Not a lot of cognition though.
Congressman Tom McClintock, a Republican from California, on Saturday faced a rowdy crowd at a packed town hall meeting in Northern California, and had to be escorted by police as protesters followed him shouting “Shame on you!”
And no arrests were made.
When conservatives do not get violent, merely quote the Constitution, well, that’s entirely different. (From the Age Of Obama)
Said Hart “I tried to express my opinion and tell them that my Constitutional rights had been violated. I began quoting the Constitution, line by line…
…When the Harts left the gathering, they were followed into the parking lot of the community center, and the same young man …took down the license plate number of her vehicle and said – “See if you are able to pay your property taxes NOW!”
Eileen didn’t understand what that shouted threat meant, until she returned to her home with her family.
When they arrived, there were 5 police cars from the Franklinville Police Department. They advised her that the Clayton Police wanted to talk to her about the allegations.
States Hart “For the record, both the police officers DID acknowledge that it was “an allegation.”
Her purse was taken from her and she was put into a “paddy wagon,” transported to the police station-
Her young daughter witnessed the events and was traumatized to see her mother being treated like a common criminal.
She was arrested and booked for “terroristic threats” and “contempt.”
At the police station, she was handcuffed to a chair.
And that’s why we have Trump.
Via David Thompson, we find this Brave Wymyn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! who was at the Berkeley Progriot. Just so you know, she’s talking about Trump supporters, not the mostly peaceful rioters.
Exporting Our Values! Here we have folks turning scientific institutes into religious institutions.
A high-level whistleblower has told this newspaper that America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) breached its own rules on scientific integrity when it published the sensational but flawed report
While in Turkey.
Yamanlar College, a private school established by educators affiliated with the Gülen movement in the western province of İzmir, has been turned into a religious vocational school, part of a group known as “imam-hatip” high schools.
The library of the school was converted into a giant mosque and renamed the “July 15 Martyrs Mosque”…
Just like NOAA!
Scott Adams discusses Ben Affleck and claims it’s an example of “cognitive dissonance”
Watch for the moment Ben has to hallucinate Sam’s opinion from the reasonable position that many Muslims worldwide have non-liberal views to an hallucination about “All Muslims are bad.” Sam and Bill both clarify their viewpoints, with data, but Ben is struck deaf to it. All he can hear is the absurd absolute “all.” He is literally hallucinating.
I’d say that’s giving old Ben too much credit. For cognition that is.
He just knows he’s smarter than the other person so therefore, the other person has to say stupid, hateful things or else Ben can’t keep his feeling of smug superiority.
I don’t know if cognitive dissonance is the best descriptor for that, I’d more go with “aggressively-willful ignorance”.
Especially since we’ve all been here
When you see that reaction in your debate opponent, you won the debate – hard – but you didn’t change anyone’s mind.
I’d say that’s the opposite of cogitating.
In Well, Duh News,
A transexual murderer who was allowed to serve his sentence in a women’s prison has been moved amid claims he was having sex with female inmates.
If Klinger’s gonna wear a dress to get out of the Army, don’t you think some guys might wear a dress to get laid?
About 2,500 years ago, Hanno the Navigator became one of the first Europeans to see a band of gorillas. He had been sent off to explore Africa and had gotten used to bumping into strange and exotic tribes.
So when he found an island full of gorillas, he figured that they were just the funniest-looking group of people yet. Hanno wrote that he’d found “savage people, the greater part of whom were women, whose bodies were hairy, and whom our interpreters called Gorillae.”
He and his men tried to introduce themselves to the gorillas, but the gorillas weren’t too communicative.
I can just see them getting pissed off at the gorillas for being so rude. Since they specifically mention that there were a lot of women, they probably also tried to get a little frisky. I wonder how the gorilla-ettes took that.
The USS Gerald Ford decided to try out its catapult but they didn’t want to waste a perfectly good airplane in case it didn’t work right. So..what to do, what to do.
