Political Saturday

Since Bacall and I do not lean left, I think I will post political stuff here on Saturday's in partial rebuttal to all the idiot crap we see all week.

I am trying to adopt Scalia's POV that some very good people have some very bad views. But, I don't have the mind or personality that gentleman had. Not by a long shot.





More serious. It amazes us to see the rainbow folks advocating for the Islamist agenda. They must be clueless that Islamist throw gay's off buildings.

This an article on how Islamists cater to liberals to gain their own agenda.

Happy Thought:
If California takes the John Calhoun route and succeeds, libtards will be backbenchers for a long time.

  1. Be patient. All will be good. There's a limit to just how much stupidity will take place before change eventually wins out. A lot has happened in a short time and admittedly some of it has not been completely thought through. But in the long run it will work and work for the good of this country regardless of how many haters want it to fail.

  2. I, as a Pro-Black Man, am thoroughly enjoying the hilarity that is the Trump "presidency" and all the hypocrisy that it is exposing to the world which those in charge have made it a life mission to crap on.

    It's just funny to see just how many people voted for Trump based on fear. I just wonder how many more excuses can they give Geoffrey the Worst before they admit to Buyer's Remorse.

    Best part of this is the self lie that this will get better with Geoffrey. It won't. His track record speaks for itself.

    Now before you lot decide to label me with any of your colorful attempts at word play, note this. I am somewhat above classification.

    By the way. Since Republicans have this belief that they hold all the answers, perhaps one of you can answer one question that no one has been able to in the past two decades that I have asked it.

    Conservatives, just what is it that you are conserving?

    1. We voted out of for fear of Clinton.
      Would attempt to label you. Never understand much of what you write here or elsewhere going back a decade.
      Conserving our way of life. Resent those who want to change it.

    2. If you look back at all my posts (which I had the courage to leave in place), you will see that not once have I mentioned you by name, or used any of your pictures. Not a single time. So you will cease and desist with this now. Post whatever dreck you desire, but leave. Me. Out. Of. It. Period.

    3. Alternative facts, I assume. You lit out after me when I suggested you quit whining. And then you did 2/3 posts about being called a snowflake. OBB might not have been mentioned by name, but it was obvious who you were assailing. I could really care less what you think, but I will continue to post as I please. As will you. You love cyber battlement.

  3. I do not want my picture associated with this dreadful blog. Take it down immediately or I will report you.

    1. OK, you had your fun insulting me. I had my fun with your kind award.
      PS Your pictures are not in any way protected.

  4. A few years ago I was scared of Islamism. The rise of Isis, the collapse of Syria and the spread of their death cult was quite horrific. I read about them every day, I tried to understand what on earth was going on. Eventually I could recognise it for what it was; a death cult which would burn itself out. It is already dying. A few days ago I realised that I was no longer afraid of Isis or reading endlessly about Islamism. Instead I am reading endlessly about Donald Trump and his unconsidered words and actions. I have become fearful of what each new day will bring. It is hard to put into a brief comment quite what makes me fear him most but I suspect it is probably the lying. I cannot abide liars. I know there are liars of all political persuasions but I dislike them all equally. Why I fear Trump is because he lies so blatantly and yet people still believe him, out of faith. Misplaced faith is dangerous wherever it occurs. Noone holds a monopoly on wisdom or being able to plan wisely for the future. It's a one way street. We have to put faith in our leaders. But we should never put faith in liars. It won't end well.

    1. Radical Islamism has been around since the git-go. It was founded on theft, murder and salvery.
      As for lies, no one beats Clinton for lying and deception.

    2. That doesn't really answer the problem of putting your faith in someone who simply doesn't tell the truth, though. Two wrongs don't make a right. Take Saturday night, for example. On Saturday, Donald Trump said terrible things happened in Sweden on Friday night and suggested this was caused by refugees or immigration or Muslims. They weren't because nothing happened in Sweden on Friday night. Absolutely nothing at all. Now that may have been a genuine mistake, a misperception, a mishearing of news. It may be that a correction and apology is in order and if it were forthcoming I could accept that. Everyone's human, everyone makes mistakes, although you might hope that a president would check and double check their facts before commenting on international affairs. But I predict that there will be no correction, no apology because there haven't been with any of the other misleading statements in the past. Your president is ok about creating misconceptions. They don't worry him. They bother me though, a lot. Misconceptions can generate fear and intolerance where there is no need for fear.

      Similarly, your portrayal of Islam as a religion founded on murder, theft and slavery is a misconception that could engender fear in others. Sure Islam wasn't founded on peace and love, but it was intended to bring justice and harmony to Arabia at the time. Judging the origins of Islam by 21st century American standards is as inappropriate as judging the origins of Judeo-Christian religions by those standards (or 19th and 20th century Judeo-Christian American standards, for that matter). Some of the old testament rules are thoroughly barbaric. That doesn't make all modern American Christians into barbarians though. There is a world of difference between the Islam practised by my neighbours and that promoted by Isis. They are not the same thing at all. I am frightened by the Islamists who want to establish an Islamic state but not by my Muslim neighbours who consider my country's laws to provide the basis for living out their religion in peace. I would be frightened to live as a black woman in 19th century America but I would hope that I could live a good, rewarding, successful life there in 2017. Isis and Islamism is not the same as Islam. My Muslim friends and neighbours are good and decent people. I am sure you find the same with those Muslims of your acquaintance.

    1. Hard to tell as most post anonymous and don't bother to use any name.
      I suspect it's like all the libs that were going to leave the country.
      But, we really don't care. We have always been a niche blog.

    2. Just looked at the stats, up 40% on Saturday.

  6. And just what way of life is that, "Bogey"? Details please. Does that way of life include everyone in this nation in a fair a just society that respects all Cultures, or one that is a pryamid scene with one small segment at its top being supported by Everyone else?

  7. Oh and by the way, Radical Christianity surpassess Radical Islam in acts of cruelty, insurrection, genocide, it is a very long and historically based list. Which grows longer with each passing day.

    To add perspective when it comes to Religions and their tenets.

  8. I don't think I have said anything in support of Tump. I have been ridiculing the folks who have been whining since he was elected. Don't you think conservatives wanted to cry when Obama was elected??? We shed our tears in private,. There were no demonstrations, no calls for impeachment or assassination. Suck it up buttercups.

    Trump would not have been our pick, but we like him a whole lot more than Hillary.

    Next week I may post about what we believe. There should also be a post about Islam.

  9. No calls for impeachment, assassination, no insults? Are you truly kidding me? For the past eight years there was not one public outcry from conservatives against President Obama. You are aware that all I have to do is to type in "Obama Protests" into any search engine and flood this space with shining examples, videos, gifs, memes, articles that were aimed at President Obama all crafted by conservatives. As well as my own personal accounts of the protesters who kept a vigil near the Mall where I worked complete with anti-Obama signs.

    Shed tears in private indeed!

    Plus really, ridiculing folks who have been exercising their right to speak their mind, just as you do, and then telling them that they do not have the right not only makes you a bully, but a hypocrite as well. Especially one who can only step to a woman you know you can insult and get away with it because she does not like confrontation. I wonder how the real Humphrey Bogart would consider you.

    And as for your possible posting in regards to Islam. Will it be actual history or conservative frightfest. Somehow, I expect it to be the latter.

    I will agree with you on one thing. While Trump is open evil, Hillary was cloaked evil. And I do prefer the more visible one. It is good to see your enemies and who supports them.
