Kids Today Aren’t Snowflakes – They’re Pussies!

I was thinking about all the stuff we saw/survived when we were growing up. The Cold War. Vietnam. Nixon and Watergate. JFK, MLK, and RFK. Oil embargoes and inflation. Disco. Leisure suits.

Kids today aren’t snowflakes, they’re pussies.

      As the parent of a teen cancer survivor who has spent a lot of time hanging out in the hospital with kids with cancer, I’ve never quite understood the allure of a shaved head, especially among the girls. It’s devastating for the cancer kids when their hair starts falling out. The other look that comes to mind is “concentration camp”.

      Thanks WP. I’ll be sure to tell my wife how to vote next time. And then duck.

      Never a glib thought that just maybe……MAYBE….on some issues we share viewpoints? Because we share lives? And interests? And on others we don’t. Hence “voting secretly” in a booth?

      • elliesmom says:

        Elliesdad has never changed my mind about who to vote for. There have been times when I have just kept my mouth shut. Like when we voted for governor in IL. I think there may have been a time or two when I’ve changed his mind, See primary 2016. But I don’t know for sure because the voting booth is private. I am more conservative than he is, but he gets angrier at politicians and stays angry longer. I’ll probably vote for a Democrat sooner than he will although he has been registered as a Democrat, and I never have.

    • Constance says:

      Well how do we know that Republican husbands aren’t voting like their wife tells them to vote? In Progressive households do women vote like their husbands tell them or are they voting Democrat based on their own thoughts?

    • helenk3 says:

      when she was told to sit down and shut up in 2008 so they could install backtrack, was it bill that told her to do so? She has a lot of nerve talking about any woman’s decision to vote and how that woman made her decision.

      • mothy2017 says:

        Have they/she ever considered the support she lost after 08? She changed. I was registered (I) from 2008 until Trump. I can name 20 family members who voted for her against obama who then voted for Trump. The math isn’t that difficult.v

      • r u reddy says:

        I have read that it was the Bilderberg Group which instructed her to step back and let Backtrack have the nomination. They were both summoned to the Bilderberg Group’s annual meeting being held that year near Chantilly, Virginia.

      I’m not sure I’d want a snapping turtle large enough to eat a puppy in a tank in a classroom. Remember, this is the Tide pod generation. A turtle that large could take a kid’s hand off.

    • Miranda says:

      If that actually happened, the teacher needs to be investigated for animal abuse.

      • elliesmom says:

        If the teacher had fed the turtle a fish, no one would be protesting. I had kids raise brine shrimp in one of the tanks in my classroom to feed the fish in the other ones. No one had much sympathy for the “sea monkeys”. The closer an animal gets to humans on the evolutionary tree, the more offended some people get when they’re eaten by people or other predators. People pretty much take for granted that kids are going to dissect frogs and worms in a biology class, but there’s always an uproar if the teacher chooses to have the kids dissect a cat. A fetal pig is another choice teachers often make, and that one gets mixed reviews. A shark is a good choice. People cheer that one on, but the specimens are expensive.
        Given that a puppy is a lovable pet for a large percentage of the kids, choosing a puppy was insensitive. In the real world small pets are food for large reptiles like alligators and snapping turtles. They eat birds and ducks, too. Pretty much anything is food for them. They aren’t vegan. As I’ve already said, the danger of having that large a snapping turtle in a classroom would be my main concern, but once it’s there, it needs to eat. A puppy was a poor choice, but no more cruel or abusive than tossing the turtle a fish.

        • Miranda says:

          I know it’s standard in nature, but I wouldn’t deliberately feed any animal another live animal, essentially torturing the food animal to death.

          • elliesmom says:

            I hear you. I got a lot of flak for sharing pics I took of a snake consuming a toad in my backyard. Like the snake was “evil” for eating the toad live. Non-venomous snakes eat toads and mice by swallowing them alive and whole. It’s just the way they eat. If the puppy was fed to the turtle live, the first thing the turtle did was kill it. It has an iron jaw. It didn’t eat the puppy by eating it alive. As I said, I don’t applaud the teacher using a puppy for turtle food. It was a poor choice when the turtle would have been just as happy to eat some other animal. One that doesn’t create images of a reptile eating something warm and fuzzy.

            It’s my understanding the turtle wasn’t fed the puppy as a demonstration before a class, but was done after school. The only kids who saw it were the teacher’s “fan club”. The kids who like to hang out with a teacher after school. The guy wasn’t trying to cause a sensation. I think he needs to return the turtle to the wild or surrender it to an animal sanctuary. Either of which will require permits from his local government. Maybe the parents who are upset could help him pay for the permits. He appears to be a popular teacher even if he is a bit misguided in his choice of classroom “pets”.

      Really sad news. 💔

    • Constance says:

      Very sad. I was reading about him and it said he was diagnosed with ALS at age 21 and given 2 years to live. So he lived 50+ years with the disease and has 3 children. He had been in a wheel chair since 1969. I have never heard of anyone living that long with that disease.

      • Somebody says:

        Me either, he’s always held up as an example with ALS patients. Most die within 18 months to 2 years from diagnosis. My father lived 5 years and 4 months after his ALS diagnosis, which was unusual. How quickly it takes you generally depends on which area of the body is impacted first. Once the patient moves into the bulbar phase they usually go quickly, professor Hawkins being the only example to the contrary I know of.

        Horrible disease.☹️

      Claire Foy did a much better job acting than Matt Smith did in the series.

      • elliesmom says:

        But Matt Smith has chosen a better agent, which in the business half of an actor’s or actresses’s job is equally as important as talent when it comes to a paycheck.

      • lateblum says:

        I don’t know who was the better actor. I know I went from not caring about Philip, to actually not liking him. And I went from liking Elizabeth, to admiring her – very much. So maybe it’s a tie.
        I hope Claire Foy gets a better agent for the remaining episodes/seasons. She deserves all the accolades (and salary) she can get. I have only a half episode left to watch of this wonderful series. I don’t want it to end.

    So Lamb is giving a victory speech.
    He’s so full of 💩 I can smell the stench over the Internet.
    Oh, yea, Dem’s are now for Americans. Well maybe a few million or so Illegal’s me thinks, but he won’t say that tonight.
    A leopard can never change its spots. Read DemoRats.

  25. Myiq2xu™ says:

  26. Constance says:

    The thing is we all used to vote reliably Democrat and we haven’t changed. The Democrat party changed into intolerant Leftists who now find us all deplorable and women too spineless to determine their own vote. How long before they try to take women’s votes away? Lamb sounds like an old fashioned American Democrat and that is why he is getting votes. I agree that about 24 hours after he wins his inner intolerant Leftist will emerge and line up behind Nancy but apparently people in Pennsylvania are too stupid to see this coming. Still it will be evident by next November and so perhaps it’s good that people nationwide can watch this happen now and then vote accordingly next November.

    15 Hidden Details On Grace Kelly’s Wedding Dress You Didn’t Know About

    Soon-to-be royal Meghan Markle has enthralled the world with her fairytale-like evolution from Hollywood celebrity to prominent royal figure. Markle, however, isn’t the first A-lister to abandon the limelight to follow the path to royalty. The ethereal Grace Kelly retired her Hollywood acting career to become the Princess of Monaco back in 1956 and her wedding to Prince Rainier III was undeniably one of the most iconic of all time.

  40. Anthony says:

    Wednesday morning quarterbacking: the votes aren’t counted but Lamb the Sham is already bleating victory. I suspect that will most likely be the case but I hope like hell Saccone pulls it off.

    The Democrats are also obediently bleating about the “ blue wave!” that’s going to give them control of Congress, and after the beating they took, it’s good politics to do that. However, what they will NOT say out loud is The Democrat candidate won ONLY because he denounced the ideology of the entire party. Must suck to be them.

    • mothy2017 says:

      Hoping lamb would like more than a brief stint and he represents the people that elected him and not the DNC. He won’t even live in the newly drawn district. Also hope the RNC gets the wake up call. They ran a terrible campaign. Ads were awful.

  41. DeniseVB says:

    It’s a good day to leave the TCM on for background noise since the school walkouts are getting wall-to-wall coverage. I thought it was to commemorate the school victims for 17 minutes, but one Maryland high school is walking to the White House? This is crazy Dem politics covered by a gleeful liberal media. Kids will always be happy to get out of school for whatever reason.

    • elliesmom says:

      The kids here have a snow day. Maybe Mother Nature was sending them a message.

      • elliesmom says:

        When I was a high school student myself, the kids wanted to stage a protest to end the dress code. Knowing getting rid of the dress code wasn’t going to happen in 1968, I went to the oldest teacher, who was the most revered or hated depending on what kind of student you were, and asked for an audience with her. I explained to her the real issue was how hot it was for the boys to wear jackets or sweaters and ties in the warmer months, and the new mini-skirt fashions were making it hard for girls to meet the modesty standards unless they could sew. A relaxation of the tie standard and pants for the girls would make us better able to concentrate on our studies. She petitioned the school committee to change the rules, and they agreed unanimously. Rather than being celebrated as a good negotiator, I was skewered for spoiling the protest, although the kids got everything they wanted. Most of the kids just wanted to cause some trouble then, and today isn’t any different.

    • Constance says:

      As I left for work at 10:30- there were a batch of adolescent punks lurking with back packs, no coats of course, at the end of my street. They seemed to be smoking. Then there were huddled groups of kids hanging around on the streets as I drove down 23Ave. I don’t sense any political energy they just want to hang and act self righteous.

    Random thought
    Parkland is part of backtrack’s legacy. His part in making schools punishing policies part of the funding has let many kids who need counseling and help not get it.
    If I were the mother of a minority child I would be furious. How dare he make it so that my kid does not have to face the consequences and take the responsibility for their actions. What a lousy lesson to teach a kid. What kind of an adult will they be due to this?
    just my opinion

      In Sweden, the glass is advertised as grenade proof

      “Grenade attacks have also been a major concern for Swedish authorities in the last several years as hand grenades have become cheaper and more common. According to a former member of an organised crime group, a single hand grenade can cost as little as 1,000 Swedish Krona (£91/$123).”

    Mike Pompeo: ‘Jesus Christ our savior is truly the only solution for our world’

    It turns out, the man tapped to replace Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has some strong opinions about Christianity, as Michael Stone wrote in Patheos a couple years ago:

    Pompeo goes so far as to endorse the notion of a “Holy War” between Christians and Muslims.

    We should be doing this!!!! We need good farmers. Bring them here, get them started on some land!

    White South African farmers “deserve special attention” from Australia due to the “horrific circumstances” of land seizures and violence, Peter Dutton has said.

    The home affairs minister told the Daily Telegraph on Wednesday his department was examining a range of methods to fast-track their path to Australia on humanitarian or other visa programs.

    South Africa’s new president, Cyril Ramaphosa, is pursuing legal changes to allow appropriation of farm lands without compensation for redistribution to black South Africans.

    The policy has led to reports, including in the Australian media, that white farmers are being murdered at a rate of more than one per week.

    “If you look at the footage and read the stories, you hear the accounts, it’s a horrific circumstance they face,” Dutton said.

    The home affairs minister noted Australia has refugee, humanitarian and other visa programs which have the “potential to help some of these people”. He said he had asked his department to look at the options “because from what I have seen they do do need help from a civilised country like ours”.

    “The people we’re talking about want to work hard, they want to contribute to a country like Australia,” Dutton said.

    “We want people who want to come here, abide by our laws, integrate into our society, work hard, not lead a life on welfare. And I think these people deserve special attention and we’re certainly applying that special attention now.”

    Dutton suggested options included the in-country persecution visa category, and to bring them to Australia on humanitarian visas via referrals from others in Australia.

    He said the home affairs department was looking at ways to help “some of these horrific cases” and suggested an announcement could be made shortly.

    Asked if this could be achieved with the South African government’s cooperation, Dutton replied Australia “can work with governments all around the world”.

    Trump’s First Female Chief Will Splinter CIA into a Thousand Pieces and Scatter it Into the Wind

    With Rex Tillerson now out at as the Secretary of State for the Trump Administration – Central Intelligence Agency Chief Mike Pompeo is heading over to replace him – but President Trump’s first ever female CIA choice of Gina Haspel – is surely a fourth dimensional chess play that will bring the corruption and infiltration of Marxism within the intelligence agency to its knees.
