Cry-Bullies are ruining Comedy

June 30, 2015

It’s one of my dad’s favorite jokes, but the only way to tell it today is to check to see if the coast is clear first. The coast is rarely clear in comedy these days as racial epithets, rape, homosexuality, and everything else funny have become verboten. However, there is hope. While alternative comics have been bitching for years about the end of comedy, especially stand-up comedy, the mainstream is finally clueing in. Almost-billionaire Jerry Seinfeld recently told ESPN that PC is ruining comedy. “I hear a lot of people tell me, ‘Don’t go near colleges. They’re so PC.’” he told Colin Cowherd, before adding, “[Students] just want to use these words: ‘That’s racist;’ ‘That’s sexist;’ ‘That’s prejudice.’ They don’t know what the fuck they’re talking about.” He later doubled down and told Seth Meyers it’s starting to affect his own, squeaky-clean comedy.

Obama quietly removed an “anti-slavery” provision from the TPPT Agreement

June 30, 2015

Right before he publicly attacked the Confederate flag as a “symbol of slavery,” President Obama quietly removed an “anti-slavery” provision from the Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement.

“The provision, which bars countries that engage in slavery from being part of major trade deals with the U.S., was written by Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.),” The Huffington Post reported in May. “At the insistence of the White House, Menendez agreed to modify his language to say that as long as a country is taking ‘concrete’ steps toward reducing human trafficking and forced labor, it can be part of a trade deal.”

“Under the original language, the country that would be excluded from the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership pact is Malaysia.”

Robert E. Lee evil, Che Guevara good in the Left’s brain washed minds

June 30, 2015

With the revulsion against Confederate symbols that has resulted from shooter Dylann Roof’s internet picture with the Confederate battle flag, Robert E. Lee has been put in the gunsights of social radicals. Lee was one of the two great generals of the Civil War and due in part to his good fortune in having an excellent biographer in Douglas Southall Freeman, is generally regarded as the greatest, although it should be noted that Grant won the war.

It’s past time to ban the ISIS Flag in America

June 30, 2015

Corporate chain Walmart has apologized after a store in Louisiana baked a cake bearing the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) flag following its refusal to bake a cake with a Confederate flag.

“An associate in a local store did not know what the design meant and made a mistake,” a Walmart spokesman told ABC News. “The cake should not have been made and we apologize.”

Charles Netzhammer went to his local Walmart to order a cake with the Confederate flag that stated, “Heritage Not Hate.” The bakery refused to do so since the company ordered a ban on the flag after a gunman murdered nine people at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina.

Phil Mickelson gives me the Willies

June 30, 2015

Phil Mickelson has been linked to an illegal sports gambling ring after a former bet handicapper admitted to laundering nearly $3million from an unnamed client reported to be the championship golfer.

A report from ESPN’s Outside the Lines said that Gregory Silveira, 56, of La Quinta, California, reached an agreement to plead guilty on three counts of money laundering that took place between 2010 and 2013.

Silveira is a former bet handicapper and was working for an offshore gambling organization.

An unnamed ‘gambling client’ listed in court documents is said to be Mickelson.

Mickelson, 45, a five time PGA Tour Major champion, has not accused of a crime and experts say he is unlikely to face charges because federal laws focus on those running gambling operations rather than the source of the money.

The ‘Know-Betters’ know better than you

June 29, 2015

In the 1850s there was an active political movement that became known as the “Know-Nothings,” because they considered themselves semi-secret, and members, when questioned about the group, were supposed to say “I know nothing.” Of course, a secret political party doesn’t have much effect, and quickly the Know-Nothings were pretty overt about telling everyone around them that they knew nothing, over and over again.

It seems to me there’s a semi-secret political party at work in the U.S. now: the People Who Know Better.

Celebrities, LGBT leaders, and progressive politicians remain silent over ISIS murders of gay men

June 29, 2015

The gay fashion icons had made some decidedly unfashionable remarks about same sex marriage and gay parenting, including “The only family is the traditional one,” along with a reference to “synthetic” children.

The negative response from both the LGBT community and straight people was, I think, quite appropriate. But it only deepened my frustration over the relatively modest amount of news coverage and the surprising absence of protest over an issue of far greater importance to gays, lesbians, and all people of good will: the executions of men suspected of being gay by Islamic extremists in Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and elsewhere in the Muslim world.

In recent months ISIS has released photos and videos of its masked members dragging these men to the rooftops of tall buildings and pushing them off, to the apparent delight of crowds below. In several cases, the hapless victims reportedly survived the fall, only to be stoned to death by onlookers.

Questioning Gay Marriage: Beware the Cry-Bully Brigade

June 29, 2015

Especially in light of Justice Kennedy’s sweeping inclusion of custody and birth certificates in his definition of gay adults’ Fourteenth Amendment “equal protection” rights, gay marriage has a much greater impact on children than it ever could have had on gay couples. Whereas gay adults may get married, then get divorced, and even remarry to the opposite sex if they wish, children placed in mother-mother or father-father homes are irreparably estranged from half or all their heritage, and permanently denied a mother or denied a father

‘Ted 2’ movie scorches Political Correctness

June 29, 2015

Since the childhood wish of his best friend John (Mark Wahlberg) brought him to glorious life decades ago, Ted (a three-foot tall stuffed teddy bear voiced by Seth MacFarlane) has gone about the business of living the life of a slacker, whose only ambition is to get high while cracking wise during “Law & Order” marathons. By extension, this uneventful life has avoided the snare of the United States government.

That ends when Ted decides to grow up, if only just a little bit.
