lol. In light of all the issues that come-up in the skeptic and atheist movements because of Myers and the FreeThought bullies, you just proved TBOgg’s thesis in spades.
Brilliant piece. In my particular ‘issue-interest’ we’ve had the same thing happen. To the point where it’s been hijacked by a bunch of assholes who’ve done their very best to divide and destroy our incredibly broad-and-diverse community with their purity litmus tests in their particular social-justice beliefs.
Beliefs that the majority of us, even within the moderate-liberals such as myself, do not hold to be true in most particulars. And any truths are acknowledgeable are so vastly over-claimed that there’s no room for discussion when the thought-police start-up their trolling and flying baboon patrols.
Sadly, this is nothing new. Now that I’m on the north-side of 50, I’ve spent close to 35-years watching this happen in every movement and association I’ve ever held dear. The fucking special-interest carpet-baggers just have to make it all about them…
I pointed that out in 2007. Obama has made a career out of surrendering. From his first legislative post in Illinois to the Presidency of the US.
The guy just has no backbone. And it’s killing this country which really needs to move more toward the center and away from the right-tilt it currently suffers.
Oh, thank you for that bit of humor Marion. I followed TBogg’s link to the original article. The comments rapidly descended into Benghazi conspiracy theory.
But Obama is just what she wants, just ask him:
During an interview with Noticias Univision 23, the network’s Miami affiliate newscast, Obama pushed back against the accusation made in some corners of south Florida’s Cuban-American and Venezuelan communities that he wants to instill a socialist economic system in the U.S. The president said he believes few actually believe that.
“I don’t know that there are a lot of Cubans or Venezuelans, Americans who believe that,” Obama said. “The truth of the matter is that my policies are so mainstream that if I had set the same policies that I had back in the 1980s, I would be considered a moderate Republican.”
Yeah, he’s really quite the Nixon. Only without the Watergate. Even Reaganesque in some ways…
But what do I know, I’m only a 52-year-old ex-Republican DFH.
Sigh… Another idiotic false equivalency post. You’re good most of the time, but when people with standards a bit higher than yours aren’t interested in sucking Obama’s cock 24/7 you sure get all pissy.
He ain’t that great. He capitualtes way too much. But worse, is how he reinforces the double-standard in law.
When the S&L crisis hit, bankers went to fucking jail under Bush & Clinton. When this bank crisis hit, Obama gave them a free pass instead of sending those fuckers up. Even worse, they went after Joe Sixpacks who tarted up their loan paperwork with the full force of the Federal Government.
And we have Manning, Gitmo, drone strikes, lobbying for FISA, etc…
So, yeah, he ain’t my favorite guy.
We don’t have to “solve it.” It’s solving itself. By 2042 it’s expected that white people will be a minority (less than 50%) ethnic group. Whites will still be the largest group, but they’ll be less than 50%.
Every year, like a retreating glacier, the white-power Republicans get smaller and smaller and smaller.
I grew up in that BS. They’re never going to understand why I left, my brother left, our wives left and none of our children are interested in going back… It’s as if they have tin ears, one and all…
Ok, the editor really needs work…
I find it kind of interesting why they need money. They should be covered by a liability policy for just this reason. So, I’m guessing it’s a shameless plea for money. But if they really don’t have coverage, either it was an incredible screw-up on their part or they voided their coverage.
And voiding this coverage is not that hard. For those who’ve never had professional insurance policies there are three major traps that get a lot of idiots burned.
First, the policy will have a rider that requires you to notify them within a short-period of time (30-days or less) of lawsuits or THREATS of lawsuits AND if corrective action is possible, you must take it. If you fail to notify, you’re not covered.
Second, if you fail to take reasonable corrective action, you’re not covered.
Third, if you refuse settlement, you’re not covered.
When NRO doubled-down on the Mann attacks they may have screwed themselves. Also, they may not have taken it seriously and not reported it the insurer.
I bet they settle after they milk it for all the money they can get.

Douhat is confusing me… The right doesn’t want brown ‘anchor’ babies and are more than willing to ship those future ‘takers’ back to Mexico, even if they are Americans…
Further, Catholics (the white kind) are supposed to have lots of kids, by litters if possible.
Yet he’s had just ONE white (I presume) Catholic baby AND he want’s more brown babies?
I think his column was hacked by Anonymous. That’s the only rational explanation for this black hole of cognitive dissonance.
I understand the Chinese not getting it… But Brietbart.com? Oh, wait, they have something in common — ideological blinkers that keep them from seeing reality… Though I’m not so sure about the Chinese…

Looking at this morning’s map, it’s 50/50.
49ers vs Packers — playoffs. Packer WR catches ball and falls to ground. Two, TWO, defenders touch him. Ref doesn’t blow whistle, WR runs 50 more yards into endzone. TD Packers, 49ers lose.
49ers vs Packers — playoffs. Packer TE pushes off linebacker, literally throwing him to the ground, because Linebacker was there for the INT on the slant. 49ers called for Pass Interference, Packer score later on drive and win.
49ers vs Packers — Packer RB fumbles, 49ers recover. Ruled non-fumble, Packers go on to score and win game.
49ers vs Packers — Jerry Rice clearly fumbles the ball and referees rule no fumble. 49ers later score game winning TD on the drive (The Catch II.)
49ers vs Giants — FG attempt goes wonky. Giants attempt a pass. 49er defender tackles receiver to prevent catch. Everyone knows it’s a bad call, even 49er fans (of which I’m one) refs rule incomplete, 49ers should have penalized and Giants gotten another kick at the spot of the foul.
Broncos vs Raiders — playoff. Lyle Little CLEARLY fumbles (and admits to it later), Raider linebacker recovers and runs it in for TD.
Other items — the ‘fumblerooksie’ (illegal forward laterals disguised as ‘fumbles’).
Vinnie Testeverde’s head is not a football, costing the Seahawks a win, a playoff berth and D. Erickson his job.
And I could go. And on. And on. And on.
And I can do it game after game after game, decade after decade. Bad calls are part of the sport. The Steelers own at least TWO Superbowl Rings because of bad calls. The 49ers are likely out at least one. Other fans of other teams can say the same thing.
Well, this is going to get him a 7-figure speaker’s income on the Wing Nut Welfare speaking circuit — Them Evil Libruls Got Me Fired for the Truth!!!
I have a friend who is a bow-hunter. It’s not that hard. You have a blind or a tree stand. You use your sound lures. The deer walks into the clearing and and you make a ‘bleating’ noise like a goat. The deer stops, because that’s what they do when that noise is made and you shoot it at close range, usually 20-to-25 yards.
It’s not like you’re shooting a fast moving target at a couple of hundred yards out.
Bears are easier. You set up camp. Put up a stand. The bear comes to raid your donuts which you leave in your tent and you shoot him. My friend says he does let the bear eat some of the donuts first…

This isn’t a political event. I know politics frequently ends up in it. But it’s not a partisan political campaign and that’s generally the line.
So, it’s ok to be in uniform in a rally, a if it’s something like a gay pride parade which probably had everything from leathermen to Log Cabin Republicans in it. What you can’t be in is a direct partisan campaign.
So, yes to Gay Pride parades, 4th of July parades, the Macy’s Day Parade, Veterans Day parades, I think even the homophobic Boy Scouts Parade during the Jamboree is ok….
But no to Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, etc., political events.
BTW, the reason these sailors asked, was because this kind of thing is a gray-area after years of the don’t ask, don’t tell policy. Plus, if their commanders wanted to retaliate in a back-door fashion by claiming it was a ‘political parade,’ they’d have little recourse but refusing non-judicial punishment and opt for a career destroying (won or lost) Court-Martial.
Those people are really stupid. And the wing-nut blowhards in the thread that followed it.
Oh, don’t worry, Romney will outsource the 4th of July to a factory in China. If you’re one of America’s lucky-duckies and get a job as a pool boy or maid, you’ll be able to pick up your own 4th of July at Walmart at the bargain price of $6.88.
I have little reason to believe America will ever be free of the Palins…
See what I mean?
