You do not have to be Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs to write for Slate

Slate is the MSNBS of online magazines, and, here is the latest outrageous outrage they have discovered. Beware Infant Gender Assignment!

Obstetricians, doctors, and midwives commit this procedure on infants every single day, in every single country. In reality, this treatment is performed almost universally without even asking for the parents’ consent, making this practice all the more insidious. It’s called infant gender assignment: When the doctor holds your child up to the harsh light of the delivery room, looks between its legs, and declares his opinion: It’s a boy or a girl, based on nothing more than a cursory assessment of your offspring’s genitals.

Declares his opinion? And you say this “opinion” is based on something as flimsy as genitals? SHOCKING! I mean, yes, in fact gender IS defined by genitals, just as writing for Slate is defined on absurdity. I am trying to conger up how the “evil” gender assignment goes. The doctor, holds up a child, peers at the genitals, and calmly calls the nurse over.

“Excuse me nurse, but this baby appears to have a penis, do you concur?”

“Why yes doctor, that looks like a penis to me”

“So, this baby then, must be a boy”

“Why yes doctor, yes”

See, this is OUTRAGEOUS! And thankfully, we have an outraged American to expose this shockingly shocking outrageously outrageous outrage! I know I am outraged! and we all should be. I mean think about where this might lead! The Slate piece continues

We tell our children, “You can be anything you want to be.” We say, “A girl can be a doctor, a boy can be a nurse,” but why in the first place must this person be a boy and that person be a girl? Your infant is an infant. Your baby knows nothing of dresses and ties, of makeup and aftershave, of the contemporary social implications of pink and blue. As a newborn, your child’s potential is limitless. The world is full of possibilities that every person deserves to be able to explore freely, receiving equal respect and human dignity while maximizing happiness through individual expression.

Wait, what? How dare this Slate writer call that infant an infant? Who the Hell are they to place that kind of label on that baby? I mean, yes, the fact IS that it is an infant, but facts do not matter. I mean, if a penis or vagina do not have anything to do with gender, then how does a baby actually being a baby mean anything either? But, this is important stuff, it MUST BE because only really important topics are covered in Slate right? Either that or this writer is as crazy as they come

With infant gender assignment, in a single moment your baby’s life is instantly and brutally reduced from such infinite potentials down to one concrete set of expectations and stereotypes, and any behavioral deviation from that will be severely punished—both intentionally through bigotry, and unintentionally through ignorance. That doctor (and the power structure behind him) plays a pivotal role in imposing those limits on helpless infants, without their consent, and without your informed consent as a parent. This issue deserves serious consideration by every parent, because no matter what gender identity your child ultimately adopts, infant gender assignment has effects that will last through their whole life.

See! Your child’s life will be RUINED, R-U-I-N-E-D RUINED if a doctor is allowed to say it is a boy, or it is a girl! Oh there are several layers of KRAZY here folks I mean this MUST be a hoax right? No one could possibly believe the absurdities uttered here right? I mean even Slate must no allow this level of KRAZY right? Wrong!

Why must we force this on kids at birth? What is achieved, besides reinforcing tradition? What could be the harm in letting a child wait to declare for themself who they are, once they’re old enough (which is generally believed to happen around age 2 or 3)?

What insanity is this? When was the last time you, as a parent, grandparent, or uncle as I a witnessed a 2 or 3-year-old “declare themselves”? I doubt anyone has, but what would it sound like? Let us think here.

Think of a family gathering. As the adults are drinking their coffees, here comes young Patrick, age 3. “Excuse me everyone” Patrick says, clinking a fork on a water glass. “I am glad I have you all hear, I have something I need to say. I am, in fact, a girl, or rather a woman, trapped in a little boy’s body. Yes, yes, I do have a penis, but do not label me because of that you genderist bastards! I am woman, hear me roar! So, I have a list of demands here, call them my Gender Justice List if you will.” I have more here, but you will have to wait for the book to be published. it is called “My fight for Gender Justice: How My Inner Vagina and I beat Genderism!”

Of course, that is a bit of absurdity to illustrate how wrong, foolish, inane, insane, BATSHIT CRAZY this writer really is. Yes, Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs!

 

Liberalism is an Ideology of Pessimism. Undeniable Truth #2 about Liberalism

Years ago, when I wrote weekly columns for various newspapers and websites I wrote a piece about how the Right was optimistic, and the Left pessimistic. That idea struck me over time. I watched, read and listened to Liberals and no matter what the topic was, they always seemed angry, embittered, and oddest of all they seemed strangely happy to be angry and bitter. It seemed that being a victim was the goal of every Liberal. And not just being a victim mind you, but being the biggest victim, or at least a member of a victim group. What a strange thing to aspire to, what a sad thing to aspire to. And the “victims” were not just poor people, no, actors, professors, politicians, very successful people who were Liberal seemed stuck on this victim mantra too. I began to visualize a line of Liberals singing new words to that old Dr. Pepper jingle. “I’m a victim she’s a victim, he’s a victim, wouldn’t you like to be a victim too”

Nothing today better illustrates the glorification of victimhood than the latest Leftist creation, White Privilege. Here is a video put together by Progressives Today that shows the White Privilege con game in action. Liberals trying to make more victims, and instill greater levels of pessimism in our youth

Lest you think that victim pimping is the only form of pessimism among Liberals consider this. It is almost exclusively Liberals that really believe in Climate Change, or Climate Disruption, as they are now styling it. They truly believe we are doomed unless we radically change, and by change I mean lower our standard of living. There is real panic among the  true believers. So, what if you had a fried like this, a friend who was just certain we must act now, or it would be too late? What if you found some research that painted a less drastic picture? What if you shared this with your stressed out friend? Likely that friend would attack you as a climate denier, or some flat earther. Rather than at least looking at your information, they would become angry that you dared challenge the teachings of what I call the Al Gore Cult of Climate Change. You would naturally be confused by this. Until you understood that Liberalism is an ideology for the pessimistic. Do not interrupt their bad attitude or their pity parties man. They do not want any good news, pessimism rules with them.

It is not just climate change either. Take issues of race for example. What is the constant mantra of Liberals? Racism is still rampant in America. We really have not come that far. Republicans want to take us back to Jim Crow. Racism is inherent to America, and so on. And again, you dare not try to paint a brighter picture to Liberals. If you do you will be called racist, or at the very least out of touch with the history. You will be told you just do not understand that slavery still haunts Black Americans. And do NOT, I repeat do not mention that slavery has been gone for 150 years either. If you do you will be accused of defending slavery. Again, do not interrupt the pity party!

Feminism, another wing of Leftism is likely the most bitter and pessimistic of all. Men are all pigs, all sex is rape, men are pigs, all sex dehumanizes women, men are still pigs, women are victims of the Patriarchy, and yes, PIGS! What a lousy attitude to carry around with you in life. Everything is negative with Liberals. As a test listen to Liberals, listen to their rhetoric, and see how much pessimism in contained in it. And we wonder why so many liberals are so angry? 

Liberalism is an ideology for the_______? Undeniable truth #1 about the Left

The obvious issue here is what should fill in that blank. The truth is several words fit perfectly. Liberalism as an ideology is complicated, it has many facets. Today, I will begin to define Liberalism for what it is, in terms I believe are indisputable. Liberals reading these will howl but, I defy anyone to refute my points. Some of these I have discovered through my own dealings with, and my own writings about Liberals. Others I have heard others say, and upon reflection, found that I agree. This first one, for example, I picked up listening to Dennis Prager, whom I admire greatly. As soon as I heard Dennis say Liberals say Liberals are narcissists it was like a light went on. So, with thanks to Dennis Prager allow me to explain why Liberalism is an ideology for the narcissistic. 

Think about this. What are Liberals consumed with, I mean truly consumed by? Emotions? Yes, a sense that they care more? Certainly. A feeling that they are smarter, and better informed? Absolutely. For a Liberal everything, ultimately, is all about that person they see in the mirror.

To the radical Atheist for example, and yes every radical Atheist I have ever heard speak is a person of the Left, their opposition of any public mention of God is not about a “separation of church and state” at all. It is about them. They are so consumed by their own feelings, and their own egos that they cannot tolerate anyone holding a different view. This is why they are so nasty, and such bullies. And no, most Atheists are NOT this way. Most of them are live and let live. But the Atheists who lose their minds over a cross, or nativity scene, or over Santa Claus in a Christmas parade are radical both in their belief and approach to others who have differing beliefs. They must have their way, and they must have the last word.

Ten or so years ago, I watched a story about two boys who really wanted to join the Boy Scouts. It was their dream, they loved everything about the Boy Scouts, well almost everything. It seems they just could not bring themselves to join  because the oath offended them, it mentioned God, and as Atheists, well. So, these boys had a dilemma. They could join the scouts, and just mouth the oath and enjoy all the other things about scouting, or they could not join, or they could try to force the Boy Scouts, through a suit to change their pledge. Take a wild guess what path they chose. I remember one boy saying he was standing for his principles. 

So, to these “principled” boys, the proper thing to do wasn’t to accept the Boy Scout rules. No, it was to force all the other scouts to change their traditions to accommodate them. These little narcissists had to have their way, and everyone else was expected to change for them.

Of course, this attitude is quite common among Liberals isn’t it? If anyone offends a Liberal they must apologize, or else because a Liberal’s feelings are the most important thing ever. You cannot dare question a government program that wastes money, and gets no results because the most important thing about that program is not results, it is intentions you see. Liberals can point to that program and say “see I care, I am a good person!” It is all about them. Any symbol that offends a Liberal must be immediately pulled down, erased, or removed from public view because Liberals say so. If it offends a Liberal it must go, period! It does not matter if removing, or erasing a symbol deeply hurts many more people than it appeases. Liberals worship their feelings, and their feelings are the only ones that count.

I could go on, and on, and on, and, well you get the point. Liberals are very intolerant, and very smug, and their egos are out of control, and that is because narcissists gravitate towards Liberalism because Liberalism is ultimately about Liberals wallowing in their own over inflated sense of self-importance.

Range Report and review of the Smith & Wesson M&P 9

Got my newest pistol to the range today and I gotta say that all those good things I have heard about the M&P line are, well, accurate. I LOVE the trigger, smooth, and although the pull is rated at 6.5 pounds it feels much less to me. The gun has a trigger travel of .300 inch rest to fire and a reset of .140 inch. The fact is the gun is hard to shoot slowly. Recoil was minimal, and I found myself zipping through the 17 round mags pretty quickly, It is just a fun shooter for me. I had to keep slowing myself down.And, naturally, my accuracy, which was acceptable when firing rapidly, improved. I think I hit 112 out of 120 in the 8-10 rings, and no shots outside the 7 ring, and once I slowed down just a bit, I wore out the 9-10 rings (all from 5-12 yards). 

The gun feels great in the hand, no not as good as my Sig, but as far as feel goes, I would rate it a 9 out of 10. Accuracy is not an issue the sights are great and getting a fast aim from a holster pull is easy. My groups were good, again, I am not looking to be an expert marksman but to be accurate and quick consistently. Again 9 out of 10. It is a striker fired gun, so the trigger pull is consistent and again, just a super fun gun to shoot.

I should also note that there is no stiffness in the magazines at all. The 17th shell went in nearly as easy as the first. But with a 17-shot capacity, a speed loader might be in my near future. The gun also came with two extra backstraps, a large and small which I will never use, the medium fitting my hand great.

As far as the look of the gun, I would say 8 out of 10. It is not the sexiest gun, but the functionality rocks. And I would rate it 8 out 10 for ease of disassembly and cleaning. Again, it is not a Sig, which is the standard I ultimately compare all my guns to, but it is, a damn fine weapon I would feel entirely comfortable pulling if that need God forbid, ever arises. The bottom line is would I recommend an M&P to a friend? Definitely!

I am planning on getting back tomorrow and working on some different drills to improve my overall quickness and accuracy, and will post about that.

If I were president………….

I would be very clear, not “clear” like Mr. Let Me Be Clear While I Lie Through My Teeth To You, but truly clear, especially to other nations.

To North Korea I would say, this. The next threat you issue towards us, or our allies will be taken seriously, and will result in your country losing a major military installation of our choosing. A second threat will result in, well, you might not want to even think about that.

To Hamid Karzai I would say. We are leaving, you are on your own, you will not place our military at a disadvantage with moronic rules of engagement that favor terrorists. 

To Mexico I would say simply that we are going to seal our border and control who enters. Any group caught smuggling drugs into America will be found and eradicated by any means within our power to bring to bear. Also those drug cartels, which pose, in my view, a threat to Americans living in border states, will be dealt with by YOU, or I will confer with my military leaders and discern the most effective way to eradicate that vermin. And we will do so, and you will stay the Hell out-of-the-way.

To Iran a simple note would suffice. If you continue pursuing nuclear weapons, and thus posing a grave threat to us and our allies, I will not only support Israel in taking your capability out, but the United States military will be taking full part.

To China just this. Dear Chicoms, we will fly our fucking planes where we want WHEN we want, end of discussion! Oh, and about Taiwan, and Japan, do not even think about it.

Finally to the UN just a few words. Get you building the Hell out of America, YESTERDAY!

 

What Liberals think vs Reality

What Liberals think- If we are really nice to Islamists, and show them we want peace, they will like us

Reality- They will still want to cut your head off or blow you up

What Liberals think- Rights come from big government

Reality-Rights come from God, they are Natural Rights

What Liberals think- Equality is the ultimate Utopia

Reality- Liberals prefer “equality” to liberty, even if that equality is an equality of suffering under Totalitarianism

What Liberals think- The States enforcement of the “common good” is more important than individual rights

Reality- Once the “common good” supersedes individual liberty, no liberty is safe, and ultimately, the “common good” will be decided by some for of dictatorship

What Liberals Think- Freedom of speech is sacrosanct, as long as that speech does not contradict Liberalism, then it is hate speech

Reality- Freedom of speech IS sacrosanct, no matter who it offends

What Liberals Think- Armed citizens rarely if ever use guns in self-defense, so strict gun control will reduce violent crime

Reality- Guns are used hundreds of thousands of times annually by Americans to defend themselves, so disarming the people will cause a dramatic increase in violent crime

 

DaleyGator Podcast You do not have to be an idiot to write for Slate, but it helps

Here is some background from RS McCain before you listen to my views on Allison Benedikt and her column If You Send Your Kids to Private School, You Are a Bad Person

That’s an interesting headline, which Allison Benedikt endeavors to justify without success, because she’s an idiot.

I went K–12 to a terrible public school. My high school didn’t offer AP classes, and in four years, I only had to read one book. . . . I left home woefully unprepared for college, and without that preparation, I left college without having learned much there either. You know all those important novels that everyone’s read? I haven’t. I know nothing about poetry, very little about art, and please don’t quiz me on the dates of the Civil War. I’m not proud of my ignorance. But guess what the horrible result is? I’m doing fine. I’m not saying it’s a good thing that I got a lame education. I’m saying that I survived it, and so will your child, who must endure having no AP calculus so that in 25 years there will be AP calculus for all.

Allison is “doing fine,” because she’s an editor at Slate, where any ill-educated cretin can get hired, as long as they’re a liberal white girl whose wedding was reported by the New York Times.

Oh, and apparently being an anti-Israel Jew helps, too.

Free of knowledge, unencumbered by facts or logic — yes, send your kids to public school so they can be a liberal like Allison Benedikt.

Good thoughts no doubt. Allison wants your kid to suffer because other kids suffer  because “EQUALITY” or something.

Now here is my take, listen and enjoy. Click the Pic to Listen

Bette Middler is a Babbling Idiot!

Good Freaking Grief at the things Liberals say!

Actress and singer Bette Midler is quickly becoming one of Hollywood’s most addle-minded personalities.

On Twitter Wednesday, she actually wrote, “Do you find it odd that in America today, it’s easier to take a life than to get health insurance?”

Do you find it odd that in America today, it’s easier to take a life than to get health insurance? Gun reform now!

All emotion, no logic!

The ongoing war against God

There are certain truths in life, maybe I will make a list of them one day, kind of like Rush Limbaugh did years ago, but for now, allow me to focus on just one of these truths. Leftists HATE God. Yes, I know any Leftist reading this will howl in outrage. They will say that they merely wish to keep the “separation” of church and state that our Founders placed in the Constitution. Of course, the fact that there is no such separation never stops Leftists, and Liberals, who are just Leftists in training from finding it. And, sadly, enough Leftists judges have also found, or rather imagined, or maybe invented is a better term, such a constitutional standard.

Now, you might be thinking that just because the Left gets the Constitution wrong does not necessarily mean that they hate God. And I would agree, if, and this is a massive if, the Left did not spend so much time trying to use that imaginary clause in the Constitution to stamp out every last mention of God in the public realm. The sad fact is that wherever you can find a  display of the Ten Commandments in a school, or a public park, or a courthouse, you will find an outraged Atheist speed dialing the ACLU, or some other Left wing organization. The sad fact is that these same miscreants have done their level best to erase Christmas displays anywhere. In an odd twist, these  very same Intolerants will gladly tell you that Santa Claus, and Christmas Trees are NOT Christian symbols, but rather pagan, or secular symbols of the “Winter Solstice”, or whatever generic name they are currently using for CHRISTmas! But, let a city put Santa and his reindeer up in a city park, or let a school have a Christmas party, or even dare to have red and green cups and napkins at that party and the same freak shows will be screaming to high Heaven. Come on, make up your minds already.

Again, the excuse often used for waging war on cup cakes with the dreaded red or green icing at a school party, or for raising hell over a manger scene or a Christmas Tree in the local library, is that someone might be, hold your breath, offended! The right not to be offended is another right found in the Constitution according to Leftist’s deluded mind. Of course that right against having your feelings hurt only protects Leftist whiners and agitators from offense. Every one else, A.K.A. Normal Americans are not protected. Odd isn’t it? The Left will argue passionately about fairness and equality, until something they do offends a normal American. then the “right not to be offended” morphs into the right to fuck off and die.

For those still not convinced that the Left hates God let me give you on more item to ruminate on. The Left  wraps itself up in the first amendment, especially the freedom of speech part. It also wraps itself up in the “community”. Leftists are always talking about community, the Black Community, the Hispanic Community, the LGBT Community, this community that community. But let the Normal American Community express themselves by putting up a war memorial in a city park that dares to mention God in any way, even if that is just a simple cross, and the same Leftists are there to try to take that memorial down.

So, the Left loves fairness, and equality, they hate when anyone is offended, they love freedom of expression, and “community”, as long as it benefits their agenda. And in this case erasing public mentions or displays of Christianity IS the sole agenda. So, what else can we assume here but that Leftists hate God. But, why do they hate God? Why would radical Atheists be so vehement about forcing everyone else to submit to their beliefs? Note, I said radical Atheists because most Atheists really do not give a flip about a Santa Claus in a park. They do not believe, and do not have time to worry about your beliefs, which is fine with me. So, again the question. Why do Leftists hate God? Well, because they hate liberty and individualism.

Think of America. Is there a greater target for Leftist hate than America? Is there a nation more maligned among Leftists than America? The answer is no. And, when you dissect all the protests against America, you find a common theme. The hatred of liberty. And where does liberty, as honored in America come from? Liberty comes from God. The American ideal is that we are created with certain rights. These rights have a source, and that source is God. Nothing will agitate a Leftists more than any value system that dares challenge their core ideal, that rights are NOT individual rights. Leftists hold that rights are collective, and that these rights come not from God, but from government. And as the source of these collective rights, government can restrict, limit, or take certain rights at will.

So it comes down to a basic, fundamental issue. If the Individualists are right, then God is the source of our rights, and those rights are inherently OURS. If Individualists are correct, then government does not have the authority to give, take, or restrict these natural rights. To a Leftist/Collectivist, the source of all our rights is government, and all those right are collective. Leftists can never form their Utopian State as long as we, the people recognize God as the source of our liberty. So, for that Utopia to grow God must go. That is why Leftists hate God.

All you really need to know about Leftism in 13 simple rules

I decided earlier today to do a post outlining the Rules of Leftism so everyone could come to grips with the undeniable truth about the evil I call Leftism.

1- When a Leftist says “by any means…” BELIEVE them! They have a moral compass guided by one thing. If it helps them win, it is moral.

2- Leftism is an ideology of convenience. A Leftist, or a Liberal (a Leftist in training) can change their stance on an issue depending on what party is in power. Just because Leftists wanted to kick Clarence Thomas to the curb over accusations of sexual harassment, did not mean far more serious allegations about Bill Clinton mattered to them.

3- Leftism is just another bastard child of Marxism. Leftists never wish to be called out for what they really are, which is Communists. Everything Marx believed in, they believe in. Never be fooled by their rhetoric.

4- Leftism is about one thing, control! Control of you, your earnings, your property, your kids, your  rights, and certainly your thinking!

5- Leftists often use the term “power to the people”. Yet, everything they strive for seeks to dis-empower people. As Dennis Prager says the bigger the state, the smaller the individual, and the Left has yet to meet a state that is too big or an individual that is powerless enough,

6- The Left HATES your gun more than anything else. Why? Well because Leftism is all about Collectivism, and the ultimate enemy of Collectivists is Individualism. And nothing promotes Individualism more than the right to keep and bear arms. There can never be the Leftist Utopia as long as the right to keep and bear arms is in place. That right, given by the Creator, and protected by the Constitution our Founders gave us is the one liberty that all other’s hang on. The Left knows this, which is why they seek to destroy that liberty.

7- Leftists do not believe in God-given, or natural rights. They believe all right  MUST come from, and be controlled by big government. God-given rights cannot be touched by government. They are as inherent to us as is our soul. The Founders listed such rights, and constrained the government from restricting those rights. The Left has been trying to undo that ever since the birth of America.

8- Leftists seek to allow government to control individual liberty for the “common good”. To the Left, individual liberty, be it free speech, self-defense, freedom of religion, is to be trampled when it becomes a detriment to that common good. And, of course, only a Leftist government can “properly” judge what the common good is.

9- Leftists love freedom of speech, as long it they approve of it!

10- Leftists are not racists, or sexists, they are Marxists. Yes a Leftist will use racist, and sexist attacks on women and minorities when it suits them, But their motivation is not to discriminate, it is to USE those minorities to gain electoral power. And that electoral power can then be used to “fundamentally change” America.

11- The Left divides, then labels people, so as to control them. The Left uses this tactic with great effect. They have used it with women, Blacks, Hispanics, Homosexuals, Asians, the old, the young. First they convince people in a certain group that EVERYTHING in their life revolves around their sexuality, or gender or race. This allows the Left to convince any group that they must THINK as a group, or they are a traitor to that group. Next, the Left convinces these groups that Conservatives hate them, and that the only hope for their gender, sexuality, or race is to vote against the Conservatives.

12- Ignorance is the fertilizer that fuels Leftism. Leftism thrives on the uneducated. And as well on those that have been indoctrinated rather than educated. This is why Leftists always want more focus, and money for education, mandatory pre-school, and for everyone to go to college.

13- Leftists hate powerful corporations, and powerful groups like the NRA, but worship at the altar of all-powerful government. It is horrible to the Left when a health insurance company will not cover you. But, if the government dictates who gets care, and what type of care, well that is Utopia. The Left hates it when gas prices are high, and the people suffer as long as “big oil” is profiting. But if the oil industry were nationalized, and the government made all the money, and gas prices were even higher? Yes, Utopia!

Take these rules, pass them around, and never ever forget them!

It would seem that the Pit of Eternal Liberal Stupidity is, indeed, bottomless

Pit of Eternal Liberal Stupidity

Pit of Eternal Liberal Stupidity

Wouldn’t it be refreshing, just once, if Liberals admitted they were wrong instead of doubling down on inanity

Here’s a copy of the letter the school sent to parents:

Dear Parents and Guardians:

I am writing to let you know about an incident that occurred this morning in one of our classrooms and encourage you to discuss this matter with your child in a manner you deem most appropriate.

During breakfast this morning, one of our students used food to make inappropriate gestures that disrupted the class. While no physical threats were made and no one [was] harmed, the student had to be removed from the classroom.

As you are aware, the … Code of Student Conduct and appropriate consequences related to violations of the code are clearly spelled out in the Student Handbook, which was sent home during the first week of school and can be found on our website, http://www.aacps.org….

If your children express that they are troubled by today’s incident, please talk with them and help them share their feelings. Our school counselor is available to meet with any students who have the need to do so next week. In general, please remind them of the importance of making good choices.

HT: Legal Insurrection

So, if a student, a child, eating a strawberry Pop-Tart into a shape, because seven-year-olds are kids and kids do that kind of thing, causes a teacher with obvious mental shortcomings to freak out, other kids might need counseling? Excuse me while my head explodes.
