Meme Madness



There is some good news today – the “experts” have decided that they now know what happened to MH-370 which disappeared in 2014. They still don’t know where it is, but they announced they know what happened.

If you need to post memes that make up stuff about political figures that isn’t true to show that you dislike political figures, then you have failed to think and have completely failed as a voice for Conservatism.

The Supreme Court has struck down the ban on Sports Betting. This may or may not turn out to be a meaningful thing, but one thing is for certain, anybody who bets on Regular season NBA games is a fool.

Seattle has decided to only steal, sorry, tax, successful businesses $275 a job instead of $500 a job. They still have no plan for what to do with the money, just broad ideas, none of which will actually “solve” homelessness or the affordable housing shortage.

Solutions In Search of Problems



There is much Conservative chatter today over the Broward County schools policy on discipline, which appears to be based in Political Correctness. The effect of the policy is that minority and LGBTQ students who were being arrested at a higher rate than non-minority/non-LGBTQ students stopped being arrested. But there is a bigger question: Did political correctness contribute to the death of seventeen people in Parkland?

The definition of “progressivism” is simple, and direct – use the power and authority of government to solve a perceived social ill. If that social ill is that too many minority students are being arrested in schools, what can be done about it? Well… lower the figures. Okay, technically they used an agreement to reduce the types of crimes being committed to be handled by internal discipline. So… 39… or 23… times later, a problem child starts shooting.

Once again, we’re left with solutions in search of problems. In the 1920’s, we tried prohibition to end a perceived problem and ended up with more problems. The question is, like Prohibition was needed to accomplish another goal, what is needed that the elimination of guns will help accomplish?


Many folks are posting the Gun Control in 1935 China this week. Please… stop it. The meme is historically inaccurate (i.e., “wrong”) and it makes you look dumb.


A Big Announcement of something that I have dreamed about for a long time. We start testing this coming weekend on the 24/7 Podcast 99 Internet Radio Station. If the testing goes well, we are looking at an official launch date of 01 April. Which isn’t a joke!


Hillary Hates Puppies and Other Cute Furry Animals!!!!!

I guess the good news – if there is any – is that 48 hours from now it will all be over. Except that it won’t be will it?

img_3280Regardless of who wins, we are set for at least four years of accusations and counter accusations, investigations, special prosecutors, faux outrage and a complete and ToTaL lack of civility and cooperation. Each side will blame the other and say, “See, I told you so!” Within each party, their various sects and wings will blame each other and chaos will reign. Lifelong friendships will end, and family members will refuse to speak to each other for months, if not years.

There will be both pearl clutching and popcorn munching. And almost no actual governing.

By this point in this grand adventure, the only way you could possibly have been surprised by FBI Director Comey’s announcement – on Sunday no less – that the FBI would not be bringing any charges against Hillary Clinton after the new eMails were found, would be if you haven’t been paying attention or you’ve been reading too many fake stories that match your confirmation bias. The FBI’s announcement – on a Sunday no less – was as predictable as a sunrise, and I guarantee by this time tomorrow it will be the talking point of talking points. Nothing to see here, keep moving, go vote for Hillary.

Like I said, the only people surprised by this are people who got their hopes up because they aren’t really paying attention to what is going on.

For months, pundits on the Right have been screeching that we must ignore the polls. But now that many if not most of the polls seems to show Trump pulling closer (which, by the by, was a predictable as a sunrise) we are told that the polls are good as gold. Personally I remain convinced that Clinton will win and win big. The polls showed Romney closing, and it came to nothing. In fact, it wasn’t even close.  Read the rest of this entry
