RANT: What happened to “I AM WOMAN. HEAR ME ROAR”?

You demand I buy your birth control, but you don’t even require your dates to buy you dinner before using it.

I have been beating the “young women of the world, have you all lost your minds?” drum for quite some time here at Haemet.  And I will continue to do so.  According to Fluke and the other lefties, the plight of women is so dire that they are left pleading before Congress to pay for the condoms and Pills that their lame-ass sex partners won’t pay for.  Could we humiliate young women any more?

*** end quote ***

We’ve already covered that the “23 old L3 young girl” is not what she appears to be. More “trojan horse”; than “poor student”.

Now let’s pick up this fellow good, but very crudely put, point.

Where is the pride? The self-reliance? The strength?

My paternal grandmother: married at ~13 on the docks in Germany, came steerage to the US, traveled the Oregon Trail, bore 16 children – three died in childbirth, her husband died in a construction accident while she was pregnant with her last — my Dad. Raised them all. I can only imagine what she’d say today about these whiney woman. “Pay for me to have sex.” Or even worse, “I’m powerless to control myself.” She’d have her infamous peach switch out in a heartbeat.

One advantage that the USA has over most of the rest of the world is that they oppress the female population. Barefoot and pregnant thinking. We, OTOH, have women that are powerhouses. Create wealth, Preform Bravely, and add immeasurably to the Commonweal. Not in the socialistic sense, but in that the fruits of their labor enrich everyone.

Let’s just take a quick look — Margaret Thatcher, Mother Teresa, Princess Diana, Madame Curie, Oprah, and on and on.

One of the appeals of Taylor Swift is that she empowers young girls. One of her videos shows here competing with a boy head to head in class. And, she wins. Unabashedly proud. She’s what we want more of. Fair competition makes everyone better.

We need all hands on deck for these struggles.

This “testimony” in front of Congress was so “disempowering” as to be embarrassing.

I have been helped, and helped others, many times in my life. But I can’t ever imagine begging for a handout for a recreational activity.

It disgusts me and it’s an insult to women everywhere. And, it’s an insult to the taxpayers.

I could understand a sick kid testifying that she like R&D into her condition as opposed to welfare / warfare items.

But this is unbelievable.

This is the biggest problem that the USA faces?

POLITICAL: It’s the “effete”; not the “elite”

Reclaiming language on the right

*** begin quote ***

At any rate, I would argue there are many other words which better describe the true nature of our liberal friends. One I would propose is “effete.” The same online American Heritage Dictionary defines the word this way: “marked by self-indulgence, triviality or decadence; as in an effete group of self-professed intellectuals.” I am sure you see the relevance. Another definition from the same online source is: “unable to produce, sterile.” Liberals surely do not produce original ideas; as for sterility, we can but hope.

*** end quote ***

I agree.

From hence forth and forever more, I will refer to the Progressive ex-Liberal self-annointed Socialist “elite” as “The Effete”.

It fits them so much better.

POLITICAL: Beck is morphing into a libertarian

Beck breaks from the pack
Posted: April 23, 2010

*** begin quote ***

But more importantly: good guy Glenn is finally espousing a foreign policy compatible with limited authority and republican virtues.

*** end quote ***

Glenn Beck has been slowly moving toward being a libertarian in thought, word, and deed.

The shift to a “humble foreign policy” is essential to getting our troops home and our “collective nose” out of everyone else’s business.

The question is it real or is it like “Rosie O’Donnell”? Where after the fame is no longer needed, the star rips off the mask and we see the truth.

RANT: The first “Sertorius” for Cronkite?

Tavern on the Green and our delusional leaders

I propose the minting of a new award, like the Oscars, Emmys, Tonys and Golden Globes, for today’s cheerleading, sycophantic media. We’ll call it the “Ludwig,” named after Hitler’s favorite broadcaster during the war, Ludwig Sertorius. German newscasters began having a hard time toward the end of 1942 with sharp and fatal reverses in Russia and North Africa. None of them could spin as prize-winningly as Ludwig Sertorius.

When British Gen. Bernard Montgomery counter-attacked German Gen. Erwin Rommel’s advance at El Alamein in Egypt, sending his “Afrika Korps” into history’s longest and fastest retreat, old Ludwig faced the microphone and – with the Germans fleeing at top speed, mind you – told the German people, “All British attempts to interfere with our systematic advance to the rear have been successfully frustrated, defeated and smashed!”

*** end quote ***

I’d suggest Walter Cronkite for the first “Sertorius” award. (Reserving the “Ludwig” for Ludwig von Mises, who is far more deserving.) Cronkite mislead me about his being a liberal. I thought he was being an unbiased reporter. Seeing him sailing with the Hero of Chapaquidick and his statement after his retirement made me realize that all those years he had an agenda!

INTERESTING: Gallup continues the false dichotomy — liberal versus conservative!

“Conservatives” Are Single-Largest Ideological Group
Percentage of “liberals” higher this decade than in early ’90s
by Lydia Saad

*** begin quote ***

PRINCETON, NJ — Thus far in 2009, 40% of Americans interviewed in national Gallup Poll surveys describe their political views as conservative, 35% as moderate, and 21% as liberal.

*** end quote ***

This part of that “false choice” nonsense.

The labels — conservative and liberal — have zero meaning.

No one defines what they mean.

The Nolan Chart http://www.nolanchart.com is a much better way to assess views. It’s not single line spectrum.

Argh!

RANT: Pelosi seeks to divert attention!

Pelosi Wall Street Probe Follows Pecora After Crash (Update1)
By Mark Pittman and Laura Litvan

*** begin quote ***

April 21 (Bloomberg) — Wall Street may be heading for the deepest investigation of its practices since a congressional panel’s probe of abuses following the 1929 stock market crash.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to push for a comprehensive inquiry, saying that three-quarters of Americans want to know what led to the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and the collapse of Bear Stearns Cos. and Merrill Lynch & Co. She favors one patterned after Senate Banking Committee hearings led by Ferdinand Pecora starting in 1933, according to her spokesman, Nadeam Elshami.

*** end quote ***

And who investigates Congress?

Because, imho, “their fingerprints” are all over this mess — Dodd, Franks, Pelosi, and Reid!

Bush doesn’t escape clean, but they did block him.

The SEC, FTC, FDIC, and the Justice Department could have “blown the whistle”.

There’s enough blame to go around, but Pelosi is seeking to once again divert attention from her own troubles and that of her fellow congress critters.

Throw them all out!

Never waste a good crisis, Clinton says on climate

By Pete Harrison

*** begin quote ***

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told an audience Friday “never waste a good crisis,” and highlighted the opportunity of rebuilding economies in a greener, less energy-intensive way.

*** end quote ***

The socialists, who want to boss us around, are rubbing our nose in it.

They think it’s good policy.

The sheeple don’t even notice it.

Time for a tax revolt.

“Never waste a good crisis” to force some of the slugs out of office.
