TODAY’S LESSON: HOW TO OFFEND A LIBERAL

April 3, 2017

Liberals can, and will, find a way to offend themselves no matter what!  For a liberal to become upset, he or she (Ze, Hu, Mx, Ne or whatever pronoun they have chosen) simply needs to see or hear something other than what they want to see or hear…anything.  If they don’t retreat to a safe space, the fragile pastels immediately grab their ‘at the ready’ colored markers and cardboard.  They make signs, tweet their angst and take up arms in opposition to sanity.

Take for example the following billboard:

Fake news? Perhaps. But the Washington Post, USA Today, CNN, Huffington Post, Time.com and many other MSM and Internet sites carried some form of the story accompanied by pictures of protesters offended by the words of the billboard. Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites spread the word of the advertiser’s hatred for girls and women. “It’s never OK to throw rocks at girls” they said. Instead of accepting the message of the advertisement by Spicer Greene Jewelers, they took to the streets in condemnation of the company that toyed with a well-known saying.

In this case, the hell-bent-for-divisiveness coalition took a few words on display out of context and allowed the syllables to fuel their anger. The true message is pretty obvious to anyone of common intellect. It’s even within the picture. We’re not talking large granite projectiles or even dirt clods hurled at innocent children. They’re gemstones, you useless idiots. Women and girls generally like elegant and colorful adornments.

However, liberals can find anger where there is no reason for it. How can they do this? It is inherent within the doctrine they accept. <link>

They, the snowflake lemmings of the left, condemn normal minded individuals for wanting biological females to use one public restroom, locker room or shower facility and expecting that men use others. They use hate words like homophobe and bigot to describe people who choose to have gender specific privacy areas. They become hostile as they try to denounce relative normalcy in the name of civility. (It’s the inclusive and compassionate liberal way.)

However, let a one of them discover an obvious sexual pervert or known molester, (allowed by the social engineering laws they promote) within what was once their personal space. That’s the time they want the individual arrested for following their liberal directives.

Liberals are easy to offend and anger. Just be reasonable; use logic.  It will get to them every time.

ARE LIBERALS ANGRY BECAUSE THEY’RE LIBERAL?

March 27, 2017

It’s hard to tell which came first, the anger or the self immersion in a flawed doctrine. In either case, we find that people with liberal tendencies are easily angered to the point of violence. No, this is not an exclusive or definitive statement. And yes, I’m sure any liberal minded person can find anecdotal evidence showing that some conservatives also get mad. In general, however, it is the liberals who find themselves unable to verbally justify their feelings and anger themselves with the lack of such ability. They also lean toward physical expression, aka violence, when they don’t get their way. Note the demonstrations riots in Ferguson, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Charlotte and many other bastions of liberalism. Be aware of the anti-Trump rallies vs. Tea Party gatherings.

Another corollary is the less education and/or lower intellect an individual has the greater the tendency toward liberalism. Also, less education breeds a propensity toward violence to resolve conflicts. (redundancy noted) The latter subset tends to gather in cliques (sometimes called clubs) to defend themselves against the world at large. For the outsiders, the nomenclature is gangs.

Removed from the formula are people with IQs of less than 65 for whom learning ability is limited. These people tend to be the happiest because they are not involved, unaware and generally under regular, if not constant, care. This societal division needs only to have basic life necessities and some minor wants met. When thus satisfied, there is a state of euphoria. However, tantrums and rampage are also their alternatives when wants are not satisfied.

Democrats want to limit education choice to indoctrination centers public institutions where learning is directed from history to “new history” and reading assignments are restricted to works that promote liberal, Marxist and socialist ideologies. It is difficult if not impossible to instill education into the minds of despondent care-for-naughts. Thus, our public schools teach to the level of the less capable rather than asking them to work and apply innate abilities or potential to the maximum. Doing this enables those without will or drive to be “equal” to those who do want to learn. To be liked and wanted, they bend towards the warmth of the collective. The concept holds back the best of our youth while catering to or sanctioning behavior of all else.

Here is where the anger begins. Complacency in the classroom translates directly to low work ethic and to boredom. The acceptance of mediocrity begets low will and drive. Desire for betterment is a human nature and cannot be subdued. Desire without drive while expecting equality or supremacy without effort breeds anger. That anger translates into crowd or gang mentality and associated violence ensues.

The government under-educated but indoctrinated youth of today expect “a living wage” without the skills, knowledge or work ethic that is required for survival. Their upbringing by government sponsored authority figures (teachers) supposes upward mobility simply for being.

Flipping burgers, product production and assembly lines are rote performance and people are easily and economically replaced by robotics. Today’s technology leaves the lesser educated unqualified and at a significant and growing disadvantage. Having slacked their way through the education system from kindergarten to high school graduation, the ill prepared now want a free ride through the college system. They expect it, they believe they merit it FREE because of all that has been given them to that point.

Studies show that fully 1/3 of the current junior college freshmen students require remedial classes in the basics they should not have passed in high school. To carry this a step further, teachers in the New York public education system may not be required to pass a 12th grade reading test. The literacy test raised alarms because just 46 percent of Hispanic test takers and 41 percent of black test takers passed it on the first try, compared with 64 percent of white candidates. While a federal judge ruled in 2015 that the test was not discriminatory, faculty members say a test that screens out so many minorities is problematic.

When only 64% of those charged with increasing the knowledge of students, be they white European, Hispanic, Asian or Arabic can pass a test designed for high school seniors, it seems to me that we need better educated teachers.

“Having a white workforce really doesn’t match our student body anymore,” offered a Pace University professor of education. When 36% of the college educated white teachers do not have the literacy skills expected of a high school senior, but they show best of class, it is racial discrimination. So here we have a professor of education who advocates for lower standards of education for the very authorities to whom we entrust our children. The justification? Race. Race is the wild card for anything a liberal cannot defend with reason.

One has to wonder about the academic score for this “professor of education”.

So, next time you encounter an person of undue anger and hostility, please remember he or she is probably a product of limited education and or mental capacity – no matter what degree that person flaunts.

As the late Paul Harvey might say, “NOW YOU KNOW THE REST OF THE STORY”.

 

THESE ARE DEFINITELY DIFFERENT TIMES

February 20, 2017

This president has more to overcome than most. Because he is an outsider, he doesn’t understand or follow political protocol. He makes things happen rather than convening delegations to talk about what needs to be done then waiting for something to begin happening.

Mistakes? Yes. That’s not at all uncommon when advancing new programs or ideas. Mistakes can be and are corrected. Calling them “unintended consequences”, dismissing them and moving forward is wrong on every level. The ACA is a prime example. It was wrong from the beginning. It was costly and offered less care than insurance companies allowed prior. Doing nothing is safe and prolongs political careers, but accomplishes nothing else.

It’s now far beyond party politics. This is anarchy. This is riotous rebellion. There is no other excuse for the foolishness taking place in Washington, D.C. and around the country. The entrenched Washington establishment hates change. That’s why it takes so long for conventional channels to effect anything beneficial. When little happens, there are fewer unintended consequences and the ignorant masses won’t see any difference…to appreciate or protest. Therefore, those in office stay in office and continue feeding their own pockets.

The Ninth Circus recently made another of their now infamous bonehead decisions. They, again, made a political statement in favor of rainbows and perceived harmony instead of homeland security. The written opinion, meant to justify the decision, illustrated that it was not a constitutional or even a logical decision. It was purely political.

The news agencies are out to get the president, his staff, his advisers and his confirmed department heads. Because they parse his every word to benefit their preconceived agenda, Sean Spicer skips questions from many of the leftest news-maker-uppers. When not called upon in recent press briefings, they became even louder and more malevolent using comparisons to Hitler and the Taliban in their talk programs and opinion columns hoping to win greater access and favor. DUH!

Much, if not all, of this is due to the fact that President Trump is a political outsider. He is learning the ropes and he’s learning who’s dangling them in front of him. Talk of impeachment began shortly after he won the election! Thus, it may take a bit longer for things to settle. None the less, he will dodge the alligators as he removes their habitat.

The left, the media (redundancy noted), the right and even the apolitical bureaucrats don’t yet understand his non-governmental style. They are not used to getting things done rapidly. The civil servant desk jockeys, in particular, are not familiar with justifying their pay by accomplishing tasks within a reasonable time.  They too are balking at the new administration.  The first 100 days will be primarily the sorting and filing firing days.

BOAST OF ACHIEVEMENTS, BLAME BUSH, BELEAGUER TRUMP

February 3, 2017

Just like the nightly liars and bird cage liners, I just can’t say enough about our recent former president. He manages to stay in the news almost as well as the news has managed to stay on President Trump. He hates it when the Klieg lights are not focused on him.  For the first time in over eight years, Obama used some restraint for an amazing ten days. Then he made a fool of himself again.

Every time President Obama was caught indecisive, from his campaigning days on, he blamed President Bush for the predicament. The situation, any situation, was caused by his predecessor. Well into his second term as the country’s theoretic leader he refused to take responsibility for the outcome of his own actions or inaction. To be truthful, the closest he ever came to accepting responsibility was when he said, “it could have been done differently” referring to one of his many f*#kups.

Now he’s weighing in on his successor. Still not ready to accept responsibility for jobs, the economy, global hatred and distrust for the U.S. caused by his lack of leadership, he is mocking any changes made to mitigate his ineptness. Like any good Alinsky acolyte, he is encouraging anarchy.

On Monday of this week, Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis said, “President Obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country”. “Citizens exercising their constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake.”

Burning cars, breaking windows, beating people with opposing views is not the way to display dissatisfaction with a policy or administration. Protest, yes. Riot, no.

Per normal, he got it wrong again. In an effort to raise angst and anger among his loony groupies, he interjected the “Muslim ban” meme into the vetting of potential terrorists. Conflate for effect…or outright lie. That is the way of the progressive left.

It antagonizes the left any time a particular group of people is somehow restricted. Well, that is, groups other than normal people, people who use logic and reason in decision making, those who believe in and follow the constitution and abide by the laws (God’s laws or man’s), etc.

No, he couldn’t raise enough emotion among his hate-filled, hurtful and vicious lemmings when he was president to order or invoke martial law. Oh what glorious power that would have bestowed upon him. Perhaps now that he can again pray on his knees, head to floor, five times a day he can find the enlightenment to enrage the left and elevate them to complete and violent nihilism. Then he can blame Trump!

 

 

 

 

PUBLIC EDUCATION OR GLOBALIST INCUBATION CENTERS

January 31, 2017

Over the last few decades, the state-run indoctrination centers have seemingly lost all focus on education. Instead, they concentrate on social issues.  Gender identity, climate variance and diversity are prominent.

However, as core academic scores drop the government continues to take over your rights and usurps the authority for raising your children. Oh, you still remain the responsible party when something goes wrong. They just want complete jurisdiction over instilling a radical leftist viewpoint into the malleable minds of your offspring. They foster incubation facilities for social collectivism that demand governmental authority over child raising. <link>

Thanks to progressives pushing their communal association plans, kids of the U.S. today have less chance of success than ever before. The American Dream is now ascension to mediocrity.

According to a 2012 National Center for Education Statistics report (the most recent found), math scores for the U.S. dropped from 25th to 31st among developed nations since 2009; from 20th to 24th in science; and from 11th to 21st in reading. We now rank #1 in gender diversity education, though.

Even Portugal (a socialist dominated political and economic system), expects more parental participation. Recently, one school principal posted the following in the hallways.

Dear parents

  • We would like to remind you that magic words such as hello, please, you’re welcome, I’m sorry, and thank you, all begin to be learned at home.
  • It’s also at home that children learn to be honest, to be on time, diligent, show friends their sympathy, as well as show utmost respect for their elders and all teachers.
  • Home is where they learn to be clean, not talk with their mouths full, and how/where to properly dispose of garbage.
  • Home is also where they learn to be organized, to take good care of their belongings, and that it’s not ok to touch others.
  • Here at school, on the other hand, we teach language, math, history, geography, physics, sciences, and physical education. We only reinforce the education that children receive at home from their parents.

I guess they’ve learned that some things are better handled at home.  Doing away with the over-lording and abysmal failure known as the Department of Education is a first step.  Returning supervision of education to local districts with direct input from parents might be a second step.  Competition in the form of school choice could also help those students who want to learn.

As with so many things, decentralizing massive bureaucratic authorities in favor of localized responsibility and control is the proper direction to making America great again.
