I’m thankful for a lot, most of which boils down to, “I live in America” which, despite all Obama could do, is still the greatest nation on the sorry ball of mud.
I’m also thankful for
Since I didn’t so much vote for Trump as vote against Hillary, if/when he starts acting like the northeast liberal he is, I won’t be too upset.
As Heinlein wrote, the difference between ‘bad’ and ‘worse’ is always more stark than that between ‘good’ and ‘better’.
And life under a Hillary POTUSy would be especially stark.
Some stuff about an idiot who doesn’t get that America is the greatest force for good this world has ever seen, the idiot who should be thankful that nation is such a good place that he’s paid $millions to play a game as he’s bashing the people who pay his salary.
The idiot who doesn’t stand for the National Anthem decided to wear a shirt with Fidel Castro, racist, murderous, commie dictator to Miami. Jebus, that’s almost as stupid as when Cameron Diaz wore her Mao-wear to Peru, where they’re still recovering from Maoist guerrillas.
“One thing that Fidel Castro did do,” he said, “is they have the highest literacy rate because they invest more in their education system than they do in their prison system, which we do not do here, even though we’re fully capable of doing that.”
Moh-ron. The whole island is a prison system and what good is being able to read if the only things you can read are what your murderous, commie dictator allows you to read?
Minitrue outlet lets the GOP know they need to not get cocky.
Now, they’d write the same article no matter what, they do hate the GOP after all, but they’re right about one thing. The national GOP needs to not get cocky, Trump didn’t just beat the Dems and their allies in the Democrat/Media entertainment complex, but he (and we) defeated the assholes in the national GOP.
They’re going to try to do business as usual, if Trump plays along too much, expect a lot of shit thrown at them.
A chillingly hilarious thing I’m thankful for, I don’t live in the UK.
50 British academics sign open letter demanding that people they disagree with lose any right to freedom of speech.
“His position as a senior editor for the ultraconservative Breitbart News website enables him to openly articulate his hardline misogynist, white supremacist and xenophobic ideas to an online audience that is expanding at an alarming rate.”
Heh. They’re calling a gay man “misogynistic”. Isn’t that hate speech? Shouldn’t they lose their freedom to spew such hate?
This is one of those things that’s hilarious, in a chilling, We Hate Western Civilization, sort of way.
May the reader take note that as of today (21/11/1016), the Milo Yiannopoulos event at Simon Langton Grammar School has been cancelled after the school received advice from the Department for Education’s counter-extremism unit.
So who does the ‘counter-extremism unit’ think are extremist and not? C’mon, you already know that.
The Brit Dept of Education is the one who declared the British National Party to be too extremist to be allowed
Education Secretary Michael Gove has pledged to give head teachers the power to dismiss teachers who are members of the British National Party
The BNP, of course, is one of the major parties in the UK, they’re sorta like Tea Partiers who do not like things like Sharia courts and no-go Muslim zones, so they’re haters.
So how does the Dept for Education feel about British history and Islamic history?
UK’s new national history curriculum mandates Islamic history but makes British history optional
Not being all in on the destruction of Western Civilization is ‘extremist’ while hating your nation and its history is ‘mainstream’ and tolerant.
We are not afraid enough of orchids. This list of 8 of the freakiest flowers is very orchid heavy. It’s as if orchids are just messing with us until they perfect their pod-people.
This is the next step in the progression.
It would be sorta funny if we lost our world to orchids.
