Jay Inslee calls the conscientious “Extremists”

Here’s another Unfit For The Internet award.  Although, it most certainly qualifies as unfit for anything.

If you haven’t seen the videos from Planned Parenthood selling body parts from aborted babies you should.  They are truly shocking and abhorrent.  The videos highlight something that the local and federal governments were not aware of.  That Planned Parenthood not only convinces women to have abortions and carries them out, but they harvest the bodies of the killed babies and sells the body parts.  Paying special attention to the parts that will bring in the most money.  The callous nature that these doctors show for the bodies of the babies shouldn’t be allowed.  Even Hillary Clinton has come out and said that the videos were disturbing.

Now comes in Jay Inslee, the moronic Governor of the State of Washington, to open his mouth and show why electing him was a mistake.  He released a statement after he received letters from people who have a conscience asking for either an investigation to start into these allegations or funding being removed from Planned Parenthood.  It’s not surprising that letters like these be sent to every governor in the union given the nature of this problem, but Governor Inslee doesn’t see it that way.  The Seattle PI’s article states…

“Planned Parenthood provides millions of women across the country access to a full range of affordable health care and family planning services,” Inslee said in a statement.  “National extremist organizations are engaged in a concerted effort to discredit, and ultimately eliminate, an organization that so many women rely on.” (emphasis mine)

That’s right, Inslee is calling people who conscientiously object to the selling of the body parts of the babies they are aborting “extremists”.  That’s right, if you have a conscience and feel that at the least an investigation to these allegations should be started, you are an extremist.  It’s apparently wrong to even ask for an investigation into likely illegal activities shown in the video.

But you would be remiss if you thought that this was an original thought out of the brain of Inslee.  It sounds as if he’s just parroting the how the President of Planned Parenthood feels about those who caught them in the act.  His statement and his choice of words speaks volumes about how he feels with those of conscience.  He’s telegraphed his actions and will not do his sworn duty to uphold the law.

And for his part, he has earned the Unfit For The Internet award.  Governor Inslee, you are unfit!

How many ways can you say something?

There’s so many ways that Democrats have upped their game which is causing their wins.  The Republicans and Conservatives have learned about some of these, but many they have not.  One of the biggest ways Democrats beat Republicans and Conservatives is how they construct their message

There was something that President Obama said early in his presidency that tipped me off to this tactic. I can’t remember the exact instance, but if memory serves me right, it was when the bulk of the country was against the bill that became the “Affordable Health Care Act”.  When President Obama was asked a question about either what he thought about the lack of support or what he thought went wrong, he admitted that the message wasn’t on point.  I remember hearing a few Conservative and Republican pundits think that he meant that his talks weren’t written well enough.  When I heard that, I thought that as well initially.  After thinking about it, the message meant the whole message, not just a bunch of talks and his comments, but the message that every Democrat Legislator, reporter, pundit, and blogger said. Its as if the Democrats very carefully structure and word their message so that it appeals to the most possible people.  In one way or another, the message is repeated not just by politicians, but by pundits and media in a seemingly coordinated effort.

This is evident in their constant changing of the terminology they use for what they are talking about if it’s not sticking.  A perfect example is this “Climate Change”.  Do you remember that the official term is “Anthropogenic Global Warming”?  Anthro as in anthropology, or the study of humans and their works.  Genic as in genesis, or the beginning of something.  Well, that’s a very unsexy and technical term that the many passionate voters wouldn’t understand let alone consistently pronounce or remember.  I would bet that if you surveyed these voters and asked them what “Anthropogenic Global Warming” was they wouldn’t be able to correctly answer.  However, they would understand “Global Warming”.  So, why not just get rid of “Anthropogenic” and just call it “Global Warming”?  That’s what the Democrats did.  But when there was legitimate evidence questioning the science and methods used to promote AGW they didn’t stop there, they went straight to “Climate Change”.  I mean, who would dare deny that the climate changes over the millennia?  Of course, anyone who disagrees with “Anthropogenic Global Warming” gets thrown into a group who denies “Climate Change”, regardless if that’s a logical fallacy.  This change is a changing of the message.

Most Conservatives and Republicans see that the Democrats do this.  Yet, we stick with the same tired language.  We’re against entitlements, yet we know that we need to provide support for those who are un/under employed to find a good job to be self sufficient.  But the message sounds like we think the poor are lazy.  We question the “consensus” of “Climate Change”, yet we love and support Conservation efforts.  But it’s easily changed to we want to make the air dirty and poison the water.  We don’t want to have an open immigration system and have a secure country, but we understand the desire that immigrants have to live the American Dream which needs rule of law.  Yet our message is easily contorted to sound like we are overly nationalistic and are xenophobic.  We don’t like it when police abuse their authority, but we support them because we know that they have to deal with some of the worst aspects of humanity.  Yet the message sounds like we want a police state, when in reality it’s the Democrats who want a police state. Conservatives understand that there is a whole picture, a context behind the clip, the struggle of the poor to make ends meet, yet we don’t know how to express our thoughts and desires in a way that helps those undecided voters understand what we are about and what we want.  Colloquial language changes, we should adapt our selves to these changes.

Here’s a good example of how changing your message works.  Watch the whole thing, it’s short…

Granted, the wording is a bit “bleeding heart”, but do you see how it makes the message different?  Instead of just saying “I’m blind”, saying something that others can relate to helps.  Avoiding words whose meanings and impacts have diminished over time and replacing them with more descriptive language would help.

The point is, we need to construct our message right, so that when the Democrat attack machine (major media, media apologists, political groups) try to construct an attack, their attacks sound more like they are attacking the very people they need to win elections.  This means the Black community, the Immigrant community, and those ever so important undecided voters.  These voters are important and ARE disillusioned with the Democrat party.  Not just because they are Black, or Hispanic, or Immigrant, but because with their support we gain the support of many more.

One word of caution.  We’ve caught the Democrats in lies as they spin their web of words.  I would say more lies than in any other period of time, there’s no need to list them here.  We must take care not to fall into this trap.  While the Democrats can get caught in multiple lies and still garner huge amounts of support (both in voters and in funds), a Republican or Conservative can not.  We must be careful in any messaging so that our message is true and honest.

I know I’m not the first conservative to talk about this.  This is something that I’ve noticed over the years.  We need to adapt to the changing cultural changes.  It doesn’t mean that we change our values that we hold dear.  It doesn’t mean that we have to give in to Progressive pressure in Congress or in the White House.  In fact, it could mean that we could win more and more.  We just have to wake up and look at how we are saying it, not necessarily what.  If we become good at it, we very well may be the ones who drive the change in language.

Also, I’m not an English major, or even a literary genus so please don’t take anything that I’ve written as a good example.  There’s folks out there with far better wordsmithing abilities than me.

Worse than Nixon…

Here’s a good article about how the Obama Administration (including the State Department) has tried to get around FOIA requests.

“…the Obama White House has turned stonewalling into an art form. A favorite tactic is to ignore or string out the requests. That’s what State did in Mrs. Clinton’s case, claiming it simply couldn’t get around to issuing her emails until next year…”

Well, that’s surprising.  No, not really.

Progressive Media takes a turn for the worse

We all know the season.  We need to find a replacement for President Obama and there’s no shortage of people who think they are capable, ready, and what this country needs.  With that there’s always the media who’s willing to try to persuade our viewpoints.  This provides for us a plethora of clips of media members asking some really stupid questions.  Gotcha questions.  One sided biased questions.  Even questions that might not even be questions but more of a editorial comment posed as a question.  We’ve already seen a few so far, but this has to be one of the worst so far.  Just sit back and get ready to get that creepy uncomfortable feeling down your back…

Yeah, um, apparently Cruz isn’t Cuban enough for Halperin and he wants the world to know.  Sorry, but that’s just a jerk thing to do Halperin.  You earned to Unfit for the Internet award!

How to troll Liberals and Progressives

Here’s another installment for the “Unfit for the Internet” files.  My daughter brought this to my attention yesterday.  Apparently, it’s making the rounds in the Progressive/Liberal low information voters right now.

blog-fake-news-story

About a week ago a one of those fake news sites (fake as in complete satire al a The Onion) posted up this story, about how the Hose Republicans are drafting up a bill that would give the First Daughters a dress code.  The so called “bill” is going to be titled the “The Respectable First Family Act”.  Which from the deranged mind of a Progressive, seems perfectly legit.

Here’s a snippet of the article:

“I shouldn’t need to justify why this bill is necessary to anyone, not after seeing what they were dressed like,” says the bill’s author, Congressman Richard Head (R-UT). “Did you see the photos from the march? The First Daughters looked like pole dancers. You could clearly see their knees and even an inch or two of their thighs. And one of them was wearing go-go dancer boots…

Now, this article isn’t really what I want to bring to your attention.  What I want you to do is search for “house republican dress code“.  Now, by the time you read this, the search results may be different.  However, there’s many sites of people posting comments containing their disgust for those Republicans, using names like “racist”, “morons” and other not so kind words.  That is until someone kindly let’s them know that yes, it is satire.  And then there’s a near audible sigh of relief and a well, their so stupid anyway comment.

And there’s a few sites which have posted this entirely as well with no indication that it’s a fake story.  Who knows if the people on the sites even care so long as it paints their opponents in a bad light.

Yeah, you’ve been trolled.  You’ve exposed yourself as the hateful, dismissive person you are.  I want to see more Progressives and Liberals being exposed for who they really are.

The Curse of The Inept Administration

Remember back when President Obama procured the release of a solder that had been captive by the Taliban for years?  Army Sgt Bowe Burgdhal who was held captive by the Taliban was released in exchange for 5 Taliban solders from the Gitmo detention center.  President even held a press conference to proudly show the American people that we do not leave solders behind.

Well, flash forward to today and we see that the Army is officially charging Sergeant Burgdhal with desertion.

So, we release 5 murderous creeps out into the wild of the Mid East just so we can charge a solder with Desertion.  This just highlights how inept this administration is.  How much harm will these 5 cause now?

National Review has more on this story.

Jesse Jackson tells the Tech Industry “You are Racist!”

Lets say that you’ve owned a store for 20 some odd years. Through the years you’ve gotten the reputation in the city and the industry you serve as one of the best stores for handicapped shoppers. So much so that other local stores have followed your example and methods (which you have published and given talks about) and have increased satisfaction of handicapped shoppers in the city. In fact, you have started a trend in the industry to think of handicapped shoppers world wide.

Now, let’s say that some guy drives up to your store, parks in the handicapped parking space, uses the handicapped door sensor on your doors to come in, walks up the wheelchair ramp, past the chair carts, into the store and past the cash registers made for a variety of challenged people, past the employees specifically there to help customers get their purchases to their vehicles. He comes right up to you and tells you that you and your industry don’t care about handicapped people, but he’s only talking about people who use cats as service animals.

Jesse Jackson just did that to the Tech Industry in Seattle.

“The reality is the high-tech companies are more segregated than the Ferguson police department, at least they had two blacks on the police department.”

Okay, that part makes me so mad that I’m almost physically ill. I’ve been working in the Tech Industry for 20 years, 14 of those years here in the Seattle area. I’ve been involved in interviewing and hiring individuals for the past 7 or so years. I’ve interviewed more individuals that are non-white than white individuals. It always comes down to two questions, the most important of which is Does the candidates capabilities meet the needs of of the company? It’s not based on race, or culture, or sex, or any of the other things that just don’t make sense. Why? Because the Tech Industry, unlike Jesse himself, realizes that talent comes from anywhere and everywhere. It doesn’t do a company any good to limit his talent pool if he’s looking to hire the best he can find.

But, never mind the facts, Jesse is only interested in pushing a false narrative.  And, of course, as the dutiful liberal outlet, King 5 doesn’t question Jackson’s data, let alone his motives.

Jackson is supposed to meet with the Microsoft Executive team to discuss why they are so racist.  Satya Nadella, Microsofts CEO from Hyderabad India, no doubt will correct him.  The only fear I have is that some of them will capitulate to agree to something stupid.  I hope for the sake of us share-holders that they just grab some selfies and show him the door and continue their current practices.

Of course, Jesse is just hunting for money for his group, much like he did in Ferguson, before he was essentially ran out of town. And now he’s trying to shake the largest trees with deep pockets. No doubt he’ll get the money he’s after, because here in the Left Coast there’s sheeple with money to burn.

This is nothing more than a scam by a scam artist.

When giving thanks this year, think of this

Recently I learned a fact about the Pilgrims that settled in Plymouth that I wasn’t taught in my history classes.  Given the Progressive bent in education and the tendency of revising history for political purposes, I’m not entirely surprised.

Now, we know that the Pilgrims came to seek religious freedom.  They were puritans who wanted to be free to practice their religion the way then saw fit.  This much we know.  However, the one fact that doesn’t seem to be in the history books and all the stories is that the Pilgrims intended, and did for 2 years, for Plymouth to be a Collectivist Utopia based on the Communism of Plato’s Republic.  They wanted to take care of everyone on the colony so everyone worked and shared the fruit of their labors.  Nobody had private property and everyone got an equal share of the work and food.  What happened as a result of following this may be a reason why this has been excluded from history textbooks across the nation.

Now, the Governor of the colony, William Bradford, wrote down in his journal what the result was.

As Governor Bradford of the Plymouth Colony explained in his old English (though with the spelling modernized):

“For the young men that were able and fit for labor and service did repine that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men’s wives and children, without recompense. The strong, or men of parts, had no more division of food, clothes, etc. then he that was weak and not able to do a quarter the other could; this was thought injustice. The aged and graver men to be ranked and equalized in labor, and food, clothes, etc. with the meaner and younger sort, thought it some indignant and disrespect unto them. And for men’s wives to be commanded to do service for other men, as dressing their meat, washing their clothes, etc. they deemed it a kind of slavery, neither could husbands brook it.”

It’s not surprising to me that there was resentment.  What’s interesting is that they did give the system a fighting chance, to the point that they had to make drastic changes or die of starvation:

Realizing that another season like those that had just passed would mean the extinction of the entire community, the elders of the colony decided to try something radically different: the introduction of private property rights and the right of the individual families to keep the fruits of their own labor.

As Governor Bradford put it:

“And so assigned to every family a parcel of land, according to the proportion of their number for that end . . . This had a very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted then otherwise would have been by any means the Governor or any other could use, and saved him a great deal of trouble, and gave far better content. The women now went willingly into the field, and took their little-ones with them to set corn, which before would a ledge weakness, and inability; whom to have compelled would have been thought great tyranny and oppression.”

They switched to private property and individual responsibility.  Each family was responsible for their own.  As a result, they produced more as individual units.  So much so that they were able to trade surplus with others.   Communism failed and Freedom prevailed.

The last quote that I want to provide is this.

“The experience that was had in this common course and condition, tried sundry years, and that amongst the Godly and sober men, may well convince of the vanity and conceit of Plato’s and other ancients; — that the taking away of property, and bringing into a common wealth, would make them happy and flourishing; as if they were wiser than God. For this community (so far as it was) was found to breed confusion and discontent, and retard much employment that would have been to their benefit and comfort.”

The last of my thoughts is this.  When the LDS church headed west to avoid persecution and settled in the Great Salt Lake valley they did the same thing.  They gave each family a portion of the land to till and farm as their own.  For those not familiar with LDS church history, the members of the church prevailed and grew into a very industrious people.  Many visitors were surprised at how beautiful they had made the valley.  The state symbol is the Beehive, which symbolizes industry.

Read the full article from Richard Ebeling, he does a great job at describing what is going on.

What are you being conditioned to believe “code words” are being used for?

Here’s the latest installment of true “Unfit for the Internet”.

There’s been some articles floating around which are just range from lazy to asinine. The sad thing is, there are some folks who actually believe this. Which is why these articles are boarder on insidious.

Apparently, while claiming the term “cracker” is a “term of endearment”, there’s a few “code words” that when used really are racially charged words to describe something, anything, that might be related to a Black person or persons. Of course, the only people who are really using them in a way to be racist are only Republicans or Conservatives. Joe Biden can use the words and not be racist, cause he’s rich white Democrat who just wants the Blacks to do his bidding.

Curious what these words are?

  1. Thug
  2. Urban/Inner City
  3. Welfare and Food Stamps
  4. Law and Order
  5. Cut Taxes

“OMG, I’m like, horrified that people still use these words!” Although some of these are terms, not words, we’ll let that slide. While I could just go on and on about these words, I’m going to quote from a reply to the article because it’s pretty good. Go to the article and look for Harry Merkin’s response at the bottom of the page.

1) THUG http://misterroosevelt.blogspot.com/2008/06/suprising-origins-of-word-thug.html.
All this time I never knew black people were actually from India.

2) URBAN http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/urban.
Do any of you people KNOW what a dictionary is?

3) STATE’S RIGHTS http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/States’_rights.
In American political discourse, states’ rights refers to political powers reserved for the U.S. state governments rather than the federal government according to the United States Constitution, reflecting especially the enumerated powers of Congress and the Tenth Amendment.

4) LAW AND ORDER I don’t even NEED to give proof of how asinine THIS ONE is. You don’t think white people commit crimes? Jeffery Dahmer used to EAT black people. Casey Anthony killed her child. Charles Manson, Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin….I could go on. Jesus, do you think every criminal is black? Guess that makes the TV show LAW and ORDER the most racist shit being broadcast today.

5) CUT TAXES This word is racist? Hard working Americans don’t like paying taxes. People too lazy to get off their asses and work and expect others to pay their way, don’t worry about a higher tax bracket.

Some of the other responses are entertaining of course. One even suggests that the writing is using an Andy Kauffman tactic. Act like an idiot so people think you are an idiot.

Now, we all laugh at this and think that they aren’t serious, or that nobody could possibly be that gullible. Surely this is new. But it’s not. I found these words grouped together in this same claim in what may be the originating article. Of course the original article is targeting Senator Paul Ryan and his racist terms in a speech he gave. The list in this article has 8 words, 5 of which got carried over to the article above. The 3 dropped words are “forced busing”, “shariah law” and “illegal alien”. The last two are just as stupid, but extra because the connotations have nothing to do with race, that is unless you are going to be disingenuous.

“Shariah Law” obviously is religious word, one of the Muslim faith. If anything, it’s a religious word not racist. Because a large portion of the worlds population is Muslim, and that spans many races, how can its usage be racist? If anyone knows anything about Islam is that it’s one of the largest religions in the world which spans across the globe. Which means that it covers all races. So, which race is using that term racist against?

Ironically, by mentioning President Bush and the Iraq war the author is doing the exact same thing that she is claiming Ryan is doing with using the term “forced busing”. She “simply dropped in the phrase[s] to trigger resentment and gain supporters.” Again. it looks like the author is being disingenuous.

“illegal alien” is another term that is often misrepresented by Socialists, Progressives, and Liberals. It is in fact a technical term that is used in government documentation. While these people make these assertions about things they know nothing about, those of us who have actually gone through the immigration system and deal with it often understand that this term is in no way racist. The simple proof is asking the author which race she thinks this is pointed against. It’s obvious that she’s talking about Mexico. Of course, Mexico is a country, not a race. Then there’s the claim that it’s against Latinos. But again, anyone who knows anything about our immigration system know s that one of the biggest problem we have is people overstaying their visas. These offenders are also “illegal aliens”. And which race is that? Well, just about from every country in the world.

The thing that is interesting in this whole thing is that if the use of these words were really so truly racist and an actual problem the articles wouldn’t be pointing to only 1 group of individuals, the Republicans. It would be pointed to all people. It’s my assertion that these articles point to people doing just what they claim the Republicans are doing. They are trying to set up “code words” for common themes used by Republicans so that when Republicans use them people just push them off as Racist and the condemnation begins.

These types of articles are truly “unfit for the internet”.

Is he just being a contrarian or is there something to what he’s saying?

Gary Oldman was recently interviewed by Playboy and had some responses that will catch the ear of a few people.  Since its Playboy, I won’t be linking to their site but I am looking for an alternative link.  However, Independent Journal Review has sections of the interview available for reading without scantily clad women leering in the background.  Needless to say, some of his responses somewhat NSFW, or at least read at home away from kids.

Looks like he and I share similar feelings about “Political Correctness”:

“I just think political correctness is crap. That’s what I think about it. I think it’s like, take a f***ing joke. Get over it. … I don’t know about Mel. He got drunk and said a few things, but we’ve all said those things. We’re all f***ing hypocrites. That’s what I think about it.”

And the intellectual dishonesty when it comes to calling out racism:

“It’s our culture now, absolutely. At the Oscars, if you didn’t vote for 12 Years a Slave, you were a racist. You have to be very careful about what you say. I do have particular views and opinions that most of this town doesn’t share, but it’s not like I’m a fascist or a racist. There’s nothing like that in my history.”

Lot’s of people fee the same way as Gary when it comes the the hypocrisy of Liberal Media:

“Well, if I called Nancy Pelosi a c**t—and I’ll go one better, a f***ing useless c**t—I can’t really say that. But Bill Maher and Jon Stewart can, and nobody’s going to stop them from working because of it.”

One thing that is pointed out that has people hemming and hawing is the fact that despite his amazing body of work, he has only a single Academy Awards nomination.  Obviously with some of the things he’s said there will be a few roles he’ll not be invited to read for.  However, that doesn’t mean that we can’t support people like him.

And if you really need an answer the title of this post poses, yes, there is something to what he is saying.
