasn't because they wanted to use the prairie to farm on, live on, etc.. They just wanted it as a buffer-zone. A BUFFER ZONE!!! Oh yeah, those noble savages. Gotta love 'em.
So more or less like the institutional left (after their junket to the Soviet Union) in the 1930s, in other words. Interesting (albeit utterly speculative).
On the Fact that Some Douche-Bag on Fox News Actually Said that President Lincoln's Views on Slavery Caused the South to Secede
Gee, what a shock, full-bore ignorance coming out of cable-news. The fact of the matter is that Lincoln was 1,000% accommodating to slavery in his 1861 inaugural (the fact that he pledged to support the Corwin Amendment, enforce the Fugitive Slave Act, and even adhered to those resolutions of the Crittenden Amendment which would have made all state nullifications of the Fugitive Slave Act null and void) and if the individual had taken just ten minutes to read it he wouldn't have made such a ludicrous statement.......Of course, the fact that the American public is way too moronic to have picked up on it is a problem as well and so, yeah, we're getting what we deserve, I guess.
Tuesday, August 16, 2016
On the Fact that Even Though They Had Very Little Experience When it Came to Mining Gold, a Company Called VCS Mining Was Awarded the Gold-Mining Concession in Haiti After the Horrible Earthquake There in 2010
And the fact that Mrs. Clinton's brother, Tony Rodham, sits on the board at VCS is a total coincidence, I guess (the fact that Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation were essentially running the show in Haiti and voila, Hillary's brother strikes pay-dirt).
On the Fact the Democratic Socialists of America Website States that "the Workers Who Are Affected by Economic Institutions Should Own and Control Them"
And so the difference between democratic socialism (where apparently if I owned a business that did well enough to employ a couple of hundred people, I wouldn't any longer be allowed to call the shots and would instead be at the mercy of those who sweep the floors and plow the driveways) and regular socialism.......is.......what again?
On the Fact that the Trump Plan for Defeating ISIS Is Apparently to Bomb the Living Daylights Out of Them
So doubling down, creating more rubble, sewing the seeds of more hatred, continuing to do what we've done for damn close to a quarter of a century now (dropping bombs and throwing good money after bad), etc., in other words. Yep, he's officially just another politician now, folks. BEHOLD!
Monday, August 15, 2016
On the Fact that (According George McCall Theal's Epic Volume, "Chronicles of Cape Commanders") the Only Group in South Africa Which Possesses the DNA of Former Slaves Is the Dutch Afrikaner
Yeah, that's right folks. a) No indigenous black population of South Africa was ever enslaved by the Dutch or the English (this, while there exists copious amounts of evidence that many Zulu refugees had been enslaved by the Ba'Ntu) and b) a fair number of Afrikaners had intermarried with the freed slaves from Indonesia, India, and Malaysia. Talk about some major irony, huh?
On the Warped Logic Which States that the Just Response to a Black Police Officer (in Milwaukee) Shooting a Gun-Toting Black Criminal Is to Decry White Racism, Trash Black Businesses, and Pilfer Such Necessary Items as Alcohol, Hair-Extensions, and High-Definition Televisions
I'm sorry but I just don't see it as a winning strategy. Do you?
On the Fact that CNN Tried to Make it Sound as if the Sister of that Slain Gunman in Milwaukee Was Calling for Peace When in Actuality She Was Trying to Coax the Rioters to Burn Down the Suburbs
"Burn that shit down" - an exact quote.......As for the slugs at CNN, heads need to roll and viewers need to turn the channel off PERMANENTLY.
On the Fact that as the Saudis Were Donating Millions of Dollars to the Clinton Foundation, the Hillary Clinton State Department Was Rubber-Stamping the Sale of Nearly $30,000,000,000 in Advanced Fighter Jets to this Same Virulent Saudi Regime
So, she's crooked AND a threat to world peace. Talk about a twofer.
Sunday, August 14, 2016
It's horrible. And it isn't just in big cities like San Francisco and Baltimore, either. Get a load of this, for example, out of Rochester - http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2014/07/03/asians-bleed-a-lot-racial-violence-in-rochester/ - and, yeah, send the link to the President.
Strictly speaking, of course he's wrong (the fact that it was George Bush who a) invaded Iraq and created the initial destabilization and b) signed the Status of Forces Agreement which mandated our departure) but having said that neither is the dude entirely full of shit. The fact of the matter is that it was under Obama and Hillary that a) the Afghan conflict was expanded, b) Gadaffi in Libya was overthrown, c) weapons were poured into the region in an effort to overthrow Assad in Syria, and d) the drone program was increased SIX-FOLD and expanded into numerous countries - all of which added to the destabilization and made it much easier for terrorist groups to recruit. Granted, a lot of this stuff probably isn't even on Trumps radar BUT if he's as smart as he claims to be.............
Saturday, August 13, 2016
Professional agitator/victim, fast food worker.
On the Fact that Former Ambassador, Joe Wilson (Yep, Him Again), and His Firm, Jarch Capital, Signed a Lease Agreement with Vile Warlords in South Sudan that Gave Them Unfettered Access to a Piece of Land Which Was Rich in Minerals
Can you even begin to imagine if this had been Mitt Romney and Bain Capital? Holy fucking shit, huh?
On the Fact that Wendy's Is Now Seriously Contemplating the Use of Self-Serving Kiosks as a Possible Response if the Minimum-Wage Goes Up to $15 an Hour
Yeah, I'm gonna go with, "Only Shocking if You're a Drooling Idiot', on this one, folks (the fact that as even an introductory economics textbook will inform you, if you increase the cost of something you get less of it). OF COURSE BUSINESSES ARE GOING TO TRY AND TRIM LABOR COSTS, HELLO!!!
On the Fact that (According to the F.B.I.) for the Years Between 2003 and 2009, There Was an Average of Over 22,000 Black on White Rapes Per Year and an Average of ZERO White on Black Rapes Per Year - http://conservative-headlines.com/2014/12/the-truth-about-interracial-rape/
Yet another racist fact, I gather.
On the Fact that (According to Economists, Thomas Sowell and Mark W. Hendrickson), While the Steel Tariffs of the 1980s Saved 5,000 Jobs in the Steel Industry, They Ended Up Costing 26,000 Jobs in the Steel-Using Industries
And you can find similar examples. Sugar tariffs, for example, while these tariffs ended up saving some jobs in the sugar-growing industry, they ultimately destroyed many multiples more in the various confection industries (candy, soda, cookies, etc.)....And don't you just want to bitch-slap Trump for being too stupid to realize that there are unintended consequences for this protectionism shit? I do (not that I'm calling for violence here, mind you).
On the Fact that Bernie Sanders and His Wife Just Purchased a $600,000 Vacation Home on Lake Champlain
I guess that they didn't want those particular dineros to be "redistributed".
On the Fact that Failed Baltimore Mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Is Currently Employed as Hillary Clinton's Advisor on Urban Affairs
"Space to Destroy" is going national, I guess.......And just when you thought that it couldn't get weirder.

On the Fact that Mrs. Clinton (Acting Almost Like a Fucking Robot by Now) Just Dusted Off that Classic Leftist Line About the Rich Not Paying Their Fair-Share
I would ask her the same question that I ask all of these brain-dead leftist political hacks. "Mrs. Clinton, the top 1% currently pays nearly 40% of the income tax burden and has an effective tax rate pertaining to all federal taxes of nearly 28% (as opposed to the bottom quintile whose effective rate is under 2%). What SHOULD these numbers be? And, please, be specific, you ignorant, shameless politician." And then I'd wait for an answer - http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/taxvox/current-law-distribution-taxes
That is absurd in that as we all know, President Obama is not a Muslim but rather a demagogic, surface-thinking, partisan a-hole whose grasp on reality is tepid at best. Come on, people!
The Complete and Unabridged Volume of What Black Lives Matter Has Had to Say About Black on Asian Crime, Black on Gay Crime, Black on Hispanic Crime, Black on Transgendered Crime, Black on Cop Crime, Black on Elderly Crime, Black on Disabled Crime, etc. (All of Which Are Ridiculously Out of Proportion)
.......Yeah, they don't seem to address those topics, do they?
On the Fact that the Borderline Retarded Actor, Will Smith, Recently Stated that the Trump Supporters Needed to Be "Cleansed"
Fine, but only if they take all of those shitty Will Smith box-office bombs with 'em. You know, 'cause otherwise it might be seen as a tad too authoritarian, Stalinist, Milosevicesque, etc..
On the Fact that I Once Worked with a Guy Who Thought that Uncle Tupelo Sounded Just Like Lynard Skynard
He also thinks that Bachman Turner Overdrive sounds like Chopin and, so, yeah, consider the source.

On the Fact that Bill Clinton Received $1.4 Million Several Years Ago for Two Speeches that He Delivered in Nigeria (the Money Coming from a Crony Enterprise that Is Closely Associated with the Brutal and Repressive Nigerian Government; a Government that Mrs. Clinton Refused to Criticize Until After the Speeches Dried Up)
Now that I WOULD tax at 90%. Fully agree with Bernie on this one.
On the Fact that the Left Continues to Make a Big Deal Over the Fact that Carly Fiorina Apparently Got Bounced from Hewlett-Packard
Yeah, they can't have it both ways here. They can't on the one hand say that CEOs are fully in bed with the board of directors who a) protect them and b) pay them per their demands and on the other hand say that an individual who they don't like politically got shit-canned from one of these big, bad corporations. At least they can't with me.
I think that Rao's Coffee Shop in Amherst Massachusetts probably has the best answer; four single-occupancy unisex bathrooms that all of their patrons can use. Granted, it's not an strategy that schools with hundreds of students could ever implement but it would be good for businesses that don't want to discriminate against transgendered folks but who also don't want to freak out a bunch of young girls who are forced to pee with some 50 year-old tranny who still has a cock. That and it's common sense which is always a plus.......................................................................................................P.S. And, yes, I'm proposing this as a voluntary solution, 'cause as you're all aware by now I oppose coercion.

On Why the Southern States Emphasized Slavery More than They Did Tariffs in Their Respective Articles of Secession
Probably for the identical reason that George W. Bush emphasized WMD more than he did the other, far more likely, reasons (i.e., oil, geopolitical hegemony, concerns for Israel, the scoring of political points on the home-front, etc., etc.); namely, that it would sell infinitely better to the electorate. The fact of the matter is that slavery was in no danger whatsoever (Lincoln's 1861 inaugural essentially being a slavery in perpetuity speech) and that if anything the institution would have been far LESS secure had the South seceded (the fact that the Fugitive Slave Act would have no longer been viable in that the North wouldn't have had to enforce it any longer, HELLO! - one of the major reasons why a lot of Northern abolitionists had wanted the NORTH to secede). I mean, I understand that none of these facts will likely resonate with the Lincoln cult (you know, the group that thinks that the South was motivated primarily by slavery and that the North was motivated primarily by a desire to end it) but the theory that the Southern politicians had lied to their citizens makes a hell of a lot more sense than the claim that that they were trying to protect an institution that didn't really need any protection.
On the Capacity to Listen to an Uptempo Uncle Tupelo Song Without Also Having to Execute the Violent Punk-Rock Head-Bob
Yeah, let's just say that I haven't mastered it yet.
On the Fact that the Most Significant Opposition to Women Getting the Vote Was Women Themselves and that Once the Majority of These Women Decided that They Wanted the Vote They Got it - http://www.spectator.co.uk/2014/05/did-most-women-want-the-vote/
Yeah, it wasn't some patriarchal and oppressive force that wanted to keep women down but much more the fact that many women just didn't want the vote, because a) they thought that politics was dirty and didn't want to be a part of such a sleazy line of work, b) felt that their husband's vote was representative of what the family as a whole wanted, and c) didn't want the responsibility of voting in that they were fearful of possibly being conscripted (not necessarily for war but for other reasons). I mean, I understand that this totally destroys the feminist narrative and all but isn't it also kind of liberating (pun intended) in its own way?
On the Fact that Sean Hannity All but Puts Words into Donald Trump's Pie-Hole During Those Dog and Pony Show Interviews of Theirs ("You're a Constitutional Conservative, Right?", "Correct")
Tuesday, August 9, 2016
On the Fact that a Significant Percentage of the Sources that Walter Brian Cisco Used for His Seminal Volume, "War Crimes Against Southern Civilians", Were Northern Newspapers, the Diaries of Union Officers, and Slave Journals
On the Fact that President Obama Wants to Have a Conversation (on Race) in Which Only One Side Is Allowed to Express Their Grievances
And on what sane planet did the fellow scoop up this particular paradigm (a 1970s pro-wrestling world-view in which only villains and victims exist)? Any guesses?
On the Fact that Mrs. Clinton (a Piss-Poor Candidate Who Would Probably Get Steamrolled Under Normal Circumstances) Gets to Run Against Donald Trump (and Even Bigger Horse's Ass Though Not Quite as Evil) this Time
The political equivalent of winning Mass Megabucks one week, Powerball the next week, and having a gibbon parachute out of the sky and land in your backyard with a million dollars in his nap-sack.......And she still can't put the fellow away!!
On the Fact that the Emancipation Proclamation Didn't Even Free the Slaves in the Union-Controlled Louisiana Territory
Again, this was not a political document but a military one (the goal of which was to cause a slew of slave rebellions in the South and a toppling of the Confederate government with Lincoln's ultimate goal of course being to colonize the freed blacks in Africa; an act that would have caused unbelievable suffering and death) and how anybody can continue to trumpet it as some sort of seminal treatise on liberty is perplexing to say the least....Lincoln, yeah, some great emancipator.
On When Two Dishonest and Unsavory Psychos Vie for the Opportunity to Deep-Six a Once Promising Republic
I am so glad that that could never happen here (as it has in South Africa and other God-forsaken locations).......Wink, wink.
On the Fact that the Wall Street Journal's Bret Stephens Recently Referred to Sean Hannity as Fox News's Dumbest Anchor and Even Went as Far as to Compare the Dude to that Doltish Kevin Kline Character from "A Fish Called Wanda"
I normally don't like Stephens (think Richard Perle, only better looking) and in fact find his chicken-hawk brand of neoconservatism quite unsavory. But, yeah, on this one, he hits it out of the park (the fact that Hannity is a full-bore drooler) and even made me laugh a bit (think back to Jamie Lee Curtis telling Kline that she'd like to call him stupid but that she didn't want to insult stupid people).
Monday, August 8, 2016
On the Fact that Sean Hannity Once Said that Moving Forward He Was Only Going to Vote for "Disciplined, Principled Conservatives"
That was then, this is now, I guess (the fact that the fellow is presently shilling for Trump, a man who is neither principled nor conservative; the fact that he's a protectionist, believes in universal healthcare, wants to increase the minimum-wage, thinks that we need to spend more on infrastructure, etc.).
On the Fact that Mrs. Obama Attempted to Turn that Innocent Target Story (Which Actually WAS Innocent When She First Told it on Letterman) Into Some Epic Incident on Par with the KKK, Bull Connor, etc.
Yeah, she's a race-huckster/victim-monger just like her damned hubby. Thankfully they'll both be gone soon (that's the good news, the bad news is that they're going to be replaced by the Trumps or Clintons).
On the Fact that the Liberal Washington Post Recently Referred to a Black Assailant of an Hispanic Victim as a "Non-Hispanic"
Trying to get you to think that the perpetrator could be white or Asian when they already knew for a fact that he was black. How fucking dishonest.

On the Fact that Radio Shock-Jock and Conspiracy Theorist Extraordinaire, Alex "I Blew a Gasket on the Piers Morgan Show" Jones, Now Claims that Mark Zuckerberg is a C.I.A. Front-Man (Ditto, Glenn Beck)
And then the dude wonders why he can't get any advertisers and has to peddle instead those bogus supplements just to meet a damn payroll. HE'S NUTS!!!
On the Fact that Those Guttersnipes at MSNBC Made a Big Fuss When the Mother of Sean Smith Spoke at the Republican Convention and Blasted Hillary for Lying to Her but Had No Problem Whatsoever When that Khan Guy Who Lost His Son in Iraq Blasted Trump at the Democratic Convention Over Trump's Proposed Temporary Muslim Ban
Yeah, they're not even trying to be even-handed at this point (I guess that using a consistent moral yardstick is just out of the question - fucking a-holes).
On the Fact that When this Country Began, it Essentially Had One Federal Statute; Treason and Now it Has Over 5,000 of the Things (Some of Which We Break Without Even Knowing About it)
This is exactly what happens when you surrender to the state; the criminalization of literally everything and laws to the highest bidder.
On the Fact that Black Street Predators Are Targeting Hispanics for Robbery and Violence ALL OVER THE COUNTRY
Yeah, maybe we need an Hispanic Lives Matter movement, and a reminder to black people that THEY need to do a better job of listening when Hispanic folks talk.

On Eva Marie Saint's September 7, 1958 Appearance as the Mystery Guest on "What's My Line" Versus Lee Remick's January 10, 1965 Appearance
On the Fact that the Democrats Actually Had Sandra Bland's Mother Speak at Their Convention Last Week
Sandra Bland fucking killed herself. Yes, she was in police custody at the time but that was only because she gave a cop attitude during a routine traffic stop (much like I did when I was 17 and got pulled over on my way to the Barkhamsted reservoir - didn't end well). Nothing racist and zero culpability for the police. Enough already with this pander-fest.
On the Fact that British Generals Such as Vandeleur (Circa 1799) Couldn't Perceive the Difference Between the amaRharhabe Ba'Ntu (Who Had More or Less Achieved an Accord with the Afrikaner Farmers) and the Much More Bellicose amaGqunukhwebe Sect, a Level of Ignorance that Led to Unnecessary Hostilities and a Penchant to Take One's Eye off the Ball
Sound familiar? W, anyone?
On the Fact that Irish Immigrants in the 19th Century Attempted to Advance Their Well-Being Through Political Means While the Chinese and Japanese Immigrants Attempted to Advance Theirs Through Economic and Educational Means
Guess which group did better. Yeah, huh?
AGAIN, I don't have a problem with it. But you can't call Trump a demagogue for the shit that he says about immigration, trade, ISIS, etc. and NOT call out leftist buffoons like Obama, Clinton, Pelosi, Sanders, Warren, Boxer and Holder for the rank stupidity that they've been spouting on race (the discredited claim that blacks are treated more harshly by the justice system), global warming (err, I mean, climate change), and income inequality (the fact that these slants continue to look exclusively at static categories over time and not at flesh and blood human beings).......if, that is, you want credibility.
On the Fact that Earlier this Year a Republican-Controlled Senate Passed Some Turkey Called the Energy and Water Development Appropriation Bill (90 to 8) and Actually Allotted $261,000,000 More than President Obama Requested
Yeah, this is what drives me crazy about Republicans. They talk a good game but when push comes to shove they're just as good at creating these slush-funds as the Democrats are. Screw both parties, I say.
On the Fact that Jim Webb Was All Over Hillary Clinton's Foreign Policy Buffoonishness (Libya, Syria, etc.) but Because the Average Primary Voter Is Such a Fucking Idiot, the Guy Was Never Able to Crack the 1% Barrier
This has been such a depressing political cycle (add also Rand Paul being rejected by the Republicans) and, no, the media certainly haven't helped (the fact that they've focused almost exclusively on Trump and Hillary), have they?
Friday, August 5, 2016
THERE ISN'T ONE. Yes, there is a group that the U.S., N.A.T.O., and the U.N. have apparently specified as legitimate but the fact of the matter is that these "rulers" are just another corrosive faction (the others being the Muslim Brotherhood, the offspring of Gaddafi, ISIS, etc, etc.) and I really have to ask here, how many more countries are we going to have to ruin before we stop this idiocy? Seriously.
On the Fact that in Marc Lamont Hill's Paranoiac and Race-Baiting Universe, a Black Person Can't Be "Racist" Because Blacks Don't Have a Sufficient Amount of Political Power
The man's insane. a) While, yes, blacks on average have less political power than whites, it's also fair to point out that there are a lot of blacks (the President, the Attorney General, the National Security Advisor, the Congressional Black Caucus, the Secretary of Homeland Security, hundreds of big city mayors, etc., etc.) who have a hell of a have a lot more political power than many whites (in Appalachia, say) and c) racism is an irrational system of BELIEFS that doesn't necessarily require political power anyway. I mean, I know that this asshole thinks exclusively in dichotomies and all but this is ludicrous........................................................................................................P.S. And need I also remind you that there doesn't exist a strong correlation between political power and economic attainment (the Chinese in Malaysia, the U.S.A., and other countries, for example, have little political power and yet they continue to kick educational and economic butt) and that maybe a lot of these pro-blacks are climbing up the wrong mountain to begin with?......Just throwing it out there.

On the Fact that it Was the Congressional Black Caucus, MORE THAN ANY OTHER GROUP OF PEOPLE, that Argued the Most Vociferously for More Strenuous Sentencing for Crack Dealers but Now that it Turns Out that Most of Those Dealers Were Black, a Lot of These Same Schmucks Are Crying Racism
Chutzpah, pure and unadulterated.
On a Sneaking Suspicion of Mine that Neocons Schmucks Like Bill Kristol Will Probably Hold Their Noses and Vote for Hillary
I was going to proclaim that politics makes strange bedfellows but after reading sections of Diana Johnstone's book, "Queen of Chaos", yeah, not so much.......THE CHICK'S A HAWK, PEOPLE.
On the Fact that Trump and Hillary Essentially Tell the Truth When They talk About Each Other (i.e., that the Other Is a Scumbag) but Lie Through Their Teeth About Virtually Everything Else
Wednesday, August 3, 2016
a) "The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the U.S. who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms." Samuel Adams, 1788............. b) "The Constitutions of most of our states (and of the U.S.) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it BY THEMSELVES (emphasis, mine); that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed." Thomas Jefferson, 1824............. c) "If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense." Alexander Hamilton, Federalist Papers, 28............. d) "I ask you sir, what is the militia? IT IS THE WHOLE PEOPLE (emphasis, again mine). To disarm people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them." George Mason, 1788............. e) "The Laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.......Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an unarmed man." Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria.............There it is, folks, proof-positive that the "well regulated militia" clause is not a necessary prerequisite (but rather a sufficient one - as any fucking linguist could have informed you if only you had asked) for individual gun rights and that the only way that you can severely restrict gun ownership is to do away with the Second Amendment, and rotsa ruck with that.
On the Fact that Mrs. Clinton Has Supported (and in Some Instances, Orchestrated) the Overthrow of Governments in Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Ukraine (Actions that Have Destabilized Entire Regions)
And she's supposed to be the safer choice? Heaven help us.
Tuesday, August 2, 2016
On the Fact that as Early as the Mid-'80s, No Less a Leftist Rag as "Mother Jones" Had Already Written a Scathing Article on JFK in Which They Claimed that the Fellow Wasn't a Liberal at All but a Conservative
And yet we still have uneducated leftist assholes who get all of their "information" through Google searches maintaining that Kennedy was some sort of progressive hero. How pathetic.
She's actually correct about this (kinda). Blacks do face unseen barriers SUCH AS; a) minimum wage laws that freeze a shitload of unskilled black youths out of the labor force, b) exceedingly expensive licensing fees that prevent many working-class blacks from starting a business, c) a corrupt public school system that doesn't allow for school choice or competition, d) idiotic regulations such as Dodd-Frank that make it difficult for community banks and other small businesses to compete, e) a byzantine welfare system that encourages dependency, sloth, and fatherlessness, f) moronic affirmative action policies that harm black students by creating a huge mismatch problem, etc., etc.. Granted, these aren't the same barriers that the bim was referencing but, still, there might be an opening for one of those "conversations" here.
On the Fact that Neocon Talking-Head, Ben Shapiro, Apparently Thinks that it Would Be a Good Idea for the U.S. to Go to War with a Nuclear-Armed Russia Over Lithuania, Estonia, etc.
He should start a new political party with Chris Christie and call it the "World War Three Party".......Maybe even sign up some end-of-days Christians, progressive schmucks who hate Putin, etc..
On Julian Assange's Claim that the Next Cadre of Wikileaks Releases Will Be Enough to Put Hillary Behind Bars
If there's a deity, maybe (the fact that she lied to the families of the Benghazi victims was the final straw for me).
Monday, August 1, 2016
Turkey - 1911, The Soviet Union - 1929, Germany - 1938, China - 1935, Guatemala - 1964, Uganda - 1970, Cambodia - 1956. 'Nuff said?
On the Fact that this Country Needs and Deserves to Have Gary Johnson Participating in the Presidential Debates (Whether or Not the Dude has the Prerequisite 15%)
On the Fact that (According to the British Psychological Society) Women Actually Perpetrate More Acts of Domestic Violence Against Their Partners than Men Do - http://www.medicaldaily.com/domestic-violence-against-men-women-more-likely-be-intimate-terrorists-controlling-behavior-290662
Oh man is that victim-card ever getting frayed (the fact that the rape-culture and wage-gap memes have already been destroyed and now they have to explain this).
