No Commie Shake for Donald

The Trump-Merkel no-handshake is driving the media and the statist know-nothings insane.

Making the presidency irrelevant again. Now that’s progress.

Folks on Facebook and YouTube are commenting with the perfectly predictable, “he’s so arrogant and disrespectful” …

“Arrogant and disrespectful”? But if Trump played the game (politics) with a fake smile and a wimpy handshake, he’d be a good guy … have I got that right? This is the result of collective government schooling churning out obedient round pegs for their mandatory round holes.

The Child Planners

Posted in category The Child Planners

The sickness of the control-freak, child central planners who want to structure every damn second of every child’s day under the guise of “safety” or “development” or “physical activity.” To quote:

As many schools reduce or even eliminate recess time for students, the CDC has issued guidelines: planned activities are ideal rather than simply sectioning off time for play.

Here’s a comment that ought to get the attention of folks: “Sometimes kids may be out for recess but they’re not being active,” said Michelle Carter, senior program manager of SHAPE America. “SHAPE America” is Newspeak claptrap. How is “active” defined? Perhaps smart or inquisitive children – or introverts – would rather spend time alone identifying plants, bugs, or collecting cool rocks rather than taking part in collective play sessions that are of no interest to them.

Wisconsin Butter Politics: Making the Competition Illegal

Tuesday, February 21, 2017
Posted in category Food Politics

Butter interests in the state of Wisconsin are forcing out the competition with a “butter grading” law, and Kerrygold consumers are fuming all over social media. A Kerrygold butter seller in Wisconsin can be subject to a fine of $1,000 or 6 months in jail.

The issue here is an obscure state law from the 1970s that requires all butter sold in Wisconsin to be tested by a panel of experts and issued a letter grade for quality.

As a butter made in Ireland, Kerrygold is not graded in the U.S.

A Cookie Dough Bubble?

Posted in category Boom-Bubble Phenomenon

Sometimes you can sell anything in a bubble environment. Like cookie dough “treats.”

It’s a “sensation.” Lines all around the block in NYC, and the place “can barely keep up.” Note near the end of the video: the customers are all 20-something females taking selfies while eating their cookie dough. The targeted demographic is clear. Here’s the store website, and here’s a place where you can get cookie dough at retail stores.

Disassembling a Vaccination Spin From the MSM

Sunday, February 5, 2017

From Jeremy R. Hammond, a journalist who picks apart propaganda about as good as anyone out there. He completely takes apart an awful spin piece from The Atlantic propagandizing for the US government, the CDC, and Vaccination Nation. To quote:

As former CDC Director Julie Gerberding was consequently forced to acknowledge, “Now, we all know that vaccines can occasionally cause fevers in kids. So if a child was immunized, got a fever, had other complications from the vaccines. And if you’re predisposed with a mitochondrial disorder, it can certainly set off some damage. Some of the symptoms can be symptoms that have characteristics of autism.”

In other words, despite the government and media’s insistence that vaccines can’t cause autism, it’s an acknowledged fact that vaccines can cause brain damage resulting in developmental regression.

Gerberding, incidentally, left her government job to become head of Merck’s vaccine division.

This trash from The Atlantic is standard fare for the utterly disgraceful mainstream media, which serve to manufacture consent for policies like the CDC’s childhood vaccine schedule just as they manufacture consent for US foreign policies, as they did for the illegal war on Iraq. Rather than properly educating the public about vaccines, the mainstream media continuously misinforms, serving not to illuminate the subject but to keep people in the dark. The media’s disgraceful reporting on the subject is criminally irresponsible. Rather than encouraging open discussion and debate, the media attempt to shut down any dissent with its propagandistic hit pieces.

Sierra Club: “Abortions Protect the Environment”

Posted in category Leftism

Says the Executive Director of the Sierra Club: “One of the ways we can get to a sustainable population” (less people) is through women being empowered to have abortions. But immigration (more people) is not bad for the environment. So we need more refugees and less American babies. This is the sickness of The Left. Tucker Carlson totally destroys this asswipe with some very basic questions.

$40,000 a year in tuition: learn how to make up your own reality

Friday, February 3, 2017

Imagine this. From the University of Michigan, that bastion of Diaper Pin logic, comes a “social justice art festival” for which the purpose of the event is, to quote: “The event aims to explore how art can used as a mechanism to promote social justice and/or change. The theme for this year is In Our Space: Using Art to Name Our Reality.”

“Name our reality” — you caught that, right? And you know those who are joining their cultural Marxist friends in making up their reality don’t have a clue as to the philosophical implications of such a statement.

And note the “make art not war” and “mind open” logo design. But when I press the buttons on these birds, on Facebook, concerning their Dear Obama’s eight years of stepping up the total warfare, bombing, droning, and murder-brown-people foreign policy, they unfriend me rather than face the facts. Making their own reality, indeed. What pitiful, spineless fools.

In “The Nation”

Oh my – this letter seen in The Nation, a journal of fiery leftist opinion.” Letter to the Editor from a lone wolf. A snippet:

The country’s degeneration will take at least a decade to reverse. Before America can be great again, it will have to revert to the gold standard to give stability to the currency.

Garrison Keillor: “We Elitists”

Tuesday, January 24, 2017
Posted in category Liberals

Garrison Keillor calls himself a “liberal elitist.” You would never even think otherwise just seeing the man in the visual sense. You can picture this tired, old bird walking around the “liberal elite” section of Portland, carrying his organic granola and Tofurkey inside his reusable grocery bag, looking for the Birkenstock store. He thinks that his political party preferences make him a spaghetti-making, opera-snob, yoga-fied elitist. I’ve always liked him as an entertainer, and that’s been hard to do given his propensity for hating the common man. Keillor’s article in the Washington Post would never have made it into print in the MSM if the subjects of his insults were minorities, LGBT, or feminists. To quote:

The Trumpers never expected their guy to actually win the thing, and that’s their problem now. They only wanted to whoop and yell, boo at the H-word, wear profane T-shirts, maybe grab a crotch or two, jump in the RV with a couple six-packs and go out and shoot some spotted owls. It was pleasure enough for them just to know that they were driving us wild with dismay — by “us,” I mean librarians, children’s authors, yoga practitioners, Unitarians, birdwatchers, people who make their own pasta, opera goers, the grammar police, people who keep books on their shelves, that bunch.

…The uneducated white males who elected him are the vulnerable ones and they will not like what happens next.

I’m all for stereotyping in facts, but Keillor can’t even get that right. Additionally, the rise of Trump is predominantly due to the poison of politics that worships and coddles the do-nothing welfare class while holding the middle class captive in a corrupt political system of wealth-grabbing and redistribution.

Additionally, according to Keillor, people who side with one political party are easily defined: “Democrats can spend four years raising heirloom tomatoes, meditating, reading Jane Austen, traveling around the country, tasting artisan beers”… that, along with making your own pasta; grammar policing; and following the dumbed-down yoga fad. Now let anyone who is not on the Left make such broad-category stereotypes, and immediately, the political correctness police swoop down to deem that person intolerant and purge them from respectable society.

In reality, it is Keillor who is over and done, and so, goodbye. And may his fictional Lake Wobegon be taken over by Catholics, ugly children, crotch-grabbing rappers, and RV parks.
