NBC Thinks a Married, 23 Year Old Christian is Living an Alternative Lifestyle

Trouble is, they are right:

Just read this and weep for our future.

“David Wise is at the top of his sport. He’s always smiling among his friends and competitors, however, he’s not like the rest of the field. He is mature.

Not to say the rest of the freestyle skiers of halfpipe are not mature, but Wise is mature far beyond his years. At only twenty-three years old, he has a wife, Alexander, who was waiting patiently in the crowd, and together they have a two-year-old daughter waiting for them to return to their home in Reno, Nevada.

At such a young age, Wise has the lifestyle of an adult.”

Well, at 23, he is an adult. He has been an adult for five years. He is old enough to have graduated from college, gotten married, started a family, become a world class skier — all kinds of adult things. Because he is an adult. He also sounds like a great guy….

NBC has memory-holed the report, but I think they unintentionally hit a bit of truth:  being 23 years old and living like what used to be a normal adult life is bizarre.  He’s supposed to be living in his mother’s basement until he’s 26, wearing onesie pajamas and talking up ObamaCare at the dinner table.  During this time he’s also supposed to get a few, odd piercings and tattoos and then run through a series of relationships (gay, straight, mixed, what have you) before getting married (same sex or straight), divorced and then going on disability at 36 in preparation for following his passion on the taxpayer’s dime, now freed from “job lock”.   That he’s just a man and taking a man’s part in the world is freakish.  And a sad commentary on just how degraded we are.

    You have been subsidizing the efforts of radical left-wing community organizers for years, and you probably didn’t even know it.

    Fifty years ago as Barack Hussein Obama inhaled the values of his communist parents, grandparents, and mentors, their comrades were drafting plans to destroy American civil society.

    Armed with your parents’ and grandparents’ tax dollars, America-hating extremists Richard Cloward, Frances Fox Piven, and Saul Alinsky were hard at work in the 1960s laying the foundation to wreak havoc on America and its people in an effort to force revolutionary change.

    Progressive agitators’ quest to obliterate economic freedom was aided by the “War on Poverty,” a metaphorical military undertaking against an ineradicable foe. Given its chance of success, it may as well have been the War on Rainbows.

    “And a sad commentary on just how degraded we are“.

    Led by the MSM, donks, and certain RINOS.
    The question is are we over as a nation? or will our republic as it was founded gone? At this point we are 90% gone…..and sinking fast.

        You guys are crazy. The US is nothing like the Ukraine and there won’t be mass rioting etc. First according to Neo the moochers are too lazy to riot, second according to Babcock this fascist regime would never let control slip away so easily.

      • Amazona February 20, 2014 / 5:40 pm

        Dolf, while I don’t agree with Jeremiah or neo on this, I also don’t agree with you when you say “….this fascist regime would never let control slip away so easily…”

        Surely you understand that riots here would play into the hands of the RRL, particularly if they are race riots or even just related to any of the RRL talking points, like “income inequality”. I’m not quite sure what point you are trying to make here. It really just looks like you are taking a swing at whoever has posted.

        And I think it stopped being THE Ukraine a while back………….

      • bardolf2 February 20, 2014 / 8:01 pm


        The plural of anecdote is not data. The problem as always is that there is no objective standard or metric by which one can evaluate any claims of things going to Hell as mentioned here on B4V.

        The unemployment rate isn’t a good metric (it’s declining) , the amount of energy produced domestically isn’t a good metric (it’s increasing) , the number of people in prison isn’t a good metric (it’s decreasing) , the life expectancy of the average American not a good metric (it’s increasing), divorce rate not a good metric (it’s decreasing), rate of teen pregnancy isn’t a good metric (it’s decreasing), violent crime rate isn’t a good metric (it’s decreasing), the changes in US manufacturing not a good metric (it’s increasing), number of foreign wars not a good metric, Detroit becoming a better place to live …

        I think the patriot act is intrusive, that regulations are limiting middle class growth, that the government spends way too much money … but I blame my neighbors for lots of these things. The US has militarized the police because people want the local news to show a SWAT team in action, the US is becoming a giant nanny-state because people don’t want their neighbors smoking pot, people don’t want standards in education so their lazy nieces/nephews can

        The United States will survive Obama without breaking a sweat. Mark Noonan’s make/mine/build is ever so slowly picking up steam and allowing more and more people to become independent of too big to fail institutions.

      • M. Noonan February 21, 2014 / 2:00 am

        You are right that the unemployment rate is not a good metric – but that is because it has been manipulated to give the impression that it is declining. The Census Bureau just revealed that for every 1 person working in the United States, there are 1.07 people on means-tested government benefits (and this does NOT include Social Security, etc). If the unemployment rate was down, this simply would not be. The real rate is probably in excess of 10.5%.

        The amount of energy being produced is the only thing keeping Obama’s economy afloat – in spite of rigorous efforts on the part of Obama to wreck the industry, the new technologies being used on private land are giving us a bit of a bonanza in energy…and if Obama would just allow more of it, we’d be energy independent in a few, short years.

        People not being put in prison is a good thing, but the bad news is that there are so many laws that all of us are in routine violation of them and so whenever the government wants to put one of us away, it can do so.

        Life expectancy is fine, if you’ve got a good life (see above about the ratio of makers to takers).

        Divorce is probably declining because people are not marrying, and birth rates are in rapid decline. So, not so good.

        What I blame for all of this is people failing to think things all the way through.

      • Amazona February 20, 2014 / 10:48 pm

        No offense meant, dolf, but I didn’t understand a thing you said.

        Oh, I understood each individual segment but as to how they might fit together? Nope.

        What “anecdote”? Why do you include me when you talk about the nation going to Hell? I’m the optimist of the blog.

      • neocon01 February 21, 2014 / 8:25 am

        ” First according to Neo the moochers are too lazy to riot,
        where did I EVER say that?
        did you live through the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s 90’s, 2000’s? where almost EVERY American city was looted, burned, destroyed? some twice??
        Who do you think it was who did that??
        Oh right, those damn hard working tax paying, canadians…yup, they do it every time.

    America isn’t even remotely like Ukraine… and Ukraine isn’t even remotely like China, or Iran, or even Chicago (circa 1968) or anyplace else on the planet that has had citizens brutally beaten by repressive & lawless regimes that declare political opponents as “enemies”. . .

    But, there you are!

        GOP Leaders Won’t Escape Conservative Voters’ Wrath
        By J. Robert Smith

        Oh, lookie, Speaker John Boehner and his dimwits have decided that riling up the party’s base over immigration reform isn’t so smart after all, not in an election year. Instead, the speaker and his dwarves will seek to “calm” a divided party, or so reported the Washington Post on Monday. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is all-in for the soothing music and back rubs approach for aggravated Tea Party patriots and grassroots conservatives.

        But it won’t work. Boehner’s little stunt –

        I don’t really know what ‘dolf is on about. MFN for China? He makes the typical emotional entreaty that riots=bad actor=no soup for you! In this way international trade is a favor granted by the United States for political compliance rather than allowing consumers to seek out what they want where they find it.

        Free Trade means free trade ‘dolf. Try reading Thomas Sowell instead of Thomas the Engine.

        As usual, with all his sophistry and equivocal forensics no one really knows what position he takes on a subject other than Iffen The Count is fer it-I’m agin it!”

        But, let’ wait for ‘dolf to convict me of a crime before we decide my guilt.

        @ least neo is clear in his objections; ‘dolf’s diatribes are so often cloaked in ulterior verbosity there is no understanding of meaning possible.

        Sure, all the words make sense, just not in that order.

        Back on subject; to the cloistered opinion-mongers at NBC, safely ensconced in their progressive cocoon the idea of an adult lifestyle is otherworldly.

        After all, according a a famous liberal author“I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon. Where they are I don’t know. They’re outside my ken. But sometimes when I’m in a theater I can feel them.”

    OT, but certainly a Top Ten entry from the YCMTSU file.

    President Obama’s forthcoming budget request will seek tens of billions of dollars in fresh spending for domestic priorities while abandoning a compromise proposal to tame the national debt in part by trimming Social Security benefits.

    With the 2015 budget request, Obama will call for an end to the era of austerity that has dogged much of his presidency and to his efforts to find common ground with Republicans. Instead, the president will focus on pumping new cash into job training, early-childhood education and other programs aimed at bolstering the middle class, providing Democrats with a policy blueprint heading into the midterm elections.

    “Era of austerity”? You gotta be sh*tting me. “Efforts to find common ground with Republicans”? That’s rich.

    • Amazona February 22, 2014 / 10:40 am

      I wonder where we can find the February 2014 copy of the New Dem Dictionary—you know, where “austerity” is defined as a reckless rampage of irresponsible spending, blatant transfers of vast wealth to cronies, and decadent extravagance by the occupants of the White House.

      Those of us who are, as one of the more shrill forker personas once screeched, TRAPPED IN HISTORY !!!!!! know that the Communists regularly rewrote history books, to make the past fit in with the present and their intended future. This is why we knew what it meant when our children’s history books were rewritten to make Columbus a vicious genocidal monster, the attack on Pearl Harbor a desperate act of self-defense against an imperialist United States, the transparently Leftist ideology of fascism as “right-wing”, etc. This is why we can see through the semantic gamesmanship of the Left’s constant renaming of its ideology to come up with names that will resonate with the ignorant, such as the hijacking of feel-good words like “liberal” and “progressive” to describe what are profoundly illiberal and regressive movements.

      The claim that “austerity” has “dogged much of his presidency”—–again, note the passive voice, the whine that Obama has had this forced upon him—–was ridiculous enough, but topping it off with a defiant snarl that he is also going to stop trying to find “common ground with Republicans” goes way beyond mere chutzpah, into out-and-out insanity.

      The sad thing is, many of his sycophants will believe this. Because to them, reality IS the word.

      • Retired Spook February 22, 2014 / 11:51 am

        Sadly, we get language like this from, what many assume to be a mainstream media outlet — The Washington Post. And this was not on the opinion page. This was reported as news — just not news that’s tethered to reality in any way. Woodward and Bernstein must be ashamed of their former employer. But, as you say, many of his sycophants will believe it.

      • Retired Spook February 22, 2014 / 12:29 pm

        What are those issues? The economy. National defense. Tax reform. Education. Health care.

        So much for the promise that Medicare Advantage plans wouldn’t be affected by ObamaCare.

        If that doesn’t get a few million lazy senior citizens off their butts to vote this November, then I don’t know what will.

      • neocon01 February 22, 2014 / 1:05 pm

        This is the conclusion of a very long and contentious relationship between you and this blog. You purposely post things that you are told are not allowed by blog rules and when you are told of this you argue with moderation. You have been banned in the past and under this name you have been given many chances to post according to blog standards. When you come back you go along with blog standards for a short period and then you start doing the same things that got you temporarily kicked off. You were told last time that if you started in on this kind of behavior again you would be permanently removed. When you are told that certain behaviors will get you permanently removed from the blog this does not mean that each post will evaluated. It means that all will be removed. That is what permanent means. We have tried leaving some posts and removing others and all you do is complain and argue when one is removed. When others have broken the rules they have been cut off but you have been given many chances. You have enjoyed testing moderation to see what you could get away with and you always blame someone else when you go too far. You were told what would happen if you tested again. Please do not act surprised or play victim. //Moderator

      • neocon01 February 23, 2014 / 3:48 pm

        There is only one person responsible for you losing the privilege of posting here and that is you. You were given many more chances than other posters who were disruptive to the blog. You have had posts deleted, you have had warnings given, you have been removed for different lengths of time, and the last time this happened you were told that it would be the last time. You and only you made the decision to challenge blog standards. You seem to think someone else is to blame for your removal from the blog but this is not the case. Moderators routinely put their comments in boldface. This is not screaming at you and you have not been singled out for this. You want confirmation about your guess about the identity of one of the moderators. This is not going to happen. You are speculating but the blog will not allow posting of personal information about posters or moderators. This rule was enforced when people posted speculation about your identity and your sexual preferences and it applies to all. The decision to stop letting you post on the blog has been discussed between moderators more than once and once it was finally made it applied to everything you might try to post. It is not connected to content but to the poster. Now you are going farther and breaking even more blog rules, in attacking another poster. This was not allowed when people posted negative things about you and it is not allowed now. All this has done is prove that the decision to remove you from the blog was the right one. // Moderator
