More from the “tolerant” left

For the last eight years there have been a few things we could count on the left to repeat, ad nauseum. First, Sascha and Malia were off limits and “attacking” Michelle for her looks or intelligence on a subject was “low.” Today, though, Barron is attacked left and right, Melania is attacked for not speaking perfect English, and if you bring up that Barron is a child or Melania is not the President, you’re then attacked for “defending them.” I have an acquaintance who blocked me when I pointed out they had, personally, told me that the Obama girls were off limits, after he went on a rant and attacked Barron. Well, today at least, the attacks aren’t aimed at a child or mother, but I don’t think that will last long.

Here we have a woman who has never served in the military, nor likely will, and I’d bet never worn a pair of military dress shoes or combat boots. Now, in the era when Trump would have been drafted (the mid 1960’s) the footwear was likely far less kind to someone with bone spurs, but as is the norm today, it doesn’t matter.

Speaking from experience, my Mother has bone spurs in both heels and has had surgeries to help, but still has them. She still played tennis after they were diagnosed, still walks fine, but with shoes meant to allow this. I know that the dress shoes in the military or combat boots would have her incapacitated in minutes, and I’m talking about the options today, not 50 years ago. But, once again, let’s ignore than a MEDICAL DOCTOR diagnosed the bone spurs, or that Clinton literally dodged the draft, rather than getting a deferrment, and Obama never served either. This only comes up when the DNC is either running a Veteran against a non-veteran, or they’ve lost. John Kerry was held up as a paragon of virtue in 2004 for serving in the U.S. Navy while George W Bush “only” served in the National Guard.

This is the blatant hypocrisy that must stop, or we’re doomed to watching our country burn. For eight years, Obama refused to properly (or at all) return salutes given as ordered, ordered Marines to hold an umbrella when they were not allowed to, and attacked our military right and left, either in quotes or by denying funds, yet it’s all about how wonderful the DNC was and how evil the GOP is today. President Trump is attacked as you see above for this story

I’ve read the article, and while I would have urged different phrasing, he is NOT attacking the troops or suggesting they are personally not fighting to win, but that 8 years of being hamstrung means WE aren’t winning wars today, and that needs to stop. If anything, this is a direct blow at the Obama legacy, yet rather than read it and understand it, we get more of the same, just attack the man because you didn’t vote for him.

Yet another attack, although on a different topic, came in the form of this image.

I would love to ask how they feel about a President who presided over the loss of a U.S. Embassy because his Secretary of State ordered troops to stop when they were headed to give aid. I wonder what he’d call a President who has crippled our military financially and logistically? Oh, wait, he voted for the man, so Benghazi was Hillary and Obama knew nothing, and of course, cutting spending was the right way to go, because he said so. I’m not sorry Hillary lost, and I called it when she “won” the DNC nomination. I’m not sorry the country once again had the electoral college do exactly what it was designed to do, that being keeping a handful of states from dragging the entire country into their choice. This is the system we have, and unless an amendment is passed, then ratified by enough states, it’s the system we’ll have for a long time. If you want to see the Democrats win again, start from within. You ran a candidate that has blatantly ignored her responsibility for the death of a U.S. Ambassador, who has told American parents that they’re not going to be the only ones raising their kids, and who said almost verbatim she would continue everything Obama started. She’s adamant that every citizen be disarmed, but will still have an army around her, and she’s just not able to accept that she lost. Start from within, learn and accept that the DNC is not the only party, nor will it ever be. Accept that just because someone doesn’t agree with you, they aren’t attacking you, or censoring you. Learn how to debate and disagree without attacking and belittling someone. Until this happens, until the left is once again a group of civil and logical adults, I see loss after loss after loss. Even more sad is the fact that Congress could be 100% GOP, the POTUS a Republican, and SCOTUS 100% conservative, leading to low taxes, a fully funded military and other departments, a balanced budget, and so many other wonderful things, and the left will still be screaming about something. It’s like the jokes have said, if Trump cures cancer he’ll be trying to put the grim reaper out of a job, and if he shat a gold brick, they’d complain it came from him.
As for those who sent these Tweets, I used screenshots as I don’t want to give them any hassle or unwanted traffic. I don’t retweet or reply to them because I don’t agree, and I also know I’d not get a debate, but hate in return. You? Well, you can make your own choice.

Society at the tipping point

Anyone who has worked in any form of retail or a service industry knows that you’re going to deal with the worst of people on an almost daily basis. From the people demanding you check the back even after you show them the “back” door is an exit, to people demanding to see the manager after an unreasonable request isn’t instantly granted, but there’s a common thread, selfishness. Growing up in the 1980’s, I don’t remember a single instance of someone screaming at a cashier over a wrong price, an expired coupon, or anything we’re seeing today, but now it’s almost so common place it’s expected. Granted, the image here is meant as a joke, as I really doubt a manager would fire a barista for not being able to put ice at the bottom of any liquid, but it’s not far off from some of the stories below it. The mindset of “instant payday” has become so pervasive though that companies are so scared of a lawsuit, they often jump to truly idiotic means to avoid it. The oddity about it though, is that it’s virtually all from one “side of the aisle,” in the “I’m going to sue” crowd. Recently, both Wendy’s and Whataburger in DFW, TX, have seen Police Officers refused service simply because they are Police Officers, and a Chili’s manager take a meal in a to go box from a man on Veteran’s day because he was told by another diner the man wasn’t a real veteran. In all cases, the company apologized (in the Chili’s case, the Pentagon called Chili’s to confirm the man’s status, yet the manager was just transferred,) but none of those three sued. Yes, social media lit up and all three companies had to move quickly to avoid a massive boycott, but that was it. Yet, when Under Armor not only refused to lash out at the new President’s administration, but was complimentary, those “on the left” acted as if he’d just killed their dog, and all but called for his execution. Ironically, when Nordstrom pulled all products in Ivanka Trump’s line, those very products because so popular they’re selling like made, and Nordstrom is seeing their sales go down, even if a small amount. Target is also seeing this, after they announced they would jump on the “use whichever restroom you want to” bandwagon, and now are cancelling expansion plans due to sales being down due to a boycott.

This is seen in other areas as well. Another social media meme about a lifeguard saving a toddler’s life, only for the Mother to berate the lifeguard and refuse to cooperate with the manager who, by law, has paperwork to fill out. Most of the comments state she knows she’d likely be reported to C.P.S. or otherwise proven to be at the very least, inattentive, and she doesn’t want that, but why berate the person who literally just saved your child’s life? The answer, again, is simply that people are so assured of their own superiority, that anything they don’t personally want done is obviously wrong and should be shunned. I can guarantee that had the child not been saved in time, not at all, or just come up crying, the lifeguard would be attacked for “not doing their job” or some such. We’re in a can’t win situation, and there’s very little chance of it changing any time soon.

A final example of this mindset is an MMA Fighter who was sued by a Ring Girl before the fight reported on, and can clearly be seen in the video almost running from the one in the ring this time. He is literally grabbed and pulled over, only to cross his hands and drop his head due to fear of any action he takes being seen as harassment of any kind. Yet, if he were to sue the organizers for mental trauma, or claim a disability, he’d be laughed at as “men cannot be victimized.” Sadly, it likely will take a lawsuit from a man like this fighter, claiming they are so afraid of being sued for simply making any physical contact with the ring girls that they cannot fight at all, and suing for the disability pay and so on, for the world to begin to realize that we’re now in a world where discrimination is a common issue, and done by those who scream that they’re discriminated against.

Moving forward, although still on this topic in a way, is the current topic screamed by “feminists” the world over, that being “rape culture.” We’ve seen women assert that a man “raped” them by looking at her, or in his mind, and try to sue, although so far, none of that has gone anywhere, but now we have the concept of reverse rape, that being when a woman wants to have sex with a man, but he says no. You didn’t misread that, it’s now apparently “rape” to refuse sex. This is the point where men are told to “shut up and do what we say to, and also, don’t complain when by doing what we tell you to, we later claim that you forced your way on us after we decide we didn’t really want what we said we wanted.” This will happen, as a woman will tell some man she’ll cry rape if he doesn’t sleep with her, then at a later point, she’ll still cry rape and ruin his life. Sadly, you could have video of her telling him “I’ll say you raped me” and some judge will rule you had no right to record her, and it will still be game over for the guy who was hamstrung from the off.

This is the point where we either slam on the brakes and demand logic and adult behavior be the norm again, not only from society, but from those in power. We must tell the judges we don’t want them doing whatever they want and changing laws here and there when they feel they should, we just want them to rule based on the law of the land as it’s written. We need to tell Congress we don’t want to be lectured about how racist or sexist we are because we oppose a bill we haven’t been allowed to read, or that we must allow a bill to be passed before we can read it. And finally, we must tell the President that we want someone who will work for Americans’ interests, not any other country. Yes, we have allies and we must stand beside them, but that never requires that the US economy be sacrificed, or American jobs be sent over seas just to prop up a foreign country. We are the only country today being ordered around by the U.N. while they happily take our money, mostly because the other member states fall in line, or are exempted from what they demand the U.S. do. It’s time to tell the U.N. we will not go along any more, and we will also not pay or house them. Once the world sees we’re embracing their philosophy of take care of home first, maybe, just maybe, they’ll wake up. The same may happen when “feminists” realize that calling every little thing that slightly irks them rape is going to land them in hot water, or threatening to sue no longer gets you free crap, maybe we’ll see people starting to act like adults again, but I’m not holding my breath.

A dangerous path

It seems that officials in California are now being open about wanting to silence all dissenting opinions. At present, they’re introducing a bill to require non-profit organizations to name all donors. We’ve seen TV stations bow to pressure to cancel TV shows because the stars are Christian, businesses sued out of business for holding to their beliefs, but now it’s everyone who simply gives money to a charity organization at risk. Suppose someone who supports abortion finds out you gave to a Pro-Life group? They’d have all of your information, and mark my words, if this is passed, we WILL see attacks and possibly murders, based only on someone donating to a charity.

The left has been losing their minds slowly since the 1970’s, but it’s been kicked into overdrive in the last few years. While accusing the right of being evil, violent, and wanting to silence everyone, they’re only describing themselves. The “protests” at airports have seen people attacked and knocked unconscious, and it’s only getting worse. The question though, is how do we turn around? How do we fix this?

Simply put, we can’t just fix it, but we can slow it down. If this passes and you’re in California, mail money orders and don’t give your name, or give cash and give a false name. You don’t have to give ID when donating, and the charities know it. Next, get the list of who’s donating to groups that incite violence, or otherwise spread hate. Don’t use them, but let it be known that you have a list of all donors to “Group XXX” and it wasn’t hard to get. For those not in California, don’t visit or otherwise spend any money that goes into the state. Maybe, if the state government sees tourism dollars going down, they’ll realize they aren’t the only people in the world. Hollywood has already threatened to cancel the Oscars, and some celebs are calling for a full strike (no movies at all) until Trump gives them everything they want. I say we make the choice for them, stop going to any movies with those people in them. They seem dead set on ordering the world around, then threatening to hold us at gunpoint by threatening to not perform, so let’s tell them it’s no longer their choice. None of them will be financially hurt if they stopped today, and trust me, there are 4 actors trying to get into the business for every celeb in Hollywood, we won’t be hurting for movies to watch or TV shows.

The people screaming for secession or a strike need to be forcibly reminded that they are not in charge, they are not the only people that matter, and that they cannot bully others into doing what they want. If that means I read and listen to CD’s for a while, so be it.
