Daily Round Up: Derp Still In Full Force

Enough of Mattress 'I like it in the butt' Girl.

She's proven to be a liar. She sounds more like, as the story unfolds, a promiscuous woman scorned or something.

She's taken up more than enough space with that vapid display of 'art'.

Other than that, I'm rather disappointed it hasn't been reported if it's a memory foam mattress she's carrying around. I also hear her parents are psychiatrists.

What's that saying? The cobbler's children have no shoes?


Canadian and white?

Mind blown.


Obama arrogant?

Come on!

I no beleeb!

".To pick just one of countless examples, there was a White House summit on health care in 2010. The president invited members of Congress to discuss the issue in good faith. He then proceeded to treat every concern, objection, and argument from Republicans as dumb, dishonest, or emotional. They were, according to a column by Milbank, “stepping into Prof. Obama’s classroom.” Milbank marveled at how the “teacher” treated them all “like his undisciplined pupils.” Whenever someone said anything politically inconvenient, the president replied that those were just partisan “talking points.”

What if they are indeed "dumb, dishonest and emotional? Ever tink of dat? Hm? 

Tawt so.


Dumb news when you need it. The New York Times specialty it seems these days.

It's funny how liberals always accuse conservatives of being simplistic yet at the same time make blanket statements like 'your brother created ISIS.'

Incredible even. Nah. Obama dealings with Syria and own actions in Iraq had nothing whatsoever to do with contributing to that. No sirree.

Other than that, at 19, the paper of record saw not only fit to interview Sister Vapid not once but twice.


Allan Brauer dudeboy extraordinaire.

Wait. Hang on. Make that doucheboy extraordinaire.

"...Now. Perhaps you’re a big fan of this TPP plan. Perhaps you are a big fan of Obama. Perhaps you are not a fan of Elizabeth Warren or Warren Democrats. That’s all OK. Comparing criticism of an economic treaty to the lynching of a black child? Not OK. I mean I’m not even really sure what the hell that means, but clearly he’s equating a politician getting criticized for his political views with a teenager being murdered for his race. So people on Twitter, including me, told him about how not-cool that tweet was. His response tells you an awful lot about the ditch we’ve driven this left-wing movement into."

If you dare delve more into the dreadful world of progressive logic.


Some of you may be really wondering why I'm still on this ranty anti-progressive rampage. I'm not sure except to sing...


I recently purchased a 12 gallon compressor at Sears. While I was pleased to get it for $80 off the list price because it was a floor demo, I was still uneasy for some reason. The salesman (if you can call him that) assured me all the pieces were in place.

Unfortunately, when I brought my toy home my brother-in-law noticed it was missing a small oil cap which is easy to miss.

No big deal. Just go to Sears and get one, right? Ha,ha. When I got there, some poor shmuck was overwhelmed in the Craftsmen department but was accounting for himself quite well. Originally he informed me I had to call Sears parts to get it. When I called them, they sling-shot me back to his department. Surprised, he took initiative and said he would order me the piece. Mission accomplished with little blood and sweat shed.

I waited a few days and called to follow up regarding the status of the order. He informed me he could in fact not do it and that I had to call Sears parts department. Mildly annoyed I did.

The piece was $4. Shipping $20. This is when I laid into the representative for the utter unprofessional and clueless process Sears has customers go through. Not only did they sell me a product missing a piece, nobody wanted to take ownership following some stupid policy of 'it's not me' nonsense. Not one person stepped up to say, 'sorry sir, we will pay the shipping.'

I'm thinking of going back to Sears to show them the bill and insist they pay for it but I don't know if I feel like going back to waste my time only to be told some idiotic excuse why they can't.

I don't need the stress.

The once iconic Sears should change their name to Putz.


Being white is micro-aggression.

Too funny.


Apparently, minorities can't be racist they say. Koreans and Chinese are known to be pretty racist societies in Asia but they're minorities here. They can carry their prejudices here but all is good because minority.

A bit of a hole in the argument I think.


Russians remember their Second World War dead.

The way I see it, if you go through life demanding trigger warnings, I think you have deeper psychological issues.

"...The clinical psychologist Barbara O. Rothbaum and her colleagues assessed the symptoms of 95 survivors of rape or attempted rape over the course of several months. Although 94 percent of the women met symptomatic criteria for PTSD about two weeks after the trauma, that number dropped to 65 percent after approximately one month and to 47 percent after approximately three months. The data indicate that about half of rape survivors recover naturally from PTSD within three months of the assault. "

"...Trigger warnings are designed to help survivors avoid reminders of their trauma, thereby preventing emotional discomfort. Yet avoidance reinforces PTSD. Conversely, systematic exposure to triggers and the memories they provoke is the most effective means of overcoming the disorder."

 Should that have come with a trigger warning?


Why does Thomas Sowell make so much sense?

And writing for a Jewish journal! The shock! The horror!

"Totally ignored was the fact that a black policeman in Alabama fatally shot an unarmed white teenager, and was cleared of any charges, at about the same time that a white policeman was cleared of charges in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.
In a world where the truth means so little, and headstrong preconceptions seem to be all that matter, what hope is there for rational words or rational behavior, much less mutual understanding across racial lines?"

"...The "legacy of slavery" argument is not just an excuse for inexcusable behavior in the ghettos. In a larger sense, it is an evasion of responsibility for the disastrous consequences of the prevailing social vision of our times, and the political policies based on that vision, over the past half century..."
Overplaying your card is always risky.


In the no-shit category:

"It’s not every day that left-leaning academics admit that they would discriminate against a minority.
But that was what they did in a peer-reviewed study of political diversity in the field of social psychology, which will be published in the September edition of the journal Perspectives on Psychological Science."


Yukon Ho!

What do a Chilean mining company, an Illinois-based pharmaceutical firm that just sold for $12.8 billion, and a gold producer from Colorado operating in Turkey have in common?
They're all registered in Yukon.

Well, I know you don't do it in Quebec; particularly when the hillbillies in the PQ are in power. Then they do all sorts of nasty linguistic nonsense behind the scenes.

Heard a Pequiste on the radio say 'Montreal is on the right path economically because bike paths.'

Not. The. Place. For. Entrepreneurs.


It's not the protest or strikes per se the problem.

It's the mind set and narrative behind it that's worrisome.

“...Nonsense!” the critics reply. “Only the rich can afford to work for no money and therefore nobody should be allowed to do so.”

A federal contest to design a logo for Canada’s 150th birthday sparked a furious online protest under the slogan “My Time Has Value.” The winner of the contest would have received $5,000 and a certain amount of valuable exposure, but the losers would not have won anything, in spite of having worked for some period of time, and that, according to the protesters, is unacceptable.

Similar online campaigns attempt to shame anyone who would ask a musician to perform at an event without offering decent monetary compensation. No, we are told, “exposure” is not compensation. Can’t the musician make that determination? No, and it’s wrong even to ask.

I’m sometimes told that I go too far afield in drawing these comparisons. Sure, a minority of students want to be paid to go to school, but in 2012 they were protesting a tuition increase and now they’re protesting “austerity” and that’s it—there’s no point reading more into it.

But the same could have been said, only a few years ago, about the very idea of a “student strike”—ask someone from outside Quebec!—whereas now it’s becoming commonplace. The leader of the opposition wants it to be formalized in law. A change in terminology becomes a legislative change before you know it.

If we don’t fight this pernicious tendency now, we might very well come to regret it later.


Opinion on why Democrats dominate Maryland.

Indeed it's not the only state it controls. In addition to progressive states like Massachusetts and California, Democrats had a nice run in places like Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi too.


Loaded laws and loaded questions.

"The NRA's vision for our country is simple: guns for anyone, anywhere -- no questions asked. The Loaded Laws they're pushing in state capitals across the country are really frightening. Now is your chance to weigh in by picking one of the two options below. "

Of course this is not true. NRA members are, like most organizations, have differing opinions. But as far as I can tell, the NRA doesn't support additional legislation taking the position there are already enough restrictions and feel those should be enforced.

Far cry from 'guns for anyone, anywhere - no questions asked.'


Pew Research on the NRA and guns.


More facts on the NRA. The more you know...

"...In 1934, the NRA supported the National Firearms Act, which served to regulate and tax firearms that were considered used by gangsters at the time. They also supported the Gun Control Act of 1968, which expanded on the system to license firearm dealers and prohibit criminals and those with mental impairments from owning firearms."

"While African Americans were being terrorized by the Ku Klux Klan, where the Klan were sometimes aided by local law enforcement, the NRA setup charters to help train local African American communities to be able protect themselves. The most prominent case being in 1960 in Monroe, N.C. where the local National Association for the Advancement of Colored People head Robert Williams also chartered an NRA Rifle Club that successully defended an assault on one of their leader's homes by the KKK without casualties."

"According to FactCheck.org, nearly half of the funding for the NRA comes from membership dues alone...." (Isn't that usually the case with non-progressive entities? They have full support voluntary support of people)

"...The NRA's current stance on gun control is to enforce existing laws more aggressively. In 2008, in response to the Virgina Tech shooting, the NRA helped to pass the "NICS Improvement Act," which would provide increased funding and grants to states to report vital information to the National Instant Background Check System (NICS), such as mental health. The NICS is used for background checks of potential gun buyers. Unfortunately, the system has been woefully underfunded (receiving only 5.3% of the authorized funding) and reporting has been lackluster. In addition, the NRA has pointed out that those who lie on their background checks when purchasing firearms are for the most part not prosecuted. In response to this, Vice President Biden claimed that they "don't have the time" to prosecute such violations, which, by the way, carries a minimum 5 year federal sentence, if convicted under the Gun Control Act of 1968."

The NRA clearly has a rich history in American life. It really is a shame how it's being depicted these days all for a narrow issue.


A new Conservative ad has taken a different track. Rather than attack it chooses to focus on Trudeau's experience closing with 'Justin Trudeau. Just not ready.'



Free speech. Media still doesn't get it.
