    Click on the ‘toon y’all.

    There is no more old media/new media, left/right, right/wrong…there is only the elite and the proles, them and us.

    Time to burn this mofo down.

    “You can always tell hard TYRANTS by the soft words they use.”

    There. Fixed it for ya. Yer welcome.

    “Trust and Safety Council to Restore Republican Values?”

    Ummmm. . .so long as you define “Republican” the same as GOPe RINO, ain’t gonna happen. Fa’queem.

  • B Woodman

    Oh, yeah. I read that story last week about Twit. Thank goodness I don’t use it. And as karmic payback, I’ve also heard that Twit’s stock is tanking as a direct result of the “Trust And Safety Council” thing. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving group of assholes.

  • Ed Woods

    The difference between republican values and the Republican party is interstellar in
    scope.

  • Pamela

    So how much Viagra, Levitra and Cialis did the hard men need to take to get their way with the soft words?

    • Bill G

      None. They get their thrills without any chemical help by doing to the people what other old men use the chemicals for.

  • Spin Drift

    I also don’t Twatter and barely Book with Faces (only post Cankles cartoons) so the new establishment people try to control the message. Are they kidding, the toothpaste is out of the tube people. The truth will set you free.

    Twitter is for twits.

  • I don’t do twatter, (I like that, I may use that again if it’s okay with you Spin), and the Republican Party, per se, is not what I always saw as the Republican Party any more. Republican values, out here in “flyover country” remain, as does the hope for the restoration of them.

  • Bill G

    I think it’s Glenn (Instapundit) Reynolds who keeps saying that “1984” was supposed to be a warning, not an instruction manual.

  • NotYetInACamp

    The GOP elite people would not let me in on my own terms.
    (Worms – Freudian slip) Words really do have meaning and can have power. They can have the power to be and to build or to be malleable and to distract and to destroy truth.
    People can learn to see concepts, and to not see them. Cultures have inherent programming. People use that in this asymmetric war.

  • NotYetInACamp

    I do not twatter. i should as we should use all tools in this war. We must take it to the enemy in their home territory. I go to things like ACLU Bill of Rights Day celebrations and explain how without the people’s bearing arms they can just forget about the rest of the rights as they will only exist if the UN declared only legitimate power to hold guns, the state, permits them to exist. Nancy Pelosi and others say that they give people rights.
    Words have meaning, only if defended and asserted by somebody.
    Direction? To the sound of guns…

  • Dread

    In this country, (US of A) guns and resolve set us free, and the idea was defined by words. That idea, backed by guns and words kept us free. Today, they are trying to shut us up, take our guns, and kill the idea. Say, goodby to freedom, unless we can find the resolve to do it all again. Hold on to what we’ve got. Never let go.

  • Pamela

    Why is it that most of the people who want CONTROL are always at least half a bubble off level?

    • PaulS

      We all want control, the full bubble is what makes us realize that it just wouldn’t be right to force our will on others. I fear that if those that aren’t on the level continue on their current path, the only way left to get them there is to pop the bubble.

    • B Woodman

      Pamala,
      We all want CONTROL. It’s just that most of us only want CONTROL over our own lives. It’s the tyrants (see “soft words” above) who want CONTROL over others.

      Pardon the all caps. Damned kindle touch keypad.

    • Old Codger

      Pamela asked, “Why is it that most of the people who want CONTROL are always at least half a bubble off level?”

      Because, as Michael Savage puts it, liberalism is a mental disorder.”

      • woodNfish

        They are not “liberals”, they are leftists. Leftists hide behind PC words they create to mask what they truly are. The root of “Liberal” is “liberty” Do you really think these asswipes believe in liberty? They don’t. Stop helping them hide behind words and call them what they are – leftists, fascists, socialists, communists, totalitarians, and asswipes!

        • B Woodman

          Let me add to the list: Libtards, Libturds, Marxists.

  • JTC

    1A defines freedom, 2A keeps it. Tyrants who would deny the former fear the latter, which the reason (the only reason, not “for the children”) they want to redefine IT with those soft words.

    And while I don’t do the twits, someone else said all the tools should be used while they are available and to the extent they can be exploited. Trump does this masterfully, that’s his business acumen, using his adversaries’ own weapons against them…don’t know how he has avoided being silenced, too big to censor?

    • woodNfish

      Trump is a private citizen and businessman running for President. Running a business is difficult and with as many as Trump has created he is bound to have some failures. Dealing with the federal mafia regulations makes creating a successful business even more difficult and is the major reason most new businesses fail within the first year.

      You can try and trash Trump all you want, but he is the only candidate who isn’t taking big donor bribes, and he is the only real conservative candidate who can win. Cruz, Rubio, and Carson are all taking bribes. They have no choice. Trump is for nationwide concealed carry, tax reform and lower taxes, border control and no amnesty for illegals who will be deported if they don’t leave on their own, and no anchor babies, no common core and an end to obama care, and American jobs for Americans. What is not conservative about any of those platforms?

      You have a choice – you can vote for the same crooks who have sold us down the river and lied to us for the last 40 years, or you can vote for Trump who will try and change all that.

      Your choice, but if you vote for anyone but Trump, you are just selling out all of us, including yourself.

      Trump for President 2016! It’s time to take out the garbage!

    • JTC

      Not sure how many billions Christian Adams has, or you Codger. Trump is worth between 4 and 10. Let’s err on the low side and say he’s worth FOUR THOUSAND MILLION DOLLARS. Gimmee some of that business failure!

      • woodNfish

        Trump says he is worth $8 billion in his book, Crippled America.

        • JTC

          Yes, he’s also said 10 while Fortune says 4+, which is why I said err on the low side. As money is the measure of business success, I’d say that qualifies.

          • JTC

            An example of that success and ability to get shit done is the yuge ocean-to-intracoastal Mar A Lago estate in Palm Beach from where he gave his speech last night; that was my old stomping grounds and I passed by it hundreds of times during the period after E.F. Hutton widow Marjorie Post will it to fed gov as a presidential retreat. They never used it and had no idea how to turn that fabulous white elephant into a profitable palace, but Trump did.

            After the state turned it down for free, DT bought it in the mid 80’s for five mil and spent much more than that transforming it into a world class luxury retreat, now estimated to be worth more than 100 mill. I call that business success, and deserved when you have the unique skills to make it happen.

            And ask the former mayor of NY about the Rockefeller Center skating rink sometime…or just google it, or read DT’s book.

      • KathyP

        JTC – the skating rink that Trump refurbished when NYC wasn’t up to the task is the Wollman Rink in Central Park.

        • JTC

          Thanks Kathy, I read the book many years ago and while the details of the process are firm in mind, some details might be lost to my infirm of mind… 🙁

    Sic Semper Evello Mortem Tyrannis, know your enemies, use their strengths against them, know your AO, use the terrain to your advantage, operate in plain sight, peer into the shadows, be honorable, be vigilant and when it comes time to fight when all other avenues are exhausted, shoot to kill.

    By the way, I voted for Ted yesterday and for this one reason. He has all the right enemies.

    Spin said:
    “know your enemies, use their strengths against them, ”
    And one of those is to get the enemy to argue amongst themselves so as to “divide and conquer”. So why are conservatives arguing the little details while the enemy scales the walls?

    If the leftist/socialist/communist (Demonrat) agenda is scarier than the fascist (GOPe) agenda by all means vote against the worst (in your opinion) of the two evils offered.
    I have voted against the demonrat agenda but by so doing Do Not endorse the GOPe agenda.

    This Off Topic and very late. One reason being that I wanted to contact the blog owner about “rebuttle posts”. He said no personal attacks and don’t write another War and Peace. (Thanks Chris)

    Army Air Corps became the USAAF by 1941.
    (end quote)

    Which is correct as far as it goes but the USAAF is not the same thing as the USAF. It wasn’t until 1947 that the US Army Air Forces became the US Air Force a totally separate institution.
    My Dad called them the Army Air Corps and who was I to dispute his choice of labels? I wasn’t but a twinkle in his eye until 1948.

    “The National Security Act of 1947 was signed on on 26 July 1947 by President Harry S Truman, which established the Department of the Air Force, but it was not not until 18 September 1947, when the first secretary of the Air Force, W. Stuart Symington was sworn into office that the Air Force was officially formed.”[16][17]

    WWII illustrated the value of airpower, and the need to change the basic organization of the US Military Forces. The result was the creation of a single Department of Defense with a strong Joint Chiefs of Staff with Army, Navy, and Air Force chiefs. In 1947 President Truman signed the National Security Act which established this new defense organization, and along with it the creation of the US Air Force as an independent service, equal to the US Army and US Navy.

    The official birthday of the US Air Force is 18 September 1947.

    In my Dad’s own words he “went from the Army Air Corps to the US Air Force in one day with the signing of two pieces of paper.”
    I based my earlier statement upon his terminology.

      Way off topic but interesting bit of USAF history. You should look up the janitor that is buried at the Air Force Academy. Humble does not begin to describe this American.
