  • Vanity - Congresswoman, Frederica Wilson plays the"RACE" card one too many times.

    Most Americans, even legal immigrants, love being called just simply Americans. That goes for White and Black Americans also.

    A co-worker, who was born in Nigeria and became a naturalized citizen a few months ago is ADAMANT that he is NOT "African American." He's American, plain and simple.

    It's no different than the "love" they have for John McCain, when he's in his self-serving "Maverick" mode. Any other time, he's an object of derision for the left.

    Who the hell can say anything “nice” about Hiltary Clinton?

    Up until last week, Harvey Weinstein.

    Hillary bragging about how she tried to get out of going to President Trump's inauguration. While the clapping seals in the audience laughed and applauded, all it shows is what a petty hag she is.

    What are “Baby on Board” stickers supposed to do? What if you have both, baby on board and no valuables on board?

    Whenever I used to see one of those stupid "baby on board" signs, I remember thinking I needed to get one that said "Axe Murderer On Board."

    No, but a live Wolverine inside the Car might do the trick.

    I had a friend in high school who had a very well trained, un-docked doberman. One afternoon we were heading out fishing, and he had the dog with us, and we had to stop off at Walmart. He left the dog in the truck, along with all the fishing gear, with the windows (and the back window) completely rolled down and went inside.

    When we came back out, he noticed some blood spatter on the tailgate, and the dog just wagging his tail like he was really proud of himself. Nothing was missing.

    Is he senile, stupid or just plain to lazy to study?

    None of the above.

    I think that one word succinctly describes his ideas. EVIL.

    It appears that many of our “institutions of higher learning” are populated by some of the dumbest people on the planet, and they’re identified by the label, “professor.”

  • Top U.S. school district to 'indoctrinate' teachers against Israel

    One of my favorite films is called "Stand And Deliver".It was made in the early 80s and tells the true story about a dedicated math teacher who encouraged kids from a "barrio" section of LA to study calculus.An outstanding film,IMO.

    One of mine too. Edward James Olmos did an amazing job of portraying Jaime Escalante, and it was a terrific movie. It also demonstrated perfectly the "soft racism of low expectations." He was (is?) a strong believer that kids are capable to rising to challenges, none of this "participation trophy" crap.

    FWIW, it impressed the guys of South Park enough to do an episode with Cartman becoming a teacher in the barios, teaching the kids how to cheat on tests!

    Does the curriculum include the bit about how muslim arabs destroyed Jewish cemeteries and used the headstones for pavement? Or how they would not allow Jews to pray at Jewish holy sites? Or how they defiled and destroyed numerous Jewish holy sites? Or how Hebron had a large Jewish population before the arab muslims slaughtered the Jews in the late 1920s, in an act of "ethnic cleansing?" Or best of all, if a Jew were caught blowing the Shofar, a holy ceremony of blowing a ram's horn on the High Holidays, was considered a crime worthy of capital punishment?

    I'm sure all of those will be in the curriculum.

    She could make a pretty good living doing porn, along with Jessica Chastain.

    I certainly have no interest in hearing anything they have to say, especially if it isn’t written by someone else.

    If not for a certain blue dress, her life would have been completely destroyed, with possible criminal charges for "stalking" an innocent POTUS, rather than becoming the butt of late night jokes.

  • Former Carl’s Jr. CEO: NFL could have prevented protest mess, as any competent employer would

    Let's not forget that the NFL JEALOUSLY protects the uniforms and images of players wearing the uniforms. By doing that, the NFL acknowledges that while a player is wearing an official NFL uniform, they are representing both the team and the NFL. That's why when an NFL player performs in a commercial, if it's not officially sanctioned by the NFL, they wear something similar, but it's NOT a genuine jersey.

    This means that the NFL DOES sanction the disrespect of the flag, and the American public.

  • WAY too late? NFL commish Roger Goodell describes what he’d like league to ‘stay out of’

    If the NFL “take a knee” protest is not against the anthem or the United States and its military, then take a knee at the end of the first quarter.

    More importantly, the NFL and the left need to be slapped with the fact that THE LEFT set the standard for outrage. The only thing that counts is the view of the offended.

    When these lowlifes say "they weren't showing disrespect for the flag," it doesn't matter what they believed they were doing. All that matters is the fact that Capernick offended us with his "protest," and once other NFL players started doing it, that took the offense and the outrage up a notch.

    I might’ve been a TAD calmer, and said “OK, bring it on, if you really truly want to get shot — isn’t that the whole point here?”

    Good idea... Invite armed terrorists into a residential neighborhood. The idea is to be able to protect yourself as a last result. I'll go with Mas Ayoob's philosophy that it's your responsibility to try to AVOID being in a confrontation, except as a last result.

  • Is Communism Worse Than Nazism?

    MarkL to a fool in paradise
    I don't see Communism as striving for Social Justice. It subjects the populace with the promise of a utopia that never comes. But the animals at the top of Animal Farm sure live well.

    Over and over again, I've heard it said that "Communism is wonderful in theory, but it just hasn't been properly implemented." That's not the case. I can name 3 societies where communism is working wonderfully off the top of my head, without having to give it any thought.

    Bees, ants, and termites.

    These are 3 examples of the perfection of the communist model. Everything is for the good of the collective.

    The problem with communism is that it just won't work when it comes to humans. Human beings are incapable of becoming selfless to the extent for communism to work. Communism requires the sacrifice of all to ensure the well being of the community.

    Free will has no place in communism. Excel at science as a yourh? You will become a scientist. Not really good anything in particular? You'll become what The State needs you to be. You will live how and where The State determines you need to live. Communism worked hard to eliminate religion, and set up "The State" as the official G-d. As we've seen over and over, even family bonds are discouraged, though that was more difficult with the USSR, due to the strong history of the church.

    You will be provided with what you need to survive, no matter how you excel at your work. With no reward for excellence, why bother working hard?

    Most importantly, communism devalues the individual, and cannot allow dissent of any kind. Dissent must be eliminated, and history shows that the most common way of doing that was through an authoritarian government eliminating thosw with the differing views. Communism removes the humanity from the population.
