Spring Day, Will be in the Pool Open Thread

Got in the pool yesterday, actually: a little chilly, but not bad. Its going above 90 out here today, so expect and increasingly tan Mark in the coming days.

Cher gets a little red-pilled over the Bernie plan to allow imprisoned felons to vote. Perhaps there is a level of stupid so bad that even the most dyed-in-the-wool liberals will wake up? I think 2020 will test this theory.

Harris was also a bit on board with Bernie’s “Let the Boston Bomber Vote” program, until, I guess, her aides and pollsters went “are you f***ing nuts!”. She’s backing down a bit from it – but, don’t believe her: the liberals really do believe jailed murderers should vote, because they’ll likely all vote Democrat. Harris is just beating a tactical retreat.

The Citizenship Question will go before the Supreme Court and rumors are the Conservative majority will back Trump – which, to me, is a no-brainer: there’s no valid reason not to have such a question on the census. It is a violation of my rights as a citizen of the United States that some States get more House representation based upon people who aren’t even supposed to be in the country. I’d also like to look into the validity of someone who holds a House seat where the number of citizen voters is significantly smaller than the average number of citizen voters per district. To me, such a person cannot hold a House seat as no proper election occurred given our one man, one vote requirement for such things.

Latinos are doing very well under Trump – by some measures, better than they’ve ever done. How will this play in 2020? Don’t know. But if Trump can crack 40% of the Latino vote, it’ll be a blowout for him.

Rep. Omar (D-West Somalia) back in 2017 essentially called the American soldiers of “Black Hawk Down” fame, terrorists. A veteran of that fight responds. You have to think about this: American blood was shed to save Omar’s life and after this and coming to America and now living a life that no Somali could ever dream of in Somalia, she’s calling the men who made it all possible terrorists. I do doubt the validity of her oath of citizenship.

RSM notes a feminist coffee shop in Australia started charging men 18% more than women…and for some bizarre reason, the place is now going out of business.

    How delicious is the irony that these are the people who are keeping track of Trump’s “lies.”

    • Amazona April 24, 2019 / 7:37 pm

      And, of course, no one in the Complicit Agenda Media has admitted to being wrong, much less apologized to the public for spreading misinformation, even after the lies have been proved to be lies.

      • Cluster April 25, 2019 / 8:27 am

        Apologized?? They still think they got it right. The Complicit Agenda Media is patting themselves on the back for the “tough” reporting over the last couple of years. They have no shame, no integrity, and most importantly there’s no accountability.

        As I type, I am being lectured by MSNBC on the gayness of Mayor Pete. They want to make sure that Christians don’t go Old Testament” on poor old Mayor Pete.

        Fake But Accurate

        This is possibly a precursor to “passive collusion”, the new concept invented by, of course, a PERSON OF COLOR.

    Has anyone else heard of The Equality Act? I had not until I read this essay.

    Forced silence, recantation, or re-education already accompany this legislative movement. The postmodern American version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution seeks to eliminate dissidents from professional livelihood in a kind of capitalist career death. The Equality Act would add national police power to efforts already underway to that end.

    • JeremiahTMM April 25, 2019 / 4:42 pm

      Retired Spook,

      Yes, I posted a a small portion of an email I got from Liberty Counsel here several weeks ago, in which it urged people to call their congressman and ask them to vote no on the Equality Act. At that time, I think it had passed the House and was on its way to the Senate. Some of the bill is made on behalf of homosexuals targeting Christians.

      This really angers me, but unfortunately it doesn’t anger enough other people to start the process of ending the democrats reign of tyranny.

      All I can say is, people need to wake up soon, or they’re gonna wake up in chains one morning.

    I love this campaign line from Joe Biden:

    ‘battle for the soul of this nation’

    Because to a Democrat the “soul of our nation” is to apologize for being alive and give everything away to anyone who asks, including the country. That’s who true Americans are according to Democrats.

      Cluster, it is evident that eight years of being the lapdog of The Messiah has rubbed off on Uncle Joe. From a phone call between him and some donors:“I get calls from people all over the world — world leaders are calling me — and they’re almost begging me to do this, to save the country, save the world,”


      Few ideas are more chilling that that of the fate of the world depending on Pervy Joe.

      But let’s deconstruct a little. First, there is the fact that “world leaders” does not automatically mean heads of state, but is just as likely, if not more so, to mean the shadow leaders, like Soros. But for the sake of argument we can pretend that he meant actual, official, leaders. For example, just WHICH :”world leaders” are calling him? Teresa May might be calling—Trump and his philosophy represent an existential threat to her and her style of governance, which is much more in line with that of Barry and the Boyz. But Teresa’s days are numbered, and it would be too late for her even if Joe were to hang on long enough to outlast the rest of the Clown Car Posse.

      Here is my read: The national leaders in Europe know that their defense rests very heavily on the shoulders of the United States, and by extension on a strong military and a leader willing to use it. When they look at Trump’s reaction to Russian incursions into Ukraine, they have to hope the same kind of reaction would happen if they were to be threatened, and they have to know that Joe Biden would not be the kind of leader to stand up for them. They also have to know that a Biden administration would revert back to the Obama slashes of military readiness.

      Joe is in a quandry if he wants anyone to think that Putin is one of those “world leaders”, not after Joe’s hysterical claims that Putin and Trump are allies. So who? Maduro? Castro? The list of world leaders who would want a President Biden can be narrowed down to which leaders and nations would benefit most by a neutered spineless United States with a dizty CEO and a Congress made up of the likes of Cortez and Omar.

      And they are “ALMOST” begging him to run. Not quite. Not really. Just kind of. And no doubt just kind of begging, too. But still, anyone who would encourage Biden to run would be someone who would benefit by a weak, impotent, politically correct bumbling United States led by a weak, impotent, politically correct, bumbling president. IOW, a President Biden.

      I also think it safe to assume that no one, around the world, would have used the term “save the world”. Are we ready for Messiah, Part 2?

        Joe has been in government living off tax payer money his entire life. He has never run a business and never signed anyone’s paycheck let alone his own – what in the hell does he think he has to offer? To anyone?

        As a tax payer I am tired of taking care of people like Joe Biden.

        Just curious—-is there anyone in the Dem clown car who has a history of successful participation in the workplace?

    So much to laugh about this morning. Democrat insanity is always good for laughs. Bernie was at a “She the People” conference yesterday and was heckled by “women of color” for not being supportive enough of their victim status. And Robert Redford is really really really concerned:

    For a change among such extremists, Redford didn’t set a deadline for when life on our planet would end. Instead, he stated that the world is “approaching an irreversible tipping point” because of the “damage mankind has caused all around us every day and everywhere.”

    And it’s not just the planet that Robert is really really concerned about:

    The actor-activist also pointed to such liberal-leaning topics as “medical care for all or none” and “refugees seeking compassion at our borders.” As a citizen, he stated, “I care deeply about all these things.”

    There was no mention of what Robert is personally doing like offering to pay for lower income peoples healthcare (after all he is a multi millionaire and can afford it), or no mention if he has lowered his personal carbon butt print by selling his cars and no longer flying to his different homes across the world.

      O c’mon Ryan, the Democrats would never set anyone up like they did Gen. Mike Flynn …. oh wait. Never mind.

      And Mark, I meant to say that I have already been in the pool and this has been the nicest, most temperate spring in AZ that I can remember. It’s been beautiful.

    We need more people asking young “socialists” to explain and defend their positions. This is part of a series of interviews in AOC’s district: emphasis mine

    Another guy believed that “with a good idea and a good reason to spend their tax money, people wouldn’t actually mind paying more taxes.” Phillips’ interviews concluded with someone saying, “I’m liberal. I don’t know exactly, like, where I stand, but I know, like, Democratic socialism is better than conservative … it’s the better option.” When Phillips asked how it was indeed better, the girl bizarrely answered “Um, when I think of it, I just think of, like, more open-minded people, people that aren’t, like, as economically conserved.”

    Last month, Phillips again tackled the idea of socialism with students on the campus of Florida International University in Miami. When interviewed, most of the students revealed they preferred socialism to capitalism. During this particular outing, Phillips used a clever illustration to show the millennials how socialism could personally impact them. He inquired of them how they’d like to “share” their GPAs and “spread the wealth” with fellow students earning lower grades.

    Unsurprisingly, the students thought the idea was a less than stellar one. One individual said, “I’m all for helping; I wouldn’t give some of my [GPA] points. … I’ve lost a lot of sleep, I don’t know if it would be fair.” Another stated, “I sacrifice a lot to get my GPA … so, no, I wouldn’t sacrifice my own things.” One student remarked, “That’s completely different. I’m studying all day for my grade.”

    Yet one student got a glimmer of reality when he said “I guess it would be kind of, like, hypocritical for me to say ‘no.’” Do ya think????

      Hilarious but also very sad. Our young kids have so much garbage in their heads they can not think straight. Common sense and logic are lost concepts.

      • Retired Spook April 25, 2019 / 1:34 pm

        Not all of them. My grandson-in-law made sergeant (E5) in the Army National Guard in 3 years, returned from a year-long deployment to Iraq last November, enrolled at Ball State university in January on the GI Bill and completes his first semester next week toward a degree in computer science. My wife’s brother’s son is a dentist in Camp Verde, AZ, just north of you. He served 5 years in the Marine Corps, including two tours to the ME as a helicopter crew chief, and also went to school on the GI Bill. Both are solid Conservatives and would lay down their lives to preserve our Constitutional Republic. Truth be told, I think there are more like them than you can imagine.
        They just don’t get any publicity because they’re too busy living their lives and minding their own business.

      • Amazona April 25, 2019 / 3:26 pm

        And it’s these young people who are the future of the nation and of conservatism—though more and more I think the two are linked.

        CPAC has attracted more and more young people every year. There are many young people who can think, who can see through the promises and platitudes of the Left. But our problem is, we give them so little to work with. They might have the intellectual ability to understand what the twinkies and snowflakes can’t, but intellectually they are on their own.

        And I contend (mounting my platform once again) that this is because when WE talk to them, we also speak in terms of Identity Politics, of ISSUES instead of the abstract unemotional structure of the two basic competing forms of government. We want them to think and analyze but then we give them issues upon which to base their decisions. But that is not far enough. It’s not about which ISSUES matter but where and how they are addressed that defines the difference between Left and Right. And I argue that when the discourse is reduced to which structure of government is better, the side arguing for a Central Authority with unlimited scope will always lose to the side arguing for limited federal powers and authority kept closer to the people.

        When enough time has been spent looking at politics through this prism, it becomes clear on its own that the current Environmental Justice movement, or whatever silly label it might bear at one time or another, is really a front to expand the scope and power of a Central Authority. And when viewed through this prism there is no longer an argument about being for what issues, because it is, instead, a matter of where those issues have to addressed—and the argument can be made with a minimum of emotion and an abundance of logic.

        We need to have more faith in our young people, and give them the weapons they need to fight the fight they will be fighting. Labels and issues are the equivalent of going into battle armed with flyswatters and Fabreze. We need to arm them with facts, history, logic and common sense. Otherwise, even an argument that is supported by the Constitution hits the wall at that point, just a few steps deeper into thought than the examples in my quote. It becomes a matter of “well, that’s just what I think”. But an approach based on the inherent strengths of one system and the inherent defects in the other, aside from the emotional content of issues, is something that makes sense and can be argued far longer than simply saying someone thinks something should be a certain way because the Constitution says so.
