Trying out a new host, here is my new podcast “Harfing Around”
Brian Williams taking RPG fire? Saving puppies from fires? Getting the squirts from ingesting storm water during Katrina? Bitch please. When it comes to exciting living, look at my record. I mean being the only survivor at Little Big Horn, thanks to my having a handy Apache helicopter, and bedding Salma Hayek, AND Halle Berry at the same time? Yeah, top those feats Williams!
Or how about the time I beat Michael Jordan in one-on-one? Or the times Urban Meyer asked me to lay out the game plans when my Gators beat Ohio State and Oklahoma to win National Championships? Let’s see Brian Williams do that! Then there was that time I saved kids at a burning orphanage AND the Budweiser Clydesdales from a nuclear attack by ISIS all in one damn night! What ya got now Brian Williams? POSER!
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!
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?
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.
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.
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– 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
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
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.
