“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

When shooting disaster footage, get it right for Pete's sake

So among the most riveting human drama videos on YouTube are the amateur tsunami footage videos, especially ones from Japan. You can’t look away. 

In most of the videos where entire coastal towns have been evacuated to high ground ahead of the wave, there are always random people in cars, motorcycles, or pedestrians who didn’t evacuate. You unconsciously lean closer to the monitor urging them to "Hurry up!!" as you see the wall of water coming and these people desperately racing to escape, but the idiot holding the camera always turns away to catch general footage elsewhere around town. WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?

It’s infuriating!

Like in the screen cap. below, seconds before the water came over that wall, a couple of cars were on that road trying to escape but the camera guy didn't stay with them for some reason. I need to know what happened to those people. Did they make it? Did the wave swallow them up? Did that guy in the car find a road out or did he run out of places to drive, bail out, and make a run for it? Who cares about another one of a hundred houses getting swept off its foundation, when you’re watching a life and death race unfold in front of you? How do you turn away from human drama like that?

What are we doing in Afghanistan that was worth Brent Taylor's life?

North Ogden, Utah mayor and Major in the Utah national guard, Brent Taylor was killed in Afghanistan this week when a "friendly" Afghan commando opened fire on Taylor and others. Taylor had a family of 8 back in Utah.
Can anybody tell me what has been accomplished by us in this God-forsaken abyss in the 17 years we've been dumping money and getting killed there? What?
17 years!!! Afghanistan remains and will always be the same corrupt wasteland of misery and backward, religious zealotry that it was when we got there. Enough money and lives have been wasted there. Let the Taliban, or whichever fundamentalist tribe is strongest, have it.
Nike thinks Colin Kaepernick is sacrificing something. He isn't.

Spartacus gets validation

Heh heh, poor old Cory Booker was feeling blue and disrespected about being left off the "most-despised democrats" list compiled by the hoax bomber.
But Spartacus can rejoice in triumphant self-righteousness this morning. Cops found a pretend pipe-bomb addressed to him too. No doubt in the coming days, you can find Booker in front of every camera screeching about how being a victim of Trump-inspired right-wing terrorism will NOT deter him.
Here's Cory hearing the news that he too got a pretend pipe-bomb and getting the validation he so desperately needs.

Never forget!

17 years ago today.
In case you were undecided about the contribution Islam has made to the rich tapestry of American culture.
The media never show these images or video because they'd have to tell you who did it and you might glean a negative impression of Islam from that, but I have no such reservations.

RIP Burt Reynolds

RIP Burt Reynolds. Here he is in my favorite role of his, Lewis Medlock in Deliverance. His badassery in that role was unmatched in my opinion.

Islam strikes again, literally

So Malaysia ordered two women to be caned six times each, for being lesbians. 

As you know, in the wonderful world of Islam being gay is a crime punishable by death, so they got off easy. 

This, and yet our culturally enlightened moral superiors lecture us endlessly that Islam is equal to every other world religion.

Stevie Wonder blames Aretha Franklin's death on global warming

You'd think even Stevie Wonder could see that man-made global warming hysteria is just a pernicious hoax used to control every human activity, but apparently he buys it too.

Stevie blamed global warming on Aretha Franklin dying. Here's part of what he said. See if you can make any sense of this rambling gibberish......

[“I just feel that all these various diseases that we have and all that is happening in the world in part is because there are those who don’t believe in global warming, don’t be...lieve that what we do affects the world,” he said. “Heat affects the world and affects us. I just hope that people will grow up out of the foolishness and know that we all, by how we think, how we view, how we treat others....."]

Perhaps Stevie should concentrate on finding the right end of the mic and leave the medical diagnostics to others.

Hit 'em where it hurts

Well, the sex scandals have finally started to hurt the Catholic church......in the pocketbook. Parishioners, fed up with the scandals and coverups, have pretty much stopped giving money at church every Sunday.
The cynic in me believes that most churches exist primarily to extract as much money from attendees as possible and no church is richer than the Catholic church. That's why when rank and file Catholics stop giving, it'll hit the church where it hurts most.
Here Pope Francis indicates the weekly rake in the offering plate at the Vatican.

Resist we much, Al Sharpton

Heh heh, beclowned jackass Al Sharpton predictably invoked the memory of "his friend" Aretha Franklin during his TV defense of fame-whore Omarosa, saying Trump needed some "R-E-S-P-I-C-T".
That's right, he actually spelled it like that on national TV on MSNBC. 
Resist we much Al, resist we much!

Makensie Noland shows that a college degree doesn't make you smart

Meet Makenzie Noland, likely future amputee or meal for this 14 foot alligator named Big Tex. 

She is a student at Texas A&M and works at the gator sanctuary where Big Tex lives. She ridiculously claims that she's bonded with most of the 450 gators at the sanctuary and posing with Big Tex for her graduation pic is perfectly safe. 

Heh heh heh, you may bond with them, but reptiles are incapable of bonding with you. To them you are either a food source, food yourself, or a predator. You are not their friend. 

The next story we read will be a eulogy about how she was taken from us so young in life....{{sniff sniff}}. 

Here's Makenzie letting Big Tex get a sniff of what's on the menu and posing with her ring on his nose. The bottom pic is probably the last thing Makenzie will see if she keeps it up.
