HRC: “I never sent or received any classified material. They are retroactively classifying it. … I have absolutely no concerns about it whatsoever.”

Chuck Todd: “There is an open FBI investigation into this matter about how you may have handled classified material,” he said. “Are you 100 percent confident that nothing is going to come of this investigation?”

HRC: “I am 100 percent confident,” Clinton replied. “This is as security review that was requested, it is being carried out and it will be resolved.”

And these….

“My concern is that your answer that nothing new was found in the Benghazi hearings continues to give me some doubts,” the woman said. “Everybody knows you can’t write 30,000 emails to your yoga instructor.”

We need to quit worrying about 'being historic'. What kind of outcome do voters think they will get if they elect people who's primary purpose is to be remembered in history? Everyone remembers Ghengis Khan!

"It's immoral for governments to conscript slaves" -- If they're already slaves, the Morality part was already violated. Since slaves were deemed "property", the Owner could do whatever he damn well pleased. The question is: Is a citizen the govt's slave/property? If not, what is the Constitutional basis for the draft?

So now I switch my support for President to the libertarian party.
It is hard to believe my country has devolved so far into a socialistic society.
We are so formed and controlled by government schooling and media that we no longer can make decisions without being told what to do.
Socialism is a cancer that requires a surgical procedure to remove.
We are sold what to do by advertising techniques and buy our so called representatives already chosen for us like we are sold bottled water or laundry detergent.

Libertarians have two inherent problems that I just happen to find admirable, but self defeating. First, Libertarians by the nature of their mentality don't want to be told what, how, or when to do anything. Their "freedom mentality" prevents them, as a group, from seeing their goals through to an end. Second, they aren't willing to compromise when it comes to freedom. I love that about them. However, these people by majority are free thinkers,.. deep thinkers,... critical thinking thinkers,... socially and fiscally responsible,... and far better Christ followers than the so called Christians of our society as they are not as hypocritical. With ninety-eight percent of the population too stupid to walk and chew gum at the same time, Libertarians sound like martians speaking a foreign language.

In fact, today's campuses mimic ideological boot camps. Tenured professors seek to indoctrinate young people in certain preconceived progressive political agendas. Environmental studies classes are not very open to debating the "settled science" of man-caused, carbon-induced global warming -- or the need for immediate and massive government intervention to address it. Grade-conscious and indebted students make the necessary ideological adjustments.

Trying to politely "get along" with someone who is condoning violent aggression--including against YOU--is fairly stupid, not to mention counter-productive. "Hey, let's agree to disagree. Your opinion that I should be forcibly robbed, and caged if I resist, is equally valid to my opinion that neither of us should be robbed." Ummmm, no. It isn't. Statists SHOULD be made to feel as much guilt and shame as possible, because they are advocating something destructive and immoral. If someone was advocating mass murder, would you be all polite and civil to them, and talk as if their position is acceptable? I hope not.
Larkin Rose

“Rights aren’t rights if someone can take them away. They’re privileges. That’s all we’ve ever had in this country, is a bill of temporary privileges. And if you read the news even badly, you know that every year the list gets shorter and shorter. Sooner or later, the people in this country are gonna realize the government does not give a fuck about them! The government doesn’t care about you, or your children, or your rights, or your welfare or your safety. It simply does not give a fuck about you! It’s interested in its own power. That’s the only thing. Keeping it and expanding it wherever possible.”
George Carlin

From The Next President

To any aspiring Democratic politician:

If you'd like to be President one day --  Maybe soon --  Put the following in a full page ad in the WaPo, get yourself booked on some talk shows and read this: 

An Open Letter from a Democratic Politician to all Democratic Politicians

My fellow Democrats – Let's face it; we blew it. Lead by Speaker Pelosi, Chairman Schiff and Chairman Nadler, these past 3 years we have conducted ourselves in a way that has severely divided America. Continuing with this impeachment hoax – and it is a hoax and we all know it - will only destroy the Democratic Party and impugn all the great principles we once stood for. Our Leadership – and our so-called 'friends' in the media – have strongly encouraged, even threatened us, if did not 'toe the line'. As a result, regardless of where you're from or how long you've been in office, very few of us will be returning after the coming elections.

We have only one choice to save America and th…

A Doctor - Patient conversation

A  Doctor is explaining the pandemic to a coma patient who just woke up…

Dr: “They shut down the world because of a worldwide pandemic.”
Patient: “OMG! How many people are infected?”
Dr : “About 11 Million.”
Patient: “OMG! 11 million people died?”
Dr: “No, only 500 thousand… Kind of.”
Patient: “What do you mean ‘kind of’?”
Dr: “Well… they keep halving the number of deaths due to double counting, inaccurate tests and mislabeled death certificates. Also, most of the people that die are elderly and dying of other things. There are also people who died because of incorrect ventilator use and other treatments because no-one really understands the virus.”
Patient: “I don’t get it. So how many died from ONLY the virus… like literally dropped dead in the street?”
Dr: “No-one. Only in hospitals and nursing homes”
Patient: “I don’t get it.”
Dr: “Neither do I, it’s a very confusing time.”
Patient: “So they cured the other 11 million people then?”
Dr: “No, most didn’t have any symptoms and in fa…

Gillette, Toxic Masculinity and the F Word

The Gillette "Toxic Masculinity" commercial not-so-subtle lecturing men (their primary clientele) about being Kinder, Gentler Wussies the company says they should be is rapidly fading into the dust of Catholics and Indians, yesterday's news. But before the Forgettable is actually forgotten, here are a couple hardly-mentioned observations about why this TV spot got its embarrassing 15 minutes of fame.
