It’s Friday which means links and hawtness, what more could you ask for as you roll your way into another weekend. This weekend has come faster than any dirty metaphor that you care to poke something naughty at. I mean, it’s positively flown right by me. This must mean that I’m getting old. Pretty soon I reckon that I’m going to understand what the speed of light means. Those old folks that toddle around really slow are merely attempting to brace themselves against the sheer awfulness of watching time accelerate to warp speed around them.
I remember when I was 8 how slow the winter session of school went. Waiting for that 2nd term to finish was literally the slowest experience of my life. The second slowest experience was waiting to get laid when I was a horny teenager. But now life moves fast, and if you don’t slow down it might pass you by, or something like that in some movie some time in some other place.
So I have some links for you, and some resident hawtness. I hope that they tickle your parts that cause you to laugh and squirm. But unless you’re female, hawt, and under 25, I don’t want to visualize any of that. I reckon that most of my readers won’t fall into that category. Probably none actually. Thank God for that.
On with it.
The president made his State of the Union speech this week. What surprised me is that they still consider it to be a union. He should rename it to the State of the Confederacy. Watch half the country literally start shaking. Anyway, apparently some of the women in the crowd of politicians chose to wear white in protest against something? Come on, they’re chicks so it was just about drawing attention to themselves. The conversation to wear white probably went something like this:
Dumb female polly 1: “I know; let’s all wear white to show our solidarity!”
Other dumb female pollies: “Oh, that’s so brilliant! That will show them all! Hoo-rah! We are the best! They can’t hold us down!”
All dumb female pollies thinking the same thing at that moment: “None of these bitches better look better than me!”
Confused male intern on the sidelines who was only taken on because he has a cute bottom random thoughts: “Protest against what? What a bunch of stupid cunts.”
… the old misogynistic dinosaurs of yesteryear warned against allowing women into senior positions on the grounds they’d not take them seriously. From accounts I’ve read on Twitter, each woman in white sat through Trump’s address with a face like a bulldog licking piss off a thistle until he said:
No-one has benefited more from a thriving economy than women, who have filled 58% of the newly created jobs last year.
At which point they rose to their feet and delivered a round of applause in congratulation to…themselves.
I have been tough on Gavin McInnes in the past, but I am so pleased to see that he has found a pair and is going after the SPLC.
When McGinnes started Proud Boys, it was basically a social thing — meet-ups for fans of his podcasts — but then the media started paying attention, Trump got elected, and “Antifa” started harassing the Proud Boys. Last year, SPLC evidently decided to target McInnes for destruction, and this lawsuit is about his refusal to be destroyed. Keep in mind, SPLC is also being sued by Baltimore attorney Glen Keith Allen, and many other organizations are said to be contemplating their own lawsuits.
Fight back, destroy their institutions, and sow the field with salt.
The following makes it crystal clear that the prog left have used immigration solely to influence voting patterns in strategic voting districts across our nations.
Montana is 89.4% white. Those whites vote conservatively. You’re fine with taking power from them by transplanting a population that will not vote like them. It’s just interesting that this is morally fine, and republicans acting against this hypothetical scenario is wrong.
The monstrous nature of the open society lies in the fact it assumes choice, based in anything but objective criteria, is invalid. The male who marries a female because of biology is acting from bias. The male who marries a man, because of economic benefit is acting rationally, because his decision is based on objective criteria. This view of people strips them of their humanity and turns them into economic units, cursed with a sense of moral duty and a belief in free will. They must be broken of those beliefs.
This is what lies behind the sudden promotion of race mixing on television. Every ad must feature a mixed race couple. It’s not so much a denial of biology, it is a denial of choice driven by anything other than objective criteria. Preferring your own race or ethnicity is invalid, because it places a barrier between you and others. Breaking up these antiquated notions of choice is not about racism. It’s about destroying any barriers between people, as those are by definition invalid in an open society.
The prog left is in an open orgy to ban discrimination. But discrimination is merely another word for choice.
And what of Giridharadas’s economic radicalism? Socialism has never worked anywhere, it produced mass slaughter in the 20th century, and it’s still producing disaster (e.g., Venezuela) today. Giridharadas’s basic problem is that he’s close enough to the top of the socioeconomic heap — the son of a successful businessman — that he can’t see how important a free economy is to those of us much nearer the bottom.
There is no way that Chavez and Maduro could have pursued a pro-Venezuelan policy aimed at achieving economic independence without inciting fury, subversion and sanctions from the United States. American foreign policy remains as focused on oil as it was when it invaded Iraq under Dick Cheney’s regime. U.S. policy is to treat Venezuela as an extension of the U.S. economy, running a trade surplus in oil to spend in the United States or transfer its savings to U.S. banks.
By imposing sanctions that prevent Venezuela from gaining access to its U.S. bank deposits and the assets of its state-owned Citco, the United States is making it impossible for Venezuela to pay its foreign debt. This is forcing it into default, which U.S. diplomats hope to use as an excuse to foreclose on Venezuela’s oil resources and seize its foreign assets much as Paul Singer hedge fund sought to do with Argentina’s foreign assets.
Just as U.S. policy under Kissinger was to make Chile’s “economy scream,” so the U.S. is following the same path against Venezuela. It is using that country as a “demonstration effect” to warn other countries not to act in their self-interest in any way that prevents their economic surplus from being siphoned off by U.S. investors.
Not all things are as clean and simple as often made out.
