      Twitchy is fun this morning.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Loved the guy who highlighted all her lies in the apology and backed them up with her original tweets. And why Little Miss Big Shot calls it her private account when it’s verified ? Who does she think she is, Cher? LOL.

          Poor thing never had a chance. What kind of person spells a name Alix. Ooooh hw avent garde. Piss ants.

          • Lulu says:

            If she really wants to be outre it should be Alyx. Get it? No vowels. My maiden surname has no vowels but its’ Welsh who were by the way discriminated against in spelling.

      • Lulu says:

        Having a lawyer stick something in your face and telling you “Type it out on Twitter or you are fired you shithead” isn’t either. She left out the fake dick pizza ad with the pizza parlor’s real name of business and photo of the owner apology which is the one they need to find a $ettlement total from the station and CBS. She isn’t finished groveling. Remember this fool has a master’s in multimedia journalism.

    Clinton Labor Secretary says Americans Joining ISIS is No Big Deal

  3. DeniseVB says:

    I heard about this on Rush too. Was just going to post the Time article, but their website made me stabby. So I’ll use the Chicks’. We should vote for Hillary because she’s been through menopause? LOLOLOLOL. Guess Hills left that word off the media banned list 😉

    • elliesmom says:

      When Hillary was running in 2008 and all of the sexist comments were made about women getting bitchy “periodically”, I suggested it had probably been awhile since Hillary had had a period. But the Obama pajama guys didn’t have a clue.

  4. mothy67 says:

    This one is really out of hand. The video is quite moving. Spoiled little children going after a 70 year old woman. PUKES.

    • elliesmom says:

      The articles about her all say the guy getting married was someone she considered a friend. With friends like that. . . .

      • mothy67 says:

        It’s all me me me me me. My feelings. I had a friend that insisted on taking his boyfriend to a funeral of a relative. It became about him. No regard to the loss others were grieving.
        What stuck out for me with Baronelle was that she expressed that it was her art. More thab just a business. How do the “creative” progs justify that.

        • elliesmom says:

          As I’ve said, I have a married Lesbian couple as close friends. One of their mothers died in Texas. When the church bulletin published her mom’s obituary, they listed all of her sibling’s spouses, but not hers. She went on a rant against the church. But when I said, that through my own experiences with losing my parents, the church asks a member of the family to provide the obituary, and they just print what you give them. When she asked, she discovered it was her own sister who had left the Lesbian spouse out of the obituary. The church was unaware they were married. I love having these two ladies for friends, but one of them sometimes finds it hard to just be a person.

          • mothy67 says:

            I wonder about the backlash. I am from a steel town and while things have changed since Soap was taken off the air its still not West Hollywood or the Village. This constant barrage against white straight Christians will carry with it a reaction. Sadly it’ll probably be the poor kid who feels the heat. Won’t happen in libera enclaves. You can only push people so far.

            Sad too em ❤

  5. DeniseVB says:

    Oh my. If this is the same Alix Bryan, she used GoFundMe to raise money for a birthday dinner. Though she did write about it … on her blog, you know, journalism. How many gay, journo Alix Bryans live in Richmond?

    This cartoon sums up my feewings about some of the people in this country. Will be taking a break from current reality to peaceful and restful biking on the trail before the apocalypse strikes again.
    Have a restorative day and Easter

    • mothy67 says:

      Why I think the gay cake/pizza/flower/ services are an important issue.

    • DeniseVB says:

      That was a good read, thanks ! Vile Progs are bullies, ignore them and they’ll go away 😉

      • mothy67 says:

        But they are not going away they are causing actual harm to businesses that do not tow the line. Wonder if they have ever applied this pressure to African American or hispanic owned businesses. I haven’t heard of any. Both groups have been historically cosidered anti-gay. Remember how obama down played gay rights in SC.

    • elliesmom says:

      Buried in the comments was a gem. To turn the argument against catering gay pizza party weddings into a liberal instead of a conservative argument, the pizza store owner, if the law requires her to do the catering, should apply for conscientious objector status.

  7. DeniseVB says:

    So PolitiFact went to Kohl’s to fact check Scott Walker’s claim he bought a sweater for a dollar on the sale rack.

    Claim: True 😀

    • Lulu says:

      Anyone who shops sales and coupons could have told the little snots this. All Poltifact did was make themselves look like little lazy entitled elitists. I’m glad Walker doesn’t waste his PUBLIC salary.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I never doubted his story since my husband love’s Kohls and Kohls Kash, so I know it’s possible for them to pay you to buy a sweater 🙂

    • DandyTIger says:

      Wow, talk about elitist 1%’ers. They didn’t have a single person in the office that could tell them immediately what clearance racks are like, and what prices can be? Says a lot.

      • 49erDweet says:

        The self proclaimed “smartest people in the room”, the left, could not survive on their own if a natural disaster wiped out our national infrastructure for six weeks. Might be the best thing that could happen to this country.

    I baked my own birthday cake this morning. I left it cooling and when I walked back into the kitchen my husband (who has been doing yard work most of the week) was standing there in dirty clothes eating a big hunk of it. The reason he thought it was not a birthday cake is because it has no icing!

  9. HELENK3 says:

    This AM I saw an eclipse of the moon and a sunrise over the lake by my apt. it was awesome

    • Somebody says:

      I’m usually up every morning before sunrise, but not this morning wouldn’t you know it. I slept in for the first time in I don’t know when on the one morning I was looking forward to being up early.

      • Lulu says:

        I was up. Went outside. And got rained on. The only place in the whole darned state that got rain. During an eclipse. When the eclipse was over the rains stopped and it cleared off. Every time there is any kind of astrological event it rains.

  10. DandyTIger says:

    Great article on multiculturalism is racism:

    This is the point at which I broke out my broom and flew in circles around their office, pointing out their position was something Hitler would have been proud to embrace. What they are claiming in fact is that there is some ur-mythical-quality to races (and races in this case are defined in the European sense, like my dad blathering on about the “Portuguese race”) which imbues them with their own language and culture. If wanting to change that is racist, and if some of these “races” are better at life than others (understood in the whole system of Marxist reward and punishment) then what will prevent them from in the future deciding to eugenically improve the breed by eliminating the less competent? Or just, as they’re doing now, handicapping them by never teaching them the lingua franca of the age and the technological culture needed to survive?

    I didn’t convince anyone, of course, because this is a “religious” belief. I.e. if they thought rationally about it, they’d know that culture isn’t race, because we don’t all speak/dress/eat as they did in Ur of the Chaldees or on that distant day when we lounged about on tree tops eating insects, rodents and berries. But they can’t think about it because in their own blinkered minds, that would make them “racist.”

    • Lulu says:

      The elites need peons or lessers. One way to keep a ready supply is to make sure they stay peons by ignorance, non-integration, and encouraging behavior that keeps groups that way. Race, culture, geography are used to identify groups that are to be treated this way. Whites, Latino’s, Asian’s, blacks, French Canadians, Native Americans have all been encouraged to stay poor and backward via the framework developed by elites to keep them forever beggared.

    Wow. Hillary sure does have expensive taste. This neighborhood cost more to rent than most of Manhattan.

    Hillary picks Brooklyn as headquarters for expected campaign

    • DeniseVB says:

      Love “if she wanted hipster cool street cred” she would have picked the Bushwick neighborhood. That’s where my daughter lives.

      Brooklyn Heights has a very rich and interesting history including The Cosby Show and the movie “Moonstruck” were set there. Oh, and I was born there (the old Navy Yard ).

      • Myiq2xu says:

        I seriously doubt that Hill will spend much time at her campaign office. That place is for the grunts.

      • leslie says:

        I’ve been thinking of you this afternoon. I was listening to Les Mis while I cooked/baked. When they began “Drink With Me”, I just had to sit it out.
        I’m off now. I’m hosting a retirement “going away” party for a good friend who retired Tuesday. She moves to Asheville NC in another week… 😦
        Ah well, a good place to visit after June.

    More issues than TV Guide:

    I read Atrios’ puzzlement over at Eschaton yesterday about why religious people care so much about preventing gay people from loving one another. I’m not sure I can adequately answer his questions but I will give it a try. Some people are completely unhinged by the idea that two men are having sex with one another. They can spend hours haranguing you about all the various forms of gay sex. They know more about gay sex that you do. If you’re straight, you may never even think about these things for more than a minute or two but the people affected by Gay Sex Derangement Syndrome think about it quite a lot. And not because they are secretly gay.

    Part of this may be due to the religious narcissism I’ve alluded to before. It is my unprofessional opinion that authoritarian religious churches and belief systems attract people with a tendency towards narcissistic personality disorder (NPD). We can go over what causes NPD at another time but I’ve done enough reading on the subject to make me want to do real research into the subject and study psychology. But I digress.

    Basically, the theory is that people with NPD have had trauma early in their lives and they were too young to develop adequate coping skills. Their parents may not have recognized that they needed psychological assistance to help them deal with this early trauma. So these affected individuals have personalities that do not mature in some respects. They may have low self esteem, remain childlike in some aspects of their lives and demand attention from others. They are deeply insecure people. They are very envious of others.

    Religion is like a life saver to these people. We’re not talking about average religious people who go to church in times of crisis and like to belong to the community of worshippers. No, we’re talking about people who are attracted to certain authoritarian religions because the rules and personal sacrifices give them status in the eyes of others. They go to churches that make the most demands on them because they stand out as being more holy, dedicated, superior.

    That feeds their narcissism because others will look up to them, defer to them, consider them more moral people. These people go on and on about how they are “Christian”. If you want to see a younger version of this, check out this video of young Ben Seewald talking about faith and salvation with his sister-in-law Jinger Duggar. It’s a bit much. How much sinning can you do at 14 when you’re never allowed out of site from one of your same sex siblings and everything you do is videotaped for a nationwide audience? But never mind, the Duggar and Seewald kids have been thoroughly indoctrinated by their parents and there are few couples out there who are bigger religious narcissists than Jim-Bob and Michelle Duggar. They feed off their kids and there are no boundaries between parents and kids. This is also a classic characteristic of people with NPD. Family members are not allowed to have thoughts, feelings or opinions of their own. They must be controlled by the NPD parents.

    Now, what happens when you dedicate a cable channel to fluffing people with NPD? We could be talking about the 700 Club or the Van Impe’s but they’re mostly religious channels. It’s quite a different thing when a news channel gets involved because news people have authority. History is replete with examples of propaganda and mob violence lowering the bounds of what is acceptable. Think of the French Revolution and fascist Europe. Little by little, propagandists were able to wear away the mental walls we put up between what we know is good and what we really want to do. Places like Fox News give permission to tear down those walls. It calls them politically correct. It flatters the religious authoritarian. It encourages them to intrude on people’s boundaries and tells them that those people who are suffering deserve it because they aren’t godly.

    Now, throw in a soupçon of disgust. I think I have a previous blog post on it. Disgust is very powerful in propaganda. You can bet that Fox and their affiliates milk the disgust angle for all it’s worth. It’s both tittilating and revolting. That is why your 76 year old aunt may know all the details about fisting even if you never gave it a second thought. People have a visceral reaction to disgusting things. And a lot of women who came of age before birth control were conditioned to respond with disgust to sexual behavior. It probably didn’t help that some of them joined religions that TOTALLY FREEEEEEAAAK OUT over pre-marital sex. We are talking extreme over reactions. There is nothing normal about this. It is a pathological reaction to non-marital sex of any kind. As I said before, I think societal conditioning and especially a ton of guilt conditioning has something to do with this.

    Nevertheless, we’re talking about regular human beings here. They might be conditioned to overreact but they still have hormones. Just because society may have come down like a hammer on them, doesn’t mean they don’t get what it’s all about. But why should other people be allowed to enjoy what they never were allowed to enjoy? Why should they have donned a life long hair shirt while two gay guys do what they’re going to do with all their orifices (ewwww, disgusting)? If they can get away with it, what was the point of all this self-sacrifice? Doesn’t it diminish their own status if society starts to find gay behavior acceptable?

    The last part of this overly long explanation is that people suffering from NPD do not experience empathy for other people. You might say that religious authoritarianism encouraged their NPD but it’s a chicken-egg conundrum. Why would anyone voluntarily subject their families to these harsh, unforgiving, joyless religions, intrude on their personal boundaries and toss them out of their lives at the first sign of independent thought? This happens to many children in fundamentalist Christian families. Dissent is not allowed- at all. You could get thrown out of your house, cut off from your family and torn from the community you’ve known all your lives. You can bet the Duggar kids know this.

    Lack of empathy is necessary to behave this way towards people. It means that the NPD affected individual does not have the capacity to look at another person and see that person as a unique individual with feelings that are as strong and personal as oneself’s. Gay people, poor people, other people, children and spouses, well, they’re not really people to the NPD sufferer. They aren’t perceived as having true emotions, or love. They’re not allowed to be sad. Jeez, never say you’re upset about something to a person with NPD. You have no right to your feelings or personal needs. They don’t recognize that humanity in you. Only they are entitled to feelings. You are not.

    If you don’t have empathy, it’s easier to be mean, cruel, unsympathetic and still sleep at night. I suppose this can vary throughout a NPD sufferer’s life but from what I have read, NPD sufferers tend to get worse as they age. In a way, this is understandable, especially if they are the religious NPD kind. It is likely that throughout their lifetime of religious zealotry, no one has adequately challenged them. That’s because in this society, we revere the religious devotee. We don’t see them as people who potentially have NPD. We simply see them as moral and godly. It is impolite to challenge them. It’s OK to say they’re nutz behind their backs but normal people who have empathy do not do this to other people’s faces. It might hurt their feelings. The religious NPD person counts on you to have respect for their feelings even as they have no intention of respecting yours. If you never challenge them, they get the idea that this religious gig is working for them. That makes it easier for them to control others, pass judgement and crap all over your life. They’ve been conditioned to behave intrusively.

    The solution is to challenge the religious NPD sufferer. I’m not talking about the normal religious person who goes to church on Sunday and tells you about all the fun they had there. I’m referring to the person who conflates religion with their privilege to be part of the moral majority to tell you how to live. We are talking about the people who derive status from their judgmentalism.

    We are now at a cross roads of sorts. If our evolving society wants to be inclusive and non-judgemental towards people whose lifestyles are none of our business, we have to become unpleasant towards people who have used religion as a screen behind which they hide their personality disorder. Those NPD sufferers have a very powerful media microphone right now and they are being used unwittingly by some very wealthy and well connected individuals who have a very specific agenda. The weird thing is that even knowing that they are tools of rich, powerful people might not be the turn off you would think it is. So, persistence is key here.

    (If you DO successfully challenge, expect to be subjected to narcissistic rage. That’s a whole other blog post. It’s not like the kind of rage people experience rarely because they’re tired or frustrated with an ongoing situation with uncooperative people. No, this is something completely different. The mask comes off and you can see the real person hiding behind it. Their status and image has been threatened snd they want revenge. But once the mask comes off, you can’t be fooled again. You will see what all that religion has been hiding and it is not. pretty. Needless to say, it is not religious or holy either.)

    Also, to challenge them, you simply need to reassert your boundaries. Their goal is to get you to lower your boundaries and allow them to control the conversation. They will rely on your conditioning to be polite to let them get away with it. Just don’t let them get away with it. If someone is intruding on your boundaries, THEY are the ones being rude. Assert your opinion until they either back down or go away. You have a right to believe that is not right to treat people badly, their families and loved ones unequally, just because some religious people find what they do behind closed doors icky. You have a right to demand that all public places and businesses treat everyone with courtesy, dignity and equality. You have the right to tell people that they’re being mean and their behavior is bullying and they need to stop or you’ll have nothing more to do with them. Deprive them of their status.

    As Seth Andrews said last week, coexistence is not possible. Because if you back down in the name of coexistence and comity, they’re going to be the only ones speaking out about whatever the hell they want. Challenging the religious narcissist is not going to be easy or pleasant but it is vitally important because they are not going to stop with gay people.

    Finally, people with NPD do not change. They aren’t going to have an epiphany and realize they have being bigoted jerks all their lives and suddenly become enlightened human beings. If they do, it’s because they see some advantage to it. They won’t change because NPD is a personality disorder. It is the way they see the world. They can’t change because they are not able to step outside the world they have carefully constructed for themselves. They will go to the grave wrecking vengeance on people who stood up to them. But eventually, they will go to their grave. That’s a prospect that the religious narcissist finds extremely unappealing. I predict you’ll find more religious NPD sufferers in rapture sects of Christianity because it is the ultimate status high. You never have to die but all those ungodly types who didn’t listen to you will.

    So much for the whole resurrection concept. Happy Easter.

      • Myiq2xu says:

        What I think is funny is that for as much as she hates her family she feels obligated to visit them. I would love to hear their side of the story.

    • Lulu says:

      Why don’t gays sue their relatives who don’t want to have anything to do with their weddings? I think a lot (if not most of it) is a transfer of family rejection as a way to work out their own issues. And money. I know a couple of gay and lesbian people whose families accept them as they are and they don’t seem to give a goddamn about this stuff. It all looks and sounds like rejection and insecurity that makes them mad (which is usually ramped up fear) that they project on innocent bystanders who don’t know what the crap they are talking about. It seems like a little therapy (you can’t control other people nor should you and everyone feels rejection at times) would go a long way. Projecting stuff onto everything makes you look and sound crazy.

      • leslie says:

        Right you are, Lulu.
        (I commented before I read ^this^. You said it so well. I’ll have to finish reading comments before I say anything.)

      • Myiq2xu says:

        I have been a flaming heterosexual ever since I learned about the difference between boys and girls. Way before I could do anything about it I was crushing on girls. There was never a point in time when I thought girls were icky, but there was a period when I sometimes pretended they were because that’s what all the other boys did. But I ALWAYS liked girls.

        I must admit that my thoughts and feelings about homosexuality have evolved since I was a young man. I guess you could say I was homophobic thru ignorance and cultural upbringing.

        But as I matured I realized that hating gays for being gay was stupid. They were no threat to me. I made some gay friends. I’ve hung out and party with gay guys where I was the only straight guy. I’ve hung out and partied with lesbians too. I’ve been in gay bars.

        I didn’t catch any cooties. I was never tempted to switch teams, except maybe that time I met Esmerelda the transvestite. I have no interest in watching two men have sex, but watching two women can be stimulating (depending on what they look like) but it gets boring pretty fast unless you’re waiting your turn to participate.

        My attitude is if you think homosexuality is a sin then don’t be a homosexual. If gay people want to fall in love and get married there is no logical reason they shouldn’t be allowed to do so. Gays can be just as good (or bad) as parents as anyone else. Pedophilia has no connection to homosexuality. Most sexual predators are heteros. Gays can be insufferable assholes just like straight people.

        So I support LGBT rights and SSM, but I still support the right of people to think otherwise. I don’t see refusing to participate in a gay wedding as a civil rights violation.

        Some people really just need to get a grip.

        • Constance says:

          People have been refusing to participate in certain weddings forever. Marriage is a big commitment and when one takes place not everyone is happy about it. I have friends who have a 25 year old daughter who is going to marry a man twice her age and broke this summer. They were going to throw a big wedding but mysteriously even though they sent save the date cards in January very few people are planning to come. They are pretty confused and sad but that’s life and it’s not a civil rights violation.

    • DandyTIger says:

      That’s a lot of words without saying anything.

    • leslie says:

      Poor riverdaughter. She must be supremely unhappy to spend so much time trying to damn the people of whom she feels envious. This morning there was a tweet about those who hold religious beliefs seem to be happier and even better, kinder than those who scorn them. (Votermom?)
      Anyway, it seems to tear her apart that she is not that one at the center of attention, and that they seem to tolerate her whilst she beates them (at least in her head). Easter must really eat her up.

      (I don’t know how anyone could read that entire post… drivel, projection, fantasy, bile, ick.

    • Niles says:

      You’re a real dick.

    • swanspirit says:

      RD just took a seriously wrong turn on the psychology road. She should really open a book sometime, on the real deal. This doesn’t even approach amateur pop psychology. It is pure unadulterated bullshit, based largely on her own poorly informed conjecture, and projection.

  15. foxyladi14 says:

    Has to be, sure ain’t the truth. 🙄

  16. 1539days says:

    So, the examples for why refusing to cater a gay wedding, but not refusing gay customers go something like this.

    Let’s say two guys (The movie I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry comes to mind) are not gay, but having a gay wedding for some legal reason. Now, you could assuming they are gay, but deny them a wedding service would not be because of the customer.

    How about this one? The mom of a gay couple goes to a bakery to buy their wedding cake as a present. She is the customer, regardless of the ultimate consumer. Denying her a cake with a gay theme would not be refusing a gay person.

    Would it be easy to argue that a company was not providing gay wedding cakes because they don’t want gay people to go to their business? Sure, but it is not definitively the case. That’s why there are courts. And the Indiana law (pre-gutting) was reserved for when one of these situations escalated to a court case.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      Don’t forget, a wedding isn’t just a civil union, it’s considered a sacrament.

      What people don’t seem to grasp is this is about a conflict of rights. BOTH sides have civil rights at stake. The question is when does one set of rights take precedence over another.

      People on the Left are basically assuming that Christians have no rights that the government is obligated to respect.

      • elliesmom says:

        I think that’s the crux of the whole thing. The left believes everyone’s rights supercede a Christian’s rights. Christians don’t deserve anything. They don’t seem to care much that Christians are being slaughtered in the ME by Muslims, either. Christians are the enemy, and anything that crushes them is OK.

      • 1539days says:

        This is also about businesses having no right to refuse service. Business owners are now assumed to be lowlifes if they don’t pay some theoretical “living wage” even if paying it means they have to shut the doors. Now they are being used to enforce acceptance of official state policy, vis a vis gay marriage.

      • HELENK3 says:

        I do not think anyone objects to a a gay wedding civil ceremony. That is a state law and is considered legally binding. But forcing a church to go against their beliefs is another whole ball of wax. Has anyone even asked to have a gay wedding in a mosque? don’t think so. But it is ok to force a Christian church to go against their belief. Why?

    I have a very big problem with the gay thought police. What a bunch of limited unimaginitive tools.
    They do not reflect me in fact I pity their bankrupt souls.
    I am gay but I have always questioned the why. My choice. I do not impede others but I am going to have my own thoughts.
    I am Abby Normal. Born with a bum ticker. Holes defective valves three times normal size. Hey I was 3 it was 1970. I walked into my parents room when the wires holding my sternum together broke and burst through me skin. My chest is very 1970’s retro home design. Split level.
    I was poor. No phone we had TV it just didn’t work. We had to make up stories about what was on the telly. Out house newspaper for toilet paper bucket in the corner on cold nights.
    I went to 7 different school districts. I know how it feels to be pissed on the face and beaten by a bunch of kids yelling we know what you want f a g g o t.
    I despise Forrest Gump. Run Jenny run and then the idiot is the hero. Be stupid step in line
    Not whining. I yam what I yam but the gift of my religion saw me through some dark times. Suicide was always gnawing at the back of my tiny brain. Catholic not an option. I know best how to fight. When things are easy I fall asleep. I need to be kept on my toes. What kind of person has two jobs commutes from Philly to NYC as a full time student at Hunter.
    Sorry for the diatribe but I am just beyond annoyed at the gay progressives who assume to speak for me.
    Side note. Munchkin is happy, smart, sensitive, and she knows how to laugh at herself. Watching her get a belt or bring home a report card she is proud of makes it all worth while. Take it all again times infinity plus one to play a bit part in her life.

    Excellent read about the latest obamas deception – his need for a legacy is greater than our security / welfare.

    Another must read about the Iranian deal, how they outfox the smartest man ever to occupy the WH and Ketchup-man who suffered major injuries during his Nam service leading to his post war delusional state.

    Another good read by Kurt Schlicter
    “Which brings us to America in 2015. It’s becoming a nation where an elite that is certain of its power and its moral rightness is waging a cultural war on a despised minority. Except it’s not actually a minority – it only seems that way because it is marginalized by the coastal elitist liberals who run the mainstream media.

    Today in America, we have a liberal president refuses to recognize the majority sent to Congress as a reaction to his progressive failures, and who uses extra-Constitutional means like executive orders to stifle the voice of his opponents. We have a liberal establishment on a secular jihad against people who dare place their conscience ahead of progressive dogma. And we have two different sets of laws, one for the little people and one for liberals like Lois Lerner, Al Sharpton and Hillary Clinton, who can blatantly commit federal crimes and walk away scot free and smirking.

    Today in America, a despised minority that is really no minority is the target of an establishment that considers this minority unworthy of respect, unworthy of rights, and unworthy of having a say in the direction of this country. It’s an establishment that has one law for itself, and another for its enemies. It’s an establishment that inflicts an ever-increasing series of petty humiliations on its opponents and considers this all hilarious.

    That’s a recipe for disaster. You cannot expect to change the status quo for yourself and then expect those you victimize not to play by the new rules you have created. You cannot expect to be able to discard the rule of law in favor of the rule of force and have those you target not respond in kind.

    Liberals ask how a baker can believe that making a cake for a same sex wedding violates his conscience, but they don’t think about how the standard they are setting is that the government now gets to determine the validity of individual beliefs. Do they want us passing judgment on them?

    Liberals imagine that their president can simply take whatever actions he pleases – including ones he previously admitted were unconstitutional – and that the next Republican president won’t do the same. Except then it will be to negate their cherished policies.

    The revolt has begun, peacefully. In 2010, and again in 2014, the Silent Majority returned and sent an unmistakable message to the liberal elite. When Bill Clinton got that message in 1994, he recognized that opposition and worked with it. But under Obama, the liberal elite acts to ignore and delegitimize the opposition. 2014 was not a tantrum; it was a warning, and the liberals are betting that they can bluff and bluster their way through it.

    When you block all normal means of dissent, whether by ignoring the political will of you opponents or using the media to mock and abuse them, you build up the pressure. In 30+ years as an active conservative, I’ve never heard people so angry, so frustrated, so fed up. These emotions are supposed to be dissipated by normal political processes. But liberals are bottling them up. And they will blow. It’s only a matter of how.

    Liberals need to understand the reality that rarely penetrates their bubble. Non-liberal Americans (it’s more than just conservatives who are under the liberal establishment’s heel) are the majority of this country. They hold power in many states and regions in unprecedented majorities. And these attacks focus on what they hold dearest – their religion, their families and their freedom.

    What is the end game, liberals? Do you expect these people you despise to just take it? Do you think they’ll just shrug their shoulders and say, “Well, I guess we better comply?” Do you even know any real Americans? Do you think you’ll somehow be able to force them into obedience – for what is government power but force – after someone finally says “Enough?”

    “I’m not advocating violence – I am warning liberals that they are setting the conditions for violence.

    And that better worry them, for the coastal elites are uniquely unsuited to a world where force rules instead of law. The Serbs were, at least, a warrior people. The soft boys and girls who brought us helicopter parenting, “trigger warnings” and coffee cups with diversity slogans are not.”

    I just had an online argument with one of my life people. I don’t consider her a friend. Goes deeper than that. She is a Tisch Scool ofcthe Arts MA we have been roommates often and on for 25 years. Met our first day at Temple.
    She lives in Williamsburg and is completely lost in group think. She buys into the FOX lies Koch brothers George Clooney directed mythology.
    She is wicked smart trust me I do not waste my time on the boring let alone decades.
    Now she has gone from a very perspacacious individual to run of the mill. So bland. Typical. Knew her when we so young. Caught her attempting to meet her maker. So sad. She was supposed to go to Temple London and her mother stopped all funds. She had credit cards and tuition was paid.
    I was cold I said go live it up off yourself if you still think it sucks. We raced to the airport pathetic as I am we went to the county airport in North Philly. I said I don’t think any of these will make it across the Atlantic. Raced down Broad Street ran through the airport. She lived got drunk spentva year in Melbourne with a guy she met at a tube stop. Now she tells me she cannot be friends with a teabagger.
