And the band played on….

Posted in politcs, rankers, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on 3, August 2015 by chockblock


Yet as troubling as that may be, the sixties were in many ways the Boomers’ finest moment. It was at least a fad then to pretend to care about racial justice at home and war abroad, to speak out against pollution and prejudice. But it was mostly just talk. As they came of age, and as idealism might have required some real sacrifice, idealism suddenly became unfashionable.
The Worst Generation, Or, how I learned to stop worrying and hate the Boomers
By Paul Begala


TO some, millennials — those urban-dwelling, ride-sharing indefatigable social networkers — are engaged, upbeat and open to change. To others, they are narcissistic, lazy and self-centered.

I’m in the first camp, but regardless of your opinion, be fretful over their economic well-being and fearful — oh so fearful — for their prospects. The most educated generation in history is on track to becoming less prosperous, at least financially, than its predecessors.

They are faced with a slow economy, high unemployment, stagnant wages and student loans that constrict their ability both to maintain a reasonable lifestyle and to save for the future.

Longer term, rising federal debt payments and increased spending on Social Security and Medicare will inflict a tremendous financial burden on them, threatening their own prospect of receiving promised retirement benefits.

To a considerable extent, that’s the fault of my generation, the baby boomers. We were the children of the Greatest Generation, but we may also be the most irresponsible generation.

We’re to blame for the millennials being such a bunch of jerks, Steven Rattner,

Margaret Sanger and the KKK

Posted in politcs, rankers, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on 24, January 2015 by chockblock


Margaret Higgins Sanger (September 14, 1879 – September 6, 1966) was an American birth control activist, sex educator, and nurse. Sanger popularized the term birth control, opened the first birth control clinic in the United States, and established organizations that evolved into the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Sanger’s efforts contributed to several judicial cases that helped legalize contraception in the United States. Sanger is a frequent target of criticism by opponents of birth control and has also been criticized for supporting eugenics, but remains an iconic figure in the American reproductive rights movement

And now:

As liberals excoriate Republican Congressman Steve Scalise for speaking to a group with a reported connection to David Duke, former KKK member, I’m reminded today—on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade—of a moment that liberals will never dare acknowledge: a 1926 speech to the KKK by one of their most revered ideological darlings, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger.
Reflections on Roe: When Margaret Sanger Spoke to the KKK

And here is the Wikiquote:

Always to me any aroused group was a good group, and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan at Silver Lake, New Jersey, one of the weirdest experiences I had in lecturing. […] Never before had I looked into a sea of faces like these. I was sure that if I uttered one word, such as abortion, outside the usual vocabulary of these women they would go off into hysteria. And so my address that night had to be in the most elementary terms, as though I were trying to make children understand.

In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered. The conversation went on and on, and when we were finally through it was too late to return to New York.

Chapter 29, “While the Doctors Consult”, p. 366. Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography (1938)

And this is the woman who founded Planned Parenthood. She was a racist and a vile human being. Yet she’s lauded by the wackos in the left and the media who believe that the Earth is in a “population crisis”. Like the KKK, she targets the handicapped and minorities.

And yet Planned Parenthood gets taxpayer money.

Ah the sound of liberal hurt feelings:

This is just the crisis to make themselves seem relevant again within the GOP—even if they’re undermining the commander in chief at a pivotal moment.
Why Neocons Love the StrongmanMichael Tomasky, The Daily Beast

It’s likely, then, that the J-20 no more represents the end of US air superiority than did Cope India or the T-50’s debut. What it does represent is the world’s second economy finally joining a club of nations long-accustomed to designing, building and operating advanced fighter aircraft.
China’s Over-Hyped Stealth Jet, David Axe, The Diplomat.

Meanwhile, it remains to be seen how much the J-20’s design changes matter and indeed how effective an aircraft it is. But it is evident that the plane’s flight testing, at least, is far more than just a publicity stunt.

It must hurt when reality overtakes liberal fantasy.

For decades the left’s orthodoxy was that the West was to make peace with Russia/The USSR, China and that “the tide of war was receding”.

Russia is INVADING the Ukraine. They used TBM’s on Georgia. China is building a modern networked force.

And yet, Michael Tomasky makes current events be all about the left and how those meanie Neo-cons runied everything.

Lest we forget, the media and the left (I repeat myself) went easy on Putin, Hugo Chavez and China. David Axe seems to think that the US military sucks and we have nothing to fear.

So when real life starts to hurt them, they either face reality (and start crying) or escape to fantasy.

President Obama’s foreign policy is based on fantasy.

And so it begins.

Eats Babies

Posted in politcs, rankers, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on 26, January 2014 by chockblock

A villain/overlord so evil that they literally eat babies.”-TvTropes

“I hear women talk about how “hard” it is to raise kids and manage a household all the time. I never hear men talk about this. It’s because women secretly like to talk about how hard managing a household is so they don’t have to explain their lack of real accomplishments. Men don’t care to “manage a household.” They aren’t conditioned to think stupid things like that are “important.”
— “Amy Glass”: I Look Down On Young Women With Husbands And Kids And I’m Not Sorry.”

As RS McCain points out, the author may be trolling “mommy bloggers”. has real women reacting in horror at “Amy Glass”.

When I was in college, my friends and I used to joke that extreme feminists ate babies. It was a tasteless joke made by two 20-something slackers who got bored between classes.

This is “Amy Glass” seems to hate families and really hate children.

Women CHOOSE to stay at home with children.

Women and men CHOOSE to have families just like some chose not to.

This is another “how dare you disagree with me” liberal. The thing that turns America off from liberalism is the smug asshole factor. Glass hates families and assumes that she’s better for being single. Frankly if she did eat babies it wouldn’t be a surprise.

Already Wendy David‘s lie about being a single mom is frying her political future. If she had told the truth, the “Amy Glass” crowd would have loved a woman who used a rich man for his money and stuck him with the children. Liberals are all about hedonism and child abuse.

But that don’t play with working Texans.

“Glass” might be an epic level troll. I suspect that she could be a /b/tard or a creation of

If she’s real then the left once again shows why they are made of fail.

An ironic post about health care…

Posted in politcs, rankers with tags , , , , , , , , on 18, January 2014 by chockblock

And so it seems that a nationalized health care system does good business for other countries:

“The researchers also found that more people leave the UK seeking medical treatment abroad than arrive in this country for care: about 63,000 people from the country travelled to hospitals and clinics abroad in 2010, while considerably fewer, about 52,000 people, came here.”

Socialized health care is bad thing(tm). It can’t happen here right?

“ADHD does not exist”

Posted in rankers, tech pron with tags , , , , , on 7, January 2014 by chockblock

One by one, nearly all of Saul’s patients turned out to have some disease other than ADHD, such as Tourette’s, OCD, fragile X syndrome (a genetic mutation linked to mental retardation), autism, fetal alcohol syndrome, learning disabilities or such familiar conditions as substance abuse, poor hearing or even giftedness. A boy who was disruptive and inattentive in math class (but no other) was, simply, bored by the material and needed to be advanced a grade to regain his concentration.
–“ADHD does not exist“, Kyle Smith,

There are many health fads: diets, ideas, suppliments etc. And then their are the trends that hurt people.

Anti-vaccine crusades have resulted in outbreaks, overuse of vitamins has led to health problems, “natural cures” and “alternative medicines” have led to deaths and tons of wasted money.

ADHD is the go-to excuse the left has for: a) providing the excuse that kids won’t lean, B) doping kids so they stay still and C) providing for another class of “victim”.

It’s an industry fed by lazy teachers/school admins, big pharama, doctors and parents looking for an easy out. Ritilin and adderal abuse is a thriving black market.

Future generations will look at ADHD the way we look at phrenology.

And this is what your humanties tax dollars are going towards…

“It is no accident that American progressives put so many of us in mind of our Puritan ancestors: not for their virtues, such as they are, but for their sanctimoniousness, their humorlessness, their grim little mouths set permanently in rictuses (surely Mr. Salesses would insist on “ricti”) of self-satisfaction biting down on disgust. Like the accusers in 17th-century Salem or the contemporary Wahhabist eager to behead such witches as may be found lingering upon Saudi soil, the progressive sees the work of the Archnemesis everywhere at all times — especially when there is something to be gained from doing so.”

Racism! Squirrel! By Kevin D. Williamson ,

“Why did I have to listen in music humanities to this Mozart?” she groused in a discussion of the curriculum reported by David Denby in “Great Books,” his 1997 account of re-enrolling in Columbia’s core curriculum. “My problem with the core is that it upholds the premises of white supremacy and racism. It’s a racist core. Who is this Mozart, this Haydn, these superior white men? There are no women, no people of color.” These are not the idiosyncratic thoughts of one disgruntled student; they represent the dominant ideology in the humanities today.

W.E.B. Du Bois would have been stunned to learn how narrow is the contemporary multiculturalist’s self-definition and sphere of interest. Du Bois, living during America’s darkest period of hate, nevertheless heartbreakingly affirmed in 1903 his intellectual and spiritual affinity with all of Western civilization: “I sit with Shakespeare and he winces not. Across the color line I move arm in arm with Balzac and Dumas. . . . I summon Aristotle and Aurelius and what soul I will, and they come all graciously with no scorn nor condescension.”

The Humanities Have Forgotten Their Humanity, Heather MacDonald,

So yeah, it’s National Review and the Wall Street Journal’s online arms, but it needed to be said.

The American Left has nothing to offer America execpt warmed over Marxist talking points and witchhunts for “racism”.

The right has been accused of hiding behind the American flag, God and tradition in the past. Fair enough. During the Cold War, the US backed despots and a group of politicians used the “Red Scare” to buy votes and ruin some innocent people. Televangelists, crooked politicans and cranks have been using the Bible and “Christian” values for decades. Appeals to traditional values have been a staple of politics as much as doom and gloom.

But with the Affordable Care Act going down in flames, Al Queda re-taking a city in Iraq and their agenda in flames the left needs a crisis. If they didn’t have Duck Dynasty, Fox News, George Bush or GOP scands, they’d invent’em.

The left did invent climate change, income “inequality” and hyped “homelessness”. Welfare and government giveaways are “entitlements” but money to corporate donors (and donor lists) are not discusses because of reasons.

Racism works because it’s such a toxic thing. No one, NO ONE wants to go back to Jim Crow, segregation or the dark past. 50 years ago a black man could be arrested for using the wrong bathroom, now one is president. We’ve beaten racism.

But when you don’t have an agenda it’s better to scream from the rooftops and accuse people of being Nazis/KKK etc. Everything they can’t understand somehow “promotes” white supremacy. Or is racist. Because when asked for a working agenda, they default to the Marxism or screaming that you’re a racist for questioning their agenda.

Freedom Of Speech as long as you agree with them.

But when called out on their McCarthyism they cry crocodile tears.

UPDATE: Head of New York Civil Rights Coalition compares MSNBC rhetoric to McCarthyism.


Cracks appear in the liberal front.
